1. INTRODUCTION
______________________________________________________________________________

 Hello everybody! Welcome to my ovelist for Rogue. I've decided to make a
movelist, where I list all the moves' (not just the specials and supers,
all the moves) names and how much damage they take, and I also describe the
supers, specials and throws, and when to use them. And I list my homemade
combos at the end too. I won't write anything about the game's system or
control. Look in the manual or you can just look in GalFord's good FAQ at
GameFAQs.

NOTE: Thanks to GalFord for the two movenames I couldn't find by myself.

2. ABOUT ROGUE
______________________________________________________________________________

 I've chosen to write about Rogue because I find her to be the coolest and
hottest X-(wo)man. For all of you who aren't familiar with the X-Men
world, I'll tell you a little about Rogue. She's a young mutant with
a very special power: when she touches another human with her bare skin
she absorbs that person's memories and feelings, the person who she touches
usually falls in a deep coma. When she touches another mutant she gets
his or her powers. During an encounter with Ms Marvel, Rogue touched
her and acquired Ms Marvel's superpowers, including flight ability,
superhuman strength and almost complete invulnerability.

Rogue in Mutant Academy 2
 In the game she is one of the fastest characters. If you're an aggressive
player you should definitely play with her. And her ability to steal
another character's move, makes her full of variety.

Her costumes:
1st (choose her by pressing X): Looks kind of like her normal X-Men
costume, darkgreen tight bodysuit with an yellow X over her chest.
2nd (choose her by pressing O): Just like her first but it's blue
instead of green.
3rd (choose her by holding R1 and pressing X after you've completed
Academy Mode): It's called Spacesuit in Cerebro, a (surprise, surprise)
tight pink bodysuit. It looks quite unlike the first 2 costumes
and her hair is different.
4th (can only be seen if you play Versus mode on the hidden course
Pool Party): A green bathing-suit with a deep cleavage.

Back to Earth                           S+X or L2                 15

then slams him down to earth with an overhead punch.

up in the air and smacks his face with a knockout-punch when he comes
falling down.

Toss Away                               b+S+X or b+L2             5+5+7
DESCRIPTION: Rouge gives the opponent a painful looking three-punch
combo that sends him flying to the end of the screen.


SPECIALS
Jaw Splitter                            QCF+S                     8
DESCRIPTION: Rogue does a rising uppercut, that knocks the opponent
off his feet. It's not a launcher like Jaw Splitter 2 and 3 but it can still
be useful as a quick attack.

Jaw Splitter 2 *LAUNCHER*               QCF+T                     10
DESCRIPTION: Same as the first, except being slightly more powerful
and it's also a small launcher.

Jaw Splitter 3 *LAUNCHER*               QCF+S+T or QCF+R1         11
DESCRIPTION: As you might've guess it's the same one as the first
two. And also, this move is one of the best launchers in the game.

Skyscraper Dive                         d+S in mid air            7
DESCRIPTION: Rogue dives to the ground fist first.

Skyscraper Dive 2                       d+T in mid air            8
DESCRIPTION: The same as the first one, only more powerful.

Skyscraper Dive 3                       d+S+T or d+R1 in midair   10
DESCRIPTION: The same as the first two, only more powerful.

Air Jaw Splitter                        df+S while flying         8
DESCRIPTION: It looks exactly the same as the usual Jaw Splitter.

Air Jaw Splitter 2                      df+T while flying         10
DESCRIPTION: It looks just like Jaw Splitter 2, but since you're
flying you don't get the launcher.

Air Jaw Splitter 3                  df+T+S or df+R1 while flying  11
DESCRIPTION: It looks just like Jaw Splitter 3, but since you're
flying you don't get the launcher.

Southern Charm                          QCF+O                    4+4+4+4
DESCRIPTION: This is a throw so you have to be pretty close. Rogue draws
the opponent towards herself with one hand and kisses him (or her),
draining his energy. She also copies a move that you can use with the
Absorbed Ability move.

Absorbed Ability                        QCB+S                 it depends
DESCRIPTION: The move you get when you use Southern Charm depends on
which character you kiss. I've listed all the moves you get here, complete
with movename and description, but I don't know how much damage they
all take. In training mode you only meet Cyclops so you can't see how
much the other characters copied moves takes.

CYCLOPS: Beam Bolt, Rogue shoots a ray of lasers from her eyes.

WOLVERINE: Rapid Regeneration, Rogue gets a small amount of energy back
but she can only do it once per round.

GAMBIT: Charged Hands, Rogue's hands start to glow with the same purple lights
as Gambit's cards, but I really don't know what happens. Maybe her attackpower
gets higher.

STORM: Electric Drill, Rogue gets surrounded by lightning as she flies
spinning towards the opponent.

PHOENIX: Earth Flare, Rogue stomps up a small fireball that glides on the
ground towards the opponent.

BEAST: Handspring Kick, Rogue does a forward flip kicking the opponent.

TOAD: Venemous Spew, Rogue spits up some strange green goo (can't
blame her after kissing that ugly thing).

MYSTIQUE: DDT *THROW*, Rogue grabs the opponent then spins to his back
and slams him to the ground.

SABRETOOTH: Ill-treatment *THROW*, Rogue throws the opponent into the air,
jumps after him, grabs him in midair and then brings him down to the ground
with his back over her knee. Oww, sounds painful!

MAGNETO: Magnetic Lure, Rogue lures some iron things to her that hits
the opponent on his back.

HAVOK: Pulsation Blast, Rogue shoots a plasma-beam from her fist.

NIGHTCRAWLER: Bamf, Rouge teleports herself with a small explosion.

FORGE: What is This? *THROW*, Rogue flies up in the sky leaving a mine with
the opponent on the ground. He turns around after a little while, but too
late... KABOOM!!!

ROGUE: Dash Punch, Rogue does a usual dashing punch.

PSYLOCKE: Telepathic Shock *THROW*, Rogue jumps up on the opponent using him
as a springboard, does a backflip in the air then levitates in front of him
while shocking his head with psychic powers. Looks cool!

JUGGERNAUT: Rushing Power Bomb, Rogue gets a blue shine in her fist and does
a dashing punch.

SPIDER-MAN: Flic-Flac 2: Rogue turns around and does 2 backflip towards the
opponent.


SUPERS
Energy Drain                        QCF+X+O or QCF+R2           3+4+4+10
DESCRIPTION: Rogue grabs the opponent's shoulders and flies up in the air
where she kisses him/her and drains his/her energy. Meanwhile the screen gets
whiter and whiter, and when it's all white you hear the sound of a punch
and your opponent hits the ground. This attack uses up the super-bar.

KO Blow                             QCF+S+T or QCF+R1 in midair   25
DESCRIPTION: Rogue does a horizontal flying fist. A suberb air-combo finisher.
Uses up the super-bar.

Bone Breaking Blows                 b,f+S+T or b,f+R1       8-18+5+5+4+3
DESCRIPTION: Rogue punches the opponent five times. This attack uses up the
SMI-bar. When you do the attack arrows will start blinking on the bottom
of the screen. Push the directional-buttons in the correct order to
increase the first hit's damage. If you don't succeed with any arrow,
your first hit will only take 8, but if you succeed with all five, you'll
give 18 in damage on the first blow. I don't know how much damage it takes
if you clear one to four but it's between 8 and 18. Rogue directional-buttons
are pressed in this order: r, d, r, l, d.

Meteor Blow  *LAUNCHER*             QCB+S+T or QCB+R1      max 15+15+15
DESCRIPTION: Rogue flies up in the air, does a half flip in the air and
dives down to the ground fist-first. The ground where she dives explodes
and the opponent will flies high up in the air, leaving you open to
air-combo him. If you stand close to the opponent he will follow you up
in the air and get pounded then follow you down to the ground. Each hit
takes 15, giving you a total of 45 dealt damage. Uses up the Xtreme-bar.
