 Early PES
In PES 4 and PES 5 Anelka reached the peak of his stats as a centre forward: with a rating of 90 in Attack, 86 in Body Balance and 88 both in Speed and Acceleration, he was one of the fastest and strogenst forwards in the game. In addition he had 87, 87 and 88 in Shot Accuracy, Shot Power and Shot Technique respectively, plus a treble of 88 in Jump, Technique and Aggression, making him a deadly all-around attacker. His only enabled position is centre forward.
 PES 6
Anelka plays for English side Bolton Wanderers and is the star of the team. His stats have been lowered a little from PES 5 with the attack rating dropped to 85 and the balance one to 84.
 PES 2008
Anelka still plays for Bolton and is the best forward of the team. He gains the ability to play as second striker. In real life he made a switch to Chelsea FC in January 2008, a few months after the release of the game.
 PES 2009
Altough he has played very well for Chelsea in real life, his stats after passing to the "Blues" have been lowered update after update. His primary position is now second striker since in real life at Chelsea tends to play as a wide supporting striker with Didier Drogba playing upfront.
 PES 2010
He also finally got a deserved stats boost in the February Update. Now he has great dribbling skills, a high level of attack and fantastic finishing which makes him one of the best second strikers in the game. In comparison to PES 4 he is phisycally weaker (balance rating dropped from 86 to 75) but a more smart and accurate player thanks to the 93 rating in Attack and 92 in Shot Accuracy in addition to higher passing stats and 7 in weak foot accuracy. In this update he also obtained the skill card Reaction and the skill card 1-on-1 Finish so it' s easier for him to score in 1-on-1 situations against the goalkeeper. He also gained a 90 rating in Teamwork because of his hard work for Chelsea.
 PES 2011
Anelka underwent just a slight change of stats losing 1 point in Attack and acquiring the playstyle card Dummy Runner.
 PES 2012
Anelka stats dropped significantly all around in PES 2012. Most notably Shot Accuracy fell from 92 to 84 and Team Work from 90 to 80. The only stats in which he gained points is Body Balance that was raised from 75 to 80.
