Whiffing an invincible reversal against Menat in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition Season 4 will give you flashbacks of Season 3 Abigail

An interesting change was implemented for Season 4 of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. Attacks that are invincible starting at frame one will cause the character to take 1.2x the normal amount of damage during the recovery counter hit phase.

This was particularly peculiar because many fans have noted the lack of defensive options rather than the abundance of them. Season 4 is essentially introducing yet another reason to second guess using that invincible reversal in high pressure situations.

Although Menat's V-Trigger 1 received an increase in the number of V-Gauge bars needed to activate it, many still believe that Menat might be a top tier contender this season. Evidently, her damage output is still quite good.

Recently, Yuzuru19845210 posted a combo of Menat's that fully utilizes her EX meter and V-Gauge. The thing to take away here is the damage, not the uniqueness of the combo.

Without any resets, Cammy — a character with 900 stun — was stunned in the middle of the sequence. As a result, most of Cammy's health bar was occupied by red health.

It really does remind you of Season 3 Abigail and his damage output, doesn't it?
