Ryota "John Takeuchi" Takeuchi (ja: 竹内 亮太) (born March 21, 1998) is a Japanese Street Fighter player currently representing DetonatioN Gaming.

Information[edit]

He is known for his Rashid play in Street Fighter V. Takeuchi came into the spotlight when the r/kappa subreddit crowdfunded his travel expenses so he could compete at First Attack 2016, an annual tournament held in Puerto Rico. He took the funding honorably, absolutely smashed the competition at the tournament, quickly became a fan favorite among fighting game players.

In 2018, John Takeuchi returned to the spotlight when he took second place at EVO Japan 2018, losing only to Infiltration. He became known for his outgoing and friendly personality, and for being a rare example of a professional Japanese player who uses a Pad instead of the more traditional Arcade Stick.

He is also currently ranked as the 23rd best Street Fighter V player on the PGRSF 2016-19.
