GROOVE ENERGY: Underneath the life boxes at the top of the screen is your Groove Gauge. This goes up as you attack and is used for activating special moves. Groove Attacks use Groove Energy. UGA’s use a full bar. Also some Rave DB special powers use Grove Energy.

POWER BLOCK: If you block an attack by hitting the L trigger just as the attack lands, you gain some Groove Energy.

Need to pick up Groove DBs to change Ten Commandments and Decalogs to different forms.

  • Explosion (fiery blade) – extra damage
  • Silfarion (silver blade) – longer reach
  • Rune save (green blade) – increases groove gauge
  • Blue Crimson (two swords) – elemental damage
  • Melforce (big green sword) – ?

Elie can do a weak UGA using 1 of 3 Rave DBs.

Only Musica can pick up the Silver Spear (it looks like a skull).

Let can do Firebreath without any weapon. He can only do his UGA if you haven’t picked up any Rave DBs. He can do another UGA in the air.

Rosa’s UGA only freezes Male characters. You can beat them up while they are frozen.
