I’ve been watching quite a few japanese Akuma videos lately, and one thing I’ve noticed is that elaborate combos/strings are hard to come by. I’m not sure whether this is because the players in these videos are inexperienced or because long demon strings are too risky in tournament play, but I was wondering whether anyone can enlighten me as to the various combinations Akuma has at his disposal after an opening is created. So far I’ve only come across/attempted the following:
dive kick, s.lp, lk shoryuken + throw (usually throws the opponent off)
hp, lk hurricaine, hp, mk hurricaine
hk hurricaine, hp shoryuken (when hurricaine connects with the opponent in air)
cr.lk, lk hurricaine, hp shoryuken
lk hurricaine, s.lp, dash, s.lp (juggling opponent into corner)
s.hp, lk hurricaine shoryuken
I realized there are an infinite amount of variations on these little combinations, but I guess what I’m really after are the elaborate demon strings. I’ve seen them at work often at my local arcade, but I’m usually unable to follow every step. Also I noticed HermoNaz mentioned something about a 16-hit combo in the other thread and was curious as to how said combo is executed.
