"I will make you a master of the sword. No one is stronger than you... use me and kill!" - Anubis (Anubisu-shin, アヌビス神)

Summary:

Anubis is a minor antagonist featured in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. Despite being a character, however, Anubis takes the form of a spirit that possessed a sword, making the sword the Stand.

It is most effective in close-range combat, as it has a variety of moves that can deal good damage to an opponent when used correctly.

This stand is a part of the Arrow Stand Pool, in which it has a 33% chance (C-Tier percentage) of obtaining from a Stand Arrow.

Appearance:

Anubis appears as an approximate version of the mythological Anubis it's named after Egyptian mythology, with a human body and a jackal head.

It's bound to a thin scimitar with an elaborate, jeweled-encrusted cross-guard complete with a scabbard. However, rather than Anubis itself, only the sword appears in-game, rather than the Anubis God.

For the sword itself, The sword has an angelic look, it has a long grip, following with a long curved blade. Befitting its namesake, Anubis possesses a black lead in both the colored manga and anime. Its headdress is also yellow in both media.

Combos:

In Possessed Mode:

  • LMB + E + R + F Medium
  • R + E + T Medium
  • LMB + C(If needed) + R + F Hard
  • H + E + R + X+LMB
  • X+LMB + C + R + E + C + F Medium/Hard (It is better to keep distance so that you won't get hit)
  • R + F + E Easy/Medium
  • X+LMB+C+F+LMB+LMB+R Medium

In Normal Mode:

  • LMB + LMB + E + LMB Easy
  • E + H Easy (used to get into Possessed mode when not in it.)

Pros

  • Little combo potential but good combos.
  • R-move counters Specs users since they have shorter range.
  • Advantage against most Specs users in general.
  • Jumpy stand that plays around the opponent.
  • Good durability.
  • Dashing distance is further than most abilities in-game.
  • Bypasses counters in Possessed Mode.
  • Sword can move in timestop and after dying and obviously do damage (as long as the key was pressed before timestop/before dying).

Cons

  • T-Move can be dodged easily and is extremely punishable; not worth using at all.
  • No ranged attacks.
  • It is possible for people to hit you while you are holding them on your sword (R move).
  • Can be ragdolled during E and F.
  • Does not have a stand jump to avoid timestop, which forces you to tank up with the block.

Trivia:

  • Anubis received a rework that was shortly reverted. It's moves consisted of a tripping move, a throw move where the victim is thrown upwards, spammable slashing and a short leap.
  • When in normal mode, the hilt of Anubis is wrapped in cloth since when a person directly touches the hilt, they get possessed by Anubis.
  • With the removed Anubis Rework, Anubis gained 1 voiceline which is: "I will take your life."
  • It used to have a quote but this got removed, it was: "Anubis is the strongest stand. Die!", this quote is from JJBA: Heritage for The Future, quoted from Khan's battle intro. The quote played during the R move in Possessed Mode, hence the delay before the strike.
  • It is one of the few stands that can suddenly change their move set, the others being Crazy Diamond, Shadow The World, Gold Experience, Tusk, and Two Arm Doppio King Crimson.
  • This stand is needed for the Samurai quest, the requirement being to deal 2000 damage with the normal mode.
  • In possessed mode, Anubis bypasses counters like the Over Heaven Stands.
  • The E move in Normal Mode does not hit Dummies.
  • The blade has a purple trail following it, similar to The Emperor's bullets.
  • This is one of five stands in the game to not be humanoid, others being DKC, 2ADKC, The Emperor, and Mr. President.
  • Anubis is currently is the only stand to have a right click ability.
