    TEKKEN 3 FAQ (for both the arcade and ps version)

    this faq is copyright 2000-2001 Joseph Christopher
                                                                                       
    I didn't believe there will come a time when I'll have to write something          
    like this just to remind some people of what they all should be knowing            
    by heart :( Anyway, here goes...

    * This society does not care if you're the dumbest vegetable on earth,             
      if you do something wrong, someone will make you pay the price! ;)               
                                                                                       
    * Lei is to Jacky Chan as Law is to Bruce Lee. Everything from the ability
      to fight in different stances, being an on-rusher instead of a counter
      attacker, and knowing how to pack a gun. He's even depicted as a supercop,
      much like the usual Jacky Chan role in Holywood movies. The only difference,
      perhaps, is his hair, which is very, very long. Anyway, I enjoy watching
      his (Jacky's) movies a lot and so I have also learned to love playing
      as his incarnation in the Tekken world. But Lei can very well still be
      a good choice of yours for the following reasons:
                                                                           
    1. Lei has a total of TWELVE stances excluding the normal one (and beleive
       me, you'll find a good strategy for ALL of them!)
    2. Lei's stances are intertwined (meaning a whole lot of his moves can
       be made to end up in another stance)
    3. Lei can very well mix-up high attacks, low attacks, and sidesteps.
    4. Lei can easily link his juggles with his low parry
    5. Lei can slide without having to run first
    6. Lei can GAIN LIFE during the game! (well, not much, really, but cool
       enough!)

    These moves you'll have to use at random to win:
    (not all are here cause I'll be including a lot in the stances section)
                                                                           
    1) Razor Rush - F,N,1,2,1,2
                                                                           
            Lei steps forward and out comes two pairs of left-right punches
       that do more damage than the jabs(LPs) yet less than the strong ones
       (RPs). This move, in my opinion, is all you need to win. It is a move
       so complicated yet so easy to understand that it actually deserves a
       separate section in my faq. See that section for more details on this
       move and how to effectively use it.
                                                                           
    2) Rush Combo - F,N,4,1,2,3
                                                                           
            Again, Lei steps forward but this time he does a high kick followed
       by two quick punches to the midsection and finally a roundhouse kick
       that's enough to knock the opponent off his feet. If the opponent blocks,
       however, you can do one of two things: tap 4 to deliver a high kick
       similar to the first attack you did only this time it does more damage
       and temporarily stuns the opponent, OR...tap D+4 to deliver a sweep
       that does less damage, but adds a confusing strategy for this move---
       nice!
                                                                           
    3) Rave Spin - DB+4
                                                                           
            You turn around while trying to crouch and stretch out your farther
       leg to sweep the opponent in the process---all in a fraction of a second.
       A good strategy for this move would be to use it after throwing a couple
       of jabs when the opponent is expecting another high attack. There are
       two ways to end this move: One, tap D or U to get into the Snake Stance
       (see stances section) and two, tap 4 once again to deliver a hopping
       roundhouse kick that does decent damage.
                                                                           
    4) Crescent Kick - 3,4
                                                                           
            You again turn around but this time you hop and make a 180degree
       arc with both legs, using the farther one to hit the opponent's head.
       You end up in a Back Stance (see stances section) or, if you tap D,
       a Knockdown Stance. What's more, if you hold U, you can get two additional
       crescent kicks just in case the first one messes up. You may release
       the U after the first kick to cancel the third one, and again hit D
       to end up in a Knockdown Stance, it really is your choice---cool! Oh,
       and one last thing: you can hold F during or even before the first
       Crescent Kick to make you sidestep in the process, making you end up,
       most of the time, facing the opponent's back. You may, as usual, hold
       U afterwards to continue with the rest of the move or D to enter the
       Knockdown Stance.
                                                                           
    5) Rolling Kicks - 4,4,3,3
                                                                           
            Lei goes into a Knockdown Stance, kicks with one leg, then the other,
       and finally an upward kick that launches the opponent in mid-air. Looks
       like a good set-up for juggles, but because you end up in a Post-slide
       Stance, there's nothing much you can do afterwards. What you CAN do is
       use this move as a juggle ENDER rather than starter.
                                                                           
    6) Cannonball - B+1+2
                                                                           
            High on damage, speed, recovery, and effectivity. In this move,
        Lei bends way back before giving the opponent a powerful head butt.
        This "bending" makes the move a good evasion tactic for throws and
        other high attacks before you effectively counter. You may also use
        this move as a juggle ender when you happen to forget your juggling
        strategies cause it definitely does more damage than an incomplete
        juggle.
                                                                           
    * These are not really needed to win a game but some may be added to
      combos as stated in my combos section:
                                                                           
    7) Flying Kick - F,F,F+3
                                                                           
            Whenever an opponent tries to roll away from danger, or when
       he's just pulling off ten-hit combos like crazy, dash back and do
       this, if he manages to block, follow up with a Rave Spin.
                                                                           
    8) Falling Tree - UF+2
                                                                           
            Lei hops and and gives the opponent an elbow drop. The best time
       to use this move is when your opponent is lying helpless on the ground.
       There are other, more damaging replacements for this move but I'm pretty
       sure this one's the safest in terms of execution and recovery. By the
       way, you end up in a Play Dead Stance(see stances section).
                                                                           
    9) High-Low Kick - 3,3
                                                                           
            Yep, it's a high kick followed by a low one---the name just said
       it all. Do not use this on experts since they most likely have at least
       five ways to counter it. You end up in a Back Stance, and this just
       makes the move all the more counterable.
                                                                           
    10) Set-up Kick - F,N,3
                                                                           
            This move is identical to the last kick of the Rush Combo and would
       therefore have the same properties. You can also follow it up with a
       4 to deliver the same high kick in the rush combo only this time it
       does more damage and temporarily stuns the opponent, OR...a D+4 to deliver
       a sweep that does less damage, but adds a confusing strategy for this
       move---nice! (though I'd rather do the Rush Combo)
                                                                           
    11) Hook Punch - 1+2
                                                                           
            It's a hook punch, what else? Nothing much I can say about this
        move 'cept for the fact that it makes you end up in a Back Stance.
                                                                           
    12) Cartwheel Kick - 4,3
                                                                           
            Well, it ain't really a cartwheel kick per se, but, you DO hop a
        bit, spin in mid-air, and kick the opponent's face before you land
        on the ground in a Post-slide Stance.
                                                                           
    13) Defense Breaker - F,N,2,1,2,1
                                                                           
            A series of punches that would make a blocking opponent stagger,
        giving you an opportunity to strike freely. On the down side, this
        move was conceived specifically for blockers so it won't execute if
        the first punch connects.
                                                                           
    14) Beating Kick - F+4,2,1,2
                                                                           
            Also a very useful confuser, but because of the presence of the
        Razor Rush and the Rush Combo, is really not that important anymore.
        It starts with a high-damaging roundhouse kick that knocks the opponent
        off his feet, followed up by three midsection punches just in case
        the first attack messes up. You may end this move in two ways: One,
        tap 4 to deliver a mid kick, and two, tap 3 for a low kick that sweeps.

    1) Double Foot Stomp - 1+3
                                                                           
            As the name suggests, you hold both his opponent's shoulders, lean
       on them, hop, rest both your folded legs on his chest, and apply a great
       amount of force by stretching both your legs out and letting go of his
       shoulders. You'd be propelling yourself diagonally upward in the process
       while your opponent is hurled way back.
                                                                           
    2) Sleeper Hold - 2+4
                                                                           
            Lei wraps one of his arms around the opponent's head and drags
       it with him as he tries to sit down. He then uses his other arm to kind
       of "crack" the neck of his opponent.
                                                                           
    3) Closing Fan - 1+3/2+4 (right side of opponent)
                                                                           
            Lei keeps his opponent in place by locking on of his arms. He then
       kicks the opponent's shin with his left foot, followed by a high kick
       to the face with the same leg. Finally, he lets go and gives one last
       kick---a crescent kick!
                                                                           
    4) Sailboat Stretch - 1+3/2+4 (left side of opponent)
                                                                           
            Similar to Law's hopping frog, this move positions the opponent's
       foot beside his head in an attemp to break one of his legs. The difference
       is how Lei does it---by crawling under the opponent's legs, standing
       up to raise one of them, and doing a crescent kick without a target
       just to rest his whole weight on that leg and force it towards the
       opponent's head.
                                                                           
    5) Booby Trap - 1+3/2+4 (behind the opponent)
                                                                           
            Lei holds both the opponent's shoulders, pulls them backwards,
       and slides both his legs out from underneath. The opponent expects this
       and is almost ready to counter but Lei suddenly withdraws and pushes
       the opponent from behind instead to further take advantage of his (opponent's)
       loss of balance.
                                                                           
    6) Tripping - F,F,1+2
                                                                           
            Once again, the opponent's shoulders are held but this time Lei
       pulls them sidewards while sticking his foot out a bit to what else
       but trip the opponent!
                                                                           
    7) Dragon Falls - UF+1+2
                                                                           
            The People's Elbow! Lei pulls one of the opponent's arms to keep
       him off balanced. He then stands side by side with his opponent, then
       forces the opponent to lie down by lying down himself. Of course, he
       plants his elbow on the opponent's chest in the process, and ends up
       in a Facedown Stance (see stances section)

    * Generally speaking, stances will only allow you to execute one attack
      before they revert to the normal one. I'd just be mentioning the exceptions
      along the way.
                                                                           
    * Switching between stances usually requires the tapping of U or D. These
      moves are listed assuming your OPPONENT is facing left. Otherwise, whether
      you're in front of him or not, reverse stance switch codes.
                                                                           
    1) Snake - 1+4(during sidestep) or F+2+3
                                                                           
               description: right leg raised; right arm mimics the actions
                            of a snake; left arm supports right one
               blocking   : high only
               left punch : a quick jab by the supporting arm
               right punch: another quick jab that comes out a little slower
                            than the previous one but does more damage and
                            may stun the opponent on perfect timing.
               left kick  : identical to the last hit of his Rolling Kicks;
                            also launches the opponent in mid-air and makes
                            him end up in a Post-slide Stance
               right kick : a shin kick that does not go into the normal stance
                            but back to the Snake Stance instead
                                                                           
       Other moves:
                                                                           
       a) Rushing Snake - 1,1,1,1,1,1
                                                                           
               The fastest six hit combo in all of Tekken. It's composed mainly,
          or rather ONLY, of the same jab that Lei does in his left punch,
          and he does it six times---very rapidly. One of the best counters
          for nearly ANY high attack your opponent might be thinking. If he
          happens to anticipate this and sidestep, just continue with the
          rest of the punches to evade any attack he might be thinking of.
          You may tap F after any of these punches to go back into the Snake
          Stance.
                                                                           
       b) Snakebite - 2,2,2
                                                                           
               Two high strikes followed up by a low one. If blocked, the second
          high strike serves as a defense breaker to enable you to more or
          less successfully land the final hit. You may tap F after the first
          two hits to access the Dragon Stance OR after the last hit for the
          Panther Stance
                                                                           
       c) Out of Control - 1+3
                                                                           
               Lei goes into his Dragon Stance, turns around, and again faces
          his opponent as he tries to grab his (opponent's) head. He then
          whirls the opponent's head around to ensure dizziness, let's go,
          and gives the off balanced opponent a double punch to the chest.
          If you tap 1+2 during all that head whirling, Lei will do less damage
          on his double punch, but he will GAIN LIFE and end up in a Drunken
          Stance---cool!
                                                                           
    2) Dragon - U (during Snake Stance)
                                                                           
                description: left leg genuflected; two arms both with closed
                             fists are parallel and pointing towards the
                             opponent to depict the shape of a dragon's mouth
                blocking   : high only
                left punch : identical to the Snake Stance's Out of Control
                             move, may also be followed up with a 1+2 during
                             all that head whirling to do less damage on his
                             double punch, GAIN LIFE, and end up in a Drunken
                             Stance---cool!
                right punch: an uppercut that packs some power and speed, but
                             does not juggle. May be followed up with an F
                             to proceed to the Tiger Stance
                left kick  : identical to the first hit of the High-low Kick,
                             but this time you cannot follow up with the sweep
                right kick : identical to the first hit of the Rush Combo and
                             this time you CAN continue with the said move.
                             May also be ended in two ways if blocked:tap 4
                             to deliver a high kick similar to the first attack
                             you did only this time it does more damage and
                             temporarily stuns the opponent, OR...tap D+4
                             to deliver a sweep that does less damage, but
                             adds a confusing strategy for this move---nice!
                                                                           
       Other moves:
                                                                           
       Dragon Spark - 1+2
                                                                           
            Without losing the cool position of his arms, Lei does a double
       punch to the opponent's chest and midsection to knock him off his feet.
       Good alternative for those already expecting a throw. You can access
       the Tiger Stance by tapping F after executing this move.
                                                                           
    3) Panther - D (during Snake Stance)

                             slightly forward; both arms are suspended forward
                             with half-open hands to mimic a panther's paws
                blocking   : low only
                left punch : both arms are spread wide apart to sweep the opponent
                             in the process
                right punch: similar to the Dragon Stance's right punch. Also
                             comes with power and speed but this time it CAN
                             juggle!
                left kick  : identical to the normal stance's D+3. Tap B afterwards
                             for an instant Phoenix Stance!
                right kick : identical to the first hit of the Beating Kick
                             and CAN be followed up with the trio of midsection
                             punches in case it messes up. May also be ended
                             in two ways: One, tap 4 to deliver a mid kick,
                             and two, tap 3 for a low kick that sweeps.

    4) Tiger - U (during Dragon Stance)
                                                                           
               description: right leg bent slightly downward; left leg bent
                            slightly forward; both arms are horizontally
                            aligned and suspended forward with almost fully-open
                            hands to mimic a tiger's paws
               blocking   : high only
               left punch : an oh so powerful pound that can, but not always,
                            juggle. You have to time it right, otherwise
                            your opponent will just get knocked down. Wondering
                            how a pound became a juggle? Simple: Just like
                            Paul's pound, the opponent's body bounces back
                            up, (unrealistic, but COOL) allowing you to juggle.
               right punch: also an oh so powerful pound that does a liiittle
                            bit more damage than the other one, but cannot
                            juggle. In my opinion, it ain't even worth the
                            try.
               left kick  : similar to the Set-up Kick but this time you
                            can't end it with either 4 or D+4
               right kick : a very quick yet powerful low back kick that
                            can sweep

       Tiger Rush - 3,1,2,1,2
                                                                           
            This move simply stars with the first hit of the Set-up Kick followed
       up by the four midsection punches of the Razor Rush. There are numerous
       ways to end the Razor Rush part, and so I actually placed it in a
       separate section which you'd be reading later on.
                                                                           
    5) Crane - D (during Panther Stance)

                            fists are raised sideways and are pointing at
                            their respective directions; all of which depict
                            the normal stance of a crane
               blocking   : disabled
               left punch : a powerful strike that knocks the opponent off
                            his feet if it connects, but crushes his guars
                            much like the last hit of the Defense Breaker
                            if blocked.
               right punch: a spinning back fist that turns the opponent
                            around and at the same time ends up in a Back
                            Stance
               left kick  : a high forward kick to the face---cool stuffer!
               right kick : a high-damaging low kick that knocks the opponent
                            face down into the ground

       Crane Dance -  3,4,2,3
                                                                           
            A four-hit combo the three kicks of which pack some nice damage.
       The last kick, by the way, is an upward one that CAN juggle. It is
       only advisable to use this move when you knock the opponent down and
       he gets up with a 3 (low spin kick). Just dash back and proceed with
       the combo.
                                                                           
    6) Knockdown - 4,4

                   right kick : similar to the normal stance's D+3, but you aim
                                for the chest instead of the shin
                                                                            
       Other moves:
                                                                            
       Hop up - 3+4
                                                                            
            Lei raises both his legs and uses their weight to carry his entire
       body upward and end up standing. Good counter for people who like to
       rush even when you're down.
                                                                           
    7) Play Dead - D+3+4

       Other moves:
                                                                           
       a) Spring Kick - 3+4
                                                                           
               Undoubtedly Lei's most powerful anti-air, in this move he, from
          a lying down position, shoots both his legs upward and juggle the
          opponent. Sadly, there's not much you can do afterwards since you're
          still lying on the ground after doing this move.
                                                                           
       b) Double Slicer - 3,4
                                                                           
               This move is identical to the Rave Spin, except for the fact
          that you use a 3,4 instead of DB+4,4 code to execute it. Nice to
          mix-up with the Spring Kick to yield victorius results.
                                                                           
    8) Post-slide - Hold D+1 (during Knockdown Stance)

                    left kick  : identical to the normal stance's D+3
                    right kick : similar to the normal stance's D+3, but you
                                 aim for the chest instead of the shin
                                                                            
       Other moves:
                                                                           
       a) Deep Sleep - 3,4
                                                                           
               You "wake up" from your post-slide stance, do a sweep identical
          to the first hit of the Rave Spin, and end up, once again, lying
          on the ground but this time you're in your Play Dead Stance.
                                                                           
       b) Go to Sleep - 4,3
                                                                           
               Identical to the Cartwheel Kick, only you do it from a knockdown
          position, and that just makes it a lot cooler and definitely more
          surprising than the original.
                                                                           
    9) Facedown - D+1+2

                  left kick  : identical to the normal stance's D+3
                  right kick : also identical to the normal stance's D+3
                                                                            
       Other moves:
                                                                            
       Slide Kick - 4,3
                                                                            
            One of the mentioned advantages of Lei, this slide kick does not
       require him to run first. It comes out pretty fast and, also because
       of your current position, is a great surprise move. A good strategy
       would be to do an ordinary sweep (D+3) after it because you end up
       behind your lying opponent. Do it again he gets up repeat the process
       until he thinks of a way out. Finally, if you end up in front of
       him, do an ankle kick for a little more damage.
                                                                           
    10) Drunken - F+3+4

       Staggering Slide - 3+4
                                                                           
            Lei turns around, crouches, and then stretches both legs out to 
       knock the opponent face down into the ground. Ends up in a Post-slide
       Stance.
                                                                           
    11) Back - B+3+4

                            arsenal, this one's a quick, damaging uppercut
                            that launches the opponent in mid-air
               left kick  : a back high kick common to most Tekken characters
               right kick : a back mid kick also common to most Tekken characters
                                                                            
        Other moves:
                                                                           
        a) Low Back Spin - D+1
                                                                           
                Similar to this stance's left punch, but this time you aim
           for the shin instead of the face. This move CAN sweep an opponent
           and since does not go into the normal stance but back to the Back
           Stance instead, may be done repeatedly for a low juggle.
                                                                           
        b) Flit-flip-flop - 3+4
                                                                           
                Lei does a back flip that, like the previous move, since it
           does not go into the normal stance but back to the Back Stance
           instead, may be done repeatedly, especially on a knocked down opponent.
                                                                           
        c) Reverse Double Slicer - D+3,3
                                                                           
                This move is identical to the Rave Spin, except for the fact
          that you use a D+3,3 instead of DB+4,4 code to execute it. Nice
          to mix-up with the uppercut(right punch) to yield victorius results.
                                                                           
    12) Phoenix - B+1+4
                                                                           
                description: left leg raised; right arm raised; left arm in
                             fromt of chest; added note---will last for only
                             about three seconds
                blocking   : disabled
                left punch : disabled
                right punch: disabled
                left kick  : the raised leg kicks high and does not go into
                             the normal stance but back to the Phoenix Stance
                             instead. Sounds like you may do it repeatedly
                             but you can't---only up to four times
                right kick : Lei's CHARGED POWER KICK! Left foot glows, but
                             since he does a move similar to the Crescent
                             Kick, it's his right foot that does the real
                             unblockable damage
                                                                            
       Other moves:

    * Ok, now that you are familiar with Lei's array of fighting stances, you
      should also know that by tapping U or D anytime during the Razor Rush,
      you can get to apply one of these stances. This is Lei's biggest asset
      and is one, big confuser's strategy all by itself! Here's your whole
      list of practical choices:
                                                                           
    First of all, tap F,N,1, then,...
                                                                           
      1) pause - to keep opponent guessing
                                                                           
         a) tap 2 - second Razor Rush punch
                                                                           
            a.1) pause - to keep opponent guessing
                                                                           
            a.2) tap 1 - third Razor Rush punch
                                                                           
                 a.2.1) pause - to keep opponent guessing
                                                                           
                 a.2.2) tap 2 - fourth Razor Rush punch
                                                                           
                        a.2.2.a) pause - to keep opponent guessing
                                                                           
                        a.2.2.b) tap 3 - Razor Rush ender: a low kick that
                                         can sweep at perfect timing
                                                                           
                        a.2.2.c) tap 4 - Razor Rush ender: a high kick that
                                         can be linked to the Crane Stance
                                         if you tap U/D immediately afterwards.
                                         Linking to the Crane Stance yields
                                         two more options: One, wait for the
                                         opponent to stand up and hit him
                                         with a Crane Dance to juggle, or two,
                                         dash forward, wait for him to move
                                         a muscle, and then stomp him with
                                         a right kick!
                                                                           
                        a.2.2.d) tap U/D - Tiger Stance
                                                                           
                                 a.2.2.d.1) Tiger Rush - if the opponent tries
                                                         to counter with a
                                                         high attack or if
                                                         he did not expect
                                                         your sudden stance
                                                         switch and did nothing
                                                         but block high. Repeat
                                                         the whole process.
                                                                           
                                 a.2.2.d.2) left punch - if your opponent
                                                         suspects something
                                                         else and blocks low.
                                                         Juggle afterwards.
                                                                           
                                 a.2.2.d.3) right kick - like the Tiger Rush
                                                         do this only if the
                                                         opponent tries to
                                                         counter with a high
                                                         attack or if he did
                                                         not expect your sudden
                                                         stance switch and
                                                         did nothing but block
                                                         high.
                        a.2.2.e) Dragon Falls - the most damaging yet easy-to-access
                                                throw. Only if the opponent
                                                blocks high.
                                                                           
                                                                           
                 a.2.3) tap U/D - Panther Stance
                                                                           
                        a.2.3.a) left punch - if the opponent did not expect
                                              your sudden stance switch and
                                              did nothing but block high.
                                                                           
                        a.2.3.b) right punch - if your opponent suspects something
                                               else and blocks low. Juggle
                                               afterwards.
                                                                           
                        a.2.3.c) right kick - if your stance switching evaded
                                              an opponent's attack and he's
                                              wide open. Follow up with the
                                              succeeding moves and enders
                                              of the Beating Kick.
                                                                           
                                                                           
                 a.2.4) Dragon Falls - the most damaging yet easy-to-access
                                       throw. Only if the opponent blocks
                                       high.
                                                                           
                                                                           
            a.3) tap U/D - Dragon Stance
                                                                           
                 a.3.1) left punch - if the opponent did not expect your sudden
                                     stance switch and did nothing but block
                                     high. Hit 1+2 to deal less damage but
                                     GAIN LIFE in return.
                                                                           
                 a.3.2) right kick - like the left punch, do this only if
                                     the opponent did not expect your sudden
                                     stance switch and did nothing but block
                                     high. Continue with the Rush Combo and
                                     end it as you see fit.
                                                                           
                 a.3.3) Dragon Spark - good for most opponents who more or
                                       less already expect you to execute
                                       your life-gaining throw and tries to
                                       throw you.

            b.1) Rushing Snake - if the opponent tries to counter with a high
                                 attack
                                                                           
            b.2) Snake Bite - if the opponent did not expect your sudden stance
                              switch and did nothing but block high
                                                                           
            b.3) right punch - if your stance switching evaded an opponent's
                               attack and he's wide open. Stuns the opponent
                               so juggle afterwards.
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
      2) tap 2 - second Razor Rush punch
                                                                           
         a) pause - to keep opponent guessing

                 b.2.1) pause - to keep opponent guessing
                                                                           
                 b.2.2) tap 3 - Razor Rush ender: a low kick that can sweep

                 b.2.3) tap 4 - Razor Rush ender: a high kick that can be
                                linked to the Crane Stance if you tap U/D
                                immediately afterwards. Linking to the Crane
                                Stance yields two more options: One, wait
                                for the opponent to stand up and hit him
                                with a Crane Dance to juggle, or two, dash
                                forward, wait for him to move a muscle, and
                                then stomp him with a right kick!
                                                                           
                 b.2.4) tap U/D - Tiger Stance
                                                                           
                        b.2.4.a) Tiger Rush - if the opponent tries to counter
                                              with a high attack or if he
                                              did not expect your sudden stance
                                              switch and did nothing but block
                                              high. Repeat the whole process.
                                                                           
                        b.2.4.b) left punch - if your opponent suspects something
                                              else and blocks low. Juggle
                                              afterwards.
                                                                           
                        b.2.4.c) right kick - like the Tiger Rush do this
                                              only if the opponent tries to
                                              counter with a high attack or
                                              if he did not expect your sudden
                                              stance switch and did nothing
                                              but block high.
                                                                           
                 b.2.5) Dragon Falls - the most damaging yet easy-to-access
                                       throw. Only if the opponent blocks
                                       high.
                                                                           
                                                                           
            b.3) tap U/D - Panther Stance
                                                                           
                 b.3.1) left punch - if the opponent did not expect your sudden
                                     stance switch and did nothing but block
                                     high.
                                                                           
                 b.3.2) right punch - if your opponent suspects something
                                      else and blocks low. Juggle afterwards.
                                                                           
                 b.3.3) right kick - if your stance switching evaded an opponent's
                                     attack and he's wide open. Follow up
                                     with the succeeding moves and enders
                                     of the Beating Kick.
                                                                           
                                                                           
            b.4) Dragon Falls - the most damaging yet easy-to-access throw.

         c) tap U/D - Dragon Stance
                                                                           
            c.1) left punch - if the opponent did not expect your sudden
                              stance switch and did nothing but block high.
                              Hit 1+2 to deal less damage but GAIN LIFE in
                              return.
                                                                           
            c.2) right kick - like the left punch, do this only if the opponent
                              did not expect your sudden stance switch and
                              did nothing but block high. Continue with the
                              Rush Combo and end it as you see fit.
                                                                           
            c.3) Dragon Spark - good for most opponents who more or less already
                                expect you to execute your life-gaining throw
                                and tries to throw you.
                                                                           
                                                                           
         d) Dragon Falls - the most damaging yet easy-to-access throw. Only
                           if the opponent blocks high.
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
      3) tap U/D - Snake Stance
                                                                           
         a) Rushing Snake - if the opponent tries to counter with a high
                            attack
                                                                           
         b) Snake Bite - if the opponent did not expect your sudden stance
                         switch and did nothing but block high
                                                                           
         c) right punch - if your stance switching evaded an opponent's attack
                          and he's wide open. Stuns the opponent so juggle
                          afterwards.
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
      4) Dragon Falls - the most damaging yet easy-to-access throw. Only if
                        the opponent blocks high.

    * Lei's only true ten-hit combo (as far as I know) is:
      Crane Dance-> 1-> Rush Combo-> 4
                                                                           
    * His other ten-hit combos all include a backflip which is the dam weakest
      link I've ever seen in a combo. Any average player can just attack with
      almost anything he's got while your busy turning your back on him.
      You still wanna know? Ok...
                                                                           
    1) 1,2,1,3+4,2,1,4,1,4,4
                                                                           
            The 2 after the 3+4 part is extremely hard to connect because
       of it's short range. The ninth and tenth hit are identical to the Rave
       Spin coupled with a 4. Cancell the tenth hit into the other possible
       ending (juggles) for the Rave Spin to deal more damage.
                                                                           
    2) 1,2,1,3+4,2,1,4,1,2,3
                                                                           
            Just like the first one, but you finish only with the second part
       of the Rave Spin. The 2 after the 3+4 part is still extremely hard
       to connect.
                                                                           
    3) 1,2,1,3+4,3+4,3+4,1,1,2
                                                                           
            Dammit, three backflips!? This should have been the best ten,
       I mean nine-hit combo in Lei's arsenal since it ends with an uppercut
       that launches the opponent but, again because of the backflip, sucks.
                                                                           
                                                                           
    * As you probably have guessed by now, the 3+4 part is the accursed backflip.
      What you can do is stop thinking ten-hit after you do the 1,2,1 and
      do any of your other Back Stance moves like, say, the Reverse Double
      Slicer or maybe a simple throw just to keep him guessing.
                                                                           
    * But if you really think the second half of these ten-hitters deserve
      some recognition, you can try executing the first half while your opponent
      is either down or far away. By the time you're through with the backflip/s,
      you'd be near enough to connect the second half of the combo and apply
      your own strategies to it.

      A. launchers (these are also listed in my moves section)
                                                                          
       1) DF+2 = Controlled Uppercut
                                                                           
                This is, of course, the weakest of the launchers as it is
          composed of only one hit. It is, however, the most efficient of
          the three for exactly the same reason.
                                                                           
       2) UF+4 = Hop to Upward Kick
                                                                           
                Comes out faster, does more damage, and even hurls the opponent
          higher in mid-air. With this move at your disposal, you may be asking,
          "Why the hell would I need the previous launcher!?" and the answer
          is recovery. This move, when blocked or sidestepped from, makes
          you wide open for many, many things while the former doesn't.
                                                                           
       3) DB+4 = Sweep
                                                                           
                A sweep!? yep! Why? cause it launches your opponent a liiittle
          bit in mid-air before he lands, giving you enough time to whip up
          something other than tapping 4 to deal more damage.
                                                                           
       4) (Back Stance) 2 = Berserk Uppercut
                                                                           
                Would have been more efficient than the controlled uppercut
          but is not because of the need to turn around before execution.
          Still worth the try since there are many things an opponent can
          expect when he's facing your back and this move is not one of the
          most common.
                                                                           
       5) (Back Stance) D+1 = Arm Sweep
                                                                           
                Again, another sweep that launches your opponent a liiittle
          bit in mid-air before he lands, giving you enough time to whip up
          something other than tapping 4 to deal more damage.
                                                                           
       6) (Panther Stance) 2 = Precision Uppercut
                                                                           
                The kind of uppercut that makes Lei look like a pro(and he is,
          'mind you). Has the ability to launch an opponent in a quite respectable
          height. Packs some power too.
                                                                           
       7) (Tiger Stance) 1 = Power Pound
                                                                           
                I've said it before, I'll say it again: This move can, but
          not always, juggle. You have to time it right, otherwise your opponent
          will just get knocked down. Wondering how a pound became a juggle? 
          Simple: Just like Paul's pound, the opponent's body bounces back
          up, (unrealistic, but COOL) allowing you to juggle.
                                                                           
       8) (Crane Stance) 3,4,2,3 = Awkward Combo to High Kick
                                                                           
                Doesn't launch the opponent as high as the other juggle starters
           ('cept for the sweeps, of course!) but still a good move to try
           since it's an easy four-hitter and you haven't even started juggling
           yet!

       1) for all launchers except the sweeps

       2) for launcher 7

    1) D+1+3 / D+2+4 - Low Parry
                                                                           
            This is, in my opinion, the BEST counter attack in all of Tekken!
       It gives you way much free time than any other player's high parry,
       and it can't be countered like the normal reversal. Always, and I mean
       ALWAYS follow this move up with a UF+4 and a corresponding juggle
       as that is the only sound way of making up for the zero% damage the
       low parry brings.
                                                                           
    2) F+3+4 - Drunken Stance (punch parry)
                                                                           
            I just hate this move. It gives you just about one-tenth of a
       second's free time to punish the opponent, and that's just about the
       same amount of time he needs to crouch. To be safe, a D+4 followed
       up by a while-standing 4 would suffice but, if you'd like to risk it,
       a throw or a UF+4 to juggle would deal much more damage.
                                                                           
    3) F+1+3 / F+2+4 - Reversal Counter
                                                                           
            You use the F+1+3 if the attack that your opponent reversed was
       either a 1 or a 3. On the other hand, use the F+2+4 is the attack your
       opponent reversed was either a 2 or a 4.

    * These are NOT 100% applicable in all cases. But it's safe to say that
      if you follow my guidelines, you'll always win. Actually, it's kinda
      boring to play against the computer. You don't have a solid ending or
      even a rating to get inspired on, just a time record---yawn.
                                                                           
    1) The Rave Spin is your main weapon against the computer. Always use
       it, and the juggles that follow, as an opening move. This is also
       especially helpful whenever you're opponent is far and running towards
       you.
                                                                           
    2) The Rolling Kicks is also a move that's effective even for the computer-
       controlled opponent. Even if he blocks it, he won't be doing anything
       that you can't side roll from.
                                                                           
    3) Computer opponents never quit in the middle of a combo. Either they
       use only the first three hits, or finish the whole thing. Counter as
       you see fit.
                                                                           
    4) Whenever you're down, do an ankle kick followed by a 2 then juggle.
       It never fails...
                                                                           
    5) Run towrads the opponent and deliver a flying kick (3). If it doesn't
       connect, follow it up with a Rave Spin. Never fails either...

    Well, there won't be any universal rules for fighting against humans cause
    no two humans think identically. There are, however, general rules that
    could apply to at most 80% of your encounters with human challengers
                                                                           
    1) Mix everything up, especially your opening moves. Good opening moves
       would include a sidestep to Rave Spin, back dash to UF+4 or any other
       effective juggle starter, instant Razor Rush with its many enders,
       or forward dash to Dragon Falls.
                                                                           
    2) Your ten-hit combos, whether blocked or not, have a very slim chance
       of being completed, especially if your opponent has a parry or a reversal.
       When this happens, usually your third hit is the one countered so quit
       after your second blocked hit and throw him. (yes, you CAN throw while
       your back is turned!)
                                                                           
    3) If your opponent gets knocked down and does a 3d roll, most likely he'll
       sweep as he gets up so anticipate with a low parry to juggle.
                                                                           
    4) If you are unsuccessful with a juggle launcher, you'll be wide open so
       might as well gamble with an UF+4 since this is the fastest emergency
       move Lei can do.
                                                                           
    5) Enter the Phoenix Stance and do nothing until you revert to the normal
       stance. Do another Phoenix Stance and again make it seem useless. Do
       third one and this time tap 4. POW! he's out cold. (will work only
       if you're far from the opponent and he tries to get in close; estimate
       your distance and make sure it connects)
                                                                           
    6) Know your opponent's size. Large men are hard to juggle with a UF+4.
       If you resort to the Spring Kick, however, you can pull off more hits
       than usual (two DF+LPs instead of a single LP)
                                                                           
    7) Character-specific strategies:
                                                                           
    Anna Williams - few people use this babe nowadays, probably because her
                    sis, Nina, besides being a tougher babe to catch, can
                    match her every combo and many would agree that hers
                    (Nina's) are a lot easier to pull off. One thing that
                    Anna has that her sis doesn't is a low super, but you
                    can easily detect that. Fight her as you would a Nina
                    player, expecting a good number of low to high pokes and
                    sudden while-standing juggle starters to come your way.
                    Just dash back to catch a breath of fresh air and get
                    ready to rumble!
                                                                           
    Bryan Fury - you can't go through a round playing against a good Bryan
                 player without your face turning sour at least twice during
                 the game. That's cause most his moves wreck HAVOC, not to
                 mention giving you a good stun on a counter hit, which in
                 turn gives room for MORE havoc-wrecking! You can try parrying
                 his blows, as they all have initial movements invloved (eg. his
                 forward power punch requires a F,F dash, his power pound
                 requires a backward crouch, his power sweep needs a low spin
                 before it materializes, etc.) or, you can try blocking them
                 all and punishing them with Rave Spin combos.
                                                                           
    Eddy Gordo/Tiger - no matter what anyone else says, these cool dudes fight
                       practically the same way. There are only two kinds
                       of Eddy/Tiger users, and you've probably guessed them
                       by now---the MASHER and the EXPERT. There's just no
                       in-between. Either you see an Eddy or a Tiger bombarding
                       you with tons of out-o-nowhere kicks then you look
                       at your opponent's fingers and all they do are alternately
                       hit the kick buttons, OR you encounter an opponent
                       who DOESN'T move at all! He'll wait till you attack
                       and choose from a wide variety of knock-down moves
                       to keep you lying flat on your back no matter how you
                       try to escape. First, let's deal with the masher. For
                       some reason, he'll be less efficient in Tiger's shoes,
                       but that doesn't matter. Concentrate on low-parrying
                       his "break dances" which are usually composed of four
                       consecutive low swinging kicks, and follow-up with
                       your favorite juggle to guarantee you coming out victorious.
                       Still ain't used to parrying? Try interrupting his
                       four-hit combos with the Razor Rush---it works! On
                       the other hand, the expert should be treated with
                       much caution, as he too can suddenly opt to turn into
                       a masher and KO you by surprise. But, normally, he'll
                       concentrate on one-hitters that'd knock you off your
                       feet. Counter with a Spring Kick (from Play Dead Stance)
                       and follow-up yet again with your favorite juggle.
                       If he's successful, always use the sideroll as that
                       gives him the least ways of hitting you again.
                                                                           
    Forest Law - this will be one big mix-up game. Study the different ways
                 with which your opponent reacts to your every move, and
                 chances are, he has a pattern. On the other hand, he may be
                 doing the same thing on you so don't give him a hint on
                 whatever style of play you have, just make it look like you're
                 diong things at random. Eventually he'll get confused and
                 succumb to his fate---KO!
                                                                           
    Gun Jack - he's big, but you're smarter. He's strong, but your faster.
               He does a heap of damage with his moves, but yours will connect
               a hundred times before one of his does. You'd probably already
               have the upperhand by now, cause Gun Jack users just don't
               have what it takes to even give me a headache. If ever a good
               strategy for playing as Gun Jack already exists, I've yet to
               encounter it. As of now, I consider him weak despite his strength,
               and an insignificant nuisance despite his great potential to
               become a fierce fighter.
                                                                           
    Heihachi Mishima - the master juggler (no, he ain't no clown, dammit!)
                       and, like I said, my second favorite character. If
                       he blocks one of your juggle starters, it's almost
                       all over for you cause his double uppercut has almost
                       zero execution time. But that goes for him too---if
                       you block both uppercuts you can also retaliate with
                       an UF+4 to juggle and he won't be able to escape. Keep
                       those in mind and generally just try to anticipate
                       everything. He also has a very good high-low mix-up
                       strategy (I'm talkin' Hell Sweeps here) that spells
                       pain even if only one of his moves connect. Just jab
                       a lot to prevent this and proceed with while-standing
                       right kicks for a confusing game of your own.
                                                                           
    Hwoarang - most people playing against a Hwoarang user would just block
               all day, wait for an open spot, and retaliate. This does work
               on average Hwoarang players, but the more expert ones will
               not give you a chance to hit them once you've blocked their
               first attack. Sometimes they'll give you a fake open spot
               and when you fall for it, BAM! you're knocked out cold. Most
               of you may also think of defending yourselves solely against
               kicks but then again even the near-expert Hwoarang player would
               know how to use his punches effectively---as POKERS. Whenever
               his kicks are too strong to recover quickly, he'll anticipate
               you to retaliate and so he'll quickly throw a jab to shut you
               up. Wrong move on your part. The trick is to fake a Play Dead
               stance on him and hit him with a Spring Kick even BEFORE his
               kick lands on your face. It's a big risk, but it's definitely
               better than just blocking all day.
                                                                           
    Jin Kazama - he is the son of Kazuya Mishima and Jun Kazama, and expectedly
                 would acquire considerable knowledge on the moves of both.
                 He has his father's uppercuts and his mothers little four-hitters,
                 plus some moves of his own and the ability to reverse an
                 attack. His main weapon, however, is that three-hit electric
                 punch combo that's lethal if connected on a counter hit.
                 A good strategy would be to use your Drunken Stance as a
                 punch parry on his SECOND blow because 90% of Jin users expect
                 a counter on their third punch and not their second. Most
                 Jin users are probably planning to fake their third punch
                 and throw you instead, but never their second punch. If,
                 on a rare occasion, you fail and parry nothing, just gamble
                 with a Staggering Slide.
                                                                           
    Julia Chang - most people (including me, once) find her tough to defeat
                  simply because few know even the basics of how to use her
                  effectively. She ALWAYS mixes up high and low attacks to
                  catch her unsuspecting victims off-guard and connect a
                  juggle starter. You'd be surprised, but my advice in dealing
                  with this seemingly little girl is to keep some distance
                  from her and attack from that distance. And don't get intimidated
                  by those juggles that compose of tons of elbows. They (the
                  elbows) do even less damage than a normal jab!
                                                                           
    King - the Tekken 2 version of this guy was just fine, but now? cheap!
           He's been given too much advantages that it would take an above
           average player using another character to beat the crap out of
           an average player using him. I mean, besides a set of common moves
           that can already provide an opponent a good challenge, he also
           has linkable throws, anti-crouch throws, anti-ground throws, a
           tenstring that ends in a throw, an irreversible reversal, multiple
           slide kicks that are inescapable at certain situations, a leaping
           pound, unblockables that don't need charge-up, and a boomerang
           kick that does WAY too much damage for a single, quick, and side-stepping
           move! Be especially alert for the last move I mentioned, as it
           has the ability to turn the tables just when you thought the match
           was yours. Remember to duck whenever he sidesteps at a range beyond
           the normal one cause he's sure to attack high afterwards. Expect
           lots of mix-ups, and do not hesitate to execute a Razor Rush to
           any of its enders whenever he does a crouching dash cause that's
           his way of setting up a throw.
                                                                           
    Kuma/Panda - no matter what anyone else says, these cool bears fight practically
                 the same way. They'll claw and bite you to death, rarely,
                 if ever, making use of their legs. I could compare them to
                 Gun Jack, but their attacks come out quicker despite dealing
                 close, if not equal, amount of damage. Beware of their great
                 big uppercuts, their super claw attack that can turn into
                 a rolling unblockable if you're out of range, and their
                 farts(yes, FARTS!) that can *choke* knock you out with a
                 single sniff. Ahh, don't worry. The reason I told you to
                 be alert on their farts is so you can retaliate with the
                 most damaging move in your arsenal. It really is easy to
                 avoid this move, which is ultra short-ranged. What you need
                 to know is how to seize the opportunity to deliver a Charge
                 Power Kick (from Phoenix Stance)---just wait for them to
                 fully crouch then do it. You'll throw the kick one moment
                 after they finish doing their thing---POW! perfect timing!
                                                                           
    Lei Wulong - can't say anything special with this officer, since he'll
                 fight like you do, being a good confuser and all that. Treat
                 him like you would a Law player. Study the different ways
                 with which your opponent reacts to your every move, and
                 chances are, he has a pattern. On the other hand, he may be
                 doing the same thing on you so don't give him a hint on
                 whatever style of play you have, just make it look like you're
                 diong things at random. Eventually he'll get confused and
                 succumb to his fate---KO!
                                                                           
    Ling Xiaoyu - she's got lots o' high launchers, but they all do negligible
                  damage. Still, be wary of these little things that make
                  her what she is---a pest. They may be weak, but if you're
                  constantly caught in them, you'd definitely lose, and it
                  isn't very hard get in that problem in case you're wondering.
                  Also to be taken under consideration are her one-hit strikes
                  that surprisingly deal respectable damage and her stances
                  that surprisingly evade most attacks. Be cool and calculating,
                  don't rush right away, and punish her every stance with a
                  Rave Spin combo and you'll be fine.
                                                                           
    Mokujin - anyone who uses Mokujin must be mighty confident of his ability
              to identify a character just by the way he stands. Otherwise,
              he'll be someone who knew nothing about Tekken and fell victim
              to Mokujin's wacky nature. Yet contrary to everyone else's
              opinion, choosing Mokujin has its advanatges. For starters,
              if you can't identify a character by his stance, you'll be an
              unsuspecting victim for his moves. Second, your opponent can
              research on your style while you can't do the same for him.
              Lastly, characters smaller than Mokujin would have an advantage
              of range and in the same sense characters slower will experience
              a slight boost in speed. Anyway, he'll probably use some general
              tactic so find out what that is and counter as you see fit.
                                                                           
    Nina Williams - well, she had quite an introduction when I commented on
                    her sis, Anna, and I'll say it again: She match her sis'
                    every combo and many would agree that hers are a lot easier
                    to pull off. Watch out for sudden upward roundhouses
                    and bone-breaking throws and you'll be fine. If she uses
                    a confuser's poking strategy with you, you'll have to options:
                    One, predict a low attack, parry, and link to an UF+4 and
                    your favorite juggle, OR two, skip the low parry part
                    and interrupt her moves with an UF+4---riskier if blocked,
                    but a lot more effective and rewarding if not.
                                                                           
    Ogre - he is, in my opinion, just a combination of the moves of Tekken 2's
           sub-bosses like Baek and his triple low to high kick, Lee and
           his infinity kicks, Heihachi and his axe kick, Kuma's throws, etc,
           etc, etc. BUT this is not what expert Ogre users tend to abuse
           to ensure their victories. Rather, they make use of his short-
           range yet fast moving unblockables that are quite lethal if included
           in a confuser's strategy. Good news is, these unblockables make
           the attacking part of his body glow first, giving you enough time
           to escape with the first way that pops into your mind, whatever
           that is. Don't think any longer than you have cause if you do,
           the unblockable shall have already connected.
                                                                           
    Paul Phoenix - you'd think the only thing he could win is a brawl, but
                   didn't you notice the black belt around his waist? Means
                   he's an expert! And got lotsa high-level karate and judo
                   stuff to make a newbie cry. BUT that also doesn't mean
                   he can't win---BRAWL style! He's the best of both worlds,
                   so to speak, and there are two types of Paul users: One
                   that would finish you off with moves that revolve around
                   the pound, the sweep, the elbow, and, of course, the power
                   punch. Treat this Paul with much anticipation, and keep
                   your eye on HIS body, not yours. Just do your move and
                   do not worry about how Lei does it, just worry about how
                   Paul will react. For the second type, constantly dash forward
                   and back to lure him into starting a juggle, usually with
                   a kick for a launcher, that has a generally slow recovery,
                   giving you enough time to start a juggle of your own.
                                                                           
    True Ogre - King may be too advantaged and considered cheap, but this...
                creature redefines the term! He's got a flame-thrower of a
                mouth, and for a game that doesn't contain projectiles of
                any sort, this is too much! Good thing is, upon practice and
                experience, you can learn to detect when he's gonna burp and
                duck if its from the ground and sidestep if its air-borne.
                Another cheap tactic he has would be a teleport into mid-air
                WHILE he's lying on the ground! And that's not all, after
                the teleport he'll swoop down on you with his UNBLOCKABLE
                horns. The solution? duck, that is, IF you detect it. Lastly,
                like Ogre, he has tons of unblockables that you simply must
                get used to so you could, in time, detect them like second
                nature. Take note that unlike Ogre, his unblockables have
                insane range, and are inescapable unless you counter, preferably
                with a Razor Rush.
                                                                           
    Yoshimitsu - not really a threat, unless he lures you into a Shark Attack
                 that does a heap o' damage! His powerful roundhouses can
                 easily be ducked from and punished with a Low Punch to
                 Back Flip, but, if he makes full use of everybody's DF+2
                 uppercut to catch you in some powerful juggles, beware
                 and play a counter attacker's game on him. Keep an eye out
                 for his sword, and immediately give him a Cannonball if he
                 tries to do something with it. He may try to chip away with
                 tons of low spinning attacks with you should always be ready
                 to low parry and follow-up with a juggle.

    Dr. Boskconovitch - he'll fight much like you whenever he's in one of his
                        ground stances, but like someone else when he's up
                        standing (ok, maybe crouching). He's a fairly easy
                        character to defeat, just don't underestimate him
                        and try to find out what moves he can pull off like
                        Heihachi's uppercuts, Law's flips, King's leg throws,
                        etc, etc, etc. Also keep an eye out for epileptic
                        seizures (!) cause that's when you run in for the
                        flying or slide kick.
                                                                           
    Gon - Haha! This guy sure is a good laugh, whether you've seen him before
          or not. But, seriously, he can be a major pain at the hands of a
          masher cause if he starts spinning his tail, which by the way can't
          be low parried, you can't do anything but block. Wait for him to
          push you a little bit away with that spinning tail, dash back,
          and counter him with a Razor Rush the next time he tries to pull-off
          the same strategy on you. At the hands of an expert, he'll be using
          a cheappy projectile so always have a handy sidestep ready just
          in case.

    We see Lei honing his skills on a mountaintop by keeping a bowl of some
    sort from dropping to the ground while executing his different moves.
    Then we are shown with a another, snowy scene featuring Lei trying to
    stance-switch his way through a series of bamboo poles in a straight
    line. Finally, it's summer(or autumn?) and he's practing with a sword.
    Then we see the sword hurled carelessly in mid-air. Lei thinks he needs
    some rest and goes to sleep at a buddha statue.

    Did you know how useful the Play Dead Stance could be? Until recently
    have I thought that the only reason to do it is to get to the Spring
    Kick (3+4) and that seems pretty useless since the opponent can see it
    from a mile away. I also tried mixing it up with the Double Slicer (3,4)
    but my opponents just keep on anticipating whatever I do from this stance.
    Then I learned that the trick is to ALWAYS do the Play Dead and follow
    up with a randomly chosen move! This means that whether your attack was
    blocked or evaded from prepare to re-execute the code for the Play Dead
    since nine out of ten chances are your opponent's gonna strike back, and
    strike high. THEN do the spring kick and follow up with your favorite
    juggle---cool!

    ||     emotional ones, such as experiencing humiliation upon the use or          ||
    ||     most likely misuse of yet another technique found in this faq.            ||
    ||                                                                               ||
    ||  2) If this faq was accessed from a source other than gamefaqs.com, nine      ||

    ||  3) This faq is not to be profited from---directly, indirectly, or in         ||
    ||     whatever other way possible. By directly I mean earning less than,        ||
    ||     equal to, or greater than a cent's worth in cash, items, or services      ||
    ||     in exchange for part of or all the contents of this faq. On the           ||
    ||     other hand, by indirectly I mean using a part of or all the contents      ||
    ||     of this faq as a convincing factor for the purchase of another product    ||
    ||     thus directly or again indirectly yielding profit.                        ||

    ||  4) You will not use even a single phrase, sentence, or concept found         ||
    ||     anywhere in this faq on your own work, even if you expressed it in        ||
    ||     your own words, without at the very least giving me, Joseph Christopher,  ||
    ||     the author of this faq, full credit for it. If you in any way             ||
    ||     incorporated even a very minute part of the strategies found in this      ||
    ||     faq with your own in your work, then you must at the very least give      ||
    ||     me partial credit for it.                                                 ||
    ||                                                                               ||
    ||  5) Ignorance of the law excuses no one, therefore if ever anything           ||
    ||     unlawful is done to this faq and/or to me, its author, the appropriate    ||
    ||     legal actions will be taken. If at any point you disagree to this         ||
    ||     or any of the above statements, delete this faq immediately and discard   ||
