Cons: The pattern sets up big gems making easy combos and huge attacks. Win Quotes: "I'm the strongest puzzle fighter in the world!" "I'm too smart to fall for your stupid patterns." "Sorry! But I don't know how to pull punches." Player Skill: Somebody who wants a challenge. Extra notes: Just horrible. ~~~~~~ Sakura 2.4 ~~~~~~ Name: Sakura Counter Pattern: GBBBBY GRRRRY GBBBBY GRRRRY Pros: Her counter makes it hard to setup chains when fighting her. Cons: The two columns on both sides and the small rows are attack points. Win Quotes: "Only my second game and I'm already the best!" "Whew, you were good! I've got to train harder!" "Yes... all part of the plan." "You're smart, fast, and cheap! No wait, that's me! Ha ha ha." Player Skill: Normal-Expert Extra Notes: A good all round character, using big attacks will render the enemy useless. ~~~~~~~~ Morrigan 2.5 ~~~~~~~~ Name: Morrigan Counter Pattern: YBGGBY YBGGBY BYRRYB BYRRYB Pros: Well protected counter pattern which is hard to break into. Cons: Useful for most only the first stages where enemies don't have good strategies against her, but in later stages she has less capabilities. Win Quotes: "Baby, baby, baby... I didn't even sweat!" "It's not whether I win or lose, just as long as I piss you off." "Oh damn... I split a hair." "The sun's rising. I'll rest 'til the morrow, then again." Player Skill: Novice-Normal Extra Notes: Pretty solid character, it just gets too complicated later. ~~~~~~~ Felicia 2.6 ~~~~~~~ Name: Felicia Counter Pattern: GBBRRY GBBRRY GRRBBY GRRBBY Pros: She is good for long chains. Cons: She has a horrible counter pattern that makes large chains easy. Win Quotes: "I won by a tail's length. Now go to my litter box." "Meow! How'd you like them apples?" "You're stoned! Get it? Ha ha ha..." "You're about as sharp as a circle!" Player Skill: Beginner-Anybody who wants a challenge. Extra Notes: Ok, but not good for Normal and Hard mode. ~~~~~~~~ Hsien-Ko 2.7 ~~~~~~~~ Name: Hsien-Ko Counter Pattern: GGRRYY BGGRRY BBGGRR YBBGGR Pros: Has a great pattern for mid-large attacks and huge attacks. Cons: When Diamond Gem is used the attack pattern turns into big gems. Win Quotes: "And again, I won with ease." "Hey, it's not time for you to walk away. Try again." "Why do you hold back? Your overconfidence is your weakness!" Player Skill: Normal-Expert. Extra Note: Very good when in trouble, funny to watch her use the Super. ~~~~~~~ Donovan 2.8 ~~~~~~~ Name: Donovan Counter Pattern: GGGBBB GGGBBB RYRYRY RYRYRY Pros: Good for blocking the making of power gems, and he also has a counter pattern that is pretty hard to take advantage of. Cons: Small attacks or really big attacks leave huge chains or power gems so Diamond Gems are lethal. Win Quotes: "I'm the one who lives in darkness and shatters it." "No one can interfere with my plans." "I'll do anything to make this little girl happy again!" "I'll put an end to the evil curse in my blood at all cost." Player Skill: Most skill levels. Extra Note: Very good when you get a hang of him, his pattern makes him very useful for mid damage attacks, his Super is very cool also. :) ^^|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|^^ Hidden Characters 3.0 ^^|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|*|^^ ~~~ Dan 3.1 ~~~ Name: Dan Counter Pattern: RRRRRR RRRRRR RRRRRR RRRRRR Pros: He is the optimal character to practice your power gems against. Cons: When playing as him you deliver big packages of reds for power gems. Win Quotes: "Amateur! Go home and practice Dragon Punches." "I'm going to make you cry like I did when my daddy died!" "I thought I taught you well! You know nothing! Dummy!" "Yeah! I'm the strongest there is! Just don't tell Sagat..." Player Skill: Anybody who wants a *HUGE* challenge. Extra Note: Play against him if you want a huge power gem. ~~~~~ Akuma 3.2 ~~~~~ Name: Akuma Counter Pattern: RYBGRY YBGRYB BGRYBG GRYBGR Pros: His attack pattern is hard to setup chains against. Cons: If you use a Diamond and his diagonal pattern is penetrated, and his attack is crippled. (See Note) Win Quotes: "I am Akuma! Also the master puzzler!" "Evil is what I am. Death is what I bring." "You are a pathetic example of carbon based wastage!" "To beat you is not enough, I must destroy you!" Player Skill: Expert Extra Note: I say the best level of player to use Akuma is an expert because he has to first be unlocked which requires at least a Normal player and he is best used by an expert. He only does 1/2-2/3 of normal attacks so he is weakened down to make his less powered. ~~~~~~~ Devilot 3.3 ~~~~~~~ Name: Devilot Counter Pattern: YRGBYR BYRGBY GBYRGB RGBYRG Pros: She has the best attack pattern. Cons: She also has a crippled attack, I like Akuma better though. Win Quotes: "Don't you recognize me? Cyberbots is Capcom's 1 game." "I know you want me, but can you handle it?" "Let the gems hold you as I plan for your death." "You've been very bad. Now off to the gas chamber." Player Skill: Normal-Expert Extra Note: She has the best attack pattern, yes better than Akuma, because even though her attack pattern is just switched her counter pattern is harder to penetrate and Diamond Gems are not as effective as they are on Akuma. I say she is Normal-Expert because even the people who have played for about 4-10 hours can be good with her, and Expert just know how to use her in a better way. ^^|*|*|*|*|^^ Notes 4.0 ^^|*|*|*|*|^^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Notes/Strats/Ect 4.1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Stratagies: I always like to stack the blocks on the left hand side of the screen and then switch stacking sides to unleash chains of weak attacks and when I get a Diamond Gem. After I get the Diamond gem I look around and estimate which block I have the most of, the mass destruction of blocks will often trigger chains which will dramatically increase your chances of winning. On "Easy" mode you will have to fight three opponents, the strategy I recommend is building up power blocks and using crash gems on the rest of the blocks. When using this strategy I recommend dropping the blocks at a faster pace than your opponent so you can get little combos to add up because the opponents do not push the blocks down as fast as possible so you can add up small blocks to make medium-large combos. On "Normal" and "Hard" mode you can use my strategy that I mostly use. If you have any other good strategies contact me and I will put them up if I see they are worthy of using, this of course gets you credit in this guide. Notes: Diamond Gem Damage- Usually the Counter Gems are worth less than one ~0.5, but all other gems are worth 1, non-differential if they are regular, crash, or power gems. For example, if you have a 3x3 Power Gem you should save it for a crash gem because it will give you an attack of ~22 in comparison to a weak 9 if the power gem is destroyed with the use of a Diamond Gem. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Contact Info 4.2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~ If you want to contact me you can contact me on my e-mail, spikeddeath (at) gmail (dot) com, just replace the () with the appropriate symbol.
