Below are the common inputs you may see when discussing fighting games on these forums.
  • All directionals assume the player is on the left side of the screen, facing to the right.
  • Traditionally, hold-inputs have been wrapped in brackets [] to denote the hold.
    However, because of BbCode, [B] can not be typed out without bolding text.
    Because of this, users have begun wrapping hold-inputs in parenthesis () instead.
    This guide has been updated to reflect these changes. Brackets will still work in most cases.
