5M > 2M > 5S(2) > 5H > delay SD > airdash j.M ▷ 5M > 5[S](2) > SD > j.ML > jc.MLLH > delay j.214L 4922 1.25 All Medium Alternate midscreen rejump for damage, go for this if you have assists or meter to end your combo with. j.LL[S](2) > j.214l ender is a bit simpler and does 3 more damage, but has worse corner carry.

... > Vanish ▷ dash delay 5LL > 5M > 2M > 5[S](2) > 236M 2500+ -1, :( All Easy Alternate vanish confirm for a knockdown that does more damage but is less stable.

Notes

After j.214L/M, can use assists or meters to extend into sliding knockdown. 236M and 236H are completely projectile and assist invulnerable. Basically he has a grab lariat that is super good at getting in. Still very punishable if you miss His 5H is very strong, and beats most options round start besides lows.

Corner

Combo Damage Meter Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
2M > 5M > jc.M > jc.M[S](2) > j.236M ▷ SD > j.ML > jc.MLL2H > delay 236L 5172 1.45 All Easy High damaging solo combo that leads to sliding knockdown. Remove a j.L for j.L/j.M starter or two j.Ls for j.LL/j.ML starter.

2M > SD > airdash j.MH ▷ 5LL > 5M > 2M > 5[S](2) > 5H > SD > j.M > jc.LLL2H > delay 236L 5034 (5M) 1.55 All Easy Corner rejump, worse damage but slightly better meter gain. For scaled, remove the 2M > 5[S](2) and do j.M > jc.M2H > delay 236L at the end instead.

Notes

Sparking

Combo Position Damage Meter Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
2H > Sparking! > [5M > 2M > IAD j.L4L ▷]*n > 5MMM Anywhere ? :( All Medium A16's old sparking loops that did very little damage, and is much worse than the one below.
Sparking! > [5M > 2M > 5SS > IAD j.M]*3 > 5H > 236M Near Corner 6567 3.3 All Medium If midscreen after 3 loops, you can only get sliding if you are close enough for his 236L (Pretty rare). Remove the 5H and do a 214M after the 236M. Some characters allow 4 loops, but the hitstun decay is so high that you can't end with sliding

Notes

Assist

Combo Position Damage Meter Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
... j.214L + Assist ▷ dash jump j.[DR] Anywhere 2400+ .4 All Easy Easy to connect off basically any assist
... j.214L + Assist ▷ [DR] > 236L Corner 2600+ .7 All Easy Connects off of assists that put them near the ground/ on the ground, and gives more meter than dash jump DR
... j.2H > 214S + Assist > 5LL > 5M > 2M > 5H > 5SS > 236L Corner 4000+ 1 All Easy Easy to connect, corner specific combo ender that does more damage. As hitstun increases you can remove the 5H first then the 5SS, but at that point just do DR > 236L. If you are doing a 2 assist combo, you can change the ender from a 236L to a 214L and use the previous assist extensions to up your damage even further.

Notes

I used a j.H into the first move given for all the damage numbers, and yamcha A assist. 16 is extremely good at using assists. His favorites are beams and assists that will hold the enemy near the ground. 214L is easier to execute, but if possible you should use the j.2H > 214S assist extension as it gives more meter and damage.

Miscellaneous

  • 5LLLLLLL > delay j.236M

Works everywhere on screen.

  • 2M > 5M > sjc.MLLH > SD ...

Best air string that works on literally everybody except KRL, who requires a tiny delay on j.M.
