He also did the FGC the service of clipping a whole bunch of said moments, and has compiled them into a brilliant Twitter thread to help us relive the magic.

We've gone through and grabbed a handful of our favorites to share with you, most all of which are simply hilarious antics between players during or after intense tournament bouts.

While he's known as one of the most focused players to ever enter the competitive fighting game ring, Daigo Umehara has also been known to throw back a few during after hours.
