The Dan infinite combo is one of the most difficult moves to master in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.
Requiring perfect frame execution, it is mostly done in training mode or online ranked matches by high-level players.
It was therefore amazing to see Taiwanese SFV: CE pro Arubi “RB” Kao pull off this extremely difficult move for the first time in an official Capcom Pro Tour match.
During the Losers Round 1 elimination match, RB used the Dan infinite combo against tournament favorite Li-Wei “Oil King” Lin to win the first game in the best-of-five set.
What is the Dan infinite combo?
When Dan Hibiki was released by Capcom last February as a DLC character for Season V, fans saw him as a low-tier character.
That all changed when SFV: CE combo expert Desk released a video that showed Dan performing an infinite loop combo a few days after the character dropped.
How to do the Dan infinite combo
The Dan infinite combo requires pixel-perfect execution, while your opponent is stuck in the corner.
C. HP (Crouching Heavy Punch) > (QCF.LP) Light Fireball, C. HP > QCF.LP > S.HP (Standing Heavy Punch) > V-Skill II > C.HP > QCF.LP (repeat)
Remember, you must be +11 frames before you start the first input, and you’re going to want to use V-Skill II to lessen the chances of input mistakes. The Dan infinite combo works against all characters, including those that have large and small character models.
