I. Introduction
       a. Author Intro
  Well hello and welcome to my WWE Here Comes the Pain (HCTP)
Character FAQ for Tajiri. I am a huge wrestling fan and have had
this game since it's release and after finishing my first ever FAQ I
choose to create a Character FAQ for HCTP, and why did I choose
Tajiri I hear you say? Because Tajiri is the best damn' wrestler in
the WWE. He may not be the strongest or the fastest wrestler in the
game but I think that he has the best moves and I enjoy using him the
most. Whenever my mates come over to play Playsation we occasionally
play HCTP ( we don't play HCTP alot now as we play WWE Smackdown
vs Raw the more recent one ) and I'm always Tajiri and I always kick
their butts with Tajiri. It especially helps that I have all his stats maxed 
out to ten which gives him a total of 100!! Yeah!!

  Anyway on other terms I hope that this FAQ helps you with some of
Tajiri moves as well as strategies and other information. So I hope
you have fun reading this FAQ and let's move on.

II. Basics 
       a. Charcter Bio.
Name: Tajiri
Nicknames: Yoshihiro Tajiri, Aquarius, The Japanese Buzzsaw
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 205 lbs
Hometown: Tokyo, Japan
Finishing Move: The Japanese Buzzsaw
Career Highlights: ECW Television Champion
	             ECW Tag Team Champion
	             WCW U.S Title
	             Cruiserweight Champion
                           Light-Heavyweight Champion
	             United States Champion	             
	             Tag Team Champions with Eddie Guerrero

  The Japanese Buzzsaw, A veteran of 10 years, played his way into the WWE
as Commissioner Regalís assistant where his duties consisted of making tea
for Regal. When Regal finally let Tajiri wrestle in the ring he was amazed 
by Tajiriís excellent displays of wrestling basics and martial arts expertise. 
Within five months Tajiri had won the Cruiserweight, Light-Heavyweight and
WCW US title. He even had something going on with Torrie Wilson for a while!

       b. Styles and Entrance

   Styles				  Entrance
 Fighting Style: Tajiri		Movie: Tajiri
 Running Style: Normal		Moves: Tajiri
 Walking Style: Normal		Music: Tajiri
 Winning Style: Tajiri

       c. Stats

Tajiri's Original stats	     6         7.5          5.5         6       7.5

Tajiri's Recommended stats   7         7.5           7         6.5      7.5

  The main things that you should first update is his strength and endurance.
Or if you want a really good Martial Art's Submission wrestler you should
also update his submission rating. But for those of you like me who are
willing to put in the hard yards can max. out his stats all to ten for the
ultimate wrestler. Trust me it's worth it.

       d. Strategies

Strategies against big, strong people who Tajiri can't lift.
  Examples - Big Show
	  - Brock Lesnar
	  - Triple H
                - Rikishi etc.        
  As you can't lift these people don't even think about trying any
power moves because you won't even be able to lift them. Use
your kicks alot and aim for a minimum of three or four specials.
When you have one finisher ready peform Tajiris finishing
move the Japanese Buzzsaw then keep wrestling like before
and then when you have another finisher lined up peform another
Japanese Buzzkick and then keep using your kicks and other moves
up until when you have another two finishers ready. Then steal their
finisher ( when in the correct postion hold L2 and then press L1 ) and
then pin them. 
  Also remember that you can expose the turnbuckles to Irish whip 
them into the exposed turnbuckle which does cause more damage.
You can also fight outside the ring. If you do fight outside the ring
remember to Irish whip them into the barracade ( the thing that
seperates the wrestlers from the crowd ) and then use an arrow and
circle whilst there leaning on it to peform a move using the barracade
as a weapon. You won't get disqualified and also remeber to Irish Whip
them into the steel steps. 
  You will also want to taunt to raise your Smackdown meter faster and
if you use these tatics your sure to win. 

Strategies against normal people that Tajiri can lift.
  Examples - Eddie Guerrero
                - The Hurricane 
                - Rey Mysterio
                - Christian
  These people you can lift so you can use your power grapples this time
round. Instead of going for two Japanese Buzzkicks and stealing your 
opponents finsher like you would if you were wrestling someone Tajiri
couldn't lift, this time your aiming for around three Japanese Buzzkicks
and if you want too you could steal their finisher ( It's a nice way to 
embarrass your opponent ). You also still want to use Tajiri's kicks and 
mainly use the same tactics as in the above section, " Strategies against 
big, strong people who Tajiri can't lift. "
  Oh, there is one more thing though. Because you can lift your opponent
be sure to powerbomb them through the announcers table at ringside. You
also don't get disqualified for doing this which is always a good thing. 

These are some of Tajiri's good moves that I use alot in a match.
