It's been 10 years since Street Fighter 4 broke out onto the scene and lead the charge into an all new chapter for the fighting game community that would see the competitive scene go through a rejuvenation and then reach all new heights.

The BEAST has compiled a handful of epic rounds from Capcom Cup 2015 as the strongest players in the world gave USF4 a proper send off.

This event included the likes of CYG|Daigo Umehara, GGP|Kazunoko, CYG|Snake Eyez, Misse, Infiltration, RZR|Xian and many more top competitors playing absolutely out of their minds.

I chose one moment in particular to highlight first because it made the hair on the back of my arms stand up the most. It involves CYG|Snake Eyez and then-widely unknown player Keoma.

Snake was one of the absolute most dominant players of the time while Keoma was a relatively fresh face that had qualified via the Latin American leg of the Pro Tour. All bets were on Snake to win, and it truly seemed as though he would when he went up with a quick 2-0.

With only a pixel of life left in his health bar, Keoma pulled off the following sequence that would begin his even greater comeback of stealing the set away from Snake.
