                    DEAD OR ALIVE 2: EIN CHARACTER GUIDE
          Version: 1.5 Author: TripleRaid <tripleraid@base-9.com>
          US Dreamcast versions, should also work for JAP version

=========================================================================

                           ***!!! NOTE !!!***
 I want to let people know that this guide is also compatible with DOA2:
 Hardcore. Hardcore does not really have any new moves in it. But it does
 have new tag moves...so I will try to get those soon also.

     Ok, so I also desided to write a little thing about the man behind
 the "Ultimate Ein Guide". Well lets see here...ah I first started playing
 video games when I was 5 years old, I was playing an Odyessy2 at my gran-
 mothers house. Then you chould say I was hooked on gaming... Forever!

     After tons of diffrent types of games I played I finally desided to
 take a crack at Fighting games. I was in love! Fighting games are so much
 fun it makes sometimes look back at other games that I played and ask
 myself, how chould I have played that!? Well not really but I guess you
 get my point. :)

 [ http://www.base-9.com ]
 This is my personal domain. This mainly just has a ton of my crap on it.
 I have a little bit a gaming stuff up at the moment mainly Capcom vs SNK
 stuff. I might put up some Dead or Alive stuff though. :)

 [ http://www.doaon.com ]
 Here you will meet a really cool guy that goes by the name Wind-X. This
 is the best source on the net for every thing from Dead or Alive to
 Dead or Alive 2 (and all of its other versions). They have a really cool
 Fourm where you will meet alot of cool guys & gals. You might even catch
 me there sometimes. (^_^)

 [ http://www.virtuafighter.com ]
 This website is mantained by a wonderful person by the name of Ice-9.
 I suggest you take a look at his wonderful site.

 [ http://www.gamefaqs.com ]
 Yes! You love him, you hate him (how can you hate him?), but you will 
 never forget him. CJayC runs one of the best gaming sites on the net. 
 You can also find more of my FAQs on his site.

 The first version of the Ein Guide [v1.0]:
 Well this is the first version of the Ein Guide. In this Guide I will 
 try to basicly give you everything you will need to know about useing 
 Ein. This guide is not finished yet. But I do have alot to add to it.
 Just keep an I out on this Guide if you are an Ein lover! :) If you have 
 anything that you feel should be in this Ein Guide then send it too...
 tripleraid@base-9.com and I will add it, I will even make a new section
 if that is what I have to do! I will give you credit. Your name will be
 listed in the Credits section.

 [v1.1]
 I added a little stuff here and there, nothing big. But I am still not
 done with this guide yet. I still have alot to do.

 [v1.2]
 I added some stuff here and their. I also reformated the whole FAQ so
 it should be even easier to find the sections now. :)

 [v1.3]
 Not much this time. I just added some more combo's for Ein that you can
 use. I should have most of the move disciptions done in the next update.

 [v1.4]
 Well I said I would finish all the move disciptions in the next update,
 and I have. Now I still have alot to do...

 [v1.4a]
 Well my buddy Triple Lei made some combo movies for Ein, so I added the
 links into the Guide. Go to the _Combos_ section to find them. Nothing
 else has changed sence v1.4, but expect new thing in the next update.
 
 [v1.4b]
 Well stupid me put the wrong links for the Ein combo movies. I fixed it
 so go download them NOW!
 
 [v1.5]
 Well I finally finished the Ein VS. Computer section. Ans that about it.
 Added a little thing to my Ein Diary.

==========================================================================

2.) I N T R O D U C T I O N

==========================================================================

 Well with all the othe DOA2 movelist that I have I thought I should do
 an even better one for my favorite character Ein. Ein is a very strong
 fighter in DOA2. He is one of the strongest and at some times have moves
 that are as fast as lightning. Lets put it this way, a good Ein player
 can kick some ass! :)

 Why did I choose Ein? Well really because of his strength, and fighting
 style. Plus I think he is a cool guy. Now Ein is not my only favorite
 DOA2 fighter. I also love to play Leon, he is another cool character
 that is very strong. Also another reason I like Ein is because of his
 kick ass song! Vigaku! A matter of fact I am listening to it now! Man
 that song has some good sounding guitars in it. :) Did I say that Ein
 is just a cool dude, I mean who else's hobby whould be chopping Beer
 Bottles? :P

3.) D O A 2   S T O R Y

==========================================================================

 At the end of the 20th century a great leader was murdered. His name was
 Fame Douglas, who was known as the sponsor of the legendary "Dead or
 Alive 1 World Combat Championship". Since his death, the world has become
 chaotic due to the lack of the presence of a great leader . In the midst
 of this choas, the "Dead or ALive 2 World Combat Championship" has been
 announced to take place. However, the true purpose and significance of
 the tournament have been lost with the death of Douglas. Even worse,
 the promoter of the "Dead or ALive 2 World Combat Championship" is
 responsible for Douglas's death. The new promoter is not just a corrupt
 being but one of pure evil. His involvement in the tournament has caused
 terror among the whole world resulting in the infamous Tengu Disaster
 that occurred at the end of the century.

 something important awaits him at the end of his Dead Or Alive 2 battles. 
 Something far greater than even chopping beer bottles.

 The Lightning Fist:
 "The Lightning Fist" technique is something I made up for Ein after
 playing with him for quite sometime. Ein has this great punch that he
 does [b,f+P] that I named "The Lighting Fist" because it is so fast.
 Ok, 

=========================================================================

11.) E I N   V S   C P U   O P P O N E N T S

=========================================================================

 In this section I will write how about beating the CPU opponents. If
 you have a way of beating an opponent also that you whould like to share
 with all the other DoA2 Junkies out their then send it in to me. My
 e-mail address is tripleraid@base-9.com, please give the proper subject
 heading.
 NOTE: All of the CPU opponents are set to the VERY HARD difficulty.

 Ein vs Kasumi:
 ==============
 I now present to you posibly the cheapest character that the computer has
 in it's arrsonal. The computer really is cheap with Kasumi. I will say
 that every time I have to fight here I need to be on the edge of my seat
 so I can try to see what the computer will throw at me, then I try to
 either counter the attack or try to sneek in one of Ein's strong and fast
 moves, mostly b,f+P. I will just tell you to try and counter the moves
 Kasumi throws at you, sometimes you will catch yourself saying "Damn!
 she is so fast I can't counter anything!" I know how you feel, the
 computer kicks it into 'Cheap Mode Overdrive' with here! :) Also I see
 that when I fight here and she knoks we to the ground as soon as I am
 getting up she hits me back down again. Kasumi will also pull out some
 off-the-wall combos on you that seem to come out of know where! She will
 punch you alot (I call it slaping) and make you stager just enof that you
 think you can get out but then she starts punching you some more until you
 hit the ground, then she hits you when you try to get up. I'll I can say
 Is to not give up.

 Ein vs Gen-Fu:
 ==============
 Now this is a very tough battle. The best way to beat Gen-Fu is to
 counter almost all of his attacks. Now you will need to throw in Ein's
 strong moves every chance you get. Gen-Fu is very strong (almost to
 strong). Now he will conter you some during the fight, his counter are
 very strong also. Another thing you should do is, every time you are up
 against a wall you need to do one of Ein's WALL THROWS (look at the move
 list for the move) to do even more damage to Gen-Fu. Try to stay out 
 of Gen-Fu's multi-part throws by repededly pressing the B button.

 Ein vs Tina:
 ============
 Now you have to think that the main arsenal for Tina is here throws, so
 your opponent is going to try to throw you alot (unless there a newbie).
 To esacape Tina's multi part throws press the B button rapidly, this will
 save you lots of times, this also will work for her multi part counters.
 Tina can also do alot of damage with her normal punches and kicks also,
 sometimes you might feel like you can't get away from her. So you just
 keep the free button pressed down and try to maove around her and counter
 every move that she throws at you.

 Ein vs Zack:
 ============
 The main thing you have to worry about when facing Zack is his speed. Zack
 does not rely on throws that much but he does use them alot. His punches
 and kicks will get used the most when facing him so try to counter every
 move that you can, and grab him when you get a chance. Also keep the Free
 button pressed down and try to stay moving all the time. When you knock
 Zack down on the ground and as soon as he is getting up do your b,f+P
 to punch him really hard and fast.

 Ein vs Jann-Lee:
 ================
 Jann-Lee is just about the same if not faster than Zack he is about equal
 with his throws and attacks. He will counter you alot and he is moving all
 the time making him hard to hit. His attacks are really fast and Jan-Lee
 can get really annoying after awhile, because he abuses the punch button to
 much. But just counter every move that you can.

 Ein vs Ayane:
 =============
 I will rate Ayane right up there with Kasumi! She is fast and her attacks
 are even faster! she is moving all the time, and can have some funny looking
 movements that will "mess you up". Just try to stay on your toes and counter
 the moves that she throws at you. When you finally get some licks in DON'T
 STOP! :)

 Ein vs Hayabusa:
 ================
 Hayabusa can be annoying at times because he counters alot and uses his Izuna
 Drop to much, the Izuna Drop also takes a ton of lives away. Hayabusa is a
 pretty fast character and can juggle you alot (he will, 10hits on me), he is
 another charater that seems hard to get away from. His move that he exucutes
 while standing on his hands will catch you off guard. Just keep moving and
 counter, attack everytime you can.

 Ein vs Helena:
 ==============
 Helena is (to me) one of the hardest characters to get away from. Her aray
 of strange powerful attacks will keep you guessing what she will do next.
 Helena is also a pretty fast character and she is always attcking countering
 and throwing you. When I bet her I just call it luck. But try to keep moving
 around and attacking when you get the chance too, also try to counter as
 much as you can.

 Ein vs Bass:
 ============
 Bass is one of the easier characters that you will face. He moves slow and
 his attacks are slow making it fairly easy to counter him. He is really
 strong though, and you will need to use the B button alot to escape his
 multi-part throws.

 Ein vs Leon:
 ============
 Leon can be a pain at times because he can attack you and make you feel
 like you can't escape him. He is another really strong character. His
 moves are not that slow but slower than other characters. His counters
 take a ton of life away and so do his throws. He has alot of multi-part
 throws that you need to press the B button to escape from. Try to counter
 as many attacks as you can.

 Ein vs Lei-Fang:
 ================
 Lei-Fang is another character that can be really annoying and hard to beat.
 here crazy looking style will leave you guessing a bit. She is another
 one of those characters that seems hard to get away from. Here throws
 and counters are very strong and watch out for her multi-part throws.
 Just keep attacking, countering, and moving to try and beat her.

=========================================================================

 Her is something that I find fun doing to my opponents. Close to the
 end of the match when your opponents life is ALLMOST gone and your next
 to an explosive wall. Do your Violent Flames (df,df+S+P) on them. If it
 K.O.'s them then everytime any explosion happends the Blurry affect will
 start making the Dreamcast slow down alot. This makes for an embarising
 slow light show. :)
