How Krauser joined the Tourney

A former U.S. agent, he was once a close friend of Leon S. Kennedy, until he was presumed dead two years before the events of the game and disappeared. In reality, he infiltrated the cult in order to procure the sample of "Las Plagas" and is actually working for Albert Wesker.

In addition to being a skilled knife fighter and archer, Krauser is also endowed with the ability to transform his left arm into a giant mutated sword-like claw. Leon fights him twice during the course of the game: first in an interactive cut-scene which depicts a knife fight between the two, and later in an in-game battle across a set of ruins on the island. At the end of this battle, Krauser is assumed dead. However, in the "Separate Ways" mini-game he encounters Ada Wong who kills him for good.

Krauser does three swift knife strikes as the camera zooms saying "Consider it done."

Special Moves

TMP (Neutral)

Krauser fires his TMP at his opponent. He stops firing after twenty rounds. These bulelts can pierce through coverings the opponent hides behind.

Bomb Arrow (Side)

Krauser uses his bow to fire an explosive arrow.

Blood and Knife (Up)

Krauser leaps into the air swinging his knife hard.

Sword Through Butter (Down)

Krauser dashes forward and back cutting with his knife.

Knife Danse (Hyper Smash)

Krauser dashes to his opponent saying "I can see your every move!" If he hits, he makes the opponent dance while Krauser attempts to cut up the opponent with the knife. After five dodges, Krauser cuts the opponent's stomach, then the chest two times, and finishes by cutting the opponent's throat.

Plaga Blades (Final Smash)

Krauser mutates his left arm into a Las Plagas bladed arm and declares "Witness the power!" He can then use new attacks such as thrusting his Plaga arm and swinging the arm like a sword. This wears out after 25 seconds.

Bonus Costume

Krauser Mercenaries Render.png

Krauser's sole Bonus Costume is his shirtless appearance from the boss fight against him in Resident Evil 4. To unlock, one must clear Poker with Krauser. After Daniel J. D'Arby panickly laughs, then collapses, the announcer will say "You've earned a new costume!" and a Smash Ball (appears on the lower-right corner) will appear with a message saying "Outstanding, you've got access to Krauser's shirtless appearance!" Then, highlight Krauser and press Minus.

Victory Animations

  1. Krauser throws his knife up constantly saying "That's what I'm talking about!"
  2. Krauser dashes and does two knife slashes saying "You don't seriously think a conservative mind can chart a new course for the world, do you?"
  3. Krauser cleans blood off his knife and says "I think I'm feeling a victory song coming over me."

On-Screen Appearance

Krauser jumps down to his point readying his knife and says "It pretty much means that you're on a tight leash."

Trivia

  • Krauser's rival is Kasumi Todoh, an aikido girl searching for her father. His second rival is Orochi the Serpent King.
