The Martial Artist is a class in South Park: The Fractured But Whole. It uses kicks and punches along with knockback moves to slow and subdue the enemy. This class currently has the highest damage of all the classes in-game. 

Tactics

The Martial Artist specializes in dishing massive amounts of damage at close to range. Among all of the classes in-game, the Martial Artist's abilities deals the most direct attack damage.

Dragon Force Punch might have a limited attack range, however it serves out a massive knockback effect, essentially clearing any enemies with can badly affect the Martial Artist out of the way. However, this ability has a cooldown time of 2 turns.

Dragon Reversal can be regarded as one of the most punishing regular abilities among all the classes available, it can affect enemies within a range of up to four tiles in a row, inflicting Defense Down and Slow while applying additional knockback damage to the enemy at the last tile of the row. On the downside though, this ability also has a cooldown time of 2 turns.

Dragon Dance may not be as punishing compared to the first two Martial Artist's regular abilities as above, however it affects a wide attack range, able to apply direct damage up to 8 targets in a single attack.

The Martial Artist's Ultimate ability, Dragon Swagger might not be as damaging compared to its regular abilities (in fact it does not deal any damage at all), however it serves as more of a battle tide shifter, as it will affect all enemies into the Enraged status (excluding enemies immune to it), making them focus all of their attacks to the Martial Artist while gaining a massive defensive shield (basically similar to Call Girl's Blocked and Super Craig's Shining Hate Finger abilities, with the exception of affecting more than one target). This will allow your other party members to focus attacking the distracted enemies, while hardly being affected by their attacks.
