    Characters are listed in alphabetical order.  The moves are listed as
    follows: throws, special moves, command attacks, EX attacks, then that
    person's unique Dark Force.  If a move has no official name, it is
    written in parenthesis in lowercase.  The somewhat silly titles for each
    character are translated directly from the instruction manual.

     ES MOVES:  Imashime no Bohi, Miira Drop, Ouke no Sabaki, Cobra Blow,
                Hitsugi no Mai, Kotodama Gaeshi (Haku)
     - Anakaris has no ground or air throws.  He cannot use Advancing Guard,
     - Anakaris can use the Kotodama Gaeshi (Suu) to absorb most projectiles,
       even the ES versions.  However, he cannot absorb beam attacks or EX
     - After absorbing a projectile, he can use the Kotodama Gaeshi (Haku)
       to use it himself!  He can even ES the move (if applicable), and if
       the projectile can be used in air, Anakaris can use it in air, too.
       Here's a list of what moves can be stolen.  Note that Anakaris does
       not mimic all moves exactly (try an ES Ankihou to see what I mean).
       If Anakaris steals either Missile move from Bulleta, he can use the
       Smile & Missile on the ground, and Happy & Missile in the air:
       PERSON         ABSORBED              IN RETURN
       Aulbath        Sonic Wave            Sonic Wave
       Bulleta        Smile & Missile       Smile & Missile, Happy & Missile
                      Happy & Missile       Smile & Missile, Happy & Missile
       Demitri        Chaos Fire            Chaos Flare (can use in air)
       Donovan        Blizzard Sword        Blizzard Sword
       Jedah          Dio=Sega              Dio=Sega (can use in air)
       Lei-Lei        Ankihou               Ankihou 
       Lilith         Soul Flash            Soul Flash (can use in air)
       Morrigan       Soul Fist             Soul Fist (can use in air)
       Phobos         Might Launcher        Might Launcher (can use in air)
       Pyron          Sol Smasher           Sol Smasher (can use in air)
     - Anakaris has a special taunt (the royal procession).  Hold all three
       Punch buttons, then press Friendship, and a procession of Khybits
       will walk out carrying a sword and two wrapped Khybits while a music
       cue is played.  During that time, if your opponent is Anakaris, he
       can taunt by pressing the Friendship button, and a spinning Khybit
       will fly out, holding it's hand over it's ears.  While you can't do
       two royal processions at once, if your opponent tries to (hold PPP,
       press R), he'll start dancing instead.
     - After Anakaris has finished the procession (or in the case of two
       Anakarises, after the procession or the dancing), there is a
       random (?) chance that pressing R will make Anakaris throw a Khybit
       mummy onto the ground from his coffin, instead of saying "Baka!"
       and having the little guy run away.  This doesn't seem to happen
       unless Anakaris has danced / done the royal procession previously,
       I don't know if there's a way to control it or not, but it seems
       to only happen once after the procession or dancing.
     - The Togame no Ana has no effect--unless your opponent tries to use
       a pursuit attack or if they jump into the beam!
     - If you perform the Pharaoh Magic and hold down the Friendship
       button / press it before the final attack (default is R), then
       Anakaris will drop an inverted coffin on his opponent.  Doing the
       same thing with Pharaoh Salvation makes Khybit appear on top of
       the coffin's head while spinning and ducking.  Doing the same thing
       during the Pharaoh Temptation makes him simply appear and sit there
       (in both cases, you get an extra sound cue).
     - The Pharaoh Salvation requires 2 special stocks to use, and the
       Pharaoh Decoration requires 3 stocks.
     - During the Pharaoh Split, pressing Punch makes you attack, and
       pressing Kick makes Khybit attack.

     ES MOVES:  Sonic Wave, Poison Breath, Trick Fish, Crystal Lancer,
                Gem's Anger.
     - Both the Sonic Wave and Poison Breath will stun Aulbath's opponent.
       The Sonic Wave will lift an airborne opponent higher into the air
       if they are hit.
     - The timing on the Land Fisher x2 is tricky.  You need to press
       in the opposite direction just as your opponent hits the ground.
     - You can delay the release of the PP Aqua Spread by holding down the
       buttons used.  The KK version cannot be delayed but will home in
       on an enemies' location.
     - The Water Jail cannot kill an enemy--it will only reduce them to
       1 point of life left.  Furthermore, it will break if Aulbath is
     - The Direct Scissors costs 3 special stocks.  In addition, you must
       have selected Aulbath using LP or MP.
     - During the Ocean Rage, you will take damage but not go into hit
       stun.  Furthermore, you can move in any direction while riding the
       horseshoe crab.  If you like, you can get off the crab by pressing
       KKK, but in this form you are vulnerable (i.e. no Dark Force bonus).

     Mitamanuki                     Any dir. but d / u + MP / HP in air

     Togakubi Sarashi               Tap d,d + PP when opponent is downed
     Kyouka Yoroi: Kogane Katabira  Press same strength P + K
     ES MOVES:  Karame Dama, Tsuji Hayate, Kien Zan, Iai Giri, Kirisute
     - Most people assume that the only thing you can do after a Tama Yose
       is to follow with a Kien Zan.  However, you can hit your returning
       opponent with a normal attack, or even let them fall and use a
       pursuit attack or the Togakubi Sarashi.
     - The Kien Zan can only be used in certain situations: as you land
       from a jump, as a reversal attack when you're getting up, after the
       Tama Yose, or as a Guard Cancel.
     - During the Ougon Katabira, Bishamon will still take damage but will
       not go into hit stun.

     - The EX Charge move will slowly fill your Special Stock meter.  You
       can do it for as long as you like.
     - If you do the Head Ride, your opponent will do a particular win
       pose.  This move ends if you or they move, although in most cases
       it can cancel your enemy's Friendship pose.  Note that if your foe
       is in the corner, you can simply start belting out an air combo and
       hit your opponent ;)  You can also do any of the "wall" moves if
       you're near a wall from this move.  Like the (fake throw), this move
       also counts as a "First Attack", even though it does no damage.
     - You can control the ranges of the Please Help Me attack by using
       different sets of kicks:  LK + MK for a straight forward attack,
       MK + HK for a jumping attack, or LK + HK for a diving attack.
     - During the Cat Helper, Kitty will follow Felicia and attack after
       she attacks.

       any normal attack, special move, or EX (including a mid-air Piled
       Hell or a Planet Burning).  The six positions you can teleport to
       are determined by the button you use (HK is the lower-left button
       on the control pad, and will take you to the lower-left corner of
       the screen, for example).
     - When you use the Cosmo Disruption, holding the buttons used makes
       the move take up more of the screen.  Furthermore, what buttons you
       use changes the configuration of the Cosmo Distruption into various
       constellations.  There are six total, using the following buttons:

     - The Dengeki Touki can be used while Victor is crouching as well as
     - There are two versions of the Hyoui Genshou.  If performed with
       LP + LK or MP + MK, Victor's normal standing punches are throw
       attempts that result in him performing a Great Geldenheim throw.
       If performed with HP + HK, all his attacks become electrified.

     When you play with Shadow, you'll turn into your opponent after you win
     each battle.  For example, if I'm using Donovan and I beat Anakaris,
     then in my next battle (say, against Felicia), I will be Anakaris.  If
     I beat Felicia, I will then turn into her for the next battle.

     - To get this new menu to appear, you must beat the game at least once,
       on any difficulty, without losing a round.  When you've done that,
       highlight OPTION on the title screen, hold the L or R shoulder
       buttons, and press Start (thanks for the correction, Axledental DJ)!
       Note that changing the Language option to English will give you
       English text for the entire game, however, some backgrounds are
       censored (like the torture chamber level), all blood is white, and
       the text is altered slightly (see Anakaris' ending for an example).
     - Go to the character you want to use and press the L shoulder button
       three times.  Then highlight the ? box and press any P or K.
    PLAY AS SHADOW  (only in Arcade Mode)
     - Highlight the ? box and press the L shoulder button five times.  On
       the last press, hold it down, then press any P or K.  This trick can
       be combined with the 'Fake Random Select' code to pick your starting
       character while still playing with Shadow.
     - Highlight Phobos, hold the L shoulder button, and then press any P
       or K.
     - Highlight Gallon, hold the L shoulder button, and then press PP or
     - Fight and win against Oboro Bishamon (see below).  Then highlight
       Bishamon, hold the L shoulder button, and then press any P or K.
     - To fight Oboro Bishamon, follow these guidelines:
        * Don't use Auto mode.
        * Don't lose any rounds.
        * Finish at least 2 opponents with the listed EX move:
           Anakaris  = Pharaoh Salvation (or) Pharaoh Decoration
           Aulbath   = Aqua Spread
           Bishamon  = Togakubi Sarashi
           Bulleta   = Beautiful Memory
           Demitri   = Midnight Pleasure
           Donovan   = Change Immortal
           Felicia   = Please Help Me
           Gallon    = Moment Slice
           Jedah     = Prova=Di=Servo
           Lei-Lei   = Chuukadan
           Lilith    = Gloomy Puppet Show
           Morrigan  = Darkness Illusion
           Phobos    = Final Guardian Beta
           Pyron     = Cosmo Disruption
           Q-Bee     = Plus B
           Sasquatch = Big Sledge
           Victor    = Geldenheim 3
           Zabel     = Hell Dunk
    If you fulfilled all the requirements, you'll fight Oboro Bishamon after
    you beat Jedah.  If you lose, you'll see the normal ending.  If you win,
    then you'll see a special scene after the credits.
     - Finish any three opponents with an EX move or with any attack while
       using a Dark Force before the fifth battle.  Your mid-boss will show
       up prior to the next battle, chat with you, then fight you in a
       recolored stage of whatever battle is coming up next.
     - After you win a battle, hold down any Punch or Kick button to
       select your character's win pose.  Some characters have less than
       six poses and so pressing some buttons may not have any effect.
     - You can get a 7th color by selecting your character with PP and an
       8th color by selecting them with KK.
     - In VS mode, when you can chose your stage, press the R shoulder
       button to start a roulette-like sequence.  Then press R again to
       stop the roulette, or press any button to make the roulette slow
       down and automatically select a stage.
     - You can select the recolored version of any stage in VS mode by
       holding the L shoulder button and then pressing any button to
       select the highlighted stage.
     - Perform this move on Phobos but use d,f,df + LP + HP instead of
       d,f,df + PP.
     - After winning a battle with Anakaris, press and hold LK before he
       does a winning pose.  Khybit and Anakaris will start tossing
       coins out, and you're in control of the little guy who lives in
       Anakaris' coffin.  You can move left or right to collect coins of
       varying sizes.
     - Demitri vs. Anakaris         - Finish with Midnight Bliss.
     - Anakaris vs. Anybody         - Finish with any 'Pharaoh' EX move.
                                      ...hold down R for an added effect :)
     - Gallon vs. Anybody           - Finish with Moment Slice.
     - Bishamon vs. Anybody         - Finish with Togakubi Sarashi
                                      ...or ES Hi En Zan.
     - Jedah vs. Anybody            - Finish with Prova=Di=Selvo
     - Lilith vs. CPU Morrigan      - Win the match.
     - Zabel vs. Lei-Lei
     - Zabel vs. Bulleta
     - Bishamon vs. Oboro Bishamon
     - Gallon vs. Bulleta
     - Anakaris vs. Felicia

       4) Choose your codes and go!
       5.   A D V A N C E D   T A C T I C S
    All character can dash backwards or forwards, by tapping f,f or b,b.
    Some of these have special properties: for example, Lei-Lei's forward
    Dash is a teleport-type move, while Aulbath's backward dash can be used
    to hop back repeatedly for a while.  Most characters can interrupt their
    Dash by pressing in the opposite direction in order to stop quickly.  In
    addition, some characters' attacks may change if they are performed
    while dashing forward.
    You can guard against standing attacks by pressing Back, and crouching
    attacks by pressing Down-Back.  Guarding an attack reduces the damage
    significantly (you take no damage from normal attacks and reduced
    damage from special moves, ES, and EX attacks).  You can guard attacks
    while jumping as well; there is only one type of air guard but it is
    effective against any attack.  Note that you cannot guard against throws
    or air throws of any kind.  Some moves may also be unblockable and will
    hit you regardless of what sort of guard you're using.
    While guarding, you can rapidly tap any Punch or Kick button to attempt
    to use Advancing Guard.  It makes you 'miss' a hit, resulting in less
    damage.  This has the added function of pushing you away from your
    opponent and is referred to in the game as a Tech. Hit.
    Every character has a Guard Cancel move (Ankaris has an EX Guard Cancel).
    To use it, guard against an attack while on the ground and then press
    f,d,df + P / K (depending on what character you're using), or f,d,df +
    PP for Anakaris.  You'll break out of guard stun and attack your foe.
    Every character (excluding Anakaris) has two ground throws and an air
    throw.  These are all performed in the same manner:  Get close to your
    enemy and press b / f + MP / HP or MK / HK.  There is only one type of
    air throw, so you can use either set of buttons (Punch or Kick), to
    perform it.  Some characters don't have Kick throws, and they can't
    air throw with Kick, either.  All throws are unblockable.  Some
    characters have grabbing throws in which they attack the opponent
    repeatedly--these cause damage over a period of time rather than all at
    There is a way to take less damage from being thrown, but it only works
    with normal ground throws and not air throws or command throws (like
    Bishamon's Kirisute Gomen or Sasquatch's Big Swing).  To do this, press
    b / f + MP / HP / MK / HK as you are thrown.  If successful, you'll
    land on your feet and take reduced damage.  This is also shown on-screen
    as a Tech. Hit.
    This can be used to take less damage from a grabbing ground throw or
    certain special attacks, and to stop taking damage much faster.  To
    try and recover, rapidly tap b,f and press any Punch or Kick button
    repeatedly until you break free.
    These can only be used after knocking down your opponent, which can be
    done by hitting him or her with a crouching HK attack (some characters
    have other attacks or moves that will knock down an opponent).  Once
    they are down, quickly press u + P / K to perform a pursuit attack,
    which is basically a way of getting free damage.  You can even ES your
    pursuit attack by performing it with PP or KK.  Bishamon and Felicia
    have two pursuit attacks--the regular kind that everyone else has and
    then the Togakubi Sarashi (for Bishamon) and Cat Pack (for Felicia).
    Anakaris, however, has a special move that will injure people who
    attempt any sort of pursuit attack.
    When you're knocked down by your opponent, you're not entirely helpless.
    If you do nothing, you'll stand up after a moment, but you'll also be
    left open to pursuit attacks.  In order to avoid this, quickly press
    b / f + P / K to move back or forward while you get up.
    Instead of having two projectiles cancel out, Capcom uses the momentum
    system to determine the priority of the projectiles.  This system remains
    unchanged from Vampire Hunter / NightWarriors.  It applies only
    horizontal projectiles thrown at one another on the air or in the ground,
    and applies to ES as well as EX projectiles.
     - When two projectiles are thrown towards each other, the strength of
       the button used overrides the other projectile.  For example, if
       two Demitris throw two Chaos Flares, but one is performed with LP and
       the other one with MP, then the MP one will override the LP Flare.
     - If two projectiles of equal strength are thrown, the one fired later
       will override the one thrown earlier.
     - If two projectiles of equal strength are thrown at the same time,
       they will both cancel out.
     - ES projectiles override normal projectiles.  EX projectiles override
       any other type of projectile.
    All other types of long-range attacks simply go by the rule of who fires
    first (for example, if there are two Phobos, the one who fires his
    Plasma Beam first hits.  If the both fire at the same time, they are
    both hit).
    This is performed by pressing the R shoulder button.  Friendships are
    little actions or gestures that are meant to amuse but have no serious
    impact on gameplay (although some can inflict minor damage).  Each
    character can use a Friendship fifteen times per battle.  Some characters
    have more than one Friendship, in which case a particular action is
    chosen at random.  Felicia has a Friendship attack (the Fake Throw),
    while Sasquatch has a Friendship EX (the Big Trap).
    Referred to as the 'Hunter Chain', this type of chain combo is the first
    of it's kind and so is simply called 'Chain Combo' in the game itself.
    In a chain combo, you can interrupt one normal attack into another
    normal attack.  You can make any type of chain combo you want, but you
    have to follow these guidelines:
      - You must go from weakest to strongest (for example, LP -> MP is
        acceptable but HK -> MK is not).
      - You can go from Punch to Kick but not the reverse (in this
        case, LP -> LK will work but MK -> MP will not).
      - You can chain combo while jumping, standing or crouching, and you
        can preceed a chain with another chain (for instance, you could
        jump in with LK -> MP, then continue to combo with LP -> MP -> HK
        once you land, or continue the same chain with MK -> HK).
        However, note that the only type of dual chaining possible is a
        jumping chain into a ground chain.  You can't stand, chain together
        some attacks, then crouch and start a new chain--whether you stand
        or crouch, a ground chain is still subject to the same guidelines.
      - You cannot interrupt a chain combo into any special move, ES, or
        EX move  (so while crouching MP, Shadow Blade is possible,
        crouching LP -> MP, Shadow Blade is not).
        Some characters can get around this by ending a chain combo with
        a link attack (when you don't interrupt a normal attack into
        another one, but actually let the first one finish and are still
        able to connect with a second attack, it's called a link).  For
        instance, Lilith has a crouching LP, crouching MK link, so she
        can combo standing LP -> crouching LP (link) MK, Shiny Blade.
    So, in theory, assuming that all of your normal attacks hit once, you
    could perform a six-hit combo:
                    LP -> LK -> MP -> MK -> HP -> HK
    However, some character have moves that hit twice, or push them away,
    etc., making this theoretical only.  Most characters can link together
    five attacks at most.  Furthermore, it's impossible to get in more than
    five attacks during a jumping chain combo--just like with ground
    chains, it's theoretically possible to get six but this actually can't
    be done (I tested this using Bulleta vs. Anakaris).
    ES stands for 'Especial'.  An ES attack requires one special stock.  To
    perform it, just enter the command for a special move, but use two of
    the same button instead of one  (i.e. f,d,df + PP instead of f,d,df + P).
    Not all special moves can be ES'd, though.  An ES move generally hits
    more times, does better damage, and has an increased range and priority
    over the normal move.
    EX stands for 'Extra Special'.  Most EX attacks require one special
    stock, but some need two (like Demitri's Midnight Pleasure), and some
    need three (Anakaris' Pharaoh Decoration).  When you perform an EX
    attack, you will flash rainbow colors and be momentarily invincible.
    EX moves are generally more powerful than ES moves in all aspects.
    Some EX attacks require you to use button presses instead of simple
    motions.  To perform these, simply press the buttons quickly at an
    even pace--don't wait for your character to finish one attack and go
    to the next.  When you finish, your character will automatically
    cancel into the attack.
    Every character has the ability to use a Dark Force.  To use your
    character's DS, press the same P + same K  (i.e. MP + MK).  Doing so
    causes your character to pose, and the background changes.  You now have
    whatever special power your Dark Force gives you.  Once activated, a
    Dark Force only lasts for a little while (a bar will appear beneath your
    life bar informing you of how much time is left).  This amount of time
    will decrease faster when you are in hit stun.  You can end a Dark Force
    prematurely by pressing any P + K a second time.  Either way, when a
    Dark Force ends, the background reverts and you'll pose a second time.
    Remember that you are vulnerable while posing.  Some characters have more
    than one version of a Dark Force--check out Section 2 (The Characters)
    for more detail.

    Meticulously copied from the instruction booklet...those of you who own
    this game know what I mean!  Anyway, here it is:
     Darkrealm has lost its monarch and been in chaos.
     Now, one soul was ressurrected from the bottom of oblivion.
     It's Jedah, one of the ancient Three Lords of Darkrealm.
     He creates closed battlestage called "Damned Dimension"
     and summons worthy spirits to declare;
     "All living and dead souls should be merged into me!
     "That is your only hope for ultimate salvation!"
     The gala of Darkstalkers is held once again,
     this time for their own survivals.
     Time is running out...and there is no second chance!
    These are all done by me and so may not be completely correct.  I'd
    like to thank Chris for providing the translations of all the new info.

    BTW, a final note for those who are interested.  This game is Vampire
    Savior plus Donovan, Phobos, Pyron, and some of the tricks from Vampire
    Savior 2 (but not all, such as Marionette Mode).  It does _not_ contain
    any of the VS2/VH2 upgrades, such as improved EXs during Dark Force
    attacks, etc.  If you're looking for a version with all the bonuses
    (not to mention lots of bonuses in general), then check out Vampire
    Savior EX for the PlayStation (it's currently an import, but will
    undoubtedly be released in the US eventually).  The translation isn't
    as exact as the Saturn version, though.
    "I am Dark Master!" - hehe :)
