    Fighting games where you see the same characters over and over again in online matches

    Even though fighting games these days have many characters to pick from but you only see the same few characters over and over again in online matches. So which few characters or even just one character do you see too much in online fighting games.

    My experiences

    Mortal Kombat- Just Scorpion and I only fought one good Scorpion and that was the #1 ranked player in the world at the time and I still won but he was good though. Everyone else was a typical basic 3 hit combo n00b lol.

    Street Fighter IV- Everyone picked Ryu, Ken or Akuma back when I played it online 3 years ago.

    Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3- Wesker in almost every match I fought, Sentinel, Dante & Taskmaster were also common characters I ran into recently.

    I played SF two months ago and people are still using Ken and Ryu like crazy. Not so much Akuma though.

    I'm playing MK now and I rarely come across Scorpion. No more than any other character I guess.

    Hate the VS games so I have no clue on that one.

    Going to pick up KoF13 eventually. Hope the MP isn't dead and filled with only Kyos.

    Soul Calibur V: I came across Siegfried, Xiba and Natsu mostly. Must say Xiba is one of my fave characters as well as I used him a lot.

    How could I forget Vergil and his normal moves that seem to hit you from across the screen but I just Hulk Smash them and then finished them off. Saw him in almost every match back when I went for plat but this time around still saw him but not every game like I did with Wesker.

    I can't comment on MK, due to the shitty network (I can only play players from NZ). However, whenever I play SSF4, it's always Ryu and Ken. Same with SFxT.

    For those that ever encounter me online in one of those games, I can guarantee that I won't be using any of the characters mentioned. If I play you in SFxT, I'll be using Heihachi and M. Bison

    I feel like i see Ragna far to much in ranked matches on BBCS:EX, i play Tsubaki, and from my experience, Ragna is like Tsubaki just better, curse you protagonist power!

    SF4 and SSF4 are really the only fighting games I've played online, and everybody and their dog uses Ken in those games.

    I agree with Natsu and Xiba being used a lot. Xiba especially by newbies who tend to spam his moves

    Some of the toughest fights are with the characters that are used the least, like Viola and Voldo.

    After playing the beta for a while now, Kratos seems to be the character I see most in PS Allstars. I wonder who else is going to be probably be the most common characters when the full game gets released?

    Now that the full game is out for PS Allstars, all I see is Raiden and Kratos. I'm the only Ratchet player so far I've seen.

    Skullgirls, you see only like 8 characters online...Oh wait-

    No but really, in UMvC3, Wesker, Vergil, Doom.
    In SCV, Natsu and Xiba, or poorly-created characters that have their movesets.
    In KoFXIII -which nobody plays anyway- I've seen lots of Kyos and Ioris.
