Goon have to go with Trickster on this one. I'm more of an evade-y type player. In other games, I pick the quicker characters. Why need high defense when you can't get hit, why need high attack when you can attack 5 times faster.
Speed is usually one of the best aspects in a lot of games.
As for DMC, Trickster allowed me to be all over the place, it allowed me to close gaps and keep up the craziness. It's my favorite :D
