Introduction:

While tip-toeing around the internet, I saw that there weren't a whole lot 
of guides out there for DOA2: Hardcore.  There were a few, but nothing for 
the people out there who just want to know some stuff, like how to unlock 
costumes. I decided to write what I know and hopefully this will help some 
of the people out there who don't want to register to certain services just 
to see one lousy webpage.

Revisions from Previous Versions:
v.0.03 -  Maintenance.  I haven't updated this FAQ in a long, long time, but
		  I wanted to keep this up to date a little bit.  Please let me know
		  about anything I might have missed.
v.0.02 -  A couple of people emailed me to correct Tina's C7 costume.
          Also, a slight correction on a tag team combination.
v.0.01 -  Initial version.

Tiny short and opinionated review of DOA2:Hardcore:

A port of the arcade game Dead or Alive 2 that was developed on Naomi (read:
Dreamcast) hardware, DOA2:Hardcore is the penultimate version of this game.
(Dead or Alive: Ultimate for Xbox is, well, the ultimate version.)
DOA2:Hardcore improves on the Dreamcast version in most ways, including
graphics, control, and options.  Most of these tweaks are too slight perhaps
for players who already own the Dreamcast version to go out and buy, but for
people who don't have or won't buy a Dreamcast, this is a pretty sweet game to
own.  One may also add me to the side who prefers the less complex fighting
system of DOA2 than the expert-tilted Tekken series.  Plus the character design
of DOA is a lot better than Tekken in my opinion, in that the characters have a
lot more personality than those ultra-boring Tekken people. I mean, come on.
But that's my opinion.
(Tekken fans, please don't email me because of my review.  If you like it and
all, more power to you.)

Note:  Each objective must be done sequentially.  One can't simply earn a 
whole bunch of points for one objective and expect to get all the costumes 
before that objective.  Get one, and the next will come after.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Section Three:  Special Tag Teams
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tag team attack:  Forward, Forward + F+P+K

One of the newer features of the PlayStation2 version was giving more
combinations of characters more specialized tag team moves.  Some have said
that the PlayStation2 version gives all combinations of characters tag team
moves; this isn't exactly true, but still there are more tag team moves.  Note
that not all teams are reciprocal. Therefore, some characters have a tag team
move with one, but the other character in the tag team would just use the
default tag team attack.  Example: Gen-Fu has a special tag team move when
tagging Jann-Lee, but Jann-Lee does not have one tagging Gen-Fu.


Kasumi:
     with Hayabusa, Helena, Ayane, and Ein

Hayabusa:
     with Kasumi, Gen-Fu (combo move), Tina, Bass, Leon, Jann-Lee, Ayane, and
     Ein.

Helena:
     with Kasumi, Gen-Fu, and Lei-Fang

Gen-Fu:
     with Hayabusa (combo move), Helena, Leon, Zack, and Lei-Fang

Tina:
     with Hayabusa, Bass, Zack, Lei-Fang, and Leon

Bass:
     with Hayabusa, Tina, Zack, Leon, and Ayane

Leon:
     with Hayabusa, Gen-Fu, Tina, Bass, and Zack

Jann-Lee:
     with Hayabusa, Gen-Fu, Lei-Fang, and Ein

Lei-Fang:
     with Helena, Gen-Fu, Tina, Zack, Jann-Lee, and Ayane

Ayane:
     with Kasumi, Hayabusa, Bass, and Ein

Ein:
     with Kasumi, Hayabusa, Bass, Jann-Lee, and Ayane


For people who have unlocked and regularly play as Bayman, just substitute Leon
with him.  Bayman and Leon themselves also have their own tag team.

Tengu does not have any special tag team moves with anyone.
