Virtua Fighter 5 (Pai Chan)

-  Well I'll put it simply....I've been working on getting a Virtua Fighter 5
   walkthrough up as a means of my "coming out of retirement" kinda deal.  Well
   I'm still hard at work with it, but I figured as much that I should at least
   put out there some character walkthroughs as well.  I was planning on doing
   this in the first place once I got the full walkthrough up, but I figured
   what the hell....lets do it now.  So with that being said I'm here to give
   you all this guide on Pai Chan.

-  As with every other guide that I've wrote, this guide is my own property!  I
   happily made this for all to enjoy and to use, and all that I ask is that if
   you are planning on using this for your site, then just ask me for permission
   ok.  I'm really easy to get along with and generally don't mind it so long as
   you ask for my permission first.  Don't go thinking "Oh he'll never say ok,
   lets just rip the guide and post it anyways" because that's a flawed way of
   thinking.  Just give it a shot sometime and you may be surprised!  My e-mail
   box is always open!

-  A big reminder to everyone out there....if you're looking for updates to this
   guide, then head on over to  I write for that site and that
   site only.....or at least, that's where the guide's origins are.  Any update
   that I do will hit there.  I don't really plan on keeping up with how many
   other hundreds of sites have my guides up for their use and have to go and
   update it on their site as well, so save yourself some trouble and headache
   and check my guide out at GameFAQs ok.  I really don't want to deal with a
   million e-mails asking me about updates and info and such when I'm telling
   you now what to do.

*** Pai Chan ***


-  Backstory  -

-  Pai had entered the Fourth World Fighting Tournament out of concern for her
   sick father, Lau.  But before she could see him, she was defeated and had to
   leave the tournament.  Pai searched for her father afterward, and found him
   just in time to save the weakened Lau from Lei-Fei's killing blow.  Hit with
   the realization that Lau did not have long to live, Pai realized that she
   could do nothing for her father-she had to respect his desire to pursue
   ultimate strength for as long as he lived.  So when Pai learned that Lau was
   participating in the fifth tournament, she decided to enter as well, telling
   herself that the only way she can show her love for her father is to be
   strong, both emotionally and in combat.

-  Personal Opinion -

-'s basically my take on Pai Chan:

   Ya know....with the way technology is going nowadays and the way we can make
   3D models look almost human is crazy....especially if you can find a woman
   that looks like her....damn!  A beautiful fighter to say the least, and very
   powerful, she is far beyond the stereotypical female fighter.  She can take
   down people in just a few good hits, and when properly mastered, you can
   destroy people with a blistering offense and a strong defense.  Pai Chan is
   easily enough one character that people would love to master simply because
   of her style of martial arts and the way she destroys the competition in no
   time flat.  Now that's not to say that she doesn't have her down sides.  She
   does take time to master and if you are wanting to end matches in about 3 or
   4 moves....then you're going to have to learn how to time her counters to
   hitting people.  Her counters are the big money makers and sometimes it is
   tough to time them against people, especially if they're veterans of the
   game.  So if you can learn how to bait people into attacking you the way you
   want them to do so, then you'll have no problem destroying everyone that you
   come across in this game.  Pai Chan is beauty and strength all rolled into
   one that you won't regret using once you've mastered.  I would say that she
   is an advanced to intermediate fighter so get some practice with a beginner
   character for a little bit and then move up to her.

   Ahhhh....the final chapter of this glorious guide of think I
   finally made it this far.  This part though isn't written entirely by me...
   This part is written by all of you!  That's matter what I say or
   do to tell you things about characters or explaining their ins and outs,
   everyone has their own style and their own way doing things with each
   character.  In that respect I give to all of you this section.  E-mail in
   your tips, tricks, and fighting techs that you find to be useful for the
   given character in the given situation you're in.  The only way this
   section can get bigger, is by all of you, so flood my e-mail box ok!  I know
   it's at the top, but for convienence my e-mail is:

   [email protected]

   I will give full credit to you that send in your tips and tricks, so be a pal
   and help out those around you by contributing to this guide!

   * Pai Chan *


-  First and foremost I give credit to Sega for coming out with one kick ass
   fighter.  I've never been so jaw dropped before by a fighting game with all
   that it shows off.  I'm still going strong with it, so I think I'm now
   turning into a Virtua Fighter fan!  Way to go Sega, by making an addictive
   game like this!

-  Secondly I'd like to give creds to all of those out there that asked for me
   to come back and make more walkthroughs.  You have no clue how much I missed
   doing these, and just because I'm in the Marines, doesn't mean I have to 
   retire from walkthrough writing!  Thank you for all the support and e-mails
   that all of you have sent telling me how good my past walkthroughs were and
   that you all wanted to see more.  Without the support, I think the drive and
   the love for walkthrough writing would of left me a long time ago.

-  If there's anything that you wish to add or correct in my walkthrough, then
   by all means, shoot me an e-mail at [email protected]  I'll take
   your comments and concerns seriously and get back to you as fast as I can.
   You will be given the proper credit as well for contributing to my guide.

   Thanks again, and I'll sees yas all later!
