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.

Ramlethal Valentine special attacks

Move name Input Description
Bajoneto 236S or 236HS Ramlethal launches one of her swords as a projectile. The S version hits higher on the opponent. The HS version hits in the mid-section of the opponent. On hit, it will carry the opponent towards the corner and if they end up in the corner the sword will explode. The sword will become lodged in the ground after use.  Ramlethal must either wait a short amount of time for the sword to return to her or go retrieve it.
Dauro0 623P Ramlethal lunges forward quickly. If this move is used as an anti-air it will launch, creating a combo opportunity.
Sildo Detruo 214K (Air OK) Ramlethal launches from the ground and hits the opponent with an overhead. This will travel over lows.
Sabrobato 214HS Ramlethal swings her swords over her head and crashes them down on the opponent. This move will do less damage if Ramlethal has only one sword. It has a long recovery animation and is not cancel-able from normals.
Erarlumo 214P Ramlethal does a combination of strikes forward. The follow up attacks are done by inputting the move up to two more times. Delaying the follow ups will increase their damage.
Agresa Ordono 214S in mid-air Ramlethal swipes her swords at her opponent in the air. The amount of attacks done is dependent on the amount of swords Ramlethal has.
