Tokido's Raging Demon Pose:
At SoCal Regionals 2010 Tokido played against ClakeyD. He won the match with his Raging Demon Ultra, and while the animation played on the big screen Tokido got between the screen and the projector and replicated Akuma's pose perfectly. The Raging Demon icon was even placed perfectly across his back by the projector. It was an amazing moment and one that Tokido would do at some later events.
