The Story of Daigo Umehara: The Beast (FGC)

6852 ratings | 289752 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.

Moment 37 is an undying legend.
Hello Friend (10 days ago)
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.

Could he beat tomo when he was at his best
Best Bout Gaming (11 days 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.

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.

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.

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 (3 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.

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.

With the new Streetfighter everyone can Play as digo did. Cause to play those games today need no skill and experience anymore. It has become just as smash brothers. Anyone can win or lose. Turn back to sf3 and there is no room for inexperienced players
