50 years ago, a mysterious weapon constructed from an unknown material was discovered in
the remains of an ancient German castle.
The weapon came to be known as EHRGEIZ™. It was presented to the winner of a tournament
that determined the world’s greatest fighter. In time, it became the name and symbol of the
tournament itself.
In the Middle East, under the command of a particular organization, an excavation site was
constructed to explore the ancient ruins believed to hold the secret of immortality. However, the
key to the final door of the ruins could not be found. Now, a legend has surfaced among the
people, hinting that the mysterious stone embedded within EHRGEIZ may be the key to this door.
The ambitious, hoping to finally unveil the mystery of the ancient ruins, are now set on obtaining
EHRGEIZ in the championship tournament.
Anticipation rises as the aircraft informing the public about The EHRGEIZ Championship
Tournament flies around the world. The exhilaration of the participants slowly begins to pulse
through the air.

The goal of each character is to fight and win battles against
opponents that continue to appear through successive stages of battle.
Freely use conventional fighting techniques and Special Attacks to
weaken the opponent and win. The character who depletes the other’s
Physical Strength gauge completely, or the character whose Physical
Strength gauge remains greater than the other when the Time Limit
reaches zero, will receive one set point. If the Physical Strength gauge
of each character becomes empty simultaneously or if at the Time Limit, the Physical Strength of
the two characters is equal to one another, the situation is deemed a tie and both parties will
receive one set point. The first character to win two set points is the victor.
This mode allows the character to fight against computer controlled opponents. A second player
may choose to join in at any time by pressing the START button of the second Controller. The player
who wins the match will be able to continue to fight in the Arcade Mode. Players may pause the
game at any time by pressing the START button. An option to EXIT and return immediately to the
main EHRGEIZ menu will be available when the game is paused.

Displays the character’s Physical Strength. The gauge
on the left represents Player One’s Physical Strength,
and the gauge on the right represents Player Two’s
Physical Strength. The gauge will decrease as
characters receive damage from an attack. A character
is considered knocked out when their gauge depletes.
3. Special Attack Gauge (Red Bar)
Displays the remaining amount of energy that can be used to perform Special Attacks. The gauge
on the left is for Player One, and the gauge on the right is for Player Two. Each time a Special
Attack is used, or an Interrupt is performed, the gauge will decrease. When the gauge is depleted,
Special Attacks and Interrupts can no longer be performed.
4. Acquired Set Points
Displays the number of set points acquired for the current match.
This mode allows two players to fight against each other. On the selection screen, by using the
directional buttons, each player can select a character to be played. After character selection, the
players will be able to choose the battle stage and handicap level to be played. Upon this final
selection, the battle will start.
Practice allows players to familiarize themselves with their character of choice by
letting them fight with an unlimited amount of time and Physical Strength. To begin,
the player must choose their character and the character that they want to practice

In EHRGEIZ, regardless of where the opponent is, each character can move freely in 360 degrees
using the directional buttons.
Run (ñ in any direction)
When executed, the character will run in the direction that the directional button is pressed.
The character is defenseless while running, but will be able to move quickly.
Walk (ñ in any direction while pressing the R1 or R2 button)
When executed, the character will move slowly while facing the direction of the opponent. While
walking, the character will be able to Guard while in an upright position. Walking slowly towards
the opponent is a basic part of the game.
Evade (press R1 or R2 while holding down the diectional button)
This allows characters to move by rotating the body. During this time, the character’s body
becomes half-transparent, and will be able to evade Special Attacks.
Crouch (hold down either the R1 or R2 button)
This allows the character to lower their gravitational balance and avoid the opponent’s High
Attacks. This movement also incorporates Guarding against Low Attacks.
Roll (˜˜ while holding down either the R1 or R2 button)
This allows the character to roll in the direction entered with the directional
buttons. If an attack button is pressed while rolling, the character will be able to
attack once the roll is completed.
Note: Rolling does not work with the Analog Joystick.
Jump (˜˜ or G + S or the L1 or L2 button)
This allows the character to jump in the direction entered with the directional
buttons. The longer the directional button is held down, the higher the jump. If an attack button is
pressed while jumping, the character will perform a Jump Attack.
Note: While using the Analog Joystick, characters cannot use the directional buttons to jump.
Step (˜ while holding down the R1 or R2 button)
This allows the character to step lightly while Crouching in the direction entered with the
directional buttons. The character will be able to perform characteristic attacks in this manner.
Note: Stepping distance varies between the directional buttons and the Analog Joystick.
Attacks listed here can be used by any of the characters.
This attack is performed by pressing the √ or ç button. This attack aims towards the upper part
of the opponent’s body. Characters will be able to avoid this attack by Crouching or by Guarding in
an upright position.
By combining these functions with the directional buttons, the player will be able to perform various
attack techniques. Displayed below are some examples:
This attack may be initiated by pressing the √ or ç button and the ≈ button at the same time.
Other attacks may be initiated by pressing combinations of the √ or ç button. This attack aims for
the mid-section of the opponent’s body. Characters will be able to avoid this attack by Guarding in
an upright position.
This attack may be performed by pressing the ≈ button. This attack aims for the lower part of the
opponent’s body. Characters will be able to avoid this attack by Guarding.
By pressing the Ω button, each character will perform an individual Special Attack. Guarding has no
effect against Special Attacks, but it is still possible to evade certain Special Attacks.
To defend against High and Mid Attacks, the character can automatically block by standing upright
and facing the opponent. For Low Attacks, the character will be able to defend by using the
Crouching Guard. However, the character cannot Guard against Special Attacks. Guarding is also not
effective against attacks when the opponent’s body glows red. Since Guarding is not possible in
these cases, try to evade the attack. There will also be times when the character’s body will glow
blue. This is to signal that the character’s back is facing the opponent. Characters in this position
will not be able to defend themselves.
If a character performs a Special Attack at the same time as the opponent, the character will
perform a Guard and automatically counterattack. This also applies when standing on the ground
and receiving the opponent’s attack. Certain attacks may not be interrupted.
It is possible to perform a special technique while pressing buttons at a specific time during an
attack. When these commands have been executed successfully, the point of contact is surrounded
in a burst of blue energy and a “J” will show up on the technique list. The timing is different for
each technique, so it is best to try various timings.
Strong Upper Attack: G + H
Strong Lower Attack: G + L
Running Attack: H or L attack while running
Walking Attack: H or L attack while walking
Jump Attack: H or L attack while jumping
Body Press: H + L attack when standing in a position above the opponent
Blade Catch: G while matching opponent’s sword attack
Triangle Jump: H while running towards a wall
Ultimate Special Attack: Hold down S until executed
Grasping Attack: G + H + L
When holding down G + H + L, the character extends a hand to grab the opponent.
(This will also occur when the H + L combination is performed while a Guard(G) is being executed).
If a successful grab is executed, the following types of moves are possible:
Attack From Grasping
• Throw: No moves are necessary after a successful grab is executed
• Strike Attacks: H or L repeatedly (up to 3 hits are possible)
• Rope Throw: Press directional button in the direction of the ropes
Hold Break
Hold Breaks can be performed to Interrupt an opponent’s Throw or Rope Throw. When grabbed
by the opponent, Guarding at a certain time will enable the player to slip though the attempted
throw. For Strike Attacks, an Interrupt can be performed if a Special Attack is executed at a
certain time.
Special Throw
Press all directional buttons in a circular manner or rotate the Analog Joystick once, then G + H + L.
This move instantly grabs the opponent and executes a powerful throw. Unless the character is in
close proximity to the opponent, the opponent cannot be thrown. If a Guard is executed when the
throwing character is glowing white, the opponent may be able to escape the attack.
Tackle: G + H + L while running
This move quickly tackles and throws the opponent. Unless the character is in close proximity to
the opponent, the opponent cannot be thrown. If a Guard is executed when the throwing character
is glowing white, the opponent may be able to escape the attack.
If a successful tackle is executed, the following types of attacks are possible:
• Strike Attack: H or L repeatedly (up to 3 hits are possible)
• Throw: No moves are necessary after a successful tackle is executed
Boxes are strategically positioned throughout certain stages. Boxes can be pushed or climbed
upon. Pushing the box at the opponent is possible by stepping close to the box and executing a
move consisting of the G + H + L combination. Items and weapons may appear when a box is
destroyed. Use these items to an advantage.
If blown back by an attack, Guarding in a timely manner before falling
to the ground will enable the character to recover or avoid down time.
This will also work if attacked in the air.
In order to avoid the opponent’s additional attacks after being knocked
down, try to rise up as quickly as possible. If the character remains in the down position for a
certain amount of time, it will automatically rise.
If the player’s character is knocked down, the following movements are possible:
Rise in position
Jump Rise
Rise, Lower Attack
Rise, Mid Attack
Head Spring
Rotational Kick

H + L when the opponent is near the character’s head

Four Mini Games have been included in this game. Select one from the main menu.
Note: The controls for the Infinity Battle and Battle Runner are basically the same as for EHRGEIZ.
Select the Controller mode preferred at the time of character selection. Keep in mind that settings
such as key configuration are set according to each Mini Game.
This particular game is geared toward the individual player, and involves defeating all
opponents that appear in the character’s path. When the character’s Physical
Strength gauge is depleted, the game is over. When an opponent is defeated, the
character’s Physical Strength is replenished. (The amount of Physical Strength
replenished depends on the speed in which the opponent is defeated). When the
Physical Strength gauge becomes full, it is stocked in a heart shaped gauge. If the
opponent is defeated without the character receiving any damage, the number of
hearts increases (maximum of 8). Aim for the highest score by defeating as many
opponents as possible.
This is a Mini Game which consists of running around a circuit type field. In order to
win, the player must run around the regulation course faster than their opponent.
After selecting a character, the player must select their course. (When playing against
the CPU, there will not be an option to select a course). The Physical Strength gauge
for each character will increase and decrease according to the amount of damage
inflicted or received. If an opponent receives damage from the character’s attack, the
character’s Physical Strength increases, as well as their running speed. (Running
speed also changes according to the surroundings). Attacking an opponent is one method of
disrupting their course. In addition, there are items that enable the character who collects them to
take the upper hand throughout the course. Strategic use of these items is the key to winning.
Course changes direction
Physical Strength gauges interchange
The Special Attack gauge recovers
Status change is dependent upon the item collected.
Set on a beach in mid summer, these battles consist of rapid button pressing. First, there is the
“Battle Dash” which consists of running through a short course and competing to see who can
reach the goal the fastest. Another type of race, “Battle Flag” is a competition involving dashing
and sliding along sand hills with the hopes of obtaining the flag. Lastly, “Battle Hurdle” consists of
dodging obstacles while trying to finish in first place. Compete to
receive a higher score than the opponent in all three events. The
gauge displayed at the top of the screen shows running speed. Hit the
Run buttons repeatedly. Press the Action buttons in a timely manner
and aim for the best record.
While The EHRGEIZ Championship Tournament is being held, an archaeologist by the name of Koji Masuda is
making his way towards the ancient ruins which have been said to hold the secret to immortality. There, Koji
finds a sealed staircase. Curiosity gets the best of him as he deciphers and unlocks the seal. Destiny awaits
him. This new world is best described as a foreign dimension with remnants of ancient memories. In search of
the spring of eternal life, Koji is drawn through the dungeon.

The Battle Panel mini game consists of two teams (red & blue) competing to occupy the 8x8 field
with panels of their respective color. After selecting a character, select the field and begin the
game. (When battling against the CPU, the field selection option will not be available). The player
will be able to change the color of an opponent’s panel to their color by bracketing them between
blocks of the player’s own color. The game is over when neither team can place any more panels.
At this point, the party with the most panels representing their color
is the winner. Throughout the game, neutral panels will appear from
time to time. These neutral panels can also be bracketed and
converted to the player’s color. To keep an opponent’s character from
taking over panels, try attacking them to knock them away.

eventually break down if continually used. The Blacksmith can repair armor and

on eating habits and will affect the character’s rate of increase in each of the
character’s abilities at Level UP periods.
1. Level - Represents the current level of the character. Once a certain amount of Experience Points are obtained,
the character’s level will increase.
2. Experience Points - Represents the total number of Experience Points obtained.
3. Maximum HP - Represents the character’s maximum amount of Physical Strength.
4. Attack - Represents the character’s Physical Attack power. Equipped weapons will raise attack power.
5. Defense - Represents resistance to physical attacks. Higher numbers indicate stronger resistance.
6. Magic Attack - Represents the character’s Magic Attack power using equipped Materia.
7. Magic Defense - Represents the character’s resistance to Magic Attacks. Higher numbers indicate greater resistance.

9. Speed - Represents the amount of time it takes for a character to recover from an attack.
10. Consumption Rate - Represents the rate at which the character becomes hungry. The higher the number, the longer
the character will last without becoming hungry.
11. EXP Gain Rate - Represents the amount of Experience Points the character will receive when an enemy is defeated.
Grocery Shop - The Grocery Shop sells food items that are necessary for survival.
Hotel - At the hotel, the player will be able to do the following:
The Front Desk: The player can deposit money here.
Guest Rooms: While one character is being used, the other character will wait in
the Hotel’s guest room. To use the second character, simply talk to him or her, and
the characters will change.
Restaurant: There is a talkative sommelier in the Restaurant. In order to gain
useful information about the quest, make it a habit to talk to and exchange
information with him.
To proceed in the quest, the player must defeat the various monsters their character will encounter in the dungeon by
using weapons, items and magic. Upon defeat, a monster may drop an item or money. Items can be used right away
or kept in inventory until needed. Money can be taken back to the Village where it can be spent on chosen items or
deposited in the bank.
About Physical Attacks
Characters can be equipped with a variety of weapons with which to battle the monsters they encounter. Once
equipped with a weapon, the player can press the Physical Attack button repeatedly for consecutive attacks and
hold down then release the button for Special Attacks.
About Magic Attacks
Equipping a character with Materia will grant them the ability to use Magic Stones. The magical effect of the
equipped Materia will be triggered when Magic Stones are consumed. Select whether the character would like to
use Materia as Basic Magic or as Ultra Magic. Press the Magic Attack button once for Basic Magic, and hold
down then release the button for Ultra Magic.
About Items
Each character has a maximum of 30 slots in their inventory to carry items. Money possessed by a character
also takes up space in the inventory at the rate of 100G per slot. Magic Stones are carried at the rate of 50 per
slot. Up to four items can be stored in a satchel for quick access. Even if a monster were to suddenly appear,
characters will be able to select an item from the satchel using the L2 and R2 buttons, and use it by pressing the
ç button. Certain types of items cannot be carried in the satchel. Excess items can be stored at a nearby Hotel
in the Village.
Escape From The Dungeon
By using “Dragon Wing”, the player can create an escape route to allow them to return to the Village. The escape
route remains open until the dungeon is reentered, so returning to the same location will not be a problem.
Regardless of whether the character is inside or outside the dungeon, it is possible to save gameplay at any
time. On the Status Screen, select “Save Game” using the SELECT button to save game status. Ending a game
will not cost the character anything, but saving a game will cost money.
For the QUEST Mode, it is not possible to load a saved game from the MEMORY CARD heading of the Main
Menu. Saved game data can only be loaded by entering the QUEST Mode.
Game Over
When a character’s HP reaches zero, the character will collapse. At this time, the other character which the player
is not using (Clair, when using Koji and vice versa) must rescue their partner by picking up a box containing their
spirit at the location where he/she had collapsed. Since Koji and Clair’s status are unrelated, it is necessary to
raise their levels individually. If a character dies before rescuing their partner, the game will end.
