Fighting game haiku


#1

Inspired by the fighting game limericks thread.

If you don’t know, a haiku is a form of Japanese poetry with 3 lines. The first and last both contain 5 syllables, and the middle one contains 7.

I’ll start you off:

Jab jab rocket punch
Sentinel is flying fast
Rush that shit down bitch

I do a safe poke
What the fuck is this bullshit
Umeshoryu


#2

crouch hard punch tackle
aegis reflector crouch fierce
tackle tackle fierce

q tactics for pros
taunt taunt taunt taunt taunt taunt taunt
capture deadly blow


#3

That is a special?
You build meter like nothing!
This game is broken!

How did you do that?
Down forward downforward punch?
Shoryuken! Yes!


#4

Am I missing something?
Isn’t umeshoryu 4? u-me-sho-ryu?
Isnt shoryuken! Yes! 4 too? sho-ryu-ken yes?
is it the ryu? you guys taking it as ri-yu? i believe its a composite syllable

unless you guys are being lenient on the 5-7-5 “rule”…


#5

it’s pronounced as one syllable in japanese i guess but i always pronounced it sho-ry-u-ken

p.s. i knew someone would mention this


#6

He blossoms forward
Sticks to the wall and gets shot
Strider’s life is short


#7

Habroken! I thought Shoryuken was 4 syllables by itself. INDEED.

If its a ‘composite syllable’ then…QUICK FIX!

How did you do that?
Down forward downforward punch?
“I just learned something!”

That last line is dedicated to you…and the ‘composite syllable.’ Indeed!

#9

#10

Funny you should mention that, it’s shoryuken = sho-u-ryu-u-ke-n 6 syllables according to a Japanese haiku actually :stuck_out_tongue:

“You call that a haiku? YOU’RE JUST COUNTING SYLLABLES!!!”
