    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Hello and welcome to my FAQ for WWF Royal Rumble for the SNES! WWF Royal 
    Rumble holds special sentimental value for me, as it was the first game I 
    ever played seriously, and it also turned me into a wrestling fan at a very 
    early age. Sadly, my enthusiasm for televised "Sport Entertainment" has 
    somewhat waned, however my passion for this game remains. Ten years since its 
    release, I regularly don my spandex one-piece costume and grab the nearest 
    guy with a mullet for a quick blast on this wonderful piece of software!
    
    WWF Royal Rumble was, in the opinion of many gamers including myself, the 
    first wrestling game for the SNES that accurately portrayed the action seen 
    on the weekly editions of "WWF Raw Is War" and "Superstars" that my friends 
    and I used to stay up until midnight to watch on satellite TV. Ah, the 
    dedication we UK wrestling fans have! Besides the graphics, which were pretty 
    good for their time, authentic music was used on the selection screen, and 
    the crowd effects were as close to real as had been heard on a console at the 
    time. Obviously, things have moved on a lot since 1993, but who cares!? WWF 
    Royal Rumble was really fun to play, and as far as I'm concerned, that is all 
    that matters in a game.
    
    Anyway, enough of my nostalgic raving, on with the guide already! I hope that 
    you enjoy my FAQ and that you find it helpful in mastering this excellent 
    game. 
    
    Thanks for reading,

    -------------------------------------------------------
    - Added a new question to my "Frequently Asked Questions" section.

    Version 1.3 (1st Jul, 2003) - Display properly, damnit!

    - Given the FAQ a nice, IGN-friendly format to avoid the "?" that appear all
      over the place.

    =====\__/  \__/================================================( SECTION 02 )
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    This is the section where you can find out what all of the game modes do in 
    WWF Royal Rumble. There are four main sections, so hopefully there should be 
    little confusion in this area.
    
    Before each match, you are given the opportunity to set the difficulty from 
    1-10, with 1 being the easiest setting. Win the Rumble on 10 and you're doing 
    well indeed.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                 02.a - One-on-one Match   
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    The top option on the mode selection screen, a one-on-one matches is - as the 
    name suggests - a bout between two fighters, with the first to score a pin-
    fall, count-out or submission proclaimed the victor. Once a one-on-one match 
    has been selected, a number of new options appear:
    
    - One Fall - Regular match in an open ring. Choking and eye-raking is 
      strictly prohibited, as is the use of any weaponry such as chairs or the
      ring bell. Any misconduct will result in the immediate disqualification of
      the guilty parties.
    
    - Brawl - A no-holds-barred match where anything goes. The match ends only 
      when either competitors stamina gauge becomes fully depleted, at which
      point the exhausted party will be forced to forfeit the match. Weapons can
      be utilised, as well as illegal holds and conduct normally deemed unfair in
      a regular match-up.
    
    - Tournament - A tournament consisting of eleven rounds for the WWF 
      Championship Belt. Throughout the course of the tournament you must fight 
      and successfully defeat each and every wrestler in the game in succession.
      No mean feat, I assure you. Successful completion will win you the belt and
      your wrestler's mug-shot in WWF Magazine!
    
    - Two Player - Got a friend and a spare controller? Take them on in a two
      -player match or brawl.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                     02.b - Tag Team
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Tag team matches allow two teams of two wrestlers to compete in a normal 
    match. Only one player from each team may enter the ring at one time, and the 
    dormant team-mate must "tag" their opponent to switch places with them. The 
    match types available are as follows:
    
    - One Fall
    - Brawl
    - Tournament
    - Two player - playing co-operatively or competitively with another human 
      player.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                 02.c - Triple Tag Team    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Triple tag teams are similar to regular tag team matches, but guess what?! 
    You have three people in each team. The same game modes for Tag Team are 
    available for Triple Tag Team matches.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                   02.d - Royal Rumble!      
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    The match that this game is named after, the Royal Rumble is a twelve-man 
    extravaganza, where the aim is to throw all opponents out of the ring to 
    eliminate them. The last man remaining at the end is the winner! One or two 
    players may compete in the Rumble, however once one player is ejected from 
    the ring they must sit and watch the rest of the match with nothing to do.
    
    This mode is the ultimate challenge in the game, as it requires great skill 
    and stamina (and even a little luck) to succeed. Tackling all twelve 
    competitors on the harder difficulty settings is an arduous task indeed.

    Of course, depending on the difficulty level chosen, the task of winning a 
    match-up in WWF Royal Rumble will vary in the challenge it provides. These 
    strategies are only a suggestion; there are multiple effective methods to 
    win. The following methods are the ones I use most often when playing 
    matches. Hopefully you will find them helpful too!
    
    If you have an alternative strategy, please email it to me and I will include 
    it. Mais oui, you will receive full credit for any strategy I include, 
    monsieur.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                 04.a - One Fall Matches
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    As soon as the ring bell sounds, move towards the centre of the ring and 
    punch your opponent twice, followed by a swift kick to the mid-section. 
    Grapple with your opponent and hammer the [A] button to deliver a head-butt. 
    Perform a couple of ground attacks like a leg-drop or a splash before 
    hoisting him to his feet. Repeat the punch, punch, kick and grapple move 
    combo, either head-butting again, or maybe mix it up a little with a few 
    suplexes or atomic drops. I suggest using the atomic drop move, as it takes a 
    massive chunk off your opponent's stamina.
    
    After performing these combos two or three times in succession, your 
    opponent's stamina gauge should be about half-full (or half-empty, should you 
    be the pessimistic sort). At this stage, you can either finish the job by 
    doing a couple more of the combos you used beforehand, or you can showboat a 
    little. Floor your opponent, climb the turnbuckle and perform some 
    spectacular manoeuvres such as a splash or a diving elbow. 
    
    Continue to assault your opponent until his stamina gauge drops into the red 
    zone. Once this is the case, you are able to perform your character-specific 
    signature move. If you are unsure about how to do this, consult section 03.b 
    to find out. Once you have executed this manoeuvre, pin your opponent and 
    wait for the "1, 2, 3!".
    
    If you are still having trouble winning using this method, I suggest you 
    practice on an easier difficulty setting. Using this strategy, I am able to 
    win most matches whilst only taking one or two hits.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                  04.b - Brawl Matches
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    In brawl matches, anything goes! The aim of the game it to completely empty 
    your opponent's stamina bar using any means possible. Eye-gouging, choking 
    and the use of weapons are permitted, so you should take full advantage of 
    this.
    
    At the start of the match, head to the centre of the ring and pummel your 
    opponent with a few punches and proceed to choke him with the [R] button. As 
    long as you tap the button relatively quickly, he will not be able to escape 
    the hold. His stamina should reduce steadily, while he is completely unable 
    to attack you.
    
    Once there is a reasonable gap between your stamina and his, you will be 
    wanting to take the fight outside of the ring. If you are standing near the 
    ring ropes, grapple you foe and tap [Y] rapidly to hurl him out of the ring 
    and on to the harsh concrete floor. Otherwise, climb out of the ring and he 
    will foolishly follow you to ground level.
    
    Once outside of the ring, grapple your opponent and perform a few suplexes or 
    atomic drops, which inflict greater damage due to the unforgiving surface you 
    are dropping him onto. Another good attack is to Irish Whipping your 
    adversary into the metal railings on the extreme left and right of the arena, 
    which inflicts considerable damage to him.
    
    Once the match is firmly in your grasp, grab either of the steel chairs 
    leaning against the bottom of the ring apron and smack your opponent in the 
    chops. You only get one swing with the chair, but a good, clean hit in the 
    face will have a devastating effect upon your opponent.
    
    Finally, once your opponent's stamina is close to empty, finish the match in 
    style by re-entering the ring and layeth the smacketh down on his ass with 
    your character's signature move to finish him off. Sorted!
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                                   04.c - Tag Matches
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Tag matches are no harder than regular matches, except they take longer to 
    finish. This is because you need to beat up all players in the opposite team 
    to ensure victory. As soon as a CPU team member's stamina bar drops below 
    50%, they will immediately seek their team-mates and tag them into the 
    action. Unfortunately, once he makes his way towards his team partner, there 
    is very little you can do to stop him.
    
    You too should apply the CPU's tactic of tagging once your active wrestler's 
    stamina gauge falls below half-capacity. The inactive wrestler's stamina 
    slowly rises again while he waits in his corner. Keep doing this to maximise 
    your chances of success.
    
    While wrestling, avoid straying nearly the opposing team's corner, for more 
    often than not one of the dormant wrestlers will grab your throat and begin 
    to choke you, allowing the other team members to pull a few cheap shots at 
    your expense. Also, whatever you do, refrain from climbing out of the ring on 
    you're their side, as both team members will then become active and beat you 
    senseless. Likewise, I encourage you to hurl your opponent out to your team's 
    side of the ring, as then you will have a considerable advantage.
    
    As for the fighting itself, just follow the same method you use for one-on-
    one duels - simple chains of moves, nothing too elaborate - and you will have 
    no trouble in winning these matches.
    
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
                               04.d - Royal Rumble Matches
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    The match from which this game borrows it's title, the Royal Rumble is the 
    toughest challenge you will face while playing it! To win, you must 
    successfully eliminate all other competitors by ejecting them from the ring. 
    The match begins with two competitors, and a new competitor is added to the 
    bout every ten seconds, until all twelve have entered the ring.
    
    There are only two ways to eject a wrestler from the ring:
    
    - An Irish Whip (grapple and mash [Y]) when your back is to the ropes.
    
    - An Atomic Drop (grapple and [L]) when your opponent is closer to the ropes.
    
    Of the two methods, the latter is by far most effective, although the Irish 
    Whip method will probably be your most commonly used method. Master using 
    both to ensure that you can tackle any opponent without needing to waste 
    valuable seconds thinking.
    
    Of course, due to the scale of this match, you are going to need a little 
    luck in winning a Royal Rumble. Now no FAQ can teach you luck, but hereís a 
    little help to make winning this tough little cookie that tiny bit more 
    attainable.
    
    From the start, grab the first opponent you come across and throttle the life 
    out of him by hammering the [R] key. Not only will this swiftly eat away your 
    victimís stamina, but you are also impervious to attacks by other wrestlers. 
    Once you have knocked him about a bit, chuck him out of the ring and repeat 
    the process with the nearest guy available. Using this method, you should be 
    able to claim victory within ten minutes.

                             06.a - "Cloning" Your Wrestler
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    At the character select screen, press and hold the [L] button until the "WWF" 
    logos in the background stop moving completely. Once this occurs, press and 
    hold the [R] button in tandem with [L] and once the logos stop moving again 
    select you character. When given the option to select your opponent, press 
    right once and you will be given the option to choose the same character 
    again to fight against. Weird, non?
    
    Heh, at least it gives you the chance to resolve an argument if everyone 
    wants to play as Bret Hart or The Undertaker, as was a common occurrence when 
    playing with friends. It's also quite a novelty, if you think about it!

                             06.b - Iron-Fisted Wrestlers

    Plug a controller into Port One and hold the [Y] button before turning the 
    power on. Wait for the copyright screen to load, then once the text begins to 
    fade press and hold [B] while [Y] is still held. If done correctly, you 
    should hear a wrestlers voice go "oof!", as if hit in the stomach.
    
    Proceed to load any game mode, and revel in the fact that you can drain 40% 
    of your opponent's stamina bar in one punch. Try a Royal Rumble in this 
    state, and you'll realise how devastating this trick can be. You are 
    virtually unbeatable!

                                    06.c - Glitches 
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    So far I have found only one glitch in this game, and it concerns the Royal 
    Rumble mode itself. It can cause the game to crash, but it can also cause the 
    game to create TWELVE copies of the same wrestler to do battle with in the 
    ring. Okay, so it's hardly The Matrix: Reloaded, but it looks pretty cool 
    nevertheless.
    
    So how do you do it? Simple! Just start a regular one-on-one bout against the 
    person you want to fight against, Agent Smith style, then either win the 
    match or quit to the title screen. Next, go as if to start a Royal Rumble, 
    but before you get to the character select screen hit [X] or [Y] until you 
    get back to the main screen. Highlight "REMATCH" and you will hopefully 
    arrive in the midst of a Rumble with as many as 5 of the same character in 
    the ring at the same time!
    
    If you spot any more glitches like this, give me a shout via email and I'll 
    stick it in this section too.

    Q: Are there any secret characters in this game?
    A: Unfortunately, there are no secrets whatsoever for this game. It sucks, 
    but the rest of the game is so good that I'll forgive them this once.
    
    Q: How do you knock out the referee?
    A: Either run into him, or Irish Whip your opponent into him. Easy!
    
    Q: A magazine/web site/friend/fortune cookie told me that Papa Shango is in 
    this game, but I cannot find him. Please help!
    A: Papa Shango and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan appeared in the Genesis/Megadrive 
    version of WWF Royal Rumble, but they were omitted from the SNES version due 
    to the capacity of the cartridge. Sega's version used an 18 megabit cart, 
    whereas good old Ninty decided that an 16 megabit cartridge would be 
    sufficient.
    
    Q: How do I choose what colour costume my character wears?
    A: Select them with [A] or [B] to alternate between lighter and darker shades 
    of their outfit.
    
    Q: When I do that "clone character" glitch, my game crashes. Why is this?
    A: It's a glitch, that's why! A "glitch" is an undetected error in the game's
       code. Sometime, a glitch can be beneficial, but just as often it can be
       crippling, like the infamous "Purple Nine Glitch" on Grand Theft Auto III.
    
    Q: How are you feeling today?
    A: Not bad, thanks for asking!
    
    Q: Who's your favourite wrestler?
    A: Err, what happened to the "assistance with the game" part of my Contact Me
       section. Tsk! Oh, and it's Kurt Angle.
    
    That's all for now!
