Point Character
Point Character

Technical Definition-In team based games, the character on the team that starts the match. A point character will usually function well without meter, build meter well, and be the most dangerous when they have access to multiple assists. The point character is meant to set up favorable situations for the rest of the team either by killing the opposing point character or by building significant meter for teammates to use to kill opposing characters. A point character whose main function is to build meter is known as a battery. The phrase "on point" is also used to refer to character that is active at the current time e.g. "Justin Wong is great with Storm on point."

In Other Words-Similar to a leadoff hitter in a baseball lineup. The leadoff hitter and point character serve similar purposes to their teams. Both a leadoff hitter and a point character are meant to set up advantageous situations for their team to cash in on, with leadoff hitters reaching base and getting into scoring position so their team can bat them in and point characters either disrupting the other team or building resources for their own team.

Zero is a powerful point character. His mix ups when backed by two assists are some of the best in the game.
