This FAQ is all my own work unless otherwise noted, so don't steal it. I
don't know why you would want to steal it anyway. If you want to use
this FAQ, write me at the above email address. This FAQ assumes that you
know basic game mechanics, such as qcf and super jump. If you don't
know, read one of the more detailed FAQ's. Mail me if you have any
questions/comments/criticism/additions. Finally this is my second FAQ so
if you don't like something, write me, dammit.

What is Cyber Akuma?
Cyber Akuma is an evil product of Apocalypse. He is Akuma with enhanced
moves and stats. Also, he makes a cool clanking sound when hit.

How do i get Cyber Akuma?
First you have to beat the game without losing a round. The difficulty
must be set to 8 as well. (Some disagree about this)After you beat the
game, save the game to your memory card and start another game.
Highlight Akuma and press select five times. Then press the either x,
triangle, square, or circle. I suggest you set the rounds to one and use
The Hulk and Sakura as your team. Use the Hulk to make quick work of all
battles before Cyber Akuma and then Press PPP at the versus screen to
switch to Sakura. If you're a Hulk master, then don't even worry about
switching. Another good partner is Shuma-Gorath. His team-up super is
damaging and really looks cool.

What are His Moves?
Cyber Akuma and Akuma have similar moves. Shocking, isn't it?
Numbers are from the Training Mode, A life bar probably equals 150%

Hard Knuckle:
12% damage
Your fist flies at the opponent and will chase them a bit. Always follow
your ground fireballs with this. Does anyone know how to do this in the

Upwards Hard Knuckle:
Down +FP
12% Damage
Same as above, but flies straight up. Use this to follow your launcher
if you're lazy. Also a good anti-air move.

4 Hits/13% Damage
Your elbow hits four times from high to low, as opposed to Ryu's measly
two hits.

This move is the same as Akuma's

(Level 1 Super Meter)LP,LP,Foward,LK,HP
This is Cyber Akuma's Raging Demon. He Travels the lenght of the screen.
It leaves you with two levels of super as well, so you can follow it
with something mean. It can also be used to follow up an air combo.
24 Hits/70% damage

What are Cyber Akuma's Combos?
Some of these combos are really cheap. Do not use these on human
opponents unless you have no fear of retribution.
These are simple combos. I even got all of them to work.

What are the strategies for using Cyber-Akuma
1. Stay in the air. You have so much air superiority.
2. End all air combos with the dive kick. THis makes you land before
your opponent.
this way, you can fire off a high gou beam at his back.(or at least some
fireball+hard knuckle punishment.)
3. Try and teleport through all your opponent's supers. Your teleports
is really fast, and you can catch them from befind.
4. In fact, you should teleport towards your opponent after thworing a
fireball/Hard Knuckle and sweep them. The computer does it enough....
