-Very good pokes
-Can ride a single knockdown into a win
-One of the best natural throws in the game
-LP headbutt is jesus
-Almost all of his high damage can be guessed out of or is super specific
-Very poor punishing options, which are either specific (character cannot be crouching, must be in range or VERY VERY disadvantageous on block), or low damage (LK, LK Tackle), outright cannot punish some things that others can.
-Almost all of his garunteed high damage is incredibly risky if you guess wrong (airfireballs and c.HP leave you at a huge disadvantage)
