What would a sterotypical Up/Downplayer say about your character?

Title says it all, what would a sterotypical Up/Downplayer say about your character? For example:

Character: Killer Frost
Upplayer
"Safe low slide from 3/4 screen, one of the best characters in the game"
etc


Downplayer
"Free to jump back, very poor character"
etc


I just thought this would be a fun thing to do. It would be cool if we had characters from MK9 and Injustice, however I didn't know where to put the thread so I chose the more recent game.

gotta stay sharp!
Doomsday(this is easy)
-up player
All he has to really do is d1 es.
He always gets in for free
Es is unbelievably stupid online
Dawg..do you even know combos?
-down player
Trait is a bill
Can't do much without meter
If you can block es what do you really have?
Little combo potential
You get parried in trait..lawlz

lex sucks, slow, shitty dash/backdash, god of startup frames, startup on everything, trait increases damage taken if hit while starting up/cancelling, floaty stupid jump, no damage, setups are easy to avoid when you know them, slow everything, eats zoning all day - all round shitter

I was going to pick up Lex but screw that now, you've totally put me off... I think I'll pickup Aquaman or Batgirl, heard they were okay :DOGE

I haven't seen Grundy upplayers for a while.
Or maybe I've seen, but they were saying things typically reserved for downplayers, so I couldn't tell.

I'll be back 3ing
Upplayers are generally people that don't even use the character. That being said I still think Batman is top-tier based on the principle that when he has trait it's a one player game especially seen as the game has evolved beyond overpowered set-up spam and people actually play footsies

*Tear shed for Killer Frost* No way she couldn't be Top 5 with a safe advancing low launcher which also doubles up as an invincible wake-up. In any other game a character with Killer Frosts slide would be really good but the restrictions she has in a game like Injustice just makes her irrelevant

Flash upplayers be like: this broke he get in for free punishes for 60 percent and his mixups are inescapable and its always a 50 50

Normal flash players:

Up-player: His WC is insane and absorbs everything

Down-player: Grab immune strings make Grundy not playable.
 
I think its having the knowledge and experience of playing a character that gives a different opinion for each person. Flash is actually just an average character, he has some extremly punishable moves, and his backdash can be caught easily. But on the other end he can turn small combos into bigger combos with his trait.....and again his trait takes TWENTY SECONDS to recharge....sooo he is a pretty even character.....after all, even with the ability to do 60% damage when an opponent gets opened up, on knock-down it is merely a guessing game.....usually involving the same mix-ups from every high level flash player. Just learning how a character fights can help someone determine what a person thinks about the character.

probably should delete that as you're not quite a high level flash you're nice but you're not good y'know also this makes virtually no sense so yeah.

I only have major problems fighting ur flash for some reason.....idk why, but I can hang with Zyphox or Honeybee.......I just need to play u more so that I can adjust. And I meant that every character has some type of gimmick or setup that may make them overpowered, but instead of buffing everyone in the game besides MMH and Batgirl, how about we just nerf MMH and Batgirl a little bit so that there isn't a desire for every character to have the exact same type of bull crap that those 2 characters have. In other words, make everyone mid tier instead of trying to buff every single character in the game
