Favourite fighting move

Post by paranoid marvin » Mon Apr 10, 2006 4:13 pm

There are hundreds,if not thousands of fighting moves in all the beat em up games,but which is your favourite?

I think mine has to be E Honda's 'hundred hand slap'
a. because it does loads of damage when you pull it off and
b. because it one of the few moves I'm capable of pulling off every time!

I also loved the flying kick on WOTEF,along with the punch-looked really painful even on an 8-bit computer!

IK+ headbutt and Barbarian neck chop.

None of your SFII million button combo nonsense for this boy.

Has to be the fart on Chan and Chan on the PC Engine. Nothing like computer generated bowel movements to enhance playablity

For me it's Law's Run Up Drop from Tekken. It was that move in Tekken 1 back in 1994 that made me see how cool 3d fighters could be.

Yoshimitsu's sword pogo is worth an comedy mention too :)

Renegade on the spectrum, knee to the groin just for the sickening squelching noise.

Hmmmm hadn't thought of 3D fighters, Jeffrey's reverse back breaker from VF2 is proper paralysis inducing :o he has one from the front but nothing beats his one if the opponent is facing away

Has anyone ever managed to take out 2 opponents at the same time with the double-kick in IK+?
I always wanted to ,but never could

Yeah, I've done it a few times. I'd also like to nominate the various nasty tactics in By Fair Means or Foul, or if you are watching in Codemasters-vision, Pro Boxing Simulator ;)

Spinning neck chop from Barbarian.

Kneel down and punch the face of a fallen bad guy move from Renegade.

Knee to head / throw over shoulder from Double Dragon.

Frankensteiner throw by King in the Tekken games, + his tombstone piledriver and giant swing.

Any of the bone crunching punches and knee blows from Vannessa in Virtua Fighter 4 Evo.

Head butt, kneeling gut punch, and backward stepping high kick from IK+.

Flying Kick from Way of The Exploding Fist.

If there is one move guaranteed to censored off your opponent (and surely that is what it is all about) then it is Blanka's electricity.
Made all the more annoying for the fact that he doesn't actually do anything, he just crouches there waiting for some fool to leap on him... and they always do.
Follow it straight up with a fast roll to add insult to injury.

Either that of Barbarian's web-of-death, just because it seemed amazing that you could make your character do anything other than kick, punch or hack at the time.
