You may download and print this FAQ, but under no circumstances can you
put this FAQ on your web page without our permission.  You MAY NOT ALTER
IT IN ANY WAY or claim it as your own.

From this point on, I will only be sending FAQ updates to GameFAQs, IGN,
and Tekken Zaibatsu.  Anyone who has recevived permission to host any of
the Tekkenomics FAQs also has permission to host any of our future
text-based FAQs (unless specified), and can obtain updates from any of
the previously mentioned websites.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         3. FAQ Description
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The idea behind this FAQ is to put together a list of moves that are
not listed within the in-game command lists.

After working on Hidden Moves FAQs for Tekken 4 and Tekken Tag Tournament,
I decided to create a Hidden Moves FAQ for Soul Calibur 2.  This FAQ
will not be as complete as my Tekken FAQs, because I have been playing
Tekken for a longer period of time.

This FAQ only covers the moves that are hidden within the PS2 Soul
Calibur 2 (U.S. Version).  These moves should work on the Arcade
(except Heihachi) and other PS2 Versions, but I only tested these moves
on the PS2 U.S. Version.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                             4. Legend
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This is a list of the notations that I will be using throughout this FAQ.
I have a background in Tekken and attempted to create a Legend that reflects
that, so it might be different than what you're used to if you're not a
Tekken player.

                            9. Taunts
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


After playing the demo version of Soul Calibur 2, I noticed that you
could make your player say one of four possible taunts before you get to
the actual fight (during the pre-match loading screen).  After I
purchased the game, I decided to put together a list of all of these
taunts for each selectable fighter.

This is performed by pressing any one of the face buttons on the controller
(A, B, K, or G) (see "Legend" for explanation).

Also, listed to the right of each taunt will be it's equivalent lines from
the Character Profiles.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The main purpose of "Tekkenomics" is to provide you with Tekken FAQs/Guides
and to keep you updated on Tekken news and information.

"Tekkenomics" was originally the name of the website created by me
(Wild Man X), with help from Paulinstein and Drake the Demon, which first
came online on November 6, 2004.  However, due to someone engaging in
piracy on our hosting server the website went down in April 2007.  With
the release of Tekken 6 approaching for consoles, I decided to bring back
Tekkenomics, but in the form of a blog back in June 2009.

"Tekkenomics" contains various Tekken related material, some of which is
difficult to find on any other Tekken based website.  The blog will
contain exclusive articles, original FAQ files, move lists, combos/juggles,
combo videos, in-game matches, Tekken commercials, PC desktop wallpaper,
PSP wallpaper, CG art, fan-based material, and other things.

If you're having problems visiting the "Tekkenomics Blog" at
http://www.tekkenomics.com, then you can also visit it at the following
link: http://tekkenomics.wordpress.com

If you were wondering how we came up with the name "Tekkenomics", back in
my high school days in the year 2000, Paulinstein, me, and some other high
school friends would get together to play Tekken 3 on the PlayStation 1.
At the time, we were also enrolled in Economics. Whenever we would get
together to play, we would say that we were going to study some
"Tekkenomics".  So, basically: "Tekken" + "Economics" = "Tekkenomics".

There are a few references on the web to the name "Tekkenomics" that
aren't related to us or our blog.  There are some members on the Tekken
Zaibatsu forums that go by the names "Tekkenomics", "Tekkenomics_101",
and "TekkenNomics Jr." that aren't related to us. On Tekken Zaibatsu,
we go by the names "Wild Man X", "Paulinstein", and "Drake the Demon".
The things on the web that ARE related to us are at: GameFAQs, Neoseeker,
IGN, 1UP.com, Gamerhelp, Gamespot, MySpace, AIM, MSN Messenger, Hotmail,
GMail, YouTube, PicasaWeb, Blogger, WordPress, ImageShack, and Twitter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I have been a fan of the Tekken series since 2000.  A few of my friends
got me into the series with Tekken 3.

My first FAQ was "Hidden Moves" for Tekken 4.  Writing this FAQ, I've
learned some new things about Tekken along the way that I probably
wouldn't have learned otherwise.  My FAQs are a way for me to share
what I have learned.

Lei Wulong is my main fighter, and has been since Tekken 3.  When I bought
Tekken Tag Tournament for the PS2, I decided to learn how to play with all
of the fighters, and this has carried over to Tekken 4, Tekken 5, and
Tekken: Dark Resurrection.  So, you can rest assured that I do atleast
know a little bit about what I'm talking about :)

I am currently residing in Southern California (in the United States),
but have not been to any of the arcades in the area in a long time.  I
used to play at the University of California, Riverside.

I hope that you've enjoyed my FAQs!
