Body Tosses

Million Leg Lariat - Near opponent, press back or N or forward + C+D

Unique Moves

Mars Slider - Press down-forward + D

Mars People crouches down and swipes his tentacles across the ground, sweeping his opponent off of the floor.

Before in SVC some may remeber this animation as his crouching HK, while for his Mars Slider he performs a sort of low spinning head attack. Both attacks remain the same but their commands are different. Therefore the Mars Slider from SVC is crouching HK and the crouching HK fro MSVC is now performed by pressing down-forward + D.

The Mars Slider best use remains in his bread and butter combo - crouching Ax3, Mars Slider. Quick simple damage and knocks down. It also serves for good punishment against whiffed attacks from afar. With that said you should use this attack with some antcipation due to its slow start-up period. Compared to most sweeps, the Mars Slider is extremly dangerous to be whiffed or blocked. Strangely enough this attack hits twice on a block but you may use this to your advantage. For example you perform crouching A, Mars Slider. The opponent blocks the crouching A and begins to Guard Cancel Front Step. They blow through the first hit only to be sweeped by the second hit. Outside of combos and punishment situations you may use this attack in conjuction to his Mars Shot as a poke. Keep in mind though this attack is highly punishable, even from max range with the right move.

Special Moves

Mars Shot - qcf + A or C

Mars People points and his aims his gun and fires a small particle across the screen.

The A version may have a longer start-up period it travels across the screen faster. While the C version comes out faster to only travel slower. In addition, the A version travels in a straight line and the C version follows a zig-zag like path. The Mars Shot is mainly used as shield to dash behind to enter point blank range or to just pressure your opponent.

Roswell Vanish - rdp + A or C

Mars People explodes into flames, thus teleporting for a brief moment.

In SVC the Roswell Vanish was overly abuseable. Could be used as an anti-air or combo finsiher. The attack had high prioirity and was invincible upon start-up. Not only that, but it was unblockable when used against a waking up opponent. This has all been removed. The range is slim to none. A mere step out of point blank range equals a whiffed Roswell Vanish. Do this drawback it can no longer be used in combos outside of Plasma Spin juggles. The invincibility frames are completely gone. Mars People is not completely invincible until he fully teleports, and is invisible?? AHA! Due to the poor priority you will almost always trade hits with this special move. Another note is the command. In SVC, the command input wat hcb + K, but this slight change did not change anything. Besides that is the fact that the C version teleports Mars People forward and behind his opponent. Before in SVC, he would teleport and reappear further away from his opponent.

Plasma Abduction - Near opponent, hcb + A or C

Mars People grabs his opponent, slowly levitating his opponent into the air he reaches for a remote. Upon pressing a switch on the remote, electricity surges through the opponent's body.
