Move list
Anvil Stiles
Slide (Forward, Forward, C)
Knife toss (Down, Forward, A)
Disappear (Back, Forward, RS)
Grenade (Down, Back, C)
Note: Anvil is a special character in the sense that he can float in the air by continuously pressing Up. This way, he can avoid a lot of attacks. The best strategy for winning as Anvil is by constantly sliding into the opponent and uppercutting him. This is very effective in the corners.
Erika Storm
Katana (Back, Forward, C)
Disappear (Back, Forward, RS)
Groundfire (Down, Forward, Back, RS)
Spinstab (RS, Forward, Back)
Note: The best move for Erika is the throw (Back, C). Her sword's reach is so great that she can throw an opponent from afar. With practice, your opponent may be thrown multiple times. Another good move is the sword uppercut. With correct timing, Erika can just wait until an opponent comes near and uppercut the poor soul with her Katana. The groundfire is good when the opponent is in medium range.
Carlos Cortez
Bomb (Back, Forward, C)
Shotgun (Forward ,Forward , C)
Earthquake (Down, Forward, Back, RS)
Note: Carlos' strength lies in his shotgun. Blast away at an opponent from afar and, when he gets near, disappear. For close quarter combat, his uppercut is pretty powerful and, the throw is effective as well. When an opponent is too near, try the knee smash (Back, 'B) repeatedly. Do not get into an air duel since Carlos does not have any aerial attacks.
Riggs Riddick
Hellfire (Back, Forward, A)
Roll (Forward, Down, Back)
Disappear (Back, Forward, RS)
Ghostly Touch (Forward, Forward, C)
Note: Riggs is convenient in the sense that his disappear is very close to his hellfire. This way, he can blast an opponent from a distance and disappear when the bad guy is too close for comfort. A good combo for Riggs is a flying kick and an uppercut followed by a roll. This is very lethal and does a lot of damage.
Sasha Romanoff
Stealth (Back, Down, C)
Knife (Down, Forward, A)
Slide (Forward, Forward, C)
Crouch Knife (Down, Back, RS)
Note: Sasha is very quick. Her drawback is that when she does get hit, she is slow getting up. Her best non-special move is her air attack. That is, constantly jump over an opponent and press B when you are near/above them. Opponents have a difficult time countering this move and, it creates a lot of damage. Her crouch knife is also effective because it comes in so low that it is almost impossible to defend against.
Gabriella St. John
Cannonball (Forward, Down, Back)
Mesmerize (Forward, Forward, Back, Back)
Fireball (Forward, Forward, C)
Note: Gabriella can fry you with her eyes. Mesmerize is pretty strong, except that it shoots too high and, the range is limited. So, for consistency, use her fireball. It has good distance and the height is just right to fry anyone. Again, she has a good flying kick, uppercut, cannonball combo. Also, her footsweep (Back, 'B) has a longer range than normal. Keep opponents at bay by constantly footsweeping them from a distance.
Groundshake (Down, Forward, Back, RS)
Disappear (Back, Forward, RS)
Slide (Forward, Forward, C)
Knife (Down, Forward, A)
Grenade (Down, Back, C)
Note: Viper is the most complete and balanced fighter. He has all the necessary moves. He is cat quick and has an array of deadly combos. He can "juggle" opponents fairly easily. Flying kick an opponent then, while he is still in mid-air, give him a couple of high kicks, then finish him off with an uppercut. Another effective combo is slide, slide, uppercut and throw.
