    Power bar in video games gets filled in full.

    "The power bar in the fighting video games (like street fighters) that is located at the top of the screen gets filled fully or in full in each new round."

    Do fully and in full mean the same?

    Say that the power bar is completely full at the start of each level.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Do "fully" and "in full" mean the same thing?

    Re: Power bar in video games gets filled in full.

    No, don't use "gets" instead of "is".

    The power level bar is full at the start of each level.
    The power level bar becomes full before the start of each level.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Power bar in video games gets filled in full.

    You could say it "gets refreshed" maybe.

    But it's not the best choice.

    Can you look at "it is filled fully" and see why this is bad style?

    Yes, because of "filled fully" but I am confused I think "filled" doesn't mean completley full, right? Can we say "filled in full" or "it was half filled?"

    Re: Power bar in video games gets filled in full.

    You could say "half-filled" or "filled" but "fully filled" is redundant.
