Compilated on August 29, 2006 around 8:53am EST and 
finished on September 1, 2006 around 3:50am EST. I got 
the idea of doing this FAQ by playing a little bit of Sega 
Genesis and finding my Eternal Champions cartridge. I've 
been scouring through Gamefaqs and there are no character 
ending FAQs so I decided to do one anyway.


*Failure in defeating the Eternal Champion displays the
bad ending which states:

"Your performance has disappointed me. You are not worthy
of the live beyond the life that fate dealt you. I have no
choice but to return you to your death. This outcome was
not as I had planned.

I doubt I have the energy to bring others back for another
contest. The world is left with little chance.

I must return to my meditation chamber and see if there is
a way to avert the certain disaster that awaits the future.
You have failed ans because of this, the future is in doubt.
My time is over...

And so is yours..."

*Successful in defeating the Eternal Champion displays
the good ending as listed below in the characters' section
with Eternal Champion stating before the ending:

"You have completed the test. You have proven yourself
strong enough to return to the life that was stolen from you.
You will return a few seconds before your death. Use the
knowledge of your fate to change the prior outcome of
your life.

Prepare yourself! You are about to recieve the ultimate!

The balanced must be restablished and it begins now!"
1) Shadow:

Full Name: Shadow Yamoto
Occupation: Ninja Assassin
Time Zone: 1993 A.D.
Fighting Style: Taijitsu, Ninjitsu
Stage Location: Black Orchid Rooftop

Fighting Style:
Tajitsu is a system of unarmed combat similar to jujutsu and 
is a forerunner of modern judo.

Ninjutsu is the feudal Japanese discipline embracing bushido, 
espionage, commando warfare, occult powers and numerous 
martial arts practices. Due to many terrortorial and religous 
wars, Japanese mountain mystics were forced to develop the 
are to protect their families.The ninja, the practitioner of 
ninjutsu is the cultural opposite of the samurai. The ninja 
not only masters traditional weapons, bit its also adept at 
using daggers, dirks, darts, brass knuckles, smoke bombs 
and a variety of poisons.

Shadow was the best corporate assassin in the Black Orchid 
Corporation. She performed many tasks ranging from individual 
elimination jobs to ending large corporate takeovers.

A true star at the Black Orchid headquarters, Shadow never 
thought much about the morality of her career until she learned 
that if a job wasn't completed to corporate satisfaction, a 
person like herself would in turn eliminate her.

When she realized the peril of her own morality, Shadow 
found she couldn'tbring herself to kill others. The corporation 
didn't allow resignations, so they arranged her fall from the 
101st floor of the Black Orchid building. This stopped her 
from telling the world about Black Orchid and corporations 
like it, with all their dark secrets of hired killers. This knowledge 
would have had a huge impact on international business
going into the 21st century.

When Shadow returned, she quickly avoided being
thrown off the roof. She was surprised to learn that her
boss had tricked her into coming to the roof. As she
rolled to her left, her boss overshot her mark and fell off
the building. Shadow immediately went to the police and
was placed under protective custody.

After several attempts on her life, Shadow testified about
her role in the Black Orchid Corporation. This information
saved a great many lives and changed business for the

2) Xavier:

Full Name: Xavier Pendragon
Occupation: Warlock / Alchemist
Time Zone: 1692 A.D.
Fighting Style: Hapkido Cane Fighting
Stage Location: Salem

Fighting Style:
Hapkido is a Korean martial art founded by Yong Shul Choi. 
Its style is a selective combination of several martial arts 
systems: power from Karate, leverage from Judo and Ki 
(spirit) from Akido.

Hapkido is distingushed by three essential techniques: 
passitivity when opposing force, circular movements for 
countering and attacking, and absoloute penetration of the 
oppoenents defences. For instance, if the force is strong, it 
must be met with a soft recpetion; if the force is weak, it must 
be met with a strong reception. This union of techniques 
establishes a fluid and perpetual rhythm as well as constant 
mobility. Almost all hits and defensive actions are performed 
with the cane, which is used in place of arms and legs.

Xavier always made bad career choices, so it was no surprise 
that his last job ended in failure. After nailing still-smoking 
horseshoes onto the mayor's prized workhorse, Xavier found 
himself with a shack full of smithy tools and no job.

Stirred by a love for science, Xavier decided to try his hand 
at the age-old quest for the formula which would turn lead 
into gold.  Instead, he found a way to create an unlimited 
source of cheap, clean-burning energy that would put Salem 
on the map forever in addition, Xavier found his alchemy had 
changed him, giving him strange new powers.

Before he could begin to use this power and document it 
for the good of future generations, Xavier found himself 
bound and gagged as the people of Salem carted him off 
to the town square. There they burned him at the stake 
for the false charge of being a warlock.

While some of Xavier's powers could be mistaken for witch-
craft, they are all based on real science.

When Xavier returned, he realized that there was only
one way out of his situation. He asked his accusers if
his equipment could be burned at the stake with him.
Since they felt the equipment was just as evil as Xavier,
they had no objection. When the unlimited power source
was placed nearby, Xavier held his cane to it and drew the
precious power it held. As Xavier drew power from the
container, a strange wind quickly surrounded him,
protecting him from the flames. The wind moved faster
and faster until Salem itself began to change. Xavier had
moved through the portals of time. He now had the power
to travel through time.

Xavier used his ability to move through the ages, becoming
an expert on world history. He was able to fix key events
in time, allowing the world to become filled with science
and tolerance for the unusual.

3) Trident:

Occupation: Gladiator
Time Zone: 110 B.C.
Fighting Style: Capoeira
Stage Location: Shores of Atlantis

Fighting Style:
This Brazilian fighting style was founded over three 
centuries ago by African slaves. It is believed to have
been originated by blacks in Angola, who performed 
the movements as a religous dance. In the 16th century, 
this "dance" was adpated into a fighting art as a defences 
against the brutal slave traders. Capoeira is beautiful to 
watch because of its graceful cartwheels, handstands, 
handsprings, sweeps and flips. This grace combined with 
strength makes thus art lethal. Practitioners of this art are 
adept and evading attacks and countering with hands and 
feet. The foot motions involve a great deal of leg sweeps, 
leg blocks and kicks while in a handstand.

Trident is so named because of the trident which replaced 
the hand he lost in a duel with a shark.

The people of Atlantis during this time lived above the 
water.  They were competing with the Romans to see 
who would control the Earth's surface, with the loser 
being plunged into the watery depths.

The Atlanteans spent their time in the pursuit of science. 
They realized early on that a major part of the land was 
going to sink into the ocean. To handle this, they built 
great environments that were enclosed in bubbles so that 
they could survive the ocean's depths.

They then offered a fair settlement to the Romans. Half of 
each each culture would stay on land, and the other half 
would go to sea. The Romans would not agree, and would 
only settle the issue through battle. So the Atlanteans had 
no choice but to create a warrior that could stand up against 
the warlike Romans. Trident was their champion.

The Romans rigged the fight and crushed Trident under 
a large stone pillar. With their loss, the Atlanteans were 
forced unnecessarily undersea, and their culture was lost 

When Trident returned, he quickly avoided the falling
pillar. He was then able to face his opponent in a fair fight.
Ultimately, Trident's skill proved too great for the Roman.
As the exact moment of delivering the final death blow,
Trident realized the futility of it all. Not only did he refuse
to finish the Roman, but felt compelled to tell his people
the error of their ways. Trident succeeded in convincing
the Atlanteans and the Romans to work together.

Together they formed a central government using the best
ideas from each culture. Their ideas of government, science
and society spread around the world. The great wars never 
occured because the Atlanteans were nbot only the masters
of the sea, but also of space.

4) Jetta:

Full Name: Jetta Maxx
Occupation: Circus Acrobat
Time Zone: 1899 A.D.
Fighting Style: Savate / Pencak Silat
Stage Location: South China Sea

Fighting Style:
Originating in France, savate, with its foot and fist fighting 
style, emphasizes front side and round kicks to the knee, 
shin and instep. The hands are kept open and low to defend 
against groin kicks. Palm and heel strikes are used to attack 
the face, nose and eyes. Street fighters who practiced the art 
introduced both mid-level and high-level kicks.

-Pencak Silat:
Pencak Silat, the national fighting art of Indonesia, dates 
back to the 6th century A.D. By the 14th century, the form 
was the polished property of the nobility, and commoners 
were barred from learning its tactics. Baru Silat, the Sumaturan 
form, employs hand actions to block, parry and cover.

Jetta was always a rebel: as a youth she changed her given 
Russian name to Jetta Maxx to sound more like a performer.
Born in Russia, cousin to Czar Nicholas II, Jetta traveled the 
world as a performer in a famous international circus. During 
her many travels, which included visits to France and 
Indonesia, she learned gymnastics and martial arts.

In 1899, her circus troop visited China. At the time, China 
was being ripped apart by the Boxer rebellion, the Chinese 
attempt to rid their homeland of foreigners.  Unfortunatly, 
many innocent Chinese were also dying. Spurred by her 
compassion, Jetta decided to help infiltrate the "Yihe 
Quang", or "Rightous Harmony Fists" and get them to 
turn their ways to pacifism before the major foreign powers 
brought all their military forces to bear. In addition Jetta 
foresaw that Russia's involvement in the fighting of the 
East would further weaken her own government's stability. 
Before Jetta was able to bring a peaceful end to the fighting 
and change the history of Russia and China, she fell victim 
to an act of sabotage by a radical from the Yihe Quang. 
Jetta's safety net and tension wire were cut, Jetta plummeted 
to her death during the grand performance for the crown 
emperor of China.

When Jetta returned, she quickly flipped off the high wire
onto the safety of the platform. The saboteur left the
grandstand and tried to escape. He was later captured by
the imperial guards. Embarassed by the incident, the
Chinese government pressured the extremist groups to
turn to more peaceful negotiations. China was then able 
to settle on a peace plan that would give them full demo-
cratic control of their country.

After these changes were in place, Jetta returned to Russia.
Without the threat of war, the Czar was able to focus his
attention on the homeland. Instead of fighting the Socialists,
the Czar negotiated a govenment similar to the one in England.

5) Blade:

Full Name: Jonathan Blade
Occupation: Bounty Hunter
Time Zone: 2030 A.D.
Fighting Style: Kenpo
Stage Location: Syrian Desert Refinery

Fighting Style:
Kenpo teaches its disciples how to manuever so that 
opponents unwittingly place themsleves in vunerable 
positions. It combines linlear and circular moves, using 
intermittent power as needed. Like water, it flows through 
major and minor moves with fluid continuity. It is flexible 
in though as well as action.

Blade was one of the best cops that ever lived in the future.  
Born in Syria, raised in Africa, Blade was dedicated to the 
extreme, working some of the meanest parts of New Chicago.
He had, however, one small problem: his temper. After almost 
being killed several times by a suspect during a case, Blade 
caught up to him. The suspect again tried to kill Blade, who 
was able to sidestep the laser shot and grab the suspect. 
Being only human, Blade was out of patience. He proceeded 
to beat the suspect to near death.  The suspect survived, and 
sued the police. 

The police fired Blade to hush the scandal, and he ended up 
moving back to Syria to become a Bounty Hunter, which 
allowed him better use of his quick temper. His final case 
dealt with a rogue scientist who had escaped a government 
bio-weapons lab. The scientist was threatening to smash 
open a vial containing a virus that would kill 95% of all 
human life if the government didn't stop all bio-research. 

The Syrian government hired Blade to safely retrieve the vial.  
Blade agreed on one condition: they wouldn't interfere. They 
agreed. He cornered the scientist in an alley and radioed that 
the scientist agreed to peacefully give up the vial.  

The government had followed Blade, and took this moment 
to make their move. When shots from laser rifles filled the 
alley the last image that Blade saw before he died was the 
smashed and open vial of the virus.

When Blade returned, he was able to pull the scientist
aside before any serious damage was done. Enraged,
Blade knocked out over twenty govenment agents before
confronting the one who betrayed him. At this point, 
Blade realized that he had accomplished nothing. This
anger was the force that led him to the brink of death.

This world incident led to a number of government reforms.
A world peace council was established with Blade as
president. This council went on to bring peace and
stability to the whole world.

6) Midknight:

Real Name: Mitchell Middleton Knight
Occupation: Bio-Chemical Scientist
Time Zone: 1967 A.D. 
Fighting Style: Jeet Kune Do
Stage Location: Song Hong Delta (Vietnam)

Fighting Style:
This fighting style was conceived by the late martial artist 
Bruce Lee in 1967. It's name literally means "The Way of the 
intercepting fist". Jeet Kune Do, unlike other martial arts, does 
not use a specific set of rules or techniques to establish a 
distinct method. Instead it utilizes all ways and means to 
serve its end, therfore making it "free". As a martial arts 
form it possesses everything, while in itself it possesses 

Mitchell worked for the CIA on loan from Interpol.  Born in 
London, Mitchell was one of the best bio-chemical scientists 
working in the intelligence community.  The CIA needed 
Mitchell to work on a bio-chemical weapon to end the Vietnam 
War. Mitchell created a virus that would weaken its victims 
until they hung near death, waiting for the antidote. The virus 
was to be introduced into the water supply of Vietnam, but 
Mitchell wouldn't stand for that much human destruction. He 
stole back his formula and fled back to London to hide. 
Unfortunately, Mitchell was cornered at the airport by both 
interpol and CIA agents. During the escape, Mitchell fell 
from a nine-story building into a chemical storage used by t
he airport.  The force of the impact broke the seal of the virus 
container and released the virus into the chemical vat. This 
mixture creasted an unexpected result.  Mitchell was trans-
formed by the mixture into a living vampire.  Using his new-
found cunning and strength, Mitchell escaped and fled to 
London where he spent the next 133 years vainly searching 
for a cure for his disease. No longer identifying with his past, 
Mitchell came to be known as Midknight.

The cure had become more important since the goverment 
used the virus during the Vietnam War by using the contents 
of the airport chemical vat. Many of the third-world countries 
were now over-run with living vampires. Midknight was also 
running out of time because his body, with the exception of 
his neck and face, was rotting away.  This rotting was due to 
the fact that Midknight wouldn't kill another person to renew 
his life energy. Midknight was about to solve the last hitch 
in the antidote when a government agent killed him by firing 
a firing a magnesium stake through his heart.

When Midknight returned, he quickly sidestepped his
attacker to avoid the stake through his heart. He then
used his superhuman speed to flash behind his attacker
and drain his life force. Realizing that death was not the
answer, Midknight stopped short of taking the man's
life. Once in a safe haven, Midknight collected what was
left of his lab and departed for Italy.

Midknight restarted his work on a cure for the plague.
After a few months of work, a cure was found. The dis-
covery was bittersweet however, since the cure was
based on his own blood chemistry. So while the cure
worked for others, it did little to cure his affliction. It
stopped his decay, but left him in his current state for-
Midknight became famous for his efforts and became
head of the World Science Organization. His immortality
gave him the experience and wisdom to deal with most of
mankind's major diseases.

7) Rax:

Full Name: R.A.X. Coswell
Occupation: Cyber-Fighter
Time Zone: 2345 A.D.
Fighting Style: Muay Thai Kickboxing
Stage Location: The Cyber-Dome

Fighting Style:
Muay Thai kickboxing is a mixture of powerful kicks and 
devastating body blows. The fighter uses fists, feet, knees 
and elbows to cause damage to the opponent. Kicks deliver 
massive blows to the opponent's legs, knees and thighs, 
making Muay Thai one of the bloodiest fighting styles in 
use today. It ranks as the most popular spectator sport in 

R.A.X. (Robotic Artificial eXoskeleton) is a cyborg.  Once, 
Coswell was one of the best human kickboxers in the year 
2345. Coswell's only problem was that the sport was no 
longer about human competition, but a battle between 
cyborgs, robotically enhanced human beings.  Since the 
cyborgs could take and deliver more damage, the crowds 
began to stop attending the human fights for the excite-
ment provided by these new robotic combatants. Given 
these changes, R.A.X. had no choice but to get cybernetic 
implants and join the crooked game which was run by a 
deceitful fight promoter. R.A.X. didn't trust this promoter, 
but needed his financial support to afford the cybernetic 
implant operation. 

After the operation, R.A.X. rose through the ranks and 
won the right to take on the champion.  He was killed as 
a result of the corrupt fight promoter trading R.A.X.'s life 
for a sure bet on the championship fight. The promoter 
used an advanced electronic virus planted in R.A.X's 
cybernetic brain during the implant operation to shut 
down all of his vital systems.  This shutdown was 
seconds before he was about to deliver the fatal 
blow to the reigning champion.

When R.A.X. returned, he quickly began to overload the
systems in his body. As the ruthless fight promoter pulled
the transmitter from his jacket, R.A.X. fired an energy bolt
from his power generator. The energy blot flew straight
and true to its target, knocking out the promoter and
shorting out the transmitter. As his opponent closed in
on him for a final blow, R.A.X. hit his air jets, avoiding the
devastating punch. R.A.X. quickly countered and knocked
the opponent flat to the mat.

After the fight, R.A.X. had the electronic virus safely
removed. The fight promoter was jailed for attempted
murder. The public, outraged by all the corruption, shut
down the cyborg fights and returned to more human and
more humane competition.

8) Larcen:

Full Name: Larcen Tyler
Occupation: Ex-Cat Burglar
Time Zone: 1920 A.D.
Fighting Style: Praying Mantis Kung-Fu
Stage Location: Chicago Theater

Fighting Style:
This southern style of Kung-Fu was founded in the 17th 
century by Wang Lang. The system relies heavily on fierce 
grasping movements, clawing attacks, kicks and punches 
for both offense and defense. Legend has it that Wang 
Lang once captured a praying mantis. took it home and 
studied it. He then combined the movements of the mantis 
with monkey style Kung-Fu to form his new system.

Born in an era of crime bosses and racketeering, Larcen 
grew respecting and idolizing the many powerful crime 
bosses who ruled the streets.  As a youth, he went to 
work for Mr. Taglalini, one of the most powerful crime 
bosses. Under his wing, Larcen grew up to be one of the 
world's best cat burglars. He did many illegal jobs for Mr.
Taglalini, including the planting of illegal evidence in other 
crime boss hideouts.  There was one thing that Larcen 
wouldn't do, and that was kill.  Instead, he used martial 
arts to stop and drop his attackers.

One day, Mr. Taglalini asked Larcen to plant a package 
on a supposed crime boss who was recovering in the 
hospital.  When he entered the room that supposedly 
contained the boss, he instead found the now recovering 
chief of police, who had been hurt in a prior assassination 
attempt.  It seemed that the mob wanted the chief dead 
because he was incorruptable, and was about to declare 
war on the mob. Larcen suddenly realized that he had 
been set up.  The package he carried probably contained 
a bomb. At this moment, Larcen decided that he had chosen 
the wrong side.  He wouldn't kill.  Larcen attempted to throw 
the bomb out of the window, but it was too late. The bomb 
explosion not only killed both Larcen and the chief, but also 
most of the hospital, including several youngsters in the 
children's wing.

When Larcen returned, he quickly threw the bomb out the
window. Larcen was captured by a couple of policeman
standing guard around the hospitalized police chief. Larcen
was brought to the chief's room. The chief was so impressed
with Larcen's bravery that he made him a member of the
special government task force against organized crime.

After months of prep work, the task force took down Mr.
Taglalini and his organization. Larcen went on to head of 
the task force which eventually widened its scope to
include international cartels. This task force was respon-
sible for eliminating organized crime forever.

9) Slash:

Occupation: Pre-Man Hunter
Time Zone: 50,000 B.C.
Fighting Style: Pain
Stage Location: Great Rift Valley

Fighting Style:
This fighting style uses any move or attack  that will cause 
pain or inflict damage. This includes eye-poking, neck 
throttling, nostril pulling and hair yanking. The most common 
weapon is a large wooden club, which early hunters could
wield very effetively. One technique involves the spinal 
crush, in which the attacker jumps onto a foe and smashes 
the victim's head, compressing the spinal column. Another 
technique uses the "push off" lever for a high two-footed 

Slash was always advanced for a pre-man creature.  He was 
the greatest hunter and the greatest fighter of his generation.  
These skills didn't just come from his great strength, but also 
from the emergence of an early intelligence. Slash used this 
intelligence in his fighting, which meant hecould out-think 
most of his opponents. 

His intelligence also got him into a lot of trouble. The cave 
elders resented Slash for his intelligence, and rejected his 
every idea, including an agricultural plan which would have 
freed the clan from its enslavement to a life of drudgery as 
hunter-gatherers.  The elders turned down this idea at once, 
as they saw no value in having free time and enjoyed the 
violence of the hunt. 

One day, when Slash publicly spoke against the the elders 
in a clan meeting,he was stoned to death by the clan when 
the elders proclaimed him to be an evil force.

When Slash returned, he quickly pulled himself free from
the ropes that held him in place for the stoning. Once he
was free, the clan members attacked him. With his new-
found knowledge, he used their own force to throw them
off balance. Slash finally used a trick from Xavier. He
raised his club into the air and the tip became alive with
fire. The angry crowed backed away in fear. 

Once he had their attention, Slash was able to communicate
his ideas. Eventually, he was appointed to head of the clan.
This small change in pre-man history led to a life of peace
rather than violence. This in turn saved the earth itself
from ravages of war.

My Fighting Game Site:

Props to those who made this guide possible:
Me for physically typing everything from my TV screen.
Once of my favourite games during the whole Sega Genesis/
Super Nintendo timeline era so, I decided to pay homage to 
a good fighting game I played back in the day that wasn't 
released in the arcades. I write too much but I don't feel
tired. I don't make these FAQs for me, I make these FAQs
for you and especially...the fighting game community.
