I know it's easy to rant abouthow bad Emperor Kahn is, but let's give him a chance hear, shall we? One thing that makes me thirst after him following the recent buffs is how strong his combo game is. I really want to up my combo game with him properly, but have no idea where to start. Any ideas?

Sweet, sweet. Do any of these have a Krushing blow? 

I used to get the crushing blow with this combo:  setup, (d, dL2) like they advised below, 2 in jump, 4 in standing, DB+3 (here is the sweet skull crushing), 1, 4, 1, BF+3, 4, DB+3 amplified. This one just takes the half of the health bar

Unfortunately, no. They are very damaging though

Okay, so start with f2, 1 - this will be the base for most of the best Kahn's combos. then you can go:

- bf3, > meter - f2, 1, bf3, meter -1, 2, db3 - this one is real ez and good for wall carry

- bf3, > meter - 2, 3, db1, meter, 2, 3, db1. Again, simple steps, repeat twice. This one will carry them to the wall, but will end up throwing them the other way. Careful with using against characters with strong wall play
bf3, > meter - 4, db1, meter - 4, db1

These begin with (d,dL2)and then can go like:

- 2, 1, db1, meter - 4, db1

- f2,1,bf3, meter - 2, 3, db1, meter - 4, db1

These are the ones I know and use frequently

DD+1, bf+3 MB, J+2, 2, 3, DB+3, -> (hold), 1, DB+3

2,1, bf+3>MB - 1, 4, DB+1>MB - 1 DB+3

To be honest, I don't think Kahn deserves all the bad rap he has been getting lately. On release - yes, they hyped him up as an exclusive preorder-only char, and he sucked. Now, however he can be pretty viable. Take Titaniutigerzzz, for example. He made it to the Top 8 with Kahn once and showed some great work, just check it out

Is that me or Kahn's standing 1 is actually good for corner game? The man just launches them near the corner and just presses X to hold them in the air
