Thought Giant Zangief was bad? This hacker also beats opponents with a miniaturized Master Ryu in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's ranked mode

While cheating in any game is usually something to frown upon, we can't help but laugh at RisingDragonGod's online antics. A self-proclaimed "infamous cheater" of Street Fighter 5, we've seen this particular user rob people of their points using Shin Akuma and a Gigantic Zangief.

Is it possible to upgrade from an enormous version of Zangief? Evidently, it is. The hacker was spotted using a miniaturized version of "The Master," or the boss version of Ryu. To top things off, he also gave himself infinite Critical Art gauge.

The latest clip pits RisingDragonGod against another Ryu user. However, this isn't simply a mirror match. RisingDragonGod's character doesn't even reach the height of the opponent's knee.

In other words, only an extremely small selection of attacks can even hit him. Fireballs will go directly over his head while he is able to freely pressure the other player with his own.

It also appears that the miniaturized Ryu has been greatly sped up. Before the fireball even reaches the opponent, he can dash in for free at lightning quick speeds.

Don't forget that this is the boss version of Ryu too. This grants him access to a far superior version of the parry and a second Critical Art — which RisingDragonGod has no qualms about using.
