Eduardo "PR Balrog" Pérez is a Puerto-Rican-American fighting game player.


Eduardo employs a mercurial style, known for shifting between intense aggression and intimidating defense multiple times in a single round. He is known for taking pivotal risks at high-stakes moments in tournaments and having them pay off. In any game he plays, he seems to embody this style, making his matches feel entertaining, intuitive and unpredictable. While he is famous for his Balrog play in Ultra Street Fighter IV, he also had a capable Evil Ryu.

He has shifted between Vega, Laura and Necalli in Street Fighter V, and seems to have finally settled on maining Balrog upon the character's release.
