Combo Theory

Gogeta is a combo god, having a lot of powerful starters, amazing corner carry, easy confirms and explosive damage. This combo theory will go through Gogeta's most common starters, his most useful combo tools and his combo enders.

Common Starters

  • 2L/j.M: Both of this normals are common Gogeta starters since they are part of his strong high/low 50/50s. Both are scaled starters, so the damage won't be stellar, but they can be optimised to get the most of them.
  • 5L: Gogeta's jab and one of his only two safe normals, easy to land it as a starter since Gogeta staggers rely on this move. Has plenty of combo routes and even some ToDs.
  • 2M: The favorite normal of all Gogeta players, there's only pain for your opponent if you hit them with it. Medium starter, has use in neutral, is part of his anti-reflect strings, Reflect > 2M is practically a guaranteed punish/turn taker at worst, you want and you will land this normal.

Combo Extensions

  • 214M/j.214M: Gogeta's DP doubles has his most common combo extender. Has Smash property, great corner carry, and combined with his BBKDBFZ Gogeta BigBangKamehameha.pngGuard:

    synergy.
  • j.2H: Formerly the worst Gogeta air normal and one of his worst tools, the love it recieved after some patches turned it into an incredibily strong tool. This is because now, j.2H gives Gogeta rejumps on demand, increasing his damage and corner carry.
  • 236H/j.236H: Useful for 5S and same side j.2S confirms. Big wallbounce on hit, high damage extender and allows Gogeta to get SKD even if Smash SKD has been already consumed.

Combo Enders

  • 236L~L~L: This is Gogeta's most common ender in midscreen. 0 oki on hit, but gives SKD.
  • j.2H: j.2H allows to end combos midscreen to get better oki than 236L~L~L.
  • j.236L/M~M~M: Gogeta's most common combo ender in corner. Good SKD, allows him to set oki and groundbounces to call an assist and combo into DR/j.DR.

Sparking

2M > 5H > 214S > SPARKING!, (run to other side of opponent so you're facing the wall) 2M > 5H > 5S > jc.HS2S > jc.HS2S > j.236MMM Corner 6526 ~2.13 All Easy Bread and butter sparking loop starter in the corner. Stronger when paired with assists after 236M bounce SKD, and can even lead to TODs in the right scenarios.
2M > 5H > 214S > SPARKING!, (run to other side of opponent so you're facing the wall) 2M > 5S > jc.HS2S > jc.HS2S > SD > j.LL > j.236LMM Corner 6565 ~2.90 All Easy Modified corner starter. Stronger as a solo SKD pressure, as pairing with assists after bounce yields high hit stun so it's hard to confirm off of.
2M > 5H > 214S > SPARKING!, (run to other side of opponent so you're facing the wall) 2M > 5H > 5S > JC > j.H > j.S > j.2S > IAD > j.H > j.S > j.2S > 236M > A1 > DR > A2 > 236S > 214L+M > Hold L+M Corner ~7392/~9174/TOD ~3.40/~0.40/~-1.60 All Medium First assist needs high horizontal hitstun, second needs to be a fast launch. Overall combo builds 3 bars, so as long as you start with 2 bars, this combo can kill at 100% health.
2M > 5H > 214S > SPARKING!, (run to other side of opponent so you're facing the wall) 2M > 5H > 5S > jc.5MHS > SD > j.5LL > jc.5LLL > 236H > Very slightly delay Vanish > DR ▷ 214L+M Corner 9053 -1.60 All Medium High damaging combo. If you want this to TOD, either spend 2 more bar for the finisher, or deal exactly 10000 damage in Limit Break.
2M5HS > 236H > SPARKING! > 5LLL > SD > jLLjcLLL > j236H > Vanish ▷ [DR] > 214L+M > Hold L+M Corner 9304 or TOD -6.80 All Very Easy Bardump Limit Break TOD
5H > 214S > SPARKING! > , (run to other side of opponent so you're facing the wall) > 5L > 5M > jc.LLL > jc.HS2S > SD > j.LLL > j.236LMM > A1 ▷ S > 214M > A2 > [DR] ▷ 236 S+H > Other supers. Midscreen TOD ~0.90 All Medium 0 bar, 1 meter positive Round start TOD, A1 needs average hitstun and can't launch them too high, A2 needs to be a tracking assist that keeps the character in place (Gotenks tien etc). Depending on what supers and assists you use you may need to spend an extra bar for a lvl 2, but it certainly works with Tien as A2.
2M > 5H > 236H > [Vanish] > j236H(3) ▷ 214L+M > Hold L+M Anywhere 8582 -7 All Easy High damage combo in Limit Break that kills with added sparking.

Notes

Assist Extensions

Combo Position Damage Meter Gain Works on: Difficulty Notes
... j.236XMM > Assist > DR > 214M > Super Corner ? ? All Easy Your go-to. The super you use depends on the DHC you want to call in afterwards.
... j.236XMM > Assist > 214S > Super Corner ? ? All Medium Harder than the above combo, but good if you started your combo with Dragon Rush.
... j.236XMM > Assist > 2S > j.5S > j.214M > Super Corner ? ? All Medium Max damage combo finisher. Some assists allow this even if j.236XMM doesn't ground bounce, which is when it shines.
... DR > Assist > 236S/214S > Super Corner ? ? All Easy Useful only if it's going to kill.

Notes

Gogeta gets most of his assist extensions at the end of his combos.
