A real Street Fighter-style Dragon Punch would decapitate you

No one ever said Street Fighter was realistic. Usually, when Ken or Ryu performs one of their signature moves, the Shoryuken, their opponents get up and shrug it off. I mean, some of the time.

YouTube channel Vsauce3 wondered what would happen if one of Ken Masters’ extra brutal dragon punches.

The video’s fun, and the part where a robot fist decapitates a dummy’s head is pretty awesome. It does have a bit of Mythbusters syndrome, though – there’s a lot of questionable math, and the dummy is strapped down to enhance the decapitation effect, among other things.

Regardless, the result is pretty clear – Ryu told Ken, “you must defeat my dragon punch to have a chance.” If you ran into Ken’s dragon punch, you wouldn’t even be standing. Or alive.
