    Deflect Explaination  
    
    
    The New D button Deflect is similar to the sword reflecting counter in
    Samurai Shodown 2, where if the player deflects the opponent's attack, the
    opponent will be stunned for a short moment. On the other hand if the
    player misses the deflect, there will be enough time for the opponent to make
    an attack. [ Above quoted from MM Cafe *see credits section]
    
    
    D or fw+D                   To deflect upper normal attack
    dn+D or fwdn+D              To deflect lower normal attack
    fw+D			    To deflect upper special attack
    fwdn+D			    To deflect lower special attack
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                     Storyline
      The two worlds which existed from ancient times, the human world and the
                                    Under world.
     These two distant worlds have been connected from the past by the Gate of
        Hell, guarded by four deities who must always stay in the shadows of
                                      history.
      As time passed and 200 years from the reign of the Tokugawa Government,
      people began to fear as their shallow world of peace quickly faded away
     with the rumors of the resurrecting Demon. The long peace which had taken
     place not only pressed greater fear amongst the people but also took away
                 the swords and samurais, leaving  almost no hope.
     But not all hope was lost. There were still those with hope and hearts of
                                       fire.
                  ...And there were those with lust for the Demon.
       Thus the last of the fighters began their journey, to learn and finish
                         whatever destiny awaited for them.

          standing in front of the corpse of their teacher, the swordsman.
       Kaede who respected Moria for his Swordmanship but more as a brother,
      quickly saw his world crash behind him and attacked Moria. Moria did not
    even try to dodge and was slashed, then left the Dojo behind without a word
                                         .
       Five years later, Kaede decides travels to learn the truth to what had

    さまよう悪夢 紫鏡    Shikyoh  "Living Nightmare"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    34 years old. Shikoh not only has one sword, but two nasty looking ones. He
    was perviously a member of the Shinsengumi but with a different reason from
      Washizuka's: he just wanted to go on a killing rampage. It did not take
      long for the group to figure out his true reason of joining, and Shikyoh
                      escaped before they could prosecute him.
    
                                     Storyline:
     The Gate of hell and the rumor of the Demon's resurrection did nothing to
       Shikyoh but make him want to kill even more. But for Shikyoh it meant
     nothing to kill commoners; what he really wanted to massacre were a preys
     that fought back well so that it would satisfy his quench for good blood.
     When a mysterious man appeared in front of Shikyoh and told him that there
       were prey to be found, it was eminent for Shikyoh to accept the offer.

    江戸の喧嘩桜 天野 漂      Hyou Amano "Romancing Wanderer"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    28 years old. A playboy who loves to live life as it is, Amano's three food
       groups is Sake, Women and Fighting. He seems to always carry a Shougi
                        (Japanese Chess) piece and a stick.
    
                                     Storyline:
       From his usual "professional's house", Amano looks out the window and
                               rarely for him, sighs.
                  "What's wrong? You're just not yourself lately."
    "You see that Sakura tree? Look at it, its pedals are all falling off. ...I
      bet that there's someone out there who doesn't know how what's needed to
                                    enjoy life."
                Amano then stands up, getting ready to take a walk.
     "Hey where are you going?" asks the professional lady... as Amano replies,
                           "Out to Bust some ass, baby."

    黄土からの使者 李 烈火     Lee Rekka "Oriental Justice"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     20 years old. The First SNK character to use Shoulin Martial Arts. Unlike
     most other characters in the game, Lee is from China. His weapon seems to
             be a fan, but uses it a bit differently from Mai Shiranui.
    
                                     Storyline:
    Lee learnt his martial arts in a land different from Japan. Seeing a bloody
       red shooting star fall in the East, Lee felt that an evil presence was
     about to resurrect- a force so strong that it would eventually affect his
                                  country as well.
      Thus Lee decided on a journey to travel east to a foreign land, to stop
                     evil from spreading anywhere in the world.

    最後の忍道 斬鉄      Zantesu "Last Ninja"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     A 52 years old Ninja. As a ninja he has tricky moves and unique moves such
      as multiple projectiles from the air and reflectors. Moving only in the
      shadow of history, many of Zantetsu's fellow ninjas deceased in wars and
       when Zantesu realized, he was the only remaining ninja. As Ninjas were
    quickly becoming the thing of the past, Zantetsu tries to prove that ninjas
                             are the ultimate warriors.
    
                                     Storyline:
     "There is no one stronger than I.  No, there cannot exist such a thing..."
      His voice faded into the darkness just like himself, and where he stood
     there was another corpse. The fighter who foolishly considered himself to
       be the strongest was no stronger than a new born baby in the hands of
                                     Zantetsu.
                   "No, this doesn't prove my strength at all..."
        In other words his present action was just a "normal murder", not a
                              challenge to the death.
    As Zantetsu searches for a proof of his strength, he hears to rumors of the
    Demon's resection and travels to find the Demon, hoping that its death will
                        be the final proof of invincibility.

    闘う隠者 玄武の翁    Okina the Genbu  "Fighting Hermit"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     128 years old. Okina is known as "The Genbu", one of the four guardians of
      the Gate of Hell. Although he has retired, he is strong enough to defeat
                             243 fighters in one time.
    
                                     Storyline:
      Year ago Okina was assigned the job to guard the Gate of Hell because of
    his excellent sword skills. Normally a peaceful man who likes to fish, five
     years ago, a boy named Kaede came to Okina's place. Okina taught Kaede all
    he knew about swords, and Kaede quickly learnt up to a point where he could
                                 even defeat Okina.
     But one day, Kaede decides to journey away. Okina was not stupid enough to
    realize that it was without reason, and decides to follow Kaeda, slowly but
                                     steadily.

    鉄腕猛虎 直衛 示現   Shigen Naoe  "Iron Tiger"
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    36 years old and huge enough to be called a giant. Also one of the guardian
    of the Gate of Hell. Although usually quiet and peaceful, Shigen was sealed
     off by his best friend and ever since his seal had been opened, his anger
                                 bursted in flare.
    
                                     Storyline:
    A roar of vulgar shaked the air as Shigen's seal was broken since 10 years.
     For ten years he could not move a single finger, and he finally stood up.
    Shigen felt his muscle powered up more than twice before he was sealed, and
    his muscle burst in anger. Inside his anger and pain, Shigen's control over
    himself was of no more. The only thing left in his mind was revenge towards
              a name... a name that echoed in his head all ten years.
