Although he's slightly
generic visually, El Blaze is an awesome tribute
to the iconic pro wrestler, Rey Mysterio Jr. (and masked luchadores in general). Naturally, El Blaze fits into the
Virtua Fighter series very well, and he presents a very unique, flashy, and
incredibly entertaining fighting style! He's also really dynamic and fun character to use.
For that reason, El Blaze is easily one of my personal favorite "new age" VF
characters. My only complaint is that his voice doesn't really suit him
(although it's hilarious). lol.
Also worth mentioning is that he has some epic alternate masks and
customizations in VF5: Final Showdown.
