What sets Carmine apart from others is his use of dissolves in combos. Some moves set dissolves while some can even use them mid combo. Using these dissolve manipulators in combos will stack extra damage while some can even grant new combo opportunities. For example, if the dissolves used after 214x or 5BB hit the enemy, it will of course do extra damage; but after grab, you can combo into 236A if a dissolve was set nearby thanks to this mechanic. Not all combos will end with dissolves left behind, but knowing the placement of your dissolves for combos that do can also be important in setting up any potential oki.
In nuetral, your combos will likely start with his 5A, 2C, or grab. Sometimes, you may also end up hitting opponents with 5BB which can go into 214BC for a full combo. Like other characters, 2B is his anti air and 2A is used for his low mixups. His j.A is a great air button with a crossup hitbox to boot so finding confirms off of these are crucial. Additionally, Carmine is able to reverse beat which makes his combo potential all the better.
Carmine wants to end combos with j.B, j.C, 214C, or most importantly, his 5AAA ender for the lifesteal. Although 5AAA side switches, the cross raid mechanic ensures that opponents will land on the same side while also granting extra damge.
