    vers. 1.2.7  - Done on 5/23/2004
                   Update made in loving memory of Kao Megura, a
                   legendary FAQ writer who passed away last week.
                   May he rest in peace, and may wherever his soul
                   goes be the best place in existance...
    	     * Added the move lists of the extra characters in
                   the Playstation 2 version (Goenitz, Orochi Iori,
                   and Geese.)
                 * Made more changes in general.
    
    vers. 1.2.6  - Done on 8/1/2003
                 * Fixed an error regarding Shingo's SDM Running Pheonix
                   Phosphorous command.
    
    vers. 1.2.5a - Done on 7/31/2003
                 * Updated the Disclaimer to add another hosting site,
                   a German cheats/FAQ site known as Cheats.de.  Aside
                   from that, nothing's changed.
    
    vers. 1.2.5  - Done on 7/30/2003
                 * Fixed more errors, including one in Leona's section
                   in relation to her Gliding Buster which I failed to
                   correct until now.  I can't believe I neglected to
                   do that...
    
    vers. 1.2.4  - Done on 7/1/2003
                 * Completed King and Shingo's sections now that the
                   Dreamcast version is released, and added the ways to
                   get them, Kusanagi, and Rugal in that version.
                 * A few more errors have been fixed, too.
    
    vers. 1.2.3  - Done on 6/3/2003
                 * Corrected a few more things, and finally added in
                   Maxima's Type M-2: Maxima Beam DM, which I
                   *somehow* managed to leave out of this mini-FAQ for
                   seven versions in a row.  Agh.  Thanks to Arzang
                   Baygan for the heads-up!
                 * Added in King and Shingo's sections as placeholders
                   until the Dreamcast version of the game is released
                   and all the information is released for them.
    
    vers. 1.2.2  - Done on 5/24/2003
                 * Basically, more corrections!  I also added one bit
                   for Clark that should've been in there before.
    
    vers. 1.2.1  - Done on 5/21/2003
                 * Just made a few tiny corrections.
    
    vers. 1.2    - Done on 12/28/2002
                 * Eliminated the number notation for good.  Sad to
                   say, no one in the universe likes the number
                   notation.  Oh well, at least the FAQ will be worth
                   reading to most people now.
                 * More errors fixed.
    
    vers. 1.1    - Done on 12/27/2002
                 * After witnessing three people in a row on the
                   GameFAQs Fighting Game message board complain about
                   the number notation, I was about to change it to
                   the conventional notation when my friend suggested
                   that I compromise by doing it both ways.  The
                   commands are now in both notations.
                 * I also forgot to list Kensou's meat bun DM! Egad!
                   Oh well, it's in now.
    	     * A few more errors fixed.
                 * Made a small amount of renamings.
    
    vers. 1.0.2  - Done on 12/27/2002
                 * Fixed a few more things.
    
    vers. 1.0.1  - Done on 12/27/2002
                 * Modified my e-mail address above to thwart spammers
                   who harvest e-mail addresses.
                 * I forgot to put in Ryuji Yamazaki's new DM.  Ack!
                   It's in his section now.
                 * Some typos fixed.
                 * Modified the Special Thanks section.
    
    vers. 1.0    - Done on 12/20/2002
                 * First version!

     == 1.0 BEFORE WE START... ==
    
         ...let me introduce myself.  My name's Eric Baker, a.k.a.
    The Green Herring, or A Large Trout on the GameFAQs Message
    Boards.  I was surfing the MadMan's Cafe bulletin board on
    December 19th, 2002, when I came across a post in a topic
    related to the latest King of Fighters game in the series as of
    this writing, The King of Fighters 2002, which mentioned that
    there were no complete move lists for that game in the English
    language ANYWHERE on the Internet.  Were it not for that post,
    I would not have been inspired to start a topic in the
    Orochinagi.com message board's KOF2K2 forum which would have
    complete move lists for everybody in the game.  I finished
    writing down complete move lists up to the move lists for the
    Ladies Team before I had to get to sleep.  The next day, on
    December 20th, 2002, I was writing down the move lists for the
    Korea Team and I showed my friend Matthew "Emmy" Massey the
    thread.  I then mentioned to him that I would give permission to
    any budding FAQ writers to use my move lists after I was done
    with all of them, although I wasn't sure I should give permission
    to Gunsmith, the head honcho of Orochinagi.com, when I remembered
    how the detailed section for Ramon in HIS KOF2K2 FAQ had nothing
    but a message reading, "SCREW RAMON! mYAYAYHAHAHA."  No offense,
    but... um, when you do a general FAQ, aren't you supposed to
    cover every character in the game?
         Anyway... after I mentioned that, Emmy suggested that I
    should write an FAQ myself and show Gunsmith what for.  I decided
    that I would write this Mini-FAQ and put the remaining move
    lists, along with the already-completed move lists, in it.  And
    so, I wrote the legal disclaimer for it (which I think I'll use
    in later FAQ or FAQ-like creations of mine,) then did the table
    of contents.  Now I'm writing this little introductory section,
    and it's still the 20th of December as of this writing.
         I hope you find this Mini-FAQ useful in any way.  If you
    wish to use any of the information in here, ask for permission
    first.  Either that, or at least credit me for it.  Simple as
    that.  Also, be aware that this is my first FAQ EVER, and thus
    there may be some errors in it.
         With that, on with the show!
    
     == 2.0 MOVE LIST LEGEND AND TERMINOLOGY ==
    
         First off, here are the controls.
    
       -- Controls --
    
               (T)
    u/b u u/f                  J = Joystick
       \|/          (B)(C)(D)  d/b = Down-Back
    b---J---f    (A)           d = Down
       /|\                     d/f = Down-Forward
    d/b d d/f                  f = Forward
                               u/f = Up-Forward
                               u = Up
                               u/b = Up-Back
                               b = Back
                               T = Start / Taunt
                               A = A Button / Weak Punch
                               B = B Button / Weak Kick
                               C = C Button / Strong Punch
                               D = D Button / Strong Kick
    
         Now comes the notation I'll be using in the FAQ.
    
       -- Notation --
    
    A   = Press the A button / Weak Punch button.
    B   = Press the B button / Weak Kick button.
    C   = Press the C Button / Strong Punch button.
    D   = Press the D Button / Strong Kick button.
    AC  = If two or more buttons are listed next to each other in a
          command, that means to press those buttons simultaneously.
          This, for example, translates to "Press A / Weak Punch and
          C / Strong Punch simultaneously.
    _   = Charge previous direction.
    +   = Press the previous direction and then the preceding
          buttons simultaneously.
    .   = This separates button presses for button-combo moves.
    j   = If this is seen at the beginning of a command, it means
          the attack must be done in mid-air.
    (j) = If this is seen at the beginning of a command, it means
          the attack can be done in mid-air.
    qcf = Quarter circle forward (d, d/f, f.)
    qcb = Quarter circle back (d, d/b, b.)
    dp  = Dragon Punch motion (f, d, d/f.)
    rdp = Reverse Dragon Punch motion (b, d, d/b.)
    hcf = Half circle forward (b, d/b, d, d/f, f.)
    hcb = Half circle back (f, d/f, d, d/b, b.)
    
         Examples include...
    
    qcf, hcb+AorC - Press down, down-forward, forward, down-forward,
    down, down-back, and back, then the A / Weak Punch button or the
    C / Strong Punch button.
    
    b_f+D - Charge back, then press forward and the D / Strong Kick
    button.
    
    A, A, f, B, C - Press Weak Punch, then Weak Punch again, then
    forward, then Weak Kick, and finally Strong Punch.
    
    jqcb+CD - Press down, down-back, and back, then the C / Strong
    Punch and D / Strong Kick buttons simultaneously in mid-air.
    
    hcf+B - Press back, down-back, down, down-forward, and forward,
    then the B / Weak Kick button.
    
         And now comes the explanations of the individual sections of
    the move lists.
    
      -- 2.0.1 Throws --
    
         By pressing back or forward and then either C / Strong Punch
    or D / Strong Kick simultaneously when close, your character can
    throw the opponent.  Usually, all C throws throw forward, and all
    D throws throw backward. You can escape from throws by pressing
    back or forward and then either C / Strong Punch or D / Strong
    Kick simultaneously when being thrown.  Some characters can
    perform a mid-air Power Toss by pressing any direction except up,
    up-back, or up-forward and then either C / Strong Punch or D /
    Strong Kick simultaneously when in mid-air and close to a mid-air
    enemy.  Unlike ground throws, they cannot be escaped from.
    
     -- 2.0.2 Command Moves --
    
         Command moves are on the level of normal attacks, but they
    require an extra directional input to perform them.  Some of them
    can be cancelled into other moves, and others cannot.  Some of
    them cannot be blocked either high or low, and some can be
    blocked at either height.  All characters have command moves
    except for Ralf Jones of the Ikari Team -- who has not had any
    since the beginning of the series -- and Mature of the KOF'96
    Team.
    
     -- 2.0.3 Special Moves --
    
         These are basically the characters' trademark fighting
    abilities, the moves that set them apart from other fighters in
    the world.  They require harder (but not so hard) motions to
    perform than your normal attacks, such as a quarter circle
    forward or a half circle back.  They also do damage even if
    blocked.  If they are blocked, they do a pixel of damage.
    
     -- 2.0.4 Desperation Moves --
    
         These are also known as "Super Special Moves" in Japan, and
    are called DMs for short. They are stronger versions of Special
    Moves, which are done using two buttons, have harder motions than
    Special Moves, and use up one stock in your Power Gauge.  In MAX
    Mode (activated by pressing B / Weak Kick and C / Strong Punch
    simultaneously, which uses up one stock,) they will take no
    stocks to perform, but they will end MAX Mode if you do them.
    
     -- 2.0.5 Super Desperation Moves --
    
         These are also known as "MAX Super Special Moves" in Japan,
    and are called SDMs for short.  They are most often like DMs,
    except they're stronger in some way and you must be in MAX Mode
    (activated by pressing B / Weak Kick and C / Strong Punch
    simultaneously, which uses up one stock) to perform them.  When
    performed in that mode, they will use up one stock in your Power
    Gauge and MAX Mode will be ended.
    
     -- 2.0.6 MAX2 Desperation Moves --
    
         A brand-new addition to the King of Fighters series, these
    are called "Hidden Super Desperation Moves" by the majority of
    the KOF community (HSDMs for short,) but the official name for
    them is "MAX2 Super Desperation Moves."  They are performed just
    like SDMs, except they often have more complex motions than SDMs
    and they can be only done with 1/6th of your life left.  Not a
    lot of them, however, are actually practical...
    
     == 3.0 CHARACTER MOVE LISTS ==
    
         Now, the moment you've been waiting for... the move lists
    for everyone!  Before we go on, though, I'd like to mention that
    just to be different, when a move name is usually in Japanese, I
    will write the name in English.  Some of them are direct
    translations, some of them are slightly modified, and some of
    them are completely made up if the original name doesn't make any
    sort of sense when translated normally.  A great example is
    Chin's special move performed by doing the Dragon Punch motion
    (forward, down, and down-forward) and then either the A / Weak
    Punch button or C / Strong Punch button simultaneously after
    doing his Drinking Cup Leaning move, which is performed by doing
    a quarter circle forward and then either the A / Weak Punch
    button or C / Strong Punch button simultaneously.  The four kanji
    for the move's original name translate to this: "willow
    phosphorus sagebrush pig weed." Obviously, that makes no sense at
    all, so I renamed it "Drunken Wheel" for this Mini-FAQ.  Also,
    all the commands listed here, as with any move list commands, are
    done when facing the right.  If you are facing the left, reverse
    accordingly (e.g. when facing the left, change "qcf+A or C" to
    "qcb+A or C.)"
         Now, then, on with the move lists!
