MOVE NAME                     MOVE MOTION              LEVEL
Shot Thigh                    d/f+K                    M, C.Down
        Changes stance.  Fancy name for Lion's sidekick.  Same
        properties as VF2: slow to come out, knocks down on counter
        hit, air combo potential if it floats a standing opponent,
        stagger combo on crouching opponent.

Vertical Jumping 
   Puncture Palm               u+P+K                     M, Down, AI
        Changes stance.  After dashing forward and leaning his hips,
        Lion does a huge stretch and gives an one-handed uppercut.

Knee                           f+K                       M, Down
        Change stance.  Air combo time if hits.  If guarded, the
        opponent can retaliate with a high punch.

The Sky is Falling Flash Kick   u/f+K                    M, Down
        Does a kick as he is coming down from a jumping forward,
        Actually quite useful as a down attack.  

Piercing Stretch Legs          d/b+K                     LL, Down
        With one hand on the ground, Lion sends out two low kicks.
        After execution, Lion recovers high, not low.

Moving Spin Kick               K, K                      HH, Down
        A high kick, followed by a heel kick.  Will whiff if the
        opponent does a low attack.

Whirlwind Kick                 u+K                      M, Down, AI, End
        "Happy Dance".  Lion can probably be thrown if the move
        is blocked.

Hang'em High Kick              u+K, K                   MH, Down, AI
        Does a heel kick after the Happy Dance.

Axe Blade                      f, f+K, K                MM
        A toe kick followed by a leaping kick.  The second kick
        comes out extremely slow.

Squeaky Thighs                 d+K                      L
        Shifts stance. 

Forward Sweep Legs             d+K, K                   LL, Down
        Shift stance.  Recovers low.

Climbing Spin Kick             d+K, K+G                 LH, AI

Whirlwind Ear Slap            f+P+K                    H, M.Down
        Lunges both hands in front of the opponent.  Good for attacking
        a drunken Shun getting up from the ground.

The Busy Hand Striking
    the Serene Mountain       b+P+K                    H
        Lion coils back then lunges both hands at the opponent.
        This move will home in on dodging opponents.  Good for
        attacking a rising drunk Shun Di.

        move with Lion standing.  Will not work if Lion is already

Sweeping Backhand Proceeding
     to Steal.                 d/f+P+K                 L, Down
        Like his touhosoushu move.  However, Lion does not turn
        his back as much as the VF2 counterpart and is easier for
        the opponent to counterattack.  You must start this move
        with Lion standing.  Will not work if Lion is already crouching.

Vertical Jumping 
   Puncture Palm               u+P+K                     M, Down, AI
        Changes stance.  After dashing forward and leaning his hips,
        Lion does a huge stretch and gives an one-handed uppercut.

Hand in the Scrub Bowl         f+P+E                    H
        "Marge, you're soaking in it"  Lion dodges around the opponent
        and swipes with a high hand attack.  If the opponent guards
        against the attack, Lion ends up behind him.  This is a five
        hit move.

Dodging Brushing Bash          d+P+E                    L, Down
        Shifting on the axis, Lion hits the opponents ankles with
        both hands.  If the opponent is not moving, this move does
        not hit.

        Lion crouches, turns his back, and sweeps.  Useful for
        attacking dodging enemies.  Recovers low.
