The Street Fighter 5 community has now had some ample time to explore the three new characters that made their way onto the roster on Sunday, and hot damn are they looking interesting.

Honda, Lucia, and Poison have been just about everywhere we look as players figure out and share combos, set ups, and general tech with all three. We've rounded up a good fistfull of said content to share with you today in one convenient place.

We've got a good variety of findings here in both clip and full video form. If you're looking for basic bread and butter sequences, we've got you covered on all three character fronts.

If you're looking to see how some of the professional players are approaching these newcomers, we have videos showcasing VP|Momochi playing Lucia, RISE|Smug trying out Honda, and various high-level online competitors using Poison.

There's some more specific or situational tech from figures like Bafael, who shows us how Honda can actually punish V-Reversals if either of his V-Triggers is active. This is thanks to the fact that both give the character a hit of super armor and can cancel from so many of his moves.

First you'll find a series of shorter clips, below that are videos for each of the three latest DLC fighters. Let us know if you learned anything of particular note in the comments once you're done.
