Combos

General notes:

  • when in max mode. moves will have more pushback which can be a problem in certian combos.

meterless

(midscreen)

  • cr.Bx1-2, cr.A, qcb B

Works against all standing characters, but whiffs against small crouchers.

  • (cr.B,cl.B) / (cr.B,cr.A), dp B (cr.C), qcb B/C

good low confirm that deals solid dmg. requires you to be close to the opponent so dp B won't whiff. you can also link a cr.C after dp B for abit of extra dmg.

  • (cr.B,cl.B) / (cr.B,cr.A), dp B~qcb B~D, dash, cr.C, dp P

an even more damaging variation of the combo above utilizing snake canceling

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, dp C / hcf P

simple BnB combo into specials.

  • (j.X), cl.C, f.A, qcb B/C

Combo from a close heavy starter. Use qcb+B if they're standing and qcb+C if they're a small croucher.

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, dp K~qcb B/C

Combo into dp+K.

  • (j.C/D), cl.C, dp K~qcb B~D, dash, cl.C, dp C

combo that fully stuns the opponent. requires some timming to get this to work.

  • dp K~qcb B~D, (cr.A), dp K~qcb B~D...

yamazaki's inafmous infinite in KOF97. one of the more doable yet difficult infinites in the game (think of it as a harder terry infinite). while it does seem easy on paper, doing consistent snake canceling can take time, you also have to be very close to the opponent so dp K won't whiff. you can also add in a cr.A for an eaiser confirm for doing this.

with meter

(midscreen)

  • (cr.B,cl.B) / (cr.B,cr.A), qcfx2 P

Metered combo from lows.

  • (cr.B,cl.B) / (cr.B,cr.A), dp B~qcb B~D, dash, cr.C, qcfx2 P

slightly more difficult metered combo for abit of extra dmg.

  • (j.X), cl.C / cr.C, qcfx2 P / hcbx2 P

Simple metered combo from a heavy or jump-in confirm. qcfx2+P gives you corner carry and better oki, while hcbx2+P gives you more damage.

  • (j.X), cl.C, dp K~qcb B~D, dash, cl.C, qcfx2 P / hcbx2 P

more difficult metered combo. requires some timming to get this to work.
