    1. Introduction
      Well for those of you VF veterans, this is a VF unlike any VF made. No
    more button mashing fighters, Virtua Fighter 4 actually takes some skill
    to pull off these tasks. No more floating jumps, but just awesome all
    out gameplay. You have to have precise timing and the right button
    combination to pull off a devastating move, and these moves are quite
    fancy. Having played this game and in the practice modes, there seems to
    be an endless number of moves you can do, i can safely say that there is
    at least 10,000 moves or more in VF4. If you find yourself having
    trouble simply try your moves on the practice mode, commands section.
    You'll get the hang of it after a while. So without further ado, here is
    the character FAQ of Sarah Bryant.
    
    ============================================================
    
    2. Background of Sarah Bryant
    -o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-
    Sarah Bryant
    Country of Origin: USA
    Sex: Female
    Blood Type: AB
    Job: College Student
    Hobby: Sky Diving
    Height: 5'8"
    Weight: 121 lbs.
    Bust/Waist/Hips: 35/22/35
    Fighting Style: Jeet Kune Do
    Past VF Games: VF, VF2, VF3
    Relations in VF4: Jacky Bryant (brother), Vanessa Lewis (???)
    Stage in VF4: What seems to be a resemblence of Rome, fighters fight on
    a slab of stone surrounded by stone gaurd railings, that can be broken
    when a character is slammed into it, lightning strikes statues and
    stractures as you fight
    
      After regaining her memory and returning home to a normal life, Sarah
    still had lingering doubts. Although her brainwashing had been
    incomplete, her desire to defeat Jacky had been overwhelming. Was there
    some part of her, then, that also wanted to fight her brother? Before
    long she received a call from her brother informing her that he planned
    to enter the Fourth Tournament. Hoping to regain her former life back
    completely, Sarah entered the tournament as well, determined to defeat
    her brother and put the past behind her.
    
      Her brother, Jacky, had no means in entering the Tournament in the
    first place, He wanted to continue his life as a Indy Race Car Driver.
    After a series of attacks on his crew, he was forced to enter the Fourth
    World Tournament, so that these attacks will stop, thus calling his
    sister stating he was going to join.
    
      A new face has appeared in the 4th World Fighting Tournament, that of
    Vanessa Lewis. Vanessa got word that J6 (Judgment 6) was going after a
    woman named Sarah Bryant and entered the Tournament to protect her from
    harm. Vanessa was previously raised in J6 and knows what they are
    capable of doing harm.
    
    J6's intentions were that to, take Sarah Bryant and transform her into a
    new, complete, form of Dural...
    
      Sarah is a student of Jeet Kune Do, she fights with quickness but not
    a lot of power and relies on swift movement in taking down her opponent
    with punishing kicks, her most devastating stance is the flamingo,
    capable of pulling off numerous of attack and throws. Sarah Bryant is
    suitable for begineers in VF4.

    4. Fighting With and Against Sarah Bryant
    With:
     As stated earlier, Sarah is known for her lightning fast kicks and
    ability to pull off alot of combos with that talent. She is good against
    slow fights that may use throws alot or are left in the open, key thing
    - don't hesitate while playing as Sarah. Try to be a good fighter (or
    cheap in this case) by never leaving the opponent open for an attack, in
    other words, stay of their ass. If you want to pull off a move such as
    the Gatling Kick Beat, i suggest you stagger the foe for to give you
    enough time to set up the attack.
    
    Against:
     Guard her combos when you can, after she is done with her sequence
    attack with your own combos or attacks. Mid and low range reversals work
    well to stop her. Also, alot of power would help out as well, throws are
    a must while facing this brutal fighter. If you fight against another
    human opponent, it may take them time to setup devastating attacks, and
    thats when you can attack, not leave her open. I found myself getting
    frustrated because i wanted to use the Gatling Kick Beat, but i left
    myself open too long to input the command.
    
    -Fighters to watch out for as Sarah-
    Aoi Umenokouji: vast areas in reversals and grab n' snap moves
    
    Jeffery McWild: blocks sometimes and then deals alot of damage
    
    Shun Di: small and may miss some high kicks
    
    Jacky Bryant: swift kicks and punishing blows
    
    Akira Yuki: CHEAP! blocks most of the time while pulling off combos,
    once you are done he deals some damage and keeps on hitting you while
    falling
