  • High Attack: (H) Square or Triangle
  • Mid Attack: Square or Triangle + X
  • Low Attack: (L) X
  • Special Attack: (S) Circle
  • Guard: (G) To defend High and Mid Attacks, the character can automatically block by standing upright and facing the opponent. For Low Attacks, the character will be able to defend by using the Crouching Guard. However, the character cannot Guard against Special Attacks. Guarding is also not effective against attacks when the opponent's body glows red. Since Guarding is not possible in these cases, try to evade the attack. There will be times when the character's body will glow blue. This is to signal that the character's back is facing the opponent. Characters in this position will not be able to defend themselves.
  • Interrupt: If a character performs a Special Attack at the same time as the opponent, the character will perform a Guard and automatically counterattack. This also applies when standing on the ground and receiving the opponent's attack. Certain attacks may not be interrupted.
  • Just Frame Technique: (J) It is possible to perform a special technique while pressing buttons at a specific time during an attack. When these commands have been executed successfully, the point of contact is surrounded in a burst of blue energy and a "J" will show up on the technique list. The timing is different for ech technique, so it is best to try various timings.

Pushing the box at the opponent is possible by stepping close to the box and executing a move consisting of the G + H + L combination. Items and weapons may appear when a box is destroyed. Use these items to an advantage.
Note: Except for the final stage, boxes can be turned on or off in the options menu.
    • Recovery: If blown back by an attack, Guarding in a timely manner before falling to the ground will enable the character to recover and avoid down time. This will also work if attacked in the air.

If the PSX opening scene is to be used as reference, I'd say the airship crash landed in Hong Kong, (or just landed without problem) and the player now must face Shuwen. After beating him, the player moves on to get a train for the ancient ruins. I wonder if they were fighting for the last train ticket? :P

The ancient ruins. According to the quest mode, the ruin appears to be from around 1000 B.C.

  • Max Height: 0 M (VS mode)

In the mysterious high tech place inside the ancient ruins, the player is attacked by an equally mysterious ninja. But one thing is clear: This ninja is a tough opponent, and he is determined to obtain Ehrgeiz, so the player's character will struggle against him. If the player manages to reach this stage and defeat Sasuke in less than 6 minutes and 40 seconds, (03'20"00 in single round matches) the player will continue by a different path, where Final Fantasy VII characters Cloud Strife and Tifa Lockhart will appear before Django. In the arcade version, this stage has a mirror match, and Sasuke appears in the stage of the player's character.

Cloud Strife

Cloud Strife

Character ID: 0A (10)
Voice actor: Nozomu Sasaki

Cloud Strife, named Guardian when fought by the player in the arcade version, is a Final Fantasy VII guest character. "An ex-SOLDIER of the Shinra Company who now works freelance. The large sword he carries has the destructive power to split anything in two."

Cloud's 3rd costume (SOLDIER)

Stage 9: Elevator
An elevator going underground. The music that plays here is Let the Battles Begin!.

Tifa Lockhart

Tifa Lockhart

Character ID: 0B (11)
Voice actor: Yuko Minaguchi

Tifa Lockhart, named Summoner when fought in the arcade version, is a Final Fantasy VII guest character. "A childhood friend of Cloud's, and a member of AVALANCHE, an anti-Shinra revolutionary group. In addition to being the poster girl at a pub in the slums, she is adept in the Zangan-ryu martial arts practice. Thus, her fists and legs are quite destructive."

Tifa's 3rd costume (Nibelheim)

Stage 10: Underground
Deep underground the ruins, in an area that looks like a reactor. The music that plays in this stage is Prelude.



Django (ジャンゴ)

Character ID: 0C (12)

"Awaits visitors in the back of the ruins. A mystical creature seeking a mysterious force. A veil of mystery shrouds this particular character."

His attacks are similar to certain characters in Tobal 2 (Dog, Ikkaku, Tri Horn, Spike Shield, ...), and his second color makes him similar to the Final Fantasy VII character Red XIII.

Long path in arcade map

Short path in arcade map

Stage 9 or 11: Computer
A veil of mystery shrouds this stage. That's all I will say. After beating Django in the arcade version, he will slowly walk to the background, jump down in the empty space, and the stage explodes.



Character ID: 05

? (nicknamed "Red Scorpion" in some sites, or is that its official name?[citation needed]) is the final boss, with attacks identical to Django's. Besides the appearance, the difference is that it can't use items and is immune to all attacks, except for weapons found in boxes (If cheats are used to control ?, it is impossible for a mirror match to have a winner. Except with the use of more cheats.). To defeat ? break the two boxes in the stage and use the swords inside them to slain the beast, and several items will fall from the boss (Is it a pinata?). Collect all items to obtain Ehrgeiz.

I see you!

Final stage (unnamed)

No information available for the boss and stage. "?" may be Django's 2nd form, as in the arcade version it falls from above in the beginning of the battle, or just a being that coincidentally has the same attacks. This battle has a time limit, but the player will win regardless of the outcome. The only character affected by this battle is Han Daehan, who has two endings. (? drops his leg when defeated)

There are no ending (and opening) movies in the arcade version, but if the player obtains Ehrgeiz, the character used will appear running out of the Dig Site (and going to the stairs in the beginning of the PSX's quest mode), suggesting that if Ehrgeiz isn't obtained, the player either was killed by ?, got stuck in the ruins, or is just taking the time to search Ehrgeiz.

Ehrgeiz (PSX)

Ehrgeiz (Arcade)


Rio in the ranking screen from arcade version


Character ID 00

Rio is a dog or wolf that only appears running from Jo in one of the ranking screens from the arcade version that appears by leaving the game standstill for a long time. Rio's appearance was cut in the PSX version, but it is possible to play as Rio with cheat codes. Rio's attacks are the same of Django and "?", except that it can't use Special Attacks.

Ranking screen scenes:

  1. Godhand sitting in the corner of the Dome
  2. Yoko sitting in the Roof
  3. Sasuke standing in the top of the Airship
  4. Shuwen practicing martial arts in Hong Kong
  5. Inoba following the Train by foot (Arcade version only)
  6. Jo and Rio running around the Coliseum (Arcade version only)
  7. Prince Doza dozing in the Dig Site
  8. Han training in the Shelter
  9. Just an empty Elevator going down
  10. And back to Godhand in Dome, repeating the circle

While all eight playable characters and stages (excluding Cloud, Tifa, Django, and their stages, at least when not unlocked) appear in the arcade version fight demonstrations, in the PlayStation version only Godhand, Inoba, Yoko, and Cloud appear.

Who the heck are you?

By the way, the PSX version has some leftovers from the arcade version in its data, including some early names of the characters:

  • Eirie Ann
  • Cloud Strife
  • 三島拳 GODHAND (Ken Mishima Godhand)
  • 狼少女JOE (Wolf Girl Joe)
  • Lee Shuwen
  • Dasher Inoba
  • 弾 Dan Guts
  • Sasuke
  • Prince Naseem
  • Yoyo Yoko
  • Han Daehan
  • 三島平八 (Heihachi Mishima)
  • 一八DEVIL (Devil Kazuya)
  • Tifa Lockheart
  • Here, Jo and Tifa are misnamed, two Tekken characters appear (Godhand is named after one of them), and there are two unused names: Eirie Ann and Dan Guts. Dan is probably the guy in the unused portrait. (Or that may be an early version of Godhand. He was quite different early, and Prince Naseem was written as "Nazime") As for Ann... Well, the arcade version may contain more data of them. There are also three unused stage icons, one with a windmill in the background. And leftovers from the previous game, Tobal 2.

By the way, Rio is also the name of a Japanese woman shown in an early version of the game.
