Wailing Wraith

This attack can be performed by pressing Forward+Triangle, Triangle, Square, Triangle. This is a decent four hit combo and is one of the best combos to extend your previous combos into new ones. Avoid starting with this combo from neutral because the first hit is high and it can be easily missed if your opponent ducks.

The last hit in this combo will send the enemy in the air making them in the perfect position to follow up with more attacks. Its decent range is also good for punishing enemies with it. Your enemy might block the third hit in the attack and counter with their own so keep an eye out. End the combo early if the attack is blocked.

Sinister Silhouette

This move can be performed by pressing Forward+Cross, Square+Cross. This is a useful move that not only damages the enemy but also switches side with them.

Dark Push

Special Moves

Shadow Tackle

This useful special move can be performed by pressing Back, Front, Triangle. This is the most commonly used Noob’s ranged attack and it is helpful in a lot of scenarios.

Rising Shadow Kick

Tele-Slam (Air+Ground)

This special move can be performed by pressing Down, Up. This attack deals decent damage and is excellent evasive move as well. It can cancel most of your enemy moves and will allow you to bypass their attacks and land your own instead. This is effective against airborne enemies as well. The command is the same for performing the attack in the air or the ground.

Shadow Slide

This special move can be performed by pressing Back, Front, Cross. This is a slow attack however it covers a lot of ground and is effective against enemies trying to land a high hit.

Ghostball

This special move can be performed by pressing Back, Forward, Square. It will render the enemy’s helpless against your next attack as they will not be able to block anything until the status is active or you manage to land a hit on them.

This can be combined with combos to make sure that your enemy is unable to avoid your next combo starter. The projectile itself deals damage to enemies as well when they hit the enemy. Also if your enemy tries to block the Ghostball, it will still pass through and they will acquire the status effect. The starting time is a little high so you will need to watch out for incoming attacks.

Sickle Snag (Sickle Port in Air)

This move can be performed by pressing Down, Back, Square. This is one of Noob’s best moves when it comes to combo finishers which also acts as an effective anti-air. Try to end your combos with this useful move because it will let the enemies fall close to you opening further combo moves.

This move can also be performed in the air which becomes Sickle Port. In the air, press Down, Back, Square to land a Sickle Port. Unlike the ground move, this move is all about movement. Noob will throw his sickle and teleport to the location allowing him to quickly move around the stage avoiding enemy attacks. Use the meter to add an uppercut in the mix as well.

Spirit Ball

This special move can be performed by pressing Back, Forward, Square. This is yet another projectile move. It is much faster than the Ghostball but the enemy can duck under it as it attacks high. Ghostball attacks mid so it cannot be ducked under but it is slower. You can pick whichever move suits your build more and use that move more while fighting with Noob.

Shadow Strike

This move can be performed by pressing Back, Forward, Triangle. This is a very fast, low hitting attack and it can help you end combos very effectively. Since Noob uses his Shadow Form for this attack, this attack is very safe even if your opponent blocks the attack.

Sickle Toss

Sickle Toss can be performed by pressing Down, Back, Triangle. This is a powerful high attack which can be changed by using special inputs. If you want to use the default attack, use the command and have mid-distance from your opponent.

Hold back while this attack and the distance will reduce and the attack will hit opponents closer to you. Pres forward and the attack will hit enemies which are far from you. Hold up and you will hit the enemies which are at the other end of the fullscreen.

Shadow Dive (Air)

This special move can be performed by pressing Down, Back, Circle. This attack can only be performed in the air. This is a very useful air-to-ground move that will deal a decent amount of damage to your enemies. This move is excellent for opponents who are using uppercut a lot or have a strong anti-air.

Fatal Blow

Noob’s Fatal Blow takes a little while to start up but once you grab hold of the enemy, the attack is excellent. To avoid the slow startup, try to start a combo and then add the Fatal Blow at the end for a massive combo finish while dealing massive damage to your enemy.

General Playing Tips

  • Since the initial inputs for both Empty Grave and Tormented Souls are the same, it gives you the best opportunity to decide which move you want to end the combo with. If your opponent blocks the first two hits, end the combo with Empty Grave otherwise go for Tormented Souls because Tormented Souls is highly punishable when blocked.
  • Use Teleport after landing a Sickle Toss to combo the attack. The speed and distance required for Sickle Toss make it very hard to combo it with any other Noob’s moves.
