you could get any money out of it. I would like credit if you put it on

1. Introduction

ok I don't know about you, but I hate fighting games where there are 
characters you can't use. This game has several characters you can only 
fight against, but can't play as normally. This includes Night Terror, 
Charade, Will-o'-the-Wisp, Colossus and others. Well, you can use them, 
if you have a cheater like a gameshark, codebreaker or action replay, 
but unfortunately I don't have codes for the gameshark or action replay, 
just the codebreaker version 7 or higher. I would suggest getting a CB
anyway because they are the best and don't glitch up all that much. 
This guide gives you the codes, and I also threw together a movelist 
for the ones that have their own moves. some of them like Shadow Master 
and Doppelganger don't have their own movelists and just use other 
characters' moves.

2. The Codes

Here are the codes for the codebreaker. they only work for version 7 and 

2a. Enabler

First thing you have to do is put another enabler code on, along with the 
one for the game. this enable code lets the character mods work, so you 
have to have it on at all times for any of them to work.

Codebreaker 7+ Version Enable Code

0CF49BDF A4E29C32

2b. Activator

Now in your character mod code, you should have an activator. These allow 
you to activate your code whenever you want. without an activator, your 
code will be active all the time so you'll never be able to change 
characters until you reset. To add an activator to your character mod 
code, just put the activator in the first line, then the character mod 
in the 2nd one.

Player 1 Activator

D046DBA2 0000????

Player 2 Activator

D046DC72 0000????

You'll replace "????" with the button you want to use to activate the 
code. I'm only going to list four or five buttons since you shouldn't 
need more than that.

Replace ???? with:

FCFE = Press Select+L2+R2

FFFE = Press Select

FDFE = Press Select+R2

FCFF = Press L2+R2

So if you want to activate the code by pressing L2+R2, the activator 
would be D046DBA2 0000FCFF. got it? also note for it to work, you have 
to press the buttons at the character select screen. you'll see a cloud 
for a few seconds, and then the character you put in the code will 
appear in place of the character highlighted.

2c. Character Codes

Now, this code is the one that changes the character you pick into the 
one you want. all you have to do is highlight any character, then press 
the activator buttons if you have an activator on and the character will 
change into the one you put into the code.

Player 1 Character Mod

104B4860 000000??

Player 2 Character Mod

104D1FE0 000000??

You'll replace "??" with one of the numbers below which decides the 
character you get.

Replace ?? with:

27 = Night Terror

28 = Charade

29 = Charade (legs and body form)

2A = Charade (eyeball only form)

2B = Will-o'-the-Wisp (orange)

2C = Will-o'-the-Wisp (blue)

2E = Shadow Master

31 = Colossus

32 = Lizard MEN ???

By using numbers other than the ones above, you can actually pick any 
character in the game. I can't find the numbers for Unknown Soul, 
Doppelganger and a few others so if you get them, let me know.

3. Movelists for non-playable characters

Here are all the movelists for the characters you're not supposed to 
play as. they have all the moves the CPU versions have.

Charge The Button = (C)
Triangle = B (Vertical Attack)
Square = A (Horizontal Attack)
Circle = K (Kick)
X = G (Guard)

3a. Night Terror

Weapon: Soul Edge (Complete)


Vertical Attacks

Attack        What it is

B,B           2-hit Double Downward Slash

Forward+B     4-hit Sword Rotate Attack

(C)Forward+B  Powerful Downward Slash;releases sonic wave projectile

Down-left+B   1-hit Attack; also releases shockwaves which stun

Back+B        1-hit Guard Break Attack

(C)Back+B     Powerful 2-hit Sword Attack

Horizontal Attacks

Attack        What it is

A,A           Double Horizontal Punch

Back+A        Powerful Horizontal Slash + Knocks Enemy Away

(C)back+A     Sword Attack;releases sonic wave projectile

Down-right+A,A  2-hit Horizontal Sword Attack

Down-left+A,B,B Three Hit Combination Attack

Kick Attacks

Attack        What it is

K             Punch

(C)forward+K  Knock Away Punch

Down+K        Crouch Kick

Down-left+K   Foot Stomp; shockwaves stun if attack misses

Running K     Running Foot Trip

Other Attacks

Attack        What it is

A+B           Energy Attack (Hits at any range)

B+K           Fly (can then execute attacks from there)

B (flying)    Rapid-Fire Eye Laser

A (flying)    Rapid-Fire Eye Laser

K (flying)    Dive Bomb

G (flying)    cancel (drop back down)

K,K           3 Hit Combination Attack


B+G (close)

A+G (close)

Night Terror Notes: he's definitely the most powerful character in the 
game, although he's not much for speed. If a fast enemy is crowding you, 
use A+B to deal damage and knock them away (that attack works at almost 
all ranges too). The eye laser is one of the most powerful attacks in 
the entire game. It's unblockable and can't be avoided by side stepping. 
The only way to avoid it is to either go to long range (since it's a 
medium range attack) or to run under Night Terror, which is probably 
the better idea since you can then jump up and hit him or wait for him 
to come down. If you use eye laser and your opponent runs under you, 
hit guard to drop back down and try to recover as quick as possible. 
As powerful as Night Terror is, most of his attacks can be blocked and 
guard impacted just like any other character, so keep that in mind. 
Down-left+B is a good move that will stun the enemy if it misses. One 
last thing to note is that Night Terror can't be knocked out of the 
ring. He will simply fly back up and the fight will continue. Note 
that I didn't include every single move of his, but most are there.

3b. Charade

Weapon: Wave Sword

Laser Attack: Down,A+B

Charade Notes: Charade doesn't really have a movelist of his own. 
none of the main characters use the wave swords, but they can be 
bought and given to a created character. He does have one move of his 
own though; the laser. He points his hand down and a thin laser comes 
out, then he brings it up to hit the enemy. It isn't too powerful, but 
it goes the entire length of the screen and is unblockable, so the 
enemy has to sidestep it to avoid it. Don't use it alot up close 
because of the long recovery time. Other than that, he has all the 
attacks of the wave sword weapons. Some notable good attacks are: 
A+B, back+(C)A, down-right+A+B, forward-up+B+K.

Charade (Legs and body form)

Weapon: Kick Edge

Laser Attack: Down,A+B

This form of Charade has no arms. Note that he can't be thrown, and 
as this form, you can't do throws. This form of Charade is not as good 
as his main form because he takes alot of damage from attacks, making 
him hard to use competitively.

Charade (Eyeball only form)

Weapon: ???

Laser Attack: Down,A+B

This form only has the eyeball. I don't know the weapon it has because 
it doesn't say. Note that this Charade form uses a horizontal laser 
attack instead of vertical like the others. And like the leg and body 
form, it can't do throws or get thrown. This one isn't good for 
competitive use either because like the leg and body form, it takes 
alot of damage from attacks.

3c. Will-o'-the-Wisp

Weapon: Random

There are two versions, the one with orange colored flames and the one 
with blue. Both are the same though. At the character select it'll make 
you choose from Mitsurugi's weapons, but when the fight starts, he'll 
have a random weapon. They also have a few of their own attacks which 
they can use no matter what weapon they have.

Air Spin: Down+B+A+G

Impale: Up+A+G

Rising Face Plant: Up+B+A+G

You noticing how this guy has Inferno's moves? In fact, he is almost 
exactly like Inferno, including the voice. Still, he's not as good as 
the real thing...

3d. Colossus

Weapon: Olympus Punisher

He has too small of a movelist for me to need to write one out. 
Pressing B will cause his sword to glow with energy and then he slams 
the ground, doing immense damage (possibly over a half of your health 
bar) and sending you flying. This guy is definitely too cheap to use 
competitively. He is unbelievably slow though, he can only walk slowly, 
and his attacks are slow. Believe it or not, an expert could beat this 
guy easy by just blocking his attacks and then hitting him while he 
recovers. Attacks don't stun Colossus by the way, and he takes 
noticably less damage from attacks than other characters.

3e. Others

Ok the only other non-playable characters you can use are not really 
worth it. Doppelganger, Unknown Soul and Shadow Master are just 
other characters, but darkened so you can't see who they are. Still, 
if anybody out there figures out the numbers to play as doppelganger 
or Unknown Soul, let me know and you will get credit.

4. Glitches and Problems

Yeah you didn't think there wouldn't be glitches did ya? Thankfully 
there are no glitches during fights, so you don't have to worry 
about that.

Tale of Souls Glitches

The game will freeze up anytime you try to use a character in Tale of 
Souls you're not supposed to use.

Character Select Screen Glitches

If you're playing a two player game, have one character pick his 
character and weapon first to prevent the game from freezing.

Profile Screen Glitches

Some characters will freeze the game if you try to go into the 
profile screen with them, or if you try to listen to their quotes. 
Night Terror is the only one to not have any glitches.
any glitches in his profile screen.

Practice Tutorial Glitches

Using any of the non-playable fighters in the tutorial mode causes 
the game to freeze.

That's it for the guide, hope you liked it. If you know something I 
don't, email me and let me know.
