Alternate snow stage appearance:

When at the last stage against Omega and he stops shooting at you, get close to
him and continuously punch him. Do not worry if he blocks -- eventually he will
stop and you will knock him out.
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.
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).
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
