Notes, characters for N64 No Mercy
By JON WALDMAN -- For SLAM! Wrestling

WWF No Mercy I'd like to start off by thanking everyone who has written into me about my review of WWF No Mercy for the N64. I appreciate all comments, both good and bad, and any tips you have for the game. Now let's get on to the business at hand: Glitches, unlocking secret wrestlers, and creating new wrestlers.

Glitch Alert

Do not use one wrestler to conquer more than one title at once. I attempted to use a created wrestler to go after both the Light Heavyweight and Hardcore belts at the same time, and my system went blank and I lost my characters and title information. If you wish to pursue the belts with one character, finish a belt off completely before moving onto the next one. I don't know if this happens if you try the Survival mode, but I wouldn't risk it if I were you.

Unlocking wrestlers

After several emails on Andre the Giant, I have narrowed down the fastest ways to unlock the legend as being such:

1. Matt Brown reported that he unlocked Andre as low as 75th in survival mode. The highest I heard from others was the final four and number 101.

2. 'Hawk7602' reported that you could unlock Andre in the WWF Title mode. 'Peter' confirmed this report, saying that Andre appears in Chapter 11, entitled 'Lethal Weapon.'

3. James Blair reported that he was able to use Andre during the Royal Rumble when he set it on 40 wrestlers.

In any event, Andre stands at 7'11" (Laidback03), and his finisher is the Undertaker's powerbomb, also known as The Last Ride (Kuljeet Thiara)

  • Ryan Murphy was kind enough to send in a list of wrestlers he's been able to unlock: Andre, Ken Shamrock, Mick Foley, Cactus Jack, Vince McMahon, Linda McMahon, Shane McMahon, Earl Hebner, Michael Cole, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Pat Patterson, Gerald Brisco, Mae Young, Moolah, Shawn Micahaels, and Paul Bearer. 'GameWizard_1' also told me that you could unlock Raven by winning the survival mode with Tazz.
  • I'll mention quickly that I was able to unlock Shane McMahon at #23 in Survival mode.

  • Adam Baldwin wrote in, asking if the Headbangers are unlockable. I would assume so, since their pictures available in the CAW section. I would assume they would be unlocked in the tag team mode. Anyone unlocked the 'Bangers? Let me know. Also, if anyone has been able to unlock any other characters, please let me know.

    Create-a-Wrestler

    Here comes the fun part. As much fun as the WWF roster is, we all like to make wrestlers as much as anything else. Send me your creations, along with an image if possible, and we'll post them.

    We've got two this week. One, done by yours truly, of Raven, and the other, courtesy of Ryan May, of Hulk Hogan.

    One other creation note, Lindsay Cameron wrote in, saying she put the Phantom Mask (available in the Smackdown Mall) on The Godfather to make him Papa Shango. The masks in the game will be helpful in making a lot of face-painted and masked wrestlers, namely Sting and the Ultimate Warrior. I'll have those creations for you next week.

    I goofed

    Several readers pointed out my error on my point about Lita's Hurcanrana. The move is available in the game as a special turnbuckle manoeuvre.

    Survey

    A quick little survey I want to send out to everyone: what is the toughest match to win? My choice goes to the submission match (I Quit match) during the championship mode. It took me a HALF HOUR to finally get Ken Shamrock to tap out. Let me know what you think.

    NO MERCY NOTES? Email them to Jon Waldman, and we'll post 'em on the site at a later date.

    THQ's No Mercy a great N64 game
