  Version 1.1 (2002/08/01)
After having played many times, and writing a faq for some times now, I
am ready to give it to the public.   My major issues in this faq are
about the backgrounds of the characters, the controls, and the moves
names and their respective joystick motions.  Any help on these will be
greatly appreciated.


2) INTRODUCTION
Rage of the Dragons it's a Tag Team fighting game (2 VS 2) developed by
Noise Factory and distributed by Evoga.  The victory goes to the first
team able to defeat the 2 other fighters.  The game features 14 playable
characters and 2 bosses.

I'm writing this because I don't find any faq about this game until
today, and I think this game deserve it because it's a very good one.
The fighting engine is great and the graphics are good (a little under
Mark of the Wolves standard). The animation it's sometimes choppy, but
real good in general.  The backgrounds and the musics are OK.

There probably a few mistakes about the names and the background of the
characters; the controls; the names and the motion of the special moves,
but I'm still working on it.  Sadly, the Rage of the Dragons machine in
my local arcade it's already gone.  So, if I don't find another arcade
with the game, I will probably buy the NeoGeo cartridge to complete this
faq when it's come out.


3) STORY
3.1) The Legend of the Dragons
The art of the dragons it's a very unique art among the rest because it
practices the worship of the dragons, ancient creatures that once roar
on the earth.  This mythical art can transform the human energy into
power for good or evil depending of which dragon the user decides to
adore.

The cult comes from all parts of the world, and in many ancient cultures
it was used.  However, there are different ways to learn the abilities
of the dragons.  The power of the dragons gives to the user the power
over many elements among other powers.  But the resonance among the
different dragons provokes the user to look for the challenge of other
dragons.  Those who pay respect to the legends will fight for honor. But
those blinded by ambition and power will destroy the adversaries to gain
more power from the defeated dragon.

The dragons have been in many different ways and in very different
persons along the history.  They have decided some important parts of
mankind during many centuries.  Sometimes, evil dragons raise to gain
power to become superior over other dragons and rules.  Unavoidably, the
dragons must clash to balance the power and keep peace.

The humans are conducts to the dragons energy, and can live in harmony
or be consumed by the power of the dragons.  Those that had summoned a
dragon are also mark to be in constant confrontation with the rest of
the dragons and to feel the resonance of the spirits.  Only those who
train can control the full power of the dragons.  Those who don't will
live in a constant confusion because they don't know how to deal with
this kind of power.

3.2) Background Story
Sunshine City is ruined.  Decadent and corrupted, the city is a no man's
land ruled by the law of the strongest.  The police and the national
army are not able to stop the violence wave along with the corruption in
the government and others authorities that make the situation worse.

Among the chaotic situation exist a strong group that practice the
religious worship to the BLACK DRAGON.  This group is quite recent but
has gain a lot of young followers with their faith lost in life and in a
world in economic recession and severe climatic crisis.  The leader of
this sect is a young and powerful heir with a sumptuous mansion set in
one island close to the Sunshine Bay.  From their, this young man
controls the city in totality and the fates of many people.

This man has been possessed by the evil spirit of the BLACK DRAGON, an
ancient spirit confined in a sacred stone and it was awaken by this
powerful man.  Long ago, he was a martial student, tenacious and strong
but also too ambitious.  Because of this, he was expulsed from the dojo
where he was learning the ways of the dragons along with the SHO SETZU
KEN art.  Because of this, he promises that his old master will be trash
for rejecting him.  So, he steal one of the old seals that kept the
BLACK DRAGON spirit.  His anger and hate feed the BLACK DRAGON spirit
and took possession of him and became a powerful leader.  With his
power, his cult grow quickly and overpowered the Sunshine City
authorities, and now, its expanding through the country.  This has
happen in humanity several times, and now, it will happen again.

This sect will overwhelm in a way or another the life of many people in
Sunshine City.  The sect has grow more and more ruthless.  So this time,
when two brothers feel the need for confrontation, that flows from the
BLACK DRAGON energy.  The dragons have the destiny to fight each other
and they can't escape from it.  The confrontation is set!  The dragons
are summonded!  This is the...

3.3) Rage of the Dragons
Old master of the SHO SETZU KEN and guardian of some of the Dragon
Spirits have travel long time ago and stay in Sunshine City when it was
a blooming community in development.  From there, he will look to
fulfill his mission, and the task of guardian of the dragon symbols is
to keep alive the ancient art of the SHO SETZU KEN, but he will commit a
mistake...

Knowing the power of the dragons and feared to not find nobody capable
of keeping the seals, he took the decision of inserting the spirit of
the dragons in his most noble students.

He found two brothers with the natural spirit of the dragon born with
them, something very unusual.  This young blood came from Jimmy and
Billy Lewis.  This brother were from a violent family that make big
brother Jimmy to escape from it with his younger brother and they were
welcome by Master Lee.  He felt the energy that marks those who can
achieve the enlightment of the dragon, so he started the training of
both brothers on different worships.  Jimmy started the training on the
RED DRAGON, while Billy did the same with the BLUE DRAGON.  But a
tragedy and a dispute between both brothers after Marian's death, the
girlfriend of Jimmy, make them to split and leave the training.

The old master knew that this could be dangerous because they did not
achieve enough discipline to control the dragons power that lives inside
them.  After the confrontation, both brothers took different ways in a
self quest to find more about the dragons and how to control the power
that lives inside them and grows each time more and more.

Knowing that his days where count, the master decide to give to his
grandaughter, Lynn Baker, the WHITE DRAGON seal and train her in this
art to have a successor.  But he did not expected that an old student
returned to show how powerful he became with the BLACK DRAGON spirit.
So he confronted his old master, but because of his elderly age, the old
man died before the fight.  After he left the dojo, Lynn returned to the
site after she escaped from the training.  She felt the fall of a dragon
and the rising power of a new one.  This energy was felt also to by the
brothers who decide to return to the city, each one by their own side to
know what is going on, while the power of the BLACK DRAGON keeps growing
more and more powerful.

the characteristic that your surrending partner will give you his

wrestling circuits and after a world tour around the world, his fame
grew.  In those constant world tours, he liked to check for street
fights in all the countries he visited.

One day, in California, he assisted to a private fight.  There he met
Mr.Jones, a B-movies action hero, but also an excellent fighter.  After
the fight, they met on the street.  Kang just knew some words in English
and Mr.Jones some in Korean, but after a while of funny chat with signs
and pantomime, both were very good friends.

But Kang's dream was beyond the arena.  Since his childhood, he had the
dream to produce films like those he collected.  Action movies from all
around the world could be seen in Kang's house.  He knew he had the
resources to fulfilled his dream, but he needed help and who's better
than his old friend Jones for this task.

He establish his company and headed to America to met Jones in Sunshine
City, where the actor was shooting his last film: "BIG TROUBLE IN GROOVY
CHINA".  There, he talk about the project with Mr.Jones.  Jones was
pleased with the idea and he knew the right people for that.  But first,
he wanted Kang to go with him to check about the rumor of a incredible
foe that called himself "BLACK DRAGON".  Kang accepts because he never
refuses a good fight.  While they get into the city, both decides the
title for their first movie: "ENTER THE FUNKY DRAGON".

Radel's lineage is lost in the mist times.  His family is descendant
from a clan that is slowly disappearing.  Along the centuries, they have
fought the mystic beings that exist in our world; those that cause pain
because of the ambition of power and the dark side that dominates them.
It's believed that the mighty hero Siegfried, who battle and slain a
dragon, might be an ancestor of Radel.  Before this dragon died, he
anticipated his return to cause more mayhem in the world.

When Radel was just a small kid, an evil curse struck his family.
Weakened for years of combat, Radel's parents where killed in battle
against the BLACK DRAGON and others spirits. When Radel saw his parents
died in front of his eyes, he made a promise to follow what his father
had taught him: never to use his soul to fight unless it was for a fair
cause.  He knew then, which was his destiny.

He began to train hard along with his brother.  When both finish they
decided to leave their hometown to search the BLACK DRAGON and they took
the road.  Their grandfather told them that the family was almost
extinct and they should be very careful and confident on their souls to
make the correct decisions.  Finally, he told Radel to visit the
patriarch of the Murakami family.  He would know how to help him in this
quest.

Radel head up for Japan and lost trace of his brother who took a
different way.  In Japan, he finally met the patriarch of the Murakami
clan.  He also met Annie, a young girl with psycho powers and her
mysterious black cat that she's adopted.  Annie was ready to leave for

such a small girl.  But he knew that he should follow his grandfather's
advice.

Her parents insisted that she was too young and inexpert to confront

-	Eddie : Maybe...  But there still a lot to do in this city.
-	Sailor : Sir!  We haven't found anything near the explosion site,
	no bodies or survivor.
-	Eddie : Well, it looks like somebody help us to destroy the sect.
-	Wong : I think there still a lot to do about this sect problem.

8.2) Billy & Lynn
-	Lynn : Wha...  What happened?  The Black Dragon!?
-	Billy : He's gone Lynn.  Don't worry about it.  Now stay calm...
	I'll take care of you.
-	Lynn : But...
-	Billy : Shhhhhhh...  Just stay calm...

2 days later...

-	Lynn : Are you serious?  Please Billy.  Don't go.  I need your
	help.
-	Billy : Lynn, you should be resting.  Now it's all over.
-	Lynn : No, it's not.  Who will take care of grandpa's dojo?  Who
	will take care of the seals?
-	Billy : I'm pretty sure that you will make a wonderful job, Lynn.
-	Lynn : You think that?...  Thank you.
-	Billy : Cutie...  You are still the same.
-	Lynn : Goodbye Billy!!!

After a moment...

-	Billy (in his car) : Sorry Lynn, but I have some unfinished
	business with my brother...  And I feel that this is not over yet.
	The Black Dragon was only the beginning.

And in the street...

-	Kid 1 : Wow!  You saw that car!!!
-	Kid 2 : An impressive 1977 with 220hp and turbo engine...
-	Kid 3 : Is that your boyfriend, Sensei?
-	Lynn : Eeeh...  ki... kids, lets go inside...


8.3) Oni & Cassandra
-	Cassandra : Enough of this.  Please don't keep going.  Enough of
	this destruction.  Please...
-	Oni (talking to Johann) : I can't believe it!!!  I'm tired of
	leaving scumbags like you alive.  You don't have answers.  You
	have no use for me.  Hell's waiting you.

A flash of light, then...

-	Oni (carrying Cassandra on his back) : Soon, you will be ok
	Cassandra.  I know that you suffer the same as I.  Even if you
	fight it.  But I can feel that soon, we will know the truth about
	this rage.  Thrust me...


8.4) Pupa & Pepe
-	Pepe : Ay ay ay ay...  I hope they won't charge us for this mess.
-	Pupa : He is not here!  He his not here!  It can't be...  Big
	brother is not here.  Pepe!  What can I do?
-	Pepe : Don't worry Pupa.  I'll help you to keep looking for him.
	I promise.  Now gimme a big smile and let's get out of here.
	Still I have a strange feeling about that guy.

Some times later, at school...

-	Pau : Hi Pepe!  I heard that you had a very dangerous adventure
	last night.
-	Pepe : Oh!  It's nothing really.  Just some lonely guys that tried
	to challenge me.
-	Pau : I bet you beat them.
-	Pepe : Of course!  Now, what about if we go dancing tonight?
-	Pupa : No mister!  You promise me that today...  Pepe, you liar!
-	Pepe : Pupa!?  Aaahhh!  I can explain it!!!
-	Pau : Heyyy girl!  Hands of him...  I was first!!!
-	Pepe : Hey girls!  Don't fight!  Maybe we can fix this...  How
	about if we go all together out?
-	Pau and Pupa : NO WAY!!!


8.5) Mr.Jones & Kang
-	Jones : Ha ha ha!!!  I'm the main man!!!  I'm fabulous!  I'm
	cool!!!  I'm one step closer to the great master!!!
-	Kang : Hey Jones...  I'm having an idea about this.  We might be
	rich.

Some times later...

-	Producer : Mr.Kang, this idea about a martial arts movie and
	computer graphic effects will be a success.
-	Kang : It was an idea I had from a long time ago Mr.Dino...  And
	my star, Mr.Jones, will make all the action sequence.
-	Jones : Of course!  I'm sooo good that I don't need double.  And I
	love the tight black leather clothes.

During a movie festival...

-	Actress : And now the winner!  For the best action movie "Rising
	Dragon"...  Mr.Jones!!
-	Jones : Thanks all!  It's a pleasure to receive this prize.  Now,
	I'm truly a Master of martial arts!!


8.6) Radel & Annie
-	Radel : It's all over...  Impossible...  Look out Annie!!!!

A burst of flames appears...

-	Radel : Arghhhhh...  A...  Annie...  It can be...
-	Annie : Radel!!!!!  Noooooo!!!!!!
-	Black Dragon : Your friend underestimated me!  That was a fatal
	mistake.  Enjoy your last moment with him child because I shall
	return for you.  A Dragon hunter may be very useful for my
	plans...
-	Annie : Radel!!!!  Wake up!!!  Don't leave me!!!!  You were the
	best Dragon hunter...

Some times later...

-	Annie : Radel!  What I'm going to do.  I can't hunt by myself.  I
	need your help, your strenght, your experience.  The Black Dragon
	is too powerful for me...  What do we do now, Quizi?

And a mysterious man is waiting in the dark???


8.7) Alice & Elias
All the island is breaking up...

-	Black Dragon : With her spirit, my power will be immense,
	hahahahaha.  Nobody will stop me.  Elias, you fool!  You brought
	the child to me!
-	Elias : Alice, get out of here!  Quickly!
-	Alice : But Father...  I can't leave you here!
-	Elias : Escape my child.  Now you are free!
-	Alice : Father Elias!!!!!!!!!

Some days later...

-	Alice (thinking on a swing) : Father Elias...  It looks like now
	I'm alone...  You are not here...  The spirit is not here.  I'm
	free at last, but I'm afraid.  What should I do now?
-	Elias (thinking in a different site): My little child...  You must
	build your own path.  Be brave and have a humble heart.  I must go
	now.  I will follow the lord wishes to seek the Black Dragon.
	Take care my child.  I'll be watching you.


8.8) Jimmy & Sonia
-	Jimmy : Are you ok?
-	Sonia : Ye...  Yes...  What happened?
-	Jimmy : Too much power to handle.  What a jerk.  The pain is still
	the same...

Some times later, in a cemetary...

-	Jimmy (in front of a tombstone) : Hello baby...  It's been a long
	time...  There are things I haven't not fixed yet.  But besides
	that, there is something wrong and I think this is only the
	beginning.
-	Sonia : So, who was she anyway?
-	Jimmy : "She" was somebody special for me!  So keep your mouth
	shut!
-	Sonia : Sorry, but I was just asking why we are here.
-	Jimmy : She died because of my fault...  And I must live with
	that...  You had your vengeance!  Why are you still here?
-	Sonia (thinking) : That was not a vengeance.  I was only returning
	a favor.  I think I should thank you for saving me last night.
-	Sonia : Now, what are we going to do?
-	Jimmy : ... (He's gone)
-	Sonia : Jimmy, you are so rude to leave a lady alone here.  Well,
	I think the chase game starts again.  I will catch you Jimmy...
	Ok, let's go!


8.9) Abubo
-	Abubo : Ha ha ha!  Abubo power is superior.  Abubo strenght is
	greater than ridiculous mystic power.  Now Abubo will rule
	completely this city!!!!

Some times later, Abubo now rules over the mafia groups with force.

-	Reporter 1 : Mr.Abubo, what do you think of the rumors that
	connect you with the mafia??
-	Reporter 2 : What about the rumors for political corruption that
	surrounds your person??
-	Abubo : No comments!


8.10) Extra Ending
Some times after the battle with Johann...

-	Jimmy : What are you doing here?
-	Billy : I need to talk with you about all this mess the Black
	Dragon made.  Jimmy, this is important.  This is not over yet.  I
	can feel it.  Jimmy!  Are you listening to me?
-	Jimmy : ...
-	Billy : I know that it hurts about what happen to Marian, but it
	wasn't your fault.  You must forget that!

A flash of light, and Billy is down...

-	Jimmy : You know nothing!!  And I don't care about the Black
	Dragon!
-	Billy : Jimmy, please...  You need to forget her.  Wake up! I need
	your help on this.  You can't run forever Jimmy.  Someday, the
	Rage of the Dragon will consume you.  The spirit is to strong and
	you feed it with hate!
-	Jimmy : Don't worry about me little brother.  I'll be ready if
	that's my destiny.  And for the Black Dragon, don't worry if he
	gets in my way.  I'll take him down.
-	Billy : You don't understand, but I wish you good luck anyway...


SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THE ENDINGS : In some of the endings, I tried
to correct the text because of the bad "engrish" we are used to
know from SNK/Playmore and Co.


9) AUTHOR NOTES
-  Maybe sometimes, I will made new sections about the Team Duplex
   attacks and other moves combinations for all the characters.
-  Like I said before, I probably make some mistake about the names and
   the background of the characters; the controls; the combos; the names
   and the motion of the special moves.  Sometimes, I tried to translate
   the japanese names, but my japanese it's not so good.
-  The entire story of the game and the characters  backgrounds are from
   the Evoga Entertainment site (www.evoga.com) and the Noise Factory
   site (www.noise.co.jp) and the Playmore site (www.playmore.co.jp).
   You must take a look at this site if you didn't do it already.

   Entertainment site (www.evoga.com), the Noise Factory site
