ED DLC Character

The SF6 newest character ED comes from Street Fighter V. He debuted in the SF5 Season 2 DLC, first appeared as a non-playable character in SF4, and became a potential replacement for Body for Bison. 

It doesn’t go well with ED and he manages to escape with the help of Balrog.  Balrog believes in his ability and then he formed the Neo Shadaloo, an organization that helps the victims of Shadaloo’s experiments. 

In SF6, Ed returns as one of the four season 1 DLC fighters. He currently lives in Metro City and has been framed by JP for crimes he did not commit.

Playstyle of SF6 ED

Ed’s playstyle can be considered a mixture of M. Bison and Barlog. The Psycho Spark in Ed makes it one of the unique characters of SF6. According to the SF6 makers, Ed’s punches are going to be impactful and he will have super-speed in boxing. 

Capcom has designed his lower half in a way that players can see his nibble footwork smoothly and add some volume to his upper body.

In SF6, his kickboxing fighting style was scrapped and replaced with a pure boxing style as Dudley. ED works with modern controls and the company has simply his inputs and integrated them into Modern Controls.

  • Psycho Storm: It’s ED’s level 2 super art that allows him to strike the opponent with flicker jabs at the highest speed.
  • Psycho Chamber: This feature allows ED to make his opponents in his punching bag.
  • Psycho Flicker: It’s a flicker jab that can go in three directions and surprise the opponent of ED. Ed can also use the power from SF5 and pull his opponents with psycho-powered tendrils.
