With Bae “Knee” Jae Min crowned the back-to-back Tekken champion of Combo Breaker 2019 after an unbelievable series, there were still plenty of amazing moments at the tournament’s top eight matches. Here’s what caught our eyes.
Yoon “LowHigh” Sun-woong dealt out an electrifying string of attacks against Hoa “Anakin” Luu, with the damage enough to bring the full health Jack-7 down for a KO.
Jeong “Rangchu” Hyeon-ho put fellow Korean pro Kim “JDCR” Hyunjin in his place with a well-timed donkey kick from his adorable, yet ferocious Panda. With that, Rangchu sent JDCR into the loser’s bracket.
Although he was knocked out of the top eight by Kang “Chanel” Seong-ho, Pling was able to put up a good fight against the ROX Dragon member. Here’s a clip of Pling dodging one of Chanel’s dark waves and finishing the narcoleptic vampire off with a quick combo.
Richard “Rickstah” Uehara surprised the Combo Breaker champion Knee with some good clutch moments. With Akuma, Rickstah gave Knee’s Bryan and his missed rage drive the perfect punishment in this highlight.
JDCR (Armor King)
In this clip, the T7 legend displayed his elite play-style against Chanel. JDCR’s Armor King ended Chanel’s run in the tournament with a devastating running grapple.
Rangchu again (Panda again)
The man and his panda strike back with another powerful display of their Tekken God status during the Winners Final. Rangchu basically mauled Anakin to a pulp after a well-predicted low parry. Beware the Panda.
The glorious Panda of Rangchu finally meets its maker his match against Knee. To throw off Rangchu, Knee switched to Kazuya and was able to capitalize with the new character. Check out this highlight where Knee literally beats Rangchu to the punch.
For our last highlight, we have our Combo Breaker runner-up Anakin proving that he is no pushover. This clip showcases Anakin’s “debug” rage drive that destroyed Knee’s Devil Jin. Although it may seem like a predictable move, Anakin successfully used debug two more times while facing Knee.
