Gameplay Overview

Mai is a beginner friendly character with great neutral. Her moveset allows her to apply pressure, zone and perform all sorts of aerial tricks. As a fireball character Mai will get to throw more of them without fear of anti fireball supers or GC roll if you put her on point. She's fine coming in later too as her supers offer utility as well.

Mai is a perfect character for players who want a tool for every situation, who are always on the move and who like amazing mobility options.
Pros Cons
  • High Hop: Mai hops higher than most characters which puts her above a lot of buttons that would normally tag hops. She can also hop over standing opponents which means she can cross them up at her leisure.
  • Great crossup: As mentioned above Mai can hop over standing opponents and cross them up which most characters cannot do. This makes her difficult to block. Her jB has a great hitbox and is very active so she can press it pretty early and it can beat the startup of the opponent's anti-airs sometimes, it's impossible to low profile it, it's easy to combo off of, and it's often really ambiguous.
  • Air options: Mai has a couple moves to change her jump arc. j214P will make her stall a little before diving and that can throw off the opponent's timing or avoid a dp. j2B always moves her towards the opponent so she can use that to correct if she overshot their position. She also has a wall jump to make escaping the corner easier.
  • Great fireball: 236A travels slowly allowing Mai to use it as coverage while she approaches. This can limit the opponent's ability to move or challenge her. Pay attention to how they respond to this.
  • Small frame: Mai's 2B puts her incredibly low to the ground and makes her dodge a lot of air buttons. She can also run under a lot of characters as they hop and avoid attacks that way.
  • Limited Reversals: Mai has no invincible moves for less than 2 meters. This also means you'll have to judge which action is appropriate each time the opponent jumps at you.
  • Slower than average run speed: Just that. Offsets her air mobility a little bit. You'll still need to play grounded sometimes.
  • No Cancellable Far Standing Normals: No special cancels on far standing normals limits her damage potential at range.

  • Mai floats slightly upwards and falls down.
  • Its main use is altering the jump arc, as well as applying ambiguous crossup situations. Must be blocked standing and grants hard knockdown on hit, forcing yet another guessing situation. Unsafe on block, but can be made plus as a meaty attack. If you want to make yourself safer on block, make sure to cancel Ukihane into Air Musassabi no Mai.

  • The second hit juggles but the only way to combo afterwards is to quick max it.

  • Mai spins and creates a trail of fire with her tail. Nullifies projectiles upon contact. Normal versions only negate regular projectiles.
  • A version = Hits somewhat later, launcher in the corner. pretty safe on block, and can be made plus if done meaty or from further away. Frametraps when canceled from lights.
  • C version = Hits almost instantly and hits twice. Because its first hit lands faster than A version, using the C version makes certain combos possible. Normally unsafe on block, but can be made plus if done meaty.
  • EX version = Go-to launcher for every situation, regardless of the position in the stage or during a combo. Hits 3 times and has faster startup than the C version. Technically negates EX projectiles but impractical as it takes a long time for the flame hitbox to appear.

  • Mai's projectile.
  • A version = The projectile travels slowly and Mai recovers quickly afterwards, giving her an opportunity to run behind it to apply pressure. This is an ok way to end blockstrings, though the blockstun is quite short and could actually leave Mai punishable if she's too close. Regardless, it's still a good method of forcing the opponent to block on oki or after a restand situation. Mai can also use this version to deal extra damage in stun combos, since Mai can retreat to fullscreen distance, throw A Kachousen, run behind it and do whatever she wants next.
  • C version = The projectile travels faster, but Mai doesn't recovery quickly. This version can also be used during blockstrings and restands, but Mai can't really do much afterwards due to the slower recovery. Therefore, this version is more used as a pure zoning tool.
  • EX version = The projectile travels the same speed as the C version, but Mai recovers faster now. Hits twice, regardless if it gets blocked or if it hits. It just needs to collide with the opponent in order to activate the second part. Destroys regular projectiles and clashes with EX projectiles. The fan does not spin upwards in either case.

  • Mai does a cartwheel and flies forwards with her elbow. Unsafe on block, but can be safer if a crouching opponent blocks it.
  • B version = Has faster startup, meaning it is the go-to version to end small combos, like off of 2A.
  • D version = Most damaging meterless combo ender. Hard knockdown with plenty of time for oki.
  • EX version = Launcher, hits 5 times on its own and usually 3 times during combos.

  • Mai performs a huge leap across the stage, depending on which direction is chosen. Cancelable into Ukihane (j.2B) at any point. If there is no wall nearby, she will just end up performing a jump. If there is a wall, she can either keep holding the button to perform Air Mussatatsbi no Mai, or do nothing to drop slowly to the ground. While she's dropping Mai can perform an air normal, though she cannot do j.2B, j.CD, or supers.
  • There seems to be no difference between A and C versions, but it does affect the angles of the followup Air Mussatatsbi no Mai.
  • EX version = This has a hitbox on the jumping portion of the move which acts as a launcher. Can go into Ukihane (j.2B) if needed, however, there is a better option. By doing j.214AC, Mai will perform EX Air Mussatatsbi no Mai. This is the part of this move that allows further combos. Despite the input itself being like an EX move, it does not cost extra meter. During combos, it can either hit 2 or 3 times, but this doesn't really affect the options she can do afterwards.

The EX version also has some projectile invincibility, giving Mai an extra edge in zoner match-ups.

  • A version = Mai flies at a 30° angle.
  • B version = Mai flies at a 45° angle.
  • EX version = Launcher. Hits 3 times if done high enough and is slightly minus on block. It can be used as crossup. The hitbox is bigger than the j214AC version.

  • Mai does a cartwheel, engulfs herself in fire and flies towards the opponent. Go-to Supermove due to the fact it can be done both on the ground and in the air. Hard knockdown upon contact.
  • Level 2 version goes through projectiles during the startup. The invulnerability stops once she has performed the cartwheel.

  • Mai creates a huge pillar of fire around herself. Due to its lack of horizontal range, it must be done up close in order to connect. Can be followed up in the corner with specific conditions. Hard knockdown upon contact.
  • Nullifies projectiles, including Supermove projectiles. Level 1 version loses to Level 2 projectile Supers, but Level 2 version beats them.
  • Doesn't combo into MAX Chou Hissatsu Shinobi-Bachi properly. Use that super first if going for an advanced cancel.

  • Can be done both on the ground and in the air. Goes through the projectiles (probably fully invincible for all attacks?), hits fullscreen and does huge damage. Integral part for Blowback hit confirms, as well as simply whiff punishing stuff on reaction. Can also be cancelled from Air Mussatatsbi no Mai.
  • If done in the air, the pre-attack cinematic is significantly shorter and the move launches quicker.
