During battle, there is a gauge on the left, called the Party Gauge. It fills up as you successfully attack enemies. You can use either normal attacks or Break Attacks to fill it up. Break Attacks are special attacks that characters use. Break Attacks allows the player to repeatedly connect with an enemy, increasingly have the chance of inflicting Break status on them. The Party Gauge contains three levels which correspond to varying strengths of BAND attacks. BAND attacks are performances of Rune Songs. The images of the BAND system menu allows the player to choose the Center party character in the attack. The effects of a BAND attack vary depending on who the center character is. For example, setting Kirika as the Center will allow you take less damage and be more resilient against status ailments.
