    EXTRA ATTACKS
    
    Throw Moves
    throwing your opponent does not take as much damage as in any preceding 
    series, but no doubt it is still useful.
    
    Throwing options:
    1- Forward + C for all characters except Mary
    2- Back + C for Geese, Sokaku, Mary
    3- Other Throws-
    Joe, Hon Fu, Geese  - DF + C
    Mai, Sokaku         - D or DF or DB + C in air (Aerial throw)
    Mary, Geese, Sokaku - B + C then F + C
    Bob                 - FU, FU + C right when throwing (F + C)
    Andy                - D, D + C in air (Aerial throw) 
    
    
    Wake-Up Attacks
     If you press the C button at the right timing after falling down, certain 
    characters can execute a surprise wake-up attack. Beware, for if it misses, 
    you are opened to any attacks.
    The characters who can do Wake-Up Attacks are:
    
    Mai, Bob, Franco, Yamazaki, Blue Mary.
    (Except Blue Mary needs to do Down, Up + C) 
       
      
    Ground Attacks
     If Your opponent is lying on the ground, certain characters can give them 
    extra damage by doing down + C. beware, for the timing of when to execute 
    the move is different between each character.
    The characters who can do Ground Attacks are:
    
    Andy, Geese, Sokaku, Bob, HonFu, Yamazaki, Duck, Billy, Blue Mary. 
    (Blue Mary has one more- Up + C)
      
    
    Extra moves
     Although they are not special, these moves are a combination of a direction 
    and button. They are usually normal moves with a unique aspect like not 
    guardable while ducking or having a long reach.

    THE GUARD CANCEL SYSTEM
    
     If the POW meter is yellow, you can cancel your guard and counter your 
    opponent just as they attack. Think of it as the alpha counter in Street 
    Fighter Alpha (Capcom Co.), or better yet the guard cancel system from King 
    Of Fighters 95'.
     But unlike KoF95', only designated moves can be used to guard cancel 
    attacks. The following is the list for all characters.
    
    Terry    - Power Dunk
    Andy     - Shou Ryu Dan
    Joe      - Tiger Kick
    Mai      - Dragon's tail
    Geese    - Mid tackle throw,  fierce Ja-ei ken
    Sokaku   - Fire float
    Bob      - Monkey dance
    Hon Fu   - Flaming Knunchucks
    Mary     - Straight slicer
    Franco   - Double Kong
    Yamazaki - fierce Knife slash
    Chonshu  - fierce Twisting uppercut
    Chorei   - weak Twisting uppercut
    Duck     - Dancing dive
    Kim      - Air twister
    Billy    - Mid & High stick counter, Scarlet Uppercut (SDM)

    COMBINATION ATTACKS 
    
     Usually known as chain combos, these normal attacks make a combination by 
    being pressed in a rhysmical pattern. They can also be comboed to special 
    moves when done right. Since there are too many patterns of Combination arts, 
    they have been made into a simple chart here. (Ie.: For Terry, you can do 
    A B ForwardC, DownA B BackdownC, etc...) Whatever combo that does not fit 
    the chart have been listed separately.

    STRATEGIES
    
    1- Try not to move on other lines- the movement is slower than in FF3, less 
    effective, and you can easily be attacked by your opponent with the D button 
    no matter if you're on the front or the back line. Thus, only use the line 
    system if your opponent is making a big move (like a high jump or a DM).
    
    2- This time, the jump ability of all the characters have increased. It takes 
    less time to land and attack from the air than FF3. Take advantage of this 
    and jump attack your opponents more often. 
    
    3- Try not to fight using big moves- once you get a weak attack into your 
    opponent, you can easily combo it to a stronger attack.
    
    4- The High tackle throws can counter jump attacks and special moves 
    excluding projectiles. The Mid Tackle throws can counter all normal moves 
    except foot sweeps.  
    
    5- Know your opponent- That's the basics of any game, but you have to 
    especially keep in mind the characteristics of your opposing character- 
    some have Down counters, others can grab your fly kicks, etc...
    
    6- If  you have a follow-up move, try to get your opponent lying on the 
    ground using a combo instead of a normal foot sweep. It will leave them on 
    the ground for a longer time.
    
    7- If you want to see the "true ending", use Terry or Andy.
    
    8- Don't rush trying to beat the game on VS CPU! You will get an ending no 
    matter how many losses or continues, plus we've found no hidden boss at the 
    end of the game even from a result of 15 SSS on the scoreboard.   
    
    9- Two notes about special moves in FFRB- most of them don't take much 
    damage if guarded, but many of the special moves are also hard to counter. 
    Thus applying pressure to your opponent using special moves is an effective 
    technique- but just don't get TOO aggressive enough to be countered. 
    
    10- When attacking from the air, use the "turn around" system to your 
    advantage. Jump behind your opponents and attack them from the back in air 
    by turning around, just keep on pressing it rapidly and taunt your 
    opponent... etc. 
    
    11- Try to "float" your opponents in the air, leaving them vulnerable to 
    special moves and DMs. Most characters can do this by the combination attack 
    of A B DownBack C.
    
    12- Though basic enough, try to push your opponent off the end of the 
    platform. Your opponent will not fall off unless you get a clean hit 
    -anotherwards, it can take one weak punch to make your opponent fall off 
    near the end of a platform, but no matter how much you make them guard your 
    move, you'll never get them out of bounds.

    Stages-
    
    1-3   Sound Beach
    Sound Beach first appeared in FF1 when going against Michael Max. In FF3 it 
    reappeared as Terry's stage. This time you fight against 3 opponents here, 
    and the sky changes color as the time passes. Beware of the two wooden walls 
    at the end of the piers, for if they break, you can fall out of bounds. 
    (To break any of these boarders in FFRB, you must be attacking an opponent 
    close to it.)
     Then Again, if you've played the game enough, perhaps it will be fun to see 
    the reaction of the opponents. Also, you can electrocute your opponent if you 
    hit them far off the right side of the screen (the neon sign), and into a 
    different platform when to the left side.  
    
    4-6   West Subway
     This is an original stage that never appeared before. From Stages 4-5, there 
    will be people (commuters?) standing besides the edge of the screen (stage 6 
    has no boarders). They'll all collapse like the wall in Sound Beach if you 
    damage them enough.
     When the commuters on the sides go away, you can push them off the platforms 
    during round 1 and 3. On round 2, you can push them into a subway car (or 
    even "on top" of the subway car) and see them go away. Again, it is 
    interesting to see the reactions of the characters as they pop inside.  
    Some subway cars seem to be driven by a dark Terry Bogard.  
    
    7-9   East Side Park
     This is Mai's stage from FF3, but it must be a different area in the park 
    because it looks more like a museum than an aquarium. On the right side of 
    the stage, there is an elevator with a glass door. Give it enough damage and 
    it will break. And on the Left side, these is a map(?) on a wooden frame. This
    also breaks if given enough beating. 
    The reactions when your opponent falls into the elevator shaft is boring... 
    and there's no reaction if you push them off the left side, because they 
    will fall to the floor right underneath. But, if you somehow hit your 
    opponent high enough to the left side, they will stick onto the ancient 
    piniyatas (or at least, that's what they look like). 
    
    10-12 South Town Bridge
     You can see the Bridge that was once near Billy's stage in FF1. There is a 
    boat right on the left side of all the cargo. hit the crates enough times 
    and you will see. When the Boat is opened, you can roll right inside, and 
    if it isn't, you'll just sink into the water (same reaction as in Sound Beach. 
     On the right side, there are people working on some lighting right near a 
    oil truck, and if you break their equipment, you'll be looking for some 
    electrocution when out of bounds. Even more, you'll be seeing some fire in 
    the next round because the oil truck will leak. Thank God the fire fighters 
    will come around on time, but they won't help you from burning if you get 
    out of bounds.
     Also, try to push your opponents to the left side very high- they'll hit 
    the boat's exterior too. 
    
    
    13    Geese Tower
     This is where you fought against Geese in FF1, FF3, FFS, FF3... but this 
    will be his last time fighting here, ever. Fortunately for him there's more 
    than enough room to do the fighting here. In fact, you can keep on walking 
    forever and never stop. That's right, this room is in a infinity loop, and 
    there's no way of winning until you put an end to Geese's life! 
     Other than that and the written stuff in the background which changes in a 
    pattern every time you loop, there's nothing interesting about this stage. 
    Of course to make the end dramatic, you can finish your opponent to the front 
    of the stage (zoom) like in FF3, but of course you can do it in any other 
    stages as well, unlike FF3. Also unlike FF3, you can't finish your opponent 
    pushing them back of the stage and expect something to happen, because 
    nothing spectacular will.

    Endings-
     To not ruin the pleasure of ending the game, these descriptions will be 
    very brief. Basically everyone's ending follows the same pattern: 
    4 snapshots, 1 of Geese lying on the floor with the player standing, 
    and 3 portraying the life of the player afterwards. 
     Terry and Andy does not have a snapshot of Geese lying down, but they have 
    a special ending before their snapshots where they SuperDM Geese out off the 
    tower but reaches him right in time to grab his hand, but Geese lets go and 
    plunges to his death.
     (Note: thus only Terry and Andy's ending has Geese killed.)
    
    Terry-
    After killing Geese, Terry spends the rest of his time wandering around with 
    his adopted boy form FF3, feeling empty that his arch enemy is now gone.
    
    Andy-
    Though feeling empty about losing his arch enemy, Andy sets off back to 
    Japan with Mai, and continues his practices as a ninja.
    
    Joe-
    After beating Geese to the pulp, Joe sets back to Tai where he meets with 
    his old friend Hwa Jai. After eating with little kids who adore Joe, he gets 
    up to train using dummies of Terry and Andy.
    
    Mai-
    After Beating Geese, Mai has all the time in the world to stick around with 
    Andy. And she does, even when he's learning the skills of becoming a ninja. 
    Mai even thinks about marrying him as she takes a bath. 
    
    Geese- 
    After beating the impostor that Krauser sent out, Geese lives the good life 
    as the evil ruler of SouthTown. Sounds "Untouchable"? Perhaps, but the 
    ending is a total parody of the movie. 
    
    Franco- 
    After seeing that he's totally ready for action, Franco trains out to be 
    back to the squared circle. Now's the time for the champ to take over the 
    ring again.
    
    Sokaku- 
    2 of his shots are from the airport (this guy's afraid of heights? what's 
    the deal? 2 shots!), and one is back in the entrance of his temple in Japan, 
    where his followers are seen worshipping him.
    
    Bob-
    Back in PaoPao Cafe 2, Bob celebrates his victory with all his friends in F
    FRB. Sleep tight Bob, because managing a cafe might be harder than fighting!
    
    Hon- Fu
    After Knunchucking Geese to the ground, Hon Fu finds no rest with his 
    lover because 1- on his ride back to Hong Kong, Kim (who he HATES) rode 
    right in the back of him, and once back in Hong Kong, Yamazaki (who 
    HonFu arrested in FF3) was found walking on the streets.
    
    Blue Mary-
    After getting rid of the biggest hazard in SouthTown (and also her 
    Grandpa's killer), Mary goes back to work as an agent to get rid of the 
    smaller evils. After a long days work, she and her Harley finds the way 
    to a local bar to have a blue cocktail.
    
    Yamazaki
    Beating Geese to the ground, Yamazaki finally gets his hands on the mystic 
    scrolls. He reads them, throws them on the floor and walks out of the room, 
    taunting Geese. Did he REALLY understand what was written in there? 
    
    Chonshu
    After Beating Geese, Chonshu gets his hands on the scroll, but his brother 
    quickly comes and rips them apart, only to have Chonshu surprised on the 
    floor. Ever since then, the brothers life a normal life as kids, playing 
    games, beating other kids, being beaten by other kids...

    Duck King
    To celebrate his victory, Duck invites all his friends in FFRB over to a 
    cafe (PaoPao Cafe 1?) and they all have a great time, not to mention a big 
    gulp of beer. But the chick sure is cute, eh?
    
    Kim
    Flying back to Korea on a one-stop flight from Southtown to Hong Kong, 
    Kim meets his old friend Hon Fu, who seems a bit surprised. After getting 
    back to Korea, he is greeted in the terminal by his wife and students, not 
    to mention two in particular. 
    
    Billy
    After scribbling on the fake Geese's face and escorting the real one around, 
    Billy finds time in his hands to re-kidnap his sister Lilly from Joe
