  Hello there, and thank you for deciding to read my first FAQ ever. I plan on
making this thing very through, with everything that you should need to know
to becoming an Android #16 expert. Inside this FAQ I will list the basics 
to playing Android #16, Android #16's moves, how to beat the World Tournament 
with him, and even a Capsule Encyclopedia listing all of #16's capsules.
  The basics will explain #16's playing style and capsule setups for him.
Android #16's moves will explain string combos to do his specials. #16's 
Capsule Encyclopedia will list all of his capsules in comprehensive order. 
The World Tournament section will explain tactics to complete all three levels 
of the World Tournament with #16.

#16's Basics|
#16's Playing Style|
#16 is one of a handful of characters that does not have a PPPPE string combo.
This makes him very hard to play as for beginners. Hell Flash is relatively
easy to do and is his finisher. I always use 2 Hell Flashes in capsule setups
for #16, and I do one Hell Flash at the beginning of every match. This will
give you the upper hand as it takes away at least one life bar. Rocket Punch 
is also a valuable asset, I don't use it as much as Hell Flash, but for a
variety #16 capsule setup, include it. Then #16 has all the common physical 
moves. Though not nearly as important as Hell Flash, you might want to use 
them anyway.

#16's Capsule Setups|
Hell Flash Set
Hell Flash
Hell Flash
Killing Neck Throw
Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D

Hell Flash right at the beginning of the match, and if you wish to be 
considered cheap, at most, 2 more Hell Flashes and the match is in the bag.

The World Tournament|

The World Tournament is easy for Android #16 when you know how to do it right.
Hell Flash right at the beginning, then go for a ring out, or if that seems 
undoable, then tough it out, and hope for a knockout. Android #16 has a tough
time with KOs in the tournament for some reason.
