The monkey, the myth, and the legend.

Hit-Monkey is a versatile assassin who can quickly eliminate his targets while bypassing their defenses, and now you can recruit him for your roster in Marvel Contest of Champions now! 

The nunchaku he uses for his basic attacks are guaranteed to be Critical Hits, and landing three Critical Hits in a row enables him to switch into one of two combat modes. The first, Assassin’s Cunning, lets him strike evasive Opponents and improves his Bleed damage. The second, Primal Rage, lets him ignore enemy Armor and Resistance, and lets him inflict Distorient. Choose the right mode for the right enemy, and show them who the real superior simian is!

As a Character Class skill, Hit-Monkey’s basic abilities include Critical Bleed, Assassin’s Cunning, Primal Rage, Disorient, Critical Damage.

Hit-Monkey’s tool kit includes three special attacks and one signature attack. With Monkey Business, if Business Assassin’s Cunning is active, this attack has Vigilance and cannot Miss. If Primal Rage is active, this attack is Unblockable. If this attack causes a Miss to fail or it breaks through a Block, refresh Assassin’s Cunning and Primal Rage, and Hit-Monkey gains Vigilance and Unblockable until Assassin’s Cunning or Primal Rage expires.

Using Barrels of Monkey, if activated immediately after Hit-Monkey lands a Critical Hit, all hits in this attack are guaranteed to be Critical. Assassin’s Cunning and Primal Rage are paused during this attack.

And Macaque Massacre gives players a Cruelty Buff for 27 second(s), increasing Critical Damage Rating by +1130.77. While this Cruelty is active, striking the Opponent pauses Assassin’s Cunning and Primal Rage for 0.30 second(s).

Hit-Monkey’s signature attack, The Monkey, The Myth, The Legend, while the Opponent is above or at 25% Health or is a #Mercenary, Assassin’s Cunning and Primal Rage last 3.5 second(s) longer. While the Opponent is below 25% Health or is a #Mercenary, Hit-Monkey Passively reduces their Defensive Ability Accuracy by 40%.

Recommended masteries include Deep Wounds, Cruelty, Assassin. 

Hit-Monkey’s strengths include Variety of Damage, Fighting #Mercenary Opponents, Purify Debuffs, and Evade attacks. 

Hit-Monkey is available for downloading now on Marvel Contest of Champions on iOS and Android devices!
