The UC System

Make sure you understand this system first!

There are 3 stages, each with a set of moves. Simply put, Angel must use one from each to complete a sequence of attacks.

Unchain: 1.Start > 2.Circle > 3.Finish

When you get comfortable then you can examine how stage 2 contains loops (hence the name “circle”)…

Stage 1: Unchain Start

  • df+ LK “Low
  • df HK “Heel
  • bk fwd K “Tornado
  • QCB P “Blow” -EX
  • HCFK  “Step” -EX


Stage 2: Unchain Circle

  • up- P “Upper
  • fwd K  “Sobat
  •  dwn P “Under Blow
  • up-K “High
  • fwd P  “Hammer Blow


(End) Special Unchain Circle

These will interrupt the sequence, just really to dodge, and then you can finish!

  • LP+LK “Feint
  • fwd LP+LK “Feint” (Forward)
  • bkLP+LK “Feint” (Backward)


Stage 3: Finish

  • fwdx2 LP • Lariat
  • fwdx2 HP • Straight
  • fwdx2 K • Rolling
  • qcfLP  • Neck Cutter
  • qcfHP • Grapple Kick.


Here is a move flowchart to help you navigate your options!

hcfx2 KK “Ascension Time” Climax

Best Combos


Upkick Loops by Olaf

Extended with dashes



Crossup midscreen


Angel’s mixup as one (after 66c, you can do cmd dash and it retains you reversed commands, if you do back dash towards corner, Angel backdash over opponent’s corpse):

Her cmd dash can be canceled into 2p into another dash, if done right, it’s unmashable and unjumpable:

Angel corner 50/50 with chains after reset:

Meterless unblockable setup:

Angel feint dodges moves:

Double teleport mixup:

j.C vacuums a lot, which you can do fuzzy backdash j.2d to catch off guard people on corner. also unmashable:

Angel benefits most when she’s either 2nd slot or Anchor:

Antiair max mode allows you do teleport mixup:

Guard Crush 1000  (can be interrupted by reversals or counters)
