    Basic Moves:
    
      All moves listed assumes player character is facing right and facing the
      opponent. The characters no longer automatically turn to face their
      opponent, so stay on the alert!
    
             U                          T
         UB  _  UF
           _| |_                      (/\)
        B |_ X _| F               S ([])(()) O
            |_|        []    [>       (><)
         DB     DF
             D       Select Start      X
    
    
      Slash: S (Weak)/ T (Hard)
      Kick: X (Weak)/ O (Hard)
    
      High attack (standing): slash/kick
      Low attack: D/hold D, slash/kick
      High defence: hold B
      Low defence: hold DB
    
      Dash forward: tap F, tap F
      Run forward: tap F, hold F
      Backstep: tap B, tap B
    
      Throw (when close to opponent): B, T/O
      Low attack: D, slash/kick
      Air attack: UB/U/UF, slash/kick
      Air attack (while jumping): slash/kick/special
      Running attack: tap F, tap F, slash/kick
      Running attack (while running): slash/kick
    
      Roll toward screen: L1
      Roll away from screen: L2
      Advancing roll: F, L1/L2
      Quick dodge : tap F, tap F, L1/L2
      Quick dodge (while running): L1/L2
    
    Getting Up:
    
      Normal recovery: Do nothing
      Fast recovery: Hit the attack buttons repeatedly
      Roll toward screen: L1
      Roll away from screen: L2
      Roll foward: F
      Roll backward: B
      Jump up: U
    
    Ground Attacks:
    
      When you opponent is down, you may do a close attack (stomp) or a far
      attack (pounce) on him/her. Note that you must wait til he/she has
      finished tumbling before you can perform the attack.
       
      Stomp (when opponent is on the ground): S+X
      Pounce (when opponent is on the ground): T+O
    
      Duke is too noble to attack a downed opponent. Instead, pressing T+O
      when the opponent is down will cause Duke to taunt, depleting his
      opponent's overdrive gauge.
    
    Back Attack:
    
      When your character's back is to the opponent, you can do a back attack
      which will also turn your character to face the opponent.
    
      Back slash (when back is to opponent): S/T
      Back kick (when back is to opponent): X/O
      Back low slash (when back is to opponent): D, S/T
      Back low kick (when back is to opponent): D, X/O
      
    Taunting:
    
      Taunt: [select]
    
      Taunting increases your opponent's overdrive gauge. You can still defend
      while taunting. You can also break a taunt by attacking.
    
    Special Moves:
    
      Special moves are executed using a directional sequence followed by one
      more attack buttons. Some special moves may be executed using the R1 and
      R2 buttons, or by pressing all S+T+O+X buttons at the same time.
    
      Special move 1: R1 or S+T+O+X
      Special move 2: R2 or B/F+S+T+O+X
      Special move 3: R1+R2 or D+S+T+O+X
    
        R1+R2 will execute a secret move if the instant secret moves mode
        (see below) is active. D+S+T+O+X can still be used to access special
        move 3.
    
      Overdrive (when overdrive gauge is flashing):  S+T+O+X / R1+R2
      Desperation (when life gauge is flashing red): S+T+O+X / R1+R2
    
    
    Characters:
      
      The follow list each character's special moves, secret moves, overdrive
      move and desperation move in respective order. The format is:
      <line, special, blank line, secret, line, overdrive, desperation, line>
    
      The format of move names are denoted as follows:
      "Move"     - Character shouts the name as the move is executed.
      (Move)     - Official name not known.
       Move?     - Not sure if name is correct.
      (air)      - Move may be executed only while character is jumping.
      (air/land) - Move may be performed either on land or while jumping.

    Combos:
    
      Basic combos usually start with a weak attack followed by a strong
      attack and/or special move. A combo will work only when the first hit
      connects, even if blocked by the opponent.
    
      Chain Combos are performed by doing a normal attack/combo followed
      immediately by a special move, secret move, or desperation move.
    
      There are a few variations you can execute: the basic weak-to-strong
      combo, a chain combo, or a W-S chain combo.
    
      1. Weak-to-Strong Combos
    
        As the name implies this simple combo is executed by doing a weak
        attack immediately followed by a strong attack.
    
        There are thus 4 combinations weak-slash-to-hard-slash, weak-kick-
        to-hard-kick, weak-slash-to-hard-kick, or weak-kick-to-hard-slash
        (S,T; X,O; S,O; X,T), which you can permutate with high or low attacks
        to give a possible total of 16 different W-S combos per character.
    
        The permutations are:
        
          H-H    High attack to High attack
          H-L    High attack to Low attack
          L-H    Low attack to High attack
          L-L    Low attack to Low attack
    
          All    Any of the above
          H-?    First attack must be High
    
          Some character's normal attacks can hit from a distance. In some
          cases, the striking distance may affect the execution of a combo:
    
          Far    Only works when far
          Near   Only works when near
    
        Not all combinations are available on all the characters. The
        following table lists the W-S combos and any condition(s) require
        to perform them for each character:

        E.g. Sofia's high weak slash to low hard slash.
    
      2. Chain Combos
    
        Basic chain combos may be performed by doing a normal (weak or strong)
        attack followed immediately by a special move, secret move or
        desperation move.
    
        E.g. Eiji's weak slash to hishouzan (F, D, D, slash)
    
      3. Weak-to-Strong Chain Combos
    
        This is simply executed by performing a W-S combo ending in a special
        move, secret move or desperation move. Very effective in taking a
        large chunk out of your opponent's life.
    
        E.g. Kayin's low weak slash, low hard slash to upper glide (DF, T)
    
    
    Match Bosses Line-up:
    
      Each character will fight a semi-random line-up of characters and a arch-
      rival before fighting the boss(es). The follow table lists the match
      line-up for the last 3 battles in a 1P game.

    Boss Codes & Hints:
    
      To fight Sho, you must defeat the game at level 5 or above without using
      any continues.
    
      When you first start up, none of the bosses are available, and the menu
      highlight box is yellow.
    
      Uranus and Master: At the title screen, as the menu items fly in from the
        left, do this sequence on controller 1
    
        L1, L2, T, R1, R2, S
    
        Alternatively, beat the game at level 4 or above with as many continues
        as you like. The fastest way is to set the number of bouts to 1.
    
        You can choose Uranus and Master when the menu highlight box is cyan.
    
      Sho and Vermillion: At the title screen, as the menu items fly in from
        the left, do this sequence on controller 2
    
        S, R2, R1, T, L2, L1 (reverse of Uranus and Master code)
    
        Alternatively, beat the game at level 6 or above with as many continues
        as you like. Or beat the game using Master at level 5 or above.
    
        You can choose Sho and Vermillion when the menu highlight box is red.
    
      To select the bosses, highlight the ? at the character selection screen
      and hold the [select] button to slow down the scrolling. Press S, T, O or
      X when the required boss's face appears.
    
    
    Instant Secret Moves:
    
      After Sho and Vermillion are selectable (see above), as the menu items
      fly in from the left, do this sequence on controller 1:
    
        R1, R2, S, L1, L2, T
    
      Alternatively, beat the game using any character.
    
      The menu highlight box will turn green. You can now execute any
      character's secret move by pressing R1+R2.
    
    
    Costume Colors:
    
      Each character has 4 different sets of costume and hair colors.
      Player 1 and 2 cannot both use the same colors.
    
      On controller 1, when you highlight a character, you can use S or T
      to select the original colors, X or O to select the alternative colors.
    
      To get the other two sets of colors, highlight the character you want
      on the ? and press S or X. T and O will select from the original two
      sets.
    
        The follow table details the character colors:

                           There is another option "Control", which will only
                           become available when you do the camera trick (see
                           below).
      Sound .............. Monoaural or stereo sound output. Default stereo.
      Character select ... Normal or Fast modes. In the normal mode, a 3D
                           rotating model of the character is shown in the
                           select window. In fast mode, only text showing the
                           character stats are shown. Using Fast mode reduces
                           CD loading time. Default Normal.
    
    
    Camera Tricks:
    
      In the option's screen, set all R1, R2, L1 and L2 to "Not Used". Next,
      set the camera option to "Control", cycle through one of the R1, R2,
      L1, L2 options until all of them is set to "Camera".
    
      Rotate camera:
        Use R1, R2, L1 and L2 to rotate the camera angles. Works both when
        paused and while fighting.
    
      No gauges:
        Pause the game and on controller 1, press S+T+O+X and [select].
        The options menu will disappear. Do it again and the energy and
        overdrive guages will disappear. Press start to play without gauges
        or S+T+O+X+[select] again to get back the menu and gauges.
    
      Zoom mode:
        If controller 1 is set to camera mode and you do the no gauges trick
        (see above), the R1, R2, L1 and L2 buttons will now control the
        zooming and vertical scrolling.
    
      Frame advance mode:
        When paused, pressing [select] on controller 2 will advance the game
        by one frame. Hold down [select] for slow motion.
    
    
    Game bug:
    
      I found this bug while playing with the slow motion trick (see Camera
      Trick above). Pause the game just before your character is about to lose
      from a final blow. On controller 1, remove the options menu by pressing
      [select] and S+T+O+X simultaneously. Do it again if you don't like the
      gauges :) Now, advance frame by frame using the [select] button on
      controller 2 until the character loses. Don't do anything and the game
      will keep going into the next round, losing and finally return to the
      main menu automatically. Now, notice that the options menu and game menu
      are both active on the same screen! Talk about multitasking. I managed
      to mess up the text font and graphics that are only loaded at startup,
      but the game still plays fine.

    I'm looking for more secret moves, the remaining official move names,
    combos, and translations to the characters' profiles, victory speeches
    and endings. Please email me any corrections if you find mistakes in
    any section (especially the moves and combos). Send your contributions
    to siepiau@mincom.oz.au and you will be credited!
