Amaterasu's official artwork

Introduction

Amaterasu is a Capcom character hailing from the cult classic hit, Ōkami. The MvC3 team seems to have stayed true to her techniques in Ōkami. Implementing many of her weapons, and tools seems to have created an extremely interesting character. The Ōkami version of Amaterasu is the wolf incarnation of the Sun Goddess. She uses her power to restore peace and beauty to the lands.

Colors

All of Amaterasu's colors represent a Canine Warrior from Ōkami.

Special Moves

Qcb.gif + Atk.png - Power Slash | The Power Slash brush technique has found its way to MvC3. It is also an overhead. Depending on the strength it can reach different heights.

  • L.png - Low/Far
  • M.png - Mid/Mid
  • H.png - High/Close

As you can see there are both vertical and horizontal differences in the different strengths of the stroke. To get a better understanding of the strengths, it works like a descending slope with H.png being at the top, L.png at the bottom, and M.png in between the two. The H.png stroke not only works as a good anti-air, but it helps keep your opponent grounded since the strokes spends a bit of time floating in the air while Ammy is free to do whatever. It can provide crossups upon wakeup, due to being an overhead, and aid her overall mixup game.


Qcf.gif + Atk.pngAirokay.png - Head Charge | This attack is also air enabled and directional (in the air at least) depending on the button pushed. In the air, it's:

  • L.png - Straight
  • M.png - Diagonal Down
  • H.png - Straight Down

Only available in Reflector, and Glaive stance.


F,d,df.gif + Atk.png - Solar Flare | If one was to attack during the reflector's animation it will result in an unblockable SPD (spinning pile driver) As shown in her intro vid. Only available in Reflector stance. Depending on the strength the reflector changes colors.

  • L.png: Orange
  • M.png: Purple
  • H.png: Green

Each color has different properties


Qcf.gif + Atk.png - Cold Star | Mash for multiple hits. Only available in Rosary stance. Ammy shoots Ice Shots at opponent. Great for locking down others. Apparently beats other projectiles, so it is ideal for giving yourself some breathing space. Different buttons have different properties.

  • L.png: for ground shots
  • M.png: for AA version
  • H.png: for the Assist jumping version


D.pngD.png + Atk.png - Change Weapon | As stated before, Amaterasu has retained many of her weapons from Ōkami in the realm of MvC3. Many who have played Ōkami can instantly recognize the Reflector, Glaive, and Rosary weapons. The reflector (in this case Solar Flare) seems to be at the start of all matches Weapons can be changed with D.pngD.pngL.png, M.png, or H.png (for desired item) and upon switching normals(H.png normals in particular) and special moves are changed.

  • L.png: Reflector
  • M.png: Glaive
  • H.png: Rosary

Hypers

Qcf.gif + Atk.pngAtk.png Airokay.png - Ōkami Shuffle (Level 1) | Elements for shorthand. Hits fullscreen and deals pretty good chip. Instant in air, and may possibly be the new Hailstorm. Prime for DHC/KFC.

Qcb.gif + Atk.pngAtk.png Airokay.png - Vale of Mist (Level 1) | Encases the entire field with the Mist Brush technique. Though the entire field is put into slow motion, Ammy cannot build meter during this time.

F,d,df.gif + Atk.pngAtk.png - ??? (Level 3) | Ammy takes all of her Lvl 5 Celestial Weapons and bitch slaps the opponent (simply put) Shown in the Gamescom video
