Each character is divided into teams of 3 fighters, with each team having their own stories and reasons for entering the Team Slugfest. Each one has their own set of throws, command moves, special moves, Super Arts, and Critical Arts to let them stand out.
Super Arts require your current point character to have a Super Meter at Level 1 or higher, while Critical Arts need the Super Meter to be at Level 3 or higher before they can be executed, but they compensate with power.
