===============
2.0 AUTHOR INFO
===============
I've been playing VS games for quite some time now, (ever since I got my PS), 
and I've always admired how Capcom managed
to make such great titles all the time. If you guys are ever in Bishan area, 
come down to the Home United Fan Club and 
maybe you'll see me there!



==================
3.0 CHARACTER INFO
==================
Ever since his first appearance in Super Street fighter II turbo, Akuma (or 
Gouki in Japan) promised to be more than just
your average character, and he did, that is, until the street fighters went 
against the xmen, or marvel or etc, He seemed 
to have just become an average all rounder.
Thanks goodness Capcom decided to upgrade him a little in Marvel VS Capcom 2, 
not only has his speed increased, but his
power as well.

5.0 MOVES LIST
==============

Special moves
-------------

Asura warp Forward
F, D, DF + KK or PP
It is possible to warp past hyper combos but where you stop is another thing.
Asura warp Back
B, D, DB + KK or PP

Gou Hadouken
D, DF, F + P   
Your basic projectile attack, don't bother using it against iceman, cable or etc

Gou Shouryuken
F, D, DF + P
Great anti-air attack for those jump-ins

Tatsumaki Zankuu Kyaku (can be done in air)
D, DB, B + K
Can be cancelled into his Messatsu Zankuu Hadou on ground or in air.
Can go into an OTG with the hk.

Tenma Kuujin Kyaku
In Mid-Air, D, DF, F + K
Use this once in a while to suprise your opponent.

Zankuu Hadouken
In Mid-Air, D, DF, F + P   
Once again, don't use this too often against beamers, it is quite useful, 
though.


Hyper combos
------------

Messatsu Gou Hadou
D, DB, B + PP
Akuma fires a massive flow of energy in a horizontal thrust.

Messatsu Gou Shouryuu
D, DF, F + PP
Three Shoryukens, sending the victim in flames into the sky.
If you miss, you are totally vulnerable in your way down.

Messatsu Gou Rasen
D, DF, F + KK
Connection into this is a little tricky, 
Akuma does a hurricane kick vertically ending in a slamming kick.

Tenma Zankuu Hadou
In Mid-Air, D, DF, F + PP
Akuma fires massive numbers of fireballs in a diagonal fashion.
can be cancelled from his hurricane kick.

Shun Goku Satsu (Tian)

Requires and uses 3 Hyper Combo levels 
(If anyone has a method of connecting this move please let me know!)


Assist Type
-----------


Alpha: Shooting Attack - Gou Hadouken / Messatsu Gou Hadou
Beta:  Air Attack - Gou Shouryuken / Messatsu Gou Shouryuu
Gamma: Movement Attack - Tatsumaki Zankuu Kyaku / Messatsu Gou Rasen
use this, while his hurricane kick is hitting, you can land a couple of hits of 
your own 
as well as start an air combo.


Aerial Rave Launchers
---------------------

d+hp



==========
5.1 COMBOS
==========

Akuma was never really good at combos, making him rely on his powerful special 
moves.
Perhaps this is a weakness, but it can be counteracted by stringing 
punches/kicks into special moves.
As a result, his combos are simple yet effective.

Please send in any combos that aren't here to Negativedge@ignmail.com


D+LK => D, DF, F + PP

D+LK => D, DB, B + HK => XX D, DF, F + PP

D+HP => Messatsu Gou Rasen


Dash forward, D + LK => D + HP => SJ => LP => D, DB, B + HK XX  D, DF, F + PP
You should wait for the hurricane kick to connect at least 3 times before 
cancelling

Dash forward, D + LK => D + LK => D, DB, B + HK => OTG D+LK =>  D, DB, B + HK XX 
D, DF, F + PP

Dash forward, D + LK => D + LK => D + HP => SJ => LP => LK => LP => D, DB, B + 
HK XX  D, DF, F + PP

Dash forward, D + LK => D + LK => D, DB, B + HK => OTG D+LK => D + HP => SJ =>
