How to Unlock
This character is available from the start.
Captain America is a defensive rushdown character. With great mobility and priority, Captain America can easily interrupt and frustrate other character's strategies. Despite his lack of versatility in all fields, what the Captain is well versatile in is his small and effective moveset, making him great to pick up for new players who can make use of anything in his limited skillset compared to others. His moveset includes a mix of quick and long normal attacks and specials that allow him to defend against a wide range of attacks, making him very easy to use, and is very simplistic in his brute force.
He can zone opponents decently using his Shield Slash to keep a safe distance and use it as an advantage to get in close combat, where he can unleash fast combos. His damage output is also packs great results from having some simple standard-type advanced combos. His Charging Star is one of the few anti-projectile attacks in the game, and could block ANY projectile be it a multitude of them or even beams, including Hyper Combos. Though sadly, the move was somewhat too slow to be of any quick use. Also, the Captain's priority is more so decent only with is shield on; without his shield (via losing it from a Shield Slash missing and the Cap moving away from it), his normals are altered, but possibly easier to punish. This tends to make his Shield Slash a risky move in itself.
Unlike most characters in past vs. Capcom games, the Captain is one of the few who can double jump.
