Goh Notes will foremost make use of the graphical transcription () which is quick to read but for the first-player side only.
However, there are numerous other ways of transcribing moves in Virtua Fighter, such as the numerical (3P) or abbreviated form (d/f+P). Either form has its advantages and disadvantages: numerical is good for quickly typing or telling someone a move verbally; the abbreviated form is universal due to the fact that it doesn’t matter on which side you stand, whereas the graphical transcription is very catchy but needs real icons (graphics).
Here you can find all the transcriptions and how they translate. Below you will find the notation used on this page, as well, other generally known ones, so that you can compare.

P or = Punch button
K or = Kick button
G or = Guard button
Just like in algebra, you may sometimes see something like x or x. Those are series starting with the same move(s), but ending with different options. X stands for a variable here, just like in maths. Take a look at this example:
- P, K () = Lau’s punch-kick
- P, P, K () = Lau’s double punch-heel kick
- P, P, P, d+K () = Lau’s triple punch-sweep
Let’s have a look at examples, such as the Dash:
As well, Crouch Dash (CD) can be achieved with inputting various motions; here are the most popular methods:
