Various Cheats and Hints
Alternate Opening ScreenTo gain a different START screen simply complete every mission available in Weapon Master mode, including the secondary missions unlocked after initial completion. The announcer's voice will also change.
Complete the eastern mission of Chapter 3 in Weapon Master mode. The last stage will pit you against Cervantes. Defeating him allows you to play him in all modes.
Unlock Characters in Weapon Master Mode (Import)
Play through Weapon Master mode to unlock characters, modes and stages. As you beat a character in Weapon Master Mode, that character will be unlocked for use in other modes. Unlockable characters include:
Some of the stages that can be unlocked in weapon master mode have alternates. To choose an alternate, highlight the desired stage and press Right or Left. Not all stages have alternates, and some have more than one.
Change character profile view
Select any character in character profiles. Once you are in his or her profile menu, tap L or R to have the character turn around. Note: Keep tapping to have him or her move in a complete 360.
When you are in a dungeon and do not regain full health back after a battle, just go to the first square in it and fight there. You will start at full health again.
Higher ranking titles
Rankings are based on experience in edge master mode. A good level to earn fast experience is Er Rai. It is in extra chapter 2 (Cepheus). For example, 500,000 experience earns you level 77, Grand Edgemaster Of The Basilisk.
Defeating Voldo in weapon master mode
The first time you meet Voldo in weapon master mode you must hit him twenty times in twenty seconds. Do a ring out; even if you only have hit him less than nineteen times, you will pass.
Raphael: Easy wins
As soon as the match starts hold the right side of the "over right button" on the controller and press (Y) repeatedly. Raphael will do quick strikes with his sword repeatedly. Keep doing this, even if it is blocked (it may pierce through). During weapon master mode, make enough money and buy as many weapons for Raphael as possible. You will probably get a high offense low defense or something of that sort. If you can, get one that can pierce defenses easier. With your hits being mostly piercing, you will hit your opponent almost every time.
When close to the edge, grab your opponent. He should be knocked off if you use the grab where he hits them multiple times with his sword.
Seung Mina: Health gain
Select Seung Mina and equip her ultimate weapon, the Hraesvelgr. While in battle, you can regain lots of health quickly with this weapon if you do her spinning staff attack. Whether it hits the opponent or not, you will gain health. Note: If you are not attacking, the weapon will drain your health, so be careful.
Hold (Back) and press (Black) to do a fireball; or hold (Back) and press (Black), (White) to do a green fireball that can push people back when against the edge.
Taki: Strong kick combo
When you get hit first, press (L) + (R) + [Up] + (Kick) together in any position. You will do a kick combo. Note: You have to get close to your opponent.
Voldo: Easy weapon master mode
Use Voldo to complete weapon master mode by running at the opponent, then press (Y) and continue this for an easy ring out. This will cut the time to completing weapon master mode in half.
Yoshimitsu: Easy wins
Use either of his frontal throws and constantly use them until the enemy is defeated. This is especially useful for the subchapter dungeon with all of the Berzerker enemies, as most of them are at half health.
Get near the opponent then press [Down], (A) + (K).
One person demos
If you wait at the title screen, a demo fight will play. After that, rankings of players will appear on screen. Finally it will announce the word "Namco" and a random character will appear. They will do fight/dance demonstrations that range from Raphael's Spanish Flamingo to a spine twisting performance from Voldo. Some are shorter than others, and sometimes instead of showing the single character demos, the opening will repeat itself. Keep trying, and it will eventually appear.
Unlock Seung Mina
In chapter 6 of weapon master mode, a palace icon will be in the middle. Fight Seung Mina there, win, and unlock the Korean princess for play in all modes.
