sh/f Super Fireball Battle
This is the first video premiered at Evo2k10, before HDR finals on July 11th, 2010! The whole concept is projectiles interacting in elaborate and interesting ways. We tried to avoid inflicting damage to the characters, but sometimes we allowed them to get hit for dramatic effect.
Since the majority of these choreographed sequences are intuitive by design, it’s probably best to simplify the write-up by providing technical breakdowns only for the confusing parts.
0:07 SF3:3S Chun Li’s Kikou-sho acts as a stationary projectile, lasting long enough to wipe out Remy’s entire Light of Justice array.
0:10 CFE Demitri initiates this sequence by sending an ES Chaos Flare through Pyron’s LP Sol Smasher, establishing the numerical discrepancy perpetuated until the end.
0:12 SFA2 Ryus mix CC LP Hadokens and lvl1 Shinku Hadokens to create the illusion of chaos.
0:15 CvS Terry’s lvl1 Power Geyser and Kyo’s lvl1 Orochi Nagi both behave like standard single-hit projectiles, nullifying one another cleanly.
0:22 CFE Urien parries half of Shin Akuma’s Messatsu Gouhadou to provide him enough time to race it across the screen. Originally intended to serve as a placeholder, this clip took several hours to record even with Auto Parry enabled. We just ran out of time to replace it.
0:30 CvS2 N-Geese’s HP Double Reppuken blows out Dhalsim’s LP Yoga Fire and LP Yoga Flame, then Geese’s lvl3 Raging Storm wards off Dhalsim’s lvl3 Yoga Tempest.
0:40 GF Chun Li’s lvl3 Kikoken hits thrice while Ryu’s lvl2 Hadoken only hits twice, which means it takes three from Ryu to match two from Chun Li.
0:43 CvS2 C-Athena’s Crystal Shoot hits twice at lvl1 and thrice at lvl2, while K-Nakoruru’s lvl3 Shichikapu Kamui Irushika hits five times to wipe out both.
0:52 CvS2 K-Eagle’s Saint Andrews Green treats individual components of C-Kyosuke’s Cross Cutter and Super Cross Cutter as standard projectiles, reflecting them all simultaneously.
0:57 COTA Cyclops can superjump-cancel his s.HP and c.HP optic bullets. Sentinel’s s.MP and c.MP launch two rockets each, and his s.HP beam erases any projectiles it touches. Both characters are suki-canceling whenever possible. Cyclops’ s.HP nullifies the central orb of Sentinel’s Plasma Storm and his MP Gene Splice passes through the rest.
1:04 CvS2 P-Kim’s Spirit of Conquest Kick nullifies single-hit projectiles. It works on N-Terry’s LP Power Wave and lvl1 Power Geyser. It’s impossible to parry low while Auto Parry is on.
1:11 CvS2 K-Guile’s lvl3 Sonic Hurricane lasts exactly long enough to wipe out C-Morrigan’s lvl1 air Soul Phoenix and lvl2 Soul Phoenix.
1:14 VS Jedah’s ES Nero=Fautica negates Morrigan’s ES Soul Fist and ES air Soul Fist, then Jedah activates his Santu Arrio Dark Force to evade Morrigan’s Finishing Shower.
1:18 SF3:3S Urien’s HP Metallic Sphere and PPP Aegis Reflectors destroy most of Ibuki’s Kasumi Suzaku. He recovers in time to parry the remainder.
1:21 ST Dhalsim’s Yoga Inferno is immune to every projectile except another super fireball.
1:28 CvS2 N-Rock’s Raging Storm nullifies an unlimited number of projectile hits while active.
1:32 MvC2 Guile uses the counter bug to amass many instances of Charlie’s Sonic Break, then wipes them all out with a single Sonic Hurricane.
1:40 VS Anakaris can Inhale and Disgorge enemy projectiles – an ability he demonstrates against BB Hood’s j.HK mine and HK Smiling Missile.
1:54 SFA3 V-Rolento’s VC2 shadows continue animating throughout superfreeze. Every time A-Sakura initiates a super, they advance to generate another Stinger knife.
2:04 SF4 Rose was able to reflect her own fireball before the patch.
2:07 SFEX3 Darun’s Daikaku -> Jouju negates two of Ryu’s Shinku Hadokens.
2:28 MotW Hotaru’s Kobi Kyaku break reflects a few kunai from Hokutomaru’s Chou Hissatsu Shuriken. Hotaru then just defends the remaining kunai and guard cancels into Kobi Kyaku.
2:38 KoF98 Takuma’s Ko’ou Ken autoguards Rugal’s lvl3 Kaiser Wave. Then Rugal’s lvl2 Kaiser Wave hits Takuma right as he releases his lvl1 Haou Shikou Ken, which goes on to hit Rugal.
2:49 SFA3 X-Juni’s Psycho Streak summons Bison as a five-hit projectile.
3:15 MotW Kain’s brief backdash invincibility slips through Marco’s Haou Shoukou Ken.
3:22 VS Hsien-Ko’s Reflect Gong works on her own Weapon Throw. This mirror pair manages to keep a single Akuma statue afloat for almost ten seconds sans any repetition.
3:37 SFA2 Roses must both activate CC mode to play prolonged ping pong with an LP Soul Spark, because it accelerates considerably with each reflection.
3:40 CvS2 P-Sagat throws K-Iori right as he releases his lvl3 Ura 108 Shiki, altering its base position. The waves gradually decimate the lvl3 Tiger Cannon sent after them.
3:42 MvC2 Wolverine dashes clear through Magneto’s Magnetic Shockwave as well as under Sabretooth’s Birdie assist pellets.
3:50 IaMP Sakuyas collide Bounce/No-Bounce superjump-canceled into j.C canceled into air Ambitious Jack, followed by the time-release of Sense of Thrown Edge simultaneously with another Ambitious Jack. 46 knives to collide against 46 knives, totaling 92.
3:53 TMNT:TF Donatello’s Ryuu Hadou grants him invulnerability against Asuka’s slide, then Asuka uses Kochou no Mai to pass through the remaining Ryuu Hadou frames.
3:59 KoF2k2 Rugal’s LP Reppuken doesn’t dissolve until one frame after impact – long enough to interact with Rugal’s Dark Barrier, instantly being reflected and renewed.
4:01 T3 Paul and Law face off in Tekken Ball mode, using the iron ball.
4:05 ABK Murakumos reflect (parry) each other’s EX Denkou Jirai.
4:08 MBAA Aoko constructs a Floating Starmine array symmetrically with her mirror opponent. Both Aokos perform simultaneous Severe Breaks, setting everything off to conclude the video.
