Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by pressing Light Punch, followed by a second Light Punch, Abigail performs a quick, upward backhanded strike. After delivering his initial attack, Abigail brings his fist down to strike the opponent a second time.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
This is one of Abigail's target combos. Because this combo consists of two consecutive Light normals, the damage output is minimal at best. However, is equivalent it has a faster startup than his Abi Twist target combo. It is also +3 on block, making this one of Abigail's best tools in the neutral game. Even if the opponent blocks the target combo, it pushes them back about half screen, thus resetting the neutral game.
The range of both attacks is decent enough to keep his opponent at a distance. This is useful when pressured against other rushdown characters. By using this target combo, Abigail can maintain spacing between his opponent, where he can use his long-range normals to keep them back. Abigail can also cancel either the first or second attack into his special attacks. However, the pushback makes it slightly difficult to get a full combo.
