Default Re: Difference between cross and straight?

A cross has a little loop to it and more downward momentum at the point of impact. Yes, it can cross over the opponent's guard, and that's probably where it got its name. It does not have be a counter however. It's a very good punch to throw when an opponent protects the front of his face very good with his hand. A straight is more linear and reaches the point of impact quicker.
