Humorous videos expose BlazBlue: Central Fiction Noel Vermillion’s weaknesses

By on April 8, 2017 at 12:00 pm

Noel Vermillion has been a bit of an underdog in the BlazBlue series. Though there were some versions where she was comparatively stronger, the dominant characters in Central Fiction generally push her lower in the hierarchy.

Alizonius, who recently published a Noel combo video, has been a Tweeting a mini series of “match up” videos. Sometimes set to the X-Files theme, they humorously — but accurately — expose the weaknesses of the character.

Looks like Hakumen’s counter Astral just happens to work on Noel’s command grab.

What kind of effective tools does Noel have against Celica? Any? Anyone? Is character switch a legitimate advice then?

This Tweeted video probably hits the hardest. Or it doesn’t. It just whiffs.

To be fair, it’s possible to cancel into the Distortion Drive earlier to make this chain better, but that air Noel super is known to whiff like that sometimes.

To be fair, Alizonius also puts out videos that showcase Noel’s strength, like a Fatal counter combo and a way to side-switch in a Noel combo.

Do you struggle but remain loyal to your favorite characters, or do you switch to someone else when you see them nerfed? Let us know in the comments.
