- Damage: 30

st. C - A forward to downward swipe, fast and great range. Great as a long range poke and after blockstrings to keep you in close range. Moves Leona forward

- Hit Detection: High

- Damage: 80

st. D - A high-angled spin kick to the head, very slow start up and recovery. Not recommended as a general anti-air

- Hit Detection: High

- Damage: 70

Crouch Normals 10.png

cr. A - A crouching straight-forward chop, good speed and recovery. A staple in hitconfirming combos

cr. B - A low kick aimed at the feet, great range and speed. Leona's best ground poke/combo starter

j. C - A two-handed cross slash, massive hitbox. Leona's best jump-in for ambiguous mixups

Baltic Launcher.png

  • Hit Detection: High
  • Damage: 65; EX Damage: 120

Grand Saber.png

  • Hit Detection: High
  • Damage: 70; EX Damage: 90 x 2

X Calibur.png
