Akuma vs. Dhalsim

Dhalsim: I teleport.  You slide on one foot.  My necklace is more thug than yours.  You ain't no monk.  I hope the Dalai Lama destroys you for your frontin'.  Poseur.
Akuma: Psshh whatever he doesn't even do that anymore.  Stop hatin'.
Akuma: At least I got a rope belt.
Dhalsim: Now you're a biter too.  Well done.
Akuma: Ngghh!

(continuing mini-series inspired by Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix)

... and Dhalsim was no more. At least he got some good disses in premortem. Our elastic Indian friend was definitely not one of my top contenders, with his look-at-me-I'm-on-the-moon jump speed and dearth of power counter combos. I probably tried once, and thereafter wiped the slaughter from my memory to reduce the resultant trauma.

I actually don't know if I ever fought the original crazy-strong version of Akuma before, since I never had a home version of Super Turbo, and definitely never played all the way to M. Bison on one quarter in an arcade. I sat down with HD Remix after a long break from fighting games. I hadn't been so frustrated and obsessed with any game in a LONG time. At first I just got destroyed. Then I was able to win an occasional round, and even came heartbreakingly close to victory a time or two. As I detected the rising of the sun I knew I had to give up some time. Success was not to be had. This time.
