I wouldn't consider him dudebro. Dudebro's to me are charecters like RE5 Chris, and to an even further extent I guess I'd say Gears of War type characters. I actually am in the minority in liking Nero. I thought Nero was a wonderfully designed character and I was fine with his personality, too. The guy from Scalebound... hmm, it's actually kinda hard to describe. I feel like they might be going with a classic Dante or Nero type attitude but his looks don't really fit that imo. To me he just looks too plain I think. Just your areverage everyday white dude but with pre-mature white hair. Dante and Nero look cool with white hair, plus there's a reason for it. This guy just strikes me as my next door neighbor in his 20's who unfortunately went gray too early and looks a little too old for his age because of it, and acts less mature than his appearance suggests. lol, best I can do as far as describing what I dislike about it. But who knows, he could grow on me depending on how his character is written. However, from the videos that have been shown so far, I don't see that happening. I don't think it would hurt to give him a little more personality looks wise, though. The right arm is a good try in doing so, I guess, but it's also a tad bit too Nero. There are also the cheesy facial expressions:
I completely agree with cheesy expressions, though. And his personality seems quite annoying so far.
