-  Well I'll put it simply....I've been working on getting a Virtua Fighter 5
   walkthrough up as a means of my "coming out of retirement" kinda deal.  Well
   I'm still hard at work with it, but I figured as much that I should at least
   put out there some character walkthroughs as well.  I was planning on doing
   this in the first place once I got the full walkthrough up, but I figured
   what the hell....lets do it now.  So with that being said I'm here to give
   you all this guide on Vanessa.

-  As with every other guide that I've wrote, this guide is my own property!  I
   happily made this for all to enjoy and to use, and all that I ask is that if
   you are planning on using this for your site, then just ask me for permission
   ok.  I'm really easy to get along with and generally don't mind it so long as
   you ask for my permission first.  Don't go thinking "Oh he'll never say ok,
   lets just rip the guide and post it anyways" because that's a flawed way of
   thinking.  Just give it a shot sometime and you may be surprised!  My e-mail
   box is always open!

-  A big reminder to everyone out there....if you're looking for updates to this
   guide, then head on over to www.gamefaqs.com.  I write for that site and that
   site only.....or at least, that's where the guide's origins are.  Any update
   that I do will hit there.  I don't really plan on keeping up with how many
   other hundreds of sites have my guides up for their use and have to go and
   update it on their site as well, so save yourself some trouble and headache
   and check my guide out at GameFAQs ok.  I really don't want to deal with a
   million e-mails asking me about updates and info and such when I'm telling
   you now what to do.

-  Backstory  -

-  When Vanessa learned that J6 was targeting Sarah, she volunteered to protect
   her, and infiltrated the Fourth World Fighting Tournament as a security
   officer.  But midway through the tournament, Vanessa suddenly lost contact
   with her team and disappeared.  After a few years passed with no leads on her
   whereabouts, Vanessa was suddenly found unconscious in a room in the Bryant
   home.  When she came to, she could only remember events up to midway through
   the fourth tournament.  Her body, however, showed signs of conditioning and
   training beyond anything she remembered.  As Vanessa struggled with her lack
   of memories, she learned of the fifth tournament.  Hoping to find out what
   had happened, Vanessa decides to enter the tournament.

-  Personal Opinion -

-  Ok....here's basically my take on Vanessa:

   It's hard for me to place Vanessa in a means of who she is really meant for,
   either a beginner or an expert.  She has quite a few techniques that take
   quite awhile to getting use to, yet when I gave her a spin, she had more
   than enough simple combos and strikes to destroy opponents.  I would put her
   into a Jeffry category, but it's not like you can just haul off and do
   whatever you want and still win matches.  She does require a degree of
   practice in order to finally get down right, especially if you're planning on
   learning her inside and out.  If you're just wanting to pick up on her
   though just to see what she's about, then she still has plenty of the basics
   that seem to put her skills up there with that of a pro player even in the
   hands of a beginner.  A true expert Vanessa player though is a force to be
   reckoned with.  Where Vanessa's strengths lie is in her blitz offense
   tactics, her quick strikes, her counter game, and her solid defense.  You
   could say that she has the total package, and you could be right....but she's
   not without her flaws!  Though she does have the answer for any situation
   given to her, it all depends on the stance that she's in.  That's right.
   You have to switch back and forth between her two stances in order to gain
   either her full offensive tactics or her full defensive tactics.  This can be
   a big pain in the ass given that most of the time if you're using other
   characters, it just becomes second nature to use your offense and defense
   without hindrance.  So basically what you have to do with her is not so much
   learn her inside and out, but learn every other character inside and out!
   This way you'll know what you should use and what to stay in majority of the
   time given whatever character you're faced with.  If you know that by
   fighting Jeffry or Wolf that you have the speed advantage, then stay with her
   offensive stance and stick to using blitz tactics and stringing combos.  Like
   wise if you're fighting against El Blaze or Eileen and know that you're out
   classed in speed and blitz tactics, then switch to primarily using her
   defensive stance and tactics, using her counter game to your advantage.  So
   I would say that basically use Vanessa as you would see fit against likewise
   opponents.  It all basically falls upon your own skill against players and
   the computer when thrown into various situations.  So in the long run when
   using Vanessa it matters more on how you react to players and the way they
   fight more so than learning her inside and out.  You must be ready for
   anything with her and know what techniques to use and how to use them on the
   fly.  So going back to whether or not she is a beginner or an expert
   character.... well the verdict's still out.  An expert can appreciate the
   extremely deep gameplay that she offers up, but be turned off by the fact
   that she's not as fluid a character as just about the rest of the roster is.
   While a beginner will love how much Vanessa can offer and if this is a
   beginner's first character for this game, will be able to learn Vanessa far
   more easily than a person who's been playing the game alot longer than
   others.  Still a beginner can be easily overwhelmed by many given the fact
   that they still lack the knowledge of the game or the other characters and
   what they are capable of since they have no clue how to yet judge other
   players or characters.  I would say approach Vanessa with this knowledge at
   hand and at your own discretion.  She can be a true force to be reckoned with
   yes, but not until you've definitely put in the long haul of time behind her.
   All in all though....a sexy mama like her is more than enough for any one to
   enjoy to the fullest extent....beauty and brawn is something that doesn't
   come around very often!

   Ahhhh....the final chapter of this glorious guide of mine....to think I
   finally made it this far.  This part though isn't written entirely by me...
   This part is written by all of you!  That's right....no matter what I say or
   do to tell you things about characters or explaining their ins and outs,
   everyone has their own style and their own way doing things with each
   character.  In that respect I give to all of you this section.  E-mail in
   your tips, tricks, and fighting techs that you find to be useful for the
   given character in the given situation you're in.  The only way this
   section can get bigger, is by all of you, so flood my e-mail box ok!  I know
   it's at the top, but for convienence my e-mail is:

(Credits)

-  First and foremost I give credit to Sega for coming out with one kick ass
   fighter.  I've never been so jaw dropped before by a fighting game with all
   that it shows off.  I'm still going strong with it, so I think I'm now
   turning into a Virtua Fighter fan!  Way to go Sega, by making an addictive
   game like this!

-  Secondly I'd like to give creds to all of those out there that asked for me
   to come back and make more walkthroughs.  You have no clue how much I missed
   doing these, and just because I'm in the Marines, doesn't mean I have to 
   retire from walkthrough writing!  Thank you for all the support and e-mails
   that all of you have sent telling me how good my past walkthroughs were and
   that you all wanted to see more.  Without the support, I think the drive and
   the love for walkthrough writing would of left me a long time ago.

-  If there's anything that you wish to add or correct in my walkthrough, then
   by all means, shoot me an e-mail at sanctuary_remix@yahoo.com.  I'll take
   your comments and concerns seriously and get back to you as fast as I can.
   You will be given the proper credit as well for contributing to my guide.

   Thanks again, and I'll sees yas all later!
