TTT is registered and copyright Namco. All char's etc
are also copyright Namco. This faq is to show how to
use and when to do moves of Roger from the hit TTT
and is not to be changed or altered without my consent
and permission. This means, in simple terms for you
dumasses out there who are going to go around it anyway.
That if I find you ripping my faq, I will be rippin you
appart. This faq is PROTECTED. So there.



This was origionally a "Dish Out" Faq because of the amount
of requests I have been recieving to get Mine and Synners
but synner has "Dissapeared" leaving me to do a full fleged
faq BY MYSELF. So, I will do my best over the next few weeks
to take this dishout faq, and revitalise it. Also this is the
ONLY faq I have written, all other faqs with my name on it are
FRAUDS thou and throu, other than the Faq I wrote but never
finished with synner.

19\09\2000  -   Well first overhaul, not much changed actually,
Ver. 2.0        more of a focus on some tactics, like wave dashing
                with roger (yes this can be done) and crouch canceling
                etc.. There are some really good new features, I have
                added a bigger custom string section, as it has been
                asked for so many times, I thought I would add it.
                Oh, and now I think of it, killed the Ideal Tag Partner
                section, have decided that that is personal opinion, its
                up to you who you team 'em up with, I am here to show you
                how to use roger. =) And added the styles of play section
                to add to some fun. And also added some VS players char
                strats.. These are still open for anyone that still
                has any, I am happy to hear it. Ya all know my email.


Roger is a very tactical character to use, a lot of his
offence and defence ride on the quick poking ability. All
references to Roger also refer to Alex during the faq. There
is no case in which either character is better than the other.
Keep in mind, that the tactics may include command throws,
that are or can be, hard to do the motions for, and will need
practice. All you advanced players out there are cool with these
thou I am sure.


These are the conventions used throughout this FAQ and
these are recognized as the general commands used in
discussions regarding TTT between online Tekken players.

Bulldoging| Definition: to stay in your opponents face and smash them up.
----------  How to do it: Basically bulldoging with Roger is anticipation,
            frustration, and anoyance. Poke like crazy, mostly low and mid
            if you can help it, and pull out throws whenever you feel your
            opponent is fully content with blocking everything you can do.
            Your main idea here is to get your opponent on defence, and
            keep him on defence untill you feel capable of tagging, or
            doing a substantual amount of damage. A few "BULLDOG" moves
            can consist of:

            WC, 1+2

            The idea is mainly to set the moves up, train your opponent
            to block at certain heights at certain times with strings..

            Here are a few of mine for easy reference:


            Those are only 2 that I use in an offencive game play.
            For more reference, see "CUSTOM STRINGS" Section.

            The more you keep your opponent on defence, also means
            that there offence will consist of fast hitting high, mid
            or low moves to gain initiative. This is easly choosen by
            the type of character you are fighting.

            E.G. Heihachi:
            Best played at CD distance, when bulldoging Heihachi, dont
            let him move out of range, his moves to watch out for are
            the shadow steps, b+1, his d/b+1 (basically a d+1), and
            his deathfist. These moves will slow your momentum down,
            and come out fast, or do good damage, sending your opponent
            backward. Most, ALSO hit mid and high, so when bulldoging,
            try to keep your offence, while standing, and dont get
            caught crouching.

            Every character can be choosen in this manor, for more
            reference, please read "How To Beat" section.

Turtling|   This is hard with Roger for reasons of he can bulldog and
_________   poke well and most people prefer to do so. But when you are
            forced to turtle, block as much as you can,  roger has no
            real "POWER" moves like the deathfist, so HIGH amounts of
            damage arn't really going to be an option. His closest
            resembling move to a DEATHFIST is the f,f,N+2 that does
            decent, unfortunatly not devestating, damage. Most likely
            if you are turtling, then you will be forced to poke
            finatically to survive. You can not let big power moves
            come out, and ones that you are not sure of what are going
            to happen next, can normally be countered with a simple d+1.

            D+1 is your best friend with Roger. It is the best way to
            get into your WC position, and can stop anything that may
            be of threat. The most used, IMHO, of all the moves in the
            game for ANY character (EX Hei\Paul) is the d+1. For roger,
            he has been blessed with the N+2 after the move, that hits
            mid, and also, he has a nice range WS+4. The D+1, has its
            secrets thou. As Reverend C said in his Anna? faq, "The
            key to the d+1 is not doing it when your opponent does
            the move, it is to do it right BEFORE they do there move."
            In other words, it is best to anticipate the move that
            your opponent is going to do.

            Rogers CH 4 will juggle, and has amazing range, thanks to
            those Kanga legs, (SAME AS ALEX) and when in doubt of a
            powerful move, this may be the best thing to pull out.
            In short notice, it may not be the best of things, I am
            not saying try to take on the deathfist. Because you will
            not hit him, and be slaped with a counter dor %60+ life.
            No, I am saying if they wiffed a move, and you just want
            a simple button press counter, this is the move to do it with.

Chickening| Roger has stubby arms. That does not mean, that he cant
__________  chicken or punch. Chickening is all about buffering what
            moves you think are going to be reversed. The first round,
            just play and watch what the comonly reversed moves are..

            Things like the (1) in 1,2,(1) and the last hit of the
            animal rush.

            Moves like these are EASY to chicken.. Simply do this.

            Hold down the LAST button you pressed for the move.
            Then push FORWARD and the corosponding button as of this

            Left Chicken: f+1+3
            Right Chicken: f+2+4

            So it would look like this sorta.

            Roger: f,f,N+1 (hold 1)
                   push f+3

            Paul:  Reverse

            Roger: "CHICKEN"

Chicken Baiting|   This is more of a fun thing, if your opponent does LOTS
_______________    of reversing do this to change his mind. Give him
                   easy reversals all the time, and when he blocks them,
                   HAMMER him, forcing him to reverse. When he does, lay
                   the "CHICKEN" into him. This is bessed used against
                   scrubs and the like who have never seen chickens before.
                   It is not likely that chicken baiting is going to work
                   on an advanced player, infact, a good player wont use
                   reversals to beat his opponent, but if you happen to
                   find a reversal happy chappy, please, go right ahead
                   and turn him to lunch.

	In this section, we'll analyze only those moves that we
deem worthy and effective, including {of course} all of the new moves
that Roger has acquired in TTT.  Hence, not all of the moves from the
movelist above will be analyzed.

I've decided to use a basic "Five Star" rating system:

*               -         Custard does more damage than this.
**              -         It has its purposes, just not many of them.
***             -         Not too shabby...
****            -         Now here is a REAL move you can use!!
*****           -         Abusing a move is, bad right?? Not this one!!
??              -         Varies on Situation

And a basic "How Often To Use" rating:

1 - Out of the blue perhaps.
2-9 Basic Move..
10 - Main Arsenal

NOTE: All the moves are not on this list as of yet. Only the useful ones.
It is currently assumed that you know how to use basic things like
Ali Kicks, as they are a very well known and basic move. In later updates
of this faq, you will find all the moves posted with uses and

Throw name             Command     Throw-Type      Damage    
----------            ---------    ------------    --------  

ANIMAL STONEHEAD       1+3              front           30             1
Grabs opponents head and headbutts them viciously...

Common throw, there are better ones than this, but for
reasons of completeness I will add it here. This is actually
better that the Jumping Powerbomb IMHO because most char's
default to {2} for an escape, and this has good followups.
So really its not TOO bad.

**  5/10  Just for the mixup.

JUMPING POWERBOMB         2+4           front           30              2
Grabs opponent and plants a powerbomb with pretty blue stuff
all over the place...

This throw looks cool, but its not really a good one for a
big arsenal. Agian, learn to pull off the command throws faster
and substitute them for this. If you really have the need to do
this, make sure you mix it up with the A. Stonehead.

**  5/10  Just for the mixup.

DDT                     d/b,D/B+1+2     front           45              1+2
Roger\Alex grabs opponents head, before falling to the ground
and making them eat dirt...

This move is THE BOMB of all moves, it can be done WC or,
with practice, standing up too. Do it from the WC position
if you are in need of a throw, it works really well. And
the double button escape makes it nasty just to pull out
when ever you feel the need. Just dont get too predictable
with it. Dont give them a chance to catch on. Mix it up with
the normal and other throws, and beat them up with the Arts
of the Kangaroo. =) Also keep in mind, that if you need to
do this, try to keep it on the retreat. It's D/B motion is
a handy buffer for the d/b+4 animal rush.. So you can decide
weather or not you want to do the DDT after all.

***** 8/10  Mix it up!!

GIANT SWING             f,b,HCF+1       front           70              1
Takes opponent by the legs and turns around a few times before
releasing, throwing them a huge distance...

This move, again, is one of his best. It is good for stopping
momentum, and can REALLY do some damage if they do not know how
to quick recover. If they do, it does half damage, and leaves a
distance between you and your opponent, and you with the
initiative. Also the reach of this move is VERY good, so if
your opponent thinks hes out of throwing distance, hiff
him for a mile. Roger does not have a slide, but he does have
a running ali kick. Its not quite as effective, but it will do.
Just run up, and use it for OKIZEME or if you feel that your
opponent is going to do a rising sweep, or kick, then go into
a SS+4 combo for some nice damage.

For those more advanced users, you will all know that rogers
crouch cancel and crouch dash are very fast, if you want to
crouch cancel into a Giant Swing the comman is something like


***** 8/10 Mix it up!!

ANIMAL DRIVER           QCF+1           front           25          1, (3+4)
Grabs opponent by the arms, turns them upside down, and dumps
them head first onto the ground...

Sounds cool right?? Well thats about right.. It SOUNDS cool.
Trully this is a WASTE of a move. It is the WORST move in the
arsenal, does BAD damage, and has no use whatso ever. Ok, so
it leaves your opponent FU/FT but really, it is useless, take
my word for it, he can't do anything with it like king can.

TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER    d/b,F+1+2       front           58              2
Roger\Alex turns opponent upside down and drops to his knees,
planting opponents head into the ground...

Learn this motion FAST and FLUENT cause you are going to NEED
this move!! Huge damage, no recovery, front throw, looks cool
and gets aboout a whopping score. This move ROCKS plain and
simple. I mean, if you dont escape it (Damn 1 button escapes)
You are going to be in a world of pain!! Damn, it even gives
you initiative, and leaves your opponent really close!!
What a move!! Follow up with a SS+4 if they like to quick recover
with a rising kick, and you will plant them to the ground again.
Many times I have killed an opponent masher who has rising kick
or sweep by doing nothing but this. Also, if they just lie there,
a simple sweep or d/f+1+2 headbutt will do a fine job of hitting
them for some good damage. The headbutt leaves your opponent a
little furhter away thou.

ANIMAL ROLLING ARM LOCK	1+3_2+4		right		40		2
Roger/Alex take the opponents arm, jump up, swing around
their head, and ends up with an arm drag, kinda like the
tag throw 2+5 with a cool twirly bit.

Varies. Roger/Alex turn around real fast and throw.

Try to stay away from this unless you KNOW they are going
to run into it. Its a basic throw, and really there is no
huge advantage of it. Dont wait for the charge to do this,
youll just get run over.

ONE TWO UPPER            1,2,1               h,h,m           6,10,10
Roger/Alex does a right punch, then a left, then an uppercut.

Basic and OLD. The last 1 can be a ready chicken. Cause thats
the one thats always reversed.

The first 1,2 is a very good poke, and on its on has a use
rating of 8/10. You can also throw after the 1,2 to get
confused opponents. I dont even use this in custom strings anymore.
There are better options, and if you REALLY need to do a midhit, do the
d+1, N+2 for a poke, faster, same range, and chances are, it
isnt going to be reversed, but buffer a chicken anyway.

This move was really under rated in the last faq, it cant be
interupted, and is good for killing time, so rather than
giving the whole move a byast rating of 4, I boosted it to
6 as there are some uses for it.

****   6/10 Use it when you need a poke.

CROUCHING UPPER         D,D/F+2           m           20
Roger\Alex simply does a smallish uppercut.

Good poke, JUGGLES! Its fast, and has a LONG range, so not
all his moves are short like a lot of people believe. This
also hits mid. So its good for EDDY's and LING's. The best
thing about this is IT JUGGLES. Yes thats right, and you
can pull of any standard juggle.. Its main use thou, is
to move roger back into a standing position fast and
efficiently.. When the headbutt doesnt seem like its going
to work, then this mid hitting move is proberbly a better
option. Dont be afraid to use this as an interupt, if you
get it, you have your juggle, else it will be blocked and
roger will recover before anyone can seriously hurt him.
Just dont be TOO predictable with this move, cause sooner
or later, your opponent will catch on. Do this in strings
and you should be fine.

Any standard juggle can be followed onto this, also the
tag is a pretty good idea, you have to be fast, cause it
leaves the opponent a little far away, but that should be
fine if your not a cheeze JIN b,f+2,1,2 Generic mishima

***** 10/10 Poke Poke Poke

ELBOW STING                     d/f+1         m             ?
Roger/Alex does a rather hard and good distanced elbow downwards
on top of the opponent...

This move is fast, even thou its an elbow, it can be reversed.
It has a slight guard stun, good recovery, and knocks opponents FD/FA
so it gives good initiative, and follow ups on a counter. Its
main purpose thou, is to damage those anoying RISING KICK players.
This move will knock them right back were they started, and to
boot, they will be FD/FA. This means that the sweep is proberbly
comming.. Any player that likes to TECHROLL is allso fearful of
this move. It has the tendancy to put them back on the ground too..
With a quick follow up of ali kicks, for the extra damage, this move
turns out to be not as bad as it looks.

Its speed adds to its usefulness in custom strings, and does great
damage.. I still do not know the damage for it, anyone know email
me.. But I have decifered that it hits mid. Meaning a crouching
opponent would get a good headache of you slammed him ontop of the
head with this move.. Great priority, but dont try and beat out
moves you dont have to, like the WGF and TGF..

****  6/10 Stop the initiative of an opponent.

ANIMAL GIGATON PUNCH         f,f,N+1       m            23
Roger\Alex leans back (ducking) and then drives a hard punch
into the opponents ribs...

This is a really nasty moves in the hands of a skilled player.
It takes effort and time to learn which moves it is good against
and which not. It is also good for wakeup and will hit grounded
opponents like Kumas and Jacks. It ducks high attacks and has
no real noticable start up frames whatsoever, it only looks that way.
Its not like Pauls deathfist, so you cant pull it out to put a
major counter with it and wipe out %80+ of an opponents life
bar (OK I exadurated.. %60+) This move has just enough start time
for any anoying poker to have finished a wiffed poke, to eat this.
What I mean, is when you see a poke, and it wiffs, do this. When
your opponent brings his arm back, this should go in and hit him.
Its not quite an ANTI POKE device, but it serves useful. Also,
when you want to punish an opponent, or an opponent tags, this
move is the way to gain initiative. Its ducking ability is enough
to anoy jacks who enjoy the f+1+2, and also, the big bonus, is
the fact that if it is blocked, it knocks an opponent back, and
prevents roger from being hit. There is, to my knowledge, no
retaliation that is guaranteed, against this move. The most
useful part to this move, is the fact that it hits techrolling
opponents, and if your quick, can have the ALI KICKS follow up.

There is also the opportunity to do this move out of a crouch
cancel, its very easy to do, and its usefulness is invaluable.
The motion is simple to look at, but to do its not so easy..


Got that? Try it, its easier than it looks..

Also, if the move hits, and is NOT kickup recovered,
(When the opponent flips up onto there feet)
Then the u/f+2+4 elbow drop is guaranteed for some big
extra damage, as that is the ONLY escape from it.

****  8/10  Learn the timings for this one.

ANIMAL GODFIST              f,N,d,f+1        m              50
Roger\Alex crouch dashes and then lets off with a rather
large and nasty uppercut....

This is the move most people DREAD. Roger/Alex are small
characters in there own right, I mean, they are REALLY small.
(Ok not as small as that little orange ugly mug impersonator
gon, but small none the less.) And well, the AGF does SOO much
damage on a counter its not a move you can leave out of your
arsenal purposly. It one of his strong points, and should be
used as one. When I say this, it is used it custom strings,
and fast damage on duckers. It hits mid, so a ducking opponent
will proberbly fall for it. An idea is to use the f,n,d,d/f+1+2
a few times during an erlier match, and then pull this move out.
A lot of SS+4 animal sweep will also train the opponent to duck
a lot, so all you really have to do is get them of guard. DO
NOT base your arsenal around this move. It is not THAT useful.
Just use it as a "TRICK CARD" so to speak. It is also THE MOVE
to do after the f,n+1. It becomes unblockable, and you can CD
right into your opponent. It is a Guaranteed hit, and most likely,
after a few of these, your opponent will be DEAD, or eating the
F,N+1, or DUCKING. So the AGF is useful at many points, a quick
note, DO NOT go head to head with a MISHIMA with the CD. YOU will
loose, and about %50 of your life while your at it. Although Roger
can CD fast, it does not match up to the pattented WAVE dash, and
HELL SWEEPS that the mishimas posess.

However, this can be chained, like all his other moves, into his
WAVE DASH. So it can come out somewhat like a wild card. =)

*****  9/10 Use it when you KNOW there is a High attack.

ANIMAL SMASH (a)             f,N,d,d/f+1+2           m             22
Roger\Alex crouch dashes, before charging slightly, then doing
a vicious headbutt...

No need for this, it has short range and bad start up.
You can use it for wake up games, but I just dont. And
you shouldnt eather to be quiet honest. There are much
better options than this. The times that I do use this
thou, is when my AGF is being stopped, and I want the
opponent to feel content with ducking. This is an
easy move to see coming, and has a little too much
lag time at the start to be of any REAL use other
than TECH ROLLERS, wich, I might add, is the BEST
time to do this move. The CD will close the distance
on the tech roller, and the headbutt will knock them
right back down. This is actually easier than the
AGF to land on techrollers, and this is the one I
prefer. Otherwise, I use the f,f,N+1

**    2/10 Use the AGF if you need a Crouch Dash attack.

ANIMAL SMASH (b)           FC+1+2            m              22
Roger\Alex charges slightly, doing a vicious headbutt...

A very cool and dangerouse move. Rather than doing a WS move,
mix it up with this. It knocks opponents back, and
does good damage, leaving you momentum. When you duck a
high hit or throw, this is the move you will use to get back
up on your feet again. If its blocked, Roger/Alex backs away
And is esily out of there. The speed of this move makes it
one of the best WC moves in the game.. It hits mid, but has
VERY fast recovery, and leaves the opponent with a slight
stun that is BRILLIANT. The real trick to this move, is
when you have a grounded opponent, like one that has fallen
for the SS+4 or d/b+4 tail triper. Just do a d+1 (This will
esnure that you will not get hit by quick recovery) And do
the FC+1+2. This will hit if the opponent does anything other
than roll sideways, or just lay there. If this happens, and
you dont get hit by a rising kick, then by all means, go for
the d/f+1+2 headbutt that will stun an opponent long enough
to gain momentum if blocked, or put an opponent right back
down on a counter.

***** 8/10 When your down, hit 'em with your head.

Tail Tripper                    d/b+3               l             17
Roger\Alex turns around, using his tail to trip the opponent up.. 

This is a really good move, it is used as a close range sweep,
the best bit, is it keeps you standing, and has no real
retaliation to it, there is nothing to my knowledge that is
guaranteed on this as a block. The best bit is that if its
blocked it has no "Trip" animation. If its blocked, you remain
standing, so you can retaliate with d/f+1, d/f+2, f,f+4 and
stuff like that..

Mostly thou, keep in mind that this move has LOW range, and if
it is wiffed, it leaves you wide open for some dangerouse
retaliation techniques..  And that is not something you need
to be taking. The best time to use this is Okizeme, and if
someone is bulldoging like mad.

Konvict Kick                    f,f+4               m             26
Roger\Alex lunches forward with a huge kick..

Big damage from a kick, it actually knocks down the opponent,
unlike Rogers standing 4, and does good damage. It has excellent
range, and does big damage considering most of his other moves.
It takes a lot of people by supprise for some reason, and is
perhaps one of the best retaliation moves..

If the opponent is running toward you, or even if your fast,
tag diving.. This can be used as an interrupt. Chances are
this will become your favourite move for punishing wiffed moves
also, so always keep this one in the back of your mind..

Oh and it hits mid, so any of those feeble crouching turtles
ya can give a hammering to.

LOW JAB ~ UPPERCUT              d+1, n+2          sm,m           5,15
Roger\Alex do a simple jab before hitting with a nice uppercut...

This is your main poke. It is fast, REAL fast, and it can do some
real mean moves when your in tone on what to do next. Add this
to your custom strings, its worth it. And this is the MAIN poke
to do. Also you can stop at the d+1 for a WC position. You should
use this VERY often. It will stop ANY attack if you are in close,
its recovery is VERY good, and being a poke, it is to fast to
retaliate against. You might get a reversal, although I have never
seen it reversed. A lot of the time, I run into an opponent and do
this. It stops any anoying pokes that arent d+1, and roger can beat
out a lot of characters with his d+1 (other than Anna who has the
fastest d+1 in the game) The REAL bonus of this move, is if the
opponent is ducking at the time, the N+2 part will hit for the
little damage that it does. BUT being a poke, this move can be done
a few times over. The other thing is DONT forget the plain d+1. That
is the move you should NEVER forget and USE all the time. It is a
stop block for any move in the game other than a faster d+1. It can
interupt strings and combos very fast. And, the main advantage of
Roger is the fact that everyone thinks he has short arms, and range
matters.. Well heres the trick, his short arms are VERY hard to see
at times, especially when you are doing custom strings and poking
like mad. You wont need to worry about range, you get in close with
a CD and poke like crazy with this and the other pokes.

***** 10/10  When you need to poke, POKE

WIND MILL PUNCH                 f,N+1            h                30
Roger\Alex "rolls" one hand over another before leaning forward,
and hitting the opponent with his fist.

This is a good move for those scrubs that think blocking
everything is the way to survive. This leaves the opponent with
NASTY guard stun, and for all you scrubs that like damage do the
GUARANTEED AGF for some good damage. Else if you all are like me,
remember Roger\Alex can crouch dash REAL fast. So Crouchdash and
buffer a DDT for some COOL looking STYLE points. The bonus of the
AGF thou, is that it can not be broken. As the DDT can. If you find
that the DDT is being broken, then do the AGF.

NOW, after a few weeks of tantalising play, I have found this move
to be VERY VERY good, and it has risen from a 3 to a 9. I will explain

First of all, it has a "hypnotysing" effect on some players, they just
sit there and block it. When I say "hypnotysing" I mean that it wont be
countered. Because of the wierd lag, I have NEVER actually seen this
move countered at a CD distance. Anyway, the main reason it went up,
was the fact that everyone sees it as an oppening to do free damage.
THIS is a bad idea. I have knocked out a range of moves, from Kings:
WR+3+4 Sattelite Dropkick, to Laws: f,f,f+3 Flykick. If you just pull
this move out of the blue, after, say, you pummel your opponent attack
after attack of pokes, then the slight pause has a confusion effect on
the opponent as you have trained them to block. During this time, they
will realise that the attacks have stopped, and try to attack, in wich
they will eat this move. Or block it, then you just do the damage once

Dont OVER use this move, cause it looses its effect. And people learn.
Once per person on a good player, or if the opponent cant figure it out,
twice a round perhaps, but dont teach people around you how to stop it,
by giving them the opportunity to see it over and over. This is a scrub
tactic, to do the f,N+1 over and over with the AGF on the end.

If its blocked, anything moving is guaranteed. Anything from a sweep,
to headbutt, to throw. Its all unstopable on the "catch" but throws
can still be broken. So all in all, use it often, if you can, but
sparingly, and be careful. Its recovery is fast, and can prevent
a lot of ducking opponents poping you up for a big juggle. Like
Jin's WS+2. But be careful anyway.

***** 9/10 Use it when you KNOW its going to hit.

ANIMAL RUSH TO WINDMILL PUNCH   f,f,1,2,1,2,1    h,h,h,h,m    10,15,10,15,20
Roger\Alex rushes forward with a series of jabs, before doing
a "Wind Up" and nice hard punch to the mid...

This is a good move on a counter because it is unstopable
and does good damage after the first hit. Else it is stoppable
and the opponent will duck you, if this happens agains Kazy
or Jin, be ready to have your stomach hangin out of yer ass
and about %60 of your life bar gone. If its a scrub, and stands
there blocking all of it, the last hit also leaves with NASTY
stun, leaving an opening for whatever you plese. The main one
is the AGF. I tend not to use this. After the first punch, there
is no reversal option. On a counter, this move makes me laugh every
time, the second to last hit, puts them on nasty stun, and the last
hits sends them flying backward. And the damage is good, for
punishment on a wiffed move. Else I dont use this, maby once a day,
and thats how often you should use it.

The real advantage, is if your timing is good, rather than finishing
the string with a wind up punch on a counter, slam the AGF in there..
It does way more damage, and looks so much cooler!!

***   5/10 Use it when you know it will counter.

HEAD 1ST LUNGE       f,f+1+2       h(close),l(far)         15
Roger\Alex dives headfirst into the opponent and ends up rolling
onto his feet.

You can use this on a running opponent. If he/she is
running toward you, simply do this. The damage sucks,
but the other good thing is if you buffer a throw in,
the only thing an oppoenent can do after blocking is
the d+1 or just d. Thats why you mix it up with a
D/F+2, or a d+1, N+2. Again, it is a seldom move that
comes out on when you feel its nessesary. I dont use
this unless I am being told by instinct alone. The actual
move can stop a lot of things, be ready for shining fists
after you stand, they are not guaranteed, if you are ready
but, they can be suprising none the less.

Also, at a distance, this can be used as Okizeme, it hits
ground opponents, and is exellent for taking out air asault

***   5/10 This is really personal opinion.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT      u/f+1+2_F+1+2_f+1+2          m            35
Jumps into the air and lands, hands together, on the
opponents head.

Good long distance move for those who are running in toward
you, or tagging or whatever at a distance. Its also really
good for low fighters like EDDY and LINGS. If you've used
A.King then you know how to use this move quite well.

Its damage is somewhat more of a powermove for roger. There is
no real retaliation vs this attack, if you get caught in mid air
thou, be ready for a small juggle. Else, if you are against an
Eddy or Ling, use this when they do handstand or phoenix positions,
were they can not block, and this move will evade most of there
attacks. The other option for this move, is stopping tech rollers
while they are rolling. Again, like the SS+4 you can do it over
and over. It also kills quick recovers, and should be used on a
ground opponent atleast once a match. Its most likely going to hit
any moving character, and if the opponent is smart, then he will lie
there and take the Ali Kicks that should follow soon after. This
is not an OKIZEME tactic, as it will not hit grounded opponents,
but it sure as hell comes close.

On a taging opponent, this will knock them right onto the ground,
and any basic OKIZEME follow up will hit to keep them there or do
some free damage.

This hits large characters on the ground.

****  7/10 When you need a move, pull this out as a last resort. Or
           to kill taggers and LINGS and EDDYS.

ANIMAL HEADBUTT         d/f+1+2         m          20
Roger/Alex does a downward headbutt with the side of their head...

This move is really rather short when it comes to hitting
standing opponents. But to hit a ground opponent this can
be your best friend.  Ground games this is your best friend.
On a standing opponent, it will leave them with a good guard
stun, sorry no follow ups here, and should be used as a fast
retaliation if anything. It knocks WC opponents to the floor
and thats were you want them. Its recovery is decent, but
thats ok, if you are using it, you are going to be hitting
the opponent anyway. You dont want to overuse this move,
its not like a poke, but it works very well in custom strings,
and on a rolling opponent. However, a rolling opponent may be
hard to catch, a lot of the time, if I catch a rolling opponent
with this, I meant to use it as OKIZEME, and the opponent moved
out of the way. Its tracking isnt bad either, so an opponent that
rolled sideways should also be damaged. But this is not guaranteed.
It is not often I fight someone who rolls sideways untill being

***   8/10 Remember ground games are one of the main points of

JAB ~ UPPERCUT          2,1             h,m         12,12
Roger\Alex simply does a jab, then an uppercut...

Good poke for the moke mix up, remember if you mix pokes
into your strings, you can manage to confuse and anoy an
opponent to hell, and back. On generalisation, I use the
d+1, N+2 a lot more than this, because the 2 is a lot slower
than the d+1, but if you cant do the d+1, N+2 then by all
means this is the next best thing. The BIG bonus on this move,
is the fact that the first 2 hits high. And if an opponent
ducks, and does not do a d+1, the 1 on the end will hit, but
other than that, this is GREAT in custom strings if you can
be bothered using it, which you should! See custom strings
later on.

This combo leaves a good stun when it hits, it comes out
slow thou, not ineruptable. King can put a giant swing
guaranteed after this, I am not sure it is the same with
Roger as his arms are a little shorter.

***** 10/10 POKING, POKER, POKED.

ANIMAL GUT PUNCH        d/f+2          m               ?
Roger\Alex puts his elbow hard into the opponents ribs...

I love this move, it is part of my custom string all the time.
I cant get enough, it hits mid, so any ducking opponent is in for
a mean suprise, and in custom strings, it keeps opponents on their
feet. I also use this as a poke, as it is very fast.

You can use this pretty much anyware you feel, there is no limit
on how many times you should use it, its a poke, and being one,
I cant actually say too much about it. There is no downfall to
it that I can see, perhaps its short range, but thats what you
get for a poke..

***** 10/10 MORE POKING

TAIL TRIPPER           d/b+3            l             17
Spins around, tripping opponent up with tail...

This move is one of his best. If you manage to get roger
with Tetsujin or Mokujin then this is a mean glitch. Which
I am going to let you figure out, because I personally think
it is very cheep and should not be done. Or just email me
and I will tell ya how to do it. =)

This move comes out fast, its short range means you have to be
close to an opponent to do it, but its ability to sweep while
staying standing is invaluable none the less. The fact that he
stands is more so used in the custom strings. If you teach your
opponent to stay high, this can be the move to finish the string
off, and lay some OKIZEME down.

This can also be used as an okizeme tactic. The fact that it leaves
you standing gives you all the standing attack options that can
put a tech rolling player back on the ground. Like the Knuckle Bomb.

Luckily, I have never seen this move low parried, so it is VERY hard
to low parry, but if you wiff, you are looking into a whole new world
of pain. But thats ok, if your doing it, you arent going to wiff are

****  10/10 Suprise!! Your on the ground!!

JUMPING KNEE DROP          u/f+3+4           m                  40
Roger/Alex Jumps up and lands on opponent with both knees...

This is more of a Lei masher than anything else. When Lei
does the "Play Dead" bit, then you just smash him into the
ground with both your knees.  This move can do great damage
to players that like to play possom. And at 40 damage, it
is one of the more powerful of Rogers moves, infact, if you
can land this, it is going to do a few things. Close the
distance between you and your opponent, it is also going to
do good guard stun if it is blocked, and 40 damage if it hits.
There is nothing really bad about the move, it leaves you on
your feet again, and IMHO is one of the best OKIZIME moves in
the game. As long as you dont wiff, but then again, how many
people already know this?

****   8/10 Get back up fool..

Elbow Drop              U/F+2+4                 m              35
Roger/Alex jumps into the air, and does a BIG elbow drop...

Again just a Lei masher, use it the same as the above really,
only difference is this one leaves to on your back.
Its not as useful as the knee drop, and I dont use this.
If anyone can tell me good ideas, please email me.

Also dont forget it is the guaranteed followup to the
f,f,n+1 if the opponent doesnt kick up. The knee drop is not. =(

***   4/10 I said GET UP!!

EXPLODER            3+4_f,f,1+3          m                25
Roger\Alex waits a while, before leaping into the air for
a double leg dropkick...

This is a good move for when you block someone that has just
done a really bad lag move. Or is about to sway backward.
This move realy is a good one with the effort of finding
out what its good against. If an opponent sways, I do this
often, the dropkick has the tendancy to beat anything that
they do. Also, if an opponent is running at me, I do this.
If they slide, you go right over them, and if they do anthing
else, your dropkick will leave them flat on there back, and you
on yours. From there it is whoever can gain initiative again.
At 25 damage, it is not the best move in the world, and if you
can do the Satelite Dropkick on command, then thats a better idea.

***   6/10 Meet my Feet.

RUNNING DROPKICK          f,f+3+4             m                  25
Roger\Alex leaps into the air for a double leg drop kick...(no lag)

Much faster than its brotherly counterpart. Its damage is
understandable and its speed is good too. The main use of
this move however IS its range. Taggers, long range blond
bomers, who ever likes to stand out of range and do big
moves. This is the one to nail them with. Its also good
for people who are running in towards you. The main
thing about this move, is the guard stun it leaves behind.
You should not be OKIZIMIED if you use this properly. And
I think it is one of the most underused moves in the game.
If you mix this up, with a running ram, then you can pull
off some nasty damage. If the opponent ducks however, you
will find yourself sailing overhead harmlessly.

****  8/10  On those runners..

SATELLITE DROPKICK            (RN)f,f,f+3+4         m              40
Roger\Alex runs along, before leading into the air and doing a
SPINNING dropkick...Very cool looking.

Its better than the dropkick counterpart, damage and style
wise, but its also harder to pull off. If you need the
dropkick, try for this. You will only get the drop kick
if you miss..  Otherwise it has the same tendancys as the
last two dropkicks, except for a noticably larger guard stun.

*****  8/10 Whenever nessesary.

*NOTE* After the dropkicks, do a d+4 or a 4 while on your back,
this will stop any ground or wakeup games that are about
to happen.

STOMACH SMASH          f,f,N+2         l               6
Roger/Alex crouches forward and smashes the opponent in the stomach...

On a counter, this causes double over stun. Useful to the point of
if your quick, you can catch the double overed opponent, or
if they tag of the stun, you can catch the tagging opponent
off guard. This is also fast, good range, and good recovery
time. And can be mixed up with the K's Flicker. The main use
of this move, is to do a long range counter. It wont juggle
like K's Flicker, but it hits low, wich is why it suprises
so many people. It is one of the few high moves that hits low.
The damage is nothing, you get more out of a poke, but used in
custom strings, this is one of the best moves you can come out
with. To start a match, this can also be a good idea. It leaves
a good stun, and chances are, you and your opponent both went for
a move. So the chances of a Counter are rather high. Use this also
on falled players as OKIZEME. 

Dont overuse the move, unless you are training an opponent to block
low. If so, then use this in conjunction with the SS+4 and the d/b+3.

Also, if the guard stun hits, the AGF is the esiest follow up.

****  9/10 K's Flicker has the same animation so mix it up.

FRANKENSTEINER       d/f+3+4           ?                 15
Roger\Alex flips over head first. On a good connect he catches
opponents head with legs and flips back over planting opponents
head into ground...

This move is the MAIN arsenal of all the moves. The damage is
UNCANNY. It leaves for good follow-ups, and when you block an
opponent, pull out this move, straight away. It catches quite
nicely after a blocked EWGF or TGF.. Also, when the opponent
crouchdashes, do this. If its hellsweeps, you will massacre
them. If its TGF you will beat them to it. If its WGF again
you will beat them to it. If they are unlucky it will even
throw them.

The main advantage thou, is the long range, and the huge damage
that follows on a good throw. It is supprising what close range
attacks will leave you an easy frankensteiner after the attack
is done. If your opponent deathfists, a quick crouchdash into
this move may come in handy for some larger amounts of damage.
Aslo, a running in opponent, has the tendancy to run right into
this move, which is funny to watch in the least. It leaves for
good OKIZEME and anything from a d/f+1+2 to a d/b+3 will hit
for that little extra damage.

Its also taggable to a lot of moves.. Hwoarangs d/b+3+4 for a start..

***** 10/10 Whenever you need to, get dirty.

Animal Sweep            SS+4                    l              17
Roger\Alex sidesteps into a large sweep, and stays very close to
the ground.

It will duck all high hitting, and even mid hitting move. This
move has never been low parried in my sight before, and it will
connect almost every time. Dont wiff it, cause if it is blocked,
it will leave you in a sweep stun position. For this reason
it should be mixed up with the Hop Kick u/f+4, which should
be mixed up with both of them. This is one of my most used moves.
It can be the best move if you use it carefuly. But the thing is,
it can also do small juggles off the animal sweep. My favourite,
is the damaging d+1, CC, 1, f,n,d,d/f+1.
That does great amounts of damage.
If you find that your opponent blocks low a lot, you may want to
change to the hopkick more often, so that when he\she is not
expecting it, you can do this move again, and knock them down.

***** 10/10 Look, its the floor.


Unfortunatly, Roger/Alex really lack in this department, its kind
a shame really, thats all they need to be REALLY mean..

Sweep: SS+4, U+3+4

d+1, WC 1+2                       <-- Thanks Synner.
d/f+1+2, f+1+2                    <-- Big Chars and Taggers only.

9) Okizeme and Ground Games

This is grounding your opponent, and hitting them or keeping
them on the ground for extra damage. To do this here are a list
of moves in no particular order.

Ground Hitting:

d+3+4, (4), (4)

Tech Rolling\Quick Recovering:

All of the Above

When doing okizeme, do whatever move you feel nessesary to
keep your opponent grounded. Some characters, like NINA, can
do huge amounts of damage on a grounded opponent before they
can get up. However, rogers strong point is poking. So Okizime
is not the esiest thing to do. Here is a simple rundown.

If an opponent techrolls:
At a distance, it is a good idea to do the f+1+2, becuase of its
jumping ability, it will move a large distance forward, and hit
the roller. Otherwise, a shorter distance, the f,f+3 jail kick
will help, because of its slightly longer than normal mid hitting
range. If the opponent is close, and you are in a ducking position,
The FC+1+2 is the best option, as it will leave the opponent a nice
distance of the U_U/F+3+4 knee drop, or the running ali kicks.

A grounded opponent:
The main Okizeme tactic here is the SS+4 that will leave the opponent
flat on the ground infront of you, after a rising attack. Otherwise,
if the opponent is distanced, the knee drop is a much better idea.
It does 40 damage, which is more than most moves do to knock the
opponent down. Otherwise, a quick ali kick will get you into a safe
distance from your opponent, while doing a small amount of damage.

10)Styles of Play

- Crouch Dashing

This should be the biggest part of your Roger game, it will utalise
every opportunity for a fast and deadly attack, you must learn the
f,n,d,d/f motion fluently. Thou Roger does not have as many attacks
as the mishimas from the CD, this means you have to learn the cancel
and utalise more of his standard moves, which in my opinion can be
absolutely devistating. This talent is used for getting close very
fast, and range for Roger is a big issue. Being small he can get
under a lot of moves, and using this before or even after a sidestep
can give you the advantage you need for some big damage.

- Wave Dashing

Or, seing that its not QUITE a wave dash, I shall call it an ANIMAL
DASH. Now this looks somewhat different from the wave dash, but has
the same priorities. It goes under High attackes, closes large distances
at a small time, and can chain into ANY move what so ever. Including
things like the Giant Swing.

The motion is done like so..

f,n,d,d/f,f,f,n,d,d/f and so on.

You get the idea. =)

- Crouch Canceling

This is somewhat an abreviation of the ANIMAL DASH (god I love saying
that.. =) ) The reason I put it AFTER the ANIMAL DASH is because
if you can ANIMAL DASH then you can CROUCH CANCEL. The motion is simple
as you are doing it already. You have to break into the chain, and
pull of a move. Like so.


This is a Crouch Cancel into a f,f,n+1.

Many things can be crouch canceled into with practice and time.
I for one am still learning and am not afraid to admit that. Many
of you mishima users will find it much harder to ANIMAL DASH and
CROUCH CANCEL with Roger as he is much faster at it than a Mishima
IMHO. Then again, you must also learn some throw commands on a whim,
so you can pull out huge moves. At the moment I have gotten the
Crouch Cancel into a GIANT SWING down, the motion is one of the esier
ones, as it contains the BACK press on the joystick.

The most underestimated move from Rogers CROUCH CANCEL is the SS.
It is devistating at the right time, and two sidesteps can leave
you behind an opponent that has just retaliated.

This is done as follows.

f,n,d,d/f,f,SS,f,SS etc..

This is a double sidestep, and can be of great use. It take a litte bit
of practice, and the f and second SS is completely un-nessesary. This
is just an example.

- Custom Strings

Here I have been asked to add a large section, however I still do not
feel this nessesary. I think everyone has there own custom strings, and
a lot of good players just "wing it" as they play, meaning they mix up
all there known attacks and try to confuse the opponent.

Here are a few custom strings nonetheless..

d+1, n+2, f,f,n+2, d+1, n+2, d+1, 1+2
d+1, n+2, f,f, 1, 2, 1, d+1, u/f+4

This section is really badly developed, and email me your
custom strings, I will add them. =)


- Poking Strings for Roger

Well I will start off and say that Roger is a powerhouse when it comes
to poking. He has so many insane strings and juggles off of simple poke
starters. I will break down the strings I put in and say where you can
branch off into other combos/juggles/tactics. Here is how to set these


Ok this is a basic fast poke string.  The d+1,n+2 is one of the fastest
pokes in the game and is all mid so no ducking.  The f,f+1,2 is a setup
for a sweet CH combo.  If you CH the f,f+1,2 you want to finish the
string f,f+1,2,1,2 then juggle with a quick f,f,u/f+4(insert u/f
juggle).  This can lead to some nice 50% or greater juggles.  The added
d/f+1 at the end of the string serves a dual purpose.  The first
purpose is that if you CH with it they are facedown ont he ground and
you get guaranteed okizeme (Ali Kicks etc.) or any Okizeme game you
want to play.  The second purpose is if its blocked you are both pushed
a safe distance away and they cant retaliate with anything guaranteed.


Ok this is a great poking string that gives you some sweet damage.  As
I explained above if the f,f+1,2 cH's punish them.  If it doesnt they
will usually eat the giant swing tick(f,2,1,hcf+1).  Giant swing tick
is a sweet sweet move that you must mix in to your poking strings at
least a couple times a fight.


Ok now this string seems a bit awkward at first glance, but here is the
beauty of it.  A counter hit at any point means they hurt bad, and it
TRICKS them into getting countered.  They will think after the second
d/f+1 when you f,f, that they can d+1 counter you out of the 1,2 but
you instead hit them(hopefully CH) with the gut punch and get some nice
damage or at least a poke in.


This is just a plain and simple poke-a-thon.  They cant get in and
interrupt you unless they time in a fast jab perfectly.  The f,f+2
leads to more juggles on CH.


Ok now this is a nasty series of strings.  The d+1,n+2 pushes them a
bit away if it hits or if it doesnt then you go for the ss trip.  If
you land the trip there are plenty of nice juggles to do.  If the trip
is blocked... pray :)  The point of this exercise is to train them to
anticipate the trip.  Then the u/f+4 juggles come.  Remember that you
can delay the trip to hell and back to mix them up even more.


Wave dashing with Roger??? Am I insane?? Nope.
Wavedashing rocks with Roger. You have hellacious mixups.
Almost better than the Mishimas I may venture.  You can mixup the ws
uppercut(WD+2), the convict kick(wd,f+4), the giant swing(WD hcf+1),
the Animal Godfist and all sorts of other insanity from this. USE THIS OFTEN.
Well I will end this section with the basic moves I use to make up any
good poking string with Roger.


And so ends Fireseals LEGEND poking section, there are some small aditions
to that, wavedashing etc, but none the less, thank him for the whole section.
Any problems please email me.


This is were we tell you how to beat charicters..


This will be a Greulling fight of throws and pokes. Stay close,
get ready to escape the throws, and try to pull off the SS+4
with the u/f+4 mixed up after the SS. Poke your way through this
one. Also, watch out for fast moving pokers, if you find that
his poking is much faster than yours, then go to antipoke
measures, namely the ali kicks, and the SS+4. Be careful,
if you see Roger crouch dash, then get ready for the AGF.
Dont try to beat him with a CD, once it is initiated,
chances are you will loose out with a good %60 life
gone. Thing is, this is proberbly going to be a GREULING
match, watch out also for the FC, f+2 that can juggle for
good if not devestating damage. Good luck against a master,
cause he\she is gonna poke you till you scream.


This guy is a JOKE. Watch out for the twin pistions. Stay low,
and keep an eye on the laser while tagging. His twin pistons
are seriously overused. It is not a threat if you are standing,
it is only a juggle if it lifts you up, and in that case, its
gonna put you into a juggle. Chances are you were ducking at the
time. If you can do a lot of f,f+1 and SS+4 then you should
discourage the use of this move enough to initiate a crouch
dash game. After this.. do a lot of WC 1+2's
to keep Angel/Devil away and try to get in close with his
crouch dashes. If Devil/Angel crouchdash, just do the d+1, N+2
and it should beat them out of anything they do. Although,
if you manage to go against a mean player, watch out for the
devil twister SS+2. It will send you up and land you in a world
of pain. A lot of people do this as there main assault. Thing is,
this hits mid, and chances are, if it hits you, and they have jin
as a tag team partner, you are going to loose a greater chunk of
your life bar than truely nessesary. In reality, if you face a
master with this character, your best option is to not let them
initiate crouchdash, the WGF is special mid like Heis, not
high like Jins, lucky that Devil has no real juggles that
will do damage on his own, the main one is just WGF, 1, 1, WGF.
Be careful, and stay close. Devils most powerful ability is his
crouch dash.


Stay low and away. Do headbutts whenever nessesary to prevent
the reversal, and buffer easy reversed pokes. Anna's d+1
rocks, so watch out for that too. Try to pull out the AGF
whenever she goes to crouch, and mix it up with the CD+1+2.
Otherwise turn it into a GREULLING poking match. The d+1, N+2
is a good choice of moves when it comes down to it. The more
SS+4 mixed up with a u/f+4 you do, the safer you are. The best
option is to throw her whenever you can. Otherwise, watch out
for her assasians dagger QCF+1, its fast, REAL fast. And as for
a poking war, your biggest advantage is that you have fast moving
pokes. Remember you can initiate your Crouchdash game with her.
It may be a good chance at survival, and against a master Anna
player, you may need to side step alot more, and stay back,
luring Anna to come to you. If you can do this, then you
will have no problems pushing her back. Chances are, your
command throws should do enough damage to put her out of the game,
problem is, landing them.

Watch out for 3 main string moves.

d+1, N+4
d+4, 1
d+3, 2

These are the moves that she makes strings out of. So be wareful
of these.

Armor King:

This guy's WGF is anoying. A LOT of his moves hit high. He has no
mid throws, and the WGF is the only mean midhitting attack. Just
get in his face and stay low. The WGF is, IMHO the best WGF in the
game, its not as damaging as the EWGF or the 3EWGF, but it seems
longer ranged, and more chances to hit than the Mishimas. As for
juggles, you are looking at a small chunk of your life bar dissapering.

Whenever he Crouchdashes, he is either going to do the Black Knee
or the WGF, knee is mid, wgf is special mid.
So a simple d+1 will stop anything that may come out.
The clothsline from hell f,n,d,d/f+1, is a very
fast move, but it hits high. Try to duck the clothsline if
you can, cause if you get hit by it, you will go flying backwards.
Also watch out for his Black Shoulder. That can be very damaging.
After the black shoulder, forget the throw, it is very apealing
to see A. Kings side to you, but a quick poke, and anything that
may have done damage is then thrown out the window. Just do a
simple d+1. It is your best chance, as there is a large guessing
game after that on what is coming next. You can then do the N+2,
the FC, 1+2 or even the FC, F+2 for a juggle.

Else, he can poke just like the rest. Watch out for his D+1, and his
D+1, N+2 cause they can be anoying. Dont throw Head to Head cause you
will get poked first. And Vice Versa. If he trys to throw. POKE.
Keep in mind the Hop Kicks and the Low Dropkicks. They come out
of no-were. The hopkick is fast, it has good range, and damaging
juggles to follow. As for the low dropkick, again, if you stay
low, this should not be a problem. Dont try to low parry it,
chances are you will land flat on your face with sore ankles.
Otherwise, its a poke match from hell.


This guy is strings, LOTS and LOTS of strings. Watch out for his
WS strings, they come out fast, and dont stop. You dont want to
get juggled, because he can do some nice damage like that.
Just try to poke and block as much as you can. And inticipate
the next move. Sooner or later, he is going into a high move,
and that is your oppening.

An advanced BAEK can wavedash, this is perhaps his highest
priority to get close, to land his dangerouse strings. If
you get hit by the last hit of his ws, 3, 3, 4 his u/f+3+4
is a guaranteed hit, so be wary of that string. Baek has
a few low hitting moves, but during some point he must go
to a high hitting move, this is were the AGF comes in, for
big damage and string interupts. Watch out for his d/b+3 also
as he can knock you on the ground and do some dangerouse
okizeme with it.

REMEMBER: If the next move has the option of being Low, or a
mid hitting juggle starter, better to block mid. Unless you
know that the next move is low. Because, you would proberbly
be better off taking a low hit, than getting juggled for a
lot of mean damage.


Mashers shouldnt be a problem. They are fodder for the f, N+1
and the SS+4. If they keep mashing, just keep doing the SS+4.

I dont really know what to say about an advanced player.
When Eddy goes into a handstand position, he is very vunerable.
But this does not mean rush in and smash him up as fast as you can,
no, this means, you must time yourself very carefully and try
to catch Eddy inbetween his strings.

The best moves against and Eddy players are as listed.

d+1, N+2
d+4         <-- Its a low kick.

And so on. Anything that hits fast and low, or mid, will
proberbly be ok. The thing is, you wont really have a problem
too much with smashing Eddys into the ground, the lag between
the moves should be enough to get in and waste them.

Otherwise, just poke if you get in close.
Oh, and CD is your best friend here, any high moves from Eddy
are fodder for the AGF!


This guy AINT no joke nor jack. This guy can pull off some of the
most DAMAGING juggles I have EVER seen. Stay up, and watch for an
oppening, he is NOT slow, so you have to be clever. Poke when you
can, and watch out for his punch parry. If you are caught by it,
you cant chicken it, you will take throw damage, and you are left
with you back turned, and he can pull of anything from a side kick,
to a Head Rush F+1+2. Chances are, he is going to sit down infront
of you. There are two options here for old Ganny. He has a Megaton
Palm, that hits mid for NASTY damage, and also a arm sweep, that
he can turn into small juggles. If he does the spits, then he can
roll sideways, but this isnt too much of a threat. If he sits down
infront of you, you should do a d+1 straight away. You should not
let him get back up. If he does, its a guessing game, and that is
not what you want. Also, he will try to get you with his Sumo Push
d+1+2, if this hits, you will stagger backwards, and if it is blocked,
he is left with initiative. Although I dont recomend trying to stop
this move with a poke, you can try it if you feel nessesary to stop
it. Also, keep in mind, that he has a slow, but damaging sweep. It
is hard to sidestep, and has no sweep stun when blocked either. So
all in all, ganny here is a good character to use. The way to beat
him, is utalise the d+1 as often as you can. Sidestepping is an
excelent idea, if you mannage to sidestep the f+1+2 summo rush
thingee then it will leave you on his side, if not behind him.
Also, his d+1 will be utalised as a defence, followed by a guessing
game of FC 1+2 and so on. When he crouches or goes down, get out
of the way, out of range, just move. Get into CD distance, and
wait for priority to ANIMAL DASH and murder Ganny.

If you get hit by the last bit of his WS+1+2, 1+2 the throw
for him is GUARANTEED so be ready to break it.


A good heihachi player will have you on your toes all the time.
Dont go head to head with his crouch dashes. Chances are you'll
loose. Get the throws off, and roll whenever you are grounded
and think the stomps comming. Techrolling is a good idea sometimes
just to get away from a stomp happy opponent. But if your opponent
mixes up with hellsweeps.. Then you have a problem. Stay down,
and take the first hellsweep. Its better than taking the whole
two hellsweeps into an TGF. (I say 2, because most people know,
that the 3rd hellsweep will chances are, not connect.)

Watch out for his kicks, things like the standing CH 4 can be
leathal and damaging to say the least. Dont get him on a counter
with your CH 4 because, it will do an automatic counter. He still
takes damage, which is funny to watch as an ending move I might

His WGF hits special mid now, so don't be afraid to block it from
any height. If you a crouched, it will send you back a bit, and
you should be able to recover before he does anything too painful
to you. Just keep in mind a few things about his Crouch Dashes.

1. After a hell sweep, if there is a pause, the TGF is coming.
2. The second hellsweep is always blockable accept on counter.
3. The TGF has no Mid\Low kick after it.
4. The WGF is SPECIAL MID. NOT mid.

Heihachi has no d+1 poke, it is a tile splitter, BUT a good
Heihachi player will know that he has a d/b+1 poke. That is
just as good as the d+1 poke of other characters. He is BEST
played out crouch dash distance. Dont let him get into this
position. Chances are he will shadow step out of hellsweeps,
and stand back. His CD game is very good, so you want to poke
ALL his CD's. Make sure you dont let him get to CD distance.
Stay in his face and poke like mad. Dont let him do anything.
The Twin Pistons d/f+1,2 is a good juggle starter, be careful
of this. You should SS+4 whenever you feel a mid\high move
comming out. He wont stop in the middle of a Crouch Dash.
Or if he is wave stepping, again, a SS+4 should stop him.

Remember, Heihachi is uncannily deadly from all angles, My advice,
is to SS+4 whenever you can, Keep in his face and poke him head
to head. His CD game is very good, dont let him use it.


Throw. Whenever you can, stop the momentum of his strings. Dont
go toe toe with strings, you will lose. And loose a lot of your
life to boot. His kicks are very fast, fast and deadly. Once
you are in the air, he will kick like crazy to keep you up there.

If you are against a string player, watch his strings carefully
for one round, or before you challenge, and learn the ones he uses,
then, its a simple matter of poking or throwing Hwoarang, and poking
in the small time he leaves open between string connections.
The secret is, a lot of moves hit mid\high. Very few of his
kicks will actually hit low. CD is an option, but only if you know
that the move coming hits high, else you are taking the risk of
getting kicked. The SS+4 is your best friend. Stay back out of
his way, and look for openings, and SS+4 or f,f,N+1 your way into

Crazy Legs: This is a Class of its own. This is a very dangerouse
way to play old BOB here. I have no tacticts VS this, just stay low
and POKE like mad. Dont do any lag moves, and try not to get confused
by the amounts of moves that soon follow. Crazy Legs depend on the
player, but is very pattenised. Just watch for a pattern, and look
for oppenings to destroy your opponent.

Jack 2:

Raw Power. Watch out for his uppercuts, and SS moves, they can do
the damage. And he is faster than people estimate, so take care.
He has mostly the same moves as Mr M G Jack, with lack of a few
and gain of some others. Watch out for his Ram, it seems to go
down well with scrubs and masters alike, and also his SS arsenal.
The SS arsenal is mostly high, that doesnt mean stay low, cause
you will eat a double knuckle in the head and that would hurt.
No no, just SS and poke. Get in his face, and wait for a botch
up of Wiff. Then nail him. On Paper, should be easy. IRL, not
so much.


Jun is VERY string based, and a lot of moves can be ducked. She is
an easy kill all in all. Just stay low, and headbutt. Also, sidestep
whenever she wiffs a move, and punish her. Watch out for the Can Can
kicks d+3+4 thou, those things are leathal to their name. They are not
like jins can can kicks, she must have been having a period when
teching him those, cause something went VERY wrong. But anyway, the
most favourite string to scrubs is the Punch Punch Sweep X3 and from
start again. It is easy to low parry the sweep. Watch out for the
No Hand Cartweel Thingee thou.. (The thing were she flips sideways
and hits with both her legs, you know the one, I forgot the name)
And poke her out of her long boring strings, and teach them that
Roger\Alex is a force to be reconed with.
Else all in all its nice and easy.

Now, a master. Stay out of his reach. Once he juggles you,
do whatever nessesary to get up. DONT STAY DOWN. Cause
once you are, you have a problem. Jun is VERY good at dishing out
damage to air and ground opponents, and more so when it comes to
juggling them. If you get in close, expect strings. Low parry when
the sweeps come along, they almost always do, and interupt whatever
comes out high. Again the Can Can Kicks are a favourite in this
recipie for destruction. Keep that in mind. This is going to be
a greuling matchup of skill and poking, good luck.


Scrubs? Learn the breaks and beat them up. EASY.

Masters?? Get in close and poke. This is going to be a war,
and watch out for the multi's, default to {1} for your break
after you miss the first {2} break. Chances are, if there not
good, they will do the Giant Swing. Else watch their hands,
and if they do the Mussle Buster, default to {2} again.
All kings multis have {1} as a break in them.. Just learn that and
you should be fine against throwers.

Now, a master will utalise his pokes, and his strategical
moves. He has a fast hopkick, that leads into small damage
juggles, that can put a world of pain on if you get thrown
on the ground. The most prefered ground throw is the Head Bomber.
The break for it is {2} so if you are ground thrown, do this.

Poking kings are more anoying, they tend to use a lot of standing
pokes, more so, you should realy be standing against king, if he
crouchdashes, poke with a d+1. Watch out, king has the d+1, N+2
as well, and its a little slower? Anyway, it is still devistating.
His new poke, is the d/f+1,2 that does an elbow sting, into a gutpuch.
This is stoped by poking yourself.

Ok, now, king likes to throw. Most of his damage come from throws.
The most used command throw is the Muscle Buster. A break of 1+2.
Then again, the other one is the giant swing. Which has a break of {1}
So an idea is to push 1, hold, and press 2 for a break. This should
break any throw that has a break of 1 or 1+2. Watch for the mid throw
moves that can leave you in a position that you can be ground thrown.

This is one time I must say, Poke like crazy, and GO head to head
with his crouch dashes. If he crouchdashes, do the same. He might
do the double knuckle out of the crouchdash, but your AGF will beat
him out of it anyway. And slap him with a counter to boot for good
damage. Dont go head to head with king throwing, being a King master
entitles you to know the breaks for king too, which are the same as
Rogers\Alexs so just stay safe, poke, SS+4 and Hopkick, and anoy
king into submission.


Dont get hit by the fart. Easy as that. Nah, Kuma is a force to be
reconed with. The new Bear Stance is very nasty, and can keep away
a bulldoging opponent really well, just be careful, he has a few
options from here, namely a bear fling, that hits mid, and also
a bear swipe, that is like a fast poke. If this hits, the harder
right hand swipe is unstopable, and quite damaging, however, this
will take him out of the stance. Also, when he is in this stance,
he can not block at all. This is handy, cause you can CD into an
AGF which will hit for good damage.

Poke anything else he does, watch out for his deamon paw uppercut.
I think everyone would agree that this IS his best juggle starter.
It can launch you up, for a quick tag or good damaging juggles.
So watch out. The circus roll is tagable, so if you get cought
by this, you can expect to be hit by the partner soon after.

His fastest poke is the f+1, which combos into a G-Clef Cannon.
The Cannon does good dammage, juggles and is taggable, so watch
out. Else, his d+1 has an uncanny range, and is fast, so it will
stop pretty much anything you try and do if your not careful.

His f+1+2 hits high now, and is pretty much faster than T3 so
watch out. Do a lot of SS and WS moves. And really poke him to
submission. Break the Circus Roll whenever you can, and if
you dont, be ready for damage. Else, just be careful..

I have never played an expert Kuma before. Any help anyone??


Watchout for the d/f+2 cause that's gonna hurt. Else you should
be pretty ok. Just keep an eye out for her tricky tactics. 
She has the d+1+2 were she disapears into the floor for a bit,
and raises back up. The other disapearing act she does, she comes
out of the roof with unblockables. This is not actually that
dangerouse, a standing 4 kick will stop her from hitting you
most of the time, the hit, though unblockable, follows a very
narrow path straight down. So anything to be hit by it, must be
directly under it. The other real damaging things are her
Poison Wind d+3+4, which is easy to avoid, and her SS+3+4.
Which is like rogers SS+4 but not as cool. I have never faced
a good Kuni before, so do not know much. I think its a lot like


This is pretty much GREULING. Don't let him juggle you, you will
be in a world of pain.. Just stay out, and try not to get caught
on a CH with the 1-Inch. Else, the Dragon Slide, and the Dragon
Tail are his main low moves. Wait for a nice high flip and smack
him with a AGF or Windup Punch (F,N+1) Just sorta stay back, and
do a lot of Animal Sweeps (SS+4). Otherwise poking will beat him
out of anything big he migh try to do. Watch out for his WS
position, he has a BIG uppercut that can lead to a WORLD of pain
on a good tag juggle. His Junkyard Combo (B+2,3,4) is a favourite
with scrubs. They try to mix it up with his other Dragon Punch
Combo (Is that what its called?? B+1,2,1) Don't even let him start
it. As soon as you see the first punch, D+1. Easy fix. Else, if you
know its the Junkyard, lowparry the 3. And do a hopkick for a nice
little juggle.  The other problem you may face is he has a fast,
and I mean FAST flip from the d+2 punch. This may be a problem
for any rush moves, as the d+2 will stop you, and the flip will
send you right up for some mean damage. Otherwise, he has a parry
(Just found that out. =) ) And a wierd dance punch parry. While hes
dancing hes fodder for the f,f,N+1. Otherwise, you should be able
to poke like mad. And stop almost everything else. Just low parry
the second hit of the junkyard combo. PLEASE!


Kookie is the right word for this guy. A lot of people do the razor
rush into a stance (f,n+1,2,1,2,4) Just remember if Lei does the
last kick, he goes into a Crane stance were he CAN NOT block. There
are also (To my knowledge, I only just started playing lei) high
or low hits from the crane stance. Get low, and ready yourself for
a headbut. That will stop most lei's in their tracks. If you are
against a HAHAHA lei, then you have a problem. Try to pull off as
much damage as you can. And make Lei come to you. If you have someone
who can Tag Slide, do this when you can.. Else, if they can slide and
the whole HAHAHA Lei thing is happening, wait till he does the HAHAHA
and slide him. Chances are he will do a MID punch to stop you and
will go off his feet. Otherwise, just look out for the RAVE SPIN,
(d/b+4,4) If he does this and you block, stay low and do an Animal
Headbutt. If Lei lies down FU/FA Do the Ali Kicks. Dont get near him
cause he could Rave Spin or Kangaroo Kick, just beat him up. Thats
what Ali-Kicks are for. If he is lying FD/FA watch out for the slide.
All his moves are pretty much low, so go in carefully, stay low, and
get ready to block the slide attempt. The other thing, while I remember,
is dont attack a backturned one. It is bad for your health.
The other thing I have learned, is people tend to prefer certain moves
from certain stances, if you watch carefully, you may be able to
anticipate anything that may be coming.


What to say, ling will stay low, REAL low, get in on her. She's fast,
so watch out for her WS+2 that can lead to a MEAN juggle. Her juggles
are FINATICAL so dont let her get you up. A lot of her moves are low.
Do a lot of Knuckle Bombs (F+1+2) and Ali-Kicks to keep her at her
distance, and a lot of Animal Headbutts (WC+1+2) To discourage her
from getting close. All in all this is a nasty battle. And should
not be taken lightly. If its a scrub thou, pulling out those dumb
Phoenix Stance, roll around throws, just duck and Animal Headbutt
till they die. Oh, and remember the most USEFUL move against ling.
USE the D+1 WHENEVER you need it. Its going to be a NASTY poking
game. The thing with ling, is a master will be all over the place,
dont try to throw a backturned ling, you are gonna get hurt somink
KRONIK. Ling can poke fast, and is made for poking, so you have to
be ready to unleash all your fast and low power moves at a distance
to prevent being juggled. A f,f,N+1 is the best thing against a back
turned ling. Else, good luck. Its gonna be a war.

Machine Gun Jack:

What to say, he is NOTHING like Ganryu, just poke him till he goes
BALISTIC. Thats it. SS+4 heaps, mixed with the Hopkick, and all in
all you should be able to beat him EASY. SHOULD is the key word. On
paper this is all good, IRL against a master, its a different matter.
Watch out for throws, and make sure you dont stay too low. A few of
Mr. M G Jacks moves are power low, but they are slow. PARRY THEM
whenever you get the chance, and remember his guns ARE blockable.
He has, as I have discovered, a very fast d/f+2 uppercut, with good
distance, mid hitting, and doing decent juggles can make you loose
a good portion of your life. Else a lot of his moves are pure, raw,
unadaulterated power, and are not very hard to stop.

Also, watch out for the Dark Greeting PLEASE!! This move is EASY to
stop, and so many people get hit. One more thing. Dont anticipate
what he is going to do next from the Scissors. Its either a low
Scissors or a good Megaton Punch. All in all, you can do a d+1
before the second move comes out. Then go into a poking frenzy,
from string to string, don't let him do anything. He is very slow
in the long run, and relys greatly on his power play. So just poke
untill your opponent tags, and realises his Gun Jack is neautralised.
Then again, if you fight a scrub, laugh.

A master.. Good Luck.


See all Chars. Just learn the stances so you know who he is!!


Dont do the Rolling Animal Kicks, you will eat Bloody Scissors soo
fast. Keep out of his kicks, and watch out for his F+2 and his
f,f+2. The hand snap thingee can be sidesteped after the first block,
but that doesnt leave you with much initiative, if none at all.
D+1 helps alot, also the AGF. Forget the Infinate Kicks, no one in there
right mind will do them. Or a smart person will do the first few hits,
which I might add does DAMN nasty damage.. And then stop. If they like
to continue them thou, a simple SS+4 will stop them very quickly.

A good idea is to watch out for his legs. They are very long, and
can be very damaging if your not careful. But any ogre will try
to initiate his crouch game, the range of moves from this position
is too good to give up. Also, when you are down, watch out for his
double fist cannon ball thing that he does. It hits grounded opponents
for more damage than I would apreciate taking, and that, other than
his SS+4 wich is a type of sweep, is about the only ground hitting
moves he has, but dont think that is not enough, because it is.

If you get in close, throw him and get back out again. Its as easy as
that. A master will do a lot more of his kicks thou, and you will
have to go toe to toe in hopes that your jabs are faster..


This guy is the Deathfist masher of the millenium. Most likely,
you will face nothing but 10-Stringers or Deathfist Junkies.

All you have to do is poke. If by chance, you do face an opponent
that manages to use paul more than with Deathfist alone, then you
will have to watch out for his Elbow QCF+1, into juggle with deathfist
ender. The Falling Hammer combo's, like the deathfist\falling leaf
combination, just do a d+1 to stop whatever comes out. Its always
useful against what ever he is doing, Paul is boring, and I am not
going to say much more about it. I mean, simple pokes and SS+4
should surfice.


This guy is wierd. Get out of his way, and watch out for his SS. Dont
wiff and you cant loose. Well thats an understatement. Hehe..

Dont get hit by the F+1+2 or you will hurt. And dont get juggled either
cause Jin gonna come in and lay the smack down on you.. Else POKE and
Throw. Nice and easy. Never faced a master before, and I bet you wont

But chances are if you do face one, you will proberbly be in pain.
I have never faced one, so go for your life.

True Ogre:

This is a POKE war. POKE EVERYTHING you can. Your D+1 can beat ANYTHING
he tries to do AT ALL. And that is all you really need. Just POKE like
Crazy!! And you should be fine for a while. Make sure you dont let him
get any moves off, and if he does, SS or Duck or whatever. JUST MAKE HIM
WIFF!! And you should be sweet as for the damage. If you really feel like
going head to head try a lot of throws. Thats fun watching a Kangaroo
throw a Dragon around.. Also, watch out for his crouch games, and his
Headbutt juggle starter. Otherwise, as Reverend C said in his "Anna FAQ
the D+1 should stop anything he does."


Watch out for the d/f+2. Fastest uppercut in the game. And the juggles
with damage are VERY good. Just dont get caught. SS a lot, and hopkick.
This is really all you can do. A good Yoshi will have you lost in strings.
A bad one will do nothing but his Crap 10-String, which I might add can
be poked at 6 different points in time. Just dont let his dancing around
intimidate you. Get into him, and throw him around a bit. He has one
command throw, so learn to break it. And watch out for unblockables.
The unblockables have good tracking, so dont try to SS and get in close,
chances are your gonna get stabed. At that wouldnt help at all..
Also, watch out for the Roo kick, that can lead to BIG juggles. If you
get caught by it thou, you must have been sleeping. Cause its SLOW..

Keep in mind that he has the sword slash for Okizeme, that can be
rolled sideways out of.


Roger\Alex are fun players, and should be played as such. Dont get mad
if you loose, just learn and get better. There is no point in winning
when you dont learn more of how to win. Just get in there and have fun.
He can be VERY competitive when it comes to tourneys, so dont count him
out of those, and just get ready for people to laugh when they see who
you choose. Cause personally, I dont when I know a good Roger\Alex is
standing next to me. I know I am about to be in a new world of pain.






Abrar, definitely... Kuma/Roger is UNSTOPPABLE!!!

StatiK, Cause he takes roger to new heights.

Castel, since we're on Zaibatsu EVERY day checkin'
moves/combos/strats and since he's such a nice guy...
He makes life SO much easier...

All the rocking legends at tekken on TekkenZaibitsu that
gave me input on other chars and how to beat them...

Namco, for bringing back Roger...now we can forgive you for
Eddy, Hwoarang, Baek, and the list goes on!!

Synner for being a legend Roger Player.

FIRESEAL cause hes a rocking legend, and did the custom strings
section OH SO WELL, Rock on man, and keep playing ROGER!

Anyone I've missed for whatever I missed. Lol.
