it's because superbot never played any of the games. Look at sir dan, he is the total opposite of his character in the ps1 games
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"
since ape escape 1 through million monkeys he had "STUN CLUBS"
But on the topic of characters with their original kinds of movesets, I believe Ratchet, Jak, and Kratos are the only ones who do everything from their games. I can name all of Ratchet's attacks, so there's that. Don't see why it's an issue anyway.
I actually wrote a paper about Sly and where each of his moves are from. The ONLY move that Sly has that is unique to this game is the Rail Slide Plus; while the Rail Slide itself isn't unique, it has never generated lightning behind itself.
