NOTE: I've added a Search Engine into all my FAQs now. To use this, if 
there's something you wish to find instantly in my FAQ, in the above 
table, on the left is the name of a section or sub-section. To the right 
is a weird code, like GOK5.1. Basically, if you wish to go to the section 
where I tell you about Goku under The Playable Characters Of The Story, on 
your Keyboard, hold Ctrl and then hit F and a window will open. Type in 
GOK5.1 and hit Find Next. It'll bring you to that section instantly. The 
code to reach the Table Of Contents is just that: Table Of Contents. I 
hope this makes browsing my FAQs easier for you. Enjoy!

Hi there and welcome to another one of Kain Stryder's Walkthroughs! I'm 
back once again and I'm covering River City Ransom EX this time, a upgrade 
to the classic NES game that was a underground smash hit. With graphical 
upgrades and new gameplay that allows you to recruit former enemies and 
even allies, all willing to lend you their services if you can locate 
them, River City Ransom EX is the ultimate school gang game. Hell, where 
else can you eat a burger and get stronger from it? Heh heh. 

Anyway, as usual, I ask that you please respect my work here and not copy 
it in any way and claim it as your own work. It's not supposed to be 
changed in any way, shape or form, without my consent, although feel free 
to do what you will with it for personal use. So, just don't use it for a 
profit, personal gain, etc, as that's all I'm asking, in return for you 
using this guide to help you. With that, thanks for listening and now, 
onto the actual Walkthrough!

Update: This Walkthrough is now available at GameFAQs, Neoseeker and any 
other sites I've allowed via E-Mail to host this file. If I did not give 
you permission to host this FAQ on your site, then you're hosting it 
illegally and if you're reading this on a site with any variatin of 
"cheat" in its name, please notify me so I may take the necessary action. 
Thanks.

= II. Current Updates . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ CURUP2 ]=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

9/7/08 - Made a correction on the money Gamers are worth as well as the 
information on Hemlock and Cough Meds, courtesy of Litbit. Other than 
that, nothing else has been added or changed.

5/14/07 - Just writing in to let any readers know if they E-Mail me any 
questions or comments, that my address still works. My willpower to write 
walkthroughs over the last few years died, mostly to college and real 
life, but I may just start this up again. Feel free to write in, thanks.

6/22/04 - I've completed everything there is in the game and documented it 
to assist you. Along with that, I've labeled this Walkthrough as the final 
version, so, if I ever need to update this guide again, I'll do so, for 
whatever reason, but until that time, there's nothing left to really add 
and anything you need to know should be here. Well, until I next update, 
enjoy the Walkthrough and I hope it helps you!

= III. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions.) . . . . . . . . . . . . [ FAQ3 ] =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Q. What are the differences in this version from the NES version?

A. As far as I'm aware, just some name changes to things, especially 
enemies and all. Graphics are of course upgraded, there's the Save feature 
for the battery pack instead of the Password that was used for the NES and 
there's a option to recruit gang members to help you as you play. Not sure 
if there's anything else that's different, but if there is, I'm sure a few 
helpful people will let me know!

Q. How long is the game?

A. Not very long at all. The game is childishly easy and can be beaten in 
only a couple hours, even 30 minutes to an hour if you know what you're 
doing. If you decide to take your time, increase your stats, get new 
attacks and everything, it'll increase the gameplay, but you only need to 
get a little stronger and get one good Technique to really slaughter every 
person in the game with little ease. If you want a challenge, don't 
increase your stats that much, don't get any insanely good Techniques and 
have no gang members helping you, including Ryan. Max out the number of 
gang people on the screen and you'll be in for a challenge.

Q. Is there any Easter Eggs in the game?

A. Tons. I've noticed alot of the gang members in the game are all named 
after pop culture people, ranging from popular music singers, famous 
actors and even comic artists. Hell, Onizuka from the manga series 
Shounen Jun'ai Gumi and Great Teacher Onizuka is a Boss in this. (Named 
Otis, though. Japanese Version of the game had him as Onizuka.) Would've 
been cool if a attack he used was called Onibaku, heh heh. (I could be 
wrong, he may not be based off Onizuka, but with all the stuff in this 
game, I wouldn't be surprised.) I'm not real sure what else there is, 
though, except the massive amount of names, as well as some of the 
dialogue. Again, hopefully some people will inform me if I'm missing 
anything.

Q. Are there any major changes from the Japanese Version over ours? 

A. If you're thinking blood or something on those lines, no. The only 
changes are virtually the names of characters. They virtually removed the 
Japanese names of people and replaced them with English names. For '
example, Alex is actually called Kunio, which is a popular series of 
games in Japan under the Kunio-kun title, under the NES and SNES genre. 
From sports (Super Dodgeball for the GBA and NES features Kunio.) to even 
more Beat 'Em Up games, Kunio is one bad dude. Though, other than name 
changes, I haven't seen anything changed.

Q. Will a sequel be made?

A. I won't ruin the game for you if you haven't played it, but obviously 
if you beat the game, you'll be asking this, as does anyone after beating 
a great game. From the looks of it, yes, they will, but I don't recall 
River City Ransom having a sequel, unless they go for porting another one 
of the Kunio-kun games to the GBA that continues the street fighting 
action. Although, they could just make a new one...who knows. We'll have 
to wait and see, I guess.

Q. Is there a way to get Slick and the other gang bosses onto my team that 
I can't normally get?

A. Yup. At Merlin's Mystery, there's a Item called the Custom Char. Item. 
Buy this and when used, you'll have a list of all the playable characters 
in the game. Select them and then Save them to a File and bam, choose them 
when you play and they're yours.

Whew, ok, that's all cleared now. Next up, let's check out the screen 
you'll see while playing the game itself. First, we'll start with the 
upper left hand part of the screen and move clockwise:

Name - Shows your character's current name.

Stamina - The top bar represents how much Stamina you currently have. Blue 
is Best with 100% power, Green is Good with 75% power, Yellow is Fair with 
50% power and Red is Bad with 25% power.

Will Power - Determines how long you can fight after your Stamina is gone. 
When your Stamina is gone, you'll rely on Will Power to keep your going. 
Blue is Best with 100% power, Green is Good with 75% power, Yellow is Fair 
with 50% power and Red is Bad with 25% power.

Money - Shows you how much money you currently have on you.

Screen - Everything goes on here. Your current character, your friends, 
gang members, everything appears here. Here's what you'll see:

Character - The person you control at all times. Move him around and fight 
as him.

Ally - People who are with you. They will assist you while fighting.

Gang Members - Your enemy. Engage them in battle once they appear.

Weapons - Everyday ordinary objects laying around. Pick them up before 
your enemies do and have a ball with them.

Coins - Money dropped by fallen enemies. Collect it so you can buy Items 
with it.

NPCs - People walking around at Malls. They do nothing.

Damage - When you or an enemy is hit, you'll see a number appear overhead. 
This shows you how much damage you or the enemy has taken. Each person, 
including you, can only take so much damage before you are beaten. So if a 
person has, say 20 Stamina and you hit them for 5, then they will now have 
15 Stamina. Once it hits 0, they are dead. Same goes for you and your 
friends.

Text - Shows you what's being said at the moment. For the most part, 
you'll see random jibber jabber from the gang members, but it's also used 
when important story points are in effect.

Alright, there you go. Finally, let's examine the Shop Menus:

When you enter a shop, you'll see the name of the shop in the lower left 
hand corner, with a list of the available Items to the right and their 
price. For a complete list of what each Item does when bought, check out 
Section IX. Shop List for more. When you wish to purchase something, 
highlight it and then select "OK".

OK - Allows you to purchase an Item.

Cancel - Allows you to leave the Shop.

- B. Battle System . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ BASYS4.2 ] -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Battle System in River City Ransom is quite simple to grasp and figure 
out within a few minutes at most.

First, let's look at the basic fighting of the game. Your basic way of 
fighting consists of punching and Kicking your way through the various 
gang members. When you attack an opponent, you'll notice a number appear 
over their head. That means how much damage you've delt to them. Each 
opponent has a certain amount of Hit Points they have until they are 
defeated. So, if a person has, say, 30 Hit Points or Stamina as it's 
called here, once you deal 30 damage to them, they will be defeated. To 
increase your attack power, by eating certain foods or using certain 
Items, you can raise your stats and become stronger. Over time, you'll 
eventually be able to dispose of most gang members with a single blow!

Next up, Weapons. As you go from area to area in the game, you'll see 
various objects on the ground that you can pick up. When you do, you'll 
be able to use the object you acquired. This object will stay with you 
until an opponent hits you, you throw it or you die. By using Weapons, you 
can use them to your advantage to get an edge on your opponents in terms 
of reach for your attacks, power, etc. Each Weapon is good for something, 
some are better used and some are simply better if you just pick them up 
and throw them. Either way, use Weapons to your advantage, but to increase 
their power, make sure you increase your Weapon Stat.

Then we have Techniques. Each character in the game, except your basic 
street gang member, has at least one Technique that they use. By using a 
Technique, you can easily get the edge on any opponent and deal massive 
amounts of damage. With the right Techniques under your belt, you can 
become unstoppable, althrough some Techniques may and will make the game 
MUCH too easy for you, but it's your call. You can acquire Techniques by 
buying them at the Read All About It store, but each one is costly and you 
may end up dropping some serious cash on something that's not that great, 
so be careful.

Next, we have the people who help you. As you progress through the game, 
people may offer to join you, which is good, because it's a extra hand 
that's helping you take down the enemy. Each ally has their own ups and 
downs and the further in the game you go, the better the people who join 
you are. Each have their own Techniques and Stats, so choose wisely who 
you want to recruit. Some are easy to get, others, well, you'll have to 
have high Reputation, which you can acquire by running yourself into a 
wall over and over again, in order for them to join you.

Some other odds and ends are money. When you defeat an opponent, you'll 
see a bouncing coin appear. Grab this to obtain some money that you can 
use to buy various things with at Malls throughout River City. A nice tip, 
though, is if you're fighting a rather hard gang or if you just want to 
do this for whatever reason, you can make sure a new enemy doesn't appear 
by not picking up the money. You'll notice that when each person dies, 
their replacement doesn't appear until the money is collected or 
disappears. Speaking of enemies, you can change how many of them are on 
the screen at once, which helps you in deciding what type of challenge you 
want in the game, as well as friends helping you.

Finally, be sure to keep your Stamina high at all times while fighting and 
never let it fall into the red, as things will start to get bad. Master 
the fighting system early on, inputing Techniques correctly, figuring out 
what attacks for best for you and on the enemy and you'll be taking down 
Slick in no time at all. Other than that, not much else I can explain to 
you about the Battle System, so just go out, test it yourself and have fun 
with it!

- C. Weapons . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ WEAP4.3 ]-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Throughout the game, you'll encounter a wide variety of Weapons that you 
and your opponents can use. Here's a rundown on each of them:

Note: To make using Weapons better, be sure to get the Grand Slam 
Technique.

Weapon Name: Box.
Description: Basically like the Crate in every way.

Weapon Name: Bucket.
Description: A regular old Bucket that can be used for a Weapon or thrown 
onto a opponent's head.

Weapon Name: Brass Knuckles.
Description: A strong but slow Weapon, this is a prime choice to use, but 
you may not want to use it for long.

Weapon Name: Chain.
Description: A regular Chain that's used like a Whip. Very useful and fun 
to use, especially those of you liking Castlevania.

Weapon Name: Cone.
Description: A regular Cone used in constuction. Poor reach, so don't 
bother with it unless your feel like it.

Weapon Name: Crate.
Description: A regular Crate that's just laying around. Pretty strong, but 
there's better Weapons to use than this.

Weapon Name: Ladder.
Description: Probably the best Weapon to use in terms of length, this 
thing is long, but slow. Use it to take out a crowd of gang members fast.

Weapon Name: Long Chain.
Description: Just like the Chain, except it's much longer. Castlevania 
folks will love this one even better, heh heh.

Weapon Name: Pipe.
Description: A regular Pipe that's been turned into a Weapon. Slightly 
better than the Wooden Sword, it's still pretty good to carry around if 
you need a Weapon.

Weapon Name: Pole.
Description: A regular Pole used for...something. Anyway, it's a rather 
good Weapon with decent attack power.

Weapon Name: Rock.
Description: A regular Rock that has fair attack power, but it's better to 
just throw it

Weapon Name: Tire.
Description: A regular Tire that's pretty strong and when thrown, rolls on 
the ground and can even be ridden on.

Weapon Name: Trash Can.
Description: One of the best Weapons to use, even if it is slow. These 
things can also be used to trap opponents in if you throw them at them and 
they land on their head.

Weapon Name: Wooden Sword.
Description: A Sword that's used in training. In River City Ransom EX, 
it's a basic Weapon most gangs use and it has a ok reach, but don't rely 
on it.

= D. Reputation . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ REPUT4.4 ]=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Throughout the game, you'll have a hidden count of Reputation. What this 
does is determine if certain Bosses will join you or not. Depending on 
your actions in the game, your count will rise and fall. Here's a list of 
things to do to raise your Reputation and what to do to lower it:

Note: The highest your Reputation can go is 127, but since the game 
doesn't document this for you, you'll have to keep track of this yourself.

Raising Reputation:

- Defeat an entire gang while being honorable (No hitting when they're 
down, use various Techniques, etc.) and you'll gain some Reputation.

- Running into a wall increases your Reputation by 1.

- Recruiting an ally increases your Reputation by 16.

- Dying will increase your Reputation by 4.

- Locating secret characters increases your Reputation a little.

- Defeating a Boss increases your Reputation by 4.

- While on the ground, hold the Down Button to let an enemy hit you and 
your Reputation will increase a little.

Lowering Reputation:

- Attacking a Boss before they finish talking decreases your Reputation by 
16.

- Attacking an ally with a Weapon decreases your Reputation a little.

- Hitting an enemy while they're down decreases your Reputation a little.

- Using the same Technique over and over descreases your Reputation a 
little.

- Having an ally die decreases your Reputation a little.

- Defeating Bosses over 5 times will start to lower your Reputation a 
little.

On a side note, to trigger certain events in the game, such as meeting 
certain characters, you'll need the following:

- For Jinny, you need at most 120 Reputation for her to appear and you 
need to beat up Benny & Clyde at most 5 times.

- For Roxy, to meet her at River City High, you have to have at most 110 
Reputation when you first meet her after Grotto Mall at the start of the 
game.

- For Titus, Thor has to be in your group and your Reputation has to be 
about equal to what it was when Thor joined you for him to appear.

= V. The Characters Of The Story . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ TPCOT5 ] =
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Note: For Alex and Ryan, if either are in your gang, their stats are MUCH 
higher than what's listed. Also, to play as someone other than Alex or 
Ryan, you need to beat the game at least once and go to Merlin's Mystery 
and get the Custom Char. Item. This allows you to Save ANY character in 
the game and use them for your own, including others you couldn't get, 
including Slick himself!

Item.)

= VI. The Walkthrough . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [ THEWA6 ]=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Note: Unlike how I normally do this section in my other Walkthroughs, I'm 
just going to do the entire thing here as one giant section, as the game 
is far too short to chop each area up into using A. The Beginning, B. 
Cross Town High, etc. 

Also, I won't really give a recommendation on how much to train in each 
area. As long as you take the time and get your stats up, mainly Defense, 
Toughness and Strength, you'll be ok. Stamina and Will Power are also very 
vital. Punch and Kick you'll want to focus on if you can, but the rest you 
really won't need to upgrade as much as the above ones I just listed. 
Techniques are optional and VERY costly, so, buy them at your own leisure. 
The reason I won't give my recommendation for each area in the game, in 
terms of what area of power you should be at, is because if I did that, 
the game would be easier than it already is and you'd fly through it and 
bam, there's $30 down the drain, huh?

Finally, when you reach a Mall in the game, I suggest you check the data 
for each Mall in Section IX. Shop List to see what Items are available and 
what each does, so you get your money's worth and to figure out what gets 
you the best stats for whatever you wish.

Tip: New gang members will not appear until you collect the money dropped 
from the defeated member. Use this to your advantage if need be.

Thanks to Classic Gaming for hosting this, as it's theirs.

Side Note: If you think you can just breeze past all the Bosses and such 
in the game and go straight to Slick, you can't. You have to follow this 
Walkthrough on every step I mention in order to even be able to enter 
River City High.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- The Beginning                                                           -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The story is this: Alex and Ryan are two High School rivals, but friendly 
ones, in the sense of fighting. One day, the Dragon Twins took over River 
City High, Alex's school, inclosing everyone in the school and no one got 
in or out. Holding the city in fear, no one could stop their power, as the 
number their gang total reached far out did a small army. Alex, a boy who 
fights for what's right, had been absent from school the day it was taken 
over, so he is safe. Though, he decides to stop the Dragon Twins and free 
everyone, but first, he'll need help from his long time rival first...

Meanwhile, Ryan is done with his classes at Cross Town High and heads to 
his locker. Gettin ready to head home, he opens the locker to find a piece 
of paper from a boy named Slick, telling him he has his girlfriend and if 
he wants her back, he has to go to River City High. With the entire 
student body helping him and the Dragon Twins under his belt, things look 
really bad. Despite the odds, he rushes out of the school, only to bump 
into Alex...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Cross Town High                                                         -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Gary.

As you start the game, Ryan will relay what's going on to Alex. 
Afterwards, you'll be thrown into the game. Defeat the gang that's here 
and then head into the next area to the east.

Note: To get Gary, make sure you kill all the gang members when you first 
start the game in Cross Town High. Then, head over to Sticksville - 3rd 
Street and kill the gang members there. Afterwards, head back to Cross 
Town High and at the entrance to the school, Gary will be there. You can 
ONLY get Gary IF you are playing as Alex.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Sticksville - 3rd Street                                                -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Conan.

Eh, more of the same that you just encountered. Have fun with the weapons 
here and try chucking the Trash Can onto people for a funny moment. When 
you're ready, head north into the first Mall of the game.

Note: To get Conan, completely defeat the Generic Dudes three times and 
then head back to this area. Make sure the Generic Dudes are here and 
defeat them again and Conan will appear at the north exit. Take him along 
if you wish, as he AND the Generic Dudes will join you. He's not that 
strong, but if it's your first time playing, he'll help a little bit, even 
his gang members, who are INSANELY weak, so be careful. To "revive" them 
if they die, enter a new area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Grotto Mall                                                             -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stores In The Area: Latte Caffeine, Metro Bakery, Sushi Bar, Read All 
About It.

Note: Stores are listed in order from when you enter the area to the end 
of the area.

The first mall in the game offers quite alot to you, even though most 
things here will cost you an arm and a leg. Anyway, make sure to heal up
at the Latte Caffeine and to get stronger, but use the Sushi Bar to get 
REALLY strong. If needed, go to the Metro Bakery for take out Healing 
Items and to learn new Techniques or increase some of your stats. I 
suggest you spend...eh, maybe an hour tops gaining money to buy things and 
to increase your stats. That's IF you want to be strong. Otherwise, 10-15 
minutes should do. The best way to get money, though, is attempting to 
fight the Entrees over in Sticksville - Park Dr. to the east. They appear 
rarely there, but if you keep entering and exiting the screen, you'll 
increase the chances much faster.

They drop $7.00 each, which is INSANE for the start of the game when 
you're barely making $1.00 off three people. Just be warned, they are 
cowards and WILL run away at the SLIGHTEST sign of fighting, so make sure 
you go in, fists a flying. When you're all ready and feel like you've done 
enough, head to the east into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Nothing really here, ignore the entrance to the north that leads to 
Sherman Park, IF you aren't Ryan, otherwise, head east into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Rick.

If you're playing as Ryan, when you enter, you may find Rick here. If not, 
keep exiting and entering until you do. Once you find him, let him join 
you, as like Gary, he's a great fighter for early on in the game. When 
you're done, exit Sherman Park and head east into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Sticksville - 2nd Street                                                -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Be careful in this area, as it appears construction is going on to the 
road and the large pit you see can instantly kill you if you fall into it. 
It's handy to kill people with, but you don't get money and the gangs 
here shouldn't really require you to do this, so, just kill them and get 
the money. Make sure you kill everyone here, as afterwards, the first 
Boss appears.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Moose                                                             -

Techniques: Shuriken Run.

Reward: $4.20.

Strategy: First, let Moose finish talking before you fight him, so that
your Reputation isn't hurt. When he's done, get ready for your first 
challenge in the game. Moose is a rather good fighter and can easily take 
you down if you aren't careful and/or prepared enough. Moose's special 
attack, the Shurken Run is rather deadly, so, again, be careful of it. 
Over all, he's not someone that'll take you all day to beat, so don't 
worry about it. With gang members, it'll take even less time to beat him 
and your chances increase.

After you beat him, you'll learn about Rocko, who's waiting for you in 
the WSL Warehouse. So, now, head north into the area Moose was blocking 
before.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stores In The Area: Read All About It, French Italia, Mao's Place, Metro 
Bakery, JCS Pharmacy.

Note: Stores are listed in order from when you enter the area to the end 
of the area.

Welcome to the next Mall in the game. Once again, use this time to get a 
bit stronger, restock up on Items you may need to take with you, buy some 
new Techniques, whatever. Again, an hour for those of you wanting insane 
power, 10-15 minutes for those of you wanting to refill your energy and 
get a tad stronger. When you're ready again, head east into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Nothing's here...for now, except a cutscene, involving Roxy, Slick's 
Ex-Girlfriend, who tells you how she's on your side now. After she tells 
you she'll see you later, head north into the next area, IF you want to 
fight two optional Bosses.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you enter this place, you'll encounter Benny and Clyde. Get ready to 
fight two on one, unless Ryan/Alex or some people are in your gang. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Strength: 22.
Agility: 30.
Jump: 30.
Willpower: 38.
Stamina: 76.

Techniques: Boomerang.

Reward: $4.50 x2.

Streategy: Let them talk first and finish before you fight, just like with 
Moose, then affterwards, go nuts on them. Both use Weapons to fight, which 
is what their special Technique relies on. Their Technique, Boomerang, is 
when they'll throw the Weapon at you, but then it comes back, like a 
Boomerang. Watch out for it, but the best way to win this is to hit them 
so they drop their Weapon and then go nuts on them. Without their Weapons, 
they'll fall quite fast, depending on your level of strength.

Once they fall, they aren't done yet and you'll be meeting them later on 
now. After this, exit the area and back at Capital Ave. Bridge, head east 
into the next area.

area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- WSL Co. Warehouse - West                                                -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Watch out for the hole in the ground here, as it looks like they're doing 
work on this area as well. Your goal is to the east, which is the 
Warehouse. Once there, enter the door you see.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

You have a rather large battlefield in this area to fight in, so have fun 
with it. Take out the gang here and afterwards, Rocko will appear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Rocko                                                             -

Willpower: 42.
Stamina: 252.

Techniques: Charge It.

Reward: $5.40.

Strategy: Like the others, let Rocko talk first, then let your fists do 
the talking. Rocko's rather strong, especially his Charge It which can 
definitely make you see some birdies if you're hit by it. Take your time 
with him, slam him with your best attacks, heal if you have to and he'll 
eventually give up. When he does, he'll tell you about Blade, who's 
waiting for you at Sherman Park.

After this, go ahead and backtrack to Sticksville Park Dr. and head north 
into Sherman Park, when you're ready. You can increase your stats some 
more if you want, but it's your call of course.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Sherman Park                                                            -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Blade, Gary. (If not previously acquired.)

As you enter this area, if you're playing as Alex only, Gary may appear 
here to help you. If not, Blade will be here, ready to challenge you.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Blade                                                             -

Willpower: 122.
Stamina: 122.

Techniques: Chain Chump.

Reward: $7.20.

Strategy: Again, let him talk, then fight him. Blade, one of the leaders 
of the Zombie's, is not too bad, but he can be, depending on your level of 
strength. Blade's special Technique is Chain Chump, which allows him to 
throw a Chain at you, wrapping it around you. Like having a Trash Can on 
your head, you can't attack until you are hit or run into a wall or 
something. Anyway, make sure you disarm him and then just beat the crap 
out of him, as like Benny & Clyde, without his Weapon, he's worthless. 
After he falls, he'll tell you about Thor over at the Vacant Tire Factory.

After this, if your Reputation is high enough, Blade will offer to join 
you. Once this is done with, either if he's with you or not, head back to 
the WSL Warehouse where you fought Rocko and this time, exit through the 
door he was blocking to enter the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this area, if you defeat all the gang members here, Moose will appear 
again for a rematch.

Strategy: Again, let him talk, then take him down. He's not any stronger 
than he was when you first encountered him, so take him down and marvel 
with how much stronger you've become. 

After the fight, head east into the next area.

Stores In The Area: Merlin's Mystery.
People To Recruit: None.

Not much here, just head east into the next area after taking out the gang 
members here if you decide to.

In the next part of this area, head east, killing gang members if you wish 
and to find a secret shop, hit the Up Button after the fourth light in the 
tunnel. This is THE shop for you, but it's VERY expensive. Just make sure 
you come back later when you are loaded with cash. Whenever you're ready, 
exit the store and head east into the next area.

Just take out all the gang members here, then Turk, another Zombie, will 
appear.

- Boss: Turk                                                              -

Willpower: 114.

Techniques: Nitro Port.

Reward: $7.80.

Strategy: Let Turk talk, then fight him. If anything, Turk has Agility on 
his side and it even favors into his special Technique, Nitro Port, where 
he teleports in front of you, hitting you. It's not possible to dodge it, 
but you can block it. Either way, just make sure you defeat him before he 
can do this enough times, rather, even once and you'll be ok. 

Note: If you fight Turk 5 times and win, (Just beat him, exit the area, 
beat the gang members, he'll appear again, repeat.) Jesse will appear with 
him. Both will fight you, although Jesse is a joke. When you win, if your 
Reputation is high enough, both of them will join you.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Jesse                                                             -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Mojo.

In this area, take out all the gang members, then Mojo will appear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Mojo                                                              -

Willpower: 122.
Stamina: 142.

Techniques: Slam Punk.

Reward: $7.50.

Strategy: Let him talk first, then go ahead and take him out, but if you 
get too close to him, he'll use his Technique, the Slam Punk. He's rather 
strong, especially with this move, so be careful around him. Just be sure 
you've been regularly increasing Alex/Ryan in terms of power and you'll be 
ok. Be warned, you are nearing the end of the game, so you will want to be 
ready.

Note: If your Reputation is high enough after you defeat Mojo, he'll offer 
to join you.

When you're done here, head north into the next Mall in the game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Flatirons Mall                                                          -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stores In The Area (1): Read All About It, Latte Caffeine, Sweet Tooth.
Stores In The Area (2): Happy Feet, Meat Market, Toys "B" We, CD Cellar.

Note: Stores are listed in order from when you enter the area to the end 
of the area.

Alright, again, I suggest you spend some time here and stock up on more 
Healing Items, heal up, get stronger, maybe get a new Technique or two, 
then move on. Spend maybe an hour here tops, just going and getting money 
and spending it here. If you want to go to the next part of the Mall, it's 
to the east and it holds even more stores. When you're ready, head east 
in the second part of Flatirons Mall into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Downtown                                                                -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Nothing much here, so plow the road along past this construction sight and 
head east into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Thor.

Again, nothing really here, just take out the gang members, then head 
north into the Vacant Tire Factory.

Inside, head east and if you can't jump across the gap here, there's a 
door below where you can enter and it'll bring you up to the top part of 
the otherside. Fight your way across and head east into the final part of 
this area.

In this room, there's another hole here, so you have to be careful. Don't 
jump across the hole AT ALL and instead, hop up onto the grates above you. 
Kill all the gang members here, then, Thor will appear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Thor                                                              -

Willpower: 170.
Stamina: 164.

Techniques: Glide Chop, Hyperguard.

Reward: $9.30.

Strategy: If you thought Turk was bad, Thor's worse. Being the leader of 
the Zombies, he definitely lives up to being the God Of Lightning and his 
Glide Chop will leave you begging for mercy. Be careful that you're NEVER 
too close to the hole or else you're screwed. Just make sure you take him 
down as fast as possible because you don't want him to hit you once and 
then have yourself fall down into the pit and die. Just keep your assault 
up, make sure you're never near the hole and you'll be ok.

Note: If your Reputation is high enough, Thor will offer to join you. If 
this happens, you'll also unlock being able to meet Titus. Head back to 
the Waterfront Mall to find him. The next part comes after defeating Ivan.

When you're done, head east to exit this place.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Back Alley                                                              -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

If you've been playing solo, as in just as Alex or Ryan and not having 
them with you, the other will appear and want to challenge the other to a 
friendly fight.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Alex/Ryan                                                         -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stats: All stats vary based on your data for that character.

Techniques: Whatever your Save File for them has.

Reward: Varies based on how much money the saved data character has. For 
an INSANE amount of money, load your character up as a clone to fight and 
you'll make however much money your character has!

Strategy: Let Alex/Ryan talk, then go ahead and fight them. Both use their 
signature moves, Dragon Kick and Mach Punch, but neither are that hard to 
beat, so don't worry, especially if you have people with you.

After the fight, head east into the next and final Mall of the game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Oak Hill Mall                                                           -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruite: Jinny.
Stores In The Area (1): Latte Caffeine, Metro Bakery, Read All About It.
Stores In The Area (2): Read All About It, Metro Bakery, JCS Pharmacy.
Stores In The Area (3): Health Club.

Note: Stores are listed in order from when you enter the area to the end 
of the area.

Alright, this is the final Mall in the game, so I suggest you power up as 
much as you can, buy anything you may need, whatever. Explore all three 
parts of the Mall, especially the Health Club to be healed. Whenever you 
are ready, if you went to the second part of Oak Hill Mall, I'm sure you 
net Shel by now. After she talks to you, she runs off. If you wish to get 
Ivan, the person guarding River City High to join you, you'll have to do 
the following: First, head back to Flatirons Mall and find Shel again. She 
mentions Abby, the person she rescued, is shopping somewhere. Head back to 
Oak Hill Mall to find Abby and once you find her, Ivan will join you once 
you beat him.

Anyway, at the third area of Oak Hill Mall, you may have met up with Benny 
& Clyde again, if you fought them previously.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Benny & Clyde                                                     -

Reward: $4.50 x2.

Strategy: Let them talk and then beat them senseless. Like Moose, they 
aren't any stronger than before, so make short work of them now.

Note: If you defeat Benny & Clyde four times and your Reputation is 
high, Jinny will appear. She'll tell you to stop picking on the weak and 
offer her services to you. If you tell her yes, she just runs off, saying 
she'll do it later, but it you tell her you aren't sure, she'll hand you 
$1,000!

After all this and when you're ready, head east into the next area.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: Rex, Ted.

Nothing's really here, so, head east into the final area.

Note: To get Rex, clear out the area of all the gang members. If you 
happen to have only one other person with you, Rex will appear and ask to 
join you. Though, if you happen to have three Zombies with you, Rex will 
actually fight you. He's a rather strong fighter, but if you refuse his 
help, exit the area, re-enter and fight and kill the gang members again, 
Ted will appear and offer to join you. He's better than Rex, so it's up 
to you on who you want to take along.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, you made it, but the fight is not over yet. Clear the area of gang 
members, then Ivan will appear.

Willpower: 178.

Techniques: Head Bomb, Headbutt.

Reward: $9.90.

Strategy: He's not guarding River City High for nothing. After he talks, 
take him down with your strongest attacks and I hope you maybe have an 
ally or two to help you. Ivan's Headbutt and Head Bomb Techniques are 
very strong, so you may want to have an ally take the hits for you if 
possible. Anyway, keep your assault up, heal if you have to and have 
Healing Items and you'll gain access to River City High.

Note: If you met Abby, then Ivan will ask to join you. Take him, as he's 
VERY strong. Also, if you previously met Titus, exit this area, come back, 
kill the gang members and he'll appear to you again.

Agility: 23.
Jump: 45.
Willpower: 140.
Stamina: 236.

Techniques: Top Spin, Wheel Throw.

Reward: $10.50.

Strategy: Let Otis talk, then get ready to fight him. His Techniques, the 
Wheel Throw and Top Spin are very strong, so be on your guard at all 
times. Having an Ally or two here helps greatly, but by now, you should be 
too strong for these guys, so just wreck him as badly as you can. 

After the fight, head through the door Otis was nearby and you'll go up to 
the second floor. Just be careful of the Basketball hoops here and make 
your way up to the next area to the north.

- River City High - 2nd Floor                                             -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Nothing really here, so just kill the gang members if you want and head up 
to the next floor to the north.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- River City High - 3rd Floor                                             -

People To Recruit: Tex.

Note: If you are Alex and met Titus, Roxy will appear and talk to you.

Clear the area of gang members and Tex will appear. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Tex                                                               -

Reward: $9.00.

Strategy: Let Tex talk, then take him on. He uses a Wooden Katana to fight 
with, so watch out, as his Technique uses them. He can hit multiple times 
with Pulper, so be careful. Disarm him and just take him out, as you 
should be more than powerful at this point.

Note: If Ivan is with you, Tex will offer to join you IF you have an open 
slot. If not, he'll talk and then leave.

When you're done, head north up to the next area of River City High.

Alright, here comes the final Bosses in the game before Slick. Clear the 
area of the gang members here and then the Dragon Twins appear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Randy, Andy & Otis                                                -

Willpower: 140.
Stamina: 236.

Techniques: Bat Fang (Otis.) Bike Kick, (Randy, Andy.) Dragon Knee, 
(Randy.) God Fist, (Andy.) Pulper (Otis.) Twin Kick. (Randy, Andy.)

Reward: $11.70, $11.50, $10.50.

Strategy: If there's a Zombie with you, Otis will come in to even the 
odds. Randy and Andy are very tough, so stay on your guard. Randy uses 
Dragon Knee, a powerful Kick and Andy uses God Fist, a strong uppercut. 
Just keep your strength up and go nuts on these guys and you'll take them 
down. Also, Otis isn't any tougher than he originally was, but still, 
having him on top of the Dragon Twins is going to definitely be a 
challenge, so be careful.

You SHOULD be strong enough to do so and if you find yourself hurting 
afterwards, I suggest you go back to Oak Hill Mall, heal up, get stronger 
and then come back for Slick. Either way, when you're ready, if you 
happened to tell Jinny yes in joining you, after beating the Dragon Twins, 
head to the west and enter the one door you can and you'll find Cyndi! 
Afterwards, go ahead and head east to the final area of the game and the 
final fight.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- River City High - Rooftop                                               -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

People To Recruit: None.

Once you reach the Rooftop, Slick will appear and you'll begin the fight 
against him to save Cyndi and River City High.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Boss: Slick                                                             -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stats:

Punch: 127.
Kick: 117.
Weapon: 128.
Defense: 115.
Toughness: 118.
Strength: 127.
Agility: 128.
Jump: 124.
Willpower: 255.
Stamina: 255.

Techniques: Acro Circus, Killer Kick, Slick Trick.

Reward: Cyndi and River City High!

Strategy: Alright, I strongly hope your stats are insanely high for this, 
because Slicks are. At this point, screw Reputation and everything else, 
if you want, bash Slick as soon as you see him, unless you want to hear 
what he says. Just be careful, because Slick has a DEADLY Technique on 
him, which is the Slick Trick. Apparently, he can use telekentic powers to 
raise all the Weapons on the ground and to hurl them ALL at you. This can 
REALLY hurt, so I suggest you nail him before he can get it off. He also 
can use Killer Kick, a deadly jump Kick and Acro Jump as well. If your 
stats aren't very high, you'll have a hell of a time here, but with your 
friends helping, hopefully it'll go easier, especially if you have some 
Healing Items on you as well. Just keep your assault up and this bad boy 
will go down, vowing for revenge like any good villain.

Congratultions! You've beaten Slick, saved Cyndi AND saved River City 
High! Enjoy the ending!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Ending                                                                  -
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you defeat Slick, watch the ending and after the credits role, wait 
until the music ends and Save your data. Perhaps now there will be a 
sequel...?

Well, that about does it for me. Thanks for reading my Walkthrough and I 
hope it helped you in the long run. So, until next time, later!

possible. Here's the following people:
