The Fighters Generation
Video Projects & Compilations

Enjoy a selection of unique video projects & compilations from TFG's YouTube. All of the videos here were created by yours truly, TFG Webmaster Frank Yagami. Besides running FightersGeneration.com for nearly 2 decades, believe it or not... I actually play fighting games. I've been creating gameplay videos ever since I was a kid back in the 90's (using VHS tapes & a VCR to capture SNES footage). As you can probably tell, creating "video art" is still something I still love to do. Under each video is a basic description of each project, followed by some bonus "website exclusive" behind-the-scenes details. If you like what you see here and you'd like to support future TFG video projects, donations are welcome via Twitch/Streamlabs. Thank you for watching!  (UPDATED: Oct. 14th, 2018)


Fighting EX Layer - Skullomania Skullo Dream +
Shadowgeist ε. Nightmare ALL VERSIONS!



"All normal & alt. versions of Skullomania's Skullo Dream and Shadowgeist's ε. NIGHTMARE in Fighting EX Layer, plus some "secret" moves... plus Alpha. Having fun with this game so far!"

Shoryuken.com Feature!  Link

Just a little compilation I threw together a few days after launch... I only wish I made it a tad longer. (Needs moar Skullo-slow-mo.) Fighting EX Layers brings back a lot of fond memories from the PS1 days. These super moves were always some of the most entertaining ones in the SFEX series. Arika delivered by bringing them back and exaggerating them in FEXL. Now it's time to win some matches with these. >:}


TEKKEN 7 - Steve Fox Dodge / Punish Guide Vs. Noctis



"CONTINUE? Welcome to my first punish guide for TEKKEN. I'm a firm believer that different people learn things in different ways. Personally, I learn from watching... not numbers. If you ever wanted to master Steve Fox in TEKKEN 7, this visual guide will teach you how to dodge & punish attacks properly - in this case, Noctis's entire moveset - all while listening to legendary Final Fantasy music. This guide is pretty comprehensive, but if I missed anything... feel free to share your tech in the comments section. If you enjoy this type of video, let me know in the comments and by hitting Like."

I designed this video to be enjoyable to watch even for non-diehard TEKKEN players. Final Fantasy fans should enjoy my music selection and Final Fantasy customizations. Fun Fact: This video required 250+ cuts and 150+ lines of text. It took a very long time in the editing lab. (Not my favorite type of video to make, but it was a learning experience.) If you have any suggestions or requests for future Tutorial videos from me, comment below!

TEKKEN 7: STEVE FOX 2018 - Epic Dodges & Sidesteps Compilation!




"From the creator of the original TEKKEN Steve Fox Compilation (reaching nearly 1 million views on YouTube)... the long-awaited TEKKEN 7 2018 edition features over 30 minutes of badass dodges, counters, sidesteps, crazy slow-mo moments, and insane comebacks with Steve Fox. I hope you find it to be worth the 7 year wait. Stay tuned until the end of the video for a message from yours truly.

I'm proud of this one... My best video to date, for sure. Lost count of how many hours I put into perfecting this video, from the visual & audio quality, to the music syncing with the action, to the particular moments that made the cut... this video pretty much took over my life for a couple of months. But hey, I love TEKKEN. This video is my love letter to the series. Over 300.000+ views for Steve Fox and TEKKEN? Worth it. :) This is also the first time I created a "teaser trailer" for one of my videos. 


Fighting EX Layer (Beta) Combo Video: Kairi, Allen & Skullomania



"TFG presents a Fighting EX Layer combo video starring Allen Snider, Kairi and Skullomania. For each character, I cover a wide variety of combos: beginner, intermediate, cross-ups, jump-ins, corner, etc. I didn't try to break the game during the beta... instead, I focused on combos that I think will make the cut to the final version of the game. If you plan on learning any of the above characters, definitely take a look at these combos. Hope all you SFEX originals enjoy my latest CMV!"

Shoryuken.com Feature!  Link

I usually add music to my combo videos and properly mix the volume levels... but the FEXL beta didn't have sound or music options, so the in-game sound had to stay. Anyway, I quite enjoy fighting game betas (even if I can't connect to many online matches). It's all about getting an early start in  practice mode and experimenting with the new combo system. So fun and addicting. FEXL is all about classic SFEX gameplay and combos, but obviously the game could use some polishing. I think it has potential.


TEKKEN 7 - Yoshimitsu's Bizarre Adventure Vol. 1



"My latest TEKKEN compilation video is here! Yoshimitsu's Bizarre Adventure Vol. 1 shows all the best moments of my Ranked Match travels up to Vindicator Rank Yoshi. Enjoy some epic finishes and crazy slow-mo moments along the way. My Yoshi still has a ways to go & many more tricks to learn... and will continue his cyber-squid-ninja training up to higher ranks (later in Vol. 2)!"

I've always been a fan of Yoshimitsu as a character... since the first TEKKEN really. I learned him a little bit in Soul Calibur 2 & Soul Calibur 3, but he never became "main" material for me. I relearned him again in Tekken 5, but still... I was much better with other characters. For some reason, his Tekken 7 incarnation really spoke to me. It might've been his cool new animations and combo style in T7 that made me want to learn him. At a time when some other characters have become more simplified (even in Tekken 7), Yoshimitsu's complexity really jived with me. He's probably the most complex character in Tekken 7... so many crazy options. Hence, this compilation was born. ;)


Street Fighter V - Akuma Teleport Combos



"A mini Akuma combo video. The only 'rules'... use a teleport within the combo! Fun stuff. Of course, there are much better and more practical options to extend Akuma's combo potential in SFV than using teleport (since it's pretty slow, and there's only one version of it). Nonetheless, enjoy these fun teleport combos to mix things up and STYLE ON your opponents! Also, FightersGeneration.com wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!"

SFV Akuma exceeded my expectations... the ol' Karate demon is still pretty fun to use. His Critical Art animation / camera angle should be better though. Anyway, I was feelin' the holiday spirit in this one. Merry Christmas! 


SFV - "Aegis Ambition" : 99 URIEN COMBOS!!



"99 Urien Combos... 1 video. Need I say more? Aegis Ambition features 99+ SFV Urien combos of varying different difficulty levels and in a wide variety of situations, such as:  Counter Hit, Crush Counter, Anti-Air, Corner Combos, Reflector Combos, and also some surprises. Aegis Ambition also debuts an ultra- unique "Combo Counter" which will inform you on how many combos have been performed as you're watching! (I believe it's the first of it's kind?)"

Shoryuken.com Feature!  Link

Relearning my 3rd Strike main was fun. I think Urien is easily one of the best characters in the game in terms of moveset design and "authentic translation" from a prequel. So I've been playing SFV for over a year (since beta #1), and while I've taken semi-long breaks... I gotta say SFV has been a lot of fun to come back to, as Capcom's latest updates have significantly improved things. This video also debuts TFG's new fire intro cinematic! ;)


KOF XIV: K' Komprehensive Kombo Kompilation



"Sit back, relax, and enjoy my first KOF XIV combo video! The K' is a combo beast. I've always enjoyed using him since way back in KOF '99 and his KOF XIV iteration is too sick. As usual, I aimed to make this video enjoyable watchable from beginning to end. ;) Enjoy the classic soundtracks and stay tuned for some "unexpected" special combos at the end."

Shoryuken.com Feature!  Link

 See... this is why K' gets such a good rating on TFG. I've been playing KOF XIV for a little over a week and I've spent most of the time learning K'. Pretty overwhelming considering the combo potential of just 1 character in a game of 50 characters. I definitely enjoy KOF XIV's combo system more than I thought I would... now I just gotta (fully) learn two more characters and I'll have my team ready! lol. 


TEKKEN: TTT2 Revival - Epic Cosplays, Replays & Combos



"The wait for TEKKEN 7 is real. ߘ? It's been a long time since I've uploaded a TTT2 video... but that doesn't mean I haven't been playing it. Tekken remains a weekly, sometimes daily thing for me. Yeah, I've taken a few (healthy) breaks, but TTT2 has been my main game for 4 years. This will change in 2017 when TEKKEN 7 arrives on consoles. It'll be the end of an era... and for me, a new beginning for creating videos and streaming. :) Can't wait. I put upwards of 50-60 hours into this video right here... so please enjoy. I do it for the Tekken / fighting game community."

 You know I have fun making my TEKKEN compilation videos. This one takes several months of footage from 2016, including some of the best replays, cool moments, and cosplays of the year. The video also features a cool "waiting for TEKKEN 7" opening and lots of SNK / KOF love.


SFV - Necalli: "Beast of Divinity" Combo Video + Storyline Theory! 



"TFG presents a "Double Impact" Street Fighter V video. Part 1 is a comprehensive Necalli combo video featuring basic to advanced combos (beta 4 gameplay). This combo exhibition will surely assist any player interested in learning how to use Necalli. Part 2 is a storyline theory comparing Necalli with another well-known Street Fighter character that he may be connected to. As always, I hope you enjoy the video in more ways than just one. Sit back, relax, and feel free to comment about the Necalli storyline theories I brought up (or we can talk combos)."

Shoryuken.com Feature!  Link

 I wasn't sure what I thought about Necalli when I first saw him... but he definitely grew on me as a design. After randomly deciding to learn Necalli in the 4th beta, I planned on just releasing a few match videos (which I also did), but I went ahead and got enough footage for a whole combo video (because hey, I was practicing his combos anyway). Then I bought a $269 Necalli statue from Pop Culture Shock (because it looks absolutely badass), and got a few more to sell later. So yeah, I guess you can say I'm now officially a Necalli fan. :)


SFV - R. Mika Epic Combos: "Drop The Mic!"



"TFG presents a SF5 R.Mika CMV / Combo Tutorial! This video was created during the 2nd SFV beta test. Combos are subject to change? (I hope not.) My returning SFA3 main pro-rasslin' gal is as fun to use as ever. And that's the bottom line... because Rainbow said so. Gameplay & Editing by F.Yagami of FightersGeneration.com."

Shoryuken.com Feature!  Link

It's awesome seeing one of your old fighting game mains return after 15+ years of being out of the ring. R. Mika was indeed my main in SFA3... we took many jabroni's down to roody poo lane together, and they sure weren't expecting it, since R. Mika was very much an underdog type of character. So happy to see her back... so I made this video. :)


SFV Beta #1 - Ryu Parry Compilation



"A compilation of Ryu parries from my experience in the Street Fighter V beta."

I'm a parry addict. It's one of the main reasons I've always loved the SF3 series... especially 2nd Impact & 3rd Strike. (And also one of the main reasons I dislike SF4). Rejoice, parrying is back in SF5... at least for one character. I wanted to a release Part 2 of this video, but I kinda stopped playing SFV after TEKKEN 7 was released.


Tekken World Wrestling: King Revolution



"Tekken is a completely different game depending on which character you are using. When I use King... Tekken is a WWF Attitude era wrestling game, where winning is glorious!!! I hope all pro-wrestling fans & fellow King / Tekken players will enjoy watching this video compilation as much as I enjoyed making it!"

 I've been watching pro-wrestling on & off since I was a little kid in the 80's... Like any true 80's / 90's kid, I have a few handfuls of favorite wrestlers (and theme songs). I also have fond memories of the late 90's "WWF Attitude" era... sadly, pro-wrestling will never be that good again. Anyhow, any wrestling aficionado can appreciate King's badass moves & play-style in the Tekken series. Back in Oct. 2014, I polished up my King... took him through the Tekken Revolution ranks online... and released this video in December 2014. Three months of hard work went into this thing (but I loved every minute)! Over 150,000+ views!


Tekken - Feng Wei : Badass & Stylish Replays Compilation



"From the creator of "Steve Fox Epic Dodges & Sidesteps" and "Epic & Badass Lars Moments" compilations, comes TFG's biggest Tekken compilation to date! The Chinese Kenpo Master, Feng Wei, indeed deserves his very own compilation. In the video, I demonstrate the many dynamics of Feng's play style, including: movement, evasion techniques, sidestepping, footsies, mix-ups, stance transitions, etc."

 After compiling a ton of footage in June / July 2014... I knew it was time for a Feng Wei compilation. The crazy thing is, I didn't even use all of my footage, but I had to END the video (or else it might've gone over 30 minutes). lol. While this video is a long one, I tried to make it watchable from beginning to end! So proud that this reached over +100,000 views!


Tekken - Steve Fox: Epic Dodges & Sidesteps



"A highlight video showing off Steve's various dodges in Tekken 6... all of which can be used very effectively as you can see. Steve Fox is played solely by FYagami in this video. (Soundtrack: This is My Rifle - Combichrist)"

 Since the days of Tekken 5 (2005), I've been known for using Steve Fox as my main at local arcades & tournaments. Years later, my Tekken boxing career extended online with Tekken 5: DR (reaching top 10 online) and Tekken 6 (top 20). On that note, I've had countess "GGs" online and met a lot of cool players over the years (and some sore losers, too). Thus, I knew I had to make a Steve Fox highlight video.

I'm truly humbled by how popular my Steve Fox: Epic Dodges & Sidesteps compilation became. I never imagined it would reach over
800,000+ views and become the reigning "most popular Steve Fox video on Youtube. (Hey, I'm quite proud of it, actually). My main goal with this video was to show Tekken "in a new light"... demonstrating how dynamic a single character can be, and in turn, inspiring more people to play Tekken. This "direction" really seemed to resonate with people, as I've learned by reading the comments that I accomplished by goal in inspiring others to learn Tekken (or simply improve their game).


Tekken - Epic & Badass Lars Moments



"Many months in the making.... A series of epic Lars moments. All footage taken from PSN Tekken 6 ranked battles over the years. (Soundtrack: XP8 - Adrenaline (remix) & Diskonnekted - Adrenaline)"

 Along with Steve Fox, Lars was one of my mains in the Tekken 6 era. What originally drew me to the character were his awesome, hard-hitting animations, badass moves & stances, and his dynamic, open-ended play style. I had mixed feelings about Lars when I first saw his design, but he soon became one of my favorite Tekken characters. Naturally, a video compilation was in order.
