Advanced Tactics

Due to being classed as a special move, Byakuren has the ability to cancel her normal attacks into her spell charge. This can be used to Byakuren's advantage as, assuming that the charge is not extended by holding any buttons, Byakuren can recover very quickly while gaining at least a partial charge. Certain normals that have lengthy recovery animation times such as standing (Z)Button-z, which are normally unsafe on block, can be made safer by cancelling them into Byakuren's spell charge. This is crucial for Byakuren's pressure game, as it allows her to maintain the offensive while building up orb charges needed for her specials. Note that not all of Byakuren's normals benefit from this, especially those with quick recovery times such as standing (X)Button-x, which can actually be made dangerously unsafe through this tactic.

Vs. Cirno

Vs. Eirin Yagokoro

Due to the massive amount of projectiles Eirin has, Byakuren players will be very hard pressed to find opportunities to accumulate orb charges, or even be able to get near Eirin. This is especially problematic as Byakuren's only means of getting past projectiles, such as Skanda's Leg and Virupaksa's Eye requires these charges, so without those, Byakuren is more or less a sitting duck. Her best bet is to play conservatively while building meter to use "Brilliance of Mahavairocana", which will counter any of Eirin's projectiles and smack her. After this window of opportunity presents itself, Byakuren can take the fight up close and start using combo strings to gain orb charges.

Vs. Flandre Scarlet

Due to Flandre's constant rushdown-oriented gameplay, Durga's Soul can be an exceptionally useful tool for punishing Flandre, provided that Byakuren can find time to accumulate the charges necessary for them. Finding an opening in Flandre's pressure and responding with a chain ending in Button-F+(Z)Button-z or Button-D+(Z)Button-z can open opportunities for Byakuren to accumulate orb charges, and should be done whenever a knockdown is possible. Once a charge is accumulated, Flandre can be kept at bay with Vidudhaka's Sword, or a combo ending with Hanuman's Dance followed by "Master of Buddhist Cosmology".

As far as Last Words are concerned, "Angiras' Knowledge" can put a quick end to Flandre's fragile health when used in a combo. However, Superhuman "Byakuren Hijiri" can be used if being able to consistently hold orb charges proves to be too difficult. The extra damage on Byakuren's specials during this time helps whittle down Flandre as well.
