*******************************************************
I. Intro

This is my first FAQ that I have ever written for anything, so I'm doing 
my best here. I decided to write this FAQ because bloody roar happens to 
be my favorite game of all time, and since there are new characters, I 
figured I'd give it a shot. Cronos is probably the coolest looking 
character out there right now, and plus he's the only one who can have 
two beast forms! Well, just check out my FAQ and tell me what you think 
of it. 

*********************************************************

II. Character story
- So what's up with this guy?
Cronos is the prince of the Zoanthrope kingdom, and his life long goal 
is to ensure peace between humans and Zoanthropes. Ganesha is Cronos' 
right hand man, and he too wants to see peace, but he has many bad 
feelings towards humans.
King Orion is Cronos' father, and his mother is Uranus.    

- Well all that's great, but how do I unlock him?
Simple, just beat arcade twice on any difficulty.

**********************************************************
III. Legend

This section is to help translate my controls/moves section.
So here goes nothing.

F= Forward (I might use > too.)
B= Backwards (I might use < too.)

[Note: forwards and backwards are reversed when facing to the left, so 
if I said F+B you would press <, which is backwards (B+X) while facing 
right. (Confusing huh?)]

U= up (I might use ^ too.)
D= down (I might use \/ too.)

[Note: jump, crouch, away, and forward are all the same as up, down, 
left, right in order.]

Duck (press \/, \/)
FD = forward-down (the direction between forward and down)
BD = Back-down (the direction between back and down) 
BU = Back-up (the direction between back and up)
FU = forward-up (the direction between forward and up)

[Note: you will almost never see the second form of a control, but I 
will keep them there in case I use them and you don't know what I'm 
talking about.]

P= punch (b button)
K= kick (a button)
X= beast form/ attack (x button)
BL= block (Y button)

" = Back step (press < <)
" = Dash (press > >)

HB =Hyper beast (press Z button)

Qcf = quarter circle forward (press \/, _\, >  {or, as many people know 
it, down, down-forward, forward})

Qcb = quarter circle back (press \/, /_, <   {or as many people know it, 
down, down-backward, backward})

[FB] = do the attack while facing backwards

[OB] = do the attack while facing the opponent's back

+ = Press at the same time (P+K) 

[P] = There is a pause in this point in the move

And I think that's about it. E-mail me if I missed anything.
-I'm so confused!

And with good reason too...
Bloody Roar combos and moves are very complicated, so it's kinda hard to 
describe them in a very simple sentence. 
The combos look like this Qcf+X U+P, P, QCB+P

IN ENGLISH= quarter circle forward + beast jump + punch, punch, quarter 
circle forward+ punch
[This is not an actual combo]
********************************************************
IV. Character controls and moves
Okay, so here's the meat of my FAQ

Use Qcb+X, to fly, then use P, P to get the opponent into the air and 
mash X for a 15 hit combo, but as soon as the combo hits 15, hit k to 
pick up the opponent and right before he lands, hit k, k, k for a 
whopping 18 hit combo!!!!!!

-Can you tell me how to use Cronos effectively?
Sure, I'll tell you a few pointers

Tactics

-Take 14 hours a day to master Cronos in each of his forms. He is a very 
hard character to master, so take your time.
-If you have a full beast gauge, try this: press Qcf+P to do an Ooraa, 
and follow up with X to make a 9 hit combo, then execute a punch as soon 
as the combo is done, to do a dashing attack.
-When in penguin form, use Raotonaa to confuse player opponents. Com 
doesn't get confused.
-When in phoenix form, attack like a daemon and mash buttons (doesn't 
sound like much of a strategy, but it works.) Use Urunaa for some deadly 
combos, and a killer strategy. 
- When using Qcf, Qcf+X remember that there is a pause right before the 
beast drive lands, leaving you open to attack, and keep in mind that the 
drive can be ducked and blocked.
-Diru Paanaa causes zero damage, but it does drain the beast gauge. Diru 
Toorunaa causes damage based on how much of the beast gauge is drained.

V. Battle chart
-So how does Cronos stack-up against the other characters?

Tips & Tricks magazine has a bloody roar chart that describes how each 
of the characters stack-up to each other by watching 10 Com battles and 
writing down who wins the most out of the ten battles, thus showing who 
each character is better suited to fight a certain character. Thank you 
Tips & Tricks magazine for showing me how to format this table. [I only 
did Cronos]

|Ali.Bak.Bus.Gad.Gan.Jen.Lon.Shn.Shi.Stu.Uri.Xi.Yug.Koh.Ura.   

L 6   7   2   6   2   7   6   7   3   4   6   4  5   6   6

|-----------------------------------------------------------

-As you can see, Cronos is way better suited to fight slower characters 
than anyone else, Specifically Bakuryu and Jenny are umm...let's say a 
little more Violent than others. 

*********************************************************
VI. Q&A
Here I will answer any questions that are e-mailed to me.

Q: How can I be effective in Cronos' Penguin form?
A: Cronos' penguin form is very weak, so I don't suggest using it, but 
if you must, here are some tips.
-Use the block button A LOT!
-Use U+X to juggle opponents and then use Dohoraaie deluxe combo to 
maximize damage on each attack
-Use Raotonaa to confuse opponents and then use D+X while doing Raotonaa 
and pres X, X, X to maximize damage again

Q: Where does Cronos come from and why in the world is he a penguin??- 
From Dkg
A: Cronos is the son of king Orion and Uranus; apparently, king Orion 
fell in love with one of the experiments. Zoanthropes, no matter how 
stupid or dumb they appear to be, are made by eighting under a most 
popular vote. I believe that penguin came in 4th on the top ten list. I 
think the reason that he can also turn into a phoenix is because that I 
think King Orion is a phoenix, and the reason that Cronos has two forms, 
is probably the instability from Uranus. Screwed up genes I'd say.

Q: What is the best way to hit him when he goes penguin on you? From 
Yoshimon2k
A: Choose a character that has lots of low hitting attacks, and keep on 
hitting D+X. I suggest Kohryu, he's tough and those claws are nasty!

Q: Why does he try to kill himself in his end? From allowishus13
A: Cronos Dreams for equality of humans and zoanthropes, and he hates 
the experiments that his father (King Orion) does in the name of 
discovering the true power of zoanthropes and how they can transform. So 
the only answer is, he wanted them to stop so badly, he'd end it with 
his own life...

Q: What's his best combo? In your opinion From Griffen2002
A: Hmmm... well, not his best combo, but in my opinion, his best move is 
Urunaa. It has several follow-ups that are deadly, and it makes him fly. 
Just plain cool, period. 

Q: Who's the phoenix in Ganesha's ending? From Jeff25gotbanned
A: Well, I would think that the phoenix in Cronos' ending would be King 
Orion, since Cronos would get the Phoenix form from his dad. Another 
disputed Question indeed. 

-But wouldn't the phoenix in Ganesha's ending be Cronos?
A: Some people still believe that it is Cronos, but I don't think that 
it would make sense, because Ganesha just knocked him out.
