It’s day three of Menat-Mania in Street Fighter V. Rose’s fortune-telling apprentice has proven to be by far the most popular of Season 2’s reveals thus far. After seeing the tidal wave of tech coming in for her, it’s easy to think her future looks bright: she’s got great neutral, gimmicks, and the ability to cash out for a ton of damage from a variety of situations if she needs to.

Let’s see what the SFV community has come up with!
