EX: (air) = Must do the move while jumping (run) = Must do the move while running Most of these are self-explanatory All moves listed assume the default button configuration: S = weak slash, T = strong slash, X = weak kick, O = strong kick, L1 = roll toward screen, L2 = roll away from screen You can, of course, reconfigure the buttons to whichever format you like. Personally, I set all L & R buttons to rotate moves since I hate the automatic special move settings. ============ COMMON MOVES ============ The following moves are common to all characters in the game, although the full effect of each move varies with the character. Walk forward: f Walk backward: b Dash forward: f, f Dash backward: b, b Run forward: f, (hold f) Jump up: u Jump backward: ub Jump forward: uf Block high attacks: hold b (when being attacked) Block low attacks: hold db (when being attacked) Roll towards screen: L1 or d, d Roll away from screen: L2 or d, d (The "d, d" motion does not allow you to choose which direction you roll) Roll towards opponent: f + L1 or f + L2 or f, df, f, df (L1 rolls toward screen, L2 rolls away. This is really difficult to do without the L or R buttons set to rotate) Sidestep: L1 or L2 while running (L1 rolls toward screen, L2 rolls away. It is impossible to do this without the L or R buttons set to rotate) Throw opponent: T + O (close to opponent) Push opponent behind you: b + T + O (close to opponent) Quick recovery: S or T or X or O (As your character hits the ground while falling back from an attack. This can only be done after being hit by certain moves) Bounce off of wall: S or X or O (As your character hits the wall while falling back from an attack) Attack off wall: T (As your character hits the wall while falling back from an attack) Mid-air recovery: O (Just after the peak of your character's arc while falling back from an attack) The following are the different ways you can move while standing up after being knocked down Quick stand: S or T or X or O Roll forward: f Roll backward: b Roll to the side: L1 or L2 or d, d (L1 rolls toward screen, L2 rolls away) Jump: u The following are the basic attack moves. They have different effects depending on what position your character is in. Quick weak attack (usually with weapon): S Slow strong attack (usually with weapon): T Quick weak attack (usually with feet): X Slow strong attack (usually with feet): O Possible positions: Standing and facing opponent Standing with back to opponent Crouching and facing opponent Crouching with back to opponent Jumping Running A brief note on guns: Five characters in the game are equipped with guns or other projectile weapons with limited ammunition. Some have the ability to replenish their ammo supply, and some don't. For those that have these kind of weapons, the current ammo supply is displayed just above the character's name during the match. ============= SPECIAL MOVES ============= Any moves that do not fall under any other category can be found here. Each character has his own unique set of special moves, although many are common between a few different characters. ======== COUNTERS ======== Counters are basically uninteruptable attacks. A character doing a counter will take damage if hit, but will not stop doing the move until he/she is finished. This is useful for pushing back over-aggressive opponents. Every character has at least one counter move and some have two. They are all done with either "b + T" or "b + O". ====== TAUNTS ====== Taunts are moves that tease the opponent. The most common effect of a taunt is that the opponent's Overdrive bar (see Overdrive moves) is raised. However, some characters' taunts have other effects. In the "Individual Character Moves" section, special effects of specific taunts are described in the "move description" field. An "NS" in this field means "Nothing Special", or that particular taunt has only the common effect of raising the opponent's OD bar. To perform a taunt with any character, press "select". ======= STRINGS ======= A string is a series of attacks that flow together in rapid succession. Strings should not be confused with combos. A combo is a series of attacks that are impossible to block if the first move connects properly. Although most strings in Toshinden 3 result in combos, this is not necessarily always the case, as a few strings have a long enough break between moves for the opponent to recover and block the rest of the string. To perform a string, simply tap out the attack buttons in the proper order as quick as possible. Unlike games like Tekken, the timing of the button presses in strings does not have to be very precise. As long as you hit the correct buttons in the correct order (and are not too slow) the string should work. =========== SUPER MOVES =========== Super moves, are moves that are extremely flashy and powerful. Usually, the screen darkens when a character performs a super move. There are four types of super moves: Overdrives, Life Bombs, Desperation moves, and Secret moves. Overdrives: Just above each character's life bar is a smaller bar. This is the Overdrive bar. This bar starts out empty and gradually fills up as you perform moves, receive blows, block attacks, etc. When the Overdrive bar fills completely, it will start flashing and slowly drain back down to empty. While your OD bar is flashing you may perform your character's Overdrive move. All characters may do their OD move simply by pressing "S + T" or "X + O". Doing your OD move automatically reduces your OD bar to empty. Life Bombs: Life Bombs are super moves that usually involve some manipulation of the character's ki, such as an aura surrounding the character that damages the opponent if touched. Life Bombs can be done any time during a match, but can only be done a certain number of times (twice in a one round match, four times in a two out of three match, five times in a three out of five match). Just above your character's OD meter there should be a number of small blue spheres. This tells you how many Life Bombs you have left to use in the match. Every time you use one, one of the blue spheres disappears. The exception to this rule is Adam, whose mid-air Life Bomb does not use up one from the supply. I believe this is a glitch in the game programming. Life Bombs may be done either on the ground, or in the air with different effects. In either case, Life Bombs are activated by all characters simply by pressing "S + X". Desperation Moves: Desperation moves are basically last resort moves used to make a comeback when losing a round. In order to do a Desperation move, your character's entire life bar must be flashing. This first happens when your life drops below one fourth. After you perform a Desperation move (whether it connects or not) the empty portion of your life bar will stop flashing (Only the red filled bit at the end will continue to flash). The life bar will remain like this until your character takes damage again, at which point the entire bar will flash and you will be able to perform the Desperation move again. All characters (except Kayin) may perform their Desperation move with "f, b, f, T". Kayin's Desperation move is "f, b, f, O". Secret Moves: Secret moves are super moves that may be performed any time during a match, and may be performed as many times in a match as you like. The drawback to Secret moves is that they require a fairly elaborate and often difficult controller motion to perform. The specific motion for the Secret move varies with different characters. I believe all the characters have at least one Secret move (although I do not yet have them all), and some (such as Shou) may have more than one. ****************************************************************************** ************************* Individual Character Moves ************************* ****************************************************************************** In the following section, each move is described in three fields. The first gives the controller motion required to perform the move. The second is the name of the move (i.e. what the character yells, if anything, when performing the move). In the cases where the character does not say anything intelligible, this field is filled with "N/A". Since most of the speaking in this game is in Japanese, I do not know exactly what each character is saying. Wherever possible, I include the correct name for the move, but just for fun, in the cases where I do not know the correct Japanese for what's said, I include a phrase in parentheses in place of the correct word/phrase. This is what it sounds like to me. Some of these are rather humorous. In cases where I don't know the name of the move, and I can't think of anything to put in its place, this field is filled with "???". The third field gives a brief description of the move. ==== Abel ==== Special Moves: d, df, f + slash N/A - Forward projectile f, d, df + slash (Don't go there) - Charge attack d, df, f, d, df, f + T N/A - Charge up, forward projectile d, db, b + kick ???

If you know the correct way to do any of these, please let me know. Atahua: Special throw - He grabs you, and leaps into the air, doing his giant swing throw in mid-air. You can do this move by setting one of the L or R buttons to special # 4. Cuiling: Secret move - She waves her claws, does the low power kick, a few claw slashes, and ends with the mid-air mystic sphere. You can do this move by using the instant secret move trick described below. Ellis: Ribbon toss - She tosses the bow on her back a short distance, and it comes back to her. This was in the first game, but it doesn't seem to work the same way in this one. You can do this move by using the instant secret move trick described below. Sofia/Zola: Diagonal Aurora Revolution - She starts on the ground, and does the Aurora Revolution, only it goes at an up-forward angle all the way up to the ceiling. I've only seen the computer do this move, and I can't remember if I saw it done by Sofia, Zola, or both. ****************************************************************************** *********************************** Codes ************************************ ****************************************************************************** Random select: Hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 at the character select screen to make the selection box jump randomly around all the characters. Press S or T or X or O while box is moving to select a character at random. No life bars: Pause the game during a match. Press S + T + X + O + select. This will make the options menu disappear. Press it again, and the life bars, OD bars, timer, etc. will disappear. Now unpause and play without knowing how much life you have left or how full your OD bar is. Pause the game and press all five buttons one more time to return to normal. Play as sub-bosses: Beat the game with each basic character at level 3 or higher to unlock his/her sub-boss. (You may be able to do it at a lower level, as I never tried playing below level 3) Play as Shou: After unlocking all the sub-bosses, beat the game with Vermilion on level 3 or higher. (Again, you may be able to do this at a lower level. You also may be able to do it with another sub- boss character. I've only tried it with Vermilion) Play as Abel: Beat the game with Shou at level 7 Play as Veil: Beat the game with Abel at level 7 Play as Naru: Beat the game with Veil at level 7 Alternate character costumes: Beat the game with Naru at level 7. Select your character with S or X to get the alternate costume. For some characters this is just a couple new colors for their old costume, but for many, its an entirely new outfit. Instant Secret moves: After beating the game with Naru, set two or more of the L and R buttons to special moves. Press all special move buttons at once to perform some characters' secret moves. Unfortunately, this does not work for all characters. Camera angle control: I'm assuming this is in there, but I haven't been able to get it to work. It doesn't seem to work the same way as in the previous games. If anyone figures it out, let me know. ****************************************************************************** ********************************** Credits *********************************** ****************************************************************************** -=The Jesster=- (author)....................................jesster@execpc.com Vegita1701 (instant secret move trick)......................vegita1701@aol.com I'd also like to add special thanks to: Tomwoof............................................tomwoof@AnimatedObjects.com whose Toshinden 2 faq I used while playing that game.
