MOV, one of the GOAT 3rd Strike players, played Ken at EVO and there's an extremely strong player from High Desert who got Top 32 using him (frequently plays at WNF).

I main Sakura myself (who is top tier herself and potentially better than both), so I couldn't really care less

I can dig that Sakura is better than both because I've been walked by plenty of people sporting her. IMHO I do believe that both Ken & Ryu are somewhat underpowered & if it wasn't for Ken's ultra combo's he'd have been cannon fodder.

But I started using Guyle & Balrog & I must say that they are way stronger than the red & white twins!!
