Amaterasu

Umvc3 amaterasu face.jpg

Amaterasu, the sun goddess, lost her physical form defeating the True Orochi. 100 years later she was resurrected in the form of a wolf who now uses her powers to restore beauty to the islands of Japan.


In a nutshell Amaterasu is a very unique and versatile character due to her extensive weapons and swift defense. She is well equiped to force the opponent into a corner through the use of her Thunder Edge and airdash creating situations to increase preasure and extend combos, also with the use of airdash. A new change to the game system in Ultimate prevents blocking while airdashing which leaves her vulnerable to counter attacks. Lastly, Ammy is shorter than many standing attacks leaving the opponent vulnerable to retaliation.

Tips and Tricks

  • While learning Amaterasu, do not be afraid to lose. Take your time learning each weapon separately before trying to combine all of her techniques into one gameplan. Remember to experiment and find out what you can crouch under as one of the shortest characters in the game. The knowledge will add up to a much deadlier character in the future.
  • Play the matchup when using Amaterasu. If your opponent's character is weak to rush down, then rush him down. If he is weak to keep away, keep him out!
  • Be ready for a quick, nearly full screen punish using the Okami Shuffle super.
  • Don't be afraid to slow your opponent's down with the Vale of Mist. Meter gain stops during this, but the damage you get or the escape you make can be invaluable. Try DHCing into this super for a safe switch.
  • The ideal way to switch weapons midcombo is to connect a Down+Heavy then quickly Down+(weapon change button), as opposed to Down+Heavy then Down+Down+(Weapon Change Button). Doing this allows you to continue the combo easier as you are performing one less command input, using the Down+Heavy as one of the Down commands for the weapon change. Here are animated GIFs to visually describe to perform this.
