Battle Rules

SSSS-battle-rules

1. HP Gauge: Shows the characters’ remaining HP.
2. Timer: The amount of time left in the round. When this  hits zero, the battle is over and the character with the most HP left wins.
3. Round counter: Icons showing the number of rounds won so far.
4. Combo counter: The number of hits in the current combo (if one is active).
5. Seventh Sense Gauge: A gauge that fills up as you perform assorted moves or perform a Cosmo charge. When it hits max, you’ll be able to perform a Seventh Sense Awakening.
6. Cosmo Gauge: A gauge consumed by burst dashes, burst regular/strong attacks, and so on. Charge it up by striking with your attacks, taking damage, or performing a Cosmo charge.

Basic Rules

The player who cuts their foe’s HP down to zero first wins the round. Whichever side wins two rounds first is the winner of the battle (in the default settings). Go to “Battle Settings” in the Options menu to change the number of rounds required for victory.

Draws

If you and your opponent’s HP reach zero at the same time or if you both have the same amount of HP when time expires, the round is declared a draw.
If you and your opponent draw the final round in “Galaxy War”, player 1 will be declared the winner. (For all other battles, both players will be declared loser.)
