Normals

Standing

  • st. A is a cancel-able slap that covers a distance in front of her face. Good for stopping incoming hops. Whiffs on crouching opponents except for Goro, Maxima and Chang. Whiffs up-close on standing characters such as Chin, Hinako, & Choi. Can be chained into cr. A, st. B, and cr. B.
  • st. B is a 2-hit special and super cancel-able side kick. Both hits are cancel-able. Moves Shermie forward a bit.
  • st. C is a double palm attack that moves Shermie forward. Not cancel-able.
  • st. D is roundhouse kick can be used to pre-emptively stop incoming hops but it is not cancel-able. It can also whiff on many characters while crouching.

Close

  • cl. C is special and super cancel-able, and can be cancel-ed into her command normals (f+A, f+B).


Crouching

  • cr. A is a crouching slap that can be chained into st.A, st.B, cr. B and her command normals
  • cr. B: Shermie lays on the ground on her side to kick the opponent near their ankles. She can duck & evade many mid-air projectiles except very low fireball's such as Bao's light punch Psycho Ball (qcb+A) and ground skimming fireballs such as Iori's or Kusanagi's qcf+A. This kick also moves Shermie forward slightly
  • cr. C: This cancel-able uppercut looks like Shermie is doing a volleyball bump (or pass). She moves backward slightly. Can be used as a grounded anti-air, and has a decent amount of attack range in front of her.
  • cr. D is a sweep that is not cancel-able. Can evade mid-air projectiles but not as reliably as cr. B.

Jumping

  • jumping B/C/D can all cross-up the opponent
  • j. C can be used as a jump-in attack to start combos
  • Neutral jump D is a horizontal drop kick that is good for stopping incoming jumps or super jumps
  • j. D has good horizontal range and can be used as a jump-in attack

Blowback

  • Stand CD: Shermie aims a kick at the opponent's head. Moves Shermie forward a bit and is whiff cancel-able
  • j.CD can be use similar to her neutral jump D as an air-to-air. Can be low profiled by the opponent's crouching light kick or sweep if improperly timed.

  • the counter has a fairly sizable amount of active frames in which the counter can grab an opponent


Evasive Move - (ABC)

  • Shermie pushes the hair back behind her ear and slickly dodges the next move
  • similar to the AB dodge move in 98UMFE's EXTRA mode that replaced the roll
  • it will dodge mid and low attacks as well as jump-ins if timed well
  • Shermie can be thrown out of Evasive Move
  • Shermie can only end Evasive Move quickly by using Evasive Attack, otherwise the entire move must finish.
  • really great to bait an opponent up close, allowing you to follow up with a command throw or combo
  • slight chance you can go into BC mode due to closeness of input, but that can be mitigated by press A slightly before the other buttons
Evasive Attack - during Evasive move, A/B/C/D
  • Shermie comes out the Evasive Move with a side kick
  • all buttons produce the same side kick
  • if the kick lands you can follow up with a full combo
  • good to throw the opponent off guard by canceling the Evasive Move at range with the kick, which is an effective footsie tool

  • Evasive Attack is super cancel-able on hit

Combos

  • Remember to stick to one cr.A if you wanna add a front jump-in.
  • You can't do 2 cr.A against crouching Bao, stick to one.
  • st.B's 2nd hit will whiff on some crouchers, make sure to cancel it on the first hit against crouching(K’, Joe, Benimaru, Iori, Mature, Vice, Leona, Athena, Kensou, Mai, Yuri, Chris, Kula, Foxy, Jhun, Hinako, Angel).
If you're canceling into hcf+P or hcbx2+P/AC you can buffer it to whiff cancel st.B's 2nd hit if it would whiff. That way it'll connect regardless of hitting or whiffing.

0 Stock

Anywhere

 ★ cr.Ax1~2, st.B(2), hcf+P (> qcf+K)

Main meterless bnb. Good hitconfirm but cr.A is fairly slow and short so omitting one or even both is preferred at some spacings. If you won't send the opponent in the corner, omit qcf+K follow-up for less damage but much better oki. Without qcf+K, 22~25%.
  • cr.A, st.B(2), qcb+C > qcf+K
Less range and worse oki but qcb+C is safer on block, though it's still best to stop at st.B on block. qcb+P also carries the opponent farther and taking the extra damage from qcf+K is fine since the loss of oki is minimal. 25%.

 ★ cr.C, f+B, hcf+P (> qcf+K)

Best kept for punishes or after a j.C cross-up. A front jump-in needs to be deep for hcf+P to land. cr.C is faster and does more damage than cl.C. If you won't send the opponent in the corner, omit qcf+K follow-up for less damage but much better oki. Without qcf+K, 28%.
  • cr.B, hcf+P/qcb+C > qcf+K
Mainly a low profile conversion. qcb+P is preferred for safety and hcf+P for range. With hcf+P and without qcf+K, 18%.


1 Stock

Anywhere

 ★ cr.Ax1~2, st.B(2), hcbx2+P

Main 1 bar conversion. Good hitconfirm but cr.A is fairly slow and short so omitting one or even both is preferred at some spacings. 32~35%.
  • cr.A, st.B(2), hcfx2+P
Less range and worse oki than the previous one, use that instead. 32%.

 ★ cr.C, f+B, hcbx2+P

1 bar conversion best kept for punishes or after a jump-in. You can omit cr.C for a much slower overhead conversion. With cr.C, 37%.


2 Stocks

Anywhere

  • cr.C, f+B, BC run, cr.C, f+B, hcbx2+P
Not much added damage, not worth the extra bar unless you want to kill. 43%.
  • cr.C, f+B, BC run, st.B(2), hcbx2+P
A bit easier than the previous route, still not worth the extra bar. You can use hcfx2+P but it does the same damage for worse oki. 40%.


3 Stocks

Anywhere

 ★ cr.A, st.B(2), hcfx2+AC

Main 3 bar conversion. Decent hitconfirm but cr.A is fairly slow and short so omitting it is preferred at some spacings. 48%.
  • cr.Ax1~2, st.B(2), hcbx2+AC
More range and will ToD if the opponent doesn't press anything but aside from new players, it'll just be a waste of meter.If the opponent mashes, 32~35%.
  • cr.C, f+B, hcbx2+AC
Same as above, ToD if the opponent doesn't know, waste of meter otherwise, 37%.
  • cr.C, f+B, BC run, cr.C, f+B, hcbx2+AC
Same as above, ToD if the opponent doesn't know, waste of meter otherwise, 37%.

 ★ cr.C, f+B, BC run, st.B(2), hcfx2+AC

Easier route with better damage, default to this if you want to spend the meter. 56%.
