An unnamed fighter of ancient martial arts. So feared was he for his ferocity and strength that soon many erased his very existence from their minds. With no one left to face, he sought to test his mettle against those holding powers beyond mortals, the In-Births. He offers his arm to a Void, but his well-trained muscles prevent the fangs of the Void to penetrate fully, thereby leading to only a vague manifestation of power. Despite this, he continues to seek challengers under the Hollow Night, until one day, a woman appears in front of him and promises him the opponents he seeks. With those words, Enkidu's battle begins.
The power manifested within my body is weak.
When at mid-close range Enkidu's footsies are pretty strong, but his tools to get in are fairly lacking. He doesn't have any projectiles or full screen normals like most of the cast, so he has a hard time mounting offense from far away. While his run speed is okay it translates into one of the worst dash blocks in the game, making it hard for Enkidu to gain ground against an opponent who doesn't want him in. Once he gets in Enkidu's mix-up is fairly modest, but his damage is pretty high, especially with the bonus damage he gets from Havoc. Most of the time Enkidu's game plan will be to close in and then pressure by delaying strings to catch mashing and either using normals with strong hitboxes to counterpoke when at minor disadvantage or by using his counters to make the opponent scared to hit buttons. Enkidu is a character that has to play fairly differently depending on the matchup, since which of his normals are especially good and the spacings at which his counter will be effective change drastically depending on the character.
|Forward Walk Speed||Backward Walk Speed||Jump Startup||Jump Duration|
|Dash Startup||Initial Dash Speed||Dash Acceleration||Max Dash Speed|
|Backdash Startup||Backdash Duration||Backdash Distance||Backdash Invul|
- Havoc: Whenever Enkidu hits an opponent during an attack, the opponent takes some damage over a short time along with having additional hitstun.
- This effectively acts as an enhanced counter hit, but it also works against Vatista.
- Havoc hitstun increased
