5. Takashi Takeda
Takashi Takeda has 3 variations: Shirai Ryu, Lasher and Ronin. In the first variation, Takeda shows what he can do with a whip (throw enemies around the screen that is) and confuse his opponent with a fast teleport move. The second is good for strategists (or those who want to keep his or her opponent at a distance) as Takeda gets to use ranged area attacks. The Ronin variation is for those who like combat up close and personal, as Takeda gets to use dual swords, and a projectile, similar to veteran Liu Kang’s fireball.
