"Hey, lets make a keep-away character, and then give him a TINY STAGE!"
His stage isnt tiny! Tiny is Dojo (Parappa's themed stage) and that is suitable for him since he is more of a close combat character.
Radec's stage is inconvenient because at the beginning the platforms are occasionally elevated, and at the second phase of the stage the platforms are cut off to where Radec has difficulty sniping across the entire stage.
This can easily be done on stages like Paris and Metropolis. Radec's stage is medium sized, but playing keep away is easy against opponents on that level compared to Dojo and The Resistance Level (forgot what its called). --- Toro. Nuff Said. ~Academics Like to Fantasize too, You Know?~
