"There are worst things then vampires, like me."
—Pre-match quote

Blade is a popular anti-hero from Marvel comics. Blade represents a part of marvel comics that doesn't cross over with the other heroes often, making him a great choice to put into the game to cover a wider range of their characters, but Blade uses guns and swords similar to many other fighters so they didn't think he's be very unique. Well time to roll up my sleeves and show them how to fix that.

"Some people are always trying to ice skate up-hill."
—Victory quote

Blade is a powerful Rushdown character with a large amount of zoning attacks, making him a threat at every range. Blade gains a 5% percent speed & damage boost when he removes his glasses or trench coat, and 10% boost for removing both. Blade removes his coat by activating his Vampiric Bloodline hyper mode. He can removes his glasses taunting or by taking damage, and his glasses return when he tags back in or taunts a second time. Blade can double jump, wall jump and 2-way air dash. His Vampiric Bloodline hyper mode is a double-edged sword, granting Blade a huge boost, but making it very easy to be KO'ed by a single combo. Blade's Zoning attacks are made for area coverage rather then damage, opening up opportunities for Blade to move in for combos.
