Board 8 Wiki


It is customary for Board 8ers to interrupt a continuous stream of identical or nearly identical posts with their own post that simply reads C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER. It is almost always in all caps, and often in bold. The use of C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER is not exclusive to Board 8.


In the Arcade fighter Killer Instinct, a player could interrupt an opponent's combo. When this was done, an in-game voice would announce in a deep booming voice, "Combo breaker." The consonant "c" sound was echoed before the rest of the word was pronounced.

The origin of the term's usage on the internet is unknown by article creator.
