I've decided to do it on THE BOUNCER because this is such a fun game to play, with user friendly controls and a good story line. I liked the game quite a lot, so I want to help other people get the best from the game too so that's why I'm writing the FAQ. If you find anything wrong with the FAQ, like/dislike the FAQ, find something I have left out of it, want to tell me how great it is :P or just want to plainly discuss the game, please feel free to mail me at email@example.com I guarantee a quick reply. Well, hope y'all enjoy my FAQ! BTW, I'm a regular on the CE board on GameFAQ's so you could talk to me there too if you want. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Contents<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1)Version History 2)Introduction 3)Playing the Game 4)Characters & Their Moves a)Sion Barzahd b)Volt Krueger c)Kou Leifoh 5)Walkthrough 6)Secrets 7)Copyright notice/disclaimer ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>1)VERSION HISTORY<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hopefully I'll get everything to do with the game in on just the one edition so this version should contain everything to do with the game. There will be no more updates, partly because there is not enough of the game to have to write such a huge FAQ, partly because I have not the time to update this, so I'll try to get it all in. Version : 1.0 -Started FAQ, 16th August, 2001 "Introduction" Section Completed "Characters & Their Moves" Section completed ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>2)INTRODUCTION<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Welcome to the world of THE BOUNCER, SquareSofts Action/Fighting game for the PlayStation 2. THE BOUNCER will have you knocking the crap out of countless enemies rnaging from dogs to robots, with nothing but your bare fists! Sounds good, doesn't it. This FAQ will help you manage it all. The Bouncer goes through the story of three bouncers who struggle to get back their friend Dominique from the evil Mikado Corporation. The game is like an interactive movie, with lots of cool cutscenes. You play through all the fights and action packed parts of the game. The cutscenes change perspective depending on which character you control. Well, on with the guide! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>3)PLAYING THE GAME<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the Bouncer, you watch a cutscene, then play out the fights that ensue, like an interactive movie. I like to think of the game as a fancy version of Streets of Rage from the old Sega Mega Drive. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>CONTROLS<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -------------------------- Triangle |High Attack ---------|---------------- Circle |Jump Attack ---------|---------------- X |Low Attack ---------|---------------- Square |Middle Attack ---------|---------------- R1 |Block ---------|---------------- L1 |Extra Skill (ES) ---------|---------------- R2 |Taunt/Gesture ---------|---------------- L2 |N/A ---------|---------------- Start |Pause/Options -------------------------- And as I'm sure you guessed, you move about by using th Analogue stick or the D-Pad buttons. Also, as the PS2 buttons are pressure sensitive, if you press any of the attck buttons lightly, it will do one attack, if you press if hard, it will do a different attack. So therefore, each character has two of each type of attack. Also, if one of your characters gestures during a fight, and press the gesture button(R2) while they are, you will preform a Trinity attack, which is all three of you doing a combined attack. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>CHARACTER STATS<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Each character has 3 different stats which you can level up and max out. You do this by winning fights, and collecting BOUNCER POINTS, which are the equivalent of Exp. The character stats are as follows. LIFE: Like HP. This is how much damage you can take before you are killed. If your bar is long, ou can take lots of damage. If your bar is short, you can't. Once your bar drops to zero, it's game over I'm afriad. POWER: How much damage your attacks deal out to the opposition. The higher your power stat, the more damage you can deal out. DEFENSE: When you block an attack, your DEFENSE bar goes down a little bit. Once this bar reaches zero, your not able to block any more, so it's advisable to level this bar up once in a while, It tends to be ignored. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>BOUNCER POINTS<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You get BOUNCER POINTS by dealing the death blow to an enemy. They are like Exp points. You use them to level up your stats and to buy special moves. What you should do, is play through the game with one character, spend all your points on him through the game, then start over again with another character. Don't bother spreading your points out between your characters during one game. Play the game several times through to level up all your characters. The enemies get tougher as you go in the game, that's why you should stick with one strong character through the whole game. The points are used on the BOUNCER POINT EXCHANGE screen, you can access it after every time you fight. Buying new stats should always come in preference to buying new moves. It's very important to have good stats, if you have good moves they won't be any good, because you will be too weak for them to do good damage early on. So do your stats first! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>RANKS<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Your characters ranks go from G, the lowest, to S, the highest. Your rank goes up by you spending your BOUNCER POINTS. Below is an approximate figure of how much BOUNCER POINTS you have to spend to get your level to go up. G - F = 1000 BP F - E = 2500 BP E - D = 5000 BP D - C = 7500 BP C - B = 11500 BP B - A = 16000 BP A - S = 23500 BP NOTE:figures are approximate. *Thanks to IGN Guides for the above figures* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>4)CHARACTERS & THEIR MOVES<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SION BARZAHD Age : 19 Height : 5' 9" Fighting Style : A combined version of Kenpo and Street Fighting.

You can choose whatever character you want to use for each and every fight. I would advise you to choose one character, say Sion for example, and use him for the whole game. Then choose Volt, and use him for the whole game, then Kou. If you start going from character to character mid-game, you won't get the full story-line and you will be stuck with some mighty weak characters to fight with. For the walkthrough, I will give the name of every section you have to go in to and a strategy for each section too. OK, lets get a move on... =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 1 : The "Fate" Bar =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ 5 Masked Soldiers Watch the intro movie, it's not bad is it? You'll find yourself now in the bar where Sion, Kou and Volt work as Bouncers. Suddenly, some soldiers burst in the windows and try to invade the bar, and assault the characters. You now have to take control of one character. Choose who ever you want, and stuck with that porson through out. You'll begin on the top floor of the bar, each facing off against one soldier. You just have to beat the crap out of the soldiers here. The ground is now littered with objects that will get in the way, so watch out. The soldiers can follow you done the stairs, so be sure to finish the three up top off before going down to get the two down below. The main thing to do here is not let the Soldiers gang up on you, because if they do they can cause a lot of damage. The strategy here, for all three characters is to combine STRONG and WEAK HIGH ATTACKS and MEDIUM ATTACKS. If you get surrounded, try and pull off a STRONG HIGH ATTACK, as these will take out multiple enemies. Once you win the fight, watch the cutscene. Dominique is kidnapped! You all decide to get her back, and the way to do that is to get the train. To get to the station you have to go through the Central Square... =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 2 : CENTRAL SQUARE =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : 5 Masked Soldiers So your heading to get the train. On your way through the Square you are jumped by a group of enemies. The fighting area is wide open, giving you room to get around and maneuver to your liking. There are trees and buildings and stuff all around you where you fight, but it is best off just to keep the fight in the same place that you start off. There is plenty of room around here and no major things to get in the way except the trees, with are no problem to you. The guys you fight are the exact same as the first fight, so use similar attacks, and do a STRONG JUMP attack if surrounded. You shouldn't have any trouble at all in getting by this section. And there are a few things I forgot to mention earlier, so I'll mention them now. SAVE AFTER EVERY ACTION SEQUENCE. You never know what the next fight might bring. Second of all, and your probably bored to death hearing this, but STICK WITH THE ONE CHARACTER!!! There is no point at all in switching characters during the one game. It's now on to the Central Station. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 3 : CENTRAL STATION =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Security Guards (3 at enterance, 5 at train) You arrive at the station, you want to board the train, easy you say. Well it's not going to be as easy as you think. There has been a nice welcome party left for you at the front gate, 3 Security Guards! The fight area is nice and spaced out, so you have room to move about. Here, you are pushed for time because the train will go, so use attacks like the STRONG JUMP ATTACK to take out multiple enemies. You just want to kill them as fast as possible. Once the first three Guards are out of the way, you will be taken to the area beyond th turnstiles, and on your way to baord the train your group is met by 5 more Guards. You want to use the same strategy as before, try not to get ganged up on, and use your attack that will hit multiple targets. This fight will be a bit harder then tha last one because there are 5 Guards, not 3. If you win the fights quickly, you will calmly stroll on to the train. If you take your time and do it slowly, You will run after the train and jump on once you have caught up with it. From here, it's onto the next section. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 4 : MIKADO CARGO TRAIN =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : 8 Security Guards(3 on 1st car, 3 on 2nd car, 2 on 3rd car), Echidna. You have to fight your way down the roofs of three train cars here. The fight area is pretty small, but you can't be knocked off, or knock enemies off the roofs of cars. Try to kill all the enemies with one big shot for huge BOUNCER POINTS. For the two fights, just pummel the Guards until they are no more. On the 3rd car you have to fight your first boss, Echidna. She is tougher then ahe looks. Be careful, she is quite quick, and will try to pul off combo's on you. She is accompanied by two Security Guards. After the 2nd car, you have a chance to save your game. Buy any Special Moves you can for your character. They will help in the ensueing fight. Strategies for each characters are as follows. SION She attacks with lots of kicks and sweeps and things like that, so block them all. Now, if you bought a special move, use it here. After she has attacked, there is a moment or two where she is open to attack, so get your special attack in here. So block her attack, then when she is open, use your special attack. She should be no problem. VOLT Almost the exact same. Blocking is even more vital here. Don't bother with regular attcks unless you are behind her because you are so slow. Wait for her to attack, then block, then use your special move. KOU If you get the HEEL SMASH move, it's very useful. It knocks the enemy off their feet, the if you use a LOW ATTACK while they are on the ground you can do more damage. Still, keep blocking, and attack when she is vulnerable. Once the fight is over, Sion questions Volt about his past with Echidna, but the train is attcked by some planes. You have to find the CARD KEY in the room you are in. Just look in any three boxes, the key is always in the 3rd box you look in. If yu find the key, the train crashes. If you don't find the key, the train crashes, and the station also starts to flood. I would advise you to find the key. Now on to the next section. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 5 : EMERGENCY EXIT =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : Security Guards(3 in first two halls, 2 in third hall) Security Chiefs(2 in first two halls, 2 in third hall) This is the first level in the game where you have to contol the character out- side the fights. In the first hallway you enter you will be attacked by 2 Guard and 1 Chief. Once you kill these another Guard and Chief will attack you also. To beat these easily just use HIGH ATTACKS to do a lot of damage. Use a SPECIAL ATTACK if you are really stuck, but you should be fine. So now, once all of the enemies have been defeated, run down the hall. There are a couple of turn offs from the path you are on, but ignore these, they lead to no-where. At the end of the hall there will be a staircase, so go up this, and on to the next hallway. In this hall you will fight 2 Guards and one Chief, the same as the last hall. Another Guard and Chief will attack you once the other three have been dealt with, same as the last hall. This hall even looks the same as the last hall. So do the exact same as the last hall, and go for the stairs at the end of the hallway, and go up. Now, were in to a different hall. This hall is a bit different. You will have fight two Guards and two Chiefs in this area, and in the middle of the hall you fight in are some big crates. So dodge around the crates once you have won the fight and turn right to the door out. Now on to the next section. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 6 : EMERGENCY EXIT, PT 2 =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Remember you had to find the KEY CARD on the train? Well whether you found it or not will effect how this section plays out for you. If you failed to find the CARD, you will have to negotiate several passages where you have to get through them quicker than the flood doors close on you. In the first hall, run all the way to the end of the hall and turn right. Here you have to run by five closing doors. This should not be too tough for you. Be careful though, because if you get stuck behind a door, it's game over. Now, after you have run by the five doors, turn right again and go up the staircase. Run to the end, and go left this time. In here you have to get round some boxes and make it to the end before the doors close. It's best to use the Analogue Stick here. Once your through, go to the end and turn right, past a few more boxes. It's in to the last hall now. There are a fair few boxes in here to be negotiated, there are about 5 or 6 doors that close in between them. You have to be quick here but it still should not be of too much trouble to you at all. Turn right at the corner then go left in to another corridor with 5 more closing doors. Just run through these, to and your done with this section. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 7 : AIR CARRIERS =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : Three Carrier Soldiers. You come out on a balcony here, and it looks like you have no-where to go, but the group sees these Air Carriers going back and forth, and decides they are the way out. So you jump down on to one, to the surprise of the crew. The fight area is tiny. The six of you barely fit in to it. You should try here to use JUMP ATTACKS, because they will hit multiple targets, and thus multiply the Bouncer Points you earn. Try to get a couple of the soldiers close together then use a JUMP ATTACK to hit them all, hopefully killing more than one. If you are facing off against one on his own, use the MIDDLE ATTACK attack to wear down their health. This fight should prove no real test. Onto the next section. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 8 : MIKADO BUILDINGS - GARDENS =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : Three Masked Soldiers, Two Guard Dogs (first part) Four Masked Soldiers, Megetsu The Air Carrier crash lands in the gardens, and security is alerted. You have to get by a couple of enemies before you are confronted by Megetsu, who is the next Boss in the game. As you can guess I'm sure, this section will not be too easy. The fight area is pretty big here, with only a few trees here and there to get in the way. You should have lots of room to move about, and the chances of you getting cornered are quite slim. Against the first set of soldiers use the same strategy throuout, MIDDLE and JUMP ATTACKS work wonders. Against the Dogs, use LOW ATTACKS. After you defeat this lot, Mugetsu will arrive with some back-up. In the fight, you only have to beat Mugetsu, so concentrate on him unless the soldiers are whooping your ass really bad. Here are strategies with all three characters SION If you have the TORPEDO KICK, use it here. If not, any special attck will do. Mugetsu is like a super-strong version of the Masked Soldiers. He is very quick abd will block a lot. SO what you do, is block a lot too, then when he finishes his attack, hit him with your special move. Keep doing this and he will fall. The others, Volt and Kou, should keep the other soldiers away from you, so just concentrate on Mugetsu. Don't bother with the other soldiers. VOLT Use the block a lot, because Volt is quite slow. Use any special attack you have in your arsenal, and maybe throw a HIGH ATTACK in there now and again as well. When he is finished attacking, and you have successfully blocked it, then just go at him with a Special Attack. KOU His Special Attack, The HEEL SMASH is good for here, as is his JUMP ATTACK, it can hit many enemies. Just keep the guard up, and catch Mugetsu off-guard. Your spped here will be a great advantage. And eventually Mugetsu will be defeated, but you'll see him again, don't worry. It's on to the next section now as you delve deeper in to the Mikado Building. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 9 : MIKADO BUILDING - CRYSTAL DOME =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : Duaragon, Kaldea in Panther form (Boss Fight) There are two places to fight here, the lower section, which is nice and large or the upper section, which you reach via a staircase, and is quite small. Stay in the lower part would be my advice. If you get cornered under the stairs your screwed to say the least. You only need to defeat Dauragon to win the fight but you get extra Bouncer Points for beating the Panther too. It will be hard to beat both, but it's up to you. This fight is quite hard, because Dauragons attacks really hurt. That's why you have to BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK! He does a big spinning kick, that will really hurt if it catches you, but it takes a long time for him to get back his composure after that attack, so nip in and give him a Special Attack with your respective character. Just keep blocking and using Special Attacks and soon Duaragon will be beaten, for now at least. If you want to beat the Panther too, block her attacks and use LOW ATTACKS to the best effect. After the fight you have to choose a character, which will affect how the next section plays out, but just stick with the same character you have been using for the whole game so far to do the next section with. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ In the following sections of the Walkthrough, you can only control one person on their own. You will have to fight on your own, do everything on your own until such a time in the game where you are re-united with your comrades. So here, it is even more vital than ever that you pick the character you have been using throughout the whole game. It will help you through the combat side of things, and will also help you get the best from the story-line. I have written the walkthrough for the three characters characters separately so just skip down and find the section you are looking for. I'll do Sion first then Volt and Kou will be last. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 10(a) : MIKADO BUILDING - 65F STOREROOM - SION ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : Four Masked Soldiers, Two Security Guards All the characters are split up now and you can only control one at the moment. If you chose Sion, your on the 65th floor of the Mikado Building and you have to fight your way through. You wak up in a little room. Once you exit, you are attacked by a pair of Security Guards. Just use HIGH and JUMP ATTACKS for the quickest end to the fight. Now watch the short cut-scene, and Sion will arrive in a room with two doors on the left hand side. Go in either one, it doesn't matter, and you will have to fight four Masked Soldiers if you run down the hall. If you go in the door that is opposite you will come out in the Meeting Room area. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 10(b) : MIKADO BUILIDING - 65F MEETING ROOM - SION ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : 1 Commander, 1 P-101 You will first be in a room with no enemies. It's a long room with paintings on one side, and as there are no enemies, just run through to the other side and go in the door. You'll come out in another long hall. If you run down it, you will encounter 4 Masked Soldiers. If you go in the door, You will reach the Meeting Room at last. In here you will have to fight a Commander, just a chief who has more life, and a P-101, a funny little robot. For the Commander, just use MIDDLE and HIGH ATTACKS to finish him off quickly. As for the P-101, LOW ATTACKS are pretty much the only thing that will work on him because he is so small. After you win the fight, save the Game, then exit the room via the way you did not come in. You'll come out in a room full of desks, so exit this room also, again, via the way you didn't come in. Now you will be in another small hall with a door next to the double doors you just came out of. So go in here, and were on to the next section. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 10(c) : MIKADO BUILIDING - 66F HALL - SION ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : Four Security Guards, 2 P-101 Robots Once you come out on the next floor, 66F, go in through the double door that is next to the door you just came of. Your in a room now with blue light, so run over to the other set of doors in the far corner. You will come out in a long curved hall with benches on the left hand side. In here, you will have to fight all the enemies listed above. Use the same strategies as said above, and if you are cornered then use a JUMP ATTACK of a Special Attack. Now you can save again, and you'll see a short cutscene where Sion will see the Black Panther that you fought earlier. Now once this is done, you will run for- ward into a Laboratory. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 10(d) : MIKADO BUILDIDNG - 66F LAB - SION ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : One Masked Soldier, One Elite Maksed Soldier. Kaldea (In Panther form) When you enter, go straight away to the computer pannel. Here, look at anything you feel like, but to make the game move on, look to "BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING BIONOID EXPERIMENT" to see a scene about Kaldea, or the Panther. Then look at "PROJECT A2" to see a scene about Dominique. After you watch the thing about Dominique, you will be attacked by the Masked Soldier and the Elite Masked Soldier. They are both the same, but the Elite has a bit more health than the other one. You know how to kill these easily so just beat the pair and move on. Once you leave the Lab, you will come out in to a hallway that leads up to an office. Here you will encounter another Boss, which is the Black Panther again. To fight the Panther, all you can really do is BLOCK, and use LOW ATTACKS for the best results. Once you win the fight, Sion will go in to the office where he will see Volt and Kou again. Now it's on to the walkthrough with Volt. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 11(a) : MIKADO BUILDING - SURGERY AREA - VOLT ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : 5 Masked Soldiers (total), Two P-101's You start off in a small area on a catwalk. There are two small trun offs on either side. In this area, you will be assaulted by two Masked Soldiers, which you will easily defeat. Now in the door to your right. You will come out in to a room that is small enough to fight in, roughly shaped like a rectangle. In here you will have a much tougher fight than before, three Masked Soldiers and two P-101's, five enemies in total. The best thing to do here is use Volts JUMP ATTACK, because it can hit multiple enemies, and also use the LOW ATTACK on the P-101's. Now once they are taken care of it's on to Volts next and final part of the Mikado Building. +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 11(b) : MIKADO BUILDING - ROBOT CONSTRUCTION - VOLT ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies - 7 Masked Soldiers (some Elite) The last task for volt is a big fight against seven, yes, seven enemies on a little platform. Your outnumbered seven to one here so attack that hit multiple targets are the dish of the day. You will start off on a catwalk, that will lead on to a much bigger platform, so before you do anything else, move onto the platform. Here, use a combination of JUMP ATTACKS, and Special Attacks to get rid of the opposition. The JUMP ATTACK works very well because it will hit many enemies at once, and will get you combos on Bouncer Points. Once this fight is over your little solo run with Volt is over, and Volt will join up with the rest of the team. Now on to Kou... ++=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+==+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ SECTION 12(a) : MIKADO BUILDING - 9F LOCKER ROOM - KOU ONLY +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Enemies : One Masked Soldier You will awaken is a small room, full of lockers or something. This room is a nice easy start off to Kou's run on his own, you just have to fight one single Masked Soldier. I'm sure you can handle him on your own, so I won't insult your intelligence by telling you how to win. Just beat up the poor cahp and move on to the next section. =+=+=+=+==+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 12(b) : MIKADO BUILDING - 9F HALL - KOU ONLY =+=+=+=+==+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : None if you pose properly Seven Masked Soldiers, three Elite Masked Soldiers, One P-101 This section is very fun and unique. You don't control Kou apart from when you have to pose, and when (and if) you have to fight. And what is posing you may ask? Well, Kou is now pretending to be A Masked Soldier. He is wearing the nice uniform and everything. These soldiers have some weird form of communication which entails striking a certain pose, which in turn means something. What Kou has to do is mimic this behaviour. If he does it right, he can pass. If he does it wrong, he has to fight. The aim here is to get through fight free. If you do have to fight you will be severely outnumbered and it will be a struggle for you. The poses are as follows. TRIANGLE - Old Man in Thought SQUARE - Unparalleled Friendship CIRCLE - A Lady's Temptation X - Lonely Warrior You can see all this information by just pressing the start button. Through the level you just watch Kou walk around, and only have to act when he approaches a different soldier. The first three Guards you will meet will strike a random pose, but it will not be the pose made by the "X" button. Memorize all the poses and it will hepl a lot. All you have to do for the first three is match their pose. Simple. If you mess up you will have to fight three Masked Soldiers. Next up you will come accross another Guard, and again you will have to match his poses. He will do multiple poses, so be quick, and once again, the "X" button will not be used, unless you want to fight. If you mess up here you have to fight the Guard, then meet another Guard who requires you to do the "X" pose to let you pass. Now you will see a Guard who is going through his poses so fast you won't be able to keep up. He is just doing the same as the others though, and not using the "X" pose. So don't use it either. He always either starts with the "SQUARE" or "CIRCLE" pose, it's random as to which. All you have to do to pass is copy the pos he starts off with. If yu do it wrong you will have to fight a group of the Masked Soldiers. Now you will come up against Elite MAsked Soldiers. For the first one, he wants you to pick a pose. Just pick anything except the "X" pose to pass. Now you will come up against two Elites. Each strikes a pose. You just have to mimic the two in order to pass. Again, the "X" pose won't be used. If you don't do it right you will have to fight a load of Elites along with a P-101, which you do not want, do you? Now Kou will be reunited, somewhat painfully, with Volt and Sion. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 13 : MIKADO BUILDING - EXECUTIVE OFFICE =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : Four Masked Soldiers (2 Elite), Megetsu. The fight area is nice and big here and the best place to contain the fight is right in the centre of the room where you have lots of space. In this fight you just want to concentrate on Megetsu, and don't bother with the accompanying soldiers. And, as with earlier fights, once Mugetsu is gone, the fight is over, defeat of the others is not necessary. Your two other partners will take care of the others. The Strategies for each character are as follows. SION Mugetsu is the same as earlier, so the same tactics still work. Block, then use any Special Attck you have at all. The TORNADO UPPERCUT is brilliant for this fight. Ignore the Masked Soldiers, your partners will tak care of them. VOLT Use the SHOULDER UPPERCUT, and HIGH ATTACKS here, and keep your guard up. Since you are slow, you will be more vulnerable to attacks from Mugetsu. After he has attacked, and is recovering, hit him with all you have. Again, don't worry with the other soldiers. KOU Any Special Attack from him is good, his JUMP ATTACK is also good if you are cornered or surrounded in any way at all. Just keep going for Mugetsu and only go for one of the soldiers if they are about to kill you or something. Then just clear them away with a JUMP ATTACK. Now, once the fight is over, you are re-united with Dominique, you finally have her back. You get in an elevator, and you have to chose a character to bring her to safety, through a tough series of battles, mostly with droids. Dominique would prefer Sion to guide her, but just chose the character that you have been using the whole time. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+ SECTION 14 : ROCKET TOWER =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+ Enemies : Eight LD-15, One P-101, Nine MC-07, One Security Guard, One Security Chief. (20 enemies in total) In this section you pick a character to bring Dominique through the many walk- ways and platforms of the Rocket Tower. She can be attacked by enemies and has a life bar, and if she dies it's game over I'm afraid. So what you want to do here is either just run all the way through the whole section, only fighting if you definately have to, or if you want to fight, make sure that Dominique is never left there to be beaten up by an enemy. Always keep yourself in between her and the enemy you fight. In the first area, you have to fight one P-101, so just use LOW ATTACKS on him, and a new type of robot you won't have encountered before, a LD-15. There are two of these. They are quite big and do big damage by hitting you with their clawed arms. They aren't hard to beat though, and a stream of MEDIUM ATTACKS can polish one off nicely. All of their attacks can be either blocked or you can stop them by hitting the robot. Not too hard. After those three are beaten, go down the staircase to another level. Here you have to fight another LD-15, and another new type of droid, a MC-07. The MC-07 is quite like the LD-15, but a lot smaller. Use the same type of attacks for the both, MEDIUM ATTACKS all the way. Once the rorbots are beaten, go up the stairway to the left. On this platform beat the MC-07 and go down the next set of stairs. Down here, there is an LD-15 guarding another stairway, so take him out too. Now in the next area as soon as you come off the stairs you'll be attacked by a Security Guard. He's on his own, so just beat him easily. Now you can go one of two ways. Straight on from the stairs is a dead end that has two MC-07s waiting for you. Go down here for the Bouncer Points only. The other way is down from the staircase you enetered by. You will be assaulted by a Security Chief here. Once you beat him take the staircase down to the next area. In this area, there are a pair of walkways side by side, both leading to the same place. There is a LD-15 in the way though, so take him out, and go up one of the walk ways. Doesn't matter which. You come out on a platform that has two MC-07 and one LD-15 on. Beat the pair using MEDIUM ATTACKS, and now you'll see another pair of walk ways. These paths lead to another paltform, but this one has one LD-15 and one MC-07's. Beat them, and behind them is the stairway that will bring you down to the ultimate section. The last section is a big platform with a big round thing in the centre. Head around to the left hand side, you will have to take out an MC-07 on the way and hop on the lift to the end of this part of the game. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 14 : RCOKET TOWER, UNDERGROUND =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : PD-4 Once you reach the bottom of the tower on the lift, Dominique and the person that you chose to protect her will be brought back together with the other guys who took a different route. Watch a little cutscene, and PD-4 will appear, the top of the line enforcement model at the Mikado Corp. This guy is hella tough. He is very very very fast. He has a couple of attacks to watch out for, the most notable one is a series of kicks which he executes extremely quickly. It can be blocked though, and blocking is still effective even if he hits you with the first kick. His right arm also turns into a big long extended arm, which is very powerful and has an extremely long range. Here are some tips for each character. SION Hopefully, you will have the TORNADO UPPERCUT by now, which will do lots of damage to PD-4. Block all his kicks if you can, and watch out for the arm. If you don;t have the TORNADO UPPERCUT, and of the other Special Attacks you have will come in very handy indeed. VOLT Use any Special Attacks you have, and the JUMP ATTACKS works well to because it will knock him over if you do it right. You can do lots of damage to PD-4 when he is getting up from an attack. Try to catch him off-guard, and BLOCK a lot. KOU Any Special Attack will do, the CIRCULAR UPPERCUT in particular would be really useful. Block the kick move, and try to dodge the arm. Also try to use a quick series of regular attacks which might catch PD-4 off-guard. BLOCKS lots. Once the fight is over, watch the cutscene, this one is really cool. It also contains a major part of the story, but I won't ruin it for you. But you have beaten that section, now it's on to the next. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 15 : ROCKET TOWER - DECK +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+ Two LD-15's, Three LD-X1's, Echidna This area is split in two, both sections have big fights with big enemies, and one boss fight, Echidna, for the last time. The fight areas are large, so no problems there. In the first fight, you have to take on two LD-15's, and new bad boys the LD-X1, a black version of the LD-15. It has more health, power and defence, so it's a lot harder than the LD-15. Saying that though, you can use all the same type of attacks and strategies for the pair. The LD-X1's attacks can all be stopped just like the LD-15, so use this to your advantage. A combo of MEDIUM ATTACKS will do lots of damage. Once the trio is gone Echidna will appear with two minions, a pair of LD-X1's. A tougher fight than the last, yes, but nothing we can't handle. It doesn't matter which character you are using, the strategy is the same. Just keep attacking. Only concentrate on attacking Echidna. You partners will take care of the robots. Block her attacks. Then hit her with a combo of any attacks you want. Don't bother with the droids unless they corner you or something like that. Watch the cutscene afterwards and you will fly off to catch up with the Galeos. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+= SECTION 16 : AIR CARRIER =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+= Enemies : Mugetsu (un-masked) You all get on the Air Carrier, destination : The Galeos. Here you have to pick one character one character to fly the craft, while the other two fight for the final time against Mugetsu. Pick your least favourite or weakest character to fly the Carrier. The area in which you fight is quite small, so be careful. Mugetsu has one big new attack. He turns himself into a human missile and flies across the Carrier, drilling into anything in his path. The attack hurts a fair bit but it can be blocked. Here are tips for each character. SION Blocking is so important. Mugetsu will throw out an endless stream of attacks, so block all these, and then when he is rcovering, hit him with all you got. KOU Much the same as Sion, although Kou's extra bit of speed will come in handy. Use as many Special Attacks as you can and knock Mugetsu to the ground as much as you can for breathing space. BLOCK lots too. VOLT Blocking is even more important with Volt than the other two. Because Volt is so slow, you won't be able to get as many attacks in on Mugetsu, so he will get a few more attacks in on you. Use you Special Attacks and HIGH ATTACKS as much as you can. And also, BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK. After you defeat Mugetsu, you land on the Galeos. Mugetsu also has a slight bit of misfortune, watch the cutscene to find out. It's onto the next, and second last section from here. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 17 : GALEOS - PASSAGEWAY =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : Kaldea (panther form) Your on your way to the control room, when Kaldea rudely interrupts you. She is in Panther form, and she has a few new tricks up her sleeve. The fight area is like a rectaungle, but there is plenty of room. The strategy is similar for all characters, go with LOW ATTACKS while Kaldea is a Panther, if she turns into a human again, use Special Attacks and HIGH ATTACK as well. This fight is not hard. The stroy can change around a bit here, if you used Sion for going through the Mikado building, Kaldea will die after this fight. If you used Kou or Volt, she will not die. Now we are on to the last section of the game, the last showdown with Dauragon. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+=+= SECTION 18 : GALEOS - CONTROL ROOM =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+=+= Enemies : Dauragon(coat on), Dauragon(coat off), Dauragon(topless) This is it, the big one, the last battle. The Galeos Control room is quite big to fight in, with not many obstacles. Dominique is tied to the seat of the main control panel in the centre of the room, and that is the biggest thing in the way. There is plenty of space one either side of the control panel. The first time you play the game, you will only have to face two of the three Dauragon's, and when you play the extra game for the first time it's the same, but your second time through the extra game you have to fight him three times. And your health doesn't recover between each fight either. So it's a very tough fight I'm afraid. And as well, the Trinity Attack won't work here. The first fight with Dauragon is much the same as the one you fought in the Crystal Dome, but his hand isn't behind his back now. He also attacks faster now, and he uses the HURRICANE KICK and the SHOULDER UPPERCUT a lot. The second fight with Dauragon sees him remove his coat to get down to business and try and kick your ass. He now has an uppercut that is unblocckable. In some cases it passes right through you, but this is a glitch I think. When he does the move, You'll see purple fire, so get ready to be pummeled. The third fight with Dauragon is the toughest because he is getting tougher as we go, and because you don't receover health between fights. You have to get through the first two fights and have _at least_ Half a bar of health left to fight with. Here are some tips for each character. SION Using the block button well is the key to success. Don;t block everything to save your Defence rating, but block most of the attacks he throws at you. The trick is to try and get Dauragon to target your partners. If he is targeting you, just back away until he attacks someone else, Then go in with HIGH ATTACKS and Special Attacks when his back is turned to you. If your partners die, block all his attacks, and follow up on him with a Special Attack while he recovers. VOLT The SHOULDER UPPERCUT works well. Blocking well is the key again. Don't block everything, but most attacks. Don't try to pull of any throws either because if they fail you are left wide open to attacks.Try to get him to target the others again. Use strategies similar to Sion, and hit him with yor hardest attacks. KOU If you have the CIRCULAR UPPERCUT, you can really kick some ass. It will throw Dauragon up in the air, and then when he is falling hit him with another one, and Dauragon will fly back into the air, so you can juggle him and hit him with a lot of attacks and damage. Block well again, and keep juggling him. Try to get him to target other characters as well. Eventaully, Dauragon should fall. WELL DONE, YOU BEAT THE GAME! I won't spoil the end for you though.
