This is obviously my personal opinion and it’s open to debate.
I tried to study every match the maximum that i could before creating this chart instead of letting my personal opinions as a Rash main count.
Alhought i honestly think that this chart is quite fair, there’s some matchup’s that i think that deserve an deeper explanation of the reasons why i considered like that:
Vs Sadira - In a nutshell, as an aerial Rushdwon archetype, Sadira shines in the air and struggles in the ground. The point is, that Rash has tools to easily take her out of the air and put she on the ground. Tools like the tongue or the ball can easily defeat almost any thing that Sadira can do in the air, stuffing her offense and forcing she stay grounded to don’t take any risks. Once she is in that position, she is forced to battle an opponent who have both normals and specials betters tha her, which is a true struggle. Being able to take an opponent out of his/her confort zone and keep him/her playing a game that he cannot play bery well it’s a big advantage in my opinion. Thats why i believe that it’s Rash best matchup in the game.
Vs Eyedol: This is kinda hard to judge but i believe that vs the warrior, it’s 5-5, but against the Mage is 6-4 for the Toad. Reason is that Rash can easily beat Eyedol zonning with the tools that he has. Also the Mage poor wake up and big hitboxes give Rash an opportuniy to make some combos that he cannot do in most of the cast (as Menzo showed us last year against Jackal Eyedol). This factors make the fight pretty hard for Eyedol until he switches back to Warrior form.
Vs Gargos: Rash has a consistent answer for everything that Gargos can thrown at him. Gargos cannot fly in this match without the risk of being hit by a tongue that can lead to a full juggle. Gargos also suffers to zone Rash, since the toad has very good mobility and can easily approuch him. Also minions can give easy meter for Rash once they are on play. Not to mention a big hitbox and a horrible wake up game, that can let Rash pressure Gargos with absolute no respect. Very hard for Gargos.
Vs Orchid: Boot beats every single special of Orchid, forcing her to play footsies and neutral against Rash, However Rasg has better buttons (imo) and much more mobility, which gives him an advantage when the fightes takes that direction. It’s not impossible, but i honestly think that Rash has an easier time fighting Orchid instead of the oppositive
The 6-4 section: Yes, i came to believe that Rash has no bad matchup’s at all. I personally find Tusk, Cinder and Omen very annoying and can seriosly stuff most of Rash offensive game, forcing him to play a more slow paced match against them, but i don’t think that this is enough to serve as a reason to call a bad matchup, since Rash can still be very dangerous in a more slow paced match too.
Thanks in advance for all the comments.
