    -  Well I'll put it simply....I've been working on getting a Virtua Fighter 5
       walkthrough up as a means of my "coming out of retirement" kinda deal.  Well
       I'm still hard at work with it, but I figured as much that I should at least
       put out there some character walkthroughs as well.  I was planning on doing
       this in the first place once I got the full walkthrough up, but I figured
       what the hell....lets do it now.  So with that being said I'm here to give
       you all this guide on Sarah.
    -  As with every other guide that I've wrote, this guide is my own property!  I
       happily made this for all to enjoy and to use, and all that I ask is that if
       you are planning on using this for your site, then just ask me for permission
       ok.  I'm really easy to get along with and generally don't mind it so long as
       you ask for my permission first.  Don't go thinking "Oh he'll never say ok,
       lets just rip the guide and post it anyways" because that's a flawed way of
       thinking.  Just give it a shot sometime and you may be surprised!  My e-mail
       box is always open!
    -  A big reminder to everyone out there....if you're looking for updates to this
       guide, then head on over to www.gamefaqs.com.  I write for that site and that
       site only.....or at least, that's where the guide's origins are.  Any update
       that I do will hit there.  I don't really plan on keeping up with how many
       other hundreds of sites have my guides up for their use and have to go and
       update it on their site as well, so save yourself some trouble and headache
       and check my guide out at GameFAQs ok.  I really don't want to deal with a
       million e-mails asking me about updates and info and such when I'm telling
       you now what to do.

    -  Backstory  -
    -  Sarah had entered the Fourth World Fighting Tournament in the hopes that
       surpassing her brother would allow her to put her past behind her.  But while
       she was able to push Jacky to the edge, she was unable to defeat him.  In
       addition, Sarah was faced with the sudden disappearance of Vanessa, who had
       been protecting her.  Then one day, Sarah heard that Jacky had resumed his
       training in order to destroy J6 itself.  Sarah decided that if she could
       destroy J6 first, she could both surpass her brother and prevent anyone else
       from becoming a victim of the evil organization.  But Sarah knew too little
       of the power of J6.  Her efforts to infiltrate J6 play neatly into their
       hands, and danger threatens her once again...

    -  Personal Opinion -
    -  Ok....here's basically my take on Sarah:
       Well first off other than being a blonde bombshell, Sarah's got a fighting
       style that any beginner can easily take to.  I'm really surprised at how
       simplistic her style is, while still being strong and damaging.  I find that
       hard to believe that she hasn't placed high in the previous game tournaments,
       let alone be able to beat her brother.  Her fighting style does remind me
       alot of Hwoarang's from the Tekken series.  Some Tekken players that use
       him like crazy will find a somewhat familiar ground with Sarah.  Her combos
       are simplistic and with little practice, easily learned.  She is a huge combo
       fighter, so you have to learn head on to use her combos in order to win
       matches.  She does have a few big strikes that can be used to knock around
       opponents, but don't become reliant on them.  A good majority of her big
       strikes are somewhat telegraphed and easily seen ahead of time by alot of the
       veterans and experts in the game.  So take your time learning her mix up game
       properly to keep launching offensives against your opponents.  I find that
       using Sarah as an offensive pressure character is the best way to go.  Sarah
       is strictly a "basics" character you could say.  She doesn't have a huge
       glaring fighting game that distinguishes her, nor does she have any kind of
       "speciality" to her name either.  As I said before, stick to offense with
       only defense in the case that someone starts putting too much pressure for
       you to handle.  She has another stance that she can go into to expand upon
       and mix up with her combo game.  That's her big ticket to winning matches.
       The biggest downside to Sarah I'd say is that because she doesn't have any
       big offensive skills or defensive skills like others, that makes you have to
       resort to using Sarah in a manner that is relatively "basic".  This is to say
       that it just doesn't seem glamourous or worthwhile that you may lose faith
       in the fact that Sarah can dish out quite a bit of pain.  That also means
       once a person becomes a veteran or a pro at this game, then they'll easily
       be able to recognize Sarah's style without hassle and develop a much simple
       and easy gameplan to destroying even a pro with Sarah.  She falls victim easy
       enough to people that use an effective counter game due to her offensive
       nature, and also to other people that are able to put up an even more
       devestating offensive game than her, causing her to shrink back into a very
       limited defensive game of hers.  Sarah though is a truely acceptable
       character to use as a beginner and learn the ropes of this game in no time
       with relative ease and comfort.  For a person to become an expert with Sarah
       would require alot of patience and time to say the least.  You have to learn
       how to keep an offensive game going at all times regardless of who it is and
       what they bring to the table to fight you with.  All in all though...Sarah
       is a great character to hit things off with and learn the ropes with.  A
       dedicated Sarah fan will become an expert with her in no time and figure out
       ways around other characters' fighting styles.  It's not impossible to be
       able to use Sarah in a manner to see through the cracks of another's fighting
       style and break it wide open if you know what you're doing with her.  Besides
       she's so damn gorgeous that at least you'll have something pretty to look at
       while getting your ass kicked or doing the ass kicking!

       Ahhhh....the final chapter of this glorious guide of mine....to think I
       finally made it this far.  This part though isn't written entirely by me...
       This part is written by all of you!  That's right....no matter what I say or
       do to tell you things about characters or explaining their ins and outs,
       everyone has their own style and their own way doing things with each
       character.  In that respect I give to all of you this section.  E-mail in
       your tips, tricks, and fighting techs that you find to be useful for the
       given character in the given situation you're in.  The only way this
       section can get bigger, is by all of you, so flood my e-mail box ok!  I know
       it's at the top, but for convienence my e-mail is:
       I will give full credit to you that send in your tips and tricks, so be a pal
       and help out those around you by contributing to this guide!

    -  First and foremost I give credit to Sega for coming out with one kick ass
       fighter.  I've never been so jaw dropped before by a fighting game with all
       that it shows off.  I'm still going strong with it, so I think I'm now
       turning into a Virtua Fighter fan!  Way to go Sega, by making an addictive
       game like this!
    -  Secondly I'd like to give creds to all of those out there that asked for me
       to come back and make more walkthroughs.  You have no clue how much I missed
       doing these, and just because I'm in the Marines, doesn't mean I have to 
       retire from walkthrough writing!  Thank you for all the support and e-mails
       that all of you have sent telling me how good my past walkthroughs were and
       that you all wanted to see more.  Without the support, I think the drive and
       the love for walkthrough writing would of left me a long time ago.
    -  If there's anything that you wish to add or correct in my walkthrough, then
       by all means, shoot me an e-mail at sanctuary_remix@yahoo.com.  I'll take
       your comments and concerns seriously and get back to you as fast as I can.
       You will be given the proper credit as well for contributing to my guide.
       Thanks again, and I'll sees yas all later!
