The Ability Customize System can be accessed from the seventh line of Set-up Screen (where you choose Manual or Auto mode).
Move left and right to select different abilities and use the A and B buttons to increase or decrease that ability.

|Physical Strength||Increases your hit points / life force bar|
|Defense||Increases your resistance to attacks|
Increases your playfulness. To what effect....?
When performing a special attack, this increases the chances that the attack will fizzle out, causing no damage to your opponent and leaving you vulnerable to attack.
What does this do? You'll have to find out for yourself.
That's what the manual says. What this really does is increase the strength of your Desperation Attack.
