Funny kid makes an impression on Daigo in Hong Kong with his 'intense' Ultra Street Fighter 4 play style

Posted by Cheng Kai 'KarbyP' Sim • August 3, 2014 at 10:15 a.m. PDT

This is just too good not to mention.

Last weekend, MCZ|Daigo was in Hong Kong to attend the Ani-Com and Games 2014 convention. While he was there, Sony hosted a stage activity where members of the general public could challenge the Mad Catz-sponsored player for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

Among the throng of convention attendees who went up on stage to play against Daigo, there was one challenger in particular -- a kid -- who left a deep impression on the The Beast.

You can watch the match the kid played against Daigo in the stream archive embedded below, beginning at the timecode 01:28:15 -- but the match itself isn't anything special.

What's truly noteworthy is the off-screen footage of the scrimmage between Daigo and the kid that a spectator at the convention captured on camera, which you'll find right below the stream archive.

For his valiant efforts in stepping up to the plate to take on The Beast, the kid gets to take home an official Street Fighter Mad Catz fight pad.

This is exactly what Justin Wong did during the Daigo Parry.

Daigo: "And all of a sudden the nicca turns into Jwong for some spectacular reason".

BornFreeEH said on August 3, 2014 at 10:28 a.m.

This kid knows Daigo listens to button inputs. So he's playing the meta game to the max. Kid has a future.

There is no way you watched that video. Daigo clearly didn't play seriously.

He almost did no uppercut, didn't react to anything even when the kid missed attacks, no FADC, no EX move, starting by LP and LK for reducing the combo damage, etc...

Gotomaster said on August 3, 2014 at 10:42 a.m.

Start at 1:21 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ9Kx... lol

Dude, I was kidding.

too crazy for stick. so they gave him a pad :(

#13
Projectjustice said on August 3, 2014 at 10:54 a.m.

This is why Daigo is such a likable person.

Guilessonicboom said on August 3, 2014 at 10:54 a.m.

Isn't that what all gief hawk n hakan players are like online?? Yes

#15
panzninja said on August 3, 2014 at 10:54 a.m.

Should have been using blanka or honda or just any mash character.

#16
sukurin said on August 3, 2014 at 11:01 a.m.

lol that kid is more active than his Hakan.

#17
TitleShot said on August 3, 2014 at 11:08 a.m.

Honda would have been perfect.

#18
Syirine said on August 3, 2014 at 11:09 a.m.

believe it or not but mashing works best with el fuerte.

#19
chocotaco said on August 3, 2014 at 11:13 a.m.

You think the Kappa would've tipped him off, right?

He's on the right path to become an online warrior.

#22
GiBGUN said on August 3, 2014 at 11:24 a.m.

Haha big time!

Someone REALLY needs to make a gif of that kid mashing so it can be used by stream monsters when mashing occurs for centuries to come.

#23
Sonneillon said on August 3, 2014 at 11:33 a.m.

Daigo looks like Jackie Chan in thumb. Lol

Yeah.

This is half grapplers on xbox.

ashelle1 said on August 3, 2014 at 11:43 a.m.

This is exactly how you play Hakan

#29
unrealboot1 said on August 3, 2014 at 11:49 a.m.

Yeah i agree it should be made into a gif and put on the steam. Also the hk host says after they finished playing "is the stick ok?" lol

Daigo's E. Ryu looks worse than before he just stood there instead of anti airing obvious jumpins and then he would just jab jab into nothing.

#31
BornFreeEH said on August 3, 2014 at 11:58 a.m.

So true. my favorite Street Fighter video :)

BornFreeEH said on August 3, 2014 at 12:01 p.m.

You are joking right? You must be. He's making the kid feel like it's a close match.
What's the point in whipping him with two perfects?

#33
KarbyP said on August 3, 2014 at 12:02 p.m.

Dayyum! It's actually a legit tech! /Kappa

Thanks!

#34
BornFreeEH said on August 3, 2014 at 12:06 p.m.

This is a Playstation event. I really hope they bring USF4 to the PS4 (properly, not this PS NOW streaming rubbish). It would give me a reason to trade up.

#35
FuriouS said on August 3, 2014 at 12:17 p.m.

That's how John Choi managed to beat Daigo too

#36

No problem. :)

MASH TILL IT WORKS!

#38
MonkeyCha0s said on August 3, 2014 at 12:33 p.m.

@Syirine #19 That is false. I see no ”Kappa” or any other signs of sarcasm so I assume you are actually being serious which is...sad.

#39
Sasuga said on August 3, 2014 at 12:40 p.m.

Omg, I laughed so hard.

#40
sarif2soon said on August 3, 2014 at 12:52 p.m.

There's one word I'd use to describe some people on here: Whoosh.

As in "Whoosh, that went right over their heads".

#41
BreadAndButter said on August 3, 2014 at 12:53 p.m.

Rare footage of Daigo actually laughing.

this

#43
Simeon said on August 3, 2014 at 1:02 p.m.

If it says Kappa at the end, it's not serious.

#44
xShonuffx said on August 3, 2014 at 1:09 p.m.

Dude, im pretty sure he let the kid get some licks in. It was clear the kid didn't know how to play from the beginning but he didn't want to be a dick and just face roll him so he let him play a bit.

You think losing to a kid takes anything away from him? There are a lot of Professional sports athletes who play some games with kid fans and let them get shots on them. its about letting them have fun. People look up to him, I think Daigo understands that, unlike you apparently.

#45
AKumahMatata said on August 3, 2014 at 1:12 p.m.

he did do some good moves at times there. GGs

#46
xShonuffx said on August 3, 2014 at 1:12 p.m.

Nice one but its not really that rare anymore. Daigo was laughing when he lost to John Choi at Evo, you know, the same match at EVO everyone thought Daigo lost due to lag or something of the matter? He was quite happy about the challenge.

Daigo is genuinely a happy person but you don't get to see that when most vids just show his matches and not him playing.

#47
Wintry said on August 3, 2014 at 1:23 p.m.

Daigo's imitating the kid with the crazy motions needs to be gif'ed.

Nice to see Daigo letting that kid win the prize.

#53
COREY_1993 said on August 3, 2014 at 2:04 p.m.

daigo was probably planning on letting him win but he jsut didnt know how to play hahha. in the end he just wanted to end and give teh kid the prize hahaha

#54
CapcockSucka said on August 3, 2014 at 2:23 p.m.

Did anybody here notice they gave the kid a STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN controller after he was done playing? I just thought that was funny since you know.......this is an Ultra Street Fighter IV event lol.

#55
put_Garuda_in_SFIV said on August 3, 2014 at 2:41 p.m.

No one wants anything related to that game

#56
Shozuhn said on August 3, 2014 at 2:42 p.m.

That controller they gave him looks like the same type Snake Eyez uses. If the kid likes grapplers... probably a pretty smart gift!!

#59
sweetmonkeylove said on August 3, 2014 at 2:53 p.m.

I don't understand what's so funny?

Are you making fun if the way I play stick? The stick play was totally high level legit. I saw 8 button tech, 8 button plink, standing 1440s...they destroyed the video with inputs. Too much tech.

Daigo shouldn't have been trying to look at the kids buttons. Kid saw Daigo cheating so he adjusted.

So is the joke the SFxT pad? Now that was some funy s**t!!

#60
sweetmonkeylove said on August 3, 2014 at 2:55 p.m.

He's gonna break that pad 2 minutes into his match with Poongko.

They should have realized he needs a stick made with a .25" steel case...bolted to the floor.

#61
Green016 said on August 3, 2014 at 3:04 p.m.

This kid would be the number one Hakan on PSN. That's how most play online, I'm sure of it.

#62
Eldriken said on August 3, 2014 at 4:12 p.m.

0:41 in the video = LOL

shmickmik said on August 3, 2014 at 4:14 p.m.

That kid only lost because of the input lag, some random Japanese player on Twitter told me so.
