Cirno may claim to be the strongest, but she's only half-right. Her attacks aren't that very strong by themselves, but her true strength lies in her multi-hit attacks and swift combos. Her small size and fast movement speed make her even tougher to deal with, at the expense of her stamina.

Cirno RP-Idle

Cirno is a standard three-button character that uses the Button-xyz buttons for the entire portion of her moveset and the Button-abc buttons as convenient shortcuts for other aspects of the character; (A)Button-a is used as a shortcut in conjunction with Button-F or Button-B to activate the dash commands respectively assigned to Button-F Button-F and Button-B Button-B, both (B)Button-b and (C)Button-c act as shortcuts for the throw that's regularly activated using (Y)Button-y+(Z)Button-z, and (C)Button-c by itself is used as a shortcut for the Button-xyz3 activation of the character's Level 3 Hypers. One of Cirno's mutually exclusive level 3 Hypers has to be chosen at the beginning of every match; Freeze Sign "Perfect Freeze" doesn't inflict a great deal of damage, but its fullscreen effect and ability to freeze the opponent in place long enough for Cirno to extend her combos gives it significant utility, while Ice Clump "Great Crusher" provides Cirno with a devastating melee-based combo finisher that hits high and has an incredibly large hitbox.

Cirno is a quick, though not particularly strong, character, who excels at rushing down the opponent, and is thus best used offensively. Like RicePigeon's Kanako, Cirno also possesses the ability to glide in midair by holding UB, Button-U, or UF after a jump. Unique to Cirno is her ability to walk while crouching; although slower than her normal walk, it allows her to remain mobile while drastically reducing her hitbox size. Cirno can even make use of DF+(Y)Button-y to provide her with a safe wall against projectiles to make approaching them easier. Though each of her individual attacks may be weak compared to most, she makes up for this in her quick mobility, small size, and combos. Some of Cirno's attacks, namely Frozen Technique and Icicle Fairy Sculpture, can also put the opponent into a freeze state on hit, allowing her to easily follow up with an attack or another combo.

Cirno is not without her faults, however. While her melee attacks are fast, they are usually lacking in range, forcing Cirno to put herself in harm's way. Her projectile attacks, while they compensate for this somewhat, tend to have slower startup times and leave Cirno at a disadvantage if mistimed. Cirno also sports below average health, making her quicker to KO and makes up for her small size. Speaking of Cirno's size, her standing animation hitbox would suggest that she would be able to avoid Low attacks during this state, when in fact, her hitbox covers the entire area under her feet.

Cirno has a custom A.I. that's only a minor step up over M.U.G.E.N's default A.I., as it mostly dashes around the stage aimlessly and either throws out a random Normal or initiates a grab when it's in close proximity to the opponent; because of this, any successful combos achieved through Cirno's Normals is almost always down to the A.I. getting lucky in chaining the right attacks together, rather than the A.I. making a dedicated effort to pull off actual combo strings. The A.I. never makes Cirno go airborne or use any of her Specials, nor does it ever use any Hyper outside of Freeze Sign "Perfect Freeze" when the conditions for its activation are met, though even then, the A.I. will throw out the Hyper at random without any regards to using it effectively.







Hovering the mouse cursor over the Command Input icons will display text that refers to the inputs set in M.U.G.E.N's Key Config.

Icons encased in square brackets [ Button-D ] require the respective button(s) to be held down. Hovering the mouse cursor over the icon displays the hold duration if applicable.

Victory quotes


I dunno what anime fans or prom nights are, but I made ya cry didn't I?
Make fun of me and your tongue will get scalded!
There is nothing I can't freeze!
Even if some things can't be frozen, I've gotta keep my pride!
I'm gonna have to look for some stronger opponents!
So weak! That was like doing warm-ups before practice!

  • The damage done by each hit of Cirno's attacks (before any kind of proration or damage dampening is applied) are in multiples of the number 9, a reference to a meme involving Cirno's description in Phantasmagoria of Flower View's game manual.
  • Cirno's first generic victory quote is a reference to the controversy surrounding the video game Mighty No. 9 and its pre-release negative reception.
  • Both of Cirno's victory quotes against Lie Meiling reference Pokémon type-matchups, specifically the Dark-type's weakness to Fairy-type attacks and the Dragon-type's weakness to both Ice-type and Fairy-type attacks.
  • Cirno's first victory quote against Kanako Yasaka is a reference to the latter's spellcard God Sign "Omiwatari God Cross".
  • Cirno's second victory quote against Sanae Kochiya is a reference to the Mortal Kombat character Sub-Zero, specifically his Ice Clone special move, which Icicle Fairy Sculpture bears a very similar, if not identical, execution to.
  • When Cirno is controlled by the A.I. and the A.I. difficulty is set to 1 or 2, Ice Sign "Icicle Fall" will instead be replaced by Ice Sign "Icicle Fall ~ Easy". The attack is almost identical, except for a huge obvious blind spot between Cirno and the icicle projectiles. This is a nod to the infamous blind spot present in the spellcard of the same name in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil's Easy difficulty setting.
  • Cirno's 10th palette is a direct nod to Cirno's appearance in Hidden Star in Four Seasons, where Cirno becomes tanned as a side effect of temporarily acquiring the power of the summer season during the game's events.
  • Cirno's voice clips are primarily Peashy's from Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory and MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies. Cirno originally used Flonne's English voice clips from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, but slowed down by about 27%, though one of the clips is still used for Guard Cancel Counter; they may have been taken from NeoKamek's Reiko Hikari, as they sounded identical.
    • Both Peashy and Flonne are voiced by the same voice actress, Sandy Fox.
