      Second Endings
      --------------
      - Get the first ending for a charcter
      - Play Story Mode with that charcter and run to the hole that leads down to
        the sewer. Don't Kill the first character you meet.
      - When you get there, injure your opponent's leg and jump into the hole
      - Beat the next five opponents honorably and by not getting a single hit
        The second ending for that character should now be played.
