Upcomer’s Guilty Gear Strive character guides use numpad notation. Numpad notation is a universal form of notating fighting game inputs that is able to go past language barriers. It is based off numpads that can be found on a computer keyboard. Five is the joystick at neutral and the numbers branch out from there. For example, 236 would translate to “down, down-forward, forward” in numpad notation.

I-No special attacks

Move name Input Description
Antidepressant Scale 214P (Air OK) I-No shoots out a music note projectile out of her hat. The longer the projectile is on screen, the more hits it will do. Using 2 and 8 you can change the projectile’s trajectory mid-flight.
Chemical Love 214K (Air OK) I-No flips in the air and fires a projectile forward. It is a good poke that will hit high.
Stroke the Big Tree 236S or 236HS I-No lunges forward across the ground like Sol’s Night Raid Vortex. The S and HS version travel different distances. This will travel under high hitting attacks.
Sultry Performance 236K or 236S or 236HS in mid-air (Hold OK) I-No rides her guitar like a broom and does a lunging attack. The trajectory of the attack will change depending on the button used. Holding the button will charge the move in the air. If you press the button as the move is being blocked, I-No will leap forward instead of landing.

I-No Overdrives

Move name Input Description
Megalomania 632146HS I-No does a command grab super. If this move is whiffed she will still release the projectiles from the super animation.
Ultimate Fortissimo 632146S (Air OK) I-No leaps forward, knocking her opponent in the air and then uses a close range projectile. If done in the air the projectile comes out immediately.
