Just out of curiousity, what do you guys look for when you decide what characters you add in your roster?

Good sprites, great combo flow, smooth animations and for me anyway, visuals.

I love characters that flow really well but still manage to be balanced, sorta flashy and not over the top.

I'm very picky about what I put in my roster, but I at least give most creations a try.

 I mostly go after innovative characters that stand out or come from games I actually enjoy playing, which is probably why I find myself going for a lot of custom anime characters. IQS, Sudara13, Rakurai, 586, Muteki, Ikaruga, Otz-Kai, RicePigeon, OHMSBY and so on.

You basically listed all the creators I go for! Cept on my list, you're there too :)

I also aim for custom anime characters mostly. In my whole roster only my last row is for non-animeish characters like SF, KOF, DS etc.

I add characters to my roster that I think are fun, even if they don't meet the quality standards of most rosters. (I'm especially a sucker for characters from franchises I like)
Hopefully someday I'll be able to make the little puffball on my profile pic.

For me, it usually depends on why I'm adding the characters into my MUGEN in the first place: Do I wanna play as you or do I wanna fight you? If it's the former, it comes down to whether or not I like the character's design and playstyle, and if I can feel comfortable playing as that character. If it's the latter, the design still matters but now I'm also looking at the characters moves and their AI behavior: If they're too overpowered or their AI is cheap or otherwise unfun to fight, I don't keep them around.

Characters with solid coding and standardized gameplay.

ATM I'm trying to make a KoF roster to use with ADD004 but I'm having quite of a hard time picking characters because KoF characters are all over the place with their gameplay. Makes me wish that KoF had its own "PoTS Style".

I look at hitsparks.

Usually, if they are alligned properly with each movements and hits then that means that the creator gave a damn about it.

Lol, that sums it up for me.
