I commonly hear that Ammy has no bad match-up (other than Dark Phoenix; everyone is at a disadvantage here). I think so too. What do you think? List any character that you’ve had trouble with or feel that Ammy is at a disadvantage against.
As an Ammy player myself, this is my opinion on some of the character match-ups (assuming that you aren’t blown-up when coming in and vice- versa):
Wolverine: Eww Logan. I’ve heard from commentators in videos that you should either be in his face or 3/4’s of the screen away. I like that advice. The Solar Flare counter is insane against his rushdown but his “heterosexual life partner” Akuma isn’t far away since you’re most likely to fight Logan on point or in the second spot. Using the counter at the wrong time could mean dead dog. Vale of Mist interferes with his combos pretty well though. The matchup is about 50/50 IMO.
She-Hulk: Like Logan she comes with plenty of friends but unlike Logan, she doesn’t have Berserker Slash. She can’t slide under Cold Star so that helps. Footsies with her isn’t recommended unless Ammy’s foot is QCF+L with the sword. A good match-up for Ammy.
Magneto: He can hit a crouching dog with an overhead! That’s surprising. Not a terrible match-up if you’re on the offensive but it can suck trying to block him. I like me some Solar Flare here to open him up when he’s triangle jumping like crazy.
Dante: I don’t think it’s a bad matchup if you’re in sword. Ammy does have the longest sword in the game after all. Dante’s sword normals kind of beat everything that Reflector Ammy has. If you’re on the defensive, I prefer sitting back until I get the chance to open him up with a Solar Flare counter or a faster normal. I haven’t tested this out but I think the Hammer will trigger the counter if the opposing Dante likes doing that.
Sentinel: Isn’t Ammy infamous for destroying robots? Zoning him out is ridiculously easy and so is punishing his slow normals. Instant overheads just destroy him. Just don’t get hit.
Wesker: A great match-up for Ammy. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe forward gunshot misses Ammy even while standing. That kind of kills his game. He also doesn’t have good air options. Rhino Charge does kinda of kill her though but as long as you aren’t mindlessly rushing him down, that shouldn’t be a problem.
Dark Phoenix: The only bad matchup in my opinion. She does have more options than most of the cast. Random Okami Shuffle could work. Vale of Mist is one of the best ways to run down XF3. XF + Lv. 3 is an option to random her out in the middle of all those feathers. Even then, I don’t think Ammy can get a clean hit on DP easily.
Zero: I keep hearing that this is a bad matchup and that his normals beat Ammy’s. Then the glaive comes out and makes him kiss the ground. If your blocking isn’t up to snuff then I can see why people might think that Zero beats Ammy. I’ve been opened up plenty of times by Zero myself (it’s what he’s good at). It’s not a bad match-up by any means.
Dormammu: This one is actually scary. Once again, not a bad match-up but it’s tough getting in. Between Liberation, Purification and Dark Hole, Dormammu can keep you out. Shooting him isn’t a great idea either since you can get blown up from wherever you’re standing. Flame carpet is annoying. Ammy’s only counter to Stalking Flare is to Okami Shuffle on reaction (unless the ball eats all the durability points on the fire; haven’t seen it myself actually) or hitting him if the player decides to cross you up with the ball. I just try my best to get in at that point or try to make my opponent call the wrong Purification.
If Dormammu is rushing down, it becomes much easier to deal with. I treat him like a slower Magneto at that point. You still have to be careful but at least you aren’t dealing with flame carpet.
Amaterasu: OG Ammy wins hand down.
On a serious note, out of all the top-tier mirrors I’ve seen, Ammy vs. Ammy is the rarest but it’s always fun to watch. I just play the opposite game that the opponent is playing unless they like to f+HHHHH. I show them the counter.
Amaterasu is my favorite character in this game and I might come off a bit biased but these are the experiences I’ve had playing against those characters. I look forward to hearing your opinions.
