It's about time Custom Robo received its very own complete FAQ/Walkthrough!

Greetings.  It's me, SpikeDragon!  Thank you for spending less than a second 
clicking on this FAQ.  As thanks, I will allow you to continue reading.

This guide is a complete FAQ/Walkthrough.  That's right.  It will cover most 
everything in Custom Robo.

This FAQ includes a map of the town, incase you needed help navigating 
around.

This FAQ contains detailed walkthoughs on Part 1, A New Journey, and Part 2, 
Grand Battle.  Whichever one you need help with, you can check that section 
out.

This FAQ will include the parts list.  In other words, it will have all the 
parts you are able to obtain in this game.  The ways to unlock the parts are 
NOT included in the parts section of this FAQ.  If you are trying to figure 
out how to unlock a certain part, they are included in the walkthrough 
sections, in the exact point of when they will be unlocked.

This FAQ will contain the Holosseums, with descriptions of them included.  
Just like the parts, the ways of unlocking the stages are NOT included in 
the Holosseum section of this FAQ.  They are located in the Walkthrough 
sections in the exact point of which they are obtained.

This FAQ includes the tips the game gives you itself, along with a few of my 
own.  The game covers a lot of the more important advice, so I'd recommend 
checking those out.

Also, if you are looking for a spoiler-free walkthrough, you've wandered into 
the wrong FAQ.  This FAQ contains many spoilers.  If you do not wish to have 
this game spoiled for you, then I'd suggest you attempt playing the game on 
your own, or waiting for a spoiler-free walkthrough to be made, which could 
take awhile.

Please note that the sub-sections have a smaller title.  This way, you don't 
get confused on whether it's a new section or not.

If you need any other assistance in areas that may not be covered in this 
Walkthrough, or not covered enough, please feel free to contact me.  My 
contact information is in section 12 of this FAQ.

Well, I believe I've covered everything.  Please continue.  I hope you will 
enjoy!

Basically, there are 2 sets of controls, due to the fact that you travel 
in the real world, then battle in the Holosseum.  Memorize these as best 
as you can.  You don't want to mess up in the middle of the game.

REAL WORLD CONTROLS
-------------------
Control Stick - Move
A - Talk, Check Locations/Objects
Start - Pause the game

HOLOSSEUM CONTROLS
------------------
Control Stick - Move
A - Jump
A+A - Air-Dash, Continuous Jump
B - Fire Gun
L - Fire Pod
R - Fire Bomb
X - Dash
Y - Switch Targets (If against more than one robo)
CUp - First-Person Mode
CDown - Third-Person Mode

That's about it.  You might want to spend a little time practicing in the 
multiplayer modes before beginning A New Journey.  It takes a bit of time 
to get used to this game.

Ah, here we are.  The first part of the one-player mode; A New Journey!  
Nervous?  Don't be.  This is fairly easy at the start, so if you haven't 
practiced, you should be able to get the hang of this quickly.  Have fun!

This section will cover the following sub-sections.

5A. PROLOGUE                                                                //
=============================================================================

The screen stays blank for awhile.  After a brief silence, the telephone 
rings.  You, the hero, answer it.  It's your father.  You engage in a short 
conversation.  He asks you to come outside for a quick moment.  After putting 
the phone down, you, confused, go outside to greet your father.

He remembers your birthday, and has a present for you.  After holding out 
your hand, he gives you a strange watch.  He tells you that it is a very 
special watch, which nobody else has, then says that it is your's.  Excited, 
you decide to put it on.  Your dad then asks you to promise to never take it 
off, then to promise that you'll always think of him when you wear it, and 
to keep it safe.

Your father's cell phone will ring.  After answering, your dad will tell you 
he has to go to a far-away place.  He reminds you of the promises you've 
kept, then gets into a car, and drives off.  You are now left alone, 
wondering where you beloved father has gone, and why you will never be able 
to see him again...

==============================================================================
5B. DAY 1: EMPLOYMENT                                                       //
=============================================================================

You are woken up by the landlady, Lucy.  She tells you about he interview 
you must attend at the Steel Hearts.  You get dressed up, and then are ready 
to go.

Walk out of the apartment.  Turn left, and you'll begin to talk with Lucy 
once again.  She'll talk with you about your father, and how he wanted you 
to become a commander.  That's probably why you're going to Steel Hearts.  
Go down to leave your complex.  When the map appears, begin heading up.  On 
your left, you'll see the Steel Hearts.

Once inside, talk to the bald man sitting behind the counter.  Answer the 
questions Ernest, the bald guy mentioned before, asks you during the 
interview.  The blond man sitting on the couch will come over after hearing 
your interview.  Ernest will answer his phone, and talk with the other person 
about a burglary at the lab.  After Harry is assigned with the case, you 
decide to tag along.

You and Harry will both leave the Steel Hearts building.  Harry will lead 
you upward a bit more until you reach the Research Lab.

When you enter, you'll see police officers and burglars facing each other.  
Their fists are clenched, and they have blue and black auras around them.  A 
blonde woman will appear in front of you.  The woman goes by the name of 
Linda.  She tells you that the burglars are attempting to steal their 
newest robo, Ray 01.  After Harry flirts with her a bit, he runs over to one 
of the burglars, and has the same blue and black aura surround him.  I know 
it's kind of confusing, but you'll find out what they're doing in a bit.

You ask Linda about the it, and she'll tell you that they're battling in a 
place known as the Holosseum.  The Holosseum is a sort of virtual 
battlefield, where people battle against each other with custom made robots.  
After explaining what's happening, Linda asks you to help Harry, who's still 
battling against the burglar.

You will have control over your hero again.  Walk over to Harry, and try to 
talk to him.  You will cause him to be distracted, and lose against the 
burglar.  The burglar will seem amused.

After talking with Harry a bit, walk over to the cube and press the A 
button to get an eye-scan of the cube.  This cube will become your's.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Ray 01

Yay, your first robo!  Ray 01 is a fairly balanced robo.  He's a Shining 
Fighter model, which is the most balanced type of robo you can get.  Don't 
worry if you dislike his look; more robos will come in the future.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Basic

The most basic gun you can get.  It shoots 3 bullets at a time, which sounds 
good, but trust me.  There are a lot of guns that are better.  Meh, it's 
your first gun, so I guess you can be happy about that.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Standard

Whoah, what a big change from the name "Basic."  This is your average bomb.  
Nothing really special about it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Standard

Yet another standard weapon.  It's the most basic pod.  Use it until you find 
something better.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Standard

You getting bored of the standard weapons yet?  This is, yet again, another 
average weapon.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Approach the burglar that defeated Harry.  He'll ask you if you really want 
to fight him.  Eh, what do you think?  En garde!

=========================
Burglar                 |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Basic              |
Bomb: Standard          |
Pod: Standard           |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

It's your first battle.  Splendor is a Shining Fighter Model, just like you.  
He just has a better defense stat than you, and a lower speed stat than you 
as well. 

The burglar is using the same weapons as you are.  There are several walls 
you can use as cover.  Dodge your opponents shots as much as possible.  
Fire your gun at different angles, as to confuse him.  Don't continuously 
shoot with you gun.  A good idea is to include you bomb and pods in the 
gameplay as well.  When your opponent's HP reach 0, you've won your very 
first match!

Your opponent will fall down after being defeated.  How'd Harry lose to 
such an easy robo, we'll never know.  Just when you feel you deserve a 
break, one of the police officers is defeated by one of the burglars.  What 
else should you do other than keep the burglar from stealing Ray 01?

Before you begin the match, Harry will give you some tips about bombs and 
pods.  Bear that in mind, and face your next opponent!

=========================
Burglar                 |
========================|
Body: Metal Ape         |
Gun: Basic              |
Bomb: Standard          |
Pod: Standard           |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

Your next opponent uses the Metal Ape.  The Metal Ape is a Metal Grappler 
model.  Be careful!  The Metal Ape has excellent offense and defense stats!  
However, his speed is extremely low, and due to his heavy weight, it's hard 
for him to dodge your attacks.  Keep your distance as much as possible, then 
fire when his guard is down.  Eventually, you'll be able to pull off a win.

After defeating this burglar, the game will save for you.  However, that 
doesn't mean you're done.  Another police officer will be defeated.  You 
must take the next burglar!

Before starting, Harry will give you some more tips, this time about jumping 
and charging.  Get ready.


=========================
Burglar                 |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Basic              |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Standard           |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

This opponent is almost identical to the first burglar.  The only difference 
is the Standard F bomb, which throws you sideways for the same amount of 
damage as the Standard bomb.  Nothing special about it.  Defeat this opponent 
like you usually do, and move on.

After defeating the burglar, another police officer will go down.  Before 
facing the next burglar, go to the parts generator, which is a glowing post 
towards the top of the lab.  Press A in front of it to activate it, and it'll 
give you a part obtained from the burglar you just defeated!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Twin Flank F

Finally, a part that has absolutely nothing to do with Basic or Standard 
mumbo jumbo!  The Twin Flank Pod F fires two pods on both your sides.  Just 
like the Standard F I told you about, it throws your opponent sideways.  
It's a pretty useful pod, better than the Standard, in my opinion.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, this is the last burglar standing.  Get ready to take him down!

Before battling, Harry will now give you tips about speeding up robo 
transformation.  Be prepared!

=========================
Burglar                 |
========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |
Gun: 3-Way              |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Feint F            |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

You may notice this burglar is the big guns in the group.  He now only has 
one Standard part, compared to all the other burglars.  There are 2 new parts 
this burglar is using.  The first is the 3-Way gun.  This new gun fires 3 
bullets in 3 differnet directions.  The Feint F pod explodes right next to 
you when deployed.  Be sure to have a massive need to dodge!  Be sure 
to keep your distance, and hide a lot.  If you're left open, he'll use his 
new gun and pod, which deal massive damage, and are hard to dodge.  Attack 
him with a good shot from your gun or bomb, and you should take him down 
fairly easily.

After defeating this burglar, go to the parts generator again.  There's 
another part waiting for you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: 3-Way

Ah, it seems as though you've obtained a valuable prize from your worthy 
opponent!  The 3-way gun, like stated before, fires 9 bullets in 3 different 
directions.  It has more power than the Basic Gun, and is more difficult to 
dodge from a distance.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

After you've defeated the final burglar, you're done battling for the day.  
The lab workers and scientists will come out to help clean up the place.  
Mira, Harry's brother, comes over to you.  She works for the Police Squad, 
and will come to talk with you and Harry for a brief moment.  She and another 
Police Squad member will leave after the conversation, then Linda will come 
over, asking you to test out the new robo for her.  You agree.

During the conversation, they will ask you what your name is.  That is when 
you will name your character.  You can name him whatever you want to.  I 
chose the name Yoshi, due to my obsession with the Nintendo character, Yoshi, 
but it's up to you.

Linda will leave after the chat, and Harry will tell you to talk to the Lab 
Technicians cleaning up.  He says that they all have some valuable 
information that you can learn about.

From left to right, you'll learn the following; The Lab, Getting Experience/
Part Generators, Definition of Commander, Eye-scan Registration, Parts of a 
Robo, Diving, Robo Forms/Holosseums, and Parts Generators/Glossary/Gun 
Ranges.

After speaking with the lab techs, talk to Harry again.  Together, you'll 
both walk out of the lab, and head back down to the Steel Hearts 
Headquarters.  Because Ernest is so impressed with your performance at the 
lab, he decides to hire you.  He'll then tell you about the low salary, and 
you'll be quite disappointed.  You should probably leave now, because 
there's not much else to do.  Choose to go home when you are given the 
options.  You deserve the rest!

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5C. DAY 2: TRAINING                                                         //
=============================================================================

Lucy will wake you up once again.  Get dressed, and go outside.  After 
talking with her, head out to the Steel Hearts Headquarters.

Your boss, Ernest, will tell you to head out to the Training Gym for...well, 
training.

Walk out of the headquarters.  You'll head down, and right to the Training 
Gym.

Upon entering the Training Gym, you'll speak to Harry.  He suggests you two 
battle it out one on one.

=========================
Harry                   |
========================|
Body: Glory             |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Crescent P        |
Pod: Speed P            |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |
=========================

Harry has some new parts you haven't seen before.  First off, the Gatling 
gun.  The rounds aren't as strong as the 3-way, but the Gatling is a rapid 
fire type of gun, shooting 8 rounds at you at a great speed.

The Crescent P flys in a crescent, then knocks the opposing robo down.  It's 
a useful bomb when it comes to uncovering hiding foes.

The Speed P is an extremely fast pod.  It's accuracy isn't very good, so 
it should be shot relatively close to the opponent to be of any use.

Glory is another Shining Fighter model.  Its Speed stat is greather than that 
of Ray 01, but it has a weaker Defense.

Use the walls as cover.  Fire your shots at perfect timing to take your 
opponent down quickly.  Don't stand out in the open, because the Gatling Gun 
will finish you for sure.  Put all your practice with burglars to the test.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Diamond Fences

Ah, the stage you fought in against Harry.  This stage is more interesting 
than the Basic Arena and Practice Stages.  If playing with your friends, 
I think this would be the one to use for now.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will automatically save for you.

After your battle with Harry, go to the nearest Parts Generator for a new 
part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Standard S

The Standard S is basically a Standard that temporarily stuns your opponent.  
This time could be used to take cover while your opponent is down, making 
this bomb much more useful than the Standard.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enter the Holosseum Deck.  Here, you see a series of strange machines.  These 
can actually be battled like a person!  Talk to the first machine when you're 
ready.

Before the match begins, the computer will give you tips about being knocked 
down.

=========================
Computer                |
========================|
Body: Buggy             |
Gun: Basic              |
Bomb: Standard          |
Pod: Dolphin            |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |
=========================

The Dolphin pod is the fastest pod you've seen so far.  Be sure not to be hit 
by one of them; it could be ugly.  The Short Thrust legs have decreased this 
computer's air-dash ability.  Use this to your advantage.

The computer's robo, Buggy, is a Trick Flyer model.  Its Attack and Defense 
stats are pretty good, but its Speed stat is terrible.

Try standing from a distance and shooting Buggy with your gun.  Due to its 
Speed, it won't be able to dodge too many of your bullets.  Use your pods 
to keep it from leaving your range.  Also, be sure to avoid the Dolphin pods 
while doing this.  If you don't, it could get ugly.

After you've defeated the computer, walk over to the Parts Generator for yet 
another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Speed S

The Speed Pod S moves very quickly on the ground.  Though it may sound good, 
it isn't very accurate in finding your opponent.  If using the Speed S, try 
releasing them in different areas, as to get a better chance at hitting your 
opponent.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Talk to the next computer to battle.  This computer will give you tips on 
Trick Flyers.

=========================
Computer                |
========================|
Body: Buggy             |
Gun: 3-Way              |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Standard           |
Legs: Wide Jump         |
------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

Wow, this Buggy really wants to fight with you, doesn't he?  His new legs, 
Wide Jump, allow him to jump greater distances.  This could be a problem, as 
you remember the Buggy before didn't have this advantage.  Well, his weakness 
is gone...oh dear.

Try to stay close when the Buggy is firing.  As the game states, the 3-Way 
gun is more accurate at a distance, due to the fact that there are 3 bullets 
homing in on you.  If you stay close, there are only 3.  Dodge those, then 
hit him with a powerful gunshot or bomb.  Be sure to use the walls a lot when 
at a distance.  The Buggy's 3-Way could get you easily.  Jump from your 
hiding place as soon as he's left open, so you can get him easily.  Fire 
your pods and bombs to knock him off guard as well.  You'll probably win 
after awhile.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: High-Rise Plaza

Woo, the High-Rise Plaza.  This stage is basically a stage with a bunch of 
walls and triangular platforms.  The walls are very useful for dodging 
attacks from guns, so be sure to use those a lot.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After this battle, go to the Parts Generator again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Criminal

Your first new robo!  The Criminal is a Trick Flyer model.  In other words, 
it is a robo capable to doing 3 continuous dashes in the air.  They're 
fairly balanced, so you can use them pretty accurately.  The Criminal is 
balanced like the name states, so whether you use it or Ray 01 doesn't matter 
too much.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you've gotten the part you needed, head over to fight the third 
computer.  This time, this computer will talk about why not to stop moving 
during the middle of a battle.

=========================
Computer                |
========================|
Body: Peregrine         |
Gun: 3-Way              |
Bomb: Standard S        |
Pod: Dolphin            |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |
=========================

Another new robo.  The Peregrine is a Little Raider model.  It's extremely 
fast compared to both your robos, making it very difficult to hit.  However, 
being hit by even one bullet will cause it to fall.  It will be hard to 
avoid, due to the fact that it is very fast, but you should be able to get 
it eventually.  I recommend using the 3-Way gun from a distance, and taking 
cover when possible.  You'll win eventually.

After the battle, go to the Parts Generator yet again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Gemini P

The Gemini P has 2 different functions, based on whether your robo is on the 
ground or in the air.  When on the ground, the bombs are fired left and 
right.  In the air, it is fired from the front and the back.  It's a pretty 
decent bomb.  You pick which you want to use now.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You're finally ready for the last computer.  Go over and talk to it.  It 
will tell you about Slide Shots.  Slide Shots are when you fire your gun 
while you're running.  You'll slide, and go under cover if you've done it 
correctly.  Get ready!

=========================
Computer                |
========================|
Body: Peregrine         |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Standard          |
Pod: Cockroach H        |
Legs: Ground            |
------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

The Cockroach H is a pod that moves slowly until it gets close to your 
opponent.  It will then speed up in an attempt to hit you.  Keep your 
distance from these guys, and you should do pretty well.

The Ground legs allow sharper turns, which works extremely well with the 
Peregrine robo.  You'd better watch out from this guy.

On top of it all, this Peregrine has the Gatling Gun.  Try your best to 
avoid the Cockroach pod, while at the same time, avoid being hit by the 
Gatling.  Then, use the computer's advice, and use frequent slide shots in 
order to avoid being hit while firing.

The game will now automatically save for you.

After the Peregrine is defeated, walk over to the Parts Generator one more 
time to receive a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Cockroach H

Isn't this the pod the Peregrine used?  Well, you know what it does.  It 
moves slowly, then attacks your opponent at a great speed when close.  Not 
much else to tell you there.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ernest will call you, asking to get Harry to call him.  After the call, go 
to the reception counter, and you'll find Harry flirting with another girl.  
Harry will call Ernest, and after being beaten with words, he is told that 
there is more work at Hub Park.  You both must go there.

On the map, Harry will lead you to the Hub Park.  It's the circular area 
in the middle of the map.

When there, you'll see two guys battling.  A girl named Mary will tell you 
that they're fighting because they're fighting over her.  She'll leave, and 
Harry will ask you to pick one of the guys to fight.  Just pick whichever one 
you want, then get ready to battle.

=========================
Anthony                 |
========================|
Body: Criminal          |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Crescent P        |
Pod: Feint G            |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Flower Garden           |
=========================OR
Thomas                  |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Straight G        |
Pod: Speed D            |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Flower Garden           |
=========================

If you selected Anthony, then you'd better look out for the Crescent P, and 
the Gatling combination.  Also, the Long Thrust legs increase the Criminal's 
ability to air-dash, so be ready.  Just stay behind cover to dodge the 
Gatling gun, then fire when he's left vulnerable.

If you selected Thomas, he uses the Straight G bomb.  This bomb blows you out 
from behind cover, leaving you ready for another attack, so be careful.

Just get him when he's at a distance.  He continuously gets close to you, so 
you're going to have to keep that up for awhile.

Honestly, I suggest you go up against Anthony.  Thomas is more difficult with 
his weaponry.  On top of that, they both give you the same parts.  It's just 
easier.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Flower Garden

The Flower Garden is a stage with a lot of grass.  It's a nice change 
compared to the robotic-looking stages you've seen so far.  There's an arch 
in the middle of the holosseum.  You can use that for cover from a gun or 
bomb.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After that battle, you and Harry will be talking to each other.  The boys 
will attempt to tackle you, but a girl will alert you before they can.

The girl is Marcia, a girl who also works at Steel Hearts.  She will ask you 
what license you have.  When you don't know, she'll tell you that you could 
be arrested with you're unlicensed.  You wouldn't want that to happen, would 
you?  After the conversation, go to a Parts Generator for 2 new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Reflection

The Reflection Pod is capable of firing 3 pods that go Pinball on you.  
They'll bounce around the place until they explode on their own.  They're 
pretty useful in smaller arenas.  Use it to your advantage then.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Long Thrust

The Long Thrust was used by Anthony.  The Long Thrust, like stated before, 
increases your air-dash ability.  It's good for all robos except the ones who 
jump in the air, rather than dash.  Don't use it then.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you get your parts, head over to the Steel Hearts Headquarters one more 
time.

Marcia will tell Ernest about your license problem, and it is decided that 
you will head over to be licensed tomorrow.  That's probably a good thing, 
because you've already had a rough day.  Anyways, you talk about what 
licenses you have.  It seems as if Marcia has a higher class than both you 
and Harry, but it doesn't matter too much.  You are excused for the rest of 
the day.  You'll need the rest, anyways.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5D. DAY 3: GETTING LICENSED                                                 //
=============================================================================

Once again, you have to be woken up by Lucy.  She tells you go take your 
test.  Get dressed, and head outside.

When you leave the complex, head over to the dome to your right.  When you're 
inside, you'll find Harry flirting again.  He'll tell you to take the test, 
and will give you an exam card.

Make sure you're ready.  When you are, head over to the open computer, which 
is located at the far right of the room.  Press A in front of it to begin

Body: Buggy             |
Gun: 3-Way              |
Bomb: Gemini B          |
Pod: Cockroach G        |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Crevice Court           |
=========================

You've covered all of these parts already.  Though Gemini B and Cockroach G 
don't have the same name as the other 2 parts, they're basically the same 
things, just with slightly different stats.

This Buggy should be easier for you, due to the fact it has the Quick Jump.  
That definitely doesn't help a robo who is a Trick Flyer model.  Trick Flyers 
have a good air distance, so this just makes your battle a whole lot easier.

Avoid the shots from the 3-Way.  As you already know, the 3-Way is more 
accurate from a distance.  So, the best thing you can do is fire from close 
range without getting hit.  Stay away from him, and fire your gun at every 
open moment to get his HP down quickly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Crevice Court

The Crevice Court is kind of odd.  It's a very irregular holosseum that has 
a bunch of walls, and irregular obstacles.  It's pretty good for robos with 
long range weapons, or swift pods.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW LICENSE

Name: Class-D License

Well, it's your first license.  You're now officially a Bounty Hunter!  
Congratulations!  Well, it's not too impressive, but at least you won't get 
arrested.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you have obtained your Class-D License, you can head over to the Parts 
Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Feather

The Feather Legs will decrease the speed at which your robo falls after a 
jump.  It also decreases your chances of being hit upon landing, and will 
increase your turning accuracy.  It's a pretty useful leg when it comes to 
robos with continuous jumps.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're all set, go over and talk with Harry.  After your chat, head over 
to the Steel Hearts.  After you tell Ernest about your successful test, he'll 
tell Harry to walk you home.

When you go into the house, Harry will talk to himself about calling Trish, 
the receptionist he was flirting with before you got to the Department of 
Licensing.  He'll run, but notice that he drops the slip of paper with 
Trish's phone number.

You may think that it's sad, but you'll later find out that losing the phone 
number does a lot more harm than that...

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5E. DAY 4: THE PROBLEM NEXT DOOR                                            //
=============================================================================

Lucy will wake you up again.  Get dressed as you usually do, then head 
outside.

Upon leaving your apartment, you'll hear a lot of screaming and yelling.  
It seems to be coming from your neighbor's apartment.  Ignore it for now.  
Leave your complex, and head out to the Steel Hearts.

Ernest will tell you to go back home.  The yelling had occurred before your 
neighbors, Walt and Carmen, entered a robo battle.  You and Harry are 
assigned the job.

Harry is pretty down right now.  It's probably because he lost the phone 
number from Trish.  On the way, he'll sigh a few times, but keep going back 
to your home.

Enter your complex, and go next door.  Inside, you and Harry see Walt and 
Carmen fighting each other.  You are told by Harry to battle Carmen, while 
he takes Walt.  Get ready to battle!

Before you do, Carmen throws in some information about the Metal Ape.

=========================
Carmen                  |
========================|
Body: Metal Ape         |
Gun: Blade              |
Bomb: Straight T        |
Pod: Feint F            |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Magma Hole              |
=========================

The only new part you see on Carmen's robo is the Blade.  The Blade gun one 
single bullet at a time.  It's very easy to dodge.  Even if you haven't been 
able to dodge it, the gun isn't very powerful, so you won't take too much 
damage.

Don't step on the octagon in the center.  It sinks into the ground, and a 
pit of lava will appear.  If you step in that, you'll get an automatic down, 
and 100+ HP taken out of you.  4 words; don't step in it.

Run around at shoot at every possible opportunity.  You'll need it, as Metal 
Ape can withstand quite a bit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Magma Hole

The Magma Hole is the stage you just battle in.  The Magma Hole is a series 
of walls and obstacles.  In the center is the octagon with lava beneath it.  
Quite a cool holosseum.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

It says you have received a new part.  However, you can't get it just yet.  
When you defeat Carmen, and Harry defeats Walt, they'll both make up, and 
go for both of you.

Before you battle, Harry tells you about a 2-On-2 Battle.  Be careful; your 
bombs and pods can hurt Harry.  Also, you now can use the Y button to 
switch between targets.

===================================================

It's your very first 2-On-2 Battle.  Don't worry; you'll get used to these 
fairly quickly.

Carmen has changed 2 of her parts.  One of them is new.  The Wave pod will 
shoot explosions in the direction is was launched.  It is a wave, so that's 
basically why it's the Wave pod.

Walt's robo is the Dour Head.  The Dour Head is a Funky Big Head model.  
These robos reasonably high Attack and Defense stats, as well as a great Sky 
stat.  They can move well in the air, but aren't very good on the ground.

The Left 5-Way fires a round straight, and 4 other shots to the left.  The 
Dual bomb can fire 2 bombs, which is pretty good.

The Diving pod will enter the stage out of the air.  There's nothing too 
impressive about that, but that's why they called it the Diving pod.

The High Jump legs allow the robo jump really high.  This is good for the 
Dour Head, due to the fact that its Sky ability was already great.  He's 
able to get you from behind walls, so be careful.

Keep shooting at them with your gun.  They're both off the ground most of 
the match, so using pods doesn't help too much.  You'll beat them eventually.

After you've won the battle, Marcia comes to check on how you guys are 
doing.  She notices you are doing fine.  She comes and takes the note from 
Carmen.  It's Trish's phone number.  Carmen probably though Walt was hitting 
on another girl.  Anyways, Harry is now delighted that Marcia found the phone 
number.

Marcia will go over to the kids, and try to cheer them up, as they're crying 
pretty hard.  Harry will tell you that Marcia has a special power, which 
allows her to half-dive into someone else's cube.  Her parents had died, and 
her brother, the only person who befriended her, left her alone.

The game will now automatically save for you.

You three decide to leave.  Head over to the Steel Hearts headquarters, and 
Ernest will tell you to head over to Bogey's Cafe.  Whenever you can, 
however, head over to the Parts Generator to get some new parts obtained 
awhile ago.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Vertical

The Vertical gun fires four different rounds.  Two head straight for your 
opponent, and the others stall for awhile, hitting shortly after the first 
2.  It's capable of hitting your opponent who are under cover, so you can use 
this to your advantage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Metal Ape

The Metal Ape is a Metal Grappler model.  You've seen it used several times 
already, and now it's your's.  Its Attack and Defense are quite good.  
Though its Speed on the ground is very bad, it can withstand many shots, 
and takes less damage, before it finally gets a down.  It's useful in 
many situations.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Spider

The Spider is sort of like the Cockroach.  It moves very slowly on the 
ground, but speeds up when your opponent is close.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head over to Bogey's Cafe, which is located at the lower left area of the 
map.  Apparently, there's a criminal there that goes by the name of Marv.  
When you get there, you find out the Dark Blue, another group, has already 
gotten Marv.  Bogey will tell you about Ernest's poetry.  Evil, the Dark 
Blue leader, will then tell your pals that you applied for Dark Blue, but 
didn't make the cut.  He'll continue to make fun of you, then leave 
abruptly.

Go back to the Steel Hearts.  Ernest will be upset with you that you didn't 
catch Marv.  However, when you tell him about the poetry Bogey told you 
about, then he'll allow you to leave, knowing that he was going to lose this 
conversation.  Smart move.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5F. DAY 5: DON AND BOGEY                                                    //
=============================================================================

Do you get woken up by Lucy again?  Not this time!  Instead, you are woken up 
by your cell phone.  When you answer it, Harry tells you that you should come 
to the Daimon Chinese Restaurant.  You'll get up, and get dressed.  After 
that, head outside.  You'll find Lucy suprised that you woke up by yourself.  
Pretty impressive, I guess.  Head out of the complex.

On the map, head up towards the lab.  Instead of entering the lab, take a 
right, and you'll eventually come to the restaurant.  Enter the restaurant 
to meet your friends.

If you think you're going to have a good time eating breakfast with your 
pals, then you've got another thing coming.  Inside the restaurant are the 
restaurant owner, and the Steel Hearts members.  Look on the ground, and 
you'll see a dead guy laying facedown on the floor, with his robo cube near 
him.  Ernest will tell you that a mental shock from his robo battle caused 
him to die.  

Mira and one of the other Police Squad members, Roy, will enter the scene.  
Harry and Roy will have a rough time, but will be stopped by Mira and 
Ernest.  Mira will tell you that the robo the man was facing didn't need a 
commander.  The cops will then ask Marcia to use here special power, a 
half-dive, on the deceased commander's robo cube.  This will be used in an 
attempt to track the commander's last thoughts before being killed.  When 
she agrees to do it, you can tell she's really stressed during the half-
dive.

Marcia will give information about the robo not being an actual robo.  
It was something else, and was also extremely powerful.  After the half-
dive is completed, Roy and Mira will take Marcia to the Police Squad 
Headquarters to find out more about this.  You, Harry, and Ernest will 
return to your own headquarters.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Marcia is kept at the Police Squad HQ for quite some time.  Harry will then 
start talking to you about Marcia.  She's capable of half-diving into a 
commander's cube.  Ernest will stop him before he can tell you more.  Ernest 
will get a phonecall from Bogey, the owner of Bogey's Cafe.  A guy is winning 
money off of battle bets.  You'll remember that a cop had told you that doing 
that was illegal.  You and Harry will leave, and head over to Bogey's Cafe.

Once again, Dark Blue is there before you.  When you enter, Evil will begin 
taunting you, and will then ask you to battle for this job.  You and Harry 
agree, and that battle begins.

Checkmate Foundry       |Checkmate Foundry        |
===================================================

A new stage.  Be careful about it.  There's a bunch of different things in 
this stage, so you'd better watch out.

Evil used the Juggler.  It's is Trick Flyer model.  Trick Flyers are fairly 
balanced robos.  The Juggler has better Speed than the Criminal, but it's 
weaker in Defense.  Overall, it's the worst of the Trick Flyers, so this 
guy should be pretty easy.

The Right Pulse Gun is a gun that shoots similar to that of the Gatling, but 
curves right in mid-air.  It's ineffective when your opponent is on your 
left.

The Left Flank H arcs left, taking the left side, while the Right Pulse 
takes the right.  Therefore, Juggler has a pretty balanced attack.  It gets 
complicated to use yourself, though.

Lackey has the Metal Ox, a Metal Grappler model.  It is similar to that of 
the Metal Ape, but is slightly faster.

His bomb, the Submarine D, is a very slow pod.  It just sits there for 
awhile, waiting to explode on your opponent.  When it finally explodes, the 
explosion lasts for awhile, having the possibility of your opponent 
accidentally landing on it.

Just keep your distance from Evil and the Lackey.  Their guns are pretty 
good at close range.  Fire at one the whole time at first.  Taking down 
one quickly is better than taking 2 the whole time.  Also, if Harry loses, 
they'll both gang up on you, and you don't have any handicap advantages.  
I'd suggest taking down the Lackey first, but it's your choice.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Checkmate Foundry

This stage is based on a factory.  It has a lot of walls, and conveyor 
belts.  It's a pretty neat stage.  Going against the belts doesn't really 
help.  Learn to use them for you, not against you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle, Bogey will tell you to go to the back room.  Before you do, 
head over to the Parts Generator for some new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Left Flank Bomb H

This bomb shoots to the left, as you know.  The victim is thrown sideways 
when hit.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Feint F

You've already seen quite a few of these around.  The Feint F explodes next 
to your opponent.  The victim is thrown sideways upon impact.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Harry will tell you to talk to everyone when you get down.  Everyone you talk 
to talks about a guy named Shiner beating everyone.  Go up to the waiter, and 
he'll enter you and Harry into the tournament.  Talk to him again when you're 
ready.

The first match is against Paulie, a Police Squad member.  Harry will tell 
you about the stealth capabilities of a Strike Vanisher before you begin the 
match.

=========================
Paulie                  |

Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Diamond Cell            |
=========================

There aren't any new parts here.  Javelin is capable of dodging your attacks 
very easily.  He's a Strike Vanisher model, who is capable of completing 
air dashes that also make him "vanish."  Use your bombs and pods to keep him 
from getting easy hits on your.  Blast him with a good shot from your gun 
when you have the perfect opportunity.  You'll beat the Javelin within a few 
tries.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Diamond Cell

The Diamond Cell has magma zones at all the corners of the Holosseum.  It's 
useful for robos who pack a lot of defense.  It's not good, however, for the 
Lightning Sky models.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

Go over to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Javelin

What a pleasant surprise!  You've gotten the robo Paulie just used!  The 
Javelin is a Strike Vanisher model.  It has a stealth function which allows 
the Javelin to disappear for a second, then re-appear in a nearby area.  This 
allows the Javelin to dodge many bullets and pods that could have potentially 
been a problem.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, talk to the waiter for your next match.

What do you know, it's Walt, your next door neighbor!  Well, this should get 
pretty interesting.

=========================
Walt                    |

Pod: Feint G            |
Legs: Standard          |
------------------------|
Ice and Snow            |
=========================

Ice and Snow is a sort of unique battleground.  You slip and slide around 
the place.  This is good for some nice slide shots.  The Right 5-Way is now 
being used, so get ready to dodge.

Because this stage is so slippery, you will miss your shots more frequently.  
Just try your best to stop and fire, or use a good slide shot.  You'll defeat 
Walt like you did last time!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Ice and Snow

It's the stage you just fought in.  The Ice and Snow holosseum is a very 
slipper stage.  It's good for slide shots, but not so good for normal shots.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before you fight again, go over to the Parts Generator for another part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Left 5-Way

The Left 5-Way fires multiple rounds to the left.  It goes the opposite way 
in the air.  Good luck getting used to this.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Talk to the waiter again, and get ready for the finals.  Your next opponent 
is your pal, Harry!  Only one can make it to the finals.  Good lucK!

=========================
Harry                   |
========================|
Body: Glory             |

Bomb: Standard S        |
Pod: Cockroach H        |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Checkmate Foundry       |
=========================

Everything has been seen before.  Harry hasn't picked very good parts.  The 
Short Thrust realy hurts him.  The Standard S isn't anything special, 
either.  Just beat him up as much as you want; consider him a punching bag.

Before you face the final opponent, you should go to the Parts Generator once 
more.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Caboose C

The Caboose C goes the opposite direction you are running.  If you go 
forward, it goes backward.  If you go left, it goes right.  Vice versa, etc 
etc.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Talk to the waiter again, and you'll face the final boss; Shiner.  No big 
surprise here.  Get ready!

======================[O]
Shiner                 []
======================[O]
Body: Breaker          []
Gun: Flame             []
Bomb: Straight G       []
Pod: Caboose X         []
Legs: Long Thrust      []
----------------------[O]
Crevice Court          []
======================[O]

I'm going to call this a Boss Battle, and give it a spiffy backing.  Breaker 
is a Lightning Sky model.  It has very good Attack and Sky stats.  However, 
its defense is awful, making it vulnerable to even a single bullet.  The 
Lightning Sky models are capable of changing direction in mid-air, however, 
so it's not as easy to hit it.  The Caboose X also does some good damage, so 
you shouldn't get hit by it.

Corner the Breaker with Pods and Bombs.  When he's in the corner, shoot him 
with a powerful gun or bomb.  He'll continuously turn into the corner, and 
get hit by the gun.  He comes to you in an attempt to hit you with his new 
gun, the Flame gun.  The Flame does a lot of damage, so you'd best avoid that 
as well.  After knocking him down 4-5 times, he should already be out.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Shiner will say that he's done with work.  You and Harry are confused at 
first, but Harry will notice the Z on his collar.  You are still confused, so 
Harry tells you about the Z Syndicate.  The Z Syndicate is an evil 
organization in search of a robo to complete their evil tasks.  What they 
are, we currently don't know.  When Harry asks him about the Z Syndicate, he 
will say that he doesn't know anything.  The lights will go off, and Shiner 
will be gone.  Marcia will walk into the gambling room.  The waiter will 
close the pit.  A blue haired guy will walk into Marcia.  She will 
turn around, and suddenly act strange.  She will leave the room for some 
odd reason.  Harry will then say that your work for the day is done, and 
you're allowed to go.

Before you go, check up on the Parts Generator to find Shiner's gun!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Flame

The Flame Gun shoots flames.  Eh, yeah.  It packs a punch when it comes to 
damage.  This gun works well with Little Raiders and Lightning Skies.  This 
information is credited to Hyper Omega.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's about it.  Have a good rest!

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5G. DAY 6: TOURNAMENT AT THE GYM                                            //
=============================================================================

It's the same boring beginning of the day again.  Lucy will come and wake you 
up.  You'll dress, and go outside.  Talk with Lucy, and head out of the 
complex.  Go to the Steel Hearts Headquarters.  There, you'll see Ernest, 
Marcia, and Harry.  Ernest will tell you that you've been entered in a 
tournament for the day.  Head out of the Steel Hearts Headquarters, and walk 
over to the Training Gym.

Harry will predict the results.  He feels he'll win first, Marcia will take 
second, and you'll take third.  After that, he'll tell you to talk with 
all the people in the gym.  They'll talk to you about graphs on the Customize 
Robo screen.  When you're ready, the receptionist will begin the tournament.  
Your first match in the tournament is against Will, one of the children that 
belong to Carmen and Walt.

=========================
Will                    |
========================|
Body: Seal Head         |
Gun: 3-Way              |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Seeker F           |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Little Locomotive       |
=========================

Will may be a kid, but he's no pushover.  His robo is the Seal Head, a Funky 
Big Head model.  These guys pack a good Defense and Sky stat.  They're slow 
on the ground, but they make up for that with some good air distance.  His 
pod is the Seeker F, which is sort of a heat-seeker, and follows you wherever 
you go.  Will is using the 3-Way, and with the Seal Head being used, the 
3-Way gun is only more dangerous.  Be sure to use the train and platforms as 
cover.  Will's Seal Head has great defense as well, so it will take a few 
shots to knock him down.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Little Locomotive

This stage is quite colorful, and good fun if you're playing with a little 
sibling.  There is a train that circles around the stage like it's a sort of 
toy room.  There are building blocks, a plastic tunnel, and everything a 
little kid would hold dear.  There are many things to take cover behind, and 
the stage is decently large.  Good for Lightning Skies and Little Raiders 
to defeat the competition.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is the owner of the Chinese Restaurant where a man was 
killed.  The owner's name is Dendai Don.

------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

Dendai Don looks very Asian, doesn't he?  The robo he uses is the Shrike, a 
Little Raider model.  It has slightly higher defense than the Peregrine, and 
about the same speed, so take this match seriously.  The gun Don uses is the 
Drill gun.  This gun will guarantee 100% hits when fired as long as the first 
bullet hits.  You've seen everything else before.

Run around the large bowl.  There are 2 platforms which you can get on to get 
a better shot at Shrike.  Use a good gun, such as a 3-Way or a Flame, to down 
the Shrike.  While he's down, hit him as much as you can before he's able to 
get up.  Don't attempt a charge or close-range attack.  He'll hit you with 
the Drill no problem.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Chinese Bowl

The name pretty much explains it all.  The entire holosseum is in the shape 
of a bowl.  There are two hovering platforms that circle around the edges of 
the holosseum.  There are also walls in the center of the holosseum.  This 
bowl is small, making it easier for robos with high Attack power to get a 
win.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

Your third round opponent is Mary, the girl Anthony and Thomas were arguing 
over in the Hub Park.  Though she may look sweet, prepare yourself for 
another good match.

=========================
Mary                    |
========================|
Body: Earth             |
Gun: Vertical           |
Bomb: Gemini P          |
Pod: Ground Freeze      |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Flower Garden           |
=========================

Mary's robo is the Earth, an Aerial Beauty model.  The Aerial Beauty models 
have an excellent advantage in the air.  The Aerial Beauty has a better 
defense than the other Aerial Beauties, but is slightly slower, making her 
more vulnerable to a quick attack.  The pod Mary uses is the Ground Freeze 
pod.  It sits on the ground, waiting for you to come close.  When it blows on 
you, you are temporarily frozen, unable to move.  Be careful; it's Earth's 
perfect opportunity to get you a down.  Just keep moving.  

Ah, the semifinals begin.  You, Harry, Marcia, and Evil remain.  In the 
first semifinal match, Harry is defeated by Marcia.  Now you and Evil battle 
it out.  Good luck!

=========================
Evil                    |
========================|
Body: Juggler           |
Gun: Right Pulse        |
Bomb: Burrow D          |
Pod: Dolphin G          |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |
=========================

You've seen all the parts Evil is using.  He's not too original.  Juggler is 
pretty easy.  He's the weakest of his models, after all.  Keep your distance 
to avoid the Right Pulse gun, then fire when he's open, and you'll take him 
down faster than all your other opponents so far.

After you defeat Evil, it's time for the final round of the tournament.  Your 
new opponent is Marcia.  Get ready!

=========================
Marcia                  |
========================|
Body: Milky Way         |
Gun: Homing Star        |
Bomb: Wave              |
Pod: Spider             |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
L Formation             |
=========================

Marcia is a lot tougher than your other opponents.  Finally, someone worthy 
of their place.  Marcia's robo is the Milky Way.  The Milky Way is an Aerial 
Beauty model.  Though it has a low Defense stat, it is very good in the air.  
Her gun is the Homing Star.  It shoots into the air, lock in on you, then 
drops several shots on you.  The Homing Star also does a lot of damage 
to your robo, so be sure to dodge as much as possible, while still 
attacking.  The Wave bomb is very powerful, and sends shockwaves after 
exploding.  The Spider pod waits until you're close.  The Booster Legs don't 
help, but they're impressive nonetheless.  Hiding is proven to be ineffective 
by Hyper Omega.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: L Formation

The L Formation gets its name due to the fact that there are several walls 
shaped like an L.  Pretty straight-forward.

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

The game will now automatically save for you.

You are congratulated by Marcia for winning the tournament.  Sophie will ask 
you how you feel.  You'll respond, and Harry will tell you to promote Steel 
Hearts.  When you do, it doesn't seem like anyone is too impressed.  You'll 
be allowed to leave, but first, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Twin Flank G

The Twin Flank G can blast you upward upon impact.  Be careful if you're 
hiding behind cover.  If you're hit by one of these, you're pretty much 
vulnerable to any attack.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: High Jump

The High Jump legs help you increase your jump height.  Thought it works with 
every robo, it's best effective with robos with continuous jumps, rather than 
air-dashes.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Earth

It's Mary's robo.  The Earth robo has a low defense, but its continuous jumps 
allow for great speed while airborne.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Gatling

About time you had the Gatling gun in your weaponry.  The Gatling gun fires 
8 quick shots, knocking your opponent at a tremendous speed.  When further 
away, the power increases.  However, the accuracy isn't as good, so be sure 
to use it when your opponent is stunned, or down.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Booster

The Booster legs increase the speed of an air-dash.  They allow for great 
air dashes with Lightning Skies.  Too bad you don't have any yet.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, you can go home with your pals.  Be sure to get a lot of 
rest; tomorrow's another big day.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5H. DAY 7: GUARD DUTY AT THE LAB                                            //
=============================================================================

Your cell phone will ring.  It's your boss, Ernest.  He asks you to head over 
to the Research Lab, and meet up with Harry and Marcia.  You're investigating 
because of several strange occurences that have been happening since Day 1, 
when thieves attempted to steal the beloved Ray 01 model.  You'll put your 
clothes on, and head outside.  Have your usual chat with Lucy, and head out 
of the complex.  When on the map, walk to the lab where you fought the 
burglars in Day 1.  This time, head into the research building.  Inside, 
you'll find that Evil was asked to keep guard as well.  Several strange 
figures have been spotted, and the security has never been able to nab them.  
It looks like a good for the commanders.  Linda and Marcia will chat, while 
you and Harry are talking with the Lab Techs.  Be sure to talk with Evil, 
Marcia, and Linda as well.  When you're done talking with everyone, talk with 
Harry again, and you'll all head into the Reception room.  Harry will suggest 
you guys investigate during the night, and everyone agrees.

The game will skip to nighttime.  Go to the Presentation room, and head over 
to the top left corner.  Look at something, and you'll hear glass break, and 
Harry's voice.  Head back to the Reception room.  Evil will tell you that he 
saw a strange figure.  Everyone will begin to search the room for a hidden 
bomb.  Look for awhile, then talk with Marcia about the bomb.  Harry will ask 
you to search the other rooms.  Leave the Reception room, and head back to 
the Presentation room.  There, you'll see a man facing the other direction.  
Talk to him, and you'll find that it's a Z Lackey, one of the members in the 
Z Syndicate.  This can't be good.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Glaive            |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Right Flank H     |
Pod: Throwing D         |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Glaive.  The Glaive is a Strike Vanisher model, 
with a greater defense than the Javelin.  The Throwing Pod D won't do Glaive 
much good.  It doesn't last too long.  The Stabilizer legs increase the speed 
of your robo, so Glaive will be effective in both the air and on the ground.  

Remember, it's not good to hide behind the walls against a Strike Vanisher.  
Keep dodging the Gating, and stay from a distance.  Use a long-range weapon, 
and you'll take down the Z Lackey eventually.

Once he's down, head over to a Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Throwing D

No!  The Throwing Pod D moves around for a short time, then explodes.  It's 
effective if it hits, but it's awful overall.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looks like you should check the rest of the rooms.  Head outside, and there 
will be another Z Lackey outside.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Criminal          |
Gun: Vertical           |
Bomb: Double Mine       |
Pod: Seeker F           |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Crevice Court           |
=========================

The Double Mine bomb fires 2 mines that will stick to either the ground, a 
wall, or an obstacle.  If you step on it, it will explode on you.  If you 
never touch it, it will explode on its own.  They're pretty easy to see, 
because they're shiny.

Watch out for the Vertical gun.  Just keep using good slide shots around the 
holosseum.  Don't let the computer use his strategy.  Keep moving, and you'll 
eventually defeat him.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Run outside.  Look into all the rooms.  You'll find Evil in a room to the 
right.  He says he'll keep an eye out for some z syndicate members there.  In 
two rooms to the left, you'll find Harry and Marcia fighting 2 other Z 
Syndicate members.  They should be able to hold their own.

Find a room with a Parts Generator in it to get a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Double Mine

You've just seen this bomb in action.  The Double Mine bomb fires two bombs 
that stick to a surface, and explode over a set period of time.  If you land 
on one, it explodes, dealing a good deal of damage.  They're pretty easy to 
spot, but they're good for creative strategies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, head back to the Reception room.  You'll find a third Z 
Syndicate member in there.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Glaive            |
Gun: Shotgun            |
Bomb: Straight T        |
Pod: Speed              |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Ice and Snow            |
=========================

Be careful.  This guy has a new weapon.  The Shotgun is a short-ranged 
extremely powerful gun that knocks you down with its single shot.  It's also 
pretty fast, so be sure to avoid it as much as possible.

Make sure you stay at a distance.  It's pretty easy to get hit by the Shotgun 
at close range.  Fire a long-range gun, and keep behind cover.  You'll defeat 
him within a few minutes.

After the battle, the Z Lackey flees, yelling something about somebody named 
Eliza.  Don't think much of it now.

Head out, and find a room with a Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Straight T

The Straight T goes straight, like the name says, and brings your opponent 
closer to you if it hits.  Good to hit an opponent with a powerful short-
ranged weapon.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head outside of the Lab building.  Outside, you'll find that Marcia has been 
beaten by one of the Z Syndicate members.  This is a female member.  She asks 
you if you want to fight and be beaten, or run away like a coward.  Take this 
lady on!

======================[O]
Eliza                  []
======================[O]

Pod: Dolphin           []
Legs: High Jump        []
----------------------[O]
Panic Cubes            []
======================[O]

This lady is extremely tough.  She has 2 illegal parts; Athena, her body, and 
Waxing Arc, her gun.  The Athena is an illegal Aerial Beauty model.  It has 
extremely good jumps, as well as speed.  It's a force to be reckoned with.  
The gun, Waxing Arc, fires four rounds that come right at you from an angle.  
These shots are powerful, so be sure to dodge them as much as possible.  The 
new bomb, the Right Wave, curves when coming towards you, so it's hard to 
figure out what it's doing.  Keep moving, and duck behind the moving walls 
whenever possible.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Panic Cubes

This new holosseum has blocks that come from the ground upward.  It's a sort 
of toxic-looking stage.  When the stage will change is unpredictable, so find 
a best-fit strategy, and stick with it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you defeat Eliza, Harry comes outside with a Z Lackey.  Marcia 
half-dives into the robo cube.  She'll tell you that their boss is currently 
deceased, and the Z Syndicate has split up into teams.  Apparently, there was 
a reason they were at the lab.  Everyone still wonders what they wanted, 
however.  Now that the day is done, Harry tells you you're allowed to go home 
now.  Good luck the next day!

=============================================================================

Wake up in the morning.  Get dressed, and head out to meet your friends.  
Steel Hearts will be asking Linda what she thought the Z Syndicate was 
after.

She'll tell you that they were looking around in the desks.  Before she could 
say more, she says she probably should tell this information to the Police 
Squad Headquarters.  Linda will thank you and the Steel Hearts for coming.  
There isn't any work today, so you can get a good rest.  Be ready the next 
day, though.

The game will now automatically save for you.

5J. DAY 9: FIRST ENCOUNTER                                                  //
=============================================================================

You be awoken by your cell phone again.  Ernest will tell you to head over 
to Bogey's Cafe.  There's a robo that's destroying it.  You'll be confused, 
as you remember that robos are supposed to be cubes in the real world.  
You'll get dressed, have your conversation with Lucy, and head out to Bogey's 
Cafe.

Marica thinks that it is an autonomous robo.  Go into the Gambling Pit, and 
you'll see that everything's a mess.  You'll see a robo shooting at 
everything in the room.  Marcia will tell you it's the robo from Daimon, and 
Harry will tell you to stop it before it destroys anything else.  Harry will 
give an excuse that it could destroy his and Marcia's holosseums.  When 
you're ready, press A in front of the robo.  Harry will give you tips about 
your gun, bomb, pod, and using coordination.  Good luck.

======================[O]
Rahu I                 []

Pod: Penumbra I /!\    []
Legs: Ultimate /!\     []
----------------------[O]
Nature Park            []
======================[O]

All illegal parts on this robo.  Rahu I is extremely powerful.  The Rahu I is 
an upgraded Lightning Sky model.  Its stats are all extremely good, so be 
sure to watch out.  His gun is the Rahu I as well.  It shoots green bullets, 
which explode strangely in the air.  The Grand Cross bomb is devastating.  
It fires four bombs out at once, which explode in all directions after 
awhile.  They're explosions are quite large, and very powerful, so it'd be 
best to avoid them.  The pods, the Penumbra I, are an upgraded Seeker pod.  
They look for you, except at a greater speed, then explode when near, dealing 
a lot of damage.  The legs, the Ultimate, increase the Rahu I's stats 
greatly, so that only contributes to the difficulty level of this strange 
creature.  Keep this up for as long as you can, and eventually, it 
will fall before you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Nature Park

This park is where you just fought Rahu I.  It's a stage with several 
life-like features, and a lot of walls and obstacles.  It's quite a scenic 
view, but a battlefield for robos.  Quite ironic, if I do say so myself.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

Rahu I will be left on the ground.  Harry will ask you about the holosseum 
you just battled in.  After that, 2 men will walk into the Gambling pit.  The 
latter will state that Shiner had fooled everyone by making everyone greedy, 
jealous, and unlikeable, and brought Rahu I to the cafe through that.  
They'll tell you they're from the Z Syndicate as well, and Harry will want 
to fight them.  Marcia will refuse.  Harry will take the gray-haired man, 
Oboro.  You are left with the blue-haired man.

----------------------[O]
L Formation            []
======================[O]

This man's robo is the Ruheil, which is an upgraded Lightning Sky model.  It 
has a better defense than the other Lightning Skies, and is better in the 
air.  The gun it uses is the Raptor, which is basically an upgraded Eagle 
gun.  This gun fires two rounds from the ground, and 2 in the air that 
momentarily pause, locking onto the target.

This guy will be really hard to avoid.  You'll have to do your best in order 
to defeat him.  Be sure to do a continuous jump or air-dash as much as 
possible in order to avoid the Raptor.  They're extremely accurate, so you'll 
have to be really precise in your timing in order to dodge it.  Dodge as 
many shots as possible, while still attacking him, and you'll eventually be 
able to pull off a good win.

After both of them are defeated, Rahu I will flee from the scene.  Without 
the robo, there is no reason for the Z Syndicate to be there.  They will 
saw a few words, then they  will flee from the Gambling pit.  Then, you guys 
start talking to Marcia.  Linda and Mira will appear in the pit.  They talk 
about some things they're supposed to keep secret, then leave as quickly as 
they came.  Harry will tell you there's no more work for the day, and you're 
free to go.  Be ready for the next day.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5K. DAY 10: TOURNAMENT AT POLICE SQUAD HEADQUARTERS                         //
=============================================================================

You wake up by yourself.  Get dressed, and head outside.  Lucy will say 
some stuff to you.  After that, head out of the complex.  Go to the Steel 
Hearts Headquarters, and Ernest will tell you you got an invitation to 
participate in the tournament at the Police Squad HQ.  Despite the fact that 
Harry didn't want to go, he is the one who leads you and Marcia to the HQ.  
When he heads out of the headquarters, he'll head around to where Bogey's 
Cafe is.  When you're in the headquarters, turn left, and keep walking until 
you find the Training Room.  Go inside, and chief will be making a speech.  

Marcia can't fight, so it's just you and Harry.  That's all you need, 
anyway.  The tournament is a 2-on-2 battle.  Talk to everyone in the room 
before you begin.  Sophie will begin the 2-on-2 matches.  Walk into the D 
block, as that's the only place left open.  Will and Wendy, the 2 kids next 
door, are up first.

===================================================

Fire your gun and pods a lot more than your bombs.  Harry could be hit by 
them, so avoid using bombs as much as you can.  Try to get Swift first, 
because Swift is weaker in defense.  Protect Harry as much as possible; in 
other words, attack the robo attacking Harry.  Use the train to avoid the 
3-Way shots.  Continue to attack them with your guns and pods, and you'll 
win.

After the match, you'll be given a little break time.  Use this time to get 
new parts from the Parts Generator

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Seal Head

Alas, you have received Will's robo.  The Seal Head lacks a great deal of 
Speed on the ground.  However, its Sky stat is great, so you'll be able to go 
great distances in the air with him.  The Defense stat is also good, making 
this robo hard to knock down.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part: Pod
Name: Umbrella

The Umbrella attacks from the air.  They explode in the air, attacking foes 
mid-air nearby.

I really don't have any tips on this match.  According to Hyper Omega, you 
should be able to use Harry's advice by moving around them in a circle when 
they fire at you.  Be sure to knock down one first, as usual, and attack the 
robo that is attacking Harry.  Remember; using your bombs is not a good 
idea.

These Police Squad members know what they're doing.  The Javelin has the 
ability to move extremely fast across the stage, and on top of that, he has 
the Vertical Gun.  The Defender has the booster legs, which increase its 
already-good air-dash.  Its bomb and pod can both freeze you, so it can 
attack you with its powerful and fast gun, Drill.

Take out the Javelin first.  The Defender is a lot more difficult to take 
down.  When you're against Defender, fight him from a distance, as his Drill 
will easily get you up close.  You'll get them soon.

During the break time, go over to the Parts Generator for two more parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Right Flank H

The Right Flank H goes to the right, but arcs from the left.  When hitting a 
target, they're moved to the side, as to remove them from cover, or just get 
a better shot at them.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Short Thrust

The Short Thrust legs will decrease the length of your air-dash.  What good 
does this do?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, get up to your block.  Your next match is up against your 
neighbors, Carmen and Walt.

===================================================

You're pretty familiar with both their parts.  Remember, keep Harry alive, 
and avoid their guns as much as possible.  Avoiding their pods wouldn't be a 
bad idea, either.

The game will now automatically save for you.

After the battle, head over to the Parts Generator for more new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Right 5-Way
The Right 5-Way.  At last!  This gun will fire 5 columns of shots that curve 
slightly with each round.  It'll go the opposite direction in the air, so use 
that in your strategies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Wide Jump

The Wide Jump increases the distance a robo can go without an air-dash or 
continuous jump.  I'd recommend using it with a Funky Big Head model.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, head back over to your block for your next opponents.  
They're Bogey and his waiter!

------------------------|-------------------------|
Crevice Court           |Crevice Court            |
===================================================

Harry has selected a bad gun.  Therefore, he's an easy target for the 
Peregrine.  The Peregrine's gun is the Stun.  It can deal a lot of damage if 
you use it repeatedly on the same foe.  Bogey's robo won't do too much, as 
the Bubble gun is extremely easy to dodge.  Try to take out the Peregrine 
before it runs around and defeats Harry.  If Harry is beaten, take out the 
Peregrine as fast as possible.  It'll just be between you and Bogey's robo, 
which is extremely easy to defeat.  

After you've defeated them, you've won the preliminary matches.  Head over 
to the Parts Generator for two more new parts.  I'm sure you'll be pleased 
with the first.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Swift

The Swift!  The Swift robo is a Little Raider model, similar to that of the 
Peregrine.  It has a poor defense, and an average attack, but it makes up for 
that with its amazing Speed stat.  It takes a lot of damage if hit once, so 
you should be putting that Speed to good use.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Satellite

The Satellite moves around in a very small area.  When the opponent gets 
near, it will explode on them for a chunk of damage.  It's good to use in 
very small stages.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At last, you're on to the real big matches.  Head over to the block to go up 
against Mira and Roy.

=========================

Gun: Ion                |Gun: Magnum              |

------------------------|-------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |High-Rise Cell           |
===================================================

At last, some new parts to go over!  Mira's robo is the Sol, an Aerial Beauty 
model.  It's similar to the Milky Way, but it has a greater Speed.  The gun 
Sol is using is the Ion.  It fires rounds that go to the left and to the 
right.  The Delta bomb will shoot bombs that go to the occupied area of the 
robo, which is good for using against a foe that's moving on the ground.  Her 
other parts have been seen before.

Roy uses the Halberd, a Strike Vanisher model.  It's faster than the Javelin, 
so this is basically a team of great speed.  The gun he uses is the Magnum.  
It's got an average range, and it knocks you down if it hits.  The bomb he 
uses is the Geo Trap bomb.  It is pretty fast, and has a large explosion on 
the ground, so it's got a pretty good range.  It's the part I use for my 
bomb, so I'd say it's pretty good.  Other than those, you've also seen all 
of Roy's parts before.

Keep moving around.  The Sol and Halberd are extremely fast compared to the 
other robos of their model, so be on the alert.  These guys are also a lot 
more skilled than your previous opponents, so taking them down won't be an 
easy matter.  Protect Harry, and keep from hitting the magma areas.  Other 
than that, you should do fine.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: High-Rise Cell

The High-Rise Cell is sort of a High-Rise Plaza.  It has magma zones in the 
corners, so be sure to avoid those.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

After the match, head over to the Parts Generator for some new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Bubble

The Bubble gun will fire huge bubbles that float very slowly towards your 
opponent.  The range isn't good, but if you hit your opponent repeatedly, the 
damage is pretty good.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Wall

The Wall Bomb doesn't go very far.  However, if it does hit your opponent, it 
deals a great amount of damage.  It's really good if an opponent close to you 
won't stop bugging you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you get your parts, head over and talk with Harry.  He'll say something 
about Marcia, and that you should go talk to her.  Go and try to talk with 
Marcia, and she'll say that she wants to be alone.  Go back to Harry, and 
he'll tell you to go back to Marcia.  This time, he'll come with you.  Harry 
will try to snap her out of it by making her become your partner for the 
next match.  How?  He'll fake a stomach cramp.  Go to the deck in the center 
of the room.  There, you'll see that you're up against Evil and a Lackey.  
Marcia will still refuse to fight.  Though it seems as if you're in trouble, 
Evil will tell his Lackey to take a break, so that it's an even 1-on-1 
match.  

=========================
Evil                    |
========================|
Body: Juggler           |
Gun: Left Pulse         |
Bomb: Standard K        |
Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

Evil's Juggler is just as easy as he usually is.  He's got the Left Pulse 
gun, but that doesn't look like it will help him much.  You've seen 
everything the Juggler has on, therefore you know the best strategies needed 
to take it down.  Juggle the Evil around a bit with your gun, bombs, and 
pods.  It's play-time!  Don't take this lightly, though.  This is pretty 
much warm-up for your final match.

After the match, Evil will tell his Lackey he just let you win so you could 
gain some self-confidence.

When you're done, head over to the Parts Generator for a single part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Left Pulse

It looks like Evil dropped it when you beat him up in the last match.  The 
Left Pulse gun fires 8 bullets that start at the left, and slowly make their 
way right.  It's the opposite when you're in the air, so use this to your 
advantage as well.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's time for the final match.  You're up against Ernest and Linda.  When the 
battle is about to start, Marcia will tell you that she still can't fight.  
You and Ernest will start a warm-up battle without her, while Harry talks to 
Marcia.  When Marcia talks about her brother, Harry will get really mad at 
her, because she's been putting off matches thinking about her brother.  
Harry will yell at her about him and you being there for her.  She'll 
remember her brother telling her that there would be someone who would 
understand her.  She never stopped to think that those people could be you 
and Harry.  After that, she'll finally snap out of it, and she'll enter with 
you into the match against your boss and Linda.

=========================
Marcia (Partner)        |
========================|
Body: Milky Way         |
Gun: Homing Star        |
Bomb: Standard K        |
Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
L Formation             |
===================================================
Ernest                  |Linda                    |
========================|=========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |Body: Seeker             |
Gun: Sniper             |Gun: Hornet              |
Bomb: Acrobat           |Bomb: Tomahawk B         |
Pod: Twin Flank G       |Pod: Cockroach G         |
Legs: Long Thrust       |Legs: Long Thrust        |
------------------------|-------------------------|
L Formation             |L Formation              |
===================================================

Be careful about Ernest.  Ernest is using the Metal Bear, which, as you know, 
is a very powerful Metal Grappler model.  Ernest uses the Sniper, which 
shoots a quick powerful round straight ahead.  The bomb he uses is the 
Acrobat, which doesn't help him much.  It'll blast him into the air, which 
doesn't hurt him, but makes him easier to knock down.

Linda uses the Seeker, a Lightning Sky model.  It has better defense than the 
Defender and Breaker, but it still doesn't have a great defense, so it's easy 
to knock down.  The gun she uses is the Hornet.  It fires 5 hornets, which 
home in on the foe.  They're easy to dodge, but be careful.  If one hits, 
odds are they'll all be sucessful in their attacks.  Everything else, you've 
seen before.

Take out Linda first; you can take her out more quickly than Ernest.  When 
she's down, take out Ernest, and you'll win.

After the match, you will be congratulated by Ernest.  He and Linda will tell 
you that they graduated from Takuma University, which is a very good college 
that only the best can graduate from.  It looks like it's pretty impressive 
that you took them out.  Mira will give you an invitation that says you can 
come over to her house for a celebration party.  

Before you head out, go over to a Parts Generator for the parts you obtained 
for defeating Ernest and Linda.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Right Pulse

What a coincidence!  You just received the Left Pulse.  Now, you have the 
Right.  The Right Pulse gun will fire eight rounds that start at the right 
and curve left.  They do the opposite in the air, just like the Left Pulse.  
Both are just switched around.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Acrobat

This is not a part I'd recommend to use.  It shoots you high into the air 
when deployed.  It doesn't decrease your health, but it takes off a DWN bar.  
Little Raiders are knocked down if they use this, 
so definitely don't use it then.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

It's time for Mira's Party.  Head out to Mira's and Harry's house.  You guys 
will have a meal, chat, and have a good time.  After awhile, Marcia will ask 
about the robo at Bogey's Cafe.  Mira will completely ignore the question.  
She'll ask about your watch.  You will talk about your father, and will make 
a connection between your dad and Marcia's brother, and how they both have 
vanished.  After the party, you'll be allowed to go.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5L. DAY 11: THE TRUTH                                                       //
=============================================================================

You'll wake up on your own, put your clothes on, and walk outside.  Head 
over to the Steel Hearts headquarters.  Ernest will congratulate you and 
Marcia again for defeating him.  Ernest will then tell you that the Police 
Squad has invited you three again for some more practice.  You three will 
head over to the Police Squad HQ.

Once inside, go back to the Training Room.  Speak to the chief.  He'll tell 
you guys about a plan they have after the practice.  You'll each go one at 
a time, battling a series of Police Squad members.  Harry and Marcia will 
complete it before you.  After them, it's your turn.  Your first opponent 
is one of the Police Squad members.

=========================
Police                  |
========================|
Body: Defender          |
Gun: Needle             |
Bomb: Straight G        |
Pod: Throwing P         |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

This Police Squad member only uses one new part.  The Needle gun is dangerous 
in the air.  If it strikes you, all 3 of the powerful shots will be 
successful.  Other than that, taking out this Police Squad member should be 
pretty easy.

After the match, head over to a Parts Generator for some new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Straight G

The Straight G fires straight in front of you, as the name explains.  If it 
hits your opponent, they're blasted upward.  It's very useful if you want to 
get a good shot at them.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Get ready for you next match.  Your second opponent is another regular Police 
Squad member.

=========================
Police                  |
========================|
Body: Javelin           |
Gun: Afterburner        |
Bomb: Submarine P       |
Pod: Trio H             |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Diamond Cell            |
=========================

This guy only uses one new part as well.  The Afterburner fires shots that 
start extremely slow at first.  However, after a split second, their speed 
boosts.  The shots will either shoot you back, or bring you toward him.  It 
all depends on whether he was in the air or on the ground when he fired the 
rounds.  Be careful; he could shoot you into the magma zones.  Be sure to 
avoid the shots as much as possible.  If you keep avoiding him, you'll 
eventaully win.  Make sure that you're dodging as much as possible.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Diamond Cell

The Diamond Cell is basically a Diamond Fences stage.  The only difference is 
that there are magma areas in the corners.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

After this match, head over to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Submarine K

The Submarine K is an extremely slow bomb, if I do say so myself.  However, 
if it hits you, you get an automatic down.  It's good against slower foes, as 
they don't move too much, either.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, you're up against Roy.  However, Linda will interrupt, 
saying she wants to battle you first, to see if you've been improving since 
you defeated her the day before.

=========================
Linda                   |
========================|
Body: Seeker            |
Gun: Hornet             |
Bomb: Dual C            |
Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |
=========================

Linda is using the the same body and gun she was using before.  Remember that 
the Dual C explodes not only in front, but behind the foe as well.  When the 
blast hits, they're also shot upward, leaving you vulnerable to even more 
shots.  You can defeat her again, as long as you use the basic strategies you 
need to.  Be sure to avoid the Hornet, as if one hits, they'll swarm on your 
robo.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Dual C

It's the bomb you just saw Linda use.  It explodes in front of and behind the 
foe, and blasts you upwards, leaving them open for a good shot from a gun or 
pod.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you get your parts, head over for your next battle.  Now Roy is really 
going up against you.  No interruptions.

=========================
Roy                     |
========================|
Body: Halberd           |
Gun: Magnum             |
Bomb: Straight T        |
Pod: Double Wave        |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |
=========================

Remember, Halberd is the best of the three Strike Vanishers.  Avoid his 
Magnum gun, which you've encountered before.  Keep at a distance.  He's 
really good at close range.  Though he's a Strike Vanisher model, you could 
stay at a distance relatively well with a Little Raider or another Strike 
Vanisher.  If he gets really close to you, shoot him as much as possible 
before he can get you.  Keep moving, and eventually, you'll take down your 
first non-regular police officer.

After that, head over to the Parts Generator again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Wave

The Wave pod will send explosions in a sort of wave, like the name says 
itself.  You've seen it several times before.  Now, you finally have it as 
your own.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you've defeated Roy, next up is Mira., Harry's sister.  You've battled 
her before as well.

=========================
Mira                    |
========================|
Body: Sol               |
Gun: Ion                |
Bomb: Delta             |
Pod: Caboose C          |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |
=========================

Wow.  Since your last encounter, Mira has only changed her pod.  This should 
be easy.  Her Ion and Delta are very dangerous, so watch out.  Mira has a lot 
of shots, bombs, and pods flying around the place.  You don't want to run 
into one of them.  Like your match against Roy, don't get too close.  Mira 
will continuously try to get up close to you, and hit you with her gun and 
bomb, so be sure to avoid her as much as possible.  It looks like it won't be 
as easy as we thought it would be.

After you defeat Mira, head over to the Parts Generator again for a new 
part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Float F

The Float F will hang around the opponent in the air, then shoot down when 
it's ready to attack.  If it hits, the target hit will be thrown to the 
side.  It's quite useful in certain situations.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After that, you should be done.  However, Chief will want to face you now.  
Good luck on that!

=========================
Chief                   |
========================|
Body: Metal Ox          |
Gun: Rayfall            |
Bomb: Standard X        |
Pod: Caboose X          |
Legs: Ground            |
------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |
=========================

Ah, the man of all the Police Squad members.  This guy has a lot of explosive 
parts he's willing to use on you.  The Metal Ox is a buffed up Metal 
Grappler, so watch out.  This could get ugly.  The new gun, the Rayfall gun, 
is extremely effective.  You'll have to dodge all the shots in order to get 
close to Metal Ox.  Don't get too close.  The bomb and pod are X's, so be 
sure to keep your distance from those.  Use a quick robo to dodge all of the 
Metal Ox's attempts to hit you.  Take down the chief!

The game will now automatically save for you.

After you defeat the chief, they'll tell you that you are now qualified to 
receive the Class-S License.  You, Harry, and Marcia have all gotten to this 
point.  Though you are confused, they tell you that Class-A is the highest a 
normal person could go.  In order to become a Class-S Commander, you must 
be recommended to take the test by existing Class-S Commanders.  Roy, Mira, 
Linda, and the Chief will all tell you that they're Class-S.  They all 
recommend you, and you each must take the final test.

Before you do, check out the Parts Generator to get some more parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Sword Storm

The Sword Storm fires long rounds into the air.  After awhile, they start 
homing in on the foe.  Most of the shots won't be able to hit you, so this is 
apparently a useless gun.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Standard F

Whoopie, you get a Standard weapon.  It's like the first pod you received, 
but you're thrown sideways if you're hit.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, you'll be led to take a skill test against a computer.  
Who's the computer going to use?

======================[O]
Computer               []
======================[O]
Body: Rahu I /!\       []
Gun: Rahu I /!\        []
Bomb: Grand Cross /!\  []
Pod: Penumbra I /!\    []
Legs: Ultimate /!\     []
----------------------[O]
Nature Park            []
======================[O]

Well, what a pleasant surprise!  At the beginning of the battle, make sure 
that you do your best to get out first.  After that, use your gun as much as 
possible to give it a quick down.  Rahu I is a lot more skilled since your 
last battle, so be sure to use all you know in this match.  Attack it 
from a distance.  Watch out for the gun, as if it hits you, that's not good.  
This is the hardest battle you're going to have thus far.  Do your best, and 
you'll take him down again.

After this match, you've received your license.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW LICENSE

Name: Class-S License

The Class-S License is the highest class anyone can possibly get up to.  You 
must be recommended by Class-S Commanders in order to qualify.  When you 
receive this license, you're taught about many things that regular commanders 
aren't.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you defeat the computer, head out and talk with the others.  All three 
of you received your Class-S Licenses.  Now, it's time to learn a little bit 
about Rahu.  The robo you were up against is Rahu, a living organism.  It 
almost destroyed all of mankind.  You didn't actually fight him; the computer 
was mimicing its behaviors.  A long time ago, there was actually natural 
minerals.  There were trees, grass, rocks, lava, and other real things, 
rather than a bunch of plastic.  You'll all be taught about Rahu, then Roy 
will suggest you come back tomorrow.  You'll be dismissed, and you'll be 
allowed to go home.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5M. DAY 12: THE Z SYNDICATE TAKES RAHU                                      //
=============================================================================

Wake up, change your clothes, head outside, and go to the Daimon Restaurant, 
NOW!  Rahu's there again!

When you're there, Evil is already battling Rahu.  Talk with Harry and Marcia 
for awhile.  Eventually, Evil will defeat Rahu.  Marcia will tell him to give 
the Police Squad Rahu.  However, Evil will refuse.  Because he's selfish, 
Evil plans to join the Z Syndicate by giving them Rahu.  It is then revealed 
that his Lackeys were about when they were guarding the lab, and shut down 
the security while they were in the Reception Room.  Z came in, and began 
searching for something.

After this horrific discovery, Eliza walks in.  She will say that she doesn't 
remember you, and Evil is distraught.  You say you will defeat her, because 
you've had the most experience with her.  Get ready!

======================[O]

Eliza is using the same things she did last time.  The only difference is 
that she's using a Waning Arc, which does the exact opposite of the Waxing 
Arc.  Do the same thing you did last time, and trash this insane woman's 
robo!

The game will now automatically save for you.

After you defeat Eliza, Oboro and the blue-haired man will walk into the 
restaurant.  Eliza will leave when they come.  Oboro and his partner want to 
take Rahu.  Marcia volunteers to help you defeat them.  She will reveal that 
the blue-haired man is her brother, Sergei.  Even so, you have no choice but 
to fight him.  He's on the bad side, and will pay dearly for his actions.

======================[O]======================[O]

Oboro uses the Rakensen, an illegal part.  It's an upgraded Strike Vanisher 
model.  Rather than the normal 3 air-dashes, the Rakensen is able to air-dash 
six consecutive times, so be careful.  The gun he uses is the Wyrm, another 
illegal part, which is an upgraded Dragon gun.  Rather than the regular one 
dragon, the Wyrm is capable of firing four dragons from the ground, and a 
large and fast one from the air.  Be sure to watch out for it.  You'll be 
knocked down immediately if you're hit.  The Treble is an upgraded Delta 
Bomb.  It's larger, and a lot more powerful.  The Cheetah is a faster version 
of the Speed Pod P.  The Swallow, the final illegal part, increases oboro's 
speed a lot.

Sergei used two illegal parts last time.  Now, all five of his parts are 
illegal as well.  The Wyvern bomb is an upgraded Standard X bomb.  It's a 
lot more powerful, so avoid it at all costs.  The Wolf Spider is an upgraded 
Spider bomb.  It also works a lot like it, but it's more powerful, and more 
aggressive, so avoid that as well.  The Raven greatly increases the jump 
height, as well as the dash speed.  Be sure to dodge Ruheil as much as 
possible.

Both of these guys are extremely powerful, due to the fact that their parts 
are all illegal.  Use all you know to take them down.  Take out Oboro first.  
Marcia's all the help you can get, so make sure she doesn't fall.  She also 
uses the Homing Star, which is very useful.  If she's being attacked, down 
the robo who is attacking her.  You don't want her to take anymore damage.  
It may take a few tries, but eventually, you'll beat them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Castle Keep

The Castle Keep stage is based on an actual Castle's inner keep.  There are 
many walls you can use to your advantage.  It feels like you're really 
existing during the Medieval Times!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle, Oboro and Sergei will take Rahu with them.  They'll 
disappear before your very eyes.  Head over to the Police Squad Headquarters 
to bring the bad news.  It's time for another lesson.

Roy is out trying to find the Z Syndicate's Lair.  They feel that it's in the 
outside world.  The outside world is basically what it's called; the outside 
world.  Nothing too special.  According to this game, the world is flat, and 
at the end of the world, there's a wall that is surrounding our world.

After the lesson, Chief leads all of you into the bathroom.  At first, you're 
confused.  Then, the chief will reveal a sensor that will activate the 
elevator, installed inside the bathroom.  The elevator will lead to an 
abandoned train station.  Harry touches Marcia.  Everyone ignores it, and 
everyone hops into the train.  The train takes off to another destination.  
When the train stops, everyone follows the chief into a hallway that looks 
like outer space.  At the end of the hallway, the chief tells you that you're 
inside the statue at the Daimon Restaurant.  Though you and your friends 
don't know that there's a place beyond the wall, the chief will press a 
button, and you'll get a view of the outside world.  There's a large dome 
behind you.  The chief indicates that that is the real world.  After that, 
you all decide to go back.

In the chief's office, they tell you that only Class-S officers are allowed 
to know about this stuff.  Marcia and Harry will argue that it doesn't seem 
right for everyone else to be completely oblivious to this.  When they saw 
it, they felt uncomfortable knowing that everyone else didn't know about it.  
The purpose of the Class-S Commanders is so that everyone else who isn't can 
live their normal lives.

The Police Squad needs the help of the Steel Hearts to stop Rahu from 
destroying anything else.  Now that the Z Syndicate has him, there's no 
telling what can happen.  You're unsure of whether you should go or not, so 
they allow you to go home and think about it.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
5N. DAY 13: ATTACK ON Z'S LAIR                                              //
=============================================================================

You've decided that you're going to help the Police Squad stop the Z 
Syndicate from destroying the world using Rahu's power.  Best of luck to 
you!

Head over to the Police Squad Headquarters.  Ernest wasn't yelling at you on 
your cell phone, so you think something might be wrong.  When you and your 
pals get there, Ernest will tell you that he got a call from the Chief at the 
Police Squad Headquarters.  He is told that this mission will pay a lot of 
money, but Ernest hesitates to send you there.  He knows that it is going to 
be an extremely dangerous job.  No matter what he's done to you, or what you 
think about him, Ernest wants you and your friends to remember that he likes 
you guys.  This will make Harry and Marcia shed a few tears.  It could even 
make me cry to hear it from a guy like him.

Head over to the Police Squad Headquarters.  Go to the Chief's office, and 
tell him that you've accepted the mission.  After that, head out to the 
elevator.  When at the bottom, use the train again to get to the hallway.  Go 
to the back, and enter the outside world.  From there, Roy will guide you 
guys to the Z's Lair.  When you're in, keep going forward, and you'll find 
there are two different paths to take.  Marcia and Roy go to the right.  You, 
Harry, and Mira go to the left.  Go through the door in front of you, and 
you'll find several Z Lackeys lounging around.  You and the 2 siblings each 
get one of them.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Glaive            |
Gun: 3-Way              |
Bomb: Wall              |
Pod: Spider             |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
Magma Hole              |
=========================

This Z Lackey is very easy.  All of his parts you've seen before.  The only 
thing you should know about is that he has the 3-Way gun.  As you know, it's 
quite dangerous, so avoid its shots at all costs.  Use a few good slide shots 
here and there, and fire at him with bombs and pods whenever you can.  Keep 
up your strategy, and he'll fall quickly.

The game will now automatically save for you.

After the battle, you'll notice that Mira and Harry also defeated their 
opponents.  Find a Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Needle

The Needle fires three shots.  One will head straight forward, and the other 
two head forward at an angle.  If they're fired from the air, there's a 
better accuracy, so use it as much as you can from there.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you've gotten your parts, walk around the Z Lackeys you just defeated, 
and proceed to the next room.  There, you'll find Shiner.  Your suspicions 
were correct.  Get ready to fight him again!

======================[O]
Shiner                 []
======================[O]
Body: Breaker          []
Gun: Flame             []
Bomb: Double Mines     []
Pod: Beast F           []
Legs: Feather          []
----------------------[O]
Crevice Court          []
======================[O]

Shiner's Breaker has a good Attack and Sky, but its Defense is awful.  Use 
this weakness to your advantage.  He's pretty much using most of the same 
parts he did when you fought him last time.  Keep at a distance, and shoot 
with a long range gun.  At a long range, the Flame and Beast F will prove to 
be worthless.  If you get him really good, he'll fall.

After you defeat Shiner, find another Parts Generator for a surprise.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Defender

Your first Lightning Sky!  The Defender is a Lightning Sky model, just as I 
just said in the last sentence.  It has one very large air-dash, and you can 
attack in mid-air as well.  Reminds me of the military planes.  It's useful 
in several areas.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you've gotten your part, head over to the next room.  You'll find three 
more Z Lackeys.  These guys are a lot tougher than the first guys you fought, 
so get ready.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |
Gun: Drill              |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Speed P            |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Basic Cell              |
=========================

The Z Lackey shouldn't be taken lightly.  The Metal Bear is a very powerful 
robo.  Knocking him down can be a real pain.  The magma would prove effective 
against him.  Avoid getting too close.  The Drill gun will easily get you.  
Also, you should make sure you don't jump too much.  the Drill gun will get 
you there, too.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Basic Cell

It's a Basic Arena with two magma zones in two of the four corners.  It's 
not too different, so it's not like you got anything new.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

After you win your battle, Mira will fall against her opponent.  It's up to 
you to stop the Z Lackey.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Metal Ape         |
Gun: Needle             |
Bomb: Delta             |
Pod: Caboose X          |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Double Dead Line        |
=========================

The Metal Ape is not too much different than the Metal Bear.  Looks like 
you're in for another rough battle.  The Metal Ape doesn't use anything new.  
Avoid using the Defender.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Double Dead Line

The Double Dead Line holosseum is a holosseum with a bunch of conveyor 
belts, and a lot of walls.  It's useful for robos with a low jumping 
distance.  It's not so good for Little Raiders and Lightning Skies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle, Harry will see that Mira is injured.  He leaves the room, 
trying to find a first-aid kit.  While he's gone, a Z Lackey in boxers will 
come out of the locker room.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Metal Ox          |
Gun: Shotgun            |
Bomb: Geo Trap          |
Pod: Reflection         |
Legs: Wide Jump         |
------------------------|
Magma Zone              |
=========================

The third Metal Grappler.  This guy is using the Shotgun, so be sure to avoid 
those at all costs.  He's using the Geo Trap bomb as well, so you'd best 
avoid that.  Use a couple of good slide shots, and try to use the magma zone 
to your advantage, and you'll defeat him in no time.

The game will now automatically save for you.

After the battle, Harry will come back, and see the guy with boxers.  He'll 
then go and help Mira, and tell you to go ahead alone.  Before you do, 
though, go to a Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Standard F

Another Standard part, similar to that of the regular Standard.  It just 
hits you sideways after you're hit.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Seeker F

The Seeker F is really good at homing.  It's a weaker form of Rahu's pod, but 
it's very good nonetheless.  It shoots up to two on the holosseum at once, so 
it's double the pleasure.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Shotgun

At last, the Shotgun is your's!  The Shotgun only fires one short-ranged 
round, but the opponent is knocked down instantly if he is hit by this gun.  
As Hyper Omega states, it's good with a Little Raider.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=========================
Z Tech                  |
========================|
Body: Shrike            |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Wave              |
Pod: Twin Flank G       |
Legs: Formula           |
------------------------|
Magma Ruins             |
=========================

The Shrike uses the Formula legs.  These legs are increasing its speed.  It's 
already fast enough!  You have to try your best to take him out.  The Shrike 
also has the Gatling, and this is very deadly when being used against you.  
Especially when a Little Raider is using it.  Be sure to finish this match 
quickly, as the amount of magma is slowly increasing, and consuming the free 
land.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Magma Ruins

The Magma Ruins is a stage in which there is a ring of magma around the edge 
of the outer edge of the stage.  Over time, this ring will melt the stage, so 
matches should be pretty fast.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you defeat him, get ready to go against his partner.

=========================
Z Tech                  |
========================|
Body: Tank Head         |
Gun: Trap               |
Bomb: Tomahawk G        |
Pod: Wall               |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Dead Line               |
=========================

Use the magma to your advantage.  Take out the Tank Head as much as possible, 
and knock him into the magma a few times.  He's a lot easier than your 
previous opponent, so this should be a rather simple match.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Dead Line

The Deal Line stage is similar to that of the Double Dead Line.  The only 
difference is that there's only one area of magma, rather than two.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The game will now automatically save for you.

After the match, the Z Tech will say something about illegal parts before 
finally passing out.  Before you go on, go to a Parts Generator for some new 
parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Formula

The Formula Legs increase the Speed stat of your robo on the ground.  It's 
great for Metal Grapplers and Funky Big Head models.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Tomahawk B

The Tomahawk B shoots up, the quickly descends onto the foe.  The opponent is 
show sideways, and the explosions last for awhile.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you get your parts, head on to the next room.  Walk up the hallway, and 
two Z Lackeys will walk in front of you.  Though it looks like your in this 
solo, Roy will come up, and assist you.

=========================
Roy (Partner)           |
========================|
Body: Halberd           |
Gun: Magnum             |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Basic Cell              |Basic Cell               |
===================================================

Both these guys are going to be quite tough.  Why?  Both are practically 
using the same parts!  The only difference is the pod, but they're both the 
same thing nonetheless.  Keep out of range of the Vertical gun.  That could 
really hurt you.  Make sure you worth with Roy to finish these guys fast.  
Use a powerful gun, and keep at a distance.  You'll get them.

After the match, head back to a Parts Generator for some new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Submarine P

The Submarine P will move slowly until it hits a target.  When the target is 
hit, they're blasted upwards, and the explosion stays for awhile.  Great 
against Metal Grapplers.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Dolphin

The Dolphin at last!  The Dolphin with arc, then move very quickly across the 
holosseum.  It's very useful against most opponents, and is most effective 
at close range.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you've gotten your parts, keep moving across the hallway where you just 
defeated the two Z Lackeys.  Two more Lackeys will attack you.

=========================
Roy (Partner)           |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
===================================================

There's only one new part these guys are using.  The Meteor Storm gun will 
fire several shots, and if at least half of the round hit you, it could prove 
to be deadly.  However, the Breaker using it isn't a good idea.  Watch out 
for Criminal's Shotgun, and do what you'd normally do in a 2-on-2 battle, and 
this match should be a breeze.

After you've defeated these two, head back to the Parts Generator for some 
more new parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Meteor Storm

The Meteor Storm gun can fire several rounds that spread out, then fall onto 
your foe.  It's more powerful at a distance.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Jumping B

The Jumping B explodes in the air when it's above your opponent.  It's not 
good against foes on the ground, but it prevents Lightning Skies and Little 
Raiders from escaping fire.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continue along the hallway with Roy.  At the split roads, choose the left 
path, and proceed until you find Marcia.  Continue to your left until you're 
in another room.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you're at the door, three Z Lackeys attack you.  Roy will hold all three 
of them off, while you and Marcia enter the room they were blocking.  Inside, 
you'll find Oboro and Sergei.  Rahu is inside a container of liquid.  He's 
transformed.  The Z Syndicate is trying to allow them to dive into Rahu, and 
use him against you.  Oboro will say that he must kill Marcia, despite the 
fact that she's related to Sergei.  Marcia will then realize that she will 
always remember her past with her brother, but now she must fight him for the 
sake of the world.  It's you and Marcia versus Sergei and Oboro.  Suddenly, 
Sergei turns on Oboro!

======================[O]

Wow, a 3-on-1 match!  You don't really have to assist Marcia and Sergei.  
With Marcia's Homing Star, and Sergei's Ruheil, you guys will take Oboro 
easily.  All you have to do is repeatedly shoot at Oboro.  He'll go down very 
fast if you've mastered your skills.

When Oboro falls, he'll think that Sergei is working for Eliza, or is trying 
to take Rahu for himself.  Sergei only meant to bring help.  Rahu didn't 
belong to anyone, and messing with him could cause a lot of trouble.  
Completely ignoring Sergei, Oboro will dive into the Rahu.  You and Marcia 
attack!

It's a 2-on-1 match against Rahu II.  Either Rahu II is trying to break free 
of Oboro, you and Marcia are too good, or Oboro doesn't know how to use Rahu 
II.  Rahu II is extremely easy in this match, so you'll have a pretty easy 
match here.  Just avoid his Rahu II gun, and you'll win.  All the II parts 
are new.  They're upgraded forms of the Rahu II parts.  Other than that, not 
much to look at.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Castle Citadel

A stage based on a real Citadel within a Castle.  There's a lot of walls for 
cover.  Use that to your advantage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle, Rahu II breaks free of Oboro, and flees.  Harry, Mira, and 
Roy enter the room.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Everyone will enter the Z Boss room.  Sergei will play a recording of your 
father's last words.

"Hero, you'll never know how proud I am that you have come so far.  Hero, if
you're listening to this message, that means Rahu has returned, and our time 
is short.  I wish that I could have been there to see you, to fight with you 
in this final, glorious moment... However, if you are hearing this, it also 
means that my time has come, and I am gone from this world.  I have given my 
loyal friend Sergei, details on your mission.  Trust him as you would have 
trusted me.  You do not have much time left.  Give Sergei the watch I gave 
you to care for so long ago.  With the power contained in that watch, you 
can defeat Rahu.  I've failed you as a father in life, and my final wish in 
death is nothing but a fool's errand.  I'm sorry, Son."

Sergei will begin a long lecture about this.  After receiving the Class-S 
License, he decided to explore the outside world.  Your father was living 
here, and he told him to find an inconsistency, Marcia.  Why?  Marcia's 
ability to half-dive.  Sergei will then explain that people didn't use to 
live inside the dome.  They also used to live beyond the dome.  However, 
Rahu destroyed the outside world, and now the world is confined in the dome.  
After that incident, Rahu was left in the outside world.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Rahu had no form.  However, he possessed a children's toy, thus the robo 
cube was born.  Rahu had two behaviors; acquire new targets, destroy them, 
take any abilities it doesn't have, and evolve (courtesy of Hyper Omega).  
Rahu would continue to evolve.

The survivors of this catastrophic event had their memories erased, so that 
they could live happy lives, just like everyone else.  A device was used to 
complete this task.  Your watch is an example of such a device.  Your dad 
was a scientist and a government official.  Therefore, he know everything 
about Rahu and the outside world.  Because he knew that Rahu would soon 
return, he stole one of the memory-erasing devices, and gave it to you.  
This is also why Marcia has the ability to half-dive; it was passed down 
by her ancestors.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Somehow, your father was able to escape with the device.  He gave it to you 
when you were a small child as a birthday present.  The Z Syndicate used to 
be an organization which told everyone the truth, in order to make sure they 
would be able to protect themselves.  However, he created another Syndicate 
with the best robo commanders because he thought chaos would erupt if too 
many people were told.  Sergei was his friend, therefore was obedient, and 
stook with him whichever path he took.  He left Marcia because he already 
knew he would in order to make her independent.  Your father became ill, and 
Eliza and Oboro wanted to become the leaders.  They fought each other, and 
the Z Syndicate collapsed.

The memory-erasing device is placed into your watch for a later purpose.  You 
know it's time.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Everyone will run out of the Z's Hideout.  Sergei will lead you to an 
abandoned Amusement Park.  There, you'll find 6 Z Lackeys.  There's 6 of you, 
so I guess you each get one.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Metal Ox          |
Gun: Afterburner        |
Bomb: Wall              |
Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: Ground            |
------------------------|
Basic Cell              |
=========================

This guy's not too hard.  He's using parts you have already encountered.  
Avoid being hit by the Afterburner.  Use the walls for cover, and attack him 
when his defenses are down, and you'll do fine.

Before you can do anything, twelve more Z Lackeys will show up.  They say 
they're 2-on-2 masters.  Get ready to battle them.

=========================
Mira (Partner)          |
========================|
Body: Sol               |
Gun: Ion                |
Bomb: Geo Trap          |
Pod: Speed D            |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |
===================================================
Z Lackey                |Z Lackey                 |
========================|=========================|
Body: Shrike            |Body: Tank Head          |
Gun: V Laser            |Gun: Vertical            |

------------------------|-------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |High-Rise Cell           |
===================================================

This shouldn't take too long.  Mira's on your side.  The Shrike is a lot more 
of a pain than the Tank Head.  It's using the V Laser, which fires two rounds 
in the shape of a V.  It's not too great on the ground; they go to your left 
and right if you're standing still.  However, if attacking from the air, 
you'd better make a run for it.  The Tank Head is using parts you've already 
encountered.

Take out the Shrike first.  If the Tank Head is attacking Mira, though, then 
attack the Tank Head.  These guys should go down pretty quickly.

Before you can move, more Z Lackeys appear.  Mira and Roy decide to hold them 
off while you and the others proceed.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Before you move on, you can try to find a Parts Generator for some new 
parts.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Ground

The Ground Legs decrease the height of your jump, so you stay closer to the 
ground.  They also allow for sharp turns, so it's not that bad.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Geo Trap

The Geo Trap fires a bomb that moves quickly in an arc, then hits the ground 
near your opponent.  The explosion lingers for awhile, and is large enough to 
reach past walls.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Diving

The Diving pod begins homing on your opponent after it is released.  It gets 
its name from the dive it makes when released.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the way there, Harry needs to go to the restroom.  For some reason, he 
asks you to go with him.  Follow him into the restroom.  A Z Lackey will be 
waiting for you there.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Glaive            |
Gun: Needle             |
Bomb: Right Flank H     |
Pod: Cockroach G        |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Robo's Room             |
=========================

This guy must be in a hurry to go to the bathroom; he wants to finish you 
fast!  The Needle gun can really hurt you, so be careful.  Use the walls as 
cover when he's firing at you.  After a shot, run out, and slide shot the 
Glaive.  Avoid getting hit by his bomb and pods as well.  You should do fine 
against him.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Robo's Room

A holosseum that is meant to look like an actual bathroom.  Use the walls for 
a good hideout while attacking the opponent.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you defeat the Z Lackey, two more Z Lackeys come out of the stalls.  
This time, you and Harry team up against them.

=========================
Harry (Partner)         |
========================|
Body: Glory             |
Gun: Trap               |
Bomb: Standard X        |
Pod: Speed P            |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Robo's Room             |
===================================================
Z Lackey                |Z Lackey                 |
========================|=========================|
Body: Breaker           |Body: Criminal           |
Gun: Bubble             |Gun: Vertical            |
Bomb: Tomahawk B        |Bomb: Gemini P           |
Pod: Satellite          |Pod: Diving              |
Legs: Booster           |Legs: Stabilizer         |
------------------------|-------------------------|
Robo's Room             |Robo's Room              |
===================================================

Harry won't help you too much, so it's up to you to defeat these Lackeys.  
There are a lot of walls, so you'll have to get closer than you usually do to 
get a good hit with your gun.  Use your bombs and pods more.  Use a powerful 
gun to beat up the Breaker first.  With one robo out of the way, it'll be a 
2-on-1 battle.  You should win in no time.

After the battle, Harry can finally go to the restroom.  Walk out to join up 
with Marcia and Sergei again.  After that, start walking up, and 4 Z Lackeys 
will come out.  They go by the Fabulous Fighting Four.  Walk to the fourth 
Lackey, and battle him.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Seal Head         |
Gun: Glider             |
Bomb: Tomahawk B        |
Pod: Float F            |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Merry-Go-Round          |
=========================

Be careful of the Glider gun.  It has an excellent homing ability, so it's 
hard to dodge.  Be sure to hide behind the merry-go-round, but be careful.  
Because it moves, you cover will move away from you.  Keep up with the 
merry-go-round, and shoot the Seal Head with a powerful, long-range weapon, 
and you'll win.  No wonder this guy was one of the Fabulous Fighting Four.  
He's harder than most other Z Lackeys.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Merry-Go-Round

The Merry-Go-Round is a holosseum with a large merry-go-round in the center 
of the stage.  Whoop-dee-doo.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you and your pals defeat the Fabulous Fighting Four, find a Parts 
Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Afterburner

The Afterburner gun shoots rounds that move very slowly at first, then 
increase in speed.  The opponent is pushed away from you, or pulled toward 
you, depending on whether the user is in the air or not.  Use it for 
combinations.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, walk up to the clown building.  It used to be a sort of 
fun house.  It's no so fun anymore.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Once you're inside, you'll notice that it's a sort of large maze.  You'll be 
told that it was used to get people lost.  The three of them enter the maze 
and turn right.  You don't have to follow them.  I suggest you don't.

Go through the maze, and eventually, a Z Lackey will pop up in front of you 
though the ground.  That's odd.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Earth             |
Gun: Gatling            |
Bomb: Geo Trap          |
Pod: Double Wave        |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Panic Walls             |
=========================

The Panic Walls is similar to that of the Panic Cubes.  However, the walls 
change, rather than the ground itself.  They will change after every twelve 
seconds, so keep this in mind.  Your opponent has the Gatling gun, so be sure 
to avoid it at all costs.  However, the Gatling is less accurate from 
a distance, so stay as far away as possible.  You'll have to win sooner or 
later.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Panic Walls

The Panic Walls is similar to the Panic Cubes.  The walls just change, rather 
than the ground shifting.  The walls will change every twelve seconds.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go back to a Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Dragon

The Dragon gun is only capable of firing a single round every time.  This gun 
is extremely slow.  However, the Dragon has a good homing ability, and its 
power is incredible.  It can take out a lot of HP with one hit, so be sure 
to use this when you need it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Proceed through the maze to find another Z Lackey.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Metal Ox          |
Gun: Splash             |
Bomb: Submarine D       |
Pod: Feint F            |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

The stage you're in is nothing like the Panic Walls.  The walls can change 
at random.  Also, your opponent is using the Splash gun.  You can fire 
several rounds with it, and you're opponent will be hurt very bad if you hit 
them repeatedly.  It's a rather cheap gun, but your opponent likes that.  
Stay behind cover as much as possible.  You'll get him.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Scramble Walls

The Scramble Walls is in the same shape as the Panic Walls.  However, they're 
"scrambled" up.  The walls can change at any time.  Basically, they change at 
random.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, head over to the Parts Generator again for another part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Stabilizer

The Stabilizer legs increase your acceleration.  There's nothing special 
about it.  It's like a Standard legs.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Proceed through the maze until another Z Lackey attacks you.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Drill              |
Bomb: Burrow P          |
Pod: Diving             |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Panic Walls             |
=========================

This guy is extremely easy.  Use a long range gun, and avoid the Drill.  
Also, watch out for the changing walls.  As long as you don't get too close, 
you can easily win this match.

When you've beaten him, go back to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Wave

The Wave bomb moves around for awhile.  When it explodes, it will send more 
explosion in the direction it was fired.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk around in the maze until another Z Lackey attacks you.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |
Gun: Stun               |
Bomb: Straight T        |
Pod: Speed D            |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
Panic Walls             |
=========================

This Z Lackey uses the combination of a Metal Bear and a Stun gun.  Be sure 
to use a long range gun again.  The Stun gun really gets annoying if it hits 
you a lot.  As long as you keep firing, and keep at a distance, this guy 
should go down like any other Z Lackey.

When you've beaten him, go to the Parts Generator again for another part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Quick Jump

The Quick Jump legs decrease the height of your jump.  This makes you less 
proned to attacks when you've landed.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keep walking to find another Z Lackey.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Tank Head         |
Gun: Meteor Storm       |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Float F            |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

The Tank Head is a pretty good defensive robo.  The Meteor Storm gun can 
really hit you bad if you're close.  Use a long-range gun again, and stay at 
a distance when firing.  This way, you won't be hit by the Meteor Storm.  
Blast him away from you if he gets too close.  This guy is easier than most 
of the other Z Lackeys in the maze.

When you've won, go back to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Seeker G

The Seeker G is like the other Seeker part you received earlier.  It's a 
weaker form of Rahu's pods.  They do the same thing.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you've gotten your part, walk around the maze some more until another Z 
Lackey attacks you.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Earth             |
Gun: V Laser            |
Bomb: Wave              |
Pod: Feint G            |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

Don't use a robo that gets too much Sky.  The V Laser can easily get them 
from above.  You should fly or jump straight towards him.  If you do, the V 
laser will prove to be useless because it fires in a V.  If he shoots you 
when he's in the sky, there's a straight shot, but if you hit him in time, 
it will disappear before it gets you.  You should do fine.

When you've beaten him, head to the Parts Generator again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Standard K

The Standard K is like the Standard bomb.  The only difference is that it 
instantly knocks you opponent down if it hits.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you're ready, walk around again until another Z Lackey appears.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Shrike            |
Gun: Shotgun            |
Bomb: Left Flank H      |
Pod: Caboose T          |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

A Shrike with a Shotgun...not good.  Use a fast robo as well to avoid being 
hit by a Shotgun round.  A Lightning Sky, Strike Vanisher, or Little Raider 
would work very well here.  One hit from almost any gun will knock him down.  
Also, he'll hit himself a lot with his own bombs.  This guy is very easy, so 
joke around with him a little if you want.

When you've beaten the poor Lackey, head to the Parts Generator again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Drill

The Drill Gun will fire several rounds at a great speed.  Though its range is 
rather short, if one bullet hits, all the rest will hit.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are you done yet?  Nope!

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Seal Head         |
Gun: Needle             |
Bomb: Smash             |
Pod: Seeker G           |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Panic Walls             |
=========================

Don't get too close or too far from this guy.  The Needle gun is effective 
against you, and if you're too close, the Smash bomb will explode on you, and 
deal massive damage to your HP.  If you're knocked down, the Seal Head will 
come up to you, and hit you as much as it can.  Get up, and attack it while 
you're still invincible.  Then, get away, and hide behind cover.  Keep in 
mind that the walls now move every twelve seconds again.  Use this to your 
advantage.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Freeze

The Freeze bomb will move until it hits the opponent.  If it does hit, the 
foe will be temporarily frozen, allowing the others a chance to attack or get 
away.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk some more until another Z Lackey comes out of the floor.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Swift             |
Gun: Vertical           |
Bomb: Tomahawk G        |
Pod: Sky Freeze         |
Legs: Ground            |
------------------------|
Panic Walls             |
=========================

It's all ground from here.  This Swift will play around with you, dealing 
damage with the Vertical gun, and keeping you from escaping with the Sky 
Freeze pods, which will temporarily stun you if you try to get away.  
Take the opportunities when they're given, and attack her as much as 
you can if she hits herself with the Sky Freeze.

When you've beaten this Lackey, go to the Parts Generator again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Beast F

Up to three pods can be released at once.  When deployed, the Beast F will 
slowly walk around until the foe gets close.  Then, it throws itself in front 
of the foe, causing them to run into it, and take damage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk around until another Z Lackey comes out of the ground.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Swift             |
Gun: Trap               |
Bomb: Straight G        |
Pod: Cockroach H        |
Legs: Formula           |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

This Swift has the Trap gun and Formula legs, allowing it to be extra fast 
and extra powerful.  Try to use another quick robo to avoid the gun as much 
as you can.  A Metal Grappler wouldn't work at this time.  Keep your 
distance, and shoot as much as possible to win.

When you've won, go back to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Sky Freeze

The Sky Freeze will move around in the sky.  If a robo happens to run into 
it, they'll be temporarily stunned in mid-air.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keep walking through the maze until you find another...room.  Head in to find 
Harry, Marcia, and Sergei again.  You'll talk for awhile, when all of a 
sudden, Eliza and a few Lackeys come out of a warphole.  These warpholes were 
used as transportation before.  Sergei will try and hold off Eliza, while you 
take on one of the Z Lackeys.

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Dour Head         |
Gun: Afterburner        |
Bomb: Gemini P          |
Pod: Reflection         |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

This person is extremely easy.  The Afterburner is not very effective in 
this stage.  Just shoot the Dour Head with a powerful gun to finish it off 
quickly.

When you've finished the battle, Sergei is still in the middle of his battle 
against Eliza.  Now is the opportunity for you, Harry, and Marcia to head to 
the next room.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you've teleported to the next room, you'll find that Eliza will appear 
in a warp hole in front of you.  Marcia will try to fight her, and will 
lose.  Then, Eliza appears in the warp hole behind you.  You know Sergei was 
defeated, but why are there two Elizas?  They tell you that they're identical 
twins.  Eliza was the first person you met.  The reason Eliza didn't 
recognize you at the Daimon Restaurant was because that was the other twin, 
Isabella.  You and Harry are the only ones left.  It's up to you!

Avoid the guns as much as possible.  The Waxing and Waning Arcs are extremely 
powerful.  Avoid the Orca as well.  You know how bad the Dolphin pod was 
already.  Keep Harry from losing.  He's all the help you've got.  Do your 
best, and eventually, you'll be able to defeat the twins.

When they're defeated, they'll talk about losing to your father.  They will 
remember how peaceful, and organized the Z Syndicate was when he was around.  
When he died, there was a lot of trouble going on.  Before they pass out, 
they tell you to move on to the next room.  Use the teleporter they were 
guarding to move on.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you enter the room, you'll see Rahu in his complete form.  Walk up to 
him and press the A button.  You'll use your watch, and Rahu will curl up 
and move up to you.  Dive, and prepare yourself!

==========================

Your very last battle in A New Journey.  Rahu III is extremely powerful.  
Even though there are three of you, it takes awhile to finally defeat him.  
The Rahu III gun is a lot more powerful than any other gun you've seen thus 
far.  Rahu III moves across the sky extremely fast.  The bombs and pods are 
also very powerful.  He still has the Ultimate legs.  When he's knocked down, 
he gets an instant rebirth.  He seems very accustomed to this stage.  It'll 
take everything you know to bring him down.  Hide behind the cover as much as 
you can.  Your partners are all the help you're going to get.  Don't let 
Harry and Marcia fall, or else you're done for.  Keep shooting at him, and 
try and try again.  All of the skills you've acquired since you first started 
playing this game will bring you to victory!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Lost world

This is Rahu's stage.  It looks sort of like a different planet.  There's a 
lot of walls, and gaps.  Use these in your strategies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you defeat Rahu, you'll go back to the Z Boss room.  All of your friends 
are there, and they have Eliza, Isabella, and Oboro with them.  Sergei will 
play another message from you father.

"Hero, I know I'll never see you again, and so I want to give you these last 
few words.  I'm sure people had their reasons for wanting to forget what had 
happened to them centuries ago.  And for those reasons, we live in an age of 
darkness, of forgetting.  We didn't have to remember the horros Rahu had 
created.  But there was a problem...  We also didn't remember that Rahu was 
still out here, waiting for its chance to return.  It seems obvious in 
retrospect that this all should happen.  After all, nobody knew to prepare a 
defense against it.  Nobody even knew Rahu existed anymore.  In fact, the 
government-created memories told us all that the dome was the extent of our 
world.  The ruins of the outside world would only bring doubts to the minds 
of those who saw it.  They would want to know what had caused all 
destruction.  And slowly, over time, the odds became greater that someone 
would discover the truth... Rahu.  The government could not abide this threat 
of instability.  It did away with all knowledge of outside.  This was theft, 
plain and simple.  The curious had been robbed of the ability to discover, to 
learn.  People learn from their mistakes.  We learn, and our thinking grows, 
leads us to a higher level.  As long as there is an unknown, humans will 
pursue it and seek to unravel its mysteries.  The government had stolen our 
growth, those things that force us to evolve and explore.  The memory-erasure 
device is a powerful tool, if used properly.  Our government, despire its 
pure motives, used it to an evil end.  They used it to stop us from evolving 
and growing.  Now that you've stopped Rahu, you must ask yourself how best to 
use the device.  Will you erase everyone's memory of Rahu once again?  If so, 
you'll prove that we have not grown as a species at all in the past few 
centuries.  Mankind will be frozen, static, incapable of bettering itself.  
Only death lies down that path.  Hero...I'm sure your friends are listening 
with you.  And I beg you all... We cannot repeat the mistake of our 
forefathers.  Consider carefully how you can use that device for the benefit 
of us all.  I leave the rest up to you.  Take care, Hero."

Thank god I didn't have to type all that.  After the message is done, you 
and your friends will discuss what's best for the people.  They decide to 
tell the people about everything.  It will later be discussed with the Chief 
and the dome officials.  You give your watch to Mira, and she will bring it 
to Linda.  

with that, you leave to tell Ernest about the truth.

Credits will roll, and you'll be in a first person mode with the parts you 
used to defeat Rahu.  When the credits end, and you've beaten up the Metal 
Ape enough, the game will give you an option to begin Grand Battle, or 
start A New Journey with all the parts.

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

of tournaments you must defeat in order to get back up to Class-S.  The 
journey continues!

=============================================================================

Lucy wakes you up, telling you to start your day at work.  She'll complain 
that she thought you could wake up by yourself.  After the conversation, you 
will get up and change your clothes.  When you're ready, head outside.  

When you get outside, you'll have your usual conversation with Lucy.  You'll 
talk about Rahu and the outside world, because the information was released 
to the public.  When she's done, she'll tell you to head on to work, so head 
out of the complex.

When you enter the Steel Hearts HQ, you are greeted by Harry and Marcia.  
You'll notice that the sofa is missing.  Harry will suggest that Ernest ran 
out of money, and had to sell it.  You'll then have an interesting 
conversation about how much sleep each of you received during your vacation.  
Marcia will talk about the time she spent with Sergei.  After awhile, Harry 
will start blaming Ernest for the "hoopla" because he gave them a break.  
Marcia will change the subject by talking about the news announced to the 
public.  Suddenly, Ernest will pop out of the back room in his movable 
chair.  He'll tell you he heard about your victory over the Z Syndicate and 
Rahu.  Ernest will say that Harry has a point when he says that Steel Hearts 
wasn't given any credit.

After the conversation, Ernest will tell you that work is closed.  Why?  The 
government has declared the day as a new holiday.  It's called the "World 
Remembrance Day."  On that day, everyone is to participate in a series of 
events.  These events are Custom Robo tournaments.  Ernest will tell you to 
head over to the Police Squad Headquarteres.  The Chief wants to talk with 
you.  On your way out, Harry will whine about him not being invited.  Ernest 
will blurt out that everyone wants to fight you...

When you're there, a Police Squad member will tell you that Chief and Mira 
are waiting for you in the Cheif's office.  Head inside, and talk with 
Chief.  He'll tell you about the decision they made, and how it wasn't easy 
telling the truth to the rest of the world.  They're worried that Rahu may 
come back, so they need to make Custom Robo battles more popular to prepare 
everyone for the future.  He'll thank you for giving them the opportunity 
to do so, as the world wouldn't exist anymore without your help.

Mira will tell you that the License Classes have been changed.  You are a 
Class-D License again.  The Chief will tell you not to worry, as when 
the tournaments begin, everyone will receive their proper licenses.  They 
will then explain the World Remembrance Day to you.  This day is the day 
where everyone learns about the formation of the world, its history, and 
learn from their past errors.  He'll then tell you that they're holding 
a series of tournaments for the next few days in honor of World Remembrance 
Day.  They'll then ask you to participate in the tournaments as well.  
The game will take over, and bring you to the Parts Generator.  After that, 
Mira will tell you to go back to your apartment complex.  The battles will 
start there.  There, you'll meet a Police Squad member, who will explain 
everything to you in more detail.  Good luck!

When you get there, a Police Squad member will greet you.  He'll explain that 
the rules have been changed during the Grand Battle.  Guides at every 
tournament location will be there to help you through the tournament.  Head 
into Walt's apartment for you very first tournament!  The Grand Battle 
begins!  

==============================================================================
6B. TEA ROOM TOURNAMENT                                                     //
=============================================================================

When you enter you'll find that your guide is a Police Squad member.  He'll 
tell you all about the Tea Room Tournament.  The Tea Room tournament is a 
no-limit battle.  The no-limit battle means you can fight however you want, 
as this is your very first tournament.  Each tournament has a different rule 
list, so be prepared for anything.  When you're ready, begin your first 
tournament!  Your first opponent is Lucy!

=========================
Lucy                    |
========================|
Body: Tank Head         |
Gun: Bubble             |
Bomb: Standard F        |
Pod: Standard           |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

The Tank Head is a very well-built robo when it comes to Sky and Defense.  
Be on your guard.  She seems to fire at random, though, making this match a 
whole lot easier.  Avoid the bubbles by keeping at a distance.  Shoot her 
with a long-range, powerful gun.  This shouldn't take too long.

When you've defeated her, get ready for your next opponent!  Your next 
opponent is Wendy.

=========================
Wendy                   |
========================|
Body: Swift             |
Gun: Starshot           |
Bomb: Dual C            |
Pod: Seeker F           |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Little Locomotive       |
=========================

Wendy should have a great advantage against you as well.  It seems as though 
they make this tournament easier, for your need to warm-up.  The Swift will 
not move around very much, making her an easy target.  Just hit her with a 
powerful gun.  The bridge or the train are great for hiding.  Make sure you 
avoid her Starshot gun, and you should be okay this match.

Your next opponent will be Will.

=========================
Will                    |
========================|
Body: Seal Head         |
Gun: Right Arc          |
Bomb: Crescent P        |
Pod: Float F            |
Legs: Wide Jump         |
------------------------|
Little Locomotive       |
=========================

Be careful.  Will uses the Seal Head, another Funky Big Head model.  It is 
using the Right Arc gun, which is deadly with the Seal Head.  Hide behind 
something, rather than attempting to dodge it from there air.  The Right 
Arc is almost dead accurate, and can get you easily.  His Pod is a lot of 
trouble on the ground, so be careful when you not in the air.  If you get 
cornered, try to make it through with a short air-dash or continuous jump, as 
to keep away from the Right Arc as well.  If you've avoided him enough, you 
should be able to get him before he gets you.

The game will now automatically save for you.

Your next opponent will be Walt.

=========================
Walt                    |
========================|
Body: Dour Head         |
Gun: Dragon             |
Bomb: Crescent C        |
Pod: Dolphin G          |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Ice and Snow            |
=========================

The Ice and Snow is really annoying in this round.  Because you're slipping 
all over the stage, your attacks are less accurate.  A perfect opportunity 
for a Lightning Sky to take over.  Try to dodge the Dragon gun as much as you 
can.  It really packs a punch if you're hit.  Stay at a medium range, and 
wait until he shoots his Dragon.  As long as you're avoiding his gun, you 
should win fairly easily.

Your next opponent will be Carmen.  Before you go against her, go to the 
Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Crescent C

The Crescent C flies is a crescent, as the name clearly explains.  It's has 
a very good range, and is capable of getting past walls.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

=========================
Carmen                  |
========================|
Body: Metal Ape         |
Gun: Blade              |
Bomb: Tomahawk B        |
Pod: Throwing D         |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Magma Hole              |
=========================

The walls in this stage will really cause you grief.  However, Carmen will 
not be able to use her weapons very well either.  Use a robo who's very quick 
in the air.  Zoom in, shoot her, and zoom back out.  Charging into the Metal 
Ape wouldn't be such a bad idea, as the Metal Ape is very slow, and will not 
be able to get away very easily.  She's a lot easier than most of the family, 
so this shouldn't take too long.  Use combinations with your gun and bomb, 
and you should win pretty quickly.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Blade

The Blade gun is extremely fast, as you don't have to wait after a shot.  
However, it isn't very strong, so I don't recommend it.  

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

After you've beaten Carmen, the Police Officer will tell you that you are 
able to participate in the Steel Hearts Cup.  Head over there, and show them 
your skills!

Remember, whenever you want to, you'll able to repeat the same tournament to 
improve your skills.

The game will now automatically save for you.

==============================================================================
6C. STEEL HEARTS CUP                                                        //
=============================================================================

When you arrive at Steel Hearts, Ernest will greet you.  Apparently, you've 
arrive for the Steel Hearts Cup.  He'll tell you that the Single-Use Battle 
Rules are in effect.  In other words, you can only use a part once.  Be 
careful on what you use.  The more you use, the less you have to choose 
from.  You'll still be able to use parts you lost with.  You are allowed to 
use legs more than once.  This is because you don't have many legs to choose 
from.  Most places, as stated by Ernest, will have the Single-Use Battle 
Rules.  This is used to help you understand the functions of several 
different parts.  Good luck!

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

Your first opponent is a boy.

=========================
Boy                     |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Afterburner        |
Bomb: Wave              |
Pod: Speed P            |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

The Splendor is using the Short Thrust legs, so getting him from the air 
won't be too hard.  This guy is good for using parts you've never used 
before.  Save the parts you like using for later.  The Splendor is using 
the Afterburner, though, so make sure you've got a fast robo who's ready to 
dodge at any time.  The Wave bomb is pretty dangerous if you've been using 
parts you're not good with, so avoid those as much as possible.  There 
aren't really any tips I can give you, because you're using the parts you 
want to use at certain times.  Just avoid the Afterburner and Wave, and you 
should be okay through the whole match.

Walk to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Speed P

The Speed P has a very good Speed.  They're not very good at hitting your 
opponent, though, so you should only use them if you're close up to your 
opponent.  Otherwise, they're useless.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Harry.

=========================
Harry                   |
========================|
Body: Glory             |
Gun: Twin Fang          |
Bomb: Straight G        |
Pod: Caboose C          |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Checkmate Foundry       |
=========================

Harry is extremely easy in this battle.  He is using the Twin Fang, which is 
weak in certain situations.  It has a very short range, and is very small, 
causing it to miss most of the time.  If you're too far, or too close, you 
won't be able to hit your opponent with this gun.  The Straight G and Caboose 
C should be fairly easy to avoid.  Based on the parts you are using, you'll 
have to come up with your own strategy against him.  Practice with some new 
parts on him.  You'll get him.  

When you're ready, head to the Parts Generator again for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Glory

The Glory is Harry's robo.  It's a Shining Fighter model.  It's a very 
well-balanced robo.  Definitely the body to use in various situations, such 
as Single-Use Battles.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a girl.

=========================
Girl                    |
========================|
Body: Shrike            |
Gun: Trap               |
Bomb: Tomahawk G        |
Pod: Jumping G          |
Legs: Formula           |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

The Girl is using the Shrike.  However, it doesn't move arount too much in 
this battle, so it should be pretty easy to hit.  Hit it up close with a 
powerful gun, if you choose, to deal a lot of damage to it.  No matter what, 
the Shrike will fall down in one hit.  She should be pretty easy to beat, 
because the Formula isn't going to help much, and the Bomb and Pod are pretty 
easy to avoid.  Take her down any way you feel like putting into effect.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you're ready, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Trap

The Trap gun fires a cluster of bullets when fired from the air.  It has a 
very good Rapid stat.  The bullets will delay a long time if they're shot 
from the ground, so be sure to keep your mind on that.  The delayed bullets 
are invincible, so using this gun as a "Trap" is a very effective way to 
win your matches.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Marcia.

=========================
Marcia                  |
========================|
Body: Milky Way         |
Gun: Hornet             |
Bomb: Geo Trap          |
Pod: Diving             |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
L Formation             |
=========================

Notice that Marcia isn't using her Homing Star this match for some reason.  
She's now using the Hornet, which is extremely easy to dodge as well.  Watch 
out for the Geo Trap; it can do some serious damage.  On top of that, it 
reaches through walls, so hiding won't be much use.  Marcia will stand in 
the same spot a lot in this match, so use this as an advantage to use a new 
gun.  The Trap gun would be great to try out in this match.  Just avoid the 
Geo Traps as much as you can, move around to avoid the Hornet, then blast 
her with a powerful gun.  She'll go down easier than in your previous 
encounters.

When you're ready, head to the PartS Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Milky Way

The Milky Way is an Aerial Beauty model.  It great in the air, as many other 
robos are, but lacks a great deal of Defense.  She's the most balanced of 
the Aerial Beauty models.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your final match is with the guide, Ernest.

=========================
Ernest                  |
========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |
Gun: Magnum             |
Bomb: Freeze            |
Pod: Caboose T          |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Basic Cell              |
=========================

He's definitely the hardest in the Steel Hearts Cup.  He's using the Magnum 
and the Freeze, which can do serious damage when used on the same robo.  Now 
is the time to use your best parts.  Move up close, fire, and if he gets a 
down, fire at him with your gun.  When he gets a rebirth, be sure to back up 
as fast as you possibly can.  If a Freeze pod hits you, remember that you'll 
be stunned temporarily.  Just do your best, and eventually, you'll win your 
final Steel Hearts Cup match.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Submarine D

The Submarine D has a horrible speed.  However, if it hits your opponent, a 
lot of damage is dealed.  It's a very useful weapon against models such as 
the Metal Grappler and Funky Big Head.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you've won, you'll be notified that you're allowed to participate in the 
Noodle Bowl.  Be sure to check that out!

The game will now automatically save for you.

=============================================================================

Upon entering the Daimon Restaurant, Don will explain the rules for the 
Noodle Bowl.  There are Single-Use Battle Rules again.  This means that you 
will only be able to use a part once.  Legs aren't included in this, as 
usual.  Before the tournament starts, he reminds you that your highest score 
is recorded.  After that, however, he'll tell you about the Task Score.  
There are basically three Task Scores for each tournament.  These scores are 
needed to obtain the trophies.  Based on how well you do, you will earn the 
Gold, Silver, or Bronze trophy, each being obtained be achieving a Task 
Score.  He'll babble on about the Task Scores needed in the Noodle Bowl, then 
will talk about obtaining the robo parts.  Remember to check your score in 
between battles.

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

Your first opponent is a boy.

=========================
Boy                     |
========================|
Body: Tank Head         |
Gun: Right Arc          |
Bomb: Left Wave         |
Pod: Spider             |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

Your first opponent is pretty easy to defeat.  Avoid the Right Arc gun when 
it is fired.  It isn't used very much, so you don't have to worry about it 
a lot.  The Spider pod is a real pain when you're on the ground.  Avoid those 
with a simple jump.  Just move around, firing at the Tank Head with a 
reasonably powerful gun, and he should go down.

When you defeat him, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Right Arc

The Right Arc will fire several rounds that curve at an angle.  It's a pretty 
straight-forward gun.  It's great for getting at opponents behind walls, but 
not much other than that.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is another boy.

=========================
Boy                     |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Left Pulse         |
Bomb: Right Flank H     |
Pod: Feint G            |
Legs: Ground            |
------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

This boy has hurt his chances of defeating you by using the Ground legs in a 
small stage.  His Left Pulse gun won't do him much good because there are a 
lot of obstacles in the stage.  Use your bombs and pods a lot, as he will not 
be able to avoid them too well.  Then, when he's down, fire at him as much as 
you can with your gun.  He'll lose quickly.

After this match, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Feint G

The Feint G will stop in front of its foe when it gets too close, then will 
blow the target straight up.  It's useful when scattered, but its Attack stat 
is not good.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a girl.

=========================
Girl                    |
========================|
Body: Earth             |
Gun: Stun               |
Bomb: Straight S        |
Pod: Diving             |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

Don't let this girl get too close.  With the Stun gun, she'll be a real 
pain.  Her bomb will be used a lot, so avoid those, as she'll have an 
opportunity to come at you with her gun if you aren't careful.  As long as 
you're at a distance, you should defeat her with few problems.

The game will now automatically save for you.

After you've gotten that finished, go to the Parts Generator for another new 
part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Stun

The Stun gun fires two short rounds that are capable of stopping your 
opponent in their tracks, leaving them wide open for a bomb or pod.  It's 
very useful, with the only fault being its short range.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Anthony.

=========================
Anthony                 |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |
Gun: Hornet             |
Bomb: Left Wave         |
Pod: Cockroach G        |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

Anthony should be as easy as your previous opponents.  Though he has the 
Hornet gun, it's easy to avoid with an air-dash or a quick body.  You should 
avoid the Cockroach as much as you can.  He'll try and get at you with the 
High Jump legs.  Don't let him do that.  Keep moving, and fire at him at 
every possible opportunity to win.

When he's been defeated, go to the Parts Generator again for another part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Left Wave

The Left Wave is launched from the left, then curves right.  It's able to 
explode in three blasts, which are able to get over walls.  Its direction is 
also changed when used on the ground or the air.  A very useful bomb, which 
should be used effectively during the Grand Battle.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Thomas.

=========================
Thomas                  |
========================|
Body: Criminal          |
Gun: Flare              |
Bomb: Submarine P       |
Pod: Umbrella           |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

The Criminal has the Flare gun, which could hurt you a lot if you're not 
careful.  Stay on the upper platforms to avoid the Flare gun as much as you 
can.  The Umbrella pods will be a threat if you're there, however.  You're 
going to need to move a lot to escape this match with minimal damage.

When he's out, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Flare

The Flare Gun fires rounds that will explode after a short amount of time.  
Timing will change if the gun is fired from the air.  Its attack is great, 
and its range is good.  It's an overall great weapon.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Legs: Formula           |
------------------------|
Chinese Bowl            |
=========================

You won't be given an opportunity to get your new part, but be sure to get it 
later.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Shrike

The Shrike is a Little Raider model.  It has an excellent speed, which makes 
it difficult to hit.  However, it lacks a great deal of Attack and Defense.  
Use it against a very slow robo.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you've defeated Don, he will tell you to challenge him in a noodle 
cookoff.  He'll then comment on your strength, and tell you about the 
tournaments being held at the Police Squad Headquarters.  Be sure to check 
the Noodle Bowl, though.

The game will now automatically save for you.

6E. POLICE SQUAD 2 ON 2 BATTLE                                              //
=============================================================================

When you have arrived, you'll be given the option of going to the 2 on 2 
Battle or the Computer Battle.  Select the 2 on 2 Battle first, and head into 
the Training Room.

When you get there, Chief will tell you that you have arrived for the Police 
Squad 2 on 2 Battle.  Your opponents are the top Police Squad members here, 
so be careful.  He'll then tell you that your partner's score affects your 
score, so try to help them as much as you can.  You'll ask about your 
partner, and Linda will appear in the room.  She'll say that she's your 
partner.  After joking about Harry for awhile, Chief will interrupt to begin 
the matches.

------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
===================================================

One of the Police is using the Knuckle.  He'll try and get at Linda with that 
a whole lot, so try to take him out first.  You should really protect your 
partner because their HP count as part of your score.  Switch opponents 
depending on who is attacking Linda.  Avoid both their bombs, and take extra 
precautions when the Cockroach G is near.  Have a bomb that can go across 
the stage at a great speed.  You should win this with ease.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Knuckle

The Knuckle gun fires extremely powerful, extremely short-ranged rounds.  
Wouldn't recommend it.  It's very good against slow opponents, but it's not 
of use for most of the robos.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponents will be Roy and a Police Squad member.

------------------------|-------------------------|
Frozen Field            |Frozen Field             |
===================================================

Roy isn't using his Magnum this time.  Instead, he's using the Left Pulse 
gun, which should also be avoided.  The Police Squad member is one of the 
police you just faced, so he shouldn't be too much of a problem.  Avoid 
both guns.  The Ground Freeze could be a problem for you as well.  Defeat 
the Defender first, as he goes down quickly.  Then, take out Roy's Halberd, 
and you'll win with minimal damage.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Ground Freeze

The Ground Freeze pod remains on the ground when deployed.  It will then 
attack the target.  If they hit, they will temporarily freeze your opponent, 
allowing you to get a good shot at them before they mobile again.  Great if 
used correctly.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponents are Sergei and Roy.

------------------------|-------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |High-Rise Plaza          |
===================================================

Sergei is only using one illegal part, the Ruhiel.  The Ion gun could be a 
problem in this match.  Roy is now using the Magnum, which spells out more 
danger for you.  Both pods are going to try and get you.  The Spider pod 
covers the floor, and the Sky Freeze takes the air.  Linda is in great danger 
in this battle.  Keep her safe at all times.  Defeat Sergei first, as his 
defense is low, and he should go down quickly.  Then, finish off Roy again, 
and you'll win.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you're ready, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Magnum

The Magnum fires a single round, which is very short-ranged, but extremely 
powerful.  You'll have to get really close to give some good damage to your 
opponent.  It's most effective with a Strike Vanisher model.  Just keep that 
in mind.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponents are Mira and Sergei.

===================================================

This match is going to get a little rough.  Mira is using the Halo gun, which 
is deadly if used correctly.  Sergei is still using the Ruhiel, an illegal 
part.  With the Quick Jump, it'll be hard to get Mira.  Surround her, with a 
bomb or pod, then fire at her with a powerful round from your gun.  Then, 
take out Sergei.  He'll also be hard to hit, as he's using a Lightning Sky 
model.  Do your best, and take them out however you want, and they'll go down 
after a well fought match.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Standard X

The Standard X is similar to that of the Standard, expect that it's the 
explosion model.  The Standard X will only launch one bomb at a time.  If it 
hits, your opponent will fly diagonally upward.  This gun is great for 
getting at foes behind walls.

------------------------|-------------------------|
Crevice Court           |Crevice Court            |
===================================================

The Chief isn't playing around anymore.  He has a bunch of X weapons, so 
you'd better be ready to be blown left and right.  The Phoenix gun only makes 
matters worse for you.  Mira is using the Sol and Gravity, which can be 
devastating, and eventually racks up a lot of damage.  You'll have to get rid 
of Mira first, as it takes a longer time to defeat Chief.  When Mira's out, 
it will be a 2-on-1 match, and by that time, Metal Ox will have been hurt a 
bit.  From that point, it'll be easy.

You won't have time to get the new part, but get it whenever you can.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Sol

The Sol is an Aerial Beauty model.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, the Chief and Mira will comment on your skills.  Linda will 
then comment on you as well.  Chief will then tell you about the Class 
Licenses.  You can first receive the Class-C License if you defeat all 
tournaments.  You can then get the Class-B License if you have gotten all the 
Bronze Trophies.  Getting all the Silver Trophies and you will receive the 
Class-A License.  If you get all the Gold Trophies, you will be awarded with 
the Class-S License.  After that, Linda will tell you that Mira has a 
memory-erasing device ready.  The Custom Robo Research Lab experimented on 
it, and made a copy for them.  A memory-erasing device can do a lot of good.  
They'll tell you that not all criminals are rehabilitated, so they use it on 
the criminals who are not.  This way, they can start over.

All Z Syndicate members have had their memories erased already, so that shows 
progress, as Linda indicates.  To express his gratitude, the Chief thanks you.  
Chief will tell you to go to the Examination Room.  If you already have, go 
to the Police outside for instructions.  Don't forget to go back if you need 
another trophy.  

The game will now automatically save for you.

Before you start, you might want to check the Parts Generator for the part 
you weren't able to get last time.  After that, get ready to fight your

=========================

Pod: Double Wave        |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

This computer will be a little more difficult to take down.  The Buggy is a 
Trick Flyer model, so be sure to avoid it as much as possible, as its air 
game is pretty good.  The Flare gun has appeared once again, but don't let 
that get to you.  Its range is medium, so if you stay far enough, he won't 
be able to get you.  The Burrow D isn't too much to worry about.  The Double 
Wave could be avoided as well.  The Short Thrust legs will hurt the Buggy's 
abilities, so use this to your advantage.  Because he's no longer good in 
the air, fire at him from above, and this match will be rather easy.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Dour Head

The Dour Head is a Funky Big Head model.  It's good at dodging attacks in the 
air.  It also has a great defense, but it is rather slow.  It's a good body, 
but kind of strange-looking if you look at it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is another computer.

Pod: Caboose X          |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Diamond Cell            |
=========================

This match will still be a little diffiult, but it's not as hard as your 
previous match.  The Buggy is using the Glider, which fires two large 
rounds.  The Glider has a good Homing ability, so be sure to watch out for 
that.  The two X's next the Bomb and Pod names indicate the Explosion model, 
which will get you into the air, and open for attacks.  Be careful.  Rather 
than the Short Thrust, the computer is using the Long Thrust, so hitting it 
will be more difficult.  However, with the Flare no longer in the game, this 
match should be a breeze.

When you're done, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Delta

The Delta will trap the target with three bombs to the left, right, and 
front.  When it hits, it blows the target sideways.  It's good to bring your 
opponent out of hiding.

------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

This computer is using the Peregrine.  Armed with the Sniper, it will be a 
rough match from beginning to end.  The Spider G will be crawling on the 
ground, so avoid that at all costs, as you don't want to fall victim to a 
powerful round.  The Crescent K shouldn't be too much of a problem.  Because 
of the Ground legs, the Peregrine will be left without too much of an air 
ability.  If you're able to corner Peregrine with a good bomb or pod, there 
will be no escape.  Finish it off that way, and the match will be easier than 
it would have been.  

The game will now automatically save for you.

When he's out, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Titan

The Titan gun fires an extremely large shot.  Though this sounds good, it 
fires a single shot at a time.  Its Attack is not that great, and neither is 
its Speed or Homing stats.  The DWN is the only good stat.  Would not 
recommend using this part.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next match will be a computer, Melvin.

=========================
Melvin                  |
========================|
Body: Javelin           |
Gun: Afterburner        |
Bomb: Delta             |
Pod: Dolphin            |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

Melvin is using the Javelin with the Afterburner, and that can be a real 
pain to avoid.  The Delta bomb will make it a whole lot harder.  The Dolphin 
will be roaming at the bottom, and the Quick Jump will allow Javelin to move 
at a greater speed.  This is probably why the computer was given an actual 
name.  Keep your distance, and remember to move.  If you don't you'll surely 
be cornered by a bomb or pod, and open for an Afterburner round.  If you're 
hit in a certain way, you'll be drawn out of hiding, so it's best not to 
take any chances.  Keep firing, and you'll win.

After this match, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Titan

The Titan bomb will fire a bomb that slowly arcs, then explodes on the 
field.  The explosion is rather large, so avoiding it will be more difficult 
than others.  Good for surprise combos.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent will be a computer, Max.

=========================
Max                     |
========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |
Gun: Rayfall            |
Bomb: Geo Trap          |
Pod: Standard F         |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
High-Rise Cell          |
=========================

Another computer given a name.  The Metal Bear is using the Rayfall gun, 
which will definitely cause some problems for you.  The Geo Trap will be used 
in a lot of combos, so avoiding it won't be a bad idea either.  Hiding behind 
walls will prove useless, as the bomb and pod are able to get around there 
easily.  Not only that, but the Metal Bear has the Booster legs.  Try to get 
the Metal Bear after he fires his gun.  Since its Rapid Fire ability is 
rather low, it's open after it fires its rounds.  Take it out with a wide 
range of combos, and you should do fine against Max.

After the match, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Titan

The Titan Pod doesn't move very fast, but when it explodes, the Blast Radius 
is unusually large.  The duration of the blast is also rather good, so it 
will take up a large part of the stage for awhile.  It's good for keeping 
your opponent distracted.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your final opponent is another computer, Marv.  

=========================
Marv                    |
========================|
Body: Dour Head         |
Gun: Titan              |
Bomb: Titan             |
Pod: Titan              |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

Marv is using the Dour Head, along with the High Jump legs, and the three 
Titan parts you picked up during the Computer Battle.  Surprisingly, this 
match is extremely easy.  Avoiding the shots could be a problem, but they 
don't do a lot of damage.  Know where the bomb and pod are going to explode, 
and you can avoid getting trapped.  Fire at the Dour Head with powerful 
rounds.  If he's moving, stop him with a bomb or pod.  You'll win this match 
easily.  

After the match, you won't have access to the new part, but get it when you 
can.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Rayfall

The Rayfall will fire four homing rounds vertically.  If fired from the 
ground, the rounds will pause in midair.  If fired from the air, the rounds 
will not pause.  Use it in good strategies.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you've beaten Marv, he will suffer a malfunction.  You've still cleared 
the tournament.  The Police will ask you if you participated in the Tag 
Battle Tournament.  If you haven't, that's where you're going.  He'll thank 
you for participating, then will remind you that you can participate any 
time you want to.

The game will now automatically save for you.

=============================================================================

Walk into the Training Gym.  Marcia will be there as your guide.  She'll ask 
about your battles, then talk about the increase in robo battles.  She'll 
tell you that she's your guide.  A lot of the competitors there are amateurs, 
so she thinks you'll do very well.  The Tag Battle Rules are in effect.  This 
means that you will use two robos, rather than one, against two other robos.  
You're able to switch robos during the match, so it's still 1-on-1.  If one 
robo loses energy, you lose.  To switch between robos, press the Y Button.  
Marcia will remind you that once you swap robos, you can't swap again for 
7 seconds.  Also, if your inactive robo has less than 150 hit points, it 
will increase to 150 in 10 seconds.  This way, you can still make a 
comeback, even if your robo is low in HP.

Your first opponent is a boy.

=========================--------------------------
Boy                     |Boy                      |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Seal Head         |Body: Peregrine          |
Gun: Right 5-Way        |Gun: Shotgun             |
Bomb: Submarine P       |Bomb: Standard           |
Pod: Throwing P         |Pod: Feint F             |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
=========================--------------------------

The boy starts off with a Seal Head using a Right 5-Way.  The Submarine 
should be avoided, as well as the Throwing P.  Because the Seal Head is using 
the Wide Jump legs, it'll be hard to get away from him.  Try to get away from 
the Right 5-Way gun by constantly moving away, and using Slide Shots to get 
the Seal Head by surprise.  Eventually, the boy will make a complete turn 
around, and change to the Peregrine with the Shotgun.  Rather than being 
slow on the ground, the Peregrine is fast, and with the Stabilizer legs, it 
could cause trouble.  Try your best to keep your distance; the Shotgun is an 
instant knockdown for you.  The Standard shouldn't be worried about too 
much.  As long as you take down one of them, you'll win.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Peregrine

The Peregrine is a Little Raider model.  It has a slightly greater Speed and 
Attack stat than the other two Little Raiders, but its Defense stat has gone 
down a lot.  It's an effective model against foes such as Funky Big Head and 
Metal Grappler models.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a girl.  

=========================--------------------------
Girl                    |Girl                     |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Earth             |Body: Swift              |
Gun: Flame              |Gun: Afterburner         |
Bomb: Gemini P          |Bomb: Tomahawk B         |

------------------------|-------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |High-Rise Plaza          |
=========================--------------------------

The first robo sent out is the Earth with the Flame.  The Flame is going to 
be hard to avoid, so just do your best.  On top of that, the Speed P will 
be running around the place, so jump constantly to avoid it.  The Feather 
legs will increase the Earth's air game.  Try stopping it with a Pod, then 
fire at it with your gun.  Eventually, the girl will switch to the Swift, 
which is holding the Afterburner.  The Cockroach is slow on the ground, so 
you don't have to jump as much.  The Afterburner will try to trick you by 
coming at you slowly, then increasing in speed.  Don't fall for that.  
Because of their speed, both robos will be hard to hit.  It may get 
frustrating at first, but eventually, you'll get the hang of it.  

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Cockroach G

The Cockroach G moves very slowly until you get close.  It will then increase 
in speed, and explode on its target.  When hit, the target will move upward.  
Effective against foes behind cover.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Don.  

=========================--------------------------
Don                     |Don                      |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Shrike            |Body: Dour Head          |
Gun: Stun               |Gun: V Laser             |
Bomb: Standard K        |Bomb: Straight S         |
Pod: Seeker F           |Pod: Speed D             |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
=========================--------------------------

Don will start out with his usual favorite; Shrike.  The Shrike is holding 
the Stun gun, and because of its great speed, he'll be a real pain.  The 
Standard K and Seeker shouldn't be a problem as long as you're not standing 
in the same spot for too long.  The Stabilizer legs will increase the speed 
of the Shrike, making him a bigger problem.  Attack him with a long range 
or medium range gun to keep him away from you.  After being hurt a bit, 
Don will switch to the Dour Head, which will be a lot easier for you to 
hit.  The Wide Jump will allow him to move quickly across the field in the 
air, but if you attack him on the ground, it's likely that he won't dodge 
it.  The V Laser won't be a problem either because it won't do anything if 
you're standing there.  Try taking out the Dour Head because of its 
vulnerability.  You'll win easily.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

When you're done, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: V Laser

The V Laser fires two round that move in a V-shape, hitting any moving 
target.  In the air, the rounds will move straight.  It is effective for 
confusing your target.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Sophie.  

=========================--------------------------
Sophie                  |Sophie                   |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Sol               |Body: Earth              |
Gun: Sword Storm        |Gun: Homing Star         |
Bomb: Gemini B          |Bomb: Burrow P           |
Pod: Wall               |Pod: Standard F          |
Legs: Booster           |Legs: High Jump          |
------------------------|-------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |High-Rise Plaza          |
=========================--------------------------

Sophie will first bring out the Sol with the Sword Storm.  The Sword Storm 
will be able to get you from anywhere, as it will pause in midair before 
striking its target.  The Gemini B and Wall should be kept under control, as 
they're rather sneaky in this match.  The Booster legs will increase the 
Sol's dash speed, so it will be effective in the air.  Hit it as much as 
possible when it lands on the ground.  Sophie's second robo is the Earth with 
the Homing Star.  As you've learned from Marcia, the Homing Star is a deadly 
weapon, so avoid it at all costs.  The High Jump will improve the Earth's 
air game.  The Burrow P and Standard F shouldn't be too much of a problem.  
Watch for them just in case.  Take out either of them, as they're both the 
same model.  You'll win.  

When you win, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Gemini B

The Gemini B launches bombs to the sides of your foe on the ground.  In the 
air, it will fire bombs to the front and back of your foe.  The blasts will 
linger for awhile.  When hit, the target will move sideways.  Effective for 
bringing foes out from cover.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your final opponent is Trish.  

=========================--------------------------
Trish                   |Trish                    |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Swift             |Body: Seeker             |
Gun: Twin Fang          |Gun: Needle              |
Bomb: Burrow P          |Bomb: Tomahawk G         |
Pod: Beast F            |Pod: Satellite           |
Legs: Short Thrust      |Legs: Long Thrust        |
------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
=========================--------------------------

Trish will start out with the Swift and the Twin Fang.  The Short Thrust will 
make the Swift rely on ground play, so fire at it from the air to get it at 
the best angles.  The Burrow P shouldn't be too much of a problem.  The Beast 
F will surely get you if you move too close to it.  Try to get close to the 
Swift, as the Twin Fang will move right over you if you're too close.  
Keeping your distance is also effective.  Trish will switch to the Seeker, 
which is using the Needle gun.  The Needle should be pretty easy to avoid 
with a fast robo.  The Tomahawk G will prove to be effective in a stage such 
as Diamond Fences, so watch out for it.  The Satellite shouldn't be too much 
of a problem.  The Long Thrust legs will keep the Seeker in good shape when 
in the air.  Just like the Swift, the Seeker will also be difficult to avoid 
and attack.  Do your best against it.  Because of their low Defense stats, 
this match should be rather easy.  

You won't have time to pick up the new part, but go to a Parts Generator 
whenever you can.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Twin Fang

The Twin Fang will fire quick rounds.  On the ground, the rounds will fly 
up, then descend on the foe.  In the air, the rounds move straight.  Try to 
get close when attacking with this gun due to its short range.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, Marcia will give you a tip on the temporary invincibility 
during a Tag Battle match.  You'll complain about her not telling you before 
the matches.  She'll tell you she did it because they were amateurs.  Marcia 
will mention that you can now go to the Lab Single Battle, held at the 
Research Lab.  Check that out.  

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you enter the lab, a Lab Tech will tell you that there are three 
tournaments being held there.

Before you enter any, head into Lab 01, and go to the south-eastern corner, 
if you scan it, you'll find the Wave Lazer.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Wave Lazer /!\

The Wave Lazer fires short-range rounds capable of immobilizing your opponent 
for a long time.  It has great Speed and Rapid stats, but poor Attack, 
Homing, and Knockdown stats.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you head to the first door on your left, you'll enter the Lab Single 
Battle.

When inside the room, a Police will greet you.  He'll ask you if you 
recognize any of the people in the room.  To your horror, you'll see that 
the burglars you met on Day 1 are there.  The Police will tell you that they 
were to cause a distraction, while the Z Syndicate broke into the lab, in 
search of the memory-erasing device.  He'll tell you not to worry, as 
he explains that their memories have been erased.  The rules are No-Limit

Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

The burglar is using the Metal Ape, armed with the Claw.  Be careful; the 
Claw has an extremely good Homing ability, so avoiding it could be a bit 
difficult.  The Straight S and Seeker G are effective, especially in a stage 
like the Basic Arena.  The Short Thrust will keep the Metal Ape well hidden 
behind the walls, so be careful.  Fire at him with everything you've got, and 
stay out of the Claw's range.  After a well-fought match, the Burglar and his 
Metal Ape will fall.  

When you're done, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Straight S

The Straight S will fire a bomb quickly straight ahead.  If it hits, it will 
briefly immobilize the target, allowing the user to deal great damage on the 
foe.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a Lab Tech.  

=========================

Pod: Dolphin G          |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Crevice Court           |
=========================

The Lab Tech is using the Defender, armed with the Vertical gun.  Because the 
Defender is good in the air, it will be difficult to avoid it.  Don't be 
surprised if you're hit frequently with the Vertical.  The Submarine K will 
not be a problem as long as you are aware of where they are.  If they hit, 
you'll be in a bit of trouble.  The Dolphin G should be avoided at all costs, 
as it will be seen moving about the bottom of the holosseum.  The Feather 
legs will increase the Defender's air game, so watch out.  The Defender 
should be taken down easily with a powerful gun and bomb combination.  

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Dolphin G

The Dolphin G is capable of deploying two pods at a time.  When released, it 
begins to arc toward the opponent.  When it hits, it blows the target 
upward.  Great to stop foes hiding on the ground, or coming from the air.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a burglar.  

=========================

Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

The Burglar is using the Splendor, armed with the Trap.  The Trap, as you 
know, will be difficult to avoid, as it will delay when fired from the 
ground, and won't when fired from the air.  The Wall and Jumping B are easy 
to avoid.  Splendor will use the Trap gun a lot, so avoid that to defeat him 
with ease.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

When he's down, go to the Parts Generator again.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Starshot

The Starshot gun splits into five rounds when it ascends.  If fired from 
the ground, they split vertically.  From the air, they split horizontally.  
Spread your fire when using this gun.

Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Crevice Court           |
=========================

The Lab Tech is using the Metal Bear with the Halo.  The Halo will be quite 
a nuisance in this match.  The bomb and pod won't be used to much, so focus 
on avoiding the Halo.  Take every opportunity to hit your opponent.  
Otherwise, you'll fall to the Halo gun.  If you are able to dodge them, 
you'll win.  

After the match, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Metal Bear

The Metal Bear is a Metal Grappler model.  It is strong in both Attack and 
Defense stats, as well as its Down stat.  However, its poor Speed makes it 
hard to dodge attacks.

Your next opponent is a Police Squad member.

Pod: Jumping G          |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Ice and Snow            |
=========================

This match, in my opinion, was the easiest match in this tournament.  The 
Javelin will not attack with his gun very much.  He will use a lot of pods, 
but dodging them is quite simple.  Just fire at him with a powerful gun, and 
you'll do fine.  

When you've beaten him, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Left Arc

The Left Arc gun fires two rounds to the left that will curve to the right.  
The direction of fire will reverse when fired from the air.  Firing from 
both the ground and air is useful.

Pod: Standard F         |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Frozen Field            |
=========================

This burglar is also rather easy to defeat.  Though he's using the Drill, 
hitting you would be difficult on ice.  Just fire at him with powerful gun, 
and he'll go down as quickly as your previous opponent.  

Get this part after the tournament.

When you enter the room, Linda will tell you she thinks you've been working 
hard, and have become a great commander.  She will then talk about the 
Lab Handicap Battle.  You'll be fighting against two opponents, and without 
a partner.  Have fun with that.

Your first two opponents are two lab techs.  

===================================================
Lab Tech                |Lab Tech                 |
========================|=========================|
Body: Seal Head         |Body: Criminal           |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
===================================================

Your first opponents are weak.  They will hardly attack you with their guns.  
Firing at the Criminal first would be a good idea, as it will take a bit 
longer to take out the Seal Head.  Using a Lightning Sky or Little Raider 
in this match is extremely effective.  Just be careful of the Seal Head's 
Freeze bomb; you'll be open for an attack.  Other than that, you should be 
fine.  

When you've defeated them, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Claw

The Claw gun repeatedly fires shots which draw the opponent towards you when 
they hit.  When fired on the ground, the rounds ascend a little.  The rounds 
fly straight when fired from the air.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponents are a Lab Tech and Jin.  

===================================================
Lab Tech                |Jin                      |
========================|=========================|

------------------------|-------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |High-Rise Plaza          |
===================================================

The Criminal is using the Meteor Storm, which can hurt you badly if you don't 
avoid it.  Take out the Criminal first, as the Tank Head is using the Splash, 
which is often ineffective.  Once the Criminal is gone, the match should be 
rather easy.  

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Smash

The Smash bomb will explode above your head.  Though it only launches one 
bomb at a time, the Attack and Speed of the Smash will prove to be useful 
against your opponent.  When hit, the target will be blown diagonally 
upward.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponents are Jin and Katu.  

===================================================
Jin                     |Katu                     |
========================|=========================|

------------------------|-------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |Diamond Fences           |
===================================================

Jin is using the Tank Head and Rayfall.  The Left Wave shouldn't be too much 
of a problem, and neither will the Caboose C.  Katu has the Flare gun, so 
keep at a distance to avoid being hit.  I suggest taking out Katu first, as 
he poses a greater threat with the Spider G as well.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Spider G

The Spider G is similar to that of the Cockroach.  It remains in place when 
deployed, then homes in when a target approaches.  It is capable of deploying 
three pods at a time.  When hit, the target is blown upward.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponents are Katu and Sherry.  

===================================================
Katu                    |Sherry                   |
========================|=========================|
Body: Defender          |Body: Buggy              |
Gun: Glider             |Gun: Starshot            |
Bomb: Crescent K        |Bomb: Standard K         |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Basic Arena             |Basic Arena              |
===================================================

I decided to go for Sherry first.  The Buggy using a Starshot pose a threat 
to your health.  The Standard K will also instantly knock you down, so that 
should be taken out of the way.  Even with Sherry down, Katu is using the 
Crescent K, so taking him out quickly wouldn't be a bad idea, either.  Defeat 
them both to move to the final match.  

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Buggy

The Buggy is a Trick Flyer model.  It is a fairly balanced robo.  Very agile 
in the air, and extremely slow on the ground.  It is capable of performing 
three short air-dashes.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your final opponents are Sherry and Linda.  

===================================================
Sherry                  |Linda                    |
========================|=========================|
Body: Buggy             |Body: Seeker             |
Gun: Shotgun            |Gun: Hornet              |

Legs: Long Thrust       |Legs: Booster            |
------------------------|-------------------------|
Crevice Court           |Crevice Court            |
===================================================

Linda should definitely be taken out of this match first.  The Seeker is 
using the Hornet, and because it's a Lightning Sky model, they'll be coming 
at you from all directions.  When Linda's taken out, be sure to avoid the 
Boggy's Shotgun; being hit by it will cause an instant knockdown.  Defeat 
them, and claim your trophies!  

You won't be able to get this part yet, but check the Parts Generator when 
you can.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Hornet

The Hornet gun will fire five hornet-like rounds which home in on the 
target.  Trying to shoot from the air proves to be more effective than 
firing from the ground.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, Linda will remind you that there is still the Lab Bonus 
Battle to check out in the Lab.  Head out the door, and prepare for your next 
tournament!  

The game will now automatically save for you.

=============================================================================

When you enter the room, Evil greets you.  He won't remember a thing about 
attempting to join the Z Syndicate, so you just play along, though you think 
he's lying.  He'll tell you that the Lab Bonus Battle is a little break from 
the others, as it's a 2-on-1 match, with Evil as your partner.  Ironic, eh?

Magma Hole              |
=========================

A really simple match here.  Shoot the Glaive into the magma zone, and watch 
out for the Afterburner.  You'll be okay.  

When you win, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Glaive

The Glaive is a Strike Vanisher model.  It's slow on the ground, but it has 
the stealth function.  It's capable of air-dashing three times.  It has the 
best defense of the Strike Vanishers, so use it when you want it.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a Police.

------------------------|
Basic Cell              |
=========================

Yet another simple match.  The Phoenix will hit you a bit, so just dodge as 
best as you can.  Other than that, you should do fine in this match as well.  

When you win, go to the Parts Generator again.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Throwing P

The Throwing P travels in an arc.  It's able to deploy two pods at a time.  
When it explodes, the blast will linger.  It has an excellent Speed stat, but 
a poor Homing stat.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Lloyd.

------------------------|
Magma Hole              |
=========================

Lloyd shouldn't be too much of a problem.  The Trap gun will get annoying, 
and the Dolphin will get at you a bit, but just do your best to get rid of 
him.

The game will now automatically save for you.  

When you're done, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Burrow P

The Burrow P explodes after a short period of time when it descends.  Though 
it can only launch one bomb at a time, the blast will linger for awhile.  
When it hits, it blasts the target upward.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Bubble.  

=========================

========================|
Body: Juggler           |

------------------------|
Dead Line               |
=========================

Bubble will be a bit more difficult than your previous opponents.  He uses 
the Metal Ox, and with the Sword Storm, he's a force to be reckoned with.  
The Standard K is an instant knockdown.  Though he causes a bit of problems, 
he doesn't stand a chance against two opponents.  

When you're done, go to the Parts Generator for new parts.  

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

The Glider fires two large rounds that fly straight on the ground, and one

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

Part: Gun
Name: Eagle

The Eagle fires a quick, straight round.  On the ground, they won't pause.  
In the air, they will delay.  Use both the ground and air when firing.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, Evil will tell you to check out the other two rooms if you 
haven't already.  If you have, head to Hub Park.

Rather simple match.  The Gatling may be a problem, but stay at a distance, 
as its accuracy is less effective then.  Use this match as a warm-up to what 
is up ahead.

Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Flower Garden           |
=========================

The Buggy will be a bit more difficult to knock down that your previous 
opponent.  The Wall may also cause a bit of difficulty.  You've been through 
this before, though.  Take our Sherry with a powerful gun, and be sure to 
stay at a distance.  

When you win, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

=========================

Yet another person with a Gatling gun.  The Feather will increase its air 
game, so be sure to keep the sky heavily guarded.  The Crescent K also will 
knock you down if it hits, so avoid that.  You'll win easily.  

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you win, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

===================================================

The Metal Ape and Tank head have excellent defense.  However, they're slow, 
therefore are vulnerable for attacks.  Use a bomb to stop them, then fire 
at them with your gun to take them down.  Be sure to keep Ernest safe; you 
don't want him to fall.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

The Breaker should be taken down first in this match.  When he's out, the

they hurt you a lot if they hit.

===================================================

Evil has a poorly-balanced robo.  Take him out first, so the Gatling's out 
of the way.  When it's Bogey, avoid the Left 5-Way, and take him out to win 
the tournament.

Pick up this part when you leave.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

The Juggler is a Trick Flyer model.  Has the greatest attack of all Trick

Diamond Fences          |
=========================

The Defender is easy to knock down with a powerful gun.  The Bubble will 
disappear if you attack it fast enough, so keep that in mind.  Avoid being 
hit by the Delta, and keep an eye out for the Defender to win.

When you win, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Double Wave

The Double Wave fires pods to the left and right, which emit blasts capable 
of reaching through walls.  When it hits, it blows the target diagonally up.

------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

The Sniper can wipe out a robo with a single hit, so try to avoid it as much 
as you possibly can.  The Submarine K and Seeker are slow, and easy to 
avoid.  Just take it out to advance.

Your next opponent is a computer.

=========================

Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Diamond Fences          |
=========================

The Glider will be a bit more difficult to avoid in this match.  Flying would 
be useless because the Float F is up there.  As long as you fire at the Seal 
Head at every opportunity, you can come out with hardly any damage.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When that computer's out of the way, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

The Crescent K flies in a Crescent when fired.  If it hits, the opponent is 
instantly knocked down.

------------------------|
High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

This match is the easiest of the six.  The Splash will hardly do anything 
with the Seeker flying around.  Use a robo with a good Defense stat, and fire 
at the Seeker with any gun to win.

When the computer's out, don't leave it alone.  Continuously bother it by 
pressing the A button until it gives you a new part.

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

The Crystal Strike fires large rounds continuously.  The range changes when 
fired from the ground or air.  It's a great spam gun.

The Jumping G approaches the target from the front, then flies over and

=========================

The Breaker is easy to knock down, so try and get it before the Flare hits 
you.  Also, you should watch out for the Wave; it hurts.  You should be fine 
throughout the match.

When you win, go to the Parts Generator.

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

The Caboose X flies in the opposite direction of where you aim.  It deploys

High-Rise Plaza         |
=========================

The Freeze will be a minor setback in this match.  As long as you don't stay 
in the same spot, you won't get hit too much.  Just fire at the Dour Head 
with a powerful gun to win the tournament.

Retrieve this part later.

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

The Tank Head is a Funky Big Head model.  It has the best Sky and Attack

Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Basic Arena             |
=========================

Hiroko is using the Defender.  It's easy to knock down, but watch out for the 
Rayfall gun.  The Gemini P and the Wall don't have to be avoided too much.  
Just focus on hitting the Defender, as it will be flying around all over the 
place.  If you avoid it enough, you could score a perfect in this match.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Satellite H

The Satellite H hangs in the air when deployed, then homes in on your 
opponent when approaching.  It is capable of firing three pods at a time.  
When it hits, it blows the target sideways.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Jerry.

=========================
Jerry                   |

Pod: Spider G           |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Ice and Snow            |
=========================

Another simple match.  The Vertical won't be too much of a problem, and the 
Right Wave and Spider G are easy to avoid.  The Long Thrust will allow the 
Javelin to move all over the holosseum, so keeping track of him is kind of 
difficult.  Take out the Javelin with the parts you chose.  As long as you 
chose parts that you've already used a couple times, you should win this 
match pretty easily.

Your next opponent is Marcia.

=========================
Marcia                  |
========================|
Body: Milky Way         |
Gun: Homing Star        |

Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: Wide Jump         |
------------------------|
L Formation             |
=========================

Marcia is harder than your other opponents.  The Homing Star could cause you 
a lot of grief.  If you take her out with a good gun, she'll go down a lot 
easier.  Avoid the Homing Star, and keep behind the walls.  The Crescent C 
will be able to get you from behind walls, though, so try using slide shots 
to get the upper hand.  The Wide Jump will allow Marcia to travel great 
distances, and get to you quickly.  If she does, fire at her with a bomb or 
pod, and finish her off with a powerful round from your gun.

The game will now automatically save for you.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Dual

The dual bomb is capable of exploding twice.  It can also blasts both in 
front of and behind the foe.  It is only able to launch one bomb at a time.  
Great to use to avoid foes.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Roy.

=========================
Roy                     |
========================|
Body: Halberd           |

Bomb: Standard S        |
Pod: Cockroach H        |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Ice and Snow            |
=========================

Roy isn't using the Magnum.  Instead, he chose the Needle, which isn't very 
good on the ice.  The Standard S is just as easy to dodge as most of the 
other Standard weapons.  You should watch out for the Cockroach H; getting 
hit by that would be kind of ugly.  The Short Thrust will keep Halberd from 
getting to close to you, so you won't be able to get him, while he can still 
get you.  Defeating him should be easy when he doesn't have the Magnum.  Take 
him out easy to progress.

When you win, go to the Parts Generator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Seeker

The Seeker is a Lightning Sky model.  It has the best Defense stat of the 
Lightning Sky models, but it has the poorest Sky stat.  It can attack and 
change direction in the middle of an air-dash.  It performs a single long 
air dash.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Harry.

=========================

Pod: Caboose T          |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Checkmate Foundry       |
=========================

Harry is using the Glory with the Right Arc.  The Right Arc, as you already 
know, fires rounds from the right that eventually will curve in an arc.  The 
Standard K will instantly knock you down if you're hit, so be sure to avoid 
that as much as you possibly can.  If you take him down with a bomb or pod, 
you can fire at him, and eventually win.

When you've won, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Breaker

The Breaker is a Lightning Sky model.  It has the best Sky ability of all the 
Lightning Sky models.  However, it has the poorest Defense stat.  It is 
able to attack and change direction during an air-dash.  It will only perform 
one long air-dash.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pod: Twin Flank F       |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
Checkmate Foundry       |
=========================

Mira is using her usual Sol and Ion combination.  She's really hard to get 
at because of her great speed.  The Sol is, after all, and Aerial Beauty.  
THe Burrow P will be a bit difficult to avoid, but try your best.  You don't 
have to worry too much about the Twin Flank F.  The Booster will increase 
the Sol's speed, so it'll be a bit harder to hit.  Try your best to clear 
the tournament.

When you've won, you're able to pick up this part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Gravity

The Gravity gun will fire rounds that eventually grow large, thus becoming 
immobile.  On the ground, the rounds move straight ahead.  In the air, the 
rounds ascend diagonally.  It has great Attack and Knockdown Power, as well 
as being able to be fired quickly, but its Homing ability is poor.

After the match, you'll be able to leave.

holosseum.  Avoid the Twin Flank G and the Wave bomb.  Come at him with a 
bomb or pod, then fire at him with a powerful round from your gun when he's 
down.  You'll win your first match.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Sudden Death

The Sudden Death is the smallest holosseum you'll find.  It is a great place 
to use short-ranged weapons.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Kusun.

=========================
Kusun                   |
========================|
Body: Swift             |
Gun: Halo               |
Bomb: Standard K        |
Pod: Diving             |
Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Impact Craters          |
=========================

Kusun is using the Swift and Halo gun.  This spells trouble.  The Impact 
Craters will keep you at a distance, so use that time to avoid the Halo 
rounds as much as you possibly can.  The Standard K will be an instant 
knockdown if it hits you, and the Diving pod will be lurking around the 
bottom of the stage.  The Quick Jump will increase the Swift's speed.  Try 
firing at the Swift with a bomb when you're separated, then shoot with your 
gun to finish her off.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Impact Craters

The Impact Craters is a holosseum based off of a ruined region.  Over time, 
the ground will split into several sections.  It's a great place for long 
ranged game.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When she's out, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Halo

The Halo gun fires a large homing round.  When fired on the ground, it slowly 
ascends, then chases the target.  When fired from the air, the round will 
stop in front of you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Hamada.

=========================
Hamada                  |
========================|
Body: Metal Ape         |

Pod: Wall               |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Gigantix Sprawl         |
=========================

Hamada is using the Metal Ape with the Glider.  Because of the Glider's 
range, it will be difficult to get up close to the Metal Ape.  The Gemini 
B will be fired often, and the Wall gun will do a lot of damage if it hits 
you.  Trying to fight behind a wall would be useless, as the Metal Ape is 
using the High Jump.  Because the stage is so large, try fighting the Metal 
Ape from a distance.  You should with with hardly a scratch.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Gigantix Sprawl

The Gigantix Sprawl is is the largest stage of all the holosseums.  It is 
recommended to figure out your optimal distance and fight from afar.

Your next opponent is Puniyo.

=========================

Pod: Beast F            |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Loading Dock            |
=========================

Puniyo is using the Earth, and the Meteor Storm.  The Meteor Storm is a very 
powerful gun, so be sure to watch out for it.  The Tomahawk G will be used 
pretty often, so using a fast robo would prove to be effective in this 
match.  The Beast F is easy to avoid as long as you're nowhere near it.  The 
Feather will increase the air game of the Earth, leaving it vulnerable if 
it hovers above you.  Fire a bomb to stop it, then use your gun to take it 
down.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Loading Dock

The Loading Dock is a stage with a large suspended platform.  It's always 
moving, so getting on it could cause a lot of problems.  Be careful.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Tomahawk G

The Tomahawk G travels in a high arc.  It is only capable of launching one 
bomb at a time.  When it hits, it blasts the target upward.  It's great to 
use on opponents in the air.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your final opponent is your guide, Loa.

=========================
Loa                     |
========================|
Body: Splendor          |

Pod: Caboose X          |
Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
Battle Gear Station     |
=========================

Loa is using the Splendor, armed with the Phoenix gun.  The Phoenix has a 
good range, so try not to get hit by it.  The Straight G shouldn't be too 
much of a problem.  Hiding behind the walls would be useless, as the Caboose 
X will blast you out of there.  Splendor will dodge a lot of your shots, so 
shooting him will also be a problem.  Just do your best, and you'll win the 
final match in the Real World.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW HOLOSSEUM

Name: Battle Gear Station

The Battle Gear Station is a cog-wheel themed holosseum.  The platforms on 
the spinning cogwheels is a great advantage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Be sure to pick up this part on your way out.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Phoenix

The Phoenix gun fires quick, large rounds.  When fired on the ground, the 
rounds shoot up and down.  In the air, the rounds will fly straight.  Its 
range is long.  Good for preventing your foe from using air game.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, Loa will say that work is good, as he enjoys battling in 
his holosseum.  He's confident it will sell.  He'll tell you that you're 
done, as the test is complete.  He sees why you're the champion.  Loa offers 
you the job as a tester in their company, but you refuse, as you already 
have a job.  Go back when you want to.

The Oil Can is a Shining Fighter model with a lower Defense.  It is the 
weakest of all the robos.  It has an excellent Attack stat, yet all its 
other stats are rather poor.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Can (C)

This gun is the weakest gun of all of them.  It is a weaker version of the 
Basic gun.  The Can fires three rounds in a straight line.  The rounds 
become smaller after leaving the gun.  Aerial and ground attacks are the 
same.  The range is short.  It has poor stats.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Can (C)

The Can is the weakest of all bombs.  It is the Standard bomb, but it less 
firepower and a weaker blast strength.  It launches one bomb at a time.  
When it hits, it blows the target diagonally upward.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Can (C)

The Can is the weakest of all pods.  It is the Standard bomb, with a very 
weak firepower and a smaller blast radius.  It is capable of deploying three 
pods at a time.  When it hits, it blows the target diagonally upward.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When inside, you'll discover that Eliza is your partner.  Her memory's been 
erased like the other criminals, so she won't remember a thing.  It's a

------------------------|
Dead Line               |
=========================

These matches are always easy.  However, I'll give you tips on how to receive 
minimum damage.  The Glaive is using the Vertical, a gun with a long range.  
Because the Deal Line has so many walls, avoiding them shouldn't be a problem 
for you.  The Submarine P is too slow to catch up to you.  The Wave bomb is 
capable of reaching past walls, so hiding in one spot wouldn't be such a 
great idea.  Play around with him a little, maybe knocking him into the magma 
zone here and there.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.

------------------------|
Dead Line               |
=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Tank Head, armed with the Dragon.  Because the 
Dragon has a long range, it may get at you here and there.  However, 
because of the walls, you won't get hit as often.  The Freeze pod should 
be looked for when battling.  You never know when it will come out of 
hiding, and strike you.  This match shouldn't be too hard.

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.

------------------------|
Sudden Death            |
=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Earth and the Meteor Storm.  From past 
experiences, you know that the Meteor Storm can be harmful if it strikes 
you.  The best thing to do in this match is keep moving.  The stage is 
very small, so even the Submarine P and Throwing D will take a few whacks 
at you.  The High Jump will also enable the Earth to get at you from 
behind walls, so ducking isn't a good idea, either.  Just move around to 
avoid being damaged, and fire at the Z Lackey to progress to the next 
match.

The game will now automatically save for you.

=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Splendor with the Phoenix.  The Phoenix gun has a 
long range, so staying as far away as possible won't do any good, either.  
The Trio H will deploy three pods, so try and stay far away from your 
opponent.  Since the match is a 2-on-1, this match will be a lot easier than 
it would have been 1-on-1.

Your final opponent is a Z Lackey.

------------------------|
Battle Gear Station     |
=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Metal Bear with the Rayfall.  Unlike your previous 
opponents, this Z Lackey is using a robo that is difficult to knock down.  
The Rayfall will prove to be effective in this match because of this.  The 
Delta bomb will be getting at you here and there, and the Wave will prevent 
you from hiding.  On top of it all, the Long Thrust has increased the Metal 
Bear's air-dash ability.  Try your best to get it down as fast as possible 
to get the highest score possible, and win Eliza's Room.

After the match, Eliza will tell you that you have successfully completed 
Eliza's Room.  Now, you are able to check out the remaining three 
tournaments; Training With Shiner, Isabella's Mansion, and Playing with 
Oboro.  Remember to enter Eliza's Room again if you're missing a few 
trophies.  Before you go, Eliza will tell you that if you complete all four 
of the tournaments, you'll be able to participate in a new one.  Better get

Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Little Locomotive       |
=========================

Your first opponent is using a Metal Ox, armed with a Drill gun.  Don't get 
too close to the Metal Ox.  It is difficult to knock him down, and if you 
get close to him, he'll fire at you with the Drill.  The Dual bomb will get 
at you from a distance, so try to stay as far as possible to receive minimal 
damage.  The Feint F will be following you, so it's a good idea to move 
around a lot.  The High Jump increases the Metal Ox's jumping height, 
allowing him to get at you from behind walls.  Your best bet is to hide 
behind the train, and shoot at him whenever you have the chance.  You should 
win fairly easily.

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.

=========================
Z Lackey                |

Pod: Umbrella           |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Battle Gear Station     |
=========================

The Z Lackey has chosen the wrong parts to use in a place like the Battle 
Gear Station.  The V Laser will prove to be ineffective when there are so 
many walls.  Don't jump around too much in this stage.  It's good to use 
the Quick Jump, Short Thrust, or the Ground legs in this stage.  The 
Umbrella will easily get you if you go too far up.  The Wall bomb will take 
a few of your HP, but don't let that slow you down.  Take out the Metal Bear 
to advance.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.

Legs: Booster           |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Metal Bear, armed with the Halo.  This Metal Bear 
will be a lot tougher than the one before.  He will continuously spam you 
with his gun, so use a quick robo to avoid the rounds,  The Burrow P won't 
be used too much, and neither will the Trio H, though it would be a good 
idea to keep your distance.  The Booster will increase the Metal Bear's 
ground speed, allowing him to get wherever he wants to go.  Don't let him 
do so.  Fire at him as much as possible with your gun to neutralize his 
rounds, and advance to the fourth match.

The game will now automatically save for you.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.

Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Loading Dock            |
=========================

The Z Lackey is using the Glaive, armed with the Needle.  Because the Glaive 
is a Strike Vanisher, it's rather easy for him to avoid your shots.  The 
Needle will be coming at you from different directions, so staying in one 
spot wouldn't be the best idea.  The TOmahawk G is rather useful in this 
stage, as is the Satellite.  Use a quick robo, or a robo with a good jumping 
ability to clear these obstacles.  The Quick Jump will increase the Glaive's 
jumping speed, making it even easier for him to dodge your shots.  Stop him 
with a bomb or pod, then fire at him while he's immobilized.  He's a bit 
more difficult than your other opponents, but you can pull it off.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.

Pod: Throwing P         |
Legs: Short Thrust      |
------------------------|
Merry-Go-Round          |
=========================

It's another Glaive.  This one should be easier, though, because it is using 
the Splash, which hardly does any damage.  However, he will spam with it a 
whole lot, so try to use a long-range gun, and keep at a distance.  The 
Submarine D is rather easy to dodge, and the Throwing P will tend to hit the 
Merry-Go-Round more than it will hit you.  The Short Thrust will also keep 
the Glaive closer to the ground, so hit him with a bunch of pods, and finish 
him off with a round from your gun.  

Your final opponent is Shiner.

Legs: Feather          []
----------------------[O]
Merry-Go-Round         []
======================[O]

Shiner is using the Breaker and the Ion.  Because the Breaker is a Lightning 
Sky model, the Ion gun will be moving all around the place.  You'll get 
downed a lot by this, but the Breaker is easily stopped with a pod.  Stop 
him in his tracks, and fire at him when he's stopped.  THe Gemini P is an 
effective force in this match, as is the Diving pod.  Being stopped by these 
is not an option.  The Feather will allow the Breaker to stay in the air a 
bit longer, so just be patient, and fire at him when he lands to complete the 
tournament.  

After the match, Shiner will comment you by saying "You look weak, but you're 
not too shabby."  He'll say his job is done.  Before you go, Shiner will tell 
you to participate in the other tournaments there.  He'll also tell you that 
if you complete all of the tournaments, another one will open for you.  Talk 
to Oboro when you do so.  Keep in mind that you can stop by Training With 
Shiner if you need some more trophies.

Your first opponent is a Z Lackey.  

=========================--------------------------
Z Lackey                |Z Lackey                 |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Glaive            |Body: Metal Ox           |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Magma Hole              |Magma Hole               |
=========================--------------------------

The Z Lackey is using the Glaive with the 3-Way, and the Metal Ox with the 
Sword Storm.  Both can be a bit of trouble with the parts they're using.  The 
Glaive will be moving around quite a bit due to the fact that it's a Strike 
Vanisher.  The Standard F is pretty easy to dodge, so that doesn't do too 
much.  When the Z Lackey switches off to the Metal Ox, things don't get any 
easier.  The Metal Ox is difficult to knock down.  On top of that, the Sword 
Storm is going to be difficult to dodge.  You shouldn't have a problem with 
this match.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.  

=========================--------------------------
Z Lackey                |Z Lackey                 |
========================|-------------------------|

------------------------|-------------------------|
Magma Ruins             |Magma Ruins              |
=========================--------------------------

The Z Lackey is using the Criminal with the Flame gun, and the Dour Head with 
the Bubble.  The Criminal and the Flame isn't quite a good combination.  
Though the Flame is a good gun to use, the Trick Flyer model doesn't work 
well with it.  The Straight T is easy to avoid, and the Spider is not too 
much of a problem in a holosseum like this.  The Dour Head is pretty easy as 
well.  Fire at it quickly to get rid of the Bubble rounds, then finish it off 
in the magma around you.  This match should be a breeze.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.  

=========================--------------------------
Z Lackey                |Z Lackey                 |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Sudden Death            |Sudden Death             |
=========================--------------------------

This Z Lackey is using the Earth with the Drill, and the Swift with the 
Stun.  If I were you, I'd watch out for those guns.  The Drill will hit you 
100% of the time if even one bullet hits you.  The Stun is a good gun to 
spam with, so avoiding that could indeed be a problem.  The Straight S on the 
Swift should be easy to dodge; the Freeze could be a problem.  The pods are 
fairly slow, and the leg parts will increase their jump distance and 
acceleration, in that order.  Finishing them off in a stage as small as this 
should be easy.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

Your next opponent is a Z Lackey.  

=========================--------------------------
Z Lackey                |Z Lackey                 |
========================|-------------------------|

------------------------|-------------------------|
Impact Craters          |Impact Craters           |
=========================--------------------------

The Z Lackey is using the Sol with the Left 5-Way, and the Seeker with the 
Eagle.  The guns are effective against you in this match due to their great 
range.  The Right Flank H and the Double Mine bombs should be rather easy 
to dodge.  The Reflection could be a major problem in this match, as well as 
the Twin Flank G.  The Feather will increase the Sol's air game, and the High 
Jump will allow the Seeker to glide for a longer time.  Time your attacks, 
and take them out.  

Your next opponent is Evil.  

=========================--------------------------
Evil                    |Evil                     |
========================|-------------------------|
Body: Juggler           |Body: Breaker            |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Gigantix Sprawl         |Gigantix Sprawl          |
=========================--------------------------

Evil is using the Juggler with the Hornet, and Breaker with the Homing Star.  
The Juggler is the worst of the Trick Flyers, so taking him down wouldn't be 
too much of a problem.  The Breaker is a lot more difficult.  It is using the 
Homing Star, and as you know from past experience, it's a powerful gun.  Try 
taking out the Juggler, as it's easier to do so.  It's your choice.  

Your final opponent is the guide, Isabella.

======================[O]-----------------------[O]

Isabella is using two Athenas, one having the Dragon, the other using the 
Flare.  Both are very difficult to hit, as they are upgraded Aerial Beauty 
models.  The Dragon gun and the Flare are also very powerful, so try to 
avoid them as much as you can.  Try your best, and you'll get it.  

After the tournament, Isabella will remind you that you should check out the 
other tournaments.  When you win them all, you'll gain access to another 
tournament.  You should head over to the final tournament, if you've done 
them in the same order as I have listed them.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

==============================================================================
6S. PLAYING WITH OBORO                                                      //
=============================================================================

The final tournament of the four is Playing With Oboro.  Your guide is Oboro 
himself.  He'll explain all the rules to you before you begin.  As you've 
already noticed, his memory has also been erased, so he won't remember a 
thing about you.  This tournament has the Single-Use Battle rules.  Not only 
that, but it all your opponents have an illegal part, so pick your parts, and 
begin.  

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

Your first opponent is a Z Lackey.  

=========================
Z Lackey                |
========================|
Body: Peregrine         |
Gun: Flame              |
Bomb: Treble /!\        |
Pod: Double Wave        |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Double Dead Line        |
=========================

Your first opponent is going to destroy you from the inside out.  This Lackey 
is using the Peregrine, which is bad enough without the Flame gun.  Firing at 
it will be a difficult task, made even harder with the Double Wave, as well 
as the illegal part, Treble.  Because the stage has magma zones, the 
Peregrine will be a bit more confined.  Stop it with a bomb or pod, and fire 
it into the magma zone to finish the job quickly.  

After the match, go to the Parts Generator for a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Swallow /!\

The Swallow is an illegal part.  It increases the dash speed of your robo, 
and augments the dash length.  Great for robos such as Lightning Skies and 
Strike Vanishers.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a Z Tech.  

=========================
Z Tech                  |

Pod: Caboose C          |
Legs: Ground            |
------------------------|
Impact Craters          |
=========================

This guy should be pretty simple.  The Sword Storm is easy to dodge with a 
Strike Vanisher model.  The Shrike is also easier to catch that way.  Finish 
this robo off quickly to score a perfect.  

After that, go to the Parts Generator.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Eclipse /!\

The Eclipse is another illegal part.  The Eclipse enables sharp turning in 
the air, as well as an increased jump height.  Great for Aerial Beauties.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is a Z Tech.  

=========================

Legs: Quick Jump        |
------------------------|
Basic Cell              |
=========================

Another easy opponent.  The only thing you should watch out for is the Waning 
Arc bomb.  Just fire at your opponent with a powerful gun to clear with 
another perfect.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

When you're ready, go to the Parts Generator for another new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Legs
Name: Raven /!\

The Raven is an illegal part.  It increases the jump height and the dash 
speed.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Shiner.

----------------------[O]
Sudden Death           []
======================[O]

The Breaker is now trapped in a small stadium, making its long air-dash 
completely useless.  The Wolf Spider will now be more difficult to avoid, 
but that shouldn't be a problem.  Take out Shiner to advance.  

After that, you can go to the Parts Generator again.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Waxing Arc /!\

The Waxing Arc is an illegal part.  It is an upgraded Left Wave bomb with 
higher firepower and a larger blast radius.  It launches one bomb at a time.  
When it hits, it blows the target diagonally upward.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Sergei.  

======================[O]

Legs: Wide Jump        []
----------------------[O]
L Formation            []
======================[O]

Sergei, unlike your other opponents, is using two illegal parts, the Ruheil, 
and the Orca.  The Sniper gun is very powerful, so try to avoid that as much 
as you can.  Ruheil will come in, fire at you, and leave before you can fire 
back.  Try stopping him with a hidden pod, and fire at him with your gun and 
bomb continuously.  This match is harder than your previous ones, so do your 
best, and prepare for the final match.  

Before you begin, go to the Parts Generator.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Waning Arc /!\

The Waning Arc is an illegal part.  It is an upgraded Right Wave bomb with 
higher firepower and a larger blast radius.  It launches one bomb at a time.  
When it hits, it blows the target diagonally upward.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your final opponent is the guide, Oboro.

----------------------[O]
L Formation            []
======================[O]

Oboro is by far the most difficult of the six.  Make sure you saved good 
parts for this match.  Rakensen is using another illegal part, the Waxing 
Arc.  The Tomahawk B and Cockroach G are easy to avoid.  The Booster won't 
be of much use to Rakensen, as he is in the air for most of the match.  Just 
fire at him with everything you've got to clear it.  

You'll be able to pick up these parts when you leave.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Wyrm /!\

The Wyrm is an illegal part.  It is a Dragon gun with upgraded firepower and 
additional rounds.  On the ground, it fires four rounds at the same time.  In 
the air, it fires one quick round.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Wolf Spider /!\

The Wolf Spider is an illegal part.  It is a Spider G with upgraded 
speed and a homing device.  It is able to deploy three bombs at a time.  When 
it hits, it blows the target upward.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the match, Oboro will tell you to talk to him if you've defeated all 
four tournaments.  When you get outside, be sure to do so.  

The game will now automatically save for you.

=============================================================================

When you enter the Z Boss room, you'll discover that Sergei is your guide.  
He's playing along with them, as he's supposed to be part of the Z 
Syndicate.  He'll explain the rules from there.  The Z Boss Room is a 
No-Limit Battle, and each of your opponents will be equipped with more than 2 
types of illegal parts.  

Before you begin, stand above the pillar to your left, face down, and press 
the A Button to obtain a new part.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Body
Name: Chickenheart

The Chickenheart is a Burning Beast model.  It has an excellent speed and 
jump height.  Just like the Strike Vanisher model, it has the stealth 
function.  Though it can only air-dash once, it can glide for a long time.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After that, you can begin the Z Boss Room.

----------------------[O]
Ice and Snow           []
======================[O]

Shiner is using the Breaker.  His two illegal parts are the Wyrm, an upgraded 
Dragon, and the Waxing Arc, an upgraded Left Wave.  Both should be avoided, 
as usual.  The High Jump legs will improve the Breaker's jump height, 
allowing for a great air-dash.  The Speed D is easy to avoid, so you don't 
have to worry about that.  Fire at Breaker with a powerful homing gun, and 
you should win no problem.  

Go to the Parts Generator after Shiner's out.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Pod
Name: Cheetah /!\

The Cheetah is an illegal part.  It is an upgraded Speed P with upgraded 
firepower, range, and number of rounds.  It's able to deploy three pods at a 
time.  When hit, the opponent flies upward, and the blast lingers.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Eliza.

----------------------[O]
Panic Cubes            []
======================[O]

Eliza's Athena is armed with two illegal parts, Wave Lazer and Raven.  Both 
are very dangerous, especially on an Aerial Beauty, so better watch out.  The 
Geo Trap and Caboose T are very powerful, and should be avoided in this 
match.  Fire at bomb or pod here and there to keep Eliza immobilized, then 
fire with your gun.  

After that, go to the Parts Generator.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Waning Arc /!\

The Waning Arc is an illegal part.  It's an upgraded Left Arc with additional 
rounds and a homing device.  It fires four rounds that start at the left and 
curve at an angle.  The rounds turn in the opposite direction when fired in 
the air.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your next opponent is Isabella.

----------------------[O]

======================[O]

Isabella, like her twin, is using Athena with an illegal gun and legs.  The 
Crystal Strike is an excellent spam weapon, so try to avoid it, while trying 
not to get hit by the Freeze and Ground Freeze.  Should be similar to your 
previous match.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

After that, you can go to the Parts Generator.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Gun
Name: Waxing Arc /!\

The Waxing Arc is an illegal part.  It's an upgraded Right Arc with 
additional rounds and a homing device.  It fires four rounds that start at 
the right and curve at an angle.  The rounds turn in the opposite direction 
when fired in the air.

----------------------[O]
Castle Keep            []
======================[O]

Oboro is using Rakensen with the Raptor and Eclipse, two more illegal parts.  
The Crescent P and Float F should be easy to avoid, but be careful of the 
Raptor.  Rakensen teleports all over the place, so use bombs and pods a lot.  

Go to the Parts Generator afterwards.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PART

Part: Bomb
Name: Wyvern /!\

The Wyvern is an illegal part.  It's an upgraded Standard X with a larger

======================[O]

Sergei is using Ruhiel with the Waning Arc and Cheetah.  The Cheetah is 
very fast on the ground, while the Waning Arc takes you when you try to 
avoid it.  Jump over the Double Mine, then fire at Ruheil with a quick and 
powerful gun to win quickly.  

Before you fight the final boss, go to the Parts Generator.

The Orca is an illegal part.  It's an upgraded Dolphin G with upgraded

Your dad is using the Ray Legend, an obsolete version of Ray 01, with the 
X Laser and Eclipse.  Though his robo is very powerful, and is armed with a 
good gun, the Standard parts make him extremely vulnerable.  Take your your 
old man with ease.

The Ray Legend is an illegal part.  It's an Obsolete version of Ray 01, made

poor defense.

After that, go to the Amusement Park!

You'll head into the restroom for your tournament.  Paulie is your guide.  
The rules are Handicap Match rules, so you already know the Task Scores will 
be pretty low.  Good luck.

Your first two opponents are Bogey and Lloyd.  

===================================================
Bogey                   |Lloyd                    |
========================|=========================|
Body: Tank Head         |Body: Criminal           |
Gun: Left Arc           |Gun: Claw                |

------------------------|-------------------------|
Robo's Room             |Robo's Room              |
===================================================

Bogey is using the Tank Head and Left Arc, while Lloyd uses the Criminal and 
Claw.  Though the guns will cause you grief, the bombs and pods are fairly 
slow, and easy to dodge.  All you have to do is fire at them with your 
weapons to advance.  

Your next two opponents are Sophie and Trish.  

===================================================
Sophie                  |Trish                    |
========================|=========================|
Body: Sol               |Body: Swift              |

Bomb: Left Flank H      |Bomb: Dual               |
Pod: Speed D            |Pod: Cockroach G         |
Legs: Ground            |Legs: Stabilizer         |
------------------------|-------------------------|
Robo's Room             |Robo's Room              |
===================================================

Sophie uses the Sol and Twin Fang, and Trish uses the Swift and Dragon.  
Both bombs and pods are easy to dodge.  I'd recommend taking out the 
Swift first.  Because the Dragon is a powerful gun with an excellent 
homing ability, it's not good to keep her in the game.  Then, take out 
the Sol, and you're done.  

Your next opponents are Lucy and Carmen.  

Before you begin the match, talk to Lucy repeatedly.  Eventually, she'll 
remember to give you the Rahu II set.  

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

The Penumbra II is an illegal part.  It is a pod that has merged with an 
unknown living being.  It is a Penumbra I with upgraded firepower and

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

After that, you can begin.

Panic Walls             |Panic Walls              |
===================================================

Lucy and Carmen are both using slow robos.  Taking them out with a Strike 
Vanisher would be no problem at all.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

Your next two opponents are two Z Lackeys.  

===================================================

------------------------|-------------------------|
Panic Walls             |Panic Walls              |
===================================================

The Metal Bear has a great spam weapon, but if you stay at a distance, 
it won't be able to hit you.  Try taking out the Criminal first, then 
finish off the Metal Bear.  

Your next two opponents are Isabella and Eliza.  

======================[O]=======================[O]
Isabella               []Eliza                   []

======================[O]=======================[O]

Both are using Athena.  Taking out Isabella first wouldn't be a bad idea, as 
the Waning Arc is a bit more effective than the Flame.  Eliza's bomb and 
Isabella's pod are difficult to dodge, so be careful.  

Your final two opponents are Oboro and Shiner.  

======================[O]=======================[O]
Oboro                  []Shiner                  []

----------------------[O]-----------------------[O]
Castle Keep            []Castle Keep             []
======================[O]=======================[O]

Oboro is using the Rakensen with a Shotgun, and Shiner is using the Breaker 
with the Wyrm.  Shiner would definitely be the first to be knocked down.  
His weak defense will keep him from using his powerful gun efficiently.  
When he's out, defeat Oboro to win.

=============================================================================

This is the first match, so all your opponents are easy.  They aim at each 
other more than they aim at you.  It should be a straight-forward match.  

Your next three opponents are Wendy, Walt, and Will.  

=============================================================================
Wendy                   |Walt                     |Will                     |

Merry-Go-Round          |Merry-Go-Round           |Merry-Go-Round           |
=============================================================================

Each of them have a powerful wewapon.  Wendy's pod, Will's bomb, and Walt's 
gun will be problematic throughout the match.  Try eliminating Wendy first, 
as the low defense will help.  Take out whoever you want next.  It's easy 
from there.  

Your next three opponents are Sherry, Jin, and Katu.  

=============================================================================
Sherry                  |Jin                      |Katu                     |

Scramble Walls          |Scramble Walls           |Scramble Walls           |
=============================================================================

The Defender is a big problem in this match.  It should be easy to take out 
because it has a low defense, though.  The Buggy and Tank Head will tend to 
fire at each other a lot.  Fire at them at your convenience.  

The game will now automatically save for you.  

Your next three opponents are three Z Lackeys.  

=============================================================================

Scramble Walls          |Scramble Walls           |Scramble Walls           |
=============================================================================

The Shrike has the lowest defense.  Take it out first.  When Glaive and 
Metal Ape are left, it'll be hard to pick who to eliminate.  I went with 
removing Metal Ape from the match, but it's your choice.  

Your final three opponents are Evil, Delpha, and Bubble.  

=============================================================================
Evil                    |Delpha                   |Bubble                   |

Taking out Delpha first isn't a bad idea, as he has a low defense.  Evil 
will spam at you a lot, so he should be taken out second.  Take out BUbble 
to win the Silver Battle Royal.  

Pick up your new part later.

Your first opponent is Linda.  

=========================
Linda                   |

Gun: Hornet             |

Pod: Jumping B          |
Legs: High Jump         |
------------------------|
Panic Walls             |
=========================

Linda is using her classis Seeker and Hornet combo.  Because she is using the 
High Jump, getting at the Seeker will be harder than usual.  The Dual C and 
Jumping B are very effective in Panic Walls, as you may never know when 
they're coming.  Fire at Seeker with a bomb or pod, then finish off with 
whatever gun you picked.  

Your next opponent is Chief.  

=========================
Chief                   |
========================|
Body: Metal Ox          |
Gun: Rayfall            |
Bomb: Wave              |
Pod: Diving             |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Scramble Walls          |
=========================

The Metal Ox will fall victim to a quick robo.  The Wave and Diving will 
work well in Scramble walls, just like your previous match.  The Rayfall 
isn't used much often, but when it is, be sure to dodge.  Try using a 
Lightning SKy or Strike Vanisher to gain the edge.  Fire with a powerful 
or quick gun to take him out.  

Your next opponent is Sergei.  

=========================
Sergei                  |
========================|
Body: Ruhiel /!\        |
Gun: Eagle              |
Bomb: Left Flank H      |
Pod: Beast F            |
Legs: Wide Jump         |
------------------------|
Castle Citadel          |
=========================

Sergei is using the Ruhiel with the Eagle.  A Lightning Sky with a gun like 
this is a big problem.  The Beast F is a very good part to use with a 
Lightning Sky as well.  Because of the Wide Jump, it'll be hard to avoid 
Sergei.  I received the least points against him, so that shows how much 
grief a powered-up illegal part will cause you.  Do you best.  

Your next opponent is Roy.  

=========================
Roy                     |
========================|
Body: Halberd           |
Gun: Magnum             |
Bomb: Straight T        |
Pod: Caboose T          |
Legs: Feather           |
------------------------|
Lost World              |
=========================

Roy is using the Halberd with the Magnum.  This match should be fairly 
easy.  Because the Magnum is a short-ranged weapon, and the stage is 
rather large, you shouldn't have a problem avoiding it.  You should 
watch out for the pod, though, as it is used often.  I used the Ion, 
and received 38000 points easy, so you may want to use that.  It's up to 
you.  

Your next opponent is Mira.  

=========================
Mira                    |
========================|
Body: Sol               |
Gun: Ion                |
Bomb: Geo Trap          |
Pod: Speed P            |
Legs: Long Thrust       |
------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

If you chose the Ion in the previous match, you know what this means.  The 
Sol will be hard to get at.  The Geo Trap will also reach past walls, so 
hiding is useless.  Avoid the Speed P bombs, and when the Sol is in the 
open, fire with your gun.  Use pods and charges to get maximum damage while 
the Sol is down.  

Your next opponent is Ernest.  

=========================
Ernest                  |
========================|
Body: Metal Bear        |
Gun: Sniper             |
Bomb: Tomahawk B        |
Pod: Standard F         |
Legs: Stabilizer        |
------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

Ernest is using the Metal Bear and the Sniper.  Because he's difficult to 
knock down, try using a K bomb, so that he'll be instantly knocked down.  
Then, fire with a quick gun to take his hit points down quickly.  I used the 
Drill, as the Metal Bear is heavy, and will now move around too much when 
he's up.  Just try to get him first; the Sniper is powerful.  

Your next opponent is Marcia.  

=========================
Marcia                  |
========================|
Body: Milky Way         |
Gun: Homing Star        |

Pod: Dolphin G          |
Legs: Wide Jump         |
------------------------|
Nature Park             |
=========================

Marcia is using the much-feared Milky Way and Homing Star combination.  This 
could be a problem for you.  Do you best to stay under cover, and leave as 
quickly as possible when Marcia is putting those Wide Jump legs to good use.  
The Dolphin G will be roaming on the ground, so your best bet is in the air.  
Take out Marcia to meet your final opponent.  

Your final opponent is Harry.

Sudden Death            |
=========================

The Glory and the Flare is very powerful, especially when you can't get 
away.  You can only go so far in the Sudden Death stage.  Fire as many bombs 
and pods as you can, and fire you gun at every possible moment.  The Flare 
will pack a lot of damage if you're hit, so the best thing to do is knock 
him down first.  Defeat your final opponent to complete your last 
tournament.  

Pick up this part whenever you can.

__________________
STRATEGIC ADVICE  \
==============================================================================
BASIC INSTRUCTIONS
Robo VS. Robo.
Attack your enemy's robo and reduce its energy to zero to win.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CONTROLS 1
Use the Control Stick to move.
Press the B Button to shoot your robo's gun, the R Button to fire its bomb, 
and the L Button to launch its pod.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CONTROLS 2
Press the A Button to jump.  After a jump, press the A Button to air dash 
twice (using Ray 01).
Press the X Button to charge into your opponent's robo.  You can knock your 
opponent down with a single blow, but you can't charge while you are in the 
air.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE ROBO CANNON
Once a battle starts, a cube discharge machine called the robo machine 
appears.  Your robo is launched from the red tube on the left.
The robo cube rolls on the ground and transforms wherever it stops.  The 
first to transform gets to attack first.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRING THE ROBO CANNON
Use the Control Stick to change the direction of the robo cannon.
Once your robo cube lands, the number that appears on the cube shows how long 
it will take for your robo cube to transform.  When the countdown hits zero, 
your robo is ready for action!  Press the A, B, X, or Y button rapidly to 
speed up the countdown.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GENERATING NEW PARTS
You receive access to new robo parts every time you win a battle.
Pick up your new parts at any Parts Generator, conveniently located 
throughout the town.  You can use your new parts in your next battle.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEST MODE
Press the R Button on the customization screen to enter Test Mode.  Try out 
new parts here, and see how they work.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CUSTOMIZATION TIPS
Equipping a new part does not necessarily make your robo stronger.  Plan out 
your battle by customizing your robo to suit your opponent and your 
battlefield.  Stick with parts you know until you learn their strengths and 
weaknesses.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROBO MODELS
There are many different robo models, each possessing different abilities.  
For example, a Shining Fighter can dash in the air if you press the A Button 
after a jump.  An Aerial Beauty, however, will do a single, continuous jump.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROBO STYLES
Sometimes, the same model of robo will come in a variety of different 
styles.  These styles may have entirely different abilities.  For example, 
the Shining Fighter model comes in three different styles:Normal, Armor, and 
Speed.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROBO STYLE VARIATIONS
Normal:
  A well-balanced style that sets the standard for robo combat.
Armor:
  A style with extra armor plating that costs it some speed.
Speed:
  A style with greater speed due to its reduced armor load.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROBO MODEL STATUS DETAILS 1
DWN: Endurance
  Indicates how much abuse the robo can take before it system fails, and it 
  falls down.  The higher the bar, the harder it is to be knocked down.
DEF: Defense

SYSTEM FAILURE 1
If a robo is hit by a strong attack or receives a great deal of damage in a 
short time, its systems shut down temporarily, and it will collapse.
A robo cannot move while it is down, but when it recovers, it is momentarily 
invincible while its systems go online again.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SYSTEM FAILURE 2
If your robo is knocked down, you can reboot your system and stand up quickly 
by tapping the buttons on your controller repeatedly.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MOVING ON THE GROUND
It takes a while for a robo to pick up speed from a complete stop.  If you 
stop moving, you will be vulnerable to attack.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRING YOUR GUN
After their guns fire, robos cannot move for a brief moment.  Take advantage 
of this by firing at your opponent's robo after it has fired at you.  Your 
opponents will use this tactic against you, too, so time your attacks well.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SLIDE SHOT
After firing your gun, your robo pauses momentarily.  Use a slide shot to 
protect yourself: press the B Button while moving, and you will slide while 
firing your gun.  Using this slide shot, you can maneuver your robo so that 
you come to a halt behind some defensive cover once your final round fires.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USING OBSTACLES 1
Open areas leave your robo vulnerable to attack.  Plan a strategy that takes 
advantage of your terrain.  Hide behind walls, dodge shots, and look for ways 
to attack your opponent without fear of a counterattack.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USING OBSTACLES 2
Never just charge your opponent.  Use your environment wisely, and attack 
from behind obstacles.  Use a wall for cover and lob bombs at your foe or 
make short jumps and attack with your gun.  Your opponent won't be able to 
exploit your vulnerabilities, because you will be protected behind the wall.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AVOID THE CORNERS
Be careful around the holosseum's four corners.  If your opponent fires a 
pod and a bomb from both sides, you will be trapped in the blast.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JUMP HEIGHT
How high your robo jumps is determined by how long you press the A Button.  
Tap on the A Button for a shorter jump.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JUMP VULNERABILITY
The higher you jump, the more open to attacks you become.  If you do an air 
dash, you will be vulnerable when you land as well.  Target your landing 
behind a wall to protect yourself when you are vulnerable.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
POD VULNERABILITY
Unlike with the gun and the bomb, you experience no moment of vulnerability 
when you fire a pod.  Use the pod as often as possible.  Just make sure you 
don't run into your own explosions!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRING PODS
Press the L Button while tilting the Control Stick in the direction you want 
the pod to go.  If you do not tilt the Control Stick, it automatically 
targets your opponent.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USING PODS
Before you fire a pod, think about where you want it to go.  Do you want to 
hit your opponent or just block its path?  Try forcing it into one of the 
holosseum's four corners, and then blast away!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SETTING PODS
Certain pods need to be placed in a triangle formation (like the spider and 
satellite pods).  Place the three pods somewhere your opponent will cross, 
but don't place them too close together or too far apart.  Place them well, 
and your opponent will be pinned.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRING BOMBS 1
You can change the location your bomb will target by tilting the Control 
Stick while pressing the R Button.  Some bombs are well suited for blocking 
your opponent's movement.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRING BOMBS 2
If you tilt the Control Stick toward your opponent and press the R Button, 
your bomb will go far.  Also, try holding the R Button for a short time.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BLAST TYPES 1
Standards models of targets blast the target diagonally upward.  Models with 
the initials following their names have different effects.
G: Gazer
  Blasts the target upward.
H: Horizon
  Blasts the target slowly to the side.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BLAST TYPES 2
B: Burst
  Blasts the target sideways, close to the ground.  Leaves a blast zone.
D: Destroy
  Blasts the target diagonally upward.  Leaves a blast zone.
S: Stun
  Temporarily paralyzes the target.
P: Pillar
  Blasts your opponent straight up.  Leaves a blast zone.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BLAST TYPES 3
F: Flipper
  Blasts the target sideways.
C: Cyclone
  Blasts the target slowly upward.
T: Traction
  Blasts the target toward the robo that fired the bomb.  
K: Knockdown
  Knocks the target down.
X: Explosion
  Blasts the target diagonally upward.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USING THE AIR DASH
There are a number of ways to use the air dash effectively.  Use it as a 
feint while pretending to land, or use it to approach your opponent quickly.  
It is also useful for dodging, but you will still be vulnerable to attacks.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOW AIR DASH
You can do a low air dash if you repeatedly tap the A Button while on the 
ground.  Use this to move quickly from one wall to another without losing too 
much of your cover.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHARGE INVINCIBILITY TIME
Press the X Button to charge your opponent.  Your robo will be invincible 
during your charge.  (It will turn red to indicate this).  If you charge 
correctly, you can approach your enemy while dodging his shots.  However, you 
will be vulnerable before and after you charge, so be careful.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHARGE VARIATIONS
Every robo has a different charge attack:
Attack: Charge directly into your foe.
Air: Charge upward into the air.
Movement: Clear walls, etc.
Evasion: Avoid damage.
Try out different robos to learn which charge suits your fighting style.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BATTLE TIPS 1
If you want the best results, learn to use your gun, bomb, and pod weapons in 
combination.  Otherwise, your own attacks will be so predictable that your 
opponent will be able to dodge them with ease.  When you attack, decide 
whether you want to hit your opponent or just stop it or block its path.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BATTLE TIPS 2
First, trap your opponent by firing two pods on either side of it.  Then, 
block its escape route and fire a bomb.  Finish your foe off with the gun.  
This is a basic strategy, but not every weapon is well suited to it.  
Experiment, and develop a strategy that suits your style.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
COMBOS
Blow your opponent into the ait with a pod or bomb, and finish it off with 
your gun.  Chaining your attacks together like this makes a combo.
For example, when Jumping Pod B explodes above your opponent's head, hit it 
with a Straight Bomb G.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SYSTEM OVERLOAD
When two robos fire their guns at one another and one of the robos is knocked 
down, that robo's gun rounds disappear because of a system overload.  Try to 
knock your opponent down to avoid being hit by its gun.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GUNNING FOR AN OVERLOAD
If your opponent has a gun that fires slowly, try for an overload so that its 
attack doesn't hit you.  For example, opponents armed with a hornet gun, 
rayfall gun, or bubble gun are easier to overload.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WEAPONS WITH AERIAL ABILITIES
Certain guns and bombs (the rayfall gun, for example) change abilities when 
fired from the air.  The time it takes for a round to hit your opponent 
changes drastically depending on where you fire it from.  Learn these 
weapons, and plan your strategy accordingly.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SHORT-JUMP FIRING
If you want to shoot from the air without jumping high and exposing yourself 
to return fire, press the A and B Buttons at the same time.  Your robo will 
make a short hop, letting you fire from above.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DODGE WITH CONTINUOUS JUMPS
If you are using a robo with a continuous jump, you can dodge enemy gun 
rounds.  While you are in the air, wait until the rounds have almost hit you, 
then press the A Button to dodge.  If you jump recklessly, your enemy will 
simply wait for you to land and exploit your moment of vulnerability.  Think 
before you jump!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DODGING HOMING ROUNDS
Some rounds possess a strong homing ability, but they move more slowly than 
other rounds.  Dodge them by letting them approach and then jumping at the 
last second.  Remember, though, that you will be vulnerable when you land!  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DODGING FAST ROUNDS
Some rounds move at a higher speed than others.  Dodge guns with a high rate 
of fire, like the gatling gun, by moving in a circle around your opponent.  
The rounds won't be able to home in on your position.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
APPROACH FROM THE AIR
When approaching an opponent from the air, circle around it.  You make an 
easy target if you approach directly, but you will be able to dodge your 
enemy's shots if you circle in on it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TAG BATTLE 1
You and your partner fight against two other robos.  If either of your 
robos' energy reaches zero, you lose.
Change your target by pressing the Y Button.  Be careful, though: you cannot 
change targets while firing your gun.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TAG BATTLE 2
You cannot receive damage from your partner's gun or collision during a 
2-on-2 battle.  However, you still receive damage if you are hit by your 
partner's bomb or pod.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GRAND BATTLE RULES\
==============================================================================
THE GRAND BATTLE 1
The second part of the Story mode, available once you've completed A New 
Journey.  Essentially, the Grand Battle is a series of highly competitive 
tournaments.  At first, only one tournament is available, but as you finish 
more battles, other buildings and other tournaments will open up.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE GRAND BATTLE 2
Your opponents in the Grand Battle are harder than those from A New Journey.  
They will also use a greater variety of parts, so you will experience a wide  
array of battle styles.  These battles will earn you many parts you couldn't 
get in A New Journey, so have fun!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR PARTS
Use the robo parts and chassis you obtain in the Grand Battle to give 
yourself even more challenge in A New Journey.  Any parts you earn in the 
Grand Battle will be available to you in A New Journey, as well.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UNLIMITED BATTLE
You are free to use any part or robo chassis you have.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SINGLE-USE BATTLE
You can only use a part or robo chassis in one of the battles.  As you win 
battles, you temporarily lose access to the parts you used to win.  If you 
win, you lose access only to the weapon parts and robo chassis you used.  
You do not lose access to leg parts.  If you lose, you do not have to give up 
anything.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCORING
Battle scores from the Great Battle are recorded and saved.  
Energy: 300 points for every percentage point.  
Time: 100 points for every second remaining.  
Losses: Score drops by 10% per loss.  
Handicap: Score drops for every 25% handicap.  
Illegal Parts: Reduces score by 50%.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCORING 2
Fulfilling certain requirements earns you bonus points.  
Perfect Bonus (win without taking any damage): 5,000 pts.
Destruction Bonus: 10,000 points for each opponent you defeat.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TASK SCORE
A set of three different score thresholds that vary from building to 
building.  If your score in a match beats the task scores, you will receive a 
gold, silver, or bronze trophy, depending on your final score.  Find out what 
happens if you collect trophies from all of the tournaments!  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TAG BATTLE 1
Use two robos, swapping them mid-battle as needed.  If you reduce either of 
your opponent's robos to 0 energy, you win.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TAG BATTLE 2
Swap robos with the Y Button.  
After changing your robo, you have to wait seven seconds to change again.  
You can change while you're down.  If you change while you're down, you will 
be momentarily invincible.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TAG BATTLE 3
When a robo is not fighting in the holosseum, its energy will slowly increase 
if it is below 150.  However, it will not increase above 150.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2-ON-2 BATTLE 1
A battle where you partner up with another robo and fight against two 
opponents.  Even if your partner is still fighting, you lose the match if 
your energy reaches 0.  Change targets with the Y Button.  You cannot change 
targets while firing your gun.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2-ON-2 BATTLE 2

PARTS GENERATORS, PRACTICE MODE, AND THE GLOSSARY
 Given by: Harry
 Sitation: After foiling the burglary
 Location: Lab
 Day One: Employment

A parts generator registers new part data into your robo cube.  When you buy a
robo, it only comes with the standard parts.  You won't have access to a lot 
of parts if you don't collect enough battle experience.  When a robo gethers
battle experience, the internal computer records the battle information.  The
parts generator automatically reads the record and gives you the new part.
Any new parts you get, you can use them in the next battle.  Whatever parts 
you want to use, is up to you.  You can customize as much as you like.  
That's it for the hard stuff.  It's best to check the parts generator after 
every battle.  Your opponent's not gonna wait for you while you make a quick 
run to the parts generator.  And, obviously, you can't slip out during a 
battle.  That's why it's best to check with the parts generator after every 
battle.  Even if you forget to check after a battle, you can still get the 
part afterwards...However, if it's just waiting for you to pick it up, why 
not go get it as soon as possible?  The more parts, the more you cn customize 
your robo.  It gives you a real advantage in battle.  So make sure you check 
the parts generator after every battle.  Also, open the customize screen 
before a battle.  If you press the R Button in that menu, you can practice 
with your new part.  When you want to get out of Practice mode, press START 
and then select RETIRE.  Well, if you don't understand, press START while 
you're walking around to check the glossary.

THE ABILITY TO OPERATE NEW PARTS
 Given by: Lab Tech
 Situation: After foiling burglary
 Location: Lab
 Day One: Employment

Most commanders become better by fighting, by mastering each of their robo's
abilities.  By fighting, robos customize their programming and develop the
ability to operate new parts.  That's why robos don't come preinstalled with
all the parts.  That custom robo needs battle experience in order to alter its
code and "learn" new parts.  Parts generators read your robo's battle log and
install any parts your robo is able to use.  That's why you should check the
nearest parts generator after you finish a battle.  Afterr all, you don't want
to miss an opportunity to get a new part!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DEFINITION OF COMMANDER

THE "CUSTOM" IN CUSTOM ROBO
 Given by: Lab Tech
 Situation: After foiling burglary
 Location: Lab
 Day One: Employment

Custom robos are composed of five parts: a body, a gun, a bomb, a pod, and a
leg unit.  Commanders have the freedom to customize any of these five parts in
any way they want.  The "custom" part comes from planning your robo design
based on your battle situation.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DIVING
 Given by: Lab Tech
 Situation: After foiling burglary
 Location: Lab
 Day One: Employment

Remember, even though it's a robo, once you dive into it, it's an extension of
your own body.  During a dive, a commander's thoughts merge with the robo's
CPU, giving maximum control!  When a robo receives damage, the commander
experiences a kind of mental trauma.  It's a side effect of the dive.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOLOSSEUMS
 Given by: Lab Tech
 Situation: After foiling burglary
 Location: Lab
 Day One: Employment

Robos usually remain in their cube form, but when they enter the holosseum,
they transform into full-fledged robos.  A holosseum is a virtual battlefield
generated by a commander's mind and memories.  Sometimes, your opponent will 
be the ones whose memories are generating the holosseum.  However, some 
commanders are simply unable to generate a holosseum.  It's not that they're 
weaker or that they're worse commanders.  It's an ability you either have or 
you don't.  Just like how some people are tall and some people are short... 
There's not much you can do to change genetics.  Commanders who can't 
generate a holosseum just use ones that are available on the market.  They 
use a basic holosseum that comes preinstalled into the robo.  There's even a 
machine called a holosseum deck that can create a holosseum.

WHAT BOUNTY HUNTERS DO
 Given by: Hero
 Situation: Talking to Lucy before work
 Location: Hero's House
 Day Two: Training

It's hard to explain, but basically, we hunt down criminals whose crimes
involve robos.  We take requests that the police squad considers too small to
bother with.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HOLOSSEUM DECKS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Harry
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

This table here's called a holosseum deck.  It's a machine that projects a
holosseum.  Some commanders, like me, can create their own holosseum.  Some
can't.  Just the way it is.  Commanders who can't just use a holosseum that's
built into their custom robo... or they use holosseum decks like these to make
one for them.

CHANGING THE DIRECTIONS YOUR PODS FIRE
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Harry
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

You've probably noticed, but you can change the direction the pod fires in.
Tilt the Control Stick so it aims where you wanna shoot, and press the L
Button.  If you don't tilt the Control Stick, it'll automatically fire in the
direction of your opponent.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USING NEW PARTS
 Given by: Girl
 Situation: Training in Gym
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

Just because you get a new part doesn't mean it's going to make you stronger
when you use it.  A strong commander knows his opponent, his environment, and
the best weapons for the battle.  Don't change your parts on a whim.  Find a
part you like, use it for a while, and master it.  You'll have lots of time to
work out your favorite customization.  But, of course, you WILL want to
experiment with new parts every now and then.  So after you're done with your
battle, don't forget to check the parts generator, OK?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GETTING KNOCKED DOWN/REBIRTH MODE
 Given by: Computer
 Situation: Before fighting Computer
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

You should take caution ro prevent your robo from being knocked down.  If you
receive a powerful attack or repeated attacks in a short period of time, your
robo will overload.  When it overloads, it is knocked down and vulnerable to
attacks for a short time.  However, you will be invincible for a short time
after you get up, while your robo's systems reboot.  If you tap the buttons
quickly, your robo will rise more rapidly.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TRICK FLYER MODELS
 Given by: Computer
 Situation: Before fighting Computer
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

Allow me to explain the Trick Flyer model.  My robo utilizes this body type.
The Trick Flyer has excellent aerial abilities.  However, it moves slowly on
the ground.  It doesn't jump far, but it can do a quick air dash up to 3 
times.  When using a Trick Flyer, you should approach your opponent with an 
air dash and then attack.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
KEEP MOVING
 Given by: Computer
 Situation: Before fighting Computer
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

Once a robo stops moving, it takes time for it to rech full movement speed
again.  As a result, it can be dangerous to stop moving.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SLIDE SHOTS
 Given by: Computer
 Situation: Before fighting Computer
 Location: Gym
 Day Two: Training

You become vulnerable after you fire a gun.  Use a slide shot to cover this.
If you press the B Button while moving, you can fire yoru gun while sliding in
that direction.  If you use this skill properly, you can shoot while moving
behind a wall for cover.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HEIGHT OF JUMPS

 Day Three: Getting Licensed

In order to work as a bounty hunter, you need a Class-D License.  I'm gonna
take that test.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TO TAKE THE TEST...
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before taking Class-D License Test
 Location: Test Hall
 Day Three: Getting Licensed

To put it simply, press the A Button while you're in front of the exam
machine.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
KEEP MOVING
 Given by: Computer
 Situation: Before fighting Computer
 Location: Test Hall
 Day Three: Getting Licensed

Never just run into an open area without a reason.  You always want to be
hiding behind walls, dodging shots, and looking for ways to attack.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROBO TYPES
 Given by: Girl
 Situation: In the Test Hall, the day you get your license
 Location: Test Hall
 Day Three: Getting Licensed

Let me tell you about the types of robo.  Each type is just a different robo
model, like the Shining Fighter or Aerial Beauty...  The type is what makes
the robos different from one another.  That Ray 01 of yours is a Shining
Fighter model.  Different types have different abilities.  For example, a
Shining Fighter can air dash if you press the A Button after a jump.  But an
Aerial Beauty will do an air jump is you press the A Button in the air.  The
Little Raider model runs really fast... and the Metal Grappler has a high
endurance, making it difficult to knock it down... There's lots of other ones
too.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROBO STYLES
 Given by: Girl
 Situation: In the Test Hall, the day you get your license
 Location: Test Hall
 Day Three: Getting Licensed

Now, let me tell you about robo styles.  Each type of robo is broken into a
number of different models.  Ask the girl next to me.  She knows more about
robo types.  Basically, the style is just a more specialized robo model.  For
example, there are a bunch of different robo styles within the Shining Fighter
model.  Actually, there are only three different style variations: normal,
armor, and speed.  The normal style is a well-balanced robo that sets the
standard for robos everywhere.  Armor has higher defense than normal, but its
speed is slow.  Speed is faster than normal, obviously, but it sacrifices a 
bit of defense as a result.  So, choose a style that best suits the way you 
fight.  Once you start getting a lot of robos, then you'll have to worry 
about choosing one.  Oh, and each robo has a different X Button charge.  That 
should also help you select a robo.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE SAFETY SWITCH
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before breaking up Walt and Carmen's battle
 Location: Walt's House
 Day Four: The Problem Next Door

It's a switch that decreases your robo's power.  It's to prevent you from
hurting your opponent.  The switch is on the robo cube.  If you turn the 
safety switch on and dive, the safety mechanism will automatically kick in.  
It won't look any different though...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
METAL GRAPPLER MODELS
 Given by: Carmen
 Situation: Before fighting Carmen
 Location: Walt's House
 Day Four: The Problem Next Door

The Metal Grappler has extremely high defense.  It's hard for it to get
knocked down, but since it moves slwo, I have a hard time dodging attacks.  I
can only do one air dash.  I usually focus on attacking, rather than worrying
about a little damage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION TO 2-ON-2 BATTLES
 Given by: Harry, (Hero)
 Situation: Before fighting Carmen and Walt
 Location: Walt's House
 Day Four: The Problem Next Door

You've never had a 2-on-2 battle before, have you?  It's when two people team
up on two others.  Hey, Hero.  Listen carefully.  I'll explain 2-on-2 battles
to you.  The basic controls are the same as the one-on-one battles, but 
there's one difference.  The arrow on top of your robo's head locks on to one 
of your opponents.  If you want to change your target, press the Y Button.  
Remember, press the Y Button to change your target.  Got it?!  Oh, and your 
robo'll still launch from the red robo cannon.  I'll shoot from the blue robo 
cannon.  Our opponents launch from the green and yellow robo cannons.  The 
colors of the robo cannons indicate the colors of the robos battling in the 
match.  For example, you're red and I'm blue, and our opponents are green and 
yellow.  Every time you press the Y Button, the colored arrow above you 
changes to either green or yellow. (Hero: But not blue?)  I told you.  I'm 
blue!  What good does it do you to shoot your partner?  Watch out though--you 
can't fire your gun hwile you'r changing targets.  Your opponents have 
colored arrows over their heads, too.  When those arrows turn red, that means 
they're locked on to you.  Look carefully at the colored arrows and see who's 
locked on to whom...  Keep that in mind while you fight, OK?!

THE GUY DIED OF STRESS
 Given by: Ernest
 Situation: After seeing dead man

 Day Five: Don and Bogey

Looks like mental shock killed him.  You can take real, physical damage in a
robo battle...  But it takes a tremendous amount of stress to actually kill
someone!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DEFINITION OF AUTONOMOUS ROBO
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: After Mira says an autnomous robo killed the man
 Location: Daimon
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

An autonomous robo moves itself without having any commander dive into it.
They were designed for manual and repetitive labor.  I've never heard of one
that fights, though.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MARCIA'S SPECIAL ABILITY
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before Marcia half-dives
 Location: Daimon
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

It's when Marcia dives partway into a robo.  She's the only person who can do
this.  Remember what I told you a while back?  Marcia's had this special power
since she was young.  Marcia can dive into a robo that's already been
registered by eye contact.  It doesn't mean she can control a preregistered
robo, though.  However, she is able to read the commander's remaining
cognition.  So whatever the commander saw through his robo's eyes, she sees.
She can even read that guy's last thoughts.  Kinda gruesome, huh?  Only thing
is, when she does this...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON MARCIA'S POWER
 Given by: Harry, (Hero)
 Situation: Waiting for Marcia
 Location: Steel Hearts HQ
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

I don't know much about it.  It's a rare talent.  I've never met anyone else
who can do a half-dive. (Really?  But there might be others?  I've never even
HEARD about half-dives before now.)  Well, according to my sis...  Marcia's 
the only commander alive today who can do a half-dive. (Wow... She's pretty
extraordinary, isn't she?)  Well, she's somethin', all right.  But it doesn't
sound all that great.  Her power makes her extremely sensitive.  Emotionally
speaking, I mean.  (How so?)  For exampl,e you ever have times when there's
something on your mind?  Don't you get worried?  Well, in Marcia's case...
Take those worries and multiply them by a hundred.  She gets so stressed out,
she just freezes.  (That's pretty sensitive.)  Yeah.  She's been like that
since she was a child.  That's why she seems so distant.  She needs the
distance to keep from getting hurt by people.  See, it's like this: Marcia's
big brother always used to protect her.  (That's rough.  Being that sensitive
and losing both your parents and your brother...)  Yeah, she really sorta hit
rock bottom.  It took a lot of work for Marcia to get where she is now.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON 2-ON-2 BATTLES
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Evil and Lackey
 Location: Bogey's Cafe
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

Let me tell you a little more about 2-on-2 battles.  In a 2-on-2 battle, your
partner's gun shots and charges won't hurt you.  However, you still take
damage if you get hit by your partner's pod or bomb blasts.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STRIKE VANISHER MODELS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Paulie
 Location: Bogey's Cafe - Back Room
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

This guy's using a Strike Vanisher model.  Let me explain.  Like the Shining
Fighter, the Strike Vanisher model's abilities are well-balanced.  But the
biggest difference is that it has a stealth function built into it.  If you do
an air dash, this function will make your robo disappear, dodging incoming
gunfire.  But compared to a Shining Fighter model, it moves slowly.  If you're
going to use a Strike Vanisher, take advantage of its stealth ability to dodge
gunfire.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE DIAMOND CELL HOLOSSEUM
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Paulie
 Location: Bogey's Cafe - Back Room
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

There's a holosseum called a Diamond Cell that the police squad uses.  There's
a magma zone in that holosseum, so be careful. (Magma zone?) Yeah, it's the 
red area.  You'll take a lot of damage if you go into that area.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
POD STRATEGIES
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Walt
 Location: Bogey's Cafe - Back Room
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

Think where you're going to fire when you use the pod.  You can do all kinds 
of things with the pod.  You can block your foe's way by firing ahead of 'em.
Also, use the corners of the holosseum to corner your foe.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
VULNERABILITY AFTER JUMPING
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Harry
 Location: Bogey's Cafe - Back Room
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

The higher you jump, the more vulnerable you become.  Same goes for an air
dash... You'll be vulnerable when you land after an air dash.  So when you do
jump or air dash, try to land behind a wall.  The wall will protect you from
attacks.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LIGHTNING SKY MODELS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Shiner
 Location: Bogey's Cafe - Back Room
 Day Five: Don and Bogey

The Lightning Sky model is the newest addition to the custom robo line.  It 
can attack and change directions while doing an air dash.  It can only air 
dash once, but it travels for a long time.  It almost looks like it's flying!
However, it moves really slowly on the ground.  It's got a low defense, and
that's its weakness.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AVERAGE SIZE OF A HOLOSSEUM

THE POD GRAPH
 Given by: Sophie
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

Right, so let's chat about... the pod graph!  It's on the Customize Robo
screen.  ATK is attack.  You could probably have figured that out on your own.
It shows how much damage your pod does when it hits.  The higher the bar, the
more damage.  Got it?  Oh, and SPD is speed.  It shows how fast your pod
moves.  The higher the bar, the faster the pod.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE GUN GRAPH
 Given by: Walt
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

Let's talk about the gun graph.  That should be interesting.  It's on the
Customize Robo screen.  ATK shows how much damage the gun will inflict.  The
higher the ATK bar, the more damage the gun does.  SPD shows the speed of the
fired rounds.  The higher the bar, the more quickly the gun's rounds move.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON THE GUN GRAPH
 Given by: Woman
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

Let me tell you about the gun graph.  There's nothing more interesting than 
the gun graph!  HMG stands for homing.  It shows how long the round follows 
its target.  The higher the bar, the longer it pursues its target.  RPD is 
short for "rapid fire," which is just a fancy way of saying how fast the gun 
fires.  The higher the bar, the faster the gun's rounds fire.  DWN is the 
gun's knockdown power.  That's how good the gun is at knocking robos down.  
The higher the bar, the more force the gun's rounds have.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIZE OF A CUSTOM ROBO
 Given by: Girl
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

You've probably noticed, but custom robos remain in cube form until they go
into battle.  Once a robo transforms, it's only about 30 centimeters tall.
Just so you know.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE BOMB GRAPH
 Given by: Girl
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

...All right, I'll tell you something more useful.  Have you seen the bomb
graph?  Check on the Customize Robo screen.  You'll see ATK, which is how much
damage a bomb does.  Obviously, the higher the bar is, the more damage your
bomb does.  SPD shows the speed at which the bomb moves.  The higher the bar,
the faster the bomb moves toward its target.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON THE BOMB GRAPH
 Given by: Girl
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

Let me tell you a bit about the bomb graph.  It's on the Customize Robo 
screen!  SIZ refers to a bomb's blast radius.  That's how big the area 
affected by the bomb will be.  The higher the bar, the bigger the blast 
radius.  TIM refers to the blast time.  That's how lonmg the blast effect 
will remain after the bomb explodes.  Same deal here, too.  The higher that 
bar is, the longer the blast sticks around.  DWN is the bomb's knockdown 
power.  That's sort of like how much force the bomb has.  The higher the bar, 
the more knockdown force the explosion has, you know what I mean?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON THE POD GRAPH
 Given by: Boy
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

Do you know much about the pod graph on the Customize Robo screen?  HMG means
"homing."  That's how far a pod will chase its target.  The higher the bar, 
the longer it chases its target.  SIZ refers to the size of the pod's blast.  
A higher bar means a bigger blast.  TIM is the amount of time the blast 
remains after the bomb detonates.  Again, the higher the bar is, the longer 
the blast lasts.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE ROBO GRAPH
 Given by: Boy
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

Mmm?  Oh, yeah... Let me tell you a little something about the robo
customization.  On the robo graph, SPD stands for speed.  The higher the bar,
the faster your robo can move.  SKY means your robo's aerial abilities.  
That's how well it moves in the air.  Same deal here--the higher the bar, the 
better its maneuverability in the air.  ATK stands for attack.  It's your 
robo's base attack strength.  The higher the bar, the more damage your robo 
can do.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON THE ROBO GRAPH
 Given by: Boy
 Situation: Before the tournament
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

I'll explain the robo graph on the Customize Robo screen.  DWN is endurance.
It shows how much abuse a robo can take before it's knocked down.  The higher
the bar, the harder it is for the robo to get knocked down.  DEF is defense,
the amount of damage a robo can take.  The higher the bar, the less damage
your robo takes from attacks.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ADVANCED CHARGE STRATEGIES
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Will
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

When you charge by using the X Button, your robo is invincible while it is lit
up.  If you time your charge right, you can approach your opponent while
dodging his attacks.  Watch out, though--you'll be vulnerable to attacks right
before and after you charge.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ADVANCED AIR DASH STRATEGIES
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Don
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

You can use the air dash in a bunch of different ways.  You can pretend you're
gonna land and then fool 'em with a feint, or you can charge right in!  You
can also dodge bullets if you time it right, but you'll be vulnerable when you
land.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AERIAL BEAUTY MODELS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Mary
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

The Aerial Beauty model moves excellently in the air.  It can't do an air 
dash, but it can do something called a continuous jump.  It can move quicker 
than a Shining Fighter, but its offense and defense are lower.  If you're 
using an Aerial Beauty, you're not going to attack directly.  Instead, 
you'll probably spend a lot of time dodging and moving to get the best 
position.  Marcia's Milky Way is also an Aerial Beauty model.  She's told me 
that's how she fights.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ADJUSTING WHERE YOUR BOMBS FALL
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Evil
 Location: Gym
 Day Six: Tournament at the Gym

To change where your bomb is targeting, hold the R Button and move the Control
Stick.  Some bombs change their drop zone.  You can use them to block your
opponent's path.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
COMBOS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting ???
 Location: Bogey's Cafe - Back Room
 Day Nine: First Encounter

It won't do you any good if you use the gun, bombs, and pods separately.  Your
opponent'll be moving fast.  It's gonna try to dodge your attacks.  You have 
to figure out a way to block your opponent, stop him from moving, or hit him!
Surround him with a pod, then fire a bomb and finish him off with the gun.
It's easy.  Sorta.  'Course, this all depends on what weapons you've outfitted
your robo with, you know.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FUNKY BIG HEAD MODELS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Will and Wendy
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

The Funky Big Head model has excellent defense and aerial capabilities.  It 
can also do a continuous jump.  However, it moves really slow on the ground.
That's why when you use this type, you should jump constantly and attack from
the air.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DODGING RAPID SHOTS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Anthony and Thomas
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

I'm gonna tell you how to deal with rapid fire, like from the gatling gun.

MAKING BOMBS FLY FARTHER
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Police and Police
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

If you tilt the Control Stick toward your opponent and press the R Button, the
bomb will fly far.  Hold the R Button while tilting the Control Stick.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DIFFERENT CHARGES
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Carmen and Walt
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

Every robo has a totally different charge ability when you press the X Button.
You should try out all kinds of robo charges and plan them out.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LITTLE RAIDER MODELS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Waiter and Bogey
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

The Little Raider model can move real quickly on the ground.  It's aerial
abilities are high, too, but its defense is unbelievably low.  It gets knocked
down easily.  When you're using this type of robo, it's best to move as much
as you can.  Don't ever stop.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CIRCLE AROUND YOUR FOE
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Mira and Roy
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

When you approach enemies from the air, circle around them.  Never fly
straight toward them.  That way, you can dodge any incoming fire while you're
circling.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GROUND AND AERIAL ATTACKS
 Given by: Evil
 Situation: Before fighting Evil
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

Some guns and bombs change abilities when they're fired during a jump.  You
didn't know, did you?  Give yourself a little variety by switching between
ground and air attacks.  Take it from me.  Aren't you happy I shared that?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DIFFERENT BLAST EFFECTS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Ernest
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Ten: Tournament at Police Squad HQ

You'll see a letter marker, like D or C, next to the names of bombs and pods.
That indicates what type of blast effect that weapon has.  Got it?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOW-AIR DASHES
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Police
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Eleven: The Truth

While you're on the ground, press the A Button rapidly to do a low-air dash.
It's a good way to move quickly without having to move too high into the air.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USE OBSTACLES TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Police
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Eleven: The Truth

Be sure to use the holosseum's obstacles to your advantage when you're
attacking.  Lob bombs over walls, or try shooting from behind a wall while
doing a short jump.  You're vulnerable right after you fire your gun, so it's
good to hide behind a wall until it passes.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DODGING HOMING ROUNDS
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Linda
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Eleven: The Truth

Dodge slow rounds with strong homing abilities by letting them come in really
close to you.  Once it closes in on you, just jump over the incoming attack!
Don't forget, though: you'll be vulnerable right when you land, so try to be
careful.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SYSTEM OVERLOAD
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Roy
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Eleven: The Truth

When two robos fire guns at one another and one of the robos is knocked down,
that's called a system overload.  What that means is, if you fire your gun and
knock his robo down before he hits you... The other robo's rounds vanish,
and you won't get hit by his rounds!  If you use the system overload to your
advantage, you'll stand a good chance of winning.  Don't forget, though... You
can only overload a robo's system with your gun...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AVOIDING MIRA'S BOMB-POD COMBO
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Mira
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Eleven: The Truth

Be careful around the four corners of the holosseum.  If she fires pods from
both sides and a bobm from above, you'll have nowhere to run.  Make sure you
keep moving, and stay away from the corners.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MORE ON THE SYSTEM OVERLOAD
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Chief
 Location: Police Squad HQ - Training Room
 Day Eleven: The Truth

If your opponent has a gun with a slow rate of fire, it's best to rush in
directly and go for a system overload.  For example, if your opponent has a
hornet or a rayfall gun, that's a good time for an overload.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DODGING GUNFIRE WITH A CONTINUOUS JUMP
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Z Lackey
 Location: Z's Hideout - Lounge
 Day Thirteen: Attack on Z's Lair

If you want to dodge gunfire from a continuous jump, let the shots come in 
real close and jump once.  If you're constantly jumping, you won't be able to 
dodge any other shots fired at you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LIGHTNING SKY STRATEGY
 Given by: Harry
 Situation: Before fighting Shiner
 Location: Z's Hideout - Hallway
 Day Thirteen: Attack on Z's Lair

Let me tell you a little about Shiner's Lightning Sky model.  With the
Lightning Sky model, you can rush your opponent aggressively with an air dash.
However, when you land after an air dash, you become extremely vulnerable.
Also, you can only do one air dash.  If you see him dashing around a lot,
you'll have a chance to hit him when he lands.  And if you're ever going to 
use a Lighting Sky model... Be sure to hide behind a wall after an air dash.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
COMBOS

 Day Thirteen: Attack on Z's Lair

A combo is a chained attack.  Blow your opponent away with a bomb or pod and
finish with a gun.  For example, hit your opponent with a Straight Bomb G and
fire your Vertical Gun.  This will knock your opponent down right away.

SHORT-JUMP SHOOTING

 Day Thirteen: Attack on Z's Lair

Sometimes, don't you just want to attack as soon as you're in the air?  When
you want to do that, lightly tap the A Button for a short jump.  When you want
to do a quick aerial shot, press both the A and B Button simultaneously.

PLACING PODS
 Given by: Mira
 Situation: Before fighting Z Lackey
 Location: Z's Hideout - Training Room
 Day Thirteen: Attack on Z's Lair

When using pods that need to be set, such as the Spider and Satellite, spread
them out...  Your opponent'll have a hard time moving around if you place 
three pods in his way...  Don't place them too close or far from each other.

That's practically all of the tips you'll find in-game.  Good luck!
