Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble is the first VJ game I've played, and I got
hooked up immediately by the good gameplay and original style the game
offered. VJ:DT is not a long trip but this fun journey is action packed and
puzzle heavy. This guide is created for those who might have some trouble
solving the puzzles from time to time, although the objective of each
scene is pretty obvious and there are even hints provided on the screen.
Also note this:

THIS GUIDE CONTAINS SPOILERS.

This guide will try to stay away from telling the storyline. However being
a walkthrough, this guide will contain a lot of spoilers, especially when it
comes to tell you the goal(s) of particular scenes. 

Basic control and item descriptions can be found in the instruction booklet.
There are even tutorials about the control and items are pretty straight
forward, so this guide will not cover them. Note that the term 'Cheese
Burger' is used for all the hamburger-like items (such as Meals).

Try different combos when facing enemies. This guide will list only the
primary goals of each scene: collecting v-tapes and defeating enemies are
regarded as something you should be able to do without any help and not
mentioned specifically unless it is the current goal of the scene. This
guide will keep a record of the cumulated number of v-tapes shown at the
end of each scene as the game progresses.

the SLIDE is that the screen zooms in, and the top screen of DS is still

at the top screen. Aren't you glad that DS has two screens (quoted from Egg
Monster Hero DS)? heh.

you did this correctly, the car will be smashed and you will be able to get
the key inside. Move to the right.

=============================
== Boss Fight : Gadget-Cop ==
=============================

*Attacks*

1. He shouts "Double 3" and shoots three bullets, followed by another set of
   three bullets.
2. He jumps and kicks downwards diagonally.
3. He lifts his torso and shoots out rockets.
4. He spins his torso to swing his arms, jumps towards you then hit right
   before him.

*Strategy*

If you observe his patterns, you will find him easy to beat. Use V-DODGE
to dodge the bullets or the rockets. Just move around to avoid his drop
kick. When he stops and lifts up his torso, you will see the sign that says
'SLIDE' right before he shoots out the rockets. Use SLIDE then touch his
body(OK, this guide is officially PG-13 now...heh) to stun him, then he is
open to some free shots for a while. It is possible to use SPLIT to cut
open the water pipe in the background and short circuit him, in which case
he will get stunned and become immobile for a while. Simply avoid his
swings from attack 4 by staying away: you can't V-DODGE this attack. When
you beat him you will be able to proceed to the next episode.

===============================================================================

here this February (heh).

Scene 2: 34
Keep going right until the trap ceiling falls down and block the way. Go

bring the target above the bomb if necessary then uppercut to send the bomb
flying. Repeat this one more time. When you walk over the bridge gate, you
will fight yet another Battleroid. It shoots at you while flying, shoots out
a big bullet on the ground and spins around to hit you when you are close.
You can SPLIT the screen to get the bomb and uppercut it to hit the

===============================
== Boss Fight : Killer Hands ==
===============================

*Attacks*

1. He pulls out cutters, charges at you then slices four times.
2. He pulls out a hammer and a sharp spring, jumps towards you then hits
   with the hammer.
3. He pulls out a hammer and a sharp spring, charges at you then hits with
   the spring four times.
4. He pulls out a hook, charges at you then slices two times.
5. He pulls out wings, floats then flies towards you.
6. He pulls out an electroshock device then throws short-range spark.
7. He pulls out a chain saw, aims with the skull mark at a distance then
   charges at you with a big swing.

*Strategy*

I had hard time deciding the sex of this boss and conctacted the voice
actor but he was not supposed to say about the character a lot. I will
contact Clover Studio some other time. Until that time this guide considers
Killer Hands male :D

Although this boss has a lot of tricks up his sleeve (very cheap pun
intended heh), he is easy to overcome. Just watch the top screen (or the
bottom screen, depending on the situation) and see what he prepares. After
dodging the attack, get close to him then start laying the punches of
justice on him. When you see the sign 'SLIDE,' get close to him then use
SLIDE then touch him to stun him. He is a fairly easy boss and you will have
no problem with him.


*The v-tape collection log in this episode is not perfect.*

Scene 2: 5
Move to the right and enter a stadium. Defeat 4 soldiers (the tanks are not

is easier way. Taking care of the tanks first will make the job easier. Use
SPLIT at the end then move up to the ledge to proceed.

---------

3-7

Scene 1: 18
Defeat two bombers. You can use SLIDE then touch the dinosaur in the
background to stop it from breathing out fire, but it's quite easy to hit
the bombers in the mid-air, especially if you bought AIR JOE.

Defeat the drop ship. The enemy soldier doesn't seem to die, so leave it.
Do evade his bullets. You will have to get on top of the pink box using SLOW

choose to transform between a tank and a human form. When it is a tank, it
shoots a bullet three times then charges at you. Use V-DODGE or simply jump.
When it is in human form, it hits right in front of it or jumps towards you
then takes a swing as it lands. Don't forget to collect v-points from the
green box in the background. A passage opens up upon defeating the
Battleroid.

---------

3-10

Scene 1: 15
Proceed all the way to the right using SPLIT. Watch out for the lasers. Use
SLIDE to get the green box in the background. When you pass the second
laser, jump onto the upper floor. You will see a hook and the sign that says
'SPLIT.' Use SPLIT to get the red jewel inside of the structure. If you want
to collect some v-tapes and v-points, keep going right and hit the pink box
in the mid-air. Come back to the place with hook, then SPLIT your way to the
left this time. Watch out for the laser. Use SPLIT again to pull the
platform on your left all the way to the middle of the screen then jump onto
it. Put the jewel into the hole on the machine there. Drop down to left and
use SPLIT, or double jump into the structure to get a blue jewel this time.
Get back to the place where you put the red jewel into the machine, then
make your way to the right using SPLIT. keep going right and you will see
another machine with a hole. Put the blue jewel into the hole and you will

you have to repeat the whole process.

---------

3-12

Scene 1: 37
Defeat 8 enemies.

Scene 2: 1
Use SLOW then uppercut one ship. Don't let go of SLOW, and while the ship is
in the middle of the air use SPLIT to stack it on top of the other ship. Get
on the pile of ships then reach the flag on the upper right part of the
screen.

---------

3-13

Scene 1: 17
Defeat 5 enemies, not including the small tanks. You can use SLIDE then touch
the lasers to deactivate them for a while. V-DODGE the bullets from tanks
and proceed right.

---------

a password displays. Hit the rolling numbers to set the password. Uppercut
is recommended. Use SLOW if necessary. Use SPLIT to enter the room to the
right to collect some v-tapes and v-points. Get back to the first room and
you will notice that now you can push the button in the background. Using
SLIDE to push it will activate an elevator. Hop on it and move onto the
higher platform on your right.

Scene 3: 17
SPLIT your way to the right, then double jump onto the higher platform
above. Use SPLIT again to enter the room on your left, then get on the
elevator. Use SLIDE then touch the lever to send the elevator up. Notice
that the lever will start to spin once you touch it, then stop when you
release the touch screen. The closer the lever is to right, the higher the
elevator will go up. Jump off the elevator quickly once it gets high enough
since sparks await you on top of the shaft. Use SPLIT to enter the next room
on the right. If you SPLIT your way to the room right to current room,
there are some v-tapes to collect in that room. Get back to the first
platform after the elevator, use SPLIT then stand on top of the split
wall. Jump left (leaning on the wall) then jump right to reach the flag on
the upper right platform.

Scene 4: 17

---------

3-18

========================================
== Boss Fight : Alter Woman (Vanilla) ==
========================================

*Attacks*

1. She performs a cartwheel to move around the screen.
2. She shoots out some energy balls.
3. She builds an energy wall.
4. She hits four times.
4. She goes into the background to hide then shoots out missiles.
5. She goes into the background to hide then rains four satellites/meteors.
6. She gathers up some energy then shoots out energy bullets.

*Strategy*

Don't worry, you have more than 3 minutes :) At first, she will only use
pattern 1-4. She is invincible when doing a cartwheel. You can hit back the
energy balls to inflict some damage on her, or V-DODGE them. The energy wall
can be broken by your SPLIT. If you dodge all four blows from attack 4, a
sigh that says 'SLIDE' appears then stays on her for a long time. When you
have a chance, use SLIDE then touch her to stun her for a while. Attack 4 is
only performed once, when her life becomes less than half. Simply V-DODGE
the missiles or move around to avoid them. After that, she adds two new
attacks(5, 6) to her arsenal. There are four debris falling from the sky
when she performs attack 5, and only the fourth one inflicts damage on you.
Simply run back and jump to dodge it(or V-DODGE it if you want). You will
see SLIDE sign when she performs attack 6: if you use SLIDE then she will
be stunned and a debris will fall on her to cause some damage to her.
Overall, she is not really tough if you know her pattern.

===============================================================================

Defeat 5 enemies.

Scene 2: 22
Ride the Merry-Go-Round, double jump to reach the security switch and brake

Get on one of the carts of the Ferris wheel. You will see a switch in the
centre of the Ferris wheel and there is some space that you can stay in
right below the switch. You will have to jump into the space, then the
screen zooms out to broaden the view. Wait until the cart with a key gets
close to a giant 'S' of the sign that says 'MOVIE STUDIO,' use SLIDE to
switch screens and push the button to stop the Ferris wheel as if the next
cart that will stop at the ground level is the cart with the key. If done
correctly the cart will open. Get the key then enter 'RESTAURANT VOLCANO.'

---------

4-3

a little pinball stage going here. Stand on one of the flippers, use SLIDE
then touch(hold down a bit actually) the red circle on the flipper to send
Joe flying. Double jump to reach the flag. When you reach the flag, magma
erupts and blows Joe sky high.

---------

4-6

Scene 1: 48

guys since when they charge at you they will leave a long trail of fire.

Scene 2: 12
Defeat the enemy here. It will leave you a nickel.

Scene 3: 12
Insert the coin by jumping close to the hole then use SLIDE to change
screens. Spin the bar there to get a giant head. Hit th head over to
overflowing sewage and block it. Proceed right.

---------

4-7

Scene 1: 40
Get on the 'FLYING CARIBBEAN' and defeat three enemies. You can use SLIDE
and touch those pesky Clownies in the background to stop them from shooting
cannons for a short while.

---------

4-9

Scene 1: 33
You will fight a giant tank here. The top cannon will shoot out some cannon
balls and the bottom one will shoot out flame balls which leave a trail of
fire when hit the ground. The fire can be put out by using SPLIT on the
fountain in the background. Use SLOW to increase size of the water drops.
Just keep hitting the tank and dodge its attacks. You can't V-DODGE the
flame balls.

---------

4-10

Scene 1: 47
Defeat 10 enemies. Use a Pink Gourd, if you'd like. When the effect of the
Pink Gourd is active, use SCRATCH to confuse the enemies then punch them to
cause greater damage.

Scene 2: 11
Defeat 6 enemies. The Pink Gourd comes in handy. Enter 'ACTION STADIUM.'

---------

4-11

Scene 1: 39
Defeat 5 enemies. You are getting targeted constantly so watch out. Again,
the Pink Gourd you can find from upper right part of the room helps a lot.

---------

4-12

Scene 1: 39
Defeat two enemies.

Scene 2: 11
Get on the moving platform and make your way to the higher ground. Stand on
still ground then use SLIDE to close the valve. Move onto the conveyer belt
then right before the next gas eruption keep moving left while using SLIDE
and closing the valve. That is, your left hand should be pressing left on
the directional pad of DS while you are in the SLIDE mode and at the same
time your right hand should be closing the valve. Proceed right and do it
again to reach the flag. 

---------

4-13

Scene 1: 15
Defeat the enemy here.

Scene 2: 23
Get on the elevator. The view broadens again. Use SLIDE to spin the gear

to decide when to stop). Go up all the way.

---------

4-14

===============================
== Boss Fight : Meta Rangers ==
===============================

*Attacks*

Ranger Log

1. He charges at you with a big punch.
2. He jumps and sprinkles some powders.
3. He jumps backwards then fires a giant fire ball as he lands.
4. He takes a big leap vertically then kicks down, which creates close-range
   flame attack.

Ranger Digi

1. He charges at you with a big punch.
2. He jumps and sprinkles some powders.
3. He jumps vertically then does diagonal kick three times.
4. He crouches a bit then charges at you with a flurry of punches.

*Strategy*

This battle consists of three parts: you fight against Ranger Log first,
then when one full life bar drains he tags with Ranger Digi. Drain another
life bar, and you will fight both of them at the same time. Learn their
pattern and use SLOW to counter. They don't have SLIDE time like previous
bosses but they do open themselves a lot after each attack. The only attack
you can't V-DODGE is attack 4 of each Ranger. There is also Jasmine hiding
in the background to support you: if you use SLIDE to touch her she will
throw you a bunch of helpful items. You can find a Pink Gourd from the pink
box in the upper right part of the stage. Beat them to proceed to the next
episode.

===============================================================================

Episode 5 - Viewtiful World [EP5]

---------

5-1

Scene 1: 0
Take down 10 enemies.

---------

5-2

Scene 1: 2
From this point, the game becomes boss rush. Defeat Gadget-Cop. Start by
collecting all the v-tapes. While it is possible to stun him by using
SCRATCH to open up the water pipe followed by SLOW which amplifies water
drops, it is easier(and faster) to engage him head-on to bring him down.

---------

5-3

Scene 1: 3
Fight Killer Hands. It is possible to hit him with the stalactites using
SCRATCH but the damage is too small.

---------

5-4

Scene 1: 17
It's Alter Woman who goes down this time. You can stand on the clouds here.

---------

5-5

Scene 1: 7
Didn't we just fight Meta Rangers? Oh well, here we go again. This time,
both of them will engage you from the beginning.

---------

5-6

==========================
== Boss Fight : Alastor ==
==========================

*Attacks*

1. He pulls out his sword then charges at you three times.
2. He shoots out swords in the middle of the air then the swords fly at you.
3. He kicks down vertically while he flies.
4. He kicks down diagonally while he flies(like Joe's Red Hot Kick)
5. He flies into the background then emits thunderbolts for a while.

*Strategy*

You can't V-DODGE attack 3-5. Use SLOW a lot to see(and V-DODGE) his
attacks. You will have to watch him on the top screen from time to time.
AIR JOE helps a lot here, since he is mostly floating. If you see Alastor
perform attack 5, simply use SLIDE then touch him. If you manage to touch
him while he is flying low, you will put him into magma in the background
and he will appear in one of fountains at the end of the stage, being
stunned. Attack him whenever you see a chance, such as at the end of attack
1 or when he is simply floating. This fight is warm up for upcoming boss
battle.

---------

5-7

============================
== Boss Fight : Rex Majin ==
============================

*Attacks*

1. It pulls out its sword then charges at you three times.
2. It shoots out missiles in the middle of the air then the missiles fly
   towards you.
3. It flies into the background then emits thunderbolts for a while.

*Strategy*

You can only V-DODGE attack 1. You will be using Six Majin in this battle,
but it has same abilities as Joe. This boss will repeat attack 1-3 in order.
There is some opening at the end of attack 1. When the missiles are shot,
SLIDE immediately then wait until the missiles come closer, and touch the
missiles quickly. Use SLOW as well if necessary. If you don't take care of
them they will keep flying around you and will damage you to no end. You
can't stop Rex Majin's thunderbolts this time. The best way to dodge this
attack is as follows: think of the bolt as a wall. When it comes to your
way, jump over the 'wall' to land on the other side of it. Jump back over
the 'wall' to go back to your original position. Keep jumping back and forth
until the boss stops the attack. Defeating the boss will let you proceed to
the last episode of the game.

===============================================================================

Episode 6 - Viewtiful Joe & Jasmine [EP6]

---------

6-1

Scene 1: 12
Defeat 9 enemies.

Scene 2: 8
Defeat 5 enemies. Use SPLIT to get on top of the pink box then collect some
v-tapes.

---------

6-2

Scene 1: 4
Defeat 6 enemies. The knight armors in the background attack you so be
careful. Use SPLIT to collect v-tapes in the upper middle part of the room
before you finish off the last enemy.

---------

6-3

Scene 1: 44
Defeat two enemies.

---------

6-4

Scene 1: 14
Defeat three enemies. Suck out the poison gas clouds by using SPLIT on the
fireplace if they bother you. Exit left.

---------

6-5

Scene 1: 4
Defeat three enemies. Use the Gold Gourd that is found in the pink box well.

---------

6-6

Scene 1: 24
Familiar setting, no? Defeat three enemies. Get out to the balcony.

---------

6-7

Scene 1: 30
Double jump to the right. Use SPLIT to pull left to right then jump onto
left platform. Use SLIDE then touch the wooden window to open it. Stand
on the open wood panel then use SCRATCH to punch a hole above, SPLIT the
screen then move upward to reach the flag.

Scene 2: 30
Defeat 3 enemies.

Scene 3: 0
The view broadens yet again (if not then jump). There are platforms going in
and out of the wall. Use them as a platform to head upward and reach the
flag.

---------

6-8

Scene 1: 20
As you enter the room, the door shuts down and the trap ceiling starts to
fall down. You will see a clock counts down 60 seconds. Simply wear it out.
When the clock ticks to 3 seconds, the scene will be over. Don't overuse
SLOW if you want to have a good grade on TIME. When the scene is over,
you will fight the last boss of the game. Prepare yourself during the
intermission. Spend your v-points like it is the end of the world! (heh)

---------

6-9

============================================
== Boss Fight : Heinderella (castle form) ==
============================================

*Attacks*

1. The hands pour out water while gathering to the centre.
2. The hands clap three times: high, middle then low.
3. The castle shoots out two missiles.
4. The castle will target you and shoot you five times in a row (after
   pushing the switch).

*Strategy*

This is a fairly easy part of the last boss. Your main goal is to hit back
the missiles either by punching them or using V-DODGE. The boss will repeat
attack 1-3 in that order(except attack 4, which comes into the pattern
later). You can stand on the hands but staying below (near the flame) or
coming in contact with palms while they slowly clap will damage you so watch
out. The water pillar will also damage you so don't get near it. Jump in the
centre or just stay on the hands to avoid the water pillar. Staying at the
edge of the screen is a great way to avoid any attack from hands. Doing so
sometimes even sends the enemy away from you. Once turned back, the missiles
will hit the central orb of the castle. After about 6 hits, the central orb
will break and will reveal a switch. Use SLIDE to push it and the whole
castle will come alive. The goal remains same, but the missiles are bigger
and you are being targeted. Now the boss repeats attack 2, 3 and 4 (not
necessarily in that order). If you are low on life, kill the enemy here to
get a Cheese Burger. Generally you will have no problem if you try to stay
on one of the hands constantly.

---------

6-10

==============================
== Boss Fight : Heinderella ==
==============================

*Attacks*

1. She flies towards you then hits two times.
2. She summons 4 golden rods which fly towards you.

*Strategy*

You can't use VFX powers in this battle. Simply avoid her attacks. Golden
rods can be dodged easily: stop moving when they appear, then jump directly
upward. After some time you will be prompted to a real battle. Hitting her
does not do anything, so concentrate on dodging and pass some time.

---------

6-11

==============================
== Boss Fight : Heinderella ==
==============================

*Attacks*

1. She makes a shadow of herself around you.
2. She charges energy then flies towards you three times.
3. She charges at you and hits two times.
4. She summons 8 golden rods. Four of them fly towards you and the other
   four rain on the screen.
5. She summons 4 golden rods which fly towards you.
6. She summons 4 golden rods which rain on the screen.
7. She shoots out a long flame trail on the ground.
8. She flies into the background, split into four then targets you and
   shoots you constantly.

*Strategy*

Now this feels like more like the last boss. Use V-DODGE to dodge attack 2
or 3. Attacks 4-6 is dodged easily but use V-DODGE if necessary. Jump to
avoid attack 7. There should be some opening after you dodge attack 2 or 3.
Attack 1 doesn't seem to do nothing, but it is followed either by attack 1
or 2. The sequence is random so observe her pattern a lot then counter
attack. Attack 8 will only happen after you drain one life bar out of her.
This attack is very hard to dodge: use SLIDE immediately (followed by SLOW
if necessary) and touch all four of her to bring her back to the battle
ground. Jasmine is hiding in the background as well to support you. Give
the boss all you've got. Good luck!

===============================================================================

Congratulations, you beat the game! Enjoy the ending. You can also start new
game with 'V-RATED' difficulty if you beat the game on 'ADULT' difficulty.
