Watch this nearly four-and-a-half minute compilation of Ryu laying out every character in Super Smash Bros. in this surprisingly violent and humorous video.
Bad animation sorta as most characters fall forward like they got hit in the back. 17% damage nice. Finally someone wipes that smile off of Marios face.
"KIDNEY PUNCH! Kidney punch, Kidney punch, Kidney punch and paaaaause... Kidney punch!" You get a cookie if you know the reference.^_- Anyways, I like Focus Punch, but it's got a few big weaknesses compared to other counters. #1 The release of the punch, is a manual release, meaning it's possible to miss the timing even if you manage to use it to guard a strike. #2 You still take the damage of the attack that hits you. #3 Attacks that hit multiple times have a pretty good chance of breaking through and cancelling the punch, unlike other counters that automatically guarantee an interrupt-free return strike in 99% of successful uses, even on multi-hit moves. That said, it's also the only counter in the game that you can double-tap a direction to cancel out of, making it a nice tool for mind games if you're clever.
