Regular grab has one input. Command grab has several because it’s a special move. Command grab aren’t grabs. They are unblockable throws. You can’t use the term interchangeable. By your definition thunders back throw is a command grab. Which is not. Is a regular grab. There are plenty of regular grabs with one input. A command grab is a SPECIAL MOVE. A regular grab is not.

The ONLY part above, to me, that seems correct is that you say command grabs are special moves, which is something I already know and never disputed. That being said, EVERY throw/grab is unblockable, regular and command throws alike - that’s the nature of throws/grabs in almost every fighting game to date. Also, there IS a reason why I didn’t mention Thunder’s reverse throw as an example of a command grab - that’s because I KNOW it’s a regular throw and not a command grab (it’s a typical back-throw, b+LP+LK, that still counts as a normal throw); it just happens to be a regular throw with special properties (in that it can be used mid-combo), similar to how air throws work, in that even though they have special properties, they’re still considered normal throws.
Also, speaking of which, by your logic, air throws would be command grabs, since they’re not techable - but they’re not. They’re simply regular throws with special properties that can’t be teched because of said special properties (that is, being in the air). You merely need to look at a character’s command list to see where a regular throw vs. a command grab is listed to prove my point - everything that I’ve mentioned as a regular throw is listed under command attacks (don’t let the name fool you) whereas command grabs are listed under special moves.
I know I am right in this case. If you still don’t think so, you’re more than welcome to ask the resident expert, @Infilament or even @TheKeits.
Interestingly enough, upon further inspection, Kim Wu’s linking grab is neither a normal throw or a command grab - it’s a special move that is also a combat trait. Even more interesting is the fact that Thunder’s back throw, as I’ve said, is a regular throw (and not a command grab) that is also a combat trait, similar to Kim Wu’s linking grab, but unlike Kim Wu’s linking grab, is NOT considered a special move at all.
Furthermore, I did find out that Aganos’ throw with peacemaker is indeed untechable - it actually says it in the command list, so that, at least, clarifies that for me, and I admit to being wrong there.
Finally, you’ll be happy to hear that, as far as I can tell, I was also wrong about certain command grabs being techable.
