Section 2: Introduction

Since Street Fighter 2: World Warrior, combos have been a wonderful 
discovery that makes a player’s offensive capabilities more potent, 
more creative, and more dynamic.  However, they can also be pretty 
risky and not necessarily the best thing to do to get the positioning 
you need on your opponent.  In fact, you really can play this game for 
years with a fair amount of success without them, like I did.  Of 
course, now that I know about combos, I’m hooked and I’m not going 
back.  That’s why I’m writing this FAQ for the person who may be 
looking for more powerful ways to exploit their opponent’s openings.  
If you can understand the concepts in this FAQ and apply them 
individually and collectively in the right situations, you can end your 
matches more quickly and force your opponent to make fewer mistakes 
against you.

Here's a layout of the joystick directions that I use.  (Character 
facing to the right.)

         ub=up-back      u=up      uf=up-forward
                \         |         /
                  \       |       /
                    \     |     /
                      \   |   /
                        \ | /
         b=back ----------+----------- f=forward
                        / | \
                      /   |   \
                    /     |     \
                  /       |       \
                /         |         \
         db=down-back   d=down   df=down-forward

Here's the button layout, in case you may have forgotten or are 
confused by the terms I use for each move:

           Light    Medium     Hard

(Punches)  jab      strong     fierce

(Kicks)    short    forward    roundhouse

This FAQ will assume that you know some Street Fighter terminology.  If 
you find terms you don’t understand, there are plenty of FAQs and 
resources that can help you if you look around the internet.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 3: What is a Cross-Up?

A cross-up is an attack done at such a position that your character 
ends up on the other side of your opponent.  There are moves that 
cross-up when they miss the opponent, but this FAQ will focus on 
attacks that cross-up the opponent after they make contact, when 
properly spaced.  The most common way to achieve this is from the air.  
For example, Dictator (M. Bison in USA; Vega in Japan) can jump forward 
and hit the very back of his opponent’s shoulder with the back foot of 
his jumping roundhouse kick and land on the other side of his opponent.  
Cross-ups are extremely valuable because they force your opponent to 
guess which way to block and because when your character lands, he or 
she is put in point-blank range of your opponent.  The ideal cross-up 
will also hit deep enough to present your character with an opponent 
reeling in hit stun and sliding into them in the same direction they 
were just jumping.  It’s the perfect setup for being at point-blank 
range.  A blocked cross-up opens up a ton of mind games, while a cross-
up that hits the opponent sets up a big damage combo.

Keep in mind that all non-knockdown aerial attacks that hit a standing 
opponent stun them for 11 animation frames (or 11/60ths of a second), 
the same hit-stun as a grounded weak attack.  (If the opponent was 
crouching, they reel the same as if they were hit by a grounded move of 
the same strength.)  Just about all of the cross-ups listed will allow 
for additional attacks when they hit a crouching opponent.  Some cross-
ups allow for additional attacks when they hit certain standing 
opponents.  Some cross-ups knock down without allowing any follow-up 
while others knock down and start a juggle.  I will qualify all cross-
ups and list who they start combos according to if they are standing 
and if they are crouching.   If an attack doesn’t knock down and cannot 
connect deep enough on a character to start a combo, it will leave you 
open to be countered.  I will note these moves with an asterisk (*).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 4: What is a Link?

A link is a series of moves in which you hit the opponent with a move 
and then hit them another move as soon as the first one ends and before 
they recover from hit-stun.  In this sense, a jumping attack followed 
by a ground attack is a link.  However, an easy example of this on the 
ground is hitting an opponent with Ken’s crouching strong punch and 
then following that up with his crouching roundhouse sweep for a 2 hit 
linking knockdown combo.  It's a simple concept on the surface, but 
it's not always as easy to put into action, as you'll see when you try 
the links in this FAQ for yourself.

Some moves recover so quickly that you can hold the joystick in a 
direction and mash the next button rapidly and have the next attack 
connect.  However, mashing the button is imprecise and some of these 
links leave a *very* small window of time (as small as 1/60th of a 
second!) in which to link the next move.  Unless you can press a button 
60 times a second, mashing is not the way to go.

The best way to master all of the links on this FAQ is to press the 
button of the attack you want to link into right when the previous 
attack ends.  This becomes even more important when you start 
attempting links that involve going from close or standing to crouching 
moves or from crouching to close or standing moves.  When linking moves 
that alternate from standing to crouching or vice versa, the best 
method is to press the direction and button combination for the attack 
you want at the same time, timing that action to coincide with the end 
of the move you’re linking from.  This will cause your character to 
execute the next attack immediately, skipping the animated process of 
standing up into their standing fighting stance or crouching down into 
their crouching stance.  The ultimate result is that you take maximum 
advantage of the time window you have from your move ending to the time 
your opponent comes out of hit stun to continue the combo.   For 
example, to link Guile’s crouching strong punch to his close fierce 
punch, hold down (or down-back if you’re charging his Sonic Boom) on 
the joystick and press strong punch, continue to hold down on the 
joystick until the animation for the punch ends, then let go of the 
joystick so that it’s in the neutral position (or move the joystick to 
back if you’re still charging his Sonic Boom) and press fierce punch.  
You should see Guile go immediately into the close fierce punch without 
seeing him start to stand up from his crouch and, if you timed 
everything correctly, you’ll have a two hit combo.  Likewise, with Chun 
Li, to link from her close strong punch into her crouching forward 
kick, press strong punch with the joystick in neutral (or back if 
you’re charging a move), wait for the attack to end, and then 
immediately press down (or down-back if you’re still charging a move) 
and forward kick.  Just like in Guile’s example, you should see Chun Li 
immediately perform her crouching forward without starting to duck down 
into her crouching stance and, again, if you did it right, you’ll have 
a two hit combo.  As you can see, this technique can work with any 
joystick direction that has to do with standing or crouching, and you 
will see the significance of this when we get to the combos for each 
character.

So, bottom line, links are all about learning the timing of the moves 
you’re linking from.  Mastering links will take practice, but don’t 
worry, some attacks are much easier to link after than others and I’ve 
listed them for you.  If you’re a beginner, start with those.  Once you 
get those down, you can move to linking from the moves I didn’t list as 
“easy to link from”, but by then you may find that you may not need to 
unless you’re making a combo video or trying to show off.

For ease of reading and saving myself some keystrokes, I will use the 
terms 'close' for close standing attacks, 'stand' for far standing 
attacks, and 'crouch' for crouching attacks.

I will list the links in this format:

(move): (moves that will link after that move)

If I list a move without listing any qualifiers (close, crouch, or 
stand) or list a special move without indicating what button to push 
for it, it means that any version of the move will work.  For example, 
after any of Chun Li's strong attacks (close, stand, or crouch), any 
fierce attack that comes out will work.  In mentioning any special or 
super moves, I will list the motion so that you know exactly what move 
I'm talking about.  Also remember that '/' means 'or'.

So, using Cammy’s close fierce as an example...

close fierce: stand jab, crouch/stand strong, forward, fierce, crouch 
roundhouse, jump towards short, jump towards roundhouse, Cannon Spike 
(f,d,df+kick).

...the block of text above means that, after a close fierce, Cammy 
recovers quickly enough to hit the opponent with far standing jab, 
crouching or far standing strong, any forward kick, any fierce punch, 
crouching roundhouse, jumping towards short, jumping towards 
roundhouse, and any version of the Cannon Spike (f,d,df+kick).  I hope 
that makes sense.  It's usually the case that you can't link two close 
medium or hard attacks together and there are very few cases in which 
you can link a special move with itself.  Keep this in mind when 
reading this FAQ and trying out the links for yourself.

Additionally, in listing the links, I list moves that link in normal 
circumstances and then I list moves that will link after a meaty (or 
‘early’) attack.  A meaty attack is an attack done either as the 
opponent is either getting up or landing from being hit out of the air 
by a move that doesn’t knockdown, whether it’s a normal move or a hold.  
The attack is timed so that the move is hitting at its last possible 
instance.  For example, with Fei Long's crouch fierce, you time the 
move so that your opponent gets hit RIGHT BEFORE Fei Long starts to 
draw back his hands and recover from the move.  If you want to be 
technical, you are hitting the opponent with the last possible hitting 
frame of animation of the move.  The better you time it, the more time 
you have to hit them with something else.  One more thing: it logically 
follows that if you can link something after a non-meaty attack, you 
can also link it from a meaty attack.

For links that involve certain conditions, those conditions will be in 
parenthesis.  I’ll always start with point-blank range links and then 
move outward to full screen range.

Everything else should be self-explanatory. :)

Note that these links can be used in ANY version of Street Fighter 2 
from Street Fighter 2: World Warrior up to Super Street Fighter 2 
Turbo, provided that the character in question has that move and the 
frame data is the same.  Feel free to apply this knowledge in other 
versions of Street Fighter 2 wherever appropriate.

Section 5: What is a Combo?

This section is where things can get a bit complicated.  I’ll just dive 
right into the specific terminology I will be using.  I’ll start simple 
and increase in complexity from there.  Each concept builds on the 
previous one, so take them one at a time and you should understand it.

Combo:  Short for ‘combination’, a combo is a series of attacks that, 
when they hit the opponent, cannot be escaped.  There are several types 
of combos that we will be dealing with in this FAQ and some combos can 
only be done by using specific move cancellation techniques.

Super Combo (SC):  Each character has a super combo (SC), commonly 
called a “super”, that can be performed with a full super meter.  This 
move, when it fully connects, can be expected to do anywhere from 50%-
75% damage.  SCs vary from character to character and usually have the 
same two things in common.  One, they are done by performing the motion 
for the special move they resemble twice before pressing the button to 
execute it.  Two, they usually have invincible startup frames, making 
them the perfect reversal special move.

Link (,): As it was stated in the above section, a link combo is a 
combo in which you hit the opponent with a move and then hit them with 
the following move as soon as the first one ends and before they 
recover from hit-stun.

Chain (-):  A chain combo consists of a series of regular moves that 
are interrupted into each other.  The first move hits, the joystick and 
button command for the next move is entered, and then the recovery of 
the move that just hit is *interrupted* by the next move that was 
input.  In the Street Fighter 2 series, this can only be done with 
rapid fire light attacks (jab and short attacks).  For example, I’m 
sure that, at some point, CPU Ryu has shown you that you can chain 2 to 
8 crouching short kicks together.  Each one of those kicks is being 
interrupted, which is why he can hit you with so many of them.  In 
addition to this, you can also cancel a rapid fire light attack into 
*any* light attack of your choosing, even if the next attack doesn’t 
rapid-fire cancel.  This is important because when you rapid-fire chain 
two identical weak attacks together, you cannot cancel the second 
attack into a special move.  You have to chain into a different weak 
attack in order to be able to cancel that move into a special move.  
This is further explained in the “Chain Canceling” section.

2-in-1 (XX):  A 2-in-1, also called a ‘cancel’ or ‘interrupt’, is a 
normal move interrupted into a special move input.  The normal move 
hits, the command for the special move is performed, and the recovery 
of the normal move is replaced by the special move.  This is the common 
way to do combos in most fighting games, but you cannot pick just any 
normal move and special move combination and actually have both moves 
connect.  You have to know the ranges, speeds, and hit stun effects of 
the moves you’re using to successfully put these moves together.  One 
of the best known 2-in-1 combos around is Guile’s close standing fierce 
XX Fierce Sonic Boom combo.  However, in Super Turbo, you cannot 
directly 2-in-1 into a Super Combo (or SC) move, unlike the Street 
Fighter Alpha or Street Fighter Three series.  This is because the 
frame window for cancelling a hitting normal move into a Super Combo is 
a very tight 7 frames!  (Special moves get a 20 frame window.)  To fit 
that complex Super Combo motion into that tight 7 frame window, you 
have to use one of four “special” cancellation techniques.

Negative Edge (NE): The first technique is called “Negative Edge”.  
Since Street Fighter 1, the game has been designed to read button 
presses and *button releases* when detecting special moves.  So, you 
can actually hold down a button, do the motion for a special move or 
Super Combo, and, upon releasing the button, the special move or super 
combo you did the motion for will immediately execute.  So, to cancel a 
normal move into a special move or Super Combo, simply press and hold 
the button for a cancelable attack, making sure it connects, of course, 
do the motion for the special move or Super Combo you wish to cancel 
into, and then let go of the button at the end of the motion.  For 
example, with Ken’s Shoryureppa SC, you can walk up to point-blank 
range on your opponent, press neutral+fierce to get a close fierce, do 
the two Dragon Punch motions for the Shoryureppa (f,d,df,f,d,df+punch) 
and then let go of fierce when you get to the last down-forward input 
of the joystick.  The motions have to be done very, very quickly, but 
it’s possible.  As I just said, you can use Negative Edge to cancel 
into any special or super move, so it is very useful, particularly when 
the special move you want ends in a blocking position.  Now that you 
know Negative Edge has existed since Street Fighter 1, you might want 
to go back and try those special moves you were having trouble with.  
Say “Shoryuken!” to Sagat for me.  Heh.

The second technique we’ll call “motion partitioning” (MP).  Taking 
Ryu’s Shinkuu Hadouken SC as an example, since the motion for his SC is 
(d,df,f,d,df,f+punch), you can break up the motion by using a move that 
doesn’t overlap with one of his special moves.  So, since Ryu doesn’t 
have a d, df, f+kick move, most players combo into the Shinkuu Hadouken 
by inputting d, df, f, d+forward kick, df, f+punch.  If you break that 
down, it’s just like doing his crouch forward XX Hadouken combo, but 
you’re doing a quarter-circle forward motion before starting it.  (I 
actually find it easier to execute the combo in that example by linking 
from another move, like either his Rushing Gut Punch or crouch strong, 
so that you can buffer in the first quarter-circle forward motion while 
the first move is happening.  Give it a try.)

The third technique we’ll go over is “charge partitioning” (CP).  Using 
Dee Jay’s Double Dread Kick SC this time, the motion for that move is 
charge b, f, b, f+kick.  This time, it’s trickier because Dee Jay has 
charge moves with punch (Max-Out) and kick (Dread Kick).  The way to 
get around overlapping with those moves and comboing into the Double 
Dread Kick is...charge b, f, b, *neutral*+strong punch, f+kick.  This 
is comparable to charging down, returning the joystick to neutral and 
pressing a button, and then cancelling that standing move by pressing 
up and a button for your charge down, up+button special move.  The 
difference, however, is that the extra input of the neutral move is 
just enough to make the game not read that input as a Max Out, which it 
will if you do charge b, f, b+strong.  Once the strong punch connects, 
press forward and kick as if you were doing a Dread Kick and you’ll get 
a Super Combo pause and the Double Dread Kick will come out.

The fourth and final technique is actually a combination of two skills 
that have to be used together to put a SC into a combo.  The following 
is taken from the Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo article on the 
Shoryuken.com Wiki (http://www.shoryuken.com/wiki/).  ShinVega is the 
author.

Kara Cancelling (KC): Kara (Japanese for “empty”) cancelling is when 
you cancel a normal move immediately into a special or super move. The 
cancel is done so quickly that you don't even see the normal move come 
out (but you can hear it). By itself, kara canceling is really not that 
useful in ST aside from one small glitch. (For several characters, you 
can shorten the recovery time of a Strong or Fierce fireball by kara 
cancelling a Jab or Short.) However, kara canceling is extremely useful 
when used in conjunction with renda canceling... 

Chain Cancelling (formerly known as "Renda Cancelling")(RC): In 
Japanese, "renda" ?? is the word they use for rapid-fire chain combos, 
like cr.Short->cr.Short. In old school Street Fighter (in the pre-Alpha 
games), you can not cancel chain combos. If you chain two cr.Shorts, 
you can not cancel the second one. Using kara cancelling however, you 
can get around this limitation. This is called chain cancelling ("renda 
canceling", in Japanese).  The best example is probably the most 
practical example: Ken's cr.Short->cr.Short xx super. The input is D 
Short, D Short, D/F, F, D, D/F, F Short any punch. So in order to do 
TWO cr.Shorts into super, you actually need to hit the Short button 
THREE times. That st.Short on the end is being kara canceled into the 
super, which is why you never see it. Also note that you must go all 
the way to towards (even though Ken's super motion only requires you to 
go to down/towards). This is because for chain cancelling, you must 
switch from crouching to standing (or from standing to crouching). 
Because you started with cr.Shorts, you have to end with a st.Short. 
The reason why chain cancelling is so incredibly good is because you 
can hit confirm (wait to see if it hits or not). If the shorts are 
blocked, go for a throw or a DP. If the shorts connect, just continue 
the combo into super. 

(End quote)

Tick Throw (TT):  A tick throw sounds like its name.  You make contact 
with the opponent with a move and then, provided the opponent hasn’t 
been knocked down, you throw them when they come out of hit stun or 
block stun.  (This should tell you that this is not a *true* combo, but 
it is important for the purposes of this FAQ since throws *can* dizzy, 
even though they have a very small stun value.)  Now, I just alluded to 
the fact that you cannot throw a person while they are in hit stun or 
in block stun.  In addition to that, your opponent can perform a 
reversal special move or reversal throw in the very last animation 
frame of getting up, in the very last animation frame of coming out of 
hit stun or block stun, and in the very instant animation frame that 
they land from being hit out of the air by a move that doesn’t knock 
down.  In light of all of this, the logical conclusion is that you must 
time and *disguise* your attempt properly because tick throws can be 
escaped or countered if the opponent knows they are coming.  For 
example, Zangief is known for throwing out an attack and then either 
interrupting that attack or linking after that attack into his Spinning 
Pile Driver.  This is very effective because you can link or cancel 
into the Spinning Pile Driver with such timing that it grabs 
*immediately* when the opponent comes out of hit/block stun.  As in 
this case, you have an extra advantage if your character’s throw range 
is greater than your opponent’s, as this allows you to perform tick 
throw attempts without worrying about being counter-thrown.  Because 
the throw range of the Spinning Pile Driver is much greater than any 
regular throw, counter-throwing Zangief is *very* difficult (if not 
impossible) when this is properly done.  However, a reversal special 
move that’s either invincible on startup, cannot be thrown on startup, 
instantly hits on startup (provided you make contact), or is instantly 
airborne will save you.  In other words, if you get thrown, it’s your 
own fault because you let your opponent get that close and you guessed 
wrong.  It’s not “cheap”.  There’s no such thing.  It’s a mind game and 
mind games are very present in high-level play.  Out-think your 
opponent and you will win.

Bread and Butter (BnB) Combo: A combo that is usually one of four 
things: easy to confirm that it hit so that you can continue/abort the 
combo, easy to execute, widely applicable, and/or leaves you safe on 
block.  In short, if you’re looking for a combo to use in any given 
situation that your opponent is open, this is the one.

Dizzy (@) Combo: A combo that will dizzy a non-dizzy opponent with an 
empty dizzy meter.  Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo is somewhat random in 
granting dizzies, but it generally takes a minimum of 2 hard hits plus 
2 medium ones.  In the first ten seconds of any Street Fighter 2 game, 
it can take as few as 2 hard hits to dizzy.  Also remember that the 
dizzy meter empties if the character doesn’t take damage within 3 
seconds.  (Though I will list this symbol next to tick-throw setups 
that will dizzy if the throw connects, remember that tick-throws are 
escapable.)

Re-dizzy (R@) Combo: A combo that, when performed on a dizzy opponent, 
will dizzy them again!  (Though I will list this symbol next to tick-
throw setups that will re-dizzy if the throw connects, remember that 
tick-throws are escapable.)

Touch of Death (ToD) Combo: A combo that will dizzy a non-dizzy 
opponent with an empty dizzy meter, do more than 50% damage, and, 
provided the conditions for connecting this combo are the same when the 
opponent stands up in a dizzy stupor, you’ll be able to repeat the 
combo and knock them out.  So, in other words, they let you touch them 
and now they’re “dead”.  ToD combos do not include SCs unless the 
performance of the combo fills an empty super meter in the process.  
However, because of ST’s damage levels, particularly from Super Combos, 
dizzying your opponent and getting them below 50% life will usually 
give you the round via other non-ToD combos.  (Though I will list this 
symbol next to tick-throw setups that will dizzy and do more than 50% 
damage if the throw connects, remember that tick-throws are escapable!)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 6: Character Specific Cross-ups, Links, and Combos

Alright, here’s the section you were waiting for!  All of the knowledge 
that was shared in the above sections is put to use below.  If you 
didn’t catch on by now, the title of this section tells you what order 
you’ll be applying your offensive tools during your attack.

Here’s a quick reference guide to this section, so you don’t have to 
scroll back up through the FAQ.

Cross-ups:
(!) = Cross-up that knocks down and doesn’t allow a juggle
(&) = Cross-up that knocks down and starts a juggle
(*) = Cross-up that doesn’t knock down and can not start a combo, which 
means you’ll be open to counter-attack

Links:

(move): (moves that will link after that move)

, = ‘and’
/ = ‘or’
Close = close standing attack
Stand = far standing attack
Crouch = crouching attack
Meaty = Attack is timed so that the last hitting frame (or as close to 
it as possible) connects as the opponent is either getting up or 
landing from being hit out of the air by a move that doesn’t knockdown

Note: If I list a normal move without listing any qualifiers (close, 
crouch, or stand) or list a special move without indicating what button 
to push for it, it means that any version of the move that comes out 
will work.  For links that involve certain conditions, those conditions 
will be in parenthesis.  I’ll always start with point-blank range links 
and then move outward to full screen range.

Combos:

, = Link Combo
- = Chain Combo or Rapid-Fire Chain
XX = 2-in-1 or Special/Super Move Cancellation
NE = Negative Edge
MP = Motion Partitioning
CP = Charge Partitioning
KC = Kara (Empty) Cancellation
RC = Renda (Rapid-Fire Chain) Cancellation
SC = Super Combo
TT = Tick Throw
@ = Dizzy Combo
R@ = Re-dizzy Combo
ToD = Touch of Death Combo

Note: For each character, all of their cross-ups will be listed first 
followed by their link trees.  After that, I’ll go into their combo 
information.  For each character’s combo section, I will list all of 
their chainable and cancellable attacks.  Then, I will list the most 
powerful possible combo into each of that character’s special moves and 
super combo from point-blank range on the ground.  This will help you 
in being able to gauge the “combo-ability” of each character’s special 
moves and, ultimately, help you come up with your own combos.  Finally, 
to help you get started even more quickly, I’ll also list some sample 
combos for you to try, all sorted by their relative skill level.  For 
combos ending with super combos, I’ll even give you what I find to be 
the best cancellation method for that particular situation.  

Consider this FAQ your “Training Mode Challenge Guide”.  Can you 
perform all of the combos here?  Go get a napkin for excess drool and 
put a pillow under your chin so it doesn’t hit the floor! :)

That's all, folks!

What to expect from the next version:
Anything that I missed that people correct me on.

Please, please, PLEASE send me a private message on Shoryuken.com 
(FreshOJ) or e-mail me if there are any errors.  I want this FAQ to be 
its best.


Credits

First and foremost, I give glory and honor to God through my Lord and 
Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave me the abilities, talents, resources, 
and the passion that I have for SF and for giving me victory in this 
life and the next.

My wife, Lara, who is the epitome of the term “God-send”.  She’s more 
than what I wanted and everything I never had.  Her amazing outward 
beauty is a mere shadow of the inward beauty she possesses.

My son, Christopher, who probably won’t even know how to read this FAQ 
for a couple of years yet.  One look at his smiling, two-toothed grin 
takes me out of the worst despair.

David Wright a.k.a. SF2Freak, for initially storing the Link FAQ for me 
because I didn't want to risk something silly happening like the hard 
drive having to be erased...which happened the last time I tried this.  
It’s 9 years later, but I still have no problem giving him props.

NKI, for pointing me to T.Akiba’s Street Fighter 2 Series Frame Data, 
which I used to help me in exploring combo possibilities, and also for 
his work with Seth Killian (s-kill) on the Super Turbo Touch of Death 
FAQ.  Alt.games.sf2 for life!  Thanks for help with Chun Li combos, by 
the way!

ShinVega, for gracious allowing me to quote the Kara and Chain 
Cancelling articles he wrote for the Shoryuken.com Wiki.  There’s a lot 
of great info there and he puts out great stuff on the forums, too.

James Chen a.k.a. jchensor, for being one of the true combo masters.  
Check out any of his Combo FAQs and you’ll see why I imitated his combo 
listing format! :) Just when I think he’s done, he comes up with 
something else...and gives me another idea.  One of these days, I’ll 
play you and get you below 50% life, James! :)  Thanks for the Cammy’s 
combos, by the way!

Eggo and SweetJohnnyV, for their help in buffing out the Dhalsim combo 
section.  Who knew he had so many combos?  Now you know.

Megamanpb, for help with some Honda’s combos.  Hitting with the Hundred 
Hand Slap to tick into the Oichio Throw?  I should’ve known about that.

3pwood, for his help with Dee Jay’s combos, mon.

Syxx573, for also helping with Cammy’s combos.  I need to see more 
matches between you and James!

Nohoho, for his Blanka expertise.  His bite *is* worse than his bark.

Semi-Charmed and TheGreatMole, for their input on Zangief combos.

Blitzfu and Oldschool_BR, for help with Ryu’s Rushing Gut Punch cross-
up combos.

VOLTECH and chunbelievable, for help with Chun Li’s combos.

Gridman, for help with T.Hawk’s combos.

GensouGoroshi, for help with Dictator’s combos.

Jumpsuit Jesse, for his input with Fei Long.  (Start combos with close 
fierce and meaty crouch fierce for the win!)  His Fei Long’s legendary, 
so he gets props. :)

Gamest and TZW, for inspiring me to become the combo fanatic that I am, 
along with providing me with a resource with which to perfect this 
FAQ...or try to, anyway.

Shoryuken.com, for inspiring me to bring this FAQ up to date.  To all 
of my fellow combo enthusiasts, I hope you find something you didn’t 
know about.  To the beginners, read this FAQ and soak it up like a 
sponge.

Alt.games.sf2, for being the first place where I actually heard the 
word 'combo' and then made me understand what it meant...even though I 
was already doing them in a scrubby kind of way.  Without that 
newsgroup, I'm sure I'd still be a scrub and there certainly wouldn’t 
be a Shoryuken.com without it.  Alt.games.sf2, home of the true Street 
Fighter OG’s! :)

And also, anyone else out there that either told me links or combos 
that I wouldn’t have thought of or simply cheered me on as I took on 
this task.  Thanks to all of y'all.

Bottom line: ('cause information that isn't shared is *still* 
worthless.)
