    2. Intro
    ------------- 
    Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my guide. This guide will 
    teach you all I know about using ninja borgs in Gotcha force. Ninjas are 
    fast 
    borgs, much like ninjas in real life, they enjoy killing things.  I hope you 
    enjoy using ninja borgs as much as I do and find this guide useful, anyways 
    hereís the guide. 
    -------------
    3. Overall strategy
    -------------
        When using ninja borgs focus on dodging. If they canít hit you they 
    canít win. The best way to dodge is to dash. You can dash by pressing any 
    direction on the control stick, if you do this to slowly you will just stat 
    running and not perform a dash. An air dash works the same way, but you must 
    be in the air. You can repeat air dashing as many times as you want with all 
    the ninjas except cyber ninja. Cyber ninja uses a booster jump, which limits 
    how far and high he can go when flying. Use attacks that have range whilst 
    ground dodging, this will do some damage and annoy your opponent. However 
    most of the ranged attacks that ninjas use are weak so you will have to use 
    melee attacks to do heavy damage. To safely get close enough to use melee 
    attacks run around your opponent and slowly move in. This will let you avoid 
    most ranged attacks and allow you get close enough to do melee attacks.

    4. Ninja list and strategies
    --------------
    Note: All stats are for the level 1borg. 
    
    Normal ninja
    Cost: 150
    Hp: 150
    Def: 2
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 3
    Speed: 5
    Attacks:
    B: (melee attack) Shinobi Gatana 
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10)
    X: Shinobi bomb (ammo: 5)
    This is the most basic of ninjas but still a great borg. There are two good 
    strategies for this guy. The first strategy is to run around your target 
    while throwing shuriken, this will allow you to slowly move in for a melee 
    attack. The other strategy is to jump and air dash above your opponent and 
    hit them with the powerful sword drop, to perform a sword drop press ďBĒ 
    while above your target. If the dodge throw a bomb and run away, then 
    repeat.
    
    
    Double ninja
    Cost: 210
    Hp: 150
    Def: 2
    Shot: 3
    Attack: 3
    Speed: 5
    Attacks:
    B: (melee attack) Shinobi Gatana 
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10)
    X: Shinobi bomb (ammo: 5)
    X: (charge attack) Ninpo Kage Bunshin
    Use him, or you might say them, the same way as normal ninja except get to a 
    safe place and use Ninpo Kage Bunshin. When you use this attack you will 
    have 
    2 ninjas and do double damage! If you get hit by a strong enough attack your 
    clone will disappear and you will have to charge the attack again.
    
    
    
    
    Arrow ninja
    Cost: 300
    Hp: 180
    Def: 2
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 3
    Speed: 5
    Attacks:
    B: (melee attack) Kunai
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10)
    X: Nipo Kagenui Arrow (ammo: 8)
    Sick of flying borgs shooting your poor ninja from above and dodging all of 
    your shuriken? The arrow ninja can render those pretty wings useless with 
    his Nipo Kagenui Arrow. 
    Just get one arrow in them and its all over (for them not you). 
    If they are high up wait till they are at the lowest point that 
    the arrow will allow, then fire another arrow you can do this repeatedly and 
    get them on ground level then finish them off with some melee attacks. If 
    you have an ally they can use this chance to use a slow, strong attack.
    With ground borgs just shoot them with an arrow. After hit they canít move 
    much and you can do heavy damage. When fighting fortress borgs jump 
    on top of them and use the melee attack while performing a ground 
    dash.
    
    Shuriken Ninja
    Cost: 310
    Hp: 200
    Def: 2
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 6
    Speed: 5
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) Shinobi Physical Attack
    B: shuriken (ammo: 30)
    X: shuriken cutter
    One of the strongest ninjas, he has 30 shuriken and his cutter attack can 
    kill nearly any thing quickly. He is a little slow in the air so it might be 
    wise to keep him on the ground. Try to get close to your opponent whilst 
    throwing shuriken , then when you are within striking distance use shuriken 
    cutter followed by another, repeat this until they are dead (wait until the 
    circle around your target is red to attack again).
    
    Acceleration ninja
    Cost 380
    Hp: 200
    Def: 3
    Shot: 3
    Attack: 4
    Speed: 9
    Attacks:
    B: Kamaitachi (ammo: 5)
    B: (charge) Hidare Kamaitachi
    X: Ninpo Full Throttle
    Can you say fast? This borg can out run nearly any borg with his Ninpo Full 
    Throttle which makes him run at top speed and damages any thing he hits. 
    This can be hard to control at first but lets you avoid almost any attack 
    when mastered. As soon as the battle starts use Ninpo Full Throttle and 
    charge 
    Hidare Kamaitachi. Move towards your opponent and either release the B 
    button and charge it again followed by X to retreat or run into them then 
    repeat.
    If you must fight a fortress borg use Hidare Kamaitachi as often as you can. 
    Note: If you hit a borg whilst performing an air dash or jump they will take 
    damage.
    
    Teleport ninja
    Cost: 400
    Hp: 200
    Def: 4
    Shot: 3
    Attack: 4
    Speed: 7
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) arm cutter
    B: Double Kamaitachi (ammo: 5)
    X: Nipo teleport (ammo: 2)
    X: (charge) teleport slash
    Use him as a mid to close range borg as his Double Kamaitachi has poor aim 
    and little ammo, only use it to distract your opponent . His real strength 
    lies in
    His teleport slash. Charge it up, get in range, and release. The nipo 
    teleport is useful for dodging. Remember: how far you dodge depends how fast 
    you are moving. The arm cutter is best used right after a teleport slash.
    For fortress borgs jump on them and abuse the teleport slash.
    
    Switching ninja (2 data crystals)
    Cost: 380
    Hp: 200
    Def: 4
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 3
    Speed: 7
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) Shinobi Claw
    B: Crescent Kamaitachi (ammo: 5)
    X: Nipo change (ammo: 1)
    This ninja is strange, his Crescent Kamaitachi is nearly useless and his 
    nipo change is very hard to hit with, but donít give up, nipo charge can be 
    a very annoying attack if you take the time to master this guy. Use 
    nipo change during an air dash above your target then when you switch dash 
    forwards jump and repeat. Nipo change works against flying borgs as they can 
    be forced to land but require good timing.
    
    Flame ninja (2 data crystals)
    Cost: 590
    Hp: 250
    Def: 3
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 6
    Speed: 5
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) flame thrower 
    B: fire ball (ammo: 10)
    X: Ninpo Dragon Explosion (ammo: 1)
    Donít play with fire, because you might get burned. This borg has an 
    amazingly strong melee attack, it might be the most powerful melee attack in 
    the game! A three hit flame attack that has some range. Focus on getting 
    Nipo Dragon Explosion works best against dragon, fortress, tank, angel, 
    wing, and air borgs. When you use it on flying borgs make sure that you are 
    facing them when you execute that attack, this should knock them out of the 
    air and allow you to hit with the flame thrower. 
    Note: If you do a melee attack whilst performing a ground dash you wonít use 
    flame thrower, but do a weaker, slower, and harder to aim upper cut.  
    
    
    Cyber ninja (3 data crystals)
    Cost: 640
    Hp: 300
    Def: 4
    Shot: 5
    Attack: 5
    Speed: 10
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) cyber karate 
    B: Shinobi beam (ammo: 4)
    B: (charge) plasma tackle 
    X: beam shuriken (ammo: 2)
    This is the only ninja with a boost jump. While not a traditional ninja this 
    guy can kick some serious tail. His cyber karate is a strong multi-hit 
    attack but donít rely on this too much, only when you can risk getting hit 
    as it comes out slow. Shinobi beam fires a swift beam that does nice damage 
    for a ranged attack. Plasma tackle isnít worth the time it takes to charge, 
    only use it to annoy people in one on one battles. Beam shuriken, one of my 
    favorite attacks, launches four large, homing shurikens that can do heavy 
    damage if they all hit. To use this borg well just keep moving and spamming 
    the ranged attacks use the ground dash and air dash instead of running. 
    
    Shijima (4 data crystals)
    Cost: 300
    Hp: 210
    Def: 2
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 3
    Speed: 5
    Attacks:
    B: (melee attack) Kunai
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10 increases with level)
    X: Nipo Kagenui Arrow (ammo: 8)
    Use him just like arrow ninja. The only difference is that Shijima has more 
    HP and gains more ammo when he levels up.
    
    
    Sasuke (4 data crystals)
    Cost: 150
    Hp: 180
    Def: 2
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 3
    Speed: 5
    Attack:
    B: (melee) Tsunujinartu
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10 increases with level)
    X: shinobi bomb (ammo: 5)
    At first glance this is just a cooler looking ninja with an hp boost, but he 
    has different melee attacks. The shuriken is the same as normal ninjas 
    except as Sasuke levels up he gains more ammo, the shinobi bomb is the same 
    as normal ninjas, but Tsunujinartu is not the same as the normal ninjas 
    melee attack, if you perform this melee attack while doing a ground dash 
    Sasuke will do a spinning sword attack! And when level with your target in 
    the air he performs a kick that spikes them down. Move in for a spinning 
    sword attack every chance you get, but donít forget to dodge. If fighting a 
    flying borg (besides air borgs) Jump next to them, spike them down, and use 
    the sword drop. Remember: you must be above them for a sword drop. Use this 
    attack against fortress borgs.
    -----------------
    Death borgs
    -----------------
    While not considered true ninjas, death borg alpha and death borg alpha II 
    act just like them. 
    
    Death borg alpha
    Cost: 80
    Hp: 50
    Def: 1
    Shot: 1
    Attack: 2
    Speed: 4
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) blade
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10 increases with level)
    Cheap, but useful this borg should be treated like a normal ninja, but 
    without the bombs. If you rely on the bombs while playing as normal ninja 
    then it would be best to avoid this guy.
    
    
    
    Death borgs alpha II
    Cost: 110
    Hp: 60
    Def: 1
    Shot: 2
    Attack: 2
    Speed: 4
    Attacks:
    B: (melee) blade
    B: shuriken (ammo: 10 increases with level)
    X: bomb (ammo: 5)
    This borg works like a double ninja, except you donít have to charge an 
    attack to get the most use.
    
    -----------------
    6. Counter strategy
    -----------------
    Most borgs Are slower than ninjas which can make it hard for them to hit. 
    Try to use attacks with good range and knock back to keep the pesky 
    assassins out of melee range.
