Divekick is a comedic parody of fighting game motifs and contains many humorous references to games (especially those in the Street Fighter franchise) as well as inside jokes from within the competitive fighting game community. Unlike most fighting games which are played using many buttons for many different kinds of movement and attacks, Divekick is played using only two buttons, Dive and Kick. Pressing Dive causes the character to perform a vertical jump, with each character having different jump height and speed. After Diving, the player can press the Kick button to perform a diving kick, with each character kicking at a different speed and angle. Pressing Kick while standing performs a backward evasive hop for most characters called a "kickback". Using these moves is the only way to move, evade, attack, and dodge. Performing a divekick will partly fill a Kick Meter displayed at the bottom of the screen. This meter can be partially expended to perform a special move, activated by pressing both buttons at once. Each character has two unique special moves: one used on the ground, and one used in the air. By performing a kick when the Kick Meter is filled entirely, players will activate "Kick Factor", a reference to the "X-Factor" mechanic in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Kick Factor gives the player a temporary speed boost and a slightly more advantageous kicking angle. Some characters also gain special properties, such as invulnerability, while in Kick Factor.
