First of all, I would like to clarify that I am not an expert player of 
Virtua Fighter series... I just like this game a LOT :) This reference 
material is free for personal use and I hope you'll find it useful.

Please do not hesitate to email to me at DuelMasterNG@yahoo.com should you
have any suggestion.


Cheers :)

P/s. Don't forget to send USD1 to my paypal account, ngcheechong@netscape.net
     ... just joking (but I don't mind if you really do so :p)

After two defeats at previous Tournaments, Lion returned home doubting his 
own abilities. Proud of his son despite his losses, Lion's father encouraged
him to return to training and helped him regain his pride. A few months
later, the invitation for the Fourth World Fighting Tournament arrived. With
renewed confidence, Lion left home, claiming, "I am the only one who will
win the championship!"
