~ Anakaris in Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge


Anakaris is a video game character in Capcom's Darkstalkers fighting game series, first appearing in Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors. Pharaoh Anakaris was the wise ruler of a large kindgom in Egypt, 5000 years ago. Upon his death, his remains have been entombed into a pyramid, in order to preserve them and allow him to ascend to godhood. However, after the pharaoh's death, the kingdom quickly fell to ruin.

Anakaris came back to life as a side effect of Pyron's arrival on Earth. After his awakening, he realized that he was no longer mortal and had acquired new powers. Seeing that nothing have remained of his kingdom, Anakaris departed with the intent of reestablish the former glory of his realm. Eventually, Anakaris managed to travel back in time and save his people from the approaching enemy.

During the events of Darkstalkers 3, Anakaris was dragged into the Majigen by Jedah's power, calling him from the future. In the end, Anakaris made up his mind, and decided to move his kingdom and his people to a different dimension, in order to save them from the destruction that the human race would have brought upon the world.
