I found you can have access to two levels of power when you're doing a Super Special attack. You can make an alternate version of Cassandra's White Wave super but directly on the ground. Look at Cassandra's own character moves list for more details. Thanks a lot to Kuang Liew for this great pieces of info. c) I found some infos about Abubo (not Abobo). Look at Abubo own character moves list for more details. Thanks to Playmore(www.playmore.co.jp) for the new things about this mid-boss. Version 1.1 (2001/08/01) After having played many times, and writing a faq for some times now, I am ready to give it to the public. My major issues in this faq are about the backgrounds of the characters, the controls, and the moves names and their respective joystick motions. Any help on these will be greatly appreciated. 2) INTRODUCTION Rage of the Dragons it's a Tag Team fighting game (2 VS 2) developed by Noise Factory and distributed by Evoga. The victory goes to the first team able to defeat the 2 other fighters. The game features 14 playable characters and 2 bosses. I'm writing this because I don't find any faq about this game until today, and I think this game deserve it because it's a very good one. The fighting engine is great and the graphics are good (a little under Mark of the Wolves standard). The animation it's sometimes choppy, but real good in general. The backgrounds and the musics are OK. There probably a few mistakes about the names and the background of the characters; the controls; the names and the motion of the special moves, but I'm still working on it. Sadly, the Rage of the Dragons machine in my local arcade it's already gone. So, if I don't find an other arcade with the game, I will probably buy the NeoGeo cartridge to complete this faq. 3) STORY 3.1) The Legend of the Dragons The art of the dragons it's a very unique art among the rest because it practices the worship of the dragons, ancient creatures that once roar on the earth. This mythical art can transform the human energy into power for good or evil depending of which dragon the user decides to adore. The cult comes from all parts of the world, and in many ancient cultures it was used. However, there are different ways to learn the abilities of the dragons. The power of the dragons gives to the user the power over many elements among other powers. But the resonance among the different dragons provokes the user to look for the challenge of other dragons. Those who pay respect to the legends will fight for honor. But those blinded by ambition and power will destroy the adversaries to gain more power from the defeated dragon. The dragons have been in many different ways and in very different persons along the history. They have decided some important parts of mankind during many centuries. Sometimes, evil dragons raise to gain power to become superior over other dragons and rules. Unavoidably, the dragons must clash to balance the power and keep peace. The humans are conducts to the dragons energy, and can live in harmony or be consumed by the power of the dragons. Those that had summoned a dragon are also mark to be in constant confrontation with the rest of the dragons and to feel the resonance of the spirits. Only those who train can control the full power of the dragons. Those who don't will live in a constant confusion because they don't know how to deal with this kind of power. 3.2) Background Story Sunshine City is ruined. Decadent and corrupted, the city is a no man's land ruled by the law of the strongest. The police and the national army are not able to stop the violence wave along with the corruption in the government and others authorities that make the situation worse. Among the chaotic situation exist a strong group that practice the religious worship to the BLACK DRAGON. This group is quite recent but has gain a lot of young followers with their faith lost in life and in a world in economic recession and severe climatic crisis.

From their, this young man controls the city in totality and the fates of many people. This man has been possessed by the evil spirit of the BLACK DRAGON, an ancient spirit confined in a sacred stone and it was awaken by this powerful man. Long ago, he was a martial student, tenacious and strong but also too ambitious. Because of this, he was expulsed from the dojo where he was learning the ways of the dragons along with the SHO SETZU KEN art.

But a tragedy and a dispute between both brothers after Marian's death, the girlfriend of Jimmy, make them to split and leave the training. The old master knew that this could be dangerous because they did not achieve enough discipline to control the dragons power that lives inside them. After the confrontation, both brothers took different ways in a self quest to find more about the dragons and how to control the power that lives inside them and grows each time more and more. Knowing that his days where count, the master decide to give to his grandaughter, Lynn Baker, the WHITE DRAGON seal and train her in this art to have a successor. But he did not expected that an old student returned to show how powerful he became with the BLACK DRAGON spirit. So he confronted his old master, but because of his elderly age, the old man died before the fight. After he left the dojo, Lynn returned to the site after she escaped from the training. She felt the fall of a dragon and the rising power of a new one. This energy was felt also to by the brothers who decide to return to the city, each one by their own side to know what is going on, while the power of the BLACK DRAGON keeps growing more and more powerful. 4) BASIC CONTROLS Up : Up QCF : Quarter Circle Forward Uf : Up-Forward QCB : Quarter Circle Back Fd : Forward HCF : Half Circle Forward Df : Down-Forward HCB : Half Circle Back Dn : Down DP : Fd,Dn,Df (Dragon Punch Motion) Db : Down-Back Bk : Back Ub : Up-Back Buttons A-B-C-D : Weak Punch - Weak Kick - Strong Punch - Strong Kick Swift Escape : Press AB Escape Roll : Fd or Bk + AB Tag Partner : Press BC Counter Attack : Back + CD (before the opponent hits you) First Impact : Press CD Team Duplex : HCF+BC Dash : Forward, Forward Retreat : Back, Back Taunt : Press Start Surrender : Press ABCD SPECIAL METER : You can accumulate three Power Stocks and you keeps it when you tag your partner.
