    WOOOOOOOO...... HA-CHOO!




    KIM DRAGON!!


    Of the original WH cast arguably the most unique character of the bunch as he was the first of his kind in what would become quite a line of imitations.

    I remember the first time I saw his Dragon Kick in '92... I was in sheer awe at the beauty of the move.

    Yes... Yes it does.

    I just want to verify to everybody who hasn't had a chance to play it, that Hanzo and Fuuma are indeed great in NGBC. Fuuma is one of my regular characters.

    LETS GET THIS SHOW BACK ON THE ROAD!

    Wow, it's been over 5 months, but I finally want to properly end this by uploading and presenting the rest of the videos.

    What better to mark the return of this topic but by appointing, one, HANZOU!

    Ryu clone? Sure, but I always preferred Hanzou to Ryu. Ryu can't fucking teleport can he? Haha. I remember as a kid I used to fantasize about a WH vs. SF game, and how kick ass that would be. Mudman vs. Blanka, Zangief vs. Muscle Power, etc.

    Something I could never get though, is why ADK altered all the original character name to hide the fact they were supposed to be historical characters take from NeoGeesus and others to match up in a 'whole world history' hero contest.

    The original Japanese version calls 'Jeanne' as 'Jeanne d'Arc', or 'J. Karn' as 'Gengis Khan', stuff like that.

    Talk again about nonsense in localization, I guess.

    This is one of the best threads I have gone through in a long time.

    It is good to see some love for the WH series. I still enjoy it regularly.

    SHURA!

    "shur"a. Haha sorry that was terrible. ahem

    dunno the name. it escapes me but that one infamous fighting game expert company did the tape. Shou-something? Every 2D fighter freak knows them.

    As for how I got it, Neo Bomberman sent me a copy back in 2001 or so



    Ah Shura. In World Heroes 2 Shura had this cool special move called Twirl Kick. Sadly ADK removed this nifty looking special anti-air move in later sequels, but much like J. Max's lost Phantom Pigskin Projectiles (oh you like that alliteration don't cha!), ADK gave longtime WH fanatics a special treat -- Twirl Kick makes a special return in WHP, and much like J. Max, it only comes at the very end of the HERO-desperation move. Check out his combos Shura has some lethal moves up his sleeve, er arm band!

    1 thing that I'll never figure out. Shura is a Muay Thai fighter and should be pretty fleet of foot, no? Why he's slow as a turtle I'll never know. His low and slow jumps KILL ME!

    Other than that, a fun character to mess 'round with.

    ZEUS!

    Thanks Tron.



    Making his dramatic debut in WH2Jet, Zeus comes back for seconds in Perfect. The cheapest fighter ever due to his 100% damage Megaton Punch. Unbelievably cheap. See the video if you don't believe me.

    He's OK. I rarely use him, he has a lack of combo potential and he is kind of bland.... fighting him is no fun either. (unless you use the shrink code in the Saturn version... then things get interesting when your fighter goes up to his shin guards lol)

    RYOKO!

    My friends we are nearing the finish line. I do have some special treats left that are pretty cool, but character wise we are down to two. Here's Ryoko... AND THEN THERE WAS ONE!



    Ryoko that little rascal teenage Hanzou-is-a-hottie-adoring punk, lol. I never really really liked using her, but she has her moments. Her 'Mugger Throw' HERO Desperation move is pretty cool. Fighting fanatics know Fighter's History also had a Judo throwing female fighter that looked just like WH2's Ryoko, and she had the same name too! Both were based off the Ryoko of real life.

    Remember Muscle Power kicking Ryoko's butt?

    Well, what kind of evil man would I be if I didn't allow her to extract her own measure of revenge hmm?

    BROCKEN!



    Brocken closes it out! (as far as fighter combo vid's are concerned, I do have extra special's to share and finish this topic with, that will come later)

    What to say about silly ole Brock...




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8G6O2ySxp4


    Ahhh Brocken. I have a personal fondness for this cat, not only was he the first World Hero I ever selected, but he's a freaking super robot! It's like ADK combined M. Bison with Dhalsim. I have fond memories on the SNES World Heroes port -- just killing off my opponents with Brocken's flying attack in the death match... not only do I beat them with this move but it also sends Brocken flying in the spikes/flaming ropes/electric ropes. Haha, yes I was an evil kid.

    I decided to finish off all the WH characters with this upload tonight (6/16/06) and there's another special reason why. Yesterday was my cousin's 18th Birthday. I love him and to me he's like the little bro I never had. So anyway I visited him today and we got talking about the good ole days where I used to beat him in Street Fighter II Turbo all the time with Sagat. He never could outmanuever my low and high tiger fireballs. Keep in mind the kid was only 9 years old or so when we played (circa 1997).

    'You were such a sore loser back then,' I told him yesterday, laughing.

    'Yeah...'

    And then he said something that even *I* (the master of unlock -- I mean, the master of remembering every last silly detail) was shocked to hear.

    'Hey you remember when I figured out to do that robot guy's flying attack?'

    It totally caught me off guard. 'Ah yes. World Heroes 2 -- that wannabe Street Fighter game right.'

    He nodded.

    And I just smiled. I remember we were playing WH2 and I was mad because I didn't know how to do Brocken's flying attack. In the original it was jump + forward + punch.

    My cousin randomly figured out it was jump + forward + punch + kick to fly across the screen.

    Awesomeness.

    Brocken rules, and so does my little cousin. Happy Birthday coz!
