    1.0  Intro
    
         One year after the battle.  The city that had been plequed with
    crime and violence was safe and peaceful.  However, the syndicate
    destroyed by the brave vigilantes resurrects its evil power.  Mr. X,
    with revenge in his heart, he kidnapped Adam, their best friend, to
    lure them into his trap.  Knowing it's a trap, Axel and Blaze, along
    with Adam's younger brother 'Skate', make a stand to save Adam...and
    to put Dr. X out of action...
    
    
    Key

    2.0  Characters
    
    **NOTE**  A blitz attack is a characters F, F, 1 attack.  They are:
    Axel's Rishing Uppercut, Blaze's Powerflip, and Skate's Human
    Cannonball).
    
         2.1  Axel
    
      Bio:  After beating Dr. X in the first Streets of Rage, Axel is back
    to get Adam back.  This time he has more attacks and is better then
    ever.
    
    Power      **
    Technique  ***
    Speed      **
    Jump       *
    Stamina    **
    
      Attacks:  Axel's non-grabbing attacks.
    
    
         Punch to Kick Combo: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
    
         (Two jabs, a two hit straight, then a forward kick)
    
         A powerful combo that starts fast and ends strong.  Great for
    Thugs and other regular opponents.
    
    **NOTE**  The Punch to Kick Combo may also be called the PK or PK
    combo.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Lunging Knee:  2, 1 (can be delayed)
    
         (Axels jumping attack)
    
         This is the worst jumping attack in the game.  It has short range
    and you will almost always get knocked out of it.  Stick with your
    Dashing Uppercut or others attacks (unless you are fighting Jet).
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Reverse Punch:  2+1
    
         (Axel punches behind him without turning)
    
         A good attack to knock opponents down without having to turn
    around.  It doesn't yeild a lot of damage, but it will make them back
    off for a few seconds.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Dashing Uppercut:  F, F, 1  (Blitz Attack)
    
         (Axel ducks and dashes forward while rubing his fist against the
    ground therefore catching his hand on fire, and ending with an
    uppercut)
    
         Axel's best attack.  It can do a ton of damage and it is very
    hard to get knocked out of.  Axel can hit his opponent four time
    (three while dashing and once with the uppercut).  Use this attack
    against everyone.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Fire Dragon:  F, B, 1
    
         (Axel does a full 360 punch while his hand is on fire)
    
         This attack is fast and will knock everyone around you down.  It
    can also do some nice damage if you hit your opponent twice (you must
    be close to do this).
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Maniac Combo:  F+1+2
    
         (Axel starts to punch like a mad man, with his hands on fire of
    cource, then ends in a powerful Dragon Punch)
    
         This is by far the most damaging non-super attack in the game.
    It can easily kill everyone, except a few bosses, if you catch them
    with the first hit.  Watchout, if you miss or if someone is behind you
    you will be an opponent target for any kind of attack.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Omega Fireball:  1  (hold intile Axel ducks then release)
    
         (After everyone on the screen freezes, Axel will throw a huge
    fireball)
    
         This is the most powerful super in the game.  It is capable of
    taking almost everything out just about anything with one hit.
    Unfortunately this attack will knock hit everyone onscreen, only the
    people that are infront of him.
    
    
      Grabs:  Axel's grabbing attacks.
    
    
         Headbutt:  1
    
         (Axel slams his head into his opponent's head)
    
         You should never use this attack by itself because you can always
    do more damage with the two knees before it (see below).  The only
    time you should use it is when you are surrounded by opponents and you
    need to let go of your opponent really fast.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Double Knee to Headbutt: F+1, F+1, 1
    
         (Two knees to the gut then a headbutt)
    
         Axel's standard grabbing combo.  Does decent damage, but you can
    do more by throwing them after the two knees.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Hiptoss:  B+1
    
         (Axel lends back and throws his opponent over)
    
         This does not do a lot of damage, but you can hit people with it.
    This is great because you can hit or or two opponents with one of
    their friends.  This gives you time to think about your next attack or
    time to grab that health or weapon you need so bad.  If you are alone,
    then suplex then instead for more damage.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Suplex:  1  (while facing opponent's back)
    
         (Axel flips them up and slams them down and onto their back)
    
         Unfortunately this is not the same suplex as he had in the first
    game (which looked a lot cooler, but Blaze still has that one).  This
    is Axel's most damaging throw and should be used whenever you can not
    hit someone with the Hiptoss.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
    
         2.2  Blaze
    
     Bio:  Along with Axel, Blaze is back to get Adam and she also has
    some new attacks.
    
    Power      **
    Technique  **
    Speed      **
    Jump       **
    Stamina    **
    
      Attacks:  Blaze's non-grabbing attack.
    
    
         Punch to Kick Combo:  1, 1, 1, 1
    
         (two jabs, an inverted straight, then a Roundhouse)
    
         A good combo, but it isn't as strong as Axel's.  This should be
    your main offense on just about every opponent.
    
    **NOTE**  The Punch to Kick Combo may be called the PK or PK combo.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Jump Kick: 2, 1  (can be delayed)
    
         (the usual jump kick)
    
         Much better then Axel's.  Use this against everyone but the Bald
    Punks.  Great for covering a range gap but it doesn't deal a lot of
    damage.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Around-the-Clock Sweep:  1+2
    
         (Blaze does a full, 360 sweep)
    
         Great for knocking people down infront or and behind you.  But
    remember, it knocks down the people behind you first.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Power Flip:  F, F, 1  (Blitz Attack)
    
         ()
    
         This will hit opponents on the way up as well as on the way down.
    Unfortunately, you will usually get hit out of it.  Anyway, it's a fun
    attack do watch.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Back Handspring:  F, B, 1
    
         (Blaze flips backward)
    
         Not a bad attack.  It can hit people infront of and behind you.
    It's good for getting you away from multiple opponent at once.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Blue Fire:  F+1+2
    
         (Blaze gathers energy and releases a fireball that never leaves
    her hands)
    
         This can hit opponents twice, but you must be close or else the
    first will miss.  This attack is slow but powerful.  Great for taking
    slower opponents out.  Also, if you time it right, it can be good for
    taking fast opponents out.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Blue Tornado: 1  (hold until she ducks then release)
    
         (Blaze spins while jumping, making a see-through tornado)
    
         Does less damage then Axel's Super, but will hit everyone one the
    screen.  This is great because you don't have to move.
    
    
      Grabs:  Blazes grabbing attack:
    
    
         Trip:  1
    
         (Blaze does a basic trip)
    
         Does decent damage and leaves her opponent grounded.  You could
    always do more damage with the Double Knee though.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Double Knee to Trip:  F+1, F+1, 1
    
         (Blaze kness them twice then trips them)
    
         The two knees does nice damage.  After them you should flip over
    them and Suplex them for more damage.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Stomach Throw:  B+1
    
         (Ryu's Kick Throw, she falls back and launches them with her foot
    in their stomach)
    
         This is Blaze's launching throw.  Does nice damage and sends her
    opponent flying.  Not a bad throw, but you can do more damage.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Suplex:  1  (when grabbing opponents back)
    
         (Blaze does an awesome looking Suplex for the original game)
    
         This is her most damaging, and best looking throw.  Use this
    throw over her others for better results unless you can hit someone
    with the Stomach Throw.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
    
         2.3  Skate
    
      Bio:  Skate is Adam's younger brother.  He, along with Adam's best
    friends, are try to rescue Adam from Mr. X.
    
    Power      *
    Technique  **
    Speed      ***
    Jump       ***
    Stamina    *
    
      Attacks:  Skate's non-grabbing attacks.
    
    
         Punch to Flip Kick:  1, 1, 1, 1
    
         (Two jabs, a kick, then a flip kick)
    
         This doesn't deal large amounts of damage, but it is fast and
    good for using on almost everyone.
    
    **NOTE**  The Punch to Flip Kick may be called the PFK or PFK combo.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Drop Kick:  2, 1  (can be delayed)
    
         (Your basic drop kick)
    
         Possible the best jumping attack in the game.  It does good
    damage and can be delay to hit the Old Ninjas out of their slides.
    Use often, except on the Bald Punks.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Backflip:  1+2
    
         (A backflip)
    
         This is a very damaging attack if all three of the hits connect.
    Also, it hurts more if you hit you opponent while you are going back
    because the front part of the attack doesn't deal a lot of damage.
    Use this attack a lot.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Human Cannonball:  F, F, 1  (Blitz Attack)
    
         (Skate runs forward, then jumps forward head first then ends in a
    ball)
    
         It doesn't deal a lot of damage but it has a long range and it is
    hard to get hit out of.  Unfortunately it will not knock opponents
    down while Skate is stretched out.  Therefore you may hit someone and
    still be open for another attack.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Super Spin:  F, B, 1
    
         (Skate spins around on his head with his legs out)
    
         This attack is great for getting opponents away from you.  When
    you do this everyone is knocked do that is in reach.  But this attack
    doesn't deal massive damage, so don't use on a single opponent.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Spinning Death:  F+1+2
    
         (Skate jumps high into the air the spins down at a 45 degree
    angle)
    
         This attack has great range, but Skate can get hit out of it, so
    watch out.  The damage isn't too high or too low, but decent.  This
    also gets you away from opponents, but not as much as the Human
    Cannonball does.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Bouncie Ball:  1  (hold until Skate ducks then release)
    
         (Skate bounces around the sreen in a ball)
    
         This is the weakest super in the game, but it hits everyone on
    the screen, which is very good.  Also, with Skate's speed you can get
    away from opponents and usually have enough time to do this attack
    before getting hit.
    
    
      Grabs:  Skate's grabbing attacks.
    
         Elbow to the Head:  1
    
         (Elbow to the Head)
    
         Not too damaging, but does plenty.  Of cource you could do more
    damage by Headbutting them first, but you don't have to.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Double Headbutt to Elbow to the Head:  F+1, F+1, 1
    
         (Skate headbutt's hit opponents twice then hits them with his
    elbow)
    
         Does great damage, but you can still do more by throwing them at
    the end instead of headbutting them.  Overall it is a good, quick way
    to damage your opponent.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Swing Swung:  B+1
    
         (While Skate is holding his opponent, he swings his legs back
    then slams them into his opponent)
    
         This looks cool but doesn't deal a large amount of damage.  It's
    slow and does launch your opponent.  So another throw may be better,
    like the two below.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         The Flipper:  2, 1  (While Skate is above opponent's head)
    
         (When Skate is about to land he flips his opponent over him)
    
         This throw launches your opponent, but doesn't do major damage.
    This is the only throw you can use against the Demolition Droids.  By
    the way, it looks awesome.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         Omega Nugie:  1  (when grabbing opponents back)
    
         (Skate jumps onto his opponents shoulders and pops their neck
    back and forth)
    
         This is the most powerful throw in the game.  Skate will stay on
    the their shoulders for up to eight hits.  After that he will get
    down.  This is more then enough to kill most opponents.  This should
    be your main weapon against Old Ninjas and just about every boss.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
    
    
    3.0  Enemies
    
         During this section you will learn about the opponents that you
    will fight during the game.
    
         3.1  Regulars
    
              The opponents that you will fight over and over again.
    
         3.11  Thugs
    
         (The white guys with jackets and pants on)
    
         These guys are weak and are plentiful.  They come in two
    different colors:  blue and green.  The green will take more of a
    beating before leaving while the blue are the weakest opponents in the
    game that do not self-destruct.  They usually come only with their
    fists, but sometime you will see them with a weapon (a knife).
    
         Attacks:
    
         Punch - A quick punch that doesn't deal a lot of damage.
    
         Knife Charge - If they have a knife they will run at you with the
    knife infront of them.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
         3.12  Bald Punks
    
         (Black guys with their shirts off)
    
         They are more dangerous then the regular punks because they have
    more life and have more attacks.  They two come in two different
    colors, and green has more life then blue.  Like the thugs, they will
    also enter a fight with a weapon (a bar).
    
          Attacks:
    
          Punch -  Like the Punks, it is fast but deals little damage
    
          Uppercut - They will use this whenever you jump and when you get
    too close.
    
          Bar Attack - When equiped with a bar, they will swing it at you,
    dealing massive damage.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.13  Old Ninjas
    
          (White haired, old men)
    
          Despite their age, they can take a beating as well as giving
    one.  They are tough to attack because of their speed, so watchout.
    Blitz attacks work well as long as you stay grounded.  If you jump
    then they will slide, therefore knocking you out of your attack,
    unless you delay it 'til the final second (Blaze and Skate only).
    
          Attacks:
    
          Backhand - A decent punch that will leave you grounded.
    
          Slide - Fast, but can be snuffed out with a punch or well placed
    jumping attack.
    
          Throw - Yes, they can run up and throw you.  Stop them by
    hitting them.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.14  Spikers
    
          (Strong guys with spikes on them)
    
          These guys can deal a solid punch that takes off a lot of life.
    Take them out as soon as possible with your best attacks.
    
          Attack:
    
          Spike Punch - A powerful punch is all they have.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.15  Demolition Droids
    
          (Little hoping droids)
    
          Found only on level 5.  These droids will hop over to you and if
    you attack them they blow up.  The only way to defeat it is to throw
    it (Axel's Hiptoss, Blaze's Stomach Throw, Skate's Over-the-Top Throw)
    or to hit it with something.  Watchout, the explosion they create will
    almost kill Axel and Blaze, but it will kill Skate.
    
          Attack:
    
          Self-Destruct - Does massive damage so stay away.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
    
          3.2  Specials
    
          These are enemies that may be bosses/mini-bosses during the
    beginning of the game, but later on they become usuals.
    
          3.21  Knife Punk
    
          (A guy with messed up hair, with holed clothes, and a knife)
    
          This guy doesn't pose a threat.  He may attack once, at most,
    during an encounter.  Just knock him down, take his knife, and throw
    it at him.  He may still be alive so hit him with a Blitz or your
    favorite attack.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Knife Lunge:  Lunges out with his knife.
    
          Punch:  Same as Knife Lunge but without the knife.
    
          Knife Throw:  He throws the knife in a horizontal line.

          3.22  Dancer
    
          (The only women in the game)
    
          She can be annoying, especially when there are two of her.  Move
    around a lot and never attack straight on or you will get hit.  Once
    you get close pound her with you best attack(s).  When there are two
    of them use your Super for the best effect.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Whip:  She smashes you with her whip.
    
          Jump Kick:  Does a jump kick just like Blaze.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.23  Bouncer
    
          (A big white guy with a black vest on)
    
          This is the first person you will meet that can escape from your
    combos.  To deal with this use attack that will propel you forward or
    will take him down in one hit (i.e. Axel's Rushing Uppercut, Skate's
    Human Cannonball, or Blaze's Blue Fire).  Watchout, this guy is fast
    and powerful.  Another way to beat him is to just grab him.  From
    there use the Infinite Knee tactic for an easy, but boring, win.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Spin Kick:  He lunges forward and does a mean slash kick.
    
          Punch:  A powerful one handed punch.
    
          Throw:  He grabs and throws you.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.24  Ninja
    
          (A very muscular guy with his shirt off)
    
          This guy can be very tough or easy.  If he gets the first hit
    then you may loose a life because he won't let you up.  Also, when
    there are two of them use a Super. Or throw them into each other.
    This way they will both be together and they will be easier to beat.
    Use rushing attacks or throws for the maximum effect.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Jump Kick:  A powerful jump kick.
    
          Mega Slash:  Ninja slashes out with a very fast and powerful
    punch.
    
          Punch:  He just punches you.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.25  Jet
    
          (A crazy looking guy with a jetpack on)
    
          This may be Axel's hardest fight, while Skate or Blazes easiest.
    Why?  Well, Jet is always in the air (except for a few breif moments
    when he is doing an attack on the ground) and therefore you must jump
    to hit him.  Well, Axel can't really jump so you need to time
    everything to succeed.  A hint of advice, whenever you hit him you can
    jump up and get another free him, and even another if you are lucky
    (i.e. you have enough space).  Also, always move around, this makes
    you a much harder target to hit.
    
          Attacks:
    
          The Boot:  Jet flies down with his foot out.
    
          Fling Punch:  Jet gets close to the ground and flies forward
    with his fist out.
    
          Mega Slam:  Jet picks you up, flies high into the air, then
    slams you down.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.26  Knife Ninja
    
          (A guy (?) dressed in all purple with a knife)
    
          This person can teleport (or jump really high), roll, and strike
    with it's knife.  It really isn't very tough to beat.  Just hit it
    with your most powerful attack a couple times and it should be though.
    Also, when it teleports it usually lands behind you, so be ready for
    that.  And as usual, don't attack straight on, or else you might get
    hit by it's rolling attack.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Roll:  It rolls into a ball and flies forward.
    
          Knife Attack:  Slashes you with it's knife.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.27  Blanka
    
          (An animal that looks strangely like Blanka from the Street
    Fighter series)
    
          This guy can be tough, but you should always have a weapon when
    you fight him.  Slash/hit him a few times then throw your weapon.
    Know finish him off with Blitz or other non-grab attacks.  Why
    non-grab?  Well he, like some other people, can flip you off and
    therefore hurt you.  This gives Skate a big dissadvantage, buy you can
    still hit him with other attack to make up for it.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Roll:  Blanka rolls into a ball a flies across the screen, just
    like Street Fighter.
    
          Run-n-Slash:  He dashes forward and slashes you with his claws.
    
          Dragon Slash:  Basically a Dragon Punch.
    
          Anti-Grab:  When you grab him he does a flip and knocks you off.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.28  Teleporter
    
          (A reddish alien thing that can teleport and has a strange gun)
    
          Defeating this thing isn't as hard as you might think.  Just go
    to the top of the screen until you are targeted then walk down.  He
    should then miss you can you can know run over and beat him up.  Also,
    like Blanka, don't grab him.  Watchout, the gun will kill Skate with
    one shot.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Laser:  A gun that does massive damage.  He only does it after
    teleporting.
    
          The Claw:  He lashes out with a big claw.
    
          Jump Kick:  Almost like Blazes.
    
          Anti-Grab:  Slashes you when you grab him.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.29  Fat Burners
    
          (Big fat guys)
    
          Remember the boss from the forth level from the original game,
    well here are his twin(s).  They have the same attacks, but this time
    they can be thrown.  Stay out of his way when they are shooting fire
    and hit them with your most powerful attack(s) when they are out.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Bad Breath:  He runs around while shooting fire out of his
    mouth.
    
          Belly Flop:  He jumps into the air and tries to smash you with
    his stomach.
    
          Slap:  These fat guys will slap you when your close.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.210 Boxer
    
          (A really, really big, bald, white guy with boxing gloves on)
    
          DO NOT GRAB.  DO NOT GET INFRONT OF HIM.  Obay those rules and
    you should do okay.  Blitz attacks work great along with Axel's Maniac
    Combo.  He takes a lot of damage so be ready for a long fight.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Butt Buster:  He jumps forward with his legs up and tries to
    flatten you.
    
          Uppercut:  A giant, whind-up uppercut.
    
          Straight:  A straight punch with a long range.
    
          Anti-Grab:  When you grab him he punches you.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.211 Robots
    
          (Big, one armed robots with a mace on where the other arm should
    be)
    
          Do not grab them or else you will feel pain.  Also, never attack
    head on because you will be right in their sights (laser).  Blitz
    attacks work well, as do jumping attack.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Laser:  The Robot shoots a laser in a straight line.
    
          Mace Swing:  The mace swings in a giant circle.
    
          Mace Strike:  The Robot lashes out with the mace in a straight
    line.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

          3.212 Master Ninja
    
          (A tall guy that is with long hair and is dressed in all black)
    
          He can not be grabbed and he can duck out of most attacks.  To
    beat him you must use one hit attacks that does good damage or Axel's
    Rushing Uppercut.  Jumping attacks work wonders against him.  Also,
    never stay in one spot.
    
          Attacks:
    
          Lunging Fist:  He jumps at you with one fist out.
    
          Burning Slide:  He slides on the ground with a foot out that is
    on fire)
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----
    
          3.213 Mr. X
    
          (A tall guy that has on a suit and has a gun)
    
          He can not be thrown, but he can't duck out of attacks.  Use
    your most powerful attacks one him.  Jumping attacks are great as well
    as blitzing ones.  You always want to be higher up then he is because
    when he shoots, it does from forward to down.  Therefore you can stay
    above him and he'll miss or won't shoot at all.  Overall, he isn't as
    tough as the Master Ninja is.

          4.0  Weapons
    
          There are only two types of weapons in SoR2.  They are the knife
    and the bar.  They both can be thrown, unlike the first game.
    
         4.1  Knife
    
         The knife does not, in any way, do more damage then the bar, even
    when thrown.  But it is much faster then the bar, but has less range.
    You can find a knife almost everywhere, from under barrels to under a
    human.  I personally don't like to use the knife for hand-to-hand
    combat.  Instead I usually throw it at a Bald Punk or someone with a
    lot of life.
    
         Also, Thugs will, at some times, carry a knife.  When they do
    they will only have one attack option.  That option is to run into you
    with the knife out infront.  To deal with this you should meet them
    with an attack (i.e. Axel's Rushing Uppercut) to stop them (or you
    could just jump over them with Skate's Drill Kick.
    
         4.2  Bar
    
         The bar is in someways better then the knife because it deals
    much more damage, but it is much slower.  So to use the bar you must
    be smart and time the hits so you can hit them at the maximum range of
    the bar.  it also may be smart to loose the bar when multiple
    opponents are in close range.  This way you will usually take one out
    and you can put all of your effort into the other(s).
    
         Bald Punks will, at some times, carry a bar.  They can swing this
    bar and take away a nice portion of your life.  Attack them as soon as
    they appear and do not let them have a chance to use the bar.
    
    5.0  Walkthroughs
    
    **NOTE**  I will talk about the infinite knee tactic.  This is when
    you grab your opponent and knee (or in Skate's case, headbutt) your
    opponent twice, then flip over, then flip over again.  Now you will
    let go of your opponent, but you can grab them in a split second if
    you hold forward when you jump back over them.  Now repeat the process
    until they are no more.
    
    
         5.1  Axel's Walkthrough
    
         Stage 1  Act 1:
    
         Go forward and take out the two blue thugs.  Advance forward and
    you will meet another thug and an Old Ninja (ON).  Take them out with
    your maniac combo.  Now break the trachcan at the top of the screen
    and get the knife.  Use the knife on the thug that should approach
    you.  Take a few steps forward and a Thug/ON combo will approach you
    from behind.  Throw the knife at the ON then manually remove the thug.
    Once the On is gone, another will come to replace him.  After
    disposing of him, go forward and take out the thug.  Keep going and
    get the apple from under the trashcan.  Continue forward and take out
    the Bald Punk (BP) with a Dashing Uppercut.  Another will come from
    behind, then a thug from the font, and finally a BP from behind with a
    bar.  Get the bar and go forward.  Throw the bar at the BP with the
    bar.  Use the bar on the next two thugs (one has a knife).  Collect
    the gold bar form the trashcan and take out the BP with the bar.
    Continue on and take out the ON by throwing the bar and finishing him
    off with your blitz attack.  Now take out the thug and grab the bar
    from the trashcan.  Walk forward and take out the next two thugs with
    the bar and finally loose the bar on the ON who comes from the rear.
    Pick up the knife left by the thug (if possible) and continue onward
    after finishing off the ON.  Now a Thug/ON combo will come after you.
    Use the knife on the ON and then take them both out with blitz attacks
    or a Punch to Kick Combo (PK).  Now break the trashcan and grab the
    meat.  Now you will fight the Knife Punk.  Hit him with a PK combo or
    a maniac combo.  If he is still alive, throw his knife at him.
    
         Stage 1  Act 2:
    
         Go forward and take out the thug then the BP with a blitz attack.
    Now grab the gold coin from under the chair and proceed forward.
    Next, two thugs will try to double team you.  Just PK them and
    continue on.  You will meet another thug and the screen will stop
    scrolling.  Take him out and grab the knife from under the chair.
    Turn around and throw the knife at either the thug or the BP.  After
    they are gone another BP will attack from the right side of the
    screen.  Take him out with a blitz attack.  A thug/ON combo will
    attack after you move on.  Take them both out with a maniac combo.
    Continue on to meet two more Old Ninjas (if you move slowly, you will
    not have to fight both of them at once).  Break the chair and grab the
    goodies.  Now take out another thug/ON combo.  Once the thug is gone,
    another ON will attack from the left.  Now continue on and two BP will
    attack.  Now grab the apple from under the chair and take out another
    BP as he approaches.  Another BP will attack.  Go forward and a
    thug/BP combo will converge on you from both sides.  Throw one into
    the other then continue on.  You will find another mini-boss, the
    Dancer.  Take her out with a maniac combo or several blitz attacks.
    
         Stage 1  Act 3:
    
         Grab the goddies that are under the trashcans.  Now take out the
    two thugs, then the two BPs, and finally two more thugs.  You won't
    get any weapons, so PK or blitz them.  To take out the Bouncer, use
    grabss, Rushing Uppercuts, the first few hits of the PK combo, or the
    Lunging Knee for a quick knockdown.
    
         Stage 2  Act 1:
    
         Take out the knife thug and throw his knife that the next thug.
    Grab the knife from under the trashcan and use it on the walking BP.
    Next, Blitz the sitting BP then grab the goodies from under the next
    trashcan.  Take out the BP with the bar anyway you want, then grab the
    bar.  Break the last trashcan and grab the meat.  Now go forward.
    Take out the Knife Punk with you bar and blitz attack.
    
         Stage 2  Act 2:
    
         Go forward and take out the two thugs then a BP with a blitz
    attack.  Move slowly forward and take out the enemies as they appear.
    First comes a green ON.  Maniac combo him then the one that comes
    after him.  Continue on and you will find a thug then another green
    ON.  Move slowly and take out the next two ONs, one at a time.
    continue on to find your first knife ninja.  Move up to the top of the
    screen and maniac combo it.  If it lives, just blitz away.
    
         Stage 2  Act 3:
    
         Move forward and take out the thug that drops down from the top
    of the screen with a PK combo.  Now a red ON will attack.  After you
    move a little, another thug will drop down.  Continue on to meet a
    thug/ON double team.  Maniac combo the ON and the thug may run into
    it.  Go forward and a green thug will drop from the ceiling (the green
    thugs and BP take more damage then their blue versions); PK combo it.
    Another will fall and a green BP will come from the right, and another
    from the left.  Go on and you will meet a knife thug.  Keep the knife
    and use it on the ninja, along with the blitz attack or two.  Now
    blitz the next two enemies that come from the left.
    
         Stage 2  Act 4:
    
         Break the box and get the apple.  Now take out the thug with a PK
    combo and the BP with a bar via a blitz attack.  Use the bar on the
    next two thugs and a BP.  Go forward and use the bar on the two thugs
    and the two Spikers.  If you loose the bar, then just blitz everyone.
    Break the box to get an extra life.  Take out the Spikers with
    everything you can muster, then take out the thug/Spikers.  Go forward
    and take out the knife thug and grab the knife.  Continue forward and
    get an extra special from the box.  Continue forward.  When the knife
    ninja drops, throw the knife at it.  Now pick the knife up (that it
    dropped) and throw it at it.  Now blitz and you're done with the first
    one.  Go forward and grab the meat from the box.  The Knife Ninja will
    come from the right.  Maniac combo it or blitz it until its dead.  Go
    to Stage 3.
    
         Stage 3  Act 1:
    
         Go forward and take out the thug.  Now break the trashcan and
    grab the extra super.  Now take out the bar BP and the sitting thug.
    Now get the extra points from the next trashcan, take out the BP, and
    finally get the apple from the last trashcan.  Now go slowly forward.
    Stop whenever a life bar appears below yours.  Now wait until a Dancer
    to come out and either hit her with a super to kill her instantly, or
    maniac combo/blitz her to death.  Now do the same thing to the next
    one.
    
         Stage 3  Act 2:
    
         Wait for the first motorcycle to pass you, then walk up to the
    dark line between the top and middle track.  Here you will not get
    hit.  Stop when you see a giant egg thing at the top of the screen.
    Now, let all the motorcycles pass then go up, break it, and get the
    bar.  Continue forward until the motorcycles stop.  Now break the next
    purple egg to get an apple.  Continue forward and take out the green
    thug with your bar.  Do the same thing to the next two thugs.  Now you
    must fight Jet.  To defeat him you must lunging knee him several
    times.  You can, if your lucky, hit him with the last hit of the
    Dashing Uppercut or when he flies low, you can hit him with a knife or
    bar.  Now, go forward while dodging the motorcycles.  Once they pass,
    you will meet three Spikers.  Take the bar to them.  Also break the
    purple egg to get some meat.  Go forward some more, while dodging the
    motorcycles to complete this act.
    
         Stage 3  Act 3:
    
         You will find a knife thug first.  Take the knife and throw it at
    the green BP.  Now, take out the green knife thug that comes from the
    right (you may also want to get the stuff in the egg).  Use his knife
    on the green, bar BP.  Use the bar on the green thug that enters from
    the right.  Go forward and take out the green thug and BP.  Now throw
    the bar at the green, bar BP.  Now take out the knife thug (the egg
    holds a knife).  Go forward and you will meet Blanka.  Use the bar on
    him as welll as blitz attacks.  If you need it, there is some meat in
    the egg up top.  Go forward and you will meet duo of green thugs.
    Blitz them.  Now go forward carefully.  A ninja will attack.  Maniac
    combo him.  Go forward and another will attack.  Do the same thing to
    him.  If they both attack at one, super them.  Go forward and you will
    meet the Teleporter.  Stay in the upper left/right corner and whenever
    he gets a lock, walk downforward to dodge the laser.  Now PK/Maniac
    combo him.
    
         Stage 4  Act 1:
    
         A knife punk will attack right off the bat.  Use his knife on the
    next punk and get the gold coin from under the box.  Throw the knife
    at the BP that comes, then PK the thug that drops.  Now turn around
    and blitz the BP behind you.  Another guy will drop down, so PK him
    then blitz the BP that comes from the right.  Now break the box and
    get the apple.  Go forward.  Now you will face your first fat burner
    (for lack of a better name).  Just maniac combo him to death.  Now PK
    the next three thugs and grab the goodies from under the box.  Now go
    forward and blitz the ninja twice, then beat the knifed thug to the
    ground.
    
         Stage 4  Act 2:
    
         Okay, go forward and beat up the thug, then take out the BP with
    a blitz.  Now you will be confronted with a BP and a thug.  Just PK or
    blitz them both.  Use the knife you got from the last thug on the BP
    with a bar.  Now use the bar on the thug that comes from the right.
    Keep going right until you find a lone fat burner.  hit him with the
    bar, then throw the bar at him, and finally blitz him for the kill.
    Now you get to fight two fat burners.  You can fight them one at a
    time if you walk right very slowly.  Blitz or super them.  If there is
    only one, infinte knee him.  Go forward to fight the Bouncer again.
    Super him once while he is standing still, then blitz him a few times.
    
         Stage 4  Act 3:
    
         Take out the thug, grab the apple from under the box, then take
    out the knife thug.  Use the knife on the next thug and get ready to
    fight Jet again.  Use the same tactics as you used before and you
    should be fine.  Remeber, always be moving.  Go right after defeating
    him.  You now get to fight three knife ninjas in a row.  To beat them,
    either maniac combo them or PK then throw their knife back at them.
    Collect the gold coin and bar between battles.  After the third ninja,
    get the meat that is in the box.  Proceed to the boss.  It's easy to
    beat him, just super him while he's standing still, then blitz him a
    couple times.  Also, don't grab him.

    another thug/BP will come out to fight you.  Once they are gone the
    Master Ninja will fight you.  He can not be thrown and can duck out of
    attacks (like the Bouncer).  Lunging Knees and blitz attacks are
    great.  The PK can be good, but only the first three hits.  His
    attacks consist of a Jumping Fist, the Burning Slide, and a throw.
    After he is gone, Mr. X will attack.  He can't be thrown, but he can
    not back out of attacks.  Blitz, PK combo, or maniac combo should be
    your main choices.  Mr. X only has two attacks.  They are: a hit with
    the butt of the gun, and shooting the gun.  He isn't very hard to
    beat, just don't grab him and don't let up with you attacks.

    Continue on to meet a thug/ON double team.  Omega Nugie the ON and the
    thug may run into it.  Go forward and a green thug will drop from the
    ceiling (the green thugs and BP take more damage then their blue
    versions); PFK combo it.  Another will fall and a green BP will come
    from the right, and another from the left.  Go on and you will meet a
    knife thug.  Keep the knife and use it on the ninja, along with the
    blitz attack or Omega Nugie.  Now blitz the next two enemies that come
    from the left.
    
         Stage 2  Act 4:
    
         Break the box and get the apple.  Now take out the thug with a
    PFK combo or Spinning Death and the BP with a bar via a blitz attack.
    Use the bar on the next two thugs and a BP.  Go forward and use the
    bar on the two thugs and the two Spikers.  If you loose the bar, then
    just blitz everyone.  Break the box to get an extra life.  Take out
    the Spikers with everything you can muster, then take out the
    thug/Spiker tag team.  Go forward and take out the knife thug and grab
    the knife.  Continue forward and get an extra special from the box.
    Continue forward.  When the knife ninja drops, throw the knife at it.
    Now pick the knife up (that it dropped) and throw it at it.  Now blitz
    and you're done with the first one.  Go forward and grab the meat from
    the box.  The Knife Ninja will come from the right.  Omega Nugie or
    blitz it until its dead.  Go to Stage 3.
    
         Stage 3  Act 1:
    
         Go forward and take out the thug.  Now break the trashcan and
    grab the extra super.  Now take out the bar BP and the sitting thug.
    Now get the extra points from the next trashcan, take out the BP, and
    finally get the apple from the last trashcan.  Now go slowly forward.
    Stop whenever a life bar appears below yours.  Now wait until a Dancer
    to come out and either hit her with a super to damage her, or Omega
    Nugie/backflip her to death.  Now do the same thing to the next one.
    
         Stage 3  Act 2:
    
         Wait for the first motorcycle to pass you, then walk up to the
    dark line between the top and middle track.  Here you will not get
    hit.  Stop when you see a giant egg thing at the top of the screen.
    Now, let all the motorcycles pass then go up, break it, and get the
    bar.  Continue forward until the motorcycles stop.  Now break the next
    purple egg to get an apple.  Continue forward and take out the green
    thug with your bar.  Do the same thing to the next two thugs.  Now you
    must fight Jet.  To defeat him you must Drop Kick or Spinning Death
    him several times.  You can, if your lucky, hit him when he flies low
    a knife or bar.  Now, go forward while dodging the motorcycles.  Once
    they pass, you will meet three Spikers.  Take the bar to them.  Also
    break the purple egg to get some meat.  Go forward some more, while
    dodging the motorcycles to complete this act.
    
         Stage 3  Act 3:
    
         You will find a knife thug first.  Take the knife and throw it at
    the green BP.  Now, take out the green knife thug that comes from the
    right (you may also want to get the stuff in the egg).  Use his knife
    on the green, bar BP.  Use the bar on the green thug that enters from
    the right.  Go forward and take out the green thug and BP.  Now throw
    the bar at the green, bar BP.  Now take out the knife thug (the egg
    holds a knife).  Go forward and you will meet Blanka.  Use the bar on
    him as welll as blitz attacks/backflips/Spinning Deaths.  If you need
    it, there is some meat in the egg up top.  Go forward and you will
    meet duo of green thugs.  Blitz them.  Now go forward carefully.  A
    ninja will attack.  Omega Nugie him.  Go forward and another will
    attack.  Do the same thing to him.  If they both attack at one, super
    them.  Go forward and you will meet the Teleporter.  Stay in the upper
    left/right corner and whenever he gets a lock, walk downforward to
    dodge the laser.  Now Omega Nugie him to death.
    
         Stage 4  Act 1:
    
         A knife punk will attack right off the bat.  Use his knife on the
    next punk and get the gold coin from under the box.  Throw the knife
    at the BP that comes, then PK the thug that drops.  Now backflip the
    BP behind you.  Another guy will drop down, so PFK him then blitz the
    BP that comes from the right.  Now break the box and get the apple.
    Go forward.  Now you will face your first fat burner (for lack of a
    better name).  Just Omega Nugie him to death.  Now Spinning
    Death/backflip the next three thugs and grab the goodies from under
    the box.  Now go forward and Omega Nugie the ninja, then beat the
    knifed thug to the ground.
    
         Stage 4  Act 2:
    
         Okay, go forward and beat up the thug, then take out the BP with
    a blitz.  Now you will be confronted with a BP and a thug.  Just
    backflip/Omega Nugie them both.  Use the knife you got from the last
    thug on the BP with a bar.  Now use the bar on the thug that comes
    from the right.  Keep going right until you find a lone fat burner.
    Hit him with the bar, then throw the bar at him, and finally
    blitz/spinning death him for the kill.  Now you get to fight two fat
    burners.  You can fight them one at a time if you walk right very
    slowly.  Omega Nugie or super them.  If there is only one, infinte
    headbutt him.  Go forward to fight the Bouncer again.  Super him once
    while he is standing still, then Omega Nugie him a few times.
    
         Stage 4  Act 3:
    
         Take out the thug, grab the apple from under the box, then take
    out the knife thug.  Use the knife on the next thug and get ready to
    fight Jet again.  Use the same tactics as you used before and you
    should be fine.  Remeber, always be moving.  Go right after defeating
    him.  You now get to fight three knife ninjas in a row.  To beat them,
    either Omega Nugie them or backflip them, then throw their knife back
    at them.  Collect the gold coin and bar between battles.  After the
    third ninja, get the meat that is in the box.  Proceed to the boss.
    Super the boss while he is standing still.  Now attack with backflips,
    spinning deaths, PFK, or anything else you can think of.  Just
    remember, you can not Omega Nugie him!
    
         Stage 5  Act 1:
    
         Take out the two Spikers with PFK combo or an Omega Nugie.  After
    that, you must fight two dancers.  Again, if you move slowly to the
    right you will only have to fight them one at a time.  If they both
    attack, just super them.  Go forward.  You will meet up with a
    demolition droid (DD) and a ON.  First, get the knife (from the
    canister) and throw it at the DD.  If you are lucky, it will kill the
    ON also.  Another red ON will attack along with another DD.  Throw one
    into the other for an easy kill (use The Flipper when throwing them).
    One last ON will attack - Omega Nugie it.  Now go forward and you will
    find a Spiker - blitz him.  You will also find two canisters.  Break
    both and get the extra super and extra points from both.  Continue on.
    You will meet another Spiker.  Keep going to find four or so more
    along with another canister.  keep going to find the Teleporter again.
    Use the same tactics to defeat him again.
    
         Stage 5  Act 2:
    
         Get the extra points from the canister, then kill both thugs that
    will come from the right.  Take the knife from the lower one and use
    it on the Spikers that comes from the right.  Now backflip the Spiker
    that runs in from the left.  Now continue on and break the canister to
    get a bar.  Use the bar on the next two Spikers.  Go forward to fight
    a ninja.  Use your bar and your Omega Nugie the entire time.  Break
    the canister to get an extra life.  Continue on.  Move slowly and
    you'll meet another ninja.  Dispose of him via Omega Nugie/bar and
    continue.  You'll meet yet another.  Ues the fire to your advantage
    and throw/hit him into it.  Go on.  A total of six DDs will attack.
    The Flipper all of them and you won't get hurt.  Remember, if you get
    hit by one explosion you will die.  Also, in the canister is some
    meat.  Go on and you'll find a robot with a DD.  Don't throw the
    robot, instead just PFK or Drop Kick it.  Also, throw the DDs into it
    for some major damage.  Watchout, it shoots lasers and has a mace for
    an arm that can stretch out.
    
         Stage 5  Act 3:
    
         Go forward and beat up the three opponents with knifes.  Now you
    get to fight Jet again.  Use the same tactics to win.  Grab a knife
    and continue onward.  Go slowly so you will only fight one robot at a
    time.  For the best effect, throw the knife and blitz one, and use all
    of your supers on the other.  Remember, you can't use your supers in
    the next level.
    
         Stage 6  Act 1:
    
         Go forward and take out the two thugs.  Slowly go forward and
    dispose of the ninjas as they appear.  Go forward and grab the apple
    that is in the vase.  Prepare to fight the Boxer for the last time.
    Use the everything besides throws to finish him off.
    
         Stage 6  Act 2:
    
         A thug and a BP with a bar will drop down.  Beat them up but do
    not pick up the bar.  Now take out the bouncer with the infinite
    headbutt tactice.  Now a ninja and a BP will drop down.  Take out the
    ninja with a Omega Nugie.  Now two knife ninjas will drop down.  Try
    to get them together, this way you can hit both with one attack.  Now
    a Spiker and two green thugs will come down.  Take them out with your
    backflip.  Finally Blanka will drop down.  Throw knives and the bar at
    him.  Once you run out blitz or Spinning Death him to death.
    
         Stage 6  Act 3:
    
         As you start, a thug and a BP will attack.  Once they are gone,
    another thug/BP will come out to fight you.  Once they are gone the
    Master Ninja will fight you.  He can not be thrown and can duck out of
    attacks (like the Bouncer).  Drop Kicks and the last hit of the Human
    Cannonball are great.  The PFK can be good, but only the first two
    hits.  His attacks consist of a Jumping Fist, the Burning Slide, and a
    throw.  After he is gone, Mr. X will attack.  He can't be thrown, but
    he can not back out of attacks.  Blitz, PFK combo, or Spinning Death
    should be your main choices.  Mr. X only has two attacks.  They are: a
    hit with the butt of the gun, and shooting the gun.  He isn't very
    hard to beat, just don't grab him and don't let up with you attacks.
