Today we discuss the cyborg ninja robot man

Raiden is interesting, he has pretty much always been a good character, but the recent buffs to his Down Grab make him extremely powerful and definetely deserving of a spot in High Tier, maybe even Top Tier

What do you guys think though?

He'd be top if he wasn't so punishable.

That's what I used to think as well but I'm pretty sure he's at least the bottom of top tier now.

While he's more punishable than other top tiers, it's just when he does get in (in any situation, ground/air/tech chase), he's also more rewarding than any other top tier.

So it kind of balances out in that regard.

I mean in terms of reward of landing any kind of hit, Raiden is almost Kat level...just not as safe.

Please explain how punishable he is because I just can't see it.

I swear its almost like Raiden can immediately cancel everything, even his landing lag into his counter.

You must be fighting Jesus's Raiden or something.

Given recent results, Phaze is the best Raiden out there right now.

I wonder what his opinion is on how safe/unsafe Raiden is.

I personally think he's pretty unsafe for a top tier, but again he more than makes up for it with his kill/damage potential. I think he's like the 5th or 6th best character in the game.

Hit up those grabs man. Also, I use E Cole, so I can punish a ton of his moves with Giga Punch too.

Guys, he's like the second worst character in the game. Only Drake is worse.
