If Dudley is part of Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's 'Season V' then could his Sway techniques from Omega Street Fighter 4 be useful?

Five characters are planned for Season V of Street Fighter 5. Although Dudley isn't one of the front-runners as far as speculation is concerned, we shouldn't write off his chances just yet.

It feels like Capcom has implemented a few ideas from Omega Street Fighter 4 while designing characters for Street Fighter 5 in the past. Perhaps Dudley's Omega Street Fighter 4 iteration will provide us clues on what Capcom might decide to do with Dudley in Street Fighter 5 if they choose to add him via Season V.

In the Street Fighter series, Dudley's play style often revolves around the usage of his Ducking technique. This essentially functions as a command dash forward that can transition into a couple of different attacks.

Dudley's Omega version, however, gives him the ability to perform the Sway and Sway Back specials. He'll either initiate a stance in place or dash backwards.

Players would then be able to react to what the opponent is doing and then transition into one of Dudley's punches. These specials look to be great for fishing for whiff punishes.

If the player in control of Dudley believes that the other player won't do anything, they can choose to command dash forward.
