I. INTRO                                                                 [INTR]
===============================================================================

Welcome to my Dragon ball Raging Blast 2 Intro to Assault Chases & Combos
guide. This is my first attempt at making a guide, and it started out as a
personal list of notes before I made the decision to share. This guide is
designed to help the reader understand some basic concepts in melee fighting
and to encourage experimentation with combo design.

This guide is designed with the XBOX 360 Controller in mind, although, with the
terminology I used, any user should be able to use the guide. If you have
questions or see anything that needs correction, feel free to email me at
kusanagi.clansman@gmail.com.


II. BASICS OF MELEE                                                      [BSML]
===============================================================================

-------------
A. Rush Attacks
-------------

Rush Attacks are a flurry of punches and kicks. These can start or continue
combos.

Rush Attack - X, XX, XXX, XXXX
 - Basic combo starter. You can choose the length and how many hits your Rush
   combos deal.

Full Rush Combo - XXXXX
 - A Full Rush Combo ends a string of Rush Attacks and leaves your enemy open.

---------------
B. Charge Attacks
---------------

Charge Attacks are powerful hits that can knock away your enemy depending on
how long you hold the Rush Attack button. These can start, continue, or end
Rush combos. Charge Attack Level 1 is a strong attack; Charge Attack Level 2 is
a bit more damaging and knocks away a little; Charge Attack Max does even more
damage, knocks the enemy far away, and breaks guard; and Charge Attack Snap
does the most damage, is unblockable, and will always knock the enemy far away.
Hold the Rush Attack button until the game zooms in on your character for Max.
Release the Rush Attack button as soon as your character flashes for the Snap
timing. Holding a direction on the left analog stick gets you a different
Charge Attack.

N Charge Attack - Hold X
 - Neutral, knocks enemy straight away on longer Charges.

U Charge Attack - Hold up and X
 - Knocks enemy up on longer Charges.

D Charge Attack - Hold down and X
 - Knocks enemy downward on longer Charges.

L Charge Attack - Hold left and X
 - Knocks enemy left on longer Charges.

R Charge Attack - Hold right and X
 - Knocks enemy right on longer Charges.

For the rest of this guide, Charge Attack Levels 1 and 2 will be indicated by
just the number, e.g. Charge Attack 1 and Charge Attack 2.

--------------
C. Smash Attacks
--------------

Smash Attacks end Rush combos with attacks that leave your enemy open. Except
for Smash Attack 3, Smash Attacks can be charged. Smash Attack Max does more
damage and breaks guard, and Smash Attack Snap does the most damage and is
unblockable. Hold the Ki Blast button until the game zooms in on your character
for Max. The timing for Smash Attack Snap is the same as Charge Attack Snap.

Smash Attack 1 - XY
 - Reverses enemy.

Smash Attack 2 - XXY
 - Breaks guard. Knocks away a little when charged to Max. Knocks far away when
   charged to Snap.

Smash Attack 3 - XXXY
 - Attacks consecutively.

Smash Attack 4 - XXXXY
 - Powerful blow that stuns.

Smash Attack High - X...up and Y
 - Knocks enemy up.

Smash Attack Low - X...down and Y
 - Trips enemy.

-------
D. Throws
-------

Throws create space between you and your enemy. These can only be countered by
a Throw Evasion and are otherwise unblockable. Throws can start, continue, or
end combos.

Throw - Hold RB and B
 - Grabs enemy before attacking, then knocks far away. Damage and grab range
   are character specific.

-----------
E. Rush Blast
-----------

A Rush Blast is a series of Ki Blasts fired off in quick succession.

Rush Blast - YYYY
 - The number, speed, and strength of Ki Blasts fired in succession depend on
   the character. Ki Blasts can start or continue Rush combos.

----------------
F. Charge Ki Blast
----------------

Charge Ki Blasts do more damage depending on how long you hold the Ki Blast
button. These can start, continue, or end Rush combos. Charge Ki Blast Level 1
is a strong blast, Charge Ki Blast Max does more damage, and Charge Ki Blast
Snap does the most damage and fires the fastest. Hold the Ki Blast button for
about a second for Max. The timing for Charge Ki Blast Snap is the same as
Charge Attack Snap.

For the rest of this guide, Charge Ki Blast Level 1 will be indicated by just
the number, e.g. Charge Ki Blast 1.

-------------
G. Jump Attacks
-------------

Jump Attacks are done by hitting the Jump button while on the ground and
performing a Charge Attack or Ki Blast. These can start or continue combos.

Jump Charge Attack - Jump, X / Hold X
 - Jump Charge Attacks have the same timing and effects as standard Charge
   Attacks.

Jump Ki Blast - Jump, YYYY
 - Jump Ki Blasts have the same limitations as standard Ki Blasts.

Jump Charge Ki Blast - Jump, Hold Y
 - Jump Charge Ki Blasts have the same timing and effects as standard Charge
   Ki Blasts.


III. MELEE EXPANDED                                                      [MLEX]
===============================================================================

---------------------
A. Steps & Step Attacks
---------------------

Steps
---

Steps are situational techniques done before, during, or after attacks and
combos while near your enemy. Steps are performed by quickly tapping a
direction on the left analog stick near your enemy.

Dash-in - Tap up

Backstep - Tap back

Sidestep - Tap left or right

On a basic level, Dash-ins are offensive techniques, while Backsteps and
Sidesteps are defensive.

Step Attacks
----------

Step Attacks are Rush Attacks, Smash Attacks, and Charge Attacks that are done
right after a Step. These are best performed by immediately inputting your
attack right after starting the Step.

Step Rush Attack - Step, immediately hit X, XX, XXX, XXXX, XXXXX

Step Smash Attack - Step, immediately hit Y

Step Charge Attack - Step, immediately Hold X

-----------
B. Signatures
-----------

Signatures are character specific attacks, each having specific properties that
affect your enemy differently. Signatures can start, continue, or end combos,
and you can only use one twice before the combo automatically terminates.

----------------
C. Pursuit Attacks
----------------

Pursuit Attacks are the Homing Dash, Super Dash, and Teleport follow-ups after
attacks that send the enemy flying far away. These attacks are Smash Attack 2
Snap, Charge Attack Max, Charge Attack Snap, some Throws, some Signatures,
Cinematic Combos, and Ping-pong Combos. Pursuit Attacks are done by hitting the
Dash button or Rush button as soon as you send the enemy flying.

Pursuit 1 - A > X / AA > X
 - Homing Dash / Super Dash with Charge Attack Max. You can do Pursuit 1 twice.

Pursuit 2 - X
 - Teleport Charge Attack Max. You can do Pursuit 2 up to three times before
   the combo terminates.

High-Tension Pursuit
 - In High-Tension, a Super Attack is added at the end of two Pursuit 1 and/or
   three Pursuit 2 attacks.

After knocking the enemy far away, you can chain a total of five Pursuit
Attacks - two Pursuit 1 and three Pursuit 2. In High-Tension, hitting the Dash
button after two Pursuit 1 attacks finishes the string with a Super Attack as
your enemy is flying away. Hitting the Rush Attack button after 2 Pursuit 2
attacks ends in a Super Attack as your enemy is flying toward you.

Super Dashing while in Pursuit 1 puts you behind the enemy, and you have the
choice to either continue the Pursuit string or to continue your melee combo.
Continuing the melee combo resets the count for Pursuit Attacks, allowing you
to chain more Pursuits.

--------
D. Cancels
--------

Cancels are used either to extend combos or to escape hairy situations by
cutting out the startup and recovery frames of attacks. There are several types
of Cancels, and not all characters have the same types. When any Cancel is
performed successfully, a yellow bolt of lightning will flash across the
screen. If you attempt the same Cancel a second time, or if you don't have
enough ki for what you want to Cancel into, a red bolt of lightning will flash
across the screen, which means the Cancel was unsuccessful. In other words, you
can't do the same Cancel twice in a single combo.

For the sake of understanding concepts, it helps to look at Cancels as
Offensive Cancels and Defensive Cancels.

Offensive Cancels
---------------

Dash-in Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts,
   Jump Attacks, and some Signatures by performing a Dash-in.

Rush Attack Cancel
 - Cancel Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts, and Jump Charge
   Attacks by starting a Rush Attack.

Charge Attack Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts, and Jump Charge
   Attacks by performing a Charge Attack.

Ki Blast Cancel
 - Cancel Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Jump Charge Attacks, and some
   Signatures by shooting a Ki Blast.

Charge Ki Blast Cancel
 - Cancel Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, and some Signatures by charging or
   shooting a Charge Ki Blast.

Signature Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Throws, Charge Ki
   Blasts, and Jump Charge Ki Blasts by performing a Signature.

Super Attack Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Throws, Charge Ki
   Blasts, and Super Risings by performing a Super Attack.

Ultimate Attack Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Throws, Charge Ki
   Blasts, and Super Risings by performing an Ultimate Attack.

Defensive Cancels
---------------

Guard Cancel
 - Cancel Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts, Signatures, Homing
   Dashes, Super Dashes, and Super Risings by hitting the Block button.

Sidestep Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts,
   Jump Attacks, and some Signatures by Sidestepping.

Backstep Cancel
 - Cancel Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts,
   Jump Attacks, and some Signatures by Backstepping.

Jump Cancel
 - Cancel Rush Attacks, Full Rush Combos, Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, and
   Charge Ki Blasts by hitting the Jump button.

Super Rising Cancel
 - Cancel Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, Charge Ki Blasts, Signatures, Homing
   Dashes, and Super Dashes by Super Rising.

Ki Charge Cancel
 - Cancel Charge Attacks, Smash Attacks, and Charge Ki Blasts by hitting the
   Ki Charge button.

--------------
E. Assault Chase
--------------

Assault Chase is a new way to pursue your enemy and continue your melee combos.
An Assault Chase is done by hitting some combination of the Rush Attack, Ki
Blast, Signature, or Dash buttons after a Charge Attack 2, and the Ki or Dash
button after a Full Rush Combo or a Smash Attack. Each button typically leads
to a different Assault Chase combo, and there are different combinations for
Assault Chases. Every Assault Chase combo ends in a Charge Attack 2 or a
Cinematic Combo. Additional Assault Chase combos can be linked only after a
previous one has ended with a Charge Attack 2.

For the sake of understanding concepts, it helps to look at Assault Chases as
Charge Attack 2 Assault Chases and Smash Attack Assault Chases.

Charge Attack 2 Assault Chase
---------------------------

Charge Attack 2 > X/Y/A/B
 - Charge Attack 2 can link into an Assault Chase mapped to the Rush Attack,
   Ki Blast, Signature, or Dash button.

Smash Attack Assault Chase
------------------------

Smash Attack > Y/A
 - Smash Attacks chain into an Assault Chase which then can link into the
   Assault Chases on the Rush Attack, Ki Blast, Signature, or Dash button.
   However, unlike Charge Attack 2, each Smash Attack yields a different
   Assault Chase and can lead into a Cinematic Combo.

You can follow-up with an Assault Chase for up to three attacks. An Assault
Chase combo can have one or more parts. Each part counts as one attack. If you
perform a two-part Assault Chase combo and then a three-part one, you will see
both parts of the first combo complete and only the first part of the second
combo. For example, we'll look at Base Fighting Trunks' Charge Attack 2 Assault
Chase combos:

X (Smash Attack 4) > Y (Smash Attack 2 Max) > Y (Cinematic Combo)

Y (Charge Attack 2)

B (Smash Attack Low) > Y (Smash Attack 3) > Y (L Charge Attack 2)

A (Smash Attack 1) > Y (U Charge Attack 2)

When we perform any Charge Attack 2, we can follow-up with any of these Assault
Chase combos in the three-part window. If we go with Y, we would use one part
of the Assault Chase window and have two parts remaining. If we follow that
with B, the Assault Chase window would end at the second part of the second
Assault Chase combo (Y) because all three parts have been used.

If an Assault Chase combo ends in a Cinematic Combo, it has to reach its end by
the time the three-part Assault Chase window is finished in order to go into
the Cinematic Combo. In Fighting Trunks' case, if we used U Charge Attack 2, we
would follow-up with X Y Y to get to the Cinematic Combo. If we instead
followed-up U Charge Attack 2 with A Y and then tried to input the Assault
Chase combo that ends in the Cinematic Combo (X Y Y), the Assault Chase window
would end at the first part of it (X) and we wouldn't see the Cinematic Combo.


IV. ADVANCED MELEE                                                       [AVML]
===============================================================================

--------------------
A. Putting It Together
--------------------

Raging Blast 2's melee system has some basic principles behind making combos.
There are limitations on the number of attacks and strings allowed in a single
combo before it automatically terminates. For example, you can do a Smash
Attack 3 twice in your combo, and after the second time, the combo will
automatically terminate, signified by the enemy spiraling away (this does not
necessarily mean the entire combo is over; only the melee portion). However, if
you use Smash Attack 3 once, you still can use other Smash Attacks to continue
your combo. Consider the attack types and their number of allowed uses:

	1. Rush Attack - No limit.
	2. Charge Attacks - Each attack can be done twice.
	3. Smash Attack - Each of the four strings can be done twice.
	4. Rush Blast - No limit.
	5. Charge Ki Blast - No limit.
	6. Signature - Can be done twice.
	7. Pursuit - Pursuit 1 can be done twice. Pursuit 2 can be done three
           times.
	8. Assault Chase - Each Assault Chase attack can be done twice.

With the exceptions of Rush Attack, Rush Blast, and Charge Ki Blast, any
attacks and strings in each of these attack types can be repeated a certain
amount of times before the combo automatically terminates.

Due to the limitation on the number of attacks and strings, there is a direct
limitation on the number of times an attack type can be used. For example, a
Charge Attack 1 can be done up to two times before automatic termination. Going
by this logic, if we start a combo with R Charge Attack 1, follow with Smash
Attack 4, and perform a second R Charge Attack 1, the melee portion of the
combo will automatically terminate. However, if we decided to follow Smash
Attack 4 with a U Charge Attack 1 instead, we would have been able to continue
the combo. Expanding on that, we can have a combo that uses each of the five
Charge Attack 2 types at least once and still continue the combo. And, since a
combo automatically terminates when an attack type has reached it maximum
number of uses, if we use R Charge Attack 2 again, we should expect the combo
to automatically terminate. Taking all of this into consideration, we know why
Smash Attack 4 > Smash Attack 1 > Smash Attack 2 > Smash Attack 4 works, and
why D Charge Attack > Smash Attack 4 > D Charge Attack> D Charge Attack
can't work.

Assault Chase attacks have properties of Charge Attack 2 and Smash Attacks.
Using the concepts from above, Assault Chases with properties of an attack type
will add to that attack type's number of uses when performed in a single combo.
For example, Kid Gohan's Smash Attack 1 Assault Chase is XY (Smash Attack 1) >
Y (U Charge Attack 2). So far, Smash Attack 1 and U Charge Attack 2 have been
used. If we perform another Smash Attack 1 or U Charge Attack 2, the melee
portion of the combo will automatically terminate.

Finally, performing a Cancel in a single combo resets the three-part window in
Assault Chase, which in turn allows you to chain additional Assault Chase
combos, as long as you haven't done the same attack twice.

------------
B. Raging Soul
------------

Raging Soul is a state that allows you to chain together more Assault Chases
than usual. In other words, the three-part limit on Assault Chases is gone, and
you can chain together as many as you wish, as long as you don't repeat any
attacks.

In Raging Soul, if you perform an Assault Chase combo that ends in a Cinematic
Combo that normally wouldn't fit inside the three-part window before, you will
see your enemy getting hit around in a Ping-pong Combo instead of the Cinematic
Combo. For example, we'll look at SS Teen Gohan's Charge Attack 2 Assault Chase
combo that ends in a Cinematic Combo, X Y Y. If we chain into this Assault
Chase combo from U Charge Attack 2 > Y while in Raging Soul, we would see the
combo end in a Ping-pong Combo. The input would be as follows:

	1. U Charge Attack 2 - Charge Attack 2
	2. Y - chain into 1st Assault Chase
	3. X Y Y - 2nd Assault Chase combo

Outside of Raging Soul, this wouldn't work. The Assault Chase window would have
ended on the second part of the second Assault Chase combo. However, with no
three-part limit, the Assault Chase would continue into the Ping-pong Combo.


V. ASSAULT TYPES                                                         [ASLT]
===============================================================================

The Assault Type determines the Full Rush Assualt Chase combos, Charge Attack 2
Assault Chase combos, and Smash Attack Assault Chase combos for all characters.
Assault Chase combos can only be chained after a previous one is finished with
a Charge Attack 2. Any Assault Chase combos longer than three parts can only be
completed while in Raging Soul. Here are the Assault Types with the characters
that share them, all with completed Assault Chase combos.
