List of Combos

Note: These combos are actually how many times you need to hit the enemy not necessarily how many times you press the buttons. For instance, with the X X X Y Y combo you can actually rapidly hit the light attack button X 4 to 5 times in the time it takes to do 3 animations, so actually performing three consecutive light hit animations is what you need before you should start hitting the heavy attack button Y.
