That list means nothing. I KICK [butt] WITH ANYONE but Hanabi and Konohamaru there's no such thing as good and aweful characters, it COMPLETELY depends on the SKILL and STYLE OF FIGHTING of the PLAYER!!!! I can't handle Konohamaru, and I've had my [butt] handed to me by my opponent, who was Konohamaru. And don't underestimate Kidomaru CS2. My friend REALLY knows how to handle his arrow-based attacks, but I've gotten stronger too, so we're a pretty even match.
Dude that is their defense. And the characters you fight against are not that hard to beat. Someone like OTK naruto will rip throught Kono like no tomorrow. Lists like that just show you who has want, and who has crap. I like konon just like any other guy, but he ain't that great from everyone else. Have you ever fought anyone that use Anko, and won? And she is like the worst character in all of the games she has been in. And the only way you can win with her is winnign by time out. That isn't kicking butt, that is just sad.
Edit: Also that said you can't fight kono. He si so easy to pressure, and thanks to his low defense, he'll die in a matter of seconds.
But if you have the ramen to play him here's a guide to help you out.
Havik, watched your vid with Sasori, have you played the US version of UN 4? Because when I use Sasori I, in no way, meet the standards that you are with that dash. When I do the double x (jump->dash) Sasori literally moves about..1 inch, is there something else you're doing in that or did they change it to match his speed in the US version?
Dude Sasori is scary. And I have play UN 4 good sir. That man is super broken. His down O is use for defense, and to make some space between his foe. His offense is retarded good. He has an un-KNjable jutsu(meaning you can't get out of it.), that can be done 3 times in a row with all of your chakra. that alone is just godly. And did*I mention that items that cause negtaives stats decreases do not effect him one bit. So do you still think Sasori sucks? Also Gai is worse than Sasori.
Ok with that done. Let's move on to talk about the sound 5!!! So tell me what you guys think about them? I feel they are okay to use. But in my opinion. I think tayuya and jirobo are your best picks. Even tho all of the sound 5 is easy to knj, i feel these two have the best chance of beating someone. I'll put up some videos later. to prove my point about them.
CS2 Jiroubo - can't beat him if he has handicap. broken big time!!! this is why they don't allow awakening starts at tournaments.
Kidoumaru - good, his cancels are tricky though. his throws are a bit hard to substitute.
CS2 Kidoumaru - balanced considering you just can't let him get distance. some people think he's broken but I think you just need to get used to fighting him.
Tayuya - good, arguably cheap because of being able to hit behind her.
CS2 Tayuya - needs fixing! broken! throw is almost impossible to substitute! giants do too much damage and hard to substitute! jutsu is unblockable!
Sakon - godly! and balanced! my favorite for a reason.
CS2 Sakon - suffers a drop in defense, but gains attack! offensive game and infinites are the best I've seen!
Kimimaro - same as Sakon, but he is my 2nd-3rd favorite, maybe above or below Deidara
Sasori - I can beat him if he has handicap. CS2 Jiroubo and Naruto's awakening give me a heck of a lot more trouble than he does. He wastes his chakra doing Octo Needles, just block it and thrash him! He's not hard at all, just don't waste your chakra and make him waste his! He's not hard at all!
TS Shikamaru - Annoying, but again, he wastes his chakra on Shadow Conceal. Don't fall into the trap.
I will makes videos for Sasori and Shikamaru, and show you guys how to beat them.
I agree with most of your points. Sakon are pretty good because of their thing to take adv off of cancels. I don't think Kim that good. Even tho his throw is hard as like pie to KnJ. also jirbo isn't broken. he just has some nice strings that can't be block. He is really slow, and is only mention to be play as a bulldog character. Tayuya not cheap my friend. There are many characters like Tayuya that can hit from behind,i.e Sasori and Ts Temari. but tayuya is good for forcing some to KnJ. Time for some videos on these guys.
Jiroubo is actually pretty broken if he starts the match as CS2. In base he is pretty good but you can substitute him. In CS2 it's nearly impossible. This makes handicap matches impossible unless you play extremely carefully and get him to waste his chakra.
So who do you guys think are the worst characters in the game? I can name a few off the top of my head. And I'm sorry if you like these characters. Shoot two of the characters I'm abotu to name are some of my favorites. Anyways, it's Anko(worst character), Kononmaru(2nd worst), and Kurneai. I can't remember anyone else though.
