- 2b > 5b > 6b > 5c (< 2c) > 623a > j.a > j.b > j.236c
Basic combo.

- 2b > 5b > 6b > 5c > 623a > (j.2369a > land > 623a) > j.b > j.236a > land > 623a > j.a > j.b > j.236c > 623a > 2147a
Better basic combo

- 2b > 5b > 6b > 5c > 623a > (j.2369a > land > 623a) > j.b > j.236a > land > 623a > j.a > j.b > j.236c > land > 623a > 2147a > activate > [midscreen 236b > 236236a] or [edge (236236b x0~2 >) 236b > 236236a]
Unscaled Dark Excalibur super combo. Slightly delay doing the super cancel until Dark Saber does the second slash so the fireball totally forms and causes unscalling. 6-7k+ damage.

- 2b > 5b > 6b > 5c > 623a > (j.2369a > land > 623a) > j.b > j.236a > land > 623a > j.a > j.b > j.236c > 623a > 2147a > activate > [edge of screen 236236b > 236236b >] > 236b > 236236c
Grail combo. Now generalized to work anywhere! You must do 236b > 236236c as super cancel almost immediately. 8k-9k+ damage

- throw > (if midscreen, run up a little bit) 623a > (j.2369a > 623a) > j.b > j.236c > (623a > 2147a > activate [midscreen 236b > 236236a] or [edge (236236b x0~2 >) 236b > 236236a])
Throw combo. It's pretty much every other combo except without any ground normals to start.
- 421c > 6c > combo
You can combo off 421c. Only 6c will launch after it.

- j.236a > j.c > 5b > 2b > 6b > 5c > 236b > (RC) > 5b > 2b > 6b > 5c > 623a > 236236b > tk j.236b > 623a > tk j.236b > 236c > 623a > 236c > 623a > 2362369b > 236c > 623a > (Activate) > 623a > 2362369b > 236236b > 236c > 623a > 214c
COOL COMBO VIDEO COMBO BRO. 10k, instant kill (Except on dark saber and berserker)

You can add 5b > 2b > 6b > 236b > RG at the start of any combo

If you do the TK j.2369a to start the combo, the next bounce must be done as j.b > j.236a only. If you skip the TK, then you must do j.a > j.b > j.236a

Keep in mind that you can skip doing certain moves and still make the combo work. For example, after j.236c you can: j.236c > activate or j.236c > 623a > activate or j.236c > 623a > 2137a > activate and the rest of the combo will still work


- Using 214b > RC and changing when you do the RC can lead to ambiguous crossups because you can appear on either side.

- 421c is slow but unblockable. If you get them scared into blocking a lot you can use it without having to get into throw range. Combo afterwards with 623a.
