Combos

Combo Notation Help
Disclaimer: Combos are written by various writers, so the actual notation used in pages can differ from the standard one.

For more information, see Glossary and Controls.

X > Y X input is cancelled into Y.
X > delay Y Must wait for a short period before cancelling X input into Y.
X, Y X input is linked into Y, meaning Y is done after X's recovery period.
X+Y Buttons X and Y must be input simultaneously.
X/Y Either the X or Y input can be used.
X~Y This notation has two meanings.
  1. Use attack X with Y follow-up input.
  2. Input X then within a few frames, input Y. Usually used for option selects.
X(w) X input must not hit the opponent (Whiff).
j.X X input is done in the air, implies a jump/jump cancel if the previous move was done from the ground.

Applies to all air chain sections:

  • Assume a forward jump cancel if no direction is given.
  • Air chains such as j.A > j.B > j.C can be shortened to j.ABC.
sj.X X input is done after a super jump. Notated as sj8.X and sj9.X for neutral and forward super jumps respectively.
dj.X X input is done after a double jump.
sdj.X X input is done after a double super jump.
tk.X Stands for Tiger Knee. X motion must be buffered before jumping, inputting the move as close to the ground as possible. (ex. tk.236A)
(X) X is optional. Typically the combo will be easier if omitted.
[X] Input X is held down. Also referred to as Blowback Edge (BE). Depending on the character, this can indicate that this button is held down and not released until indicated by the release notation.
]X[ Input X is released. Will only appear if a button is previously held down. This type of input is referred to as Negative Edge.
{X} Button X should only be held down briefly to get a partially charged version instead of the fully charged one.
X(N) Attack "X" should only hit N times.
(XYZ)xN XYZ string must be performed N times. Combos using this notation are usually referred to as loops.
(XYZ^) A pre-existing combo labelled XYZ is inserted here for shortening purposes.
CH The first attack must be a Counter Hit.
Air CH The first attack must be a Counter Hit on an airborne opponent.
66 Performs a ground forward dash.
j.66 Performs an aerial forward dash, used as a cancel for certain characters' air strings.
IAD/IABD Performs an Instant AirDash.
AT Performs an Air Throw. (j.6/4A+D)
IH Performs an Initiative Heat.
AD Performs an Arc Drive.
AAD Performs an Another Arc Drive.

Shin nin combo. The new aerial that you want to try to hit as much as possible. This version is possible off her optimal BnB, as well as her 6[C] hit confirm. However in order to hit this with the 5B > 5C > 6C > 2B > 2C starter, 2C must not be delayed after 2B (generally a problem for people who have been playing Warc for a while. If you do 2B delay 2C, instead do the following below:)

Meter Gained: -100.0 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 1.1
Use this after j.BC > sdj.BC. Also possible after Shin nin, but it's pretty tough.
Airborne opponent, 100% meter
  • j.B(1) > j.214A > j.214C
1803
Meter Gained: -92.0 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 3.5
Easier way to end Shin Nin with j.214C. A good trick to inputting this is inputting it as j.214A~5~C.

Corner Combos

236A Combos

These combos are very flashy and give you very high meter gain (usually at least 150%). Some of the variations can prove to be rather difficult due to some character's hitboxes and the fact that you want the first hit of 236A to whiff. Delay the followups after 236 for as long as possible, this will keep the opponent lower to the ground and is the only way to make some of these even possible. If you land a 2AA, j.AB or j.B starter into 5B etc. you can tack on an extra 236A on most characters with 5B/5C 5A 236A.

Corner OTG w/ Throw

When you finally land a throw with C-Warc in the corner, you set-up what is essentially a 3-way mixup game for the opponent. You have 3 starter options here.

Option 1: Wait

This option is for when you predict the opponent will tech. Since Warc's throw is ground techable, you can react to all teching with 2B (ideally you want to use 5B, although 2B is much easier due to its active frames). This scores you high damage + high meter gain and will certainly make your opponent reconsider next time you throw them.

Option 2: OTG the opponent

This relies on your opponent not teching but will give you extra meter and tack on a bit of extra damage to your throw. It also sets up another tech punish opportunity, however you cannot OTG the opponent a second time.

Use 2B > 5B > 2C > 5C > 5AA. On some characters you can OTG with 5B (making it easier to tech punish with 5B, since you don't have to switch stick position). For these characters use 5B > 2B > 2C 5C > 5AA instead.

Characters that can be struck with 5B OTG:

  • Arcueid
  • Red Arcueid
  • Kohaku
  • Kouma
  • Nanaya
  • Nero
  • Roa
Option 3: Airdash over the opponent

When you throw the opponent, they are actually turned around (their back will be facing you). When this situation occurs, a universal mechanic takes place where the opponent will actually be vulnerable to being crossed over in the corner while waking up.

This relies on the opponent not teching, however using this will strongly encourage teching to avoid the mixup giving you more chances to tech punish for high damage.

If your opponent begins to block this, you can set up all of Warc's mixups with ease. Some strong options here include:

IAD backwards j.CB/j.C land 2B/j.C land throw

Superjump forward, airdash back j.CB/j.C land 2B/j.C land throw

This is just for flash. You want to hit the 5B as low as possible and immediately cancel into 63214C, followed by 3C. 6[C] is not possible in this combo due to the system's wallbounce limit



Move Descriptions

Frame Data Help
Header Tooltip
Move Box Colors

Light gray = Collision Box (A move lacking one means it can go through the opponent's own collision box).
Green: Hurt Boxes.
Red: Hit(/Grab) Boxes.
Yellow: Clash Boxes (When an active hitbox strikes a clash box, the active hitbox stops being active. Multi-hit attacks can beat clash since they will still progress to the next hitbox.)
Magenta: Projectile-reflecting boxes OR Non-hit attack trigger boxes (usually).
Blue: Reflectable Projectile Boxes.

Damage Base damage done by this attack.

(X) denotes combined and scaled damage tested against standing V. Sion.

Red Damage Damage done to the recoverable red health bar by this attack. The values are inherently scaled and tested against standing V. Sion.

(X) denotes combined damage.

Proration The correction value set by this attack and the way it modifies the scaling during a string. See this page for more details.

X% (O) means X% Overrides the previous correction value in a combo if X is of a lower percentage.
X% (M) means the current correction value in a combo will be Multiplied by X%. This can also be referred to as relative proration.

Circuit Meter gained by this attack on hit.

(X%) denotes combined meter gain.
-X% denotes a meter cost.

Cancel Actions this move can be cancelled into.

SE = Self cancelable.
N = Normal cancelable.
SP = Special cancelable.
CH = Cancelable into the next part of the same attack (Chain in case of specials).
EX = EX cancelable.
J = Jump cancelable.
(X) = Cancelable only on hit.
-X- = Cancelable on whiff.

Guard The way this move must be blocked.

L = Can block crouching
H = Can block standing.
A = Can block in the air.
U = Unblockable.

Startup Amount of frames that must pass prior to reaching the active frames. Also referred to as "True Startup".
Active The amount of frames that this move will have a hitbox.

(x) denotes frame gaps where there are no hitboxes is present. Due to varied blockstuns, (x) frames are difficult to use to determine punish windows. Generally the larger the numbers, the more time you have to punish.
X denotes active frames with a duration separate from its origin move's frame data, such as projectile attacks. In this case, the total length of the move is startup+recovery only.

Recovery Frames that this move has after the active frames if not canceled. The character goes into one frame where they can block but not act afterwards, which is not counted here.
Advantage The difference in frames where you can act before your opponent when this move is blocked (assuming the move isn't canceled and the first active frame is blocked).

If the opponent uses a move with startup that is at least 2 frames less than this move's negative advantage, it will result in the opponent hitting that move.
±x~±y denotes a range of possible advantages.

Invul Lists any defensive properties this move has.

X y~z denotes X property happening between the y to z frames of the animations. If no frames are noted, it means the invincibility lasts through the entire move.

Invicibility:

Strike = Strike invincible.
Throw = Throw invincible.

Hurtbox-Based Properties:

Full = No hurtboxes are present.
High = Upper body lacks a hurtbox.
Low = Lower body lacks a hurtbox.

Miscellaneous Properties

Clash = Frames in which clash boxes are active.
Reflect = Frames in which projectile-reflecting boxes are active.
Super Armor = Frames in which the character can take hits without going into hit stun.

Warc steps in and thrusts her arm forward. Active on frame 5 minimum making it a great counter-poke, and can be delayed by holding C for up to 28f. The animation is deceiving as the move only reaches to her hand, however it reaches down enough to hit crouchers. Has little pushback but not much stun.

Warc gets low to the ground and does a very quick, large swipe with her hand. Has good blockstun and can be used as an anti-air thanks to it's large vertical hitbox. It also works as a long rang poke since it will tag crouchers unlike 5C. Really terrible on whiff, so don't whiff it!

Warc does two long forward swipes with her arms. The startup is extremely fast, the hitbox is very large so using this as an aerial poke and an anti-air are common. However, there is a hitbox on the swipes so don't be TOO liberal with it. Don't whiff this, as you will be stuck in recovery until landing.

In a hook shape, Warc does a large upwards swipe. On hit, the opponent is launched vertically in to the air. Has short horizontal reach but starts up fast, so using it as an anti-air for opponents above you is a decent use. Don't whiff this like j.B. Jumping in with this and reverse beating to j.B creates a strong high/low.

Warc does a side kick while moving forward. Due to the forward movement, it is extremely useful for combos and pressure. Decent for jumpouts but not useful as an anti-air. Long recovery on whiff so try not to whiff it. Whiff cancel this to continue pressure.

Warc spins while clawing the opponent with both arms. Used to end air combos for knockdown (last hit needs to connect). Has one hit of super armor so you can use this to beat out shield counters.

Holding up after doing the move will remove knockdown properties and cause the attack to do less damage. Absolutely useless.

  • Warc swipes upwards and creates a wall of blood. Air unblockable. The A, B and EX versions each have their own varying uses.

A small blood wall that hits 2 times. Mainly used as anti-air since it has an excellent hitbox and startup but you can only follow up if the last hit is the only one that connects. If you are spaced correctly you can also use this to potentially catch mashers but don't try too often.

B 300*8 (1910) (742) 100% 3.0%*8 (24.0%) -EX- LH 29 18 21 -10 -

8 hit, large bloodwall. The startup as you can see is long but once the wall appears it will not disappear even if you are hit. This move is EX-cancellable after release so you can use this to cover a 63214C. The wall travels far forward and reaches high so it can also be used as an anti-jump out/mash. If you are going to use this, take advantage of its excellent coverage for 63214C and the air-unblockable property.

8 hit EX blood wall with Warc rising along the wall. Very invincible and has some clash frames while rising. Charge -> Uppercut -> Jump -> Shock wave (x 5) is how each hit can be organized. Only the "jump" portion of the move is air unblockable. This move has terrible recovery and does not reach behind her or reach directly above her, so only use this sparingly as it may spell the end of the round for you. Opponents can time a circuit spark and punish you for using this too (Don't EVER use this against H-Moon in heat). If you manage to get only the 5 hits of the wave to hit, you can follow up with a combo.

  • Warc teleports forward a certain distance depending on which button you pressed. Not terribly useful on the ground, but the aerial versions give you some extra movement.

A: Teleports a short distance forward. It is EX-Cancelable but the window is short.
B: Same as A version but lacks the EX-Cancel and moves farther forward.

EX 0, 1500 (1453) 0 45% (O) -100.0% - LH 3+4 8 11 -3 Full 5-18

Ground EX teleport. Warc teleports forward after startup, "grabbing" the opponent and holding them above her head. She will then throw them the opposite direction into the wall, allowing a follow-up combo should you be in range as the opponent cannot tech until they hit the ground. This is an important part to your corner tech-punish game, as you can catch forward techs into this move for large damage and to keep them in the corner. Can also be used to get out of sloppy pressure as it is invincible after startup and safe on block. If spaced correctly to where Warc appears in front of the opponent, you have advantage. Unsparkable, as it counts as a grab despite being an actual hit.

  • Called the "Ika Ring" by some, all of the rings will disappear after traveling a certain distance aside from j.214C. It is very important as a Warc player to use these moves properly.

Basic pressure finisher. Can be used as an anti air against characters with larger air moves like Riesbyfe or Kohaku. Has little proration so a follow-up counter hit combo will be strong. The large amount of active frames on this attack makes it an excellent meaty after j.214C.

Startup is slower than A, but in exchange it is EX cancelable. Can also be used to finish pressure. If air guarded 623C or 63214C will ensure a guardbreak into a followup. Keep mind of where you are on the screen if attempting this though, as 623C will give you no followup if your back is not close to the corner. This can also be used when driving the opponent into the corner to catch chicken blocks. Be wary of the startup though.

EX 500*10 (3349) (1953) -5%*10 -100.0% - LH 4+11 (4+31) 46 22 12 Full 1-9

Releases 2 large, multi-hitting rings. Shield-bunker bait but if they guard you have the advantage (+12). Using this at the end of 214B to continue pressure was used a lot, however, with the introduction of 63214C, seeing this move is rare. Using this for Guard Crush strings is possible though as it does a good amount of guard bar damage.

  • After a short startup, Warc teleports backwards. Invincibility startup and distance vary with button.

A: Fakeout. Warc teleports and appears in the same spot. The move has some invincibility so it can go through some things (although unreliably).
B: Same distance as 623A, but backwards. Start up is a little longer than A version.
C: Same distance as 623B, but backwards. Invlun starts up a little longer than 623B, but much longer than 421A.

THE BIG RED. Spiciness in your mouth. Warc raises her arm and throws out a huge, fast, 7-hit ring that costs 150% meter. Does not travel full-screen but damn near. The opponent will be flung into the wall and depending on how far from the corner you are they can tech at different intervals. It is air blockable but Warc recovers fast enough to get an easy guardbreak. This move has a crazy amount of uses: Guaranteeing a guard break, extending pressure, establishing pressure and a couple flashy combos. However, there is no invincibility, it can be dodged without proper cover and is shield-bunker bait. The pros for this move are great though and absolutely overcome the negatives with correct use.

  • Aerial version of Warc's teleport series.

A: Warc teleports forward in the air. Once completed, you retain all your aerial options; however, you cannot air backdash or do a special.
B: Exact same as A Version but travels farther.
C: An aerial backwards teleport. This is incredibly useful for retreating as it moves you far back and you can fall with a j.B.

  • Aerial rings. j.214A/B combined with j.B are excellent air moves, giving Warc a strong aerial arsenal.

A blood ring that travels at a 50-55 degree angle and maintains the trajectory until it hits/disappears. Can be EX-canceled until landing. If Warc does not EX cancel, she is in recovery until she lands and can be counter hit at anytime if the opponent passes under it, jumps over it or reads it and shields you. Keeping track of the opponents position when zoning with this is imperative to it's use.

B 1500 490 50% (O) 8.0% -EX- LHA 21 X (26) 21* -13 -

Same as A version but Warc stops in mid-air to throw it. You retain all remaining air-options after throwing this out, so make use of it to cover your aerial approach. You are defenseless while throwing this out though, so be wary. You may EX-cancel for a short period of time after using this move.

EX 2100 2058 50% (O) -100.0% - LHA 2+16 X (26) 6 6 (TK) Full 1-12

High speed EX ring that has a large amount of inertial push back. On ground hit it causes pop-up and knockdown on air hit, so ending an air combo with this is your best choice. It opens up lots of oki options due to the quick recovery and long knockdown. Can be used to fend off anti air efforts when your air movements have been exhausted, since it is one of the handful of moves that have mid air invincibility.

Fast startup but the hitbox is narrow (Warc's eyes to knees), so you can't use this to zone. If you are further than midscreen when you 623C, you can TK this to tack on some damage. You also retain your aerial options.

Moon Drop! What accidentally comes out if you have terrible execution. During the Super flash you cannot move, but you are completely invincible. When you can move, if you are not hit, grabbed or break a grab during the time that the moon is falling, the whole screen will be hit with an unblockable attack. Using this will give up your initiative as the recovery is ridiculously slow. Furthermore, if you do get past that and do not pressure the opponent, the opponent could dodge or back step it. You can use this every blue moon (no pun intended) though since the stages are very large.

Using this at point blank or while the opponent is above you causes an unblockable, untechable launching hit that makes the moon fall faster for a guaranteed hit, but less damage.
