Introduction

MvC2anakaris.png

Anakaris has extremely low vitality and is hard to learn to play at a high level, so most people have steered away from him. He is from the Darkstalkers series.

His Super Cobra Strike super does amazing damage and is easy to combo into. His infinite does excellent damage and is not too hard once you get it started.

Colors

First row: LP, HP, A1. Second row: LK, HK, A2.

Infinites

Anakaris has a infinitely loopable combo that involves a "AAA" assist and his Curse attack. You can also guardbreak the next character and put them back into the Curse loop.

ASSISTED CURSE INFINITE with Cyclops-S.or c.Lp,C.Hp, (call Cyclops) Super jump,Lk,Mk,(optic bullet hits) Doll.

ASSISTED CURSE INFINITE with Sent assist-(drones)-call drones, jump, Lk, Mk, Hk, (drones hit) Doll. (works only when u have them cursed)

ASSISTED CURSE INFINITE with Sent assist-(Rp)- Pyramid Smash (d/f anykick), C.Lk, S.MK (call sent) Tiger knee doll, Sent rp hits then doll. 5 hits here. Normal jump, call sent (rp) Lk, Doll. 3 hits. Repeat the 3 hit combo.

Anakaris_Curse made a video showcasing the various Curse loops here. Note that Sonson-Y and Dhalsim-Y are generally the best options, but you can make it worth with a lot of assists.

Strategies

Most commonly Anakaris is paired with a good anti-air assist (IM is popular). This is both because he is desperate for space, not only that but he has the semi-infinite involving his Curse attack and certain assists (Like IM-b or Spiral-g).

Anakaris is rather hard to learn since he is very different from the rest of the characters by having a rather unorthodox fighting style.To top it off, he is slow and takes damage as bad as Strider. Having a 300% combo can make it all worth it tho. Not to mention his coffin super is extremely powerful (when mashed right).

To mash his super coffin (in air): mashing rh and mash clockwise (rh,short,jab,fierce,rh,short,jab,fierce).

Ground super coffin: Use the scratch method. Put your index finger over the jab or short, the middle finger over fierce or rh and scratch at the buttons so you always have 2 out, but the punch one is a hair faster than the kick ones.

The best Anakaris player I know of is Anakaris_Curse a.k.a Gabe. The only AAA he use is Sonson and he usually uses Storm or Tron. Viscant prefers Cyke and I can't blame him (Sonson is low tier).

Best Anakaris teams are usually the following: Anakaris/Sent-Y/Cyclops-b | Anakaris/storm-b/Cyclops-b | Anakaris/storm-b/sonson-AAA(Gabe team) | Anakaris/storm-b/sent-y | Anakaris/cable/cyke-AAA(viscant team)
