Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by pressing Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, Abigail flexes his muscles, anticipating a middle or high attack. By pressing down plus Medium Punch and Medium Kick, Abigail drops to his knees as he flexes his muscles, anticipating a low attack. If timed correctly, Abigail stick his chest out, using his body to absorb his opponent's attack and deflect the impact back at them, putting them in a spin state.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
This move is one of Abigail's defensive options. It has a fast, 3-frame startup, although it's not a reversal. Hungabee is active for a total of 10 frames. If Abigail guesses and times his opponent's attack properly, he absorbs the attack and follows-up with a counterattack of his own. Hitting his opponent with the counterattack puts them in a spinning state. While the initial hit does minimal damage, it allows Abigail to follow-up with a combo. This move can also be cancelled from Nitro Charge.
This V-Skill cannot counter projectiles or any of his opponent's Critical Arts. Additionally, the standing version only counters High and Medium attacks, while the crouching version parries low attacks. Not only Abigail has to guess whether his opponent may attack high or low, but he also has to time the attack correctly. A mistimed parry, or an incorrect guess on a high/low attack leaves Abigail vulnerable in a Counter Hit state.
While Abigail's gameplay revolves around keeping his opponent at a distance with his long normals and inflict large amounts of damage when he's in range, his V-Skill gives him an solid option if his opponent is highly aggressive or predictable. Also, the parry alone doesn't reward much V-Meter. However, hitting his opponent with the follow-up gives Abigail 1/2 of his V-Meter.
