    Basic Tips & Recommended Attacks

    Aquaman doesn’t have an abundance of abilities, but those he does have are extremely effective. In many ways, Aquaman is a powerhouse fighter.

    Water of Life (Character Power): Similar to other characters with shields, this ability allows Aquaman to take an attack without knock-back or stagger.

    Trident Rush / Trident Scoop: Scoop is a nice launch, while Rush is a fast special that strings several strikes into one easy attack. Great for almost any situation, and fast.

    From the Deep / Trident Toss: Aquaman’s ranged game isn’t too bad either. Throwing the trident with Toss forces opponents to either block and stand still or jump. From the Deep is a very Mortal Kombat-eque power that will launch opponents caught by the spears at their feet.

    Water Shield: A unique special that will actually absorb attacks while active. It can be held, and it’s a good way to block incoming combos that you can then interrupt and follow-up with your own.

    Seven Seas / Aquatic Ace (Combo): A quick (high) start puts Aquaman in a good position to lay on some damage. Beware, a crouched opponent can ruin your day here.

    Deep Sea (Combo): This awesome low combo transitions into a grapple. Use it often, and after every combo or special attack.

    VS The Flash

    Welcome to Atlantis! This stage offers a few useful hazards. Enemies pressed to the glass can be launched with [Back+Hard], and the globes are good weapons for Aquaman to use in a pinch. Flash doesn’t have super strength, so use his disadvantage to your advantage.

    Like his name suggests, Flash is fast. He’s an acrobatic opponent that will bridge the gap and try to punish you with some fast combos. Play it safe and try to use combos that use a light attack as an opener, as they’re the fastest.

    Watch out for Flash’s diagonal strikes from below or above. You’ll want Aquaman to keep his feet on the ground for this fight.

    If you’re feeling cheap, use Aquaman’s Trident Rush whenever Flash steps close to stick the AI in a loop.

    VS Shazam

    Similar to Superman, Shazam is a powerful guy with a few mean electricity attacks at range. These can be hard to predict, but a standing block will keep you alive.

    This bruiser has a hard time dealing with quick combos like From the Depths and Huzzah. Use them whenever he’s close (and isn’t ducking).

    The lug loves throwing lightning bolts and zipping across the screen to grapple. Use his relatively slower speed against him, jump in and work him over with fast combos.

    VS Aquaman

    Learn from your doppelganger, as this battle pits you against Aquaman. He’ll want to use all those handy moves of your’s against you, and combine them with Meter Burn. That makes Aquaman one of the early challenges in the story, and you’ll want to ace those inputs to put an end to him.

    Instead of letting him attack, take advantage of the AI’s relative sluggishness – at this point, it won’t likely block, duck, or counter your attacks. Go nuts – play offensively. Leap into combat with Aquaman’s shield active and hammer your opponent with combos.

    If you’re going to go all out, save your Super Meter. When playing offensively, it’s much more likely that your opponent will attempt a Clash. That means he’ll try to get some health back while escaping your combo. Punish him instead, save your meter and use all of it when he tries to heal.

    The AI also has trouble dealing with Trident Toss and From The Deep. Spam a few of these ranged specials for extra damage.

    VS Ares

    Ares is slow but strong – which makes him an easy target for almost all of Aquaman’s closer range combos.

    Use throw often. It’ll send Ares away, and give you time to shield up if necessary. Otherwise, there’s little reason to fear him. His AI isn’t skilled enough to counter Aquaman’s specials.

    Punish him with Deap Sea, Seven Seas, Huzzah, and whatever else you feel like using. Combine that with throws when he gets close, and throw in some From the Deeps to keep him at bay.

    No character creation mode, bah..
    Even Wrestling games have character creation mode.

    @michael
    Wrestling is technically a sport, so the introduction of new characters (hence, create a wrestler) is plausible. Injustice is a licensed franchise from DC and they would never allow a create-a-fighter option.

    @Theghost
    But doing it in DC Universe online its ok right?

    I’m just saying that I believe we have to break this barrier in gaming. I’m Hispanic and I wont buy this game or any fighting game that does not implement a character customization option. I don think its worth a 60 dollar price tag on something I can finish in a day without it having replay value. I mean there isn’t even an Asian superhero for crying out loud. Not to mention the1 token black guy.

    I for one love games so much that these industries don’t care about catering to the player and that’s the reason no one is buying there games. Then they start whining that they didn’t hit there sales mark because they believe people are pirating. No its because they cater to one demographic.

    While I appreciate the Character Game Guide (very useful)
    I would prefer the guide to be in the format that you used for Mortal Kombat
    ie One use a universal Key 1,2,3,4 for the buttons (or atleast make some sort of key so that we can id the difference between the X-Box 360 and PS3 versions) and
    secondly
    Apart from just speaking out what you are inputting can you also write the combo down (just like you did in the MK Videos) That may be a lot easier for certain people (it certainly was for me) instead of trying to strain their eyes on what is on the side screen (ie the small display of buttons input display)

    I hope that I haven’t offended anyone with any of my comments and I am wondering if you are going to put up anymore videos of characters in the future. Also please show Enhanced Versions of the Super Moves and can you also tell what are the Strengths and Weakness of a character. Ie Lex Luthor may be a strong character but has slow speed but doesn’t have that many combos etc… and who a said character has an advantage against and who he is weakened/disadvantage against.

    I hope that you consider my suggestions and don’t consider my post as Spam even though it is in my name. :)

    My Bad I carefully noted your videos after a couple of watching so I can now see the button display for the combos though a universal key might be a bit easier, it is still better than nothing.

    Would like a lex luthor video as well.
    Also the other suggestions though please consider them
