Unlike the other movelists at GameFAQs, this one is formatted for printing. 
It's very compact, only containing the movelists for all characters. We 
strongly recommend you to print this guide, which is only seven pages long. 
If you do, make sure that the font is set to Courier New and that the size 
of the text isn't larger than ten.

                                1. INTRODUCTION


So I was playing Marvel vs. Capcom 2 the other day, and was really only 
fooling around, experimenting with different character combinations. Then I 
noticed how irritating it was not having a proper in-game movelist to 
consult while playing. Printing the huge movelists at GameFAQs felt pretty
unnecessary so I came up with an idea and suggested it to my brother
Christopher, who is experienced in writing movelists for fighting games. 
That he and I would write a complete movelist for all characters in Marvel
vs. Capcom 2 for players to be able to consult whenever they need to know 
a character's complete move-set. 

So now we're finished. This is a movelist which only contains the necessary
information, formatted in a printer friendly document. Heed our warning, 
though. You need to have some basic knowledge of the game mechanics to fully
appreciate this FAQ. We advice you to seek this knowledge in either the 
manual or Kao Megura's marvellous FAQ at GameFAQs.com. Be sure to thoroughly
read the legend, comprehensively written by my brother, before using the 
movelist. It's best to have this legend at hand while reading the movelist. 
We hope that you will find our FAQ useful and we wish you happy reading.

In each of the characters' movelists you'll find the same information. First
off we have the name and command of each Special Move and Hyper Combo of the
character. Nothing hard to understand, just look at the Command Shortenings
below and you'll be able to use them. 

Beside the name and command of the moves you'll see a lower-case letter 
written in brackets. This is a small explanation of the nature of the move 
in question. For example you'll see a (p) beside the classic Hado-Ken move.
This simply states that the move is a projectile one. But more about that 
in the Explanation Shortenings below. If there are two different letters
in the same brackets it means that the move fits into both groups of moves.

Furthermore you'll sometimes see another letter to the right of the move.
That one states in which Assist Type the move in question can be made as an 
Variable Assist or Variable Combination. The letter is an upper-case one and
it is either A, for the Alpha Assist Type (1st); B, for the Beta Assist Type
(2nd); or G, for the Gamma Assist Type (3rd). We won't state which moves 
become the Variable Counters for each assist type. If you need to find that 
information you can use my own Assist Types FAQ on GameFAQs.com.

"How will I know if a move is a Special Move or a Hyper Combo?" you might
ask yourself. Simple, the Special Moves are always the ones written first;
the Hyper Combos start off where you see three lines in a row. And do not 
fear if you see a regular move amongst the Special Moves for some 
characters, the reason for this is simply that the character who uses the 
regular attack has a Variable Assist in one or more of his/her Assist Types.

P: Any punch button (S or T in the default controller setting)  
PP: Both punch buttons (S+T or the R1 in the default controller setting)
LP: The light punch (S in the default controller setting)  
MP: The mid-damage punch (is performed as the second attack if you push S 
    twice in a row during a match)
HP: The heavy punch (T in the default controller setting) 
K: Any kick button (X or O in the default controller setting)  
KK: Both kick buttons (X+O or the R2 in the default controller setting)
LK: The light kick (X in the default controller setting)  
MK: The mid-damage kick (is performed as the second attack if you push X 
    twice in a row during a match)
HK: The heavy kick (O in the default controller setting) 
N/A: This means that the move only is available for usage in a Variable 
     Assist or Variable Counter, thus isn't available when you're using the
     character yourself 
c: Hold down the direction or button that is stated after the letter 
   for a short while, commonly known as a charge
r: Press the button rapidly
taunt: The taunt button (select in the default controller setting)

I'll write a comma (,) if you are to push the direction right after each-
I'll write a plus (+) if you shall push the two buttons together.
I'll write a slash (/) if you can use either one of the two buttons the
slash separates.
I'll write all direction in lower-case letters. For example: f=forward.

Besides ordinary directions there are special ones. The last direction
in such a series directions should be pressed simultaneously with a kick,
a punch or a taunt.
qf: Quarter-circle forward. Press the control pad down, down-forward and 
    forward. Ryu's hado-ken move is an example of this command where a 
    punch follows.
qb: Same as with quarter-circle forward but the move goes backwards instead.
sf: Forward, down, down-forward. The most famous move using this combination
    is probably Ryu's Shoryu-Ken (hence the name).
sb: Backward, down, down-backward.
hf: Half-circle forward. Backward, down-backward, down, down-forward, 
hb: Half-circle backward. Forward, down-forward, down, down-backward, 
360: Rotate the control pad.

(p): The move is a projectile one. It is long-ranged but your character 
     won't move during the execution of it. For example Ryu's Hado-Ken.
(a-a): The move works as an anti-air attack. The move will hurt opponents
       above the attacker.
(d): The move is a dashing move. The move is more or less long-ranged, but
     this time the attacker will move forward whilst performing it.
(t): The move works as a throw. Often you have to be close to the opponent
     to perform the move.
(c): The move is a capture type move.
(co): The move is a counter. Your opponent has to strike you for it to work.
(a): The move can ALSO be performed while jumping.
(ax): The move can ONLY be performed while jumping.
(f): The move makes the character fly. Perform it once more to ground the 
(tg): The move uses up three Hyper Combo gauges, when executed.
(vb): The move requires that you press various buttons to execute damage.
(n): The move is a normal move. The character won't move at all nor send any 
     flying objects of any kind whilst performing the move.
(h): The move heals another character, always a Variable Assist.
(pu): The move causes another character's power to increase, always a 
      Variable Assist.
(du): The move causes another character's defence to increase, always a 
      Variable Assist.
(w): The move teleports (warps) your character.
(s): The move doesn't fit into any of the other groups. Sometimes we'll 
     specify what happens.
