    1.  INTRODUCTION
    ----------------
    
    ===================
    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....

    In the last tournament, Hugo would run all over people, so everyone stayed

    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-

    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

    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

    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!

    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

    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.
