All the moves in this FAQ are displayed using written notation.  If you
are on the second player (right) side, you will be facing the other way,
so reverse all left- and right-based directions.  Use the buttons to
inflict damage, and the joystick to maneuver yourself around the playing
field.  Use a combination of joystick directions anStrong Kicks to perform
special moves and other various commands.  Move notation includes:

 QCF  (Quarter Circle Forward)   Rotate joystick from D to DF to F.
 QCB  (Quarter Circle Backward)  Rotate joystick from D to DB to B.
 HCF  (Half Circle Forward)      Rotate joystick from B to D to F.
 HCB  (Half Circle Backward)     Rotate joystick from F to D to B.

Otherwise, moves are performed by pressing in one of eight directions
(the 'neutral' position is not listed unless for an alternate joystick
command), then in another direction, and so on, before pressing a
button.

This section lists each character, their name, what team they're
affiliated with, some quick stats. on that character, and then a listing
of their throw techniques, command attacks, special moves, Desperation
Moves (DMs) and Super Desperation Moves (SDMs).  Following the main
moves list is a short listing of character quotes (and if applicable,
English translations of what they say).  Note that quotes are not listed
for attacks if the person is saying the name of their attack (such as
Terry yelling 'Power Wave!' during the Power Wave).  The format for this
section is as follows:

J:  The Japanese move name.
E:  An English translation of the move name.
M:  How to perform the move.
H:  How many hits the move causes.
C:  Comments on using the move.

Not all of these criteria apply to every move (for example, you don't
need a hit count for throws), in which case the useless criteria simply
isn't written.  Note that ALL hit information is taken from the Sega
Saturn version of this game.

ON A MOONLIT NIGHT, IORI GOES INSANE DUE TO OROCHI BLOOD
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

'Orochi' Iori is similar to the normal version of Iori, with these
differences:

 - He only gets one hit off a weak Oni Yaki.

 - He gains Power Gauge energy when performing command attacks (the
   Yuri Ori, Gou Fu In 'Shinigami', or the Yumebiki).

 - He has a faster walking/recovery speed.

 - He has better move recovery time and can do combos/juggles that
   the normal Iori can't do (such as having two Yami Barais on screen
   at one time).

 - His jumps are different and now are closer to the ground (his
   Middle Jump is similar to normal Iori's Small Jump).

 - All his moves come out faster and do more damage.

differences:

 - She has a faster walking/recovery speed.

 - All her moves come out faster and do more damage.

 - She has better move recovery time and so can do combos/juggles that
   the normal Leona can't do (such as juggling a crouching D kick into

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
OROCHI
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

(no bio sheet available)


E:  Invisible Throw
M:  When close, B / F + Strong Punch / Strong Kick
C:  Unlike any other character in the game, Orochi cannot throw a
    character behind him, even with the Strong Kick version.


E:  Black Projectile
M:  QCF + Weak Punch
H:  Weak 5
C:  Can be followed by his 'Bright Light' DM/SDM.


E:  Upward Shield
M:  QCF + Strong Punch
H:  Strong 1
C:  No attack will be made unless Orochi is close to a character or
    if that character jumps into the range of his hand.  The pattern
    on the shield is the same as the one on his chest (which is
    incidentally the title drawing of this FAQ as well).


E:  Forward Shield
M:  QCF + Weak Kick
H:  Weak 1
C:  No attack will be made unless Orochi is close or his opponent
    walks up to him.  Otherwise, it's the same as the 'Upward Shield'.


E:  Attack Cancel
M:  QCF + Strong Kick after any attack
H:  Strong 0
C:  This will cancel the remaining frames of whatever move you were
    doing with Orochi (he recovers instantly).  This can be used to
    perform some pretty nasty combos.


E:  Lightning Strike
M:  HCB + P / K
H:  Weak 1, Strong 1
C:  The button used determines where the lightning bolt strikes; A is
    the location closest to Orochi, D is the farthest.


E:  Bright Light
M:  QCB + P
H:  Weak 8, Strong 8 (DM)
    Weak 8, Strong 8 (SDM)
C:  This move will always hit an opponent unless they are blocking.
    It sometimes 'glitches' and the Rush Counter increases by 3-4
    hits.


E:  Soul Stealer
M:  F,D,DF + P
H:  Weak 1, Strong 1 (DM)
    Weak 1, Strong 1 (SDM)
C:  This move draws an opponent towards Orochi.  If that person gets
    close enough, Orochi attacks them.  However, if that person is at
    the far end of the screen, Orochi will stop pulling them in and
    they will not be hit.  If his opponent jumps over him, Orochi will
    create a double in the opposite direction to drag in his foe.


EXTRA INFORMATION ON OROCHI:

 - Orochi's standing Weak Kick and Strong Punch both cause block damage.
 - His standing Strong Kick is a knockdown move.
 - He cannot crouch.
 - I can't seem to CD counter with him (you know, Strong Punch + Strong
   Kick).
 - Any version of his jump attack can cross up.
 - However, other than that, he plays just like normal and can taunt,
   use any Extra or Advanced mode ability (that's available in Practice
   Mode), etc.


COMBOS:

 Weak Punch, Weak Kick (2 hits)
 Strong Punch, Strong Kick (2 hits)
 Weak Punch, Forward Shield (2 hits)
 Weak Kick, WK Lightning Strike (2 hits)
 Black Projectile (use Special mode, any button), Black Projectile
 (perform manually)  (5+ hits)
 Weak Punch / Weak Kick, Strong Punch, Bright Light (9 hits)
 Black Projectile, juggle with Bright Light (13 hits)
 Weak Punch, Weak Kick, Bright Light (10 hits)
 Jumping Strong Punch, Weak Punch, Weak Kick, Bright Light (11 hits)
 Black Projectile, Run forward (Advanced), Light Punch, Light Kick,
 Bright Light (15 hits)

GLITCHES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

FROM ME!:
  In Training Mode, Kyo vs. Chang, 7 hit Orochi Nagi in corner earns you
  "Task Over !!"  This glitch also appears in the arcade version, but
  I don't know what causes it or what the message means.  I've been able
  to do this twice now.

FROM DARKLANCER:
  Sie's opponent can't block his Chou Kyuu Dan attack while Sie is
  performing the Niku Man o Kuu DM / SDM.  (Example: D + Strong Kick,
  Chou Kyuu Dan, Niku Man o Kuu.)

FROM TONY W.:
  Ryo's Strong Punch throw (Tani Otoshi) cannot be escaped from.

FROM SCRUB:
  During Chang's Tekkyuu Funsai Geki, if his opponent jumps over him
  during the 'spinning ball' animation, that person will get hit for
  almost 75% damage!

FROM JAMES KUROKI:
  Play with Orochi Leona and use the Strong Punch version of the Eye
  Slasher.  Have your opponent dodge it, roll past it, or guard it (so
  that it will pass by them), and then make them walk right up to you.
  Immediately have your opponent attack Leona with a weak attack (A or
  B).  Right before the Eye Slasher returns, have Leona throw the
  opponent using any throw.  This will freeze the character and he or
  she will follow you around.  If you use the Strong Punch throw (Leona
  Crush), you will drain your opponent's energy.  To unfreeze your
  opponent, wait until time runs out, or use the I Slasher again.  If
  you use the Strong Kick throw after freezing them (Audel Buckler), the
  only move that will damage them is the jumping version of Futtobashi
  Kougeki.  However, you can still use the I slasher to unfreeze them.

FROM JAMES KUROKI:
  Pick either normal Iori or Orochi Iori.  Your opponent must be someone
  with a quick forward dash (like Choi).  Have that person dash towards
  Iori and have then continue dashing.  While this is going on, have
  Iori roll past them and let them run against the edge of the screen.
  Move Iori to the opposite end of the screen, then make him throw an
  Weak Punch Yami Barai.  Then have him dash forward until he's standing
  behind his opponent's back and quickly use the Ya Otome (DM only), so
  that the thrown Yami Barai hits at the same time or after the Ya Otome
  begins.  If done correctly, when the Yami Barai hits, Iori will be
  pushed away while continuing the Ya Otome.  He'll stop right before
  the final hit.  From now on, Iori is invincible, although he can't
  move.  Projectiles will also pass through him.  If his opponent
  moves next to him, he'll finish the remainder of the Ya Otome.

FROM JAMES KUROKI:
  Pick either normal Iori or Orochi Iori, '94 Style Kyo Kusanagi,
  Athena, Sie, or Mai.  Throw a weak projectile with them, then run
  up and throw your opponent.  If you're able to throw them at the
  same time the projectile hits, they'll take extra damage.

FROM JAMES KUROKI:
  Pick Billy Kane.  If his opponent throws him out of the Chou Kaen
  Senpuu Kon, the fire wheel will remain around billy, who can move
  and attack freely (and use the fire wheel to rack up a 99-hit combo!)

FROM JAMES KUROKI:
  Pick Clark.  Normally, his Frankensteiner is slow, but makes Clark
  invincible for a long time (most of the moves' animation).  If you
  imput the motion for the Weak Super Argentine Backbreaker (hcf + B;
  it doesn't have to hit), the Frankenstiner comes out quicker but has
  a reduced period of invincibility.  To reverse this, do the command
  for the Strong SAB  (hcf + D) anywhere on screen (while jumping,
  while knocked down, while attacking, etc.)  Also, if you use the
  Rolling Cradle or Super Argentine Backbreaker, the Frankensteiner
  returns to normal.

INFINITE COMBOS  (from various people)
  This varies with each character, but the basic idea is to hit with
  a special move, then follow with a 'whiffed' attack (one that doesn't
  hit).  You can then perform the special move again and it will
  connect (you can do this forever.  For an example, you can do King's
  Weak Surprise Rose in the corner, follow with a ducking Weak Punch
  attack, then repeat the Weak Suprise Rose, and so on.  Iori can
  attack with a Weak Aoi Hana, a Strong Aoi Hana, then 'whiff' a ducking
  Weak Punch attack, and repeat starting from the Weak Aoi Hana.

OROCHI'S INFINITE COMBOS  (from Victor Huang)
  Get your opponent in the corner, then do Weak Kick, qcf + Strong Kick
  (cancel), and repeat.  Or, get Orochi's opponent in the corner and
  position Orochi either right next to him or her, or place him at the
  far edge of the screen.  Input qcf + Weak Punch for his projectile,
  then move forward a bit during the 3rd / 4th hits and fire off another
  projectile.  You can do this endlessly.

MORE GLITCHES  (from Gunsmith)
  Pick Orochi Leona vs. Mary or Shermie.  Have Leona perform the Eye
  Slasher, then Have Mary or Shermie command throw her just as the
  Eye Slasher is about to hit them from behind.

  If you perform the Orochi Iori glitch (the throw one, not the DM one),
  and wiggle the joystick / perform any DM repeatedly, you'll get four
  Ioris to appear on the screen.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
PLAYING THE GAME
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

After beginning the game, choose what mode of play your team will use.
Then pick the three members of your team, using the Punch buttons for one
costume color, or the Kick buttons for another.  The mode of play you
selected will determine which of the two Punch or Kick colors you will
end up with.  After that, select the order of your teammates for the
upcoming battle (you can view character relations during this time) and
then the battle will begin.

The object of the battle is to beat all the members of your opponents'
team while keeping your own members alive for as long as possible.  To
defeat an opponent's team member, reduce his/her Life bar to zero by
using attacks and special moves.  Be careful, because this is your
opponent's goal as well.  If you receive enough damage (and are using
Extra Mode), your Life bar will flash to let you know that you are
about to lose.  Remember, you can gain life back after each round by
playing aggressively, so try not to be too defensive or you won't get
that much life back.  The faster you defeat your opponent, the more
life you'll receive.

Each battle is broken down into rounds.  A round ends when one person is
defeated, both are defeated at the same time, or the round timer reaches
00.  When this happens, the person with more life remaining is declared
the winner.  If both people have the same amount of life, a draw game
occurs, and the next set of teammates replace their allies (the same
thing happens in the event of two players losing at the same time).  If
there are no teammates left, then the person with more previous
victories is the winner.  If the number of victories is the same, then
those two characters must fight a final round in which they both have
less life (1/4th of a bar).  If this round ends in a draw, both players
lose.

As for the scoring system, it only works in one-plyaer mode.  You get
20,000 points for a straight victory (one character), and a 10,000
point bonus for each perfect.  If you lose and continue, your score is
reset.  Points are awarded for time remaining, health, and attacks that
hit (blocked attacks, even DMs, garner no points).

After selecting your team, you fight six other teams, then a battle
with either Orochi Leona or Orochi Leona, depending on the following:

 You'll fight Orochi Leona if:
  - Iori is in your team.
  - You're playing with the 'Ralf and Clark' team.

 You'll fight Orochi Iori if:
  - Iori is _not_ in your team.
  - You're playing with the 'Iori and Leona' team.

After fighting either of them, there's a battle with the Orochi New
Faces Team, then a battle against Orochi (Orochi Chris with the power
of Orochi).

Note that the teams you fight are often edited teams, and you may have
notice that the edited teams that you can fight are _never_ the edited
teams with special endings.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
TWO MODES OF PLAY
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prior to picking your team members, you will be asked to select the type
of controls you wish to use for the remainder of the game.  What you
select not only determines the techniques available to you in the game,
but changes the colors of your characters' clothing as well.  The two
control types are:


ADVANCED MODE  __________________________________________________________

As Advanced Mode users fight, they build up enery in their Power Gauge.
Instead of having the Power Gauge max out, the energy in a filled Gauge
is transferred to a 'point'--you can store up to three of these at a
time and they are displayed next to the Power Gauge.  points can be
used up by activating DMs.  They can also be used activate the Power
Gauge, which maxes it out.  If you use a point while maxed out, you'll
perform a SDM instead of a DM.

   E:  Guard
   M:  Hold B / DB  (air)
   C:  Guarding DB will still leave you open to overhead attacks.


   J:  Dash  (Hashiri)
   E:  Dash  (Run)
   M:  Tap / Hold F,F  (or tap F, hold DF for Charge Dash)
   C:  If your character has a 'Charge D,U'-type move, you can use
       the Charge Dash to move forward while preparing that move.
       For example, you can dash forward with Kim and then use a
       Kuu Sa Jin.


   E:  Backstep
   M:  Tap B,B


   J:  Shou Jump
   E:  Small Jump
   M:  Tap UB~UF


   J:  Chuu Jump
   E:  Middle Jump
   M:  Press UB~UF


   J:  Dai Jump
   E:  Big Jump
   M:  Tap D, UB~UF / Dash or Run, then Jump / QCB,UB / QCF,UF


   J:  Kinkyuu Kaihi Zenpou
   E:  Emergency Evade Forward
   M:  Press A + B
   C:  You are partially invincible while rolling.


   J:  Kinkyuu Kaihi Kouhou
   E:  Emergency Evade Backward
   M:  Press Back + A + B
   C:  You are partially invincible while rolling.


   J:  Down Kaihi
   E:  Down Evade  (Recovery Roll)
   M:  Press A + B as you land from the air.
   C:  You'll roll when you land from being knocked in the air
       and take less damage.


   J:  Guard Cancel Kinkyuu Kaihi Zenpou / Kouhou
   E:  Guard Cancel Emergency Evade Forward / Backward
   M:  Guard against an attack, then press A + B / Back + A + B
   C:  Requires a maxed out Power Bar or an unused point to use.


   E:  Guard Reversal
   M:  Guard against an attack, then press C + D
   C:  Requires a maxed out Power Bar or an unused point to use.


   J:  Nage Hazushi    
   E:  Throw Escape
   M:  Press A + B just as your opponent attempts to perform a
       normal ground throw on you (not a command throw).
   C:  To help time this move, watch for the blue 'throw spark'
       that appears prior to a successful throw.


   J:  Futtobashi Kougeki
   E:  Strike Attack
   M:  Press C + D  (air)
   C:  This move has a brief lag but will knock down a hit opponent.


   J:  Engo Kougeki
   E:  Cover Attack
   M:  Tap A + B + C rapidly when dizzied or when in an opponent's
       grab (not a throw), or repeated attack (such as the Ryuu Renda).
   C:  There are three requirements that must be fulfilled in order
       for the Engo Kougeki to work:

         - Your Life Gauge must be at 50% or lower.
    
         - You must be dizzy or being in a grab/repeated attack.
           Grabs include Chang's Kusari Jime or Choi's Zujou Sashi,
           while repeated attacks include Sie's Ryuu Renda or Joe's
           Bakuretsu Ken.
    
         - You must have an undefeated teammate left in your party,
           and you must be near them (they have to be on-screen) in
           order for this attack to work.  That teammate must also
           have a friendly relationship with the character you're using.

         - In addition, if your Life Gauge is lower than your enemy's
           or is _very_ low, that increases the chance of the attack
           working.  It's not a requirement, though.


   E:  Activate Power Gauge
   M:  Press A + B + C at once.
   C:  Requires one unused point to activate.  Once activated, your
       attack power increases by 25%, and you have the ability to use
       one SDM per unused point.


   J:  Chouhatsu
   E:  Provoke / Taunt
   M:  Press Start
   C:  You can cancel taunt animation by dashing or backstepping.
       While taunting, you may have partial invincibility (it
       depends on the character).


EXTRA MODE  _____________________________________________________________

When an Extra Mode user loses enough life, their Life Gauge begins to
flash red.  During this time, they can use DMs.  If their Power Gauge
is maxed out as well, they can use SDMs.  Maxing out a Power Gauge
while your Life Gauge isn't flashing means that you can only use DMs.

   E:  Guard
   M:  Hold B / DB  (air)
   C:  Guarding DB will still leave you open to overhead attacks.


   J:  Dash  (Issokutobi)
   E:  Dash
   M:  Tap F,F


   E:  Backstep
   M:  Tap B,B


   J:  Chuu Jump
   E:  Middle Jump
   M:  Press UB~UF


   J:  Dai Jump
   E:  Big Jump
   M:  Tap UB,UB  or  UF,UF


   J:  Kougeki Sake
   E:  Attack Evade
   M:  Press A + B
   C:  While 'in the background' you can still be hit with normal throws
       and command throws.


   J:  Down Kaihi
   E:  Down Evade  (Recovery Roll)
   M:  Press A + B as you land from the air.
   C:  You'll roll when you land from being knocked in the air
       and take less damage.


   J:  Guard Cancel Kinkyuu Kaihi Kouhou
   E:  Guard Cancel Emergency Evade Backward
   M:  Guard against an attack, then press A + B.
   C:  Requires a maxed out Power Bar to use.


   E:  Guard Reversal
   M:  Guard against an attack, then press C + D
   C:  Requires a maxed out Power Bar to use.


   J:  Futtobashi Kougeki
   E:  Strike Attack
   M:  Press C + D  (air)
   C:  This move has a brief lag but will knock down a hit opponent.


   J:  Engo Kougeki
   E:  Cover Attack
   M:  Tap A + B + C rapidly when dizzied or when in an opponent's
       grab (not a throw), or repeated attack (such as the Ryuu Renda).
   C:  There are three requirements that must be fulfilled in order
       for the Engo Kougeki to work:

         - Your Life Gauge must be at 50% or lower.
    
         - You must be dizzy or being in a grab/repeated attack.
           Grabs include Chang's Kusari Jime or Choi's Zujou Sashi,
           while repeated attacks include Sie's Ryuu Renda or Joe's
           Bakuretsu Ken.
    
         - You must have an undefeated teammate left in your party,
           and you must be near them (they have to be on-screen) in
           order for this attack to work.  That teammate must also
           have a friendly relationship with the character you're using.

         - In addition, if your Life Gauge is lower than your enemy's
           or is _very_ low, that increases the chance of the attack
           working.  It's not a requirement, though.


   J:  Chikara Tame
   E:  Power Collect
   M:  Press and Hold A + B + C
   C:  Continuing to do this will incrase and max out your Power Gauge.
       When you have a maxed Power Gauge, your attack power increases
       by 50%.  You can also use DMs.  If your life bar is red as well,
       you'll use SDMs instead.


   J:  Chouhatsu
   E:  Provoke / Taunt
   M:  Press Start
   C:  You can cancel taunt animation by dashing or backstepping.
       While taunting, you may have partial invincibility (it
       depends on the character).


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIGHT INFORMATION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's some extra information the attributes of certain moves, how they
work, etc.:

AUTOGUARD
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some moves have this, but most don't.  When using a move with autoguard,
you will see the 'block sparks' and take block damage from attacks if
you're attacked while using that move, instead of being knocked out of
the attack.  Autoguard doesn't always kick in, but in some cases, it
will block an otherwise unblockable move (such as Kyo's Oni Yaki vs.
Ralf's Galactica Phantom DM).


COMMAND ATTACKS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Among the command attacks, there are some that are chainable (can be done
after a normal attack), and some that can be cancelled (can be followed
by a special move).  Note that chainable commmand attacks lose their
'attributes' if chained (for example, Andy's Uwa Agito will lose it's
overhead ability if chained).


COUNTER
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
This occurs when your enemy is attacking, and you make an attack that
hits them out of their assault.  When you counter, it functions like the
'Critical' effect.  You can get a Critical Hit and Counter at the same
time, which gives you a larger window of time in which to attack your
opponent.  If you're the victim of a Counter, any move that you're hit
with afterwards does more damage.


CRITICAL HIT
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Moves will cause this at random, but some moves will cause it more often
than others.  When it happens, the reaction time on the move is cut,
giving you a split-second to attack with another move or even a DM, in
some cases.


GUARD CRUSH
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Keep blocking attacks and this will happen to you (it's not determined by
total number of blocked hits, but how many hits were blocked in a brief
period--on average, 12 Strong Punch or Strong Kick hits).  When it
happens, you stop blocking and take a small amount of damage.  If this
happened to you during a multi-hit attack, you are open to other hits
and these will inflict full damage.  Also, note that if you are a victim
of Guard Crush, you will lose your Power Gauge energy if it's maxed (in
Extra Mode), or lose your activated point (in Advanced Mode).


OVERHEADS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usually, only Command Attacks are overheads, but some Special Moves and
even normal attacks (like Yashiro's standing Strong kick), have this
ability.  Normally, a person who is blocking high can be hit by low
attacks, and if they are blocking low, they are defended from high and
low attacks.  However, a move with the 'overhead' ability will hit that
person if they are crouch blocking (it doesn't work against a person who
is in a high block).  This is a useful way to deal with 'turtle' players
who block constantly, especially for characters who don't have fast
command throws.


REVERSALS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
These are moves which will stop an enemy's attack and make your character
strike back with a move of their own.  Usually, a reversal only works if
used prior to being attacked (Mary or Billy's reversals), or just as your
character is attacked (Kyo or Yashiro's reversals).  Generally, reversals
will do no damage by themselves, only when they are used against an
enemy's attack.  There are some exceptions, though, such as Kyo's Nue
Tsumi, which functions as a regular move but will turn into a reversal
during an enemy attack.  Yashiro and Shermie also have reverals that can
be used as normal moves, but unlike Kyo, their moves do not change if
used for the purposing of reversing an enemy attack.  Reversals are very
specific in use (only working against high attacks, only against
projectiles, etc.)  Don't confuse these types of reversals with the
'Guard Reversal' ability (performing a CD attack while blocking) that
each character has.


THROWS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every character has two normal throws performed using the same command.
These throws cause moderate damage, and are unblockable.  In fact, they
will connect no matter what the other player is doing, exluding rolling.
However, players using 'Extra Mode' can escape from throws and take no
damage.  Throws only work when you're close to another character who's
standing on the ground, although Goro has a normal throw that will work
from a small distance away (the Okuri Ashi Barai).  Throws cannot be
reversed.

There are also air throws, which only a few characters have.  These
players include Benimaru, Yuri, Leona, Athena, and Mai.  Air throws
are unblockable, but they are rarely used in battle because you must
be close to your opponent while you're both jumping.  Chances are,
you'll end up eating your opponent's jump attack. :)

Finally, there are command throws, so named because they are performed
by entering a joystick command and pressing the appropriate button.
Command throws are for the most part very similar in that they are
unblockable and unavoidable (unless you're in the middle of a roll), and
unescapable.  Most command throws also need to performed when up close,
like normal throws, but their are exceptions to this, and there are some
command throws which are blockable.  However, command throws, like
normal throws, cannot be reversed.  Command throws vary greatly in use,
ranging from ones that can be followed up with other moves (Goro's
Arashi no Yama DM/SDM combination), to throws that inflict no damage but
leave a hit opponent open to attack (Iori's Scum Wind or Yashiro of the
Parched Earth's Kujiku Daichi).

TEAMMATE RELATIONS CHART
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prior to each new battle, you have to choose the order in which your
characters will fight.  It's then when you can pick a character, and
hold C (X in the Saturn version) to see the smiley faces that indicate
teammate relations.  Below is a key to the chart:

KK - Kyo Kusanagi                       KP - Kim Kaphwan

To use the chart, find the character you're using on the vertical row,
then look for the person you've chosen to fight after them on the
horizontal row.  As an example, let's say you're playing with Chris
and want to know how he will react towards Orochi Shermie if he dies.
Find Chris on the vertical row, then go across until you've lined up
Orochi Shermie on the same line.  An 'H' is written there, so these
two have a happy relationship and Chris would give Orochi Shermie an
extra point (if using Advanced Mode), should he lose the fight.

The faces determine how your points are affected between rounds (if
you're using Advanced Mode), and if your teammates will help you by
attacking when you input an Assistance Attack (for either play mode).
The faces include:

 Happy:   These two characters like each other*.  One point will be
          added when it is the second character's turn to play.

 Neutral: These two characters are indifferent to each other.  No
          change occurs in terms of points.

 Angry:   These two characters hate each other.  If there are any
          points in reserve, they will all be depleted.

Remember, this is only for Advanced Mode.  The faces also determine
the chance of an Assistance Attack (using Advanced or Extra mode):

 Happy:   The two characters like each other.  If undefeated, they
          will always help in an Assistance Attack.

 Neutral: These two characters are indifferent to each other.  If
          undefeated, they may or may not help in an Assistance Attack
          depending on various conditions.

 Angry:  These two characters hate each other.  Even if undefeated,
         they will never help the active character.

The faces do not affect your Power Gauge, only your stored points.  The
relation between characters is dependent on the order you have them lined
up in, so if your line up was: Kyo, Shingo, then Iori, then there'd be
a neutral relationship between Kyo and Shingo and an angry one between
Shingo and Iori.  However, if the arrangement was Shingo, Kyo, then Iori,
there'd be a happy relationship between Shingo and Kyo, and an angry
one between Kyo and Iori.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
STAGE INFORMATION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

In every stage there is a camera man watching the fight (excluding any
team with Orochi characters in it, and Orochi's stage).

China Stage - When someone is slammed or Orochi Yashiro shakes during
his winning stance, firecrackers go off in the background.  There's a
dragon in the background that moves around at the same time as well.

In the China stage, on the left edge of the screen, familiar faces will
be watching you fight.  They include (randomly):

 - Tung Fue Rue, Jubei Yamada (both eathing something), Lee Pai Long.
   (FF, FF2, AOF)
 - Eiji Kisaragi and Sokaku Mochizuki.  (AOF2 / FF3)
 - Bob Wilson and two girls.  (FF3)
 - Roddy, Cathy, and Captian Klapton.  (Top Hunter)
 - Todo, Duck King (who's trying to catch a duckling), and some guy
   with a USA fan t-shirt.  (AOF / FFS / ???)
 - The Sports Team. (KOF '94)
 - Two girls with a panther (maybe Rugal's panther)?

Steffen Kupfer (who spent nine hours getting the China list above, so
you better give him props), also notes that there's a bad spelling
error in the Monaco Stage: it says 'RUSCASS CORNER' but should read
'Rascasse Corner'.  It's a corner in the Monaco Grand Prix named after
a seafood restaurant called 'La Rascasse'.

Bali Stage - Whenever someone is slammed, the infamous Bali chicken in
the background loses some feathers.  When Orochi Yashiro is in his
'shaking' winning pose, the tribesmen in the background bow and wave
their fingers.  During Round 3, a plane from Aero Fighters 2 can be
seen flying by in the far background.  The parrot on the perche will
fly around whenever anyone is command throwed, too!

USA Stage - Again, when someone is slammed to the ground, the confetti
in the background shakes around and water splashes about.  Confetti
also falls when someone wins a round.

Korea Stage - When someone is slammed to the ground in the left corner
of the screen, the drummer here falls down and groans.  Also, the
dancers here stop spinning around and instead swing from side to side.

Monaco Stage - The stack of tires in the corner shake when someone is
slammed.  Water also splashes up onto the boat in the background.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
INTERMISSIONS AND ENDINGS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you play with a team, you'll get their unique ending.  Play with a
mix of characters (an edited team), and you'll get a generic ending.
However, just like the two special team combinations in KoF '96 (Goenitz
Team and Weapons of God Team), there are special teams in KoF '97, too,
with their own endings.  Note that any team using the New Face Team or
Iori or Leona can be replaced with their Orochi versions (won't effect
the storyline).  Here's a listing of all the possible endings:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
HERO TEAM A                                           Kyo, Benimaru, Goro
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Japan - after the usual conversation that ensues about the Orochi's,
Benimaru brings up the fact that it was odd that it was the fourth time
they'd teamed up. Kyo tells him that he's nagging and starting to sound
like an old coot, and they end up insulting each other. Goro gets them
to stop bickering, and then they all decide to go their separate ways.
First it shows Benimaru, who travelled around the world, winning contest
after contest. No longer second fiddle, he let everyone know his stuff!
Then Goro, who became the leader of Japan's Judo team, leading them to
victory. Then it shows Kyo, standing on a cliff, thinking about
everything that has gone on in the past few years. In the sky you can
see the faces of Rugal and the rest of the Hakkeshu, and then Orochi...
"surely, a lot in such a short time..."  ... then he realizes he is not
alone.  "You've come." he says. Who else would show up? "Let's end this
here."  "This is only the beginning..."


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
HERO TEAM B                                           Kyo, Benimaru, Goro
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's what's neat though... if you used Benimaru or Goro to beat Orochi,
the ending is over here (see Hero Team A). If you used Kyo, however, then
you get a special one-round bonus battle vs. Iori!  As far as I know,
winning or losing has no effect on what happens next. Which is just Kyo
and Iori taunting, trash-talking, vowing to destroy each other, and
actually doing a little fighting too.  Goes on for quite a while.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
HERO TEAM C                                           Kyo, Benimaru, Goro
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you lose to Iori, you get this ending.  It's just Iori and Kyo
talking trash to each other.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
ART OF FIGHTING TEAM                                    Ryo, Robert, Yuri
<submitted by Gar Hong>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kyokugenryu Team (After generic ending): The trio starts walking home.
They wonder if Takuma has caught the mysterious person.  They also agree
that they have proved that kyokugenryu is the strongest and have
defended the dojo's honor.  On the way they meet a man in a mask.  It's
Mr. Karate!  They groan saying "Oh no, not again!"  Mr. Karate says "You
kids did o.k."(in the tournament).  He then beckons them to guess his
identity.  They respond with "Gee, I wonder who it could be..."  Mr.
Karate then says (throw off his mask) "You guessed it!  It's the Super
Takuma Sakazaki!'  The team punches him into the sky (all you see is the
sky with a trail of smoke) saying "Get out of town you senile coot!"


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
FATAL FURY TEAM                                          Terry, Andy, Joe
<submitted by Gar Hong>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Italy (After the generic ending): The three meet in a locker room.  They
discuss their plans for the future.  Joe says that he thinks he's
prepared for anything.  "Just call me the Master of the Universe!" he
boasts.  They say goodbye to each other.  As Terry leaves, he meets Blue
Mary who's standing be a motorcycle.  She greets him and gives him her
number telling him to call her sometime.  He responds by throwing his
hat at her and saying "OK!" (like he does in one of his winning poses).


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
IKARI TEAM                                             Leona, Ralf, Clark
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ikari Warriors - Leona thinks back to how she is supposed to be
"destined" to be of Orochi blood, and thinks back to when she killed her
parents (I think). She takes the boomerang blade/hairband out of her hair
and plans on killing herself, but then Ralf stops her. Ralf tells her
that before she was alone, but now she has them to rely on. Leona thinks
back to when her father said that you make your own destiny, and she
thanks him. Ralf then gives her his bandanna, which she puts in her hair.
Umm, yeah.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
PSYCHO SOLDIER TEAM                                     Athena, Sie, Chin
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Psycho Soldier - they talk about the Orochi and how they'll be the only
ones who can stop him if he awakes from his sleep. Then they're
interrupted by a girl in a wheelchair wearing glasses who introduces
herself as Kaoru Watabe. Athena remembers that Kaoru was the fan who
wrote to them and ended up encouraging them to enter the KoF '97
tournament. Kaoru thanks them for the letter and the tickets, and Kensou
asks  "What tickets?"  Athena sent Kaoru tickets to the Finals match, and
of course Kaoru had fun cheering them on. Kaoru announces that she's been
training hard herself ever since she got out of the hospital, and then
attempts to walk. However, she falls, and Kensou attempts to dash over to
catch her, but ends up with his face in the dirt. Athena winds up
catching her instead, and after asking if each other are ok, they start
laughing. Kensou then starts saying that he'll "never be noticed. Sniff,
boo hoo".


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
KIM TEAM                                                 Kim, Chang, Choi
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Korea - Kim is shown being interviewed by... uh, some Korean news show
I guess. He says that with their victory in the KoF Tournament, he is
releasing Chang and Choi, and that they're free to do whatever they want.
After an emotional moment, they take off... the next scene shows an
airplane headed for Japan. Chang and Choi are on the plane, wearing
suits (looks funny). Turns out that they're ready to go back into crime,
and plan on starting in Japan. They then start making fun of Kim and one
of them says that he'll scream if he ever sees Kim's ugly face again.
Then someone behind them says "Naive, huh?". Yup, it's Kim! Chang and
Choi are freaked out. Kim explains that he was going to Japan to
represent Korea in a Taekwondo tournament. He realizes that he has not
spent enough time reforming Chang and Choi. He states that he will devote
his entire life to doing just that!  Chang and Choi are definitely not
happy. (and neither are KoF'ers around the world... looks like they'll
be back for '98.)


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW FACE TEAM                                     Yashiro, Shermie, Chris
<submitted by Gar Hong>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Faces Team (No generic ending): After fighting Orochi, they believe
that they have killed him.  Yashiro says that something must be
missing.  The lights go out and a sound is heard.  When the lights come
back on, Chris has been killed by Yashiro and he has his hand on
Shermie's throat.  Shermie says "CHRIS!!!".  She asks him why.  Yashiro
explains that it is the only way and says "See you on the other side."
Shermie asks "You promise?"  Yashiro than kills her and says "Orochi!  I
have killed Chris and Shermie!  Take our blood and flesh!  Take us
now!"  He then rips his own throat out.  Orochi glows and his eyes
open.  It then says "the Orochi lives again".


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
'97 SPECIAL TEAM                                       Ryuji, Mary, Billy
<submitted by Scott Fujimoto>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
After they are transported out of Orochi's dimension,
Billy: "Is it over?"
Mary: "Perhaps..."
Billy: "Yamazaki! Where're you going?"
Scene shifts to Mary holding a letter and a lit lighter.
"Yamazaki's current location: Unknown. He may be in
Hong Kong, but no clues remain. Regarding my client--Did
some research during the tournament. Turns out to
be part of Geese's massive organization. Duped by the
Geester. I've lost completely. I'll get vengeance,
though."
Scene shifts to Geese talking to Billy in his office.
Geese: "All in all, a job well done."
Billy: "Yagami's lost. But Yamazaki remains. He's Orochi,
though. That's for sure."
Geese: "I used Mary too. But losing her was a mistake."
There's a knock at the door, and it bursts open.
Geese: "Who? What?"
Billy: "Why you..."
Geese: "You got a lot of nerve, coming here! What do you
want?"
Yamazaki: (licks his lips) "You know what I want..."
(He then jumps at Geese) "My pay, buddy! Cough it up!"

'97 WOMEN'S TEAM                                       Chizuru, Mai, King
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
England - Mai, Chizuru, King, and Jan are at an amusement park. While
the rest have fun, Chizuru is looking at a lake or something, thinking
of her big sister and the Orochi. Jan comes up to her and says that he
feels safe and secure around here, and then Mai and King pop up saying
"Hey, didn't you just say that to us?" and Jan gets really nervous.
As they plan on riding the ferris wheel or something, Chizuru starts
talking to her sister again in spirit or something. Overall, somewhat
lame ending, but the mistranslation team strikes again - Jan calls Mai
"Mail"!!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SACRED FORCE TEAM                                      Kyo, Iori, Chizuru
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
God's Caliber Team - Pretty neat. Preceding the Orochi battle, they
talk about (anyone who's seen Blue Seed will experience deja vu) the 8
Kushinada girls who were meant to be sacrificed, but one was left alive,
and guess who it is? Yup, it's Yuki. Once Orochi is beaten, he says he's
going to release all his power, and then Iori freaks out (Riot of the
Blood?) and leaps at Orochi and grabs him, and they start flashing and
glowing and crap like that. Chizuru tells Kyo that he must help Iori seal
the Orochi, and then it shows him firefisting Orochi. Either before he
firefists or after (I can't remember), it shows some black-and-white
sketch of Yuki, and she DOES say something. Wow, they found a voice actor
for one whole line :P


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
'94 WOMEN'S TEAM                                          King, Mai, Yuri
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Old England Team - A beach scene. Jan is running off with Yuri's bikini
top, with Mai laughing at the situation. King can be seen at the front of
the screen, with a "My god, they're the definition of bimbos" look on her
face.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
OLD HERO TEAM                                         Athena, Ralf, Clark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
<submitted by Matt Hall>
Old SNK Hero Team - Ralf and Clark are seen as Ikari Warriors...
shirtless and with guns. They say "Mission accomplished!" and other such
things. A strange-looking Athena (I guess that's what she looks like in
Psycho Soldier) is looking at her body and says "This is... me?"  A
weird-looking Kensou is seen in the background saying "Have you
forgotten...?"


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIDEKICK TEAM                                          Benimaru, Joe, Kim
<submitted by EX Andy>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
After they beat Orochi, Benimaru starts talking about how hella great he
is. Joe threatens to humble him by beating him up, and so does Kim, so
they jump at him. That's it.  That's their ending.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SNK SUPER STAR TEAM                                       Kyo, Terry, Ryo
<submitted by Matt Hall>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Superhero Team" - Kyo says something like "Yeah, we're the strongest!"
Ryo says "Yeah, we ain't whistling Dixie!".  Terry replies with "Funny,
that's not what Robert said". Ryo: "Why, you...!!" ???


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT TEAM                                      Any combination not listed
<submitted by Dark Blaze>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Orochi asks the characters why they insisted on attacking him.  He
warns them about the end of humankind and his eventual revival before
dying.


These teams are not available in the arcade version unless your operator
has set the soft dip switches to 'English'.  They are one-picture endings
with only with a short caption included:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
"GAMEST" TEAM                                            Terry, Mary, Joe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
"NEO GEO FREEK" TEAM                                      Billy, Kyo, Mai
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
"FAMI-TSU" TEAM                                        Ryuji, Chang, Choi
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


These teams don't have special endings, but the dialogue does change
during the intermissions.   Pick the required characters and then any
character you want as long as they don't interfere as listed:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
KYO & SHINGO TEAM                                             Kyo, Shingo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
IORI TEAM                           Iori, but not Leona or Ralf and Clark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
LEONA TEAM                          Leona, but not Iori or Ralf and Clark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
RALF & CLARK TEAM                   Ralf and Clark, but not Iori or Leona
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
IORI & LEONA TEAM                                          Iori and Leona
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The order in which you pick your characters is unimportant.  For the
special endings (edited teams), you'll have to wait for the 'normal'
ending sequence to run it's course before the special ending starts up.
From my understanding of it, Shingo will always have a special ending
as long as he is paired with Kyo.  The third character is unimportant
(unless it's Benimaru, but it can't be Iori).  Furthermore, the Japan
Team has an additional ending sequence where Kyo fights Iori if you beat
Orochi using only Kyo (Hero Team B if you beat Iori, Hero Team C if you
fail).

REVISION HISTORY  _______________________________________________________

Again, due to the fact that the in-depth revision history was getting too
large, I've changed the format.  If you don't like it, let me know.

  - I actually own the game now (yeah, I know, I know), and hey, it's
    pretty good!  More updates and major corrections, obviously.  All
