Moveset of Menat
Her V-Trigger is Thoth’s Wisdom; she summons six orbs, each linked to her normal attacks. Pressing and releasing a normal attack will cause the ball to fly towards the opponent. She can release any orb using another orb.

Story of Menat
Menat appeared behind Ed, warning him of his fate and that he and someone else are going through hard times. After fighting Ed, she warned him again of his fate before disappearing. She then meets Oro and tries to warn him of her predictions (which he is already aware of). Her crystal ball then glows, showing M. Bison. She had to deal with the lower rank Shadaloo and Aprile soldiers. After frustratingly defeating them, she warns them of Bison’s fate before escaping.
During development, her early designs included a “Pizza Killer,” an Italian delinquent named Rita, and a magician. She is also considered to use other objects for the attack, including smoke and gold dust, and is a tahtib fighter with a staff.
