**** II. History ****
*********************

09/01/06
1- "Gimme a break! I love a challenge!!"
Finished every sections, later corrected some spelling mistakes and modified
some techniques.

01/02/06
1.40- "A man's true passion lies in battle."
Added the Alastor Tutorial, also modified the strategy for some parts,
corrected some spelling mistakes and rewrote some parts that were a complete
mess.

31/03/06
1.80- "Now's your chance! Finish him off!"
I revised my walkthrough and found out that it was a big mess, so I rewrote a
lot of parts. I changed a bit of the Alastor Tutorial. I added the strategy for
the two tasks I hadn't put in stage 2-1, the "Normal Way" in stage 4 and made
the walkthrough for stage 3-1.



***************************
**** III. Introduction ****
***************************

The Rainbow-V Challenge is a really hard challenge, particularly with Alastor,
but you should have unlocked Alastor if you're reading this, so you should have
mastered the game enough to stand a chance. It consist of obtaining a perfect
rate (RV) at every task of every stage. To obtain such a rate, you must have
the perfect rate (V) in each of the three aspects of the tasks which are:
V-Points, Defense and Time. Each task have a determined amount of V-Points to
collect and a determined time you must not exceed. The Defense homever, is
always the same. You must never get hit or if you do, you MUST do a Ukemi,
doing so will save the day, or at least yours. Remember that only parts where
Silvia says "Just Go For It!" until she says "Finished!" are tasks, you can
relax and do anything you want between them, like collecting canisters or life
you might have missed but remember that you can't always go back. Finishing the
Challenge will unlock Super Alastor, which possess infinite VFX. I think it's
clear that you must have finished the game at least once on the save you're
going to attempt it on to have all (or most if you want the challenge to be
harder) the power-ups nessessary to accomplish the challenge, as well as
getting used to Alastor's gameplay style. Finally, I must mention I did this
FAQ to have a guide specifically made for Alastor, since other RVs guides
aren't really accurate because of his particularities.



****************************************************
**** IV. Introduction to Alastor and the others ****
****************************************************
Here are my short descriptions of every characters you meet in the game.
}}}}WARNING{{{{
This part contain some major spoilers about the storyline of each characters.
}}}}WARNING{{{{

-Alastor-
Alastor is the sword master, half of a powerful ancient demon ruler of the
underworld. All he ever wants is to test his strenght, he isn't even interested
in the throne of evil that he is supposed to occupy. After he challenges Blue
while watching him fight in one of his movies, Blue kidnap and traps Goldie in
the movie and before he knows it, Six Majin takes him into the movie too. Now
even with his dark magic blocked by the V-Watch Blue gave him, he roams in
movieland to test his strenght, find some preys to kill, defeat Blue and save
Goldie.

-Goldie-
Goldie is the twin sister of Silvia, Alastor's girlfriend. In Alastor's
scenario, she get kidnapped by King Blue which wants to use her sacrifice to
get his hands on the true powers of Alastor. In Silvia's scenario, she get
kidnapped by King Blue which wants to sacrifice her to steal the soul of Silvia
and rule the world together. At the end in Silvia's scenario, she beg her
father (Blue) to give her a V-Watch in order to follow Silvia in her
adventures. At the end in Alastor's scenario, she beg her father (Blue) to give
her a V-Watch in order to follow Alastor in his adventures.

-Joe-
Joe is the biggest fan of Captain Blue, he never missed one single movie of
him. After King Blue kidnapped Silvia and took her into the movie, Six Machine
takes him into the movie too. With the help of the V-Watch, gift of Blue, he
become Viewtiful Joe and rush to the rescue of Silvia with his viewtiful moves.

-Silvia-
Silvia is Joe's passionate and devoted girlfriend. She get kidnapped by King
Blue while they were watching an old movie of Captain Blue and wait tirelessly
for Joe to come and save her during the whole movie. At the end, she beg her
father (Blue) to give her a V-Watch in order to follow Joe in his adventures.

-Captain Blue-
Blue is the hero of his own movies since he got mysteriously dragged in one of
them. He became a tad bit too much obsessed by his superhero powers and soon
forgot his family. He in fact became so obsessed that he decided to take his
revenge on humanity by getting out of the movie with his army and dominate the
universe. How original.

-Ivory-
Ivory is Blue's wife. Not much is known about her. She gets kidnapped by the
dark side of Blue, King Blue, which wants to get Blue's power in order to be
the supreme emperor of light and darkness. At the end, she beg her husband
(Blue) to give her a V-Watch in order to follow him in his adventures.



*********************************************
**** V. Important Necessary Informations ****
*********************************************
Here I collected all the important informations you MUST know before beginning
your RV.

-The Challenge must be made in Adult, V-Rated or Ultra V-Rated in order to get
Super Alastor. I know it seem easier in Kids but you wont get anything from it,
except anger from having to do it again. But remember this guide is based on
the supposition that you are playing on Adult.

-DT mean Devil Trigger, and UT means Untrigger. Don't forget that to trigger or
untriger it's the Z button. I'll use these words frequently.

-The S-RHOH is my term for the Slow-Zoomed Red Hot One Hundred, a great friend.
This move is performed by using Slow-Zoomed continually (Slow+Zoom+Y and hold).
This technique is the most V-Point rewarding and most powerful in the game so
you'll use it a lot of times. When I talk about S-RHOHing an enemy to death it
means to S-RHOH him until he couic. Unless I say so, don't dodge when I tell
you that.

-Ukemi is another good friend. To use it, Zoom when you are merely touching the
floor after getting hit by an enemy. Don't forget you must buy it to use it.
Also if you are not sure when you'll land, you can try to Zoom-in, Zoom-out
like crazy to get an 80 percent or so chance of sucess, this is mostly used in
stage 6 when you fight Raging Gran, or you can do like me and use your
instinct. Using a take two is the same as using an Ukemi. Why? Because if you
get hit and it takes all your life (like Raging Davidson's charge attack), you
can't make an Ukemi. But if you happen to have a take two, you will get up and
all your life is back, no penality. And when you think about it, you fall, you
get up and get life back. Similar to an Ukemi right? Ok, I shut up.

-Rock-on mode begins when you target an enemy (by dodging his attack for
example), press and hold Slow (Zoom and Mach Speed can be used at the same time
but Slow is necessary). In the rock-on mode, you'll get your V-Points
accumulated during it multiplied by the number of enemies you hit, some enemies
can be hit multiple time (Cromartys and Gelbys for example). It will end when
you release Slow, get hit or run out of VFX.

-The best way to get V-Points in a melee of normal enemies (Biancky and
Cromarty of all types) is to line them then to dodge the attacks until the one
in the front is dizzied, hit him four normal times (three punches and one kick
so you won't trigger his sword combo), DT and S-RHOH the first in the line so
he hit the others, then hit the second so he hit the others and so on. This
technique is officially known as *zemickey*'s. I used the technique before even
knowing this but I won't protest about this since *zemickey* is the first one
who claimed it as his. No offense to *zemickey*, of course. ;D

-To destroy quickly with lot of V-points Metal Leos, simply get in front of
him, dodge his first attack and DT, S-RHOH him until he slash again, UT, dodge,
DT and S-RHOH him until he slash again, UT, dodge then DT and S-RHOH him until
he die.  But if you can't manage to kill it before he spins, don't worry,
simply dodge his attacks until he gets dizzied, then S-RHOH him to death or you
can try to get far away from him and he will maybe stop. Thanks to *zemickey*
for the technique.

-The Bianco Billy technique I invented is as far as I know the best way to kill
them quickly with a lot of V-Points. Get in front of him, and wait until he
begin to spin his guns. Right when he's gonna fire, DT and Slow punch, if you
did this quickly and in the right order, you just punched the bullet. UT and
run to him, he's dizzied now, if you did everything correctly. Make sure he got
a wall behind him. Punch him twice normally then DT and Slow. Hold slow and
punch him normally, jump to him and punch him again, then use a kick to finish
him. You just got 160 V-Points, if my memory is good.

-Use Mach Speed when in Slow to move faster then you normally do in Slow.

-Don't think, when I say to UT/DT there IS a reason. Because I have the answer
to the meaning of life.

-To use your Super Alastor you must make a new game then when you select your
character, put your cursor over Alastor then press and hold Z until the word
"super" appear over Alastor then accept. You must have finished the challenge
for this to work, of course.

**** VII. Alastor Tutorial ****
*******************************
Since most people have difficulties mastering Alastor, I made this tutorial
that explains everything about how to control Alastor. First, we will go over
the basics you learn in the game, as well as Alastor's little details that
makes him so special


*** VII.I Controls ***
**********************
These are the default action controls, I recommand you to stick with those.

-Control Pad: Move Joe around (not recommended)
-Control Stick (up): High Dodge/Make Alastor fall slower (if you jump while
high dodging it will be counted as a Air Hike)
-Control Stick (down): Low Dodge/Make Alastor fall faster (remember that
Alastor will hover slowly automatically when transformed, you have to make him
fall manually)
-Control Stick (left/right): Move Alastor around (works when hovering too)
-L Button: VFX Slow
-R Button: VFX Mach Speed
-C Stick(up): Zoom-In (not recommended)
-C Stick (down): Zoom-Out (not recommended)

-Y Button: Punch
-X Button: Kick
-A Button: Jump: Air Hike
-B Button: Zoom-In/Zoom-Out
-Start/Pause: Pause the game


*** VII.II VFX ***
******************
These are all the powers you gain as a demon from the underworld.

-1/6 Show No Fear-
"With a fearless grin, he sidesteps the most vicious attack. His life-or-death
battles only serve to sharpen his ninja instincts!"
This is simple, when an enemy attacks you low, a skull mark will tell you so.
When you see it, high dodge. This will cause the enemy to spin and become
dizzy. When dizzy the enemies have their defense weakened and you can start a
Rock-On combo by holding slow and hitting them.

-2/6 War Dance-
"Quailing before Alastor's rage, the enemy flails helplessly. His last vision
is of a dance of death; a demon and its prey."
Just like before, when an enemy attacks you high, a skull mark will tell you
so. When you see it, low dodge. This will cause the enemy to spin and become
dizzy. When dizzy the enemies have their defense weakened and you can start a
Rock-On combo by holding slow and hitting them.

-3/6 Invincible Demon
"This demon from the past fights with VFX! When the energy reaches Full, press
the Z Button to pull the Devil Trigger!"
This is VFX Slow. When using it, everythings turns slow, hence it's name.
Slow's characteristics are...
-Some enemies that can't be hurt during certain attacks or when they have an
aura can be hurt while in Slow.
-Dodging is easier and make some attacks that can't be dodged are dodgeable by
using the auto-dodge (like with bullets).
-Some attacks can also be used to your advantage by sending them back to your
opponents.
-Rock-on mode can be activated

-4/6 Kamikaze Demon-
"Alastor the Destroyer- His anger strikes like a thunderbolt from the blue,
leaving a trail of charred destruction in its wake.- from "Delinquent Devils"
Vatican Library Special Edition"
This is VFX Mach Speed. When using it, everythings becomes accelerated, you AND
the enemies. Mach Speed's characteristics are...
-You can hit multiple enemies as well as things in the background by hitting
something while in Mach Speed, which sends after-images.

-5/6 Demons Don't Cry-
"The last VFX Power. Before the mighty beast, enemies stand petrified. More
petrifying than Medusa, Alastor's gaze promises death to all who behold him."
This is VFX Zoom. When using it, the camera zooms on you and you make an
awesome pose. Zoom's characteristics are...
-The weak enemies shake at the sight of you.
-When you attacks while you are in Zoom-in,holding the button will make Alastor
continue his attack until you let go of it or until you run out of VFX.
-In puzzles, it's mainly used to hit those poles you must hit 5 times
simultaneously.

-6/6 A Battle Out of Legend-
"He rises towards the sky like a lightning blade, and descends to earth with
the power of an earthquake. In a realm beyond imagination, a legendary battle
is about to begin!"
This is again VFX Zoom. This time it's about the unique powers you get while
using Zoom-In. These are...
-When you jump by using it, Alastor will use Vortex.
-When you use it when you fall, Alastor will do Shockwave, the shockwave
created by this attack will hit anything near the ground within about a 5 foot
radius.


*** VII.III Moves ***
*********************
Alastor possess most of those moves to begin with but he needs to buy some.
Some needs him to have his transformation activated and sometimes Mach Speed or
Zoom.

_Normal Moves_
-Punch (Y): A simple, good punch.
-Kick (X): A simple, good kick
-Punch Combo (Y,Y,Y,Y,Y): Three punches, Alastor hit with his sword and another
punch.
-Kick Combo (X,X,X,X,X): Five kicks.
-Uppercut (down+Y): Alastor uppercut the enemy high in the air.
-Trip (down+X): Alastor kicks the enemy in the legs.

{Transformed Moves}
-Air Alastor (in the air, Y+X+Y+X... until forever if you want): Nothing
special, it only looks nice. Bought.
-Sliding (down+X): Alastor will slide for about 6 foots. Bought.
-Ultra Violet Kick aka UVK (in the air, down+X): Alastor will do a powerful
drop kick in whatever direction you face. Bought.

*VFX Moves*
-Vortex (Zoom+jump): Alastor will jump in the air while spinning and will have
a purple aura, you can double jump with this too.
-Shockwave (fall+Zoom): Alastor will fall rapidly to the ground like an arrow
and will have a purple aura. This create a shockwave. Best used with Slow.
-Spinning Kick (Zoom+X): Alastor will spin horizontally while kicking. It kicks
on the left and on the right sides at the same times. You are invincible as
long as you keep doing it.
-Red Hot One Hundred aka RHOH (Zoom+Y): Alastor will punch continually. This is
the most powerful attack of the game if used with Slow.
-After-Images Level 1/2/3 (Mach Speed+Y or X and hold): If you hit something
repeatedly in Mach Speed, images of Alastor will fly to something near or in
the background that can be hit.
-Stylish Forever aka SF (right after auto-dodging, Zoom-In): After you
auto-dodge, if you Zoom-In Alastor will strike a pose so stylish enemies will
be hurt. Best combined with Slow. Bought.
-Ukemi (before hitting the ground after hit, Zoom-In): If you ever get hit and
you are sent flying, you can save your rank by using Zoom-In right before you
hit the ground. The best way to do this is by using Slow a before entering the
"ground zone" and using Zoom at the right moment. Sometimes, Slow makes the
ground too much dark to see, so you'll have to either rely on your instinct (my
favorite) or you can press B as fast as you can while holding Slow to get an
80% or so chance to succeed. Bought.


*** VII.IV Tips for improvement ***
***********************************
Those are little tips concerning Alastor that should improve your skills.

-You should practice Ukemis a lot, they are life savers and at the same time
can be very difficult and tricky to pull off (thinking about the disappearing
floor when zooming for absolutely no reason).
-When DT, remember Alastor floats because of his wings. As annoying it can be,
this might come in handy sometimes. Just remember, if you wish to hit the
ground, you must either hold down to make him fall of UT, which is sometimes
more risky but a lot of times useful and rewarding.
-When your VFX is not absolutely needed or when you get a few seconds free of
enemies or tasks, UT immediately. Remember that VFX is crucial and a minimum
(the first bar filled) is *needed* to be able to DT.
-When you are not DT, you can still air hike, a feature of Alastor which is
required in some cases, seriously.
-SF is a strange move. It is both useful and deadly, it depends on when and how
you use it. Using it to rack some points, to get rid of some annoying little
enemies, to get out of a tight situation and maybe all at once is a good idea.
On the other hand, your VFX is assured to run out when it's used, you will be
left vulnerable for a little while and a lot of enemies don't care about it and
are unaffected. This move should only be used when necessary and only when your
VFX bar is about to reach its limit.



*********************************
**** VIII. Alastor The Devil ****
*********************************
This stage is not too hard,  there are a lot of tasks before the first save,
which can be annoying. The only real threats to your sucess are the Corridor
and the two Barrel tasks.


***Part One***
**************

_First Bianckys_
Don't get too close to the box to let the Biancky stand in front of you. DT,
then S-RHOH him and the other one to death and UT. Wait until the third one
comes down, DT and S-RHOH him to death. You can now proceed.

_Four Enemies_
Wait until the Biancky and the Biancky-Primas are lined up and you are to the
left of them, DT, dizzy the Biancky and S-RHOH him. Run to the Biancky-Primas
(which should be lying on the floor now), S-RHOH him twice and give a last
S-RHOH to destroy the Biancky then UT. Now a Biancky and a Biancky Primas
should be to your left. Repeat the process.

_Captain Blue_
As soon as Blue appear in front of you, S-RHOH him twice. Finished, not too
though huh?

_First Joker_
When the cutscene begin, press Z to skip it, then immediately S-RHOH in front
of you until he's dead. Then put the coin in the Machine Slot. Get the three
coins symbols, jump high and punch/kick in the air until you got all the coins.
Now get the three viewtiful symbols, get the key and Mach Speed to the exit.
*Note: To get a good time in this task, you must be quick with the Machine
Slot. Press Slow/ Have a look/Release if not satisfied/Press Slow Again etc
until you get the 3 symbols you need. UT if you begin to run out of VFX and
then DT when you got enough. Don't let the VFX run out because you might hit
out of slow, thus not getting the correct symbol.

_Library_
Let the Bianco Billy begin to spin his guns, then use the Bianco Billy
technique (refer to the important necessary informations part). Now turn to
face left, and wait for the Bianckys. Make sure the Bianckys are lined up and
dodge the first one's attack. Punch him twice then DT and use the  technique UT
when they are all finished. When the books comes out, kick it to the right
until they get on the switch. Now quickly, jumps twice and Dragon Kick to hit
the door.
*Note: The Bianco Billy trick is a little hard at the beginning, make sure to
master it since you will use it about each time you see one.

_Banquet Hall_
As soon as the task begins, walk a bit to get the two Verdys to come out. Get
between them, DT and Slow to get them to fall to each of your sides. Dodge both
of their attacks (DT, use Slow and UT if necessary), punch both TWO times each,
DT and S-RHOH both of them. Now UT to the other end of the table until you see
the Verdy and get in the middle of them. When your VFX is back, repeat what you
have done with the others. Now you can either from the end of the table launch
a Round Trip at the switch (this is the easiest but it can fail) or jump on the
platform, DT, Slow to get the platform to go down and slide to the switch.
After having done either of them, Mach Speed slide to the chandelier and jump
on it, UT, then when you're all the way up, DT and Mach Speed to the end.

_Corridor_
This is more though, run under the little chandelier to make the Biancky-Primas
appear. Dodge the attacks of both of them, punch both twice and DT, Slow, kick
the right one in the armor and uppercup the left one in the little chandelier.
Repeat on the other Biancky-Primas until you get the key, then run to the door.
*Note: It's important to kick the Biancky Primas to your right into the armor
before sending the other in the little chandelier, because if the little
chandelier falls on the left one before you kicked him, he will get destroyed.

_Black Thunder_
As soon as you get the control of yourself, Mach Speed to the right until you
are at the top of the stairs. UT and get the canisters. When the Black Thunder
comes back and begins to shoot, jump, Air Hike and punch/kick in the air until
he stop shooting. Repeat until he lets out Bianckys. Dodge one's attack, S-RHOH
him and another one in the wall, S-RHOH the third one into the Black Thunder as
well as the fourth one and he's probably dead. If not, S-RHOH him until he's
destroyed.

<Break Time>
Nothing special to buy, maybe some Round Trips for Charles The Third but it's
far from being necessary.
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************

_Water Barrels_
Right when you get control of yourself, walk forward a bit, then Slow, jump to
the bat and S-RHOH him. The drop of water should have activated the switch by
now. Sprint to the right with quick hits on Mach Speed and jump over the
barrels until you reach the end. But before exiting S-RHOH one-two bats so you
get enough points. You can now proceed.

_Captain Blue Second_
All you have to do is S-RHOH him, but be sure to hit him two or three times on
is blue shield.

_Barrel_
Mach Speed to the right until a Biancky appear to your left, S-RHOH him to
death. Do the same for EVERY Biancky and then you can Mach Speed to the end.

_Spiked Barrel_
Basically the same as the last barrel, except this barrel seems to be faster,
be really careful. Of course, you can turn the situation in your favor by using
a Ukemi after getting hit by him, but I warn you, it's hard because the stairs
needs an "uncertain ground Ukemi" (refer to the Ukemi training section).

_Dark Fiend, Charles The Third_
This is the easiest of all the bosses. Of course it's the first one so it's
kinda obvious. As soon as the fight begins, jump and UVK him or simply send a
Round Trip to knock him out of thin air. Now all you have to do is S-RHOH him
and knock him out of thin air again when he gets up with another UVK or Round
Trip and repeat if he is not already dead. Fast huh?



**********************************
**** IX. Some Like It Red Hot ****
**********************************
If you're enough satisfied of the first stage being completed, let's continue
shall we? This stage isn't really though but the Bus part in the beginning is
REALLY annoying, since if you miss it, you must start over from the beggining.


***Part One***
**************

_Unnecessary Task One; Red Canister _
This task can be found by going left at the beginning of the stage. As soon as
you trigger it, go completely to the left of the screen. Line the enemies,
dizzy the first one and apply the  technique. The best way to not get hit by
any missile is to send a Biancky in it. After applying the  technique four or
five times all the enemies should be dead.
*Note: If one of the Verdys go up high and you can reach him, either Air Hike
as high as you can and throw a Round Trip or wait for him to launch a missile
and send it back to him.

_Twin Billy_
Get in front of the first Bianco Billy, then use the Bianco Billy technique.
Jump on the above platform and get to the other Billy. Repeat the technique
with this one and you got your RV.

_Unnecessary Task Two; Captain Blue Third_
This task can be found by going where you usually get the Zoom VFX. Fight him
as usual, S-RHOH him and make sure to land a few hits on his blue shield.

_Water Sewers_
When the task begins, UT and fall off the platform. From there, DT and Air
Hike, Alastor's wings are finally useful for the RV. After the door closes
behind you, walk forward to make appear to Verdys. Slow when you're between
them to get one on each of your sides. Dizzy both, then punch the left one
twice then S-RHOH the left one twice, and the right one once, if he's not hit
already (which is good). now make appear two other Verdys and repeat. You
should get at least 400 points in total. Now Mach Speed to the exit. Jump on
the floating platform, UT and wait. DT and Mach Speed when the lasers already
passed and jump to the flag.

_Second Joker_
Go next to the first Biancky and wait for him to try to hit you. DT, Stylish
Forever and hold to get a maximum of V-Points. Repeat until you did it 7 times.
Now Mach Speed slide to the electricity, UT and wait. DT and Slow the
electricity to open the door, then Mach Speed slide through the door and until
the Joker cutscene appears.  Run to him and use a Dragon Kick to stop any
attack he's beginning. S-RHOH him to death, then do as usual with the Machine
Slot.

_Eight Enemies_
Walk around to trigger the enemies, DT and Slow down to make land the Verdys,
then UT to recover some VFX, DT and use the  technique. I'd say get about 800
points, then destroy what's left the most quickly as possible.

_Trap_
UT, and stay where you are until the Bianckys are placed to both of your sides.
Jump over the three Biancky to your right and turn around to face the first.
Dizzy him and use the  technique to get at least 1000 points. When the Rosettas
come, simply S-RHOH them until they die.
*Note: It's REALLY important to not get hit during that part and to leave the
hamburger box above you untouched. You will soon see why.

_Cat-Drived Bus_
As soon as possible, WITHOUT SLOWING, Zoom and double jump to break the
hamburger box, you MUST ABSOLUTELY NOT MOVE. After the second jump, UT and
punch/kick in the air until the bus is under you and let yourself fall on it.
When the bus is about to climb the ramp, DT and Slow, to get the reactors of
the bus at full power, then let go of Slow and immediately Mach Speed. You
should reach the road.
*Note: If you don't reach the road, you won't have enough VFX to DT and UVK to
the road, so immediately reset. Also, it's possible that you may not start this
task immediately under the hamburger box, if it happens go under it as fast as
possible.

_Aerial Attack_
Do as you did with the first Black Thunder, dodge the bullets until some
Bianckys are let out to attack you, dizzy them, send two in the Harrier and
S-RHOH the rest. Repeat with the second Harrier. Don't worry, this is an easy
task.
*Note: To dodge to bullets, it's better to simply go in Slow and hold Mach
Speed to run under the bullets, the auto-dodge consume too much VFX, don't
think or try to use it.
*Note: You can deal half of a life bar of damage while getting a decent amount
of V-Points by using a Slow-Zoomed Round Trip when one of them are on the
ground, but make sure that the Round Trip hits him completely, otherwise it's
just a waste of VFX and time.

<Break Time>
Aaah, finally : ). Buy some Shoking Pinks for the next part, and again, don't
forget to save. Thinking of taking a break would be good too, even if the
hardest part of the stage is gone, this part still contains tricky parts. The
fun is coming : )
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************

_Entrance Hall_
Go to the Bianco Billy, send him back his bullet and S-RHOH him, then S-RHOH
the Biancky and the Biancky Primas. When the other Bianco Billy, Biancky and
Biancky Primas appear, repeat the same tactic. Then use the  technique on the
other enemies until none seems to appear anymore. Then climb the big chandelier
and at the top, DT, Zoom-in and jump to activate the switch. Then Mach Speed
kick (or punch, although I think kicks are better) the statues, collect the
gems and Mach Speed to the door.
*Note: A good way to get the gems really fast is to destroy the left statue
first, collect the gem and then destroy the right statue. Put the gem in the
door and do a really high Air Hike and the left gem should magically come
through the floor to you.

_The Private Frenzy_
Air Hike, DT at the peak of your Air Hike and Slow to get the platform to your
level. Jump on it then Air Hike to reach the little chandelier and destroy it.
UT, take the key and drop to the door, now proceed to the next room. Use the
techique on the Bianckys until the two Red Leaders appear. Dodge one's attack
and immediately S-RHOH him and the other. Collect the books, put them in then
climb the bookshelve, DT and Zoom-in jump to break the ceiling. Go through the
door and wait for the Bianco Billy to come out. Then, when he does, DT, S-RHOH
him and the other one coming. After that, take out a Shoking Pink, and Mach
Speed punch it to break the pink box in the background. Collect the red bottle
and break through the ground on the left. Simply DT and S-RHOH the Red Leader
to death, then head through the door. Now this is the fun part I was talking
about. Dodge the attacks of the Biancky, then uppercup one in the ceiling (to
get the red canister) and S-RHOH the rest until you have no more VFX. If you
didn't killed everything, destroy the rest anyway you want, take the key and
proceed.

_Bombing_
DT and Mach Speed the bomb until the box in the background break, then punch it
and Slow until it breaks open the door and UT. Enter the room,  DT, S-RHOH the
bomb and jump over the Red Leader. Slow when the bomb is about to explodes to
make it break the door. Enter the little room, S-RHOH the Rosettato death and
take the key. Now  the enemies to get a maximum of point. When all the enemies
are gone, Slow uppercup the bomb, then when it reaches the ceiling, kick it to
the left and hold slow. The ceiling should be destroyed, go through it and
some of the enemies there. Then go to the door, take out a Shoking Pink to
destroy it and drop down. Before putting the key in  the two boxers.

_Third Joker_
the Bianckys in this room and get the most points possible. When you finished
them off, press the switch and climb the stairs. DT and Mach Speed to the exit.
When the cutscene starts, skip it with Z and S-RHOH the Joker to death. Do as
usual with the Machine Slot and exit left. S-RHOH the Billy to death and go
right. Go down through the bath, S-RHOH the Rosetta to death, collect the key
and run to the exit.

_Iron Ogre, Hulk Davidson_
Get in front of him and wait until he will begin to swing his axe. Dodge high,
then DT and S-RHOH him eight times and UT. Dodge high again, DT, S-RHOH him
eight times again and UT. Now dodge a third time but this time, S-RHOH him
twice only. He will now try to rush at you. Simply jump on one of the
chandelier and he will hit the wall, and get dizzied. Now go to him and S-RHOH
him eight times. Repeat this process until he dies. Try not to hit him more
then I said or do anything else then the tactic or he will probably drop fire
bombs or send missiles. If he drops fire bombs, Mach Speed to get rid of the
fire, jump on one of the chandelier and wait for him to hit the wall. If he
sends missiles, the best is to continue the tactic and to ignore them and dodge
them as much as you can, he wil stop sending them.



********************************************
**** X. 2,000,000 Leagues Under The Sea ****
********************************************
Now you must be very proud, but don't let your guard down. This time, the whole
stage might may probably make you want to throw your controller in the wall but
it can be done with some practice. Some really long practice.


***Part One***
**************

_First Flight_
You should have a look at those tips, because my walkthrough here is a little
bit hard to follow.

-When you get a group of five little enemies (such as bats), go up and down
while shooting and tapping Mach Speed, the shots should go like this / and \,
creating a barrage which should take out the group after three shots (the shots
should look like this: \/\)
-When you get to the part where you get a lots of bomb-diving fishes, (you
should have gotten a red bottle) Zoom-in, Mach Speed and use a spin kick, until
there is no more.
-To kill the surfing Cromartys or Verdys, simply get in front of them, Zoom-in
and punch, this is a variant of the Vortex.
-If a Verdy send a missile and get somewhere you can't see him, don't chase
him, simply send the missile back to him by shooting him. Make sure you
Slow-Zoom the missile's explosion, otherwise it's a missed opportunity.
-To get rid of the Harrier, get in front of the cockpit in Slow a bit higher
then it's level, Alternatively, press Y and X while holding slow. This is the
best way I know of. If he's going to let out missiles, go in front of him and
Slow spin kick, the missiles will do major damage to him combined with your
spin kick.
-Points in this isn't the problem, but don't forget to kill the most enemies
possible.
-Time is very precious, so only go in Slow when necessary, and use Mach Speed
often.
-You cannot use any kind of Ukemi, so you CANNOT get hit.

So when you begin, you're in Six Machine, which means you cannot DT or UT, the
VFX works like anybody else's right now. First, a group of bats should appears
high, then another one low and another one high, kill them, then go as low as
you can and keep firing in /\/ until two groups of pirhanas are dead. Now two
groups of bats should appear, high and low, kill them and the two other groups
coming. Now you'll hear a Verdy launching a missile and he'll try to get to the
other side, kill before he does with a Slow-Zoom punch. Now go high and Mach
Speed spin kick until the fishes are dead, go low and repeat. Kill the other
Verdys coming and kill the groups of bats. Go low and kill the pirhanas and the
group of bats coming low. Now three Verdys should be coming, packed together,
kill them all with one or two Slow-Zoom punches. Now destroy the two new groups
of bats and the group of fishes, kill the Cromarty and get the Red Bottle. Stay
in Mach Speed and get rid of the five next groups of bats. Two Cromartys and a
Verdy should be coming, kill them all with a single Slow-Zoom punch.
Immediately after, go low and use a Mach Speed spin kick continually to destroy
the six groups of fishes coming at you. Now another Verdy and this time three
Cromartys should come shortly after, get rid of them as well as the four
Cromartys and four Verdys right after, making sure to kill the highest Cromarty
first to get the Red Bottle, shoot any missiles coming at you. Now you are
against the Harrier, as soon as you can, hold Slow and get in front of him
while continuously shooting and dropping bombs. If he doesn't die before going
to the other side, evade attacks until he get to the right side and repeat the
tactic. If he throws missiles at you, get at the level of the cockpit and Slow
spin kick continuously, he'll die soon.


<Break Time>
Buy some Round Trips, you shall need one at least. Save, and take a break to
relax a bit, the next part is kinda hard to get the hang of.
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************

_Underwater _
Before the task, collect most of the canisters in the hamburger boxes, there
are fourthy of them, try to collect between fourthy and thirty-five. Now, when
the task begins, try to get between the the two Biancky Primas on the right.
Dodge both attacks and punch normally three times the two. Now be quick, jump
over the one to your right and DT, S-RHOH him to the left so that he hits all
the others and continue with the  technique. When the Rosettas arrive, S-RHOH
them to death, and do the same for the two Bianco Billys. Now after the
cutscene, Mach Speed slide to the remote control. After the other cutscene,
Mach Speed slide to the flying platform and get it near the switch. Now jump on
it, Mach Speed to get it over the water and Air Hike to reach the pink box.
S-RHOH the pink box and collect the juice, now Mach Speed down and get in front
of the door. When your heard that the platform is at the correct place, quickly
slow down and when you see that it will land on the switch, slide, you will get
in the little pace under the door while it opens, it might save you crucial
time. Now Mach Speed a bit to get the task to end, but don't Mach Speed too
far, or you won't see your result.

_Biancky Chamber_
Dodge the first Biancky's attack and punch him normally three times. Now  them,
and follow them in Mach Speed, but don't let go of Slow. Look closely to the
floor, and when you reached some sort of line, wait there for two more Bianckys
to appear. Again, S-RHOH them and continue. When you reached another line (this
one must be close to the end of the chamber), wait again and  the two last
Biancky. Then let go of Slow.
*Note: Before leaving it's important to make the two switch puzzle, to get the
L.I.V. and the red bottle!

_Guard Chamber One_
You must have gotten the red bottle from the last room, or it will be harder.
Now dodge the first Biancky's attack, walk a bit to get him under the guard and
Slow uppercup him into it, then S-RHOH the other one. Mach Speed without
letting go of Slow. When you reached one of those "line" on the floor, wait for
the two Bianckys, S-RHOH the first one, then push the other one at the right
position, then kick him in the other guard.
*Note: Before exiting, and this is really important, go at the pink box in the
background and Mach Speed a shoking pink to get the red bottle. Now  the rest
of the Bianckys to get a multiplier of two before proceeding in the next room.

_Guard Chamber Two_
You should have a multiplier of two and still be in Rock-on mode. When the
Bianco Billy comes out, he should jump in the air. Let him shoot, and when he
gets to the ground, kick him. If done correctly, he'll fly in the first Guard,
hit a hamburge box and hit the other Guard.

_Joker Chamber_
When the cutscene begins, as usual press Z to skip it and S-RHOH the Joker to
death. Now do as usual with the Machine Slot, when you get the card key Mach
Speed to thew slot and this will end the task.

_Comeback_
Now this is the worst part of the stage. When the three Red Leaders arrive,
melee them and proceed to the next room, be sure to have plenty of VFX left.
When the door closes behind you, Mach Speed until you get in front of the mine
launcher, jump over it and S-RHOH it twice. Now get between the two guards. Now
this is more or less chance. Seize the first opportunity and get both Verdys to
the ground. Send both in a guard. If you missed a guard, you can send one of
the next two Verdys into the remaining guard and S-RHOH the other one. Repeat
for the next room. The other room is a little trickier (the one that was before
the Biancky Chamber). Again, Mach Speed to the mine launcher and S-RHOH him
twice in the back. Now let immediately go out of Slow or you will get hit by
the guard and get out of the room unvoluntarely. Now Mach Speed to the right of
the guard. Now you'll need a lot of luck to get the three verdys to the ground.
When you did got them to the ground, dizzy one and send him into the guard. Now
S-RHOH the two Verdys without letting them enough time to escape. Now Mach
Speed to the end of the task.

_Aquatic Terror, Gran Bruce_
When the battle begins, let him spit his junk to get four Stylish Forevers,
four I said. Now when you get the occasion, S-RHOH him eight times and go away
a bit to avoid his little tornado. Right after his tornado, go back to him and
S-RHOH him again eight times. He should be dead now. If not, he will use his
bite attack. jump over him when he comes in your direction until he's tired.
Now S-RHOH him to death.



**********************************
**** XI. The Viewtiful Escape ****
**********************************
Now this is the really fun stage. Because there is simply two task you *must*
complete!!! Well, you can do the other tasks but you should not do them if you
are waiting eagerly to have your Super Al.

[}SHORT WAY{]

***Part One***
**************

_Obstacle Course_
Remember that since this task will never ends, you won't get rated on this one,
so if you get hit, don't get any V-Points or take hours it ain't a problem.
When it begins collect as much as you can of the canisters (including the ones
in the cracked floor/ceiling) until you get to the place with the remote
control. Wait until a torpedo passes over you then get up and jump where you
usually places the Flying Platform to get four of the five canister (you can't
reach the fifth). Wait until another torpedo passes, then Mach Speed to the
right, collect the bunch of canisters then jump where there is some sort of
hole in the ceiling. Wait there until the torpedo passes, then Mach Speed to
where the torpedos comes from. Jump on the next-launched torpedo and Mach Speed
to the right until you get behind it. Now proceed like you do usually between
the torpedoes until you get to another direction panel. Go down, and you will
get to Another Joe. If you have any problem with this part just read it again
;) .

<Break Time>
If you got hit by the torpedos, get some hamburger to regenerate your life.
Otherwise, buy at least two Round Trips (twenty), if Another Joe makes clones
you shall need them.
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************


_Another Joe_
When the battle begins, run to him and S-RHOH him four times. He will do a Red
Hot Kick, use it to get a SF. Follow him, S-RHOH him four times, SF when he
make his Red Hot Kick. After this, follow him everywhere and never let him
escape. When you get to him, DT, S-RHOH him five times and do a Spin Kick, UT
while doing the Spin Kick. Why a Spin Kick you ask? Because after five S-RHOHs,
Another Joe will make a Spin Kick, and when you make a Spin Kick, you are
merely invincible. So when both of you make one, no one gets damaged. If you
let, by accident, AJ make clones, if they are around you, Slow-Round Trip them
to make the explosion get the others. If they are around him, do the same, but
if he sends clones everywhere on the platforms, send a lot of Round Trips
without Slowing. The Round Trips will destroy a lot of clones, and might hit
AJ, which will stop him doing his attacks, which is even better.

_Escape_
When it begins, Mach Speed to then end of the floor, UT and jump until you get
as high as you can. Now Slow uppercup the torpedo then slide twice, still in
Slow to get to the other side. Repeat with the other torpedo. Now jump up the
platforms until you get on the top of the torpedo. Now DT and Slow to get his
reactor to get maxed and let go. When you get near a platform, jump on it. Now
you must be quick, wait for an opening and jump when the lasers are out of the
way. Always look out for both the lasers, the one over you and the one over the
platform. When both are out of the way you can jump, if you go like this you
will get to the top soon. When you see the exit, use the two last lasers to get
four SFs, then escape.


[}NORMAL WAY{]

***Part One***
**************


_Obstacle Course_
Now this is a really hard task for the beginning, this task has one of the
hardest to accomplish time. As soon as you can, Mach Speed to the hole to the
right of the cracked floor and wait for the torpedo to pass, S-RHOH an enemy
meanwhile to get the required points. Then Mach Speed to the right until you
get to the cracked floor in front of the panel and use a Shockwave to destroy
it. Then Mach Speed left until you get on another cracked floor and break it,
hold Slow immediately after to make the floating platform stay safe. Hold Slow
and DT/UT periodically until the torpedo passed. Run to the right by pressing
Mach Speed regularly but not too long, otherwise the platform which should
following you will get stuck in the ceiling. When you get in the hole in front
of the panel, hide in it and hold Slow to prevent the platform from getting
struck by the torpedo. When it passed, Mach Speed to the right of the panel and
wait for the platform to get to you. Jump on it and Mach Speed to get to the
top and hit the flag.

_Bridge_
Go up and you'll meet the first Gelby in the game. Go up to him and hit him
normally a few times. Your hits should bounce off and make him attacke you. If
he draws his arm, jump over him, if he shout, duck. either way, you'll get
behind him. S-RHOH him five times in the back to kill him, collect the key and
bring it to the left to turn the submarine around.

<Break Time>
The save is pretty early, don't you think? Oh well, save and buy one or two
Round Trips, you will need them.
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************

_Upside-Down Sub_
Immediately go to the right just enough to be safe from the electric of the
Guard and throw a Slow-Round Trip to destroy it. Hold Slow to get on the
platform, Mach Speed to get the door open and repeat the tactic with the other
Guard. Go up and Mach Speed to the right, making sure that you don't fall in a
hole or jump in the torpedoes. When you get to the launching place, time it
right and Mach Speed slide to the right, drop through the platforms, wait, Mach
Speed slide to the left, drop through the platforms, then finally Mach Speed
slide right. Mach Speed hit a Biancky to break the pink box in the back and use
the Red Bottle to melee them until there's none left, then proceed. On your
way, be careful to stop every spinning things you see, particularly the one in
the ceiling and be careful to not be hit by the baseballs the the Gelby might
throw at you. Destroy the Gelby then proceed.

_Machinery Room_
Slow punch the Verdys to make them fall then melee both them and the Gelby. Use
a spin kick on the poles to activate them and make a quick mental note of where
each points you must hit. Hit them and proceed.

<Break Time>
Buy a few Round Trips and go on.
<Break Time>

_Another Joe_
When the battle begins, run to him and S-RHOH him four times. He will do a Red
Hot Kick, use it to get a SF. Follow him, S-RHOH him four times, SF when he
make his Red Hot Kick. After this, follow him everywhere and never let him
escape. When you get to him, DT, S-RHOH him five times and do a Spin Kick, UT
while doing the Spin Kick. Why a Spin Kick you ask? Because after five S-RHOHs,
Another Joe will make a Spin Kick, and when you make a Spin Kick, you are
merely invincible. So when both of you make one, no one gets damaged. If you
let, by accident, AJ make clones, if they are around you, Slow-Round Trip them
to make the explosion get the others. If they are around him, do the same, but
if he sends clones everywhere on the platforms, send a lot of Round Trips
without Slowing. The Round Trips will destroy a lot of clones, and might hit
AJ, which will stop him doing his attacks, which is even better. Repeat the
tactic until he dies.

_Escape_
When it begins, Mach Speed slide to the right end, UT and jump until you get as
high as you can. Now Slow uppercup the torpedo then slide twice, still in Slow
to get to the other side. Repeat with the other torpedo. Now jump up the
platforms until you get on the top of the torpedo. DT and Slow to get his
reactor maxed and let go. When you get near a platform, jump on it. Now you
must be quick, wait for an opening and jump when the lasers are out of the way.
Always look out for both the lasers, the one over you and the one over the
platform. When both are out of the way you can jump, if you go like this you
will get to the top soon. When you see the exit, use the two last lasers to get
four SFs, then escape.


**************************************
**** XII. The Midnight Thunderboy ****
**************************************
This one's really easy, except the Train part which is really annyoing
sometimes, since you might get hit like an idiot a lot of times. You should
pass the first part of the stage in one try, just as I did ; ) . Oh, and don't
forget to buy some shoking pinks.


***Part One***
**************

_Tank_
Wait until the Bianckys are lined up in front of you, (at least three) dizzy
the first one then send him into the Tank. Send two other Bianckys into the
Tank and he's finished. Fast, huh?

_Harrier_
Before the challenge, DO NOT DESTROY THE PINK BOX. Keep avoiding him until he
sends a bunch of Cromartys. Dizzy one and send it in the Harrier, do the same
for everyone of them. If the Harrier isn't finished already, repeat the same
tactic and make sure to egt the coins. Before the next challenge, break the
pink box to the left of the sewer entrance and collect the Red Bottle.

_Melting Sewers_
Collect the canister until you get to the pink box. S-RHOH it and take the
hamburger. Now Air Hike to the left to go back on the corner near the ceiling.
Make sure you are not DT, jump once to the right, when you reach as far as you
can Air Hike, still going right and DT to float slowly to the platform. When
the door close, I assume you still have the Red Bottle effects, take out a
shocking pink while facing the door and Mach Speed punch it until you get the
heat aura. Mach Speed slide through the lava and jump on the last flying
platform. Mach Speed and be careful for the fire coming out. When you're high
enough, jump on the next platform, Air Hike to the right and reach for the
piece of land before the flag. S-RHOH the two Rosettas to death and hit the
flag. Now you can think of getting back and fetching your missing canisters
(don't forget those on the secret place after the flag).

_Bomb Joker_
As usual, S-RHOH him to death after skipping his cutscene. Do as usual with the
Machine Slot, get the coins, then get the Vs, but this time the Vs will give
you a red canister. Now jump on the Machine Slot, Air Hike and destroy the pink
box. Collect the canister then DT, Mach Speed to the right until you get to the
hole. UT and wait for your VFX to come back. Now DT, take out a shoking pink
(make sure your facing the hole) and it should go in the hole. Now immediately
jump on the Machine Slot and Slow down. Let the explosion happens in Slow for
some time then let go of Slow.

_Baddies and Harrier_
Line up the Bianckys, dizzy one and use the melee technique. melee the two
other Bianckys that will appear. Then you will get four Cromartys. Just dizzy
one and melee them. Now you shall get two Gelbys. S-RHOH them in the back when
they don't know where you are. Now Mach Speed as fast as you can until you get
to the last bomb thrower. Get in front of it, this will trigger the Harrier.
Now dispose of the Harrier the same way then the last one, simply don't forget
that you do not have unlimited VFX this time.
*Note: Before leaving, Mach Speed a shoking pink in front of a building called
"Roses" to get a red bottle. Thanks to *zemickey* for this information.

_Tank and Harrier_
You should have a red bottle now. This is easy, do as you did with the last
Tank, send dizzied Bianckys in it. Now an Harrier should come, Do exactly as
you did with the last, S-RHOH him to death.

<Break Time>
This was easy huh? : ) . but the annoying part comes, so BEWARE! Nothing
special to buy, maybe some Round Trips for Alastor but it ain't necessary.
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************

_Train-ing_
As soon as it begins, Mach Speed to the canisters and drop down. Mach Speed to
get all the canisters in there then S-RHOH the pink box to get a red bottle,
now I found a really useful technique. Get the Biancky trapped between you and
a wall, dizzy him then jump and pound on him not in Zoom-in. If you did it
correctly, he will fly in the wall, but next time, S-RHOH him, and you will get
another multiplier! This mean you can get twice the number of multiplier you
usually can get (I myself got a multiplier of fifteen, I think the maximum is
sixteen). If you get more then nine-thousand points, you don't have to kill any
other enemies. Anyway, when you got the key, put it in the roof and exit.
Collect the canisters and get in the other wagon. Now, go down, collect the
canisters and then go up and proceed. Mach Speed to get out of the way of the
cromartys and again, go up. Break the safe to get the key, and now get as fast
as you can to the exit. Collect the canisters and enter the wagon. Get as fast
as possible to the exit and kill the Gelby holding the key and exit the wagon.
Get to the emergency break and when the Black Leaders comes out, use Slow
Dragon Kicks to get rid of them. Now get on the emergency break and wait for it
to stop the task, DO NOT PRESS SLOW OR MACH SPEED!, it doesn't help, it just
make it longer. You must finish before the counter drop under a hundred.

_Blade Master, Alastor_
When it begins, jump in the air and punch/kick and wait for him to appear in
front of you after his Stinger. S-RHOH him from the left side of him twice,
then run up to him and S-RHOH him twice again. He will fall in the lava and
reappear in the fountain to the left and he will be dizzied for a little time.
UT, Get to him, DT and S-RHOH him twice and he will fall out of the fountain.
UT, Get to him, DT and S-RHOH him four times. He will get out of reach. Now
it's up to you to follow him and S-RHOH him in the air to make him fall. If he
lets out Round Trips, get near him, and get him down with a S-RHOH or with a
Slow Round Trip if he's out of reach. If he makes stones with lighting under
them, simply jump over them when they get near or S-RHOH them until they are
destroyed. If he makes another Stinger, simply jump and he will miss you, and
get back to him to S-RHOH him.



************************************
**** XIII. The Magnificent Five ****
************************************
This stage is though for one reason: you must beat it in one shot, no save.
Raging Charles, Raging Davidson and Leo aren't though, but Raging Gran and
Raging Joe are different. Bruce needs a tricky technique, and somehow Joe can
get you to run a lot in his battle, thus losing precious time.

_Raging Charles_
Collect the canisters (except the two columns in the air) before the fight. As
soon as the fight begins, throw a Round Trip, UT and wait for it to knock
Charles on the ground. DT and Mach Speed punch him until the pink box breaks.
Collect the red canisters and those in the air, then run to the second platform
to the left. Wait until he throws his sort of Round Trips, dodge them (not in
slow) and wait for him to bring stones from the ceiling. Send a stone (two if
needed) to the column of canister to get it, don't try to get the other one.
After that, it'S more or less up to you, send him Round Trips or UVK him to get
him down, S-RHOH him seven times (or eight if  you have enough time) and
repeat. When he have only his red life bar, to take him out quickly, let him go
and UVK him. I'm not sure, but if you keep down the stick down after the UVK
and UT right after hitting him, you will fall at the same time then him and get
right next to him. Now do this, but right before touching the floor (or a bit
before if you lack pratise) DT and Slow, to make a pound attack. Do not UT or
anything, simply S-RHOH him normally. Both attack combined takes a good chunk
of life, about one and a fourth life bar. This is a good technique to get him
dead soon in a Speed Run. This technique is MY discovery. So BEWARE OF SKYA! I
can bite >: (

_Raging Davidson_
This one is simple. Before the task, collect the canisters on the left platform
and in the upper-left corner. Now jump on the middle platform to trigger the
fight. Mach Speed to collect the canisters there, over the platform, on the
right platform and in the upper-right corner. Now get to Davidson, which should
be somewhere around the middle of the room. UT and wait until he begins to
swing his axe. When he does, dodge high, begin to hit him in Mach Speed until
you know the pink box behind the desk his open and UT. If you don't stop
hitting him, you will probably provoque him into doing his big axe swing, which
is bad. Simply avoid the swings of his axe until he begins to rush, jump over
him and wait for him to hit the wall, get to him and S-RHOH him eight times.
Wait for him to swing his axe, dodge high, S-RHOH him four times and UT. Wait
until he swing dodge, S-RHOH four times and UT. Now when he swings, dodge high
but this time S-RHOH him twice. When he rush, avoid him and wait for when he
hit a wall and repeat the technique. If you break his axe, you must be REAL
QUICK! DT, hold Slow and Mach Speed, get to him and ASAP, S-RHOH him eight
times before he begins to launch missiles. If he lets out fire missiles, deal
with them as usual.

_Raging Gran_
Get the canisters (including those in the pool) until you're on the last
platform before the sort of upper-left corner, it will trigger the fight. Mach
Speed to collect the canisters left on the platform and in the "corner" and
break the hamburger box. Before he jumps for the second time, go down next him.
When he's gonna land, S-RHOH him five times. Now UT and walk away a bit to
avoid the small whirlpool he does. After the whirlpool, he'll turn around to
make the bite attack, DT and Slow, to get five S-RHOHs before he completely
turns. Now he'll do the small whirlpool again, repeat the tactic. When he has
only the red life bar left, go away. He'll try to get into the pool to get back
life. S-RHOH him once when he begins to breath to stop him. He'll try to bite
you, get him around (not in the pool) until he gets tired. Now take this chance
to take out shoking pinks to break both pink boxes. Be sure to break the TWO
boxes. Collect ALL the coins, then kill him as fast as possible. The bombs that
he makes are useful to kill him quickly.

_Raging Joe_
Collect the canisters on the RIGHT side platforms. Then come back and collect
the canisters on the platform over where you begun. Now head to the right, and
as soon as the challenge begins, Mach Speed him to get the coins in the back,
avoid his Red Hot Kick and follow him to wherever he goes. Mach Speed hit him
again to get the rest of the coins. Now get the canisters as you follow him
until you get your fourth VFX gauge. Now all you have to do is to follow him,
S-RHOH him five times, spin kick, UT and follow him, like you did in stage four
and make sure he never has the time to make his "Henshin" moves. Repeat until
he's dead.

<Break Time>
When you finally got there by a lot of attempts, you should be proud :) . Try
not to fail at Leo, since he is way easier then the rest, and to get there it's
hard :P . Buy a set of Round Trips.
<Break Time>

_Fire Leo_
This one isn't hard at all, whatever anyone said to you. When it begins, UT and
wait for the rocks to come down. DT and Mach Speed Punch the rocks, when you
get your heat aura, run to Leo in Mach Speed (since there is no point in
walking normally) and punch him once, get out of the way (you should have UT
now by lack of VFX) and dodge the fireball and Leo until you get your VFX back.
Without DT, get in front of Leo and dodge his attack. DT and S-RHOH him three
times. Begin to dodge his attack and UT while you dodged it to get some VFX
back. DT again, S-RHOH three times to get his shield down and two more times to
get his attention. When he begins to spin, get a character's distance from him,
get full VFX. When he gets to you, DT, and when you know where he's gonna hit,
Slow the time to begin to dodge and immediately UT. Repeat until he's dizzied.
UT and wait until you get enough VFX. Now DT, face in the opposite direction of
him and throw a Round Trip, turn around and S-RHOH him until he jumps backward
away from you. Don't pursue him, let him go, you need the VFX and you don't
have to waste it for the little (or maybe no) damage you'll do. Now repeat the
technique, without the Round Trip, until you kill him. Don't forget that he
will get crazy when he has one and a half bar of health left.



******************************
**** XIV. Alastor&Goldie ****
******************************
The first part of the stage is easy, but the second part is harder. You should
probably have no problems with this one, compared to the former stage.


***Part One***
**************

_Locked Door_
When it begins, run and jump on the platforms, and get to the top one as soon
as possible. Then, when you reached it, jump to the left, DT and make a pound
attack, DO NOT HOLD SLOW! Unzoom to see when you reach the switch, and right
when you do Slow, it should work if you've done exactly like I said. Now jump
on the Tie Fighters to get to the hamburger box between the two platforms. Now
break it and collect the red bottle, now it's up to you to melee the enemies to
get between six thousand and seven thousand points. Now be wuick and activate
the rest of the switches. After this, you can collect all the canisters you
want (don't forget there is a red one hidden in the background where you
begin). And before leaving, collect the red bottle in the pink box over the
third switch.

_Space Tanks_
Get in front of the tank and wait for the cromartys to come to you. Lure them
around until the tank shoots. Duck to avoid the shot, the cromartys should get
hit and get dizzied. Send two in the tank, S-RHOH the tank some time to get
points, and now send a third one in the tank. Now take out a shoking pink to
get the red bottle in the pink box, and run to the next space tank. Repeat the
same tactic that you used on the last.

_Twin Leos_
Get on the glass platform in the middle, and get the Metal Leo to appear. Dodge
his attack once, S-RHOH him three times, dodge again, S-RHOH him five times,
dodge and finish him. Now get on the borders on the left or on the right, and
jump on the hidden platform. Destroy all the boxes and collect the coins. Now
get as fast as possible to the pace where the second Metal Leo lies, and use
the same tactic. Now you are free to collect the canisters or to kill the last
Leo, which have a life.

<Break Time>
This one is too soon, it should have been placed later, for the rest of the
stage is long. Well, nobody's perfect. Nothing special to buy, for now.
<Break Time>


***Part Two***
**************

_Joker Platform_
As soon as it begins, wait five seconds and then Mach Speed one of the enemies
to get a life. Then wait five more seconds and Mach Speed the enemies again to
get the red bottle. Now melee them, I got a trick for this one. If you simply
kick/punch the enemies in rock-on mode, in Slow, without holding Zoom-in, you
can get two multiplier per enemies, three per Gelby and three per Cromartys. I
got around twenty-five multipliers, and if you get more then six thousand or
seven thousand points, you won't have to get the coins from the machine slot.
After the Cromartys are beaten, Mach Speed until you get to the Joker. Kill
him, get the key from the machine slot and run for the exit.

_Missile Room_
Get on the other side of the thing that launches missiles, get the Gelby to
appear and get behind him (by jumping over him or ducking if he jump) DT and
Destroy him with S-RHOHs. Now all the next Gelbys, get behind them, DT and Mach
Speed punch them, until they try to hit or jump over you. Get behind them and
Mach Speed punch them etc etc. The after-images will destroy the ships. If you
Mach Speed punch the Gelby and the ships do not get destroyed, you probably are
Mach Speeding the Gelby in the wrong area. If you can't get the Gelbys to come
out, you can simply punch/kick missiles and Slow-Zoom when they are gonna hit
the ships. When you finished you can collect whatever you want.

_Leo Platform_
This one's a piece of cake, simply apply the Metal Leos tactic until there is
none and Mach Speed to the end.

_Gas Tower First_
Dodge one of the Biancky's attack and melee them with a good number of
multiplier and let them die. Now jump on the platform to get two Bianckys to
appear to your sides, Dodge an attack and melee them, don't forget the Biancky
who probably fell. Now get to the last platform and S-RHOH the Rosettas to
death.

_Gas Tower Second_
Jump on one of the platforms where the gas come from, and immediately jump on
the highest platform. then drop through the platform when the two leaders comes
out. Now melee the Cromartys after dodging one's four attacks. melee the rest
until there is nothing left.

_Gas Tower Third_
Simply apply the Gelby technique, and don't forget to jump on the highest
platforms to make them come out.

_Gas Tower Fourth_
Make the Metal Leos come out and run to the RIGHT side. Now apply the Metal Leo
technique on both.

<Break Time>
You may want to buy some Round Trips, but you won't use them unless it's really
needed.
<Break Time>

_The Omnipotent, King Blue_
As soon as the fight begins, UT and wait a bit. When you know he's coming into
the foreground, DT and jump. At about half of your jump begin to S-RHOH, and KB
should be caught in them. S-RHOH him sixteen times then jump away from him. He
should call the black tower. Mach Speed punch the tower, and when the missiles
comes out in the background, pay attention to them. If they comes out from
right to left, dodge high the first missile and Mach Speed punch the tower
again. If it comes out from left to right, continue to Mach Speed the tower
until it's destroyed and dodge the missiles when they come at your level. Then
when he calls the lightnings stay calm and do not move! The lightnings should
surround you without hurting you. Then he should call the Die Fighters. Jump to
get your head to his chest level and S-RHOH him (your punches should get to his
knee), you should hit at least two Dies. If you auto dodge one by accident, SF
to get a good fifty V points on the screen. Then repeat the tactic depending of
his attacks. Don't forget that even in Six Majin you need to DT and UT. And
even in Six Majin you can Ukemi, even if you should not get hit. An important
thing to note is that when he makes the lighnings appear one by one by spinning
his staff, usually when he calls the black tower, you better go and hit in Mach
Speed the tower because those are *really hard* to avoid.

_Captain Blue_
As soon as it begins, jump in his direction to make a Slow Shockwave attack.
Use these to get him cornered. Then you must repeat a simple process. S-RHOH
him five times, begin to jump and UT, when you are about to land you must be
quick, DT Slow and Zoom, this should make the Shockwave attack really close to
the ground and make him fall off his feets. S-RHOH him five times and repeat
until he's dead. If he escapes, send a Round Trip (Slow when it's about to hit
him) or use pounds to get him cornered. Be careful about the time and
*particularly* about the defense but the points aren't a problem.



*************************
**** XV. Conclusion ****
*************************

Now you should be pretty happy now, I personally danced around during half an
hour. DO NOT FORGET TO SAVE! This may seem stupid but if you don't save you
need to do it again from the last save. Now you say, what should I do with
Super Al? Well I have personnally three things I found out to be really fun.
First is to get to stage three, part two and when it begins, watch Al fall
during five minutes, this is INCREDIBLY fun! Litterally. The second is to make
the highest combo in stage seven part one. The last one is to simply get in DT,
because of the fact you usually can't stay in DT more then fifty seconds. You
can also do a Speed Run, you can do ANYTHING you want with him. And you can
show him to everyone you know just to make them know you're the best (after me
of course :P). Now that you have Super Al, you can also think of getting the
other Super characters (Blue is the best choice after Al).

If you succeeded finishing the RV with Alastor, I strongly suggest you take a
picture of your results and send it to the Hall of Fame made by *zemickey*.

**********************
**** XVII. F.A.Q. ****
**********************

Q: Does Alastor possess more strenght than the other characters such as Joe?
A: As far as I and other veterans of the game are aware of, no noticable
difference between the strenght of Alastor and the strenght of Joe has been
seen. Even if there was a slight difference, nobody yet found and proved it.

Ask any question you might still have after reading this guide at my e-mail
adress and I will answer it as well as I can here.
