I'm going to put together a complete damage list for a few VRs, starting with Fei-Yen VH. The purpose of this exercise is not just to list the damages. I am more interested in studying how damages drop with distance, which tends to happen on RW attacks for most VRs. I will tablulate this extremely precisely with Fei-Yen VH but am hoping to discover general patterns which will allow other VRs to be completely described in a more succinct manner.

I will use Vox "Dan" as the main punching bag for damages because he has exactly 1000 HP. However I will note that Force has a minor glitch with HP readouts. Sometimes they will be off by 0.1% even when they should be exact according to the moves and damages that have been sustained. It is not the case that the claimed move damages or HP values are imprecise or slightly off because the 0.1% errors go in both directions and balance out after successive identical hits. It is merely an issue with Force having a funky way of calculating the damage percentages for display purposes only. I suspect Force calculates these percentages based off of Temjin 747A who has 1050 HP because he never has these 0.1% glitches against moves that do a perfectly whole number percent of damage to him. (But there are instead going to be moves that do fractional percent damage to Temjin 747A). I might use Temjin 747A as a punching bag for some tests but I will adjust for his HP.

What we can see so far is that in the region where damage is dropping with distance, it decreases linearly, but in discrete step intervals instead of perfectly smoothly. Also the first and last decrease may be less than the decreases in-between. At the exact distances where damage is transitioning to the next level, the damage is unstable. It may be either the greater or lesser value depending on exactly what the fractional distance is. Usually the damage stays at this value for successive shots, but occasionally you can get a random mixture of values while standing at the same spot if you are right on the border.

I briefly tested Fei-Yen VH standing RW against Temjin 747A for comparison. The damage dropping region on him occurs between 111m and 261m, instead of 110m and 260m against Vox "Dan". This is odd and backwards because body rubbing tests suggest that Vox "Dan" is 1m longer than Temjin in the front. But for collision detection against projectiles, Temjin is longer. My explanation is that VR hitboxes aren't perfect cylinders vertically. Incoming projectiles may strike at a different height than where two rubbing VRs touch each other.

The closest Fei-Yen VH can stand to Vox "Dan" increases from 10m to 12m in this case because the attack animation of standing LW pushes Fei-Yen VH an extra 2m back. Note this also suggests that the forward arm length (initial location at which the projectile appears relative to her center) of standing LW is 2m longer than standing RW. Separate tests I did also showed that standing LW appears roughly 6m to the left of her center, while standing RW appears roughly 3m to the right of her center. Fei-Yen's natural half-body width is 4m in comparison. Sideways arm length doesn't really affect these tests though because it is in a perpendicular direction.

Comparing the data for standing LW with standing RW reveals other new things. The distance step intervals are larger than for standing RW. Furthermore, the step intervals slowly get larger with increasing distance, both for standing LW and RW. Reflecting upon this, I realized what creates these step intervals. They are caused by the discrete frame rate of the game, together with the speed of the projectile. Therefore, we can in fact measure the speed of the projectile by looking at this data! Another thing we learn is that projectiles speed up slightly as they travel. This may be a general phenomena for many energy projectiles. Both standing LW and standing RW appear to have identical acceleration values relative to their base speed. Let's make some graphs with our data.

Turbo LW randomly puts the enemy into an electric stun, otherwise they get a normal stagger which pushes them back 30m. The arm length of turbo LW pushes Fei-Yen out to 14m, but 1m of this occurs from the recovery animation because if the enemy staggers they only get pushed out to 43m.

### Re: VR move and damage lists, with distance attenuation

Kagekiyo 'Forest' Information dump (incomplete, but will be more thorough than japanese wiki):

RW 25%

90-70 dmg

very good but need to watch ammo. very safe and big damage if you land a full gauge. can displace by positioning tip of spear. The main neutral attack

cRW 25% (can chain two)

50 dmg

bad tracking, no homing and limited range. generally useless

TRW 100%

(0-400) 200-160 dmg

zero tracking or homing, tiny hitbox. even disappears at range. goes over walls but garbage unless used point blank. Mountain has a much better TRW which is why people consider it better.

cTRW 100%

80-120 dmg & stun at >133 range

No tracking or homing, slow moving. Only reason to use this is to get a stun for a guaranteed combo. Does more damage the further the projectile flies, but it’s pointless to try to take advantage of.

jRW 20%x3

50x3 dmg

Has some uses as a support attack or finisher. Decent damage. basically normal RW in the air

jTRW 100%

120dmg

tiny laser. good luck hitting with it

GDRW

no homing

fGDRW

55x3 dmg

No homing. General use ground forward dash attack, but weak. Using increased rotation makes this a fair bit better.

30x2 dmg

Decent safe dash attack if used at very low altitude.

sideADRW 40%

40x2 dmg

more damage than forwards close up. but hard to hit.

back & backdiagADRW 40%

40x2 dmg

LW 70%

50 dmg

Flies forward a bit, then freezes before going at opponent. Very unreliable as to actually hitting. Safe to throw out as it has a short animation, so feel free to use it for pressure if you have no other use for the gauge. All non-forward dash LW behave like the same.

cLW 70%

all ranges: 50 dmg

Flies in a straight line towards your opponent. No homing makes this very hard to hit with. Still has uses though.

jLW 70%

? dmg

floats in place and does nothing. useless air-mine

TLW 100%

150 dmg

High homing ability to very long range, damages with a big explosion. Excellent support and pressure tool, but the attack animation takes long. Can use behind low walls while staying safe.

jTLW 100%

100 dmg

inferior to ground version, but may be useful in rare situations

fGDLW 70%

50 dmg

superb homing at range. there is usually no reason to use this over the air dash variant though.

fADLW 70%

50 dmg

superb homing at range. use with a low air dash to get immediate landing recovery. very good safe attack for chip damage and teammate assist.

CW 55%

close(120): 210 dmg

far(560-660): 111 dmg

Low horizontal homing like all following CW types. decent at hitting jumping enemies. goes over many walls. big damage up close.

cCW 40% / slide half cancel: 26%

close(160)-far(460): 80 dmg

very high knockdown value. slow moving. tracking and homing are terrible and stop very quickly, making this very useless as it flies in a straight line.

fGDCW 55%

close(0-?): 210 dmg

far(500): 111 dmg

Your most powerful forward dash attack. Good anti-air. Note that the damage values are still exactly the same as neutral CW.

close(0-?): 100 dmg

far(500): 60 dmg

fADCW 55%

close(0-?): 160 dmg

Very high vertical homing & can aim directly below. Safer to throw out than ground version.

keeps homing indefinitely. good vertical homing
