    Part 1: Introduction
    Hiya all! This is my first attempt at a FAQ, so bear
    with me if it sucks....
    Now this FAQ could be more in depth, featuring things
    like the storyline, and dialouge from the game, but
    since the copy I own is a japanese rom, your SOL if
    youre lookin for that sort of stuff....Sorry. I will try
    to add to this FAQ as much as possible, and make it
    the best FAQ out there for all you samurai pizza cats
    lovers! Now, to the rest of my FAQ. I hope you enjoy

    Part 3: FAQ
    Here I will answer some frequently asked questions
    about this game, if I should add more stuff to it,
    just tell me, and I'll add them when I have time.
    Q: What do all the bars on the screen mean?
    A: The hearts are your health, the little meter with
    the solid red bar is your ninpo meter, and the big bar
    with lots of little lines is your helper meter.
    Q: Ninpo? WTF?
    A: Ninpo is the special attacks powers of each of the
    cats. Every character has three different ninpo
    attacks, and they can be used by pressing UP+A. They
    can only be used though until the ninpo meter runs
    Q: AHHHHHHH! My ninpo is gone and I'm almost to a
    boss! What do I do?!?!?
    A: Don't panic, you can find ninpo refill items laying
    around in some levels, and you can sometimes get them
    by killing these freaky white and green flying
    thingies that drop items. You can also find health and
    helper refill items in the same ways.
    Q: Why can I only use one of my three ninpo attacks?
    A: Because you have not fond the ninpo powerups yet.
    There funny little items with a japanese mark on them,
    you can't miss them. When you pick one up, it will
    upgrade your ninpo power to the next attack. Sorry,
    but you can only use one of the three attacks at one
    Q: What are helpers, and what do they do?
    A: There supporting characters in the game with
    special abilities that, well, HELP. You can access
    them by pressing start at any time and selecting one.
    They can punch through rocks, swim super fast, drill
    through things, and even fly! They also have there
    very own separate ninpo attacks, but there only able
    to be used until the helper meter runs out, which it
    can also be refilled by finding helper refill items,
    which I have already explained how to find them.
    Q: Which character is really the best?
    A: Well, that's all a matter of opinion. Even though
    you can have a favorite cat if you want, all the cats
    are useful in different situations, and it's up to you
    to choose which one does which thing at what time.
    Well, that's all the questions I could think up at the
    moment. Remember to tell me if you think of any more
    for me to add! Now onto the next section....
    Part 4: Secrets/Hints/Tips/Assorted Things
    Ok, here I will try to post you some tips and secrets
    to help you beat this game easily. These aren't codes,
    and I don't know of any Game Genie codes, so please
    don't ask me about them. Sorry. If you think of any
    other tips, remember to tell me!!! Well then, here we
    1.There are many secret areas in this game. Go find
    them, they carry some extremely good items in them!
    2. If you use your most powerful ninpo attacks on a
    boss, it doesn't matter where you stand, it will
    always hit them, even if it doesn't look like it.
    1.Remember those secret areas I talked about? Well,
    almost every secret area is only accessible by using
    your helper abilities, so remember to keep your helper
    meter filled at all times!
    1.Only one tip for this section, but it's a good one.
    All items on screen will regenerate if you go off the
    screen the item was on, and then go back onto it. It
    also means those freaky looking item dropping bird
    thingies will regenerate as well. 
    That's all for this section of the FAQ! I hope it was
    useful, but onto the next section!
    Section 5: Walkthrough
    Here's the part we have all been waiting for, the
    walkthrough!!! This is where I will tell you all the
    best things to do to beat each stage, and become a
    Samurai Pizza Cats Champion! I'll tell you the best
    characters to use, the best ninpo attacks, and I'll
    rate the difficulty of each level on a scale of 1-5,
    one being easiest, 2 being easy, 3 being medium, 4
    being hard, and 5 being insane. Now the recommended
    character part is hard, because I don't know there
    names.....*Anime Style Sweatdrops* So I'm going by
    looks...I think I can find there names, and if I do,
    I'll add them....
    Bout 1: The aliens attack
    Difficulty: 1 (Easiest)
    Recommended Character: White Pizza Cat
    Ok then, this level is easy, with a capital E. It's
    like the first level in most video games, built to
    teach you the basics of the game. Use the white pizza
    cat, because he is the basic character for the game,
    while the other two regular cats are more complicated
    to use, fight through til the end, and watch out for
    the exploding enemies. Make sure to power up your
    ninpo all the way, and near the end of the level, you
    will be in a section with a heart item in it, and
    there's a rock blocking your progress. Just change to
    the pizza cat helper the wearing red and blue, and
    looks kinda chunky (He's really big) And then have him
    punch the rocks out of the way. Now to make him do
    this, you must stand right next to the rock, then hit
    the arrow button the facing towards the rock and the
    punch button at the same time. After that change back
    to the white cat, and proceed to the end, making sure
    ninpo is fully charged with the meter filled up.
    Boss: See boss FAQ, Section 8
    Bout 2: *Doesn't know levels name*....*Sweatdrops*
    Difficulty: 2 (Easy)
    Recommended Character: Blue Pizza Cat
    This is an easy level to, but then again, all the
    levels in this game have a relatively small difficulty
    level. Make your way to the end, and make sure your
    ninpo meters are filled up, and fully charged. About a
    little through the level, you will see some water.
    Change into the water helper cat, and swim down into
    this secret area. It's better to go this way, you can
    pick up a full healing item, and skip over the hardest
    parts of the normal level. Make sure your fully
    charged for this boss battle, it's difficult if you're
    a new player...
    Boss: Once again, check Boss FAQ, Section 8
    Bout 3: It looks like a spaceship of some kind or
    Difficulty: 3 (Medium)
    Recommended Character: White Pizza Cat
    This is a good level to test your skills and reflexes
    you have learned so far. Watch out for spikes though,
    they kill...literally. Towards the end, make sure your
    fully charged, because this next boss is harder than
    anything else you've faced so far. To get to the end
    of the level, you have to use the flying helper, so
    make sure the helper meter is completely filled up, or
    you won't make it, even though falling off a cliff
    doesn't kill you. Remember to watch out for the boss,
    he's pretty hard.
    Boss: BOSS FAQ!!!! Quit looking here....
    Bout 4: It looks like a garden of some kind.....
    Difficulty: 4(Hard)
    Recommended Character: Pink Pizza Cat
    This level is quite a shock for those of you who found
    this game easy up to this point...Make sure you get
    fully charged on your ninpo very quickly, because the
    pink cat's strongest ninpo is really powerful. There's
    a few sections that you need the rock punching cat
    for, but don't use up your helpers to much. Watch out
    for the spinning tornado looking enemies, they hurt a
    lot, and take three hits to beat, so don't get
    ambushed by more than one of them, it means trouble.
    Boss: STOP LOOKING HERE!!!!! Go to Boss FAQ.....
    Bout 5: Funny Rat Guy's Lair
    Difficulty: 5! (Insane)
    Recommended Character: Pink Pizza Cat
    If the last level was easy for you, welcome to reality
    punk. This level truly deserves to be called insane,
    so this is the last bout I'm going to write in this
    FAQ for a while, I need time to recover....Get fully
    charged really quick, and at the part where you have
    to drill, then punch through a rock, make sure to only
    drill a little bit, and save a few blocks standing
    there, so the rock punching guy has somewhere to stand
    while punching the rock. Try as hard as you can to
    keep from getting ambushed by the green bug enemies
    and by the jumping enemies and other things, and make
    sure to stay at full health, at all times. You'll see
    why when you get to the boss, he was the only boss in
    the whole game that managed to actually kill me, so be
    Boss: I swear to god, quit reading this or I'll hurt
    Bout 6: Haunted looking woods thing
    Difficulty: 4 (Hard)
    Recommended Character: Pink Pizza Cat
    What's new to talk about? Get fully charged quickly,
    as you will be ambushed often in this level, and I
    mean VERY often, like 5 or 6 enemies at one time
    coming at you from two different directions about
    every other screen. Keep your health as full as
    possible, and make sure to keep your helpers ready if
    you need some assistance. This level can be difficult,
    but it's nothing compared to bout 5, and I mean
    Boss: I said I would hurt you! *Hits with a ball bat*
    Bout 7: Final Bout
    Difficulty: 4 (Hard)
    Recommended Character: Blue Pizza Cat, or Pink
    Ok, this game is just screwy. The fifth bout is much
    more difficult than the final bout is, and the final
    boss is absolutely nothing compared to the 5th one.
    Make sure to become fully charged ASAP!!! Keep your
    health filled up as much as you can, and try to make
    sure your helpers don't run out or get busted up, it
    will make this level much easier. Watch out for the
    final boss, he's not nearly as hard as the 5th boss,
    but he's just plain EVIL......
    Boss: *Continues beating reader with bat*
    There we go! You have managed to beat Samurai Pizza
    Cats! Congratulations!!!! I have found that this game
    doesn't have much replay value at all, even though you
    can play it again if you like! Remember my tips and
    help, and live long and prosper!!! I hope my FAQ was
    helpful, thanks for reading! But now, to the next
    Part 6: Mini Review
    Well, here I shall write a mini, or unofficial review
    for Samurai Pizza Cats! I know some of our opinions
    will be different about this game, but I think my
    opinion is what matters at the moment, because you
    know, this is MY FAQ....Well here we go!
    Gameplay: 9/10
    This game has some of the most original gameplay ideas
    that the action genre has ever seen, and it was one of
    the first games to introduce team based gameplay, and
    it did a really good job of it. But there are a few
    glitches that could be worked out.
    Story: 7/10
    I really think that this game does have a really
    spiffy story, but really I'm just guessing on this
    one, because my copy of the game is a japanese rom, so
    I can't read most of the text, which kinda sucks. But
    the way the bosses and levels are leads me to believe
    that this game has a very diverse storyline, full of a
    few twists and turns. If I could actually READ the
    text, this would have got a higher rating.
    Control: 8/10
    This game does a really good job of this, with really
    tight control. The attacks are all easy to execute,
    and jumping and moving and turning aren't hard to do.
    There's only one thing keeping this score from being
    perfect, and that's that sometimes your character will
    dash unexpectedly, and uncontrollably, and sometimes
    making you run off of edges and stuff without being
    able to stop your character before it's to late.
    Graphics: 8/10
    The graphics are real basic for a late 1980's NES
    game, but they get the job done just fine. The levels,
    characters, and enemies are all very nice looking,
    with lots of attention to detail, and all the attacks
    are very well animated. The only bad point on graphics
    is that they can get kind of grainy and choppy at
    times. This game does have awseome cinema scenes at
    the end of each level, which further enhance the game.
    Sound: 10/10!!!
    This game has some seriously groovin anime tunes, and
    the sound effects are great. They do a good job of
    enhancing the gameplay, while not becoming annoying or
    distracting to the gamer, which is all anybody wants
    in game music.
    Difficulty: 6/10
    The only weak point this game has is it's difficulty.
    Most levels are really easy, and all the levels are
    easy if you know what your doing, but this game is
    hard to get good at, because of the extremely steep
    learning curve. I say this because lets say your
    fighting through bout 3, where the enemies are stupid,
    you aren't ambushed, and the boss is to easy. But then
    you go to bout 4, and there only one item laying
    around, you have to balance your helpers, your
    ambushed by 5 to 6 enemies at a time, and the boss
    will kill unexperienced players once or twice before
    they finally beat him. So the difficulty is the only
    real faulty point of this game.
    Replay Value: 7/10
    Another slightly weak point in this game is that there
    is no real replay value. There's not any secret levels
    or characters to unlock, and the storyline doesn't
    change at all the second time around, plus during your
    second time playing there's no fun in it because you
    don't have to figure things out like you did the first
    time around, and that really takes something out of
    the game. 
    Style: 9/10
    This game is very innovative, with it's team based
    gameplay, exciting action, and groovin tunes. It also
    had cinemas, which were rare for games back then. The
    music and level design, not to mention the characters
    and enemies, all do a good job of enhancing the game,
    and adding to the atmosphere of the situation
    represented in the storyline. This is a very stylish
    game, and I like it for that.
    Overall: 9/10
    This is an interesting game, and even though it can be
    a little tough on new gamers, it's worth taking a look
    at, especially if you can find an english cartridge or
    rom. If you were ever a fan of the SPC, I suggest you
    go out and buy this game immediately, if you don't
    already own it. All fans, and even casual gamers, will
    not be dissapointed. Trust me.
    That's all for the review! I think I may post it
    seperately on GameFAQs sometime soon, so stay tuned!
    Now to the next section....

    Now to the next section....
    Part 8: Character Guide/Boss FAQ
    Well, this is self explanatory! I'll describe the
    different characters, and then do the boss FAQ!!!!
    White Pizza Cat:
    Looks: 7/10
    Attacks: 8/10
    Ninpo: 8/10
    Speed: 7/10
    Overall: 8/10
    What can I say? He's the average character in this
    game. He has good speed, attacks, and specials, but
    nothing to astounding. He's a good character to use
    while getting used to the game.
    Blue Pizza Cat:
    Looks: 9/10
    Attacks: 8/10
    Ninpo: 9/10
    Speed: 10/10
    Overall: 9/10
    He's the real speed demon character in this game, but
    his attacks aren't to strong. He has great specials,
    but you need to know how to use them effectively for
    them to be useful.
    Pink Pizza Cat:
    Overall: 10/10
    She's the very best character in the game. She's not
    quite as fast as the blue cat, but she has the best
    attacks and the games most devastating ninpo attacks. 
    Now to the boss FAQ!
    Boss one: Penguin Alien thingy
    At the beginning of the fight, just use your strongest
    ninpo attack twice, then jump up and hit him in the
    chest a couple of times, and he's done.
    Well, use your best ninpo attacks twice at the
    beginning, and then hit it when it comes into range to
    knock it away from you. It's an easy battle.
    Boss Three: FLYING PIG!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!
    Ok, just remember that you should always use your
    strongest ninpo attack twice at the start of EVERY
    boss battle, because I'll have to type a lot less.
    Remember to dispose of the little pigs quickly, as
    there a big annoyance.
    Boss Four: Funny Hopping Old Guy
    Difficulty: 4
    I hope you remember what I said, because I'm not
    saying it again. Hit him whenever he comes down
    towards the ground, and stay out of the way of the
    falling things.
    Boss Five: Old Rat Guy
    Difficulty: Off the charts
    Lots and lots of ninpo in this battle. Try to dodge
    all of his projectile attacks, and remember that you
    can only hurt him by hitting him in the head.
    Boss Six: I dunno what this thing is.....
    Difficulty: 4
    He isn't to hard. Just use your ninpo, and then dodge
    attacks and hit him a couple of times after dodging.
    He'll go down soon enough.
    Boss Seven: Final Boss
    Difficulty: 4
    Use your ninpo, and stay healed. Make sure to dodge as
    many attacks as possible, and hit him whenever you
    can. It can become difficult if  you have low health.
    That's all for the Character Guide/Boss FAQ! On to the
    next section...
