Arthur Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Moves, Combos, Strategy Guide

Character Overview
This guide is not complete, please check back for new information over time.

Special Moves

Dagger Toss



Arthur's standard fireball/projectile attack. By pressing the button multiple times, you can throw up to three daggers at once.

Take advantage of Arthur's floaty jump to throw these daggers, as this will cover a lot of air space forcing the opponent to jump or teleport. You'll recover right as you hit the ground, ready to counter the opponent's next movement.

Be mindful of how many you throw though. It might be tempting to throw as many daggers as you can every time, but this leaves you the most vulnerable to attack.

During King's Armor, the daggers come out much faster

Lance Toss



Arthur's Lance Toss is mainly used to win projectile wars. It has high durability, allowing it to burn through many standard projectiles. Just like Dagger Toss, you can press the button twice to throw two lances.

The slow startup is a hindrance against fast projectile such as Magneto's Disruptor, so you'll need to pick and choose your projectile battles.

Other notable parts of this move include its range, chip and speed. Once you get past the slow startup, these are actually fairly tricky to avoid, especially if they are thrown in the air.

Scatter Crossbow



This move has really fast startup, but terrible tracking ability. If the opponent is around half screen or farther and moving, it's really easy for them to dodge this move.

You'll want to avoid using this attack unless you're fighting a slow character.

The Goddess Bracelet looks like a good Hyper move.

Can't wait to try him out.

Your comment is a waste of a slot!

Arthur looks interesting to say the least. Going to take some time adjusting to his jumping and his seemingly projectile-centric gameplan

(Clack go away, one of his supers is a frikkin' fullscreen dragon!)

@#3 Sorry bro, Arthur has no air dash -- he gets a double jump.

Paji said on February 4, 2011 at 8:45 a.m.

#8 That makes no sense, it's not like he can do all the moves at the same time.

@8 Oh please, Dante has ten times more moves than this guy.

I'm glad to see Arthur. I was never into Ghosts n Goblins, but I know alot of people who are. I think he looks like one of the hardest to master because of his 100% pure keep away style and his limited mobility. I'll probably play as Arthur every once in a while.

i think i found out how is armor falls off i think it happens when he gets hit when he is using the golden armor ultra. the ultra is self looks like it makes him a lot stronger and faster and if you get hit it makes your defense goes way down

Wishpig said on February 9, 2011 at 8:55 a.m.

Alrighty so now we know for certain how his armor falls off.

His golden armor comes with a major drawback... in the form of a timer.

When you pull out the golden armor you're beefed up for a period of time, but it has a limited time attached to it, once that time runs out it gets knocked off and you're in your boxers... and take a ton more damage.

Sounds like Golden armor is something you want to pull out towards the end and shy away from at the start.
