    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Slow motion replay: Hold Punch + Kick + Dodge immediately after winning a round. This may only be done once per game.
    • Replay taunt: Hold Punch, Kick, or Dodge during a replay. Another taunt is available if a round is won in less than ten seconds.
    • View credits: Hold Start during demo mode.
    • Alternate music: Hold Start in the brief pause before the first match of each round. Player one and two's Start butting brings up different music.
    • Alternate costumes: Hold Up while choosing a fighter at the character selection screen.
    • Hint: View Kage unmasked: Fight as Kage and win twenty consecutive matches. From now on, Kage's mask will fall off when he is knocked down.
    • Hint: Bird in Jacky's stage: Hold all buttons and both joysticks down during Jacky's mountain stage to bring a bird that will appear in the background. It will fly over the fighter that loses the match.
    • Hint: Shake high score screen: Play as Akira and get to the high score screen. Enter you initials, but do not select "End". Move Akira back as far as possible, then execute any special move.
