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.

Be sure to check this article about H-Ryougi: https://drunkardshade.com/2015/10/17/melty-bits-h-ryougi-shiki/

22X refers to knife pickup, rather than throw.

Note: Ryougi can end almost any air combo with either Air Throw or j.236B, favoring positioning and damage respectively.

Note: For air combos, Ryougi's j.A, j.B, and j.6B have identical damage, but different hitboxes, different startups, and different changes to the opponent's momentum. You can interchange them in any air combo that uses j.B to see which one works better for you.

Rekka ender gives better oki than air throw ender.

A slightly more damaging version of the basic midscreen BnB. j.236B is used over Air Throw if damage is preferred over oki. On some characters, in order to connect with all three hits of the 6A auto follow ups, you may need to slightly delay it after the 2C. Otherwise, simply omit the third hit and jump cancel the second hit. If using all three hits of 5A6AA, you must delay the first j.B in order to connect an air throw at the end of the combo on most if not all characters.

The 623B loop works both midscreen and in the corner. However, 623B crosses through midscreen, and 2C may cross under midscreen depending on spacing and character. Builds a decent bit of meter, and is easier than the Knife Pickup Loop in addition to not being corner-specific. In most circumstances it is possible to do 2-3 reps of 2C > 623B.

An extension of the basic midscreen BnB using H-Ryougi's EX Aerial Knife Throw. Provides good oki and allows for knife pick-up in addition to the extra damage. Uses 100 circuit. Requires being close to the corner in order for the 2C to connect after the EX Aerial knife throw.

A metered combo that works anywhere on the screen. The timing of the jump cancel on the last hit of her EX rekka is odd, but not too difficult once you get used to it. As with most of her air combo enders, you can replace the air throw with j.236B if damage is preferred over oki or if they are too high to get air grabbed, however it only adds around ~100 or so more to the combo.

???
Meter Gained: ??? Meter Given (vs C-Moon): ???
A meterless corner combo that uses knife and keeps the opponent in the corner, in addition to providing good oki and knife pick-up. The rekka ender can be replaced with 623A for okizeme as well. This is Ryougi's best meterless corner combo in terms of both oki and damage, but the timings differ greatly from character to character, making it one of her hardest.

A meterless corner combo off of her ground overhead. Provides air throw oki, but doesn't put you right on top of the knife. Midscreen, you simply omit the 214A and jump cancel 5BB into the air combo. If you don't have the knife, you can simply go into 236A~236A~236A off of the overhead.

Meter Gained: ??? Meter Given (vs C-Moon): ???
Less damage than either of the above but universal on entire cast. Try to go into the 2A > 2C > 5C loop as soon as you build enough gravity for it to work since it deals way more damage than the 5B version. 2B can be used instead of 5B. Makes no real difference, use whatever is easier for you. 2A > 2C may be impossible or at least very difficult on some characters. However, 2A > 5C will always work so long as you have built up enough gravity.

Strategy

Work in Progress.

Half

Half-moon Ryougi lacks the unblockables of Crescent and Full Moon. However, her normals have better reach than Crescent's, while retaining the ability to Reverse Beat. Additionally, Half is the only moon capable of catching the knife in the air, allowing for an extremely tricky mixup and some additional options.

Neutral Spacing

Since Ryougi doesn't have great ground-to-air or air-to-ground tools, you should usually try to approach aerial opponents from the air, and grounded opponents from the ground. With good spacing, you can discourage jumps with her air-unblockable 5B. Her 5A 6AA series also serves as a decent anti-air due to hitbox and startup buffs.

Pressure

Use 2A and 421C as whiff cancels in blockstrings. 22A can also be used if you have the knife, but the knife is usually better saved for her guard crush string.

Pressure String Components

  • |2A| > 5B~B > 2B > 5C > 2C > 3C
Generic string. +3 on block.
  • 2B > 5A (whiff) > 6A
Frametrap
  • 5A > 6A > 4C > 22A
Overhead attempt, made safe by the knife. Does not work off of 5A 6AA; you must cancel the second hit in the series. Additionally if the 4C connects, 22A will confirm the combo.
  • 5A > 6A > 5B~B
Delay 5BB slightly to avoid Reverse Beat. Use this to condition the opponent to not expect the overhead after 5A 6A.
  • 22A > (2A)/(5B)/(2B)
22A is a ridiculous +9 on block; walk forward 2A will be airtight while dash 2A or raw 5B/2B will frametrap. The disadvantage is that you lose the knife, but there are ways around this...
  • (Corner) (Close Starter) > 3C > 22A , 66 > (throw)
In corner, if you don't do 5C or 2C (which pushes you out too far), a 22A knife throw will bounce back and land right on top of you. You get a free blockstring reset and then you can do...
  • (on top of knife) ... 3C > (22X pickup) , (2A)/(5B)/(2C)/(etc.)
Picking up the knife after a 3C will give you extra frame advantage, which you can use to do an airtight 2A or frametrap with a 2B or 5B.
  • (Corner) 22C , 66 > (throw)
There are a couple of advantages to using 22C over 22A. First, if you are not smack in the corner, the knife will hit multiple times, giving you huge frame advantage and time to do basically anything you want. Second, it comes out faster than 22A, which means you can do 2C 22C without suffering from 2C's pushback, meaning you can use this to close the distance mid-blockstring. You can use this as a safe way to reset distance in a pressure string if you don't want to risk getting poked out of a dash.

Okizeme

  • 22A JC7 (catch) , 66 ~
Knife catch mixup. Throw the knife, jump back, and immediately airdash forwards to catch the knife. Ryougi will then fall ambiguously on the left/right of the opponent. In the corner, you instead get a j.5C / 2A / 6A+D sandoori. Air knife catch has some recovery in Current Code, so cancel the catch into a whiffed jumping normal if you want to go low.

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.

Ryougi swings upwards, identical to her Shield Bunker. Launches on hit allowing for air follow-ups for more damage. Just like 5A6A the hitbox is good for anti-airing but still isn't recommended due to being a follow-up (meaning you have to input 5A6A first, which is roughly 25 frames before this move will become active.)

Long-range horizontal knife swipe; slow. Identical to Full Moon's 5C, but without the charged unblockable. Moves forward slightly, and gives a lot of pushback on block. At max range, opponents can crouch under it. Safe option after a ground throw, as it will connect if the opponent attempts to jump out. Extremely useful for keeping opponents on the ground since it hits from a very long distance at chest height while moving you forward.

Slow, long-range crouching low slash that also moves Ryougi forward. Gives an untechable knockdown and hits at a very large arc in front, behind, and a little bit above her. Great option after a ground throw, as it will hit exactly on wakeup. Very useful in blockstrings and staggering combos as it propels Ryougi forward, allowing her to catch any backdash cancels. Had its active frames nerfed from AA to CC, changing the timings on many of her corner combos.

Best air-to-ground attack. Large vertical knife swing that hits in a large arc from below to very high above her. The attack box extends very high outside of her hitbox, making this an excellent air tech punisher. By far her most damaging air normal, sitting at 900 damage. Not good for air footsies, as her horizontal reach is weaker. This is her only crossup attack, and by comparative standards it is much weaker than the rest of the cast. Hitbox received a slight nerf, but still serves its purpose.

Extremely close ranged overhead kick. Must be blocked high, and gives an untechable knockdown. On hit it can be cancelled into any special move, however it's recommended to combo into 22A knife throw into a midscreen/corner BnB, or 236A series if you don't have the knife available. Cannot jump cancel or continue reverse beat strings after this move. Start-up frames were nerfed from AA to CC, making it even slower than it already was.

Identical to the second part of Full Moon's j.B. Semi-quick knife slash tilted slightly upwards with slightly more range than j.B, with a smaller hitbox to boot. This is the safer option for aerial footsies, as the attacking animation extends significantly farther.

Ryougi lunges forward and slashes, starting your rekka chain. A version has faster startup and B version moves further. A version is usable as an above average poke but make sure you continue the rekka on hit or block as it won't leave you in a favorable position due it its frame disadvantage.

236X~236A/B/C 900 720 80% 6.3% -CH- HL 4 5 19 -6 -

Basic Rekka Follow-up, almost exclusively used as combo/blockstring filler. Will knock down aerial opponents. All versions are identical.

236X~214A/B/C 1200 864 80% 8.4% -CH- H 23 3 19 -7 -

Overhead Rekka Follow-up, goes right over most if not all low attacks. Never a bad thing to use during blockstrings as it creates a highlow mixup when used in tandem with the Low Kick follow-up to keep your opponent on their toes. Doesn't combo from starters, which means you get a free damage reset if you somehow hit both.

236A Ender 700 384 50% 4.9% - HL 4 4 20 -6 -

Basic Rekka ender, gives hard knockdown on hit and leaves you pretty safe on block, but your pressure more or less ends. On hit, you can link straight into 236C for more damage and an air combo. On aerial opponents, Ryougi will sometimes cross under and reverse inputs (making 236 into 214, etc.) so be sure to do 214A to get this in those situations. (e.g. 2C>236A~236A~214A)

236B Ender 1200 768 40% 8.4% - HL 8 6 25 -13 -

Launcher ender of Rekka. Pushes you back just enough to keep you safe but you're better off doing A Ender or the Low Kick to stay in. You can link a 2B on hit to convert into an air string for what is basically an F-Ryougi combo.

236C Ender 1500 960 100% 10.5% -EX- HL 16 10 16 -10 -

Another launcher that switches sides with the opponent. Do not use this in blockstrings if you don't have the knife for 22C as it is unsafe and very easy to punish. This ender encourages combo extensions with 100% proration, convert with 214C for some big damage numbers AND hard knockdown.

Low Kick 450 336 50% 3.1% EX L 10 / 8 3 22 -7 -

Input with either 236X~214D or as ~214A/B/C/D at the end of the Rekka. Useful for catching opponents trying predict the overhead and/or to end Rekka early since it cannot be followed up with if used after starters. The pushback keeps you safe on block and can be cancelled into 22C to keep a blockstring going.

Not a Rekka. Ryougi dashes in and does 6 slashes in rapid succession followed by B Ender. If any hit connects the rest of the move is guaranteed. Safe on block because of how far it pushes you out. Has some invul but don't think about using this as a reversal unless you're REALLY confident and/or don't value your life. On hit it's jump cancellable, leading into more damage.

[A] 1200 1056 55% 2.9% - L 37 4 30 -6 -

Ryougi dashes forward and cuts through the opponent. Has the least amount of startup and hits low, putting your opponent in hard knockdown allowing for oki. Charging it gives it the launch properties of B Version allowing for conversions. Good at punishing half-to-fullscreen zoning attempts thanks to its lower hurtbox. Because Ryougi will dash through the opponent on hit or block (given that she's close enough), this can be used as a decent pressure tool so long as you end up far enough away to not get punished.

[B] 1200 1056 55% 2.9% - H 44 4 30 -6 -

Longer startup than the A version, but travels slightly farther and always launches on hit regardless of charge. The most useful for combos and the infamous 623B loops, and also serves as a better pressure tool at close or far range due to its better frame advantage.

Seemingly to compensate for H-Moon's lack of charged unblockables, the move becomes an Overhead when fully charged. Enjoy watching your opponent never block this as they struggle to pick out which of these 6 identical moves hit high.

A 1000 912 85% 3.0% -EX- H 24 4 20 -6 -

Ryougi leaps forward and slices straight horizontally. Whiffs on crouching opponents, and on hit will knock your opponent fullscreen or wallslam in the corner. A good combo tool in the corner and great at catching jump outs. Not that safe on block and will probably make you eat a combo on whiff, but you can cancel this into j.22C on hit or whiff to make yourself considerably safer. Interestingly, there's a second hitbox early in the move that guarantees that this will connect mid-combo if your opponent is standing, and said hitbox can also be Shielded and clashed with allowing 214A to counter hit anybody unlucky enough to manage that.

B 1200 960 50% 3.6% -EX- H 26 3 24 -8 -

Ryougi leaps forward and slices diagonally downward. Won't whiff on crouching opponents, and hard knockdowns opponents on hit. Landing a counter hit with this move will bounce them up a bit, allowing for a conversion into an air combo. Even less safe than 214A so space this accurately and if it is blocked or whiffed, cancel into j.22C to make yourself safer.

EX 1400 960 50% -100.0% N, SP, EX, J HL 1+13 4 22 -5 -

Ryougi does 214A except the hitbox is enormous. Just like 214A, it will whiff on crouching opponents. For all intents and purposes this is just better than 214A due to its ridiculous size and faster startup, able to destroy any plans your opponent may have above the ground. Combos directly after 236C Ender of Rekka into an air combo for some more damage and/or hard knockdown. While safer than the meterless versions, it will still spell you a quick doom if you whiff this.

Ryougi does a standing pose and readies herself for an attack. Once triggered, she throws the opponent behind her. The counter only covers her head and upper body, making it the one used for high hitting attacks and aerials. It is not only triggerable by attacks that must be blocked high, it can counter mids but some mids hit too low for this counter to work so choose wisely. On successful counter you can convert into a standard air combo. If you're too far, walk forward a bit so 5BB can properly connect.

B 0 0 60% 0.0% (N), (SP), (EX), (J) - 4 12 12 - -

Ryougi does a crouching pose and readies herself for an attack. Once triggered, she throws the opponent just like the A version. This counter only covers her lower body, making it the one used for low attacks. Just like A version, this can counter mids but not all of them as some will just go right over it and you'll just be counter hit. Conversions off of a successful counter are exactly the same as A version.

C 1000 672 45% 0.0 - - 4 9 9 - -

Ryougi assumes the same pose as B version. This counter has the same hitboxes as the B version but has less active frames, meaning you have to be more strict with your timing. Upon successful counter, Ryougi throws her opponent into hard knockdown. Significantly less useful, as you must to spend meter with 623C to convert off of this (You can also use 236C if you're in the corner). This counter has less recovery than A and B which makes it another option for whiff cancelling during blockstrings. Opt for 421B instead to counter low attacks.

A 950 720 60% 6.6% - HL 13 1 21 +5 -

Ryougi throws her knife straight forward. Travels fullscreen and bounces off of the wall back to where Ryougi threw it. On stray hit, she can convert into a full combo and is one of the best combo extenders in H-Ryougi's arsenal. This also sees a healthy amount of use as a combo extender, usually after 3C to go into an air combo. On block, the frame advantage allows Ryougi to stay in and continue assaulting the opponent's block until their guard breaks. Abuse this move.

B 950 720 60% 6.6% - L 16 17 18 -3 -

Ryougi tosses her knife downwards. Hits low. The knife will sometimes get stuck in the ground instead of bouncing back toward where the knife was thrown depending on where you are on the screen. This doesn't see as much use because of the angle, inconsistent knife placings, frame disadvantage and lack of combo ability, but you can use it to abuse those who routinely block 22A high for whatever reason.

EX 500 * 4 (1501) 288 * 4 (863) 90% -100.0% - HLA 1+0 1 20 + -

Ryougi throws her knife straight forward with the might of Zeus. Hits four times. Just like 22A, this move will confirm you a combo on a stray hit and serves just as useful as a combo extender. On block, this move shines brighter than anything else H-Ryougi has, and can turn a stray hit into a full on blockstring that will leave the opponent with gradually diminishing returns. Comes out on frame 1, allowing you to use it as a pseudo-reversal against meaty attacks.

Knife Pickup 0 0 0% 0.0 - - 11 1 0 - -

Unlike other Ryougi Moons, H-Ryougi is able to pick up the knife simply be crouching ontop of it and can catch it while it's spinning in midair (not possible if she's attack, you must be in a neutral state). However, H-Ryougi does posses the ability to pick up the knife with 22X if cancelled into. This has drastically less startup and cancellable recovery frames compared to Crescent and Full, allowing her to stay in on block for as long as she needs to and turns her throwing knife into a borderline permanent resource.

Leaping forward, Ryougi throws her knife downward. Leaps right over low attacks. This move is good as an alternate to 22A during blockstrings as it fulfills the same purpose and it's jump cancellable, leading to a sandoori (high/low/throw mixup). It can be used as a combo starter just as well as 22A but has some trouble as a combo extender, though it is possible. Just like 22B, it will get stuck into the ground depending on where the knife is thrown so beware.

B 950 720 90% 6.6% - HL 25- 15 12 + -

Ryougi dashes forward, jumps past the opponent and throws the knife downward toward them. Ryougi will ALWAYS throw the knife in the direction she came from, meaning if your opponent is in the corner and cannot be crossed up Ryougi will just throw the knife away and you will eat a fat combo. Not something to just toss out in neutral, though you can get a normal combo if it lands. Sees use as a combo extender in specific combos.

EX 950 720 50% -100.0% - HL 10+1 15 29 + -

Ryougi leaps back and throws the knife downwards. This version has the fastest start up of the three. Unfortunately, the distance Ryougi leaps and the pushback it has can make it difficult to use midscreen but in the corner this move is almost better than the A version because of the amount of blockstun this move has. The best out of the three for combo extending.

Hitbox is huge enough to be used as an anti-air as well, and knocks opponents fullscreen/wallslams in the corner.

Ryougi flips in midair, slashing at the air infront of her. You can use these as an option to mix up your wake up to punish half-baked meaty attempts or people trying to punish your air tech with grounded normals. This version of the move has the most startup, making it kind of reactable if used improperly, however it is the safest version on block, which will allow you to convert into a blockstring if used close enough to the ground. It's worth noting that if you use any of these while your opponent is close to the corner you can convert into an air combo.

B 1100 720 50% 7.7% - HA 15 2 15 +1 -

Has faster start-up and will more likely be the one to rely on. It isn't as safe as A version but can still give you an advantage if it's blocked.

EX 1800 1152 75% -100.0% - HA 6+6 2 15 -4 Full 1-13

Actually a useful reversal. Full invul on start-up and retains the combo potential from previous versions but isn't safe on block. Don't get too comfortable using this as there are better things for H-Ryougi to spend meter on and your opponent will just punish you and/or prevent you from using this if you become too greedy.

Ryougi crouches down, locks on to the opponent with her Mystic Eyes (unblockable), then dashes forward with a series of slashes (blockable). This has non-invulnerable startup before the superflash and a few frames where the opponent can move or jump out before the Eyes activate, so it can easily be jumped out on reaction. Only invulnerable after the superflash, and is punishable on block.
