Dan Hibiki is the latest character to join Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's roster. Though the character is meant to be a bit of a joke in Street Fighter lore, he actually has some impressive combo potential.

Desk has recently uploaded a video that showcases some combos that utilize Dan's V-Trigger 1, the Haoh Gadoken. What's interesting about this video is that it not only showcases combos for Dan using the Haoh Gadoken, but it also demonstrates a few combos for other characters that use Dan's Haoh Gadoken against him.

If fully charged, the Haoh Gadoken's final hit will cause the opponent to suffer a wall bounce. If reflected, this wall bounce property can be used against Dan instead.

The characters that are capable of doing this are Urien, Abigail and Falke. These scenarios also require their V-Triggers to be active to reflect a projectile like Dan's multi-hitting V-Trigger 1.

At one point, Desk showcases a combo that has Haoh Gadoken activated twice. This is possible thanks to the unique property of the Haoh Gadoken being the only V-Trigger in the game that maxes out its V-Gauge at one bar.
