1.0     Introduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soul Calibur II is the highly anticipated sequel to Soul Calibur, which is 
still regarded as one of the best fighting games of all time. I noticed that 
Gamefaqs did not have a full FAQ/Movelist for the console versions of Soul 
Calibur II, and since I needed one for my own website (www.blood-sports.net) 
anyway, I decided to get cracking on one. So, after much wailing and gnashing 
of teeth, this guide was born.

3.0     About the game 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soul Calibur II doesn't stray too much from the original formula as most of the 
gameplay has been left intact and hasn't changed much. Unlike the original 
which was only ported to the Sega Dreamcast, the sequel has been ported to 
three systems, the Nintendo Gamecube, Sony Playstation 2 and Microsoft Xbox, 
each has a unique special guest character. Which version you play is entirely 
up to you, so get out there and enjoy one of the best fighting games, if not 
THE best fighting game released in 2003!

4.0     What's in this guide?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This guide is intended to be a full Character Movelist and FAQ for Soul Calibur 
II. 

What this guide covers:

- Instructions on how to unlock the unlockable characters
- Complete Character Move Lists
- Short description of each character and their fighting style

What this guide does NOT cover:

- Anything to do with Weapon Master Mode (aside from unlocking the unlockable 
characters)
- Unlocking all the galleries, battle theatres etc...
- A description of the physical appearance of each character
- A description of each battle arena
- A description of the attributes of each weapon
- A description of each of the different game modes (original and extra)
- A List of the available unlockable weapons for each character
- Complete Character Profiles
- Anything (and I mean ANYTHING) you will find in the instruction manual. 
Seriously guys, everything from Soul Charges to Guard Impacts are explained in 
there, so if you are after explanations on those techniques, look there first. 
If you don't have a manual because you've rented the game or have a second
hand copy, I advise you find one somewhere. If you don't have a manual
because you have an illegal copy of the game, I express no sympathy for you.

If you have any questions about this FAQ, feel free to e-mail me at the address 
specified at the top of this document. But, if you e-mail me just to insult or 
criticise, or about anything that appears in the "What this guide does NOT 
cover" list, or your question is already answered in this FAQ somewhere, it'll 
be going straight into my Trash. Capiche? So, if you don't get an answer within 
a day or two, I advise you to have a closer look through the FAQ.

5.0     Unlocking the Unlockables
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There's a total of eight unlockable characters in the NTSC/PAL versions of Soul 
Calibur II. They are:

Charade
Sophitia
Yoshimitsu
Cervantes
Seung Mina
Berserker
Assassin
Lizardman

Each can be unlocked by finishing certain missions in Weapon Master Mode. Which 
missions, you ask? These ones, I boldly answer!

These are listed in the order you will probably unlock them:

Yoshimitsu - Sucessfully complete chapter 2 mission 3.
Charade - Successfully complete chapter 3 mission 1.
Cervantes - Successfully complete chapter 3 mission 4.
Sophitia - Successfully complete chapter 4 mission 5.
Seung Mina - Successfully complete chapter 6 mission 3.
Berserker - Successfully complete Subchapter 1 mission 1 (second play through).
Assassin - Successfully complete Subchapter 3 mission 2.
Lizardman - Successfully complete ALL Chapters (including Subchapters and Extra 
Chapters). To do this you will need to finish EVERY mission at least twice. 

***A note on unlocking Lizardman***

I've received several e-mails asking how to unlock Lizardman. For those of you
who don't know what 'successfully completing ALL chapters' means...it means 
EXACTLY that. You must complete EVERY chapter. This means you must finish 
every mission at least twice. INCLUDING the missions within Subchapter 2 which
many people miss when playing Weapon Master Mode. To unlock Subchapter 2, you 
must have completed all the other missions in the game and be at level 76 or 
higher. You won't acquire this level simply through normal playing though. 
Once you have finished all the available missions twice, you'll find that you 
will be several levels short of 76, so you'll need to go back and redo some of 
them to build up enough experience to reach at least level 76. Once you are 
at level 76 or higher, go back and complete Chapter 4 Mission 3 again. If 
you are at level 76 or higher, this will open the path to Subchapter 2. To 
unlock Lizardman, you must complete Subchapter 2 completely (meaning finish 
all four missions within Subchapter 2 twice just like you needed to do in 
the other chapters).

Now that I have addressed that, please do not send me any more e-mails asking 
this, or they will be ignored.
 

PLEASE NOTE:

I have received several e-mails asking how to unlock Heihachi, Spawn and Link.
If you are thinking of sending me an e-mail about it, then read this:

- Heihachi is EXCLUSIVE to the Playstation 2 version, you CAN NOT use him on the
XBox or Gamecube
- Spawn is EXCLUSIVE to the XBox version, you CAN NOT use him on the 
Playstation 2 or Gamecube
- Link is EXCLUSIVE to the Gamecube version, you CAN NOT use him on the
Playstation 2 or XBox

Now that I have made that perfectly clear, please DO NOT send me e-mails asking 
how to unlock these characters on the consoles they don't appear on. I will
ignore you if you do.


6.0     Control Conventions
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6.1 CONSOLE SPECIFIC DEFAULT BUTTON CONVERSIONS

First off...the console specific default button conversions. You really 
shouldn't need these since they are explained in the instruction manual, but 
this is just for completeness sake.

Gamecube:

A ... A Button
B ... Y Button
K ... X Button
G ... B Button

Playstation 2:

A ... Square Button
B ... Triangle Button
K ... Circle Button
G ... X Button

Xbox:

A ... X Button
B ... Y Button
K ... B Button
G ... A Button

6.2 IN-GAME AND FAQ CONTROL CONVENTIONS

First off I should explain why I have decided to adopt this notation. The 
reason is, quite frankly, the more "accepted" notation, for a lack of a better 
word, sucks (In my opinion, anyway). You want a straight forward moves list, 
not some encoded crap full of numbers and abbreviations that makes you need to 
scroll back up to where the author explained the notation just so you actually
know how to read a move (let alone understand it). No...just...no. 

This is my own notation, and I believe it's much easier to read and much easier 
to understand than the other method. It's nice and consistent, it's more to the 
point, and there's no confusing numbers or abbreviations anywhere. Yes, I won't 
deny that it took me a long time to write this FAQ using this convention. But 
hell, I reckon you'll have a much easier time reading and understanding it. 
You're welcome to e-mail me with any comments about it.

Basic Attacks:

A ... Horizontal Strike
B ... Vertical Strike
K ... Kick
G ... Guard

[A] ... Hold Horizontal Strike
[B] ... Hold Vertical Strike
[K] ... Hold Kick
[G] ... Hold Guard

Slide Inputs:

aA ... Double Tap A very quickly
aB ... Slide from A onto B quickly
aK ... Slide from A onto K quickly
bA ... Slide from B onto A quickly
bB ... Double Tap B very quickly
bK ... Slide from B onto K quickly
kA ... Slide from K onto A quickly
kB ... Slide from K onto B quickly
kK ... Double Tap K very quickly

You may also see extended variations on these such as agA or b^B. Common sense 
would tell you that it means to slide from A to G to A quickly or to tap B then 
Direction Up then B very quickly (respectively). Adapt to the situation, 
although there isn't many cases in the FAQ where you'll see something like 
this, but make a mental note of it anyway.

Movement Directions:

* ... Keep Neutral
-> ... Towards Opponent
<- ... Away from Opponent
^ ... Up
v ... Down
\> ... Diagonal Down/Towards
</ ... Diagonal Down/Away
<\ ... Diagonal Up/Away
/> ... Diagonal Up/Towards

[->] ... Hold Towards Opponent
[<-] ... Hold Away from Opponent
[^] ... Hold Up
[v] ... Hold Down
[\>] ... Hold Diagonal Down/Towards
[</] ... Hold Diagonal Down/Away
[<\] ... Hold Diagonal Up/Away
[/>] ... Hold Diagonal Up/Towards

Miscellaneous: 

, ... Press the button or directions in sequence. E.g. Double tapping Towards 
then A would appear ->, ->, A
+ ... Press buttons together. E.g. Pressing A and B together would be shown A+B
~ ... Means the move sets up into another (usually changing stance, combining 
more than one move or moving into Guard Break)
(Alternative) ... An Alternative way to perform a previously listed move
(Delay) ... Wait slightly longer between attack button presses for that move
(Cancel) ... Begins the move, then cancels that move before it fully completes
(Hold) ... One or more buttons in the move are held down to make the move more 
powerful than it otherwise would be
(Extended) ... An extended version of a previously listed move (usually meaning 
more hits or the move goes on for longer)
(Additional Attack) ... Another attack that can be executed after a previously 
listed move before the opponent can recover

If an alternate button or direction can be pressed, it will appear in 
parentheses () after the first button or direction

7.0     Complete Character Movelist
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ahhh, the reason you are reading the guide. You'll notice there are several 
things listed for each character. I'll take a moment to explain what these are. 
I have a short description of the character, which is my own personal opinion 
of the character. I'll outline some strengths and weaknesses and try to point
out if the character is good for you with your current skill level at the game. 
Following that are the movelists. "A Attacks" are those attacks where 'A' 
(Horizontal Strike) is the first attack hit. "B Attacks" are those attacks 
where 'B' (Vertical Strike) is the first attack hit. "K Attacks" are those 
attacks where 'K' (Kick) is the first attack hit. "Throws" are...errr...throws, 
and "Misc" are moves that don't fall into the above categories (normally 
requiring a stance change or a complicated attack sequence).

I've ordered the characters in the way they appear on the character select 
grid, reading left to right, top to bottom:

              Link /
Mitsurugi   Heihachi /  Necrid      Taki
              Spawn

Talim       Cassandra   Yunsung     Raphael


Kilik       Xianghua    Maxi        Yoshimitsu


Charade     Nightmare   Ivy         Cervantes


Sophitia    Astaroth    Voldo       Seung Mina


Lizardman   (Random)    Assassin    Berserker

Note: Lizardman, Assassin and Berkserker can only be used in the two-player 
modes, practice mode and team battle mode. They can not be used in other modes.


7.1 Mitsurugi
****************
A well rounded character, Mitsurugi is for both average and expert players. He 
has a lot of moves and a number of different stances, and is a good balance 
between speed and strength. He wasn't the pin-up boy in the original Soul 
Calibur for nothing, he's a very solid character.

Strengths:

Strong hits, stances are not too confusing, plenty of ways to fool the opponent

Weaknessess:

A little slow, not a huge variety in moves and high/low mixups

7.2 Link
****************

Link can be a little awkward to use at first since his style is somewhat 
different to the regular Soul Calibur cast. Unlike the other fighters, he has 
projectiles, and not just one, but three of them, each with a different use. 
Links works pretty well at any range, but some of his stronger moves are easily 
avoided or countered. Once you have his unique fighting style mastered though, 
you'll be hard to beat.

Note: Link ONLY appears in the Gamecube version. You CAN NOT use him in the
Playstation 2 or XBox versions.

Strengths:

Fast, agile, and good at almost any distance. Some strong moves and three 
projectiles.

Weaknesses:

Stronger hits are easy to evade or counter, projectiles leave him vulnerable if 
they miss.

7.3 Heihachi
****************

Heihachi is a really in your face character for obvious reasons, fighting with 
his fists (or more correctly, his wrist guards). Unlike other in your face 
characters like Talim and Taki however, Heihachi is slower and stronger and 
these facts put him in a class of his own. He has some strong hits and decent 
combos and is at his most threatening when continually on the offensive.

Note: Heihachi ONLY appears in the Playstation 2 version. You CAN NOT use him
in the Gamecube or XBox versions.

Strengths:

Strong and close range. Lots of moves to keep the opponent guessing and force 
them into evasive rather that countering strategies.

Weaknesses:

Not good at mid to far range or against faster characters.

7.4 Spawn
****************

Spawn is big and powerful, but not as slow as Astaroth or Berserker. He's still 
a mid range to far range fighter however and isn't comfortable against quicker 
and more nimble characters, although he does have some surprisingly quick moves 
that you wouldn't expect a character of that size to have. Having said that, if 
you can keep empty space between yourself and your opponent, and utilise his 
Levitation moves well, Spawn is a real badass who is very difficult to beat.

Note: Spawn ONLY appears in the Xbox version. You CAN NOT use him in the
Gamecube or Playstation 2 versions.

Strengths:

Devastating at mid range, lots of quick but strong moves.

Weaknesses:

Can't quite cope with faster characters.

7.5 Necrid
****************

Necrid's a strange one alright. He's basically an amalgamation of a lot of the 
other characters...his throws and moves resemble throws and moves other 
characters have (he kind of borrows one or two moves from a variety of 
characters). He does however have his own unique moves as well and in the hands 
of a master can be virtually unstoppable. He's also a quite broken character
at high level gameplay and is banned in most serious tournaments.

Strengths:

A good mix of powerful and fast moves. Lots of mixups. Overpowerful at high 
level.

Weaknesses:

A little slow sometimes, basically no unblockable attacks.

7.6 Taki
****************

A very fast and agile fighter, Taki is perfect for those players who like being 
in the opponent's face. She has a good variety of attacks as well as some 
pretty useful longer distance moves, making her extremely unpredictable. Make 
sure you utilise her high/low mixups as much as possible to take full advantage 
of her close range speed.

Strengths:

Fast attacks, good evade-and-counter moves.

Weaknesses:

A bit predictable, not many moves that can hit enemy on the ground.

7.7 Talim
****************

Talim is another character that has the advantage of speed. She's not quite as 
fast as Taki but makes up for this with a few strong moves and relatively 
longer combos. Because her weapons are short and her attacks are quick, you 
need to make sure you are in your opponent's face constantly, but because 
Talim's so agile, this shouldn't be a problem for experienced players.

Strengths:

Fast, agile and has some very useful stronger attacks. Good high/low mixups.

Weaknesses:

More powerful moves leave your very prone to attack if avoided.

7.8 Cassandra
****************

At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking she's a Sophitia clone but in 
actual fact Cassandra is very different from her sister. She has some good 
strong moves and isn't too slow either. She's an ideal character for beginners 
but also possesses some great attacks for the experts to take advantage of.

Strengths:

Good at mid to close range, good variety of strong and quick attacks.

Weaknesses:

Not much variety in high/low mixups, can be a bit predictable.

7.9 YunSung
****************

YunSung is another good character for beginners, but offers enough depth for 
the experts to really take advantage of as well. He's got a good mix of strong 
and fast attacks as well as some pretty good long distance moves. You can 
choose how to play with YunSung, either up in the opponent's face or keep your 
distance slightly, his style accommodates for both.

Strengths:

Good at almost any distance, has many moves to catch the opponent off-guard.

Weaknesses:

Not a whole of lot moves that have practical use.

7.10 Raphael
****************

Another new addition to Soul Calibur II, Raphael is a swashbuckling expert. He 
can be a little difficult to use because he has many alternative ways to 
execute moves and some pretty confusing stances, and therefore is really a 
character for the average to expert player. He has okay speed, but has pretty 
long reach with that sword of his.

Strengths:

Quick, strong, good high/low mixups and has a long reach when throwing.

Weaknesses:

Lots of confusing stances that don't have much of a practical use.

7.11 Kilik
****************

Kilik has incredible reach with his Bo and can dish out a lot of pain very 
quickly. He's a good combination of speed and strength and has some of the best 
juggles in the game. Try to stay on the offensive as much as you can when using 
Kilik, even though he has some good defensive counters you should be trying to 
use his attacking counters more.

Strengths:

Fast, strong, good at mid to far range, decent at close range, good variety of 
high and low attacks.

Weaknesses:

Not a huge amount of powerful moves that can be used reliably in a fight.

7.12 Xianghua
****************

Xianghua is basically the female answer to Yunsung in the fact that she has an 
average length sword and has good speed and manoeuvrability. She's not as 
strong as Yunsung but is more agile and can dish out some pretty mean damage in 
the hands of an experienced player. Beginners may find her a little awkward at 
first but she's a great character to learn the game basics with.

Strengths:

Nice high/low variety in attacks, easy to confuse opponent with disguised 
moves.

Weaknesses:

Not many stronger moves.

7.13 Maxi
****************

Maxi is an expert's player, no doubt about it. His style is very different from 
the regular SCII cast, and it's difficult to time his moves correctly as he 
swings his nunchackas around quite a bit after executing a given attack. Having 
said that, if you can get your timing correct with him, he's an extremely 
difficult character to beat, being very fast and unpredictable.

Strengths:

Extremely quick, very strong, excellent high/low mixup game and good at any 
distance.

Weaknesses:

Difficult to control, some stronger moves are easily avoided.

7.14 Yoshimistu
****************

Yoshimitsu is another strange character, possessing some out of the ordinary 
attacks and attack styles. Beginners should really avoid him, he's really 
reserved for average to expert players. If you do use him, take advantage of 
his somewhat weird stances to really confuse the hell out of your opponent.

Strengths:

Easy to confuse opponent, can force opponent to stay on the offensive, good 
countering game.

Weaknesses:

Can be a little awkward, most powerful moves are too easily avoided.

7.15 Charade
****************

Well, not much to write about Charade. Each round he acquires the weapons and 
moves of a random character, so you'll need to recognize the stance he's in and 
the weapon he's carrying and then just refer to the appropriate section of this 
FAQ. Charade does NOT imitate Necrid, Inferno, Lizardman, Assassin, Berserker, 
Link, Heihachi or Spawn, nor does he have his own exclusive moves. Needless to 
say, you'll want to be pretty competent with all the regular characters before 
you start to use Charade on a regular basis.

Strengths:

The strengths of the character he is imitating.

Weaknesses:

The weaknesses of the character he is imitating.

7.16 Nightmare
****************

The big mean dude himself, Nightmare in one of the strongest characters in the 
game and is also pretty good for beginners. Experts however will find much more 
use for him with his multiple stances and very damaging hits. His reach is also 
very good because his Soul Edge sword is so big. He's got a lot of power under 
that armour, unleash at will.

Strengths:

Extremely strong, very good at mid range, stances are punishing when used 
properly.

Weaknesses:

Not comfortable against faster characters, stronger moves are easily avoided 
and leave him vulnerable, can be predictable.

7.17 Ivy
****************

Isabella Valentine, or Ivy as she prefers to be known as has the longest reach 
in the game with her snake sword. Some of her moves can literally stretch 
across almost the full screen length when both players are as far apart as 
possible (almost). She deals out pretty heavy punishment too. Her weakness is 
that she isn't very comfortable against players who like to be in the 
opponent's face, so if you are playing as Ivy, try and keep your distance and 
dish out the damage from there.

Strengths:

Devastating at almost any range, huge attack radius, a lot of powerful attacks

Weaknesses:

Takes some time to execute her more powerful attacks, not 100% comfortable 
against faster opponents.

7.18 Cervantes
****************

The big old ghost pirate dude is back and badder than ever. He's a character 
for the average to expert player, for sure, although beginners could find him a 
little easier to pick up than someone like Mitsurugi. He's got some very strong 
moves plus several distance attacks. He's a great character to stay on the 
offensive with, especially with his attack counters.

Strengths:

Plenty of powerful moves, a clever high/low mixup game, good at mid to close 
range, plenty of counters.

Weaknesses:

Can become a little predictable, is a little slow.

7.19 Sophitia
****************

One of the classic fighters, Sophitia returns in Soul Calibur II has one of the 
unlockables this time around. By and large she hasn't changed much since the 
original Soul Calibur, with all of her classic moves intact as well as some new 
ones to spice her up a bit. She isn't a bad choice for beginners, and experts 
should be able to exploit her high/low mixups with devastating effect.

Strengths:

Good high/low mixups, some strong combos and moves.

Weaknesses:

A little slow, not a huge variety in attacks.

7.20 Astaroth
****************

The big hulking huge axe-wielding guy himself makes a triumphant return in 
SCII. Astaroth hasn't changed much since the last instalment which will no 
doubt please old school fans of the series, he's still as big and as powerful 
as ever. His shortfall is that he's not brilliant at close quarters combat, so 
keep your distance. He has incredible reach and strength and plenty of powered 
up "fire" moves at his disposal. Use them wisely grasshopper. Not really for 
the beginners.

Strengths:

Lots of powerful moves that are difficult to avoid, lots of throws, excellent 
at mid to far range.

Weaknesses:

Slow, not comfortable against faster characters.

7.21 Voldo
****************

Voldo has got to be the strangest character in the game by a long shot, he's 
very different from the rest of the cast. Beginners should avoid him like the 
plague, to master Voldo you'll need to invest quite a bit of time into it. If 
you can master him though he's an extremely strong character with no real 
weaknesses apart from his awkwardness.

Strengths:

Very confusing attack patterns, unpredictability, some very strong attacks

Weaknesses:

Awkward to use, some attacks can be avoided too easily

7.22 Seung Mina
****************

The female staff wielding character, Seung Mina makes a welcome return in Soul 
Calibur II. Although she possess some similar moves to Kilik, she's also got a 
pretty unique moveset that makes her distinctly different. She isn't a bad 
choice for beginners, and such is the case with just about all the characters, 
experts can really dish out damage with her awesome juggles and a good variety 
of powerful moves.

Strengths:

Excellent juggles, great at mid range, lots of moves to keep opponent guessing.

Weaknesses:

A little slow, some moves not as powerful as they could potentially be.

7.23 Lizardman
****************

Yeah! Lizardman makes a very welcome return in the NTSC/PAL versions of Soul 
Calibur II as a special unlockable character. Unfortunately he can only be used 
in the two player modes, team battle or practice...but, oh well. He's basically 
a combination of Cassandra and Sophitia with some of his own moves thrown in 
for good measure.

Strengths:

Good variety of high and low attacks, some strong moves and damaging combos

Weaknesses:

Somewhat slow, stronger moves can be avoided a bit too easily, not comfortable 
against distance players

Note: These are not the official move names as there is no in-game movelist for 
Lizardman. I've just used the name of the identical move that Cassandra or 
Sophitia have, and made up my own for Lizardman's exclusive moves.

7.24 Assassin
****************

Assassin is another special unlockable character exclusive to the NTSC/PAL 
versions of Soul Calibur II. Like Lizardman, he seems to possess moves from two 
other characters in the game, in Assassin's case it's Yunsung and Xianghua. 
However Assassin doesn't borrow as many moves as Lizardman does and actually 
possesses a pretty unique moveset overall. Like Lizardman, Assassin can only be 
used in the two player modes, team battle or practice.

Strengths:

Some very strong attacks, quick counters and damaging throws

Weaknesses:

Combos are not very powerful and can be easily interrupted

Note: These are not the official move names as there is no in-game movelist for 
Assassin. I've just used the name of the identical move that Yunsung or 
Xianghua have, and made up my own for Assassin's exclusive moves.

7.25 Berserker
****************

Berserker is the third special unlockable character in the NTSC/PAL versions of 
Soul Calibur II, although unlike Lizardman and Assassin, there really isn't 
anything "special" about him. He's basically an exact replica of Astaroth with 
a few small changes. He doesn't have as many moves and throws as Astaroth, and 
only has a handful of his own exclusive moves. Because of this Berserker is 
probably the least interesting character in SCII. Like Lizardman and Assassin, 
Berkserker can only be used in the two player modes, team battle or practice.

Strengths:

Many powerful moves that are difficult to avoid, very damaging throws

Weaknesses:

Slow, not comfortable against faster characters, not many original moves

Note: These are not the official move names as there is no in-game movelist for 
Berserker. I've just used the name of the identical move that Astaroth has, and 
made up my own for Berkserker's exclusive moves.

Namco, for making such an awesome fighting game!
Nyawu aka The Wu 2003 aka Christopher C. Wu for allowing me to use and adapt 
his excellent Heihachi FAQ
AceStanley for giving me permission to use and adapt his great Spawn FAQ
My two brothers who make the multiplayer much more fun, I wouldn't be anywhere 
near as good at the game without them to play against
Myself, for spending all those hours writing this FAQ! (Especially manually 
working out the movelists for Lizardman, Assassin and Berserker, damn that was 
painful)
