Entering Contest of Champions: Jabari Panther

A master huntress, she enjoys nothing more than a good fight.


Chieftain of the long-missing Jabari tribe of Wakanda, Onnange and her tribe have been in hiding following the events between T’Challa and Maestro as they mourn their king. A master huntress who enjoys nothing more than a good fight, she dresses in Jabari armor specifically to earn the favor of Ghekre, the gorilla god, in combat.

Now, she’s the latest character to join the roster in Marvel Contest of Champions!

Jabari Panther’s gameplay is all about slowly hunting down the Opponent and setting up the perfect opportunity to strike. She builds up Huntress charges in a variety of ways, most notably after using SP1, and by Purifying Debuffs with the new Cleanse mechanic. Once she has enough Huntress Charges, the Opponent becomes Hunted for a period of time, which significantly increases Jabari’s Panther’s damage and utility. If the Hunt is triggered right before Jabari Panther activates a Special Attack, she gains a potent Fury Buff, even further increasing her damage output.
