       Version 0.49: This is my first FAQ ever submitted to gameFAQS, so 
    please pardon the mistakes in style from this particular guide. The goal 
    of the FAQ is to eventually catalogue all combos inside of Def Jam 
    Vendetta and maybe later on, catalogue the effects of the BLAZIN' mode 
    on the characters. I call this version 0.49 because I believe the 
    original goal of this FAQ to be almost half done. That is, I found the 
    combos for each non-rapper, non-hero character, except for one for 
    Chukkles. Stay tuned for updates!
    
    Monday, April 28 2003
       Version 1.0: Started dating these version updates! This is the Combo 
    FAQ Version 1.0, because EACH and EVERY Character Specific combo from 
    Def Jam Vendetta have been listed. Totally. If any readers would come 
    across any mistake in this combo FAQ, please submit them to my e-mail 
    address (posted at the bottom of the FAQ) for verification. Is this the 
    final version of this FAQ? It could be, because I decided to drop the 
    whole "find out what moves change into what and rate the BLAZIN's of 
    each character" aspect of the FAQ. You didn't really need to know all 
    that, now did ya?
    
    Tuesday, May 7 2003
       Version 1.03: Small mini update to correct three combos. N.O.R.E.'s 
    GRIMEYVILLE BLITZ COMBO and his GRIMEY FIGHTIN' COMBO were incorrect. D-
    Mob's MONEY AND POWER combo also needed a slight change (it's a bounce 
    from ropes running strike, not a simple running strike). Needless to 
    say, the Playstation U.S. magazine from which I took those combos from 
    did not fully do their homework... and I didn't fully double check my 
    works. That's it!
    
    
    [2] - COMBO FAQ
    - The what and why of combos -
    ******************************
    
    What are combos? -Combos are a string of regular moves that, when done 
    in the correct sequence, offers a momentum bonus in addition to more 
    points. By employing combos, you can build up your Blazin' meter faster 
    then usual.
    
    Why won't my combo work? -The fact that you did the first step of the 
    combo does not guarantee that you can do the following step. For 
    instance, say your combo involves a soft grapple into a ground strike. 
    Suppose you execute your soft grapple on a fresh opponent: there is no 
    guarantee that your opponent will stay down long enough for you to 
    execute the second step of the combo. That is why these combos could 
    best be described as a string of moves that give a momentum boost, 
    rather then a true combo.
    
    Do the moves change while they are part of a combo? -No. These combos 
    are a string of regular moves executed in a sequence. The moves executed 
    during the combo are not different from the same moves when executed 
    normally.
    
    Do moves executed as a combo give a damage bonus? -No. They only give a 
    momentum bonus and extra points.
    
    What is the difference between character specific combos and universal 
    combos: The universal combos can be employed by EVERYONE. Every 
    character of the game has these same combos. Character specific combos 
    are combos specific to your character and your character only. One type 
    of combo is not more rewarding then the other.
    
    What's all this talk about Level 2 and Level 3 combos? -Here's where my 
    knowledge falters. Level 2 and level 3 combos are ONLY for the Hero 
    characters: Briggs, Proof, Spider and Tank. I am partially sure that you 
    obtain these combo by upping the stats of your characters. I am CERTAIN 
    that you obtain the level 2 combos by investing in one $250000 point in 
    the stat category. The level 3 combos elude me.
    
    
    
    [3] - STUFF TO DO!
    -Until this FAQ is complete... and BEYOND!-
    ********************************************
    
    - Add the combos for all the hero characters and the rapper characters. 
    Since these combos have all appeared in the gameFAQS Def Jam Vendetta 
    message board and in a previous FAQ, I was in no rush in publishing 
    those character specific combos.
    
    UPDATE: Done-roonie!
    
    - Publishing the universal combos. These have practically become common 
    knowledge, but I'll need to print them later on.
    
    UPDATE: Slacked off there, but there are other FAQs that offer those. 
    Maybe I'll print them if I get a few mistakes that I have to end up 
    correcting.
    
    - Moves that end up changed once the character enters BLAZIN' mode. 
    Since the goal of all of these combos is to reach your BLAZIN' mode 
    faster, it behooves me to explain why it is important to reach this 
    mode. I am currently studying the BLAZIN' mode's influence on top rope 
    splashes and hardest strikes.
    
    UPDATE: Nahhhhh... You don't really need those now, do you?
    
    - In fact, I need to transform this FAQ from a combo FAQ to a 
    Combo/Blazin' mode FAQ altogether.
    
    UPDATE: Yeah, what I said above.
    
    - Maybe even analyse all the BLAZIN' moves for each character, and rate 
    them on deadliness and all around coolness. USING A STAR RATING! I AM 
    GENIUS!
    
    UPDATE: I'm not.
    
    -Maybe make this guide more printer friendly. I'll work on it.
    
    UPDATE: This would be worth looking into. If this FAQ gets updated in 
    the future, I might add this as a feature. For now, you get this.

    - So what the hell is that guy saying? -
    ****************************************
    
    Okay, I practically use my own language here, so here are translations 
    for my more obtuse symbols. For any details or additional precisions, 
    just e-mail me at hisneigeness@hotmail.com
    
    Sq: Square button
    
    X: X button
    
    Ground Strike: Press Square over a downed opponent. For running ground 
    strikes, run using the circle button, then press square over your 
    opponent. This also applies if opponent is sitting or on all fours.
    
    Head/leg submission: Press X towards a downed opponent's legs or head, 
    depending on case. This also applies if opponent is sitting or on all 
    fours.
    
    Dir.: Means pressing a direction on the directional pad as you press the 
    butoon. Any direction will do.
    
    Close/Far strike: Strikes executed up close or far away depending on the 
    case. These strikes are all weak strikes, executed by a button tap; 
    seeing how such distinction is not needed for hard and hardest strikes.
    
    Top rope strike/splash: If it says top rope strike, you need to strike a 
    standing opponent with a top rope move (press O near turnbuckle while 
    pointing in turnbuckles direction). If it says top rope splash, you need 
    to hit a downed opponent with a top rope move.
    
    Running strikes, bounce from ropes running strikes: Your running moves 
    change whether or not you bounced off the rope before executing your 
    strike. Pay attention that you hit your opponent with the correct 
    running strike. This does not apply to running ground strikes.
    
    Inside springboard attack: Some characters have springboard attacks 
    (leaping off the ropes) when they run towards the ropes and press X near 
    them. Experiment with your character to see if he has inside springboard 
    attacks.
    
    Rising Attack: When you are knocked down, hold the R1 button as you are 
    about to stand. Your character will get up in a defensive crouch. 
    Pressing the square button from that stance executes a rising attack. 
    Such attacks sometimes initiates combos...
    
    Hard: Move that needs a button HELD.
    
    Soft: Move that needs the button TAPPED.
    
    UPDATE
    
    Rope Grapples: You can maneuver your opponent if you have him in a 
    grapple. If your back is facing the ropes when you are grappling your 
    opponent, and if you press the directional button towards the ropes and 
    press X, you will execute a rope grapple.
    
    Suicidas/Running suicidas: Suicidas are performed by attacking your 
    opponent who is outside of the ring from inside the ring. There are 
    standing suicidas (while your opponent is outside, stand near the ropes 
    and press the directional button towards the ropes, then press X) and 
    there are running suicidas (while your opponent is outside and you are 
    inside, run towards the ropes while holding X).
