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. IMPORTANT: PATCH 1.32 CHANGED MANY OF HER COMBO ROUTES. YOU WILL NOW USE HER MAIN, NEW EX COMBO AND ADJUST IT FOR HOW MUCH METER YOU WANT TO SPEND.

Combos

General Notes

  • Any combo starting with cr.B, cr.B, b/f+A can also be started with cl.C(2), b/f+A
  • It's usually preferred to input b/f+A as just b+A to avoid overlap with b~f+A
  • Mashing punch during hcf+P will increase damage and should always be done

1 Meter: Ends with qcb,hcf+P (225 DMG)
2 Meter: Ends with qcb,hcf+AC (352 DMG)

BC, cl.D > 41236P (do not mash P)> 2363214P > 236236AC > 2141236CD 1010 4 Anywhere Possibly the easiest TOD to do in the game execution wise, especially if button hold is used to buffer the supers. It is important to not mash machine gun puncher as it will add enough scaling to make it not a TOD.
