(1)INTRODUCTION

This FAQ is the very first I have ever written and hopefully not the last.
It covers the supposed sequel to the classic game that is Mike Tyson's
Punch-Out!!. Power Punch II is not respected by many for its difficulty. For
this reason only, I have decided to help people out in this game and perhaps
most of you will see Power Punch II in a different light after reading this.
It is a fun game, but not as addictive as MTPO!! of course. It is my hope that
everyone who has been frustrated by this game, finally defeats it. With
determination and the help of this new FAQ, Power Punch II does not stand a
chance.

*I would like to dedicate this FAQ to my great aunt Helene, I know she is now
in heaven. No one will ever forget the joy you brought to people, you will
never be forgotten. I will always love you.

******************************************************************************
(2)HISTORY

Power Punch II's history dates back to early 1991. Mike Tyson and Don King had
agreed on a sequel to the classic Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!. By June 1991 the
sequel was set for a release in 1992. The game then called Mike Tyson's
Intergalactic Power Punch, was supposed to have Tyson taking on aliens and
other creatures, since humans could not touch him (what about Douglas?). But
of course, 1991 would prove to be a terrible year for Mike Tyson. Just as he
was preparing for his upcoming fight with the undisputed heavyweight champion
Evander Holyfield, controversy arose. He had been accused of raping a Miss
Black America beauty contestant. Tyson continued training despite the powerful
accusation placed upon him. It looked as though he would get the chance to
regain "his" belts, however a rib injury forced him to miss the fight. Soon
afterwards, Mike was sentenced to three years in prison for rape in 1992.

Nintendo's dream of a second Tyson game was tarnished. James "Buster" Douglas
had been the cause of Mike Tyson being replaced by Mr. Dream in Punch-Out!!.
Now however, it was a rape conviction that cancelled the release of Mike
Tyson's Intergalactic Power Punch. Never a company to back down from making
money however, Nintendo decided to keep the game alive by calling it Power
Punch II. A few changes would have to be implemented into the game. Instead
of controlling "Iron" Mike Tyson, a new fighter called Mark "Tough Guy" Tyler
took his place. Tyson's facial features had to be toned down slightly, thus
Nintendo removed Tyson's trademark shaved line in his hair. His menace was
also taken away, in order to make Tyler seem more humble to fellow gamers. Of
course the major change was the switch in Tyson's boxing trunks colour.
Instead of black, Tyler wears pink (again to give him more of a friendly
image). Finally, Tyson's promoter Don King had his lightning bolted hair
removed completely.

Without Mike Tyson in the title, gamers rarely picked up this game and
Nintendo had failed miserably. Power Punch II absolutely bombed as a sequel
to one of the greatest games ever made. Tyson fans like me still tried it
out though and played it for no other reason than to control Tyson in pink.

******************************************************************************
(3)GAME STORY

Mark "Tough Guy" Tyler is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world in
the year 2006. He is viewed as the best ever (step aside Tyson). He has won
the gold medal at the Olympics and has dominated the division with a
spectacular 33-0 record with 30 wins coming by way of knock out. After his
ninth successful title defense, Tyler arrogantly makes a bold statement that
will change his life as he knows it. "Tough Guy" states that he can beat
"anyone, anywhere, anytime". Such a profound statement has not been heard of
since Mike Tyson said the same and was then tamed by James "Buster" Douglas in
his tenth defense of the title. Tyler's promoter Don King (who finally lost
his electric hair after getting struck by lightning on one fateful night, how
ironic), backs up his fighter in saying that absolutely no one on the face of
the earth stands a chance against his man.

Meanwhile, an alien Don King reading these quotes in a Ring magazine article,
has a sudden idea. He sees the confidence in Tyler and wants to give him a
worthy challenge for once. Alien Don invites Mark to join the IGBF, the
Intergalactic Boxing Federation which comprises of super alien, mutant and
cyborg boxers. Mark and Don agree on the deal and are ready to prove that
Tyler is in fact the best fighter in the entire Universe. Will Tyler succeed
in becoming "the baddest man in the Universe"?. Only you can help him reach
his ultimate goal and seal his status as the greatest of all time.

******************************************************************************
(4)RULES/CONTROLS

(RULES)
The IGBF rules differ greatly from the official boxing rules. There are only
three rounds per fight which is exactly like the amateur level of boxing. The
major difference lies in the timing of each round. There are only 60 seconds
per round in the IGBF. The rules have simply changed in order to make
things harder for Mark Tyler, who is used to fighting for three minutes per
round on earth. This does not matter much though, because once Mark learns of
each of his opponents' weaknesses, 60 seconds per round will seem quite
reasonable. When an opponent is knocked down three times in a round, Tyler
will win by TKO. If an opponent is knocked down a maximum of four times, he
will be KNOCKED OUT. The same applies for Mark Tyler.

(CONTROLS)
There are many different kinds of punches that Tyler can execute. Here is the
list of his fighting arsenal with instructions as to how to perform each move:

Left uppercut= Up and (B)
Right uppercut= Up and (A)

Left body hook= (B)
Right body hook= (A)

Low left body blow= Down and (B)
Low right body blow= Down and (A)

POWER PUNCH= Select (only once Mark receives one or more)

-Here are some other moves that can be performed at anytime during the game:

Block= Hold down

Dodge= Press Left or Right, in the direction you want Mark to move

Getting back up= Rapidly tap (B) and (A) simultaneously

Tired?= Press Start (only when a break is needed)

******************************************************************************
(5)TRAINING SHIPS

Here is what determines how a player will fare in this hard game. It is the
training ships that can either give Mark much needed boxing attributes or
leave him out of shape with no real chance for long-term success. I once
struggled in the training ships, however eventually figured them out. First
of all it is important to know how the training robot operates. On his Left
hand is a Red blocking glove and on his right, a Pink one. Mr. Robotto's
blocking gloves will glow during the training ships, one at a time of course.
Here is the trick, when Robotto's Red glove glows, the (A) button must always
be used along with up or down depending on where the glove is glowing. Now,
with the pink glove, it is the (B) button that must be used at all times.

Here is a list of when to use a certain punch on Robboto in order to connect
with the glowing glove:

High Red glove= Up and (A)
High Pink glove= Up and (B)

Middle Red glove= (A)
Middle Pink glove= (B)

Low Red glove= Down and (A)
Low Pink glove= Down and (B)


In order to hit a glowing glove, anticipation must be used. Those who have
faced and defeated Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!! definitely have an edge. Tyson
would flash before throwing an uppercut and in this game one of Robotto's
gloves will flash for a longer period of time. The key to gaining energy
points for stamina (heart), power (fist) and speed (boots) is to hit
Robotto's glowing glove five times in a row without missing. This combination
will stun Robotto and his entire body will glow purple. At this point
Mark must punch Robotto and his head will pop up. That sixth punch is very
significant, because it will give Tyler extra energy for his next fight. On
average Mark must score four or five six punch combinations in order to have
any kind of chance of winning. The best I have done was scoring ten six-punch
combinations (Feb 22). The maximum amount of six-punch combinations that can
be scored is 10 in most cases. Keep your eyes peeled for the glowing glove
and then pounce on it with the appropriate controls. With practice your
reflexes should improve and the training ships will become the least of your
worries.

Remember that if you are tired and want a break you can actually press start
to pause the game while training. Also if you have achieved a reasonable
amount of success in a particular training ship, you can skip the rest of 
the training time by pressing select and then choosing skip training.
I recommend skipping the rest of a training ship only when all three boxing
attributes are completely full. I found out about all of this today (Jan 21)
after receiving the game from an e-bay seller and it included the box and
instruction manual. The information was obviously found in the manual. Also
if Tyler has missed a glowing glove early on, try correcting the mistake
with the proper punch immediately and you may be able to recover the supposed 
miss, before Robotto attempts his next glowing glove sequence.

(+)If Tyler has full energy in all three of his boxing attributes by the third
training ship, his opponents will drop like lemmings with very few punches.
Almost all will lose in the very first round alone! Sweet!!

******************************************************************************
(6)OPPONENT STRATEGIES


((((((((((((((((((((((((((SOLAR CHAMPIONSHIP))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))


9763 BORG

This human cyborg boxer is the first opponent and obviously the easiest. When
the fight begins let him come down and don't move a muscle. Borg will now
throw a fast jab followed by a swinging hook, remain standing, don't
worry about Tyler getting damaged. After throwing the swinging punch, Borg's
back will be turned towards Tyler and as soon as his body turns back to a
vertical position, hit him with a left or right body hook (B) or (A). If done
correctly Tyler will be awarded a power punch. At this point Borg may throw
one or two swinging punches, but continue standing in front of him while
blocking those one or two punches. Borg will repeat his opening routine with
the fast jab and swinging punch and you must again wait until he turns back to
a vertical position. Now you can hit him with a body hook in order to get a
second power punch. Borg will throw one or two more swinging punches
afterwards which you must block. Finally Borg will once again throw a quick
jab followed by a swinging punch, wait for him to turn back into a vertical
position and then punch him with a body hook for a third power punch. It is
here where Borg will move back and tilt his head from side to side. As he is
coming back down, nail him with a power punch. This will make him glow and he
will be considered knocked down.

When Borg gets back up he will come back down towards you and as he does, hit
him with 8 body hooks. This will make him move back up and tilt his head from
side to side like before, as he comes back down, smash him with a power punch.
He will once again glow and be considered knocked down. Once he gets back up
again wait for him to come down and then hit him with 8 body hooks in order to
make him move back and once again tilt his head. As he comes back down deliver
the third and final power punch to beat 9763 BORG by TKO in the first round.

(+)It does not often occur that there is a strategy that enables everyone to
reach the same time. Fortunately, today (Feb 22) I was able to discover a way
of beating 9763 Borg at 39 Round 1. When Borg comes down to fight, give him
seven uppercuts to the head (fast, but not too fast or he will block). Now
as usual, place Tyler in a blocking position in order to block 9763 Borg's
fast jab and swinging hook. When he turns around after throwing the swinging
hook, nail him immediately with a body hook to get a power punch. Borg will
now back up and tilt his head from side to side. As he comes down, deliver
the power punch to knock him down at 53.

Now as Borg comes back down to resume the contest, give him six uppercuts
(a little bit before he has completely made his way back down). Place Tyler
in a blocking position and block the fast jab and swinging punch. Once Borg
has turned around into a vertical position, connect with a body hook. As a
second power punch is received, 9763 Borg will move back up and tilt his
head. Wait for him to come back down a bit and unleash the power punch to
knock him down for a second time at 46.

Repeat the same strategy used for the second knockdown and 9763 Borg will be
toast at 39 of Round 1, TKO. If your are just a bit faster with the punches
and deliver the power punches perfectly on time, it is possible to reach 40.
Keep trying and you will succeed!

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


DEREC NODDEN

This guy is dangerous and therefore the best way to defeat him is to avoid
standing toe to toe with him. As Derec comes down to fight, move from side to
side to make him follow Tyler. Now as Derec is approaching from the left or
right, make Tyler move to the left corner of the screen if Nodden is coming
that way. This way, when Mark is on the left he can throw a body hook and
when he is on the right side with Derec coming moving from left to right, he
can throw another body hook. Continue this technique for the entire fight,
moving from right to left, left to right and punching Derec to the body
everytime he approaches. This will keep Derec at bay and he will not be able
to catch up to you and throw his massive punches. A TKO in the second or KNOCK
OUT in the third is possible with this technique. Never stay in one spot and
all will work out just fine. Hit and move, hit and move!

(+)It is possible to obtain power punches on this opponent and fortunately I
I just figured this out today by accident (Jan 29). This strategy is very
precise and difficult to execute at times, however it is the key for a first
round TKO victory. Before the fight begins, place Tyler in the left corner
of the screen and hold the left button to keep him there. Once Derec moves
to the left and is lined up with Tyler, continue holding left and unleash a
body hook. Now, proceed to the right corner and keep on holding right until
Nodden is lined up with Tyler and then unleash another body hook. If this
was done correctly, a power punch will appear. If not, you might not have
been completely lined up with Nodden before throwing the body hook.

Now, proceed to the left corner again, however do this while nailing Nodden
with some punches, this will pave the way for a quicker finish and should be
repeated often. Once Tyler is in the left corner, hold left until Nodden is
lined up, then connect with a body hook. Proceed back to the right corner
while landing some punches and then holding right to stay in the corner.
When Derec is lined up with Tyler, nail him with a body hook to obtain a
second power punch. Repeat the above strategy twice more in order to get a
total of four power punches. Now, the only way the power punches have an
effect on Nodden is in the right corner of the screen, for some reason.
Thus, move to the right corner and hold right until Derec is just about
lined up with Mark, then nail him with a power punch (he will glow).
Whenever you want to use a power punch it must be done in the right corner
when Nodden is lined up for the punch. All four power punches can be used for
the first knockdown at around 43(fastest) or less. Or as I prefer, it is best
to use one for the first knockdown, two for the second and another one for
the TKO.

A Round 1 victory is not easy, however if you really want it, it can be done.
Avoid rushing your punches too much or Derec may backoff. Performing well in
training is also a huge benefit.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


ALPHA BONEHEAD

To begin, watch Bonehead as he makes his way down. Remain in the middle and
land four uppercuts in order to get a power punch. Not too fast though or he
will block. Alpha will lose an extra energy point if he is hit just before
his feet are planted in front of Tyler. Thus, always watch Bonehead as he
makes his way down and start punching him a little bit before he stops moving.
After the four uppercuts have landed, place Tyler into a blocking position
in order to block Alpha's first wild punch. Alpha will throw a second punch,
however instead of blocking it, dodge it slightly to the left in order to
avoid it. Right after Alpha has thrown the second high punch, line up with
him and unleash the power punch as soon as Bonehead is back into a vertical
position. Once the power punch connects, Alpha must glow and then Tyler must
land four uppercuts to his head (fast but not too fast as usual). If the
combination was well executed, a second power punch will be awarded. Now,
stay in the center while blocking Alpha's first punch, then dodge his second
and come back with a power punch like before. Bonehead will glow and you must
once again hit him with four uppercuts while remaining in the middle, in
order to get a third power punch. Place Tyler into a blocking position and
block his first high punch and then dodge his second one. Come back with a
power punch at the appropriate time, followed by four uppercuts as always to
get a final power punch. At this point, stay to the right as Bonehead is
temporarily stunned and then come back to the center and hit him with three
uppercuts. Repeat this over and over again, going from the right to the left
to create an opening in order to fire three uppercuts. Always look to see
that Alpha's hands have dropped when doing so, otherwise he will block the
punches. Moving from the right to the left, a little bit past the center
area of the ring, drops his guard everytime. Alpha will eventually go down
to the mat for the first time.

As Mr. Bonehead gets off the canvas and walks down towards Tyler, remain in
the center and land four uppercuts before he stops moving down. Now, block
Alpha's first wild punch and dodge his second one slightly to the left.
Follow this with a power punch as soon as Alpha has turned around, then land
four uppercuts as usual. At this point, stay at the right until Alpha is no
longer stunned and then come back to the center landing three uppercuts.
Move from the right to the left and connect with three uppercuts each time.
Repeat this until he is down again and remember to look for Bonehead's guard
to be dropped in order for this to work.

All that has to be done for the remainder of the fight, is to continue using
the same strategy used in Round number 1, if Alpha has not been defeated in
that round. It will only take two power punches most of the time to knock him
down the third time and two more to knock him down the fourth time. In this
way, Bonehead will be beat in the second round by KO, or if not, by TKO.
Remember, if Alpha is blocking a lot, keep moving from the right corner to
the left of the ring and he will open up.

(+)Although a Round 1 victory is possible, it requires having trained well
for the Solar Championship. Tyler must score at least 8 or 9 six-punch
combinations in training, in order to have the necessary power to rock Mr.
Bonehead.

Now, the regular strategy can still be followed up until the second knockdown
which should take place at 25, 24, 23 or 22. The first knockdown must occur at
39, 38 or 37 to have a shot at a first round TKO. Once Alpha gets back up from
the second knockdown and starts making his way down (count two of his steps
and then punch), land four uppercuts. Wait a little bit at the right corner as 
Bonehead recovers and then go back into the center and land another four 
uppercuts. From here on out, travel from the right to the left until Alpha 
drops his guard, keep moving until he does so. Land three uppercuts each time
and then go back right and back to the left landing another three uppercuts. 
After about six sets of the above strategy, Alpha will fall for the final 
time. Beat him in Round 1 and you will become a true Power Punch II champion.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~GALACTIC CHAMPIONSHIP~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


HELMUT SKULL

The biker skeleton is all about defense, but there is a way to open him up. As
he comes down to fight, wait until he is positioned in front of Tyler. Now,
throw a body hook that must hit him and then block his swing punch and connect
with another body hook. If this was successful, a power punch will be earned.
Now remain in front of Helmut Skull and land a body hook. Helmut will throw a
swinging punch like before which you must block. Prevent his jab by giving him
a body hook after blocking his swing punch. A second power punch will be
earned. Give Helmut a body hook once again and block the swinging punch.
Follow this with another body hook. A third power punch will be earned. At
this point, land a body hook and block Helmut's swing punch and then unleash
the power punch as soon as Helmut turns around after throwing his swinging
punch (into a vertical position, this is done very quickly). If the power
punch connects correctly, Helmut Skull will glow. Now, give Helmut a body hook
and then block his swing punch and as soon as he turns back into a vertical
position, nail him with another power punch. Helmut Skull will glow for a
second time and now you must land a body hook, then block his swing punch and
land the power punch as he turns around. This will make him glow and will
knock him out cold at around the 48 second range or lower of Round 1.

If this seems tricky, the hit and move techique can be used to win by decision
or late knock out. If you want the fastest finish though, the above strategy
is your best bet.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


LEX LUMPBLOCKER

Lex is very defensive as his namesake suggests. However there is a clever way
to open up the barbaric bastard. As the bell rings and Lumpblocker shows
movement in his legs, proceed to the left corner and wait there for him. Nail
him with an uppercut followed by a body hook, a power punch should be earned.
Continuously body hook Lex in the left corner at a somewhat fast pace until
he throws a wild punch. After doing so, he will seem stuck in the left corner
and Tyler must capitalize. Land left and right body hooks at will, alternating
between the two at a fast, but not ultra fast rate or Lex will snap out of his
trance. Eventually Lex's seizure will fade and he will try slugging it out.
Try to land quick body hooks regardless until he falls, or move out of the
corner a bit if he is blocking too much. Then go back and punch him again.
An uppercut followed by a body hook leads to a power punch each time, so do
this whenever you want a power punch. Only do so if Tyler's boxing attributes
are not close to being full by the end of the second Training Ship. If Mark
is fully powered or near to it, expect Lumpblocker to get knocked down at
one of the following times 43 to 39. If he has less power 38 to 35 will most
likely be the result, meaning that Tyler should acquire two power punches
for good measure.

Once Lex gets back up, get back into the left corner and use the same
strategy as for the first knockdown, trying to trap Lex in the corner. With
great body hook precision, Lumpblocker will fall in ten seconds, but usually
twelve or thirteen.

Depending on when he went down, you might just have enough time to finish him
off before the ten second mark, repeating the same method used for the first
two knockdowns. If not, at the 10 second mark Lex will move back and come
back down. Tyler must now be in a blocking position in the middle of the
screen. Lumpblocker will throw two quick bombs and immediately after the
second, you must throw a power punch. This will make Lex glow and his eyes
will be crossed with his arms stretched out in the air. As soon as Lumpblocker
is back in a normal standing position, throw another power punch if he did
not go down already. This will do the same as before and should knock
him down. If he is still standing, wait for him to come back into his normal
position and throw a third power punch, he will glow and definitely should be
on the canvas at this point.

If Lex survived the round, that is fine. Simply repeat the same strategy used
in Round 1 and he will not get past two rounds.

GRATHNOX 4

Grathnox is a bit weak in the belly, therefore it is in this fight where the
low body blow punch is first used. When the bell rings place Mark in a
blocking position as Grath moves down. He will throw two shaking hand punches
with a delay between the two. Both must be blocked and as soon as the second
one has been blocked, land a low right body blow to Grath's belly to get a
power punch. Block Grath's swing punch and then remain in a blocking position.
Grathnox 4 will once again throw two shaking hand punches. Block them both and
then as the second one is blocked, connect with a low body blow to the belly
to get a second power punch. Block Grath's swing punch like before and he will
now move back. As Grath is in the upper portion of the screen, get ready to
block his assault. Grath will come back down and unleash an 8 punch
combination. Block this onslaught and as soon as the last punch has been
blocked, nail him with a power punch to make him glow and then dodge his
second eight punch barrage. When the second combination has been completely
avoided, get back into the middle of the ring in a blocking position. Grath
will throw two shaking hand punches, block them both and then after the second
has been blocked, connect with a low body blow to the belly to obtain a power
punch. Now, block Grath's swing punch and then block his second set of shaking
hand punches and fire a low body blow after his second one as usual. Another
power punch should have been earned. At this point, move slightly aside and
unleash a series of uppercuts to the head to push Grath back up. When he comes
back down, Tyler must be in a blocking position. Block the first set of eight
punches and unload the power punch. Avoid the second combination by dodging
and then line up with Grathnox and connect with as many uppercuts to send him
back up (or knock him down in some cases). As he comes down, avoid both of his
combinations and nail him with uppercuts to knock him down.

As he gets back up he will try to come back down towards Tyler, but do not let
him do so. Push him back with uppercuts. Now, place Tyler into a blocking
position. Block the first eight punch combination and then nail Grath with the
power punch. Quickly dodge his second combination and nail him with as many
uppercuts to knock him down for a second time. Once he is back up he will try
to come back down obviously, but prevent him from achieving so by throwing
uppercuts as usual. These will place him back at the top of the screen. Tyler
must now be in a blocking position and block the first combination. Once the
combination is blocked connect with the power punch and then dodge the second
set of eight punches. Line up with Grathnox and nail him with uppercuts in
order to hopefully send him down for a third time, TKO.

With near to full boxing attributes Grath will fall much quicker using this
strategy, so don't be surprised of this.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


EREC NODDEN

He is the younger brother of Derec and fights in a similar way. As he makes
his way down to fight, make sure Tyler is in a blocking position. Block Erec's
first punch and then give him a body hook to get a power punch, followed by
another body hook to speed up his combination. At this point Erec's eyes will
bulge and this is the sign that he is going to throw his deadly combination.
The combination consists of three two-fisted punches followed by a final
smashing punch. In order to avoid this, dodge left and right until all four of
those punches have been thrown (only do this if Tyler has not performed well
in training). If Mark is nearly full on his boxing attributes, blocking the
combination will be good enough. Now, while in the center of the ring nail
Nodden with the power punch a little bit after Nodden threw his final smashing
punch. If timed properly Erec will glow and will immediately throw a punch.
Tyler must block this punch and then unleash a body hook of his own to gain
a second power punch, which must be followed by another body hook. Erec's eyes
will once again bulge, thus prepare to block his four punch combination and
then use a power punch not long after Nodden's fourth punch in the middle of
the screen to make him glow. Repeat this strategy once more and Erec will go
down after being hit with the third power punch, at around 49 (if Tyler has
a good percentage of boxing attributes that is).

Once Erec is back on his feet use the hit and move technique landing body
hooks and uppercuts, in order to knock him down a second time. As he gets
back up continue using the hit and move technique to end the round and
send Erec on his goblin azz most likely.

If not, repeat the same power punch strategy used at the beginning of the
fight for Round 2 and Nodden will be KNOCKED OUT.

//////////////////////////////THE FINAL LEAGUE////////////////////////////////


PUGLY POSITRONIC

This opponent has no legs! That is great for Mark Tyler. As soon as the fight
begins, place Tyler in a blocking position. Allow Pugly to throw three awkward
punches which you must all block of course. They are awkward, because he uses
one arm to hold his body up in a horizontal position, while using the other
arm to throw a punch. After the third punch has been blocked, Pugly will place
one of his hands over his face, this signals to stop blocking and to get ready
to punch him with a body hook (it looks like a face hook on him, because he is
so small). Now move to the right, Pugly will let go of his face and this is
where you must go from right to left and land a body hook. Then go from left
to right and land a second body hook, this will give Tyler a power punch. At
this point, use the hit and move technique until the timer reads that there
are 10 seconds left in the round (Watch out! When Pugly is hit five times, he
will throw a massive two fisted punch, simply avoid this after every fifth
punch). At the 10 second mark, Positronic will stop fighting and pause to
unleash a spinning punch. Dodge this and then come back and use the power
punch on Pugly to knock him down flat on his chest. Once he gets back up, use
the hit and move technique to end the round.

The second round should begin in the same way as the first. Use the above
strategy to get the power punch and then do it again for a second power punch.
Then hit and move until the timer reads 30. Pugly will pause and throw his
spinning punch, dodge it and connect with a power punch to knock him down. Hit
and move again until the clock reads 15. Pugly will slow down and throw another
trademark spinning punch, which you must dodge of course and counter with a
power punch to knock him down for a third time.

In the third round, finish him off with the hit and move technique to win by
KNOCK OUT.

With full boxing attributes Pugly will not last a round.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


SUPER BORG DLX

Guess who's back! It's the new and improved 9763 Borg and he has not really
improved from his last fight, as the hype suggests. Borg has become more of
a defensive fighter and has received a demon's brain (he now has the exorcist
head spinning going on). Anyway, when the bell rings, his comeback bid should
end. Wait for him to come down and then use the hit and move technique, going
from left to right and right to left while throwing uppercuts or body hooks.
At the 41 second mark stand in front of Borg and prepare to land an uppercut
to his head as it spins around completely at 40, a power punch will be
obtained. Go back to using the hit and move technique until the timer reads
26. At this point, stand in front of Borg and throw an uppercut when his head
spins at 25 to gain another power punch. Continue using the hit and move
technique until the clock is at 07. Now stand in front of DLX once again and
use a power punch this time, as his head spins at 06. This will technically
knock him down. Finish off the round using the hit and move technique along
with a final power punch.

For the second round, start off using the hit and move technique until the
timer reads 41. This is where Tyler must be positioned in front of Borg and
connect with an uppercut as DLX's head spins around at 40, to receive a power
punch. Now continue using the hit and move technique until the 26 second mark.
Tyler should be lined up with Borg and smash him with the power punch
as his head spins at 25 to gain another power punch and knock DLX down. When
he gets back up, the hit and move technique must be used until the 07 second
mark. Now, at 06 Tyler must land the power punch as Borg's head is spinning to
knock him down for a third time. Hit and move to end the round.

In the third round use the hit and move technique to knock down DLX for the
fourth and final time or the power punch technique if his energy is still
quite high. KNOCK OUT.

Super Borg will not last fifteen seconds with full boxing attributes.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


GRATHNOX 4B

Tank man is back for more, better stop his charge to the top of the IGBF. His
belly is even more of a major weakness in this battle. Let Grath come down
and throw a shaking hand punch followed by a swinging punch, which you must
both block. Now let him throw the same two punches again while blocking them.
At this point, Grath will begin backing up and this is where Tyler must use a
low body blow to the belly to send him back up. As he tries coming back down,
send him back with another low body blow. Grathnox will come back down
again, so keep throwing low body blows to the air until one hits his belly for
a third time and pushes him back. He will come back down for a final time and
when a fourth low body blow connects with his belly, he will be sent back
and Tyler will be awarded a power punch. Now, Grath will be backed up and
begin to bounce around in the same spot. This means that he is about to
execute his charging attack. Thus, get Tyler into a blocking position as
Grath charges into him. As soon as the charge has been blocked, unload the
power punch to his face to make Grath glow and then immediately throw a low
body blow to his belly to send him back up. Grath will now make his way back
down, so punch the air with low body blows until one hits his belly and pushes
him back up. Grath will come back down and you must once again push him back
with a third low body blow.

^^^^(+) A variation can be used here if Tyler has full boxing attributes.
Instead of using body blows to push him back after the power punch has been
thrown, land uppercuts. Then as he tries coming back down nail him with one
perfectly timed low body blow, followed by uppercuts to knock him down at
around 41. This can be very difficult to perform, since Grath always seems to
block the attempted low body blow. I recommend moving from side to side a bit
as he tries to come down, this slows him down and opens him up for the low body
blow. If you are successful it makes matters much easier. This is because for
the second and third knockdowns all Tyler must do, is block both sets of
Grathnox's shaking fist/swinging punch combination and then give him a low body
blow to back him up and then land three more sets of low body blows to get a
power punch, like before. Then as he comes back down with the charge, block it
and quickly release the power punch followed by an uppercut to knock him down
the second time. Repeat the same strategy for the third knockdown and it is
lights out for the tank man.

(Back to the regular strategy)
Grathnox will now remain at the top and prepare for his charging attack.
However this time instead of making Mark block the attack, simply dodge the
charge and then move to the left or right corner and fire a low body blow to
Grath's belly to send him back. If he blocks it, try moving around from left
to right in order to open him up to attack and then use a low body blow. Grath
will come back down so punch him to the belly with a low body blow to send him
back. He will of course come back down again and must be hit with yet another
low body blow to send him back again. When he comes back down for a fourth
time, connect with a fourth body blow to the belly in order to receive a power
punch. Grath will now stay up and prepare for his charging attack. Put Tyler
into a blocking position, then block the attack and use the power punch right
after to make Grath glow. Then hit him with a low body blow to send him back.
Send him back with body blows twice more and he will again prepare for a
charging attack. Dodge it and then open him up as before with a successful
shot to the belly to push him back. Repeat this three more times while
connecting with a low body blow each time and a power punch will be awarded.

At this point, get Mark into a blocking position, block the charge and then
use the power punch to knock Grath down. Grath will now be in the same pattern
he was when beginning the fight. Thus, let him come down and throw two sets of
his two punch combination while avoiding every punch. Grath will move back like
before and come back down. As he is doing this, hit him with a low body blow.
Repeat this three more times in order to get a power punch like before. Grath
will stay up and come back down with his charging move. Block it and then use
a power punch to make him glow, followed by a low body blow to back him up.
Then back him up with as many low body blows before the round ends. He might
have gone down for his second time.

The second round begins differently from the first. Grath will immediately use
his charging attack to begin the round, therefore dodge it and then counter
with a low body blow to back him up. Back him up three more times using a low
body blow each time and a power punch will appear. Grathnox will now prepare
to charge back down. Block the charge and then use the power punch to knock
Grath down (if he did not go down twice in the first round).

Once Grath gets back up let him throw his two sets of double punches, while
dodging them. Like in the first round, Grath will now move back and come back
down. This is where he must be hit in the belly with a low body blow to push
him back. Repeat this three more times, pushing him back with low body blows
as he comes back down to get another power punch. Grath will charge, so block
it and then use the power punch like always, followed by a low body blow to
push him back. Move him back with two more body blows and he will execute his
charge specialty, dodge it and push him back with a low body blow. Repeat this
three more times and a power punch will be earned. Block the charge and then
use the power punch to knock Grath down.

Grathnox will repeat the same technique when getting up. So avoid his two sets
of combinations and then push him back with a low body blow. Repeat this three
more times and a power punch will be earned. Block Grath's charge as always
and release a power punch to his face. Give him a few more low body blows to
end the round.

Round 3 begins the same way as Round 2. All that is left to do is avoid the
charge, push Grath back four times and then use the power punch after
blocking, in order to win by KNOCK OUT in the third.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


HAMMERHAND

This little guy is very fast and the only way to beat him is to follow him at
all times. Have no fear the strategy is here. When the fight begins, Hammer
will move towards Tyler and as soon as he jumps towards Mark, hit him with
three body hooks (he is small so they reach his neck, not his body).
Now, quickly follow him to the right corner of the screen and land a total of
three body hooks as Hammer is approaching. Hammerhand will now proceed to the
left corner of the ring and since you know this, quickly advance there and
throw body hooks as he approaches, three must land. Now proceed back to the
middle and nail Hammer with three body hooks. A power punch should have been
earned and Hammer will smile and grab his legs to start growing taller. As
soon as his legs get longer (not long after he is finished smiling), nail him
with the power punch to knock him down (he will glow).

Hammer will begin in the middle of the ring when he gets back up. Throw some
uppercuts towards him and then one will hit him. Keep on throwing those
uppercuts into the air until three more have hit him. Hammer will now move to
the right corner, catch him and connect with four body hooks. Go to the left
corner and hit him with four body hooks. Hammer will now move to the middle,
so follow him and connect with four body hooks to his neck. A power punch will
be earned and now you must dodge Hammer's first two-fisted punch, going from
right to left in order to do so. Then come back to the middle and nail him
with the power punch (he will not glow), followed by three body hooks. Now,
dodge his second two-fisted attack by moving from the right to the left and
line up with him again and land four body hooks once again.

Hammerhand will now go to the right corner. Get there before him as usual and
land four body hooks as he approaches. Follow him to the left corner and once
again connect with four body hooks. Go to the middle and hit him with four
body hooks to get a power punch. Dodge his two-fisted attack from right to
left and come back with a power punch to his head, followed by three body
hooks. As before, dodge his second two-fisted punch from right to left and
line up with Hammer and catch him with four body hooks. Move to the right
corner and connect with four body hooks and then move to the left corner and
land another set of four body hooks. Return to the middle and hit Hammer with
four more body hooks to get a power punch. Dodge his first two-fisted attack
from right to left and then land the power punch to his head, followed by
three body hooks. Now, dodge his second attack by going from right to left and
come back with four body hooks to his neck as always. Follow Hammer to the
right corner and land four body hooks and then go to the left corner and land
another set of four body hooks. Go back to the middle and land four body
hooks. Continue the same routine as before, dodging his first two-fisted
attack and then connect with four body hooks. Then dodge his second attack and
line up with him and land four body hooks. Follow him to the right and land
four body hooks. This should mark the end of the first round.

The second round begins like the first. So repeat the same opening technique
used in Round 1. Hit Hammer with three body hooks in the middle of the ring,
three body hooks in the right corner, three body hooks in the left corner and
then three body hooks in the middle. A power punch will be earned like in the
first round. Hammerhand will smile madly and begin to grow like before. When
he is finished smiling and you see that his legs have elongated from their
true size, nail him with the power punch to knock him down.

He will begin in the middle once he gets up like before, so throw uppercuts
at his way, one will connect. Now, keep on throwing uppercuts into the air
until two more have connected. This is so that the total for the middle is
three punches. Hammer will now go to the right corner, follow him and nail
him with three body hooks. Proceed to the left corner and connect with three
body hooks and then go to the middle and hit Hammer with three body hooks in
order to get a power punch. Hammerhand will smile and a little bit after he
stops smiling, use the power punch to his head to knock him down for the third
time.

Throw uppercuts into the air when Hammer gets back up, four should connect.
Now go back to the same routine of four body hooks in the right corner, four
body hooks in the left corner and four body hooks in the middle. A power
punch will appear. Dodge Hammer's first two-fisted attack and then come back
with the power punch to his head, followed by three body hooks. His second
attack must be dodged in the same way and then countered with four body hooks
as usual. Repeat this method of four body hooks in the middle, four in the
right corner, four in the left corner, four in the middle and so on,
twice more. The round should end with Hammer's energy nearly at the end.

Round 3 is exactly like Round 2, thus use the same strategy for the entire
round. Hammer only needs to go down once more and when he does, it's all over.
Remember, if your shots are not connecting with Hammerhand, it is most likely
because you are punching him when he is too far away. Hammer must be in close
range for the punches to find their mark (except when he gets back up from
a knock down). If a KNOCK OUT is too difficult, take the easy route by winning
a decision. Hammer must be knocked down at least once and Tyler not at all, in
order for the judges to give you the win.

Hammerhand will get absolutely hammered with full boxing attributes. Use
uppercuts on him to make it easier. Uh oh Uh oh Uh oh Uh oh you got the hammer.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


LEX LUMPBLOCKER

Remember this guy? Well he is yet another opponent who wants to defeat Tyler
in a rematch. Lex is more powerful and wilder this time around, but still slow
of course. The previous combination that worked so well on him in the first
fight (uppercut to the face followed by a body hook), has now been reversed.
This time around it is the Mike Tyson combination that comes into use. A hook
to the body followed by an uppercut to the face, grants Tyler a power punch.
Thus, when Lex comes down to begin the fight, bring him over to the left
corner and then move right as he is punching. Come back to the left corner and
nail him with a body hook. Go back to the right and then come back to the left
corner and land an uppercut, a power punch should appear. Remember if the
power punches are not appearing, it is because Lex is blocking one of the
punches or is throwing a punch at the same time. He must be open to attack.
Both punches must hit him cleanly, without him blocking. Repeat the above
strategy going from right to left, left to right throwing a hook to the body
followed by an uppercut to the head. Once four power punches are picked up,
use the hit and move technique until Lumpblocker moves back to prepare for his
deadly combination. This will sometimes occur at the 31 second mark, however
he usually moves back when the timer reads 23. When he does move back, you
know that his special combination is coming up. As Lex comes back down, put
Tyler into a blocking position. Block his first punch and then counter with a
power punch to make him glow. Now, immediately block his second punch and
counter with a second power punch, which will make him glow again. Quickly
block his third punch and come back with another power punch to make him glow
for a third time. At this point Lex will be in a standing position and this
is where Tyler must deliver the fourth power punch to knock him down. Once Lex
gets back up, use the hit and move technique to finish off the round.

Repeat the power punch strategy for the start of the second round, in order to
get four power punches like in the first. Depending on how low Lex's energy
was at the end of the previous round, he might be knocked down early in Round
2 before Tyler has four power punches. This is no problem however, because
once Lumpblocker is back up, you can resume your quest for the remaining power
punches needed. When you have received four power punches, hit and move until
the 20 second mark. Lumpblocker will move back and come back down to execute
his combination. Place Tyler in a blocking position and block the first punch,
now counter with a power punch to make Lex glow. Block the second punch and
come back with a second power punch. Lex will throw a third punch of course
which you must block and counter with a power punch. Lumpblocker will now
stand in one place, therefore unleash the fourth power punch to knock him
down. Hit and move to close the second round.

In the third round, repeat the same strategy as in the previous two rounds in
order to get four power punches. Now hit and move until the timer reads 29.
Lex may have already gone down at this point, if so the fight will be over. If
not, wait until he comes back down and put Tyler in a blocking position. Block
his punch then fire a power punch, block another and counter with a second
power punch. If necessary, block a third punch and then hit him with a power
punch and then finally, while he is standing knock him down with a final power
punch. KNOCK OUT.

(+)Lex can once again be beaten in the first round. It is essential to first
have all three of the boxing attributes full before fighting him. As the fight
begins, wait for the bell to ring and then as Lex is walking down, go from
the left corner to the middle to avoid his wild punch. Then, try landing a
body hook followed by an uppercut to get a power punch. Lex is very aggressive
at this stage, but the quicker you can get four power punches, the better the
finish. Once Tyler has received four power punches as quickly as possible,
place him in a blocking position. Block all of Lumpblocker's wild punches and
eventually he will move back up in preparation for his deadly combination.
The fastest time that he will back up at is 43. However, 40 is still good
enough. When Lex comes back down block his first punch and then counter with
a power punch, then quickly dodge his second and land another power punch.
Finally, block his third punch and then throw a power punch followed by
another power punch once he is standing. If he went down at 37, 36 or 35 it
is more likely that he will lose in the first round. A knockdown at 32 is 
fine though, since it takes thirteen seconds on average to floor Lex 
Lumpblocker for a second time.

When he gets back up, use the hit and move technique while throwing uppercuts.
Lex will generally be standing still after throwing a combination, thus line
up with him and land four uppercuts, repeat this as many times as possible.
He could be sent down again at 20, but 17 is just fine. The hit and move
strategy must be used once again for the final knockdown. Remember, always
land as many uppercuts as possible (four) when Lex is standing completely 
still after finishing his regular combination. He can be beat with a few 
seconds left in the round. Tyler might get knocked down once while using this 
strategy, but it is well worth it.

"I KNEW I COULD WIN. I CAME HERE TO FIGHT. WHO'S NEXT?"


**NOT SO FAST TOUGH GUY! WE'VE LEFT THE BEST TILL LAST. IF YOU WANT THE IGBF
  BELT, PREPARE FOR THE FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE!**



<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<THE FINAL CONFLICT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


FLY-MO

This opponent gave me nightmares for quite awhile, since he is seemingly
impossible to put away at first. This is because the regular punches almost
have no real effect on him. The only punch that truly harms him is the power
punch, however one alone does not do enough damage. Fly-Mo is unique in other
other ways, in that he cannot be beaten by JUDGES DECISION (unless he is 
floored with regular punches and Tyler is never knocked down until the end of
the figth) and once he gets knocked down with the power punches combination, 
the fight is over. Also, this is the only fight in the game where Tyler's 
power punches carry on into the following rounds. Thus, if Tyler has received
two power punches in Round 1, they will still be there for Round 2. Did I give
enough hints? Well without further to do, I will now give out the secret to 
defeating Fly-Mo.

As the first round begins, Fly-Mo's right glove will glow (not in yellow, but
in flashes of blue). This indicates that he will throw two massive uppercuts
when his glove finishes flashing. Thus, quickly dodge the first uppercut as he
comes down and then dodge the second lunging uppercut as he follows you. Now,
kill time up until the timer reads 41 by either constanstly landing body hooks
or by by moving back and forth from side to side, in the opposite direction of
Fly-Mo. Meaning that if Tyler is on the left and Mo is on the right moving to
the left, move right. The key is to keep trading places with him, so that he
is never able to catch up to Tyler. In this way you will avoid his bombs and
waste time in the process. You may also want to land body hooks in order to
better set him up for a hit that will grant a power punch. When the clock is
nearing 41, line up with Fly-Mo and land some body hooks. Mo may hit you but
this is okay, continue to throw those body hooks. If one manages to connect
at the 40 second mark when Mo's glove is just about to flash, a power punch
will be awarded. Hold on to this power punch, since it is of little use at
this point.

(+If Fly-Mo's glove is still glowing immediately after you have received a
power punch or even if it has already stopped, a second power punch or more
can be earned sometimes if Tyler can connect with a body hook before Fly-Mo
lunges in with his first of two deadly uppercuts. Your chances are greater
once his glove has stopped glowing however. When extremely fortunate, it is
actually possible to rack up on power punches as long as Mo does not unleash
his first uppercut. I recently managed to score three extra power punches in
a row after the first one was acquired at 40, therefore it is possible.
Fly-Mo is generally in the mood of bashing Tyler's face in, so leave some
time between the punches and distance Tyler from Fly-Mo before landing
another punch. It is all about positioning and timing. Once the first power
punch has been earned, move in the direction that will best avoid a Fly-Mo
uppercut and continue moving until he is near the center of the ring.
Although difficult, watching his hover ship as if it represented his feet is
helpful. It is crucial that Fly-Mo curves downwards using the entire ring,
rather than remaining in a confined area while cruising in a straight line.
This will set up the hit near the middle of the ring when successful. It only
takes a minor mistake on your part before Mofo unloads his combination, so
always be cautious and plan your attack wisely. The following strategy is the
key for a first round victory over Fly-Mo. With practice one will get into a
groove and Mo will become much less of a frustrating opponent.)

Fly-Mo will now lunge at you with two uppercuts one after the other, so be
prepared and dodge them. At this point it is best to waste time again like
before. Move back and forth avoiding Fly-Mo until the timer reads 21, while 
landing body hooks when Tyler is in a good position to do so (usually in the 
corners). Move into Fly-Mo's face and start throwing body hooks. If one 
connects at the 20 second mark another power punch will be awarded, but 
again do not use it. Dodge Mo's uppercuts as he comes back down. Use the 
moving strategy once again to avoid Fly-Mo and waste valuable time, until the
timer reads 06. Line up again with Mo and throw body hooks until one 
hopefully connects at the 05 second mark, while his glove is flashing. Another
power punch will be earned if timed properly. Avoid Fly-Mo's uppercuts and
assault and the round will soon end.

Depending on how many power punches you received in the first round, you might
be able to finish off Fly-Mo in the second round. If Tyler got three power
punches in the first round, you are in excellent shape and only need to get
one more power punch, in order to make Fly-Mo perform his special spinning
move that leads to his demise. If you managed to collect two, you are still in
very good shape. However, if you only managed to get one power punch, a third
round win is more likely. As long as you got one in the first round, all will
be just fine.

Now something changes at the start of Round 2. Unlike the first round, Fly-Mo
will now sometimes allow you to obtain a power punch on him immediately if he
is hit appropriately. The most successful way of doing so is to move left as
Mo comes down and then quickly move to the right and back to where Fly-Mo is
lurking while unleashing a body hook. It is very rare that a power punch will
be earned, but it can happen as opposed to the first round. If Tyler has 3
power punches at the end of Round 1, your chances are much greater.

Apply the exact same strategy as in Round 1, because every round is the same.
Dodge Mo's uppercuts after his glove stops flashing and waste time until the
timer reads 41. At this point, line up with Fly-Mo and try connecting with a
body hook, as his glove is just beginning to flash at the 40 second mark.
A power punch will be earned if the hit was successful. Dodge the uppercuts
and waste time until the clock reads 21. Get in front of Fly-Mo and throw
body hooks until one hits him at 20, in order to receive a power punch.

If your total of power punches is now at four, Mo will perform his spinning
attack, which he previews before the start of each round. If not, wait until
06 and continue the exact same strategy as before, trying to connect with a
body hook at the appropriate time for a power punch to appear. Use the same
techniques discussed for Rounds 1 and 2 in the third and final round (if you
go that far). As soon as Tyler has four power punches, Fly-Mo will start
spinning towards him. As soon as he spins in front of Mark, unload a power
punch that will make Mo glow. Fly-Mo will now move slightly back and perform
another spin move, use a second power punch to make him glow once again. Mo
will come back down spinning for a third time and you must counter this with
another power punch to make him glow. At this point, Fly-Mo will be out on his
feet with a glassy eye and clinched lips. As he tilts his head forward, nail
him with the fourth and final power punch (or connect with an uppercut. Thanks
to Eric Feliciano for this information!). Fly-Mo will have a surprised look
on his face and sink back into his ship with a flag waving in surrender.

achieved against each opponent. Thanks to emulation, I was able to determine
some of these times while using save states. Not even I can match some of
these clockings.

(10)BEHIND THE RING

Ever wonder who the four mysterious characters watching every Tyler fight are?
At first they appear to be the judges, but upon further inspection they have
more meaning to the hero of this game. When Mike Tyson's Intergalactic Power
Punch was being promoted, a screenshot was shown of the game in an Electronic
Gaming Monthly issue. It was clear when observing the image, that Don King
was the third character in the audience with his infamous lightning bolted
hair. In POWER PUNCH II he is still seated in third place, however his hair
has been cut off. This leads me to believe that the other characters have
some connection to Tyson/Tyler. The fourth character on the right is Mark
Tyler's droid training partner, who I like to call Mr. Robotto. The very
first character does not seem to be alive and is quite pale. He has to be
none other than the spirit of Tyson's legendary boxing mentor and surrogate
father Cus D'Amato. This leaves the woman. Which woman was involved with Mike
during his greatest boxing years? Robin Givens. She was there with her
diamonds and pearls watching her husband fight, never having the misfortune
of seeing him lose. In this game however, the programmers took delight in
making her cry out a river whenever Tyler is knocked down or loses.

******************************************************************************
(11)CONCLUSION

I am very proud of being the first person to write a FAQ on this game. I hope
it serves its purpose and helps all of those in need. POWER PUNCH II is a game
that I have grown to like. Since Mark Tyler resembles Mike Tyson, this game
was successful in winning me over. The fact that it is also the sequel to my
favorite game of all time (Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!), does not hurt its
chances either. Sure it is a hard game, but when a gamer becomes talented at a
certain game, he or she begins to like it. The road to glory was tough
(FLY-MO!), but now none of you will have to go through the stress I did. All
the answers to your most desired questions are hopefully all here in this FAQ.
If not, contact me and state what I could add to the FAQ. Any opinions are
much appreciated, just send me an e-mail at dancartex@hotmail.com.

This FAQ will forever be a tribute to Power Punch II. Thank you Nintendo for
making a worthy sequel to Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!. All the people who worked
on this game have my respect.

******************************************************************************
12)LEGAL MATTERS

I would like to thank www.vgmuseum.com for giving me more information on the
game's story in the SCANS section under NES. There was a scan available for
the back of the POWER PUNCH II box with some information that I used in the
GAME STORY section of this FAQ. Also a big thanks goes out to grandnestral.com
which provided me with much needed information of the game's origin. This was
found in the Unreleased Games section. Thanks to simplynes.com as well for
providing more pictures of the prototype in the unreleased section.

A special thanks also goes out to Timmy, the e-bay seller who sold me Power
Punch II complete in box on January 13, 2003. I received it today (Jan 21)
and love it. I noticed that the game clearly frustrated you by the huge dent
seen at the top of the cartridge (nice knee!). I kneed a couple of games
myself (Blades of Steel, Ghosts 'N Goblins to name a few). Of course you had
already informed me that the game was cracked and it was no concern to me. I
have the complete game now and find it ten times easier on the NES than it is
on an emulator. The manual brought some new information to my knowledge. Thank
you so very much again.

The quotes and characters mentioned in this FAQ (except for Mike Tyson, James
"Buster" Douglas, Evander Holyfield, Don King, Cus D'Amato and Robin Givens)
are all fictional and were taken from the actual game screens, while playing.
All POWER PUNCH II characters are licensed by the Nintendo Entertainment
System and were produced by Beam Software and may not be reproduced in other
games, without Nintendo's consent.

All strategies (and passwords) listed in this FAQ were created and discovered
by me only. I have never seen the instruction manual before (now I have) or
read of any strategies in magazines from years past, since I only played this
game for my first time in October of 2001. This being the case, I would like
for those interested in using this FAQ, to contact me by e-mail at
dancartex@hotmail.com before doing so. Over 90% of this FAQ comes from my own
mind, so please do not steal anything. Be polite and ask me for permission to
post this FAQ on your website and I will gladly oblige. There is no need to
worry as I will not bite. I may like Mike Tyson, but I will not bite.
Trust me.

Only Gamefaqs.com has permission at this point to post the following FAQ. What
can I say, they specialize in FAQs and deserve to be first in line.

Thank you for your understanding.
