    Hiya folks. You are now reading a guide to The Simpsons Wrestling,
    my 27th guide for a Simpsons game. It's been 2 years and I gotta
    say this is still as enjoyable as the day I started.
    
    If you've read a FAQ for a fighting or wrestling game then you can
    probably navigate your way through this one. But as always, I'll
    include a Simpsons twist here 'n there. Enjoy!

                             1.2  About the Game
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Pogs are over. Yoyos went the way of the dodo. The latest craze
    in Springfield is now wrestling! Unfortunately this wrestling craze 
    is a result of an intergalactic challenge by two familiar green 
    aliens: Kang and Kodos. They witnessed Jebediah Springfield wrestle
    the famous bear light years ago, and now they have arrived to find
    a wrestler as strong as Jebediah himself!
    
    Springfield citizens have risen to the challenge, but only one
    person can go on to battle the aliens and prove that humans know
    how to lay the smackdown!

                         combos and you will get a taunt. Press R1 or R2

    ===== 3.0 TECHNIQUES ===============================================
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                3.1  Combos
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Though normal attacks are usually pretty weak, pressing Square
    repeatedly will result in a combo attack. The speed of the combo
    varies from character to character, but if you can pull off a combo
    your opponent will be knocked to the ground and you will gain a
    Taunt letter.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                             3.2  Jump Attacks
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    By pressing X to jump, then Square or Triangle, you can perform a
    jump attack on your opponent's head. If you keep pressing Square
    you can continue jumping and cause more damage, but pressing
    Triangle will only work for one jump.
    
    Jumping and pressing Square can be a big help with some of the
    tougher enemies.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                               3.3  Pinning
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    You can press L1 or L2 to pin an opponent, but only when he or she
    has been knocked down. After the pin you will have to the count of
    3 to win the match, but if the opponent's stun meter goes back to 
    zero you will be pushed off. 
    
    The stun meter usually vanishes quickly if the opponent has any
    health. So, beat the health away before attempting a pin.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                               3.4  Holding
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    If you press L1 or L2 near your opponent (and if he or she is not
    stunned), then you can perform a grab. Quickly press Square, Circle,
    or Triangle after that to peform a hold attack.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                              3.5  The Ropes
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    If you run to the ropes on any side of the ring and then press
    Square, Triangle, or Circle you will peform a fast rope attack. This
    is an annoying and effective way to wear down your opponent, but
    watch out for projectiles or special attacks that follow you.

    ===== 4.0 CHARACTERS & STRATEGIES ==================================

                                4.1  Barney
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Profile
    - - - -
    Barney's rise to the Springfield elite was ended when he met a good 
    friend called Duff. Now Barney is known for sleeping in taverns and 
    creating great films with horrible titles.
    
    
    Attacks
    - - - -
    
          Normal Attack: A swipe with a beer mug. His combo is too slow
                         to use effectively.
    
          Strong Attack: Tosses his beer mug through the air. Must be
                         thrown from a distance to work.
    
         Special Attack: A cloud of burp gas floats in the air for a
                         short time. Good for keeping away opponents or
                         trapping them in corners.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Barney
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Barney likes to use his burp gas attack often, and occasionally he
    will throw a beer mug. Just stay far away until any burp clouds
    have disappeared, then go in with some jump attacks. He may try
    to counter your jumps with his own, but he's too slow to do any
    serious damage. Just stick to jump attacks and projectiles.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                4.2  Krusty
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Profile
    - - - -
    Krusty's life in the Jewish gutter instilled a great passion for
    success and the good things in life. Now Springfield's baddest
    clown blows thousands of those good things at the dog track.
    
    
    Attacks
    - - - -
    
          Normal Attack: A simple punch with the hand. His combo is 
                         a bit slow, but it'll work against slow
                         opponents.
    
          Strong Attack: A pie toss. Works great, and it can hit
                         at any range.
    
         Special Attack: Krusty's hammer attack works good for the first
                         hit, but hitting an opponent multiple times is
                         not so easy. Just don't let them jump on you.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Krusty
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Staying far away isn't a good idea because of Krusty's pies, and
    if you're too close he'll definitely get you with his hammer
    special attack. AND, Krusty is fast enough to chase you down and
    pummel you with annoying normal attacks.
    
    So, what's the best thing to do? 
    
    Jump attacks! Krusty will most often stand there and let you jump 
    on his head a good eight or nine times, and this also works great 
    during his special attack.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  4.3  Apu
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Profile
    - - - -
    Apu's studies in computer science landed him a sweet gig at the
    Springfield Kwik-E-Mart. Now he lives the American dream with his
    betrothed wife and nine children.
    
    
    Attacks
    - - - -
    
          Normal Attack: Some Indian karate moves, but they're too slow
                         to pull off effective combos.
    
          Strong Attack: He'll throw out some red squishees. These can
                         hit at any range, so go nuts!
    
         Special Attack: Some sort of karate barrage. He will continually
                         punch and kick, and if you get the opponent
                         trapped this can do some major damage. Definitely
                         one of the better specials.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Apu
    - - - - - - - -
    For the love of all that is holy, STAY AWAY FROM HIS SPECIAL ATTACK!
    As soon as you see his arms blur jump up. Get some jump attacks on
    his head and stay up there because that special attack can bring
    the end of the match if he traps you.
    
    Naturally he'll toss his squishees if you're far away, and he's
    also pretty fast. Use any projectiles you have and use the
    Triangle rope attacks if he's near you.

                                4.4  Willie
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Profile
    - - - -
    Willie was raised in merry ol' Scotland, where folks 'ate everyone
    and each other. Now Willie works as Springfield Elementary's buff
    and grease-hogging groundskeeper.
    
    
    Attacks
    - - - -
    
          Normal Attack: Strikes with his leaf rake. It's actually pretty
                         fast, which means you can get a few combos from
                         it.
    
          Strong Attack: A twirl in the air using his rake. This is great
                         for jabbing at opponents and wearing down their
                         health.
    
         Special Attack: He'll drop a bunch of traps and gardening tools
                         on the arena floor. Great for hurting the
                         opponent while running away.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Willie
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Willie will most likely litter the arena with his traps and tools,
    then he'll chase after you for a few combo attacks. Jump attacks
    work well against him if you see the opportunity, but other than
    that stick to projectile attacks.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 4.5  Homer
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Profile
    - - - -
    Homer Jay Simpson had a motherless childhood, a head full of hair,
    and a lean body. Now he found his mother, went bald, and gained
    about 100 pounds. He currently lives with his 3 kids and wife, Marge.
    
    
    Attacks
    - - - -
    
          Normal Attack: Homer's fists and some kicks, but not good for
                         combos. But if you do the special attack he
                         will be fast enough for some sweet combo action.
    
          Strong Attack: Several bowling balls can be sent rolling
                         on the arena floor. Miniscule damage, but very
                         bothersome.
    
         Special Attack: He will eat a box of donuts and gain some extra
                         speed and power (will also grow larger). Good
                         for a limited time.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Homer
    - - - - - - - - -
    Homer will undoubtedly use his bowling balls, but they don't do much
    damage. Other than that he may try to do some combos or grabs, but
    overall Homer isn't tough to beat at all. All the attacks will work

    Attacks

          Normal Attack: Her little punch-kick combos are quite fast,
                         so I recommend using them whenever possible.
    
          Strong Attack: Make sure the energy meter is charged, then 
                         begin tapping Triangle. You have to pause 
                         for a nanosecond between each note, and if done 
                         correctly a song attack will hit the opponent
                         anywhere in the arena.
    
         Special Attack: You have to get near the opponent, then press
                         Circle to bite the opponent. Doesn't do much
                         damage.

    Oy, quite annoying. Her saxophone attacks can hurt you from anywhere
    in the arena, although they don't take much health. Her combos are
    also one of the quickest, so don't stay near her. Just use the strong 
    and special attacks to get rid of Lisa.

          Normal Attack: Some whacks with her frying pan. The combos
                         are slow, but very strong.
    
          Strong Attack: Uses her hair to lash out at the opponent.
                         Very good reach and also takes a good chunk
                         of damage.
    
         Special Attack: Maggie will be released and slow down the
                         opponent.

    She will always release Maggie, but if you're fast enough you can
    probably avoid it. Other than that she will probably try to follow
    you and hit you with the pan. Use the Trianlge rope attack to get
    rid of Marge, as well as projectiles.

          Normal Attack: Some pretty fast punches and kicks, which of
                         course means some good combos.
    
          Strong Attack: A slingshot. It's OK, but doesn't do much
                         damage.
    
         Special Attack: A ride around on his skateboard. Again,
                         doesn't do much damage and it's hard to aim.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Bart
    - - - - - - - - -
    Don't panic when you see the skateboard because it doesn't do much.
    Bart will also use his slingshot (another weak move), and he will
    probably chase you around the whole time. The Triangle rope move
    should dispatch him quickly, along with whatever special attack you
    may have.

          Normal Attack: Slow moves, and a slow combo. Not his best.
    
          Strong Attack: A long yoyo. This thing is weak, but can hit
                         from far away. Good for avoiding attacks.
    
         Special Attack: He will release a chihuahua, which will run
                         around and bite the opponent. Annoying and
                         effective against opponents who like to

          Normal Attack: Some very fast punches. This is probably the
                         best combo attack in the game.
    
          Strong Attack: He will toss some Flaming Moes into the air.
                         Although they only go a set distance, the fire
                         that remains is great for stopping opponents
                         who like to follow.
    
         Special Attack: Moe will spin around with his board and nail.
                         This is very strong and works great at close

    Moe will toss his Flaming Moes if you're far, and the fire from them
    will last a while. If you're near you will probably get hit by a 
    few combos and his very strong special attack. The best attacks are
    the jump attacks and the Triangle rope attack, and any specials that
    can follow him around or otherwise get in his way.

                         quickly and has a good aim.
    
         Special Attack: Will release either a toy robot or a land mine.
                         The robot follows the opponent and blows up,
                         but the mine must be stepped on to blow up.

    Frink likes his gun, and that's probably what he'll use for most

    use whatever projectiles you may have, or the Triangle rope attack.

    Well, not so much dead. But any time you pin Flanders, he will get
    a second chance! Not kidding. The count will go to three, then a
    heavenly light will shine down and Flanders' health meter will
    completely refill. This is obviously good news if you are playing
    as Flanders, but sucks if you're fighting him.

          Normal Attack: Fast punches and great for combos.
    
          Strong Attack: Will toss a bible that can hit at any range.
                         Doesn't do much damage though.
    
         Special Attack: The power of god. Literally. He will kneel and
                         call forth some bolts of lightning from the sky
                         that can cause major damage. It's possible to
                         get hit before the attack is finished, so do it
                         when far away or when the opponent is stunned.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Flanders

    First of all, do not let Flanders use his special attack. That thing
    is a killer, albeit easy to avoid. Other than that he will toss bibles
    every once in a while and go for combos. Use your projectiles and
    special attacks often, in addition to some jump attacks if you
    can trap him.

    Attacks

          Normal Attack: Some fast punches. It isn't the fastest combo,
                         but it's still pretty effective.
    
          Strong Attack: Tosses a three-eyed fish out into the ring. 
                         The fish will follow the opponent for a while 
                         before disappearing.
    
         Special Attack: I'm not certain, but I think Burns' nuclear
                         bombs are the special attack. The thing is those
                         bombs appear whether you press Circle or not,
                         and pressing Circle will only make Smithers stand
                         still for a second or two. Either way, those bombs
                         cause massive damage.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Smithers
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    Smithers alone is really no problem. His fish doesn't cause much
    damage and his combo tactics are weak. But then you have those bombs
    dropped by Burns. They are the real killer, and the best way to
    handle them is to stay at the opposite corner of the ring as much
    as possible. Use projectiles and special attacks to beat up Smithers
    and avoid the bombs.

    Attacks

          Normal Attack: Very fast and very strong hits with the tentacles
                         and club. Although it is hard to aim because of
                         the size.
    
          Strong Attack: A ray gun. Works great from any distance, but
                         doesn't deal much damage.
    
         Special Attack: A barrage of tentacle and club combos. Works
                         pretty well, but it has the same aiming problems
                         as the normal attacks.
    
    
    Playing Vs. Kang
    - - - - - - - - -
    Oh boy, this one's a toughie. Kang (depending on the difficulty)
    will follow you around the whole time and try to wallop you with his
    stretching tentacles and club. And if you're far away he will go
    trigger-happy with his ray gun.
    
    The number one thing to remember is USE THAT TAUNT. Every chance you
    get man, because this guy is no joke. Pick a character with one of
    those special attacks that keep going (like Apu or Flanders) and use
    it, AND keep packin' in the combo attacks. This should cause a 
    fairly good amount of damage.
    
    Jump attacks also work well, but only when you get an opportunity
    to reach his head. Most of the time he's too close to get up there.

          Normal Attack: Some quick hits with a wooden club. This is
                         a fast a damaging combo, one that I recommend
                         using often.
    
          Strong Attack: A tommy gun. This thing only needs a bit of
                         energy, which means you can shoot multiple times
                         in a row. And it also causes major damage.

          Strong Attack: A rocket launcher. This thing can cause some
                         damage, but only if it is properly aimed.
    
         Special Attack: The ax attack ain't bad, in fact it's similar
                         to Krusty's hammer attack. The only problem is
                         getting the opponent in the right spot to get

    Itchy will try to hit you, but if you keep pressing Square he'll

    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Thanks to:
    
    1. Matt Groening. The man created The Simpsons, which has been on 
       the air for 15 years and is still going strong. Shine on you crazy 
       bearded bastard!
    
    2. If I thank Matt Groening, then I also have to praise the hundreds 
       of individuals who are involved with the show. To the writers, 
       voice actors, animators, producers, gofers, and every other person 
       involved... thank you!
    
    3. Wilson Lau, whose 'Bart vs. the Space Mutants' guide inspired
       me to write FAQs.
    
    4. Fox Interactive, Activision, and Big Ape Productions for creating 
       the game. Can't have too many Simpsons games, no sir.
    
    5. Tips & Tricks (X-mas 2002) for the codes. I LOVE those magazines.
    
    6. Rama Yudhistira for the Itchy & Scratchy correction.
    
    7. Thank YOU for reading. After all, I didn't write this for my own 
       health...

    The issue of too many e-mails isn't a problem, so I'll most likely 
    respond to any questions (for now). But, I do delete e-mails without 
    a subject. Put 'Simpsons Wrestling' or something similar in the 
    subject line.
