While everyone loves a flashy combo video, you sometimes just want pure optimization. In the spirit of the refined Ms. Kanzuki, HitBox Sora has compiled a list of Karin’s most damaging and optimal combos, collected from tournaments throughout 2016. These 10 combos are designed to be as powerful as possible, and very hard to drop in a high-pressure environment. If you are looking to main Karin, these are the combos you should go about learning ahead of all else.
This list is by no means exhaustive and you should try to learn as many combos as possible, but this selection is designed to be as reliable as can be, so prioritize memorizing these inputs first before you start getting creative. As the name suggests, all of these combos are performed on a HitBox controller, but Sora has left the notation on screen so you can replicate these sequences, no matter your input method.
