There's some wildly flashy combos and confirms possible against Dhalsim's stretchy limbs in Street Fighter 6 as showcased by Desk

Dhalsim can be one of the most annoying characters to battle in Street Fighter with all of his tools to keep you at a very long arm's length away from him, but those stretchy limbs can also be a big risk for the yoga master.

Desk just released a new combo showcase video playing "Hit the Poke" again this time in Street Fighter 6 where there's some really interesting confirms that are possible you likely never even thought about.

Things start quickly with a classic Ryu hitting Dhalsim's extended punch with a Shoryuken, except this one trades for the Shoto and gives him enough time to hit the opponent on the other side of the screen with an Overdrive Denjin-enhanced Hadoken as he falls into Shinku Hadoken to close the round out.

Punching Rashid's Yssar obviously doesn't go well for Sim either with the wind master being able to run up for a full confirm including four Eagle Spikes in one combo finished by his Super Rashid Kick.

We also get to see some flashy full-screen confirms from Juri, Luke, Chun-Li, Ryu again, Kimberly, A.K.I., JP, Marisa and Blanka to cap things off.

Obviously, most of these setups aren't very practical for actual matches, but it's still fun to see what's possible with the juggle potential in this game off of Punish Counters.

Plus, seeing Dhalsim's favorite tools turned against him is pretty cathartic too.

You can have fun in Desk's new combo video below set to some music from Street Fighter EX.
