*****Disclaimer*****

This FAQ is intended for private use only, and may be
reproduced electronically. It cannot be distributed for
promotional purposes (that means that no game magazine,
book, etc. is allowed to publish this thing). You are
allowed to put this up on your Web page as long as this
FAQ remains in its original form, and I am given full
credit for it. One last thing - this FAQ is NOT FOR SALE!
I made this for free, and I want it to stay that way.
Do not sell this to anybody! That is all.....


*****Deafult Controls*****

Direction Pad (when facing right)
 Right - moves forward (F)
 Left - moves backward (also blocks) (B)
 Up - jumps straight up (U)
 Down - crouches (D)
 Up-Right - jumps forward (UF)
 Up-Left - jumps backward (UB)
 Down-Right - crouches and moves forward (DF)
 Down-Left - crouches and blocks (DB)
 double-tap Right or Left - dash forward or backward
(when facing left, simply reverse all forward and backward
 commands.)

Square Button - weak slash (WS)
Triangle Button - strong slash (SS)
X button - weak kick (WK)
O button - strong kick (SK)
R1 button - special move 1
R2 button - special move 2
L1 button - dodge into the foreground
L2 button - dodge into the background
Select - taunt
Start - pause

(S) - either Slash button
(K) - either Kick button

Energy moves can inflict a lot of damage if you can get in
close enough. To do so, press WS+WK.

Overdrive moves can be done when your Overdrive meter is full
(the one above your life bar). Press WS+SS or WK+SK.

All Desperation Moves can be done by pressing
F, B, F + SS when your character's energy bar is flashing red.
(For Kayin, substitute SS with SK.) Unlike in BAT 2, you
can't perform your Desperation move over and over. You can
only use it once, and you need to get hit before you can
use it again.


*****Play Modes*****

Arcade - Play against the 14 evil characters and the bosses, Sho
and Abel.

Vs Human - Fight against a friend with all of the characters
you have currently accessed.

Vs Computer - Fight against the computer.

Survival - Fight as many battles as you can on one life meter.

Practice - Practice your character's moves and combos.


*****Character Profiles*****

Some of the names of the special moves were made up by me,
(especially the moves of the secret characters)

*****Secrets*****

To unlock any of the evil characters, you must beat the game on any
difficulty level with one of the regular characters.

To unlock Sho, you need to have unlocked all of the secret evil
characters, then beat the game as one of them. (You will only have
to fight Sho at the end.)

To unlock Abel, finish the game with Sho on the default difficulty
level or higher. (After beating Abel, you will have to fight another
hidden boss, Veil.)

To unlock Veil, finish the game with Abel on the default difficulty
level or higher. (You will only have to fight Sho at the end.)

To unlock Naru, finish the game as Veil on the default difficulty
level or higher. (After defeating Sho, you must beat Naru.)

After you have unlocked all 32 characters, you are now given the
ability to do the following:

Alternate color palettes - At the character select screen, press
either Square or X to get a different color palette for you fighter.

Easy Super moves - If you have the R1 and R2 buttons set on Special
Move 1 and Special Move 2, press both of them during battle to
use a super move that can knock a lot of energy out of your opponent.
(Note: Some characters do not have super moves. See character profiles
for details.) You can also use this command to activate Overdrive
and Desperation Moves.
