I actually beat him in a FFA. He just keeps doing a short hop and throws that garbage can lid and when you get close he does that launcher into the leg grab air combo. A lot of Nariko players have been doing this recently. I will admit he almost won because of the stupidity of the other two players but still a good Nariko IMO.
Horrible combos, Low AP build, horrendous Supers (her level 1 can be hit out of even after the shot is fired, and her lvl 2 is WAAAAY too short), and has horrible match-ups with EVERY character.
I know this is more or less opinion, but it's my most stood-by opinion.
She's the only character that I've lost arcade mode with 8 times. (Runner-up: Big Daddy with Sackboy rival fight with 3 losses)
If you play her like Kratos, thinking all her combos are with square, then I laugh at you sir. Her square combos disconnect on purpose, not for long combos but for cancels and mixups. Her REAL combos require all three buttons, combining her square, triangle, and circle moves. They build 130-150 AP each. If you learn how to play with her, then one day you can do this too: http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a177/fulcar95/IMG_20130114_020939_zps9830558c.jpg

Came in to post this. Whoever that is must be some sort of god.
Nariko has some advantages that are great though:
One of the best level 3 supers in the game Pretty good AP gain The down + triangle grab is amazing for interrupting other people's supers In FFA, her level 1 can multi kill people who are stuck in combos, and there are a lot of Raiden's doing combos in FFA.

Her level 2 is actually pretty atrocious. It's extremely level dependent and even then it's still super easy to avoid. If she didn't have one of the best level 3s in the game she'd be absolutely unplayable.
big daddys lvl3 is one of the best too and he can move upwards. nariko cant, so if you can get very high it wastes super time for her.
