I know this doesn't help, but praying that SuperBot adds some mandatory recovery time to his square attacks is the only option I can think of... :smileysad:

It may not appear like it but Kratos is vulnerable for a small amount of time after he tries his square combo. You can either try grabbing him if you are close enough, or using some projectile. Most characters have either one of these and if not the rest should have a counter. Whenever fighting Kratos you have to use a mixed strategy of offensive and defensive techniques because his blades have so much range. It is slow but it is better than the alternative. The same applies for Raiden.

Well it would be nice if you told us who you are playing as? Good cole, since thats your sig or....?

 

as a main drake

 

this is probably why you see drakes out there constantly using barrel and machine gun as it is pretty much the only (easy) counter he has against kratos spam. 

 

 

spike: try get distance and keep him there with bananarang rc car bananas etc

There is a very small window, where you can punish a blocked square combo. If you don't want to rely on that just block the first two hits and then release block, the third hit will send you flying away. Then try to outzone him with cole, he has so much range and tools. If he's getting close and wants to spam again, try to jump above him and Up Circle him. Works great against most spammers.

Gotta agree with DarkErazor , if your character can't do anything just let yourself get hit once and get da **bleep** outta there.
I use Heihachi , Donte , Sweet Tooth and Sackboy. Heihachi and Donte can counter it , Sweet Tooth and Sackboy have a way harder time against "the most OP **bleep** in this game" , aka Kratos.
At least Raiden has some kinda lag after his square combo..
