In World Wide Warriors, duels are fought between up to 4 different players, who select different characters to fight on a variety of stages and win matches. All characters can attack, shield, dodge, and repulse. Attacks consist of standard and directional moves, as well as unique Special Abilities. Shielding acts as a way to completely negate or shrug off some damage from attacks, and perfectly timing a shield initiates a counterattack known as a repulse. In the air, different attacks are utilized compared to ground moves and shielding is turned into a temporary dodge manuever.
Landing successful hits, using special abilities, and countering attacks are all actions that fill up a meter known as the Power Gauge. The Power Gauge has 3 levels of charge, and pressing the Gauge command will use up the selected level of charge for a unique UltiMove. UltiMoves can have different effects from character to character, such as boosting stats or unleashing a powerful and unavoidable attack.
In most scenarios, the goal of a duel is to deplete your opponent's energy by attacking them repeatedly. The less health a character is, the harder they get hit by attacks, sending them flying further and out of safe stage boundaries. When a player's energy is completely depleted, they enter Glory Mode, a last-effort attempt that amplifies stats at the cost of being susceptible to loss if one more attack lands. Continuing to fill up the Power Gauge while in Glory Mode eventually restores a little bit of energy to the player.
In team battles where both opponents need to be eliminated in order for a match to win, fallen teammates can enter a Spirit State once they are knocked out. Spirit States are much weaker than regular fighters, being unable to deal knockback to their opponents and usually dealing very small amounts of damage, if any at all. However, their Power Gauge can still be filled, and completely filling it will revive the character with a little bit of health, like Glory Mode.
There are currently fifteen revealed characters in World Wide Warriors so far.
