(I) [Introduction]

- Parappa's world! -

 It's a world jammed and jammin' with reggae, hip-hop and pop. You're Parappa,
 a condifent pup who's out for one thing: to impress his daisy, Sunny Funny.
 With your help, Parappa will wow her with his rap-ability. You'll learn to
 throw it down from the best rap-masters around, and you'll beat them at their
 own game. And when you do, Sunny will be on Parappa's.. okay, your arm. But if
 you mess up, Sunny could end up being the prize blossom of jerky Joe Chin, and
 we wouldn't want that, would we? So remember Parappa's motto, "I gotta
 believe," and believe in yourself, okay? Otherwise, Parappa will never get
 Sunny!

- The Masters -
  Each level has a Master who will teach you. Learn from them, impress them -
 because they decide whether or not you're ready to move on.

Chop Chop Master Onion: Chop Chop is the martial arts master of the Fruites
                         Dojo, the karate training center in Parappa Town.
                         Speaking a strange version of broken English, he is
                         Parappa's teacher at the start of the game.

  Instructor Mooselini: Quick-tempered and often ill-mannered, driving
                         instructor Mooselini is a stickler for rules and
                         regulations. She teaches Parappa how to drive in
                         Stage 2, but she always forgets to close the door.

    Prince Fleaswallow: Making a living selling old wares at the flea market,
                         this pleasurable guy, who appears in Stage 3 of the
                         game, doesn't seem worried about not being able to
                         actually sell anything.
Cheap Cheap
   the Cooking Chicken: The host of a TV cooking show, she teaches Parappa the
                         fine art of baking a cake in Stage 4. Mostly
                         cool-tempered, she's in the habit of laying eggs when
                         frustrated.

  M.C. King Kong Mushi: The master of ceremonies at Club Fun in Stage 6 and
                         idolized by all the youths of Parappa Town.

(II)   [Controls]

- Controls -
      Direction Pad: Hold Left or Right to make Parappa repeat the first lyric
                      of Parappa's rap. This is used for Freestyling!

       Start Button: Give up. Please note that you can't pause!

,A,X,O,L,R Buttons: Rap!

 Note: There's really no "A" button on the PlayStation controller, but since
       the letter "A" looks more like a triangle than anything else, it's just
       easier this way.

(III)  [Menus]

- New Game -
  Starts the game in Stage One as Parappa.

- Menu -
  Enters the Menu screen:
        Language: Change the subtitles text to either English, French,
                   Spanish, Italian, or German. The voices are always in
                   English, though!
        Hi-Score: Check out the scores you've gotten in each level.
        Practice: If you're cracking under the Masters' pressure, try the
                   simple Practice screen. It's just Parappa and Katy Kat
                   practicing the flow of the Rhythm Bar.
    Stage Select: Play any Stage that's been unlocked. Stages with a Lock
                   icon haven't been beaten, a Parappa icon means it's been
                   cleared with a GOOD rating, and a Crown means it's been
                   cleared with a COOL rating!
          Replay: Watch the entire last rap from any save on a memory card.
            Load: Load game data from a memory card.

(IV) [Gameplay]

- What's the point of the game? -
  To groove with the rhythm and bust out cool raps. If you do it right, you
 move from level to level (and impress Sunny)! If you flub it up, you don't.


The screen looks sort of like this:

                      +--------------------------------+
                      |     +---------1--------------+ |

                      | +----------------------------+ |
                      +--------------------------------+

1. Rhythm Bar
   This tells you the buttons to push and the timing of when to push the
   buttons.

2. Parappa
   The main man, the dude, the hip hop hero. Oh yeah, this is you.

3. Rating Meter
   The Rating Meter starts at "GOOD", and if you play bad, you rating goes to
   "BAD". If you are really terrible, you go to "AWFUL". When you get worse
   than awful, it's game over. On the other hand, if you are doing really
   great, it goes to "COOL", and your teacher will disappear and you get the
   stage to yourself. When a Rating is blinking, it means you are halfway to
   a rating change. Doing well will bump you up a Rating, but failing will
   keep you at your current Rating.

4. The Master
   The Master will sing for you as an example. When it's your turn, you need
   to answer and copy the lyrics with your own rap. If you're not doing so well,
   the Master will start acting goofy and the music will go nuts. It's actually
   kind of cool. Give it a try.

5. Score
   The score reflects your rhyme-busting skills.

6. Subtitles
   The shows you the movie screen conversations and lyrics to the songs. Go
   ahead and sing along!


- How To Play -

 Live vicariously as a cool rap star. You are Parappa, the hip hop hero seeking
 Sunny's heart. So, when you push the buttons, you'll rap, just like Parappa! The
 Master shows you the example songs, and you answer with your lyrics, get it? The
 game goes like this:

   Master's example -> your rap -> Master's example -> your rap -> and so on

 Basically, getting with the rhythm and pusing the buttons will work just
 fine. Which buttons do you press? Well, on top of the screen you will see the
 buttons spaced out in rhythm, so follow that. All right!


- Turn Order -

1. Watch the Turn Window
   Whomever's turn it is to play, their face will appear in this window. When
   the window shows Parappa's face, it is your turn to play.

2. Watch the Rhythm Bar 
   O, , A, X, L, and R are the kinds of buttons that are going to be shown on
   the Rhythm Bar. This shows you when to push which button and the timing of
   when you should press them. 

3. First the Master
   When the Master's example begins with the music, the Master's face icon
   moves across the Rhythm Bar. After that, Parappa's face icon will move across
   the Rhythm Bar will the same button presses that the Master went over.
   When Parappa's face icon goes over a button icon, it's time to press that
   button. 

 Basically, you press the buttons to the rhythm. If your beat is good enough
and you get a GOOD Rating by the time the song ends, you pass to the next
level! If you bomb and the Rating goes to Bad or Terrible by the time the song
ends, the Teacher will make you start over. Practice makes perfect!


- Freestyling: Getting A COOL Rating -

 The ultimate goal for each Stage is to jam really well and reach the fabled
"COOL" Rating. But you can't be that cool by just following the Teacher's
examples all the time. You've gotta freestyle your playing while following
the beat. The easiest way to freestyle is to press a button multiple times
more than needed, while following the beat. It's kind of hard to explain,
so here are some examples:

(Example 1: Basic Freestyling)
    Let's say something like this comes up on the Rhythm Bar:

                   O - - - O - - - O - O - O - O -

    You could try something like this:

                   O O O - O O O - O O O O O O O O

    See? All you have to do is follow the song's beat and press the button
     along with it. DON'T just jam the buttons randomly at any pace or
     you're to drop to AWFUL in no time. Get it? Got it? Good!

(Example 2: Squeezing In More Notes)
    Here's something a little more complex:

                   A - O - - - X - - - 

    And here's some freestyling that could take its place:

                 A A A - O O O X X -    

    In this one, buttons were pushed before and after the verse started
     and finished. You CAN play before Parappa's face icon goes over the
     Rhythm Bar, which gives you even more time to squeeze in more notes
     and get a higher score.

(Example 3: Less Can Be More)
     Okay, sometimes lines with huge amounts of notes that can be tricky
      to play at a decent pace. These kind of lines are just BEGGING to
      be freestyled. Take a look at this line:

                   A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A 

      Now pressing the A Button that quickly for that long can throw
       off your timing or wear you out. Instead of trying to hit EVERY
       beat there, try leaving some out, like this:

                   A - A - A - A - A - A - A A A A 

      Now the freestyled verse not only gives you more time to think
       between beat and lets you hit them more dead-on, it scores you
       more points for originality!

(VII) [Other Song Lyrics]

 The Jet Baby (Prologue song)

When Jet Baby flies
She flies up there forever

When Jet Baby flies
She flies through any weather

When Jet Baby loves
She loves all of the children

She never lets them cry
As she sails through the sky
To save us from what ails us and to make us love

 Love You RAP (Stage Six Intro)

As I walk the streets, packin horses and cases and everything in it, is it
 that I must always be ready for any action, precaution, or junction
 revolution, or constipation
Check it out, check it out, check it out
Dig it out, diggin it out
I ain't got no doubts, so what's the fuss about?
I need you, I want you
Where in the world are you?
S.O.S. come to my rescue!

I wanna let you know, of my desire (Let it let it go...)
I'm almost on fire
I wanna let you know, of my desire (Let it let it go...)
I'm almost on fire

I see you a few times a day
You never do look my way, you're always cold
You never underestimate me, never respect me
I wish I had some money, so you could see me
Flip flap stap and you don't bend
Why do you always scream and shout at me, at the end
I hope we're getting closer, and closer and nearer
Or else I will explode, like I told you

I wanna let you know, of my desire (Let it let it go...)
I'm almost on fire
I wanna let you know, of my desire (Let it let it go...)
I'm almost on fire

 Funny Love (Stage Seven Intro)

You can be fun to be around every day
And night and though things seem very crazy to me
You're a friend to me
Yes a friend indeed

We can go almost anywhere, you and I
My friend
And I know fun is all that we will share
Oh yes we can fly almost anywhere to a special place we can find
Just you and I

We can do it
Just keep your eyes upon the prize
We can do it
You and I if we try to fly

Wish you knew
Just how very much that I care for you
And though things are always working you see
Yes just you and me
My friends and me

Oh you try so hard
Just to please this girl that you've grown fond of
And I really do believe
This is where we should be

We can do it
Just keep your eyes upon the prize
We can do it
You and I if we try to fly

We can go almost anywhere, you and I my friend
And I know fun is all that we will share
Oh yes we can fly almost anywhere to a special place we can find
Just you and I

(VIII) [FAQ]


- I am not playing very well. What should I do to get better?
  The most important step to doing well is to get a feel for the rhythm. Each
  Stage has a different rhythm that you must get used to in order to press the
  buttons right. Tap your foot, sing to the music, or do anything else to
  feel the rhythm! Try playing Stage One over and over, or try the game's
  Practice modes to master the rhythm!  

- How do I get a "COOL" rating?
  There's no 'set' way to get "COOL" rating; getting a total feel for the
  music is the only way. Play through a level over and over, then freestyle
  the button-pressing when you're confident enough and know the song well
  enough.

- Is there a sequel to this game?
  Sure is. Not only is there a pseudo-sequel to PaRappa the Rapper called
  Um Jammer Lammy, for the PlayStation, but there's a PaRappa the Rapper 2
  for the PlayStation 2.

- Is there a CD soundtrack I can get for this game?
  Yup, there's the PaRappa the Rapper Original Soundtrack, which is available
  only in Japan. The lyrics are all in English, though, just like in the game!
  It even has all the background music from all of the cutscenes.

- My friend told me your can play as (whatever hidden character)...
  Your friend is full of baloney.

- Is there a CD soundtrack I can get for this game?
  Yeah, but it's only available in Japan. But if you look around on the
  internet, there are quite a few sites that normally have it in stock.
