Relationship (Ryo)- The two are best friends.
Relationship (Yuri Sakazaki)- Robert is in love with his best friend's little sister.
Enemy (Mr. Big, Geese Howard)
Responsibility (His Parents' Business)
Weakness (Predictability)- SNK Characters cannot simply "spam" out the same attack over and over again, as the opponent will expect the attacks, and be ready for them (and a counterattack). The third time they try the same technique (or same combo of techniques) in a short span, they will be at -2 to Accuracy, AND to his Active Defenses in that round. All will decrease by 2 every successive round the same move is done.
Total: Abilities: 56 / Skills: 60--30 / Advantages: 14 + 11 / Powers: 9 / Defenses: 15 (135)
-Robert is pretty much a rip-off of Ken, like Ryo was of Ryu; being the smirker, smart-assed variant of the main character, and his best buddy AND rival. Capcom was so annoyed at SNK for these rip-offs that they created Dan Hibiki, the joke character of the Street Fighter Alpha series, specifically to poke fun at Ryo & Robert. In fact, Dan looks identical to Robert, but wearing a ridiculous PINK gi, and uses the moves of both characters, but useless versions. He even has a t-shirt under his gi like Ryo does! Robert eventually got shuffled REALLY badly to the background of SNK games after the AoF series died, so he's in every King of Fighters ever in the "AoF Team", but his narrative hasn't moved forward in fourteen years, leaving him a permanent rival to Ryo, and never winning anything. He was at least the most-important character of Art of Fighting 3, however, on the chase for some girl he once knew.
-I gotta say though- dude has STYYYYYYYYYLE. It's especially notable because despite not dressing anything REMOTELY like a martial artist, he's managed to have the biggest possible effect on latter SNK characters- nearly the entire franchise would eschew "traditional outfit guys" like Ryo, and instead focus on pretty people in stylish clothes. The amount of SNK characters wearing flares pants and designer outfits is hilarious, and it all started with Robert.
-Robert, being the "Ken", has mostly the same moves as Ryo, but they're adjusted to match his kick-based offense instead (later KoF games would make him more of a Kickboxer type, tweaking him against all the other Shotoclones in the series). So he's got powerful kicks (a flying Dragon Kick is pretty cool), a Fireball (it's orange and Capcom-like versus Ryo's big, tall ones), and he kicks alot in his combos. He's more charismatic and jovial than Ryo, but lacks his Will Save and Motorbike. They are pretty much exact equals in combat, though- Robert has canonically defeated Mr. Big (Ryo beat Mr. Karate), and won the third Art of Fighting, defeating both Sinclair & Wyler.
