Tips and Tricks

Role & Strategy

  • Firefly is a defensive fighter with a Signature Ability that grants her health and meter while blocking when her health is below 50%, granting her more survivability in the fight. Firefly's Signature Ability relies completely on the AI behavior to block for increased survivability. Hence, players facing Firefly will have to be familiar with how the AI behaves in order to minimize mindless attacks that are only going to be blocked.
  • Characters with THROW-based special moves that bypasses blocking such as Cerebella and Beowulf can be useful to use to prevent Firefly from blocking too much.
  • Marquee Ability: As Firefly has no other defensive abilities, TAINTED BLOOD is the recommended Marquee Ability to reflect back some damage taken, which she can easily recover back via her Signature Ability.
  • Stat Investment: Like any other defensive variant, investment in HP and Defense are very important to increase her longevity in a fight. Furthermore, investment in Meter Gain are also recommended to quickly charge blockbuster to punish opponents with an unblockable Tier 3 blockbuster.


  • This variant's name is a reference to Firefly, an American space Western drama television series with its caption being a lyric to the show's theme song The Ballad of Serenity.
