_____________________________________________________________________________

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,

Richard Arnatt << guitarfreak86@hotmail.com >>

=====\__/  \__/================================================( 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.

Irish whip your opponent into the ropes, run the opposite way and prod [R]


Ted Debiase - "Million Dollar Dream"
------------------------------------
When opponent is groggy, press [R] from behind him

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.

_____________________________________________________________________________

This is the section where I answer questions that I get asked a lot in email 
that I receive from readers of this guide. As this is the first version of my 
FAQ, there are not any "Bona Fide" questions to write here, so for now I'll 
just have to pre-empt you all:

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!
