    ...Sagat.

    Crouching Fierce ftw.

    More seriously, what kind of feats do they have? Or should we go into an exhaustive study of their gameplay abilities and how they stack up against one another...

    ...a properly played King is cheap as hell and twice as dangerous.

    Sagat is the correct answer. There are versions of Sagat (OG Sagat in SFII SSF2T) that just make you drop the controller. Ryu might have started the fireball/uppercut combo, but Sagat pretty much mastered it.

    As for this matchup (no feats), Adon loses the range game to King. He has to work way too hard to get close and King super punishes you up-close. King should win the majority.

    I'm not even a SF player (much) and I know Sagat is the correct answer. ^_^ Crouching Fierce, various fireballs, Tiger Upper. Bleah. ^_^

    That's my feeling. I've only fiddled with Adon, and I'm sure a really good player can make him work, but all things being equal I'm betting on King, her various moves, and her DM/SDM moves to seal the deal.

    I know Adon has gotten his ass handed to him by Sagat. In Alpha 2 an engaged Sagat injured Adon so bad he was hospitalized for months ( Adon did beat Sagat in this fight, but an unfocused Sagat still mess him up,) in SF4 in Sagat's arcade prologue he knocks Adon out with a single move.

    I mean he has a feat of beating a stressed-out Sagat in Alpha 2, and he still got destroyed by Sagat.

    KING!? You mean this King?



    King is serious, SERIOUS trouble if your opponent knows her ins and outs well enough(I main K' in KOF) If your opponent is a long-time King player, all I can say is "You're already dead." I wish King went on a blind date and ended up with Corona Chan on a desert island.

    I know that in UDON, Adon ended up strong enough to rival Sagat, but alas, that's not canon (even though it totally SHOULD be. UDON is very good with the source material).

    yeah in canon Adon is basically just a joke compared to Sagat.
