Playstyle

Leah is a quick, in-your-face rushdown character, with many options that can overwhelm and even debilitate your opponent. Leah's movement speed is quite good, her jumps are solid and she even has a slight air dash. Leah's Viral Shot is a projectile that can inflict various status effects onto opponents, and such effects are decided by her Prescription ability. Not only does Viral Shot have good range, but it is also quick, and can be used in the air. Viral Shot's Ground-to-Air movement also provides an interesting getaway and mobility option. Mad Cutter is a good pressure option, due to it moving Leah forward, its decent coverage, and its three inputs. Weak Clear!'s stun is also a good way to take advantage of Special-Cancel Tag-Outs, and the Strong version's wallbounce can offer a good combo to skilled players.

However, a big flaw of Leah's is low health and defense. When Leah is comboed, if she can't get out of the combo in time, she may die. Without a practical overhead, Leah becomes susceptible to jump-ins from the opposing side, and a weak guard means she cannot block pressure for too long. Leah also suffers from the recover on some of her moves. Clinomania, Mad Cutter and Lethal Injection are all good moves, but result in noticeable recovery times. Furthermore, Clear! is very disadvantageous when blocked. Finally, Leah often relies on using meter. Clear! is good for comboing, but the recovery time means that it is best to combo into it using a Special-Cancel Tag-Out, which requires meter. Also, (unless the Shiver Virus is chosen), Lethal Injection is practically impossible to combo from without a Hyper-Cancel Tag-Out, which adds more meter onto an already Level 2 Hyper. Leah is also prone to Tag Counter due to her weak defenses, which adds even more meter use to an already meter-heavy fighter.

Overall, Leah is very good in the right hands, but requires strategy, skill, and practice in order to fully understand her and reach her potential.
