Calculating Lifesteal

Ragna's Drive, Soul Eater, has a mechanic that increases lifesteal in long combos. Different lifesteal percentages are applied to Soul Eater hits depending on how many Soul Eater hits have already connected within the same combo. The formula is as follows:

  • 1st to 5th Soul Eater hit = 100% lifesteal
  • 6th Soul Eater hit = 110% lifesteal
  • 7th Soul Eater hit = 120% lifesteal
  • 8th Soul Eater hit = 130% lifesteal
  • 9th Soul Eater hit = 140% lifesteal
  • 10th Soul Eater hit = 150% lifesteal

The scaling remains at 150% for any Soul Eater hit beyond the 10th.

Attacks that have lifesteal are as follows (values in [] are during OD):

  • 5D(2): 100 [150] lifesteal
  • 2D: 100 [150] lifesteal
  • 6D: 100 [150] lifesteal
  • j.D: 100 [150] lifesteal
  • 5A+B (Crush Trigger): [200] lifesteal, only applies during OD
  • 214A~214D: 200 [300] lifesteal
  • 214B~214D: 100 [150] lifesteal
  • 623D: 50×2 [75×2] lifesteal
  • 623C/D~236C~214D: 50 [75] lifesteal
  • 236D: 100 [50×3] lifesteal
  • 214D: 100 [150] lifesteal
  • j.214C~214D: 200 [300] lifesteal
  • 632146D: 300 [200+100×4] lifesteal
  • 214214D: 500 [1000] lifesteal

All of these lifesteal values can also be found on each move's overview.

You can also use Sydoh's Ragna Lifesteal Calculator to easily calculate the lifesteal of any combo.

Introductory Combos

If you're just starting out with Ragna, we recommend that you not go any further until you've mastered these combos. These combos are basic but effective, and will give you a good base for your matches starting out. They work on every character in the game, and have similar routing to one another, so you should be able to practice just a few combo parts and you'll be able to do all of them. They should also give you a good idea of Ragna's combo structure, and how to hit confirm properly with him, so you can easily branch out to other more effective routes and implement them into your gameplay.

The Basics
Combo Position Damage Life Steal Heat Gain Notes Video
(2A) > 5B > 5C > 214A~214D Anywhere 1714 200 12 This is where your game starts. Works off pretty much any starter and gives good corner carry with a knockdown.
(2A) > 5B > 5C > 2D > 623D~236C~214D Anywhere 2043 250 14 Nets slightly more damage and a better midscreen knockdown than the above combo, but requires you to be slightly closer.
(2A) > 5B > (5C) > 6A > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 2906 500 20 Close-range midscreen combo. Nets more damage than the above combo but requires Ragna to be close to his opponent.
(aa) 5B > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 3571 500 25 An easy confirm for when you get a close-range airborne hit.
(2A) > 5B > 5C > 2D > 623D~236C~236C, 5B > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D Corner 2518 720 18 Basic corner combo that works from any starter and nearly any range.
5B > 5C > 2D > 236D~66, 2C > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D Corner 3559 720 25 An improved version of the above combo, but only works off of long starters (B, C, D buttons).
5B > (5C) > 6A > 6D > j.214D, 3C > 22C > 236D~66, 2C > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D Corner 3898 720 27 Close-range corner combo. If you're struggling to do 236D~66, 2C > 6A > hjc, you can instead not dash cancel and do 236D, 5B > 6A > hjc.
CH 5C > 6C > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 4154 500 29 Basic punish combo. Use this to punish opponent's reversals. Also functions as a crouch confirm.
CH 5C > 6C > 6D > j.214D, 3C > 22C > 236D~66, 2C > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D Corner 4514 720 32 Basic corner punish combo. The above combo also works in the corner, but this one will give you more reward.
6T > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 3077 500 22 Basic forward throw combo.
4T, 665B > 5C > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 3270 500 23 Midscreen back-throw combo.
6T/4T > 214D, 3C > 22C > 236D~66, 2C > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D Corner 3269 600 23 Corner throw combo. If you're struggling to do 236D~66, 2C > 6A > hjc, you can instead not dash cancel and do 236D, 5B > 6A > hjc.
j.T, 5C > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 3268 500 23 Midscreen air throw combo. You can do this in the corner, but you will most likely sideswap after the air throw and lose corner, so it's suggested you learn the corner combo below.
j.T > j.214D, 3C > 22C > 236D~66, 2C > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D Corner 3171 720 22 Corner air throw combo. Make sure to immediately cancel into air Blood Scythe so you keep the opponent in the corner.
5B > 5C > 214A~214D > RC, 665C > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > j.214C~214D Anywhere 4218 700 -30 50 Heat Rapid Cancel combo. This combo works from even a max range 5B hit, and gives good damage and corner carry. It's a valuable tool to make Ragna's footsies even scarier. If any other buttons are added before Hell's Fang, you must 5B > 6A after Gauntlet Hades, or the hjc > j.C will drop.

This beginner section does not go over any Overdrive combos, and that is because Ragna's Overdrive routing can be a bit conditionally overwhelming, and requires more execution than this section should. If you reach the level where you feel you need to learn Overdrive combos, please look further down the page at the Overdrive section.

The 22C wallsplat is range dependant and cannot be done point blank with dash momentum. Furthermore, on Jin, Taokaka, Arakune, Bang, Carl, Amane, and Azrael, you need to be spaced back from the corner quite a bit. Needs dash momentum for Taokaka, making this combo extremely finnicky on her.

Combo Theory

Generally, combos will involve setting up the route in a way to combo into one special, then linking off of that into an air combo that ends in Nightmare Edge (j.214C). Specials that can be continued from include Gauntlet Hades (214B/j.214B), Blood Scythe (214D/j.214D), Not Over Yet (22C), and Dead Spike (236D). In the corner, D Inferno Divider into Straight Punch (623D~236C~236C) can also be combo'd from, though the time spent dropping from such a height often eats up a lot of combo time. Combo enders are usually Nightmare Edge (j.214C), Hell's Fang (214A), and D Inferno Divider into Ax Kick (623D~236C~214D).

Gauntlet Hades and Blood Scythe usually require some form of launching, which can include 6A, 6C, and throw. Not Over Yet and Dead Spike usually combo from knockdowns, such as 3C, 2D, and anti-air 5D.

In the corner from Long starters, oftentimes two combo filler specials can be done before going to the combo ender. For example,

  • 5B > 2C > 5C > 3C > 2D > 236D~66, 5B > 5C > 5D(1) > 214B~214D, 5B > 2C > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > j.214C~214D

Note that while drives and specials are all useful to continue Ragna's combos, any hits with life-steal properties generally have poor damage proration, so it is recommended to use non-life-steal hits early on during a combo.

Air combo enders are typically done in one of the following ways:

  • 5B > 5C > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.C > j.D > Nightmare Edge or D Inferno Divider -- Generally the most damaging air combo route, but must be done relatively early for 5C > j.C to still connect.
  • 2C > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > Nightmare Edge or D Inferno Divider -- Usually done in the corner following a Dead Spike dash cancel. When directly under the opponent, 5B and 5C tend to whiff and cross under when attempted.
  • 5B > (2C) > 6A > hjc > j.C > j.D > jc > j.D > Nightmare Edge or D Inferno Divider -- This is done when the combo has taken enough time that 5B > 5C will no longer validly combo, which necessitates the 6A. 6A gives far more untech time, but also heavily prorates the damage of the combo.

Generally neither of Ragna's Distortions see much use in combos since they tend to add relatively little damage for the 50 meter cost (the threat of Carnage Scissors as a long-ranged cut through zoning tends to be far more relevant, as well). However, they provide relatively good life steal values when enhanced by Overdrive, for when an Overdrive combo would otherwise not kill - OD Devoured by Darkness (214214D) in particular provides a whopping base 1000 life steal.

Ragna can oftentimes use Overdrive Cancel or Rapid Cancel to dramatically increase the damage of a shorter combo (such as 5B > 5C > 214A~214D), though he gets heavily diminishing rewards if the combo has already run most of its time out. The goal in most cases is to achieve around 4000 damage whenever resources are spent, or 5000+ if a combination of two or more of (counter-hit, RC, distortion) happens.

Overdrive changes the properties of all of Ragna's life stealing hits, oftentimes giving wall-bounce, ground-bounce, or other properties, along with things such as dash cancel or jump cancel capability. Generally, all life steal hits can be combo'd from, greatly extending possibilities for continuing any route until either the combo timer or Overdrive runs out. Optimization of routes can also be done in either higher damage or higher life steal directions, depending on the situation.
