    Quote: "A forest of thorns shall be your tomb."

    ???

    Debut tweet: https://twitter.com/sgmobile/status/1182470312425771008

    It appears performing a Battle Butt activates the SA (the condition either being a special move or the effect of causing armor break). Cerebella gets a stack of Thorns and the enemy gets Death Mark added with the usual Armor Break. Then there was something about Parasoul's proximity that triggered multiple stacks of Bleed. At first it seems getting close started the bleed, but dashing away brought two more stacks. Another stack of Thorns was granted to Cerebella after an enemy blockbuster.

    lol, that's a good point.

    While Star-Spangled is a keyframe from Excellebella, Criminal Mind appears to be an inbetween from that blockbuster.

    For anyone not familiar with the animation jargon, just know that keyframes are held poses that get the most attention. Inbetweens are the filler between the keyframes, quickly shown to bridge the gap. In short: inbetweens are not designed to share the same scrutiny as keyframes and are "allowed" to be off-model and have less detail.

    That's why the only thing I dislike about Djinn Frizz is her inbetween-featured card. I'd prefer Hidden Variable would pick keyframes for cards.

    It could be that the pose was something they felt best encapsulated the fighter, but having already used the keyframe for Spangled, they were left with only in-between frames to work with for that pose.

    what about doing a horizontal flip of the key frame? Is that too low effort?

    I am pretty sure that bleed will be applied every time an opponent performs a Dash (both Forward and Back). Makes sense in connection to the "Forest of thorns" quotation, since running through the briar patches would most likely result in being scratched and cut.

    Sharp observation! You're right, it is the dashing triggering the bleeds. Something that will be amusing against dash-crazy Filias, Fortunes, and Squiglys.

    I'd like to amend that I don't hate all inbetweens, just prefer some of the imperfect ones be last resort.

    Anyways, Criminal Mind is currently using the "missed" animation of the grab special while Star-Spangled is using the "connected" version. Beside the angry sneer, there isn't much difference so I thought to look for a frame (as an Indiegogo backer, I have the Digital Art Compendium).

    With the cast getting nearly 1500 frames per fighter, there is a lot to choose from. Here's four:

    1. attack/ specials/ bt_butt 05 (Vice Versa going full ram plays well into the supernatural aspect of "maleficent"
    2. attack/ specials/ horns 04 (very Gurren Lagann pose)
    3. attack/ normals/ j.WK 03 (only a criminal would use a concealed shoe knife)
    4. attack/ normals/ s.F + HP 03 (great "Haw haw!" expression)
    For Criminal Mind, I like #3 and #1 for their conniving or pure malice. #2 and #4 could be for future Cerebellas.
