> Cancel the previous move into the following move.
If preceded by a move in brackets, must cancel the start of the preceding move (AKA a 'Kara Cancel').
, Link the previous move into the following move.
(X) A move in brackets must whiff (not hit).
Can also mean the move must be Kara Canceled.
~ Cancel the previous special into the following special.
cl. Close to opponent.
f. Far from opponent.
j. Jumping move.
AA Anti-air. Hit the opponent while they're mid-air.
[X] Hold input briefly.
P & K P and K each denote "Any Punch (A or C)" and "Any Kick (B or D)" respectively.

X * N

Repeat 'X' input 'N' amount of times.
Multiple inputs will be bundled into "{}".

Starters

Keep in mind: The combos in the "Combos" section have been tested using the first starter in each category (the combos in Bold).
The other starters in each table should also work in each case, but may not.

Light Starters

Note: O. Shermie can string together a myriad of light attacks.

Combo Damage Notes
2B > f.B(1) 29 The most consistent light confirm. f.B negates pushback so it is vital for light confirms.
2B > 2A > f.B(1) 51 2A is surprisingly stubby, so it can sometimes whiff.
cl.A > 2A > cl.A > 2A > f.B(1) 94 Any string of light attacks that ends with f.B can function as a light confirm.

Heavy Starters

Combo Damage Notes
cl.C 70 The most practical heavy starter due to its speed.
cl.D 80 Slower than cl.C but the highest damage, single-hit heavy starter making it ideal for punishes.
2A/cl.A, 2C/cl.C 91 Light to heavy link. The added hit enables better confirms. Unreliable after a jump-in but very useful after a cross-up.
2A > cl.A, cl.C 111 Double light to heavy link. Must be absolutely point blank. Can works after a cross-up but is much less reliable.

Other Starters

Combo Damage Notes
CD 75 Combos reliably into 214C, which also combos into your 236236B/D/BD, which can go into 236236A/C/AC and/or climax. This works everywhere on screen, except when your opponent is near the corner. Take note, CD > 214C is also safe on block.

(Note: 'Other Starters' won't be referenced in the 'Combos' section.)

Heavy Starter > 6B > 214C 203 150 0.22 Anywhere If 6A cannot be confirmed, use 6B for a safer (but slightly less rewarding) confirm.
