The point of this thread is to get this forum back in motion. I'd hate to see fellow E21 fans disappear, after looking for them for so long.
I've listed four notable RBs and I wanna know what others think about which ones the best. Personally I'd say Yamato. I mean does that .01 seconds of difference in the 40-yard-dash of his and Sena's really matter? If i remember correctly it was stated somewhere that his speed is in the 4.4-4.3 range? and the Caesar's charge brings it up to like 4.1-3.9? either it was stated or I'm just making up stuff... ... I just believe the fact that he can gain so much extra yardage after being tackled that it just makes Sena's 4.2 look like a baby's run. Actually I think that Yamato and Panther are equal in running since Panther has shown to be extremely capable more than once. Well anyways who do you think's the best?

The Cearser's Charge really only affects his 40 time when he's going for a diving forward tackle. Doesn't really affect his running speed.
But yeah, Yamato's probably the most effective runner in the series. With him at fullback and Panther at halfback, gaining yardage shouldn't be an issue.
Yamato probably doesn't run faster than a 4.4. Remember that Shin was known as the fastest high schooler in Japan at 4.4 seconds in 40-yards. Assuming Yamato was still attending school and taking part in the tournament you can probably say his speed is at Riku's level. But he's the best balanced back out there. Panther is the best elusive back but I'd rather go with Yamato.
he's a balanced player, he can be a lot stronger too, or at least I think....
he was playing not even a year and was still impressive now with some extra training he will rockz everyone
Either way, Yamato didn't just come back from America the moment he was introduced. He was around longer than that.

accidentally voted panther but i'd go with yamato... his power running will be a lot harder on defenders than that extra bit of speed, especially in the nfl
i'd take a marion barber (tackle breaker) over a joseph addai (speed runner) any day.... he gets you more
I went with Sena. He's beaten almost everyone except for Panther who's his ultimate rival. Even with everything not going his way, he found a way. Of course, he's the Big Deus Ex but it was fun watching him progress and beat even the most difficult opponent in Yamato with only his speed.
And no, his balance isn't perfect. He's always eventually taken down. If that wasn't the case he'd score on every down.
I also take into consideration the Teikoku match where someone comments that Yamato had the power of Gaou and the average speed of Sena, which I think is around 4.5 seconds. Yamato himself made a comment that Sena was a little bit faster than him and I think running a 4.5 is still pretty fast even if he isn't at Sena's speed.
