This Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite combo loop deals zero physical damage, but the emotional damage is off the charts

In fighting games, and especially the Marvel vs. Capcom series, combo loops are plentiful and used to capture foes in typically inescapable situations that tack on massive amounts of damage. In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, however, apparently it's possible to ensnare a foe in a loop that deals absolutely no damage — yet the emotional damage is very real.

Though this isn't something like a Magneto staircase combo that results in a touch-of-death, it might actually be more impressive due to just how rare of a sight it is.

Oh how I wish Capcom would make a new All-Star Versus fighting game with the amount of love and charm found in Teppen's artwork

One of the main appeals of big crossovers (when done well) is seeing different characters and universes interact in charming in clever ways from a team who has a deep knowledge and respect for the source material, and that's something which has been sorely missing out of Capcom for more than a decade now.
