"I would pray now. A lot."
—Ghost Rider's prematch quote
Ghost Rider is primarily a hard-hitter with frightening reach. Using his hellfire-empowered chain, Ghost Rider stands his ground and controls space with his attacks rather than with his mobility; safely poking his foes at a distance, and reeling them in closer for serious damage. His full combos that start from mid-screen do more overall damage than his combos that start from close up. He has no normals or specials that reach full-screen, so it's best to team him with assists that reach full-screen to make him a threat at any range. Ghost Rider has no special mobility whatsoever other than his Spirit of Vengeance hyper which lets him drive around the stage for a short time and has hyper armor. Because of his whip-like attacks, he has often been compared to Omega Red, another character who uses a whip-like apparatus to attack enemies from afar.
