From Shoryuken Wiki, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Strategy and More!
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.
- 1: Amaterasu
- 2: Gi
- 3: Chu
- 4: Jin
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 being at the top, at the bottom, and in between the two. The 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.
Only available in Reflector, and Glaive stance.
+ - 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.
Each color has different properties
+ - 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.
+ - 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 , , or (for desired item) and upon switching normals( normals in particular) and special moves are changed.
