BS moments in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax: Rise's reverse timer scam, Naoto's 100% damage combo, double KOs & more

Does the timer not pause when Rise Kujikawa activates her Risette: Live on Stage Awakened SP Skill? That move can take a really long time to complete when Skill Boosted (C+D instead of C or D).

In any case, watch what happens when a Rise player lands her Awakened SP Skill when there's 10 seconds left on the clock. The move can technically be used for timer scamming, but you have to be careful with it, as the first clip in Greek Angel's 'Persona 4 Ultimax: Ultra BS Hold' clips compilation shows.

Other "BS" moments featured here include a hilarious double KO scenario, Mitsuru's godlike sidestep, Naoto's instant-kill combo, a 100% damage Narukami Yu combo and much more.
