Weaknesses: Nothing notable

Notable Attacks and Techniques:

  • Tartarus Griet: Cervantes slams the opponent to the ground, throws them into the air with his swords, and then teleports above them to fire a soul-charged bullet, which sends them hurtling down to earth.
  • Cursed Roman Fire: Cervantes brandishes his pistol sword and shouts "Get ready! Now die!" and fires off a powerful blast.

Note: Many of Cervantes' abilities come from the various weapons he can equip (Minus abilities that are Inferno related). As such, in battle the creator should specify what weapon(s) he is allowed to have.

Note 2: It should be noted that in battle, if the creator uses Cervantes wielding Soul Edge, then if defeated Inferno will appear to fight the opponent. So the creator should be wary of this when making Cervantes matches and more than likely restrict it.
