[edit] Introduction

Nowel Diastasis is an original character created speficially for Magical Battle Arena. She specialises in long range combat. Consequently, her melee capabilities are quite poor, which puts her at a disadvantage in close combat but lethal at range.

Nowel is an unlockable character who is made available by completing story mode with Ruru.

[edit] Command List

[edit] Regular Attacks

A (Chargeable)

Nowel's melee attack. Tapping the button can produce a 3 hit combo where she swings her staff around. The attack can be charged for a single electric orb attack that knocks the enemy away. Burst mode will increase the amount of chainable hits to 5.

Z (Chargeable)

Nowel's projectile attack. She can fire 7 orbs in succession before a break. Charging the attack will produce a single powerful shot with a bigger stun. Burst mode will increase the amount of chainable orbs to 10.

It is possible to move while firing normal shots, but charged shots prevent movement until fired or interrupted.


Basic shield ability. Nowel raises a purple shield in front of her to deflect attacks. Tapping the button along with increase or decrease altitude at close range can allow for teleporting around them.

[edit] Special Attacks

S + A (Chargeable)

Nowel causes 6 orbs to appear around her. These orbs can then be fired off either individually (by slowly inputting the command repeatedly) or all at once (by rapidly inputting the command repeatedly).

Charging the attack will increase the number of orbs to 12, but Nowel can't move while charging.

S + Z (Chargeable)

Nowel fires a simple laser beam at the target. The attack allows for limited aiming to the left or right during the firing stage.

This attack is chargeable, but Nowel is unable to move during this time.

S + X (Must Be Charged)

Nowel summons a magic circle beneath the enemy's feet. If the opponent lingers on it then they become trapped for a few seconds, leaving them open for further attacks. The binding disappears after a few seconds or if the opponent is hit.

Nowel can move while charging but if interrupted before reaching full then the attack fails and the gauge must refill.

[edit] Ultimate Attacks

S + C

Enters Burst Mode. Needed to use ultimate attacks.

S + C + A (Burst Mode Required)

Nowel's first ultimate. She begins casting a spell that causes four beams of energy to descend and cause massive explosions. The area of effect is around Nowel and will catch anyone too close for heavy damage.

S + C + Z (Burst Mode and No Health Bars In Reserve Required)

Nowel's second ultimate. She attempts to bind the opponent. If successful she repeatedly slashes her opponent using her staff before the target is assaulted with magical energy, pushing them away.

If Nowel's bind attempt misses this move will fail.
