One of the Coles probably, with Toro as an honorary mention.

All 3 characters have both a great ranged game and great up close game, and all of them have amazing options out of throws.

Good Cole: Can kill or AP burst from a max range tether, which is safe on block. Can also kill off of snowball, amp strike and his square combo. He is one of the only characters who can interrupt combos while being comboed (Side triangle and up triangle can be used to save yourself if set up beforehand.). He has a pretty **bleep** good tech chase game, and a pretty decent escape.

Evil Cole: Giga punch. Holy **bleep** Giga punch. Forget the wall of projectiles he'll set up, the tether, or the pots. No, the goddamn giga punch. This move comes out instantly if charged beforehand (Can be charged in the air, and the charge can be interrupted to be made safe), is safe on block, causes a crumple, has more super armor than anything else in the game, beating even counter moves and covers nearly half the screen. This move can be used to punish anything unsafe on block, to tech chase, to beat out moves that an enemy throws out, regardless of what it is and extend combos. Oh, and I think it's obvious, but it sets up for both AP bursts and supers. It's pretty ridiculous and by itself makes Evil Cole one of the best characters in the game.

Toro: I'll admit I don't know a whole lot about this character. He too has an aerial tether, a teleport kick, a divekick which can combo into AP burst and super, good projectiles, a good throw, a good level 1 (But not so hot level 2 and 3), and a hell of a mixup game.

Yeah, I think the only difference between the Coles is EC is a **bleep** explosive character that keeps you on your toes. Around him you will be kind of hesitant and block a lot (for good reasons obviously lol) while GC is more precise and most of his moves can be comboed after landing. He is more of a set up type and tries to get in close for big damage and I think he takes more skill (which I like). Which deters people from playing him and just go to the more explosive, quick results EC.

Oh and GC ice barrier is a super armor breaker (BD cannot tackle through it). So I find when I'm camping to through his ice ball, ice nades, and homing attack. But if I feel like im being approached i'll short hop and use my ice barrier, has good range, breaks armor, and can be comboed after it hits (jump square or tether grab). I just like his options, mobility, and the factor of being a threat close/mid/long range(:

Not saying he's the best though.

Really? I thought the barrier only worked on ranged moves? (Not that it matters too much considering how much ending lag is on the move...)

I think you're thinking of circle. He's talking about down circle.

I made a list the other day. Evil Cole is at the top I feel since he doesn't have any bad matchups really...Good Cole was just below him having maybe two or three bad ones. Then it was Drake, Ratchet, Fat Princess then Raiden.

I wouldn't say Raiden is top tier for 1vs1 as he DOES in fact have some bad matchups (the coles are his worst then the other bad ones are Ratchet, Big Daddy, Heihachi and Fat Princess and the rest are mostly even matchups)

So EC would be #1 while GC is a close second? Hmmm probably because EC is an explosive guy with the BEST **bleep**-move in the game. GC is more mind game & technical while EC is straight foward?

@Laybackkid E.Cole is just capable of fighting amazingly at both long and short range so whatever range his opponent can't fight well in he can just fight them at that range for the advantage.

His armored unblockable fully charged punch makes for one of the best moves to punish attacks in the game and it lands him a level 1 or 2.

Both his supers are good to do on reaction to things as a punish and I really can't think of any character he has a bad matchup to. I think Ratchet, Drake and Fat princess are even matchups with him but that's it.

Good Cole can do a similar role but doesn't have the same hit confirms and zoning game as his Evil Counterpart, he has his own but they are no where near as useful as E.coles.
