Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, R. Mika summons her tag-team partner, Yamato Nadeshiko, to assist her in the fight.
The type of attack Nadeshiko performs on her opponent is determined by what direction is held during the V-Trigger activation. By pressing only Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick with no directional input, Nadeshiko drops from above and delivers a body splash on top of her opponent. By pressing back, with Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick together, Nadeshiko delivers a dropkick from the front of the opponent. By pressing forward, with Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick together, Nadeshiko delivers a dropkick from the back of the opponent.
Additionally, the length the buttons held dictate when Nadeshiko attacks. Tapping Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick causes Nadeshiko to attack immediately. Holding Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick delays Nadeshiko's attack for at least a second.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
R. Mika's V-Trigger has a lot of mix up and combo potential. The different variations keep opponents guessing and afraid to hit buttons, perfectly setting up R. Mika’s damaging command throws. Also, this is a 2-bar V-Trigger, which means that R. Mika can easily obtain her V-Trigger without suffering much damage. It is possible for her to use this move twice in one round.
C'mon, Nadeshiko is one of the most versatile V-Triggers in the game. It can help R.Mika close the distance against zoning characters. She can use her V-Trigger to extend combos to inflict maximum damage. However, the most common use of this move is that it gives R. Mika a reset situation. By using her V-Trigger to put her opponent in a mix-up situation where they are forced to guess, R. Mika can surprise her opponent with frametrap combos, or her damaging command throws. One mix-up could easily lead to stun and potentially the victory.
