This special edit of Suika, known as Retro Suika, is essentially tons of retro games combined with Suika, and she contains many references to retro games. She has a diverse moveset and several Specials which have different versions, activated by pressing a button after inputting the command, and she is perhaps one of RoySquadRocks' most extensive characters. Not unlike his other characters, Retro Suika has three different A.I. options.

Retro Suika is a six-button character, using the (X)Button-x, (Y)Button-y and (Z)Button-z buttons for punches and the (A)Button-a, (B)Button-b and (C)Button-c button for kicks, with (A)Button-a and (X)Button-x corresponding to light Normals, (B)Button-b and (Y)Button-y to medium Normals and (C)Button-c and (Z)Button-z to heavy Normals, and her standing heavy Normals are unique in that they give Retro Suika a bit of forward momentum and her aerial (Z)Button-z move is unique in that it makes Retro Suika crash straight into the ground. Her gameplay style is typical of RoySquadRocks' characters, having an above average amount of Specials and Hypers, with many of them being projectile attacks, which adds to her versatility and unpredicatability; in fact, Retro Suika's moveset is among the most extensive of RoySquadRocks' characters, and she even has an unique mechanic in which some of her Specials allow for different moves to be selected by pressing one of the buttons shown onscreen after inputting the command, a mechanic which is only shared with RoySquadRocks' Shovel Knight. She has several system moves, like Parrying, a Dodge, a Recovery Roll, a Super Jump and a Launcher which can be followed up into said Super Jump. She also has a throw, activated by pressing Button-F (Y)Button-y+(Z)Button-z while near the opponent.

Retro Suika's combo system is similar to Chain Comboing, as she can chain light Normals into medium Normals into heavy Normals as usual, but it is actually more lenient in terms of comboing Normals, as she can make combos by chaining her light punch into her light kick into her medium punch into her medium kick into her heavy punch, though not the other way around (light kick into light punch), but she can chain certain other kicks into certain punches. However, outside of her Normals, her comboing is fairly limited, as she can't cancel her Normals into most of her Specials, with the exceptions being MOVE OVER, SONIC!! and the Space Invader Call moves, or cancel any of her Specials into Hypers, but she can cancel her Normals into most of her Hypers. She has a Launcher (her crouching (Z)Button-z move) which can be followed up into a Super Jump, though her air comboing is limited as it's not possible to perform combos that consist of both punches and kicks while airborne. To compensate for her comboability, her damage output is fairly low, which is noticeable in the majority of her attacks, especially her throw and her Hypers, and she also has a damage dampener which reduces damage based on the amount of hits in a combo, and if a move is chained into a Hyper, the Hyper's damage is reduced by a fair amount to the point where at least a few hits must be chained before a Hyper, because otherwise the chained moves and the Hyper combined will deal even less damage than a standalone Hyper.

For her Specials that allow for a move to be selected after inputting the command, (A)Button-a corresponds to light versions, (B)Button-b corresponds to medium versions, (C)Button-c or (X)Button-x (depending on the move) corresponds to heavy versions and (Y)Button-y (only for two of these Specials) corresponds to EX versions that cost 500 Power but are unique compared to their other variants. Each of the selectable moves is somewhat different, because their amount of projectiles, angle, range or velocity can vary. Because the move won't be activated until after the button is pressed after inputting the command, there's a slight delay which can leave Retro Suika open to attacks, and although the selector may lead to mindgames, the attack will be cancelled if the player waits too long to press a button. The rest of her Specials are mostly melee attacks, with SuWHACKo being a dash attack and Gtg Fast and MOVE OVER, SONIC!! being insprired from Sonic the Hedgehog, with the latter being able to be charged, and when fully charged, it hits once instead of multiple times and deals the most damage out of any of Retro Suika's non-Hyper moves. Space Invader Call 1 and Space Invader Call 2 have the Space Invader which follows Retro Suika around fire projectiles similar to Pew Pew's (A)Button-a move, and Space Invader Call 3 involves the Space Invader attacking in a boomerang-like fashion, which can drag the opponent toward Retro Suika, making it useful for following up with attacks. All of her level 1 Hypers deal below average damage for a level 1 Hyper, and the shorter-ranged Hypers deal more damage, with Tempest Gravitar Lander having a short range, Push Start to Rich having a medium range and Root Beerzerk having a long range. Momijistein 3D behaves differently from Retro Suika's other Hypers as it is a Counter, and when used, there is a brief moment during which a counterattack will be inititated if the opponent attacks Retro Suika, though it can only counter attacks attributed as melee attacks and not projectiles and throws, and if the opponent doesn't attack Retro Suika during this time, nothing will happen. Momijistein 3D deals the lowest amount of damage out of all of Retro Suika's Hypers. Power Blast also deals a mediocre amount of damage for a level 2 Hyper, but its range extends to the entire ground area, making it useful against grounded opponents but not airborne opponents. Sakuya Wannabe deals no damage but freezes the opponent in place for a limited time if it hits, allowing for Retro Suika to attack and set up combos. Nostalgic Ibuki Satsu is Retro Suika's only level 3 Hyper and is obviously based on the Shun Goku Satsu, though it can be blocked in sprite of being a throw. While it deals a high amount of damage (more than 2/3rth of an average opponent's Life), it makes Retro Suika trip if it's blocked or if it whiffs, leaving her open to attacks.

RoySquadRocks' characters are known for having three different .def files, each with a different A.I. difficulty, and Retro Suika is no exception. The .def file with no suffix corresponds to the hardest A.I., and it attacks and tries to get near the opponent often, occasionally performing decent combos, and it also often makes use of her Specials and Hypers and frequenly cancels a Normal into a Hyper, though it may leave Retro Suika open to attacks at times, like when it randomly moves or jumps around, whiffs attacks or performs a Special which allows for a move to be selected but doesn't select the move. The .def file with the Moderate suffix corresponds to an A.I. which is inbetween the hardest and easiest in terms of difficulty, but it behaves very erratically, as it uses Specials and Hypers more often than Normals, doesn't combo a lot and has the unusual habit of performing Dodge Twirls very often. The .def file with the Easy suffix corresponds to, as its name says, the easiest A.I., which tries to get close to the opponent but doesn't attack often and rarely uses Hypers.

Victory quotes


I am drunk. You don't have an excuse.
Go watch Pixels.
Featuring Flandre from the Scarlet Devil May Cry series!
I'd buy that for a dollar.
Where's my 7up?!
Winners don't use drugs, unless you have an energized sake.
You must defeat Kasen Ibaraki to stand a chance.
Dood you need 2 play vidya gams moar.


You're not even drunk enough to be my doppelganger.
vs. Suika Ibuki
That was a fun mirror match! Thank you for comparing yourself to me!
vs. Suika Ibuki
Me?! A faker?! I think you're the fake oni around here!
vs. Suika Ibuki
The sake is a lie!
vs. Suika Ibuki
You look similar to me. There is no point having to fight against a character who is pretty much a carbon copy, right?
