Reasons (1): Does there need to be any reason to write up a bouncy ninja babe? Thought not.

Reasons (2): OK if you really need a reason the Advantage Instachange and the Gratuitous Fan Service Schtick obviously haven’t seen enough use in wus. (And yes, before you ask, I am being sarcastic.)

Writeups.org & Amazon.com recommend King of Fighters video games. and some of the Mai figurines. Some.

  • Flame Being is not usable in consecutive Phases. Mai can also project this through any clothing or weaponry she is holding without any harm to the object as long she remains holding it at the end of the round. She often uses this to project a flame attack through the tail of her outfit as well as the fans she holds. She can of course throw the fans, but they are destroyed shortly after they leave her hands. Treat this as a Flame Projection: 04 attack with the diminishing drawback. The fans do still have the dart bonus, though, so she does often throw multiple fans.
