• Heat Gauge : the 'Heat Gauge' is necessary for powerful attacks such as the 'Distortion Drive'. It is also necessary for a 'Rapid Cancel', where you can cancel an opponent's move when they try to attack. You can increase the 'Heat Gauge' by landing an attack on the enemy.

• Barrier Gauge : the 'Barrier Gauge' is needed for 'barriers' that will defend you against the damage dealt by the enemy. The gauge also applies to the 'Barrier Burst' where you can blast someone away while you guard. When the 'Barrier Gauge' reaches zero, your defense level will go down for a period of time. The 'Barrier Gauge' will refill over time.
