* While they may not have gone far into the bracket, team 9road at the 2018 Cooperation Cup was a sight to behold. An [[AllStarCast all-star team]] of some of the most famous Street Fighter players in fighting game history, containing Daigo Umehara as Ken, Vanao as Ryu, MOV as Chun-Li, Haitani as Makoto, and Kuroda as ''Q''. A compilation of some of their efforts can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufmW8nMeRCg here]].

* There were a few great moments at EVO Japan 2018.
** MenaRD, the 2017 Capcom Cup champ, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rm5Psn8NJ2Q&t=226s was denied entry to Top 8 by stormKUBO]]. Mena was a favorite to win the entire tournament, and to see him be thrashed by stormKUBOs Abigail shocked a lot of people.
** Daigo's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xVOm74y91c return to form with Guile]]. Daigo upset a lot of fans when he dropped Ryu as his character of choice in favor of Guile, despite his experience with the character in the past. at EVO Japan he managed to silence the naysayers, delivering a beatdown to almost everyone he encountered, including at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUkh8Vk2lOc&t=122s 3-0 against the 2017 EVO champ, Tokido.]] While he ultimately fell short of winning in Loser's Finals to Infiltration's Menat, Daigo showed he can never be counted out, ''and'' broke his dry streak by making it to Top 8 at EVO for the first time in '''5 years'''.

* After years of falling short, Nage finally took home an EVO title at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azTRIzX63g0 EVO Japan 2018 for Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator 2]]. Despite a bracket reset by the 2017 champion, Omito, in Grand Finals, Nage managed to hold his own to a final game. In a set that was down to the wire, he pushed Omito's Johnny into the corner and kept up relentless pressure before finally cracking through his defenses and taking the tournament.

In the now-infamous match between Justin Wong and Daigo Umehara[[note]]considered one of the best ''Street Fighter'' players ever, if not the best ever[[/note]], Daigo (Ken) is down to a bare sliver of health against Justin (Chun-Li). Justin goes for Chun-Li's Super Combo; all looks lost. Then Daigo proves why he's nicknamed "The Beast": knowing that blocking even one blow would cost him the game (due to chip damage, though not the match, Daigo was up 1-0), Daigo goes UpToEleven for even expert players and ''parries every possible hit of the Super Combo'', including one while airborne, then counters with a Super Combo of his own to win the match. This moment is still considered one of the most impressive feats in all of competitive gaming. \\

* During EVO 2017 Reddit's /r/kappa had crowdfunded to send a player by the name of Tomo to EVO with mindblowing results throughout but special mentions go to Ogawa (Zato) vs Tomo (Leo) during pools. With the pressure on, Ogawa being the EVO 2015 champion and the match going back and forth the entire time, it came down to the last set. The result? [[spoiler: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di7WWya3s9Y Tomo played like a god and double perfect'd Ogawa, sending him to loser's.]]]] The announcers, the crowd, and twitch chat all ''lost their minds.''

* After years of failing to win the title, Tokido '''finally''' wins EVO 2017 with his iconic Akuma fighting through the Losers' Bracket to Grand Finals, getting a reset and delivering a 3-0 CurbStompBattle in the second set to Punk. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugbOFY_fmYU Grand Final]] is something of legends to be told, including finishing game one of the first set with a taunt combo (the commentators even said it ''never'' happened in EVO Grand Finals), ''a Perfect round after resetting'' and in the following game, '''lands a Raging Demon on Karin for the kill, further demoralizing Punk'''; the crowd obviously went nuts. To Punk's credit, he (who played in EVO for the first time) fought his way to the Grand Final ''without losing a single game'', and came very close to winning America's first EVO SF Championship.
