Added some information under the Q & A section, Added URL links to Youtube video demonstrations of taunts/colors, Added info on which challenges unlock colors/taunts, Did some general cleaning up and slight proofreading. -Version 1.00- March 30, 2009. Finished first version of the guide. Took about 10 hours to compile. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + II Introduction [IN] + +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Why do this? Plain and simple, I didn't see this information on the net anywhere. So I took it upon myself to take a few hours of my time and compile all of this info in one place. We all know that taunts are as valid and important a tactic to use in your game as anything else so I thought it strange when I didn't see a single guide online explaining what all of the Personal Actions actually did. This guide explains roughly what every color scheme is for every character, using the default costumes. It also tries to explain what every Personal Action (i.e. Taunt/PA) is, with details on what the character does (using text stage direction), as well as outlining what the character says during (in "quotes"). Sometimes the animations are the same between Taunts, but what is said differs. If this is the case, I'll explain it as such. If I ever have anything to personally say in the explanation, I'll put it within [brackets]. You have my permission to copy these lists where ever, in whatever capacity, and as much of the lists as you want, but please give credit where credit is due. I don't expect money for this, I just wanted to do a service to the community. I would like credit for my work though, so please don't be a jerk and take credit for this wherever you decide to post it. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + III Assumptions [AS] + +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ This guide assumes you have already unlocked every Alternate Color and Personal Action from completing the many Survival and Time Trials under Challenge Mode. If you have not, below is a list of which specific trials unlock specific Personal Actions and Colors. You have to complete each Trial in sequential order however to gain access to the next trial in the list, so plan on doing next to all of them if you want every Color and Personal Action. It should be noted that earning the last color scheme (Color 10) actually unlocks a variation on Sakura's alternate downloadable Costume (her Gi-like Uniform), that completely removes her skirt and showcases her undies. So, if that kind of stuff motivates you, you should unlock all of the colors. Color 03 Beat Time Attack Normal 1 Color 04 Beat Survival Mode Normal 1 Color 05 Beat Time Attack Mode Normal 6 Color 06 Beat Survival Mode Normal 6 Color 07 Beat Time Attack Mode Normal 11 Color 08 Beat Survival Mode Normal 11 Color 09 Beat Time Attack Mode Normal 16 Color 10 Beat Survival Mode Normal 16 Personal Action 02 Time Attack Normal 2 Personal Action 03 Survival Normal 2 Personal Action 04 Time Attack Normal 7 Personal Action 05 Survival Normal 7 Personal Action 06 Time Attack Normal 12 Personal Action 07 Survival Normal 12 Personal Action 08 Time Attack Normal 17 Personal Action 09 Survival Normal 17 Presonal Action 10 Beat Time Attack Level 20 This guide is assuming you've set your language to English for all characters. This guide is also assuming that you are playing the American version of the game and thus using the American names for the characters. I don't have a functional enough knowledge of Japanese to adequately translate/transliterate the Japanese phrases for all of the characters, so I couldn't tell you what the characters are saying in their Japanese voices. I'm assuming Capcom has done a decent job translating the phrases from English, so if you don't know Japanese, you can probably assume all of these quotes translate to roughly the same phrase. If I can get help with this in a future revision, I may append Japanese phrases and rough translations/transliterations. These were listened to and recorded with the music turned completely off and the voices set to the highest volume to ensure that I heard accurately what was being said. In some cases, I used studio headphones and my televisions headphone jack to listen carefully and to ensure that what I was hearing was accurate. All in all, I'm confident that what I write here is accurate to the voice samples. What this guide is also missing is the colors for alternate costumes, as I have not purchased the downloadable content. I find it ridiculous that Capcom would charge players for something that is already on the disc, and was readily available in the arcades purchased with Battle Points. In a future revision,I might update this guide with such costume information (i.e. when I can buy it all at once). In the meantime, you can view some of the many videos on youtube that showcase color schemes of the new costumes. [UPDATE] -GameFAQs user StarkMaximum has informed me that the taunt animations DO NOT change as a result of the new costumes. The colors DO VARY slightly from character to character based on the new costumes, but you can rest assured the taunts stay the same regardless of what the character is wearing. So, without further ado, here we go! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + IV Characters [XX] + +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Abel [AB] --------- Color 1 - Default, Light blue shirt, white trunks.

Personal Action 10 - Crosses arms and puts on hand on her face as if flustered: "You're not ready to face me" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Rufus [RU] ---------- [Rufus has almost as many unique Taunts as Dan does.

Personal Action 5 - Crosses arms and leans slightly toward opponent: "Go ahead and hit me!"

Personal Action 10 - Same as PA8: "Oh, come on..." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Seth [SE] --------- [Not too much complexity in his color since they're all mostly solid colors. Personally, I think it's hilarious that he says "Damn" when he whiffs his grabs. I never noticed it until I turned the music down. Also, sometimes his taunts make his character model flicker for a frame. I'm not sure what causes it, but he's the only guy I've seen with this issue.] Color 1 - Default, Gray Body, Black Inverse Color 2 - Red Body, Cyan Inverse Color 3 - Bright Green Body, Purple Inverse Color 4 - Dark Cyan Body, Blood Red Inverse Color 5 - Gold body, Purple Inverse Color 6 - Pink body, Dark deep green inverse Color 7 - Light blue body, Blood Red Inverse Color 8 - Dark blue body, Creamy yellow inverse Color 9 - Bright yellow/gold body, Light blue inverse Color 10 - Beetle shell color body, a mix of cyan and orange, with tones in between, deep red and black inverse Personal Action 1 - Clasps hand into a fist in front of him: "I thought you would be more valuable than this."

Personal Action 10 - Same as PA2: "You look tired, need a break?" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Vega [VE] --------- Color 1 - Default, Yellow and Blue pants, Blue tattoo Color 2 - Yellow and Red scheme, Red tattoo Color 3 - Green and Yellow scheme, Green tattoo Color 4 - Vivid green and creme scheme, Gray Tattoo Color 5 - Muted red and creme scheme, Red tattoo Color 6 - Violet and creme scheme, Purple-ish tattoo Color 7 - Dark blue and creme scheme, Blue tattoo Color 8 - Light violet and creme scheme, very light purple tattoo Color 9 - Goldish scheme with blue belt, goldenrod tattoo Color 10 - Red and creme scheme, blue belt, light red tattoo Personal Action 1 - Drops hands from fighting stances and chuckles lightly. Personal Action 2 - Crouches slightly and beckons opponent with a hand wave towards himself, chuckling lightly Personal Action 3 - Puts hand out in front of him as if showcasing the opponent: "Does your ugliness embarrass you?" Personal Action 4 - Crosses arms, and moves head towards opponent causing his bangs to be brushed aside, emo-style: "Ugly AND clumsy? Pity." [It should be noted that "Pity" is said very quickly after "Clumsy?" and it is close to inaudible because of this. I can assure you though that Vega does indeed state "Pity" and it's totally within character for him to do so. - Thanks Stark] Personal Action 5 - Extends arm in front of him with his hand open and palm facing downwards: "Beautiful death" Personal Action 6 - Crosses the arm without the claw on it around his torso: "Too late, you're mine now." [what's weird is that the claw is ALWAYS on the hand that is facing the screen, regardless of side. When vega jumps over or crosses up an opponent, he quickly turns his back to the screen, and his claw magically moves to the opposite hand. Strange...] Personal Action 7 - Quickly swipes the claw hand towards the ground: "Ugliness and weakness are one in the same." Personal Action 8 - Takes a step back, swipes the claw hand in the air, and swipes the other hand behind him: "Bleed for me! Hahaha!" Personal Action 9 - Same as PA3: "My blades will make you beautiful." Personal Action 10 - Same as PA4: "You're hideous! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Zangief [ZA] ------------ Color 1 - Default, Red Bottom with Shoes Color 2 - Brown bottom Color 3 - Dark gray bottom Color 4 - Cyan blue bottom Color 5 - Grayish bottom Color 6 - Gold cyclone!

Personal Action 6 - Plants fists at waist, looks down and shakes head in dismay: "Weak like kitten" Personal Action 7 - Clenches hands in front of him, let's go and meets them again, this time punching his fist in the palm of his other hand: "Hit me as hard as you can!" Personal Action 8 - Puts hands at his waist and laughs heartily with his eyes closed. Personal Action 9 - Same as PA3: "It's not over yet!" Personal Action 10 - Same as PA7: "You have to be stronger than that!" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + V General Q & A [QA] + +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ (1.) Do you have any favorite taunts? Did you dislike any? (1a.) I absolutely think Fei Long's laying down is hilarious and would possibly be my favorite... If it wasn't for Rufus' equally absurd "Find your Zen" quote which is completely out of character for him and would be an amazing 'insult to injury' to say if you just finished landing his Ultra. I think Gouken was disappointingly generic in most of his quotes, and I was expecting a bit more out of him. Sagat reused alot of his animations as well, but in comparison, the quotes and subtle differences in his facial expressions make up for it, I think. (2.) Words and description are great, but I'd like to see these. Where can I? (2a.) Thankfully, some avid youtuber has already compiled a video of all of the default costume colors as well as a taunt demonstration for each color, similar to what I did to record all of this information in text format. So, if you want to give each taunt a preview before deciding you want to use it without actually booting your game up, check out his videos. Give credit to RenegadeFerret for recording all of these more than a month before I compiled this FAQ. - Video for M. Bison, Sagat, Vega, Balrog, Abel, C.
