FAQ Description ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After working on Hidden Moves FAQs for Tekken 4 and Tekken Tag Tournament, I decided to work on a Hidden Moves FAQ for Soul Calibur 2. This FAQ will not be as complete as my Tekken FAQs, because I have been playing Tekken for longer period of time. This FAQ only covers the moves that are hidden within the PS2 Soul Calibur 2 (U.S. Version). These moves should work on the Arcade (except Heihachi) and other PS2 Versions, but I only tested these moves on the PS2 U.S. Version. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3.

Pre-Match Taunts ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ------------------------------------------------------------------- Description ------------------------------------------------------------------- After playing the demo version of Soul Calibur 2, I realized that you can make your player say one of four possible taunts before you get to the actual fight. After I purchased, I decided to create a FAQ to put together all of the pre-match taunts for each selectable fighter. This is performed by pressing any one of the A, B, K, or G buttons (see legend for explanation). ------------------------------------------------------------------- Legend ------------------------------------------------------------------- -------- Buttons: -------- Notation Meaning -------- ------- A Press the Horizontal Attack Button B Press the Vertical Attack Button K Press the Kick Attack Button G Press the Guard Button ------ Other: ------ Notation Meaning -------- ------- N/A There are no taunts for this button. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Taunts ------------------------------------------------------------------- -------- Assassin -------- A: Haha (Laugh) B: (N/A) K: Heya G: (N/A) -------- Astaroth -------- A: Graaaaaaw!

About Tekkenomics ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Tekkenomics" is the name of the website created by Wild Man X, with help from Paulinstein and Drake the Demon. "Tekkenomics" is guaranteed to contain some material that has never been seen on any other Tekken website. The site will contain exclusive articles, original FAQ files, move lists, combos/juggles, combo movies, in-game matches, ending movies, and fan-based material. Be sure to chack out the site often for updates, and feel free to join the forum. I hope you enjoy the site. If you're having problems visiting the "Tekkenomics" website at http://tekkenomics.tk, then you can also visit it at the link below: https://phgraphics.redirectme.net/~waltonk/tekkenomics/index.html If you were wondering how we came up with the name "Tekkenomics": Back in my high school days in the year 2000, Paulinstein, me, and some other high school friends would get together to play Tekken 3. At the time, we were also taking Economics class. So, whenever we would get together to play, we would say that we were going to study some "Tekkenomics". So, basically "Tekken" + "Economics" = "Tekkenomics". There are a few references on the web about the name "Tekkenomics" that isn't related to us or our website. There are some members on the Tekken Zaibatsu forums that are known as Tekkenomics, Tekkenomics_101, and TekkenNomics Jr. that aren't related to us. On Tekken Zaibatsu, we go by the names Wild Man X and Paulinstein. The things that are related to us are at: GameFAQs, Neoseeker, IGN, 1UP.com, Gamerhelp, Gamespot, AIM, MSN Messenger, Hotmail, and Gmail. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 12. About The Author ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have been a fan of the Tekken series since 2000. A few of my friends got me into the series with Tekken 3. My first FAQ was "Hidden Moves" for Tekken 4. Writing this FAQ, I've learned some new things about Tekken along the way that I probably wouldn't have learned otherwise. My FAQs are a way for me to share what I have learned. When I bought Tekken Tag for the PS2, I decided to learn how to play with all of the fighters, and this has carried over to Tekken 4, Tekken 5, and Tekken: Dark Resurrection. So, you can rest assured that I do atleast know a little bit about what I'm talking about :) Lei Wulong is my main fighter, and has been since Tekken 3. If you ever play Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection in Southern California, I have a Lei IC Card named "Get Leid". I hope that you've enjoyed my FAQs! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 13.
