1. Introduction
=============================================================================
Hello, and welcome to my Helena FAQ. This FAQ is used for Dead Or Alive 
Xtreme Beach Volleyball or DOA: XBV for the Xbox. This FAQ is mainly focused 
on Helena so don't be surprised it's not Kasumi's FAQ or something O_O.

DOA: XBV is all about the DOA girls, volleyball, and swimsuits. (with a few 
more extras: accessories, relationships, which I will explain later) As the 
story goes, Zack won the Dead Or Alive 3 tournament (which is highly 
unbelieveable). He used his winnings at the casino -more specifically: 
Roulette- and bet all his winnings on one spot, and the ball landed on the 
number 0 (beating the 2.63% odds) and he won so big, that he decided to buy 
his own tropical island. Then, he sent out invitations for a DOA4 tournament, 
but of course, it's not. He only sent invitations to the girls, and the plane 
that sent them there won't come for another 2 weeks, so they're stuck on the 
island. To pass the time, they play volleyball. 

Now, let's continue with the rest of the FAQ.

3. At The Volleyball Court
=============================================================================
Helena is a very useful character. Helena, although is not a Tina can be as 
dangerous as Tina. She has enough power to knock most people down, is a good 
blocker, and she can manipulate the ball as so you'll just jump for it at 
some other end of the court. We take an in-depth look at her skills in this 
section.

=============================================================================
3.a Playing Helena
=============================================================================
a)	Power: **
Helena has a good amount of power which is enough to knock down 2/3 blocks. 
Of course, to do that, you have to have good timing with your spikes. This is 
essential since each perfect spike is a potential point and is one of the 2 
keys for perfect volleyball games. So, how DO you time your spikes perfectly?
Well, when you want to spike, you'll notice if you don't press the button for 
awhile, you'll reach the pinnacle of your jump. Once you start to fall 
immediately press the Attack button hard. Then, the ball should have an 
afterimage following it, that's a perfect spike!! 

For jump serves, there's another way to tell. I noticed when you jump, your  
hand in front of you will be open, but once it's gonna be a perfect spike, 
it'll become a fist. As soon as you see this, press the Attack button hard.  

b) Technique: ***
She won't rival Kasumi or Ayane, but she'll pack a challenge if your foe 
doesn't  keep an eye on every corner of the court. They'll just jump for it, 
but then........it's too late!!!! The ball has zoomed off somewhere into the 
background. What's technique? You ask. Technique is that second key to 
perfect games. It's the ability to manipulate the direction the ball is going 
to move. How would you manipulate the ball's direction then? Well, either 
through the d-pad or the joysticks. I prefer the d-pad since the joysticks 
can be a little unpredictable. Pressing back or forward would make the ball 
go near or far. Up or down would make the ball zoom up and down. Pressing in 
between each major direction would cause the direction to go both. For 
example: Pressing Up/Forward would make the ball go up and far.

c) Defense: ****
Although this is where Helena is the best at, I wouldn't recommend blocking. 
Then again, it is a Helena FAQ, I guess I'll have to explain. To make a 
block:
Press A at the net. To make a block successful: Make sure the spiker DOES 
spike, positioning yourself correctly and timing the block correctly. I do 
not how to time the block correctly because I don't block all the time. The 
foe will eventually feint, so make sure your partner is right behind you 
ready to catch the ball if the block fails. Anyone who has any blocking tips 
please email me. However, I do know how to defend against blocks.
=============================================================================
3.b Defense Against Blocks
=============================================================================
When you're gonna spike, then someone is blocking you. You have 2 options:
1. Feint your spike (I recommend this option).
2. Continue your spike as normal.

When you feint, the ball will still go over the net, but it's soft enough 
that it won't be detected. This is safe because you won't be affected by the 
block. It's possible to score a point by feinting of course. To do a feint, 
press the Attack button softly.

If you however, continue with the spike there are 2 outcomes and a few sub-
outcomes:
1. The block was unsuccessful
   1.a You scored and knocked the gal down.
   1.b You knocked the gal down but the ball went back into your court.
   1.c You disarmed the gal and the ball zoomed toward the sand.
   1.d You disarmed the gal and the ball went into your court.
2. The block was successful
   2.a She blocked successfully and the ball is zooming toward the sand.
   2.b She blocked successfully but the ball went to the backcourt "slowly".
There's another outcome but it doesn't fit into either category.

3. You disarmed/knocked down the gal but it hit the net, your own goal.
How to determine each outcome is by making the spike a perfect, delaying the 
spike slightly, or (if it's a backspike) aim the ball somewhere else. Each of 
this is accompanied by sheer luck. 

It's much safer to feint, but if you're feeling lucky, spike it. See if you 
can knock every girl down.
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

============================================================================= 
4. Socializing
============================================================================= 
Now that we explained the volleyball part, how about GETTING a partner? To 
get a partner, we need to win someone's affection. How do we do that?

There's 2 ways to do this. 

1. When you start the game and accept the island tour, you'll partner with 
Lisa. Now, she'll always have 1 note when she speaks. We enhance that by 
winning volleyball games frequently. She'll stick to you like glue if you win 
a lot of matches, so try not to lose too much. 

2. To get ANOTHER partner then, is by using your hard-earned volleyball money 
to buy the target girl gifts. The Item Reaction guide by Robert Goode 
available at http://www.gamefaqs.com or http://www.neotaku.com/doax are 
useful to help you buy gifts for which girl. 

Do not worry, you will be rewarded! The girl you've given the "love" and 
"like" items will give you back trinkets and swimsuits only found in their 
collection of suits. So, giving items to other girls isn't that 
bad......their other swimsuits can be very interesting. A note: Sometimes 
you'll 
get swimsuits from a different girl's collection although it's not from their 
own collection.
=============================================================================
4.a As Helena
=============================================================================
As you go through your game for the first time, you'll notice Kasumi, 
LeiFang, Lisa and Hitomi have a note floating over their head, everyone else 
won't have anything. So, to enhance your relationship with K, LF, L or H and 
everyone else, you'll have to give them gifts. As mentioned above, the Item 
Reaction Guide will help you win over their affection. 

Being Helena is quite simple, so don't worry about turned-down gifts or 
senselessly throwing away gifts (not yet) that they're supposed to "love" or 
"like". 

=============================================================================
4.b As other girls
=============================================================================
So you're another girl, and you want Helena to be a partner? Well, she is 
easily enticed by the right gifts, so as long as you buy her the right items, 
you'll get her soon enough. However, if you're playing as Ayane or Christie, 
you're probably better off sticking with Lisa at first. You'll also need to 
work a bit at befriending Helena, if you play as Tina. Otherwise, everyone 
else is fine. Besides, it's still pretty simple to get Helena as a partner.

In comparison, if you're Helena and wants to partner Ayane, you give her love 
items from Day 4; you'll get Ayane on Day 6 at earliest. If you're Ayane and 
wants Helena as a partner, you'll get her at earliest the next day. This is 
if you shower Ayane or Helena with love items in 2 timeslots (1 anytime 
during the day and 1 at the hotel)
 
Although the guide above should explain all you need to get Helena as a 
partner, there is some more information here that may prove useful to you...
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
5. Helena's Likes and Loves
=============================================================================
Well, you need to know what to give her don't you? 

*Note: Helena is NOT a morning person. Meaning, she'll always have 1 note in 
the morning, but in the afternoon, it'll return to 2. Remember this so you 
won't get ticked off every morning and when you want to give tough-to-accept 
swimsuits.*

Here's a list of shops where you can buy her favourite items and what they 
sell.

Accessory Shop:
This shop sells things like sunglasses, hair clips, flowers, nail polish and 
whatnot. All the characters have the same items which are rotated daily. 
Here, you can buy Helena's "Like" items. Keep in mind she likes white things. 

Sports Shop:
This shop sells swimsuits and only swimsuits (apparently). Each girl has 
their own set of suits rotated daily. Swimsuits make good gifts but be very 
careful giving Helena a swimsuit. Certain swimsuits can tick her off very 
easily, and can cause the notes to go from fast-rising 2 to 0. They can also 
result her splitting up with you. Just don't give her anything too risque

Zack Of All Trades:
Now, this is where you get all of Helena's love items! The precious trinkets 
available here are absolutely essential to keep your relationship with Helena 
building and intact!

6. Helena's Moods and Gift Reactions
=============================================================================
In this section, we will give you a description of her moods as well as her 
gift reactions. 

What are moods? Well, it's how they feel toward you and it affects their 
performance during volleyball. There are 3 possible "moods" that Helena could 
be in. They are Unwilling, Usual, and Confident.

If Helena was Unwilling, she won't perform at volleyball very well, she'll 
usually just let the ball fall at her feet. She won't give any nice points to 
you in this mood.

If Helena was Usual, she'd perform slightly better at volleyball. She'll 
start spiking, blocking. She still won't give any nice points.

If Helena was Confident, she'd do her best to score a point. She'll always 
run to this and that side of the court to get the ball. In this mood, she 
WILL give nice points. 

=============================================================================
6.a Helena's Mood Descriptions
=============================================================================
How do you tell which mood she is in? By her picture of course. So which 
picture is which? Well, that will be explained here. The easiest way to tell 
is by the ribbon she is wearing, I still will explain other identifiers.

Note: I will describe the picture according to where she is looking. For 
example: If I say she is looking slightly to the left, it means she is 
looking to HER left and YOUR right.

Unwilling: 
She will be wearing a blue ribbon and a strapless swimsuit. Helena's turning 
her back to the camera and is looking over her right shoulder. Nothing else 
to say, this is the easiest mood to tell.

Usual:
She'll be wearing the Polonaise (you'll only see the strap, pendant-shaped 
purple-pink) with a red ribbon. She'll be facing and looking to the left and 
slightly upward.

Confident:
She'll be wearing the Sati, with a gold/tan ribbon. She will be facing the 
camera but looking to her right. This is the picture that'll always show if 
you're playing as Helena.

=============================================================================
6.b Helena's Gift Reactions
============================================================================= 
When you give to Helena a gift in person, she could turn it down or accept 
it. If you have 1 or 2 notes floating above her picture in the dialogue, 
she'll most probably open it. Her reactions depend the gift you give her. 

If she:

1. Loves it she will say "Oh!! It's so nice! I'll cherish it forever." in the 
subtitles.
2. Likes it she will say "Oh! Thank you." in the subtitles.
3. Doesn't like or dislike it she will say "Thanks very much." in the 
subtitles.
4. Dislikes it she will say "Umm...thanks." in the subtitles.
5. Hates it she will say "...Well. I guess I'll take it." in the subtitles.

If you gave Helena a dislike or hate item, she'd most probably have the 
opinion of you dropped to 1 or 0 rising notes.

=============================================================================

7. Helena's Swimsuits
=============================================================================
Now, the moment we have been waiting for.....her swimsuits. In this section, 
we'll give out descriptions for all her swimsuits (in ALPHABETICAL order) and 
methods to give Helena a perverted, skimpy, revealing, suggestive, etc. 
swimsuit. Please note that I have not tried all these methods. I've tried the 
Plan B method (such as THE GLITCH) to avoid wasting my money, and I was able 
to give Kasumi's Pink to Helena this way.

The last on the line of character-specific suits and swimsuits in general is

7.b How-to's to give Helena a *perverted* swimsuit
=============================================================================
Well, try Fuzzy's method, many people found that it works. I just put it up 
cuz' I'm too lazy to give Helena any perverted suit. (not yet, I'll have to 
eventually if I want to complete her Collection)

+ Setting up the giver of your goal swimsuit:  
------------------------------------------------------  
- First you will have to purchase 12 love items (14 if using a hard target) 
for your giver of the suit to eventually give to your target girl. If you 
feel confident that you will be able to purchase some of these in your main 
vacation, then you will only need 8 love items in advance.  
*** IT IS IMPERRATIVE THAT YOU BUY ACTUAL LOVE ITEMS - SO PLEASE CHECK YOUR 
LISTS ***  
- Purchase 3 of the same goal swimsuits (ex: 3 Venus's) - once you get 
comfortable using my newest method you will only ever need 1 goal swimsuit. 
You may buy these before or during your main vacation - it's up to you.  
 
+ Setting up your target girl:  
-------------------------------------  
- Empty 20 inventory squares & buy 9 love items for your target girl to 
eventually give to your giver 
(in case you need to go to plan B)  
 
BEGINNING MY METHOD:  
------------------------------  
+ Start a new vacation & turn down the Island tour  
 
+ Do not partner with your target girl  
 
*** HERE IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT ON DAY 1:  
- You need a partner - purchase your cheapest swimsuits from the sports shop 
& give them to your intended partner as gifts to accomplish this (the 
relationship result is close to giving a love gift)  
*** TRY & USE A GIRL WHO LIKES YOU ALREADY TO PARTNER WITH - AS YOU MUST 
HAVE A PARTNER TO PLAY V-BALL ON DAY 2 ***  
- You must get your target girl to fast rising notes by the end of day 2 - so 
only use your previously purchased love gifts & gift your target girl in 
person & if needed in the hotel as many times as is needed to make this 
happen.  
*** IMPORTANT: PLEASE SEE THE TIPS SECTION BELOW FOR USING CHRISTIE, AYANE 
OR HELENA, AS EITHER TARGETS OR AS PARTNERS ***  
- If possible, play 1 v-ball game on day 1.  
 
+ DAY 2:  
------------  
- Gift 1 love item to your target girl in person (on the beach, in jungle, 
etc.) if available on day 2  
- YOU MUST play 1 game of v-ball on day 2.  
- Your target girl must be at fast rising notes by the end of day 2 or you 
should restart or add an additional day before gifting your goal swimsuit to 
your target girl (see below). If target girl is not at 
fast rising notes by the end of day 3 - YOU MUST START OVER AGAIN.  
 
+ DAY 3 to DAY 9:  
--------------------------  
+ EVERYDAY YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING:  
- Give your target girl 1 love gift in person (on beach, in jungle, etc.) if 
available  
- Play 1 game of v-ball  
 
*** IMPORTANT: DO NOT GIVE ANY GIFTS TO YOUR TARGET IN THE HOTEL - OR THIS 
WILL NOT WORK (except as posted as tips below) ***  
- You must also keep your partner happy through all of this - easiest way is 
to gift your partner a cheap swimsuit in the hotel at night when needed.  
+ If you have done this correctly your target girl will be at level 2 fast 
rising notes by evening #9 
(assuming everything was also done as stated by evening #2 (above) - if not, 
continue on as you have been doing for an additional day & do what is stated 
below on day 11 instead of day 10).  
+ On day 10 give your target girl your goal swimsuit - Do not gift Ayane or 
Helena in the morning timeslot or the suit will be tossed  
+ Give target girl a love gift in the next timeslot if possible (this will 
help to see if she is wearing your goal swimsuit & get her notes rising 
again)  
- If she is, you can continue on as stated above & your target girl may again 
reach level 2 rising 
notes on day 14 & thus, you can give her a different goal swimsuit (however, 
this is not a guarantee).  
+ If she is not wearing your goal swimsuit look for a message of the suit 
being 
trashed in the hotel that night.  
- If there is no trashed message - the suit was accepted  
- If there is a trashed message then you will start preparing to use plan B

PLAN B:  
----------  
+ If the suit was trashed you need to give a love item to your TARGET GIRL in 
the hotel that night  
 
Starting with day 11:  
---------------------------  
+ Do not give any gifts to any other girl (including your partner) - Only 
gift your target girl as stated below.  
+ You will no longer have to play v-ball if you choose not to  
+ Find your target girl & gift her another one of your goal swimsuits (from 
the 3 you had previously purchased)  
+ Gift a love gift in the next available timeslot if possible & again check 
to see if she is wearing it  
+ If she is not wearing it - look for trashed message in the hotel  
- If suit was trashed - gift your target girl a love gift in the hotel  
+ Repeat as above with the 3rd goal swimsuit  
+ If 3rd suit is trashed - then finish all 14 days of the vacation & do the 
following:  
+ Start next vacation as your target girl & TURN DOWN THE ISLAND TOUR.  
+ Find your original girl (the girl who you just played as previously) on the 
beach & give a love item 
(one of the 9 which you had bought previously)  
+ Give as many love items as is necessary to get your original girl to fast 
rising music notes (may take more than 1 day depending on the girls that you 
have chosen)  
+ Ask your original girl to partner with you  
+ Win all available v-ball games this day & give a love gift to your original 
girl (now your partner) in the hotel  
*** PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU PARTNER IN THE EVENING TIMESLOT - YOU MUST PLAY 3 
DAYS OF V-BALL INSTEAD OF THE 2 LISTED BELOW & GIVE LOVE GIFTS DURING EACH 
OF THESE EVENINGS AS WELL AS THE ONE YOU ARE CURRENTLY IN.  
+ Clear out your inventory - transfer what you are missing into your 
collection & throw the rest out.  
+ For the next TWO (2) DAYS (3 DAYS IF YOU PARTNERED IN THE EVENING TIMESLOT) 
- 
win 2 games of v-ball & poolhop for the third timeslot each day & make sure 
to give a love gift to your partner (the original goal suit giver) in the 
hotel for each of these next two (2) nights (3 nights if you partnered in the 
evening timeslot).  
+ Starting with the morning after you have completed the above, do the 
following:  
ONLY REST AT THE POOL FOR EVERY TIMESLOT UNTIL YOU RECIEVE YOUR SUIT ONE 
NIGHT  *** IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU DO NOT EVEN MOVE OFF OF THE PICTURE OF 
THE POOL, AS THIS WILL RESET THIS GLITCH (ON DAY 4 WHEN ZACK'S OPENS - GO TO 
THE POOL & DO AS STATED ABOVE - DO NOT ENTER ZACK'S OR THE GLITCH WILL RESET, 
ALSO DO NOT GO TO THE CASINO AT NIGHT OR THE GLITCH WILL RESET.  
*** IT IS ALSO IMPERATIVE THAT YOU DO NOT POOLHOP - YOU MUST SELECT REST IN 
ORDER TO FORCE YOUR PARTNER TO GIFT YOU SWIMSUITS (also known as "THE 
GLITCH").  
- You may skip the resting movies by pressing your "a" button  
*** Your target swimsuit may not be your first gift received nor does it have 
to be the first swimsuit received - just stick to the plan & it will work!!!!

Straight from the Neotaku (or was it Tecmo?) forums. Try that!!! Besides, I 
got Kasumi's Pink using Plan B only. Why should I go through all the hassle?

8. Helena's Gravure Movies
=============================================================================
In this section, we will describe her gravure movies. The explanations are 
sorted through place. To watch gravure movies, you must go to a place (not 
a shop) which is unoccupied. When you give other girls gifts in person, 
you'll watch one of the receiver's gravure movies. Each movie changes through 
certain conditions, such as timeslot, even or odd days. I think that's all. 
Now, the gravure movies.

=============================================================================
Poolside
=============================================================================
Morning (Even and Odd): 
Helena sits at one of the pool tables, enjoying a drink.

Afternoon (Even):
Helena lies on the poolside and strikes poses like she would be when you 
first enter the pool.

Afternoon (Odd):
Helena sits by the pool, playing with the water with her legs.

Evening (Even and Odd): 
Same as Morning.

=============================================================================
Niki Beach
=============================================================================
Morning: 
Helena practices Pi Qua Quan.

Afternoon and Evening:
Helena lies on the beaching rolling around.

=============================================================================
Jungle
=============================================================================
Morning, Afternoon and Evening:
Helena just rests and moves around a tree.

=============================================================================
Bass Island
=============================================================================
Afternoon only:
Helena swims in the beautiful and detailed ocean.

=============================================================================
Private Beach
=============================================================================
Morning:
The creature "Tina" or gopher is sitting in its hole. The segment is followed 
by Helena looking towards the ocean, she then walks along the shore and picks 
up a seashell. She listens to the sounds in the seashell.

Afternoon:
"Tina" is now sitting on a rock, then runs away. Helena does the same thing 
as the Morning timeslot.

Evening:
"Tina" is on a leaning coconut tree, and runs away. Helena does the same 
thing as the Afternoon timeslot.

9. Helena's quotes.
=============================================================================
Here, we'll say all of her quotes that she'll say. These are all the quotes 
in subtitles, hopefully we'll get a much more dependable translation from 
those who knows Japanese. Why do I say this? Well, on certain days when 
Kasumi "Goes to bed" she'll say "Good night, sleep tight" when it's actually 
"Good night, Hayate". Hayate is Kasumi's brother. Well, now back to 
Helena.....

=============================================================================
Volleyball Quotes
=============================================================================
During the start of a match:
"Stay nice and relaxed." 
"So are you ready?" 
"This will be fun." 
"Are you ready to play?"
"Think you can win?"

If Helena's team scores a point:
"You didn't have to hold back, y'know." 
"How about that?"
"Ho ho, well of course." 
"And with such elegance too, eh?"
"Is that all you've got?"

If Helena messed up/opponent scores a point:
"I blew it..."
*Helena doesn't speak anything but put her hands on her mouth and hushes*

If you as another girl and you mess up:
"Oh, c'mon"
"Don't let it bother you"

=============================================================================
Misc. Quotes
=============================================================================
When you closed the game when it's not morning or night:
"It's so hot...."

When it's nighttime:
"It's time to get back to the hotel"
"It's getting pretty late"

When Helena is in her room:
"This room is so small..."
"What a long day..."

When you select "Go to bed":
"It's almost time to go to bed"
"Bonne Soiree. Good night."
 
Last night at the island:
"Tonight's the last night I'll sleep here."

When giving someone a gift in person:
"I chose it just for you"
"I hope you will like it"

If the person rejects the gift:
"Well, that's too bad..."

If you as someone else, give Helena a gift (let's say it's Kasumi giving 
Helena a present):
Helena: It's a hot one, eh?
          OR
Helena: Nice breeze.
          OR
Helena: How are you?

Partnership dialogue (positive):

          OR
Helena: Would you like to team up with me?
LeiFang: Me? Well...okay.

Helena: I appreciate it.
         OR

Helena: Let me think...Okay, I think it's okay. 

Ayane: Good decision.

Partnership dialogue (towards Helena) (negative):
Same as above except:
Helena(at the start): Oh, you...
       AND
Helena: Let me think...let think about it.

Ayane: (Whatever Ayane says, insert here)

If you're another girl with Helena as partner and it's morning:
"Did I keep you waiting?"

The opening dialogue with Lisa:
Helena: Oh, this place is so hot.
Lisa: Hello there.
Helena: Oh, and who might you be?
Lisa: I'm Lisa, nice to meet you.
Helena: I'm Helena. Pleased to meet you. By the way, Lisa, do you know 
anything about the tournament?

this island. Shall I show you around?
