IMPORTANT - BEFORE E-MAILING ME: Please please PLEASE run a Virus Scanner 
on your computer.  During the latter half of 2003, very soon after I 
received a batch of SCII e-mailings, someone (probably in that batch) 
began spamming me (repeatedly) with an e-mail Virus.  If you cannot afford 
a Virus Scanner, at the very least, download and run the latest version of 
McAfee's free "Stinger" utility (or any other trustworthy free utility 
that does the same thing), which will get rid of a good number of the most 
common Viruses out there.  Your friends will thank you.

I.1  What is this document?

     This document is an English language informational resource for the 
PlayStation2 version of SoulCalibur II (SCII), a weapons-based 3D fighting 
game by Namco.
     In this document, I'll be covering codes, secrets, details, 
clarifications, and other such information which may be of interest to 
SCII fans.  This is a Secrets FAQ (side note: I'm using "faq" herein with 
its more colloquial definition of "document of organized information", 
rather than its more traditional definition, which implies organizational 
headings in the form of questions...), and not a moves list or strategy 
guide, btw, so I won't be including any complete moves/combo lists, or 
detailed character strategies, or anything like that in this document...
     This document was written for the J version of the PS2 SCII, but it 
seems likely that at least some of the information contained herein may 
apply to other versions of the game as well...
     SoulCalibur II (PS2, J) basic info:
        1 DVD ROM Disc (SLPS-25230)
        1-2 Players
        Works with: PlayStation2 8MB Memory Card (137 KB)
        6800 (y)en

     U/C note: I've also gathered data from the XB U/C (United States / 
Canada) and GC U/C versions of the game.  Supplementary information in 
regards to the U/C version of SCII has been added to sections of this 
document.  Such notes about the U/C version will be preceded by the phrase 
"U/C note" or "U/C notes".
     XB note: Supplementary information in regards to the XB (U/C) version 
of SCII will be preceded by the phrase "XB note" or "XB notes".
     GC note: Supplementary information in regards to the GC (U/C) version 
of SCII will be preceded by the phrase "GC note" or "GC notes".


I.2  What is SoulCalibur II?

     SoulCalibur II (SCII) is a weapons-based 3D fighting game by Namco.  
It's the sequel to SoulCalibur (SCalibur), which is the sequel to SoulEdge 
(SE).  The SCII story takes place four years after SCalibur.
     (Side note on Nightmare's age: Although Nightmare's age is listed as 
"Unknown", being that Siegfried was 19 in SCalibur, he's probably 23 in 
SCII (unless the SoulEdge stopped his aging, like it (presumably) did for 
Cervantes)).

What's new in SCII gameplay (compared to SCalibur):
     The Guard Impact technique has been made simpler, but less versatile.  
Instead of a choice of Repelling or Parrying any attack, now all High and 
Mid attacks are Guard Impacted with Repels (f+G), and all Low attacks are 
Guard Impacted with Parries (b+G).
     Some arenas now have walls as partial or total borders.  A wall can 
cause damage to a character that is knocked into it.
     Wall impact quick recovery (kabe-ukemi).  Much like a ground impact 
ukemi (press G (or be holding G) upon ground impact for a quick recovery), 
a wall impact ukemi can be used to recover quickly from wall impact stun.  
After being knocked into a wall, press f to roll towards your opponent, 
press d to roll towards the foreground, or press u to roll towards the 
background.  Note: This can also be done for high wall impacts (i.e. when 
your feet are not touching the ground).
     Wall jumps and wall jump attacks.  After jumping (backward) into a 
wall (ub+G / G(ub) / ub(G)), hold the jump command (hold G and hold ub) or 
execute another jump command (any direction (u/uf/ub) jump) as you hit the 
wall, and you'll execute a wall jump.  Press an attack button during a 
wall jump, and you'll execute a wall jump attack (some of which are 
different from their normal jump attack equivalents).
     Special wall jumps.  With some special moves, you can bounce off a 
wall, either by holding the attack button(s) used to execute the move, or 
by pressing the button(s) again as you hit the wall.  Some examples: 
Cervantes' d,db,b,B, Taki's A+B, Talim's f+B+K...  Side note: Necrid's 
f+B+K and d,db,b,B do not have wall bounce properties...
     Special wall-assisted flip-jumps.  Some characters can utilize a wall 
to perform a backflip or forward flip.  Consult the wall flip section 
(Miscellany) of this document for more information.
     8-way running is easier, but crouching is more difficult.  The d, db, 
and df directions now immediately (no double-tap necessary) initiate 8-way 
run (8WR).  Use G(d/db/df) to initiate a crouch instead.
     You can move while Soul Charging (A+B+K) now, but Soul Charge 
unblockables take longer to prepare.
     All characters can creep forward and backward while Guarding (when 
standing).
     A maximum distance between opponents has been implemented.  If you 
try to move further away from your opponent than the maximum distance, the 
screen edge will slowly "drag" your opponent with you.
     There are some other new things as well, but those are the major 
differences...

What's new in the PS2 version of SCII (compared to the arcade version):
     Two new characters: Necrid (a Dural-like "composite style" character) 
and Heihachi (from the Tekken series).  In the GC version of the game, 
Heihachi has been replaced with Link (from the Zelda series); and in the 
XB version, he has been replaced with Spawn (from the Image comic of the 
same name).
     Two returning SoulCalibur characters: Seung Mina and Sophitia can 
both be unlocked as playable!
     More weapons!  Similar to the weapons earned in the PSX SE Edge 
Master Mode, the weapons earned/purchased in the SCII Weapon Master Mode 
(WMM) actually have varying stats, effects, and/or abilities!  Special 
weapons can be used in the "Extra" version of any mode, as well as in 
Museum modes and Weapon Master Mode itself.
     No Conquest Mode: Conquest Mode is apparently an arcade-version 
exclusive.
     Again, there are some other new things as well, but those are the 
major differences...

U/C notes:
What's new in the U/C home version of SCII (compared to the J version):
     English or Japanese voice is selectable via Sound Settings.
     English Subtitle option in Game Settings.
     Assassin, Berserker, and Lizardman are unlockable via WMM, but will 
only be selectable in (Original and Extra) VS, Team, and Practice modes, 
and Battle Theater.  They don't seem to have W2-W11s, but they do have 6 
costumes each (2 costumes, with 3 color variations each).  Also, they 
don't seem to have game-internal Command Lists.  =/
     More Weapons can be unlocked instead of purchased: Some squares in 
Dungeon missions will unlock specific Weapons.
     Some weapons have slightly different stats/properties, compared to 
their J version equivalents.  Most (but not all) of these changes actually 
improve the weapon (for the wielder).
     Most of the WMM rankings have been renamed for no obvious reason.  
Also, a new ranking has been added between Lv.29 and Lv.30 (the J version 
skipped from Silver to Platinum, so a Gold ranking was inserted), and the 
first Grand Edgemaster ranking (Wolf) appears to have been removed.  Due 
to Lv.31-76 being displaced by 1, an extra 20000 Exp will be necessary 
before one can unlock WMM Subchapter 2...
     WMM exits back to the World Map (this can't be disabled or 
interrupted, as far as I know) every time a new Chapter is unlocked.
     Overall, the difficulty of CPU opponents (in all modes of the game) 
seems to have been increased; opponents seem to use defensive tactics 
(such as Guard, Guard Impact, Sidestep, and Throw Escape) more frequently 
(even in Easy difficulty).  This makes a number of WMM missions (4-3e and 
E2-1e, for example) a lot more challenging than before.  And makes Time 
Attack Extreme and Extra TAE that much more difficult to complete...
     Stage 14 variations have special properties in Extra VS Battle and 
Extra VS Team Battle.  In those two modes, the variations will be marked 
with "Sand", "Fire", and "Ice" on the stage select screen.  The "Sand" 
variation will have a pool of quicksand (if one stands still, one sinks 
into it and becomes slower), the "Fire" variation will have a ring of 
molten lava (standing on it for too long will cause one to burst into 
flames and take damage), and the "Ice" variation will have a slippery 
surface (one tends to keep moving in one's direction of travel, even after 
one has stopped).  As far as I know, there is no way to select these 
special properties in any other mode with stage selection, nor is there 
any way to select the mundane versions in Extra VS and/or Extra VS Team 
modes.
     Significantly more Gold is earned from non-WMM modes.
     Attract mode high score listings scroll significantly faster.
     Once again, there are some other new things as well, but those are 
the major differences...

EU notes:
What's new in the EU home version of SCII (compared to the U/C version):
     From what I've been told, the EU version of SCII is pretty much just 
a PAL conversion of the NTSC U/C version (i.e. nothing significant has 
been added, removed, or changed).
     Uncomfirmed: The EU version of SCII gives you slightly more 
information about some (but not all) of the special weapons (W2-W11).


I.3  Notation and stuff

     In order to stave off any potential confusion, here follow some of 
the standards of notation I'll be using in this document...

       G          Guard              (defaults to X)
       A          Horizontal attack  (defaults to [square])
       B          Vertical attack    (defaults to [triangle])
       K          Kick attack        (defaults to O)
       u/d/l/r    up, down, left, and right (respectively) on the
                    d-pad/stick
       +          at the same time as
       ,          then
       =          a quick "then" that links commands yielding a single
                    action
       /          or
       x(y)       press y while holding x
       [x]        hold x
       P1         Player 1: the player assigned to start on the left side;
                    the default outfit for a P1 side character.
       P2         Player 2: the player assigned to start on the right
                    side; the default outfit for a P2 side character.
       P3         A character's third outfit.
       W1-W11     Weapon 1 through Weapon 11.
       J          Japan version (of SCII)
       U/C        United States / Canada version (of SCII)
       EU         Europe (PAL) version (of SCII)

     In denoting d-pad positions and movements, I'll also be using the 
following notation:
   n   neutral              Here's a visual chart:
   u   up
   d   down                          u                      u
   f   forward                   ub     uf              uf     ub
   b   back                    b     n     f          f     n     b
   df  down-forward              db     df              df     db
   db  down-back                     d                      d
   uf  up-forward
   ub  up-back                (facing right)          (facing left)

     On numbering weapons:
     To specify weapons, I'll note character and weapon number.  I've 
decided to number the weapons from 1 to 11 (W1 to W11).  Even though the 
Weapon Gallery displays 12 weapons per character (both P1 and P2 versions 
of each W1 are shown), on any weapon select screen, you will have a choice 
of only 11 weapons.  If it becomes necessary to specify, "W1a" shall refer 
to the P1 version W1, and "W1b" shall refer to the P2 version.  P3 outfits 
have been assigned the W1a; I don't think there's a way to select the W1b 
with a P3 outfit.


------------------------
II. Characters and Stuff
------------------------

II.1  Hidden Characters

     15 characters are initially playable: Astaroth, Cassandra, Heihachi, 
Ivy, Kilik, Maxi, Mitsurugi, Necrid, Nightmare, Raphael, Taki, Talim, 
Voldo, Xianghua, and Yunsung.
     5 other characters are unlockable as playable characters.  There are 
also 3 characters that appear only in Weapon Master Mode and as Extra mode 
opponents.  And, of course, there's Inferno (the Arcade Mode boss 
character).

     (Side note: Necrid and Heihachi are new additions for the home 
version of SCII.  Necrid is kind of a Dural-like character (Dural from the 
Virtua Fighter series of fighting games), in that his moves list seems 
comprised mostly of moves originating from other characters' styles 
(Necrid's energy force will create whatever weapon he needs (or a 
close-enough equivalent) for whatever move he's doing).  Heihachi is the 
Mishima grandfather from the Tekken series.  His SCII style seems (imho) 
to play a bit more like his Tekken Tag style than his Tekken 4 style, but 
does differ in ways from both.  Interestingly, he does still have 2 
10-strings and a 9-string, but a Soul Charge (A+B+K) is required before 
initiating them.)

     U/C notes: Assassin, Berserker, and Lizardman are unlockable for use 
in some (but not all) modes of the game.  See "Non-unlockable Characters" 
section for more information.


II.1.A  Unlockable Characters (5)
        -------------------------
     Cervantes, Charade, Seung Mina, Sophitia, and Yoshimitsu are 
unlockable as playable (playable in all modes) via Weapon Master Mode.  
Each character is unlocked by the completion of a specific WMM mission, as 
follows: Yoshimitsu (2-3), Charade (3-1), Cervantes (3-4), Sophitia (4-5), 
Seung Mina (6-3).

     (Side note: Sophitia and Seung Mina are SCalibur characters that 
didn't make it to the arcade version of SCII, but are returning for the 
home version of the game.)

     U/C note: See "Non-unlockable Characters" section for information on 
Assassin, Berserker, and Lizardman, and how to unlock them as playable.


II.1.B  Non-unlockable Characters (4)
        -----------------------------
     Lizardman, Assassin, Berserker, and Inferno are, as far as I can 
tell, *not* unlockable as playable characters (in the J version of SCII).
     Lizardman (from SCalibur), Assassin (a masked warrior whose style 
suspiciously resembles Hwang's (from SCalibur)), and Berserker (a masked 
warrior whose style suspiciously resembles Rock's (from SCalibur)) appear 
as opponents in Weapon Master Mode and some Extra modes.  Lizardman can 
actually be played in two WMM missions (3-2e and 5-1e).  Assassin can be 
played in two WMM missions (5-1 (as a Random teammate) and 5-1e (as the 
secondary character).  Berserker can be played in one WMM mission (5-1e 
(as the tertiary character)).  Lizardman, Assassin, and Berserker have no 
special weapons (W2-W11).
     Inferno is the Arcade mode boss character.  While he was playable in 
the DCast SCalibur (albeit in solid form), it appears that he is not 
playable in the home version of SCII.

     (Side note: Just as Heihachi is exclusive to the PS2 version of SCII, 
Link and Spawn are exclusive to the GC and XB versions (respectively).  It 
is not possible to unlock Link and/or Spawn in the PS2 version of the 
game, so if you want to play as one or both of them, you'll just have to 
purchase one or both of the other two home versions of the game...)

     U/C notes: Assassin, Berserker, and Lizardman *are* unlockable as 
playable, but are *not* playable in all modes.  They are selectable only 
in the following modes: VS Battle, Team Battle, VS Team Battle, Practice, 
Extra VS Battle, Extra Team Battle, Extra VS Team Battle, Extra Practice, 
and Battle Theater.
     Additionally, they still don't have any W2-W11s.  They do, however, 
have 6 selectable costumes each (2 costumes, with 3 color variations 
each), which I've designated as follows, for the sake of clarity of 
variation: P1-1, P2-1, P1-2, P2-2, P1-3, P2-3 (although one could 
certainly designate them simply as P1-P6, for the sake of numerical ease).  
Each costume has a slightly different variation of the character's W1 (W1a 
and W1b, with three color variations each), which I've designated as 
follows: W1a-1, W1b-1, W1a-2, W1b-2, W1a-3, W1b-3.
     Finally, Assassin, Berserker, and Lizardman don't seem to have any 
game-internal Command Lists.  =/
     Anyway, here are the unlock conditions for Assassin, Berserker, and 
Lizardman:
       Assassin   complete mission S3-2e
       Berserker  complete mission S1-1e
       Lizardman  complete *all* WMM missions (normal and Extra missions,
                  including Subchapter 2)


II.1.C  Charade notes
        -------------
     Charade has no style of his/her/its own, but instead uses someone 
else's style for the duration of each round (like Edge Master (SCalibur) 
or Mokujin (Tekken series)).  Charade has no voice (like Mokujin).
     Once all characters are unlocked, Charade can select from the 
following styles (17): Astaroth, Cassandra, Cervantes, Ivy, Kilik, Maxi, 
Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Raphael, Seung Mina, Sophitia, Taki, Talim, Voldo, 
Xianghua, Yoshimitsu, Yunsung.  (note: This is every playable character's 
style except for Heihachi's and Necrid's.)
     Initially, Charade can use neither Sophitia nor Seung Mina style.  
Sophitia style becomes available to Charade once Sophitia has been 
unlocked as a playable character.  Seung Mina style likewise becomes 
available to Charade once Seung Mina has been unlocked as a playable 
character.

     Charade will *randomly* choose a fighting style at the beginning of 
each round.
     In modes with weapon selection (WMM, Extra modes, Museum modes), 
Charade will also select a weapon randomly (from his/her/its randomly 
chosen style), as follows:
      - Any unlocked/purchased weapon is available to Charade.
      - All W2s and W3s are available to Charade, even if they haven't
        been bought yet.
      - Charade will never select a W1 (in modes with weapon selection).

     Charade vs. Inferno note: Charade will not change styles mid-round 
when Inferno does; the Inferno battle counts as a single round.

     U/C note: Assassin style, Berserker style, and Lizardman style appear 
*not* to have been added to Charade's repertoire of styles, even in modes 
in which they are selectable as playable.  =/


II.1.D  Inferno notes
        -------------
     Inferno is the Arcade mode boss (final opponent).  As far as I know, 
Inferno cannot be unlocked as a playable character.  Inferno has no style 
of his/her/its own, but instead uses other characters' styles.  Inferno 
does, however, have a few Inferno-only moves he/she/it can use, regardless 
of what style he/she/it is using.
     Inferno appears to have the same repertoire of styles and selection 
of weapons as Charade (see Charade notes, above, for more details).  Any 
weapon effects that affect (positively or negatively) the user's health, 
however, appear to be ignored when Inferno wields that weapon (exception: 
Inferno does still seem to take block damage, if his/her/its weapon has 
that effect (Mina's W6, for example)).  Additionally, Inferno can't even 
regenerate health via Yoshimitsu's B+K; I don't know if Inferno will still 
lose health via Yoshimitsu's self-damaging moves (d+A+K, b+B+K, etc.).

     The Inferno battle (Arcade mode, Stage 8) is a single round 
(regardless of your game settings) divided into three parts.
      - Part 1: Inferno will use the same style as the player character,
        unless the player is using Heihachi, Necrid, or Charade, in which
        case Inferno will use Nightmare style.
      - Part 2: Activated when Inferno has lost about one-third of
        his/her/its life.  Character positions will be reset.  Inferno
        will select a style randomly.
      - Part 3: Activated when Inferno has lost about two-thirds of
        his/her/its life.  Character positions will be reset.  Inferno
        will select a style randomly.
     If you lose to Inferno and Continue: if "Character Change at 
Continue" (Options, Game Settings) is set to ON, Part 1 will be as stated 
above; if "Character Change at Continue" is set to OFF (default), Inferno 
will select a style randomly for Part 1.

     Other notes about the Inferno battle:
      - The time limit for the Inferno battle will be 150% (rounded down
        to the nearest second) of your selected 1P Round Time (in Game
        Settings).
      - Inferno has high damage resistance, but throws seem to do normal
        (or close to normal) damage.
      - Despite how it may appear, Inferno's stage is not infinite in all
        directions.  There are actually invisible walls forming borders;
        the invisible walls appear to form an enclosed arena the shape of
        an octagon (8 walls, 8 corners).  Interestingly, it appears that,
        unlike with a normal wall, getting knocked into one of these
        invisible walls will *not* cause impact damage...  Wall jumps,
        special wall jumps, and wall flips do still seem to work, however.

     U/C note: Assassin style, Berserker style, and Lizardman style appear 
*not* to have been added to Inferno's repertoire of styles.


II.2  Sub-bosses

     In Arcade mode, your Stage 7 opponent is pre-determined, according to 
your character (the game calls this a "Destined Battle").  This is your 
character's "sub-boss".  Before the sub-boss match, instead of the 
characters' normal pre-match "ready" sequences, there will be a special 
pre-match sequence with the two characters.
     All sub-boss battles take place in the "Cathedral" (9) stage.  
However, the "Cathedral" BGM is not always used; according to the battle, 
BGMs I've designated by theme as "rivals" and "enemies" can also be used 
(although as concepts, perhaps "competition" and "antagonism" might work 
slightly better).

     Here follows a listing for each character of who will appear as the 
sub-boss (note: even if a character has not yet been unlocked as playable, 
he/she/it can appear as a sub-boss), as well as which of the three BGM 
types (cathedral, rivals, enemies) will be used during the stage, and 
which of the four pre-ending sequences (SoulEdge, SoulCalibur, SoulEdge & 
SoulCalibur, sky) will play after you've defeated Inferno, in case 
anybody's interested:

   Character    Sub-boss     BGM type     Pre-ending sequence
     Astaroth     Maxi         enemies      edge
     Cassandra    Charade      cathedral    calibur
     Cervantes    Ivy          rivals       edge
     Charade      Cassandra    cathedral    edge and calibur
     Heihachi     Raphael      enemies      sky
     Ivy          Cervantes    rivals       sky
     Kilik        Xianghua     rivals       calibur
     Maxi         Astaroth     enemies      calibur
     Mitsurugi    Taki         enemies      edge
     Necrid       Talim        cathedral    edge
     Nightmare    Raphael      enemies      edge and calibur
     Raphael      Nightmare    enemies      edge
     Seung Mina   Yunsung      cathedral    calibur
     Sophitia     Cassandra    rivals       calibur
     Taki         Mitsurugi    enemies      sky
     Talim        Yunsung      rivals       sky
     Voldo        Yoshimitsu   cathedral    edge and calibur
     Xianghua     Kilik        rivals       calibur
     Yoshimitsu   Voldo        cathedral    calibur
     Yunsung      Talim        rivals       edge

     (note: Every sub-boss is reciprocated (character is sub-boss of 
character's sub-boss), except for Heihachi's, Necrid's, Seung Mina's, and 
Sophitia's...)

XB note:
     Spawn        Raphael      enemies      edge
GC notes:
     Link         Raphael      zelda        sky
Link's sub-boss battle does take place in the Cathedral (9) stage, but 
instead of the normal "Cathedral" or "Rivals" or "Enemies" BGM, a 
variation on a classic Zelda BGM is used instead.


II.3  Outfits and stuff

     Note on using Random Select: Random select has been made compatible 
with outfit selection, so it is now possible (unlike in the DCast 
SCalibur) to randomly select a P2-outfitted character from the P1 side, 
and vice versa.  Just toggle a character's outfit to whichever outfit 
number you want (P1, P2, P3) before moving to the Random Select box, and 
whatever character you end up with will be using that outfit (exception: 
if a character doesn't have a P3 outfit, his/her/its P2 will be used 
instead).  Weapons are not randomly selected, and so must be selected by 
the player.

     U/C note: A 4th, 5th, or 6th costume (Assassin, Berserker, or 
Lizardman) will end up becoming a P3 (P2 for those characters without a 
P3) for those characters that have fewer costumes than 4.


II.3.A  Outfit selection
        ----------------
     Every character in the game has at least two outfits:
        P1 outfit: default for P1 side
        P2 outfit: default for P2 side
     (side note: When choosing your Practice Mode *opponent*, the default 
outfits will be reversed, in comparison to your Practice Mode character 
(your opponent is on the other side)...)

     Here's what each button does on the character select screen 
(functions seem to be assigned to fixed buttons on the controller, btw):
        O           Select character/weapon
        X           Cancel (where applicable)
        [square]    Select character/weapon
        [triangle]  Outfit toggle (P1, P2, and (if applicable) P3)
        START       Options menu (character select screen)
     (Notes: In mirror matches (same character on both sides), both 
characters cannot use the same outfit, though they can both use the same 
weapon.  P3 outfits and non-default weapons must be unlocked/purchased in 
Weapon Master Mode.)


II.3.B  3rd outfits
        -----------
     12 of the 20 playable characters have a P3 outfit: Astaroth, 
Cassandra, Ivy, Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Raphael, Seung Mina, Sophitia, Taki, 
Talim, Voldo, and Xianghua.  P3 outfits must be unlocked/purchased in WMM 
(see the Weapon Master Mode section of this document for more details).

     GC note: In addition to a P3 outfit, Link also has a P4 outfit.
Both are purchasable in WMM shop E1, though the P4 outfit only becomes 
available for purchase after the P3 outfit has already been bought.


II.3.C  Weapons
        -------
     Each non-Charade playable character has two weapons initially 
available: the P1 version of his/her default weapon (W1a), and the P2 
version of his/her default weapon (W1b).  It is not possible to select the 
W1b when using a P1 outfit, nor is it possible to select the W1a when 
using a P2; the P3 outfit will default to the W1a.  The W1a and W1b differ 
only in how they look; use of one over the other does not, as far as I 
know, affect damage (or damage resistance), speed, range, or anything else 
that can affect a battle.
     Ten more weapons (W2-W11) per non-Charade character can be 
unlocked/purchased via Weapon Master Mode.  Like the weapons in the PSX 
version of SoulEdge, these weapons do have varying stats and abilities!
     Once all weapons are available, each non-Charade character will have 
a choice of 11 weapons (W1-W11) (W1a/W1b variation determined by outfit), 
in any mode where weapon selection is available (WMM, Extra/Museum modes).

     Some general notes about weapons: The W11 is the most expensive 
weapon, but is usually the weakest.  The W10 is sometimes (though not 
always) the best weapon (most powerful/useful), but depending upon your 
personal style of fighting, you may find another weapon to work better for 
you.  See a SCII Weapons FAQ (note: make sure to check which release the 
Weapons FAQ is based on (see U/C note, below)) for more details about each 
weapon's strengths and weaknesses.

     Side note about Necrid's W10: Necrid's W10 takes on the properties of 
his opponent's weapon.  In a Necrid vs. Necrid match, if both players 
select the W10 (thus resulting in no weapon template to copy), both 
weapons will take on the properties of Necrid's W1.

U/C note: Some weapon stats/properties have actually been changed for the 
U/C version, so do be aware that which version of the game a Weapons FAQ 
is based on can affect how accurate it is when applied to your version of 
the game (i.e. if you have a U/C game, consult a Weapons FAQ based on the 
U/C version of the game; if you have a J game, consult one based on the J 
version...).  Here follow some of the changes I noticed, in comparing the 
J version PS2 weapons with the U/C version XB weapons (note: this is not a 
complete list of changes, but merely a list of some of the ones I happened 
to notice):

     Key (stats/properties will only be listed if changes were noted)
       W#    J: Damage given  Damage taken
                Special properties
           U/C: Damage given  Damage taken
                Special properties

(Special property notation notes: -l/Att: Lose a little life every time 
you attack (whether you hit your opponent or not).  BD given: When 
opponent Guards against your attack, he/she will still lose a little life 
(block damage).  BD taken: When you Guard against an opponent's attack, 
you will still lose a little life (block damage).)

II.4  Quotes and poses and stuff

II.4.A. Character selection quotes
        --------------------------
     On the Character Select screen, when a character is selected, 
he/she/it will go through a selection pose and quote (except Charade, who 
poses, but does not speak).  The selection quote a character uses is 
determined by his/her outfit.  As each character has either two or three 
outfits, each character equivalently has two or three selection quotes...

     U/C note: Assassin, Berserker, and Lizardman also have one selection 
quote per outfit...


II.4.B  Vs. screen taunts
        -----------------
     With the exception of Charade (who doesn't speak), each character can 
say one of four things on the pre-battle Vs. screen.  These four quotes 
can be selected with the G, A, B, and K buttons.  If more than one button 
is held down, the button with the highest priority will determine the 
quote used.  In order of descreasing priority: A, B, K, G.
     Vs. screen taunts cannot be used for Destined (sub-boss) battles or 
Inferno battles.


II.4.C  Pre-match poses/quotes
        ----------------------
     Each character appears to have at least two, and as many as five 
pre-match "ready" sequence poses, and can have up to eight quotes per 
pose, for a total of 40 possible basic pose/quote combinations (although 
none of the characters (well, aside from Charade) has anywhere near that 
many...).  These can be selected via a combination of buttons (pose 
select) and d-pad directions (quote select).  Hold down a button and a 
direction while your character's "ready" sequence is loading in order to 
select a specific pre-match pose/quote.  If more than one button is held 
down, the button or button combination with the highest priority will 
determine the pose used.  In order of descreasing priority: GA, G, A, B, 
K.

     Note that the sub-boss battles get special pre-match sequences, 
instead of the normal "ready" sequences.  Also, preliminary testing 
suggests that the pre-match pose/quote for Inferno battles cannot be 
chosen: it seems always to be a specific pre-determined pose, and silent.


Key:
Pose command   special conditions
  quote #       quote command

Various notes: G+A will be represented as GA, for the sake of brevity; 
quote numbers are taken from the Voice section of the character's 
Character Profile (Museum); special conditions include (but are not 
necessarily limited to) character outfit and opponent gender.

Gender notes: There are 7 female characters (Cassandra, Ivy, Seung Mina, 
Sophitia, Taki, Talim, Xianghua), and 13 male characters (Astaroth, 
Cervantes, Charade, Heihachi, Kilik, Maxi, Mitsurugi, Necrid, Nightmare, 
Raphael, Voldo, Yoshimitsu, Yunsung).

Necrid and Voldo notes: I haven't bothered to compile quotes for Necrid 
and Voldo; while quotes are listed in their respective Voice lists, 
neither is actually speaking in an intelligible language, so...

II.4.D  Win poses/quotes
        ----------------
     Each character appears to have at least four, and as many as eight 
win poses, and up to eight quotes per pose, for a total of 64 possible 
basic pose/quote combinations (although none of the characters (well, 
aside from Charade) has anywhere near that many...).  These can be 
selected via a combination of buttons (pose select) and d-pad directions 
(quote select).  Hold down a button (or combination of buttons) and a 
direction while your character's win sequence is loading in order to 
select a specific win pose/quote.  Note: If more buttons than necessary 
are held down, the button or button combination with the highest priority 
will determine the pose used.  In order of descreasing priority: GA, GB, 
GK, AB, K, B, A, G.

     Note on sub-boss and Inferno battles (Arcade mode stages 7 and 8): 
There seem to be pre-assigned win pose/quotes for the winning round of 
sub-boss and Inferno matches.  Also, if the sub-boss wins, he/she may have 
a specific pose/quote as well...


Key:
Pose command   special conditions
  quote #       quote command

Various notes: G+A, G+B, G+K, and A+B will be represented as GA, GB, GK, 
and AB (respectively), for the sake of brevity; quote numbers are taken 
from the Voice section of the character's Character Profile (Museum); 
special conditions include (but are not necessarily limited to) character 
outfit, weapon used, and opponent gender.

Note on using neutral (n) as a win quote command: If you select a win 
pose, but don't select a quote (keep the d-pad/stick in neutral position), 
the game will select a quote (from the quotes available for that pose) in 
a specific repeating order, which I've designated as the "neutral select 
order".  The first time during a match that n is used for a pose, the 
first quote in the neutral select order will be used; the second time 
(during the same match) n is used (for the same pose), the second quote 
will be used; etc.  After the final quote is used, the neutral quote 
select will start over with the first quote.  Win quotes listed below will 
be listed in neutral select order.

Gender notes: There are 7 female characters (Cassandra, Ivy, Seung Mina, 
Sophitia, Taki, Talim, Xianghua), and 13 male characters (Astaroth, 
Cervantes, Charade, Heihachi, Kilik, Maxi, Mitsurugi, Necrid, Nightmare, 
Raphael, Voldo, Yoshimitsu, Yunsung).

Necrid and Voldo notes: I haven't bothered to compile quotes for Necrid 
and Voldo; while quotes are listed in their respective Voice lists, 
neither is actually speaking in an intelligible language, so...

III. Weapon Master Mode Stuff
-----------------------------

Name Entry note: The Weapon Master Mode name entry procedure, like the 
high score name entry procedure, does have an offensive word filter in 
play.  So if you get an input error when entering your WMM name, you 
probably unintentionally (hopefully) entered something the game considers 
potentially offensive.

Name Entry note2: The default WMM name (press START without entering 
anything) is "PLAYER".

Note: Chapter maps showing approximate placings of the mission locations 
(stages) will appear at the beginning of each Chapter section, below.

Note2: Display Chapter-opening text
On the World Map, select a chapter with [triangle], and you'll be able to 
re-view (or preview, if you've unlocked the Chapter, but haven't yet 
entered it) the Chapter-opening text for that Chapter.  If necessary, 
press O or [square] to scroll one page down, and [triangle] to scroll one 
page up.  X will cancel back to the World Map.


III.2  The Missions

Mission Data Key:
Chapter-Stage: Exp, Gold
               Unlockables and notes

Note: Exp and Gold listed will be for 1/1; each subsequent completion will 
grant less Exp and Gold, up to a specific minimum (at 5 completions, I 
think); each loss will grant a small amount of Exp and Gold.

Note2: As asterisk (*) will denote a mission that is not unlocked in the 
usual way.

Dungeon Mission Map Key:
  e = entrance/exit
  B = Boss Battle!
  # = #*100 Gold earned

Dungeon note: Dungeon squares (except for the boss battle) can be 
completed more than once without exiting the Dungeon; "maximum" +Gold 
listed for Dungeon missions, however, will assume that each square in the 
dungeon has been completed exactly once.

U/C note on Dungeon square coordinates: An (x,y) coordinate notation will 
be used to specify any weapon unlock locations in a Dungeon, where x is 
the number of spaces right, and y is the number of spaces up from the 
entrance/exit square.

Note on WMM Rival battles: For missions 1-3, 3-2, 7-2, 10-2, and 10-2e, 
your opponent (or boss opponent) is determined by the character you 
selected when you first started WMM (even if you never used that character 
(i.e. by switching to a different character before playing mission 1-1)).  
This opponent is what I'm designating a "WMM Rival".  The Vs. screen of a 
WMM Rival battle will be accompanied by a dramatic music clip, as well as 
a Vs. screen taunt from the WMM Rival.
     Here follows a list of each starting character's WMM Rival.  In all 
cases except for two (each marked with an asterisk (*) below), a starting 
character's WMM rival is the same as his/her/its sub-boss...

U/C notes (mission 4-3e):
     Since a lot of people seem to be having trouble completing mission 
4-3e (which, while not necessary to unlock Subchapter 2, is necessary to 
unlock Lizardman (requires completion of *all* WMM missions), here are 
some tips:
       1) 4-3e special condition: If you Guard Break your opponent, he/she
          will take a *significant* amount of damage.
       2) You can find moves with Guard Break properties by consulting
          your character's in-game Command List.  Also, some moves can
          gain Guard Break properties from a Soul Charge (A+B+K).
       3) Your opponent must be Guarding in order to be Guard Broken
          (thus, Taki, who (in 4-3e) Guards more than the other opponents,
          may actually end up being your easiest opponent!).
     It's certainly possible to complete 4-3e without using a Guard Break 
move (I've had a good amount of success with Talim, utilizing Ring Out 
tactics), but Guard Breaking your opponents definitely makes things a 
whole lot easier.  My best success rate comes from using Astaroth's 
f,f+A(B) (or 8WR-f,A(B)), the second hit of which is a Guard Break...

to unlock Subchapter 2))
(technical note: other possible conditions are: completion of mission 
10-3, or completion of mission 4-5; of course, if you've earned 300000

III.3  Buying Stuff

     Using Gold earned in Weapon Master Mode (and other modes of the 
game), you can purchase extras such as: weapons, outfits, galleries, 
demos, and modes.  Each Chapter has a Shop with a unique inventory, though 
some items are offered at more than one shop (note: price will not vary 
according to location, so don't bother comparison shopping =) ).  If you 
already have an item, it will be marked as "Sold Out".

Note on shop selection: You don't have to enter an area to select its 
shop.  Shops can actually be selected directly from the World Map 
(highlight an area, press the START button, and select "Shop").

Note on saving money: Some purchasable extras are also unlockables (19 
weapons and 1 outfit).  These will be noted below (see the Shop Inventory 
Lists section of this document), for those of you interested in saving 
some Gold along the way.


III.3.A  A note on inflation
         -------------------
     As it turns out, characters that are used more will actually have 
higher prices for their weapons, outfits, and kata (yes, even if another 
character buys them)!  This is based on percentage of usage in *all* modes 
of the game (not just WMM).  These percentages, rounded down to the 
nearest 0.1%, can be found in the "Character Data" section of Records, in 
the Options menu.

   Character Data          Price inflation for that character's items
      0.0% -  5.9% usage     (no increase)
      6.0% - 30.9% usage     +20% (rounded up to the nearest 100)
     31.0% - 60.9% usage     +30% (rounded up to the nearest 100)
     61.0% - 90.9% usage     +50% (rounded up to the nearest 100)
     91.0% - 100.0% usage    +60% (rounded up to the nearest 100)

     So, for example, if your usage percentage for Heihachi were 95%, his 
W2 would cost 1000 (600*1.6=960, rounded up to 1000), his W3 would cost 
1500 (900*1.6=1440, rounded up to 1500), his W4 would cost 2000 
(1200*1.6=1920, rounded up to 2000), etc...

Technical note on percentages: The percentages listed in Character Data 
are rounded down to the nearest 0.1%.  Thus, if a character's usage 
percentage were, for example, 5.9701% (4/67), that would get rounded down 
to 5.9%; and a character usage of 6.0241% (5/83) would get rounded down to 
6.0%.  A percentage of 6.0000% (3/50), however, would not get rounded down 
at all, and would be shown as 6.0%.  Having tested the "exactly 6.0%" 
case, I found that it produced no inflation!  Thus, technically, the above 
inflation ranges should probably read: 0<=n<=6, 6<n<=31, 31<n<=61, 
61<n<=91, and 91<n<=100.  However, due to the fact that in almost all 
cases, Character Data percentages shown as 6.0, 31.0, 61.0, and 91.0 will 
actually belong to the next highest inflation category, I've left the 
ranges as shown in the chart above, in order to reflect what the Character 
Data percentage will most likely show.

A note on avoiding inflation:
     It is actually possible to avoid paying inflated prices by using 
Charade.  Charade has no purchasable character-specific items except for 
his/her/its kata, so after purchasing that, switch to Charade, and 
eventually, the other character(s) you used will fall below 6.0% usage, 
and their items will return to their suggested retail prices.
     Minimal case: 10 character usages are required to unlock Subchapter 
1.  Mission 2-3 requires 3 usages by the same character, so if you use 4 
or more characters, you can keep the highest single-character usage at 3.  
Purchase Charade's kata (4600 Gold) at the Subchapter 1 shop before 
switching to Charade.  Once you've logged 40 usages with Charade (which 
should occur before you've completed mission 10-3), all characters besides 
Charade should be at 6.0% or below (see technical note, above, if you're 
interested in why this 6.0% doesn't get any price increase), and all shop 
prices should have normalized.
     Side note: To calculate the approximate number of Charade usages that 
will be necessary to push all other usage percentages below 6.0, use the 
following calculation: (h = highest single-character usage; t = total 
number of non-Charade character usages)
       (h/0.059)-t


III.3.B  Earning Gold from other game modes
         ----------------------------------
     It is possible to earn Gold from game modes other than WMM.  After 
mission 1-1 has been played (even if you failed it), other modes will 
grant you Gold.  A minimum of 100 Gold is always granted at the "Game 
Over" screen, no matter how badly you do; larger sums can be earned, as 
follows:

  Arcade                      300 per completion
  Time Attack (Standard)      300 per completion
  Time Attack (Alternative)   500 per completion
  Time Attack (Extreme)       800 per completion
  Survival                    200 at 10 wins, +100 for each +5 wins
  Team Battle                 300 per completion

  Extra Arcade                      500 per completion
  Extra Time Attack (Standard)      500 per completion
  Extra Time Attack (Alternative)   800 per completion
  Extra Time Attack (Extreme)      1000 per completion
  Extra Survival (Standard)         200 at 10 wins, +100 for each +5 wins
  Extra Survival (Death Match)      200 at 20 wins, +100 for each +10 wins
  Extra Survival (No Recovery)      200 at 10 wins, +100 for each +5 wins
  Extra Team Battle                 500 per completion

III.3.C  Shop Inventories
         ----------------
     The prices listed below will be the default (uninflated) prices.  
Items that can be unlocked by WMM mission completions will be marked with 
an asterisk (*) and offset by a couple of spaces, to draw attention to 
this fact.  A period (.) will mark items that may not be initially 
availble (unlock the associated character, and the item will show up in 
the shop's inventory).
     U/C note: A plus sign (+) will mark weapons not already marked by an 
asterisk (*) that can be unlocked via WMM Dungeons.  A minus sign (-) will 
mark weapons that can no longer be unlocked by WMM mission completions.

   Astaroth     W9   E1-3  (-3,-3)
   Cassandra   *W9   S4-5  (6,0)
   Cervantes    W5    4-5  (4,2)
   Mitsurugi    W9   S4-5  (8,3)
   Necrid       W9   E2-3  (-9,-5)
   Raphael      W4   S1-1  (3,4)
   Seung Mina  *W7    6-6  (5,1)
                W8   10-2  (6,-1)
   Sophitia     W8   10-2  (5,-4)
   Talim        W4   S1-1  (7,3)

Note about Nightmare's W8 and Raphael's W6: These weapons are unlocked by 
missions that necessarily must be completed before the shops that sell 
them become available.

Note about Xianghua's W4: The Evil SoulCalibur (or Corrupted SoulCalibur, 
if you prefer) is not for sale in any shop.  It must be earned by 
completing mission 5-2.

     And to make mass-purchases of weapons easier, here's a simple list 
detailing which shop(s) contain a full variety of weapons (19 in most 
cases) for each W#:

   Weapons   Shop chapter
    19 W2s    1
    19 W3s    2
    18 W4s    3
    19 W5s    4, 5
    19 W6s    6, 7
    19 W7s    8, 9
    19 W8s    10
    19 W9s    E1
    19 W10s   E2
    19 W11s   S2

     Finally, for those who are interested, here's a chart showing 
standard prices, inflated (60%) prices, differences, and totals for a full 
set of weapons (W2-W11):

   Weapon  normal  inflated  increase

     W2      600   1000      +400

III.3.E  Calculating the cost of everything

     Calculations below will assume that all unlockable purchasables have 
not been purchased, and will also assume no inflation.

III.4  WMM Classes

     For those of you wondering about the rankings beyond Platinum 
Edgemaster, here they are: (Exp numbers have not been tested for minimal 
values; rounded values (below) are assumed to be minimal values needed)

  Lv.  Exp      Class
   75   380000    Platinum Edgemaster
                  Grand Edgemaster of the
   76   400000      Wolf
   77   500000      Basilisk
   78   600000      Gorgon
   79   700000      Gargoyle
   80   800000      Ogre
   81   900000      Minotaur
   82   1000000     Cerberus
   83   1200000     Hydra
   84   1400000     Furies
   85   1600000     Kraken
   86   1800000     Fenrir
   87   2000000     Gryphon
   88   2300000     Pegasus
   89   2600000     Wyvern
   90   2900000     Manticore
   91   3200000     Chimera
   92   3500000     Cyclops
                  GloriousEdgemaster of the
   93   4000000     Seiren
   94   4500000     Efreeti
   95   5000000     Balron
                  Legend Edgemaster of the
   96   5500000     Unicorn
   97   6000000     Dragon
   98   7000000     Phoenix
   99   99999900  Ultimate Counter Stopper

     As far as I know, nothing special is unlocked upon reaching Lv.99.

Side note: For detailed information on Classes below Platinum Edgemaster, 
you should probably consult a Weapon Master Mode FAQ (or perhaps even a 
general FAQ) for this game...

U/C notes: Due to the insertion of "Gold Combatant" at Lv.30, Platinum 
Edgemaster is Lv.76 instead of Lv.75.  Grand Edgemaster of the Wolf seems 
to have been removed; Grand Edgemaster classes begin with Lv.77 Grand 
Edgemaster of the Basilisk (note: I haven't tested past Lv.77, but since 
the rankings have been made to align at Lv.77, it's likely that the rest 
(Lv.78+) will basically follow the above pattern as well...).


U/C notes about the non-Edgemaster classes: Most of the WMM Classes have 
been renamed for some reason.  Here is a list of the original Class names 
and what each has been renamed (or not, as the case may be) as:

  Lv.    Class (J)     Class (U/C)  Lv.
   1      Newcomer       Newcomer    1
   2-6    Peasant        Neophyte    2-6
   7-11   Apprentice     Apprentice  7-11
   12-16  Squire         Disciple    12-16
   17-21  Infantryman    Fighter     17-21
   22-26  Soldier        Battler     22-26
   27-30  Knight         Combatant   27-31
   31-35  Lieutenant     Duelist     32-36
   36-40  Captain        Mercenary   37-41
   41-45  Colonel        Warrior     42-46
   46-50  General        Knight      47-51

IV.2  The replay camera

     For rounds that your character wins, you will actually have control 
over the replay camera, as follows (note: the two zoom functions seem to 
be assigned to fixed buttons on the controller, but the other two 
button-based functions are not...):
         up/down      Rotate camera vertically
        left/right    Rotate camera horizontally
         [square]     Zoom in
        [triangle]    Zoom out
            K         Toggle focus from one character to the other
            G         Slow down replay (while button is held down)
           d,u        Camera moves to overhead position (tap u to cancel,
                        or d to move camera to floor-level)
           u,d        Camera moves to floor-level position (tap d to
                        cancel (character's face will be closer than
                        normal), or u to move camera to overhead)

     GC note: Zoom out and Zoom in have been assigned fixed buttons (Y and 
X, respectively).  Unfortunately, the default button config (Types A and 
B) assigns the K button to the X key.  Thus, using the default button 
config, one will be unable to Zoom in without also switching the character 
focus.  =/

     U/C note: the "overhead" and "underfoot" codes appear to have been 
removed.


IV.3  Character Profile stuff

     Just a few undocumented extras in the Character Profile section of 
Museum mode...

     Main menu:
        L1/L2   Rotate character 90 degrees to his/her/its right
        R1/R2   Rotate character 90 degrees to his/her/its left

     Stage:
        L1/L2   Toggles text window off or on

     Voice:
        L1/L2   Temporarily displays the Character Voice credit for the
                  character (Charade has no Voice option (Charade has no
                  voice), and the Necrid and Voldo CVs are "Unknown", if
                  anybody was curious)


IV.4  The title screen(s)

     There are actually three different title screens in the game.  The 
following are (as far as I can tell) the conditions required for each:

        1) Evil SoulCalibur against cloudy blue background
           - (no conditions; initially available)
        2) 16 Character portraits
           - number of Collection History items obtained + number of
             special (W2-W11) weapons obtained >= 110
        3) Weapons against background of stages
           - All weapons obtained (190, not including default weapons),
             and complete Collection History (83)


IV.5  "SoulCalibur Two" and "Namco" voices

     The voice that speaks "SoulCalibur Two" at the title screen and 
"Namco" at the Namco screen isn't always the announcer's voice.  The game 
characters (yes, even Voldo and Necrid and, if anybody was wondering, 
Heihachi too) will actually sometimes say these instead.
     I don't think there's a way to select a specific character, but from 
observation, it does seem that the character at the top of one's Character 
Data chart (Options, Records) may actually have a higher chance of being 
selected to say "SoulCalibur Two" initially after each time the game is 
loaded.


IV.6  Wall-assisted flip-jumps

     For anybody who's interested, here follows a listing of the wall flip 
moves I've encountered:

     Taki
       d,db,b, (u/d) (towards wall), (u/d) (towards wall, when hitting
         wall)
       or 8WR(A+K), u/d, u/d
         - jumps 90 degrees away (directly left or directly right,
           depending upon which way the wall isn't) from opponent.
         - pressing an attack button while wall flipping will result in
           Taki performing an attack upon landing, as follows:
             A: A=f
             B: f,f+B
             K: f,f+K

     Talim
       (8WR-u/uf/ub/d/df/db)([B+K]) (8WR must be done towards a nearby
         wall)
       or 8WR(B+K), B+K
         - jumps 90 degrees away (directly left or directly right,
           depending upon which way the wall isn't) from opponent.
         - seems to be an evasive-only move

     Voldo
       during face-up quadripedal stance (f+[B+K] (or b+[B+K] when back is
         turned)): b (hit wall) (holding direction not necessary)
         - jumps towards opponent
         - even a slow b creep will trigger the wall flip
         - landing on opponent causes damage
         - bug: back turned, next to wall, b+[B+K] can result in feet in
           contact with wall; f will result in jumping towards the wall,
           instead of the opponent.

     Xianghua
       while rising from crouch, with back to wall: [K] or K, K
         - jumps towards opponent
         - landing on opponent causes damage
       with back to wall: ub+[K] or ub+K, K
         - jumps towards opponent
         - landing on opponent causes damage


IV.7  Pre-battle announcer quotes

     Each character has two quotes the announcer uses to describe

    Watched over by the Almighty Ones, they unleash their fury.

     And for anybody who's curious, here are the pre-battle announcer 
quotes for Link (GC) and Spawn (XB):

  Link
    He quests for peace and harmony.
    His courage and faith are his greatest weapons.
  Spawn
    A messenger from Hell cometh.
    With sorrow and anger hidden behind his mask, he stands his ground.


IV.8  Auto-load and auto-save

     SoulCalibur II has an auto-load process, but do note that it only 
works with the P1 slot (note: even manual loading cannot be done from the 
P2 memory card slot).
     SoulCalibur II also has an auto-save process, which similarly only 
works with the P1 slot (note: even manual saving cannot be done to the P2 
memory card slot).  The Auto-save feature defaults to ON (if a memory card 
is detected and you create a save file), and can be located in the Save & Load 
section of the Options menu.


IV.9  Soft reset

     SoulCalibur II uses a simple 2-button reset, which can be done from 
either contrller (P1 or P2).  Just press SELECT+START or SELECT(START) or 
START(SELECT) to reset the game back to the title screen.
