This Abigail mirror match is like a kaiju battle mixed with the dumbest game of chicken... and it's great

The behemoth Abigail is one of the most stress-inducing characters to go up against in all of Street Fighter 5 with his power to armor through all attacks and melt lifebars out of nowhere, but there's just something about this mirror match in particular that tickles the brain nicely.

During the most recent Korean Online Warrior SF5 tournament, Hulkmania and R_Joint666 squared off that can only be described as Godzilla vs. Mecha Godzilla if they were both big bozos, and it's just fantastic.

All tied on rounds in the first game, the human Abigail comes out swinging (or in this case sprinting) with his armored EX run plus some tire fun although that's not where things get the most interesting.

After being down most of the round up to that point, Hulkmania hits a clutch parry into V-Trigger 2 activation into charge, which ends up giving R_Joint666 enough meter for his as well.

What insues is basically one of the dumbest games of chicken in the realm of Street Fighter for a moment to see who would start up the next charge first, and it would be Mecha Abigail to lead the way.

That of course led to R_Joint666 popping his own trigger to try and get the punish, but it was all one big bait by Hulkmania because he was still sitting on Critical Art.

You can check out the action here thanks to HiFight though we won't spoil the rest of the set, so check out the full archive on Spirit Zero's Twitch channel to see how the epic battle of Abigail vs. Mecha Abigail concludes.
