I realize that not every mechanical interaction has to have a coherent 'flavor' (in fact, that would be basically impossible in a game this complex), but there are a few gaps in my imagination that come up a lot.

One of them is: What does a Grasp look like when a style lets it hit beyond range 1, especially if the Grasper chooses to move the opponent *closer* to them?

I'm not sure why I accept that every single fighter has some kind of fireball-- this is a fighting game, after all!-- but get hung up on not being able to picture what a Gunner Grasp by Rukyuk looks like.

Anyway, I'm curious what, if anything, other people imagine when they play ranged Grasps.

I always imagine something similar to Scorpion's harpoon if it's really far away. If it's only 2 spaces away, I figure they reach out with their weapon (like Vanaah) or they might strech out to pull them in.

You could imagine they just stagger forward. Or in other cases, visualize Dhalsim. Or just a shockwave that pulls them closer or something obviously magical.

With characters like Kehrolyn or Lixis, I could imagine them using tentacles or grasping vines that grow from the ground, respectively.

Gunner Grasp = rapid covering fire /spray&pray that makes the target move forward in search of cover
