Victrix|Yusuke Momochi has long been one of the best Street Fighter players in the world having won Capcom Cup in the past and tons of other massive events though he's recently been splitting his attention with a different big title.

The professional fighting game player has been streaming a lot of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as of late trying to learn the game with his boy Ken, and now Momochi has put together a hilarious compilation of his best plays and worst mishaps while playing the game online making the typically calm player leap out of his chair multiple times.

Much of the video focuses in on the disparity between his combo execution and recovery skills, as apparently not all of his traditional fighting game knowledge transfers directly over to Smash.

Momochi may have a bit of a problem fighting Jigglypuff of all characters considering we see him get hit with Sing twice as he tried to mash himself awake again and Rest. He does apologize in the description for all the yelling he does.

Since traditional fighting games don't require players to recover back to stages, that aspect of Momochi's gameplay seems to be among his weakest as we see him simply fall or mess up his recoveries quite a few times.

On the positive side, combo execution clearly carries over with Momochi showing off multiple shield break sequences, a 75 percent damaging combo, kill confirms and some great reactions / parries.

You can check out Momochi's extremely entertaining match compilation below where he even gets some wisdom and training from the great Japanese Ryu / Ken player Takeru. Even if you understand zero Japanese, this video is still very much worth the watch.
