I'm not really sure kinda character this is. He doesn't really seem like pure rush down with fancy dash cancels or teleports, but he isn't a zoner.

He seems like he's good at footsie type range.

Pros:
-Hits
-Like
-A
-Grown
-Ass
-MAN

Cons:
-Fairly slow normals
-Lots of unsafe moves unless covered by an assist or super-canceled
-Predictable approach
-Speed tackle doesn't have start-up invincibility which really, really sucks. Still a good move tho

slow normals? his instant overhead is unblockable by human reactions

his strengths are

1. the slide
2. square dash into j.H is very safe and anbiguous
3. almost untechable grabs; the window for a guard tech for Nova is smaller when compared to other characters
4. instant overhead
5. amazing mobility
6. above average damage output
7. Human Rocket giving two ****s about projectile hypers
8. Human Rocket can hitconfirm in the ground, or in the air (with XFC)
9. fly make his normals safe
10. overhead assist for unblockables + ground bounce reset
11. TAC infinites
12. THC with the beam hyper is very good
13. One of his specials have armor and projectile invulnerability

Weaknesses
1. cr. L doesnt hit low
2. Human Rocket doesnt have invincible startup
3. rocket punch, sf.H and j.S and some other of his stuff are unsafe on block
4. Can be hit out of his airdash
5. and thats all. Yeah Nova is top tier
