Overview
Overview

EX Order Sol loses a lot of his unique tools and becomes an amalgamation of early versions of Sol Badguy. He is a very close range oriented fighter who is capable of keeping himself stuck to the opponent thanks to his low jump arc and Rock-It special, though he tends to lose at longer ranges, having to rely on underwhelming fireballs and gimmicky movement options to get in. Once he lands a hit, he can go for simple knockdowns and Bandit Revolver loops to stay in, or spend some meter on a launcher into a dustloop, into a tech chase.

Pros Cons
  • Borrows normal Sol's well-rounded normals
  • Good rushdown and pressure
  • Fireballs can go fullscreen
  • Better reversal with an FRC point on it
  • Weaker okizeme
  • Needs to spend meter for grounded launches
  • Lacks air-knockdown tools
  • Worse mixup tools

10 Mid 4 4 6 0 -

Standard jab and occasional poke, overall a pretty niche tool in EX HOS' kit. Useful for frame traps, tick throws, etc.

  • Better than average startup. Can tag a lot of beefier moves during their startup or cooldown.
  • Clutch Anti-air, but lacks the vertical coverage of 5K/2H.
  • Strong burst bait tool due to its overall low recovery time.
  • Whiffs on crouching Millia, Faust, and May. Leads to whiff > throw setups.

Establishes offense. Gatling into it from 2P > 2K, if the opponent has been conditioned to block high in reaction to standing animations.

30 Mid 5 2 16 -4 -

EX HOS's main punish starter for meterless and non-counter hit combos. Versatile gatlings from all of EX HOS's lower level buttons, useful mid combo as a confirm/filler/stopping point.

  • Recovers quickly enough that 5K(1) > c.S lets you confirm a hit or a burst.
  • Leans forward during startup, letting Sol move past some hitboxes depending on spacing (e.g. Dead Angles)

Can lead to Dustloops, and tk.Bandit Revolvers. Mid-corner combo against airborne opponents, can be jump canceled into a j.D for a high damage Dustloop. In the corner, you'll usually start your loops with c.S > 6P.

40 Mid 11 2 26 -9 -

Slower, long ranged poke, punish, and combo tool that leads to big damage on counter hit. Difficult to contest.

  • Combos into Rock-It up close or from a long-range counter hit, giving a plus frame ender
  • Confirms into FB Fafnir or FB Gunflame to either give a high damage knockdown or launcher into dustloop
  • Can frame trap out of 6P's extended cancel window.

On CH against standing opponents, leads to Instant Air Dash > j.S > stuff > dustloop, 5H goes into IAD j.P or j.K against airborne opponents, or after a confirm of xx > 6P > 5H when the 6P is landed somewhat close. Just don't get predictable with airdash pressure.

25 Mid 10 3 8 +3 -

Decent range, fairly active, very disjointed, low recovery time, and +3 on block make this an excellent blockstring ender, neutral button, and baiting tool.

  • Strong low reaching poke due to hitbox/hurtbox ratio.
  • Links into P and K normals and c.S on late hits.
  • OS: 5P/2P/2K > 2S is a natural frame trap on block, will combo on hit. Also works if delayed from 5K.

Discourages button pushing when properly spaced. Timing 2S ambiguously on oki especially is very tricky to defend against and can give you information on the opponent's mindset.

36 Mid 8 6 26 -13 -

High reaching upwards swing which gives you a day and a half to confirm on counter hit. Sol's main relaunch tool.

  • Beats many moves and scores CH due to the strong hitbox, and the hitbox is improved from regular sol (less head vulnerability and reaches lower). Trades in EX HOS's favor most of the time. Burst safe if jump cancelled on CH.
  • Fast enough to combo off of level 1 buttons.
  • Special cancel window extends into its recovery frames.
  • Can be OS'd with 5P/2P to bait bursts mid combo.

Works as a slower but stronger Anti Air than 5K, and late frame trap tool. Can be a nightmarish meaty if they feel like rolling the dice. .
Gatling Options: 5D, 2D


  • Floats on CH (untechable for ~30F(just a placeholder for now))

28 Low 7 3 20 -6 4~23F Low Profile

Amazing: mid-ranged, low profile sweep which can go under 80% of moves in the game, even during pressure. Your best friend.

  • Can go under bursts, Stun Edges, Johnny ranged pokes, other sweeps, etc. Will even score counter hits against some jump-ins.
  • Special cancel window extends into its recovery frames.
  • Needs to use meter to start a dustloop, either with gunflame frc, fb gunflame, fb fafnir or bandit revolver rc

Doesn't combo into EX HOS' tyrant rave, so no burst safe kills with EX HOS off 2d

32 Mid 9 3 20 -9 1~19F Upper Body

Prime corner combo launcher and counter hit fishing button, 6P beats out many poke attempts and confirms from nearly anywhere on counterhit.

  • Mid level hitting gut punch which beats many standing buttons. Blows back on hit. Major frame trap button with many gatling options.
  • Can be cancelled at any point during its recovery.
  • Clutch Anti Air.

Vital in frame traps but loses to many lows and low profile moves, pay attention to your spacing and timing. Despite this, with the rewards, you should expect to be using this move a lot.


  • Knocks down face up, face down after wallbounce.
  • Frames 1-8 [1-4], Frames 14-21 [8-11] upper body invincibility.
  • Frames 9-13 [5-7] above the knees invincibility.
  • Wall bounces on hit (untechable for 30 frames).

40x2 Mid 13 5,1 30 -12 -

Occasional ranged button, Not particularly strong by itself.

  • Decent stun and damage, but not able to launch without meter
  • Cancel window lasts until the end of recovery for late frame traps.
  • Pushes EX HOS' hurtbox pretty far forward, CH state for the whole move.

6H will get counter hit very easily if used poorly. It is EX HOS' highest damage starter if you have meter for fb gunflame in the corner. Be very cautious about using this move.


  • Dizzy modifier x1.5.
  • In CH state for entire duration.

22 High/Air 6 6 14 - -

Mainly horizontal. Useful for covering air backdashes or air-to-air out of a backwards jump. Better defensively than offensively.

  • Mostly for filler in dustloops, especially when scaling is too high for j.S/H/D to connect.
  • Occasionally useful in airdash pressure. Be careful as it will whiff on some crouchers.
  • Can be used to make iad confirms off midscreen fb gunflame slightly easier, even if it scales your damage

Useful j.P or j.S. Works sparingly if intentionally whiffed mid-string into land > grab, or late after a j.P to catch them trying to hit buttons. Try not to whiff it.

24x2 High/Air 9 6,8 0 - -

0 Recovery frames. Weird hurtbox. Lingers for forever. Pseudo-God Normal.

  • The shrunken hurtbox can make this outright impossible to Anti-Air with some moves.
  • Links into any jumping normal on hit.
  • Hit meaty and high enough off the ground, EX HOS' can airdash immediately afterwards for an airdash mixup.

Very difficult to contest in any regular fashion. The recovery makes opponents tear out their hair. One of EX HOS' most used air options.


  • Untechable on air hit for 17F. If only the first hit counterhits, untechable for 60f

Godly DP with a massive hitbox. The greatest. Ever. No followup kick, but gains an frc point (!!)

Ground S: Lower to the ground version.

  • Leads to a full conversion if the first hit is RC'd, or if the 2nd part counter hits.
  • Tied for the slowest version of the move at 7F, but with some of the most invulnerability.
  • Has very very low untech, just like reload sol S VV
  • Note - all grounded versions: must be jump installed in order to airdash or double jump on RC.

Breaks through even the smallest gaps. Commands respect in order to be completely baited.


Air S: Easy air combo ender. Has a lot of untech, possible to link 5k in the corner after a short air combo

  • Also works as an air reversal, but is air blockable without FD, and is only strike invuln.
  • Completely cuts EX HOS' air momentum when you RC the first hit, leading to airdash mixups or continued strings on block.
    • This RC will make EX HOS fall straight down. You can TK this move and RC it immediately, and with some very tight timing, you can tag an opponent with a quick overhead before you hit the ground...
  • Can convert to longer combos if the first hit is RC'd.

Ground H: Massive DP version. Big Anti-Air callout, unrivaled in combined speed and vertical reach. Eats up the sky.

  • Slightly faster and more damage than the S version.
  • Similarly converts if the 1st hit is RC'd or the 2nd part counter hits.
  • Can be difficult to punish if done with running momentum: some characters lack the means to reach Sol without meter.

Air H: Situational air knockdown tool with slight more damage. Higher reaching aerial VV, but not as high as the grounded version.

  • Also air blockable without FD.
  • Similarly to j.SVV, cuts air momentum when RC'd on the first hit.

Grounded 24, 36 Mid 9 5(11)9 10 -2~+2 1~3F Strike
Aerial 22x4 Mid 6 4(6)10 12 after landing - -

Primary BnB and meter building tool, and catches players upbacking/fuzzy jumping without FD.

  • Minute startup invul can make it a psuedo-reversal.
  • Keeps opponents grounded, though throw punishable if blocked standing.
  • Use caution: the second hit is unsafe on hit if the opponent is (still) grounded.
  • Also used to get a knockdown after 3 reps of dustloop
  • Possible to loop bandit revolver in the corner against light/some middleweight characters, up to 3 reps. Builds a ton of meter and knocks down, but lower damage than other EX HOS combos

Combo filler for high meter gain, and tool for shooting across the stage. GGX Sol version of air BR

  • First hit has very low untech, making air BR often not combo to the 2nd part if the first hit connects
  • 2nd part has up to 5 hits with very low untech. Usually your highest damage air combo ender when you cannot get a knockdown

40 High/Air 9 after reaching wall - 3 after landing -4~-1 -

Silly overhead transport attack. Awful move, except when it's amazing.

  • Hits on 14f when cornered, but will push out a lot of the cast and go right over some of them crouching. Starts higher off the ground the further you do it from the corner.
  • Airborne on frame 1, gets you out of dodge when used properly.
  • Doesn't normally lead to anything on hit, but full conversion on midscreen counter hit.
  • Can be FRC'd right before it goes active to fake into a low, or right as it hits (if early enough) for unusual conversions.
  • 6P bait. Don't do it fullscreen or you're going to die.

A fantastic, fear inducing move. EX HOS gains the insane ability to cancel into this move!

  • Half screen low that comes out on Frame 10, can tag very unexpectedly.
  • Lower body invincible to go over low poke attempts.
  • Knocks down on hit for 70 damage, or converts to around 200 damage out of simple IAD confirms, without resources.
  • Floats higher on CH, leading to Dustloops and even higher damage.
  • Loses to standing pokes if improperly spaced, and will get reversal'd if used predictably.
  • Extends its hurtbox before going active. Use it at the right range to become truly terrifying.

Fully cash out to make sure they're dead.

  • Nod to Deadly Rave. Costs 100 tension.
  • Deals 40-50% of a character's life bar raw when at full health.
  • Restands and removes OTG on the second hit, so it works out of sweeps, corner throws, and launches.
  • Turns into a psuedo-instant kill with a distinct animation if the last hit will end the round. Otherwise ends with the last hit of Tyrant Rave Lvl 3.
  • Rarely used at higher level play due to the cost, but unburstable, and can be confirmed from fairly easily if a kill is guaranteed.
  • How to time this move: Wait until HOS rushes and hits them with the first uppercut after in the initial explosion.
    • Hit the buttons in time with the preceding hit: P, K, S, H, D (slight pause), K, S, 631246H.
    • The sequence can be dropped intentionally at certain points and linked into other normals, but this is purely for swag.

Additional Frame Data: 1st hit staggers opponent on hit (Max 125F). 10th hit blows back opponent and is fully untechable. 10th hit has chip damage x1.5. Untechable for 100F. 2nd hit onwards ignores OTG. Order Sol is in CH state during move. If you mess up the command sequence, Order Sol goes into a short dizzy animation (recovery 56F).

Combo List

This is not the Be All End All of HoS combos, this is just to give a overview of his combos, both easy and hard, most of the ones I would consider essential, and a few outliers and oddballs to get people thinking about combo theory. Its much more important to understand the combo theory of HoS with (Starter)->(Linker)->(Ender) and how each part enables different parts, than to learn these combos verbatim, but this will at least give you a place to start.

Chargeless combos (Lv1 and below)
Combo Position Meter Charge Damage Works on: Difficulty Notes
5K/2K > c.S/2S > 2D Anywhere 0 0 59 All Very Easy Scores knockdown for Charge, basic or GB crossup okizeme. Use when you don't have running momentum.
5K/2K > c.S > 2S > 2D Anywhere 0 0 75 All Easy Scores knockdown. Better GB crossup okizeme potential. Use when you do have running knockdown to space yourself for GB oki
5K > c.S > BHB lv1 (2 hits) > ACFRC, 5K > c.S > 2D Anywhere 25 0 97 All Easy 2 hit confirm from 5K for building charge. Easy version of the combo. Customizable depending on your comfort level with links post BHB, notably dropping the ACFRC for microdash and getting the KD meterless. If you don't have enough momentum to get 5K after the BHB, either dash in for it, or use 2S > 2D
CH 6K > CC, Fafnir Anywhere 25 0 94 All Very Easy Simple 6K CH combo. 6K CC gives you enough time to hit confirm block or CH, and fafnir is an easy link. Do 6K > 6H without meter. Needless to say, you can optimize this further, but this is a good starter.
CH f.S/2S > 6H Anywhere 0 0 88 All Very Easy Your main poke combo. Learn to hit confirm the CH, although doing it on normal hit isn't too bad to keep your opponent in check, just beware the counterplay.
2H > RC > 5K > c.S > 2S > 2D Anywhere 50 0 97 Any Very Easy Super easy non-CH route for 2H conversion, gets you KD, can't really complain.
CH 2H > dash j.H > j.D > dj.H > j.Dj.H > j.D > dj.H > j.D Corner 0 0 192 All Hard See Double Dustloop Notes
Air CH 5H > CC > dash j.H > j.D > dj.H > j.Dj.H > j.D > dj.H > j.D Corner 0 0 215 All Hard See Double Dustloop Notes
5D >> [9] > FD-> j.Dj.H > j.D > dj.H > j.D Anywhere 0 0 117 All Easy Impossible dust combo. Actually easier than the normal dust combo IMO.
5D >> [9] > j.H]9[ > dj.Hj.H > j.D > dj.H > j.D Anywhere 0 0 117 All Easy Secondary ID combo. Use if you find the above one too finnicky for lightweights. Some people say this is even easier than the above one, so ymmv.
Ending with 2D > BHB/RI Anywhere 0 0 78~ All Very Easy Easy combo to set up everything you need. AC the special to get charge, or don't to tech chase. Both ACRFC and RC give better route extensions off this too, so be creative.
CH 2D > 5K > c.S > 5HS > SJIAD j.K > j.S > SV Midscreen 0 0 148 All Medium Standard CH 2D float combo. Works on everyone unlike the non-CH version.
j.PxN > j.K > dj.K > j.S > SV Anywhere 0 0 80~ All Easy Basic air catch combo. Can AC the SV in relative safety against most chars.
Throw, dash j.H > j.D > dj.H > j.D Corner 0 0 100 All Easy Basic throw combo. If the opponent wallspats low or has a funky hurtbox, you can use c.S to pop them us first, then replace the first j.H with j.S. End in BRP for damage ender, or land then neutral jump 6 + j.H for a tech trap.
Throw, dash j.H > j.D > dj.H > j.Dc.S > SJ j.S > j.H > j.D Corner 0 0 121 All Medium c.S relaunch combo for throw. Gives up tech positioning, but tacks on a respectable amount of damage for a throw.
Throw, 6H Corner 0 0 81 All Easy HKD ender for throw. Up close the 6H is universal, further out it gets char specific.
Fafnir > 662S > 5H > SJIAD j.K > j.S > SV Anywhere 0 0 183 All Medium Dash 2S 5H is sometimes distance specific. Most of the time you should be able to convert it. Because Fafnir KDs, this combo works basically anytime you use fafnir.
CH Fafnir > dash j.H >j.D > dj.H > D > BRP Anywhere 0 0 192 All Medium Much easier to do than GB.
CH Fafnir > dash j.H > j.D > dj.H > j.Dj.H > j.D > dj.H > j.D Corner 25 0 238 All Hard See Double Dustloop Notes
GB > dash j.H > j.D > dj.H >j.D Anywhere 0 0 137 All Medium Dustloop off GB. To get a sense of timing of j.HS, your opponent's falling state should be head down feet up.
CH GB/Air CH 5H > delay dash c.S > 5H > SJj.S > j.H > j.D Midscreen 0 0 152-175 All Medium Timing sensitive on dashing c.S. CH 5H is much easier to do.

Combo Theory

Bandit Revolver Loops

Different from present +R Sol's BR, the second hit of Bandit Revolver doesn't plummet straight down for a hard knockdown. Similar to his GGX combo, you can now loop BRs without having to TK BR since EX HOS' is the Reload version.
To start the loop, you will have to launch your opponent higher than 2D float, which is usually 6P launch height or if you catch them in the air high enough.
6P > 5H is the shared starter so most Sol's combo theory is similar where you launch with the string and then a juggle combo.
Example of a (somewhat) universal BR Loop:
6P > (delay) 5H/2H > [236K > 5K]*3
Heavier characters, of course, will have less reps while lighter ones can do more with even being able to use c.S instead of 5K to do even more damage.
Do remember, more reps you do, the more likely that you won't a KD since the hitstun decay of second hit is very short at longer reps.

Dustloop

Because of EX HOS' jump height, doing 2 j.Ds from a single jump doesn't work like how normal Sol's does.
To work around this, doing a jump cancel and then a delayed j.D will give us 1 rep.
Launcher > [j.D > Jump Cancel > delayed j.D]*2
It is important to delay the second j.Ds of each rep to let yourself to be close to the ground as much as possible to be able to quickly rejump again for another rep.
As for the ender, BR would be the ideal ender but lighter characters won't be able to fall quick enough and will be able to tech out before it.
For heavier characters or Ky, you may have to use j.S > j.D after the jump cancel or 2H to relaunch them back to continue the reps.
