• Challenge Fateful Enemy/Level Skip : At the character selection screen, hold start and press A to choose your character.

• Crazy Mode : Press and hold UP on both control sticks while holding down the P1, P2 and A,B,C and D buttons on both sides before the start of the first round.
NOTE : Crazy Mode can only be used in a 2-Player vs game.

• Expert Mode : At the title screen press Start while holding down the A,B,C, and D buttons

• Easy Way To Unlock Saojin : Play the game for a little while (a couple of rounds will do), then access the CALENDAR SETTING option from the MAIN MENU. At this time change the date so that it is a month or two ahead of what it was originally, then exit the MAIN MENU. Now when you reach the PLAYER SELECT screen you should see a box over Master Huang's head with a number in it (99). After entering 99 credits, the box should disappear and Saojin's portrait should be there. She is now selectable.
NOTE : If this code doesn't work for you at first, clear the old MM data then follow the above steps.
