Playstyle

Difficulty: Hard

Health: 1400

Playstyle: Rushdown, Mixup

Bladedancer is a rushdown and mixup character, able to use her specials to confuse her opponents and keep them guessing about what she will do next. She can either play at range with her Shurikens or get in the opponent’s face with her Sword Dash and Smoke Bomb. However, all of her specials can be easy to screw up in the wrong hands, meaning she has a high skill barrier.

Both of Bladedancer’s Throttles allow for different playstyles. Throttle 1 improves her mixup capabilities while Throttle 2 improves her rushdown.

Arcade Mode

Good Ending

Bladedancer fights Beautyface as the final boss.

“I cut down the monster with absolute ease before defeating Beautyface and removing the parasite with my katana. After an upgrade back in Kabletech Tower, I was fused with the lobotomised alien. My first mission with this new power was to capture the Powers Club: a mission I executed flawlessly. I am the ultimate warrior of Kabletech; nothing will ever stop me with this power.”

Bad Ending

Bladedancer fights Bladedancer as the final boss.

“I thought Kable had replaced me. He had already stated I was inefficient at the mission. After I destroyed the copy, I went to Kabletech Tower and confronted Kable. He said he knew nothing and, in a rage, I killed him. It was all a trick. Infinite had been playing me the whole time, and as soon as Kable died he appeared and took his place. I’m on the run now: on the run from a Kabletech that no longer deserves its name”
