Wu Ruixiang demonstrated to have touch-of-death combos in Samurai Shodown by the Combonauts

Samurai Shodown isn't particularly renowned for the combos characters are able to pull off. Instead, most of the meta revolves around spacing and footsies.

This hasn't stopped the Combonauts from producing combo videos. In one of their latest videos, they demonstrated that Wu Ruixiang has access to damage potential that can drain an opponent's entire health bar.

For the most part, Wu Ruixiang is a character that is viewed as one of the game's weaker characters. Why is this when the character can perform touch-of-deaths?

Unfortunately, a number of these combos are somewhat impractical for competitive play. They're mostly cool as a spectacle.

This is because a number of these setups require Wu Ruixiang first setting up a trap directly behind an opponent. Following this, her next attack must push the opponent into the hazard in order to string the hits together.

Regardless, the result is pretty impressive. The idea that a sequence like this happening in competitive play isn't completely impossible.

Also, be sure to check out the Combonauts' recent combo exhibition for Samurai Shodown. Apparently, Wu Ruixiang isn't the only one with 100% combos.
