* EVO 2016 Melee: Having to fight through the Losers Bracket and surviving a close call by Pulp, Hungrybox nearly finds himself eliminated in the first Grand Final set by last year's champion Armada when he pulls off a comeback with only one stock and a high meter to reset the bracket. After Armada takes it to 2-1 in the second set, Hungrybox again survives elimination and forces one last match. Despite an attempted comeback by Armada with only one stock, Hungrybox gets the last laugh and after coming so close so many times, ''finally'' wins at EVO.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFsXW4slTfo Daigo vs Momochi at Stunfest 2015 Grand Final]]. From 10:46 onwards, witness The Beast Unleashed: '''25 hits combo''' with ''only normal moves''.

** In fact, during said victory against Evil Geniuses, OG lost the first game of the Best of 3 with just 2 kills all game to EG's 29. The second game started out seeming like a similar stomp, with EG securing First Blood. For a moment, it looked like OG would be eliminated 2-0 and the finals would be between EG and Secret. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKWdo473nBo And then this happened]]. MoonMeander, a player previously dismissed as cocky and arrogant with nothing to show for it, considered a weak link in OG, who had never really experienced much success in Dota 2, showed up to fight, and put OG on his back.

** As of CEO 2016, Tokido ''finally'' breaks the streak and defeats Infiltration in [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TRBEWQsd4LI Grand Finals]]. This set shows full potential of Ryu's V-Skill Parry, with Tokido using it to stop Infiltration's tactics and countering beautifully, going from parrying Nash's Forward.HK on wakeup after being grabbed, EX Moonsault[[note]] after the first two hits are parried, Tokido then does a crouching jab ''right in the middle of the animation'' just to time the third parry[[/note]], and ''Critical Art''. Tokido then ends the 6-1 set ends with a ''perfect'', earning a spot at Capcom Cup, to the cheers of the hyped-up crowd.

* ESEA LAN 13. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QzM_2pdH1Y Dynamic Swag VS [=VeryGames=]]]. Things are getting desperate when Braxton "Swag" Pierce had to defend the planted bomb against [=KennyS=] of [=VeryGames=] alone. What does he do when he heard footsteps getting close? [[spoiler: He throws his pistol away as a fake grenade.]]

** Also noteworthy: the performance of French player Luffy (Rose), who had to fight through an absolutely loaded bracket. After being sent to losers' bracket by Xian, he fought -- and eliminated -- Tokido, Mago, Eita, Momochi, Gackt, Snake Eyez, and 2011 champion Fuudo. He then defeated Bonchan to become the first non-Asian and first European champion for ''Street Fighter IV'' at EVO. The real kicker? ''He used a vanilla PS1 controller.''

* Before the game's release, consensus from the betas pointed many signs to Ken being a poorly designed character, with stubby-ranged normals, and long recovery frames in his moveset. Then at Winter Brawl X, newcomer Julio shows the community why Ken was to be feared, with his extremely risky, but rewarding gameplay. Masterfully capitalizing Ken's speed and damage from long strings, Julio went on to take second place and is still performing strongly as of this writing.
