Rolento

Sfxt rolento face.jpg

Ideal Team Position: Point


Rolento excels in neutral, where he can pester the opponent with knives and long ranged pokes. He's notorious for being a monster in neutral, and being an even bigger monster once he knocks you down even once. His j.d+mk is a nasty mixup tool that Rolento gets great mileage off of, even if his opponent guesses right and blocks. His pressure is nothing short of relentless, as he can stay from far away and constantly Throw.png knives, or he can use his several mixup options to stay in or bait a reversal. He does have a bit of trouble if he gets knocked down himself thanks to his poor reversal and Low.png health, but this issue is hardly a problem when Rolento controls the entire match. Rolento is a strong neutral character based around long ranged pokes and tricky movement to keep the opponent out while letting himself get in, making him a good pick as a point character.


Strengths

  • Great normals for poking and picking up long ranged combos.
  • Lengthy combos with great corner carry allow him to easily burn time while pushing the opponent's disadvantage.
  • Pogo stick (j.d+mk) is a great mixup tool that can be used after almost all of his knockdowns.
  • Great movement options with pogo stick, Delta Escape, and Delta Attack allow him to approach many scenarios in various different ways and always remain ambiguous during pressure.
  • Pariot Circle (qcf+p) is a safe tag Cancel.png on block and leads to a combo on hit.
  • St.mp is a one button anti-air that will beat most jump-ins clean.


Weaknesses

  • Very Low.png solo damage output.
  • His only reversal, EX Patriot Circle, is incredibly slow at 18 frame startup.
  • Low health at 930.
