"Look at the size of those footprints..."—Steve Martin (voiced by Raymond Burr) reacting in awe to one of the ways Rare Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu can end. Clip from Godzilla, King of the Monsters!
Being a joke edit overpowered beyond belief, he has double the amount of health compared to Shin Gouki which slowly regenerates, is immune to throws and is completely unharmed by projectiles as they literally bounce right off him.
He retains most of his edit base's moveset, albeit now ridiculously buffed up. His comboability basically destroys the charts; he's capable of canceling any basic, special, or super attacks into another one of his choosing (even if he whiffs). What's more, all of his attacks are OTG.
His guard has been replaced with a parry, has a chance of bursting out of opponent attacks, and should he SOMEHOW lose all his health, he'll simply revive himself (he can only do it once, however).
If that's not enough, any time he's attacking above the screen, he may possibly take out a duck midflight, causing it to fall from the sky and possibly damage his opponent. And to top it all off, every single one of his attacks (even normals) have a chance of becoming completely unblockable.
Matches involving Rare Akuma may get interrupted at times by narrations of Raymond Burr's portrayal as Steve Martin in the film Godzilla, King of the Monsters!
