Blanka, the original mix-up character. While in the newer games he is not the most dominant mix-up character, he can still do the job. The Blanka player will have to rely on spacing and normals as much as gimmicks and tricks. Using his array of awkward and useful normals, unique specials moves, and movement options you will have to confuse and irritate your opponent to get the upper hand. Here are some things to keep in mind coming from a casual player of Blanka in every game he has been in:

Learn to convert off of stand LP. It isn't as glamorous or usefule as cr. mk into hadokuen, but sometimes it is all you will have.

If you can make them block. Then throw them. Do it again and again. In Street Fighter throws are integral for the rock, paper, scissor of the game's flow. With Blanka, it couldn't be more true.

You need to be as patient as you are random and you have to be able to switch at quickest of moments.

Blanka has some of the most polarizing match-ups. Either figure out how to play against your bad matches or start practicing a secondary.

Meter will save your life, do not waste it trying to chase down a high damage combo that will not kill or put you in a timer scam situation.

Do not let your feelings get hurt by all the people that hate Blanka. There are a bunch of them. If this character is what makes the game fun for you, ignore the negativity and hate people dump on this character. He is unconventional at his very core, but that is what the 50/50 mix up is predicated upon. Plus in the era of nowadays, other characters do it way nastier and cheaper.

A key thing to keep in mind about Blanka that he is first and foremost a mobile character with a strong 50/50 mix-up game thanks to his throw, long-range sweep, various ways to avoid and punish projectiles spammers and hop move. His strengths does not lie in his combo ability, but in his ability to be an annoying douche to play against. It should be noted that if the opponent guess his mix-up correctly, Blanka will be punished HARD for it. Never be predictable.
