I was bored, and jumped into training with that cats, and noticed both Toro and Kuro seem to do better then I thought. Yes, HP is junk and they have low reach, but their damage seems to be as good, or slightly better, then their human counter parts. I was surprised how fast I could bring someone down to low health once I got a groove going. Toro’s Hadoken seems to take off 1/3 of Kazuya’s life without gems!
I also noticed that, unlike everyone else in the game, the timer stops when they use their supers, even in Pandora mode. Meaning you can use their super without worry of dieing during it. Plus Toro’s Hadoken super can 2-3HKO while in pandora without gems. I think these cats would be amazaing in pandora… more practice is needed though. Only down side is that Toro does a slight dance after fireing the hado, limiting how many he can fire off while in pandora.
