Ludwig Reacts to Sakurai's Terry Bogard Stream

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Late and alone.

I was never going to be able to watch Masahiro Sakurai's livestream of Terry Bogard facing the fury in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate live at 8 AM Eastern time today. Terrible timing. I got things to do then.

So I have to watch the video-on-demand, and once I get past that, I could unlock access to the rest of the Internet, which surely is discussing nothing but this livestream.

So I'm hyped to watch and react to every moment of this, not because I care about or even know who Terry Bogard is, but I have a lot of Discord notifications to check. Let's go...

 
Watch Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mr. Sakurai Presents “Terry Bogard” from Nintendo on www.twitch.tv


5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright...
[5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Once I get past....
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...An hour and twenty two minutes?
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's not 45 minutes.
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, then I can use the Internet again.
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Maybe I should fast-forward.
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If it's around 45 minutes...
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Then it should start...
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 82 - 45...
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 37 minutes in.
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...nope it starts way before that.
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: skips to 29 minutes
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
Everyone 10+ to Teen appears at 30 minutes in.
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Huh?
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: How is there more than one ESRB rating if it's supposed to just be about one game?
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai discussing his awards.
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He has FOUR Pro Controllers.
[5:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is he gonna play with his feet?
[5:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai having nostalgia about renting arcade games in Japan.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai has a laugh track.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He went to a lot of candy stores as a young adult playing Metal Slug.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We don't have dedicated candy stores.
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai advertised the Xbox in Banjo's live stream. Now he's advertising the Neo Geo X, deeming it a pre-cursor to the Switch because it had a docking station enabling TV play.
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'll note that Sakurai hasn't given this kind of history for the other characters, probably because other people know who the other characters are.
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai finally advertises the Nintendo Switch.
"Play Fatal Fury Special" and "King of Fighters '95" on Arcade Archives.
But "King of Fighters '98" has "strategic elements".
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This video was recorded in early October.
Why was this recorded as a "livestream"?
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Erm, marketed?
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Twitch is giving me an ad break for a Google Pixel 4.
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Just as Sakurai was insulting younger generations.
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I was often asked, who is Samus?" In Smash Bros. 64
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai acknowledges most people don't know who Terry is.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry stole Ken/Ryu's "always face opponent" gimmick.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Wario's dash attack.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Ryu's down-tilt.
[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, his A-moves aren't interesting so far.
[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He also took Ryu's down-air.
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I mentioned dodge attack."
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry has a special attack after spot-dodging.
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry also has weak and strong versions of his special attacks, much like Ryu.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And a command input.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Quarter-circle.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For the side-b.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, no one's gonna use Terry his skill floor is already too high.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder that Ken and Ryu are very rarely used because of their skill floor.
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Except at least Ken and Ryu are classic characters.
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No one knows who this guy is.
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry has a different move for his away-side-b than his towards-side-b.
[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They both move forward (hence he's constantly facing opponent).
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry getting invincibility frames on his up-b.
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why can't Little Mac get an easier recovery? :(
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Canceling Special Moves"
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Street Fighter dudes can cancel their regular moves)
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai saying "bread and butter combo" which is fighting game lingo.
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Final Smash is a Triple Geyser which, if it hits, goes into more punches.
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...And here's Terry's gimmick that makes him broken.
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He gets a Go icon when his percent raises above 100%.
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Super Special Moves"
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With a complicated command input.
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So can he just spam these as much as he wants?
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Once he's above 100%?
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I hope he's a lightweight character.
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There are also simplified command inputs" hmm.
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Easy to shield these.
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You can use it again and again."

Little Mac can only KO Punch once. :(
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can cancel into these.
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The in-game tournament is called "King of Fighters" while the game name is "The King of Fighters"
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The "King of Fighters Stadium" is basically fighting in a home run contest.
[5:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With walls until they have a certain amount of percent, then it breaks and they get KO'd.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I kinda like some of this music I guess.
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai's going over cameo appearances of characters from Fatal Fury that appear in the background.
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And other SNK series.
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Twitch giving me an ad break for Subway.
[5:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IF Ace Attorney gets in Smash it's gonna get so much love, right?
[5:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Mai Shiranui will unfortunately not be joining" well I dunno who she is so alright.
[5:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I'm done providing information."
He's playing classic mode now.
[5:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai finds it difficult to provide commentary and play at the same time.
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: All his matches are stamina... just like the Street Fighters.
[6:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry is destroying that CPU Bowser. :(
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai thinks Palutena could "possibly" be a homage to Athena of Greek mythology.
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Shouldn't he know better than anyone?
[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Everyone's getting old... but they're still on active duty."
[6:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai says "yikes."
[6:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Namco forgets that they made PAC-MAN and have a character in Smash.
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Now for a scary one... Bayonetta."
[6:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Did he play Super Smash Bros. For Wii U?
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "She's soooo good."
[6:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai edited out the bonus stage.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Masahiro Sakurai plays Classic Mode 9.9 Terry Bogard
Masahiro Sakurai got a perfect result!


[6:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Talking about music now.
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Chose music outside of Fatal Fury and to SNK in general.
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Similar to the Namco medleys with PAC-MAN.
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wait what
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FIFTY SONGS?
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sent the 50 songs to SNK and SNK said to use all of them.
[6:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (So the opposite of Square Enix?)
[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Says this makes the Fighters Pass is worth may more than its price due to just the music.
[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Mii Fighters?
[6:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: gulp
[6:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nakoruru for Swordfighter
Ryo Sakazaki for Brawler
Iori Yagami for Brawler
Akira for Brawler (isn't he already in this?)
Jacky for Brawler
[6:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: amiibo lineup.
[6:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Eww.

[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Version 6.0 update?
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Small improvements to Battle Arenas"

[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...but they're preset.
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PEOPLE WHO MADE ARENAS CAN CHANGE RULES
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHILE IN THE ARENA
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHHHHHHHH
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Elite Only" as an arena type.
[6:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Terry is out today.
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I think that wraps it up."
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is 7 minutes longer. >.>
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, they're showing the "complete reveal trailer"
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: and Sakurai wrote it.
[6:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But the staff rewrote it or something.
[6:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well those cameos on the stage are appearing in that reveal trailer so it makes slightly more sense now.
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright.
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is it o-..
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai: We crammed in a little too much content this time. Hopefully I'll be able to make future showcases a little shorter.
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The livestream has concluded. Thank you for watching!"
[6:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well then.
[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Whatever.
[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Still don't care about Terry Bogard.



The patch notes for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are available here, and Jigglypuff got buffed. That's by far the most exciting news of the day. Who cares about Terry? Let's try Jigglypuff!


Terry Bogard was first revealed in the September 2019 Nintendo Direct.
It turns out that Terry is very popular right after his release. See that popularity quantified here.

  1. All 3 people who know who Terry Bogard was before his reveal trailer must be excited. At least it is only a matter of time until DLC fighter #5 is revealed.

    1. I don't have high hopes for them!

      I'm also nervous that I'll have to watch The Game Awards 2019 to see Fighters Pass fighter #5.

      (Don't call 'em DLC Fighter #5... Piranha Plant is #1!)
