Notation

Blood Level and Blood Rage

Some combos are only possible with a certain amount of blood due to the decreased startup of HS normals at higher blood levels. These combos will be noted with (BL#) or (BR) at the beginning.

Blood Gain Note

All values listed are the spike amount of the Blood Gauge. All combos that feature both specials and S/HS normals will have an initial spike followed by a rapid drain before settling on a net gain. If a combo does not feature specials the value listed is the final net drain.

OTG

Short for "off the ground" or "on the ground." There is a window where you can hit your opponent at the beginning of a hard knockdown before they become invincible. Striking at this time would be hitting your opponent "off the ground" (OTG).

e.g. 2D, OTG 6H

Beginner Combo List

These routes are basic bread and butter combos for players looking to get started with Nagoriyuki. They prioritize simplicity over damage, tension gain, or corner carry so feel free to modify them. A full list of optimal routes can be found below this list once your understanding of Nago's combo theory and execution improves.

The combo becomes more finnicky if CH 2H hits the opponent high up, but is adjustable by delaying the first or second c.S as they fall from higher up.

Will add 40 to blood gained. *Inconsistent on Ky until 1 blood bar filled. Scales better with blood gauge than above combo due to extra 2H.

Combo Theory

Damage vs Blood Gain

Unlike other characters, Nago's "optimal" combos aren't just based on damage. They're also based on how much blood you're willing to spend (or, more often, how much you're trying to save). There's a lot of math that goes around how much each move adds or subtracts and the individual numbers are listed on the overview page, but for playing Nago you're better off having a rough idea of how much each route will add or subtract. To use some simple BnBs as an example.

Starter > 214H > 6H (OTG) > 236K builds almost one bar of blood.

Starter > 214H > 623H (1) > 236K > c.S/5K > 6H > 236K builds roughly 2 and 1/5th of a bar.

The former is clearly better if you're at 1 bar of blood. You can also stick to a simpler route at lvl 1 like 5K > 6H > 236K which builds almost no blood whatsoever since the 6H mitigates so much of the cost of 236K.

Another big matter when it comes to reducing blood is choosing your ender. You often get your best oki off of something like 6H > 236K but you'll have to gain all the blood from any specials spent in the combo before hand. If you end up spending too much blood or want to bring your blood down for later, f.SSS is your best meterless ender for bringing down the blood gauge. The final hit of the 3 hit S series brings down as much as an H normal but you get the bonus of 2 extra slash hits along the way. This ender gives more blood drain and corner carry (and is great for breaking the wall). For example, the second combo (Starter > 214H > 623H (1) > 236K > c.S/5K > 6H > 236K) builds slightly less than 2 blood bars if you replace the 6H > 236K with f.SSS. The downside is that f.SSS gives the worse oki, especially midscreen. If you're willing to spend meter (or have wallsplat) super is the best way to bring down the blood gauge mid-combo. Super gives you almost 2 bars worth of blood drain which can often be enough to save you from blood rage if you spent too much mid-combo. Having a general idea of your routes and enders is going to be crucial to managing blood bar. It'll often involve sacrificing offense or damage, but with good management you'll still find yourself out-damaging the majority of the cast while still having scary mixups and pressure.

Wall Splat Enders

All Wall Splat combos listed assume wall is at full health. Due to the changing integrity of the wall throughout the match, some of these combos may splat earlier than expected in real matches. When this happens, try to trigger the break with your most damaging HS normal that will reach (6H > 5H > 2H) if not ideally Wasureyuki (632146S).

If the wall splat is triggered with the final hit of f.SSS and your Blood Guage is less than 1 bar, 6H will not be fast enough to land. Opt for c.S or 5K in this case or if the tight 6H link is too difficult.

OTG 6H > 236K

A powerful combo ender for its extra damage and okizeme. The knockdown advantage on the soft knockdown is +10 which sets up a meaty c.S or 2K. Nagoriyuki can route into this ender after most hard knockdowns (2D, 214H, air throw).

Fukyo (236K) can be left out when the Blood Gauge is dangerously high at the cost of okizeme.
