     1. INTRODUCTION
     ========================================================================
    
     Welcome to my KoF '01 FAQ.  It started off as a basic moves list for a
     friend to use, but it seemed kind of pointless to just forget about
     it afterwards.  This is sort of a one-off deal, and besides, there are
     already a lot of very detailed and in-depth KoF FAQs available from
     www.GameFAQs.com.  Still, I figure one more guide can't hurt ;)
    
     If you have any comments or criticisms, or if you'd like to contribute
     some info., feel free to mail me at (k.megura at eudoramail dot com).
     Just don't ask about emulators or roms or anything, I don't know the
     first thing about that.

     REVISION HISTORY
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                
     Version 0.7  (December 28, 2002)
      - More contributor info. added, as well as some corrections.
    
     Version 0.6  (November 7, 2002)
      - More contributor info. added.
    
     Version 0.5  (July 8, 2002)
      - Some corrections were made, and I added some contributor information.
      
     Version 0.4  (July 4, 2002)
      - A few minor corrections, and I finally confirmed Chang's supercancel.
        
     Version 0.3  (June 30, 2002)
      - The first public release.  Remaining info. for supercancels and
        "wire" moves has been tested and added.  Other misc. info has been
        confirmed.  Ver. 0.3b through 0.3d added a few minor corrections
        and alterations (and here I thought the faq was error-free) :(

      - The second release.  Cancelable attack charts have been finished,
        and other missing info. has been added.  Still more to do; the FAQ
        is about 85% done at this point.
    
     Version 0.1  (June 2, 2002)

     - During a Short Jump, your character will usually do the attack
       animations for a Vertical Jump, even though you you can Short
       Jump diagonally.  The same thing applies to the Running Short Jump.
     - Also note that during either type of Short Jump, there are some
       mid-air command attacks that cannot be used.  However, you can
       still perform mid-air throws and aerial special moves or (S)DMs
       while in air.
     - During the Emergency Evade moves, you are immune to attack while
       rolling, but not as the roll ends.  Also, you are vulnerable to
       being thrown at any point during the roll.
     - The Blow Away Attack will knock down a hit opponent.  You cannot
       use this move while crouching.
     - The "Guard Cancel" moves require 1 level of your Power Gauge to use.
     - Furthermore, you are totally invincible during a Guard Cancel roll.
     - The Guard Cancel Blow Away Attack does no damage.  Furthermore,
       it isn't cancelable like some CD attacks are.
     - For the Basic Throw Escape, you have to press the same button that
       your opponent used to grab you.
     - Taunting can be canceled shortly after the taunt has begun, simply
       by moving around.

     3. TEAM MOVELISTS
     ========================================================================
    
     Moves are listed in this order: normal throws, command attacks, special
     moves, DMs, then SDMs.  Afterwards is a list of super cancels, critical
     and counter wires, and your character's Striker Attack (if no hit is
     listed for the super cancel, assume the move is super cancelable on any
     hit).  Following that are some notes on that character's moves and
     abilities.  Translations for the move names can be found at the end of
     Section 6.  More detailed information on how to play can be found in
     Section 4.

     - The One Inch is a knockdown attack.  If canceled into, it loses this
       feature, but becomes cancelable.  It can be canceled directly into
       an (S)DM, though.
     - The Knee Assault is an overhead attack.  If canceled into, it loses
       this feature, but becomes cancelable (into the mid-air Minutes Spike).
     - The (A) Eins Trigger knocks down, while the (C) version does not.
     - The button used for the Eins Trigger determines how fast the Second
       Shoot travels across the screen.
     - You can juggle an opponent after the Second Shell.
     - The Blackout is a teleportation move.
     - The Tsuika Kougeki is cancelable (into the Minutes Spike).
     - If you delay the Heat Drive until it automatically occurs, it becomes
       unblockable.

     - The Mongolian is an overhead attack.  If canceled into, it loses this
       feature, but becomes cancelable.  It can be canceled directly into
       an (S)DM, though.
     - The Maxima Missile is cancelable.  If Maxima's opponent is airborne
       when they're hit, they will be launched into the sky, allowing you
       to cancel into the Blitz Cannon for a 2-hit combo.  Alternately, if
       the Maxima Missile counter hits, then you can hit them with a normal
       attack as they fall.
     - The Vapour Cannon can negate normal projectiles.
     - The Blitz Cannon is an anti-air throw.  However, the (B) version can
       grab large characters who are standing (like Chang).
     - If the Centoun Press is mistimed, Maxima will simply throw himself
       to the floor.  He is vulnerable to attack while recovering.
     - Maxima' standing CD attack has autoguard, in the frame where his
       arms are held horizontally behind him.
     - The Bunker Buster has autoguard both as the move begins, and as
       Maxima recovers from it.
     - The Bunker Buster is an overhead attack.
     - The Dangerous Arch, Maxima Lift, and Maxima Revenger are unblockable.

     - The last hit of the Whip Shot can be canceled.  If your opponent is
       out in the open, you can catch them with an (A) Boomerang Shot, or
       if they are in the corner, you can step on them with a (B) Assassin
       Strike.
     - After landing from the Assassin Strike, Whip can cancel her recovery
       pose into the Whip Shot or a special or (S)DM.  The Assassin Strike
       can also hit an opponent who is on the floor.
     - The Assassin Strike is an overhead attack, as is the Strings Shot Type
       A (but only on the second hit).
     - The Strings Shot Type D is cancelable.
     - During the Desert Eagle, you can tap P to make Whip fire up to seven
       shots.  After the seventh shot, she will reload her gun if P is
       pressed.  However, this limit applies even if you, say, fire three
       shots at some point in the game, then four later on.  If you've
       used seven shots and have put the Desert Eagle away, then the next
       time you input 421+P, Whip will simply take out the gun and reload
       it without firing.
     - In addition, the Desert Eagle can juggle an opponent as long as you
       keep tapping P.  Keep in mind that the (A) version has a shorter
       range than the (C) version does.
     - The Desert Eagle is a low attack, as is the Strings Shot Type B (but
       only on the second hit).
     - Whip's crouching A and the Desert Eagle can hit an opponent who is
       lying on the ground.
     - The (A) Boomerang Shot and (C) Strings Shot can hit opponents who
       are falling towards the floor.  Only the "second hit" animation will
       connect, however.
     - Whip's far standing D is odd in that the actual "hit" can only be
       canceled into the Sonic Slaughter, but the recovery animation is
       still cancelable into any attack (the Whip Shot, Boomerang Shot,
       etc.)

     - The Benpatsu Ken (Chuudan) is an overhead attack.  It retains this
       feature even if canceled into (in which case, it becomes cancelable).
     - The Benpatsu Ken (Gedan) is a knockdown attack.  If canceled into,
       it becomes cancelable.  This move can hit an opponent who is lying
       on the floor.
     - The button used for the Jatotsu Ga determines where Lin's arm comes
       out (A is closest, C is furthest, and D fakes).  The direction that
       the arm bends in is determined by your opponent's location.  If the
       arm comes out behind your opponent, it will knock them towards you,
       if it comes out in front of them, it will knock them away from you.
     - You can juggle an opponent after the (D) Hiten Kyaku or Jatotsu Ga
       (excluding the D Jatotsu Ga).  You can even juggle someone with two
       Jatotsu Gas in a row.
     - The Hike Kyaku is a teleportation move.  The (B) version makes Lin
       immune to low attacks, while the (D) version makes him immune to
       mid-level and high attacks.

     - The Tama Tsubushi is a knockdown attack, even if it is canceled

       projectiles.
     - The Zujou Barai is cancelable.  If Goro's opponent is hit by the
       "high" part of Goro's arm while they're airborne, they will be
       launched into the sky, allowing you to cancel into the Kumo Tsukami
       Nage for a 2-hit combo.  Alternately, if the Zujou Barai counter
       hits, then you can hit them with a normal attack as they fall.
     - The (A) Jirai Shin is a low attack.
     - You can fake the Jirai Shin by using the (C) button.
     - The Kumo Tsukami Nage is an anti-air throw.  However, it can also
       grab large characters (like Chang) from up close.
     - You can pick an opponent off the floor with the Kubikiri Gaeshi.
       For example, it can be used after a (D) sweep, the (A) Jirai Shin,
       the Nekko Nuki, or the Zoku: Kirikabu Gaeshi.
     - The Nekko Gaeshi reverses high and mid-level attacks.
     - The Nekko Nuki has autoguard.  Since it is a throw move, it is
       possible for Goro to autoguard against even multiple hits, then
       grab his opponent's outstretched limb and continue the move.
     - The Chou Oosotogari, Tenchi Gaeshi, Ura Nage, Jigoku Gokuraku Otoshi,
       and Nekko Nuki are unblockable.

       This hit is an overhead attack.
     - The Kototsuki Mikansei is an overhead attack on the 2nd hit.
     - The Gecchuu is an overhead attack.  It can reverse high and mid-
       level attacks.  If it reverses, Shingo does a reverse kick instead
       of an elbow drop.  What's more, Shingo moves away while attacking,
       so you may be pushed out of harm's way even if the kick misses.
     - You can juggle an opponent after the Nie Togi or SDM Kake Hourin.
     - An opponent hit by the Kake Hourin has their guard dropped.  Note
       that Shingo is not invincible while dashing during this move.
     - Shingo's jumping CD hits twice on a counterhit.  However, you cannot

     - The "Shinigame" is an overhead attack.  If canceled into, it loses
       this feature, but becomes cancelable on either hit.
     - The "Shinigame" also has a third hit animation--this is the pose
       when Iori is almost done with the move and is bringing his leg
       in.  This is a knockdown attack, but if you cancel into it, it
       becomes cancelable.
     - So how do you combo into the Shinigame and get all three hits to
       connect?  Jump over the opponent and hit them with an early Yuri
       Ori, (it must hit before you actually cross up) then do a standing
       (C) into the Shinigame.  This doesn't work against all opponents,
       though.
     - The first two inputs of the Aoi Hana are cancelable into other
       special moves (like the Kototsuki In).
     - The 3rd input of the Aoi Hana is an overhead attack.
     - The Kuzukaze is unblockable.  You can hit an opponent who is reeling
       from this move.
     - The Saika only costs 1 level to use, even though the screen will
       turn negative as it does during an SDM.
     - In order to get the Saika to come out at all, you need to finish the
       command once Iori has performed the final hit of the Ya Otome (the one
       where his opponent "explodes" in purple flame).  This means you need
       to start the 236236236236 input halfway through the move, so that
       you're pressing AC at some point after the final hit has begun.  The
       timing is actually rather lax beyond that--you can even hit someone
       off the floor with this move, if they're lying in the corner of the
       screen.

     - The One-Two Puncher is an overhead attack.  If canceled into, it loses

     - The Sliding Puncher is a low attack.  It can hit opponents who are
       lying on the floor.
     - During the (A) Parrying Puncher, Vanessa is immune to high attacks
       (but not low attacks or throws).
     - You can juggle an opponent after the Dash Puncher.
     - The Puncher Vision is a teleportation move.  This move can cancel
       into itself.  For example, you could cancel a (236+K) Puncher Vision
       into either the (236+K) or (214+K) versions.  This also applies to
       the Puncher Weaving version of the Puncher Vision (so you could
       cancel a 4+K Vision into the 214+K or 236+K versions).
     - The 2nd hit of the Puncher Straight drops an opponent's guard.
       since it is a Critical Wire.
     - The Puncher Weaving makes Vanessa dodge high and mid-level attacks.

     - The Strike Arch is both a knockdown and an overhead attack.  If
       canceled into, it loses these properties but can be canceled into
       the X Calibur or V Slasher.
     - You can juggle your opponent after the Ground Saber (if they're in
       the corner), the Earring Bakudan 1, or the time-delayed Kibaku.
     - The Heart Attack won't hit unless it's done from up close, but
       it can be blocked.  When this move is used, Leona plants an
       explosive on her opponent.  It will shine for a few seconds
       before exploding (or, you can use the Kibaku command to make it
       automatically explode).
     - What's more, Leona recovers before her opponent does, so you can
       combo off of this move.
     - Although the bomb can explode at any time (even when your opponent is
       lying on the floor), that doesn't necessarily mean it will hit for
       damage.  For example, if your opponent is in the middle of getting
       up off the floor, the explosion will do no damage.

     - The Mouko Raijin Setsu is an overhead attack.
     - Performing the SDM Ryuuko Ranbu is a bit tricky.  Simply entering
       236+C and then pressing A won't work, since Ryo's standing C pose
       has too much recovery time.  To get around this, you can either
       combo into the move (for example, a close C interrupted by 236+C_A,
       or you can perform it during another attack, even if it whiffs.
       For example, you could enter the command during a far standing B
       or an AB roll, then hit A just as you come out and Ryo will do
       the Ryuuko Ranbu.  Supercanceling from the Kohou or Kohou Shippuu
       Ken is another easy way to perform this move.

     - The Uraken is cancelable.  You can juggle your opponent afterwards.
     - The Kouryuu Koukyaku Geri is an overhead attack.  If canceled into,
       it loses this property.
     - The Nidan Sokutou Geri is a low attack.  If canceled into, it loses
       this property, but the first hit becomes cancelable.
     - The Ryuu Hanshuu is cancelable.
     - The (A) Ryuuga hits twice on a counter hit.
     - Surprisingly, Kyokugen-ryuu Renbu Kyaku is blockable.  Not only can
       you juggle your opponent after this move finishes, but the last hit
       will drop an opponent's guard (since it is a Critical Wire).
     - Robert's jumping CD hits twice on a counterhit.  However, you cannot
       juggle an opponent if they take both hits.

     - The En Yoku is an overhead attack, unless canceled into.
     - Delaying the Yuri Chou Knuckle increases the amount of damage that
       it does.
     - The Hyakuretsu Binta is unblockable.
     - The Yuri Chou Enbu is unblockable.  There is a random chance that
       this move will do increased damage.  When this happens, Yuri's
       recovery pose changes (she has her back facing the screen, instead
       of giving the "victory" sign with her hands).
     - Since the Yuri Chou Enbu has a button-press input, it can super
       cancel out of most attacks, including uncancelable moves (like
       Yuri's far standing C or the Shin! Chou Upper).
     - Yuri's intro is actually a parody of Felicia's intro from Vampire
       Savior.  That's why she says, "Meow, meow!" while getting up. :)

     - The Oniguruma is a knockdown attack.  If canceled into, it loses

       If canceled into, it loses it's knockdown property, but becomes
       cancelable.  This move can also be used to hit an opponent who
       is lying on the ground.
     - The Hisha Otoshi can destroy one-hit projectiles (normal, DM, or

       is a knockdown attack.
     - The Gaburi Yori won't grab from up close.  Like the Gasshou
       Hineri, Hinako moves forward before making a grab attempt.
     - During the Gaburi Yori, you can perform any other special move,
       excluding another Gaburi Yori.  Or, you can supercancel into the
       Oo Ichiban or Gasshou Hineri.
     - However, if you mistime the input, Hinako will be hit by her
       opponent and take damage.  If you simply input the Gaburi Yori and
       do nothing, Hinako will be attacked but will defend herself.
     - The Kake Nage and Gaburi Yori are unblockable.

     - The Soushouda is an overhead attack.  If canceled into, it loses
       this feature, but becomes cancelable.
     - The Kyuuho: Kousentai is a low attack.  If canceled into, it becomes
       cancelable.
     - The Fukuho: Kousentai is a low attack.
     - In the corner, you can juggle your opponent after the (C) Nanpa.
     - Xiangfei's Esaka is a reversal move, but it doesn't work like most
       other reversal moves do.  While your opponent is currently making
       an attack _that can hit_, you can perform this move.  For example,
       you couldn't use the Esaka during the start of Heidern's far standing
       D kick because only the ending animation can actually hit you.
     - While your opponent is attacking, press A and then _immediately_
       press in the desired direction.  Pressing 8 catches jumping attacks
       and (S)DMs, while 6 catches standing attacks and special moves.
       Pressing 2 catches attacks.
     - Only the appropriate type of Esaka can be used, so if someone attacks
       with a crouching sweep and you input A_8, nothing will happen.
       However, you can input the command from anywhere on screen (even
       though this is pretty useless if your opponent is nowhere near you).
     - Also, the Esaka has autoguard before Xiangfei attacks (but she can
       still be hit out of the beginning of the Esaka animation).
     - The last input of the Chou Pai Long will drop an opponent's guard.
       since it is a Critical Wire.
     - The SDM Majinga normally hits 103 times.  However, there is a
       random chance that it will hit 2001 times, although the damage
       increase is not that much greater than normal.
     - The Senri Chuu'ou, Shinsaiha, Banpaku Kou'en, and Majinga are
       unblockable.

     - The One Inch is a knockdown attack.  If canceled into, it loses this
       feature, but becomes cancelable.  It can be canceled directly into
       an (S)DM, though.
     - The (A) Diamond Breath knocks an opponent over.  You can hit your
       opponent after either version connects, however.
     - The Counter Shell can be used to absorb normal and SDM projectiles,
       as well as Striker projectiles.  Kula will respond by firing an
       icicle across the screen (the same as her Tsuika Kougeki: Stand
       attack).
     - The Slider Shoot and Tsuika Kougeki (Sit) are low attacks.
     - You can juggle an opponent after the Tsuika Kougeki, but only on
       a counter hit (otherwise, Kula doesn't recover fast enough).
     - The Tsuika Kougeki (Stand) also produces a projectile when used.
     - When you use the Freeze Execution, you can get the most hits if
       your opponent is in the corner of the screen where Kula is (so if
       Kula is in the far left corner and uses this move, you'd take the
       most damage if you were in the far left corner next to her).  You
       can tell where the high-damage area is because the "white" part
       juts further down into the playing field).  Remember that if Kula
       is facing in the opposite direction, the white area is reversed
       as well.

     - The Nanatsu no Kinzoku is cancelable if canceled into.
     - The Nanatsu no Koubutsu is cancelable.
     - You can cancel the Nanatsu no Kinzoku into the Nanatsu no Koubutsu.
     - The Nanatsu no Junkan and Nanajuu no Hoshi will autoguard against
       high and mid-level attacks.  If the autoguard is triggered, this
       move becomes cancelable.
     - The Nanajuu no Jouryuu works in the same way, but only against
       low and some mid-level attacks.
     - The Unicorn no Tsuno does no damage.  However, a hit character is
       momentarily stunned and is left open to attack.
     - The Taiki no Shoukei is a teleportation move.  You can cancel this
       move's animation into Foxy's 6+B or 3+B moves, or into any special
       move or the Hakuchou no Uta (this is not a supercancel).
     - The Chie no Ki and Chishiki no Bon are low attacks.
     - The Getsu no Shirogane is an overhead attack (but the Striker
       version is not).
     - The Chishiki no Bon will drop an opponent's guard on the 2nd hit
       if they are blocking low.  The last hit is cancelable and super
       cancelable, and you can juggle a hit opponent in the corner.
     - The Wakusei no Inori makes a row of slash-marks hit the opponent
       from behind.  Your opponent must block backwards (by holding
       forward), or they will be hit.
     - When you perform the Mitsubachi, Foxy will automatically forfeit
       the round if her attack misses or is blocked.  If it hits, then
       both characters are killed and the round ends in a draw.

     - At the proper distance from your opponent, the 163214+K super will
       hit nine times instead of the usual five (the first four shots
       register as two hits apiece).  The spacing on this is difficult;
       it's somewhere between being half-a-screen away and being a full
       screen away from your opponent.
     - The 263+ABCD super can hit opponents who are falling towards the
       floor.
     - Strangely enough, K9999's crouching (D) can be canceled into, just
       like a command attack.  For example, you could press 2+D during his
       near standing (C) and interrupt it on any hit, or combo into it
       from his standing close (B), etc.
     - While K9999's crouching (D) doesn't knock down, his crouching (C)
       does, on the second hit.
     - K9999's standing (D) is an overhead attack.  It's also a knockdown
       attack, and it can hit an enemy who is lying on the ground.

     - You can cancel a mid-air attack into "At the Wasteland," which isn't
       that surprising, except that it will actually combo.
     - The "Senseless Chatter" is cancelable on the second hit.  If you
       cancel into it, then it becomes cancelable on either hit.
     - The (A) Repun Kamuy will knock an opponent away from you.
     - The (C) Repun Kamuy keeps an opponent standing.  It will also drop
       their guard if blocked (and some moves, like her 8+P/K, are fast
       enough to combo in after you drop your opponent's guard).
     - When you use the "Beyond the Frames", Angel will run forward.  If
       she gets close enough to her opponent, she'll warp behind them.
       However, if she runs for too long, she won't warp at all and
       will simply stop in front of her enemy.  You can cancel this move
       into itself repeatedly.
     - Canceling the "Beyond the Frames" into one of the (M) moves is
       another story.  For the (D) version, you can simply enter the
       command while she's running (before she warps).  For the (B)
       version, enter the command as she nears her opponent.  She will
       tackle them, warp to their other side (if possible), and then do
       the attack that you just input.
     - During the "Red Sky of Japonesia" (the 63214+K version), Angel
       will warp forward.  If she gets close enough to her opponent
       before the warp is over, she'll get them in a leg hold.  If she
       can't get close enough (or if your opponent is blocking), then
       she comes out of the warp without attacking.
     - You can juggle an opponent after "Mad Murder Roulette."  If they're
       in the corner, you can do whatever you like, but out in the open,
       the only thing that will catch them is the "Red Sky of Japonesia."
     - The "Formalists' Blue" has the same cancelable properties as a
       special move.  This means that you can cancel into it from a command
       attack, like the "Senseless Chatter."
     - "Welcome to Ryuugu" will combo from the "Formalists' Blue."  However,
       "Citizen of the World" will not, although it is an overhead attack.
     - Both "A Train to See Cherry Blossoms" and "Impotent Symptom" hit low.
     - The "Impotent Symptom" will hit an opponent who is lying on the floor.
       If they were knocked down as the result of a previous (M) move, then
       they will be knocked back into a standing position.
     - "Buggy and Coffin," "With a Lamp for the Pathway," and the second
       hit of "State of Heat Haze" are all overhead attacks.
     - You can juggle your opponent after "Crown Under the Sky."
     - "State of Heat Haze" is an overhead attack.
     - "A Full Moon Evening" is unblockable.  You can cancel the start-up
       animation into "The Unidentified Victim Consciousness," if you like.
       This move does much more damage on a counter hit.
     - "A Garden To Play With Ghosts" functions just like the "Mad Murder
       Roulette" (see above).  However, Angel backsteps before attempting
       to throw, making this move difficult to land.
     - Angel's (4623+K) move reverses almost any attack (jumping, high, mid,
       and low), as well as special moves and (S)DMs.  There are two versions
       of this move; one if you reverse a mid-air attack, and one if you
       reverse a ground attack.  You can juggle your opponent after the
       ground version.
     - Angel's jumping (C) is designed to be used when jumping over your
       opponent, like Iori's Yuri Ori.
     - Angel has the ability to chain together certain attacks.  It may
       seem complicated, but the rules are rather simple.  Simply perform
       an attack marked with an (S), and during it, perform an (M) attack.
     - You then have two options; perform an (E) move during the (M) attack,
       or chain it into another (M) attack and keep chaining.
     - When chaining (M) attacks, there are three basic rules:
    
         1.  You must alternate between Punch and Kick for each attack.
         2.  You cannot use the same direction twice in a row.
         3.  You may not repeat a command.
    
     - Therefore, a chain such as (6+P > 6+K > 8+K) would not be possible,
       since it breaks all the rules.
     - So, does this mean you're limited to doing short chains?  Not at
       all.  In fact, you can chain together all the (M) attacks, like so:
    
           any (S) > 6+K > 8+P > 2+K > 6+P > 8+K > 2+P > any (E)
    
     - It may look confusing, but it's actually easy to remember, since it
       just repeats itself with different buttons.  And this is just one
       of several possible ways to chain the attacks together (you could
       do the whole (M) sequence in reverse, for example).

     - The Kawasaki is also a knockdown attack.
     - The Senheki Shuu is an overhead attack, even if canceled into.
     - The second hit of the Sliding is a low attack.
     - The Rikatsu Shuu and Psycho Ball Attack 3 can hit an opponent who
       is lying on the floor.
     - The (236+C) can be canceled into the Air Front or Air Bound after
       the 2nd hit.
     - You can juggle your opponent after Bao's (214+C), if they are in the
       corner of the screen.
     - The Psycho Ball Crash: Reflect can reflect normal and (S)DM
       projectiles.  It will merely negate Striker projectiles.
     - The Air Bound can be canceled into any ground special move or (S)DM
       during the brief period when Bao lands before bouncing upward again.
     - The 236+K attack can be canceled into a ground special move or (S)DM
       like the Air Bound, but it's much harder to do.  This is because the
       move is only cancelable if Bao hits his opponent while at the lowest
       point of his forward movement (before he bounces upward).  An easy
       way to get the timing right (vs most characters), is to do it in
       this combo:
    
         Standing or crouching (C) -> Kawasaki or Rikatsu Shuu -> Bound
    
       You should hit your opponent at the lowest point of the Bound this
       way (although the Kawasaki or Rikatsu Shuu will not actually combo
       with the Bound, so your opponent could block the Bound).
     - You can delay the Psycho Ball Attack 3, but it will automatically
       explode if it gets close to your opponent.

     - The (C) Tekkyuu Funsai Geki has autoguard during the beginning of
       the move, right when Chang rears back to begin spinning the ball.
     - Furthermore, this move will no longer hit an opponent if Chang is
       spinning the ball behind his head and his challenger moves behind him.
     - However, when Chang actually swings the ball forward, then an
       opponent who is behind him will be hit.  Even stranger is that this
       is the only way to use the (C) Tekkyuu Funsai Geki as a supercancel.
     - The timing on the supercancel seems to be incredibly difficult,
       though (I got it to work twice out of literally 60 tries).  What's
       more, the Tekkyuu Dai Bousou doesn't connect off of the super cancel
       (maybe the Assatsu does, I couldn't get it to work).  If anyone has
       a reliable way to pull this off, I'd love to hear from you :)
     - During the Tekkyuu Dai Kaiten, Chang's spinning ball can absorb
       projectiles.  This move hits twice on a counter hit.
     - The Tekkyuu Taiko Uchi reverses jumping, high, and mid-level attacks,
       as well as special moves and (S)DMs.  For every third time that you
       successfully reverse a move, Chang will fall down instead of sneezing,
       which inflicts much more damage.  However, the "fall" animation has
       less range than the sneeze does.
     - The Dai Hakai Nage is unblockable.
     - The Tekkyuu Dai Bousou ends with one of seven random finishes,
       including: a belly bop, a forward roll, an upward roll, a ground
       slide, a Hien Zan (hits on the way down), a mini belly flop, and
       a standing kick attack (looks like his standing B).
     - If you're lucky enough to get the standing B finish, then it will
       act like a Critical Wire when it his, allowing you to juggle your
       opponent as they bounce off the wall.
     - The DM version of the Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu acts as an overhead attack
       while Chang is falling.  In addition, the (A) version makes Chang
       go directly into the bellyflop, and can hit twice on a counter hit.
     - The (C) version makes Chang run forward, and as he starts running,
       he has autoguard.  This move usually hits twice (once on the way
       up and again on the way down), but it can hit twice in the air if
       it's a counter hit.
     - The SDM Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu is not an overhead, but it hits low,
       like Goro's Jiraishin.  This means that Chang's opponent will be
       damaged no matter where he is on the screen (unless he's blocking
       low or is in mid-air).
     - The SDM Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu can also hit someone who is lying on
       the floor.
     - Chang's crouching C only hits once.  However, it has several "hit
       points" that can connect.  All of them are cancelable except for
       when the ball is fully over Chang's head (the previous one, where
       it is above his head but is still at an angle, is cancelable).

     - When using the Hishou Kuuretsu Zan, the (B) version makes Choi
       fly diagonally downward, while the (D) version makes him fly
       horizontally.
     - The Shin! Chouzetsu Tatsumaki Shinkuu Zan is only a DM, but it
       can juggle an opponent repeatedly like the old SDM version could.
     - If you delay the Zan! Engetsu Rin until Choi attacks, the third
       "slash mark" he makes becomes an unblockable attack.

     - Pressing ABC will make May change her stance and enter "Hero Mode."
       In this mode, she has a completely different moveslist; see the
       next entry for more details.  May will revert to normal mode if she
       is hit while in Hero Mode.
     - The ABC stance switch also has the neat ability to cancel out of
       most moves.  This means that if you input 236+K, you can press
       ABC during either hit to make May stop and switch stances.  Since
       the stance change occurs so quickly, you can even continue to
       combo while in Hero Mode.
     - May has the ability to cancel certain attacks into other attacks.
       This ability is called the "Sanren Kyaku" (Triple Continuous Kicks),
       because she can do precisely that--deliver three attacks in quick
       succession.  The possible "Sanren Kyaku" routes are listed below:
    
                    236+K    ->  623+K    ->  62314+K
                    623+K    ->  236+K    ->  63214+K
                    236+K    ->  63214+B  ->  623+K
                    623+K    ->  63214+B  ->  236+K
                    63214+B  ->  236+K    ->  623+K
                    63214+B  ->  623+K    ->  236+K
                    236+K    ->  63214+D
                    623+K    ->  63214+D
    
     - Note that the last two routes stop after "63214+D" because using
       this move automatically puts May Lee in Hero Mode afterwards.
     - Also note that you can cancel these attacks into each other without
       waiting for them to connect.  
     - The (D) Mawashi Geri has autoguard during the animation when May Lee
       sticks her knee out before stepping forward and kicking.
     - The Kakato Otoshi is an overhead attack.
     - Inputting 63214+K makes May Lee perform the Gada Hanshuu.  If you
       input 63214+K during her 236+K or 623+K attacks, she'll perform
       the Ushiro Mawashi Geri instead.
     - The Gada Hanshuu reverses all attacks (jumping, high, mid, and low),
       as well as special moves and (S)DMs.  You can juggle your opponent
       afterwards.  It seems to be picky when it comes to low attacks,
       though (i.e. it can stop Kim's low D or Haki Kyaku, but not his
       low B).
     - The Shinjuu Kyaku is an overhead attack.  Although this move is
       May's Critical Wire, she recovers too late to juggle her opponent.
       In order to get around this, switch into Hero Mode after using the
       Shinjuu Kyaku.

     - As in Normal Mode, May's "stance change" (press ABC) can cancel out
       of most attacks.
     - In Hero Mode, May Lee has no jumping CD attack.  In addition, her
       standing CD doesn't function like your average CD attack; it drops
       an opponent's guard and is uncancelable.  Although it functions
       as her Critical Wire, you have to ABC cancel back into Normal Mode
       if you want to juggle off of it.
     - Furthermore, in Hero Mode, May Lee cannot use the Emergency Evade
       roll, nor can she block attacks.  This presents a problem, as
       getting hit while in Hero Mode returns her to Normal mode.
     - The Hero Uke will automatically guard against high and mid-level
       attacks.  If the autoguard is triggered, you can cancel this move
       into a special move or SDM.
     - The Sliding is a low attack and is cancelable.
     - The (C) Full Swing Chop will drop an opponent's guard, since it is
       a Critical Wire.
     - The (A) "May Lee Cho~p!" is an overhead attack.
     - The last hit of the "May Lee Ki~ck!" hits low, and can hit an enemy
       who is lying on the ground.
     - The "May Lee Break!" is unblockable.
     - You can link an attack after May's standing (A).
     - May's crouching (C) will launch an opponent, allowing you to juggle
       them.  You can also cancel it into her (C) "May Lee Cho~p!" for an
       easy 2-hit combo.

     - Zero comes with his own "strikers" that can be summoned by pressing
       6+A/B/C.  They don't function like real Strikers, though, aside from
       the fact that they come in and attack, and that you can hit them out
       of their attacks if you're quick enough.
     - To perform the Jagai Kusetsu, you can press 6+A at exactly the same
       time.  However, this is difficult to do, because you're more likely
       to end up summoning Krizalid.  An easier way to do this is to press
       A and then press 6 _immediately_ afterward.  Zero should perform the
       move without even beginning his standing A animation.
     - This method can also be used to input his 6+C throw (whereas pressing
       6+C is more likely to summon Ron).
     - The Jagai Kusetsu is an overhead and a knockdown attack.  It loses
       both properties if canceled into, but becomes cancelable.
     - Zero is invincible during any of the 6+A/B/C summoning moves, but
       only while he is facing away.
     - You can juggle an opponent who is hit by Krizalid's Typhon Rage or
       Grugan's diving attack.
     - Ron's attack will drop an opponent's guard, since it is a Critical
       Wire.
     - The Hankyou can reflect normal and (S)DM projectiles.
     - The last hit of the Zanpuu Enpa and Gokusa Zanjin causes your
       opponent's guard to drop.
     - When playing as Zero, you cannot use his teammates as Strikers,
       unless you're in Practice Mode.
     - Although Zero has no Power Gauge, it's really just invisible.  It
       still holds levels just like a normal gauge, and you still have to
       build up power if you want to use his DMs or Guard Cancel moves.

     - Several of Igniz' special moves are cancelable.  This includes the
       Transaxle Slice, Nega Genesis, and Sagital Slice (the A version is
       only cancelable on the first 3 hits, while the C version is only
       cancelable on the first 6 hits).  All of these moves can be canceled
       into other special moves, (S)DMs, or even themselves, providing you
       use another strength (so you could interrupt Igniz' 623+C with his
       623+A attack).
     - The Void Genocide reverses mid-level and low attacks.
     - The Divine Arrow: Low is a low attack.
     - The first hit of the Nega Genesis will drop an enemy's guard, since
       it is a Critical Wire.  Furthermore, either hit is cancelable.
     - You can juggle your opponent after the Idion Blade.
     - Against thin characters (like Leona), the Chaos Tide will miss
       when performed from up close.
     - Igniz' standing CD only knocks down on the 2nd hit.  Either hit is
       cancelable, however.
     - When playing as Igniz, you cannot use his teammates as Strikers.
     - Although Zero has no Power Gauge, it's really just invisible.  It
       still holds levels just like a normal gauge, and you still have to

     ========================================================================
     4. GAMEPLAY NOTES
     ========================================================================
    
     This section explains some of the KoF basics (listed in alphabetical
     order).
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     AUTOGUARD
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Autoguard is a nifty little feature that lets you defend against an
     attack while you're in the middle of performing a move.  This may seem
     kind of cheap, but in most cases, the autoguard can only be "triggered"
     during a particular animation frame (or series of frames).  For example,
     Ryo's Joudan Uke only has one frame of autoguard, while Maxima's Bunker
     Buster offers autoguard during the entire time that the move is
     beginning, and as he recovers from it upon landing.  Even if you hit
     him with multiple attacks, they will all be blocked.
    
     As an example of autoguard, let's look at Maxima's standing CD.  If
     an opponent attacks him, the autoguard will only come into effect if
     he is hit at a particular moment.  In this case, it's when he is
     holding his arms directly behind him horizontally.  If the autoguard
     is triggered, then there is a brief pause as the incoming attack is
     blocked, followed by the rest of the CD animation.
    
     Another feature of autoguard is that your guard won't drop during an
     automatically blocked attack, nor does it contribute to your chance
     of getting your guard dropped.  However, you still take block damage
     from autoguarding against a special move or (S)DM.
         
     Also, autoguard is not perfect.  It is entirely possible for your
     opponent to trigger your autoguard, but still hit you even after it's
     been triggered (usually this occurs when they're using an attack that
     hits more than once).
    
     Keep in mind that some moves have no effect except to provide you with
     autoguard, like Ryo's Gedan Uke or May Lee's Hero Uke [however, in
     both these cases, if autoguard is triggered, you can cancel into a
     special move or (S)DM].
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     BLOCKING ATTACKS
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     There are two ways to defend against attacks; by blocking them, or
     by using autoguard.  Autoguard is explained in a previous entry (see
     above).
    
     Blocking attacks is as simple as holding back to block while standing
     (also known as blocking high), or holding down-back to block while
     crouching (also known as blocking low).  When you block an attack,
     you take no damage from it.  If you block a special move or (S)DM,
     then you take greatly reduced damage with each hit.  Normally, you
     can't block a throw attempt, but some throws will not connect (or
     will miss entirely), if you block them.  Note that if you block too
     many attacks in a short period of time, you will experience "dropped
     guard" (see the entry below for more information on this).
    
     Blocking high will protect you from any kind of jumping attack, and
     most standing attacks (although some character's standing kicks can
     hit below the belt and must be blocked low).  However, you are left
     vulnerable to low attacks.  Blocking low protects you from low attacks
     (like crouching kicks, etc.) and most standing attacks.  However, you
     are left open to jumping attacks and overheads.
    
     An overhead is any move that cannot be blocked low, but it's most
     commonly used to describe moves that look like they should be able to
     be blocked low.  For example, Terry's Hammer Arch is a standing punch
     attack.  It looks like you could crouch and block it, but in fact, it
     will hit you unless you block while standing.
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     COUNTER HITS
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     A counter hit occurs when you are damaged while making an attack of some
     sort.  This can occur if you're hit while your attack begins, as it is
     being performed, or while you recover from it.  Any time a move connects
     on a counter hit, it does slightly more damage than usual.  Some moves
     do significantly more damage, like Ryo's Kohou Shippuu Ken or Tenchi
     Haou Ken.
    
     If a Blow Away Attack (more commonly known as the CD attack) counter
     hits, then you can juggle your opponent afterwards.  For example, if
     you jumped in with a CD that hit, doing an Oniyaki upon landing would
     not do anything.  However, if the CD counterhit, then the Oniyaki would
     actually connect.
    
     Unlike previous KoF games, there is no "Counter" message that pops up
     when you land a successful counter hit.  Instead, the screen will simply
     flash white as the hit connects.
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     DROPPED GUARD
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     "Dropped Guard" refers to those instances when, while in the midst of
     blocking an attack, your character suddenly stops blocking and goes
     into a sort of "stunned" animation for a split second.  There are two
     ways that this can happen:
    
     The first is by Guard Crush.  This happens when you block too many
     attacks in a brief period of time.  For example, if Heidern were to
     quickly attack Maxima with nine close standing (D) attacks, then on
     the ninth one, Maxima would stop blocking.  However, after you are
     Guard Crushed, the chance of getting GC'd "resets", so he could block
     nine more of the same attack before getting Guard Crushed again.
     Every character can resist a different number of hits before being
     GC'd (for example, in the above example, Mai would be GC'd in only
     eight blocked hits).
    
     The second method involves special moves that have the special ability
     to block an opponent's guard.  There's nothing special here--some moves
     can just do that, like Shingo's Kake Hourin, or the last hit of Robert's
     Kyokugen-ryuu Renbu Kyaku.  These moves will drop your guard every time,
     no matter what.
    
     So, what's the significance of all this?  Well, if your guard drops,
     that means that you're left open to attack for a moment.  If, for
     example, Kyo GC'd you with a close standing C, he could cancel it into
     the Aragami, and that would hit you before you recovered and resumed
     blocking.  The same applies to moves that drop your guard; if you
     try to block Angel's (C) Repun Kamuy, your guard would drop, and she
     could follow it up with the "Shelter From The Storm" attack (which
     would combo).
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     POWER GAUGE
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     The Power Gauge is found at the bottom of the screen.  It's length and
     the number of levels it can hold is determined by the number of Strikers
     in your party (see Section 5 for more information about this).
    
     The Power Gauge will gradually fill up as the following requirements are
     met:
    
       - You perform a special move that misses (including special throws).
       - You perform an attack that is blocked.
       - You perform an attack that hits [excluding normal throws and
         (S)DMs].
       - You are hit by an opponent's attack (excluding normal throws).
             
     Once the Power Gauge is completely full, it will change color and a
     number will appear.  Depending on your Striker arrangement, you may
     only be able to hold 1 full level of power, or you may be able to hold
     up to four levels.
    
     Once you earn a level of power, the only way to lose it is to either
     end the battle (meaning all of your opponents are defeated), or expend
     your level(s) on one of the following moves:
    
       - A Guard Cancel roll                (press 4/6+AB while blocking)
       - A Guard Cancel attack              (press CD while blocking)
       - A Desperation Move (DM)            (command varies)
       - A Super Desperation Move (SDM)     (command varies)
       - A Super Cancel                     (command varies)
    
     Guard Cancel moves cost one level of power to use, as do DMs.  SDMs
     cost two levels to use.  A supercancel costs one level for the act
     of canceling, and one or more additional levels for the DM or SDM
     that you're canceling into (see the entry on Super Cancels for more
     information).
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     REVERSAL MOVES
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Reversal moves have the ability to "catch" your opponent's attack and
     respond with an attack on your own.  Some of these reversal moves cannot
     hit unless the "reversal" feature is triggered (such as Goro's Nekko
     Gaeshi), while others can actually hit an opponent and only reverse
     attacks as a secondary function (like Shingo's Gecchuu).
    
     All reversal moves have a certain animation frame (or frames) in which
     the reversal can be triggered.  Otherwise, if your opponent attacks you
     and you're not in that particular frame, you'll just get hit.  For
     example, Shingo's Gecchuu can only be used as a reversal if Shingo is
     hit while he is lifting up his arm above his head.
    
     Not all reversal moves can "catch" the same attacks.  Here are the types
     of attacks you can reverse, depending on who you're using:
    
      Jumping       - an attack your opponent makes while in air.
      High          - an attack that hits above the waist.
      Mid-Level     - an attack that hits below the waist, but doesn't
                      hit the lower legs or feet (such as most crouching
                      punches).
      Low           - attacks that hit the feet (such as most crouching
                      kicks).
      special moves - Includes non-projectile and non-throw special moves.
      (S)DMs        - Includes non-projectile and non-throw (S)DMs.
    
     Note that an opponent's "attack" refers to any move that has a hit
     animation that is not a special move or (S)DM.  So a jumping CD attack,
     standing B, or a command attack (like Leona's Strike Arch) could all
     be reversed.  Ryo's Joudan Uke could not, because although it is a
     command attack, it has no hit animation.
    
     If a character can reverse special moves or (S)DMs, then they can
     "catch" those moves even if they are unblockable (such as Ralf's
     Galactica Phantom).  A character who can reverse special moves still
     cannot reverse blockable throws, even though they have a "hit"
     animation.  Also, just because you can reverse a particular type of
     attack doesn't mean that you can reverse _all_ of them.
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     SUPER CANCELS
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     When you cancel a special move into a DM or SDM, you are performing a
     "super cancel."  You can tell that a super cancel takes place because
     not only does the screen turn black (as it does when you perform a DM
     or SDM), but your character briefly flashes white.  Most characters
     have at least one special move that can be used for super canceling--
     those moves are listed in Section 3.
    
     Unlike previous KoF incarnations, the DM or SDM you cancel into comes
     out instantly, allowing for more combo possibilities.  Also, note that
     since there is no Counter Mode in KoF '01, there are no special
     prerequisites for using a super cancel.  The only thing you need is an
     extra level, since the act of super canceling costs 1 level.  This means
     that canceling into a DM costs 2 levels in all, and canceling into a SDM
     costs 3 levels.  Also, supercancels can only be used with special moves
     that hit or are blocked--if they miss, the supercancel will not come
     out.
    
     As an example of a supercancel, let's look at Xiangfei.  One of her
     super cancelable moves is the Tenpou Zan.  Let's say you want to cancel
     in into her Dai Tetsujin DM.  In addition to needing 2 levels (one for
     the cancel, and one for the DM), you'll see that the Tenpou Zan is only
     super cancelable on the first hit (because Xiangfei leaves the ground
     on the 2nd hit).  Therefore, if you want to perform this supercancel,
     you'd enter the commands like so:
    
                          623+K (1st hit) -> 2363214+K
    
     Although you could use the command above, an easier way to perform
     super cancels is to use abbreviated commands.  This is done by
     combining the special move and DM commands into one smooth motion,
     allowing you to pull off the move faster and with less hassle.  In
     the above example, you can shorten it like so:
    
                          6236+K (1st hit) -> 3214+K
    
     By altering the first command, you can still perform the Tenpou Zan
     while also putting in part of the Dai Tetsujin command.  You don't
     have to "abbreviate" the commands for super cancels, but it makes
     super canceling a lot easier to do.
    
     Some characters can even cancel DMs into (S)DMs.  These work the same
     as super cancels, but they require more levels of power to use.  For
     example, if Joe does his Ougon no Tiger Kick and cancels the first hit
     into the SDM Screw Upper, it would cost 4 levels of his Power Gauge;
     one for the Ougon no Tiger Kick, one for the supercancel, and two for
     the SDM Screw Upper.
    
     Also note that characters with cancelable DMs can cancel into the same
     move twice.  This means Joe could cancel the 1st hit of the Ougon no
     Tiger Kick into the Ougon no Tiger Kick again.
    
     Characters with "button-press" supers (Mary's Dynamite Swing or Yuri's
     Yuri Chou Enbu), can super cancel out of almost any special move into
     their "button-press" DM or SDM.  This includes moves that normally
     cannot be super canceled out of, like Mary's M. Snatcher or Yuri's
     Shin! Chou Upper.
    
     Finally, some characters can supercancel without using up levels.
     This applies to some command attacks (like Kula's  One Inch) and
     some special moves (like Foxy's Taiki no Shoukei).  There is no
     "white flash" while canceling, and the only levels you lose are for
     the cost of the (S)DM.
                             
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     THROW TYPES
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Not all throws function in the same way.  Throws can be put into one of
     three categories; those that are unblockable (anybody's normal C or D
     throw, for example), those that are blockable (Maxima's Blitz Cannon)
     and those that miss entirely if you block them (Hinako's Yorigiri).  
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     WIRE DAMAGE
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     The biggest new addition to the KoF series is the concept of "Wire
     Damage."  The idea is that there are certain moves that, when they hit
     your opponent, will send them flying into a wall, which they will then
     bounce off of.  It's supposed to make you think of someone being yanked
     backwards by a wire (like when they film special effects, etc.)
    
     In terms of gameplay, what this simply means is that some moves open
     up juggle possibilities, since they send your opponent rebounding off
     the wall.  While your opponent is airborne, they are open to attack
     and can be juggled by pretty much anything.
    
     There are two types of "wire" attacks.  One is "Critical Wire" attacks.
     These are moves that bounce your opponent off the wall by their very
     nature.  They include moves like Ralf's Galactica Phantom and Zero's
     Ron summon.  Critical Wires will drop an opponent's guard if they are
     blocked, but this only applies to the hit which actually produces the
     Critical Wire.  In other words, moves like Ryo's (A) Zanretsu Ken and
     May Lee's Shinjuu Kyaku will not drop your guard because the initial
     hits aren't the ones that act as Critical Wires.
    
     The other type of wire attack is called a "Counter Wire."  These
     attacks don't juggle the opponent unless they land on a counter hit
     (see the previous section on Counter Hits).  If you are lucky enough
     to counter hit with one of these moves, then you can juggle your
     opponent as you normally would.  Some examples of Counter Wires
     include Goro's jumping CD attack, and May Lee's (A) Full Swing Chop.
     
    
     ========================================================================
     5. STRIKER INFO.
     ========================================================================
    
     Strikers have always been an important part of KoF gameplay, so this
     section deals exclusively with them.
             
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     STRIKER SYSTEM
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     The Striker System has been changed this time around.  After selecting
     your four teammates, you can choose which members of your party are
     playable, and which ones are strikers.  How you arrange your party
     affects a number of different factors, as the table below illustrates:
    
         # of Players        One   |    Two   |   Three  |   Four
         # of Strikers      Three  |    Two   |    One   |   None 
         # of Levels        Four   |   Three  |    Two   |    One
         Gauge Length       Short  |  Medium  |   Long   |  Longest
         Attack Power*        1    |     3    |     3    |     4
         Defense Power       3.5   |     3    |     2    |     1
         Life Recovery        4    |     4    |     1    |    0.5
    
     * You can Guard Crush someone with fewer hits depending on how high
       your Attack Power is.
    
     The ratings used for attack, defense, and life recovery are not exact,
     they're just there to give you an idea of the contrast between ratings,
     with 0 being the lowest, and 4 being the highest.  In other words, if
     you have one person in your party and three Strikers, then you have
     low attack power, high defense power, and you recover a lot of life
     after each winning round.
    
     However, don't worry if you arrange your team and are unsatisfied with
     how they turned out.  Before each new battle, you have the option of
     rearranging your team.  For example, you could have 1 player and 3
     strikers in the first battle, and 2 players and 2 strikers in the
     second battle.
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     USING STRIKERS
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Calling a Striker now drains a level from your Power Gauge--the old
     system of using "Strike Bombs" has been done away with.  In general,
     a Striker can be summoned by pressing BC.  However, if you have more
     than one striker, additional commands can be used:
    
      - With 2 strikers, BC summons the middle one, and 4/6+BC summons the
        one behind them.
      - With 3 strikers, BC summons the middle one, 4+BC summons the one
        behind them, and 6+BC summons the one in front of them.
      - Alternately, you can summon Strikers from a crouching position
        by using 1/2/3+BC, respectively (useful if you want to charge
        a move like Kim's Hien Zan while calling out a Striker).
    
     For example, let's say you're setting up your characters and you put
     them in this order: Goro as a Striker, then Kyo as your player, then
     Benimaru as a Striker, and Shingo as a Striker.  Once game game
     begins, you will be using Kyo, and your Striker portraits will be
     arranged in this order:
    
                            Goro / Benimaru / Shingo
    
     This means that pressing BC will summon Benimaru, 4+BC will summon
     Goro, and 6+BC will summon Shingo.  Don't forget, the Striker Call
     command is reversed when you're facing in the opposite direction,
     just like all your other moves.  This means that pressing towards
     your opponent and BC would summon Shingo, even though the portrait
     lineup might confuse you into thinking you're calling out Goro.
    
     When you press BC to summon a Striker, your character will pose for a
     moment.  During the instant that you press BC, your character will
     be totally invincible.  Afterwards, though (even if they are still
     posing), they can be hit.  Furthermore, Strikers are not invulnerable
     and can be attacked as soon as they appear on-screen.  After they have
     made their attack, however, they cannot be hit.  
    
     Finally, remember that a Striker's attack usually does very little
     damage, since their main purpose is to set your opponent up for a
     juggle or combo.
                 
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     STRIKER CANCEL SYSTEM
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Normally, when you call out a Striker, your character poses while the
     Striker appears.  Another way of calling a Striker is by using the
     "Striker Cancel System."  To do this, attack your opponent.  If your
     attack hits, then press BC (or 4/6+BC) while your opponent is taking
     the hit.  This will summon a Striker without making your character pose.
     In fact, it allows you to keep attacking while your Striker is helping
     you out.
    
     The only requirement is that your opponent must still be standing after
     you hit them.  If your attack knocks them over, you cannot summon your
     Striker.  However, since you can summon a Striker any particular _hit_,
     you could still attack your opponent with a special move like Kyo's
     close (C) Oniyaki, and summon a Striker on the first hit (since your
     opponent is still standing), even though the second hit will knock them
     down.
    
     Note that you cannot cancel into a Striker Call using DMs, SDMs, or
     throws.  Only normal attacks, command attacks, and special moves can
     be used.
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     MULTIPLE STRIKER SYSTEM
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     The Multiple Striker System is a variation of the Striker Cancel System
     explained above.  It allows you to summon more than one striker, as
     long as your opponent is still standing.  If your opponent has been
     knocked down or launched into the air by a previous attack, you cannot
     call another striker.  Obviously, you cannot use this if you only have
     one Striker in your team.
    
     So, how do you use the Multiple Striker System?  Well, while your
     first Striker is on-screen (before, during, or after they've attacked),
     simply use the Cancel Striker System (i.e. attack your opponent and
     press BC while your attack hits).  This will bring out another Striker.
     As long as you keep making hits, you can keep summoning Strikers until
     all of them are on-screen.  This also means that instead of making two
     separate attacks to call in two Strikers, you can do it off two hits
     of the same attack, such as Mai's (C) Ryuu Enbu (since both hits leave
     her opponent standing).
    
     You can determine which striker you want to cancel summon by pressing
     in the desired direction + BC, or you can simply press BC to call out
     the strikers in a predetermined order (which I haven't figured out
     yet).
     
     If you have 4 levels of power stored, you can even bring out the same
     Striker again, if they've already left the screen.  This is usually
     using the first striker you called out (since they are the first to
     leave the screen).  So, after calling out three strikers, if your foe
     is still standing and your first Striker has left, press BC and he'll
     come out again.
    
     I'm not sure if it's a bug or not (I would say yes), but if you use
     the Multiple Striker System, then the damage the Strikers inflict
     starts going way up (especially if you have three Strikers on your
     team).  Depending on the Striker you're using, you can do some pretty
     insane damage.
    
     For an easy example of how this works, let's say you're using Takuma
     and have Angel and Choi as Strikers.  Call Angel, then hit your foe
     with a standing A and cancel into the Choi summon.  When Choi stabs
     your opponent, he will do about double damage.  This feature doesn't
     seem to work with all strikers, though (reverse the situation and
     Angel's Striker attack still does piddly damage).
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     SUREFIRE JUGGLES
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     One contributor brought up an interesting point--certain moves can
     juggle an opponent no matter what.  For example, we all know that you
     can't juggle someone off a CD attack unless it counterhits.  However,
     Benimaru can hit someone with a jumping CD, then do a short jump C
     and still hit them.  Or you can throw someone with K9999, then juggle
     them with his 263+ABCD super.
    
     Here's a list of the "surefire" juggles known so far:
    
            K'                      Mid-air Minutes Spike
            Benimaru                Jumping C
            Whip                    Boomerang Shot (2nd hit)
            Seth                    (C) "Morote"-Sho-Yoh (2nd hit)
            Blue Mary               Dynamite Swing (either version)
            Kula                    (D) Ray Spin
            K9999                   Chikara ga...katte ni...uwaaa!!
    
     Some of the juggles he told me about were truly crazy--such as doing
     K's air Minutes Spike after the Heat Drive (!) and an infinite for
     Kula.  I was able to get it to work best by cornering the opponent
     and doing a (B) Ray Spin into the Stand followup, then juggle with
     a standing C and repeat, using the (D) Ray Spin.  Another follow-up
     for Kula is to do the Freeze Execution from the opposite end of the
     screen, then juggle with the (D) Ray Spin.
    
     Seth has an easy "instant kill" using his surefire juggle.  Get your
     opponent in the corner and do this combo:
    
            Jumping D -> Standing D -> Back Blow -> Irimi-Nadazuki
    
     You can then juggle your opponent after the Nadazuki with the (C)
     "Morote"-Sho-Yoh.  You need to input the command the moment you
     recover, so that there will be enough time for Seth to begin the
     second arm swing (since that and the "steam" are the hits that
     count as surefire juggles).  Then just repeat the "Morote"-Sho-Yoh
     until they are dead.
                         
     If anyone knows of any other "surefire" juggles, feel free to drop
     me a line.

     STRIKER ACTION LIST
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     This section lists each character, the name of their Striker Action, and
     what they actually do when summoned.  Characters are listed in order by
     their teams.
    
     K'                                                        (Narrow Spike)
      - K' performs the Narrow Spike.  However, if his opponent is in the
        air, he'll do an (A) Crow Bites instead.
            
     MAXIMA                                                  (Maxima Gallows)
      - Maxima leaps in and strangles his opponent with one hand.  Although
        this is a throw move, it can be blocked.  The "strangle" animation
        does no damage.
    
     WHIP                                                   (Valkyrie Killer)
      - Whip comes down using an Assassin Strike (this doesn't hit), and
        then does the Strings Shot Type B: "Code: Chikara."
    
     LIN                                                        (Hirai Kyaku)
      - Lin leaps in while kicking.  If his kick connects, he does the
        ending of the (D) Hiten Kyaku, which launches a hit opponent.
    
     KYO KUSANAGI                                               (R.E.D. KicK)
      - Kyo comes in with a (B) R.E.D. KicK.  If it misses, he taunts.  If
        it hits, he follows up with a (B) Hikigane.
    
     BENIMARU NIKAIDO                                           (Electrigger)
      - Benimaru leaps in and does his old Electrigger DM.  Although this
        is a throw move, it can be blocked.  The "electrocution" part of
        this move does no damage.
    
     GORO DAIMON                                                 (Abare Goro)
      - Goro leaps in and does his "Jigoku Gokuraku Otoshi" animation.
        However, this is not a throw--instead, the animation of him
        leaning from side to side can hit like a physical attack.  A
        hit opponent is launched into the air.
    
     SHINGO YABUKI                            (212 Shiki: Kototsuki Mikansei)
      - Shingo runs onscreen and performs a (D) Kototsuki Mikansei.  The
        second hit still functions as an overhead, too.
    
     IORI YAGAMI                                 (Ura 108 Shiki: Ya Sakazuki)
      - Iori dashes in (this can hit an opponent) and throws a Yami Barai.
        If it hits his opponent, it turns into a puddle and his enemy is
        launched into the air.  The Yami Barai can also hit an opponent who
        is lying on the floor.  If the dashing animation counterhits, it
        acts as a Counter Wire.
    
     SETH                                                       (Final Agent)
      - Seth jumps in and performs a Sho-Yoh.
    
     VANESSA                                                   (Hard Puncher)
      - Vanessa glides in while punching rapidly.  This move does no damage.
    
     RAMON                                               (El Diablo Amarillo)
      - Ramon races forward while performing a short version of his
        "El Diablo Amarillo Ramon" DM.
              
     LEONA                                                     (Killer Touch)
      - Leona slides forward.  If she touches her opponent before her slide
        is over, she attaches a bomb to them and leaps away as they explode.
    
     RALF JONES                                           (Galactica Phantom)
      - Ralf dives in with a Kyuukouka Bakudan Punch.  Upon landing, he
        performs an instant Galactica Phantom (which is blockable).
    
     CLARK STEEL                                             (Gatling Attack)
      - Clark leaps in with a CD attack (this can't hit), and then does
        an (A) Gatling Attack upon landing.
    
     HEIDERN                                          (Clearing Moon Slasher)
      - Heidern appears out of the shadows (it's his old '98 intro pose).
        After raising his arm up and drawing it across, he performs a
        Moon Slasher.
    
     TERRY BOGARD                                               (Dunk Geyser)
      - Terry rushes forward while doing his old Power Charge.  If it hits,
        he then performs a multi-hit Dunk Geyser.  If the Charge misses, he
        does a Power Geyser instead.
    
     ANDY BOGARD                                         (Shippuu Zan'ei Ken)
      - Andy leaps in, lands, and performs a long-range Zan'ei Ken.
    
     JOE HIGASHI                                 (Shijou Saikyou no Low Kick)
      - Joe leaps in and does his Shijou Saikyou no Low Kick.  However,
        this move can be blocked standing.
    
     BLUE MARY                                                 (Rapid Spider)
      - Mary comes in with a Straight Slicer (which hits low).  Even if
        she misses, she'll still follow with an M. Spider.  If that misses,
        she stands up and leaves.  If it hits, she gets her opponent into a
        hold on the ground, then kicks them up into the air.
    
     RYO SAKAZAKI                                           (Tenchi Haou Ken)
      - Ryo runs in and performs a Tenchi Haou Ken.
    
     ROBERT GARCIA                                          (Ryuuren Moushuu)
      - Robert dashes forward.  If he hits his opponent while dashing, he
        does a mini "Ryuuko Ranbu"-type attack ending with his old "Ryuu
        Zanshou" kick.
    
     YURI SAKAZAKI                                              (Hien Rekkou)
      - Yuri runs in and performs her old "Hien Rekkou" DM.  This move does
        no damage.
    
     TAKUMA SAKAZAKI                        (Chou Hissatsu: Tengu Shikou Ken)
      - Wearing his Mr. Karate mask, Takuma runs in and throws a Haou
        Shikou Ken across the screen.
    
     KING                                                         (Trap Rush)
      - King slides across the floor.  Whether the slide hits or misses,
        she follows up with a multi-hit version of her old "Silent Flash."
    
     MAI SHIRANUI                                           (Mizudori no Mai)
      - Mai shows up and throw three flaming fans across the screen, a la
        her old "Mizudori no Mai" SDM.
    
     HINAKO SHIJOU                                            (Teppou Hinako)
      - Hinako rushes forward while doing her "Tsukidashi" attack.  If only
        the last hit connects on a counterhit, it acts as a Counter Wire.
    
     XIANGFEI LI                                           (Chou Pai Long Ni)
      - Xiangfei leaps on-screen, waits for a moment, then does her Chou
        Pai Long DM.  She taunts afterwards, then leaps away.
    
     KULA DIAMOND                                         (Slider Crow Bites)
      - Kula skates forward and does a sliding kick into the (C) Crow Bites.
    
     K9999                                           (Ore ni meirei sunna-!!)
      - K9999 leaps in with a jumping (C) attack that hits twice.  If it
        hits, he does his standing CD attack.  However, if the (C) attack
        misses, then he just stands there, then walks away without
        attacking.  The standing CD attack is a Critical Wire.
    
     FOXY                                                (Getsu no Shirogane)
      - Foxy races forward, then leaps up and does her "Getsu no Shirogane"
        attack.  Note that it is not an overhead and can be blocked low.
    
     ANGEL                                                (Beyond the Frames)
      - Angel rushes forward and does her "Beyond the Frames" attack, then
        follows it up with a hit from behind.  This move does no damage.       
    
     ATHENA ASAMIYA                                       (Phoenix Arrow '95)
      - Athena dives downward at an angle while doing her old (B) Phoenix
        Arrow attack (there is no ball of light around her).  If none of
        the diving hits connect, she lands and starts crying.  However, if
        at least one of them hits, she does a crouching kick upon landing
        that acts as a Critical Wire.
    
     SIE KENSOU                                                  (Sen Shippo)
      - Kensou dives in using the Ryuu Sougeki (which cannot hit).  Upon
        landing, he does a (C) Sen Shippo.  If it misses, he taunts (and
        the taunt can hit and acts as a Critical Wire, which means it will
        also drop an opponent's guard if blocked).
    
     CHIN GENTSAI                                       (Kaiten Hyoutan Shuu)
      - Chin rolls in and does his old "spinning gourd" win pose from '98.
        However, the spinning gourd animation can actually hit now.
    
     BAO                                           (Psycho Ball Attack: Rise)
      - Bao leaps in with a Senheki Shuu (this cannot hit).  Upon landing,
        he does his "Psycho Ball Attack: Rise," (which hits low), then
        rolls backwards.
    
     KIM KAPHWAN                                               (Hishou Kyaku)
      - Kim leaps in while doing a single hit "Hishou Kyaku."  If it hits,
        he does a single hit of his old "Kuu Sajin" attack.
    
     CHANG KOEHAN                                        (Tekkyuu Dai Kourin)
      - Chang bellyflops onscreen ala his "Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu."  Upon
        landing, he bounces forward again (allowing for another hit).
        This move does no damage.
    
     CHOI BOUNGE                                               (Toorima Zuki)
      - Choi runs forward until he reaches his opponent.  He then does his
        Geketsu Zuki (it's a physical attack, not a throw).  Afterwards,
        he bows, removes his hat, then runs off.
    
     MAY LEE                                                (Shinjuu Shoukan)
      - May runs forward and does the (A) Full Swing Chop, followed by a
        backwards kick.  Note that the two attacks do not combo together.
    
     ZERO                                                       (Typhon Rage)
      - Krizalid leaps in and does the Typhon Rage, just like Zero's 6+B
        attack.
    
     IGNIZ                                                             (None)
      - Igniz jumps on-screen, then jumps away.  If his opponent is in the
        air, he jumps in, hops forward, then jumps away.
    
    
     ========================================================================
     6. MISCELLANEOUS
     ========================================================================
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     GLITCHES
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Backstep Jump
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Here's a trick that's been around for a couple of years already. :)
     When using Iori, tap 44 to backstep and hold 4 while pressing B.  Not
     only will Iori do the Yuri Ori, but he'll jump back much further than
     he would during a normal backstep.
    
     This trick can also be done using Kyo's Naraku Otoshi or Mai's Dairin
     Fuusha Otoshi, although they won't move back as far as Iori will.  You
     need to input the command as soon as possible for it to work well, so
     try entering the command as 4412+A (for Mai) or 4412+C (for Kyo), so
     that the backstep command smoothly interrupts into the attack animation.
    
     Storm Bringer Damage Increase
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     For some odd reason, Heidern returns with the same glitch he had in KoF
     '98. :)  Simply perform a Moon Slasher that misses.  Anytime before the
     round ends, connect with the Storm Bringer, and Heidern will drain more
     life than usual (but he still earns back the normal amount of life).
    
     Gain Power Gauge Energy From Throws
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Andy retains his old throw glitch from '98.  Normally, using normal
     throws does not earn any Power Gauge energy, but once you've gained any
     amount of power in your Power Gauge, Andy's (C) throw starts earning
     energy on the "ground kick" part of his throw.  This effect ends if
     your Power Gauge is emptied (but you can earn more power to start up
     the glitch again).
    
     Other simple glitches involve Ralf's (C) throw earning Power Gauge
     energy when it connects, and Ramon's Tiger Spin earning Power Gauge
     energy if it misses.  This works with both the DM and SDM Tiger Spin.
                                           
     Short Input Command
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     In previous KoFs, some commands could be shortened to make them easier
     to perform.  The only one that still seems to exist in 2001 is the
     shortened "Hou'ou Kyaku" input.  Instead of using "21416+K", you can
     simply use "246+K."  This can also be applied to Terry's Power Geyser.
    
    
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     SPECIAL INTROS
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     This section lists brief explanations of the various "special intros"
     between characters.  Some intros only work if you are on the first round
     of the battle (like the Shingo vs. Iori intro).  The characters are
     listed in their team order:
    
     K' vs. MAXIMA
      - Maxima is shown grunting, pushing his fist into his palm.  K'
        talks while looking down, then looks up.
    
     K' vs. WHIP
      - K' talks for a bit.
    
     K' vs. K9999
      - The two rivals talk to each other.
    
     WHIP vs. LEONA, RALF, or CLARK
      - Whip rocks back and forth on her heels, then turns and salutes.

        appears and stops him.
    
     KYO vs. IORI
      - Kyo and Iori are standing next to each other.  They talk for a
        bit, then leap away as their orange and purple flames explode.
    
     SHINGO vs. IORI
      - Shingo stands tall and blabbers on before pointing at Iori.
    
     SETH vs. ZERO
      - Seth stands silently for a moment, then points at Zero and says
        something.
    
     VANESSA vs. ANY FEMALE (except VANESSA, FOXY, and MAY LEE)
      - Vanessa talks for a bit while resting her elbow on her arm.
    
     RAMON vs. VANESSA
      - Ramon gets love-struck and utters something, while Vanessa puts
        a hand to her face, looking embarrassed.
                       
     LEONA vs. WHIP or CHANG
      - Leona salutes her challenger.  Against Whip, she will salute back.
    
     RALF vs. WHIP, LEONA, or CLARK
      - Ralf does a sort of sumo stomp and gestures for his opponent to
        approach him.
    
     CLARK vs. WHIP, LEONA, or RALF
      - Clark doffs his cap at his opponent.

      - Heidern appears in a trenchcoat and cap, which he tosses aside.
     
     TERRY vs. MARY
      - Terry hunches over and says, "Get ready!"  Mary responds with
        "Let's fight, Terry!"
     
     ANGEL vs. KULA, FOXY, or K9999
      - Angel makes a funny face and sticks her tongue out.  I could swear
        she's saying "okey dokey," but that's probably not right.
    
     JOE vs. TERRY or ANDY
      - Joe lifts up his fist and smacks it into his other hand.
    
     RYO vs. ROBERT or YURI

        the same pose.
     
     KING vs. RYO
      - King bows respectfully to Ryo, who looks away with a disgruntled
        expression.
    
     KING vs. MAI or HINAKO
      - King is looking away.  She brushes her hair with her hand, faces
        her opponent while gesturing, and says, "C'mon baby!"
    
     MAI vs. ANDY
      - Mai sets down a baby boy, who starts walking towards Andy.  She
        then taunts with her fan and says, "Hora, ganbatte!"  Andy freaks
        out, but the baby vanishes after a few steps--it was just another
        one of Mai's tricks.  Andy actually has to smack himself in the
        face in order to snap out of it :)
    
     KULA vs. K', MAXIMA, WHIP, ANGEL, ZERO, IGNIZ
      - Kula appears with Candy and Diana by her side, who both pose
        with their rapiers before disappearing.
    
     KULA vs. FOXY
      - Kula appears in a different outfit, holding a lollipop. Diana
        goes up to Foxy and talks to her, then moves to Kula's side,
        replacing Kula's outfit with her battle gear.
    
     KULA vs. K9999
      - Diana appears and talks, prompting K9999 to snap back at her.
    
     FOXY vs. IGNIZ
      - Foxy appears facing away from Igniz.  She creates her sword from
        a flash of light, then turns while thrusting outward with it.
    
     KENSOU vs. ATHENA
      - Kensou looks at Athena with a pained expression.  Athena says,
        "Nani?" (What's wrong?) but Kensou says nothing.
    
     CHIN vs. ATHENA, KENSOU, or BAO
      - Chin nods at his opponent.
    
     BAO vs. ATHENA, KENSOU or CHIN
      - Bao folds his arms and bows while saying, "Ganbatte!"

      - Kim's eye glow menacingly as he points at his opponent and says,
        "Ikuzo!"
    
     CHANG vs. CHOI
      - Choi is wearing Chang's bracelets and is holding his iron ball,
        while Chang is wearing Choi's claws on his index fingers.  The
        two look in confusion at their weapons, then throw them up in
        the air, jump up, and don their proper equipment upon landing.
    
     MAY LEE vs. KIM
      - May sort of imitates Kim's opening stance.

      - Zero is down on one knee, with Grugan by his side.
    
     IGNIZ vs. K', MAXIMA, WHIP, KULA, FOXY, K9999, ANGEL
      - Igniz talks for a bit and then whips his cloak around in a
        dismissive motion.

     SPECIAL WIN POSES
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     The following scenes only take place if the first player defeats the
     second player on any round other than the last one:
    
     WHIP vs. K', MAXIMA, or RAMON
      - This only works if you get a Draw Game by running out of time.
        Instead of her normal time out pose, Whip does one of her normal
        win poses (the one where she kisses her whip).
    
     LIN beats ZERO
      - Several of Lin's fellow ninjas appear (according to the ending
        credits, the big guy is Sai, the woman is Lan, and the child's
        name is Chato).
    
     BENIMARU beats ANY WOMAN except XIANGFEI, FOXY, ANGEL, and MAY LEE
      - Benimaru stands with his arms at his side, looking startled.  He
        then says, "Gomen ne."
    
     SHINGO beats KYO
      - Shingo poses and begins talking.  He realizes that Kyo is just lying
        there and asks, "Kusanagi-san?" several times before freaking out at
        the thought of having done in his master.
    
     SETH beats VANESSA
      - Seth lets out a long breath, then leans over and starts talking.
    
     VANESSA beats SETH
      - Vanessa stands with her arms behind her head and says something.
    
     RAMON beats VANESSA
      - Ramon rushes over to Vanessa's side, looking worried.  He gets down
        on one knee and makes an odd gesture with his arms while saying
        "Miss Vanessa!"
    
     LEONA beats IORI
      - Leona turns away and flexes her fingers while talking.  Her hair
        turns pink and her eyes go white as she reverts into Orochi Leona
        for a brief moment, then she reverts to her normal self and swipes
        her arm across her side.
    
     LEONA beats RALF, CLARK, or HEIDERN
      - Leona salutes her fallen opponent.

        irritated.
    
     TAKUMA beats RYO, ROBERT, or YURI

     KING beats RYO, ROBERT, YURI, or TAKUMA
      - King adjusts her tie, then takes off her jacket and leans forward.
    
     KULA beats FOXY
      - Kula's hair reverts to blonde and she looks away, surprised, as
        Diana appears and pats her on the head.
    
     FOXY beats IGNIZ
      - Diana appears, carrying Kula.  After setting Kula down, both Foxy
        and Diana switch into their normal clothes.
    
     ATHENA beats KENSOU
      - Athena gets a worried look (the same pose from the Athena vs. Kensou
        intro), and says something.
    
     KENSOU beats ATHENA
      - Kensou covers his face with his arm and starts bawling.

       "hourai" is the name of a mountain that lies in the middle of the

     - Not only does Zero have some strange quotes (in English, no less),
       but his some of his move names are actually from "Hokuto no Ken"
       (Fist of the North Star).  This also includes the "Shikka Koujin"
       and "Mabukousou" moves he had in 2000.

     - Well, the kana for "Idion Blade" sounds like "EE-de-yawn," which
       isn't a real English word.  The closest is "idiom" (IH-de-ohm), which
       refers to one's characteristic style (such as they way in which an
       artist paints).  I'm not sure if this is the word they were after or
       if "Idion" is more correct.
     - Along the same lines, "sagital" is not a real word, either, even
       though that's what the kana sounds like.  I suppose the word is
       supposed to make you think of "sage" or "Sagittarius", or something
       like that.
     - The same applies to "nega."  I guess it's referring to "negative?"
                         
     Thanks for reading.
