Belly Dance Spin (Forward + H) (70,000)
A forward spin that Shantae uses as she dances, hitting the opponent multiple times.
Elephant Stomp (In the air Down + H) (80,000)
Transforming into her elephant form, Shantae will come crashing down into the ground and causing an OTG bounce to any opponent caught underneath her during this attack.
Fireball Launch (Qcf + A) (85,000)
A standard fireball attack that Shantae will launch from her hands, going either straight at two different speeds (L and M) or at an upward angle (H) when on the ground. This attack can be used in the air as well, being able to be aimed in two different directions.
Thunder Puff (Dp + A) (100,000)
Shantae will summon a Thunder puff that will float up into the air and strike down a bolt of lightning. She can either summon it in front of her (L) at an upward angle (M) or directly above her (H)
Pike Ball (Qcb + A) (65,000)
A protective move, Shantae will quickly spin a pike ball around her body to knock back enemies that are getting too close. Due to its low start-up and recover time, it's excellent for using when you want to get out of a corner.
Hair Shield (Dpb + A) (90,000)
Shantae's counter ability, being able to counter low attacks (L) normal attacks (M) or projectiles (H) using her long ponytail and using a grab and kick motion. She counters projectiles with a projectile of her own, an undodgeable fireball that's guaranteed a hit once the opponent hits her during this counter.
Monkey Bullet (In the air Qcf + A) (75,000)
Transforming into her small monkey form, Shantae will quickly dash from side of the screen to the other, causing damage to the opponent if they happen to get in her way as she does so. This attack isn't anything special, but it's VERY fast.
Elephant Charge (Charge back + Forward + A) (120,000)
Transforming into her Elephant form, Shantae will dash across the screen and cause a wall bounce to the opponent if she comes into contact with them. This attack has one hit of super armor on it, giving her some leverage over heavy hitting characters.
Spitfire Launch (Qcf + S) (Costs half a hyper bar) (110,000)
An upgraded version of her fireball technique, Shantae will launch three larger fireballs, all at the same time, going in three different directions. This costs half a hyper bar to use, giving Shantae some similarities to C.Viper in buff moves.
Crash Puff (Dp + S) (Costs half a hyper bar) (160,000)
An upgraded version of her Thunder Puff technique, Shantae will summon a Crush puff onto the field, causing an explosion and a wall bounce to any opponent within close proximity of the attack when it's activated.
Super Pike Ball (Qcb + S) (Costs half a hyper bar) (95,000)
An upgraded version of her Pike ball attack, Shantae will summon a super pike ball that will spin several times around her at quick speeds, causing damage to anyone within its proximity of damage range. It's a very good defensive technique that requires half a hyper bar to use.
Flamethrower (Qcf + AA) (265,000)
Shantae will let loose a large flamethrower attack, shooting straight out and engulfing the opponent in large flames. The attack goes almost full screen and can even catch airborne opponent if they're low enough to the ground. This attack works like Dormammu's Chaotic Flame.
Elephant Rage (Charge back + Forward + AA) (300,000)
Transforming into her Elephant form, Shantae will rush across the screen much faster and stronger than before, doing multiple hits to the opponent before sending them flying into the wall. This attack is almost exactly like that of Juggernaut's head crush hyper combo from MVC2.
Mega Pike Ball (Qcb + AA) (250,000 Max)
The ultimate hyper combo when it comes to protection and defense, Shantae will summon forth a Mega Pike Ball to do major amounts of damage to her opponent as she can now fully move around using this attack. This attack lasts for only a few seconds (6 seconds to be precise) but it's very useful. It works a lot like Vergil's Summoned Swords HC.
Level 3: She's Got the Moves (Dp + AA) (420,000)
This attack is started by a very fast belly dance spin into the opponent, if it connects, Shantae will continuously do damage to the opponent before throwing them up into the air using her air. Then, quickly transforming into her monkey form, she'll Monkey bullet across the screen to reach the top before the opponent does. As she's over the opponent, she'll grab them then transform into her elephant form, bringing them down into the ground for a final smash of damage as she then does a small dance afterwards, ending the attack.
Shantae will begin to belly dance, moving her hips from side to side as she then winks at the camera
#1: Ha ha! I did it!
#2: Looks like Sequin Land is safe once again!
#3: You've just been burned by my fiery dancing passion!
#4: Sky is going to owe me one big time for that one!
#5: And I thought Risky Boots was trouble! Phew!
Against Dr. Strange: What? Were all those stories of your skills just a fake?
Against Felicia: Thanks for the dance moves! Let's do it again sometime!
Against Deadpool: I'm not a full genie! And I'm NOT giving you any Chimichangas!
Against Tron: Are you sure you're not related to Risky Boots? You two are like almost identical in motive!
Against Amaterasu: Goddess of the Sun, I thank you for your guidance.
"I need HELP!!"
