hair.... an evil personality? .... Not another Sephiroth
clone! (Talking about the actual FFVII storyline here! lol). Jokes aside, Jean Kujo's
gothic-looking karate attire and dark personality are pretty cool right off the
bat, especially in VF. I have mixed feelings about his silver hair, but
color-scheme-wise, at least he's an original-looking fighting game character (although...
there is Violent Ken).
If you're not a fan of Jean's default get-up, he does have a huge variety of
customization options. He seems to fancy the Japanese goth/punk clothing style
outside of his Karate Gi, which earns him my seal of approval for
"coolness". He has a sort-of straight-forward karate-based fighting
style, which seems quite a bit inspired by Jin
Kazama's. On that note, Jean even has the same initials as Jin... hmm. Aside
from that, he does have a good amount of moves that define him as an original
fighter. Lastly, the VF series is short on characters with "darker" personalities... so Jean
definitely helps with the imbalance. He's one of my favorite characters to use
in VF5: FS.
