Du "NuckleDu" Dang is an American Street Fighter player.

Information[edit]

Playstyle[edit]

NuckleDu initially developed fame for his highly aggressive Guile play, contrary to the common strict defensive style the character is typically suited for. Typically bullying his opponents into corners, NuckleDu's victories tend to look as if the skill gap between the players is much greater than it actually is. He sets a fast pace in his matches and favours taking initiative through blockstrings and forcing his opponent to constantly adapt to keep up. He does not mind deviating from the idea of a "clean" playstyle, trading for damage and making risky decisions. He uses a controller rather than a fight stick.

The release of Ultra Street Fighter IV saw him adopting Decapre into his gameplan for certain matchups. In Street Fighter V he is notable for his R.Mika and Nash play.

He is also notable for taunting his opponents into frustration when overwhelming them with his aggression - specifically using Guile's aviators.
