Sure, we all know that fish love playing Pokémon, but did you know that they also throw down in Street Fighter II? Time to watch them fight!

Of course they aren't really fighting. Just like in Fish Plays Pokémon, the buttons are mapped to whatever part of the tank they happen to be swimming. Let's watch them go:


Look at them button mash! Here are some player descriptions, according to their owner.

Player 1 — Aquarius

Quick and agile, Aquarius has an aggressive fighting style which relies on rapid movement and flowing combos. However, his headstrong approach in a match can become his undoing when he finds himself running directly into his opponent's fist over and over... and over... and over…


Player 2 — Robert the Bruce

Robert the Bruce is much more methodical in his technique, often pausing and waiting to counteract his opponents style, then striking at the most opportune moments.

For those of you wondering who the heck "Robert the Bruce" is, please see his Wikipedia article

TLDR: King of the Scots, famous warrior, lead Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence against England, just generally a total bad-ass.


Well, they could probably still beat me.
