The Path to be a King (Story Mode) - You will play as Yoh Asakura in 
this Mode.
 New Game - Starts a new game

Training Mode (The following four are Japanese so I'll explain each of 
them)
 *Practice - You can practice your special moves here. The Dummy cannot 
be killed here so you can hit them as long as you like.

 *Funbari Master - You can perform combos here. Before you start the 
battle, choose one of the eight combos that is listed on every character 
and press the corresponding buttons that is located at the bottom of the 
screen.

 *Computer Battle Training - In this mode, the CPU will attack you and 
the only thing you can do is to evade and deflect their attacks (you 
cannot attack or perform special move in this mode). A good training for 
those who have a hard time beating their opponents.

Spirit Fusion Yoh Asakura

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Amidaryuu: Dai Gokoujin          f,f + []

- All of his Combos can be cancelled into Gokoujin but you cannot cancel 
it to Amidaryuu: Shinkuu Butagiri.
- Amidaryuu: Dai Gokoujin is blockable. Once you hit first, the second 
and the third hits are blockable.
- These tips also applies to O.S Yoh Asakura and Furyouku Yoh Asakura.

Has the same Special and Spirit Moves.

Furyouku Yoh Asakura
Power Spirit: Amidamaru (in the Harusame added with shield)
HP: 270
OSP: 90
Motto: "Ja! Kyou wa haru ikite toba shiyou!"
Opening Animation: Same as Oversoul Yoh Asakura
----------

Same as the above.

Bokutou no Ryuu (Ryuunosuke Umemiya)

HP: 250 
OSP: 65
Motto: "En ka joutou!"
Opening Animation: <grunts> "Ikuze, Tokagerou!"
----------

Special Moves:
Tokagerou Slash                  []
Ame no Murakumo                  f + []
Tokagerou Stand and Hit          d + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Super Meteo                      d,b + []

- I really don't like his Spirit Move. It starts out very slow and the 
opponent will deflect it causing some serious damage to you.
- Most of his Combos can be cancelled into Tokagerou Slash but you 
cannot cancel it into Ame no Murakumo.
- Tokagerou Stand and Hit is an anti-air move.

Combos

Horo Horo
Power Spirit: Kororo
HP: 240 
OSP: 80
Motto: "Yaiiiii!"
Opening Animation: "Hyoi gattai, Koropokuru Kororo! Ainu sunobo 
(Snowboard)!"
----------

I am very sorry but his moves are from Ainu (you know...Samurai Spirits 
Nakoruru?). If somebody knows Horo Horo's moves in Ainu language, e-mail 
me and I'll give 'em a pleasant thank you!

Special Moves:
Kau Kau Puruyanpe                []
Emushiru Pekorunoda              d + []
Mutsupuku Purunbe                f + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Nipopo Punch                     d,b + []
Avalanche Wave                   d,f + []
Ice Snowboard Cyclone            f,f + []

- Yup! He has three Spirit Moves but the Ice Snowboard Cyclone is the 
fastest Spirit Move. Nipopo Punch is best when the opponent is stun.
- Emushiru Pekorunoda must be blocked on the ground but not in the air.
- In the Anime, if he becomes the Shaman King, he will change the flow 
of nature in Japan so that the Koropokuru can live peacefully. Are Ainu 
really like that? Yes of course!
- Did you know that Kororo is a Koropokuru? Koropokuru means "Little 
persons" in Ainu Language (Thanks to Konru Chise for her Samurai Spirits 
Website and the story about the Koropokuru!).

HP: 300
OSP: 75

----------

Oversoul: Cupid-san              f + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low): 
Riot of Pain                     f,f + []

- The Spirit Move is VERY abusive! It has a chance to make the opponent 
stun and perform it again! Abuse this move if you like!

Oyamada Manta
Power Spirit: His Encyclopedia!
HP: 180
OSP: 0 
Motto: "Ganbaruzo!"
Opening Animation:
----------

Is he Kobun or what?!

Special Moves:
Hyper Beam                       f + []
Angel of Imagination             b + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Hyper Encyclopedia               d,u + []

- I have to admit, he's weak and his Hyper Encyclopedia is hard to 
perform! Can anybody tell me how it works?
- In the Anime, his Power Spirit was Mosque, a blacksmith and a friend 
of Amidamaru who forged the Harusame AND he was in Manta's laptop. Why 
didn't Bandai put him?

Anna Kyouyama
Power Spirits: Zenki(Blue) and Gouki(Red)
HP: 270
OSP: 90
Motto: "Nani?"
Opening Animation: "Sa, kakaterashai."

Special Moves:
Summon Shikigami Zenki           []
Hyakuretsu Binta                 b + []
Ohkami Punch                     f + []
Necklace Boomerang               d + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low)
1080 Necklace: Nigerunasai!!     b,f + []

- She may be weak but fast and can dish out serious damage when it comes 
to combos! She is the fastest of all characters!
- What's so cool about Anna? Her 2 Winposes! The first one is when Zenki 
and Gouki covers Anna and turns into a schoolgirl (which reminds me of 
Vampire Chronicle's Morrigan) and the second is removing her red long 
scarf(or bandanna?) and says something (also reminds me Marvel vs. 
Capcom 2 Jill Valentine!).
- I think you can mash the buttons while executing the 1080 Necklace: 
Nigerunasai!! for more damage.

Yohmei Asakura       
Power Spirit: Shuriken (it looks like Totoro)
HP: 300
OSP: 75
Motto: "Washi no de ban ka?"

Nidan Tsuki                      u,u

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Hyakuretsu Shikigami             b,f + []

performed it.

Tao Jun
Power Spirit: Li Pailong
HP: 280
OSP: 70
Motto: "Iku wa yo, Pailong!"

----------

Special Moves:
Satellite Ground Kick            []
Missile Kick                     Jump then press []
Rekkazan                         f + []
Foujan Kyaku                     Jump the press d + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Tenshou no Ougi: Blodia-Ken      d,f + []

- Blodia-Ken is chargeable. Charging it too much will cause one hit and 
minimum damage so it's best not to charge it up.
- For those why Pailong has a talisman in his Munak Hat, that's because 
he is a Kuang-Shi (or Quang-Zhi whichever you prefer) a Chinese Zombie 
(like Vampire Chronicle Lei Lei). He was assassinated by the Tao Family 
then Jun used her Ofuda to revive Li Pailong.

8. O,d+T,O,T,d+O,T

Shaft. Combos 2,5 and 7 can be only cancelled.

Iron Maiden Jeanne
Power Spirit: Shamashuu (with a book)

Chair of Torture                 b + []
Man Trap Torture                 f + []
Executioner's Pain (Inochi ni..) d,f + []

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Axe of Pain                      Jump then d + []

- Although she's cute, her Spirit Move sucks so you'll have to check the 
range and height before executing it.

Combos
1. T,T,O,O,T,T
2. O,T,O,T,O,T
3. T,T,d+T,d+T,T,T

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Chou Golden Chuukazanmai         d,f + []
Perfect Chuukazanmai             b,f + []

- Chuukazanmai acts as an Anti-Air and of course, the opponent won't 
defend while he or she is in the air! While they're on the ground, 
perform the Bason Ground Hammer as it acts as a Pursuit Attack! Overall, 
Tao Ren has the abilities of a fighter!
- All of his combos can be cancelled into Chuukazanmai, Bason Ground 
Hammer or Golden Chuukazanmai (unless your opponent is knocked out in 
the air).

Spirit Moves (HP must be Low):
Silver Sonic Cannon              d,f + []

- Silver Knee is one of his best moves. He teleports to the other side 
and does a dashing knee! But it's also good for confusing opponents.

transforms to Angel Zerueru!

(before his X Laws costume).

5. Secrets Revealed
----------
If you want all characters, here's how to get them:

1. Finish the Story Mode once on any difficulty setting and you will 
unlock the following characters: Horo Horo, Faust the 8th, Silver, 
Marco, Chocolove and Lyserg Diethel.

2. To unlock Oversoul Yoh Asakura, play Story Mode until you get to the 
Episode 5 "Oversoul" (for those who understand Japanese). Before you 
fight Silver, you will see two choices now, pick the first option "Yosh! 
Misete yaru!" and the screen will flash. Then at Versus Screen, you will 
now play as Oversoul Yoh Asakura!

3. To unlock Furyouku Yoh Asakura, play Story Mode and reach Episode 6. 
Try to complete Yohmei's Quiz (it takes luck to complete it, if you 
fail.....I'm very sorry and reset!). If you successfully complete it, 
Yohmei will reward you to play as Furyouku Yoh Asakura.

4. To unlock the Mini-Games and Funbari Sadon Desu Mode, complete Story 
Mode on normal difficulty setting or above. As for the Mini-Games, 
successfully complete the objectives that Anna gives you in Story Mode.

5. To reset, play on any mode then hold START+SELECT+L1+L2+R1+R2. This 
will take you back to the Title Screen. 

6. If you want a Flash Animation of each character, your Power Spirit 
Synchro must be 100% and flashing red (just like Samurai Spirits Series 
^^). Then perform any Special or Spirit Moves before the opponent 
attacks or does nothing.

Yohmei Asakura -                   Finish Funbari Sadon Desu as Spirit 
Fusion Yoh Asakura on normal difficulty setting or above.

Tamao Tamamura -                   Finish Shaman Fight as Oversoul Yoh 
Asakura on normal difficulty setting or above.

Anna Kyouyama -                    Play the Mini-Game Mode with the 
highest score.

Oyamada Manta -                    Finish Funbari Sadon Desu as Anna 
Kyouyama on normal difficulty setting or above.

Iron Maiden Jeanne -               Unlock all of the other characters, 
then finish Shaman Fight as Marco on normal difficulty setting or above.

6. Miscellaneous
----------

6.a Mini-Games

There are five types of Mini-Games that you can play anytime.

----------
RUNNING SESSION
----------
The objective is to reach the goal. Seems easy you think but...if you 
run too slow, Shikigami Zenki is behind you and you'll say "Someone's 
after me!! Help!" of some sort AND obstacles that you will need to avoid 
like: Tin Can, Children's Bicycle, Rock, The 'yellow and black' thing 
that is used in public (forgot what it is), Water (I know it's not an 
obstacle but if you try to slow down, you'll end up slipping yourself). 
Tap the O Button and Yoh will start running slowly and X Button for 
jumping, which is an advantage for avoiding obstacles. If you keep 
mashing (or pounding) the O Button, you will run even faster! If you 
wanna cheat, try this: If you have a Turbo Controller, start doing it 
NOW!

Story Mode Objectives
Reach 4000m within 30 seconds.

Mini-Game Objectives
Reach 5000m or higher. (Maximum is 9999m)


----------
WOODCUTTING SESSION
----------
Objectives are simple: Cut the woods. But there are also distractions 
that you shouldn't cut: Manta, Konchi, Ponchi, and the wood with a tail 
on it. The tricky part is look for the one spinning, that's the wood! 
Move Yoh by pressing the Left or Right D-Pad and X Button for the Action 
Button.

Story Mode Objectives
Cut 30 woods within 1 minute.

Mini-Game Objectives
Cut 150 woods or higher.


----------
SYNCHRONIZATION WITH AMIDAMARU
----------
This is the most simple Mini-Game. All you have to do is to follow 
Amidamaru's command (If he said [], press the [] button) but be careful 
about making mistakes, though. There are some Power Spirits who will 
distract you. BTW, if you can read Japanese, always see his phrase 
"degozaru" (like Kenshin Himura always says in Rurouni Kenshin).

Story Mode Objectives
Reach 100% within 1 minute.

Mini-Game Objectives
Score 150% or better. 


----------
YOHMEI'S CAVE OF KNOWLEDGE
----------
The hardest of ALL Mini-Games. It will test your knowledge on how well 
you know the Anime and the Game (It would be better if you record all 64 
Episodes of the Shaman King Anime....hehehehe joke ;P). Most of all, if 
you can't read Japanese, well tough luck! It also has a time limit, if 
the screen is pitch black, time's up!

Story Mode Objectives
Reach 4000m within 7 days.

Mini-Game Objectives
Beat the score of 3600m.


----------
SIT AND SQUAT
----------
Your objectives is to survive the pain and avoiding the Shikigami. Tap O 
so Yoh can regain his balance and X Button to squat and avoid the 
Shikigami. My tip is to keep tapping the O Button, if you don't, Yoh 
might start the cramps in his knees until he falls off balance! If you 
either get stuck by the Shikigami, just survive for a couple of second 
and it will fly away. If you get stuck with the Shikigami three times or 
fall unbalance, Anna might blast you.  ^_^

Story Mode Objectives
Survive within 1 minute.

Mini-Game Objectives
Survive within 2 minutes and 30 seconds or higher.


Send me your best records. Who knows, I might add you to my 
Contributions List! E-mail me on how I got the highest score in running 
and squatting. Here's mine:

RUNNING SESSION                   9999m
WOODCUTTING SESSION               151 woods
SYNCHRO WITH AMIDAMARU            167%
YOHMEI'S CAVE OF KNOWLEDGE        I'm trying my best to beat 3600m T_T
SIT AND SQUAT                     10 minutes and 1 second

6.c Lyrics

The Opening Anime is Northern Lights, 2nd Opening sung by Megumi 
Hayashibara.

Kimi ni todoke Northern lights...
Hikisakareta futatsu no kokoro
Yukiba no nai omoi ga mune o shimetsuke
Naze kono toki ni deatta no ka to
Toikakeru sube wa
Saeta kage ni chiru

Yuragu koto nai
Tsuyosa na do naku
Susunda saki ni
Motomeru kotae ga aru

Soshite itsuka todoku yume o
Ima shizuka ni kanji you
Kimi no ketsui boku no mayoi
Meguriai ga sashishimesu
Ai mo tsumi mo yume mo yami mo
Ima subete mini matotte
Kimi no chikara boku no kokoro
Kasanariatta shunkan
Nani ga umareru...
Do you believe in destiny?


6.d How to defeat Hao Asakura (Story Mode)

OK. So you guys want it, right? Although Hao's Spirit of Fire (550 HP 
and 100 OSP) is a one tough cookie against you, here's some tips on 
defeating him. For those who play as:

Furyouku Yoh Asakura
Having 300 HP and 95 OSP means you can dish some damage on him. Perform 
a Kuuchuu Shinkuu Butagiri (press f+[] while in air) and try to keep 
away from him as possible. If the SoF attemps a fire teleportation, 
quickly backward dash to avoid damage. If you're low on HP, whack him 
with Dai Gokoujin (having synchronization with 100% inflicts more 
damage). With luck, Hao will laugh and both of them will scram. Oh and 
one last tip, if SoF's HP is 300 below, use your Spirit Explosion (f+X) 
so you can have more OSP and you want him to ask for more!!!

Oversoul Yoh Asakura
Same as Furyouku but stay away from him.

Spirit Fusion Yoh Asakura
You have an average HP and OSP, chances are that you are gonna get 
whacked by him. Same as the two above and keep away from him AT ALL!!
