Squigly is all about finding openings. Rather than relying on her base stats, players will have to use her Character Ability and Signature Abilities to take advantage of the opponent's openings and be precise with their timing in order to excel as Squigly.

Squigly has high base Health, making her one of the hardest characters to finish off. However, she also has a relatively low Attack further reinforcing her finding-openings playstyle.

Her abilities rely on effects that are very potent if activated in the right moments. Lastly, the majority of these moments of opportunity will be cued by the state of certain HUD elements, so players will have to remain attentive to details they might otherwise take for granted (e.g. Combo Count, Red Life, meter state, modifier expiration, etc.).

Character Background

Squigly is the last "surviving" member of the Contiellos, a famous line of opera singers and long-time clients of the Medici family. Fourteen years ago, tragedy struck the Contiellos when the Medici Mafia murdered Squigly's family due to possessing the Skull Heart. It was during this incident that Squigly's mother made the wish to bring back all the Contiellos back to life, becoming the Skullgirl. Squigly would have been one of her minions if her father did not have Leviathan bond with Squigly as his new host. With Leviathan, Squigly reluctantly agreed to help fight her parents alongside Big Band, Annie, Panzerfaust and Deep Violet. Upon succeeding, she and Leviathan fell "dead" once more due to the Skullgirl being gone.

With Marie as the new Skullgirl, Squigly is awakened with stronger powers, which Leviathan admitted was a sign of his imperfect ability to block the Skull Heart's influence. Squigly assured her Parasite that he was doing an admirable job by simply allowing her to live after death, but then discovered - much to her horror - that someone had sewn her mouth shut during her "sleep". Realizing that the Medicis were to blame, Squigly and Leviathan set off to find Lorenzo and exact vengeance for the insult.

Combo

Notes:

  • G5 means a chain of 5 normal ground attacks. (Usually by tapping 5 times on the screen)
    • At the right moment the third hit of Squigly's G5 can hit and opponent who has been knocked down and will lift them up to be attacked more (these more optional and timing sensitive moves will be marked with a *).
  • Up or Launcher means the normal move that sends your opponent in the air (usually by swiping up)
  • A5 means a chain of 5 normal air attacks. (usually by tapping 1 times after having launched your opponent)
  • Dash means a dash attack (swipe right once)
  • Trip means a trip attack (swipe down once)
  • Moves with a [D] next to them require the use of Dragon Charges to continue the combo
  • In Combos that start with or contain A5 > Silver Chord, the Silver Chord will probably miss Valentine because her butt is too smol

    • Timing sensitive
    • My uses of this combo have shown that it has enough hits to use Battle Opera recharge it and then use it again
    • An update may have rendered this combo ineffective
