A Counter Hit, as the name implies, is the act of countering or interrupting the startup frames of an opponent's attack with a player's own attack. Depending on game, counter hits will provide various bonuses including, but not limited to; increased damage, longer hitstun, slightly higher frame advantages, knockdowns, groundbounces, wallbounces, or other properties.

In MUGEN, implementing a counterhit system usually relies on detecting the opponent's movetype as an attack type (movetype = A). However, if an opponent character forgets to set the recovery frames of an attack as "Idle" by using the StateTypeSet controller, these systems can result in false positives.
