AOF2 Jack Illustration.jpg


Jack is one of Mr. Big's highest ranked men. He runs his own gang called the Neo Black Cats, and hangs frequently at bars around South Town. He has formed rivalries with many of the underground thugs crawling in South Town, and even has beef with King. After his defeat from Ryo and Robert in AOF1, Jack continued to lead his gang, until he was invited to the King of Fighters tournament.

  • Jack slams the opponent to the ground then spins on them on his head

Important Character-Specific Tech

Due to the fact that there are no reversals in this game, doing tick throws into command grab is an inescapable set-up, and Jack's key goal. Jack also has more health (or just takes less damage in game, can't tell at the moment), meaning he takes more hits to kill compared to the rest of the cast.

Strengths And Weaknesses

Jack only wants one thing. He wants to push you into the corner, get in, Jack is the epitome of grappler, slow as hell, but built like a tank, with the damage output of one too.

Strengths: Jack has great normals, has extra health, and inescapable command grab tick throws. A single jump-in can shift the entire tide of the match. His desperation attack is insanely simple to pull off as well, meaning a single screw up can win you the entire match, even with one pixel of health left.

Weaknesses: Jack is slow, and if he can't get in, he's stuck eating chip damage and footsies pokes. He also takes longer to get up from knockdown compared to the rest of the cast, meaning your opponent can escape the corner if they knock you down. If Jack doesn't have meter, he also has little damage output, causing him to be very meter dependent, giving the opponent time to move while you're forced to charge.
