During a match, when there is nothing going on, the Link Animation will loop your character at standby. However, the animations will change depending on different situations. For example, when your character receives a hit, the portrait of that character will react to the damage. If you are winning by a large margin, then your character will have a relaxed expression. If you are attacking your opponent, the animations will change depending on how much damage you are doing to your opponent. There are more than ten different animations for each character. Any Link Animations that you have seen can be viewed at any time under the Gallery. If you would like to replicate an environment closer to the arcade version, you can turn the Link Animations off, replacing them with still illustrations on each side.
