Description[edit | edit source]

R. Mika activating Steel Chair.

Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Nadeshiko runs out from behind R. Mika and throw a steel chair at the opponent.

By holding Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick, R. Mika performs Fightin' Dirty. During this move, Nadeshiko runs up to the opponent and takes two swings at them with the steel chair.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Because Steel Chair is a 3-bar V-Trigger, R. Mika has to sacrifice quite a bit of health to obtain this move. Similar to R. Mika's first V-Trigger, the primary purpose of this move is to give her a variety of mix-up opportunities. Steel Chair helps R.Mika extend combos to inflict maximum damage. While this move has a lot of startup frames, the delay can be beneficial for R. Mika. It gives her enough time to create some tricky setups and put her opponent in a mix-up situation where they are forced to guess to block the attack or defend against her damaging command throws

Fightin' Dirty is also used to put her opponent in a reset situation. This move helps R. Mika open up her opponent, string up insane combos, and put them in tricky mix-up scenarios to deal maximum damage. Even though Nadeshiko hits the opponent twice with the chair, the two attacks do not link into each other. This means that the opponent can still block the second attack if they get hit by the first, given that R. Mika doesn't follow-up afterward. However, this gives R. Mika enough time to create some insane resets and mix-up situations that are not only difficult to predict, but also keeps her opponent on their heels.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In professional wrestling, this attack is commonly called a Chair Shot. This is considered an illegal attack (because of the use of a foreign object) that can disqualify a wrestler, costing them the match (unless when such attacks are legal, or even encouraged).
    • Furthermore most legitimate wrestling organizations wouldn't allow the way Nadeshiko swings her chair as it would hit hit the head of smaller opponents. Most wrestling organizations (such as WWE) have banned chair shots to the head because of concussion issues and famously fined Undertaker and Triple H for doing it in a Wrestlemania match.
