Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo is perhaps one of the most important fighting games ever to release in the genre aside from the likes of the original SF2, and it continues to have a dedicated playerbase that is still finding new, cool stuff to do in the Capcom fighter.

The genius fighting game system abuser and combo creator Bob Sagat recently released a compilation of the crazy and new tech that's possible in Turbo including what he describes as the "ultimate glitch" for Ken.

This ultimate glitch in question doesn't appear until over two minutes into the video which has Ken morphing into the ground caused by bugging his Super into an air Tatsu that at the same time is hit by the opponent.

It was technically discovered a few years ago, but now the glitch has been taken many times further now by the discovering a way to keep Ken stuck in the floor and allows him to pull of some crazy / silly stuff like the Shoto punching Zangief's feet or performing an air throw on a grounded opponent.

More visually flashy than the buried Ken comes slightly before that with M. Bison who can apparently combo into and out of his head stomp as "old" M. Bison though this can only be done against Old Fei Long for some reason.

A collection like this is a great way to show off what's possible in games like these that were never part of the developer's intent where they would most likely be patched out today once discovered.

We highly recommend checking out this fun and cool video below. Bob Sagat himself has even put together a super handy transcript that explains how each of the glitched combos used in his video works which you can find here.
