Kano

MK9-Kano Face.jpg

Undisciplined and dangerous, Kano is a thug for hire. From weapons dealing to cold-blooded murder, his military training has made him the go-to man for the Black Dragon. But when an operation went to hell and his face horribly mutilated, Kano's crime spree was almost ended. Ever the survivor, he used his underworld connections to find a cyberneticist capable of repairing the damage. Kano was fitted with several high-tech enhancements, most notably his eye laser. With these new weapons, Kano's reign of terror has only just begun.

Special Attacks

Knife Throw

Kano's main weapon. It starts up and recovers very fast, making it a excellent zone tool. A good tactic to use is to toss knifes, walk back, toss knifes x repeat. Its so fast the opponent has to guess.


Ball

Punishable on block. Upball is good for anti air. Straight Ball can punish opponents jumping forward, especially when they try to jump your knifes.


Choke

When you use choke on block, it pushes your opponent back and can be used to cancel all combo strings to get space and avoid retaliation.
