C/D 6D ... - Also the same combos, works at a larger distance.
2C 6A/3C/6D ... - Strong combo off low.

... 6A/3C/6D 214D 214D 236B+C ... - Normal Shadow Combo setup
... 6A/3C/6D 623P 214P 236B+C ... - Delaunch setup
... 6A/3C/6D 623B, 623D - Corner only.

236236P, 2A+B, C 6D ... - Super must hit close to connect this.
236236P, 66 C 6D ... - Works better from a distance.

A+D, 6A 214D 214D 214D - Works anywhere on Tiger and Huang
. Also works throwing into or out of the corner on Monk, and on Scorpion.
A+D, 6A 214D 214D 236B+C ... - Leads to Delaunch combos.
A+D, 66 C 6A ... - Works on Tiger in the corner or Huang anywhere.

... 236B+C, 66, 623D, 623D, 623B, 623D - Boring but it works.
... 236B+C, C 3C, 623B, 623B, 623D, 623B - Works in the corner.

41236A+B, C/D 6D ...

... 6A 623P 214P 214B+C, 66(Run) C 6A 214B, 66 C 6A 214B, 66 C 6D 214D 214D 236B+C..- 60%+ damage. Only requires 1 stock to do. Doesn't work on Crane?

... 6A 623P 214P(Monkey Boy will switch sides here) 214B+C, 66(Run) C 6A 214B, 66(This run is optional sometimes) C 6A 214B, 66... You have three options here:
1 - Repeat the combo from the first C/D if you want to do some loops, and you can do 100% from only one bar, and a jumping attack(Like on the beginning of the match! Monkey Boy can do incredible punish combos thanks to his loops, and that's what makes him scary if he has meter). Note that Monkey Boy will switch sides again if you want to do his loops;
2 - C 6D 6A 214D 214D 214D (It's the most damaging way to finish the combo in case you don't have meter, or if you want to save your meter for a better situation);
3 - C 6D 6A 623P 214P (You'll get more meter - but less damage than the above - with this, because Monkey Boy auto-taunts at the end of it). (Note: This combo doesn't work on Crane, because she somehow ducks under a fruit. If you need a video, click here to see it. I use the 100% version on this one.)

... 6A 623P 214P 214B+C, 66(Run) C 6D 214B 214B, 66 C 6D 6A 623P 214P 214B+C..- Works on Crane, and will do near 70% damage from 1 bar. With 2 bars, the 100% is possible. Click here to see the combo.
