NinjaMonkey Showcases Ryu Hayabusa Touch of Death Combos and Unholdable Resets in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

Ryu Hayabusa has always been a strong character in the Dead or Alive series and his Dead pr Alive 5 Ultimate incarnation is no exception. To showcase this, NinjaMonkey has put together a combo video for the ninja that showcases not just regular combos, but guaranteed kill combos that do over 450 damage.

Additionally, some of the combos showcase the return of a feature from previous games in the 1.07 patch – unholdables. This technique is performed by using an attack that had its active frames land during the first frame of an opponents wakeup after a tech roll. Since counter-holding (and side-stepping) requires at least one frame to execute, trying to do so results in getting hit.

That said, the fact that these need a tech roll means that the combos with unholdables aren’t true touch of death strings since they require a reset using the unholdables.
