With no assists or Sparking Blast, Tien can perform a solo touch of death in Dragon Ball FighterZ but at the cost of a lot of meter and vitality

Tien in Dragon Ball FighterZ is capable of dishing out tons of damage by himself as he has two very powerful level 3 supers at his disposal. The Neo Tri-Beam super can be made to inflict even more damage by expending additional bars of meter and Tien's health bar.

As such, it's possible to perform a touch of death combo using Tien without any assists or Sparking Blast. Xiao recently posted a clip on how to do this.

Why Mileena's Kiss of Death Fatality is so important to who she is as a Mortal Kombat character

Mileena isn't the most recognizable Mortal Kombat character, but within the fighting game community she has a fan base that exudes a passion (sometimes disrespectfully and therefore inappropriately) like few other characters can boast. The controversy surrounding her lack on inclusion in Mortal Kombat 11 has been surprisingly potent, and with her now officially en route to the game as DLC, I find myself wondering exactly why and how she's struck such a chord and garnered such a rabid following.

I find a lot of significance in the duality of her identity as she's simultaneously sexy bae and the horrific monster under your bed. Juxtapose these two themes in the right way and you have yourself a figure who fans clearly can't get enough of, and it just so happens that Mileena has one move in particular, her Kiss of Death Fatality, that stands as a perfect manifestation of the combo of sex and violence that the character represents.

642 damage and a tricky side switch, Javits shows us a cool combo with Gill in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Gill is so far the only character in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition without Crush Counters. In place of Crush Counters, Gill instead benefits from the ability to inflict a freezing or burning status effect on opponents with certain attacks. This is quite important for Gill's unique Retribution system.

While Gill might not be recognized as the best character in Street Fighter 5 at the moment, his combos are among the flashiest. Javits has recently posted yet another cool combo using Gill.
