    Welcome to my movelist/guide for NeoGeo Battle Coliseum and thank you for
 reading. This guide will attempt to document NeoGeo Battle Coliseum's (of 
 which I'll refer to as NGBC from now on) game system, character movelist and 
 move properties where possible. Please note that this is NOT a combo guide, 
 and whatever combos in here are to highlight a move's property only.

    Dedicated to Chris and Charles MacDonald.

 Version 0.1 beta (6 November 2005) 
 - First release. Lots more to be done. I left out the normal cancels on 
 purpose because I don't have everyone's cancel charts yet. A LOT of move

 - for hosting a bunch of videos depicting the moves for various characters.


   NeoGeo Battle Coliseum is essentially SNK Playmore's take on a dream
 match featuring characters from its various games such as King of Fighters, 
 Last Blade, Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury/Garou, Art of Fighting and many other
 titles, all pitted in a 2-on-2 tag team battle.

   Please read this segment, especially the moves properties because I use a
 lot of terminologies in the character movelist. Now, on to the game system

 qcf+E                     D-Assault (Double Assault)
 Press E when blocking     Guard Cancel Tag Attack (requires 1 stock)

 - In NGBC, you only gain stock from attacks if they hit or are blocked. 
   Whiffed attacks, including special moves do not build up your stock, though
   getting hit by enemy attacks or taking block damage increases your stock.
 - Your stock builds up on its own even when you're not attacking once the
   "D-Assault OK/Auto Charge OK" message appears. Using any moves that involve
   the E button will cause your stock bar to stop charging automatically until
   the message reappears.
 - If you hold the joystick forward during a frontstep, your character will
   run. You can cancel your frontstep or dash into an attack.
 - The High Jump goes further than a normal jump, and is faster. Characters
   cannot hop (low jump) in NGBC.
 - The Fallbreaker (recovery roll) allows a character to get up quicker by
   rolling backwards upon being knocked down. Note that not all attacks can be
   recovered from.
 - Characters are invincible during part of the Tactical Step and Guard Cancel 
   Frontstep, but not as it ends. The moves require a bit of stock to use.
   Both moves only travel forward, and can be canceled into an attack.
 - The Just Defence Frontstep is performed by blocking just before an attack
   hits, then immediately tapping f,f on the joystick. There is no visual 
   indicator for this, so you won't know you did it unless you were paying
   attention to your stock gauge. It works exactly the same as the Guard 
   Cancel Frontstep.
 - The AC Tactical Step cancels your attack (indicated by your character
   flashing blue for an instant, during which they are invulnerable). It's
   possible to extend combos using this move.
 - There is now a miss animation for basic throws.

 - Pressing E will cause you to switch characters. Characters switched out 
   will heal automatically after a while. Unlike in KOF2003, your character 
   will tag out immediately: your character will not taunt opponent first. 
   A character hit while tagging will not switch out.
 - Characters are invincible while tagging once they leave the ground , and
   the incoming character is invincible until they land. However, characters
   have a very brief pause before and after the tag, during which they are
 - Switching characters will not affect the amount of life they can heal. So,
   if your character has for example 70% life healable and has healed 30%
   before being tagged back in, you can still tag out and heal the remaining
   40%. That's assuming you didn't take any extra damage or a D-Assault.
 - If you connected with a D-Assault, your inactive character will not heal
   while on-screen to perform their attack.
 - While you can switch out normally as often as you want, doing so will cause
   the "D-Assault OK" message to disappear. The message will also disappear
   when you use a Guard Cancel Tag or a D-Assault, regardless whether they hit
   or not.

 - If you press E while blocking, your character will counterattack with a 
   knockdown attack that does no damage, then switch out. The move requires 1
   stock bar. Your character is invincible while flashing white during the
   attack, but your incoming partner is vulnerable to attacks. This move can 
   be done anywhere as long as you're blocking.
 - You do not need the "D-Assault OK" message on-screen to use the Guard 
   Cancel Tag Attack, but keep in mind if the move hits, your opponent will
   get 0.5 stock added to their gauge.
 - In a 2-player match, if one character was already KOed, the Guard Cancel 
   Tag Attack will only have your remaining character performing the knockdown
   attack, since there's no partner to tag with.

 - The Double Assault is performed with qcf+E, and it does not switch 
   characters. It does not require stock, and can be chained into. The move
   does little damage, but it reduces the amount of health your opponent can
   heal (indicated by the red areas at the lifebar).
 - D-Assaults cannot be reversed.
 - Upon connecting with the D-Assault, the screen background will turn blue.
   After the move ends, the screen resets to the center even if the move was
   done in the corner. The D-Assault ends with the hit character being sent
   flying across the opposite end of the screen, ending any corner traps.
 - You may only use the Double Assault when the message "D-Assault OK" appears 
   above your stock gauges. The message will reappear again after a short 
   while if you didn't use anything involving the E button.
 - The Double Assault can hit jumping or juggled opponents, but it has almost
   no priority, and can be defeated by just about any other attack.
 - Upon a successful D-Assault, your partner's lifebar will flash red for some
   time, which allows them to do more damage. Better yet, normal attacks will
   do block damage, and blocked attacks reduce opponent's guard meter more. 
   This is known as Hyper Charge mode.
 - The Hyper Charge mode lasts until your "D-Assault OK" message reappears,
   regardless of whether you switched characters or not.
 - A Double Assault will miss if you tried to combo a normal attack against a
   jumping/mid-air opponent, even if on a Counter hit.
 - Certain team combinations have access to special D-Assaults. Look under the
   'Miscellaneous' section for more information.

 - In NGBC, ALL damage from blocking special moves and DMs is recoverable
   by healing.
 - The motion 360 degree moves only need you to input four directions instead
   of inputting a full circle to get the move out. So, it's possible to launch
   moves like Geese's Shinkuu Nage by motioning hcb,ub,u+P to get it to launch
   from the ground without being canceled from first.
 - Many aerial special moves can be performed from the ground by extending the
   original command a little to include ub/u/uf in the input. For example,
   Kim's aerial Hou'ou Kyaku can be performed from the ground using 
   qcb,hcf,uf+K or qcb,ub,hcf+K. Not all aerial command/special moves can be
   used off the ground however. All aerial specials/DM are immune to low
 - Some aerial moves can also be performed during a backstep (b,b), though
   many of the moves capable of doing so in KOF lost this ability in NGBC.

 - The 'Counter On' option in Practice Mode doesn't work in NGBC, the 
   "Counter" message appears but doesn't have any actual effect on move 
 - Kyo and Iori's special intro sometimes causes a glitch where instead of a
   black background both characters turn invisible so only the flames can be 
   seen. Once the match starts both characters reappear but the background
   turns all white and stays that way throughout the match until a move that 
   affects the background color (such as a D-Assault and most DM's) comes
   into play. 
 - Hit locations are always noted first in brackets[], other properties later.
 - All jumping normal attacks must be blocked high. 
 - "In the corner" means your opponent should be backed to the screen's edge
   where they can't move backwards any further.
 - All cancelable moves, be it normal/command or Super Cancels can only be
   canceled if they hit or is blocked. Whiffed moves cannot be canceled.
 - (near) means the move can only hit or be launched when near an opponent. 
   'Near' in this sense means within range of your close standing attacks.
 - (air) means the move can be performed in mid-air as well as on the ground.
 - All overhead command attacks can be blocked low when canceled into from
   normal attacks, regardless if they actually combo or not. All overhead
   special moves retain their properties when canceled into.
 - A move that does extra hits on a Counter hit will also do extra chipping
   damage when blocked.

 [O] - Overhead/High level attack, must be blocked standing.
 [M] - Mid-level attack, can block standing or crouching.
 [L] - Move hits low and must be blocked crouching.
 [U] - Move is unblockable.
 [-] - Move does not hit, see additional notes.

 S   - Cancelable into special moves.
 SC  - Cancelable into DMs only.
 X   - Move can be canceled into, but it won't combo.

 A   - Move has autoguard.
 KD  - Move knocks down an opponent, but can use recovery roll (Fallbreaker).
       DMs, throws and sweeps (crouching D) generally knock down upon hitting, 
       so only the NR property will be used if the move isn't recoverable.
 NR  - No Recovery: Move knocks down, opponent cannot use recovery roll. 
 OTG - Over the Ground: Move can hit an opponent that has been knocked down.
 J   - Juggles opponent, can followup after move. Juggles always knock down.
       so the KD notation won't be used. If a followup was not done, a juggled
       character may use the Fallbreaker upon landing.
 T   - Throw move, cannot be reversed. May or may not be unblockable. Throws
       do not do Counter damage. All special throws cannot be escaped from.
 P   - Projectile, cannot be reversed, although certain moves can negate, 
       absorb or reflect them. DM projectiles usually negate normal ones.
 CW  - Move is a Counter Wire, meaning on a Counter hit, the move will cause 
       opponent to bounce off the screen edge and leave them open to juggles.
 SC  - Super Cancelable. Special moves are SCable for free in NGBC: you do not
       need one extra stock bar.
 DM  - Super/Desperation move, requires 1 stock bar to use. Some characters'
       DMs require 2 bars or all 3 stock bars to perform. If so, they will
       be noted in parentheses () next to the move name. DMs are indicated by
       a red startup flash.

 - Ai's move names are less than subtle references to various MVS titles, 
   namely Top Hunter, Robo Army, Joy Joy Kid, Baseball Stars 2/Professional,
   Last Resort, and 2020 Super Baseball. I'm guessing Hyper Tackle is a
   reference to the Hyper NeoGeo 64 arcade board.
 - Yuki's move names are references to Beast Buster, Burning Fight, Riding
   Hero, Mutation Nation and Sengoku. His DMs refer to the MVS arcade board
   and Neo-Geo AES console.

 #. It seems Ai has no sweep. Motioning (d+D) has her performing a short
    Hyper Tackle that doesn't hit low or knock down, and is not cancelable.
 #. Ai's standing D knocks down.
 #. Ai has no far standing B animation. The move hits low and is cancelable.
 1. ROBO ARM: Ai crouches and does a short jab with a robotic arm. The move is
 2. WHIRLWIND FIST: Ai turns into a small tornado, knocking down opponent if
    it hits. Motioning f+C goes forward while b+C goes backward. This move's
    command overlaps with a dash, so if you press C while doing a frontstep
    or dash, you'll end up getting this instead of her standing C.
 3. HYPER TACKLE: Ai charges forward with a low attack. This move does not
    knock down, but is cancelable. 
 4. JOY JOY BLOCK: Ai summons a Tetris block (yes, a Tetris block), which
    appears at the top of the screen. After a while, the block falls down. The
    button used determine the block distance from Ai, with A being closest to
    her. You can hold the joystick on the down position to have the block fall
    faster. The block will disappear if Ai is hit, but she can move freely
    after the block appears. If the move is reflected, the block will be
    placed in front of opponent instead.
 5. BASEBALL STARS: Ai swings with her baseball bat. The move can hit normally
    as well as counter projectiles. The C version comes out slower, but does 
    2 hits, either which can counter projectiles. For the A and C versions, Ai
    bats out a baseball if it meets a normal projectile at any level. A 
    version sends the baseball straight forward while C has it travelling in 
    an arc. Both versions are also Counter Wires and are SCable.
 #. The (A) Baseball Stars normally returns a baseball straight forward, but
    against odd-angled projectiles like Marco's Black Grenade or Geese's 
    Shippu Ken, the baseball she returns will travel at a different angle. If
    you batted while the projectile while it was above the bat, the baseball 
    goes upwards. Otherwise, it travels directly behind Ai. For the (C) 
    version, the angle depends on which hit you batted the projectile with. If
    it batted on the first hit, the baseball goes forward, while it arcs as 
    normal if batted on the second hit.    
 6. BASEBALL STARS 2: The AC version has Ai summoning a Joy Joy Block, then
    batting it diagonally up-forward (it has slow startup time however). The
    block can hit on its own if opponent jumped toward Ai and touched it. Also
    , before Ai bats it forward, the block can negate projectiles, even DMs.
    Once she bats it however, the block can be reflected or negated like
    normal. If reflected, the block rebounds at a downward angle towards Ai.
 7. BUSHIN KEN: Ai creates a mirror image that slides forward to the end of 
    the screen before returning to her for the B version, working as a 
    fake-out. The mirror images cannot be harmed and attacks will pass right 
    through. D version is an actual teleport forward (Ai poses first). Ai can
    create multiple illusions using the B version, then mix it up with the D 
    version. She can move and attack freely while any illusions are on-screen. 
    Note that Ai is not invincble while teleporting during the D version. Both 
    versions are SCable.
 8. 2020 SUPER CATCH: Ai absorbs projectiles with this move, gaining plenty of 
    stock in the process. B version absorbs mid-level projectiles, while D 
    absorbs low and floor-level ones. Neither version can absorb DMs.
 9. JOY JOY BALLOON: Ai sits on a balloon, during which she can move around
    slowly but cannot block. Strangely, if Ai was fairly low to the ground, low
    attacks can hit her out of it. Pressing D or using a Joy Joy Block or 
    Lightning Ball will end this move. Ai will also drop off on her own after 
    5 seconds if you didn't do anything, or after 10 seconds if you moved or
    made an attack. You can perform this while jumping.
10. JOY JOY TREASURE: Ai tosses random objects while on the balloon. (A) drops
    objects on a shallow arc directly in front of her, while (C) goes about
    1/3 screen and bounce once. The items she throws are (thanks to HexElf
    for this):

   (A) VERSION                (C) VERSION
    - Dynamite stick *         - Crate *
    - Bomb *                   - Bomb bonus item *
    - Star coin                - Last Resort Option item
    - Baseball                 - League Bowling logo

    Items marked with a * explode upon contact with opponent and knock down. 
    If you get two explosive items in a row, it's possible for the second item
    to OTG opponent. If opponent is hit by an item (explosive or not), you can
    combo the Coma or Moonsault from it if Ai is close enough to opponent.
11. JOY JOY BLOCK (Joy Joy Balloon version): This version allows you to juggle
    a hit opponent, but using it ends the Joy Joy Balloon.
12. LIGHTNING BALL: A field of electricity surrounds Ai's balloon. The move
    will only hit if opponent was near the balloon, but can negate normal
13. COMA: Ai falls down with a flaming attack, knocking down opponent if it
    connects. If it his in the corner, you can juggle opponent before they
    land, and the Last Resort can combo and juggle repeatedly.
14. MOONSAULT: Ai hops forward with a kiok. She can use this after the Coma as
    well, but the moves don't combo with each other.
15. JOY JOY PARTY: Ai summons a screenful of Tetris blocks and they fall at
    different rates, exploding upon contact with opponent. A version starts
    with a block falling directly in front of Ai, while C has the first block
    falling at 1/2 screen distance.
16. LAST RESORT: Ai summons a small robot drone that shoots tiny projectiles.
    Note that the drone itself can hit opponent, and if it hits a mid-air or
    juggled opponent, the move can juggle repeatedly as long as the drone 
    touches opponent. Ai can move freely while the drone is active, but if
    hit, the drone will disappear. It will also disappear on its own after 7
    shots, after hitting 4 times, or if you used the Power! Unit!, which sends
    it for a kamikaze attack. The little drone fires seven shots in total; 2
    diagonally upwards, 2 straight ahead, 2 diagonally downwards, then pauses
    for a moment before firing one last shot diagonally downward. There are no
    variations between button version. With good timing you can use the Power!
    Unit! to combo with the shots even at a distance.
 #. Ai is holding a Neo-Geo Pocket during some of her moves, such as during
    her standing A. The little creatures running with Ai during her dash
    animation are from the cult NeoGeo Pocket "pet sim" called "Ganbare Neo 
    Pocke-Kun!". Ai's Robo Arm and the transforming SUV in her intro are 
    references to Robo Army, an MVS game.

 #. Yuki's far standing D takes him off the ground, and can be canceled into
    the Riding Hero, but not the Lightning fist.
 1. MUTATION COMBINATION: 5-hit combination command attack. You need to input
    the commands pretty fast to get all the hits in. You can perform all the
    hits even if the move misses.
 2. DOGOU SOU KEN: Additional hit for Yuki's close standing C, usable only if
    it hits or is blocked. The move is cancelable.
 3. BEAST BUSTER: Yuki points forward, and fires an invisible projectile from
    his wrist. The move is aimed slightly upward, so it will miss opponent if
    they were at the opposite end of screen or was crouching. There is a short
    delay before the move hits after Yuki fires, but the projectile hits at 
    any range, and can hit mid-air opponents. The (A) version launches slower,
    but can hit crouching opponents if they aren't more than 1/2 screen away.
    (C) version can be ducked under by most characters, but launches faster.
    Move does 3 hits when powered with the (A) Memory Card Slash, and is able
    to hit nearby crouching opponent and launches at the (C) version's speed.
    The further away opponent is, the longer it takes for the move to hit. 
    Although invisible, the projectile can be reflected, though the powered-up
    version will still get the last hit in. The powered-up version can also be
    used to follow up after the Submarine Screw (unpowered) or the 2nd or 3rd
    hits of the Mutation Combination.
 3. SUBMARINE SCREW: Yuki punches diagonally upward with a column of blue 
    flames from his hand, serving as his anti-air. In the corner, the move 
    juggles a mid-air opponent. It can also negate normal projectiles at any
    level. When powered with the (C) Memory Card Slash, Yuki literally does
    Duke Edwards'(from Burning Fight) Submarine Screw, during which he is 
    invincible and the move does 7 hits (6 on a mid-air opponent). The powered
    version can also OTG opponent on the 1st hit. Note that the unpowered 
    version cannot be reversed, but the powered version is reversible. The
    powered version is an anywhere juggle move, meaning it can always hit an
    opponent who is off the ground, even if they were in hitstun such as after
    a sweep.
 4. BAKURETSU KEN: Yuki rushes forward with a knockdown lightning punch (which
    is odd considering the move's name). The move won't hit during the forward
    dash: only during the actual punch can hit when Yuki stops. Move is SCable
    , and either Chodokyu Mega Beam will combo from it in the open. This move
    cannot be reversed and negates normal projectiles.
 5. SENGOKU DENSHOU: Yuki hops forward. This move works as a reversal. (A)
    version counters high/mid level normal and command attacks, while (C)
    counters low hitting normal and command attacks. The move can only reverse
    attacks as Yuki is rising, so he's vulnerable while falling. Upon hitting,
    Yuki stabs downwards with energy from his wrists, juggling opponent 
    (though only the Submarine Screw will hit). When powered with the (B)
    Memory Card Slash, the move can reverse attacks of any level including
    special moves and DMs. The powered up version also does 4 hits, and still
    juggles opponent, but only the powered-up Submarine Screw will combo.
 6. RIDING HERO: Yuki turns around and shoots a small beam from his wrist 
    while in mid-air, the recoil pushing him forward. Basically, it's an air 
    dash (this move does not hit opponent). Can be interrupted into the 
    Lightning Fist. Strangely, you can cancel into this from a close C or far
    D by motioning qcb,ub+P.
 7. LIGHTNING FIST: Yuki teleports and reappears back on the ground directly
    below where the move was launched with bolts of lightning streaking around
    his body. The (D) Memory Card Slash gives the move more range and hits.
    This move knocks down and negate normal projectiles. You can juggle 
    opponent in the corner after hitting with the powered up version (the 
    Submarine Screw works well). This move can be performed during a backdash.
    Unlike the Riding Hero, you cannot perform this move from his close C/far 
    D. However, this move will always launch from a Riding Hero, no matter how
    low it was. In this case, move may not have invincibility, since Yuki 
    appears on the ground directly without teleporting (he is immune to 
    attacks while teleporting). The powered version can also OTG opponent.
 8. MEMORY CARD SLASH: Powers up Yuki's special moves, causing them to do more
    hits and damage, as well as having other properties:
    (A) - Beast Buster
    (B) - SENGOKU Denshou
    (C) - Submarine Screw
    (D) - Lightning Fist
    (Start) - Enables use of Fire Suplex Hold

    You can stack different versions of this move, but repeating the command
    for a powered move will not allow you to perform two powered moves in a
    row. Instead, it resets the duration before the powerup effects wears off,
    which is 10 seconds normally. The move is successfully activated once Yuki
    flashes blue, even if he is hit. There are no differences between button 
    versions for powered up moves.
 9. FIRE SUPLEX HOLD: Unblockable command throw. You MUST have used the Start
    version Memory Card Slash first to be able to use this move. Tap the P
    button rapidly to increase the move's damage and duration.
10. CHODOKYU MEGA BEAM 100: Yuki hops up and fire a beam from his wrist. Move
    comes out fairly fast, but you can't seem to combo into it from normals.
    This only combos when SCed from the (C) Bakuretsu Ken.
11. CHODOKYU NEO GEO RANBU: Standard autocombo DM. Costs 2 stock bars to use.
    Yuki is invincible during the startup flash, but since it lasts for such
    a short time, it's unlikely the move will be able to avoid projectiles.
12. CHODOKYU STATUS UP: Yuki glows red for the B version, during which his 
    attacks do increased damage. He glows yellow for the D version, during
    which he takes less damage. Considering this move costs 2 levels, its
    effects don't last very long (about 7-8 seconds at best).
13. MAX 330 MEGA BEAM: Yuki fires a pink version of his Mega Beam 100. For
    a move that costs all 3 levels, the damage from this move is only so-so.
    This version launches faster than the Mega Beam 100 and combos when SCed
    from either Bakuretsu Ken version. It suffers heavily from damage scaling
    in combos however.
 #. Yuki is invincible shortly before he fires the beam during either of his
    Mega Beam DMs, and while the beam is being fired. The invincibility time
    on his Max 330 Mega Beam is shorter due to the faster execution speed.
 #. Pay attention to the wordings that appear very briefly during the Mega
    Beam 100 and Max 330 Mega Beam. Talk about self-promotion eh? :)

 1. YUMEBIKI: The 1st hit is only cancelable into DMs or a D-Assault, while
    the 2nd hit is cancelable into specials. Move combos from light attacks. 
    The 2nd hit won't connect if canceled from a standing/crouching C.
 2. SHINIGAME: Overhead kick, cannot be chained into. Becomes cancelable if 
    canceled into.
 3. YURI ORI: This move is a cross-up attack and cannot hit unless used while
    jumping over opponent. Despite being an air attack, this move can be 
    blocked low. This move can no longer be done during a backstep.
 4. YAMI BARAI: Move can now hit an opponent lying on the floor.
 5. AOI HANA: A version is faster, while C goes further. The 2nd hit knocks 
    down, while the 3rd hit is an overhead and cannot be recovered from. You
    can OTG your opponent with a Yami Barai after the A version hits.
 6. KOTOTSUKI IN: Move is only chainable from his close/crouching C or a
    canceled Shinigame. The 2nd hit may miss against jumping opponents. If 
    blocked, Iori stops at the 1st hit, which has little recovery time. The
    move is now SCable on the 1st hit, but only the Ya Otome will combo.
 7. ONIYAKI: A version does one hit, while C version does 3 hits and will only 
    knock down on the 3rd hit. C version is SCable on the 1st and 2nd hits.
 8. KUZUKAZE: Short ranged unblockable throw. Does no damage, but switches 
    sides and leaves opponent vulnerable momentarily. Opponent recovers from
    this move faster now.
 8. YA OTOME: Iori can go under mid-level projectiles during this move. He no
    longer has the Saika followup.	
10. YA SAKAZUKI: If move hits, opponent will be unable to move. Move will
    trigger under a mid-air opponent and negates normal projectiles. Unlike in
    KOF2003, the move damages opponent. You still can't combo into this move, 
    but the projectile travels faster now, and Iori recovers faster as well. 
    While opponent is immobilized, you cannot repeat this move, but now throw
    moves can hit opponent, meaning the Kuzukaze and Chi No Busou can hit.
    Opponent can no longer mash joystick and buttons to escape from this move
    , but they will not take gradual damage while immobilized. The (A) version
    explodes at 1/2 screen distance, while (C) explodes at 90% screen range.
11. CHI NO BUSOU: Iori leaps forward, and upon landing, grabs opponent and
    performs a flameless Saika (his Exceed from SNK vs Capcom). The move is an
    unblockable throw, cannot hit a mid-air opponent and only hits when Iori 
    lands. The B version lands Iori slightly in front of his launch location,
    while D version takes him about 1/3 screen distance. Iori is immune to any
    on-screen attacks while he slashes if the move hits. The only way to combo
    into this move is by connecting the Ya Sakazuki, but this is Iori's most
    damaging DM.

 1. AN INCH: Overhead with no-recovery knockdown when used standalone. Is also
    SCable when used standalone, although you can't combo into it. On a 
    Counter hit, it becomes a Counter Wire, and can combo with a delayed Heat 
    Drive. When canceled into, move becomes cancelable.
 2. KNEE ASSAULT: Move is cancelable into the Minutes Spike (aerial) or Air
    Trigger and combos from light attacks. It's now easier to cancel this move
    compared with KOF2003.
 3. IRON TRIGGER: Short range projectile, can followup with Second Shoot or
    Second shell regardless of whether the Iron Trigger hits or not. The A 
    version knocks down, while the C version pushes opponent back. Move cannot 
    hit a juggled opponent, so you can't use this to followup a Second Shell 
    or a Counter Hit An Inch. Move only chains from hard attacks.
 4. SECOND SHOOT: Projectile; the move can hit from up close like in KOF2003.
 5. SECOND SHELL: Upward aimed flaming kick that juggles a hit opponent. Can
    follow with any DM in the corner, while the Heat Drive will combo in the
    open. The move can negate normal projectiles. while this combos from the
    Iron Trigger, the Iron Trigger won't hit an opponent juggled by this.
 6. CROW BITES: K' stops in mid-air during the C version, and you can followup
    with the Crow Bites Plus. A version is SCable on the 2nd hit. When SCed,
    the move no longer juggles, so the Heaven's Drive will connect properly.
 7. BLACKOUT: Teleport move, D version goes further than B. The move has a 
    very short period of invincibility about halfway through the slide, but K'
    is vulnerable during the startup and when he reappears.
 8. MINUTES SPIKE: Forward jumping kick, can avoid low attacks. D version goes
    further than B. Can be used in mid-air, or during a backstep. If a jumping
    C or D hits a mid-air opponent, you can followup with this. You can now 
    use the Air Trigger after a ground-launched Minutes Spike if it hits or is 
    blocked. If you managed to hit an opponent in mid-air with this, it's 
    possible to hit opponent again before they land.
 9. NARROW SPIKE: Low hitting knockdown move; can only be launched from a
    ground-launched Minutes Spike. The Minutes Spike must travel forward a
    little before you can launch this move. If the move hits in the corner,
    you can followup before opponent lands: try using the (A) Crow Bites. You
    can use this move regardless of whether the Minutes Spike hits or not.
    Move is SCable: The Heat Drive hits in the open, while the Chain/Heaven's
    Drive works in the corner.
10. HEAT DRIVE: C version launches faster than A, and is easier to combo into.
    If blocked, K' stops in front of opponent.
11. HEAVEN'S DRIVE: This move can combo from light attacks. If chained into,
    the move will not do its full 11 hits. 
12. CHAIN DRIVE: Autocombo move: K' throws his sunglasses, and if it hits or
    is blocked, K' dashes forward with an autocombo attack. The glasses are 
    treated as a projectile, so it can clash with other normal projectiles;
    and K' will still rush forward. A low projectile may still go under the 
    glasses and hit K' out of this move. Move can hit a juggled opponent at
    or near the corner. This move requires 2 levels to use but the animation 
    is the KOF2002 DM version.

 #. Kyo's crouching B isn't cancelable into special moves, but the 88 Shiki
    comes out fast enough to combo from it.
 #. Kyo's far C is now cancelable.
 #. Kyo lost his Kototsuki You followup for the Yanosabi.
 1. NARAKU OTOSHI: Knocks down an airborne opponent. No longer usable during
    a backstep. 
 2. GOUFU YOU: Is an overhead when used on its own. When canceled into it 
    becomes cancelable and does 2 hits. The move's speed and range has been 
    increased, and it will now combo from light attacks. 
 3. 88 SHIKI: Both hits are low attacks. The move now has longer recovery.
 4. ONIYAKI: C version hits twice, but only knocks down on the 2nd hit, which
    may miss when chained into. A version hits twice on a Counter hit and is
    an anywhere juggle. C version is SCable on the 1st hit.
 5. 75 SHIKI KAI: 2nd hit of D version juggles opponent but may miss if done 
    too far from opponent. B version does not juggle, but chains from light
 6. HIKIGANE: B version is immune to low attacks, while D version is immune to
    high/mid level attacks when Kyo hunches before he attacks. Both versions 
    now juggle opponent. B version is no longer SCable, but D version is now
    SCable on the 2nd hit. The 2nd hit of the D version may be crouched under.
 7. R.E.D KICK: The move can now be performed in mid-air. Opponent cannot
    recovery roll from this move.
 8. ARAGAMI: The followups can be performed regardless of whether the Aragami 
    hits or not. The Aragami can negate normal projectiles if Kyo's fist 
    connects with it. The move has autoguard as Kyo steps forward, before he 
    strikes. Move is SCable, but only the Mu Shiki and Orochi Nagi will combo
    from it. The (A) 182 Shiki command overlaps with this, so you need to use
    the C version if you want to SC into it.
 9. DOKUGAMI: The Dokugami can negate normal projectiles if Kyo's fist connects
    with it. Kyo's standard Dokugami chain (qcf+C> hcb+C> f+C> f,d,df+C) can
    be performed regardless of whether the Dokugami hits or not. However, his
    new chain (qcf+C> qcf+C> qcf+A> qcf+K> hcb+C) can only be done if the 
    Dokugami hits opponent. Like in KOF2003, Kyo's standard Dokugami chain can
    only be done using the C button now.
10. SHAKU EN: Finisher for the new alternate Dokugami chain. Kyo raises his
    arm and clenches his fist (his win pose from KOF2000), igniting his
    opponent. You can juggle opponent in the corner after the move hits using 
    the D Hikigane, and continue with the (A) Oniyaki 3 times in a row, or
    using a Double Assault.
11. OROCHI NAGI: A version is immune to most low attacks, C version is immune
    to mid/high attacks. The immunity begins while Kyo is holding up a flaming
    hand, and lasts while the move is being delayed. Kyo is vulnerable as he
    slides forward to attack. The flame wave can destroy normal/DM projectiles
    and cannot be negated. The move is faster now, and will combo from the 
    Goufu You. As with KOF, delaying the move until the startup flash 
    disappears will make Kyo slide faster when released.
12. 182 SHIKI: The move does more damage and becomes unblockable when fully
    charged. Kyo is invincible during the startup flash, but not while being
    delayed or as he punches.
13. MU SHIKI: The column of flames during the startup can negate normal and DM
    projectiles. The multiple punches can negate normal projectiles, and an
    opponent touching Kyo's body will be drawn in and will take damage even
    if they were behind him. Kyo is not invincible during this move, so long
    ranged attacks (such as Mizuchi's energy columns) may be able to hit him
    out of it. The pillar of fire is a projectile and cannot be negated, but
    Kyo's punches can be reversed. This is the DM version from KOF'97/98, so
    it stops at 5 hits. Move combos from light attacks.
14. CHOUHATSU: Kyo taunts opponent. Upon completing the taunt, Kyo's body 
    glows yellow for about 5 seconds or so, during which he can cancel his
    special moves into other specials. Kyo MUST complete the taunt animation
    for this to take effect. If he gets interrupted even as he finishes the
    taunt, Kyo won't glow yellow. Unlike in KOF'97/98 however, this can be
    done even if the Mu Shiki misses altogether (previously at least one of
    the punches needed to connect first).

 #. Shermie has no far standing A,B and D animations.
 #. You can combo Shermie's standing/crouching A into her standing B (then
    into the Shermie Stand).
 #. Shermie's far C is now cancelable.
 #. Shermie's crouching B is slightly slower, but still cancelable.
 1. SHERMIE STAND: Move is an overhead on the 2nd hit. If canceled into, it
    becomes cancelable on the 2nd hit. This combos from light attacks.
 2. BAKU NEW SUPLEX: Command throw, will grab any nearby opponent, including
    mid-air opponents. Move cannot be chained into, but is now unblockable. 
    Note the command is now f+C instead of f+A.
 3. SHERMIE KICK: Shermie's standing CD from KOF2002/NeoWave. It knocks back
    (doesn't knock down), but is cancelable, and the Thunder Leg Lariat will
    combo from it.
 4. DIAMOND BUST: Long ranged unblockable command throw. Cannot hit mid-air
    opponents. The move comes out much faster now, and can be chained into.
    The dash is SCable, though the throw won't hit in this case.
 5. SHERMIE WHIP: Blockable throw: can grab standing or jumping opponents. Has
    long recovery time if it misses. The move is now split into two sections:
    the first qcb+P is the initial grab. Upon hitting, motion qcb+P again for
    the suplex. Shermie moves backward during this move, so it tends to miss
    in combos unless done very near opponent.
 6. AXLE SPINNING KICK: An overhead kick that doesn't combo from normals. (D) 
    version goes higher than B version. Both versions have invincibility at 
    the beginning, but Shermie is vulnerable as she kicks. This move can now
    be done in mid-air, making for some nasty cross-up potential.
 7. SHERMIE CLUTCH: Anti-air throw, cannot hit opponents on the ground. D 
    version goes higher than B does.
 8. SHERMIE CUTE: Followup attack for Shermie Spiral, Shermie Whip and Shermie
    Clutch. May miss when used at corners.
 9. F-CAPTURED: Reversal move, can counter jumping, high and mid-level attacks 
    including special moves and DMs.
10. SHERMIE CATCH: Shermie leaps forward and reaches for opponent's head. Move
    does no damage, but Shermie switches sides with opponent while leaving 
    them vulnerable momentarily. Upon connecting, you can motion hcf+P to have
    Shermie perform a suplex. Tap P to have her extend the duration of the 
    hold (to deal more damage). The Shermie Carnival combos from this move.
11. SHERMIE CARNIVAL: Short ranged unblockable throw. The move launches faster
    now, and Shermie is invincible during the startup flash. Shermie now has a
    followup for this move, performed with f,d,df+K (the Shermie Clutch she
    uses to end the SDM version in KOF).
12. THUNDER LEG LARIAT: Shermie's HSDM from KOF2002/NeoWave. This move is no
    longer a throw: Shermie rushes forward with the lightning knee directly.
    This move comes out very quickly, but its damage is fairly low in combos
    due to damage scaling. Shermie now has a recovery animation after the move
    is performed.



 - All the Samurai Spirits characters have their A/B/C attack buttons as
   Light/Medium/Hard Slashes while D serves as the only Kick button.
 - Haohmaru and Genjuro's special moves still follow the standard notations,
   meaning Slash is A/C and Kick is B/D.
 - Asura and Nakoruru's special moves however use A/B/C for Slash and D for 
   Kick. Shiki has been changed to follow this rule as well.
 - Most of the SS characters' command attacks cannot be canceled into from 
   their normal attacks, and must be used standalone. Asura and Haohmaru do
   have some command attacks that can be canceled into.

    The original names are represented in parentheses ().
 #. Asura's far C knocks opponent back upon hitting.
 #. Asura can link his close B into his far B.
 #. Asura's command kicks can be canceled in these sequences: 
    a) b + D, db + D, f + D
    b) b + D, f + D
    c) db + D, f + D 
 1. NOLLIENNOS: Low hitting Slash that knocks down and is cancelable. His 
    crouching C is an upward aimed swing. This move can be canceled into from
    Asura's other normals, unlike other SS command attacks. The (A) Rojeref 
    or Natas will combo from this move.
 2. REIRREV: Short ranged kick that comes out fairly quickly. Basically a
    standing LK.
 3. REISOR: A short kick that hits low, basically Asura's crouching LK. You
    can cancel this into his Nolliennos.
 4. ENIRREV: A longer ranged kick than Asura's standing D, but is slower.
 5. LISSERG: An alternate jumping kick. Has slightly more range than his
    normal jumping D.
 6. SHEDOMUSA: Asura shoots 1/2/3 arrows depending on the button pressed. Each
    arrow is considered a separate projectile, so the B and C versions can 
    negate normal projectiles at the cost of doing less hits and damage. The 
    stronger the Slash used, the slower the move's startup is. The arrows will
    weave up and down slightly during flight.
 7. ROJEREF: Asura creates a lance that stabs out from the ground. Distance
    varies according to button used, with A being Asura's sweep distance, B 
    about half screen, and C about 80% screen distance. You can combo into the 
    A version, and the move juggles a hit opponent in the corner, though 
    followups are difficult. Move is SCable, but you can only combo into the 
    Natas from the A version, and only if fairly near or at the corner. Once
    launched, the lance cannot be negated, even if Asura was hit. This move can
    hit a floored opponent.
 8. NONMMAMU: Asura raises a shield, and if it meets a physical attack, spikes
    protrude from his shield, knocking down opponent. Note that the spikes'
    counterattack is a physical attack, and can be blocked if opponent 
    recovered soon enough. The button used determines which types of attacks 
    the move can reverse (this move cannot reverse low physical attacks):

    (A): High/jumping normal and command attacks. Cannot reverse specials/DMs.
    (B): Mid-level normal and command attacks. Cannot reverse specials/DMs. If
    this version reverses an attack, you may cancel this into a special move
    or the Natas (though it'll only hit up close). This version also juggles
    (C): High/jumping attacks, including special moves and DMs. This version
    can also reflect projectiles of any level, including some DMs. During the
    initial frames, this can also reverse mid-level attacks, and if it meets
    a projectile, the spikes will trigger (instead of reflecting it).
 9. ERESU: Asura turns his back to the screen as the background turns black.
    After a short pause, he steps forward and performs an unblockable sword 
    slash that knocks down and does quite a bit of damage. Asura lunges 
    forward during the B version, giving it much more range.
10. BUBEZULEEB: Asura summons a huge axe and smashes it down with a massive
    explosion. This move has significant startup time, but is unblockable and
    has full screen range. Opponent must jump to avoid taking damage, but the 
    axe itself cannot hit. If it hits up close, the explosion can connect and
    will do an extra hit.
11. LEGNA-HCRA: Asura impales his opponent with a lance from his Rojeref which
    burns opponent while holding them in place, then finishes with his Eresu. 
    This move is unblockable, and works like a throw, though it doesn't look
    like one. Upon hitting with the lance at startup, you may cancel this into
    another special move (but not the Natas). The (A) Eresu and Bebezuleeb
    will combo when canceled this way.
12. NATAS: Asuta summons his axe and slams it in front of him, creating a
    a small shockwave which has about 1/2 screen range. If it hits, he does a
    far C (a stab from his lance), traps his opponent in chains, performs a 
    fast Bubezuleeb, then finishes with several lances from his Rojeref. The
    different versions have different properties:
    (A): Launches the quickest, but has shortest range. Will combo from his 
    close/crouching A, crouching B (1st hit), b+D, or db+D.

    (B): Has longer range and hits twice when blocked. Both hits must be
    blocked or the entire animation will trigger. It's possible for the 1st
    hit to Guard Crush opponent, allowing the remainder of the move to hit.
    This version combos from his close/crouching A, close B (1st hit), 
    crouching B (1st hit), close C, db+C, close D, b+D, and db+D. Do note
    that you have to cancel quicker than the (A) version to combo from his
    A attacks and db+D.

    (C): Has longest range due to the shockwave effect when Asura slams his
    axe to the ground, but cannot hit a mid-air opponent at all. This version
    combos from his close B (1st/2nd/3rd hit), crouching B (either hit), cr C
    (1st hit) and close D.

 #. Like in SVC, Genjuro is spelt as "Genjyuro" in NGBC.
 #. Genjuro has no crouching C (the animation is the same as his far C).
 #. Genjuro's crouching D knocks down, but does not hit low. 
 1. GEKIKAZE: Upward aimed slash. The move is cancelable into specials/DMS,
    but you cannot cancel into this move.
 2. SUSO KOSURI: Low hitting kick that knocks down. You cannot cancel into
    this move. The move is cancelable into specials and DMs, but since it
    knocks down, any followups won't hit even on a Counter Hit.
 3. SANREN SATSU: C versions of Kiba and Tsuno can cross-up unless opponent
    is too far away. Unlike in SS, both versions do the same amount of damage,
    and you can now followup the C version even if it did not cross-up. Also,
    if you started with the A Kiba, using C for the Tsuno will not cause it to
    cross-up but if you started with C, using the A Tsuno will not cross up
    as well. The move comes out faster now.
 4. OUKA ZAN: Genjuro throws out a hanafuda card forward, serving as his
    projectile. The move is SCable. Note that the card will not travel all
    the way to the end of the screen, and if reflected, the card will vanish
    halfway. The C version goes further, but is slower to start.
 5. HYAKKI SATSU: Genjuro steps forward with 2(A) or 6(C) slashes. If any of
    them hit, he stabs his katana into opponent, yanks it out and kicks them
    away. C version has longer range while A is faster.
 6. KOYOUKU JIN: C goes higher than A version. Both hit twice up close on
    an opponent on the ground. C version is SCable on the first hit.
 7. GASHIN TOTSU: Genjuro charges up, then stabs forward. The move comes out
    much faster than it did in SVC, but its range is shorter and is now
    blockable. Delaying the move has no effect on its damage, but makes it 
 8. GEKKA ZAN: This move no longer juggles opponent, and is performed only
    with the B button now.
 9. URA GOKOU: Genjuro is invincible for a short moment during the startup.
    This move does not negate projectiles, and Genjuro is vulnerable even if 
    the card at the startup connects, but if he manages to finish the initial
    swing and hit opponent, Genjuro is invincible for the remainder of the 
    move's animation. This is the Bust/Rasetsu version of Genjuro's SS3/SS4 
    Weapon-Flipping Technique. It seems to come out slightly faster now.
10. GOKOU ZAN: This is the Slash/Shura version of Genjuro's SS3/SS4 
    Weapon-Flipping Technique. The move has the same properties as the Ura 
    Gokou; only the hit animation is different.
11. AYAME: This is Genjuro's Bust/Rasetsu qcb+S projectile: he performs the
    Ouka Zan, except that the card will rebound upon connecting with opponent,
    descending again for another hit. Unlike in SS, the card will rebound even
    if it hits opponent. The rebound is an overhead, and Genjuro recovers upon
    the initial hit, so you can hit opponent in between and after both hits.
    The A version will dissipate halfway when reflected, and it rebounds in
    front of opponent, while C version rebounds behind them.
12. IKARI BAKUHA: Costs all 3 levels to perform. Genjuro's skin turns red,
    during which he does more damage. The startup of this move can hit 
    opponent. Genjuro no longer has the Issen as a follow-up. Genjuro always
    powers up from this move, even if he is hit out of it.

 #. Haohmaru's close C is cancelable.
 #. Haohmaru can cancel into his Sliding Thrust, but not into the Knee Thrust.
 #. Haohmaru's far C has ridiculous stun time on a Counter hit. Even if he
    clashes with an opponent's attack, opponent remains stunned longer than
    Haohmaru, and it's possible to combo with another far C for major damage.
 1. SENPUU RETSU ZAN: Haohmaru throws a small tornado (range depends on button
    used, but neither version reaches the end of the screen). C version goes
    further and sends opponent high up (but you cannot juggle after). The
    Resshin Zan can OTG opponent after the C version hits, or you can set up
    a Zankousen instead, since opponent can't recovery roll. The Kick versions
    are fakes.
 2. RESSHIN ZAN: Haohmaru leaps forward and smashes his sword down. Move is an
    overhead and can hit opponent on the floor. (A) is faster while C goes
    further. A version does NOT knock down.
 3. ZANKOUSEN: Haohmaru charges up, then performs an unblockable far C that 
    knocks down and does quite a bit of damage. D version takes longer to
    charge up, but does insane damage (more than most level-2 DMs).
 4. KOGETSU ZAN: The move has no invincibility during the 1st swing unlike in 
    SS. The (A) version combos from light attacks. Both versions are SCable
    on the 1st hit. In a Super Cancel, (A) version combos into the Fuujin Zan 
    , while (C) version combos into the Seiou Zan. 
 5. SHIPPU KOGETSU ZAN: This move comes out faster than the normal Kogetsu Zan
    and Haohmaru goes forward a little instead of jumping staight up.
 6. TENHA SEIOU ZAN: Haohmaru performs a downward slash with a huge cone of
    energy that negates projectiles. You can't combo into this move normally,
    but it does a lot of damage even when blocked. This is Haohmaru's Weapon
    Destroyer from SS2.
 7. TENHA FUUJIN ZAN: Haohmaru does 6 continuous Kogetsu Zan. The move will
    not get full hits against an opponent in mid-air, and costs 2 levels to
 8. IKARI BAKUHA: Costs all 3 levels to perform. Haohmaru's skin turns red,
    during which he does more damage. Haohmaru can hit a nearby opponent as
    he is posing during the move's activation. Haohmaru always powers up 
    from this move, even if he is hit out of it.

 #. Nakoruru can triangle jump.
 #. Nakoruru's damage is somewhat below average when compared with the other
 1. KYAKU KASANE: A short crouching kick. This is basically her crouching LK.
 2. RENSHIBA KYAKE: Nakoruru does a kick, then hops up and flips backwards.
 3, KOSARA RETSU KYAKU: Nakoruru flips, then stomps in mid-air. The move 
    knocks down.
 4. ANNU MUTSUBE: The distance of the move varies with the button used. All
    versions will not go past opponent if blocked. The stronger the Slash
    button used, the slower the startup is, but all versions are chainable.
    Move hits low, and is SCable into the Kamui Sentek.
 5. RERA MUTSUBE: The move now does multiple hits. The stronger the button
    used, the higher and further Nakoruru goes.
 6. KAMUI RIMSE: Nakoruru swings her cape out 1/2/3 times depending on the
    button used. She can reflect projectiles with this move. Press A/B/C 
    again to perform another 2 hits that knock down opponent. 
 7. SHICHIKAPU ETU: Nakoruru calls in Mamahaha to dive in and attack. This 
    works as a projectile. You cannot repeat this move until Mamahaha returns 
    to Nakoruru.
 8. TAKA NI TSUKAMARU: Nakoruru hangs on to Mamahaha. You can move freely
    during this move. Pressing A or C will have Nakoruru slash in mid-air (the
    Elerush Kamui Rimse can combo off this move). The Yatoro Pok (B) will have
    Nakoruru jump off with a rolling slash that is an overhead, but does not
    knock down. The Kamui Mutsube (AB) is an overhead diving stab that knocks
    down. Pressing D will have Nakoruru let go and drop down without attacking
    . You can perform the Elerush Kamui Rimse while Nakoruru is hanging on to
    Mamahaha: she will dive down immediately, reducing the startup time.
    The move will end if Nakoruru goes too high or too low.
 9. ELERUSH KAMUI RIMSE: Nakoruru hops up and hangs on to Mamahaha (if she 
    isn't already on it), then dives down with a Kamui Mutsube. If it hits, 
    she does a Kamui Rimse and finishes off with a Shichikapu Etu. The command
    is qcbx2+P instead when done from the Taka Ni Tsukamaru. Nakoruru is 
    invincible as she hops up toward Mamahaha when move is done from the
    ground, and is also invincible when landing if the move misses. This move
    will get full hits against a mid-air opponent.
10. KAMUI SENTEK: Nakoruru heals, during which she is vulnerable. Nakoruru
    heals at a pretty fast rate, and this move also extends her red bar. 
    Nakoruru regains about 25% health if she completes the move. You can press
    ABC to end the move prematurely.

 qcb,hcf+D                      Shikiju (2)                   [M],#

 #. Shiki's special moves are now performed with A/B/C for Slash and only D
    for Kick.
 #. Shiki lost her Tsurane Giri (f+A/B) command attacks from SVC. She can
    still link several slashes together, such as A>B>B or A>B>A. During such
    links, only the Shikiju will connect, and only from a link ending with a
    (B) Slash. 
 #. Shiki's crouching A can combo into another normal attack, such as her
    crouching C/D.
 #. Shiki's close C is now cancelable on the 2nd hit. Previously in SVC, it
    was SCable only.
 #. Shiki's far C is now cancelable and no longer knocks down.
 #. Shiki's crouching D does not hit low or knock down. It is cancelable on
    either hit. It comes out faster now, but has a little less range.
 #. Shiki's crouching C serves as her sweep, and its range has been shortened,
    but it comes out much faster now.
 #. Shiki's close standing D is an overhead, and while it comes out slowly,
    you can combo it into her close standing C, then into a Shikiju (the Tenma
    Hajun won't connect).
 1. TENHOURIN: Shiki jumps up while spinning out her wakizashi blades. She can
    now cancel the 1st hit of the mid-air version into the Kourin.
 2. TSUYUHARAI: Shiki dashes forward with a stab. The move hits low, and is 
    much faster than it was in SVC. The stronger the Slash button used, the 
    further it goes. Move is SCable upon hitting. During the dash, Shiki has
    a very low profile, and can go under many high and mid-level attacks.
    This invincibility ends as the stabs with her wakizashi blades. 
 3. SHIZUKU GARI: Shiki flips in mid-air with her blades swung out. You MUST
    use the same button used in the Tsuyuharai, meaning qcb+A > A and so on. 
    The stronger the Slash button used, the more hits and damage this move
    does. You can cancel this into her Tenhourin or Kourin on the 1st hit.
 4. KOURIN: Shiki slashes out while descending quickly. The Slash button 
    determines the diving angle, with A being straight down, B nearly 
    vertical and C about 45 degrees. The move is NOT an overhead. Note that
    the command is now qcb+S instead of qcf.
 5. MEIKA: Shiki hops forward with an overhead kick that knocks down with no
    recovery allowed. Shiki can avoid low attacks during this move. This is 
    the D version from SVC, so it has longer range, but is slower and cannot
    be chained into.
 6. MUMYOU: Shiki grabs opponent and slits their throat. This move is an 
    unblockable throw and causes opponent's directional controls to be 
    reversed. Opponent can switch out, but unlike in SVC, the effects of this
    move stay even if either character is hit. While the effect is active, 
    there will be a skull image floating above opponent, and you cannot repeat
    the move. The skull will disappear on its own after about 7 seconds. The 
    move's command has changed, and you can no longer combo into it.
 7. SETSUNA: Shiki teleports, then reappears (the teleport distance is fixed
    and is not determined by opponent's location):
    (A) - About 1/3 screen distance in front of her.
    (B) - About 2/3 screen distance in front of her.
    (C) - About 1/4 screen distance in front of her in mid-air.
    (D) - About 2/3 screen distance in front of her in mid-air.

    Shiki is no longer invincible during the startup: she is invincible only 
    when completely disappeared, and is vulnerable again as she reappears. The
    C and D versions leave Shiki in mid-air: she can perform aerial specials 
    when you regain control of her. If Shiki materializes at opponent's 
    location, opponent will be moved back. Shiki can never teleport behind a
    cornered opponent. This move can now be done in mid-air, and the A and B
    versions will return her to ground level.
 8. SHIKIJU: Shiki regains life if this move connects, and it can also extend
    her healable life (the red bar). However, she won't heal if the move was 
    used to KO opponent.
 #. Shiki can now go under a jumping opponent during her Tenma Hajun and 
    Shikiju dash, and maintains her invincibility from SVC while dashing.
    She is NOT invincible during the startup flash however, and is vulnerable
    upon reaching her opponent.



 - Kim and Mai play like their KOF incarnations, not the RBFF versions.

 #. Geese's Reppu/Double Reppu/Shippu Ken and level 1 Rising Storm have 
    different colours depending his outfit colour. His (C) colour scheme makes
    both Rising Storm versions look identical, except for the black background
    during the level 2 Rising Storm.
 #. Geese lost his Hishou Nichiran Zan, as well as the KOF'96 versions of his
    (Double) Reppu Ken from SVC (although you can still see the effects when 
    performing the Reppu/Double Reppu Ken). His Raikou Mawashi Geri is now his
    far standing D.
 #. The Shinkuu Nage is now a special move, performed with 360+C, while the
    Rashoumon's command has been changed to 720+P.
 #. Note that Geese's reversal moves have different button placements now (A
    for high, B for mid and C for low).
 1. FUDOU SAKKATSU URAKEN: Knockdown punch. Move is now an overhead. The move
    is cancelable, but nothing will combo into or from it.
 2. RAIMEI GOUHA NAGE: This move can only be used on an opponent who's lying
    down on the floor, and Geese has to be standing over opponent's torso for
    it to launch. This move switches sides with opponent. You can use this
    after the Rising Storm hits.
 3. REPPU KEN: The move now recovers faster than it did in SVC, and you can
    follow-up with another attack if it hits when thrown at a distance. 
 4. DOUBLE REPPU KEN: The first hit can negate normal projectiles, and Geese
    will still continue to throw the 2nd projectile. In the corner, Geese
    recovers while opponent is still stunned, so you can follow this up with
    another attack.
 5. SHIPPU KEN: The projectile now travels all the way to the end of the 
    screen but can no longer negate normal projectiles unlike in SVC (it 
    clashes like normal).
 6. JAEI KEN: D has longer range and can be chained into (B version is no
    longer chainable). The move's command has returned to its Fatal Fury 
 7. ATEMI NAGE: A version counters jumping normals, and any high or mid-level
    physical specials/DMs (even if they are unblockable). B version counters
    mid-level normal and command attacks only. C version counters low hitting
    attacks, including special moves/DMs. Geese's counterattacks are throws 
    and cannot be escaped from if triggered, and only the C version can be 
    recovery rolled from. The moves launch slightly slower now. You can SC
    the B version into the level-2 Rising Storm.
 8. RISING STORM: Is back to the KOF'96 "cage" style animation. The move can
    negate normal and DM projectiles, though Geese isn't actually invincible.
    The old alternate command (hcb,hcb,df+P) works here. Compared with KOF
    NeoWave, this move is much easier to exacute now (though still not as 
    forgiving as in SVC).
 9. RISING STORM (AC): The AC version cannot be launched standalone, and must
    be chained from Geese's crouching (A) or SCed from his Chuudan Atemi Nage. 
    It costs 2 levels to use. This version is indicated with the screen 
    turning black, and the energy cage is red in colour.
10. DEADLY RAVE: Geese is invincible during the startup and for part of the
    dash. The remaining hits can be performed if the Deadly Rave is blocked,
    but not if it misses. You can interrupt the move with a Double Assault. 
    It's pretty easy to get the entire sequence to hit now as there's a slight
    delay between hit, and the move is pretty tolerant of input timings now.
    The move costs all 3 stock bars to use.  
 #. There's been plenty of debate over the Rising Storm's actual name, with
    the most common alternatives being Raging Storm and Raising Storm. I got 
    the move name from the official KOF10th website, the KOF EX in-game move 
    list, as well as the Real Bout Fatal Fury and KOF'96 move cards.

 #. Chonrei is able to link some normal attacks together like in Real Bout 
    Fatal Fury.
 1. TATSU SATSU ASHI: Chonrei hops forward with an overhead hick. It's pretty
    slow however, and does not combo from normals.
 2. JINSOKU KEN: Chonrei steps forward with an elbow attack that does not 
    knock down. Move is SCable.
 3. TENGAN KEN: The projectile starts out slowly, but accelerates in speed as
    it travels.
 4. TENJI KEN: Chonrei spins upward with energy spiraling around him. His
    version hits once, but Chonrei jumps diagonally, giving it more range than
    Chonshu's. Move is SCable.
 5. TASHIN KEN: Chonrei reflects projectiles; this move does not hit opponent.
 6. RYU TENSHIN: Chonrei rolls forward. Move does not hit and has no 
 7. TATSU TENSHIN KOUHOU: Chonrei rolls backward. Move does not hit and has no 
 8. ROJIN KEN: If the move hits, Chonrei regains some health. However, this
    move will not heal Chonrei beyond his red bar. Note that Chonrei will not
    heal if he is struck by an attack even if the projectile hits opponent.
 9. SHUKMYO KEN: Chonrei throws a projectile. Hold P to have it continue, and
    when released it will explode into several other ball lightning and trap
    opponent in place. The explosion negates multiple projectiles (even DMs).
    Unlike in RBFF, Chonrei will not throw a gold Tengan Ken if you didn't
    hold down the P button; the ball lightning will just appear directly in
    front of him instead. This was Chonrei's S Power Special in RBFF. Note
    that the projectile cannot hit on its own until released. Chonrei is
    immune to high/mid level attacks from startup flash until the move is
    released. You can continue holding it until it flies off-screen, and it
    can even be triggered even if slightly outside the screen.
10. RYUSEI KEN: An image of a dragon's head appears as Chonrei fires out a 
    beam. This move comes out very quickly and has about 1/3 screen range.
    This was his P Power Special in RBFF, but is now a level 1 DM. The beam
    cannot be negated, and will defeat any negateable projectile.
11. TEIOU GYAKURIN KEN: Autocombo DM. Has very short range as the move is done
    standing still, and Chonrei will not perform the entire animation if the
    move misses (but all the hits will launch if move is blocked). The 6th
    hit is a low attack.

 #. Chonshu is able to link some normal attacks together like in RBFF (his
    links are different from Chonrei's).
 #, Chonshu's Combination A will switch sides if the last hit connects unless
    opponent was in the corner, but it does not cross-up. The last hit also 
    knocks down, and in the corner, you can juggle opponent. None of the hits
    after the first are cancelable.
 1. CHOP: Chonshu does an overhead chop. When canceled into it becomes 
 2. TETSUKAI ATAMA: Chonshu rolls forward. This is a low attack.
 3. JINSOKU KEN: Choshu steps forward with an elbow strike. If it connects,
    he will throw opponent, switching sides in the process.
 4. TENGAN KEN: Chonshu's projectile can be crouched under, and it will not 
    clash with floor-level projectiles, so both will pass through each other.
    This travels at a constant speed, unlike Chonrei's.
 5. TATSU TOMOSHIBI: Chonshu does a downward chop (has rather short range) 
    with an energy-filled hand, then tosses them upward. If move hits, you 
    can motion hcb+K to have Chonshu teleport after and hit opponent several
    times in mid-air, teleporting between each hit. The move will now combo
    from light attacks, and while opponent is stunned from the Tomoshibi, 
    Chonshu is invincible to any other on-screen attacks.
 6. TENJI KEN: Chonshu spins upward with energy spiraling around him, doing
    multiple hits. In the corner, you can juggle opponent after this hits.
    Chonshu's version goes straight up.
 7. JINGAN KEN: Teleport move. Chonshu reappears:
    (A): At the same spot
    (B): In mid-air above opponent.
    (C): Behind opponent, unless they were at the corner (appears in front of
         opponent in this case).
    You can press any button to have Chonshu perform a downward rolling attack
    after he reappears during the B version.
 8. KOBUSHI: Mid-air teleport move: Chonshu reappears in mid-air above 
    opponent. You can press any button to have Chonshu perform a downward 
    rolling attack after he reappears.
 9. ROJIN KEN: If the move hits, Chonshu regains some health (it extends his
    red bar). His version can be done in mid-air. If it KOed opponent, Chonshu
    will not heal from this move. This was his S Power Special from RBFF. Note 
    that Chonshu will not heal if he is struck by an attack even if the 
    projectile hits opponent.
10. SHUKMYO KEN: Chonshu throws a multi-hit projectile directly in front of 
    him. The move negates multiple projectiles (even DMs), and if it hits 
    opponent in the corner, you can follow-up with another attack, such as the
    Tenji Ken. A version is faster, while (C) has high/mid-level invincibility
    from startup until he throws the projectile. If move is done at the corner
    and too much of the projectile is off-screen, the move will cancel by
11. KAIRYU SHORIN: Chonshu hops slightly, and fires a streak of energy in the 
    form of a dragon in front of him. The energy streak cannot be negated.
    This was his P Power Special in RBFF. For a level 2 DM, this move's damage
    is rather weak.

 #. Kim's jumping C is now cancelable into the Kuu Sajin or Hou'ou Kyaku.
 1. NERI CHAGI: Overhead kick, won't combo from normal attacks. If canceled
    into, the move does 2 hits and is cancelable on the 2nd hit.
 2. SANREN GEKI: This ends with the Double Dechagi. This was his qcb(x3)+C in
 3. SANKUU KYAKU: Kim's qcb+P,uf+K,d+K move from 2002/2003/NeoWave. The 3rd
    hit is an overhead that cannot be recovered from. Kim is off the ground
    during the 2nd hit and any of the followups, making him immune to low
    attacks and floor-level projectiles.
 #. Kim has several combinations for his Sanren Geki/Sankuu Kyaku mixups.
    Below is a detailed breakdown of all his possible combination:

    qcb+P           - Sanren Geki/Sankuu Kyaku (1st hit)
     1> qcb+A       - Sanren Geki (2nd hit)
       1a> qcb+A    - Double Dechagi (NOT SCable)
       1b> qcb+C    - Neri Chagi (overhead, does not combo from previous hit)
      2> qcb+C      - Sankuu Kyaku (2nd hit, immune to low attacks)
       2a> qcb+A    - Double Dechagi (SCable on 2nd hit)
       2b> qcb+C    - Sankuu Kyaku (3rd hit, overhead, no-recovery knockdown)
       2c> d,u+A    - Kuu Sajin (SCable on 2nd hit) 

 4. HANGETSU ZAN: B version does one hit while (D) does 3. Both versions knock
    down, and B version is SCable.
 5. HAKI KYAKU: Low attack; D version knocks down, while B version is SCable.
    D version can hit a floored opponent. Move negates normal floor-level 
    projectiles and cannot be reversed.
 6. HISHOU KYAKU: Kim's descending version from KOF95-2001 and 2003. You can
    no longer cancel into this move from Kim's normals.
 7. RYUSEI RAKU: 1st hit is a low attack and his SCable. 2nd hit knocks down
    with no recovery permitted, and D version is an overhead. The move is 
    slightly faster from KOF2003, but still slower than it was in KOF2000.
 8. HIEN ZAN: 3rd hit of D version is SCable into the Hou'ou Kyaku.
 9. TENSHOU ZAN: Usable only from a (D) Hien Zan if it hits or is blocked. The
    move is an overhead that knocks down with no recovery permitted.
10. KUU SAJIN: A does 2 hits, C does 3. The move can now be done in mid-air. 
    Note that C version will miss after the 1st hit when used on an opponent 
    on the ground, leaving Kim wide open to attacks. The move comes out faster
    than it did in KOF98. Both ground and air versions are SCable.
10. HOU'OU HITEN KYAKU: An upward aimed kick that launches opponent. The 
    Hou'ou Kyaku or a D-Assault make good followups. The move now hits twice
    when blocked, but it comes out slightly slower. The B version sends
    opponent flying back, so only the Hou'ou Kyaku will combo reliably in the
    open. D version works like KOF versions and launches opponent straight up.

 #. Mai's sprite has been slightly changed from her KOF version, and she has
    more animations for some of her moves.
 #. Mai can triangle jump.
 1. DAIRIN FUSHA OTOSHI: Move knocks down if it hits an opponent in mid-air.
    Can be canceled into the Musasabi no Mai. This move is NOT an overhead.
 2. UKIHANE (command move): Overhead move. Can be canceled into, but won't
    combo. Opponent cannot use recovery roll from this move.
 3. KURO TSUBAME NO MAI: Overhead kick, knockdown. When canceled into, the
    move becomes cancelable into aerial specials. Mai can avoid low attacks
    during this move. B and D versions have different animations when used 
    standalone, with B doing 2 hits. This move is cancelable even if it 
 4. KOUKAKU NO MAI: 1st hit always hit low, and 2nd hit always knocks down,
    even when move is canceled into. 1st hit is cancelable if canceled into.
    This move can combo from light attacks. The timing to cancel the move is
    very lax now: as long as you perform your specials/DM before the 2nd hit
    connects, you should be able to cancel this move.
 5. RYU ENBU: Can negate normal projectiles. A does 1 hit, C version does 2 
    hits and is SCable on the 1st hit.
 6. SAYO CHIDORI: Can negate normal projectiles. Only B version is chainable.
    Move is SCable.
 7. MUSASABI NO MAI (Kuuchuu): This move is no longer an overhead. You can
    SC this into the Kuchuu Gekka Botan.
 8. MUSASABI NO MAI (Chijou): Mai leaps toward the wall (ub-behind her, 
    u-nearest, uf-opposite wall) and if you held down the P button, she 
    launches a Musasabi no Mai (Kuuchuu). Otherwise, you can perform the
    other followups after she rebounds from the wall. Mai jumps faster now.
 9. TOKITSUBUTE: Unblockable throw, this move has the unique property of
    being able to hit opponent on the ground or mid-air. It now has a miss
    animation. Since the Musasabi No Mai (Chijou) arcs higher now, it's much
    harder to connect this move on an opponent on the ground.
10. KAGEROU NO MAI: Mai's flame spiral DM from RBFF and KOF2003. The flames
    cannot be negated and will launch even if Mai is hit. You can't combo into
    this move, but it juggles a hit opponent on a Counter Hit.
11. KUUCHUU GEKKA BOTAN: Mai dives with an attack, and upon hitting, zigzags
    past her opponent several times before leaping away with an explosion. B
    and D versions have different startup animations, with (B) being a diving
    kick at a sharp angle, while (D) starts with a Musasabi no Mai (Kuuchuu).
    This move costs 2 levels to use.

 #. Tung has a very low profile, and at a distance Mizuchi's Kaijo or Yuki's 
    Beast Buster will miss Tung while he's on the ground.
 #. The muscular form that appears above Tung during his Gekihou and both 
    level 1 DMs can hit opponent. You have to hit Tung directly to knock him 
    out of those moves: attacks hitting the muscular form but not Tung's body
    will not harm him. Projectiles can hit Tung as normal however. Tung is 
    vulnerable to low attacks during the Gekihou and Teigeki Ken, though 
    opponent may get hit trying to sweep him.
 1. KOURIN HAZAKI: Tung steps forward and does an overhead chop while holding
    a Shou Ha. The move becomes cancelable when canceled into.
 2. SENSHIPPO: Tung hops forward with a punch. It looks rather like Gato's
    Shin-Ga. The EX version costs 0.5 levels to use, but does more hits and
    damage. In the corner, you can followup after the EX version hits; the
    Ressen Kyaku works well.
 3. SHOU HA: Tung tosses a gray ball-shaped projectile forward that does not
    leave his hands. This move doesn't knock down.
 4. DAISHOU HA: Tung fires a gray beam forward that has about 1/2 screen range
    and knocks down.
 5. RESSEN KYAKU: Tung kicks upward, then jumps up with multiple kicks. The
    EX version does more damage and goes slightly further, but requires 0.5
    levels to use. Both normal and EX versions are SCable on the 1st hit.
    When SCed, the move launches opponent straight up, 
 6. GEKIHOU: Tung charges up into his muscular form, which can hit as he's
    transforming. Works pretty well as an anti-air. Move is SCable on any hit
    , but neither DM will hit unless the move hits an airborne opponent.
 7. RAIMEI KYAKU: Tung does a diving kick at steep angle (similar to Akuma's).
    This move is an overhead.
 8. JOUJIKEN: Tung dives diagonally downward with a punch that knocks down.
    This is NOT an overhead.
 9. KUUCHUU SENPUUKEN: Tung spins with arms extended (like Zangief's Double
    Lariat) while traveling in an arc. If it hits late on an opponent on the
    ground, it's possible to followup with another attack.
10. SENPUU GOUKEN: Tung hops up and spins forward with arms extended and as 
    he spins, he turns into his muscular form. Tung is immune to low attacks 
    during this move. This was Tung's S Power Special in RBFF.
11. TEIGEKI KEN: Tung turns into his muscular form (the move can hit as he's
    changing), steps forward and smashes downwards with one arm on each side.
    This move can hit an opponent who's behind Tung and was his P Power 
    Special in RBFF.
12. CHOU SHOU NAMI: Tung turns into his muscular form, charges up, and
    releases a beam of energy (parodying a certain character from Dragon Ball
    Z). Note that Tung is NOT immune to attacks during the charging phase.
    Unlike his other transformation moves, Tung's body cannot hit opponent.
    Surprisingly, the beam doesn't negate projectiles, but cannot be negated.
    Also, the move must be blocked in its entirety: if opponent somehow got 
    hit during any part of the move, they take full hits and damage. This move
    costs all 3 levels to perform.


 - The MOTW characters do not have their T.O.P In CD attacks here (except for
   Hotaru as a special move), as well as their Feint moves.
 - As in MOTW, Hotaru and Rock's command throws cannot be chained into.
 - Only Rock has full access to all his S and P Power Specials from Garou.
   Hotaru and Terry have one S and one P Power move each.
 - The MOTW characters are able to Break certain special moves. This basically
   cuts short the move's animation, allowing your character to recover faster,
   and possibly setting up for another attack. Unlike in MOTW, you cannot 
   Break a whiffed move.

 #. The Hakki Shou and Soushou Shin are slower now.
 #. Getting hit automatically ends Hotaru's stances.
 #. Unless stated, making a stance attack will end Hotaru's stance,
 #. The Hantentou air throw has a miss animation, and she will turn around in
    mid-air without being able to do anything until she lands in such a case.
    You cannot air throw an opponent behind Hotaru.
 #. Hotaru has a very low profile during her En Un Juurokushu stance, allowing 
    her to avoid most high attacks and some mid-level attacks.
 1. SENGEKI SHUU: Hotaru does a far standing D, and goes into En Un Juurokushu
    stance after that. She won't go into stance if this move is canceled into,
    but move becomes cancelable instead. The move has autoguard before she 
    kicks, and knocks down with no recovery permitted, unless canceled into.
 2. SENGEKI SHU: Hotaru does a crouching C and goes into Ri En stance after 
    that. This move combos from light attacks.
 3. KOUSHUU DA: Hotaru stomps down (which is an overhead attack). The move is
    cancelable into an aerial normal or special.
 4. SOUSHOU SHIN: Hotaru hops forward while spinning with two palm attacks 
    that knock down. The move now comes out far slower than it did in Garou, 
    and only A version is chainable.
 5. KOBI KYAKU: Upward aimed kick, can reflect projectiles (even DMs). Juggles 
    opponent upon hitting. You can Break this move. 
 6. RENGEKI SHOU: Hotaru dives down with a knee attack followed by a kick
    that knocks down. Button used determines the diving angle (B is steeper).
 7. TENSHIN SHOU: Hotaru hops up while spinning, serving as her anti-air.
    A does 2 hits while C does 6. This was originally f,d,df+K in MOTW. The
    move's command requires fairly strict motioning or you'll get her Hakki 
    Shou instead.
 8. SHINJOU TAI: Hotaru step forward onto opponent and kicks them away. This
    move is an unblockable throw, but you cannot combo into it.
 9. BREAKING: Cancels the moves marked with a *. You can no longer Break a 
    move if it misses; only if it hits or is blocked.
10. EN UN JUUROKUSHU NO KAMAE: Stance move, during which Hotaru can move
    back and forth slowly and dash, but cannot jump or block. You can press 
    b+BD to switch into the Ri En stance.

    (A): Hotaru does a palm strike from the last hit of her Soushou Shin. 
    (B): Hotaru does a quick low kick that combos into itself. She remains in 
    stance after this move.
    (C,A): Hotaru does a chop, then a palm strike (looks like her Hakki Shou
    without the projectile) that knocks down. The 1st punch is a Counter
    (D): Overhead kick (Hotaru's AB from MOTW). You can no longer cancel this
    into a Rengeki Shou before she kicks.
    (d+D,f+B): Hotaru does a low kick followed by a standing kick.
    (u+K): Hotaru flips up with a kick (her T.O.P In CD attack from MOTW). 
    This move knocks down. The D version goes higher.
    (b,b): Ends stance without attacking.    

11. RI EN NO KAMAE: You can only enter this stance through the Sengeki Shu or
    b+BD while in Juurukushu stance. Hotaru cannot move normally or block, and
    can only dash forward. You can press d+AC to switch back to the En Un 
    Juurokushu stance. Hotaru will also end this stance after a while if no
    attack was made.
    (A): Hotaru does the spin from her Soushou Shin. Using this puts Hotaru in
    the En Un Juurokushu stance.
    (B): Hotaru does her standing B.
    (C): Hotaru does a backward palm chop similar to her df+C, except she 
    performs it standing. She remains in stance after this move, and you can 
    combo another move after it hits. Move is also SCable, but only into the
    Soushou Tenrenge.
    (D): Hotaru does a kick similar to her Kobi Kyaku without the blue glow;
    this move cannot reflect projectiles. This move juggles a hit opponent and
    is Breakable. Surprisingly, her Hantentou air throw can combo from this if
    you Break it.
    (CD): Hotaru's basic throw, usable in this stance.
    (f,f+BD): Hotaru hops forward and flips with an overhead kick downwards.
    This move cannot hit from up close, and does not hit until Hotaru kicks.
    (b,b): Ends stance without attacking.
12. SOUSHOU TENRENGE: Hotaru does 2 Shoushou Shin, followed by a Tenshin Shou
    before finishing with a diving knee attack. The last hit is an overhead if
    it connects on its own, but it will not knock down. This is the P Power 
    version, and costs 2 stock bars to use.
13. TENSHOU RANKI: The move can hit opponent while rising and descending,
    though it will do less damage if only the descending part hits. It's 
    possible for the descending attack to cross-up. D version descends at a
    shallower angle. The screen resets to center after this move hits.

 #. The Upper and Lower Evade are not immune to mid-level attacks, and you
    cannot cancel into them from normals (but the Upper Evade is cancelable).
 1. UPPER EVADE: Rock does an elbow attack, and is immune to high attacks
    during that time. The move comes out slower than it did in Garou.
 2. LOWER EVADE: Rock steps forward with an overhead kick, and is immune to
    low attacks during that time. The move has less range now, but you can
    cancel the move before Rock kicks out, working as a fake-out.
 3. OVERHEAD: Overhead kick, followup for Rock's close D. This move cannot be
    used on its own: his close standing D must hit or be blocked to be able to
    use it. It now combos from his standing D, and is cancelable, but the kick
    pushes opponent pretty far back upon hitting, so only the (D) Shine 
    Knuckle will reliably combo from it in the open.
 4. REPPU KEN: The move is slower than it was in Garou and may not combo from
    a jump-in followed by a hard attack. The Shine Knuckle (both versions)
    will no longer combo from this move when used at a certain distance.
 5. DOUBLE REPPU KEN: The first hit can negate normal projectiles, and Rock
    will still continue to throw the 2nd projectile. The move is now slower
    and will not combo from Rock's normals, even when done in the corner.
 6. HARD EDGE: Rock rushes forward with an elbow attack that knocks down. C
    version has Rock performing an additional palm strike. A version is SCable
    (only the Rising Storm will hit properly, and only in the corner). (C) 
    version is slower and will only combo from a single hard attack but cannot
    be recovered from. The (A) version no longer combos from light attacks.
 7. RISING TACKLE: A does 3 hits, while C does 4 and goes higher. The move
    is SCable on the 1st or 2nd hits.
 8. COUNTER CRACK: B counters high and mid-level attacks, including specials
    and DMs. D version counters low-hitting normal and command attacks only.
    Rock's counterattack is a physical attack, and can be blocked if opponent 
    recovered soon enough (which can happen if opponent used a light attack).
 9. RAGE RUN: B version is a no-recovery overhead attack that cannot be
    chained into (but comes out pretty fast). D version does not hit, but Rock
    switches sides with opponent upon reaching them. The D version now has a
    bit of recovery after Rock has switched directions, and you cannot perform
    a Shinkuu Nage immediately after. Rock is invincible for a very brief 
    moment halfway during the dash for the D version.
10. SHINKUU NAGE: Unblockable command throw. You cannot combo into this move.
    Upon hitting, you can press AB before Rock poses to cancel the recovery 
    allowing you to followup with another move (the Rising Storm works well).
    Alternately, hold down AB and release to have Rock launch a beam (the 
    Rasetsu) at opponent. The timing for the Rasetsu is easier now, and will
    hit so long as the beam touches opponent. Jumping attacks cannot hit 
    opponent unless Rock was cornered: you have to use a ground attack or
    special move to followup the Breaking. 
11. RISING STORM (A): The move can negate normal and DM projectiles, but Rock
    has no invincibility throughout the entire duration. The move juggles a
    hit opponent.
12. RISING STORM (C): This is the P Power version from Garou, and costs 2
    levels to use. It can be delayed, covers a larger screen area and does 4
    hits. As with the A version, Rock has no invincibility. The move juggles a
    hit opponent, but is slightly slower to start compared with the A version.
13. SHINE KNUCKLE (B): Rock dashes forward with a 5-hit punch. The move does 
    less hits and damage the further away Rock is from opponent.
14. SHINE KNUCKLE (D): Rock dashes forward with a single hit punch. Upon
    hitting, he does an elbow attack, followed by a 9-hit Rising Tackle. This
    version will stop at the first hit if blocked, and will not get full hits
    against a mid-air opponent. Move costs 2 stock bars to use.
15. DEADLY RAVE NEO: Unlike Geese, Rock is not invincible during this move,
    but he dashes faster. You can now perform the remaining hits if the move
    is blocked. The move can be interrupted only with a Double Assault. The
    sequence timing is far more lenient than in Garou, and you must tap at a
    far slower pace now for the hits to even launch. Move costs all 3 stock 
    bars to use.

 #. Terry does not have the Backspin Kick and Power Stream moves from KOF2003,
    though the Power Stream makes a cameo appearance during his Special Double
    Assault with Rock.
 #. Terry's far C is now cancelable, but his crouching B and Combination Blow 
    are no longer cancelable.
 1. POWER WAVE: Move can now hit opponent lying on the ground. If you used
    this to follow up his Breaking, you can connect another Power Wave while
    opponent is lying on the ground in the corner.
 2. POWER CHARGE: B version comes out faster and is chainable (though it may 
    not get full hits in the open). D version only chains from a single hard 
    attack, but has longer range. The second hit is SCable, though only the 
    Buster Wolf will reliably combo from it in the open.
 3. CRACK SHOOT: Move is an overhead and works like the KOF2003 version (does
    multiple hits but does not knock down). It comes out slower now, but the B
    version is still chainable.
 4. POWER DUNK: The 2nd hit (the dunk) is an overhead. If all 3 hits connect,
    the move cannot be recovered from. The move executes much faster now. The
    D version goes higher and further.
 5. BREAKING: You can use this move if the first hit of the Power Dunk hits or
    is blocked to cancel the Power Dunk into a forward dodge. Terry recovers 
    faster now. If you used this after the Power Dunk hits, opponent will be
 6. CHARGE RUN/KICK: Terry dashes forward. If you press B or D, he performs a
    low-hitting kick that knocks down (although the animation looks like an
 7. BUSTER WOLF: Terry will stop if the 1st hit is blocked. This move can hit
    a juggled/mid-air opponent, though the 'blast' may miss if opponent was
    too high up. Terry is immune to other on-screen attacks during the 'blast'
    animation, which won't occur if the move traded hits with opponent.
 8. POWER GEYSER: The geyser(s) cannot be negated, even if Terry is struck
    (which juggles a hit opponent in this case). The Double Geyser juggles 
    opponent: you can follow up with another special or the Buster Wolf.

 #. Lee can link his standing close A,B and C attacks (Combination), and the
    Combination is cancelable.
 #. You can only use the Kuuchuu Combination to followup his close standing D
    or his Hyakuretsu Ken Finish if they hit.
 #. Lee's close standing D juggles opponent.
 1. KASHIRA SAI KYAKU: Lee does a kick in the opposite direction, serving as
    a cross-up attack similar to Iori's Yuri Ori. This knocks down if it hits
    an opponent in mid-air.
 2. KUUTEN TSUME: Lee hops up and spins forward with a multi-hit claw attack.
    C version has a short pause before Lee attacks, but goes further and does
    more hits. The move knocks down.
 3. HYAKURETSU KEN: Lee punches forward, and if it hits, he does a multiple
    claw strike similar to Ryo's Zanretsu Ken. For the qcf+P finish, you need
    to use the same button you used for the Hyakuretsu Ken. It interrupts the
    Hyakuretsu Ken with an upward aimed punch that juggles opponent: you can
    jump immediately after to follow with a Kuuchuu Combination.
 4. 100 REN ASHI: Lee hops forward while kicking repeatedly (it looks a little
    like Gato's Rai-Ga from Garou:MOTW, except this move goes mostly forward).
    This move is SCable into the Shinkuu Kuuten Tsume.
 5. HISARU HAPAKI: Lee grabs opponent and switches side with them. This move
    does no damage but leaves opponent open to attacks for a moment.
 6. HISARU KABEKAKE: Lee hops up to the wall opposite him for the P version
    and rebounds off at the screen's ceiling. If you used the K version, Lee 
    jumps to the wall behind him and rebounds off at half-screen height. This
    move does not attack on its own.

    (P): Lee hops again in mid-air. Does not attack.
    (P,P): Lee stabs his claws downwards, knocking down opponent. This is an
    (K): Lee does a downward aimed kick.
    (qcf+K): Lee flies forward with a kick while upside-down.
    (qcf,qcf+P): Lee dives down while spinning with his claws out. If the move 
    hits, he switches into a autocombo attack. Note that this version is 
    different from the normally launched version despite having the same name.
 7. KACHOU HI MASHIZUME: Lee rolls forward in mid-air with his claws extended.
    Lee can avoid low attacks during this move.
 8. HISHOU SHOUTEN HI MASHIZUME: Similar to the Kachou Hi Mashizume, except
    Lee jumps diagonally upwards with the rolling slash. C version has a bit
    of startup pause, during which Lee is invincible. 
 9. SHINKUU KUUTEN TSUME: Lee performs a Kuuten Tsume while falling diagonally
    forward. The move will not get full hits on an opponent on the ground.

 #. Mr. Big's crouching C serves as his sweep. His crouching D does not knock
    down, but is a low attack and cancelable.
 1. CHOPSTICK: Mr. Big swings one baton upward, then the other downward. The
    move will only hit once on its own, then Mr. Big slides back. If canceled
    into, both hits will connect. This move has pretty short range however.
 2. STAB STICK: Mr. Big pauses a moment, then stabs forward with one baton.
    This is essentially his CD attack from KOF'96. This move won't combo from
    normal attacks.
 3. GROUND BLASTER: Short ranged ground level projectile that knocks down. You
    can't seem to combo into this move from normal attacks. The C version
    knocks down. Either version is SCable, but unlike most Super Cancels,
    SCing early will not launch the projectile. This makes SCing the C version
    somewhat difficult, as you have to SC after the projectile launches and 
    hits, but before opponent lands.
 4. CRAZY DRUM: Mr. Big steps forward while swinging his batons repeatedly.
    The move now knocks down. D version does more hits and goes further, but
    the move's hitting range is still pretty short. There is a short pause
    during the D version, during which Mr. Big seems to be invincible. You
    can tap the button used to increase the number of hits before he does the
    last knockdown hit.
 5. CALIFORNIAN ROMANCE: Uppercut move. (A) is performed standing still, while
    Mr. Big dashes forward before launching the uppercut for the C version. C
    version is SCable on the 3rd hit, and any of his DMs will combo.
 6. CROSS DIVING: Mr. Big dives forward with his batons extended. This move
    knocks down and can avoid low attacks.
 7. SPINNING LANCER: Mr. Big spins while holding out his batons. BD spins more
    times and goes further. The move does one hit (unless used up close, where
    it hits twice), and knocks down. He no longer stabs forward at the end of
    the move unlike KOF'96. Move is immune to high/mid-level attacks at the 
    start, and you can move Mr. Big around while he's spinning.
 8. BLASTER WAVE: Short ranged projectile similar to Benimaru's Raikou Ken.
    The move can negate normal/DM projectiles, but cannot hit an opponent who
    is very close to Mr. Big and inside the range of the ball lightning.
 9. DRUM SHOT TYPHOON: Mr. Big rushes forward with an autocombo attack using
    his batons before finishing with his Californian Romance.
10. RAGING SPEAR: Mr. Big reaches out to grab opponent (this is unblockable). 
    If it hits, he throws opponent high up, and catches them upon landing with
    his batons and sort of shakes opponent rapidly before slamming them to the
    ground. This move comes out pretty quickly, and can be chained into.

 #. For convenience (on my part), I will refer to Mr. Karate as Ryo.
 #. Ryo can chain his crouching B with a crouching C. It's now ridiculously
    easy to do so: you can just tap B,C without having to wait for Ryo to
    retract his leg first.
 #. Note that the Moh Koh Raijin Satsu's command has changed, and Ryo has
    two different versions of the Hien Shippu Kyaku.
 #. Ryo's normal attacks have different animations from his KOF version. 
 1. HYOUCHUU WARI: Overhead chop, unless canceled into.
 2. JOUDAN/GEDAN UKE: Both moves cannot hit opponent and is used to parry
    incoming attacks. Joudan Uke autoguards jumping, high and mid-level
    attacks, while Gedan Uke works against low and crouching mid-level
    attacks and floor level projectiles. Both versions can parry mid-level
    projectiles of any type. The move is cancelable if it autoguards an 
 3. KO'OH KEN: Short ranged projectile that negates normal projectiles. The 
    move cannot be negated, but it won't hit if Ryo is struck with a DM 
    projectile. C version is no longer chainable.
 4. KOHOU: Is back to the AOF/KOF94-2001 version where Ryo performs it facing
    the screen.
 5. MOH KOH RAIJIN SATSU: Overhead chop. The move can now hit an opponent
    lying on the floor, and will combo from his crouching D if opponent did
    not use a recovery roll (and you can repeat the move to hit opponent while
    they're down).
 6. KOHOU SHIPPU KEN: Ryo steps back a little, then lunges forward with a
    punch (the move looks rather like Takuma's KOF2002 Ko'oh Ken). A version
    does not knock down, but is chainable and SCable. C version does 2 hits,
    knocks down, and is SCable on either hit. Ryo has autoguard while moving
    forward. You can cancel this into the db,f+K Hien Shippu Kyaku of the same
    strength type, meaning hcb+A -> db,f+B and hcb+C -> cb,f+D.
 7. HIEN SHIPPU KYAKU (db,f+K): This is Ryo's standard version from KOF. B is 
    faster, chainable from light buttons, and does 2 hits up close. D version
    goes further and does 3 hits up close. The move no longer loses hits when
    chained into at the open. You can also perform this move with hcf+K, and
    move can go past low attacks.
 8. HIEN SHIPPU KYAKU (hcb+K): This is similar to Takuma's version in KOF2002.
    B version is very fast and is stationary, while D version goes forward a
    little. Both versions hit twice and knock down. This can't go past low
    attacks, but cannot be recovered from. The move's damage is pretty poor
 9. ZANRETSU KEN: Either version has autoguard just before he attacks. You
    cannot combo into this move from normal attacks.
10. HAOH SHOKOU KEN: DM projectile, negates normal projectiles. Can be negated
    by certain non-negateable projectiles. C version is no longer chainable
    from normal attacks. The move is slightly slower now, and will not combo 
    from a SCed (A) Kohou Shippu Ken. Ryo is now immune to high and mid-level
    attacks during the startup flash.
11. TENCHI HAOH KEN: The move no longer dizzies a hit opponent, nor does it do
    far more damage on a Counter Hit. Ryo can negate normal projectiles if his
    fist connects with it, but the move has no autoguard. This launches slower
    now, and no longer combo from light attacks, but knocks off a significant
    chunk of your opponent's Guard Meter if blocked.
12. TENCHI NO JOGE KAMAE: This move does do damage on its own, and you have 
    to push the joystick direction individually for each hit (which means 
    rotating the joystick between directions will not work). Ryo has full body
    autoguard during each hit of the Buryoko Ranbu, but not during the startup
    flash of this move (he gains autoguard as he inhales to prepare for the
    1st hit).
13. RYUKO RANBU: Ryo is immune to high and mid-level attacks during the
    forward dash, but not during the startup flash. The invincibilitiy ends as
    soon as Ryo reaches opponent, or at the end of the dash. The move can now
    hit juggled opponents, such as after the the (C) Kohou Shippu Ken. Move
    costs 2 levels to use, but the animation is the DM version (single hit
    Kohou finisher).

 #. Robert has been completely redone, and some of his moves look and work 
    differently from his AOF or KOF versions.
 #. Robert's attacks generally have less range than in KOF.
 #. Robert's crouching B is not cancelable in NGBC.
 1. KOURYUU KOUKYAKU GERI: Robert's f+A overhead attack from KOF. The move is
    a little slower now. When canceled into, you can cancel this into the Hien
    Ryujin Kyaku.
 2. RYU HANSHUU: Robert's cancelable b/f+B kick from KOF.
 3. MAOH GERI: Robert does a slow kick (which appears to be an overhead). If
    you hold down the B button, Robert will feint this move. You can't seem
    to combo into this move.
 4. URA KEN: Robert's b+A backfist attack from KOF. Move juggles upon hitting.
 5. KAITEN GERI: Robert does a roundhouse kick that knocks down. You can't
    combo into this move.
 6. RYU-GEKI KEN: The P version can be crouched under. The K version hits low
    , but is slightly slower to launch. Both P and K versions are SCable, and
    you can have both versions on-screen at once, together with the Haoh Sho
    Koh Ken. Unlike other Super Cancels, you can SC this move regardless of
    whether it hits or not, and the projectile will still launch.
 7. RYU ZANSHOU: D version goes higher than B and goes slightly forward. It 
    seems both versions only do one hit now.
 8. GEN'EI KYAKU: The move can now be chained into, but its range is shorter
    compared with the KOF version. Robert now does a single kick, and he'll 
    only perform the remaining kicks if the move hits.
 9. HIEN SENPUU KYAKU: B version is faster while D goes slightly further. The
    move has very short range compared with his KOF version. Robert can avoid
    low attacks during this move.
10. HAOH SHOKOU KEN: DM projectile, negates normal projectiles. Can be negated
    by certain non-negateable projectiles. Robert's version can be delayed,
    and he has upper body invincibility during the startup flash.
11. RYUKO RANBU: Robert is invincible during the startup flash, but is 
    vulnerable during the forward dash. C version has a slight delay before
    Robert rushes forward, during which he is immune to non-throw attacks.
    The move can now hit juggled opponents, so it can now combo from his Ura
12. KUZURYU SEN: Robert's qcf,qcf+K DM from KOF2000. The move will not get 
    full hits against a jumping opponent, and costs 2 levels to use. It only
    does 3 hits now, which is a total rip-off considering the move's name. :)



 - All Last Blade characters have A/C for Slash while B/D are used for Kicks.
 - Characters are based off their Power Mode versions, so they can't link
   from light to hard Slashes. 
 - Characters' Slashes also do not chip a blocking opponent's health. Only
   Washizuka has the unblockable BC attack from Last Blade as a special move. 
 - With the exception of Akari, the other Last Blade characters can still
   stab an opponent on the ground (the Pounce Attack), performed with df+C. 
   Pounce Attacks can only be launched when opponent is knocked down.
 - Repels are now a special move. Repels are counter moves that leave opponent
   stunned when successfully done. The f+BD command Repels high and mid-level
   attacks, including special moves/DMs, while the b+BD command Repels low 
   attacks. You can only Repel physical attacks. The default counterattack 
   upon a successful Repel is now done by pressing BD. All ground Repels are
   SCable when triggered.
 - Kaede and Akari can Repel in mid-air. They knock down without doing any
   damage. Air Repels can work against special moves, even ground-launched
 - You can now SC into moves that were SDMs in Last Blade 2.

 #. Akari can link her crouching B into her crouching C.
 #. Akari lost her ability to mimic opponents with the Henka HitoGata, and her
    Kawari Hitogata reversal move.
 #. The Hataki, Hakineru and Hakushin are variants of her C attacks, and can
    be used standalone. You can cancel the Hataki into the Hakineru and 
    Hakushin, but not the other way round.
 1. AKIRU HAE HATAKI: Akari swings her staff forward. Move is cancelable and
    can be canceled into from normals. The followups can be done regardless of
    whether this hits or not. The followups can also performed on their ownn.
 2. AKIRU HAKINERU: Akari smashes her staff down (has pretty long range). This
    move doesn't knock down, but combos from the Mae Hataki.
 3. TENDON HODOU NO HAKUSHIN: Akari spins her staff upwards, doing two hits
    on a nearby opponent. The 1st hit is cancelable into specials/DMs and
    juggles opponent. The range for this is pretty short, and it will 
    only combo from the Hataki when used standalone in the corner, doing only
    one hit in this case. This is also her crouching C, and it can be linked
    from her other normals. Interestingly, move can also cancel from itself.
 4. SHIKIGAMI TENKU: Akari's projectile move. Surprisingly, the C version is
    faster than the A version in both launch and projectile speed.
 5. HOSHI NO MEGURI: Akari hops up and spins while blue energy surrounds her.
    Can follow-up with the Tenzuro Hokuto. Akari lost her Kakageshi Tenshin
    alternate followup for this move.
 6. TENZURO HOKUTO: is usable regardless of whether the Hoshi No Meguri hits 
    or not. Akari raises a hand, knocking down opponent if it hits. There is
    no lightning effect when the move hits now. This move is SCable.
 7. GAIKI KIYOHIME: Akari stabs her staff down (this is unblockable), and if
    it hits, she traps her opponent in a bell, which then rumbles around before
    releasing opponent.
 8. AKIRU HOMITSUKE: Akari stomps downward with both legs. This doesn't knock
    down, but stuns opponent as Akari rebounds off. You can only use the
    followups if the move hits or is blocked.
 9. SHABAN TOBASHI: Akari rolls upward, then falls while rolling, doing 
    multiple hits. Using ub or uf will have her roll in the appropriate
    direction before falling. The upward roll will combo from the Homitsuke,
    but the descending portion does not.
10. AKIRU MARI: Akari rolls away from opponent to land quickly. This move 
    doesn't hit.
11. AKIRU MARI OTOSHI: Akari rolls downward quickly, knocking down opponent. 
    This move combos from the Homitsuke.
12. AKIRU BONCHIRI: Akari stomps downward quickly with both legs. This move
    doesn't combo from the Homitsuke, but it is a no-recovery knockdown, and
    crosses up.
13. AKIRU HAYAKUKE: Akari runs forward without attacking. Pressing P has her
    slapping a palm forward, which doesn't knock down, but is SCable. Pressing
    K has her hopping forward with a kick that knocks down and is an overhead
    (her f+K from Last Blade). She can also use her normal throw during this 
    move. Tapping b,b on the joystick will stop the dash.
14. KOUMYOU ISOI: Akari slaps a talisman on her opponent, and the button used 
    determines the effects:
    (A Reifu Wosaou) - Opponent's left/right controls are reversed.
    (B Reifu Tenchimuyou) - Opponent's up/down controls are reversed.
    (C Reifu Anchoumosako) - Opponent cannot use special moves.

    You can have more than one effect active, which only goes away after 
    enough time has passed, or if opponent switches out. The (B) version 
    requires somewhat strict motioning as its command ovelaps with the Akiru 
    Hayakuke. If this move misses, Akari will stumble and fall, during which
    you can have Akari roll forward/backward by pushing the respective
    direction on the joystick. Move can hit a floored opponent, but its effect
    will not take place. The move has very short range, and is best chained 
    from her crouching C. This move cannot be reversed and costs 1/2 bar of 
    stock to use.
15. REIKOUJIN: Akari vanishes into a portal on the ground, then reappears with
    a rolling attack. For the A/B/C versions, ehe rolls diagonally downwards,
    and can follow with the Mari Koroge.
    (A) - lands at 1/4 screen distance.
    (B) - lands at 1/2 screen distance.
    (C) - lands at 3/4 screen distance.
    (D) - rolling straight down on opponent. No-recovery knockdown.
    Akari now reappears on her own (you don't see a monster spitting her out
    anymore). The D version requires fairly precise motioning.
16. MARI KOROGE: You can hold a button to have her roll after she lands during
    the A/B/C Reikoujin (keep button held down to extend the roll duration). 
    The roll now hits low.  
    (A) - Akari rolls forward.
    (B) - Akari rolls backward.
    (C) - Akari rolls in place.   
    The C version is pretty suicidal, as the move only hits once, and Akari
    still continues rolling after that.
17. RENTAYUU 13: Upon a successful Repel, you can motion qcf+AC to have Juzoh
    drop in and swing his club at opponent before leaping away. This move
    knocks down.
18. RIKUGOU: Akari hops forward and slaps a talisman. If move hits, a giant
    centipede lifts both characters off-screen before spitting opponent back 
    out. This move can be blocked low although it looks like an overhead. The
    (C) version can hit an opponent lying on the floor. Move has very short 
    range, but comes out quickly, more so with the (A) version. This move 
    cannot be reversed, but will not connect against a mid-air opponent.
19. HYAKKIYAKOU: Akari does her Hakushin. If it hits, she throws her opponent
    to the ground and summons a huge parade of Japanese ghosts and demons to
    stampede on her opponent (Akari gets caught in it too, but takes no damage
    of course). The move comes out fast, but its range is pretty short. Akari 
    is fully invincible during the startup flash. Move costs 2 levels to use.
 #. Have fun spotting the SNK characters taking part in the parade during the 
    Shikigami Hyakkiyakou!
 #. Both of Akari's DMs reset the screen to center after hitting.

 #. Kaede is the Awakened version available by default in Last Blade 2. None
    of his SDMs from LB2 are available in NGBC however.
 1. SHINMEI HAYATE: Kaede's standard floor-hugging projectile.
 2. SHINMEI OITE: Air projectile that travels diagonally downward. Kaede
    continues falling during the A version, while C version has him jumping
    in mid-air before launching the projectile.
 3. SHINMEI KUGA: Anti-air move, C goes higher than A. You can no longer
    repeat the motion during the C version to do an extra hit.
 4. RENJIN ZAN: A version is faster and chainable (even from light attacks).
    C version is slower and cannot be chained into, but Kaede is invincible
    during the startup pause and the move is a no-recovery knockdown. Either
    version is SCable on the 1st/2nd hit. If the C version is SCed on the 2nd
    hit, either DM will combo (since the C version juggles on the 2nd hit). 
    The 3rd (last) hit of the C version is an overhead, but does not knock 
    down if it hits on its own. Note that the Kasshin Seiryu suffers from
    heavy damage scaling when this move is SCed from the 2nd hit of the A
 5. TABAKAZE: Kaede does a forward roll. Move has no invincibility, but he
    can use this to go behind opponent (as a setup for the Arashi Uchi).
 6. ARASHI UCHI: Unblockable attack that leaves opponent juggled. You can
    now combo into this move, unlike in Last Blade.
 7. KASSHIN FUKURYU: Kaede stabs the tip of his sword to the ground, summoning
    5 bolts of lightning. Kaede is invincible from the startup flash until his
    sword touches the ground (but he loses his invincibility just before the
    bolt of lightning comes out, so it is possible to hit Kaede out of it).
 8. KASSHIN SEIRYU: Kaede's sword glows with light (looking rather like a 
    lightsaber) as he raises it and slams it down. This move is NOT an
    overhead though it looks like one. This move can be delayed for a short
    while, though it has no effect on the damage. Now costs 2 levels to use.

 #. The commands for Washizuka's Ren, Shashiki, Fukushiki and Saishu Rouga
    have changed, and he has a new followup for his Rouga.
 1. SHIKKU SATSU: Washizuka throws 1(A) or 2(C) projectiles. A version is
    faster, but the projectile does not travel full-screen.
 2. KOKU SATSU: Washizuka stabs diagonally upward with a column of energy
    surrounding his sword. A version deals slightly less damage, but is a
    little faster.
 3. ROUGA: Washizuka dashes forward with a shoulder charge. Move is SCable.
    The D version will travel all the way to opponent's location. The
    followups can now be used even if the move misses, and all of them knock
    down. The Onshiki followup juggles opponent: you can SC into the Shin 
    Rouga to catch opponent as they fall.
 4. HANSHIKI: New followup for the Rouga. Washizuka performs a stab forward,
    similar to his Koshiki, except only the D version is unblockable. Unlike
    the other followups, this move does not combo from the Rouga. The button
    used determine the pause time before Washizuka stabs forward, with A being
    the quickest. It is SCable, and is a no-recovery attack, so you can try 
    SCing this into the Saishu Rouga and delaying it.
 5. SHUN SATSU/REN: Washizuka does a quick stab forward. Repeating qcb+P has
    him performing several more stabs in various directions. The Ren followup
    can only be used if the Shun Satsu hits or blocked. The (C) Shun Satsu is 
    slower to launch, but the Ren does more hits.
 6. KOSHIKI: Washizuka steps back and draws back his sword before stabbing
    forward. This move is unblockable and knocks down, but has slow startup
    time. This is his BC unblockable attack from Last Blade. Delaying the move
    increases its damage and range, while making it launch faster and becoming
    a no-recovery attack. Move is SCable when delayed.
 7. SHIN ROUGA: Washizuka starts with a Rouga, rams opponent to the corner,
    and performs a 5-hit Shun Satsu before finishing with a 10-hit Koku Satsu.
    C version has a short pause before Washizuka charges, so you can't combo
    into it, but during which Washizuka is invincible.
 8. SAISHU ROUGA: Washizuka charges forward with a powerful stab. Delaying
    the move makes it unblockable, and increases its damage significantly.
    Move is unblockable only when Washizuka completes charging and attacks on
    his own (he no longer glows red while delaying this move). Move costs 2
    levels to use.

 #. The command for Moriya's Taitou Hogetsu has changed.
 #. Moriya's close C now knocks opponent back and is only cancelable before he
    completes the animation.
 #. Moriya's crouching B is cancelable. The (A) Tsukikage will combo from it.
 1. ITTOU: Moriya does a downward slash that is cancelable.
 2. ITTOU OBORO: Moriya slashes high/forward/low depending on button used. The
    C version hits low. All versions can be delayed, and if held until Moriya
    flashes white, the move goes further, does more damage and up to 3 hits. 
    While holding, you can press D to cancel the move. You can press a button
    to have Moriya retract his sword on the 1st hit, and this can be done
    regardless of whether the move hits or misses. Alternately, you can
    also hold down the A/B/C buttons the moment he strikes to have Moriya 
    prepare another Ittou Oboro (this can be done even if the move misses). 
    You need to hold down the button for a short while before Moriya will 
    attack in this case. You can repeat this as many times as you want, and
    switch between button versions. Also, if you delayed the Ittou Oboro 
    until Moriya flashes white, you can cancel or prepare another strike on 
    the 2nd hit instead of the 1st (though the timing is pretty strict). The 
    slash can negate projectiles, though it depends on the version used (the C 
    version negates floor level projectiles).
 3. ITTOU SHINGETSU: The A version can be followed with the C version if it
    hits. The Ittou Shingetsu Ura (C version) is slightly slower than the A
    version but goes further and does slightly more damage. Interestingly, the
    C version will cross-up when used up close, and if it connects in such a
    case, you can juggle opponent before they land. The move requires fairly
    precise motioning or you'll get the Tsukikage instead (but it's not as
    strict as the Taitou Hogetsu's command).
 4. ITTOU TSUKIKAGE: Moriya steps forward with a series of slashes. A version
    does 3 hits while C version does 4 hits but cannot be chained into from
    normals. Both versions now knock down. The 2nd input for A version is 
    cancelable into another special move, while the 3rd input is an overhead
    knockdown attack. Any input before the last is SCable for both versions.
 5. TAITOU HOGETSU: Moriya slides forward and reappears:

    (A) - Near the corner behind him. If Moriya was already near the corner, 
    he will reappear at the same spot.

    (B) - In front of opponent at sweep distance (cannot go past opponent).
    Will always put Moriya in front of opponent, so he will remain in place if
    done while cornered. Otherwise, he tends to appear at center screen.

    (C) - Behind opponent (will always switch sides). Always goes behind 
    opponent even if cornered, though the distance from opponent varies 
    depending on how far away they were from Moriya. If opponent was at/near
    the center, this tends to put Moriya at the opposite corner.

    Moriya is invincible for a moment when he disappears, but is vulnerable 
    during the start and end of the move. This move requires very precise
    motioning or you'll get the Ittou Oboro instead. You can no longer cancel
    this move into the Ittou Oboro by holding A/B/C, but while delaying the 
    Ittou Oboro, you can cancel into this move.
 6. IZAYOI GEKKA: Moriya's DM from Last Blade: he performs 16 rapid Ittou 
    Oboro, using all 3 versions (but the move doesn't hit low). The move will
    not get full hits unless used up close, and no longer knocks down even if
    all 16 slashes connected.
 7. MIDARE SETSU GEKKA: Moriya's autocombo SDM from Last Blade. Move costs 2
    levels to use, and resets the screen to center if it hits.

 #. Fuuma is spelt as 'Fuma' in NGBC.
 1. REPPU ZAN: The projectile can be crouched under.
 2. DOUBLE REPPU ZAN: Fuuma pauses, then throws 2 projectiles. The move has
    a rather slow startup time, but this version can't be crouched under. The
    move costs 1/2 stock bar to use.
 3. ENRYU HA: Standard uppercut move. Can be used in mid-air. You can cancel
    the ground version into the air version.
 4. NINPO FURIN KAZAN: Fuuma hops forward while spinning sideways, hitting
    multiple times. You can cancel this into the mid-air Enryu Ha. This move
    does not knock down an opponent on the ground.
 5. SATSU CHOUKEN: Fuuma punches out a small burst of energy. The move can be
    chained into and is a no-recovery knockdown. When performed up close, it
    becomes a blockable throw move that can be chained into. In this case, the
    move does more damage, but can be recovered from.
 6. KIRI MAI: Fuuma does a downward punch with his arm covered in energy. (B)
    version has long startup pause and is done stationary. When canceled into
    or performed inside Fuuma's throw range, the D version comes out very fast
    , and Fuuma performs this on the spot. When used standalone at a distance,
    it has long startup pause, but Fuuma charges forward across the screen 
    very quickly after that. Either way, the D version juggles a hit opponent
    (though you can only hit opponent with special moves). Fuuma seems to be
    immune to high/mid level attacks during the move's startup pause. Move is
 7. HAUKOU TAMA: Fuuma creates a large trail of fire that travels across the 
    ground. The move is slow to launch, but does multiple hits and negates
    projectiles. Fuuma can move shortly after throwing the (A) version, thus
    allowing him to combo after this move hits. The move will lose hits over
 8. KYUUKOKUKEN: Fuuma ignites both his hands, jumps up, then dives diagonally
    downward with his body covered in flames. If the dive hits or is blocked,
    there is a massive explosion upon impact. The move can hit at any point
    once Fuuma's hands are ablaze, and not just during the dive (which does
    pathetic damage on its own). In the corner, the (D) Kiri Mai will combo
    into this when used standalone. Fuuma is invincible while rising. This
    suffers from heavy damage scaling: there isn't much difference in damage
    if the move hits entirely, or only during the dive and explosion.

 1. TANAGAKORO: Hanzo does a palm strike with a burst of energy on it, similar
    to Fuuma's Satsu Chouken. Move is a Counter Wire when used standalone.
    When canceled into, it becomes cancelable and does not knock down.
 2. IZUNA KIRI: Hanzo stabs downward with his knives. This move knocks down.
 3. REKKO ZAN: Hanzo throws a shuriken. The move can't be crouched under, 
    unlike Fuuma's Reppu Zan.
 4. DOUBLE REKKO ZAN: Hanzo throws two shurikens, knocking down opponent if
    both of them hit. In the corner, you can follow-up after the move hits
    before opponent lands. The Kouryu Ha is an easy follow-up.
 5. NINPO KOHRIN KAZAN: Hanzo hops up and spins sideways while slashing out.
    Hanzo's version knocks down immediately upon hitting once. The K versions
    are done horizontally, while the P versions travel in a gentle arc, 
    starting with Hanzo jumping up, floating downwards midway before floating
    up again. The stronger the button used, the further Hanzo spins.
 6. NINJA LEG LARIAT: Hanzo jumps diagonally forward with a series of kicks,
    similar to Kyo/Shingo's Oboroguruma. Hanzo jumps fairly low and does one
    hit for the B version, while D does 3 hits and goes higher and further. 
    You can SC the D version into the Senkoujin on the 2nd hit.
 7. KOMORO NO SUBI: Hanzo's teleport moves. Where he reappears is determined
    by the button pressed:
    (A) - Reappears at the same spot.
    (B) - In air directly in front of opponent.
    (C) - About 1/2 screen distance away.
    (D) - In air about 1/2 screen distance away.
    You can use an air attack after the B and D versions. You can also perform
    this move in mid-air, or during the 2nd hit of the Ninja Leg Lariat. All
    versions are SCable, with P versions into the Hikari Kiri and K versions
    into the Senkoujin. 
 8. HIKARI KIRI: Hanzo throws a shuriken. If it hits, Hanzo throws several 
    more shurikens at opponent. This move can combo from light attacks, but
    it clashes with other normal projectiles. Note that only Ai can absorb or
    reflect this move using her Baseball Stars and 2020 Super Catch moves.
 9. BANTEN SENKOUJIN: Hanzo's Hero move from World Heroes; he dives diagonally
    downwards with a slash. If it hits, a kanji character appears on opponent
    and Hanzo performs 6 more slashes, teleporting between hits, with a kanji
    character appearing on opponent during every hit. This move can cross-up 
    at certain distance from opponent.

 1. MUD AIR RIDER: Mudman dives down with a knee attack. This is an overhead,
    and you can perform a ground combo after it hits.
 2. MUD FLIGHT: Mudman flaps his arms and glides in mid-air, delaying his 
    landing time. You can attack following this move. Keep tapping ABC to
    glide longer.
 3. MUD DANCE: Mudman dances, during which he is vulnerable, but it builds up
    his stock gauge.
 4. MUD ATTACK: Mudman creates a blue spirit creature from his mask who then
    runs forward and pops on impact with opponent. It's basically Mudman's 
    standard projectile. Move is SCable.
 5. MUD LAUNCHER: Mudman throws a spirit creature upwards in an arc, which
    pops upon landing. You can have a Mud Attack on-screen together with this.
    D version arcs higher and further.
 6. MUD CUTTER: Mudman hops and spins in place, slashing any nearby opponents.
    This move can avoid low attacks, and can also be done in the air. If used
    in mid-air, you can move around and use the Mud Air Rider after that. It
    almost looks like Mudman's body disappears during this move, as all you 
    see is his mask and loincloth.
 7. MUD GYRO: Mudman jumps up while spinning and holding out his arms, with
    green energy surrounding him. Move comes out quickly, but has almost no 
    forward range.
 8. SUPER MUDMAN ATTACK: Mudman performs a Mud Attack, except the spirit he
    summons his much larger and negates normal projectiles.
 9. SEIREI KYUU: Mudman summons a sphere of blue energy that descends slowly
    to opponent's location.
10. HEAVEN'S CROSS: Mudman creates a column of energy, with the location
    depending on the button pressed:    
    (A): Directly behind Mudman
    (B): Directly in front of Mudman
    (C): About 1/2 screen distance in front of Mudman
    (D): About 80% screen distance in front of Mudman
    If the move connects, the energy column expands, and a pair of muscular
    spirits lift opponent to the top of screen before dropping them. The 
    column is unblockable, and the B/C versions can be chained into. The move
    launches and recovers quickly, but Mudman is vulnerable throughout the
    entire animation (which means he's in big trouble if the wrong version was
    used and opponent manages to get past the column). This move costs 2 stock
    bars to use and was his Hero move from WHP.

 #. Marco's gun attacks (his P attacks) range is as far as the tiny bullet
    that he shoots (which is just past the gun barrel).
 1. SECRET BLOW: Marco crouches, and a boxing glove springs out from his 
    backpack. This move is cancelable when canceled into, and combos from 
    light attacks. When used standalone, the move knocks down with no recovery
    allowed, and is also a Counter Wire.
 2. HEAVY MACHINE GUN: Marco pulls out a machine gun and fires several rounds.
    The projectiles are invisible, hit instantly and have about half-screen
    range. The move can hit a jumping opponent if they were slightly above the
    machine gun rounds' path. The bullets cannot be reflected or negated, but
    will lose to most DM projectiles. Interestingly, this move can negate 
    Iori's Ya Sakazuki DM.
 3. IRON LIZARD: Marco pulls out a bazooka, and shoots out a missile that 
    travels across the ground after a short pause. The move hits low, and
    Marco can move shortly after launching this move, though it has slow
    startup time. The move can be reflected, though not with Ai's Baseball
    Stars (the D version 2020 Super Catch can absorb it though).
 4. BLACK GRENADE: Marco tosses a grenade in an arc (D version goes further).
    Upon reaching ground level, the move hits low. This move knocks down, and
    you can have this on-screen with an Iron Lizard or Heavy Machine Gun.
    The move can be reflected, even when at ground level, strangely enough.
 5. ROCKET PACK: Marco dives forward while strapped on a jetpack. Move knocks
    down and Marco can avoid low attacks with it. This move can be done in 
 6. MOVE SHIFT/COMBAT SHIFT: Places Marco in Combat Style mode, during which
    he is unable to move normally or block, and his attacks are different. If
    hit, Marco will return to normal stance. The Move Shift has Marco rolling
    forward first before going into Combat Style.
 7. COMBAT CODE: Marco's Combat Style modes. Press b,b to return to normal
    stance. Note that only the Metal Sliding is a low attack, though the (A)
    STK and JAE look like low attacks.
    (P): Marco slashes with a knife. Move is cancelable. A version is a short, 
    quick slash forward, while C has Marco slashing upwards. You can link the 
    moves into each other (you can even link A,C then A again). Despite
    working like a normal attack, the move does chipping damage.
    (df+K): Marco slides forward with a low kick. D version is SCable, while
    B version knocks down.
    (qcf+P): Knife slash, similar to his (A) STK, except it will combo from 
    his STK and knocks down. Marco steps forward a little before slashing. C
    version goes further, but is a little slower.
    (qcb+P): Marco stands up with a knife slash similar to his STK. C version
    can hit twice when comboed from the (A) STK. The A version always does one
    (f,d,df+P): Marco jumps up with a knife slash. Essentially an uppercut.
    Move is SCable.
    (f+K): Marco rolls forward. 
    (b+K): Marco rolls backward, during which he is invincible.
    (AC): Parry move, Marco autoguards incoming attacks with his knife. This 
    move parries any physical or projectile attack at any level, though the 
    timing is pretty strict. Move is cancelable if it autoguards an attack.
    (d,d+AC): Marco eats some food, then turns fat for a moment. If he completes
    the animation, Marco regains some health.

 8. COMMON FIXTURE: Marco summons a POW from Metal Slug. The POW will walk 
    around, and cannot be hit by any attacks, but hitting Marco will cause the
    POW to go away (just like in Metal Slug). After a while, the POW will 
    shoot a fireball, salute, then run away. Marco is free to move and attack
    while the POW is on-screen. Though the move does a LOT of damage, when 
    the POW actually attacks is random: he may attack immediately upon being
    summoned, or he may stroll around for a long while before attacking.
 9. METAL SLUG: Marco crouches and waves for Metal Slug, which charges in 
    across the screen, ramming opponent in the process. The D version appears
    from behind opponent, but costs 2 levels to use. Metal Slug cannot be 
    negated, and will negate enemy projectiles as well as hit opponent lying
    on the ground (like after they were hit by the Black Grenade).
10. METAL SLUG CANNON: You can motion qcf+K to have Metal Slug stop and fire 
    its cannon instead (timed right, Metal Slug's charge can combo into the 
    cannon). The cannon shell travels in a short arc, making it a nasty
    surprise against opponent trying to jump over Metal Slug.
11. ENERGY EMISSION: Marco transforms into a zombie, then vomits out a gout of
    blood forward. Marco uses a first-aid kit and returns to normal after that
    . Works as a decent anti-air, and negates projectiles, including DMs. Move
    costs 2 levels to use. Note that Marco is NOT invincible while in zombie
 #. During the Metal Slug Attack DMs, Metal Slug will still come out charging
    if Marco is hit while waving, so long as he actually gets to wave.
 #. You can time the Metal Slug Cannon so that Metal Slug stops and covers 
    Marco entirely, which renders him immune to most on-screen attacks (though
    I doubt it'll work against Mizuchi's Kon).

 #. Mars People lost its Slide Head and Hopping Knee command attacks from
    SVC, and its Roswell Vanish and MP12's commands have changed.
 #. The Mars Slider has a different animation now: Mars People sticks out its
    tendrils across the ground instead rushing forward with a spinning tendril
 1. MARS SHOT: A version is a slow projectile that gains speed as it travels,
    while C version travels slowly while bobbing up and down slightly.
 2. ROSWELL VANISH: Mars People disappears with an explosion then reappears
    (A): At the same spot.
    (C): About 1/2 screen behind him.
    Mars People is now only invincible when fully disappeared, not during the
    explosion itself unlike in SVC. Also, the explosion range is shorter, and
    opponent must be caught in the explosion and not just at the edge for the
    move to hit. It also comes out slower now.
 3. PLASMA ABDUCTION: Unblockable throw; Mars People grabs opponent, levitates
    them up a little, then a bolt of lightning strikes down on opponent. The
    move has short range, but can still combo from a single normal attack.
 4. AREA 801: Mars People hops forward with tendrils extended diagonally
    downward (D version goes higher and further, and hits twice). This move is
    an overhead with no recovery permitted. Unlike in SVC, both version are
    aimed diagonally downward now (the B version went mostly downward in SVC).
 5. PLASMA SPIN: Mars People leaps off-screen, then descends with a multi-hit
    tendril attack. The D version can hit while rising and descending, and if
    it connects both ways, an opponent is juggled. D version has a pause before
    Mars People leaps, but does more hits. 
 6. NOT INDEPENDENCE: Mars people summons a UFO (C version comes from behind),
    which fires 3 rings as it passes. The rings are now smaller but can still
    be dodged by standing directly in the middle (so long as your character
    can fit inside the ring), but the move is now blockable. The rings will
    now combo into the other (doing major damage in the process) and it seems
    you can juggle opponent after the rings hit. Note that the C version's
    rings won't combo into each other except at the corner, and you can only
    get 2 hits.
 7. MP12: Mars People Summons 3 waves of 4 little Mars People, with the 1st
    wave coming diagonally downward from Mars People' corner, the 2nd wave
    diagonally upward from the same corner, and the last wave in a J-shaped
    arc from the top center of the screen. Unlike SVC, all 3 waves can hit
    opponent, but it's still impossible to get full hits from this move. The
    move juggles upon hitting.
 8. BRONZE AFTER: Mars People hops forward, then fires a ring directly below
    it while in mid-air. The move can cross-up, and juggles a hit opponent.
    Mars People hops further for the D version. Note that it's possible for
    opponent to stand right in the middle of the ring to avoid it, though this
    is very rare.
 9. FLAT WOODS MARCH: Mars People spews out five eggs that hatch into tiny  
    Mars People, which then run forward (gaining more speed as they travel) 
    and explode on contact with opponent. If Mars People is hit during this 
    move, it will stop creating more eggs, but any eggs already on the ground 
    will still hatch. You regain control of Mars People after it finishes 
    laying the eggs, so you can hit opponent if they were caught in the 
    explosions. This move costs 2 levels to use, and all the little Mars 
    People's explosions hit low. The move cannot be reflected and negates 
    normal projectiles.
10. TUNGUS INCIDENT: Mars People summons a UFO to crash down on opponent. This
    move is an overhead, and is always aimed at opponent now. Moves costs all
    3 levels to use.
 #. Mars People's Not Independence and Tungus Incident DMs will continue even
    if hit.

 #. Athena is the 'Goddess' version that served as one of the bosses in SVC.
 #. Athena's crouching C hits low, and can combo into her crouching D.
 1. ICARUS NO KUTSU: Athena jumps forward, which goes twice as far as a
    normal jump. You can cancel this into the Hamadrias Buster or Pukapuka 
    Hovering, but not into her normal attacks. You can cancel into this move.
 2. HAMADRIAS BUSTER: Athena fires an arrow in arc. C version arcs higher and
    further. This move can be delayed and performed in the air. When delayed,
    the arrow is set ablaze to do more hits and stun longer. Also, when
    delayed the arrows does not disappear immediately upon hitting the ground,
    and can hit a nearby opponent, and negate normal projectiles. The ground
    version is SCable. All versions are mid-level attacks and blockable low.
 3. NEPTUNE KILLER: Athena turns into a siren and leaps forward tail first. D
    version goes higher and further, but does only one hit except when blocked
    or on a Counter Hit while B version always does 2 hits. The move comes out
    very quickly and combos from light attacks.
 4. MORNING STAR ATTACK/CRASH: Athena jumps forward in a high arc while 
    smashing down with a morning star. This move is an overhead and can 
    cross-up. C version goes further.
 5. LION'S SHIELD: Athena creates an energy barrier in front of her that can
    reflect projectiles of all types, including DMs and moves that don't seem
    to be reflectable, such as Ai's Joy Joy Block or Marco's Black Grenade.
    This move can work as a decent anti-air, as the shield covers Athena
    entirely from the front.
 6. LIFE FLOWER: Athena pulls out a watering can, waters an area of the ground
    and a flower emerges. She is unable to do anything else while this move is
    active. The button combinations used determine the effect of the flower:  
    (AC) - The flower heals Athena (does not restore beyond the red portion).
    (BD) - The flower increases Athena's stock gauge.
    (BC) - The flower explodes on contact when either character touches it.
           Athena will take damage too if she comes in contact with this.
 6. PUKAKPUKA HOVERING: Athena sits in mid-air. You can use the Hamadrias 
    Buster during this move, or its designated followups:
   (P)- has Athena diving diagonally downward with a sword stab that knocks
   (B)- has her diving down and throwing opponent away (opponent is covered in
        a gust of wind). This move is unblockable, but cannot hit an opponent
        in mid-air.
   (D)- causes her stop hovering and fall.
 7. POSEIDON'S RAGE: Athena turns into a siren, then rushes forward riding on
    a wave and smacks her opponent repeatedly with her tail. The move will
    stop at the first hit if blocked. Athena is invincible as she's moving
 8. HEAVEN'S GATE: Athena hops on a golden lion, which shoots out 1(A) or 2(C)
    fireballs (the lion itself can hit a nearby opponent). Athena is now only
    invincible as the lion shoots. The fireball(s) cannot be negated, and now
    do multiple hits. This move costs 2 levels to use.
 9. HOMURA NO TSUE: Athena creates flames in front of her. The flames stays 
    with her and damages and stuns opponent if it touches them. It works
    similar to Benimaru's Raimei Tou HSDM from KOF2002/NeoWave, but the flame
    will disappear after a few seconds. Repeating the command will have Athena
    launch the flames forward as a DM projectile. If you perform qcf,qcf+C, 
    she launches a flaming tornado in front of her instead (it requires 1 
    extra stock to use). 
10. KAZE NO TSUE: Similar to her Homura no Tsue, except she summons a mini 
    tornado instead, and using the qcf,qcf+A followup has her creating a
    fiery tornado that travels forward (again, requires 1 extra stock bar).
    The Storm Fire cannot be reflected or negated, but will lose hits against
    other DM projectiles.
11. PEGASUS FANTASY: Athena mounts Pegasus, then charges forward and rams
    opponent. This move costs all 3 levels to use, and Athena is invincible
    throughout the entire animation. The move does more hits and damage the
    closer Athena is to opponent.
 #. Both the Homura and Kaze no Tsue negate normal projectiles, but will end
    if Athena is hit.

 #. Since Cyber Woo such a large character, he's unable to crouch under high
    or mid-level attacks in the game. He also takes the same amount of damage
    as the other characters in the game despite being a robot.
 #. Cyber Woo's far standing D knocks down, while his close standing D has
    lower body autoguard when he's leaning back.
 1. AIR BREAK: Cyber Woo jumps straight up while in mid-air. You can press
    C to have him perform a diving attack (the Halo Jump). Upon landing
    from the Halo Jump, Cybe Woo will backdash a little.
 2. HAMMER PUNCH: Cyber Woo hits the ground, creating an earthquake effect
    that can hit at any range and must be blocked low or jumped over. The 
    punch itself can hit opponent and is SCable, but in this case, the
    quake effect won't occur, and the punch itself can be reversed. The (C)
    version can hit a floored opponent, but since it's so slow, you'll only
    be able to do so from a previous Hammer Punch, the Halo Jump or Rocket
 3. ROCKET BAZOOKA: Cyber Woo grabs opponent and blasts them with a bazooka,
    acting as a Critical Wire. The Flying Powerbomb makes an easy followup
    for this move. There is a bit of pause before Cyber Woo actually grabs
    opponent, but he has full-body autoguard during that time, making it
    virtually impossible to hit him out of this move.
 3. FLYING TORNADO: Cyber Woo grabs and lifts opponent to the top of the 
    screen, then tosses them back down. Does a LOT of damage upon hitting.
 4. FLYING POWERBOMB: Anti-air throw; Cyber Woo leaps forward and catches
    any mid-air opponent and slams them back to the ground. The move comes
    out VERY quickly, but will not hit an opponent on the ground. You can
    SC the move after Cyber Woo slams opponent to the ground.
 5. ROLLER DASH; Cyber Woo dashes forward, during which he has autoguard.
    You can press D to have Cyber Woo end the dash prematurely (as he has
    a bit of recovery time upon stopping).
 6. MISSILE ATTACK: Cyber Woo rushes forward a little (has short range, but
    comes out very fast). If he hits, he grabs opponent and pushes them to
    the corner, then hops back and fires a barrage of missiles at them.
 7. LASER GATTLING: Cyber Woo turns into a Gattling gun and projects a 
    targeting grid forward (location depends on button pressed, with A being
    closest to him). Cyber Woo then opens fire with a hail of Gattling gun 
    rounds. This move is unblockable but will not hit if opponent was outside 
    the targeting grid, unless they come into contact with Cyber Woo's body 
    directly. In this case, the move automatically hits regardless of the
    button used, though it will not get full hits. Only the (C) version can
    hit a mid-air opponent inside the grid. Move costs 2 levels to use.
 8. SPLIT ATTACK: Cyber Woo splits his body, with the upper half flying. 
    You can move the upper body around freely during this time, and the lower
    body will attempt to follow automatically. Button pressed determines Cyber
    Woo's actions:
    (A): will cause the upper body to extend his arms sideways while spinning.
    (B): has the lower body doing a short kick that hits low and knocks down.
    (C): has the upper body doing a downward aimed punch using both hands. In
    the corner, this can combo into itself repeatedly with good timing.
    (D): has the lower body shooting a small projectile. This can combo off his
    C attack.
    Cyber Woo has full body autoguard for the duration of the move and cannot
    be thrown, reversed or stunned from hits. He will still take block damage
    though. This move costs all 3 levels to use. Interestingly, if both parts
    are too far from each other at the end of the move, the legs will explode
    (but cannot hit), while the upper body returns to ground level with a new
    pair of legs. The move lasts for about 5 seconds on the timer, and the
    only way to stop Cyber Woo is to hit him during the startup flash.

 #. You can combo the Hearty Brandisher Type A from Kisarah's sweep. Her
    sweep can be chained into from a crouching C.
 #. Kisarah can link her Hearty Brandisher moves together in this order:
    Type D > Type C > Type B > Type A > Type F. Meaning, connecting with a
    Type D allows you to follow with all the other types, while connecting
    with a Type B only allows you to follow with the Type A > F chain.
 #. During the Hearty Brandisher Type C and D, Kisarah will be unable to
    reverse attacks if the move is delayed until she attacks automatically.
    The different charge levels are indicated by Kisarah blinking once per
    level, with the Type D charging at a faster rate.
 1. ROUND HEEL KICK: Overhead kick that knocks down. The move launches faster
    when canceled into, but you can only cancel this into the Snapping Stamp 
 2. SNAPPING STAMP KICK: Kisarah leans forward and raises a leg backwards and
    kicks using her heel in an arc above her. This move is an overhead and 
    knocks down, though its range is rather short, and it works better as an 
    anti cross-up attack.
 3. BRANDISHER A: Kisarah swings her bag in a downward arc. If qcf+A is
    motioned, she does another upward swing, knocking down opponent. The move
    is an overhead.
 4. BRANDISHER B: Kisarah swings her bag at ground level. This move hits low
    and knocks down. You can follow this with the Hearty Brandisher Type A.
 5. BRANDISHER C: Reversal move, move does no damage, but switches sides with 
    opponent while leaving them vulnerable. The move reverses high/mid-level
    normal and command attacks only. If Kisarah did not reverse opponent, she
    swings out with her bag instead. This attack brings opponent closer to her
    even if the move is blocked. If the attack hits, it's possible to followup
    with a Brandisher B-> Brandisher A chain. Delaying the move will have her
    attack directly with the bag swing very quickly, but move will no longer 
    serve as a reversal. While being delayed, you can press D to cancel the
 6. BRANDISHER D: Kisarah pauses, then hops forward and does a low kick and
    swings her bag. You can't combo into this move. Kisarah can reverse low
    low normal/command attacks as she raises her leg slightly at the start of
    this move. Delaying the move slightly will have the move juggle opponent.
    If delayed for a longer period, the move can no longer reverse attacks, 
    but her attack comes out much faster, and still juggles opponent. While
    being delayed, you can press C to cancel the move.
 7. HIP BAZOOKA: Kisarah hops forward with a kick aimed diagonally upward. You 
    can't combo into this move, but if it hits or is blocked, you can press P
    to have her vault over opponent (the Rhythmic Bound) and perform a split
    kick while in mid-air (the Rhythmic Kick). The Rythmic Kick can hit in
    front and behind Kisarah (since it is a split kick), and it's possible to
    cross-up with it after the Rythmic Bound.
 8. VAULTING OVER: Unblockable throw. Does no damage, but Kisarah switches 
    sides with opponent while leaving them vulnerable. Move is SCable, and you
    can connect the Jealousy Bomber from this.
 9. CHEERLEADER KICK: Kisarah hops up with a split kick. B version combos from 
    light attacks, while D version juggles a hit opponent. Both versions are
    SCable. The move hits in front and behind Kisarah.
10. CUTEY RAINBOW/HAPPY PRESSER: Kisarah jumps forward with her legs pointing
    up, looking rather like Andy Bogard's Kuuha Dan. If this move hits, tap
    K repeatedly to have her grab her opponent and slam them down with a 
    no-recovery attack. The Cutey Rainbow is SCable, and the D version has
    autoguard and is immune to high/mid level attacks at the start.
11. SPLASH AIR DANCE: Multi-hitting version of her Cheerleader Kick ending
    with her smacking her bag on opponent (which cannot be recovered from). 
    This move can be done in mid-air.
12. JEALOUSY BOMBER: Kisarah creates a heart shape in front of opponent, and 
    kisses her boyfriend who appears out of nowhere. This breaks the heart,
    causing it to explode. This move is unblockable and costs all 3 levels to
    use. When used outside her throw range, the heart shape becomes an
    unblockable projectile that knocks down and cannot be reflected/negated, 
    but it does no damage.

 #. Kage Shishioh is a player-only character, and you will never fight a CPU
    controlled version of him.
 #. If Shishioh is unlocked, you can select him by pushing left at K' or right
    at Shermie (or down at Mizuchi).
 #. Shishioh lost his God Bless (d,u+C) sword throw and Minimum Upper punch.
 #. Shishioh can link a single close standing A into his close standing C.
 #. Shishioh can cancel his sweep into the (A) Earth Chopper only, which can
    OTG opponent if they did not recovery roll.
 1. UPPER: Shishioh does an uppercut similar to his absent Minimum Upper,
    except without the energy glow on his fist. The move juggles opponent,
    and can follow with another special move, such as the Earth Chopper. On
    its own, it is cancelable into the Chopping Right only.   
 2. CHOPPING RIGHT: Overhead punch. The move becomes cancelable when canceled
    into. You can only cancel this into the Upper when used standalone.
 3. SILENT STORM: Shishioh swings out a gust of wind from his sword similar
    to Krizalid's (C) Typhoon Rage from KOF99 (he no longer throws his sword).
    The move negates normal/DM projectiles. A version does not knock down 
    except on a Counter Hit or against a jumping/juggled opponent, and covers
    Shishioh's ground and mid-level. C version knocks down and covers his high
    and mid-level (this version travels diagonally upward). You can't followup
    after the C version hits although it looks like a juggle.
 4. EARTH CHOPPER: Shishioh swings his sword in a downward arc, knocking down
    opponent with no recovery allowed. C version has a bit of startup pause, 
    but goes further and does more damage. The move negates normal projectiles
    and has pretty long range. I'm not sure, but it seems the C version is an
    overhead (I've never seen the CPU block low against it). You can see the 
    image of a lion's head at the sword arc. 
 5. BEAST BLOW: Shishioh charges forward with a shoulder tackle and if it
    hits, he follows up with a punch. This move can snag jumping/juggled
    opponents. Unlike Shin Shishioh's, the move can be blocked standing, and
    has no invincibility. Move recovers very quickly, and is a no-recovery
 6. NIGHTMARE: Shishioh's body turns into a shadowy silhouette, and if struck
    with a physical attack of any level (including specials/DMs), he performs
    an autocombo on opponent (his Kizuna Encounter Beast Blow). If triggered,
    move is SCable on any hit, though the (C) King Straight may not combo on
    certain hits. Once triggered, the autocombo cannot be escaped from and 
    will always hit. Damage scaling makes the King Straight's damage very 
    weak, so it's recommended you SC by the 3rd hit. Kage Shishioh is not
    immune to projectiles and throws during this move, unlike Shin Shishioh.
 7. KING STRAIGHT (A): Shishioh punches forward very quickly with his arm 
    shrouded in energy. The move's range does not extend beyond Shishioh's 
    glowing fist. Move has no invincibility. Opponent must block for the
    entire duration of the move or take full damage. Only the energy 
    surrounding Shishioh's arm can negate projectiles: his arm itself is
    vulnerable to projectiles, and getting hit will abort the move.
 8. KING STRAIGHT (C): Shishioh punches forward with his arm, and a massive
    spiral of energy shoots across the screen very quickly. Shishioh has no 
    invincibility, but the move can negate normal/DM projectiles and cannot
    be negated once it launches, even if Shishioh was hit. Unlike in Kizuna
    Encounter, Shishioh performs this standing still. This version starts 
    slower, but does 3 hits and more damage.
 #. Thanks to HexElf for this note: for some reason, the Nightmare won't work
    against any of these normally reversible moves in Yuki's movelist; NeoGeo
    Ranbu DM, crouching D, close B and crouching B. In contrast, NEO-DIO can
    reverse all of these.



 - Once the timer runs out, you will be whisked off to a boss match. See the
   chart below for the requirements to face each boss.
 - Both characters' health will be fully restored before a boss fight, but
   you start the battle with no stock.
 - All bosses heal automatically (and at a ridiculously fast rate). Multi-hit
   moves do very little damage against bosses because of their healing rate
   (they heal during every hit, so the end damage is almost negligible). 
 - It is possible to KO the boss with a high damage single-hit move when they
   have low health, since the move depletes their available health before
   they can heal. For example, say Goodman has 15% health left, and you
   connected Haohmaru's (D) Zankousen on him, Goodman should KO instantly as
   the Zankousen does 30% damage, which is more than his total health. On
   the other hand, say you used Iori's Ya Otome, Goodman heals during each 
   hit, so only the last hit does noticable damage. In this case, he should
   still have about 10% health left, when the move would've KOed a normal
 - The usable versions of Mizuchi and NEO-DIO do less damage than the CPU
   versions, be it with normal or special moves.

 |Goodman       |  8+  | 6+ that hit|  None |   None    | avg health >50% |

 |NEO-DIO       |  6+  | 4+ that hit|   2   |   None    |      none       |

 GOODMAN                                              [NeoGeo Battle Coliseum]

 #. Goodman is playable only in the console versions. He cannot jump or 
    crouch, and you always use him on his own: you cannot tag out with him,
    and he has no D-Assault or Hyper Charge mode.
 #. The selectable Goodman can't heal as well, since he has no partner to tag
    out with.
 #. To select Goodman after he's unlocked, go to the space above the timer, 
    which is in between Ai and Yuki's portraits.
 #. Goodman can cancel from one Saru Ou move to another.
 #. Goodman's Saru Ou moves do ridiculous amounts of block damage.
 #. Below is a description of Goodman's special moves:

 SPECIAL MOVES       MOVE NAME                                   PROPERTIES   
 1. qcf+any          Saru Ou - Haubotsusen Kougeki               [M],P,KD,#

 5. Press ABC        Power Up (3)                                [-],#

 1. Saru Ou - Haubotsusen Kougeki [Monkey King - Parabola Strike]
  - Goodman holds his flame whip to his chest, and the flame spirit next to
    him arcs forward very quickly, knocking down opponent. If the command is
    repeated as the spirit lands, it will arc backwards toward Goodman, 
    working as a nasty surprise. Move cannot be negated, but can be crouched 
    under at the right distance (it's easier with the longer arcing versions).
    The button used determines the arc distance, with A being in front of 
    Goodman, B at full screen range, C at about 1/3 screen distance and D at
    opponent's location.

 2. Saru Ou - Rakka Kougeki [Monkey King - Falling Strike]
  - Goodman cracks his flame whip (which can hit, and is a low attack) and 
    sends the flame spirit away, then descending on location depending on
    button used (with A being closest to him and D furthest). The flames
    knock down and is an overhead attack that cannot be negated. When the 
    flames are at ground level, Goodman may cancel this into the other Saru
    Ou moves as a surprise. If Goodman is hit before he can detach the flame
    spirit, the move won't launch, though if it was already away, hitting
    Goodman won't stop the flames from descending. The flames combo with the
    whip lash.

 3. Saru Ou - Higashira Kougeki [Monkey King - Blazing Column Strike]
  - Goodman lifts his whip (which can also hit, and is a low attack), and the
    flame spirit explodes into multiple columns, similar to Terry's Triple 
    Geyser. The explosions knock down and cannot be negated. Goodman can 
    cancel this into another Saru Ou move in between explosions.
 4. Reflector 
  - Goodman creates an energy barrier in front of him that counters any 
    physical attack at any level. The move can also hit a nearby opponent 
    and is unblockable. The initial animation frames also allow this move to
    reflect projectiles. Upon hitting, the move sends opponent to the far end
    of the screen. Since the move can hit on its own, it can hit an opponent
    performing a D-Assault or throw move. Goodman is completely invincible
    while the barrier is out (throws cannot hit him). As the barrier is
    vanishing, the move can no longer hit or reverse attacks, but Goodman
    has full body autoguard, and can only be thrown.

 5. Power Up (DM)
  - Goodman turns purple, during which his Saru Ou moves do increased damage.
    It lasts for about 20 seconds or so, and costs all 3 levels to use.
 #. The flaming spirit next to Goodman is actually shaped like an ape, which
    explains his move names.

 #. If Mizuchi is unlocked, you can select him by pushing left at Kyo or
    right at Iori (or up at Shishioh/King Lion).
 #. The Katakenawa columns' colours are determined by his colour scheme.
 #. Some of Mizuchi's normal attacks (such as his far B) have an energy effect
    in front of him. The energy can hit opponent, but also counts as part of
    Mizuchi's body, so an attack that hits that energy effect will damage him.
 #. Mizuchi's close standing D is cancelable on either hit, but if canceled
    too late during the 1st hit, your attack won't combo. 
 1. SEIYAKU: Mizuchi cancels his D animation into a knockdown version of his
    far D. You may cancel both his close and far D into this, but only on the
    first hit. Move is SCable, but only into the Kon. This costs half a stock
    bar to use.
 2. KAIJO: Mizuchi throws a multi-hit sun-shaped disc across the screen. The
    disc clashes with normal mid-level projectiles, and goes past low 
    level projectiles without negating them. The disc can be crouched under
    by most characters. The move will automatically hit if Mizuchi's finger
    touches opponent. The CPU Mizuchi is completely invincible while throwing
    out the disc, and can defeat other moves with invincibility, like Shiki's
    Tenma Hajun. The CPU can also reflect projectiles as he's pointing out,
    before the disc appears. The move juggles upon hitting, though the usable
    Mizuchi recovers slower, giving you less followup options than the CPU.
    The shockwave that appears when the disc clashes with a projectile will
    negate other projectiles, including some DMs.
 3. REI: Mizuchi sticks out his chest and creates a shield in front of him,
    knocking down a nearby opponent. He is invincible while creating the 
    shield (which can also negate projectiles). It's pretty slow to launch
    however. The B version can also be used to counter projectiles: if the
    shield meets a projectile, Mizuchi will counter with a projectile of his
 4. KEN IMI: Mizuchi points a finger (A-forward/C-diagonally upward). If it
    touches opponent or meets a physical attack, a white disc appears on his
    fingertips and shatters, juggling a hit opponent. The CPU Mizuchi is 
    completely invincible while extending his arm, and has an alternate
    version where he launches a Kaijo upon meeting a physical attack or
    projectile instead.
 5. KATAKENAWA: Mizuchi creates a column of energy (location depends on the
    button used, with A being closest to him). The column cannot be negated,
    and will juggle a hit opponent. The CPU can have several columns on-screen
    to juggle multiple times. You can tell where the column will appear from
    the glowing spot on the floor. If the A version hits in the open, you may
    link the B > C > D versions afterward to juggle opponent. You may also
    juggle this way if either Ken Imi connects.
 6. ONTAI: This is an aerial version of the Rei, with Mizuchi travelling
    forward slightly with the shield on his chest before falling. It cannot
    hit most opponents on the ground, but Mizuchi seems to be invincible 
    during part of the move. Launches faster than the Rei and is also a 
    Counter Wire, but you can't followup due to its poor recovery.
 7. OOKAMI: Mizuchi vanishes, then reappears. If opponent was near him, he
    stabs his hand into opponent, pulls out a blue ball of energy from their
    chest and crushes it. Mizuchi is invincible during the startup and when
    disappearing, but is vulnerable when reappearing to attack. This does not
    suck in opponent like in Orochi's version, and does far less damaage. The
    CPU's version executes faster, and can juggle with the Kon for major
    damage. Note that the screen will not change colour and the DM flash will
    not appear if the move misses, though your stock bar will still drain.
 8. KON: Mizuchi raises his arms, and flashes occur at opponent's location.
    If the move hits, a sun symbol covers opponent as they are lifted to the
    top of the screen. This move can hit a floored opponent to do one hit, or
    as they are juggled/bouncing on the floor to do full hits. This costs 2 
    levels to use, does less damage than Orochi's and is a little slower to
    start (you have time to stop and block if you were dashing during the
    startup). The CPU Mizuchi is vulnerable during the startup, but is
    completely invincible once the attack begins. The playable Mizuchi is
    vulnerable for the duration of the move. The usable Mizuchi's version also
    starts up slower (but can still combo off his juggles and OTG opponent).
 #. The screen turns black during both of Mizuchi's DMs, though it returns
    to normal during the Ookami as he reappears, and turns black again if the
    move hits.

 #. If NEO-DIO is unlocked, you can select him by pushing left at Athena or
    right at Mars People (or up at Mizuchi/down at Shishioh).
 #, The CPU NEO-DIO has two exclusive moves: Nikuhen and Haimaru Haigaku. 
 #. The Nikuhen has NEO-DIO shooting out 3 feather-like projectiles covering
    his upper torso. The projectiles negate normal projectiles (even Asura's
    C version Shedomusa) but will lose out to DM projectiles, even if they
    are negateable like the Haoh Sho Koh Ken.
 #. The Haimaru Haigaku has NEO-DIO creating a mirror image who appears out of 
    the ground to grab your character's legs, leaving him/her vulnerable. The
    move is unblockable, but has fairly short range (about sweep distance).
    You can tell when he's launching this, as DIO will stand straight for a
    moment before the mirror image appears.
 #. NEO-DIO can triangle jump.
 1. ROKOTSUNA ABARABANE: DIO sticks out his chest and spikes protrude from it.
 2. SLIDING: NEO-DIO slides across the ground; move knocks down. You cannot
    cancel into this from normal attacks. B does one hit, D does 2 and goes
    further, while BD does 3 hits. All versions hit low.
 3. SONIC SABER: NEO-DIO rushes forward with an elbow attack. The move comes
    out very fast, but does not knock down. A does one hit, while C does 3.
 4. GRAND SABER: Similar to the Sonic Saber, except DIO punches upwards 
    instead, knocking down upon hitting.
 5. BURNING CLAW: DIO grabs his opponent, then ignites them and tosses them
 6. FREEZING CLAW: Similar to the Burning Claw, except DIO freezes opponent
    instead, leaving them vulnerable to further attacks. This move comes out
    noticably slower than the Burning Claw.
 7. ROLLING SMASH: NEO-DIO curls up into a ball and hops diagonally upward.
 8. METEOR SMASH: Similar to the Rolling Smash, except NEO-DIO dives downward
    from mid-air.
 9. THUNDER BLOW: NEO-DIO extends the spikes on his head forward and charges
    it with electricity. This move doesn't knock down.
10. MUTEKI NO TEPPEKI: Reversal move, NEO-DIO causes opponent to pause during
    their attack while he teleports behind them, leaving them open to counter
    attacks. The move counters physical attacks at any level, including 
    special moves and DMs. The move comes out pretty slowly however, and it's
    possible for opponent to escape or block before a counterattack hits.
    The CPU tends to follow with a Thunder Blow; if you were performing a move
    that causes your character to rush forward quickly (like a D-Assault),
    your character will be unstuck and continue on with the attack before the
    Thunder Blow can hit. The playable DIO can only reverse attacks as he
    stretches his arms backwards, and not as the move launches/ends unlike 
    the CPU. The CPU's version launches faster and leaves opponent immobilized
    longer. Move is SCable.
11. ULTIMATE CANNON: NEO-DIO pauses a moment, then launches out a ball of
    lightning that cannot be negated. The CPU's version travels faster and 
    does more damage.
12. ULTIMATE BEAST: Autocombo move. There is a short pause during startup,
    during which NEO-DIO is invincible. The CPU's version is unblockable and
    does significantly more damage. Move requires 2 levels to use. Since DIO
    is so tall, it's quite difficult to jump over him to avoid to this move,
    making it a rather effective anti-air.
13. ULTIMATE ILLUSION: DIO rushes forward about 1/2 screen distance. If DIO
    touches opponent during the dash, he stops and summons Neo Geegus from WH2
    and both of them perform a short autocombo on opponent (the move looks 
    rather like a parody of Morrigan's Darkness Illusion). This move is
    unblockable and costs all 3 levels to use, but its damage is pretty poor,
    and cannot hit a jumping opponent. DIO has full body autoguard during the
    startup and initial part of the dash. This move will reset the screen to
    center upon hitting.
 #. The playable NEO-DIO's DMs do significantly less damage than the CPU's.
    The Ultimate Cannon does especially poor damage for a DM.

 #. Shin Shishioh is a CPU-only character and is not usable. He's still listed
    as 'Shishioh' when you fight him ('King Lion' in English versions).
 #. For full descriptions of his moves, please refer to Shishioh's movelist.
 #. Like in Kizuna Encounter, Shin Shishioh has two exclusive moves: the
    Hunter Killer and King Upper.
 1. SILENT STORM: Similar to Kage Shishioh's version, except it does slightly
    more damage.
 2. EARTH CHOPPER: Shin Shishioh's (C) version is unblockable. Either version
    can hit opponent lying on the floor. 
 3. BEAST BLOW: Shin Shishioh's version hits low. He is immune to high and 
    mid-level attacks during the initial part of the dash. The CPU will use 
    this to go past mid-level projectiles. After this hits, the CPU tends to
    OTG with the (A) Earth Chopper (ouch!).
 4. NIGHTMARE: Similar to Kage Shishioh's version, except it does far more 
    damage. The CPU will SC this into a King Straight if he has stock. Shin
    Shishioh is also fully invincible during this move, so he cannot be hit
    by throws or projectiles (a D-Assault will simply stop in front of him). 
    Shin Shishioh is only vulnerable as he's returning to his normal colour.
 5. HUNTER KILLER: Shin Shishioh jumps forward with two kicks similar to Mr.
    Karate's (hcb+D) Hien Shippu Kyaku, except this move is an overhead, does 
    more damage and goes further. Move can avoid low attacks and juggles upon
    hitting. Shin Shishioh will turn around to perform the 2nd kick if 
    opponent somehow managed to get behind him during the 1st hit.
 6. KING STRAIGHT: Shin Shishioh's version is identical to Kage Shishioh's 
    version and is not the autocombo DM from Kizuna Encounter. The CPU will
    use the (C) version to punish projectiles. Shin Shishioh's versions do 
    significantly more damage than Kage Shishioh's.
 7. KING UPPER: Shin Shishioh no longer performs the triple Minimum Upper from
    Kizuna Encounter. Instead, has punches out a spiral of energy upwards,
    similar to his (C) King Straight. This move comes out very quickly and 
    does ridiculously high damage for a level 1 DM (almost 50%). The move 
    cannot be negated, and if it traded hits with an airborne opponent,
    opponent will be juggled, and he can followup with another King Upper.



 The single-player rules for NGBC are as follows:
 - You start with 300 seconds on the timer. The timer will not refill unless
   you used the Increase Time bonus or if you continued.
 - In single-player, only one character needs to be KOed to end the match. So
   switch out if your character's health is low.
 - Your character will heal to the limit of their red bar between battles.
   Only Nakoruru, Shiki, Jin Chonshu and Marco can restore their health above
   the red bar through the use of their healing moves.
 - You carry over whatever stock you have between battles, except during boss 
   fights or if you were challenged. However, after every 3 battles, your
   "D-Assault OK" message will be reset and you need to wait for it to be
   displayed again.
 - After every 3 battles, a bonus screen will appear with several options:
   1. No Service
   2. Life Recovery (heals about 25% for each character)
   3. Increase Power Gauges (gives you full stock bars on your next match)
   4. Increase Time (adds 25 seconds to the timer)
   If you used a bonus, it will be grayed out and unavailable to you during
   the next bonus screen (if you've KOed another 3 opponents before timeout).
   Keep in mind that you have to take bonuses if you want to fight NEO-DIO or
   Shin Shishioh.
 - Only actual (green), and not healable (red) health is taken into account 
   during timeouts (and determining if you get to fight Goodman or not). 
 - Once you run out of time, you will face the boss depending on what criteria
   you met. It doesn't matter if your combined health was lower than the CPU's
   during timeout; you still get to fight the boss (though if your combined
   health was less than one full bar, you won't be able to fight Goodman even
   if you've met the other criteria).

 - You start a boss fight with 120 seconds on the timer.
 - In the case of a timeout during a boss fight, your combined health is
   measured with the boss'. So long as your combined health bar is longer than
   the boss', you will win the match regardless of how little health your 
   active character had.
 - Once you face the boss, you can continue as many times as you want if you
   lose. The continue tally is only taken into account when fighting the CPU
 - You MUST reach Goodman and defeat him to view the end credits and have the
   chance to enter your initials into the high score. There are no individual
   endings, but you do get a character-specific text crawl after Goodman's
   exit scene. Amazingly, the English is pretty good this time, considering
   how long the text scene is, and SNKP's history of funny 'Engrish'. :)

 - In a vs 2P battle, the timer starts counting down from 160 seconds.
 - In a 2P battle, both characters need to be KOed to end the match.
 - In the event of a timeout, total health of both characters are tallied,
   and the match is awarded to whoever that has the most combined health.
 - If a challenger appears while one player is fighting the CPU, the winner
   will resume the CPU battle with the amount of time left at the beginning
   of the round before being challenged together with the number of CPU
 - If one character is already knocked out, using a Guard Cancel Tag Attack
   (E while blocking) will cause that character to perform only the knockdown
   attack. Obviously, you also lose access to D-Assaults.

 - The Roulette will randomize your selected character after every 3 battles
   when fighting the CPU, and after every battle against a human opponent.
   Note that even if they were unlocked, you will never get Mizuchi, NEO-DIO
   and Kage Shisioh through the Roulette.
 - Your character's colour is determined by the attack button used.
 - Beating Goodman using certain team combinations will also display a special
   portrait of your team before the end credits roll. The known combinations 

   Mr. Karate/Robert
   Mr. Big/Shermie
   Marco/Mars People
   Cyber Woo/Mudman
   Tung Fu Rue/Lee Pai Long
   Jin Chonshu/Jin Chonrei


 - Using certain character combinations give you access to special versions of
   the Double Assault.
 - You will also need use a special move (or even have it hit) before you have
   access to the Special Double Assault. There is also a time constraint: you 
   have about 10 seconds or so after using/hitting with the required move to 
   perform the move before you lose the opportunity to do so.
 - Once performed, you will need to meet the required conditions again to use
   the Special D-Assault again, regardless of whether it hit or not.
 - Special D-Assaults do slightly more damage than a regular D-Assault and are
   indicated by a gold startup flash instead of the regular blue version, as
   well as a different startup attack (which still has almost no priority).

 Here are the known combinations:

 #. I haven't tried all the Special Double Assaults noted here, so I apologize
    for any errors that may be present.
 #. 'Connect' means you need to get that move to hit. 'Perform' only requires
    you to perform the move without being interrupted.


 YUKI: Perform the A,B, and Start Memory Card Slash(d,d+A/B/Start) moves, then 
 motion qcf,hcb+AE before any of the Memory Card Slashes wear off.
 * Yuki starts with a ground-launched Riding Hero. Upon hitting, Yuki and Ai
   form Atomic Guy, while opponent is left juggled.
 * You can move around and attack with Atomic Guy, but he splits back to Yuki
   and Ai automatically after around 5 seconds, or if he is hit.
 * All of Atomic Guy's moves are unblockable. The Megaton Spark works similar
   to Ai's Lightning Ball and Atomic Guy is invincible during the move. Using
   it returns Yuki to normal.

 Press P      Atomic Punch
 Press K      Atomic Sliding
 any in air   Atomic Straight
 Press ABC    Megaton Spark
 b,b          Cancel (Returns Yuki to normal)
 * After transforming in the corner, you can connect an Atomic Sliding into an
   Atomic Punch and finish off with the Megaton Spark for an easy combo.

 AI: Perform a Lightning Ball (ABC while on Joy Joy Balloon), then motion 
 qcb,qcb+CE after getting off the balloon.
 * Ai starts by pulling out a gun similar to Marco's Heavy Machine gun, except
   this needs to hit up close.


 KYO: Connect with new Dokugami chain (qcf+C,qcf+C,qcf+A,qcf+K,hcb+C), then
 motion qcb,hcf+AE.
 * Kyo starts with a dashing (D) Hikigane, which can combo from his Dokugami
   chain in the corner.

 IORI: Connect with his Ya Sakazuki DM (qcb,hcf+P), then motion qcf,qcf+CE. 
 * Iori starts with his LDM from KOF2003 (except this isn't an overhead). This
   is probably the easiest Special D-Assault to connect with, since opponent 
   is unable to move.


 KAEDE: Super Cancel his Shinmei Renjin Zan (qcb+P) into either DM (which does
 not have to hit), then motion d,d+AE anytime after.
 * Kaede starts with a close C slash.

 MORIYA: Perform his Taitou Hogetsu (b,d,db+A/B/C), then motion f,hcf+CE. 
 * Moriya starts with his Ittou (df+A) slash.
 * Good luck getting the Taitou Hogetsu to launch in the first place, as it
   requires very strict motioning.


 TERRY: Perform a Charge Run (hcf+K) without the Charge Kick, then motion
 b,f,f+AE anytime after. Terry must complete the run animation.
 * Terry starts with a Rising Upper, which has poor range, but comes out
   pretty fast.

 ROCK: Perform a Rage Run: Type Shift (qcb+D) and successfully switch sides,
 then motion b,d,db+CE anytime after.
 * Rock starts with the (A) Rising Tackle, and all 3 hits must connect on
   opponent on the ground for the rest of the move to launch. Despite the
   animation, the move has no priority whatsoever.

 HAOHMARU: Activate the Ikari Bakuha (ABC), then motion df,df+AE before its
 effects wear off.
 * Haohmaru starts with his close C slash.

 GENJURO: Activate the Ikari Bakuha (ABC), then motion f,b,f+CE before its
 effects wear off.
 * Genjuro starts with a far B slash.


 MR. KARATE: Connect a Tenchi Haoh Ken (qcf,qcf+P), then motion qcf,b,f+AE
 anytime after.
 * Mr. Karate starts by stepping forward with a punch (the 1st hit of his
   Buryoko Ranbu minus the autoguard).

 ROBERT: Connect a Hien Senpuu Kyaku Finisher (qcb+K 4 times, qcf+K), then 
 motion qcb,f,b+CE anytime after.
 * Robert starts with his Ura Ken backfist.


 HANZO: Connect with his C/D Ninpo Kohrin Kazan (qcb+any), then motion 
 f,d,df+AE anytime after.
 * Hanzo starts with a close range knife slash.

 FUUMA: Connect with his Satsu Chouken throw (hcb+C when near), then motion 
 qcf,qcf+CE anytime after.
 * Fuuma starts with a close range knife slash.

 Special thanks to DJ Tigresa for compiling them, and to the people at the 
 GameFAQs and Orochinagi forums for posting them up in the first place.


 Here is an advanced move property glossary:

 Certain characters have basic throws that can be performed in the air. These
 throws cannot be escaped from, but must be done very close to opponent. Air
 throws can work if an opponent is on the same level or slightly higher than
 your character, but not on opponents who are on a lower level. It's also
 possible to air throw an opponent performing a move that takes them off
 the ground, such as during Yuki's SENGOKU Denshou.

 Moves with autoguard can block incoming attacks during certain frames of 
 their animation. Autoguard can block normally unblockable attacks, so long
 as they are physical or projectile attacks and not throws (an example would
 be Kisarah's missed Jealousy Bomber). Certain moves have autoguard in a 
 specific area only, such as Ryo's Joudan/Gedan Uke moves (his arm) while some
 moves have full body autoguard (Ryo's Buryoko Ranbu). You will still take 
 blocking damage from autoguarding special moves, but being able to hit 
 opponent while they're vulnerable makes it worthwhile. Autoguarding does not
 lower your Guard Meter, but note that while you can autoguard moves that do
 multiple hits, the autoguard frames may end before it's finished blocking the
 entire attack, so you may end up taking the remaining hits.

 Command attacks can be canceled into from normal attacks, and may be 
 cancelable into special moves when done so. If used on its own, command moves
 may have additional properties such as knockdown or being an overhead. Low 
 hitting command attacks may retain their property, but overheads are always 
 blockable low if canceled into, regardless of whether the overhead will combo
 or not. Not all commands attacks will combo from normal attacks, and most 
 command attacks only combo from hard attacks, while some can only combo from
 light attacks. Also, some command attacks like Rock's Upper Evade cannot be
 canceled into from normal attacks, and must be launched standalone.

 A Counter Hit occurs if both characters are attacking at the same time, and 
 one character manages to hit the other, or both characters get hit at the 
 same time. Counter hits generally do more damage than usual, and if opponent
 was hit in mid-air, it may be possible to hit them again before they land. 
 Throws of any kind do not do Counter damage. Multi-hit moves only do Counter 
 Damage on the connecting hit. Counter Hits do not apply to normal attacks; 
 you can only Counter Hit an opponent performing command, special or DM moves. 

 Moves with Critical Wire property will cause an opponent to rebound off the 
 wall and leave them open to juggles. Counter Wires have the same property
 on a Counter Hit.

 NGBC uses a damage scaling system. This means all moves will do less damage
 in combos if they add to the hit counter (which also means throws do not
 suffer from damage scaling). The longer your combo is, the more significant
 damage scaling becomes. While this isn't a huge factor with special moves,
 DMs may do far less damage in a long combo followed by a Super Cancel.

 The Double Assault, or D-Assault is a fast autocombo attack peformed with
 qcf+E. You may only use a D-Assault when the "D-Assault OK" message is
 flashing above your stock gauges. The move comes out very quickly and can
 combo off light attacks, but does little damage. However, it takes off a
 noticable chunk of your opponent's red health, meaning they won't be able to 
 heal as much upon tagging out. Double Assaults have no priority to speak of,
 and just about any attack can beat it, though it cannot be reversed. It also
 has poor recovery time. After a D-Assault connects, your partner's health bar
 will start flashing red, giving them increased attack and Guard meter damage,
 and their basic attacks will do chipping damage. D-Assaults can hit a jumping
 or juggled opponent, but it won't connect if you hit an opponent in mid-air
 with a ground attack first (even on a Counter Hit). Against the CPU, you must
 connect the D-Assault a certain number of times in order to fight Goodman or
 NEO-DIO. To fight Shin Shishioh, you shouldn't have used any D-Assaults at 
 all (including Special D-Assaults). Double Assaults are treated as special
 moves, so you cannot Super Cancel into them.

 FRONTSTEP (all special versions)
 The Tactical Step, Guard Cancel Frontstep and Just Defence Frontstep will
 cause your character to dodge, then dash forward. During a frontstep, your
 character is fully invincible (even throws will miss) while flashing white, 
 and for about half the dash animation, so they are vulnerable while stopping.
 Unlike KOF's recovery roll, you may cancel your frontstep into an attack, but
 doing so will end your invincibility. The Just Defence Frontstep looks and 
 works exactly the same as the Guard Cancel Frontstep, and there are no visual
 indicators to show you did this version, except you only drain 1/4 bar of 
 stock instead of the usual 1/2 bar. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be
 any use for Just Defence in NGBC.

 Guard Crush happens when a character blocks too much until their Guard Meter 
 is depleted; the character will be stunned for a moment when they block. Upon
 being Guard Crushed, that character's Guard Meter will be refilled.

 Moves that have invincibility mean physical and projectile attacks will miss
 against them. Throws and reversals may still be able to work though. Certain
 moves have full invincibility, while others may be only immune to low or high
 attacks. For example, Ryo's Ryuko Ranbu is only immune to high and mid-level 
 attacks during the dash, while CPU Mizuchi is completely invincible while 
 throwing out his Kaijo projectile.

 Projectile moves are not considered physical attacks, and cannot be countered
 by most reversal moves, although certain moves can reflect or absorb them.
 Normal projectiles generally clash with each other (there are some normal
 projectiles that cannot be negated), while DM projectiles will negate normal
 projectiles. Certain DM projectiles will clash with other DM projectiles, 
 while others are not negateable and will defeat them. In NGBC, certain normal
 mid-level projectiles can be crouched under by most normal-sized characters, 
 such as Chonshu's Tengan Ken or Robert's (P) Ryu-Geki Ken. Note that all
 floor-level projectiles can hit a move with high-mid/level invincibility
 or autoguard, even if the projectile doesn't hit low. So, Iori's Yami Barai
 can hit Ryo out of his Ryuko Ranbu dash.

 Some negateable DM projectiles: Ryo/Robert's Haoh Sho Koh Ken, Genjuro's 

 Some non-negateable DM projectiles: Marco's Metal Slug Attack DMs, Tung's
 Chou Shou Nami, NEO-DIO's ultimate Cannon, Shin/Kage Shishioh's (C) King 

 Reversals are passive moves that do not attack on its own (Goodman's 
 Reflector is an exception, and can hit on its own). However, if a reversal
 move is struck by a physical attack within certain animation frames, the 
 character will 'catch' the incoming attack and launch a counter-attack of 
 their own. Not all reversals have the same property: Rock's Counter Crack:
 Joudan can counter special moves, but the Gedan version cannot. Goodman and
 Asura can also reflect projectiles with their reversal moves. Note that most
 reversals only counter moves that hit at a certain level, though Shishioh and
 NEO-DIO's reversals can counter physical attacks at any level. All Last Blade
 characters have Repel moves that serve as reversals. Also note that reversal
 moves can counter physical attacks that have invincibility or full-body 
 autoguard, such as Ryo's Ryuko/Buryoko Ranbu moves.

 Many characters in NGBC can cancel special moves into DMs. This does not
 require any extra stock, unlike in KOF. Do note that being able to SC a 
 special move doesn't mean the DM will combo or get full hits. On the other
 hand, there are some DMs that will only combo reliably when used in SCs,
 like Haohmaru's Tenha Seiou Zan. Damage scaling has a huge effect on a DM's
 damage in Super Cancels, so don't assume more hits guarantee more damage. 
 For example, Kaede's Kasshin Seiryu does far LESS damage when SCed from the 
 2nd hit of his Shinmei Renjin Zan as compared to SCing from the 1st hit.
 Note that some projectile moves such as Robert's Ryu-Geki Ken are SCable. 
 Unlike standard SCs, projectile moves are SCable even if they miss.

 You can press E anytime your character is on the ground to switch characters.
 There is a short pause before your character jumps out, and another pause 
 when the incoming character lands, during which they are vulnerable to
 attacks. You will need to tag to take advantage of the Hyper Charge Mode,
 gained from successfully connecting a Double Assault. A character tagged out
 will heal automatically at a moderate rate after a few seconds. You can tag
 as often as needed, though doing so will disrupt your character's healing and
 prevent you from using D-Assaults or gaining stock automatically.

 Throws cannot be reversed, and will not do Counter damage. All special throws
 cannot be escaped from in NGBC. Most throws can only hit a grounded opponent,
 and some anti-air throws can only hit a mid-air opponent (an exception is the
 Shermie Whip, which can hit both ground and air opponents). Most, but not all
 special throws cannot be recovered from if they knock down. The CPU is pretty
 good at breaking normal throws in NGBC.

 Certain characters like Mai and NEO-DIO can triangle jump by jumping towards
 either edge of the screen, then jumping off in the opposite direction. This
 means, if you jumped backwards, push uf at the screen edge, and if you jumped
 forward, push ub instead. You character will stop at the screen's edge, then
 hop off in the opposite direction. You can only use a triangle jump if you 
 didn't make an attack while jumping, but you can attack following a triangle
 jump. You do not have to be at the corner to use a triangle jump: this can be
 done as long as your character can reach the screen's edge.
