Squigly is a midrange character who capitalizes off her opponents mistakes. She has great pokes and possesses an arsenal of unique tools and tricks. Squigly can charge herself up and store two different kinds of charges, which can be used to give her specials powerful properties. On the downside, Squigly without a charge is very frail.
- Charges and Stances: Holding the button on any ground special will cause Squigly to enter her charge stance. She will charge up after a few seconds and execute a much stronger version of the move by releasing the button. The stance can also be canceled; this will store your current level of charge. Entering charge stance and exiting it right away is called Stance Canceling and allows you to greatly reduce the recovery on any normal. This frame advantage opens up new pressure strings, more time to back off defensively, or new reset paths and opportunities. On top of the added space control she receives from the availability of each charged special move, Squigly having charge quite literally changes the flow of the game in her favor.
- Space control: Every fighting game character fights to control spacing, but Squigly's toolkit in particular is equipped to do this well. What she lacks in movement speed, she makes up for with small hurtboxes combined with deceptively large hitboxes that make it hard to challenge her buttons, such as her jLK and jHP. Her charged special moves such as Center Stage and Silver Chord counter opponents who commit to actions from fullscreen or fast actions in general, forcing opponents to play at her pace.
- Movement: Both her dash and backdash are rather slow. However, while in charge stance, Squigly gets a fast walking speed. Jumping will be your main movement option, due to Squigly having a double jump, amazing air buttons, and small air hurtboxes. She also has divekicks to fastfall and alter her air momentum, either defensively or to add pressure.
- Charged Sing aka Center Stage is the most unique special move in the game and the foundation of Squigly's gameplan. As the name suggests, it centers the screen on Squigly and reduces its size for few seconds. If your opponent isn't already close to Squigly, they will be pulled in and appear on the edge of the screen. The move will create temporary corners on both sides of the reduced screen which cause wallbounce. Most importantly, charged Sing causes superflash which forces hitstop on the opponent, effectively stopping time for a brief moment. Squigly is also able to cancel charged Sing into any of her supers. This allows you to punish any button the opponent presses from anywhere on the screen, making it Squigly's most threatening tool.
- This superfreeze also keeps opponents stuck on the ground, making Daisy Pusher unjumpable (essentially, like a true 360).
- The superfreeze makes opponents unable to react with a reversal to SBO, given the orb connects with the opponent before the hitstop runs out.
- Charged Sing xx SBO catches dashing opponents, unless they were dashblocking before the superfreeze. Airdashing will always be caught since it's not possible to dashblock in the air.
- The wallbounce is used for throw and assist conversions.
- Moving your assist behind the opponent prior Charged Sing will push them into Daisy Pusher range, even from fullscreen. This can be easily done with Peacock's H Teleport assist, for example.
