Unplayable fighting game bosses have a special way of invoking certain emotions from players. Usually this emotion is pure hatred... Some characters we just love to hate.

Capcom was able to capture these type of feelings towards a boss perfectly with the release of the Shadow Lady Extra Battle in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. As this challenge will be ending tonight at 8 p.m. PDT, Capcom has compiled some clips of notable streamers attempting to take on the Shadow Lady.

There are plenty of moments where the streamers are shocked at what they are witnessing on screen. This particular enemy is able to string attacks seamlessly, as though she were in a Marvel vs. Capcom title.

Eventually though, some were able to defeat the opponent. In a few cases, time was an important factor. Remember that the player will automatically lose should the timer run out, even if they have the life lead.

For one notable competitor, he attempted the fight one time, then basically said "I'm good" before quitting the Extra Battle mode. This ended up being a rather amusing sequence thanks to his personality.

Like with other boss fights, there are those that are able to discover ways of exploiting the A.I. AutoMattock, for example, figured out how to defeat the Shadow Lady as Sagat with a perfect.

Be advised that there is some NSFW language ahead.
