EVO - the Mecca of the Fighting Game Community. A tournament series so legendary, just saying its name conjures up images of glorious victory, crushing defeat and, of course, the highest levels of hype. With EVO 2017 now behind us, we thought it was only fitting to look back at the tournament’s illustrious fifteen year history and relive some of its most unforgettable stories. These are the most iconic moments in EVO history.

I'm NOT crying with the HBox guy story.
dog de la frog (17 hours ago)
As an HBOX fan, seeing him win evo was the best run EVER. Go ahead and hit me with those mindhive hbox hating downvotes, but one of the best moments in FGC history.

But its not really about fighting skills of strategy if its all about landing comboes.. one combo deplets your entire health bar?? Stupid, and boring to watch cause they always do the same shit

Sonicfox? is that REALLY how you want to be known?
Lorienzo De Garcia (3 days ago)
I was hoping in Justin Wong's Evo comeback on UMvC3 you mention how ChrisG had his bullet hell team comp and FChamp's Pheonix X-factor spam that was hard to get through. And another is just Kusoru's fucking use of his characters during I think Evo 2012 on UMvC3? His freaking Frank West X-factor dunk on FChamp's Phoenix was so hype and unprecedented the mic cut off. And Rocket Raccoon trap on Phoenix ended that tournament in the highest note ever, like FChamp couldn't even get mad. But overall, damn good documentary.

Gracias por publicar este vídeo, no se mucho sobre EVO pero por lo que eh visto son momentos únicos, el único momento que conocía es 34:55, es mucha dedicación el sacar adelante una partida y poder ganar, pero sobre todo ganarle al campeón Todos los momentos que has pasado por aquí se vive una experiencia inolvidable para ambos competidores y el público.

Hungry Box deserved that win. Years of coming up just short and wouldn't give up. Worked hard and he finally pulled it off.

I blow at fighting games, but the passion and the hype at these competitive events bring tears my eyes. These players give it their all.
Kitten Mittens (7 days ago)
And one year later, another incredible, iconic moment to add to EVO history: Two kids ride a shamelessly broken character to grand finals and proceed to disrespect the tournament, their community, and themselves as they giggle like schoolgirls and purposefully stall for half the match. Good riddance, Smash For Wii U.

one more thing about evo moment #37, chun li super is the fastest in the game, you can't parry it on visual reaction, you must react to the sound or predict it.

Hans Schneider (9 days ago)
that last moment is similar to league's faker vs ryu zeds duel. I think every really big game has some epic moments like those
ThePeaceful K (9 days ago)
These are awesome moments for sure, but it's a shame that "Garireo" from Blazblue was not in the Iconic moments. That comeback was something else
