Generally speaking, sure, but Hi-Fi Rush is highly inventive, and several Special Attacks have distinct functions (which are mentioned in the Special Attack’s “Action Type” description). For instance, some Special Attacks are particularly good at:

  • Removing Chai’s weak opponents from the way.
  • Launching opponents into the air to create air combos.
  • Constructing a holographic replica of Chai to divert adversaries.
  • Creating a wall that keeps Chai from being attacked.
  • ‘Picking up’ any enemies Chai encounters while circling the field and dealing constant damage.

And those are only a handful of the numerous roles. Chai will be able to use an increasing number of Special Attacks as he goes through his journey and meets more allies.
