Kain R. Heinlein FAQ

Legal poo-

Garou Mark of the Wolves and all characters/trademarks/whatever else are complete
property of SNK/Neo geo or anything i'm forgetting.

We all know the drill from here. Don't steal my faq, you may not use it without
my permission(though i'll more then likely let you if you get my permission^_^).
If your some big wheel like gamespot or run some magazine you cannot use this guide
period(though why would you want to?o_o). I've heard my share of stories about
faq writers being "ripped" by certain groups and I don't want that happening here.
Now, without further adieu..on with the faq!


I decided to make this walkthrough after noticing a shere lack of stuff dedicated to
Kain on this site. Kain rules and defiently needs his own guide, so thats what the purpose
of this is of course. Now before we get started i'd like to say I am by no means some
grand combo master or tournament champion. I've watched my share of combo exhibitions,
can barely do most of the stuff as of now, but i'm still practicing. I just started to get
back into 2d fighters last year thanks to a good friend of mine, Kyosuke(no thats not his real
name, but he loves going by that aliases). Anyways, I had been looking for this gem of a game
for a very long time after hearing about it at gamegen.com(a very great fighting game site
by the way, check it out by all means after you read this). About 5 online stores later,
being ripped off or told it was on backorder forever, I got lucky and found it on ebay, brand
new for only 30$. Let me just say that I would of paid 70$ once I got this game and saw
how awesome it was and how it plays like a dream. I'd go out on a limb and say the controls
are friggin perfect! Plus the game sports some of the most beautiful 2d sprites i've ever seen
and it lacks the slow down/awkward feel of the Guilty Gear games(don't get me wrong though,
i'm a big ggx fan too XD). So, if your a 2d fighter fan or just love fighting games AND have
a dreamcast, go buy this game NOW. Its worth it..trust me.
Alittle bit about the author-

I've always loved videogames. I went through a big rpg craze after playing FF7 and
Breath of Fire 3 in the 5th grade but it preety much ended after rpgs started getting
really bad, more cinema and graphics then actual gameplay. That's probably why I like
2d fighters so much, they combine the 2d graphics I love so much and require true skill
to master against other actual players.

Besides videogames, I like swords(saving for a broad sword too as of now),training with them
and anime, as well as several other things not worth listing here.

Some of you probably know me as Tiamet Magus,Eros Thanatos and countless other names
on the bravenet chat system. On Ezboard you'll find me as Fallenangel Kira Sakuya.

Anyways, on with what your REALLY here for.

I-Control guide


X-Light punch
Y-Hard punch
A-Light kick
B-Hard kick

QCB=down,downward left,left
QCF=down,downward right, right

Any move that I have labelled with -briefly- means to just hold the directional
button for a few seconds(maybe 2 or 3)then release to the rest of the move's formation.
If your a newbie to fighting games its sorta confusing at first, but once you get it 
down(which should'nt take too long)it'll become second nature.
II-About Kaine

up by my comments)

Whoa, this guy is just too cool. He wants to create a world where only the
strong survive! Shishio Makoto must of been his mentor or childhood hero or something and
we ALL love Shishio, plus this guy likes apple pie. We have a winner!! Someone give this man
a medal.

His entrances and victory poseses..(sorry..no translations as of yet. I dont want to steal
stuff out of these other people's great guides)

Entrance 1-Kain holds up his hand as blue flames sprout out, then he brings back down.

Entrance 2-(Vs Grant)He points his hand forward then says something in japenese and sounds
badass. Too bad I don't know what hes saying.

Win-Kain turns his back to the fallen opponent.

Final Win -Kaine spreads his arms and blue flames erupt over him in the shape of a cross.
VERY cool looking, probably my favorite victory pose.

Taunt-Kain points to his opponent, while saying something.(I wonder what?;_;)

I know i'm missing alot, so if you happen to find anything please contact me.(contact
info is at the end of the faq)

III-"The power of the schwartz!!"(move list)
(or what a scrub would call "Kaine's 00ber cheap m0vez!!")

I swear, Kain is a very awesome character and final boss in Garou..but is it just
me..or do his moves scream "psyco drive"?(or driver, Street Fighter fans will know
what i'm talking about). Oh well, Kain still owns you. 


Schwartz Flame-back*briefly then*forward+X or Y

Dat's one spiffy projectile, if you press Y the fire sails
upward instead of forward. 

Schwartz Panzer-back*briefly then*forward+A or B

Schwartz Panzer..? I keep getting the feeling this was 
schwartz panther..but hey..panzer sounds cool. I LOVE
throwing this move into a sudden kick to piss off my friends,
but I don't know how effective it would be in a real toury.
Like always the stronger variation has better range 
and distance. Keep in mind to alternate strategy with
Kain's projectiles, don't just go postal on someone
with either or you'll get predictable FAST.

Schwartz Recht-down*briefly then*up+A or B

Fwa ching! I guess this is Kain's answer to
Rock's rising tackle. This variation seems to get
one or two more hits in, plus involes a sweet looking
projectile. Use this on people who like staying in the air :).

***Breaking Move


Hitmmlisch Arten-QCF+QCF+X

This is a nifty super that comes down from above. It's saved my 
rear a few times when opponent were'nt expecting it, but it tends to 
get blocked alot and I prefer Kain's macht's to this. Not bad though.

Hitmmlisch Hecht-QCF+QCF+A

I highly recomend walking to the farthest end of the screen, fire this
thing, then fire a schwartz flame when your opponent does'nt expect it.
Laugh as he gets engulfed in the fire storm. If your some elite combo
master then the possibilities are endless with this. Me sees alot
of painful possibilities..


Note-This moves require a full gauge at the bottom of your screen. 
Only when it's flashing with a large "P" for power, will you be able
to execute these.

Hitmmlisch Arten-QCF+QCF+Y

Basically a more powerful, sweeter variation of the super move. This time
your opponent gets about three times the fire power from above. This is great
when it hits..or you could..

Hitmmlisch Macht-QCF+QCF+B

Or you could just send this one into your opponent, following thestrategy above for
the super,then watch your opponent become history. Practice and practice more so you 
can do this move without hesitation,it's preety easy and very powerful.


V-Kain's different suits(alternate colors)

Nope, you don't have to beat everyone in story mode, with all SSS ranking to
unlock alternate colors, its a simple matter of pressing one of the buttons
on your controler as Kain is highlighted(same goes for everyone else)

Each suit is ranked on a scale of 1-5(*'s), 1 being the worst, 5 being the

X-This is Kain's default suit. Blue'n white. It reminds me alot of Rufus Shinra off
FF7 but that's just me. Preety nice.

A-Basically the same suit,the white looks alittle err..dirty? Black is now in place
of where the blue was on the default suit. Nice I guess..

B-This suit is THE shiznit!! It's crimson with black gloves and lining. Without
a doubt my favorite suit in the line up. Hes even got silver hair now! But is it just me, 
or does Kain look alittle like Xion off Bloody Roar 3 now?..ehh..it's just me.

Y-Blonde hair, black suit, red gloves..you get the picture. Awesome, but his B suit
takes the cake for coolest.

VI-Contacting the author

Ok..first off..I know my guide sucks, but its' my first true, so be easy on me. Alright?^_^
If you send me any spam,chainletters begging me to forward to 40 people in an hour or else
a young girl will haunt me for all eternity, expect to be blocked. I've got alot of tolerance,
I hate blocking people on my IM programs..but needless to say if I get this or a virus(I hate
flames, BUT I will listen to them)expect to never hear from me and expect a nice block.
The IM services are basically the same, don't send me the things where you to pass it to 30
people. Also, back to the email, DO NOT email me asking me how to do huge combos and the sort
with Kain. I made this guide because Kain needed one and I feel like this is my own little
contribution to such a great game. If you want to email me some combos to put in my guide,
feel free to do so, you'll surely be put in the credits and it'll help this guide be alot
