Deck Command (KHBBS)
Deck Commands (デッキコマンド, Dekki Komando?) are equippable skills that can be used in the field in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. The two main types are Battle Commands (バトルコマンド, Batoru Komando?), which appear in and can be used from the Command Menu, and Action Commands (アクションコマンド, Akushon Komando?).
Deck Commands can be equipped from the main menu, under "Deck Commands". Shotlocks can also be set in this menu. Deck Commands gain experience in the form of Command Points, or CP, and will level up, becoming more powerful or effective. CP may be gained in battle by defeating enemies, or on the Command Board by using commands to purchase spaces.
Finish commands can also be set from the Deck Command menu, as well as from the Status menu.

Battle commands, which consist of Attack, Magic, Item and Friendship commands, can be used during battle to cause damage to enemies, heal damage, or otherwise affect the tide of battle. Battle commands undergo a period of cooldown after use, which is longer for more powerful commands, with the exception of item commands, which may be used repeatedly but have a limited number of uses.
Each Dimension Link has its own unique Deck of commands, and while most of these are simply recycled from the normal list of Attack and Magic Commands, the Cinderella, Snow White, and Vanitas D-Link Decks are composed of completely original commands.
Action commands can be used freely in the field, and they consist of Movement, Defense, and Reprisal commands. Movement commands grant the player greater mobility in the field, Defense commands allow the player to block enemy attacks, negating damage, and Reprisal commands allow the player to counter enemy attacks and movements, often with a return attack.
Shotlocks are long-distance attacks executed by holding and together to lock onto enemies, then pressing , in Japan, to initiate the attack.
