WALKTHROUGH - STAGE 1
STAGE 1-1 ~ The Beginning
When the opening cutscene ends, you will be forced
into a battle with two grunts. Now is the time to get
the feel of the controls. Tap the Square button for
an attack combo. Pause the game and look at your current
default technique settings under the "Techniques"
menu to get a good idea of how to do Gene's moves. You
can map any of those commands to an attack of your choice.
I would recommend leaving it the way it is for now.
Run up to the grunts and hit them with combos. If they
start to block then tap Left Analog Back + Square to
break their guard. Perform an uppercut attack by pressing
Left Analog Back + Triangle right after breaking their
guard to pop them up in the air then attack with a Laughing
Dragon Punch (Back + Triangle during a high knockup)
and possibly a Mid-Air Roundhouse Kick (Forward + Triangle
during a high knockup). If you don't hit them after
breaking a guard then charge Back + Triangle to send
them flying into the air. Juggling enemies with these
combos will be your best bet for defeating enemies in
the first few stages. This will take them out quickly
and help to boost your TP gauge. Don't use a roulette
attack just yet. Save it for now. When the enemies hit
the ground, rush over to them and tap the O button to
stomp on them while they're down. You can also tap Forward
+ Triangle to perform a Heel Drop on a grounded foe
- this can be charged and you can also follow it up
with a Launch Kick (Triangle after Heel Drop) to send
them flying into the air. If you stun one with an attack
you can Suplex or Pummel him with the O button while
next to him. A very useful move for any type of grunt
enemy is the Dashing Jump Kick (Triangle while dashing)
and the Jumping Overhead Kick (Square while dashing).
These will almost always launch a grunt away from you
and will be very useful for crowds. Double tap the Left
Analog forward twice to dash. There are some cardboard
boxes to the side of the building that you can throw
at them also. Breakable objects like these will sometimes
leave behind helpful items.
Once the first two grunts have been defeated a fatty
will pop through the door of the right building. You
might want to try a roulette attack here. Press the
R1 button to slow down time then quickly cycle through
the different attacks by tapping R1. Use a close Roulette
Attack such as the Ball Buster, La Bamba, Divine Smash,
or God Stomp. Only use these during tough fights since
you will use a Roulette Orb every time that a roulette
attack is used. The orbs are above the difficulty meter
skull icon. They can be replenished by finding cards
but the cards are randomly placed in breakable objects,
so you'll never know just when you might find one.
Walk over to TUTORIAL 1 for a message about dodging.
In God Hand, you will need to dodge an enemy's attack
by pressing the Right Analog stick. Press either Up
(Duck), Down (Back Flip), Right (Dodge Right), or Left
(Dodge Left) to dodge an incoming attack. It is vital
to learn how to use this early since it will play a
key role to your progression through later stages. Go
around the right side of the buildings off to the right
and beat up the lone enemy with the 2" x 4"
then grab it. There is also an Explosive Barrel around
the side of the building that can be picked up. Hurry
to the back building off to the left to find three normal
size enemies beating up on an innocent bystander. You'll
find TUTORIAL 2 along the way - this will explain the
roulette attacks (Roulette Wheel) to you. Tear through
the enemies with the 2" x 4" and juggle attacks.
Be sure to save your roulette attack if you still have
one. A few more grunts will bust through the door to
the side. Use a Barrel Roll Kick to knock away a whole
crowd of them at once. If you saved the innocent man,
he will run to one of the buildings where you just came
from. He'll give you some fruit to replenish your health.
Enter the building up ahead to find a few more grunts.
After you defeat the first enemy, he will fall and spawn
a purple demon. These demons are much harder and aggressive
than the normal enemies you have fought. Be sure to
use some roulette attacks to take him out quickly. A
Ball Buster works really well since you'll be able to
Pummel him with the O button while he is stunned. You
can counter his grab (he will teleport behind you and
grab) by pressing O at the right moment as the button
icon appears on the screen. Wait for him to teleport
toward you then dodge out of the way as he swipes at
you. If he stands far and starts to shoot fireball then
dodge to the right or left. Back flip away from him
when he parries after blocking or he will strike you
with his claw - you can also duck this and sweep (Right
Analog Up + Triangle) to knock him down. By now you
should have built up your God Hand power as well, so
press the R2 button for a short burst of speed, power,
and invincibility while you attack the demon.
Another method that works well for taking out demons
is to juggle them constantly with a Heel Drop followed
by a Launch Kick from off the ground. Use a Ball Buster
then hit them with a Charged Uppercut while they recover,
juggle them with a Laughing Dragon Punch and combos
but do not kick them away from you. As they hit the
ground, perform another charged Heel Drop followed by
a Launch Kick to send them back up into the air again.
You can also start this up with the La Bamba roulette
attack, but be ready to do the Heel Drop followed by
a Launch Kick immediately. The demon may escape from
this combination by rolling, but if you manage to trap
him, he will be taken down quickly.
TUTORIAL 3 will explain the God Hand power to you.
A fatty and a grunt will crash through the ceiling window
after you defeat all of the grunts near the other door
of the building. Exit the building to run into more
grunts as they open the gate outside.
Fight off the grunts and check through all the buildings
for any breakable objects before you enter through the
gate to the next area. Some more grunts are lurking
in the back if you backtrack. Walk through the open
gate to continue. TUTORIAL 4 will be off to the side
as you run down the small tunnel. When you reach the
end, you can run inside the stable on the right side
and jump up the ladder at the end to find some breakable
objects on the rooftop. Move to a ledge and press the
O button to jump down. One of the grunts up ahead has
a Steel Pipe that you can use. The lone grunt on the
far left side has a Hammer that you can use as well.
Near the gate in the back you will run across a fatty
beating on an innocent man. A few extra enemies will
join the fight once you walk up to him. Fight off the
grunts first since the fatty will fall to reveal another
purple demon after being defeated. Use roulette attacks
once again to quickly defeat the demon. Use Ball Busters
followed by Pummels if he is the only enemy. Visit the
innocent man in the house afterward and he will give
you some fruit. Run to the gate and enter the next area.
The Map Screens will allow you to save your game, enter
the shop, or enter the casino. There is also a practice
arena that you should take full advantage of to learn
your moves along with a fighting arena. The fighting
arena cannot be accessed until stage 1 is complete.
TUTORIAL 6, near the fighting arena will let you know
that you can use any technique for sale in the shop
while practicing and you will not take any damage while
practicing. You will have an infinite amount of roulette
orbs while inside as well. Everything will go back to
normal once you exit. Don't forget to equip techniques
if you buy an extra move or buy an extra attack slot.
The following items are available at the shop:
|Right Hook 1
|Elbow Spin 1
|Backfist Strike 1
|Charged Punch 2
STAGE 1-2 ~ My Right Arm The God Hand
Immediately following the cutscene you'll have to fight
the enemies that were torturing the innocent bystander.
Gene will still have his "Kick Me" sign on
his back from the cutscene during this entire battle.
It will only leave your back when you use the God Hand
or a roulette attack. There is actually a secret item
available to those that can make it through the entire
from here on without using a roulette attack or the
God Hand. See the Extras section for details. Run off
to the side and grab the explosive barrel to make this
fight a bit easier. Try to defeat the weaker grunts
then go for their leader. Dodge to the side when the
leader does his dash attack. Only use one Roulette move
if you have to use one. Walk around the right side of
the building almost directly across from the one Olivia
is in to find your first Little Devil. Destroy the wood
fence to get around to her. Each of these devils will
offer a challenge that will allow you to win gold. The
winning item is always gold for each of these.
Winning Condition: Annihilate all of the enemies
before time runs out.
Time Limit: 2 minutes
The first wave of enemies will be three grunts, the
second wave will be two grunts with a fatty, and the
final will be a warrior with a spiked club. Use normal
combos mixed with plenty of uppercuts and juggles to
take down the first two sets. You may actually want
to use a roulette move on the fatty if you have it to
spare. The warrior with the club will usually try to
swing twice from side to side then hit you overhead.
If you're close, then try to duck the first two swings
then dodge to the right or left as he swings overhead.
You can juggle him so you can take him down easily once
you understand his attacks. He will sometimes mix up
his attacks so be careful while dodging. If you knock
his club out of his hand be sure to grab it before he
does. Use the God Hand in the final fight if you have
it powered up.
Reward: Lv1 = 5000, Lv2 = 7500, Lv3 = 10000,
LvDie = 30,000
Access TUTORIAL 5 near the bridge to find out about
the Running Dash. Tap forward twice on the Left Analog
then hold forward to run across the bridge. On the other
side two fatties and a grunt will attack. Try to Jump
Kick the grunt with Triangle as you run across the bridge
to get the drop on them. Two more enemies will join
the battle once you defeat all but one of the first
wave. One of them may demonize on you. The demons will
mainly be random from now on. Walk toward the lift and
get inside when all the enemies have been defeated to
end this stage.
STAGE 1-3 ~ A Poison Chihuahua!?
Run up and jump kick one of the enemies in the background
then grab the 2" x 4" before one of the enemies
does and beat them both down with it. Inside of the
building a few more grunts will be waiting. One of the
enemies will turn into a demon eventually, so be ready
to unleash the God Hand at any time. When you run into
the space in between the buildings a cutscene will activate.
A poison Chihuahua will bite a guy and you will need
to chase down the small enemy with the serum. You are
timed in doing this so you must chase after him quickly
or the poisoned guy will die. Fight off the fatty and
grunt after the cutscene then some more enemies will
eventually race into the area through the gate in the
back. Defeat them - one of them may turn into a demon
- then rush through the gate and enter the first building
to the right. If none of them turn into a demon then
expect one later!
Fight off the grunt with the hammer inside the building
- he'll take a swing at you as you walk through the
door. Jump to the second floor near the ladder in the
back. The enemy with the serum will jump off the outside
portion of the second floor. Follow him back through
the gate. He will run around the side of the buildings
near the poisoned man. Chase after him and do battle
with the leaders around the side of the building. The
enemy with the serum will run inside of the first building.
Enter the building and defeat him then grab the serum.
It is possible to defeat the enemy with the serum without
a chase if you catch up with him. Either way, rush back
to the poisoned man and give him the serum (press O).
He will give you the DRAGON KICK Roulette attack! Make
sure you get this. Try the stage over again if you miss
it since it will really help out for the next stage.
If you need some food then save the innocent man in
the first building off to your left and he will give
you some food. Check the buildings around the area for
plenty of breakable objects and possible enemies. Rush
to the back of the area past the gate to find several
enemies inside of a hanging box. Fight them off along
with the fatty guarding the blue door in the back. One
of them may demonize on you, so be careful. Don't exit
through that blue door just yet though. Go around the
right side of all the buildings to find a Little Devil.
Winning Condition: Destroy the car before time
Time Limit: 1 minute
Tch, where's a good crowbar when you need one? Like
another familiar Capcom game, you must now destroy a
parked car. In order to destroy this car you will have
to hit the right side, left side, front side, and back
side until they are completely destroyed. In order to
do this run up to the car and jump kick it then unleash
a La Bamba roulette attack. La Bamba will pulverize
one side of the car very badly and damage the other
side a bit, so you will have an immediate head start
on destroying it. Hit the car with constant combos and
Barrel Roll Kicks. The Barrel Roll Kick will slow you
down but it will hit other side of the car while you
stand at your current side. Keep hammering away and
you'll eventually get it. The fist icon will not show
when a side is complete destroyed. Unleash Gene's God
Hand if you have your TP gauge filled up. Show the Little
Devil that this will not be your Final Fight...err,
Little Devil Challenge.
Reward (all levels): 5,000
Enter the blue door afterward to exit the stage.
STAGE 1-4 ~ Secret Warehouse Carnival
This stage is nothing but one big battle. Don't bother
any of the crates at the moment and only grab a special
item if you need it! The first two waves of enemies
will be four grunts then the second wave will be two
fatties. Stand below one of the sides as the fatties
drop down and start to combo one. Break his guard as
soon as he starts to block and hit until you stun him.
Perform a Stinger when the action icon appears as the
current fatty gets stunned and you will defeat that
one quickly. Defeat the other one the same way then
the couple up above will jump down and a boss fight
I sure hope you got that Dragon Kick from the last
stage because if you did then you can take over half
of their life with one Dragon Kick. Make sure that both
of them are in front of you as you unleash the move
- wait for them to attempt a double team. This is your
key to an easy victory.
Concentrate on getting them both in front of you as
you attack so the other will not have the advantage
of attacking. Break their guard as soon as you see one
of them block an attack. Make sure to keep your eye
on the one that you are not attacking and dodge to the
side appropriately if he starts to attack. Attack until
you stun one of them then wait until the other comes
near the stunned boss and unleash the pummel special
attack on both of them - the attack will not always
hit both though. Do a backflip when they try to jump
in the air and dive kick you from a distance or when
they try attack you any other way. When they go to perform
one of their double attacks - they will always run away
from you to do this - run toward them and perform a
Barrel Roll Kick on both of them as they get in position.
Don't try for charge attacks or juggles during this
battle or the other boss will hit you. The main objective
here is to attack until you stun one of them then follow
up with a special attack as the icon appears or hit
them with a Barrel Roll Kick as they approach you. Do
NOT prepare a Barrel Roll Kick from up close or they
will easily knock you out of it. Like any other battle,
unleash the God Hand to help you out for a few seconds.
Run and grab some items from the crates to the side
or throw some of the crates at the bosses to help you
out as well.
1) Q is immune to the Ball Buster roulette attack.
2) A will leave you with some bananas after you defeat
Exit the area through the door in the back. On the
outside destroy the crates and barrels - look out for
the enemy with the bomb in one of the barrels - and
run up the stairs. Open the door at the top to end the
STAGE 1-5 ~ Sneak Into Elvis's Crib!
Defeat the grunts near the statue. One of them has
a hammer. Be sure to knock the book out of the statues
hands and examine it for 1,000 gold. Enter the room
off to the side and defeat the leader for ROSARY 1.
Exit the room and move down the hall to your left. A
leader and a fatty will be waiting at the end of the
hall next to the staircase. Stay away from the grunts
at the top of the stairs and you won't have to fight
them along with the other two enemies. Enter the door
across from the stairs.
In this room you will be confronted by four waves of
enemies. Be sure to unleash the God Hand when the going
gets tough. The first two waves will consist of five
grunts total. The third wave will be a new enemy - the
bombers. These enemies are very weak, but they will
throw bombs around the room the whole time. You can
kick back the bombs by getting near one and waiting
for the kick icon. Be on the lookout for bombers that
will run toward you with a lit bomb - attack them to
knock the bomb out of their hands. You can also counter
a bomber much like a demon if he rushes behind you.
The final wave of enemies will be two leaders. ROSARY
2 will appear near the door once you defeat the final
leader. Some of these enemies may turn into demons so
have some Roulette Attacks ready. Break the glass on
the displays and take both the bracelet and necklace,
which are worth 200 Gold each and finally the mask,
which is worth 1,000 Gold. Hey, wait, that hand display
is flipping us off! Leave the room when you're ready.
Run up the stairs and defeat the grunts along the way.
Go through the green curtains (yes, those are curtains)
and run down the hallway ahead. Two leaders will be
guarding the door at the end. Enter the small door to
the right as you walk down the hall. You'll find a fatty
along with two girls kneeling down next to him. The
girls will rise up as you move around the side of the
bed. Defeat the fatty as the girls leave to make him
cough up ROSARY 3. Rush through the hall and jump to
the bottom of the stairs to pick your rewards from the
girls that the fatty was having his way with. Go all
the way back to the guarded door and defeat the leaders.
In order to break the shield around the door you will
have to use all three rosaries on it.
STAGE 1-6 ~ Who's The Boss? Elvis!
As long as you are familiar with dodging this boss
fight will not be all that bad. He will most likely
start out with some type of ram attack so dodge to the
right or left as he runs toward you. Always prepare
to dodge to the side whenever you see him charging an
attack. He will rush toward you with a ram after his
arm glows and he will rush toward you with a torpedo
when he gets in a crane-type stance. He will sometimes
rush you with a slower ram - there is no warning for
this but it's not too fast so just step to the side
as he dashes. Dodge his fireball move by moving to the
sides as he throws the fireball - this move is very
rare. When he gets next to you hit him with your combo
attacks and break his guard whenever he lifts up his
arm to block. Continue to punch away until you see the
"Pummel" action appear then go for a Pummel.
It's going to take quite a few pummels and attack combos
to finish him off. If he ever jumps while you are attacking
then be sure to back flip IMMEDIATELY to avoid taking
damage from his ground pound. He will sometimes breathe
smoke in your face, but this won't damage you any, however,
you should back flip since you won't be able to see
him attacking. Whenever he steps toward you with his
punching combo, duck and sweep him. As long as you dodge
his moves appropriately and stay aggressive through
the use of combos and guard breaks he will wear down
eventually. The Dragon Kick Roulette attack will take
away 25% of his life if you hit him with it. The main
key to beating him is to stay aggressive and do not
let up on your attacks. Unleash the God Hand whenever
possible. Make sure to run behind his desk and open
the treasure chest for the YES MAN KABLAAM technique.
Make sure to get the technique during the battle since
a cutscene will play afterward to end the stage. His
desk and the vases can be destroyed for some possible
