Can you count how many fireballs, teleports, and Demons are used in this insane Street Fighter Alpha 2 match?

You'll probably need to watch more than once

A whole slew of good, clean, family fun is coming your way as we turn to the highly interesting content of M. Bizarro for an absolutely bonkers Street Fighter Alpha 2 match that's filled to the brim with controlled chaos.

Having used an emulator to create a tool-assisted superplay (TAS), Bizarro pits Evil Ryu and Akuma against each other and has them dish out perfectly spaced and timed special attacks so as to form an enticing dance of near misses and crazy interactions on screen.

Round one is themed with fireballs as the two characters shoot nearly 30 projectiles at one another. Almost all of these are nullified by fireballs from the opposing figure, but keep butts on the edges of seats as the characters exchange frame-perfect counters and evasions.

Round two goes to Evil Ryu as he absolutely destroys Akuma in no more than nine seconds flat, and Akuma then repays the favor in round three by performing the exact same feat on Evil Ryu.

These rapid beat downs are very much impressive despite the fact that both fighters have access to infinite meter as they still include some sequences that are so awe-inspiring they require a double or triple take.

There's actually a fourth and final round, but we won't spoil what happens in the epic conclusion. Check out the TAS Alpha 2 video below and please share your reactions in the comments once you're done.
