Passionate Strike Heroic Might Pull Dominance Retribution
" Padawan to Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker became a Jedi Knight during the Clone Wars. Secretly married to Padmé Amidala, he was the biological father of Leia and Luke."
— In-game Description
Anakin Skywalker is a Light Side hero for the Galactic Republic in DICE's . Star Wars Battlefront II He arrived on February 27, 2019, as part of  The Chosen One Update.
As the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker is a powerhouse. A largely offensive hero, Anakin channels his emotions and inner conflict into his Force powers and abilities, and despite still being on the light side, Anakin can momentarily tap into the dark side.
Anakin's Passionate Strike ability deals high damage to the enemy hit by it. The Passionate Strike also breaks an enemy's guard, allowing Anakin to deal damage to lightsaber heroes blocking him.
Anakin brings enemies to him with his Pull Dominance, where enemies fall at his feet and take damage, allowing Anakin to finish them off with his melee attacks.
Anakin unleashes a massive burst of power all around him in a circular radius with his Heroic Might ability. Anakin can increase the range of Heroic Might with the more enemy players damage him (though Anakin also takes less damage while charging up Heroic Might), allowing Anakin to maximize its range affect more enemies.
Finally, Anakin taps slightly into the dark side with his unique, fourth ability: Retribution. When he and nearby allies take damage, Anakin's Retribution charges up. When Retribution is used, Anakin uses the Force to grasp and choke all enemies around him, dealing a high amount of damage to those caught in his punishing grip.
