    I. Introduction
    ---------------
    
    This is a list of all the character DeathBlows and Abilities that can be learned 
    in the game.  This FAQ also provides a brief list of the "Special Options" 
    available to the various Gears in the game.  This is NOT designed to be a 
    walkthrough of any sort, so please refer to another FAQ if that's what you're 
    looking for.  This FAQ may be used on your own site, as long as it isn't for any 
    commercial purposes and as long as you write me and ask permission first.  Ok?  
    Good.. enjoy the FAQ!  If you have any questions or otherwise, you can E-mail me 
    at [LightRanma@aol.com].

    III. Chatacter DeathBlows
    ------------------------------
    
    Legend:
    
    T= Triangle Button (Weak attack)
    S= Square Button (Medium attack) 
    X= X Button (Fierce Attack)
    
    NOTE: Some DeathBlows can only be learned when you have 7 AP available per turn.  
    In this FAQ, these DeathBlows have the words "7 AP" in their descriptions.  From 
    what I can remember, your characters get 7 AP available after the Generator 
    Battles in Shevat.
    NOTE: Some DeathBlows, even when at 100% learned, will only be available when a 
    character reaches a certain level.  For example, Fei can learn "Kokei" early in 
    the game, but can't actually use it until he gets to Level 70.
