Combos & Tricks

Arcade Machine Pic

Touch of Death (ToD) Combo

Vega (Claw) does not have a ToD combo

A ToD combo is one that, once the initial hit connects, there is nothing the opponent can do but sit there and watch his character die.
ToD combos are typically combos that do 50% damage (or more) and dizzy, allowing you to repeat the combo and kill the opponent.
(source: http://nki.combovideos.com/)


Other Combos
youtube.com link to video (combos start at 2:26)
(meaty combos at 2:29; 2:32)
(cross-up combo at 2:36)

youtube.com link to video
(meaty combo at 0:17)

A meaty is when you execute a ground attack with careful timing so that a knocked down opponent will stand up into it while it is hitting.
This creates two advantages:
1) the opponent must either block or attempt to execute a difficult reversal move.
2) it shortens the recovery time before you can do another move, enabling you to combo off moves that normally are too slow to combo off of.

Various Tricks
youtube.com link to video
(1:50 in) setup: Ryu does a meaty uppercut against a Claw performing a Super wall dive. While Ryu is in the middle of his Shoryuken, Claw grabs him with Claw's super.

This works because there are two frames where the Shoryuken is on the ground and NOT invincible (therefor throwable).
