This guide uses the numeric notation, where numbers are used to represent directions, and letters used to represent buttons.|
All inputs are listed assuming you are facing right. As a shortcut, look at your numpad, the numbers are the same as that.

360A - Roll a 360, then hit Light Punch.
720P - Roll a 720, then hit either Punch.
Normals in the Guide are listed only if they are particularly noteworthy, and thus some are not mentioned because they aren't worth writing about.
Every character has the following normals whether they are listed or not:
5A, 2A, 5B, 2B, 5C, 2C, 5D, 2D, j.A, j.B, j.C, j.D
Many characters have a distinction between their Close and Far version of their 5C normal. When this is the case, both will be listed and distinguished as:
About Specials and Supers
Special moves that are listed with notation such as A/C have distinctions between their light and heavy versions.
Special moves that are listed with notation such as P have no distinctions between their light and heavy versions.
Moves written such as 6A signify charge moves. To do these moves, briefly hold 4, then press 6 and A.
All Supers require 1 MP bar to do and have their own section.
Distinctions Between Types of Combos
· Combos listed under Basic are general purpose combos you can use in normal situations.
· Combos listed under Gatchi Counter refer to comboing after a regular Gatchi. The word G-Counter will appear for these.
· Combos listed under High Gatchi Drive or Low Gatchi Drive refer to combos that can be done off of those moves (6+Gatchi or 3+Gatchi).
· Combos listed under Heat Up are combos that either must be done while in Heat Up, or must involve the use of Heat Up.
Note that combos for either kind of Gatchi Drive will not explicitly mention the HGD or LGD, it is simply inferred that all combos in these sections start with them.
Heat Up Combos as well assume that you are in Heat Up already and will not explicitly mention the fact. If a combo requires you to Heat Up mid-combo, it will make specific note of this.
Reading an Example Combo
The following is an example Low Gatchi Drive combo for Cedric. It can only be done during a Low Gatchi Drive, and it is character specific. See Cedric's section for a full explanation of the combo.
(0 Near Corner)
j.C |> 2B 5C 5D 8B/D, 8B/D
(0 Near Corner) - Signifies this combo costs 0 meters to do, and must be done when near the corner.
[1100+] - Signifies this combo will does 1100 damage, or more, to Urs. It may do more or less to other characters.
j.C |> - Do a Jumping Heavy Punch, then land on the ground.
2B 5C 5D - Directly chain cancel 2B into 5C, then 5C into 5D.
5D 8B/D - After chaining into 5D, you must begin charging . Then before the 5D is finished, cancel it into 8. You can use either button, but the effects may be different.
8B/D, 8B/D - After the first 8 special connects, you must link into a second one. This requires considerably more timing than a simple chain.
