Characters that are BFF


#1

So, which pair of characters are known as best friends forever? The common ones I know (and I usually fear):

-Magneto/Sentinel
-Wolverine/Akuma
-Zero/Dante
-Wesker/Strider
-Doom/Strider
-Doom/Amaterasu
-Morrigan/Doom

So many Doom ones…


#2

Viper/Dante
Viper/Strider
Dorm/Doom
Dorm/Shuma
Morrigan/Vergil (mainly because Morrigan builds meter well + best meter building assist and they’re both insane with meter)
Morrigan/Dante (IMO her other best assist, helps her play more rushdown centric, Dante loves the meter for DT also)
Iron Man/Sentinel
X-23/Iron Man
Dante/Strider
Dante/Iron Man
Dante/Magneto
Felicia/Dante
Felicia/Strider
Strider/Magneto
Strange/Dante
Strange/Ammy


#3

There was a thread for the best shells before… but I’m always up for a discussion lol.

HULK/DRONES
Nova/Sentinel
Nova/Doctor Strange
Nova/Spencer
Iron Fist/Spencer
Trish/Frank West
Nova/Frank West
Spencer/Frank West
Super Skrull/Frank West
Tron/Frank West
Vergil/Frank West
Vergil/Strider
Vergil/Amaterasu
Captain America/Sentinel
Captain America/Iron Man
Captain America/Akuma
Captain America/Doctor Doom
Wolverine/Doctor Doom

Some pairings are becoming popular while some are known to those who use the particular character.

People don’t use those two enough, I see too many Nova/Frank or Skrull/Frank.


#8

nobody mention frank/dante yet?<br><br>the level of derp dante offers frank is too good to pass up.<br>


#9

Frank/Dante is a really good shell. But I think the problem is that you’d have to use Frank West on point, which isn’t the most viable thing in the game. And as he has such a great assist people may have him on the back end off their team, or second, and would probably have an anchor other than Dante on their team.

Not trying to be pedantic, but I took Frank/Dante to mean that was the order they were to be played in, which is I talked about Frank being on point with Dante as an assist. I’ve played Don D at Winner Stays On  too lol, so I was aware of levelling up Frank that way, first hand, losing 1-3 to it.<br><br>I ain’t salty though.

Hmm? Thats not true, you can hard tag in Frank off of sky dance ground bounce and take a pic. <br>

Lol again, people keep missing where I was coming from  X_X  lol.<br><br>When I was saying Frank West/Dante… I took the order the characters were mentioned in to be the order we would use them bffs, so with Frank West being used first or on point with Dante as the assist. I wouldn’t have had a problem if it was put as ‘Dante/Frank West’, (though Frank West can level up with the team hyper combo and just take pics while million dollars is hitting). I’m not saying it isn’t possible to use Frank West on point with Dante as the assist,. I just think it’d be much harder to use them in </span><b>in that particular order</b>.<br><br>It’s like when we mentioned Captain America/Doctor Doom. I assumed this implied Captain America being on point with Doom (hidden missiles) assist because of the TOD off the relaunch, and that’ their optimal order. If it were put as Doctor Doom/Captain America, I would have assumed Doctor Doom being used with a Captain America assist, which isn’t good.

I play the Strange/Doom duo and is also very synergetic. Any Doom assist is good for Strange, specially missiles (Strange with missiles can extend combos, create teleport mixups and zone meterless, even better than Dorm). Doom DHC well into Sphere Flame after a combo with Strange’s Spell of Vishanti. Strange’s Bolts and Eye are very good for Doom on rushing down or for incoming mixups, respectively.<div>Strange’s bolts is basically good for any character that can across the screen quickly (Magneto, Nova, Spencer, Spider-Man), for teleporters (Vergil, Dante, Dormammu) and for zoning and pressure (V. Joe, Hulk, Captain America, Doom, Hawkeye).</div>
