i recently made a post about it, but put the wrong link, here i will copy and paste it with the right link....
dante can be a hard charector to use but i recently learned of dantes "empty" cancel. basicly it lets dante cancel into nuetral potition, allowing him to use looong combos. a good example is dantes squareX3 on the third it ends with a recoil. and combos over, but using his empty cancel allows him to use the square combo, up to 5 times withought the opponent able to kove or attack. not only that but he can combo INTO his lvl one super. do as followed.
simple empty cancel (for beginners).
-------------square square sqaure, up triangle, neutral circle, begin again.
you MUST do the up triangle neutral circle, very fast. but it allows for more combo's that simple, will NOT combo into super.
(note this works on ALMOST all charectors, the only ones i found it to not work on, is nariko and hiahachi.)
BOLD empty cancel.
this is much harder to do. but allows you to combo INTO lvl 1 and lvl 2 super
basic,y do as followed
(facing right) squareX3 (cancel follows) up traingle, away circle (push AWAY from the opponent) toward square,(cancel ends) begin again.
click this link for more info. bold empty cancel is hard to explain but similar to the simple version.
bold is really hard to do, but i personally can land it (facing rignt) 9/10 times. dont worry, you will get the hang of it
its actually bold cancel, he mispelled
