Expert
1) Works best against Shotokans (Ryu, Ken, Akuma). Have enemy in corner. J.LP , J.LK , J.MP XX Guidable Optic Beam , S.LK , S.MP XX MP-Gene Splice [do not hit buttons for more hits], HP-Throw, S.HK , S.HK XX Mega Optic Blast, J.LP , J.HK XX Guidable Optic Beam

A lot of timing is needed for this combo. The Throw must be timed JUST right to work. If not timed right, it will punch instead of throw or it'll throw but just not count on the Combometer. Also, the height of the enemy when you hit with the first S.HK and the height of the enemy when you hit them with the Mega Optic Blast will determine whether or not you can combo the J.LP after-wards. Then, if you distanced and timed everything just right, the Guidable Optic Beam WILL combo. If not, it won't combo.

2) Have enemy near corner. J.DN.HP , J.DN.HK , D.S.LP , S.LK , S.MK XX Multi-Attacks [5 hits], S.LP , S.MP SJ SJ.LP , SJ.LK , SJ.MP, SJ.LP , SJ.LK , SJ.MP SJ DJ.LP , DJ.LK , DJ.MP, DJ.LP , DJ.LK , DJ.HP (FS) , DJ.HK (FS), DJ.HK (FS) , C.LK (OTG) , C.MP , S.HK , S.HK
