Blink and you'll miss how fast Broski's Dhalsim melts this Birdie's life bar

Street Fighter 5 is an offensive, rush down heavy game; Street Fighter 5 Dhalsim is an offensive, rush down heavy character... especially in the hands of Broski.

While facing off against a Birdie player online, the UK Sim player pulled off yet another one of his more and more frequent jaw-dropping beat downs. While all the fire, teleports, and slick links are great, we were impressed simply by how insanely fast Birdie's life bar goes from two thirds full to totally empty.

Things start with a routine Dhalsim heavy punch from nearly full screen away. This pesky hit gets the Birdie to rush in with an EX Bull Head, likely in hopes of catching another normal with its armor.

This merely opens him up for a gnarly crouching fierce that leads into a V-Trigger 1 activation. With the flame carpet now out on the battle field, the Birdie has just one chance to get out of this offensive sequence.

Using a well-timed set up, Broski opens his foe up with a meaty slide that leads into an extra spiffy combo, the majority of it hitting while the flames below simultaneously sap his victim's health.
