Jax has an effective and deadly set of style moves, super moves and pro moves that make him a real force, with the ability to do large damage at any range. He's deadly at long range with Gun Runner and Rocket Blast and up close with Power Fist, Blinding Light, and Gotcha Grab, he makes an impression

    Super moves

    • Gun Runner -- left, left, attack 1 -- maximum damage 9% -- This attack is a fast medium range projectile attack that hits immediately when the sub-machine gun starts firing. Use this attack after Jax scores a Knockdown or Pop-up, while his opponent is attempting to stand up.
    • Power Fist -- down, left, attack 2 -- maximum damage 8% and Knockdown -- Use this quick overhead windmill attack at the end of Jax's combos to add insane damage, then follow it up with additional damage using Major Muscle and Outranked pro moves and the fight could be over.
    • Blinding Light -- down, left, attack 1 -- maximum damage 8% -- Use this attack to keep Jax's opponent at distance by temporarily staggering him and knocking him back, and then follow up with Gun Runner or Majority Rules.
    • Rocket Blast -- down, left, attack 3 -- maximum damage 7% -- This is Jax's second projectile attack and is a huge rocket that can be fired twice using Majority Rules pro move. It isn't a fast attack and is only really good to keep opponents hopping and against mid-air attacks.
    • Gotcha Grab -- right, right, attack 2 -- maximum damage 12-18 percent --Jax will grab his opponent by the head and deliver a number of blows to his head, tap attack 2 repeatedly to throw additional punches, and use it at the end of Jax's combos for amazing damage.
    • Ground Pound -- down, down, attack 4 -- maximum damage 8% and Knockdown -- This attack will knockdown opponents at any range, follow up with Gun Runner as soon as you hit the ground and Jax will catch mid-range opponents for extra damage.

    Pro moves

    • Majority Rules -- down, left, attack 3, down, left, attack 4 -- Do the second attack just as the first rocket appears on screen and Jax will quickly fire a second rocket and catch his opponent off guard.
    • Outranked -- down, left, attack 2, attack 3 -- This nice attack is fast and can do up to 18% damage, just tap attack 3 when your opponent hits the ground and Jax will stomp on him.
    • Major Muscle -- down, left, attack 2, attack 1, right + attack 2 -- This is a tricky move to pull off, but fun to practice. Hit attack 1 as your opponent hits the ground, them quickly press right + attack 2 to combo into a Gotcha Grab that do up to 28% damage.
    • Man vs Machine -- Jax pulls out the machine fun after the Ground Pound super move and catches him falling backwards; make sure you do the second attack, just as Ground Pound lands.

    Finishing moves

    • Fatality 1 -- left, right, right, left, attack 2 (close range) -- Time for Jax to squeeze his opponents head like a bug
    • Fatality 2 -- right, right, left, left, attack 3 (close range) -- Jax says hello with his machine gun
