Basic Strategy

The Good:

  • Best defense in the game.
  • Its throws do more damage than usual.
  • Pretty useful fireball.
  • Strong uppercut does too much damage for its own good.
  • Most specials are easy to chain to.
  • Shotels make several hits when used both weak and strong.
  • Only normal Super that can hit 20 hits, which completely blocks Epyon's super.

The Bad:

  • Normals don't chain well at all.
  • Is very reliant on specials.
  • Super is horrible.
  • Attacks are slow, leaving you very vulnerable.
  • Can't throw while airborne.
  • Sluggish
  • Damage is not even halfway decent.
  • Not much else to hoot about.
  • Super doesn't cancel
