FATAL FURY REAL BOUT SPECIAL - DEADHEAT FIGHTERS EDITION FOR THE GAMEBOY SYSTEM (VERSION UPDATE)
Re-written by Kelvin Leen (a.k.a Billy Kane) Please do not edit the contents in the FAQ. Thank you !
FOREWORD : This version is an update from the previous FAQ written. This time a little more things are added.
What is Real Bout Fatal Fury's story ?
It's just a version of Fatal Fury that was made for die-hard fans. I heard that there wasn't any story for the Neo-Geo version, although it's just another excuse to see Terry get whipped by Krasuer once more ... hehehe.
In this version of the FAQ, we'll cover most things about this game. I like it a lot but being a gameboy game, several original characters are lost and they are :
Bob Wilson, Franco Bash, Tung Fu Rue, Cheng, Sokaku, the EX characters, and finally Jin Chonshu.
Everything else is in and rocking !
GAMEPLAY CHANGES : -
-You can sidestep in the game ! Just hit A+B to avoid a move or attack. -There are counters in the game. Unlike the original, you can counter anytime. Your counters are based on 1-3 stars ranking, a 3 star being a strong counter while a 1 star being just a weak counter. -You still can trap your foes at a corner and bash him/her till the corner breaks (Well, not quite.) -Super desperation moves are easier to do, just 2 (D,Dt,T) motion and either A or B button. Those that have to be done close will only take place when your foe is close. -Select button taunts your foe. You can cancel it by any movement or button press. -There's also an asshole hidden in the game. :)

HOW TO USE THE BONUS CHARACTERS ?
At the options, go to sound test option and hold Left + A When you enter, go to SOFT DIP and change the 1st ZERO to ONE. Exit and start the game. Go to Billy and Krasuer's face and hit start. Billy will change into Iori and Krasuer to Geese.
UPDATED ! This set of codes are recently found on the net. Try them at the risk of spoiling the fun.
Go into the options and select it by holding Left and A together. Change the soft dip option to make it look like this :
This will enable you to play as GEESE and IORI (the first 1 activates this code), have Extra Power at your power meter that builds up with time (the second 1 allows this to work) and finally the last 1 activates the ability to use SELECT + A or B to activate moves shortcut, SDM and DM are done anytime in the game. (Not everyone has this option, read on.)
Well, basically you can play this way but it's really gonna take the thrill out of playing the game. The EXTRA POWER code is bad enough for me ... I feel that there isn't much of a reason why you ought to use the new cheats I added.
For some characters like Duck King and Geese, the SHORTCUT moves cheat is great to use. This makes their moves easier to execute and also the tendency to cheat through the game. Feeling guilty yet ? No ... then read on !
Terry's shortcut attacks - Select + A : TRI GEYSER Select + B : POWER GEYSER (In air) Select + A : In air Power Dunk Select + B : In air Crackshot

Iori's Shortcut - Select+A Final Chrono Flame (Hold onto A to control move's distance.) Select+B Maiden Masher In air Select+A In air Triple Lotus crusher In air Select+B In air Rising upper
Most of the in air attacks are VERY unlikely to hit anybody. The shortcuts' cheat does not work for linked up gaming (VS player 2 mode) The best way to connect the in air moves is to try jumping real low, and pressing the combined buttons at once. You can taunt and press the Select button and A/B to do something, like a surprise ! Characters like Geese, Laurance, Duck and Andy are much better to use. You can also get high ratings with this cheat. (All matchups rank of SSS is not unheard of.) Anyhow, it's up to you if you want to activate this cheat.
Terry - He has great moves for anyone to begin with, and his Power geyser rocks everyone up. You can easily get S ranks with him. When he gets cornered, a monkey will drop out once the corner points drops to zero. (Rating *****/*****)
Andy - He ain't too nice, but his moves need a lot of getting use to. I don't use him often, and even when I do, I only get A rankings. When he's cornered, a gold bar drops out. Why ? Don't ask me. (Rating ***/*****)
Joe - He's better than most characters, esp when it comes to his super attack. Even when blocked, it duels out strong lifebar loss and more if connected. When he's cornered, a crocodile appears. (Rating *****/*****)
Mai - What can I say, she's a vixen ! Her moves do take off nice amount of damage and worst still, she can do serious damage if her Sakura dance move connects completely ! Her supers however, are not easy to use. When she's cornered, a fan will drop out. (Rating ****/*****)
Chonrei - Well, he's a powerful character overall, not much bad points about him. His projectile can help connect into a lot of combos, so use it wisely ! When he's cornered, a Panda head drops out. (Rating *****/*****)
Mary - She's a grappler and her counters are useful for those who knows how to cheat with her. You can easily finish the game with a full string of SS rankings if you're a master. When she's cornered, a crab appears ! (Rating ****/*****)
Kim - Kim's a heavy hitter, if you know how to connect his mini kicks into a chain of combos. I don't really know how to use him, but I keep using the Rising Sandblast kick to win. Use the frame trick to watch his P Power attack ... cool. When He gets cornered, Chang Koehan (KOF partner) appears ! Cute one ! (Rating ***/*****)
Duck King - Ducky never found a place in my mind. Don't try playing him in HARD mode cause that's real hard ! I only beat Krasuer once using him in hard and lost to GEESE there after. His super's hard to do to. When he gets cornered, a chick appears ! (Rating **/*****)
Yamazaki - Not too easy to use. His attacks are strong but best used wisely. His supers are useful if you can connect them on your foe without problems. Play smart using him. When he gets cornered, a cobra appears! (Rating : ***/*****)
Billy - Another one, play him smart and there's no problem. His moves build his meters real fast, so use that advantage against others. His S Power super is very tricky against most characters. When he gets cornered, a guitar drops out. (Rating *****/*****)
Laurence - He's a tough nut to crack. Not easy to use too. His supers takes a lot of practice to use. I like his P Power super the most. When he gets cornered, a cow appears ! (Rating **/*****)
Krasuer - One of the most powerful characters in the game, Krasuer can take many foes down with a simpel Kaiser wave. Store your Kaiser Waves, the computer often leaves you to your storing ! When he gets cornered, a suit of armour appears. (Rating *****/*****)
Geese - HE'S A WEAK MAN ! LAME ! USELESS ! I hate using him. I rather use Duck King than trying to finsih the game with him. His moves are bad ... guess it takes a fan to get use to him. When he gets cornered, a ghost drops out. (Rating */*****)
Iori - He's a powerhouse, esp with his uppercut. If one can't get your foe, do a second and it'll hit ! The desperation (S power) is not useful to him, but hey, you can simply play him using uppercuts ! When he gets cornered, a (you guessed it) moon drops out. (Rating *****/*****)
Note : The cornered items only apply to the person's stage only.
