How come I don't see him anywhere in tournaments yet theres people picking other top tiers, is Kano really a top tier character?

Kano is highly underused in tournaments. There use to be some players who used him but they haven't been around in a while or are too far from where the tournaments happen the most, and he was widely used way back in the day when you could still get random arcade action. And of course, a lot of people don't use him online because he's much harder to use online than his actual difficulty represents. Kano is an awesome character.

Ease of use does factor into the tier list, and he isn't the easiest. But just because people don't use him doesn't mean that he isn't capable.

If I come to NEC this year, I'll try to bring a good Kano :) Some strong players said that Sonya and Kano are my best characters so I'll probably play them in tournaments.

Just to make sure, this is not a MK9 thread, but a UMK3 one! Kano is great in UMK3.
