EVO moment #37 performed on DDR mat?! 'Let's Go Justin!' compilation showcases multiple players recreating the classic moment in and out of battle

If you've been a part of the fighting game community for at least a month, chances are you've probably seen or at least heard of EVO moment #37. This classic moment features an incredibly hype match between the two titans, MCZ|Daigo Umehara and EG|Justin Wong, in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike in which Daigo successfully pulled off a complete parry of Justin's super and finished the round with a devastating combo.

Today, SFIII3rdStrike uploaded a compilation video of many different players, using characters other than Ken, having their very own EVO moment #37. We also get to see someone successfully perform the parry against Chun-Li using what appears to be a Dance Dance Revolution mat, Desk's reenactment against himself and a bit of Nuki's legendary hype commentary thrown in there.

That wasn't an Evo Moment on DDR mat, it was just the parry. If he did the Ken combo, that would be impressive.

Othe than that, nice compilation of parries.

Wong will forever be branded by this one moment for the rest of his life. The Beast took his soul from that point on

Yes, because FADC makes everything safe. It takes all the risk out, which in turn makes it far worse than parries. Skill > FADC. On another note, does anyone remember what that song is from? It's bugging me.

I swear that this is from some DBZ film. I just can't for the life of me remember.

But yeah, this video is amazing lol

On a DDR mat? In Dave Chappelle's voice-"...word..."

SF3's Parries are an interesting gameplay mechanic and an extremely exciting one at that.

All I see is people properly parrying Chun's SA and punishing. Not sure why that's always considered an "EVO MOMENT #37".

You wouldn't notice pure skill even if it hits on your head lol.

@7 what's wrong with you? Every time I see you on an article you don't have anything constructive or positive to say. Why waste your time? If you don't like parrys you obviously don't like sf3 so why are you wasting time leaving a comment?

There are other evo moments people could be making a big deal of.

AAARRGGHHHH!!!!11!!, that beat from that song is so damn familiar. I think it was a SNES game or maybe it was DBZ Movie, although i just ran through all of em fast (yes, i own em all lol) and i didnt hear it.
@17. . .
What other big ones? Only other one i can think of is Justin's comeback in marvel 2. Could use Infrit going for the Sentinel infinite and blowing it. Therefore failchamp wins evo 2012.

I'm pretty sure the beat is from Megaman X, thinking #1 but not sure

Had they have did a Gigas Breaker after that parry, I would have lost my stuff even more!

@9 @18 The ending song for the Metal Cooler movie. It made the video x10 better :)

@24. .
Hmm ok, i shoulda checked the Jp language track on that movie. I'm still thinking that background beat is From MMX. DBZ and Megaman share alot of sound effects, so music wouldn't surprise me.

If it's so easy to parry and punish that super... why do Chun-Li players still use it? Yeah, it might be her most effective super in the game during a combo, but that EVO moment exposed one Hell of a weakness to it.

@19
No it does not shut down poking, although it does remove projectiles from any significance. 3S is still very poking and spacing oriented.

Why does EVO moment #37 characterize gaming? I have 1.5 million reasons...

Plus, Killian <a href="http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/the-beast-is-unleashed-capcoms-seth-killian-explains-the-most-famous-minute">wrote an essay on it</A>. Don't like it? Go become a philosophy professor and switch to gaming...

Pro Tip: Don't ever try raw SA2 against a Japanese guy.

Nuki's commentary will forever crack me up.

parrying on a ddr pad? welp....that totally took a crap on my parrying skill.

#38
Yousend said on June 6, 2013 at 8:33 a.m.

When I read "EVO moment #37 on DDR pad" I was interested because I expected the combo at the end... Just the parry is kind of uninteresting considering you only press forward and there's way harder things to do in DDR.

#39
JDinc said on June 6, 2013 at 9:35 a.m.

yeah the DDR thing sounds impressive but then you see it and realise that real DDR is much harder than what he did.

Undead_Hayabusa said on June 6, 2013 at 10:27 a.m.

what is more impressive now? the parry feat itself or the circumstances in which said parry was performed..

#41
Jayson619 said on June 6, 2013 at 12:31 p.m.

Hahaha...!!!

Daigo > Justin Wong

#42
Hayabusa_San said on June 6, 2013 at 1:11 p.m.

It is impressive how this full parry + finishing combo from Daigo is recognized as one of the best moments in Fighting game history. Considering the setting (back in 2004), the local factor (Justin was the favorite) and the never seen tech, Daigo took the world in surprise with his cold thinking and fine reflex, even when the pressure was on his shoulders.

Sure, today anyone can do this to some degree (and you even have it as a trial on 3SO), but remember that back them it was a pretty awesome display of skills, and that's why it remains as a great moment in gaming history.
