Annie is a combo machine, with a wealth of tools available to keep her combos going longer than many characters would dare to dream. With a little help from her parasite Sagan she also has access to several long range tools that can pin opponents in place and let Annie get back into close range where she really shines.

Annie's Character Ability (Star Power) is indicated by a big circular star button on the left side of the screen. During a fight, this Star Power button will fill up at a steady rate even while Annie is not the active Fighter. Once it's at least 50% full, tapping the button will activate Star Power mode, which unlocks Annie's true potential as a character and gives her several significant boosts while it's active.

During Star Power mode, Annie's normal attacks now shoot stars which can seriously rack up her combo counter, add extra damage to her basic combos and allow her to extend combos that otherwise would be impossible. They also have a unique property: the stars do the same damage regardless if the opponent blocks them or not. Furthermore, Annie's basic throw and most of her special moves are upgraded, usually to allow longer, more elaborate combos.

Character Background

To all appearances, Annie is a young television actress and the host of “Annie Of The Stars,” a TV variety show based on the myths, legends, and folklore of the titular character. The show has been on the air for years, mixing live-action and animation with multiple actresses playing the lead role.

At least... that’s what Annie wants you to believe! In truth, there has only ever been one Annie. Cursed by the Skull Heart to never grow up, Annie has been alive for centuries. Over that time, she’s made it her personal quest to stop The Skull Heart once and for all. To that end, she has acquired numerous skills and items, including her remote parasite, Sagan. Even performing on television works to further her goals as she hopes to educate the world about the dangers of The Skull Heart.

Fiercer than she looks, braver than anyone, it’s ANNIE OF THE STARS!
