It all boils down to design. Raph's Prep in SC IV is gimmicky because there's an easy way to deal with it. But say if Prep A track to the left, Prep B tracks to the right, Prep K is quick linear knockdown mid that breaks gauge like crazy, Prep 2K a quick linear knockdown low. People would be more afraid of his SC IV Prep. --- Despite the seemingly reduced stances, Raph does look interesting in SC V. Maybe it's because his moves look more varied. Or it could be the hat.
