-- if you look at the bottom left, you will notice that the score
Hint: More survival mode items:

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 :
Successfully complete the game in story mode to unlock
that fighter's entry in theater mode.
Hint: Ending credits:

An option to toggle the ending credits will be unlocked on the
game settings screen.
Hint: Chest jiggle:
Select multi-player mode and choose tag battle. Select
any two characters for the player one then choose any character
and Leifang for the player two. Pick any stage to fight in. 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
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
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:
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
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.
