Bayonetta Player Humiliates Opponent In Japanese Smash Bros. Tournament

Hiro didn't win the Shulla-bra VIII Smash 4 tournament in Japan earlier this morning. That honour went to Shuton who, playing as Olimar, was able to come back from an initial loss to convincingly triumph in the grand finals. Hiro did, however, get the consolation prize of completely disrespecting the tournament's third-place finisher, Chanshu.

There are a million easier ways he could have tried to stop his opponent from grabbing back onto the stage, but none of them would have looked this this good.

    Umm... I don't get it. How is this supposed to be "humiliating"?

    Jumping off the ledge to knock an opponent down or stop them from getting back to the ledge and making it back up has been done a few times of a few top tier smash players for a while now....

      I think it was more because he already had used his Shoryuken (Up-B recovery move) and wasn't going to make it back. He was already dead.

      Instead, he lept out, pulled off a slow-mo counter, juggled him around, then spiked him down.

    Reading the article might help. "There are a million easier ways he could have tried to stop his opponent from grabbing back onto the stage, but none of them would have looked this this good". So he could've achieved his goals easily and efficiently, but he chose to do something flashy to rub the salt in the wound.

      Would have been nice if they elaborated instead of saying "go watch this nearly 2-and-a-half-hour video to try to work out what Im talking about".

      *cough*
      As I said... the whole jump out from ledge + combo to guarantee a KO is actually something pro SMASH players tend to do a fair bit hence I didn't get the "humiliation" part at the time =P
