  • blockstun: The duration in which you are unable to move while blocking an attack.
  • blockswitch: An advanced IaMP technique where you pass through an opponent during blockstun, allowing for a left-right mixup.
  • BNB: "Bread and Butter". This denotes a staple combo for a character which you must be familiarized with as it is considered an essential portion of their offensive tactics.

  • hitstun: The duration in which you are unable to block while being hit by an attack.

  • point item: Little blue tabs which you collect when you knock an enemy down or hit them while they have bullets on-screen. These restore a bit of your spirit.

  • situational: A term denoting a tactic or combo that can only be used under certain circumstances and cannot be done in a neutral state where both characters are on the ground.
