  FAQ copyrighted by Insun. Suikoden is copyrighted by Konami. Bless Konami 
for such a wonderful, endearing game. Polygons and stunning graphics are all
that, but for me it's always been the gameplay and the characters. And trust
me, Suikoden II has a GREAT storyline, some great characters, and absolutely
stunning music. Anyway, distribute this for free, just make sure my name is 
on it somewhere. ^^ Keep the disclaimer, too. ^^

  This is for the Japanese version of Suikoden II. I don't know what changes
they plan to make to the game in the English version, but doubtless it will
be minor (like in Suikoden I) so I guess this would be okay for the English
  Oh yes, the romanization. Most of these are straight romanization of their
names; for those characters that appeared in the original Suikoden I just 
gave their English names (which are not far off the mark of the original,

Character Combinations
  For all those that remember, Gensou Suikoden had certain combos by certain
characters available provided you had the right party. The same thing can be
found in Suikoden II; that is, if you have the right characters in your 
party, certain options will open up and you can do combos that are much more
powerful than the characters' attacks by themselves. 
  However, a new thing has been added: unlike the previous combos from
Suikoden I, Suikoden II doesn't always use an attack combo. Many of them can
also charm or heal in addition to attack (for example, the combo between the
main character and Nanami will heal and attack). This has made the combo
system potentially VERY useful (especially in those tight situations where
healing is really needed and you've run out of magic/items). So keep in mind
what each attack does. ^_^
  I have not given a description of the attack on all of them because I 
think it's more fun to experiment and view for yourself. ^_^

2 Character Combos

1. Main character, Joey
  Note: Joey and main character encircle around one enemy and hit. 
  Very neat to watch; just remember that you ain't going to see this combo
  for very long (as you'll see as the game progresses) so make the most of 
  it while you can. ^^  
2. Main character, Nanami
  Note: Nanami heals for 10% of HP (I think) while main character 
3. Gengen, Gabocha
  Note: uh....something like a 100 of them run over the enemy. ^^ 
  Honest. ^^
4. Meg, Karakuri
5. Viktor, Flik
  Note: Don't feel like spoiling it. ^^ I'm sure all of you fans are
  enthused by Flik and Viktor coming back, right?
6. Kinisun, Stallion 
  Note: Is it just me, or is Stallion the only elf among the stars?
7. Rikimaru, Amada
8. Chai, Tomo
  Note: It sort of looks like a wind boomerang rushing forward. 
9. Tengaar, Hix
  Note: Hix leaps forward toward 1 enemy while Hix casts magic. I guess they 
  really do love each other. ^^
10. Kasumi, Mondo
11. Furiido Y, Yotsuno
  Note: They leap forward together and slash down on the enemy. 
12. Chako, Tsudo
13. Maikuroifu, Camus 
  Note: Why do the remind me of Alen and Grenseal from Suikoden I?
14. Zekkii; Azezuboa OR Ruroradeia
  Note: Have you ever seen an octopus hop...?
15. Zeekufuudo, Fuezaa
16. Azezuboa, Ruroradeia
  Note: TWO of them!! o_O
17. Sen, Genjyuu
18. Vincent, Simon
  Note: Hee, Vincent de Boule finally fights! ^O^ However, this is one 
  freakishly appropriate combo for him...all roses. ^^
19. Ronchanchan, Wakaba
20. Flik, Nina
  Note: I ruptured something when I saw this one. ^O^ Just to tell you, Nina
  seems to have a little bit (okay, BIG) crush on Flik. ^^ And she's only 16,
  while Flik is 27. Talk about wanting older men! ^^;; Poor Flik. First he 
  loses Odessa, then attracts a really old woman (Kimberly), and now he 
  attracts a girl WAY too young (Nina). ^^ I feel kind of sorry for him. ^^ 
21. Main Character, Hoi
22. Hanna, Ouran
23. Shiro; Gengen OR Gabocha
24. Valeria, Anita
25. Kinisun, Shiro

3 Character Combos

1. Airi, Riina, Borugan
  Note: Borgan plays human flamethrower. ^^
2. Tengaar, Mirii, Meg
  Note: Another version of the former Pretty Girl Attack, I guess. ^_^
3. Borugan, Ganteshi, Ronchanchan
  Note: It looks like a laser light display. ^^
4. Flik, Camus, Maikuroifu
  Note: Ah! So that's why Camus and Maikiroifu remind me of Alen and 
  Grenseal. 'Tis another version of the Pretty Boy Attack. ^^
5. Shiera, Bobu, Borugan
6. Fushichi, Sasuke, Rushiku
7. Gijimu, Kouyuu, Rouen
8. Karen, Kasumi, Riina, Lorelai (any 3)
  Note: A pretty woman attack. ^^

4 Character Combos

1. Lorelai, Riina, Karen, Kasumi
  Note: an enhanced version of the 3 girl attack. Lots more hearts, if you
  ask me. ^^

5 Character Combos

1. Makumaku, Mikumiku, Mukumuku, Mekumeku, Mokumoku
  Note: Erk. ^^ They look like flying squirrels. Sorry. ^^ 

  I don't know if they'll keep it or not in the English version (well, it's
highly likely because we DID get Suikoden I here in the US) but Suikoden II 
has a little special omake (gift) for all those who played Suikoden I and 
kept the saved Suikoden game on their card. Depending on whether or not you
saved Gremio or not, if you DID keep the former saved game, you get to have
the former hero (named whatever you named him in the first game) PLUS Gremio
(IF you saved him) to join your party in Suikoden II. ^_^ I highly recommend
you do this, even if it means buying Suikoden I (but then, you already did, 
right, because why else are you playing Suikoden II?) because not only are
you treated to a lot of fun scenes (ie, the one between the hero and Kasumi--
apparently she still has feelings for him), there's a special combo between
the main character of Suikoden I and the main character of Suikoden II. It's
very cool, and just a lot of fun to watch. ^_^ 

Eh, that's it. ^_^ I spent a lot of time figuring out a lot of these combos.
