Desk's Lucia turns opponents into hacky sacks with projectile juggles for days, ridiculous fireball sequences, and more

Throw fireball, jump and spike Dhalsim down onto fireball, proceed to juggle for another 12 hits...

Lucia was widely unexpected for a Street Fighter 5 reveal but seems to be holding her own relative to E. Honda and Poison as the SF5 community is finding her to be quite a flashy and efficient character in these early stages of exploration.

At least when it comes to combos, no one figures these fighters out faster or more intricately than Desk. The stylin' and profilin' YouTuber has produced a video showcasing Lucia and the crazy and flashy potential she has.

This Metro City cop is primarily about juggle kicking and setting foes on fire, so she's more or less perfect for Desk's purposes here. Her run mechanic and relatively high hit-count basic combos make for some pretty impressive extended sequences.

Her projectiles see her manifest a small fireball with her foot and then follow up by kicking it at various arcs towards her opponents. If she does this while close up in the corner she can actually juggle her opposition for a few extra hits.

Pair this with trade combo potential, V-Trigger activations, delayed projectile hits, and the other crazy interactions that Desk somehow comes up with, and you have yourself a very entertaining showcase.

Check out the full presentation below, and if you like what you see here then be sure to peep Desk's SF5 E. Honda video.
