During the Street Fighter 6 closed beta test, some players took the time to experiment with the game’s parry system and see if they could pull off the classic Evo Moment #37. They succeeded, and because you have to perfect parry each hit, performing it is actually quite difficult.






An artist by the name of TinaFate1 created a couple of illustrations of this moment being done in SF6 that not only looks great, but plays on the fact that Chun-Li has time to realize how big of a mistake she made during the screen freeze that comes with perfect parry. Her reaction to getting caught in this moment AGAIN is priceless.








Evo Moment 37 refers to an incredible Street Fighter 3: Third Strike play that took place at Evo 2004 and featured Justin Wong and BST|Daigo going up against each other. Justin’s Chun-Li went for a raw super attack to try and chip out the last sliver of health Daigo’s Ken had left, but Daigo parried every hit of the maneuver and answered back with a hard-hitting round-winning combo.


The moment is iconic in the fighting game community, and this play has been recreated in nearly every fighting game that has some kind of parry mechanic in it. Now we have an Evo Moment 37 done in Street Fighter 6, and the fact that this already came to pass with just the beta and not after launch shows just how meaningful the moment is for fighting game fans.


TinaFate1 shared two pieces of artwork on Twitter. The first shows the initial hit of the super being parried by Ken and the fiery Shoto hurling a smug “Deja vu, huh?” her way.


In the second illustration, Chun-Li’s face of determination switches to one of horror as she has flashbacks to that fateful day in 2004. With sweat rolling down her face and tears in her eyes, Chun knows exactly what comes next in this situation, and it isn’t good.


The artist’s style for these pieces is great and almost looks like a modern day cartoon. It would be really cool to see an animated version of TinaFate1’s work at some point.
