    ------------------------------ [ SAMURAI SHOWDOWN SEN ] -----------------------
    ---------------------------------[by Ice Queen Zero]---------------------------
    ----------------------------------- [ XBOX 360 ]-------------------------------
    Note: This movelist is a little cluttered which I am aware of. I do have plans
    on reformatting it similar to that of my King of Fighters 12 guide in the near
    future. That way, that 79 character per line limit won't be a pain in the ass.
    After so many delays, Samurai Showdown Sen has finally been released for the
    Xbox 360. I confess that I'm a PS3/Wii person but with Samurai Showdown Sen as
    a Xbox 360 exclusive title currently, I'll hop on the other side of the fence
    since I love making FAQ/Movelists and I prefer to keep the original Japanese
    names since English names seem to be inaccurate.
    For an easy $50 that GameFAQs is offering for the FAQing of this game, you know
    damn well I could not pass the chance up on cashing in on this opportunity. I
    eventually would have made an FAQ/Movelist for Samurai Showdown Sen but now I
    got 50 reasons to work on it sooner. Ti ji ji ^v^ (Actually, this FAQ is really
    a guide I worked on and scrapped in 2008 but I fortunately had my old file on
    my SD card so I was able to convert it to Xbox360 standards). 
    Samurai Showdown Sen and its characters are trademarks of SNK n' all copyrights

    Completed Haohmaru and Black Hawk's movelist. Worked on Genjuro's moveset.
    Finished Genjuro and Ukyo movelist.
    Finished Nakoruru and Galford movelist.
    Finished Hazno and Kyoshiro movelist.
    There are two types of movelist inputs: just inputs and fastest inputs. Just
    inputs are when you do the motion and press the button afterwards. Fastest
    input is when you press the button around the same time you finish the motion.
    Some moves become more powerful when fastest inputs are used and sometimes they
    have different names so if you see two moves with the same motion then one is a
    just input motion and the other is a fastest input motion (1) and (2). Some 
    motions are slightly different inputs (3)
    A traveling swordsman with an allegiance to no one and nothing except his own
    honor, Haohmaru wanders about Japan perfecting his fighting technique. Some
    years ago he saved Takechiyo's village from bandits and taught the youth the
    ways of the sword. Takechiyo has grown much since that time and battle between
    the two seems inevitable but Takechiyo delays their fight to continue searching
    for a wayward princess from Amori.

    dispatched of them easily, but one survived by chance and told him that the
    attack was a test and the his skills were much sought after by the mysterious
    and sinister Golba. For Genjuro there was no question of following another. He
    smiled ominously at the events that had begun to set in motion.

         Hanzo Hattori
    Hanzo is a subordinate of the Tokugawa shogunatae and the leader of the Iga
    clan of ninja. He is the greatest warrior of his people and excels in the art
    of assassination and misdirectrion. During a time of relative calm in Japan,
    Hanzo received word from the Tokugawa shogunate that a foreign ship was illega-
    lly moored off the coast of Japan and threatened the sanctity of that peace.
    Ordered to investigate and also keep the matter quiet, Hanzo followed many
    leads until he discovered the intent of the foreign vessel. It seemed they were
    in pursuit of a princess of Amori and would employ any means to retrieve her.
    Unable to reach the princess before she mysteriously disappeared, Hanzo set off
    to find her from the foreign threat.

    France was in political disarray and consumed by the rebellion. Warring parties
    struggled against each other until the royalist faction finally gained the
    upper hand against the civil army with the aid of a mysterious group. As a
    fighter in the civil army, Charlotte undertook a mission to uncover the nature
    of the secretive group and the information she discovered was startling. Her
    sources pointed to a small island in the East as the location of the group, so
    the blond swordswoman took up arms and departed for Japan...

    the ship which rammed his own boat and revealed it bore a certain crest. Suzu

    Going by the simple moniker of "J," this Lesphian sailor miraculously survived
    the sinking of his ship when it was near the island of Japan and made his way
    ashore when he slowly learned to live among the inhabitants. Despite his poor
    skills when he first arrived, J managed to perserve at fighting due to his
    incredible physical prowess. He wandered for many years improving on his sword
    technique and eventually fell in love with a geisha. In order to secure her
    freedom, however, he was instructed to procure an enormous sum of gold. The
    destitute wanderer had no choice but to accept a job to bring back a missing
    princess from Amori in order to release his beloved. With his trusty sword
    "Elvis," J set out in pursuit of Suzu.

    My sisters Renea and Chigura Castillo aka Roja Calor and Kage Negra for helping
    me make the guide.
    I got tons of guides under my belt. I tend to write a lot of them for the old
    school games that are even older than my parents since retrophoria runs in the
    family. But with the success of my latest new-school guide Final Fantasy 13
    (1 million hits and counting) with the help of my co-writer, Split Infinity, I
    figure from here on out I will cue you guys in on some up and coming new-school
    games I plan to FAQ for in no particular order.
    Metroid: Other M
    Mario Galaxy 2
    King of Fighters 13
    Sonic 4: Episode 1
    Super Street Fighter 4
    Final Fantasy Versus 13
    Blazblue Continuum Shift
    Toki (Wiiware)
    Salamander Rebirth
    Jackal Rebirth
    Bonk Brink of Extinction
    God of War 3
    New Super Mario Bros Wii
    Megaman 10
    I will always be posting up old school games but I won't name any since I post
    them at random and if a new-school game not on the list catches my eye or if
    there's a bounty for it, then I'll probably FAQ it too though that too is also
    random just like this SS Sen FAQ was a random thing. Ti ji ji ^v^
