Hundreds of hands, hits, and headbutts; Desk makes it look like he got to write his own frame data for E. Honda in Street Fighter 5

Not literally hundreds... don't be that guy

The last of the World Warriors has finally made it onto Street Fighter 5's character select screen, and that means an all-new combo video from Desk.

While most of us are still trying to figure out how to adjust to four-input Hundred Hands Slap, Desk has already figured out some ridiculous trade combos, cancel sequences, and other crazy ways to beat up people in style with Honda.

Honda's V-Trigger 1 gives him the ability to charge up his headbutt for an armor break not unlike how Abigail's V-Trigger 2 operates. What happens when both of these fully-charged attacks clash? Desk has one possible answer.

The combo master includes a quick comment along with his latest video. "Fun! V-Skill properties change and can recover much quicker if you destroy a fireball just before hitting the opponent. Also, awesome to have a character who actually relies on multi button inputs for his specials."

It's little nuances like this that Desk's nose has been so expertly fine-tuned to find. We haven't had the character out yet for even a full 24 hours and he's already so far ahead than most others in his exploration.

Give the video a watch via the embed below and then chime in to the comments section with your reactions. Have you figured out anything cool with Honda or the other newcomers yet? Feel free to share that as well.
