Versus Techniques

Some techniques can be enhanced when they are used opposite an opponent's technique. In multiple-opponent fights, only the opponent you are targeting matters. See technique forms for details.

Special note: When checking for versus conditionals, only the base form of a technique is checked — for techniques known to the player, this means the type as shown on the actual technique popup. For example, opposing Raven's Eyes technique always counts as vs. Etheric, no matter what kind of damage it actually deals. Fanged snowman page (among other pages) has details.
