    The Prince of Tennis 2004: Glorious Gold / Stylish Silver 
    Character Unlocking Guide.

    Dedicatory: 
    
    This work is dedicated to Kao Megura, may he rest in peace. He was GameFAQ's
    biggest FAQ writer and contributor, in my opinion and the opinion of many,
    and an inspiration for myself. Four years ago, when I wrote my first FAQ
    ever, it was his work that gave me ideas and guided me. Today, I was informed
    of this unfortunate event, and the news hit me in a strange way. I do not
    know what to think or feel, but regardless of this, Chris MacDonald, you 
    are a legend at GameFAQs.

    1) Introduction
    
    It has come to my attention that several people have been having problems
    with character unlocking in the boards, as well as other details. Since
    a list of how to unlock characters is relatively easy, I decided that it
    wouldn't hurt to submit one, and help the Prince of Tennis loving gamers
    a little. Someone should probably do a FAQ/Move List, too, but that's
    another issue. Well then, without any less delay, here it is. (Please read
    the Credits section)

    2) Unlocking Characters
    
    For simplicity's sake, I'll write them in the following fashion:
    (Character you use) - (Character you unlock). Also, if you see something
    like (Character1/Character2), this means you have to play in doubles using
    both characters. You need to play in Tournament mode to unlock characters.
    
    Also, it must be mentioned that, to unlock some characters, you have to
    beat the game without losing ONE SINGLE POINT in ANY of the 4 matches.
    Hard? Yes. If you are having problems unlocking these characters, I 
    recommend turning the difficulty to easy, double special-shots gauge rate
    of speed to fill, and to constantly use taunts/praises to raise the golden
    bar. Also, save as often as you consider necessary. This is a cheap method,
    I'm aware, but sincerely, it is all too easy to lose one point when using
    Tezuka or Echizen, since their rackets love to jump out of their hands.

    and I have no way to ask for his permission. However, the information 
    provided in this guide has no owner. These are FACTS. Facts are not protected
