Dustin is an incredibly mobile character boasting a solid deal of movement options as well as lightning-quick attacks. His incredible speed is matched by a fighting style that is centered around rushing the opponent down and chaining together his moves to deal rapid damage, with his signature Wylde Fury technique being his bread-and-butter in many of his combos and his Style Action doubling as a viable mobility tool. Needless to say, all this mobility and speed in his attacks make Dustin one of the most ferocious fighters in the roster.

However, for all his speed and agility, his raw physical strength is rather lackluster and his range is practically non-existent, with his projectile - while quick in travel speed - taking some time to actually come out. In addition, many of his best setups are heavily reliant on having a decent amount of Action Gauge, especially if he wishes to dish out a larger amount of damage than he can without it. All of this means that, in order for him to overcome the competition, he must constantly stay on the opponent's face as he continues to apply pressure on them.
