Daigo Umehara (Japanese: 梅原 大吾, Hepburn: Umehara Daigo, born 19 May 1981) is a Japanese arcade fighting video game player. He specializes in 2D arcade fighting games, mainly those released by Capcom. Known as "Daigo" or "The Beast"[5] in the West and "Umehara" or "Ume" in Japan, Daigo is one of the world's most famous Street Fighter players, and is often considered its greatest as well.[6] He currently holds a world record of "the most successful player in major tournaments of Street Fighter" in the Guinness World Records.[7][8][9][10]

Before properly being called a pro gamer[11] from signing a sponsorship deal with Mad Catz,[12] Japanese media usually referred to Daigo as "the god of 2D fighting games" (2D格闘ゲームの神, 2D Kakutō Gēmu no Kami).[13][14][15][16][17][18]

Early career[edit]

Daigo began going to an arcade game center and playing fighting games as an elementary school student around 10 years of age.[11][19] Street Fighter II and Fatal Fury: King of Fighters had recently been released and were Daigo's first two fighting games.[11] Street Fighter II often had a very long line with older players, so he began learning Fatal Fury first.[11] After some time and due to the limited time he could stay at the game center, Daigo started challenging other players in Street Fighter II Dash (Champion Edition) for an opportunity to play even though he felt shy and had to ask for permission. This was when he discovered that he preferred competing with other players.[11]

Around the time when he was a 13-year-old middle school student,[11] Daigo shifted his main game to Vampire Hunter because he thought he was more skilled in that game than Street Fighter II.[11] He developed a reputation in Vampire Hunter by setting a 286-win streak record[20] in a single outing before he was forced to leave due to Akihabara Sega (now Club Sega[21]) game center closing for the day.[11][22][23] Umehara enrolled in his first tournament when he entered GAMEST Cup's national Vampire Hunter tournament in 1995,[24] losing in the block's finals.[25] His first tournament victory came at his second tournament, GAMEST Cup's national Vampire Savior tournament in 1997, where he defeated Ōnuki (now Nuki) in the finals.[25][26][27]

In 1998, at the age of 17 Daigo participated in Capcom's official Street Fighter Zero 3 national tournament and advanced to the finals which took place on a stage in Tokyo Game Show 1998: Autumn on October 11.[28] After winning the tournament by defeating Ōnuki 3-1, Daigo, as the champion, went on to face Alex Valle, the winner of the U.S. national Street Fighter Alpha 3 tournament. The international "Grand Championship" was held in San Francisco, California on November 8. This was Daigo's first trip to the U.S. and his first overseas tournament appearance.[29] The match was best of three games, with five-round games. Daigo came from behind to win 2-1.[30][31] Both events aired as a 50-minute TV report in Japan.[32]

In September 2001, Daigo's popularity led to the publishing of a mini-autobiography called VERSUS (known as "Umehon" (ウメ本) or "Ume Book" by fans). The book's content is separated into six chapters chronicling the games in which he competes and includes background stories, anecdotes of competitions, and analysis of his opponents.[22]

In 2002, Daigo appeared in a U.S. versus Japan exhibition in Japan. American players competed in four games (Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike and Marvel vs. Capcom 2) for the right to battle Japan's best players in those respective games. Umehara only entered the 3rd Strike exhibition, but defeated all of his opponents, ending each round with Ken's fierce Shoryuken. These events were filmed for the documentary Bang the Machine.[33][34]

In 2003, Daigo won the Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament in the first Super Battle Opera (Tougeki) and won the same game in Evolution Championship Series when he joined the event for the first time in the same year, making him the first player to win both the SBO and Evolution in the same year on the same game. Umehara also went to Evolution 2004 and Absolution 2004[35] on April 18 in England and won SSF2 Turbo there.[25][36]

Daigo has participated regularly in a number of tournaments, appearing in at least one each year since his start in 1997, with a brief hiatus in 2008.[25][37]

Evolution 2004[edit]

Despite having never matched off against him before, Umehara was known for having a supposed rivalry with the American Justin Wong due to their differences in gaming philosophies. The two players met each other in the loser's finals of Evo 2004's Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike tournament. Umehara, playing using the character Ken, was down to his last pixel of vitality and any special attack by Wong's Chun-Li could knock Ken out. Wong attempted to hit his opponent with Chun-Li's multihit "Super Art" move, forcing Umehara to parry 15 attacks in a very short period of time. Umehara did so successfully and went on to counter a final kick of Chun-Li in mid-air before launching a combo move himself and winning the match. Though Umehara lost the grand finals to Kenji Obata, the clip of him parrying Wong's multihit attack became hugely influential and has been compared to famous sports moments such as Babe Ruth's called shot and the Miracle on Ice.[38][39]

Street Fighter IV era[edit]

In July 2008, Umehara came out of retirement[40] and became competitive once again. This time, his focus was on the newly released Street Fighter IV. Because of this, Japanese arcade gaming magazine Arcadia has included a DVD featuring "Umehara Concept Matches" in its January 2009 issue (released on November 29, 2008) and "The God has returned" was stated in Umehara's player introduction part. The DVD contains exhibition matches between him and Japan's 6 top players such as Inoue, Itabashi Zangief, Fuudo, Nemo, and Mago.[41]

2009[edit]

On March 5, Umehara made an appearance as the "god of the fighting games world" on the TV show "Gamer's Koshien". He and four other top Japanese players (Soushihan KSK, Itabashi Zangief, Mago, and Tokido) competed with each other and with celebrities in a Street Fighter IV round-robin tournament.[14][42]

On April 18, at GameStop's Street Fighter IV National Tournament 2009 in San Francisco, California, four players from three countries held exhibition matches following the main competition. Umehara, who came by Capcom's invitation,[43] defeated players Iyo, Poongko and Justin Wong to win the tournament. For the win, he was awarded a free trip to Evolution 2009 in Las Vegas.[44][45]

Umehara began writing a column in Arcadia called Umehara Column: Michi, starting with the August issue.[46] ("Umehara Column: Street")

Thanks to his win at the GameStop tournament, Umehara entered the Evolution 2009 Street Fighter IV competition as a seeded player in the semi-finals on July 18, which was the second day of the event. In the third and final day, Umehara defeated Justin Wong and placed him in the Losers Bracket, then advanced to the grand finals only to meet Wong again. The two fought until the last game possible, but Umehara ultimately won the competition.[47][48][49]

The September issue[50] of Arcadia magazine included a DVD featuring a set of "Umehara's Concept Matches." This was a follow-up to a previous DVD which released in late 2008.[51][52][53]

On August 7, Umehara participated in an all night tournament called "GODSGARDEN."[54][55]

Umehara participated in exhibition matches in a Street Fighter IV competition in Taiwan on October 10.[56] The matches were broadcast live on Famitsu's web channel.[57]

Umehara returned to America to join a tournament called Season's Beatings, held October 16–18 in Columbus, Ohio.[58][59] He won Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Street Fighter IV Singles competition.[60][61]

On November 26, Umehara and five other top Japanese Street Fighter IV players joined a Nico Nico live internet show[62] to talk about the second GODSGARDEN tournament. The show also featured an exhibition match between Umehara and Mago.[63]

2010[edit]

Instead of participating in GODSGARDEN #2 (March 6),[64] Umehara flew to France to enter Street Fighter IV tournaments in the World Game Cup[65] gaming event, which took place March 3–7. He placed second in singles and first in 2-on-2.[66][67]

On April 4, Umehara and two teammates participated in an official Street Fighter IV National Tournament[68] and qualified for the top 14. His team was eliminated, in the quarter finals.[69]

Umehara participated in Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV "Fight Club" launch party in Los Angeles, United States on April 23.[70] Umehara held exhibition matches in which he played various characters including Hakan, Guy, and Dee Jay against a dozen challengers. The event closed with a 3-out-of-5 match[71][72] between Umehara and Justin Wong, ending in a double-K.O. draw which left Umehara undefeated all night. It was also revealed at the event that Umehara had accepted a sponsorship deal with Mad Catz and would play under their name in future tournaments.[12][73][74][75][76][77]

The limited edition of Super Street Fighter IV from the e-CAPCOM store included a special DVD featuring two tournaments between Japan's 8 top players: Umehara, Tokido, Iyo, Shirou, Kin Devu, Momochi, Tokidoki Nukings, and Itabashi Zangief.[78][79] The Super Street Fighter IV Technical Guide published by Enterbrain which was released on April 28 includes a DVD featuring exhibition matches of the new characters played by Japan's 7 top players: Umehara, Tokido, Kin Devu, Iyo, Momochi, Itabashi Zangief, and Shirou.[80][81]

On May 9, Umehara appeared on the NHK Sunday night program "MAG-NET" in a feature about Street Fighter.[82][83]

On May 15, Nico Nico Live held a Super Street Fighter IV online competition where participating online players on Xbox Live got a chance to fight Japan's 3 top players: Umehara, Mago, and Tokido. They also held offline matches and a brief talking segment.[84]

May 29–30, Umehara went to Australia for the first time to participate in Evolution Asia Pacific's Super Street Fighter IV tournament in Sydney. He won the tournament, losing just one game.[85] As the grand prize, he earned a paid flight to Evolution 2010 in Las Vegas where he would start off as a seeded player.[86][87][88][89][90][91][92]

On June 4, Umehara joined the 106th Xbox Live Park online event held by Microsoft Japan with Famitsu's editorial department. During the two-hour event, participating Xbox Live Gold members had the opportunity to chat and face off with Umehara in Super Street Fighter IV online matches.[93]

After getting 2nd place in Nagoya Street Battle 15 (July 4),[94] Umehara joined Evolution 2010 on July 9–11 and faced a tougher challenge than before with over 1,700 players[95] from around the world participating in the Super Street Fighter IV tournament. Nevertheless, Umehara secured a win without ever dropping into the Losers bracket. The live stream of the event set a new record with an approximate 48,000 viewers at its peak across its two channels (Stickam 18,000 and Ustream 30,000).[96][97][98][99][100]

After winning the qualifier on May 22,[101] Umehara's team participated in the Super Battle Opera 2010 Street Fighter IV finals on September 19 and won second place. The event took place as a part of Tokyo Game Show 2010 at Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex.[102]

Umehara participated in the Season's Beatings tournament in Ohio for the second time October 15–17,[103] the Southern California Regionals tournament in Los Angeles November 6–7,[104][105][106] the Canada Cup in Canada November 13–14,[107] and the Northern California Regionals tournament November 20–21.[108] He also attended an exhibition event in Kuwait on November 26.[109]

2012[edit]

Umehara published his first book The Will to Keep Winning (勝ち続ける意志力[110], Kachitsuzukeru ishiryoku) on April 2, 2012.[111] The book reached the #1 best-selling spot on Amazon Japan's Kindle store.[112]

2013[edit]

On April 13, 2013, Daigo attended the New York University Game Center's fourth annual Spring Fighter event as a special guest alongside Seth Killian. At the event, Umehara and Killian held a talk, in which Umehara discussed his life in and out of the Street Fighter scene.[113]

On June 6, 2013, Daigo spoke at the first in a series of seminars hosted by Tohmatsu Innovation Co, Ltd. targeting business executives.

On Aug. 30, 2013, Daigo had a match against the 2013 EVO Champion Xian. The rule was the first to win 10 matches will be declared the winner. Daigo won the match with a incredible result 10-0 against the world Champion Xian.[114]

A couple of Months later, in a similar match, Daigo beat Infiltration 10-2.[115]

Both matches had many views on YouTube and are considered examples of flawless Street fighter play.

On November 24, 2013, Daigo held a panel at the DODA career fair where he spoke about his experiences as a professional gamer.

2015[edit]

During the Stunfest 2015 final, Daigo managed to pull off an impressive 25-hit combo with Evil Ryu against Ken controlled by Momochi who was the best Ultra Street Fighter IV player of the season according to the Capcom Pro Tour 2015 ranking.[116] The combo thrilled the crowd[117] and was acclaimed by the live french[118] and english[119] commentators. It was selected by Capcom as one of the «Most Hype Moments» of 2015 in a retrospective video.[120] « You could hear the crowd go wild and if you were watching the stream you could see the stream chat go crazy[121] » wrote Capcom in an article,[122] while a french spectator who was in the crowd said that « Daigo's incredible 25-hit combo with Evil Ryu stunned the crowd and the opponent ».[123] Daigo finally won the tournament beating Momochi 3-1, 3-1.

Umehara penned a foreword for the September issue of Japan's Harvard Business Review, with the title "得意なことより好きなことを追求する" ("Tokui na koto yori suki na koto wo tsuikyuu suru"|"Pursue that which you like rather than that at which you excel").

In December 2015, Umehara announced his intentions to donate the entirety of his winnings from the Capcom Pro Tour 2015 Finals, a sum of $60,000, to the Evo Scholarship, a New York University scholarship program which offers financial assistance to students wishing to study game design at the NYU Game Center at the Tisch School of the Arts.[124] The NYU Game Center confirmed the $60,000 donation on January 6, 2016.[125]

Street Fighter V era[edit]

2016[edit]

The January issue of the Japanese Harvard Business Review featured a twelve-page interview with Umehara entitled, "感情を制するものはゲームを制す" ("Kanjou wo seisuru mono wa game wo seisu"|"He who controls his emotions controls the game.")

In February 2016, Daigo was narrowly defeated by American rapper and music producer Lupe Fiasco in a Street Fighter V exhibition match.[126] The event, organized by former Mad Catz executive Mark Julio, was live streamed to over 75,000 viewers. Several observers noted that Daigo's timing appeared to be off, and that he did not capitalize on key strategic openings during the match.[126] On April 26, 2016, Daigo held a talk in conjunction with Mizuho bank and medical professor Yoshiki Ishikawa in Osaka, Japan.[127]

In May, 2016, Daigo appeared in the Street Fighter documentary, "格闘ゲームに生きる” (Kakuto geemu ni ikiru | Living the Game), broadcast on WOWOW. Later that month, the documentary was screened at the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto, Canada under the name "Living the Game."[128]

Daigo became the most feared player among the Capcom competitive circles when he defeated Alex Valle during an official Street Fighter Alpha 3 world championship in 1998 (creating a legion of copycat V-Akuma players overnight with his infamous Demon Flip Vism combo). Since then, his fierce reputation has not diminished, as he consistently places in the top three in the majority of the 2D games he enters. If you want to be considered the best in the world, you have to be able to defeat this guy consistently (sorry...lucky flukes don't count).
