U = up (walks to background)
D = down (walks to foreground)
F = forward 
B = Back 
F,F = dash forward
B,B = dash back (In Blodia's case, "float" back =D)

A1 = attack 1
A2 = attack 2
J = jump
G = guard



IV. WHY USE BLODIA?
-I'll put the disadvantages first then the advantages. These are based on facts and 
my personal opinions

DISADVANTAGES:
-Blodia has only a few moves compared to the other robots.
-Blodia has only 3 long range projectile that goes full screen. (All 3 are item based 
attacks which has a limited number of use.)

ADVANTAGES:
-Although Blodia has only a limited number of moves, all of them are highly usable. In other 
words, Blodia has no crappy moves.
-Most of Blodia's moves does heavy and mono damage (red, non-repairable damage)
-The 3 item based attacks of Blodia are highly effective. (I'll explain why in the 
Moves section)
-Blodia's attack can quickly diminish your opponents armor (even when they are blocking)
-Blodia's Final Attack is fast and can be used to "catch" an opponent in the air. 
(i.e.when your opponent is descending from a jump)



V.BASIC/SPECIAL MOVES, COMMAND, DESCRIPTION, TIPS & RATINGS
-My ratings are 1% being the lowest and 100% being the highest.
-Decrease in Armor Gauge depends on the character. Some robots have
strong armor (i.e. Wiseduck), Some are average (i.e. Kikaioh), some have weak armor 
(i.e. Diana 17). The Armor gauge decrease I refer to in this section is based on the averge. 
-Take note that Blodia is like an alternate version of Kikaioh. Some of their moves are similar.
-Before continuing, it is best if you first read the Tech romancer basic faq and movelist 
made by Jeff "CJayC" Veasey so you'll get the hang of the basics. I also used some the terms 
he used in his faq.


OIUSA (Chase & Kill)
Command = A1+J or A2+J
Description = Blodia jumps on a downed opponent and hits him/her 3 
              times.
Tips = Immediately do this move when your opponent is about to crash to
       the ground, so you'll have a higher chance of hitting him/her.
     = This move does mono damage and decreases the armor of your 
       opponent by 6%
     = Although this move does only minimal damage, its a nice follow-
       up.
Rating = 80%
    
VULCAN
Command = A1 or A1,A1
Description = Blodia kneels and fires 3 Vulcan shots in succession. If     
              A1 is pressed 2 times, Blodia will shoot 6 Vulcan shots 
              in succession.
Tips = This moves is best used in mid range due to its limited reach.
     = Vulcan automatically follows your opponent. So if your within 
       range, you can hit an opponent while he/she is side stepping or
       performing a dodge attack.
     = This is Blodia's fastest but weakest move (it causes small and 
       repairable damage) and should only be used to interupt your   
       opponent out of a move he/she is doing.
Rating = 75%

TAI-KARA VULCAN (Ground to Air Vulcan) 
Command = B+A1 or B+A1,A1
Description = Blodia points his arm at the sky (45 degrees angle) and
              shoots 3 rounds of Vulcan in the air. Blodia shoots 6 
              rounds if A1 is pressed twice.
Tips = This is Blodia's fastest anti-air move. But you shouldn't rely
       on this move for damage because it is pretty weak.
     = Good to use on those people who like to jump at you.  
Ratings = 70%

BLODIA UPPER
Command = F+A1
Description = Blodia puts one foot forward and gives the opponent an 
              uppercut tha sends them high up in the air.
Tips = Slow start up. So use this if your sure the opponent is open.
     = Does decent damage and opens up tons of combos ability since 
       it floats your opponent very high.
     = You should also note the recovery of this move is very slow
       and in the event your opponent blocks this move, be prepared 
       to take a beating.
     = After Blodia Upper connects, immediately follow up with Full 
       Metal Charge to juggle them in the air. 
Rating = 80%

IRON NAIL
Command = B, F+A1
Description = Blodia extracts his Wolverine claws then pokes the enemy
              with it, leaving them stunned.
Tips = Slow start up, fast recovery.
     = People tend to under estimate this move. Iron nail has a very
       good reach (not too long but long enough) and upon impact, opens 
       up a dozen of combo opportunities. (Planet smasher anyone? :P)
     = This move stuns the opponent for a short time, so your reaction  
       should be FAST.
     = No decrease in Armor Gauge.
Rating = 75%
        

BLODIA PUNCH
Command = Near opponent, A1,A1,A1
Description = Blodia gives the enemy the ol' 1-2-3 punch.
Tips = Decent speed and damage, and it only cause mono damage.
     = When all 3 punches connect (blocked or not blocked), you'll
       be able to chip off 11% from your opponent's armour gauge.
     = After the 3rd punch, follow it up with a Ouisa for added 
       damage.
     = This move looks exectly like Kikiaoh's "Kikaioh punch".
Rating = 85% 

GATLING ROD
Command = while dashing, A2
Description = Blodia dashes then extracting his Wolverine-like claws,
              punches the enemy for a 6 hit combo then sending them 
              flying across the screen.
Tips = Overall, this is Blodia's best move.
     = Good damage (causes mono damage only) to the enemy's damage bar
       and armor gauge.
     = This move combos for 6 hits, decreasing 11% of your opponent's 
       armor even when they block this move.
     = Even when blocked, opponent suffers tick damage not only to 
       their damage bar, but their armor gauge as well.
     = Fast start up and fast recovery.
     = Puts a good distance between you and your opponent, so you don't 
       have to fear any retaliation when they block this move. 
       Nonetheless, If you think your opponent is going to retaliate,   
       let him/her eat some Vulcan. =D
Rating = 100%  

GIGA CRUSH
Command = A2
Description = Jin Saotome shouts "Dynamite!" then a small explosion 
              surrounds Blodia's body, knocking down anyone whose near
              him.
Tips = This move comes out instantly and does decent damage.
     = Any opponent hit by the Giga Crush immediately falls to the 
       floor. You can follow up this move by getting near the downed 
       opponent and doing another Giga Crush. (This move is able to hit
       all grounded opponent)
     = The downside of this move is that it should be executed at VERY       
       close range, but as I've said, Blodia should be used as a
       brawler.
     = DO NOT use this move as an anti-air.  
Rating = 83%

MID-AIR GIGA CRUSH
Command = In mid-air, A2
Description = Jin Saotome shouts "Dyanamite!" then a huge rainbow 
              colored explosion (A perfect 360 degrees I might add)   
              surrounds Blodia's body.
Tips = Mid-Air Giga Crush can hit for multiple times, depending on the
       proximity of the enemy.
     = This move is one of Blodia's trickier moves. You can use this in 
       order to attain air superiority, as long as you perform it at 
       the right time.
     = Slow start-up and slow recovery prevents this move from being   
       the most powerful anti-air move in the game. 
     = The trick to this move is to anticipate when your opponent is 
       going to jump.
     = Since this move has a 360 degrees explosion radius, it means you             
       can hit the enemy anywhere (above, under you etc.) as long as he
       is within the blast radius. You can confuse your opponent by   
       jumping alot(think cross overs and jump-ins) then Giga Crush 
       them to death.
     = The nearer your opponent is to you, the more hits  this move 
       does.
     = You can also use this move to distance yourself away from the 
       enemy. While on the groud, press B,B, then while backing up 
       (note that Blodia's feet is NOT touching the ground) press A2.
       What happens is that Blodia performs the mid air Giga Crush 
       while he is backing up. Cool eh? (at least I thought so) 
Rating = 85%

BLODIA KICK
Command = In mid-air, A1
Description = Blodia pauses in mid-air then dashes diagonally down with
              a flying kick.
Tips = decent start-up but if the enemy is able to block it, your dead.
     = Automatically homes on the opponent. But if it misses, long 
       recovery.
     = When executed, very fast and causes good damge (mono damage 
       only) The damage this move inflicts is worth risking its slow
       recovery.
     = Decreases 10% of your enemy's Armor gauge even when blocked.
     = Looks exactly the same as Kikaioh's "Kikaioh kick".
Rating = 80%

FULL METAL CHARGE
Command = A1+A2
Description = Blodia charges the enemy vertically forcing them upwards.
Tips = This move can be used on the ground or as an anti-air attack.
     = You can pull out a miximum of 6 hits from this move. Decreases
       11% of your opponent's Armour if it is not blocked and 4% if it 
       is blocked.
     = Highly damaging move (also causes mono damage only). Good   
       juggling move.
     = decent startup but slow recovery since you'll be coming down 
       from the air.
     = Must be done at close range.
Rating = 85%

PLANET SMASHER
Command = B,F+A1+A2 (requires at least 1 super bar)
Description = Blodia punches the enemy 4 times then performs the Full
              Metal Charge.
Tips = Highly damaging move, causes only mono damage, decreases 13% if 
       not blocked and 9% if blocked. Blodia's best super move.
     = Always remember once executed, this move instantly comes out. 
     = If you were able to block your opponent's 1-2-3 punch,  
       immediately use Planet Smasher, it will connect 100%!
     = In summary, use this move only after blocking an opponent's 
       attack (as long as your close enough that is).
Rating = 95%

MUTORIKKUSUPORU CANNON
Command = F,B+A1+A2 (requires at least one super bar)
Description = Blodia plants his fist to the ground then a wave of 
              energy shoots from it.
Tips = Long range projectile attack that hits 5 to 9 times 
       depending on your distance from the enemy. 
     = Decent start up but not as fast as Planet Smasher
     = Good damage but half of it is yellow damage (repairable damage).
     = Safe to use because it pushes your opponent to the opposite edge
       of the screen even when blocked.
Rating = 80%

ITEM ATTACK: Yellow - B. BOMB
Command = Slect the big missile icon then press A1+A2+J
Description = Blodia throws a BIG atomic bomb at the enemy causing a 
              big explosion.
Tips = Bomb can travel to the edge of the screen.
     = Good damage but half of it is yellow damage. So if the bomb 
       connects, immediately follw it up with Ouisa or any other move 
       as long as you capitalize on the damage (remember yellow damage 
       heals over time, so attack!).
     = Never use this at close range due to its slow start up.
     = This item attack can be used only once before it is depleted.
Ratings = 75%

ITEM ATTACK: Blue - SUPER 8 BOMB
Command = Select the round-shaped bomb icon then A1+A2+J
Description = Blodia picks up a bomb a throws at the enemy. Upon 
              contact, the bomb ricochets off the enemy then explodes.
Tips = Can be used at close range or long range. But preferably should 
       be used at close range since at close range, it hits 3 times 
       instead of the normal 2 times.
     = Start up is fast enough to use at close range and safe to use
       even when blocked since the bomb will explode a few seconds 
       AFTER it hits your blocking opponent therefore giving you enough 
       time to dish out another attack.
     = Decreases the armor gauge by 2% if it hits 2 times, and 8% if it 
       hits 3 times.
     = This item attack can be used 3 times before it is depleted. 
Rating = 85%

ITEM ATTACK: Red - B. BEAM
Command = Select the gun icon then press A1+A2+J
Description = Blodia backs up a little as a connon appears on his 
              shoulder, then while Jin Saotome shouts "BEEEEAAAMMM!!",
              a stream of plasma energy fires from the cannon.
Tips = Decent start up and decent damage.
     = Best used at mid or long range. The beam travels to the edge of
       the screen.
     = DO NOT use at close range since the start up and recovery can 
       leave you open for an attack.
     = Beam hits 3 to 5 times depending on the distance between you 
       and your opponent.
     = This item attack can be used 3 times before it is depleted.
     = This is the weakest beam-type projectile in the game, but since 
       this is Blodia's only beam type projectile, I'm giving this a 
       high score.   
Rating = 95%               
     
DODGE ATTACK
Command = A1+G or A2+G
Description = A1 version - Blodia side steps then performs a shoulder 
                           ram that sends the opponent FAR across the
                           screen.
            = A2 version - Blodia sides steps then performs the gatling 
                           rod.
Tips = Not much to talk about. Just anticipate the move of your 
       opponent, if your think their going for a projectile based 
       attack, Dodge Attack!!
     = A1 version hits only once and causes more damage than the A2 
       version but has a shorter range. Decreases 12% on opponent's 
       armor gauge even when blocked.         
     = A2 version has same range and causes damage similar to the 
       dashing gatling rod. It is safer to use the A2 version.
     = Both version has fast start up.
Rating = 90 %

FINAL ATTACK
Command: When available press A1+A2+J+G
Description = Blodia extracts his claws, sticks it to the enemy. He  
              then holds the enemy above his head, shoots a few rounds 
              of Vulcan into his/her body, throws him/her in the air, 
              jumps and rams him/her in mid air.
Tips = Blodia's final attack is fast and has good range.
     = You can use this to "catch" your opponent while he/she is 
       descending from a jump or crashing to the ground. (i.e. If 
       Blodia upper connects, until he/she is falling perform the final 
       attack. The best time is if he/she is a inches above Blodia's 
       head.) 
 Rating = As far as Final attacks go, 100%

OVERALL STRATEGY:
-Always remember that Blodia is a brawler and is best used in close range.
-Always be on the offensive when using Blodia. 
-It is good to mix up his moves, dodge attack occassionally.
-Be familiar with the range of all of Blodia's attack to be more effective.
-If given the chance use the Gatling Rod. It causes good damage to the life bar 
and armor gauge even when blocked. 
-If you find an opening, perform the Planet Smasher for mega damage.
