Within the context of 2D fighters, abare refers to a character's ability to deal damage off of random hits and trades.
An example of a character with good abare in SF4 is Ryu, who can deal damage off of just about any of his moves. Another example is Slayer in Guilty Gear Accent Core, who can do a good amount of damage off of just about everything he has.
Within the context of 3D fighters, abare refers to a player's tendency to attack when he's at a frame disadvantage.
Although some look down on abare play as being a crutch for players with weak fundamentals, abare is also seen at high levels of Virtua Fighter play; there is good abare (attacking from a mild disadvantage with a fast move) and bad abare (mashing 2P).
