Combo Theory[edit]

For Naoto, the majority of his non dash normal BnB confirms, the move Shift Sway (214A) is what ties everything together. i.e: Stuff>3C>214A>66>etc. Without it his damage/combo potentially drastically decreases, locking him out of what makes him truly problematic off clean and sometimes stray confirms. Any and all usual whiff j.2C confirms -do not work- on Arakune.

In the Corner, the 2C>5D>2D>6D Route is inconsistent on Bang, Platinum and Arakune unless the 2C is microdashed.

Combo List[edit]

Midscreen 5A/2A Confirms[edit]

Combo Damage Meter Gain Difficulty Notes
5A>5AA>5B>5C>3C>236BBB 2048 14 [1] Very Easy Basic 5A Starter with fair damage. Go to Basic BnB
5A>5AA>5B>5C>3C>214D 1673 12 [1] Very Easy Another basic 5A starter. Damage is lower than with Rekka ender, but the knockdown leads to safejump situations
5A>5AA>5B>5C>3C>214A>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>2C>5D>2D>214A>66>EnKaid>5B>2C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C 2957 21 [3] Medium Slightly more difficult BnB as it uses Sway Dash Cancel>C DP. All Around Standard BnB. 2.0 Confirm, great damage off 5A

Does not work on Arakune

Crouching Hit 5A>5AA>5C>5D>214A>66>EnRekka~B>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>5B>2C>sjc>j.C>j.C 3223 23 [2] Easy Solid Damage on crouch, Even better corner carry

Crouching Hit 5A>5AA>5C>214A>66>EnRekka~B>66>EnC DP~whiff j.2C>662C>5D>214A>66>EnRekka~B>66>EnD DP~j.2C

Meter Gain: 20
Notes: Solid crouch confirm, breaks 3k


Damage: 1536 (1687)
Meter Gain: 11 (12)

2A>5B>5C>3C>214A>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>2C>5D>2D>214A>66>EnKaid>5B>2C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 2700
Meter Gain: 19

Damage: (3044) 2745
Meter Gain: (21) 19
Notes: New 2.0 Route, Side switch confirm with great damage off 2A or 3k off 5A

5A>5AA>5C>5Ddc>EnC DP>5A>2C>5D>(2D)>214A>66>EnRekka~B>66>EnKaid>5B>2C>jc>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 3022
Meter Gain: 21

Damage: 2640
Meter Gain: 21
Notes: Works more consistently at half screen, only consistent on taller/wider hurtboxes at fullscreen. Simple 5A starter

Damage: 3262

Damage: 2845
Meter Gain: 20
Notes: Buffer the 214A along with the 2C. Makes it easier to dash rekka after

Corner 5A Confirms[edit]

5A>5AA>5C>3C>214D>663C>En214D>(66)2C>5D>2D>6D>214A>66>En214A~28A>665C>EnD DP~j.2C

Damage: 3047
Meter Gain: 21
Notes: One of the Standard Corner BnB's to learn. Somewhat tough because of the use of Microdashes. Solid Damage off 5A, very good Knockdown.

Need to microdash 2C on: Bang, Platinum, Arakune to get 5D>2D>6D to work consistently

5A>5AA>3C>214D>662C>5D>2D>214A>66>2C>5D>2D>6D>214A>66>EnSway~Pain>665C>EnD DP~j.2C

Damage: 3625
Meter Gain: 26
Notes: Side switch confirm that works almost everywhere on screen, if too far from the corner, substitute the EnRekka~B for EnRekka~C>Air Combo for roughly 100 damage less.

5B>5C>3C>214A>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>665B>EnRekka~C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 3029
Meter Gain: 23
Notes: Pretty Good 5B confirm into dash 5B. Tricky to do consistently however due to spacing, but still a very strong confirm with solid screen carry.

5B>5C>3C>214A>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>662C>EnSway~Pain>665C>EnRekka~C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 3570

Damage: 4417
Meter Gain: 31
Notes: Massive Damage off Dash 5B, the new standard as of CF 2.0 although the older route is still more than good, it's up to you.


Damage: 3535
Meter Gain: 28
Notes A Variation of the Above combo. Better if you want to put your opponent back into the corner. Less Damage but better carry, same Knockdown though.
*Tip: Delay the EnRekka just a bit. The slide on Air hit 5D should be the indicator when to EnRekka

665B>EnRekka~B>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>5B>2C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 3523

Damage: 3564
Meter Gain: 25
Notes: Works Everywhere, much like the other confirm like this one, requires a bit of spacing for full screen carry.

Damage: 3976 (4136)
Meter Gain: 28 (29)

Damage: 4379
Meter Gain: 30

Midscreen 5C Confirms[edit]


Damage: 2566
Meter Gain: 18
Notes: Its basic. It works, not the best by any means but you're not getting raw 5C often anyways

Crouching Hit 5C>5D>2D>214A>66>EnRekka~B>66>EnC DP>whiff j.2C>5B>2C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 4791
Meter Gain: 33
Notes: Much like the 5B version except at Max range you will never cross up. Instant corner carry from 3/4ths screen. Same route in the corner as well.

Notes: Works closer to midscreen, guaranteed corner.

Midscreen 6A Confirms[edit]


Damage: 2561

Damage: 3402
Meter Gain: 23
Notes: Good damage and knockdown. There are alternate routes that do slightly more but they are far more unstable than this one, dropping or being too inconsistent on a few characters, As of 2.0 this works on Rachel

Damage: 4491/4176
Meter Gain: 32/30
Notes: This shouldn't happen, but if it does, easy damage for something that shouldn't land outside of Overdrive or on Counter Hit


Damage: 5436/5023
Meter Gain: 38/35
Notes: Another thing that should not happen outside of OD or CH, insane damage though so take that as you will

Meterless j.[D] Starters[edit]

Damage: 4616
Meter Gain: 32
Notes:The Anti Anti-Air/General j.[D] Starter. The EnKaid followup is probably the hardest part of the confirm but simple enough with some practice. Huge damage off a Non-CH, Adjust accordingly for confirms a bit too far from midscreen


Damage: 4384
Meter Gain: 31
Notes: Damage and Side swap. Generally pushes to the corner with good knockdown

CH Drive Starters[edit]

Damage: 4935

Notes: This confirm is mainly used to punish slow recovering DP's like Naoto's, Hibiki's, Makoto's, Azrael's, Kagura's Flash Kick, as well as Terumi's Soutenjin Super if he isn't in OD as he can Mash EA after whiffing the 2nd hit. This Punish is the fullscreen variant with the Half screen variant actually hitting above 6k but is more spacing dependent.

CH 6D>214A>66>EnKaid>662C>En214A~8A>66>5C>EnRekka~B>66>EnKaid>5B>2C>jc>j.C>j.C>j.623D~j.2C

Damage: 4861
Meter Gain: 34
Notes: the 6D Punish that can be used anywhere on screen. If you're in the corner. Huge damage off any stray CH 6D, if you're too far away from the corner, settle for the Rekka~C confirm; usual less damage and decent knockdown. As of 2.0 it works on EVERYONE

Damage: 4806
Meter Gain: 34
Notes: Another route with 2nd Rekka. Leading to a fair bit amount of damage, and corner carry if done from midscreen as well as possible in the corner.

FC 6[D]>214A>66>66D>214A>66>EnRekka~B>66>EnKaid>(66)2C>5D>2D>6D>214A>66>EnSway~Pain>665C>EnD DP~j.2C

Damage: 5845
Meter Gain: 41
Notes: Big boy damage. Improbable Confirm with an absurd amount of damage. FC 6[D] makes everyone sad.

Corner FC 236BBB>665B>6B>662C>2D>5[D]>214A>66>EnKaid>662C>5D>214A~8A>665C>EnRekka~B>66>EnD DP~j.2C

25% Meter Confirms[edit]


Damage: 3251
Meter Gain: -25, +14
Notes: Its nifty, decent confirm if you want to spend your meter but it's not really advised here as you can save your Meter for Supers and RC's to keep your pressure safe or mixup

CH 5B/C>6D>Charge CT>5D>2[D]>214A>66>EnKaid>(66)2C>5D>2D>6D>214A>66>En214A~8A>665C>EnD DP~j.2C

Damage; 5B: 5241, 5C: 5671
Meter Gain: -25, +25, 5C: -25, +28
Notes: Make people sad. Really really sad. Pushing almost 6k off a CH and 25 meter this confirm is well worth using the 25 Meter. Only real downside is this is Corner only but the reward is definitely worth it, especially since you remain Meter Positive regardless, and if you have the meter to spend on super as well, you're going to see someone's Health Bar melt, even more so if you Spend the OD to do it.
