+ - It is helpful to hold Block, but it is not necessary.


Friendships - Cannot use Punches at last round to perform Friendships.
Babalities - Same as Friendships.

Dead Pool - To knock your opponent in the Dead Pool, [D+LP+LK], then hit
            HP next to opponent. (This is the same with everybody).

Hidden Characters

Jade - In order to get up to this hidden character, when you get up to the
fighter right before the question mark, win one round using ONLY the Low 
Kick button. You cannot use Block. You can play against her on any round. 
(Do not do Finishes, if it dosen't include Low Kick). 

Smoke - In order to get up to this hidden character, if you are on the Portal 
Stage, and you see a little man (Dan Forden, sound guy) pop out from the 
bottom hand corner yelling "Toasty or Whoopie," quickly hit D+Start before he 
is off the screen. You'll then travel through a portal to fight Smoke.

Noob Saibot - Get 50 wins in a row, and you will fight Noob Saibot. You
must fight against a human opponent and get a gold MKII symbol.

In any case, if you win or lose to a hidden character, you will go back 
to the select screen where you can choose another fighter and continue on.

Misc. Info

-Random select can be done by pressing U+Start from where it originally

 on both sides before the match begins. If successful, it will say "Throwing 

-To view the top 15 players at any time during attract mode, just pull down on

the bosses.

ineuki - "                                             ".

I also used other resources as well.
