Despite flight, Painwheel's problem is mobility. She's only good right in the opponent's face, but she has trouble getting there. She doesn't have an air dash and her ground dash is clumsy. She needs assists, but also kind of sucks as an assist, so she's pretty limited in where she can be on a team.

She also builds meter extremely slowly for reasons I never understood. Most other characters can get to 5 bars twice as fast as her, which is a problem because her her level 2 and 3 would help her crappy defensive options.

She's still a good character. Once you touch your opponent with any normal she's going to hit you like a beast, but that's true of 75% of the cast anyway. There are no weak characters in Skullgirls. It's just that almost every other character is better.

painwheel as a solo is pretty bad even as assist theres no reason to use her she does have a safe dhc which is really good. as a point character with right assist she will wreck cookies she has safe air normals on block. every combo string she has u can burst bait if u wanted to do it. her armor helps in getting in with certain characters but not something u wanna use all the time in neutral. charging armor leaves you stationary and can be grabbed out of. her best air normal is gonna be j'mp its very active a large hitbox and moves painwheels hit box behind her but it has a decent start up. her fly mechanic is what makes her amazing she can do double overhead whiff into low or grab and she can do crossups really easily with j'mk and j'hk and her damage is top 4 in the game her overall character is not the best but as a point character she is one of the top characters.
