General Combo Tips

  • How to do the jLP jHP restand (part 1) (part 2)
  • For the 2MK jMP jHK restand, it's key to delay the jHK as much as possible, and to delay the 2MK on lightweight characters.
  • How to perform instant Tumbling Run moves
  • For Run Stop links, hold forward+LKMK during the hitstop of 5HP, wait for your Run Stop to come out, then make your link.
  • After a Pummel Horse, you can always link a 2MP after the stagger, regardless if the opponent shakes or not. It's a 5f link but the long delay and lack of visual cue makes it trickier than usual. Try timing it the moment after Cerebella's hat lands back on her head.
  • For combos that end in 5LPx2 5MP 5HP Copter, you could alternatively do:
    • 5LPx2 2MK 6HP Excella - same damage but builds more meter. Unreliable on Bella/Beo/Double when midscreen.
    • 5LPx2 2MK 6HP Copter - more damage, corner only.
    • 5LPx2 2MP 5HP Copter - slightly less damage but more consistent midscreen when the spacing is a little wide (eg. after jLPxN jHP)
    • 5LPx2 2MP 5HK Copter - slightly less damage, slightly more meter gain, more time to input 623 if your execution isn't quite there yet, works OTG.

Beginner Combos

If the bread and butter combos are too daunting, try to become comfortable doing each of these combos. Start with the first, then move to the next one. When you play matches, it's good enough to use the one you can perform the most consistently. Once you can do all of them, try learning the combos in the following sections!

1.
2LK 2MP 2HK
A basic ground chain combo ending in sweep. Safe on block.
2.
2LK 2MP 5HK Copter
A basic ground chain combo ending in a special cancel. Unsafe on block, so don't do the Cerecopter if you notice your opponent is blocking.
3.
2LK 2MP 5HK Copter Dynamo
A basic ground chain combo ending in a super cancel.
4.
2LK 2MP 2HP
jMK jHK
OTG 2LK 2MP 2HP Excella Dynamo
A basic combo with an air chain. Does solid damage for its simplicity. (video)
5.
2LK 2MP 2HP
jMK jHK
OTG 2LK 2MK
jMP jHK
2MP 5HP Copter Dynamo
A basic combo that sets up a restand. After the restand, you can choose to go for a reset such as 2LK, MGR, instant j2MP, instant jHP, Kanchou, etc.

Universal

  • Reliable midscreen combo with serviceable damage and multiple reset points. If you're only going to know one combo, make it this one.
  • Uses OTG.
  • Does about 100 more damage with maximum jLP mash.
  • On Big Band, to land OTG 2LK after a jHK, a micro dash is usually required. If you don't like doing that, learn a Band-specific combo.

  • Uses OTG and stagger.

Midscreen

Universal

  • A difficult midscreen-only combo that uses Kanchou wallbounce, Pummel, and RS links.
  • Doesn't work if your back is close to the corner.
  • Doesn't use OTG, so if you end up in the corner you could do a second Dynamo or a green-sparks Butt to kill.

Corner

Universal

  • Extremely high damage universal corner combo.
  • Input Butt+Brass with [4]6LKHP or [4]6MKHP depending on team order. This has to be during 5HP's hitstop on heavier characters or Brass won't come out quickly enough.
  • Recommended to do Excella 5LPx2 and Pummel 5LK on Double/Band, since Excella 2LK/5LK is a difficult link on those characters.
  • You can Dynamo between Excella and the OTG pickup if you want, though that meter is better used for DHCs.
  • Uses OTG.
  • See video for more details.
