Streak is the game's resident zoning specialist, with majority of her special moves being best used while a fair distance away from her opponent, with her Style Action being her primary tool for zoning. Needless to say, whenever she's able to maintain her preferred distance, she is capable of utterly obliterating her foes with high-damage combos. Regardless, Streak is best played defensively, as she relies a lot on punishing any false move the opponent makes through mind games.

In exchange, however, Streak is pretty much helpless should she be faced with an opponent who is able to close that distance with ease due to a severe lack of close-quarters options. It doesn't help that she herself doesn't have any solid defensive options either, apart from her light Shadow Fang and her Phantom Void specials, the latter of which requires some mind gaming for it to be effective. In addition, her mobility isn't the most impressive and her severe lack of aerial options can cripple her against opponents that do have said options, making her one of the least versatile characters in the game.
