You fucking kidding me? Go watch youtube vids of Ruu. He FIGHTS EQUALLY AS GOOD AS SHOUNEN. NOW WHAT THE FUCK NOW? I still haven't found a single johnny player that ever entered high rank in tournys yet. Ever. At least, Ruu's team (well with monster dogura but Ruu had his fair amount of wins too) went to finals last time I checked (or was it semi-final? I can't remember). But Where the fuck was Johnny?
HIs damage is great? Fuck, maybe, but I need to get my coin hit first and I need 25% tension. What a fucking joke. And damage itself is not SPECTACULAR by any means. Jam, Slayer, Testament, Sol,...fuck it, more than half of the cast can do as much damage as he can do with less effort and more chance. He is not a big damage dealer anymore in this game.
