Executed by pressing Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, Lucia performs a short turn hop and swings her leg downward with an energy-filled axe kick. If no directional input or button is pressed, Lucia rolls up both of her sleeves before dropping back to her stance.
This attack is not considered an overhead. She also cannot cancel this move into any of her V-Triggers. While Lucia can cancel her second V-Skill from most of her normals, it is difficult to perform a combo with Arrest Heel due to its long, 28-frame startup. It does build a bit of V-Meter on hit and on block. The high jump Lucia performs allows her to leap over projectiles on reaction and score a knockdown on hit. She is also -4 on block. Even if properly spaced, some characters can punish her with a cancellable 4-frame normal. While her first V-Trigger, this attack inflicts slightly more damage.
Lucia's first V-Skill gives a faster attack that can hit-confirm from her Light normals, as well as a way to cancel into her Critical Art. Tap-Kick also has more combo and damage potential than her second V-Skill. However, Arrest Heel is a better tool to use in the neutral game. She can react to her opponent's fireballs and punish them while they are recovering.
