Personality

Elphelt is a sweet-natured girl who’s a huge animal and nature lover and can’t bring herself to overlook those she sees as being alone. When she takes action, she always adopts a positive outlook where she feels that no problem is impossible to fix. Ever obsessed with refining her feminine charms, she is always striving to better achieve her personal ideals of womanhood, although she has a tendency to not make much forward progress. Always interested in discussing love and romance, she tends to dream big, potentially in excess.

Battle Style

Elphelt fights with two guns. One is a rifle-type suitable for precise long-range shooting, and the other is a shotgun-type that specializes in close-range attacks. It is recommended you switch up your gun type based on the situation.

Rifle-Type

By entering a specific command, players can switch to the rifle. To fire, you must take stance, use the directional pad to aim, and press the attack button. Elphelt is unable to move during a stance, but can aim far ahead of herself.

Shotgun-Type

By entering a specific command, players can switch to the shotgun. By taking this stance, players can make all sorts of movements for close-range attacks. These close-range attacks have tremendous power, and she also has a sharp blow technique and quick forward roll.

Reload Action

After firing her weapon, Elphelt will proceed to put her weapon away, but by entering a specific command immediately after shooting the rile or shotgun, players can reload, allowing for immediate fire after the previous shot.

“Stance” and “Damage”

Shooting immediately after drawing out the rifle or the shotgun will do little damage, as well as only push the opponent back a little. But by giving it a little more time, Elphelt’s stance and aiming sights change, enabling players to at that point deal out massive amounts of damage and even down the enemy character.

Comment from Unification Battle Director Pachi

“Elphelt’s strengths as a fighter lie in her two guns. The fact that you can manually aim her guns and reload them make her a fun and unique character since you can finely control how she shoots. In some respects, it practically feels like you’re playing an actual FPS with her! That being said, she has moves that are also easy to pull off, making it possible to fight as her in a more traditional manner. While her cute looks and funny movements make her stand out plenty as it is, it’s her combat potential that make her a really standout character in the end worth keeping an eye on moving forward.”
