1. Introduction
  Well for those of you VF veterans, this is a VF unlike any VF made. No
more button mashing fighters, Virtua Fighter 4 actually takes some skill
to pull off these tasks. No more floating jumps, but just awesome all
out gameplay. You have to have precise timing and the right button
combination to pull off a devastating move, and these moves are quite
fancy. Having played this game and in the practice modes, there seems to
be an endless number of moves you can do, i can safely say that there is
at least 10,000 moves or more in VF4. If you find yourself having
trouble simply try your moves on the practice mode, commands section.
You'll get the hang of it after a while. So without further ado, here is
the character FAQ of Sarah Bryant.


2. Background of Sarah Bryant
Sarah Bryant
Country of Origin: USA
Sex: Female
Blood Type: AB
Job: College Student
Hobby: Sky Diving
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 121 lbs.
Bust/Waist/Hips: 35/22/35
Fighting Style: Jeet Kune Do
Past VF Games: VF, VF2, VF3
Relations in VF4: Jacky Bryant (brother), Vanessa Lewis (???)
Stage in VF4: What seems to be a resemblence of Rome, fighters fight on
a slab of stone surrounded by stone gaurd railings, that can be broken
when a character is slammed into it, lightning strikes statues and
stractures as you fight

  After regaining her memory and returning home to a normal life, Sarah
still had lingering doubts. Although her brainwashing had been
incomplete, her desire to defeat Jacky had been overwhelming. Was there
some part of her, then, that also wanted to fight her brother? Before
long she received a call from her brother informing her that he planned
to enter the Fourth Tournament. Hoping to regain her former life back
completely, Sarah entered the tournament as well, determined to defeat
her brother and put the past behind her.

  Her brother, Jacky, had no means in entering the Tournament in the
first place, He wanted to continue his life as a Indy Race Car Driver.
After a series of attacks on his crew, he was forced to enter the Fourth
World Tournament, so that these attacks will stop, thus calling his
sister stating he was going to join.

  A new face has appeared in the 4th World Fighting Tournament, that of
Vanessa Lewis. Vanessa got word that J6 (Judgment 6) was going after a
woman named Sarah Bryant and entered the Tournament to protect her from
harm. Vanessa was previously raised in J6 and knows what they are
capable of doing harm.

J6's intentions were that to, take Sarah Bryant and transform her into a
new, complete, form of Dural...

  Sarah is a student of Jeet Kune Do, she fights with quickness but not
a lot of power and relies on swift movement in taking down her opponent
with punishing kicks, her most devastating stance is the flamingo,
capable of pulling off numerous of attack and throws. Sarah Bryant is
suitable for begineers in VF4.

4. Fighting With and Against Sarah Bryant
 As stated earlier, Sarah is known for her lightning fast kicks and
ability to pull off alot of combos with that talent. She is good against
slow fights that may use throws alot or are left in the open, key thing
- don't hesitate while playing as Sarah. Try to be a good fighter (or
cheap in this case) by never leaving the opponent open for an attack, in
other words, stay of their ass. If you want to pull off a move such as
the Gatling Kick Beat, i suggest you stagger the foe for to give you
enough time to set up the attack.

 Guard her combos when you can, after she is done with her sequence
attack with your own combos or attacks. Mid and low range reversals work
well to stop her. Also, alot of power would help out as well, throws are
a must while facing this brutal fighter. If you fight against another
human opponent, it may take them time to setup devastating attacks, and
thats when you can attack, not leave her open. I found myself getting
frustrated because i wanted to use the Gatling Kick Beat, but i left
myself open too long to input the command.

-Fighters to watch out for as Sarah-
Aoi Umenokouji: vast areas in reversals and grab n' snap moves

Jeffery McWild: blocks sometimes and then deals alot of damage

Shun Di: small and may miss some high kicks

Jacky Bryant: swift kicks and punishing blows

Akira Yuki: CHEAP! blocks most of the time while pulling off combos,
once you are done he deals some damage and keeps on hitting you while


5. Secrets
Like i have said earlier the are a lot of secrets in VF4 to unlock for
each character, whether it being a costume or different accessories such
as, sunglasses or fighting head gear....etc. I will update frequently
when i know all the secrets to unlock certain things for each character,
but here is what i know you can unlock for Sarah so far:

-Play Sarah as a VF1 Polygon Model-
How to obtain this: Use Sarah in Kumite Mode and achieve the ranking of
Beginner. To select the VF1 Model in character select highlight Sarah
and press SELECT to have the statlog window pop up. And hold down P+K to
select Sarah as a VF1 Model

You can have alternate backgrounds for the Select Screen (with the
rippling water). To select this option go to Options->Settings->Game.

wins item is Bunny Ears. However, if you have an item equipped and lose
to a fight to another Wolf of the same level, you'll lose that item.

-Disgrace Items-
 If you constantly lose in Kumite Mode you'll be rewarded or
dewarded....if you must with a disgrace item, this could range to a
possibility of things such as goofy masks and so on, you'll lose that
item once you win a match.

-Different Costumes-
 For any character in the game, while choosing a character, simply press
the START button and toggle between the characters 2 existing costume

Kumite Mode, you can change their color codes on the pre-fabricated
costumes. To change the colors, simply go to Date File->Edit File and
from there you choose one of your characters used in Kumite Mode and
then change their look and appaerence. Same applies to accessories.
