Double bomb combos and nasty setups from Ibuki will melt your eyes after destroying your guard

Ibuki's V-Trigger bombs were one of the most potent mixup options in Street Fighter 5's first two seasons, and we might be seeing more of it here in 2021 if these setups are anything to go by.

Longtime competitive player Pochoclo23 recently released a new V-Trigger 1 showcase for Street Fighters female ninja which includes some reportedly new tech plus some ridiculous double explosion combos that'll drain your life bar just by looking at them.

The short compilations starts out with a big bang, as Pochoclo's exhibit A is a juggle reset situation into meaty low forward for the activation. This allows him to use the full upward kunai release and toss out the second bomb with enough time for an EX Raida, explosion and another Raida for over 400 damage.

Number two is the same setup as the first but he instead goes for a cross under out of the corner before putting Ryu back against the wall for almost the same damage as the initial clip.

Most of the others follow a similar start with landing just about any possible option out of that reset, like throw, overhead, instant overhead, into full conversions that look quite scary for the receiving end.

Ibuki's bombs fell out of favor after Arcade Edition added her Fuma Shuriken V-Trigger, which was one of the best in the game for a good while.

Now that her VT2 has been nerfed multiple times, however, players began trying out Ibuki's bomb game again, and tech like this is probably going to cause more to jump ship back to the original dirty mixups.

Comment below how scared you'd be to see Ibuki's V-Trigger 1 make a big comeback in Street Fighter 5 on a scale of 1โ€“10.
