# 1. Introduction #

This FAQ is meant to be a no-frills, no-gimmicks, as-spoiler-free-as-possible
walkthrough, which should only appear at: www.gamefaqs.com  I suggest that you
look to other FAQs for gameplay info beyond the walkthrough.  Be warned,
however, that the stage, song and character names may be slight spoilers, but 
otherwise, little to no info about the game is revealed.  Otherwise, enjoy!


# 2. Gameplay and Controls #

* 2.1. How to Play*

Like in the first PaRappa game and Um Jammer Lammy, you must live vicariously
as a cool rap star.  You must push the buttons correctly in order to rap like
the game's main protagonist Parappa.  In each stage, a teacher will show you
example lyrics for each rap song, and you must answer with your own lyrics.  So
basically, the game goes like this:

Teacher's example -> your rap -> Teacher's example -> your rap -> etc.

So basically, you must get with the rhythm and push the correct buttons in
order to advance.  The buttons on your PlayStation 2 controller are your
controls that will function as follows:

  Directional Pad: Select options
Left Analog Stick: Hold left or right to make Parappa repeat the first lyric of
                   his rap.  Useful for freestyling.
     Start Button: Give up the rap

Rap Buttons - A = Triangle
              O = Circle
              X = Cross
               = Square
              L = L1 Button
              R = R1 Button

* 2.2. Tips and Tricks *

- In this game, you must watch the rhythm bar interface box at the top of the
screen.  Inside the box, there are two rhythm bars, and each one has a same set
of button preparations.  The top rhythm bar will display as the teacher's 
rhythm bar, and the bottom rhythm bar will display as Parappa's rhythm bar.  
This means that the teacher's face icon will move across the top rhythm bar, 
after which Parappa's face icon will move across the bottom rhythm bar, while 
the top rhythm bar changes to the next button sequence, indicating that it will
be the teacher's next line to rap once Parappa finishes with the bottom rhythm 
bar.  To distinguish that from the top, when Parappa's face goes over a button
icon at the bottom rhythm bar, it will be time to press that button.  You must
do it in the correct order if you want to advance.

- Another thing that is new to the PaRappa genre is the lyrics pushback.  If
you mess up twice and the Performance Meter drops to Bad or Awful Mode, the 
teacher will say, "Getting worse," and push the rap song back two lines,
sometimes altering the lyrics to make them much easier to play.  If you play
correctly on these easier lyrics twice, the Performance Meter will go back up
one mode, and the teacher will say, "Getting better!" before the lyrics return
to normal.  This is extremely helpful, and could especially be a lifesaver if
you mess up twice on the last two song lyrics of the final lesson and the meter
drops to Bad Mode, in which case the teacher will give you a second chance that
could save you from Game Over.  However, don't end the rap song on a bad note,
because if you finish the rap song on Bad or Awful Mode or the Performance
Meter dips below Awful, the game is over and you have to start the whole rap
all over again.

- Yet another thing that is new to the genre is the "freestyling meters" (shown
as boomboxes) at the bottom of the screen below the subtitle box.  These meters
will rank your play in three different ways, yet they will only be fully active
once you finish the game on Red Difficulty Level 1.  Each meter will bear the
faces of two teachers, both representing upper and lower bounds, yet these two
faces won't appear until you have cleared each appropriate teacher's stage, and
each meter won't fully function until both faces appear on it.  The freestyling
meters appear as follows:

  Blue Meter: Adherence to the given sequence.
              Low Position - Beard Burger Master
              High Position - Colonel Noodle

Yellow Meter: Level of the original material you included.
              Low Position - Chop Chop Master Onion
              High Position - Hairdresser Octopus

Purple Meter: Quality and energy of your rapping.
              Low Position - Guru Ant
              High Position - Instructor Moosesha

- Finally, there are four difficulty levels depending on Parappa's hat color,
which tells you what level you're currently playing, and the crown color on
each teacher's icon, which tells you what level you are currently playing the
game at:

Difficulty Level 1: Red
Difficulty Level 2: Blue
Difficulty Level 3: Pink
Difficulty Level 4: Yellow

To advance to the next difficulty level, you must complete all eight stages of 
the game in the current level (the lyrics will slightly change depending on
which level's stage you are playing the game at, and sometimes they may be
random).  Once you have completed the Yellow Difficulty Level 4 on all stages,
you can change Parappa's hat color to whatever you like.  Bear in mind,
however, that the difficulty level does not change, so be careful.

- Like in any difficulty level, let me quote Ryouga in doing one thing clear:
The ultimate goal for each Stage is to jam really well and reach the fabled
"COOL" Rating. But you can't be that cool by just following the Teacher's
examples all the time. You've gotta freestyle your playing while following
the beat. The easiest way to freestyle is to press a button multiple times
more than needed, while following the beat. It's kind of hard to explain,
so here are some examples:

(Example 1: Basic Freestyling)
    Let's say something like this comes up on the Rhythm Bar:

                   O - - - O - - - O - O - O - O -

    You could try something like this:

                   O O O - O O O - O O O O O O O O

    See? All you have to do is follow the song's beat and press the button
     along with it. DON'T just jam the buttons randomly at any pace or
     you're to drop to AWFUL in no time. Get it? Got it? Good!

(Example 2: Squeezing In More Notes)
    Here's something a little more complex:

                   A - O - - - X - - - 

    And here's some freestyling that could take its place:

                 A A A - O O O X X -    

Unlike in PaRappa 1 or UJL, since there are two rhythm bars in the interface
box, and the teacher goes through the top rhythm bar, you can't play before
Parappa's face icon goes over the bottom rhythm bar for a higher score, making
it more difficult to squeeze in more notes.  I'm not sure about it, but I'm
quite positive.  But anyway...

(Example 3: Less Can Be More)
     Okay, sometimes lines with huge amounts of notes that can be tricky
      to play at a decent pace. These kind of lines are just BEGGING to
      be freestyled. Take a look at this line:

                   A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A 

      Now pressing the A Button that quickly for that long can throw
       off your timing or wear you out. Instead of trying to hit EVERY
       beat there, try leaving some out, like this:

                   A - A - A - A - A - A - A A A A 

      Now the freestyled verse not only gives you more time to think
       between beat and lets you hit them more dead-on, it scores you
       more points for originality!

Now that I've given you some tips and tricks, it's time for the...


# 3. Walkthrough #

This is where the stage begins, so keep in mind that as you advance through
each difficulty level, the lyrics can change randomly and words will increase
and repeat more randomly in each lyric, which can give you a bit of a 
challenge.  Fortunately, the lyrics that will always remain the same before the
next three difficulty levels are the ones in Red Difficulty Level 1, so I'll 
only do the lyrics in each stage in this difficulty level (I might try other
difficulty levels later).  So here's my terminology on the song lyrics:

[(Additional Lyrics)]: Lyrics said by a teacher that are not in the subtitle
box.  Example: "Toast the buns.  [My buns are very toasty.]"

([Parappa's Lyric]): Lyrics in parentheses rapped by Parappa, who must follow
the teacher's rap.  Notice that there are words that cannot be repeated, but
there are the beats of the words that will be similar, especially in the final
two stages.

[(US)/(JAP/PAL)]: One song word/phrase in the U.S. version which is different 
from the other song word/phrase in Japan's and PAL's versions, which will be 
used occasionally in Stages 1, 3, and 6.  Example: "We cook the best!  [You
better get in line./Taste better than wine.]" means that in the U.S. version
it's "We cook the best!  You better get in line." while in the Japan/PAL
version it's "We cook the best!  Taste better than wine."

With all of that said, let's move on to...

* 3.1. Stage 1: Beard Burgers, A Parappa Town Tradition! *

Kong Mushi and everyone else as the responder, so be careful.  Note that [A] is
