Old school games like Marvel vs. Capcom 2 are often praised for a variety of reasons. There's still an appreciation of the execution that's required to pull off flashy combos.

Recently, Justin Wong posted a clip that came about after two hours of practice. Needless to say, this is something that needs a lot of practice in order to get down consistently.

Throughout the lifespan of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Street Fighter's Ken has generally been viewed as a low tier combatant. Despite this, he actually does have access to an infinite touch of death combo.

Upon getting the opponent into the corner, Ken is capable of looping aerial light, medium, and heavies into his air Hurricane Kick. The main thing that's required here is a method to launch the opposing character.

While this seems fairly simple on paper, you can tell that this requires a lot of practice based on the number of button presses that can be heard in the clip. Very fast inputs are necessary.

For this purpose, Justin Wong has Ruby Heart assisting Ken. She launches the enemy for Ken, then finishes the combo at the very end.
