I plan on making this thing very through, with everything that you should need to know to becoming an Android #16 expert. Inside this FAQ I will list the basics to playing Android #16, Android #16's moves, how to beat the World Tournament with him, and even a Capsule Encyclopedia listing all of #16's capsules. The basics will explain #16's playing style and capsule setups for him. Android #16's moves will explain string combos to do his specials. #16's Capsule Encyclopedia will list all of his capsules in comprehensive order. The World Tournament section will explain tactics to complete all three levels of the World Tournament with #16. ---------------- Legal Disclaimer| ---------------- This FAQ may not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.

This makes him very hard to play as for beginners. Hell Flash is relatively easy to do and is his finisher. I always use 2 Hell Flashes in capsule setups for #16, and I do one Hell Flash at the beginning of every match. This will give you the upper hand as it takes away at least one life bar. Rocket Punch is also a valuable asset, I don't use it as much as Hell Flash, but for a variety #16 capsule setup, include it. Then #16 has all the common physical moves. Though not nearly as important as Hell Flash, you might want to use them anyway. ==================== #16's Capsule Setups| ==================== Hell Flash Set --------------- Hell Flash Hell Flash Killing Neck Throw Rage! Gero's Perpetual Energy R&D Hell Flash right at the beginning of the match, and if you wish to be considered cheap, at most, 2 more Hell Flashes and the match is in the bag.

Hell Flash right at the beginning, then go for a ring out, or if that seems undoable, then tough it out, and hope for a knockout. Android #16 has a tough time with KOs in the tournament for some reason. --- FAQ| --- Currently there have been no questions asked. To ask a question, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
