Guard Skills are techniques that allow the user to defend themselves against incoming attacks during a match. Each individual Guard Skill is performed in its own unique way, although the user generally forms a swirling purple shield around themselves when using their Guard Skill.
When performed, the Guard Skill makes the user invulnerable to damage. In addition, if the player successfully blocks an attack with the user's Guard Skill, half of the received damage will be transferred to the Ichikoro Gauge. If the blocked attack was a Special Move, the player's Ichikoro Gauge becomes completely filled up instead.
While all Guard Skills are the same in function, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses that are determined by two attributes: speed and power. There are even some whose functions vary; some last for only for about a second when used while others may last a little bit longer.
