0. Notes
     This FAQ focuses on the US arcade version of the game. This will not 
mention anything on the 'D' 'V' and 'N' points thing on getting the hidden 
stuff. (BTW, check out http://www.gamefaqs.com/mvc2vms.html as CJayC has put up 
a hacked VMU with all the secrets unlocked; believe me, that's probably the only 
reasonable way so far.) This FAQ also assumes that you've at least played Marvel 
vs. Capcom and the other Vs. games. I didn't want to fluff this FAQ too much by 
adding stuff most people already know.


1. When is it coming out?
     It's already out in various places across the country starting 3/16/00. 
Check the arcades in your area. For you importers, the release date for the 
Japanese Dreamcast was moved up to 3/28/00. The DC US version had a date of 
5/02/00, but that has since been pushed back to around July. I've also heard 
that it won't be out until September.


2. Who are the characters in the game?
     There were thought to be 52 characters in the arcade version of the game 
and 40 for the Dreamcast version originally. But it seems that all 56 are going 
to be in there even thought there are 52 boxes. On the Japanese Dreamcast 
version, more boxes reveal themselves when you unlock past the 40 original ones. 
This list is for the arcade version:

     Capcom               Marvel
     ------               ------
     Akuma                Cable
     Amingo               Captain America
     Anakaris             Cyclops
     B.B. Hood            Dr.Doom
     Captain Commando     Gambit
     Guile                Hulk
     Hayato               Iceman
     Jin                  Juggernaut
     Morrigan             Magneto
     Ruby Heart           Marrow
     Ryu                  Shuma Gorath
     Sonson               Spider-Man
     Strider Hiryu        Venom
     Zangief              Wolverine

and 28 need to be unlocked:
          Capcom          Marvel
          ------          ------
Block 1:  Cammy           Omega Red
          Jill            Psylocke
          Sakura          Rogue
          Tron Bonne      Storm

Block 2:  Chun-Li         Iron Man
          M.Bison         Silver Samurai
          Megaman         War Machine
          Roll            Wolverine-2

Block 3:  Charlie         Blackheart
          Dan             Colossus
          Dhalsim         Sabretooth
          Ken             Spiral

Block 4:  Felicia         Sentinel
          Servbot (Kobun) Thanos

You can try to make out the hidden characters during the intro for the game, 
which shows all the characters or their outline if they are still hidden.

     A. How are the hidden characters unlocked?

     The US version is not using the VMU from the Dreamcast at all. I think 
their reasoning was that people will mess with it in the arcades here or that 
people won't really bother with it at all. The hidden characters are unlocked by 
Exp.(experience) points that is shown on the character selection screen and 
title screen. Each coin/token put into the machine gives you one experience 
point (this could vary depending on the operator's setting.) Points are also 
given in what seems like set time intervals (like every 10 hours the game is on 
or maybe even every day since there is an internal clock, 100 exp is added.) 
This is so that even a machine in a smaller place will eventually get the 
characters unlocked. Hitting the service trigger to cheat this system works, 
sorry about me saying it didn't before. Every 400 exp raises the Lv.(level) by 1 
and does something.

  Lv.1    400 Exp - Marvel character gets unlocked
  Lv.2    800 Exp - gold box around a random character
  Lv.3   1200 Exp - gold box
  Lv.4   1600 Exp - Capcom character gets unlocked
  Lv.5   2000 Exp - gold box
  Lv.6   2400 Exp - gold box
  Lv.7   2800 Exp - Marvel character get unlocked
  Lv.8   3200 Exp - gold box
  ...
  Lv.25 10000 Exp - Block 2 Marvel character gets unlocked
  ...
  Lv.49 19600 Exp - Block 3 Marvel character gets unlocked
  ...
  Lv.73 29200 Exp - Block 4 Capcom character gets unlocked
  ...
  Lv.84 33600 Exp - final gold box

So basically you get Marvel character, gold box, gold box, Capcom character, 
gold box, gold box, Marvel character, ect. There seems to be an order to the 
unlocking of characters. First the characters in block 1 are unlocked 
(alternating between Marvel and Capcom characters) and then 2 and so on. Block 4 
starts with a Capcom character instead and they just appear in a previously 
blank area in the corners. The unlocked characters just become selectable on the 
selection screen without any notice or message.

The full select screen will look something like this:

          Felicia - Megaman - M.Bison - Psylocke - Rogue - Thanos
          Jill    - Guile   - Amingo  - Cyclops - Magneto - War Machine
    Ken - T.Bonne - Ryu    - Sonson - Marrow  - Wolvie - SilverSam - Sabretooth
Charlie - Akuma  - Zangief - Ruby Heart - Cable - Iceman - Gambit - Blackheart
Dhalsim - Jin     - Anakaris - Hayato - Cap.Amer - Spidey - Juggernaut - Spiral
    Dan - Sakura  - Morrigan - B.B.Hood - Dr.Doom - Venom - Bonerine - Colossus
          Cammy - Strider - Cap.Com - Shuma Gorath - Hulk - Ironman
          Servbot - Roll    - Chun-Li - Omega Red - Storm - Sentinal

     B. What does those gold boxes around the characters mean?

     The gold boxes mean that the character now has two more color that can be 
chosen (with the Assist buttons.) Whoopee! In other words, the gold boxes are 
generally useless.

     C. Hidden/alternate stages

     No word on any of the stages that are in the DC version being unlocked in 
any arcades so far. 


3. What's changed?

     A lot...

     A. Attacks buttons

     Jab     Fierce    Assist 1 
      _         _         _
     (_)       (_)       (_)
      _         _         _
     (_)       (_)       (_)
    Short  Roundhouse  Assist 2

     The biggest change is the new setup of the buttons. If you don't know yet, 
the Strong and Forward buttons are gone and are now the Fierce and Roundhouse. 
In place of Fierce and Roundhouse are the assist button, Assist 1 and Assist 2. 
Most are guessing the main reason for this change was to conform to the standard 
Dreamcast controllers, which were horrid for playing MvC. Another reason may be 
that doing allowed for Capcom to put things into the game like Snapback and 
assist characters, without having players worry about hitting the wrong two 
buttons. The change isn't too bad, most players adapted after a few games.
     The Strong and Forward attacks can still be done, usually inside a combo. 
This is because the Jab and Short also double as Strong and Forward. Strider for 
example can hit Jab-Short-Jab-Short-Fierce-Roundhouse and the second time the 
Jab and Short are hit his Strong and Forward from MvC will come out. For a 
character like Ryu who had a Weak to Strong chain, pressing Jab-Short would 
result in a Jab-Forward coming out for him, because he can't chain a Short after 
his Jab. 
     So for most characters, doing the 'full' air combo would now require 
launching and then hitting Jab-Short-Jab-Short-Finisher.
     Some of those who have launchers that is either Strong or Forward can also 
do them by holding down-forward on the controller and hitting either Fierce or 
Roundhouse, depending on what your character has for a launcher. And if your 
character's old launcher was either a Strong or Forward like Zangief's then you 
done have to chain into their launcher.

     B. Assist Buttons
     Remember how in Marvel vs. Street Fighter you can call your partner to 
assist you with Strong + Forward? Well, that's what the main use of the Assist 
buttons are for. As you all should know by now, there are 3 characters on your 
team. After picking each of your character, you are given a choice of 3 assist 
types. Some of these are pretty obvious (Projectile type, Anti-Air type, Dash 
type, Heal type, ect.) Others such as Variety type, Expansion type and Balance 
type, are less descriptive in what they are (Expansion is 'movement' in the 
Japanese import.) After you pick them, you cannot change them until you lose and 
choose your team again. With the Assist buttons you call your first character 
under the main life bar out with Assist 1 and the bottom character with Assist 
2. This can be used at almost any time you can do a special move except while 
you are Super Jumping. This mean you can do it while sitting back charging with 
Guile, while you are in the middle of a chain combo, anytime you can buffer into 
something, right as you are jumping at or over an opponent, ect. After using an 
Assist, you have to wait for the 'Assist OK' over the assist character you had 
just used to go away before calling another assist or switching out with that 
character. I don't think you can ever have all three characters on screen at the 
same time except during a Triple Hyper Combo. Using your assists characters is 
one of the key thing you most likely will have to be good at to be good at this 
game. Be careful though, your assist character seems to take extra damage when 
hit, but all done to them is red (aka recoverable) damage. But they cannot be 
thrown (or autocomboed?) I know Jill's Tyrant super fails after the initial hit, 
but Maximum Spider worked. There is a limit of one assist during a combo.
          a. Snapback
          QCF + Assist 1 or 2 will do your character's Snapback attack. You will 
have a light effect coming from you as you do a normal move. This uses up one 
super level and is a blockable attack that if connects will force your 
opponent's current character out and force in another character, depending on 
which Assist button you used (Assist 1 to force his middle character in, Assist 
2 to force his bottom character in.) The character forced out is also unusable 
for the opponent until the red 'X' over the life bar has gone away. Some 
characters can combo these in. These may also becoming important as we learn 
more about the game and may become one of the main ways to stop people from 
overusing their assist characters.
          b. Duo/Triple Hyper Combo
          Pressing both Assist 1 and Assist 2 may do either a super, duo super, 
or triple super. It will make use of as many characters and super meter as it 
can. If you have only 1 character left and 5 levels of meter you get a regular 
super since there are no more characters left to do more, if you have all three 
characters but only 1 level of super meter you still get a regular super because 
you don't have enough meter to do more. If you have 2 characters and 2 or more 
levels you'll get a Duo Super using 2 level of meter up. Having 3 characters and 
3 or more levels will allow you to do a Triple Super using 3 levels up. Doing 
these DO NOT switch your character out like it did in the previous versus games. 
These generally do not do enough damage to warrant the use of 3 levels, as you 
do not switch your character out. Also, the supers you do depend on which assist 
type you picked for your characters. Doing these does get rid of your partners 
red life since they do not really switch in.

     C. How do you switch characters?
     Hitting Jab + Short will tag out your character and tag in you middle 
character. Hitting Fierce + Roundhouse will tag in your bottom character. 
Tagging in has been made fairer now. Where in MvC a blocked tag in usually meant 
eating a super and hitting with your tag in only resulted in a little damage 
done. Now if you hit with your opponent with a tag in, they get popped up 
allowing you to combo them. They can roll out once they hit the ground so it's 
best to hit them before then (duh.)
     To switch the starting character before a match, hold either Assist 1 to 
switch with your middle character or Assist 2 to switch with the bottom 
character when the screen showing you and your opponent's characters in a 
hexagon right before the match.
          a. Delayed Hyper Combo (DHC)
          I put this under here because this is probably the best way for you to 
tag in characters in this game. To do this, while you are doing a super (it can 
be anytime from when you start it until the background changes back to normal.) 
Let's say you have Ryu, Morrigan, and Captain Commando (in that order). Ryu does 
his super fireball, anytime during it you can do QCF+PP to have Morrigan jump in 
and do her Soul Eraser or QCF+KK to have her do her Darkness Illusion. There are 
a few things to consider here, first off, you most likely would want to wait as 
long as possible before canceling to get the most out of Ryu's super. Then 
depending on how far the opponent is from you the Darkness Illusion may or may 
not connect. But you may want the Darkness Illusion over the Soul Eraser because 
you can cancel into CapCom's Captain Sword while she has them up there or maybe 
you want to do a Captain Storm after a Soul Eraser (Note: I'm not sure if these 
would actually connect, this is just a scenario I made up.) Some of these DHC's 
do insane damage (I know Guile-Captain America-Gambit has one that does 70-80% 
and 99% on Akuma and Strider.) These will most likely replace the duo team 
beating from MvC as the cheapest way to do damage. You can only do up to 3 super 
this way and Level 3 supers are included (this is probably why 5 levels of super 
is the max.) The last character doing this stays in and this will make the 
characters you use lose their red life as they do switch in, even to just do one 
super and switch back out.
          b. Crossover Counters (b, db, d + Assist 1 or 2)
          Another relatively safe way to switch your character. Works the same 
as previous, while blocking an attack do the motion (the assist button you use 
determines who comes out, Assist 1 for your middle character and Assist 2 for 
your bottom character) and you character will tag out and your partner will come 
and do an attack. The assist type you pick determines what the character does 
for their counter. And yes, these can be super cancelled into supers.

     D. Misc.
     Super canceling from the PSX EX games are now doable. Just do a special 
move and before the character recovers do that character's super. Push blocking 
is now done with the 2 Punch buttons along with the various dashes. There is no 
Easy Mode to pick from anymore (or at least the default settings don't have it.) 
Throws are harder to do off someone's jump-in attack. The announcer is very 
reminiscent of the Alpha 3 announcer. The music for the game is jazzy, elevator 
music sounding. The backgrounds are awesome, too bad it only make the characters 
look so much worse in comparison. You play 7 stages against the computer before 
reaching Abyss. There is only one universal ending for all characters. There are 
also no win quotes or pose points. The computer will use the hidden characters 
once they are unlocked, but not before.

     A. New characters

        a. Amingo
        Moves:
           Daiti no Kodomo (Child of Ground) (grab): QCB + K
           Daiti no Kodomo (Child of Ground) (attack): QCF + K
           Midori no Kanki (Joy of Green): QCB + P
           Kaze no Sakeb (Scream of Wind): QCF + P (air)
        Supers:
           Shokubutsu no Okite (Law of Vegetation): QCB + PP
           Taiyou no Megumi (Sun's Blessing): QCF + KK
        Assists:
           A-Heal Type: Life Up vegetable, slow / Taiyou no Megumi
           B-Enhance Type: Defense Up (Defense: 50% damage) / Taiyou no Megumi
           C-Balance Type: Midori no Kanki / Taiyou no Megumi
        Launcher: C.Strong and C.Forward
        Snapback: S.Fierce
        Ground Chain: Weak to Strong
        Air Chain:
        Super Jump Chain: Hunter
        Colors (Hat/Pants):
           Jab: Blue/Yellow      Fierce: Red/Blue       A1: Purple/Yellow
           Short: Purple/Brown   Roundhouse: Blue/Red   A2: Red/Yellow
     His beanstalk super connects after his launchers. His maraca super seems 
useless for now as it does little damage, is blockable and is kind of slow. He 
drops a plant on the ground and it goes across the screen. Supposedly if mashed 
right, it does a lot of damage (no confirmation on this yet.) His normals are 
good as they have good range and hit multiple times.


        b. Anakaris
        Moves:
           Coffin Fall: d, d + P or K (air)
           Cobra Blow: b, f + P (air)
           Mummy Drop: QCF + P (air)
           Royal Curse: QCF + K in air
        Supers:
           Pharaoh Magic: Roundhouse, Jab, d, Short, Fierce
           Pharaoh Coffin Fall: d, d + PP
           Pharaoh Illusion: Jab, Jab, f, Short, Fierce
           Pharaoh Cobra Blow: b, f + PP
        Assists:
           A-Ground Type: Cobra Blow / Pharaoh Cobra Blow
           B-Throw Type: Mummy Drop / Pharaoh Illusion
           C-Variety Type: Coffin Fall / Pharaoh Coffin Fall
        Launcher: C.Fierce
        Snapback: S.Fierce
        Colors:
           Jab: Yellow/Blue   Fierce: Green            A1: Brown
           Short: Pink/Red    Roundhouse: Red/Yellow   A2: Monochrome
     Still have not gotten the hang of this guy. His Pharaoh Coffin Fall seems 
useless. His Pharaoh Cobra Blow is nice as it does really good damage if you 
know how to use it. Timing the button presses is key to getting the most of out 
this super. The four attack buttons control the four heights in which the cobras 
come out and you can only have two coming out at the same time, so try sending 
them out so some are retracting. His Pharaoh Illusion causes him to go into the 
background and you control his hands by using the attack buttons. Jab make the 
left hand hit sideways, Fierce makes the right hand hit sideways, Short makes 
the left hand hit downward and Roundhouse makes the right hand hit downward. You 
can still be hit in the head while in this super. Weird character when compared 
to the rest of the cast. Royal Curse turns everybody into the same thing; a 
small, very defenseless straw doll. Potential traps there.


        c. B.B. Hood
        Moves:
           Smiling Missile: Charge b, f + P or K
           Happy Missile: Charge d, u + P or K
           Shy Strike: QCB + P
           Cheer of Fire: DP + P (air)
        Supers:
           Cruel Hunting: QCF + PP
           Beautiful Memory: HCF + KK
           Apple For You: HCB + KK
        Assists:
           A-Projectile Type: Smiling Missile / Cruel Hunting
           B-Anti-Air Type: Cheer of Fire / Cruel Hunting
           C-Variety Type: Shy Strike / Cruel Hunting
        Launcher: S.Forward
        Snapback: f, f + Fierce
        Ground Chain: Hunter
        Air Chain: 
        Super Jump Chain: Hunter
        Colors:
           Jab: Red      Fierce: Purple      A1: Dk. Blue
           Short: Blue   Roundhouse: White   A2: Black
     She can double jump. Her Cruel Hunting does massive block damage if you can 
hit with the top portion of it. Fierce is good for jumping in on and her 
Roundhouse attacks are landmines that have good range and knocks the opponent 
away. Jab, and Short Smiling Missile makes for very good pressure. Not sure if 
she's better as a keep away character or offensive character.


        d. Cable
        Moves:
           Viper Beam: QCF + P (air)
           Psimitar: DP + P
           Electro Trap: QCB + K (air)
           Psy Charge: HCB + P
           Crack Down: QCF + K

     Primary a keep away character thanks to the long recovery after his 
projectile attacks. His Fierce make him shoot his gun, which can be canceled 
into Viper Beam, which if hits can be super canceled into his Hyper Viper for 
insane damage. The air version of his Hyper Viper is much better than the ground 
version as there is almost no start-up and recovery (see DHCable combo on 
www.shoryuken.com.) Probably the fastest super in the game if done right.

     All of Guile's super can be comboed into. On the ground you can chain 
anything into S.Fierce or S.Roundhouse into either super, preferably Sonic 
Hurricane. For his air combo he can connect with all 6 hits or can go into his 
air super. I use to do it after a Jab-Short-Strong-Forward chain, but it being 
blocked 25% of the time and he being open afterwards I just try do finish the 
chain which does almost the same damage and leads to an OTG in the corner. He 
can OTG after his Roundhouse air throw. His Somersault Kick, if blocked usually 
knocks the opponent too far away for them to hit him before he recovers. By far 
one of the better and very balanced character in the game so far.

     Think Strider mixed with Ryu. Not too great as his moves have enough 
recovery time for opponent to counter. Decent reach, thanks to his sword. Plasma 
Field makes him turns bluish for a limited time and it gives him the ability to 
use supers without using meter when the bubble hits the opponent. This can be 
comboed in after his air combo-Guren. He can even do his Level 3 with less than 
3 levels while it is in effect.

     Mostly a pixie character though you can kind of set up a Captain Commando-
like keep away game with her 'helpers.' She can combo into her charging super 
very easily on the ground and in the air after most moves. She has no limit on 
how many 'helper' attackers are on screen, so if you want she can have the dog, 
bird, a zombie, and an assist character onscreen at the same time. Her Grenade 
Launcher isn't much of a projectile and is more so anti-air. Her Rocket Launcher 
works kind of like Proton Cannon where if it hits as she brings it out, it'll 
connect fully, otherwise it is very avoidable (she even falls back afterwards 
like Chun-Li does in Pocket Fighter.) Her Tyrant super is insanely hard to hit 
with as you have to have the opponent the right distance from you, on or very 
close to the ground and not blocking. Right afterwards, you can do her Rocket 
Launcher to hit Tyrant into the opponent for a little more damage. Her zombies 
along with her animal attacks can be hit down, in fact you, your animal, and 
your assist character can knock your zombie over and it'll stay on the ground 
for a bit grabbing the opponent if they get near just like they do in the 
ResEvil series. Her zombies come in from behind you and keep moving forward 
really slowly. She can OTG after her Roundhouse either into Close Combat A or 
Short-C.Fierce-AC. Her Fierce Close Combat A can be charged much like Megaman's 
Mega Buster. Not really worth it as she loses her launcher and gets more 
recovery after the move. Holding down the button after the Grenade Launcher 
increases the range of it.

bit and allows her to zone. Not that great as she doesn't really have anything 
damaging.

     Her Schwarzalle and Hyper Schwarzalle can be redirected with a direction + 
P (up to 2 times for regular and I think 5 times for super.) Try to control it 
so you land safely. Fantome's ghost will suck away your opponent's super energy 
if it touches them. Her Tooru Do Maji is when she drops a barrel on you. It 
seems to be 'timing' super where you have to hit the right buttons at the right 
time to get the max damage out of it.

     Wow, and you thought Roll was small. It is not as small as it looks as some 
moves that looks like it should miss, don't on it. Almost no range what-so-ever 
on most attacks and even worst, he does almost no damage on his attacks. What 
Servbot does for his Lunch Rush depends on what his assist is. A Type gives you 
the regular Lunch Rush, B Type gives you the stepwise drop of Servbots and C 
Type gives you the Servbot Legion which does very good chipping damage, more 
than it would do if it had hit. Really you can only run and build meter/recover 
your other characters with him.

     Money King super can do a lot of block damage with her fire breath. The 
stick super will hit the opponent with the stick on the way up. POW, well, it 
can be use against jump-ins but is risky otherwise very hard to connect and does 
too little damage.

     Her Command Shot is slow in coming out and if it hits, holds the opponent 
in place for a bit. Lunch Rush works kind of like Command Shot where she shoots 
the opponent to lock them in place for the rush. If you have her Throw Type 
assist, do it by doing a team super (Assist 1 + Assist 2) instead of QCF + PP, 
because the serve bots will come out even if you don't hit the opponent with the 
gun. A lot of her normals are like Jin's where they seem like special moves.

     But can play a good keep away game. Could have been of the better character 
as he has easy to do damaging combos (C.Short-C.Forward-Roundhouse hurricane 
kick-super air fireball) and can run. Too bad he takes so much damage. He has 
his hurricane kick super from the SF3 series (QCF + KK) but is useless.

     Move list is unchanged from MvSF. He loses his Strong and Forward attacks 
at will which were apparently some of his best moves. Inferno assist is very 
good, a slower version of Captain Corridor that tracks the opponent. Surprising 
one of the better characters in the game with his jumping roundhouses able to 
keep most characters under pressure.

     Pretty much can be played the same as his MvC counterpart except for losing 
the S.Strong as anti-air. No ground level Shield Slash, Jab version goes strait 
ahead. His Jabx3 -> double jump air combo is still there; just that you have to 
time the Jabs now or else his Strong comes out. Still has Short-Forward-Hyper 
Stars and Stripes. His Dash Type assist is great for countering beam traps.

     Seems to play the same but it looks like he is easier to get in on now that 
you can abuse assist characters. S.Roundhouse into Captain Sword still works 
along with Captain Storm into Captain Sword. Comboing into the Captain Storm 
after a C.Fierce is much easier. The Captain Corridor assist is hella good. He 
still has the Kick Throw glitch from MvC, only it is now also doable on a human 
opponent.

     Old df + Roundhouse is now db + Roundhouse. Her head stomp is jump d + 
Roundhouse. This sucks, as you have to think about what you are doing before 
sticking out a low Roundhouse. You can no longer chain a Fierce or Roundhouse 
after her head stomp. Her air super from MvC seems to be gone now. Fierce no 
longer combos into her Senretsu Kyaku. All in all sucks now that she doesn't 
have much for damaging combos. With assists she might have something. Just call 
out assist while airborn with her as she can triple jump, air dash and head 
stomp.

     He's much improved over his MvSF counterpart; Mega Optic Blast does great 
block damage again and can be done in air now with him slowly falling during it. 
Supposedly another good character because of his keep away game with assists and 
his J.Roundhouse. Iceman kills him, as Iceman takes no block damage from most of 
his attacks.

     His Sphere Flame combos after his launcher. His Electric Cage looks sort of 
like Chun-Li's super puffball only it moves forward as a small fireball and then 
gets bigger when it hits. His Molecular Shield is one of the best assist in the 
game. In fact he is one of the best character in the game. Super jumping Photon 
Shot is just too good if used right.

     His C.Fierce launcher is better and his Gamma Charge has also improved. 
Comparable to how he was in MSF. Gamma Crush hurts really bad now if it hits 
fully.

     No block damage from most 'energy' projectile attacks along with a few 
other moves, another insane keep away game (starting to see pattern here?), and 
a fast dash is making him one of the best characters so far. He only seems to 
have one super, Arctic Attack (QCF + PP) but it can be easily combo off his air 
combo or S.Fierce. Ice Beam is a very good assist as it nullifies any of you 
opponent's and their assist's projectiles. Ice Fist causes your punches to do 
more damage and block damage if blocked. Breaks after it hits or is blocked 
three times.

     Use him over War Machine as his Repulsor Blast and Proton Cannon is much 
better. He cannot chain after the knee dive. Unibeam comes out fast and has good 
recovery.

     He is better because his air Roundhouse drill attack hit more times making 
them safer. He can combo into his Saotome Cyclone after his launcher. C.Strong-
Blodia Punch is still there but is harder to connect. I like his Saotome Typhoon 
assist, a lot.

     Headcrush comes out fast and does great damage. Almost anything bigger than 
a Jab or Short blocked, mean a Headcrush. If you can, mash it for the 8 hits. 
It's hard to do but the damage is well worth it. There's is a glitch involving 
his Power-Up where if you switch out while still in it, he will keep it for the 
rest of the round or until he Power-up's again and uses it normally. Pretty 
nasty bug.

     His dash is fast, probably the fastest in the game. His Force Field move is 
a counterattack like Cammy's and Jill's. It you hit him, he'll do a one hit

     Energy Drain still gives you back more life than you have in red, but it is 
really little. His supers have been changed in their motion to QCB + PP for 
both. QCF + PP gives you the coil that goes upward. The same applies for his 
kick attack; QCF + KK goes upward. One of the better characters in the game. Can 
charge the super meter fast with canceled Omega Strikes and Roundhouses.

     From those who used her in MSH, they say she is a lot faster. Dash in with 
her C.Short. That move has insane range and priority. She can do the full Hunter 
series into her C.Fierce launcher on almost everybody. Then super cancel her Psi 
Blade into her Kochou Gakure to finish her air combos. Her Ninjitsu Teleport 
only goes to 4 places on the screen now.

     No longer does the opponent's move when she absorbs their powers. She now 
gets enhancements, such as Power Up (Offense 125%) from Juggernaut and Hulk, or 
Speed Up from Wolverine. Supposedly annoying when she has Speed enhancement. She 
also has Meter Up, Life Up, and Defense Up (Defense 50% damage). She has a semi-
infinite while she has Speed-up. As I found out the hard way, she can be down 
right nasty when played right (SJ -> Divekick (air d + Roundhouse.)

     No more mode switching now that Akuma and Ken are in the game. He is a bit 
faster. Still has his Fierce into super fireball. Air comboing into the super 
fireball is also easier to do. His Snapback is his overhead, slow but has to be 
blocked high.

     Has super armor. He also seems to have some pretty sick combos in the 
corner with Fierce Rocket Punches and Hyper Sentinel Forces. Can play a game of 
trading hits as he takes the least damage (normally) and does the most. One of 
the top characters in the game. He can dominate the ground very easier and his 
speed while in Flight is insanely fast.

     The Shuriken and Triple Shuriken chips for good damage. Lightning gives him 
more speed and allows him to do the Triple Shuriken in the air. Fire gives him 
more power and QCF + KK will do a rising fire column. Ice gives him armor and 
QCF + KK will do a ground ice super which has to be blocked low and freezes the 
opponent allowing you to hit afterwards. His Sword Modes affect the damage does 
and he takes as indicated by 'O' for offense and 'D' for defense.

     Easier to use than she was in XSF. Hail Storm is very nice in hurting 
assist characters while staying safe. Her S.Roundhouse has great range and 
priority. You can use her Lightning Attack to fly around the screen. Whirlwind 
eats up many things including Doom's rocks. One of the best character in the

     Ohh, let's see... now that the Strong and Forward buttons are gone, he can 
no longer poke with those. His S.Fierce and S.Roundhouse now knocks the enemy up 
a bit and away so his Gram no longer connects afterwards. His Ouroboros does not 
last as long and you cannot do a super while in it, except maybe DHC during the 
start-up, which is mostly a waste. He has a lot more recovery after Legion. One 
can now easily Super Jump over the whole thing and land behind him with time to 
hit him. A lot of people say that his assists all suck, but someone here manage 
to do well with his teleport kick assist, just make sure you keep his ass 
covered afterwards cause he take damage like Akuma. He can now attack on the way 
after he does his punch Warps. He's good in this game even after all that 
they've took away from him; he just has to be played differently than MvC.

     Seems to be better as his Venom Fang seems to do more damage. His Alpha 
assist is mad cheasy, just make sure to cover him when he taunts after he does 
it. His air combo is harder to do for some reason, I don't know what I'm doing 
wrong. He is supposedly easier to play now. Can combo Venom Bite after 
S.Forward.

           Short: Blue/White   Roundhouse: Dk. Blue/White   A2: Dk. Grey/White
     He has the moves of GWM from MvC (missiles instead of beams.) Much faster 
on this projectile attacks. No more canceling Fierce or Roundhouse after the 
knee dive.

       oo. Wolverine
        Moves:
           Berserker Barrage: QCF + P
           Berserker Slash: QCB + P
           Tornado Claw: DP + P

           Weapon X: DP + PP
           Fatal Claw: QCF + KK
           Berserker Rage: QCF + KK
        Assists:
           A-Expansion Type: Berserker Barrage - Berserker Barrage X
           B-Anti-Air Type: Tornado Claw / Fatal Claw
           C-Dash Type: Drill Claw / Fatal Claw
        Launcher: S.Roundhouse
        Snapback: S.Fierce
        Colors (Gloves & Boots):
           Jab: Blue    Fierce: Purple         A1: Green
           Short: Tan   Roundhouse: Lt. Blue   A2: Dk. Purple
     Ouch, he has lost a lot. He is slower, his Drill Claw is slower, it is much 
harder to combo into his supers (Jab-Short-Strong-BBX seems to be it for now), 
his dive kick no longer cancels into Roundhouse nor another divekick. He can 
still pressure, but the rewards are not as high anymore and with assist 
characters the risks are greater.

       pp. Wolverine-2 (aka LAW, Bonerine)
        Moves:
           Berserker Barrage: QCF + P
           Tornado Claw: DP + P (air)
           Drill Claw: Short + Fierce (air)
        Supers:
           Berserker Barrage X: QCF + PP
           Weapon X: DP + PP
        Assists:
           A-Ground Type: S.Fierce
           B-Launcher Type: S.Roundhouse
           C-Variety Type: df + Fierce
        Launcher: S.Roundhouse
        Snapback: S.Fierce
        Colors(Gloves & Boots):
           Jab: Blue    Fierce: Brown       A1: Dk. Purple
           Short: Tan   Roundhouse: Black   A2: Dk. Brown
     He loses some moves (Fatal Claw, Berserker Claw, and Berserker Rage) and 
gains the ability to do Tornado Claw in air. He has better range on his Jab 
thanks to his longer claws, C.Forward does not knock down and his dive kick is 
XvSF style. If you like flashier combos, go with this Wolverine.

           A-Ground Type: Lariat / Hyper Lariat
           B-Throw Type: Running Bear Grab / Hyper Lariat
           C-Air Throw Type: Aerial Russian Slam / Hyper Lariat
        Launchers: C.Strong, QCB + Jab
        Snapback: S.Fierce
        Colors:
           Jab: Red      Fierce: Pink        A1: White w/black skin
           Short: Blue   Roundhouse: Black   A2: Yellow w/black skin
     He no longer has his Triple Option. If you don't know what that is then you 
shouldn't be using him in the first place. His old Strong throw is now a command 
motion (QCB + Jab.) But missing it means getting his Elbow Drop. His Screw Pile 
Driver does a lot more damage, about 20-30%, but with a game full of unlimited 
helpers that cannot be thrown, he is gonna have a hard time getting in to do it. 
When he is in his Iron Body mode, he is much quicker now versus older games. And 
his Hyper Lariat that he does during team supers is doable. Just press both 
Assist buttons when you only have 1 level of super meter or when he is the last 
character.


C. Abyss
     From what I can remember people saying, he is one of the sons of Apocalypse 
and appeared during the War of the Gems saga. This may be wrong as he apparently 
doesn't look anything like that Abyss and may in fact be a Capcom creation for 
this game. Abyss comes in 3 forms and each has hyper armor. His first form is 
kind of like Onslaught's first form but much slower and telegraphs his attacks. 
He has moves like Onslaught (the charge, the beam) and a hail storm-like attack. 
After he is defeated, he melts into a small green thing which mostly uses 
projectile attacks and unblockable bubbles that trap you and will catch you off 
guard once in a while as you attack him. His third form is kind of like a huge 
Venom as he does his Venom Fang and creepy as he is the stage and will keep 
going offscreen. The black ball floating around is hittable. This form is easy 
if you have a super that hit for a lot (like beams) and can connect with it.
