Combos

General notes:

  • when in max mode. moves will have more pushback which can be a problem in certian combos.
  • cr.B to qcf+C will fail on Kensou, Mai, and Choi even if they are standing.
  • An extra cr.B can be added to jump-in combos if they're done starting from a cross-up.

meterless

(midscreen)

  • cr.Bx2-3,qcf K / qcb P

great confirm from a cr.B. qcb P does the most dmg. qcf K is used for stun.

  • cr.Bx2-3, dp D / qcf C

go-to low confirm. both dp D and qcf C lead to a KND and both deal the same dmg, both are interchangeable although dp D is more consistent than qcf C. it should be noted for qcf C, it only works on standing opponents.

  • cr.B, hcb,f P

low coversion into a command grab.

  • cr.A, cl.D, hcb K / qcf P

link from cr.A. good dmg, take some time to get used to.

  • (j.X), cr.Bx1-2, dp D / qcf K / qcb P / qcf C

can confirm even off a jump-in.

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C / cl.D, qcf P / hcf K / hcb,f P

(corner)

  • jp.cd (CH), air d.D, air d.D...

yet another infinite because this is KOF 97. definantly one of the most difficult infinites to pull off. This works best on a backturned opponent since the timming to do this is easier compared to doing it from the front.

with meter

(midscreen)

  • cr.Bx2-3, qcfx2 A

basic low confirm into super. in max mode this deals a ton of DMG.

  • cr.B, hcbx2 P

low confirm into grab super. doesn't do alot of dmg compared to the one above

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C / cl.D, qcfx2 A

Super confirm off a heavy button.

  • (j.X), cr.Bx1-2, qcfx2 A

super confirm if you wanna confirm off of cr.B

  • air d.D, qcfx2 A

difficult to do. you have to time the super as soon as benimaru lands. can also be done in the air
