Fighting games being my main genre (and the one I'm best at), this is an easy question to answer:

1. Bridget (Guilty Gear): My favorite character, period, and by far the one I'm strongest with in any fighter.

2. Noel Vermillion (Blazblue): Favorite from that particular series, and one of my best in that one, tied with Platinum.

3. Labrys (Persona 4 Arena): Took a liking to her pretty darn fast. Again, favorite/best for this game.



Generally, I dont pick characters because of their movesets or some gibberish like that, I just pick whoever I like the most, and then I MAKE them be my strongest for that particular game. I will also tend to find out who the lowest is on the "tiers" for any given game, and use them as well, specifically to beat high-tier characters used by pro types, because it entertains me.

And yes, I am a fan of Arc's games, hah. I know not of this.... "Capcom" of which you speak.

If I forever wanted to be UNDEFEATABLE then it would probably be these three :

Petshop from Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure
Hilde from Soul Calibur 2
Jin from Tekken 4

It would be fun just watching people react to almost guaranteed losses - everytime as they are all broken and banned from official game tournaments

If I was being sensible, I would opt for :

Taki from Soul Calibur 2
Rolento from Street Fighter IV
Daytona Car from Fighers Megamix - purely for the hilarity of it

Nice thread! :) My picks:

2D

Image
Faust (Guilty Gear)
This character looks and acts as mad as a box of ferrets, but he actually plays really well and is easy to pick up.
Image
Petra Johanna Lagerkvist (Arcana Heart 3)
Brilliant combotastic character, again really easy to learn. AH3 is a real gem, IMO, love the Arcana system. :)
Image
Platinum the Trinity (Blazblue: CSE)
Not really a very strong character (Taokaka's my fave in that regard), but I like the character design. Dammit, all Arc System Works' character designs are phenomenal - saw Misery's shout for Bridget and deffo second that. And Venom, and Potemkin. And...

3D

Image
Epon (Tobal No. 1)
Tobal has just a fantastic dungeon crawler mode that I've sunk a ton of time into, I've always kind of hoped that Soul Calibur would eventually do something similar. Epon and Gren are pretty much the two chars I main in this game.
Image
Alisa Boskonovitch (Tekken)
Robot Girl? Chainsaw Arms? A move that references Total Recall? F Yes. 8)
Image
Mila (DOA)
Brilliant sporty character design and some nice hard-hitting combos. Mila fits into the roster really well, IMO, and is a fave of mine now alongside Leifang.

Ryu - good all rounder and wouldn't stab you in the back
Sub Zero - he's such a badass I'd be cool by mere association
Kitana - lots of good moves and combos. Plus after the fight maybe we could......erm never mind
