Liberation is Dormammu's most unique special attack.   After storing any combination of Dark Spell: Creation and Dark Spell Destruction points (up to a maximum of three) Dormammu releases the stored energy to produce a number of different effects. 

In Marvel vs. Capcom 3 these attacks could only be used while on the ground, but in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 you can perform Liberation and the Dark Spells in mid-air as well. When releasing your spell charges in the air, Dormammu will teleport to the ground directly below him and then perform the Liberation stocked. The animation is identical to his normal teleport animation, making it hard for your opponent to read. Dark Spell: Destruction is the only move he can use in simple mode, and can only be used after 3 charges. As an assist attack, Dormammu uses Liberation and uses the Dark Spell charges he had stored.
