Playstyle: Rushdown, Pressure
Angel is a rushdown character, relying on extremely fast but low damage attacks to defeat her enemies. These fast attacks mean she has very good pressure, with most of her attacks positive on block (meaning she can act before the blocking opponent can). However, her lack of damage means she relies on long and complex combos in order to get damage in, and she lacks defensive or zoning capabilities.
Her Throttles both expand on her combo game in different ways. Throttle 1 allows for more damage in combos if you can keep up with Angel’s blows, and Throttle 2 allows for cross-up combos and a more movement-based playstyle.
Throttle 1. Angel’s attacks increase in speed during combos. The longer the combo, the faster the attacks get.
Throttle 2. Angel’s dashes damage the opponent.
“Alright, you asked for it!”
“This’ll be over quickly.”
“Think you can keep up with me?”
“Let’s see if you’ve learned something.” (Vs. Natalie)
“...Damn it, where are fire puns when I need them?” (Vs. Rugal)
“I know what you did...and I’m here to punch you for it.” (Vs. Thundereye)
“Those eyes...it’s like your Natalie’s...nah, probably nothing.” (Vs. Vendeta)
“Where’s Carl when you need him?” (Vs. Bladedancer)
“This is just one of your illusions, right, Natalie?...Natalie?” (Vs. Angel, first)
“In Infinite’s voice Hehehe...Keep telling yourself that, Angel Skyheart.” (Vs. Angel, second)
“Ok, I’m actually kinda fangirling right now.” (Vs. Blaze)
“You deserve what’s coming for you.” (Vs. Kable)
“Please tell me you weren't trying.”
“I guess having the nerve to fight me counts for something.”
“That’s why they call me the girl who punches like lightning.”
“You’re good, Nat, but you’re far from perfect...in terms of fighting, at least.” (Vs. Natalie)
“Fire punches won’t matter if you can’t hit me.” (Vs. Rugal)
“...Seriously, though, can I get your autograph?” (Vs. Blaze)
“I’ve been waiting a month for a chance to do that.” (Vs. Kable)
“You getting up? No? Then I’ll be going then. And if you try to stab me in the back, I’ll react before you get anywhere near me”
“That’s the thing with lightning; the damage is huge, yet you can’t fight back. As the girl who punches like lightning, I’m ready to continue that tradition.” (Perfect win)
“Thanks for the fight, Natalie. Combat really helps me to zone out, get away from everything weighing me down. Especially when I’m with you.” (Vs. Natalie)
“I’m sorry I had to do that Rugal...nah, who am I kidding? I enjoyed that way to much.” (Vs. Rugal)
“You know, I kinda liked being the Girl that Punches Like Lightning...until I met you.” (Vs. Thundereye)
“You don’t even have powers and you still kept up?! Do you want to teach Natalie a few pointers?” (Vs. Ringmaster)
“Damn, psychokinesis is not fun. Then again, my girlfriend can manipulate minds, so I guess that’s not much better.” (Vs. Vendeta)
“I just beat up Blaze...I seriously just beat up Blaze...I can’t tell whether to be happy or apologise constantly...” (Vs. Blaze)
“You stay away from Natalie. If you hurt her, I will walk into that tower and destroy your empire myself, understand? Don’t touch her again.” (Vs. Kable)
“Now you’re asking for it!” (Escaping a combo)
“I’ll give it everything I’ve got!” (Activating Overclock)
“No...not now…” (Defeated)
“Guess the competition can’t keep up.” (Going up a rank in online)
“Maybe I’m slower than I think?” (Going down a rank in online)
Angel fights Angel as the final boss.
“While the others finished with Beautyface, me and Natalie chased after who we assumed was Thundereye. Turns out, it was Infinite: the megalomaniac who defeated Sonic almost 8 months ago. He blasted Natalie away with a laser beam...and then I just lost it. Went completely ham on him. Natalie’s ok, incidentally, and my efforts led to Infinite being more weakened than he already was. But he’ll come back. And when he does? I’ll be ready to face him. We all will be.”
Angel fights Dean as the final boss.
“While the others finished with Beautyface, I fought Dean as he tried to escape. However, it was a ploy. The Thunder Gang jumped me and pulled them off to their headquarters. Now I’m trapped in the subway train like Rugal was. I have two options: either I fight my way out or wait for the others to come. Honestly? I’m liking the sound of the former a whole lot more…”
