LORD RAIDEN HAS ARRIVED


Raiden is finally officially out for Ultimate Edition and Fighter Pack 2 holders, and to make your Thunder God play as good as it can be, start out strong with this combo thread! Courtesty of Microsoft for letting some of us play Raiden early

Notes
  • All combos were performed on Competitive Mode Superman. Please do your combos on Supes as well.
  • 'xx' means you're canceling a special move into something. For instance, F3xxDB2 means canceling F3 into DB2, while F3 means finishing the full F3, then doing DB2.
  • DF2 is Shocker. Use DF2 MB if you want to be safe-ish (-8 on block) while not wasting meter if it gets blocked (MB only comes out on hit).
  • DB2 is Vicinity Burst. Use DB2 MB to combo if you want to be fully safe (-2 on block) and get max damage, but you waste a bar of meter if you get blocked.
  • Meterless DB2 shocks the opponent with trait on for a B3 combo.
  • DB1 is Lightning Bolt. Use DB1 MB to combo for max damage off of specific strings (F12, 21, F21). It is also +2 on block, however, it has a large gap if it gets blocked.
    • The strings 11, F12, 21, F21, S3 connect into DB1 MB for max damage (and a couple specific normals like S2).
  • '6f' means 6 frames of startup on the move.

IMPORTANT SETUPS AND MIXUPS
All caps, bold, in italics and underlined because this is some pretty important stuff and will be expanded as Raiden tech is found

Corner Lightning Orb setup
  • Found by: @Red Raptor
  • F12/11/21/F21 xx DB1 MB, 4, F123xxDB2, F3, 113, DB1 MB.
    • This setup places an orb right on top of the opponent. If they wake up you can just block and they will get hit by the orb. If they don't wake up they have to block the orb, which leaves you quite plus.
    • Details in Raptor's video:
Orb-on-wakeup combos
  • If the orb hits: Orb, F3, 3xxDB2, F123xxBF3 - 364.98
    • This assumes trait has run out before the DB2 hits.
Orb-behind-the-opponent combos
  • Coming soon.

Up rock incoming, ETA 5 minutes
Don't know if it's known and don't care but thanks to the AI I found that you can combo off of F2B3 and 3B3 in the corner without trait buff using d1, d2 and f1. The juggle is very similar with both but F2B3 seems like a slightly lower juggle and it has a bigger gap before B3. So something like:

F2B3, F12, F12, F123~Superman (226)

3B3, F12, F12, F123~Superman (259)

3B3, F12~DB2, F123~Superman (274)

3B3, F12~DB2, F123~Superman (274)
In some situations you can also use 3B3 as a combo extender in the corner, although most of the time 3xxDB2 is better. There's a specific combo that used both 3xxDB2 and 3B3, I'll see if I can find it and put it here.

Is it just me or is F12B2, F12, DB2, F123, BF3 in the corner an insanely tight link between DB2 and F123? I've not managed to land it once, whereas I've had some success with doing three F123's.

Know that F12B2 on hit recovers really quickly, which means you have to do F12xxDB2 sooner than you may be used to. Practice makes perfect.

Also depends from person to person really, I find the three F123s to be very difficult while that F12B2 combo isn't that tight for me.

Your hole is mine!
Will post my trait combos later, I'm pretty sure I've optimised his midscreen and corner damage while in trait and if not its very close.

My mates robbed my controller so I can't even test them until later -.-

Sorry about that. Without the j2 it does 430

W/trait

3f3,21,21xdb2,f3,j3xsuperman: 430 dmg

There's also

3f3,21,21xdb2,f3,f123,xsuperman: 418dmg

But the f123xsuperman drops a lot

More Ass and Tits for MK11
I'll go have a check of the damage when I get home, but traited corner combo I found for 1 bar:

MBf3, 3xxdb2, very delayed j3, f12b2, f123xxdf2/bf3.

I'm also very sure you can sneak in another db2 after the f12b2 or after the 3xxdb2, it did near 500 damage if I recall.

Any f3 starter in the corner can connect a s3xxdb2 instantly after the f3 launch withou trait, haven't tried it mid-screen.

Updated the combo thead:
  • Better formatting so you don't have to scroll through a billion lines of text. Distinguishes between midscreen/corner/trait/no-trait/meterless/1-bar have been separated by use of spoiler tags.
  • Second post that I reserved has been updated with @Red Raptor 's video detailing a corner setup for the Lightning Orb in trait. Err...I haven't actually asked Raptor permission for this so Raptor if you're reading this tell me whether your tech can stay in this thread.
Still gotta update several parts of the combo threads and I'll get on that soon. I'll also see if I can add some of the combos listed in this thread to the OP.

I don't mind, it's a pretty standard setup. Great thread btw
