Hint: Higher survival mode score:
Collect as many items as possible. Another way to raise your score to live for a long time. You do not need to KO anyone -- if you look at the bottom left, you will notice that the score gets higher.

Hint: More survival mode items:
A sneaky way to get more items is to attack them while they are on the ground. Some characters need different buttons. For example, with Tina and Bass press Up and (Black or X + A + B) or Down + A. This is a great method to get Zack's third costume, higher scores, and live longer (since the food heals you).

Hint: Easy survival mode:
Choose single or team mode and two characters you are skilled with (Ayane and Kasumi recommended). When you start off, the first opponents are very easy to defeat. Once you get to about your seventh or eighth, it starts to get difficult. Always pick up the little icons that drop when they die. This brings up your health slightly. When the CPU opponent is on the ground, quickly press Down + Black as your second character (if playing in team attack mode). They will stomp on the opponent. Note: Sometimes the charter will miss due to the camera angle. When you stomp on the CPU opponent, an icon will appear from them. IF you are low on health, pick it up. When the CPU keeps attacking, grab their attack after the first hit. For example, when Zack keeps kicking you can grab his kick after the first hit if you are fast enough. If the CPU keeps switching characters, block and hit when you can, then quickly switch to your other characte. You can tell when they are going to switch by watching their health. Their first and second characters should be at the same amount of health. If one is lower, the CPU will recall the character with the lower health.

Hint: Theater mode :

Fight with Leifang only. When both battles are over. choose any characters at the character selection screen for player one, then a character for player two. Choose any girl character for the second choice for the player two and their chest will jiggle.

Hint: Nude women:
There are three nude women in test tubes in the DOATEC HK stage. You cannot see anything because of the position they are in. To find these girls, look for the window opposite to the one that leads to the street. You should start out near that window. Use a powerful attack to push your opponent through the window. If done correctly, you should now be in a fog filled room. Two of the women will be on one side of the room while the other one is on the opposite side. If you push your opponent into the set of test tubes with one woman, she will stretch her arms and resume her original position.

Hint: Ground attacks:
Each character has many ways of attacking while their opponent is on the ground. To find out how to do these attacks, go to command list and look for the ground attack list. This is very helpful in survival mode. Note: Each character has different ground attacks.

Hint: Finishing poses:
There are many finishing poses that can only be seen by winning a match without getting a single hit. It is recommended that you set the match to two rounds. It should say "Great!" the first time, and "Greatest!" the second time. Note: Each character only has two of these poses.

Hint: Alternate victory poses:
By making certain characters fight, the victory pose may change. For example, if Tina and Bass fight they will sometimes say something different after they win. Note: This does not work with all characters.

Hint: Alternate entrances:
Each character has one entrance that can only be viewed by losing a match against Genra. After continuing, Genra and your character will make their entrance; only this time it will be different.

Hint: Alternate partner team attacks:
Instead of using the original teams such as Ayane and Hyate, Hitomi and Zack, and Tina and Bass, try using these character combinations to see some brutal team up attacks:
Rich Craft.

Ayane and Kasumi
Gen Fu and Kasumi
Lei Fang and Helena
Lei Fang and Tina
Tina and Zack
Christie and Brad Wong
Christie and Bayman
Ayane and Ein
Tina and Bayman
Hayabusha and Gen Fu
Hyate and Hayabusha
Jann Lee and Hitomi
Jann Lee and Tina
Zack and Jann Lee
Bass and Zack

Hint: Unlocking costumes:
To unlock everyone's third, fourth or fifth costumes (if available), go into survival mode, choose your character and keep fighting until an "X" that is similar to the Xbox logo appears. Collect it and die (or keep fighting). If you quit, it will disappear and you will not get the costume.

Glitch: Hayabusa automatically stands:
As Hayabusa, do the move where you stand on your head. Then have the other player as Kasumi use her Up + A throw. She will jump on him, and he will automatically be standing again.

Glitch: Suicide drop:
While playing as Hayabusa on Lorelei, lure you opponent to where you can kick them off. Do the grab move, where you punch the opponent in the air, jump, then grab him. Hayabusa or Lorelei should punch the opponent then jump off the cliff with the enemy.

When playing a two player versus game, choose Tina as your character and any one else as player two. Select the mountain stage and have player two to walk up to the edge. When ready, have Tina perform her "Flying Buttocks" attack and quickly have player two counter. Tina should now fly butt-first into oblivion.
