Gameplay Overview

Whip is a mid-range specialist who has some of the best range in the entire game. She's an excellent character to outpoke the opponent with and can use her Strength Shot to mix up the opponent from far away. Not only that, but she herself also has a very threatening approach game with moves like j.CD, j.C, and Hook Shot, making her a tricky character to defend against. Moves like these and her 2C sweep ensure that her opponents are never comfortable on wakeup, even when she's far away.

Whip can be very rewarding, but equally demanding to play. Playing as Whip requires more spatial awareness than most, if not all, other characters in the game. Most of her moves can go from being safe to unsafe just from bad spacing alone. However, the inverse also applies: Whip's moveset will reward you for your good spacing by making some moves much safer than their frame data numbers would have you think. Making the wrong move as Whip can be punishing due to her relatively slow frame data, and most of her moveset requires that you are very deliberate with your movement and actions.

If you are looking for a character that can control a large amount of space and harass opponents from mid-range, Whip is here for you as long as you are willing to be extra conscious about your spacing and remain selective about when you commit to risky options, such as Boomerang Shot.

Whip works in every position on a team, but arguably does best in the second slot. Whip does not ask for too much meter to run her offense, and her combos are very meter-efficient. However, starting with at least 1 bar allows her access to EX Hook Shot as an approach option, and her 1-bar combos can deal some serious damage.
Pros Cons
  • Strong Air Presence: The sky is yours. Neutral Jump C (also referred to as 8C) is a Swiss army knife in Whip's tool kit (see notes on that move here) that allows her to control a huge amount of air space, and any attempt to jump in on Whip can be easily shut down by a Boomerang Shot.
  • Very Long Range: Whip has a whip (shocker!), which gives her all the range of a whip. 2C and 8C control a huge amount of space, and most of Whip's other normals are capable of stopping approaches fairly well.
  • Oppressive oki: Whip does not let opponents wakeup without taking some sort of guess, even at mid range. She has multiple ways of hitting overhead or low from far away, and her ability to ambiguously cross up is outstanding.
  • Good mixups: Strength Shot is a built-in 50/50, and just being at mid-range distance will make your opponents feel uneasy. Keep your opponent guessing from mid-range and you will find that most characters will not have the range to contest Whip without taking guesses on their approach options.
  • Slippery movement: Whip is harder to catch than most, with a slightly floaty jump and access to a double jump. On top of these, moves like j.CD ensure that approaching Whip is dangerous, even if she is retreating. Whip likes staying in her mid-range sweet spot, and she can maintain it well with smart movement. She can also hop over any character in the game while they are standing, even huge ones like King of Dinosaurs.
  • High Commitment: Whip requires that every movement and action you take is extremely deliberate. When taking guesses as Whip, her toolkit ensures that the odds are usually in your favor. However, wrong or even straight up bad guesses can be especially painful, such as an opponent jumping over a poorly spaced 2C.
  • Massive Hurtboxes: Most of Whip's attacks that utilize her whip have huge hitboxes. However, they also have huge hurtboxes that can make trading with certain particularly powerful normals a common occurrence.
  • Awkward Lights: Whip does not really chain her light normals like most characters can. The only light normal she can do that with is cl.B, which has a proximity requirement. While this means Whip effectively circumvents the fact 2B was universally nerfed to 15 damage, it can make light confirms somewhat awkward.
  • Moderately slow frame data: Some of Whip's moves suffer from slow frame data, further contributing to the need for proper spacing in order to stay safe. It isn't all bad, but when you want your 4-frame Close C and you accidentally get a 15-frame Far C instead, it can hurt.

15 Low command 7 4 12 -1 -3 - 15 30
  • Unique 2B with interesting utility applications.
  • Has longer range and slower startup compared to most other 2Bs in the game
  • Your go-to Quick Max route: 2B > 3A > Quick Max
  • Whip stays low to the ground and pivots her back foot to the front. This moves her collision box forward just enough that you can use 2B to duck under an opponent’s jump-in, cross over to the other side and start a combo with close C once the opponent lands. Example here, using Krohnen as a target.

  • Another one of Whip’s most important tools
  • Outstanding air-to-ground with overwhelmingly powerful ability to ambiguously cross-up
  • Very large hitbox
  • Also comes with a very large hurtbox that extends pretty far below Whip, careful using this with a projectile below you
  • After a blocked j.CD, you may attempt to cross with this move by using a hyper hop C while you’re standing close to the opponent. Keep in mind Whip’s hop arc allows her to hop over any character in the game while they are standing, even Dinosaur and Antonov.
  • Hop C has surprisingly large horizontal range, making it an effective “instant” overhead from mid-range

  • Yet another one of Whip’s most important mixup and spacing tools
  • Whip jumps up and swings Voodoo in a downward arc over a large range.
  • Her neutral jump C is one of the best air-to-air normals in the game with outstanding range and a large hitbox
  • Also works as great air-to-ground if you use it on the way down in your jump arc
  • Also works as a jump-in combo starter
  • Also works as decent anti-hop due to its ability to hit enemies at a lower elevation than Whip
  • Again, mind the extended hurtbox
  • Has an odd deadzone just before the tip of its hitbox. It is hard to describe, and you will rarely ever encounter it, but it happens sometimes. Could be patched in a future update.

  • First and last hits are special cancelable
  • Any hit can be cancelled into a Quick Max or super but it is not recommended that you do either
  • Always combos into EX Strength Shot (63214AC)
  • If the opponent blocks this, you can probably stop on hits 2-4 and hope the opponent doesn't notice that you stopped early instead of going for all 5 hits. Going for all 5 hits on block puts you at very high risk of being punished by a guard cancel roll. The second and fourth hits are the “safest” on block (you are still very negative).

  • Command normal with a big hitbox and relatively short startup for its range
  • You can combo into this after 2B
  • Excellent pushback on block makes this a good move for creating space, allowing you to return to your midrange gameplan
  • The pushback is reduced on hit
  • Generally, 2B > 3A is your Quick Max string. Use this to close out rounds
  • 3A > 3A is not at all a true combo or blockstring, but it is decent at stopping whatever approach attempt the opponent makes after the first 3A

  • Whip swings Voodoo twice in an upward arc. Whip's anti-air and reversal tool.
  • High risk, high reward. Does solid damage and is a fantastic, consistent anti-air. However, it is extremely unsafe if it doesn’t hit.
  • A version is slightly faster with upper body invulnerability. It also deals less damage than the C version
  • C and AC versions have full body invulnerability.
  • A & C versions will switch sides, throwing the opponent behind Whip. The EX version will keep the opponent in front of Whip and deal more damage.
  • The first hit is super cancellable
  • Has a deadzone directly above Whip. Use 2D to cover this deadzone. Otherwise, this is your go-to for anti-air.
  • After reflecting a projectile, be ready to do the half circle motion as your opponent is likely to try and jump over your reflect.
  • Don’t forget that one of your supers is activated with a 236236P input; be careful not to spam too many quick half circle motions before pressing A/C, or you might get a super instead of the Boomerang Shot.

  • Whip holds Voodoo in the Strength Shot Stance. You may hold the button to hold the stance, delaying the attack while allowing you to slowly walk back and forth indefinitely. She can cancel the stance with D or let go of the held button to attack. If this stance is held for 120 frames (2 seconds) without moving, it is automatically canceled (same animation as pressing D to cancel).
  • In this version, Whip hits twice, the second hit being an overhead. The overhead causes hard knockdown. Will hit airborne opponents with a different animation and different spacing after the animation, but it is still a hard knockdown.
  • Only A version can be held and cancelled. The EX version (AC) will strike as soon as the input takes place and cannot be cancelled or delayed.
  • The EX Strength shot has two versions. Each can be used one time during a combo, and you can combo the first directly into the second:
    •The first version is used against grounded opponents. After whipping the opponent twice, Whip slides in and kicks the opponent up into the air.
    •The second version is used against airborne opponents. Whip grabs the opponent out of the air, pulls them in and kicks them back up in the same trajectory as the first version. This is guaranteed to connect after the fifth hit of 6A, but in any other situation the animation will not play if the first hit does not connect with the airborne opponent.
    •You can follow these up with a 2D (usually with 2D > Boomerang Shot > super [optional]) but keep in mind that 2D will only hit once during a combo

  • This version does the least damage but has the longest range of any version of Strength Shot
  • Use to frame trap opponents, especially with your 4 frame Close C
  • Use this to combo into normals (2C or Close C) or even specials as it is +12 on hit!
  • Will not hit airborne opponents, no matter how close to the ground they are. You can still catch an opponent in pre-jump, making this an excellent meaty tool.

  • Whip slings Voodoo up into the air and tugs herself up into a aerial spin.
  • In simple terms, this is your double jump; it has no hitbox and deals no damage.
  • You can tiger knee this to perform the Hook Shot immediately after jumping (2147A/C/AC)
  • Can do any jump normal after the aerial spin and Whip can cancel into this move from j.A (only once before hitting the ground)
  • A version moves forward a very short distance and will practically never crossup
  • C version moves forward around the same distance as a forward hop with high potential to crossup
  • AC version will move Whip directly in front of an opponent anywhere on the screen. It also has full invulnerability for the first 10 frames, which can serve as an excellent bait tool for reversals such as Krohnen’s 623A/C (but generally not something like a more traditional DP that would send the opponent airborne)
  • Holding the stick towards the opponent during the AC version will make Whip cross an opponent up. Requires sufficient air clearance and therefore will not crossup if EX Hook Shot is activated at the lowest point of a jump or from full screen.
  • Whip is in counterhit state until she lands after using Hook Shot.
  • If performed after a crossup, the A and C versions will not correct your orientation toward the opponent. The EX version, however, will make you face the opponent and you can even cross back over into the side you originally jumped from by holding your stick toward the opponent.

  • Data in [] indicate values for the projectile.
  • Whip rears Voodoo back and swings it in a downward strike. Hits overhead and grants a hard knockdown.
  • This move will also reflect projectiles, though not like most other reflects.
  • On reflect, destroys the projectile and creates a 1-hit wind ball projectile that slowly travels slightly further than half of the screen before disappearing. Destroys ALL projectiles, even a super projectile (however, a super projectile will also destroy the wind ball)
  • BD version is faster and creates a 3-hit projectile which travels full screen at a slightly faster pace. Has the durability of a MAX super projectile; a super projectile will not destroy this one.
  • Can reflect regular projectiles, EX projectiles, and supers.
  • Use as an alternative overhead to Strength Shot A for mixups
  • Be careful to not accidentally input a backdash or Strength Shot B when trying to reflect a projectile.

  • Whip strikes in front and behind her in a constant barrage with Voodoo.
  • Invincible on start-up and hits both sides of Whip. Useful for anti-air, but has poor range and relatively slow startup
  • First hit can OTG, allowing combo hard knockdown or unteched soft knockdown. IE: 63214C, 4214A/C/AC, 236236B/D/BD etc
  • A & C versions are identical. The AC version knocks the opponent up where Voodoo continues to rapidly strike the opponent for more damage and makes the enemy land closer.
  • The AC version allows for a hop A safe jump or a full jump C meaty cross up. The normal version puts the opponent too far.

  • Whip's Climax - She soars into the air with Voodoo to hit an opponent with a rising knee, constricts the opponent midair, and slams them back to the ground for a 4-hit attack.
  • Whip is invulnerable on start-up all the way to the top of the screen and can be used as a very slow reversal.
  • Despite having a lot more hits in the combo, max canceling from MAX YGW (236236BD) is about the same as MAX Sonic Slaughter (236236AC).
