-  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 Dural.

-  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  -

-  Dural was previously a human woman. Her name was Tsukikage and she was both
   Kage-Maru's mother and a Kunoichi. When the mysterious corporation J6
   noticed her exemplary fighting ability and resilient body, they captured her
   and used her as their prototype for their terrifying Dural project. Arming
   her body with various cybernetic enhancements and brainwashing, she became a
   cyborg, immune to feeling. Technically, she underwent roboticization, though
   this isn't directly stated in the games.  Since then, Kage has attempted to
   retrieve Tsukikage and restore her to her former self, finally succeeding in
   Virtua Fighter 3. However, he needed parts to keep her inhuman body
   operational, and when he retrieved them, she became even less human than
   before. Now Kage enters the 4th tournament to end his mother's suffering and
   return her to normal.  Meanwhile, the J6 corporation has their eyes on Sarah
   Bryant as the subject for their next Dural project.  During the Fourth World
   Fighting Tournament, J6 released their true model; however it was defeated.
   This drove J6 to kidnap Vanessa Lewis. Although Vanessa escaped, her combat
   data was captured and transferred into a new model: V-Dural. J6 is now ready
   to test if their new advanced V-Dural is truly ready to defeat the world's
   best fighters - let the Fifth World Fighting Tournament begin...

-  Costumes and Clothes Set  -

-  There are no costume items that can be bought for Dural.  You can't use her
   in Quest Mode to get new costumes or costume parts.  She has 4 different
   "versions" though from what I can tell.  There are two costumes that you can
   use from the start, Costumes A and C.  I'm still trying to figure out if
   there is a way or not to unlock Costumes B and D if there even is a Costumes
   B and D.  But I believe I know what Costumes B and D are from what I've seen
   of Dural in other modes of play in the game.

   Costume A = Dural's "Platinum Steel" version.  This is the one most often
               seen in all of Dural's promotional pictures and videos all over
               the net and magazines.

   Costume B = Dural's "Black Steel" version.  Now I've only seen this version
               in the game when I was practicing in the Dojo while using Dural's
               Costume A.  She appears even more shiny than her Costume A, and
               gives her a much more sleek appeal than most.

   Costume C = Dural's "Invisible" version.  Now this is what I call impressive!
               I dunno if this version is in the Arcade or not, but if this is
               a way of showing off the PS3's capablities, then damn.  You can
               see through Dural, but not exactly entirely.  The light of the
               area around you bends around her body in a way to show you where
               she is at at all times.  So technically she's not truely
               invisible, but a window you could say.  Still, impressive none
               the less, and using this version could even throw off everyone's
               game of trying to look extremely close at what you're trying to
               do.

   Costume D = Dural's "Stone" version.  This is the version of Dural you see
               during the bonus boss fight at the end of playing through the
               series of opponents during arcade mode in the PS3.  When you goto
               the Sanctuary stage, she seems to be a statue that comes to life
               for the sole purpose of wiping the floor with you.  She isn't as
               visually impressive in this version since no light really bounces
               off her.  This would be a definitive costume for her to play
               against others since it sort of at least puts her on a level
               playing field with the rest of the cast.  Her body doesn't set
               off reflections of light nor is she see-thru.  She's a solid,
               easy to tell target....but that still doesn't take away from how
               deadly she is though!

   
   
   
-  Personal Opinion -

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

   She's friggin Dural!!!!!  I mean damn already....they talk about her
   constantly as a weapon throughout the story and character bios, so why
   wouldn't she be extremely powerful?  Her strength factor is ridiculously
   high, her defense skills are top notch, her speed is blazingly high, I mean
   there's nothing you can find about her that's wrong!  She has the best of
   everything and to make things worse in her favor, she has the best martial
   arts set in the entire game.  Why do you ask?  Well that's because she has
   every single best move, strike, throw, or combo that's offered up by all the
   cast of characters in this game.  She can defeat opponents in just two moves
   just like Wolf since she has access to his Giant Swing, and some of the
   hardest hitting strikes that can be offered up by any of the other characters
   in the game.  She has the best combos as well used by the likes of Akira,
   El Blaze, etc.  Not only that but her versions of their combos are blazingly
   fast and if you blink, you'll miss the whole combo!  They're hard to block
   simply due to the fact that the first hit is so hard to tell where she's
   trying to aim at because she throws the first hit at an incredible speed.
   There's not even too much of a learning curve with her since all of the
   moves designated to her are put in such a simplistic manner than where they
   originally come from.  If you can't use Dural, then you simple shouldn't be 
   playing this game at all.  A beginner can pick her up and own expert players
   like they're nothing at all.  It's hard enough to beat her when playing 
   against her as the computer, but when human controlled....in the hands of an
   expert she is by far the most deadly thing in this game.  I highly doubt that
   she's actually tournament legal, but for fun against your friends, go for it!


(User Character Tactics)

   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:

   sanctuary_remix@yahoo.com

   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!

(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!
