# Thread: Terminology Used on Dustloop Defined

1. I'm guessing dashing for a very very short time so that you get some forward momentum? But we just say "dash 5a" or "dash 5B" if we want to indicate that. Where did you read this? What was its context?

2. Ragna general discussion on this very site. Last 2 pages. Used in context of Ragnas Challenge 7, between the 6C and 5D 214D.

3. Yeah, "micro dash" in this context means that you dash for a very short while so that you adjust Ragna after the 6C dash cancel to be able to hit 5D(1) 214D in such a way so that after the Deadspike launches them you can catch them with the a dash 5C to continue the combo. It'd look like this in number notation: xxxx> 6C(2 hits) > 66 (dash cancel)> 66 5D (1) >214D> 66 5C.

4. So you're just using the first 66 to cancel the 6C, but not actually dash until you input the second 66?

You're inputting the first 66 to dash cancel the 6C, so you do dash a fixed distance after 6C. But that's not enough to position yourself properly to follow-up with the 5d(1) 214D, so you do a very brief 66 dash ( a "micro-dash").

6. Ah, I see. Thanks, dude, much appreciated.

7. Can anyone help me explain what these terms stand for : SR, S(J)R, R, DR, CSR, CSJR ( in the "Cancel" column of frame data ) ? THanks.

Each letter represents a certain cancel.
• S = Special Cancel
• D = Special Cancel with Drive only
• J = Jump Cancel
• (J) = Jump Cancel on hit only
• R = Rapid Cancel
• C = Cancels into itself (5As and j.As usually have this quality)

Thanks

10. What is "Special Cancel" ? Is it similar to Revolver action?
