Payback Surge is a technique that appears in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. It allows the user to counterattack by lunging forward cloaked in a barrier after being knocked back into the air by an enemy's attack.


In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Payback Surge is a Reprisal command that has a maximum level of 4 and fills the Command Gauge by 30%. It can be used exclusively by Aqua, and is performed by pressing Square after being knocked back into the air. Aqua is invincible while using Payback Surge.
