A Combo is a special attack that is performed by pressing a number of buttons rapidly in a certain sequence. Combos are usually more damaging than regular attacks.

Combo attack

A Combo being used in Castle Crashers. The Conehead character is performing the combo.

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 3 consecutive light hit animations is what you need before you should start hitting the heavy attack button (Y).]
