Marisa’s Combat Skills & Tips
Marisa’s fighting style largely depends on her offense, where she doesn’t give a chance for the opponent to attack or take any leads. This is evident from her moves set. Let’s take a look at some aspects of using her.
Having a large muscular body, she inhibits immense strength, which is visible in her attacks. Her normal punches and kicks are enough to drain the enemy’s health bar. Moreover, they are quick, so they don’t give the opponent a chance to counter-attack as well.
Effective Counter Attacks
A major advantage of taking this character is her ability to block or break the enemy’s attacks and instantly reply with a counter-attack. This leaves them surprised with no option to defend themselves. A few ways this can be done are:
Allows Marisa to break through the opponent’s attack and respond with a stronger one.
Use Drive Reversal: Love Tap when on defense or after a successful Drive Parry to counterblow.
Be cautious, as these moves use the Drive Gauge, and overuse can put you at a disadvantage when it empties.
A defensive skill that blocks incoming hits.
Offers three counter-attacks while blocking, but timing is crucial to execute them effectively.
Forms a powerful combo in many fights.
A powerful punch that allows Marisa to break through the opponent’s punch and strike them in the face.
Effective against normal moves but not as effective against special moves.
Having a buffy body, Marisa becomes an easy target for the attacks. Hence, you must play smartly to overcome this drawback and keep the pressure on the other side. A good approach is to switch excessively between standing and crouching stance to avoid getting hit as much as you can.
