Secret Tekken 3 Tekkniques FAQ description: This FAQ was compiled to gather 
together miscellanious Tekken 3 tips, tricks, secrets, juggles, overlooked moves 
and anything else I feel like putting in =P~ BTW the information in this FAQ is 
verified on the japanese version of Tekken 3 for the Playstation system. 99.9%(I 
doubt there's a difference but just in case) of the stuff in here should work on 
non-japanese Playstation versions of the game. The ARCADE version of Tekken 3 
that is generally found in the US has several differences(not TOO drastic but 
there are differences in certain moves) compared to the more advanced/balanced 
home version. Most arcades in the US have version A or B(to be honest I'm not 
sure what version the US has) of Tekken 3... Tekken 3 for the Playstation is 
Version D I'm told.

~I might add some sections on Tekken Force and Ball Mode.
~Oops, some Bosco sections that are not quite ready for public consumption :) 
Get ready for the next update when I will ?^?@!?^@$?^# with Bosco!

v0.1 (10/02/99)

Conventions and Notations
This section should be better in the future but here's the notations and 
coventions I use and how they work. For an imaginary example...

(ws)3+4~1(bk-ch); f+1,1; 2,2

Hmmmm okay that in english(kinda) would be a while standing(ws) up from a crouch 
press Left kick(3) and Right kick(4) at the same time(+), immediatly 
INTERUPTED(~) by a Left Punch(1) that hits an opponent in the back(bk) on a NON 
counter hit(MINUS ch)... this is one string(canned), this is now followed up by 
a forward plus left punch(1), left punch(1) STRING(NOTE the semi-colons ";" ) 
that is then followed up by a right punch(2), right punch(2) STRING(NOTE that 
commas "," separate button presses WITHIN strings and semi-colons separate 

Fine, now here's most of the little abbreviations and conditions used in this 

f forard
b back 
d down
u up
1 left punch
2 right punch
3 left kick
4 right kick
+ "AND"
, just separates button presses clearly
- this means the timing on this move CAN be delayed. If I list a juggle with 
  this that means that I DO want you to delay.
~ this means I want these buttons to be pressed very close to each other. 
  Other times it just means that the second button press cancels the other 
  move into another one. This can be a problem with Hei's f+2~1.
; This separates STRINGS(errr generally). This generally means you go back to 
  normal standing stance(or whatever the move recovers in). In most other FAQs 
  people separate "strings" with a comma(,) followed by a space. I'm a 
  rebel... Also I will use this IN STRINGS to separate COMPLEX STRINGS... such 
  as Multithrows.
_ "OR" I will surround the options with ()
* This just means that there is something of note here. If I put it in a 
  juggle I generally mean that this attack misses the jugglee... generally.
# Continue holding... I haven't worked out myself exactly how I want this to 
  describe controller motions. What I try to use this for is to explain a 
  continued holding of a direction or button and then a bit later press the 
  next command in the sequence. It IS different then a capitalized direction.
(ch) counter hit
(sc) super charged... someone did the 1+2+3+4. If it's before, it's you.
(bl) blocked... you know how to do that right :)
(cr) crouched(doesn't mean full crouch)
(fc) full crouch(this means you took the tenth of a second to hold DF_D_DB)
(st) standing perfectly still... (e.g. (st)1+2+3+4 )
(bk) back, this means either you are back turned or your opponent is.
(sd) side(basically you hit the guy in the sides as opposed to the front or 
(jsd) hit IN the air on the side(eh... I just want to make things clear at 
      times :D This usually resluts in Flip Juggles)
(ho) half over(this means they ARE flipping over but you hit them before they 
     could all the way. This is an important distinction.)
(fo) flippED over, they are FULLY flipped over. (this applies to juggles that 
     hit people in the side mostly). They cannot Tech Roll now =)
"USR" Unblockable Shoulder Ram: f,f from far away. You need to run for awhile.
"STK" Stun Kick: JUMP(UB_U_UF) then at the peak press 3.
"GRD" Ground Dive: f,f+1+2(other ways) from the floor(face up, feet towards).

One thing that should be understood as well is that anything AFTER the commas(or 
BEFORE the button commands) are conditions that your character should be in, 
anything AFTER the button presses are the conditions your opponent should be in. 
For instance the (bk) condition means that someone has their back facing the 
other character. Look at this Ling move:


What move is that? That's her "Peg Leg" move(she hops towards the opponent on 
one leg and kicks with the other), as called in some FAQs. Now what about...


That's just her "Racoon Kick"(she swings her leg around and ends up back turned) 
done into someone's back(Mistrust time!).  How bout...


????... That's just her Peg Leg done into someone's back :) Nothing special, 
just to serve a point....

** Life(Hit Points) **********************************************************

People tend to think that the numbers you get in Pmode are percents... they are 
not. They are more, actually exactly, like hit points. So don't do a "100" 
damage combo in PMode and think that it will kill when you play normally. 

Here's the # of hit points you have in each mode of Tekken 3.

Arcade Mode: 130
Arcade Mode VS: 140
VS Mode: +/-10%=+/-15
 70% =  95 
 80% = 110 
 90% = 125 
100% = 140
110% = 155
120% = 170
130% = 185
140% = 200
Team Battle Mode: 170
Time Attack Mode: 130
Survival Mode: 140
Tekken Ball Mode: 130
Tekken Force Mode: 130
Practice Mode: Infinite =b~

As you can see for VS Mode the percents change the # of hit points by 15 points 
ever time you change the percentage.

** Low Parry Animations ******************************************************

Low Parries throw aside low and special mid kicks and punches. In this section 
I'll just list as best I can the different animations you can get for low moves 
that you wouldn't expect(What do you get for parrying a Slide Kick?) or don't 
know about(What parry do you get for low parrying Gunjack's (fc)df+1+2?). If I 
don't list something then it will be the parry animation of the button you 
pressed(1,2,3,4). Lei, Julia, King, Nina, Bryan, Law, Yoshi, Ling and Hwoarang 
have Low Parries(Bosco's is not a true low parry, but even he will not Low 
"Parry" a Type 0 move. Neither will Anna's b+4 react to a Type 0) and I have not 
tested all low moves on all characters by any stretch... I just pick a low 
parrier and then test. It was by luck I found Lei low parries Paul's Sweep 
differently so there may very well be other characters who parry different moves 
differently(hmmm I haven't tested any Ten Strings either... next update)....

These numbers tell you what type the parries are...
0 Not Parriable
1 Left Punch
2 Right Punch
3 Left Kick
4 Right Kick
5 Punch Sweep
6 Hell Sweep
7 Slide Kick
8 Big Sweep

** Right Punch Ground Stun Recover *******************************************

A technique from the olden days of Tekken 2 still exists in Tekken 3. It is not 
often mentioned, not mentioned often enough, the Right Punch ground stun 

In Tekken 2 this served a very useful purpose. Whenever you were knocked down 
you could press RP to gain control of your character quicker thereby having a 
better chance to avoid followup ground hit juggle damage(BTW, many of the 
"guaranteed" juggles+ground hits in T2 PMode were not. Gotta double check those 
juggs in Versus Mode). In Tekken 3 you have techrolls and this button seems to 
do nothing much anymore when on the ground... except when you have just been 
thrown(actually it does have an effect on CERTAIN knockdowns, but I'm not 
certain on these yet).

There are several throws in the game which appear to have damaging and useful 
followups... however many can be escaped by using this button to get your 
character to recover quicker(tap RP a few times and whatever else you want to 
do... if you want to roll back tap RP while holding back, if you want to do a 
standing kick press RP and RK).

Here are only a few examples of this ground recovery....

King: db,f+2; db+1+3  You can escape the G-Throw...
Hei: 2+4; d+4  You can escape the stomp...
Paul: 1+3; d+2  You can escape the punch...

This works for most every throw... yet some throws still have big guaranteed 
hits however if you know this little piece of info you can save yourself from a 
lot of free cheapies and force your opponent to come at you with something 
quicker but weaker or mix it up more.
* Abbreviations: 
"(fbs)" Fall Back Stance: A general term for Bosco when he's falling back...
* Forgotten Tekkniques:
** H?i??chi ???na?e **********************************************************

** The Doctor Rush String ****************************************************


Let's just take the string apart...

f,f+1 This punch hits special mid and is good by itself. It's non-reversable, 
non-parriable, and he goes into fallback stance after. Also when on counter hit 
this move cause a stun animation. Bosco recovers quick enough to some EVIL 
juggles... this move is worth the risk.

4 can be delayed after, it recovers without going into fallback. Guaranteed hit 
after the f,f+1 hits if not delayed.

3 can be delayed after 4, afterwards you go into fallback. Guaranteed after the 
4 hits if not delayed.

3 can be delayed after the prior 3, does NOT go into fallback afterwards. Is NOT 
guaranteed if the prior 3 hits.

3 cannot be delayed, does not go into fallback. Guaranteed if the prior 3 hits.

2 can be put after the first 3 or the third 3. In both places is can be delayed. 
This punch, if it hits, always causes a non escapable fallback stun.

1 if the stun punch hits this punch will connect... however I usually won't do 
it since the recovery is bad and the stun punch can allow for other juggles. I 
only use it for suprise.

** F??l ?ac? St???e **********************************************************

** Spin Doctor ***************************************************************

(fbs)1+2 or


I'm not sure what to make of this move at times... it's very evasive, at 
times... if people try to attack while Bosco is doing this they may very well 
miss. In the absence of a low block this may just be what the doctor 
ordered(that was bad wasn't it? *Notti's suspicions were confirmed by the 
simultaneous groaning*). You can do this while in (fbs) and it's very useful in 
messing up an opponent's attack timing... still the chaotic ss'ing of this move 
may still let them hit you... it's still a risk.

Another motion to try is:


Which is just a Spin Doctor after a dash in(the Doc's CD). You must be holding 
Forward while pressing 2~1

Also interesting is the :


If you press 1+2 over and over you will retreat while Doctor Spinning. You're 
not invincible when doing this but it is very hard(or lucky) for your opponent 
to hit him out of this. It can be useful and fustrating to an offensive opponent 

Unfortunately you can't Spin Doctor during a SS... well not easily.  You can 


But as it says, you have to hold Back for a quarter of a sec... And since the 
Doctor SS's Left at the beginning of the Spin:


Will bring him far off course of your enemy's attack.

Oh yes, and finally, after the Spin Doctor, Bosco is in (fbs). I may go for a 
secondary Spin till they whiff a move then I do a (fbs)u.

** ?ow D??? Mov?? ************************************************************

** Ch??ge I? *****************************************************************

** ??? 20 ?????? *************************************************************

** ????h D??nk P??ri?s *******************************************************

** Doctor Multis *************************************************************

Bosco has the strangest multi "throw". It starts off normal but the rest goes 
into all sorts of manuevers for show and some damage.

1+4-1+2,(fbs) (=10) 
      ^; 2,2,1+2,(knd) (=~21)
               ^; (1_2_3_4),(fbs)
               ^; 3+4,(fbs+bk) (=~10)
               ^; 1+4 
                    ^; 2,1,3,4,(fbs) (=38)
               ^; 1+2,(fcd)
                    ^; (1_2_3_4),(fbs+bk)
                    ^; 3+4,(sc)
                         ^; 1+2, (=~50)

Doctors, ready the disection table...

1+4 - The Punch Drunk Parry... look at the section above.

1+4-1+2 - Grab move for Bosco... the multi can start if this grabs from the 
front. You can delay the 1+2 press. The escape is 1+2. You can start some back 
juggles versus the big guys with an uf+2 after this.

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2 - just a drop elbow into the enemy's back, it is an actual 
ATTACK(turn off counter hits in Pmode)... go on...

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; (1_2_3_4),(fbs) - VERY tough timing on the last button press. 
You have to tap any button I think during the rolling after the drop elbow(sorry 
I can't be more specific as I'm not sure myself. I usually just hold forward, 
mash 2, and pray ;P ). If you can nail this often and the follow up combo(look 
in the juggle section) you are a Boskonovitch God. Gigantic damage... your 
opponent should be almost, if not already, dead.

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 3+4,(fbs+bk) - this thing SUCKS. Not only is the damage 
pitiful but you go rolling past the enemy revealing a stunned Bosco with his 
back turned. Yuck. BTW if you turn on Counter Hits in PMode this move is a 
little interesting.

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 1+4 - A good spot to go for an optional juggle... flip juggles 
are so sweet and this move sets you up perfectly :)

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 1+4; 2,1,3,4,(fbs) - Here's the easy money shot. Nice damage, 
not difficult to pull off, the Doctor makes some funny and humiliating noises, 
and you're standing over the fallen enemy ready to punish them some more. What 
could be better?

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 1+2 - Hmmm, taken from Ling it's her ss'ing cartwheel. That's 
it. Move on.

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 1+2; (1_2_3_4),(fbs+bk) -  Ahh... insane timing again to pull 
this cancel off. But the only thing is... there's no reason to do so. No cool or 
useful juggles... just go for the 1+4 string instead :P

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 1+2; 3+4,(sc) - This is kinda neat. He does an insane laugh 
while running backwards then gets Super Charged. No nice guaranteed damage but 
this is a cool way to start off the 20 hit string ^_^

1+4,1+2; 2,2,1+2; 1+2; 3+4; 1+2 - Heh. Awesome damage unblockable shoulder 
ram... too bad if the enemy is the least bit intelligent they will stay on the 
ground(or roll away) and let this move pass right overhead =( The good doctor 
laughs even when this move misses... you won't be laughing when your opponent 
starts a left kick ground sweep juggle.

** L?? ?arr?/E?c?pe **********************************************************

** Indian Doctor *************************************************************

This move seemed virtually useless when I first did it... it's still pretty weak 
but this move does do something other than make you laugh. It can heal the 
Doctor. First however are the controls for this move...

3_4 accelerates the Doctor.
D puts the brakes on.
U stands the Doctor up(actually any direction other than DF_D_DB).

Okay... the faster you tap 3 or 4(tap both to go even faster) the faster you go. 
However if you go too fast it will start to hurt him... anyway... when you get 
within range of your opponent you will Teleport behind your opponent still in 
Indian Sit going the wrong way. Here's the useful part. If you are puttering 
along fast enough when you meet your opponent and teleport you will gain life :) 
The bad part, if you haven't figured it out yet, is that if you are going really 
fast you start to hurt yourself.... The most I've ever gotten is 12 HP, but 
usually 8. You can play around with it to find the best speeds by going into 
Pmode with Bosco as the CPU character. This will let you see the healing(it will 
be in negative numbers). You can get the 12 HP gain speed if you're a step away 
from your opponent... it can work but it's risky as you can be hit during the 
stance, while teleporting and while reappearing kinda easy.

*put put put...*

** Elbow Rush Warp ***********************************************************

f,f,n+2(ch); f,f; 1+2_3

This move is very similar to Yoshimitsu's. On a counter hit it will slice 
through your opponent... from there you can tap forward twice and then he will 
do a back step that will let him either a 1+2(back slam) or 3(peg leg).

If you don't do the 1+2 or 3 you can wait a moment and do a U to get the Doctor 
Explosion. A side effect of doing this is you get to hear all of the Doctor's 
feeble laugh instead of him always interupting it with his quicker laugh.

Another strange trick with this move is to get it to hit on counter hit versus a 
grounded opponent. Only True Ogre is big enough to see this on but you should 
try it :) Also, just like Yoshi's, if you do this move into someone's back on 
counter hit you'll see the Doctor immediatly reverse direction and come back in 
the wrong direction. Finally, you can combine these two into one and get this 
hit on a grounded opponent in their back.

** B???war?s Do??or **********************************************************

** Robot, I Am ***************************************************************

Being the creator of the Jacks it makes sense that he has special stuff with 
them. In battle the Doctor can use his Remote to control Jack. Here are all the 
special things I know of between the two:

f,f+2(ch) - This will cause Jack to do his f+4~1 unblockable and then have Bosco 
reverse it. Jack is unable to Chicken this... GOOD! Other interesting things 
that can be done is if you do this move into Jack's back or while he is on the 
ground(Remember this has to be a counter hit, this won't happen often) Bosco 
will stand with his hands out ready to Reverse any High or Mid hits Jack throws 
at him(Bosco is also Super Charged so he can be Counter Hit while doing this 
unfortunately). This is only the beginning :)

f,f+2~U(ch) - This is an alternate(and better) version of the above move. What 
is does versus Jack is cause him to do his 3+4 unblockable(Flying Stomp). What's 
great about it is that Bosco gets a free shot at punishing Jack from behind. 
Also if you get this on Counter Hit versus a back turned or grounded Jack, Jack 
will do nothing other than fall down stunned while Bosco wastes his time trying 
to control Jack. Not at all useful. Move on...

f,f+2~D(ch) - This is just the normal Stun that Bosco would get versus any other 
character. No real reason to do this other than you feel the back combos from 
above are a little too powerful ^_^ Also since Jack is "big" you can't uf+1 
juggle him :(

Jack uf+1+2; d,df+2 - This is Jack's Pick Up; Megaton Punch throw. But against 
Bosco, he will reverse it automatically(you don't have to press anything... 
however if you hold a direction you will mess the reversal up and Bosco'll get 
hit normally). But dammit all, Gunjack can Chicken this reversal >:( Also it 
SEEMS like Bosco can't do the normal tricks with this throw that others can(tap 
forward or back right before the Megaton Punch hits), he'll just get hit(no 
reversal)... but I'm not so sure about this since the f_b requires EXCELLENT 
timing in the first place.

** Tazer Shocker *************************************************************


This is a mimic, I suppose, of Yoshi's b,b+1. It's kind of interesting in it's 
properties(it's also slow to come out). What it does is cause your opponent to 
be shocked once about every half a second(~2 shocks a second) and at every shock 
they get damaged for 10 hit points(that's about 20 hit points a second draining 
away). During this time you can do anything to them, even go around for a back 
throw however there is an escape. That escape is to press ANY(not 3+4) button at 
a certain point inbetween the "shocks". You can also escape at the very moment 
after Bosco hits you with his b+1+2 and you will not recieve any damage from any 
shocks :) However there is one bad thing with the escape... it's not just an "I 
escaped, now let's fight." What happens is when you "escape" is that you now do 
your Super Charger... heh. During the Super Charger animation you are totally 
open and after the Super Charger animation is over you are still in trouble 
since don't forget that you can't block now and all hits on you are counter hits 
after a Super Charger... go Bosco! =D The deal is this. If Bosco hits you with 
this move(oh that's right... he's got to hit first... damn), even if you 
"escape" as soon as possible he can get huge free hits on you(think uf+1... or 
he can also get a free throw attempt... or he could go for a nasty f,f+2 if he 
times your escape. It's to Bosco's advantage to just wait for you to escape, and 
then score a stunning counter hit since you are taking damage every half 

One other tiny interesting point... if you get a Bosco versus Bosco fight and 
one of them gets hit by this move, when they do the "escape" they will do their 
GROUND super charger. They just warp to the floor and charge... very strange

     ^; (fbs)3+4 (57) Very reliable, also sets up a nice f,f+1+2 dive chop.

                     strange directions....
     ^; uf+1 (66) This one can miss sometimes, it's fickle. Sometimes he goes 
                  too far and turns around to hit the opponent(he may miss... 
                  certain characters miss a lot)... then you recover 
                  normally(facing them)... sometimes he hits them behind 
                  him(not the greatest for Bosco but at least you got the 
                  damage)... Also don't forget you can do a second low parry

** Right Kick Sacrificial Counter ********************************************

Ish Canoe? Every wonder what the exact conditions are for Hei to get that big 
ole kicking push off move? Well, there are several ways actually:

~Type 1) Have some one throw just about most any high OR MID right kick at you 
when you are doing Heihachi's Unblockable Thor's Hammer(d+1+4). Even after the 
attacking part is over he will STILL counter most all right kicks... it's still 
possible till the animation is totally over with(his hand is down but he has not 
recovered from the unblockable yet). Also if you happen to unluckily TRADE hits 
with your right kick versus Hei's unblockable he will still get his reversal... 

~Type 2) Have Heihachi be counter hit with many HIGH(I'd say about 65-75% of 
high 4's... not as reliable as I would want) right kicks or a select few 
MID(maybe 1% of mid 4's... ha) right kicks while Hei is holding d,df,f,uf,u, or 
ub(basically any direction besides direct blocking and neutral). You cannot 
trade hits at the same time and get this reversal since trade hits never count 
as counter hits(except if either Heihachi or the kicking opponent is Super 
Charged... but what if they are both Heihachis?? What happens then???? ONE of 
the Hei's will get the Kick Counter, but I have no idea how the game decides 
which one will get it. The only way this can be done is with a standing Hei 4 
versus another standing Hei 4 when they trade hits when at least one of them is 
Super Charged).

Here is a list of MID kicks(there are way too many Highs for me to list) that 
Hei can grab just by holding d,df,f,uf,u,ub WITH a counter hit:

b+3+4,u* (Weird... this move ALWAYS hits on counter hit(think about it)... 
but... check the Dr. Boskonovitch section =D )


4,4,4,4* (Heh...)

~Type 3) Have Heihachi hold d,df,f,uf,u, or ub when being hit by certain 
specific HIGH right kicks(no counter hit needed). You may also trade hits with 
this one and Hei will still give out the reversal+trade hit damage. 

Here is a list of High kicks that Hei can grab just by holding d,df,f,uf,u,ub 
W/OUT a counter hit:

4,3* (yes he grabs a left kick! But that is quickly corrected! :) This just 
in... for some reason this will not work against Hei's "Thor's Hammer"(Type 1). 

df+2,4* (Interesting... he can grab her in the middle of a "combo")
1,2,4* (If the jab is a counter he can still grab her)

f+4* (Strangely not a n+4... hmmm)

If you know of anymore email me... OK?

Damages DONE TO each character for the reversal:

Done to->Opponent|Heihachi
Type 1: ALWAYS 55|ALWAYS 50
Type 2: ALWAYS 45|Damage of kick(don't forget counter damage)+6
Type 3: ALWAYS 45|Damage of kick+6

As you can see the most reliable version of his reversal also has a crappy ratio 
of damage done vs damage received. If you want to use this move on purpose(say 
against Paul's f,f+3,4,(4_f+4_d+4) string...) use the unblockable for a good 
chance of it working... or jabs(excellent chance of 1,1,2 connecting if he 
doesn't go high, as a matter of fact you are totally safe and WILL damage 
Paul(unless the HIGH kick will kill you.... 1~F,1,2 is the safest since a 1 
comes out quicker than a f+1 and if Paul does the low kick finisher the f+1 may 
very well miss)... but the reversal looks so cool... net yourself some style 
points and go for the reversal). BTW only the unblockable reversal version will 
come out when the kick kills Hei, type 2+3 reversals won't come out at all so 
Heihachi he will still lose if he's the first to lose all his life... you still 
get the last hit tho :P

** Demon Hop *****************************************************************

This move was in Tekken 1 aswell as Tekken 2 yet most do not know of it. The 
motion for this move is: 


This is a very quick hop in with good speed. What you can do while hopping is 
press 3 or d+3 to get either the DMK or DLK... or neither and simply go for 
whatever... a throw or maybe twin pistons perhaps.... BTW the Demon Hop versions 
of of the DMK and DLK seem to come out quicker than the regular versions(IMO).

** Quicker Demon Scissors ****************************************************

This tekknique was present in Tekken 1 and 2 but it was not nessessary to 
mention it in Tekken 1 since this was the only way to do it in T1. Namco 
abbreviated the motion in T2 to 4~3(uf+4~3, as is also in T3, is the prefered 
method in T2), but the original motion actually makes the move come out quicker. 
Here's the abbreviated(the move comes out slower) motion:


And here's the original(the move comes out quicker) motion:


The move comes out quicker by a few frames(it also evades ALL low attacks from 
the very beginning, unlike it's slower brother, which only evades all low 
attacks once it's left the ground). It's hard to notice the speed difference but 
it's there.

** Always Blast Chi Palms ****************************************************

Unlike Hei's 1+2 Chi Palm that only blasts away on counter hit this verion 
always does allowing you to get the uf+4~3 follow up guaranteed. There are two 
ways here...
1) f+2,1
2) 1,2,2~1

** Sloppy Chi Palm ***********************************************************

If you do not feel you can hit the 1+2 chi palm button =P you can do the move as 
2~1. If you do the motion as b+2~1 you can get Hei to do a little grunt(his b+2 
grunt) and if you do it as f,f+2~1 you'll get another yell... this motion(2~1) 
does not work during an early SS... technically this motion should also be 
slower in coming out than the normal 1+2....

** Dash in Chi Palms *********************************************************

f,f,b+1+2 use this to get the Palms from a dash otherwise you'd get a DGF. You 
can also use it b,b+1+2 or b,B,+1+2(you can also sloppy chi palm).

** Wave Step *****************************************************************

This move gains ground quickly... perhaps even quicker than running... and all 
the while you have the ability to alternatively do CD and f,f moves. Here's the 


That's 3 waves right there... here's the basic part: f,n,d,df,f,repeat. The 
reason is after a CD you can do f,f to get f,f moves such as DGFs or throws(such 
as f~f+1+2). But Namco made it so that CDs can be done as part of the normal f,f 
dash... thereby creating a loop.

** CD/RD cancel **************************************************************

Do a CD or RD and tap u or ub then go into any standing moves. ub is better I 
think since it has the least chance of messup.

** Immediate Death Fist ******************************************************

Here ya go... df,f+2. I think this works... I may be imagining it however =) The 
way I found this was when I was playing with the Wave Step above. 

f,n,d,df,f,f,df,f+2 was what I was getting on occassion... the reason this  has 
to be the way it is is because the full motion d,df,f+2 would bring me into a CD 
instead of the RD... but I was getting the DF. Well?

BTW don't forget this is NOT a RD or CD where you can travel for a moment or two 
before pressing 2. As soon as you hit f press 2.

** Lightning and Thunder God Fist ********************************************

What this signifies I have no idea but... do a TGF and get it to connect at the 
edge of it's range(best as I can explain it, rather random actually), Heihachi 
will be consumed in electricity. It doesn't seem to matter what damage you 
get(I've gotten clean hits to do this and I've gotten it at 100%, 35 damage. 
I've also had it come out in juggles). Well whatever it does it looks cool ;) 
Hmmm maybe in Tekken 4 Hei will have a ETGF if you do the motion perfectly like 
Jin's EWGF?

** Hunting Getas *************************************************************

In Tekken 1 Hei was one of the baddest mofos, for example his uf+3,4 jump kicks 
if you blocked the first one, the second always hit. In Tekken 3 he still has it 
but it takes some skill... uf+3.. 4. The timing is exact... RIGHT before the 
uf+3 is blocked press 4. Basically you want to delay the second kick button 
PRESS(as it doesn't actually delay the kick) as long as possible so the game 
will make the first kick act like it was done alone. You can see this in Pmode 
by having the kicks hit(not blocked by) the opponent and looking at the damage. 
You see if you do the first kick by itself it will have a base damage of 25, but 
if you input the right kick right away like you would usually do, the move will 
have it's base damage changed to 17. But if you delay that second kick till the 
VERY end you will see not only will the base damage STAY at 25, you'll get the 
second kick =)

BTW before people email me about my little unblockable trick, let me tell you 
that this also works for Hwoarang, Ogre and True Ogre... enjoy!

Finally if your opponent ends up blocking both kicks, Hei has a GREAT timing 
advantage on the opponent, nothing's guaranteed but Hei has got the advantage 
which is great since Hei is damn close.

** Head Butter ***************************************************************

The motion is f~f+1+2... but you must do the f~f quickly and not pause much 
inbetween presses... don't ask me why(this also pertains to CD cancel Head Butts 
UNLESS you do the motion as f,n,d,df.. f~f+1+2 NOT f,n,d,df,f.. f+1+2 which is 
hard since this is the only time in the game it matters if you go too far with 
the CD motion and if you mess up you get a DGF) Also this throw is a techable 
throw. When someone techs from this move(any button) they always tech to their 
left(grr). If they don't tech they are rather vulnerable to ground hits such as 
d+4 stomps... but you can't watch for the tech and have stomps guaranteed at the 
same time, gotta guess.

** Head Butt Carnival ********************************************************

The motion is f,f+1+4(very dash delayable compared to f,f+1+2) and can only be 
done VS Hei, Jin, Kuma, Lei, Paul and Moku imitations. The initial throw can be 
escaped by 1+2. The opponent can challenge the head butt by hitting ANY button 
right before the head butt hits... but Hei can re-challenge by hitting ANY 
button right before the opponents counter head butt hits him.

The following are damages that HEIHACHI DOES to his enemies if 
unchallenged(meaning they DIDN'T head butt back). Charged means that SOMEONE did 
the Super Charger, 1+2+3+4, before the throw connected. Final means after the 
first head butt was challenged and if Hei gets the last one after, this is how 
much he will do: 

    Kuma   |42 |     50     | 65  
    Jin    |29 |     34     | 45
    Lei    |29 |     34     | 45   
    Paul   |29 |     34     | 45 
    Moku   |29 |     34     | 45
  Moku-Hei |29 |     34     | 30
    Hei    |29 |     34     | 30

If any head butt is "challenged" the damage to the challenger is ALWAYS 30 
damage, or if the original Hei loses he ALWAYS takes 30 damage. These head butts 
can continue till someone dies....

** Hop Kick ******************************************************************

As if Hei didn't have enough juggle starters... try u+4. You can get most WGF 
juggles out if close.

** Stunning/Knock Out Axe Kick ***********************************************

f,f+3 does nothing normally but stuns on counter, f,f,n+3 ALWAYS knocks down for 
a quick d+1 hammer or some more powerful not quite guaranteed stuff(Hell Sweeps 
or d+4 stomp).

** Delay Strings *************************************************************

Simple listing here for moves of Heihachi that are delayable(not including CD+RD 

(ws)+4-4(not HS axes)

** Foot Stomp Override *******************************************************

The foot stomp can be done two ways: 


This means that you cannot put df+4's mid kicks and d+4 tick kicks in most 
juggles and wake up games. Well actually... you can still put the tick kicks in 
by pressing db+4.

** Large Punishment **********************************************************

Hei's unblockable can hit large characters(Gun, Kuma, Togre) on the floor at 
rest =O Try WGF; d+1+4 for evilness... it can be escaped(HOLD UP till you stand 
up, then hit 4 and pray... it's VERY CLOSE... Togre can Owl Hunt too) MOST of 
the time but many do not know this.... And if they try to tech roll Hei follows 
em... unblockable tracking! =D Even tho this is escapable these characters still 
have to constantly watch out for this. You can also hit these characters with 
TGFs(and DMKs!) on the floor... nice damage ;)

** Foot Stomp Yell ***********************************************************

Do a foot stomp to a fallen opponent(hit or miss, doesn't matter) and during the 
replay hear Hei say his kick reversal scream(ISH CANOE!).

** Hell Sweeps Hit Level *****************************************************

I personally think Hei's Hell Sweeps are the weirdest moves in all of Tekken in 
how it works, nothing else in Tekken works quite like it does. 

The hit level of the FIRST HS to HIT OR BE BLOCKED is considered Special 
Mid(it's special mid since it doesn't hit ducking opps and can't be reversed by 
high/mid reversals and CAN BE parried by a low parry. This also means that this 
move cannot be guarantee-ingly evaded by low evading moves... Yoshi's STANDING 
Pogo or an uf hop for instance). What that means is that if the first sweep 
totally wiffs the second sweep gets these properties. Another property of the 
first HS to touch is if it is blocked by a high blocking opponent it will cause 
block damage(7 points of damage) signified by a spark. This spark not only 
causes damage but a small amount of stun. If the 2nd OR 3rd HS get this high 
blocked spark(cause the first HS missed) the canned follow up TGF(hit left 
punch) is GUARANTEED.

** Reverse Pervert ***********************************************************

Heihachi's b+2 is normally irreversable... however in Heihachi's f+1-b+2-1 
string his b+2 is reversable under a strange condition. If Heihachi does his 
string like this:

f+1,b+2-1 - The b+2 is not reversable. Hei has to delay the 1 as much as 
possible. But if he does it like this...

f+1,b+2,1 - The b+2 IS reversable. Strange but true.

  ^; f+1; f+1,b+2,1 (56) Basic juggle, likes to whiff on Julia.
  ^; d,df,f+2 (61) Get it early, on clean hit, or not great damage.
  ^; 2HS,2 (63) Clean+early+close.... otherwise.
  ^; 2HS,1 (56)
  ^; WGF; d+1 (56)
  ^; df+1
        ^; 2HS,1; d+1 (66) It's not techable if done correctly(TGF hits late).
        ^; f+1,b+2,1 (57) Julia... whiff!
  ^; df+2
        ^; f,f+1,b+2,1 (60-64) Jul....
        ^; 2HS,1; d+1 (70) Hard to get. Especially on smaller chars like 
                           Julia(may be impossible) and Ling. The part that 
                           seems to miss a lot is the second sweep. You need 
                           to get the first sweep in deep... but not too 
                           deep(cause that takes time) or the juggle is 
  ^; TGF (53-66) If you didn't get the WGF close the TGF will not do the best 
  ^; df+3,2,2,4 (43) Either get a WGF from far away or start the df+3 late as 

  ^; df+2; 2HS,1; d+1 (75) Doesn't that look nice :)
  ^; WGF; (bk)3_4 (80) Get that DGF in close. Get that WGF very early to get 
                       them behind you. Very nice.
  ^; Try most any other WGF juggle from above.

     ^; df+1; df+1,2 (47)
     ^; df+3,2,2,4 (48)
     ^; 4 (53) 
     ^; f+1; f+1,b+2,1 (56)
     ^; df+1; f,f+1,b+2,1 (60)

df+2 <-----don't forget they can hold Down to escape.
   ^; DGF...
   ^; WGF...
   ^; DF (54)

f,f+3(ch) <-----don't forget that this stun is escapable
        ^; Any df+2(hard), WGF ;) or df+1,2 juggles and throws will work.
        ^; 2HS,2 (66) Clean... move forward if you need it.
        ^; d+1+4 (89-104; Kuma/Panda and Gun Jack... True Ogre can Owl Hunt)
        ^; TGF (62-52) Clean blah blah.... 
        ^; df+2; f,f+2; df+1; 2HS,1; d+1 (111) Yeouch! Seafood soup! This is 
                                               of course escapable in two 
                                               spots and hard to do anyway... 
                                               but I love it still!

      ^; d+4 (45-55) 
      ^; d+1 (41)
      ^; RD+4,4 or CD,n+4,4(48) Should be close.

  ^; 2HS,1 (52)
  ^; 3HS,1; d+1 (66-68; King+)
  ^; TGF (58; Jack+)
  ^; df+3,2,2,4 (39; Jack+)

2HS,1; 1+2 (53)
   ^n+4; DF (54)

    ^; f+1,1,2 (69)
    ^; f+1,b+2 (68)
    ^; 2HS, 2 (77; Gun Jack+; techable) Sweetness =)
    ^; TGF (80; Gun Jack+; techable) Yay! A TGF!
    ^; f+1,b+2,4 (82; Gun Jack+; techable) Oh... if the kick was only a hair 

  ^; d+1 (37) In Pmode doesn't always count as a combo but it always works 
              when in the correct range.
      ^; uf+4~3 (44) Try not to take too long.
      ^; WGF (47; Jack+) Travel for a bit, not as much as you'd think 
      ^; f,f+2 (56; Jack+) Rip em up.
      ^; TGF (62; Jack+) Big uns take it.
      ^; DMK (62; Jack+) Need good timing to get it right.
           ^; 1+2 (44) Double Hadoooooooooken!
           ^; uf+3 (47) You can do the double jump kick too, but the second 
                        kick will always miss not to mention that the first 
                        kick gets weaker when you do that(unless you do the 
                        delay trick from the "Hunting Getas" section).
           ^; WGF (47)
           ^; df+1,2 (57; Gun Jack+) Practice mode silliness =)

      ^; 2,2 (37) Just thought I'd throw this in...
      ^; f+1,1-2 (36) Delay the 2. It has a habit of whiffing(stange).
      ^; f+1,2,2 (36) Blah blah.

          ^; d+1 (13-15) Easy to get... never miss.
          ^; (sc)d+1,2 (55) Really cool :)
          ^; DF (27-37) HARD to get... only if you have a good sense of when 
                        you are out of the jump kick stun.
          ^; WGF (22) TERRIBLY hard to get. Works best versus Ling and Julia 
                      since you can land the closest to them after the kick.
          ^; df+1,2 (28; Yoshi+Kuma) Truly EASY CHEESEY =)

      ^; 2; 2HS,1 (38) Awesoma powah.
      ^; f+1; f+1,b+2,1 (30) A Hei standard.
      ^; 2; f,f+1,b+2,1 (37) Nicer if you can slip in the Right Jab :)

       ^; 2HS,2 (62-68) Don't forget, they are stunned. You can CD in rather 
       ^; DF (63) Go Death Fist!
       ^; DGF (63) 63 again?
       ^; TGF (60,73) Easy... yet damaging. Silly Tekken juggle system =P
       ^; CD,n+4; f+1,b+2,1 (66) Oh very well. For those who insist on some
                                 little bit of skill to do damage =P~

       ^; DF (61-67)

          ^; df+2(jsd); TGF(fo); df+1(fcd),2
* Abbreviations: 
"DF" Death Fist: d,df,f+2
"ET" Elbow Thruster:d,df,f+1
"RD" Rolling Dash: d,df,f
"SB" Sway Back: d,db,b
* Forgotten Tekkniques:
** FC Hammer *****************************************************************

When you do Paul's hammer you have several choices... either press nothing, 2, 
4... or while doing the hammer you held down. If you hold down you'll finish the 
move in a full crouched position from which you can do any full crouched(fc) 
moves or while standing(ws) ones. For instance you can do the elbow 
smasher/uprooter... you can do a (ws)4(mid) or (fc)4(low). The FC Hammer 
actually has faster recovery than the regular Hammer. The reason I think this is 
because after a CLOSE blocked Hammer with some characters you can hit Paul with 
a standing jab(1) or almost everytime with most every character with a ducking 
jab(d+1 or db+1), but you can't do this vs an FC Hammer(not only can you block 
the duck jab, the standing one will go over your head since you are in full 
crouch). A small note now on the d+1,2 and the d+1,4,2... during BOTH follow ups 
Paul can be standing jabbed between the d+1 and the 4 or 2 if blocked and if the 
hammer actually hit you can get a ducking jab(left punch)... if on counter hit 
the Death Fist(right punch) DOES combo even tho the Pmode counter says it 
doesn't and the sweep kick elbow combo can ONLY be blocked low(not even low 
parried) then blocked mid for you to do your minor counter damage.

** Sway **********************************************************************

The Sway Back(sb) when it starts has a small(very small) period of high attack 
evasion built in(perhaps it's just the d of the d,db,b motion). Also Paul has 3 
moves he can do from the sway.

d,db,b,n+1 Bounce Hammer
d,db,b,n+2 Palm Strike
d,db,b+3-2-(1_2) Sway Sweep, Elbow Switch....

Bounce Hammer: This move can Bounce you on counter hit. Not many great juggles 
from this move. However this move is virtually identical to his normal Hammer 
except you can't go to FC after.

Palm Strike: On counter hit it will send the enemy sliding away ready for a 
Neutron Bomb(f,f+4) and me standing over them =) When it hits normally it leaves 
you and your enemy on equal terms and when blocked causes block stun and leaves 
you pretty safe(only the quickest, longest ranged standing jabs can touch you if 
you did this move really close... Kuma's f+1 comes to mind)... if dodged 
however... *sigh*.

Sway Sweep: This moves comes out a little slow and has too little range to be 
used that offensively so it should be used when someone is attacking high. If it 
counter hits you're ONLY guaranteed the elbow(if you didn't delay the elbow), 
none of it's follow ups. You should take notice that this move is the only one 
that doesn't require a neutral stick position before pressing the buttons from 
the Sway.
** PK Magic ******************************************************************

Paul has a couple PK strings. I'll list them and their properties:

n+1,4    5h+8l     Is 99% safe if blocked, good poker, and combos together. 
2,3      12h,21h   Least useful, for juggles I guess(a lil slow tho).
2,d+3    12h,8L    Most don't expect the low... but with the f+2,d+3...
f+2,3    12h~20h   Better than 2,3 I guess... combos on counter.
f+2,d+3  12h~17L   MAGIC... Unblockable low kick if punch is BLOCKED >=D

*Laughing* f+2,d+3... feel the fury of Paul! You better duck... uh-oh hop 
kick(hammer... df+1, df+4...)! If you want this move on a dash in you'll have to 
tap forward thrice, f,f,f+2,d+3... if you do f,f+2... you'll get an elbow(hits 
mid... crappy recovery if blocked). Also if the jab hits... the kick is no 
longer guaranteed, as a matter of fact you are open to attack if blocked(same as 
2,d+3)... prolly a ws(prolly a ws+2) or fc attack(no hop kicks) but some 
characters can punish more than others(Jin... Ling... HATE Ling). Has it's 
faults but unblockable damage is unblockable damage =) The key word being 
unblockable... meaning you blocked a jab(a jab!... how many times in a match 
against Paul do you block jabs?) A nice quick jab.....

** Delay Strings *************************************************************

Here are Paul's delay strings(delay possibility at the "-" sign)... not 
including the delay between a CD or an RD and the button press:


** Taunt/Imperfect Dragon Flip Kick ******************************************

Paul has a taunt most don't use... the motion is:

(fc)D#(2 seconds)

And then Paul will do his Tekken 2 win pose(hold 4 after you win a round in T2). 
You must hold STRAIGHT DOWN and be in FC and then wait for the the taunt to come 
out, also you must continue holding D through out the whole animation to see the 
whole thing. While doing this Taunt you can do anything you could 
normally(you're in FC remember... FC and WS moves). Even if it looks like you 
are standing no high hits or grabs can touch you(including Togres Standing 
Flames or King's Lariats) BUT you do make yourself a bigger target for the so 
called "HIGH" mid attacks(such as Nina's f,f+2).

You can continue the taunt for the ultimate humiliation. To do Paul's Imperfect 
Flip Kick.... The full motion is:

(fc)D#(3 seconds),u+2+3+4

This move can be done easily but some people have trouble with it. The timing of 
the u+2+3+4 must be done at or somewhat after Paul brings his arms to his 
side(keep holding D, arms to the side then u+2+3+4), don't be hasty... it's a 
nice open window. Second... sometimes if you're not so sure of your multi button 
pressing talents you should use the buffer button technique. I usually hold down 
3+4 after I do some move and then do the taunt and after the arms have come down 
I'll press u+2(while still holding 3+4)... easy. Finally this move is a risk 
obviously =P~ it just plain sucks if you want it to hit(range sucks... it hits 
mid for 25 damage going up, 20 damage coming down and 30 damage towards the 
bottom... it hits like Law's Rainbow Kick... and to hit with the last two 
possible hits people would... have... to... run... under... it... bleh) since 
the setup time is large and the range is crap you'll save this move to embarass 
your opponent... since not only will this move never hit but it also damages 
Paul =O for 15 points of damage... if that wasn't enough it leaves you in the 
very vulnerable ground position of face down/head towards(note: When Paul hits 
the ground he looks like he is in grounded FCD position but in actuallity he's 
in KND position for awhile... this can be tested with King's Ground Throws or 
hitting him during that period). The best way to get this move out to fufill 
it's purpose... to taunt w/out TOO much pain/risk to yourself is to preform it 
after you connected with a Death Fist... counter hit being the best... and while 
the opponent is rolling away and you're stunned hold down 3+4... well I just 
explained this above. This will certainly tell your opponent what you think of 
them when you make yourself look silly and take damage at the same time.

** Death Fist Revenge ********************************************************

Since so many whiners think the Death Fist is the cheesiest thing in the game 
here are some SIMPLE and GUARANTEED DF blocked minor counter attacks just to 
show you how to punish any STUPID Paul players out there who abuse this move:

f+4... hold forward a little if they do a DF from far away.

f,f+2... Do it quickly.
f+4... Bryan has nice range on this move.
df+2... EASY.

Nothing I could find... but then agian Bosco can dodge those high DFs somewhat 

df+3... You can hold D after to go into ground position.
d+4... Eddy's most excellent low poke.

f,f+4,3... can be done but I don't recommend it.
b+2... Easy... The JunkYard Punch strikes... YET AGAIN!
b+1,2... These work almost as well as the JYP^^^ but hurt more and are not as 
         easy to get as the b+2.

Nothing... but he freaking ducks the DF standing neutral guarding =)

f+2... yay... one of Gunny's B+B moves... easy to tag.
f+1+2... double yay... another of GJs B+B moves... only better =) Look in 
         Gun's section for good juggle follow ups....

df,f+2... insta DF... must do this very quick.
d+1... We love the hammer, right kiddies?!
f,n,d,df+2... Woooooo.....

df+4... pokey pokey.
df+3... pokey pokey... again.
f+2... pok...ey....
df+1+2... po....
b+2... po... slap....

d+4... why would you pick this one, keep going...
df+4,4... don't do from the longest distance or the last kick will wiff.
df+1_f+1+2... start up them customs boys.
f,f+2... Paul meet the mini Death Fist.
b,f+2,1... smack-smack!
b+2,4,2,1... hey... hey... I can't block... ahhhh stop!
f,n,d~df+2... EWGF... if you can get it....

f,f+2,b... hard to get but does work....
f,f+1... easy.
d,df+1.... Go for the gold Julie
df+3... upper kick!

b+4... nice and solid
f+4... I think you can see that f+4s tend to have nice range+speed to tag 
       these kind of push away moves.
df+3... B+B moves....
df+1... Hammer-like....

f+1... poke...
f+2... continues poking...
d+2... he poked...
d+1... guess...
f+1+2; 1+2... mwuahaha... a Kuma standard.
df+2; f+2; f+1+2... Paul must've been really stupid and done a DF right in 
                    Kuma's lovely face.

f+3... ouch.
f,n+1,2*,1... Hard to do... also 2nd punch will wiff but the 3rd is still 
(f,n+4,1)_(f,n+4+1)... 2 hits... hard to get... just do the freakin' f+3 =P

f,f+1+2,1+2... not that easy to connect.
f+3; f,f+3... I HATE Ling.
df+3... yeah yeah...
f,f+3... if you want them standing to play some back turned games.

I'm not gonna check for this... just take note that some moves that worked with 
the Norm chars may not work with him or possibly versus Moku-Paul.

df+4... magically hits... of course... it's Nina
df+3,2,3... visit Nina's section
df+3,1,4... ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
f+4... Good good.
b+2,2... may miss... be careful.
f,f+2... whatever....

db+4... ankle biters....
f+3... wow =P

f+1... so amazing... why 2,2 doesn't work will forever evade me(crap hit 
       detection... damn Namco... why).

f+4... you know how it goes...
f+2... eh...
df+1... yahoo...
d+1... Hammer action, yeah! Easy!
DF... Ha, fire with fire... Paul travels better than Hei so it's easier.
f+3... in the kisser....

df+4... OF COURSE! Never misses.
df+2... sheesh, this is worse than an EWGF in some ways... somewhat less 
        damage but so easy.
3_f+3... just to kill him.
f+2; df+2... OMG...
df+1,1... OK....
f+4... yeah...
f,f+4... basic....
db+1... not guaranteed in the normal sense....

There ya go... happy? Will people stop whining? =P BTW, these moves are not only 
useful in hitting a Paul PSmasher but also TEND to work against other similar 
moves that hit hard but knock you kinda far back when you block them such as a 
Nina Blonde Bomber(f+1+2) or Nina Divine Cannoner(db+4,3). Oh and... SOME of 
these attacks only work when Paul does his Smasher in close(WGFs can only be 
caught on Pauly in close for example)... he's a safer if the he starts it from 
farther away.

** Ultimate Punishment Timing ************************************************

More than once have I seen the question asked on the timing of this move, well 
here it is, it's really not hard. The official motion is:

db+1+2(or from a running tackle); 2,d+1,1; 4,1,1+2

Paul tackles, after the pink throw spark tap 2, then HOLD down and mash left 
punch till the first right punch(2) actually hits Paul's opponent, then input 
this string quickly(it's not hard at all):(4,1,1+2), remember you can can HOLD 
the 1 in this string to make it (4,1#,+2), now this final string must be input 
before the final gut punch hits(if you mess up, at the final gut punch you will 
hear the opponent groan when the gut punch hits).

BTW the Ultimate Punishment is unbreakable once the first right punch 
connects... better parry it >=)

** Tackle Punch Reverse ******************************************************

Back from Tekken 2... thought gone... thought lost forever... recently 
rediscovered... Tackle Punch Reversal... *hushed awe* (OK, enough of that).

The command for the Tackle Punch Reversal is 1,1,2 and can only reverse right 
punches... but there's a nice trick that goes along with this... if you do the 
motion as 1,1 BEFORE the Tackle Punch PARRY WINDOW and then press 2 DURING the 
regular Tackle Punch PARRY WINDOW if Paul's Tackler does any kind of punch Paul 
is covered =) You see the 1,1,2 will REVERSE right punches BUT the final input 
of the REVERSE is ALSO the left punch PARRY. Just make sure you hit 1,1 BEFORE 
the window for parries opens. If you want to check for the window go to Pmode 
and check out Jin tackling and then right punching once against Paul with Freeze 
Signal turned on(try recording Jin tackling and right punching). When Paul turns 
green for a little bit that's when the Tackle Punch Parry window is open. Now 
this double punch protection is good but it leaves precious little time to 
parry(by doing this Punch Protection you can't do an Arm or Leg Bar REVERSE but 
can still do the Arm or Leg Bar PARRY) any Arm Bars certain characters may throw 
at Pauly, but it can be done... just not easily, need quick fingers and 
practice. Also I don't think it's possible to Tackle Punch Reverse after the 
first set of three punches but I will keep trying and testing.

** Reversal Stuff ************************************************************

The formula for reversal damage is [base damage/2]+25

If Paul's right kick is reversed by Paul, he can tech roll when he hits the 
floor to escape. He raises with his back turned....

Paul can't reverse Yoshi's sword attacks...

He can reverse Eddy's (fc)3+4.

** Reverse Hop Kick **********************************************************

When Paul is back turned try uf+4. This means UP-TOWARDS your opponent. This 
pretty much sucks for Paul(his back turned juggle hop kick has less range... 
u+4) but could be useful in gaining distance and keeping your back turned(bleh). 

There is a way to do the reg back turned jugg hop kick however ^_^ But I'm not 
sure if it's either:

u+4~uf or u~uf+4 (and remember uf is Up-TOWARDS your opponent)

Hard to always nail but it does work :D

** While Standing Ten Hit ****************************************************

Paul has a weird property when cutting off one of his ten hits early. If you 
stop the ten string and press any button AFTER the input to actually continue 
the ten string will be ACCEPTED but before he recovers from the move he will 
finish the string with (ws) properties(and he seems slightly more stunned). This 
only works in the following string where I have marked it with stars:


The effect is obvious as it greatly changes Paul's animations(if you press the 
button early enough) if you pay close attention to not pressing any of the 
buttons a few extra times(like I usually do :) ). Paul naturally seems to 
recover (ws) at the first 4 and the 3rd 2... It's hard to test since any 
button(1,2,3,4) will cause the alternate (ws) status so I could be mistaken 
about that.

   ^; f,f+3,4,4 (54) Nice, easy and powerful(for a Paul jugg)... the last kick

                     late as possible.
   ^; 1; SB+3-2,1 (50) Bleh, timing is hard if you don't want techs... not to
                       mention that the elbow tends to miss anyway unless you 
                       get the hop kick really close.

     ^; Any ET(queek), uf+4, df+2 juggle, or throw can connect after this.
     ^; uf,4; f,f+3,4,4 (94) That's one spicia meatball =)
     ^; uf+4; f,f+3,4,4 (76) Look above... that jump kick smarts.
     ^; ET; f,f+3,4,4 (87) I dare you to try this in an actual fight =P Looks
     ^; DF (52-68) Easy... moderately powerful.
     ^; uf+3,4 (62) Simple stuff again.

         ^; f,f+4 (46) Since they can't tech this you might want to give them 
                       a chance(less than a quarter of a second) to get up and
                       then have this move slam em back to the ground at your 
                       feet, then you can do a (fc)df+3 to hit them again.
         ^; f,f; f+1+2 (63; Gunjack+) This is just a forward dash then f+1+2 
                                      God Hammer.
         ^+(bk); f,f+3,4 (64; Togre only) Practice mode silliness... hard 
                                          (lucky) to get, but it does work.

        ^+(very close to close) f+4 (67)
        ^+(very close to medium) df+4 (60)
        ^+(far) (41) Nothing guaranteed =(
        ^+(very far) d+1 (51) Only guaranteed if at the tip of the f+1+2's 
                              range... barely guaranteed.

            ^; n+1,4 (20_28)
            ^; f+1,2,3 (32_41)

      ^; Any Throw... this only works off the f+1, NOT the n+1
      ^; f+4 (33)

(n_f)+1,2; n+1,4 (31) Gotta get those first jabs in REAL close... I mean it!
        ^; db+3 (50)
        ^; d+1 (56)
        ^; f+1+2 (73; Gunjack+) They can move but they can't escape :)
    ^; DF (49)
    ^; f+1+2 (51)
    ^; f+1+4 (42)

        ^; (ws)4; d+1 (47)
        ^; (fc)df+1; uf+3,4 (47)
        ^; (fc)df+1; (fc)df+1; (fc)df+2,1 (54; Bryan+)

    ^; f,f; 1+2 (124-130) I've gotten this as a juggle if you time the 1+2 
                          press well but usually it just hits as them on 
                          the floor(which is better damage-wise).
    ^; f,f; 4 (113-120) Easier than the above to time correctly, however it's 
                        weaker and you're more vulnerable afterwards.

      ^; 2; uf+3,4 (32) Easy cheesy.
      ^; db+2; (fc)df+2,1 (33) Looks like you're cool =)
      ^; 1; SB+3-2,1 (39) I ALWAYS mess the sway up :( Non techable if done 

       ^; f+3 (56)
       ^; f,f; SB+3-2,1 (58-62)
       ^; DF (59-66) DF... the answer...
       ^; f,f+3,4,4 (69) *nods in approval*
      ^; DF (63) I ain't done with you yet....

** Funky Side Juggles vs Togre ***********************************************
ET(sd-ch); SB+3(jsd),2(ho),1(jsd); d+1(fo),2(fo) Togre can air-tech at the 
                                                 elbow... still looks great.
My Personal Records
Eh... just wanted to pad my FAQ with useless info :) Anyway, I know I could 
lower some of these down by a lot(like Ling's) but I'm kinda lazy... the only 
one I kinda care about right now is Bosco's cause I just want him below 4 
minutes and then I'd be happy(and beat this guy, at 
aros.net/~kgcampb/tekken.html ! Konqrr! Mwuahaha! Goto his site...)....

** Survival ******************************************************************

Survival is damn stupid... once you find the "cheese" the thing is practically 
pointless(I've heard of scores over 1000 from Japan), unlike Time Trial IMO, and 
can last forever... again unlike Time Trial since it's kind of fun to find new 
ways to trick the AI into giving up the most damaging hits and once you start 
"grinding the metal" it starts relying on luck which can be cathartic(Survival 
is just boring). Anyway I'll just post my highest... since that's all that 
matters(should be like Time where you have to get one for each character).

1st Heihachi  58 WINS

These are my own personal scores if you have a tip on how to do better at Time 
or Survival... WTH, go ahead and send it to me :)
I hope you enjoyed this FAQ :) If you have anything to ask, correct or expand 
upon feel free to send an email my way(Notti: mahgnitton@hotmail.com ). If 
anyone's interested I also wrote a Final Fantasy Tactics FAQ dealing in the same 
way with that game... factoids and details, secrets and tricks. Look for this 
FFT FAQ at Gamefaqs in the Playstation section( 
http://gamefaqs.com/console/psx/faq/final_fantasy_tactics_deep_dungeon_a.txt ) 
or at the following places:
