The two shotlock reticules; the one on the left still has time and the other has none.

Shotlock (シュートロック Shūto Rokku?, lit. "Shoot Lock") is a combat mechanic for Terra, Aqua, and Ventus that debuted in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. It is initiated by holding Template:Button and Template:Button together. The user enters first person mode and locks onto enemies, and by pressing Template:Button, the user then initiates a powerful attack that hits all targeted enemies. By locking onto the maximum amount of enemies, additional attacks can be added by following on-screen prompts.

The amount of time the user has to lock onto targets depends on the Focus Gauge, which empties when the attack is initiated and can be refilled by attacking enemies and using Ethers. Most of the Shotlocks in the game can be learned by all three Keyblade wielders, but they also get several that are unique to themselves.

There are three basic types of Shotlocks that can be categorized based on the type of button input. One involves pressing the Template:Button button repeatedly while the user fires many blasts of magic. Another involves the user dashing around surrounded by an elemental aura and ending with the player putting in the right combination to generate large pillars of magic. The last form involves timing and pressing the Template:Button button as a ring lines up with another, this usually has the user firing blasts of different magic in rounds similar to Ragnarok.
