Chromatic Orb knocks down but doesn't damage

Title: Chromatic Orb knocks down but doesn’t damage

Summary: If Midori’s Flying Kick (gB) catches the tail end of Valerie’s Chromatic Orb (gS) he is hit and knocked down but takes no damage.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Stand Midori and Val at opposite edges of the screen
  2. Activate Val’s Chromatic Orb
  3. Use Midori’s Flying Kick right after Val yells “CHRO” (of “CHRO-MAT-IC-ORB”)
  4. If timed right, Midori will catch the end of the orb.

Expected Results: Midori is knocked back and damaged when hit by the orb.

Actual Results: Midori is knocked back when hit by the orb, but is not damaged.

Notes: I have confirmed this only on Midori. It may also work with other characters if they attack at the end of Chromatic Orb.

That’s because Chromatic Orb does damage only on the final hit. You can fall out of the move and not take damage.


It’s intentional that the move only does damage on the final hit.
