    Lion
    
    MOVE NAME                     MOVE MOTION              LEVEL
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Shot Thigh                    d/f+K                    M, C.Down
    (dantai)
            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
    (juuchousenshou)
            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
    (sentenkuukyaku)
            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
    (sentenkuukyaku) 
            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
    (senkyuutai)
            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
    (rensenkyaku)
            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
    (senpuutai)
            "Happy Dance".  Lion can probably be thrown if the move
            is blocked.
    
    Hang'em High Kick              u+K, K                   MH, Down, AI
    (katoutai)
            Does a heel kick after the Happy Dance.
    
    
    Axe Blade                      f, f+K, K                MM
    (fujinrentankyaku)
            A toe kick followed by a leaping kick.  The second kick
            comes out extremely slow.
    
    
    Squeaky Thighs                 d+K                      L
    (attai)
            Shifts stance. 
    
    Forward Sweep Legs             d+K, K                   LL, Down
    (zensoutai)
            Shift stance.  Recovers low.
    
    Climbing Spin Kick             d+K, K+G                 LH, AI
    (tousentai)
    
    
    Whirlwind Ear Slap            f+P+K                    H, M.Down
    (soujisenpuu)
            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
    (taizansoukoushu)       
            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.
    
    Sweeping Hand Proceeding 
        to Steal                  d+P+K                    L, C.Down
    (touhosoushu)
            Lion swipes at the opponent's ankles.  You must start this
            move with Lion standing.  Will not work if Lion is already
            crouching.      
    
    
    Sweeping Backhand Proceeding
         to Steal.                 d/f+P+K                 L, Down
    (touhohaisoushu)
            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.

            Lion does a huge stretch and gives an one-handed uppercut.
    
    
    Hand in the Scrub Bowl         f+P+E                    H
    (mabanshu)
            "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.

    (shahoshasousui)
            Shifting on the axis, Lion hits the opponents ankles with
            both hands.  If the opponent is not moving, this move does
            not hit.
