Shadow Fight Wiki

Marcus, the great hero of the past, was the only one who refused to participate in the tournament. But the Shadow Mind always gets what he wants, and somehow he forced Marcus to do it. The hero was famous for his unbending will, but is he still the Marcus we know?

Marcus is one of the playable characters in Shadow Fight Arena, obtainable from chests.

Marcus' giant sword deals a lot of damage, but it's very heavy. Remember that it will be much harder for your opponent to dodge when the Through the Glitch ability is activated! Marcus' attacks become fast and unpredictable. Learn to use them and become an unstoppable force!


Marcus's Giant Sword not only deals tremendous damage, but also covers a lot of distance which allows him to easily counter opponents' missed attacks. Also, with the Legion's Hero talent, he can hard counter opponents that can only stay in Shadow Form for a short amount of time, like Fireguard or Kibo.

However, its when he obtained the Through the Glitch ability that allows him to become the real deal. When that ability activates, his Unbreakable Intervals will now warp him out of existence, allowing him to evade hits completely. Also, his attacks now becomes much faster, especially with the heavy attack which is now much faster and has less recovery, allowing for spams with little risk of being punished.


Despite his strengths with the Through the Glitch ability, he is just not good when he does not have the ability. Not only are his attacks slower than a turtle without it, the moves also has a long recovery time, allowing the opponent to perform roll + throws with no risks whatsoever. Also, due to him being slow, Marcus is completely helpless when he is cornered by agile characters like Jet and Kibo.
