-  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 Jacky.

-  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  -

-  Jacky could barely contain his anger against J6, the mysterious organization
   that was after his sister, Sarah.  He was goaded into entering the Fourth
   World Fighting Tournament, but then had to deal with the disappearance of
   Vanessa, who had been guarding his sister.  Even in his races, the continuing
   series of incidents, including sudden pull-outs by his sponsors and
   improbable mechanical breakdowns, seemed to indicate someone tampering with
   his racing career.  J6 was behind everything and unless the organization
   itself was destroyed, there would be no end to Jacky and Sarah's troubles.
   with this new realization, Jacky was determined to put an end to J6.  With
   almost perfect timing, the invitation to the fifth tournament arrives.

-  Personal Opinion -

-  Ok....here's basically my take on Jacky:

   Jacky is by far one of the most popular and well used characters in the
   entire Virtua Fighter cast.  I find him annoying to be honest, but eh.  Jacky
   has a fighting style that beginners can appreciate but his true and best
   potential is seen from an advanced player.  Jacky relies mainly on strike
   attacks and short chain combos.  Jacky has a great defensive/counter game as
   well.  With a blistering offense when used properly and a hell of a defensive
   game, Jacky can destroy and easily decimate any opponent.  I would go so far
   to say that with Jacky you can easily cheese your way through matches and win
   with ease.  A drawback with Jacky though is the fact that even though you can
   get alot with just simple strikes and 2 to 3 hit combos, they're at times
   easily blocked and deflected, leaving Jacky open to a severe butt whupping.
   You have to mix up your offensive strategy to keep your opponents guessing so
   that way you can fully appreciate Jacky's arsenal.  Try not to use too many
   strike attacks only simply because if blocked or deflected properly, it'll
   leave Jacky open for a second or two, giving your opponent the opportunity to
   launch an offensive on you.  Should this happen, then make sure to learn how
   to put up a defensive game with Jacky, or to make use of the few counters
   that he has.  In just a few simple moves, you can easily turn the momentum
   back around and start back up on your opponent.  Jacky is easily a striker
   character, but you have to learn to maintain a slight defensive with him in
   order to not get too carried away.  As a beginner, you could try Jacky out
   and find some comfort in him, but if you put some time and effort into fully
   learning all there is about Jacky, then you'll become a severely deadly force
   to be reckoned with.  A great Jacky fighter can dominate in matches with
   relative ease and even getting perfects over people.  His style doesn't take
   as long as one would think to learn and get down properly, unlike Akira.  The
   only thing is is that Jacky can't just be learned immedieately and start
   kicking butt all over the place.  Just make sure to learn to mix things up 
   with a low to mid to high game, and you'll be set to prove your greatness
   against all challengers!

   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!

   * Jacky *


-  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!
