And for the people who may not know about the search funtion: If you press
the Control + F keys on your computer, you'll get a search dialog. Put in
one of the keys you see on the right, and you'll be brought directly to 
that section. For example, if you want to go to the Scoring System, you would
type "[SCORE]".

| 02A. Ribbit King                                                     [RIBBK] |
[]============================================================================[]

Ribbit King is a strange game, produced by Bandai. It's one of those rare, but
sweet games, that come out in America before other places, and not in Japan at
all. It's like a freshing payback, for the great games Japan never sent us. 
Anyway, before I lose track of myself, this game is like a game in a game. You
see, it's technically a sport game. However, the sport is Frolf, and I'm sure
you won't see that at any nearby stadiums. Let's talk a little more about Frolf.

[]============================================================================[]
| 02B. Frolf                                                           [FROLF] |
[]============================================================================[]

Frolf is kind of like mini-golf, but with many strange features. First of all,
you will be hitting frogs around with hammers - Which is obviously how you get
the name "Frolf". But that's not even close to being the only difference. Some
of the new features include the scoring system. Unlike golf, the idea is not to
get it to the hole as fast as possible, but to collect as many points along the
way. The frogs will interact with water, bugs, and spring pads, among other 
many things, and this all servers to make an interesting experience. For
example, unlike golf, where water hazards cost you strokes, in Frolf, the frog 
will swim across giving you *more* points. This FAQ will show you the ins-and-
outs of Frolf, so I believe this is enough of an introduction.

[]============================================================================[]

In this mode, you'll be in a huge Frolf tournament, on a quest to win "Super
Ribbinite" to save your planet (See the story section for more information on
this.) You'll fly from planet to planet, in search of opponents to play Frolf
with. When you beat everyone, you'll win the Frolf cup, becoming the Frolf
Champion! This is the mode that you can unlock Characters and Frogs for use in
the VS modes, with.

[]============================================================================[]

In this mode, you and up to four players - Both human and computer - will 
select items, choose a planet, and play Frolf. You'll be playing four holes,
and after all four are through, a random bonus will be given out. After this,
a winner will be decided.

| 04C. Multi-player Match Play                                        [2PMAT]  |
[]============================================================================[]

In this mode, you and up to four players - Both human and computer - will
select items, choose a planet, and play Frolf. You'll be playing four holes,
jsut like in match play, but in this mode, the player with most points after
each hole is the winner for that hole, and the player with most holes at the
end, will be declared the winner of the game.

[]============================================================================[]

The goal of Frolf is not to make it into the hole as fast as you can, but to
end the match with as many points as you can. Getting it into the hole fast will
help you out a lot, but don't rush it. Go for the gimmick bubbles (more on that
later) and other ways to get points first, such as water, and springs: More on
them later, as well. Note: If you do not make it into the hole by eight turns,
you will give up. This will cause you to lose out on alot of points, so try not
to do it.

[]============================================================================[]
| 05B. Aiming/Hitting                                                 [AIMNG]  |
[]============================================================================[]

Now obviously, you'll have to hit you're frogs, before they go anywhere. Before
you do that though, press the X button. Here, you can access the Frog and Item
menus. These will allow you to affect how your swing will work. For examples,
some frogs allow you to swim safely in water, and some items will allow the 
frogs to go father than usuall. After you use any special frogs or items, you
will be ready to hit the frogs!

Aim the direction that you'll hit the frog in with the control stick, and 
change the height of the arc with the D-Pad. It's a good idea to zoom in, 
using the C-Stick, to get a more accurate view of where your frog will land.
Remember to take into consideration though, that your frog will hop two or
three times when it lands - Unless affected by other circumstances.

Now, to actually hit the frog, press the A button. The meter at the bottom of
the screen will begin to fill. Try to press A when it reaches the end. The
closer to the end it is, the closer to your target, the frog will land. If you
can get it perfectly on the line, you'll do a super swing. This means it will
land perfectly where you aimed it.  And that's about it for aiming!

[]============================================================================[]
| 05C. Gimmick Bubbles                                                [BUBBL]  |
[]============================================================================[]

There are lots of bubbles around the courses. These are called gimmick bubbles,
and they are a key aspect in racking up points. There are two kinds of them.
There are multiplier bubbles, and point bubbles. You can "activate" them by
popping them. You can pop them by smacking your frog through them.

The point bubbles are easy to understand. You hit them, and get the points 
marked on the bubble. The number can be 10, 20, 30, 50, 100, or in rare cases,
200. Multipliers on the otherhand are a bit trickier to understand. They will
have 2x or 3x written on them. By popping them, any points you get from 
landing on targets will be multiplied. More on targets later, but it works
like this. If you hit a 2x bubble, and land on a 70 point target, you will 
earn 140 points.

[]============================================================================[]
| 05D. Springs                                                        [SPRNG]  |
[]============================================================================[]

There are springs in every level, though the appearence differs in each. In
some levels, it's a spider web, in some it's an animal hide, and in some it's
a red circle. However, despite its appearence, its use is always the same. You
get points, and are flung forward. The points you get are determined by how
many springs you've already landed on in this string. If you land on one 
spring, you'll get 30 points. If you land on another one, before your frog
stops, you'll get 60 points for that one. If you land on a third, you'll get 
90 points. This pattern continues until you're frog stops.

The distance and height you are flung after landing on one, depends on the
type of swing you did. The higher the arc you made, the higher you'll bounce.
However, the higher you go, the shorter distance that you'll be flung. So, if
you want to go maximum distance, have a small arc.


[]============================================================================[]
| 05E. Flies                                                          [FLIES]  |
[]============================================================================[]

Flies are a very unique part of this game. When a frog stops completely, a fly
can allow him to begin moving again. You see, if the frog is close enough, he
will jump for the fly, picking up points, and possibly entering into another 
combo of swimming, springs, and gimmick bubbles!

There are two different kinds of flies. There are shiny ones, and there are 
black ones. The black ones are worth more, but both give points, that increase
in a similair way to springs. That is, getting two or more in one swing results
in more points, than two in seperate swings. Black ones evidently start at 20
or 30, while the shiny ones start at 10,15 or 20. There are evidently side 
effects though. Black ones make your frog a bit more tired - so he can't be hit
as far - And gold ones make him a bit dizzier - So it is a bit harder to aim.
This is uasually worth it, for the points, though.


[]============================================================================[]
| 05F. Swimming                                                       [SWIMN]  |
[]============================================================================[]

This is another major aspect of the game, that seperates it from golf. When a  
frog is hit into water, it will begin to swim across. While swimming, a frog
will gain 1 point each second. This number can be increased too. If you come
out of the water, and use a spring, fly, or anything else like that, that gets
you points, then go back in, the number will increase. For example, if I swim
across a lake, at one point each second, then come up on shore to eat a fly,
and boucne back in, I'll begin getting 2 points a second. If I then come up on
another shore, bounce on a spring, and land back in the water once more, I'd
be making 3 points each second!

There are also lava pits that you can swim in - That is, if you're frog is one
that is immune to lava. You can check this in the appendix section on frogs.
If you're frog can't swim in lava, don't fret though. There are items that can
help you out! Check the item appendix for more information on that.

[]============================================================================[]
| 05G. Other Animals                                                  [ANIMA]  |
[]============================================================================[]

The first, and most common type of other animal that you'll  meet, is the Snake.
Snakes will play a big part of this game, as they are in almost every course.
While aiming, sometimes you'll say a head pop up out of the ground. This will 
tell you that that area has a snake in it. However, they can appear in more
areas as well. Now, about how they work. If you land in an area wqith one, they
will pop up, and bite your frog! This can be a good thing or a bad thing.

When this happens, you'll see a C-stick on the right-hand side of the screen.
Press the C-stick in left-right motions, until the snake lets go. If you press
it fast, you'll gain points! Sometimes it's 30, sometimes it's 100, but either
way, it can launch you into a possible combo. If you don't push it enough, you
will lose points - However, you can still continue your combo!

Another common animal, is the elephant. Sometimes, they'll appear as Mammoths.
These guys are huge, so you can easily spot them on the map. Like Snakes, they
can be either good or bad. You see, they'll send you in a random direction, and
either give, or take points from you. A bar on the right side of the screen
will have an A button. When it lights up, hit the A button! If you time it 
correctly, you will gain points, from between 30 and 100.

Another "animal" is a spiked-bomb creature. If you land near it, it will 
detonate. Like with the elephants, a bar with an A button will light up on the
right. If you press A at the right time, you get points. If not, you lose them.
Again, you will be blasted in a random direction.

There are also tadpoles and Pterodactly. If you land on a tadpole in the water,
he will give your frtog a ride, doubling the points you were getting each 
second, until you reach the shore. For example, if I was swimming at 4 points
each  second, and got a tadpole, I'd be getting 8 points each second. 
Pterodactlys are  similair, except they will give you 10 points a second no
matter what. You can ride the Pterodactly, by landing in its nest.

Finally, there's the storm cloud. They are activated if you bump into them,
or land below where they are floating. One of two things can happen, and you
don't have control over it. Either they rain on you, giving 1,2,3, or 4 points
per second, or they strike lightning at you, causing you to lose points, and
be blasted in a random direction.

| 05I. Ice/Mud Sliding                                                [SLIDE]  |
[]============================================================================[]

In some levels - Mainly those on Frosticle - there are frozen lakes of either
water or mud. If you hit your frog onto one of these, they will continue to 
slide, until they are off the ice. There are items that you can use to negate
this effect, butt with some planning, it can be used to really help you. You
don't get any points for it, however.

[]============================================================================[]
| 05I. Portals                                                        [PORTL]  |
[]============================================================================[]

Portals are an interesting part of the game. If you hit your frog into one, you
will gain 30 points, and make your frog a bit dizzier. However, that's not the
interesting part. You see, any level with a portal in it, contains at least two
seperate portals, and hitting your frog into one, will cause him to come out of
the other one! This is a great way to string together combos, while moving your
frog closer to the hole.

[]============================================================================[]
| 05J. Item Pads                                                      [IPADS]  |
[]============================================================================[]


In most levels, you'll see large pads with question marks on them, on the 
ground. You can also identify them by the balloons floating above them. Well,
these are item pads. When you land on one, the balloon will pop, and you will
be rewarded an item! Besides the item yuou'll also get some points. The point
total will be 10,20,30,50,100 or 200.

| 05K. Misc. Features                                                 [MISCF]  |
[]============================================================================[]

Throughout the course of the game, you'll face many other features as well.
These will include storm clouds, elephants, conveyor belts, and man-eating
mushrooms. It's stuff like these that make up this game! Instead of making this
section too long, I'll just list those special features in the Planets section.
That will make things alot easier to find for you.

Now, I'm assuming you'd like to know how the scoring system works. Or at least
you will if you plan to build those large combos! First, let's look at how the
points you get for sinking the frog in the hole works.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  FROG-IN-ONE                   | 1,500 Points                               |
|  First FROG-IN                 | 1,000 Points                               |
|  Other                         | 1,000 Points - (Number of turns since 1st) |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

Next, let's take a look at how springs give out points.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  First Spring                  | 30 Points                                  |
|  Other Spring                  | 30 Points x (Spring Number)                |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

And Flies...

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Fly                           | Varies (Based on Length of Combo)          |
|  Shiny Fly                     | Varies (Based on Combo) (More than Normal) |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
* I am not sure about this. Any information would be appreciated.

Gimmick Bubbles shown below.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Point Bubble                  | (Number Shown on It)                       |
|  Multiplier Bubble             | (Multiplier Shown) x (Combo Score)         |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

Now we look at the interaction with living creatures.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Snake                         | Random Points (Add or Subtract)            |
|  Chomp                         | Random Points (Add or Subtract)            |
|  Mammoth                       | Random Points (Add or Subtract)            |
|  Salamanders                   |(Points per second swimming) x 2 x (Seconds)|
|  Pterodactly                   | 5 Points x (Number of Seconds)             |
|  Storm Clouds (Raining)        | 1/2/3/4 x (Number of Seconds)              |
|  Storm Clouds (Lightning)      | Random Points (Subtracted)                 |
|  Black Cloud                   | 100 Points                                 |
|  Mine                          | Random Points (Add or Subtract)            |
|  Blizzard Monster              | Random Points (Add or Subtract)            |
|  Tiny Tees                     | 10 Points x (Number of Seconds)            |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

And now, let's look at swimming. Note, for the lava, this only applies if your
frog can handle it. Most frogs will simply bounce out of the water. Four times
like this, and you'll get an out of bound (shown a bit later.)

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  First Water Swim              | 1 Point x (Number of Seconds)              |
|  Other Water Swim              | (Number of Swim) x (Number of Seconds)     |
|  First Lava Swim               | 1 Point x (Number of Seconds)              |
|  Other Lava Swim               | (Number of Swim) x (Number of Seconds)     |
|  First Orange Water Swim       | 20 Points x (Number of Seconds)            |
|  Other Orange Water Swim       | (40 x Number of Swim) x (Number of Seconds)|
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

Portals work like so:

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Portals                       | 30 Points                                  |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

And getting out of bounds.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Our of Bounds                 |  50/100 (Subtracted)                       |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

Hitting a wall.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Hitting a Wall                | 5/10/20/30/100 (Subtracted)                |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

And landing on targets.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Targets with Points Marked    | Points Shown                               |
|  Blue Targets                  | 30/40/60/100/140 (Random)                  |
|  Item Targets                  | 10/20/50/100/150/200/300 (Depends on Item) |
|  Clown Targets                 | 5/30 Points (Depending on Position)        |
|  Smile Targets                 | 30/40/60/100/140 (Random)                  |
|  Arrow Targets                 | 10/20/30 x (Number of Bubbles You Get)     |
[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]

Finally, you will be given points as a bonmus, after 4 matches.

[]==============================[ ]==========================================[]
|  Swim King (Swimming Most)     | 100/200 Points                             |
|  Drive King (Driving Farthest) | 100/200 Points                             |

[]============================================================================[]

Scooter, is a young boy, who evidently has a hammer. Due to this, he is 
summoned by the King. The king tells him, that the planet is low on Ribbenite -
a substance needed to keep the planet going. Well, evidently, there's a Frolf
tournament, with a supply of Ribbenite for the prize! Being as Scooter is the
only one with a hammer, he is told to enter it. After a short dillema, of the
King being too cheap to get him a good trainer, buying the one he did on a
bargain sale, SCooter will be good to go Frolfing in the tournament!

[]============================================================================[]

After the first match with Pickwich (don't worry, It's covered int hte section
below) you'll be taken aboard a spaceship, known as the F.U.V. There are a few
things that you can do in here. Let me go over these things:

Gumbah-Goo:   This is the gumball machine against the wall. For 2000 money, 
              you can get a random gumball from this machine. You get money
              by winning Frolf matches. Note: You can shake it with the C-stick.

Vend-o-Matic: You can buy three items here. Power-Fuel, for 1000 money,  Frog-
              Fuel, for 500, and Beta-Ribbotin for 300.

Pickwick:     If youi talk to pickwick, you can view and setup the items and
              frogs that you'll be bringing along to your next Frolf game. You
              can also contact the king to save, view your bottlecaps, and quit
              back to the main menu.

Slugger:      If you talk to slugger, you'll be able to choose an opponent to
              face in a game of Frolf.

Take a Nap:   This isn't useful, and is just for a bit of fun. Don't press 
              anything on the controller. Soon, Scooter will stumble, as if he
              was tired. Then, he'll fall down. After that, his head will
              bobble, and he'll take a little nap! Soon, he'll get up, slightly
              dizzy, and revert to normal.

There are five different types of things that you can unlock in this game. They
are Characters, Frogs, Items, Movie Clips, and bottlecaps. You can unlock the
characters by beating them in story mode. You can unlock items by either 
landing on item pads during matches, getting them randomly from the gumbah-goo
machine, buying them from the vend-o-matic, or buying them from an opponent
after a match. You unlock frogs by buying them from opponents after a match
(see the frogs section for more detail). There are also two rare frogs, that
can only be got through the gumbah-goo machine. You unlock bottlecaps for
doing many different things. Theree are just too many to list, so check the
bottlecaps section for more details on unlocking them. Finally, movie clips.
Again, you have challenges. Put in the second disk (Ribbit King Plus) and 
scroll over a movie you didn't have yet, for how to unlock it. The goals are
also in the Ribbit King Plus section of this FAQ.

Asked By: RC Cruz me (GCN Ribbit King Message Board)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q:    Is the bonus disc only for the Gamecube version?
A:    This is probably the most asked question on the game. And the answer is
      yes. While at the store buying this, I saw both cases, and both of them
      have the two disks.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Asked By: CPFace (GCN Ribbit King Message Board)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Is it just me, or are the CPU opponents' drives always the same when you 
   replay them? It seems like they programmed in pre-determined shots instead 
   of making an AI for the CPU opponents. 
A: The shots are generally in the same pattern, but they are not the same. For
   example, sometimes the opponent will get a Frog-In-One on a course, and the
   next time, they won't. Although yes, they go generally choose the same 
   path.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Asked By: ShadowZora13 (GCN Ribbit King Message Board)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. I just beat Sparky & Whoosh 2, and they offered me a hints & help (or 
   something like that) for 100,000c. I had heard about the item but all it
   says is that it is only obtainable that one time. But I want to know what it
   does! 
A: The item has no real use, it is just part of the story. You actually can't
   purchase it, as they will change their mind if you select yes. However, 
   later in the game, when Captain Oinka comes, Scooter will remember them. So,
   basically, it's jsut there as part of the plot. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Asked By: Seiryu Seikun (PS2 Ribbit King Message Board)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I just beat Sparky and Whoosh 2 and they had a item called Cheats and Tips 
   or something for 100,000, I didn't have enough so I was wondering if I go
   against them again will they offer the same thing?
A: Like I said to ShadowZora13, you don't need that item. However, that was
   not your question. You wanted to know if they'll offer it again. The answer
   is no. The opponents will only try to sell you an item once.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Asked By: Stillnotelf (GCN Ribbit King Message Board)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Has anyone else had any clipping issues? I've played the first 5 levels or
   so, and a lot of multiplayer, without having any problems. Then, today, I 
   hit a frog clear through a mountain on Frosticle...
A: Unfortuneately, yes. I've gotten frogs through conveyor belts on planet
   Techtron. It's just a glitch we'll have to deal with.

This game has a simple concept, but the game itself is not as simple. There are
still lots of scoring algorithems that I don't know, and possibly even frogs,
characters, or items. Any information not present in this guide during it's 
time of you reading it, is valuable to me. Please e-mail me if you know 
anything not here yet. I'll also accept, any strategies other than my own, for
matches already listed, in the walkthrough section. My e-mail is 
GermanDragon[at]gmail[dot]com. You're name will of course be put in the credits,
if you are kind enough to contribute.
