=====SECTION 1: HISTORY OF GREAT MUTA======
===========================================
NOTE: This FAQ is based upon the old NJPW/WCW Muta, not
the new AJPW version of Muta that Mutoh now does.

Keiji Mutoh is known to have many identities, and the 
Great Muta was one of them. Whenever he put on that face
paint, he became the rule-breaking, hardcore wrestler
with that hidden poison mist.

It is quite hard to write the history for Muta since it's 
closely linked to Mutoh's (check out B.Wood's great FAQ), 
so I'll just give a few of his greatest hits:

His fued with Sting was an awesome one that spanned for
many years. If they were not beating the crap out of each 
other, then they were tag teaming.

Muta also fought Lyger in a series that saw Muta rip off 
Lyger's mask, revealing Lyger with face paint. They soon 
had a match with Lyger turning into Lyger-Muta.

Muta also fought in a match against Atsushi Onita, but the 
already-crazy Onita put on some paint and turned into the 
Great Nita.

After a short retirement, Keiji Mutoh has revived the Great Muta
gimmick. Instead of face paint, Mutoh now uses a mask and is now
in All Japan.

=======================
==SECTION 4: STRATEGY==
=======================

GENERAL STRATEGY
Here's a good strategy for Muta:

A.Offense

1a. Make your opponent bleed. Muta has two Fork Attack specials 
and biting. They both do the job well.

1b. You, the player, must bleed. Muta gains a boost if he bleeds. 
Unless your fighter isn't a hardcore/rough fighter, get a barb-wire
bat or glass and let your opponent bash you with it.

2. Attack the spine/back area.You have a ton of suplexes and the 
backbreaker, so keep on using them to set up the ...

3. Landing Body Press. It can CRITICAL, so use it a lot. One problem:
If you miss, your legs are screwed big time. But it doesn't make you
fall flat on your ass. 

B. Defense
Muta can withstand a lot of pain, as he is easily one of the best wrestlers
to use. Just be on the defensive against ground or technical opponents.
Try not miss the Landing Body Press or those knees will be shot like Mutoh's.
He has low foot stength, so the damage will strongly accumulate.

Remember to use the Poison Mist, as any Muta match can't go on without it.

STRIKES
For a mysterious fighter, Muta has some average moves. Use them as pokers
and don't forget to use the poison mist. Remember to avoid the use of the
dropkick, as it can be risky if missed. 

GRAPPLES
Muta's moves are powerful, so try to average it out a bit. If you want a 
quick match, stick to using the suplexes, as they all target the back area,
and it will help set up the finisher.
