Desk makes Rose look like a combo monster even without using Soul Illusion but oh boy does he have a field day once he does activate V-Trigger

That's some tech overload right there

Despite Rose never really being much of a combo character before, Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is certainly looking to change that, and we know just the guy to showcase what's possible now.

Master combo composer Desk released a video dedicated to the returning fortune teller, and he does not disappoint with what he was able to uncover — even without using her Soul Illusion V-Trigger 2.

Things kick off quickly with Desk managing to land two EX Soul Punishes, two Soul Sparks (one in the air and one on the ground), and a Soul Bind off of a single Crush Counter.

Rose's first V-Trigger gets a lot of love in the first half of the video too with burning both teleports in one go and continuing the combo by hitting G in the air behind him.

I also learned watching this that Rose can apparently combo into her air Soul Spark close to the ground and then continue a string afterwards.

Soul Illusion is where the real limiters come off, however, and perhaps the most impressive combo to me here is Desk managing to keep Cammy in a juggle state for 8 seconds where he's able to side switch on her like three different times using slides and air-to-airs to stop her from ever touching the ground again.
