SURVIVAL MODE CHEAT
NOTE: This particular cheat is performed at your own risk
In order to build up your character during Survival mode, start a game and wait until the level has loaded and the fight has started. Then, press the eject button on your PS2 system. The tray will slide out, but the fight will continue. Once you have knocked out your opponent you can continue to beat him/her mercilessly, since the system will not be able to load the next opponent while the drive is open. During this time, any successful performance of your aerial attack (Up + Punch + Kick) will earn you a bonus item. Continue to do this as long as you like. Once you have built yourself up enough, or have grown bored of facing the same opponent time and again, you can simply push the disc tray back into place and after about 10 seconds the music will start again the next opponent will appear. Your next opponents won't know what hit them ;)
