===================
A.  WHY THE FAQ...? 
===================

The main reason I wrote this FAQ is because I keep getting asked to provide
translations for vocals in video games.  Therefore, it will mostly focus on
the vocals in the game.  I've only translated the moves lists that are in the
manual, so don't expect one of those giant lists of every normal attack and
throw each character has--you can find those on real FAQs discussing the
gameplay of the game such as the one by the late Kao Megura.

Mini-FAQ:
Q:  There's a vocal I know that you haven't touched on.  What should I do?
A:  Write me.  My e-mail's up there.  I may never update the FAQ, but I'll
    respond to a friendly e-mail or two--eventually.  I have a full-time job
    and do freelancing on top of it, so I'm not on the internet like a
    schoolboy.

Q:  God I hate you!  God I hate Japanese!  God!
A:  Don't mail me about this.  Also, the game's in Japanese because it was
    made in Japan, man.  If you don't like it, well, just go play Mortal Kombat
    or an ops game or something.

Q:  How was this FAQ made?
A:  I sat down and wrote out some of the things I've heard in the game.  Then,
    I picked the characters just to see if I've missed anything.  Lastly, I gave
    the soundtrack a listen.  This was the only way to hear Gill's "Ascension"
    vocal.  So, if a couple of them are wrong, you'll have to forgive me; the
    sampling is really horrid in this game and it's hard to hear things with
    explosions and crap going on.

Q:  How are there vocals that you know are in the game, but you don't know
    where they are?
A:  As I said before, I listened to the original soundtrack, which has some of
    the vocals as the last track.  There were a few that I have never heard
    in the game at all.  They will be noted with triple asterisks (***) after
    the listing.  If you know where they come from, please, by all means, mail
    me and I'll see if I can get it to work.

Q:  Will you ever update this FAQ?
A:  I dunno...I'm getting kind of famous for not completing anything I post to
    the internet.  As I said before, it's hard to find the time.  Maybe I'll
    talk to Matt Lesko and get a huge grant from the government to sit around
    and write FAQ's.
    If I do update it, I'd like to add win quotes and endings.


===================
B.  HOW THE FAQ...?
===================

If you're reading this, you're in a text editor or word processor.  You can
navigate the document with the "Find" options--they're usually in "Edit" or
something.  If you search for the name of the person you're looking for in the
Table of Contents, then type in the letter I've indexed them under, a period,
two spaces, and their name, all in capitals, it should take you there.  If not,
I'm sorry.  I tried not to be a horrible FAQ author.  Do not throw eggs at me.
  Oh, and don't flame me, either!  I should warn anyone, too, that if you want
to write in and say, "Hey, you missed so-and-so's whatever," or just want to
let me know how you feel, if you just put "Hi!" in the subject, I'll delete it,
nothing personal.  Don't send an attachment, either.  If you don't know why,
well, here's my advice:  don't open attachments you haven't asked for or e-mails
with just the word "Hi!" in it--especially from people you don't know.

Oh, I almost forgot:

QCT = Quarter Circle Towards.  This is the "fireball" motion, and is sometimes
  written "down, down/forward, forward."  If you don't know it, there are plenty
  of FAQs that touch better on this--this is only meant to be a translations
  FAQ and not really a discussion of gameplay.
QCB = Quarter Circle Backwards.  The reverse of the movement above horizontally;
  "down, down/back, back."
SRK = Shouryuuken motion.  "Forward, down, down/forward."
RSRK = Reverse Shouryuuken motion.  "Back, down, down/back."
HCT = Half Circle Towards.  "Back, down/back, down, down/forward, forward."
HCB = Half Circle Backwards.  "Forward, down/forward, down, down/back, back."
360 = Full Circle motion.  Generally, "Up, up/forward, forward, down/forward,
  down, down/back, back, up/back, up."  Just spin 360 degrees.
720 = Double Circle motion.  Do the 360 twice.
F = Forward
D = Down
B = Back
U = Up
Charge = Hold in that direction for a second or two.
P = Punch
K = Kick
WP = Weak Punch
MP = Medium Punch
SP = Strong Punch
WK = Weak Kick
MK = Medium Kick
SK = Strong Kick
PP = Two punches together
PPP = All three punches together
KK = Two kicks together
KKK = All three kicks together
Hold = Hold the button down for a while.
2x = Do the joystick motion twice.
Tap = Tap the button quickly and repeatedly.

You should know these if you've played 2d fighters before.  It is kind of an
old genre, and like I said before, there are plenty of FAQs out there that will
describe this stuff better to you if you've never played a 2d fighter before
in your life or have never heard of Street Fighter or something....

"Shoubu cha!"
"Let's fight!"

movies or games.)

"Ikuzeyo!--CHESUTO!"

attacks"])

"Mikitta!  Owari ya!"
"I've no more use for you!  It's over!"
(During "Abare Tosanamiyabuki" Super Art)
(NOTE: "Mikiru" carries the idea that one has completely seen or read
something, and has now abandoned it because they have no further use for it.
It's sort of like, "I've seen all of your fighting style I need to, and now,
I wash my hands of this dull fight!")

"Shinu ja!  Owari ya!"

(During "Abare Tosanamiyabuki" Super Art)

gloves are off!")

The stubborn troops of the secret organization after them wouldn't give
Necro or Effy any respite.
No matter how fast they run, or how far away they hid themselves, the dark

them.
However, Necro believed deep in his heart, that they would one day, no doubt,
find their "true freedom."

"....  It's so dull...."
Oro's boredom had surpassed its limit.  Sometimes, he would take on young
fighters as disciples, but they never lasted too long.
One day, a rumor reached him from our world, which he sometimes takes a passing

this about something you've done, it's definitely not a compliment.  Usually,
you'd say "Nanka...hen, ne?"  Which means "Something just wasn't right about
that)

"Kagen nashi ssu yo!"
"The kiddie gloves are off!"

stranger to me, somehow.)

"Ossu!  Yoroshiku onegai shimasu!  Are?"
"Hello!  Please give me the honor of fighting you!  Hunh?"
(During entrance)
(NOTE: "Ossu" is two things:  an informal "Hey!" or "Yo'!"-like greeting, and
also a greeting that karate students will often give to each other, which is
not as informal)

"Shoot!"
(During taunt, entrance)

"Are?"

(NOTE:  The word "Jupiter" is spelled out "Yupiteru" here in the Japanese.  This
is not a standard way to write the word.  I believe they were trying to give him
a Germanic or European flare, since in most Germanic tongues "j" is pronounced
with the sound written with a "y" in English.)

Chinese characters used here that represent "Demon" and "Destruction."  They
would normally be read "Maha," not "Mahha," and are used to add meaning to the
word, like a "Demon Destroying" fist)

"Hissatsu!"
"Here's my deadly attack!"
(During "Tenshin Senkyuutai" and "Sei'ei Enbu" Super Arts)

B.  LOUSY LYRICIST LOUNGE
-------------------------

Hey, it's not Mr. Magic or Pookey Blow, Edan, or Busdriver, but I'm sure those
folks would get a laugh or two out of hearing this!  Most people I knew seemed
pretty offended or upset that these lyrics were even in the game.  Oh, well.
I, myself, found them pretty funny, but also, I feel that they definitely add
character to the game.  The arranged, home version of the Bonus Game 2 track is
pretty cool, actually, if hard to har.  These lyrics are most likely copy-
righted by both Capcom and Lockdown, so, you know, don't sell them, or any-
thing like that.


Menu, Opening -THIRD STRIKE- (Full version is only in home version)

Yo, yo, yo!
Prepare for the battle, prepare for the war
Prepare for the world Street Fighter blood war
The third of the third, prepare to die for
Your life's on the line, so I'm'a take yours
So, who wanna blood dance wi' me?
Get your body wrapped up while you in a street fantasy?
In the square, yo', you best all beware  
Street Fighter--we ain't playin' over here
One on one, kid, you know you can't finish
Rhymes on rhymes, too, so come and get wit' it
Your heart ain't cold stone; forget about the power
Battle this out to the 24th hour
Pay the price that you couldn't deal with
Cold-blooded killers in my Lockdown clique
Got no time to waste; we're tickin' time bombs
Street Fighter III like a star of your own!

Make your first move, so what's it gonna be?
You've tapped into the new world of Street Fighter III
The third chapter, so what's it gonna be?
You've tapped into the new world of Street Fighter III
Make your first move, so what's it gonna be?
You've tapped into the new world of Street Fighter III
The third chapter, so what's it gonna be?
You've tapped into the new world of Street Fighter III

Yo!  Yo!
Rock what you've got, block what you're shot
Another chapter and what you get is what you've got
Enough warriors here to fight, choose one
The best of the best will be the champion
Whose world is this after all?
Capcom movin' with Lockdown forever, y'all
This contains scenes of violence and death
Viewer's own discretion, some ain't ready yet
For the pack that ain't ready, step off--and what you've got
For the fighters who're ready, take your regular spot
So what?  Come down, before it's too late to stop
Tryin' to front like you was kings of the block
Step too close, kid, you might get shot
Only one master's going straight to the top
One false, your whole game here would flop
Only one master's going straight to the top

Yeah!  Yeah!  Yo!
If you're 'bout to get your life in something you wish you wouldn't
It's too late; you gotta ball what you wish you couldn't
Pass the first stage, you thought you could live it
Now you soon realize you never could survive it
You're dealing with cold-blooded assassinators
Decapitate your body, laid a pro' for alligators
You're needed for your power, but here it's so much greater,
It's either you push through it or try to get it later
It's all about the confidence, but they don't cater
You got no time to talk to the player-haters
I guess one blocked kick will leave your body critical
Talk about real street thugs and big criminals
Lyin' helpless all the way to the finish
But you could practice, come back, and get wit' it
You can't block my hits!  The sky's no limit
It's a big distance, yo, it's infinite

Make your first move, so what's it gonna be?
You're trapped in the new world of Street Fighter III
The third chapter, so what's it gonna be?
You're trapped in the new world of Street Fighter III
Make your first move, so what's it gonna be?
You're trapped in the new world of Street Fighter III
The third chapter, so what's it gonna be?
You're trapped in the new world of Street Fighter III

Make your first move, so what's it gonna be?
You're trapped in the world of Street Fighter III:
Fight for the Future!  So what's it gonna be?
The Third Strike, y'all, it's Street Fighter III!
Make your first move, so what's it gonna be?
You're trapped in the new world of Street Fighter III:
Fight for the Future!  So what's it gonna be?

Menu, Opening -THIRD STRIKE- (Full version is only in home version)

Yo, yo, yo!
Prepare for the battle, prepare for the war
Prepare for the world Street Fighter blood war
The third of the third, prepare to die for
Your life's on the line, so I'm'a take yours
So, who wanna blood dance wi' me?

Bonus Game 2  ("Arranged", home version only--not in arcade)
(NOTE:  Many of these lyrics are wrong; it's pretty hard to hear the guy as
he's all muffled in the background.  Also, I've censored it, but they're the
F-words.  I don't know what a "hot ******" is, or what a "swani" could be,
so they're probably wrong)

Yeah!  Yeah!  

Well, it's a lyrical paragraph!  Your traps make me laugh!
In front of the the microphone, you didn't pass math 
or science.  The main ingredient be the finest of the fittest
Did it?  Yo', I ain't cool wit' it!  
You failed on the lessons of what it means to be in the top ten
Stop, look, and listen, 'cause it's probably your life's end.
If knowledge is the key to be the best of this life, 
then wisdom understands the ways of a punished man.
Devilish platitudes, you really make me rude!
Friday the 13th!  You're all ******' crude!
It's Jason and Michael Myers and Freddie, awful fine.
King of the savages would laugh at each one, you dig?
There's only one thing, everybody.
I'm at the hot ****** and I want me a swani!
Bring him along, I hear a bell!  What the hell?
I'm talkin' to Emcee's. They promised not to tell, oh swell!


NOTE:  There are also lyrics to the song "Moving On" used during the credits.
  However, they do not play in the game, so I didn't bother.

Thanks Cap, Lockdown, and all 2d nuts like me out there.  Well, or just plain
fighting game nuts.  Heck, just video game nuts.  That's a lot of nuts, and
I'm not going to say the puerile jokes you can get outta that.  

Until the next FAQ I half-finish,
