    Why some consider Ragna weak story-wise? A breakdown of his strength

    It seems varies because people forget about Ragna's state also DO varies (crippled state, base Ragna state, activating Azure state, activating Azure with unlocking IDEA Engine state). Though note that there's some change for Ragna that from CT to mid CP, Ragna is a pure brawler, he fights by blindly throwing power around, while since CP End, Ragna learns to fight properly from his losses that he becomes much more efficient fighter. Crippled state is when Ragna is at his weakest, can be when he's mortally injured or when his Azure is nullified by Hazama or Celica, handicapping him (especially Celica one that he's half bind and can't use his right arm). Most if not all of his losses in CT-CP are in this state (likely his injury caused that in Nu, nullified by Hazama/Celica in other ones). Base Ragna state is when Ragna fights fresh but not activating Azure. Activating Azure state is when Ragna fights with his Azure activated, giving him power up from base Ragna state, usually represented in his Unlimited mode gameplay-wise. Activating Azure with unlocking IDEA Engine is when Ragna purposely made his Grimoire went berserk, making him out of control and had a risk of destroying his body. This one's only used once against Susano'o. And that includes you to forget his state here.... Base Ragna was instantly defeated by Susano'o, but Ragna activated his Azure and unlocked his IDEA Engine in the 2nd confrontation (this is Ragna's near Black Beast state), therefore he's massively powered up can stand against him that time.

    What did you refer to for "get this"?
  3. Some complained that Ragna 'suddenly become strong' in CF as he kicks everyone's ass there but for fans he was mostly known as 'underdog' before CF. Is it just because of him being talked down a lot despite his feared reputation or his 'many losses'? This is his battle breakdown, story mode canon ones: NOTE: 'Base' Ragna = Ragna without active Grimoire (usual non Unlimited Ragna, not the crippled one) Before CP True Ending (more details on Quote below) TLDR/Conclusion for pre-CP True Ending: All of his struggles are against an enemy that has equally or even more fearsome reputation such as (mentioning from CT to CP ones): Rachel (Daughter of famed Clavis and dubbed the Onlooker of the world) Hakumen (Leader of legendary Six Heroes who slayed Black Beast) Hazama (Which houses Terumi) Kagura (Head of Mutsuki, most powerful Duodecim in NOL, also ranked General) Azrael (Have many, nicknames that each one sounds as dangerous as "Grim Reaper") etc. Then, most of his struggles/loses are also when Ragna is handicapped And in conclusion for Ragna, base Ragna is actually stronger than you think. The only ones matching him/stronger back in CT was Rachel, 20% Hakumen (Ragna's stronger with Grimoire active), and Nu. And since CP he's not below 20+% Hakumen, contrary to popular belief. He's already matching him without active Grimoire and the other losses of his was only because Celica crippling him. Post-CP True Ending and CF (more details on Quote below) TLDR/Conclusion for post-CP True Ending and CF: CF Ragna isn't Ragna suddenly becoming powerful for no reason. Ragna is just being the same Ragna in CP True Ending before (In which Ragna improved himself with skill). Also, Ragna isn't winning because of Doomsday effect, because Ragna is already stronger than most Qualifieds (such as Litchi, Makoto, Bullet, etc.) since even first game and Ragna without active Grimoire have become on par with the Qualified powerhouses like Kagura or 20+% Hakumen since CP True Ending.

    BB5 Prediction and Discussion

    You did say above that "some returning characters won't be playable like Jin because he can't fight anymore." But I'm just pointing out there that we lost more CF casts than you think. I mean that yeah BB5 can happen, but how about the loyal fans of the series who only play for fighthing part (which I think 80% of BB playerbase)? They'd probably be mad for the loss of the casts, due to "BS story reasons". Mori originally wanted Nu and Lambda to stay dead, but due to fighting game demands (complete playable cast), Mori revives them and brought them back and Mori doesn't want characters to be playable for the sake of being playable.

    BB5 Prediction and Discussion

    To be honest, I'm not sure what to do on BB5, both on gameplay and story (because Mori doesn't want to have a character for the sake of playable - the reason he revives Nu and Lambda -_-) CF is established as end of Ragna's story, but those who want BB to continue emphasized on Ragna's end. But looking at that, it seems that the story is truly over. "Ragna left the world" aside, the world pretty much got happy ending. No villains screwing with the world again, NOL can be a good government and maintains peace, Ikaruga (and whole world) is being restored, and no tragedy happened on any of the casts anymore, well except Carl and Nu. No big problems to solve anymore for story....except personal character problems in only 3 (Carl, Nu, Rachel) and giving information about some character's info (Hazama's fate, Tsubakumen). And gameplay-wise, we also lost good chunk of casts to be playable: Nine, Terumi (+Susano'o), Celica (Minerva too), Arakune <-- All Died. Noel (+Mu), Lambda <-- Become nuns, the former resigned from NOL and violence. Jin <-- Can't fight anymore. Hakumen <-- Sealed in Boundary forever. Probably not playable: Rachel (lost almost all her powers). Relius, Naoto, Hazama (All left BB world, Naoto back to his universe). Azrael (being frozen for good and unlikely to be released as no problems in that world). Nu (crippled). Ragna isn't in btw, he didn't die, only all memories of him is removed in the world. And Es also going through same fate Ragna did at the end of XBlaze 1. Some candidates of playable characters: Taro Sasagae. Kajun Faycott. Shiori Kirihito. Ciel Sulfur. Possibly either one of Mai's parents. Possibly Raquel Alucard if she goes same fate like Naoto. And ofc, Alpha. None of them are big trouble makers like Izanami, etc. Dunno about Alpha. Linhua's not in because obv not fighter (Celica is all Minerva work), Trinity soul dies for good at end of CF, Meifang and Fuzzy died. Dunno about new mechanics. I honestly feel confused on how this series will be continued. CF solves most of problems and renders many casts died or inactive.
