Momentum is a powerful thing in fighting games. Things can very quickly spiral out of control for a player with just one sequence.

If one is not careful, said player will lose their entire health bar despite having a huge advantage in a match. This tends to be the nature of fighting games.

LiangHuBBB has created a series titled "Rip Life Bar" that depicts many of these moments. We often see a near full health bar completely depleted in a matter of seconds.

Keep in mind that these don't necessarily have to be 80 - 90% damage combos. A large number of these sequences actually utilize several resets that the opponent was not able to defend against.

Sequences shown are for Ultra Street Fighter 4, Tekken 7, King of Fighters 13, and King of Fighters 14. In the cases of Akuma and Geese Howard in Tekken 7, these characters have the ability to perform combos — without resets — that pretty much destroy a character at full health.
