Combos

General notes:

meterless

(midscreen)

  • cr.B, cr.A, dp P
  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, dp C
  • (j.X), hcf C, jp.d.B / jp.CD / dp P / jp.qcb C / hcb B / qcb C

if you land athena's command grab, you have alot of options from it. jp.qcb C does the most dmg but requires some timming to get the max dmg out of it, while jp.CD and dp P are the enders you'll most likely resort to (hcb B and qcb C are just easy enders).

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, hcf C, anything listed above

(corner)

  • (against airbourne opponent) j.qcb A....

a very difficult infinite involving instand j.qcb A's.

with meter

(midscreen)

  • (j.A/C), qcfx2 P
  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, hcf C, b,hcb P

(corner)

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, hcf C, hcb B, b,hcb P

a combo that can only be done in maxmode. the hcb B must be done as soon as you've recovered from doing hcf C in order for it to work.
