Soul Calibur IV Guide - Seong Mi-na


Seong Mi-na

Age: 23
Birthplace: Jirisan, Korea
Height: 5'4”
Weight: 106 lbs.
Birth Date: November 3
Blood Type: A
Weapon: Zanbatou (Halberd)
Weapon Name: Scarlet Thunder
Discipline: Seong Style Longsword Rod Arrangement
Family: Father/Seong Han Myong, Mother & Brother/Deceased

Unlocked: Purchase for 4000 Gold on the fighter select screen.

When Seong Mi-na learns of the cursed sword's corrupting power, she realizes Yun-seong—who is like a younger brother to her—must be stopped in his quest to acquire Soul Edge. Though his intention to use the sword to protect his country is admirable, he simply does not understand the true nature of the weapon he seeks. Upon confronting Yun-seong with this, he does not comply and instead presses on. So, Seong Mi-na sets out to Ostrheinsburg, where the Azure Knight and Soul Edge lie, to find Yun-seong before he makes a dire mistake.


Seong Mi-na offers range similar to Kilik and shares several of the bo staff-wielders moves, however the two characters are very much different. Many of her attacks are slower than Kilik's for one thing, and may be a tougher character for newcomers to pick up. Seong Mi-na is definitely a long-range fighter; she won't fare well during close-range battling, so her strong long-range attacks must be used to keep her opponent at bay.

Combo Clip

The video below shows the following combinations. The directional notation system is used to describe each move.

Combo 2: 6B, B~3B~6B, B
Combo 3: CH 4K, B~3K, K~2K
Combo 4: CH WR B~66B~WC 1B

 

Strategy

Please read through 'The Basics' and 'Fighting Terms' for an explanation of the 'directional notation' and the fighting terms used to explain strategy.

Since Seong Mi-na is more effective at long-range or mid-range, use moves such as Fang Sweep (1A) and Shadow Step Slice (4A) to back away from your opponent. Counter 8-Way Run with Sweeping Blade (2A B) and Sparrow Sweep (hold 1_7, A), both quick low sweeps. Your opponent can easily avoid Mi-na's linear verticals by sidestepping, so mix-up horizontal slashes with verticals Lightning Thrust (6B) followed by Lightning Fang (while crouching 1B), or Thrusting Fang (6B, B) to keep them guessing. Punish whiffs with Spinning Divide (hold 6, A B) or her Holding Treasure (1A B) and Opening Treasure (3A B) attack throws if you're close enough.

Celestial Kick (6K) has Guard Impact properties and can repel incoming vertical attacks, making it quite useful during close-range combat. Check Mate (4K, B) can be used to repel horizontal attacks and stuns on strike. There are a couple of quick moves in Seong Mi-na's arsenal; many of her kicks are quite fast, as is Hilt Kick (6A, K). Twin Fang Strike (while rising A, A) into Back Step Fang (1B, B) is a good way to gain some distance from your foe if they're too close.

Dancing Blade Kick (1B, K) is good for punishing, and the Back Step Fang (1B, B) variation can be used to gain some distance from your enemy. If Mi-na ever has her back to the edge of the ring, Holding Treasure (1A B) can Ring Out careless opponents. Mi-na's two attack throws are good for hitting foes while they're rising or if they immediately guard high after rising. Seong's Crushing Long Blade (9A B) is an Unblockable attack that deals massive damage, however it has a slow-start up animation and can therefore be easily sidestepped by opponents. It is best used immediately after downing an opponent.
