The Story of Daigo Umehara: The Beast (FGC)

7522 ratings | 327911 views
The passion to learn, the will to endure and a willingness to adapt are traits common to some of the greatest heroes in fighting game history — but for Daigo Umehara, they are commandments that have led to an indelible competitive legacy. The man now known as The Beast was not born that way. This is his story.

Can we all just agree that SF-V is the worst iteration of the game they have ever made?
MinniMaster (22 days ago)
This guy is basically an old retired master. Not as capable as he was in his prime, but he can still hold his own and mainly passes his wisdom to others.

This mans been my idol ever since I found out about moment 37. He's not only a legend to me but also my motivation to not quit fighting games. He's touched my heart and honestly I almost got teary eyed watching this. Daigo I hope you realize everything you've done for our beloved fgc. You will live on forever in our hearts.

I wish I can get 50% of his patience and passion on doing this, no matter in the tournament or his daily routine that made up what he is now. Seriously, how many can stay as calm as he is during the tournament. The mental strength will lead any profession to the next level!

Daigo should move to kof. It's the only fighter that didnt whore out to make more money
Egok (1 month ago)
Even after "whoring out" street fighter and tekken are still so much better than kof. And what's wrong with making more money? I can tell you what's wrong with NOT making more money - you're forced to make a game like kof14 that looks like something that was made 10 years back. But forget graphics, kof can't stand up to sf or tekken on gameplay either.

I meet Daigo at CEO Daytona 2018 and he's an awesome guy! I walked up to him with my phone out and he immediately took a pic with me even though i didn't ask him yet. I root for him every time he's on stage.
metairie33 (2 months ago)
Could he beat tomo when he was at his best
Best Bout Gaming (2 months ago)
I've seen that look Daigo has in champions from other sports. It's the dead eyes, they're not phased by anything. Where others are psyching themselves up or out, it's just Tuesday for the Beast. The mark of a champion; they see the competition and yawn.
CARL WongTW (2 months ago)
Living legend, I love to watch him play, still remember the perfect Ken parry in SFIII EVO 37. . . . . He was using Ryu in SFIV but now in SFV he changed to Guile hmmm

Damn, he's not just a beast but also a very good guy!!! Come on! Give this guy a statue and he should be the first HOF once he retires.
Talitor (3 months ago)
There was huge story missed in what made Daigo play the way he does. When he started winning his first tournaments in Japan, he was confronted by the Japanese players about his playstyle. They commended him for the victories, but noted he should start playing the game in more entertaining way (Daigo noted himself he felt fighting games were "easy" when he started out, because he was always playing very safe). Japanese FGC players used to play the game for the entertainment value, not so much for the actual victory.
Penguinator (2 months ago)
To be more exact, he used to play Boxer (Balrog in west, Bison in Japan) in SF2 because he was a ridiculously strong character. He did it in order to keep winning because in the arcade days every defeat meant lining up to the machine and inserting another coin (and since Daigo was a kid at that time, he didn't have tons of money to spend). He was so good with the character that people in the arcade eventually refused to play him; only the hardcore SF2 players who used equally dirty characters and tactics remained. Then one day an older player recommended Daigo to pick up Ryu because "he was an interesting character" (though afterwards Daigo thought the guy was getting sick of his boxer too). He realized that he wasn't playing games to simply waste time and using Boxer to win more wasn't anything more than that, so he ended up switching Ryu to have more meaningful and interesting matches.

I find it interesting that this life was so influential apon him that even when he stopped playing for good, he still went to america to kick ass

That Evo Moment is so iconic that Capcom re-released Street fighter 3rd strike in HD for PS3 and added a final parry challenge in the game called Evo Moment 37.

nawab256 (6 months ago)
daigo is to serious, he mentally blocks his own growth, but damn is he good at fighting games. I wonder what he does now. his sf3s parry has made him a legend for life. he single handily brought life to the fighting game genre that moment.

Even if he doesn't win as many tournaments as he used to, his recent set with Tokido shows he really does still have it.

AngryTechGuy (7 months ago)
I think the lesson here is, you are not special. No one's ones born with. But the few willing to educate themselves, practice and commit to a craft, will put themselves in a stratosphere only an elite few will reach. Now THAT goes for video games AND life!! 'Moment 37' may look like God given talent, but few stop to consider the countless hours dude must have spent in practice mode preparing, just incase this scenario ever came up.

Daigo is always scariest when he is low health. That guy is magic. A lot of people like to shit on that with negative comments but he is a pure role model for not giving up when you want to quit. I love him for that. Fan for life.
