Encyclopedia > Combo (fighting)

A combo (short for combination) is a concept regarding fighting games and fighting in general. It indicates a sequence of moves which produce an unblockable series of hits. It takes an initial direct hit for the combo to begin. The first hit is then followed by other hits, which leave the opponent no time for blocking.
