So, I was a little lad searching through some old files on my computer 
one day and I stumbled across one of my uncompleted works from back in 
the day. Its name was Marvel Versus Capcom 2. So, here I am now, 
writing it once again almost two years later to completion.

Marvel Versus Capcom 2 is without a doubt, in my mind, one of the best 
fighting games ever created. Although it may get too frantic for most 
players, people with a sharp eye and quick reflexes will not only find 
the craziness a refreshing mix of style, but lots of fun. 

The story in Marvel Versus Capcom 2 is quite simple, an evil named 
Abyss has awoken to destroy the world, and all the heroes in the world 
are uniting to try and stop him.

One brave warrior named Ruby Heart is using her pirate ship to send all 
the heroes of the world to Abyss's palace to try and stop him. While 
there she attempts to obtain Abyss's armor and destroy it, along with 
its host for good.

However, I doubt you're playing the game for the intense storyline, 
rather for the wonderful matches you'll fight along the way. 

I really hope you find use in this FAQ, and if not please let me know 
by e-mailing me at SPop6@aol.com with questions or comments. Please 
include Marvel, Capcom of MVC2 somewhere in the subject line. Thank you 
for taking the time out to read this FAQ.

Please read through your instruction manual for controls, menu 
translations, combat rules, vitality gauges, character types, how to 
change characters, how to charge your hyper bar, etc. Those who are 
playing the arcade version should look right above the control stick to 
find a little label dedicated to gameplay basics. (Almost all the 
official machines have this.)

Blocking will be an ability you will use a lot while playing Marvel 
Versus Capcom 2. Simply press the back button while in combat to block; 
this will cause damage to be greatly reduced by the attacker. Please 
take note that no throws can be blocked.

There are three types of blocks in Marvel Versus Capcom 2:

Basic Block - B
This block protects against attacks aimed at the torso and higher. 
Countering capabilities become higher while using a basic block, but 
chipping damage increases. Be especially careful when using blocking 
techniques rather than countering techniques against characters like 
Servbot; characters such as these can literally chip you to death.

Crouching Block - BD
This block protects against all attacks however, countering other moves 
will prove to be far more difficult while in the crouching position. 
Certain characters have moves that can break this block, so use this 
with caution.

Aerial Block – (While Airborne) B
This is a standard block used against anti-air moves and against 
airborne enemies. Try finding other methods of countering in the air 
rather than simply blocking though, to much blocking could lead your 
opponent to form awesome pressure tactics against you.

-----------------------------!!IMPORTANT!!-----------------------------

All blocks have something called an advanced block, simply press LP + 
HP while blocking and your opponent will be sent backwards.

Basic Escape Roll - B, BD, D + Any Attack Button
Escape Rolls are essential to being a good Marvel Versus Capcom 2 
player; they are used when a hyper combo or aerial combo is used on 
your fighter and you hit the ground, usually when you hit the ground 
your opponent will try to continue and attack you, but an escape roll 
will prevent them from doing so.

Rolling Get Up - While In Air B, BD, D + Any Attack Button
There are also two air versions of the escape roll; the first version 
is known as the Rolling Get Up. This technique literally allows you to 
escape an attack from your opponent before they even begin to attack. 
This move will prove vital to master.

Break Away - D + Any Attack Button
The final air escape roll is known as a Break Away. This technique is 
used to escape damage from a basic air throw. Be sure to input the 
commands as your character is falling however, or this move will fail.

Partner assists allow you to call your opponent out for a brief moment 
to perform a special move. This move depends on the assist type chosen 
for that particular fighter; each character has thee different assists 
to choose from (A-Alpha, B-Beta and Y-Gamma) and there are twelve 
assist types total in the game. The twelve assist-types are:

+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Assist Type|                   Assist Description                    |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Anti-Air   |Your partner comes out and performs a move that will     |
|           |attack very close and airborne opponents. The move       |
|           |performed is usually used as a counter move that has a   |
|           |lot of speed to it.                                      |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Balance    |Your partner comes out and performs a ground-based       |
|           |attack. If you use a counter assist then your partner    |
|           |will perform an anti-air attack, this assist type is     |
|           |usually on characters that deal mid-ranged damage.       |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Capture    |Your partner comes out and performs a move that will     |
|           |render your opponent paralyzed for a brief amount of     |
|           |time. The counter assist version of this move is usually |
|           |ground based.                                            |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Dash       |Your partner comes out and performs a fast dashing attack|
|           |usually targeted towards grounded opponents. These moves |
|           |are generally fast and easy to combo off of, but are     |
|           |sometimes difficult to connect with.                     |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Enhance    |Your partner comes out and hands an enhancement item to  |
|           |your current fighter. This enhancement will usually up   |
|           |your strength or defense statistic. The counter assist   |
|           |version of this will usually consist of a ground move.   |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Expansion  |Your opponent comes out and performs a move that will    |
|           |either send your opponent flying across the screen, knock|
|           |them off their feet or both! Try not to miss though,     |
|           |these attacks usually leave your partner open for attack.|
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Ground     |Your partner comes out and performs an attack that       |
|           |travels across the ground in a projectile-like fashion.  |
|           |Some of these moves usually knock your opponent off his/ |
|           |her feet and leave combo opportunities open.             |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Heal       |Your partner comes out and hands your current fighter an |
|           |item that will restore some health. The enhancement      | 
|           |restores a small amount of life, but it does go as far   | 
|           |as to restore parts of your non-curable health bar.      |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Launcher   |Your partner comes out and performs a basic launcher     |
|           |attack. (An attack that knocks an enemy into the air,    |
|           |stuns them and opens them up for an aerial rave.) These  |
|           |moves are damaging, but sometimes hard to connect with.  |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Projectile |Your partner comes out and performs a projectile attack. |
|           |These attacks are usually fast, safe to use and make good|
|           |counter attack. The team-hyper combos that come with this|
|           |assist are usually very powerful.                        |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Throw      |Your partner comes our and performs a throw move. These  |
|           |attacks are usually hard to connect with against         | 
|           |experienced players, but deal a hefty amount of damage if|
|           |they do and usually send your opponent across the field. |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Variety    |Your partner will come out and perform a special move.   |
|           |This move could fall under any attack category. The      |
|           |counter assist is also another special move that could   |     
|           |be literally anything. It all depends on the character.  |
+---------------------------------------------------------------------+ 

Please take note, if your current fighter does not take the item from a 
heal or enhancement assister then they could be left open for a 
counter-attack. Make sure your current fighter is far from your 
opponent and that you're as close as possible to the edge of the screen 
so you can easily take the item.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Performing an assist is quite simple, there are numerous types of 
assists and all of them make use of the PA and PB buttons.

Standard Assists - PA or PB
If you press PA then the second character on your team will come out 
and perform his/her assist technique; if you press PB then the third 
character on your team will come out and do his/her respective move.

Counter Assist - B, BD, D + PA or PB
You're partner will come out and perform a counter attack on your 
opponent. These moves are generally very fast, and can be used when 
your opponent is in the midst of performing a combo. Counter assists 
take up one hyper bar.

Delayed Partner Hyper Combo - Varies 
Perform a hyper combo with your current character, and while its 
performing that hyper combo put in the commands for your second 
characters hyper combo. You can also perform this with you third 
character while your second character is performing his/her. Each hyper 
combo obviously takes up one hyper bar.

Team Hyper Combos/Variable Combo  - B + PA + PB
This move varies depending upon on how many hyper bars you have. If you 
have two hyper bars than you and your second character will come out 
and perform their hyper combos at the same time. If you have three 
hyper bars then all three of your characters come out at the same time 
and perform their hyper combos. Since this move requires a lot of hyper 
bars, it's best to get a really good feel of your team and learn a 
combo that a team hyper combo of your team can easily be connected 
with.

If any assist is performed and your assister survives, a big ASSIST OK 
will flash over your assister's life bar.

Snapbacks are a great move that can be used in a variety of situations. 
A snapback allows you to force change your opponent's current fighter. 
So if you're about to kill off one of your opponent's characters, and 
he/she changes, then you can perform a snapback to force change their 
fighter to change back to that character that had low life and finish 
the job off. This is one of many uses for snapbacks; experiment to find 
some more.

Snapbacks - D, FD, F + PA or PB
If you press PA while performing a snapback then your opponent will be 
forced to change with their second character, if you press PB then your 
opponent will be forced to change to their third character. If your 
opponent only has one inactive fighter, then your opponent will be 
forced to switch with it. Snapbacks require one hyper bar to use. 
Snapbacks are generally a charged up HP or HK.

-----------------------------!!IMPORTANT!!-----------------------------

Snapbacks can be blocked, and can easily be countered, be sure to 
practice them often in training mode. Remember snapbacks require one 
hyper bar to use, so only use them when needed.

Dashing - LP + HP or F, F
Air Dash - (While Airborne) LP + HP or F, F
Dashing is a very important skill that is used to dodge attacks, and is 
usually used to start combos. Some characters even have an air dash 
that will allow them to soar quickly through the air. Air dashes are 
especially useful because they allow you to get on the other side of 
your opponent. They also allow you to escape possible aerial raves to 
perform a devastating counter.

Back Dashing - B, B
Air Back Dash - (While Airborne)
Back dashing is just the opposite of regular dashing. The regular dash 
is mainly used to get close to your opponent, and start combos, where 
as the back dash is mainly used as a retreating type move. Some 
characters even have a back air dash, which is very useful to dodge 
anti-air moves. 

Super Jump - D, U
Super Jumping pretty much has the same concept as dashing; you can use 
to get out of an enemy's attacks and it is a great starter for aerial 
raves. Super jumping allows you to perform a very high jump. You 
usually have to perform a super jump after performing a launcher to 
take full advantage of an aerial rave.

Double Jump - U, U
Triple Jump - U, U, U
Some characters even have double and triple jumps, these characters 
usually have great aerial rave possibilities. Perform a super jump and 
keep pressing jump after a set of attacks to get in a wonderful combo 
that will make your opponent's life fall tremendously.

Very limited characters have double and triple jumps, the characters 
with double and triple jumps are usually very fast with weak attacks.

You can save your extra jump when descending from your first jump, this 
can sometimes confuse your opponent and it's a nice set up for a combo. 
When performing an aerial rave save your second and third jumps for 
after the first series of air attacks, the results of this combo are 
deadly.

-----------------------------!!IMPORTANT!!-----------------------------

Remember very few characters have double and triple jumps, so make sure 
and check to see if your character has it. I will tell you if a 
character has a double or triple jump in the move list section of the 
guide.

=                            3f: Taunting                             =
=                            ------------                             =
=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Taunting is done by simply pressing the select button on the 
Playstation 2 or X-Box, the start button on the arcade or LK + start on 
the Dreamcast. When the commands are inputted correctly your current 
character will come out and do a little comedy act, during this time 
your character is vulnerable, however they rarely last more than a 
second. So why even use a taunt? Well, your opponent can get a false 
sense of security and decide to go up to you, making it a great 
opportunity for a quick counter attack. 

I decided not to list the taunts in the move lists, because they are 
all meant for the same purpose, and I really want you to see for 
yourself what the characters do, instead of having me ruin it for you. 
(Some of them are quite funny.) However there is one character in the 
game named Dan who has multiple taunts. A lot of his special moves are 
taunts, and he even has a taunt hyper combo.

=                         ------------------                          =
=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

The buttons for medium attacks were taken out, however medium attacks 
can still be performed. Some characters can use it by pressing a 
certain direction plus a low or high attack button, although medium 
attacks are only usually used while comboing.

Follow Up Medium Attacks - (Air or Ground) LP, LP or LK, LK
To make the medium attack for your character appear, simply press a low 
attack button twice, do make sure that the first low attack connects 
though or the medium attack will not show up.

Reverse Order Medium Attacks - (Air or Ground) LP, LK, LP or LK, LP, LK
While performing a combo, you don't actually have to input 2 low attack 
commands in a row to make your character perform a medium attack, all 
you have to do is input 1 low attack command, then input the other low 
attack button, then hit the first low attack button again. (i.e. LP, 
LK, LP) The last low attack will actually be a medium attack. Just like 
the low attack, low attack version, this will not work unless the 
initial hit connects.

-----------------------------!!IMPORTANT!!-----------------------------

Medium attacks are needed to successfully make a good combo. Without 
them, combos are almost guaranteed to be short and pretty much useless. 
I did use a lot of medium attacks in the combos listed in this guide, 
however I listed them as a low attack, not a medium attack.

=                         3h: Canceling Moves                         =
=                         -------------------                         =
=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Canceling moves are pretty much the only way to successfully perform a 
combo that has a special move or a hyper combo in it. Canceling is a 
simple process that can easily be mastered after a little practice.

While performing a high attack, or special move, immediately input the 
commands for another special move, or a hyper combo. Your character 
should stop performing the current move and a new move should begin.

Remember, while canceling moves you must input the next move VERY 
quickly, or the canceling will fail, and could possibly ruin your combo 
and leave you open for attack.

Canceling is an effective way to get hyper combos added to a regular 
combo. The result of doing this is usually very deadly. Remember: 
experimenting is the key to finding new combos.

-----------------------------!!IMPORTANT!!-----------------------------

Many combos listed in this guide involve canceling, so make sure you 
learn how to do it before going on to some of the more complicated 
combos in the guide.

=                            3i: Chipping                             =
=                            ------------                             =
=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Chipping is pretty easy to explain, it's when damage is taken while you 
block. Although it sounds simple, chipping is a very hard skill to 
master. The key to being able to chip successfully is to have a 
character in your group that can easily restore your hyper bar.

Two great characters that come to mind are Cyclops and Storm, they can 
easily gain lots of hyper meter, and Storm can even deliver awesome 
chipping damage. Like most things though, the key to finding a good 
meter builder for your team is to experiment. 

After you find a good meter builder for your team, it's time to find 
out who can chip well in the game. Two of the best characters in the 
game for chipping are B.B. Hood and Servbot. Both have awesome hyper 
combos that will deliver a lot of damage while your opponent is 
blocking.

In my opinion, Servbot is the best chipper in the game, although 
Servbot has a lot of low points, he wins it all back by his power to 
chip. His hyper combo, Lunch Rush, will do the same amount of damage to 
your opponent whether they are blocking or not, in fact his chipping is 
so powerful that it will break Iceman's no damage block!

Chipping is a widely used skill, so knowing how to avoid chip damage is 
just as important as knowing how to chip. One of the main things you 
need to practice are variable counters, variable counters can stop chip 
damage right in their process, and hopefully stop your enemy from 
attacking all together. However, this does require 1 hyper bar, and 
requires you to change your current character. 

Another method is learning how to jump over certain attack before they 
even start to hit you; this method is sometimes hard though since some 
characters are better jumpers than others. The last method I can think 
of is to learn how to counter a wide variety of moves. Although 
countering people like Servbot is very difficult, it can be done. 
Remember to experiment with your character to find out which way is 
best to avoid chip damage.

-----------------------------!!IMPORTANT!!-----------------------------

Make sure you know when it's appropriate to chip, it's good to have 
your opponent in a situation where he/she cannot dodge attacks, since 
projectile hyper combos can easily be jumped over. However, characters 
like Storm cover a wide range of the screen, so little timing and setup 
is needed, just make sure your opponent can't perform an escape roll at 
the moment or you're as good as dead.

Please be sure to review the legend before going on to the following 
section, it's needed to understand the abbreviations I will use 
throughout the remainder of this guide. 

There are also a few things you need to understand before going on to 
the move list:

Throws - These moves are very self-explanatory, they are used to toss 
your enemy or slam them to the ground. Throws can generally not be 
blocked, and you must be very close to your enemy in order to input a 
throw command successfully. There is no specific way to input a throw 
command, it all depends on which character you are using and which 
throws you wish to use. There are some exceptions to these rules 
however, such as Colossus's Giant Swing.

Launcher – A launcher is a move that sends your opponent into the air 
and allows you to follow up with an aerial combo. Every character has 
different launchers at their disposal, some even have multiple 
launchers. Larger combatants, such as Hulk and Sentinel, require that 
your character use a launcher in mid-combo in order to weaken them 
before they will successfully "launch" into the air. A super jump can 
be performed by simply pressing FU after a successful launcher instead 
of the normal input commands; this tiny tweak makes aerial raves a 
surprisingly amount easier to perform.

Special Basic Moves - These moves are done by pressing a certain 
direction on the D pad along with a certain attack button at the same 
time. Some special basic moves don't even require that you use the D 
pad, but just the use of a single button. Take note that special basic 
moves also include double/triple jumps, and unique types of dashes that 
will require more than one button input to perform.

Special Moves - Special moves are moves that require one quick motion 
of the D Pad and end with an attack button. These moves are usually 
simple to perform.

Hyper Combos - These are very damaging moves, and require 1 or 3 hyper 
bars to perform. These moves can either be simple to input, or very 
difficult. Some hyper combos will fail if the initial attack misses or 
is blocked, while others are will continue even if your opponent has 
dodged or blocked the move.

Combos - Combos are done with numerous attacks, sometimes with the use 
of special moves, hyper combos, etc. While performing a combo your 
opponent cannot block in the midst of it. Once a combo starts it 
cannot be stopped unless your opponent performs a counter assist. When 
performing a combo make sure you input the commands very quickly or 
the combo will fail.

L and H Differences – Many special moves have both a low (LK or LP) and 
high (HK or HP) version. Usually, the low version of a special move is 
quicker, but not as powerful or lengthy, and the high versions usually 
have a slow start-up, but have lots of power behind them and usually 
travel higher, faster, etc.

Direction Throwing – Usually when performing a throw that gives you 
directional input options (For example, you can execute the move by 
either using F or B.) your character will throw your opponent in the 
same direction you used to input the command with.

Pressure Tactics – A set of moves that is used to corner your enemy in 
a barrage of oncoming attacks. These attacks usually consist of moves 
that cover all planes of the battlefield making it near impossible for 
your opponent to get out of the situation they are in. Usually, your 
opponent is forced to take heavy damage in order to break free of 
situations such as these.

Confusion Tactics – A technique designed to deceive your opponent into 
thinking a certain attack or move is coming and in reality something 
else is performed. Characters that have good confusion tactics are 
usually fast and perform well in the air. Confusion tactics rarely work 
on a computer controlled character unless using attacks like Cammy's 
Hooligan Combination.

Escape Tactics – A set of moves used to retreat from the enemy allowing 
the player to re-think or switch out characters safely. Escape tactics 
consist mainly of throws and aerial raves and are meant to take your 
opponent on by surprise.

=                              4a: Akuma                              =

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Character Overview: Akuma has been rated by many as being one of the 
best characters in the entire game, and it's hard to disagree. Akuma 
has a move for every situation, and his counters and combos can be very 
deadly. Akuma is generally used on teams that rely on a good mixture of 
speed and strength to win. Many players use Akuma to balance their team 
out. Akuma isn't the easiest character to use, but he's a very 
rewarding character to have in due time. His defense may be a little 
low, but the fact that he has an answer for everything negates this 
fact. Try taking control of the air with Gou-Shoryu-Ken, the ground 
with an airborne Gou-Hadouken or the distant with a well-placed 
Messatsu-Gou-Hadou.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Shoulder Throw - B or F + HP
Your opponent will be thrown in the direction you chose to input the 
commands with. It's a very useful throw to get your opponent away from 
you, or to get them into a corner.

Rolling Throw - B or F + HK
Your opponent will be thrown in the direction you chose to input the 
commands with. Like the shoulder throw, this throw is useful to get 
your opponent away from you, this throw is also a bit more damaging, 
but harder to connect with.

Hyper Rolling Throw - F, FD, D, BD, B + HK
Akuma grabs the enemy and spins him around multiple times. This is a 
very damaging throw that is best used to get your opponent into a 
corner.

Throw Down - (While Airborne) F + HP
This move is usually used to end an aerial rave, it's very damaging, 
but can easily be negated with a break away. It can also be used 
as a simple aerial counter.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

BD or FD + HP
This is an easy launcher to use. Try adding this to combos for full 
effect. Make sure you know that the BD version will protect Akuma from 
oncoming attacks, while the FD version is easier to add to combos. It 
all depends on what situation you're in.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Karate Chop - F + HP
This move is one of the best moves in the game, no joke. It actually 
allows you to break crouching blocks and start a devastating combo. 
Make sure this move hits though, because you could be left open for 
counter attacks if you miss.

Grounded Roundhouse - (Air or Ground) F + HK
This move is a great combo move, and if used properly, it's a great set 
up for a launcher, which can lead to an aerial rave. Try adding this to 
a combo. If this move does not connect then your opponent can easily 
counter it with an anti-air attack, so be careful.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Gou-Hadou-Ken - D, FD, F + LP or HP
This is a basic projectile move, the harder the punch the faster the 
projectile. This is a great combo move, but if you decide to use the HP 
version, Akuma will be stunned for a brief moment, leaving combo 
opportunities open for your opponent to take advantage of.

Zankuu-Hadou-Ken - (While Airborne) D, FD, F + LP or HP
This move sends a projectile at an angle to your opponent. This is a 
great ground counter, but leaves Akuma stunned if he misses. This move 
is also very easy to counter as well, but it's still useful since it's 
one of the few air-to-ground counters in the game.

Gou-Shoryu-Ken - F, D, FD + LP or HP
Akuma performs a flying uppercut when this move is executed. He also 
becomes invincible while the move is being performed, but he can still 
be countered with ease if he misses. This move is fast and travels with 
lots of speed, and the damage rate is also high. 

Tatsumaki-Zankuu-Kyaku - (Air or Ground) D, BD, B + LK or HK
This is a move where Akuma performs multiple airborne roundhouses in a 
row. Just like Gou-Shoryu-Ken. This move knocks opponents off their 
feet, but it can easily be ducked or countered. The harder the kick, 
the faster and more powerful the move will be, but remember if you 
decide to use the HK version of this move and Akuma misses, he can be 
countered with ease. 

Tenma-Kuujin-Kyaku - (When Airborne) D, FD, F + LK or HK
This move is an average ground counter, the harder the kick, the more 
damaging the move. You can't combo with this move, but it's a damaging 
ground counter. This move will require a lot of experimenting with 
before being able to properly execute.

Ashura-Senkuu (Forward) F, D, FD + LP + HP or LK + HK
This move is used to get out of throws and is also a great way to get 
behind your opponent. While Akuma is performing this he cannot be 
damaged. Be sure not to accidentally input the commands for Tenma-Gou-
Zankuu while executing this move.

Ashura-Senkuu (Backward) B, D, BD + LP +HP or LK + HK
This move is used to get out of throws and back away from your 
opponent. Akuma cannot be damaged while he is performing this move, so 
it's a good way to escape action for a brief moment.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Messatsu-Gou-Hadou - D, BD, B + LP + HP
This is a beam hyper combo similar to Ryu's Shinku-hadou-Ken. This move 
is a great move to combo with, but since it can't be performed in the 
air like Ryu's, its combo potentials are limited. This move also has a 
brief charge up time, so make sure your opponent isn't recovering from 
a fall when you try to perform a combo with it.

Messatsu-Gou-Sharyu - D, FD, F + LP + HP
This is an anti-air counter move that covers the length of the entire 
screen. Try using this to build up some pressure tactics or simply try 
adding it to basic ground combos for full effect.

Tenma-Gou-Zankuu - (When Airborne) D, FD, F + LP + HP
This move sends multiple Zankuu-Hadou-Ken's at your opponent. This is a 
great move to counter ground and anti-air attacks with. This move seems 
to be especially damaging on larger guys like Blackheart and Thanos.

Messatsu-Gou-Rasen - D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is a close ranged counter move that sends Akuma up in the air with 
multiple roundhouses. Make sure this move lands, or Akuma can be in for 
some unpleasant counters when he reaches the ground.

Shungokusatsu - LP, LP, F + LK, HP (Requires Three Hyper Gauge Bars)
This move requires three hyper bars to use, so make sure to use it in 
an emergency only. It's pretty hard to connect with, but since it looks 
like you're about to use Ashura-Senkuu (Forward), your opponent may be 
confused and attempt to counter rather than block. If you can connect, 
then expect devastation to follow.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
FU + LP, FD + HP, U, LP, LK, LP + Tatsumaki-Zankuu-Kyaku or Zankuu-
Hadou-Ken or Flying Roundhouse or HP or HK 

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This combo starts out with Akuma pretty far away from the opponent, if 
the FU + LP fails to connect, than immediately back away, because you 
will be left open for counter-attacks.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LP, Gou-Hadou-Ken, Messatsu-Gou-Shoryu

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This combo is very damaging, but it's also a very hard combo to connect 
with. Experimenting is key.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, FU + HK, FD + LK, LK, Messatsu-Gou-Hadou

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This combo is very useful and easy to perform, make sure it connects to 
avoid possible counters.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
FU + HK, HP, Gou-Hadou-Ken

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a very simple combo that has an interchangeable move set. Try 
experimenting with the combo's move-set for the best results.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
FU  + HK, HP, Gou-Hadou-Ken, Messatsu-Gou-Shoryu

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is one of the more damaging combos Akuma has to offer, to boot, 
it's fairly easy to connect with.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Akuma has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Amingo is a very strange character, his playing 
style: awkward, and he's usually only put into teams dedicated to anti-
air attacks and aerial raves. He is, however, a very good character by 
every means. Although he's slow, this is made up for the numerous pets 
Amingo can summon for cover while he goes in for the kill. He has great 
aerial raves, however is hyper combos suffer a lot, considering he has 
one anti-air hyper, and one grab hyper. Despite this, he can be used to 
build up hyper bars for the team, or just devastate the opponent with 
combos. His pressure tactics are also amazing, he can corner his 
opponents with his pets and perform an amazing ground or ground-to-air 
combo.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Shoulder Throw - B or F + HP
Your opponent will be thrown in the direction you chose to input the 
commands with. It's a very useful throw to get your opponent away from 
you, or to get them into a corner.

Air Throw – (While Airborne) B or F + HP
This is a good throw to escape possible combos with; it's also a very 
nice way to end an aerial rave with. However, please note that this 
throw can easily be evaded using a break away.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HP or FD + HK or BD + MK
To perform the BD + MK version of Amingo's launcher, simply press LK 
twice, the second kick Amingo will perform will actually be a MK. Since 
Amingo has a wide variety of launchers, it makes him a great aerial 
rave comboist. Take advantage of them to form good ground combos that 
lead into aerial raves.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Flower Spin - HP
Amingo has a very odd HP, when ever you press HP his arm will turn into 
a flower and spin around. This move does multiple hits and is a nice 
combo move. It also has good reach and is a nice counter. 

Needle Spin - D + HK	
Amingo will spin around and damage the opponent with needles. This move 
is very fast, and pretty damaging; add this to a combo for full 
potential. Since this move is very fast, you don't have to worry about 
counters too much.

Vine Whip - D + HP
Amingo makes a vine appear to attack your opponent. This is a good move 
that travels across the ground and also has some reach to it; try 
adding it to combos. It's also a very nice ground counter.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Child of the Ground (Grab) - D, BD, B + LK or HK
This move summons a cactus, if this cactus connects it will grab your 
opponent. This move is one of the best moves in the game, because it 
can't be blocked, and if it connects it leaves great opportunities for 
wonderful combos. This move can also be used as a shield for Amingo.

Child of the Ground (Punch) - D, FD, F + LK
This move summons a cactus that will perform a punch if it connects. 
This move can be blocked, but if it connects it will give you a very 
brief moment for combos. This version of Child of the Ground provides 
as a better blocker than the grab version because of the fact that it 
stays on the field longer if unharmed.

Child of the Ground (Kick) - D, FD, F + HK
This move summons a cactus that will perform a kick if it connects. 
This move can be blocked, but if it connects it will give you a very 
brief moment for combos. This version of Child of the Ground provides 
as a better blocker than the grab version because of the fact that it 
stays on the field longer if unharmed.

Joy of Green - D, BD, B + LP or HP
This is a great ground counter, but make sure this move connects or it 
will give your opponent a good chance to counter. You can't combo with 
this move, but if you're facing a human you do have a chance to confuse 
your opponent.

Shout of the Wind - (Air or Ground) D, FD, F + LP or HP
This is a great move, it cannot only be used in combos, it can be used 
multiple times in combos! Try some awesome aerial raves with this move 
to get the full affect of this. This move can also be used to get 
closer to your opponent. It's fairly damaging, so try combining it with 
your cactus friends along with this move to overwhelm your opponent.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Boon of the Sun - D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is an awesome close counter that sends your opponent for a ride. 
It will also connect if your opponent is directly over you. If this 
move connects it will leave you an opportunity for a possible ground 
assault afterwards. This move must be used in team hypers, which isn't 
a good thing since it goes straight up and has no outward spread.

Rule of the Plants - D, BD, B + LP + HP
This is a very hard move to connect with, if the initial grab does not 
connect, then the whole move will not connect. It's good when your 
opponent is confused and multiple characters are out on the screen at 
one time. Try to summon some cactuses to confuse your opponent even 
more before launching this move.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a very simple combo to use, make sure you cast Child of the 
Ground (Kick) right after the grab version of this combo won't work. If 
Child of the Ground (Grab) does not connect do not proceed with the 
combo.

                              |Combo #2|

                             ------------
This is a fairly advanced combo; it starts out with a simple ground 
combo and leads into an aerial rave. You may also want to consider 
summoning some cactus friends to use as a shield as Amingo goes in for 
the kill.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
A fairly simple combo that starts out with a ground combo and goes into 
an aerial rave and ends with an air throw. This combo is great because 
it gets your opponent away from you if done correctly.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, LK, FD + LK, Boon of the Sun

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
A very complicated combo, but if done correctly, it can be very 
damaging. It's one of the few combos that actually has Boon of the Sun 
in it.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LP Rule of the Plants

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
An easy combo that ends in a hyper combo, make sure that the timing is 
very quick or this combo won't connect. It's a good idea to have two 
cactus friends before you try to use this combo.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Amingo has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Anakaris is a great character that is played with a 
style to confuse your opponent. His attacks come out of nowhere, and he 
has moves that actually make part of his body disappear for a short 
period of time! His hyper combos are VERY difficult for beginners to 
input correctly, but when mastered, he has some deadly combos that 
should not be taken lightly. Another good thing about Anakaris is that 
almost all of his moves can be used in the air, or when he's on the 
ground. Anakaris is not recommended for beginners; because of his slow 
speed and awkward jumps, however, they can actually be used to his 
advantage if used properly.

 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Mummy Drop (Close) - D, FD, F + LP
This is a great combo throw. Anakaris's hands go out in front of him 
and wrap up your opponent; the move ends with a devastating throw. Try 
using this when your opponent is trying to get close to you and you 
want to get away. Make sure this move hits, or your opponent will have 
a good opportunity to counter.

Mummy Drop (Far) - D, FD, + HP
This move is just like Mummy Drop (Close), except Anakaris's hands go 
out really far in front of him. This move is good when your opponent is 
going close to you. You can also use this after your opponent advance 
blocks you to send Anakaris away from you.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

BD or FD + HP
Anakaris's one launcher is a good one. It's a great launcher to add to 
a combo, and since he shrinks into the ground when used, most of his 
body is protected for a brief moment of time. When not doing combos try 
to use the BD version to protect yourself from counters. 

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Air Dash - (While Airborne) LP + HP or F, F
Anakaris actually has an air dash, which can be used to go in for 
ground combos, or counter an anti-air move your opponent has just 
performed. Make sure to hold back while doing an air dash to protect 
yourself from possible counters.

Short Cobra Blow - HP
Anakaris's HP is actually a move, it send out a small cobra in front of 
him, this move can be added to combos, and is a very nice small range 
counter. Make sure you know that the cobra can be attacked, and 
Anakaris will receive damage for it if it is.

Karate Kick - B + LK
This move makes Anakaris do a karate kick, the great thing about this 
move is that it can actually break low block. It can't be added to 
combos well, so just use it when you've scared your opponent into 
blocking.

Disappearing Kick - (When Airborne) LK or HK 
Anakaris will make part of his body disappear and perform a kick that 
actually appears on the ground. This is a very nice ground counter, or 
anti-air counter.

Diagonal Pyramid Drop - (When Airborne) FD + LK or HK
Anakaris's legs turn into a big pyramid that attacks your opponent at a 
diagonal angle. Be careful not to get countered. This is a great move 
to confuse your opponent, or to trick them by moving in for the attack. 
Try comboing right after this move connects for full affect.

Vertical Pyramid Drop - (When Airborne) D + LK or HK
This attack will only connect to opponents directly under you. Make 
sure that you take full advantage of the combo opportunities that open 
up after a successful connection. Beware of possible counters for an 
unsuccessful attack.

Horizontal Pyramid Drop - (When Airborne) F + HK
Try to use this as an anti-air counter. Use the combo opportunities 
that open up after this move connects. Remember that the pyramid 
Anakaris forms can be attacked, so be especially aware of counters when 
you use this move.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Coffin Drop - (Air or Ground) D, D + Any Attack Button
This move is a great combo move that will throw your opponent off 
guard. The coffin acts as a barrier, so don't worry about counters too 
much. Use this as an anti-air counter or ground counter as well. This 
move has endless uses.

Cobra Blow - (Air or Ground) B or F + LP or HP
This is a good combo move and a counter for an anti air move or a 
regular ground move. Make sure to be careful though, because the cobra 
Anakaris holds out in front of him can be damaged, leaving an opening 
for great counters.

Pharaoh Judgment - (While Airborne) D, FD, F + LK or HK
This move is hilarious and useful. Use it on opponents who use anti air 
moves a lot. This move captures your opponents, turns them into a doll 
and makes them bow down to you. It's looks so funny. While in this form 
your opponent can move around, but not attack. You however are totally 
open to attack, so try doing a THC after this move connects.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Coffin Drop - (Air or Ground) D, D + LP + HP
This is the hyper combo form of the special move coffin drop. Multiple 
coffins come down on the screen and hurt your opponent. This move is a 
great counter, and can be used when you're unsure of your opponent's 
next move. If you get the move just right you can take 75 percent of 
your opponent's life!

Pharaoh Cobra Blow - (Air or Ground) B, F + LP + HP
You have to press attacks buttons after you input commands for this 
move. Each attack button will cause a different cobra to attack. Keep 
pressing LP, LK, HP, HK to get full affect of this hyper combo, 
pressing those buttons in that order will prevent your opponent from 
breaking out of the combo, or performing a counter. Make sure you have 
very fast timing on the first cobra, or your opponent may block.

Pharaoh Magic - (Air or Ground) HK, LP, D + LK, HP
This move can very easily be blocked, but if you catch your opponent 
off guard it's well worth it. The commands are hard to input, but get 
easier with due time.  If you can connect this move try using a combo 
afterwards.

Pharaoh Illusion - LP, LP, F + LK, HP
This move is a hard move to counter or block. When the initial commands 
are put in you have to press any attack button to juggle your opponent. 
If you're quick enough you can take away around half of your opponent's 
life bar. Try to use this move in a possible combo.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
BD + HP, FU, LK, LP, LK, Coffin Drop (Special Move Version)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is an easy aerial rave that will do a nice amount of damage. This 
move might also throw your opponent off guard.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, BD + HP, Pharaoh Illusion

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a hard move to input, so practice it in training mode before 
using it in the arcade mode. This move is very strong, and is one of 
Anakaris's best combos if you get the full affect of Pharaoh Illusion.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LK, HK, HP, Cobra Blow

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly simple ground combo that can be followed up with some 
confusing air moves like Diagonal Pyramid Drop.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
Vertical Pyramid Drop, LK, LK, FD + HP, FU, LK, LP, LK, Cobra Blow or 
Coffin Drop

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly simple ground-to-air combo. Trying catching your 
opponent off guard by using this.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
LK, LP, LK, HP, Cobra Blow, Coffin Drop (Hyper Combo Version)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly simple combo, but the Coffin Drop hyper combo at the 
end is designed to get away from your opponent, not really cause 
damage.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Anakaris has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment. 

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=
=                           4d: B .B. Hood                            =

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Character Overview: B.B. Hood is a very funny character, and also very 
misunderstood. B.B. Hood's reach is so short that she needs to rely a 
lot on projectile to attack, so what's bad about that? Well her 
projectiles are very slow, and sometimes disappear without going across 
the whole screen. So is there anything good about B.B. Hood? You better 
believe it! Her hyper combos are so powerful sometimes, that it will 
make even the most defensive characters fall before her might. If you 
can get close enough to your opponent then make use of her double jump 
to see some of the best aerial raves in the game. Her ground combos 
aren't half bad either.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------
 
Throat Cut - (Air or Ground) B or F + HP
B.B. Hood goes up, cuts the throat of your opponent, and throws them in 
the direction you chose to input the commands with. This is a great 
throw that does decent damage and gets your opponent away from you. Try 
following it up with a combo. The aerial version of this move is a 
great way to finish off an aerial rave, since the damage is inflicted 
when B.B. Hood catches the opponent, not when they reach the ground, so 
break aways are useless.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HK or MK
To perform the MK version of B.B. Hood's launcher, simply press LK 
twice, the second kick B.B. Hood will perform will actually be a MK. 
Both of B.B. Hood's launchers can easily be put into combos, make good 
use of them, because B.B. Hood has some of the best aerial raves in the 
game.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Double Jump - U, U 
B.B. Hood can make great use of her double jump by performing an 
awesome aerial rave, using her double jump, and performing a second 
aerial rave. Use this move to escape certain hyper combos as well.

Basket Blow - B or F + HP
This move is used to get closer or further away from your opponent, it 
all depends on how you inputted the commands. This is a great combo 
move, and can sometimes be used as a counter. Now that's what I call a 
picnic basket.

Mine Trap - DB + HK
This is a good counter move. Try using this when your opponent is using 
a dash move. Make sure not to miss or get this move blocks, because it 
will leave B.B. Hood stunned for a second, and it will give your 
opponent an opportunity to counter.

Knee Bash - F + HK
This is a great combo move, and a good counter for a dash move.  It can 
also be used to get close to your opponent, and you know what happens 
when B.B. Hood gets close enough to her opponent. Yup, combo heaven!

Ground Stab - Dash + B or F + HP
This move can only be used while B.B. Hood is dashing; it's a good 
counter that has lots of speed. Your opponent may be caught off guard 
because B.B. Hood can only do this move while dashing. It's good start 
to a combo.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

High Smiling Missile - B (Hold For 1 Second), F + LP or HP
This can easily be ducked or blocked. The speed of this missile is also 
very slow, so you may want to use it as a shield to get B.B. Hood 
closer to her opponent.

Low Smiling Missile - B (Hold For 1 Second), F + LK or HK
This move can be easily jumped over, but unlock the high version it 
can't be ducked. Try using this when your opponent is dashing. This 
version of the smiling missile is easier to counter, so use with 
caution.

Happy Missile - D (Hold For 1 Second), U + LP or HP
This is a good ground counter, but it explodes in midair. It will 
explode right on front of B.B. Hood if you use LP, and it will explode 
three-fourths throughout its trip if you use HP. Be careful not to 
accidentally use super jump when inputting the commands for the move.

Shy Strike - D, BD, B + LP or HP
This is a good counter, and can be added to combos. The good thing 
about this move is that it's very fast, leaving your opponent a very 
small amount of time to counter if B.B. Hood does not connect.

Cheer of Fire (Forward) - (Air or Ground) F, D, FD + LK or HK
This is a good combo move, finish an aerial rave with it, use her 
double jump, do another aerial rave and finish the second aerial rave 
off with this move. It's also a good dashing move counter, and has some 
distance, but make sure it hits, because it's easy to counter.

Cheer of Fire (Upward) - (Air or Ground) F, D, FD + LP or HP
This is a good anti-air counter. This move, like lots of other moves 
B.B. hood has, can easily be countered if missed. If this move is 
successful, try getting B.B. Hood away from her opponent and give 
yourself a moment to get your mind together.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Cool Hunting - D, DF, F + LP + HP
This move is an awesome hyper combo. It's fast, furious, very damaging, 
and has a very wide spread. It can also be added to some combos for 
insane damage. The top row of bullets usually won't hit grounded 
opponents unless they are very tall, so try catching them when they are 
coming down from a jump. If done correctly both rows of bullets will 
hit.

Beautiful Memory - B, BD, D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is good grab hyper combo, but it's all or nothing, so if the first 
grab hits, then the whole move will hit, but if the initial attack is 
blocked, then the whole move will fail. Try adding this to combos to 
get insanely deadly results.

Hyper Apple For You - F, FD, D, BD, B + LK + HK
This is a great hyper combo, but just like Beautiful Memory, this is an 
all or nothing move. It's starts out with a gun move, and ends with 
bombs. It's very damaging and can be added to some combos. How do you 
like them apples?

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, LP, LK, FD + HK, FU, LK, LP, LK, Cheer of Fire (Forward), FU, 
LK, LP, LK, Cheer of Fire (Forward)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a very complicated ground-to-air combo. Use B.B. Hood's double 
jump for the second portion of the serial rave. This combo is very 
damaging if done correctly, and can really make your opponent's jaw 
drop.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LP, Cool Hunting

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a damaging combo since it involves Cool Hunting. The top row of 
bullets probably won't hit, but the damage is all worth it. If the LP 
does not connect do not pursue this combo.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LK, Beautiful Memory

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is another damaging combo (just like every other combo B.B. Hood 
has) that makes great use of B.B. Hood's Beautiful Memory hyper combo. 
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------

LP, LK, LP, Knee Bash

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a good combo, because Knee Bash has the ability to get 
yourself, or your opponent away from B.B. Hood.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, LP, LK, LP, Cheer of Fire (Forward)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This combo is very damaging, and can be used to get B.B. Hood closer to 
her opponent for further attacks.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that B.B. Hood has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Character Overview: Blackheart is a walking combo target, but his 
defense is rather good to combat his height. His special moves are 
awesome, because he can literally trap the opponent into the corner and 
start pounding away. He has anti-air beam projectiles, and also has a 
projectile that travels across the ground, making ground movements 
impossible unless your opponent decided to block. Another great thing 
about Blackheart are his monsters, he can summon monsters and they will 
hold your opponent down, making it possible for you to go in for the 
kill. Blackheart also has the best dashes in the game, he has a back 
dash, an air dash, a backwards air dash, and even an extended air dash. 
Blackheart also turns invisible while ground dashing. Make good use of 
this.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Monster Charge Throw - B or F + HP
This is a cool looking throw; basically Blackheart grabs his opponent 
and makes creatures drain from his opponent. This is a good follow up 
move after Blackheart uses a dash.

Thunder Throw - B or F + HK
This is another good through that can be used after a dash is done. In 
this throw Blackheart grabs his opponent and sends electricity through 
him/her.

Air Throw – (While Airborne) F + HP
This is a nice way to finish off an aerial rave, also use it as a 
counter for slow anti-air moves. Make sure you know that Blackheart 
should use an air dash after this, because it is very easy for your 
opponent to use a breakaway when this move is used.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HP or MP
To perform the MP version of Blackheart's launcher, simply press LP 
twice; the second punch Blackheart will perform will actually be a MP. 
Both of Blackheart's launchers can easily be put into combos, make good 
use of them.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Extended Dash - F, F (Hold)
This dash allows Blackheart to do even a longer dash then his usual 
dash. If your opponent is in the middle of the screen, then this dash 
will place Blackheart behind his opponent, making it a great way for a 
sneak attack. Remember that Blackheart will become invisible while 
dashing, making him invulnerable for a short period of time.

Extended Back Dash - B, B (Hold)
This dash is an extended version of Blackheart's back dash. This is a 
great way to escape incoming attacks from your opponent. Like all other 
ground dashes Blackheart has, he becomes invisible when this dash is 
used.

Air Dash - (While Airborne) F, F or LP + HP
This is a great dash to get closer to your opponent while airborne, or 
to fly over your opponent's head and use a sneak attack. Since this is 
an air dash, Blackheart does not go invisible; it's still very useful 
though.

Back Air Dash - (While Airborne) B, B
This is a good way to escape possible aerial attacks. Use this and then 
summon some monsters to really keep your opponent away from you for a 
brief period of time. Again, Blackheart will not disappear while using 
this dash.

Aerial Monsters - (Air or Ground) HP or D + HP
Blackheart's HP will actually summon monsters that fly across the 
screen. These monsters will hold your opponent and prevent them from 
blocking. If missed, these monsters never hit the ground. The crouching 
version of this move simply sends monsters across the bottom portion of 
the field.

Gremlin Hold - (Air or Ground) HK or D + HK
Blackheart's HK will summon monsters that hold your opponent for a 
brief amount of time. This move starts out with a kick, so it's a good 
close range counter. When your opponent is trapped, take advantage of 
it, and do a combo. The crouching version of this move is almost the 
same exact thing as the standing up version.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Dark Thunder (Grounded) - B, BD, D, FD, F + LP
This is an awesome ground counter, which goes across the whole entire 
screen. Use this move to get your opponent in a corner and start 
pounding away!

Dark Thunder (Air) - B, BD, D, FD, F + HP
This is a good anti air counter. You may want to summon some Gremlins, 
or use an assist before this though to keep opponents away from 
Blackheart's lower body, if you don't this, Blackheart can easily be 
countered.

Inferno (Defensive) - F, FD, D, BD, B + LP
This move will appear right in front of Blackheart; it's a great 
defensive move that should keep your opponent away for a short amount 
of time. Watch out for projectile counters.

Inferno (Homing) F, FD, D, BD, B + HP
This is the same thing as the defensive version, except it appears 
wherever your opponent was standing when this was casted. The damage on 
this is nice, and it's a good setup for combos.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Armageddon - D, FD, F + LP + HP
This is a great combo move that covers a decent portion of the screen. 
If only the end portion of this move hits, then it is possible for your 
opponent to evade the area of attack, so be weary of counters.

Judgment Day - D, BD, B + LP + HP
This is an awesome combo move. Blackheart can add this to aerial raves 
as well. When you use this move you can control the flow of the 
projectiles by pressing U or D on the D pad.

Heart of Darkness - D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is an awesome ground counter, however, that's pretty much it's 
only use, since it's pretty easy to dodge, and it's pretty hard to add 
this move to combos.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, LK, FD + HP, Armageddon

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is an awesome, easy to do combo, that ends in a hyper combo. If 
the FU + LK does not connect, then do not continue with this combo.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
HP, LK, LP, LP, FU, LP, LK, Judgment Day

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is another good combo, however it's pretty hard for beginners to 
perform correctly.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LP, Dark Thunder (Grounded)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This combo was not made for damage; rather to gain breathing room 
between yourself and your opponent.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
Inferno (Homing), Heart of Darkness

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
Use the Inferno as a counter, then immediately input the commands for 
Heart of Darkness, this is one of Blackheart's best combos, because 
even if it's blocked, your opponent will still suffer a nice amount of 
damage.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
HP (Dash Forward), LP, LK, FD + HP, LP, LK, LP, Air Throw

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
Since Blackheart doesn't have an actual HP or HK, you're going to have 
to end this ground-to-air combo with an air throw.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Blackheart has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Character Overview: Cable is rated one of the best characters in the 
game due to his anti-air move and general projectiles. Cable relies 
heavily on his Hyper Viper Beam (Air Version) to counter many other 
moves and to sometimes chip your opponent to death. His other basic 
projectiles can overwhelm your opponent without putting Cable in too 
much danger, and his anti-air move (Psimitar) is one of the fastest, 
and most damaging anti-air moves in the game. His assist types are all 
awesome, and can easily fit in with any team. Cable has a move for 
every situation, and beginners and experts can easily use his tactics 
with ease.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Shoulder Throw - B or F + HP
Your opponent will be thrown in the direction you chose to input the 
commands with. It's a very useful throw to get your opponent away from 
you, or to get them into a corner. It's also a nice start up for a 
barrage or projectiles; simply throw your opponent in the corner and go 
projectile crazy.

Air Throw – (While Airborne) B or F + HP
This is a good throw to use if you're trying to escape possible combos; 
it's also a very nice way to end an aerial rave. However, please note 
that the effects of this throw can easily be negated with the use of a 
break away.

Psy-Charge - F, FD, D, BD, B + LP or HP
Cable grabs your opponent and charges him/her with electricity, then 
throws them across the screen. This move is really hard to land, and 
the uses are very limited. It is however a great close range counter, 
but if you miss then Cable is open for attack for almost 2 seconds! 

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HP or MP
To perform the MP version of Cable's launcher, simply press LP twice; 
the second punch Cable will perform will actually be a MP. Both of 
Cable's launchers can easily be put into combos, and that's saying a 
lot since Cable also has some of the best ground-to-air combos in the 
game.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Jump Kick - F + HK
Cable will perform a jumping kick, this move is a good ground counter, 
put it does put Cable in a lot of danger if missed. This move is best 
used when your opponent seems to be dashing a lot, but it does have a 
slow startup, so make sure you use it as soon as your opponent begins 
the dash.

Viper Gun - HP (Up To Four Times)
This is a good close range counter, and you can input HP up to 4 times 
for a 4 hit combo. The damage is really good, and it's a great way to 
fill up your hyper bar. However, your opponent will take no chip 
damage, and if this move is dodged, then it is easy to counter Cable. 
Remember, you can input HP up to four times; it doesn't necessarily 
have to be four times.

Air Viper Gun - (While Airborne) HP
The startup on the air version of Viper Gun is really slow, and its 
uses are pretty limited, however, it is an anti-air projectile, so it 
can be used as a good counter. Unlike the ground version Viper Gun in 
the air can only be used once, not four times.

Anti-Air Viper Gun - D + HP
My god there's a lot of versions of this move. The anti-air version of 
Viper Gun is a really good air counter that puts Cable in little 
danger. Make sure to use Psimitar though if your opponent is close to 
you. Another thing about this move you need to know is that the startup 
is slow, so watch out for people like Storm who have insane air dashes.

---------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Viper Beam - (Air or Ground) D, FD, F + LP or HP
This is an awesome beam projectile that counters a good amount of 
attacks your opponent will throw at you. You can also add this move to 
combos for full potential. While Cable is performing this move, you can 
press LP (Rapidly) or HP (Rapidly) + U to move the beam upward or LP 
(Rapidly) or HP (Rapidly) + D to move the beam downward. The startup is 
especially quick airborne.

Psimitar - F, D, FD + LP or HP
This move is the sole reason why some players even pick Cable. This 
anti-air counter move is fast, and damaging. It's also the move that is 
used when Cable performs his anti-air assist, and it's considered the 
best anti-air move in the game. This move also does multiple hits and 
can be added to combos.

Elec-Trap - (Air or Ground) D, BD, B + LK or HK
This move will temporarily make your opponent unable to move. The LK 
version of this move appears relatively close to Cable, whereas the HP 
version of this move appears across the screen. Take note that Cable 
can easily be countered when this move is used, and that it very rarely 
hits grounded opponents.

Crackdown - D, FD, F + LK or HK
This is good ground counter, and it's decently fast, so you have to 
worry very little about counter attacks. Cable finishes this move with 
a projectile, so getting perfect timing isn't necessary. This move is 
really useful when your opponent keeps on trying to get close to you.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Hyper Viper Beam (Ground Version) - D, FD, F + LP + HP
The ground version of Hyper Viper Beam is nowhere near as useful as it 
is in the air, however it can be used as a really good projectile, or 
ground counter. The startup on this move is quicker than many other 
moves in the game though, and can counter many hyper combo dash moves. 
Since Cable is a little bit better than most characters at building his 
hyper bar try using this move to chip. Although this move is quite 
good, the air version simply blows this one of the water.

Hyper Viper Beam (Air Version) - (While Airborne) D, FD, F + LP + HP
Now this is why Cable is so good. The startup on the air version is 
fast, and can pretty much counter any hyper combo your opponent throws 
at you. If you can successfully hit your opponent in the air when they 
are high enough and close enough, then you can hit them for a total of 
three Hyper Viper Beams (Air Version) before they hit the ground! 
(Timing is everything on that though.) Another great thing about this 
move is that Cable falls quickly from the air afterwards, so little 
worry about counters is needed.

Time Flip - D, FD, F + LP + HK
This is an awesome move, but it's nearly impossible to connect, since 
it has such a slow startup, but if you can hit your opponent, then it's 
well worth it. Another version of Cable comes out of the screen and 
starts hitting your opponent, while this is going on, you can control 
your Cable and start hitting your opponent as well. Use moves like 
Viper Gun and Viper Beam for full potential.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LP, Viper Beam

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a decent combo that ends in a special move. A good thing about 
this move is that little timing is needed.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a very damaging combo that will send your opponent up into the 
air when it's finished.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a good ground-to-air combo, however, if the initial LP does not 
connect, then do not go on with the combo.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a good combo to get your opponent away from you. It's also 
fairly damaging to boot.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, LP, LK, LP, Viper Beam

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly damaging combo, make sure that the initial LK connects 
or you can put Cable in a lot of danger.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Cable has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Cammy is a quick fighter who uses pressure and 
confusion tactics rather than an all out assault. She has her Hooligan 
Combination to keep opponents guessing and a wide variety of counters 
to keep the enemy at bay. Cammy also has an awesome ground as well as 
air game going for her. Her double jump also makes jumping over hyper 
combos and certain attacks easier, which is good, because Cammy isn't 
really one for boasting a great defense. Players may have to experiment 
with her assist types to find one suited for them since they all seem 
to be commands that are difficult to connect. Her team hyper combos are 
especially hard to use, unless in the hands of an expert, in which case 
the right timing could mean devastation.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Hooligan Throw – B or F + HP
The startup on this move is surprisingly slow for Cammy, but still 
retains value. In this move, Cammy takes the opponent and slams them 
over her back. You can use this throw to get much-needed breathing room 
between yourself and your opponent, although the countering options are 
limited.

Frankensteiner – B or F + HK
This is another move that has a slow startup, but can be used a 
wonderful combo starter. Make sure to take advantage of Cammy's 
wonderful speed since your opponent lands relatively close to your 
position if you successfully connect.

Air Frankensteiner – (While Airborne) B or F + HK
This is an awesome move that catches your opponent in midair and sends 
them back to the ground along with Cammy. This move can easily catch 
your opponent off-guard and is a wonderful chance to either perform a 
hit and run or counter attack on the follow-up.

Flying Neck Hunt – (While Airborne) B or F + HP
This is Cammy's fastest throw. She takes an airborne opponent and hurls 
them across the screen. Even if your opponent does manage to perform a 
break away (which is near impossible due to the speed), he/she will 
still give Cammy breathing room. The startup is almost non-existent to 
boot.

Fatal Leg Twister – D, BD, B + LK or HK, (Wait Until Close) LP or HP
Timing is key in this move. Cammy uses her Hooligan Combination as the 
startup for this move, but you have to be in an absolutely perfect 
position to perform this. If you correctly time this move than you can 
perform some serious pressure and confusion tactics to build up a 
wonderful combo.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

BD + HP or FD + HK or HK
Cammy's launchers are relatively quick and powerful compared to other 
fighter's in the game. She has a fast startup, but sadly they are all 
hard to build off of from combos. Use her double jump to take full 
advantage of her launchers, if not her combos may end relatively 
quickly. Her HK launcher seems to be an exception however, she can dash 
and use it at practically the same time, this is a great way to throw 
off your opponent.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Double Jump – U, U
Cammy's double jump is simply awesome. Due to her lack of ground-into-
launcher combos, Cammy relies heavily on her double jump to create 
awesome combos. Simply jump, perform a combo, and then jump again in 
midair to perform another combo. Cammy is also extremely fast and her 
double jump makes countering airborne opponents a breeze. Use Cannon 
Drill to take full advantage of her speed while in the air.

Shaft Kick – B + HK
A very good close ranged counter and nothing more. If you fail to 
connect this move than Cammy could be left severely open, but if you 
connect than you can get some breathing room and it leaves a nice 
opportunity for you to switch out characters.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Cannon Drill – (Air or Ground) D, FD, F + LK or HK
This is an awesome move than can be used a dash or in correlation with 
a combo. The fact you can use it in the air gives Cammy a sort of air 
dash, but unless you connect Cammy is left wide open for attack. 
However, the quick startup will leave expert gamers feeling little 
repercussions. This is easily one of Cammy's best moves and goes well 
with anything you have planed, just be careful not to miss or have it 
blocked.

Thrust Kick – F, D, FD + LK or HK
This is an awesome anti-air counter that leaves a wide variety of combo 
opportunities open for Cammy to take advantage of. It's also a great 
move to add in a ground combo. Just like all of the other moves Cammy 
has though, this one also leaves her vulnerable is she misses.

Hooligan Combination – D, BD, B + LK or HK
This move is the sole reason to use Cammy as a character. She can use a 
variety of attacks after the startup of just let the move flow and let 
the move end in a low kick. This version ends in a low kick and is a 
great and confusing close ranged counter. The fact that this move 
knocks your opponent off their feet is great because it will allow you 
to use an infinite amount of confusion tactics against your opponent.

Combination Cannon Strike – D, BD, B + LK or HK (While Airborne) HK
One of the three possibilities that Cammy has after performing her 
Hooligan Combination. This move is a great ground counter and it's very 
fast to boot. It's not only a great way to perform confusion tactics, 
but pressure tactics as well. The recovery time is also quick as well 
and doesn't leave your opponent much room for a counter opportunity.

Air Thrust Kick – (While Airborne) D, BD, B + LK or HK
This is an awesome air-to-ground counter move and can also be used to 
play some harsh pressure tactics. It also allows Cammy to get out of 
the air rather quickly, but the startup time is rather slow. If you 
connect with this to a cornered opponent then try to build a nice combo 
off of it.

Cannon Revenge – F, FD, D, BD, B + LK or HK
This is a very good close ranged counter that is very risky as well. 
Cammy will blink for a few seconds and counter any moves that are 
attempted to be thrown at her. It's especially good if you see your 
opponent dashing and ready to attack. The startup is almost non-
existent and if you connect that your opponent will go flying across 
the screen in the air to boot, giving Cammy the option to either run in 
for the kill of get some breathing room. Be weary if you miss however, 
you could leave her open for almost a solid second!

Accel Spin Knuckle – D, FD, F + LP or HP
This is an awesome dash counter. The area as to which it covers is also 
ridiculously large and can even hit some airborne enemies if they're 
close enough. Cammy will punch twice, which can also throw your 
opponent into thinking its safe to attack you. The startup is pretty 
slow, as is the recovery time, but this is one of Cammy's better 
confusion tactics move rather than one based on raw speed and power.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Killerbee Assault – (Air or Ground) D, BD, B LP + HP
This is an awesome move that can counter both airborne and ground 
opponents. Again, this is another move that leans towards confusion 
tactics. The speed is great as is the recovery time, and the damage it 
deals is wonderful as well. Cammy lands fairly close to the opponent if 
she connects, which leaves great opportunities open for combos. Just 
don't miss though, it could mean a very harsh counter for Cammy!

Spin Drive Smasher – D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is a great ground counter that ends in a high attack. It can be 
added to most ground combos as well and it's extremely easy to pull off 
thanks to its quick startup and recovery time. If the air portion of 
the move doesn't connect than consider canceling for another hyper 
combo with someone else on your team, the results of not doing so could 
mean a fatal counter.

Reverse Shaft Breaker – D, BD, B + LK + HK
This is an awesome anti-air counter and a wonderful move to use in 
combos. It's especially great when you perform a launcher and use this 
as a follow up move. The startup time and recovery rate are extremely 
small making this move hard to counter even if you entirely miss your 
enemy! To boot, if you connect then your opponent will go flying across 
the screen; giving you time to gain breathing room or switch out 
characters. 

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
(Dash Forward), HK, Reverse Shaft Breaker

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a quick dashing combo that takes advantage of Cammy's confusion 
tactics. Make sure you input the commands for Reverse Shaft Breaker 
quickly or your opponent could dodge it.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
LP, HK, FU, LP, LK, LK, HK

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly good ground to air combo that's fairly easy to pull 
off. Try not to get receive a counter from the initial LP however.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
FU, LP, LP, LK, LK, Cannon Drill

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
Make sure you land the initial LP while airborne or the combo will 
fail. This is a fairly hard combo to pull off since the button timing 
is ridiculously quick.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
Hooligan Combination, Spin Drive Smasher

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a great combo and easy to pull off. Trick your opponent and 
land a basic Hooligan Combination and then immediately follow up with a 
Spin Drive Smasher. Just watch out for counter attacks on the initial 
Hooligan Combination.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
D + FP, FU, LP, LP, LK, Cannon Drill

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly damaging aerial rave. Feel free to substitute the D + 
FP launcher for any launcher you wish. If you land this correctly then 
your opponent will fly across the screen and give you breathing room.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Cammy has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Captain America is a character that requires 
patience to learn. He has complete control over the air and ground, 
through deals most of his damage while on the ground. He can often go 
right through attacks and his shield gives his moves priority over 
most. He may lack great damage, but he makes up for this by being a 
wonderful defensive character. One downside of Captain America is that 
if he misses with his projectile then he could lose his shield. This 
renders him without a projectile, gives him a ton of less defense and 
renders most of his special moves useless. If you lose your shield you 
can pick it up again, but down be lured into a trap by your opponent. 
Also be careful while dashing with Captain America, he stops short 
right at the end of it and leaves himself open for attack. Take 
advantage of Captain America's beautiful air game by utilizing his air 
throw, shield slash and charging star. Along with a strong air-control 
game, Captain America can create some amazing pressure tactics.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Punching Throw – F or B + HP
Captain America will take his opponent and slam them into the ground 
causing them to fly across the screen. This is easily Captain America's 
best throw move because it gives you breathing room while dealing a 
hefty amount of damage.

Kicking Throw – F or B + HK
In this move, Captain America will take his opponent and throw them 
straight up in the air by kicking them. Your opponent will land on 
their feet and fairly close to Captain America after landing this 
throw, so recovery time for your opponent is non-existent. The only 
real use for this is to form pressure tactics against your opponents or 
to follow up with another attack. A follow-up attack is a great way to 
make use of this.

Air Throw - (While Airborne) B or F + HP
Captain America's air throw is significantly different from other 
character's versions. He takes his opponent and tosses them downward 
with a great deal of speed. It's almost impossible to perform a break 
away during this and this is a wonderful move to build pressure tactics 
off of.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

D + HP
Captain America's launcher is fairly limited and hard to combo off of. 
Try catching in airborne opponent of try performing a dash before the 
move to take full advantage of it. 

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Double Jump – U, U
This is a surprising addition to Captain America's set of moves. Use 
this to build aerial raves off of or to avoid ground projectiles. Since 
Captain America may be a ground fighter then you may find limited uses 
of his double jump, but this is a great way to take control of your air 
game or get close to your opponent.

Cartwheel – F, FD, D, BD, B + LP or HP
This is one of the reasons as to why Captain America is such a great 
character. This move allows the Captain to go straight through basic 
projectiles and attacks in general. If you're standing close enough to 
your opponent then this move will allow you to switch sides with your 
partner giving you some awesome pressure tactics at your disposal.

Lateral Air Kick – (While Airborne) U + HK
This is another fairly good air-control move that Captain America has 
at his disposal. It's great to knock your opponent out of the air or 
counter an oncoming aerial attack. The setup is quick and recovery 
time: non-existent.

Anti-Ground Kick – (While Airborne) D + HK
This is a good air-to ground counter. This is especially good against 
dash moves or pesky ground combatants like Strider. This has a good 
recovery time and combo possibilities to boot.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Shield Slash (Horizontal) – (Shield Needed) D, FD, F + LP
This is a fairly good dash counter, but really nothing more other than 
that. This move doesn't have the ability to go through projectiles and 
it's somewhat slow as well. The range it covers is good, but if you 
miss then you could lose your shield, and retrieving the Captain's 
shield against an expert opponent is anything but easy. The damage is 
high though and it does offer some ground-combo opportunities.

Shield Slash (Diagonal Up) – (Shield Needed) D, FD, F + HP
This is yet another great move Captain America has to control the skies 
with. The timing needed is very hard to master, but this can counter 
many air moves and throw off a lot of opponent who decide to jump a 
lot. If your opponent is close enough then this can hit grounded 
enemies as well. Just don't miss.

Shield Slash (Horizontal) – (Airborne, Shield Needed) D, FD, F + HP
This is an extremely risky projectile that travels through the air at 
great speeds. The area covered is wide and it deals great damage. It's 
also a wonderful anti-air counter against combatants such as Storm. 
There is a drawback however; this is literally the most risky 
projectile in the entire game. You will leave Captain America wide open 
if your miss and you practically have a 100% chance of losing your 
shield regardless if the move connects or not.

Shield Slash (Diagonal Down) – (Airborne, Shield Needed) D, FD, F + LP
A great air-to ground counter that, while still risky, isn't as 
dangerous as the other versions. It's a great way to counter your 
opponent's assists and is a lovely way to hit slow enemies. This is 
also a good dash counter. However, just like every other version, be 
sure not to miss.

Stars & Stripes (High) – F, D, FD + HP
This is a great move and a wonderful alternate to super jumping. This 
move can hit airborne opponents with ease and the startup and recovery 
rate are both extremely fast. Note, if the captain does not have his 
shield than this move will do far less damage.

Stars and Stripes (Mid) – F, D, FD + LP
This is another good anti-air combo that, after connecting, will put 
Captain America right back into the game. This version of Stars & 
Stripes also offers more combo opportunities, but if you miss then you 
can be put in danger. Note, if the captain does not have his shield 
than this move will do far less damage.

Charging Star – D, FD, F + LK or HK
This is an awesome combo move and is an awesome alternative to dashing. 
If the Captain has his shield while performing this move than he can 
pass through almost any projectile as well. The startup and recovery 
rate are both rather slow, so watch out. Note, if the captain does not 
have his shield than this move will do far less damage and lose its 
capabilities to pass through projectiles.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Final Justice - D, FD, F + LP + HP
A fairly good dash counter and is also good for pressure tactics, but 
don't miss or you will leave the Captain open for attack. The damage is 
wonderful and you gain breathing room if you connect. Just don't let 
your opponent trick you into using it and have them follow up with a 
counter.

Hyper Charging Star – D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is another move that the captain does far less damage with without 
his shield. This move has the ability to pass right through projectiles 
and even some hyper combos and also offers great combo opportunities. 
You can even go as far as to counter basic attacks with the use of 
this. Just be careful to use it when the captain has his shield, if not 
then even basic projectiles can counter this maneuver.

Hyper Stars & Stripes – F, D, FD + LP + HP
The sheer coverage of this move is great and practically covers, not 
only the entire ground of the stage, but hit airborne enemies as well! 
Just like practically every other move Captain America has, the power 
this one also weakens unless Captain America has his shield equipped. 
There are infinite counter opportunities with the move and even some 
openings for combos.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
FD + HP, FU, LP, LK, LK, Shield Slash (Diagonal Down)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly simple aerial rave. Make sure you input the commands 
for the correct shield slash or the aerial rave finisher will fail.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
FU, LP, LK, LK, Charging Star

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
Make sure the initial LP lands while Captain America is still airborne 
or the combo will fail.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
FU, LP, LK, LK, Charging Star, Hyper Charging Star

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is the same combo as the one above, except now you must cancel 
Charging Star for Hyper Charging Star. Timing is everything. 
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
FD + HP, Stars & Stripes (High)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a really great set of moves to gain breathing room or give you 
time to properly switch out characters.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, D + HK, Charging Star

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
A fairly good damaging ground combo, the timing is a little tough 
however, but this is a move that focuses around Captain America's 
pressure game.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Captain America 
has to offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Captain Commando has quite possibly the best anti-
air moves in the entire game. His Captain Corridor can dominate all 
parts of the playing field and his helpers are also useful on all areas 
of the stage. He hits hard, and is played correctly, he hits fast as 
well. The only weakness is his lack of basic moves and lack of damaging 
aerial raves and general combos. Captain Commando's ability to 
basically change playing sides is a great confusion tactic and his 
reach is also decent. His standard HP and leg sweep can also be used in 
combos. Just be extremely careful in the air, Captain Commando is meant 
to be an anti-air combatant, not so much an air player and leaves your 
opponent open for counter attacks if you decide to venture forth into 
that region of play.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Teammate Throw – F or B + HP
Using this throw will summon one of your teammates out and use an anti-
air attack on your opponent. The teammate selected is always random and 
there's an even a chance that Captain Commando will be the one to throw 
your enemy. I'll break down the following actions for you:

If Sho Comes Out:
Captain Commando will throw your opponent into the air and Sho will 
come out and barrage your enemy in shuriken attacks. This is a good 
confusion tactic throw and gives you time to rethink your strategy 
while the throw animations are currently playing.

If Jennety Comes Out:
Captain Commando will throw your opponent into the air and Jennety will 
use a flying move with swords to juggle your opponent in the air for a 
short amount of time. This has the slowest animation of all the throws 
and gives you a great chance to plan a follow-up attack. 

If Hoover Comes Out:
Captain Commando will hold your opponent in the air while Hoover uses a 
missile to attack with. This is the fastest of all the throws and sends 
your opponent flying across the screen with great speed allowing you to 
use some pressure tactics.

If Captain Commando Attacks:
Captain Commando will hold your opponent and send electricity through 
them for a brief amount of time. After this he will through them 
horizontally. The recovery time on this version is non-existent and is 
a great way to form pressure tactics.

Kicking Throw – F or B + HK
This is similar to the Captain Commando's teammate throw. Captain 
Commando will send electricity throw your opponent's body and kick them 
across the screen. This is a fast move used to create some breathing 
room, but watch out. The recovery rate may be fast, but your opponent 
lands on their feet leaving a follow-up on their part possible.

Air Throw - (While Airborne) B or F + HP
You have to be extremely close to your opponent to pull off Captain 
Commando's only air throw. If you connect then Captain Commando will 
take his opponent and throw them almost directly under you giving your 
opportunities to build up pressure tactics and land follow-up 
maneuvers.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HP or HK
Captain Commando has a surprisingly large number of possibilities to go 
along with his launchers. Both are decent to combo off of and the HK 
launcher can be used in a follow-up to a dash. The easy to pull of 
aerial raves at Captain Commando's disposal is another reason as to why 
his launchers are so deadly.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Leg Sweep – D + HK
Basically every character in the game has a leg sweep at his/her 
disposal, however, Captain Commando's version bears mentioning. It's so 
quick and easy to startup that its properties are practically 
unbalanced to the rest of the game. You can even cancel the leg sweep 
into a Captain Kick after it connects! This leaves escape or pressure 
tactics at your fingertips.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Captain Fire – (Air or Ground) D, FD, F + LP or HP
This is an awesome move that practically covers the whole screen. Its 
startup is slow and counter capabilities: weak. However, if you are 
airborne than you can use this move repeatedly to make Commando hover 
slowly to the ground. This will give you time to dodge hyper combos or 
basic ground-based attacks.

Captain Corridor (Close) - D, BD, B + LP
This is quite possibly the best anti-air attack in the entire game. Not 
only will your opponent go flying across the screen if it connects, but 
the damage is high and it practically covers the entire length of 
airspace in front of you. It's also a great way to gain breathing room 
and make your opponent back away. The only downfall is the recovery 
time, which is rather slow. This version hits right where Commando is 
standing and is a great counter for opponents ready to reign down pain 
from above.

Captain Corridor (Away) - D, BD, B + HP
This version of Captain Corridor lands directly in front of Commando. 
This is great for opponents jumping towards you are dashing for you. 
This is the better of the two versions to use to create escape tactics 
with.

Captain Kick (Mid) – B, BD, B + LK
This is a very fast ground counter that covers a decent portion of the 
screen. The damage is heft and combo possibilities exist. Try using 
this against dashing opponents to use some amazing pressure tactics 
against your adversary.

Captain Kick (Long) – B, BD, B + HK
This is the faster, harder and quicker version of Captain Kick gives 
Captain Commando the edge in most matches. This is an amazing move and 
is surprisingly effective against airborne combatants. This is also a 
great way to advance across the field instead of using a dash.

Captain Strike (Sho) – D, FD, F + LK
In this version of Captain Strike, your teammate Sho will come out and 
attack your enemy. This is a good counter for enemies jumping towards 
you or dashing at you. This move also has some combo possibilities to 
boot; this is one of the better Captain Strike's Commando has at his 
disposal.

Captain Strike (Jennety) – D, FD, F + HK
This is a fairly good anti-air counter and has a much faster recovery 
time than Captain Corridor. This only hits airborne opponents though 
and doesn't even come close to the ground, so the timing may be hard to 
pull off and your opponent can counter with ease if you miss. If you 
connect then immediately follow-up with another move.

Captain Strike (Hoover) – D, FD, F + LK + HP
This move is absurdly difficult to pull off if you're playing this on a 
console version, but rewarding never the less. Your partner, Hoover, 
comes out and launcher a very fast, and decently high, projectile that 
can double as low anti-air counter. The recovery time and counter 
possibilities favor your opponent however, so be careful when using 
this.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Captain Sword – D, FD, F + LP + HP
This is an awesome move that covers the entire screen. The damage is 
low, but if you manage to land this move while your opponent is 
overhead than expect a devastating result. Regardless, the move will 
send your opponent flying if you connect leaving a plethora of follow-
up opportunities and pressure tactics at your disposal. To boot, the 
startup is ridiculously fast.

Captain Storm – D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is a surprisingly good ground counter that deals a large amount of 
damage. If the initial dash connects then there is no chance for a 
counter and you can breath easy for the remainder of the move. (This is 
similar to Captain America's Final Justice or Sabertooth's Berserker 
Claw X.) This move also has a number of combo possibilities open as 
well.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

                              |Combo #1|

LP, LK, HK, FU, LP, LK, Captain Fire

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a surprisingly difficult aerial rave to pull off and the timing 
is difficult, but the damage is pretty good.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, HK, (Wait) Captain Strike (Sho)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
After the launcher you're going to have to wait for your opponent to 
fall a little closer to you before launching Captain Strike (Sho).
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, LK, Captain Kick Long

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is an awesome and damaging combo to use a pressure tactic against 
your opponent. This combo is fairly easy to pull off as well. 
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, HK, FU, LP, LK, LK, HK

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a fairly easy aerial rave to pull off against enemies who leave 
themselves open.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, HP, Captain Corridor (Close)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
A great combo to use against a cornered opponent and also a great combo 
to use to develop escape tactics.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Captain Commando 
has to offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Charlie is a pure tactical fighter that focuses 
around hit and run and pressure techniques to overwhelm his opponent. 
Charlie's Moonsault Slash is an awesome pressure move and his Sonic 
Boom is a wonderful projectile that can cover Charlie while he goes in 
for the kill. Charlie's Flash Kick is a great anti-air attack that 
almost single handedly gives him a strong air game. His aerial raves 
are also easy to pull off and are quite powerful to boot. Guile and 
Charlie play extremely similar to one another, so if you know how to 
play one, than the other character will be extremely simplistic to 
master.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Back Drop – F or B + HP
This is a general throw that send your opponent flying across the 
screen. Use this is a way to get away from your opponent to give 
yourself time to re-think or change out characters. The damage is also 
quite nice for a throw move.

Knee Barrage – F or B + HK
This is possibly Charlie's best throw move. The damage is surprisingly 
low, but the long lasting animation gives you time to plan a follow-up 
attack. While the animation for this move is going on try charging for 
a sonic boom and fire one just when the animation for your opponent 
hits the ground, the projectile should hit your opponent just before 
they recover and give you an awesome chance to follow up with a combo.

Knee Drop – (While Airborne) F or B + HP
This is a fast throw that can literally rip your opponent out of the 
sky and send them hurling down by Charlie's feet. This is a great 
pressure tactic move and a great way to use follow-up attacks. To boot, 
the recovery time of your opponent is slow.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HP
Charlie's launcher is very fast and powerful. Another great quality is 
that the combo possibilities are also numerous and you can even dash 
while using the move. After a launcher make sure you take advantage of 
Charlie's Moonsault Slash. The only downside to Charlie's launcher is 
just that, Charlie only has one launcher. Use with caution against 
expert players.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Spinning Back Fist – F + HP
This is a great follow-up attack to Sonic Break or Back Drop. Use this 
move repeatedly move a few footsteps forward to your opponent as well. 
Another good quality about this move is that you can cancel this move 
with a partner assist.

Jumping Kick – B + HK
This is a fairly powerful and fast move that can even be used in 
combos. During the period when you input this move you can charge up 
for Sonic Boom as well. Also try using this is a basic move counter.

Step Kick – F + HK
This is a faster and just as powerful version of Charlie's standard HK. 
The combo possibilities are terrific to boot and the recovery time and 
start-up time are almost non-existent. This is also a terrific way to 
safely advance across the stage. 

Knee Bash – (While Airborne) D + LK
This is a great combo starter for grounded opponents since Charlie's 
basic airborne LK hits upwards rather than down. The damage is quite 
low, but this move is absurdly fast.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Sonic Boom – B (Hold), F + LP or HP
This projectile is slow and somewhat of a pain to pull off, but it 
should be used as a cover for Charlie to go in for the kill rather than 
a standard projectile attack. Find different methods for charging up 
rather than simply holding back. For example, charge for the attack 
during Step Kick or Knee Barrage.

Flash Kick – D (Hold) or BD (Hold), U or FU + LK or HK
This is a really good anti-air or ground counter move that has awesome 
follow-up opportunities as well. Try going in for a combo after pulling 
this move off. While charging, make sure Charlie holds BD, not D; this 
will allow Charlie to block oncoming attacks.

Moonsault Slash – (Air or Ground) U, FU, F + LK or HK
This is an amazing combo move and the only special move that Charlie 
has that doesn't need to be charged. You won't be able to add this move 
to any ground combos, but it's fantastic for aerial raves due to its 
speed and fast recovery rate. Along with this, there are plenty of air-
to-ground counter opportunities. You technically have to be airborne to 
pull this move off, but since you jump on the initial command input you 
can use it while grounded as well.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Crossfire Blitz – D, FD, F + LK + HK
This is a move similar to Captain Commando's Captain Storm. By similar, 
I mean that it's a complete gamble. If the initial attack does not 
connect, than the entire move fails. If the initial attack does connect 
however, then expect good results. This move is surprisingly not that 
damaging but leaves Charlie right next to the opponent for possible 
follow-up maneuvers. To boot, the startup speed is incredible and is a 
great way to take advantage of an opening for attack. This attack 
covers roughly a third of the screen.

Sonic Break – D, FD, F + LP + HP
This is a good ground and low air counter. It keeps Charlie at a 
distance which gives him much-needed breathing room. During the moment 
of impact you can switch out characters or send Charlie close to your 
opponent and prepare him for the kill.

Flash Kick Justice – D, BD, B + LK + HK
This is one of the best anti-air counters in the entire game. The fact 
that Charlie sends out projectiles in front of him means certain doom 
for airborne opponents. The startup time is also wonderful and there's 
even possibilities for ground combos. Use this against flyers like 
Storm for awesome results.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

This is a fairly easy to use aerial rave that causes a fair amount of 
damage to the opposing force.

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
You're going to have to wait until the initial Sonic Boom makes contact 
with your opponent and combo off of it to make this combo successfully 
connect.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Charlie has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

=                            4k: Chun-Li                              =

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

Character Overview: Chun-Li is a fast, close ranged fighter that has an 
amazing air-game and pressure tactic system to boost her already 
amazing fighting style. Chun-Li has a triple jump and an air dash and 
has counters for almost any situation. However, instead of countering 
Chun-Li focuses on dodging attacks and than reigning pain down on her 
enemies through the use of their own mistakes. Chun-Li's only problem 
seems to be the lack of a decent projectile and low defense, but that 
doesn't really matter since an experienced Chun-Li player could take 
out an enemy before they land a single blow on her. Her head bounce and 
flip kick also offer some confusion tactics. In addition to all of 
this, Chun-Li has a hyper combo for any situation. Be careful not to 
fall under big guns like Sentinel or Thanos however, characters such as 
those could easily destroy Chun-Li's weak frame in a single combo.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Ground Slam – B or F + HP
This is a standard ground throw. In this move, Chun-Li will take her 
opponent and slam them across the ground causing them to travel the 
distance of the screen. This is a great way to gain breathing room 
between yourself and your opponent.

Air Throw – (While Airborne) B or F + HP
Chun-Li is one of the best air combatants in the entire game, and this 
is one of the reasons why. Chun-Li will take her opponent and throw 
them from the air to the ground with lots of speed and power to back 
her up. To boot, performing a break away to escape damage is extremely 
tough for your opponent to pull off.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HK or HK
Both of Chun-Li's launcher are extremely easy to pull off, but they 
both have the same attack animation; the only difference is how you 
choose to execute them. On one hand, you have the standard HK, which 
allows you to block incoming attacks, but combos become a tad bit 
tougher to begin. The FD + HK is for the combo enthusiasts, but leaves 
Chun-Li open for counter-attacks. Since Chun-Li has a phenomenal air 
game you will be using her launcher often.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Air Dash - (While Airborne) F, F or LP + HP
Chun-Li's air dash is awesome, it's fast and allows her to practically 
travel the length of the whole screen, if you add a triple jump to the 
formula then you need not worry about anti-air attacks, because it's 
near impossible for any standard anti-air attacks to reach the height 
that Chun-Li can soar. You can also build up some pressure tactics by 
air dashing and then performing a head bounce or flying kick.

Double Jump – U, U
Chun-Li's double jump is pure combo-bliss. Launch your opponent into 
the air, perform a combo, double jump and then perform another combo 
before your opponent even hits the ground. 

Triple Jump – U, U, U
Chun-Li's air game is so strong that not only does she have an air dash 
and a double jump, but she has a triple jump as well! Chun-Li can 
literally jump so high that she can go off the screen! Try using a 
triple jump and then a lightning kick to have Chun-Li literally float 
almost any projectile hyper combo.

Wall Jump – BU (Wait Until Up Against The Wall), FU
This is a great way to avoid basic attacks and form great confusion and 
pressure tactics against your enemy. Use this in combination with 
attacks like head bounce and flip kick for the best possible pressure 
tactics result.

Flip Kick – BD + HK
This is a really good pressure tactic move and dash counter. (If you 
can time it correctly that is.) This move can also be use to start some 
ground combos or gain control of the air by knocking down low-to-the-
ground, airborne opponents.

Kiko-Sho Minor – F + HP
This is a decent dash counter and a decent combo move. Try using this 
to safely advance across the screen against ground combatants like 
Zangief or Captain America. The only problem is that if you're to close 
to the enemy (and not in the midst of a combo), Chun-Li will throw your 
opponent rather than perform this move. That isn't really a problem 
though; if you're to close to the enemy it's better to throw anyway. 

Flying Kick – (While Airborne) F + HK
This is a good move while facing another opponent in the air. Chun-Li's 
standard airborne HK is a good combo move, so use this as her standard 
air-counter. Beware of anti-air attacks however and be sure to time 
this correctly or Chun-Li could be left open for attack by quick 
opponents such as Storm.

Head Bounce – (While Airborne) D + HK
This is an amazing pressure tactic move, air control move and standard 
ground counter. Thanks to Chun-Li's triple jump, she can hit your 
opponent numerous times before having to return to the ground. Try 
using this and then using air dash to form some escape tactics. (Even 
if your opponent blocks, it still gives Chun-Li a chance to escape.

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Kikou-Ken – B, BD, D, FD, F + LP or HP
This is a standard projectile that is a little bit of a pain to pull 
off compared to other projectiles in the game. Try using this as a 
standard escape tactic move. Your opponent may also try to block this 
attack and give you an opportunity to dash in for the kill or take to 
the skies to build pressure tactics. Since Chun-Li is a close ranged 
fighter that relies on speed, this move isn't that helpful. Combo uses 
are limited as well. 

Spinning Air Kick – F, D, FD + LK or HK
This is a standard anti-air attack that does a decent amount of damage 
and has great combo opportunities. Since this move has five separate 
points of impact, you don't have to connect on the initial kick in 
order for this move to be effective.

Lightning Kick – (Air or Ground) LK (Rapidly) or HK (Rapidly)
This is a classic move with a ton of uses; the only problem is having 
quick enough fingers to pull it off properly. You can add this move to 
both ground and air combos, and there are also countering and pressure 
tactic possibilities open as well. The main problem for this move is 
that adding it to combos is next to impossible since your fingers have 
to be ludicrously quick (at least on the console versions of the game). 
In addition to that, it's a great feat to pull this move off for more 
than two seconds at a time. In the midst of a match, the HK version of 
this move is next to impossible to pull off, and adding it to combos is 
practically out of the question. 

Sen-En-Shuu – F, FD, D, BD, B + LK or HK
This is a very quick ground control move, and is a great counter 
technique against other moves like Cyclops's Optic Sweep. Use this move 
to safely get close to your opponent, or try cornering your opponent 
after using it and building a combo from that. The startup and recovery 
time are almost non-existent to boot.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Kiko-Sho – D, FD, F + LP + HP
This is a hyper combo that deals a ton of damage for any unlucky 
opponent who leaves him/herself open. This move annihilates anything in 
front of or above Chun-Li. Try using this as a close ranged counter as 
well. Just be careful not to miss, it could give your opponent enough 
time to get behind Chun-Li and perform a counter-attack.

Senretsu-Kyaku – D, FD, F + LK + HK
Aside from combo possibilities, this move acts as a very powerful close 
range counter. Just be careful not to miss, a hyper combo projectile 
could spell doom for Chun-Li.

Hazan-Tensho-Kyaku – F, D, FD + LK + HK
This is another great anti-air counter move at Chun-Li's disposal that 
has a lot of combo possibilities and also has very quick start-up and 
recovery time. The damage for this hyper combo is also quite high for a 
fighter who focuses primarily on speed. 

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a very simple ground combo that deals a ton of damage to your 
opponent.

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is another simple combo that turns into an aerial rave and deals a 
hefty amount of damage. Try using head bounce on the way down for an 
almost guaranteed safe landing.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
(Dash Forward), LP, LK, LK, D + HK

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
You don't have to dash to use this combo, but the setup is faster if 
you do. The end result will have your opponent off his/her feet if you 
manage to land this properly. 
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
FD + HK, Senretsu-Kyaku

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
You're opponent won't feel the full effect of Senretsu-Kyaku if you use 
this move-set, but the damage is fair and the setup is easy to pull 
off.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
LP, LK, HK, FU, LP, LK, Head Bounce

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a good aerial rave that allows Chun-Li to end the combo in her 
soaring to the other side of the screen. This will allow her to execute 
a safe landing or form escape tactics.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Chun-Li has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

Character Overview: Colossus is a pure tank character. This iron-
platted hero takes little damage and has the ability to rein pain upon 
the opposing force, but he is a character that requires a lot of skill 
and patience to master. His lack of speed and moves are replaced with 
raw power and a wide variety of basic attack possibilities. He can work 
well with other fast teammates and he has a large amount of pressure 
tactics available for use. Try utilizing his Super Armor and Giant 
Swing often to gain distance and defense over your enemy. Also be sure 
to use his Power Tackle as frequently as possible in combos, the knock-
back effect will send fast characters (like SonSon and Storm) back and 
gain Colossus much needed breathing room.

--------------------------------Throws---------------------------------

Body Toss – B or F + HP
This is a fairly damaging standard throw move that tosses your opponent 
across the screen. The startup and recovery time for this move is 
surprisingly quick for Colossus and it makes pressure and escape 
tactics possible.

Body Slam – B or F + HK
This is a very damaging and effective throw that allows Colossus to 
slam their opponent into the ground for a large amount of damage. This 
allows you to break pressure tactics your opponent is throwing at you 
and allows you to form some of your own. Make sure you're close when 
you input the commands for this throw however, you could accidentally 
input the commands for a standard HK allowing your opponent to gain 
some amazing counter opportunities.

Ground Slam – (While Airborne) B or F + HP
This is Colossus's standard air throw. The great thing about this throw 
is that it literally rips your opponent out of the sky and Colossus 
will follow your opponent all the way to the ground. This makes 
performing a break away on your opponent's side impossible.

Giant Swing – (Air or Ground) D, FD, F + LP or HP
Since this is technically a special move, this is one of the few throws 
in the game that can be successfully blocked by your opponent. The 
damage for this move is high and combo possibilities are present. The 
HP version of this throw even has aerial rave possibilities. Be careful 
not to miss however, the recovery and startup times don't seem to be 
that quick.

-------------------------------Launcher--------------------------------

FD + HK or HK
Colossus only has two launcher possibilities and both versions have the 
same attack animation. These are power, yet slow, launchers that do a 
surprisingly large amount of damage. The FD + HK version has a large 
amount of combo possibilities while the standard HK version makes a 
better dash counter.

--------------------------Special Basic Moves--------------------------

Twin Air Fist – (While Airborne) F + HP
This is a quick air counter that has aerial rave possibilities and a 
quick recovery time. The damage isn't that high, but this move proves 
to be one of the only quick attacks that Colossus has at his disposal. 

-----------------------------Special Moves-----------------------------

Power Tackle (Forward) – (Air or Ground) D, FD, F + LK
This is a great move that has a ton of combo possibilities and dashing 
opportunities open for use. This can be used as a standard air dash 
that can be used against some of the faster characters in the game. The 
damage is also phenomenal and if you connect, your opponent will go 
soaring into the sky. This will open up both escape, and pressure 
tactics opportunities open. 

Power Tackle (Diagonal Up) – D, FD, F + HK
This is a standard anti-air counter that allows Colossus to annihilate 
an open airborne opponent. Combo possibilities are limited, but escape 
and confusion tactics are made possible via use of this move.

Power Tackle (Diagonal Down) – (While Airborne) D, FD, F + HK 
Aside from this move being a great air-to-ground counter, this is a 
wonderful attack to use to get an airborne Colossus back into the 
action quickly. Like all other versions of Power Tackle, the damage is 
high and, if you connect, your opponent will be sent flying across the 
screen.

-----------------------------Hyper Combos------------------------------

Super Dive – (Air or Ground) F, FD, F + LP + HP
This is the only damaging hyper combo Colossus has it his disposal; 
thankfully it can be quite useful for players with quick reflexes. 
Anti-air counters are possible and team-hyper combos can make great use 
of this powerful attack. Colossus will always land directly on the 
other side of the screen upon which he is facing, so be aware as to the 
location of your opponent. You're really going need to catch your 
opponent off-guard to land this move successfully and you can expect 
nothing less of devastation if you do.

Super Armor – D, BD, B + LP + HP
This move will allow Colossus to inflict a little bit of extra damage 
and receive less as well for a short amount of time. While the duration 
of this hyper combo is in affect, Colossus will not be able to be 
knocked off of his feet or knocked across the screen in any way, shape 
or form. Certain throw hyper combos and first-hit-connects-whole-combo-
connects hyper combos (like Cammy's Killerbee Assault) will also not be 
able to harm the iron-skinned hero. Just make sure to block, since 
Colossus doesn't fly back like normal other ground hyper combos (like 
Felicia's Super Sand Splash) could inflict more harm than usual. The 
duration of this hyper "combo" lasts around ten seconds.

--------------------------------Combos---------------------------------

The following combos contain aerial raves and ground combos, remember 
that there are endless possibilities for combos for all the characters 
in the game, so make sure to experiment.

------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #1|
                              o--------o
FU + LP, LK, LK, Giant Swing

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
After you land the combo, try dashing into your opponent to build some 
nice pressure tactics.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #2|
                              o--------o
HK, FU, LP, LK, Power Tackle (Forward)

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a standard aerial rave that inflicts nice damage and allows the 
player to build both escape and confusion tactics.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #3|
                              o--------o
FU + LK, LK, LK, LK

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is a surprisingly quick combo that knocks your opponent off 
his/her feet. Try to use a follow-up attack if you successfully 
connect.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #4|
                              o--------o
HK, FU, LP, LK, Twin Air Fist

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
This is another standard aerial rave, but unlike others, the ending 
move (Twin Air Fist) has a very quick recovery time which will allow 
for follow-up attacks to be performed.
------------------------------o--------o-------------------------------
                              |Combo #5|
                              o--------o
HK, Super Dive

                             Attack Notes
                             ------------
Since this version of Power Dive can only connect to airborne 
opponents, the damage for this combo isn't that high. There is an 
upside to this however; your opponent will most likely try to block 
Colossus on his decent, so utilize a throw to take advantage of your 
opponent's mistake.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember, the above combos are only a few combos that Colossus has to 
offer. Possibilities are endless, so make sure to experiment.

There were numerous versions of Marvel Versus Capcom 2 released on the 
shores of North America, the trick is knowing which one if best suited 
for you and what changes were made during port translations. This 
section offers you information on the many differences the game has 
undertook throughout the years and what you can expect to find in each 
one.

Please know that I have a section dedicated to the reported technical 
problems each port has. So people looking for information regarding 
issues other than gameplay should take a look into section 7e.

The thousands of arcades across America who offer Marvel Versus Capcom 
2 all have one thing in common: fluidness. Unlike the home versions, 
the original arcade version of this wonderful game has the best 
controls and graphical interface.

In this version of the game you gained experience and leveled up to 
unlock new characters, costumes and stages. Every new level you 
unlocked something new. Sometimes you can get lucky and gain access to 
two unlockables for a single level up. There was no set standard as to 
when you would gain access to what, every unlockable feature obtained 
was randomly generated. (i.e.: You could unlock Storm at either level 9 
or 99 depending, it was all based on the luck of the draw.)

You were never really told what you unlocked or when you leveled up, 
but you had an experience tracker at the character selection screen. 
Characters who gained multiple costumes were highlighted in yellow and 
you made costume changes at the beginning of the game by selecting your 
character with a button other than LP.
Once you got to level 99 you unlocked everything in the game. Most 
arcades across America have already reached level 99, rarely will you 
find one that hasn't reached that level. (Although a few reset daily.) 
Most experienced players could get to level 50 in a day with enough 
coinage.
The longer you played the more experienced you received. You received a 
giant experience bonus after defeating Abyss and a minor experience 
bonus after winning a match. You could also receive even more 
experience depending on how well you performed through a match. (How 
many character stayed alive, amount of points, etc.)

Your game automatically ended once you defeated Abyss and people were 
able to interrupt your game, defeat you and continue from where you 
left off, so it was better to either start a new game rather than walk 
up, defeat somebody and take over from there point. The latter offered 
increased play time.

In versus mode you are unable to change your team on the fly and the 
stage you fought in was automatically selected for you. Each game costs 
around 25-50 cents, but I've seen the game as high as a $1.50 per game 
in certain areas. (i.e. New York City and Orlando, Florida both have 
machines in their areas with prices as high as $1.50 per match.)

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

The Dreamcast version of Marvel Versus Capcom 2 was the first port of 
the game. Players are treated to a wide variety of new features which 
include versus mode, training mode, the secret factor, etc. Of course 
the classic arcade mode was put in the game as well, which was an exact 
carbon copy of the original game.

In versus mode two people could play head to head, select their 
handicap and change teams after each round. The player who lost last 
was able to select the stage for the next fight. You could obtain 
points for the secret factor in versus mode, although these points 
gained were limited.

In training mode you are able to train your skills without the chance 
of dying against the computer. You obtain 10 points a minute for the 
secret factor, but this mode offered little experience for those who 
actually wanted to train for the game.

The level up and experience system was put back into the game, but 
unlock the arcade version, the level up system offered no real purpose. 
You obtained all the unlockables through a new mode called the secret 
factor. Here you could purchase new costumes, characters and stages for 
the game.

Players who have a VMU can create a mini game and swap their 
unlockables with their friends. (Those with the game Power Stone 2 may 
be familiar with mini games such as these.) This offered a new twist, 
but finding someone else with a VMU, copy of Marvel Versus Capcom 2 and 
an actual unlockable you/they want is next to impossible.

The graphical, sound and control interface for the Dreamcast version 
are considered by many players to be the best out of the three home 
versions, although finding a copy (much less a new copy) is next to 
impossible. The load times are also next to non-existent.

=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=

This version had a few, but noticeable changes from the Dreamcast 
version. New features such as a command list and character rank were 
added, but the level up system and tradable mini game was taken away. 
(The VMU game was taken away for more obvious reasons.)

The command list is accessible through any gameplay mode and showed a 
complete list of special moves and hyper combos, although it awkwardly 
didn't show every move in the game. This made the game much more 
playable for beginners.

Capcom also added a gallery full of pictures from the game. This added 
a unique twist, but also made collecting everything in the secret 
factor a lot harder. To combat this however, the pointless level up 
system was taken out and made collecting everything in the game a tad 
easier.

This version also includes a ranking system where players can view how 
many wins a team has, how many times a character has been played, high 
scores for all the different modes and which team is used the most. 
This was an interesting way for people to compete for high score glory.

Lots of moves were changed to better suit the Playstation 2's 
controller. For example, the player can now hit L2 or R2 to input the 
LP + HP commands and LK + HK commands and made performing hyper combos 
and team hyper combos much easier. Lots of names for the special moves 
were also altered from the previous arcade version. The special move 
names in this FAQ are the ones of that from the Playstation 2 version.

The graphics and sound are slightly inferior to that of the Dreamcast 
and Arcade versions, but it's not really noticeable. Many players also 
consider the controller layout the best and it makes certain combos 
much easier to perform.

The X-Box version of the game is a carbon copy to that of the 
Playstation 2 version. Everything is exactly the same except for the 
controller layout. The graphics and sound interface are slightly better 
than the Playstation 2's version, but inferior to that of the 
Dreamcast's. The load time is also on par to that of the Dreamcast's.

The main problem with this version of the game is that it's 
ridiculously hard to locate a copy of it, and near impossible to find a 
new copy. Poor sales reflect this. Japanese X-Box gamers were treated 
to an online mode, but this mode was cancelled at the last minute of 
the North American release.

The best version for you really depends on what you're comfortable 
with. The gameplay is the same throughout, but obtaining unlockables 
and the control scheme is anything but that.

Many consider the Dreamcast and classic arcade version the best out 
there, but the control scheme is key. The Playstation 2 version offers 
an awesome interface that is easy for beginners and experts alike, 
whereas the arcade version may be a little tough for non-arcade gamers 
to jump into.

The load times are all quick and fluid, but it takes a hefty amount of 
time to complete any version of the game in full. The easiest version 
to find is the Playstation 2 and arcade version, whereas the Dreamcast 
and X-Box versions are next to impossible. 

Here's a quick overview of each version:

Version: Arcade
Load Time: 2-5 Seconds Per Match
Control Scheme: Perfect for arcade enthusiast, terrible for the console 
gamer. Many tournament players own home versions with arcade sticks, so 
it's all about preference here.
Graphical/Sound Interface: The best out of all the versions. Everything 
was quick, fluid and bright, and the music was clear and precise.
Features: The original version of this game contained only one mode, 
but features a level up system unique to the arcade-gaming scene. 
Another downfall of this version is that the average person isn't going 
to take it home with them anytime soon.

Version: Dreamcast
Load Time: 1-3 Seconds Per Match
Control Scheme: Extremely tight controls and extremely responsive. It 
was a bit tough to perform some combos, but not impossible.
Graphical/Sound Interface: The best of all three home versions and even 
considered superior to that of the arcade version.
Features: Cool VMU mini-game, but a tad long to reach level 99.

Version: Playstation 2
Load Time: 3-7 Seconds Per Match
Control Scheme: The best out of all the home versions in my opinion. 
Every button is customizable, and everything is laid out properly 
making performing hyper combos and team hyper combos child's play. This 
may be the sole reason as to why fighting game fans may shift towards 
this version.
Graphical/Sound Interface: Solid, but not as clean as the Dreamcast of 
arcade version. Rarely noticeable however.
Features: Easier to unlock everything than previous versions.

Version: X-Box
Load Time: 1-3 Seconds Per Match
Control Scheme; The control scheme for the X-Box is either great or 
horrible. Those who are using controller type s will find a solid 
system here, but those with the original controller will find it next 
to impossible to perform certain moves.
Graphical/Sound Interface: A tad bit inferior to the Dreamcast's 
version, but better than Playstation 2's. Still barely noticeable and 
still contains the same solid animations from previous ports.
Features: Same exact thing from the X-Box version, the controller you 
own will either make it or break it for you.

Every version of the game has reported technical problems and may 
influence you to purchase another version of the game rather than the 
one originally planned. Here are a few of the problems people have 
stumbled across through playing each specific version.

Arcade Version:
Minimum reported problems. Reports of freezing have occurred, but this 
is rare. Near flawless. Of course, you can't really take this version 
home with you.

Dreamcast Version:
The Dreamcast version is infamous for breaking if you ever open up the 
cover while the game is spinning. This makes the game pathetically 
simple to break. No slowdowns reported, and freezing is rare.

Playstation 2 Version:
Graphical slowdowns, especially in the factory level, were reported. 
Freezing is rare to non-existent, but slowdown is common. Sound 
sometimes lags, and it's written on the Playstation 2's infamous blue 
disk, which means the game may break on frequent unless your 
Playstation 2 is examined on a regular basis.

X-Box Version:
The most stable of all the versions, no slowdowns reported and no 
reports of freezing have come up thus far. Graphical and sound 
interface may be inferior to the arcade's or Dreamcast's version, but 
is easily the most stable. 

If freezing occurs the best fix is to clean out your system and restart 
the game, if the problem persists then return your copy for a new one 
if possible or contact your console distributor for more information.

Version: .1 - 2/25/05
I started this strategy guide way back in 2003, but never got around to 
completing it. So, here I am, digging through my documents and I 
stumble across its existence. I've decided to take the opportunity to 
go ahead and complete it. This first version contains a partially 
completed move list (up to Cammy) along with a completed gameplay 
basics and port changes section.
Characters Left To Document: 49
Sections Left To Complete: 5
Sections Left To Rewrite: 17

Version: .2 – 2/28/05
Overhauled the format. I also decided to remove my .hack//INFECTION FAQ 
from the internet so I can spend more time with this guide. Completed 
more of the move list and fixed a ton of grammar and spelling mistakes 
that I included back in the day. Also rewrote a few sections and added 
more accurate information in the port changes section.
Characters Left To Document: 49
Sections Left To Complete: 4
Sections Left To Rewrite: 15

Version: .3 – 3/2/05
Did a whole lot of rewriting. I was also able to add the section on 
Cammy. Major overhaul to some gameplay basics sections. Look for 
another update tomorrow, which should include the character sections 
for both Captain America and Captain Commando. 
Characters Left To Document: 49
Sections Left To Complete: 4
Sections Left To Rewrite: 14

Version: .4 – 3/6/05
As promised, I added the section on Captain America and Captain 
Commando. I was also able to add the section on Charlie and do some 
major rewrites to several sections. I'm going through the slow process 
of rewriting a large portion of this guide, boy did I have a ton of 
mistakes and unclear information in here from back in the day! (Not 
like it's getting much better, but oh well.) Sorry for the delay on 
this version, I'll try to have the section on Chun-Li and Colossus up 
by the next update and hopefully complete the monotonous re-writing 
process.
Characters Left To Document: 46
Sections Left To Complete: 4
Sections Left To Rewrite: 13

Version: .5 – 3/9/05
The section on Chun-Li is completed. I did a major re-write for Akuma 
and also did a re-write for the assist type section as well. I hope to 
get the section on Colossus and Cyclops in by the next update. I also 
hope to completely finish re-writing the older sections of this guide 
by version .7 and all the old character sections re-written by version 
.8. Lots of work to go, I hope to get a major update written by the 
weekend, so wish me luck!

Sorry for the lack of updates, it's been quite busy on this end, but 
normal updates on this FAQ should now resume. I did a major overhaul on 
the format of the guide and added the section on Colossus. I wasn't 
able to re-write many of my older sections, but I will hopefully be 
completed with that tedious process by my next update.

Again, I apologize for the lack of updates, but this FAQ is going to be 
on hold until the end of May. I should finally have some free time by 
then to actually sit down and work with this guide. Once again I 
apologize, but you can look forward to a completed guide in the coming 
month or two. This version includes an overhaul on the grammar and 
basic format.

Version: .8 – 10/05/05
Sorry for the total lack of updates over the past year, I simply 
haven't had time to sit down and complete this guide. I'm picking it up 
again though and you should expect weekly updates starting on October 
15. Again, I apologize. This version includes a cleanup of the spelling 
and grammar.
