Under Night In-Birth/Controls
When you step in the direction your character is facing, you get a front-step. When you input it in the opposite direction, you get a back-step. Step distances are character dependent. You can cancel front-step at any point, even into guarding.
Inputting 7, 8 or 9 on the ground will allow you to jump in that direction.
Assault (Air Dash) - +File:UNI D.gif - Available in the air
This will allow you to move horizontally in the air for a character specific distance. Consumes 10% of the EXS Gauge.
File:UNI A.gif - Weak Attack
File:UNI B.gif - Medium Attack
File:UNI C.gif - Strong Attack
File:UNI D.gif - EXS Action
All normal throws involve pressing A and D and the same time. On the ground, you can do a neutral throw with just A+D or a forward/back throw by adding the 4 or 6 direction to the throw input. Some characters can also air throw, but there is only one type of those. You can break throws in the air and ground with the same input as throw. You can follow up neutral throws, but the start up is slower and much easier to break.
After being hit in the air, you can tech by pressing A, B or C. If you hold a direction as well, you will tech in the direction that you specify. After air teching you are invulnerable and unable to act until you touch the ground, similar to a Street Fighter air reset.
When knocked down on the ground, you can hold any button before you hit the ground to ground tech.

Guard Thrust 「ガードスラスト」 - + File:UNI D.gif (Requires 100% EXS Gauge)
An invincible counter attack from block. If you're in Vorpal state, you can consume the status to make a Guard Thrust. If you aren't in Vorpal state you can use 100% EXS to make a Guard Thrust, but this will result you a GRD Break status.
