I actually posted this in the ‘top low-tiers’ thread in General, but I figured I’d repost here to see if anyone who played him had anything to add.
i’ve tried anakaris, but i seriously cannot do anything with him. any strats, combos, something that could possibly catch my eye to use him would be great. and what is this guy’s infinite? i’ve heard he has like a 100% hyper combo or something… this true?
Infinite can be done multiple ways, they all involve assist into Pharoah’s Curse (qcf+k). Cyke-B is the standard: [c.hp + cyke ^ lp,lk,mp,mk XX PC]. Pharoah’s curse doesn’t continue combo counting, so you can use multiple assists and damage doesn’t scale. Also possible with Gambit proj assist, Spiral ground, Zangief Lariat, probably more.
SJ & drop coffins continuously beats a few characters, notably Juggernaut. Coffins stop runaway, too.
Also, you can poke like Dhalsim with his s.hp/s.hk into assist. Once you get a blocked assist, RTSD w/ bootleg triangle jump lp, mp, mk, hp, hk. Depending on character height you might have to leave out the mp,mk. Instant overhead (sj df+lk) is pretty good too in melee range.
Air to air is sick, as you can SJ w/ them and HP Idle hands or hk from long range. Or you can SJ from below them w/ sj.lk which beats most everything above you. Alternately, drop a coffin on them. Or call an air controlling assist like Cyke-B and tigerknee a long range Idle Hands into their landing for a ghetto-fied Sent-style unblockable. You can follow TK Idle Hands by either OTG sj.hp to make them roll out and set up a zone game, Oooooor d.hk to land fast and meaty options as you stand up. If you assist beats theres, mash it out and sj airdash to crossup. Works great w/ Tron-proj but if you use Cyke-B he ends up on the same side as you, and if all blocked, you may get both characters eating beams.
