  • All five of the girls in photo gallery

    During story mode, each time you have the choice to fight a new girl, choose the new girl instead of your fighter's girlfriend.

  • Blazin moves

    Every character has two Blazin moves. To perform their second Blazin move, move to the back side of your opponent, grapple, and move the Right analog-stick. Sometimes this is more effective then their regular Blazin. For example, DMX's Blazin from behind the opponent is where he breaks their arms and snaps their neck. To do any of the characters' special moves, while you are in Blazin mode, grapple your opponent and move Right Analog-stick Up or Right Analog-stick Down. They all have two finishing moves (grappled from the front or grappled from the back).

  • Easy knock out

    Find your most powerful move and use that a couple times, followed by a couple different moves, then your most powerful move, and repeat until your opponent is in danger. Get a Blazin, then use it against your opponent for a easy knock out.

  • Easy submission

    Grapple an opponent then keep on getting them in submissions. When their head, leg, or arm health runs out, you will automatically win.

  • Avoid losing

    When your opponent has Blazin, or if your fighter is completely out of health, to avoid being knocked out or pinned, get out of the ring quickly and run around until his Blazin is gone or you have enough health to live on. Note: When you are running around, your opponent's momentum also decreases.

  • Skills

    In story mode, before you go up against a challenging opponent, fight many battles in battle mode to earn money for better player attributes. This is very helpful when going up against Snowman, Pockets, and House.

    If you already have an I.D. name, choose battle or survival mode at the main menu. Select your I.D. name and pick a fighter. When you win, you will get money. Then, go to story mode and pick your I.D. name. Select the button to put your stats up, and the money you won from the battle will be there. Do this enough and you will have full stats at the beginning of your story mode.

    Go to one player and collect money. Then go to another person and collect that money and use it on another person.

  • Defeating D Mob

    The easiest way to defeat himis by submission. Throw him against the ropes and walk slowly to him. As he bounces back, get him in a head hold. It takes about eight attempts of these to make D Mob submit. After his head health meter is empty, you must repeat the tactic two more times.

  • Defeating Pockets, House, and Snowman

    When you fight Pockets, House, and Snowman, beat on one of them. Then, run away and work on one opponent at a time. When one of them is in danger, use your Blazin against him and you will automatically K.O. that person and win the match. Remember, keep running.
