Ultra Combo

105pages on
this wiki

An Ultra Combo is a special finisher where a combatant performs a long string of combos before ending the fight in a KO (or Knockout).


All the KI characters can perform ultra combos as long as the player continues to keep mashing the attack buttons. After a long string of combos, the character will automatically perform a special move before ending the combo with a launching attack (i.e. Jago's uppercut) and knocking the opponent down. The average hits all ultra combo moves make could last up to 40 hits. Even though the ultra combo move ended, skilled players can continue stringing combos, sometimes lasting up to a 80 hit combo.

In the XBOX One version, an Ultra Combo is always preset at a specific value and the player cannot add hits to it. However, a player can now use their Instinct Mode (if they have one ready) to cancel the Ultra Combo allowing players to extend the Ultra Combo into another series of combos which can ultimately lead to another Ultra Combo. In addition, Ultra Combos gives the player a full bar to use for two Shadow Moves each time an Ultra Combo is performed extending it even further to upwards of 100 hits. Finally, if a player wants to simply end the match without going through the sequence, Ultra Combos can be ended prematurely into a powerful Ultra Ender but can be tagged on at the end of Ultra Combo strings for even more variety for Ultra Combos.
