 Hello everybody! Welcome to my movelist for Manny in Def Jam Vendetta. Here 
you'll find a list of Manny's moves. 
I'll list the commands and names of every move and also the name of the move 
in "real wrestling-terminology" or a short explanation. This may not always be
accurate as I'm not in any way a wrestling specialist. I have used the 
movelists in WWE Smackdown! Shut your Mouth, or the internet, where my memory 
was lacking. If you find any errors (which I'm sure you will) please mail me.

 I recommend you to look in my FAQ for Briggs before reading further. There 
you'll find the explanations for the different positions you'll have to be in 
to perform the moves. There you'll also find a General Movelist with the
moves which are the same regardless which character you're playing as.

NOTE: When you're reading the Movelist, remember that the names to the left
are the "in-game names" and the names to right are the "real names" or
explanations. The letters at the far left are the buttons you have to press.



 This section will contain explanations of the shortenings I use in the FAQ. 

S    = the strike button (press the square button on the PS2 controller)
G    = the grapple button (press the cross button on the PS2 controller)
O    = the button which you use to get in and out of the ring 
       (press the triangle button on the PS2 controller)
R    = the run button (press the circle button on the PS2 controller)
AB   = the command to activate Blazin' Mode (move the right analog stick on 
       the PS2 controller)
BL   = the block button (press the R1 button on the PS2 controller)
u    = hold up on the D-Pad/Left Analog Stick
l    = hold left on the D-Pad/Left Analog Stick
r    = hold right on the D-Pad/Left Analog Stick
d    = hold down on the D-Pad/Left Analog Stick
dir  = hold any direction or the specific direction for the situation on the 
       D-Pad/Left Analog Stick 
t    = press the button that comes afterwards lightly, tap it
h    = hold in the button that comes afterwards 
c    = close strike
f    = far strike
b    = you have to bounce into the ropes before pressing the button
r    = you have to run to do the move
bm   = you have to be in Blazin' Mode to do the move 
fuh  = press the button by the head of an enemy laying on the ground face-up
fuf  = press the button by the feet of an enemy laying on the ground face-up
fdh  = press the button by the head of an enemy laying on the ground face-down
fdf  = press the button by the feet of an enemy laying on the ground face-down
te   = hold the direction towards the enemy
to   = hold the direction towards the outside of the ring



 Manny is unlocked when you start the game. He is your hero in Story Mode's 
friend, and he plays a quite big role in the plot. As a wrestler he's quite 
crappy though.

Special Moves


bmAB     Skull Fracture           Manny knees the opponent in the stomach, 
                                  making him fall to the floor, where Manny
                                  knees him several times to the shoulders and
                                  head. He finishes with a hard knee strike to
                                  the head.  

 Rear Grapple

bmAB     Pummel Horse             Manny grabs the opponents wrists and pushes
                                  them together. He holds both of them in one
                                  hand and pushes upwards making the opponent
                                  bend forwards. The opponents arms are now 
                                  pointing towards the sky with a 90 degree 
                                  angle. Manny jumps up and spins one time 
                                  around the opponents arms and then 
                                  drops to the floor.

That's all from me! It's been fun.
