Newcomers to Street Fighter 6 threaten to steal the limelight from franchise mainstays. In the absence of Zangief or T. Hawk, the most physically imposing fighter is Marisa. She was a dominating force with a height of 6’8″ and a weight of 269 pounds even before the introduction of her special moves. Now, Marisa is a borderline OP character!
Marisa is the best in hand-to-hand combat, where she will apply her dominant gladiator moves. She can go through Drive Impact while she shields with a powerful block, giving you the advantage against all brawlers in SF6. This alone will make her a predominant choice among players who want to finish combat fast. At the moment, Marisa looks very powerful, but we will have to wait until she comes out in a game to be sure of how good a brawler she is.

The Street Fighter 6 release date is June 2, 2023, so there is more than enough time to nerf or buff not just Marisa but all characters. The worst thing about fighting games is having a character with OP skills, and Marisa is very close to that.
