Daniel can't do much against Sly due to being outmaneuvered in most cases, unfortunately, just try to keep an eye on him as much as he's forced to keep an eye on you.
Sly cannot roll, shield, or air dodge. these are the 3 most important defensive maneuvers a person has other than a counter. He is only left with a counter. If its not a good one... what does he have defensively?
You can see the sly while he is invis, and not being able to do the 3 defensive things i named it is balanced. you HAVE to watch him or that will happen, just like anyone else. hes not confirming his level one by doing that, do you let a fat princess walk up to you and use a level one? nah, and you can dodge out of the sly level one as well. and if you know you have a spammy sly, you have to make him respect your play by going around it. one is a grab. another could be baiting the parry by sendin out that head and shielding waiting for it. then punish
He doesn't have reliable high AP combos. He has to capitalize on openings and then get out. If you look at his moves, most of them are actually semi defensive or movement/maneuverability based (counter, alarm clock, confusion smoke bomb, teleport, slide, and electric roll to an extent). A sly is supposed to play defensively like this. That's the point.
I kinda want to write a guide now
Exactly what Trashcrap said about Sly i agree with as a person who has Sly as a main. Also how did a Kratos OP thread turn into a complaining about Sly when that's how he's meant to play thread?
Kingdom Hearts FTW!
