Directional left and right buttons are also used for changing what attacks are executed.

Universal Command List


Walk - Hold FS L.png or FS R.png for backwards and forwards walk.

Jump - FS J.png for jump. Adding FS L.png or FS R.png will do a backwards or forwards jump.


Normal Attack - FS A.png will perform a normal attack on the ground or in the air. FS L.png or FS R.png will give a different normal.

Special - FS B.png or FS C.png will perform a special on the ground or in the air. For some characters, FS L.png or FS R.png may give different versions of the special.

Throw - FS T.png will perform a throw on the ground, throws cannot be blocked. FS L.png+FS T.png will give a throw that side switches.

Super - FS S.png will perform a super on the ground or in the air. Supers require a full super meter to be used and will deplete it after being executed.


Block - Hold FS L.png or FS R.png away from your opponent to block attacks.

Yomi Counter - Release all controls and enter an idle state. Any throw done with FS T.png will be countered and you will gain full super meter.


Alternative input methods found in the Button Configuration in-game. 2-button macros must be inputted within 3 frames of each other.

Jump - Jump may optionally be performed with the Up direction.

Throw - Throw may be performed with FS J.png+FS A.png or FS A.png+FS B.png.

Super - Super may be performed with FS B.png+FS C.png.


Wiki Notation

This Wiki uses a visual icon notation that aims to be easy to read and serve as a middle ground.

  • FS L.pngFS R.png indicate left or right directions.
  • FS J.png indicates a jump.
  • FS A.pngFS B.pngFS C.pngFS S.pngFS T.png indicates the Attack buttons.
  • , indicates a Link or a pause between Attacks
  • > indicates a cancel
  • + indicates a combination of buttons
  • Other notes may be written out to indicate a specific move or situation

Other Notation

The community will often use a concise notation that consists of letters.

  • b, n, f, j indicate back, neutral, forward, jump.
  • A, B, C, S, T indicate attack buttons.

Numpad notation

Due to numpad notation not gaining traction among the community it has not been adopted for this wiki.


Input Buffer

In Fantasy Strike, you always get an 8-frame input buffer. Whenever you press the FS A.png, FS B.png, FS C.png, FS S.png, or FS T.png buttons, if that move is able to come out within the next 8-frames, it will.

This doesn't apply to movement buttons, however you can simply hold FS L.png, FS R.png, or FS J.png and it will happen the first available frame.

Pre-jump Frames

Pre-jump frame data is universal: 3 frames of pre-jump where the character is considered grounded, on the 4th frame the character is airborne.

Minimum height

All moves done in the air have a minimum height restriction on them on the way up. Moves can be done on the way down as late as desired, but the startup is not guaranteed to be finished.

Jump Special Buffer

If the FS J.png button is held this will always prevent the grounded version from coming out. This can be a useful trick for players trying to get the minimum height on a move on the way up or down.

Take care if using the super macro, when the height restriction of the super is higher you may get an air special before the super is a valid input.

Throw Priority

There are 3 different versions of throw. Back, Neutral, and Forward done with FS L.png+FS T.png, FS T.png, or FS R.png+FS T.png respectively.

If and only if a throws hit on the same frame will a priority check happen.

  • Directional throws have higher priority than neutral throw.
  • Back and Forward throw have the same priority
  • If both throws are the same priority one of the throws will win at random.
