I agree. It's really cool. It's a shame not all of them could have made it in - Jaina's using her bow for normals and blocks is something I really liked - but the ones that made it are all cool!
I've added Setsuki and Rook gifs to the OP by the way!
I'm still confused why Rook's special throw is called Checkmate Buster and his super Ultimate Checkmate Buster, when their animations are obvious references to Windmill Crusher and Checkmate Buster respectively. I also feel like "Checkmater Buster" sounds super enough on its own.
I heard they were originally called just that. I wonder why it was changed? For the sake of Potemkin references?
