    Subject: [TK3] Tekken 3 - Ling Xiaoyu Movelist/Description
    Date: 29 Jan 1997 01:17:49 GMT
    
    As I promised, here is everything I know about Ling Xiaoyu (one of the
    new characters in Tekken 3).  Most of these moves have "official names"
    listed on the cabinet, but I don't have them in front of me right now.
    I'll try to make up the most descriptive/appropriate name possible.
    
    Listed in no particular order:
    
    LP, RP			Quick one-two.  Very quick.
    d/b+LP			Power Punch (Extremely fast - useful counter)
    d+LP+RP			Puts Ling in her crouching stance
    d+LP+RP, RP		Crouching stance to immediate uppercut (juggles)
    u/f+RK			Jumping Overhead kick (Mid-level -- slow)
    d+LP			Fans her arms and gets to a crouch (Mid)
    b+LP			Small open hand strike at mid level (??)
    d+LK+RK			Spinning Axis shift (Like Michelle)
    D,LK,RP,LP,RK		Four hit flurry (Juggles)
    d/f+LP			Uppercut (juggles) (Might be d/f+RP . don't 
    				remember)
    u+LP+RP, RP		Spreads arms out for two hits.  (Not great)
    
    Moves done while crouching
    LP+RP			Uppercut.  (Juggles)
    d/f+RK, RK		Two sweep kicks (Like Shun frm VF series)
    LK~RK			Big sweep (knocks down)
    u+RK,RK			Twirling kick (mid level)
    
    Moves I've seen, but don't know how to do:
    A roll forward from the crouch position.
    A sideway, evasive roll from the crouch position.
    Assuming the backwards position.
    The quick flipkick from the backwards position.
    
    After a week of getting pummelled with her, I've finally managed
    to come up with a style of play that allows me to hold 6-10 game
    winning streaks.  She is most dangerous from the ducking position.
    She can uppercut (juggles very quickly), sweep (knocks down) and 
    she automatically ducks all high attacks and many mid-level
    attacks.  Unfortunately, she can not block any low level attacks
    from this position.
    
    My most effective post-juggle combo is JUGGLE, LP, RP (quick
    punches), d/b+LP (Power Punch).
    
    I'd appreciate it if anyone could add to this list or send me
    effective strategies with Xiaoyu.  Coming later: more TK3
    news and my conversation with the Namco employee.
