Cherri is a highly technical character with an overall weak kit. Her strategy revolves around clashing—that is, forcing both you and your opponent to select a new base attack. Cherri’s versatile styles, ranges, and the ability to force clashes on her opponent mean that her enemy will often be fighting clumsily and will not have access to their best cards, making Cherri’s sub-par attacks rather effective, if she can control the fight.
Cherri has high mobility and plenty of dodges and defense at her disposal, but her most important tools are her clashing tools–the Insight Token, Crimson Style, and Mirage Style. Mirage is especially deadly, because this style is the easiest way to force extended clashes, which may net you 3 or 4 points of bonus damage. Cherri’s Stare base is a powerful tool for recovering your tokens and for extending clashes even further.
Cherri can have difficulty dealing with foes that are able to manipulate their priorities, such as Demitras, Magdelina, and Hepzibah, as matching their priorities to trigger a clash can be tough, effectively taking Mirage out of consideration in her clash toolkit. In these cases, look for opportunities to better capitalize on your other clash tools.
