    | different incarnations of the game vary in their moves and mini-games. For  |
    | example, the infamous golden shower fatality in absent in all variations of |
    | the game except the original arcade release. This guide covers only the     |
    | Jaguar CD version of the game, so anything listed here may not apply to     |
    | other versions of the game.                                                 |

    | Special moves are performed differently in Primal Rage than in most two-    |
    | dimensional fighters. Instead of inputing a directional command and then    |
    | pressing a button, Primal Rage has you hold the buttons and then enter a    |
    | directional command. Specific character moves are listed below.             |

     _/ Vertigo \_________________________________________________________________
    |=============================================================================|
    | Long ago a sorceress named Vertigo appeared from another dimension. In a    |
    | great magical battle during the Mesozoic Wars, Vertigo was banished to the  |
    | moon by the arch-mage Balsafas. The meteor crash weakened the old shields   |
    | enough for Vertigo to return and enslave the planet once again. Once        |
    | victorious, she plans to enslave hordes of humans and have them build an    |
    | insane palace in multiple dimensions.                                       |

     _____________________________________________________/ Final Battle Ground \_
    |=============================================================================|
    | If you have the difficulty set to ten or higher you will move on to the     |
    | Final Battle Ground upon initially defeating the six other fighters. Here   |
    | you will fight all six of your opponents again, but this time it will be an |
    | endurance-type match where you have to defeat all six of them, plus a clone |
    | of yourself, on one life bar. If you can do this, then you can truly say    |
    | you've mastered your given character.                                       |

     _/ The Dracolich \___________________________________________________________
    |=============================================================================|
    | Arcade lore, and a Gamepro article, indicated that an update to Primal Rage |
    | was planned that would include a boss fighter to be faced on the moon once  |
    | the seven basic fighters had been defeated. This boss, whose name is not    |
    | known, was to be a dracolich. A dracolich would be the animated bones of a  |
    | dinosaur-like creature. It was described as having a horn, six claws, and   |
    | a spiked tail. It was said to be able to fly and have the ability to suck   |
    | its foe's life and heal itself. Sadly, this never came to be and every      |
    | console version of Primal Rage only includes the seven basic fighters.      |

    |  Selectable from the title screen, Endurace Mode allows you to pick four of |
    |  the fighters and use them against four computer opponents. You begin with  |
    |  your first fighter and battle the computer's first fighter. Whoever wins   |
    |  faces their foe's second fighter, and so on until only one player has any  |
    |  fighters left.                                                             |

    |  Selectable from the title screen, Tug-Of-War pits two fighters against one |
    |  another like normal. The catch here is that the players share the same     |
    |  life bar. By hitting one's foe it moves the life bar in their direction.   |
    |  The match ends when one player fills the bar all the way up in their favor |
