Being an MMO, City of Heroes doesn't have 'cheat codes'. Instead, this page will be used to list the various commands available to the player. These commands are typed into the chat window, starting with a '/'. Parts of the command in "" are parts set by the user, do not use "" in the actual command. Some commands are more for use with /bind, when you set a key to perform some special function, some may not work with /bind at all. Some trial and error is recommended.
