******************
* 2.2 Weak Point *
******************

  In Fighter's History, a character can only be dizzied once per round.  There
is a unique way in which a character is dizzied in the game.  Every character
has their own weak point.  This weak point (usually a piece of clothing) will
begin to flash once it has been struck a few times.  Once it flashes, the next
successful strike to that area will cause that item to pop off the character,
and in the process, causing the character to become dizzied.  Every
character's weak zone is listed in the character's movelist next to their
color selection as well as here for convenience:

Ray:        lightning bolt
Feilin:     breastplate 
Ryoko:      headband
Matlok:     headgear
Samchay:    armband
Lee:        knees
Mizoguchi:  headband
Jean:       leg band
Marstorius: leg warmers

Karnov: I can't believe.  I've been defeated!  The same is unbearable...  And
        the winnings, they all belong to you now.
Ray: I don't want your money, pal.  I fight for the thrill of the competition.
     The chance to test my strength and my skills against the best of the best.
     You of all people should be able to understand...
Narrator: And without a second look, Ray turned and walked away.  Satisfied
          with his decisive victory against the ruthless Karnov.  Ray returned
          to the States, knowing that someday a new fighter would come to 
          challenge him.

Lee: At long last, my father's death shall be avenged!
Lee's Master: Ten Dok, stop this display of brutality!  Do not forget the words
              of your father, "The fist raised in anger will never be the fist
              of a true champion..."
Lee: Master...
Narrator: Several years later...  Realizing his father's words were true, Ten
          Dok gave up his championship title, and returned to his village.  Now
          he trains for a different reason.  To regain the throne in the name
          of honor, not vengeance.
