INTRODUCTION =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Welcome to my Virtua Fighter 4 FAQ! The purpose of this FAQ is to help anyone looking to get into the Virtua Fighter series, or just anyone needing some pointers on Virtua Fighter 4 in general. You will eventually find complete move lists for each character in this FAQ, as well as strategies for using and fighting against each character. I also hope to add much more to the FAQ and make it just one big source of VF help :) In the next section (BUTTON KEY) I've included a little ASCII (yes, I suck at ASCII ^_^) and a list of all the button commands I will be using in the move lists so you will be able to read the lists and use them to help you. If you are new to the VF series, the best place to stop first is the BASICS section, which will outline the movement and various meaneuvers in VF4. The rest is pretty straight forward. If you have any kind of question in regards to the game, check in the FAQ section at the end. Your question should likely be answered there, but if you still can't find an answer don't hesitate to email me about it. Anyway, in closing, I just really hope this FAQ turns into something special, and most of all helps as many people as possible. Virtua Fighter may seem daunting from your first look, but give it some time and you too will bear the fruits of it's greatness! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 3.

MODES OF PLAY =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Arcade ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Arcade mode is the most basic mode of play in VF4. Arcade mode is just the main mode of the arcade version of VF4, recreated for home play. In arcade mode, you progress through a series of CPU controlled opponents until the final battle with Dural. You have unlimited continues with all of the opponents except Dural, which gives you a 'Game Over' immediately if you lose. You can use your created character in arcade mode (by pressing SELECT), but your record is not tracked in this mode. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Versus ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Versus mode is the basic multi-player mode found in just about every decent fighting game, where you can face off and compare your skills with a friend. In versus mode, you can also use your created characters (by pressing SELECT), and your stats will go up or down accordingly whether you win or lose, which makes VF4's versus mode more intense than any other. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Kumite ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Kumite mode is an innovative mode for a fighting game, and the main single player mode of VF4. This is where you will progress your created characters, unlock new clothing colors and unique items for them to wear, and track your win/loss record and rank. To rise in rank, simply do well. Once you go on a winning streak or defeat a certain amount of opponents, you will be challenged to a ranking match, where upon winning you will be promoted to the next higher rank. You can gain new items for your character upon defeating a character with an item you can wear, or meeting certain conditions, such as going on a 50 and 100 win streak. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Training ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are three types of training in VF4, and all of them will become extremely useful to players new to the series, and even veterens looking to add to their repertorie. The three types of training are outlined below: Command Training: You should definitely go through command training once or twice whenever trying out a new character, and revisit often. Command training will guide you through your character's move list, teaching you countless moves and showing you how to perform them. Press START at any time during command training to bring up the multitude of options you have at your disposal to better help you learn any given move. FREE Training: Free training is a very helpful mode. You should usually jump into free training right after going through command training to practice the moves you've just learned. In free training, you're able to do anything you'd like, as well as set the computer to act and react how you like. Press START during free training to bring up your options. Trial Training: Trial training is very helpful when you first get into VF4. It will introduce you to all of the skills found in the game besides the commands (like evading, recoveries, etc, which can also be found in the BASICS section of this FAQ). If you finish trial training using a created character, you will also get a nice little trophy icon by your character's stats. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A.I. System ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ AI system is kind of like your own little Tamagotchi. Only instead of eating pellets and taking poos, this Tamagotchi kicks lots of ass. AI system is where you make an AI character and train it (by sparring with it, teaching it new moves), then take it to arcade or kumite mode to test it's skills and grow it stronger. While watching it fight in arcade or kumite mode, you affirm if it has done good or bad by pressing the corresponding button after it performs a move. This mode, while strange, can get quite addicting, and it's always fun showing your friends how good you've trained your pet ass kicker :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Data Files ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is the mode where you will create your custom characters for kumite mode, as well as creat your custom AI file. Also in this mode is the edit file option, which lets you view and customize numerous aspects of your created files, from their appearance (adding and changing new clothing items and styles earned in kumite), to dozens of statistics that have been tracked as you play. You can also fully customize your controller settings in this mode, in case you prefer any other button set up. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Replay ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Replay mode lets your load and view any replays you've saved. Whether it be to help a friend with certain combos, or just show off your skills, this mode can be a lot of fun. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Options ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Options mode lets you tweak many different settings in the various modes, from health bars to time limits to match counts. Also, a very nice feature found in the option mode is the ability to change the main menu wallpaper. Press L1 or R1 to cycle between the various wallpapers of your choosing. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 5. BASICS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Movement ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Walk Hold any direction but down ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Walking is the slowest way of getting around the arena. You really should try to avoid using the normal walk whenever possible. Resorting to a character's own unique movement abilities or dashing is usually the best way to move, as it makes you harder for your enemy to get easy hits on you. An enemy can't hurt what he can't hit :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dash f f or b b ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dashing is one of the most used and most useful maneuvers. While it doesn't move you far, it gets you there fast, so a few dashes are a much better route to take then walking. A tactic often used in VF is quickely dashing in and out, toward your enemy, then withdrawing backwards quickely. This will often trick your opponent into attacking, and will leave him wide open for you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Crouch Dash df df or db db ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Crouch dashing can often be a very helpful move against defensive opponents. Doing a crouch dash is much like a normal dash, but instead of thrusting you head on into the enemy, a crouch dash makes your character duck while dashing, protecting you from any high attacks. Using this to your advantage can often open the enemy up for a combo that he never saw coming. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Run f F ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Though you won't use the run very often, it's always good to know you have it at your disposal. Running can be quite effective when the opponent is far away and you want to close the gab quickely, but can often leave you open for an easy attack. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Jump u P or u K ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Normal jumping attacks also aren't used often, because while they protect you from low attacks, they also leave you open unless you connect with a jumping attack quickely. Many characters have their own unique jumping attacks which are usually much more effective than straight jumping attacks. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Evade u or d ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Evading will quickely become one of the most used moves in your repertoire, as it is easy to perform, any character can do it, and it will often save your ass in a fight. If you see an attack coming at you, the first thing to always do is use that evade. Once you get good with it you'll be taking considerably less damage, and of course look cool while doing it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Advanced Maneuvers ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Guard ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The more you play VF4, the more you will find yourself using the guard command. Guarding is what will keep you going for long matches, and is in large part what makes matches between skilled players last much longer than with novices. To perform a guard, simply press the square button. To perform a crouching guard, press square while in a crouch (D). All moves except throws can be guarded, but you will need to learn when to switch between normal and crouch guard to block most combos (normal guard can block high and medium attacks, but not low attacks, while crouch guard can block low attacks, but not high or medium attacks). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Recovery ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Getting up the right way is often an overlooked tactic, but is very helpful in execution. To get up fast without any fancy maneuvers just press G repeatedly. To get up with a punch or kick, just press P or K. Now the best way to get up is a tech recovery, as it gets you up fast and can often catch an opponent off guard. To perform a tech recovery, just press G+P+K and either B, U, or D right as you're character is about to hit the ground. Depending which direction you press will determine which way you get up. Pressing B G+P+K will make your character jump back to his feet quickely, but will make you very open for another attack. Pressing U or D G+P+K will make you instantly roll and get up in the direction you pressed. Rolling is usually the best way of getting up, saving you down time and often health in the process. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Reversals ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Not all characters have reversals, but for those that do, reversals make playing defensively not only easier, but fun to watch. Peforming a reversal will make your character use an opponents attack against him, reversing his attack and dealing damage to him at the same time (while making you look cool, of course :) ). Each level of attack requires a different button combination, and correctly timing a reversal can be quite intimidating, but once you get decent with it it becomes a great asset. To reverse a high attack, press b P+K, to reverse a medium attack, press db P+K, and to reverse a low attack, press d P+K. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Parries ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Like reversals, not all characters have parries. Parries are essentially the same as a reversal, except instead of automatically dealing damage, parries just deflect a blow, leaving an opponent open briefely for you to follow up with an attack of your choosing. Of the characters, Vanessa and Jacky come with an automatic high punch parrie when standing still. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Throws ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Throws are a very important aspect of the game, and can often change the tide of a given match. Throws are very helpful if you're fighting an opponent who just can't let go of the guard button, as they are unblockable. However, you can escape or evade throws if you know how. The simplest way is to just duck immediately when you see a throw coming at you. Unless your opponent has throws that can get you from the ground, the throw will not connect. To escape a throw is a little bit more complicated however, as you need to know a bit about the opponent's character. To escape a basic throw, just press G+P (the basic throw command). If the character used a throw that required directional input, you have to press the last direction of the opponent's throw, plus G+P (which is why I said many throw escapes require knowledge of the opponent's character). For example, if your opponent attacked with a b f P+K throw, you would have to press f P+K to escape it. While it sounds a bit hard, once you've sat down with VF4 for a decent amount of time, you should be able to escape a good amount of the throws that come at you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Juggles ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To a skilled player, juggles become your primary way of dealing damage, and can be used to link together strings of attacks that do more damage than any normal move. To perform a juggle, you have to find the moves your character has that send an opponent into the air. Sending them into the air is the starting point of a juggle, from which you can follow up with chains of quick free hits on an opponent before he even hits the ground. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Charge Moves ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Certain moves in VF4 can be charged (Any move can be charged will be noted in the command list) to do more damage. To charge a move to it's maximum strength, hold the last button of the command until the move finishes. Keep in mind, charging a move takes much more time to complete than doing the move without charging, which leaves you wide open for several seconds. The best idea when charging a move is to get the move ready while your opponent is down so it will connect just as the opponent is getting up. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Staggers ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Staggers are another helpful move against opponents who love to guard, as well as just being a big help for an offensive player. Staggers are moves that will make your opponent stumble back a bit, leaving them open for attack. Staggers are a great tactic to use against a guarding opponent, because while it won't hurt the opponent, it will break his guard, letting you follow up with an attack. If you however are hit with a stagger, it can be frustrating, but to recovery quickely and usually not take extra damage, press the d-pad repeatedly in all directions and hold the guard button. This will usually guard you before an opponent can follow up, but it's not fool proof. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 6. MOVELISTS/STRATEGY =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ i. Pai Chan ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ COUNTRY: China SEX: Female BLOOD TYPE: O JOB: Action Star HOBBY: Dancing HEIGHT: 5'5" WEIGHT: 108lbs. B/W/H: 33/21/35 FIGHTING STYLE: Ensei-Ken ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Story ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pai Chan left the Third World Tournament after being defeated by her father, Lau. Upon returning home, Pai realized that despite her loss, her fighting skills closely matched those of her father. While training to improve her Hisou-Ken, Pai learned that Lau had contracted an incurable disease and yet still planned to compete in the fourth tournament. Determined to prove a worthy successor to her father's legacy, Pai plans to enter the tournament to defeat him. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pros and Cons ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + Pai has a large repertoire of fast and easy combos, making her a great character for players new to VF, and lets you play well offensively. + Pai is very fast, which makes countering opponent's combos easier than most characters. + Pai has an extensive amount of reversals, making her an effective defensive player. - Pai is one of the weaker characters. Most of her moves don't do large amounts of damage, so she has to rely on her speed. - Though Pai has a lot of combos, due to her speed they end very quickely, leaving you open unless you follow up quickely. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Strategies As Pai ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pai is as graceful to play with as she is beautiful, combining great speed and generally easy combos, making for an excellent character to start out with. Pai's biggest weakness is just that, she is one of the weakest characters. Where she lacks power however, she makes up for in her large list of reversals, turning other character's strength against them. This makes Pai both a good offensive and defensive character, but she is best used as a mixture of both. Matches become much easier the more you combine all of her skills, mixing a few short combos here and there, then resorting to her reversals as the enemy retaliates. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Strategies Against Pai ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First thing is first, when fighting Pai make sure to hold guard most of the time, releasing only on the offensive or when you need to move. Always be careful before attacking, Pai can reverse most high and mid attacks, so attacking low and following up with a good combo is the best way to break into her. Finally, the easiest way to attack Pai is to wait for her to try a combo on you. Her combos usually leave her open for a moment, giving you just enough time to hit her up for a nice combo. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Normal Moves ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * During 1, 2, or 3 P combo ** Can be blocked H *** Charge for 45 M damage **** Charge for 45 damage ***** During Shun'en Katou ****** Facing wall, back to opponent |~~~~~~~~~~~NAME~~~~~~~~~~~~|~~~~~~COMMAND~~~~~~~|~~~~~DAMAGE~~~~~|~HIT LEVEL~| | Chuken | P | 10 | H | | Renshou | P P | 10 10 | H H | | Raigekishou | P P P | 10 10 12 | H H H | | Renkan Tenshinkyaku | P P P K | 10 10 12 38 | H H H H | | Renkan Tenshin Soukyaku | P P P d K | 10 10 12 30 | H H H L | | Renkan Koutankyaku | P P P f K | 10 10 12 30 | H H H H | | Renkan Haitenkyaku | P P P ub K | 10 10 12 20 | H H H M | | Renkan Toukyaku | P P K | 10 10 10 | H H M | | Renkan Toukikyaku | P P K K | 10 10 10 25 | H H M M | | Renkan Senpuga * | G+K | 20 | H | | Renken Ensenshu * | d G+K | 20 | L | | Renkentai | P K | 10 20 | H H | | Souchuken | d P | 09 | L ** | | Senchuken | f P | 14 | M | | Jouhu Souchushou | f b P | 12 | H | | Ensei Soushou | f b P P | 12 20 | H M | | Ensei Koshouha | D f P | 20 | M | | Enshi Soushou | f f P | 20 | M | | Hi'en Dantai | f f P K | 20 20 | M H | | Jouhu Chushou | b P | 20 | M | | Soukasui | df P | 12 | L | | Souka Senpukyaku | df P K | 12 25 *** | L H | | Souka Rensui | df P P | 12 08 | L H | | Souka Rensuishou | df P P f P | 12 08 25 | L H M | | Rensui Toukyaku | df P P K | 12 08 10 | L H M | | Rensui Toukikyaku | df P P K K | 12 08 10 25 | L H M M | | Rikensui | db P | 12 | H | | Koushutai | K | 20 | H | | Koushu Kasui | K P | 20 09 | H L | | Koushu Kasui Senpukyaku | K P K | 20 09 20 | H L H | | Ko'en Senyaku | K K | 20 16 | H M | | Taitou Risenkyaku | K (rising crouch)| 25 | M | | Sensaitai | d K | 10 | L | | Renka Sentai | d K K | 10 19 | L H | | Rensen Soukyaku | D K K | 10 20 | L L | | Ensei Toukyaku | f K | 21 | M | | Ensei Toukikyaku | f K K | 21 15 | M M | | Honshin Choutankyaku | F K | 20-40 | H | | Koutankyaku | f f K | 30 | H | | Ensei Haikyaku | b K | 19 | M | | Senchutai | df K | 21 | M | | Haitenkyaku | ub K | 30 | M | | Rensen Haitenkyaku | ub K f K | 30 24 | M M | | Hi'en Tankyaku | uf K | 15 | M | | Hi'en Rekkyaku | uf K K | 15 15 | M M | | Ensei Katai | d or u P+K | -

Wolf Hawkfield ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ COUNTRY: Canada SEX: Male BLOOD TYPE: O JOB: Wrestler HOBBY: Karaoke HEIGHT: 5'11" WEIGHT: 223lbs. B/W/H: 48/37/39 FIGHTING STYLE: Pro-Wrestling ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Story ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The reason Wolf took part in the Third World Tournament was a recurring nightmare of the apocalypse. These nightmares ceased when the tournament ended, and Wolf returned home. He spent his time traveling from one fighting arena to another, training riorously. Unfortunately, the nightmares soon returned. Wolf visited the shamen of his settlement once again and was told that the tournament organizers planned to turn Wolf's nightmare into a reality. Not wanting to witness such a terrible event, Wolf resolved to enter the next tournament and prevent such a thing from happening. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pros and Cons ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + Wolf is undoubtedly one of the strongest characters in the game. Matches are won quickely with a good Wolf player. + His immense list of throws make defensive and reversal ladden characters rely on their weaker strategies. + Wolf can perform the most damaging move in the game: the Giant Swing. - Wolf is very slow, balancing out his power for novice players. - Some of his moves are hard to perform, and even harder to connect with. - Since Wolf's offensive consists of mostly throws, he can be very predictable, speedier characters can easily take advantage. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Strategies As Wolf ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Because Wolf's arsenal is based mostly on throws, your opponent will likely be expecting them. Try to always mix a few quick hits or juggles between throws to keep them guessing (the easiest intro into a quick juggle for Wolf being his f K). Make sure to get comfortable with your Tiger Driver (df G+P+K) as well, it will come in quite handy if your opponent tries to duck your throws, because it (as well as a few of Wolf's other throws) connects with a crouching opponent. If you need to quickely break up the pace a bit, pull out your Drop Kick (uf K) or Axe Lariat (f f P). Most of all, just try to always play conservatively with Wolf, only go in for the throw if you've got an opening. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Strategies Against Wolf ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When fighting Wolf, the most important rule is to always try to keep your distance. You know he's always got a throw ready to try on you, so never give him the chance by keeping your distance and going with the 'hit and run' route, dashing in for a quick combo and dashing out before he pops back up. Use his slowness to your advantage and always keep your moves fresh so he doesn't start to predict your combos. Finally, if he ever catches you in his Giant Swing, always make sure to do a tech recovery right as you hit the ground to greatly reduce the damage. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Normal Moves ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * During previous move |~~~~~~~~~~~NAME~~~~~~~~~~~~|~~~~~~COMMAND~~~~~~~|~~~~~DAMAGE~~~~~|~HIT LEVEL~| | Straight Hammer | P | 14 | H | Jap Straight | P P | 14 14 | H H | One Two Upper | P P P | 14 14 19 | H H M | Elbow Smash | P P f P | 14 14 16 | H H H | Combo Elbow Butt | P P f P b P | 14 14 16 20 | H H H H | Combo Double Arm Suplex | P P f P db G+P+K | 60 | - | Hammer Kick | P K | 14 20 | H H | Low Hammer | d P | 09 | L | Body Blow | f P | 18 | M | Dragonfish Blow | f P P | 18 20 | M M | Reverse Sledgehammer | D df f P | 30 | M | Axe Lariat | f f P | 35 | H | Screw Hook | f df d db b P | 20 | M | Screw Lariat | f df d db b P P | 20 20 | M H | Elbow Butt | b P | 20 | H | Shoulder Attack | b f P | 29 | M | Shoulder Feint | d | -- | - | Arrow Knuckle Real | b df P | 35 | M | Arrow Knuckle | df P | 20 | M | Verticle Upper | D f | 22 | M | Comet Hook | db P | 19 | M | Tomahawk Chop | uf P | 15 | M | Flying Meyer | f G+P * | 40 | - | High Kick | K | 30 | H | Double High Kick | K K | 30 16 | H H | Low Smash | d K | 17 | L | Knee Blast | f K | 30 | M | Low Drop Kick | f d K | 20 | L | Face Lift Kick | df K | 28 | M | Drop Kick | uf K | 30 | M | Level Back Crush | P+K | 30 | H | Running Shoulder Attack |F P+K(while running)| 23 | M | Tomahawk Flash | f P+K | 20 | H | Short Shoulder | b f P+K | 30 | M | Grizzly Lariat | df P+K | 20 | L | Neck Cut Kick | G+K | 30 | H | Rolling Sobat | f G+K | 30 | M | Flying Kneel Kick | f f G+K | 35 | H | Heaby Toe Kick | b G+K | 17 | M | Toe Kick Stunner | G+P * | 45 | L | Toe Kick Side | b G+K K | 17 17 | H | Front Roll Kick | b f G+K | 30 | M | Thrust Kick | df G+K | 25 | H | Missile Kick | uf G+K | 35 | M | | | | | Side Step Catch | G+P+K(during evade)| 50 | - | | | | | Jumping Lariat | F G+P+K (while) | 35 | M M | | (running) | | | | | | | Step Hammer | u P (while rising)| 25 | M | Rock Punch | u P (while jumping)| 25 | H | Toe Crush | u K (while rising)| 25 | H | Toe Crush | u K (while jumping)| 25 | - | Hammer Edge | u K(before landing)| 22 | H | Elbow Drop | df P (enemy down)| 15 | M | Elbow | u P (enemy down)| 25 | M | Front Roll Kick | b f G+P(enemy down)| 18 | M | Somersault Drop | u K (enemy down)| 16 | M | Double Claw | d G+P (enemy down)| -- | M | Rolling Hammer | P (enemy behind)| 12 | | Back Kick | K (enemy behind)| 30 | | Back Low Hammer | d P (enemy behind)| 20 | | Back Drop Kick | d K (enemy behind)| 20 | | | | | | Jumping Knee | b G+P+K (wall in) | 30 | | | (front) | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Throws ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * During Catch ** During Change *** Enemy's back to wall **** Enemy crouching |~~~~~~~~~~~NAME~~~~~~~~~~~~|~~~~~~COMMAND~~~~~~~|~DAMAGE~|~POSITION~|~ESCAPE~| | Face Crush Chop | G+P | 50 | front | G+P | | Brain Buster | b G+P | 60 | front | b G+P | | Body Slam | df G+P | 50 | front | df G+P | | Wall Body Slam | df G+P | 70 | front***| df G+P | | Frankensteiner | uf G+P | 60 | front | | | Arm Whip | f f G+P | 50 | front | | | Steiner's Screwdriver | df df G+P | 70 | front | df G+P | | Jackhammer | df df G+P G+P | 70 | front | df G+P | | Giant Swing | b db d df f G+P | 100 | front | f G+P | | Wrist Lock Throw | f df d db b G+P | 70 | front | b G+P | | Pendulum Lariat |G+P(during previous)| 50 | front | | | KS |d df f uf u ub b G+P| 80 | front | b G+P | | Low Sway Tackle | b b G+P | -- | front | | | Catch | f G+P | -- | front | | | Thunder Fire Power Bomb | P+G * | 80 | front | | | Push | df G+P * | -- | front | | | Front Neck Chancery | db G+P * | 60 | front | | | Slingshot Front Suplex | f G+P * | 60 | front | | | Change | f G+P * | -- | front | | | German Suplex | P+G ** | 60 | front | G+P | | Push | b G+P ** | -- | front | f G+P | | Calf Branding | df G+P ** | 65 | front | df G+P | | Tiger Suplex | b G+P | 70 | front | b G+P | | Sliding Leg Scissors | G+P | 50 | side | | | Cyclone Whip | b f G+P or f b G+P | 60 | side | | | German Suplex | G+P | 70 | back | | | Dragon Suplex | d G+P | 80 | back | | | Frankensteiner | uf G+P | 60 | back | | | Side Suplex | d G+P+K | 50 | front****| d G+P+K| | Tiger Driver | df G+P+K | 70 | front****|df G+P+K| | Big Bridge Bomb | df df G+P+K | 60 | front****|df G+P+K| | Double Arm Suplex | db G+P+K | 60 | front****|db G+P+K| | Cross Armbreaker | db G+P+K | 70 | side****| | | German Suplex | G+P+K | 80 | back****| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Reversals ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |~~~~~~~~~~~NAME~~~~~~~~~~~|~~~~~~COMMAND~~~~~~~|~~~~DAMAGE~~~~|~~~REVERSES~~~| | Captured | b P+K | 52 | H/M K | Dragon Screw | db P+K | 50 | MK | Low Punch Cut | d P+K | -- | LP =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 7. DUNCE ITEMS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This section was basically created solely because of the number of emails I get regarding questions with dunce (or 'disgrace') items.

SECRETS & EXTRAS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Below is a list of all the extra items and accessories you can get in Kumite mode and how to get them. Note, this list does not include any individual character special items, but I may include a section on that eventually. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Unlock Dural ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To unlock Dural, you must first wait until you fight her in Kumite mode. After she challenges you, you must win and it will unlock her as a selectable character in Versus mode. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Unlock The Hangar (Dural's stage) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To unlock Dural's stage for play in Versus mode, you must reach The Emperor rank in Kumite mode. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Extra Training Stages ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Below is how to get the 3 extra training stages for use in Versus mode: Training Stage 1: Gain 1st Dan rank in Kumite mode. Training Stage 2: Gain 5th Dan rank in Kumite mode. Training Stage 3: Gain Monarch rank in Kumite mode. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Virtua Fighter 1 Character Model ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To unlock your character's original character model from Virtua Fighter 1, you must reach 1st Dan rank in Kumite mode. To use the VF1 character model, hold P+K from when you choose your created character until the first match starts. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Old Win Poses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can unlock two of your character's old win poses from previous Virtua Fighter games in Kumite mode. To unlock old win pose 1, you must reach 2nd Kyu rank in Kumite mode. To unlock old win pose 2, you must reach 3rd Dan rank. To see your character's old win pose 1, press and hold G+P+K right after you win until your character performs his or her win pose. To see old win pose 2, do the same as with win pose 1, but instead of G+P+K, just press and hold P+K. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Coordinates ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As you progress up the ranks, your character will gain many sets of coordinates. Coordinates are just news sets of colors for your character's costume, they don't change the look or style of anything, they just change the color scheme. Below is a list of the ranks you will gain each coordinate set: Coordinate 1: 9th Kyu Coordinate 2: 7th Kyu Coordinate 3: 3rd Kyu Coordinate 4: 2nd Kyu Coordinate 5: 1st Dan Coordinate 6: 3rd Dan Coordinate 7: 5th Dan Coordinate 8: 7th Dan Coordinate 9: 10th Dan Coordinate 10: Monarch =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 9. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= In this section I will try to answer as many of the most commonly asked questions as I can for reference. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q: Will you answer questions I e-mail you? A: Yes, I will always try to be helpful when I can. I try to be a nice guy, but please always look in this section whenever you have a question. I will update it with the most common questions as often as I can, and it will save us both time :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q: My character suddenly put on a weird looking item and I can't take it off! Is something wrong with my game, what do I do? A: The most asked questions I get a referring to this problem. These items that are on your character are called 'Dunce Items.' I've made an entire section dedicated to this just because of the amount of questions I get asking about a particular dunce item. In the section 'DUNCE ITEMS,' you will find a list of each character's dunce items, why you got them, and how to take them off. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q: I've heard you can get each character's original character models from Virtua Fighter 1. How do I get them, and how do I put it on my character? A: The answer to this question can be found in the 'SECRETS' section. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q: When I go into the data files section to try to change my character's clothes with ones I've earned in Kumite, the game locks up and I'm unable to exit, what's the problem? A: I don't personally have this problem, but I've heard a few people say they did too. I'd suggest just exchanging it for another copy where you bought it. As long as you still have the memory card you used you should be able to keep all of your saved data :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 10.
