I. Introduction
--------------------------------------------------------------


  Over the past couple of months I've become a complete Marvel vs Capcom 
2 maniac. I've searched far and wide for any news what so ever on Marvel vs 
Capcom 2. I've seen a million screen shots, about 30 movies, a few wallpapers 
(I have an awesome one on my comp now) and have read as many previews and 
reviews and other stuff. I've even read all the other character FAQ's on this 
site before I even thought of making my own. But I just felt I needed to 
contribute to the greatness of M vs C 2. So I did it through GameFAQ's with a 
few character FAQs. The first two people I did character FAQ's on were Thanos 
and Cable. Now for the next character. Like I mentioned in the Thanos FAQ I 
always thought that the genetic freaks were the coolest and one of the only 
people that weren't freaks that I thought were cool was Cable. But everyone 
has a favorite Shotokan. Whether it's Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Dan, even Sakura, you 
must have a favorite Shotokan (I know there not all Shotokans but im basing 
it on there type of moves). Now I know a lot of people don't like Ken and a 
lot of people describe Ken as "just another Ryu clone" but the way I look at 
it, Ken is an underdog. He's been through it all, and he has managed to 
follow Ryu every step of the way and develop his own move set. So that's why 
(along with the fact that Ken, Cable and Thanos is my team) for my next 
character FAQ 
I will be doing Ken.

III. Legend
--------------------------------------------------------------


  My legend is a bit different from most other FAQ's but I find it a lot 
easier. Some other FAQ's that I read and printed out had the legend take 
up an entire page so I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. I don't 
use QCF, QCB, etc. for down forward moves. I doubt anyone is actually goona 
press down, take a 1 second pause and then press forward and a punch/kick.

   Brief History - Born on Valentine's Day of 1965, Ken Masters entered
                   planet Earth. Luckily for him, he was born into an
                   extremely rich family, and got whatever he wanted. But
                   as he got older, he became spoiled and abused his money.
                   He would cut school and spend all his money, buying 
                   whatever he wanted to. So his father decided to send him 
                   to Japan to a man named Gouken, who would put Ken in his 
                   place. Ken was given strict rules, and was punished if he 
                   didn't obey them which he was not used to. But along the 
                   way he met his future best friend and rival, Ryu. Ryu and 
                   Ken trained together in the art of Shotokan and fought 
                   each other to test there skills. Then one day they were 
                   invited to a "King of Street Fighter's Tournament" to see 
                   who the best fighter in the world was. Both did well, and 
                   Ken was convinced that he could win but his bragging and 
                   taunting didn't pay off when Ryu beat him and then 
                   continued on to beat Sagat for the title (im way too much 
                   into wrestling). Ken couldn't understand why he was 
                   beaten, but urged him to train even harder for the battles 
                   to come. During his training, he met his future wife, 
                   Eliza. Ken, still pissed about his loss at the tournament, 
                   felt ready to challenge Ryu and did so. In the end, it 
                   turned out that Ken (controversially) beat Ryu after he 
                   fell down a hill during the fight. To heal the cut on his 
                   forehead, Ken took a ribbon from his ponytail and wrapped 
                   it around Ryu's forehead, which Ryu still wears to this 
                   day. Obviously, Ken was cocky from his victory over Ryu 
                   and decided to get married to Eliza. But the next time Ryu
                   and Ken fought it would be along side each other fighting 
                   arch enemies such as M. Bison (Vega for the Japanese) and 
                   Akuma (Gouki for the Japanese)..... OK so it's not so 
                   brief but who cares?

Character Description
-----------------------------

- I know that 99 percent of all people who visit this site know exactly
  what Ken looks like but im doing a character description anyway. Anyone
  who dies, gets sick or is seriously offended by this can e-mail me with
  a reason why. Being that said on to the character description......

Real Name - Ken Masters
Alias - None
Height - 5 foot 11
Weight - 180 lbs.
Hair - Blond
Eyes - ??? 
     - Im not really sure about this one. In all the games they make his
       eyes black, but they're obviously not. While im at it there's another
       thing I wanted to point out. Ken's eyebrows are black as well. This
       either means Ken dyed his hair blond, dyed his eyebrows black, or
       that Capcom just wanted it that way. Im guessing it's the third one.
Clothing - Ken wears the typical Shotokan Karate gi (That's not a typo it
           is indeed spelt "gi") with along with Ryu has made a fashion
           trend among the Street Fighter world. Characters wearing the
           gi besides Ryu and Ken are Akuma, Dan and the pathetic Sean.
           Ken's gi is red with a black belt (The highest karate honor.
Body - 1. Play any wrestling game with a create a player mode
       2. Add a red karate outfit with a black belt
       3. Add long blond hair
       4. There you have it

V. Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------


This is pretty much a review of Ken. I will go through the six deciding 
factors that make up a character (offense, defense, power, speed, recovery 
and comboability) and give them each a score from 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest 
and 10 being the highest) followed by an overall score.


Offense - 8.5 - Although Ken isn't the master of disaster, his offense is
                good and in my opinion better than Ryu's because Ken's
                Hurricane Kick and Dragon Punch is better than Ryu's where
                as Ryu only has a better Fireball. Anyway, Ken's fireball
                could use some work but this Hurricane Kick and Dragon Punch
                attacks and hyper combos totally make up for his lack of
                a good projectile. In conclusion, Ken takes home an 8.5.


Defense - 7.5 - Average. Apparently Gouken was a lot more focused on 
                offense when he trained the Shotokan's. Not to say that 
                Ken's defense is bad but it could use some improvement. 
                A lot of his moves leave him wide open (his Triple Dragon
                Punch when blocked is a perfect setup for a vertical super
                (Jin, Hulk, Amingo) and his Super Dragon Punch if missed 
                is a good setup for an air beam super. In conclusion his
                defense is good but nothing special.... 7.5.
                  

Power - 7.5 - Just in case there's any confusion over power and offense, 
              power is the strength and damage done by the moves and offense 
              is the arsenal of moves you have (Ex: Spider-Man and Wolverine
              have good offense but not so great power). Anyway, this is 
              another average for Ken. He's pretty strong considering his 
              size but he isn't any Juggernaut and really doesn't have any 
              good power moves. In conclusion, average. 7.5.

  
Speed - 8.5 - Ryu maybe just a little stronger than Ken, but Ken definitely
              has speed and the most blatant form of it is through his 
              Hurricane Kick attacks and supers. Besides that, he walks
              and dashes slightly faster than Ryu and does the Dragon Punch
              quicker as well. In conclusion, Ken is pretty much the fastest
              Shotokan and is also faster than most people is Marvel vs
              Capcom 2 and takes home an 8.5.

              
Recovery - 7 - Im being really generous with a 7. For the most part, most
               of his moves have recovery time. When he does a fireball
               he holds his hand out for 2 seconds after the fireball is
               thrown. When he does a Dragon Punch it can be easily set
               up into a vertical super. Ditto for the Triple Dragon
               Punch. In conclusion, Ken barely escapes with a 7.


Comboability - 8 - Pretty combo friendly in my opinion. Pretty much all
                   of his supers are great combo finishers and all of
                   his regular moves are great assists if you're trying
                   link your own supers. He can also pull off some pretty 
                   damn good exhibition combos thanks to James Chen and Mike 
                   Z. In conclusion, Ken Masters takes home his second 
                   highest score, 8.

                  
Overall - 8 - In a final conclusion, Ken is for the most part average.
              His power is average, his defense is average, his combo-
              ability is average, his recovery s average and his offense
              and speed are above average. In my opinion, a totally 
              average fighter is a 7 so that's why I gave him an 8 (Ok
              im pushing it a little but it's still a pretty decent score.
              Ken gets an 8 as a final score.

- Even a person who wants to become the ultimate mega Ken player in Marvel 
  vs Capcom 2 and does nothing but play with Ken in Marvel vs Capcom 2 24 
  hours a day, 7 days a week will not need a detailed description of his 
  regular moves but everyone else is doing it so I am too.

--------------------
LP / Jab
--------------------

- Standing - The classic useless button actually has a use in this game
             thanks to the addition of combos being the deciding factor 
             of every battle and even more use in Marvel vs Capcom 2 thanks
             to the deduction of the MP / Strong punch. Anyway, it's
             manditory for non-super combos and is as always good for
             mind games (Short Dragon Punches and slow Fireballs) but 
             other-wise a wussy punch.

- Jumping - The classic useless button actually has a use in this game
            thanks to the addition of combos being the deciding factor 
            of every battle and even more use in Marvel vs Capcom 2 thanks
            to the deduction of the MP / Strong punch. Anyway, it's
            manditory for non-super combos and is as always good for
            mind games (Short Dragon Punches and slow Fireballs) but 
            other-wise a wussy punch.

- Ducking - Pretty much the same thing as standing and jumping except
            worse because you can't do ducking specials. Ken's jab
            is stupid, has absolutely no reach, and is stupid.

--------------------
LK / Short
--------------------

--------------------
HP / Fierce
--------------------

- Standing - The driving force of all fighting games, the almighty fierce
             button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
             usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the flaming
             Dragon Punch, the fast fireball, and the Triple Dragon Punch.
             The only thing holding back Ken's fierce is his lack of reach.

- Jumping - The driving force of all fighting games, the almighty fierce
            button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
            usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the flaming
            Dragon Punch, the fast fireball, and the Triple Dragon Punch.
            The only thing holding back Ken's fierce is his lack of reach.

- Ducking - Always the oddball being less useful than it's standing and
            jumping counterparts can't seem to get it right. Tends to
            bully the jab button for being more useless than he is until
            Gouken breaks them up. I dont know why I just thought of that.

--------------------
HK / Roundhouse
--------------------

- Standing - Also a driving force of all fighting games, the almighty fierce
             button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
             usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the Hurricane
             Kick, the Super Dragon Punch and the Super Hurricane Kick.
             Even better is that is does not lack in reach and is good
             for stopping dashes. 

- Jumping - Also a driving force of all fighting games, the almighty fierce
            button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
            usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the Hurricane
            Kick, the Super Dragon Punch and the Super Hurricane Kick.
            Even better is that it does not lack in reach and is good for
            stopping jump-ins. I can still remember playing Super Street
            Fighter II and always countering Dee Jay's slow jumping kick
            with a quick jumping roundhouse.
     
- Ducking - The classic Shotokan sweep breaks away from it's punching
            counterparts by actually, although not as useful as it's
            standing and jumping counterparts, is useful. How? For
            sweeping of course.

Special Moves     
-----------------------------

    Fireball          - Down, Forward, Punch (air)
   (Hadouken)         - The classic fireball makes a triumphant return in
                        Marvel vs Capcom 2. Although it's not as good as 
                        Ryu's, it's still a decent projectile. It's does
                        about 7% damage on the average fighter but barely 
                        makes it across the screen. It's a pretty good helper
                        assist and like all projectiles can sometimes stop 
                        a cornering or jump in. Come to think of it this
                        the first projectile ever made in the history of 
                        fighting games and Ken has it. That has to be a 
                        plus in some way.
    
     Hurricane Kick       - Down, Back, Kick (air)
(Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku)  - Arguably the best Hurricane Kick in the game.     
                           
                            Definitely the fastest and stronger than Ryu's,
                            only Akuma's Lighting Hurricane Kick is even
                            a challenge to Ken's. The LK version of it can
                            go up to three hits and the HK version can go 
                            up to 5 hits. But that's not all, the Hurricane
                            Kick rises as you get more hits. But that's not
                            all, call within the next five minutes and get
                            some genuine LAABG (Lard and Artificial Bacon
                            Grease)......... That wasn't funny at all was
                            it. Didn't think so. Anyway the only downside 
                            to this is that it has a pretty decent recovery
                            time and if you do this move accidentally when
                            the opponent is at the other side of the screen,
                            prepare to get beamed. Big time.

    Dragon Punch          - Forward, Down, Forward, Punch (air)
   (Shouryuuken)          - Talk about classic. Pretty much the first move
                            along with the fireball to be invented and put
                            into a fighting game ever. Anyway, Ken without
                            a single doubt contains the best Dragon Punch
                            in the game. Why you ask? Lets see:
                          1. The LP version is quicker than Ryu and Akuma's
                          2. The HP version is the strongest one out of all
                             the Shotokan's
                          3. It can be done in the air
                          4. It can do multiple hits, and most importantly....
                          5. It's on fire


-----------------------------
Hyper Combos
-----------------------------

   Triple Dragon Punch   - Down, Forward, PP
     (Shouryuureppa)     - This move was actually first invented in Super
                           Street Fighter II, when they didn't even have
                           supers yet. I clearly remember always playing
                           as Ken and my toughest opponent not counting
                           bosses was none other than Ken. He'd be totally
                           cheap and sometimes he would do a jab Dragon
                           Punch immediately followed by a strong Dragon 
                           Punch immediately followed by a fierce Dragon
                           Punch. Anyway, this move is quite effective
                           if you land the whole thing but chances of that
                           are quite low. This is a very good move when
                           you're linking combos but if blocked, get ready
                           for a vertical super.
 
   Super Dragon Punch    - Down, Forward, KK
      (Shinryuuken)      - Ken sets up for a super like he usually does,
                           then rises up with a huge Dragon Punch with
                           the entire vertical column he's in on fire.
                           Awesome looking and effecting move and great
                           for combo finishers. But then you take the 
                           good with the bad. Well, the only thing
                           really bad with this move like most of his
                           moves is the recovery time. Anyone with an
                           air beam super can totally waste you if you
                           don't connect.

   Super Hurricane Kick  - Down, Back, KK
  (Shippu Jinrai Kyaku)  - Ken sets up for a super like he usually does,
                           and then like the move says, does a super
                           hurricane kick. He moves across the screen doing 
                           a series of spinning standing kicks followed 
                           by a regular hurricane kick. This move is most 
                           effective when done right next to the person, 
                           and looks really stupid when it totally misses. 
                           Awesome looking and effecting move and great for 
                           combo finishers. But then you take the good with 
                           the bad. Well, the only thing really bad with 
                           this move like most of his moves is the recovery 
                           time. Anyone with a vertical super can totally 
                           waste you if you don't connect.

   Hurricane Infinite   - (In corner) Jumping LP, LP, Hurricane Kick, 
                          Jumping LP, LP, Hurricane Kick, Jumping LP, 
                          LP, Hurricane Kick, Jumping LP, LP, Hurricane

                          LP, LP, Hurricane Kick...........
                        - Before I go any further the Hurricane Kick must
                          be used with LK other wise it wont work. Anyway,
                          as you have realized by now this is an infinite, 
                          and your friends will most likely punch you if
                          you do this too many times so my advice is to
                          only do this to the CPU. Also make sure you have
                          cornered your opponent and that he's not Kobun.
                          As for how it looks it two air punches followed 
                          by a Hurricane Kick followed by....... (I might
                          as well stop now)

- Thanks to Piccolo_0223 for the following combos

    Basic Air combo    - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Super Jump, LP, 
                         LK, LP, LK, HP
                       - Like the name of the combo it is pretty much a 
                         basic air combo. Ken rushes in with ducking punch
                         kick combination followed by a short and sweet air
                         combo. Nothing special but effective and easy to
                         do. Read on.....

- The following combos are just variations of the Basic Air combo so im not
  goona give a detailed explanation on the combos because it's the same thing
  with one or two different moves.


    Basic Air combo    - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Super Jump, LP, 
  (different version)    LK, LP, LK, HK


    Basic Air combo    - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Super Jump, LP, 
  (different version)    LK, LP, LK, HP, HK


    Basic Air combo    - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Super Jump, LP, 
  (different version)    LK, LP, LK, Hurricane Kick


    Basic Air combo    - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Super Jump, LP,
  (different version)    LK, LP, LK, LP, Dragon Punch (Using HP) (You have
                         to slow down the last couple of hits. Don't speed
                         dial other wise you'll screw up)


    Basic Air combo    - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Super Jump, LP, 
  (different version)    LK, LP, LK, HK

    1, 2, Shin-ru       - Dashing ducking LK, ducking HP, Shinryuuken 
                        - It rhymes............ Anyway, nothing special like
                          most of the combos on this Ken FAQ but contains a
                          super so gets it's own description. Just like the
                          name it's a 1, 2 combo. A ducking punch kick combo
                          followed by a Super Dragon Punch.


    Basic Ground Combo  - Dashing LP or LK, LK or LK, HP, Fireball (using HP) 
                        - Just like most of the above combo it's a basic
                          combo. A simple 1, 2 punch / kick combo followed
                          by a HP and a HP Hadouken. One thing you need to
                          know is that this will not work on extremely short
                          characters because the fierce won't connect. Also,
                          if you use LP the first time you have to use LK the
                          second time and vice verse.


    Hurricane Combo     - Dashing LP or LK, LK or LK, HP, Super Hurricane 
                          Kick
                        - Just like most of the above combo it's a basic
                          combo. A simple 1, 2 punch / kick combo followed
                          by a HP and a Super Hurricane Kick. One thing you
                          need to know is that this will not work on extremely
                          short characters because the fierce won't connect. 
                          Also, if you use LP the first time you have to use
                          LK the second time and vice verse. 


    Shouryuureppa       - Dashing LP or LK, LK or LK, HP, Super Hurricane 
                          Kick
                        - Just like most of the above combo it's a basic
                          combo. A simple 1, 2 punch / kick combo followed
                          by a HP and a Triple Dragon Punch. One thing you
                          need to know is that this will not work on extremely
                          short characters because the fierce won't connect. 
                          Also, if you use LP the first time you have to use
                          LK the second time and vice verse. 


   Dragon Combo         - (Really fast) Jumping LP, Jumping LP, Jumping HK,
                          (When I say jumping I mean do LP, LP, HK in one 
                          jump) LP, Ducking LK, Ducking LK, Fireball, 
                          Triple Dragon Punch, Super Dragon Punch, Jumping
                          LP, Jumping LP, Jumping HP, Jumping LK, (by now 
                          you should have landed) Jumping HP, Jumping LP,
                          Jumping LP, Jumping HK, 
                        - I did this combo in my sleep...... Anyway, this
                          is by far the best and hardest Ken combo I have 
                          ever seen and is obviously only for experts. Also 
                          Obviously, James Chen was the only person who 
                          managed to pull this off so let me run it down. 
                          Ken first leaps into action with 2 jumping punches 
                          and a jumping kick followed by two ducking kicks 
                          and a fireball. Then Ken really deals out the 
                          damage with a Triple Dragon Punch into a Super 
                          Dragon Punch followed by a similar quick combo.
