Street Fighter 5's newest fighter might be able to one-hit KO you

Pro wrestler Rainbow Mika may very well be the deadliest combatant in Street Fighter 5's roster, thanks to her ability to deliver a nearly one-hit knockout in Capcom's upcoming fighting game. That may sound incredibly imbalanced, but actually pulling off that move will be nigh-impossible in a real-world scenario.

When Capcom announced last week that R. Mika was coming back for Street Fighter 5, the company noted that her V-Skill lets her boost her attack power by delivering a pumped-up monologue. The longer she speaks, the more she charges up. Thanks to a new video from Khaos Gaming, we now know that if Mika manages to finish her full speech, she'll be a force to be reckoned with.

Watch the video above to see Mika give her full, 16-second monologue — apparently her workout regimen — then catch Ryu in a command throw that takes off roughly 90 percent of his health. Again, it's extremely unlikely that any player will stand idly by long enough for R. Mika to ever get to that point, but if someone does manage to pull it off in a tournament setting, it'll be unforgettable.

Street Fighter 5 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Windows PC in 2016.
