Pro Street Fighter 5 player beats his opponent with a booger

Former EVO champion Xian shows no mercy with Birdie online

Have you ever beaten your opponent so badly in a fighting game that they just stand there and let you get the most ridiculous KO ever? Well, professional Street Fighter 5 player RZR|Xian has, and he managed to capture the footage.

Kun Xian Ho, as he's known in the world outside of gaming, took Street Fighter 5 launch character Birdie into battle online against an Ibuki player during one of his recent live streams. Typically, Xian would be the one using Ibuki — as she is his current main character — but this time it looked like he was just trying to have fun with some of Birdie's various tools.

"Laggy! It's too laggy," Xian exclaimed as he clobbered his foe with a couple of Birdie's giant standing heavy punches at mid-range. The EVO 2013 Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition v2012 champion proceeded to go on a tear, landing several quick combos back-to-back and stunning the Ibuki.

One final combo is all Xian needed to close out the round, but instead of his final sequence scoring the knock out, it left the opponent alive with just a sliver of health. After taking such a rough beating, the Ibuki player seemingly decided that victory was unattainable, and instead just stood there hitting crouching light punch nowhere near Xian.

"One chance! Booger! Please!" the pro Street Fighter competitor yelled at the screen in hopes that his opponent would indeed let him land the coveted "booger KO." In Street Fighter 5, Birdie is portrayed as a bit of a slob, and when he stands perfectly still on screen for about 10 real-life seconds he will flick a booger at his foe that deals a tiny bit of damage.

As luck would have it, Xian was given the chance to win the round using Birdie's booger toss.

I can't decide what I like more: the KO itself or Xian's incredibly hype pop off after he lands it. You can see both below, but be warned that this clip has some language NSFW.
