1. INTRODUCTION

This is an FAQ for Guilty Gear XX #Reload, specifically referring to Story
Mode. Although the Japanese version of the game did not have story mode
included, the US release did (although it was identical to the story mode
in GGXX, so really, nothing was added).

For basic information on Guilty Gear XX, refer to my FAQ/Movelist on
GameFAQs. The newest revision of this FAQ will always be found on GameFAQs.


2. STORY MODE PATHS

Note that certain endings cannot be seen without first seeing other
characters' story modes. For instance, you cannot get Sol's Ending #3 without
having first seen Dizzy's Ending #2. I have listed all the requirements
based on the second GGXX Mook, the Complete Guide.

Certain fights are designated BOSS fights. What this means is that the
character will have enhanced offense and defense, though they will not
necessarily have Gold powers. Also, in the case of Boss I-No, she will be
able to use Megalomania. Boss Dizzy will be able to use Hikari no Tsubasa.
