I've seen this but usually the Dante knows how to bold cancel or whatever the hell you call it. so all he needs is the initial hit to get a massive ap gain or a kill

Still never enough to win. As good as Dante's are, even if they know the lvl 1 hit confirm or always do an AP burst combo when they start hitting anyone, I still rarely seem them come out on top.

I win about three-fourths of my matches with Dante, but maybe that's because I try to stay mobile instead of standing around holding guard.

Most Dante have a good reason for turtling: his normals are horribly punishable. Unless you know him like the back of your hand, you'll find that he has very few approach options compared to most of the characters.

If it weren't for the empty cancel, he would be low tier for sure, and even with the empty cancel, he has to hope that nobody interrupts his combos.
