Unstoppable Special Attack

TECHNIQUES

Move Canceling

Luc can avoid pausing between normal attacks, Special Attacks, landing from jumps, Dashes, etc. by canceling into other moves.
This technique is especially advantageous when used in conjunction with the temporary invincibility gained by Dashing as Luc can attack without taking damage.
Attacks can be performed up to three times on the ground and three times in the air and movement ability is reset when Luc returns to a neutral state or when dashing.

Using Dash to Nullify Attacks

Luc becomes invincible for several frames whiles Dashing and Luc’s attacks can be canceled by Dashing. This allows Luc can find opportunities to attack without being damaged by watching monsters for openings and using Dash.
When Luc is hit in the invincible state, a blue effect occurs instead of a hit effect.

Attack Collision

When Luc and an enemy attack at the same time and the attacks collide, the both attacks are rendered ineffective.
This can be used to your advantage by using area effect Special Attacks to nullify attacks coming from behind.
A blue effect occurs instead of a hit effect when an Attack Collision occurs.

Rigid Body State

Sometimes a blue effect will occur when attacking an enemy, even when there has been no collision of attacks.
This is due to the enemy’s ‘rigid body’ state. When this happens, the enemy is taking damage, but they are not presenting an opening for attack.
The number of times a monster can enter a rigid body state depends on the type of monster and it can be deactivated for a set amount of time.
(They take damage and are immobilized.)
Fighting with a grasp of how many times you have damaged a monster can be an effective strategy.
