ICONIC Esports Moments: EVO Moment 37 - "The Daigo Parry" (Street Fighter)

7054 ratings | 273760 views
In the history of esports, certain highlights have managed to transcend games – plays so incredible that no fan, regardless of game loyalty, can deny their brilliance. Think of Dota 2’s “the Play”, coldzera’s Jumping AWP in CS:GO and League of Legends’ “the xPeke”. However, before any others is one that stands alone - a play which is arguably the original iconic esports moment and is quite possibly the most influential of them all: EVO Moment 37.

Hey everyone - thank you all so much for watching the video! This was our first foray outside of LoL/Dota 2/CS:GO for the Iconic series, and your response has been frankly overwhelming. It’s amazing to hear that so many non-fighting game fans can appreciate this classic esports moment and can understand its significance. We've got lots of amazing stuff planned for the future, so please keep the feedback coming - we aim to bring you great content each and every time! - Nic

Did Diago have enough super-meter for his super, before he started to parry, or did he need the parries to do his super? (I am not familiar with this game.)

I now understand die-hard sports fans a little more. Like Mr. Chen said it must be an extremely similar, if not identical, sensation.

One nitpick: you cut out the crowd cheering with music! When Daigo did that the crowd goes freaking wild. And here you just play loud music over it so you can hardly tell. But still interesting and cool.

craziest moment , thats crazy maaan
I'm ShaPowLow (4 months ago)
What's even crazier is that Justin did the safest and prolly best move to end the match. Daigo was one hit away, block or not so what's the best way to kill him safely? Unleash the super: a rapid 15 hit that even just one goes through would win him the game.. but who in the living hell would've thought Daigo would parry ALL of them??! That's the crazier part there, Daigo owned the game, he defeated common sense with his inhuman skills

Meanwhile in Japan that became a meme called "Let's go Justin!"
Nojin Myung (4 months ago)
What the video doesnt mention is..."On top of that", Diago neutral jumped, effectively putting himself at risk, to air parry the last hit so that he could maximize his combo damage with a jumping attack. He knew exactly what he had to do to finish the match right at that moment. Epic.

It's just a stupid video game. I don't understand the crazy hype.
arka das (2 months ago)
by ur logic, one can argue that any game or sport is stupid. coz there is no meaning to it. I agree its not beneficial for ur body, but same can be said for many popular sports & games. but all of them take skills, a lot of skill. and its all about winning the game & how u do it.
Chidori723 (6 months ago)
frozendilemma Yes it IS just a video game, but if you read the other comments, you gotta realize how hard it is to parry a move like that in 3rd Strike.Parry a 15 hit move like that takes insane mental concentration and sharp hand-eye coordination . One single mistake and Daigo would have lost.That is one of the things that made this moment so legendary. This moment also show how we human beings are blessed with the potential to do many great things. Whether it's real sports, or eSports, there will always be people who will shine, even at the brink of defeat. :)

Daigo must be nice and all, but it's a fucking video game; he's not Rafeal Nadal beating Federer in tennis.

What version of Third Strike did they play?
B CG (7 months ago)
I think the opening statement of this video is completely wrong. I'm a lifelong gamer who simply does not enjoy the MMO, those MMO esport moments DO NOT transcend genres, however I would assume that the great classic moments in fighting games and other record-breaking Eastport moments do transcend the genre.
Hatchumo (7 months ago)
What do you mean "before any others?" Where are some Broodwar moments? Boxer already established himself as the most dominant Kespa player like two years before this... Is the original god of gaming really going to just be forgotten. Damn shame for a channel like this...

What happened to Evo moments 1-36?
Viewtiful Z (6 months ago)
There are no moments 1-36. When the announcer was told to immediately put that on the internet so its glory can live forever, he slapped a "#37" on it to make people think this wasn't the first godlike play of the tournament's history, and there will probably be more, so they should go watch Evo 05 to see more godlike plays.
Felix Ortiz (6 months ago)
Christopher Pedroza it was a ploy to make outsiders think if this great moment was 37 than I have to check out this tournament cause easily this is number 1
There is no content on internet that generates more ASMR than that moment. Unbelievable.

Parrying like your life depends on it
Infidel (8 months ago)
Did Diago have enough super-meter for his super, before he started to parry, or did he need the parries to do his super? (I am not familiar with this game.)
Al Bundy (6 months ago)
It is always a plus to have meter cos meter is a resource you can use to enhance special attack and to perform SuperArt techniques in 3rd Strike
Viewtiful Z (6 months ago)
Yes. If Daigo's combo didn't kill, he had another super, and could do EX moves (powered up version of a special move that takes 1/3 of your super meter)
Infidel (6 months ago)
Is/Was there an advantage to have a second super meter?
Viewtiful Z (6 months ago)
To start off, he did have enough meter to do Ken's Super, but as he parried, he built another meter
Al Bundy (6 months ago)
Yes he had 1 Super ready and the parries + the combo fill a second

I wish more people/gamers can see the iconic plays from esports, so at least we can unite how good E-sports came to be, today many people fight over some stupid reasons because of game rivalries *cough* LoL vs Dota2 *cough*. dissing each other.. I wish more iconic plays like this can be made, so everyone will be reminded that we love playing games...
Sebastian Palominos (10 months ago)
I honestly believe that the fundamental reason that this specific moment holds such value, it is because the underlying premise that any good game should inspire: even tough the game is not perfect, perfection by itself rewards like nothing... And the most cool stuff about this premise , is followed by : I can always do this X specific thing and i can get what i want, if done perfect, if i could parry every single hit, i shall win...and that seek of perfections drives such amusement and awe, and only practice can, potentially, game as much games as possible; since no one wants to lose.

I love how the Daigo Parry is simply known as 'EVO Moment 37'.
Chidori723 (6 months ago)
moziet Yeah, it has a nice ring to it.
Momin Idrees (8 months ago)
moziet One of the tournament organizers and the primary ring announcer, Ben Cureton, was asked to create a highlight video of the "Daigo Parry" after the tournament was completed. Cureton uploaded the video under the title "Evo Moment #37", picking a random two-digit number to represent the highlight. In the book Evo Moment #37, Glenn Cravens wrote that "Obviously, it's the No. 1 highlight, but in picking a number like 37, it would signal to the viewer who wasn't there that there were many incredible moments like the 'Daigo parry.' He wanted to make sure people didn't miss out on Evolution 2005 coming next year
