Combo List

  • This list is meant for actual combos, not for frame traps, blockstrings, or mixups (if the combo itself allows to set them up afterwards, it is mention in the "Notes" field).
  • The list is focused on most practical examples, not every single option that exists.
  • All damage values are damage dealt to Sol unless the combo cannot work on him, in which case the character with the closest defense modifier is used.
  • The difficulty is ranked on a scale of 1 to 5 (Very Easy, Easy, Medium, Hard and Very Hard) based on various factors (cancel leniency, link timings, special techniques, range consistency, etc).
  • Axl Specific notation: TKB = jc 623H (see TK Bomber Loops) for more details.

Dust Combos

Combo Damage Works on: Difficulty Notes
5[D], j.P > j.D > jc > j.P > j.D > j.S > jc > j.SS 192 Medium 5K, 2K, and c.S gatling into Dust.

Jump-in Starters

Combo Position Damage Tension Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
j.K > j.Dc.S > 214H Anywhere 99 Medium Requires landing j.D late enough to connect c.S
j.S5P/2H Anywhere Easy Even if j.S doesn't hit late enough to combo into 5P or 2H into a guaranteed combo, these are useful jump-in starters to keep the opponent locked down so you can apply more pressure.
j.S5P > 6K > 214H Anywhere 96 Easy Hit j.S late in the jump in order for 5P to combo.
j.S2P > 6K > 214H Anywhere 89 Medium
j.S5K > 2D > 214H Anywhere 81 Easy
j.S2K > 2D > 214H Anywhere 79 Medium
j.Sc.S > f.S > 2H > 214H Anywhere 114 Easy Remove the c.S if too far, or remove c.S > f.S altogether to go straight into a low hit with 2H.
j.H5K > 6K > 214H Anywhere 101 Easy
j.Hc.S > f.S > 5H > 214H Anywhere 122 Easy
j.D5K > 2124H Anywhere 87 Easy
j.D5P > [4]6S(2) Near Corner Medium Remember to hold down-back to begin charging Rensen in the air; pressing j.D while holding back will execute Throw, as Throw is now Forward/Back + Dust. j.D > 5P > Rensen works midscreen but can't followup.
j.Dc.S > 214H Corner 94 Medium

TK Bomber Loops

Tiger Knee Axl Bomber or TKB in short is a technique used to execute an Axl Bomber at lowest possible height. The most practical usage for it is canceling from ground normals (5K and c.S) into TKBs for combos that deal more damage and/give advantageous positioning than other options. TK Bomber can link to another ground normal if you are in the range (notably 5K since it has quick startup and long range), so in the corner it can loop into itself for massive amounts of damage. TK Bomber can be executed with all sorts of input methods (6923H, 9623H, 69874123H, 6321473H, etc.) but the most important skill is having the correct timing which changes depending on the cancel normal (or no normal at all). If your timing is inconsistent, the combo drops can leave you in a really bad spot; doing the input too early usually puts out a j.H that leaves you hanging right next to the opponent while a too slow input will delay the Bomber too much which makes it either whiff or get blocked, allowing the opponent to punish your long recovery.

There are three major options for comboing into TKB:

  • 5K: The quick startup with great vertical range makes it the most useful relauncher. Cancel timing: quick and lenient.
  • c.S: Slower startup and worse horizontal range than 5K, but does more damage. Cancel timing: slow and quite lenient.
  • Raw: Rare option for cases where a single hit without cancels is possible (eg. the wallbreak hit at the end of a Bomber loop). Link timing: strict manual timing with no buffers (inputting H during pre-jump frames turns into 5H, 6H, or 2H).
