Amaterasu's official artwork


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.


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

Special Moves

  • Power Slash=Qcb.gifAtk.png: 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.


  • Ōkami Shuffle= Qcf.gifAtk.pngAtk.png Elements for shorthand. Hits fullscreen and deals pretty good chip. Instant in air, and may possibly be the new Hailstorm. Prime for DHC/KFC.
  • Mist=Qcb.gifAtk.pngAtk.png 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.
  • Lvl 3= F,d,df.gifAtk.pngAtk.png Ammy takes all of her Lvl 5 Celestial Weapons and bitch slaps the opponent (simply put) Shown in the Gamescom video


  • α: Solar Flare= Amaterasu’s counter which ends in a SPD
  • β: Cold Star= Revision of the infamous Ice Shots of the SDCC Build. Was changed to being shot down-forward in the TGS Bild because ground shots were OP
  • γ: Bloom= Builds meter
