    -  Well I'll put it simply....I've been working on getting a Virtua Fighter 5
       walkthrough up as a means of my "coming out of retirement" kinda deal.  Well
       I'm still hard at work with it, but I figured as much that I should at least
       put out there some character walkthroughs as well.  I was planning on doing
       this in the first place once I got the full walkthrough up, but I figured
       what the hell....lets do it now.  So with that being said I'm here to give
       you all this guide on El Blaze.
    -  As with every other guide that I've wrote, this guide is my own property!  I
       happily made this for all to enjoy and to use, and all that I ask is that if
       you are planning on using this for your site, then just ask me for permission
       ok.  I'm really easy to get along with and generally don't mind it so long as
       you ask for my permission first.  Don't go thinking "Oh he'll never say ok,
       lets just rip the guide and post it anyways" because that's a flawed way of
       thinking.  Just give it a shot sometime and you may be surprised!  My e-mail
       box is always open!
    -  A big reminder to everyone out there....if you're looking for updates to this
       guide, then head on over to www.gamefaqs.com.  I write for that site and that
       site only.....or at least, that's where the guide's origins are.  Any update
       that I do will hit there.  I don't really plan on keeping up with how many
       other hundreds of sites have my guides up for their use and have to go and
       update it on their site as well, so save yourself some trouble and headache
       and check my guide out at GameFAQs ok.  I really don't want to deal with a
       million e-mails asking me about updates and info and such when I'm telling
       you now what to do.

    -  Personal Opinion -
    -  Ok....here's basically my take on El Blaze:
       What can I say about El Blaze?  He's a total badass for starters!  It's about
       damn time that we hispanics got a decent video game fighting character for
       once.  And before anyone says that there was Christy from Tekken, let me just
       point out that she was nothing more than a character model swap for Eddy....
       I mean they have the same exact move sets for christs sake!  The only thing
       that separated the two was that they made Christy into a stereotypical latina
       by making her big breasted and with a big ass...not to say that that's wrong
       mind you, but I'm just saying.  But now....now we get a truely decent latin
       fighter in El Blaze with a great fighting style that did originate in Mexico.
       I really do hope that the guys at Tekken take note of the lucha fighting
       style and make a luchador of their own....THAT'S HISPANIC, NOT JAPANESE!!!
       With that said, El Blaze is easily a great character to start off with if
       you're new to the series.  His move set is simple enough to pick up on in no
       time, yet still offering quite alot in terms of advanced fighting.  El Blaze
       can seem like a beginners character at first, but once you get to the core of
       his fighting style, then you find a very tricky character to use.  Now El
       Blaze is not a powerhouse by no means, and he's certainly not a defensive
       character either.  What El Blaze shines in is his speed, move diversity, and
       what I like to call "Blitz Tactics".  What that means is that if you can
       switch up enough with him quickly enough, then you find yourself with a total
       offensive character.  El Blaze is not a turtle users dream by no means.  You
       don't want to actually stay on offense too long.  Hell even most if not all
       of El Blaze's reversal techniques immedieately require you to start launching
       an offensive and keep it going.  El Blaze from what I've seen has an answer
       for everything in terms of fighting.  For those that love to push offensive
       pressure onto you you can push it back onto them easily enough, throwing
       their game off.  For those that love to turtle and stay in crouching blocked
       or just avoidance of you, El Blaze can immedieately run after an opponent at
       the drop of a hat, and with an extensive throwing set, he can catch turtlers
       in any position.  As stated before, if you are a beginner to the Virtua
       Fighter series, then El Blaze is a great character for you to at least learn
       some of the basic ropes without worrying too much about things.  If you feel
       that your loyalty lies with another character after using El Blaze at first,
       then move on.  For those that love the style that El Blaze brings to the
       table though, veterans and pros will come to love the diversity and
       simplicity that El Blaze can offer in terms of advanced fighting.  I just
       hope that in terms of canon in the Virtua Fighter storyline, that El Blaze
       does defeat Wolf and places high if not wins the 5th World Tournament.

       character.  In that respect I give to all of you this section.  E-mail in

       * El Blaze *
       - From: Alex "Sanctuary Remix" Hall
         Tip Description: Using El Blaze in Quest Mode or against human players
         When you use El Blaze in Quest Mode, you have to remember that he is an
         offensive blitz machine.  I've found that in the later difficulties of the
         high Dans and the Ultimate Ranks by using his Burnout Combo into Rocket
         Discharge into Deja Vu is an extremely effective tactic.  What I mean by
         this is this.  At the higher levels, the computer will block you crazily.
         They love to counter and hit you fast should you try to grab them. So, with
         that said, if you use the Burnout Combo, you hit them fast and either they
         take the punches, or block them.  This you shouldn't care about though
         hitting with the punches is an added bonus should they land.  What you want
         is for them to block the kick at the end of the combo.  This allows El
         Blaze to go into his Rocket Discharge.  Since he's running full force at
         the opponent at point blank range, immedieately go for a grab since they
         should still be blocking while in Rocket Discharge.  You should then hit
         them with the Deja Vu.  This one move takes off quite a bit of health and
         when used constantly over and over against the computer, you should be
         racking up the wins with little to no hassle so long as you keep the
         pressure going against them.  Remember this move set as your main weapon!
         This also comes in handy for Quick Draw Tournaments as well, eating up alot
         of health from the opponent and taking away alot of time as well, almost
         ensuring your victory should you run away the rest of the time.
    -  First and foremost I give credit to Sega for coming out with one kick ass
       fighter.  I've never been so jaw dropped before by a fighting game with all
       that it shows off.  I'm still going strong with it, so I think I'm now
       turning into a Virtua Fighter fan!  Way to go Sega, by making an addictive
       game like this!
    -  Secondly I'd like to give creds to all of those out there that asked for me
       to come back and make more walkthroughs.  You have no clue how much I missed
       doing these, and just because I'm in the Marines, doesn't mean I have to 
       retire from walkthrough writing!  Thank you for all the support and e-mails
       that all of you have sent telling me how good my past walkthroughs were and
       that you all wanted to see more.  Without the support, I think the drive and
       the love for walkthrough writing would of left me a long time ago.
    -  If there's anything that you wish to add or correct in my walkthrough, then
       by all means, shoot me an e-mail at sanctuary_remix@yahoo.com.  I'll take
       your comments and concerns seriously and get back to you as fast as I can.
       You will be given the proper credit as well for contributing to my guide.
       Thanks again, and I'll sees yas all later!
