    They should have added Megaman X2's Shoryuken to the list to make it even better.

    I think the kurby fighter uppercut and the original mario jump uppercut should of been on this

    I actually got chills when I watched the Shoryuken video at the end :D!!

    I beg to differ on Punch-Out, it's possible on a few enemies to knock them completely out with a star punch.

    What about Spider-Man 2's uppercut? I always found it incredibly satisfying to punch and thug the chin, watch them go flying then hit the ground again with a thud. Good times.

    Great article, nice homage in the end to SF and all its clones. I see you Rock'em sock'em robots...I mean Tekken.

    You also overlooked Fatal Fury's Joe Higashi's Screw Upper. It should have been right beside Kazuya's Lightning Screw Upper. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaZXXgo2Bnc&feature=related Of course, neither compare to BlazBlue: Continuum Shift's Makato Astral Finish that has her upper cut her opponent straight through the moon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFDFMCoHHAc

    Killer Instinct references make me happy. I remember that game came with a free watch when got it. Yay!

    Bravo Miguel....bravo! I have to admit, the first thing popped into my mind when I read the headline was Mortal Kombat. Never been a huge fan of the games, but uppercuts are so fucking visceral. I think it's the combination of the screen shake and the sound. BLAM!

    MORTAL KOMBAT!!!

    Classic Mikel article,I think you hit everything I could think of when reading the headline. I think like most I associate the uppercut with SF and MK

    Lovely article Mr. Reparaz

    BLOODY ROAR Yugo The Wolf has THE best uppercut watch this --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAiTfMaE3qY

    No Grand Upper in an article on Gaming's Greatest Upper Cuts? That's one thing that Streets of Rage did beyond a shadow of a doubt better than Final Fight! Is Mr. X behind this omission?! That's the only logical explanation!
  • d3v - September 29, 2010 10:01 a.m.

    Funny that Cody's uppercut is the one uppercut that you do not want to see because it means that you screwed up his infinite. Also, Balrog is bad ass, he's always one of the best characters in any Street Fighter game he appears in.

    M-Bisons duck face FTW!!!
  • Xenos - September 29, 2010 3:55 a.m.

    Ahh how could you forget the game that is named after one of the main characters moves? "BARE KNUCKLE"!
