To me, the rank list feels like this, and in order. S Kevin Terry Gatou A Jae Grant Kain B Jenet Marco C Rock Dong Hotaru D Hokutomaru Griffon Freeman Kevin's still the character to beat. You can switch within 2-4, and you would still feel right. Gatou players will give Terry ones fits, but I find Terry to be that good. I know that Jae should be at the top rank instead of A, but one, the S rank in my case here only has 3 slots (the middle rank ends up with only 2 slots since there are only 14 characters), and two, Jae's average speed can't make me bump him higher. Sure, he has good combos, but Ter and Gatou don't put as much of a strain as Jae does. Boss characters at A: that sounds right. They're both scary in the hands of good players. They even play those characters better than the computer. People will type that she's an A or S character even, but Jenet feels like a watered down Mai for me to place her higher than B, though you can follow up the Harrier Bee with another attack just like the Mayday Mayday. Yeah, she's quick, but not Mai quick. Then again, she's more powerful than Mai. She probably has the best T.O.P. attack because the benefits outweigh its flaw. She's an okay character. Just not an A or S character, as I find her to be a difficult character to win with late in tight matches a la Morrigan in "Puzzle Fighter". Marco's usually in the middle. If not, low. Yeah, he's Ryou, but he feels more like Robert given his traits. Plus, he's not as polished as Ryou. Rock's in the middle rank or at the low one. You figure he'd be a lot more like his dad, but he isn't. His normal attacks don't come close to Geese's, and his Reppuuken and Raging Storm, even with the insanely easier motion for the latter, aren't as deadly. Sure, you can do multiple tasks after doing the Shinkuu Nage or the Deadly Rave, and the Rising Tackle's okay, but he doesn't have enough pop. (You can blame that on his Andy body structure I suppose.) At least he's faster than his dad. For someone that's supposed to be an air character, you figure that Dong would have more options, but he doesn't. That's why he's not as high as Jae. Sure, he's faster than his brother, but Jae has the better overall technique. Hotaru's a low rank character because she's the Athena of the game. Wonderful special attacks, but you can't abuse them, and as if her weak stamina's not bad enough, you also have to deal with bad normal attacks along with a quick, but bad T.O.P. attack. If she has a Power version of her Hakki Shou along with a better T.O.P. attack, I'd put her in the middle maybe, but she doesn't. Hokutomaru's Andy. Just a faster, but not good version of him. (He's the fastest character if I recall.) Sure, he has the triple shuriken tactic, but you can hit the stars if you're quick enough. If you thought that Hotaru's special attacks pushed your mind, his batch is worse. Maybe if he has the Kageru no Mai also, he'd be more respectable. Sadly, he's at the bottom group. Grif has a real bad bug. If he didn't have this bug along with a lack of a special anti-air attack, he'd be higher. Alas, he's stuck here. Freeman is the worst character in the game. The only thing that's going for him is his speed, but there are a good amount of characters faster than him. He is that flawed.
