    You're reading a DarkChips FAQ for EXE5. Why? Because DarkChips are now a
    fundamental part of the game. Even players who prefer the Light side of Rockman
    and are perfectionists who wish to keep their HP at 1000 may be using DarkChips
    for one reason or another. It's all in Capcom's innovative modifications to
    the DarkChips system in EXE5 as opposed to EXE4's system of getting DarkChips
    only when you're in Anxious Emotion Mode. Overall, not the most balanced of
    systems, but it has improved a lot.
    Read on.

         |_*_ Section 1 - Changes from Rockman EXE4's DarkChip System _*_|
    Most readers of this FAQ should know how Rockman EXE4's DarkChips worked. The
    crappy, untested system which either made you neglect DarkChips throughout the
    game, or took away all of your skill, since they offered DarkChips at the start
    of every battle if you kept using them. Stupid system. It got a major overhaul,
    and now it actually intergrades into the game in such a way that it is a must
    for every player, or is at least usable by everyone without negative consequen-
    If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then it's about time you read the
    EXE4 FAQs...fine, I'll explain.
    In Rockman EXE 4, you had the Emotions System, where Rockman gains FullSynch,
    Anger Mood and all that. One of them - Anxious Mood - was triggered when you
    got hit a number of times without you attacking back. Once this mood is active,
    you will be able to select from two randomly chosen DarkChips from your Custom
    Menu, as your 9th and 10th chips. You can only select one DarkChip, and no other
    chips with it. Using it in battle...you use it, then you get a glitch depending
    on the type of DarkChip. After the battle, you will permanently lose 1 HP (If
    you save, that is). There is a Karma System (Still implemented in EXE5) which
    calculates your Karma based on the number of battles you win with/without
    DarkChips. If you used a DarkChip in 5 consecutive battles, then you would
    become "Tainted", and will be able to use DarkChips right at the start without
    getting Anxious Mood (Because you're in DarkSoul Mode already).
    That was EXE4. Going back to EXE5. In EXE5, DarkChips are now obtainable as
    chips themselves - they're actually listed in the Library. These have a set 
    code and can be placed into your Folders, and act as normal chips, only with 
    the Dark effects. As with EXE4, when you used a DarkChip in battle, you would 
    turn Dark, and will become glitched. After the battle, the 1 HP penalty is 
    registered if you save. Same old, same old.
    However, there is a way to use DarkChips without getting all of those side
    effects, HP loss included. In addition to the normal Soul Unisons, other Dark
    Soul Unisons have been implemented into EXE5. These are known as "Chaos Soul
    Unisons", and basically Dark forms of the normal Soul Unison. This will be
    explained later, but in general, Chaos Soul Unisons will allow you to replicate
    the effect of the DarkChip of that Soul's attribute (Eg - Chaos MagnetSoul for
    DarkThunder)...but it's really just a gamble that will either propel you to
    victory or create a powerful adversary who will fight against you for a while.
    (Around 13 seconds) [efire_ - Thanks for pointing out the mistake here, but 
    your info wasn't entirely correct :p]. It's all fun. Moving on.

         |_*_ Section 2 - The twelve fragments of Darkness _*_|
    Sounds sort of like the '5 Fragments' in EXE4, doesn't it? It's the same idea.
    You have Dark, evil chips. Within them are powers beyond imagination (Or just
    really cheap attacks). But there's a cost, as with all of these thingys they
    throw in anime and games. "You can't use this cursed Nebilim or you'll have a
    status effect in battle!".
    There are a total of 12 DarkChips. Although all twelve are both readily avail-
    able in both Team Protoman and Team Colonel, only six can be used for Chaos
    Soul Unisons (As there are exclusive Souls). This is why only the Chaos Soul
    Unisons are separated into ToB/ToC. Anyhow, each of the twelve DarkChips are
    of a different attribute - there are twelve attributes excluding Neutral, if
    you haven't noticed.
    As said before, all of these DarkChips are to be placed in your Folder, and can
    be selected for use or for Chaos Soul Unisons. Using the chip will glitch Rock
    for the rest of the battle and lower your Karma level, as well as deducting 
    1 HP from your total -MAXIMUM- HP permanently. (So yes, you lose 1 HP for the
    rest of the game. There's only enough HP Memories to get you 1000HP, so any
    DarkChips you use will take your total potential HP below 1000)
    If in battle, you use a DarkChip your Status Icon will change to a sprite of
    the tainted Rockman (Purple background, all those poisonous clouds etc. Capcom
    needs to get rid of that x.x), and it should flash (Indicating that you've used
    a DarkChip in that battle. If you're just plain tainted with >100 Karma, then
    you won't be flashing). If you 'die' (Go to/below 0 HP), Rockman will
    automatically go into Berserker Mode (See [BSR]). It sucks, so it's not a big
    The limit for DarkChips is 3 per Folder...not that you really NEED 3.
    Chips Ahoy!...*Runs*
         ) DarkChip #1 - DarkSword (
        Chip Name: DarkSword
        ChaosSoul: ChaosBluesSoul [Team Protoman] (See [CSP1])
      Counterpart: DreamSword PA
        Attribute: Sword
             Code: Z
           Damage: 400
            Range: [_][_][_][X][X][_] R = Rockman
                   [_][_][R][X][X][_] X = DarkSword Range
      Description: Essentially a souped up DreamSword. Rockman slashes the 6 panels
                   in front (2x3) with a Purple DarkSword, dealing 400 to all 
                   enemies and objects within its range.               
           Glitch: - DudBuster -
                   3/8 times, your Buster will fire out 'blanks' (As in, it clicks
                   and you don't fire anything). It's not a problem, but it does
                   affect Charged Shots.
    How to Obtain: After Day 2 (Shademan's Scenario), you can buy DarkSword from a 
                   man at the SciLab Docks for 500Z.
            Power: ****  (4/5)
         Accuracy: ****  (4/5)
       Usefulness: ***** (5/5)
         ) DarkChip #2 - DarkThunder (
        Chip Name: DarkThunder (DarkThunderBall)
        ChaosSoul: ChaosMagnetSoul [Team Protoman] (See [CSP2])
      Counterpart: ThunderBall
        Attribute: Electric
             Code: M
           Damage: 200
     Add. Effects: Paralysis, Affects enemies in OceanPanels.
            Range: [_][_][_][_][_][O] R = Rockman
                   [_][_][_][_][_][^] O = Opponent
                   [_][R][>][>][>][^] >,^ = Movement of ThunderBall (Homing)
      Description: When used, Rockman will release a DarkThunderBall. This acts just
                   like a normal ThunderBall - it will travel forwards and home in
                   on the enemy. It can move in all 4 directions, but it moves
                   fairly slowly and will disappear after a while if it doesn't hit
           Glitch: - Custom Menu HP Drain: LV1 -
                   When you go to the Custom Menu, Rockman will start to drain HP
                   at a slow rate (LV1). This will occur until you press OK and
                   close the Custom Menu.
    How to Obtain: After Day 2 (Shademan's Scenario), go to SciLab Docks and find a
                   woman standing near a large brown crate. She will quiz you with
                   5 questions and upon completion, you will be rewarded with 
                   DarkThunder. [The NPC is the "Quiz Apprentice"]
            Power: **    (2/5)
         Accuracy: ***   (3/5) [Far too slow...]
       Usefulness: ****  (4/5)
         ) DarkChip #3 - DarkTwister (
        Chip Name: DarkTwister (DarkTornado)
        ChaosSoul: ChaosGyroSoul [Team Protoman] (See [CSP3])
      Counterpart: Tornado
        Attribute: Wind
             Code: T
           Damage: 50 x 8
            Range: [There are 3 possible ranges]
                   [_][_][_][_][_][_] R = Rockman
                   [_][R][_][X][_][_] X = DarkTwister Range
                   [_][_][_][_][_][_] R = Rockman
                   [_][R][X][X][_][_] X = DarkTwister Range
                   [_][_][_][X][_][_] R = Rockman
                   [_][R][X][X][X][_] X = DarkTwister Range
      Description: When DarkTwister is used, the second panel in front of Rockman
                   will be hit with a Twister - this doesn't cause flinching, so
                   it will hit that panel 8 times, causing stunning each hit (With-
                   out SuperArmour). How/why the range changes has not been verifed
                   but it is either the # of glitches, your Karma level etc.
                   Note that it will NOT be affected by panels, unlike the normal
                   Tornado Chip.
           Glitch: - Custom Penalty - [Thanks to Shift Breaker for this info]
                   After you use DarkTwister, you will lose 100 HP each time you
                   open the Custom Menu, as a 'penalty' for using DarkChips. Note
                   that you will lose HP EVERY time until the battle ends. You'll
                   be left with 1 HP if you don't have 100 HP when you enter the
                   Custom Menu.
    How to Obtain: After the 3rd Day (Cloudman's Scenario), go to the Oran Island
                   Mines. In "Area 6" of the Mine Maze in the -Real World-, there
                   will be a Scientist (He's at a dead end). He'll sell you 
                   DarkTwister for 500Z.
                    [Thanks goes to Vlad Tepes for correcting above information]
            Power: ******(6/5) [DoublePoint + DarkTwister + Atk+30 + Atk+10 x2 +
                                FullSynch = 160 x 8 x 2 = 2560 Damage. Ouch.]
         Accuracy: *     (1/5)
       Usefulness: ****  (4/5)
         ) DarkChip #4 - DarkMeteor (
        Chip Name: DarkMeteor
        ChaosSoul: ChaosNapalmSoul [Team Protoman] (See [CSP4])
      Counterpart: None (Resembles EXE3 Rand/Hole/ShotMeteor & EXE4 Meteors1/2/3)
        Attribute: Heat
             Code: F
           Damage: 100 x 10
     Add. Effects: Affects enemies in OceanPanels. Panels hit become Holes.
            Range: [_][_][_][X][X][X] R = Rockman
                   [_][R][M][X][X][X] M = MeteorTower
                   [_][_][_][X][X][X] X = Meteor "Range" (It targets all panels
                                          your opponents are on)
      Description: When used, Rockman will stand still until the first meteor lands
                   - although this isn't much of a problem when thousands of 
                   meteors follow it. Invis would be nice. Meteors will home in and
                   ONLY hit the panels your opponent is/was on, including your own 
                   panels. The panel that will be hit will flash yellow for a while
                   before the meteor hits it, only one Meteor can land at a time 
                   (So there is an order for the panels that get hit, although it's
                   only a difference of a fraction of a second). Other than that, 
                   you won't need any other chips. Just ChaosNapalmSoul [CH4].
                   In addition to that, the panels hit will become holes.
           Glitch: - Custom Menu HP Drain: LV1 -
                   When you go to the Custom Menu, Rockman will start to drain HP
                   at a slow rate (LV1). This will occur until you press OK and
                   close the Custom Menu.
    How to Obtain: On the 5th Day (Cloudman's Scenario), a girl on the Cruise Ship
                   will sell you DarkMeteor for 3000Z. She is a stupid one.
            Power: ***** (5/5) [Depends on # of hits, and that's random]
         Accuracy: ****  (4/5) [Unless your opponent is a Netbattler who moves
                                constantly, at least 3 Meteors will hit]
       Usefulness: ***** (5/5) [It. Pwns. Everything. From. Cloudman. To. You.]

        Chip Name: DarkCircle
        ChaosSoul: ChaosSearchSoul [Team Protoman] (See [CSP5])
      Counterpart: CircleGun
        Attribute: Seeking
             Code: R

                                              cursor that are hit as well.
                                      X = Other panels that could be targetted
      Description: When used, time will be frozen. A cursor will appear on your
                   opponent's panels, and will keep moving around the outer panels
                   of your opponent's area - the panels in the middle will not be
                   affected at all. Press A to stop the cursor. When stopped, the
                   panel that the cursor stops on will be 'locked', AND 3 more
                   targets will appear on the next 3 panels (See Diagram). All 4
                   panels will be hit for 300 each. (If a VDoll is hit at the same
                   time as your opponent, VDoll's CUrse will still hit for 600,
                   dealing a total of 900 damage).
           Glitch: - Custom Penalty - [Thanks to Shift Breaker for this info]
                   After you use DarkTwister, you will lose 100 HP each time you
                   open the Custom Menu, as a 'penalty' for using DarkChips. Note
                   that you will lose HP EVERY time until the battle ends. You'll
                   be left with 1 HP if you don't have 100 HP when you enter the
                   Custom Menu.
    How to Obtain: [I don't know who to credit. Game Jester for posting it again,
                    at least. Probably Zekiryo for original discovery. Thanks goes
                    to whoever really found it]
                   Near the end of the game, when you enter the Nebula Base, there
                   will be a console behind three of your teammates. Plug in and
                   grab the BMD to get DarkCircle.

      Description: Using DarkRecovery heals you 1000 HP. Simple. If you have less
                   than 1000 damage, or your maximum HP is 1000 or less, then you
                   will be healed to full HP.
           Glitch: - HP Drain in Battle: LV3 -
                   Once used, Rockman will receive the HP Drain LV3 Glitch - the
                   highest level of HP Drain glitch-wise. This'll bring your HP
                   down very, very quickly, so don't bother with DarkRecovery.

                   in End Area 2. Talk to him, and he'll give you DarkRecover H...

      Description: When used, Rockman will hit the two panels in front of him with
                   a DarkDrill. Your opponent will be knocked back ONE panel on
                   first impact - that means your opponent must be in front of you
                   for maximum damage. Fan may help. If your opponent gets knocked
                   onto the drill again, he/she will receive the same amount of

                   chip, for that matter.
                   When you use it, Rockman will pause whilst Rockman DS takes over

                   AI takes over. Rockman has INFINITE DarkChips, but he uses
                   DarkSword at least half the time...sometimes on the back row.
                   -_-. But, when it does use something powerful, like DarkWide...
                   and everything else until your opponent dies. Note that the only
                   thing Rockman DS will do is use DarkChips. When one turn has
                   passed - ie. Custom Gauge is full, Rockman will flash white and
                   will revert to himself...and will be controlled by the player.

                   damage), Rockman will glow green for a moment, and your next
                   chip will receive a +50 damage boost. This means you can't use

         |_*_ Section 3 - Embrace the Darkness - Chaos Soul Unisons _*_|
    One of the newest (And more brilliant) systems implemented into EXE5 - Chaos
    Soul Unisons. Each of the Soul Unisons (All 12 of them - 6 exclusive to each
    version) have a Chaos version, or a Dark Version.
    To activate Chaos Soul Unisons, you must 'sacrifice' the corresponding DarkChip
    (Of the same attribute as the Soul Unison). Note that you are allowed to select
    any other chips as per usual, as well as OTHER DarkChips should you wish to.
    The first thing you'll have noticed with Chaos Soul Unisons would be the change
    in colour for the Soul Unison's Sprite. Most of them are either Purple/Green.
    That's a minor difference. Take a look at the Soul Unison Counter (Emotion
    Mode Window). You have just ONE turn with the ChaosSoul Unison (This can NOT
    be increased with SoulTime +1 NCPs)
    Any non-charge buster related Soul Abilities, such as GyroSoul's OmniShoes, 
    will be carried over to the ChaosSoul. They are no different. The main differe-
    nce is the Charged Buster. Instead of being the normal Charged Buster, such as 
    BluesSoul's WideSword or NumberSoul's DiceBomb, you have a strange 'dark' 
    charged buster. Please don't play with this yet.
    The main point of Chaos Soul Unisons is to allow you to use the Soul's DarkChip
    without getting ANY of the bad Side Effects, glitches included. As with all 
    Dark Weapons, there's a risk to it.
    The DarkChip Charged Buster (Yes, CHARGED BUSTER) is a very, very shape double-
    edged Sword. If you time it correctly every time, then it becomes an invaluable
    addition to your arsenal, and you'll annihilate SP Navis with ease. If you 
    don't...get ready to take a crapload of damage.
    ~ Important: Charged Buster Information ~
    Your Charged Buster has THREE modes.
    - Green.    You're safe; Your Buster is Charging. Get ready to release when it
                changes to Purple. If you let go now, you'll just fire a normal
                Buster Shot.
    - Purple.   This is the crucial point. You MUST let go now (You have a bit less
                than a second to do so). If you let go before it changes colour 
                again then you'll use that DarkChip straight away.
    - Flashing. It's flashing Green, then Purple, then Green. If you release it when
                it flashes Purple, then you'll use your DarkChip. Releasing it when
                it's green...you summon Rockman DS. Poo.
                [Thanks only to Markmesterio. Nothing for those people who argued
                 over nothing for no reason.]
                There are TWO ways to get rid of your Charged Buster if you don't
                want to risk having Rockman DS pummel you:
               - Go to the Custom Menu
               - Use ANY Chip
    If all goes well and you release your charged buster in the fraction of a second
    in between Green and Flashing, then you've unleashed hell, DarkChip style. Note
    that ALL of the DarkChips retain their normal damage, but cannot be powered up
    (So DarkTwister will keep the 50 x 8, but you can't power it up with chips or
    GyroSoul [As you have to use DarkTwister for ChaosGyroSoul -_-]).
    If you don't, then Rockman DS will appear.
         ) Rockman DS (DarkSoul) (
    Description: Rockman's Dark Counterpart - created by the evil peoples of the
                 evil world for no apparent reason other than "Oh noes we haev nu
                 1 as pwerfal as Rockman lolol letz maek a chaep verson of hems"
                 Appears when you've ****ed up and mistimed the ChaosSoul Charged
                 Buster. You will be stunned for a millisec or so whilst Rockman DS
                 spawns on your opponent's panels and attempts to kill you.
             HP: None. Cannot be hit in any way.
    Deleting DS: Impossible. He cannot be harmed, and will not disappear from the
                 battle until either you defeat the Viruses or Navi you were 
                 fighting in the first place, or after 30 seconds or so. Think of 
                 Rockman DS as an annoying Yoh Clone who tries to kill you whilst
                 in God Mode. *Runs*
                 Any attack performed on Rockman DS will go RIGHT through, so he
                 doesn't actually block the way.
       Attack #1: - Vulcan Buster -
                 Rockman DS will stand still for a second or so, then fire off his
                 charged buster repeatedly, dealing massive damage should you stand
                 still. It does not cause flinching, so it will hit multiple times.
                 Each time, Rockman will fire his Vulcan Buster thrice, dealing
                 damage per shot.
       Attack #2: - Random Chippage -
                 Rockman DS is stupid. He will use chips every once in a while,
                 usually after 4-5 Vulcan Buster Bursts. Usually, he uses generic
                 chips like Cannon, EnergyBomb, AirHock, AirWheel and such, but
                 he will use things like Shademan. On the back row. -.-
    Other Notes: Rockman DS moves/teleports very quickly when he's attacking, and
                 will always atttack after moving (Usually with his Vulcan Buster).
                 Your opponent -can't- go on any of the panels in their field -
                 since it's all AI programmed, Rockman DS will probably move out of
                 the way to compensate. Anyhow he will keep attacking and will
                 probably do like...200 damage alone before his vanishes.
                 Remember, you're up against him AND all of the other enemies.
                 If you're playing a Liberation Mission Battle where you have Virii
                 on both sides, Rockman DS can freely teleport from side to side,
                 making him slightly more annoying.
                 Remember, it's YOUR fault Rockman DS is on the field. Suffer...
                 kinda. He's too weak to make you suffer. Try Invis if you really
                 have problems.
    You can have your very own Rockman DS...only it's FAR better. Meet Rockman:
    Berserker Mode.
    *Note that this is not the same as -Rockman DS-. Rockman -Berserker- Mode is
     triggered by -DarkChips-, Rockman DS by a failed -ChaosUnison Charged Buster-*
         ) Rockman: Berserker Mode (
    Description: It's the same Rockman DS, only he takes over Rockman and fights
                 as an AI player. Sucks at aiming, but the massive chip damage
                 If you use a DarkChip in battle, your icon will become that purple
                 tainted thing (With Rock and all those purple clouds of evilness)
                 and should flash. If you go to/below 0 HP, then you don't lose.
                 Nope. You get your DS counterpart to merge with you. Isn't that
                 clever? "OH NOES I'M GUNNA DAI!!! I OUGHT TO LET MY DARK SIDE
                 Anyhow, Once DS takes over, he will be AI controlled and will
                 be impervious to almost all attacks, and will spam DarkChips and
                 his CrapBusterEX. Literally.
       Duration: 13 seconds, give or take. It should be 15, but I guess Capcom cut
                 it short. At 10 seconds, Rockman will start flashing white. This
                 is a good time to pull up the Custom Menu (Yes!)
                 When Rockman turns back to normal, he will have ONE HP. It doesn't
                 matter if you won the battle, or if the enemies are still alive.
                 You have 1 HP.
        Attacks: - DarkSword  [DC1]
                 - DarkMeteor [DC4]
                 - DarkDrill  [DC8]
                 - DarkLance  [DC10]
                 - DarkWide   [DC12]
                 - Possibly any other chips in your Folder that you've used before.
                   - ChaosVulcan...Crap Edition -
                 Rockman can fire his Buster repeatedly, using it as a Vulcan like
                 Napalmman's in Liberation Missions. The only problem is that the
                 Vulcan only does 1 damage (Unconfirmed. It may do 1 damage because
                 of the lack of Atk+1, or it may be set to 1 damage). Rockman will
                 fire it in bursts of 6 shots, but he can spam it. =o.
    Other Notes: Rockman: Berserker Mode WILL be able to teleport from panel to
                 panel, and he will use a DarkChip/Buster upon every teleport.
                 You will not lose additional HP from using Berserker Mode. You
                 either lose 1HP for using DarkChips in the battle, or none if you
                 were already in Tainted Mode and did not use a DarkChip during
                 the battle.
       Weakness: [Thanks to Shift Breaker]
                 Apparently, if you are hit by a time-freezing chip that does NOT
                 have a damage counter but does damage, then Rockman DS will be
                 deleted. This includes the Django chip series, Gun Del Sol series
                 and Areagrab/Panelgrab.

    Moving onto Chaos Soul Unison Descriptions. Yay.
    [Note that some of the normal Soul Abilities do not apply to the ChaosSoul
     Unisons, and have been completely omitted. Refer to the Soul Unisons Guide for
     information on the normal Souls.]
    First we begin with the Chaos Soul Unisons for Team Protoman, which, as stated
    previously, are the Chaos counterparts of the 6 Soul Unisons obtainable from
    Team Protoman's exclusive 6 Navis. 
          These are: Protoman    ->   ChaosProtoSoul    [CSP1]
                     Magnetman   ->   ChaosMagnetSoul   [CSP2]
                     Gyroman     ->   ChaosGyroSoul     [CSP3]
                     Napalmman   ->   ChaosNapalmSoul   [CSP4]
                     Searchman   ->   ChaosSearchSoul   [CSP5]
                     Medi        ->   ChaosMediSoul     [CSP6]

       Soul Unison: ChaosBluesSoul
      Game Version: Team Protoman
          DarkChip: DarkSword Z (See [DC1])
         Attribute: Sword
    Charged Buster: (Dark)LifeSword (See [DC1])
     How to Obtain: On Day 10, you will be liberating Dark Blues (2nd time?). After
        [BluesSoul] completing the mission and watching all the cutscenes and so on
                    you will receive BluesSoul.
        [DarkSword] (See [DC1])
    ~ Soul Ability: - #1: StepStrike -
                    BluesSoul/ChaosBluesSoul can change any non-time freezing Sword
                    attribute into a StepSword. When a Sword chip is lined up as
                    your next chip, hold A. Rockman should charge up the chip. When
                    A is released, Rockman will step forwards 2 panels and hit the
                    panel in front with the sword you charged. For example:
                    [_][_][_][_][_][_] @ = Where Rockman was originally
                    [_][@][_][R][X][X] R = Rockman (Stepped forwards)
                    [_][_][_][_][_][_] X = LongSword Hit Range
                    Note that this ability does NOT work on Time-freezing Sword
                    Chips such as Blues/SP.

          Accuracy: **    (2/5) [Takes very good timing...and you have to constantly
                                reposition yourself]
        Usefulness: ****  (4/5) [For Swords at least...loses a point for inability
                                 to affect time-freezing/PA swords]
    ~ Soul Ability: - #2: Reflect -
                    Like Blues himself, BluesSoul also has a Reflect shield (same
                    as the Reflect Navi Customizer Program), which can be triggered
                    by pressing <- and B. If you are hit when said shield is 
                    activated (as in when the Shield animation is displayed), it 
                    will deal 50 damage instantly to the frontmost target in your 
                    row. Note that piercing attacks will go through the shield and 
                    deal damage as per usual.
            Damage: 50 [With successful shielding and target in same row]
             Power: *     (1/5)
             Range: ***   (3/5)

          DarkChip: DarkThunder M (See [DC2])
         Attribute: Elec
    Charged Buster: (Dark)ThunderBall (See [DC2])
     How to Obtain: After you liberate End Area 3 and defeat Shademan, you will
       [MagnetSoul] obtain MagnetSoul, BUT you will not be able to use Chaos-Magnet
                    Soul until you defeat Rockman DS.

    ~ Soul Ability: - #1: Magnet Feet -
                    When your opponent is on the same row as you, you can press <-
                    + B (Same as Shield, only Shield will NOT function at ANY time
                    whatsoever if you're in MagnetSoul). If you're successful, your
                    opponent will be rooted to the panel - a 'magnetic vortex'
                    (like with MagBomb in EXE2) will appear on the panel. Note that
                    it works just like Timpani - your opponent is free to attack
                    (But he/she WILL be stunned when the vortex appears), but
                    cannot move off the panel, regardless of whether he flinches or
                    Rockman's feet will have purple aura thingys surrounding them
                    when this ability is activated, so you can tell whether it was
                    your crappy timing or your crappy hand co-ordination that 
                    messed it up.

                                will probably move off the row before you press it]

    ~ Soul Ability: - #2: EnergyCharge -
                    All Electric Chips will receive a 2x damage boost, regardless
                    of when you use/select it as long as MagnetSoul is active.

         Attribute: Wind

     How to Obtain: After you defeat Rockman DS and get Rockman back, you will
         [GyroSoul] receive GyroSoul (Along with NapalmSoul and the ability to use
                    ChaosSoul Unisons. Note that you will get Gyroman in your team

                    details to reduce spoilers)
      [DarkTwister] (See [DC3])
    ~ Soul Ability: - #1: GaleBooster -
                    GyroSoul/ChaosGyroSoul has a fan, right? You need to get that
                    to spin to get your W/N Chips to do 2x damage (Getting it to
                    spin also makes NORMAL GyroSoul's Charged Buster do +5 damage
                    per hit). To do so, use a Wind Chip WITH a damage value - chips
                    like Wind/Fan don't count. After that, as long as the Fan spins
                    (Rumoured to never stop spinning...), your Wind AND Normal Chips
                    to do double their damage, as long as they have Damage Values.
                    [Thanks to Shift Breaker for the following bit]. When you use
                    your 2x damage Wind/Normal Chip, GyroSoul's fan will cease to
                    spin, and you will need another Wind chip to trigger it again.
            Damage: Damage of Wind/Normal Chip x2

                    fuse the two chips, granting the chip an extra effect. If the
                    effects of the capsule overlap/conflict with the chip's effects
                    then the chip's original effect is foregone.

    ~ Soul Ability: - #1: ColonelArmy -
                    After you place obstacles, if your opponent enters the same
                    row as one of your obstacles, it will transform into a Colonel
                    Soldier (like the chip) and march forwards. If it hits, then it
                    will deal damage and paralyze your opponent. Note that the
                    obstacle used will disappear.

                                 chips may be used in conjunction to hit.]
        Usefulness: ****  (4/5) [Many strategies can use this to their advantage,
                                 including the usage of obstacles like Rockcube.

                    When Rockman uses any offensive chip (with a damage value) that
                    doesn't freeze time in KnightSoul, he will become temporarily
                    invincible during the execution of the chip. In other words, 
                    you can't be hit whilst you use any attack chip - not even by
                    piercing attacks or otherwise.

                    charged up by holding A, doubling the base damage for the chip.

                    This grants the effect SuperArmor, like the Navi Customizer
                    Program. This makes you impervious to chips that cause stunning
                    (not paralysis), meaning you will be able to move when being hit
                    with a Vulcan, or any other chip which normally causes Rockman
                    to flinch. Stacking this with the SuperArmor NCP has no effect.

                    If Rockman's next chip is of the Sword attribute, then it can be
                    charged by holding A. When released, Rockman will teleport 
                    behind the closest opponent and use the chip. Damage done and
                    the range of the chip does not change (meaning ShadowSoul

                    Similar to the Navi Customizer Program AntiDamage, this ability
                    lets you activate AntiDamage for a short period (<1 second), in
                    which if you are hit, AntiDamage is activated and Rockman
                    throws 3 shruikens whilst negating the attack. The shruikens
                    aim for the frontmost opponent.
                    This replaces any Shield/AntiDmg NCPs you have active, meaning
                    you will not be able to Shield with ChaosShadowSoul.

                    when standing on them, such as damage on lava or sliding on
                    ice panels. Identical to the FloatShoes Navi Customizer Program.
