Poison, Lucia, and E. Honda can do some wacky stuff in Street Fighter 5 and Desk shows how with these 'very stupid combos'

With the release of Street Fighter 5's latest DLC characters, combo video extraordinaire Desk brought to us solo showcases for all three. Poison, Lucia, and E. Honda were seen performing stylish and impressive sequences in that classic Desk style, but the experimentation from the combo wizard has yet to cease.

While making those three combo exhibitions, Desk took notes on some of the oddities that these characters are capable of. Today, we have a full-on combo video featuring all three fighters and their "very stupid combos," according to Desk.

The combos here entail strange trades with projectiles to interrupt attacks and continue the sequence, hits facing the wrong direction, and quite a bit more.

For Lucia, we see a sequence that has her throw out an EX fireball, then Nash teleporting behind her with his V-Trigger. From there, the newcomer hits a standing medium punch facing the wrong direction, carries Nash over to the fireball that's still on screen, and continues the extended combo from there.

Honda's antics involve using his V-Skill — which eats one-hit projectiles — to clap the fire orb of Dhalsim's V-Trigger 2 as it sits right in front of him. Doing so makes for another long combo, which ends with a hard-hitting Critical Art.

As for Poison, we get to see a bit more of what her high-flying V-Skill can do when coupled with V-Trigger 1 molotovs. Also, keep an eye out for the combo in which she uses trades with Urien's Aegis Reflector as it is particularly impressive.
