Gambit Introduction

I don't read comics much, but I know that Gambit is a former thief, now member 
of the X-Men.  He can charge objects with kinetic energy and use them as 
weapons.  He made his first appearance in X-Men vs Street Fighter, and has also 
appeared in both Marvel vs Capcom games.  He's a powerful fighter and has a 
certain style about him, that makes him lots of fun to play.

Legend (all moves assume character is facing right)  Throughout this FAQ, I'm 
going to assume that you are at least somewhat familiar with this game and that 
you now the basics.  If not, I recommend Kmegura's FAQ at gamefaqs.com, as it 
will tell you everything that you would want to know.

Assist Types  For all 3 assist types, Gambit uses the Royal Flush as a Super 
Assist.  This is a powerful super, useful in tandem with other beam supers.

Alpha:  Gambit's Assist and Variable Counter is the Kinetic Card.  A helpful 
long range attack, use it anytime.

Beta:  Gambit's Assist and Variable Counter is a Weak Cajun Slash.  Useful as a 
close range surprise move.

Gamma:  Gambit's Assist and Variable Counter is a Crouching HP.  Though this can 
launch the enemy, this isn't very useful due to its range.

I'd recommend using the Alpha Assist Type

Special Attacks

Kinetic Card: d, df, f, P
Gambit Charges up some cards and tosses them at the foe.  Like a fireball, but 
with a twist.  If the opponent is not blocking, they are instantly hit with the 
attack.  You can also do the move in midair, to throw cards downward.

Trick Card d, db, b, P
Gambit Charges up the cards and throws them upward.  This is useful as an anti 
air move, though it can be hard to hit with.  You may want to stick with a 
crouching HP instead.

Cajun Slash: f, d, df, P
Gambit will strike the foe with his staff.  LP produces a short quick strike.  
It has good speed and range, making is a useful surprise move.  HP does a 3 hit 
attack, starting with a quick hopping attack.  This variation is best used as a 
combo ender, since it has a slightly longer start up time.

Cajun Escape:  Charge d, u (or uf or ub) then P followed by P or K
Gambit leaps high into the air.  This is useful to get out of a corner or other 
tough predicaments.

Cajun Strike:  Charge d, u (or uf or ub) then K
Same as the Escape, but Gambit will drop down and strike his foe.  Used in 
conjunction with the Cajun Escape, you can create a tricky pattern to mess up 
your foe.

Super Combos

Royal Flush: d, df, f, PP

Gambit throws his staff up in the air and throws a ton of cards at the enemy.  
Useful as a beam type super.  If you connect, you can do a lot of damage.  The 
staff can hit the foe if they are directly above you.  In general, Gambit's best 

Cajun Explosion d, df, f, (or d, db, b,) KK
Gambit leaps toward the wall.  If he reaches it, he blasts the foe with some big 
cards.  This move is less versatile than the Flush, but does good damage if you 
get it to work.  Remember, you must hit the wall before the move will come out.
