- Basic part:
- Platinum's basic combo theory is the following
- at short ranges, where 5AA5B connects, it is possible to do various meterless solo combos
- any longer at that, you will need to expend resources (either an assist or meter) to get a full combo
- Starting first off, meterless solo combos:
- Easiest combo to learn is called the "standing j.b loop". This combo is nice because it fully consists out of jump cancelable moves, so you have plenty of leeway to bait a burst.
- Damage: 5967.
- Inputs: (basically hold forward during all of this) 5AA5BBB>jc>delay>j.b>5A5BBB>delay>5AAA>236A

- For a slight bit more corner carry and damage in exchange for worse midscreen oki you can replace the modify the last part of the combo, ending up with
- Damage: 6004
- Inputs: 5AA5BBB>jc>delay>j.b>5AA5BBB>jc>delay>j.b>5AA>236A

- For more damage there is the "bomb loop" combo. beware that the opponent gets the burst for free the moment they see the bomb come out so have an assist ready.
- Damage: 6427
- Inputs:5AA5B>slight delay>jc>delay>j.b(3 hits)>j.a>j.214A>microdash>5AA5B>slight delay>jc>delay>j.b(4 hits)>5AA>236A
- Combo troubleshooting: if the 5A after the first j.b whiffs, your j.b only did 2 hits or you did your microdash wrong. if the 5AA after the first j.b whiffs, you probably did 4 hits with the j.b)

- For better midscreen oki its better to only do one loop of the bomb loop, its also easier to do.
- Damage: 6165
- Inputs: 5AA5B>slight delay>jc>delay>j.b(4 hits)>j.a>j.214A>5AAA>236A

- If you start in the corner you will need to adjust the route a bit:
- Damage: 6425
- Inputs: 5AA5B>slight delay>jc>delay>j.b(4 hits)>j.a>j.214A>microdash>5BBB>delay>5AAA>236A

- 1 bar combos:
- Using ex mami you can get a ton of corner carry and a full combo off max range 5AAA:

- In the corner you can use EX missile instead for a bit more damage and more red health damage (ex mami is currently bugged and does not do full red health dmg)
- Damage: 6853
- 5AAA>delay (wait for platinum to "sink" into the ground)>214C>5AA5BBB>jc>delay>j.b>5AA>236A

- If you have nothing better to do with the meter you can keep dumping meter into more missiles and get more damage (generally not worth it)
- Max damage: 8472

- Assist combos:
- Pretty similar to the EX mami combos.
- Note that by delaying the assist call till the last moment after 236A it becomes impossible to react burst to the assist call without platinum being able to block it
- For better oki midscreen you can do the following.
- Damage: varies
- Inputs: 5AAA>236A>delay>suitable assist call>runup>5BBB>delay>5AAA>236A

- As with the other situations, you can trade midscreen oki for damage.
- Note that this wont work if you start too close to the corner
- Damage: varies + 300
- Inputs: 5AAA>236A>delay>suitable assist call>runup>5AA5B>slight delay>jc>delay>j.b(4 hits)>5AA>236A
