Battle Arena Toshinden 2 - USA FAQ

These moves are as accurate as I can be sure of, I have verified them
over and over again.  They are correct.

Eiji Shinjo - Adventurer

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  22
 Height:  5' 8"
 Weight:  140 lbs.
 Blood Type:  A
 Origin:  Japan
 Weapon:  Hyakko no Tachi/White Tiger Fang (Nihontoh)


After returning from the last Battle Arena Toshinden with his dreams
unfulfilled, Eiji continued to dream about fighting and beating his
brother.  His dreams were very real.  No other opponent would satisfy him -
it had to be his brother.  He is now facing the next Battle Arena
Toshinden, believing that his brother will be there and the fight of his
dreams will happen at last.

Hyakki Moshuu Ken   F, DF, D, DB, D, DB, D, DF, F, T   Charging Sword      

Eiji grew up in awe of his brother Sho, the might warrior, and never
imagined he could ever surpass him.  His quest to find Sho eventually led
him to victory in the Toshinden Battle Arena.  Looking at the one who
fought to protect the secret organization, he finally understands a great
truth - that the power to shape our destiny lies in our own hands...


Kayin Amoh - Bounty Hunter

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  23
 Height:  5' 9"
 Weight:  141 lbs.
 Blood Type:  AB
 Origin:  England
 Weapon:  Carrivarn (Long sword)


Believing that fighting brings about tragedy, Kayin put away is sword after
the last Battle Arena Toshinden.  However, to ensure Kayin's participation,
the Himitsu Kessha kidnapped Kayin's foster daughter Naru.  After much
personal struggle, Kayin decided that there are fights that result in
happiness, and he went to the last battle to win back his daughter.  He no
longer holds any doubts, as he returns to this Battle Arena Toshinden ready
to fight.

Hell's Inferno      F, DF, D, DB, B, DB, D, DF, F, T   Charging Sword

His peaceful life with Naru destroyed by the secret organization, Kayin
once more took up his sword, realizing that battle was sometimes necessary
to defend happiness.  His fighting skill is proof of a hard life without
rest, the life of a professional bounty hunter.  Will the man who has
conquered all in the Toshinden Battle Arena continue to fight against
destiny for all eternity?


Sofia - Private Detective

 Sex:  Female
 Age:  25
 Height:  5' 7"
 Weight:  110 lbs.
 Blood Type:  A
 Origin:  Russia
 Weapon:  Kraasnui Boorya (Whip)


In the last battle, Sofia learned that her memory had been tampered with.  
She had been told of the life she once had, but nothing could equal a true
memory.  Because of this she was full of sorrow.  Since then, Sofia learned
that another fighter is facing the same sorrow.  In search of that fighter,
she comes to the Battle Arena Toshinden.

No-one can truly understand Sofia's pain - the sorrow of having no past.  
Her heart fills with sadness each time she remembers that she cannot
remember.  Joining the Toshinden Battle Arena, she hoped to save herself,
and the warrior Chaos, in whom she recognized a fellow sufferer.  But the
fight was in vain and now she must struggle on, her burden of sadness even
heavier than before...


Rungo Iron - Miner

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  31
 Height:  6' 4"
 Weight:  204 lbs.
 Blood Type:  A
 Origin:  U.S.A.
 Weapon:  Club


Since the last Battle Arena Toshinden, Rungo safely rescued his wife and
child from the hands of the Himitsu Kessha and learned that Gaia had
organized the last battle without their permission.  Realizing that Gaia
is not the enemy after all, Rungo could not ignore his warning that
something evil was about to happen at this battle.  He joins Gaia ready
for combat.

Dairikugekichindan       X+O+T+S                  Power Batter Up

Daichihyakusai      B, DB, D, DF, F, DF, D, DB, B, T   Mega Fire Strike

There was only one answer Rungo could give to Gaia's plea - to agree to
fight.  As a man of justice, he could not allow the evil of the secret
organization to continue, and as a father, he was bound to protect his
beloved family.  His pledge to defeat the organization fulfilled, his
presence now looms even more powerfully across the land.


Fo Fai - Magician

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  107
 Height:  5'
 Weight:  106 lbs.
 Blood Type:  AB
 Origin:  China
 Weapon:  Konsougakka (Claws)


Those who knew him well could feel the power just by looking at his twisted
smile.  The glow in Fo's smile shows the number of people he has killed.
Fo has set forth towards the Battle Arena Toshinden once again in pursuit
of his finest smile.

Do Don Pa      F, B, DB, D, DF, F, B, T      Mystic Sphere Assault

The friendly face of the magician hides Fo's black heart - the heart of an
assassin.  The ecstacy of combat and the sweetness of battle made him laugh
with joy, but now the fighting is over.  The smile fades from his lips, and
as he stands in the midst of peace and beauty, the true face of the
assassin appears once again.


Mondo - Omnitsu

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  43
 Height:  5' 9"
 Weight:  146 lbs.
 Blood Type:  AB
 Origin:  Japan
 Weapon:  Seiryuu no Yari/Green Dragon Spear

With secret orders, Mondo returned with information from the Himitsu
Kessha.  Just as his client (another organization) was about to attack the
Himitsu Kessha, Mondo received an invitation to the Battle Arena Toshinden.
As a way to retaliate, the organization tried to hold Mondo back, telling
him to discard the invitation.  Mondo ignored the restraint and headed for
the tournament without consent of his client.  The shadows of his history
are those of a fighter, not of a secret warrior.

The descendent of a warrior family, the only time Mondo can express himself
is in battle.  His face a blank, he threw himself into combat, heeding
nothing but the call of destiny.  Victory in the Toshinden Battle Arena is
sweeter to this fighting machine than success in any of his previous


Duke B. Rambert - Lord of the Manor

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  30
 Height:  6' 2"
 Weight:  165 lbs.
 Blood Type:  A
 Origin:  France
 Weapon:  Dernier Vancour (2-handed sword)


After defeating his foe at the last Battle Arena Toshinden, Duke returned
to his castle to train as a knight.  Recently he received another
invitation.  His face froze as he looked at the name of the sender:
Uranus, from the Himitsu Kessha.  Unable to believe it, he clasped his
precious sword, the Dernier Vancour, and set off to battle again.

The End             DB, D, DF, F, B, T       Flaming Cyclone

Duke's heart turned to ice when he learnt that Uranus was behind the
Toshinden Battle Arena.  The transformation of the person he once loved
shocked and disgusted him, and anger gave him the power to defeat all
enemies.  But his face is now filled with sadness - the face of a knight
unable to save the one he loved so dearly...


Ellis - Dancer

 Sex:  Female
 Age:  17
 Height:  5' 2"
 Weight:  101 lbs
 Blood Type:  O
 Origin:  Turkey
 Weapon:  Dirks


Ellis has learned that Gaia, the man in armor, was her real father.  For
some reason, she felt neither fondness nor hatred towards him.  She decided
to go back to the troupe of traveling minstrels who had raised her.  A year
passed and she received another invitation.  With that, she was informed
that her father was wanted by the Himitsu Kessha as a traitor.  Still
having no feelings towards her father, yet she decided to go in the hope of
saving him.

they rose up to take on and destroy the secret organization.  Fate was on
Ellis' side, and now she stands triumphant over the Toshinden Battle Arena,
the organization and its evil plans crushed.


Gaia - Master Monk

 Sex:  Male
 Age:  40+
 Height:  7'
 Weight:  201 lbs
 Blood Type:  O
 Origin:  Japan
 Weapon:  Armor Bastar


As the Himitsu Kessha found out the truth behind the last Battle Arena
Toshinden, Gaia was branded as a traitor and was marked for death.  During
his flee, he received an invitation.  The sender was Uranus, his former
colleague and long time enemy.  "No matter where I hide, she knows where I
am," he thought.  Gaia took off his heavy armor as he headed towards the

Batsu             X+O+T+S                     Demon Air Drill

Gaia was sure it was Uranus who had led the secret organization into evil.
But it was too late to do anything - the Master had already started out on
her path of destruction.  Now Gaia has triumphed:  the organization is
defeated and the Master destroyed.  But as he looks at the fallen Master,
he remembers Ellis, and his victory seems suddenly hollow and


Tracy - Police Woman

 Sex:  Female
 Age:  21
 Height:  5' 4"
 Weight:  106 lbs
 Blood Type:  B
 Origin:  U.S.A.
 Weapon:  Tonfas


She was a righteous female cop who always let her opponent strike the
first blow so that she could use self-defense as an excuse to exert maximum
lethal force.  She received an invitation to the Battle Arena Toshinden and
thought, "I'm glad it wasn't a request for a written apology."  Relieved,
she picked up her Tonfas with a new gleam in her eyes.

Crazy Planet        F, B, F, B, T            Police Brutality

It seemed that this hard-bitten New York cop entered the Toshinden Battle
Arena just to improve her fighting skills and exalt in the thrill of
combat.  But under the steely exterior lies a strong belief in justice and
righteousness.  Although she prefers to appear tough and ruthless, the
spirit that brought her victory shows what her heart is truly made of.

*Big Mistake:  This move doesn't really do anything in itself, after you
do the motions, start pressing a kick button.  If your opponent is in the
air, you will kick him/her out of the air, of you will land with a kick to
their head.  You can also switch to the Jackpot move in the air.

 Origin:  Sri Lanka
 Weapon:  Scythe


He is one of the top executives of the Himitsu Kessha.  People feared that
there was no one who could equal his prominent combat skills of his
vengeance.  But then a change took place in him.  He stopped talking
despite having been a man of many words.  Rumors spread that "perhaps he
had lost his memory."  That is when his entry in the Battle Arena Toshinden
was decided.  What was the promoter's real intention?  Chaos did not say a

At last her true self revealed.  No longer hidden behind the scenes, she
sees herself clearly.  But this does not surprise her.  She is already mad,
cold and insane, and feelings no longer have meaning for her.  What lies
ahead on her future path?  The Master stands alone and isolated, her heart
lost forever...

looking into his cold eyes, it seems that only a hopeless and desolate
future awaits him...

Why does he fight?  Why does he sacrifice everything in following the way
of the sword?  In front of the proud and lonely warrior Sho, words have no
meaning.  The unshakeable confidence in his eyes, and the eloquence of his
sword, tell all.  Will Sho, better known as the Stranger, continue on his
quest forever?
