    go in vain!  With that being said...
    Who that man is?  I'm sorry to say that Assassin is not Hwang, despite speculation
    such as having the same body, similar moves, or Hwang is out on a mission in disguise.
    Assassin is a generic character that is fought against in Weapon Master Mode.
    He cannot be used in Arcade, Survival, Time Attack, or Weapon Master.  He
    occupies one of the three slots at the bottom of the Character Selection
    screen where the Random (question mark) selection is.
    Assassin combines move of the famous coast guardsmen Hwang (who shared
    moves with Xianghua in SC1) and Yunsung without the Crane and Landwalker
    If you were wondering where Hwang is during the SC II timeline, he is
    defending the coasts of Korea under the command of Admiral Lee Shun Shin.
    Rest assured, he is not dead.
    *PART 3. LEGEND*
    You see your numeric pad often indicated on right side of keyboard?  Well
    if you cannot see your number some reason, here is another way to know what
    I'm talking about.
    7 8 9		7 = up+back	8 = up		9 = up+forward
    4 5 6		4 = back	5 = neutral	6 = forward
    1 2 3		1 = down+back	2 = down	3 = down+forward
    A = Horizontal
    B = Vertical
    K = Kick
    G = Guard
    WC/FC = while crouching / fully crouched
    WR/WS = while rising / while standing
    8WR = 8-way Run
    + = simultaneous input (i.e. A+B, B+K)
    ~ = slide input (accompanied by small letters, a~B, b~B, a~K, etc.)
    ( ) = optional input
    [ ] = hold button
    * = can be delayed
    _ = OR (as in either this direction OR that direction).
    L = low attack
    M = mid attack
    H = high attack
    SM = special mid attack
    UB = unblockable attack
    GB = guard break
    GI = guard impact with types of attacks specified
    Crumple		after attack, enemy is falling to ground
    Collapse	after attack, enemy is instantly on ground
    Turn Away	after attack, enemy steps in another direction
    Launch		after attack, enemy is in air for generic juggles
    Airlift		after attack, enemy is in air, but little to no air time
    Bounce		after attack, enemy bounces off the ground and into the air
    Low Fall	after attack, enemy catches self near ground
    Knock Down	after attack, enemy falls in a certain direction, direction specified
    Spin		after attack, enemy spins like Michael Jackson, could be short or long
    Hop		after attack, enemy holds their foot in pain jumping up and down
    Currently this is a less detailed move list without recommendations.  Meaning,
    I cannot suggest strategies for ring out strategies, reliable juggles, advanced
    fake outs, soul charging madness, and other mad beatdowns.
    There may be some discrepancies within the move list, some could be damage/notes or even
    the command (heaven forbid!).  I'm a bit iffy on the 8WR 3_9 BB because I haven't played
    in a few hours.

    Only suggestable combos / attacks.
    B,K,G, rising (WS/WR) A,B, then juggle of your choice.
    B,K if your opponent is side stepping.
    Notes : The first combo is broken up, so it can be guarded in between.  However, during
    the guard, the 2nd rising hit will guard break/crush.  Run in and grab the opponent,
    chances are, many who guarded to begin with will still want to guard.  The second combo is
    for those that sidestep the first hit and you don't want to leave yourself open.
    B+K, 3B, 1B
    Notes : If the 1st hit lands, the opponent will be in the air, allowing you your own juggle.
    This is only one air hit and one wakeup, but nevertheless, decent damage.  Less reliable,
    but more damaging is B+K, 3B, 44B+K.  If the enemy is not quick to move, a stronger wrath
    will be upon dem.
    Notes : This is a pretty linear air juggle and will only work against the practicing dummy
    and human opponents who are not aware of air control exists.  If you just want the two
    air hits, then 3B 6BA.
    More to coming soon, I'm so sorry.
    Q : Is Assassin just Hwang in disguise?
    A : No, Assassin is a generic character for combat purposes only in Weapon Master Mode.
    Q : How do I unlock Hwang...errr Assassin?
    A : After completing Weapon Master Mode once, in Subchapter 3 (Pollux) play Stage 2 as
    an EXTRA MISSION.  Completing it should net you an Assassin.
    Q : How do I unlock Subchapter 3?
    A : In Chapter 8, complete Stage 2 (the one at top left).  It will open a path to
    Subchapter 3.
    Q : What do you mean EXTRA MISSION?
    A : When you complete Weapon Master Mode (Chapter 10, Stage 3), each of the missions
    you played earlier will have a second, harder mission to complete.  New stores, features,
    and places to explore will be available to you, so...what are you waiting for?!
    Q : I unlocked Assassin and I can't select him.  Where is he?
    A : Assassin can only be used in Versus, Team Battle, Practice, Battle Theater (CPU),
    Extra Versus, Extra Team Battle, and Extra Practice.
    Q : Why don't you have Soul Charge information?
    A : Because I don't know what/how to do Soul Charge lv2 and lv3...if I do, they're on
    accident or I don't know I'm doing it.  I'm sorry.
    Q : Why don't you have strategies here and stuff?
    A : I don't feel qualified to discuss strategies with Assassin when there are so many
    Hwang, Yunsung, and Xianghua masters out there who have dedicated more than enough time
    learning how to use Assassin to the best only to have me suggest fraudulent or
    inefficient  strategies/suggestions.  Please forgive me.
    Q : If you do have strategies, are they going to suck?
    A : Maybe.  But who knowsh.  Reliable juggles and soul charge information would be nice.
    Q : Is Assassin just a Yunsung clone?
    A : Nah, but he incorporates some of Yunsung's moves into his fighting.
    Q : Why do you have buttons like A, B, K, and G?  My controller doesn't have K or G.
    A : I'm using the Arcade description of input.  Since each controller may be different
    and even more so, your own controller may be different from
    Q : Do you love Hwang Sung Kyung?
    A : Would I do this sorry excuse of a FAQ if I didn't?
    Q : No really, do you love Hwang?
    A : ...What?
    Q : Where do I send suggestions / corrections / complaints to your FAQ?
    A : tigerkidde@yahoo.com
