Special skills are a battle mechanic in Azure Striker Gunvolt that are rewarded to Gunvolt when he reaches specific level up milestones. They consume SP instead of EP upon use; Gunvolt begins each stage run with three SP and consumed SP will regenerate after 1 minute and 7 seconds per SP.

Upon use, a skill requires a cooldown before it can be used again. This factor, along with the SP consumption factor, limits the use of special skills.

Offensive Skills Edit

Some skills are damage-dealing and can deal massive damage if used correctly.

Skill Learned at Cost Max Damage Cooldown Time
Astrasphere Level 1 1 SP 120 6 seconds
Luxcalibur Level 13 2 SP 250 6 seconds
Voltaic Chains Level 40 3 SP 1 Tag = 200

3 Tags = 300
4 Tags = 350
5+ Tags = 400

Astrasphere Edit

ライトニングスフィア、Lightning Sphere

"Lightning that flickers / Like a star, and purges all / That violate its realm! Astrasphere!"

Gunvolt summons three electric orbs that briefly circle around him, dealing damage over time. Gunvolt remains stationary and is invulnerable to enemy attacks for the duration of this attack.

Luxcalibur
Luxcalibur

Luxcalibur Edit

スパークカリバー、Spark Calibur

"Sacred sword agleam / Barbarous and bathed in blue / Cleaving right from wrong! Luxcalibur!"

Gunvolt unleashes a large electrical sword directly in front of him, dealing massive, instantaneous damage to any enemy within its range.

Voltaic Chains Edit

ヴォルティックチェーン、Voltic Chain

"Bolts of rebellion / A thunderous voice in his heart / Speaks of one true law! Voltaic Chains!"

Gunvolt summons several chains that criss-cross the screen. He then charges them with electricity that deals instantaneous damage to any enemy that is in contact with the chains. The damage output scales with the number of tags on-screen.

Offensive Skills & Kudos Edit

As Gunvolt damages his enemies, he accumulate score multipliers called "Kudos." When using an offensive skill, Gunvolt accrues 1 Kudos per 1 point of damage. The Kudos count essentially determines the overall performance score in a stage, which in turn determines the rank received at the end of a mission.

The Kudos count continues to increase throughout Gunvolt's endeavors on stage but will not increase the actual stage score until Gunvolt "locks-in" or applies the multipliers to his current stage score. One effective way to lock-in Kudos is to use an offensive skill. Thus, when anticipating a particularly hard boss fight, one way to salvage the stage score is to use an offensive skill on the boss mid-fight to apply the Kudos multiplier earned thus far to Gunvolt's total score. Upon locking in, the Kudos count resets to zero.

On another note, if Gunvolt defeats a boss using an offensive skill, he will earn a bonus +500 Kudos before the multipliers are applied to the stage score (e.g., if the Kudos count is at 523 upon use of an offensive skill and the offensive skill lands a finishing blow on the boss, 1023 Kudos multipliers in addition to the Kudos gain from damage dealt to the boss will be applied to the overall stage score).

Support Skills Edit

In addition to offensive skills, Gunvolt can learn a plethora of support skills that can temporarily or instantaneously bolster Gunvolt's battle capabilities or save him in a pinch. The use of support skills does not "lock-in" the Kudos multipliers to the overall stage score.

Skill Learned at Cost Duration Cooldown Time
Galvanic Patch Level 3 1 SP Instantaneous 8 seconds
Septimal Burst Level 10 1 SP 30 seconds 8 seconds
Split Second Level 18 1 SP Instantaneous 8 seconds
Alchemical Field Level 24 1 SP 30 seconds 8 seconds
Galvanic Renewal Level 30 2 SP Instantaneous 8 seconds
Septimal Surge Level 65 1 SP 30 seconds 8 seconds

Galvanic Patch Edit

ヒーリングヴォルト、Healing Volt

Gunvolt instantaneously recovers a fourth of his maximum health.

Septimal Burst Edit

ブーストヴォルト、Boost Volt

Upon use, Gunvolt recovers his EP at a faster rate than usual. Multiple uses do not stack the effects (unconfirmed).

Splitsecond
Split Second

Split Second Edit

チャージングアップ、Charging Up

Gunvolt instantaneously restores his EP to a full meter. Using this support skill cures Gunvolt of the Overheat or Chaff status.

Alchemical Field Edit

アルケミィライズ、Alchemy Rise

Upon use, Gunvolt will recover health, gain credits, and gain experience at twice the usual rates. The effects of this skill do not apply to the Kudos gain from collecting the hidden characters (i.e., collecting a hidden character will not set your Kudos count to 2,000).

Galvanic Renewal Edit

リヴァイヴヴォルト、Revive Volt

Gunvolt instantaneously recovers maximum health.

Septimal Surge Edit

アンリミテッドヴォルト、Unlimited Volt

Upon use, Gunvolt's damage output is doubled.

Copen's SkillsEdit

In Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, Copen is also able to make use of skills. However, as he is not an adept, Copen doesn't gain any new skills by levelling up. Rather, he has two powerful skills available right from the start.

Shred StormEdit

ストライクソウ Strike Saw

May claws shatter chains / Of those who traipse in my wake / Begone you impure! Shred Storm!

A Special Skill carried out by the “Bits” and covers the whole screen. It’s a storm of slashes that draw the “Claw”(爪) Kanji on the screen. It instantly kills all enemies on the screen, and deals significant damage to bosses.

HealingEdit

ヒーリング

If you open the Pause Menu, the “Shred Storm” icon will become the “Healing” icon. If you touch it, you can recover all of your HP.

Boss SkillsEdit

When a boss reaches their third and final bar of life, they will perform their own unique special skill. After being performed for the first time, this skill will be performed randomly as part of their regular moveset. As bosses do not have Skill Point limits, it's possible for a boss to use their special move several times in a row.

Trivia Edit

  • All of the support skills require a cooldown time of 8 seconds.
