4/11 Balance Update Notes

Reduce the power of Parfait and improve the overall Legends playability.

[Legend Changes]





Reducing situations where Kaiser was vulnerable because hitstun was too long when hitting an opponent.


[Punching Machine] 

  • Aerial Attack’s ground strike hitstun duration decreased.



Basic Attack


  • 2nd, 3rd, and 4th attacks’ damage decreased. 1050 → 900
  • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd attacks’ hitbox reduced, decreasing the chances of getting hit when behind Parfait.
  • Aerial Attack landing recovery increased by 0.05 s.


[Ice Spike] 

  • Aerial Skill’s travel distance and hitbox slightly decreased.



  • Damage decreased. 1250 → 1050


[Ducky and Swan]


[Curtain Call] 

  • The projectile’s knockback angle was adjusted to be higher, causing opponents to be more airborne when hit.

  • Snow (Basic Attack’s 2nd attack)
