Random Select[edit]

The Random Select squares are normally invisible. There are two for the first player and two for the second. The 1P squares are located above Dan and below Zangief. The 2P squares are above Akuma and below Dhalsim. When you've highlighed a Random Select square, it will show each character's portrait quickly, and when you press the button, you'll get whatever character was shown at the time. When selecting a normally-playable character via Random Select, the button you press determines the ISM chosen: Press Arcade-Button-LPunch.png or Arcade-Button-LKick.png for X-ism, press Arcade-Button-MPunch.png or Arcade-Button-MKick.png for A-ism, and press Arcade-Button-HPunch.png or Arcade-Button-HKick.png for V-ism. If you've used the Random Select square to pick a hidden character, then you still get to select their ISM manually from the menu. This doesn't apply (for either normal or hidden characters) if you've previously selected Classical Mode. Note that there are two colors for your character's clothing in either ISM (depending on whether you use Punch or Kick to choose your character).

Hidden characters[edit]
