Block/Air Block:
Press B. You can even block in mid-air.

Press B B to Dash Backward.  Press F F to Dash Forward. (Victor can only dash backward).

Press (F+[MP]/[HP]/[MK]/[HK]) (not available for Anakaris).

You can recover from dizziness more quickly by pressing B/F and by pressing [P]/[K] rapidly. You can escape grab moves in this manner as well.

When your opponent falls, you can pursue and attack by pressing (U+[K]).

Standing Up:
When you fall, you can distance yourself from your opponent before you get up. Press B/F to perform this move.
Special Moves:
As you perform attack and special moves (whether or not they cause damage) or block your opponents' attacks the SPECIAL move gauge below your character's Vitality Gauge will begin to fill up. Once the gauge fills completely, the "SPECIAL" sign will light up and be replaced with a number. This number indicates the level or number of SPECIAL moves you can perform. For example, if your gauge becomes full, and the number changes from "2" to "3", you can now perform 3 SPECIAL moves before having to re-charge. SPECIAL moves are powerful moves that can be unleashed and do intense damage to your opponent.

If you don't consume a level, you can continue to charge your SPECIAL move gauge and build up even more moves (limited stock available). Stocked moves can be used in a following round if you like, but do not carry over to a new match.

ES Moves:
There are 2 types of SPECIAL moves. The first are called ES moves. (Enhanced Special), which are enhanced versions of some of the special moves. When you have remaining stock in the SPECIAL gauge, enter the Directional Button command for the move, followed by 2 or more buttons simultaneously. For example, if the special move requires you to press a Punch button at the end of the move, you can execute the ES move by pressing 2 or more Punch button simultaneously instead of one. ES moves damage your opponent more than the original special move would and knock down your opponent. Not all special moves have ES moves. Look for the ES symbol listed next to the move.

EX Moves:
EX move (Extra Special) are extremely powerful moves that can be performed when you have stock built up in your SPECIAL move gauge. Each character has more than one of these EX moves. Experiment with different Directional Button motions and attack buttons to perform these EX moves.

Their spirits joined into one body after their death and they became the ghost Hsien-Ko. Although they have yet to realize it, they are rapidly becoming what they swore to destroy! They now race against time to complete their tasks before their humanity drains away completely.
