- Easy to land ultra. Rufus can connect it from his target combo (LK->RH), j.RH, galactic
tornado in the corner, and a FADC'd Messiah kick.
- Has good matchups against most the cast. May have problems against characters with projectiles.
- EX Messiah kick is one of the best EX moves in the game (if not the best) due to the insane amount of invincibilty on startup.
- Using his dive kick you can really apply a constant pressure and play a heavy mixup game.
- Easy to pick up and play due to his easy to land ultra and the EX Messiah kick.
