I.	BACKGROUND
=======================================================================

Who is War Machine?  Jim Rhodes (a.k.a. Rhodey) is War Machine.  He 
wears a suit equipped with high tech weapons, used for combat.  The 
suit was given to him from Tony Stark (Iron Man), a wealthy indus-
trialist, who is known for having founding status of The Avengers.  
Rhodey wore the Iron Man suit when Tony became ill.  When Tony 
returned, he awarded Jim with the suit that he wears now for doing a 
good job.

War Machine's suit is a little more technologically advanced than Iron 
Man's.  War Machine has made appearances in both Iron Man and Avengers 
comics.

=======================================================================
III.	REGULAR ATTACKS
=======================================================================
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
PUNCHES
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
JAB

1.	Standing

A conventional standing jab, use it to start combos.

2.	Crouching

Same as the standing version, use it like almost any other low jab.

3.	Jumping

Same as the standing version, except a small flashy thing appears in 
front of his fist—he also angles his arm down slightly.  This is for 
starting air combos and only for that.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
STRONG

1.	Standing

It looks a lot like his S.Jab, except it has better range and does more 
damage.  Use it as a ground combo filler.

2.	Crouching

War Machine does a basic uppercut while crouching.  It is a mini-
launcher and combos into a couple of special moves or his real 
launcher.

3.	Jumping

War Machine opens one of the cannons in his shoulder and shoots out a 
small laser.  Use it as an AC filler.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
FIERCE

1.	 Standing

War Machine extends his arms out, looking as if he is trying to push 
something.  A purple aura appears in front of him.  If it connects, it 
knocks the opponent across the screen.  Use it to counter dash-ins, 
neutralize fireballs and to combo into a Shoulder Cannon in the corner.

2.	 Crouching

War Machine fires a purple beam while crouching that covers about 
three-quarters of the screen (thanks to cayr@yahoo.com for clearing 
this up).  It combos into projectile special moves.  It doesn't have a 
very good recovery, so be careful about using it.  It will however 
neutralize both fireballs and [non-super] beams!  Also, the closer the 
opponent is to the beam, the more damage it will do.  If it gets jumped 
over, quickly cancel into a Repulsor Blast to avoid punishment.

3.	 Jumping (use joystick to determine which way he punches)

War Machine extends his arm out and a small beam appears.  You can use 
the joystick to determine which way he punches.  Holding the joystick 
neutral makes him punch straight ahead.  The upward version can be used 
to extend an air combo and the downward and regular versions can be 
used as jump-in attacks.  The upward and regular versions can both be 
used for aerial confrontations.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
KICKS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SHORT

1.	Standing

A basic shin kick, it's used for starting combos.  The range isn't as 
good as his S/C.Jab, but it comes out a little faster.

2.	Crouching

A basic low LK, it has about the same range as the standing version and 
it hits low.  Use this to start combos.

3.	Jumping

Same as the standing version, use it as an AC filler and only for that.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
FORWARD

1.	Standing

War Machine turns around and extends his leg straight out.  It has 
pretty good range and is used as a ground combo filler.

2.	Crouching

This is War Machine's knockdown attack.  It has good range but a bad 
recovery.  He extends his leg out and slides forward.

3.	Jumping

War Machine does a funky kick with decent range and is used as an AC 
filler and to combo into a J.U.Fierce or J.U.Roundhouse.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
ROUNDHOUSE

1.	Standing

This is War Machine's launcher.  It has poor horizontal range, but can 
be comboed into off of any jab or short or a C.Strong.  It's also his 
best anti-air attack and this also combos into a War Destroyer.

2.	Crouching

War Machine extends his leg straight out while crouching and folds his 
other leg--a flashy thingy appears in front of the bottom of his foot.  
It hits twice and will knock the opponent across the screen.  It has 
pretty good range--use it to counter dash-ins.  It basically has the 
same priorities as a S.Fierce, except it has better range yet a slower 
recovery delay.  Just like his S.Fierce, this attack will neutralize 
fireballs.

3.	Jumping

War Machine does an inverted version of the standing version.  Use this 
as a jump-in attack.

4.	Up (in air)

Same as the standing version, this is used to continue an AC or to 
combo into an AC finisher.

5.	Down (Knee Stomp, in air)

War Machine travels downward at about a 45-degree angle, using his 
knees to hit his opponent.  This is used as an overhead attack.  It no 
longer has the priority that it did in the first MVC.  You can't combo 
it into anything anymore.

=======================================================================
IV.	SPECIAL MOVES
=======================================================================

A (*) means that the move can be done in the air.
A (H) means that the move can be cancelled into a super.

AIR DASH (in air) Any Direction + 2P

This is a good move for getting across the screen in the air quickly or 
to escape a tough situation.  This can also be used to prolong an air 
combo.

SHOULDER CANNON (*)(H) D, DF, F + P (high version) or K (low version)

In the first MVC, this move caused War Machine to fire a beam.  Now, he 
fires missiles.  The missiles have an advantage over beams: unlike 
beams, missiles do the same amount of damage anywhere on the screen.  
The punch versions make War Machine fire the missiles while standing.  

The kick versions make War Machine fire the missiles while kneeling 
down.  The stronger the attack button used, the more missiles War 
Machine will fire, which will also inflict more damage.  Use the kick 
versions for opponents that like to crouch under the high version.  Be 
careful about doing this move because if the opponent jumps over the 
missiles, you could be in trouble.

SMART BOMBS (*)(H) LK + HP 
(Hold B for short-range, N for mid-range and F for long-range)

War Machine fires a bomb out of each shoulder that travel downwards, 
exploding as they hit either the opponent(s) or the ground.  They do a 
pretty good amount of damage and can be comboed into on the ground via 
C.Fierce.  The direction held on the joystick while doing the move 
determines how far across the screen the bombs will travel.

Hold backward to make them travel short-range, neutral position to 
travel mid-range and forward to travel long-range.  It is easy for the 
opponent to jump over the bombs on the ground.  If they do, you could 
get punished severely.  The recovery time on this move is not very 
good.  Only use the ground version in combos.

REPULSOR BLAST (H) F, DF, D, DB, B + P

War Machine holds out an orb that has sort of a vacuuming effect.  This 
should mainly be used as an anti-air/anti-jump-over attack.  Be careful 
about when to do this move.  It leaves you open to a lot of supers.  It 
does cancel into either one of his supers though, or you can also OTG 
afterwards.

FLIGHT MODE D, DB, B + 2K (repeat the motion to end)

War Machine floats around while being able to attack.  There are many 
different uses for this.  It main uses are for hit-and-run and for 
prolonging AC's.  Another use for this is throwing out Smart Bombs at 
your grounded opponent.  Be careful when using this because War Machine 
cannot block while he's doing this.

=======================================================================
V.	SUPERS (HYPER COMBOS)
=======================================================================

PROTON CANNON D, DF, F + 2P

A giant gun appears above War Machine and War Machine supports it on 
his shoulder and fires a bunch of missiles at the opponent.  It does 
very good damage but is a little tricky to connect.  The best way to 
get this to connect is off of an assist attack, Repulsor Blast or a jab 
Shoulder Cannon in the corner.  Unlike Iron Man's version, War Machine 
cannot combo into his off of any regular attacks.  However, just like 
Iron Man's version, you can OTG afterwards in the corner if it 
connects.

Never throw this out at random.  It has a slow start up and recovery 
delay.  Plus, the opponent has plenty of time to super jump over the 
whole thing and make you take it from behind.  The best time to use 
this is in a Crossover Combination or as a THC filler.  If you find an 
effective way to get this to connect, e-mail me and I'll put it up and 
give you credit for it as well.

WAR DESTROYER D, DF, F + 2K

Now this super is much more useful.  War Machine pulls out a giant 
missile launcher mounted on his back and fires missiles straight up and 
then fall down to where your opponent is.  This super is much better 
because it can be comboed into via S.Roundhouse and it does more block 
damage.  Plus it has a very quick recovery to it and can be cancelled 
into off of a Repulsor Blast.  If it connects in the corner, you can 
OTG afterwards.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
War Machine should start combos with a jump-in attack.  J.D.Fierce may 
be replaced with J.Roundhouse or J.Jab, J.Strong.  S.Fierce may be 
replaced with C.Roundhouse.  When a jump-in attack connects, you will 
usually need to dash, then continue the combo accordingly.  Combos 1 
through 6 may start with a jump-in attack.  Whenever you combo into a 
Shoulder Cannon, always use the jab version, unless you're comboing it 
off of a C.Fierce.  To start a jump-in with Smart Bombs, you must be 
super jumping so you can do a J.D.Fierce afterwards.

COMBO TREE

Thanks to 3pwood (mayfield_john@hotmail.com) for this concept.  This is 
basically a tree of what attacks combo into other attacks.  This does 
not list every possibility but is basically to give you an idea of 
attacks that will combo into other attacks.  It's also to give you an 
idea of how to combo with War Machine.

TEAM HYPER COMBOS

Both of War Machine's supers do well in THC's.  War Destroyer can set 
your partner up for any vertical super, while Proton Cannon can set a 
partner up for a whole bunch of supers.  They can also be good fillers 
and finishers for THC's.  IF you find any possibilities for THC's and 
it isn't listed here, e-mail me and I'll put it up and give you credit 
for it as well.

VII.	GENERAL STRATEGY
=======================================================================

War Machine is an air combo/keep-away character.  He strives on long, 
nasty air combos and keep-away.  He plays great close up or far away.  
When playing far away, don't keep throwing out Shoulder Cannons, hoping 
you will cheese your opponent to death or think that they'll be dumb 
enough not to block, jump over or crouch under the missiles.  You'll 
just find yourself inserting two more quarters by doing this.

Instead, when you're playing at a distance, mix up your high and low 
Shoulder Cannons, C.Fierce and air Smart Bombs.  Don't ever throw 
ground Smart Bombs out at random.  If they get jumped over, you'll be 
in serious trouble.  If an opponent jumps over a C.Fierce, cancel into 
a Repulsor Blast.  One thing you should do often is super jump 
backwards so that your back is against the wall and throw out some 
Smart Bombs out.  There really isn't much that can be done to counter 
this attack.

If the opponent tries to jump in, use Repulsor Blast or S.Roundhouse.  
Counter dash-ins with a S.Fierce or C.Roundhouse. Use Flight Mode to 
stay above your opponent.  While using Flight Mode, use your Smart 
Bombs while they are on the ground.  If they jump, use Shoulder Cannon.  
If you see them starting up a super that may hit you, cancel out of 
Flight Mode immediately.

When playing close, mix up your high attacks, low attacks, jab/short 
Shoulder Cannons, air Smart Bombs and your launcher attack.  Always 
start your attacks with a jump-in with War Machine.  Focus on 
connecting air combos and War Destroyer as much as possible.

Repulsor Blast and S.Roundhouse are very good anti-air attacks.  
Repulsor Blast usually confuses the opponent and they end up getting 
hit by it, setting you up for either an OTG or your super of choice 
afterwards.  S.Roundhouse will set you up for an air combo or War 
Destroyer if it connects.  If a S.Roundhouse gets blocked, cancel into 
a jab Shoulder Cannon or Smart Bombs.

Both of War Machine's supers are very useful.  Both of them can be used 
in combos and they do very good damage and block damage.  Proton Cannon 
does very good damage—the missiles will do the same amount of damage 
anywhere on the screen.  Although it can't be comboed into off of any 
regular attacks like Iron Man's, it's still effective and you should 
use it as much as possible.

It combos off of a Repulsor Blast.  It can also be cancelled into 
immediately after a S.Fierce, Shoulder Cannon combo.  If it connects in 
the corner, you can OTG afterwards.  Don't throw this super out at 
random.  It has a slight startup and an awful recovery delay.

War Destroyer is also a good super and you should also take advantage 
of this as much as possible also.  It combos off of a S.Roundhouse or 
off of a Repulsor Blast.  You can also OTG after this in the corner.  
Although it doesn't do as much damage as Proton Cannon, it does better 
block damage and is much more difficult for your opponent to avoid it.  
It also has a quick startup and recovery so you can afford to throw it 
out at random against a distanced or airborne opponent.  Use it to 
finish off an opponent with almost nothing left on their life bar.

War Machine does well in aerial confrontations.  J/SJ.Fierce should be 
the most commonly used attack for aerial confrontations.  For opponents 
that are above you, use J/SJ.U.Roundhouse.  For opponents that are 
below you, use J/SJ.Roundhouse or Knee Stomp.  Shoulder Cannon can be 
used for opponents that are above you or are at the same level.

Assists A and B are War Machine's best assists.  Assist A can be used 
to help out characters that don't play well from a distance or to 
surprise your opponent.  War Machine is usually safe while he's doing 
this.  Assist B is a mostly defensive assist.  It's used to set your 
partner up for a super, as an anti-air attack or to help your partner 
out of corner pressure.  It can also be used as a decoy.  Throw it out 
at random and if your opponent tries attacking War Machine, dash up to 
your opponent and punish them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SPECIAL FEATURES

I already mentioned these earlier, but I'll put them here anyway.  War 
Machine has a multi-directional air dash (any direction + 2P).  He can 
dash in any direction in the air.  It can be used to prolong an air 
combo, to escape an attack or to get across the screen in the air.  He 
can also use this to go off the screen.  Just super jump and dash 
upward.

He also has a Flight Mode (D, DB, B + 2K) which can be activated 
anywhere on the screen.  It is used as a keep away move and can also be 
used to prolong air combos.  However, he cannot block so be careful 
about using it.  If you want to end it, do a Knee Stomp or do the 
command again.

IRON MAN AND WAR MACHINE, THE DIFFERENCES

There are some differences between Iron Man and War Machine and I'm not 
just talking beams and missiles either.  Below are some primary 
differences between the two.  Thanks to KMegura for this info.

1.  Iron Man's C.Fierce makes him fire a missile that travels across 
    the entire screen, which neutralizes single-hitting projectile  
    attacks and does the same amount of damage from any range.  War 
    Machine's C.Fierce makes him fire a beam that covers about three-
    quarters of the screen.  It neutralizes both fireballs and [non-
    super] beams and weakens the farther away it is from War Machine.
    The overall damage is higher than Iron Man's version.

2.  Iron Man's primary projectile attack (Unibeam) makes him fire a 
    beam, which weakens the farther away it is from him.  War Machine's 
    primary projectile (or projectiles, rather) attack makes him fire 
    missiles, which do the same amount of damage anywhere on the 
    screen, but do less overall damage than the Unibeam.  War Machine's 
    fierce Shoulder Cannon starts up faster than Iron Man's fierce 
    Unibeam.

3.  When Iron Man's Unibeam connects in the corner, it sets him up for 
    a mini-air combo to air combo combination.

4.  Iron Man's Proton Cannon starts up faster, does more overall damage 
    and can be comboed into off of a C.Strong--his Proton Cannon shoots 
    out a beam, which weakens the farther away it is from Iron Man.  
    War Machine's Proton Cannon does not combo off of a C.Strong.  His  
    Proton Cannon shoots out missiles which do the same amount of 
    damage from any range.  It also starts up slower than Iron Man's 
    version.

5.  War Machine has an additional super, War Destroyer, while Iron Man 
    has only a Proton Cannon super.

6.  Iron Man is faster and can combo more easily on the ground than War 
    Machine can--Iron Man can do S.Short, S.Forward, S.Roundhouse, 
    while this doesn't work for War Machine.

7.  Iron Man's C.Jab, S.Roundhouse and C.Roundhouse all do less damage 
    than War Machine's versions.
