Bloody Roar isn’t really a very competitive game at all and the learning curve is quite simple. So some may not like this game at all. But there are those who do =P
Now I’ve searched many a time for a tier list and failed. I figured the tier list was either just common sense or that nobody really cared to make one. Well whatever the reason, if one exists, I’d like to be linked to it. If not, can we try to discuss a tier list now?
Here’s what I have so far.
.::UPDATED::. March 19, 2008
S Tier: Uranus
A Tier: Kohryu, Yugo, Alice, Ganesha
B Tier: Stun, Chronos, Bakuryu
C Tier: Uriko, Shen Long, Long (Kung-Fu Kitties)
D Tier: Shina, Gado, Buzushima
F Tier: Jenny, Xion
Uranus - Should be quite obvious. She’s the fastest, has great damage output, easy to punish opponents, easy to punish blocks, etc, etc.
Kohryu - For featuring an excellent moveset, great setups (some of which are unblockable I think, although this is unclear to me), great priority, mad super moves, a projectile in beast mode, quick attacks, great mobility, great damage output, and decent mix ups.
Yugo - For incredible block strings that build beast meter rather quickly and ability to cancel many of his attacks. Very quick, nice damage output and excellent priority. Pressure is also a dangerous feat for this guy. His supers aren’t difficult to connect and features great push back techniques if he needs to. Also features stance switching. Not sure as to what benefits he has with them, but it’s there =/
Alice Excellent Juggling opportunities and wall combos. Very safe moves and not bad mixups either. Can make use of an abused Hyper Beast form. Often wins in the battle of trading blows and not so bad at sending opponents out of the ring either.
Ganesha - Excellent Damage output, even greater in beast mode. Size increase, allowing for more distance, via elephant trunk. Uninterrupted maneuvers and can make use of an abused Hyper Beast Form
Stun - For excellent damage output and some unblockables. Can easily setup his grapples and even combo into grapples from punish. Lacking speed and agility, Stun makes up for it by easily being able to take heavy chunks of life away and having a picnic punishing his opponents.
Chronos - In human form, there’s not much to say. While his safe/unsafe moves are about half and half, he’s clearly dependant on his beast forms, in which he has 2 of. Chronos has the great ability to take away the opponents beast gauge to fill up his own, to ensure that he stays in beast mode and potentially prevent his opponent from ever getting it. Has decent juggles in beast form and his Pheonix mode is even more potent with devastating moves and the ability to somewhat fly.
Uriko - Wide variety of combo routes thanks to her combo ring. May seemlessly enter beast mode while performing the combo rings. Very quick and agile. Damage output has much to be desired and super moves can miss sometimes. Very potent block strings.
Shen Long - Wide variety of combo routes thanks to his combo ring. May seemlessly enter beast mode while performing the combo rings. Quick and has decent block strings and pressure abilities. When punishing an opponent, it can be quite time consuming.
Long - Wide variety of combo routes thanks to his combo ring. May seemlessly enter beast mode while performing the combo rings. Decent combo strings and nice mixup options. His throw is great for knocking opponents out of the ring.
Jenny Premature Placement
Buzushima Premature Placement
Xion Premature placement
Please let me know if you agree or disagree so I can shape up this tier list >.<
