Note: All commands are assuming your character is facing right.
If you are facing left, you must reverse the directional commands.
Backwards becoming Forwards and Vice Versa.
It's recommended that your controls match the default setting.

Key:
U = Up/Jump
D = Down/Crouch
B = Back/High Block
F = Forward
DB = Down-Back/Low Block
DF = Down-Forward
UB = Up-Back/Jump Back
UF = Up-Forward/Jump Forward
Universal:
[P] = Punch
[K] = Kick
[BO] = Blow Out
[TAUNT] = Taunt
Neo Geo:
[P] = [A]
[K] = [B]
[BO] = [C]
[TAUNT] = [D]
   

Taunt Decreases opponent's Spirit Gauge
Dash: F F
Back Step: B B
Mid-Section Attack: (DF+[A]/[B])
Pursuit Attack: (DF+[A]/[B]) (when opponent is knocked down)
Rush Attack: (F+[A]/[B]) (pressed repeatedly)
Throw: (F+[C]) (close)
Moving Wallop: (B+[C]) (close, when attacked)
Rage Restore: (Hold [A]/[B]/[C]/[D]) for Required Time
The Rage Gauge & Rage System:
A certain amount of Rage Energy is required to use Special Attacks and they won't pack their full power without the required amount of energy. Rage Energy is indicated by the level of the Rage Gauge, and it drops as you use Special Attacks. But watch out! Use these moves in wild succession and you'll quickly exhaust your Rage Energy and find yourself in a pickle. Your strategy for using Rage Energy holds an important key to victory.
Taunt:
You can reduce your opponent's rage Gauge energy to an extent by using Taunt moves. This helps if your opponent relies on Special Attacks to get out of tight spots. But stay away from your opponent using these since these make your completely defenseless.
Rage Restore:
You can restore expended Rage Gauge energy using the Spirit Restore command. As with the Taunt command, however, this command renders you defenseless so time this right.
Mid-Section Attack:
You can use combinations of mid-section punches and kicks to disable crouching guards. But only Karman can use mid-section punches.
Pursuit Attack:
This gives you the chance to make additional damage when your opponent is knocked down.
Moving Wallop:
This puts your opponent off balance to topple him over as you avoid his attack. You can also use an Pursuit Attack on the knocked down opponent. Only with Kasumi Todoh does this become a spin-around attack at close range.
Rush Attack:
This lets you alternate between punch or kick combos. You can also use combos of these by combining these attacks.
Heat Mode:
Heat Mode activates when a character's Power Gauge drops below 25%. During Heat Mode, character flash red and their attack strength increases by 20%; so if the Spirit Gauge level at the time is more than 75%, you can use a Super Special Attack.
Ultimate K.O.:
Usually the first player to win two rounds takes the match, but when you can make an Ultimate K.O. successfully you can win in only one round. To do this, both characters must be in Heat Mode and your opponent can only have a little Power energy left when K.O.'d by a Super Special Attack.
