This is the Unlisted Moves and SC enhancements FAQ guide.  This has been written
for the people who want to know secret moves for certain characters. This FAQ
contains attacks that aren't listed in the in-game move list. Although it's very
brief, it contains just the necessary stuff that you need to know. If there are
any errors or things I need to change, please e-mail me at address above.  I'd
also like to hear some feedback or recommendations on what to add to my FAQ in
the future. Enjoy!

P.S. If I'm missing any information in this FAQ, please let me know as well!

-Buffer= The act of entering the command for a move during the
of another move.
-Wake-up= The art of pressuring a downed opponent
-Mix-up= A simple series of attacks, which is designed to keep your
opponent guessing.
-Whiff= A failed or missed strike.
-Tracking= A move's ability to stay locked on target.
-Frames= Soul Calibur 2 runs at 60-frames a second. Frames express the
speed of all of animations.
-Counter Hit= Interrupting an enemy's attack with your own attack. CH's
inflict more damage and produce added effects like knock-back ability
-Natural Combo= A canned (or guaranteed) string that combos on normal
counter hit. (Thanks to zigmover21 for definition)
-Clean hit= When an attack hits at very close range.
-Shallow hit= When an attack hits from mid to far range.
-Post Guard Impact= An unsuccessful, missed GI.

-Instant Full Crouch (iFC)= A special technique that'll allow you to
access the FC mode by pressing 2G mainly during a G-cancel or right
after you're attack has been GI'd.

-You can only AC after any time you've been hit while in the air.
-DOS: The stun that'll cause your enemy hunch over and then slowly fall
to the ground. It has many good follow-ups, but there's one
disadvantage. DOS's can be escaped by holding G and then inputting five
directional inputs.
-Soul Charge properties: Lvl 1 can GB certain attacks. Lvl 2 can GB
certain attacks and will make all attacks more damaging. Lvl 3 can GB
certain moves, SCUB very few moves, make all attacks more damaging, and
cause all moves to CH.
-After you GI your opponent, you have the advantage in attacking them
first, but they can still reverse GI your attack. When you are the one
being GI'ed, you cannot immediately block the incoming attack, but can
still reverse GI.
-8-Way-Run= There are two different ways to perform an 8WR. You can
hold the direction you want to run or double-tap the direction. Both
have the same animations, but holding it is better suited for the
actual movement of running in the direction, while double-tapping will
allow you to both run around faster and execute 8WR attacks much faster
(which adds to the amount of combos you can do).
-SCUB's cannot be blocked, but they can still be GI'ed.

Universal Hidden Moves (for most characters)
-Wall Jump A
-Wall Jump B
-Wall Jump K

Every character has these hidden moves, but I might point out the unique ones
for certain characters.
