First Appearance

"Link Techs" or "Link Techniques" is the name given to a special kind of attack in the RPG video game Sailor Moon: Another Story. These can be performed from 2 to 3 characters and can be used to deal with damage or for defensive purposes. 

How to Unlock Them

The Link Techs are available from the start of the game, but the player must "discover" them first: Accessing the "Make Up Link" menu, the player can choose two or three characters and by pressing the control button "Y", he/she can check if the chosen characters can perform a Link attack together. Usually, the key to making a successful link is to team up characters that share something in common or are related in some way (for example Sailor Mercury has linked attacks with every one of the Inner Sailor Senshi, and also with Sailor Neptune because they both share water-type attacks).

The only link attack that is not unlocked this way is "Rainbow Moon Heart Ache", performed by Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon (these two can't be selected in the "Make Up" menu because they appear only in battle)

Properties

Like every other move in the game, a link technique consumes EP of all characters involved in such an attack. The amount of EP depleted is the same for everyone and if one of them doesn't have the necessary EP, the attack can not be used.

A link technique, unlike a formation or group technique which requires the first character to select it, otherwise it won't work; it can be selected by any of the Sailor Senshi at any time. The only requirement is (outside of having the necessary EP) that the sailors involved have to be alive. Some link moves affect the whole team (granting power boosts or healing HP/EP), but they don't affect fainted allies (the exception are moves that specifically revive fainted Sailor Senshi).

List of link techniques

There are a total of 37 link techs in the game: 5 involve three Sailor Senshi and 32, only two. All 2 Sailor Senshi attacks consume 2 EP and all 3 Sailor Senshi attacks consume 3 EP.

First are the Sailor Senshi necessary for the move to be executed are listed, then the in-game description and, at last, which characters the move affects.

Trivia

  • These attacks might seem stronger versions than individual attacks (because they need more characters to be performed), but most individual attacks usually deal as much more damage than link ones.
  • If Sailor Moon uses the Moon Cup 1 in battle, she loses all her link techs until the battle ends. The same happens with Sailor Chibi Moon (although with the Moon Cup 2).
  • Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon can team up with every other Sailor Senshi.
  • In the anime, some Sailor Senshi were shown being able to "mix" attacks to create a more powerful one.
