Fighting game commentator Steve ‘Tasty Steve’ Scott delivered a hilarious (and remarkably accurate) impression of the Tekken character ‘Panda’ during Tekken World Tour event 'The Mixup’s' Top 8.
Sunday’s Top 8 saw Tekken pros Fursan | Rangchu and Rox Dragons | Chanel face off in the Losers’ Final.
Rangchu, using Panda, was down one 1-2 when Tasty Steve pulled off an impression of the character during her intro.
He made a sound exceptionally similar to Panda’s grunt - although his impression was slightly louder (and much more hilarious).
Fellow commentator Spaghetti ‘Spag’ Rip cracked up at his impression, and Steve did it again - much to the chat’s amusement. Not much commentary happened following this impersonation: the two could barely follow the action on screen after Steve’s sound effects.
“Yo, my dude is dying right now. This is hilarious. Come on, bro! Get it together!”
Following the match - which Rangchu took 3-1 - Chanel’s fight stick malfunctioned, giving Rangchu a round as per the Tekken World Tour ruleset. The error ended up killing Rangchu’s momentum, and Chanel took the set 3-2, knocking Rangchu out of the tournament at 3rd place and moving on to the Grand Finals.
Chanel went on to fight teammate Rox Dragons | KNEE, who took the tournament 3-0 over Chanel after the latter’s 3-2 bracket reset. The Mixup was the final tournament in the Tekken World Tour for Tekken 7’s first season.
This isn’t the first tournament where Rangchu placed highly with Panda, either. He likewise made Top 8 during the 2018 Evolution Championship Series with the character, in the largest fighting game tournament in the world - and the largest Tekken tournament in history.
