So, it's finally here, performing for yoโ€”I mean, Street Fighter 6 is finally here! Players the whole world over are diving head first into Capcom's latest entry in the beloved Street Fighter franchise to learn anything and everything they can about it.

Among the sea of excellent combos, tech, and clips of match footage we've been seeing are some of the great little details that were slipped into the game for fans to find. One such great added touch comes in the form of Marisa's taunt, which sees her hilariously encourage the opponent to hit her. Just like many of her other moves, her taunt also has armor on it and can absorb attacks.

In Street Fighter 6, each character has several taunts that they can perform by holding a direction and pressing all three punches and all three kicks together. For Marisa, this "go ahead and hit me" taunt is mapped to forward.

Lastrewards on Twitter shared a clip of this taunt on Twitter, bringing it to our attention. When she activates it, she'll lean forward and point to her jaw egging the opponent on.

"Come on, the first hit's free" she says while, well... taunting her foe. While that's already funny enough due to the sheer confidence this towering fighter has in battle, the added element to it makes it amazing.

If you actually oblige Marisa and hit her with an attack, she'll armor through and absorb it. Several of Marisa's moves in Street Fighter 6 have similar armor, allowing her to bully the opposition and plow right through if they make a poor choice.

We have already seen other interesting interactions and effects stemming from taunts in Street Fighter 6 previously. In Lily's initial gameplay trailer, Capcom showed that when she pulls out her camera and snaps a photo, the flash can actually strike the opponent.

Street Fighter 6 is out now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
