Instant Kill Evade
  • Any special move that ends with Arcade-Stick-Right.png can be modified with a dash by replacing the final Arcade-Stick-Right.png with Arcade-Stick-Right.pngArcade-Stick-Right.png. So, for example, the move with Arcade-Stick-Qcf.png + GG-Button-Punch.png input can be dash-modified to become Arcade-Stick-Qcf.pngArcade-Stick-Right.png + GG-Button-Punch.png.
  • One of any fighter's special moves (with the exception of Axl Low, Testament and Justice) can be charged. Depending on the level of the Charge gauge, that fighter's attacks become more powerful.
  • Chaos Attacks are attacks which can be performed either either by completing the Chaos Gauge, or by tapping into the Chaos Mode. Fighters automatically enter Chaos Mode when their health reaches the half-way point (when their green health bar is fully-depleted). The fighter is then surrounded by a red aura and has the ability to perform an unlimited amount of Chaos Attacks.
  • There is a way to defeat your opponent in the entire battle. These are called Instant Kill. Initiate one by pressing GG-Button-Punch.png + GG-Button-Kick.png when your fighter is close to the opponent. The background will turn red. Press Arcade-Stick-Qcf.png + GG-Button-Punch.png or GG-Button-Kick.png or GG-Button-Slash.png or GG-Button-Heavy Slash.png or Arcade-Button-Start.png or GG-Button-Respect.png and your fighter will perform their respective Instant Kill. Press Arcade-Stick-Qcb.png + GG-Button-Punch.png or GG-Button-Kick.png or GG-Button-Slash.png or GG-Button-Heavy Slash.png or Arcade-Button-Start.png or GG-Button-Respect.png when the opponent tries to perform their own Destroy attack to counter. Alternatively, entering the Arcade-Stick-Qcf.png + GG-Button-Punch.png or GG-Button-Kick.png or GG-Button-Slash.png or GG-Button-Heavy Slash.png or Arcade-Button-Start.png or GG-Button-Respect.png input after the screen turns red before an opponent does so, your fighter will get the attack instead of them.
