Gameplay Overview

Whip is a mid-range specialist who has some of the best range in the entire game. She's an excellent character to outpoke the opponent with and can use her Strength Shot to mix up the opponent from far away. Not only that, but she herself also has a very threatening approach game with moves like j.CD, j.C, and Hook Shot, making her a tricky character to defend against. Moves like these and her 2C sweep ensure that her opponents are never comfortable on wakeup, even when she's far away.

Whip can be very rewarding, but equally demanding to play. Playing as Whip requires more spatial awareness than most, if not all, other characters in the game. Most of her moves can go from being safe to unsafe just from bad spacing alone. However, the inverse also applies: Whip's moveset will reward you for your good spacing by making some moves much safer than their frame data numbers would have you think. Making the wrong move as Whip can be punishing due to her relatively slow frame data, and most of her moveset requires that you are very deliberate with your movement and actions.

If you are looking for a character that can control a large amount of space and harass opponents from mid-range, Whip is here for you as long as you are willing to be extra conscious about your spacing and remain selective about when you commit to risky options, such as Boomerang Shot.

Whip works in every position on a team, but arguably does best in the second slot. Whip does not ask for too much meter to run her offense, and her combos are very meter-efficient. However, starting with at least 1 bar allows her access to EX Hook Shot as an approach option, and her 1-bar combos can deal some serious damage.
Pros Cons
  • Strong Air Presence: The sky is yours. Neutral Jump C (also referred to as 8C) is a Swiss army knife in Whip's tool kit (see notes on that move here) that allows her to control a huge amount of air space, and any attempt to jump in on Whip can be easily shut down by a Boomerang Shot.
  • Very Long Range: Whip has a whip (shocker!), which gives her all the range of a whip. 2C and 8C control a huge amount of space, and most of Whip's other normals are capable of stopping approaches fairly well.
  • Oppressive oki: Whip does not let opponents wakeup without taking some sort of guess, even at mid range. She has multiple ways of hitting overhead or low from far away, and her ability to ambiguously cross up is outstanding.
  • Good mixups: Strength Shot is a built-in 50/50, and just being at mid-range distance will make your opponents feel uneasy. Keep your opponent guessing from mid-range and you will find that most characters will not have the range to contest Whip without taking guesses on their approach options.
  • Slippery movement: Whip is harder to catch than most, with a slightly floaty jump and access to a double jump. On top of these, moves like j.CD ensure that approaching Whip is dangerous, even if she is retreating. Whip likes staying in her mid-range sweet spot, and she can maintain it well with smart movement. She can also hop over any character in the game while they are standing, even huge ones like King of Dinosaurs.
  • High Commitment: Whip requires that every movement and action you take is extremely deliberate. When taking guesses as Whip, her toolkit ensures that the odds are usually in your favor. However, wrong or even straight up bad guesses can be especially painful, such as an opponent jumping over a poorly spaced 2C.
  • Massive Hurtboxes: Most of Whip's attacks that utilize her whip have huge hitboxes. However, they also have huge hurtboxes that can make trading with certain particularly powerful normals a common occurrence.
  • Awkward Lights: Whip does not really chain her light normals like most characters can. The only light normal she can do that with is cl.B, which has a proximity requirement. While this means Whip effectively circumvents the fact 2B was universally nerfed to 15 damage, it can make light confirms somewhat awkward.
  • Moderately slow frame data: Some of Whip's moves suffer from slow frame data, further contributing to the need for proper spacing in order to stay safe. It isn't all bad, but when you want your 4-frame Close C and you accidentally get a 15-frame Far C instead, it can hurt.

25 Mid command 5 3 11 +1 -1 - 30 60

A quick, short jab with Whip’s empty hand.

  • Whiffs against most crouching opponents, but will hit taller crouching hurtboxes such as Antonov.
  • An ok hop check, but the range is very small.
  • Chains into other light normals

Whip kicks her foot forward at about thigh level.

  • Fast poke, decent range. Throw it out to disrupt your opponent’s pressure.
  • Special cancelable, combos into 624AC

70 (30+40) Mid special 15 8 (7) 5 16 0 -2 - 70 (30+40) 120 (60+60)

Whip swings the whip twice for a 2-hit attack with slow startup.

  • Both hits are special cancelable. First hit can be whiff canceled.
  • Even on an airborne hit, the second hit pulls the enemy closer.
  • The whip also acts as an extended hurtbox. Most whip attacks will share this property, to varying degrees of severity.

A short stamp to the ankle with Whip’s front foot. Hits low.

  • Can be chained into itself once
  • Hits low while dealing more damage than your average 2B
  • Great move for stagger pressure.
  • Close B (x2) > 2B > is a solid string that can be followed up with 3A or 624AC, depending on whether it is hit or blocked.

Close C

70 Mid command 4 4 19 -6 -8 - 70 120

A very fast back fist with Whip’s whip hand.

  • High pushback, even on hit. Still reliable for starting combos.
  • 4 frame startup makes this a fantastic tool in Whip’s kit. Use this for frame traps, punishes and hop stopping. Also generally a more favorable combo starter than close D, even if it does 10 less damage.

80 (40+40) Mid command 7 3 (8) 6 18 -3 -5 - 80 (40+40) 120 (60+60)

A 2-hit double strike with Whip’s back foot and front knee.

  • Both hits can be canceled.
  • Canceling the first hit leaves Whip closer than normal, which is important when cancelling into 6A*5, as the closer range allows for combo routes not normally accessible after hitting both of close D’s attacks. Typically only necessary for meterless midscreen combos.

Crouch Normals

Crouch A

25 Low special 10 5 14 -4 -6 - 30 60

Whip quickly strikes the whip down at the ground.

  • Safe, midrange poke that hits low.
  • This move can hit OTG. Remember to try and hit this after landing a sweep, super or j.CD.
  • Good for disrupting the opponent’s movement from a distance. You can think of this as a second sweep attack with both the risk and reward toned down.
  • Hitbox leaves a very small deadzone directly in front of Whip, be careful using this at point blank range. At this range, however, just use Close B instead.

Crouch B

2B
2B
15 Low command 7 4 12 -1 -3 - 15 30

Whip stays low to the ground and pivots her back foot to the front for a light kick at the ankles. The brief forward movement comes with useful utility applications.

  • Has longer range and slower startup compared to most other 2Bs in the game.
  • Your go-to Quick Max route: 2B > 3A > Quick Max
  • This attack briefly moves Whip’s collision box forward just enough that you can use 2B to duck under an opponent’s jump-in, cross over to the other side and start a combo with Close C once the opponent lands. Example here, using Krohnen as a target.

Crouch C

crouch C
2C
2C
70 Low command 12 2 26 SKD (+21) -9 - 70 120

Whip sweeps her extended whip along the ground. Hits low. Unlike most other characters, Whip’s sweep is activated by pressing 2C instead of 2D; this is her sweep.

  • A sweep with outstanding range that serves as one of Whip’s most important mixup and spacing tools.
  • Has a deadzone similar to her 2A.
  • Can be used in option selects to catch a roll
  • Don’t forget to hit the opponent with a 2A after landing this move in the corner for extra free damage

Crouch D

2D
2D
80 Mid command 12 4 23 -6 -8 - 70 120

An upward handstand-kick of some sort. Unlike most other characters, Whip’s anti-air normal is activated by pressing 2D instead of 2C; this is not a sweep.

  • Can be canceled into specials
  • Covers the deadzone directly above Whip (and does it well) that Boomerang Shot (426P) cannot cover, use this if an enemy tries to full jump into you while you’re backed into the corner. Outside of this scenario, this move is not actually very good as an anti-air; use 426P instead.
  • Launches on hit against an airborne opponent. This can be used to start or extend combos. Will not launch a grounded opponent.
  • Will always hit after either version of EX Strength Shot (624AC).

70 High - 14 7 1 on ground - - - 70 120

Whip swings the whip down below her. Very, very good cross-up attack that serves as one of Whip’s most important moves in her kit.

  • Outstanding air-to-ground with overwhelmingly powerful ability to ambiguously cross-up
  • Very large hitbox. Comes at the cost of an equally large hurtbox under Whip, be careful about using this move with a projectile underneath you.
  • Whip’s hop arc allows her to hop over any character in the game while they are standing, even Dinosaur and Antonov. This makes Hop C a very powerful option for mixing up the opponent.
  • Hop C has surprisingly large horizontal range, making it an effective “instant” overhead from mid-range

jump jump

70 High - 13 5 1 on ground - - - 70 120

Whip swings her whip down in front of her. Very large horizontal range. Sometimes also referred to as 8C.

  • Her neutral jump C is one of the best air-to-air normals in the game with outstanding range and a large hitbox
  • Also works as great air-to-ground if you use it on the way down in your jump arc
  • Also works as a jump-in combo starter
  • Also works as decent anti-hop due to its ability to hit enemies at a lower elevation than Whip
  • As with other whip attacks, mind the extended hurtbox
  • Using this in short proximity of an enemy while in neutral can be risky due to how much time the opponent has to run under and low profile for a combo.

Whip strikes the opponent with Voodoo’s pommel in a downward diagonal angle. Like any other jumping CD, this attack locks the opponent in a hefty amount of blockstun to force your turn on offense.

  • Outstanding hitbox placement and active frames make this a very powerful air-to-ground. This is Whip’s primary pressure tool when she is ready to go on the offensive
  • Great option on opponent’s wakeup or after they recovery roll from a 2C or j.CD
  • Also a great option for attacking while hopping over your own projectile reflect

A 5-hit attack where Whip repeatedly strikes the opponent with the whip. Keep pressing A up to 5 times to continue attacking.

  • First and last hits are special cancelable
  • Any hit can be cancelled into a Quick Max or super but it is not recommended that you do either
  • Always combos into EX Strength Shot (63214AC)
  • If the opponent blocks this and you don’t cancel the first attack into Strength Shot D, you can probably stop on hits 2-4 and hope the opponent does not notice that you stopped early instead of going for all 5 hits. Going for all 5 hits on block puts you at very high risk of being punished by a guard cancel roll. The second and fourth hits are the “safest” on block (you are still very negative).

  • Generally, 2B > 3A is your Quick Max string. Use this to close out rounds

Whip swings Voodoo twice in an upward arc. Whip's anti-air and reversal tool, one that is uniquely tied to a 426 input and is therefore much easier to use on reaction than your average reversal.

  • High risk, high reward. Does solid damage and is a fantastic, consistent anti-air. However, it is extremely punishable if it does not hit.
  • A version is slightly faster with upper body invulnerability. It also deals less damage than the C version
  • C and AC versions have full body invulnerability.
  • A & C versions will switch sides, throwing the opponent behind Whip. The EX version will keep the opponent in front of Whip and deal more damage.
  • The first hit can be super-canceled.
  • Has a deadzone directly above Whip. Use 2D to cover this deadzone. Otherwise, this is your go-to for anti-air.
  • Remember that one of your supers is activated with a 236236P input; be careful not to spam too many quick half circle motions before pressing A/C, or you might get a super instead of the Boomerang Shot.
  • Safejump: Immediately hyper hop j.CD after the animation ends

Whip holds Voodoo in the Strength Shot Stance. You may hold the button to hold the stance, delaying the attack while allowing you to slowly walk back and forth indefinitely. She can cancel the stance with D or let go of the held button to attack. If this stance is held for 120 frames (2 seconds) without moving, it is automatically canceled (same animation as pressing D to cancel).

  • In this version, Whip hits twice, the second hit being an overhead. The overhead causes hard knockdown. Will hit airborne opponents with a different animation and different spacing after the animation, but it is still a hard knockdown.
  • Only A version can be held and cancelled. The EX version (AC) will strike as soon as the input takes place and cannot be cancelled or delayed.
  • The EX Strength shot has two versions. Each can be used one time during a combo, and you can combo the first directly into the second:
    • The first version is used against grounded opponents. After whipping the opponent twice, Whip slides in and kicks the opponent up into the air.
    • The second version is used against airborne opponents. Whip grabs the opponent out of the air, pulls them in and kicks them back up in the same trajectory as the first version. This is guaranteed to connect after the fifth hit of 6A, but in any other situation the animation will not play if the first hit does not connect with the airborne opponent.
    • You can follow these up with a 2D (usually with 2D > Boomerang Shot > super [optional]) but keep in mind that 2D will only hit once during a combo

  • This version does the least damage but has the longest range and best frame data of any version of Strength Shot
  • Use to frame trap opponents, especially with your 4 frame Close C
  • Use this to combo into normals (2C or Close C) or even specials as it is +12 on hit!
  • Will not hit airborne opponents, no matter how close to the ground they are. You can still catch an opponent in pre-jump, making this an excellent meaty tool.
  • Meaty setup: After landing a 2C, enter and cancel out of any Strength Shot stance and then use Strength Shot B

  • The final hit of this move is super cancellable. Use Sonic Slaughter (236236A/C/AC) to combo as it hits on the ground (OTG).

  • A version moves forward a very short distance and will practically never crossup
  • C version moves forward around the same distance as a forward hop with high potential to crossup
  • AC version will move Whip directly in front of an opponent anywhere on the screen. It also has full invulnerability for the first 10 frames, which can serve as an excellent bait tool for reversals such as Krohnen’s 623A/C (but generally not something like a more traditional DP that would send the opponent airborne)
  • Holding the stick towards the opponent during the AC version will make Whip cross an opponent up. Requires sufficient air clearance and therefore will not crossup if EX Hook Shot is activated at the lowest point of a jump or from full screen.
  • Whip is in counterhit state until she lands after using Hook Shot.
  • If performed after a crossup, the A and C versions will not correct your orientation toward the opponent. The EX version, however, will make you face the opponent and you can even cross back over into the side you originally jumped from by holding your stick toward the opponent.

Whip rears Voodoo back and swings it in a downward strike. Hits overhead and grants a hard knockdown. This move also functions as a powerful projectile reflect.

  • Data in [] indicate values for the projectile.
  • If a projectile gets close to Whip during the reflect window, this move destroys the projectile and creates a 1-hit wind ball projectile that slowly travels slightly further than half of the screen before disappearing. This wind ball destroys ALL projectiles, even a super projectile (however, a super projectile will also destroy the wind ball)
  • BD version is faster and creates a 3-hit projectile which travels full screen at a slightly faster pace. Has the durability of a MAX super projectile; a super projectile will not destroy this one.
  • Can reflect many things that normal reflects cannot. Exhaustive list of reflectable attacks coming soon.
