Did you guys watch the newest episode of Death Battle? *SPOILER* Blanka ate Pikachu's head and then made Pokemon juice with blender, ending with an electrifying burp after drinking it. Finally G___ vs S_______ is fighting next!!!!
I remember hearing this one guy say "Blanka has the most predictable attacks of any Street Fighter character," despite the fact that Blanka's specialty is pretty much being UNpredictable. Also, in Street Fighter Alpha 3, he's arguably one of the easier characters to play. When playing on the medium difficulty (4 stars) I can beat the game with Blanka without much problem, but I can't beat the game with anyone else.
One thing I found weird about SFA3, though, is that it made Blanka out to be this fun loving animal, while the original Street Fighter 2 didn't give me that impression. ...Then again, the personalities of every character was a LOT less developed in the Street Fighter 2 series as well.
