==2. [Intro]==

Naruto is a great action/platform game based on the anime and manga by
KISHIMOTO Masashi. It's a quick play, but, although others may not agree, has
great replay value. If you enjoy the game, I suggest you give the manga a read.
It's currently available in America in Shonen Jump by Viz.

This guide intends to be a full walkthrough, strategy guide, and reference for
Naruto for the Gameboy Advance. Corrections, suggestions, and comments are
appreciated and encouraged! If you have a better way of doing something, tell
me! My contact information is at the end of the document.

Anyway, thanks for reading this, and good luck with the game!

==3. [Characters]==

+UZUMAKI Naruto
Naruto is one of the two characters that can be used at the beginning. He is
not as fast as Sasuke or Kakashi, but his chakra charges faster than Sasuke's,
and his jutsu are more powerful.

+UCHIHA Sasuke
Sasuke is one of the two characters that can be used at the beginning. His
speed is his only real merit, because his jutsu are so weak. Playing as Sasuke
gives the hardest game.

+HATAKE Kakashi
Kakashi is unlocked after winning the game with Naruto and Sasuke. He jumps
the highest and moves most quickly. He also charges his chakra the fastest.
His jutsu are powerful, and he is by far the easiest game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==4. [Controls]==
A: Jump
B: Attack
B(Hold): Charge chakra
R: Throw projectile
R(Hold): Use scroll
Direction(Left or right, tap twice): Dash

==5. [Walkthrough]==
+Level 1 - Bridge

Stage 1
Items found:   Leaf Village Symbols (7)
               Throwing Needles (1)
               Kunai (1)
Enemies found: Chuunin (4)
               Female ninja (2)
               Crow (1)
Allies found:  Sakura

Walkthrough: A Chuunin will almost immediately come running at you. Take
care of him, then head to the right. Kill the female ninja, grab the throwing
needles, kill another ninja. Drop yourself down into the hole to get the leaf
symbols. When you get out of the hole, kill the crow before he attacks you.
Going right again, there are two more Chuunin to beat before dropping into the
next hole. You can go left in the hole to get some kunai if you'd like, but
be sure to go to the right and have Sakura heal you. Outside the hole, kill
the Chuunin on the edge, then head right a little more to the boss fight.

Boss: Ebisu & Konohamaru
In this fight, Konohamaru stays on the ground using "camouflage" and
attempting Sexy no Jutsu. Ebisu goes between the two tree platforms and the
ground, usually behind Konohamaru to yell at him. If you're using Naruto,
just use Harem no Jutsu to defeat him instantly. Otherwise, avoid Konohamaru
and wait for Ebisu to come to the ground. When he does, throw projectiles at
him and try to hit with a jutsu or two. This battle isn't too hard, so you
should be able to defeat the pair quickly.

Stage 2
Items found:   Leaf Village Symbols (7)
               Kunai (1)
               Throwing Needles (1)
Enemies found: Snake (1)
               Female Ninja (1)
               Crow (1)
               Chuunin (4)
Allies found:  Hinata

Walkthrough: Crouch and throw shuriken to kill the snake right off the bat.
Head to the right, killing the female ninja and picking up throwing needles.
Throw needles at the crow and snake, then crawl down underground. Take care
of the chuunin to your left, then keep going. Hinata heals you in the large
cave area, and there's another chuunin to take care of. Jump over to get
the leaf symbol, then head back to the right. When you get to the wall,
dash up, then go to the platform on the left to kill two chuunin and grab
some leaf symbols. Finished? Good, now head over to the boss fight on the
left.

Boss: Ino
Ino is a two-trick pony. She either jumps around throwing things at you or
attempts her mind control jutsu. When she uses her jutsu, try to jump over
her spirit. If it hits you, Shikamaru and Chouji come out to do some damage.
You can't take her jutsu more than a couple of times, or, with the combination
of her projectiles, you'll be out quick. Dodging the spirit isn't too hard,
though, so after some fist-fighting and jutsu, you should have her beat.


+Level 2 - Mountain

Stage 1
Items found:   Lightning Scroll (1)
               Leaf Village Symbols (7)
               Help books (2)
               Kunai (1)
               1UP (1)
Enemies found: Chuunin (3)
               Female Ninja (2)
               Crow (1)
               Snake (3)
Allies found:  Sakura
               Iruka

Walkthrough: Take care of the chuunin that is there to begin with, then
dash up the wall to the right. Pick up the lightning scroll, then hold R
and release to destroy the rock wall. Drop straight down, and use the scroll
on the rocks in the small crawlway to get the leaf inside. Drop down and
to the left, blowing up the walls, grabbing the leaf symbols, and killing
the enemy, then dash up the wall at the left. That will take you up to the
top of the level, where you'll basically start over. Dash up the wall
again and jump across to kill the chuunin. Blow up the wall on the left
side of the platform to find Sakura waiting to heal you. There's a kunai
up here, too. After getting healed, drop down to fight a female ninja, then
dash up the wall. There's a crow and another chuunin, so take care of them.
Drop down to fight a female ninja, then head over to the right, down, and
start making your way to the left. You'll blow up a few walls and kill
three snakes. Jump over the spikes, grabbing the leaf, then jump onto the
top of the forking crawlways. Crawl through to get a leaf symbol, then
dash up the wall, jump to the right, blow up the rock wall to find Iruka
with a 1UP, then crawl through the hole after you blow up the rocks. Dash
up the right wall, go to the left to get the last leaf symbol, then head
over to Chouji.

Boss: Chouji
Chouji is a joke. Just use higher level jutsu to wear him down. After a
while, he'll use his multi-size jutsu. Just dash up one of the sides to wait
it out and let your chakra refill. Oh, and he throws potato chips at you,
too.

Stage 2
Items found:   Lightning Scroll (1)
               Leaf Village Symbols (7)
               Throwing Needles (1)
               Kunai (1)
Enemies found: Chuunin (2)
               Female Ninja (2)
               Jounin (1)
               Snake (2)
               Crow (5)
Allies found:  Hinata

Walkthrough: Go across the bridge to get the scroll. Destroy the wall and
fight the chuunin, making sure not to fall down into a pit. Grab the leaf
before continuing. Destroy the next wall and fight the female ninja. Again,
grab the leaf and go on. Another female ninja. Beat her, grab the leaf--be
careful, the pits are in different places than the last two--and go on. Kill
the Chuunin and the Jounin. Drop down to get the leaf, and while you're down
there, kill a snake and get healed by Hinata behind the wall. Go back up, dash
up the wall near the arrow, but go to the left. With throwing needles in hand,
get ready to kill five crows. Once you've passed them all, drop down to get a
kunai, a leaf behind a wall, and a leaf behind some rocks at the bottom. Head
out through the crawlway, kill the snake, and head through the level to fight
Shikamaru.

Boss: Shikamaru
Shikamaru fights hand-to-hand mostly, but he throws projectiles occasionally.
Most of the time, he's trying to get close enough to use Shadow Copy no Jutsu.
When he tries to use it, you'll have a split-second to dash or jump out of his
range. Take advantage of that. If you avoid his jutsu and use a couple of your
own jutsu, he shouldn't be very hard.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+Level 3 - Meadows

Stage 1
Items found:   Earth Scroll (1)
               Leaf Village Symbol (7)
               Throwing Needles (1)
               Kunai (1)
Enemies found: Chuunin (6)
               Jounin (2)
               Bat (7)
               Snake (6)
               Female Ninja (1)
               Crow (4)
Allies found:  Sakura

Walkthrough: Run across the top of this level, defeating 4 chuunin, a Jounin,
and a couple of crows. After that, destroy the far left light patch of ground
with the Earth Scroll. Drop down, kill the bats, take the leaf, go right.
Kill some snakes until you get to the open area. Grab the throwing needles,
get healed by Sakura, and kill the bats. Go out through the crawlway, and
dash up the wall. Go to the left, kill the female ninja, dash up the tree to
get the leaf, and go back around through the tunnel. You'll fight two crows,
two chuunin, and a Jounin. There's a kunai along the way. There are two
light patches of ground to destroy. Each hole has a critter or few and a leaf
symbol. Got them all? Okay, charge up your chakra and get ready for Rock Lee!

Boss: Rock Lee
Right off the bat use a couple of high level jutsu. Lee will call Gai-sensei
to come heal him. Your chakra will recharge a bit during this, so whenever
you regain control, use a couple of high level jutsu again. When you're out of
chakra, you'll have to start fighting hand-to-hand. Lee will often go for his
Initial Lotus, but you can dodge that rather easily. A somewhat easy strategy
is to dash in, get a few punches in, then dash out. Repeat. Lee isn't that
tough.

Stage 2
Items found:   Earth Scroll (1)
               Leaf Village Symbol (7)
               Kunai (1)
               Throwing Needles (1)
               Shuriken (1)
Enemies found: Bat (4)
               Female Ninja (3)
               Chuunin (4)
               Snake (3)
               Assassin (2)
               Jounin (1)
Allies found:  Anko
               Hinata
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Walkthrough: Grab the Earth Scroll. Go hunt yourself 2 Chuunin, two female
ninja, and an assassin by the tree. Grab those throwing needles too. Uncover
the first hole to the left and hop in. Go right to the leaf, then left, but
just use the Earth Scroll twice to take the bats and female ninja out of
commission. Dash up the wall now to get a leaf. Jump off onto the tree to get
a 1UP from Anko. The next hole just has a leaf. The next has a couple of
snakes and a kunai. If you prefer the kunai to the throwing needles, go grab
it. The next hole is the way we have to go. Kill the two bats and head right.
Dash up the right wall, then dash up the left, but jump off before you get
stuck with the shuriken again! Go run cleanup again. Two chuunin, an
assassin, and a Jounin this time. First hole to the left has a leaf by the
entrance, Hinata in the middle, and another leaf on the other side. Also,
there are two snakes in there. Next hole has a leaf. Head on to Haku.

Boss: Haku
Use a jutsu at the beginning. Haku throws needles very quickly, so it's hard
to find a chance to use a jutsu. Haku has two jutsu. The first is an ice
explosion under you, which you can dodge. For the other, Haku dashes at you,
and if he grabs you, you'll be the victim of Ice Mirrors for major damage.
Fortunately, you can dodge that one too. When you need to use a jutsu, rush
Haku and knock him down. Immediately start charging after that. Haku's main
strength is his speed, but you can beat him as long as he doesn't hit you with
too many needles and jutsu.

+Level 4 - Forest

Stage 1
Items found:   Fire Scroll (1)
               Throwing Needles (1)
               Leaf Village Symbol (7)
               Shuriken (1)
               Kunai (1)
Enemies found: Worm (5)
               Snake (4)
               Assassin (7)
Allies found:  Sakura
               Kurenai
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Walkthrough: Grab the throwing needles and use them to kill the green worm
hiding in the tree above the Fire Scroll. After he's done, grab the scroll.
Drop down through the fake spikes to the left to get a leaf symbol. Now dash
back up, burn the tree, and kill the worm. Burn the next tree to be greeted by
an assassin and a snake. Dash up the next wall and head left past an assassin
to get a leaf. Now head back right, grab a leaf, kill the assassin, and jump
to the next tree. A leaf, an assassin, and Sakura are hanging out here. Drop
down to the lower level and kill an assassin. Go left, kill a worm, grab the
leaf, and drop through the fake spikes. Kill the snakes, burn the trees, and
be rewarded with a 1UP by the beautiful Kurenai. Head back up and go the way
the arrows point. There's a worm to kill before the drop. Burn the tree and
defeat the assassin. Head up and burn another tree. Kill the worm before
jumping down through the fake spikes. Grab the leaf, and the kunai if you
want, and get back up to kill the assassin. Dash up and to the left to get
the last leaf in this stage, and go fight Kiba.

Boss: Kiba & Akamaru
If you're Naruto, use your Level 3 Red jutsu. Naruto will fart and use Uzumaki
Naruto Rendan for an instant victory. If you aren't using Naruto, get ready
for an annoying fight. Use your high level jutsu to open with, because you
probably won't get a chance to charge chakra often. Kiba turns his dog into a
clone of himself. When he's done this, they can use a highly damaging move that
is somewhat hard to dodge. The only thing you can do is try to beat up on them.
If you hit Akamaru enough, he'll turn back into a dog, and the team will not
be able to use their hard-hitting jutsu. Just hope your initial jutsu work
well, and that you can get good hits in.

Stage 2
Items found:   Fire Scroll (1)
               Leaf Symbol (7)
               Shuriken (1)

Enemies found: Worm (8)
               Snake (2)
               Assassin (8)
               Female Ninja (4)
Allies found:  Hinata

Walkthrough: Dash left to get the Fire Scroll and kill the worm that drops.
Drop down, burn some trees, kill some snakes, and jump over the spikes. Head
up and to the right, kill a worm and burn the tree. On the other side, there's
an assassin, a worm, and a leaf. Head left. Kill the assassin and burn the
tree. Kill the three worms with the Fire Scroll, then dash up and to the left.
Grab the leaf after defeating the female ninja. Heading right again, there's
a female ninja. After finishing her, grab the leaf and kill another female
ninja. Jump across the gap to another female ninja and leaf. Drop down to the
left with the assassin and a leaf. Next, head to the right to kill a worm.
Burn the tree, kill the assassin, you know the drill. After the last tree
is Hinata waiting to heal you. Now go drop down, being careful of the spikes
and the assassin. Grab the kunai if you want and head right. Two assassins
later, dash up the wall to grab a leaf. Jump across to the left to kill a
worm and yet another assassin. Dash up and to the right, and get ready
to fight Rock Lee again.

Boss: Rock Lee
Same as the previous fight. I don't even know why they repeated him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

+Level 5 - Leaf Village 1

Stage 1
Items found:   Throwing Needles (1)
               Water Scroll (1)

               Jounin (5)
               Crow (2)
               Assassin (2)

Walkthrough: Go to the right and grab the needles. Jump over the fire and
dash up to the ledge on the right to grab the water scroll. Put out the fires
and jump up to the platform on the left. Kill the chuunin and grab the leaf.
Jump over to the next platform, kill the chuunin, and drop down. Go left,
putting out the fire on the way. Kill the two Jounin and get the leaf. Go
left some more. Go through the crawlway and kill the Jounin and take the
leaf. Head back outside and go through the crawlway on the right. Get rid
of the Jounin, then go over the top of the platform to get the leaf on the
other side. Head back over to the left. Go to the next floor up. Kill the
Chuunin. Go up to the next floor and get the Chuunin. Next floor up is a
female ninja, and there's another female ninja on a platform to your left.
Go to the right and drop down and to the left to get another leaf. Put out
the fire and jump up to the platform on the right. Kill the crow and take
the leaf. Back down and to the right you go. Over to the left past the gap
is an assassin and a kunai. Take the kunai if you'd like, and head down and
to the right. Beat the Jounin, and throw projectiles at the Chuunin on the
other side of the wall to kill him. Crawl under and keep heading right.
Dash up the wall and get off at the next floor. Kill the assassin and get
the leaf. Go up all the way now to kill a crow and fight Shino.

Boss: Shino
Use your jutsu at the beginning of the fight. Shino will send bugs after you,
so you'll have to dodge them or use the water scroll to knock them out of the
air. The former is better, since you'll want to save your chakra for a jutsu.
When you've run out of chakra, just jump in and start swinging. Shino can be
easy, or difficult depending on how much damage your jutsu do and the actions
Shino takes.

Stage 2
Items found:   Water Scroll (1)
               Throwing needles (1)
               Leaf Village Symbol (7)
               Kunai (1)
Enemies found: Crow (8)
               Jounin (1)
               Female Ninja (4)
               Chuunin (4)
               Assassin (3)

Walkthrough: Immediately kill the two crows with jump attacks. Go right and
under the crawlway to fight a Jounin and get the Water Scroll. Head up and
kill the female ninja and grab the throwing needles. Go back to the left,
dash up the wall, and jump off to get the leaf. Dash up again to the top left
of the screen to kill a crow and get another leaf. Jump across the gap,
staying on the top level, to the next platform. Kill the chuunin and the
two crows and get the leaf. Go back to the left and drop to the next level.
Kill the chuunin. Go right and kill the assassin. Grab the leaf and kill the
assassin and female ninja. Drop down and head to the left. Kill the female
ninja and get the leaf. Go back to the right and dash up the wall. Kill the
two Chuunin. Head up and right to kill three crows. Drop down one level and
get the leaf. Drop down another level to kill the assassin. Put out the fire
and get the leaf. Now go to the right and kill the female ninja. Head up the
couple of platforms. There's a kunai on the top level. Now go to the right
for the boss fight.

Boss: Neji
Neji really isn't that hard. Use your jutsu at the beginning of the match to
knock his health down, then just dash in and keep hitting him. His punches
drain chakra, but since you've already done damage to him, you don't need to
use more jutsu. You'll both be eating away at each other's health, but you'll
come out ahead since he had less to start with. If he uses his jutsu, he can
get in some major damage, so you'll have to beat him to the punch, pun
intended. I know, I'm horrible. Leave me alone.

+Level 6 - Leaf Village 2

Items found:   Wind Scroll (1)
               Leaf Village Symbol (7)
               Green Scroll (1)
               Shuriken (1)                
Enemies found: Snake (2)
               Female Ninja (2)
               Assassin (4)
               Chuunin (4)
               Jounin (2)
Allies found:  Sakura
               Kakashi

Walkthrough: Drop down all the way and kill a snake on the right. Then
grab the Wind Scroll and go back to the left. Use the wind scroll to get to
the top level. Kill the female ninja there and grab the leaf. Drop down
a level and kill the assassin. Crawl down and fight the Chuunin and the
Jounin. Grab the leaf. Now go back to the left and use the wind scroll to
get you to the platform on the right. Crawl through and use the scroll
again to bring you up to the left. Kill the Chuunin and get the leaf. Jump
across to the right. Fight the Chuunin and get healed by Sakura. Now go
back inside the building and to the right. Use the scroll to bring you up.
Now use the scroll again to get you across the gap. Kill the assassin and
get the leaf. Head down and right, now. Kill the Chuunin and Jounin. Go to
the right and through the crawlway. Kill the snake and grab the leaf, the
green scroll, the shuriken, and get the 1UP from Kakashi. Go left and up.
There's an assassin on the left. Kill him. Use the scroll again to get you
up to the top left. Kill the female ninja and get the leaf. Use the scroll
to get you across the gap. Drop down and head past the assassin to the leaf.
Now go fight the boss.

Boss: Temari
Temari's pretty difficult. She sends small whirlwinds in your direction
faster than you can start charging chakra, so it's hard to get a jutsu off.
At least at this point in the game, you have your fourth-level jutsu. That
will help a WHOLE lot. When you jump in for close range combat, she'll
knock you with her fan or use her jutsu, which sends a tall whirlwind toward
you that only Kakashi can jump over. Don't even try projectiles. Like Shino,
though, she can either be easy or hard. It all depends what the computer does
with her.

Stage 2
Items found:   Leaf Village Symbol (8)
               Wind Scroll (1)
               Throwing Needles (1)

               Female ninja (3)
               Chuunin (4)
               Crow (8)
               Jounin (4)
Allies found:  Hinata

Walkthrough: Jump across the gap to kill the assassin and get a leaf. Go
down and left to get another leaf. Kill the female ninja and chuunin. Grab
the Wind Scroll and use it to get up and left for another leaf. Use the
scroll twice more to bring you upright and then up-left. Kill the two crows
and the Chuunin. Get the leaf. In the top right, there is another Chuunin
and crow. Drop back down and get the throwing needles. Kill the Chuunin and
Jounin. Use the wind scroll to bring you up and left to kill the assassin.
Use the scroll again to get you across to the next platform. Grab the leaf
and use the wind scroll again to the left. Kill the crow and drop down on
the left so Hinata can heal you. Get across the gap to kill the Jounin and
the crow. Drop down and kill the assassin. Drop down and go right to kill
the Jounin and female ninja. Up and left is a kunai if you want it. Up and
right is another leaf. Up and left will bring you to a point with a Jounin,
a crow, and a leaf. Head right and drop down to get another leaf. Kill the
two crows and the female ninja. Then use the wind scroll to get past the
obstacle and to the boss.

Boss: Kankurou
Kankurou uses his puppet to attack. His jutsu animates the puppet to give it
long range to attack you. A hit to Kankurou will end the jutsu. He isn't a
very hard battle. Just make sure you end his jutsu quickly and that your
jutsu don't miss.

               Female Ninja (2)
Allies found:  Hinata

Walkthrough: Kill the Chuunin. Drop down and to the left. Kill the
Chuunin. Grab the wind scroll and throwing needles. Use the scroll
to reach the top left of the level where a leaf awaits. Dash up and right
and kill the Chuunin. Wind Scroll up to get the leaf. Drop down to the
left and get the leaf under the falling bridge. Use the scroll to get back
up. Kill the Chuunin and Jounin. Go down to the right and kill the female
ninja. Jump across to get the leaf. Dash up to the left to get a leaf and
kill a female ninja. On the right, kill a Jounin. Go to the top platform and
get the Fire Scroll. Kill the Chuunin and get the leaf. On the next level
down, there is a Jounin, a leaf, and Hinata. On the ground, there is a kunai.
Anyway, get up to the "arrowed" path. Dash up to get the leaf on the left.
Now head on over to the boss fight.

Boss: Zabuza
Zabuza has some crazy water techniques and can throw his sword like a
boomerang. Use your 4thlevel jutsu to knock his life down, then just beat on
him. He's not too tough. Also, Kakashi can use Dog Summoning for major damage.
The dogs will hit Zabuza, then Kakashi will follow up with Chidori.

Boss: Orochimaru
You start out with zero chakra here. The best way to build some is to get in
a corner and throw projectiles. That will keep him away from you. When he uses
a jutsu, one of the following will occur: a snake will come from the bottom, a
snake will come from the left, or a snake will come from the right. If you're
lucky, you can get away from those. Whenever you can, use 4thlevel jutsu.
When his health is low enough, try to use the Rock Lee strategy. It's a tough
fight, but if you win, then you've won it all. Good luck!

==6. [Enemy reference]==

+Chuunin
Mostly fights using hand-to-hand, but occasionally throws kunai. An attack
combo should take one out.

+Female Ninja
Mostly throws projectiles, but occasionally fights hand-to-hand. The opposite
of the generic chuunin. Can be defeated with an attack combo.

+Jounin
Uses hand-to-hand combat. When killed, a Jounin leaves a health pack. It takes
a few combos to get rid of them.

+Assassin
Sometimes they drop from above. Can roll into a ball to move. Uses
hand-to-hand combat and can be taken out with a combo.

+Crow
Fly back and forth, occasionally diving down to attack. One hit should do one
in.

+Bat
Move back and forth, occasionally vertically. One hit.

+Snake
Moves back and forth in a set area. One hit.

+Worm
Falls from the tree and wriggles on the ground. One hit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==7. [Boss reference]==

+Ebisu & Konohamaru
In this fight, Konohamaru stays on the ground using "camouflage" and
attempting Sexy no Jutsu. Ebisu goes between the two tree platforms and the
ground, usually behind Konohamaru to yell at him. If you're using Naruto,
just use Harem no Jutsu to defeat him instantly. Otherwise, avoid Konohamaru
and wait for Ebisu to come to the ground. When he does, throw projectiles at
him and try to hit with a jutsu or two. This battle isn't too hard, so you
should be able to defeat the pair quickly.

+Ino
Ino is a two trick pony. She either jumps around throwing things at you or
attempts her mind control jutsu. When she uses her jutsu, try to jump over
her spirit. If it hits you, Shikamaru and Chouji come out to do some damage.
You can't take her jutsu more than a couple of times, or, with the combination
of her projectiles, you'll be out quick. Dodging the spirit isn't too hard,
though, so after some fist fighting and jutsu, you should have her beat.

+Chouji
Chouji is a joke. Just use higher level jutsu to wear him down. After a
while, he'll use his multi-size jutsu. Just dash up one of the sides to wait
it out and let your chakra refill. Oh, and he throws potato chips at you,
too.

+Shikamaru
Shikamaru fights hand-to-hand mostly, but he throws projectiles occasionally.
Most of the time, he's trying to get close enough to use Shadow Copy no Jutsu.
When he tries to use it, you'll have a split-second to dash or jump out of his
range. Take advantage of that. If you avoid his jutsu and use a couple of your
own jutsu, he shouldn't be very hard.

+Rock Lee
Right off the bat use a couple of high level jutsu. Lee will call Gai-sensei
to come heal him. Your chakra will recharge a bit during this, so whenever
you regain control, use a couple of high level jutsu again. When you're out of
chakra, you'll have to start fighting hand-to-hand. Lee will often go for his
Initial Lotus, but you can dodge that rather easily. A somewhat easy strategy
is to dash in, get a few punches in, then dash out. Repeat. Lee isn't that
tough.

+Haku
Use a jutsu at the beginning. Haku throws needles very quickly, so it's hard
to find a chance to use a jutsu. Haku has two jutsu. The first is an ice
explosion under you, which you can dodge. For the other, Haku dashes at you,
and if he grabs you, you'll be the victim of Ice Mirrors for major damage.
Fortunately, you can dodge that one too. When you need to use a jutsu, rush
Haku and knock him down. Immediately start charging after that. Haku's main
strength is his speed, but you can beat him as long as he doesn't hit you with
too many needles and jutsu.

+Kiba & Akamaru
If you're Naruto, use your Level 3 Red jutsu. Naruto will fart and use Uzumaki
Naruto Rendan for an instant victory. If you aren't using Naruto, get ready
for an annoying fight. Use your high level jutsu to open with, because you
probably won't get a chance to charge chakra often. Kiba turns his dog into a
clone of himself. When he's done this, they can use a highly damaging move that
is somewhat hard to dodge. The only thing you can do is try to beat up on them.
If you hit Akamaru enough, he'll turn back into a dog, and the team will not
be able to use their hard-hitting jutsu. Just hope your initial jutsu work
well, and that you can get good hits in.

+Shino
Use your jutsu at the beginning of the fight. Shino will send bugs after you,
so you'll have to dodge them or use the water scroll to knock them out of the
air. The former is better, since you'll want to save your chakra for a jutsu.
When you've run out of chakra, just jump in and start swinging. Shino can be
easy, or difficult depending on how much damage your jutsu do and the actions
Shino takes.

+Neji
Neji really isn't that hard. Use your jutsu at the beginning of the match to
knock his health down, then just dash in and keep hitting him. His punches
drain chakra, but since you've already done damage to him, you don't need to
use more jutsu. You'll both be eating away at each other's health, but you'll
come out ahead since he had less to start with. If he uses his jutsu, he can
get in some major damage, so you'll have to beat him to the punch, pun
intended. I know, I'm horrible. Leave me alone.

+Temari
Temari's pretty difficult. She sends small whirlwinds in your direction
faster than you can start charging chakra, so it's hard to get a jutsu off.
At least at this point in the game, you have your fourth-level jutsu. That
will help a WHOLE lot. When you jump in for close range combat, she'll
knock you with her fan or use her jutsu, which sends a tall whirlwind toward
you that only Kakashi can jump over. Don't even try projectiles. Like Shino,
though, she can either be easy or hard. It all depends what the computer does
with her.

+Kankurou
Kankurou uses his puppet to attack. His jutsu animates the puppet to give it
long range to attack you. A hit to Kankurou will end the jutsu. He isn't a
very hard battle. Just make sure you end his jutsu quickly and that your
jutsu don't miss.

+Zabuza
Zabuza has some crazy water techniques and can throw his sword like a
boomerang. Use your 4thlevel jutsu to knock his life down, then just beat on
him. He's not too tough. Also, Kakashi can use Dog Summoning for major damage.
The dogs will hit Zabuza, then Kakashi will follow up with Chidori.

+Orochimaru
You start out with zero chakra here. The best way to build some is to get in
a corner and throw projectiles. That will keep him away from you. When he uses
a jutsu, one of the following will occur: a snake will come from the bottom, a
snake will come from the left, or a snake will come from the right. If you're
lucky, you can get away from those. Whenever you can, use 4thlevel jutsu.
When his health is low enough, try to use the Rock Lee strategy. It's a tough
fight, but if you win, then you've won it all. Good luck!

+Gaara
Gaara likes to stay in one place. When he puts up his sand shield, don't bother
attacking. Just use it as an opportunity to regain chakra. When he attacks, he
uses sand hands from the ground. Just try to use level four jutsu and get in
attacks when you can.
