Mobile Legends Bang Bang recently added a new character to its ever-growing roster of heroes. Paquito, known as the Heavenly Fist, enters the game in boxing equipment. For the most part, Paquito looks a bit helpless compared to the rest of the Mobile Legends cast that wields various types of weapons, shields, and armor.
Nevertheless, there is more to this character than meets the eye; after all, having the title of “heavenly fist” must mean something other than a play on words. With that said, let’s take a quick overview of Paquito! The new Mobile Legends Bang Bang character gets all its inspiration by the Filipino Boxing Champ Manny Pacquiao.
Who is Paquito?
Paquito hails from a small village in Southwestern Moniyan. The description of the Paquito’s birthplace alone will tell you that they are far from the capital’s easy-going life. For instance, Paquito is a character inspired by Manny Pacquiao, who, just like the hero in focus, grew up in a small village far from the city. Paquito, like Manny, is driven by the ambition to become the strongest fighter in the world.
Paquito’s backstory pretty much resembles that of the boxing champion. Both fighters struggled through life to achieve their goals. If Manny Pacquiao became a world-renowned boxer, Paquito evolved to become a defender of the weak who travels the world in a quest to suppress and defeat the forces of evil.
What Are the Skills of Paquito?
Paquito may not wear fancy armor or wield legendary blades, but he sure packs much punch. Speaking of punches, the abilities or skills of this new hero originates from his devastating blows.
Heavy Left Punch
The most basic hero skill of Paquito is the Heavy Left Punch. He unleashes a powerful blow towards a specific direction dealing physical damage towards the opponent in range. Landing this devastating blow will also earn Paquito a protective shield for a short while, just enough to protect the hero from counterattacks.
The next skill is called Jab, which, for the most part, grants our hero a higher shield level. Besides, the Jab also inflicts area damage which affects the enemy closest to the target.
The third skill of Paquito is the Knockout Strike. This skill allows the hero to unleash an elbow strike that deals area damage to enemies at the front. Following the elbow strike is a strong haymaker blow that pushes the enemies to the edge of the attack range with an added slow effect. Paquito then unleashes a powerful uppercut as the main finisher of the skill with the enemies slowed down and pushed towards the edge before darting backward to a safe distance.
The Champ Stance is the fourth and most powerful skill of Paquito. It all made by stacking basic attacks and dealing damage with the skills mentioned earlier, the Champ Stance. Reaching four stacks with this skill enhances all three skills of Paquito without cooldowns. The no-cooldown effect is the extra movement speed of the character each time any of the power skills gets triggered.
All of the skills above are combinable and can made as a combo. Like most heroes in the game, you familiarize this fighter’s skills to take full advantage of his skills.

Third, the Endless Battle, a unique passive-divine justice that allows the casters next basic attack to deal additional true damage three seconds after using the skill.

This gear will also increase the Physical Lifesteal by 40% for five seconds. Gear number 5 is the Brute Force Breastplate, which is a Unique Passive-Brute Force.
