Magnolia is an all-around character, with somewhat low weight, high speed, good recovery, and slightly low power. Her basic attacks all utilize different weapons from her home series- swords, rods, knuckles, etc.- and her equipped weapon changes depending on the last utilized normal attack (standards, smashes, or aerials). The equipped weapon affects her Primary Final Smash's effect.
Magnolia's specials are all inspired by Job Abilities from her home series, but tend to focus on those introduced in Bravely Second. She has a support-based edge to many specials, focusing on buffing, debuffing, or indirect damage as opposed to melee attacks.
