** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS7hkwbKmBM Evo Moment #37]] - From Evo 2004, the [[Awesome/ProGaming now infamous comeback]] from Daigo Umehara's Ken against Justin Wong's Chun-Li in the final round of match one in the loser's bracket finals. With Ken down to just a pixel of health, even chip damage would knock him out. By keeping his distance from Chun-Li, Daigo successfully baited Justin Wong into attempting to decisively end the match with Chun-Li's Houyokusen super move, a lightning fast 15-hit combo. Daigo proceeded to parry every single hit of the combo -- a daring tactic which would allow him to weather the assault unscathed, but where a single mistake would cost him the match -- and position himself to deliver a super of his own, turning what would've been an easy win for Wong into the most infamous comeback in fighting game history. This moment has been [[AscendedMeme recreated in official material]], appearing as one of the trials in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 3rd Strike Online Edition'' and at the end of the trailer for ''Ultimate VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''[='s=] Heroes and Heralds mode (with Ryu standing in for Ken).

By keeping his distance from Chun-Li, Daigo successfully baited Justin Wong into attempting to decisively end the match with Chun-Li's Houyokusen super move, a lightning fast 15-hit combo. combo, thinking that Daigo'd be forced to block it and allow Wong to win via chip damage. Instead, Daigo proceeded to not only parry every single hit of the combo -- a daring tactic which would allow him to weather the assault unscathed, but where a single mistake would cost him the match -- and he also parried the last hit in mid-air by jumping in the air in the middle of Wong's super, allowing him to position himself to deliver land a jump-in combo ending in a super of his own, turning what would've been an easy win for Wong into the most infamous comeback in fighting game history.

* Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez: An up-and-coming player who is infamous for being quite polarizing within the community. While his skill is commendable, his attitude is sometimes viewed as uncouth, to put it lightly. In addition, his character choices have also come under criticism, as he is also infamous for playing Dhalsim and Phoenix, who are already well-established as being extremely annoying and difficult to deal with. Ironically, he is also given flak for sticking with characters that do poorly in certain match-ups, most notably against [=ChrisG=]. Sponsored by Panda Global, and the head of the FGTV crew.
