"Power without perception is spiritually useless therefore of no true value."
-Ryuken

I've been a fan of North Star for quite some time, and it's been a defining
factor in at least my last decade for my love of animation and other formats. I
have had to defend North Star on many occasions, as people tried to convince me
that Fist was terrible? Why?

Because when I asked them to name good animation, they'd tow the fanboy line
and name a dozen highschool romances, and while not all of them are bad they
didn't really show any intiative or individual thought. Fist of the North Star
has layers. There's a few truly despicable characters in here, who truly know
how to manipulate a scarred world and they are the defining villains for me.
While Hokuto's message is usually fairly blunt, it all depends how you read it.

Ha ha ha, anyways from Daffy Duck to Kenshiro - there's a lot of great material
out there if you give it a chance. Too many unfairly passed over animations.
Perhaps my love for Fist comes from the general material I watched at that
time.

You see, thanks to my older bro, a lot of this time for me is defined by old
martial arts flicks. Post-apocalyptic martial artists who wax philosophical,
what wasn't to love? In fact, the best characters were those who were
manipulative than directly powerful, as I mentioned above.

And I was like a child again when I started to surf the internet and find out
more about North Star. There were few, if any sites for quite a while there but
eventually my eyes were opened to the series proper. I enjoyed the manga and
lapped up all of this material that _wasn't_ on my videocassette (or VHS for
my overly specific little brother). Terrific!

But I've always found one part of Hokuto lore lacking. Many of the games really
aren't that great. A lot of them are decent, and I really enjoy a lot of them
just because they're Hokuto. But there's only been a few really good titles.
When I was browsing online and saw there was a game coming out for the DS, I
was worried to say the least. I knew I had to get it, but I was worried if my
desire would be justified.

Thankfully, it is. This game isn't for everyone, and isn't what you'd expect
from Hokuto. Altough maybe it is with recent pachinko (?) ventures. Ah well,
live and let die. It's a game that uses most functions of the DS and times your
reflexes as you attempt to manipulate the screen as commands come up.

It's like an interactive manga. It's not as visceral as you'd probably be
expecting from North Star, but it works. I'm satisfied.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

                             ***HnK2.1: Basics***
                                --------------

The gameplay of Hokuto takes advantage of the DS' control capabilities and is
mostly a case of pressing here or sliding there. There is a wide variety of
commands, however, and they must be executed before the time runs out.

Essentially there is a timer that runs around a panel, twice. The first timer
runs at one speed, the second usually runs more quickly. If you complete the
task within the first timer, you get a Perfect. If you complete it within the
second, you get a Great. Failure results in a miss.

So yeah, there's only three ranks and then you get a ranking at the end of the
level, all the way up to S. The equalizer here, it seems, is in combos.

Combos are how many commands you've hit without failure. A combo of one happens
after two consequtive hits. If you miss a point, you will have to start over.

It depends on the point though. Missing a strike point merely resets the combo
counter. Missing an arrow will result in a Miss.

Think of the game like an interactive manga, with a rating at the end. You will
use the following commands to fight your way through waves upon waves of
enemies and the villains of the manga.

                            ***HnK2.2: Menus***
                               -------------

There are a number of Menus in this game.
*Note that most menus have a red arrow to return to a previous screen.

Main Menu, and descritors:

*Story Mode:
Story mode is the main game. An arrow appears at top and bottom to scroll
between stories. Hit the name of teh chapter to play it, or hit the red arrow
on any completed chapter to see your best score and a breakdown of it (how many
perfects, greats, misses, and the maximum combo).

*Multiplayer:
I apologize, but as I'm the only person with this title around here I do not
know what the multiplater entails. However, you can unlock characters for it
in Story Mode. They are normally unlocked after their final battle with Ken.

*Character Profiles:
Rei pops up when you tap this. There will be up and down arrows to scroll
between profiles, which you unlock in story mode. When you tap on a profile
there will be arrows to scroll the text. At the top right, you will notice
small squares. If they are grey, you haven't unlocked that picture yet. If
they are coloured, you can switch between pictures.

*Jagi Quiz:
Jagi attacks you with a quiz. It's multiple choice and you have to tap the
correct answer. Not easy for folks who don't read Japanese.

*Cards:
Displayed as Yuda? Anyways, these are cards that you will earnt hrough story
mode. They have the name of a character and a number, up to 63. In retrospect,
I should have taken my spellings through here. But alas, this is my last part
to write. Ha... Anyways, click a card to get a bigger display, the arrows at
the bottom carry you between groups of 9 cards at a time.

In battle:
There's somethings you should know about in battle menus:

*When you pause the game, press start to unpause it but B to leave the stage.
 Useful when going for good ranks.

*After a level, there will be two options on the left and right. The left
 option is to _save_.

*Following a level there may be two options, one above the other. The top
 option is to continue to the next level. The bottom is to return to the main
 menu.


                            ***HnK2.3: Commands***
                               ----------------

*Strike Point (Stadard):

Standard strike points will just appear all over the body of the enemy. While
there is no specific order to them, you should set one. For instance, if there
are clusters then you should take out the clusters either first or last.

Say there are three clusters, finish one cluster before moving onto the next.
Say there is an outlier. It depends on the panel if you do the outlier first or
last. I find it best to hit low outliers last and high outliers first.

This may just be because of how I hold my hand, however, as the top will be
slightly blocked as I head down.

*Strike Point (Ordered):

Ordered strike points are those with numbers on them. There's no real option
here other than to hit them in the order they present. Some of the numbers will
fade away on some of the panels, so it is worth it to study the whole formation
and not just search for your next target.

*Strike Point (Counter):

A counter is a point you tap multiple times to remove. The counter in this case
appears as a little number next to a green strike point. You should hit these
rapidly a time of n-1, where n=total of the counter.

So if you have a counter with 3, hit it twice rapidly then once more to finish
it... This is to ensure we keep our combo and don't hit it too many times.

*Strike Point (Timed Appearance):

These strike points will appear on the screen over time. For the most part, it
is just as well to hit them as they appear in the order presented to you.
Sometimes, it's best to try and follow this pattern, and stop and rack up some
clusters of points.

It depends on the situation. The latter occurs primarily during the times where
Ken breaks out with his hundred cracked fist or other multiple hit attack. If
it's nothing like this, however, just try to hit them in the order in which
they appear. Except for a -few- cases, it will be good for the perfect.

Note that in situations like the hundred cracked fist, some points disappear.
So watch out.

*Strike Point (Dependent):

Dependent strike points are the most explicit in pattern. The next point will
not show up until you hit the previous. Just hit them as they appear.

*Arrow (Straight):

---> The arrow appears on the screen. You simply need to swipe your stylus
     from butt to head to complete this one.

*Arrow (Half Circle):

 .'    The half circle is a little more difficult, but not explicitly so. It's
'      just a crescent shaped slash, after all. Do it fairly quickly.
'.      
  '->

*Arrow (Full Circle):

 .'''.   The full circle is more difficult still. The vast majority of full
'     '  circles give you allowance for accuracey, use it. Don't lag behind,
'.   .'  but draw them a __little__ more slowly, as they're easier to screw up.
  '>'

*Arrow (Full Circle Counter):

This one is like the full circle, except it has a counter. When faces with
this, start at one arrow head and follow through back to this arrow head for
one full count.

There is less of an emphasis on accuracy here, though you still must keep the
shape. Still, there is a need for speed in this case.

*Arrow (Long Twisted Path):

This one is usuallya  very long and convoluted path. You should take these at
a moderate speed, slowing down for tighter curves. They are big, they are
imposing, but there's more than enough time for you to do these. Just take the
open stretches quickly, slow down a little bit for the tightest curves.

*Slice Point:
Slice points are most common in Nanto stages, but may also appear in Hokuto.
They are like headless arrows. You can fall out of them and try again, there
won't be a miss, but you will lose your combo.

You can slice these from either of the two presented directions. Swipe the
stylus form one side to the other.

Slice points can appear at any angle. I suggest you grow accustomed to diagonal
slice points at the earliest opportunity.

*Slider (Counter):

Two arrows running opposite to one another with a counter. Slide the stylus
back and forth between the arrow heads. One trip back then forth is considered
a full count. So for a counter fo "10" you will need to do 20 lengths, or 10
counts.

These can be diagonal, which are the most difficult as you can more easily fall
out of the slider.

Make your path as truncated as possible, as soon as you reach one head, head
back to the other. These short, quick paths are the key to getting perfects.

*Charging Bars:

Two bars surround a ball.

(_____( )_____) The bars start out unfilled.

(###__( )__###) The two bars fill at the same time, and change colour.

(#####(*)#####) When both bars are filled, and everything is blue - hit the
                central ball to register a success.

*Max Power:

Max power appears as a long bar with a starburst on one end. Start tapping that
star burst raspidly and the bar will start to fill up in red. When it nears the
end of the bar, slow down the time between tap, so you get precisely the right
amount.

*Enemy Attacks:

Enemy attacks often come in the form of a weapon or a lit up part of their
bodies. As such, they are usually fairly obvious. However, some are more than
this and require a different technique to defeat than just "tap the attacks as
they appear."

These are explained in the text for the chapters.

*Screen Focus:

The screen will shift out of focus. When the screen is back inf ocus, tap the
screen before it can unfocus again. This leads to victory.

*Microphone:

Very rare in this game of Hokuto, blow into the microphone when the big green
icon with the breath shows up. Make sure you keep blowing until the icon
registers as being completed.

*Phrase:

Simple, Ken must say a slick phrase to clinch some of the fights. Pick the
correct text box for the win!

|                          HnK3: Walkthrough Part 1                          |
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This walkthrough is mainly geared toward an A or S rank run. It'll be most
helpful in forming a game plan when you go for those ranks. You can get by with
basic tactics, but there are some trouble-spots for any run - especially
initial. This should cover it as well.

It should also be noted that there WILL be slight variations on the patterns
within. Say you miss one panel, it may give some a miss or change to a
different pattern. I am aware of this, and I do apologize I can't give a super
accurate guide. Ah well, it'll help wher eyou need it I hope.

Still, this is fairly consistent with what pattern I receive when I attempt the
levels again. Still, you can see where I stopped being so narrative by the
third chapter. Most panels are accounted for but the only ones that will matter
for most folks are those against major enemies. Anyways, that's enough damage
control. Ha...

It should be explained -

* Denotes an action panel.
~ Denotes a story panel.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                              HnK3.1: Chapter 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                  ---Zeed---

The first few panels will show some back story and show the ittle. The game
will begin once chapter 1 has been announced.

Ken is shown walking forward and then in jail with Bat. After Lin appears, the
screen will shake and a gang draws near. Ken stands up in Jail.

Action Screen 1:
~Ken stands up in jail.
*This panel appears on the left of the screen. It's two arrows with a counter
 set on 10. Run the stylus back and forth 10 times rapidly over this prompt to
 break the bars.

Ken will rush out of jail to find a dude holding Lin above his head. Lin will
call out. Ken will crack his knuckles and approach the mob. Get ready, after
this screen ends, there's more action.

Action Screen 2:
*The first guy approaches from the upper right. Three strike points will appear
 and you need to tap each one. Hold your stylus near the hinge and tap his
 forehead mark, then mouth, then arm. One clean line.
*The next guy appears to the left of the first. Four marks appear. Two are on
 his face, two by his shoulder. Go to the far left as he approaches and tap
 them from left to right.
*Now, for the bottom of the screen. Swing the stylus point left. The strike
 points here will appear only after you hit the previous strike point in the
 chain. So hit them as they appear from left to right.

Action Screen 3:
*The first apepars on the left, the three trike points are lined up. Stick near
 the middle left and strike him from mouth to hand in rapid succesion.
*The next panel is on the right. Move the stylus to the right and keeop it near
 the lower right. The first point is on his mouth and you can head up from
 there to complete the chain.
*The next guy's in the middle. Stay near the total centre of the screen and
 poke out his eyes when he appears. Don't miss the strike point in the lower
 left of his panel.

Action Screen 4:
*The first guy is in the top left corner. His first strike point will appear
 above his eye, the next to his left, and the third beneath his right eye. Hit
 them in order, quickly, as he has a very small timer.
*The next shmuck isn't so bad. He appears directly below. He has a strike
 point on his mouth and forehead. Both are very close, so pick your own start.
*The final panel appears on the righthand side. Keep your stylus near the top
 centre of the screen and start with the point between his eyes. Follow the
 line down and to the right.

Action Screen 5:
*One panel. Keep your stylus near the left hand side and tap the first strike
 point when it's ready. As you make your way right, the points get thicker.
 Pick the top or bottom and clear all of them out before going to the other
 side of the screen.

Action Screen 6:
*Again, one panel. The strike points will appear from left to right so start on
 the left and make your way right. Even though some will appear in the centre
 when you near the right, finish your path and come back in on the new strike
 points.

 After the first pass, most points appear near the middle.

Action Screen 7:
~Ken's finally reached his goal. He faces off against Zeed. Want to break Lin
 into pieces and shove her down my throat? Forget it, you're already dead.
*The panel that appears below has Ken holding Zeed's face. Start with the
 strike point above his fingers, then get the one near the mouth and finish
 with the strike point near the upper left of his head.

Action Screen 8:
*A fullscreen panel, Ken will be hitting Zeed with his 100 cracked fist. What
 will basically happen is innumerable strike points will appear on Zeed's body
 and you must hit 50 of them to pass this panel.

 You do NOT have to hit them in any specific order to earn a perfect on this
 screen. No way. Just hit 50 before the timer runs to yellow.

 Basically, the best thing to do is hit localized points. Hit one then any new
 ones that spawn and then head to another section of the screen. You can even
 hit the points as they vanish. Stick to the biggest clusters and you should do
 fine.

There will be a few story scenes here. Wait until you see Lin and get ready for
more action.

Action Screen 9:
~On the righthand side, Lin drops from Zeed's grasp.
*In the middle, she's falling. A half circle appears here. Follow its path from
 the butt to the arrowhead.
~Ken has Lin in his arms.

Ken will now announce his attack as Zeed falls in the background.

Uh-oh! Zeed's much bigger! He takes after the Jolly Green now. It'll scroll up
to his face and the next action screen scrolls on.

Action Screen 10:
*Ken now has to be ultra slick and say something totally killer. Select the top
 (and longest) phrase to perfect this one. You're already dead Zeed!

It will now cut to a sceen showing that Zeed is finished. Ken has a new tag
along with Bat. Some guys will arrive now and torment an old man with some
seeds.

                                ---Spade---


After the screen where Spade loads his crossbow, get ready for action.

Action Screen 11:
*The first guy shows up in the lower left, two strike points appear over his
 eyes. Strike them when they're solid.
*The next guy appears on the right. His first strike point to hit is on his
 arm. Hit it then follow the chain up from his hand to his face.
*Numbered strike points. They will appear after you hit the previous point.
 His first point is on the forehead, then the shoulder pointing right, then
 near to the mouth. Pre-empt them.

Action Screen 12:
*The upper left corner is the first to appear. Hit the points on the chin and
 neck. No problem.
*The next guy dominates the righthand side. Start near his temple then chain
 the points going down.
*The third is in the lower left. His points appear only after you strike the
 previous. No problem, hit him in the head, then the arm, then the mouth.

Action Screen 13:
*Start near the lower left. This guy with the knight helmet quickly dies as you
 follow the chain of three up.
*This one appears on the righthand side. Start from the upper right and travel
 down his face hitting the strike points.
*For the goof in the Thor helmet, start at the top of his head and work your
 way down. He appears in the middle.

Action Screen 14:
*A spades guy appears on the right. Keep the stylus to the upper right and hit
 the smash points along his face.
*The next guy is a club, he appears in the middle. Hit him in the top middle of
 the headm then the =eye, mouth, and cheek. That's the best combo.
*This diamond guy on the left has two strike points - the neck and below the
 eye. Stay near the middle left of the screen as he appears and hit his eye
 first, then down to the neck.

Action Screen 15:
*A knight helmet guy appears in the lower left. Stay near the lower left and
 hit his shoulder, then forehead.
*The next guy is in the lower right. The points appear in order. One near the
 mouth, one below, one above. Hit them in the order they appear.
*Numbered hits on the guy in the upper right. Hit the eye then the spot just
 below. easy.
*Now, the upper left. Hit him on the forehead first, then the spot near the
 neck.

Action Screen 16:
~Upper right. Spade is back. He aims his crossbow.
~Upper left. Ken is not impressed.
*At the bottom, Spade fires the crossbow. A half circle appears near the left
 of this panel. Complete it asap.

Ken will catch the arrow between his fingers. He hits Spade in the eye with it.

                              ---Spade Part 2---

Spade will be back for some wholesale slaughter. Him and his boys start ripping
the town up pretty handily. Kenshiro will not be pleased. After the picture of
red Kenshiro getting mad, get ready.

Action Screen 17:
*Lower left. He has two strike points and a fast-moving meter. Both are on his
 face, close together. Order doesn't matter, just stay in the lower left.
*The next guy is right above him, he starts with a numbered point on his face
 then the new ones appear as you hit them. The next two are enar the neck so
 hit them rapidly.
*This next guy fills up most of the screen. Hit his strike point on the face
 then continue around in the rhombus-shaped pathway.

Action Screen 18:
*Mr Purple Mohawk appears in the top right. He has two ordered points, just be
 ready for him.
*Up next is a guy beneath him. He has two strike points over his nips. Hit both
 of them.
*The next big guy fills up the rest of the screen. Follow his strike points
 down from the point on his arm.

Action Screen 19:
*This knight helmet guy appears ina  wedge on the left. Three strike points
 here, start between his eyes and work your way down.
*The next wedge is in the lower right - two ordered strike points. Hit him in
 the mouth, then the temple.
*Stay where you are. When the next guya rrives you can simply swing up and tap
 his two strike points.

Action Screen 20:
*The first guy appears in the middle wiuth three strike points. Start on his
 eye and make your way around the triangle.
*The next guy is on the right, his strike points appear one at a time. Hit them
 in order.
*The last guy's strike points will only appear after you hit the previous. So,
 hit his eye and any that appear thereafter.

Action Screen 21:
*Stay near the lower right, a guy with a blue mohawk appears here. Hit him in
 the mouth, then neck points.
*A helmet dude dominates the left side of the screen. He has five strike points
 in two lines - two on the bottom and three on top. Complete one line, then the
 next. There's plenty of time.
*The last guy is in the upper right. He has two points, but start at his head
 and then the mouth.

Action Screen 22:
*A ball and chain is thrown at Ken. An up arrow appears on the screen, complete
 it.
*The ball and chain comes back along the bottom. Again, an up arrow appears
 near the middle of the screen so complete it.

A scenbe will show Ken's arms caught in the chains and Spade will boast. Get
ready...

Action Screen 23:
~On the right, Spade gets ready to throw his weapon at Ken.
*On the left, it comes toward Ken. A half-circle will appear near to it. Make
 sure you complete it.
~Text.

Action Screen 24:
~The axe cuts one guy's head off.
~The ball and chain wraps around another.
*Ken has the guy wrapped up. You will see two arrows witha 15 counter. Rub the
 stylus back and forth between these two points 15 times.

The guy is pulled forward. Get ready.

Action Screen 25:
*Wait for the two bars to reach the middle circle and turn blue. At this point,
 tap the circle before the bars recede.

Action Screen 26:
~Ha, see the aftermath in the upper right.
*Spade attacks at the upper left. He has three strike points. Start at the hand
 and go around in the triangle.
*He now appears in the bottom. Stay either on the left or right near to his
 hands. When the strike points appear hit all three going from side to side.

Action Screen 27:
~Ken looks confident.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This one starts right into the action as Diamond is approached.

                                ---Diamond---

Action Screen 1:
~There's a dude hanging here.
*Diamond seems to be enjoying himself. When the green icon appears, blow into
 the mic until it gives you a rating. That'll shut this fool up. A rock to the
 chops. Poetry in motion.

Action Screen 2:
*A thug appears on the lefthand side. Two strike points, it doesn't matter
 where you start.
*Swing over to the right. This guy has three points. Start on the chin and work
 your way up to the chin.
*The middle guy has four points, and a fairly slow meter. Start on the chin, as
 the nearest strike point is farther away than the top two are from one
 another. Two quick jabs take out the two top strike points.

Action Screen 3:
*This guy witha red mohawk appears in the upper left. Two strike points - start
 at the temple then hit the mouth. He has a very fast meter.
*Stay where you are. Even though he's approaching from the right, the next guy
 stops at the bottom left. He has two easy strike points near his neck.
*Now for the bottom right, there are three strike points going from forehead to
 chin, strike them in a chain.
*The next guy's no real problem. The first point is on his mouth. Strike it en
 route to his second one.

Action Screen 4:
*Stay near the lower right. The guy here has two ordered strike points,
 starting at his mouth. Strike them then swing over to the left.
*Hit this guy on the forehead, then between the boobs, then the three points on
 the arm. Save these for last because they're clustered - easy to speed up and
 get them all.
*This guy's in the upper right. Two points appear, one after the other though
 they are not otherwise limited by one another. Even so, strike them in the
 order by which they appear.

Action Screen 5:
*Both of brown mohawk's points are on the face. Wait in the lower left for him
 to appear.
*Axe dude's got two points on his face. They're clustered, so save them for
 last. Start at the lowest point and work your way up. He appears on the right
 side of the screen.
*Stick near the mouth of the final guy as he comes onscreen. Striek the mouth,
 then the point appearing to the right then the point appearing to the left.

Action Screen 6:
*Lower right corner. Start at his arm and hit the next two points as they
 appear.
*Next guy is lower left. His first point appears on his face. Follow the
 points as they appear.
*The last guy is on the top. Four points from left to right, so go from left
 to right hitting them.

Action Screen 7:
*Diamond will attack you. You must hit the Strike Points as they appear, one
 at a time and only after the previous is hit. There are only 10 points to hit
 so take the time to let them fully appear so that you don't ruin your combo.

Action Screen 8:
*Along the top, Ken blocks Diamond's attack. Stay near the hand, a combo bar
 appears here. Follow it up and down 10 times for success.
*Now, in the lower right, Diamond is in the air. There is simply an up arrow
 here. Strike it from butt to head for success.
*Ken's fingers are in his head now. There's two strike points, one on either
 side of his head. Strike them in rapid succession as a third point will appear
 near the mouth. Strike that one to finish the screen.

Diamond falls to the ground as Ken announces his attack. He's dead. Ken
considers Shin now, aka King. The title for the chapter appears and Ken
overlooks Southern Cross with Bat. When they land from a jump, get ready for
more action screens.

                                  ---Club---

Action Screen 9:
*Guy with a green mohawk zooms into the lower right. Hit his strike point on
 the forehead and then the mouth.
*Now to the left side of the screen. Hit this scumbag in the arm point, then
 the two in the chest.
*Stay above the lower right guy's panel, centred. This will let you hit the
 strike points on the upper right guy as soon as they are available.

Action Screen 10:
*A purple mohawk guy appears in the upper right. Stay near the far right to
 hit his first point and swing left to his head when that one appears. Act
 fasta s he has a short meter.
*This big lummox dominates the left side of the screen. Five points here. Hit
 his face then make the circle around for the next four.
*Quickly swing down to the lower right, far right and hit the first strike
 point on this guy. His second appears very near to this one.

Action Screen 11:
*Stay near the upper right. Pink mohawk manhas two points at the top of his
 head, and two at the bottom. Strike em' all, top then bottom.
*This guy in the lower left has three near the right side of his body. His
 meter is slow enough that you can strike them all with fairly controlled
 taps and maintain a Perfect.
*Similarlyt, the last guy has two points and a slow meter. Hit the lower,
 then the upper.

Action Screen 12:
*Stay near the lower right. This blue mask guy has three points, one near to
 the lower right corner. Start here and make your way up and left.
*The next guy appears on the left side. Three points, almost vertically
 arranged. Start at the top and work your way down.
*Now, the centre. Again, three points on his face. Start near the chin and
 work your way up.

Action Screen 13:
*This knight mask guy appears on the left side. Stay near the lower left and
 strike the chest point before finsihing up ont he face.
*The middle. Swing right tap his forehead, then the remaining two can be hit
 in order as you make yoru way down his body.
*This dude appears on the right side. His points appear near the neck/chin.
 Whatever point you pick, just complete the triangle for the win.

Action Screen 14:
~Club dominates the righthand side.
*Lower left, Ken stops his katars. Two counter strike points appear on each
 hand. Hit them each five times to win this panel.

Action Screen 15:
*Stick near Club's forehead as he dominates the right side of the screen. Four
 strike points appear here. Hit the two upper,t hen two lower. An up arrow will
 appear near the mouth. Complete it to finish the panel.
~Ken does irreparable damage to this schmuck's neck.

Alright, Club's dead. Ken approaches the gate to Shin's tower and is blocked by
my favourite Jack, Heart.

                                  ---Heart---

Heart will laud his lard and its miraculous martial-arts killing tendencies.
Ken is not impressed. The action sequence begins now.

Action Screen 16:
*On the righthand side, Heart approaches. Numbered strike points in this case:
           (2)
      (4)(5)        So start at his hand, then the boob near the upper right,
            (3)     then the leg at the righthand side, then the other boob,
                    then between them.
  (1)
~Ha ha ha! Your punch has no effect!
*Heart looks mighty proud of himself. Let's start to bring him down a beg or
 two. Above Ken's hand there will be a counter slider. Move it left and right
 15 times to proceed.

Action Screen 17:
*Heart rages on the righthand side! Three numbered striek points for this part.
 They start below his neck and work their way down. Hit them the order in which
 they appear.
*Perhaps the hardest part of the fight. There's a diagonal slide counter above
 Ken's feet. It goes up to -30-. As longas you get it below 10 before the first
 meter runs out you should be able to finish it.

 The biggest difficulty is falling out of sequence. Make sure each time you
 slide to one side you hit the indicators on the side, so that it registers
 when you come back, naturally.

Action Screen 18:
*Scrolls down to Ken with his hand pointing into Heart's gut. There's a full
 circle to draw here. It starts at the very bottom and moves left and around
 to the right. You have PLENTY of time, so make sure you don't miss it
 especially after possibly gettinga GREAT on the previous section.

Heart is dead. Time for the main man himself. 


                                  ---Shin---

"This is madness. The fists of the north and south aren't ever supposed to
 fight, you know that!"
-Yuria

"Perhaps that was true once but now rules are meaningless. Defend yourself!"
-Shin

You will approach Shin on a set of stairs. Let's teach this self-styled "King"
a lesson, shall we? After a flashback, showing the origin of Ken's seven scars,
he cracks his knuckles. Get ready.

Action Screen 19:
*Shin starts into his Nanto attacks. When a hand glows blue, strike it to
 register a point. You have to hit 15 of them. They are slow enough that you
 can just hit them in order. However, keep an eye on the lower righthand corner
 of the screen. This one seems to be a little inconspicuous.

There will be a brief closeup of Ken before the next action screen.

Action Screen 19:
*Shin attacks again. Six hands appear on the screen. Hit each one and they will
 be destoyed with one hit each. Nice. Do it quickly.

 In the lower right, there will be three numbered strike points. These are on
 his shoulder pad. strike them in order to complete this panel.

It will briefly cut away to show Shin's shoulder pad exploding. After the
screen with Ken, Shin seemingly kills Yuria. Ken is rather pissed.

Action Screen 20:
~Ken's eye appears at the upper right.
~Ken launches his attack.
*Shin's on the lefthand side here. He has numbered Strike Points:
    (1)
    (2)       Nooo problem. Start at his forehead and follow the numbers down,
(6)(7)(8)(9)  swing back up and go left to right.
    (3)
    (4)       That may be the only issue here, remembering the horizontal
    (5)       direction after the numbers disappear.

Ken will confront Shin. The Yuria was only a doll. Shin will expound upon the
fate of Yuria, then just watch what happens. Stage over.

                              HnK3.3: Chapter 3
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, this next chapter concerns Golan. Early in these scenes you will see
Lin locked in a truck. Bat will alert Ken, and the bartender explains what
Golan is. Ken rushes out. Afte rthe chapter title, you'll see a man reaching
for his child. After Lin calls out, get ready.

                              ---Rescuing Lin---

Action Screen 1:
*Stay near the lower left. This guy has three strike points in a triangle. No
 problem. Start at his shoulder and make his way around.
*Now for the upper left. Stay near to his mouth as he appears. Hit him here,
 then the point that appears below, then the point that appears above.
*Another guy populates the lower right corner. Again, start near his head and
 complete the triangle.
*The last guy near the upper right has three points. Hit him at the neck then
 the two points at the eyes.

Action Screen 2:
*On the righthand side, there are two Golan dudes. Now, ONE point appears on
 the rightmost guy. However, I find I only get a Perfect when I complete the
 three points going down the more leftwise Golan dude first. So do those and
 strike the other guy before it times down to Great.
*This one's a little more loose because the timer's slow. Just hit the strike
 points as they appear. There are seven in total.

Action Screen 3:
*Stay near the lower right, there's a few Golan and five strike points. Get
 the two points on the right. Hit the three on the left.
*There's another panel at the upper right, start fromt he left and work your
 way right.
*This last panel times out slowly. There's two strike points on the right guy,
 and three on the left guy. Strike the guy on the right first, then the guy on
 the left. The timer moves slow, so tap accurately.

Action Screen 4:
*This one's kind of different. There's about 10 points to hit on the upper
 panel, and three on the lower panel. If you wanta  Perfect on both of these,
 start by following the points as they appear on the upper panel then switch to
 the lower panel as soon as it's ready. Once the lower panel is cleared, finish
 the top. We must do this because the lower panel's timer moves so fast.

Action Screen 5:
Note that if you miss one of the thin guys, it defaults to a thick panel.
*A thin panel appears in the middle here. Hit the two strike points almost dead
 centre int he screen.
*Another thin to the left. Strike th head first, then down near the balls.
*The thrid thin is on the right. Both points are near the face, not so bad.
*Now, a thicker panel appears on the righthand side. It's got a slower timer so
 just hit the points as they appear.
*Three strike points on this last panel, though they only appear after you hit
 the previous. The timer is slow, so just hit them as they appear with a bit of
 time provided for accuracy.

Action Screen 6:
~The Major appears with his piano wire, he wants to play you a prelude to death
 in C minor.
~Ken responds at the upper right.
*The major appears at the bottom... Hit the strike point, and another will
 appear. Hit this one and another appears where the first one was. Keep this
 up as the points appear on either side, one after the other. After 6 points,
 the panel is complete.

Action Screen 7:
*Alright, Ken will start kicking the chops off of the Major. A right arrow
 will appear, follow it. Then a left arrow appears, follow it as well. Finally,
 a left to right slider counter appears. SLide back and forth completing 20
 circuits to pass this panel.

The major is dead. Lin is rescued. However, Ken is not satisfied, Golan must
pay for their crimes.

After a little exposition regarding Golan it shows Ken's approach. Get ready.

                      ---Assault on Golan: Mad Sarge---

Action Screen 8:
*Three faces appear along the top. start hitting their strike points from one
 side to the other. There are six points.
*A small wedge appears at the bottom, near the left. If it appears while you
 still attacking the top panel, smash its singular strike point then return to
 the top.
*The next wedge appears tot he right of the previous wedge. Hit its singular
 strike point. This one may appear before the above point.
*The next wedge, at the lower right, has two strike points. Hit one, then the
 other. No problem
*The final wedge is in the lower left. Hit one point to make the final point of
 the panel appear. Finish it.

Action Screen 9:
*For the thick panel near the rightm there are four strike points aligned
 vertically, and one on the right. Hit the point on the right, then go down the
 vertical chain.
*The thin panel near the middle has two points, strike them... probably the
 closest point is at the bottom so strike that one first.
*There will be a thin panel on the far right side. Strike the two points near
 the top of it.
*The bigger panel on the left has five ordered strike points. Just hit them as
 they appear.

Action Screen 10:
*A golan will appear near the middle, left. Hit the point on his head, then his
 balls. Just stay near the middle and there should be no surprises.
*The thinner panel on the left has four points. Just strike them as they appear
 and it shouldn't be an issue.
*The same applies for the thin panel near the middle. Four points, hit them as
 they appear.
*On the right, a thicker panel, with two points. Hit the two of them taking
 time for accuracy. The timer's not so fast here.

Action Screen 11:
*The upper right has three points appearing one after the other. Hit them in
 order.
*The lower right is much the same, except it's five points. Hit them as they
 appear.
*The upper left has two Golan guys with flails. Their points appear after you
 hit the previous point, so strike the four points as they appear.
*In the lower left, there's just two points near the guy's head. Easy pickings.

Action Screen 12:
*The right side will hold a close-up face of a Golan soldier. Hit the points
 as they appear here, it usually starts from the top of his head. There are six
 points.
*Now, a panel on the left and near the middle. Three points usually appear near
 his face. Strike them in a triangular chain.
*At the far left, this guy will have up to four points on his face, appearing
 only after you strike the previous point. Hit them in order.

Action Screen 13:
*Up close with Ken, five groups of knives will fly across his chest. Strike
 each group once to progress.

Action Screen 14:
*The same pose. Hit each knife in Ken's chest about three times for it to fall
 out.

Ken will confront the Mad Sargeant. After a screen of dialogue, get ready.

Action Screen 15:
~Some more text with Ken, on the righthand side.
*Follow the arrows that appear. they seem to be left, up, down, right, left.
 But pay attention to what show sup.

Action Screen 16:
*Ken has to dodge the Sarge's thrusting knife. There are five knives, hit any
 knife that glows blue. Hitting ten of these will result in success.

Action Screen 17:
*Again, 50 hits. Again, try to hit these as they appear, but don't exclusively
 limit yourself to this. Try to stick to clusters and you should rack these up
 pretty quickly.

 So if you follow the general path of appearing strike points, while pausing to
 take advantage of clusters, there shouldn't be much issue.

The Sarge is dead. Ken opens a door, there are a lot of guys with axes. The
Colonel is here, and Ken will power up. Get ready.

                      ---Assault on Golan: The Colonel---


Action Screen 18:
*Ken's alone in the middle of a dark room. The Colonel starts his attack. Five
 sets of boomerangs will fly across the screen. Simply bash each set. You have
 a really long timer, so make sure you don't mess your combo.

Action Screen 19:
*The Colonel attacks again. This time, you're in the room again except The
 Colonel. Keep an eye on the background and you will see the Colonel pop up at
 constant intervals around Ken. You have to strike him as he appears - he
 appears slowly enough that you can just follow his path. When you strike him
 down 10 times, panel complete.

Action Screen 20:
*Ha ha, nice. There will be four strike points in total here. One per head of
 the Colonel. Strike them as they appear and you can proceed. Act quick, it's
 a long timer but also fast.

Action Screen 21:
*Your fingers are in that sucker's head. The screen will shift in and out of
 focus. When the picture is totally in focus, tap the screen to proceed.

The Colonel is dead. Stage complete. It looks like Lin is nursing on Ken's
teat... but she totally isn't!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                           ---Water Stealing Gang---

Jackal's going to try to convince Ken to join his crew. He seems like a
pleasant chap but Kenshiro doesn't think so. Jackal was one of my favourite
parts of the series, he's just so deplorable and self-serving. 

Ken wants to get some water for the village. Get ready for action when he is
in the well.

Action Screen 1:
*Ken's hand is on the ground. Wait for the two bars to turn blue and reach
 the centre. Tap the centre to proceed.
~Water! But don't relax, as Jackal's gang wants a piece.

Action Screen 2:
*For the righthand side, there's six numbered strike points here. They appear
 one at a time, so hit them in order.
*On the left, there's five strike points. There's usually three clustered at
 the bottom, so it's best to start here.

Action Screen 3:
*If the guy who -looks- like the bartender appears in the upper right, quickly
 tap the strike points as they appear.
*Dude in a blue biker helmet on the left. Hit his six points as they appear.
 The first one often appears on his privates... TEE HEE!
*Guy with a winged biker helmet in the lower right. He and his friend have
 numbered strike points. No other choice, just hit them as they appear.

Action Screen 4:
*Guy with red striped tattoo in the lower right - points appear one by one. The
 timer is too small to deviate from the norm here.
*Black mask guy in the upper right is much the same, except with four points
 and a slower timer. Take your time and strike them in order.
*The guy on the right is pretty much the same. He's a fine beared chap, I can
 relate. But he has five strike points, appearing on his arms and head. They
 seem to alternate between the two... so follow them in order or it'll be too
 long a wait for them to all appear in a cluster.

Action Screen 5:
*There's a wedge on the left with a couple of guys. tHree strike points appear
 in short order - hit them in order. they're usually too tight together to make
 a difference.
*There's a thin panel on the far right with half a dude's face. Start near the
 lowest point and then take the higher - usually the chin then temple.
*Two guys in the middle, with five strike points. The timer is slow, so
 carefully make your way from one side to the other.

Action Screen 6:
*The mook in the spitoon in the upper right has three strike points in a row.
 Follow this line down from the upper right.
*The dude with the feathered headband appears on the left with six strike
 points. Hit those clustered around his head before hitting the farther spaced
 points lower down.
*Mohawk man in the lower right has a couple of points on his arm. No problem,
 there's three of them so complete a triangular chain.

There will be a brief scene with Ken looking out over the horizon and the first
display of Rei. Jackal's gang will ride into town, and the J man himself will
brandish his blade. He will kill Toyo and Bat will reconcile with her. Get
ready.

Action Screen 7:
*There's a guy in the lower right with a black coat. Hit the four points across
 his face asap. Small timer, start from one side and work your way across.
*A crossbow guy can appear at the top. All four of his points will be clustered
 on his relatively small body, so he should be a non-issue.
*There's an eyepatch guy near the lower middle. He has three numbered strike
 points, each seems to appear near his shoulder but you've really no choice -
 hit them as they appear.
*A very small panel with a blue mohawk guy appears in the lower left. He has
 two numbered strike panels. Just hit the two of them as they appear, there's
 little room for anything else.

Action Screen 8:
*A black helmeted guy appears on the right in a large panel. The points appear
 one at a time, so just follow the leader.
*The same applies for the guy who will appear on the right. He has three
 points, but the game sets the order for you.
*The guy with the face mask in the middle has striek points that appear as the
 above do as well, but he only has two so it's not an issue. There's no room
 for them to appear anywhere other than in a nearly vertical line.

Action Screen 9:
*The thin panel nearly directly in the centre has two strike points, again they
 usually appear roughly centre. Keep your stylus centred in readiness.
*The guyw ith the yellow man on the righthand side has three strike points. Two
 usually appear near the head/arm, so start here.
*Stay about mid level for the right-middle panel. There's three strike points
 here, but usually two here.
*There's a dude on the left panel with three strike points. Start at any of
 them and work your way around the triangle.

Action Screen 10:
*A sweaty guy with a black cap in the lower left. He has numbered strike points
 but his face only occupies half of the panel so they are very close together.
*Jackal (or a look-alike in pink) on the right. Start on his shoulder, then hit
 the face at each of the five strike points.
*At the upper left, there is a guy with a biker helmet and blue fur. He has
 five strike points, four of them often appear in a diagonal line. Complete
 this line, then hit the outlier.

Action Screen 11:
*A helmeted guy with a blue plume on the right, he has a number of points which
 appear one after the other. The meter is long enough to hit them as they
 appear.
~Jackal retreats on his motorcycle!

                              ---Jackal's Gang---

Bat will come to terms with Toyo. Ken is not pleased with Jackal. After the
screen with Ken's eyes blacked out, get ready.

Action Screen 12:
*There's a cool beareded guy with sun shades in the upper left. He has three
 ordered strike point, starting with his mouth. So follow on through on them.
*The guy with the winged headband on the right has six ordered strike points.
 His meter isn't too fast and you have no choice but to finish him in the order
 they appear anyways.
*This mohawk guy in the lower left has four points all in a curve. Start at the
 closest, probably on the right, and work your way through.

Action Screen 13:
*Another guy who looks like the bartender appears in the lower right. He has
 three strike points all in a line. Hit them quickly.
*A mohawk man with a stick. He has three strike points with no specific order,
 but I normally start with his head as it's closest to any of the other panels
 preceding it.
*There's a guy with a black mask in the upper left with - again - three regular
 strike points. Hit them in any order and continue.
*The dude in the upper right has three strike points, usually aligned
 vertically... No problem, hit them up to down, or vice versa.

Action Screen 14:
*This guy dominates the screen, and he has strike points all over, about ten of
 them. Start at the hand on the righthand side, then the head, then near the
 hand on the left side, then the arm attached to this hand. Pick an efficient
 order.

Action Screen 15:
*This black-helmeted guy has three ordered strike points. As per usual, strike
 them in order. He appears on the left.
*The middle guy has six strike points, most clustered on his chest. Start with
 the lowest point, or any other outlier, then clean up on the cluster.
*The guy with the red plume has five striek points. They mostly cluster around
 the head. Hit the two (usually) outliers down below first, then clean up on
 the cluster.

Action Screen 16:
*I think this is Fox? Anyways, he has a single ponytail of hair and long
 fingernails. He appears on the irghthand side of the screen. There are eight
 points in total. Start on one hand, move to the chest, and finish it on the
 other hand.
*There's a guy on the left with a trisectional staff annd five strike points.
 These appear near the lower chest, for the most part.

                     ---Jackal and the Devil's Rebirth---

Jackal still has an ace up his sleave. Ken singles him out. You're a marked man
now Jackal. Get ready.

Action Screen 17:
*Jackal strikes out with his blade, in a wedge at the top. Two strike points
 appear on his arm. Hit them in order as you must hit one for the other to
 appear. When both are hit, a left arrow aooears. Swipe it to complete the
 panel.
~The next two panels are dialogue between Ken and Jackal.

Jackal will run off, he still has a trick for Ken. This big bugger is known as
a reincarnation of the devil. He was executed 13 times to no avail. Jackal
manipulated him into thinking they were brothers. And now Jackal's hurt and the
Devil's mighty pissed. When Ken pitches a tent with his hands, get ready.

Action Screen 18:
*The Max Power bar appears. Hit the "Explosion ball" on the end of it and tap
 it rapidly as the max power bar fills up. When you approach the end, slow down
 a little so you don't make any unwarranted taps - keep your combo.

Action Screen 19:
*The Devil dives at Ken. There will be little blue crescents appearing all over
 the screen. You must hit them as if you would strike points. There are 20 to
 hit in all. If you can manage it, hit them in the order they appear. But some
 may be invisible. You cna miss a couple and still get a perfect.

Ken jumps at the Devil's face. Get ready.

Action Screen 20:
*The devil slams his hands shut on Ken. A sliding combo bar appears over his
 hands. Complete the circuit back and forth 15 times to get to the next part.
 There is MORE to this panel than the slider so don't take this too leisurely.

 When the slider is complete, six strike points appear:
  (*)   (*)     Hit them up to down on one side, then the opposite on the
(*)       (*)   other.
  (*)   (*)

A close-up of Ken. Get ready.

Action Screen 21:
*Ken approaches the Devil's face. There's going to be 40 strike points here.
 The points will appear all over the Devil's body but there are a few counter
 strike points set in a row. Hit them three times each every time you see them-
 you will likely run out of time before you win otherwise.

 Just follow the strike points along, takle the most priority for the counters
 and the next most for clusters of points, naturally.

The Devil is dead. Jackal isn't. After the death panel, get ready...

Action Screen 22:
~Ken's face appears at the top.
*Jackal's appears at the bottom. Many strike points appear on his face, these
 are in four rough rows. I like to do the top two rows going across, then
 drop down and do the bottom two rows. You have more than enough time.

This is the end. The Devil could not stand against Indra.

Back in a town, there some chatting amongst the heroic crew. You will be
introduced to Mamiya. Get ready.

Action Screen 1:
~Mamiya will approach Ken, on the right side of the screen.
*In the upper right, Mamiya strikes. There will be a single strike poiny near
 Ken's face. Strike it.
~Ken has it between his fingers.

After some dialogue, you will see the title. You will see the Fang Clan at the
top of a cliff. Get ready.

                    ---Fang Clan Assault on the Village---

Action Screen 2:
*Two guys appear along the bottom, there's a cluster of strike points on their
 faces. Just do one face, then the other. Though the top may appear while you
 are doing this, finish them before moving on.
*The top will be covered by a single guy iwth a sword. There are seven ordered
 strike points here. There's little choice but to follow the numbers. Even
 after finishing the bottom, you will have time to follow the order and still
 get a perfect.

Action Screen 3:
*This guy takes up the whole right side, he has a bloody sword. He has seven
 strike points. Hit the cluster at the bottom before moving up.
*There's also a guy who will take up the left side of the screen. Hit the
 points clustered at his head first then work your way down.

Action Screen 4:
*A thin panel on the left with a deeply shadowed man. Six points, there's
 usually four stacked vertically. Still, do them all in a chain, as the panel
 is so thin you won't be searching around too much anyways.
*The guy on the right is deeply shadowed as well, and takes up half of the
 screen. He has seven spots. Start on his left arm and work your way around the
 circle. The arrangement doesn't require any special considerations.
*The fang clanner near the middle left has ordered strike points, five of them.
 Hit them as they appear.

Action Screen 5:
*A small guy with big claws in the upper right. If you see him, take him out
 asap as he has a fast meter. Three ordered strike points and he's gone.
*In the upper left, it's also ordered strike points, but this guy is a similar
 type of enemy in a wider panel. Take them out as they appear.
*Along the bottom is a bigger guy with a sword. Most of the ordered points
 appear on his face though the sevent appears near the sword (normally). Just
 take them as they come.

Action Screen 6:
*A thin panel dead centre, just be ready to hit the ordered strike points.
*The fang clan member that appears on the right has five ordered points and a
 longer meter. Just take them as they come.
*The lone member on the left has five normal points. Hit those clustered at
 the head first, then strike the outlier.

There will be a scene between Rei and a clan member, slicing him to ribbons.
Rei and Ken are introduced. There will be some exposition regarding Mamiya's
brother. After the flashback, Rei and Ken will be after the Fang Clan. When you
see Ken overlooking Rei surrounded by the clan, get ready...

                           ---The Fang Clan---

Action Screen 7:
*This guy has an open mouth and a close-up of his face, taking up the left side
 of the screen. There are around eight strike points. Hit the outliers, then
 hit the chain on the left of his face from top to bottom.
*This stunned looking shmuck kind of looks like the bartender, he has eight
 strike points and appears on the right of the screen. These seem to be
 normally clustered four at top and four below. Pick one, but complete it
 before moving on.

There will be one screen of dialogue between Ken and Rei.

Action Screen 8:
*The wedge on the left has two guys, and a number of strike points appearing
 one at a time. Don't let too many appear at once, just hit them as they appear
 and you'll do fine.
*The wedge on the righthand side holds one member. He is much the same, the
 strike points slowly appear over time and the timer is slow. Just hit them as
 they appear, and if he appears while you're killing the others, finish them
 before attacking this one.

Action Screen 9:
*Pretty much a view just beneath the chin of two guys in this righthand wedge.
 There's five strike points, again appearing stedily over time. Just hit them
 as they come up. Wholesale slaughter, this Fang Clan...
*Do the same for the scared looking creep in the lefthand wedge. Strike his
 six strike points as they appear.

Action Screen 10:
*A close-up scared guy in the lower left. He has three strike points, pick any
 of them then complete the chain.
*On the righthand side, this big guy attacks with his knee. He has seven points
 which appear slowly over time. Combine this with his slow meter and you have
 a leisurely mark. Take him out as the points appear.
*He appears in the upper left, looks scared as if he's jumping back. he has
 five strike points, that seem to arrange in a half circle. Start at one end
 and make your way through them. Just be ready for his appearance.

Action Screen 11:
~Rei and Ken confront Kemada, who killed Mamiya's brother.
*There will be a number of fists in this picture. A trike point appears on each
 fist. Hit them all, going up and down along each column. Complete one column
 before moving on to the next.

Rei and Ken will approach a cliff. Kiba Daio, the chief and father of the Fang
Clan will spy on them, and be told of their slaughter of the Fang Clan. Rei and
Ken meet up with Mamiya.

When they sit around the fire, get ready.

                          ---A Dance of Death---

Action Screen 12:
*While they sit around the fire, an arrow thwips onscreen. Just strike the
 point that appears in the middle of its shaft.

The attack will begin in earnest when Ken catches that arrow.

Action Screen 13:
*This guy on the righthand wedge has many strike points but they appear over
 time. Just hit them as they appear until you complete it. Though the other
 wedge will appear, leave it until this one is finished.
*Hit the points that appeared first, then start to follow the points as they
 appear along his body. Most should be clustered, so it's easy to make up time.

Action Screen 14:
*A fullscreen attack by a Fang Clan member with outstretched elbows. He has
 twelve strike points... and a long timer. Start in one corner and fan out to
 cover the whole screen as you tap the points.

Action Screen 15:
*A small sword guy on a pink background. Easy. He has three ordered strike
 points, hit them as they appear. He's on the right.
*The one on the left has swords and a blue background. His strike points are
 all localized around his chest. Easy pickings.

Action Screen 16:
*The big guy on the right has a bad eye. His points appear quickly, over time.
 Try to follow along, but if any appear next to the points you're tapping you
 may as well take them out too.
*In the lower left is a guy with long hair. His timer is slow enough that you
 can finish the big guy if he was first. Four ordered strike points, hit them
 in order as they appear.
*In the upper left it's a straight on look at a scared man. he has five strike
 points, which only appear after you hit the previous point. So go with the
 flow and hit them as they appear.

Action Screen 17:
*A big guy on the left has multiple ordered strike points. Hit them as quickly
 as you can in the order in which they appear.
*The guy on the right is the same deal, and he will start before you finish the
 other. You should finish the other quickly enough to start this guy's pattern.
 Eight points in total.

The Father of the clan has Airi, Rei's siste. He coerces Rei and Ken into
fighting one another. He points, Rei readies his stance. Rei and Ken face off
under the watch of the Fang Clan. Get ready.

Action Screen 18:
*Rei attacks Ken up high. There will be three arrows, usually left up right.
 Complete the three arrows. They stay near the two fighters so don't wander.

Action Screen 19:
*The fullest figure of Rei swiping at Ken is what we want. It's usually left
 down left, but just follow the arrows that pop up, near these figures.

Action Screen 20:
*It scrolls down, pay attention to the Rei and Ken in the lower left. Again,
 three arrows. Usually down, up, up. Just hit what appears, but if one doesn't
 seem to register it's because the next command is the same.

They stare each other down, then Rei's assault begins again.

Action Screen 21:
*See all of the hands? Hit any that lights up blue. The hand you have to watch
 out for is the one partially behind Ken's head. Strike them a sthey light up,
 a total of ten will do so.

Action Screen 22:
*Rei thrusts his hands down. A full circle will appear on each hand, well the
 second appears after you complete the first. You have two to do, but your
 timer is fairly long so don't take it fast and sloppy. Take it at a moderate
 pace to ensure accuracy.

Action Screen 23:
~They square off again at the right of the screen.
*Rei thrusts down on the left side of the screen. A full circle arow appears
 around his arm. Complete it at a moderate pace.

Ken will initiate a technique and have dialogue with Rei. Bith start attacks...
Get ready.

Action Screen 24:
*Rei strikes down with a flurry of strikes. Stay near the lower left of this
 panel and start hitting the ordered strike points as they appear. A full
 circle arrow appears to finish it, draw it a little more quickly than the
 previous ones but don't try to just scrawl it.
~Ken catches Rei's arm...
~And whaps him in the chops.

Rei and Ken drop to the ground.

                                ---Father---

Of course, this is just a ploy for Kiba Daio to release his hostage. When the
Fang CLan starts laughing, get ready.

Action Screen 25:
*Eight strike points appear on the group of Fang Clan members. Stay near the
 upper left and work your way down to the lower right, hitting them all.

Rei and Ken are back up, and start to move forward. When Ken points at Kiba
Daio, he turns to steel. Get ready.

Action Screen 26:
*Daddy strikes downward. A counter strike point appears beneath his eye. Hit it
 nine times really fast then hit the last one slow to finish him off and keep
 your combo. That's it for this panel.

Action Screen 27:
*Ken's bashed in the side of his face. A 15 counter appears under the other eye
 so start tapping it. Again, hit it 14 times in quick succession then just tap
 it for the last one.

Action Screen 28:
*Alright, there's a 20 counter near his nose. Rip into it and slow down when
 it gets to around 5. Finish it off a little more slowly and clear the panel.
~Did that elbow hurt, Papa?

Action Screen 29:
~Ken puts his hand up.
*This fool trying to headbutt you? There's charging bars here. Stay near the
 ball and when boith bars are full and blue, tap the ball for the win.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Airi is rescued and tells of her original captor - one of Ken's Hokuto brothers
which strove to become the successor and was deeply jealous when Ken was
chosen. Jagi's my favourite villain in the series, he was the cuase of perhaps
more pain for Ken than any other villain. He's delightfully manipulative.

Ken sets out for Jagi. When you come to the screen with the stone bust of Jagi,
get ready...

                      ---Gathering Information---

Action Screen 1:
~What's this Ken, Jagi has seven scars as well? This may be the sincerest form
 of flattery but I'll bet that makes you simply froth at the mouth.
*There's a group around the bust. All of the points appear on the bust. These
 strike points appear only after you hit the previous, so hit them as they
 appear.

After the next screen where he breaks the bust, get ready once again.

Action Screen 2:
*A small mohawk guy panel near the lower right, he only takes up 1/8 the screen
 so the timer is quick. Hit the three points in rapid succession as soon as
 they become available.
*The guy with goggles in the lowest right corner has three ordered strike
 points. Do it up, hit them in order.
*Red mohawk man take sup 1/4 of the screen in the lower left. Three points
 appear over time. Just him them as they come.
*Again for the guy in the upper left, a close-up of a face also taking up 1/4
 of the screen, hit the ordered strike points as they appear.
*The helmeted guy taking up the upper right corner (~1/4 the screen) has three
 strike points, though they only appear after you hit the previous. Strike them
 as they appear.

Action Screen 3:
*The gaggy guy in the black vest takes up half of the screen and has eight
 ordered strike points. Hit them allbefore going to the next panel, even though
 it'll appear before you finish.
*The points appear over time on the guy taking up the right hald of the screen.
 At least 4 will appear before you get to this panel if it is second. Hit any
 clusters then hit the new ones as they appear.

Action Screen 4:
*There's a guy attacking on the right with a green mohawk. Hit his six strike
 points appeear over time. If the top left panel appears while you are doing
 this, leave it for after if the strike points are clustered on that one.
*A dude will appear in the upper left with three points around his head. If you
 are doing another panel at the time this one arrives, wait until you finish
 that one then hit this one quickly.
*The up close face in the lower left has hit dependent strike points. Hit the
 four of them as they appear.

Action Screen 5:
*This guy takes up the whole screen, he is covered with strike points. Start at
 the wide end, the upheld arm and work your way in going up and down into the
 lower end of the wedge - the other arm. This will concentrate your efforts
 toward the end and keep a focal point.

Action Screen 6:
*The guy in the upper left with the helmet is scared. Hit the three points
 around his face quickly, as he has a short timer.
*A screaming man with a purple mohawk dominates the righthand side of the
 screen. Hit his five ordered strike points as they appear.
*The bloke with the green mohawk takes the lower left corner. Only when you hit
 one of his points will the next one appear. So hit them quick.

Kenshiro will confront Jagi. Jagi will take him up tot he roof of the building
for the battle. He recounts his frustration with Ken being chosen as the heir
to Hokuto Shinken. It shows their confrontation and it'll go back to the roof
and Jagi will be showing his face...

After the panning shot of Ken, get ready.

                               ---Jagi---

Action Screen 7:
*Jagi has his two palms forward. This can be difficult to see at times, but
 images of his palms will appear around his outstretched hands. Hit these as
 they appear. After 15 of these, screen complete.

Action Screen 8:
*Jagi unleashes a flurry of blows, and the screen goes out of focus. When the
 screen goes back in focus, tap the screen to succeed.

Action Screen 9:
*Jagi dives at Ken. Hit the arrow on his lower hand, it's usually down arrow.
 Then the arrow on his higher hand, it's usually to the left. When both of them
 are finished, four ordered strike points appear. They are usually in a simple
 square so simply follow their order around this localized space.
*In the upper left corner, there iwll be a small wedge with Jagi's head. Hit
 the three strike points that appear in front of his mask.
*When Ken's wedge comes up, he has caught some needles. The above panel will
 now have more action... Hit the counter (of 5) four times quickly and finish
 the fifth blow a little more slowly, to ensure accuracy.

Ken hammers Jagi in the face. Jagi breaks open a gas tank and it spills out
around Ken. He lights it on fire. He's going to tell Ken about how it was
truly Jagi who convinced Shin to make the powerplay for Yuria. When it shows
Ken busting his shirt, get ready.

Action Screen 10:
~At the right side of the screen, Ken explodes his shirt.
*About mid-body on Ken there will be charging bars. When both are maxed and
 blue, hit the blue ball in the centre before they recede. Ken will hit the
 ground with his fist.

The floor falls away, get ready.

Action Screen 11:
*The shot of Ken pans up. You need to pick a phrase here. It's the bottom
 phrase and equally the longest. It has two exclamation points.

We're down below with Jagi. Get ready.

Action Screen 12:
*At the right, Jagi will show you some of his Nanto on the righthand side of
 the screen. A down arrow will appear above his hand. Swipe it. Next, an up
 arrow forms beneath his hand, swipe it too.
~Ken crushes Jagi's hand in between his elbow and knee.
*A wedge flies onscreen. Jagi will have three strike points: two standard and
 one 3 counter. Hit them all fairly slowly, not too quickly as to screw up your
 combo of course. The points all appear around his helmet.

Ken kicks Jagi in the face. Get ready.

Action Screen 13:
*Jagi mounts the offensive again, both hands out. 15 strike points litter his
 body. Start at either the upper left or lower right and make your way across
 his body hitting them all.

Action Screen 14:
*The screen pans as Ken rapidly kicks Jagi. There's a vertical counter slider
 here. Move up and down between the two points for 20 repetitions and the panel
 is over. The bar appears in line with Jagi's head. Do this as rapidly as
 possible, stopping when you reach the ends of the bar... it's not as easy to
 fall out as Heart was. Clean up.

Action Screen 15:
~Ken holds his fist up to Jagi like some kind of schoolyard bully.
*Ken cracks Jagi in the kisser, there's numbered strike point shere. The first
 and second are on the two lower pics of Ken's hands, hit them. The third is
 actually a 20 counter. Hit it as quickly as possible until it gets below five,
 then finish the panel off a little more reasonably.
~Aftermath.

Ken stands over Jagi and makes a statement. After you see Jagi's eyes... get
ready for another action sequence.

Action Screen 16:
~On the right, Ken shouts.
*Near the upper centre, Ken;s fist shoots forward. There will be charging bars
 next to his fist. When they both fill up, and turn blue hit the centre circle
 before they fall back to succeed.
~Jagi is rocked in the puss.
~He flies back.

Jagi's metalwork bursts. His head begins to spurt blood as he dies but he
leaves Ken some nuggets to think about. His Hokuto brother Toki is alive?

Jagi is dead. Alas Jagi, a messy deathw as most befitting of your soul.

Ken is interested in finding Toki. He's going to try to pick up a lead. Let's
uncover the truth, shall we?

                              ---Amiba's Men---

Habu is a small man with tremendous speed, while Gyuki gets his thrills arm
wrestling over a table saw. Both of them have been manipulated in an unnatural
way for increased abilities.

Naturally, they proposition Ken and he accepts the arm-wrestling challenge. Get
ready...

Action Screen 1:
*Ken and Gyuki engage in the contest. A horizontal slide bar with a 15 counter
 appears over their locked fists. Scroll back and forth between the balls as
 quickly as possible. It's the first screen, aim for a perfect.

Action Screen 2:
*Their arms are locked over the spinning saw. A 20 counter slide bar appears
 over their hands. It is very short so rip into it quickly, only taking the
 length of the bar - don't overshoot it. This is a shorter number and a shorter
 bar than Heart so don't worry - he's no sweat.
~Ken looks determined.
*The arm wrestling panel lights up again. A down arrow appears over Gyuki's arm
 so swipe it for the win.

Gyuki's arm is totally broken, get ready.

Action Screen 3:
~Gyuki screams on the ground.
*Habu strikes forward with his staff. A right arrow appears near the top of the
 panel. Get ready for it and swipe it.

Action Screen 4:
*An empty ceiling? No, hit the images of Habu that appear. There will be four
 hits needed for a win.
*Habu will then attempt to smack Ken in the head with his staff. He has four
 strike points on his body so disregard the staff and hit those points when
 they appear instead.

Ken punches Habu in the side. The game cuts ahead a bit here and he encounters
the man said to be Toki. This man is actually Amiba.

                               ---Amiba---

When Ken starts to note the differences between this man and Toki, his emotion
will gradually turn to rage. Get ready...

Action Screen 5:
*Ken leaps at Amiba. Many strike points will appear all over Amiba. These
 appear gradually. For the most part, hit them as they appear though if a
 cluster appears around where you hit a point (even one immediately next to it)
 then take the time to hit this as well and break the sequence just a little.
 15 hits will complete the screen.

Ken's kicks wreck Amiba's shirt and he has a flashback. He's still not buying
the act, however. Get ready after the panning shot of Ken.

Action Screen 6:
~Ken speaks.
*Amiba points at Ken. Three ordered strike points appear along his face... hit
 them as they appear.

Ken unleashes a flurry, get ready.

Action Screen 7:
*Amiba is not so confident. 17 Strike points appear all over his body. Start at
 one end and quickly make your way to the other, striking them all.

Amiba falls to the ground. Get ready.

Action Screen 8:
*Amiba appears along the top of the screen. A strike point appears to each side
 of his head. Hit them both.
*Ken drives his fingers through Amiba's hands and into his head. Totally.
 Wicked.

Amiba wheels back and grabs a hostage. Get ready.

Action Screen 9:
*In the wedge on the righthand side here, Amiba steps back with his hostage. A
 full circle appears around them. Complete it quickly as the timer is not so
 slow this time.
~Ken rescues the lady fair.

Amiba take sthe opportunity to hit some of Ken's pressure points. Rei
intervenes, however, and does reveal AMiba for who he truly is. When Amiba goes
to step on Ken, get ready.

Action Screen 10:
*Ken is getting up. A max power bar appears on the screen. Tap on the starburst
 as quickly as possible until it's justa bout full then take it a little more
 slowly to finish it off.

Ken gets up. Get ready.

Action Screen 11:
*Amiba jumps at Ken. Swipe the arrow that appears over Amiba, usually a left
 arrow.
*As they connect, stay near Amiba;s upper body. Hit the three strike points
 that appear up here.

Action Screen 12:
*Ten strike points appear along Amiba's body near Ken's fists as he pummels him
 in the face and chest. Go from top to bottom or vice versa. Start with the
 singular then hit every pair on the way down.

Amiba makes one last ditch effort. He has experimented on victims to discover
new presure points, and he hits two now to grow huge muscles. Get ready.

Action Screen 13:
~Amiba's pretty buff now.
*He's ready to strike.
  (2)          (6)      This is the order I normally deal with. All points are
(4) (1)           (5)   localized in groups of four on either hand. Hit them
  (3)        (7)  (8)   all in order.

Amiba, your fingers are destroyed. After the close up of Ken's face, get ready.

Action Screen 14:
*Ken starts his one hundred cracked fist. The strike points appear gradually
 over time. You need to hit 40 of them. Unlike the previous occurences, you
 should be hitting these as the appear so quickly that they never cluster and
 you skip any.

Amiba cannot stop the attack from coming to fruition, his fingers are busted or
else he could save himself. Enjoy the trip you heartless bastard.

Ken comes to Cassandra to search for Toki.

                              ---Cassandra---

Ken, Rei, and Mamiya will approach the wailing city. After the title card, the
heroes will be upon the gates. Raiga and Fuga stop the group at the gate. Ken
will crack his knuckles, the twins move in... get ready.

Action Screen 1:
*Raiga and Fuga attack from either side. They have 6 ordered strike points
 each, with the number defaulting to one when it starts on the other twin. Just
 hit these as they appear, be fairly quick. When all twelve points are hit, two
 more appear between them. These are also ordered, hit them in order to sever
 the wire held between the twins.

Action Screen 2:
*One at a time, a 3 counter strike point will appear on each of the twin's
 faces. Now, this is a fairly quickly timed panel, but give them two rapid taps
 then a single tap to finish the counter. You don't want to reset the combo.
~Ken holds his hands out over their heads.

Ken will not kill them, as he knows they are being forced to fight. Raiga and
Fuga will let Ken pass. The Warden will come out, and wield his whips. Ken
beckons him to come. Get ready...

Action Screen 3:
*The warden lashes out with his whips. Multiple strike points appear over time
 all over the screen. Hit them as they appear, you must hit 15. You should be
 going fast enough that you won't find many (if any) clusters.

Action Screen 4:
~The warden launches his attack.
*  .'''. <''.  There is a twisted arrow here that you must follow from butt to
   '._.o'._.'  head. It is probably your first twisted arrow.
               You will want to take it slow to ensure accuracy, the timer is
               long enough to support scrutiny.

The Warden's whips are tied. He reaches for his head and pulls out some whips
with many tails. Get ready.

Action Screen 5:
*The Warden lashes out with his ludicrous whips. Again, the strike points will
 appear all over the screen. This time, again follow them in order and hit any
 that cluster this time. Two or three will often cluster together, take
 advantage of this and don't go after vanishing points. 20 points to pass.

The warden throws his weight into Ken. After the scene of Ken vanishing, he
raises some spiked walls, they have dialogue. Get ready.

Action Screen 6:
*The Warden is going to charge Ken right into that spiked wall. Six ordered
 strike points appear over his shoulder, the pattern is often as follows:
   (4)
 (1) (6) Or some variation. It's not as clear cut as a swift circle, so note
 (3) (2) the order and strike them in that order.
   (5)

Action Screen 7:
*Ken's hands are on the Warden's shoulder. Between Ken's hands there will be a
 horizontal slider counter. Go back and forth 15 times for the win, do it with
 a fair bit of velocity.

Action Screen 8:
*Ken's still has his hand here. A circle counter show sup. Now, this may be
 your first time using one of these. There are two arrowheads, which denote
 directionality. Start on one arrow head, then follow it through the circle to
 complete the circuit.

 You must do this 15 times. Do it very quickly, but not so quick as to fall out
 of the circle. You won't MISS if you fall out, but it can ruin a good combo.

Action Screen 9:
*On the irght, Ken continues to push in on the Warden's shoulder. Three counter
 strike points will appear, three hits each. Hit each twice quickly, then slow
 down for the htird hit each. The timer is short though, so go a little faster
 than usual.
~Ken digs gis fingers into the shoulder.

The Warden's helmet spurts blades. Get ready.

Action Screen 10:
*The Warden charges you. Charging bars appear on either side of his head and
 start to fill. When they have filled, are blue, and touch the centre then tap
 the ball in the centre. Flawless victory.
~Ken treats the Warden's head as putty.

Action Screen 11:
*Ken unleashes a flurry of blows, a multitude of strike points appear over the
 Warden. It's not necessary to pick any particular side. Just pick the left or
 the right and hit the points up and down as you head toward the other side.

The Warden is dead. Now to find Toki.

                                 ---Toki--

How will Ken find Toki in mazelike Cassandra? The screen cuts to Toki now as he
is held by swordpoint. Get ready.

Action Screen 12:
*As Toki sits there, five strike points appear in star formation on the wall.
 Hit each of them and a 5 counter strike point will appear in the centre. Hit
 it four times quickly, then a gentle tap to finish.

Ken has broken down the wall, kind of like the wall in Riki-Oh, YOU ARE ALL
FREE NOW!!! I wonder if there's a correlation? North Star's influence is
clearly evident. Anyways, the sword guys turn to face Ken. Get ready.

Action Screen 13:
*There are ten ordered strike points here, though the pattern is exceptionaly
 easy. 1-5 goes up one of the guys and 6-10 goes down the other. Clean up.

They're dead, and thus ends this short chapter. Toki will greet Ken and they
will talk.

                              HnK3.9: Chapter 9
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's time to take on the fourth Hokuto brother, Raoh. Toki will be talking by
the fire. Mamiya will approach and sit beside him.

                              ---Raoh's Army---

When Mamiya starts to walk by the cliff, a man in black will approach her along
the wall. This is Seeker, get ready.

Action Screen 1:
*Seeker rudely sticks his tongue out at Mamiya. At his forehead there will be a
 5 counter strike point. Hit it four times quickly, then tap it to finish it.
 Swipe the down arrow that appears to clear the panel.
~Ken steps on his head.

Action Screen 2:
~Ken turns a bit away from Seeker.
*Seeker attacks with two clubs. He has four ordered strike points. Hit these in
 the suggested retail order as quickly as they appear. This is so you have time
 for the circles. There are two full-circles to complete after the four points.
 Take your time with these.

Action Screen 3:
*Ken has his clubs. The action takes place on Seeker's face. The strike points
 appear only have you hit the previous point. They form a square, and then go
 over the same square again so eight strike points in total. Take a reasonable
 amount of time here so as not to lose your combo.

Action Screen 4:
*Ken unleashes a flurry with the clubs. The points appear gradually but you can
 hit them as they appear. They only appear on Seeker's body and at that they
 move at such a rate that you probably won't be looking for clusters. Of course
 you should take advantage of any that present themselves. There's twenty
 points in total.

Ken and Mamiya talk. Rei will show up and the title card is displayed. Toki,
Ken, and Mamiya approach a small hutt. It is inhabited by a very tall little
old lady. The group relax, but the woman is actually Raoh's cross-dresing
assassin (seriously)! Heavens to murgatroyd! Get ready.

Action Screen 5:
*On the right, the Giant Hag attacks a casually relaxing Ken. Get ready as two
 strike points appear on his bossom. Hit them before the very fast timer runs
 out.
*Ken's legs are scissoring his foe's face. There are two charging bars near to
 his feet. When the bars are light blue and reach the centre, hit the centre to
 pass the screen.

That's it for this one. Ken runs out to the streets and confronts Raoh.

                                 ---Raoh---

Raoh sits aloft on his his horse, the Black King. Rei is impaled on his finger.
Ken will confront Raoh, Bat and Lin are also here. Get ready...

Action Screen 6:
*King Raoh thrusts his hand forward. He will throw very faint slash marks
 forward... Hit 15 of these to pass. They can be hard to see, but they appear
 at a steady rate. They aren't localized, so hit them in the order they appear
 and failing that hit the closest neighbour to the most recently dispatched.

Ken blocks the attack. Raoh rears back on his Horse. Get ready.

Action Screen 7:
*Ken's arms become a blur... This is a very large spiral arrow looping in on
 itself. Start and end are clearly marked. This can be taken fairly slowly -
 and as well it should so you don't fall out of the line. However, if you're
 confident you can take the more open stretches a little more quickly, slowing
 down for the curves.

Action Screen 8:
*Ken's flying into form here. A full circle slider counter appears around him.
 Start at one head and follow the direction it points. You need 15 revolutions
 here. The circle is large and broad, take it fairly quickly.

Raging auras. Get ready.

Action Screen 9:
*The two fighters confront one another in the air.
    (2)            This is the pattern of ordered strike points I get. Either
 (1)               way, they have a directionality of "down" so hit them in
       (3)         the order they present as quickly as possible.
    (4) (5)
      (6)          Ken lets loose with his feet.
         (7)

Action Screen 10:
*Raoh attacks on the right. An arrow will appear on his hand, usually pointing
 right. Swipe it, then hit the two strike points near his head.
*Get ready for Raoh's outstretched arm. Ordered strike points appear as you hit
 them, there are eight of them. The eight is a 3 counter. Hit it with moderate
 speed as it is the last target in the panel anyways.

Action Screen 11:
*Raoh leaps from his horse and engages Kenshiro. A 5 counter strike point
 appears on his body. The timer is slightly fast but handle it the same as
 always. Hit it four times quickly, then finish the last.
~They land.

They are both experiencing damage... Raoh charges Ken, back on his horse. Get
ready.

Action Screen 12:
*On the righthand side of the screen, two charging bars appear over the horse's
 head. When both bars are charged and blue, hit the centre circle to pass the
 panel.
~POW! Right in the kisser. Poor horse.

Ken beckons Raoh forward, but Toki approaches. He stuns Ken with some Hokuto
and takes Raoh on himself. The screen cuts away for the fight and Raoh is
victorious. Get ready.

Action Screen 13:
~Lin kneels next to Ken.
*Ken starts to get up. A max power bar appears across the screen. Hit the
 starburst very rapidly until the charging meter reaches the "M," then take the
 last few taps more slowly for the win.

Ken's shirt explodes and he goes after Raoh.

Action Screen 14:
*Raoh charges Kenshiro, the screen will shift out of focus. When the screen
 sways back into focus - tap the screen to win the screen.

Action Screen 15:
~Raoh gushes blood.
*Raoh launches a kick. Near his foot there will be a 5 counter strike point.
 This should be, as per usual, hit four times quickly then one more controlled
 tap to finish it off.

Ken wrestles the foot with his forearm. Both fighters are taking heavy damage.

Action Screen 16:
*Ken approaches the bleeding Raoh. Eight fists appear on the screen - hit them
 all as quickly as possible, because there's more. A load of strike points will
 appear over Raoh's body. Once they're fully formed, start on Raoh's side and
 make your way into twards Ken as quickly as possible. This funneling in of
 your efforts will help keep focus and increase speed toward the end.

Neither combatant is very happy, as they stare each other down.

Action Screen 17:
*Raoh and Ken both launch attacks. Again, the screen goes out of focus... again
 wait for it to come back into focus before tapping the screen. Now, it takes
 a little while longer this time for the screen to focus so don't make your
 move prematurely or you'll be trying the screen again.

Toki will stop any further fighting. This is the end, as Raoh rides off into
the distance.

There are more chapters, albeit out of sequence. They'll be in the next section
as extra chapters...

|                         HnK4: Walkthrough Part 2                           |
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Chapter 9 is really the end of a series of pure Kenshiro levels. After that,
you get the opportunity to use Rei or Raoh, for instance. Some of these levels
are only unlocked with A or S ranks fromt he previous level as well, making
them different still fromt he first 9.

Essentially, these chapters cover everything from the Nanto Conflict with
Souther to the final showdown with Raoh. But it's told from different points of
view, so I've separated it from the continuous 9 chapters just past.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             HnK4.10: Chapter 10
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this chapter, you will be using Rei. Nanto characters play much differently
from Ken's hokuto you're so used to after all this time.

                         ---Gathering Information---

Rei's first appearance was as a woman in the desert. He is looking for
information regarding the locationb of his sister Airi. The desert bandits
would rather make lecherous and violent advances toward our favourite Nanto
master. When Rei reveals himself, get ready.

Action Screen 1:
~On the right, the thugs are taken aback.
*Rei leaps into their ranks. Two vertical slice points appear over the left and
 right and three horizontal slice points over the middle guy. Now, slice points
 are just like the arrows you used with Ken, but they can be swiped from either
 end. You can still fall off though, so take the opportunity to get these ones
 right. Start on one side, and make your way to the other.

Rei surprises the guy with the clown collar by slicing his friends to ribbons.

Action Screen 2:
*He approaches with his nunchaku. Two long vertical slice points appear near
 his arms. Quickly swipe them to do some trimming.

Action Screen 3:
*This one might take you some practice to get right. Our target looks shocked,
 two diagonal and two horizontal slice points appear here. Just line up these
 long diagonal points and swipe them quickly and stedily so as not to fall of
 the line. You won't MISS if you fall off, but you will ruin your combo. As
 such, do the diagonals before the horizontals. They're not so bad with some
 practice, so keep it up.

Rei, are you eating their food? Tsk tsk. Oh well, the chapter title card comes
up.

                             ---The Fang Clan---

Rei will approach Mamiya's village. After the scream, get ready, it's our old
pals the Fang Clan.

Action Screen 4:
*On the lefts ide of the screen, a Fang member has one horizontal, vertical,
 diagonal slice point. Take them as such: Diagonal, Verital, Horizontal. Don't
 get concerned if you can't perfect these all the time - Nanto can be tricky in
 this game. It's difficult to get a really good combo.
*Like an upper case "I" this is two horizontal slice points and one vertical.
 Take one horizontal point, then the vertical, then the last. That seems to be
 the most efficient path.

Action Screen 5:
*On the right, there a bald guy with a head band here. This is like the prior
 screen, however due to positioning do the two horizontals, then finish up on
 the vertical.
*In the upper left, a guy is flying back. He has an "X" ove rhim - two diagonal
 slice points. Swipe them quickly.
*A close-up face with a single horizontal and vertical slice point. Swipe them
 in any order, there's no most efficient here.

Action Screen 6:
*The big guy on the left with no pupils has three vertical slice points. Swipe
 them before the next guy appears.
*The guy who takes up the righthand side of the screen looks scared and has
 four horizontal slice points. Start at the top and work your way down, left to
 right, right to left, and so on.

Action Screen 7:
*In the lower left, there's a guy in 3/4 view. Two horizontal slice points,
 swipe them quickly.
*The guy from front on in the upper left has an X, hit both of these diagonal
 points quickly.
*The big guy with the scarred eye dominates the right side of the screen. He
 has two diagonal slice points and two horizontals like this:
__\_____
   \       Even though he has two separate formations, he also has a fairly
    \      slow timer. Hit the two diagonals and then the horizontals.
\    \
 \         Again, this is because diagonals are the more difficult slice
__\_____   points and the horizontals can be taken quite quickly if we have to.
   \

Action Screen 8:
*This fullscreen Fang Clan guy is attacking. Three diagonal slice points appear
 here. Swipe them from left to right.

-If you miss any, there will be other variations as well. Take them as you see
them. The biggest thing to learn is how to take slice points properly.

Kenshiro will appear onscreen at this point. Ken and Rei will discuss some
items and there will be back history on Mamiya and her brother's death. After
Rei sees her in the graveyard, get ready.

                      ---Assault on the Fang Clan---

Rei attacks the Fang in their den.

Action Screen 9:
*The little guy on the left has an "X" at his legs. Take these slice points
 first then swipe the rest.
*The little reject with the fork and knife on the right has three diagonal
 strike points. Swipe them going from top to bottom.

Action Screen 10:
*Two scared guys in the upper right, two horizontal slice points. Take them
 out.
*One close-up face in the upper left, and one diagonal slice point. Swipe it
 quickly.
*These two guys take up the whole of the bottom of the screen. Four vertical
 slice points here, take them from one side to the other.

Action Screen 11:
*The man with the bloody sword has a vertical, horizontal, and diagonal slice
 point, and he is on the right. If you're comfortable taking diagonals now, it
 is best to go horizontal, vertical, and diagonal for the most efficient kill.
*The guy on the left seem to be getting up from the ground. Three horizontal
 slice point shere. Finish him.

Action Screen 12:
*Two guys down here at the bottom, a diagonal slice point on each of their
 faces. No problem, swipe them.
*The guy on the top who is attacking has three diagonal slice points. Take out
 the two on his face, then on his arm.

Action Screen 13:
*The much shadowed guy just left of the middle, hit his two vertical slices.
*The guy on the far left with the blacked out eyes has three vertical slice
 points. Swipe them in quick succession.
*There is one diagonal bisecting to other diagonals. Hit the singular first,
 then come back to swipe the two remainders.

Ken will arrive now to. After he talks with Rei, get ready.

Action Screen 14:
*The crouching guy on the right has two diagonals. Swipe them quickly.
*The thin panel in the exact centre has one vertical point. If you see him on
 the way onto the screen, get ready for the point dead centre. Be wuick, as the
 timer is short.
*The guy crouching on the left has an X-formation of slice points. This should
 be a simple matter by now, slice him to ribbons.

Action Screen 15:
*Three short guys in a pile on the left. Hit the slice points (horizontal and
 diagonal) from top to bottom.
*The singular short guy in the righthand wedge has two vertical slice points.
 No problem, go from left to right.

Action Screen 16:
*This guy screaming in the righthand wedge is launching an attack. There's a
 horizontal slice point at the top and bottom, and a vertical slice point
 between. Start at the top horizontal and make your way down.
*This guy has a scared face and three diagonal slice points across it. You
 can win this left wedge by taking them from top to bottom.

Action Screen 17:
*This little guy gets it pretty bad, I feel sorry for him. Ha, well he has two
 clawed hands and take sup the whole screen. There's a vertical point and two
 horizontal points. Take the vertical point and then take the two horizontal
 points. They're very long, but the timer isn't super fast so keep a steady
 hand so as not to fall off them.

Action Screen 18:
*A little guy with outstretched claws, and a diagonal slice point. Swipe it. He
 is in the upper left.
*The guy in the upper right is the same, except he's a little guy with claws in
 profile. Swipe his diagonal slice point.
*The big guy with the sword between two hands has two verticals and a
 horizontal. Take one vert, then the horizontal, then the other vert.

                          ---A Dance of Death---

The Fang King watches the massacre and is not pleased that his children are
being slaughtered. Mamiya will arrive as well. Get ready when they are by the
fire.

Action Screen 19:
*An arrow flies across the screen. Swipe the diagonal slice point at the mid
 section fo the arrow.

The three will look forward. Get ready.

Action Screen 20:
*At the left wedge, hit the two vertical slice points, then finish with the
 singular horizontal.
*In the irght wedge, the but is front on and running forward. The slice points
 are shaped like a cross. Take the vertical first.

Action Screen 21:
*At the right wedge, there's two guys from a worm's eye view. Start at the top,
 hit the diagonal and then horizontal. Move to the bottom. Hit the vertical
 then horizontal.
*The drooling goof in the left wedge has three horizontal slice points. Quickly
 swipe them.

Action Screen 22:
*A guy attacks with a sword on the left over a blue background. Swipe the three
 horizontal slice points quickly as the timer is short.
*There's a guy with a sword on a pink background to the right. Slice his
 vertical point first, then the horizontal.

Action Screen 23:
*The guy in the lower left looks like he's going to stab himself in the
 privates. Swipe the horizontal point.
*The guy in the lower right holds it more like a samurai. Swipe the diagonal.
*At the top, there's two guys. Hit the diagonal slice point on the right, then
 take the two verticals.

Action Screen 24:
*Madara screams in the right panel. There's four diagonal slice points here,
 complete the longer set before the shorter.
*Madara strikes out with his claw. Hit the vertical slice point from top to
 bottom, then swipe the two horizontals.

Kiba Daio holds Airi hostage. He will force Ken and Rei to fight. After the
two martial artists square off, get ready.

Action Screen 25:
*Rei attacks. Where he launches the attack, hit down, up, down arrows that
 appear - or if they're in a different order swipe them too.

Action Screen 26:
*Near the Rei on the right, swipe the three arrows. Hit them down, up, up or
 any other variation that pops up. If one stays there after swiping, it means
 the very next arrow is the same direction.

Action Screen 27:
*Towards the lower left, above Ken's head there will be three more arrows. They
 are normally right, up, left, but hit whatever order presents itself.

We're against a cliff now.

Action Screen 28:
*Rei starts his attack. A long, convoluted arrow will follow the path of his
 hands. Take your time with this one and follow it at average from start to
 finish. In other words, take your time for accuracy. Speed up at the flat
 parts near the bottom, however.

Action Screen 29:
*A crosshatch of four diagonal strike points as Ken dodges Rei's hands. Take
 your time and get them right, the timer is at a speed where you can easily
 perfect it.

The cliff behind Ken is rather cut up. Get ready.

Action Screen 30:
~Rei prepare shis attack on the right.
*Rei thrusts his hand toward Ken. An odd arrow will appear here, it is straight
 up to a point, at which point it bends. Do the straight part quickly then slow
 down a little for the curve.

The two then initiate a certain stance. They both announce attacks so get
ready.

Action Screen 31:
*The slice points here follow Rei's hands. Swipe them all from left to right.
~Ken catches Rei's arm.
~Whaps him in the chops.

Rei presses his hand into Ken, and they both fall. The Fang Clan will start to
laugh, they have fallen for the trick. Get ready...

Action Screen 32:
*Two sets of slice points appear here. Two in the upper left and two in the
 lower right. Hit those in the upper left first, then the diagonal in the lower
 right. Finish off with the lower right horizontal slice point.

The Fang Clan falls to pieces behind the two heroes. That's it for Rei. Ken
takes on Kiba Daio personally. Airi is rescued.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This one's about Rei as well. He finds Bat with an arrow in him. Lin also falls
to the ground. Gallon is trying to take over the village. Get ready.

                                 ---Gallon---

Action Screen 1:
*Lin is being menaced. Two panels, one timer. Start on the left. Slice the long
 vertical point here, then get the three horizontal slic epoints, going back
 up. Switch over to the right panel, you're on the same timer. Again, do the
 vertical point and then do the two horizontals.

Lin looks at Rei. Get ready.

Action Screen 2:
*It's Rei's turn to make a speech choose the longest phrase (uaully on the
 bottom) that has two exclamation points.

Action Screen 3:
*There's a guy with an axe in the lower right. Two horizontal slice points
 here. Swipe them from bottom to top.
*A blonde mohawk guy in the upper right. Swipe his single diagonal slice point.
*Iron mask, pink hair, bottom left. A single vertical slice point. Swipe!
*The upper left guy has an X-formation of diagonal strike points. Both are
 small so do them in any order you please.

Action Screen 4:
*A bald guy with an awesome beard swings a blunt instrument in the top left.
 Swipe the vertical slice first, then the horizontal.
*An up close look at the same kind of awesome guy appears in the upper right.
 Two horizontal slice points here. Swipe the top, then bottom.
*The guy along the bottom has one long horizontal slice point and two smaller
 verticals. Slice the horizontal across the screen one way, then get the verts
 as you come back the other way.

Action Screen 5:
*The guy with the gold tiara has a closeup on the left. Three diagonal slice
 points here. Start at the top and work your way down.
*The dude in the blue Jason mask has a vertical point and two horizontals. As
 usual, we take out the longest first. So swipe the vertical, then the two
 horizontal branches.

Action Screen 6:
*A portly dude with a wicked nose. This is Dog Master Galf. The left, thinner
 panel verion has two vertical slice points. Take him out.
*The second larger panel has three horizontal slice points. Start at the top
 and work your way down. Poor Galf, and... no puppies? Awww...

Action Screen 7:
*A guy iwth a mask and a spear, near the middle to the left. Two horizontal
 slice points appear over him. Start at the top, work your way down.
*On the far left is a guy who wears a short horned helmet. Two vertical slice
 points on him. Start on the left, finish on the right.
*Another guy in a mask on the right, he has two diagonal strike points. Take
 a little more time with this guy so as to maintain your combo. Take the top,
 then the bottom.

Rei confronts Gallon. Gallon is a fire-eater. He will drink a load of petrol
and you need to get ready...

Action Screen 8:
*Gallon spews forth a pillar of flame. This is like most other attacks in that
 icons of flame will appear on the screen. You must tap these as they appear.
 The flame icons are dark enough that you won't miss them. Just tap those
 suckers as they show up. One thing to look out for, however, are those flames
 which appear beneath others. So keep a steady eye so they don't go unnoticed.

Rei and Gallon exchange words. Raoh watches the battle. When Gallon brings his
swords out behind Rei, get ready.

Action Screen 9:
~Rei has a few words to say.
*Gallon attacks from behind. There should be an up arrow appear over his swords
 so swipe it. Rei will jump free of his fire.

Action Screen 10:
*Gallon goes fullscreen. This looks like a terrible mess, but really it's not
 so bad. There's four diagonals, and one vertical in all. You just need to
 separate them perceptually. Start in the upper left corner and remove all of
 diagonals as you move down across the screen. Head back to the top along the
 vertical slice point for the win.

Gallon's gut is ruptured, he's dead. However, Raoh approaches Rei.

                                  ---Raoh---

Raoh stands over Rei on his horse. Get ready.

Action Screen 11:
~Rei initiates the attack.
*On the left, Raoh unleashes a flurry of blows. If a hand glows blue, strike
 it. Strike 10 of them to pass the panel. Please note the hands next to Rei
 and the lower right hand can be difficult to notice. Keep an eye on them.

Rei is thrown to the ground. Raoh makes a statement. Get ready.

Action Screen 12:
*Rei's arms are a blur. This is a long, convoluted triangle. Follow it along
 from the upper left to upper right. Move down the first stretch quickly, slow
 down for the middle "omega-shaped" curve, then finish it off fast.

Action Screen 13:
*Rei dives at Raoh. There are two slice points here, spreading out from Rei
 down to Raoh. Swipe the lower, longer one first then finish with the second
 shorter point.

Raoh flings his cape forward to cover Rei then impales him on his finger. Poor
Rei, that was action screen 13 and his luck just ran out. End of chapter.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rei vs Yuda. Let's go. After the title card, there will be a little background
on the situation. Yuda butchered Mamiya's parents, Rei will avenge her. After
the exposition, we're with Ken, Toki, and Rei. When Toki hits Rei's pressure
point, he goes to confront Yuda. Get ready.

                                 ---Yuda---

Action Screen 1:
*Yuda's goons attack Rei, one on either side. Each will have four, almost
 horizontal, diagonal slice points. They just require a tad more control. Slice
 the left guy form top to bottom, then the right guy from bottom to top.

Action Screen 2:
*There's a grinning bald man in the upper right corner. Slice his top
 horizontal point first, then the bottom. Be ready for him, his timer is fast.
*A guy with an iron mask covering his mouth appears in the top left. Stay near
 his eyes, and destroy the two diagonal slices that appear here.
*Along the bottom, there are two guys. Start on the right, he has a diagonal
 slice point. After that, the other guy;s two verticals are not a concern.

Action Screen 3:
*The short dude with shades in on the right. Hit his vertical slice first, then
 finish with the horizontals.
*A group of three men on the left. Start with the rightmost guy and work your

 the lower.
*This goon with green hair is at the very far left in a really thin panel. Get

*The same screen here. A five counter strike point appears over Yuda's face.
 Hit it four times rapidly and a little more controlled on the fifth.

Rei reaches forward. Yuda steadies himself then the ground is flooded. He wants
to kill Rei's mobility. Get ready.

Action Screen 14:
~On the right, Yuda launches his attack.
*Blade-like images will appear on rei. Hit these as they appear, and hit ten of
 them to pass the panel. They appear near Rei's legs and mostly next to one
 another. But some do appear under pre-existing blades so watch out for these
 so that they aren't missed.

Action Screen 15:
~At the top, Yuda launches a flurry.
*You now have to hit 20 blades. This is much the same as the above task but it
 is much easier to see those that appear below other blades. When they do, tap
 them until that spot is clear, otherwise follow them as they appear. Hit 20
 to pass.

Rei is mighty cut up, Yuda is mighty pleased. Get ready.

Action Screen 16:

 but take the time to do it right.

Action Screen 5:

 take too long here because it's not all she wrote. Once it is complete, three
 strike points appear over Shuh's face and hit them when they become available.

Shuh dives away, kicking Ken. He launches an assaultw ith his feet...

Action Screen 6:
*A flurry of kicks. Each foot gets an -ordered- strike point. Ten of them. They

 order for yourself, and hit them as such.

Action Screen 7:
~Ken initiates a move.
*Near Shuh's legs, up arrows will appear one ata  time. When you swipe one,

 when the timer reaches the second round, you're fine. Just do it quickly and
 steady your hand so as not to fall out.

Souther is... not injured?

Action Screen 16:
*Souther attacks from either side of Ken. A number of strike points appear all
 over his body. Hit these all quickly from right to left as it isn't all there
 is to this panel. When you complete them, to 5 counter strike points appear

attack Raoh.

 short so you can do one circuit very quickly. Slide between the two ends
 quickly, back and forth 15 times.

Now Raoh is charged as well. Nice.

Action Screen 8:
*Ken launches forward with a flurry of kicks. Strike points will appear
 gradually over time - you must hit 25. Don't worry about clusters, you should
 be following the points as they pop up. It should be at such a speed that
 clusters should not get an opportunity to form.

 over Ken's body. Hit it four times rapidly, and finish it more slowly to

 right, upper left seems to be the pattern of choice - but just hit them as

 right. Do it quickly, but make sure you're steady.

 other in rapid succession. They normally start at the top, so start here and
 hit them as they appear.

 localize, and since they appear at a speed accomodating of hitting them as
 they appear... you won't need to worry about clustered points. Hit 25 of
 these suckers as they appear.

Ken and Raoh are quite bloody.

Action Screen 20:
*They both strike out with their hands. The screen goes out of focus, when they
 come back into focus tap the screen to pass this panel.

They grin. Toki has stopped their arms. As Raoh walks away, get ready.

*Raoh's army marches onward. Groups of arrows will quickly fly across the
 screen. You need to tap 15 groups. Double tap and so on when they are beneath
 another. They move too quickly otherwise.

                          ---Shuren of the Flames---

Shuren dives at Raoh, get ready.

Action Screen 4:
*Shuren means to fry Raoh to a crisp. Not today pal. Tap the fire icons that
 appear over Shuren a stheya ppear. You need to tap 30 of these. The one thing
 to note is that they will sometimes appear beneath one another. Don't miss it!

Action Screen 5:
*At the top, Shuren attacks from behind. Three strike points appear on his hand
 so get ready for them and hit them asap.
*In the lower right, Raoh blocks the attack. A five counter full circle appears
 over the hands. Follow it around from one arrow head (in the direction it does
 point) and all the way around through it again for one full count. Do this
 five times quickly. It's a small circle, so one count is very short.
~Raoh crushes Shuren's hand.

Action Screen 6:
*On the right, Shuren kicks at Raoh. A five counter strike point appears over
 his leg. Pound it four times quickly, then hit it once more in a more
 controlled manner to maintain your combo.

Action Screen 12:
*Jyuza lets loose with a flurry of kicks. Any foot that glows blue, strike it.
 Hit them 15 times. One thing to watch out for is when the next foot to hit is
 the same one you just hit. Be ready for it.

Action Screen 13:
*Raoh has blocked Jyuza and his body is covered with ordered strike points.
   (3)
(1)   (6)  Hit them in the order that they present, such as this one. Hit the
    (4)    sixth point multiple times - it is a five counter. Hit it four times
           rapidly and then once more a little more slowly in order to maintain
    (2)    your combo.
    (5)

Action Screen 14:
*Jyuza is behind Raoh. a long curved arrow pops up. Take it with a steady hand,
 it is easy to fall out. So while you shouldn't lag on it, take it steady so
 that you don't fall out of the arrow.

fall and Jyuza charges.

 times each, and finish it off with a more controlled fifth. They appear over
 Jyuza's hands.

Both fighters take damage.

Action Screen 17:
*Jyuza opens his arms. Two charging bars appear here. Hit the centre when they
 are both full and light blue.

Jyuza wraps his legs around Raoh's arm.

Action Screen 18:
~Jyuza makes a statement.
*Jyuza twists Raoh's arm. A vertical ten slider counter appears over Jyuza's
 feet. Quickly slide it up and down 10 times, up and down constitutes one full
 count. It is small, so make sure you control your slices.

Action Screen 19:
*Raoh hammers Jyuza into a cliff. A 15 full circle counter appears above the
 body of Jyuza. Starta t an arrow head and follow its patha ll the way around
 to the same arrow head. It is small, so one count can be pretty short. Do it
 fairly quickly.
*Raoh holds Jyuza up. Hit the 3 counter strike points three times in a fairly
 controlled manner.

Jyuza is dead.

Action Screen 6:
*A helmeted chap appears top centre, hit the ordered points as they appear.

 hit the previous. Oblige him.

Action Screen 7:
*Some frightened guys on the bottom here. Hit the seven strike points in the
 order they appear as they appear over time.
*There's a group of recoiling guys at the top too, the biggest having an iron
 mask. If it starts before you finish the other, finish it first (and vice
 versa for that matter). The strike points appear over time, so hit any
 clusters then follow them as they appear.

Action Screen 8:
*A couple of guys in gladiator-style biker helmets in a wedge at the bottom,
 in the very right of it. Hit the four ordered points as they appear.

 do not forget that they are ordered.

Action Screen 10:
*This tool tosses his sword about. Hit the 12 strike points as they appear over
 time. These are permanent points, so hit them as they appear. No need to worry
 about clusters, though you -can- hit those that appear next to a point just
 hit. You will be eventually anyways.

                                 ---Raoh---

Ken reaches the tower but is met by Raoh. The folks inside move to evacuate

*Raoh charges Ken. Hit his eight strike points from top to bottom.
~Ken attacks.

 his leg. Hit them quick in their order because the timer is short.
*Ken blocks Raoh's foot. A horizontal slider counter appears here. It is small,
 so make your counts in short, controlled bursts. You must make 15 counts.

Action Screen 13:
*Raoh attacks. Two ten counter strike points appear over his fists. Hit each
 9 times very quickly then make the tenth hit a more controlled tap - to
 maintain yoru combo of course.

Action Screen 14:
*Raoh's fist is bugger than Ken's body. He's as much of a Flintstone's kid as
 Zeed. A horizontal counter slider appears here. Again, it's 15 counts. It's a
 longer bar this time so you will have to rock him with faster wipes. Keep it
 controlled, still.
*The fist still comes for Ken. This is the same deal as the above description,
 handle the fifteen counter slider in a constant speedy back and forth motion.

Action Screen 15:
*Ken kicks at Raoh. Nine strike points appear over Raoh's body. These are
 ordered, often as such:
  (9)
    (7)  Make your move, but note their order. Hit them quickly.
(1)
    (3)
(5)(6)
(4)(2)
 (8)

Rei catches Ken's foor and tosses it aside.

Action Screen 16:
*On the right, Raoh moves to make paste of Ken's face. A spiral will appear
 here. You NEED to be controlled on this because though it is a spiral
 convoluted arrow, it has 90 degree angles. Make a steady path from start to
 finish, slowing down at each turn. Take the stark turn and keep going. There
 is not enough space to truly speed up, but don't slow down too considerably.

 Try for a perfect, but don't feel bad about a Great, especially if you've done
 well up to this point.

      3  ^     This diagrams a possible plan:
   +----+|     (1) Start out fairly quickly, stop at the curve.
   |  4 || 5   (2) Make yoru way up fairly quickly to 3.
 2 |+---+|     (3) Slow down to about 3/4 speed here.
   |+----+     (4) Slow down to 1/2 speed going into the section 4, then 1/4
   +-----()        for the double right angles.
      1        (5) Back to 3/4 going into (5), finish at full speed.
~Ken moves.
~Raoh misses.

Raoh hits the ground. He pulls his hand out, get ready.

Action Screen 17:
*Raoh's fist flies forward. These arrows will appear one after the other: left,
 left, left, down, down. Just hit any arrow that presents itself. If it looks
 like it's just staying there, the next arrow is simply the same kind.
~Raoh misses.

As Ken begins to conjure the images of those fallen, Raoh strikes again.

Action Screen 18:
*Raoh strikes. Many strike points appear over his hand. Hit them very quickly
 from top to bottom. Get ready for a long, convoluted triangle.

        (1)        (1) Start out very fast, let's say "2x speed"
    +---------()   (2) Slow down to 1/2x speed for this curve.
(2) |   (3)        (3) Take the straight at 2x speed and slow to 1/2 to turn.
    +--------+     (4) Take this at 1.5x speed.
         +-+ |     (5) The remainder will be at 1/2x speed.
    <--+ | | | (4)
       | | | |     You have plenty of time to do it, but don;t get cocky. Any
       +-+ +-+     mistake will cost you.
         (5)

Action Screen 19:
~Raoh approaches once more.
*Three diagonal slice points appear over Raoh. Swipe them all in fast
 succession. They are no trouble, just be -ready for them- as slice points
 are uncommon in Hokuto levels.

Ken has recalled another fallen, Rei. There will be a flashback to after Raoh
killed Ryuken. Then, many fallen appear with Ken. Raoh is visibly shook. Get
ready.

Action Screen 20:
*As Raoh flails, his hands will light up blue. Hit them as they light up and
 after 15, this panel is passed.
*But that's not all. 8 ordered strike points will appear over Raoh.
(3)  (7)  (4)
   (1)  (2)    Note the order and quickly follow it.
(5)  (8)  (6)

Action Screen 21:
*Kens arms are a blur. A long curving arrow will appear here. Take the first
 curved section fairly steady. Speed up along the bottom, then finish at a
 slower pace once more. Well, slower than speedinga long the bottom that is.

Raoh stomps the ground. While Ken is knocked out of the way of debris by
Rihaku. Raoh goes on to fight Fudoh.

"Alright, if you're that eager to die I'll oblige you. Anytime you're ready"
-Raoh

Fudoh of the Mountain lies dying. These are his last moments.

Black King. The title card is displayed.

Ken confronts Raoh. Raoh discards his new white cape (I hope he uses Tide).
Get ready.

Action Screen 1:
*Raoh's hands are a blur. When a hand turns blue, tap it. You will need to do
 so for 15 of these hands.

Action Screen 2:
*Wow the screen's goen negative. A truly convoluted triangle appears over Raoh.
 Learn to take this one somewhat quickly. Steady your hand and take each
 section as a quick slicing movement. When you reach curve, picot and slice
 once more.

Action Screen 3:
*Ken's afterimage appears all around Raoh. Strike points will appear all over
 his body over time. Hit them as they appear. They should never cluster. You
 should be moving so quick as to hit them as theys how up, and besides his
 body is small enough that you will never have to search for a point.
*Now, twelve points appear on his body. Hit them all from top to bottom, and
 with expediency
*Now, 9 strike points appear on his back, they are ordere:

    (1)
(2)     (5)   Note the order, then strike it as such.
   (3)(4)
   (6)(7)
(8)     (9)

Raoh bleeds.

Action Screen 4:
~Ken thrusts his fist forward.
*Ken attacks. A 20 counter strike point appears over Raoh;s head. Pummel it
 into hamburger. Quickly tap it until it falls below 5, then finish it off in
 a more controlled manner. Yes, to maintain your combo.

They pass, and exchange words. Raoh points to a captive Yuria. He blasts the
stone hand she rests within.

Action Screen 5:
*Yuria plummets. A half circle appears beneath her head. Quickly swipe it.
~Ken rescues his lady from certain splat.

Raoh is not finished, however. He recaps some previous events. Get ready.

Action Screen 6:
*The two charge. The screen goes negative. This is again a very twisted
 triangle and like before, we are doing this in fast swipes. Start fast and
 slow down at a curve. Pivot and slash to the next curve. 

Action Screen 7:
*The two pass in an attack. All over Raoh;s body, strike points will appear
 over time. Hit them as they appear, you need to hit twenty of them. Hit them
 with enough frequency that they should never cluster. Besides, they're
 localized to his body so you don't have to search anyways.
*Same screen, done again. Raoh gets 10 ordered strike points.
 (9) (4)
(3)     (7)
   (1)    (1)      Note the order, then exploit it.
 (6)
     (8) (2)
            (5)
*Raoh's body is covered with 19 strike points. Start at his outstretched arm
 and move across tot he right taking out the top two rows of strike points.
 From here, move down to his leg.

Both fighters fall. They have both taken heavy damage. Raoh gets up and
charges Ken.

Action Screen 8:
*Raoh digs his fist into Ken. A horizontal slider counter appears over Ken. Do
 this one as fast as possible, quickly burst between sides so the count from
 10 to 0 before the timer runs halfway out of the Perfect terriory. This is
 because a counter strike point will appear over Raoh. It counts to 10. Tap it
 as rapidly as possible, slow down at the end only if you won't lose your
 perfect because of it.

Action Screen 9:
*Ken hammer Raoh in the gut. Hit the strike points that appear from top to
 bottom.

Raoh drops Ken, but Ken isn't out that easily.

Action Screen 10:
*Ken stands up. Pound the starburst that appears on the max power bar until it
 reaches the Letter M. At this point, slow down to maintain your combo.

Action Screen 11:
*Ken strikes at Raoh. Over time, strike points appear and disappear on Raoh's
 body. Hit them as they appear. Since there are 40 of them, you have no choice
 but to try it this way because otherwise you will lose your perfect. So there
 shouldn't be any clusters anyways. The only points that might be missed are
 those on Raoh's outstretched arm, keep an eye out.

Raoh powers up. They will have dialogue. When Raoh's body glows, get ready.

Action Screen 12:
*Raoh makes his move. The screen goes out of focus. _BEWARE_ the first time it
 starts back in is a red herring. It will _NOT_ focus. You have to wait until
 it starts back into focus a second time. Hit it when it is back in focus.

Ken cracks Raoh in the chest. Raoh is down. He hits pressure points in his leg
and manages to stand.

He charges, but can't follow through. Watch the final scenes here. I'll say
no more.

                             HnK4.22: Chapter 22
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This level catalogues the final battle between Raoh and Ken form Raoh's
perspective. It's the final round. You need to ace level 21 to get here though.

Raoh will abduct Yuria. The title card displays. Raoh strikes a pressure point
on Yuria's neck then carries her away.

Ken approaches Raoh on Raoh's horse. Rah tosses aside his nice white cape, no
regard for stains. Get ready.

                               ---Kenshiro---

Action Screen 1:
*Raoh moves his hands. This is a long convoluted arrow. Take the first part
 fairly steady and quick, slow down for the curve, speed up at this point, and
 slow down at the curve to the head.

Action Screen 2:
*Raoh moves in with his fist. Nine strike points appear over Ken's body. Hit
 them all from top to bottom.

Ken's afterimages are manifold. While Ken had many commands to do here, Raoh
has none. Raoh takes the worst of this exchange.

Action Screen 3:
~Ken holds his fist out.
*He moves in on Raoh. A much convolyted triangle appears here. Now, like in
 chapter 21 you need to learn to do this quickly. For the long stretches, make
 a quick slice tot he turn, slow down for the turn and the small stretch, then
 make a quick slice to the next turn. It can be hard to learn, but it's the
 way to go for this kind of arrow.

Action Screen 4:
*At the top wedge, Ken follows through with his fist. Four strike points appear
 over his hand. Pick one, then chain them around in a circle.
~They pass.

Ken's fingers bleed. Raoh points to the hand of a statue. Yuria is aptive here.
Raoh will blast the hand, so get ready.

Action Screen 5:
*Raoh blasts the hand. An arrow will follow it along. Steady your hand and take
 it in one long swipe.

Yuria falls and Ken catches her. They're soon back to fighting however.

Action Screen 6:
*Raoh and Ken charge one another and the screen goes negative. Another
 convoluted arrow appears here. However for this one, take it as slice-pivot-
 slice-pivot-slice-pivot and so on. Start the slices quickly and slow down as
 you come in to pivot.

Action Screen 7:
*Raoh and Ken pass each other here. Twelve strike points occur over Ken's body.
 Start at his head and fan out as you head down.
*Another 18 points appear on Ken. Do this one the same way. Quickly finish each
 row of strike points as you go from head to legs.
*Another 21 points. Again, rapidly tap them from head to legs.

They both pass and both fall.

Action Screen 8:
~They are both back up.
*On the left, Raoh charges. Over Ken there will be two charging bars. When they
 are both full, reach the middle, and are blue - tap the centre.

Raoh smashed Ken in the breast, though Ken retaliates with the same. Get ready.

Action Screen 9:
*Where Ken's hand connects with Raoh's chest there will appear a ten horizontal
 counter slider. Slide this one back and forth very fast, you want to finish it
 before the timer reaches halfway to Great. When the ten count is gone, a ten
 counter strike point appears over Ken. Forget finesse, in the interest of time
 just slam it ten times as quickly as possible.

Action Screen 10:
*Raoh chops. When two bars appear over Ken, let them charge. When they are full
 and reach the centre and are blue, strike the centre.
~Ken drops.

Ken powers up.

Action Screen 11:
*Kens trikes Raoh in the chest. Strike points will appear over Ken over time.
 Strike them as quickly as possible - you must hit 40 of them. You must hit
 them as they appear -quickly- if you hope to get a perfect here. Remember that
 they can also occur on Ken's outstretched arm so don't miss them.

Action Screen 12:
*Raoh attempts to get back up. There is a ten counter full circle here. Start
 at one arrow, steady your hadm and take it around ten times as fast as
 possible. You have to really go fast if you want to get this perfect.
~Raoh is back up.

There will be some dialogue.

Action Screen 13:
*Raoh holds his arms out. A large spiral arrow appears over Raoh's body. Start
 in the middle and start out slow. As the stretches become longer, speed up.

Action Screen 14:
*Raoh is glowing. A 15 counter full circle appears over him. Starta t one arrow
 and follow it around. You need to go fast, though you can be more steady than
 the ten counter previously.

Ken hits Raoh in the chest, this does critical damage.

Action Screen 15:
~Raoh starts to get back up.
*He hits some pressure points in his leg. Two strike points appear around knee
 level, hit them asap.

Action Screen 16:
*Raoh is back up. Slam the max power bar's starburst as rapidly as possible
 until it reaches the letter M. At this point, slow down a little so you can
 maintain your combo.

Raoh is steadied. He rushes toward Ken, but won't follow through.

Action Screen 17:
~Raoh reaches out.
*Raoh must choose a phrase for his twilight. Choose the shortest phrase with
 two exclamation points.

Ken goe sover to Yuria.

Action Screen 18:
~Raoh makes a statement.
*He lifts his arms high up. Follow this convoluted arrow at a moderate pace.
 Do it steady, but not slow.

Action Screen 19:
*Raoh glows. A 15 counter full circle appears above his chest. Take it around
 very quickly - it is only small.

Action Screen 20:
*Raoh strikes his chest. Hit the four strike points, two on each hand, that
 appear very quickly.
~Raoh is feeling it.

Now, the credits. Congrats!

Thanks to Spike for a terrific Hokuto game. I was concerned, but it's a very
entertaining game. Kudos!

Many thanks to Tetsuo Hara and Buronson, who brought this world alive to begin
with. Really guys, Hokuto is something special and I'm glad you gave it to
the world in the way you did.

Thanks to my older brother for turning me onto Fist of the North Star in the
first place. I don't know if I'd have ever found it otherwise. Who knows, I may
have got caught up in one of the recent fads or something. Ah well, thanks for
no years lost.

Thanks to my younger brother as he enjoys Fist as much as the rest of us. So
thanks for bringing even more enthusiasm to this series.

Thanks to Raoh's horse. You're my main homie, bro. You are so brave. You can
fly through the air with the greatest of ease. Sometimes I kind of feel sorry
that you are resigned to life as a mount, rather than emperor as you truly
should be. Keep it real man.

Thanks of course go out to my hosts, as without them you would not be reading
this guide.
