    I didn't believe there will come a time when I'll have to write something          
    like this just to remind some people of what they all should be knowing            
    by heart :( Anyway, here goes...

    * Makoto, hmm... What can I say about her? I have to admit the first time
      I saw her I thought she was a boy and had Ryu-like skills but I guess
      I was all wrong. I still learned to like her for her style though. She
      can, as far as I know, never be used in a cheap way. For starters, she
      doesn't have a fireball and needs a super just to counter it. She only
      has one surprise move, the Hayate, and you can't even do it while getting
      up. Finally, the same Hayate is her only long range move. Is she sounding
      lame already? Wait till you hear this...
                                                                           
    1. Makoto is as powerful as Ryu yet as fast as Ken (whoa!)
    2. Makoto's dash travels farther than the rest
    3. Makoto's normal moves are damaging yet have very high priority
    4. Makoto has several fake moves that can really confuse an opponent
    5. Makoto can further increase her damage through her taunt
    6. Makoto's normal moves, when coupled with a forward, comes out differently

                 longer can it be done on high attacks)
    red parry  - tap F at the moment of impact of the opponent's attack right
                 after blocking a previous one. (both the current and previous
                 attack must've been a combo for the red parry to be acknowledged)

    1) LP - strategies with her LP are no different to most the players,
            especially shotos, of the game. Just use it to chip away on your
            opponents life and suddenly strike hard when he's just about done
            for.
                                                                           
       a) standing - she does a palm attack that's just as useful as any
                     normal or small sized player's jab in the game. Used to 
                     confuse high-blocking opponents to continue blocking
                     high when you decide to sweep (D+HP) or throw
                                                                           
       b) forward - she throws a jab that can hit low-blocking opponents.
                    Virtually undetectable and can be used to finish off an
                    opponent with almost no life left.
                                                                           
       c) crouching - well, she just crouches and does basically the same
                      attack as her standing LP. This time you use it to
                      confuse opponents to block low when you decide to do
                      an overhead or LP Oroshi (the karate chop that spells
                      P-O-W-E-R-!)
                                                                           
       d) jumping - useless, actually. Maybe you can use it to counter a
                    Shoryuken type move but, doesn't a parry followed by any
                    other, stronger, attack feel a lot better?
                                                                           
    2) MP - this is her general combo starter. May it be standing, crouching,
            or jumping, this move can always be linked to her Hayate. Keep
            that in mind and you're off to a good start.
                                                                           
       a) standing - her farther arm punches the opponent's face while the
                     other is simultaneously hitting the chest. Looks like
                     she'll need a lot of recovery time for this move but no,
                     like I said, it can be comboed into the Hayate.
                                                                           
       b) forward - she delivers a slow yet damaging punch to the midsection
                    which is quite good at pushing your opponent to impatience
                    and make him do something stupid.
                                                                           
       c) crouching - don't know what it's called, but let me describe it:
                      she has her hand open but the fingers are close as in
                      a karate chop position but then she doesn't chop, she
                      reaches out for the opponent and its the tips of her
                      fingers that connects. Used to keep opponents from
                      getting close and doing an overhead.
                                                                           
       d) jumping - again, as useless as the LP version. Comes out almost
                    as slow as the jumping HP and does less damage so I'd
                    prefer the latter.
                                                                           
    3) HP - close ranged yet high on damage and stun. She also has quite a
            unique array of HPs
                                                                           
       a) standing - looks like a slap in the face but actually it's just a
                     mean swipe, well, not just, it's MEAN and can also be
                     comboed to the Hayate.
                                                                           
       b) forward - this should already be considered a special move but I'll
                    include it here for completeness' sake. In this move she
                    steps forward and does a straight punch to the chest. If
                    you press the HP button again before she completes the
                    punch she'll do a two punch combo and if you hit the HP
                    twice before she completes the first punch she'll punch
                    three times. Mix up the number of punches you do to confuse
                    them into blocking.
                                                                           
       c) crouching - a punch-sweep? Surprising, but true. She's the only
                      one in the SF world as far as I know that does a punch
                      sweep, and it even comes out great! Quite low on the
                      range, but high on priority, damage, and stun. Quite
                      hard to detect too if you properly mix it up with your
                      standing LPs
                                                                           
       d) jumping - very damaging yet comes out slow and has to be timed right
                    to connect. Best used as an anti-air rather than a jump-in
                    combo starter.
                                                                           
    4) LK - nothing her LKs can do that her LPs can't do better so I won't
            be including strategies on this but I'll describe them...
                                                                           
       a) standing - the conventional knee attack seen in many other players
                     in the SF world
                                                                           
       b) forward - she takes one step and kicks forward, making sure that
                    crouching opponent will get a taste of her foot.
                                                                           
       c) crouching - the only move she has that can be traced back to a shoto
                      Basic kick to the shin.
                                                                           
       d) jumping - even more useless than the jumping LP. Makes use of the
                    knee.
                                                                           
    5) MK - this sheds some light on her kicks if by now you're thinking they're
            no good. See for yourself its advantages:
                                                                           
       a) standing - this, on my opinion, is her best normal move. Has VERY
                     high priority, not to mention damage and stun like the
                     rest of her moves. It may look like a simple high-forward
                     kick, but it can take the place of a Shoryuken! Just dash
                     back when you see a jumping opponent and do it. Even if
                     they parry you still got great chances of blocking or
                     better yet parrying their next move.
                                                                           
       b) forward - another good anti-air, this time she first takes a step
                    forward, then does a high spin kick much like her standing
                    HK but slower yet still a better anti-air.
                                                                           
       c) crouching - she's down alright, but still kicks high! her crouching
                      MK hits the opponents midsection(I think), and has a 
                      higher priority than most normal and even some special
                      attacks. Use this to counter moves you have detected.
                                                                           
       d) jumping - it's a genuine flying kick if you ask me. Just like the
                    flying kicks you see in the movies. In case you're still
                    wondering, it's a horizontal kick with the farther leg
                    while the nearer one is strictly folded. Good at air to
                    air encounters.
                                                                           
    6) HK - only for those who are quite accustomed to using her already.
            Most of her HK's are a little awkward to use and recover slowly
            so you'll have to experiment if they suit you fine.
                                                                           
       a) standing - frustrating, the word's frustrating. I can't get any
                     strategies from this move other than to exchange hits
                     with an upcoming fireball. You're in for a super if this
                     move is blocked or worse, parried.
                                                                           
       b) forward - like her forward HP, should already be considered a special
                    move but included here for completeness' sake. It's a
                    standing sweep (why can't she just SWEEP like everyone
                    else does) that comes after a step forward. Hold the HK
                    button and the sweep will be cancelled, leaving you nearer
                    the opponent. Still don't know what to do? THROW!
                                                                           
       c) crouching - yet another anti-air, but not a sweep and it does not
                      even hit crouching opponents. Comes out slow yet I repeat
                      is a good and damaging anti-air if timed right.
                                                                           
       d) jumping - she does a horizontal kick that out-prioritizes any other
                    air attack I've seen. Best at air to air encounters but
                    still highly recommended for jump-in combo starters. 
                                                                           
    * In a nutshell, use her punches for opponents on the ground while her
      kicks for opponents in mid-air

    * EX version - done by pressing two P/K instead of one in every move
                 - basically just increases in speed and number of hits
                                                                           
    1) Hayate - D,DF,F+P
                                                                           
            This move is what brought Makoto to fame. One of the first reasons
       why I decided to master her, this move is a speedy yet powerful dash
       punch that actuallly leaves a trail of Makoto images behind. This is
       the general combo ender and a move always witnessed in any Makoto match.
       You may hold the P longer to allow her to wait before striking and
       while holding the P you can press K to cancel the move altogether.
                                                                           
    2) Fukiage - F,D,DF+P
                                                                           
            I don't know what makes her think she'll ever connect with this
       move, which is a straight-up punch with her farther arm. But now I know.
       It's not for opponents planning a jump-in combo, it's for opponents
       who want to get behind you by propelling themselves in the air (like
       Ken's EX Tatsumaki) The only good thing about this move is the fact
       that you can juggle afterwards.
            Ex version includes a step forward before the actual move, making
       it more easy to connect and re-juggle!
                                                                           
    3) Oroshi - D,DB,B+P
                                                                           
            Another overhead P that does not jump. It's slower but harder to
       detect so maybe you can use this but only in the first round when your
       opponent ain't familiar of your style yet. It can also be used as an
       anti-air but there are other, easily timed moves to replace it.
                                                                           
    4) Karakusa - F,DF,D,DB,B+K
                                                                           
            Useful both as a confuser and combo starter, in this move she
       grabs the opponent, raises them in the air, chokes them, and finally
       puts them back on the ground, a little dazed. You follow this move
       up with a combo but you have to think fast because your opponent is
       stun for only half a sec.
                                                                           
    5) Tsurugi - UB/U/UF,D,DB,B+K
                                                                           
            She does an axe kick in mid-air which, of course, is great on
       stun and damage but again slow on the execution. You'll have to estimate
       the time it takes for her to do it so you could land it successfully
       and use as a jump-in combo. The HK version should not be used much
       because it knocks your opponent flat on his back and therefore cannot
       be comboed.

    1) Seichuusen Godanzuki - D,DF,F,D,DF,F+P
       (comes in one long super bar)
                                                                           
            Makoto will deliver a hard-hitting punch where girls of her age
       shouldn't (you know what I mean) and follows it up with a three punch
       combo to the chest, ended by a hard uppercut, this time using her
       nearer arm. The opponent is sent to lala land while she mumbles something
       no ear could hear. Eventually, the opponent falls back to the ground
       and only then can you start moving. Can be comboed from lotsa things,
       (like a Hayate, Oroshi, Tsurugi, most normals, etc.) so experiment
       and discover.....
                                                                           
    2) Abare Tosanami Kudaki - D,DF,F,D,DF,F+K
       (comes in two moderately long super bars)
                                                                           
            Much like Spiderman's "Maximum Spider" in Marvel vs. Capcom, Makoto
       jumps back, charges up, and jets through the air with her foot ready
       to hit the opponent's face. Extermely useful for cheap fireballers.
       However, this super is not homing and the direction you will go depends
       upon the K you pressed. The weaker the K, the closer to vertical. ALWAYS
       follow-up this move with a Hayate, most people forget that. I know
       there are more you can follow this super up with, and I'll be discussing
       them in the next section.
                                                                           
    3) Tanden Renki - D,DF,F,D,DF,F+P
       (comes in one short super bar)
                                                                           
            Makoto is red-hot, quite literally in this super. Remember me saying
       Makoto is as powerful as Ryu? How bout when I said her taunt would
       further increase her damage? Well, she's all that and this super just
       makes her the Queen of Pain. She can't block during this super though,
       so you'll have to rely on parrying, but, come to think of it, you HAVE
       to rely on parrying in general if you want to use her effectively.
       Oh and, before I forget, the easiest way to guarantee at least 2 hits
       from this super is to grab the opponent in a Karakusa, activate the
       Tanden Renki, and quickly hit them with a HP->Hayate combo. Does insane
       damage, though you have to be prepared to either throw, parry, or re-
       attack the opponent's retaliation =p

    * Fukiages and EX Fukiages must be cancelled into a super jump that yields
      the MK Axe K
    * Timing is VERY important for landing all the HP Hayates
    * Follow-up the EX Fukiage immediately after the HP Hayates
                                                                           
    2) One bar charged, you in corner (9-hits)

    * The Abare Tosanami Kudaki must be cancelled into a super jump that yields

    * Damage is the theme of this combo, not number of hits
    * The Fukiage must be cancelled into a super jump that yields the MK Axe K
                                                                           
    4) Fully charged (2-hits)

    * The HP Oroshi must be cancelled to the Seichuusen Godanzuki
    * well, just thought I'd let you know...

    * a general strategy would be to step forward, do an MP followed by an
      HP Hayate, and repeat the process indefinitely or replace the MP with
      a D+MP
                                                                           
    * another general strategy would be to catch your opponent with a Karakusa,
      follow up with an HP-> HP Hayate combo, and repeat the process indefinitely
      or replace the HP with an MP or D+MP. I actually garnered a rating of
      SS+ (yup! SS+) using this strategy alone and I didn't even know there
      was such a rank before I got it!

      win.
                                                                           
    * Seichuusen Godanzuki is the most recommended super for the computer
                                                                           
    Akuma - if you block a combo of his that ended with a Hadouken, do a
            HP Fukiage cause he'll jump and try to do another dive K combo
          - if he's in the corner and you do a Hayate holding the P, he'll
            jump. Tap the K to cancel and do a parry to super if you will
                                                                           
    Alex - whenever he does a HP Back Fist, duck. He'll follow up with a
           Double Dive P which you should be ready to parry and counter
         - if he suddenly walks back for 3 sec, get ready to parry his charging
           elbow
                                                                           
    Chunli - she wouldn't be herself if she didn't jump at least 10 times per
             match. Use your standing MK abusively
                                                                           
    Dudley - he is, in my opinion, the hardest to parry cause it's so dam hard
             to anticipate his moves. A good strategy would be to block his
             attacks and retaliate
           - note: don't block all day, especially if he's close cause he,
             like most computer opponents, can always throw you when you least
             expect it
                                                                           
    Elena - memorize her body language and you'll see her charging kick from
            a mile away
          - low blocking her D+LK will make her do an overhead kick and follow
            it with a sweep so counter as you see fit
          - she'll super jump for you if you're too far away so prepare to
            juggle.
                                                                           
    Gill - continue parrying his fireballs until he does something else
         - he rarely parries in mid-air so you know what to do
         - super jump and HK Axe Kick to land behind him if he gets too close
         - don't get intimidated by his meteor shower; it can be parried
         - get intimidated by his ULTRA CHEAP angel of death super
         - have at least one super ready to counter his resurrection super
         - minimize your jumps when he is fully charged
                                                                           
    Hugo - jab occasionally to make sure he doesn't grapple you
         - when he jumps, carefully time a P sweep cause he never expects it
                                                                           
    Ibuki - if she jumps back, she'll throw a dagger so don't try to follow
          - if she jumps forward, meet her in the air and pummel her to the
            ground with a HP
                                                                           
    Ken - don't jump on him or if you do, get ready to parry a three-hit Shoryuken
        - if he's fully charged and you launched an LP Hayate, he'll jump
          and propell himself with an EX Tatsumaki, landing behind you.
                                                                           
    Makoto - don't risk slow moves even if you think their damage is worth
             the wait. She'll surely punish you with her speedy power P
           - don't HK repeatedly just to charge up your super meter. She'll
             see to it that you learn your lesson
                                                                           
    Necro - don't jump cause he has a whole lot of ways to counter
          - his mid-air drill K is always followed by a sweep
          - he mixes his groud and air attacks but keep an eye on his feet
            and you'll know when to do a dash back to standing MK
                                                                           
    Oro - he'll always follow a straight fireball with an upward one
        - he rarely uses his uppercut now. That means you can always beat
          him via jump-in combos
                                                                           
    Q - he's crap. Don't know why he was chosen for a secret challenger. Not
        much strategy is needed for him. He can be obliterated even by simple
        jump-in combos
                                                                           
    Remy - concentrate on countering his attacks and low parrying his projectile
         - don't rush cause that's what he's waiting for
         - if you must jump, be sure you're ready to parry a 2 hit flash kick
                                                                           
    Ryu - if he dashes backwards, expect two Hadoukens to come your way. Jump
          and select from a wide variety of combos
                                                                           
    Sean - you're half-screen away and you do a LP Hayate, he'll always counter
           with a hopping heel K which you, in turn can counter with a parry->
           super
         - two D+LK s will always be followed by a hopping heel k. Parry and
           super
                                                                           
    Twelve - don't lose hope if he's been countering all your jump-ins for half the
             round. he won't be countering the succeeding ones and thus victory
             for you
           - keep an eye out for his invisibility. It's when you give all you've
             got: He'll accept every last bit of it.
                                                                           
    Urien - crouching for 3 or more seconds yields a dive knee
          - walking back for sec yields a charging shoulder
          - standing for 3 or more seconds yields a projectile
                                                                           
    Yang/Yun - they may have different abilities, but the strategies the computer
               has in mind when playing them are identical
             - whenever they're very far from you, they'll super jump and 
               dive K. You'll parry and super

    Well, there won't be any universal rules for fighting against humans cause
    no two humans think identically. There are, however, general rules that
    could apply to at most 80% of your encounters with human challengers
                                                                           
    * Makoto, because of her advantage in power and lack of recovery,
         must be used as a counter attacker. I must admit even I have not
         perfected this sort of strategy. But many battles I have won simply
         by moving left and right, parrying an attack, and doing either a
         HP Hayate or a super to retaliate.
                                                                           
    1) Abare Tosanami Kudaki is the most recommended super
                                                                           
    There is a very different strategy for playing against humans and against
    computers. Computers are not easily confused, but are predictable. Humans
    may hide their predictabilities, but can easily be confused. Thus this super
    for the humans and the first one for the computer
                                                                           
    2) Mix-up your D+MP, Overhead P/Oroshi, and your throw/Karakusa
                                                                           
    If you get close to an opponent, try as randomly as possible to execute
    one of these attacks and follow it up with another randomly chosen move.
    Most of the time I just mix-up the crouching punch and the overhead punch
    and only use the throw when my opponents' getting the hang of it.
                                                                           
    3) Try jumping straight up as the first round starts
                                                                           
    Normally, your challenger would throw a fireball which you should parry.
    If he jumps towards you, just do a HK. Sometimes he'll dash in. When this
    happens, repeatedly tap forward and LP+LK to anticipate either an attack
    or a throw. 
                                                                           
    4) Are you experiencing an almost inhuman desire to repeatedly annoy an
    opponent? Use my 6-hit Fukiage combo to satisfy your needs! I'm quite proud
    of it cause I discovered it and no one (at least where I play) has ever
    successfully used it even against the computer. Anyway, here's how:
                                                                           
    (you have to be fully charged and equipped with an Abare Tosanami Kudaki)
                                                                           
     a) Set up your opponent. Just walk back and forth, doing LP Hayates to
        tease him into doing a jump-in combo
                                                                           
     b) When finally does, counter with an EX Fukiage
                                                                           
     c) Walk forward a little and do another EX Fukiage
                                                                           
     d) Repeat just what you did in step c
                                                                           
     e) By this time, perhaps you're already near a coner. Just pause, no
        need to walk forward a little, and...
                                                                           
     f) Deliver an EX Fukiage! (surprise, surprise)
                                                                           
     g) He may drop a little behind you so dash back since another EX Fukiage
        includes a step forward
                                                                           
     h) What else to do in this step but an EX Fukiage!
                                                                           
     wait a minute, how many was that? 5? did i say 6? then there must be one
     last hit, right? Right! Just stay put and, since your super bar is empty
     by now, do a NON-EX FUKIAGE!!!
                                                                           
    * if you're going to put this combo on your faq please include me in your
      credits section. thanks
                                                                           
    5) If Ryu was used honorably, he'd be used in a similar way to Makoto.
       I'd be including here a section of my Ryu faq that'd be modified a bit
       to suit Makoto. Since Ryu's Shin Shoryuken is much like Makoto's
       Seichuusen Godanzuki, you'll have to use that super to apply these
       strategies.
                                                                           
    Akuma - If there's anyone who'd take your Seichuusen Godanzuki as sign to
            insert more quarters, it's him. The Seichuusen Godanzuki takes a LOT
            of damage, and Akuma just takes a LOT more than he should as a
            balancing factor for his awesome power. With Akuma as an opponent,
            all you have to concentrate on is landing a Seichuusen Godanzuki that's
            not part of a combo. That's quite a hard task, but parrying leads
            the way to it. Just parry any jump-in and proceed with this
            super.
                                                                           
    Alex - Always keep an eye out for his spiral DDT. You can do just about
           anything to counter it, but that is IF you detect it. Most of the
           time you'll block, which is very, VERY bad. It IS blockable but,
           why block if you can counter? Besides, a simple crouch would get
           you out of his accursed reach. His non-super grapples do not require
           a 360 degree rotation so don't underestimate your opponent's ability
           to do it anytime he wants. He won't be doing any non-grapple moves
           if you can parry and counter them all so give him that impression.
           Besides, it's quite easy to parry his non-grapples, being one-hit
           moves.
                                                                           
    Chunli - She'll definitely confuse you with her wide array of high and
             low hitting kicks so stay out of a close fight. She can't just
             walk toward you and attack without you crouch MP to comboing her
             first so she'll have to jump. Parry and counter. If she pushes
             you to a corner, however, she'd be an instant offense freak so
             use your HP Hayate to silence her.
                                                                           
    Dudley - Parrying his moves will prove to be quite a challenge as its
             moments of impact vary at his will. If you really find it hard
             to parry, try blocking all his moves. They leave a lot for you
             to feast your combos on, anyway. Be careful not to get thrown
             out of a block, though. If he does that move wherein he allows
             you to hit him in the face and then counters, throw him. It
             won't be considered cheap unless the throw knocked him out, but
             no one's so foolish as to execute that move with a low life
             left.
                                                                           
    Elena - She's also a good confuser like Chunli, and she attacks slower but,
            to my surprise, is a lot more undetectable. D+MK her whenever
            she's starting a confuser's game with you. Her Rhino Horn need
            not be parried, just duck, dash-in, and choose a favorite combo
            for her. Remember, all her moves, even her supers, leave her
            open for a Seichuusen Godanzuki afterwards.
                                                                           
    Hugo - Intimidating, but not really a problem. He's a grappler, so throwing
           won't be considered cheap in this situation. Actually, it's a
           worthy skill on your part if he wasn't able to throw you first.
           He'll also be a counter attacker cause if he's not, all you'll
           need are well-timed HPs and HKs to win. If he is, as I was saying,
           you'll just have to out-wait him. When he jumps toward you, dash
           back and do a HP Hayate. If he super jumps, dash forward, walk back,
           and throw.
                                                                           
    Ibuki - Don't be dismayed over a 10+hit combo that rendered you helpless
            for several seconds because all her efforts would prove futile
            when she does a cheap knife throw in mid-air, cause that's when
            you jab the knife (yes, you can!) dash forward, and bury your
            hand in her,....uh....midsection with a Seichuusen Godanzuki. Same goes
            with her slide if you block it---and she's sure to use either
            of the two moves I mentioned at least thrice in a round.
                                                                           
    Ken - It's easy to land a Seichuusen Godanzuki with this guy. Just sacrifice
          a relatively small amount of life by letting him hit you with a
          Tatsumaki. He's so weak even four or more hits of this move won't
          knock you down so repeatedly do the down to forward motion and hit
          the HP afterwards to connect. If he doesn't ever use this move,
          my number two and three Vs. Human strategies are enough to send
          him on his way.
                                                                           
    Makoto - Just like Elena, this newcomer will leave herself open for a
             Seichuusen Godanzuki after every blocked move. You'll find it hard
             to parry her speedy punch, but you won't have to. Block and
             super. If she utilizes a Karakusa-to-HP-to- Hayate-and-repeat
             strategy on you, the better. Time it right so you can do a Seichuusen
             Godanzuki after the speedy punch is done to make her cry. She'll
             also be a counter attacker like Hugo so you'll also have to out-
             wait her. Always be ready to block, though, as she might surprise
             you with her sudden attacks.
                                                                           
    Necro - a lot rarer than Alex users to even have the guts to challenge
            me so I'm not that sure of the properties of his moves but what
            I know is this: treat him as you would treat a computer controlled
            Necro. He'll knock you off the air if you jump, electrify you
            if you're close, and do that multi-hitting spin attack if you
            miss a move. Watch his feet when he does a confuser's strategy
            so you'll know when to do an MK.
                                                                           
    Oro - Another character whose cheapness is more frequently utilized than
          not. His EX fireball is the key to his "efficiency" It hits twice,
          just like any other EX projectile, but then it has some MAJOR pluses.
          First, it's extremely slow, meaning he could use it to protect himself
          and make sure you won't hit him without YOU getting first. This dam
          projectile is also homing, which means you can't jump over it and
          hope to feel safe. If he stays close, you'll just have to exchange hits
          with him so attack wisely. Otherwise, you can parry it without
          the fear of being thrown, swept, or stomped at.
                                                                           
    Q - His tricks come out fast and therefore hard to detect. Don't try
        to parry them, as you would only put yourself at risk of receiving
        very high damage. Block his moves. Counter with a combo or better
        yet a Seichuusen Godanzuki. Two of his supers require one hit connects
        and since he can't combo, will be easier to evade than your Seichuusen
        Godanzuki. One of his supers is a series of whacks. Easy to parry
        all of them but then again, rather not take the risk. One more thing,
        the fourth hit of this super is a low attack so be prepared for that
        and show off YOUR super when he's done.
                                                                           
    Remy - I just hate the Guile types. It's so dam easy to go cheap on them.
           Just crouch back all day, throw projectiles like crazy, and counter
           jump-ins via flash kicks. Remy's even worse. His projectile actually
           has a use (as a confuser cause it may hit high or low), the EX
           version is hard to parry (because it hits BOTH high and low), and
           parrying the super is virtually impossible unless you jump first
           (since it's compose of a multitude of EX versions). Ok, enough
           of his "strengths" and on to his weaknesses. Remy needs to hold
           directions before he could execute his moves so if you ever see
           a standing Remy, dash-in immediately and engage in a confuser's
           game. He'll probably double sweep you and that'd be his downfall.
           Block one of his sweeps and parry the other. It's Seichuusen Godanzuki
           time! If you happen to be facing the cheap@$$ low blocker I was
           talking about, you'll have to master the art of parrying an anti-air
           (in this case flash kick-like moves). Whenever you are successful
           leave him a scar in the chest via Seichuusen Godanzuki.
                                                                           
    Ryu - You'll have your hands full in this karate match, whether he'd be
          using a Shinkuu Hadouken or a Shin Shoryuken. They'd probably use
          their supers as surprise moves, so when you close in on a knocked
          down Ryu, add blocking to the list of things you might do as he gets
          up. Denjin Hadouken users need not be worried about. All you have
          to do is avoid being rendered dizzy, as that would mean the end.
          In any case, always meet him in mid-air with an HK, always parry
          his Hadoukens, duck and combo when he does a Tatsumaki, and apply
          numbers two and three of my Vs. Human strategies. 
                                                                           
    Sean - It's easy to land a Seichuusen Godanzuki with this guy. Just sacrifice
           a relatively small amount of life by letting him hit you with his
           (Dan's) version of a Tatsumaki. He's so weak even four or more
           hits of this move won't knock you down so repeatedly do the down
           to forward motion and hit the HP afterwards to connect. If he doesn't
           ever use this move, my number two and three Vs. Human strategies
           are enough to send him on his way.
                                                                           
    Twelve - If he copies you, you'll just have to follow my Makoto strategies,
             disregarding the "avoiding the supers" part because he won't
             be able to do any of them. Choosing his dive super means your
             opponent is ready for any Hadouken attack you can think of, but
             since you don't HAVE a Hadouken, he'll die of frustration. Looks
             like the needle super is all he has left, but you can easily
             block that. Scatter his molecules with a Seichuusen Godanzuki afterwards
             for a glorifying win. By the way, his specials are of no use
             whatsoever.
                                                                           
    Urien - Learn from the computer. Don't parry that Thunder thingy cause
            he'll follow up with an EX projectile. Don't jump for him cause
            he's got an ultra cheap D+HP that allows him to juggle you with
            several powerful moves and even his shoulder ram super! You're
            also not supposed to parry the mirror super and the reasons are
            obvious. Out-wait him just like you would with Hugo and Makoto.
            He'll generally be less patient than the other two and succumb
            to his fate---KO!
                                                                           
    Yang - Good Yang players would never finish their three hit Tourou Zan
           so keep an eye out for the pause and Seichuusen Godanzuki! Master the
           art of parrying a dive kick and you'll be fine. Don't ever jump,
           hoping to land behind him cause he's got a nice MK that can juggle
           you for a looong time. Choosing his roll super means your opponent
           is ready for any Hadouken attack you can think of, but since you
           don't HAVE a Hadouken, he'll die of frustration. His Raishin Mahhaken
           is just too easy to evade, and his multiplicity super is not supposed
           to give much damage.
                                                                           
    Yun - Lure him into missing a Zesshou Hohou by dashing in and out for a
          free Seichuusen Godanzuki in his face. Master the art of parrying a dive
          kick and you'll be fine. His two combo supers are dealt with in the
          same manner: just block them all and Seichuusen Godanzuki him out of his
          brand new kung-fu shoes afterwards. His multiplicity super, by the
          way, is not supposed to give much damage.

              Your headband and that all-season karate uniform,
              Yes, I can't be mistaken!
              Now, accept my challenge!
                                                                           
      Ryu   : Hmm...your style is karate, and you seem skilled.
              Interesting! Show me your best!!
                                                                           
    * Makoto's ending:
                                                                           
    A pile of KOed street fighters are seen by Makoto's side as she whispers
    "I've finally done it." With her victory comes her father's Rindoukan
    dojo's rise to fame. People lined the streets to try and learn the power
    of her fighting style. Makoto says, "Please fall in line, I will be accepting
    30 challengers today." (woah, what a show-off!) The dojo's future is now
    trustfully placed in Makoto's hands.

    Makoto has a second taunt, this time I'm not sure if it will increase
    her damage but to see it, first do a Hayate and immediately cancel into
    the taunt code (HP+HK)

    "Against Dudley in the first fight or the second fight just use Hayates,
    and if he blocks trip him, and then continue with the Hayates.
                                                                           
    Against Gill and Urien from a safe distance away do a Hayate, they'll rarely
    block.  And if they do seem to be blocking, just EX it, then you'll be a
    safe distance away if they do block.  As well, with the Abare Tosanami
    super, don't use it against Gill. I had the first part of it hit him, and
    then he blocked the rest somehow.
                                                                           
    Against Hugo just do jumping kicks, it's all you need to know how to do
    against him.  DON'T DO A SUPER...EVER.  He'll just block and you'll be
    standing right there.
                                                                           
    Against anyone do a Fierce Oroshi while your opponent is getting up, it
    rarely connects, but if it does they're back on the ground and if it doesn't
    the block'll send you a little ways away.  Make sure not to EX it, because
    then you'll be standing there like and idiot as your opponent beats the
    living crap out of you.
                                                                           
    Abare Tosanami Kudaki Combo:
                                                                           
    		Do the super, if it isn't blocked then follow up in the air
    with a Roundhouse Kick, it'll knock them back towards the ground and they'll
    be standing up, of course, you land a split second before they do, so do
    her triple Fierce punch thingy, and if it hits you've just taken off about
    half of they're health with about eight hits.  And you can build your super
    up to 1 and 3/4 and do the super combo and after you've done your punching
    just start it over again.  I've managed to get it off twice, except that
    the second Abare Tosanami killed him...so I couldn't finish off the combo,
    but everybody around me was shocked and amazed...so it was all worth it.
                                                                           
    Against the SUV the Oroshi will hit the SUV when she's on top of it. Kinda
    fun to finish off that damn vehicle by putting your pinky straight into
    the engine."
