Psychic Force 2012/Gates
Gates is a big, damaging midrange character who has a number of strong tools that he can use to bully and frustrate the opponent. Once they make a mistake he can make them pay with those same tools and put them right back in a pressure situation. Although his moveset appears to favor zoning, this is a mistake; Gates can be considered a mid-range pressure character who can switch to defensive play when needed. On the other hand it can be difficult to force an advantage when factoring in his slow movement speed and big hurtbox, so Gates has to be keenly aware of when to switch between offense and defense. Gates requires a lot of patience and practice to really shine with let alone a good understanding of the game mechanics, but once you have a good feel for him he can be a truly powerful character.
And just to hammer it home; he's BIG. Very big.
