I'm not trying to come off as insulting and I appologise if I am, it's just most of the Evil Coles I've seen have just been using him very mindlessly, I'm not attacking all Evil Cole players, just the ones that don't play strategicly, I see Evil Coles who do nothing but spam either the grenade or forward circle, in fact one particular spammer I fought in a stock match ended with me predicting him to spam forward circle off into the bottomless pit (This was in Alden's Tower.) and sure enough I used his spamming against him and used his stunned period to finish him with a super on his last life.
Yeah, Evil Cole's Level 2 can be fatal if you don't get everyone with it on a smaller stage like Dojo. There was one time when I was playing as Evil Cole without much experience, and I got everyone except a Drake with his Level 2. Suddenly I hear a "Hot potato!" and bam; Drake not only steals my Level 2 but gets a triple-kill in the process. Quite rage-inducing, haha.
Actually getting into that, I don't know if this was intentional but I discovered this when I played through Fat Princess' arcade mode, Evil Cole did his level 2, I avoided it but I wanted to see if I could cancel it with the forward circle guard but the moment the guard stepped into it he disappeared but Fat Princess suddenly teliported into the level 2 and I got killed as a result.
