Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of Gif animations of Link Actions, Dual Links and Link Styles being used..
The Link System (リンクシステム Rinku Shisutemu) is a game mechanic that appears in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It allows Sora and Riku to harness the powers of the Spirit Dream Eaters in their party.
Linking with a Spirit uses up the Link Gauge, which appears below its profile sprite. If one Spirit's Link Gauge is full, a Single Link can be initiated with it, and when both active Spirits have full Link Gauges, a Dual Link can be initiated with both of them. While a link is in effect, the Link Gauge or Gauges will steadily deplete until empty, although links can be ended or interrupted prematurely.
Sora and Riku each use a different type of link with the the Dream Eaters in their party.
 Link Attack
Sora can join with a Spirit to execute a Link Attack (リンクアタック Rinku Atakku), a special technique utilizing the Spirit's natural abilities. Many species of Dream Eater have unique Link Actions associated with them, although some techniques are shared between species.
