Matching gems and dealing damage to your opponent always contributes to winning the fight in two specific ways: The Pin Meter Located just above the gems, the pin meter moves back and forth based on the number of gems matched. 

If the meter reaches all the way to one side, then the Superstar will be pinned! Health Bar Located just above the fighters, the health bar depletes from taking damage. If health is completely depleted, then a pin will result in an automatic 3 count! 

If the health bar is not depleted and a Superstar gets pinned, they will have three turns to break out. The player who is pinned has to exceed the damage done on the turn that initiated the pin in order to successfully break out.
