db...     diagonals (db,df,uf,ub); again, hold if capitalized

,         move separator 
FC        execute from crouching position
OTB       'on the bounce', opponent is hit after he bounces from the ground

As usual, damage is standardized to Wolf's giant swing being 100 points.
A combo requires 200 damage points to drain the whole lifebar. Some of the
combos requires dashes / crouch dashes for the respective move to connect;
I didn't list those places but you should be able to find out by yourself :)
