Spirit Commands, also called Seishin (精神), are special commands from the Super Robot Wars series. Spirit Commands resemble magic spells in traditional role-playing games. The primary difference is that unlike the spells exhibited in role-playing games such as Final Fantasy, Spirit Commands are not typically outward manifestations of power; for the most part, they are inward manifestations used to enhance one's own abilities in battle. Within the context of the Super Robot Wars series, Spirit Commands can be thought of as feats of willpower used by exceptionally strong-willed people; hence, they are typically only used by the player's characters and by major boss characters. Spirit Commands are used by expending Spirit Points (SP), which function much like Magic points in role-playing games and can be recovered through the use of certain Spirit Commands, abilities, and items.

The list of Spirit Commands available in each Super Robot Wars game varies, usually based on that game's mechanics. For example, Super Robot Wars Alpha 3 has a Spirit Command devoted to Song Energy, an important plot element of one of the featured series, Macross 7. Additionally, the cost of some Spirit Commands can be variable. While some games in the series feature fixed point costs, others have costs that vary from person to person.

In Super Robot Wars Original Generations, a seventh Spirit Command, known as the Twin Command, can only be activated when a pilot is put into a squad with another unit. This Twin Command, unique to each character, takes Spirit Points from both characters in the squad and is generally more powerful than the other Spirit Commands available to them normally. Traditionally, previous Super Robot Wars titles only give playable characters a set of six Spirit Commands. Original Generations is the first game in the franchise to break the six Spirit Command limit.

Spirit Commands are also used in Shin Masoukishin: Panzer Warfare, a tactical role-playing game that features mecha from the Cybuster anime. WinkySoft's Seireiki Rayblade also features a modified version of Spirit Commands. In addition, some SD Gundam G Generation games feature ID Commands which are based on Spirit Commands.

NOTE: Names are taken from the American release of Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation. Spirit Commands that do not appear in this game have unofficial translations, marked with an asterisk (*).
