4 AA 4A > 2B(2) > sjc > j.A > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B Any 4629 [2] Easy Max height 4A anti-air. The first hit of 2B will whiff at said height, decreasing the final damage.
5 5AAA > 5BB(B) > 214B Any 5681 (6267) [1] Very Easy Basic 5A starter combo. Still works at max range if Raging Lion is skipped. Easy to extend with assists.

16 AA 2B > 5B > sjc > j.AA > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B Any 5865 (5232) [2] Easy Optimized version of the previous anti-air combo with more damage, meter gain, and corner carry. Does less damage if only the second hit of 2B connected.

The A Zio needs to hit the opponent by having them fall onto it but this needs to hit as late as possible, requiring a slight delay to avoid whiffing. Damage increases if each 2B hit twice, though both hits aren't needed to finish the combo.
19 2C > [236C] > dash 5A > 5BBB > 214B Any 6294 [2] Easy 1 bar combo off a max range sweep.
20 2C > [236C] > dash 5A > 2B > 5A > 5B > 5A > sjc > j.AA > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B Any 7041 [3] Intermediate 1 bar combo off a point-blank range sweep. EX Zio needs to be slightly delayed to connect into 5A.

If not done at point-blank range, EX Zio will need to be slightly delayed to connect into 2B. Dash forward and allow the opponent to fall as close to the ground as possible before using 2B. This will make Cross Slash cross-under, allowing 2B to hit after the super's recovery.
21B RB or CC 2C > [236C] > dash 2B > 214B+C > 2B > (5A) > 5BBB > 214B Mid-screen 9207 (9261) [4] Hard Modified version of the previous combo to work during Resonance Blaze or a Cross Combo. Combo timer is tight, so drop 5A if a partial EX Zio charge is needed. Must partially charge if not done at point-blank range.
22A 2C > [236C] > dash 2B > 214B+C > 2B > 5A > 5B > 5AA(2)A > 214B+C Mid-screen 10571 [3] Intermediate 5 bar combo off a close range sweep. Modified to optimize the damage off a Cross Slash ender.

Cannot charge EX Zio at all, thus this combo only works at point-blank range. Combo timer is tight, so drop 5A if a partial EX Zio charge is needed. Must partially charge if not done at point-blank range. Last 2B can lead directly into an unblockable Big Gamble reset.
23 RB 2C > [236C] > dash 2B > 214B+C > 2B > (5A) > 5BBB > 214C~A/B/C > 214B+C > (2B) Mid-screen 11639 (11684) [4] Hard 6 bar combo off a point-blank range sweep.

26 [(j)236C] > ((j)236C x 0 to 2) > (j)236B+C Any 5390 - 6459 [2] Easy A series of full-screen EX Zios ending with Ziodyne. Must either fire the air Zio as close to the ground as possible or charge the first one in mid-air. Can cut straight to Ziodyne after any of the Zios connect.

28 CH AA A+D > 5A > 2B > 5A > 5B > 5A > sjc > j.AA > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B Any 4913 [2] Easy Counter hit Big Gamble starter that only works if the opponent was hit at about super jump height.
29 CH AA A+D > 214B+C > 2B > 5AA(2) > 5BBB > 214B Any 6331 [3] Intermediate Counter hit Big Gamble starter that only works if the opponent was hit at about super jump height. Must get Cross Slash to cross-under in order to continue the combo.
20 214B+C > 2B > 5A > 5B > 5A > sjc > j.AA > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B Any 8614 [2] Easy Cross-up Cross Slash done against jumping opponents. Rarely occurs but can result in huge damage if you're prepared.
31 B+C > 5A > 2B > 5A > 5B > 5A > sjc > j.A > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B Any 5164 [2] Easy Optimized meterless mid-screen throw combo.

Combo Theory[edit]

Narukami's combo theory in BBTAG is fairly simple as his "main goal" is to get his opponent into the corner, which is easily achievable by confirming nearly any grounded hit into his infamous "waterworld slide" (B Swift Strike; 214B). The corner carry on this special move alone is insane and supplementing it via any assist attack that "juggles" or "pushes forward" (which is at least a third of the game's assist attacks since almost every character in the game has an assist attack that achieves at least one or both) can make it very possible for him to carry an opponent to the corner, even when Narukami himself is backed into a corner! (Ex: https://twitter.com/Reioumu/status/995433000509825024)

Narukami's j.C, formerly his Raging Lion special move, also has fantastic corner carry with the final distance being determined by the height Narukami used it at. The higher he and his opponent are before using j.C, the further they will travel. Raging Lion is also special cancelable which means we can combo it into the aforementioned Swift Strike special, resulting in a corner position from nearly every air combo!

So essentially, the basic "structure" of his ground assist combos usually look like:

xx 214B > [Call Assist] > 5A > 2B > sjc > j.A > j.B > djc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 214B


However, despite Narukami's combos being pretty "easy" to comprehend, one "nuance" that is important to know is that while B Swift Strike can combo from any of his normals, at a certain range, such as starting a combo at the very tip of Narukami's 5A (which is his main spacing tool), and continuing into say, 5AAA, the attack will not connect, thus dropping the combo. Two adjustments that can be made are:


1. Using an assist to combo after the fourth attack of his Neutral A Smart Combo (5AAAA). In most cases the combo will usually look like:

5AAAA > [Call Assist] > Corner Carry Stuff

(Ex: https://twitter.com/Reioumu/status/995434805872480262)


2. Using the Extra Skill version (or in common Fighting Game nomenclature, 'EX') of Swift Strike (214C) at the cost of one bar of meter to guarantee it will connect due to 214C's speed. Not a bad investment if you're not stingy with your meter, looking to burn meter, too lazy to judge for yourself whether or not the spacing is close enough for 214B to hit, etc. Plus, something to consider is that damage dealt by Extra Skills/EX Attacks do not convert to recoverable life, so there's actually some decent reward to pursuing this option in addition to "saving" your route from dropping due to autopiloting Narukami's 214B BnB from a range it won't connect.

(I didn't write the former and while I agree with it completely, one thing that should be noted is that 5AAA, P4U2 Yu 2C Izanagi stab, guarantees 214B 100% of the time even at max range. You basically only have to be careful of doing 214B after a normal that isn't 5AAA.)

Added 5/20/18: While the above may be correct, there are exceptions (Ex: https://clips.twitch.tv/PatientAnnoyingShingleM4xHeh). What we can learn from this is that air normals added in the beginning of a combo have the potential to push an opponent out of range for 214B to drop.


Converting off of stray air hits

Not all the time will your normals land on a grounded opponent for you to confirm into a ground combo, there will be times when your opponent will somehow be in the air when you land a hit. Now the question is, "How will I be able convert this into a full combo?" In Narukami's case, more often than not, you will be confirming straight into 2B and if you are well versed in his combo theory at this point, you would have probably deduced that you will be going straight into the "air sequence" of the combo from there (j.A j.B djc j.A j.B j.C). However, do note that this is the one part of his combo theory where there is a bit more nuance involved, so nothing is really "guaranteed". Said nuances that could influence how the conversion plays out are what normal was used to hit your opponent, the spacing between you and your opponent, how high your opponent was when you hit/her, whether or not they were counter hit. Properly converting off of stray air hits not only requires you to properly react to them but also for you to be well versed in your character in general.

An example presented here:

https://twitter.com/Magoichii/status/1007125228286164993

(Notice how the Narukami player was able to properly convert into a full air combo despite the opponent unexpectedly jumping by inputting 2B right when landing from j.AA)


Rebeats

'Rebeats' (for lack of better term) was a feature that was introduced in P4U2. They allowed players to "chain back" into a normal that was already used earlier in a string. For Narukami for instance, the most common normal to perform this with was 5B (his 5A in BBTAG). In BBTAG, P4U characters are able to perform this like in their parent game, and just like in their parent game, it adds to the pressure and combo-ability of P4U characters in general. For Narukami's case, a route such as 5A > 2B > 5AAA is possible, allowing players who care about being optimal to squeeze out a bit more damage.

One thing to keep in mind is that it is not possible to rebeat into a follow up. For example, 5AA > 2B > 5AA is not possible, as the chain would stop at the rebeated 5A so plan accordingly when implementing this into your Narukami pressure and combos!


STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS
