The inverse bifurcation sequence in one-dimensional maps is modified in two-dimensional ones in a universal way. Two-piece, four-piece, etc., strange attractors are eliminated one by one as the Jacobian approaches one. Renormalization theory around the Hamiltonian T* leads to universal behavior including universal strange attractors.
