Story

Enkidu's tireless pursuit of martial arts perfection leads him to combat with ever-stronger opponents.

After tiring of fighting mere humans, he began challenging In-Births.
Even given their supernatural prowess, only a handful of In-Births stood a chance against Enkidu; he even managed to defeat Paradox, who was considered the strongest of them all.
Just when it seemed Enkidu had lost sight of his purpose, his gaze fell on a single target: the Re-Birth Kuon the Aeon.
Then a man appeared before Enkidu and told him, ""If you join me, I can introduce you to the Aeon...""

Thus begins Enkidu's final battle.

In the grand scheme of things,
special powers don't matter much.
The strong will win. The weak will not.

Gameplay

Enkidu is an unconventional mid-range footises-oriented character who struggles profoundly with closing in, but can put the rest of the cast to shame with his potential damage against a cornered opponent. He lacks projectiles, meterless reversals, full-screen normals, unreactable or vortexing mixups, and high-mobility specials, but in exchange, has access to great counterhit fishing, some rather crafty hurtbox shifting, and astounding corner damage.

Owing to his generally anemic neutral game and unsafe pokes, paired with his high damage output and conversion potential, much of Enkidu’s game plan relies on making fewer mistakes than the opponent and extending advantageous situations. This character is for people that wish to be challenged in the realm of decision making, rather than in terms of their execution or raw game knowledge.

Overall, Enkidu is best described as a high-damage character who can struggle to compensate for his somewhat difficult and linear neutral game.


Strengths Weaknesses
  • Good Damage And Demonic Corner Pressure: Enkidu has a lot of chargeable normals and specials that let him stagger very hard and can cancel recovery on normals into parry later than he can stagger regularly.
  • Havoc: His unique trait, Havoc, makes whiffing any move against Enkidu unideal at best, terrifying at worst. This combined with his good mid-range presence makes for an opponent that is very scared to do anything aside from block, which Enkidu can very easily abuse.
  • Strong Call-Outs and Metered Reversal: Parry can punish opponents who mash out of blockstun, and keep otherwise easy punishes in check. The A version also acts as a meterless reversal due to CS giving it frame 1 startup. 6FF is a new addition that also more aggressively punishes your opponent for trying to contest your mid-range. 4C is a classic button that pulls your hurtbox back and punishes projectiles, jump-ins, and poorly spaced normals.
  • Strong Anti-Projectile Options: Enkidu has access to numerous moves that have anti-projectile or guard point properties such as 4C, 3C/3[C], 236C, 214X, and 6FF/6[FF].
  • Poor Neutral Outside of Mid-Range: Enkidu is forced to play a slow and steady neutral game via dash blocking, and in general does not have ways to pressure without being up-close.
  • Weak to Whiff-Punishes: Enkidu’s normals have high recovery in general, meaning he has to take higher risks when throwing them out in neutral or when trying to mash out of pressure.
  • Limited Defense Without Meter: Enkidu does not have meterless reversal options without access to CS. Enkidu also has no 5f normal, as both 5A and 2A have 6f startup which weaken his opportunities for mashing out or punishing certain moves.

Unique Trait
  • Havoc - Enkidu's attacks gain additional damage and 9 additional frames of hitstun when they connect with an opponent in a recovery state (not necessarily just counter hits).
    • Havoc does not activate off Enkidu's A normals or throws.
    • Rekka inputs will re-apply Havoc bonus damage. For example: 5CCC would apply it thrice, as would the 236X rekka series. 5BBB will only apply Havoc bonus damage on the initial 5B, but additional meter generation and hitstun remain.
    • This bonus damage is dealt as damage over time and cannot kill.
Vorpal Trait
  • Havoc applies an additional 6 frames of hitstun.

Enkidu brings his hands forward to create a pulse of energy in front of him.
  • One of Enkidu's best moves due to its incredible utility. Anti-air, anti-mash, anti-projectile, it does it all.
    • Useful anti-air attack due to the high vertical hitbox and head-invulnerability.
    • Enkidu's hurtbox is retracted very early in the animation, letting him beat many stubby normals.
    • Crumples on hit. Combined with Havoc, trading with 4C can easily net Enkidu a full combo.
    • Deletes single hit projectiles.
    • Enkidu can special cancel after nullifying a projectile.
  • 4[C] can delete multi-hit projectiles and, with proper timing, multiple projectiles (Akatsuki's 236C)

Enkidu rolls forward, plants one hand on the ground, and does a handstand kick.
  • A very solid anti-air attack, though the angle does not cover everything.
  • 3C is useful as a launcher in combos.
  • 3[C] has Enkidu roll a greater distance before kicking. It can also be cancelled into any EX or CS from the increase effect until the kick comes out. This has numerous applications such as letting him roll toward his opponent and cancel into an EX.
    • The roll is projectile-invulnerable until the kick, making it an effective anti-zoning tool. Can be CS canceled before the kick comes out to close the gap and stay safe.

Enkidu does a forward moving elbow strike. Both versions have guard point until the first active frame that will absorb any non-throw hit . This option lets him blow through his opponent's strikes or projectiles and is an aggressive alternative to his 214X parry.
  • 6FF gains guard point on frame 7 until first active frame. Will crumple grounded opponents on hit leading to a combo. On hit or block you can only cancel into 214A/B or CS.
  • Opponents cannot cancel when making contact with the guard point with the exception of projectile/object property moves (ex. Chaos's Azhi attacks). The hitstop duration experienced by the opponent when they make contact using strike based moves prevents them from cancelling until 6FF is active.

  • Opponents may cancel their attack with any on hit option when making contact with the guard point as long as it is between frame 13-31. Attacks that make contact after frame 32 will not be able to be cancelled in time due to the hitstop with the exceptions of projectile/object based moves.

Overall, rekkas serve as a useful tool to continue Enkidu's stagger pressure with good mind game potential, and are the go-to combo ender in most cases.

A fast, fearsome stomp that creates a pillar of energy.
  • 22A has modest combo utility.
    • Mainly used in pressure to create gapless strings when the opponent has CS.
  • 22B is slower, but stronger and more useful.
    • Very useful to create a 4f gap and frame trap after 6C/4C/2[C].
  • 22[B] provides significant frame advantage, but with significant startup.
  • 22C is arguably the highest utility move in Enkidu's entire kit.
    • Canceling into this can render all of Enkidu's pressure safe.
    • Unlike 22A/B, it also has a significant anti-air hitbox.

EX Command Grab. This is techable similar to Waldstein's B command grab. Against a shielding opponent it will become untechable and break their shield. On successful hit, it will wall bounce the opponent anywhere on screen giving an opportunity to get a full combo or as a combo extension. Pairs well with his 3[C] which lets him roll toward his opponent and cancel into 360C during the roll animation to grab his opponent by surprise.
  • Techable when not used in a combo or as a punish.
  • Not recommended for use by beginners who are not experienced with predicting or reacting to shields. The cost of your opponent teching the throw is a loss of 100 meter, net difference of 4 GRD blocks, and giving your opponent frame advantage which can easily snowball into losing the round.

Enkidu charges up his EXS energy and reaches forward to forcefully channel it all into his opponent. If there's nothing in reach, he releases it all like a fireball.

  • Frame advantage is from blocking the first hit only.
  • If Enkidu connects up close, the IW will play out in full. Otherwise, he launches an energy mass that cannot be avoided with projectile-invulnerable moves.
  • If the fireball connects, Enkidu has time to combo off of the wall bounce.
  • Close-up version of IW is air unblockable as of CLR.
