    OK, here is everything you need to know to do this achievement.

    Ultra Combos can only be performed when your opponent has a flashing red health bar, you have a flashing yellow meter and you are at least one hit into a combo. Their second health bar is red, and it will flash when at 15-20%. Your yellow meter will fill fastest when you're taunting or blocking. You need to perform one move before you initiate the ULTRA combo.

    Here's a walkthrough with Sabrewulf since I learned how to play that character while trying another person's lousy advice.

    Go to Arcade mode with 2 controllers. Choose Sabrewulf for player one. Once in arcade mode, you have 99 seconds to deplete your opponent's life to a flashing red bar. At this point, use the combo cn_left, cn_right + cn_X with Sabrewulf. This is his taunt, it will fill his meter until it's yellow and flashing.

    Once the conditions are set, use the combo cn_left, cn_right + cn_Y, this will initiate a combo that looks like a cartwheel. Quickly enter the Ultra Combo NOW, (HOLD) cn_left, cn_right + cn_A. If done correctly, it will show a cutscene and you will get an ULTRAAAAAA COOMBOOOOOOO!!

    You can practice the sequence cn_left, cn_right + cn_Y, (HOLD) cn_left, cn_right + cn_A while depleting your opponent's health bar. If entered correctly, Sabrewulf should do a cartwheel, then do a yelp/howl or something.

    Congrats on your achievement.

    Before criticizing other people, I would make sure my guide was right first...

    Movie MarioYou need to add to your solution that it's not simply pressing back, but charging (slightly holding) back that makes the combo work. I'll thumbs up when you edit it

    planchetflawAbsolutely no need for a yellow flashing bar. Glad you edited in the hold back part.

    Go into options and change "Quick kick" to cn_RB(I only suggest that because it is how I have it setup)

    Go into Arcade with a second controller and select Sabrewolf, since his combo is far easier than anyone else's.

    When the opponent's health is flashing red quickly hit:
    cn_left cn_right + cn_Y, hold cn_left, hit cn_RB, cn_right+cn_RB

    That will do the Ultra every time

    The condition for an Ultra Combo is a red glimming life bar and a combo opener. I have chosen Jagos Double Kick as opener. The Input for this Kick: cn_right+FK
    During this Kick you have to input his Ultra Combo.
    Legend: FK = Fierce Kick, QK = Quick Kick
    Jagos Ultra Combo has the following Input: cn_downrightcn_downcn_downleft + QK
    So the full combination = cn_right+FK, cn_downrightcn_downcn_downleft + QK

    Useful hint from Sambaweb: FK and QK are the buttonscn_RT and cn_A in standard configuration

    TwobbyI just thought I'd say this is less touchy compared to Sabrewulf. I was able to do Jago with no problems and you don't have to get your combo bar full.

    steven2furiousGreat guide i could never gey sabrewolf to do a cartwheel
