History

A.B.A is one of the playable characters from the Guilty Gear fighting game series by Arc System Works and was introduced as the only completely new playable character in Guilty Gear Isuka (2003). She returned in Judgment (2006 and all the Guilty Gear XX updates from Guilty Gear XX Slash (2005) up to Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus R (2012).

A.B.A did not return in Guilty Gear Xrd (2014) or any of its updates so far.

Character Background

A.B.A is an artificial life-form called a homunculus in the game and was created by a scientist who was taken by the military short before she opened her eyes for the first time.She lived the first ten years of her life alone in isolation.

Trivia

Her name is a direct reference to the popular Swedish pop band ABBA. Her musical theme in the GG XX games is actually the only one that was not composed by the series creator, Daisuke Ishiwatari but by Masaomi Kikuchi.

Game Play

A.B.A is one of the slowest Guilty Gear characters and has a rather defensive play style. Her biggest strength is her Moroha Mode that increases her running speed as well as different and much more effective moves, the downside is that the Moroha Mode drains her health whenever she performs a move.
