His like to dislike ratio is way worse than F.A.N.G's and Kolin's. I honestly thought he was cool looking, I'm not entirely sure why so many people dislike him.

I don't want to dislike him or hate for no reason on new characters. Street Fighter V introduced a lot of new characters that I personally liked. But Abigail doesn't do it for me.

- His proportions are way off. Head is too small. Arms are too big compared to legs. Too big overall.
- He looks out of place with the cast and he's another 'big dumb' character. We get it, Capcom. You like cringe characters, but stop!
- His gameplay moveset sets LOOKS uninspired. His moves aren't flashy or fun to watch.
- Who are people going to be able to jump over him or throw him? He's too big and some animations will be weird AF on him.

I'm VERY disappointed in Capcom. This is why I shouldn't have bought Season 2 blindly. Mistake on my part.

Because people want the SF games to keep getting the same old characters over and over... It's like the MK fanbase always wanting the same characters from MK I/II on every new MK game... A lot of these people disliking Abigail will play him. You can count on it.

Because he looks like complete s***?

Visually he's a bloated mutant abomination, his animations are worse than USF4 Elena's, his intro is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen and it seems like Ono saw every complaint people have about SFV and took it as a challenge to one-up them.

What a nice twist. Suuure, buddy. Maybe we should accept any characters Capcom sends our way, without any criticizing. Get a grip, dude... Seriously.

A few people know. The FGC isn't the whole world. It's a small little niche community. For the rest of the world, Abigail is a s*** character and there's no appeal to go buy him.

He doesn't look like one though.

If they had kept his Final Fight design and proportions and threw it a bit more King Diamond references for flavour he could have turned out great. Really emphasise "The Warriors" style of street punk that Birdie used to do before he gained two hundred kilograms.
