    Greetings! I've been a TYM lurker for about 4 years now and finally decided to make a thread (not even sure if I'm posting this in the right place (apologies if not) ). But, as the title says, what is your favorite move from any fighting game? Favorite special? Normal? String? It would be interesting to see what you all think. My personal favorites are:
    • Kabal's nomad dash and its cancel from MK9... (I can feel the hatred through my monitor as I'm typing this)
    • Kung Lao's back 321 from MKX
    • Green Lantern's back 1 from Injustice 1 and 2
    I feel that all 3 are very versatile moves and when I think of the character, these moves instantly pop into my mind. I believe that without them these characters would all suffer greatly. As for my least favorites, they are:
    • Reptile's dash from MK9 - I'm a scrub and could never punish that bamboozle fest (don't even get me started with online)
    • Quan Chi's low bat from MKX - do i even need to explain why?
    • Joker's teeth from Injustice 1 and 2 - I can attribute this to the fact that the only joker I played was online with horrendous connection, but I still have immeasurable levels of salt for that move and it's hard-to-blockable potential... maybe if i played a joker offline i would have a different opinion.
    I would like to hear your thoughts on this as well so please feel free to share:)

    Best if you're the one vortexing, worst if you're being vortex'd;)

    I wonder how many millennia of blockstun that move has caused in its entirety...

    HeavyNorse This will be easy

    I've always loved acrobatic kicks, like Guile's Flashkick and Nash's Moonsault Slash, Chun Li's Spinning Bird Kick, Orchid's Flick Flack, stuff like that. But I think my favourite move of all time is the Cannon Drill/Spiral Arrow. When I saw it for the first time in Super Street Fighter 2, Cammy doing it, she became my favourite character of the franchise. And she still is to this day. So when Tanya suddenly popped up in Mortal Kombat 4 being able to do the same thing, she became one of my favourites as well. I absolutely loved her in MKX, especially using her Kobujutsu weapons!

    My most hated move... is probably just fireballs. Just in general. It has become so generic a move that I don't care for it at all anymore. Because Ryu's Hadouken is the first one, that's the one I'm going to point out.

    Generic fireballs do get old after a while, except instant air gas blast :DOGE

    Favorite move ever is probably still the Skullo Dream from SFex, but on the nrs side I'd probably give it to the nut punch (literally any of them, it's just too good). Ferra/Torr's boss toss is also one of my favorite things ever.

    Least favorite? Mileena ball. Honourable mention hell sweeps.

    Oh you know what fuck that. The worst special move ever is Dairou's tombstone drop. No contest.
  11. Yeh man fuck that Kotal move. Everytime it hitted me i got so mad, like almost 5 whole seconds seeing the stupid grab.

    VSC_Supreme The Anti-Nerf Equation will be mine.

    If you're saying this is your least favorite, then you're wrong.
    If you're saying this is your favorite then you're right.

    My second favorite would have to be Kenshi's Flurry punch Just cause the idea of whooping someones ass thru telekinesis from a whole screen away is just dope.

    Cursa Counterpoke with armoured DB2 at all times.

    Man where to start
    • Batman J2. Post patch not AS bad but pre-patch BOY. Anti airing this with basically any character had to be pre-emptive.
    • Batman MB Batarang. Plus on block launcher, pass
    • Batman trait. "The Everything Tool"
    • Flash lightning kick. Is he gonna commit? Is he gonna backdash out of it? Is he gonna delay it? Is he even gonna do it at all?
    • Flash D1 staggers. Has a 100% chance to open someone up at least once a match.
    • Flash in general
    • And last but certainly not least; Supergirl Frost Breath. B O I
    I'd also like to give a special shoutout to SG float corner combo's because I am just being looped for infinity for like 30%.

    And anyone who says it's hard is lying.
