Turning on simple hit box display from the Practice Room pause menu shows hit boxes over all characters on screen. Red and orange attack boxes only appear during the active frames of attacks. Hurt boxes always cover the character and represent their vulnerable or invulnerable outline. Hurt boxes shift colors as characters move, attack, and defend. Attack boxes and hurt boxes overlap when an attack successfully hits or gets blocked by the defending character. Many boxes do not match the exact outline of a character as drawn. Weapons, hair, and other extremities may not have hit boxes at all.

Advanced hit box display shows additional information with hit boxes. Additional hurt box colors show invulnerability to different types of attack. The physical extent box, appearing over a character's center of mass on screen, shows the areas of characters which cannot overlap and will push other characters away. The character's object point appears at the character's feet indicating the character's reference point in the game engine.
