       - Special Thanks

Please note that this FAQ is for the Japanese, PlayStation version of
SFZ3.  Some of it may not pertain to your version if you're playing the
PSX English version of SFZ3, or the (as of yet unreleased) Japanese
Saturn version of SFZ3.  Also, I don't own a Pocket Station, so there's
no point in asking me about it since I wouldn't know myself.

However, if you do own the PSX English version (Street Fighter Alpha 3),
and you are trying to read this FAQ, just remember the following stuff:

 - Z-ISM is now A-ISM, and anything with "Zero" in it is now "Alpha".
   All those "XZV" comments in the moves list would now be "XAV".
 - M. Bison is guy with the 'Psycho Crusher', Vega is the dude with
   the claw and mask, and Balrog is the Mike Tyson-like boxer.  Nash is
   now 'Charlie', Guile's old buddy.

There is a companion file to this FAQ, the SFA3 Arcade FAQ, which can
also be found at the sites listed above.  Since this FAQ is for an
import game, the Japanese notation and names are used, unlike the
arcade FAQ.  However, this FAQ is more complete than that one as of
v2.0 (owning the game does that to a guide you write ^_^;)  Perhaps
I'll get around to updating the arcade FAQ someday.


=========================================================================
  1.  HOW TO PLAY
=========================================================================

+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+
BASIC COMMANDS
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 This section outlines the basic controls for all characters:

 (controller directions and results)

  ub  u  uf      Jump Up-Back            Jump Up         Jump Up-Forward
    \ | /
 b -- n -- f     Walk Back / Block       Neutral         Walk Forward
    / | \
  db  d  df      Crouch / Low Block      Crouch          Offensive Crouch


 (button layout and effect)

 LP  MP  HP      Light Punch         Medium Punch        Hard Punch

 LK  MK  HK      Light Kick          Medium Kick         Hard Kick


 (FAQ abbreviations)

  qcf / qcb  -  Press (d,df,f) or (d,db,b) on the control pad.
  hcf / hcb  -  Press (b,db,d,df,f) or (f,df,d,db,b) on the control pad.
  Rotate 360 -  Rotate the control pad in a complete circle.  You can
                start and end the circle at any point (i.e. start at uf
                and end at uf, or b to b, etc.)  The shorthand motion for
                this is f,df,d,db,b,ub or the reverse.
  Rotate 720 -  Perform the 360 motion twice (two full rotations).
  PP / PPP   -  Press any two / all three Punch buttons.
  KK / KKK   -  Press any two / all three Kick buttons.
  (air)      -  The move can be performed while on the ground, or while
                in the air (during a jump or after an air recovery).
  x~x        -  All possible ranges are allowed (for example, ub through
                uf, or MK through HP).
  xzv / XZV  -  You can cancel the move into a special in the listed
                ISM (lowercase), or into a Super Combo (uppercase).
  xzv1       -  The attack is only interruptable on the first hit.
  xzvB       -  The attack is interruptable on both hits.
  ZC / AC    -  Zero Counter (in SFZ) / Alpha Counter (in SFA)
  OC / CC    -  Original Combo (in SFZ) / Custom Combo (in SFA)
  SC         -  Super Combo
                   
  BTW, a side note on the PSX controller--it sucks ;)  You can alleviate
  this somewhat by going under Key Config. and changing the command time
  to "Long" (Arcade gives you less time than normal, if you have a stick
  and want to mimic the arcade feel).  Doing so gives you more time to
  input your commands.  Also, for those of you who, like me, can't do
  the Somersault Justice-type moves for all the money in the world, try
  charging db,uf,b,ub + K, it seems to work a lot better for me, weird
  as it seems.  Remember, though, that technically, you can charge in
  any similar direction for a charge move.  For example:

   - You can do a Sonic Boom as (charge ub~db,uf~df + P).
   - You could do a Somersault Shell as (charge db~df,ub~uf + K).
   - And of course, you could do the Somersault Justice as
     (charge db,uf~df,ub~db,ub~uf + K).

  Of course, this is all theoretical (charging db,f,b,u for a Hazan
  Tenshou Kyaku would be pretty difficult) ^_^;

  I had deleted this in a previous version of the FAQ, but any move
  that can be done in air can be performed off the ground.  For
  instance, qcb,ub + K makes Dan do backwards Dankuu Kyakus (they'll
  rise up if you wait a moment before pressing K).  Charging b,uf + K
  for Chun-Li makes her do the Spinning Bird Kick up into the air.
  And so on.


+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+
BASIC ABILITIES
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 This section explains the basic moves of each character.  Remember
 that the ISM (and mode, if one is used), affects which basic abilities
 a person will be able to use.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BASIC ABILITIES LIST
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Standing Block                 Hold b when attacked
 Crouching Block                Hold db when attacked
 Mid-Air Block                  Hold b / db when attacked while in air
 GP Protection Block            Block an attack just before it hits
 Zero Counter                   Block, f + same P + K  (not in X-ISM)
 Air Recoveries                 ...(see below)
 ...Neutral Breakfall           Press PP when knocked into the air
 ...Front Breakfall             Press f + PP when knocked into the air
 ...Back Breakfall              Press b + PP when knocked into the air
 Ground Recovery                Press KK when knocked to the floor
 Roll Behind Recovery           Hold f during Ground Recovery
 Original Combo                 Press same strength P + K in V-ISM
 Taunt                          Press (b / f) + Select
 Tech. Hit (Throw Escape)       Perform a throw as you are thrown  (air)
 Counter Hit                    Hit someone while they make an attack
 Guard Crush                    Make your foe block attacks repeatedly
 Dizzy                          Hit your opponent repeatedly
 Dizzy Recovery                 Tap P / K and wiggle pad when dizzy
 Hold Damage Increase           As above, but use when you perform a hold
 Hold Damage Decrease           As above, but use when you're in a hold
 Damage Reduction               Press in any dir. + P / K when you are
 ...(cont'd)                    damaged (repeat during multi-hit moves)
                               
 * The Ground Recovery and Roll Behind Recovery can also be used after
   an air block.  And despite popular belief, you can still Tech. Hit in
   X-ISM.

 (For best results when using the Damage Reduction, Dizzy Recovery,
 Hold Damage Increase, or Hold Damage Decrease mash the buttons and
 wiggle the controller around as quickly as possible.  The faster you do
 this, the more effective these become.  However (for example), if your
 opponent was Mika and was doing her Headbutt hold while mashing the pad
 and buttons for more hits, you'd have a harder time getting out of that
 hold unless you were doing the same thing.  You'll know if your efforts
 are paying off because your character will flash white (or in the case
 of Damage Reduction, flash red).  


=========================================================================
  2.  CHARACTER MOVES LIST
=========================================================================

 Characters are listed in alphabetical order.  Each move list is divided
 into three sections: ground and air throws, special moves and command
 attacks, and then Super Combos and Level 3 Super Combos.  If I don't
 have the offical Capcom name for a move, the name is written in
 lowercase, in parenthesis.

 To the far left of the move list, you may see the letters X, Z, or V.
 These letters indicate that the move is available only when using
 X-ISM, Z-ISM, or V-ISM.

 Afterwards is information on each character's Zero Counters and a list
 of cancellable attacks (so you know what moves can be used in combos,
 etc.)

ADON

  - crouching             xzv   xzv         xzv     

 - In X-ISM, Adon's Jaguar Kicks are performed just like a normal jump
   kick.  Not only does the button used determine the strength and
   angle of the Jaguar Kick, but whether you're jumping back, forward,
   or straight up also affects the range of this move.
 - The Jaguar Crunch is an overhead attack.
 - In Z-ISM, you can only use the Jaguar Thousand or Jaguar Assassin
   if you perform the Jaguar Varied Assault at Level 3.

 Zero Counter (Z-ISM):  Standing Claw Swipe
 Zero Counter (V-ISM):  Crouching HK

 Cancellable Attacks:   LP    MP    HP    LK    MK    HK
  - close / variable    n/a   n/a*  n/a   n/a   n/a   n/a
  - standing (far)      xzv               xzv   xzv
  - crouching           xzv               xzv   xzv

 * In X-ISM, this is a close attack (it still isn't cancellable,
   though).

 - Either Backslash move can be used to avoid projectiles or physical
   attacks.
 - When playing on Balrog's stage (the one with the fence in the
   background), you can cling to the fence instead of the walls by
   performing the Kabe Hari Tsuki.  After grabbing the fence, Balrog
   will automatically position himself before jumping, at which point
   you can use either the Flying Barcelona Attack or Izuna Drop.  The
   same can be done using the Kabe Hari Tsuki Rolling SC, which you can
   follow with either of his 'Rolling...' SC attacks.
 - Balrog will lose his claw or his mask if he blocks or gets hit by  
   too many attacks.  You can re-equip either item by walking over it.
   You must have your claw in order to perform the Red Impact, otherwise
   nothing will happen when you input the command.  Otherwise, losing
   either item does not affect your offense or defense.  Interestingly
   enough, even if you have both the mask and claw equipped, Balrog's OC
   and SC shadows will still be unmasked and unarmed.
 - When you use any of Balrog's vertical charge moves, ending them with
   ub makes him go to the wall behind him, while uf makes him go to the
   wall in front of him.  Just using charge d,u makes him go to whatever
   wall is closest.

  * This move can be cancelled into specials on the first hit only
    (or either hit, for V-ISM).  However, in X- or Z-ISM, the
    second hit can also be cancelled into a Super Combo.

 - The longer you charge the Bull Horn, the more damage it does, as
   shown below:

   Time that move is charged            Result

     0 - 2 seconds                      Level 1
     3 seconds                          Level 2
     4 - 6 seconds                      Level 3
     7 - 12 seconds                     Level 4
     13+ seconds                        Final

   The times are listed in real-life seconds, not game timer ticks.  No
   matter what speed setting you use, you still have to hold down PP for
   the number of seconds listed.  While charging this move results in
   more hits (1 at Level 1, up to 5 at Final).  Obviously, this means
   more damage as well.
 - Yes, you can charge the Bull Horn before the round begins--you can
   charge it all the way up to Final if you do so during a mid-boss
   conversation.
 - When charging, you don't have to release both PP and KK; you can still
   hold down one while releasing the other.  There's no real point to
   this normally, although you can then start another Bull Horn charge by
   pressing and holding another button of the same type (Punch or Kick).
 - However, there is a trick you can do with this.  If you hold down five
   buttons (PP + KKK, or whatever you like), you can release them one at
   a time for three Bull Horn attacks (releasing the remaining two
   buttons has no effect).  You can get four Bull Horns by holding down
   all six buttons, then releasing them one at a time (again, the last
   two buttons held have no effect if released).
 - You can even press the other buttons later on (such as holding PP,
   then later adding PKK for the triple Bull Horn charge), to add more
   variety to the Bullheads (as they grow in power over time).  Just keep
   in mind that those two unused buttons have to be a Punch and a Kick
   button (i.e., if you were holding PPPKKK and released P, then P, then
   K, then P, you'd get a Bull Head on the first three releases, but not
   the last).
 - The Bull Drop is _not_ an overhead attack.
 - When you perform the Bull Revenger, using P makes Birdie hop a
   short distance, while using K makes him leap across the screen.

 - If you keep holding down the button you used to perform the Ground
   Shave Rolling, Blanka will spin in place.  Should you release the
   button, or after few seconds have passed, he'll perform the rest of
   the move.  If someone touches him after the initial jump (while he's
   moving in place), he'll attack them with the rest of the move.
 - During the Tropical Hazard, an opponent can be hit: while fruit is
   falling, when Blanka dives at his opponent, or when any fruit is
   knocked around by an attack.  If you tap P or K while Blanka is on
   the ceiling, more fruit will fall to the ground.  Even after this
   move ends, any watermelons that drop will remain on the floor, and
   either character can hit a watermelon with an attack to send it
   flying forward.  Anyone who is hit takes minor damage.  And yes, you
   can attack a watermelon more than once, for precision aiming ;)

  - crouching             xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv 

 - After you begin the Hooligan Combination, doing nothing will result
   in the Razor Edge Slicer.  If you press b / f + K when Cammy is
   higher than her opponent's midsection or if they are crouching,
   she'll perform the Fatal Leg Twister.  If you press b / f + K when
   Cammy is lower than her opponent's midsection, or if her enemy is
   in the air, she'll use the Cross Scissor Pressure.  Alternately,
   you can press K while in the air to cancel the Hooligan Combination
   and land on your feet.
 - The Cannon Revenge is a counterattack that is similar to Sodom's
   Shiraha Catch--it works against jump-in attacks and overheads.
   Cammy will use a Cannon Spike (if LK is used), a close HP, then a
   far HP (if MP is used), or a crouching HK, then a close HK  (if
   HP is used).  This move is not very easy to connect with (especially
   the HP version, which I've pulled off only twice!) so remember that
   it's not a very reliable defense.
 - When you perform the Killer Bee Assault, the direction you finish
   with (charge db,df,db,ub~uf + K), depends where Cammy leaps.  If
   you finish with ub, Cammy leaps up and backwards.  Finishing with
   u makes her go straigt up, and finishing with uf makes her jump
   up-forward before attacking.

  - armed with knife    xzv   xzv*

  * When armed with the knife, all of Cody's punches cancel except
    for HP, whether he is standing or crouching.

 - An enemy hit by the Bad Stone is momentarily stunned.  Up close,
   you can follow up with an LP or LK, but from a distance, Cody
   will finish the move while his opponent is being stunned, and
   you can then perform moves like the Ruffian Kick, Z-ISM Final
   Destruction, or Dead End Irony, and that move will combo.  Note
   that you _can_ deflect this move with a well-timed punch or kick,
   but due to the trajectory of the flying stones, it's pretty difficult.
 - The Bad Spray doesn't do much damage, but an opponent hit by it will
   end up rolling all the way across the screen.
 - When you pick up a knife using the Knife Hiroi, there's a momentary
   delay.  You can cancel the delay by pressing P though, which makes
   Cody attack with the knife (useful against opponents who try to hit
   you when you grab the knife).
 - When Cody is armed with a knife:
    * Any Punch attack does more damage and even does block damage.
      It also does more guard crush damage to a blocking opponent.
    * His Bad Stone attack is replaced by the Knife Nage, and the
      Fake Throw move is done using his knife (you can't delay this
      move when you have the knife).  He's unable to use the Stomach
      Blow, either.
    * Just like the Bad Stone, you can deflect a thrown knife with a well
      placed attack (just like with Rolento's Stinger).  On the plus side,
      the knife is thrown high enough to go over most projectiles, so you
      can hit someone with it even if a fireball is heading your way.
      Then again, you'll still have to do something about that fireball
      before it hits you ;)
    * Cody will lose his knife if he is hit, if he taunts, performs a
      throw, uses his Z-ISM Zero Counter, or uses the Final Destruction.
 - Cody's V-ISM move, the Yoke, is a sort of "auto-dodge" technique.
   Instead of blocking, Cody shifts to the side and the attack passes
   harmlessly through him.  This sort of defense doesn't work against
   all attacks, including jump-ins, extremely high or low attacks,
   and certain special moves, and it can't be used in the air.
 - During the X-ISM Final Destruction, you can move around freely and
   tap P or K when close for an auto-combo.  In the air, pressing any
   button results in a jump kick.  Crouching, Cody performs a single
   punch attack.  Just like in the original Final Fight, you can throw
   someone while auto-comboing them: in this game, just press d + P / K
   after Cody does the 3rd hit of the auto-combo (the Stomach Blow).
   This SC ends after a certain amount of time, or if you are hit.
 - The best way I've found so far to get the most hit out of the X-ISM
   Final Destruction is to get your opponent in a corner, start the SC,
   juggle them with a jumping attack, then keep tapping any button until
   Cody does the Stomach Blow.  When he does, do a crouching punch,
   stand, and repeat.  The only really tricky part is making sure you
   do a crouch punch after the Stomach Blow, since it'll come out
   after the 2nd hit sometimes, instead of coming out on the 3rd hit.
 - Another good thing about the X-ISM Final Destruction is his jumping
   Crack Kick--the range is great, and it's even possible to juggle
   your opponent with it three times across the screen, then juggle them
   in the corner with the punches.  Ow!
 - Cody's taunt makes him invincible to everything but low attacks; this
   is really useful in V-ISM since you can't block during an Original
   Combo.  On the other hand, it doesn't work in a Cody vs. Cody match.

 - Every so often, when you use the Kouryuu Ken, Dan will flash and
   will be totally invincible while flashing.  However, it's not a
   random occurance.  At the start of each round, Dan's 23rd action,
   if it is a Koryuu Ken, will flash.  Afterwards, every fifteenth
   action is a potential flashing Kouryuu Ken.  "Actions" do not
   include using the air recovery, initiating Original Combos, using
   Dan's Saikyou-ryuu Bougyo, or using his Chouhatsu Shinwa (and any
   move or taunt you do during the Chouhatsu Shinwa).  It doesn't
   include any type of movement (walking, jumping, getting hit), nor
   does it include blocking attacks or getting hit by attacks.
   Everything else is an "action", including punches or kicks that hit,
   miss, or are blocked, attacking during a V-ISM combo, using taunts
   or the Chouhatsu Densetsu, Zero Counters, Super Combos, and throws
   (missed or not).  Two-in-ones done off a single button press (like
   d + HP, qcf + release HP, which does a crouching HP into a HP Gadou
   Ken), count as two actions.  Note that multi-hit moves count as one
   action.  So, for example, I could throw 22 standing LPs with
   Dan, and if I then did a Kouryuu Ken, it would flash.  If my next
   14 moves were a combination of taunts, attacks, special moves, and
   Super Combos, then did a Kouryuu Ken for my 15th action, it would
   flash.   A big thanks to Paul Williams for this info.
 - Using the Saikyou-ryuu Bougyo will push an enemy across the screen.
   You can combine this move with a Guard Protected block if someone
   comes at you with an attack and you block it just as it reaches you.
 - Dan gains a small amount of energy from his standing, crouching,
   and rolling taunts.
 - In X-ISM, Dan's taunts gain the ability to hit an opponent for
   minor damage, depending on the situation:
     * His standing taunt hits someone in the air, and will hit if
       your opponent is attacking (it becomes a Counter Hit).  It
       will also hit exceptionally tall characters, like T. Hawk.
     * His crouching taunt will hit someone who is standing or
       crouching.  If they are jumping and are low to the ground,
       it will also hit.
     * Dan's jumping taunt seems to work best if Dan jumps up
       underneath his opponent (who must also be in the air).  Size is
       also a factor (it's easy to hit T. Hawk, but much harder to hit
       Chun-Li consistently).
     * His rolling taunts will hit someone in the air, or a standing
       opponent if you cross them up (i.e., Dan rolls underneath them,
       stands up on the other side, and taunts).
 - During the Chouhatsu Shinwa, you can move around freely.  Pressing
   any button makes Dan taunt, while pressing the Select button makes
   him do a special taunt.  You can also perform the jumping, crouching
   or rolling taunts (using db / df + a button) during this move, but
   you must do them with P or K and you won't gain energy from Dan
   taunting.  Furthermore, all of Dan's taunts can be cancelled into
   anything (i.e. you can jump during a roll taunt, cancel a standing
   taunt into a crouching one, etc.)  This move ends after a certain
   period of time or when Dan is hit.

 - Normally, Dhalsim's limbs stretch out quite far.  However, you
   can make them shorter by holding b or db when pressing Punch or
   Kick.  This even works while airborne.  In X-ISM, you can't
   control his limbs, however, they'll automatically become shorter
   when you attack from up close.
 - The Yoga Shock is an overhead attack, but only if you wait until
   Dhalsim attacks.
 - The Yoga Stream hits low and must be crouch-blocked.
 - If you play a Dhalsim vs. Dhalsim match, both wives will appear in
   the background.  Freaky!

  * This move must hit if you want to cancel it into the Zan'ei.
    However, if you want to cancel it into a special move, you must
    do so _before_ it hits.

 - Gen has two different "styles" of play he can use by pressing PPP
   or KKK.  Once you've changed into a certain style, you can only
   use the moves in that style (for example, in Sou-ryuu style, you
   could use the Shitenshuu but not the Ouga).  Gen normally starts
   in his PPP style, but if you switch to his KKK style, he'll
   remain in it for the rest of the game.  You can switch Gen's
   styles at any time, while jumping, blocking, attacking, when
   knocked down, while dizzy, and so on.
 - In X-ISM Gen cannot change styles.  He instead uses a mishmash
   of moves taken from both style instead.  He cannot chain combo
   and has his fast Ki-ryuu style jump.  Also, his normal attacks
   change depending on whether he is close or far from his opponent,
   unlike in Z-ISM or V-ISM.
 - In his Sou-ryuu style, Gen can chain together his normal attacks.
   The sequence is pretty loose--the only real restriction is that
   you can't chain a stronger attack into a weaker one (like HP into
   LK).  Otherwise, just about anything is possible.
 - During the Geki Rou, you need to tap the Kick button as your
   opponent goes higher and higher into the air if you want to get the
   full hits (you'll know if you did this correctly because he'll
   finish with a kick that knocks your foe away).
 - If hit by a Shitenshuu, a timer will appear over the head of Gen's
   opponent and count down.  When it reaches zero, Gen's foe falls to
   the ground and is dizzied.  You can increase the timer speed by
   hitting your foe with multiple Shitenshuus, but your opponent can
   stop the timer by hitting you with an attack.  Note that your
   opponent is damaged during the intitial hits, each time the counter
   goes down by one, and when it hits zero and he / she is dizzied.
   The higher level you use, the more damage the Shitenshuu does during
   the intial hits and for each timer countdown.
 - During the Ouga, you can:
      * Direct your initial leap left or right by charging d,ub / uf
        instead of charging d,u (which always takes you to the wall
        behind you).
      * Do nothing when you touch a wall for a jump kick
      * Press b when you touch a wall to abort the move
      * Press f when you touch a wall for a long kick toward your foe
      * Press u when you touch a wall to move to the ceiling
         + Do nothing when you touch the ceiling to do a head stomp
         + Press ub~uf when on the ceiling to abort the move and drop
           in either direction
         + Press b / f when on the ceiling to use a dive kick in either
           direction
 - The Kyoutetsu is an overhead attack.
 - The Onkyou hits low and must be crouch-blocked.
 - The Kirou causes huge amounts of damage if it hits someone who is in
   the middle of an attack (3.5-4.0 times more damage).  However, if you
   are hit out of it, you may take lots of damage yourself.  The move
   also has a considerable delay.
 - The Satsu Jin will knock an opponent up into the air.  You can
   follow it with a Jakouha or jump after them with the attack of
   your choice.  If you use the Uken, they can't flip out afterwards.
 - Gen's jumping Ki-ryuu MK (the Saizu), works best as a cross-up
   attack.
 - During the Kouga you can:
      * Press LK for a jump kick off the left wall,
         + Then, press MK or do nothing instead for a long kick towards
           your enemy.
         + Or, press HK instead for a higher, faster long kick.
      * Press MK for a head stomp off the ceiling,
         + Then press LK instead to dive left.
         + Or, press HK instead to dive right.
      * Press HK for a jump kick off the right wall,
         + Then, press MK or do nothing instead for a long kick towards
           your enemy.
         + Or, press LK for a higher, faster long kick.
   If you do nothing, Gen will just keep jumping off opposite walls
   and kicking.  Gen can perform one extra attack per level.
 - It's easy to accidentally tap a button too much so that if you "do
   nothing" after using LK or HK to go to a wall, you'll end up doing
   the following LK or HK move instead.  To prevent this, pressing MK
   has the same effect as "doing nothing".

 - The Tsumuji-gari and Ressen Ha are overhead attacks.
 - You can interrupt or follow the Guren Ken with another attack, as
   shown below:

    Guren Hou Shou                   f + P after 1st punch
    Guren Hou Shou                   P after 2nd punch
    Guren Mujin Kyaku                K after 1st or 2nd punch
    Guren Chouchuu                   df + P,P after 1st or 2nd punch
    Guren Yasha (Joudan)             b + P after 1st or 2nd punch
    Guren Yasha (Gedan)              b + K after 1st or 2nd punch
    Guren Ressen Ha                  u + K after 1st or 2nd punch
    Guren Kusabi                     d + K after 1st or 2nd punch

 - For example, to perform the Guren Hou Shou, you'd input (qcf + P,P,P)
   or (qcf + P, f + P).  To use the Guren Kusabi, you'd input
   (qcf + P, d + K) or (qcf + P,P, d + K).  Note that the Guren Kusabi
   hits low and must be crouch-blocked.
 - The Yasha Gaeshi moves are used to reverse attacks.  The Joudan
   version works against high attacks and jumping attacks, while the
   Gedan version works against low attacks and sweeps.  While there
   is some start-up lag to either version, you can attack someone
   while they are getting hit by the counter, with a little timing.

  - The Jump Sobat is no longer an overhead.
  - You can throw an extra Sonic Boom per level during the Sonic Break.
    So you can tap P once at Level 1, twice at Level 2, or thrice at
    Level 3 (for four Sonic Booms in all).  You don't have to throw
    them all at once, but once a Sonic Boom leaves the screen, the move
    is over, so don't delay for too long.

 Cancellable Attacks:   LP    MP    HP    LK    MK    HK
  - close / variable    xzv   XZv         xzv
  - standing (far)
  - crouching           xzv         xzv   xzv 

 - Mika's crouching HP knocks her opponent really high into the air.
   For that reason, you can follow it with just about anything, and
   in the corner, _everything_ (short of a 360 / 720 throw).  Of
   course, this only works if your opponent doesn't flip out, though.
 - Regarding the "hit area" on the Paradise Hold, it will only
   connect when Mika's legs are up in the air (this occurs shortly
   after the move begins).  Anything preceeding / following that
   won't connect.
 - The Flying Peach has lag at the beginning, while the Shooting
   Peach has lag at the end.  You'll have to mix them up in order
   to use them successfully against a smart opponent.
 - If you're caught in the Heavenly Dynamite, you can mash the buttons
   and the d-pad to try and escape.  However, if your opponent is
   rapping on his / her buttons to increase the hits, it'll also make
   it harder for you to break free.
 - Using the Sardine's Beach Special is a little confusing, but it gets
   easier with practice.  Below is a step-by-step guide for using this
   Super Combo:

      1.   Perform the Super Combo by inputting qcf,d,df + K.

      2.   Move back or forth by hold b / f.

      3.   While moving, press P for an attack (Dageki), or K for a
           head spring jump (Tobikoshi).  You can also perform the
           Tobikoshi automatically simply by running into your enemy.

      4a.  If you hit your opponent with a Dageki Attack, Mika will jump
           atop a wrestling ring post.  From there, perform one of the
           available finishers:

             - Do nothing or press P while on the ring post.
             - Press K while on the ring post.
             - Press b / f (or b / f + P) while on the ring post.
             - Press b / f + K while on the ring post.

      4b.  If you managed to connect with the Tobikoshi, tap P or K
           when Mika starts to leap, otherwise she'll go too high up.

      5.   After she lands behind her opponent, perform one of the
           available finishers:

             - Press P while behind your opponent.
             - Press K while behind your opponent.
             - Press b / f + P while behind your opponent.
             - Press b / f + K while behind your opponent.

 - Regarding the Dageki finishers, note that if your opponent is in
   the corner, Mika will always do the Moonsault Press.  Also, most
   of the Dageki moves will not combo unless you do them off the HP
   Dageki (the Mika Lariat).  This means that in some cases, a
   finisher will not hit, or your opponent may even be able to recover
   in time to avoid the attack or hit you out of it!
 - Regarding the Tobikoshi; it's possible to flip back to your
   opponent's front (so you are still facing them), and do one of the
   four finishers anyway.

  - crouching             xzv               xzv   xzv

 - Rolento's Stinger knives can be destroyed if they are hit with
   an attack (any attack will work, whether it's a standing LK or
   a fireball, etc.)  You have to time it right, though, or else
   you'll take the hit.
 - The Spike Rod can be used repeatedly to keep Rolento bouncing.
   It can be used during a jump or High Jump, but not during the
   Mekong Delta Escape.  Much like the Trick Landing, you can control
   the direction in which you bounce by holding b~db or f~df right
   after you input the command for the move (or if you use db / df,
   during it).  If you're doing this move repeatedly, then you can
   even hop back and forth ;)
 - In X-ISM, Rolento won't bounce after the Spike Rod, but he can
   use it during the Mekong Delta Escape as well as during jumps.
   Speaking of which, his normal b / f jumps become High Jumps.
 - Like Sodom's Yagura Reverse, the Fake Rod can be used very
   effectively as a reversal.  Just do it as you're getting up and
   your would-be attacker is very likely to get Counter Hit.

  - crouching             xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv

 - If you absorb a projectile using the Soul Reflect (see below), then
   the next Soul Spark you perform will do slightly higher damage if
   it hits.  This only works for one Soul Spark, though.
 - In addition to causing damage, the Soul Reflect can also be used
   against projectiles.  The LP version absorbs a projectile, giving
   Rose a small amount of SC power.  The MP version reflects a
   projectile directly forward.  And the HP version reflects a
   projectile at an up-forward angle.  If Rolento's Stinger knives are
   reflected, they go straight even if HP is used.  Rose cannot absorb
   or reflect Cody's Bad Stone and Bad Throw; instead, the rocks (or
   knife) simply hit the scarf and bounce off it and onto the floor.
   While Rose cannot use the Soul Reflect against an SC projectile,
   Dan's Shin Kuu Gadou Ken is an exception to this rule.
 - Rose can reflect any SC projectile during the Level 3 Aura Soul
   Spark.
 - During the Soul Illusion, Rose is trailed by illusions who add to
   the number of hits that any of her attacks inflict.  This move only
   ends once a certain amount of time has passed; Rose can be hit
   without having this SC end.

 - The Sakotsu Wari is an overhead attack.
 - To change the Metsu Shouryuu Ken into the Shin Shouryuu Ken, you have
   to perform it from a bit ouside of Ryu's sweep range.  If you got
   the right distance, Ryu will hit with the very tip of his elbow and
   do four hits total (and inflict a lot more damage, as well).  Be
   warned, though, it's really hard to do!

 - During Sakura's Hadou Ken, tapping P makes her delay the throwing of
   the fireball and it shortens the overall range, but it does make the
   fireball larger.  (qcf + P) gets you a small, long-range fireball;
   (qcf + P,P) makes Sakura throw a larger fireball that goes about half-
   screen, and (qcf + P,P,P) is for a large fireball that dissapates
   almost as soon as it is thrown.
 - The Flower Kick is an overhead attack.
 - After the initial hit of the Sakura Otoshi, you can add more hits
   by tapping any Punch button (this requires a bit of timing, though).
   Not only is the Sakura Otoshi invincible on the way up, but if
   you're about to land on a projectile and press P, it's possible to
   hit it and bounce off of it, even SC projectiles!  You can still
   press P (or P,P, depending) afterwards to hit your opponent.
 - The Haru Ichiban hits low and must be crouch-blocked.

 - In X-ISM, Sodom's jitte are replaced by katana, giving his attacks
   a slightly longer range.
 - When the Daikyou Burning is performed, Sodom rushes forward with his
   jitte out.  If his opponent is on the ground, he'll grab them and
   ram them into the wall (if he's closer to the wall than the distance
   he could cover during this move, he'll turn and do it instead).
   However, if his opponent is airborne, and in other circumstances,
   Sodom's foe will simply bounce off the jitte and take less damage.
 - The Shiraha Catch is a counterattack move that can be used against
   overhead attacks or against jumping attacks.  If Sodom connects,
   he'll perform a throw.  However, this can be Tech. Hit out of.
 - The Yagura Reverse is a fake Tengu Walking.  Used out of the blue,
   it doesn't have much use since it can't hit non-attacking characters
   (there are a few exceptions, such as Honda).  However, it can be
   used as a reversal, and can hit characters who are attacking you,
   although this is risky since it doesn't have much priority (though
   it counts as a Counter Hit should it connect).  It can also hit
   someone if Sodom blocked a move from up close (such as against a
   blocked Shou'ou Ken).  It's cool and insulting to counter someone
   with it, just like hitting someone with Dan's taunts ;)
 - In V-ISM, you can follow the short Shogun Throw with an attack, like
   the Jigoku Scrape, Daikyou Burning, or Meido no Miyage.  And no,
   this isn't done during a VC, it just happens to be V-ISM specific.
   Why, I'm not sure ^_^;

 - When you use the Head Press or Somersault Skull Diver, ending them
   with with ub makes Vega fly backwards.  Using uf makes him fly
   forward, and using u makes him simply fly over his opponent.

 - Either Double Lariat move can be used to avoid projectiles.  The
   KKK version has a shorter duration but also offers limited
   invincibility against low attacks.
 - The Banishing Flat can negate non-SC projectiles.  You can actually
   combo this move from a Dynamite Kick, but it's hard to do.

  3.  PSX CHARACTER MOVES LIST
=========================================================================

Although Juni, Juli, and M. Bison are available in the arcade version,
they're being listed here because there are some differences in the PSX
version regarding these three characters.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
DEE JAY
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

XZV  (shoulder throw)                b / f + PP
XZV  (double leg toss)               b / f + KK
XZV  (aerial double leg toss)        Any direction but u / d + KK  (air)

XZV  Air Slasher                     Charge b,f + P
XZV  Double Rolling Sobat            Charge b,f + K
XZV  Machine Gun Upper               Charge d,u + P, tap P rapidly
X V  Jackknife Maximum               Charge d,u + K

 Z   Climax Beat                     Charge db,df,db,uf + P
 Z   Theme of Sunrise                Charge db,df,db,uf + K

 Zero Counter (Z-ISM):    HK Jackknife Maximum
 Zero Counter (V-ISM):    Crouching MK
 V-ISM Variable Attacks:  b + LP / HP / b + K

 Cancellable Attacks:     LP    MP    HP    LK    MK    HK
  - close / variable      xzv   n/a         xzv  
  - standing (far)        xzv   xzv
  - crouching             xzv               xzv 

 - If you tap P during the Machine Gun Upper, Deejay will make two
   additional attacks before the final hit.  So instead of having
   the possibility to hit twice, it's possible to hit with the Machine
   Gun Upper 3 or 4 times.  However, these hits don't combo (only the
   first and last hit, or third and last hit), so I don't know what the
   benefit is of tapping P.  Furthermore, you have to tap P really fast.
   In my case, I can only do this on Normal speed, as you have to be
   super-human to do it on a Turbo speed setting.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
FEI LONG
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

XZV  (rapid punches)                 b / f + PP
XZV  (hop behind head throw)         b / f + KK
XZV  (aerial head throw)             Any direction but u / d + KK  (air)

  - crouching             xzv   XZ          XZ    XZ

 - The Chokka Raku Shuu is an overhead attack.
 - Like Ryu's Metsu Shouryuu Ken, the Ryuu Yassai can be upgraded
   into a stronger version.  To do it, position yourself so that
   the flame on Fei's hand touches your opponent, not his actual
   fist.  If you do it right, the hits and damage done will increase.

   summon Juni to help heal her if Juni isn't attacking.
 - Both characters are required in order to use the Psycho Rolling

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

  - standing (far)      xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv
  - crouching           xzv   xzv         xzv 

 - The Falling Arc is an overhead attack.
 - Using the Psycho Shield will push an enemy across the screen.  You
   can combine this move with a Guard Protected block if someone comes
   at you with an attack and you block it just as it reaches you.
 - After you begin the Hooligan Combination, doing nothing will result
   in the Razor Edge Slicer.  If you press b / f + K when Juli is
   higher than her opponent's midsection or if they are crouching,
   she'll perform the Fatal Leg Twister.  If you press b / f + K when
   Juli is lower than her opponent's midsection, or if her enemy is
   in the air, she'll use the Cross Scissor Pressure.  Alternately,
   you can press K while in the air to cancel the Hooligan Combination
   and land on your feet.
 - The Psycho Charge Alpha will restore lost SC / OC power.
 - Both characters are required in order to use the Psycho Rolling
   or Death Cross Dancing.

 Zero Counter (Z-ISM):    LP Buffalo Head
 Zero Counter (V-ISM):    Crouching HK
 V-ISM Variable Attacks:  b + MP / HP / MK / HK

 Cancellable Attacks:     LP    MP    HP    LK    MK    HK

  - crouching             xzv   xzv   XZv   xzv 

 - The longer you charge the Turn Punch, the more damage it does, as
   shown below:

   Time that move is charged            Result

     0 - 2 seconds                      Level 1
     3 seconds                          Level 2
     4 - 6 seconds                      Level 3
     7 - 12 seconds                     Level 4
     13 - 18 seconds                    Level 5
     19 - 24 seconds                    Level 6
     25 - 30 seconds                    Level 7
     31 - 36 seconds                    Level 8
     37 - 42 seconds                    Level 9
     43+ seconds                        Final

   The times are listed in real-life seconds, not game timer ticks.  No
   matter what speed setting you use, you still have to hold down PPP
   for the number of seconds listed.  Charging this move results in more
   damage (we're talking 60% at Final, here) and increased range on the
   Turn Punch (at Final, it goes full-screen).  If the move is blocked,
   the amount of Guard Meter damage it does is also increased.
 - You can charge the Turn Punch before the round begins--you can charge
   it even more if you do so during a mid-boss conversation.
 - During the Crazy Buffalo, you can press and hold Kick to make
   Bison perform multiple Dash Uppers, or hold Punch to switch him
   back to Dash Straights.

THUNDER HAWK
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

XZV  (choke hold)                    b / f + PP

 V-ISM Variable Attacks:  b + MP / HP / MK / HK
                         
 Cancellable Attacks:     LP    MP    HP    LK    MK    HK
  - close / variable      n/a   xzv         n/a   XZ

  - crouching             xzv               xzv   X

 - The Condor Spire is an overhead attack, as is the Canyon Splitter.
   It's cool to have an SC that is an overhead, but then again, the
   Canyon Splitter is arguably the weakest SC in the whole game.
 - T. Hawk only has two SCs--his "Double Typhoon" from SSF2T was
   renamed "Raging Typhoon" in this game.

 V-ISM Variable Attacks:  b + P / b + HK

  - standing (far)        xzv         x
  - crouching             xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv   xzv

 - The Sakotsu Wari is an overhead attack.
 - In Z-ISM, you can only use the Shun Goku Satsu at Level 3.
 - If you're scratching your head in confusion over the translation of
   Evil Ryu's name, keep in mind that while Capcom calls Ryu's fighting
   style "Shotokan Karate", his special moves are considered part of
   the "Hadou" fighting style (and according to the storyline, Goutetsu
   removed the evil, murderous techniques of Hadou fighting when he
   taught it to Gouken [the mentor of Ryu, Ken, and Dan] and Gouki,
   though Gouki re-discovered them later).  So Evil Ryu's title is really
   supposed to mean something like "Ryu, who has realized the evil,
   killing techniques of the Hadou fighting style".  Sounds a little
   awkward, huh?

 Z   Gigaton Blow                    Charge b,f,b,f + K at Level 3

 Zero Counter (Z-ISM):    LP Buffalo Head
 Zero Counter (V-ISM):    Crouching HK
 V-ISM Variable Attacks:  b + MP / HP / MK / HK

 Cancellable Attacks:     LP    MP    HP    LK    MK    HK

  - crouching             xzv   xzv     v   xzv   xzv
   
 - This version of M. Bison plays similar to the the PSX version,
   although he uses the same frames for many of his Punch and Kick
   attacks, just like the arcade version of M. Bison.  Because of this,
   he also has no variable attacks in V-ISM.  Furthermore, his Buffalo
   Head move can only be used as a counterattack.  If you've gotten the
   message in World Tour Mode saying that he's been enabled, then go
   highlight M. Bison, hold L2 and press any button to select him.
 - The longer you charge the Turn Punch, the more damage it does, as
   shown below:

   Time that move is charged            Result

     0 - 2 seconds                      Level 1
     3 seconds                          Level 2
     4 - 6 seconds                      Level 3
     7 - 12 seconds                     Level 4
     13 - 18 seconds                    Level 5
     19 - 24 seconds                    Level 6
     25 - 30 seconds                    Level 7
     31 - 36 seconds                    Level 8
     37 - 42 seconds                    Level 9
     43+ seconds                        Final

   The times are listed in real-life seconds, not game timer ticks.  No
   matter what speed setting you use, you still have to hold down PPP
   for the number of seconds listed.  Charging this move results in more
   damage (we're talking 60% at Final, here) and increased range on the
   Turn Punch (at Final, it goes full-screen).  If the move is blocked,
   the amount of Guard Meter damage it does is also increased.
 - You can charge the Turn Punch before the round begins--you can charge
   it even more if you do so during a mid-boss conversation.
 - During the Crazy Buffalo, you can press and hold Kick to make
   Bison perform multiple Dash Uppers, or hold Punch to switch him
   back to Dash Straights.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SHIN GOUKI
 True Great Devil
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 This version of Gouki plays just like the normal Gouki, but he throws
 two air fireballs instead of one and they have a much wider range.  His
 Shun Goku Satsu is also much faster and goes full-screen.  If you've
 gotten the message in World Tour Mode saying that he's been enabled,
 then go highlight Gouki, hold L2 and press any button to select him.

  4.  SECRETS AND CODES
=========================================================================

 Some information for the following two tables were taken from Fred
 Davis' SFA3 Time Release Secrets FAQ v1.0 and from various FAX files
 found at <http://www.capcom.co.jp>.
                           
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 I don't know the exact time for unlocking Shin Gouki as I used the
 "timer increase" GS code (found below), and it's not exactly a precise
 way to measure time ;)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 RELEASING THE SECRET STUFF MANUALLY
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 What's available:              How to release it:
                         
 Classical Mode                 Beat Arcade Mode on difficulty #4.
 Mazi Mode                      Beat Arcade Mode on difficulty #4.
 Saikyou Mode                   Beat Arcade Mode on difficulty #4.

 When the secret modes are released, you can access them by pressing
 Select while at the Player Select Screen.
 
 Team Battle Mode               Clear the first China course in World
                                Tour Mode.
 Survival Battle Mode           Clear Point 48106 in World Tour Mode.
 Final Battle Mode              Beat Arcade Mode on difficulty #7.
 Dramatic Battle Mode*          Beat Arcade Mode on difficulty #8.
 Dual Battle (A + A Prime)      Beat Dramatic Battle Mode once with
 Dramatic Battle (A + B)        Juni + Juli, and once with Ryu + Ken.

 When the secret battle modes are released, they will be accessable
 from the Main Menu (excluding the A + A Prime and A + B battles,
 which are found under the Dramatic Battle listing).
 
 Guile                          Clear the 'vs. Sakura' USA course in
                                World Tour Mode.  You must have cleared
                                19 courses previously, and your total
                                level must be at 27 or higher to access
                                this course.
 'Satsui no Hadou' Ryu          Clear the 'vs. Ryu' Japan course (on
                                Gouki's island) in World Tour Mode.
                                You must be at level 30 or higher to
                                access this course.

 When Guile and 'Satsui no Hadou' are released, they will appear on the
 Player Select Screen.

 Extra M. Bison                 Clear the bonus USA course in World
                                Tour Mode. (Although apparently some
                                people got it after fighting Vega the
                                second time, so....)
 Shin Gouki                     Clear the 'vs. Gouki' Japan course (on
                                Gouki's island) in World Tour Mode.
                                You must be at level 31 with at least
                                2 ISMs mastered to access this course.

 When Extra Bison and Shin Gouki are released, you can select them by
 highlighting Bison or Gouki, holding L2, and pressing any button.

 * Weirdly enough, in this mode, if you use Ryu and Ken, they have
   their old SF2-style fireballs back.  And if you use Juni and Juli,
   they have a special dual-person win pose (they both do their taunts
   at the same time--with their backs facing each other, it sort of
   looks like the wings of the Shadowlaw insignia.  Neat!)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 FIGHT SHIN GOUKI in FINAL BATTLE MODE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Any character can fight Shin Gouki in this mode, not just Evil Ryu.
 In order to do this, select the character of your choice, then hold
 L1 + L2 while you choose your ISM (or hold it right after you select
 your character, if you're using Classical Mode).  Keep holding L1 and
 L2 and Shin Gouki should be listed as your opponent on the VS screen.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 ALMOST-FULL ANIMATION
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Simply do a same character versus same character match (i.e. Cody vs.
 Cody), to get more animation than before.  The ISM or secret mode you
 use doesn't matter.  While you do get more animation (more win poses,
 taunts, walking animations, etc.), it isn't completely full.  For
 example, in a Gen vs. Gen match, Gen is still missing the post-Zan'ei
 animation where he clutches his hand.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 TURN PUNCH TIME COUNTER FOR M. BISON
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Simply pick M. Bison or Extra M. Bison, then press and hold LK + HP
 prior to a round beginning.  Now, if you charge the Turn Punch (press
 and hold PPP or KKK), a timer will appear in the corner of the screen
 beneath your name to inform you what level the Turn Punch has been
 charged to (1 is Level One, F is for Final Level).  If you hold down
 PPP and KKK, then two counters appear for each Turn Punch.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 DHALSIM'S LOVING WIFE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Even during the fiercest battles, Dhalsim always has someone rooting
 for him...his wife!  You can make Sally / Sari appear in any stage,
 not just Dhalsim's, by holding down LP + HK prior to a round beginning,
 and she will appear in the background, clapping when Dhalsim hits his
 foe and looking away when her hubby takes a hit.  While this works on
 any stage, it can't be done in Training mode or in the Dramatic Battle
 mode.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 BIO ERROR
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Pick X-ISM Sodom in Arcade Mode and you'll see that his biography and
 moves are actually Gen's.  I'm not sure why this mistake was made, but
 considering that "Sword Sodom" (as he is listed in the CD) is a
 different character than normal Sodom, perhaps the game was programmed
 to load up the wrong bio.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 GAME SHARK CODES
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 All of these were written by me, please don't repost them without
 crediting me, thanks.  Although I usually write the variable number
 as 'xx', this seems to confuse people, so I'm leaving the original
 code intact (i.e., unchanged, the Character Select code gives you
 Cody, since he's character 1B in the game's memory).

 And please don't ask about a Final Vega code, because the only ones
 I know of require a higher version Game Shark than the one I have, so
 I can't test them.  You can find those codes at the Game Shark Code
 Creator's Club, at <http://www.gsccc.com>, in the 'Import' section
 for the PlayStation.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Player 1 Infinite Life                                    80194078 0090
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 The infinite life code doesn't work for your partner if you're in
 Dramatic Battle mode.  Using 0090 instead of 0075 (how I had the code
 written originally), gives you 100% life so that you always get
 Perfects.  Very useful for earning levels in World Tour Mode.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Player 1 Infinite SC / OC Gauge                           8019416A 0090
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 This code is kind of cool, because if you're using Classical Mode,
 you can still perform your X-ISM Super Combo at will ^_^;  If you
 use it in V-ISM, it's not exactly infinite--your Original Combo ends
 when the timer runs out, but the gauge instantly refills so you can
 do another one right afterwards, if you wish.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Player 1 Cody always has Knife                            80194324 00FF
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Does just what it says.  If you play with Balrog, his mask will keep
 falling off, which isn't quite as useful as always having the knife
 but certainly is pretty fun to watch ;)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Player 1 Character Select                                 8019414E 001B
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Rather than list all the possibilities, I'll just list the fun ones.
 Change 001B for the character of your choice:

   0004  Chun-Li         (in her Zero series costume)
   0006  Sodom           (with his Zero series jitte)
   0011  Gen             (in permanent Sou-ryuu mode)
   0012  Chun-Li         (in her X-ISM cheongsam)
   0013  Gen             (in permanent Ki-ryuu mode)
   0014  Sodom           (with X-ISM katana)
   0015  Extra M. Bison  (the arcade-only version of M. Bison)
   0017  Evil Ryu        (aka 'Satsui no Hadou' Ryu)
   0020  Guile
   0024  Shin Gouki

 Trying to do certain X-ISM moves with Chun-Li in her Alpha costume
 will cause the game to crash.  You'll get lots of glitches using
 the other characters in the 'wrong' ISM, too (like Sodom w/ katana
 in Z-ISM), though they're mostly just graphical glitches and nothing
 too serious.

 If you use this code to make Guile the first player, then use the
 second player controller to play Dramatic Battle (Ryu and Ken),
 you may hear a Guile quote that sounds like "Oh my, you're alive!"
 This doesn't seem to appear anywhere in the game, not even in the
 Guile vs. Charlie pre-fight sequence.  I assume it's an unused voice
 sample or something, but in any case, it's in there.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Player 1 can use Final Vega                             801941A6 - 0F00
 Player 2 can use Final Vega                             801945EE - 0F00
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 I'd like to thank Clarence for telling me about this code.  Simply
 pick Vega and choose Z-ISM, and you get Final Vega, complete with his
 new intro, new HP attacks, and the super Psycho Crusher.  You have to
 put in both codes if you want to use Final Vega in Dramatic Battle
 mode, and no, you can't save him into memory if you use him in World
 Tour Mode (although it's a great way to build up a normal Vega in that
 mode).


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Player 1 Mode Select                                      801941AE 0000
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 You can replace '0000' with:  0000  Normal
                               0100  Com (the CPU plays for you)
                               0200  Mazi
                               0300  Saikyou
                               0400  Classical

 This code is really only useful for those people who haven't earned
 the hidden modes yet.  It won't affect the first player if it's the
 CPU (i.e., you couldn't always fight Classical opponents in Arcade
 Mode), but if you set it to 'Com' you can have the CPU control the
 first player in any mode where you can set the mode normally (i.e.
 choose Mazi, Saikyou, or Classical).  If you pick Arcade Mode, after
 the CPU controlled player wins for you, you're asked to continue, just
 as if you had lost.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Training Mode Damage Select                               8019475C 0000
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 You can change the last three digits in '000' to whatever you want
 although the damage doesn't go any higher than 255 points (00FF).
 I basically made this code so that I could reset the damage counter
 when testing out moves and combos instead of having to exit all the
 way out and re-select my characters.  Just remember that if you
 leave the code on, it will keep displaying '00' for the damage until
 you flick the switch off.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Battle Mode Select                                        80193F9A 0000
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 You can replace '0000' with:  0006  Team Battle
                               0007  Surivival Mode
                               0008  Dramatic Battle
                               0009  Final Battle

 Obviously setting the code to another number enables an already-
 usable mode (i.e.  '0003' lets you use World Tour Mode).  This code
 is just for those who haven't accessed the hidden battle modes yet
 and want to try them.  However, when you're done playing, you must
 reset your game, as if you exit out (you can do this in Survival
 Mode) back to the main menu screen, the game will hang.

                                      
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 All ISM Plus powers for 1P                                80194304 FFFF
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 I'd like to thank Kwan for this great code.  You don't even need to
 make a World Tour character, you can just select any character in any
 mode and they'll have all 13 ISM Plus powers activated (i.e. chain
 combos, Custom Combos in X-ISM or V-ISM, a refilling SC / OC gauge,
 etc.)  The only thing you don't get are the Power Balance units (for
 offense and defense).


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Infinite ISM Plus Units                                   801CC64E 0000
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 A really fun code, even if it doesn't work quite as well as I wanted it
 to.  Anyway, here's how it works:

  - Go into Entry Mode or World Tour mode and choose Setup so that you
    can select the ISM Plus powers you want to use.
  - When in the ISM Plus menu, turn on the code.  You'll notice that
    with the code activated, you can't select any ISMs aside from those
    on the uppermost row.  However, that's just a side effect--what
    this code also does is that it empties the little 3 unit box even
    if you've selected an ISM Plus.
  - So, what you can do is turn the code on, then off, select the ISM
    Plus powers that you want, and if you want more than the maximum
    limit, just turn the code on again, then off, so that the unit
    meter empties once again.  You can have all of the abilites turned
    on at once, too (for example, I have an X-ISM Dan with air blocking,
    no Guard Power Gauge, Zero Combos, Zero Cancels, Super Zero Cancels,
    Gauge Plus, and Original Combos all activated.)
  - If you do this in Entry Mode, either character can select your
    'enhanced' character for some really fun fights.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Game Timer Increase                                       8017DD0E 3B3B
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 This code affects the timer that appears in the Options Menu.  For
 every minute the code is left on, the timer increases by 60 hours.
 Leave it on long enough and everything that is normally hidden becomes
 available (excluding the A + A prime and A + B Dramatic Battles, which
 you have to get by beating Dramatic Battle with Ryu + Ken and Juni +
 Juli).

 Note that all of the hidden stuff appears as you play, so if you hang
 out in the Main Menu for a little while the hidden battle modes will
 appear, etc.  This doesn't apply to 'Satsui no Hadou' Ryu or Guile,
 though--if you're waiting around in the Player Select Screen, they
 won't appear even if they're already been enabled; you have to exit
 out and go back in again.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Give Dan Long Range Fireballs                             801C3D08 0000
                                                           D01C3D08 FFFF
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Big props go to Senio Rotondi (akumas@tin.it) for this cool code.
 Now, Dan's Gadou Ken and Shin Kuu Gadou Ken will always go full-screen!
 The only tradeoff, though, is that since a fireball's damage decreases
 the further it travels, these moves do pitiful damage from afar (even
 an HP Gadou Ken does only 1 point of damage from one end of the
 screen)!  A really fun code, nonetheless.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Play as Air Jordan (Player 1)                             80194074 D800
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Well, try it and you'll see what I mean :)  This was a botched attempt
 at a "any move in mid-air" code but it's pretty fun so I kept it.
 Basically, jumping or performing any move that takes you into the air
 takes you up really high.  It also affects some other moves, such as
 rolling ones (like Rolento's Mekong Delta Attack or Balrog's Rolling
 Crystal Flash).  Not exactly the greatest code, but it's worth a laugh
 or two and makes the game pretty challenging (or easy, depending on how
 you look at it).


=========================================================================
  5.  MENU EXPLANATIONS 
=========================================================================
       
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 LOADING AND SAVING DATA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 What's given here are not exact translations, but it's not like what
 I wrote is that different. ;)  To get to these menus, go into the
 OPTION MENU and choose MEMORY CARD.  From there, you have the following
 options:

 SLOT SELECT
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Which slot do you want to read?
                top:  Slot 1            bottom:  Slot 2


 OPTION DATA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Slot 1  (or Slot 2)
                top:  Load              bottom:  Save

        If you choose Load, read DATA LOAD.  If you choose Save,
        go to DATA SAVE.


 DATA LOAD
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Do you want to load the data?
                top:  Yes               bottom:  No
              

 DATA SAVE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
       Saving costs 1 block.  Do you want to save?
                top:  Yes               bottom:  No

       If you choose Yes, but have previous data:


 DATA SAVE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Do you want to overwrite the existing data?
                top:  Yes               bottom:  No

 Remember that you use the Circle button to accept an option and can
 press X at any time (unless it's checking the data and reads DATA
 CHECK), to cancel an option.  The game will normally autoload your
 data, but only if you have the Memory Card in the first slot.  If you
 have Auto Save on, it will automatically save when changes are made to
 the data without asking you (it's automatic, after all!) :)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 WORLD TOUR MODE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 In this mode, you get to pick a character and go around the world
 fighting different people.  Your score is converted into experience
 points that you can use to augment your abilities.  This section
 offers a brief explanation of how to use this mode:

 LOAD GAME
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 If you already have a saved character file, you can pick this option
 to reload it.

 NEW GAME
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 If you want to start World Tour with a new character, choose this
 option.  If you pick this, you're given several options:

   top:     Begin  (pick this to start with a new character)
   middle:  Pocket Zero  (pick this to play Pocket Station SFZ3)
   bottom:  Exit  (returns you to the Option menu).
 
 The Pocket Station is currently only available in Japan; I have no
 idea if it will be released in the US.  I don't own a Pocket Station so
 I can't comment on this mode, although there are quite a few pages
 devoted to it in the instruction manual (I doubt I could do a very good
 translation on it, though).

 Anyway, if you choose to begin a new game, you'll be taken to the
 Character Select screen.  Pick your character and ISM (don't fret if
 you don't like the ISM you chose, you can change it at anytime).
                          

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 WORLD MAP AND SETUP MENU
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Okay!  Here you are at the World Map.  Displayed at the top of the
 screen are your character, his / her master level, and current ISM
 level.  Listed at the bottom of the screen are your current location,
 who can fight here, and what type of battle it is.

 In the World Map, you can press Left or Right to choose a new area
 to fight at, if one is available.  Pressing the Circle button will
 send you to that area, or pressing Start brings up the World Tour
 Menu, explained below:

 BATTLE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Choosing this option is the same as pressing Circle while in the World
 Map; it sends you to the listed location to fight.


 SET UP
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 This option takes you to the Setup Menu.  You'll be in here a lot, so
 familiarize yourself with it.  Shown on the right side are the various
 menus:

  - Listed at the top of the screen is the current fight you'll be
    partaking in if you go to this area.
 
  - Beneath that is the ISM SELECT.  You can choose what ISM you want
    to use from here, just like choosing your ISM in any other mode.

  - After that is the SPEED SELECT.  If you preset a speed from the
    Options menu, you can't change the speed, otherwise, you can set
    it to whatever you want.

  - Next up is the ISM PLUS menu.  As you play World Tour mode, you
    will earn ISM PLUS abilities.  See the "ISM Plus Information"
    section for more details.

  - At the bottom of the screen is the POWER BALANCE menu.  As you
    play World Tour mode, you will earn balance points.  You can
    press Left or Right to choose how you wish to distribute these
    points; give more to POW by pressing Left and your attack power
    goes up, but you'll take more damage.  Likewise, press Right to
    increase your DEF; this makes you take less damage from attacks,
    but your own attacks will do less damage.  Leave an equal amount
    of red POW and blue DEF points on either side to play with a
    balanced character.

 On the left side of the screen is your character's status:

  - MAX COMBO shows the highest-hitting combo that you've performed
    so far.  As far as I can tell, this doesn't have any effect on
    the game.

  - EXP and NEXT apply to your master level.  EXP shows how many
    experience points you've gathered so far, and NEXT shows how many
    more you need to raise a level.  Your level maxes out at 32, at
    which point gaining extra EXP won't do anything.

  - Below that are the EXP and NEXT scores for each of your ISMs.
    Each ISM maxes out at Level 6.
  

 SAVE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 If you want to save your data, choose this option.  This works just
 like the DATA SAVE procedure in the 'Loading and Saving Data' section
 listed previously.  However, after picking the slot you want to save
 in, you have to pick the character file you want to save in.  You can
 have seven saved character files at any given time, and if you're
 saving over an already taken file, you'll be told that there's old
 data and be asked if you want to overwrite it.


 EXIT
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 This returns you to the World Map screen.


 MODE MENU
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 This exits you all the way back out into the main menu.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 WORLD TOUR BATTLES
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Obviously, most of your time in World Tour is spent fighting.  Your
 goal is to clear each location while earning as much EXP as possible;
 the best way to do this is to finish rounds quickly and with a Perfect,
 if at all possible, because you get 30000 points from a Perfect
 victory!  Finishing with Super Combos or Custom Combos is also a good
 way to rack up extra points.

 Combo Attack:          Only hurt by combos over 3 hits; block damage
                        does not apply.
 Time Attack:           Only have 30 seconds to win the match, but you
                        can still win by having more life at time out.
 Super Combo:           Only hurt by Super Combo damage.
 Original Combo:        Only hurt when you're in an Original Combo.
 Guard Crush Mission:   Only hurt if attacked while in Guard Crush
                        animation.
 Infinite SC gauge:     Your opponent always has a Level 3 SC gauge
                        no matter how many times they use an SC.
 Team Battle:           Your life is restored in the next battle, but
                        your SC / OC gauge is not.

 (I'm listing the ISM of your opponent because sometimes it seems as
 if a particular character always uses a certain ISM.  But I guess
 it's actually random, excluding those who use Shadowlaw-ISM).

 Stuff you can earn:

 ZERO CANCEL  (costs 2 squares)
  - You can cancel any normal move into a special move.

 SUPER ZERO CANCEL  (costs 2 squares)
  - You can cancel special moves into Super Combos (just like in SF3).

 SUPER GUARD  (costs 2 squares)
  - You don't take block damage from special moves.

 INFINITE GUARD  (costs 1 square)
  - Your Guard Power Gauge never decreases.

 AUTO GUARD  (costs 1 square)
  - When not attacking, you'll automatically block an incoming attack.

 AIR GUARD  (costs 1 square)
  - You can block in air.  Only useful in X-ISM.

 GUARD POWER PLUS  (costs 1 square)
  - You lose less guard power when blocking.
     
 ZERO COUNTER PLUS  (costs 1 square)
  - You do lots of damage when you Zero Counter an attack.

 GAUGE PLUS  (costs 1 square)
  - Your SC / OC gauge slowly regenerates.  Very useful in all
    modes, particularly X-ISM.

 DAMAGE PLUS  (costs 2 squares)
  - If your enemy blocks your special move, they take added block
    damage.

 HARD BODY  (costs 1 square)
  - You cannot be dizzied (but can still be Guard Crushed).

 ORIGINAL COMBO  (costs 2 squares)
  - You can use Original Combos along with any ISM.  This has no
    effect in V-ISM; in Z-ISM, think of it like the dual SC / CC
    meter of SFA2 (you could use the power for an Original Combo
    or a Super Combo).  The same goes for X-ISM.
  
 ZERO COMBO  (costs 2 squares)
  - You can cancel any normal move into any other normal move.  Not
    quite like chain combos since you can cancel a move into itself
    and do other interesting stuff, since there's no rule to how you
    must combo together attacks.
                   
 At several points during World Tour, the game appraises your score
 and then ends the game at a certain point (after the Final Vega battle
 at Point 48106 is one of them).  This means that you didn't raise
 enough overall levels.  The better you do, the more fights you can
 get through, and of course, the more countries you clear and levels
 you raise, the more characters that are unlocked.  If you manage to
 get the best score (Level 32 with all ISMs mastered), you can earn
 all the characters, a few modes, and fight Shin Gouki (the last boss)
 in one fell swoop.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 ENTRY MODE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Entry Mode allows you to load up a World Tour character, complete
 with all his / her special abilities, and use them in any other mode.
 The available options are:

 LOAD
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 You have to choose this first, to specify what Memory Card you want to
 load from.  Pick the appropriate slot and press the Circle button, and
 the World Tour data will be loaded up.  After this, you'll want to go
 to ENTRY to stick the appropriate character in the Entry roster.


 SAVE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 This works just like the DATA SAVE procedure in the 'Loading and
 Saving Data' section listed previously.  What this does is save your
 data if you've changed your character's abilities (like changing a
 V-ISM Cody into X-ISM or removing / adding some of his ISM Plus
 abilities).


 SETUP
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 After selecting this, choose the character you want to mess around
 with.  You'll be taken into the World Tour setup menu, just set it
 up however you want, then exit.


 ENTRY
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 If you want to delete or add a character to the Entry roster (you can
 have six characters usable at a time), choose this option.  Then
 choose the character you to add, and pick an empty slot and press
 the Circle button.  If you want to delete that character, or any
 others, just highlight the one you want to remove and press the X
 button.

+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+
ISM INFORMATION
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 One of SFZ3's new features is the ISM select.  After you pick your
 character, you pick a particular ISM to use.  Each ISM has different
 properties and changes the way your character plays, from giving them
 new moves and abilities to disabling Zero Counters and air-blocking.
 Each ISM has its' own strengths and weakness; it's up to you to discover
 which one works best with your favorite characters.  An explanation of
 each ISM is listed below:

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 X-ISM  (Simple Mode)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The name "X-ISM" comes from SSFIIX, the Japanese name of our SSF2T
  game.

  MODE BENEFITS
   Like in other modes, your Guard Power Gauge length depends on the
   character.  However, all GPGs are longer in X-ISM than in other
   modes, making it harder for an X-ISM character to get Guard Crushed.
   Also, your attacks (punches, kicks, special moves, etc.) do more
   damage in this mode, excluding SCs, which do the same damage as in
   Z-ISM (why, I have absolutely no idea).

  MODE LOSSES
   You cannot air block, use the ground recovery roll, or Zero Counter.
   You cannot taunt either (excluding Dan, as usual).  X-ISM characters
   have only one, predetermined Super Combo.  They also take slightly
   more damage from attacks (blocked or not) than in other ISMs.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Z-ISM  (Standard Mode)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The name "Z-ISM" comes from the title of the SFZ series (the SFA
  series in the States).

  MODE BENEFITS
   Z-ISM characters have just about everything available to them that
   other modes lack: air blocking, both ground and air recoveries,
   Zero Counters (these cost 1 level of SC power and 1 notch of your
   Guard Power Gauge), and taunting (once per round only, excluding
   Dan).  Plus, their SC gauge charges up at a decent pace, compared
   to X-ISM's slow-filling Super Combo gauge.  They also have access
   to all of their Super Combos (excluding Dhalsim).

  MODE LOSSES
   Characters in this mode do an average amount of damage per hit, but
   this is less than in X-ISM.  Each character's Guard Power Gauge
   varies depending on who you're using, which means that it's easy
   for certain characters to get Guard Crushed.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 V-ISM  (Variation Mode)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

  The name "V-ISM" comes from the Original / Variable combos used in
  this ISM.

  MODE BENEFITS
   Like Z-ISM characters, they have full access to special abilities
   such as air blocking, ground and air recoveries, Zero Counters
   (these cost 50% of a full OC gauge and drain 1 notch from your
   Guard Power Gauge), and taunting (again, once per round only,
   excluding Dan).  Also, you can determine which range of attacks
   you'll use (far or close), by leaving the controller neutral or
   holding it back when you press a Punch or Kick button (this doesn't
   apply to all characters).  The OC gauge also charges very quickly
   in this mode, giving you more frequent access to Original Combos.
   Most obvious is that you can use Original Combos, although this
   works in place of Super Combos.

  MODE LOSSES
   All characters in this mode do less damage per hit than in any other
   mode, making this the worst mode damage-wise.  Plus, it costs half
   an OC gauge to use an Zero Counter, which is still worse than
   Z-ISM's requirements, even though the OC gauge fills quickly.


+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+
MODE INFORMATION
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 There are three hidden modes in this game that can be used along with
 ISMs to change the way your character plays.  To unlock the modes, refer
 to the "Secrets and Codes" section.  Information on the modes is found
 below:

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 SAIKYOU MODE
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 This mode is named after Dan Hibiki's style of fighting, 'Saikyou' (in
 English, "the strongest").  This is an in-joke, of course, since Dan is
 a pathetic character and Saikyou Mode actually makes a character
 significantly weaker than he or she would normally be.  In this mode,
 you have a very short Guard Power Gauge, making it easy for you to get
 Guard Crushed.  What's worse, you cannot interrupt normal moves with
 special moves or Super Combos (hence, no two-in-ones).  It's also
 twice as easy to get dizzed in this mode, and the damage you inflict
 is slightly less than it would be if you just picked an ISM and no
 special mode.

 Unlike the arcade version, the PSX version of Saikyou Mode has been
 fixed and there are no glitches, such as throws that do 99% damage,
 etc.  And just for the record, I think Dan rocks ;)


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 MAZI MODE
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Using Mazi Mode (in English, "serious") requires you to play carefully,
 as one wrong move could cost you the battle.  In this mode, the damage
 you inflict is greater than in Saikyou Mode.  However, you take around
 2 times as much damage from your opponent.  I think you take the most
 damage if you get hit while your lifebar is decreasing.  Furthermore,
 you only need to lose one round and you will lose the entire match,
 although you must win two rounds to progress (as you normally would).


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 CLASSICAL MODE
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The name of this mode refers back to the original SF2 games, or in
 other words, SF2-style gameplay without all the additions and features
 added in over the years.  Note that you're forced into using X-ISM if
 you use Classical Mode.  In this mode, there is:

     - No air blocking.                 - No SC or OC gauge!
     - No air recovery.                 - No Zero Counters.
     - No ground recovery.              - No Guard Power Gauge.
     - No taunts (except for Dan).

 In terms of character moves, it's just like X-ISM (Sodom has his
 katana, Vega has the Psycho Crusher as a normal move, etc.)  One
 important change is that your character cannot be juggled much (he
 or she falls to the floor), and no Guard Power Gauge means that
 you don't have to worry about getting Guard Crushed, which is also
 quite an asset.  Since this mode is essentially X-ISM, the damage
 you inflict is the same as in X-ISM as well.


+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+
ABILITY INFORMATION
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 This section explains abilities and features available to each
 character.  Some of them may not be available to a character depending
 on who he / she is and what ISMs they're using.  More information on
 the ISMs can be found in the next section.

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  BLOCK                        (air blocking is not available in X-ISM)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   Hold b to block most standing attacks, jumping attacks, and
   overheads.  Hold db to block most standing and low attacks.  Note
   that you won't block unless the attack your opponent is using is
   relatively close to you.  You can also block in air by performing
   the block command while jumping or after an air recovery.

  NOTES:
   When you block, you take no damage from normal moves, and reduced
   damage from special moves and Super Combos.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  GROUND RECOVERY                      (this is not available in X-ISM)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   When you're knocked down, or if you've just air-blocked an attack,
   press any two Kick buttons as you're falling.  To do the roll behind
   Ground Recovery, do f + KK instead.  Then keep holding f and you'll
   roll all the way behind your opponent, even if they're in the corner.

  NOTES:
   By using the ground recovery, you can pass through your opponent or
   simply move closer towards them.  It's useful for escaping from
   corners and so that your foe can't attack you as you get up.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  AIR RECOVERY
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   When you're knocked up into the air, press any two Punch buttons to
   flip upright and land a short distance away.  After some
   experimentation, I've noticed that b + PP makes you move further
   back upon flipping, while f + PP makes you stay in your same
   tragectory when you flip.  I've noticed that the PP flip cannot be
   done normally (?) unless you get hit while in the air.  I'm really
   not sure about this, but that's what my efforts resulted in, so
   perhaps someone can clear me up, here.

  NOTES:
   Normally, you can be juggled by another of your enemy's attacks
   when you're knocked into the air.  However, once you've flipped, you
   can air block (in certain modes), or perform an attack to prevent
   this from happening.  It's also a useful way to land on your feet
   rather than your back.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  TAUNT                                (this is not available in X-ISM)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   Press Select while standing or crouching.  Birdie, Cody*, Gouki,
   Shin Gouki, Ken, Nash, Ryu, and Satsui no Hadou Ryu all have a
   second taunt which is done by pressing f + Select.  Birdie has a
   third taunt which is done by pressing b + Select.

  NOTES:
   Realistically, taunts have no practical use since they leave you
   open to attack and can't be cancelled.  Rose has a random,
   alternate saying for her taunt, and the following characters have
   damaging taunts: Birdie, Chun-Li, Dan (only in X-ISM), Gouki, Shin
   Gouki, Rolento, Sakura, and Sodom.  These cause minor damage, but
   they can kill someone.  Dan and Dhalsim have an air taunt which can
   be done by pressing Select while in the air.  Dan can also taunt
   when he's crouching.  You can taunt once per round (Dan can taunt
   infinitely in each round).  You can also cancel a normal move into
   your taunt animation, if that move is normally cancelable.  Dan
   earns small amounts of SC energy from his crouching and standing
   taunts, as well.

   *  Only if you're playing Cody vs. Cody.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  THROW 
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   Press b / f + any two Punch buttons (some characters can also use
   any two Kick buttons).  This can be done in air.  Some characters
   have 'holding' ground throws, in which you can rap on the buttons
   to increase the number of times your enemy is squeezed / choked /
   bitten / etc.  You'll know if tapping the buttons is paying off
   as your character will shine white when an extra hit has been
   added.

  NOTES:
   If you're not close enough to your opponent, you'll go into a
   "missed throw" animation that leaves you vulnerable to attacks.
   Your opponent can reduce the damage he or she takes from a throw by
   doing a Tech. Hit (f + PP / KK when thrown), which also makes them
   land on their feet.  If you miss a throw, you'll still earn SC
   power, or if you're using V-ISM, you'll earn quite a bit of OC
   power (since your gauge charges the fastest in V-ISM).


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  REVERSAL-ONLY MOVES
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
                     
  Several characters have reversal-only moves.  However, these moves
  can be used in many different situations, not just when you're
  getting up after being knocked down:

   Bison, Extra Bison, and Chun-Li can use their reversal-only moves
   (the Buffalo Head and X-ISM Tenshou Kyaku) in the following
   situations:

    - When knocked down.
    - When coming out of hitstun (after being damaged).
    - When coming out of blockstun (after blocking an attack).

   Cody and Dhalsim can use their reversal-only moves (the Bad Spray
   and Yoga Escape) under the following conditions:

    - When knocked back into the air (i.e. getting hit by Sakura's
      HK Shunpuu Kyaku would work, but getting sweeped by her d + HK
      kick would not).  The general rule with this is that if you
      can air recover (PP flip) out of a move, you can probably use
      the Bad Spray or Yoga Escape, instead.
    - After an air block (it doesn't matter how close or far you are
      from the floor, you'll only do it once you hit the ground).

   Sodom (the King of Reversals), can use his b,db,d + K Tengu Walking
   and Kouten Okiagari under these conditions:

    - When knocked down.
    - When coming out of hitstun (after being damaged).
    - When coming out of blockstun (after blocking an attack).
    - When knocked back into the air (i.e. getting hit by Sakura's
      HK Shunpuu Kyaku).  Again, if you can air recover (PP flip)
      out of a move, you can probably use the Tengu Walking instead.
    - After an air block (it doesn't matter how close or far you are
      from the floor, you'll only do it once you hit the ground).

   He can use his qcf + K Tengu Walking while getting up off the floor
   (like a normal reversal).


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  ZERO COUNTER                        (this is not available in X-ISM)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   While you're blocking an attack on the ground, press f + the same
   Punch and Kick buttons.  You need to have at least 1 level of your
   SC gauge filled (in Z-ISM), or 50% or higher of your OC gauge filled
   (in V-ISM), in order to do this.  You also need at least one spare
   notch in your Guard Power Gauge.  When you use a ZC, the animation
   will pause briefly and you'll stop blocking and perform a preset
   attack.  The attack you use changes depending on what "-ISM" you're
   using.

  NOTES:
   ZCs are handy if your opponent is aggressive or is trying to kill
   you via block damage and you want to get away from them.  ZCs do
   little damage but can kill someone.  However, because they shorten
   the length of your GPG, they're best saved for do-or-die situations,
   as a small Guard Power gauge is not a good thing to have.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  SUPER COMBO                          (this is not available in V-ISM)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   The command for a SC changes depending on the character.  Usually
   it's a double motion (like qcf,qcf), plus a Punch or Kick button.
   The button used has no purpose in X-ISM; in Z-ISM, it affects the
   level of power used (LP / LK for Level 1, MP / MK for Level 2, HP
   / HK for Level 3).  Some Z-ISM characters have SCs that can only be
   used at Level 3--in that case, the button used is unimportant.  If
   you have one level of power and use a Medium or Hard attack, you'll
   still do a Level 1 SC; the same applies to using HP or HK if you
   have only 2 levels.

  NOTES:
   Super Combos share many traits: they are generally faster and have
   more priority than normal moves; they can juggle an opponent, and
   they hit multiple times and usually do lots of damage.  In Z-ISM,
   these traits improve depending on the level of SC energy expended
   (so a Level 3 SC costs more but does more damage, etc. than a Level
   1 SC).  X-ISM SCs can be considered as "Level 4" SCs; they are
   generally better than even a Level 3 SC but take a longer amount of
   time to charge up.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  ORIGINAL COMBO                      (this is only available in V-ISM)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   Press the same strength Punch + Kick buttons together.  You need to
   have at least 50% of your OC energy built up in order to use this.
   When you activate an OC, you are trailed by shadows that mimic your
   every action, but only the last one (it's colored differently) can
   actually hit an opponent.  What strength P + K you use determines
   the amount of space between each shadow; use LP + LK for them to be
   close together, MP + MK to space them further apart, and HP + HK
   for a wide gap between each shadow.  Basically, the closer your
   last shadow is to you, the sooner it attacks after you perform an
   attack.

  NOTES:
   OCs are very different from the way they were in SFA2.  You can't
   block during an OC, and you can taunt infinitely and use charge
   moves without charging (i.e. simply tap b,f + P for Birdie's
   Bullhead).  You can still juggle an opponent easily with your
   attacks, and can cancel normal attacks (not special moves, although
   there's still no delay time after performing one so you can go into
   another move faster than you could normally).  Unlike a SFA2 CC,
   you can walk wherever you want to or jump without always moving
   forward.  Also, you can throw / air throw during a OC as well.  If
   you're hit while your OC is activated, it ends, and you lose all
   remaining OC power above 50%  (more if you were closer to reaching
   50%).  If you started with 50%, then you lose it all if you're hit.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  GUARD POWER GAUGE
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  NOTES:
   When you block or air block an attack, this gauge decreases
   slightly.  If you keep blocking attacks, it will keep decreasing
   until it empties.  If this happens, your character gets Guard
   Crushed and will become dizzy (and open to an attack) for a moment
   before it recharges.  However, when it recharges, it's overall
   length is reduced by a notch, making it easier for you to be Guard
   Crushed.  When not blocking, the GPG refills slowly, but only to the
   current length of the GPG and not any further if you've lost a notch
   or more.  Another way to lose GPG notches is to use a Zero Counter.
   If your opponent can block in the air, you can Guard Crush them in
   the air, although they'll fall to the ground after getting GC'd.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  COUNTER HIT
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   Hit your opponent with an attack while they're in the midst of
   performing their own attack.

  NOTES:
   When you perform a Counter Hit, the hit sound is much louder and the
   action pauses for a brief moment.  A move that becomes a Counter Hit
   does more damage than it normally would.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  DAMAGE REDUCTION
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   When getting hit by an attack, press in any direction plus any
   button.  Sometimes it's possible to do this with just a controller
   press, I don't know why.

  NOTES:
   Doing this slightly reduces the amount of damage you take from an
   attack.  You'll know if it worked because you'll flash red while in
   your 'damaged' pose.  This can be done repeatedly against multi-hit
   attacks in order to conserve more life.

   Furthermore, if you're in the midst of an attack and are hit, you
   can perform the Damage Reduction and your character will continue
   the attack, instead of going into hitstun.  Think of it like the
   Super Armor found in the VS. games.  Thanks to gdawson@angelfire
   for this bit of info.

   LBDanGC@aol.com also suggests that doing the Damage Reduction
   command can result in your attacker taking added damage (sort of
   like a Counter Hit).  I haven't been able to confirm this, but
   it's entirely possible.


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  GUARD CRUSH PROTECTION
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  COMMAND:
   Try to block an attack as it comes out instead of blocking it in
   advance (like parrying in reverse).  This works against high and
   low attacks, and can be done in the air as well, if your character
   can air block.

  NOTES:
   Doing this reduces the amount of Guard Power you lose from your
   Guard Power Gauge.  Your character will flash blue if you've done
   this properly.

CHARTS A PLENTY
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 This section contains a bunch of short charts showing the abilities
 of different characters.

 To see which of the abilities mentioned in the 'Basic Abilities List'
 is available in each ISM, refer to the chart below.  Detailed
 information on the basic abilites can be found in the 'Miscellaneous'
 section.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 ABILITIES              X-ISM           Z-ISM           V-ISM
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Air Blocking           No              Yes             Yes
 Air Recovery           Yes             Yes             Yes
 Ground Recovery        No              Yes             Yes
 Taunts                 Only Dan        Yes             Yes
 Guard Power Rating     High            Varies          Varies
 SC/OC Gauge Speed      Slow            Normal          Fast
 Levels Available       1               3               2  (50% / 100%)
 Zero Counter Cost      n/a             1 SC + 1 GP     50% OC + 1 GP
 Damage Rating          x1.2*           x1.0            x0.8
 Defense Rating         x0.8            x1.0            x1.0

  * This is excluding Super Combos.  An X-ISM Super Combo does the same
    damage as a Level 3 Z-ISM Super Combo (if they are the same SC; so
    obviously Dhalsim and Cody are excluded).  However, using a hidden
    Mode (see below) will affect all damage inflicted, including SC
    damage).  Why SCs would not get a damage increase makes no sense
    to me, but that's Capcom for ya.


 Here's a chart showing the hidden Mode differences:
                  
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 MODE NAME    EXPLANATIONS
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 SAIKYOU*     - The damage your attacks inflict is slightly lessened
 (Strongest     regardless of the ISM used.
       Mode)  - Your Guard Power Gauge is drastically shortened.
              - You cannot cancel a ground attack into a special move.
              - You can get dizzied easier (your resistance is halved).

 MAZI         - The damage your attacks inflict is considerably
 (Serious       increased, regardless of the ISM used.
       Mode)  - You take double damage from any attack.
              - Your opponent only needs to win one round to defeat you.

 CLASSICAL    - The damage rating is the same as in X-ISM (x1.2), and
 (Classical     the gameplay is also the same (i.e. Chun-Li is in her
       Mode)    SF2 outfit and has moves like the Sou Hakkei, etc.)
              - In addition to all of X-ISM's restrictions, you lose
                the ability to air recover, reduce block damage, or
                reduce damage taken.
              - Furthermore, you have no Super Combo gauge and no
                Guard Power Gauge (although the latter, if you think
                about it, is beneficial).

 *  Dan doesn't gain any special abilities in this mode, I kinda wish
    he did, but oh well....  Oh yeah, for those of you unfamiliar with
    Dan lore, don't take the translation seriously, "strongest" is just
    a joke.


 This chart illustrates who takes the most damage from attacks:

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 DAMAGE RANKING         WHO FALLS UNDER WHICH RANKING
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Least Damage        :  Zangief

 Less Damage         :  Birdie, Dan, E. Honda, Gen, Ken, R. Mika,
                        Ryu, Sodom, and T. Hawk

 Average Damage      :  Everyone else, mainly:  Adon, Blanka, Cammy,
                        Cody, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, Gouki, Guy, Karin,
                        Nash, Rolento, Rose, Sagat, Sakura, Vega, Dee
                        Jay, Fei Long, Guile, M. Bison, 'Satsui no
                        Hadou' Ryu, Extra M. Bison

 More Damage         :  Balrog, Juli, and Juni

 Most Damage         :  Shin Gouki


 This one shows how large each character's Guard Crush gauge is (all
 the information is according to Jack Lin):

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 PERSON                                      GAUGE SIZE (IN POINTS)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Birdie, Zangief                              :  80  (8 points is approx.
 Karin, Sakura, Vega                          :  76  half a Guard Meter
 Adon, Cody, Honda, Gen, Mika, Sodom, Vega    :  72  section, so 16 is
 Balrog, Cammy, Chun-Li, Nash, Juni, Juli     :  64  one full "block" of
 Everyone else                                :  68  guard power).

 What's written is for the Guard Meters in Z-ISM.  If you're playing
 with an X-ISM character, add 8 points to the numbers shown.  If
 you're using V-ISM, subtract 8.  The lone exception is V-ISM Cody,
 his V-ISM ranking is 48 points (this is because he has the dodge and
 so it's harder to get him to block).  So, Zangief and Birdie have
 the largest guard meter, and V-ISM Cody has the smallest.

 Personally, it seems to me that people in V-ISM have the same size
 Guard Crush meter, but I think this info. was for the Arcade version,
 which might explain why.

 The last of the charts shows who gets dizzied the easiest:

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 PERSON            NEEDED TO DIZZY (IN POINTS)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Gouki            :    34       Note that I don't have the scores for 
 Blanka           :    43       any of the PSX characters (Shin Gouki,
 E. Honda         :    44       Dee Jay, etc.)  I'm not sure if the
 Sodom            :    46       points are damage points or what, but
 Birdie           :    48       what is basically means is that Gouki is
 Zangief          :    50       easy to dizzy, and Zangief is not.
 Everyone else    :    40

 Thanks to Jack Lin for this info (guard size and dizzy info.), and to
 Dan GC for reposting it for me.


 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Doujioshi SP  (Simultaneous Press Special)
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

 This is an ability limited to certain characters (though I'm sure there
 are more undiscovered combinations).  What it basically allows you to
 do is link two attacks together, by pressing LP / LK, then pressing that
 button plus HP / HK as the light attack ends.  This only works for
 X-ISM characters.  If a character has a long range / close range
 attack, you can use either one (for example, Deejay can use his close
 or far LK, and Bison can use his close or far HP attack).  If the
 finishing HP or HK is comboable, you can cancel it into a special move
 or Super Combo.

 Below is a listing of the various types of Doujioshi SP attacks and
 who can use them:

 d + LK, LK + HP:       Ryu, Ken, Gouki, Shin Gouki, Evil Ryu, Gen,
                        Karin, Sakura, Cammy, Juni, Juli, Deejay, Guile
 d + LK, d + LK + HP:   Ryu, Ken, Gouki, Shin Gouki, Evil Ryu, Gen,
                        Karin, Sakura, Cammy, Juni, Juli, Deejay, Guile
 LK, LK + HP:           Guy, Cammy, Juni, Juli, Deejay
 LK, d + LK + HP:       Guy, Cammy, Juni, Juli, Deejay
 LP, LP + HP:           Bison, Extra Bison
 LP, d + LP + HP:       Bison, Extra Bison
 LP, LK + HP:           Adon, Chun-Li, Fei Long
 d + LP, d + LK + HP    Fei Long
 LP, d + LK / HP:       T. Hawk

 There are more than just these--I was in the process of writing them
 all down and I lost the paper I had put my notes on :)  It sucked too,
 since that paper had a list of KoF '98 cancellable attacks I had been
 compiling on the other side ;(  Now I gotta do it all over again, argh.
 So, look for a more complete listing in the next update, eheheh.


-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
BOSS BATTLE CHART
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 SFZ3's game progression has been changed significantly from SFA2.  It
 works like this:

  - After picking a character, you'll get to see a little intro
    explaining who they are and what they're up to.
  - Your 5th battle is against your mid-boss.  There are no special
    requirements to fight him / her, it's automatic.  The only thing
    notable about a mid-boss battle is that you will exchange some
    words with your opponent before the fight begins and sometimes,
    after it ends.
  - Your 9th battle is against your second mid-boss.  Nothing too
    special about this, either.
  - Your 10th battle is usually against Final Vega, a really powerful
    version of Vega.  Some characters will fight someone else for
    their 10th battle, in which case they will then proceed to an
    extra 11th match against Final Vega.
  - If you beat your 10th/11th match, you beat the game and get to
    see your character's ending.  Lose to any character and the game
    ends, but lose to Final Vega and you get to watch a bad ending
    while the credits scroll ;)

 Below is a listing of each character's mid-bosses and final boss:

 Name           5th Battle     9th Battle     10th Battle    11th Battle

WIN POSE LIST
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 Below is a listing of each character's win pose.  Some win poses can
 be gotten by using more than one button, but because it can be random
 in some cases (like using MK with Ryu), use with caution.  For some
 characters, you can only get all poses if you're in a same player
 vs. same player match.  Thanks to NRX for correcting the Japanese
 listed here and providing me with quotes and their meanings.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 ADON
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
  
 LP  Adon laughs and gives his opponent a thumbs down.
 MP  Adon flips back, takes off his tong, and says "Yeah!"
 HP  Adon crosses his arms and laughs.
 LK  Adon turns away, holds out his arms, and looks over his shoulder,
     his teeth gleaming.
 MK  Adon rocks back and forth, then prostrates himself on one knee.
 HK  Like in MK, but he keeps rocking back and forth.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 BALROG

               "Adios."  (Goodbye.)

 LK      Birdie holds up two fingers and says "...to heaven."

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 BLANKA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP      While grinning, Blanka jumps and rolls in place.
 MP      Blanka howls while thrusting his arms into the air.
 HP      Blanka uses his electric powers to start up a blender, then
         drinks the fruit juice inside.
 LK, MK  Blanka does the MP pose repeatedly, without howling.
 HK      Blanka eats a piece of fruit then throws the rind/skin/core
         (depending) onto his opponent's body.  He keeps doing this so
         that soon there's a little pile of stuff lying atop his foe ;)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 CAMMY
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, HK  Cammy poses and then looks towards the screen.
 MP      Cammy salutes Vega, who appears in the air, and says "Yes,
         sir!"
 HP      As with MP, but she simply stands at attention and says
         nothing.
 LK      Cammy turns her back to the screen, gives a thumbs up, and
         looks behind her.

         thumbs up at the end.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  Chun-Li crosses her arms and bows her head.

         her head, and flashes a peace sign while saying "Yatta!"
         (I did it!)
 HP, HK  Chun-Li performs several swift kicks, then draws her leg back
         while shouting.
 *       Chun-Li does her taunt and says "Gomen ne!" (Sorry!"

 *       You'll always get this pose if you get a Perfect Victory.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 CODY
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Any  Cody holds his arms out in an "I dunno" gesture and says "Whew!"
 *    Cody looks behind him and runs off screen.  Edi. E runs onscreen,
      shouts, and fires his gun before chasing after Cody.  Cody then
      runs back, Crack Kicks Edi. E offscreen, and does his LP pose.
 *    Same as above, but Edi. E just chases Cody offscreen, and that's
      it.

 *  Usually, you can get this by holding any button (except LP) after
    winning the final round.  But which pose you get is random, and
    you may just get his "Whew!" gesture anyway.

 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 DAN HIBIKI
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, HK  Dan flexes an arm and shakes it while saying "Yoshaa!"

         (Easy win!)
 HP      Dan stands with his legs close together and with one hand by
         his side.  He gives a thumbs up with his other shaking hand
         and says "Yoyuussu!"  (Piece of cake!) - I guess?
 LK      Same as the LP pose, but Dan is crying and says "Yattaze,
         oyaji!" (I did it, father!)
 MK      Same as the LP pose, but Dan says "Hyaah!"


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 DEE JAY
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, HK  He sticks his hands in his pants and whistles, saying "Thank
         you everyone!"
 MP      He waves two castanets in the air and says "Feel my beat!"
 HP      As in MP, but he poses and says "Oh yeah!" between waves.
 LK      As in LP, but he says "I did okay!"
 MK      As in MP, but he says "Loser!"*

 *  Doesn't the voice acting for Dee Jay just completely suck?


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 DHALSIM
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP      Dhalsim floats in air while mumbling.
 MP      Dhalsim bows his head and clasps his hands while saying "Yoga!"

         enlightment)
 MK, HK  Same as MP, but Dhalsim has the same quote as in LK.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 E. HONDA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, MK, HK  Honda stands up, lifts his arms up, and laughs.
 MP          Honda sticks out an arm and rotates his neck, and says
             "Dosukoi!"  (No real meaning,  it's a traditional sumo
             kiai.)  According to Wanderer, a 'kiai' is something said
             while you attack in martial arts.  The principle is that
             you exert more force when you do something while shouting.
 HP          Honda stands up and holds his arms in a thinking pose,
             with one hand on his chin.  He says, "Sekai wa hiroi nou!"
             (The world is large! - referring to the great number of
             worth opponents)
 LK          Honda gives a thumbs up and says "Donna mon jai!"
             (Anything! - referring to his believe that he can outdo
             anything thrown at him.)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, MP, HK  Guile runs a comb through his hair and says "I'm
             impressed!"

 LK          Guile lifts up an arm and flexes it, smiling and saying
             "Hmph!"
 MK          Guile sticks out two fingers and says "Too easy!" ala Nash.
              

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 GUY
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  Guy crosses his arms.
 MP, MK  Guy turns away, holds an arm up, then lets it fall.  He says
         "Waruku omou na."  (Don't think badly of me)
 HP, HK  Guy holds his other arm by the wrist, with his fingers pointed
         up.  He says "Korezo, Bushin-ryuu!"  (This is Bushin style!)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 JUNI / JULI
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, MK  Either one does a salute and Vega appears in mid-air.
 MP, HK  Either one stands at attention and Vega appears in mid-air.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 KARIN KANZUKI
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP  Karin covers her mouth while laughing.
 MP  Karin rests her cheek on her hand with her eyes closed.  She
     says, "Kono Karin ni kateru to omotte?"  (Did you think you
     could beat me?)
 HP  Karin poses, and her servant runs up and kneels, offering her a
     drink.
 LK  Karin poses, and her servant runs up with a first aid kit and
     begins looking worriedly over Karin's opponent.
 MK  Karin poses and her servant runs by with a dish, a poodle
     following him.
 HK  Karin poses as in her HP win pose.
                  

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 KEN
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  Ken lifts an arm into the air.
 MP, MK  Ken runs a hand through his hair, gives a peace sign, and
         says "Yattaze!" (I did it!)
 HP, HK  Ken holds out his arm and gives a peace sign while saying
         "Yattaze!"


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 M. BISON / EXTRA M. BISON
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 P, LK, MK  While chuckling, Bison turns towards the screen and flexes
            his arms.
 HK         As with LK, but Bison rips off his shirt and keeps flexing.
            (If you use Extra M. Bison, he only flexes once while
            his shirt comes off).


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 NASH
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 P       Nash puts on his glasses and says "Hmph!"
 LK, MK  Nash turns away, runs a hand through his hair, and says "Too
         easy!"
 HK      Nash adjusts his jacket, squints, and says "Hmph!"
 

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 RAINBOW MIKA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP          Mika jumps up and down with her arms out while saying
             "Katta!"  (I win!)
 MP, MK, HK  Same as LP, but Mika stops afterwards while her trainer
             drives by in a little cart, holding a wooden sword.
 HP          Same as LP, but her trainer drives up and nods.
 LK          Same as LP, but her trainer leaves behind a tire which
             Mika ties to herself before running off-screen.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 ROLENTO
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP  Rolento turns around, snaps his fingers, and says "Mission
     complete!"  While this is happening, a row of El Gatos descend and
     stab their knives downwards.
 MP  Rolento tosses a grenade at his foe and laughs when they're hit.
 HP  As in the LP win, but one of the El Gatos stabs out of sync.
 LK  As in the HP win, but the same El Gato instead drops down with the
     Take No Prisoner hook, then pops offscreen.
 MK  As in the LP win, but the El Gatos come down repeatedly in a wave
     formation.
 HK  Rolento turns around, snaps his fingers, and says "Mission
     complete!"


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 ROSE
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP  Rose waves a finger while wind ruffles her scarf and says "Mada
     mada ne."  (You're too slow.)
 MP  Rose lets her scarf drape to the ground and an orb of Soul Energy
     runs along it.  She then says, "Yaru janai."  (Not bad.)
 HP  Rose creates a double and both perform her LP pose with a
     different quote, "Soreja, dame."  (That won't do.)
 LK  Rose creates a double and they lean against each other.  Rose
     opens her eyes while the double's remain closed.  Rose then
     says, "Daijobu?"  (Are you all right?)
 MK  Rose erects a large tarot card in front of her.  It flips around
     and vanishes, momentarily obscuring her.  When it's gone, she's
     wearing a ballgown and is holding several tarot cards.  She then
     says "Ciao!"  (Goodbye!)
 HK  While the wind blows her hair and scarf, Rose takes out a tarot
     card, examines it, and lets it fall from her hand.  Rose remarks,
     "Nattenaiwa...."  (I'm not sure....)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 RYU
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  Ryu raises one arm into the air.
 MP, MK  Ryu crosses his arms and wind ruffles his hair.
 HP, HK  Same as MP, but he notices a leaf blowing by his feet.
 *       Ryu turns his back to the screen.

 *  Only happens if you kill someone with the Metsu Shouryuu Ken or
    Shin Shouryuu Ken (I thought you got a different pose for each?)


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 SAGAT
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  Sagat gets into a thinking pose, grins, and laughs.
 MP, MP  Sagat looks towards the screen, crosses his arms and laughs.
 HP, HK  Sagat crosses his arms, then looks away and laughs.

           
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 SAKURA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP  Sakura lifts an arm up while laughing, the wind blowing her
     clothes.
 MP  Sakura sways back and forth, doing a little dance.
 HP  Sakura throws several kicks while yelling, and her shoe flies off
     and hits her in the head.
 LK  Same as her HP pose, but her shoe stays on.
 MK  Sakura rubs her nose and then waves her hand while saying
     "Konna toko da ne!"  (That's how it's done!)
 HK  Sakura crosses her arms and looks away ala Ryu, the wind blowing
     her skirt up.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 SATSUI NO HADOU NI MEZAMETA RYU
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, HP          Ryu turns his back to the screen.
 LK, MP, MK, HK  Ryu crosses his arms and wind ruffles his hair.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 SODOM
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, HK  Sodom bows to his opponent.
 MP      Sodom takes out a fan and waves it, making a font of water
         emerge.  He says "Appare!"  (Bravo!)
 HP      Sodom takes out a fan and waves it, making some butterflies
         appear.  He says "Bureiko!"  (According to Nick Des Barres,
         he has no idea why Sodom says this.  The term means
         "dispensing with formalities," and is used to describe the
         attitude at special company parties, etc. in Japan, when
         bosses and underlings can party together, forgetting about
         rank entirely for one day).
 LK *    Sodom crouches and spins his weapons around.
 MK *    Same as in LK, but the weapons come out of his hands and he
         looks around.

 *  X-ISM Sodom has his LK and MK poses replaced with his MP and HP
    poses, respectively.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 THUNDERHAWK
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  He whistles and says "Ey!", and an eagle lands on his hand,
         making him smile.
 MP, MK  He stands up and smiles and says "Huh!"
 HP, HK  Same as in MP, but an eagle lands on his shoulder.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 VEGA
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP, LK  Vega looks towards the screen and drags a thumb across his
         throat.
 MP, MK  Vega crosses his arms and says "Hmph, nurui wa!"  (You suck!)
 HP, HK  Vega teleports into the air and floats there while laughing.


 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
 ZANGIEF
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

 LP  Zangief throws his arms up and grunts.
 MP  As with LP, but he has a quote.
 HP  Zangief flexes his chest muscles, then poses and grins while
     saying "Bolishoi paveida!"  (Big victory!) - I think! ;)  
 LK  As with HP, but he laughs instead.
 MK  Zangief takes a flask of vodka from his belt, drinks it, and
     breathes out a blast of fire.  While he's breathing, Blanka drops
     down and holds out a fish so that Zangief ends up cooking it.
     Blanka goes off-screen with a grin, and Zangief looks back at the
     screen, grinning, his face covered in ash.
 HK  As with MK, but Blanka stays hanging from the ceiling along with
     the fish, both of them charred.

PRE-FIGHT ANIMATIONS
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 Rather than attempt to list every situation under which you can see
 these pre-fight animations, I'm just going to list what works.
 Furthermore, it doesn't matter who is first or second player (i.e.
 Gen vs. Shin Gouki or Shin Gouki vs. Gen will both work, if the
 conditions are right).  Since the easiest way to test the animations
 is in Versus Mode, that's where you should go if you want to see them
 (with the exception of any animation involving Final Vega).

 Some characters have different pre-fight animations when you use the
 same character vs. the same character.  Such characters include:
 Blanka, Cody, Karin, Rainbow Mika, and T. Hawk.  Some characters have
 more than one intro, though, so even if you pick same chararcter vs.
 same character, you may not get the intro anyway.

  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  ANYBODY vs. MIKE BISON
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   M. Bison must be in Shadowlaw-ISM  (for instance, if you
                fight him in Survival Mode's Boss lineup).
  Description:  There is a punching bag hanging from the ceiling; Bison
                comes running in with a Dash Straight and destroys it.
                He then punches his hands together ala his taunt, and
                throws a quick series of punches at his opponent.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  "SATSUI NO HADOU" RYU vs. GOUKI / SHIN GOUKI
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   None.
  Description:  Both characters warp towards each other and attempt
                a Shun Goku Satsu at the same time.  They both get
                knocked back from the result, just as if they had
                been Guard Crushed.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  RYU vs. "SATSUI NO HADOU" RYU
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   None.
  Description:  Ryu attempts a Metsu Shouryuu Ken on Evil Ryu, who
                turns around in time to Zero Counter it, although he
                throws a 3-hit Shakunetsu Hadou Ken (like Gouki)
                instead of a sweep or Shouryuu Ken.  Ryu, however,
                blocks the fireball in the nick of time.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  GEN vs. GOUKI / SHIN GOUKI
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  Gouki tries to surprise Gen with a Shun Goku Satsu,
                but Gen counters it and then tries his Zan'ei, which
                Akuma similarily blocks.  Although the characters start
                off on the wrong sides of the screen, they end up in
                their proper positions once they've finished attacking
                each other.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  RYU vs. KEN
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   Won't work during Ryu's boss fight with Ken (it will if
                you lose and continue, though).
  Description:  Ken is giving Ryu a noogie; Ryu responds by throwing
                Ken aside, who lands on his feet on the other side of
                the screen.  While nooging Ryu, Ken says, "Tataki
                tsubushite yaruze!" which means "I'll beat you
                senseless!"


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  RYU vs. KEN  (sort of a special post-fight animation) ;-)
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   You must pick Z-ISM Ryu in Survival Mode (Arcade or
                Original style).
                Beat Ken with a Level 3 Shinkuu Hadou Ken or Shinkuu
                Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku.
  Description:  After Ken hits the floor, Ryu walks up to him and
                extends a hand, smiling.  Ken props himself up and
                takes Ryu's hand (sort of like the reverse of Ken's
                ending in SFA2).


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  KEN vs. RYU  (thanks to Fred Davis for explaining how this works)
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   You must pick Team Mode and make 2-man teams.  The
                second character for one player must be Ryu, and the
                other must be Ken.  Defeat your opponents so that you
                are on the final round with Ryu and Ken, then have
                Ken beat Ryu with a Level 3 version of the Shouryuu
                Reppa, Shinryuu Ken, or use the Shippuujinrai Kyaku.
  Description:  After Ryu hits the floor, Ken walks up to him and
                extends a hand, smiling.  Ryu props himself up and
                takes Ken's hand (just like in Ken's SFA2 ending).
  Extra:        This trick can be done in reverse (Ryu defeats Ken
                with a Level 3 Shinkuu Hadou Ken or Shinkuu Tatsumaki
                Senpuu Kyaku) to see the Ryu vs. Ken pose.  I've done
                the Ken vs. Ryu pose before in Survival Mode, but
                this method seems to be the only one that works every
                time.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  GUY vs. CODY
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  On Cody's side of the screen, there are a pyramid of
                oil drums.  He walks on screen, destroying the drums as
                he goes with his Final Destruction combo (including the
                F.D. throw).  While this is going on, Guy is standing on
                the other side of the screen in his MP win pose.  A
                bunch of oil drums fall down on top of him, draining
                some of his life.  He then performs a Bushin Senpuu Kyaku
                (Final Fight-style) to destroy them all.  Left behind on
                the ground is a piece of food (gum, beef, etc.), which
                Guy then walks over, thereby restoring his missing life
                back to full.  Just like in Final Fight, a picture of the
                food item taken and it's name will appear beneath Guy's
                life gauge.
   Extra:       In Survival Mode, Guy will gain back all his life from
                eating the food, even if he has very little left!


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  ADON vs. SAGAT
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  Adon and Sagat are close to each other, throwing kicks
                which they both counter.  Their final attacks cancel
                out as if they had been Zero Countered.  Sagat does his
                LP pose, while Adon stands triumphantly and yells, his
                teeth gleaming while he gives a thumbs up.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  RYU vs. SAGAT  (SATSUI NO HADOU RYU vs. SAGAT)
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   Sagat must be computer controlled.  The version of Ryu
                used and ISM of Sagat affects this animation.
  Description:  (Ryu vs. X-ISM Sagat)
                Sagat is standing nearby holding Dan in his PP throw.
                There is a flash of light and the screen turns black as
                Sagat performs a LP Tiger Uppercut on his opponent.  He
                then leaps back, rubs his scar (which glows), and laughs.
                
                (Ryu vs. Z-ISM Sagat / Satsui no Hadou Ryu vs. Sagat)
                Sagat is standing nearby.  He leaps back, rubs his scar,
                (which glows), and laughs.

                (Ryu vs. V-ISM Sagat)  Sagat is standing nearby, and
                Dan is lying on the ground, his head held by Sagat.
                Sagat tosses Dan aside and his geta fall off and bounce
                against the floor.  Sagat then leaps back, rubs his
                scar (which glows), and laughs.

  
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  DAN vs. SAGAT
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   None.
  Description:  While Sagat is doing his LP win pose, Dan rolls up and
                performs his MK win pose.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  DAN vs. BLANKA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   (Still unknown, may have been cut out)
  Description:  The truck that Blanka comes out of is onscreen, but
                instead Dan bursts out of it, rolls to a stop, and
                taunts.  Blanka then hops out of the back of the truck
                and bounces atop Dan's head dizzying him, before
                landing on the other side of the screen.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  DAN vs. SAKURA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  Dan does his normal introduction, but Sakura stands
                there and scratches her forehead, looking uneasy.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  SODOM vs. HONDA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   (Still unknown, may not even exist)
  Description:  I haven't ever seen this one.  Supposedly Honda and
                Sodom do traditional Sumo poses prior to the round
                beginning (remember that in Sodom's SFA2 ending, he
                appeared to fight Honda [aka Fujinoyama]).


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  SAKURA vs. KARIN
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  Karin does her normal introduction, but Sakura stands
                there and scratches her forehead, looking uneasy.
  Extra:        Supposedly there is another version of this intro in
                which Karin hops out of a helicopter.  I've never seen
                it, though, and it was probably cut out of the PSX
                version.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  GUY vs. KARIN
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   (Still unknown, may have been cut out)
  Description:  See the 'Extra' description under Sakura vs. Karin.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  MIKA vs. ZANGIEF
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   (Still unknown)
  Description:  Mika and Zangief do their normal intros, but there is
                a spotlight shining down on both of them.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  NASH vs. GUILE
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   None (only in Versus Mode?)
  Description:  Nash and Guile salute each other (two fingers by the
                side of the head).


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  ROSE vs. VEGA / FINAL VEGA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  While Vega is descending from the air, Rose gets pushed
                back by his Psycho Power.  She repsonds by throwing a
                tarot card at him, which he deflects.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  CAMMY vs. VEGA / FINAL VEGA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  Vega is standing on the ground with his cape surrounding
                him.  He gestures at Cammy with a glowing hand, then
                gets into his normal stance.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  NASH vs. VEGA / FINAL VEGA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   One character must be computer controlled.
  Description:  Nash's Harrier jet flies overhead and he drops down
                from it, tugs on his jacket, then turns to face Vega.


  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  CHUN-LI vs. FINAL VEGA
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Conditions:   Only works if you get to Final Vega in Arcade Mode.
  Description:  Chun-Li threatens Vega with a pistol, then tosses it
                aside.
                                                                                       
 Nicholas Cheung adds:  "Some of the special intros will not happen
 the first time you face the CPU form of the character if it is one of
 your mid-bosses.  If you lose to that character, then if you continue,
 you will get to see the special intro when you face that character
 again.  (Example is Ryu vs. CPU Ken on Stage 9)"

TRANSLATIONS

 These were done mostly by me and so may not be correct.  Some move
 names are omitted if they've appeared previously in the list or if I
 don't have the kanji and so can't make a proper translation.

   'Musou Renge' elsewhere, I'll keep the spelling as it is, unless
   someone can correct me.  After all, the SFZ3:PP manual also lists
   Balrog's Scarlet Terror move as "Charge db,f"! ;-)

  - I always assumed 'Ten Chuu Satsu' meant 'Destruction of the Pillars
    of Heaven'.  However, in Sodom's stage, the kanji is shown, and the
    'chuu' kanji represents 'middle' instead of 'pillar'.  Then again,
    this could be an intentional misspelling, just like the kanji on
    Sodom's outfit (which is probably supposed to be the kanji for
    'death', but was apparently mispelled by Sodom).

+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+
REVISION HISTORY
+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+-----+

 VERSION 0.7  (June 10, 1999)
   A few more minor updates and whatnot.  The Turn Punch timer trick and
   Dan Kouryuu Ken tricks have been added, and the code to use Final
   Vega has been included and tested.

 VERSION 0.6  (May 5, 1999)
   This is a rather minor update, but an important one--the disclaimer
   has been revised.  Although I'd like to think otherwise, the US
   version of SFA3 will be coming out any time now, and I'd be a dunce
   to believe that there's not some unscrupulous bastard out there
   waiting to make some quick cash off of this.  Oh yes, there have been
   a few FAQ-related updates as well ^_^;

 VERSION 0.5  (April 7, 1999)
   I'd like to give a big thanks to Chris of Dash Taisen, an excellent
   site that you can find at (www.dashtaisen.com).  If you're a
   translation nut like me, you'll be glad to know that he even has the
   Japanese and English translations for normal attacks!  Anyway, I'd
   like to thank Chris for letting me use some information and move name
   info. from the Dash Taisen site.

 VERSION 0.4  (March 3, 1999)
   Another update, lots of corrections and additions.  As you may
   notice, I haven't quite gotten everything in yet, though.  I
   was getting my copy of SFZ3 replaced since the original disc was
   faulty, hence the delay.

   Also, I _am_ busy as heck with college, so if you mail me, please
   don't mail again asking why I haven't responded yet.  A bunch of
   people have been doing this and I just don't have the time to sit
   down and answer everyone's mail.  I will address any important
   issues in the FAQ, though.

 VERSION 0.3  (January 13, 1999)
   A real quick update, none of the stuff I promised in the last update
   has been stuck in yet, but there's been some other cool stuff added.
   (I just realized that I never mentioned how to get Extra M. Bison and
   Shin Gouki, although it does say how to in the game itself).  Next
   one should be good as I have a week's worth-plus of back mail to dig
   through and pick out the juicy SFZ3 stuff :)  So look for that next
   Friday or earlier.

   Oh yeah, anyone with World Tour questions should check out
   www.gamefaqs.com, there's a World Tour Guide up there that's really
   detailed.  Kudos to the author for such a good job.  My World Tour
   section is gonna look pitiful by comparison, I'm sure. ^_^;

   Also, now that I'm back hitting the books (end of Christmas vacation),
   I'm not gonna have a lot of free time.  So there will be the infamous
   KM-style hella long delay for answering mail.  If you don't get a
   reply, sorry, but that's life (hey, I have a guitar class now, it's
   time to jam!)

 VERSION 0.2  (January 6, 1999)
   More updates and additions, as usual.  The 'pre-fight animations'
   stuff should all be completed by the next update, not to mention
   a bunch of other stuff (including World Tour instructions and menu
   info., which a couple of people have been asking for).

 VERSION 0.1  (December 30, 1998)
   Whew!  I think I've just played this game for two days straight.
   Gotta stop for a while!  There's a lot more to add and quite a bit
   of stuff to put back in from my arcade SFA3 FAQ, but this will have
   to do for the first revision.

 This FAQ was originally based on my 'Street Fighter Alpha 3' Arcade FAQ,
 from Version 0.1  (July 1, 1998), to Version 2.0  (December 19, 1998).

SPECIAL THANKS

  I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the SFA3 FAQ for all
  their help and information.  I'd also like to thank:
