     1) INTRODUCTION
    ==============================================================================
    
     Welcome to my King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match (KOF98UM) movelist/guide
     and thank you for reading. This guide will while provide a basic movelist a
     nd move properties description, while noting any significant changes from
     KOF'98. Please note that this is NOT, and will never be a combo guide, and
     whatever combos mentioned in here are as examples to highlight a move's 
     property.
    
     ABOUT KOF'98UM
     KOF'98 Ultimate Match is a 10th year anniversary edition of KOF'98, which is
     arguably one of the most popular, if not the most popular KOF version. Some
     changes to the game are:
    
     - Balance tweaks all round to all characters to some degree. Some characters
       get new moves, some have their attack animations and properties changed.
     - A new character select screen and new pre-fight portraits for the returning
       and EX characters.
     - A new custom mode on top of Advanced and Extra Mode known as Ultimate Mode.
     - Some changes to both Extra and Advanced modes.
     - Kasumi Todoh, Eiji Kisaragi, Geese Howard, Wolgang Krauser and Mr. Big join
       the cast of playable arcade characters. Riot of the Blood Iori and Leona
       are fightable as sub-bosses, and Goenitz and Orochi return to round out the
       final bosses cast. This means every playable character from KOF'94 till '98
       return in 98UM.
     - EX versions of Blue Mary, Geese, King and Ryuji Yamazaki are added to the
       cast. These are based somewhat off their Real Bout and Art of Fighting
       versions.
     - New special introductions for certain matchups, such as Terry versus Geese.
     - All stages from KOF 98 were redone in partial 3D.
     - Some stages from previous KOF and RBFF games were re-added or remade for 
       98UM, together with several new stages. The graphics are not interlaced
       anymore.
     - The theme music for the the returning characters have also been re-added
       into the game. In the PS2 version, you can choose between the original
       arcade tracks, or the PS2-exclusive arranged tracks.
     - The '98 Advanced Mode system that determined how stocks were transferred
       (the smiley/neutral/frowning faces) is removed. Now all characters will
       always transfer stock to their teammates. This goes for Extra and Ultimate
       modes too.

     (near)                     Perform move within throw distance 
    
     * Some aerial moves can be launched during a back/front step or used directly
       from the ground by extending the command so it ends with a jump. For 
       example, Athena's Phoenix Arrow can be done from the ground by motioning
       qcb,ub+K. You cannot cancel a ground normal attack into an aerial special
       or DM.
    
     BASIC MOVES                         ACTION

     f+AB while blocking (1 stock)       Guard Cancel Emergency Evade (forward)
     Press CD (air)                      Blowback Attack
     CD while blocking (1 stock)         Guard Cancel Blowback Attack 
     b/f + C/D (near)                    Basic Throw (unblockable)
     b/f + P/K when grabbed              Throw Escape
    
     - You can only air block aerial attacks, some ground special moves and normal
       projectiles. See the 'Miscellaneous' section for further details.
     - During a vertical hop, your character will perform their diagonal jump
       attack animation instead of their normal vertical jump attack animation.
       Not all characters' vertical jump attacks have a different animation.
     - You can cancel into certain aerial command attacks/specials/DMs during a
       backstep. It usually won't hit however.
     - The Blowback Attack knocks down and is cancelable into specials/DMs. Unlike
       later KOF games, Blowback Attacks cannot be canceled into command attacks.
       Blowback attacks can be blocked high or low.
     - You need to be fully charged or have one ready stock bar to use the Guard
       Cancel Blowback Attack. The Guard Cancel Blowback attack does less damage,
       but is much faster and your character is invincible during the DM flash.
       Note that it is possible for your opponent to block this if they used a
       light attack and you pressed CD late.
     - All basic throws now do the same amount of damage, including the button-
       mashing ones. The button-mashing holds will only hit up to 4 times now as
       opposed to 10 in '98, though each hit does more damage.
     - You can use any button for the Throw Escape, unlike in later KOF. Note that
       not all throws have the same escape timing, and some throws such as Chris' 
       (D) and Lucky's (C) throws are harder to escape from than others.
     - During some unbreakable throws like Goro's Juuji Shime and Shermie's SDM
       Shermie Flash, you have to mash the buttons rapidly to increase the damage.
       Your opponent can do the same to escape sooner. Such normal throws cannot 
       be Throw Escaped from, and must hit at least once before it can be broken
       out of.
     - The Cover Attack from '98 is removed: your teammates will no longer
       interfere if you were dizzied or caught in a button-mashing hold, so
       you'll just have to mash the buttons more frantically. :)
     * In regard to button-mashing moves, you actually only need to tap the 
       button you executed the move with (though hitting several doesn't hurt), 
       and rolling the joystick does not affect the outcome.
     * Back in '98, not all basic throws do the same amount of damage, especially
       in regard to the button-mashing holds. The difference is too little to be
       very noticable however, though Mature and Vice's D throws do somewhat less
       damage than the other characters.
     # You can now randomize your mode by holding down Start (Select in the PS2
       version). If you get Ultimate Mode, the combinations are randomized as
       well.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     EXTRA MODE
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     tap f,f                             Front step
     press and hold ABC                  POW charge
     press ABC when fully charged        Maximum (MAX) mode
     press ABC during certain attacks    Quick MAX activation
     press AB                            Evade (dodge)
     any during Attack Evade             Dodge attack
     press AB during attack              Quick Evade (need charge or MAX mode)
    
     - Your health bar is yellow in Extra mode.
     - In Extra mode, you need to charge your stock bar manually by pressing and
       holding ABC. You may charge any time you're on the ground, and can stop
       charging any time. You also fill your bar by taking hits from non-throw
       attacks, or from blocking attacks.
     * You charge your gauge much faster now. You also recover faster when you
       release ABC.
     - Unlike in '98, you will not go into Maximum (MAX) mode automatically when
       fully charged, though you can perform your Desperation Move (DM) or any
       action that uses stock. To enter MAX mode, simply press ABC again. During
       Maximum mode, you will do increased damage. Once the gauge runs out or upon
       launching a DM, the mode will end. You cannot charge your bar while in MAX
       mode.
     * A Guard Cancel Blowback attack always empties your MAX mode bar in Extra
       mode, regardless of how full the gauge was. On the other hand, a Guard
       Cancel Emergency Evade will NEVER empty your gauge no matter how little
       of it was left.
     - If your lifebar is flashing red (critical), you can perform DMs infinitely
       without having to charge your gauge first. If you are in MAX mode, you will
       perform the Super Desperation Move (SDM) instead. Note that if you have
       a charged bar but did not go into MAX mode, you will still perform the DM
       version AND lose the stock bar to boot.
     * Unlike KOF'98, there is now a short delay after using a DM before you can
       perform another when your lifebar is critical. This is indicated by your
       lifebar not flashing for a brief period. The duration varies between the
       characters and (S)DMs.
     * When your health is critical, your MAX mode duration will last longer as
       well.
     - The Quick MAX allows you to cancel certain attacks and go into MAX mode
       instantly. This also allows you to recover faster from whatever move you
       Quick MAXed from, so it is possible to use this to extend your combo or set
       up for a (S)DM. Only physical attacks can be Q. MAXed from, but you can Q.
       MAX from just about any physical attack if it hits or is blocked, and it
       can be done in mid-air as well.
     - Pressing AB results in your character dodging into the background, during
       which they are immune to anything but special throws. Dodges recover much
       faster now, making them far harder to punish than compared to 98 (though
       there is still a very slight period of vulnerabilty as the dodge ends).
     - You may press any attack button during the dodge to perform a dodge attack
       that does little damage, but is cancelable into specials/DMs (not command
       attacks however). Attacking ends your invincibility period.
     - If you are fully charged, you can dodge when making a normal or ground
       based command attack. This will use your stock unless you are already in 
       MAX mode, where it reduces your gauge instead. 
     * It's possible for you to make an attack, Quick Evade, then use a Dodge 
       Attack and cancel out of it to extend your combo slightly. It also allows
       you to cancel normally uncancelable moves like Kyo's Goufu You and combo
       after.
     - You can cancel into certain aerial command attacks/specials/DMs during a
       forward step but your character is unable to attack otherwise until they 
       land. Note that most of the aerial attacks won't hit however. You can dodge
       low attacks with a well-timed front/back step, but the step distance and 
       duration is fixed, meaning it will take the same amount of time to land
       whether it was done from a distance or right in front of opponent.
     * Unlike in '98, there is no advantage given if you lose a character, so the
       POW charge bar is the same length for all team members. However, your
       charge level willl now carry over to the next character. Better yet, the 
       POW charge bar is also shorter now, about the same length as the second
       character's bar in 98.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     ADVANCED MODE
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     tap f,f (hold)                      Forward run
     Press ABC (1 stock)                 MAX mode
     Press AB                            Emergency Evade (forward roll) 
     b+AB                                Emergency Evade (backwards)
     AB while attacking (1 stock)        Quick Emergency Evade
     Use both P/K when motioning a DM    Quick SDM (requires 3 stock bars)
    
     - Your health bar is green in Advanced mode.
     - In Advanced Mode, you need one free stock bar to enter MAX mode. While in
       MAX mode, you do increased damage, and can perform SDMs. Once you perform 
       an SDM or when the gauge runs out, the mode ends. Unlike Extra Mode's MAX 
       mode, you do NOT get to perform a DM for free while the mode is active: you
       need at least one free stock bar, and you can only perform SDMs.
     - You build stock by making attacks: normal and command attacks have to hit
       or be blocked to gain stock, special moves build stock on launch, and again
       upon connecting. You also gain some stock from getting hit by most 
       non-throw attacks.
     - You still gain stock while in MAX mode, but at a reduced rate, and only
       from special moves.
     - You can now perform SDMs outside of MAX mode by pressing both the Punch
       or Kick buttons used for the DM version, (qcf,qcf+AC for Kyo's Mu Shiki
       for example). This requires 3 stock bars however. You will get the (A/B)
       version SDM if you used the 3-stock version.
     - In Advanced mode, you roll to avoid attacks. Unlike the dodge in Extra
       mode, you are only invincible for about half the roll animation, and you
       can be thrown at any point with basic or special throws.
     - If you have at least one free stock, you can perform a roll while blocking.
     * You can now perform a roll to cancel a normal or ground-based command attack
       if it hits or is blocked, like in KOF'2002. This requires one stock.
     - In Advanced mode, you character runs forward and will continue to do so
       while the joystick is pushed forward. You may cancel the run into any
       attack, a hop/jump or a forward roll. There is a very slight period of
       vulnerability before you can stop running and block.
     - You can hold up to 3 stocks initially, Each teammate you lose increases the
       number of stocks you can hold to a maximum of 5 bars.
     * All characters will now always transfer their accumulated stock over to the
       next character. A partially filled bar will now carry over as well. Unlike
       in '98, characters will only transfer the stock they have: there are no
       bonuses or penalties to your stock gauge when losing a character.

     - Your health bar is blue in Ultimate mode.
     - Ultimate Mode is a new addition that allows you to mix and match the
       features of Advanced and Extra modes together. The available options are
       as follows (in corresponding order):
       a) forward run or front step.
       b) roll or dodge.
       c) Advanced/Extra mode style stock gauges. 
     - Picking the relevant mode gauge gives you the benefits of that mode. The
       Extra Mode bar lets you Quick MAX and launch free DMs when low on health,
       while the Advanced Mode bar lets you hold multiple stocks and launch SDMs 
       regardless of health level.
     - You transfer stocks to the next chracter regardless of which charge method
       you chose.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     HIT LOCATION PROPERTIES
     [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.
    
     CANCEL CHART PROPERTIES
     c   - Cancelable into command attacks, special moves and DMs.
     s   - Cancelable into special moves and DMs. Uppercase (S) is used for
           command attacks.
     r   - Repeatable into itself (LIGHT ATTACKS ONLY).
     -   - Not cancelable or repeatable.
    
     NOTE: To read the chart, [M]/r/c means the attack is a mid-level attack,
           is a light attack that can combo with itself and is cancelable. For
           hard attacks, double slashes ([M]/c/c) means that attack does 2 hits
           and is cancelable on the indicated hit(s).
    
     MOVE PROPERTIES
     KD  - Move knocks down an opponent, but can use recovery roll (Fallbreaker).
           (S)DMs, throws and sweeps (crouching D) generally knock down, so only
           the NR property will be used if the move isn't recoverable.
     NR  - No Recovery: Move knocks down with no recovery roll permitted. 
     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 no followup was done, a juggled
           character may use the Fallbreaker upon landing.
     T   - Throw move, cannot be reversed. Basic throws will not be noted.
     P   - Projectile, cannot be reversed, though certain moves absorb or reflect
           them.
     RV  - Reversal move. Works against non-throw, non-projectile moves only.
     #   - See notes. 
    
     * Please refer to the 'Miscellaneous' section after the movelist for further
       details.
    
     #. The 'default macro' is the action that happens when you hit the 'Command'
        button in the PS2 version. You have to use it up close for the sequence to
        register properly, so assume all normal attacks to be the close version. 
     #. The macro combos for Player 1 are usable in all modes (with or without MAX
        mode) in the open or the corner. 
     #. Player 2's macros all involve performing a DM, so you need stock for them
        to register properly. Also, not all of the macro combos will work in MAX
        mode due to normal and command attacks pushing back further or the altered
        properties of the SDM version.

     * To use the EX characters or Orochi Team members, hold Start (Select in the
       PS2 version) over the original character's portrait and press a button. You
       cannot have both versions of the same character in the same team. All EX
       characters have the same normal and command attacks as the normal versions.
     * EX and alternate characters' names are displayed in red.
     * You can now get EX characters when you use the Roulette. The Roulette is
       found next to Rugal's portrait in the arcade version. Note that a randomly
       selected character will be using a random colour scheme as well. In the PS2
       version, you may even get edited colours if you saved any schemes in Colour
       Edit mode.
     # In the PS2 version, hold down L1 to randomly select your character, or R1
       to randomly select one of the default teams if you haven't picked any 
       characters yet.
     # Also, if you have the 'Same Character' option turned on in the PS2 version,
       it's possible for the roulette to give you two or even all three identical
       characters or their EX versions where applicable. 
     * All EX characters now have four win poses like the normal versions. The
       Orochi Team are exception to this, and have only one win pose each.
     * I will only provide information about the altered or new moves for the EX
       or alternate characters. Please refer to the original character's movelist
       for the full move description.
     * The bosses are not playable in the arcade version. With the exception of
       Omega Rugal, the other bosses need to be unlocked in the PS2 version by
       defeating them first in Arcade Mode.
     * You cannot have both versions of Iori, Leona, and Rugal in the same team.
     * ROTB Iori and Omega Rugal have only one win pose, while ROTB Leona and
       Orochi have two.

     #. Kyo can link his crouching B into his close standing C.
     #. Kyo's far D is faster now.
     1. NARAKU OTOSHI: Knocks down opponent in mid-air. Is usable during a 
        backstep.
     2. GOUFU YOU: The 2nd hit is an overhead when used on its own. Becomes 
        cancelable when canceled into. In MAX mode, this will no longer combo, 
        hits only once and also pushes opponent back further, preventing most of
        his specials (other than the Dokugami) from hitting.
     #. The Goufu You won't combo against some characters like King, Yuri, Leona
        and Choi. You'll get the single hit version like when he is MAXed.
     3. 88 SHIKI: Both hits are low attacks. Combos from light attacks.
     4. ONIYAKI: A hits once, C hits twice. The C version now knocks down on
        either hit. Both versions have autoguard when Kyo sticks his elbow out,
        before he jumps and will hit twice on a Counter Hit.
     5. 75 SHIKI KAI: Juggles opponent on the 2nd hit, although it is easier to
        followup from the D version. While in MAX mode, the 2nd kick tends to miss
        when this is chained into unless used from a cross-up or in the corner.
     6. R.E.D KICK: B version is faster and combos from the D Shiki Kai, while
        D version arcs higher and further. The B version still misses against some
        crouching opponents like in '98: if the Goufu You will not get both hits
        against a character, this will miss when that character is crouching as
        well.
     7. KOTOTSUKI YOU: Kyo is immune to low physical attacks during the dash, but
        not floor-level projectiles.
     8. NUE TSUMI: Kyo does an upward-aimed punch that knocks down. There is a
        very brief period during the start that allows this to reverse attacks of
        any level. You can't juggle after the punch hits, even on a Counter Hit.
     9. ARAGAMI: The followups can be performed regardless of whether this hits or
        not. The move can negate normal projectiles. Kyo has autoguard as he steps
        forward, before he strikes. If you perform this after juggling with the
        75 Shiki Kai in the corner, the Yanosabi > Migiri Ugachi can combo after.
    10. YANOSABI: Is a no-recovery knockdown punch. Can be used as a finisher for
        the Konokizu, or as a followup for the Aragami (won't combo however) with
        its own set of followups.
    11. NANASE: Kyo hops forward with a knockdown kick. This no longer travels as
        far.
    12. DOKUGAMI: Kyo's punch can negate normal projectiles, and he has autoguard
        as he steps forward swinging the punch. The followups can now connect if
        this hits opponent in mid-air. You can Quick Max this, then perform a 
        close C to restart your combo.
    13. OROCHI NAGI: A version is immune to most low attacks, C version is immune
        to mid/high attacks for the DM version. The immunity begins when Kyo is
        holding up a flaming hand, and lasts while the move is being delayed. Kyo
        is vulnerable as he slides forward to attack. SDM version has no 
        invincibility, but damages and juggles opponent on contact while negating
        normal projectiles. The flame wave can destroy normal/DM projectiles and
        is not negatable. The DM version combos from a canceled Goufu You, while
        the SDM version does not (see above).
     #. Unlike later KOF versions, delaying this has no effect on its speed.
     #. If only the first two hits of the flame wave connect on a mid-air opponent
        during the SDM version, the move will juggle.
     #. The only reliable ways I know of to combo into the SDM Orochi Nagi are:
        a) Quick MAX the 2nd hit of the 75 Shiki Kai when using the Extra gauge.
        b) combo into the 75 Shiki Kai normally, then use the 3-stock AC version
        in Advanced Mode.
        c) combo into the 75 Shiki Kai when opponent is cornered or use a cross-up
        while in MAX mode (you must hit deep enough for both kicks to connect), 
        and perform the SDM as usual.
    14. MU SHIKI: The initial fire column is a projectile that negates normal and
        some DM projectiles. During the entire move, Kyo's body can negate normal
        projectiles, and opponent coming in contact with him will be hit, even if
        they were behind him. You can taunt opponent after the DM version if any
        of the punches connect. The DM version also Guard Crushes a blocking
        opponent on the last hit. This has no invincibility on startup however,
        and cannot hit opponent juggled from the 75 Shiki Kai.

     3. KUUCHUU RAIJIN KEN: This knocks down now.

     5. IAI GERI: Combos from light attacks. If it hits late (after his knee is

     6. HANDOU SANDAN GERI: Combos from hard attacks. The last hit knocks down.
        B is faster while D goes further.
     #. The B version Handou Sandan Geri and Super Inazuma Kick has Benimaru
        flipping backwards so he lands a little further back, making it a
        little safer if blocked.
     7. RAIKOU KEN: A version goes forward, C version diagonally upward. SDM
        version is aimed forward. This negates normal and some DM projectiles.
     8. ELECTRIGGER: The initial grab launches faster now.
     9. RAIKOU KATATEGOMA: New move; Benimaru performes a Raijin Ken-covered
        Shinkuu Katategoma. The SDM version has him finishing with a multi-hit
        Super Inazuma Kick if the move hits or is blocked. For some reason, this
        will combo from 3 crouching Bs, but not two of them.

     #. The Tsukami Tataki Tsuke is automatically done when Goro is within throw
        distance of his opponent. You get the Juuji Shime when you perform a C 
        throw directly next to opponent.
     #. You can increase the damage of the Juuji Shime by mashing the buttons 
        rapidly.
     1. TAMA TSUBUSHI: A no-recovery downward bash. This is now an overhead. You
        can't combo into this, but the Kirikabu Gaeshi can combo after this hits.
     2. ZUJOU BARAI: Goro crouches and does a upward punch. Move is cancelable.
        This juggles if it hits a mid-air opponent.
     3. KUMO TSUKAMI NAGE: Anti-air throw, will miss crouching opponents. Can hit
        certain tall opponents like Rugal, Chang, and Yamazaki.
     4. KIRIKABU GAESHI: Combos off hard attacks. This can hit a floored opponent,
        such as after a sweep (if opponent did not use a Fallbreaker), or after 
        the first two inputs of the Arashi no Yama. Goro is immune to low physical
        attacks during this move.
     5. JIRAI SHIN: C version is a feint. A version is low, full-screen attack
        that must be crouched or jumped over. The move launches much faster now,
        but can no longer OTG opponent.
     6. CHOU OOSOTOGARI: Goro is invincible during part of the initial grab 
        animation. This combos from light attacks only.
     7. NEKKO GAESHI: Reversal, counters mid level normal and command attacks 
        only and cannot reverse any attack above or below Goro's arm level. This
        can only reverse attacks during the initial frames, before Goro's arms 
        stop moving.
     8. URA NAGE: Ranged throw. Goro is immune to low physical attacks during
        the dash, but not against floor-level projectiles.
     9. CHOU UKEMI: Works like a normal roll, but has shorter range and less 
        invincibility time. This cannot roll past opponent on the ground, but can
        be canceled into.
    10. ARASHI NO YAMA: Goro will grab a nearby opponent, but only after a
        short pause from startup, making this serve somewhat as a reversal. Goro
        now has autoguard and is immune to throws when his arms are raised. (In
        '98 he couldn't be stunned from hits, but still takes full damage)

     #. Terry's standing CD can dodge some low attacks, but not floor-level 
        projectiles.
     #. Terry's crouching D is a low attack, but has odd properties: it can hit
        low hopping opponents and defeat some moves with low invincibility, such
        as Kyo and Saisyu's (A) Orochi Nagi.
     #. Terry's far D will not hit if opponent runs up close to him before he
        finishes extending his leg.
     1. BACK KNUCKLE: Is cancelable on either hit. The move pushes back pretty 
        far though, so only the Power Charge will combo reliably after.
     2. RISING UPPER: A fast upward aimed punch; can combo from light attacks. 
        Move juggles if it Counter hits against a jumping opponent at the 
        corner.
     3. POWER WAVE: Knocks down if it hits up close or on a Counter Hit. Neither
        version goes full-screen, and only the A version is chainable, but this
        move cannot be reflected.
     4. CRACK SHOOT: This move can avoid low attacks, with the D version going
        higher and further.
     5. RISING TACKLE: A version does 5 hits, while C does 7 and goes higher and 
        further. This has autoguard before the first hit. 
     6. POWER DUNK: Is a no-recovery attack if both hits connect. The 'dunk' is 
        not an overhead although it looks like one.
     7. POWER CHARGE: This can be canceled into the Rising Tackle if it hits or
        is blocked, though it won't do full hits. In Extra Mode, you can also
        Quick MAX this as a setup for the Power Geyser. When in MAX mode, the
        Rising Tackle will only do one hit if used after this. Alternately, you
        can follow up the juggle with a (D) Power Dunk or a jumping attack. 
     8. POWER GEYSER: The geyser negates projectiles, including some DMs and
        cannot be negated even if Terry is hit. The SDM version does not get full
        hits against a jumping or juggled opponent. If Terry is hit during the 
        first or second hit of the SDM version, the move will end prematurely.
        The SDM version will now do all 3 hits if you chained into it in the
        corner (if used on its own, the subsequent geysers will still miss).
     9. HIGH ANGLE GEYSER: The last hit (the geyser) negates normal and DM
        projectiles.

     #. Andy's jumping punches are cancelable into the Gen'ei Shiranui, but it
        won't combo.
     1. AGE MEN: 2-hit upward aimed punch; can chain from light attacks. Move 
        juggles a jumping/juggled opponent: if so, the Shouryuu Dan can connect.
        Either hit is cancelable.
     2. UWA AGITO: Overhead kick, unless you cancel into it, which makes it 
        cancelable into the Gen'ei Shiranui.
     3. HISHOU KEN: Knocks down and negates normal projectiles. This can combo off
        hard attacks or the Age Men.
     4. GEKI HISHOU KEN: New move. Andy does a very large Hishou Ken (similar to
        his RBFF version) which cannot be chained into.
     5. GEKIHEKI HAISUI SHOU: Unblockable attack that leaves opponent juggled. Has
        no miss animation, but an opponent can roll out of it before it hits when
        used on its own. This is NOT a throw, and can be reversed.
     6. KUUHA DAN: D goes further and higher than B version. Only B version can 
        combo from normal attacks. Neither version will do full 5 hits against 
        jumping or juggled opponents.
     7. SHOURYUU DAN: The A version does 7 hits up close, C version does 6. Unlike
        in later KOF, this can be recovery rolled from.
     9. ZAN'EI KEN: Dashing elbow attack. Can follow with the Gadankou if it hits,
        is blocked or when near opponent. 
    10. GADANKOU: This move homes in on opponent: Andy will turn around and 
        launch it the other way if an opponent rolls or jumps past him during 
        the Zan'ei Ken.
    11. GEN'EI SHIRANUI: Diving elbow attack, can used during a front or backstep.
        Only the Shimo Agito will combo reliably in the open.
    12. SHIMO AGITO: This does not hit low, unlike in later KOF games.
    13. UWA AGITO: This is similar to his f+B command attack, except done from the
        Gen'ei Shiranui. It is possible to combo into this if the Gen'ei Shiranui
        was done from a canceled Uwa Agito (command attack) in the corner, but it
        doesn't hit reliably. The recovery time is significantly improved now.
    14. HISHOU RYUUSEI KEN: Andy will perform the entire move regardless of 
        whether it hits or not. The last attack is a projectile: he performs it 3
        times during the SDM version. This will now combo off light attacks.
     #. Back in '98, there was an interesting glitch with the Hishou Ryuusei Ken 
        if the initial punches KOed the final team member before the beam hits: 
        the background would turn white like usual upon the KO, except both 
        characters' portraits remain on-screen, and the screen freezes slightly
        longer than usual before Andy launches the beam. This had no impact to
        gameplay, but is pretty cool to watch. :)
    15. CHOU REPPA DAN: The DM version will not do full 7 hits on a jumping or 
        juggled opponent. B version is faster, while D version goes higher and
        has full screen range. SDM version is a faster, 16-hit version of the 
        B version and can get full hits against jumping/juggled opponents.

     #. Joe has no far D animation.
     #. You can increase the damage of the Knees of Hades by mashing the buttons 
        rapidly.
     1. SLIDING: Combos from hard attacks only and knocks down.
     2. LOW KICK: This will push opponent back further in MAX mode.
     3. BAKURETSU KEN: Can combo from light attacks. You use either Bakuretsu 
        Finish regardless of whether this hits or not, and the (A) version is an
        overhead.
     4. HURRICANE UPPER: Projectile move, A is faster and combos from a single
        hard attack, while Joe throws two tornados for the C version, which knocks
        down on the 2nd hit. Neither version can hit an opponent directly next to
        Joe but the tornado(s) cannot be reflected.
     5. TIGER KICK: This will now only hit once normally, and though it still
        hit twice when blocked or on a Counter Hit.
     6. OUGON NO KAKATO: Both versions will juggle if they hit a jumping opponent,
        though it is easier to followup from the B version. The move does 3 hits,
        but will get only 2 hits against an opponent on the ground. The B version 
        is no longer chainable, so neither version will combo from normals.
     7. EXPLOSIVE HURRICANE TIGER HEEL: Joe launches several Hurricane Uppers
        towards the end of the move, which cannot be reversed.
     8. SCREW UPPER: Projectile move, cannot be negated and negates other normal
        and DM projectiles. The SDM version does more damage and hits when used 
        from a distance. The move may not get full hits against a jumping opponent
        if it hits before the tornado travels forward. The button version used
        during the SDM version determines the tornado's speed, with the C version
        travelling faster, but doing less hits and slightly less damage than the
        A version.
     #. The Screw Upper cannot be negated, but if two Joes throw it at each other,
        both will get hit if they were within range of each other's tornados.

     #. Ryo can chain his crouching B with a crouching/standing C. The timing is
        fairly strict however.
     #. Ryo's far B is slower now.
     #. Ryo's close C range has been decreased, and you may get the far version
        after a jump-in instead. His far C is faster however.
     #. In UM, the Haoh Shokou Ken, Kohou and Kyokugen-Ryuu Renbu Ken's commands
        overlap each other somewhat. This isn't a problem if you're launching the
        Kyokugen-Ryuu Renbu Kyaku or Haoh Shokou Ken on their own, but if you 
        chained into them (or tried to dash in with the Kyokugen-Ryuu Renbu Ken),
        you may wind up getting one of the other moves instead. Alternately, wait
        for a moment or leave the joystick neutral after hitting with your normal
        attack before performing your intended move.
     1. HYOUCHUU WARI: Overhead chop, unless canceled into. You can Quick MAX this
        and combo the Tenchi Haoh Ken after when using an Extra Mode gauge.
     2. KO'OH KEN: Both versions knock down. C goes further, but is not chainable.
     3. KOHOU: (A) hits once normally, (C) hits twice up close and either hit will
        now knock down. Both will hit twice on a Counter Hit.
     4. MOH KOH RAIJIN SATSU: No-recovery chop. B is faster while D arcs higher
        and further.
     5. MOH KOH RAIJIN GOU: A version is chainable from hard attacks only. You
        can cancel the 2nd hit into either Kohou, though using the C version
        will only do one hit. The C version is now slower, but allows you to 
        follow with the Hien Shippuu Kyaku. Alternately, you can motion qcb+AC to
        get an alternate version similar to the A version, except you can cancel
        it into his Hien Shippu Kyaku as well. All versions have autoguard on
        Ryo's palm just before he performs the first hit.
     6. HIEN SHIPPUU KYAKU: B is faster and chainable from light buttons and will
        now always do 2 hits in combos. D version goes further and does 3 hits up
        close (it will no longer do one less hit in combos). Ryo can go past low
        attacks during this move, though the D version may end up arcing over
        a crouching opponent. You can Quick MAX this in the corner to juggle
        opponent, the Tenchi Haoh Ken or Kohou can combo after.
     7. KYOKUGEN-RYUU RENBU KEN: Unblockable attack that leaves opponent juggled.
        This cannot be reversed, but opponent can roll away before the first hit
        if this is done on its own. Note that the Ryuko Ranbu and Haoh Shokou Ken
        won't combo from this.
     8. HAOH SHOKOU KEN: Negates normal projectiles. Only the A version will combo
        from hard attacks. The SDM version does 5 hits and will negate other DM
        projectiles but cannot be chained into.
     9. RYUKO RANBU: Ryo is invincible during the startup flash. If blocked, Ryo
        will perform the bulk of the autocombo, which does chipping damage. 
    10. TENCHI HAOH KEN: The DM version now does more damage normally, but less
        Counter damage. The SDM version does little damage but dizzies a hit
        opponent, unless they were already dizzied. SDM version Guard Crushes a
        blocking opponent. This can combo from light attacks.

     1. KOURYUU KOUKYAKU GERI: Overhead attack. Is cancelable into the Hien 
        Ryuujin Kyaku when canceled into, but it will only hit at the corner.
     2. RYUU HANSHUU: Cancelable kick. When used after the Kyokugen-ryuu Renbu 
        Kyaku or if it hits oppponent in mid-air, you can follow up with a Ryuuga
        or Ryuu Zanshou. You need to launch this late to get both hits from the (C)
        Ryuuga.
     3. RYUU-GEKI KEN: Is slower to launch than Ryo's Ko'oh Ken, but stays on
        screen longer (more so with the C version). Combos from hard attacks only.
        Unlike in '98, this can no longer hit if Robert was hit, even if the
        projectile is already on-screen.
     4. RYUUGA: Anti-air uppercut. C version does 2 hits, goes higher and will now
        knock down on either hit. Both will hit twice on a Counter Hit.
     5. RYUU ZANSHOU: Anti-air flip kick. The B version does slightly more damage
        than the A Ryuuga, but both versions do less damage than the C Ryuuga. The
        D version goes higher and lands Robert further back. You can now cancel
        this into the Hien Ryuujin Kyaku if it hits or is blocked.
     6. KYOKUGEN-RYUU RENBU KYAKU: Unblockable command attack that juggles a hit
        opponent. This move cannot be reversed, but can rolled past before it hits
        when used on its own.
     7. HIEM RYUUJIN KYAKU: Robert will no longer rebound off opponent if this
        was blocked (he continues diving to land in front of opponent instead).
     8. HIEN SENPUU KYAKU: B does 3 hits, D does 4, but will usually get only 3 in
        unless used on tall characters. Robert is immune to low attacks during the
        move. Either version can combo from light attacks. 
     9. HAOH SHOKOU KEN: Negates normal projectiles. A version is now chainable 
        from hard attacks or the Ryuu Hanshu. The SDM version does 5 hits and will
        negate most other DM projectiles but cannot be chained into.
    10. RYUUKO RANBU: Robert is invincible during the startup flash. If blocked,
        Robert will perform the bulk of the autocombo, which does chipping damage.
        The SDM version will now combo from a close or crouching C > Ryuu Hanshuu.
    11. MUEI SENPUU JUUDAN KYAKU: Robert is immune to low attacks from the 2nd/5th
        (DM/SDM) hits onwards. He won't perform the Ryuu Zanshou finisher if this
        misses or was blocked. The ground version will now combo from light
        attacks, though it will do one less hit (the SDM will not combo off a 
        canceled Ryu Hanshuu however). You can now perform this move in mid-air,
        which only combos from a canceled Kouryuu Koukyaku Geri in the corner. The
        air version does 7/11 hits (DM/SDM) as opposed to 9/12 for the ground 
        version, and has a slightly different animation.

     2. KO'OH KEN: Either version chains from hard attacks and knocks down.
     3. KUUGA: Either version combos from light attacks. The Ura Kuuga can be used
        to follow the C version regardless of whether it hit or not. The (A)
        version Kuuga may only do one hit on certain characters in the open, even
        on a Counter Hit, though both hits will connect reliably in the corner.
     4. YURI CHOU KNUCKLE: Yuri steps forward with a knockdown punch. Neither
        version can be chained into. A recovers faster while C travels further.
     5. RAI'OH KEN: Is a no-recovery attack. Can now be performed in mid-air.
     6. YURI CHOU MAWASHI GERI: B does 2 hits and combos from light attacks. C
        does 3 hits and combos from hard attacks only. Both versions can go past
        low attacks.
     7. HAOH SHOKOU KEN: Projectile, negates normal projectiles. C version travels
        faster, while A version now combos from hard attacks. The SDM version does
        5 hits and will negate other DM projectiles but cannot be chained into.
     8. HIEN REKKOU: Yuri does 3/6 (DM/SDM) multi-hit Yuri Chou Uppers. She will
        perform the entire move regardless of whether it hits or not. This combos
        from light attacks.
     9. HIEN HOU'OU KYAKU: Yuri will perform several hits if this is blocked, but
        it does no chipping damage. The SDM version is a no-recovery knockdown.
        This combos from light attacks.

     #. Leona has no far standing A animation.
     #. Leona can dash under mid-level normal projectiles.
     #. Leona's crouching A is faster and links into itself easier.
     #. Leona's jumping kicks/CD can cancel into the V-Slasher.
     #. Leona's far D takes her off the ground for a brief moment, allowing her to
        dodge some low attacks.
     1. STRIKE ARCH: Overhead, no recovery kick. Is cancelable into the V-Slasher
        when canceled into.
     #. Since Leona doesn't have a special move done with qcf+K, you can perform 
        the Strike Arch by motioning qcf+B, then motion hcb+P to easily combo into
        the V-Slasher.
     2. MOON SLASHER: Either version combos off light attacks. C goes slightly
        forward.
     3. BALTIC LAUNCHER: Both versions juggle and negate normal projectiles, with
        A/C doing 6/12 hits respectively. Leona can avoid low attacks during the C
        version.
     4. GRAND SABER: This move cannot be reversed. Leona will not perform the
        slash if she can't reach opponent during the B version, while D version
        will always attack at the end of the dash. You can only use the Gliding
        Buster if the D version hits or is blocked, which will now combo from 
        hard attacks.
     5. GLIDING BUSTER: Leona lands behind opponent if this was blocked.
     6. X-CALIBER: If blocked, the B version will land Leona behind opponent. This
        cannot be reversed.
     7. I-SLASHER: Knockdown projectile. Leona can now move after the projectile 
        is thrown. This can no longer negate normal projectiles, but it stays 
        on-screen when blocked, though it cannot hit anymore after that. The
        projectile will disappear if Leona blocks an attack or was hit. The C
        version travels faster than in '98. Even though the move cannot hit after
        being blocked, opponent will be forced into blocking animation if they
        held the joystick back.
     8. EARRING EXPLOSIVE: Hit lows once it reaches leg level. B version has a
        short arc, bounces forward once then explodes (the explosion can hit). D
        version travels in a long arc without bouncing. You can now follow-up if
        it hits after you regain control of Leona like in later KOF games.
     9. V-SLASHER: Leona is invincible during the startup flash and is now
        invincible during the dive as well. A dives at a steeper angle than C.
    10. GRAVITY STORM: Leona will always perform the initial kicks. If either kick
        hits during the DM version, she will attempt to perform the finishing 
        explosive grab. For the SDM version, the last kick must hit for her to
        finish the move. The DM version combos from light or hard attacks, but not
        reliably and may miss against some characters, especially in the open (it's
        more likely to connect in the corner from light attacks, but it can still
        miss on some characters). The SDM will combo properly off light attacks.
    11. REBEL SPARK: D version travels full screen. Either version combos from 
        hard attacks. Leona is invincible during the startup flash. This move
        cannot be reversed.

     #. Ralf has no far standing A animation. His standing A isn't cancelable,
        but the Super Argentine Backbreaker will combo from it.
     #. Ralf can dodge some low attacks during his close standing D.
     #. Ralf's far and crouching C attacks are now slower.
     1. VULCAN PUNCH: Knockdown move that hits twice on a Counter hit. Ralf can
        move forward, but not backward with this move. You can now cancel this
        by pressing ABCD.
     2. GATLING ATTACK: Both versions combo from light attacks. Like in 98, the A
        version will only get 2 hits on an opponent on the ground.
     #. The only way to connect all 3 hits of the (A) Gatling Attack is to use it
        against a cornered opponent when they are waking up. 
     3. KYUHKOHKA BAKUDAN PUNCH: The ground version can hit on the way up or down,
        but not both ways at once. The descending punch is a no-recovery overhead
        and can be performed in mid-air. You can cancel into the mid-air version
        from his jumping punches, but it won't combo. The diving punch can now hit
        a floored opponent like in KOF'XI.
     4. RALF KICK: D version goes further than B. Both versions can go past low
        attacks. This has a chance to do a Critical Hit, and on the very rare
        occasion of scoring a Counter AND Critical Hit, an opponent hit in mid-air
        will be juggled. The B version Guard Crushes a blocking opponent. This
        will not hit until Ralf has kicked out, so it can't hit at startup.
     5. GALACTICA PHANTOM: Unblockable punch. DM version has less startup pause.
        Ralf can no longer be stunned from any physical or projectile attack 
        during the SDM version, but will take full damage from hits and can still
        be thrown. The SDM version now does over 90% damage by default, and will
        instantly KO any non-boss character on a Counter Hit.
     6. BARIBARI VULCAN PUNCH: Ralf will perform the entire autocombo regardless of
        whether it hits or not. He is invincible during the startup flash and as
        he steps forward with the initial Vulcan Punch.

     #. Clark can dodge some low attacks during his close standing D.
     1. STOMPING: A cancelable kick. Combos from the first hit of Clark's close
        C, but his specials won't connect in such a case.
     2. VULCAN PUNCH: Does 3(A)/5(C) hits and knocks down. You can move Clark
        forward during this. If you Quick MAX this, opponent will be juggled.
     3. SUPER ARABIAN BURGLARY BACKBREAKER/ROLLING CRADLE: The Super Arabian 
        Burglary Backbreaker stops at half-screen distance, while the Rolling
        Cradle has Clark running full-screen distance. Both are immune to low
        physical attacks during the dash.
     4. NAPALM STRETCH: Anti-air throw, does not hit opponent on the ground. This
        can no longer be air blocked.
     5. FRANKENSTEINER: Clark is immune to low attacks during the grab. Cannot be
        chained into, unlike later KOF games.
     6. FLASHING ELBOW: Follow-up for the (*) marked moves. May miss if used in
        corners.
     7. RUNNING THREE: Clark is immune to low physical attacks during the dash.
     8. NAPALM STRIKE: New anti-air throw (S)DM similar to his Napalm Stretch,
        except he lifts opponent off-screen and slams them down with an explosion.
        It is slower to start than the Napalm Stretch, but Clark is invincible
        while rising. As with other air throws, this can hit an opponent above
        Clark, but not below him. The SDM version has Clark staying off-screen for
        a longer period of time.
     #. Since Clark doesn't have a hcb+P move here, you can motion hcb+P twice to
        combo his close C into the Ultra Argentine Backbreaker.

     #. Athena can triangle jump.
     #. Athena has no far standing B animation.
     1. RENKANTAI: Cancelable command attack, can combo from light attacks. This
        will only do one hit if canceled from a hard attack, and her specials/DMs
        will not combo in the open.
     2. PHOENIX BOMB: Cancelable overhead attack that knocks down and combos off
        her jumping punches. Is usable from a front/backstep. Athena will rebound
        back if this hits or is blocked. You can only combo after on a Counter Hit
        however.
     3. PSYCHO REFLECTOR: Reflects projectiles, including some DMs. The D version
        does more hits but is slower.
     #. In '98, some reflected projectiles do far more damage than usual. Notably
        painful examples are EX Yuri's Rai'oh Ken and Rugal's Kaiser Wave: if in 
        MAX mode and held down to do 3 hits, a reflected Kaiser Wave does 50% 
        damage! Not every reflected projectile does increased damage however: a 
        returned Haoh Shokou Ken SDM does slightly less damage.
     4. PHOENIX ARROW: B does 3 hits, while D does 5, with the last hit being a
        knockdown kick. For the D version, Athena will turn around and perform the
        last kick if opponent managed to get behind her during the move.
     5. PSYCHIC TELEPORT: Teleport move, has no invincibility, but has no recovery
        time either, so Athena can attack immediately upon stopping. (D) goes 
        further than B.
     6. PSYCHO SWORD: Both versions now do 7 hits and the same amount of damage,
        though C goes higher. Either will combo from light attacks.
     7. SUPER PSYCHIC THROW: Juggles opponent upon hitting. This will only damage
        opponent upon them landing, so if you juggle after, you will only get
        damage from whatever move you followed this with. This will combo from a
        single light attack only.
     8. PSYCHO BALL REVOLUTION: New DM, Athena launches a larger version of the
        Psycho Ball, which can combo off her Super Psychic Throw. Both versions
        travel slowly and weave up and down during flight (the C version weaves
        more). Athena is pushed backwards slightly when the projectile is thrown,
        and can move shortly after. Getting hit will cause the projectile to
        disappear, and the move's damage is pretty poor.
     9. SHINING CRYSTAL BIT: Both DM and SDM versions can negate normal and DM 
        projectiles, but the DM version is dependant on the crystal's orbit when
        used against low projectiles. The ground version can hit low. You can 
        cancel this move by pressing ABCD if you didn't use the Crystal Shoot.
        It is possible for the DM version to do 2 hits on a Counter Hit. This
        starts up faster now, like in KOF'2000 onwards.
     #. The SDM version is immune to Orochi's Harae when the crystals are orbiting
        at Athena's chest level, but neither move will negate each other, and she
        can be hit halfway if the crystal orbits away before the discs go past 
        her. This has no immunity against the Oomiwa however.
    10. CRYSTAL SHOOT: When used from a ground Shining Crystal Bit, A version 
        flies straight forward while C goes forward then diagonally upward.
        Aerial versions flies downward a little then forward. SDM version will
        negate (S)DM projectiles, while the DM version negates normal projectiles.
    11. PHOENIX FANG ARROW: When done too high or low, the move may not combo 
        after the initial Phoenix Arrow.

     1. KOBOKUSHU: Overhead palm strike. Becomes cancelable when canceled into,
        but nothing will combo after. This is faster now.
     2. KOUSENTAI: Canceable into the Ryu Sogeki. Kensou can dodge some low 
        attacks during this.
     3. CHO KYUUDAN: Kensou crouches during this move, allowing him to duck under 
        some high attacks.
     4. RYUU SOGEKI: This can combo from a jumping A against tall characters like
        Chang or Yamazaki.
     5. RYUU RENGA: (A) goes forward, (C) goes diagonally upward and can avoid low
        attacks. Both versions knock down and will now combo from light attacks.
        The C version has autoguard shortly before the first hit.
     6. RYUU RENDA: Has no miss animation, but opponent can roll out of it before
        the first hit when used on its own. You can tap P during the C version to
        do two extra hits. The move juggles opponent.
     7. RYUU GAKUSAI: Both versions will now knock down on any hit.
     8. NIKKU MAN O KUU: Kensou eats a meat but, gaining a bit of health steadily
        in the process. He chokes halfway during the SDM version. Unlike in '98 
        however, he will only lose half the health he gained when he chokes, and
        he gains significantly more health at a faster pace than the DM version.
        Kensou is vulnerable throughout the entire move's duration.
     9. SENKI HAKKEI: Unblockable short-ranged attack. Opponent can roll out of
        it before the first hit if launched on it own..
    10. SHINRYUU SEIOH REKKYAKU: Unlike later KOF games, this is NOT an overhead.
        The move is aimed forward and will now combo from light attacks.
    11. SHINRYUU TENBU KYAKU: This version is aimed diagonally upward, and will
        also combo from light attacks now.
     #. The SDM version for both 'Shinryuu' moves have the same animation and
        starts with Kensou going diagonally upwards like the Tenbu Kyaku before
        performing two multi-hit Ryuu Gakusai.

     #. Chin has a lower jump ceiling than the other characters.
     #. You can increase the damage of the Gou Inshu by mashing the buttons 
        rapidly.
     #. The 2nd hit of Chin's close D is an overhead.
     1. SUIHO HYOTAN GEKI: Overhead, unless canceled into. You can now combo into
        this, but the move is cancelable either way.
     2. KISUI SHUU: Chin spits wine diagonally upwards. Neither version can be
        chained into. A is faster to launch, while C lasts longer.
     3. HYOTAN GEKI: A does one hit, C does 2. Both negate normal projectiles.
     4. RYUURIN HOURAI: A does 6 hits, C does 9. Chin has autoguard while stepping
        forward during the C version.
     5. KAITEN-TEKI KUUTOTSU KEN: Chin can roll under high attacks and mid-level
        projectiles during this move, with the D version going further.
     6. SUIKAN KANOU: Chin sways drunkenly, during which he is immune to high and
        mid-level attacks. You may cancel this by pressing ABCD.
     7. CHOUSHUU RIKUGYO: Chin leaps forward with a knockdown slam. This is NOT an
        overhead. Does 2 hits up close.
     8. BOGETSU SUI: Chin lies down, during which he can avoid high and mid-level
        attacks. You can move him around or cancel this with ABCD.
     9. RYUDA HANYO: Chin leaps forward with a knockdown kick. This move can
        avoid low attacks.
    10. RIGYO HANYO: Chin rolls backwards with a knockdown kick.
    11. GOEN SHORAI: (C) does more hits, goes further and does slightly more 
        damage than (A) for the DM version. SDM is identical for both versions.
        Chin's entire body can hit during the move, and opponent will take damage
        on contact, even if they were behind him.
    12. GOEN ENPO: A version is aimed diagonally upward, C goes forward. SDM
        version changes directions automatically. The move can negate normal and
        DM projectiles. DM versions hit twice on Counter hit. Both versions can
        negate floor-level projectiles, but not as the (A) version is ending.
        This can hit up to 5 times against Ralf's Galactica Phantom SDM, though
        any hit after the 2nd will do far less damage (and you risk instant KO if
        he manages to hit you!).
    13. DAIKYUU INSHUU: New unblockable throw DM. SDM version dizzies opponent but
        does less damage. The animation is identical to his Gou Inshu throw mashed
        to 10 hits.
    14. SENTORI SUIHO: New DM, Chin walks forward slowly, ramming into opponent
        and walking forward slowly before taunting at the end. This can OTG in the
        corner but does pathetic damage, is pretty slow and has no invincibility
        throughout. The SDM version is identical to the DM version in appearance
        and does no extra damage. This is really little more than a taunt.

     #. Chizuru has a very low profile during her crouching D, and can dodge some
        mid-level attacks with it.
     #. It's possible for an opponent to crouch under Chizuru's close C.
     1. ZHENG ZHENG: Overhead slap. Is cancelable when canceled into.
     2. CANG CANG: A cancelable forward kick. You can't combo into this, but
        Chizuru can avoid some low attacks as she hops forward.
     3. CONG CONG: A low sliding kick. Combos from light attacks.
     4. TAMAYURA NO SHITSUNE: A knockdown swipe that reflects projectiles 
        (including some DMs). C version is not chainable, but is an overhead and
        Chizuru is immune to non-throw attacks as she spins before stepping 
        forward with the swipe. A recovers faster now.
     5. TENJIN NO KOTOWARI: The A version is an illusion and only does one hit now
        , though it still hits twice when blocked or on a Counter Hit.
     6. SHINSOKO NO NORITO: The A/B versions are illusions, while C/D has Chizuru
        performing the attack herself. The P version is an upward, knockdown swipe
        that juggles while K version is a forward no-recovery swipe. The Tenzui
        followup requires you to use a Punch button if you used the A/C versions,
        and a Kick button if you used the B/D versions. This is faster to launch 
        now. By default, no version can hit opponent directly next to Chizuru, 
        even at the corner. However, you can press the same button used to have
        her perform the atttack earlier, allowing you to combo it from hard 
        attacks (the B version will miss in the open, all other versions will
        combo). 
     7. TENZUI: Can be performed regardless of whether the Shinsoku no Norito hits
        or not. The light version is a jumping swipe that knocks down, but does
        not combo from the K Shinsoku no Norito (it will miss against crouching
        opponents. The hard version is an overhead, no-recovery swipe that combos
        from any Shinsoku no Norito. You need to use the same attack type as you
        did for the Shinsoku no Norito, meaning you need to use the A/C versions
        if you performed the Shinsoku no Norito from a Punch button.
     8. CHOUMON NO ISSHIN: Chizuru hops forward with a downward swipe. This is NOT
        an overhead. The P versions are illusions while the C/D versions travel
        further. Chizuru can dodge low attacks during this move. This is faster
        now. As with the Shinsoku no Norito, you can press the same button used
        to have Chizuru attack earlier, allowing you to combo into any version
        from hard attacks or a canceled Zheng Zheng.
     9. REIGI NO ISHIZUE: Cannot be reversed. C version cannot be chained into but
        Chizuru is invincible while stepping forward. If this hits, opponent 
        cannot use any command, special or DM moves until the purple glow wears 
        off. The move's effect will not take place if Chizuru traded hits with
        opponent, though they still take damage. The A version will now combo off
        light attacks or the (A) Shinsoku no Norito in the corner (works with the
        SDM as well). The effect lasts for approximately 6 counts of the timer.
    10. SANRAI NO FUJIN: Chizuru can move freely while her illusion is attacking,
        but may only use basic attacks. This will not get full hits if opponent is
        near/at the corner. The DM version's duration is shorter now.

     #. Mai can triangle jump.
     1. DAIRIN FUSHA OTOSHI: Move is not recoverable if it hits an opponent in 
        mid-air. Can be canceled into a Musasabi no Mai (Kuuchuu) or the Hou'ou
        no Mai, and is usable during a back/front step. This is NOT an overhead.
     2. KOKU'EN NO MAI: Overhead kick, cannot be chained into. It's difficult,
        but possible to follow this with a standing A or a far C in the corner. If
        canceled into, the Musasabi no Mai (Kuuchuu) will combo after.
     3. BENITSURU NO MAI: 1st hit always hit low, and 2nd hit always knocks down.
        This combos off light attacks, but the 1st hit is not cancelable when
        canceled into unlike in later KOF versions.
     4. RYU ENBU: Negates normal projectiles and cannot be reversed.
     5. HAKURO NO MAI: A does 3 hits, C does 5. Both versions knock down and combo
        from hard attacks.
     6. MUSASABI NO MAI (Kuuchuu): This move can be used during a backstep.
     7. 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, she will simply drop
        back down.
     9. HISSATSU SHINOBI BACHI: Does 2 hits up close, though the D version can
        still hit twice at about half-screen distance if opponent was in the
        corner. Mai can dodge some low attacks once she leaps forward with the 
        elbow attack. If the roll at the start hits opponent from behind 
        (possible only if they tried to roll past her), the move will do 3 hits
        instead.
    10. HISHOU RYUU'EN JIN: This move cannot be reversed and will negate normal
        projectiles.
    11. MIZUDORI NO MAI: Each fan during the DM version is treated as a normal
        projectile and will clash with other normal projectiles. The SDM version
        can negate normal projectiles, but both versions will still lose against
        DM projectiles. This launches faster now, and there is less gap between 
        the 2nd and 3rd fans, making it more likely to get full hits against an
        opponent in mid-air.
    12. HOU'OU NO MAI: Does more hits against a mid-air opponent. Can now be done
        in mid-air.
    13. CHOU HISSATSU SHINOBI BACHI: Mai's entire body can hit once she is ablaze,
        and she is immune to low attacks once she leaps forward with the elbow
        attack.

     #. King's crouching B is now cancelable.
     #. King can dodge some low attacks (not floor level projectiles though)
        during her standing CD.
     1. SLIDING KICK: A low slide kick that can go under high attacks and mid
        level projectiles. This is now cancelable, but the cancel timings when
        canceled into and used standalone are different.
     2. VENOM STRIKE: B version dissipates at about 60% screen distance, while
        D disappears at nearly full screen range. The D version travels faster
        now.
     3. DOUBLE STRIKE: Neither hit will go full-screen for the B version, while
        only the 2nd hit can do so for the D version.
     4. MIRAGE KICK: (C) now knocks down. This can combo from light attacks.
     5. TORNADO KICK: B does 4, D does 6 hits. Both versions travel diagonally
        upward (with D going further and at a shallower angle) and are immune to
        low attacks.
     6. SURPRISE ROSE: Can hit on the way up or down, although it may not do full
        hits unless the entire move hits an opponent on the ground. The A version
        dives at a steeper angle, and may not get full hits in combos unless at
        the corner, although either version will hit properly when canceled from
        the first hit of her standing D.
     7. TRAP SHOT: This will now combo easier from light attacks. If chained from
        hard attacks, it may not hit reliably unless used from the first hit of 
        her close D.
     8. ILLUSION DANCE: B is faster while D goes higher and can hit from 
        full-screen distance. King will now jump forward directly without the
        backward flip for the B version DM (SDM is unchanged), which allows it to
        combo from hard attacks or the Sliding Kick. The D and SDM versions are
        now invincible as King leaps forward, like in later KOF games.
     9. SILENT FLASH: Now combos from light attacks. If the initial flip traded 
        hits with an opponent, and King wasn't knocked down or pushed out of 
        range, she recovers faster than her opponent, and can combo after with
        another attack.

     1. DORA YUP CHAGI: Combos from hard attacks and is cancelable into the Hishou
        and Hou'ou Kyaku (the Hishou Kyaku won't hit however). Kim is immune to
        low attacks during this move.
     2. NERI CHAGI: Overhead kick, won't combo from normal attacks. If canceled
        into, becomes cancelable on the 2nd hit.
     3. HISHOU KYAKU: Usable from a front/back step, though it won't hit. D does
        more hits and dives at a slightly shallower angle.
     4. HAKI KYAKU: The D version can now hit a floored opponent. Both versions hit
        low, cannot be reversed and negate floor-level projectiles. As with '98, 
        you can dash in with another attack if the B version hits up close, or 
        cancel it into the Hou'ou Kyaku.
     5. HANGETSU ZAN: Either version will now knock down.
     6. SANREN GEKI: The A version's third input ends with the Neri Chagi (which
        combos from the earlier inputs and remains an overhead, but is a 
        no-recovery knockdown), while the C version ends with a single-hit Kuu 
        Sajin. Either version combos from light attacks.
     7. RYUUSEI RAKU: The 1st hit is a low attack, while the 2nd is not 
        recoverable. The 2nd hit for the D version is NOT an overhead.
     8. KUU SAJIN: A does 2 hits, C does 3 and goes higher/further. Both versions
        combo from light attacks.
     9. HIEN ZAN: The B version will now always knock down. The Tenshou Zan can 
        only be used to follow-up the D version, and is NOT an overhead. 
    10. HOU'OU TENBU KYAKU: Kim is invincible during the startup flash.
    11. HOU'OU KYAKU: If blocked, Kim will perform several hits which do chipping
        damage. This move can be done in mid-air. Kim is immune to low physical
        attacks during either version.

     1. HIKI NIGE: Low slide attack; knocks down. Chainable from hard attacks.
     2. TEKKYUU DAI KAITEN: the ball negates normal/DM projectiles. Does 2 hits on 
        a Counter hit and combos from light attacks. (A) spins 5 times while (C) 
        10 times. You can move back and forth during this move and can cancel it
        anytime by pressing ABCD. This move cannot be reversed.
     3. TEKKYUU FUNSAI GEKI: C version is slower than A, but goes further. Both
        versions have autoguard before Chang attacks. The swinging ball during the
        C version can hit an opponent who is trying to jump over Chang. This
        cannot be reversed.
     4. TEKKYUU HIEN ZAN: The falling attack is an overhead if Chang's entire body
        lands on oppnent, but not if only his feet connect. This can hit on the
        way up or down, but not both ways.
     5. TEKKYUU DAI BOUSOU: Chang is invincible during the startup pose. The final
        attack is determined randomly. SDM version Guard Crushes a blocking 
        opponent.
     6. TEKKYUU DAI ASSATSU (DM): The falling attack is an overhead. Chang dashes
        forward a little before launching for the C version, during which he has 
        autoguard against high and mid-level attacks.
     7. TEKKYUU DAI ASSATSU (SDM): The falling attack hits low and works like 
        Goro's Jirai Shin, meaning it can hit at any range if opponent wasn't
        crouching or jumping even if they were not in contact with Chang's body. 
     #. The Tekkyuu Dai Assatsu (all versions) will now hit twice, though it will
        do far more damage on a Counter Hit. Both hits for the DM version have 
        been altered to connect in mid-air, unlike the SDM version where the 2nd
        hit occurs upon landing and can be recovery rolled from after the first
        hit connects.

     #. Choi can triangle jump. He has a higher jump ceiling than most characters.
     #. You can increase the damage of the Zujou Sashi by mashing the buttons
        rapidly.
     #. Choi has no far standing D animation.
     #. Choi's jumping A and CD has difficulty hitting most standing opponents
        unless they were very tall.
     1. NIDAN ZAN: Choi rolls forward, then performs 2 slashes. Either hit is
        cancelable, but the 2nd knocks down.
     2. TOORIMA GERI: If it hits, you can follow up with his far standing A/B or 
        Hou'ou Kyaku. Choi can avoid low attacks during this move.
     3. KAITEN HIEN ZAN: Only combos off the 1st hit of the Nidan Zan. If blocked,
        the A version lands Choi behind opponent. You may only use the Kishuu Hien
        Zuki before this hits. If this hits or was blocked, you can now perform the
        Hishou Kyaku after he rebounds off.
     4. HISHOU SHISSOU ZAN: Choi runs forward then leaps with a knockdown slash.
        You can now cancel this into the Hishou Kyaku if it hits or is blocked.
     5. TATSUMAKI SHIPPUU ZAN: The C version will now do full hits in the open.
     6. HISHOU KUURETSU ZAN: The direction you use will determine where Choi jumps
        with ub being the wall behind him, u being the nearest wall and uf being
        the opposite wall. You have to hold the K button used to attack, or Choi
        will land when he reaches the wall. B version goes diagonally downward,
        while D flies straight forward. Can followup with the Houkou Tenkan. If
        Choi can't reach the wall, he will drop down without attacking.
     7. SENPUU HIEN ZASHI: Similar to the Hishou Kuuretsu Zan, but Choi doesn't
        jump to the wall first. Both versions go straight forward and can followup
        with the Houkou Tenkan.
     8. HOUKOU TENKAN: Usable from Hishou Kuuretsu Zan or Senpuu Hien Zashi. Choi
        will fly in the direction motioned and attack. Can juggle if it hits a
        jumping opponent. You can vary the direction between hits but If you perform
        the motions too quickly, this move won't hit as Choi will keep rolling in 
        mid-air before he can stab out. This can be performed up to 3 times in a 
        row, regardless of whether you hit or not. Any of the hits juggles a
        mid-air opponent, and if Choi lands before opponent, it's possible to
        followup with another attack, or with itself.
     9. SHIN! CHOUZETSU TATSUMAKI SENPUU ZAN: Choi can negate normal and DM
        projectiles during this move, though certain (S)DM projectiles can hit him
        out of this. (C) lasts longer for the DM version. The SDM version travels
        faster and juggles opponent: you can hit up to three times before it ends.
        Some projectile (S)DMs, such as Joe's Screw Upper or the SDM Haoh Shokou
        Ken can hit Choi out of this. Choi can still be hit with physical attacks
        during startup even when the tornado is forming, and is only protected
        when you can move him.
    10. HOU'OU KYAKU: This can combo from light attacks or after the Toorima Geri.

     #. Yashiro can link his close standing A with a close standing C/D. The 
        timing is very strict however.
     1. REGRET BASH: When used on its own, it is an overhead that knocks down with
        no recovery possible. Becomes cancelable when canceled into. This can now
        hit a floored opponent, so you can perform this twice in a row if it hit
        when done on its own.
     2. STEP SIDE KICK: Forward kick: pushes an opponent back slightly, so if 
        comboed into, the Upper Duel won't connect. This move is cancelable.
     3. UPPER DUEL: Looks like an anti-air, but will only trigger if opponent is
        near Yashiro. Has autoguard before the first hit. A version combos from 
        light attacks.
     4. JET COUNTER: The C version is an overhead and cannot be chained into.
     5. JET COUNTER: STILL: The C version knocks down. If you motioned qcf+C
        after the (A) Jet Counter, Yashiro performs a different punch that
        juggles opponent, but you can't follow-up unless you Quick MAX it.
     6. MIGHTY MISSILE BASH: A does 2 hits, C does 4. Both will combo from hard
        attacks. You can Quick MAX this to juggle opponent, making it useful as
        a setup for the Final Impact.
     7. SLEDGEHAMMER: Overhead, no-recovery bash. Yashiro can jump over attacks
        with this if timed well. Neither version can be chained into, and the
        D version goes higher and further.
     8. FINAL IMPACT: is unblockable when fully charged. SDM version is faster to 
        charge. Has three charge levels, indicated by Yashiro's arm going higher
        per level. Move can combo from his A attacks but not a close standing B.
     9. MILLION BASH STREAM: Tap P repeatedly to increase the number of hits the 
        move does.

     #. Shermie's far C is faster now.
     #. Shermie can avoid low attacks with a well-timed standing CD.
     1. SHERMIE STAND: The 2nd hit is an overhead. If canceled into, the 2nd hit
        is cancelable instead, but nothing will combo after.
     2. SHERMIE SHOOT: Ranged unblockable throw. Shermie is immune to low physical
        attacks during the dash. This can combo from her hard attacks.
     3. SHERMIE WHIP: Can grab standing or jumping opponents. Move has long
        recovery time if it misses. This move cannot be reversed.
     4. AXLE SPINNING KICK: An overhead kick that cannot be chained into. (D) 
        version goes higher than B version. Both versions have invincibility at 
        the beginning, but Shermie is vulnerable as she kicks.
     5. SHERMIE CLUTCH: Anti-air throw, cannot hit standing or crouching opponents
        and D version goes higher than B.
     6. SHERMIE CUTE: Followup attack for (*) marked moves. May miss when used at
        corners.
     7. SHERMIE CARNIVAL: Shermie is immune to physical attacks during the startup
        flash.
     8. SHERMIE FLASH: Range is shorter than the Shermie Carnival, but it launches
        instantly. During the SDM version, opponent can mash the buttons 
        repeatedly to break the hold sooner, while you have to mash to keep
        opponent pinned.

     1. SPINNING ARRAY: Cancelable punch. Can combo from light attacks. 
     2. REVERSE ANCHOR KICK: Overhead on the 2nd hit, unless canceled into, which
        makes it cancelable instead.Can be chained into, but special moves will
        only combo if you canceled this from a single light attack. This recovers
        slightly slower now.
     3. CARRY OFF KICK: A low sliding kick. Chris can go under mid-level 
        projectiles with this. It recovers slightly slower now.
     3. SLIDE TOUCH: C version does more damage, but is not chainable.
     4. SCRAMBLE DASH: Teleport move, does not hit. Chris is immune to non-throw
        attacks for a very short time at the start of the dash. The D version has
        Chris jumping midway and is immune to low attacks until he lands.
     5. GLIDING STOMP: Overhead move, knocks down. Can be canceled from a jumping
        C or CD, but it won't combo even on a Counter hit. B version has a steeper
        diving angle.
     6. SHOOTING DANCER THRUST: A version hits low on the 2nd hit, C version is a
        mid-level attack. The A version will now knock down on the 2nd hit.
     7. SHOOTING DANCER STEP: Both versions knock down on the 2nd hit, which is an
        overhead and cannot be recovered from. However, 2nd hit won't combo unless
        the 1st hit Counter hits a mid-air opponent. You can perform a Gliding 
        Stomp after the 2nd hit, but it won't combo. 
     8. DIRECTION CHANGE: Unblockable command throw, does no damage, but switches
        sides with an opponent and leaves them stunned. This tends to miss if
        canceled into from a hard attack, though a crouching or far C at certain
        distance can link into the C version.
     9. CHAIN SLIDE TOUCH: C version is chainable only from the 1st hit of his far
        standing C or a standalone Spinning Array. The SDM version is NOT a
        projectile despite its looks and can still be reversed.

     #. Yamazaki's jumping C is aimed upward, meaning it'll miss most crouching
        opponents.
     1. BUSSASHI: Overhead attack, does 2 hits. If canceled into, either hit is
        cancelable. The move will only get one hit when canceled from a hard 
        attack, and won't chain from light buttons.
     2. HEBI TSUKAI: A version is aimed upward, will only get one hit against
        standing opponents (will miss crouching opponents). B version goes 
        straight forward while C version hits low. All versions cannot be reversed
        but delaying the move has no effect on it damage.
     3. HEBI DAMASHI: Cancels the Hebi Tsukai if it is being delayed. Can use 
        together with Hebi Tsukai by motioning qcb+A/B/C+D to gain Power gauge
        without attacking.
     4. SABAKI NO AIKUCHI: A version does 2 hits, C version 4. Both will knock
        down.
     5. YAKIIRE: Move is an overhead, no-recovery knockdown on the 2nd hit.
     6. SUNAKAKE: Can be canceled into the Hebi Tsukai.  
     7. BAI GAESHI: A version absorbs enemy projectile and gains some stock, while
        C version has Yamazaki launching a projectile of his own, which negates
        normal projectiles. Can be used against some DM projectiles. This can hit
        by itself and does 2 hits when used standalone, and one hit when chained 
        into. Combos from light attacks.
     8. SADOMAZO: Reversal move, can counter jumping,high and medium level 
        attacks, including special moves/DMs. The counterattack may miss when
        triggered against very high jumping or cross-up attacks.
     9. GUILLOTINE: Can hit a jumping opponent, though the downward grab may miss
        if they were high up. The grab can still hit if the initial punch misses
        or is blocked, and can cross-up a crouching opponent up close.
    10. DRILL: Tap P repeatedly (using both A and C) after Yamazaki throws his
        opponent to increase the damage and change the attack animation. Yamazaki
        will taunt his opponent if you tap P as he's finishing the move.
     #. To tell between the Drill's charge levels, watch Yamazaki's pose as he
        is shaking while opponent is lying down after the initial 2 hits. He will
        lean backwards once per level up until level 3. At level 3, he will spread
        his arms to the side. There is no indicator for reaching level 4, so just
        keep tapping P until you see Yamazaki lower his arm. Yamazaki's face gets
        more maniacal at each level as well, so you know he's at level 3 when he
        starts drooling. :)

     #. Both of Mary's basic throws switch sides with opponent.
     #. Mary's far D can avoid some low attacks, but not floor-level projectiles.
     1. HAMMER ARCH: Overhead punch; becomes cancelable when canceled into.
     2. DOUBLE ROLLING: The 2nd kick hits low. You can't cancel this, unlike in
        later KOF.
     3. CLIMBING ARROW: An upward aimed kick that knocks back. Combos from light
        attacks only.
     4. M. SPIDER: An unblockable ranged grab. Mary is immune to low attacks.
     5. REAL BACKDROP: Switches sides with opponent, and combos off light attacks.
     6. SPIN FALL: Is NOT an overhead, unlike more recent KOF versions.
     7. REVERSE FACELOCK: Reversal move, counters jumping or high level normal and
        command attacks, or high/mid-level physical special moves/(S)DMs.
     8. HEAD BUSTER: Reversal move, counters mid/low level normal/command attacks
        or low specials/(S)DMs. This juggles opponent.
     9. VERTICAL ARROW: Anti-air kick, D goes higher than B version. The M.
        Snatcher can grab a mid-air opponent if they were nearby even if the 
        Vertical Arrow misses.
    10. STRAIGHT SLICER: Low hitting kick, can follow with the Crab Clutch if it
        hits. D goes full-screen, but launches slower. The B version will now 
        combo from light attacks. The Crab Clutch switches sides with opponent.
    11. DYNAMITE SWING: The D version goes higher and further. The grab may miss
        even if the initial knee strike connects if opponent was too high or far
        away.

     #. You can increase the damage of the Jigoku Otoshi by mashing the buttons
        rapidly.
     #. Billy's crouching D has been reworked, and he only does the staff sweep
        without the kick at the beginning. It is much faster however.
     #. Billy's staff is considered part of his body, and hitting it will damage
        him, even if Billy wasn't directly hit.
     1. DAI KAITEN GERI: Will combo from light attacks and can avoid low attacks.
     2. BOUTAKA TOBIGERI: A vaulting forward kick that cannot be chained into. 
        Overhead, knocks down and can avoid low attacks.
     3. SENPUU KON: Hits multiple times, and negates normal projectiles. Does more
        hits and damage if opponent tries to roll past Billy.
     4. SHUUTEN RENPA KON: Does not negate normal projectiles, unlike the Senpuu
        Kon. Each hit will push opponent back, so only a maximum of 6 hits will
        connect.
     5. SANSETSU KON: If move hits or is blocked, can followup with the Kaen 
        Sansetsu: Chuudan Zuki. This move is NOT a projectile, and will not clash
        with projectiles.
     6. SEN'EN SAKKON: Billy jumps and spins his staff. Both versions knock down,
        and can avoid low attacks, with (C) doing 2 hits.
     7. KYOUSHUU HISHOU KON: Both versions chain from hard attacks, and (D) 
        juggles in the corner. You can move Billy in mid-air to change his landing
        position. Both versions will do more hits in MAX mode, but the (D) version
        can no longer be chained into. Strangely, the D version cannot juggle with
        the SDM Chou Kaen Senpuu Kon if used on its own: you have to cancel into
        it even though it doesn't combo for the SDM to connect.
     8. KARYUU TSUIGEKI KON: Reversal move, counters jumping/mid-air attacks,
        and physical specials/DMs. Even when triggered, opponent may still be able
        to hit Billy before his counterattack connects.
     9. SUIRYUU TSUIGEKI KON: Reversal, counters standing and crouching normal or
        command attacks. The trigger animation may not get full hits against an
        opponent at a distance.
    10. CHOU KAEN SENPUU KON: The flames negate normal and some DM projectiles.
        (A) is faster to launch and can catch opponent in the corner after the (D)
        Kyoushuu Hishou Kon. The C version has further range for the projectile 
        Billy throws at the end, which cannot be reflected and is a DM projectile.
        The SDM version's projectile negates some DM projectiles and travels full
        screen.
    11. DAI SENPUU: Billy can avoid low attacks at the start of this move, when he
        jumps.

     #. Iori's crouching D must be blocked low, but is treated as a mid-level
        attack. This means reversals that work against mid-level normal attacks 
        can counter it, like Yamazaki's Sadomazo. It can also hit moves with
        low-level invincibility, like Kyo's (A) Orochi Nagi.
     1. YUMEBIKI: Either hit is cancelable. This combos from light attacks. If
        done from a hard attack, the 2nd hit will miss.
     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. Usable during his backstep.
     4. AOI HANA: A version is faster and chains from light attacks, while C goes
        further. The 2nd hit knocks down, while the 3rd hit is an overhead and 
        cannot be recovered from. The first two inputs now have longer recovery 
        time if blocked or missed, but can be Quick MAXed, and doing so on the 2nd
        input will juggle opponent.
     5. ONIYAKI: A version does one hit, C does 3. Both versions knock down. The
        A version now has shorter range, but hits twice on Counter Hit.
     6. TSUMAGUSHI: Either version cancels into the Aoi Hana. This cannot be 
        chained into, but can avoid low attacks.
     7. KUZUKAZE: Unblockable throw. Does no damage, but switches sides and leaves
        opponent vulnerable momentarily. This launches faster now and combos from
        a single light attack, but opponent recovers slightly faster as well
        (though not as quickly as in KOF'XI).
     8. YA OTOME: Iori is immune to non-throw attacks during the startup flash,
        and against high/mid level attacks during the dash. The DM version can now
        be recovery rolled from. You can now combo into the SDM version, which is
        fully invincible during the startup flash.
     9. YA SAKAZUKI: Opponent cannot move or perform any actions if hit by this,
        but can mash the buttons repeatedly to escape quicker. The DM version now
        immobilizes opponent for a shorter amount of time and only deals damage
        once upon hitting. The SDM version can negate some DM projectiles and
        opponent will take minor, but gradual damage while immobilized until they
        escape or was hit. You cannot use the Yami Barai, or repeat this move 
        while opponent is immobilized, and the Kuzukaze will miss. I could be 
        wrong, but the move seems to be slightly faster now.

     #. Mature has no far standing A and B animations.
     1. CREMATORY: A forward 2-hit kick (which later became her 2k2 far B). This
        is not cancelable, but combos from light attacks. 
     2. DEATH ROW: A version is faster while C goes further. The 3rd input knocks
        down.
     3. SACRILEGE: A is faster while C version goes higher and further. Both
        versions are chainable from light attacks. This will now knock down, like
        in 2k2. A does 5 hits, C does 6.
     4. DESPAIR: Launches faster now. The C version can cross-up at certain
        distances against a crouching opponent.
     5. METAL MASSACRE: Only chains from hard attacks.
     6. DEICIDE: Blockable throw move, cannot be reversed. The B version will now
        juggle opponent, but will not switch sides and does less damage. Neither
        version will hit oppponent directly in front of Mature, nor can they be
        chained into.
     7. NOCTURNAL LIGHTS: Chainable from light attacks. Mature will stop after 4
        attacks if the move is blocked or misses.
     8. HEAVEN'S GATE: Only chainable from hard attacks. This move cannot be
        reversed. The SDM version now has shimmering blood skull effects as she
        is dragging opponent to the corner, except these will not damage opponent
        unlike the lightning pillars during her KOF'96 SDM.

     #. Vice has no far standing A.
     1. MONSTROSITY: Overhead attack. Becomes cancelable when canceled into. The
        move has pretty short range: it's possible it to miss if your close C/D
        wasn't done right next to opponent.
     2. BLACKEND: Combos from light attacks only. Can follow with Mithan's Robe.
        Vice is immune to physical attacks during part of the grab animation.
     3. DEICIDE: The B version is chainable from hard attacks or a canceled 
        Monstrosity. This switches sides with opponent, but note that it will
        not hit on its own if opponent was directly in front of Vice.
     4. MAYHEM: C version goes slightly further but is chainable only with hard
        attacks. Either version can be followed with the Mithan's Robe if it hits
        or is blocked.
     5. OUTRAGE: D version goes further, but is slower. B version is chainable
        from light attacks. You can now cancel this, and it no longer pushes
        opponent back, so it can do up to 10 hits.
     6. RAVENOUS: This can juggle if it hits opponent in mid-air at the corner.
        The move does more hits on opponent in mid-air.
     7. GORE FEST: Short ranged unblockable throw. Combos from hard attacks.
     8. MITHAN'S ROBE: Air throw, usable if the Blackend or Mayhem connects or
        if the Mayhem is blocked.
     9. WITHERING SURFACE: Long-ranged unblockable throw. Vice jumps higher for
        the A version while C and SDM versions go further. This can go past low
        attacks.
    10. DYING FETUS: New anti-air throw DM. Vice starts with a Mithan's Robe, and
        performs a Withering Surface upon hitting.

     #. Heidern's Guard Cancel Blowback Attack now has a different animation.
     #. Heidern's close C is now cancelable on the 1st hit, allowing you to combo
        into the Final Bringer in the open. The Storm Bringer will combo as well.
     #. Heidern's far D is much faster now, but has shorter range as he no longer
        steps forward and turns before performing the kick.
     #. Both the Neck Roller and Final Bringer will have Heidern leap toward's
        opponent's location, so any button version can reach opponent from any
        distance, provided they don't move out of the way or block, of course.
     1. STEINER'S KNUCKLES: The 2nd hit is an overhead, unless canceled into, 
        which makes it cancelable on the 1st hit instead.
     2. CROSS CUTTER: Launches slightly faster now. Certain characters can crouch
        under the projectile.
     3. MOON SLASHER: Either version combos off light attacks. C goes slightly
        forward. The C version does ridiculously high damage on a Counter Hit.
     4. NECK ROLLER: If blocked, the B version will land Heidern behind opponent. 
        This cannot be reversed.
     5. STORM BRINGER: Mash the buttons repeatedly to increase the amount of 
        health Heidern drains (and regains). Opponent can do the same to end the
        move quicker. Certain characters can crouch under this. This will combo
        from a single light attack, or the 1st hit of his close C.
     6. KILL BRINGER: Reversal move, counters jumping and mid-level normal and
        command attacks. Heidern can only reverse attacks when his hand is 
        outstretched, but before it is fully unclenched. This launches much 
        faster now, making it more likely to reverse an attack. Both button 
        versions are also identical now. As with the Storm Bringer, either player
        can mash the buttons to affect the amount of health Heidern drains.
     7. FINAL BRINGER: If blocked, the A version will land Heidern behind 
        opponent. This cannot be reversed. You can combo this off the 2nd hit of
        his close C in the corner.
     8. HEIDERN END: Launches faster and the B version will now combo from light
        attacks. This cannot be reversed. Since Heidern is so tall, this move can
        hit opponent in mid-air. The D version is slower, but Heidern dashes 
        forward slightly before stabbing forward.

     1. ONI GURUMA: Is a no-recovery knockdown when used on its own. Will not
        knock down when canceled into and becomes cancelable instead. This combos
        from light attacks.
     2. KAWARA WARI: Overhead knee strike. Becomes cancelable when canceled into.
        This combos from light attacks, though only the Ko'oh Ken, Haoh Shikou Ken
        and Ryuko Ranbu will combo after. The move will not combo from hard
        attacks in MAX mode.
     3. ZANRETSU KEN: Both version do equal damage, but C stays out longer while
        starting slightly slower. If any of the punches connect, opponent will 
        take full hits. This combos off the (D) Hien Shippu Kyaku or a close C.
     4. MOH KOH BURAI GAN: Takuma has autoguard on his arm as he punches. This can
        now reflect projectiles, and Guard Crushes a blocking opponent. The A 
        version will combo from a single light attack, except when in MAX mode.
     5. HIEN SHIPPUU KYAKU: The B version knocks down while (D) juggles opponent.
        Takuma can go past low attacks and floor-level projectiles during this.
     6. SHORAN KYAKU: Ranged unblockable throw. Takuma is immune to low physical
        attacks during the dash.
     7. SHIN KISHIN GEKI: This is now a throw move with a miss animation, meaning
        it cannot be rolled away from at the start when used on its own, and 
        Takuma will not perform the punches if this misses.
     8. HAOH SHIKOU KEN: This is now a DM and launches much faster. It can combo

        into Takuma's SDM version, unlike Ryo, Robert and Yuri's. You can no 
        longer delay the move.

     #. Saisyu's far standing C is cancelable into specials/DMs, but only his
        (S)DMs will chain. 
     #. If you cancel Saisyu's close C on the 2nd hit into the Gou Tsui, only his
        (S)DMs will combo.
     1. GOU TSUI: An overhead punch, unless canceled into, which makes it 
        cancelable. Unlike in '98 canceling into this from the 1st hit of his 
        close C will now do more damage than 2 hits from his close C.    
     2. KUBU TSUCHI: You can followup after this hits with the Oniyaki. You can't
        combo into this move however.
     3. HOMURAGASANE: The flames from either hit can negate normal projectiles.
        The 2nd hit will now juggle. You can Quick Max either hit as a setup for
        his DMs.
     4. ONIYAKI: A version does one hit, C version 2 hits and goes higher. Either
        version will hit twice on a Counter Hit.
     5. KAMUKAKARI: The 1st hit is an overhead. This cannot be chained into, but
        Saisyu is immune to low attacks. For some weird reason, Blue Mary's Head
        Buster can reverse this move (when it's only supposed to reverse normal
        and command attacks).
     6. NATAGURUMA: (B) does 2 hits and chains from light attacks, D version does
        3 hits. The last hit hit is an overhead, no-recovery knockdown. This can
        cross-up when used up close.  
     7. OROCHI NAGI: A version is immune to most low attacks, C/SDM versions are 
        immune to mid/high attacks. The immunity begins while Saisyu is holding
        his flaming hands, and lasts while the move is being delayed. Saisyu is   
        vulnerable as he slides forward to attack. The flame wave can destroy 
        normal/DM projectiles and cannot be negated. The move can combo from the 
        (A) Yami Barai if it hit at a distance. If the DM version Counter Hits
        in the corner, you can follow up with the Oniyaki or a standing A/C.
     8. TSUMUGARI: Saisyu will stop at the first hit if it misses. If the last
        hit of the DM version does Counter damage (possible only if opponent was
        trying to counterattack), you can followup with the Oniyaki. This will now
        combo from light attacks.

     #. You can increase the damage of D!'s throws by mashing the buttons rapidly.
     #. D!'s diagonal jumping B is aimed downward, making it useful as a cross-up.
     #. D!'s crouching D is now cancelable.
     #. D!'s jumping D is aimed forward and cannot hit a crouching opponent.
     #. D!'s crouching B pushes back more in MAX mode, so you get less hits from 
        tapping it repeatedly.
     1. ROCK CRUSH: An overhead punch, unless canceled into, which makes it 
        cancelable.
     2. R.S.D.: This will now knock down. C version is slower, but does 3 hits and
        goes slightly further. When Shadowed, D! will perform this twice, but only
        if it hits or is blocked.
     3. DUCKING COMBINATION: D! is immune to non-throw attacks as he warps
        forward. When Shadowed, it does 3 hits to knock down, and the 2nd input
        must be entered on the first hit. Neither version will combo from normals,
        and the C version travels further, but is slower to start.
     4. DUCKING COMBINATION (2nd input): (A) is an overhead, no-recovery knockdown
        (is recoverable when Shadowed), while the C version is a a low knockdown 
        that combos from the 1st input. When Shadowed, D! ends the A version with 
        an R.S.D., and a Blast Upper for (C).
     5. DANCING BEAT: The first hit Guard Crushes opponent, so the remaining
        punches will hit. This can be avoided by rolling during the start when 
        used on its own, and the subsequent hits are blockable. When Shadowed,
        this juggles opponent. Opponent will be juggled higher when D! is in
        MAX mode, allowing the D. Magnum to combo after.
     6. BLAST UPPER: Negates normal projectiles. B version combos from light
        attacks, while D! steps forward a little for the D version. When 
        Shadowed, D! performs this twice, though it won't get both hits in on a
        mid-air opponent.
     7. SOUL FLOWER: Negates normal projectiles and can hit opponent trying to
        roll past D!. When Shadowed, the 'blast' occurs twice and both hits can
        connect against a mid-air opponent. In the corner and with the D. Shadow
        activated, the move will juggle if done after a Quick MAXed Dancing Beat.
     8. SHADOW: Does not hit, but improves D!'s other special moves for one use.
        When D! uses a special move, a Throw Escape or is hit, the Shadow effect
        will end. Repeating the command allows this to hit, with the last hit
        knocking down.
     9. D. MAGNUM: The projectile cannot be negated, though it doesn't clash with
        other projectiles either. Delaying the move does not affect its damage or
        make it unblockable however.
    10. D. CRAZY: D! is invincible during the startup flash until the first hit.
        He will perform the entire move regardless of whether it hit or not.
    11. D. SHADOW: New move, does not hit, but D!'s specials are automatically
        Shadowed for a period of time, and getting hit will not remove its effect.
        SDM version lasts longer. While the the move's effects are active, there
        will be an afterimage trailing behind Heavy D! during all his actions.

     #. You can increase the damage of the Lucky Crush by mashing the buttons
        rapidly.
     #. Lucky's close D is now cancelable.
     #. Lucky's jumping CD is cancelable into the Death Dunk, but he will land
        before the basketball can launch.
     1. DUNK OTOSHI: A no-recovery knockdown punch.
     2. LUCKY KICK: A high kick, combos from hard attacks. This is no longer 
        cancelable on its own, but is an overhead instead. Becomes cancelable
        when canceled into, but only the (C) Hell Bound will combo after, and 
        only when near/at the corner.
     3. DEATH BOUND: The C version travels at a slightly shallower angle than A 
        (both travel diagonally upward). When canceled into in the corner, Lucky
        will do a knockdown punch instead which is cancelable into another special
        move (the Hell Bound can combo after as well).
     4. DEATH DUNK: Lucky jumps forward further for the C version (which has
        a different animation from the A version). You can now perform this in
        mid-air. Lucky can jump past most low and mid-level attacks during this,
        and the basketball can now hit a floored opponent. The A version travels
        in a loose V shape, while the C version now has Lucky throw the basketball
        straight down, which bounces vertically with very little forward range.
        Lucky will jump backward after throwing the basketball for the aerial
        versions. You can perform the aerial version from a hop or backstep, but
        the basketball won't have time to launch (meaning you have to be jumping
        to get the basketball out).
     5. DEATH SHOOT: Lucky hops (which can avoid low attacks) and tosses a 
        basketball. Where the basketball lands is determined by the button used,
        with A being directly in front of Lucky and D at the opposite corner.
        It's possible to follow up with another attack if the basketball hits.
        If canceled into in the corner, Lucky will do a knockdown kick during 
        the hop instead, which is an overhead.
     6. LUCKY VISION: (B) is immune to mid and high level attacks, while (D) is
        immune to low-level attacks and floor-level projectiles during the dash. 
        D goes further than B. The invincibility period for this move is far 
        longer than most other moves: Lucky gains the appropriate immunity from
        the start of the dash until he stops.
     7. CYCLONE BREAK: Does more hits against opponent in mid-air. You can link
        this into the Lucky Driver if it hits opponent on the ground, though the
        timing is very strict.
     8. DEATH HEEL: If both hits connect, this cannot be recovery rolled from. The
        D version works differently now, and Lucky does several spins on the 
        ground like during the Lucky Driver before performing the actual jumping
        kicks. Either version will now combo from light attacks.
     9. HELL BOUND: A is faster, while Lucky steps forward slightly further for 
        the C version. SDM versions are identical. This negates normal and any
        negatable (S)DM projectiles.
    10. LUCKY DRIVER: This is now a short-ranged unblockable throw move and Lucky
        will not perform the move's entire animation if it misses. This also means
        you can no longer combo this off the Lucky Kick.

     #. Neither of Brian's throws will switch sides with opponent.
     #. Brian's far C is no longer cancelable, but is now an overhead.
     #. Brian's sweep is now cancelable.
     #. You can now cancel Brian's jumping A into a Buster Tomahawk and/or Screw
        Body Press, though they can only connect on a Counter Hit against a 
        mid-air opponent.
     1. BUSTER TOMAHAWK: An overhead bash that becomes a no-recovery knockdown
        if it hits opponent in mid-air. Usable during a front/back step. It is
        now cancelable into the Screw Body Press when canceled from a jumping A.
     2. SCREW BODY PRESS: Usable during a front/back step. Either version can 
        cross-up when used at certain height and distance. C does more hits than
        A version. 
     3. BRIAN TORNADO: A does 3 hits, C does 5. Both versions knock down and go
        past low attacks/floor-level projectiles.
     4. HYPER TACKLE: Brian has autoguard when he rears back, before he charges.
        Both versions now juggle opponent upon hitting (the Galaxy Cyclone and
        Big Bang Tackle can combo after), and the B version can now be chained
        into from hard attacks.
     5. ROCKET TACKLE: (D) has autoguard on Brian's shoulder just before he jumps.
        Both versions can combo from light attacks and (D) will now knock down.
     6. BRIAN HAMMER: The 2nd hit is a no-recovery knockdown. The Double Hammer or
        Tiger Driver must be performed on the 1st hit, and can only be done if
        the move hits or is blocked. The D.D.T and Tiger Driver will miss if this
        was blocked, and you cannot perform the Samurai Bomb or Shoulder
        Backbreaker unless the Tiger Driver hits. This combos from either standing
        hard attack, but the followups may miss if you canceled from the 2nd hit of
        his close C or a close D.
     7. AMERICAN SUPERNOVA: Anti-air throw, does not hit opponent on the ground at
        all. Brian is now invincible as he leaps. C version jumps higher. For some
        reason, this can't connect from his Hyper Tackle juggle. 
     8. GALAXY CYCLONE: New DM, Brian performs a very fast, single hit version of
        the Brian Tornado. This negates normal projectiles but Brian will stop
        directly in front of opponent if blocked. The (A) DM version does not
        travel full-screen.
     9. BIG BANG TACKLE: Negates normal and single-hit DM projectiles (Rugal's
        charged Kaiser Wave will hit). All 3 tackles do the same amount of damage,
        but once any of them hit, the subsequent tackles will do far less damage.
        The move has strange properties: a tackle may hit once against some 
        characters (like Ryo), and twice against others to do significantly more
        damage, although generally it does 2 hits up close. This can combo off 
        light attacks. Despite the energy glow around Brian, this move can be
        reversed.
     #. Interestingly, the move can now 3 get hits against some characters (try
        Benimaru) on the first tackle. It only deals slightly more damage when
        compared with the huge difference between a tackle doing one or two hits.
    
        Default P1 macro: C (1 hit) > Brian Hammer > Tiger Driver > Shoulder
        Backbreaker > Buster & Bomb
    
        Default P2 macro: D > (B) Hyper Tackle > d+D (will miss) > Galaxy Cyclone
        (will miss) *
    
        * Yes, Brian's Player 2 macro combo is invalid and mistimed so that the
          Galaxy Cyclone will miss.

     1. RAIKOU MAWASHI GERI: An overhead kick. You can't combo into it, but
        Geese can go past some low physical attacks during this.
     2. RAIMEI GOUHA NAGE: New move (sort of). This can only be done when opponent
        is knocked down and Geese has to be standing over opponent's torso for it
        to launch. Switches sides with opponent. This has a miss animation.
     3. REPPUU/DOUBLE REPPUU KEN: Short range projectile(s) that combo from light
        attacks. Both knock down and both hits of the Double Reppu Ken will now
        connect in combos unlike in '96, though the 2nd hit can still miss. Either
        hit can absorb normal projectiles.
     4. SHIPPUU KEN: Negates normal projectiles, but does not travel out of the
        screen.
     5. JAEI KEN: Geese will perform all 3 hits if this is blocked, but stops at
        the initial hit if it misses altogether. Only the A version can be chained
        into, and only from hard atttacks. You can Quick MAX the C version in the
        corner to juggle opponent.
     6. HISHOU NICHIRIN ZAN: Either hit knocks down, and the 2nd hit is not
        reversible. A is faster and combos off light attacks while C goes higher
        and further. This will juggle in the corner if you Quick MAX the 2nd hit.
     7. JOUDAN ATEMI NAGE: Counters jumping normals, and any high or mid-level
        physical specials/DMs.
     8. CHUUDAN ATEMI NAGE: Counters mid-level normal and command attacks only.
     9. GEDAN ATEMI NAGE: New move (to '96 Geese anyway). Counters low-level
        attacks, including special moves/DMs. This has a different trigger 
        animation from his other two reversals: he does an upward aimed punch
        that juggles opponent. The Deadly Rave is an easy follow-up.
    10. RISING STORM: Negates normal and some (S)DM projectiles, but has no
        invincibility. The 'cage' effect is different from the one in '96: it now
        (somewhat) resembles the one from the original Real Bout Fatal Fury. If
        this hits late (when the cage is about to fade), the move will juggle.
        The SDM version is red in colour. This can combo from light attacks.
     #. As with previous games, you can also perform the Rising Storm by motioning 
        hcb,hcb,df+P. The input is very lax in '98UM, so motioning hcb 3 times
        works as well.
    11. DEADLY RAVE: New move (sort of: the animation was in '96, but the move was
        never implemented into the game). This is now an autocombo and Geese will
        stop at the initial shoulder charge if blocked. Either version combos off
        light attacks, and the C version travels full-screen.

     1. BLITZ BALL: P versions are high fireballs that can be crouched under,
        while K versions are thrown at leg level, but does not hit low. Krauser
        can move shortly after the A/B versions are launched.
     #. You cannot perform the Kaiser Wave while a Blitz Ball is on-screen (the
        Phoenix Throw will launch instead).
     2. LEG TOMAHAWK: An arcing jump kick. Is now an overhead, and juggles 
        opponent. Does 2 hits on a mid-air opponent and can go past low and some
        mid-level attacks.
     3. KAISER KICK: A jumping drop kick that can go past low and some mid-level
        attacks. D goes further, but both versions combo from hard attacks.
     4. KAISER DUAL SOBAT: 2-hit knockdown kick. B version is now done on the
        spot and combos off light attacks, while Krauser hops forward during the
        D version. The 2nd hit can be canceled into another special move, and if
        you Quick MAX it, the Kaiser Wave or Unlimited Desire can combo after.
        The B version knocks opponent back, but does not knock down.
     #. The command for the Kaiser Dual Sobat and Kick version Blitz Ball overlap
        each other, so you will need to motion it accurately or you'll get the
        Blitz Ball instead. Alternately, you can motion d,b,db to launch the move.
     5. PHOENIX THROW: Krauser's reversal from RBFF2: he grabs opponent and slams
        them down with flames. This reverses jumping normal or command attacks,
        or high and mid-level special moves/(S)DMs.
     6. KAISER SUPLEX: Krauser is immune to physical attacks during part of the
        grab animation. Now has a miss animation. This move will combo from light
        attacks only.
     7. LIFT UP BLOW: New command throw, Krauser tosses opponent up, then catches
        them with a flaming punch. This launches faster than the Kaiser Suplex but
        has no invinciblity. Move switches sides with opponent. Unlike the Kaiser
        Suplex, this combos from both light and hard attacks.
     8. KAISER WAVE: Launches faster than in '96, and can now be delayed to 
        increase its damage. The DM version will negate other negatable DM 
        projectiles like the Haoh Shokou Ken and clash with the SDM version. The
        SDM version will defeat any reflectable SDM projectile. The projectile 
        animation is the one from RBFF and covers a larger area than the '96 
        version. Note that Krauser's version cannot hit an opponent directly in
        front of him, unlike Rugal's. Surprisingly, the projectile's hit area is
        smaller than it looks, and it is possible to high jump past the move 
        (though it's not recommended to actually do so!).
     #. The (C) Kaiser Wave is fast enough to combo from the A/B Blitz Ball if it
        hits at a distance. Since you cannot have both projectiles on-screen at
        once, you have to wait for the Blitz Ball to actually hit first before you
        can launch the Kaiser Wave.
     9. UNLIMITED DESIRE: New autocombo DM. Krauser ends the DM version with a 
        flaming Leg Tomahawk, which juggles opponent in the corner. He is immune
        to physical attacks during the startup flash. This can combo from light 
        attacks.
    10. GIGANTIC CYCLONE: Krauser's P. Power special from RBFF Special: he 
        surrounds himself with a tornado as it does multiple hits on opponent. No,
        it isn't a typo, the command is indeed hcb 3 times. The SDM version's
        tornado is amber coloured.

     #. Mr. Big's crouching D now serves as his sweep like everyone else's, and his
        crouching C no longer hits low.
     1. PRICK STICK: New move; Mr. Big twirls a baton, then stabs it downwards.
        This is an overhead. You can combo into this from a hard attack, but it
        is not cancelable.
     2. GROUND BLASTER: Short ranged ground level projectile that knocks down. You
        can combo the A version from a hard attack.
     3. CRAZY DRUM: Mr. Big steps forward while swinging his batons repeatedly.
        This will not knock down, unlike in NGBC or the PS2 XI. It also pushes
        opponent back pretty far, so you won't get more than 2 hits even in the
        corner.
     4. CALIFORNIAN ROMANCE: Uppercut move. (A) is performed standing still, while
        Mr. Big dashes forward before launching the uppercut for the C version.
        The A version now has autoguard and does up to 3 hits. Both versions combo
        from light attacks.
     5. CROSS DIVING: Mr. Big dives forward with his batons extended. This move
        knocks down and can avoid low attacks. The A version combos from hard
        attacks.
     6. SPINNING LANCER: Mr. Big spins while holding out his batons. D spins more
        times, goes further and knocks down. This can now reflect projectiles.
        Only the B version can be chained into.
     7. DRUM SHOT: New command throw: Mr. Big grabs opponent, then performs a
        stationary, 10-hit version of the Crazy Drum.
     8. BLASTER WAVE: Short ranged projectile similar to Benimaru's Raikou Ken.
        This can negate normal/DM projectiles, but the DM version cannot hit an
        opponent who is very close to Mr. Big and inside the range of the batons.
        The SDM version will push opponent back significantly if blocked. 
     9. RAGING SPEAR: Mr. Big lifts opponent above him and stabs his batons into
        opponent rapidly, with the SDM version finishing with him slamming
        oppoenent to the ground.

     #. Orochi Yashiro's basic attacks, throws and command attacks are the same as 
        the normal version, despite the different names.
     #. Yashiro can link his close standing A with a close standing C/D. The 
        timing is very strict however.
     1. SAKU: When used on its own, it is an overhead that knocks down with no
        recovery possible. Becomes cancelable when canceled into. This can now hit
        a floored opponent, so you can perform this twice in a row if it hits on 
        its own.
     2. KUJIKU DAICHI: Does no damage, but switches sides with opponent and leaves
        them temporarily vulnerable. C version goes further. Yashiro can jump past
        low attacks during this.
     3. NIRAGU DAICHI: Short range throw; only chainable from light attacks. The
        move will deal damage only when opponent hits the floor, but you can hit 
        opponent before they land with another attack, though the Saku cannot hit
        from this.
     4. ODORU DAICHI: Ranged throw; can combo from hard or canceled command
        attacks. Yashiro is immune to low physical attacks during the dash.
     5. HOERU DAICHI: is unblockable when fully charged. SDM version is faster to 
        charge. Has three charge levels, indicated by Yashiro's arm going higher
        per level. You can't combo into this, and the beam does not negate
        projectiles, but it cannot be negated either. This launches faster now.
     6. ARABURU DAICHI: The D version has full-screen range. B has the same range
        as the (C) Kujiku Daichi. This is much faster now.

     #. Orochi Shermie's basic attacks, throws and command attacks are the same as

     #. Orochi Shermie has no far standing A,B and D animations.
     #. You can combo Shermie's standing/crouching A into her standing B.
     #. Shermie's standing B is now cancelable on either hit.
     #. Shermie's far C is faster now.
     #. Shermie can avoid low attacks with a well-timed standing CD.
     1. KOURAI: The 2nd hit is an overhead. If canceled into, the 2nd hit is
        cancelable instead. The Yatanagi no Muchi can combo from this. The Ankoku
        Raikou Ken can combo as well, but not very reliably and the SDM version 
        will miss.
     2. MUGETSU NO RAIUN: Stationary projectile; the location depends on button
        pressed, with A being directly in front of Shermie and D being almost full
        screen range. This negates normal projectiles. If it hits, you can 
        followup if near opponent. This is faster now.
     3. YATANAGI NO MUCHI: The first hit negates normal projectiles, while Shermie
        throws out a short-ranged knockdown projectile for the 2nd hit. A version
        combos off light attacks.
     4. SHAJITSU NO ODORI: This move can avoid low attacks and cannot be reversed,
        but doesn't knock down and cannot be chained into.
     5. RAIJIN NO TSUE: Overhead, no-recovery knockdown lightning kick that cannot
        be reversed. D goes higher and will miss most standing opponents. This is
        usable during a back/front step but only combos off a Counter hit jumping
        CD in the corner.
     6. ANKOKU RAIKOU KEN: Negates normal/DM projectiles. All versions are pointed
        straight forward.
     7. SHAKUMEI, GEN'EI, SHINSHI: Is not chainable, but Shermie can avoid low
        attacks with it. DM version hits twice on a Counter hit, but both DM and
        SDM versions do massive Counter damage. This is faster now and can negate
        projectiles. If blocked, the move chips multiple times.

     #. Chris can link a standing/crouching A into a crouching C.
     #. Chris' jumping CD is now slower.
     1. MUYOU NO ONO: Cancelable punch. Can combo from light attacks. 
     2. JUKEI NO ONI: Overhead on the 2nd hit, unless canceled into, which
        makes it cancelable instead. Can be chained into from a single light or
        hard attack, but only the Kagami wo Hofuru Honoo and Ankoku Orochi Nagi
        will combo after. This recovers slightly slower now.
     3. SETSUDAN NO KOTO: A low sliding kick. Chris can go under mid-level 
        projectiles with this. This recovers slower now.
     4. TAIYOU WO IRU HONOO: This move can negate normal projectiles, but cannot
        hit from up close. If it hits, Chris can followup with another move while
        opponent is still stunned. The flames cannot be negated, so against DM
        projectiles, both will pass through each other.
     5. KAGAMI WO HOFURU HONOO: Knockdown move, Chris can avoid low attacks. The
        flames can negate normal projectiles and this cannot be reversed. C 
        version goes slightly further.
     6. TSUKI WO TSUMU HONOO: A version hits once, C version does 4 hits. (A) 
        hits twice on a Counter hit.
     7. SHISHI WO KAMU HONOO: The first hit Guard Crushes a blocking opponent,
        effectively making the remaining hits unblockable. This move can be
        followed with the (A) Tsuki wo Tsumu Honoo. This has no miss animation,
        and cannot be reversed but can be avoided by rolling before it hits.
     8. ANKOKU OROCHI NAGI: All versions are immune to mid/high attacks. The 
        immunity begins while Chris is holding up a flaming hand, and lasts while
        the move is being delayed. Chris is vulnerable as he slides forward to 
        attack. The flame wave can destroy normal/DM projectiles and cannot be 
        negated. The A version will combo from normal/command attacks), C does
        not. You can now combo into the SDM version.
     9. DAICHI O HARAU GOUKA: Negates normal and DM projectiles and cannot be
        reversed. Chris charges 3 times during the SDM version, similar to Brian
        Battler's Big Bang Tackle.

     #. The Kikou Hau, Kasumi Kiri, Ryuu Kagejin, Kotsu Hazaki Kiri and Kiritetsu
        Nami all have projectile properties and cannot be reversed, even though
        the Kasumi Kiri and Kotsu Hazaki Kiri do not clash with or negate 
        projectiles.
     1. KIKOU HAU: Eiji does a palm attack with a burst of energy that knocks
        down. C version has longer range but cannot be chained into. This is
        slower than the XI version and the A version will only combo off hard
        attacks.
     2. KAGENUI: New move; Eiji throws a kunai dart diagonally downwards. This can
        hit a floored opponent. Both button versions are identical.
     3. KASUMI KIRI: Eiji does a quick energy slash. Combos from light attacks. 
        Unlike in XI, the move cannot negate normal projectiles but it launches
        significantly faster and will now knock down.
     4. RYUU KAGEJIN: Eiji creates a crescent-shape projectile in front of him
        that reflects projectiles, including some DMs. Combos off hard attacks
        only.
     5. KAGE UTSUSHI: Eiji does a quick dash forward. B is immune to high and
        mid-level attacks, while D is immune to low attacks and goes further.
     6. KOTSU HAZAKI KIRI: Eiji dashes forward with a knockdown slash. The B 
        version will not combo from light attacks unlike in XI. D version cannot
        be chained into, but Eiji dashes faster.
     7. TENBA KYAKU: Eiji hops forward with a multi-hit kick. D goes higher and
        further. Move avoids low attacks. Unlike in XI, the move will neither
        juggle or stun opponent long enough for you to combo after unless you use
        a Quick MAX. Only the D version is chainable, and only from the 1st hit
        of his crouching D.
     8. ZANTETSU NAMI: Eiji throws a DM projectile, with the C version travelling
        faster. The move launches very quickly, though it is slower than in XI.
        Eiji will throw two projectiles during the SDM version, making for a
        nasty surprise if opponent tried to roll past the first projectile. This
        combos from light attacks.
     9. ZANTETSU KAMAKIRIKEN: Autocombo DM. Launches very quickly and combos
        from light attacks. Eiji is immune to low attacks during the dash. Note
        that the command has changed from '95. He will create a mirror image
        behind opponent that mimics his attacks during the SDM version.

     #. Kasumi is based off her KOF'96 version, not the later versions.
     #. Kasumi's crouching B is now cancelable.
     1. HIJI ATE: Her overhead elbow strike from KOF'99. Becomes cancelable when
        canceled into and combos off hard attacks, but only the (C) Futa 
        Tanagokurodan will combo after in the open, and the Morote Gaeshi won't
        connect. In the corner, the Chou Kasane Ate will combo when this is
        canceled into.
     2. KASANE ATE: Short ranged projectile that knocks down and negates normal 
        projectiles. Can be done in mid air, which is faster to launch, but
        slower to recover.
     3. TAIKUU KASANE ATE: A mid-level, diagonally upward version of the Kasane 
        Ate, similar to Todoh's version in Capcom VS SNK 2.
     4. TATSUMAKI SOUDA: Command throw that juggles opponent. Has no miss
        animation, and opponent can escape by rolling during the startup when
        used standalone.
     5. FUTA TANAGOKURODAN: New move; Kasumi steps forward with a punch (her '96
        crouching C). The followups can only be performed if this hits, and is
        her Shingan Kazura Otoshi (S)DM's trigger animation turned into a special
        move. This combos off light attacks and the 2nd input switches sides with
        opponent. Note that the followups cannot connect if the punch does not
        hit deep enough, which happens when this is chained from a canceled Hiji
        Ate.
     6. IKAZUCHI HOUKOU: Kasumi's AoF3 qcb+P move where she yells out, and a small
        blast of energy appears in front of her. This combos from hard attacks.
        You can Quick MAX from this move despite its projectile-like properties.
     7. MESSHIN MUTOU: Reversal, counters jumping, high and overhead normal and
        command attacks. Also reverses high/mid-level physical specials/DMs. This
        will now juggle opponent but does less damage than before.
     8. SASSHOU INSHUU: Reverses mid and low-level normal/command attacks only.
     9. HAKUZAN TOU: An upward-aimed punch that has autoguard. This no longer
        juggles opponent.
    10. CHOU KASANE ATE: Once launched, the waves cannot be negated even if Kasumi
        was hit. The DM version does one hit now, and only the A version can be
        chained into. The DM version's range is much shorter now, covering about
        half-screen distance. SDM version goes full-screen distance and can juggle
        at sweep distance if opponent was cornered: you can even follow with
        another Chou Kasane Ate. Delaying the move will increase its damage.
    11. KUUCHUU CHOU KASANE ATE: New move. DM version has about half-screen 
        distance.
     #. The SDM Chou Kasane Ate (both ground and air versions) will do less hits 
        and damage the further away opponent is.

     #. You can link Shingo's crouching B into a close C.
     #. Shingo's far C is faster now.
     #. Shingo's command attacks, specials and DMs all have a chance to do a
        Critical Hit, which freezes both characters (opponent in hit stun, and
        Shingo in whatever attack animation he was in) for a moment. For all of 
        their dramatic effect, I personally haven't been able to follow up any 
        Critical Hits.
     1. GOUFU "KAKKODAKE": Cancelable on the 2nd hit. Unlike in later games, you
        can't combo into this.
     2. ARAGAMI MIKANSEI: Combos from light attacks and will now knock down if
        it wasn't a Critical Hit. May miss if done from a hard attack canceled
        into the Goufu Kakkodake. On a Counter AND Critical Hit, this stuns
        opponent long enough for you to follow with another attack.
     3. DOKUGAMI MIKANSEI: Has a random chance of doing 2 hits (not necessarily a
        Critical Hit), though the first hit may miss if opponent was at a 
        distance. This cannot be recovery rolled from on a Critical Hit.
     4. ONIYAKI MIKANSEI: C version hits twice on a Counter Hit.
     5. NIE TOGI: Only the first hit is unblockable, and this can be avoided by
        rolling before it hits when used on its own. Move juggles opponent and
        can combo off light and hard attacks.
     6. SHINGO KICK: B version combos from hard attacks, while D goes further.
     7. OBORO GURUMA MIKANSEI: Both versions combo off light attacks. B does 1 hit
        while D does 3 and cannot be recovery rolled from. The D version may have
        Shingo randomly fall with an overhead attack after the 3rd kick (it won't
        connect from the kicks however).
     8. TSUKI HIJI: Is an overhead, no recovery elbow bash when used on its own. 
        It can also reverse mid and low level normal/command attacks: Shingo will
        stumble with a kick that knocks opponent down. In '98, the kick has a
        tendency to miss if opponent was at a distance. The elbow bash launches
        faster now.
     9. KAKE HOURIN: Either version combos from hard attacks and juggles opponent.
        The SDM version Guard Crushes a blocking opponent and can be canceled into
        a special move to hit them before they recover.
    10. BURNING SHINGO: This will now combo off light attacks.

     #. You can increase the damage of the Scorpion Deathlock by mashing the

     #. Rugal's Guard Cancel Blowback Attack animation has changed.
     #. During Rugal's far A, only his glove can hit. His arm cannot hit opponent.
     1. DOUBLE TOMAHAWK: The 1st kick is cancelable, while the 2nd is an overhead.
        This combos from light attacks.
     2. REPPUU KEN: The A version recovers faster now, allowing Rugal to move
        after it is thrown.
     3. KAISER WAVE: Both versions launch faster now but the move is still not
        chainable. Does up to 3 hits when fully charged. The A version launches
        much faster now , while the C version's projectile travels very quickly.
        Rugal's version will now negate normal and DM projectiles even when 
        uncharged. Against Krauser's (or his own) Kaiser Wave DM, the charge 
        levels determine its effect. If both Rugal and Krauser launch an uncharged
        or equally charged version, both Kaiser Waves will clash. Otherwise, a 
        charged version will negate an uncharged or lower charged version. This
        will always clash with Omega Rugal's thrown Gravity Smash regardless of
        charge level, though a charged version can still go through the shield.
     4. GOD PRESS: Can combo from light attacks and cannot be reversed.
     5. DARK BARRIER: Reflects projectiles, including some (S)DMs. This can also
        hit on its own and knocks down.
     7. GENOCIDE CUTTER: The B version launches very quickly, and either hit will
        now knock down. The D version has a massive hit area around Rugal once 
        he's off the ground and can now hit an opponent above him, making it far
        better than in '98.
     8. GIGANTIC PRESSURE: This move cannot be reversed. It can combo off light
        attacks.
     9. DEAD END SCREAMER: Ranged unblockable attack. Rugal jumps further with the
        D version. This move cannot be reversed, and is much faster now, though 
        you still can't combo into it.

     MOVES LOST: Power Dunk, High Angle Geyser.
    
     1. POWER WAVE: Is faster and both versions are chainable. This version will
        travel full-screen range, but can be reflected.
     2. ROUND WAVE: New move. Cannot be chained into, but hits low. This is NOT
        the KOF'99 version and has a different animation. If this hits or is
        blocked, you can cancel it into a special move (you can even use another
        Round Wave, but it won't connect) or the Power Geyser.
     3. RISING TACKLE: The command is the KOF'94/Fatal Fury motion.
     4. FIRE KICK: A low sliding kick that juggles opponent. It's still pretty
        hard to follow up the juggle however, and the only move that can hit
        reliably is the Rising Tackle. Note that in order for the Rising Tackle
        to hit, you must cancel into it as soon as Terry performs the 2nd kick
        (if done right, there won't even be a recovery animation for the move).
     5. POWER GEYSER: The geyser effect has been changed to resemble the RBFF
        version. Despite its larger appearance, the hit area is identical to the 
        regular Terry's version.

     MOVES LOST: Geki Hishou Ken, Gen'ei Shiranui, Hishou Ryuusei Ken.
    
     1. HISHOU KEN: This version is a ranged projectile. C travels faster than A.
     2. GEKIHEKI HAISUI SHOU: New to EX Andy and is based off his KOF'95 version.
        Each hit is split into a seperate input, is blockable and the last hit no
        longer juggles, but is a no-recovery knockdown instead. The first two 
        inputs recover very quickly if blocked.
     3. SHOURYUU DAN: Has a different animation (resembles the one from KOF'94. 
        Any of the hits will knock down.
     4. BAKUSHIN: Andy's hcb+C from RBFF Special. He runs up to opponent, climbs
        on them and smacks their head, then jumps off and poses as they explode.
        This is unblockable, but cannot be chained into (it will stop in front of
        opponent if canceled into).
     5. DAN DA DAN: This does 2 hits normally, but you can tap P to increase it to
        6/12 (DM/SDM) hits to increase its damage significantly. This move cannot
        be reversed.
     6. CHOU REPPA DAN: The move's effects has been changed to resemble the RBFF
        version.

     #. EX Joe has a different taunt animation from the regular version's.
     1. BAKURETSU KEN: Is the Fatal Fury/KOF'94 style animation and you can move
        Joe forward during this. Both versions now push opponent back less to
        allow for more hits, though the C version will get more hits in.
     2. BAKURETSU FINISH: Both versions are mid-level attacks that knock down. A
        does a single hit and is faster, while C does 2 hits, goes further and
        chains easier from the Bakuretsu Ken. 
     3. HURRICANE UPPER: EX Joe throws a single tornado that goes full-screen, 
        with the C version travelling faster. Each version has a different 
        animation. Unlike the normal Joe, you can combo into the C version, and
        the move can hit from up close. EX Joe's version can be reflected.
     4. PRESSURE KNEE: New move. Joe steps forward, then does a jumping knee 
        strike that knocks down. The Ougon no Fukurahagi is a flaming KOF'95
        version Ougon no Kakato that cannot be recovered from, and can only be
        performed if the Pressure Knee hits or is blocked. A version combos
        off light attacks. Despite its similar appearance to the Tiger Kick, the
        Pressure Knee is NOT an anti-air and cannot hit once Joe leaves the
        ground.
     5. THUNDER FIRE: Joe's RBFF2 P. Power Special; which is a flaming kick
        autocombo ending with an RBFF style flaming Tiger Kick (SDM ends with a
        RBFF style flaming Slash Kick). Joe will perform the entire move 
        regardless of whether it hit or not. This combos off light attacks. You 
        can combo the DM version from a hard attack canceled into the Low Kick,
        but not the SDM version (unless you used the 3-stock BD Advanced Mode
        version, or Quick MAXed the Low Kick).

     #. EX Ryo has a different pre-fight animation from the regular version's.
     1. KO'OH KEN: This version is a ranged projectile. You can perform this in
        mid-air, which can now OTG opponent.
     2. KOHOU: Has a different animation from the regular Ryo's version (he does
        it facing away from the screen instead).
     3. ZANRETSU KEN: Both versions do equal damage, but C stays out longer. If 
        any of the punches connect, opponent will take full hits. Ryo can combo 
        this off a single hard attack. This can no longer be recovery rolled from,
        thus allowing you to follow with a well-timed Kuuchuu Ko'oh Ken.
     4. HIEN SHIPPUU KYAKU: Now resembles the KOF'94 version (it even uses the
        '94 sound effects); Ryo flies forward with a kick, and does another kick
        for the D version. This version will not arc over a crouching opponent,
        and Ryo will not perform the 2nd kick if the D version misses. B combos
        from light attacks.

     1. RYUU-GEKI KEN: This version is a ranged projectile.
     2. HIEN SENPUU KYAKU: Is the KOF'94 version where Robert flies forward with
        a single kick, followed with another for the D version. Robert will not
        perform the 2nd kick if the D version misses. Ironically, the D version
        combos off light attacks, but the B version doesn't.
     3. GEN'EI KYAKU: Both versions do equal damage, but D stays out longer. If 
        any of the kicks connect, opponent will take full hits. Robert can combo 
        the B version off a single hard attack. This will now juggle opponent, but
        the timing to follow with the Ryuuga is pretty strict without a Quick MAX,
        and you can only followup near or at the corner.

     Geri, Hien Rekkou
    
     1. KO'OH KEN: This version is a ranged projectile.
     2. RAI'OH KEN: This version is a downward-angled ranged projectile and is
        now done from mid-air only. It can now hit a floored opponent. It doesn't
        matter if done from a forward or backward jump, Yuri will still fall 
        straight down after throwing the projectile.
     #. Back in '98, Yuri would take tremendous amounts of damage if she took a
        reflected Rai'oh Ken from Athena's or Rugal's reflector moves.
     3. SAIFA: A version launches faster now and combos from light attacks. C is
        slower but combos from hard attacks. Either version will now reflect
        projectiles.
     4. HYAKURETSU BINTA: Yuri's unblockable running grab > multiple slaps. She is
        immune to low physical attacks during the dash.
     5. SHIN! CHOU UPPER: If the first hit misses, Yuri performs a single hit Yuri
        Chou Upper. This combos off light attacks and does a LOT of damage. If
        chained into from a jump-in or an attack canceled late, the 2nd hit may
        miss, resulting in the move doing significantly less damage.

     MOVES LOST: Hakuro no Mai, Hishou Ryuu'en Jin, Mizudori no Mai, Hou'ou no Mai
    
     1. RYUU ENBU: EX Mai's version knocks down.
     2. SAYO CHIDORI: Fan swipe, can negate normal projectiles. Is cancelable into
        the Ryuu Enbu. The move pushes back less now, so you can combo into it and
        the Ryuu Enbu will combo after. This is much faster now, and the B version
        will combo from light attacks.
     3. KAGEROU NO MAI: New move. This is her RBFF version where Mai poses, then a
        pair of flaming mirror images appear by her side to damage and knock down
        opponent on contact. The images also negate normal projectiles.
     4. GEN'EI SHIRANUI: New move. Works similar to Andy's version, with the K
        followup being an overhead.
     5. HANA ARASHI: Can combo off light attacks and cannot be recovery rolled 
        from. You can now hold down the button to have Mai continue dashing until
        she comes in contact with opponent, or when the button is released. Unlike
        in '98, this can now do full (or nearly full) hits against a mid-air
        opponent.
     6. CHOU HISSATSU SHINOBI BACHI: EX Mai's version will now travel diagonally
        upward, working as an anti-air. The D and SDM versions will have Mai roll
        forward first like the regular Hissatsu Shinobi Bachi, while the B version
        DM has her leaping immediately with the flaming elbow strike.

     MOVES LOST: Mirage Kick, Illusion Dance, Silent Flash     
    
     1. VENOM STRIKE: EX King's version will travel full-screen. King recovers
        before the B version leaves the screen. The projectile also has a 
        different appearance.
     2. TORNADO KICK: This is the KOF'94 version where King flips forward with
        two kicks that knock down. Combos from hard attacks only. If only the
        first kick connects in the corner after a Moushuu Kyaku, you can follow
        with a Trap Shot. Certain characters can crouch under the kicks, and
        unlike in later KOF, this cannot hit until King completes her flip.
     3. MOUSHUU KYAKU: King's '94 hcb+K kick autocombo move, except this is now
        unblockable and juggles opponent. The move has no miss animation, and King
        will continue to perform the entire move if opponent managed to roll out 
        of the way before the first hit connects if used on its own. This can 
        combo off light attacks or the Sliding Kick, but can miss if chained into
        from an attack that didn't hit deep enough.
     4. SURPRISE ROSE: This version is a DM. This can hit on the way up or down,
        and King will perform an autocombo if the diving kick hits. The A version
        dives at a steeper angle, and the autocombo may miss on the way down. This
        combos off light attacks, with the SDM version having invincibility from
        startup till she lands. This will not hit opponent juggled from the 
        Moushuu Kyaku.
     5. DOUBLE STRIKE: This version is a DM and launches faster. Each Strike is
        treated as a DM projectile, so the 1st hit will clash with a DM projectile
        while the second goes on to hit. The SDM version's projectiles are larger,
        but all versions will lose out to other SDM projectiles. The SDM version
        has no difference in speed between button versions. When following up the
        Moushuu Kyaku juggle, use the D version in the open, and (B) in the corner
        for both hits of the DM version to connect.

     MOVES LOST: Sunakake, Bakudan Pachiki
    
     1. HEBI TSUKAI: EX Yamazaki's version is slower, does not combo from light
        attacks, and does only one hit. The animation resembles the RBFF version
        (his arms are thicker). The C version can OTG opponent, though it won't
        hit from up close. The delay animation is slightly different, and you 
        cannot delay the move for as long as the normal Yamazaki's, as the Daija
        will launch.
     2. DAIJA: When the Hebi Tsukai is delayed long enough, Yamazaki will release
        a 3-hit version that knocks down. All button versions are identical: he 
        does a low, then mid, and finally high Hebi Tsukai. The move is ready when
        Yamazaki says 'Ikuze' 3 times. This will juggle in the corner if all 3
        hits connect.
     3. SABAKI NO AIKUCHI: The animation has been changed to resemble the RBFF
        version: Yamazaki steps foward with a downward slash, and does another
        no-recovery slash only if the move hits. The A version combos off light
        attacks. If done near, but not at the corner, the (C) Hebi Tsukai can 
        combo after. 
     4. YAKIIRE: EX Yamazaki's will combo from light attacks and the Todome will
        combo after.
     5. BAI GAESHI: A version absorbs enemy projectile. You can repeat the command
        anytime later to launch Yamazaki's return projectile (the stored charge 
        lasts for only that round however). The C version is unchanged.
     6. TODOME: Yamazaki's OTG followup from RBFF2: he stomps on opponent twice,
        then kicks them away before laughing maniacally. Yamazaki is invincible 
        while laughing, but opponent wakes up before he recovers, so this leaves 
        him vulnerable if done at the corner. Yamazaki has to be standing over
        a floored opponent to use this.
     7. DRILL: EX Yamazaki has a level 5 version like in RBFF where he throws
        multiple Bai Gaeshi projectiles. To use it, press ABC after hitting level
        4 (he will not glow red here, unlike in RBFF). This costs an extra stock 
        to use. In Extra mode, you can only perform the level 5 version if your
        health is critical. The timing is pretty strict however, and you must
        press ABC before Yamazaki goes into Hebi Tsukai pose. You'll know you got
        it right when another DM flash appears.
     #. You can also automatically get the level 5 Drill by mashing the A,B and
        C buttons once you reach level 3. See the regular Yamazaki's notes to tell
        the difference between Drill levels.
     #. A level 5 DM is only slightly less damaging than a level 4 SDM, but the
        SDM version isn't really worth the extra stock, as it only deals about 10% 
        more damage than the lower level SDM versions. If you're using the Extra 
        Mode gauge however, you might as well go for the level 5 version each 
        time, since it can only be done when your health is critical.

     MOVES LOST: Real Backdrop, M. Reverse Facelock, M. Head Buster, Crab Clutch,
     M. Splash Rose, M. Typhoon 
    
     #. EX Mary is based off a combination of all her RBFF and KOF Maximum Impact:
        Regulation A versions.
     #. Despite the different names, the animations for the Backdrop and Double
        Clutch/Snatcher/Spider are identical to the normal Mary's equivalently
        named moves.
     1. M. SPIDER: EX Mary's version is done in mid-air: Mary will dive diagonally
        downwards with the grab. The A version dives at a shallower angle.
     2. REAL COUNTER: Mary's dodge move from RBFF/KOF'99. Does not attack, but can
        avoid non-throw attacks while she taunts. Either followup can be used
        against a nearby opponent and have identical miss animations.
     #. You can launch the Backdrop directly without getting the Real Counter 
        taunt animation first by motioning hcb,hcb,f+P. You have to be pretty 
        quick about it though. For some reason, you can't do the same using a Kick
        button to get the Facelock however. Special thanks to Carlos Quijas for
        looking into EX Mary's P1 macro to determine the exact command for the
        Backdrop.
     3. STUN FANG: Mary crouches and punches with a tazer. This cannot be used if
        the Straight Slicer was blocked, unlike in RBFF Special. In the corner,
        the Leg Press can combo after. Unlike the regular Mary's Creb Clutch, this
        does not switch sides.
     4. YOUNG DIVE: Mary jumps forward, then crashes down. This is an overhead, 
        and the B version jumps lower. The followups can be used anytime before 
        she lands, even after it hits, though Mary will land before you have time
        to launch a Reverse Kick if you waited for the B version to hit first.
     5. DANGEROUS SPIDER: Is identical to her M. Spider. Both button versions
        are identical.
     6. REVERSE KICK: A knockdown version of Mary's diagonal jumping D. This can
        combo from the D Young Dive. If Mary managed to jump behind opponent, she
        will perform this the other way instead, serving as a cross-up. Both
        button versions are identical.
     7. LEG PRESS: A quick stomp. Mary has to be standing over a knocked down
        opponent to use this, and it can miss if mistimed.
     8. M. DRIVING SMASHER: Mary's P. Power Special from the original RBFF where
        she grabs opponent and does a leaping German suplex (with the Typhoon's
        rose effect instead of the pink lightning splash from RBFF though). The
        SDM version has her performing an identical suplex on the ground first
        before performing the leaping one, and the rose is blue coloured.
     9. M. ESACALATION: Mary's P. Power Special from RBFF2. This does not hit, but
        changes the followup for the Straight Slicer to the Double Clutch, while
        giving access to the Spin Fall and Double Spider followup. When any of 
        her followups connect, you may motion d+P for the Dynamite Swing (this 
        version is a followup-only grab). Once you perform the Dynamite Swing, 
        the mode ends. Otherwise, you can use the other moves as many times as 
        you want until the Escalation's duration wears off. While the Escalation
        is active, all of Mary's actions (including basic movements) will have an
        afterimage trailing behind her. Mary has to complete the startup flash
        to enter the Escalation mode, and if hit out of it, the move's effects
        won't take place. You can combo into and out of the mode startup however.

     #. EX Billy has a different taunt animation from the regular version's.
     1. SUZUME OTOSHI: Is aimed diagonally upward, but can hit certain tall 
        opponents who are standing.
     2. KARYUU TSUIGEKI KON: New to EX Billy. This version has Billy performing
        the trigger animation (he segments his staff and does a short combo like
        in RBFF2). (B) combos off light attacks, though it may not get full hits
        when used after a jump-in followed with a hard attack.
     3. SALAMANDER STREAM: Billy's P. Power Special from RBFF2. This move cannot
        be reversed, but only the last hit can actually negate projectiles. This
        will now combo off light attacks.
     4. KUREN SATSU KON: Billy's P. Power Special from the original RBFF where he
        jumps up while spinning his staff in flames. SDM version has him tossing
        a fire wheel diagonally downwards from mid-air (like the Chou Kaen Senpuu
        Kon, but the projectile's damage is very low however). This move cannot be
        reversed.

     MOVES LOST: Gedan/Chuudan Atemi Nage, Hishou Nichirin Zan, Deadly Rave 
    
     1. REPPUU KEN: This version is a ranged projectile. Launches slower than the
        normal Geese's version but can still combo from a single light attack.
        Geese can move shortly after the projectile is thrown.
     2. DOUBLE REPPUU KEN: The 2nd hit is a ranged projectile, which is larger
        than the Reppuu Ken's version. The first hit can negate normal projectiles
        and Geese will continue to throw out the second projectile. This is slower
        to launch than the normal Geese's version, but still chainable from hard
        attacks. EX Geese's version will not knock down, but the projectile can
        hit a jumping opponent, and can serve as an anti-air if timed well.
     3. SHIPPUU KEN: This version is a ranged projectile and clashes with normal
        projectiles. The C version throws two projectiles. There is a slight delay
        before Geese throws out the projectile.
     4. JAEI KEN: EX Geese's version has flame effects on his hands, and does 2
        hits. He will perform both hits for the A version (which combos from light
        attacks) regardless of whether they hit or not. The C version has Geese
        performing a slam that switches sides (essentially the Joudan Atemi Nage's
        trigger animation) if the charge hits.
     5. CHUUDAN ATEMI UCHI: Reverses mid-level normal/command attacks like the
        Chuudan Atemi Nage, but Geese counters with a glowing punch, followed by 
        the 2nd hit of his Double Reppu Ken instead.
     6. RISING STORM: This version is the 'claw' type animation from RBFF2 and
        does not cover the area behind or directly above Geese. On the other hand,
        it covers a larger area in front of him than the normal Geese's version 
        (this version can hit from almost half-screen away). The SDM version is 
        yellow coloured.
     7. RASHOUMON: Unblockable throw; knocks opponent to the far end of the screen
        and can combo off light attacks. The SDM version has Geese performing two
        continuous Raimei Gouha Nage before performing the actual throw.

     #. ROTB Leona is not playable in the arcade version. In the PS2 version,
        she can be selected (if already unlocked) by holding Select over Leona
        and pressing an attack button.
     #. ROTB Leona's moves are identical to the regular Leona's, but she has a 
        different dashing animation, moves much faster and does more damage.
        Her attack speed is unchanged however.
     #. ROTB Leona can dash under mid-level normal projectiles.
     1. MOON SLASHER: ROTB Leona's version has significantly higher priority, and
        is far less likely to trade hits against jumping attacks compared with the
        regular Leona's in a similar situation.
     2. GRAND SABER: The B version can hit a floored opponent. Neither version
        is chainable, unlike normal Leona's.
     3. X-CALIBER: is Leona's 96/97 version where she will slash out in mid-air
        regardless of whether it hit or not. As with the normal Leona's version,
        the move cannot be reversed. This move has longer range than it looks,
        and can still hit even if Leona was hit. The move can hit past projectiles
        (even DMs), but does not negate them.
     4. I-SLASHER: ROTB Leona's version negates normal projectiles. She recovers
        faster and can move immediately after throwing out the projectile.

     #. ROTB Iori is not playable in the arcade version. In the PS2 version,
        he can be selected (if already unlocked) by holding Select over Iori
        and pressing an attack button.
     #. ROTB Iori's moves are identical to the regular Iori's, but he moves much
        faster and does more damage. His attack speed is unchanged however.
     #. ROTB Iori has a lower jump ceiling than the normal Iori, but he hops and
        jumps further. His crouching B is cancelable.
     #. ROTB Iori does not have the Tsumagushi, and his Kuzukaze command is the
        same as Iori's from '96/97.
     1. YUMEBIKI: The first hit is much faster than the regular Iori's version, so
        you have to cancel it faster as well, which makes canceling into the Ya
        Otome pretty difficult.
     2. AOI HANA: ROTB Iori's 3rd input knocks opponent further back (more so
        with the A version) than the normal Iori's version. The 1st and 2nd inputs
        have more range than regular Iori's, while the 3rd input has less.
     3. KUZUKAZE: Has no miss animation, and combos from hard attacks, unlike the
        regular Iori's. If cornered, you can combo a close C into this, then
        repeat to bring opponent out of the corner like in '97.
     4. YA OTOME: The SDM version's speed is identical to the DM version (Iori
        does not rear back and roar first, unlike the regular Iori's SDM). The
        DM version will only do damage on the last hit.
     5. YA SAKAZUKI: ROTB Iori's DM version deals gradual damage and holds
        opponent in place for the same duration as the SDM version.

     #. Omega Rugal isn't playable in the arcade version. He is available by
        default in the PS2 version and can be selected by holding Select over
        Rugal and pressing an attack button.
     1. GRAVITY SMASH: Hold down the P button to keep Rugal within the shield. The
        shield negates normal and most single hit negatable DM projectiles, and
        you can continue to throw out the projectile. The projectile clashes with
        some single hit DM projectiles. The aerial version combos off Rugal's 
        jumping hard attacks, with the projectile travelling diagonally downwards
        (A has a shallower angle than C). On a Counter Hit, the shield can either
        hit twice directly (when P is held down), or hit once and combo into the
        projectile. The C version's projectile travels faster now. You can combo
        into the shield from a close D or Double Tomahawk.
     2. VANISHING RUSH: A version combos from light attacks. The C version only
        combos off a close D or Double Tomahawk, but can hit opponent jumping or
        rolling behind him. This move cannot be reversed, but can't go past 
        projectiles, and Rugal can still be hit out of it with physical attacks
        even when he has vanished. This does loads of damage, be it hitting or 
        chipping. The C version will now juggle opponent. At the right distance
        (somewhere around your round start distance from opponent), you can even
        juggle with the (B) Genocide Cutter twice before finishing with a Gigantic
        Pressure or Destruction Omega.
     3. DARK BARRIER: Identical to the playable Rugal's version, except it does
        significantly more damage.
     4. GENOCIDE CUTTER: Omega Rugal's version does an extra kick to do 3 hits in
        total and significantly more damage than the normal Rugal's. If the 1st
        kick hits, but the second missed (such as when the B version was used
        against a jumping opponent), the move will juggle. The hit area for the
        move is modified so that the move will usually do all 3 hits against a
        jumping opponent however, so it's harder to juggle with this unless you
        set it up from a (C) Vanishing Rush.
     5. GIGANTIC PRESSURE: Omega Rugal's version does far more damage than the
        normal Rugal's, and recovers much faster if blocked.
     6. RUGAL EXECUTION: Cannot be reversed. The A version DM will now combo from
        hard attacks or a Double Tomahawk.
     7. DESTRUCTION OMEGA: Launches very quickly and can combo off light attacks.
        This can catch a juggled opponent, but you have to hit with the tip of
        Rugal's glove to connect in such a case (if used closer, it won't hit).

     #. Goenitz isn't playable in the arcade version.
     #. You can increase the damage of the Soukatsu Satsu by mashing the buttons
        rapidly.
     #. Goenitz's basic throws do far more damage than usual, making him the only
        exception to the rule of all basic throws doing the same damage in UM.
     #. Goenitz has a new jumping CD animation.
     #. Goenitz now has close animations for his A and D attacks. Strangely, his
        close A is not cancelable, but far A is.
     #. Goenitz can dodge some low attacks with his far standing D, but not
        floor-level projectiles.
     #. Goenitz can dash under most mid-level normal projectiles (not DMs though)
        during a normal dash or the Shin Kototsuki Souga, though King's (either
        version) Venom and Double Strike can hit him for some reason.
     1. URANAGI: New command attack; Goenitz doea a cancelable backhand strike.
        This can combo from light attacks.
     2. YONOKAZE: Goenitz summons a column of wind. The location depends on the
        button used, with A being directly in front of Goenitz and D being almost
        full-screen distance. This can now hit a floored opponent. Due to its size
        , the tornado can only be rolled past while running and cannot be jumped
        over. This will now clash with normal projectiles, and DMs will negate it
        to hit Goenitz.
     3. WANPYOU: Goenits gestures an arm forward, and wind slices out of it
        similar to Vice's Outrage. The A version is aimed forward, while C goes
        diagonally upward. The C version can now hit an opponent on the ground if
        they were nearby. The A version can now be chained into, and both will no
        longer push opponent away with each hit and now knocks down at the end. 
        This builds a ridiculous amount of stock upon hitting.
     4. HYOUGA: Goenitz vanishes in a gust of wind, then dashes/jumps (B/D) 
        forward. He is completely invincible as he vanishes, but is vulnerable as
        he reappears, just before he stops.
     5. SHIN KOTOTSUKI SOUGA: New move; Geonitz dashes up to opponent, claws
        them, then lifts them up by the face as a Yonokaze engulfs opponent and
        knocks them away. Does severe damage, and you can follow with a Yonokaze.
        This combos from light attacks.
     6. YAMIDOUKOKU: Goenitz grabs opponent's head with one hand, then summons a
        tornado to engulf opponent. This is unblockable and now has a miss
        animation. The SDM version's tornado is amber coloured.
     7. SHIN YA OTOME: The A version travels straight forward, while Goenitz jumps
        during the C version, which can function as an anti-air. Launches very
        quickly and can now be chained into. The A version can go under mid-level 
        projectiles once Goenitz is hunched forward, while the C version can jump
        past floor-level ones. Goenitz is fully invincible as he vanishes at the 
        start of the SDM version, but only the (A) version can be chained into, 
        and only from a single hard attack. The DM versions can combo off light 
        attacks or the Uranagi, but are vulnerable to physical attacks during the
        startup flash.

     #. Orochi has 2 win poses (he had 3 in '97), but it seems they are 
        determined randomly.
     #. Orochi isn't playable in the arcade version.
     #. Orochi has a slightly reworked pre-fight animation and Chris no longer
        appears in it.
     #. Orochi has no far animations for all of his standing attacks. All of his
        ground attacks are cancelable and empty (whiff) cancelable.
     #. Orochi now has SDM versions of his DMs, and will now benefit from being
        in MAX mode.
     #. Orochi now has a crouching animation, and new animations for his D and
        crouching attacks and MAX mode activation.
     1. HARAE: Orochi tosses several black discs forward that cannot be negated.
        Does severe damage and negates any negatable projectile in the game, 
        including (S)DMs. If it hits at a distance, Orochi recovers quick enough
        to perform the Oomiwa after. It may do less hits against a mid-air
        opponent.
     2. TADASU: Anti-projectile move. There is no visual indicator for this move,
        but if done when a projectile is very close to Orochi, he returns a 
        projectile of his own. The return projectile is fairly slow, negatable and
        does little damage, but juggles opponent. Note that this move cannot hit 
        by itself, and the return projectile won't appear if Orochi was hit. This
        cannot return multi-hitting projectiles like the Haoh Shokou Ken SDM, but
        because it recovers so quickly, you can launch this multiple times to 
        return multiple projectiles like King's Double Strike or Mai's Mizudori no
        Mai.
     #. If you canceled a hard attack into the Tadasu from up close, Orochi 
        recovers quickly enough to combo with another hard attack, as his Player 2
        macro shows.
     3. HONOSUSORI: Orochi creates a column of energy (location depends on the 
        button used, with A being closest to him and D furthest). The column 
        cannot be negated, knocks down and negates any negatable projectile in the
        game, including (S)DMs. The columns launch much faster now (the pause on
        startup is gone) and the move does more damage as well. It can also OTG
        opponent, though it requires better timing than Goenitz's Yonokaze as the
        column only appears for a brief period.
     4. UTSUSHI IWAI: Orochi points a finger forward. If it meets a physical 
        attack, a white disc appears on his fingertips and shatters, knocking down
        opponent. B is pointed forward and counters mid-level attacks only, while
        C is aimed diagonally upward and reverses special moves/DMs or jumping and
        high-level attacks. Neither version can reverse low attacks.
     5. UKEI: Orochi's old standing D animation now reworked to serve as an 
        anti-air similar to Rugal's Genocide Cutter, except Orochi does not leave
        the ground. Does severe damage on a Counter Hit. (B) combos off light
        attacks. This will knock opponent to the far end of the screen.
     6. OOMIWA: Orochi raises and crosses his arms as bright white light fills the
        screen. He is completely invincible while the light is on-screen. This can
        hit at any distance and cannot be rolled past. This launches faster than 
        in '97, with the SDM version doing more hits. The move does significantly
        less damage if it hits a mid-air or juggled opponent.
     #. The SDM Oomiwa can do 100% damage under certain circumstances. I don't 
        know what the exact conditions are, but this can happen on a Counter Hit,
        or against a rolling opponent.
     7. MARUKARE: Orochi sucks opponent in, and upon contact, stabs his hand into
        opponent, pulls out a blue ball of energy from their chest and crushes it.
        This is unblockable and cannot be rolled past, but has no invincibility.
        The SDM version has the blood skull pillar effect seen during Mature, Vice
        and Rugal's SDMs as Orochi crushes the orb.

     ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
     
     Select character colour schemes
     - Each character now has eight colour schemes; one for each attack button,
       and four new ones accessed by pressing AB, AC, BC or CD when selecting
       your character.
    
     Select win pose
     - Each normal/EX character has four win poses, and holding down an attack
       button after winning a match determines the pose you get. The Orochi Team,
       ROTB Iori and Omega Rugal have only one win pose. Orochi and ROTB Leona
       have two win poses, but Orochi's win poses are determined by random.
    
     Special intros
     - Certain versus combinations result in a different opening pose for one or
       both characters. This usually applies for team members fighting each other,
       though other combinations exist. Some combinations are:
    
       Kyo vs Iori/Benimaru/Shingo/Saisyu/Chizuru
       Benimaru vs any female character
       Iori vs Yashiro/Billy/Eiji/Chizuru/Orochi

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     VERSUS CPU NOTES
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - After facing 3 teams, you will be challenged by a sub-boss. Who you fight
       depends on your actions against the 3 teams you fought earlier.
    
       1) Rugal Bernstein: Score all 9 (S)DM KOs, and win all 3 rounds straight
          (without losing a character).
       2) Riot of The Blood Iori/Leona: Score 6-8 (S)DM KOs. You must win all 3
          rounds straight. Whether you fight Iori or Leona is determined by 
          random.
       3) Kasumi/Eiji: Score between 3-5 (S)DM KOs or fail to get the straight
          matches. Again, it's randomly determined whether you face Kasumi or 
          Eiji.
       4) Shingo: Score between 0-2 (S)DM KOs.
    
     - After the sub-boss, you will fight one more match against the CPU before
       fighting the boss team and final boss.
    
       1) Orochi Team & Orochi: Score 6 or more (S)DM KOs throughout the game. 
          You will automatically pass this criteria if you fought the Riot of 
          The Blood characters or Rugal.
       2) 96' Bosses Team & Goenitz: Score between 3-5 (S)DM KOs throughout the
          game.
       3) Iori/Oyaji/USA Sports Team & Omega Rugal: Score less than 3 (S)DM KOs
          throughout the game.
     
     - Like in '97, you will face Chris first, then Shermie, and finally Yashiro
       when fighting the Orochi Team.
     - There are no boss intro scenes, nor is there an ending after you beat the
       boss (not even Omega Rugal's intro and ending scene from '98 is shown).
     - The AI routines in '98UM are different from '98. The game AI isn't
       necessarily more difficult (it's actually pretty dumb even at highest
       setting), but most of the old patterns the CPU had in '98 are gone.
     - Unlike in '98, the CPU will fight in all 3 modes. This is determined
       randomly.
     - Omega Rugal, Goenitz and Orochi take far less damage than usual.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     GLITCHES AND BUGS
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Unblockable projectiles
     - Yes, the old '98 bug is still here. This can be done by any character who
       has a projectile and command throw (be it ranged or close, so long as it
       is unblockable and is capable of missing). Simply throw a projectile
       against a character who is waking up after a knockdown, then motion your
       command throw to make it unblockable. You can also do this with a teleport
       move if your character has one. The CPU will now exploit this bug too. :)
    
     Iori's Kuzukaze infinite
     - Iori can perform an infinite combo new to 98 UM by dashing forward with a
       a standing/crouching A after a Kuzukaze connects and repeating it, similar
       to his '96 close C > Kuzukaze infinite.
    
     Heidern's Moon Slasher glitch
     - Heidern's old Moon Slasher bug remains in UM: if you miss with a Moon
       Slasher, the next Storm/Kill/Final Bringer you perform will drain noticably
       more health than usual (assuming you didn't hit with another Moon Slasher
       before connecting with the Storm/Kill/Final Bringer, that is).
    
     Brian's Galaxy Cyclone glitch
     - Brian's Galaxy Cyclone normally chips once if blocked, but if used when
       Leona's I-Slasher is out, the move will chip far more times than usual if
       blocked, though it will still only hit once.
    
     EX Geese's Rising Storm glitch
     - If your character runs right into EX Geese as he performs a Rising Storm,
       they will push Geese away from the 'claw' and the move will not hit. In 
       the corner, Geese will remain where he is, but the Rising Storm still 
       won't hit. This works for almost every character, with the exceptions being
       Benimaru, Goro, Yuri, Kensou, Chizuru, King, Chang, Chris, Yamazaki, 
       Heidern, Heavy D!, Brian, Goenitz, Krauser and Mr. Big. You can find a
       video of this bug here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I7N0jad-j0
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     GLOSSARY
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Here is an advanced move property glossary:
    
     AIR BLOCK
     In 98, you can block in mid-air. Moves that can be air blocked are:
     - Any normal projectile.
     - Any jumping normal/command attack.
     - Any ground special move that takes the character off the ground, like Kyo's
       R.E.D Kick and 75 Shiki Kai.
    
     Moves that cannot be air blocked are:
     - Any (S)DM, including aerial ones.
     - Any anti-air throw.
     - Any standing/crouching normal/command attack, including some sweeps.
     - Special moves that do not go off the ground, like Kyo's Dokugami and
       Leona's Moon Slasher.
     - You cannot air block at the beginning of a jump/hop, and as you land.
    
     AIR THROW
     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 opponent on a lower level.
    
     AUTOGUARD
     Moves with autoguard can block incoming attacks during certain frames of 
     their animation. An example will be Kyo's Aragami as he steps forward: if
     he meets a projectile or physical attack, he will automatically block it and
     continue withe the punch. You will still take blocking damage from special
     moves however. 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. Autoguard moves can block 
     normally unblockable physical attacks like Ralf's Galactica Phantom, and you
     will not take any chipping damage from doing so.
    
     COMMAND ATTACKS
     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 it 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.
    
     COUNTER HIT
     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 ground normal 
     attacks; you can only Counter Hit an opponent performing aerial (including
     normal and CD attacks), command, special or DM moves.
    
     GUARD CRUSH
     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.
     There is no indicator for a Guard Crush in 98 UM. Some moves like Kyo's Mu
     Shiki DM and Takuma Moh Koh Burai Gan will automatically Guard Crush a
     blocking opponent.
    
     INVINCIBILITY
     Moves that have invincibility mean physical and projectile attacks will miss
     against them. Certain moves have full invincibility, while others may be only
     immune to low or high attacks. Most moves with invincibility are not immune
     to throws, though Goro's Chou Oosotogari is an exception. Physical attacks
     with invincibility can still be reversed however.
    
     MAXIMUM (MAX) MODE
     MAX mode is done by pressing ABC when you are fully charged in Extra Mode
     or have at least one stock bar in Advanced Mode. While in MAX mode, your
     character will be glowing yellow, during which they do more damage. Do note
     that in MAX mode, normal and command attacks may push opponent further back
     than usual, therefore preventing some combos that would be possible normally.
    
     PROJECTILES
     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. 
    
     Moves that classify as negatable (S)DM projectiles are:
     Athena's Psycho Ball Revolution, Ryo/Robert/Yuri's Haoh Shokou Ken, Takuma's
     Haoh Shikou Ken, Rugal/Krauser's Kaiser Wave, Billy's DM Chou Kaen Senpuu
     Kon, Yamazaki's Bai Gaeshi return projectile, EX King's Double Strike, Omega
     Rugal's Gravity Smash
    
     Some projectiles that cannot be negated are:
     Terry's Power Geyser (and the actual geyser during the High Angle Geyser),
     Joe's Screw Upper, Heavy D!'s D. Magnum, Orochi Yashiro's Hoeru Daichi and
     Orochi's Harae, Honosusori and Oomiwa.
    
     QUICK DODGE
     If you are using Extra Mode, or opt to use dodges in Ultimate mode, you can
     perform a Quick Dodge if your attack hits or is blocked. This requires stock
     unless you are in MAX mode using the Extra Mode gauge, of which it will
     reduce your remaining MAX gauge by half instead. Unlike a Quick MAX, you can
     only Quick Dodge from normal and command attacks, and only gound-based ones.
     Unlike a Quick MAX however, you are canceling whatever remaining frames of
     the move you Quick Dodged from, so this allows you to cancel normally
     uncancelable attacks like Kyo's 88 Shiki and combo after with a Dodge Attack.
    
     QUICK MAX (EXTRA GAUGE ONLY)
     If you are using Extra Mode, or the Extra gauge in Ultimate Mode, you can
     go into MAX mode instantly while attacking, allowing you to avoid the usual 
     vulnerability period from a normally activated MAX mode, while giving you
     the opportunity to extend your combo. You need to be fully charged to use the
     Quick MAX. The criteria for using the Quick MAX are:
    
     - You can only Quick MAX from physical attacks. That means no throws, 
       moves that do not hit (like dashes) or projectiles.
     - Your attack must hit or be blocked, but you can Quick MAX in mid-air.
     - You have to Quick MAX as the move connects, not anytime before or after.
       This means you cannot Quick MAX during the gap between hits for multiple
       hit moves.
     - With some physical moves that end with a throw, like EX Geese's (C) Jaei
       Ken or Kyo/Iori/Goenitz's 'Kototsuki' moves, you have to Quick MAX on the
       connecting hit, before the respective character does the throw.
     - In order to benefit from the speedier recovery, you have to Quick MAX on
       the last hit for multi-hit moves. Quick MAXing during the earlier hits have
       no effect on its recovery time.
    
     Note that unlike KOF 2002's Quick MAX activation, this version does NOT
     cancel the remaining frames of your attack animation and reset you to neutral
     stance, so you can't actually restart your combo the way you could in 2k2. 
     You do recover faster from the move you Q. MAXed with however, which can 
     allow for combo situations that wouldn't be possible normally.
     
     REVERSALS (COUNTER MOVES)
     Reversals are passive moves that do not attack on its own (though Kyo's Nue
     Tsumi and Shingo's Tsuki Hiji are exceptions). 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.
     If a reversal fails to catch an attack, which happens when done too early or 
     late or when used against the wrong type of attack, the character attempting
     the reversal will take Counter damage. Not all reversals have the same 
     timings: Blue Mary's Head Buster can reverse attacks on startup, while 
     Heidern's Kill Bringer only reverses attacks after his hand is extended. 
     Reversals are not subject to a move's invincibility or autoguard frames and
     if a reversal can counter special moves, it also works against unblockable 
     physical attacks.
    
     THROWS
     Throws cannot be reversed, and will not do Counter damage. All special throws
     cannot be escaped from, though opponent can mash the buttons during Shermie's
     SDM Shermie Flash to escape sooner. Most throws can only hit a grounded 
     opponent, and some anti-air throws can only hit a mid-air opponent. Most, but
     not all special throws cannot be recovered from if they knock down. Any
     unblockable throw move, be it close or ranged cannot be rolled past. Ranged
     unblockable throw moves are usually immune to low physical attacks (but not
     floor-level projectiles). Unlike in later games, you can Throw Escape using
     any button. Throws do not add to the hit counter in 98UM.
    
     TRIANGLE JUMP
     Athena, Mai and Choi 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.

     very impressive, although some of them are practically impossible in a normal
     match). Finally, completing Challenge Mode unlocks the 'Same Character' 
     option in 'Battle Settings. This allows you to use a character more than 
     once in your team, so you can have normal and EX versions of the same 
     character together in the same team.

     CHALLENGE 4
     Requirement: Using anyone, defeat Leona.
     Note: Leona will roll forward continuously. Basic and special throws will not
     connect.

     CHALLENGE 5
     Requirement: Using anyone, Guard Cancel Emergency Evade (AB) from Yamazaki's
     (C) Hebi Tsukai 5 times.

     Requirement: Defeat Iori using anyone.
     Note: Iori will Guard Cancel Blowback Attack (CD) your attacks. All throws
     will miss, and any other unblockable attacks are made blockable (so no
     Galactica Phantom). You have unlimited stocks.
     #. An easy way to beat this challenge is to use EX King and abuse her Double
     Strike SDM.
    
     CHALLENGE 7
     Requirement: Using Iori, combo into a command attack, then cancel into a 
     special move against Andy.
     #. Simply do a close C > f+A > qcb+C and you'll clear this challenge. Or just
     use his default macro if you're lazy. :P
    
     CHALLENGE 8
     Requirement: Using Eiji or Kasumi, defeat Yuri, Robert, Ryo and Takuma.
     Note: Yuri, Robert and Ryo are the EX versions. Your stock will carry over

                                         ROW 2
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     CHALLENGE 9
     Requirement: Using anyone, perform a hop-in combo linked into a command
     attack and a special move against Benimaru.
     #. An easy example is hop D > close C > f+A > hcb+P with Chris or Yashiro.
    
     CHALLENGE 10
     Requirement: Using anyone, Guard Crush Clark and hit him while he's stunned.
     Throws and unblockable attacks are disabled.
     #. Iori's standard combo (hop A/B/C/D > close C > f+A > qcb+P 3x) should 
     Guard Crush somewhere in between the hits after enough times.
    
     CHALLENGE 11
     Requirement: Using Kyo, score 5 Counter Hit Oniyaki (dp+P) against Ralf.
     Note: Ralf will perform his hop CD repeatedly.

     Note: An easy example is Terry's close C (2 hits) > Power Geyser.
    
     CHALLENGE 13
     Requirement: Using anyone, Quick Dodge, then Dodge Attack and cancel into a
     special against Kensou.
     Note: You don't have to combo your attack into the Dodge Attack. Here's an
     easy example with Kyo: close C > AB > Dodge Attack > qcf+C
    
     CHALLENGE 14
     Requirement: Perform a Quick MAX combo using anyone against Athena.
     #. An easy example would be qcf+D,D > Quick MAX > dp+C using Kyo.
    
     CHALLENGE 15
     Requirement: Defeat Yamazaki, Mary, Mai, Joe, Andy, Kim, Krauser, and Terry
     using Geese (either version).
     Note: Everyone except Kim and Krauser are the EX versions. Your stock will 
     carry over between battles. The timer is set at unlimited, so you must defeat
     all opponents by KO.
    
     CHALLENGE 16
     Requirement: Using anyone, perform a 50% damage combo on Ryo.
     Note: Special throws will not count (the CPU's health keeps refilling), so
     you need to use physical or projectile attacks. You have unlimited stock.
     #. An easy combo would be (MAX mode) crouching C > charge db,f+D > f,hcf+P 
     with Takuma. Or you can just charge up Orochi Yashiro's Hoeru Daichi SDM 
     (qcf,qcf+P) to complete this easily.
    
                                         ROW 3
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     CHALLENGE 17
     Requirement: Defeat Yuri using anyone.
     Note: Yuri will Guard Cancel Blowback Attack (CD) your attacks. This is 
     basically the same as challenge 6, except you don't have unlimited stocks.
     #. Like in Challenge 6, you can always use the normal King and abuse her 
     Double Strike if you're feeling lazy.
    
     CHALLENGE 18
     Requirement: Using Geese, connect 3 Rising Storms on Mai in mid-air.
     Note: You MUST hit Mai in mid-air for it to count. If Geese is hit, whiffs a
     Rising Storm, blocks an attack, hits with any other move or if the Rising 
     Storm hits Mai when she is on the ground, the counter will reset.
     #. You can always cheat and program the Rising Storm's command as a macro if
     you're having trouble getting it to launch consistently.
    
     CHALLENGE 19
     Requirement: Perform Goro's close D > df+C > hcb,hcb+P combo against Chizuru.
     #. Simply use player 2's default macro to clear this challenge automatically.
    
     CHALLENGE 20
     Requirement: Using Kyo, perform a Quick MAX into a Quick Dodge, then Dodge 
     Attack and combo into a DM against Brian.
     #. The recommended combo from the Orochinagi forums is f+B > ABC on 1st hit >
     AB on 2nd hit > Dodge Attack > qcb,hcf+C. You can also motion qcb+C for the
     Dodge Attack so you only have to motion hcf+C to launch the Orochi Nagi.
    
     CHALLENGE 21
     Requirement: Using Kyo, Iori and Chizuru, defeat Yamazaki, Mature, Vice, 
     Orochi Yashiro, Orochi Shermie, Orochi Chris, Goenitz and Orochi.
     Note: The timer is set at unlimited, so you must defeat all opponents by KO.
     Goenitz and Orochi will take normal damage equivalent to the other non-boss
     characters.
    
     CHALLENGE 22
     Requirement: Using EX Kyo, juggle King with 4 separate moves in one combo.
     #. The recommended combo from the Orochinagi forums is (in corner) qcf+D,D > 
     rdp+B > Quick MAX > qcf+B,B > dp+C
    
     CHALLENGE 23
     Requirement: Perform a 70% damage combo on Takuma. Ralf's Galatica Phantom is
     disabled. As with Challenge 16, special throws will not count towards your
     combo damage. You have unlimited stocks.
     #. The recommended combo from Orochinagi is: (using Kasumi and near the 
     corner), fully charge the SDM Chou Kasane Ate (qcf,qcf+P) > juggle with DM
     Chou Kasane Ate.
    
     CHALLENGE 24
     Requirement: Using Heavy D!, perform a 26-hit combo against Terry. You are at
     red life and have unlimited stock.
     #. The suggested combo is jump B (cross up) > d+B 6x > d+A > Quick MAX >
     qcb,hcf+P. There is also a macro available in the Orochinagi forums.
    
                                         ROW 4
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     CHALLENGE 25
     Requirement: Using EX Robert, perform a 31-hit combo against Heidern. (S)DMs
     are disabled.
     #. The combo is: (at corner) hop A/B/C > close C > f,b,f+B (Quick MAX on last
     hit) > f+B > f,b,f+B > dp+C (2 hits).
    
     CHALLENGE 26
     Requirement: Using EX Mary, perform a 7-hit combo on Saisyu.
     #. The combo is: (at corner) close C (2 hits) > f+A > AB > Dodge Attack >
     charge b,f+B > qcf+K > d,d+B. You can also start from a jump-in to end the
     combo at the Stun Fang.
    
     CHALLENGE 27
     Requirement: Using anyone, defeat Ralf before he finishes his SDM Galactica
     Phantom.
     Note: You will fail the challenge if Ralf finishes the Galactica Phantom, if
     you get KOed (even a Double KO) or if you hit him before he starts the move.
     #. I completed this challenge by using Ralf as well and performing a SDM
     Galactica Phantom before the CPU, then a close C immediately upon recovering.
     Other suggestions include performing Athena's SDM Shining Crystal Bit up
     close, or Chang's (C) Tekkyu Dai Kaiten in MAX mode.
    
     CHALLENGE 28
     Requirement: Using Ryo, Quick MAX a special move into a DM on Mr. Big.
     #. In the corner, hcb+D (Quick MAX on 3rd hit) > qcf,qcf+P.
    
     CHALLENGE 29
     Requirement: Using EX King, perform a 33 hit combo on Ryo. You have to charge
     manually, and (S)DMs are disabled.
     #. The recommended combo from Orochinagi is: (at corner) hop A/B > close D 
     (2 hits) > rdp+K > hcb+K (get only the 1st hit in) > dp+K > Quick MAX on last
     hit > dp+K.
    
     CHALLENGE 30
     Requirement: Using anyone, defeat ROTB Iori, ROTB Leona, Goenitz, Omega Rugal
     and Orochi.
     Note: The timer is set at unlimited, so you must defeat all opponents by KO.
     The bosses will take normal damage equivalent to the other characters.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     PS2 COMMAND MACROS
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     You may notice in the Options screen there is a button assigned to 'Command',
     which by default is R2. The Command button is used to activate a macro, which
     is essentially a shortcut, allowing you to perform one or more actions (or a
     combo) in a sequence without having to motion for it. To program the macro, 
     go into Practice Mode, and in the option screen, select'Command'. You will be
     taken to another screen with these options:
    
     RECORD - record your actions. You can move around freely, and when you're
     ready, press Select to begin recording, and press Start when you're done.
     While recording, press Select to cancel your recording. You can record up to
     10 seconds of data.
    
     CHECK - return you to the game so you can test your macro.
    
     SKILL - brings up a list of your character's moves.
    
     EDIT - brings you to the macro editing screen (see below).
    
     SORT - automatically sorts and arrange your actions into the timeline while
     removing redundant frame data. This is useful for cleaning up your timeline
     after recording your macro before you edit it, but keep in mind it may end
     up deleting some frame data that you want to keep, so if your recorded combo
     turned out well, you may want to skip this step.
    
     CLEAR - clear all your programmed commands.
    
     DEFAULT - resets to the default macro.
    
     EXIT - save you macro and exit.
    
     CANCEL - exit and return to Practice Mode without saving.
    
     EDITING YOUR MACRO
     In the 'EDIT' screen, you will be shown a list of commands. At the top is
     the timeline for the macro, with each block representing one frame (the game
     runs at 60 frames per second). 
    
     1. The L1 and R1 buttons and arrow keys move back/forward one block, while 
        L2 and R2 move 15 blocks at once.
     2. The directional arrows, LP/LK/SP/SK represent the movement/attack inputs.
     3. 'DEL' and 'BS' are 'Delete' and 'Backspace'.
     4 'INS' or Triangle is 'Insert'. Toggling this on will replace the frame
        action you highlighted with another action.
     5. The red button next to the 'END' option is used to input multiple
        button presses, such as LP+LK+SP to go into MAX mode. 
     6. The 'END' option returns you to the previous screen.
    
     #. The macro you programmed is character-specific, and is saved only for that
     character. Obviously, if you programmed a macro to take advantage of a
     particular mode's features (such as Quick MAXing), your macro won't execute
     with the intended results if you're using the wrong mode. 
     #. The game will automatically reverse the left/right directions when you
     switch sides, so you only need to program your macro from your initial
     perspective.
     #. The macro settings are stored separately for each player, so you will need
     to program Player 2's macros manually. Also, Player 1 and Player 2 each have
     different default macros.
    
     USING YOUR MACRO
     Once you have programmed and saved your macro, pressing the button assigned
     to 'Command' will have your character performing the programmed sequence.
     If you move the joystick or pressed a button while a macro is running, you
     will abort it. Obviously, your character must be at the right distance for
     the macro to run as intended: if you programmed a macro intended to use
     a character's close attack, then you have to be within range for the macro
     to run correctly.
    
     A more detailed explanation on using macros can be found in the Orochinagi
     KOF'98UM boards.

     KOF'98 ULTIMATE MATCH OFFICIAL SOUNDTRACK
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Below is the track listing for the '98UM OST. I can't be sure of some of the
     translations though, as my understanding of the Japanese language is very
     minimal. This is the official arcade soundtrack (OST), not the arranged
     soundtrack (AST), so most of the music in this compilation are from the 
     original MVS arcade versions of KOF'98 and other earlier games.

      (*) indicates tracks new to or recomposed for 98UM.
     
     - To get the EX teams' music tracks, all 3 team members have to be the EX
       version.
     - You won't be able to hear the EX characters tracks and special team
       combinations' themes in the arcade version unless in a versus 2P match,
       since the CPU won't fight using non-default teams or EX characters.
     - However, in a vs 2P match, the track played will be based on Player 2's
       first character, and the track will not change between characters.
