Onsluaght strategies

Galactus has nothing on him! So relentless!

So I have been trying to beat him for a while now but the second he turns into his second stage I can't seem to get a hit on him. Tips anyone? I don't mind changing team but I'm currently using Ryu/Wolverine

Mr Rippe's Gamercard
Took me a bunch of tries, but I finally beat him with Jin and War Machine. Play defensive with Jin on phase 1, use Bloodia Punch if you must. When you get to phase 2, War Machine's War Destroyer kicks ass. It's an aerial attack that hits while going up (if he's right above you) and coming down (relatively homed in on his position). War Machine's shoulder cannon is also pretty good to play if he's on the other side of the stage.

For a helper character, I used Iceman. He drops ice on screen. If Onslaught is right on top of you, it'll hit. Thor also works in this situation.

It's also worth restating that it took me a LOT of tries. Onslaught was designed to be insanely unfair. After all, it was a Quarter muncher back in the day. I probably would have spent $15 in Quarters getting to and beating Onslaught. I got so close a bunch of times before I got him.

Good luck!

I used Wolverine/Hulk. I used low, quick combos with Wolverine on the first part and once he died I was able to use Hulk's hypers to do a lot of damage to the head and jumping Fierce punches to finish him off. Bear in mind, on Onslaught's second stage, you have to hit him in the head to cause damage. On a more general note, patience, blocking, and quick dashing are essential for staying alive long enough to get the hypers off.

Just assault him with a your assist plus fierce attacks. Chun Li owns first form of Onlsaught for free, just keep mashing Forward+Fierce Punch, literally nothing he can do.

I just stuck with Ryu and Hulk. On the first round, I crouch with Ryu while blocking attacks, when Onslaught gets close, jab him in-between attacks, and during attacks that can't reach you. On the 2nd round, I just keep hitting his head with Hyper Combos in the air (Shinkuu Hadouken) and Hulk's fist attacks. It helped me win the no-round-loss achievement.

This helped me a lot. Zangief and then Mega Man in the back. As long as I can get to second phase I can beat him making it easier for the beat with X person with that forward FP killing him

Not started this yet but is the Forward + FP the written in the sands approach to beating every time? There are usually spam methods of beating bosses in these games hopefully F+FP is the way so even noobs like me can do it.
