Looking quite nice and I can't wait to play him (and make some palettes for him too!), I would say adding a bit of visual flair would definitely not hurt though.
As I mentioned earlier for a slide move, something like this , just a small effect on things like the flip kicks and spins.
Even a bit seen here
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
For the lightning shield, I think the effect could use a bit of work, maybe borrow something from Magneto or Benimaru possibly and swap it?
