SSBU/Kazuya/Combos

Kazuya


Intro

Kazuya’s base combo game is very simple and will include very few reads. Because of its simplicity and repetitive nature, Kazuya can basically start at a mid point in the combo and KO anyone at any percents. Adding gaps into his combos can add more damage that can be used to avoid certain routes or just for style.

The Touch of Death

Standard Combo

(starter) > EWGF > NAir > (filler) > EWGF > NAir > (filler) > (ender)

Filler is not needed.

The Normal Touch of DeathBan this character
Very Hard
CJab > CJab > EWGF > NAir > EWGF > NAir > DGF > EWGF > USmash

Done with mash toggle set to air dodge with random DI in, away, or none.

This Kazuya's most common ToD. It includes a starter, the Simple DI Option Select, and the DGF ender. The tip for EWGF > USmash is to dash forward after EWGF (Simple DI OS) then USmash.

Rage Drive Touch of DeathI said, ban this character
Very Hard
CJab > CJab > EWGF > NAir > EWGF > NAir > DGF > Rage Drive

Done with mash toggle set to air dodge with random DI in, away, or none.

An example of a ToD that uses a lot of filler.

The Unorthodox Touch of DeathWhy does this work
Very Hard
DGF > DBTilt > DFTilt > EWGF > NAir > DGF > CJab > CJab > Hellsweep

Done with mash toggle set to air dodge with random DI in, away, or none.


Looping the combo too many times can make NAir start to send into tumble and end the combo prematurely letting the opponent escape with their stock. The spreadsheet by XenoRose shows what percent NAir sends into tumble for each character: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1L5lLtfwxuUetYl-foX8m8iXyMDcAJGnvajkixhJ7B7w/edit?usp=sharing

Option Selects

The ToD is a true combo, but the opponent can mix up their DI (in or away) to make the Kazuya guess wrong and mess up.

Simple DI OS

The most simple option select is to dash forward then jump. On no DI the opponent will be right above Kazuya, on DI away they will be in front of Kazuya, and on DI in Kazuya will auto-turn before jumping. This will make NAir be able to hit with little to no extra air drift needed.

No Side Switch DI OS

https://twitter.com/ViedViper/status/1454143422177099776?s=20&t=VVn_Xeog4Cx0aVCyFH1bxg

The input in numpad notation is 62153, or forward, down, down-back, neutral, down-forward. It will make Kazuya dash under the opponent, and unless they DI away, he will turn around and crouch dash cancel crouch. And if the opponent DI’s away, then Kazuya will not crouch dash at all. The down-forward input can be replaced with a jump to do the ToD combo. The combo is good when Kazuya has his back to the ledge and would not want to end the combo early for ledge trapping or edge guarding.

Side Switch DI OS

https://twitter.com/ViedViper/status/1451621280235536389?s=20&t=bdpqBcdjpSQui58qOhPccg

Input is 621(hold)562351; it's also in the video. This is good when the opponent is stuck in the corner and Kazuya does not want to end the combo early for ledge trapping or edge guarding.

Air Dodge OS

https://twitter.com/SchimmyGVO/status/1440082455872999430?s=20&t=O915Un1hyPB5jLoSmr6Rvg

The input is to just do the crouch dash input forward then do the input backwards. This is good against opponents with frame 2 or faster air dodges after a tilt.

Ferps Tech

https://twitter.com/ferpsfgc/status/1493667287911518208

Ferps Tech is used to get tech chases on platforms during combos. This is important to learn as it is the fastest way for Kazuya to get to the platform as his full hop doesn't go high enough.

Loops

Electric LoopsHE GOT LOOPS, TOO?!
Very Hard
EWGF > DI OS > CJab > CJab > EWGF > DI OS > CJab > CJab > EWGF > DI OS > CJab > CJab > EWGF > USmash

Done with mash toggle set to air dodge with random DI in, away, or none.

Can only be started when EWGF hits the opponent when they are on the ground. The dash forward in the video is the Simple DI OS. Other DI OS can be used.

Mizushi Loops (NAir)We gotta ban Steve at this point.
Very Hard

Side B/DGF > Late NAir > repeat

On some characters, doing the ToD is a lot harder than normal. Mizushi loops will help with that.

Mizushi Loops (FAir)Mizushi Loops but better
Very Hard

Side B > Late FAir > repeat

On some characters, doing the ToD is a lot harder than normal. Mizushi loops will help with that.


Other Combos, Frame Traps, and 50/50s

DThrow/DFTilt1/EWGF > Jab

Kazuya can combo DFTilt and DThrow into Jab. DFTilt > Jab is pretty easy. DThrow > Jab is harder and on some characters will require a CDC to make Jab connect. Kazuya can also combo EWGF into Jab by hitting jab before the stun effect ends. Jab 2 is normally +5 on hit (at 0% and can vary depending on opponent's hard landing lag), leaving 3 frames for the opponent to act if Kazuya goes for EWGF afterwards. This means that the opponent can only go for shield or spotdodge to not get hit by EWGF. This makes doing DFTilt/EWGF > Jab 1 2 > grab a 50/50. Either spotdodge the grab or risk waiting to get out of Kazuya’s spotdodge read. A way to beat the opponent spotdodging is to either wait or do DSmash.

Pikachu set to shield:

Pikachu set to spotdodge on first two, last one, set to roll:

When Kazuya has rage. Jab 2 becomes more plus on hit. A lot of the time it can get up to +8 making EWGF > Jab 1 2 > EWGF a true combo. This is useful for bypassing the platform 50/50 which can potentially drop the combo.

Crouch Jab Loops

Crouch Jab gives enough hitstun to combo into itself after a CDC. This combo is very hard up to the point where it is almost only realistic to do on a box controller. Like Jab 1 2 combos, it allows Kazuya to bypass platforms.

Here is a video from Vied Viper on various combos that include Jab 1 2 > EWGF and CJab Loops: https://youtu.be/gCWI7bM_XYc
