Gon was better than both of those. He had a Y loop and fast recovery time. I saw someone utilize him very well online once.
Sadly, once I picked up on his gimmick, Gon went crashing straight back into bottom tier. But at least it was a good fight while it lasted. --- http://tinyurl.com/ckb9ykw http://www.gamerhandles.com/sig/Durango.jpg
Also, I find it ironic how people list the worst characters as Piccolo and the others, but fail to mention Nico Robin. She was a glass cannon without the cannon and had some of the worst guard defense ever. --- http://tinyurl.com/ckb9ykw http://www.gamerhandles.com/sig/Durango.jpg
Robin has some things that make her not so terrible. intrinsic auto guard is not always the best thing, but given her lack of J-Soul, it's somewhat welcome. Also, her aerial Y is pretty cool, being able to home in with them knives from wherever. And, she can at least combo into her specials without supports. That's not something that can be said about Piccolo or Gon. --- "Freddie Mercury is a sex machiiiiiine ready to relooooooad, like an atom bomb, he's about to wooooahhh wooooahhhh wooooahhhh EXPLODE." - bluerain
The only person who could use her relatively effectively was SoulQuincy. Most people couldn't even finish a combo without dropping it entirely. That, or Yusuke just had a crushing matchup on her. --- http://tinyurl.com/ckb9ykw http://www.gamerhandles.com/sig/Durango.jpg
