Wall Rush (Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy)

From Dissidia Wiki

Wall Rush is a state in which the player has sustained an attack that sent them towards a wall or floor, triggering a response during which the player cannot act without meter. Once this happens, the player suffers roughly an additional 25 % damage of the previously inflicted bravery or HP damage. Wall Rush is often a property found in moves with notable knockback but it is applied to specific moves. For example, Zidane's Meo Twister sends the opponent abnormally far but does not inflict Wall Rush despite the fact.

During a Wall Rush, the player is vulnerable to an Assist character's attacks. Conversely, if an Assist character wall rushed an opponent, they are then susceptible to follow-up attacks from the player character. A player character who wall rushed their opponent cannot immediately peel them off the wall for another follow-up by themselves, this requires an Assist for it and vice-versa.

Also, while being wall rushed the player can utilise Assist Change, either LV1 or LV2 by consuming one or two assist bars respectively. If the EX meter is full, R + Square will initiate EX Revenge instead of EX Mode. This applies even during an assist call's slowdown.
