The Capcom Pro Tour 2021 Middle East ended up being a fun event to spectate for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition fans. In the grand finals, NASR|AngryBird's Seth ended up facing off against NASR|BigBird's Ken.

HiFight has released another video of his Just Frame Breakdown that has him highlighting intricate details of the match. This time, HiFight's focus is on the 3rd round of the first match (after the reset) that occurred between AngryBird and BigBird.

One of Seth's most defining traits is his ability to copy the special moves of other fighters. By using Seth's V-Skill 1, he can temporarily install a preset special from the opponent's character.

Uniquely, Seth is able to cancel into his stolen special from normal moves that typically aren't special cancelable. A shift in AngryBird's playstyle with Seth can be noted after he installs Ken's Shoryuken. If Seth can land a crouching heavy kick, he can cancel into Ken's Dragon Punch for big damage.

However, BigBird is able to take advantage of this in quite a few interactions as he's often seen whiff punishing Seth's crouching heavy kick. At one point, BigBird is able to pull off a combo that was only made possible thanks to the most recent Street Fighter 5 patch that provided buffs to Ken's kit.

Check out HiFight's detailed analysis that happens in slow motion in the video below:
