Street Fighter 5's Menat has some very versatile tools at her disposal. Her ability to send out her crystal ball, place it on screen, and call it back whenever makes for some interesting and powerful set ups, pressure, and abilities.

Things are taken up a notch when Menat's V-Trigger 1 comes into play. With the ability to fire off six different orbs at different heights whenever she chooses, this V-Trigger is the Trigger of choice for most Menat players.

During a recent stream, one of the Japanese gods of Street Fighter, Scarz|Sako, showcased a hard-hitting set up using Menat's V-Trigger 1 and a regular throw. If done correctly, Menat can actually confirm into a full combo from the throw.

In order to pull this off, you'll need to have Menat's crystal ball placed behind the opponent and V-Trigger 1 already active. As Sako demonstrates, you can throw the opponent toward the sphere and juggle with the two light orbs from VT1.

Call the crystal ball back to continue the juggle, and from there you can resend out the sphere twice in conjunction with the remainder of the V-Trigger 1 orbs, using Soul Spark for continued juggles and call back.

As we see in the clip below, Sako ends the sequence with a Critical Art, which helps to tack on damage. The full combo does 513 damage.
