This page covers Rei combos. Before diving right in be sure to familiarize yourself with Rei special moves and important normal moves.

Basic Combos

Like everyone else Rei has to kara cancel the sweep in order to combo a banishing strike (2D~CD).

Starters

2B > 2B > 2D

5A > 2B > 2D

2B > 5D > IAD j.B > j.C

2B > 5D > Banishing Strike (2D~CD)


Standard BNB Combo

2D > IAD j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 > j.BC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 9~C or 96 j.AC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AB > CD or 236236+A

Basic bnb which also leads to the chikuseki bug.


Max range 2D combos

When you are too far for his basic bnb Rei has several options:

2D (max range) > IAD j.C > land > Grave Shoot (A+C) > Followups:


1) A+C > sj.ABCD > 214+C


2) A+C > j.BD > 236+D > 214+C

Basic okizeme knockdown combo from a max range 2D. On the way down Rei can control which side he lands after he activates the barrier.


2D (max range) > IAD j.C > 236+C > j.ABC > finisher (CD or super)

2D (max range) > IAD j.C > f.5B > j.BC > 236+D > 66 > j.BC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > basic mid screen combo


Okizeme setup after a launcher

A+C or 214+C > 214+C > sj.D > 236+B > j.ABD > 214+C > okizeme


Banishing Strike combos

Notes: All those combos can be started with 5B > 5D > (2D~CD)

CD > 6 > (A+B~E or 2C or 5C) > A+C > 2369+D > j.B > 2C > IAD j.D > (2369+C) xN > 2369+D > Super (236236+A)

Basic setup for his air 236+C loop.


CD > 6 > 5C > 2C > j.B > 236+D > 66 j.B > 5C > j.B > 236+D > 66 j.B > (236+D > j.B) xN > 236236+A or 2363214+D

CD > 6 > 5C > 2C > j.B > 236+D > 66 j.B > 5C > j.B > 236+D > 66 j.C > 236+C > 2369+D > (j.B > 236+D) xN > 236236+A or 2363214+D

White version of the banishing strike combo for max damage if you can't do his 2369+C loop yet.

Note: On some characters Rei can switch to a boost 2A mid basket to increase the number of hits.

Kenshiro:

2Bx6 > E > 2Bx11 > E > (2Bx6 > E > 2Ax2 > 5Ax6) or (2Bx7 > E > 2Ax3 > 5Ax4) 2Ax9 > 2C > IAD j.B > basket activates

Dribble Setups

Note: Be sure to read the movement boost section under advanced techniques before attempting dribbles / basket.

Basic Dribble Pattern

Version #1

[dribble activates] d.5A (up to 50 hits) > [5C > IAD j.B] (up to 60 hits) > [5C > f.5C > IAD j.B] (up to 72 hits) > [2Ax10 > 2C > IAD j.B] or [j.ABC ]xN (basket pattern until 100%)

Version #2

[dribble activates] d.5A (up to 50 hits) > 5A > IAD j.B > 5A > CD > 5A > IAD j.B > 5A > A+C > sj. 236+D > [j.A > j.B] xN


Mid Screen Dribble from 2D

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD > j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 j.B > j.C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.C > 5A > 5A > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > 5Ax5 > Boost > 5A (use movement boost technique here: 5A~E) > 5Ax5 > 623+C > 236+E~C > j.B or 214+E~C > IAD j.B > 5C > IAD j.B > 5A > Dribble

Notes: Use 214+E~C on Jagi instead of 236+E~C

There are 3 routes:

1) IAD j.C > 5C > j.A > [j.B] > j.C Route

2) IAD > j.C > 5C > IAD > j.A > j.C Route

3) IAD j.C > 5C > 623+A > 236+C route

Options after crossing up with 99C (character dependent):

1) 2A > 5A

2) 5A > 5A (Heart)

3) 2A > 5C (Juda)

4) 5A > 5C (Jagi / Heart)

5) 5A (Mamiya / Jagi)

On Mamiya use this for the movement boost 5A part:

623+A > 236+C > 5Ax3 > Boost > 5A (5A~E movement boost) > 5Ax2 > Boost > 5Ax5 > 623+C (6 hits) > 236+E~C > j.B > 5C > IAD j.B > 5A > d.5A > dribble

It's quite hard to crossup Heart using the standard mid screen setup so use this instead:

Video Sample

(starting from almost full screen) 2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > 5C > IAD j.AC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.C (switch sides) > 5A > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > 5Ax5 > Boost > 5A > 5Ax5 > Boost > 5A > 5Ax3 > 623+C (6 hits) > 236+E~C > j.B > 5C > IAD j.B > 5A > d.5A > Dribble


Corner 623+C+E Dribble (Standard Setup)

Video Sample

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 j.BC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 9~C > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > 623+C (5) > E~j.C > 5A > 623+E+C (6) > 236+E~C > j.B or 214+E~C > IAD j.B > 5C > IAD j.B > 5A > d.5A > Dribble

Notes:

Insert 5A before 623+C on Toki and Raoh.

Use 9C > 623+A or 96AC > 623+A on Toki (skip 5C if you want the corner cross up setup) and use 96AC instead of 9C on Raoh/Mamiya (don't skip 5C).

Use 96AC > 623+E+C instead of 99AC > 623+C on Mamiya. Remember that the 2nd dp is ALSO a 623+E+C since you have to HSC the jab.


So on Mamiya the setup looks like this:

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 > j.BC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC >5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > [5A] > 623+E~C (5 hits) > E~j.C > 5A > 623+E~C (6 hits) > 236+E~C > j.B > 5C > IAD j.B > 5A > d.5A > Dribble


Hyakuretsu Setup

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 j.BC > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 9C > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > 5A > 5C > Super (17 hits) or 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > Super (22 hits)

Note: On Raoh replace 5C for 5A to make the corner hyakuretsu a bit easier since Raoh is a heavy type character.

Possible to Super > basket for less meter: Heart, Shin, Rei, Kenshiro, Souther, Raoh


'Mammuuutt 0 Super Bar Hyakuretsu (2.3 Boost)

Standard Dribble Setup > 623+C (6) > 236+CE > dj.B > 2B > Hyakuretsu


Corner Cross Up Dribble Setup

Video Sample

Possible to cross up on Rei's own corner: Rei, Ken, Heart, Juda, Jagi, Souther


Corner Cross Up Dribble Setup on Toki/Raoh

Toki:

Video Sample

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > delay 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 j.AC > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.B > 2A > 5A > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > 5Ax5 > E~5A > 5Ax4 > 623+C > 236+E+C > j.B > (236+D > j.B)2x > 5B > IAD j.B > 5A > Dribble

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 j.BC > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.BC > 5A > 5A > 623+A > standard mid screen dribble

Raoh:

2B > 2B > 2D > IAD j.C > 5C > j.AC > 236+D > 66 j.AC > Boost (optional) > 5A / 5C > f.5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > 5A > 623+A > 236+C > IAD j.AC > 5Ax5 > E~5A > 5Ax4 > 623+C > 236+E+C > j.B > 5C > IAD j.B > 5A > Dribble

2B > 2B > 2D > j.AC or BD > 236+D > 66 j.AC (side switch) > 5A > 5C > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.C (side switch) > 5A > 5A > 623+A > 236+C > 96 j.AC > Hyakuretsu or Corner Dribble

Note: On Raoh that's actually easier than the standard corner hyakuretsu.


Raoh Standard Corner Crossup Dribble

Video Sample

2B > 2B > 2D > sj.ABC > 236+D > 66 > j.AC (side switch) > 5C > f.5C > 623+A > 236+C > mid screen dribble

Popularized by KI's most beautiful bounce combo video this is probably Rei most practical setup against Raoh.
