[top]Tips & Strategies

Final Fight:

Each character in the game has advantages and disadvantages:

Guy- Fastest walking speed and attack speed. Deals the weakest damage per hit. Deals more damage with the Sword pick-up, and has the fastest swing. Special move (attack + jump) has the shortest range.

Cody- Walking speed is just slightly slower than Guy. Attack speed and damage is between Guy and Haggar. Cody has the ability to wield the knife in the same way he would a pipe or sword (rather than throwing it), his knife strikes have range equal to his standard attack but do more damage and knock down his opponents. Special move (attack + jump) has greatest range (just slightly greater than Haggar).

Haggar- Slowest walking speed. Deals the greatest damage per hit, but has the slowest standard attack. Wields the pipe faster and for more damage than the other two characters. Has two special attacks, the standard (attack + jump) which has medium range and deals strong damage and the jumping piledriver (grab, then jump and while airborne press attack) which is the single strongest move in the game. The piledriver can hit enemies on the way down for basic damage.

Magic Sword:

There are several characters with can be used as sidekicks in the game, each with advantages and disadvantages:

Amazon- Fires weapon rapidly and has average health level. Takes standard damage. Deals standard damage.

Big Man- Weapon has a boomerang effect, but is slow to use. Highest health level and endurance. Deals Highest damage.

Knight- Strongest all around sidekick. Good endurance, damage, and health. Only available in later levels of the game. Weapons spreads at higher levels.

Lizardman- Has high health, but standard endurance. Deals strong damage, but weapon has no spread ability. Requires the diamond ring to be in your inventory to recruit.

Ninja- High health, weak endurance. Fires 2-5 throwing stars which bounce off walls till off screen.

Priest- Lowest basic health and endurance. Strong against undead enemies.

Thief- Bombs have very limited range, but deals strong damage. Average health and endurance. Has the ability to "see" hidden chest (they flash on the screen)

Wizard- Has low health and endurance. Has the strongest attack of any sidekick when fully charged (will sweep screen and kill all basic enemies in one hit).


[top]Cheats, Glitches, & Exploits

Final Fight:

Cody & Guy Infinite stun:

When playing as Cody or Guy there is a trick to keep your opponent stunned till there life runs out.

As either character face your enemy and press the attack button twice to strike two quick jabs. Immediately push the opposite direction on the d-pad or analog stick and press attack again to throw your third attack at nothing. Now turn back and repeat. If done correctly the enemy will take two hits and remain stunned till you turn back to strike again, be careful not to shift up or down as you will miss the attack and void the combo.


[top]Roadmap

Final Fight:

You will need three playthroughs (one with each character) to get the three basic trophies in this game.

Do not try to do your speed levels and point levels in the same game.
Changing characters mid-level will not qualify as clearing the level with either character.
All trophies can be earned online or off on any difficulty.
If you play a local game you will be able to restart an individual level show you miss an objective.
You will need to do one of your runs co-op, personally I recommend the speed run. See Final Fighters for notes about co-op problems.

First run (points)

Doing the point run first will allow you to get a sense of where and how many opponents are in each level. Haggar is a good choice since his speed is so slow, but his attacks are strong. Don't worry about continues in this run and just try to get a sense of where the difficult spots are.

Second run (speed)

Choose either Guy or Cody and try to get through as quickly as you can. In many places you do not need to kill all the enemies on the screen, keep moving forward and only stop to fight when the screen stops advancing.

Third run (clean-up)

Choose the last of the three characters and move at a comfortable pace. Target any task in the vault you have not yet accomplished.


Magic Sword:

You will need at least three runs to complete all task in the vault.

For co-op credit you cannot use any of the secret warps and must complete all 50 levels start to finish.
For co-op credit the second player must join at the beginning of the first level, this is not a sensitive as the Final Fight requirement.

First run (co-op)

Try to get it out of the way first. Use this run to find out which sidekick works best for you. After you defeat the final boss choose to either take or destroy the black pearl.

Second run (first warp set)

During this run you'll be using the warps listed below under Locksmith, use as many as you can. You cannot do them all in one run as some will force you skip levels that contain warps. After you defeat the final boss choose the option you did not choose in your first run.

Third run (second warp set)

Use this run to get any warps you had previously missed and clean-up any additional task needed. The ending you choose does not matter.


[top]Trophies

[top]
Coin Gobbler
Final Fight™: Complete all levels using less than 18 continues.

This is a fairly simple task. Just keep an eye on your life bar and try to keep all your enemies to one side of you.

This trophy is easier to obtain in co-op as the enemies will be divided between you both.

You can lower the difficulty level if needed.

Enemies do not usually attack from offscreen, with the exception of charge attacks, so if you knock an opponent off screen advance to the edge and continue attacking. They will usually try to reenter in the same spot and will walk into your attack.

Watch out for Andore Jr. if he knocks you down he will usually try to do a sit drop for additional damage. This attack is devastating and difficult to avoid, however if you push up or down while on the ground recovering there is a small chance you will shift up as you stand and be missed by the attack.

Cody-pendant
Final Fight™: Complete all levels with Cody.

You must complete all levels from the first character select screen to the end credits with Cody.

Final Fighters
Final Fight™: Complete all levels in co-op.

This trophy is a little sensitive. To get credit you must complete the game co-op from the opening character select screen to the final bosses defeat.

If the second player joins after the character select has finished and the first part of the Slums has started it will not count players as completing that level together.

This game is fairly fast paced and goes rather quickly. Watch your life and try to always have a sidekick with a decent level and good health.

This trophy is easier to achieve in co-op.

You can lower the difficulty level if needed and use the warps to move through the game faster.

You must start on level 1 to achieve this trophy.

[top]
Sore Thumb
Magic Sword: Complete all levels.

There are 50 floors in the game not including secret passages. To unlock this trophy you must complete the 50 basic levels, not the secrets.

Each level must be done from start to finish.

[top]
Ninja Skills
Magic Sword: Complete any level without being hit, and without using a Magic Attack.

After each boss there is a small transition level. Usually it looks like you are walking from one tower to another.

These levels are very short and usually only have about five enemies and a flock of bats. The first one which will be Floor 6 has a chest that contains an invincibility shield followed immediately by a chest containing a kill all tome that will destroy all enemies on the screen.

As soon as this level begins start spamming your basic attack and move to the chest, grab the shield, then the tome, and move to the end of the screen. Level done and the trophy is yours, just don't use your magic attack.

[top]
Save the World
Magic Sword: Fight and kill Drokmar.

Drokmar is the final boss of Magic Sword.

Simply reach him and kill him, difficulty and the number of continues used do not matter. The trophy will appear just before the prompt asking you to choose between destroying and taking the Black Orb.
