The Star Wars Anakin Skywalker and Padmé meme is too damn perfect when paired with Street Fighter

That Star Wars meme that's going around the internet as of late is real damn good. While I can't tell you why it sprung up all of a sudden when the movie was from clear back in 2002, Padmé being unsure of Anakin Skywalker's intentions makes for internet comedy gold.

Of course, the fighting game community has gotten hold of this meme and put together some truly excellent creations that every Street Fighter 5 player knows. Come with us now on a journey through time and space... and memes.

We start off with what might be my favorite of the entire bunch. Vega throwing raw slide is inevitable, and while you'd think Vega players would only do so when they can make it safe with a V-Trigger activation, that certainly isn't always the case...

One of the most infamous situations you can find yourself in in Street Fighter 5 is blocking an opponent's attack that's -2 and thinking it's your turn to press a button. For characters like Urien and Ken, though, that -2 is purely a false sense of security.

Akuma is Street Fighter's original secret boss and brought with him an unblockable super attack that dealt tremendous damage. Poor Chun-Li must have thought at one point it could be blocked, but found out the hard way — much like many of us did.

And of course, Alex players in Street Fighter 5 are most well known for their incredible comebacks being shared on Twitter. Sometimes, though, those amazing highlights don't always mean they won the set.
