    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ===========================================================================
    I have adapted the techniques in reading other TEKKEN FAQs
    This FAQ will use similar characters used in the said FAQs
    
    Please note that this FAQ will ONLY FOCUS ON ARMOR KING and no other
    characters. I would be adding some information about the other
    characters but not much information would be focused on them.
    
    1 more thing: This FAQ is based on the Arcade version of
    Tekken 5: DR. I would also submit my other arcade faqs to the PSP ver.
    because it would be pretty much the same with the arcade ver.
    
    NOTE: I WILL add PSP ver. of my FAQs, most likely on November '06

                           3. Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                          3.A Similarities and Differences
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    NOTE: THIS PART IS THE AUTHOR'S OWN WORK
    
    Tekken 5 is the original version of the hit 2005 arcade fighting game
    from NAMCO. It's on the PS2 (with special arcade style controller)
    and Arcade. It features original characters from the earlier Tekken
    series like the Mishimas Kazuya and Heihachi, the new JACK model, Nina
    Williams, Paul Phoenix, Yoshimitsu, Kuma and Marshal Law. It also
    returns some characters like Ganryu, Roger(Jr.), Bruce Irvin,
    Anna Williams, Wang Jinrei from Tekken 2. Jin Kazama,
    Bryan Fury, Julia Chang and many more. More importantly
    it includes new characters like the Ninja Raven, the
    Kenpo Killing Machine Feng and the "new" Jun, Azuka Kazama. And it
    also revives the "original" Jin(from tekken 3) as "Devil Jin." Tekken 5
    has a new story wherein you would fight the founder of the Mishima
    Zaibatsu, Jinpachi Mishima, father of Heihachi. Also, Tekken 5 brings
    a new face to the Tekken Series by adding a data card. This card
    enables you to have a win-loss record, rankings, and one of the best
    features... fight money(G) and character cuztomization.
    
    Tekken 5: Dark Ressurection features the same concept of Tekken 5
    but with the theme "RESURRECTION", it has "resurrected" some characters
    like Armor King, Eddy Gordo and the original DEVIL moves for Devil Jin.
    It has more cuztomizations for the characters and it has made the
    color purchasing at a flat rate - 10,000G only. It has more rankings
    than before (5th dan to 7th dan and more ranks). Has some
    improvements on the graphics and sound. New moves for the Tekken 5
    characters. It added borders to the ranking plate. And 2 new characters,
    Lili and Dragunov.

                                3.B The Story 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    TAKEN FROM: http://tekkenzaibatsu.com/tekken5dr/index.php
    
    
    After the conclusion of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, 
    an intense battle between father and son, Kazuya and Jin, 
    took place at Honmaru in the Mishima Zaibatsu headquarters. 
    Jin emerged as the victor and Heihachi turned his back on Kazuya.
    
    "What a pathetic wretch... Worthless coward!"
    
    The battle between Heihachi and Jin began. Filled with anger, 
    his black wings spread, Jin defeated Heihachi. Just as Heihachi 
    thought he was doomed, Jin regained control of himself.
    
    "You have my mother, Jun Kazama, to thank for your life." 
    Jin said as he took flight.
    
    The sounds of battle gave way to silence as Heihachi lay spread 
    out on the ground. The silence was soon interrupted by 
    approaching aircraft.
    The roar of the aircraft increased and the sound of 
    something being ejected was heard. A group of Jacks 
    crashed through the ceiling. At first, Heihachi 
    suspected that Kazuya was responsible for the intrusion 
    but realized that Kazuya was just as bewildered by the sudden attack.
    
    "Why are you here?" yells Heihachi as the wave of Jacks approaches. 
    Heihachi and Kazuya battle waves of Jacks but reinforcements 
    appear as fast as the Jacks are destroyed.
    
    Heihachi starts to lose his breath. Kazuya betrays Heihachi, 
    throwing him into the middle of the army of Jacks, and uses 
    the opportunity to escape from Honmaru. 
    Shortly after, Honmaru is devastated by a huge explosion.
    
    Close by, the battle is watched by a man dressed in black. 
    He raises his hand to his ear and speaks into his radio.
    
    "Heihachi Mishima is dead..."
    
    At that moment, a Jack attacks from behind but it cut 
    in half instantly as the man disappears.
    
    Honmaru is completely destroyed, a raging inferno in it's place. 
    A pile of debris was blown apart as something emerged from the
    earth, unseen.
    
    The next day, news of Heihachi Mishima's death spread rapidly across 
    the globe. Most people believed that Heihachi's death would 
    bring about the end of the Mishima Zaibatsu, but behind the scenes 
    someone else had taken control, and business went on as usual.
    
    A month later, it was announced that the Mishima Zaibatsu will hold the 
    King of Iron Fist Tournament 5.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           4.A Why Choose Armor King?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Before I continue, AK means Armor King... for those who don't know...
                               ---------- 
                               |My Story| 
                               ----------
    Why Did I choose AK? Well, once upon a time in an Arcade not so far away...
    I played Tekken 5 DR and saw AK? "Oh COOL!" I said. So I played as AK for
    some practice. Then a whole gang of Tekken players challenged me. One by
    one they fall... so... This is a calling...
    
    1) I beat the default records for "Greatest Survivors" (7)
    2) I beat a whole batch of challengers (9)
    3) I beat another batch (9 again)
    4) AK looks cool
    5) AK is new
                                -------

                           | For You, the Reader |
                           -----------------------
    Let's break it down...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I.                   T h e                  M o v e s
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Armor King is strong, very good at poking and his specialty, Wrestling(or
    Grappling as you may call it), why bother looking for huge damaging juggles
    if you can just poke and grapple your way to the top? Sounds cheap? YES IT
    IS!! Don't take it negatively! AK is one the most annoying move-set 
    characters in the game. Don't worry, AK has great juggles as well. But 
    the bad thing about AK's moves is there are very few set-up 
    moves(I only found like 2). And his 10 hit combo is soooo bad, 
    it delays in the 5th to end hits, the only saving grace is if you do hit 
    all 10 is that the last hit is unblockable. Also, few lifters too, so your
    AK juggling is all about timing a lifter. ;p good luck with that
    
    If after reading this part you think:
    
    "AK? HA! He's just KING! In ARMOR!"
    
    If you're the same noob who thinks the same thing then exit this FAQ right
    away and come back when you can do King moves while playing AK(and if you 
    do, e-mail me)
    
    ----------------------
    Pros of Moves
    ----------------------
    Poking
    Grappling
    Strong Moves
    Annoying
    Decent Juggles
    AK is VERY different from King
    
    ----------------------
    Cons of Moves
    ----------------------
    Few Lifter
    Few Set-ups
    VERY BAD 10 HIT COMBO(s)

    II.                L O O K S     A N D     S T Y L E
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    AK looks more intimidating than King, King's wrestling outfit(cos.1) is
    lame... he looks like an ordinary wrestler. AK though, looks like a
    champion(cos.2), great costume designs, ARMOR(hehe [cos.1]), a has the
    many things you would want to see in the King cos. Has great equips. And if
    you should ask who he could look like, I would say Siegfried from the Soul
    Calibur series. The only bad thing is though are that the equips are kinda
    expensive, but yet, stylish!
    
    If after reading this you say:
    
    "So... You have AK, who looks just like King, why should I get him if I
    would be buying a King look-alike? Would I be spending G for equips to 
    make him look like King? What's the difference in Looks?"
    
    If you're like the newbie Tekken player who'd ask the same dumb questions
    then don't get AK as your carded character! And exit this FAQ now! And
    come back when you have proof of AK looking exactly like King(if you do, 
    e-mail me... the youtube.com video of King in AK mask dosen't count, I want
    AK looking like King not the other way around!)
    
    ----------
    Pros
    ----------
    AK's not a contender, AK's a champion!
    Wrestling equips
    Knight equips
    VERY CHEAP CARTOON MASK(200K)
    The ARMOR
    
    ----------
    Cons
    ----------
    Kinda expensive

    If not, then I think I've said enough. Again, if you still think AK is
    King in ARMOR who acts the same with nothing different except the ARMOR
    then EXIT THIS FAQ AND COME BACK WHEN YOU PROVE ME WRONG ABOUT MY FAQ.
    
    ===========================================================================
                           4.A.I    A Path of Life
    ===========================================================================
    
    You got Armor King! Great! Now choose a path for your data card life.
    Choose between a path for MONEY, a path for RANKING, a path for ACHIEVEMENT
    and live out the basis of your card life =)
    
    NOTE: this shouldn't be the way you play with your card. I'm just simply
    suggesting a way so that you can have an ease and lessen confusion on
    what you really play like. besides, this just a few of the many 
    possibilities you can do with your card =)
    
    ----------------------
    A Path for MONEY
    ----------------------
    - so you chose to be the greedy one and be rich eh?! here's a few play
    tactics
    
    =============================
    every match counts, if it's a challenger, get the 1000G and save up
    do your best to beat the AI quick extra 225G is also important
    G is the food in your table, without G, you're dead
    don't worry about losing, practice more and win
    =============================
    
    ----------------------
    A Path for RANKINGS
    ----------------------
    - the strongest is always the best, prove yourself the best in the world
    and become from begginer to Divine Fist.
    
    =============================
    during your begginer-kyu days, every battle matters, beat anyone, a
     promotion lies ahead
    at your Dan days, practice is very importnant, never intimidate people,
     simply challenge carded people and work your way higher
    intimidation begins at 3rd-4th Dan so picking on people will just drive
     players away
    losing will always be a problem once they pile up
    demotions are the worst things you should have so always avoid them by
     winning

    Profile
    
    Name: Armor King
    Origin: Unknown
    Fighting Style: Pro Wrestling
    Age: Unknown
    
    Character Story
    The mysterious masked wrestler, Armor king.
    
    With iron armor and a black jaguar mask he is a wrestler 
    shrouded in mystery. His identity and intentions are unknown.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (ooooh... mysterious! - Me)
    
    Maybe NAMCO was saving AK's return for Tekken 6. But thank God they put
    him in DR. I think they were too lazy to think of AK's return or they just
    accidentaly put him in DR.
    
    ===========================================================================
    My own explaination(I got it from reading some posts from Tekken sites):
    ===========================================================================
    OK so in Tekken 2, AK was already dying. In Tekken 3(after King won a
    championship) he went to his locker room for some reason, maybe it was the
    scene of Tekken 2. Tekken Tag has no connection whatsoever to the story of
    AK but maybe has something with the Mishimas. At the beggining of Tekken 4,
    Armor King was killed in a match by Marduk "accidentally"(dosen't seem like
    it was to me..) and King avenged his "death." Then at the beggining of
    Tekken 5, Marduk pissed off King by wearing an Armor King mask and fought
    with it, challenging him wearing the mask. King was so pissed off that they
    had a rematch at Tekken 5. Then at DR, AK just "resurrected." ....

    This will give away the PSP movies and cutscenes of AK! So if you don't
    want to know it yet, skip the SPOILER PART, go to SPOILER END, scroll ahead

    During the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Armor King was faced with Marduk
    who you should beat. Then, Armor King was faced with Jinpachi, who you
    should defeat. After Jinpachi does his weird explosion tornado thingy
    wherein he becomes a huge gust of dust, Armor King leaves the battle area.
    He then saw King. Who says "Master?! Master is that you?!" in the weird
    Lion language. When King ran after Armor King, Armor King gave him a
    Delayed Vertical Suplex, then converted it into a Steiner Screwdriver (or
    in Wrestling, a "Piledriver") driving his head to the rocks of Final Stage
    2. All I could conclude is that, AK has a grudge with King now, not Marduk
    who "killed" him.

    ***************************************************************************
    
    In conclusion... the AK of DR may not be the AK previous Tekken players
    know from Tekken 2, some say it's just King in a costume to avenge the
    disgrace of his master.(which seems impossible because of the ending movie)
    Others say it's still Marduk in a mask.(which also seems impossible
    because of the PSP cutscene) Others say that AK was accidentally put in 
    DR so he has a corrupted story... He's Leaner, Meaner, and has the most
    corrupt story in the Tekken series to date!
    
    Who knows?
    
    Only NAMCO can explain in Tekken 6. Can't wait!

    This is the author's own work
    
    Armor King could look like many famous/infamous people/characters 
    from  certain games, movies, tv shows etc. With the proper custom 
    items put on him. So here are some of my cuztomization look-alikes 
    or as I would like to call it, a Build.

    ***************************************************************************
    
    d+1,4
    
    using d+1,4 will be very helpful in your desperate times
    useful when:
    a) being poked
    b) when you are poking
    
    this is considered the AK parry or counter stance(AK dosen't have a real 1)
    
    after the mid hit which is the knee, do: d/b,D/B+1+2 for big damage
    
    0000000000
    SW = Shining Wizard
    
    WR moves
    choose between WR+3(Jump Kick) or WR+2+4(Cross Jaguar Bomb or Shining 
    Wizard) use when you have big distance.
    
    when fighting "smart" people:
    use WR+3 instead of the SW because they can counter with a crouch
    WR+3 hit mid so they still get hit, time it well.
    
    when fighting "not so smart" people:
    always attempt for a SW
    
    when fighting "unfortunately not very smart" people:
    always attempt for a SW, sometimes, you can even get a CJB
    
    0000000000
    
    instant moves (i)
    instant shining wizard (iSW)
    
    moves like iSW are very hard to master, but indeed very very helpfull in
    times of need. Consider the wins a reward for mastering i moves.
    
    i moves:
    instant Shining Wizard - f,f,f+2+4
    use in a distance much like match starting distance.
    useful when:
    a) all the time
    b) when opponent falls down and tech rolls
    
    0000000000
    
    big swing (BS)
    
    this isn't too tough to master. Once you get a hang of it, it's very
    rewarding. It takes away alot of HP and gives you running distance for
    a SW or WR+3.
    
    big swing = f, hcf+1
    usefull when:
    a) you need distance
    b) when your poking
    
    0000000000
    
    wall set-ups
    
    trap your opponent near a wall and do any of the ff. set-ups
    
    BS near wall (not sure of direction you need to be facing the wall)
    d/b+3~SS,f+4, get short distance, f+4, or repeat set-up
    wall, MD
    wall, CJB
    iSW into direction of wall, once opponent is trapped, crouch grapple or
     - floor grapple
    d/b+3, WS+4, d/b+4, WR+4, rinse then repeat
    d/b+3, u/f(jump), BT+3_BT+1+4
    b+2+3, if near wall, you can start a juggle to the other end, if not then
     - do BT+1+4
    
    0000000000
    
    counter trap set-ups
    
    so your opponent thinks he's smart and traps you near a wall? then time for
    payback with these moves:
    
    d+1,4 once stunned do iSW set-up, rinse then repeat
    d+1,4 once stunned do BS, go for WR+3_SW
    2+4, then start a wall set-up
    d+1,4 once stunned do DDT(d/b,D/B+1+2), then start wall set-up
    
    0000000000
    
    multi-throw arts
    
    this should be used as a last resort, never attempt this for fun. Only
    practice on AI and "unfortunately not very bright" people.
    
    Cobra Clutch
    - to be posted.
    
    0000000000
    
    SS moves
    
    only useful when poking, delay a sec, then do a SS move
    
    SS+2
    SS+4
    SS+3+4
    
    0000000000
    
    Darkness Kick - DK
    
    useful when poking and the iSW set-up, it's unblockable, takes away a
    suitable amount of HP and also gives you enough running or iSW distance.
    
    DK - f,qcf+3
    
    0000000000
    
    Back Turned moves - BT & Jumping(u/f)
    
    good for confusing your opponent and after iSW and tech rolls or after
    opponent falls down.
    
    u/f, BT+1+4_BT+3
    if CH BT+3 then do d/f+2,1,3,2
    
    0000000000
    
    Poking techinques

    just keep varying moves from high to mid to low in any order, finish with a
    grapple
    
    00000000000
    
    tech-roll set-ups
    
    moves to use
    
    d/b+4
    d/b+3
    (1+2),2
    
    CH d/f+2 could only connect with:
    d/b+4
    d+3+4
    u/f+3+4 <-- best
    
    d/b+3 is best connected with ~SS,f+4
    all can connect with d+3+4 for a sure hit
    
    when opponent tech-rolls, start iSW set-up or u/f+1+2 or d/b+4
    
    000000000000
    
    mid-air grappling
    
    useful anytime for a sure amount of HP taken away in a single juggle
    very very useful when fighting large opponents
    
    MD - Muscle Driver - f, hcf+1
    CJB - Cross Jaguar Bomb - WR_f,f,f+2+4
    
    CJB can be used after 3-4 hits on a large opponent but 2-3 on normal size.
    MD should be used after 3-4 hits max. It has no reach, unfortunately.
    
    you can use MD as a counter trap set-up juggle finish. start a set-up
    after successfully doing MD.

    slamming - juggle finish
    
    I coined the term SLAM to mean that a slam is driving your opponent to
    flor of the stage and having a sec of delay done onto the opponent. If
    you look closely you can see the opponent's legs looking like they would
    flip.

                                 6. F A Q s
    ***************************************************************************
    
    Q. Will there be a PSP ver?
    A. Yes, but I have to but it first so I'm still stuck with the arcade
    
    Q. How can I master iSW?! It's so hard!
    A. I cannot assist you here. But just a few reminders that the last f isn't
       F and it's together with 2+4, be aware of your distance and inputting.
       I too am having quite a hard time doing the iSW but consider your new
       strategy a reward.
    
    Q. How do I know the distance between fighters?
    A. Estimate it... all I can give you about stages are some have walls and
       some are infinity, some are shaped some aren't.
    
    Q. How can I parry using AK?
    A. I don't think you can. Use d+1,4 as a parry/counter, it's quick and
       counters well, use it to stop poking.
