We have seen some extremely close calls in fighting games before, and these types of plays often come down to a single second making all of the difference. A Street Fighter 5 clip we spotted on Twitter this morning perfectly encapsulates that, and this one is about as close as it gets.






Nash player KAMAKAZE_ZC shared a moment from one of their recent online Street Fighter 5 matches that showcases an incredible play that literally won the round for them. Thanks to Nash’s ability to steal health with his EX Tragedy Assault special move, KAMAKAZE_ZC was able to squeak by with a time over victory at literally the last second.









Facing an E. Honda player, KAMAKAZE_ZC sat at a significant life deficit with the clock quickly winding down. At just 15 seconds left, things were looking grim for the Nash player, but a Sonic Boom from full screen away would be the first step to victory here.


Faking the advance with a dash forward, the Nash player convinced Honda to V-Shift Break the projectile. Still being on the other side of the screen, though, left Honda open to a full combo punish.


Using a quick V-Trigger 2 activation combo, Nash fired into his first EX Tragedy Assault which allows him to absorb a small chunk of health from his opponent and toss them up into the air for a juggle. From there, a rinse and repeat of Nash’s VT2 up kick and EX Tragedy Assault keep Honda airborne all while having health syphoned and added to Nash’s health bar.


Landing the third and final EX Tragedy Assault at two seconds left on the clock saw Nash literally take that final bit of health he needed to be at the life lead. As the move’s animation ends and Nash tosses the opponent back into the air, the timer runs out and Nash wins the round by an incredibly close time over.
