Various support abilities let characters quickly move around the arena. The nature of the dash including its speed and where the character moves depends on the exact type of Dash equipped: Free Air Dash lets the character dash towards their target, while Reverse Free Air Dash moves them away from their target. Air Dash dashes towards the target at a higher speed than Free Air Dash, but can only be used during Quickmove. Reverse Air Dash dashes the character away from their target during Quickmove. The strongest and most versatile Dash ability is Omni Air Dash, which has high speed and can be used to dash in any direction. However, except when targeting EX Cores the character will only move on the horizontal plane and cannot dash up or down.
The ability Multi Air Slide functions similarly to Omni Air Dash - the character can quickly dash in any direction at high speed, but only once and only after they are at the peak of their jump. Multi Air Slide+ lets the character dash twice.
Dissidia 012 introduces the Ground Dash. In comparison to the various Air Dash abilities, Ground Dashes keep the character on the ground while moving, but they cannot Dash in the air. Omni Air Dash and Omni Ground Dash have upgraded variants with the "+" suffix, which allow the player to steer their character's direction with the analog stick while dashing.
Dash comes in three levels of power, and increases the character's speed during FMS after getting Good or better on 50 Triggers, the speed boost increasing for stronger levels of the ability.
