Capcom vs. SNK 2: Millionaire Fighting
Hidden Bosses can be used once they have been defeated. The conditions
of the Bosses to appear are to fulfill two out of the following
three conditions. If you play with a Capcom groove you will get
God Rugal, and if you play with a SNK groove you will get Shin
etnbwo ld, shsil.
Achieve over 1500 GPS by the end of the game.
Defeat the Middle Boss (Geese or Bison/Vega).
Achieve at least one Finest KO.
To unlock Shin Akuma or Ultimate Rugal, defeat whoever shows up
as the final Boss. Choosing the Groove system and whatever character
goes with the Groove system is not needed. For example, defeating
Ultimate Rugal with Shin Akuma equipped with the N-groove in the
final stage will unlock him.
The Custom Groove option appears once a normal Boss has been defeated
(normal Gouki or Rugal). Normal Bosses appear by fulfilling two
of the four following conditions.
Achieve over 1000 GPS by the end of the game.
Achieve four or more special KOs.
Middle Boss has appeared.
Achieve two or more LV3 super combo KOs.
Press Start at the Groove selection screen.
Boss challenge mode:
Boss challenge mode becomes available under the following two
conditions. Both hidden Bosses (God Rugal, Shin Gouki) must already
be defeated and unlocked. Hold Triangle + Square
while selecting arcade mode.
One on three tag team mode:
Highlighter any fighter at the character selection screen and
press a button. Allow time to run out and the game will start
in one on three tag team mode. Note: Do not select one on one
Clear Boss challenge mode with no continues. The "Extra
Option" becomes available in the game.
Use the following trick to easily clear Boss challenge mode and
unlock the "Extra Option" mode. When both Shin Akuma
and Demon Rugal are unlocked, go to the main menu and enter the
arcade mode while holding Triangle + Square. While
still holding the buttons, select EX1 or EX2 Groove and Maki (the
girl). Then, when you start, never attack. Instead wait for your
opponent's attack and hit him with Maki's counter move. Use a
hard kick on the left of the controller. Note: Before starting,
go to the normal option, select the easiest difficulty setting
and increase the damage level.
Extra color edit mode options:
Press Start while editing the colors for your
character to display more options on the left side of the screen.
Infinite custom groove:
Defeat all characters straight in survival mode. The
custom groove option settings will become infinite.
Middle Boss conditions:
The middle Boss appears when the following conditions
are all fulfilled:
No time over has occurred.
The CPU has not made over six "first attacks".
The CPU has not made three or more Special KOs.
Hold Start + FP after winning a stage
to make your character say an opponent specific quote. Hold Start
+ FK to make the character talk with a team member.
S Groove gauge recharge:
When playing in S Groove mode, hold R1 + R2
to quickly recharge your gauge. Note: Your gaage must not be full
for this trick to work.
Hint: Akuba: Special combo:
To do one of the special combo moves, quickly press
Square(2), Toward, X, R1. Note: You
must have the C groove on with the default setting.
Hint: Kim: Extra attack:
Unlock the "Extra options" and change the
Groove Gauge to "Infinite". Choose Kim as one of your
fighters. When in battle, use his Phoenix Kick super move. When
you hit the opponent, he or she cannot maintain themselves in
the air after the hit. At the correct moment, you can hit them
again with the same attack. If timed correctly, you can do a 3-hit
combo/knockout with Kim's Phoenix Kick.
Hint: Kyosuke: Extra hit:
Execute any groove level Double Shadow Cut Kick (Down/Forward,
Down/Forward, then LK, MK, or HK). HK
or FK is recommended. As soon as Kyosuke executes his wave,
do another Shadow Cut Kick (Down/Forward followed by LK,
MK, or HK) and it will count as an extra hit. This
move can also be executed in Rival Schools as where it was originally
Hint: Mai: Chun-Li like appearance:
First, choose either Mai or Chin-Li. Then, choose the
opposite character. Mai will now look like Chun-Li.
Hint: Yun: Extra attack:
You can add an extra attack to his 3-hit super upper
punch attack. When you use the move, after you launch your opponent
in the air with the upper punch, wait for about half a second
and execute his push and stomp attack. You will immediately launch
your opponent to the other side of the screen, and the attack
calculator on the side will mark it as a 4-hit combo.
Hint: Getting a Finest KO:
Beat up your opponent until his/her life is low enough
to finish them off with a special KO. Stand near your opponent
and wait for them to taunt you. Then, do the special move and
you will get a finest KO. You also have to either beat the mini-Boss,
or receive 1500 GPS before you finish the final round in Osaka
to get to God Rugal.
Hint: Unlocking Shin Akuma and Ultimate
Use the character shown on the groove selection screen
(in arcade mode) on the left. For example, Ryu for C-groove, Terry
for N-groove, etc. The other character(s) can be anyone desired.
Doing this takes you to Ultimate Rugal if you picked one of the
Capcom grooves and characters, and to Shin Akuma if you picked
a SNK groove and character.
Hint: Easy Boss challenge mode:
Choose a good fighter such as Ken or Ryu. When you
are facing the last Boss, if you are losing by one round and there
is not a lot of power remaining, press Start on controller
two and repeat until you win.
Use Haomaru the samurai. He looks weak and slow, but his slash
and jump slash has a wide range and also does big damage. If you
jump around with Airguard equipped and slash at the correct time,
you will not have a problem defeating any Boss.
Hint: Easy survival mode:
After unlocking the Extra Options, go to "Option
Mode" at the main menu. Go to "Extra Options",
select "Player One Life Gauge Type" and change it to
"No Damage". Then, go to "Groove Gauge Type"
and change it to "Infinite". After this, start survival
mode and defeat all 46 characters without taking damage and your
Groove Bar will always be full.
There is an easy way to win when playing in "All Survival"
mode. Go to the options menu and set the difficulty to the minimum.
Next, set the damage level to maximum. Exit the menu and select
the "All Survival" mode. Choose the S Groove and continue
to the character selection screen. Then, choose Zangief. Keep
getting your opponent in the corner and grab him/her endlessly.
Notice that this move does more damage than before. The best damaging
move is the Russian Aerial Spin when done at its highest level.
Your enemy should go down quickly. It is possible to complete
the game in seventeen minutes by doing this. Note: You will fight
Shin Akuma and Ultimate Rugal at the end. After accomplishing
this, you will unlock the infinite edit Groove points.
Hint: Infinite combo:
If you have Ex 1 or Ex 2 groove with infinite groove
points, you can create a endless chain of level 2 super combos.
If Ex 1 or Ex 2 groove is like the C groove, you can use almost
any level 2 super combo if you have unlimited super combo gauge.
If you start with a level 2 super combo, you can keep hitting
your opponent until you want to stop. You just have to keep hitting
the buttons for the super combo. You can finish by doing any level
3 super combo. This works well for Ken's Shoryu Reppa or just
about any level 2 super combo, then finish with a level three
or one combo. This is useful for eliminating Bosses such as Ultimate
Rugal or Shin Akuma.
Hint: Easy points:
Set the levels on the easiest level and increase the
damage. Fight the first person. He or she is very easy. Do good
damage and make sure you end the first round with the Super Combo.
Play the second round. Beat them up, then press Start on
controller two to enter a versus fight. The points you have accumulated
just before the second player joins will be the same when you
return to fight the first person again. You will also have to
defeat them twice. You can keep repeating this process until you
have accumulated the desired amount of points.
Successfully complete all survivor mode, with any EX set if needed.
Attempt to create an EX groove greater than 4000 points. Answer
"Yes" and the game will allow you to do so.
If you want to unlock something, select SNK characters with a
SNK Groove (for God Rugal) and Capcom characters with a Capcom
Groove (for Shin Akuma). Keep fighting until you get to an easy
to defeat opponent. As soon as you defeat them, press Start
on controller two and choose someone. Defeat them, then you can
restart the "easy win" fight in arcade mode. Keep doing
this until you have 1500 GPS to fight Shin Akuma or God Rugal.
Hint: Goro Damien cameo:
Have a match featuring Kyo vs. Bermiriu (fighter who
puts his hair straight up) at the Shanghai stage to see a special
cameo by Goro Damien. He will be sitting in the background of
the rotating platform watching the fight, making gestures every
time someone gets hit.
Hint: Street Fighter 3
In any mode, go to the stage in England. At the
far right edge of the screen, you can see Dudley in the background
reading a newspaper. Dudley was a British boxer from the Street
Fighter 3 games.

Pair these characters together to have an interaction
with each other before the fight:
and Terrick Roberts.

Hint: Cameo appearances:
Look closely at the edge of the ring in the Shanghai
stage to see June from Star Gladiator, an early Capcom
fighting game. In the England stage, aside from Dudley, you can
see Elena from Street Fighter 3 at the left side of the
level, and Billy from Fatal Fury in front of the building
marked "C.V.S.". During the second part of that stage
(the night area that usually appears during the second round of
the fight), you can see Rose from Street Fighter Alpha
and Rouge from Power Stone having a conversation in the
same location where you saw Elena at the start of the first round.
In the Nairobi stage, look on top of the car on the left side
of the stage. You will see Falcon from Power Stone watching
In the African stage (the dunebuggy stage) there is a cameo appearance
by Falcon from Powerstone (man in red) and Leona Heidern
from King Of Fighters (girl in green). They are both on
top of a jeep on the left side of the stage.
Glitch: Move difference:
Unlock Shin Akuma and go to versus mode. Choose Akuma
vs. Shin Akuma and do each of their Shungokusatsu moves. Shin
Akuma's is a 33-hit and Akuma's is a 15-hit move.
