Underrated Characters


#1

So in your opinion who are the most underrated or underused characters of AE?


#2

Sakura.

I dont see a lot of Sakura players online nowadays. I think she is very underrated, her damage output is insane once u kno wat ur doing. Put this 2gether with her mix up game and the fact that her EX tatsu is +4 on block and she is a very gd character


#3

Gen, Sakura, Oni, Guy (in my opinion, ofc)

And Yun for a brief moment before 2012 was released to the general public because everyone thought he was gonna be shit post-nerf (this was almost instantly blown out of the water)


#4

Oni, Guy, Sakura, Cammy, Ibuki.


#5

Evil Ryu…


#6

Underrated, as in, characters that are regarded as lower than they should be.

Gen: Decent footsies, great walkspeed, and solid anti-air when it doesn’t trade.
Hakan: That oil gives him abilities no other character has, and being able to stack it can make it endless.
Oni: has default 1000 life, air mobility, and decent damage. While he may not be as good as Akuma, he’s certainly ain’t shafted like E.Ryu.
Gouken: Having that option to shoot projectiles toward the air is really good. Very useful against characters like jump in a lot. Sucks when the opponent can easily go through them.
Dudley: I feel like people aren’t using him to his potential. Yea, his DP sucks, but he can goes under projectiles and combo off of overhead.

Gen, Guy, Ibuki.

I always thought Ibuki sucked until I played a 6000 PP Ibuki… shes got too many tricks. Or maybe it was my lack of matchup knowledge…dunno.


#8

Sadly, too many… Mainly:

Gen: if you don’t know his tricks he WILL play you like a drum (painful personal experience >.<)
Ibuki: same as above
Hakan: oil moves hit hard - an actual RANGED grappler - he have the MOTHER of all the antiairs as an ultra…
Juri: fast and with great range
Dhalsim: if you don’t have a somewhat safe way of getting up and close he is a nightmare


#9

Guy, Ibuki,Dudley - all can just rpae you but we see so few people playing them.


#10

Ibuki is very good.

I do agree that Evil Ryu is underrated by many (who think he’s absolute garbage) he has what it takes to be a solid character, I don’t think he’s on the level of the counterparts. Which I had a huge argument on earlier, lol. He definitely isn’t unplayable.
