Painting Panda doesn't have as much of a central focused strategy the way the other fighters do. Painting Panda is all about causing chaos and messing up everyone plans.
regardless of the button you use or the bonus combo damage, this attack will always only deal 1 damage. Fortunately, you can use any direction and any button to pull this off. It's a great way to throw any attack out there to build a combo and force your opponent to draw. This is a great attack to use just before New Canvas or Kick the Bucket.
Basic Sketch lets you turn any one cards from your hand into a wild card of sorts. You can't use them as a Heavy or Special button, but you can use it as any direction, a light, or a medium. If all you're missing from a Hyper Combo is a Medium, well there you have it. It will still deal the damage that Light or Medium would when it's used as a button. It only lasts until the end of the turn, so make it snappy.
Like one of your opponents attacks? Why not copy it. Plagiarism lets you add any 1 of your opponents attacks to your character sheet. If you use this attack multiple times, you can copy multiple different attacks. You still require all the directional cards and buttons that are normally required to make that attack.
Don't like your hand? Perfect! Just redraw it with New Canvas. As long as you don't empty your hand, New Canvas forces you and your opponent to put your hand back into the deck and draw 3 cards. This is particularly awesome when you've attacked your opponent twice, forced them to draw 3 cards, and then you force them back into the deck.
Color By Numbers
slows down damage you take from buttons. Light won't do damage, Medium will do 1, Heavy will do 1, and Special will do 2 damage. A pretty hefty damage reduction.
Kick the Bucket
Good attack to use after you've wasted all of your buttons with Panda Paw. Your opponent will also have a larger hand to discard from. This attack will also force a Block out of your opponent's hand because it is a button.
