Thor

Thorface.jpg

In a nutshell

Thor is terrifically slow, but extremely powerful. His combos are short but pack a huge punch, and his command grab starts combos for him. Finding ways to trick your opponent into falling into yet another grab is the key to success with Thor. Being cornered by Thor is the last place you want to be, but he'll have a hard time putting you there without the help of his assists.

Apprentice Combos

Strategy

Tips and Tricks

  • Thor can cancel his crouching Heavy before it hits into his Mighty Hurricane command grab. Doing so, called a 'Kara Cancel', provides him with a massive increase in range.
  • Try to use Mighty Hurricane on opponents as they finish an Air Recovery flip to restart your combo. A great way to do this in the corner is to finish an air combo with Special, land and do a Heavy Mighty Smash. Jump forward right away and input the Mighty Hurricane.
  • Loads of characters can crouch Thor's projectiles, so be careful how you use it. The startup sparks do have a hit area, however, and this move has some use in combos.
