This video cost Desk three days and 39,000 Fight Money to make, but the end result is a history lesson surrounding the increasingly interesting Shadow Lady Chun-Li.

This "new" boss character popped up last week in Street Fighter 5's Extra Battle menu and has been garnering attention left and right because of her absolutely over the top abilities. Not only is she extremely fast and able to hit extremely hard, but she's also got moves we've never seen before... except that we totally have... all the way back in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.

Shadow Chun's extended air combos make a whole lot more sense with this bit of information in mind, as, indeed, many players' first reactions were simply to point out "how Marvel vs. Capcom she looks" upon seeing the AI control her here in SF5.

Fused with special Shadaloo technology (because of course she is) Shadow Chun is capable of such special techniques as the Miracle Drill, Plasma Barrier, Rainbow Missiles, and a Raging Demon-like finisher called the Final Mission.

Desk takes us back to the first Versus game to see footage of the secret character in her original iteration so as to compare her to her updated, but extremely honest to the source material, version here in 2019.

While he doesn't get to control her directly (someone get this man the mod so we can see what he'd come up with) we still do get to see a pretty stellar showcasing of most all that she can do. Give the video below a watch and sound off with your reactions in the comments.
