Street Fighter Zero's secrets
?? Secrets in SFZ ??
There are 3 characters that will sometimes appear to you as bosses if you play a versus computer
game: M.Bison will appear as last boss for some character, and Akuma and Dan
will eventually challenge you between two normal fights.
These characters are playable via codes. All of them require you do 2 things before entering
the code for the specific character:
1- When you enter the game, do not release the start button untill the end of the code.
2- Put the cursor on your side's random select box (the "?" box): left for 1P and right for 2P.
Then you must enter the specific code for the character you want to play (must be entered at a
- For Akuma, enter D D D L L L and light+heavy punch
(l+h kick will give alternate color).
- For M.Bison, enter D D L L D L L and light+heavy punch
(l+h kick will give alternate color).
NB: D does of course stand for down, but L means left for 1P. If you play on 2P side, it must be
remplaced with Right.
- For Dan, enter (quite quickly: less then ~1.5 sec)
either "Light P, Light K, Medium K, Heavy K, Heavy P, Medium P"
either "Heavy P, Heavy K, Medium K, Light K, Light P, Medium P" (alternate color).
As a reference to the final scene of the anime (the animated movie), there is a way to play
Ryu and Ken versus a computer controlled Bison.
"Random selecting" your character can acasionaly get you Akuma or Bison, but it should not
When continuing a game, the secret character will still be on the screen, so you don't need to
re-enter the code.
If you continue a game that had been played with a random selected character (secret or not),
you have to de-select it by getting out of the random select box before entering
To do this, you must begin a new game. This means you have to begin with both players.
So you will be using two credits to inidiate the game. The code:
Things to do on both sides (1P and 2P), and supposedly vaguely at the same rate:
1- Hold start when you enter the game.
2- Go up twice.
3- Release start.
4- Go up twice.
Now on 1P side (Ryu), press Light Punch, and on 2P side (Ken), press Heavy Punch.
The game will begin as normal, but just before the "round 1" anouncement, the "Here comes a new
challenger" screen will appear, and Bison will come to ask you to join him. Off course, you
refuse and he decides to eliminate you. Good luck!
A bit of strategy:
If you loose, you loose both of your credits, but if you win you do the Ryu vs Ken fight as
normal, so you don't loose any.
If you loose and want to continue the VS Bison game, you just need to continue on both sides,
and select your characters with Light Punch for Ryu and Heavy Punch for Ken.
You only have one lifebar and one super combo gauge for both players, so the lifebar will go
down and the gauge will fill quicker than in normal games.
Of course, Bison can't block on both sides. Try getting him in a "sandwich trap", and combo him
as much as you can. But be quick, or he will teleport out of the trap.
Another way to get big dammage is to have Ryu fireballing from the edge of the screen and Ken
comboing in close range combat.
Use super combos often; your gauge fills at incredible rate. Don't waste time trying to get
level 3 SCs to connect or you will waste the potential SCs for the time you keep the gauge
blocked at level 3, and you might waste the whole bar if you miss. Against Bison, such mistake
is lethal. So just get every level 1 you can.
Beware the Psycho Crusher; it does horrible damage, particularly if Ryu and Ken take it.
Last thing: try comboing multiple SCs together, like a Shinkuu TatsuMaki (Ryu) and a ShinRyuKen
(Ken). The effect is guarantied.
This type of game opens a lot of new strategies and is very much fun. Definitly a very good idea
from capcom who is, as always, a step before everybody alse... I really hope there are other
possible matchs in 2 vs 1, even if without a teleport the computer will have enormous problems
beating 2 players...
By pressing different buttons when you win a fight, you will make your character say one
specific ending quote (nice or not...). They are different each time, so please check the FAQ
to know them.
In Europe and the US it's not very usefull, but in Japan where you often don't see your oponent,
it can be used to express what you thought of the match... or just to upset him! ^-^
