Active Flow (アクティブフロウ Akutibu Furou) is a system introduced in BlazBlue: Centralfiction that activates by taking what is deemed to be “aggressive” actions. When activated, it increases damage output, shortens time between Overdrives, and improves Exceed Accel.

“Aggressive” defined as follows:

  • attacking, hitting, or forcing opponents to block,
  • using the Heat Gauge,
  • blocking the opponent’s overhead attack, or escaping their throw.

The effect can only be activated once during the course of a round, and using a Break Burst will disable Active Flow for the round.

Similarly, performing a Break Burst while Active Flow is enabled will instantly terminate the effect.
