OMF Katana

Katana is a HAR from One Must Fall: 2097.


One of the best robots in the game. There is exactly one reason to play as Katana: Rising Blade. This attack is an invincible fast combo starter that can be done in the air, making it a great choice. Katana comes with a decent suite of good moves as well: db+P is serviceable anti-air, b+P/P/f+P are good pokes, and players can force a slow-move guessing game with db+K and b+K. Plus, Katana has a good throw and Razor Spin is useful as a low-trajectory jump. There's really no reason for Katana to lose, unless the pilot gets careless and allows an opponent to avoid the second hit of the Rising Blade. Note that players MUST use a fast pilot, like Crystal or Milano, to combo after a Blade.
