Gouki's Raging Demon is pretty special but this..this is FILTH!

Woof! :shock:

I'm quite fond of Alex's headbutt, it's just back and HP. Simple yet painful ^_^

It's better seeing the recoil off the other guy though, ouch almost describes it :P

If you want to peruse the other characters here's the website. not everything has been done though :\\

Pah

Meh

Bah

:roll:

I'd swap all of that bollox for SFII CE combo:

Deep fierce flying kick (possible cross up) into strong sweep into jab rising dragon punch - the beauty of it is that into a fierce dragon punch would almost certainly dizzy, but you don't need a dizzy - ultimate put down :wink:

fact 8)

Bloody 3rd tripe - I wish I could see 3rd tripe as you do, you obviously see it as I see SFII CE and thats no small thing :wink:

Always enjoyed seeing Zangeif's 360-degree pile driver, a bugger to execute though!

Also fond of Guile's Sonic Boom, with the cool "Sonic Boom" sound FX - boy did I shout "Sonic Boom" a lot as I was kicking my little bro's head in! The ironic thing is that it's actually quite a slow "projectile", not exactly supersonic!

Finally, Mortal Kombat's Scorpion's move where he throws the knife-on-a-rope thingy and uses it to reel in his opponent, accompanied by a cry of "Get over here!"... class!
GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!

I've always been partial to a good old uppercut.

The dragon punch, took me ages to get my head around how to perform it back in the day of SF2 - it's a move that's earned with perseverance. Once you have that move in your arsenal though it's a skill that never leaves you and is useful in nearly every 2D fighter since.

Zangief's spinning pile driver is also great because it's so ridiculous. It's also the ultimate insult when you beat someone using it!

Jacky's Lightning Kick from the Virtua Fighter series was brilliant. His fighting style was very much based on Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do (or Way of the Intercepting Fist).

The uppercut from Panzer Kick Boxing on the Amiga was an absolute belter. So was the spinning punch.........

Tekken 2, Juns 10-11 hit combo that wasent in any of the practice parts of the game or on the combo lists. It was the only combo i could do without being in the practice arena.
My Uncle has the world record for highest score on Missile Command!

- The Chun Li bird kick and her thousand leg thing.

- Virtua Fighter, Akiras double kick.

- Tekken:
- Yoshimitsu's first 10 hit combo. It ended with him diving head first, then feet first and then hand-standing the opponent into the air.

- Paul Phenoix's head chop, ankle swing, then elbow jab. Nice because it was a high hit, low hit and then middle hit. Tough to always block.

- Asuka Kazama 10 hit combo, it's very like Jun Kazama's from Tekken 2, but it's flexible enough to be altered at the appropriate point if necessary. IMHO she is the best character ever in Tekken. She can string moves together really well.

- I always used to enjoy a Street Fighter 2 fireball stand-off. Two opponents faced each other and then they fireball and counter-fireballed each other until one person messed it up.
