Overview
Sora is a versatile, floaty sword character who has the tools for almost every situation. He relies on his hitboxes, Magic spells, and disjointed normals in order to land one of his rewarding combos, and then edgeguard the opponent with his superior offstage options.

At long range, his Magic, Firaga and Thundaga, can influence his opponents movement. His fast and long reaching Dash Attack is great for whiff punishing, while using Magic and Sonic Rave as a movement tool can keep opponents on their toes. In addition, his third spell, Blizzaga, is useful in the mid range, as its wide area of coverage, high shield damage, potential follow ups, and transcendent hitboxes can shut down most challenges. Once up close to the opponent, the unique bounce property on N-Air and F-Air, as well as their low shieldstun and shieldlag forces the opponent into a guessing game on shield. Mixing in Fastfalling, N-Air, and the direction Sora lands in can confuse opponents into picking a bad option that can be punished.

Once Sora wins an neutral exchange, his high execution combo strings rack up damage quickly, using dragdowns, loops, and more. Outside of combos, Sora can still juggle an opponent with his long lasting, disjointed U-Air, or edgeguard them with his many options offstage. His high Double Jump, Aerial Sweep and Sonic Blade all allow Sora to stay offstage and keep the opponent from getting back on stage.

Sora’s biggest flaw comes from his floatiness. Characters with strong projectiles, long reaching hitboxes that can also cover jump height, or fast movement speed can overwhelm Sora. Sora can struggle to approach characters that overwhelm him. His floatiness extends to his Double Jump, which deprives him from a movement tool and escape option that a majority of the roster can typically have access to. As a result, his disadvantage state can often be more difficult and harder to escape from compared to other characters.

If you enjoy having a strong neutral that can lead to high execution, high damaging combos and having a constant offstage options, Sora (ソラ) could be the character for you.

Summary
Sora is an all-rounder sword character who uses projectiles and disjoints to harass his opponents, while having a very strong offstage presence and a high damage output
Pros Cons
  • Strong Neutral: Sora's disjointed attacks coupled with his Magic allows him to easily control space
  • High Combo Damage: Sora can put his opponents in almost inescapable loops at most percents with the use of N-Air and F-Air's first two hits
  • Recovers from Anywhere: Sora's double jump is a floaty one. Coupled with his aerial drift, Aerial Sweep (Up-B) and Sonic Rave (Side-B), Sora can recover from almost anywhere on the stage
  • Edgeguarding: Sora's recovery coupled with his disjoints and Magic makes him one of the best edgeguarders in the game
  • Versatile: Sora's kit grants him the ability to deal with almost anything
  • Low Mobility: Due to a combination of raw stats and a floaty double jump (which hinders vertical movement), Sora has a rough time getting around projectiles and large hitboxes
  • Struggles to Land: A combination of his aforementioned double jump, floaty movement and a lack of fast aerial moves makes landing as Sora a chore
  • Lightweight: Sora is very light and isn't good at escaping out of combos. This means that, on average, Sora will die earlier than average
  • High Execution: Sora's high damage combos, on top of being tight and requiring techniques such as IDJShorthand for "Instant Double-Jump", a technique used to Double Jump as low to the ground as possible.s, are spacing-dependant and changes depending on how much rage Sora has
Magic
All three of Sora's Spells.
Sora's Neutral Special, "Magic", is a move that rotates through three different spells. Sora starts the match with Firaga, a medium-speed fire projectile. The next time you press Neutral Special, you use Thundaga, an downward travelling attack of three thunder pillars. Following Thundaga, Magic will cycle into Blizzaga, a short ranged burst of ice that freezes the opponent on contact. The spells always follow this order, and upon death you keep the last spell you had loaded. Being able to rotate different spells for different situations is important, so be sure to keep track of when you are safe to switch your spells!
Floaty Double Jump
Sora sports an unusually slow and floaty double jump similar to Ness and Mewtwo that gradually accelerates him vertically, rather than a more typical immediate double jump like most of the roster. Sora's floaty jump enables him to catch characters almost anywhere on the screen in terms of vertical positioning, and pairs well with his specials to offer a great degree of flexible space control. It is also unique in terms of its acceleration, Sora is seemingly "stuck in place" when he uses double jump.

However, his double jump comes with its own downsides. Sora cannot readily double jump away from opponents, either defensively or as a bait if he wants to change positions more suddenly, and also makes him take longer to reactively juggle or catch high recoveries.

Jab is Sora's safest and easiest combo ender. The quickness and range helps to make up for inconsistencies, and the property of pulling in opponents helps ensuring that you setup a good situation as long as you hit the remaining jab moves.

  • Grounded poking option with generous active frames.
  • The single hit is useful for two framing, and will kill opponents off the side at around 130%.
  • The autocombo version is useful for doing more damage, and as a timing mixup if you think the opponent will preemptively mash out of the gap.
  • Inputting F-tilt1 (combo version) will always include F-tilt2.

Sora will be using this move to cover the grounded space in front of him. If you want stronger stage positioning in combos, the move can also be used when ending combos early.

U-tilt is often seenin early percent combos, as it sets the opponent up for U-Air juggles. It can also be used as an anti air, albeit risky as if the move whiffs Sora will be stuck in endlag.

  • Solid grounded poke that provides a combo afterwards

This is a very important piece of Sora's neutral. It hits low, can be spaced to be safe on shield, and has solid reward at all but very high percents (160% + on midweights). At low percents, the move can go into N-Air, F-Air, Jab 1, and even Pivot Grab. At mid to higher percents, U-Air, F-Air and B-Air will be more relevant. The safest option is to do U-Air since it is very consistent with its coverage and kill power. U- Smash can work, but is more percent specifi and is inconsistent vs great DI and fast escape options such as f2 airdodges.

  • Great for closing distance. The fastest option with the most amount of space he can cover.
  • Can two frame recoveries certain recoveries and hits most ledgehangs with the strong hitbox. Great for covering airdodge to ledge.
  • Can cross up on shield

Another attack that's key for Neutral. The intangibility on Sora's legs means it can be used as a whiff punish on opponent's landings, this can even trade/clank with Palutena and Snake Dash attack in certain cases. Will reliably connect from Firaga in Neutral. Because Sora is slower on the ground, its important to use this move to make the opponent respect your burst range. Must be used sparingly because of it's bad shield safety.

  • Combo finisher, kills earlier than you may think
  • Active for 4 frames, and puts out a big hitbox
  • Sora reels back during the animation, and crouches while travelling, which can be used to dodge certain attacks.
  • Can be safe if spaced and also charged. At half charge it is -12 on shield.

Sora's F-Smash is a strong kill tool that lasts long for a smash attack. This is Sora's strongest move knockback wise, and knowing what can confirm into F-Smash is very important to know.

  • Combo finisher and sometimes a decent Anti Air
  • While the key portion of the attack has a sweetspot, the larger part of the hitbox can cover a large portion of a platform. With proper positioning at PS2, you can cover the entire platform and all tech options with few exceptions.

All though it doesn't have the same killpower as F-Smash, it is more consistent in sets since most of Sora's moves send the opponent vertically. Because of this, it can be easier to kill earlier with certain confirms than just landing it raw. The move can be used as an out of shield option, but has less range and less safety than his other out of shield options.

  • Good option for pressuring the opponent
  • Will hit most characters standing while rising

Has the same bounce properties as the aforementioned N-Air1,2 Forward Air's main neutral application is to pressure with a forward hitbox, it is also flexible in pressure with how you choose to drift. All types of bouncing are unsafe, but very hard to react too out of shield. In some matchups, its unsafe for the opponent to directly attempt an punish because Sora can drift very far away from the opponent while still having a counterattack option. F-Air1,2 is also a fantastic combo extender, see Setplay and Combos for more info. This is also a better tool at edgeguarding than Nair in terms of its knockback angles.

  • Strong Bair that can kill very early when used for corner pressure or edgeguards.

Sora's B-Air is a sword sweep similar to Cloud or Sephiroth's back air. Only with less range and safety. His B-Air is fairly slow at frame 13, but because of the his floatyness along with low total frames, he can input more actions before hitting the ground, even when doing it shorthop rising. This includes N-Air and DoubleJump before landing from SH, Double B-Airs and B-Air into U-Air touching the ground. While being strong, it can be hard to hit due to its low active frames and slow double jump, but this is mostly vs quick recoveries.

  • Hits grounded opponents if timed
  • IDJ U-Air will combo into Up-B N-Air, or other follow ups
  • The Key part of the Key is a hitbox, will scoop opponents

Sora's U-Air is flexible. Not only does it have good knockback for killing, but also for combos at lower percent. It also covers a lot of space, lasts a long time and comes out at frame 10. U-Air guarantees juggles on most characters. Because U-Air hits grounded opponents, when spaced landing with U-Air is typically uncontestable if the opponent doesn't anti air you first. Use this move often.

  • When Autocancelled, can be plus on Shield
  • Autocancelling also helps with landing, as it will throw off the opponents punish timing

D-Air is a mediocre tool in Sora's kit. Offstage, the move has some use as a way to quickly cover the area below in a circular motion. although the upward angle the opponent will be sent at can often help them recover if they still have a jump left. As a Stall and Fall, D-Air can also be used as a landing mixup, although it is very reactable and unsafe when not autocancelled.

  • Travelling Projectile
  • Has an early and late hitbox, important for combos

Firaga is an integral part of Sora's kit because of its flexibility. The projectile is relatively safe when spaced, and can confirm into combos, safest and quickest option being Dash attack. Can use multiple fireballs in succession, where the first has more hitstun than the ones after, meaning it is usually only the first one that can true combo into other parts of Sora's kit like Dash attack, grab and Sonic Blade. The projectile itself is important for controlling space in neutral, but its reward on hit means opponents will often be scared of running into it and will play passive.Firaga can also be used when edgeguarding to gimp or control space for easier edgeguarding. Can also be used for stalling in the air. Firaga is without a doubt the most flexible spell.

  • A short ranged flurry of icicle spikes that freeze the opponent.
  • Multiple hits increase freeze time.
  • Usually safe with spacing
  • Can be used to setup shield break scenarios

Blizzaga has a lot of use cases for different situations. Most often, in Neutral it acts as a stop sign that prevents the opponent from running at Sora, and on hit can often frame trap the opponent. It is hard to know exactly how long the opponent will be stuck in ice, but you can make educated guesses and do safe moves that doesn't compromise your advantage. Doing landing aerials is relatively safe, while Up-B have a higher chance of connecting after they thaw out, if they are still frozen after the final hit they can do a reversal. Even if you can't score the kill, it is still a way to deal damage. Keep in mind while nothing is guaranteed, the opponent is still under pressure while in ice. Firaga will thaw out the opponent more quickly due to its fire effect.

  • Recovery tool, movement option, combo option. The most niche "Swiss Army Knife" of Specials.
  • Gains more endlag and becomes more unsafe on shield the more you attack.

Sonic Blade is a three stage move that can be stopped at any point in time. After pressing forward or back with B for the first lunge, holding a direction afterwards will take you in that direction for a second lunge. Holding another direction will cause Sora to do a third and final lunge, after which he enters special fall. Although you cannot angle the first attack, because you can angle the follow ups and choose how many times you attack, the move can often be unpredictable for the opponent to catch. Holding B when an opponent is near you will cause you to auto target and fly towards them, giving you slightly more range but giving up control in where you go. If you have died with this move on accident before, most likely you were holding B instead of letting go to choose a direction.

  • Recovery tool and Combo Finisher
  • Sora's fastest OOS (not counting foostool) at Frame 9
  • can go into Sonic Rave afterwards

Up-B is a major factor as to why Sora's offstage game is so strong. A recovery tool that can double as an active hitbox that sends the opponent back offstage has strong use, but when coupled with Sora's high and long lasting Double Jump, and the fact he can Sonic Rave afterwards, often means you can go as far as you want and still make it back as long as you have two of those resources. Up-B is also used for kill confirms, as it rises the opponent into the air and can kill sooner off the top.

Sora's Counterattack is considered one of the strongest counters for the game. All though slow for a counter on startup, it can stun opponents before hitting them. Any aerial or normal attack will get stunned, and the opponent will be hurtbox shifted in favour of getting hit by Sora's counterattack. This move can deactivate invincibilty from moves like Banjo & Kazooie's Wonderwing, leaving them open for the attack. This is important for Sora's edgeguarding capabilities, as he can stop recoveries like aforementioned Banjo & Kazooie, King K. Rool and Lucas who have recoveries that traditionally go through counters. In the case of King K. Rool, Sora can stand on stage, counter and then hit him without going offstage. There are exceptions when it comes to certain angles, but it usually is more consistent with certain recoveries than others. Sephiroth's Octoslash at certain ranges is a prime example of the counter missing its mark even if you activate it.
