Black Canary's combo list will be very complicated for some just trying to get into her. So i will try my best to post the best combos with little restraint as some of her harder MOST OPTIMAL stuff is usually not worth 1-2% for the chance of you dropping the combo. Keep in mind she can either go for damage, or setup. So each section will be split into combos depending on if you want damage or setup ender. Hopefully you guys enjoy and if you find better things please lmk and i will update the OP if the consensus is that it is much better than the ones originally posted.



PLEASE READ: For her setups, you can end in either 112,1+3 for +25 on knockdown mix up game or 3,3 Front Handspring for +12. The difference is that with 3,3 you have more options since you can do B1 Canary Drop(50/50 guess), F2(plus on block overhead HDK), or JI2 into CD(50/50 guess). The choice is yours

Why is that?
You're like, +25(99% sure thats what the game has it as) ending in 112 1+3, so even if it throws them out of the corner you can actually do a ton with a setup. Pretty sure its more than +25 too after messing with it and then frontflipping. Both strings are hard knockdowns. Also pretty sure 112 1+3 does the most damage out of all her strings. Also easy enough to connect in a combo midscreen.

I think 113 is +30 or +35, and that's just a hard knockdown that doesn't switch sides with solid dmg. Cant really think of much reason to do anything else as an ender over these 2, outside of specific setups/canary drop stuff.

How are you connecting b3 after 2u3? I used to be able to do it in the beta but not now.
 
How are you supposed to deal with heavy zoners with her? Her flip seems to have a pretty small window where it will go through projectiles and if they throw another one out after you're not gonna get a second flip out in time. Is there something I'm missing or is this just her life?

When you have lvl 3 trait they cant regularly throw projectiles anymore, so I just walk in until I hit them or am confident I'll hit with trait. There's literally nothing wrong just sitting there and blocking until you have lvl 3, and then holding on to it for as long as you need, because once she has it shes by far the strongest character in the game imo.

Unless they're deadshot, in which case he recovers in time to shot you out of your canary cry, (or trade in which case you don't have enough time to dash in for the combo anyways).
 
If you want the most damage (setups be damned) end your combo with df3u3. It's the forward flip into the upward kick. It looks like it won't connect but it does and it combos off of just about every normal combo attack.

Take a look at this. Don't pay attention to the set numbers this was his early Darkseid. He still was zoning me though so you can try and use this as a basis or understanding of how to approach zoning

It's stylish. I like working DF3U3 into combos. Setups be damned.

Why are you guys ending with 33~ Bf2 instead of 21?

Why not just cartwheel --->B3 after level 3 trait cancels?

There's easy damage you guys are missing here
i already do handspring b3 combos. My personal bnbs are as follows:

damage:Starter xx lvl 3 trait xx handspring b3, j2, 3,3, bf2

why? It pushes them to the corner and does upwards to 50% damage on certain characters and 47% at lowest iirc

setup:starter xx lvl 3 trait handspring, f13 xx canary drop reset
OR
Starter xx lvl 3 trait handspring, j2,d3 > canary drop
 
Opponent in the corner

21 BF2MB J2 2U3 D2~DF3U3 33 trait.

More damage than doing 2U3 twice. But more difficult timing.
