This is a compilation of the old FAQ 1.0, the moves in Gamest, my own
experience and the moves e-mailed to me.

I actually finished the game with all characters, witch doesn't mean
that I get all the aspects of the game... Still hanging on guard
reversals. Somebody found out combos to add?

I am waiting for any addition, correction or suggestion. E-mail me or
post to this newsgroup.

Want to do list:

- color schemes: additions welcome, cause 8*14 characters aren't cheap
  (yes, the game is 1 CHF to play (.75$))
- Japanese names of the moves and their translations
- endings (quotes + descriptions) Sasquatch and more exact versions of
  the ones given there. Look at Victors for a good example.
- any proposals for better descriptions or move names, cause I'm real
  lame finding them
- victory quotes: Bishamon, Pyron, Sasquatch
- combos
- tips for guard reversals

# General playing

Kick buttons  : Short   Forward  Roundhouse
                 o         o        o
                 o         o        o
Punch Buttons : Jab     Strong   Fierce

All move notation (in keeping with tradition) Will be for characters
facing to The right.

Characters now have very special rushes forward -o -o or backward. Try
out the special use of each

"punch+kick" means to push relative punch and kick buttons together such
 as jab+short, strong+forward, or fierce+roundhouse
"all punch" means to push 2 punch buttons together
"all kick" means to push 2 kick buttons together
"all button" means to push four buttons in unison

It's actually easier if you push 3 buttons, because you're sure the
games registers at least two of them...

A dot .o- means charging a little while

ES stands for ESpecial-A normal move used with 2 buttons. Uses 1 level
EX stands for Extra Special-A unique move which uses 1 energy level
GR stands for Guard reversal move

# The fighters

The coolest is the category for the best moves, style, etc...
The best is the best computer-killer
The brain is the best computer AI


The coolest             The best                 The brain

Victor                  Rikuo                    Rikuo

# Color schemes

All warriors can be chosen in eight different colors. Find out your
favorite. Use roundhouse to get the classic color of the first game,
start to get the alternate color of the first game. There is also a
special dark color to get. Hold down jab+forward for this one.

Anakaris     jab+forward: White bandages, black and yellow mask
Bishamon                : Blue skin and armor
Demitri      roundhouse : Blue clothes and aura
Donovan      jab        : Gold and brown robes
Huitzil      roundhouse : Golden Huitzil
Lord Raptor  forward    : Gray skin and black pants
Pyron                   : Full blue flame
Rikuo        fierce     : Golden and purple
Talbain      start      : Gray hair and red pants

Note that all of the dark colors look plain cool to me

# Speed change

You can use normal or turbo speed. In a two player game, the winner
chooses the speed

# Auto-block mode

In this mode, as long as you aren't pressing a button to attack, the
computer guards for you. You can walk around not being hit. The computer
will guard automatically 10 times per match-up. Being in auto-block mode
gets you auto-chain-combos. Push three attack buttons (kick or punches),
and the computer chains jab-strong-fierce or short-forward-roundhouse
into a combo. You can't make manual chain combos in this mode...

#Chain combos

In the Darkstalkers Series, there is a combo system that allows you to chain a
series of normal attacks together.  It involves you cancelling the animation
of a normal move into another normal so that the hits come out in rapid
succession.  To do a chain combo, you must hit the next attack at the precise
moment your first attack makes contact.  The order you can chain moves
together goes in the following:


Thus, conceivably, you could do a 6-hit combo with all six buttons in sequence
if your moves could reach your target.  However, you can skip any of the
attacks in the sequence; i.e. you don't have to follow up each attack with the
next button in the sequence.  For example, you can do a Jab, Strong, Forward,
Roundhouse chain combo.  Or, you can do a Short, Fierce Chain Combo. However,
you cannot ever go backwards in the sequence.  And while you are chain
comboing, you can do any kind of move: standing, crouching, or directional
moves, moves that require you to hold a particular direction on the
controller... an example is Donovan's standing Roundhouse: you can use either
the regular Kick or the Hopping Kick.  You must also make contact with the
target in order to do a chain combo whether they get hit or they block. You
cannot miss the target and still cancel your move's animation.  Also, for
multi-hit moves (like Rikuo's standing Strong or Morrigan's crouching Jab),
you can cancel the latter hits.  You are not forced to cancel the first hit.
Thus, you could let the move hit more than once and on ANY of the latter hits,
you can press a later button in the sequence and cancel the move.  Also, once
you begin a chain combo, you can no longer cancel a move into a special move.
An example: With Felicia, you can do a crouching Forward and cancel that with
the Rolling Buckler special move.  However, if you do a Jab, Short, Forward
chain combo, you can no longer cancel the forward kick with the special

# Quarter and half circles

How many times did you wnat to make a half circle motion and got a quarter
circle instead? Theese times are now over, thanks to a new move recognition
by the game! Let's take an example...
You took Rikuo, finished charging up your special meter, and want to nail
the opponent with a magificient Sea-Rage EX

o - / | \ - o + All Punches
   o  o  o

The problem is that, Mr.Murphy aiding, you get a Sonic Wave ES

| \ - o + All Punches
o  o

Rage! But there is a sure-shot method to make the move you want everytime.
New in DarkStalker's Revenge is the modified half-circle motion:

o - / | \ + All Punches
   o  o  o

The fact that you stop the movement in the diagonal ensures that the game
doesn't register a quarter cicle motion instead. There no single standart
half-circle motion left in the game.

# Move names

All the move names here are taken from different sources. Mainly from the
Darkstalkers FAQ. But every new move and throw that isn't described there
is obtained from my own imagination or from the move lists of Mr.Wong and
Mr.Griffith. Some of the names may have originally come from Gamest, but
I'm not sure if they were in english first... Given the choice, I chose
the coolest name or the only one that came to mind. Please e-mail me the
genuine names if you want them to appear...

# Special meter

As you perform hits and moves or block a hit, this bar fills itself up.
Once it is filled, it begins to fill again. There is a counter on how
many times it has been filled.

- blue is for one level
- green is for two
- orange is for three
- and so on

Most special moves or throws can be powered-up to ES-versions. This uses
one level. The EX-moves require one level also. It appears than having
more that one level loaded can be handy as you can perform multiple
EX-ES-moves consecutively. Read the descriptions for more infos

# Pursuit

Once an opponent has been knocked down by your character, pressing or
holding up + kick will cause your character to follow up and land on the
downed character for an extra hit. It seems that the Short kick hits more
often that the Roundhouse. If done with 2 buttons, you get a ES pursuit
that does more damage.

Best pursuit : Bishamon
Best ES pursuit : Demitri

# Throw softening

If your character gets thrown by the opponent, hitting strong or fierce in the
first frames of animation of the throw can have your character land on his/her
feet and be in a much bettter state to retaliate.  You can also throw soften
hold moves such as Raptor's fierce button hold (Raptor's Bone Thrust).  If you
hit the fierce or strong button at the beginning frames of the hold, you can
flip out right after the first hit of the hold and avoid taking more damage.
You cannot soft land after throws requiring a joystick movement.

# Throws

Each character has a throw o- or -o + kick or punch (exept Anakaris).
This one can be used in air or on the ground. Each character has special
throws requiring a joystick motion and most of them have charged up ES

Best throw : Raptor's Bone Thrust
Best move throw : Tie : Rikuo's Crystal Lancer and Hsien-Ko's Houtengeki
Best ES throw : Raptor's Skull Banish
Best EX throw : Victor's Great Geldenheim

# Safety roll

After being knocked down, you can press toward or backward to move while
getting up, so you can elude your opponent. You are invincible to all
normal attacks while performing the moving get-up. Also, keep hitting the
buttons to recover more quickly and elude the pursuits on your still
knocked down character. I try to throw my foe while getting up rather
than try to flee...

# Guard reversals

In Darkstalkers, there is a system of counter attacks called Guard Reversals.
A Guard Reversal is the ability of each character to cancel his/her own block
into a particular special move, depending on who the character is.  To perform
a Guard Reversal, you must FINISH the code for your particular Guard Reversal
at almost precisely the same moment you block the move you are attemting to
Guard Reversal.  It is very difficult to perform a Guard Reversal at any given
moment because it takes a great amount of timing. However, performing a Guard
Reversal against any multi-hitting move is relatively easy (examples are
Morrigan's Valkyrie Turn, Rikuo's dashing Fierce, Felicia's Delta Kick, or any
chain combos you block).  After you block the first hit, you can just
repeatedly do your Guard Reversal code motion and there is a good chance it
will come out.

Note: Anakaris has no Guard Reversal.

Best guard reversal : Huitzil
Best ES guard reversal : Bishamon

# Button specials

What I call button specials are EX moves that require you to press four
buttons and one direction. To do them correctly, you don't want to wait for
the animation's of the punches/kicks to finish before pressing the next button
in the sequence. The key is speed. If you perform the code correctly, any move
you were currently doing will be instantly cancelled and your EX will begin.
It doesn't matter which move you are doing as long as it is a normal move (not
a special move, not an ES, and not an EX). Try Morrigan's Astral Vision
it's the first I ever did.

Best button special : Anakaris' Pharaoh Magic

# Notation

In the following move descriptions, 'you' will mean your character and
'It' the opponent. It is always assumed that you play the character
facing right. If you are facing left, reverse the motions for left and

# Methods to win

When a round is finished, the winners bubble fill with one of these

T - Time - Won by having more energy than your opponent when time runs
V - Victory - Won by a normal kick or punch
S - Special - Won by finishing the opponent off with a special move,
    fireball or special grab
ES - ESpecial - Won by finishing off the opponent with an augmented
     special move
EX - Extra Special - Won by finishing off the opponent with an Extra-
     Special move

D - Double K.O. - A round ends in wich both opponents defeat each other
at the axact same time (trading hits that completely drain the energy of
both characters. This can only happen where both players are given "D" in
both of their first bubbles and only 1 round remains. I a double K.O.
occurs on the second round, the winner of the first round wins the match.
If a double K.O occurs on the third round, the computer somehow figures
out a winner, but I'm still not sure how... Still trying to figure that

There are four quotes for winning with every character:

One for an excellent victory:

Huitzil-"Target neutralized. Threat evaluation: Wimp."
Raptor-"Bah! I have no time to waste on such inferior opponents!"
Demitri-"Your pathetic attemps to defeat me where truly laughable!"

One normal

Pyron-"I have crushed stars! What chance do you have against me?"
Bishamon-"There is no dishonor in falling before me, it's only natural."
Morrigan-"My victories, like my beauty, are eternal!"

One for a victory where you where nearly defeated:

Huitzil-"Target neutralized. Threat evaluation: Severe danger. Recommend
          unit upgrade."
Anakaris-"You could challenge Ra, but I Pharaoh Anakaris am the greatest
          warrior of all time!"
Talbain-"You skill is great, but mine is supreme!"

One for a victory agains a copy of your character:

Huitzil-"Rogue unit deactivated. Commencing production of new unit."
Felicia-"A cheap copy, and I do mean cheap, is no match for me!"
Donovan-"Get thee away from me phantom! There can only be one!"

The only round that affects which quote comes out is the final one

There are also different winning poses/animations that each character has
after they win a round.  Every character has at least one.  There are special
poses for special situations, such as getting a perfect (Donovan), beating the
computer Pyron (Raptor and Bishamon), defeating the computer Pyron the second
time on Round 2 with an EX Special (Anakaris), and holding all three kicks or
punches before the pose comes out (Morrigan).  There may be more.  If anybody
knows more...

Also, everyone has animations for the beginning of a match and most characters
have more than one: one for normal battles and another for when the computer
controlled player appears on their own stage.  Example: Felicia's normal match
entry animation is her as a cat which gets shot by lighting.  The cat grows
into Felicia who reels with the shock and then gets ready for the fight.  On
her own stage, however, Felicia appears as a cat walking on the wall for a
brief second and then suddenly rolls toward the fighting area towards you and
gets ready for the fight.
There is also one special entry animation in which Raptor fights Hsien-Ko.
Check this one out for a total laugh!

# Extra Specials

It appears that not every character has 3 special attacks. These are all
I actually know of.
Second, it appears that there are multiple possibilities to do some
moves. If you got a combination that works, please contact me.

Donovan has two      DEITY STOMP  DEMON AIRLINES
Felicia has two      ROLLING FLASH  FELINE TEAM
Pyron has one        COSMO DISRUPTION
Sasquatch has two    ICE BEACON  THIN ICE
Talbain has two      SHADOW HOWL  DRAGON CANNON

Rikuo's fourth EX may seem like a joke... Uneffective, ugly, and poor
damage... The reason for this is that it could in fact be a joke!
In the original Darkstalkers in Japan, Rikuo's Crouching Fierce, which
has the exact same animation of Rikuo's 4th EX, had to be blocked high
but many people complained that it was a cheesy move. So in the American
release of DS, they took it out and let you block the move if you were
crouching. When DS Revenge came out, the programmers decided to stick the
move BACK in the game, but only as an EX and only for the original two
colors (Roundhouse and Start). I guess it was a joke or something but it
is useful. It might be a waste of a full meter, though.

if you find any incoherance please tell me



-Type    : Mummy
-Mini    : Square Hieroglyphic slab.

"You could challenge Ra, but I Pharaoh Anakaris am the greatest warrior
 of all time!"
"No jackal spawn trickster will ever be able to defeat me!"


You teleport over the opponent and do a Pyramid Crush
ES-You help the crush by summoning a sarcophagus for extra weight

Tapping up with joystick allows you to float in the air. Hitting down/
down toward & roundhouse will have you do the Pyramid Crush move.

Anakaris hasn't got a guard reversal move

o- o- at edge of screen                              Pharaoh port

Disappear on one side of the screen to reappear on the other. You have
to be at the very edge of the screen to do this

| \  - o +punch (on ground)                          Mummy Wrapper
o  o

{jab= close, strong= medium ,fierce= far}

You make your hands appear where chosen and grab your opponent. You then
slam your opponent to the ground
ES-Your hands travel the screen, you bring your opponent into your
sarcophagus for increased damage. You cannot crouch under this move

jump | \ - o +punch                                  Royal Judgment
     o  o                                            Ouke no sabaki

You turn the opponent into a small miniaturized version of himself that
can't attack but can be attacked. The time it lasts depends on the button
used, roundhouse being the longest. Could be canceled as a throw (fierce
or roundhouse while being transformed)
ES-More reach

punch+kick                                           Coffin Drop
                                                     Hitsugi no mai

{ jab= close, strong= medium ,fierce= far, move left or right to direct }

Makes a coffin fall down on the chosen location. Holding left or right
doing this slightly shifts the drop in that direction, giving 9 locations
to drop the coffin
ES-Makes coffins fall down to every possible location, beginning far
across the screen

o - / | +kick                                        Echo back Swallow
   o  o                                              Kotodamagaeshi

You swallow a projectile being thrown at you

You spit it back. You can do this as many times as you wish after
swallowing just one projectile.
ES-Spit out ES-version of the projectile

o - - o +punch                                       Cobra Blow

Your arms shape into cobras and stretch across the screen
ES-More hits and reach


forward jab | short strong                           PHARAOH MAGIC.

# Endings

After finishing off Pyron, you will be treated to a cinematic ending
unique to the character you were using. Note these are the same that the
ones in the first episode, but with a Picture at the end. Disappointing.

ANAKARIS: (please correct)

  A battle between Egyptians is being waged in front of a pyramid.  The
scene switches to the inside of the pyramid were three figures are
discussing the battle.  One mentions that several divisions have been
destroyed and that the battle is lost.  A glowing light appears in the
center of the screen, followed by a flash of light.  When the light
subsides, Anakaris is standing before them in the flesh.  One of the
Egyptians says "My Lord, you have returned."  Anakaris mentions a
promise to protect them for all of time, and shows them the power he has
gained on his journey -- he hold his hands above him and a white light
is emitted from his hands into the air in a beam.  The scene switches
outside were the battle is being still being fought, and the white beam
erupts from the pyramid, and a white flash engulfs the whole screen.
When the light fades, the enemy have disappeared.  The Egyptians
rejoice, and the scene changes to a view of Anakaris standing before all
his followers in a courtyard.
The followers are chanting "All Hail Anakaris the Defender!"

BISHAMON: (please correct)

As soon as you defeat Pyron, Bishamon floats into the air.  His armor
flashes away showing a human Bishamon in a plain black robe(kimono). He
falls to his knees, with his face in his hands.  Screen fades to black,
then shows a closer picture of him.
    Bishamon says something like:  How long must I endure it?  How long
                  must I live with the cursed sword and armor?
A women appears behind Bishamon and says:  Bishamon, my beloved.
    Bishamon turns his head and says:  Orin! My love.  I understand now
                  that my oath to protect my master and property was not
                  enough. I must seek out and destroy evil wherever it
It starts to snow.
    Orin: Yes, but you will never again be alone.
Fade to a picture of a trail leading up to the mountains.  Its still
snowing. Bishamon (without armor) appears, wearing one of those circular
traveling hats. He walks up the trail.  The woman appears, and follows
him up the trail.

DEMITRI: (please correct)

    Demitri: You are a worthy opponent Pyron, but you are not strong
             enough to rule. I am the true master of the night!
Fade to a ballroom, with people Dancing.
    Person:  Where is lord Maximoff? I haven't seen him in a while.
    Person2: He was here a moment ago.  He must have stepped out.
Fade to a martini glass held up to a red moon.
    Demitri: A toast to my new rule!
Picture of Demitri alone in a dark room, moon in the window behind him.
    Demitry: A toast to my new rule! The moon shall be my scepter and the
             stars be but jewels on my crown!
             With the forces of the night at my command, no one will be
             able to stop me!  Even the day dwellers will soon bear
             their throats to me!
Room brightens, revealing two women clinging to Demitri.

DONOVAN: (please correct)

He stands there, hands stained by blood. He cries out something about how he
has been stained too much by the blood of the Darkstalkers and thus is
becoming a Darkstalker himself. However, he has succeeded in defeating the
Darkstalkers and as a result, Anita (the little girl following him) is finally
allowed to feel and express emotions again...
10 (?) years later, a grown Anita is seen carrying books and hair, in
pigtails, flowing in the wind. She wonders what ever happened to Donovan...
switch scenes to a Donovan sitting on a throne in a dark room from an overhead
view. There are dead bodies lying around the room and Donovan wonders if the
curse will ever end...


We see a hotel named "Felicia paradise"
Felicia surrounded by reporters
    Reporters: Who are you?  Where did you come from?
    Stranger: I don't care who you are or what you are, sign up with me
              and I'll make you rich and famous beyond your dreams!
    Felicia: Sure, where do I sign?  But I warn you now though, I have
             big dreams!
Felicia taking a bubble bath
    Narrator: Felicia, known as one of the Dark Stalkers made a series
              of films detailing her adventures within them.
    Felicia: Hope I can have Blanka as my leading man!

HSIEN-KO: (please correct)

Hsien-Ko and sister stand and tell their mother that they have acheived their
goal in defeating the Darkstalkers. Now that their task is finished, their
life force is ending and they will soon die. However, the spirit of the mother
tells them that they will NOT end their lifes but instead begin their lives
anew and gives them the gift of life with her protection...
Switch scenes to a hopital scene where a mother lies in a bed with two crying
babies... Congratulations!  Twin sisters!

HUITZIL: (please correct)

Pyron, very upset, wonders how a mere robot could have defeated him... and
says that he is not finished yet and disappears. Huitzil says that he no
longer detects life in the vincinity and concludes that his job is over and
returns to his his home in Tenochtitlan. He enters a pyramid where, inside,
there are many, many more Huitzils! Huitzil enters a dormant mode having
accomplished its goal...

JON TALBAIN: (please correct)

Picture of JT cheering, werewolf form.
    Talbain: I've done it! The others have been destroyed

             be rid of this curse!
Picture of him, human, standing on a rock:
    Talbain: I'm normal again!  I'll remember this day for the rest of
             my life!

LORD RAPTOR: (please correct)

Lord Raptor's evil master shows up and congratulates the ghoul on a job
well done.
Raptor demands that his master fulfill his end of the bargain... to give
Raptor ultimate power.
The big guy agrees and bestows the power upon Raptor.
Raptor, relishing in his new-found power.
    Raptor: Yes, this is it! I now have the power to rule the world!
    Master: Yes, Raptor... and shall I rule you.
Master leaves.
    Raptor: Fool! No one controls Lord Raptor!
He then says that, in the end, he would even rule over his master! He then
grows into a very demonic and scary-looking Raptor!

MORRIGAN: (please correct)

Picture of Pyron unconscious on the ground, Morrigan leaning over him.
    Morrigan says something like: "Sleep now forever.  Sleep and dream
                  of me."
She then kisses him, then he shrivels up into a corpse.
Picture of the castle in Morrigan's background, then a servant.
    Servant says something like:  "Mistress, you were gone so long!
            I was so worried. If the 'master' found out about your jumps
            to Earth, he'd do things to me that would frighten even
    Morrigan: Don't worry, I can handle 'the master.'
Picture of a large room, Morrigan lying on a stone slab.
    Servant: So what were you doing on earth?
    Morrigan: Just having some fun, nothing to be worried about.
Morrigan turns to the screen and smiles. The shot of the smiling Morrigan
"closes" like a book and vines grow along it.

PYRON: (please correct)

Pyron exclaims that he now is the most powerful being in space! He then
declares that the earth will now become a part of his collection. Then, we
switch scenes to a seismologist crying out that temperatures are rising off
the scale! Switch to a scene of the earth... shrinking... and orbiting...
around one of Pyron's fingers as a ring...

RIKUO: (please correct)

After Rikuo defeats Pyron, you see him back in his stage (background)
    Rikuo: "At last, the threat of the Dark One has passed."
A female version of Rikuo splashes out of the water.
    She: "I have heard of a great warrior, a lord of the seas and had
          hoped he be one of my kind."
    Rikuo: "How can this be?  I thought I was the last of my kind. Be my
            queen, we can start all over" (something like that).
Rikuo and the mermaid underwater, with the mermaid holding their baby.
The narration then says something like "One year later, an heir to the
throne is born, an heir to a budding empire!"


The family of Sasquatches gather around, what appears to be, the
Sasquatch Elder. They are all excited about a new letter they received
from their leader... "Quick!  Read it!" the children cry. "He has done
it!" they all exclaim. They are all happy that the leader has won...
the conquering of humans shall now begin!  Switch to a scene where
Sasquatch is jump kicking a tree... he declares that the Bigfoot race
shall take over the human race and come out of hiding to assume their
rightful rule!


Victor is caressing a skeleton's skull. The skeleton is lying in a red
coffin, and Victor is leaning over it.
    Victor: Doctor, Doctor wake up. You made me the strongest and I won.
            Why are you so quiet?
The screen pans over to a girl behind Victor:
    Girl: Victor...
    Girl: Father cannot share your joy. The villagers were not so kind.
          Come, there is much to do.
New picture of girl swinging on Victor's finger.
    Girl: Tomorrow we plan but today let us celebrate!
