Seeing as Evo’s this very weekend, I thought it might be interesting to have some fun at the expense of the character I’ll be playing, Yun.
The objective here is to come up with a combo that meets or exceeds all the criteria for a given challenge. I have an answer for each challenge, but it may not be the only one. Also, the Extra Credit challenges represent things I wasn’t able to do, so kudos to you if you can solve them! Also, there’s an important rule everyone needs to be aware of:
All combos must be able to be successfully performed with the opponent’s stun bar completely empty.
Otherwise it’s just no fun, right? Here we go!
Challenge 1: Connect 8 Palm Strikes in a single combo.
Set Up: Opponent is Q, jumping and in the corner.
Time a palm so it connects with the very end of the palm animation, at the top of his jump. Juggle it with palm xx Genei Jin, [walk up palm x 3], walk up strong, [walk up palm x3], Genei Jin ends, whatever.
Challenge 2: Use all of Yun’s special moves in a single combo…without using Genei Jin.
Set Up: Opponent is Q, and Yun is in the corner.
Zenpou Tenshin, walk up slow jab/short/strong xx lk upkicks (1 hit), land, juggle with You Hou, juggle with jab shoulder, juggle with palm, juggle with rush punch.
The other version, palm first, then shoulder, doesn’t connect in this set up.
Challenge 3: Perform a 16 hit combo…using Sourai Rengeki.
Set up: Opponent is Urien. At the beginning of the match, he throws lp reflector, then dashes forward four times. Yun dashes backwards as he throws the reflector, and lets urien push him the remainer for proper spacing.
jab/jab/short/strong xx jab shoulder xx sourai rengeki (4th hit hits the reflector), link cr.mk xx sourai rengeki (reflector dissipates, all of the second one hits)
Challenge 4: Connect all 3 stocks of Sourai Rengeki in a single combo.
Set up: Opponent is Urien, in the corner, with Yun standing next to him. He throws a lp Aegis, and then begins jumping. Yun takes 2 hits from the Aegis, getting pushed behind it.
As Urien comes down from his jump, activate one stock of Sourai Rengeki. The first hit will trade with the reflector, popping Urien back up into the air. Brief pause, do it a second time once Yun recovers and Urien heads back down. Repeat once more for the third. The Reflector disappears at this point, so you can juggle from here on at will.
Challenge 5: List 10 different moves that can lead into a combo when cancelled or linked into Genei Jin.
Solved!!! - by N88888888

You can also do anti-air lk upkicks (1-hit), land+activate, whatever (In the corner).
Challenge 6: Perform a combo that successfully inflicts 100% stun.
Set up: Opponent is Akuma, jumping and in the corner.
Perform a close standing mk timed to hit at the very tip of Akuma’s jump, and juggle with palm xx You Hou, jab shoulder, forward fierce, jab rush punch. Actually does 100% stun at the forward fierce, the rush punch is just gravy.
Thanks to those that participated!
