--------------
01. THE BASICS
--------------

Menu Controls
=============

A Button Choose/Confirm

B Button Cancel/Go Back

R Trigger Fast Scrolling
Hold the R trigger to scroll faster on screens with
long lists/categories.


In-Game Controls
================

X Button Weak
Used for weak strikes and holds. The exact move
varies depending on situation.

A Button Medium
Used for medium strikes and holds. The exact move
varies depending on situation.

B Button Strong
Used for strong strikes and holds. The exact move
varies depending on situation.

Y Button Run/Weapon
This will allow you to voluntarily run (as opposed
to being Hammer Thrown).
When outside of the ring, stand close to the ring
apron and press Y + direction toward the ring to
grab a weapon from underneath the ring.
If/when a weapon is dropped on the ground, it may be
picked up again by standing "above" it and pressing
Y + D-Pad Down.
NOTE: In the Fluorescent Lights Deathmatch, you can
grab the lights off of the boards on the corners by
pressing Y + direction toward the corner. The light
can then be shattered over the head of an opponent.

D-Pad Walk
The D-Pad directions are relative to the screen
(Ex. pressing D-Pad Up will walk into the depth, or
"toward the top of the screen")

L Trigger Breathe/Tag
Hold Breathe to catch your breath and avoid fatigue
during a match. Knowing when and where to use this
is part of the strategy.
In Tag Matches, press L + D-Pad toward a partner,
who is standing on the apron, to tag out.

R Trigger 3D Walk
Holding 3D Walk will modify the D-Pad directions so
that they are first-person perspective rather than
relative to the screen.
(Ex. Holding 3D Walk and pressing D-Pad Up will walk
forward in your wrestler's point-of-view)

Analog Performance
Every wrestler has up to four different Performances
(taunts/poses). Each one is triggered by one of the
Analog Stick's four directions: LEFT, RIGHT, UP, and
DOWN. Some wrestlers may have a taunt assigned to
more than one direction.

Start Pause the game.
Pause Menu:
1. Continue
2. Mode Select (Exit to Main Menu)
If you choose Mode Select, you will be asked:
OK? (to exit the match)
1. Yes
2. No

Gameplay System
===============

The exact move your wrestler will execute depends on the wrestler's own
move set and fighting style. However, the method used in order to
perform those moves are universal.

As a general rule, the moves you use should gradually advance from your
weakest to your strongest over the course of the match. Doing strong
moves at the opening of the match will usually be reversed/countered,
but depending on the specific circumstance, it may actually work,
although it is not recommended. The flow of a typical Fire Pro match
simulates that of a properly worked pro wrestling match.

**Striking
Striking moves are done by simply pressing the attack buttons. Over
time, players should become familiar with the distance at which you
must stand from the opponent in order to land striking moves
properly. Different strikes will reach different distances.

[When standing, opponent also standing]
1. X (Weak Strike)
2. A (Medium Strike)
3. B + D-Pad in any direction (Strong Strike #1)
4. B (Strong Strike #2)
5. X + A simultaneously (Strong Strike #3)

**Grappling
Simply walk into your opponent to grapple. The moment the two
wrestlers make contact, you will hear a small "smack" sound effect.
Be the first to press a button or button+direction at/after the
sound to win the grapple (which move is actually done will depend
on which button or button+direction was pressed by that player).
For beginners, it may seem hard at first, but once you are familiar
with it, the timing becomes a completely natural reaction.

NOTE: Repeated pressing a button rapidly will NOT win a grapple, it
can cause you to lose it.

Counters/reversals depend on many factors: in many cases, if an
opponent is not worn down enough to take a big move, it will be
countered/reversed automatically. If the two wrestlers press
simultaneously, you will go into a Test of Strength -- the only
instance where "button mashing" has any effect in this gameplay
system.

[Front Grapple]
If you grapple an opponent facing you.
1. X (Weak Front Grapple Move #1)
2. X + D-Pad UP (Weak Front Grapple Move #2)
3. X + D-Pad LEFT or RIGHT (Weak Front Grapple Move #3)
4. X + D-Pad DOWN (Weak Front Grapple Move #4)
5. A (Medium Front Grapple Move #1)
6. A + D-Pad UP (Medium Front Grapple Move #2)
7. A + D-Pad LEFT or RIGHT (Medium Front Grapple Move #3)
8. A + D-Pad DOWN (Medium Front Grapple Move #4)
9. B (Strong Front Grapple Move #1)
10. B + D-Pad UP (Strong Front Grapple Move #2)
11. B + D-Pad LEFT or RIGHT (Strong Front Grapple Move #3)
12. B + D-Pad DOWN (Strong Front Grapple Move #4)
13. X + A simultaneously (Strong Front Grapple Move #5)
* Y (Hammer Throw, aka. Irish Whip)
UNIVERSAL: Used to throw opponent to the ropes. However,
there are other variations to this depending
on your own position:
- Your back is facing a corner
This will cause you to throw the opponent
into the corner, so that they are hooked
on it. See Corner Grapple for more.
- Your back is up against ropes
You will throw your opponent out of the
ring. See High Flying Moves for more.
- OUTSIDE: Your back is up against the apron
You will throw your opponent back into
the ring.
* R Trigger (Front Headlock)
UNIVERSAL: Used to take control of the opponent and walk
wherever you please, useful to moving the
opponent to the center of the ring. There is a
new variation to this:
- Your back is up against the ropes
This will cause you to throw the opponent
out to the apron (not down to the floor).
This is useful for setting up an Apron
Grapple move, see Apron Grapple for more.
Also, in tag matches, you can tag out while
holding an opponent in the Front Headlock,
which can be useful for setting up double team
maneuvers.
[Back Grapple]
If you grapple an opponent facing away. This is usually only
possible if the opponent is standing dazed, or is busy fighting
others in a multiplayer situation (ie. Battle Royals).
1. X (Weak Back Grapple Move)
2. A (Medium Back Grapple Move)
3. B (Strong Back Grapple Move #1)
4. B + D-Pad UP/DOWN (Strong Back Grapple Move #2)
5. B + D-Pad LEFT/RIGHT (Strong Back Grapple Move #3)
6. X + A simultaneously (Strong Back Grapple Move #4)
* Y (Hammer Throw, aka. Irish Whip)
UNIVERSAL: See Front Grapple Y above.
* R Trigger (Hold for double-team striking)
UNIVERSAL: Used to hold the opponent's arms back,
allowing a partner to attack.
* R Trigger + D-Pad UP (Shoulder Carry Setup)
UNIVERSAL: Used to set opponent on your shoulders to
setup for double team moves, such as the Road
Warriors' Doomsday Device.
When an opponent Back Grapples you, you can attempt to counter
by pressing X or A. The timing for countering is the same as
grappling offensively, as described at the top of this section.
[Corner Grapple]
When an opponent is hooked on the corner (see Front Grapple Y
on throwing to corner) you can walk in and grapple them.
1. B + D-Pad UP (Corner Grapple Move #1)
2. B + D-Pad LEFT/RIGHT (Corner Grapple Move #2)
3. B + D-Pad DOWN (Corner Grapple Move #3)
* R Trigger (Tree of Woe)
UNIVERSAL: Sets the opponent up in the "Tree of Woe"
(hooked upside-down on the corner).
[Apron Grapple]
This is a new category added in Fire Pro D. When an opponent is
standing on the apron, walk into them to grapple just as you
would for normal Front Grapple moves. See R Trigger under the
Front Grapple section above for an easy way to get opponents
out to the apron in order to setup for these moves.
1. Press either X, A, or B (Inside Apron Grapple Move)
When an opponent tries to perform an Apron Grapple, you can try
to counter:
1. Press either X, A, or B (Outside Apron Grapple Move)

**Running Attacks
Voluntarily run by pressing Y.
[Running Moves]
When you are running.
1. X (Running Attack #1)
2. A (Running Attack #2)
[Run Counters]
When an opponent is running (either voluntarily or after being
Hammer Thrown/Irish Whipped). Keep in mind that you are also
vulnerable to Run Counters when you run voluntarily.
1. X (Run Counter Move #1)
2. A (Run Counter Move #2)
* L Trigger (Dodge)
UNIVERSAL: Used to dodge a running opponent. Depending on
your fighting style, this may be a leap frog
or drop to the mat. Done often in professional
wrestling particularly by Junior Heavyweights.
[Corner Run]
When an opponent is hooked on a corner (see Front Grapple Y on
throwing to corner) you can run toward them for a move.
1. B (Corner Run Attack)

**High Flying Moves
High Flying Moves are not necessarily available to all wrestlers.
Large heavyweights generally have less/no high flying moves while
Luchadores generally have quite a few.
For moves such as Missile Kicks, you can do them whether the
opponent is dazed or not, although it would generally be wise to
attempt such moves only when they are dazed.
[Running Dive to Opponent Outside]
When in the ring and an opponent is standing outside, run
toward the ropes in the direction toward the opponent and hold
the B button.
[Slingshot to Opponent Outside]
When in the ring and an opponent is standing outside, stand up
against the ropes closest to the opponent and press B + D-Pad
in the direction toward the opponent.
[Slingshot from Apron to Opponent Inside]
When standing on the apron and an opponent is in the ring,
press B + D-Pad in the direction toward the opponent.
[Corner Post Moves]
Climb the corner by standing near it and pressing X or A +
D-Pad in the direction toward it. All four corners can be
climbed. You can also climb corners from the outside (commonly
done by American heavyweights) by pressing X + D-Pad in the
direction toward the corner when standing near it on the apron.
Also, when standing on the apron, you can swing around a corner
post to move to the apron on another side of the ring by
pressing A + D-Pad in the direction toward the corner.
1. X (Post Move #1)
2. A (Post Move #2)
3. B (Post Move #3)
4. X + A simultaneously (Post Move #4)
Which are aimed at standing opponents and which at downed
opponents completely depends on each wrestler's moveset
individually.
[Run-Up Rebound Moves]
Run toward a corner and hold the button.
1. X (Run-Up Rebound Attack vs standing opponent)
2. A (Run-Up Rebound Attack vs downed opponent)

**Downed Moves
When an opponent is down, you can do grounded strikes and
submissions by standing over them. For most pro wrestlers, at least
one of these moves should be a pin, depending on his style. Shoot
fighters and shoot style workers should not have a pin at all.
[Standing at the HEAD of an opponent facing UP]
1. A (Downed move #1)
2. B (Downed move #2)
* X (Pick up to feet by the hair/head)
UNIVERSAL: If the opponent is worn down enough, this is a
way to set them up standing dazed in order to
perform strong strikes or back grapples.
* R Trigger (Drag opponent)
UNIVERSAL: Used along with any direction on the D-Pad to
drag a downed opponent around. Often used to
pull opponents away from the ropes to avoid a
rope break if Rope Check is on (see Match
Configuration).
[Standing at the FEET of an opponent facing UP]
1. A (Downed move #3)
2. B (Downed move #4)
* X (Roll over)
UNIVERSAL: Roll opponent over to face down instead.
* R Trigger (Drag opponent)
UNIVERSAL: Used along with any direction on the D-Pad to
drag a downed opponent around. Often used to
pull opponents away from the ropes to avoid a
rope break if Rope Check is on (see Match
Configuration).

1. A (Downed move #5)
2. B (Downed move #6)
* X (Roll over)
UNIVERSAL: Roll opponent over to face up instead.
* R Trigger (Drag opponent)
UNIVERSAL: Used along with any direction on the D-Pad to
drag a downed opponent around. Often used to
pull opponents away from the ropes to avoid a
rope break if Rope Check is on (see Match
Configuration).
[Standing at the FEET of an opponent facing DOWN]
1. A (Downed move #7)
2. B (Downed move #8)
* X (Pick up to feet by the tights)
UNIVERSAL: If the opponent is worn down enough, this is a
way to set them up standing dazed in order to
perform strong strikes or back grapples.
* R Trigger (Drag opponent)
UNIVERSAL: Used along with any direction on the D-Pad to
drag a downed opponent around. Often used to
pull opponents away from the ropes to avoid a
rope break if Rope Check is on (see Match
Configuration).
[Downed Running]
Run toward a downed opponent and hold B.

**Multi-Teaming
Double Teaming (Two Platon) and Triple Teaming (Three Platon) moves
are done when more than one wrestler grapples an opponent. Such a
situation may occur in Battle Royals or even Tag matches when
partners are in the ring helping another partner. Situations
for multi-teaming include:
-Front Double Team (2 grapple an opponent from the front)
-Front Triple Team (3 grapple an opponent from the front)
-Back Double Team (2 grapple an opponent from behind)
-Back Triple Team (3 grapple an opponent from behind)
-Corner Double Team (2 corner-grapple an opponent)
-Corner Triple Team (3 corner-grapple an opponent)

**Mount System
Shoot-style mounting is available to most shoot fighters and some
shoot-style workers. The way to mount varies between fighters,
although it is usually assigned as one of the grapples and/or one
of the downed moves.
[Mount Position]
In the normal mount position, wait for the opponent's legs to
wrap around, that is your signal to press a button (similar to
the come-into-contact moment of a normal grapple).
1. X (Mount Position Move #1)
2. A (Mount Position Move #2)
3. B (Mount Position Move #3)
If you are on the receiving end of a Mount, you can counter by
pressing any of the three buttons (X, A, or B) at the signal.
This will execute your Mount Position Counter Move.
[Front Facelock Shoot Tackle Counter Position]
When you counter a shooter's attempt to tackle you for a Mount
Position, you will have him in a front facelock. You will
struggle for a moment and then hear a small "smack" sound, that
is your signal to press a button.
1. X (Front Facelock Move #1)
2. A (Front Facelock Move #2)
3. B (Front Facelock Move #3)
If you are on the receiving end of a Front Facelock, you can
counter by pressing any of the three buttons (X, A, or B) at
the signal. This will execute your Front Facelock Counter Move.
[Back Mount Position]
In the back mount position, wait for the mounting fighter to
raise both fists, that is the ready position which is your
signal to press a button.
1. X (Back Mount Position Move #1)
2. A (Back Mount Position Move #2)
3. B (Back Mount Position Move #3)
If you are on the receiving end of a Back Mount, you can
counter by pressing any of the three buttons (X, A, or B) at
the signal. This will execute your Back Mount Counter Move.

**Performance (Taunt/Pose)
Performing can be useful depending on your wrestler's fighting
style. Every wrestler has four different performances using the
four directions on the Analog Stick.
1. Analog Stick LEFT (Taunt/Pose #1)
2. Analog Stick RIGHT (Taunt/Pose #2)
3. Analog Stick UP (Taunt/Pose #3)
4. Analog Stick DOWN (Taunt/Pose #4)

**Exiting and Entering the Ring
To exit the ring to go out to the floor or entrance ramp, simply
stand up against the ropes and press X + D-Pad in the direction
toward the ropes. Do the same up against the ring apron to go back
inside.
Rather than exiting directly down to the floor, you can also exit
out to the apron first by using A instead of X. Doing so again will
jump down to the floor. Similarly, you can use A to climb up to the
apron before going directly inside.

**Weapons
To acquire a weapon, go outside to the floor, stand up against the
ring apron, and press Y + D-Pad toward the ring to grab a weapon
from underneath the ring.
Weapons are dropped voluntarily by pressing Y again. They can also
be dropped when grappling, when an opponent strikes, when an
opponent runs into you, etc. You can, however, use Breathe when
holding a weapon without dropping it.
To pick up a dropped weapon, press Y + D-Pad DOWN when standing
just slightly "above" the upper rim of it.

**Staying Down on the Mat
If you would like to stay down on the mat, hold the A button while
you are downed. If you are in the process of getting up to your
feet, holding A will keep you in a squatting position for a limited
amount of time, which could be useful for dodging strikes when an
opponent is expecting you to get up.

**Voluntarily Releasing a Pin/Submission/Illegal Hold
If you would like to either release a pin or hold to continue
punishing your opponent, or are performing an illegal act on a
fatigued opponent and would like to avoid the 5 count (if the
Disqualification Count is on), press the A button.

**Kicking Out of Pins and Escaping Holds
The most efficient way to kick out of a pin attempt is to simply
hold the A button. Similarly, to escape a submission holds more
efficiently, simply roll the D-Pad around in different directions
rapidly.
Rapidly tapping all the buttons ("button mashing") actually
decreases your chances of kicking out or escaping a hold.

the last separator (none) to merge Name1 and Name2 together.

[Color Section (Top of Screen)]
NOTE: For the purpose of clarity, the color section is not
translated literally (terms used are not the "official" words that
the game refers to them by.)
At the top of the Make Menu, press up again to go up to the color
section at the top of the screen. These color boxes control the
colors/shades of the wrestler's skin tone, costume pieces, etc.
Once you go up to the color section, a white bar and an arrow will
appear to show you what is highlighted. The white bar shows the
current COLOR SET while the arrow points to the current INDIVIDUAL
SHADE.

*COLOR SETS (Highlighted by the white bar)
Color Sets control the color that an entire costume piece will
appear to be. They are actually sets of different SHADES which
will give the illusion of a color with shadows. See INDIVIDUAL
SHADES below for an explanation of how to manipulate them
separately. There are many pre-set Color Sets that you can
choose from.
Hold Y+L Trigger: COPY highlighted Color Set to CLIPBOARD
Hold Y+R Trigger: PASTE from Color Set CLIPBOARD
L Trigger: Change to previous pre-set Color Set
R Trigger: Change to next pre-set Color Set
*INDIVIDUAL SHADES (Highlighted by the rotating arrow)
Sometimes, you may want to manipulate each Individual Shade Box
separately in order to achieve certain effects (ie. tights with
unique designs).
Hold X+L Trigger: COPY highlighted Shade Box to CLIPBOARD
Hold X+R Trigger: PASTE from Shade Box CLIPBOARD
A Button: Press to enter the RGB settings area.
-RGB Settings-
Colors on screens are created using the three
basic light colors: Red, Green, and Blue. This
concept should not be new to you if you have any
experience with computer programs such as Adobe
Photoshop.
In FPD, each of the Individual Shade Boxes are
controlled by values of 0 to 31 for each of the
three light colors (RGB). Use d-pad up/down to
move between Red, Green, and Blue.
Press d-pad LEFT to decrease the value.
Press d-pad RIGHT to increase the value.
-When finished-
A Button: Done (Exit the RGB settings area and
keep your changes)
B Button: Cancel (Revert to the RGB settings
before your changes)
When you are finished with the entire color section, press the B
button to return to the Appearance menu.

Many of the theme music tracks in FPD are based on actual
theme songs used by real wrestlers. While every theme is
assigned to more than one wrestler in FPD (since there are
hundreds of wrestlers and only 28 theme tracks), there is
usually one particular song that each track was really
based on, and others whose themes sound somewhat similar
are also assigned that same track in this game.
Ex. number 13 is clearly based on The Great Sasuke's real
theme song. While Jun Akiyama also uses it in the game,
it is still really Sasuke's FPD theme, and is therefore
listed as being Sasuke's.
The ones marked GENERIC are not really close enough to any
single person's theme to be considered their's.

Regarding Total Points in Edit Mode
By default, you are only allowed a total of up to 150 points
for use with the Skill Edit and Parameter screens in Edit
mode. The bottom of both screens will display your current
total used and total allowed. You may earn additional points
in Victory Road mode.
When creating pro wrestlers, keep their status in mind. Main
Eventers' total point count should be much higher than
undercarders. It should reflect their likelihood of winning
(ie. how matches are likely to be booked) for worked matches,
rather than in-ring ability. Although in the cases of some
organizations, wrestlers' status happens to reflect their
actual in-ring ability, but the status is the primary concern
when assigning these points.
Most pre-made undercarders are assigned a total of around 100
to 120 points, it's recommended that you stay consistent with
that range when making undercard wrestlers. Similarly, shoot
fighters' points should also be logically assigned.

**Skill Equipment (Moves)

Personality Traits
Everytime I am Particular (Entertainment)
The first entry is particular about the development
of the match. When the percentage is high, the
wrestler is clumsy. For example, more likely to
cause an opponent to fall out of the ring. When it
is low, he's reliable.
Serious Time (Discretion)
When the percentage is higher, the wrestler's
tactics are purely for the purpose of winning.
For example, often drags an opponent to the middle
of the ring when they're down near the ropes to
avoid a rope break. When it's low, tactics are
more aimed at entertaining than winning.
Flexibility
This percentage sets his adaptability to the
opponent's style.
Cooperation
Used for Tag Matches, when this percentage is set
higher, more likely to do Double Team moves and
work with a partner.
<>High
<>Low
Other Tendencies
Outside Return Count
How long the wrestler will stay outside the ring
before going back in.
<>Fast
<>Slow
Touchwork
How long before the wrestler will tag a partner
in during a tag match (based on the amount of
damage taken.)
<>Fast
<>Slow
Weapons
How likely the wrestler will get and use weapons.
<>Use Weapon
<>Don't Use Weapon

and organizations to their real names. The column on the left lists all
of the organizations while the column on the right lists the wrestlers
in the one that's currently highlighted.
Use d-pad left/right to switch between the two lists. Press A to choose

saved in the Group Edit will be listed.

To "delete" a wrestler (one that you may have replaced with a more
updated version using Wrestler Edit or simply want to get rid of),
highlight their name on the left column, press A to choose them, and
then scroll to the bottom of the organizations list to the right and
you will find the option to hide the wrestler. They will not show up
in the wrestler selection screen if this is chosen for them.

Press B to exit this mode.

Save (See "Data Management" for next screen)
Mode Select (Exit)

NOTE: Fire Pro D loads data automatically on boot, so there's no need
to use the Load function every time you play it.


Data Management Screens
=======================

You will come across this screen if you choose Load or Save under the
Memory Card mode. You will also encounter it whenever you exit a game
mode if the "Save Confirmation" setting under Option mode is ON (it is
ON by default.)

1. Auto Update Load/Save
If you are just updating your data (ie. this isn't the first time
you're saving any of the files below) you can simply use this
function. For loading, it simply loads all FPD data in every
available cards (which is also done in the game's boot sequence).

FPD Data is organized into separate files on your VMU/VMS card:

1st column (File) 2nd Column 3rd Column Filename Used
----------------- ---------- ---------- -------- ----
2. System Data [status] [card] FIREPROD.SYS (36blocks)
3. Rename Data [status] [card] FIREPROD.REN (27blocks)
4. ReCostume Data [status] [card] FIREPROD.REC (21blocks)
5. Edit Group Data 1 [status] [card] FIREPROD.P01 (26blocks)
6. Edit Group Data 2 [status] [card] FIREPROD.P02 (26blocks)
7. Edit Group Data 3 [status] [card] FIREPROD.P03 (26blocks)
8. Edit Group Data 4 [status] [card] FIREPROD.P04 (26blocks)
9. Edit Group Data 5 [status] [card] FIREPROD.P05 (26blocks)
10. Expansion Edit 1 [status] [card] FIREPROD.E01 (64blocks)
11. Expansion Edit 2 [status] [card] FIREPROD.E02 (64blocks)
12. Expansion Edit 3 [status] [card] FIREPROD.E03 (64blocks)
13. Expansion Edit 4 [status] [card] FIREPROD.E04 (64blocks)
(these last two columns
are not actually shown
on-screen; included for
your information)

Unused files will appear grey.

Add-on wrestlers from Spike are just normal edits distributed as
Expansion Edit files (64 blocks each).

Add-on moves from Spike will not be listed on this screen, but they
are also stored as separate files on your card. Their size varies,
but are generally small, and their filename extension is W followed
by two numbers. For example, the first two add-on moves they released
were the following files:
Filename Used
-------- ----
FIREPROD.W00 (6 blocks)
FIREPROD.W02 (4 blocks)

First Time Saving
Files modified for the first time are shown in YELLOW.
When any of the files is modified for the first time, you will need
to choose a card for it to be saved to and loaded from. For example,
if you chose the first slot on controller 1 for Rename Data, "A-1"
will appear as Rename Data's card on the far right column. You will
not be allowed to use the Auto Update function at the top if any of
the files is modified for the first time, because you haven't chosen
a slot for it yet.
When none of the files are modified for the first time, but you would
like to save one of the files on a different card, you may choose a
card again using the same procedure.
Use d-pad up/down to highlight a slot and press B to save to it.

NOTE: The game is said to REQUIRE only 36 blocks because the system
file is technically the only file that's really necessary. It
stores your options, Victory Road progress, Belt Edit Data,
the first 16 Edit Wrestler slots, records, etc. The other files
are considered additions, but realistically, most Fire Pro fans
will make use of most of them as well.


---------------------
14. OTHER INFORMATION
---------------------

Default Referees List
Eight pre-made referees are available by default at the Match
Configuration screens.

Real Name On-Screen (Fake) Name
--------- ---------------------
1. Tiger Hattori (NJPW) Panther Tattori
2. Kyohei Wada (AJPW) Kouhei Saga
3. Ted Tanabe (MPro) Batt Watanabe
4. Yuuji Shimada (PRIDE) Shuuji Imada
5. Earl Hebner (WWF) Luck Kesler
6. Daichi Murayama (ARSION) Ooki Kugayama
7. Mr.Soranaka (Old UWF) Mr.Mitzunaka
8. Joe Higuchi (NOAH) JOE Hiroshi
NOTE: Higuchi now works for NOAH, but he only works backstage,
not as an active referee. Since none of NOAH's currently active
referees are in the game, he is used as a substitute, which is
why you may have noticed that he is used for all NOAH matches
in the Victory Road mode. Technically, this is his AJPW self.

Any referees made in the Referee Edit mode will appear after the
defaults.

Clean Pause Screen
When the game is paused, press X + Y simultaneously to remove the
pause menu. This will allow you to get a clean freeze-frame, which is
extremely useful for taking better screenshots.

Player Records
You can keep player records that correspond to the win/loss history
of a position (ie. 1P, 2P, etc).
To enter the player records screen, press A when highlighting the
Blue Corner or Red Corner option, which can be found at the top of
most Match Configuration screens. A player must be currently chosen
for that corner, you cannot keep records for CP. The following menu
will appear:
1. Change Records
2. View Records
3. New Records
4. Delete Records
5. Configure (Back to Previous Screen)
Use New Records if it is the first time you are using this feature.
You can then enter your name/initials, and choose a slot to save your
player records.

Random Select
At the Wrestler Select screen, press the START button to let the
computer make a random suggestion for you. Unlike the Random Select
feature in many fighting games, this only highlights the wrestler
without actually selecting them yet, so you are free to choose
someone else or use Random Select again.

CHEAT CODE - Unlock 300 Edit Points (Without Victory Road)
Normally, you can unlock up to 300 edit points for use with Wrestler
Edit mode by simply completing all of Victory Road. However,
Dreamcast Magazine (the Japanese publication) has revealed a simple
code to do so: At the Mode Select (Main Menu) screen, highlight the
Edit mode and press L Trigger + R Trigger + Y Button simultaneously.
This combination must be pressed together, holding L and R and then
pressing Y will not work. If done right, you will hear a tone.
