John's Atomic Smash misses when too close, and so do Joe's Hurricane Upper, as well as Andy's Geki Hisshouken (although you have to not even walk a pixel back during the qcb for that to happen so it probably doesn't happen against the bigger guys - I think I got that against Takuma). I haven't found any other character where that happens. Those moves could use just a little more width.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
