Street Fighter 5 looks more like Dragon Ball FighterZ in this crazy clip between Rashid and Dhalsim

Street Fighter 5 really encourages offense and applying pressure to your opponent, and as a result, we've seen a lot of highlights over the years that showcase high-speed, in your face gameplay. Despite this, some characters can take it even further, with some fans saying these fighters belong in a Marvel vs. Capcom game instead. Apparently, they'd also fit well into Dragon Ball FighterZ.

A clip shared by Dhalsim player ITK_itsukick on Twitter features a wild interaction between their Sim and a Rashid player online that is so high-flying and fast, it looks more like a scene out of Bandai Namco's popular Dragon Ball franchise fighting game.

ITK_itsukick starts things off by poking at the Rashid and stopping their advances. An EX Eagle Spike gets stopped in its tracks by a well-timed standing medium punch, but it's not enough to deter Rashid from trying to get in.

The master of the turbulent wind pops a raw V-Trigger, then shoots in again with a regular Eagle Spike. The Dhalsim player reacts by teleporting to the other side of the screen, swiftly evading the foe.

These two combatants then go back and forth repeating their actions and avoiding each other as if they were exchanging Vanishes in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Rashid does Eagle Spike (or the EX version) and Dhalsim teleports each time, causing them to continue switching sides and making no contact.

This happens a whopping four times in a row before Rashid takes a quick breather, only to be hit by Dhalsim who teleported behind him and snuck in an attack. ITK_itsukick can't help but laugh after the wild interaction, and that definitely feels like the proper response considering how crazy this whole scene looks.
