Basic Combos

Basic Combos/Strings/Conversions
Combo Position Damage Works on Difficulty Notes Recipe Video Ver
PC PS4/5
5P > 5P > 5P > 2P Anywhere 62 Everyone [1] Very Easy - 5P doesn't combo into much on hit, so your goal here is a favourable situation.

- Leaves Faust 0 on hit. - Leaves Faust at a decent range to play footsies with 5H

Link 1.23
f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 65 Everyone [1] Very Easy -Long distance challenge against forward movement.

-Excellent whiff punish. -Go to option from f.S. -Let 2H rock on block, -14. 236P on block is -23, be forewarned. -2H whiffs at max f.S distance.

Link 1.23
f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 65 Everyone [1] Very Easy Link 1.23
2H > (236P) Anywhere 40 Everyone [1] Very Easy - You can confirm from 2H alone. Delay the cancel so you don't throw item on block.

- Sometimes you'll want to forgo f.S, when hedging against moves that would crush f.S (Yolo 6P, Sol's 214SGGST Sol Badguy 214S 1.pngGuard:

, etc). - Catches toes where f.S would be blocked.

Link 1.23
6D or 4D > OTG 2D > (236P) Anywhere 89 Everyone [1] Very Easy -Throw into OTG 2D Link 1.23
6P > 236S Anywhere 71 Everyone [1] Very Easy - A tricky confirm, but can be worth it.

- Creates tons of great situations for you, unless whiffed or blocked on the ground. - Plus on air block, so you can go for a cheeky c.S meaty for some great reward. - This used to require CH 6P to work, but not anymore.

Link 1.23
6P > (236P) Anywhere 35 Everyone [1] Very Easy - Usually the better option over 236S.

- Gives you great spacing with items to either pressure the opponent or wall them off. - On CH, you can easily go for 2 items or 1 item + safejump. 2H is also a great option after if you're close enough.

1.23
c.S > 2S > 5H > (236P) Anywhere 97 Everyone [2] Easy - Go to meterless option.

- Lots of layered, high-reward frame traps in this string. - Can go into 2H on block in place of 5H. Depending on spacing might be safe, based on matchup. - Can go into 236S frame trap on block, challenge attempts to punish 2H.

Link 1.23
2K(3) > 2D > (236P) Anywhere 59 Everyone [2] Easy -Low option, sets up cool item situations.

-When you have RC, very potent when mixed with 2K > 2D. -Unsafe on block, but 236S traps always on deck. -Raw 2K leads to throw mix from disadvantage (You're -2 after), but the cancel options of 2D, 5D and 236S allow you control of the situation

1.23
c.S jc > j.2K Anywhere 74 Everyone [2] Easy - Done low enough to the ground, this is a pretty safe string to poke with.

- Further ranges work much better on block, and can be used to bait options from your opponent such as DP. - Works well with crawl to set up opportunities on block, and is good for setting up fast meaties to catch people pressing buttons on hit.

1.23
CH c.S > 5H > 41236K Anywhere 108 Everyone [2] Easy - Go-to CH confirm.

- Wall breaks with homerun timing as you approach the corner. - Great routing to wallbreak with RC.

Link 1.23
CH 2S > 5H > 41236K Anywhere 92 Everyone [2] Easy - alternate CH confirm.

- Wall breaks with homerun timing as you approach the corner. - Great routing to wallbreak with RC.

Link 1.23
CH 6H > 41236K Anywhere 93 Everyone [2] Easy - Slightly different cancel timing on air hit, be warned. Link

- This combo does not work on normal hit.

Link 1.23
CH 2D > 236S Anywhere 74 Everyone [2] Easy - A tricky confirm, usually used after 2K as a last-ditch trap.

- CH 2D allows for a full 236S combo whereas on normal hit it is an OTG combo

Link 1.23
c.S > f.S > 5HH > 5K > j.H > 236S WB corner 202 Everyone [3] Medium -Near or in the corner, 5HH causes wall bounce, giving you a strong, meterless wall break opportunity. Link 1.23
5D > 88RRC > dl j.H > c.S > jc > j.S > j.H > WS > 236S > WB Corner 135 Everyone [3] Medium - When paired with 2K lows and 2D, this is something you'll want to get down. (example)

- Incredibly good when paired with Items. (example) - Doesn't splat at full wall health

1.23
c.S > 2H > 236S > RRC > c.S > jc > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > WS > 236S > WB Corner 203 Everyone [3] Medium -Carries midscreen

-Can splat early from 5K but only deals one damage less

5P/2P/6P/j.P Combos
Combo Position Damage Works on Difficulty Notes Recipe Video Ver
PC PS4/5
5P > 6P > 236P Anywhere 47 Everyone [1] Very Easy 1/2 5Ps most of the time, 3 with dash momentum Link 1.17
5P > 5P > 2P Anywhere 53 Everyone [1] Very Easy Up to 3 5Ps most of the time, 4 with dash momentum. Cutting it short at 5P is slightly better as 2P is +0 on hit. Link 1.17
CH 6P > 236P > 2H > 236P Anywhere 63 Everyone [1] Very Easy Gets you 2 free items with a little damage and great defensive positioning. Good poke positioning in corner. Link 1.17
5P > 6P > 66 RC > delay c.S > 6H > 236P/41236K Anywhere 87/99 Everyone [2] Easy Easier confirm than above and works from most distances, 5Px2 or 5P 2P work too for less dmg. Link 1.17
2P > FRC > f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 67 Everyone [2] Easy Can be useful for a bit of extra damage and defensive spacing. Connects from pretty long range. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay c.S > j.S > j.H > 236P Anywhere 86 Everyone [1] Easy Better damage that grants fullscreen defensive position. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay c.S > j.D > airdash j.D Anywhere 74 Everyone [2] Easy Creates a safejump situation easily. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay 2S > 5H > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Corner 91 Everyone [2] Easy Easy combo than above that sets up items in corner. In some cases, the trajectory of the item may be unfavorable. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay 5Kx2 > 6H > 214K [4] or [6] Corner 87 Everyone [2] Easy ecent damage with Scarecrow 50/50. Can also go for item at a pretty favorable trajectory. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay c.S > j.Px5 Corner 87 Everyone [2] Easy Meme combo that makes people laugh. :) In all seriousness, this is quite good for creating wallbreak pressure, leads into basically any mixup you'd like, and can be used easily with j.236P to create a situation where you're plus on block (or get a free combo). To take advantage of Love more effectively, you may need to decrease the amount of j.5Ps. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay 5K, 5K > j.H > j.D > j.236P Corner 96 Everyone [2] Easy Good for applying pressure with Love. They don't get hit by it if they jump, but you have fantastic options to cover this (such as j.H or j.D) as you're still actionable after using Love. Link 1.17
j.P > c.S > 2S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 111 Everyone [2] Easy Decent confirm for j.P if you ever get it on a grounded opponent. Sometimes doing the j.P early can net you a CH c.S. Link 1.17
AA j.P, j.P > j.H Anywhere 57 Everyone [2] Easy Air-to-air confirm with a fast jumping normal. Could be useful in matchups where the opponent is easily out-ranged in the air. Wallbreaks from midscreen if you use meter, but it's probably not worth it. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay c.S > 5H > 214P/K/S Anywhere 71 Everyone [2] Easy Useful when trying to find gaps in someone's offense + pretty good scarecrow oki. You can use 236P instead for good item oki as well. Link 1.17
AA j.P, j.P > j.D > j.236P Corner 59 Everyone [2] Easy Corner meaty Love setup from j.P. Link 1.17
5P > 5P > 66FRC > c.S > f.S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 104 Everyone [3] Medium Go to route for fullscreen knockdown + item. Link 1.17
5P > 5P > 66FRC > c.S > 5H > 236S [6] Anywhere 93 Everyone [3] Medium gh dmg MMM oki route. Not + enough for item but lets you safejump or dash to carry further. Link 1.17
5P > 6P > 66RRC > c.S > 2S > 236S > 236P Anywhere 89 Everyone [3] Medium Item oki rc route. Can be done from 5Px2/5P 2P but for that route below is more dmg. Link 1.17
5Px2 > 66FRC > c.S > 2D > 236P Anywhere 75 Everyone [3] Medium Go to route for close knockdown. c.S can be replaced with 2K (5K on standing) for confirms from further but for that route above is better. Link 1.17
5P > 6P > 66FRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > c.S > 2S > 5H > 6H Corner 167 Everyone [3] Medium Corner RC combo Link 1.17
5Px3 > 66FRC > c.S > 5HH > 236S [6] > 6H Corner 140 Everyone [3] Medium 5P confirm with decent damage. Link 1.17
5P > 2P > 66RRC > delay j.S > j.H >c.S > 6H > 236S [6] > 6H corner 138 Everyone [3] Medium Max range 5P combo. Link 1.17
5Px2 > 88RRC > dash c.S > j.S > j.H > dash 5K > 6H > 214K Midscreen 94 Everyone [3] Medium Great for setting up Scarecrow oki from midscreen from your fastest option. 1.17
2P > 66PRC > c.S > 2S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 104 Everyone [3] Medium From decently long range, you can still connect this. Great for getting some accidental CH c.S setups if you're late on the timing. It is hard to reversal this due to how fast the option comes out, and you can choose to Snip them instead of c.S. 1.17
2P > 66FRC > 2K > 2D > 236P Anywhere 58 Everyone [3] Medium Really low damage, but it converts one of your fastest low options into a hard knockdown for some great oki. Link 1.17
AA 5P, 5Px2 > 6P > 236P Anywhere 66 Everyone [3] Medium Awkward to time, and the # of 5Ps need to be adjusted based on how the opponent was hit. Useful for buying time when being pressured, as you can delay them by a good bit depending on momentum. Link 1.17
AA 6P > 214S > PRC > c.S > j.D > airdash Anywhere 96 Everyone [3] Medium A decent option to go for off of AA 6P, but it may not work at some heights. Creates a safejump situation. Decent for baiting Burst or reversals with. 1.17
AA 6P > 214S > PRC > c.S > j.D > airdash Anywhere Everyone [3] Medium A decent option to go for off of AA 6P, but it may not work at some heights. Creates a safejump situation. Decent for baiting Burst or reversals with. 1.17
AA j.P, j.P > j.H > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 2S > 5H > 6H Corner 157 Everyone [3] Medium Corner wallbreak from j.P. Link 1.17


5P > 5P > 88RRC > jump delay j.H > c.S > j.S > j.H > c.S >5H > 6H Corner 141 Everyone [4] Hard Harder confirm for slightly better dmg. you can add 2S before 5H for no extra damage (because proration makes no sense). Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay c.S > j.S > delay j.H > c.S > 6H > 236S [6] > walk [4] 6H Corner 172/165 Everyone [4] Hard Anti air 5P starter into meterless wallbreak. May be useful quickly on reaction after seeing someone mess up their forward jump out of corner, or for someone expecting a grab and they jump in place to avoid it. 6H will whiff after the wallsplat if you don't walk back for just the right amount of time. Depending on certain factors, the MMM may wallbreak before the 6H. Link 1.17
AA 5P > delay 5K > 6H > whiff 66RRC > dash j.H > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K Anywhere 177 Everyone [4] Hard Midscreen wallbreak using meter. Link 1.17

5K/2K/j.K/j.2K Combos
Combo Position Damage Works on Difficulty Notes Recipe Video Ver
PC PS4/5
5K > 2D > 236P Anywhere 57 Everyone [1] Very Easy Good confirm for a free item when throwing this move out in neutral. Can whiff if you hit the 5K from max distance. Link 1.17
5K > 2D > 236S [3] Anywhere 89 Everyone [1] Very Easy Can be used well to surprise the opponent by forcing them into a fast recovery. Can substitute 5K with c.S for more damage with the same properties, but less range on the initial hit. c.S is a very good option after this combo to catch mashers, but isn't safe against invincible reversals. Link 1.17
AA 5K > 6P > 41236K > 214P/K/S Anywhere 83 Everyone [1] Very Easy Great for setting up Scarecrow oki. Link 1.17
AA 5K > 6H > 236P Anywhere 77 Everyone [1] Very Easy Basic Anti Air 5K confirm. 6H can whiff if 5K hits the opponent too low in the air. Can link two 5K's if close enough. 2K(1) can also start. Link 1.17
AA 5K > j.K > j.2K Anywhere 69 Everyone [2] Easy Sets up perfect Thrust opportunities, and midscreen sets up into wallbreak with meter. Can whiff the j.2K by performing it early to mix up the timing of Thrust, or to trick the opponent into thinking you whiffed. Be warned that this setup is particularly weak against reversals and 6P. Link 1.17
AA 5K > 6P > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > f.S > 5H > 41236K Corner 175 Everyone [2] Easy Meterless wallbreak anti air combo with great range. Link 1.17
AA 5K > hold 5D > 5P > 6P > 236P Corner 103 Everyone [2] Easy Good in corner wakeup 50/50 situations if the opponent jumps due to your grab potential + free item. This combo can be used anywhere if you dash after the 5D, but it's not very useful when compared to other options. Link 1.17
AA 5K, 5Kx3 > 6H > 66RRC > dash 5K > 5Kx2 > 6H Corner 186 Everyone [2] Easy Great for creating frustrated responses from people. Not great for keeping friends. Link 1.17
AA 2K > 5K > 6H > 214P/K/S Anywhere 75 Everyone [2] Easy Most effective when closer to walls to get 50/50s, but can still be used to bait out DPs beyond midscreen if you hold back. This setup may give charged Scarecrow an actual use, especially with meter for baiting out punishes and stealing turns. Link 1.17
AA 2K > c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H Corner 176 Everyone [2] Easy Grants meterless wallbreak with good damage from a safe move. 1.17
AA 5K > 6P > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Anywhere 123 Everyone [3] Medium More bang for your buck. Great wall carry with great item oki and safejump potential. Link 1.17
AA 5K , 5K > 6H > whiff 214K > PRC > delay c.S > 6H > 41236K Anywhere 157 Everyone but Mil/Ram [3] Medium Wall carry potential. PRC 214K as soon as the camera moves. Delay c.S until opponent passes overhead. 5K instead of c.S for easier combo. *(Delay 41236K slightly or microwalk after PRC if using 5K and far from the wall). If you don't reach the wall, you can go for Scarecrow oki afterwards. Link 1.17
AA 5K > hold 5D > 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 41236K Corner 202 Everyone [3] Medium Meterless wallbreak to cover the same situation as the above combo. Link 1.17
AA 5K, 5K > j.H > airdash [3] j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 41236K Anywhere 195 Everyone [3] Medium Go to midscreen meterless wallbreak off of AA 5K. If you're close enough for it, you can go for a 6H at the end for 200 damage instead. To connect this, you may need to dash a little before the 6H. Link 1.17
2K(X) > 2D > 66RRC > dash c.S > 2S > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Anywhere 92/102/112 (73/81) Everyone [3] Medium The damage varies depending on spacing and how many hits you get, and it's not great damage, but you do get some decent wall carry and oki for 1 meter. 1.17
AA 2K > 5K > 6H > whiff 214K > PRC > delay c.S > 2S > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Anywhere 128 Everyone [3] Medium Pretty useful conversion if you want a lot of wall carry. 1.17
AA 2K > c.S > 2S > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 2S > 5H > delay 6H Corner 167 Everyone [3] Medium Not a terribly difficult confirm from corner AA hit into meterless wallbreak. 1.17
AA 2K > c.S > j.H > j.D > 236S [3] > c.s Corner 126 Everyone [3] Medium Great AA tool for keeping wall pressure with safejumps. 1.17
AA 2K > 2K > 5K > j.K > j.2K > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Corner 85 Everyone [4] Hard Meme combo that gives good wallbreak pressure from a pretty safe move. 1.17
AA 5K > 5K > 5K > j.H > j.K > dj.K > j.2K > j.236P Corner 124 Everyone [4] Hard Looks pretty cool and doesn't do much damage, but it sets up great wallbreak pressure with a nice meaty Love. 1.17
AA 5K > 6H > whiff 214K > PRC > delay 5K > j.S > j.H > c.S > 6H > 41236K > 6H Midscreen 214 Everyone [4] Hard Move after PRC to reposition if needed. PRC 214K as soon as the camera moves. Delay 5K until opponent passes overhead. 5K instead of c.S for easier combo. Link 1.17
AA 2K > 5K > j.H > airdash [3] > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 41236K Midscreen 178 Everyone [5] Very Hard Flashy but tricky combo 1.17
AA 2K > whiff 214K > PRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > c.S > j.H > j.H > dash c.S > 5H > 6H Corner 190 Everyone [5] Very Hard Hard confirm using meter, but pretty worth it if you suspect jump-ins from the opponent and you're in the corner. 1.17

Combo Position Damage Works on Difficulty Notes Recipe Video Ver
PC PS4/5
c.S > f.S > 5Hx2 > 236P Anywhere 135 Everyone [1] Very Easy Go to route for fullscreen knockdown + item. Link 1.17
f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 65 Everyone [1] Very Easy Go to f.S confirm. Careful on spacing as it will whiff if too far. Link 1.17
f.S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 105 Everyone [1] Very Easy Use if within 5H range. Link 1.17
CH AA f.S > 41236K Anywhere 68 Everyone [1] Very Easy Rarely will you ever need this, but if you do, this is the optimal meterless damage. 1.17
c.S > 2H > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Anywhere 107 Everyone [2] Easy MMM item oki route. Link 1.17
c.S > f.S > 5HH > 5K > 6H > whiff 66RRC > dash 5K > 6H > 214S Corner 215 Everyone [2] Easy Easy corner wallbreak combo at the cost of a bar when you can't confirm to 5H immediately. You can PRC instead omitting walk forward. Link 1.17
c.S > 5HH > 632146H Corner 229 Everyone [2] Easy Good for burning meter for damage quickly. Useful in situations where you need to do good damage, but can't afford to let your opponent's Burst meter go up by much Link 1.17
f.S > 2H > 236S [3] > 2H > 236P Anywhere 112 Everyone [2] Easy Sometimes this can be the only decent route in certain situations where you're going for c.S > 2H > 236S, but you get a f.S instead; it happens occasionally. Only works at somewhat close ranges. 1.17
CH c.S > 5H > 41236K [4] > H Anywhere 145,160,170 Everyone [2] Easy Great and easy confirm for lots of dmg. Great for making people blow their Burst. Provides great oki with Scarecrow, or can be used to get some items out. Link 1.17
CH f.S > (5H) > 41236K [4] > H Anywhere 108,124,135 (127,140,150) Everyone [2] Easy 5H can land with dash momentum, otherwise just start with f.S > 41236K Link 1.17
c.S > 2S > 5H > 66FRC > f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 138 Everyone [3] Medium Sets up item + very good Thrust positioning from most screen placements. Good defensive setup when you're in the corner, and great offensive setup when you have the enemy in the corner. The opponent is barely in reach for a mixup if choosing to not go for the free item. Provides amazing wallbreak pressure. Link 1.17
c.S > j.K > j.2K > FRC > j.H > f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 142 Everyone [3] Medium Provides great, reactable spacing for getting an item or two, but does cost a meter. Alternatively, you can 66FRC instead for more damage after landing. 1.17
c.S > f.S > 5Hx2 > 2S > 236S Corner 159 Everyone [3] Medium Alternate route that's much easier to perform than the above combo, but does less dmg. Link 1.17
c.S > f.S > 5HH > 5K > 6H > whiff 66RRC > 6H > 41236K > 6H Corner 227 Everyone [3] Medium Pretty easy to perform for how much dmg this does. Link 1.17
c.S > 5HH > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > c.S > 5H > 6H Corner 224 Everyone [3] Medium Meterless wallbreak with great damage, and easy to pull off. No need to dash to get the c.S off, just walk forwards a little before pressing. Link 1.17
c.S > 5HH > dash c.S > 6H > 632146H Corner 241 Everyone [3] Medium Really good and pretty easy damage using Super. Link 1.17
f.S > 2H > 66FRC > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 2S > 236S [6] > 6H Anywhere 179 Everyone [3] Medium Does good damage for 1 meter considering the distance 1.17
CH c.S > j.S > j.H > c.S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 169 Everyone [3] Medium Extended meterless damage from CH. Especially useful vs opponents who can't low profile your j.H. 1.17
CH c.S > 6H > 66RRC > delay c.S > j.S > delay j.H > 5K > 5D > 6H Anywhere 214 Everyone [3] Medium Good damage combo using meter that isn't too hard to pull off. Link 1.17
CH AA c.S > j.S > c.S > 2S > 236S [3]~1 > 236P Anywhere 142 Everyone [3] Medium Meterless CH AA combo with decent damage and wall carry. 1.17
CH AA c.S > c.S > 6H > 214S > PRC > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > dash c.S > 6H > 214S Midscreen Everyone [3] Medium Good damage combo using 1 meter 1.17
CH AA f.S > 214S > PRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > dash 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H Midscreen Everyone [3] Medium Pretty good damage for not being a difficult combo. Can carry to wall a bit further away than midscreen. 1.17
AA 2S > 5H > 66FRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 41236K Midscreen 215 Everyone [3] Medium Pretty high reward combo, great for when you read the opponent on their overhead options. 1.17
CH AA 2S > dash c.S > 6H > 236P Corner 114 Everyone [3] Medium Sets up for some crazy wall combos with great damage, or you can take some oki. 1.17
c.S > 2H > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 236S [3]~1 Anywhere 143 Everyone [4] Hard High dmg MMM oki route. Doesn't let you go for item+throw/strike oki unless you end in the corner but still throw item and meaty with 2P, f.S or 2H. This combo doesn't work if you're in the corner, but works everywhere else. Link 1.17
c.S > 2S > 66FRC > c.S > 2S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 160 Everyone [4] Hard Gives a soft bounce on the wall. In the corner, you're just in range to fish for CH f.S, 2H, or 5H right after throwing item. This will create very interesting and powerful situations! You can do this string anywhere, but it's pointless without setups in mind. 1.17
c.S > f.S > 5Hx2 > dash c.S > 236S [3]~1 corner 163 Everyone [4] Hard MMM oki setup with wallbreak pressure in corner. The dash requires pretty tight timing, but the c.S can be performed while holding forward to make it easier. The damage got nerfed on this pretty significantly, but it is still useful. Link 1.17
AA c.S > j.S > airdash j.2K > FRC > j.H > 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 236P > 6H Midscreen 206 Everyone [4] Hard Stylish combo that gives item near the end of the combo. Getting a hammer can put the opponent in a unique corner situation if you don't finish off with the 6H and let them recover from the wallsplat. 1.17
CH f.S > 41236K [4] > Early Hit H > whiff 66RRC > c.S > hold 5D > 5K > j.2K > 6H Corner 215 Everyone [4] Hard Does great damage 1.17
CH AA c.S > c.S > hold 5D > 66PRC > c.S > hold 5D > c.S > 5D > 6H Corner 235 Everyone [4] Hard Pretty high damage from 1 meter, but from a somewhat unlikely situation. 1.17
CH AA c.S > j.Px2 > j.H > 6H > 41236K Midscreen 148 Everyone [4] Hard 1.17
CH AA 2S > dash c.S > 2S > 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 2S > 5H > 6H Midscreen 202 Everyone [4] Hard Midscreen meterless wallbreak from a CH AA 2S. 1.17
CH AA 2S > dash c.S > 6H > 236P > 100TWeight > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H Corner 230 Everyone [4] Hard Meterless, easier, and more damaging version of the above combo that requires you to dash a bit further. 1.17
c.S > 5Hx2 > j.H > j.H > c.S > 6H > 236P > 6H Corner 220 Any but AN, GI, KY, LE and RA [5] Very Hard You will know you hit this right if you throw item before they hit the wall. If they didn't you can j.D to somewhat salvage the route. Alternatively you can do this but end in 214S instead of 236P 6H. Link 1.17
c.S > 2S > 5HH > 66RRC > delay j.S > j.H > dash 5K > 5D > 6H Midscreen 201 Everyone [5] Very Hard This combo looks super sick, and it confirms from one of Faust's most basic strings. Link 1.17
f.S > 66RRC > dash j.S > j.H > dash 5K > 6H > 214K Midscreen 115 Everyone [5] Very Hard Midscreen into Scarecrow 50/50 from f.S. 1.17
CH c.S > 2H > 41236K > 66RRC > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > c.S > 2S > 236P > 6H Midscreen 213 Everyone [5] Very Hard Midscreen wallbreak using meter on c.S counter hit. Link 1.17
CH c.S > 6H > 88RRC > c.S > hold 5D > 5K > 632146H Corner 239 Everyone [5] Very Hard Double meter high damage combo. Link 1.17
CH c.S > hold 5D > 66PRC > c.S > hold 5D > c.S > 5D > 66RRC > dash c.S > j.K > j.D > hold 5D Midscreen 227 Everyone [5] Very Hard Pretty sweet looking combo that does great damage, but requires 2 bars. 1.17
CH c.S > 5H > 41236K [4] > Hole in One! H > 66RRC > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K Midscreen 228, 237 Everyone [5] Very Hard ood damage in exchange for a meter. 1.17
CH f.S > 41236K [4] > Hole in One! H > whiff 66RRC > dash c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H Midscreen 222 Everyone [5] Very Hard f.S CH wallbreak confirm using 1 meter. Can be used on reaction to getting the Hole in One! 1.17
CH f.S > 41236K [4] > Early Hit H > whiff 66RRC > dash c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 41236K Midscreen 219 Everyone [5] Very Hard Same as above, but can be used on reaction to getting the Early Hit. 1.17
CH f.S > 41236K[4] > Hole in One! H > 44RRC > 214K [6] > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 6H Midscreen 234 Everyone [5] Very Hard Pretty crazy looking combo that's equally as crazy to pull off with big reward. 1.17
CH AA c.S > delay j.S > j.H > dash 5K > 6H > 41236K Midscreen 168 Everyone [5] Very Hard Good damage for no meter, but very hard to pull off. 1.17
CH AA 2S > dash c.S > 6H > 236P > 66BRC > c.S > 6H > delay 236S [9] > 4 > Bomb Explosion > c.S > 6H Corner 246 Everyone [5] Very Hard Really cool combo that does a lot of damage. The trick is to hit the Bomb with your 6H, and then avoid hitting it with your 236S. 1.17
CH AA 2S > dash c.S > 6H > 236P > 66BRC > c.S > jc > 100TWeight > j.H > c.S > 2S > 5H Corner 226 Everyone [5] Very Hard Pretty hard combo that uses the 100TWeight as a followup. 1.17

PC PS4/5
5Hx2 > 236P Anywhere 92 Everyone [1] Very Easy Since 5H is a great poke move at mid range, and the extension of this move has lots of utility packed into it, this confirm is very convenient for setting up item pressure. Link 1.17
CH 5H > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 123 Everyone [2] Easy More damage, easy as 1,2,3. Link 1.17
5H > 66FRC > c.S > f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 125 Everyone [2] Easy Worse damage, spacing is a bit better. Link 1.17
5H > 66FRC > c.S > 2S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 154 Everyone [2] Easy Better damage, spacing less advantageous. Link 1.17
5HH > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > 5H > 6H Corner 215 Everyone [2] Easy Pretty easy corner combo that does good damage. Link 1.17
CH 5H > 5P > 2P Anywhere 82 Everyone [2] Easy Gatlings pretty nicely into 6H. Can throw a lot of people off. Link 1.17
CH 5H > 41236K [4] > H Anywhere 124,141,154 Everyone [2] Easy Can OS by inputting 5HH and delay 41236K to confirm the CH Link 1.17
CH 2H > 6P > 236P Anywhere 71 Everyone [2] Easy The timing on the 6P is a little difficult, but not too crazy. Useful for getting people off of you after landing a stray hit. Link 1.17
5HH > dash c.S > c.S > 2S > 236S [6] > 6H Corner 204 Everyone [3] Medium Link 1.17
5H > 66FRC > c.S > 2S > 5HH > 236S [3] > 236P Corner 166 Everyone [3] Medium Has potential to be a pretty powerful string in the corner. Sets up huge wallbreak pressure, with item + more than enough time to set up for meaties. Link 1.17
5HH > delay RRC > dash c.S > j.S > j.H > dash c.S > 2S > 236P > 6H Corner 196 Everyone [3] Medium Can be used as a side switch when you're in the corner to wallbreak. 1.17
5HH > delay j.H > j.H > j.H > j.H > 6H Corner 216 Everyone [3] Medium 1.17
AA 6H > 214K > PRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 6H Midscreen 211 Everyone [3] Medium Good damage for 1 meter and not much effort for a wallbreak. Doesn't seem to break the wall consistently unless some hits are delayed in a particular way. 1.17
AA 6H > 214K > PRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > dash c.S > 6H > 214K Midscreen 160 Everyone [3] Medium Decent damage with Scarecrow 50/50 in exchange for 1 meter. 1.17
AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K Corner 80 Everyone [3] Medium Only works from certain distances. Needs to be adjusted based on what item you get. Can be done from anywhere, but is much more potent in the corner. 1.17
AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 236S [6] > 6H Corner 191 Everyone [3] Medium Banana/Donut version of the AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K string. 1.17
AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 6H Corner 193 Everyone [3] Medium Afro version of the AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K string, also works with Meteor. Will apply and keep the Afro after wallbreak. 1.17
AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K > j.S > Hammer > j.H > 5K > 6H > 41236K > 6H Corner 214 Everyone [3] Medium Hammer version of the AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K string. 1.17

5HH > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > dash c.S > 6H > 236P > 6H Corner 224 Everyone [4] Hard Does great damage for no meter. 1.17
AA 5H > 214S > PRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > j.S > j.H > 6H Midscreen 207 Everyone [4] Hard Midscreen 5H AA wallbreak starter. Doesn't even look like it should work, but it does. Only ever useful if you're trying to poke with 5H and the opponent jumps into it. 1.17
AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H > 214S > Bomb > Scarecrow Hit > 5K Corner 212 Everyone [4] Hard Bomb version of the AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K string. 1.17

No wallbreak found yet, but this puts you midscreen with mini faust pressure, an extra item, and great spacing for 2H or 6H afterwards. Depending on your spacing in the corner, you can do AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K > 6H to item farm up to 3 times due to Mini Faust pressure; with the opponent in the corner, this can create some very crazy situations for them to enjoy dealing with. 1.17
AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K > 6H > delay 236S [3]~1 > c.S > 2S > delay 236S [3] > Trumpet Hit [3] > 6H Corner 207 Everyone [4] Hard Trumpet version of the AA 6H > 236P > dash 5K string. Unique wallbreak combo using Trumpet hit's peculiar knock back properties. 1.17
CH 5H > 5HH > dash c.S > j.H > j.H > 2S > 5H > 6H Corner 227 Everyone [4] Hard Great meterless damage from CH starter. Timing for the second 5H is a bit tricky. 1.17

CH 5D > dash c.S > f.S > 2H > 236P Anywhere 91 Everyone [3] Medium Depending on spacing, the c.S may require a quick dash right before it or you will get a f.S instead. 1.17
CH 5D > dash c.S > 2S > 5HH > 236P Anywhere 106 Everyone [3] Medium Will always require the dash before the c.S using this route, but it does more damage. 1.17
CH AA 5D > 5K > 6H > 214K > PRC > c.S > j.S > j.H > 5K > 6H Midscreen 161 Everyone [3] Medium Midscreen wallbreak combo from the relatively rare situation of getting a counterhit anti-air from an uncharged 5D. 1.17

5[D]8 > j.S > j.H > jc > j.S > j.H > j.H > jc > j.D Anywhere 169 Everyone [4] Hard Easier, better damage for when you want to go for burning Afro oki after a dust combo. Super powerful - if the opponent does pretty much anything except for block after landing, you can just about win the round for free. If they do block, you get to mix them up. 6H is a fantastic option afterward to capitalize on this. 1.17
5[D]8 > j.K > j.Px2 > jc > j.K > j.P > j.P > j.K > j.D Anywhere 130 Everyone [5] Very Hard Optimally disrespectful. Good (typically unexpected) oki with Afro applied to the opponent. Link 1.17
