Situation Commands seen on the left side are unlocked through battle performance.

Situation Commands are a gameplay element in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- and Kingdom Hearts III. They behave similarly to Reaction Commands, in which they behave differently depending on context.

Situation Commands can not only be selected through pressing Triangle, but by also pressing up on the D-pad to select the Situation Command and then pressing X, Circle in the Japanese version. Unlike Reaction Commands, multiple Situation Commands can appear at once.

General Situation Commands[edit]

Command Description Context
Open Open a treasure chest. When near a treasure chest.
Examine Investigate an object in the field. When near specific objects.
Save Open the Save menu. When near a Save Portal.

Situation Commands[edit]

Combat-based Situation Commands are unlocked through battle performance. Like Command Styles and Finish commands from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, engaging in combat has arrow-shaped markers appear above the Command Menu. When sufficient damage is inflicted while at three markers, the markers are dispensed and Situation Commands appear above the Command Menu, alongside a timer next to them indicating how long the player has until the Command disappears. These timers can be refreshed by re-initiating the Situation Command's trigger.

The Situation Commands that appear are based on the player's battle style when acquiring markers, and can vary among Grand Magic, Formchanges, Style Changes, Attractions, and Team Attacks. A highly-varied battle style can also unlock multiple Situation Commands simultaneously, allowing the player to unleash several powerful moves in rapid succession. If the player does not attack or block anything for a period of time, any gained markers will be discarded.
