One of the best gamer plays ever, which was eventually duplicated in Street Fighter III

Justin Wong has been given a "Daigo parry," evoking one of the most legendary events in competitive video game history, a perfect parry from Chun-Li that resulted in the most cheered "comeback" in Street Fighter III.

Justin Wong is a professional fighting game player who took part (and lost) in one of the most iconic events in video game history: the " Evo Moment 37." This achievement occurred during EVO 2004 (Evolution Championship Series), during a Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike bout.

Wong was comfortably ahead with Ken, and he could have won by letting the clock tick for another 26 seconds. However, he chose to finish off his opponent, Daigo Umehara's Chun-Li... and this proved to be a costly error (although a gift for all those present).

Wong (Chun-Li) targeted Daigo with a special assault (Ken). Daigo would have lost even if he had blocked them, because preventing them still causes damage, and Daigo only had one pixel of life left. He, on the other hand, perfectly parried Chun-repeated Li's blows, counterattacking and winning the game.

The people in California went berserk with enthusiasm, and it has since become one of the most famous events in video game history, with its own Wikipedia section.

Justin Wong was granted another "Daigo" 18 years later. The identical scene was replayed in a live webcast of Street Fighter III. "Do you believe you're Daigo? You're not Daigo, are you? "He sneered at first, but Ken parried all of his kicks and won the fight by counterattacking. " Nooo, it's Daigo!"

Other players have attempted the "Daigo parry" technique since then, but only a handful have succeeded. The reason for this is that to parry, you must move towards your opponent precisely at the instant he makes his attack, with only six or seven frames to spare (one tenth of a second).

When Daigo Umehara debuted this technique at EVO 2004, it was a highly tough move that required correctly hitting the moment to parry Chun-15 Li's strikes, predicting even the moment when the opponent started the attack.
