Added some thrill kill moves and descriptions for everyone.


Thrill Kill uses the D-Pad, the four main action buttons, and the two left
shoulder buttons. Dual Shock is supported, but analog control is not.  The
button configuration can be customized, but I will use the default configuration
below to define my abbreviations.

  Square:    QP (quick punch)          LEFT:  left on the D-Pad
  Triangle:  SP (strong punch)         RIGHT: right on the D-Pad
  X:         QK (quick kick)           UP:    up on the D-Pad
  Circle:    SK (strong kick)          DOWN:  down on the D-Pad
  L1:        L1 (block)
  L2:        L2 (crouch)

From what I have been able to gather, the buttons I have labeled strong are not
necessarily stronger than the ones I have labeled quick.  I have just given them
those names to avoid confusion in the moves list.

Some more abbreviations that I use:

  F:   forward
  B:   back
  QCF: quarter circle forwad
  HCF: half circle forward
  FCF: full circle forward
  Charge indicates that you must hold the button down for a few seconds

  jab:        quick punch or kick
  knockdown:  punch or kick that knocks your opponent down
  vulnerable: punch or kick that leaves your opponent vulnerable (like a dizzy)


Every fighter in Thrill Kill has unique special moves.  However, there are also
certain moves universal to all the characters.

  QP: jab                              F-F-QP: running knockdown
  SP: jab                              F-F-SP: running knockdown
  QK: jab                              F-F-QK: running knockdown
  SK: jab                              F-F-SK: running knockdown

  QP+QK: throw 1                       L2+QP: crouching jab
  SP+SK: throw 2                       L2+SP: uppercut
  QP+SP: high counter                  L2+QK: crouching jab
  QK+SK: low counter                   L2+SK: leg sweep
  QP+SK: position swap
  QK+SP: taunt

  Regular Kills (killing a fighter prior to enabling your thrill kill)
  QP: Combo kill
  SP: Knock head off kill
  QK: Knock opponent against wall kill
  SK: Knock opponent into air

Every fighter has a move associated with each action button that starts with F
and F-B.  Since they vary, those moves are discussed in each fighter's
individual section.  Some fighters also have variations on the crouching moves
which are also discussed in their sections.

To execute a thrill kill, enter the appropriate command while the camera is
panning around your fighter, but before the lightning animation starts.  Once
the animation has started, you can release the buttons.  Nothing needs to be
entered to perform the default thrill kill.

Every fighter has a thrill kill which is a combo kill.  The combo kill
consists of a multi hit combo that ends with the loser exploding.  Every
character also has a dance kill which makes your fighter (and in some cases
the victim as well) perform a dance.  This is just for fun.

Thrill Kill's boss characters are Cain, Judas, and Marukka and they are all
fully playable, except Marukka who can be played in every mode besides arcade.
PSM magazine reported that to release Cain the game had to be completed on
medium level, hard level to free Judas, and very hard for Marukka.  I beat the
game just once on medium level and they were all released.  Give it a try.  Some
people have reported trouble freeing the bosses when continues were used.  If
you have trouble, try beating the game without using any continues.  Mammoth iw
easiest for this.

All the fighters have 4 immediately available outfits.  The fifth outfit is
released by completing all of the fighter's moves in practice mode.  The bosses
don't seem to have a fifth  outfit.  Once you have released the bonus outfit,
hold both L buttons when selecting your fighter.  Here are descriptions of the
bonus outfits:

  Tormentor - I don't know what the hell he's supposed to be, but he's green,
              wears a Hawaiian shirt, and has sunglasses
  Oddball - some sort of strange looking bear outfit
  Belladonna - ride 'em cowgirl!  Belladonna's got everything from the hat and
               boots right on down to her Daisy Dukes!
  Dr. Faustus - on his way to the AMA benefit dinner, the doctor sports a tuxedo
                complete with tophat
  Imp - Imp the Pimp!  Watch Imp become a black man, grow a huge afro, and don
        Mr. T style gold chains.  Beware of his very high platform shoes.  Yeah!
  Violet - nobody from Earth could bend like that, Violet is an alien.  Freaky big
           green head and a cool space suit complete with a picture of her home
           planet on the front.
  Mammoth - hey, kids, it's Mammoth the clown.  Mammoth is stylin' in his bright
            clothes, party hat, and painted face
  Cleetus - shiver me timbers, Phillip, it's Cleetus the pirate!  Complete with
            striped shirt, scarf hat and peg leg, Cleetus will keel haul you

I'll keep you updated on any new secrets I find.


At this point I am only aware of one code, but it's really cool.

Insant Kill Meter Fill:

 At any time during a fight, simultaneoustly press L1+L2+R1+R2+QP+QK+SELECT
 and your kill meter will instantly fill all the way up.

This isn't really a code, but this is how you enable Violet's fifth outfit.
Since two of her moves aren't really in the game, you have to do this.
For Violet's moves that don't work, simply find a very simple move and execute
it.  Before the move has been fully executed, pause the game and select change
current move from the menu.  When you unpause the game, there will be a check
mark by the move that you just selected as well as the original move that you

Game Shark Codes

I don't even have a game shark, so I can't confirm these first hand.  Here they
are anyway.

These codes come from Kyle "BoneDrag" E. (

All arena's unlocked: 801E51D0 07FF

Small problem I had with this one, when you're in one of the two hidden arenas
fighting a 4-player game, don't do the regular X kill. The character will fall
instead of sticking to the wall and the game will not proceed to the next fight.

P1 Outfit Modifer: 801C87C0 000?
P2 Outfit Modifer: 801C87C4 000?
P3 Outfit Modifer: 801C87C8 000?
P4 Outfit Modifer: 801C87CC 000?

By entering a number between 1-5 you will get a different outfit. 0, 1, and 2
all give you the normal outfits. Putting 4 in the question marks spot gives you
the hidden outfit. 5 gives you the Gimp. Only use him in practice and Vs. modes.
The gimp freezes a lot too.

Here are some more codes from the Game Shark Code Creators Club

P1 Quick Kill Meter Fill Up      800DB180 0061
P2 Quick Kill Meter Fill Up      800DB3D4 0061
P3 Quick Kill Meter Fill Up      800DB628 0061
P4 Quick Kill Meter Fill Up      800DB87C 0061
P1 Always Empty Kill Meter       800DB180 0000
P2 Always Empty Kill Meter       800DB3D4 0000
P3 Always Empty Kill Meter       800DB628 0000
P4 Always Empty Kill Meter       800DB87C 0000
P1 Character Modifier            801C87B0 000?
P2 Character Modifier            801C87B4 000?
P3 Character Modifier            801C87B8 000?
P4 Character Modifier            801C87BC 000?
Have All Characters              801E51CE 07FF

For the character modifiers, here are the values for each character:

 0: Tormentor                6: Mammoth
 1: Oddball                  7: Cleetus
 2: Belladonna               8: Cain
 3: Dr. Faustus              9: Judas
 4: The Imp                  A: Marukka
 5: Violet


The Gimp is not merely a rumor, he is available with the help of a Game Shark.
He is only available in versus and practice modes and will take on the moves of
whichever character you actually select (like Meat in Mortal Kombat 4).  He
crashes the game a lot.

Some people still claim to have full NTSC versions of the game.  Everybody who
buys from these people either end up with the beta version or the PAL version.

Electronic Arts' new wrestling game is supposedly going to use Thrill Kill's

The End

Well, that's it for now.  This FAQ is written in my spare time (which I don't
have much of) so please be patient.  This FAQ is fairly complete, but will be
updated as necessary.  If you know of anything else that should be added to this
FAQ, feel free to drop me an e-mail. Since there are so many combos in the game,
I am not planning on including them in this FAQ unless there is substantial
demand.  If you have anything additional to contribute, I'll give you credit.
