0.) About Me and Introduction
----------------------------------------
Hey. JagDogger2525 here. This is my first FAQs guide. I have been gaming for
years now and I own a few systems with a few games (hence my Contributor Data),
and I want to share this guide for the game Twisted Metal: Head-On. So enough
about me let's get to it. This guide is for all those who are stuck on this
game. To find something you are stuck on, you can just press Ctrl and F
simultaneously to bring up the "Find" box. There you can type the Section.

Twisted Metal: Head-On is the PSP version of the famous Playstion car combat
game Twisted Metal. This time, you can save your games and, once in a while,
choose which place you want to go next.

----------------------------------------
Car: Roadkill
Driver: Marcus Kane
Age: 35 - Height: 5'11"
Weight: 255

Marcus Kane is a man plagued with nightmare of competing in past Twisted Metal
competition. Each dream is very real, but he believes it’s a fake. He doesn’t
know it, but he’s got a split personality. His other identity is Needles Kane
(the driver of Sweet Tooth). Lately these nightmares (which are actually
memories that Calypso has tried to hide from Marcus) have gotten worse and
worse. Eventually he wakes up one day and there’s a Twisted Metal vehicle
waiting outside for him. Ready to put these nightmares to rest once and for all,
he decides to compete in what he believes to be another nightmare; he doesn’t
realize this Twisted Metal is for real.

Age: Long Dead
Height: 5'3" - Weight: 115

Mortimer, a former caretaker of wayward souls, has long since gone back to rest
in his coffin. One night, some kids are goofing around near Mortimer's grave.
One of them reads the "Gone but not forgotten" inscription on the tombstone and
drunkenly decides to see if that's true. They dig up the grave and wake up
Mortimer. This upsets Mortimer as he finds he can't go back to sleep. Exhausted
and desperate to go back to his eternal slumber, Mortimer enters Twisted Metal
hoping Calypso can put him back to sleep.

Age: 26 - Height: 5'10"
Weight: 180
(All stats are from when he was human)

Mr. Grimm is, in fact, the grim reaper himself. At some point during his
centuries of work, he attempted to devour a soul himself instead taking it to
its next destination. He became hooked; needing to devour more and more souls.
He found himself absorbing more souls than he was delivering. This craving was
driving Mr. Grimm to the point of insanity. He realizes he can't take it anymore
and enters Twisted Metal hoping that Calypso can give someone else the job of
being the Grim Reaper.

For years, Angel has wanted to compete with the big-boys and their lowriding,
customized, bass pumping vehicles. Growing up she has watched her brothers and
cousins build, modify and create incredible vehicles, while basking in all of
the attention and notoriety that comes along with them. She has had to stand by
the sidelines simply watching the car show competitions instead of competing
herself. Twisted Metal was just the opportunity she was looking for. If she
wins she will finally have the car that puts them all to shame.

source. The prize? A "special" vehicle to compete in a contest called Twisted
Metal, and all you have to do to win is be the 7th caller. Of course the DJ's
have no clue what they're giving away and the 7th caller, Chuckie Floop, is just
happy to win something. Chuckie doesn't realize what he is in for and discovers
from the mysterious contest creator that the winner will be granted any wish
they desire. Not sure how this contest works or how anyone can grant wishes,
Chuckie's mind focuses on the important "what will I wish for?".

More than a decade ago, Axel was imprisoned in a massive, two-wheeled
contraption by his father. At the end of Twisted Metal 2, he confronted his
father about this and he was told he'd have to spend another decade imprisoned.
In a show of defiance, he tore his arms free from the contraption and
disappeared. Even though he was now free, he found he couldn't handle living
without the thing he'd been part of for so long. He felt like he'd lost a part
of his body. Axel met a doctor who constructed cybernetic arms and feet that
would allow him to drive the vehicle once again, on the condition that Axel
would turn over his wish should he win Twisted Metal.

Simon Whittlebone was the mastermind behind Whittlebone Tower; a skyscraper that
was to stretch taller than any building that had come before it. While the
building was under construction, Simon climbed to the top of the tower and
shouted to the universe that this creation made him a god. He lost his balance
and fell to the ground. With the mastermind dead, the tower was never finished.
Companies tried to tear the remains down, but strange and ghostly things always
kept people at bay; Simon's spirit has been haunting the tower. His spirit
possesses one of the construction vehicles and he enters Twisted Metal with the
hopes of being reborn so he can finish his tower.

Driver: Catfish
Age:47 - Height: 6'1"
Weight: 175

Catfish, a man who prides himself as the mighty hunter, decided to modify his
favorite rig to compete in this year's Twisted Metal, because after all, it's
just another form of hunting, vehicular style. Catfish's illustrious and often
illegal hunting obsession has resulted in the head of every type of big game
creature to hang proudly in his favorite trophy room. Now, Catfish's ultimate
dream is to hunt the most intelligent species in the animal kingdom, the Human,
in an all-out, man vs. man survival of the fittest in the raw wilderness.

Special Weapon: Ram Attack
----------------------------------------
Car: RV
Driver: Cousin Eddy
Age: 29 - Height: 6'0"
Weight: 300

Cousin Eddy was born in a backwater Ozarks pigsty called Sour Creek. You won't
find it on any map. A textbook case of what can go wrong when cousins marry
cousins, Eddy was the strongest man in town by the time he was ten, though his
malformed, inbred brain had stopped developing at age three. Eddy only had two
loves: "smashin' things" and collecting "shiny things". By age thirteen he owned
all of the shiny things in Sour Creek. After he'd finish his smashing the place
was kind of lonely, so he wandered off in search of more shiny things and more
things to smash. When he stumbled across the Twisted Metal competition he
thought he'd found paradise. Eddy had gathered a band of drifters - "cousins" he
called them - who he coerced by brute strength into helping him transform a
trash RV into a nightmare killing machine. Now he could blast his way into
Twisted Metal. So much to smash. So many shiny things...

Special Weapon: Ram
----------------------------------------
Car: ATV
Driver: Gene Ruttish
Age: 22 - Height: 5'9"
Weight: 185

Gene Ruttish had always fancied himself a ladies' man... unfortunately noone
ever told the ladies. All his life he'd tried one crazy ATV stunt after another
in the vain attempt to gain their favor. For years he's been living by the
credo, "Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever." Years of trying
crazy stunts have made him quite the skilled driver and willing risk-taker.
Joining Cousin Eddy's caravan has given him a place to show off his skills and
Twisted Metal is his latest attempt to "wow" the women. Gene knows exactly what
he wants from Twisted Metal. When he wins, he will ask Calypso to make him the
most desired man on the planet.

Car: Dark Tooth
Driver: Marcus Kane
Age: 35 - Height: 5'11"

Terrible things can happen when a man comes to grips with his dark side. Marcus
has spent his life running from his nightmares. Needles has devoted his life to
making his nightmares come true. When Marcus surrenders to Needles the whole is
greater than the sum of the parts. Marcus' rational mind and Needles' fevered
insanity descend into a vortex of sinister chaos. The only possible outcome is
the total annihilation of anything that stands in their path.
