-  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 Jeffry.

-  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  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.

*** Jeffry McWild ***


-  Backstory  -

-  Jeffry had entered the Fourth World Fighting Tournament to raise funds to buy
   a fishing research vessel with high-end radar, but when he returned home, he
   heard from the local fishermen that the Devil Shark had been captured by J6.
   His rival, captured?  Jeffry couldn't believe his ears.  "I'm the only one
   who can defeat the Devil Shark!  No one else can touch him!  No one!  Driven
   by obsession, Jeffry tried to find out everything he could about J6, but even
   after spending all of his prize money from the tournament, all he learned was
   that J6 was the organization behind the tournament itself.  Unsure of what to
   do next, Jeffry's next move is decided for him when he receives an invitation
   to the fifth tournament.

-  Personal Opinion -

-'s basically my take on Jeffry:

   The hulking huge powerhouse of the game, equaled only by Wolf.  Even though
   he's all strength like Wolf, the two of them differ in many ways.  While Wolf
   retains a sort of techinical aspect, Jeffry is all about beating the living
   tar out of people.  Jeffry is a popular character that the computer and alot
   of people love to use him.  He has incredible reach that for alot of
   characters, poses a big problem of getting in close to him to even begin
   attacking him.  One of the biggest and probably his most glaring flaw from
   the start is his speed.  Jeffry is not a very mobile guy compared to most of
   the other characters.  He's still pretty quick for a big guy, but when you
   put him up against the likes of El Blaze....yeah....his lack of speed becomes
   extremely apparent.  Since he's basically the slowest in the game though,
   that gives him the stereotypical over the top strength factor.  All a good
   Jeffry player has to do is land like 2 or 3 strikes to basically either win
   the match or come real close.  As I said before, Jeffry isn't a techinical
   character, nor does he have a finesse of sorts....he's all about huge strikes
   and powerfully devestating throws.  You could say that he's a beginner's
   character, but then again you could say that he's an expert only character as
   well.  The way you could see him as a beginner character is because it
   doesn't take much to learn him at all.  He does have some simplistic combos
   but it's not like you have to learn them and use them religiously to win
   matches.  Just learning some big throws and his quick hard hitting strikes
   alone will be what makes you win matches.  Now as to why he should be an
   expert character is because only someone with a firm grasp on the game's
   mechanics and such could be able to compensate for Jeffry's slow speed and
   lumbering strikes to make his fighting style become something more than just
   simple hit or miss style.  I've seen expert Jeffry players use a tremendous
   amount of set up strikes and situations with walls, the enviroment, or just
   pop ups to set up combos with him that I would of never even thought of that
   he was capable of pulling off.  So I'm going to put Jeffry out there as a
   character to approach no matter who you are.  There's not going to be a huge
   amount of learning with the game's mechanics with him, but there is a comfort
   zone that you can find with him in relatively little time.  Just think of
   Jeffry as a character that you play as solely to abuse opponents and to just
   have some good old fun with rather than become a techinical player and learn
   the Virtua Fighter 5 game with.  One of the cheesiest things that you can do
   with Jeffry that he has going for him is his throws.  You can easily toss
   people over walls and get many ring out victories over opponents.  A very
   effective way to annoy people and get on their bad sides.  All in all Jeffry
   is a character that is something more or less that you have to play as to get
   your own sense of feel with and can have a total amount of freedom and fun
   with, rather than trying to learn a set amount of long combos and strikes
   and get an in-depth gameplan with to win matches.

   Ahhhh....the final chapter of this glorious guide of 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 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:

   I will give full credit to you that send in your tips and tricks, so be a pal
   and help out those around you by contributing to this guide!

   * Jeffry *


-  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  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!
