| 1. INTRODUCTION |
-------------------
Welcome one and all to my first guide to my new favorite game of all time - 
Fire Pro Wrestling D. You might remember me from my various Character 
Guides, wrestler list, and Edit Ranking guide from Fire Pro G, as well as 
guides for No Mercy, and AJPW King's Soul. In the few short weeks I've been 
on the various Fire Pro D forums on the web, I've noticed a lot of questions 
concerning Critical!s, and how to perform them with certain fighters. It was 
then that I got the idea to create a guide that will list how to do them 
with each fighter in the game. I hope you find this helpful.

--------------------------
| 2. CRITICAL! EXPLAINED |
--------------------------
Q: What is a CRITICAL! ?
A: A CRITICAL! is Fire Pro's version of a knockout in the match. It's where 
a fighter will catch his opponent with a move that takes so much out of him 
that he can't go on. Most wrestlers can CRITICAL! with their Finisher move. 
In this case, if the move is lucky enough to CRITICAL!, the word will flash 
on the screen, the victim will lie lifeless on the ground, and the referee 
will stop the match.

Q: Can everyone in FPD do one?
A: No. Some wrestlers can only Critical by a Finisher, but the move that is 
marked as Finisher may not by able to Critical. For example, NJPW's Animal 
Hamaguchi has a running elbowdrop as a finishing move, but it doesn't 
Critical at all. Therefore, you won't get a Critical with him.

Q: How can I be sure to cause a Critical?
A: There's no surefire way to cause one. Though fighters like, say, Vader 
are a lot more likely to acheive one than another, there's a lot of luck 
involved.

Q: Can I Critical from a reversal?
A: Absolutely. These are sometimes the most gratifying instances.

Q: Do I have to do my Finisher to get a Critical?
A: No. Different wrestlers have different Critical types. Some can Critical 
from just finishers, but others can do them from power bombs, suplexes, 
submissions, and other moves.

Q: How can I make my chances better of pulling one off?
A: There is an option in the match options menu where you can set the 
Critical rate to low, medium, or high. You can turn it off as well, but 
where's the fun in that? The option is the last one in the menu, and the 
translation is OFF, LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH.

Q: Does my opponent's health matter?
A: Not at all. It's possible to Critical 10 seconds into a match.

Q: Are there other ways for an opponent to be knocked out or Critical!ed 
without an offensive move from me?
A: Yes. In the Exploding Cage match, after the explosion, there's a very 
good chance one of you will be layed out and the match will end from the 
blast. Some people have even been Critical!ed at the same time as their 
opponent this way.

---------------------------
| 3. THIS GUIDE EXPLAINED |
---------------------------
This guide is a work in progress, and will most likely be for a while. I'll 
be updating it a lot until I'm satisfied. Most of the fighters listed can 
only Critical using Finishers. If that's the case, I will list how to do 
that move. If they can Critical with suplexes, submissions, strikes, 
technical moves, or other types, I'll list one or two other moves that can 
Critical! If you see a move that doesn't Critical!, please let me know, and 
credit will be given. Anyone who knows other Critical! moves or can 
contribute anything else here will be credited. Thanks.

Note: A * next to a wrestler's name means they are a hidden character and 
must be unlocked.

| 22. CRITICAL!s FROM FIRE PRO FIGHTERS |
-----------------------------------------

-- From EntwinedWithSickness, GameFAQs.com Board
  "my favorite Critical! occured tonight. It was a level 8 CPU, by the way. 
I was Shawn Michaels fighting Andre the Giant in a normal match. I tried 
many times to do weak grapples but to no avail. Gradually I kept doing 
standing strikes and wearing him down. I gave him a clothesline, and picked 
him up, he was dizzy, so I did Michaels' Superkick striking attack and 
Critical!ed Andre with only one kick at the 15:13 mark of the match."

"I had a sweet CRITICAL situation happen last night!! It was two criticals 
at once!! I was doing a 3 on 3 tag match between Tajiri, my CAW "Bolt", and 
Vader against Chyna, HHH, and X-pac. The match was going pretty normally 
(aka- "dX" getting the tar beaten out of them) and then chyna found herself 
thrown outside. I was controlling Bolt and followed her. Then Vader decided 
to give me a hand. Vader took over beating her up as I went back into the 
ring. I did my "Original Powerbomb" finisher to HHH and the big CRITICAL 
appeared on the screen as HHH laid motionless. But he wasnt the legal man, 
Chyna was (heh heh, legal "man"). I then looked at Chyna and saw...
HER LAYING ON THE FLOOR IN THE CRITICAL POSITION!! I think Vader CRITICALLED 
Chyna at the same time as I CRITICALLED HHH!!!!! SWEET!!! Cause only one 
"CRITICAL" message appeared on the screen (maybe there was a slight time 
overlap with teh message and the move) but two of my opponents were 
criticalled. And as extra insult to injury, I noticed that Tajiri had Xpac 
in a very punishing submission hold. So a double Critical, and total 
destruction of that team. quite amusing :) Hope this provided a good story!"

  "In the octagon, Vitor Belfort KO'ed Tito Ortiz (both edits). The sweet 
thing about was it was the first punch, a CRITICAL! that ended the match in 
14 seconds."

-- From Jizze, GameFAQs.com Board
  "I was Naohya Ogawa fighting Shamrock in the octagon, I hipped tossed him 
and he criticaled. lmao. I was Chyna in a regular match vs Road Dogg, I 
criticaled him with the low blow."

-- From Judge2003, GameFAQs.com Board
  "my dog walked out into the middle of the road, a car came by and BOOM 
CRITICAL!
   no that didnt really happen, i dont think i'd be able to post anymore if 
it did"

-- From misfits859, GameFAQs.com Board
  "You can put this one in your CPU cheap critical section. Actually I 
posted on it the other day. I was fighting a Muhammed Ali edit with an edit 
of Blackjack Mulligan in a tag match. Ali kept getting in punch strikes that 
I couldn't seem to get away from. Eventually he punched me and knocked me 
down. I got up but was stunned. Before I could recover he floored me with 
the punch again. Again I get up in a stunned position and he punches me to 
the mat again before I can recover. This happens four times until on the 
fifth time he lands a final punch which criticals me. Agghhhhh!!! Now that's 
gotta be cheating!"

-- From Basic, GameFAQs.com Board
  "My fastest ciritcal was when I was using Chuck Liddell and I criticaled 
Randleman in 3 seconds with a uppercut x+a move."

| 23. VERSION HISTORY |
-----------------------

For a change, I'm putting this at the end of the FAQ, seeing how I doubt 
anyone really cares.

v1.0 (09.01.02) - Began the FAQ, and included some information on Criticals 
and some stories. Added all wrestlers from New Japan, All Japan, NOAH, FMW, 
Michinoku Pro, and Toryumon. I will make sure these work in the next 
revision.

v1.1 (09.03.02) - Changed some info, and checked over the wrestlers from the 
previous version. About half have been changed. Also added wrestlers from 
Big Japan, Osaka Pro, and Freelance. Expect fighters from WWF and WCW and 
possibly AAA in the next revision.

v1.2 (09.06.02) - Added all WWF, WCW, and AAA wrestlers, and put up a new 
question in the FAQ. For everyone's information, I plan on doing Rings, 
Pancrase, and Battlearts for version 1.3, and the final version will have 
the remaining Gruesome fighters, the Joshi girls, and the Legends. Thanks 
for your support so far, guys!

v1.3 (09.14.02) - I figure all the corrections I did deserve an update on 
their own! But I managed to get the Rings, Pancrase, and Battlarts fighters 
in there, and with it, some new people to thank and etc.
