                     FAQ -v5.01 REACTIVE FINAL- by Gunsmith
    -The last things that you want to know:
     - The Iori striker combos.  Iori's flame must hit the opponent
       as they land from a jump.  
     - Not all the combos work.  Please refer to Serpent Wave's
       combo FAQ.
     - ALL Infinite Bugs are explained here: 
     - Yes, Jhun is a big fan of Athena.  Calvin said he spotted
       confirmation in the Technical Mook.  This explains all the
       Manga frolics that you have seen.
     - All speech and vs introductions are in a updated form in 
       a seperate "Speech FAQ" available only at www.gamefaqs.com
     - Omake Teams COMPLETE!
     - There are one or two more bugs.  Bulletin Board will 
       advertise development.
     - Is something burning in your heart, that you feel you 
       need to tell the world through this FAQ? .... Email.
    -After Feb 1st, there will be no further updates to this FAQ.  
     Anything else of interest will be posted on the Bulletin Board.
     If you want to know a quote translation please email me or 
     post on the bulletin board.
    -Within this FAQ, you will find movelists, combos, infinites, bugs,
     story, bio, speech translations, winposes descrip, endings, neo geo
     CD info, and all manner of miscellaneous information on the game.
     This FAQ works as an companion to Kao Megura's FAQ, in which you 
     will find detailed move description (including which moves work 
     in combos in counter mode), movelist translation, dip switch info 
     and more!
     What you won't find in this FAQ is an attempt to copy from other
     FAQs.  This FAQ started on the 30th July and is ongoing.  I don't
     see how another FAQ on KOF'99 can possibly have "found out" their 
     own information as, to put it bluntly, it was here first.  Kao 
     Megura sent me a translation list which I have now removed as
     he has his own faq.  This FAQ is made from my own efforts of 
     researching information and helpful contributions sent to me or
     posted on the Bulletin Board at my homepage.  They get credit.
     We deserve credit.  Don't be fooled by FAQ's which are double-
     spaced in order to look bigger or claim to be working on getting
     info which IS ALREADY HERE.
     Beware of cheap imitations.

    18th Jan  - I'm back but there isn't much more to add.
                Little corrections here and there... 
                I noticed Neo Geo Website has released quote
                info for the first time!  Taken out most 
                speech where it's just the character shouting
                the name of the move unless it's different
                translation to that of Kao or he never 
                translated it.  If you want to know translations
                of moves that have been in the game since
                KOF '97, simply refer to Kao Megura's '97 Faq.
                There are some differences with my translation,
    19th Dec  - Released this version at Gamefaqs since no-one
                is obviously in touch with the minor updates
                at the homepage.  This version still needs some
                tidying up with the new info I got, but I'll
                be away till 10th January... Merry Christmas!
    17th Dec  - Woah, busy bee!  Sat down with Mai-chan and went
                through the soundtrack comparing notes with 
                Kao's KOF 97 Faq.  Mai gave up by the time we
                got to Women Team.  Anyway, we've updated the
                quotes.  Found some quotes I can't match to 
                the game.... hmmm..... well, some got translated
                and some didn't.  Time to call on Kao for some
                discussion.   David, I wan't my jishou back!
                Found another sleeper, oK'?  CPU Guide added.

    The format of the faq is now in original Japanese names only. 
    I had started doing translations but I've erased them to give
    way to Kao Megura's FAQ.  Please refer to his FAQ for these.
    This season I've worked predominantly on quotes.  Of course,
    Kao Megura's KOF 97 FAQ gave me cause to double check the 
    translations I found using his research.  Great work, Kao!
    Originally, it was just me, Mai-chan and several dictionaries.
    Kao popped up and we discussed the transition of Japanese to
    English.  What you don't realise is that some official English 
    movenames from SNK USA are totally different to the original 
    japanese movename.  This gets confusing.  When we translate,
    we use literal meaning and common sense that's appropriate for
    fighters.  I didn't agree on some things with Kao, but now 
    that he has his own FAQ you can make up your own mind.  In some 
    cases we are both right, even though we give different 
    Remember that Japanese has many meaning for the same word.  Same
    like other languages if you think about it.  If I write something
    different for the same word, don't worry; it's correct in that
    context -  Different meanings for different situations.  Of course
    there could still be some errors, so email me if you feel 
    perplexed that you're not imitating your favourite character
    Once again, the japanese version has multiple end quotes for each
    character :(
    If the character says something when they do a move and it's not
    listed, that means they are shouting the actual name of the move
    which is in the movelist.  If you're not convinced, leave a 
    message on the bulletin board or email me.

    Striker System       : B+C
    Counter Mode Activate: A+B+C (need 3 power guage stocks)
    Armor Mode Activate  : B+C+D (need 3 power guage stocks)
                  --System Info: The CM and AM modes--
     -Counter Mode:
    You need 3 stocks for this.  In this mode, you can do DM/SDM 
    (depending on red energy bar) ad infinitum (Some DMs come out
    quicker than others, these are the ones you can combo with)
    Skilled players will prefer to use this mode in combos, as you can
    combo certain special moves into SDMs;eg:Terry QCF+A into QCFx2+B...
    Counter Mode lasts for approx 18 seconds.
    After that you can't charge stock for about 10 seconds.
     -Armor Mode:
    You need 3 stocks for this.  In this mode, when you get hit you don't
    get "damaged"- you don't get the animation and recovery time that you
    would normally.  You still lose energy though.  The real bonus is you
    won't suffer any tick damage from blocked specials in this mode.
    Note: You do get pushed back when you get hit so you can't try
    stupid stuff like walking through a fat combo to get in a throw-
    you will lose too much energy to compensate.
    Armour mode lasts for approx. 9 seconds.
    After that you can't charge stock for about 10 seconds.
     -Slide Dodge/ Attack:
    This is the combined Advanced and Extra Mode of KOF '98.
    If you press A+B + Back, you slide back but then hop forward
    automatically (You cannot Dodge Attack).  You can cancel the 
    hop forward by performing a special move.
    In counter mode you can combo a special move with dodge attack.
    If you press A+B while blocking you will cancel guard and slide
    forward/backward (costs 1 stock)
    In counter mode you can combo a Command attack with dodge attack.
     -Striker System:
    Press B+C to call out your striker.  You are invincible for the
    second that you call out the striker.
    You will taunt and then the striker appears, so forget about using
    them as part of a combo.  However you can use them as combo starters
    as some will hold the opponent or set up a juggle!  
    More on this in each teams section.
    Note: Some Strikers do more than one action depending on the 
          opponent's actions...
    The return of the red flashing energy! Woohoo!  You need
    1 stock to execute a DM.  Well, if you have 1/7 energy left, when
    you do DM it will be SDM.  Actually this is proving to be quite
    annoying; With 1 stock Terry can do some serious SDM damage if
    he can connect with a Stand C (arguably the easiest combo
    starter in the game)
    Every time you do a special move or block attacks, your bar
    fills up.  Once it is full, it empties and an icon appears
    next to indicate a stock.  You can build up to three.
    However, Stocks DO NOT transfer to the next player.  So you may
    as well use them like crazy if you are about to die.
     -Character Selection:
    The sequence is now secret to your opponent.  The characters
    are listed according to buttons A B C D respectively.
    Press the buttons in the order you want to play the characters.
    If you want to reveal your character order, hold start while
    selecting characters.
     -Color Selection: 
    Hit B when selecting characters.  Only two colours available
    this year :(
     -Selecting Winpose:
    Hold the corresponding button as soon as you've defeated your
    opponent.  This works for Timeout win also.
                       --Control Shortcuts--
    The shorcut control system still exists in '99.
     DP + P/K
     can be executed thus:
     Fwd, (neutral), Dwn-Fwd + P/K
     P + QCF + P
     can be executed thus:
     Fwd, Dwn-Fwd + P (hold P), Fwd
     P + QCFx2 + P 
     can be executed thus:
     QCF, Down, Down Forward + P (hold P), Fwd
      - The same method applies with HCF combos 
     Low B, Low A, QCFx2 + A
     can be exectued thus: 
     Dwn + B, QCF + A, QCF + A
     P, QCF HCB + P
     can be executed thus:
     QCF, Down-Forward, Down, Down-Back + P (hold P), Back
    Where there is no special move designated for a movement
    EG: HCB will not do anything for Clark
    use it to buffer a combo.
    EG: HCB + P, HCB + P (Clark)
    will execute
    P, HCBx2 + P 
    When you hold a button, no special moves can be performed
    and you cannot run.  However, it allows you to buffer moves.
    Eg Clark
    Hold A, HCF + C, (let go A), HCF + D
    will execute: 
     C, HCFx2 + D
     HCF etc
     can be executed thus:
     Back, Dwn, Fwd (only good for keyboard users o_O)
     note this doesn't work for QCF.
     Low x, x, QCFx2 DM/SDM
     Eg Ryo
     Do Dwn B, QCF + A, QCF + A
    In counter mode, motions which overlap DMs are effective.
     Eg Terry:  
     QCF + A, QCF + B will do: Power Wave, High Angle Geyser.
    While running, you can charge for a move.
     Eg Leona
     Fwd Fwd, Hold Down Fwd, then press Up + P when you want
     to execute Moonslasher.
    I've noted that the guy/gal who illustrated the KOF 98 intro (not
    the match end graphics, which were horrible I might add) is now
    fully illustrating all the character potraits in KOF 99...
    which are niiiiice! :)
     [4. P R O L O G U E  S T O R Y-----------------------------------]
    Invitation cards were sent to fighters all over the world.
    A new King of Fighters tournament would be held.
    However, there was no grand media attention like last year
    The fighters wondered who was behind this years organisation?
    There was a new rule in the regulations:  Striker Match!
    Many couldn't conceal their bewilderment at this.  It had
    never been done before...
    Heidern felt suspicious and sends Ralf, to investigate the
    organisation behind the tournament.
    Benimaru is invited to KOF as a member of a special team: his
    team members include two names he had never heard before;
    K' and Maxima.... though Beni is perplexed as he had
    never heard of these names in the grapple field, he boldly
    What is the Striker match?
    Is there something hidden in the tournament?
    Various mysteries are conceived, and so the saga continues...
     [5. M O V E L I S T S--------------------------------------------]
                             Heroes Team
    Benimaru received the invitation to the King of Fighters Tournament
    again, as usual.  But he found that two boxes at his team entry are
    already occupied by two new names: K' and Maxima... What's the
    deal about that?

     1. Jumps in C, then does a slide (same animation as teleport).
         You can make the two hits combo if you hit the opponent 
         in between the jump C and the slide.
     2. If they opponent is jumping he'll do Crow Bite.
    [Round Start]
    Takes off sunglasses and says 
    "Ore hitori de, juubun da..." 
    (I'm just one person, but that's enough....)
    Stands up straight with his thumbs in his pockets, grins and says 
    "Namenjane-zo teme-!"
    [QCF + K] 
    "Black out!"
    [QCB + K]

    "Yarujya ne ka"
    (Oh you're good eh?)
    [QCFx2 + P]
    "Owari ni suruze"
    (I'll finish it)
     -K's invincibility during his Dodge is instant.  He is only 
      invincible for the first frame of the AB Dodge.  Trying to dodge
      through attacks with more than 1 frame of attack is suicide.
      To dodge fireballs, K' has to dodge at the very last second.
     -If you charge K's QCFx2 + C DM or SDM, it's unblockable.
     -When K's idle, he goes to sleep too! (but the 'sleeping' 
      animation is not as nice as Bao) He will put his hands on his 
      hips, blinks slower and slower...and then his eyes will be shut.

     -vs Whip
       She does her dp  + any button move.  When she lands, throw 
       her with K`s b/f C throw,and she bounces high off the screen 
       from the impact. 
     -@NCR: Call a striker, eg Andy. QCF A, Fwd D. Repeat QCF A, Fwd D.
            -The thing is, the Trigger must not hit,only the fwd D.
             If you're in counter mode, it's easier. In armor mode, it 
             works too, but the gauge of this mode is shorter (and heck
             why not do the Dodge Attack Infinite instead?).  
     -@CR:  Juggle with eg: Andy Striker, AM Mode, Dodge Attack x i.
            -Many characters have this kind of infinite...

    [Round Opening]
    Shingo appears in his tracksuit top doing some squatting leg 
    stretches saying "O-ichi ni san shi" (1,2,3,4,) He then gets up 
    and takes off his top saying "Shingo, ichiban te ikkima~su!"

         on crouching opponents!  His Jump CD hits twice on counter.
         202 Shiki: Kototsuki Mikansei -This is his "new" move.  
         He rushes forward like Kyo's HCB + K but when he lifts 
         them up he does Kyo's Jump Dwn C to knock them down.

    -Trolling is a form of fishing in which you trail the line behind a 
     slow-moving boat.  It's very popular for catching large, 
     ocean-going fish like marlin, wahoo, and tuna...

    -The monkey has appeared in various episodes of Terry's stage in

     hear any jokes about spanking the monkey.  He pats the monkey,
     nothing more...
    -High Angle Geyser/Hawaii Angle Geyser: The latter is the official
     english name for the move.  What Terry actually says is debatable.
     I've checked the soundtrack and it still sounds like 
     "Oh my Shit...Geyser!!!" but this may be a joke started by Gamest
     magazine in '97.

    Holds back his hair and motions a "C'mon" with his hand saying 
    Kao - I always saw "Koppou" translated as "bone breaking", but it
        actually means "knack" or "understanding".  Since Andy learned
        Shiranui ninjitsu from Hanzou, I suppose it means that he has
        learned the ninja arts, or else basic ninja techniques.
     -Andy can cancel his CD counter like Clark.  If you get a 
      Counter Message, you can combo with Dwn Fwd A ....

      Do an early jump D to hit Kyo on the top of the head (Kyo does 
      not block).  Because of the early hit, Kyo has time to recover
      and hit back.  Kyo does Dwn B x i (which goes right through Andy)
      useless really, but hey, it's a bug.

     His Jump B aims downward now, and is now much more
     useful for jump-ins (thank god). His Jump C has

     work, Mai's hair suddenly covers her eyes - and I know why.
     This move is possibly the most erotic happiness throw I have
     ever seen.  Sorry, but that IS Shermie doing that move, not
     Mai.  Mai grabs the opponent's head, rams it to her crotch...

     -QCFx2 DM as a counter takes 50% damage.  On SDM it takes

      opponents.  After chaining it, either throw or DP the opponent.
      It also nullifies projectiles.

     -Did you know?: "Ikari" translates as "Getting Angry"?
     -Orochi Leona is THERE.  Kind of.  Win pose and in her new DM 
      which is Heidern's Soul Drainer (but doesn't give her any energy).
     -Earring Bomb 1:  There are two types.  It depends on which 
      Earring Bomb 2 she uses first;
      RDP + B ---> QCB + B or D = Bomb is thrown short distance and
      can juggle.
      RDP + D ---> QCB + B or D = Bomb is thrown far.
     -Bomb 2 takes approx 3.48 to detonate but will defuse if Leona
      gets hit.  After attaching the bomb, you can continue to combo
      but it doesn't show on the combo meter.
     -There are ways to avoid getting hit by Bomb 2... I've jumped
      "out" of it with Clark once... there are other "freaky" 
     -Is Leona the only character with multiple animation for sitting
      down?  She sits down, flicks her hair, waits, then does a "I'm
      ready to catch" pose!  Also when she stands, she bounces around
      then stops, holds her hands out and freezes, then goes back to
      the bounce.  Well... it's not as bad as Andy eh?  OH NO! BAO!
     -After you knock down the opponent, or throw them across the 
      screen, throw the earning bomb, then immediately run and jump B 
      at them. This is a guarantee hit because the bomb hits low and 
      the air attack must hit high!

     -@CR: Stand near the opposite end of the screen and make sure your
           earring bomb is the short one (so do RDP + B).

    [QCB HCF + K]
    "Taiman hataatara... Dachija!!!" 
    (You were careless... my friend!)
    [SDM QCFx2 + P]
    "Otokono iipatsuda korya!!!" 
    (This is it! THE punch!)
     -No Max damage Backhand (Far C) for Ralf this year (T-T)
     -But the 100% GP Counter is still there (^_^) QCFx2+P SDM, hold P
      ... Terry does QCB + A... autoguard .. BOOM.
     -Blue Mary, Ralf and Lucky Glauber share a passion for Baseball...
     -HCB+ K knocks out sweeps too!!!
     -Ralf's Galactica Phantom has full autoguard (as you know) but it 
      can be knocked out by a [Dwn + D sweep].  This was true with 
      Iori in '97 (haven't checked it for 2 years eheh).  However...
      some characters cannot knock him out with their down D sweep if 
      it hits Ralf knee area, such as Shingo and Terry.  Galactica 
      Phantom can be avoided by some crouching characters.  The 
      Galactica Phantom will just pass over their heads.  Only five 
      characters can crouch to avoid it: 
      Xiangfei, Bao, Chin, Choi, and Jhun (Yes! Jhun!).
    o-Ralf------------------------------------------Interesting Combos-o
     -vs Chang: Ralf can dodge attack and low D.
     -Jump C, C, qcb hcf+b/d(SDM), striker ryo, hcf+b/d (100%)
     -Call Robert, Dwn C, QCFx2 + P SDM!!! (Easier with QCF + Cx2) 
     -Call King, Hold K, King juggles, Release K, QCB HCF + K SDM!!!
     -@CR: Ryo Striker, Jump C, Dwn C, QCB HCF + K SDM, Ryo Striker,
           HCF + K (101%)
     -Chin Striker. Wait for Chin to Taunt.  HCF + B/D.  Chin should
      hit opponent before they land on your hands.  You will freeze.
     -Using Ralf as a Striker: When the opponent flies into the air 
      after using Ralf as a Striker you can standing combo them just 
      as they hit the ground (the bug is that they are suddenly 
      standing when you hit them)

      invincible for the first frame of the AB Dodge.  Trying to dodge
      through attacks with more than 1 frame of attack is suicide.
      To dodge fireballs, Whip has to dodge at the very last second.

    o-Bao-------------------------------------------Interesting Combos-o
     -Cross up with DF+B, Terry Striker, QCB x2 +A/C DM
     -There are various combos using his F, HCF + K DM, but the best
      one I've seen is below...
     -The opponent must be near the corner.  Set yourself on the other
      end of the screen.  F, HCF + K SDM.  Run and jump D, call King
      Striker, HCBx2 + P and HCBx2 + P again to juggle and claim 100%!!
    Same as Athena, Mai in theory.  Just bounce of the wall and do a
    HCB + C in one fluid motion so that Bao jumps off the floor straight
    onto the wall and off again and does HCB + C but ends up doing 
    Fwd + A.  Thus he is in the air.
    Vs Whip (From the Bao faq by Edwin "Shinji" Chow)
    -Have Bao execute Psycho Ball Attack.Rise. At that exact spit second
     time, have Whip grab Bao with her Boomerang Shot special move. This 
     will result in Whip getting hit by the projectile before she can 
     step on Bao. As a result, Whip is bounced off and Bao is still 
     hanging in the air with his face still with that suffering look! 
     Whip can move but not Bao. All of Whip's move both special and 
     normal can't hit Bao. The only thing that can inflict damge on Bao 
     is her Sonic Slaughter DM.

    [Round Start]
    "Soredewa, hajimemasuyo." 
    (Well, let's begin.)
     -You cannot guard crush combo Jhun.  His recovery is too quick.
    o-Juhn------------------------------------------Interesting Combos-o
      -do hb a,(a guard) c,( no guard) c ,sdm. 18 hits
      -you do striker ryo hb a,(a guard) c,( no guard) c ,sdm.20 hits
      -counter mode hb a,(a guard) c,( no guard) c ,hb d, dm 21 hits
      -counter mode striker ryo hb a,(a guard) c,( no guard) c ,hb d, 
       dm 22 hits (you can use iori striker instead of ryo and you win 
       2 hits)
     -@CR: catch opponent jumping or use striker, jump Dwn B x i
      <from Kao Megura>
     -You have to activate Counter Mode, get into his d,d +
      B stance (Soshuu Jin), then press D for the evade
      move.  Supercancel that into his Hou'ou Ressou Kyaku
      (qcf,qcf + K)--but don't forget that you have to
      release B first, and that you have to do the motion
      really early or it won't supercancel.
      Anyway, once the super's over, Jhun will be able to
      walk right through his opponent!  He can keep doing
      this until you use either slide, you throw your
      opponent, use the evade move (taikyoku-hi) again, or
      if your opponent hits you.  Kinda useless, but fun.

      screen; walk to your opp. until you reach the point of when you 
      do a A+B escape, you will barely pass throught you opp. and 
      switch sides. Then WAIT a little before calling Shin Kyo striker. 
      If you don't wait, Kyo-1 will call the striker while being 
      turned away and this will mess the placement.
      While you call, do the FULL QCB, HCF+P motion and hold P until 
      the hit meter reaches 6 (unlucky) or 9 (lucky! ^^), release, 
      and finish with QCF+C. 13 Hits, 98% damage, I think it would be
      100% with a counter...

    *The pics are available from the Mook at the website*
    -Beni vs Real Kyo 
    Kyo says nothing.  Beni is now part of the New Hero Team.  Kyo is 
    once again his rival.  There is a high tension in the air.
    Beni looks at Kyo then strikes the air with a flash...
    -Shingo vs Real Kyo 
    Shingo is suprised to his sempai after so long.  The last thing
    Kyo said to Shingo was to get some Yakisoba bread for him...
    Shingo hides behind his arms and screams: "KuuuuuuusaNAGI-SAN!".  
    Will Kyo be suprised to see how Shingo has grown?  Will he be 
    impressed to see how Shingo got this far?  Kyo shows no emotion.
    -Shingo vs Kasumi 
    Shingo gets out his notebook to check a move he says
    "Fukushu Fukushu... Nani??".  Kasumi is angry because she 
    wants him to be serious about this match.  She says
    "Techounanka miruna!" (Don't look at your diary!!!)
    -Andy vs Mai 
    Mai holds out a baby that cries "Papa Papa"!  Andy is shocked
    (to say the least).  However this is Mai's ventriloquism and 
    a ninja trick.  The baby is actually Mai's fan.  Mai giggles.
    -Terry vs Mary
    Terry greets Mary by taking off his cap and bowing.  Mary 
    says "Let's fight Terry!"
    -Kensou vs Athena
    Athena stands up and poses saying "Gambarimasu!" (Study
    hard!).  Kensou says "Wai wa Athena no knight yasakai!" (I'm 
    Athena's Knight (in Shining Armour!).  Athena doesn't notice.
    As she is about to finish her pose she notices Kensou and says 
    "Nani?" (What's up?).  Kensou droops over, flabbergasted.
    -Athena vs Bao
    Athena crouches to Bao's height with her hands on her knees.

    Study hard!).  Chin nods.
    -Bao vs Kensou
    Bao stands up straight.  Bao says "Ganbarimasu!" (I'm going to
    Study hard!).  Kensou stretches his neck and says "Honmonono 
    chugoku kempou Oshietaru wa" (This is real Chinese Kempo.  
    I will teach you.)  ...then strains his neck.
    -Chin vs Kensou
    Kensou eats a bun and chokes and says " (I almost died!)
    Chin nods.

    says "Iiroro, oshiete kudasai, ne?" = "Please teach me (A LOT), 
    -Kim vs Chang
    -Choi vs Jhun

    (Kyokugenryu member, please fight to the finish!)
    -K' vs Kyo
    -Leona vs Whip
    Whip is facing away from Leona, whip held behind her back and 
    her eyes closed, and rocking back and forth.  Leona, meanwhile, 
    is crouching down, not looking at Whip, fixing her boots.  
    Leona looks up at Whip, then stands up and says "Omatase"
    (Sorry to keep you waiting).  Whip then turns to face Leona 
    and they begin the fight.
    -Clark vs Leona/ Whip
    Clark flips his cap.
    -Leona vs Clark/ Ralf
    Leona salutes.
    -Ralf vs Whip/ Leona
    Ralf salutes casually.
    -Real Kyo vs Iori
    Iori says "Kutabari zokonaataka!" (You should be dead!) and 
    Kyo replies "Teme-no tsugo-de ikcha ine-yo!" (Why you.... I 
    don't want to live at your convenience!)
    -Ryo vs King
    King has a hat on and looks at Ryo, she says
    "Hisashiburi ni, tanoshimisou ne!" (Long time no see! You will
    enjoy this!) and throws her hat.
    -AOF Team:
    Each does their stance.  
     Ryo vs Robert: Stance then their rapid punch/kick.

    -Kensou vs Xiangfei
    Kensou will eat his bun and Xianfei will look at him all hungry.
    You'll hear her stomach growl and then she'll say 
    "Ii na...onaka ga heta na.." (That looks nice...I'm hungry).
    -Ralf vs Clark
    Clark takes off his cap and holds it with one hand.
    Ralf gets down on one knee and says "Kakatekina Clark!!!" 
    (Come on Clark!!!) Clark flips his cap and then puts it on 
    saying "Okay Rarufu!!!"
    -Chang vs Choi
    *Rehabitation Hell Never Ends*
    They notice each other with a small spark.  They look like they're
    about to do their VS intro from '98, but instead they both lean
    forward with head down and let their arms hang limp (like they're
    exhausted).  It looks like they realise (because of Jhun) there is 
    no chance in hell they can try to escape this year!
    -K' vs Krizalid
    -Whip vs Krizalid
    Krizalid grins and says "Anata to tatakara koto ni naru da ro."
    (I'm going to fight with you!).  Whip loads her gun and points it 
    at Krizalid saying "Honto no ko o mada shiranaii no ni."  (You 
    still don't know the truth...)

     [11. C P U  G U I D E--------------------------------------------]
     This is no definitive guide BUT some of the characters do have
     a certain fighting style.  This guide is based on Neo Geo Home
     System, Level 8 setting.  Bear in mind, the CPU is not totally
     stupid.  In general, if you attack succesfully twice, the CPU
     will try something different- of course this is when you mix up
     tactics- you'd be suprised how the CPU will fall for tactics
     normally reserved for human opponents.  But there are also 
     those occasions when the CPU seems to be reading your joystick 
     input and goes totally insane killing off all your team with 
     horribly offensive maneuvers which you've never seen the CPU
     use before... The CPU also cheats a little, executing charge
     moves without any apparent charge, prevalent with Leona, 
     Robert, Kim and Jhun.
     - Xiangfei 
     She seems to be the most totally predictable idiot in the game.
     She'll come at you and do [QCF + P].  Dodge past it and combo.
     If you jump from far away she'll try to DP you, so stay on 
     the ground.  Has been known to try and use some high low
     attacks if you block many of her [QCF + P]s.
     - Takuma
     A barstard.  Will stand there and if you don't do anything,
     start throwing [QCF + P].  If you jump, he'll do stand B which
     knocks out a hellova lot of air attacks.  You'll need a well
     aimed and fairly early jump CD for this.  If he pins you in
     the corner, he might just do Stand C (which confused me 
     a few times, I can tell you) which totally misses.  Why?
     Because the average opponent tries to rush in and attack to
     which he responds with a [HCB + K].  He also uses his 
     [Fwd + A] in close quarter combat.
     - Terry 
     Power Wave, Round Wave, Crack Shoot.... yawn.
     - Athena
     Another idiot.  She'll do one or two [HCB + P] then teleport
     right into your combo. 
     - Mai
     Wait for her to do [QCB + P], coz she'll do it again.  Dodge
     and combo.
     - Ryo
     Skank.  He walks forward and [HCB + K] to anything you try,
     unless you can command grab him.
     - Bao 
     Stay away from him.  ^_^  He's an annoying and powerful little
     barstard.  Do not underestimate him hohooohhohooo!
     - Robert
     Robert's a real so-and-so.  He has the annoying ability ala 
     Kim and Jhun to _walk_ forward and as soon as you jump, he does
     [Hld Dwn, then Up + K].  Expect this at the beginning of a round.
     Stand up or sit down?  Remember his Fwd A has raaaaange and high
     priority with the actual kick; lag it may have, but what options
     do you have within that millisecond?  Hop Back and hope he does
     a [Low D] which you can hop over (presuming you haven't already
     been tripped up by it).  Once at far range he'll start doing
     multiple [Hld Back, then Fwd + P].  This is when you've got
     to get in close.  At fast and furious close combat Robert will 
     lose.  King smacks him about like a rag doll.  (Well okay, she
     smacks a lot of people around like a rag doll- isn't that 
     Chang's job?).  Occasionally Robert will go into counter mode
     and do [Hld Bk, then Fwd + P] then [Fwd, HCF + P] till he runs
     out of bar.  Has never done his new DM to my knowledge but will
     combo you when he gets the chance: eg: [low B, stand B x2, 
     Hld Dwn- then Up + P, Hld Dwn- then Up + K] and in counter mode
     [Hld Dwn- then Up + P, QCF HCB + P]!
     - Chang
     He'll either run forward and [Dwn Fwd + A] or start doing
     [Hld Bk, then Fwd + A].  Simply dodge this and combo.  Beware
     jumping on him, especially when he's getting up as he'll often
     do [rapid A].  He will go into Armour Mode as soon as he can-
     dodge the [Hld Bk, then Fwd + A] and throw him.
     - Chin
     He loves doing [Dwn Dwn + K], don't he?  Run up to him and 
     throw or combo- but be quick!
     - Kensou
     He's funny.  Leaves himself open by trying to hit button
     mashers by randomly doing [QCB + C].  He does use his
     autogaurded [QCF + K] with effect and taunts you 
     every time he hits you with it, just to show that he 
     could have used his infinite.  Geh...
     - Yuri
     Is it me or does she do Dwn B, Low D as she's getting up 
     with unnatural speed?  She can [DP + A] pretty much
     any air attack and when she does her [HCB + K] watch out
     for her [DP + A] afterwards as it will outprioritise
     pretty much anything you try.  Try to out-poke her.
     - Choi
     Lucky for you, he doesn't follow up his [Fwd + A] with a DM,
     but he'll try to stab you a few times.  He always goes for
     a cross up, but isn't stupid enough to jump all over the
     place against DP characters.  So instead he'll walk up
     to you, poke you a few times and try to grab.  Note how he
     uses his jump CD like a DP because it's so damn instant!
     Stand Back and poke him and have ready your anti air 
     (if you have one.  If you don't jump back with an attack)
     - Shermie
     Oh damn she's not in this game!
     - Leona
     Bitch.  She'll use her [Fwd + B] all the time.  
     - Joe
     That Kill happy short wearing punk... (he's one of my 
     favourites!).  He'll [HCF + P] and [DP + K] anything that moves.
     Seems to be vulnerable to any attack on him as he's getting
     up (probably because he's trying to [DP + K].  Combo him like
     he deserves....
     - Kasumi
     Bitch bitch bitch.  No offense to female readers, but...
     BITCH BITCH BITCH!  She'll counter anything you try to 
     attack her with and if you don't attack she'll stand a pace
     away and do [QCF + P].  She'll poke then expect a counter.
     To defeat her with ease, hop and throw.  Time your hop so
     you land in front of her as she gets up.  Both her and
     Mary use their counters as instant wake-ups, so DO NOT
     attack!  Unfortunately, sometimes Kasumi gets wise to all
     this throwing and then just does her [HCB + K] which 
     is an anti air anyway.  AND if she has more energy than
     you she will NEVER attack.  
     Oh well... back to the drawing board!
     - King
     - Ralf
     He'll walk forward and do [Hld Bk, then Fwd + P].  A couple 
     of stand CDs, Hop D, Stand C... He'll try [HCB + K] so wait
     for it.  When he gets the chance, he loves doing dodge then
     [low A, HCF + K].  
     - Iori
     Devious barstard... but gets too happy with his [HCB + K].
     Wait for that and nail him.  Don't jump or you'll get [DP + A]
     in your face.
     - Shin Kyo
     Block but watch out, he'll try to throw you.  Ummm... he's no
     match for Bao, if that's any help!
     [12. B O S S  I N F O R M A T I O N------------------------------]
    Krizalid appears in two forms... In single play mode, you have to

    Striker          : Stands at the edge of the screen.
    [1st Form]  Appears in a long coat.  He's always standing but 
                has a shin kick that acts as a sweep.  Shoots 
                King size fireballs that certain characters can duck.

    Defeating Krizalid:
    Form 1:
     -Kensou.  Do his DP +A, low A, repeat.
     -Shingo:  D, HCB+K, Kryzalid falls.  D, HCB+K, Kryzalid falls. 
     -Benimaru:Jump with CD. (repeat)
     -Real Kyo:D, HCB+D, Kryzalid falls. (If no fall, HCB+D until he 
               falls) D, HCB+D, Kryzalid falls. (repeat)
     -King:    D, HCB+B, Kryzalid falls. (If no fall, HCB+B until he 
               counters)  (get close to him and repeat)
     -K:       When close, C, fw+ A, then QCB+B. (repeat)
     -Anyone:  This works better with characters who have a long 
               heavy-attack during the jump (like Athena and Yuri) 
               or have a long Middle jump (like Athena and Bao). You
               just have to be a little away from Krizalid and do a 
               Middle Jump forward to him with a heavy-attack; he'll 
               fall on the ground, so you Middle Jump back and Middle 
               Jump forward + CD again when he's up. If it doesn't 
               work in the first time, don't worry, because he's dumb 
               and won't defend many times. A good time to start doing 
               this is the time before he executes his Negative Anguish: 
               your player will jump the shot and hit him. This way 
               sometimes works for defeating his second form, you 
               Middle jump forward while he's doing his Typhoon Rage. 
               But you have to be very precise, or he will do his 
               uppercut, or hold you with his legs or anything else.
    Form 2:
     -Kensou:  Do his DP +A, low A, repeat.
     -Clark:   Knock him down, I suggest using SABB(HCF+k), after that,
               stand near him and perform stand close C(1 hit) buffered
               or comboed into SABB just as he's getting up.  If
               Krizeilid blocks it, he will automatically perform a
               backfist chop move which will leave him open and exactly
               right in front of you.  do another stand close C(1 hit),
               then SABB.  Just repeat the process until he's dead.
     -Whip     First, if he does that irritating Typhoon Rage, super 
               jump and knock him down with CD button. Whip's jump 
               CD move is fast and has good range.  Another way is to 
               stand at the other side of the screen and perform 
               'Assassin's Strike "BB"' D button.  Whip will launch 
               herself into the air and land EXACTLY NEXT to Krizalid. 
               Usually, he will block Whip but WILL NOT DO ANYTHING 
               (what a doofus). At this time, I'll throw him (D throw) 
               and finish up with dwn A. Just repeat this method till
               he's dead. It works most of the time.
     -Anyone:  When near Kryzalid, do crouching light kick/light kick.
               Kryzalid will roll forward.  Anticipating this, you can 
               perform combos on him... 
     -Ralf:    Corner Kryzalid by jumping over attacks.  Press A/C 
               repeatedly. (repeat) 
     -Benimaru:Jump with down + D. Jump back halfway and down + D. 
     -Benimaru:Jumping towards him and use QCF+P in air. (repeat) 
      Maxima: Call out striker. QCB+P when striker is out. Kryzalid 
              will attack striker and be hit by QCB+P. (repeat)
      Bao:    Double jump.  In the air, do QCF+ B.  Kryzalid will be 
              hit. [Perfect-possible] (repeat)
      Bao:    100% way of getting PERFECT! Jump backwards.  QCF+B. 
      Chang:  Just block anything that comes and immediately follow 
              with F+C. 
      King:   jump back, QCF+D 
      Leona:  Leona has to be one screen far from Krizalid, them just 
              do her bouncing earring bomb (QCB + B). Krizalid will
              defend standing, but the earring always touches the 
              ground and explodes on his feet. He NEVER defends this 
              move crouching, it always works! So, just repeat this 
              until you defeat him.

    Kyo's Story --
    After the battle with Orochi, Kyo found himself unconsious in a very
    dark room. He was drained of all energy and a hand was clutching his
    face. This person asks Kyo if he is Kyo and thanks him for his data.
    Kyo realises that something is taken from him and it's his blood.
    Kyo couldn't see this guy, but he can keep hearing him calling his 
    name.  Suddenly fire explodes everywhere and he saw someone standing
    in front of him. The word "NESTS" is engraved on his body.Another 
    explosion comes and blasts Kyo to a further distance where he saw 
    many dead bodies. And they are all Kyos! Kyo now realises what's 
    going on.  Someone has been making clones of himself. Kyo now again 
    hears this guy calling him. Without hesitation, Kyo quickly escapes 
    from this place. As Kyo escapes from this place, he says "NESTS! 
    You will pay dearly for this!"
    The above article is released from SNK itself and it tells that Kyo
    escapes from Kralizid without a fight.
    Iori's story--
    A group of soldiers assembles in front of him and get ready to fire.
    Iori said "Are you talking to me?" No one seems to answer him. He 
    asks again," Where is Kyo?" Instead the number of soilders kept on 
    increasing. As the soldiers are about to fire. An explosion came up 
    from behind and killed the soldiers.  Iori could now see a row of 
    men standing together and they are all Kyos!  Iori took a grenade 
    from a dead body and flung it at the Kyos. They all turned to 
    ashes.  Iori looked at the dead bodies and cried "Kyoooo!"

    *after defeating Krizalid*
    *blah blah Krizalid gets squished*
    K is talking to Maxima about Kyo. Halfway in the 
    conversation, K has a feeling that someone is hiding 
    somewhere, eavesdropping. Then he comes to a conclusion 
    that the person listening is Kyo. Then you have a bonus 
    round against Kyo. Using Maxima to win Kyo, the story
    continues. After defeating Real Kyo, the scene shows 
    Shingo, Benimaru, K, Maxima and Real Kyo. Benimaru and 
    Shingo ask Kyo where he has been and what happened to 
    him. K asks Benimaru and Shingo to run away. Then a 
    steel door separates K and Maxima from Kyo. K says 'I
    must beat you next time... if you can survive this.' 
    A lot of people come and shoot K and Maxima.

    Joe   : Ha Ha!
    *Andy running from the scene*
    *Mai running after him*
    *Mai falls over*
    *Andy comes back*
    *Credits end*
    *A hand grabs Andy*
    Andy  : ! Hey! You sneak!
    *Mai was faking*
    Mai   : Ha Ha Andy, now you're mine!
     Art Of Fighting (Takuma Sakazaki)
    The scene shows 4 persons running. Takuma lags behind, 
    and he got hit by a rock suddenly. He was down but 
    the other 3 continued to run; with tears in their 
    eyes. Then the credits. First picture shows a grave 
    with the Mr. Karate mask hanging on the grave. Next 
    picture shows the 3 of them putting flowers beside 
    the grave. The ending shows the 3 of them leaving the 
    grave. Suddenly, a hand burst out of the grave. The 
    screen displays a message : "To be continued?"
     Ikari Team (Whip)
    Everyone runs, but Whip is missing. One asks where she 
    is and someone replies that she has gone to handle 
    some unfinished business. Then another scene shows 
    Whip talking to Krizalid. Krizalid addresses Whip as 
    his sister, and asks her why she left the organization. 
    Whip replies saying that Krizalid is pitiful, and 
    doesn't even know he is being made use of. She tells 
    him that his memory is being implanted on him,
    therefore he is not what he think he is. Krizalid 
    refuses to believe and Whip asks him if he has any 
    idea of how their father looks like. Krizalid fails 
    to answer and Whip says that she herself realized 
    that she was being made used by the organization 
    and that was why she left it. Krizalid refuses to 
    believe that he is a clone, and Whip reveals to him 
    that he is actually a clone of K'. Then Whip leaves 
    Krizalid to die. After the credits, Heidern asks why 
    Whip is late. Whip says she has visited someone and 
    made peace with him. Then Heidern asks if he is okay 
    and Whip replies that he didn't make it. Then the 
    screen turns to show Whip crying.
     Psycho Soldiers (Athena Asamiya)
    When the 4 are running, Athena suddenly stops and 
    sees her ' Number One Fan' (the girl with the big 
    glasses) telling her where the exit was. Then the 
    credits. Pictures of them resting on a cliff are 
    shown. Then next picture is Kensou alone by 
    himself, throwing small pebbles. The ending is 
    Athena asking Kensou why he is so sad and Kensou 
    replies that although he has won, he still 
    haven't got his psychic powers back. Then Athena 
    hugs him from behind and says that they will 
    always be behind him no matter what happens. 
    Then Kensou's face turns red - eyes with love 
    signs - he fainted. Athena shouts to the rest 
    what did she do wrong, and Bao says that Athena 
    had overdone it.
     Psycho Soldiers (Sie Kensou)
    After defeating Real Kyo, Athena is being crushed 
    by falling rocks. Kensou drains Bao's psychic 
    powers to save Athena. The picture drawn on Kensou 
    is full of vigor and power.
     Neo Female Team (Li Xiangfei)
    Xiangfei says she is famished and asks the rest 
    about having some ' Dim Sum' ( snacks). The rest 
    agree. Next scene shows 4 of them eating, and 
    suddenly, at Xiangfei's side, the amount of empty 
    dim sum containers eaten by Xiangfei increased 
    so rapidly till the containers fill up the 
    picture. The other 3 members were shocked at her 
    food intake. Mary's mouth opened so big. But the 
    funniest thing is that King who is so amazed at 
    Xiangfei's speed of eating, actually pours her 
    drink on her own snack and causes it to overflow; 
    without realizing it. Then the credits. Next 
    picture is King whispering into Xiangfei's ear, 
    showing a big speech bubble with the '$' sign. 
    Then next picture is Xiangfei taking out her 
    purse. Xiangfei shakes the purse but she has no 
    money, and the rest of the gang refuses to let 
    her eat anymore.
      Korean Team (Jhun Foon)
    The 4 of them running. The first picture shows 
    Kim and Jhun Foon discussing bout Tae Kwan Do, 
    with Jhun Foon commenting bout Kim's style
    being outdated. Then the picture changed to 
    Chang and Choi talking to each other. They were
    complaining and saying they will never be free. 
    Suddenly Choi says, "Unless we...." Next screen 
    shows Kim and Jhun Foon talking again, but 
    suddenly behind their backs, a huge figure
    stands up. It is Chang, holding his chain-ball 
    above his head, ready to strike down the two 
    unsuspecting guys. Then the picture moves up to
    show the sun, and Choi flying up, with his 
    claws spread over, just like an eagle. Then the 
    credits start. The first picture shows shadows, 
    but we can see that Chang has squashed Jhun Foon 
    flat on the ground with his chain ball; and Choi 
    diving down, slashing Kim's throat with his
    claws while doing so. Blood can be seen. Next 
    picture shows Kim and Jhun dead on the floor and 
    the two celebrating. After the credits, the
    ending shows Chang and Choi looking up at the sky 
    with blood on their faces and bodies on the ground. 
    Then came the disappointment as it was only a plan 
    in their minds. Then they guessed that they have 
    become reformed. Kim and Jhun comes along. Kim 
    says that they are not fully reformed yet. From 
    the next day onwards, Kim will be in charge of 
    Choi and Jhun will be in charge of Chang for 
    maximum reformation training. The other two 
    replied with a "Yes, Sir!"
     Edited with real Kyo in your team *update by Gun*
    Everyone runs, but Kyo is missing. Another scene 
    shows Kyo talking  to the light (Kryzalid's boss). 
    Kyo asks why he/she is doing this. The light
    replies that only with Kyo's power, their plan 
    can succeed earlier by 10 years. Then the light 
    says goodbye, Kyo Kusanagi. Rocks begin to fall
    and Kusanagi exclaims arggh!
    After Credits
    Kyo standing on cliff
    Kyo "Nests Cartel.  I'm coming for you."
     Edited with Iori in your team *updated by Gun*
    Everyone runs, but Iori is missing. Another scene 
    shows Iori talking  to the light (Kryzalid's boss).
    Iori says 'Do you think your puny power could stop 
    me?' The light says that Iori is no pushover like 
    Kyo Kusanagi. Then the light says goodbye, Iori 
    Yagami. Rocks begin to fall and Yagami exclaims 
    arggh! After credits, Heidern and a bunch of 
    uniformed personnel examine Kryzalid. One of the 
    personnel says 'We tried to save him... but he 
    died before...'. Heidern asks 'Any other 
    survivors?' The personnel says 'There was one 
    other survivor. But there is no trace of him.' 
    The next scene shows Iori standing on a cliff. 
    'Kyo Kusanagi, wherever you are, I will seek you 
    down and no one can stop me.' 
    Note: you will get the same dialogue from Kyo and
    Iori talking to Nests if you meet them in the 
    game.  Also it doesn't matter if you win or
    lose against them- the game ending will not
     After defeating Kryzalid (Full Team)
    Kyo appears and ask the light why they are 
    cloning him. The boss will ask Kyo to defeat 
    your team. Then you will get a bonus fight against
    Kyo. After you win Kyo, the light will say that 
    it is because he needs power to fulfill the plans 
    for world domination, and Kyo's power can help
    them succeed earlier by 10 years. Then it was 
    revealed that K' is a clone created by them which 
    has ability that rivals Kyo's. Then suddenly the 
    light says goodbye and the screen starts shaking. 
    Kyo doesn't move and says "Arghh!!" The next scene 
    will show your team running.
