=== UPDATES ==========================================================

2002-07-17: Version 1.00 written.

2002-08-11: Updated to version 1.01. A few minor changes and additions.

2002-08-15: Fixed the Japanese names. The kana "a" and the kanji "ura"
            weren't showing up properly.

2002-08-18: Updated to version 1.02. Corrected some move descriptions
            and condensed the combo listings.

2002-08-20: Updated to version 1.03. Corrected Boman's combos. Included
            new section "Frequently Asked Questions". Not a lot of questions
            right now, but hopefully more will be asked over time.

2002-08-31: Updated to version 1.04. Few more minor changes and additions.
            Corrected Natsu's combos.

2002-09-06: Updated to version 1.05. Added "Combo Chain".

2002-09-07: Added "Contacting Me". Finally got myself a new email account.

2002-09-09: Minor corrections. Added "Recommended Tardy Counters" under
            each characters' notes.

2002-09-14: Updated to version 1.06. Added "Character Quotes".

2002-09-29: Added "Bugs and Glitches".

2003-03-13: Updated to version 1.07. Minor additional info on some characters'
            combos, name corrections, etc. This will probably be my final update
            for this FAQ, as the arcade machine is unfortunately no longer
            available in my area - apparently it hasn't been making much
            money because of abuse of the "Free Play" glitch (um, I'm
            partly responsible for that) and as a result, the game has now
            been replaced by some crusty old third-rate side-scrolling
            beat'em up. Oh well, guess it's back to playing Marvel...

=== 1. ABOUT THIS FAQ ==================================================

	Introduction
	------------

Hello! You're probably wondering why I'm writing this FAQ, when there
are already some good ones here on GameFAQs.com. Well, to tell you
the truth, I'm just writing this in an effort to encourage my friends
at the arcades to get into Project Justice. "The game looks cool but
it's too hard", "I don't know any moves", "Nah, I'll play Marvel vs
Capcom 2 instead" - those are just some of the silly excuses they
come up with when I try to persuade them to play this game. Hopefully
this FAQ should put some of those whinings to rest.

The intended target readers of this FAQ are the arcade players trying
this game for the first time. Although most of the information provided
here also applies to the Dreamcast version of Project Justice, I have
left out specific sections of the game which I believe would not interest
the casual player, i.e. Nekketsu Nikki board game, game story,
dialogue translation, detailed character profiles, etc. Also, please
note that this is not a combos FAQ. I have only listed combos that
I frequently use, they are not necessarily the best, or the most damaging.
All those other stuff are covered by other FAQs on GameFAQs.com.

In this FAQ, the names of the characters' special moves are displayed
in Shift-JIS encoding. To view them, you will need to toggle your
browser's settings or if you're using Internet Explorer, download a
Japanese language pack from Microsoft's site. I have tried to keep the
pronounciation of the names as accurate as I can; if you spot any
mistakes then please forgive my ignorance, I am not Japanese nor do
I claim to have any proficiency in the language.

Before we move on, there is one thing I would like to say to the
absolute newbies: DON'T BUTTON-MASH! Although it might be okay in
other fighting games where you can win by just pounding on any button
repeatedly, Project Justice is not so forgiving. Not only does
it make you look like a scrub, it's very likely that you won't make it
past the second stage (especially if the CPU is set on max
difficulty). Take some time to practice real combos - trust me,
they're really not that hard to do.

	Contacting Me
	-------------

There are two ways to contact me regarding this FAQ:

[a] The Project Justice (Dreamcast) board at GameFAQs.com. If you have
    game-specific questions, I prefer that you post them on the board
    instead of emailing me, as the experienced players over there are
    better at answering them than I alone can.

[b] My email address (japow@digitalrice.com). Please keep the following
    guidelines in mind before you email me -

    * Have the words "Project Justice" somewhere in your subject header,
      just so that I know it's not spam.
    * Use English - it's the only language I'm relatively fluent at.
    * Don't ask questions which are already answered in the FAQ.
    * I welcome criticisms, but only constructive ones. Just saying
      the FAQ "sucks" won't benefit either of us. If you disagree with
      something in this FAQ, explain yourself. Put together a strong
      argument and give me a reason to change or fix whatever you
      believe is wrong.
    * Don't ask for permission to put this FAQ in your magazine or
      website - the answer is no. As I've mentioned in the copyright,
      this document is written only for GameFAQs.com.
    * I don't check email daily, so it may take days or even weeks
      before I get around to reading them. Please don't take offence
      if my reply is belated.

=== 2. GAME MECHANICS ==================================================

[Dash and Run]

	As with most fighting games, dash is performed by tapping the
	joystick forward twice. If the joystick is held forward,
	the dash becomes a run. While running, you can do one of the
	following actions:
		(a) Tackle (overhead attack):
			press any punch button,
		(b) Flying kick (overhead attack):
			press HK,
		(c) Sliding kick (must be blocked low):
			press LK.

	You should only use these moves when your opponent's super
	gauge stock is at one or zero (when he/she can't use Team-Up
	or Party-Up Techniques).

[Throw]

	There are four types of basic throws in this game -
		(a) Standing throw:
			press PP while facing opponent who is standing,
		(b) Back throw:
			press PP while opponent's back is towards you,
		(c) Crouch throw:
			press d+PP while opponent is crouching,
		(d) Air throw:
			press PP while opponent is at the same height
			in the air.

	You can tech/escape out of an opponent's throw by pressing
	PP at the same time as they do. Although throws cannot be
	used in combos, there are some moves that will leave you in
	a position where you can easily throw your opponent before he/she
	can react.

[Sidestep]

	Push KK to sidestep away from the screen, d+KK to
	sidestep towards the screen. This manoeuvre is extremely useful
	for dodging projectiles, jump-in attacks, and overheads.
	At close range, you can get behind your opponent if you sidestep
	just before his/her attack connects.

[Fall Recovery/Safe Fall and Rolling]

	To recover from a fall, just push any attack button. If you
	hold forward or back, you will flip towards that direction.

	When you're lying flat on the ground, you can roll by holding
	the joystick in a certain direction. Holding forwards/backwards
	rolls you in that direction while holding down rolls you towards
	the screen. If you prefer not to roll, hold up and you will just
	stand up where you fell.

[Super Armor and Invincibility]

	When characters have super armor, this means that
		(a) they cannot be sweeped, launched or knocked back, and
		(b) their attacks will still follow through even when they are
		    struck by the opponent.

	However, having super armor is not the same as invincibility.
	Super armor only reduces damage - it doesn't eliminate it, and it
	doesn't protect against throws, Team-Up and Party-Up Techniques.
	Most Burning Vigors (and all Team-Up Techniques) grant the character
	super armor during the startup animation.

	Invincibility is different to super armor - when a character is
	invincible, the opponent's attack will go right through him/her.
	An invincible character is invulnerable to everything except throws.
	In this game, there are only three circumstances where a character
	gains temporary invincibility. These are
		(a) during fall recovery (ground, not air)
		(b) during rolling, and
		(c) during startup attack of Party-Up Technique.

[Textbook Combo]

	This is the standard ground combo used by all characters in Project Justice.
	Basically there are four steps to it -
		(1) two light attacks, followed by
		(2) one heavy attack, followed by
		(3) Vigor Starter, then cancel into
		(4) special move/Burning Vigor.

	Some characters can include more attacks into their Textbook Combos.
	For example, in step (2), Daigo can chain a HK after his HP, Iincyo
	can chain another HP from her HP.

	A Textbook Combo does not have to be performed in its entirety -
	once you get to step (2) you have four options:
		(a) continue to step (3),
		(b) skip straight to step (4),
		(c) end the combo with a knockback,
		(d) launch the opponent and follow-up with an air combo.

	Obviously, most players go for option (d), but there are a few
	characters who can actually inflict far more damage if they finish
	their Textbook Combos.

[Vigor Starters]

	A Vigor Starter is any ground move that
		(a) is chainable from a normal heavy attack,
		(b) is performed by direction + heavy attack,
		(c) can be used as a Tardy Counter, and
		(d) can be cancelled into a Burning Vigor
		    or special attack.

	As far as I know there is no official name for it - if anyone
	has a better name I am open for suggestions.

[Overhead Attack]

	An attack that cannot be blocked while in the crouching position.
	Cannot be used in a Textbook Combo, though some special moves
	are also overheads. They also make pretty good anti-air attacks.

[Burning Vigor Attack]

	Project Justice's name for super moves. Some players who
	are weaned on Capcom's Marvel crossover series might have a hard
	time with the qcfx2 moves in this game. My advice: just get used
	to it. Note that unlike the crossover series, most super attacks
	cannot cancel from launchers, knockbacks, sweeps and overheads.

[Launchers]

	Usually df+HP or df+HK, this move knocks the opponent into the air,
	allowing you to jump up and perform an air combo on them. There are
	actually two kinds of launchers - High Launchers and Mini Launchers.
	Most High Launchers cannot be used in a Textbook Combo, but they
	knock the opponent to a ridiculously high altitude, where you can
	perform some very long air combos. Mini Launchers are the exact
	opposite of High Launchers; they don't hit the opponent as high,
	but they can usually be used after step (2) of a Textbook Combo.

[Air Combo]

	An air combo is a combo you perform in the air (no-brainer definition
	there...). As with launchers, there are two types of air combos,
	High Air Combos and Mini Air Combos. According to the Japanese game
	manual, the official names for these are Air Bursts and Short Air Bursts,
	or AB and SA for short. For the sake of clarity, we'll just call them
	air combos, since most English-speaking people call them that.

	Mini Air Combos (or Short Air Bursts) are done after the opponent has
	been launched with a Mini Launcher. They are similar to Textbook Combos,
	but less restrictive. For example, while a lot of characters cannot
	chain LP after LK (or HK after HP) in their Textbook Combos, most of
	them can do so in their air combos.

	There are three steps to a Mini Air Combo -
		(1) Two light attacks, followed by
		(2) One (or two) heavy attacks, then finished with
		(3) Air Combo Finisher.

	A good example is LP, LK, HP, HK->(Special Attack/Burning Vigor).
	This combo works for almost every character except those who can't
	chain same strength kicks after same strength punches, e.g. Hayato,
	Boman.

	High Air Combos (or Air Bursts), which are done after a High Launcher,
	are more complicated to perform than Mini Air Combos. There is no
	particular set of rules to follow for these, but generally it is a long
	succession of alternating light and heavy attacks, and has a slightly
	irregular button-pressing tempo compared to Mini Air Combos. It takes
	some practising to get them right, but they're definitely worth the
	effort.

[Air Combo Finishers]

	An Air Combo Finisher is the last possible move you can execute in
	your air combo. It can be an air knockback (usually performed by
	forward+heavy attack) which can knock the opponent far away or
	straight down. It can also be a Special Attack or Burning Vigor, the
	latter being the most preferred finisher.

[Knockback and Sweep]

	A knockback is just what its name implies - it knocks the opponent
	back, away from where they're standing. A sweep trips the
	opponent down on the same spot where they're standing. Knockbacks
	can be used after step (2) of a Textbook Combo; for sweeps you can
	only do them after step (1), with the exception of certain characters,
	e.g. Daigo, Kyosuke and anyone else who can chain a HK after their HP.

[OTG (Off The Ground)]

	A term used a lot by Marvel crossover players, I prefer to call it
	"kick 'em when they're down". In short, an OTG is when you attack
	your opponent when they're lying/bouncing on the ground, just before
	they can get up or roll. Some overheads and sweeps make good OTG attacks.
	In Project Justice, OTG attacks cannot knockout (KO) the opponent,
	even when his/her health is at zero. Also, OTG attacks cannot be cancelled
	into other moves. The only exception to this rule is Roy's b+HK -> Triple
	Twister combo.

[Tardy Counter]

	While you're blocking an opponent's attack, you can counterattack
	immediately by inputting any command that involves any kind of
	joystick movement (except d+P/K).
	The following are the only moves (with few exceptions) that can be
	used as a Tardy Counter -
		(a) Vigor Starter
		(b) Knockback
		(c) Overhead Attack
		(d) Mini Launcher
		(e) High Launcher
		(f) Special Attack (not command throws)
		(g) Burning Vigor (not super throws)
		(h) Air Combo Finisher (in the air)

	It is not always a good idea to counter with Burning Vigors straight
	away, because some of them have a long startup delay. A good Tardy
	Counter is one that has a fast startup.

[Attack Cancel and Projectile Rebound]

	If both you and your opponent happen to attack at the exact same time,
	sometimes a flash of lightning will appear where the two attacks made
	contact. This just means both attacks cancelled each other out, no
	damage was inflicted at all. With good timing, it is possible to cancel
	out your opponent's projectiles with just one light punch.

	Characters with stick-type weapons (e.g. bat, sword, violin bow,
	racquet, shinai, etc.) can reflect certain projectiles (not Burning
	Vigor) thrown at them. Simply make any attack that involves swinging
	the weapon.

[Team-Up Technique]

	The easily abused feature of the game, the Team-Up Technique is
	performed by pressing LP+LK (for teammate A) or HP+HK (for teammate
	B). This consumes 2 stocks of your super gauge. If it hits the
	opponent, this will call out one of your teammates to do one of the
	following four things -
		(a) A united attack against the opponent,
		(b) Restore a portion of your health gauge "LIFE UP",
		(c) Add stocks to your super gauge "GUTS UP", or
		(d) Both (b) and (c).

	The startup super armor for Team-Ups is instantaneous, and has higher
	priority over most Burning Vigor attacks. However, it is possible to
	throw your opponents before their Team-Ups are activated. Another
	thing you should be familiar with is the range of your Team-Up
	startup attack, as some of them have very short reach.

	If you are caught in an opponent's Team-Up, you can interrupt it by
	pressing LP+LK or HP+HK. This will bring out a teammate from both
	sides and you will have about five seconds to land a single hit on your
	opponent (special moves/burning vigors are disabled, but throws are
	allowed). If you manage to do it, you succeed in stopping the Team-Up.
	If you get hit, or the time runs out, the Team-Up continues.

[Party-Up Technique]

	Performed by pressing any three attack buttons together,
	this can only be used when your super gauge is on maximum level.
	If it hits, this will call out both your teammates and the three
	of you will execute an extremely damaging attack on the opponent.
	The type of attack is dependent on which school your active
	character belongs to. Unlike Team-Ups, Party-Up Techniques cannot
	be interrupted.


=== 3. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ======================================

Q: What is this?
A: Well, it just wouldn't be a FAQ without a question and answer section,
   would it?

Q: If both my opponent and I activated our Team-Up or Party-Up at the
   same time, who would succeed?
A: In the case of Team-Up vs Team-Up, generally it's the person who activated
   his/hers first. This is because Team-Ups negate the super armor startup
   effect of the other person's. On the other hand, if both sides simultaneously
   used Party-Ups on each other, neither side will hit each other because of
   the invincibility startup effect.

Q: This lamer has used the floating Kyosuke glitch and is playing keep-away
   with Cross Cutters. How do I get him down?
A: Sidestep the Cross Cutters, get right under him and do a throw. Otherwise
   you can knock him down by super jumping and using air special moves.

Q: Hey! How come I can't chip my opponent to death?
A: Like its prequel, this game doesn't allow KO by chipping or OTG. As to
   why, don't ask me, I didn't make the game.

Q: Why can't I block when I jump over my opponent?
A: Unlike other Capcom fighting games, your character will not automatically
   turn around in the air when you jump to the other side of the opponent -
   this means you can't air block any attacks during this short period of time.
   A popular strategy among skilled players is to dash under the opponent
   when he/she jumps and then attack from behind before he/she lands.


=== 4. CHARACTERS ======================================================

	>> Taiyo HS <<

Party-Up Technique:

	ファイナルシンフォニー (Final Symphony)

		Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step.
		A trio version of Kyosuke's Last Symphony. All three
		members of your party gang up on the opponent. This
		Party-Up is used by Kyosuke, Hinata, Batsu, Burning
		Batsu and Vatsu. Has good recovery time if blocked.

	騎馬落とし (Kiba Otoshi)

		Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step.
		The rest of Taiyo's members (Iincyo, Ran and Hayato) use
		this as their Party-Up. The three members of your party
		carry the opponent on their backs and spin high into the
		air, with the opponent landing head-first on the ground.
		Good as an anti-air, but not very damaging.

		/Basic Moves/

Vigor Starters:
	f+HP

Overheads:
	b+HP
	b+HK (knocks opponent down)

Knockbacks:
	f+HK

High Launchers:
	df+HP
	qcbx2+P

Mini Launchers:
	df+HK

Sweeps:
	d+HK

Air Combo Finishers:
	f+HP
	f+HK
	qcf+P
	qcf+K
	qcfx2+P
	qcfx2+K

		/Special Moves/

気合弾 (Kiaidan)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Just your average projectile attack. Comes out fast, easy to
	use and abuse. Strength of P determines distance.

ガッツアッパー (Guts Upper)
	dp+P

	Batsu charges forward with an uppercut. Good for finishing
	Textbook Combos, but not recommend as an anti-air attack.

三日月キック (Mikazuki Kick)
	qcb+K

	Crescent kick knockdown attack. Although it has short recovery delay
	and can be used in a Textbook Combo, this move's not particularly
	powerful.

流星キック (Ryuusei Kick)
	(in the air) qcf+K

	Very fast dive kick. Excellent surprise move, but the downside
	is its steep trajectory and the long recovery delay if blocked.
	If it hits the opponent, he/she will be knocked back.

		/Burning Vigors/

全開気合弾 (Zenkai Kiaidan)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Kiaidan. Good damage, almost impossible
	to Tardy Counter and very easy to combo into. The air version
	is best used as a counterattack move when jumping over an
	opponent's projectile attack.

全開ガッツアッパー (Zenkai Guts Upper)
	qcbx2+P

	Super uppercut/launcher. Extremely slow startup,
	cannot connect inside combos. Don't even bother using
	this against (smart) human opponents.

全開流星キック (Zenkai Ryuusei Kick)
	(in the air) qcfx2+K

	Powered version of Ryuusei Kick. No recovery delay even if
	blocked. Won't knock opponent back. Against a Kyosuke player,
	this move is best used immediately after you recover from his
	Double Gen'ei Kick air combo (after he does the additional
	Gen'ei Kick, he won't be able to block until he lands on the
	ground).

		/Team-Up Technique/

W気合弾 (Double Kiaidan)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 3 steps. Your
	character and Batsu both fire a Zenkai Kiaidan at your opponent.
	Long range, but also long recovery delay if blocked.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or	LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HK Knockback or df+HK Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LP, LP, HK, f+HP -> (dp+HP/qcfx2+P)

	Batsu's basic Textbook Combo. You can use HP instead of HK,
	but it is more susceptible to an opponent's Tardy Counter.
	Also, you can leave out f+HP if you think it will leave you too
	open for a Tardy Counter.

<2> d+LK, d+HP, df+HK ^ [LKx2, HP, HK, (f+HP/f+HK/qcf+P)]

	A simple Mini Air Combo. You can also finish with Zenkai Kiaidan
	but personally I would save my super stocks for something else.

<3> (df+HP/qcbx2+P) ^ [HP, (LPx2,HP)x2 -> qcfx2+P]

	A rather easy High Air Combo to perform. Perhaps the only difficulty
	is getting either one of the high launchers to connect - Batsu's
	df+HP has a pathetically short range (hard to use as Tardy Counter),
	and only a fool or newbie would get hit by Zenkai Guts Upper.

<4> (df+HP/qcbx2+P) ^ [HP, (LPx2,HP)x2, LK, LP, HP, f+HK]

	An alternative to the previous combo. Use this if you have trouble
	getting the Zenkai Kiaidan to connect.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
  Air: f+HK

* Batsu does his df+HK launcher from a crouching position. This makes
  it a pretty good Tardy Counter as he can go under most standing attacks.

* In the air, f+HP knocks opponents down to the ground. f+HK only
  knocks them across a short distance, but it does more damage than
  f+HP.

		/Special Moves/

気合弾 (Kiaidan)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Has a longer range than original Batsu's Kiaidan.

バーニングエルボー (Burning Elbow)
	dp+P

	Batsu leaps upwards with a burning punch. More damaging
	than Guts Upper, and decent as an anti-air move. Recovery
	delay is slower than Guts Upper though. Batsu has super armor
	during the startup animation.

三日月キック (Mikazuki Kick)
	qcb+K

	Almost the same as original Batsu's, except that if blocked
	Batsu will be able to attack before the opponent can. If it
	hits it won't knock the opponent back.

彗星キック (Suisei Kick)
	(in the air) qcb+K

	Does a bit more damage than Ryuusei Kick. Note that the
	joystick motion is qcb, not qcf. Like Ryuusei Kick, there
	is a long recovery delay if blocked. But unlike Ryuusei Kick,
	if this move hits, it will not knock the opponent back.

		/Burning Vigors/

熱血全開気合弾 (Nekketsu Zenkai Kiaidan)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Same as original Batsu's Zenkai Kiaidan, only this one sets the
	opponent on fire.

全開ガッツアッパー (Zenkai Guts Upper)
	qcbx2+P

	Exactly the same as Batsu's, no improvements whatsoever.

全開彗星キック (Zenkai Suisei Kick)
	(in the air) qcbx2+K

	Same as Zenkai Ryuusei Kick.

忌野流 モズ落とし (Imawano-ryuu Mozu Otoshi)
	qcfx2+K (usable in the air)

	Unblockable super throw. Good damage and excellent as a
	surprise move. Unfortunately it can't be used in a Textbook
	Combo, and the range is short.

		/Team-Up Technique/

W気合ビーム (Double Kiai Beam)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 3 steps.
	Double beam attack. Surprisingly it does less damage than
	Double Kiaidan.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK
		Note: Burning Batsu can't chain (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HK Knockback or df+HK Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

<4> (df+HP/qcbx2+P) ^ [HP, (LPx2,HP)x2, LK, LP, HP, f+HK]

	Same as original Batsu's combos.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
  Air: f+HK

* A better choice over original Batsu, though I can't say I like his
  new look... When fighting against human opponents, use this Batsu.

* To unlock Burning Batsu in Free Mode, first you have to play the
  Taiyo HS storyline in Story Mode and in the second episode, lose the
  first round to Akira. After that just finish the story (without losing)
  and he will become available in Free Mode.

* Here's a useless but interesting game bug: if you want Burning Batsu
  to have super armor for his standing throw, do the joystick motion for
  Burning Elbow and then quickly push both punch buttons.

		/Special Moves/

気合弾 (Kiaidan)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	The only special move that Kurow imitated from Batsu. No particular
	difference to the real Kiaidan.

闇神楽 (Yamikagura)
	qcb+P,P,P

	Fast swiping attack. The third hit knocks down the opponent, which
	gives you an opportunity for an OTG.

六腑突き (Roppu-Zuki)
	dp+P (HP version is chargable)

	Vatsu dashes forward with a disembowelling strike. Only LP Roppu-Zuki
	can be used in a combo, and it can only cancel after HP or d+HP.
	For HP Roppu-Zuki, hold down HP to charge for more hits.
	Not recommended because of its slow startup and recovery delay if
	blocked.

夜叉車 (Yasha-Guruma)
	qcf+K (usable in the air)

	Identical to Kurow's Yasha-Guruma.

		/Burning Vigors/

暗黒気合弾 (Ankoku Kiaidan)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Identical to Batsu's Zenkai Kiaidan.

暗黒闇神楽 (Ankoku Yamikagura)
	qcbx2+P

	Powered version of Yamikagura. Has a fast startup, deceptively long
	range, and only the last hit can be successfully Tardy Countered.
	Doesn't deal a lot of damage, though.

		/Team-Up Technique/

暗黒W気合弾 (Ankoku Double Kiaidan)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 3 steps. Exactly
	the same as Batsu's Double Kiaidan.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HP/f+HK Knockback or df+HK Mini Launcher or Special Move/BV

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> LP, LK, HK -> qcbx2+P, qcf+HP

	Because Vatsu doesn't have a Vigor Starter, he follows a
	different combo chain to Batsu. The HP Kiaidan at the end of the
	combo will hit your opponent in the legs when he/she recoils from
	Ankoku Yamikagura.

<2> d+LP, LP, HP, qcb+(Px3), b+HP (OTG)

	You can use other attacks to OTG the opponent, but personally
	I prefer the b+HP overhead because of its lifting effect.

<3> d+LK, d+HK, df+HK ^ [LKx2, HP, HK -> qcf+K]

	A Mini Air Combo. Hold u+K during Yasha-Guruma for more hits.

<4> df+HP ^ [HP, (LPx2,HP)x2, LK, LP, HP -> qcf+K]

	A High Air Combo. Almost the same as Batsu's, except Vatsu
	can finish with a Yasha-Guruma.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
          qcbx2+P
  Air: f+HK

* To unlock Vatsu in Free Mode, just finish the Gorin HS storyline
  in Story Mode.

* Vatsu's standing HP has a longer reach than Batsu's, and very difficult
  to Tardy Counter if used on its own. Use it to hit aggresive
  opponents who are constantly dashing in with LPx2.

* Unlike Batsu, Vatsu's jumping f+HK comes out faster and it doesn't knock
  the opponent back. It's pretty good as an air Tardy Counter, and you
  can also use it as a jump-in attack for your Textbook Combo.

* Vatsu's d+HK is not a sweep, which means you can cancel it into any
  special move or Burning Vigor.

	qcb+K
	qcf+K,K,K
	qcbx2+K

		/Special Moves/

気功掌底 (Kikou-Shoutei)
	qcf+P

	Hinata produces a short-ranged energy burst from her outstretched
	palm. Not really an anti-air move, but it's good for keeping
	jumping opponents back. For HP Kikou-Shoutei, tap HP repeatedly for
	more hits.

昇陽拳 (Shouyouken)
	dp+P

	Standard anti-air attack. Hinata jumps and does a twirl in the
	air. Only LP Shouyouken can be used in a Textbook Combo.
	HP Shouyouken includes a sidestep. Extremely fast recovery if
	attack whiffs (does not come in contact with the opponent).

炎舞脚 (Enbukyaku)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	LK Enbukyaku has her doing a helicopter kick (similar to Sakura's
	Shunpuukyaku from the Street Fighter games) while HK Enbukyaku
	has her doing three flying kicks (like Dan's Dankuukyaku). LK
	Enbukyaku has slow startup delay, but very good recovery time if
	blocked. HK Enbukyaku has fast startup, and pushes the opponent away
	if blocked. Use HK Enbukyaku for Tardy Counter.

連脚弾 (Renkyakudan)
	(in the air) qcf+K,K,K

	Hinata kicks her shoes at the opponent. How she can kick an
	extra shoe (when technically she's only wearing two) is a
	complete mystery. Though you can use it in an Air Combo, don't
	expect it to connect. Best used immediately after you recover
	from an opponent's air combo.

		/Burning Vigors/

必勝連撃拳 (Hisshou Rengekken)
	qcfx2+P

	Hinata rushes forward and does a series of quick punches, then
	finishes with a Shouyouken. A good Tardy Counter move.

螺旋炎舞脚 (Rasen Enbukyaku)
	qcbx2+K (usable in the air)

	Powered version of the Enbukyaku. Though it's a decent anti-air
	move, it's best used as an Air Combo Finisher.

		/Team-Up Technique/

ガッツ百倍 (Guts Hyakubai)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Hinata
	comes in and fills up your super gauge to maximum level.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK
[2]	HP/HK
		Note: HP only chains from LP;
		      HK only chains from LK
[3]	f+HK Knockback or df+HP Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LP, LP, HP, f+HP -> qcfx2+P

	A standard Textbook Combo.

<2> d+LK, d+HK, df+HP ^ [LKx2, HP, HK -> qcbx2+K]

	A Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> [qcb+HK] v df+HK ^ [HP, LP, HP, LK, LP, HP, HK -> qcbx2+K]

	High Air Combo. The jump-in Enbukyaku must make two hits or else
	the df+HK won't launch the opponent.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
          qcb+HK
          qcfx2+P
  Air: f+HK

* To get an alternative version of Hinata in Free Mode, hold down the Start
  button while selecting her.

* Hinata's df+HK is excellent as a Tardy Counter, as it has decent range and
  comes out really fast. However, it can't counter everything (e.g. Kurow's
  Yasha-Guruma). If df+HK doesn't work, try HK Enbukyaku instead.

* After an air throw, Hinata can OTG the opponent with df+HP.

	qcfx2+K

		/Special Moves/

クロスカッター (Cross Cutter)
	qcf+P

	Kyosuke fires two converging projectiles. A very annoying
	zoning move as it is difficult to jump over. Can easily
	be avoided by sidestepping, though.

幻影キック (Gen'ei Kick)
	qcf+K (usable in the air;
	       ground version can chain after dp+P;
	       air version can chain after qcf+P and qcfx2+K)

	A quick somersault kick. A good Tardy Counter move, but it
	has poor recovery delay if blocked.

雷神アッパー (Raijin Upper)
	dp+P

	Kyosuke's Mini Launcher. A bolt of lightning rises from the
	ground. If blocked, quickly cancel into Gen'ei Kick.

幻影ブレーカー (Gen'ei Breaker)
	qcb+P

	Overhead leap attack. This move has no recovery delay, and
	if blocked Kyosuke will be able to attack before the
	opponent can.

幻影ウエーブ (Gen'ei Wave)
	(in the air) qcf+P

	A small wave slash. Chain a Gen'ei Kick afterwards.

空中浮き (Kuuchuu Uki)
	(in the air) qcf+KK (game bug)

	Since this bug is well known and frequently used, it might
	as well be considered a special move. This move makes Kyosuke
	literally float in the air. He can float higher by jumping
	up and inputting the command again. While up there, he can fire
	Cross Cutters (which would come from the ground) or perform
	invisible throws (which the opponent can also do). While it's
	amusing to watch, this bug doesn't really have any practical
	application against human opponents.

Air Team-Up Technique
	(in the air) qcf+LP+LK or qcf+HP+HK (game bug)
Air Final Symphony
	(in the air) qcf+PP+K or qcf+KK+P (game bug)

	Another closely related bug. Unless you want to be branded a
	cheap bastard I don't recommend using these moves against human
	opponents.

		/Burning Vigors/

拡散クロスカッター (Kakusan Cross Cutter)
	qcfx2+P

	Kyosuke fires five converging projectiles. The further the
	opponent, the more damage inflicted. Has a long recovery delay.

スーパー雷神アッパー (Super Raijin Upper)
	qcbx2+P

	High Launcher. As its name implies, it's a powered version
	of Raijin Upper. Compared to Batsu's Zenkai Guts Upper,
	this move has a way faster startup time. The startup is
	very fast, it can be used as Tardy Counter.

ダブル幻影キック (Double Gen'ei Kick)
	qcfx2+K (usable in the air)

	Actually he does two Gen'ei Kicks and then a Gen'ei Wave.
	This move is most often used in air combos.

		/Team-Up Technique/

ラストシンフォニー (Last Symphony)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps.
	Your character and Kyosuke beat the living daylights out of your
	opponent. Long recovery delay if blocked.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	f+HP/b+HP Knockback or dp+P Mini Launcher or (f+HK -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LP, LK, HP, HK, f+HK, dp+P ^ [LP, LK, HP, HK -> (qcf+P/qcfx2+K) -> qcf+K]

	Mini Air Combo. This is the one that everyone uses.

<2> d+LP, LK, HP, HK -> qcf+P (blocked), (run), (repeat / tackle / sliding kick / air throw)

	Kyosuke's Cross Cutter trap. Not really a combo, this is used against
	defensive opponents who like to "turtle" (players who are constantly
	blocking). After you fire the Cross Cutter, run towards your opponent.
	If he/she is crouch blocking or attempting a Tardy Counter, do a tackle.
	If he/she is blocking standing up, do a sliding kick or standing throw.
	If he/she is jumping, do an air throw.
	If you are playing against a skilled Kyosuke player and you're caught in the
	trap, good luck getting out of it. As far as I know, the only way against it
	is by using Team-Up/Party-Up or sidestepping if he tries the tackle or sliding
	kick.

<3> d+LP, LK -> qcbx2+P ^ [HP, LPx2, HP, LP, HP, LP, LK, HP -> (qcf+P/qcfx2+K) -> qcf+K]

	High Air Combo. You have to be pretty quick when cancelling the
	Super Raijin Upper from LK.

<4> df+HK ^ [qcf+PP+K]

	Mega-cheap combo. As I've warned before, unless you want
	to be called a cheapass don't use air Team-Ups or Final Symphony
	against human opponents.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -

		/Special Moves/

疾風の型 (Shippuu no Kata)
	qcf+P

	Knockback strike. LP Shippuu no Kata must be blocked low.
	Be careful with this move as it can be easily Tardy Countered
	by the opponent.

昇龍の型 (Shouryuu no Kata)
	dp+P (chargable)

	Rising uppercut. If used uncharged, it will only hit once and
	the opponent will not be knocked down, leaving Iincyo in a very
	vulnerable position for a counterattack. Don't bother using this
	move in a Textbook Combo.

紫電の型 (Shiden no Kata)
	qcf+K (chargable)

	Flying kick. Like Shouryuu no Kata, the uncharged version will
	not knock the opponent down. However, if blocked (uncharged)
	Iincyo will be able to attack before the opponent can.

破岩の型 (Hagan no Kata)
	qcb+P

	Iincyo sidesteps and does a chop that knocks the opponent down.
	Won't connect in a combo and can be easily Tardy Countered by
	the opponent.

前方転身の型 (Zenpou-Tenshin no Kata)
	qcb+K

	Iincyo does a roll and ends up behind the opponent. Since there
	is a very long delay for her to get up from the roll, this move
	is not particularly useful.

		/Burning Vigors/

演舞披露 (Enbu Hirou)
	qcfx2+P

	Iincyo demonstrates her martial arts prowess with a long series
	of kicks and punches. Despite the number of hits, it doesn't
	inflict a lot of damage. Also, if blocked the opponent can easily
	counterattack after the third hit.

説教攻撃 (Sekkyou Kougeki)
	qcfx2+K

	Iincyo forces the opponent to kneel and then proceeds to tell them
	off. Can't be used in a Textbook Combo, though it is very good as
	a Tardy Counter. Must be blocked low.

		/Team-Up Technique/

委員長のワンポイントアドバイス (Iincyo no One Point Advice)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Iincyo
	restores a bit of your character's health as well as providing
	four stocks to your super gauge.

	Sekkyou Kougeki will only combo after a jump-in attack with HP.

<3> LP, d+LP, LK, HPx2, df+HK ^ [LKx2, HP, HK, f+HP]

	Mini Air Combo. Not very damaging.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HP
          qcfx2+K
  Air: f+HP

* With weak moves and short reach, Iincyo makes a rather poor fighter.
  Probably the only redeeming quality she has is her unique Team-Up
  which has both LIFE UP and GUTS UP effect. If you're going to use her,
  just have her as a partner.

* Iincyo's df+HK launcher cannot hit crouching opponents.

* After an air throw, Iincyo can OTG the opponent with d+HK, b+HP, df+HP,
  or LP Shippuu no Kata. Sekkyou Kougeki also works, but it won't do any
  damage.

* Iincyo is the only character without a High Launcher, thus she has
  no High Air Combos.

		/Special Moves/

フラッシュ攻撃 (Flash Kougeki)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Flash photography attack. HP Flash Kougeki includes a sidestep.
	This is the move that Ran relies on the most. Can be used
	six times before needing to change films. If you try to use
	it again, she will automatically do Film Koukan.

号外! (Gougai!)
	qcb+P (usable in the air)

	Ran tosses the latest edition in the air. Fast recovery
	time and okay as an anti-air, but reach is quite poor.

フィルム交換 (Film Koukan)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	Ran changes films for Flash Kougeki. You can also sidestep
	while you change by inputting qcb+KK (though the animation
	will not be shown).

		/Burning Vigors/

スーパーフラッシュ攻撃 (Super Flash Kougeki)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Multi-hit version of Flash Kougeki. Her main Air Combo Finisher.
	Ground version can only cancel from HP or d+HP.

突撃インタビュー (Totsugeki Interview)
	qcbx2+P

	Ran harasses the opponent with questions and snapshots. Very
	damaging, but the startup delay is worse than Batsu's Zenkai
	Guts Upper. Good luck getting it to connect!

		/Team-Up Technique/

いただきスクープ (Itadaki Scoop)

	Startup attack has no range at all. Ran, your character and the
	opponent all pose for the camera. Though it's not damaging,
	it is very funny to watch. Also, if you're fast enough, you can
	follow up afterwards with an Air Combo.

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LK, d+HP -> qcfx2+P

	If you want to combo Super Flash Kougeki on the ground, this is it.

<2> d+LP, LP, HP, f+HP -> qcb+LP, (throw / Party-Up)

	The throw/Party-Up at the end is not really part of the combo,
	it's more like a surprise move. If your opponent is blocking,
	throw him/her. If he/she tries to attack, use Party-Up.

<3> d+LP, LP, HP, df+HP ^ [LKx2, HP, HK, f+HP, f+HK]

	Mini Air Combo. If the opponent safe falls backwards, quickly dash
	forward, jump straight up and do [LKx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+P].
	The opponent won't be able to block this combo since his/her
	back will be towards you.

<4> df+HK ^ [(LKx2)x3, HP, HK -> qcfx2+P]

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<5> d+LK, d+HK, df+HP, df+HK ^ [LKx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+P]

	Another High Air Combo. You may have to dash slightly forwards
	after df+HP for the df+HK launcher to connect.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
  Air: (f+HP, f+HK)
       b+HP

* If blocked, Ran's df+HP launcher will push opponents away, making
  it difficult for them to counterattack.

* Ran's df+HK launcher comes out very fast and is perfect as a Tardy
  Counter.

* After an air throw, Ran can OTG the opponent with b+HP.

気合キック (Kiai Kick)
	dp+K

	Rising kick attack. LK Kiai Kick is recommended for Textbook Combos
	while HK Kiai Kick should be used against opponents who try to jump
	behind you.

回転竹刀落とし (Kaiten Shinai Otoshi)
	(in the air) qcf+K

	Blockable air throw. Can't be used in a combo, and the opponent
	can tech/escape out of it. The only advantage it has over
	a normal air throw is that it can also hit opponents on the
	ground.

ダブル指導キック (Double Shidou Kick)
	qcb+K

	Hayato does a fast drop kick which has him landing face-down on
	the ground. Long range, but recovery delay is horrible. He has
	super armor while he's flat on the ground, but not while he is
	getting up.

気合ナックル (Kiai Knuckle)
	qcb+P

	Hayato draws back and does a flaming downwards punch. The good
	news is that he has super armor throughout the entire animation.
	The bad news is that the move is still vulnerable to throws and
	Party-Ups, and it has recovery delay if blocked.

		/Burning Vigors/

熱血腕立て伏せ (Nekketsu Udetatefuse)
	qcfx2+P

	Hayato forces the opponent to do push-ups. Used primarily in
	Textbook Combos.

熱血ヤセ我慢 (Nekketsu Yase Gaman)
	qcbx2+K

	Hayato gains super armor for about six seconds. He can perform
	the command again and again for more time (the effect is cumulative).
	The only problem with this move is that it has an incredibly long
	startup delay.

熱血クロスカウンター (Nekketsu Cross Counter)
	qcbx2+P (chargable)

	Hayato does a straight punch. He has super armor throughout the
	entire animation. Excellent Tardy Counter attack, it is effective
	even against moves which normally can't be countered. The charged
	version cannot be avoided by sidestepping.

熱血風車 (Nekketsu Fuusha)
	qcfx2+K

	Hayato propels himself towards the opponent. Good as a medium
	range Tardy Counter.

		/Team-Up Technique/

熱血気合砲 (Nekketsu Kiaihou)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Hayato
	brings out your character's hidden potential, which is then
	unleashed as a projectile. Interesting to watch, but not very
	damaging.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LK, d+LK)
		Note: Hayato can chain LP after (LK, d+LK)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HP Knockback or df+HK Mini Launcher or (b+HP/f+HK -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> LK, d+LK, LP, HP, b+HP -> dp+LK ^ [qcf+P]

	Hayato's Textbook Combo. For Nekketsu Shinai to connect, you have
	to input the command immediately after the first hit of Kiai Kick.
	If the opponent does a Tardy Counter after d+LK, quickly cancel
	into Nekketsu Cross Counter.

<2> d+LK, d+HK, df+HK ^ [LPx2, HP -> qcf+P]

	Mini Air Combo. Not a lot of hits, but it does do decent damage.

<3> df+HP ^ [HK, LPx2, HK, LKx2, HP -> qcf+P]

	High Air Combo. Does a hell of a lot of damage. Remember to push
	LKx2 immediately after HK or you will miss.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
          df+HP
          qcbx2+P
          qcfx2+K
  Air: f+HP

* Hayato's standing HP has a very long range and good recovery. It's also
  rather good at reflecting projectile attacks.

* Hayato's df+HK launcher is similar to Batsu's, it can go under most
  standing attacks.

* Hayato's df+HP launcher has a slow startup, but it covers quite a
  distance and has fast recovery time.

* Here's a useless but interesting game bug: if you want Hayato to have
  super armor for his standing throw, do the joystick motion for Kiai
  Knuckle and then quickly push both punch buttons.

	>> Gorin HS and U <<

Party-Up Technique:

	熱血大車輪 (Nekketsu Daisharin)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. All three
	members of your party form a giant wheel which tramples the

超剛速球 (Kyougou Sokkyuu)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Shoma throws a baseball at the opponent. Very long range, but
	horrible recovery delay and is easily avoided by sidestepping.
	Air version is good for stopping dashing opponents.

大回転打法 (Daikaiten Dappou)
	dp+P

	Spinning bat attack. Fast startup, but long recovery delay.
	Use it for Tardy Counters.

一本釣り打法 (Ippon-Zuri Dappou)
	qcb+P

	Blockable command throw. Long range, but slow startup and
	recovery.

ナイアガラドロップ (Niagara Drop)

	Shoma leaps in the air and does a downwards stomp. Difficult
	to block, especially if Shoma is right above the opponent.

	it hits the opponent at the right distance.

超殺人スライディング (Chou-Satsujin Sliding)
	qcfx2+K

	Super killer slide attack. Must be blocked low. A good
	Tardy Counter. However, Shoma is extremely vulnerable
	to knockback attacks during the startup (when he leaps
	into the air).

		/Team-Up Technique/

グランドスラム (Grand Slam)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step.
	Your character knocks the opponent towards Shoma, who
	then bats a home run for an incredible amount of damage.
	Okay as an anti-air.

* Shoma's f+HP knockback can be cancelled into a special move or Burning Vigor.
  This can be used to catch out opponents who try to Tardy Counter it.

* Shoma's b+HP is a unique overhead attack. It stuns the opponent long
  enough to follow up with a Textbook Combo.

* After a standing or air throw, Shoma can OTG the opponent with

		/Special Moves/

入魂サーブ (Jikkon Serve)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Natsu serves a volleyball. The ball travels at a downwards angle,
	then rebounds off the ground. Will miss if opponent is at very
	close range.

スライディングレシーブ (Sliding Receive)
	dp+P

	Natsu's Mini Launcher. Must be blocked low. Fast startup, but
	horrible delay if blocked. When fighting against CPU-controlled
	Natsu, just keeping doing a crouching throw after blocking her
	Sliding Receive.

回転レシーブ (Kaiten Receive)
	qcb+P

	Natsu's High Launcher. Only LP Kaiten Receive can be used in a combo.

完全ブロック (Kanzen Block)
	(in the air) dp+P

	Air counter move. I can't see any practical use for this. If you're
	going to counterattack in the air, forget about his move and just
	Tardy Counter with f+HP or f+HK.

特訓スパイク (Tokkun Spike)
	(in the air) qcb+P

	Great Air Combo Finisher. Has a better chance of hitting the opponent
	than Fire Serve.

		/Burning Vigors/

ファイヤーサーブ (Fire Serve)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Jikkon Serve. Both startup and recovery are
	fast, so it can be used in a combo or as a Tardy Counter.

魔球・天井サーブ (Makyuu Tenjou Serve)
	qcbx2+P

	Natsu tosses a vollyball high into the air, which then splits
	into three and bombards the opponent. This move can easily be
	seen a mile away, and what's worse is that it can be sidestepped.
	Waste of a super gauge if you ask me...

		/Team-Up Technique/

ファイト100倍 (Fight Hyakubai)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Like Hinata,
	Natsu comes in and gives some words of encouragement to your character,
	filling the super gauge to maximum level.

		/Combo Chain/

<2> d+LP, LK, HK -> dp+HP ^ [LPx2, HP, HK -> qcb+P]

	Mini Air Combo. Use this if your super gauge is empty. After the
	combo you can catch your opponent off guard by hitting them
	with Sliding Receive again before they land.

<3> d+LP, LK, HK -> qcb+LP ^ [LKx2, (LPx2,HP)x2, HK -> qcb+P]

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

* When fighting against human opponents, you can be almost certain that
  they will be crouching most of the time, in anticipation for Sliding
  Receive. Just hit them with your b+HP overhead until they stand up,
  then quickly launch them with d+HK -> HP Sliding Receive.

* After an air throw, Natsu can OTG the opponent with LP Kaiten Receive.

Sweeps:

Air Combo Finishers:
	f+HP
	f+HK
	qcf+P
	qcf+K
	qcfx2+K

Other Basic Moves:

	b+LK,LK,LK,LK

	Not really a combo, since the third LK can be blocked.

		/Special Moves/

ロングシュート (Long Shoot)
	qcf+K

	Roberto kicks a soccerball. HK Long Shoot has the ball travelling
	at a slightly upwards angle.

シャイニングセーブ (Shining Save)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	LP Shining Save is Roberto's main Air Combo Finisher. Ground
	version knocks standing opponents down. Air version has Roberto
	slamming the opponent into the ground and kicking his/her head.
	After the air version, you can OTG your opponent with LK Long Shoot,
	Sliding Kick or LK Bakuretsu V-Goal.

パーフェクトキャッチ (Perfect Catch)
	qcb+P

	Roberto produces a glowing vacuum that can cancel out almost any
	projectile attack, including Burning Vigors. It can't catch
	Kyosuke's Kakusan Cross Cutter at close range, though.

オーバーヘッドキック (Overhead Kick)
	dp+K

	Somersault kick. Best used as anti-air or Tardy Counter. If blocked,
	HK Overhead Kick will have Roberto landing behind the opponent.

バイシクルキック (Bicycle Kick)
	(in the air) qcf+K

	Air version of Overhead Kick. Fast and easy to cancel into,
	but Shining Save is a much better Air Combo Finisher.

スライディングキック (Sliding Kick)
	qcb+K

	Roberto sidesteps and then does a sliding kick. Must be blocked
	low.

フェイント (Feint)
	b+KK or
	f+KK

	Roberto, uh, feints. He can't attack while feinting, but the
	opponent will have a hard time hitting him, as he is constantly
	sidestepping. Use this to infuriate human opponents.

		/Burning Vigors/

爆裂Vゴール (Bakuretsu V-Goal)
	qcfx2+K (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Long Shoot. Air version has faster recovery
	than ground version.

爆裂リフティング (Bakuretsu Lifting)
	qcbx2+K

	Roberto knees the opponent into the air and then knocks him/her
	down with a Bicycle Kick. Startup is extremely fast, perfect as a
	Tardy Counter.

		/Team-Up Technique/

トラップWシュート (Trap Double Shoot)
	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 3 steps. Roberto
	and your character kick the opponent around. Long range, average
	damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, d+HK) or (d+HP, HK)
[3]	f+HP/f+HK Knockback or db+HK Mini Launcher or Special Move/BV

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> (LPx2/d+LK), (HP/d+HP), d+HK, db+HK ^ [LPx2, HP, HK -> qcf+LP] v (qcb+K/qcfx2+LK) (OTG)

	Mini Air Combo. Probably the only Roberto combo you'll be using.

<2> df+HK ^ [LK, LP, (LKx2)x3, HP, HK -> qcf+LP] v (qcb+K/qcfx2+LK) (OTG)

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> df+HK ^ [LKx2, LK, LP, LPx2 -> qcfx2+LK -> qcf+LP] v (qcb+K/qcfx2+LK) (OTG)

	Another High Air Combo. You will have to cancel Shining Save
	immediately after Bakuretsu V-Goal, otherwise the opponent will
	recover quickly and be able to block it.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
          qcbx2+K
  Air: f+HP

* Shining Save, Shining Save, Shining Save. Just three good reasons why
  everyone uses Roberto. Shame that most of the Roberto players I know
  never bother to learn how to use his other moves effectively, which is
  probably why they always get their asses kicked when I play Kurow.

* If blocked, Roberto's db+HK launcher will push opponents away, making
  it difficult for them to counterattack.

* Roberto's df+HK launcher comes out very fast and is perfect as a Tardy
  Counter.

* Roberto's f+HK knockback is a sidestepping attack which can avoid most projectile
  attacks at close range (not Burning Vigor). This means that if he successfully
  hits an opponent who is about to fire, the projectile will actually go past him.

Nagare

	qcf+P
	qcfx2+P

		/Special Moves/

飛び込み (Tobikomi)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Nagare does an aerial dive that travels in a wide arc. Good Air
	Combo Finisher and useful for keeping jumping opponents back.

平泳ぎキック (Hira-Oyogi Kick)
	qcf+K

	A low frog-style kick. HK Hira-Oyogi Kick can be chained twice.
	Must be blocked low.

人工呼吸 (Jinkou Kokyuu)
	qcb+P

	Nagare performs CPR on the opponent. Can only be cancelled
	from standing HK.

		/Burning Vigors/

個人メドレー (Kojin Medley)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Nagare swims in mid-air. Strength of P determines which
	direction he will be heading.
	Ground LP - Horizontal, parallel to ground.
	Ground HP - 45 degrees upwards from ground.
	Air LP - Horizontal in the air, parallel to ground.
	Air HP - 45 degrees downwards towards the ground.

超バタ足 (Chou Butterfly Ashi)
	qcfx2+K

	Nagare's Mini Launcher. Works well as an anti-air move.

		/Team-Up Technique/

シンクロナイズドアタック (Synchronized Attack)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps.
	It's so ridiculous you've got to see it to believe it...
	Does little damage, though.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HK Knockback or df+HP Mini Launcher or (f+HP/b+HK -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> LPx2, d+HK, (b+HK/f+HP) -> qcfx2+K ^ [LPx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+HP]

	Nagare's bread and butter combo, so to speak. Although you can
	finish with qcfx2+LP which does more hits, it would leave you
	in a vulnerable position when you land.

<2> df+HK ^ [(LKx2)x3, LPx2, HP -> qcf+HP]

	High Air Combo. You'd be pretty lucky if you can get the launcher
	to connect.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: qcfx2+K
  Air: f+HP
       f+HK

* Nagare's d+HK is one cheap irritating move. It has long range, must be
  blocked low, hits multiple times, and pushes the opponent away if blocked.
  It will also hit opponents who try to make a jump-in attack. When fighting
  against Nagare players you can be certain that they will be using this move
  all the time. If you think you're about to be on the receiving end
  of d+HK, quickly use a Burning Vigor, activate your Team-Up/Party-Up,
  or use any special move that has super armor startup.

* Nagare's f+HP hits twice and will push the opponent away if blocked,
  making it very difficult to counterattack.

* Nagare's standing throw has a long reach (he leaps forward), but it also
  puts him in a very vulnerable position if he misses.

* After an air throw, Nagare can OTG the opponent by doing air HP Tobikomi
  before touching the ground.

		/Special Moves/

ほえーる・サーブ (Whale Serve)
	qcf+P

	Momo serves a tennis ball. It travels at an angle
	like Natsu's Jikkon Serve, except the ball bounces
	straight up. Will not hit opponents at close range.

サーブ・あんど・ボレー (Serve and Volley)
	(after Whale Serve) qcf+P

	Momo runs after the ball and swings her racquet.
	Don't bother using this as it puts her in a very
	vulnerable position if blocked. If you want a
	follow-up move after Whale Serve, use her b+HP
	overhead instead.

スピン・スマッシュ (Spin Smash)
	qcf+K

	Momo spins in the air. LK Spin Smash has her landing
	on her feet while HK Spin Smash has her face-down on the
	ground. Good distance, recommended as medium range
	Tardy Counter.

バタバタ・ラケット (Bata-Bata Racquet)
	(in the air) qcf+P (push P repeatedly)

	Momo whacks the opponent with her racquet repeatedly.
	If you want damage over number of hits, you're better
	off using f+HP instead.

ロケット・ラケット (Rocket Racquet)
	dp+P

	Rising racquet attack. High damage, fast startup.

ジャイアント・スイング (Giant Swing)
	hcb+P

	Unblockable command throw. Has higher priority over
	Team-Ups and Party-Ups. Even works against Demon Hyo's
	Shunsatsu Muon.

		/Burning Vigors/

だだっこあたっく (Dadakko Attack)
	qcfx2+P

	Ground version of Bata-Bata Racquet. Should only be
	used in Textbook Combos.

もも・クラッシュ (Momo Crush)
	qcbx2+P (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Rocket Racquet. The startup for
	this move is extremely fast, perfect as close range
	Tardy Counter.

		/Team-Up Technique/

人間壁打ち (Ningen Kabeuchi)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 3 steps.
	Your character grabs the opponent's ankles while Momo
	lobs tennis balls. Fast startup, massive damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, d+LP)
		Note: (LP, d+LP) can be chained up to three times
[2]	HP/HK
		Note : HP only chains from LP;
		       HK only chains from LK
[3]	f+HK Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> (LP,d+LP)x2, LPx2, HP, f+HP -> qcbx2+P

	Momo's Textbook Combo. If you're really close, you can add
	an extra LP, d+LP.

<2> (LP,d+LP)x2, LPx2, HP, f+HK ^ [LKx2, HP, HK -> (qcf+P/qcbx2+P)]

	Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> (LP,d+LP)x2, LPx2, HP, (f+HK)x2, df+HP ^ [(LKx2,HP,HK)x2 -> (f+HP/qcf+P)]

	High Air Combo. The hardest part is timing the second f+HK, it has to be done
	right before the opponent makes a recovery flip. Just keep practising until
	it becomes second nature.

<4> (LP,d+LP)x2, LPx2, HP, (f+HK)x2 -> Party-Up

	Momo's most powerful combo. The Nekketsu Daisharin at the end
	of the combo actually does less damage than usual... but what other
	character do you know has the ability to combo a Party-Up Technique
	so easily?

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: f+HK
          qcf+K
          qcbx2+P
  Air: f+HP
       qcbx2+P

* Momo is one of my favorite characters. She may not be particularly strong,
  but she makes up for that with her speed and very long combo chains. Plus,
  her taunt's quite funny.

* Momo's f+HK is very fast and is good as a close-range Tardy Counter.

ゴッドディフェンス (God Defence)
	qcf+K (to move forward) or
	qcb+K (to move backward)

	Boman shifts forwards or backwards. During God Defence, Boman's
	upper body is invincible, it will even go past Batsu's Zenkai
	Kiaidan. Perfect as a Tardy Counter move, or for getting close
	to the opponent.

ゴッドストレート (God Straight)
	(during God Defence) LP

	Straight punch which knocks the opponent back.

ゴッドアッパー (God Upper)
	(during God Defence) HP

	Uppercut. Does less damage than God Straight, but you can
	OTG the opponent afterwards with a dashing d+HK.

ゴッドフック (God Hook)
	qcb+P

	Knockback attack. LP God Hook hits once, HP God Hook hits
	twice. Use LP God Hook for Tardy Counter, and HP God Hook
	for Textbook Combo.

ゴッドラリアット (God Lariat)
	(in the air) qcb+P

	Boman does a lariat in the air. Good damage and easy
	to combo into.

		/Burning Vigors/

ヘヴンズラッシュ (Heaven's Rush)
	qcfx2+P

	Boman crucifies the opponent on a burning cross. Can only
	cancel from d+HP.

ヘヴンズクロス (Heaven's Cross)
	qcbx2+P (usable in the air)

	Powered version of God Lariat. Slower startup than God
	Lariat and only a bit more damage, but it is possible to combo
	this move from the ground.

		/Team-Up Technique/

Wパワーバスター (Double Power Buster)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step.
	Backbreaking move.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LKx2 or (LPx2, df+LP Mini Launcher)
[2]	HP/HK
		Note: HP only chains from LP;
		      HK only chains from LK;
		      d+HP cannot be chained from LP/LK at all
[3]	df+HK Sweep or f+HP Knockback or Special Move/BV
		Note: df+HK only chains from HK/d+HK
		      f+HP only chains from HP/d+HP

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+HP -> qcfx2+P

	If you want to combo Heaven's Rush, this is the only
	way...

<2> LKx2, d+HK -> qcbx2+P

	This is the combo often used by the CPU.

<3> LKx2, HK, df+HK, d+HK (OTG) -> qcb+LP

	The God Hook at the end won't combo, but it
	does push the opponent away if blocked.

<4> LPx2, df+LP ^ [LPx2, HP -> (qcb+P/qcbx2+P)]

	Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<5> df+HP ^ [LKx2, HP, LPx2, HP -> (qcb+P/qcbx2+P)]

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<6> df+LP (hit jump-in opponent), (dash) LP, df+LP -> Party-Up

	Requires very good timing and the right distance to connect
	the Triple Heaven's Cross.

<7> LPx2, df+LP, qcf+K -> (opponent safe falls backwards) HP (blocked), LP (unblockable), df+LP -> Party-Up

	Not really a combo, but it's a very well-known trap that deserves mention here.
        It is easy to catch your opponent in it, since most people have a habit of
        safe falling backwards in the air. If you don't have enough super stocks for
	Triple Heaven's Cross, then try (dash) df+HP ^ [High Air Combo] instead.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HP
          qcf+P
          qcb+LP
          (qcf/qcb)+K
  Air: f+HP

* To get an alternative version of Boman in Free Mode, hold down the Start
  button while selecting him.

* Though Boman's df+HK sweep can be used as a Tardy Counter, it's too
  slow to be used on its own. Always chain it after his HK or d+HK.

* Boman's b+HP and d+HK are rather fast and have a very long range.
  Play mind games with your opponent by mixing the two attacks, force
  them to decide between standing or crouching.

* Boman's df+LP launcher can't be used as a Tardy Counter, but it has
  very fast startup and recovery. If df+LP hits an opponent jumping in,
  Boman can juggle him/her repeatedly with dashing df+LP. If you're lucky,
  you can even connect Triple Heaven's Cross from it.

* After a standing throw, Boman can OTG the opponent with d+HK or df+HK.

	dp+P

	Spinning uppercut. Use it for Tardy Counters.

	use this for anti-air instead of Twister Upper.

エアダイナマイト (Air Dynamite)

	Dynamite, but it knocks the opponent down. Use LP Air Dynamite if
	you want to land safely.

		/Burning Vigors/

	Three Twister Uppers. Tap P repeatedly for more hits. Used
	primarily as an OTG attack after b+HK.

* Roy's d+HP launcher must be blocked low. This usually catches most
  beginners unaware.

* When used as an OTG attack, Roy's b+HK will lift the opponent from the
  ground. Unlike other OTG attacks, you can cancel any special move or
  Burning Vigor from b+HK.

	df+HK

Sweeps:

Air Combo Finishers:
	f+HP
	f+HK (can be chained after f+HP, but won't connect)
	qcb+K

Other Basic Moves:

	f+LP (can only be chained after one LP/LK)

	Short elbow attack. You can cancel into special
	moves, but they won't connect.

	df+LP (can only be chained after one LP/LK)

	Straight punch. Does more damage than normal
	LP and can be used in a Textbook Combo.

	(in the air) d+K (repeatedly)

	Tiffany does a head stomp. LK version stomps directly
	below her while HK version stomps at an angle. If
	you plan on using this, use HK version.

		/Special Moves/

グルービーナックル (Groovy Knuckle)
	qcf+P (chargable)

	Backhand punch. Low damage, but fast recovery. Charged
	version has her spinning low on the ground.

ビューティフルスピン (Beautiful Spin)
	dp+K

	Anti-air kick similar to Hayato's Kiai Kick. This has a slow
	startup, but regardless of whether it is blocked or not
	Tiffany will recover quickly in the air. This means you can
	do a LP/LK, a f+HP, an Exciting Kick or her d+HK head stomp
	before she touches the ground.

グルービーパンチ (Groovy Punch)
	qcb+P (chargable)

	Tiffany spins her arm and delivers a punch. It can't be used
	in a combo, but if you manage to fully charge it (when her
	glove starts to glitter), the move becomes unblockable. Still,
	this move is not recommended because the opponent will most
	likely hit you with a Party-Up when they see you charging up.

グルービーホエール (Groovy Wheel)
	qcf+K

	Cartwheel attack with knockback effect. Decent startup speed,
	but bad recovery time if blocked.

エキサイティングキック (Exciting Kick)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	Tiffany leaps back and does a quick dive kick at the opponent.
	Strength of K determines distance. As with the other dive kick
	moves in this game, it has long recovery delay if blocked.

		/Burning Vigors/

グルービースペシャル (Groovy Special)
	qcfx2+P

	Four Groovy Knuckles followed by a Groovy Punch. Fast startup,
	decent damage. Can be used in Textbook Combo and is a pretty
	good Tardy Counter. If this move is blocked, the opponent can
	easily counterattack while she is charging up her Groovy Punch.

グルービースクリュー (Groovy Screw)
	qcbx2+K

	Tiffany puts her thighs between the opponent's head and does a
	spin. Can't be used in a combo. She has super armor during the
	entire animation, but is still vulnerable to Party-Up attacks.

ワンダフルキック (Wonderful Kick)
	qcfx2+K

	Powered version of Beautiful Spin.

		/Team-Up Technique/

ラブ&ピース (Love & Peace)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Tiffany
	gives your character a kiss, restoring a significant portion of
	health.

		/Special Moves/

無双突き (Musou-Zuki)
	qcf+P

	Straight punch attack. Slow startup, should only be used in
	combos. LP Musou-Zuki is a knockback, while HP Musou-Zuki can
	be chained three times.

無双裏拳 (Musou Riken)
	dp+P

	Anti-air attack. Can be used to hit jump-in opponents.

気功塊 (Kikoukai)
	(in the air) qcf+P

	Daigo produces a burst of energy from his palm. LP Kikoukai
	should be used against ground opponents while HP Kikoukai is
	for opponents in the air.

無双蹴り (Musou-Geri)
	qcb+K

	Spinning kick attack. LK Musou-Geri kicks twice, HP Musou-Geri
	kicks three times. When fighting against human opponents, keep them
	guessing by alternating between LK and HK versions. This makes
	it harder for you to get Tardy Countered.

大地突き (Daichi-Zuki)
	qcb+P

	Daigo pounds his fist into the ground, generating a quake that
	will knock the opponent down, even from a distance.

		/Burning Vigors/

真・無双正拳突き (Shin Musou Seiken-Zuki)
	qcfx2+P

	Powerful punch combo. Fast startup, but if blocked expect a
	swift counterattack from the opponent.

真・漢の背中 (Shin Kan no Senaka)
	qcfx2+K

	Daigo turns his back towards the opponent and a ring of fire
	comes up from the ground. Tap K repeatedly for more hits.

硬気功塊 (Kou-Kikoukai)
	(in the air) qcfx2+P

	Powered version of Kikoukai.

		/Team-Up Technique/

漢の中の漢 (Kan no naka no Kan)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Daigo
	blocks all of the opponent's attacks and then Tardy Counters
	with an uppercut. Good damage, but poor recovery time if blocked.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)

[3]	f+HK Knockback or b+HK Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LK, HP, HK, f+HP -> qcfx2+P, (dash two steps) qcb+LP (OTG)

	Textbook Combo. You can start the combo with LPx2, but d+LK
	is faster and has longer range.

<2> LP, LK, HP, HK, b+HK ^ [LPx2, HP -> qcfx2+HP]

	Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> df+HP ^ [(LPx2,HP)x3 -> qcfx2+HP] v b+HK (OTG)

	High Air Combo. You can just use Kikoukai instead of
	Kou-Kikoukai, the damage difference is miniscule.

	(in the air) qcf+P
無双蹴り (Musou-Geri)

	qcb+P

	Wild Daigo has identical special moves as normal Daigo.

		/Burning Vigors/

暴走・無双正拳突き (Bousou Musou Seiken-Zuki)
	qcfx2+P

	Startup attack is the same as normal Daigo's, except Wild Daigo has
	a faster recovery delay if blocked.

暴走・漢の背中 (Bousou Kan no Senaka)
	qcfx2+K

	A giant burst of energy explodes from the ground surrounding
	Wild Daigo. He has super armor throughout the entire animation.
	Very slow startup and horrible recovery.

暴走・硬気功塊 (Bousou Kou-Kikoukai)
	(in the air) qcfx2+P

	Does only one hit, but it deals far more damage than the normal
	Kou-Kikoukai.

		/Team-Up Technique/

男の中の狂気 (Otoko no naka no Kyouki)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Wild Daigo
	beats the stuffing out of both you and your opponent, inflicting
	a lot of damage to both sides. Not recommended at all.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HK Knockback or b+HK Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:

[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LK, HK, f+HP -> qcfx2+P, (dash two steps) qcb+LP (OTG)

	Textbook Combo. The big difference between Daigo and his wild
	counterpart is that they follow a different combo chain. Wild
	Daigo cannot chain same strength attacks on the ground, but
	he can do so in the air. Vice versa for normal Daigo.

<2> d+LK, HK, b+HK ^ [LP, LK, HP, HK -> qcfx2+HP]

	Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> df+HP ^ [(LPx2,HP)x3, HK -> qcfx2+HP]

	High Air Combo. Just like normal Daigo's, except the HK
	near the end.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HP
          qcfx2+P
  Air: f+HP
       qcfx2+HP

* To unlock him in Free Mode, play the Gedo HS storyline in Story Mode
  and get the good ending. In order to do so, when you get to the fourth
  episode where you have to fight Wild Daigo, finish one round with
  a Party-Up Technique (otherwise the story would end prematurely).

* Wild Daigo plays almost the same as Daigo - the major difference
  is that Wild Daigo has better air combos, whereas regular Daigo has
  better ground combos.

	b+HK,b+HK,b+HK (knockback)
	b+HK,b+HK,f+HK,b+HK (overhead)
	b+HK,b+HK,f+HK,f+HK (knockback)

	Edge's unique kick combos. Can be used in his
	Textbook Combo.

		/Special Moves/

裏斬り (Uragiri)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)
	HP (while back is turned towards opponent)

	Knife throw. LP Uragiri can be chained twice. HP Uragiri can
	chain right after LP Uragiri, but it will leave Edge with his
	back towards the opponent.
	He can also throw a knife while his back is turned, by just
	pressing HP. This can be done after Hakai, HP Uragiri or
	HK Batou.

対空裏斬り (Taikuu Uragiri)
	qcb+P

	Anti-air version of Uragiri. HP Taikuu Uragiri can chain after
	LP Uragiri or LP Taikuu Uragiri.

罵倒 (Batou)
	qcf+K

	Edge kicks some sand into the opponent's face. LK Batou has
	a very fast startup and is good as a Tardy Counter, or for
	stopping dash-in opponents. HK Batou is slower and leaves
	Edge with his back turned, but it is possible to cancel
	into Chimatsuri from it.

破壊 (Hakai)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	Edge sidesteps and then dives towards the opponent. LK Hakai
	is a knockdown move and must be blocked low. Recovery delay
	is poor so use with caution.

		/Burning Vigors/

壮絶な裏斬り (Souzetsu na Uragiri)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Uragiri. Edge makes a pincushion out of the
	opponent. Does only one hit, but if blocked the opponent will
	have to block all the knives. Because of its slow startup,
	this move can't be used in a Textbook Combo.

血祭り (Chimatsuri)
	qcbx2+P

	Edge sidesteps, then rushes forwards and performs a fast knockdown
	combo on the opponent. The startup is almost instantaneous, perfect
	for use as a Tardy Counter.

		/Team-Up Technique/

血゛獄 (Jigoku) (it's a pun of 地獄 "Hell")

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 3 steps. Edge and
	your character dashes and slashes the opponent. Long range, fast
	startup and recovery. Even if blocked, your character will get
	to attack first. Too bad it doesn't deal a lot of damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HP Knockback or df+HK Mini Launcher or b+HK Kick Combo or Special Move/BV

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> LP, LK, HK, (b+HK)x2, (f+HK)x2

	Edge's kick combo. If opponent is crouch blocking end the combo
	with b+HK instead.

<2> (qcf+LP)x2, qcf+HP, HP

	Uragiri combo. Not really a combo, since the final Uragiri won't
	connect. This is best done from a distance.

<3> d+LP, LK, HP -> qcf+HK -> qcfx2+P

	Edge's legendary Chimatsuri combo. Since Edge's back is turned
	after HK Batou, the command for Chimatsuri is reversed - qcfx2+P,
	not qcbx2+P. Don't cancel it during Batou; just wait until his feet
	touch the ground and then do it.

<4> d+LK, HK, df+HK ^ [LPx2 -> qcfx2+P]

	Mini Air Combo. Unfortunately Souzetsu na Uragiri will only combo
	after LP and nothing else.

<5> df+HP ^ [(LKx2)x3, LPx2 -> qcfx2+P]

	High Air Combo. Hold the joystick up throughout the whole combo.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: f+HP
          df+HP
          qcf+LK
          qcbx2+P
  Air: f+HK
       qcf+LP

* Don't use Edge's df+HK as a Tardy Counter because it has short range and
  cannot hit crouching opponents. Use df+HP or f+HP instead.

* Edge's df+HP launcher is a sidestepping attack which can avoid most projectile
  attacks at close range (not Burning Vigor). This means that if he successfully
  hits an opponent who is about to fire, the projectile will actually go past him.

	Tardy Counter. HP Teppou-Zuki can be chained twice.

柏手破り (Kashiwade Yaburi)
	dp+P

	Gan claps the opponent's head. LP Kashiwade Yaburi is a knockback,
	HP Kashiwade Yaburi stuns the opponent for a short moment.

大嵐 (Ooran)
	hcb+P

	Gan's unblockable command throw. Unfortunately it doesn't work on
	crouching opponents.

大旋風 (Oosenpuu)
	(in the air) qcf+P

	Gan's air command throw. Can't be used in a combo. Use this only
	as a surprise move.

岩石砕き (Ganseki Kudaki)
	(in the air) qcf+K

	Gan falls straight down on the opponent. HK Ganseki Kudaki dizzies
	the opponent, but he/she will recover about one second after Gan gets
	up. This will only give you enough time for one of the following
	moves - Teppou-Zuki, Ooran, Midare Teppou-Zuki or Funkazan.
	As an Air Combo Finisher, you're better off just using d+HK.

荒波四股 (Aranami Shiko)
	qcf+K

	Overhead stomp. LK Aranami Shiko is very damaging as an OTG attack.
	For HK Aranami Shiko you can chain another one by just pressing HK.

ぶちかまし (Buchikamashi)
	qcb+K

	Gan tackles head-first into the opponent. LK Buchikamashi is a short
	knockback move, you can follow up with any OTG attacks like dashing df+HP.
	HK Buchikamashi is Gan's High Launcher. It can only combo from d+HP.

		/Burning Vigors/

乱れ鉄砲突き (Midare Teppou-Zuki)
	qcfx2+P

	Powered version of Teppou-Zuki. If you can spare a super stock, you can
	use this instead of normal Teppou-Zuki as your Tardy Counter.

噴火山 (Funkazan)
	qcbx2+P

	Unblockable super throw.

雪崩落とし (Setsuhou Otoshi)
	(in the air) qcfx2+P

	Unblockable super air throw. This is great against jump-in opponents.

		/Team-Up Technique/

活火山 (Kakkazan)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Grabbing
	his/her arms and legs, Gan and your character slam the opponent into
	the ground. Good damage, but slow startup and bad recovery.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LKx2 or (LP, df+LP Mini Launcher)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HP Knockback or qcb+HK High Launcher or Special Move/BV
		Note: qcb+HK can only chain from d+HP

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2
		Note: In actual battle LKx2 should be used instead of LPx2
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> (d+LK)x2, d+HP -> qcfx2+P

	Gan's ground combo. You can also use d+LP instead of d+LK for the
	combo. d+LP is not as fast as d+LK, but it has a longer reach.

<2> d+LP, df+LP ^ [LKx2, HP, d+HK]

	Mini Air Combo. Don't use this one, the next combo's better.

<3> (d+LK)x2, d+HP -> qcb+HK ^ [LKx2, HP, d+HK]

	High Air Combo. Unfortunately for Gan, he can't get more than
	four hits in his air combo, regardless of whether it's Mini or
	High.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HP
          qcf+LP
          qcfx2+P
  Air: f+HP

* Gan's weaknesses are obvious - he's as slow as molasses and his stout
  body makes him a huge target. He is, however, one of the strongest
  characters in the game. While he can't do as much hits as others
  can, the damage he inflicts is massive.

* Gan is the only character who can chain a heavy punch after LKx2.

* After a standing throw, Gan can OTG the opponent with LK Aranami Shiko.

		/Special Moves/

裏裡門 (Urarimon)
	qcf+P

	Knockback elbow thrust. LP Urarimon can be used in Textbook Combo,
	HP Urarimon includes a sidestep. Use LP Urarimon for Tardy Counter.

鷂子栽肩 (Yousu Saiken)
	dp+P

	Two-hit headbutt/shoulder strike. Heavy damage. Use this to finish
	your Textbook Combo if your super gauge is empty.

旋蹴舞 (Senshuubu)
	qcf+K (can be chained three times)

	Same as normal Akira's.

放舞 (Houbu)
	qcb+K

	Same as normal Akira's.

破天の構 (Haten no Kamae)
	qcb+P

	Akira stands on one leg. Not really an attack move, this is used to
	initiate one of the following four combos.

龍牙裂斬 (Ryuuge Rezzan)
	(during Haten no Kamae) LP,HP,HK,LK,LK,LK

	Use this combo against jump-in opponents.

旋燕嵐舞 (Sen'en Ranbu)
	(during Haten no Kamae) HP,LP,LK,HK

	Actually, it is better to leave out the HK at the end. After LK
	you can follow up with Houbu, df+HP, or f+HP -> Ha no Sougeki.

羅漢進撃 (Rakan Shingeki)
	(during Haten no Kamae) LK,LK,LK,LP,HP,HK

	Same as doing Akira's Ha no Renbu.

鳳翼天蹴 (Houyoku Tenshuu)
	(during Haten no Kamae) HK,LK,LK,LK,LP,HP

	Leave out the HP at the end if you want to continue your air combo.
	See her combo section for more details.

		/Burning Vigors/

破の双撃 (Ha no Sougeki)
	qcbx2+P

	Combo attack. The startup is fast, okay as a Tardy Counter.

天の連舞 (Ten no Renbu)
	qcbx2+K

	Same as normal Akira's.

剛気功塊 (Gou-Kikoukai)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Like Wild Daigo's Bousou Kou-Kikoukai, it only does one hit but the
	damage is massive. Always try to finish your Air Combos with this.

		/Team-Up Technique/

連撃連武 (Rengeki Renbu)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Your character
	grabs the opponent as Akira comes in and pummels him/her. Good range,
	decent damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	b+HP Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LK, HK, f+HP -> (dp+P/qcbx2+P)

	Textbook Combo. d+LK is used because the range of her LP is too short.

<2> d+LK, HK, b+HP ^ [LPx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+P]

	Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> qcb+P, HP, LP, LK, df+HP ^ [HP, (LKx2,HP)x2 -> qcfx2+P]

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<4> qcb+P, HP, LP, LK, qcb+K, qcb+P, HK ^ [LKx3, LP, LKx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+P]

	A very tricky High Air Combo to perform. After you launch the opponent
	with Houbu, you only have a short moment before he/she can recover. Push
	HK the instant you finish inputting the command for Haten no Kamae.
	In the air combo, after LP, hold the joystick up as you press LK.
	When you cancel the Gou-Kikoukai, don't do it immediately or you will
	miss. Good luck mastering this... it took me an entire week to get it
	right.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: b+HP
          df+HP
          qcf+LP
          qcb+K
  Air: f+HK

* To unlock her in Free Mode, finish the Seijyun HS storyline in Story
  Mode. When you get to the fourth episode where you have to fight Wild
  Daigo, do not use any Team-Up or Party-Up Techniques.

* Trivial piece of info: if you hold down LP+HK before the start of a match,
  Akira will have her helmet visor lifted up.


------------------------------------------------------------------------

	>> Justice HS <<

Party-Up Technique:

	粛清の嵐 (Shukusei no Arashi)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Your
	character stuns the opponent, then a party member launches him/her
	and the other member knocks him/her down. Good reach and damage.

		/Special Moves/

正波拳 (Seihaken)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Hadouken clone. Larger than Batsu's Kiaidan, but the
	ground version doesn't have as much range. In the air,
	HP Seihaken can be fired again by pressing HP.

対空正波拳 (Taikuu Seihaken)
	qcb+P

	Anti-air version of Seihaken.

実直拳 (Jicchoken)
	dp+P

	Shouryuuken clone. LP Jicchoken has fast recovery.

雷鋭蹴 (Raieishuu)
	(in the air) qcf+K

	Aerial dive kick. Like Batsu's Ryuusei Kick, it has horrible
	delay if blocked. Use this move to distance yourself away from
	the opponent if they are getting too close.

真円脚 (Shin'en-Kyaku)
	qcb+K

	Tatsumaki Senpuu-Kyaku clone. LK Shin'en-Kyaku does one hit,
	HK Shin'en-Kyaku does three hits.

		/Burning Vigors/

島津流 真・実直拳 (Shimazu-ryuu Shin Jicchoken)
	qcfx2+P

	Shin Shouryuuken clone. Extremely high damage if used on its
	own, but damage is reduced if used in a combo. For maximum
	effect, use this as a Tardy Counter.

島津流 正波拳 (Shimazu-ryuu Seihaken)
	qcbx2+P

	Shinkuu Hadouken clone. Use this to keep the opponent from
	dashing or jumping in. This won't stop Team-Ups or Party-Ups
	though.

島津流 雷鋭蹴 (Shimazu-ryuu Raieishuu)
	(in the air) qcfx2+K

	Hideo does three Raieishuu. Can be used as an Air Combo
	Finisher, but difficult to connect.

		/Team-Up Technique/

島津流 双龍正波拳 (Shimazu-ryuu Souryuu Seihaken)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps.
	Hideo launches the opponent with a Jicchoken and both
	your character and Hideo fire a Seihaken. You can follow
	up with an OTG attack afterwards.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK or d+HP Mini Launcher
[3]	f+HP Knockback or Special Move/BV

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> [qcf+HP, HP] v (dash) LP, LK, HP -> qcfx2+P

	Textbook Combo. Both Seihaken shots must hit before
	you can dash in.

<2> d+LP, LP, d+HP ^ [LKx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+K]

	Mini Air Combo. You have to be level with your opponent
	before cancelling into Shimazu-ryuu Raieishuu.

<3> df+HP ^ [LKx2, (LPx2,HP)x2 -> qcfx2+K]

	High Air Combo. Pause for a microsecond before cancelling
	the Shimazu-ryuu Raieishuu.

* One of my friends joked that Hideo is what Ryu (from the Street
  Fighter games) would probably look like twenty years from now.
  An easy character for beginners to get to grips with. Oh, and
  his Shin Jicchoken owns.

		/Special Moves/

触診 (Shokushin)
	qcf+P (push K repeatedly)

	Fast unblockable command throw. LP Shokushin grabs crouching
	opponents, HP Shokushin targets standing opponents. You can
	kick for a maximum of six hits, but it's likely the opponent
	will mash out before you do.

出席確認 (Shusseki Kakunin)
	qcb+P

	Kyoko sidesteps and does a swipe with her clipboard.
	LP Shusseki Kakunin is a sweep attack and must blocked low.
	HP Shusseki Kakunin knocks the opponent into the air, but it
	is not a Mini Launcher as the opponent can recover almost
	immediately. HP Shusseki Kakunin works well as anti-air
	because it is difficult to air block.

昇天切開 (Shouten Sekkai)
	dp+K (usable in the air)

	Rising knee attack. LK Shouten Sekkai is Kyoko's Mini Launcher.
	HK Shouten Sekkai can be followed up by another HK, which is
	almost impossible to Tardy Counter.

片翼の構 (Katayoku no Kamae)
	qcf+K

	Kyoko's counterattack stance. Can't counter projectiles and
	crouching attacks.

回診 (Kaishin)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	Spin kick. Can be chained three times. Strength of K determines
	the angle of flight.

伸身 (Shinshin)
	b+KK

	Kyoko flips to the back of the opponent. Also a knockdown move.
	Has very fast recovery if blocked.

		/Burning Vigors/

死の介護 (Shi no Kaigo)
	qcfx2+P

	Unblockable super throw. More useful than other super throws
	because of its range.

奈落への補導 (Naraku e no Hodou)
	qcbx2+K

	Powerful backbreaker move. Can be used in Textbook Combos. Won't
	hit crouching opponents.

天獄への階段 (Tengoku e no Kaidan)
	qcfx2+K

	Powered version of Shouten Sekkai. Extremely fast recovery.

		/Team-Up Technique/

究極の矯正術 (Kyuukyoku no Kyouseijutsu)

十文字斬り (Juumonji Kiri)
	qcf+P,P

	One horizontal slash, followed by a vertical slash. Used
	for ending combos.

桜竜斬 (Ouryuuzan)
	dp+P

	Rising slash attack. Not a great anti-air move.

天雷斬 (Tenraizan)
	(in the air) qcf+P

	Hyo brings his sword straight down on the opponent. It looks
	cool, but if you want more damage use Gen'ei-shuu instead.

幻影蹴 (Gen'ei-shuu)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	Identical to Kyosuke's Gen'ei Kick.

居合斬り (Iai-Giri)
	qcb+P,P

	Hyo sidesteps and does two slashes. After the second P
	you can cancel into any special move or Burning Vigor.

		/Burning Vigors/

暗黒疾風斬 (Ankoku Shippuuzan)
	qcfx2+P

	With a single strike, Hyo sets the opponent on fire. The
	great thing about this move is that Hyo will end up quite
	a distance away from the opponent, making it impossible
	for a counterattack.

暗黒幻影蹴 (Ankoku Gen'ei-shuu)
	qcbx2+K

	Similar to Kyosuke's Double Gen'ei Kick, except Hyo ends
	with a Tenraizan. An okay Tardy Counter.

暗黒幻影陣 (Ankoku Gen'ei-jin)
	qcfx2+K

	Mirror image attack. Very fast startup. Can be used as
	anti-air or Tardy Counter.

		/Team-Up Technique/

残酷斬 (Zankokuzan)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps.
	Your character grabs the opponent while Hyo slashes him/her.

		/Special Moves/

殺刃 (Satsujin)
	qcf+P (usable in the air)

	Fast cross-slash. Has knockback effect. A better anti-air
	move than Shouzan.

昇斬 (Shouzan)
	dp+P

	Anti-air attack. Use LP Shouzan as it comes out faster.

幻影蹴 (Gen'ei-shuu)
	qcb+K (usable in the air)

	Same as normal Hyo's.

疾駆 (Shikku)
	qcb+P,P,P

	Demon Hyo rushes back and forth across the screen. Extremely
	fast startup, but if blocked it leaves him in a very vulnerable
	position for a counterattack.

		/Burning Vigors/

霧幻流 暗黒衝撃斬 (Mugen-ryuu Ankoku Shougekizan)
	qcfx2+P

	A blaze of fire streaks across the ground. Comes out almost
	instantaneously, but it only does one hit and the damage isn't
	that great compared to his other moves.

霧幻流 瞬殺無音 (Mugen-ryuu Shunsatsu Muon)
	qcbx2+P,P

	Demon Hyo charges forward and does a spinning slice. If you press
	the second P at the right time (just before the swords make contact
	with the opponent), the attack becomes an unblockable impalement.
	When fighting against human opponents, don't use this move, ever.
	The startup is so slow that anyone can just interrupt with a standing
	throw or a Party-Up, or they can simply avoid it by sidestepping or
	jumping.

霧幻流 闇吹雪 (Mugen-ryuu Anfubuki)
	qcfx2+K (usable in the air)

	A sphere of energy surrounds Demon Hyo. Tap K repeatedly for more
	hits. Has good recovery.

		/Team-Up Technique/

霧幻流 残酷斬 (Mugen-ryuu Zankokuzan)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Same as

* To unlock him in Free Mode, you have to finish all eleven storylines in
  Story Mode. In other words, unlock everyone else first.

* Despite being the final boss in the game, Demon Hyo is not that great
  to use. Sure he has fast moves, but most of them have poor recovery delay
  and are easy to counter. Oh, and his Shunsatsu Muon is grossly overrated,
  it's absolutely useless against (smart) human opponents.

	>> Seijyun HS <<

Party-Up Technique:

	聖女の鉄槌 (Seijo no Tettsui)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Your

	into the air and slam him/her down on your character's fist.
	Good anti-air attack.

Mini Launchers:
	d+HP (must be blocked low)

Sweeps:
	d+HK (can be done after f+HK)

Air Combo Finishers:

	qcfx2+P

		/Special Moves/

骸裡門 (Gairimon)
	qcf+P

	Akira charges forward and knocks the opponent into the air. HP Gairimon
	includes a sidestep. It may look like a Mini Launcher, but it's not
	because the opponent will be able to recover immediately.

風撃襲 (Fuugekishuu)
	qcb+P,K

	Akira does a flip in the air. Push K for a knockdown kick.

旋蹴舞 (Senshuubu)
	qcf+K (can be chained three times)

	Sweeping/flying kick combination. LK Senshuubu is a low kick
	and must be blocked low.

放舞 (Houbu)
	qcb+K

	Akira's Mini Launcher. Can't be used in a Textbook Combo, but because
	of its fast startup, it does make a good Tardy Counter.

破天連撃 (Haten Rengeki)
	b+LP (initiates combo)

	A watered-down version of Powered Akira's Haten no Kamae. You can
	execute one of the following four combos:

	b+LP, LP, LP, LP

	Four quick punches. The last punch is a knockback.

	b+LP, LP, LK

	The LK at the end is a High Launcher.

	b+LP, LK, LK, HK

	The second LK is an overhead, and the HK is a sweep.

	b+LP, LK, HK, HK

	The first HK is a low attack, and it must be blocked low. You should
	leave out the second HK because it's too slow to connect.

		/Burning Vigors/

気功塊 (Kikoukai)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Different from Daigo's or Powered Akira's, this Kikoukai looks
	more like a ball of energy. Can't connect in a Textbook Combo,
	this move is more useful in the air than on the ground.

破の連舞 (Ha no Renbu)
	qcbx2+P

	Combo attack. The startup is fast, okay as a Tardy Counter.

天の連舞 (Ten no Renbu)
	qcbx2+K

	Akira launches the opponent and does a quick air combo attack.
	Slow startup and recovery. Can't connect in a Textbook Combo.
	Not a very useful move.

破天無影蹴 (Haten Mueishuu)
	qcfx2+K

	Akira launches herself leg-first at the opponent. Slow startup
	and horrible recovery.

		/Team-Up Technique/

協奏連撃蹴 (Kyousou Rengekishuu)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Your
	character and Akira kick the opponent to each other. Average
	damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or b+LP Haten Rengeki Combo
[2]	HP/HK or d+HP Mini Launcher
[3]	(f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LK, HP, f+HP -> (qcf+LP/qcf+LK/qcbx2+P)

	Textbook Combo. d+LK is used because the range of her LP is too short.

<2> d+LK, d+HP ^ [LK, LP, HP, HK -> qcfx2+P]

	Mini Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<3> b+LP, LP, LK ^ [(LKx2,HP)x3, HK, f+HK]

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HP
          qcb+K
  Air: f+HK

* Akira's df+HP launcher comes out fast and is great as both Tardy Counter
  and anti-air.

		/Basic Moves/

		/Special Moves/

破戒の鉄鎖 (Hakai no Tessa)
	qcf+P (usable in the air;
	       HP version is chargable)

	Zaki swings her chain parallel to the ground. For HP Hakai no Tessa
	she can charge her attack by holding down HP (and cancel anytime by
	pushing any kick). In the air LP Hakai no Tessa goes in a 45 degree
	angle towards the ground, while HP Hakai no Tessa goes parallel to
	the ground.

毒蛇の鉄鎖 (Dokuja no Tessa)
	qcb+P (HP version is chargable)

	Zaki swings her chain into the ground. Must be blocked low.

空覇の鉄鎖 (Kuuha no Tessa)
	dp+P (HP version is chargable)

	Anti-air version of Hakai no Tessa. Chain goes up in a 45 degree
	angle from the ground.

孤高のプライド (Kokou no Pride)
	qcf+K

	Zaki squats down. You can perform one of the following four special
	kicks.

天下掃腿 (Tenka Soutai)
	(during Kokou no Pride) LK

	Slide kick. Must be blocked low.

天井足刀 (Tenjou Sokutou)
	(during Kokou no Pride) HK

	Flying kick. Not an overhead attack, surprisingly.

本気蹴り (Maji-Geri)
	(during Kokou no Pride) u+LK

	Stomp kick. Slow startup, but if it hits you can go straight
	into a Textbook Combo.

裏・本気蹴り (Ura Maji-Geri)
	(during Kokou no Pride) u+HK

	Stomp kick on the back of the opponent's head.

眼光蹴り (Kenkou-Geri)
	qcb+K

	Overhead kick. LK Kenkou-Geri hits once, HK Kenkou-Geri
	hits twice.

		/Burning Vigors/

必殺電光鉄鎖 (Hissatsu Denkou Tessa)
	qcfx2+P (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Hakai no Tessa. Ground version can only
	be cancelled after LK. Can also hit jump-in opponents, but
	they won't take full damage. Air version is okay as an
	Air Combo Finisher, though damage isn't that great compared
	to ground version.

必殺稲妻眼光蹴り (Hissatsu Inazuma Kenkou-Geri)
	qcbx2+K

	Powered version of Kenkou-Geri. Not an overhead attack, which
	means it can be crouch blocked.

		/Team-Up Technique/

ガンつけ120% (Gantsuke Hyakunijuu Percent)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. A staring
	contest which ends badly for the opponent. Average damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	f+HK Knockback or df+HK Mini Launcher or (f+HP -> Special Move/BV)

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LP, LK, HP, HK, f+HP -> (qcb+HK/qcbx2+K)

	Textbook Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

<2> LK -> qcfx2+P

	If you want to combo Hissatsu Denkou Tessa on the ground, this
	is the only way...

<3> d+LP, LK, HP, HK, df+HK ^ [LPx2, HP, HK -> qcfx2+HP]

	Mini Air Combo. This is one everyone uses again and again.

<4> df+HP ^ [LK, LP, (LKx2)x3, HP, HK, f+HK]

	High Air Combo. Nothing else to mention here.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HK
          qcb+K
  Air: f+HP
       f+HK

* Zaki's standing HP and jumping HP have an incredibly long range and
  priority. In most cases you can just start your combos with HP, without
  needing to dash in with LP/LK.

* Zaki's df+HP launcher cannot hit crouching opponents.

* After an air throw, Zaki can OTG the opponent with Tenka Soutai.

* From y3kman:
  "If I'm not mistaken, Zaki is the only character that has a dash+HP move.
  Zaki will perform a 2-hit punch against an enemy. Zaki's tackle is dash+LP."

Yurika
------

		/Basic Moves/

Vigor Starters:
	b+HP (can chain after heavy attack, but won't combo)

Overheads:
	b+HK (knocks opponent down)

Knockbacks:
	f+HP
	f+HK

High Launchers:
	df+HP
	qcbx2+P

Mini Launchers:
	qcf+HP

Sweeps:
	d+HK

Air Combo Finishers:
	f+HP
	f+HK (can chain after f+HP)
	qcb+P
	qcfx2+K

		/Special Moves/

魅惑のワルツ (Miwaku no Waltz)
	qcf+P

	Yurika sidesteps and swings her violin bow. LP Miwaku no Waltz is
	a sweep, while HP Miwaku no Waltz is her Mini Launcher. Slow startup,
	cannot be used in Textbook Combo.

悲恋のセレナーデ (Hiren no Serenade)
	qcb+P (usable in the air)

	Yurika produces a ring of musical notes from her violin. Useful against
	opponents who try to dash or jump in.

深淵のメヌエット (Shin'en no Minuet)
	dp+P

	Yurika pokes with her violin bow. LP Shin'en no Minuet hits twice
	and second hit must be blocked low, HP Shin'en no Minuet hits three
	times. Used in her Textbook Combo.

落日のララバイ (Rakujitsu no Lullaby)
	qcb+K

	A column of musical notes surrounds Yurika. Can be used as anti-air,
	but because the range of this move is so short, I don't recommend
	using it at all.

		/Burning Vigors/

冥府のノクターン (Meifu no Nocturne)
	qcfx2+P

	Yurika streaks across the screen followed by a string of musical
	notes. If blocked it will leave Yurika some distance away from
	the opponent, safe from an immediate counterattack. Can only
	cancel from b+HP, standing LK, or LPx2.

慈愛のレクイエム (Jiai no Requiem)
	qcbx2+P

	Yurika's High Launcher. There are two ways to combo this move:
	either after b+HP, or after LPx2. Both are hard to execute -
	b+HP has a slow startup (which means the opponent can easily
	spot it a mile away), and it is very difficult to cancel
	from LPx2 without doing Hiren no Serenade by accident.
	My advice? Practise makes perfect.

死呼ぶロンド (Shiyobu no Rondo)
	qcfx2+K (usable in the air)

	Powered version of Rakujitsu no Lullaby. Short range, best used
	as an Air Combo Finisher.

		/Team-Up Technique/

激励のコンチェルト (Gekirei no Concerto)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 2 steps. Yurika
	plays a tune that fills your super gauge to maximum level.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[*]	b+HP
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK
[3]	f+HP/f+HK Knockback or Special Move/BV

[1]	b+HP
[2]	df+HP/qcbx2+P High Launcher

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> LPx2, d+HP -> (dp+P/qcfx2+K)

	Yurika's Textbook Combo. As you can see, ground combos are not
	her forte...

<2> d+LP, LK -> qcfx2+P

	One way to combo Meifu no Nocturne.

<3> d+LP, LK, d+HK, qcf+LP (OTG)

	The qcf+LP must be done immediately after the sweep, or else
	the opponent can roll away from it.

<4> qcf+HP ^ [LK, LP, HP, HK, f+HP, f+HK]

	Mini Air Combo. Her Mini Launcher isn't that good, so don't
	expect frequent use of this combo.

<5> b+HP, d+LP, LP -> qcbx2+P ^ [(LKx2)x2, LK, LP, HP, HK -> qcfx2+K]

	High Air Combo. You can try to land more LKx2 in the air combo, but
	I believe three is the maximum.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: df+HP
          qcfx2+P
          qcbx2+P
  Air: (f+HP, f+HK)

* Yurika is one of my personal favorites. True, she isn't a powerful
  character, but she's got one of the best air combos in the game.

* Yurika's df+HP has a longer range than most launchers, and has good
  recovery time. This is her main Tardy Counter move.

* If both hits of Yurika's b+HP are successful, she can follow up
  immediately with df+HP or Textbook Combo.


------------------------------------------------------------------------

	>> Darkside SC <<

Party-Up Technique:

	霧嶋流 一文字連殺 (Kirishima-ryuu Ichimonji Rensatsu)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Kurow
	makes a shish-kebab out of his partners and the opponent.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Kurow
-----

		/Basic Moves/

Vigor Starters:
	df+HP (can chain after heavy attack, but won't combo)

Overheads:
	b+HP
	b+HK

Knockbacks:
	f+HP
	f+HK
	d+HK

High Launchers:
	df+HK

Mini Launchers:
	d+HP (must be blocked low)
	qcbx2+P

Sweeps:
	None

Air Combo Finishers:
	f+HK
	qcf+K

		/Special Moves/

闇神楽 (Yamikagura)
	qcf+P (can be chained three times)

	Fast claw swipe. You can chain this three times, and the type
	of swipe is different depending on whether it's done with LP
	or HP. But really, the only useful chain is probably (qcf+LP)x3
	as the third hit will knock the opponent down, good for an OTG.

六腑突き (Roppu-Zuki)
	dp+P (HP version can be charged)

	Disembowelling strike. LP Roppu-Zuki can only be cancelled from
	df+HP. HP Roppu-Zuki is chargable, but it can't connect in a combo.
	This move should be used solely for the purpose of cancelling into
	Kinki Chikarasui.

夜叉車 (Yasha-Guruma)
	qcf+K (usable in the air)

	Kurow encases himself in a black orb and flies towards the opponent.
	You can change his flight path by holding the joystick
	u/uf/f/df/d and pressing any K button. Undeniably the best
	(or cheapest, depending on your perspective) special move in the
	game. After HK Yasha-Guruma, hold df+K. This is almost impossible
	to counter, and it has virtually no recovery delay. Watch out
	for Party-Ups and Hayato's Nekketsu Cross Counter, though.

闇駆け (Yamikake)
	qcb+K

	Kurow stands on one leg. If he is attacked while he's in this stance, he
	will teleport behind the opponent. This is even effective against Party-Ups.
	However, it can't counter fast multihit attacks or crouching attacks. This
	means that although it can counter a normal Kiaidan, it won't work against
	Zenkai Kiaidan.

空間裂き (Kuukan Saki)
	qcb+P

	Kurow slashes the air, leaving a large claw mark. LP Kuukan Saki is recommended
	against dashing opponents, HP Kuukan Saki makes an excellent anti-air.

		/Burning Vigors/

霧嶋流 狂獣裂破 (Kirishima-ryuu Kyoujuu Reppa)
	qcfx2+P

	Kurow zips across the screen, followed by a long trail of claw marks. Can only
	cancel after HP or df+HP. Horrendous damage, difficult to air block, and an
	excellent OTG move. The only drawback is that if blocked Kurow will end up right
	next to the opponent, with his back turned. When that happens, quickly sidestep to
	avoid the opponent's counterattack.

霧嶋流 真空闇嵐 (Kirishima-ryuu Shinkuu Anran)
	qcbx2+P (can be chained two times)

	A pillar of wind appears in front of Kurow. Can only cancel after HP or df+HP.
	Kurow's Mini Launcher. Use this against jump-in opponents.

禁忌 力吸い (Kinki Chikarasui)
	(during successful hit of Roppu-Zuki) qcfx2+P

	Kurow siphons a large chuck of the opponent's health into his own. Use this if
	you want to get a perfect finish.

		/Team-Up Technique/

霧嶋流 十文字殺法 (Kirishima-ryuu Juumonji Sappou)

	Startup attack's maximum range is approximately 1 step. Kurow and your character
	carve a large X on your opponent. Fast startup, average damage.

		/Combo Chain/

Ground:
[1]	LPx2 or LK or (LP, LK)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK) or d+HP Mini Launcher
[3]	f+HP/f+HK Knockback or Special Move/BV
		Note: Burning Vigors will only cancel from HP

[1]	df+HP
[2]	Special Move/BV

Air:
[1]	LPx2/LKx2 or (LP, LK) or (LK, LP)
[2]	HP/HK or (HP, HK)
		Note: Skip HK if you wish to use Yasha-Guruma as your Air Combo
		      Finisher
[3]	Air Combo Finisher

		/Fundamental Combos/

<1> d+LP, LK, HP -> qcfx2+P

	Kurow's Textbook Combo. You can cancel into Shinkuu Anran instead, but Kyoujuu
	Reppa does far more damage than any Air Combo that Kurow can dish out.

<2> d+LP, LK, HP, HK -> (qcf+LP)x3, qcfx2+P (OTG)

	If you want an OTG combo, here's one. Afterwards, if opponent rolls towards
	you, keep him/her off guard with LP Kuukan Saki.

<3> [HK] v df+HP -> dp+LP -> qcfx2+P

	As far as I know, this is the only combo possible for Kinki Chikarasui.

<4> d+LP, LK, d+HP ^ [LKx2, HP -> qcf+HK]

	Mini Air Combo. Hold u+K during Yasha-Guruma for more hits.

<5> df+HK ^ [LK, LP, (LKx2)x3, HP -> qcf+HK]

	High Air Combo. Hold u+K during Yasha-Guruma for more hits.

		/Notes and Strategies/

* Recommended Tardy Counters -
  Ground: f+HK
          df+HK
          qcb+LP
  Air: f+HK

* Kurow is THE best character in the game. His speed, power and technique
  are unrivalled and his Burning Vigors absolutely kill. This is the only
  character I use when fighting against expert opponents, and so far I have
  never lost a single game with him - he's that good.

* To unlock him in Free Mode, just finish the Darkside SC storyline in
  Story Mode. The Darkside SC will only become available after you have
  completed at least one storyline from each HS.

* Kurow's d+HP and df+HP must be blocked low. It will usually catch most
  beginners unaware.

* Kurow's df+HK launcher has good range and comes out almost instantaneously.
  This is his main Tardy Counter.

* Kurow's jumping HK hits twice and is excellent as a jump-in attack. If
  opponent air blocks it, push him/her away with f+HK.

* After a standing or crouching throw, Kurow can OTG the opponent with
  Kyoujuu Reppa.

	Bugs and Glitches
	-----------------

[Kyosuke's Magical Floating Shoes]

	See Kyosuke's section. Even newbies know this one. You can also
	make your opponent float if they tech/escape Kyosuke's invisible
	throw. I've been told that this bug doesn't work in the American
	version for the Dreamcast, but I can assure you that it does
	indeed work for both the Japanese and American arcade machines.

[Kyosuke's Air Team-Up/Final Symphony]

	See Kyosuke's section.

[Kyosuke's Super-Cheap Throw]

	Can only be done when Burning Vigor gauge is at one or zero. At
	close range, jump towards your opponent and in the air do qcf+PPK.
	The opponent will be thrown regardless of whether they jump or
	stay on the ground.

[Burning Batsu's/Hayato's Super Armor Throw]

	See Burning Batsu's and Hayato's section.

[Yurika's Burning Vigor Cancel]

	After launching the opponent with Yurika's df+HP, quickly do Jiai no
	Requiem (qcbx2+P). As soon as you see its startup animation, hold
	the joystick up. This will stop the Burning Vigor and cancel into
	her super jump.

[Hyo's Unblockable Slash]

	After finishing Hyo's air combo with Tenraizan (qcf+P), do Ankoku
	Shippuuzan (qcfx2+P). If your opponent had safe fallen from Tenraizan,
	they won't be able to block the Shippuuzan.

[Roberto's Not-So-Perfect Catch]

	This only works if your opponent has a Burning Vigor projectile that
	has fire/electricity effect. Stand within kicking distance to the
	opponent (about the length of Roberto's standing HK) - the glitch
	won't work if you're too close or too far. Now get your opponent
	to do their Burning Vigor, while at the same time you perform
	Roberto's Perfect Catch (qcb+P). The Catch will stop the attack,
	but Roberto's body will be on fire/electrified. In this frozen state,
	Roberto cannot move or attack. He cannot be thrown, but any other
	attack from the opponent will still hit him (it will also knock him
	out of the stance).

["Free Play" for only three credits]

	This bug works for both Dreamcast and arcade versions, but if you're
	going to try this on an arcade machine, first make sure the owner's
	not around, and most important of all, don't overuse it...

	(1) Put three credits into the machine.
	(2) Press P1 Start and go into Story Mode. Select Taiyo HS.
	(3) When you reach Episode 2, lose to Akira in the first round
	    (in order to take the Burning Batsu route) and then continue
	    through the story as usual.
	(4) In Episode 4, after you lose to Vatsu, you'll see this scene
	    where Batsu comes back as Burning Batsu. During this scene,
	    push P2 Start.
	(5) Switch over to the 2P side and beat 1P.
	(6) As 2P go into Free Mode and lose to the CPU. It doesn't have to
	     be the first round; if you wish to make the most of your second
	     credit you can play all the way to Demon Hyo and then lose there.
	(7) During the continue screen, press 1P Start.
	(8) Go into Story Mode and select Gorin, Pacific or Seijyun HS.
	(9) The game is now stuck in an endless loop - it doesn't matter
	    whether you win or lose the match, the game will replay Episode 1
	    over and over again.
	    Note: Your opponent will have unbelievably high attack strength
	    and defense. If you can manage to win two rounds in a row (not
	    by Time Over), consider yourself the Grand Master of
	    Project Justice.
