4. Version History
4th September 2006 (Afternoon) – Version 0.3 – The whole layout of the guide is
complete, and all the enemies and bosses have been listed, while the Enemies
and Bosses sections and the categories within them have all been introduced.
Introduction, Contents, Legal Information, Contact, and Credits are all
complete. Really, all I need to do now is the descriptions and strategies for
each enemy, but I have to play through the whole game again having deleted my
old save file a while ago. Might be a while before I can get them done.
8th September 2006 (Evening) – Version 0.32 – I’ve completed the Miscellaneous
Enemies section without actually completing my current game. I’m off to do just
that now, so bye! For now.
9th September 2006 (Late Evening) – Version 0.34 – I have completed the game,
finally, and I have also completed the TCTF Forces sub-section of this guide. I
also completed the strategy for the Griffin boss ‘fight’.
10th September 2006 (Noon) – Version 0.40 – Completed the Deadly Brain, Dream
Muro, and both Barabas boss fights. I’m also halfway through the Shinatama
12th September 2006 (Evening) – Version 0.45 – I’m really trying to get as much
done on this as possible, even though I have school <_>. Damn annoying,
especially homework -_-. Well, anyway, I’ve completed the Strikers and Furies
sub-sections, and I did the Mukade boss battle.
15th September 2006 (Afternoon) – Version 0.65 – I have completed the Ninjas,
Tankers, and Elites sections. That means I have completed the Enemies section
as a whole! Yay for me! AND it’s Friday. I could potentially get this guide
finished today, as only a few bosses are left.
15th September 2006 (Early Evening) – Version 1.00 – I completed the Bosses
section and the Outroduction. Guide complete. The weekend is ahead of me. Life
couldn’t get much better. BUT I HAVE HOMEWORK. Damn. Hehe. Well, yeah, the
guide’s complete, I’m very pleased with myself for doing this and fulfilling a
promise of sorts, and uhh yeah. It’s all good. I hope this gets accepted…
The enemies form the bulk of the gameplay within Oni. You will spend most of
your time and get most of your entertainment from fighting and killing these
guys. Would this game even be a game without enemies? Of course not.
Now, I have categorized each type of enemy, and these categories are listed in
the Contents. There will be multiple enemies per category, all of which are
listed and any special strategies given to defeat them are also included. Basic
information concerning each category will be shown at the start of said
Let’s go then!
5a. Miscellaneous Enemies
These are enemies who don’t really have more powerful clones, and they aren’t
strong enough to be bosses either. None of them will actually give you too much
The Training Drone is the easiest enemy in the game, as it is simply used for
training, as its name suggests. You’ll be given guidelines on how to beat these,
so don’t worry. However, they do appear in a later level and they have turned
rather malicious, but the usual punches, kicks, and throws are more than enough
to dispatch them.
They do actually have a stand-out moment, during the training level. You can
observe two of them fighting a TCTF Agent, and it is possible for them to kill
her, at which Shinatama will express shock and sadness and ask that you quickly
move on. Go Training Drones!
The Syndicate Worker is a beginning enemy introduced in the first levels of the
game, often to accompany the more competent Strikers. They wear blue shirts and
black trousers, and are weaksauce. Punches, kicks, and throws are all you need
to defeat them. Don’t waste time trying to perform a special move on such fools.
The Security Guard is a slightly more resilient version of the Syndicate Worker.
They are taller and wear red and black uniforms. They’re usually around to
protect civilians, but if they get in your way, don’t waste time in killing
The Communications Trooper is a somewhat unique enemy appearing in nearly every
level in the game. They are very weak, wearing blue armour, and only really
dangerous with the gun. Their Static Fist move is of note, as it is frequently
used. It can’t be blocked, so you should make sure to evade it (they will shout
the name of the move as they are about to perform it) or just prepare to take
the minimal damage.
They’re only really dangerous when accompanying Strikers in strength of numbers,
or when they’re using a gun.
The Communications Trooper is unique in that he is the only enemy who actively
(both a TCTF Tactical Trooper and a Green Striker do the following…once) runs
to activate the Alarm Consoles. Kill him before he does this (remember he can’t
take much damage, and won’t attempt to hurt you while he’s running to the
console), or, alternatively and with much more grace, tail him until he
positions himself in front of the console, then perform a crushing Backbreaker.
There’s no way back from that ^_^.
The green-clothed snipers of the game are actually a laughing stock where real
snipers are not. Their only asset is the Mercury Bow they nearly always carry,
which is the most competent actively found gun in the game, no question.
However, these guys also provide you with the opportunity to take that Mercury
Bow and use it for your own needs, so look out for them, which is probably in
your best interest – they can catch you out and hurt you badly if you don’t
know where they are.
If you do know where they are, then it is very easy to use various dodging
moves to evade the slow bow, and when they are reloading, charge them and jump
kick them to the ground. You can them finish them off as their health and
attacks match that of the Syndicate Worker, if not worse. Then take the Mercury
Bow and carry on with your mission :).
Last but not least of the miscellaneous enemies, the bomb trooper, clothed in
distinctive blue and yellow armour, is a dangerous opponent to both you and his
fellow syndicate assailants.
As a normal enemy, the Bomb Trooper is not much to write home about, with weak
attacks and health. However, when you supposedly kill him, his detonation
device attached to him is automatically activated, and you have three seconds
to get out of the general vicinity (it’s quite easy to get out of the blast
radius as long as you dash) until he explodes violently and nothing is left.
The advantage is that as he often accompanies Strikers and the like, it’s
entirely possible to catch the other enemies in the devastating blast and often
kill them. Just make sure you’re not distracted when you’re near to the rapidly
descending counter above his body.
Like the Training Drone, the Bomb Trooper has a standout moment where he speaks
to Konoko in a tower, telling her that he has activated his detonation device
and will kill both himself and her in the ensuing blast. Konoko grabs him and
throws him into a violent foyer below, killing many of the syndicate in a
spectacular explosion. In the words of the TCTF Officer…
“Uhh, roger that…Area secured. O_o”
These guys are the backbone of the Syndicate. Clad in the colour described in
their name and varying forms of metal armour arrangements, they’re always
present in Syndicate missions and dangerous foes if underestimated.
~Green Striker (Grunt)~
These guys are only a small step up from the average joes of the Miscellaneous
Section. They really aren’t hard enemies at all, unless they have a gun, in
which case you should dash while zigzagging from side to side, then finish off
with a jumping kick to knock the weapon out of his hands.
The Green Strikers are generally physically weak, and only their throws should
be of too much worry. With the agility Konoko has, you shouldn’t have any
trouble kicking, punching, throwing them to their doom without getting hit. If
they surround you, use your evasive moves and just concentrate on each one that
comes to you.
Worth mentioning are the Green Strikers in the Dream Level, who are tiny and
almost as small as Konoko’s foot. Two leg sweeps will kill them, but after the
first they will attempt to run away to their little mousey holes. Be a cat and
kill them quick.
~Blue Striker (Hoplite)~
The Blue Striker is a small step up from the Green Striker. Use the same sort
of moves and tactics on him; just be wary of his increased health, skill with
both his limbs and his guns, and his special move, the Striker Slam Punch. This
cannot be blocked, but if you duck it and then leg sweep him, you get a free
leg sweep while he’s on the ground, further edging his health away.
The Blue Striker also uses jumping moves a lot, so either stay out of the way
of, evade, or counter these attacks with jumping kicks of your own.
~Red Striker (Hussar)~
Again, the Red Striker isn’t too much harder to defeat than the Blue Striker.
You might want to use throws more often to prevent him blocking and countering,
and do more damage at the same time, but basic fighting moves are all that is
needed to take down this generic enemy.
His only noteworthy feature is that he has higher health than the other two,
otherwise, just attack him like the other two.
5c. TCTF Forces
These people are actually your friends at first, but as Konoko discovers the
truth, they are told to eliminate her. They’re good hearted people (well the
Black Ops aren’t), but you have to kill them nonetheless.
These guys are more often than not civilians, but when you face them near the
Bio Vats, they’re hostile.
Fortunately, they’re worse fighters than the Syndicate Workers and weaker than
the Mercenary Snipers. I’ve killed one with a simple kick and then a throw.
That should state clearly how easy they are.
Any other information? Well, they wear green shirts and grey trousers, so that
way you know if you’re facing a TCTF Worker.
These people wear light blue uniforms, and can be male or female. The first
time you see them, they’re your friends and competent fighters, but later in
the game, you’ll face them as enemies.
They have no special attacks and are very easy to dispatch. The only time you
might face trouble is if they’re using strength in numbers. Otherwise, you
shouldn’t worry when you see them. Basic combat tactics are all you need.
~TCTF Tactical Trooper~
A competent fighter is the TCTF Tactical Trooper. He is the TCTF’s answer to
the Syndicate’s Green Strikers. He’s slow but powerful, and has a number of
throws that can catch you out if you’re outnumbered.
Otherwise, the basic tactics of kicks and throws are more than enough to take
him down comfortably. He’s nothing special, but not to be underestimated either,
especially with a gun.
The TCTF SWATs are badasses with high health and good physical resilience.
They’re fast, unlike their lumbering figure and armour may suggest, and can
easily piece together damaging combos – fortunately, you can block these.
They do seem to be slow in dodging attacks, though, and throws are quite
effective against them. A notable feature of the TCTF SWAT is his Lion Axe kick,
which he often uses when you’re grounded. For this reason, among others, you
should be quick and always on your toes when fighting this formidable opponent.
The TCTF SWAT has a standout moment, where two of them chase Konoko and one of
them is sucked into and mashed up by a giant fan. Not pretty. The other guy
retreats and acts like nothing happened. It was actually the fault of the TCTF
~Black Ops Tactical Trooper~
The Black Ops Tactical Trooper, clothed in black armour and a blue visor with
only their mouth exposed, are a simple upgrade from the TCTF Tactical Trooper.
They are actually physically weak, and only dangerous if they are used as
support troops or if they have an automatic gun. One of their few redeeming
features from their predecessors is their speed, which is actually one of their
only saving graces. Other than this, they’re pretty average opponents that
shouldn’t provide you with much trouble.
~Black Ops SWAT~
The ultimate enforcer of the TCTF, the Black Ops SWAT is a far tougher opponent
than his underlings, the Black Ops Tactical Troopers and the TCTF SWATs. They
wear completely black armour with a blue visor, and like the TCTF SWATs, have a
lumbering figure that is quite deceptive.
They have the same dangerous moves of the TCTF SWATs also, with the Lion Axe
kick and Lion Fist remaining dangerous moves. They have high health and their
combos and throws are damaging. All I can say is keep up the pressure and give
them a good steady fight, with relentless kicks, punches, and the occasional
throws. Only give them a chance to get up so they don’t get a cheap shot in as
they rise, then leap up and pound them again.
Did I mention they’re very competent marksmen? They’re dangerous opponents,
The Furies are the women that Muro’s army wouldn’t be the same without. They’re
quick, clever, and dangerous, but their light armour does make them weak in
~Green Fury (Harridan)~
The Green Fury’s only major plus is that she is particularly quick. In fact,
the Furies are the quickest troops of the Syndicate. Fortunately, this means
that she has extremely low health.
Your basic kicks and punches will be enough to take her down without too much
trouble. You might take a little damage from her relentless attacks, but it’s
nothing too big.
~Blue Fury (Banshee)~
The Blue Fury is the most common Fury, but she isn’t much harder than the Green
Fury. She likes to block your attacks a lot and counter them with her own, but
you should block these and get some good long-range kicks in. Basic mêlée
attacks are all that you will really need - generally, you shouldn’t try
special moves on furies, as they often take too long and are too slow so the
furies can dodge them easily.
~Red Fury (Valkyrie)~
Wow, this one has really low health too! In fact, I’ll tell you something –
even Red Furies can be almost killed by one backbreaker. Yeah. They’re not very
intimidating now, are they?
But seriously, if you can get a backbreaker in, do it. Otherwise, as I have
stated before, kicks and maybe quick punches are the way to go. The Red Fury
has the Ten-Shadow Punch which can be quite annoying, but if you are quick
enough to evade it, then that is the only move that will cause you problems.
Ninjas are lightning fast and very acrobatic, but physically weak. They’re
dangerous opponents though, and can be as surprising as they are creepy.
~Green Ninja (Infiltrator)~
The Green Ninja, while quick and agile, is not a very hard opponent. He has low
health and doesn’t do too much damage, so good kicks, punches, and maybe a
throw or two will have him down in no time.
This Ninja, however, does have two or three annoying gimmicks that are common
to all ninjas, so this section applies to the following two enemies, too. The
first is that he occasionally dodges away from an attack making copies of
himself that you will hit so he does not take any damage. Fortunately, he often
seems unable to counter you if you can recover quickly after this. Second, is
the Volt Suplex special move – this is a throw of sorts where he will grab
Konoko’s head with his legs and throw her to the ground for decent damage.
Third, most commonly used and also most annoying, is the Volt Stomp. The Ninja
will jump into the air, usually while you’re doing a combo, and land on you for
some good damage. It takes good responses to get away from the stomp, so keep
on your toes when facing this quick yet weak enemy.
~Blue Ninja (Eliminator)~
The Blue Ninja is a dangerous opponent. He has all the characteristics of the
Blue Ninja, but is a little more hurtful with his attacks and just a generally
annoying and tough opponent. His health could be compared to that of the Green
Often, Blue Ninjas are deployed with Green Ninjas. You should concentrate on
neither, instead just pummeling whichever one gets closest to you. Just watch
out for the Volt Stomps and the dodges…
~Red Ninja (Avenger)~
Personally trained by Mukade, the Red Ninjas are very dangerous opponents. By
the time you first see them, you may be accustomed to the Ninja style of
fighting, but these guys have a lot more health than the other two and are
sometimes capable of going invisible. When there’s two of them, be prepared for
a damn tough fight where you will need your wits and best attacks about you.
Tankers are illegal SLDs (Simulated Life Dolls) created by the Syndicate’s
corrupt scientists. They’re powerful, but a little dumb and quite slow. They
are most often used as support troops for Strikers.
~Green Tanker (Skirmisher)~
I’ll be honest. I’ve never seen a Green Tanker, ever. I think maybe they are
only in the PC Version.
So, to make sure this guide has quality in every section, I’ll give you some
basic Tanker tips here…
The Tanker is a slow opponent who you can overwhelm quite easily with agile
attacks and an on-the-ball mentality. They’re really not too difficult, and you
should never be intimidated by them unless they’re in numbers or supporting
other troops, in which case you should beat up anyone and everyone who comes
~Blue Tanker (Brawler)~
Now the most common Tanker. Apply all the knowledge you’ve learnt from the
Green Tanker section, and use it. Simple?
Unfortunately, it’s not. The Blue Tanker has a lot of health and will take you
a while to kill, and his Nuclear Tackle special move is very common. The Tanker
will spontaneously jump up and spread his whole body in an attempt to smother
Konoko and crush her under his body. It’s daring and leaves him vulnerable
afterwards (you can get one or two leg sweeps in), but when he does hit, it’s
annoying and damaging. Use evasive maneuvers to get out of the way of this
Otherwise, the Tanker is relatively average and a little slow, so use basic
attacks and throws against him.
~Red Tanker (Crusher)~
Uhh…Okay, I haven’t seen the Red Tanker either, not once. The only advice I can
give you is that he probably is a better fighter and has more health than the
Blue Tanker, but just use what you normally would against the latter and you
should come out with barely a few scratches. Hope that helps.
Elites are the strongest basic enemies of Muro’s army. Massive, terrifying, and
physically hugely powerful, they can take on three well-trained men and come
out alive. Their speed isn’t bad either. They are only used for the most
dangerous and important operations.
~Green Elite (Ogre)~
The Green Elite isn’t too hard of a opponent. His most prominent aspect is his
ridiculous health, and the Cannonball Roll special move. This can’t be blocked,
and will hit you for good damage more often than not. He will curl up into a
ball and roll towards you at a fair speed – he also shouts the name of the move
when he’s about to do it. This is probably your only warning to get the hell
out of the way, but it is possible to hit him while he’s recovering.
Often when he’s supporting other lesser troops, the Green Elite has a gun. You
should use a running attack to knock this out of his hands, then try and
concentrate on the others before you move onto the big guy himself.
Unfortunately, the Elite will attempt to harass you with his Cannonball Rolls
while you’re doing this, so keep him at bay too.
Otherwise, the Green Elite can be taken down quite easily eventually. It takes
time, but you should remember that Konoko is a little faster than him so kicks,
punches, throws, and the Sledgehammer Heel should just slowly chip his health
away until he’s gone.
~Blue Elite (Giant)~
Apply the same tactics as you did for the Green Elite when facing the Blue
Elite. Be prepared for more Cannonball Rolls, though…And a lot of health to
take off. A lot.
The Blue Elite also uses the Whirling Dervish special move, where he spins
around on the spot with his arms around to hit you. Fortunately, it’s possible
to duck and leg sweep the fool, but if you’re near him, it may be a little hard
to evade, seeing as it has very little warning. It isn’t as commonly used as
the Cannonball Roll, thank God.
Also, Blue Elites tend to appear in pairs. When they are in pairs, you should
be careful to concentrate on neither, do a lot of evasive moves, and slowly
whittle each one’s health down with throws (hopefully you’ll be able to throw
one into the other) and special moves. They’re tough and arguably the hardest
normal enemy in the game that you will find, so don’t expect an easy ride.
~Red Elite (Titan)~
The hardest normal enemy in the game, the Red Elite. However, I have never seen
one. Urk. I’m not sure if they even exist, as described in the manual – ‘Titan
class Elites are only rumoured to exist’. Technically they could have just been
put in the manual as a scare for the arrogant players expecting an easy game.
The manual states that they have the special move Crucifix Punch that Barabas
also uses, so be wary of this and keep on your toes if you ever do come up
While they may simply not exist in the PS2 version, the Red Elite should be
treated with respect if you come across one, and be prepared for a nasty battle
with the king of the Syndicate’s henchmen.
The bosses are the nasty guys who there are generally only one of, and it’s
safe to say that they’re an ever-present trademark of most good videogames. Oni
has a large plethora of bosses, and they deserve their own section as such.
6a. Deadly Brain
The Deadly Brain is your first boss, and he’s actually quite a hard one. To
explain the battle, basically you have to run to each of the command consoles
(you’ll know what they are) and activate all four of them in turn to defeat the
Deadly Brain. Unfortunately, you have to do this three times (meaning you’ll
have to activate them twelve times in total) before he’ll finally die.
Sounds a bit easy, no? Well, while you’re running between each console, the
Deadly Brain has lasers circling the room, and if you touch one of them, you’re
in for some trouble. Automatic Guns will fire at you from all angles, and
Screaming Projectiles will hunt you down and sap your health. They’ll only stop
if you haven’t touched lasers for a long time, if you successfully activate all
four consoles in a sequence (there are three sequences remember), or if you’re
dead. Now it’s a bit more complicated, huh?
Some tips before the battle: if you do touch a laser early on in the sequence
(i.e. after only one or two consoles have been activated) then you haven’t got
much hope. Just bear with the guns and make sure you’re dodging the lasers, but
most important, avoid the Screaming Projectiles – these are what you MUST avoid,
or you’re dead. If you’ve activated three already, I would suggest dashing to
the final one and activating it quickly to make the guns stop. Also, when
you’re in front of a console (in front of its screen), the lasers will not
touch you – they seem to skip the console and they’ll carry on where there’s
open space (i.e. between them). Remember this. One more thing, when you start
the second and third sequences, you’ll be in front of a console. Activate this
without moving, and you’ve effectively only got three consoles left to do in
that sequence. Although that would seem obvious, there are people who think
they have to go all the way around. I’ve seen them O_o
Well, preparation aside, shall we go on to the battle? Why not? The first
sequence, well, wait until a laser passes by the door and entrance to the
Deadly Brain’s…arena, then dash to the console directly in front of you and
activate it. If you carry on in the direction you should be going (to the
console farthest from the door), then you’ll see that there are low lasers that
you’ll have to jump coming towards you, and high lasers that you’ll avoid as
long as you don’t jump following you. It’s easy to dodge these, to be quite
honest, just make sure to jump forward over the low lasers and you’ll be fine.
Just remember, as you should always do throughout this battle, to dash as soon
as a laser reaches the console you’re currently at. This gives you lots more
When you’ve done that, Shinatama will speak and the brain will seem to think it
is quite the beauty brain. It’s gone a bit mad, but it’s still very dangerous.
Now, if you carry on left, then you’ll notice two lower lasers that you must
jump are coming towards you. So, what to do? Why not activate the console
you’re currently at, and then head left towards the next, and so on and so
forth, all the while jumping the simple lasers? It’s not hard at all.
The brain has decided that it wants feet. Now it may have gone completely
bonkers, but this time, very fast moving groups of five lasers will be
advancing towards you. The only way to dodge these is to dash and then slide,
or outrun them. This is where the battle gets its difficulty. Activate the
console you’re currently at, then face the RIGHT, because we’re going to try
and outrun them. Sliding is a bit hit and miss. As soon as a group of lasers
passes the console you’re at, dash to the next one, but be very quick about it.
Hopefully, you’ll make it. Repeat the process. If you do get hit at this stage,
then carry on regardless, only making sure to avoid the screaming projectiles.
Eventually you’ll activate all four consoles, and the brain will be shut down.
Right at the start, Barabas will fire at you with his 1337 gun, but it isn’t
actually 1337 at all. Don’t pick it up throughout the whole battle – it is too
slow. Make sure to run to one of the sides and dodge the blast, then run
towards him and jump kick him or at least knock him to the ground to make the
gun fall out of his hands.
Now keep leg sweeping him whenever he is on the ground, then use repeated
Sledgehammer Heels whenever he gets up, or a few kicks to soften him up. If you
let off for a while, he may use dangerous combos, a shoulder barge, or even go
to pick up his gun. If he does the latter, quickly attack him and get it out of
his hands. His most dangerous move is when he shouts ‘Earthquaker’ – he will
jump and waves will reverberate across the ground, and they can hit you for bad
damage. You have very little time to either get out of the way or jump to avoid
them. Other than the Earthquaker, it’s a simple battle, as Barabas is quite
slow and his only other feature is when you get him to orange health and leave
him alone for a few seconds. At this point, he will say ‘Stronger, and
stronger’ and regenerate his health – you must put a stop to him doing this
immediately or he can get himself back to yellow health, which may be annoying
if you had nearly gotten him killed.
When you deal the finishing blow, he will fall, hurt, and zoom up into the sky
to retreat and lick his wounds.
6c. Barabas Redux.
This battle is very similar to the first time you faced Barabas, with the only
difference being that you’re on the rooftops, and if you fall off, then you’re
dead. If you knock Barabas off, then he will NOT die, and instead use his
jetpack to zoom back up to the battlefield and even use a variant of
Earthquaker which will hurt you if you’re near to where he rises back up. For
this reason, try not to fight near the edges of the rooftop.
As before, dodge his initial shot from the gun, then take him down with a
Sledgehammer Heel or something. Then keep up the pressure, never allow him to
regenerate, and don’t let him or yourself get hold of the gun. Just forget the
gun, it’s crap for you but pretty good for him. He uses Earthquaker slightly
more frequently this time, and is able to regenerate to yellow-green health,
but those are the only two differences other than the rooftop thing. He also
has the Crucifix Punch move, where he will pick you up and punch you for some
damage, but this isn’t too much too worry about and it only happens if you’re
giving him a chance. Pressure from repeated throws and combos, and leg sweeping
while he is on the ground are what will whittle his health down while you stay
in the green.
Expert players may wish to go for a showboat kill. Get him on red health near
the edge of the rooftop, then use a killing blow to knock him off. He certainly
can’t get up from that. That sort of kill takes time and patience (you’ll
probably have to allow him to regenerate more than once), but it’s possible.
This is a good battle against a worthy opponent. You’re up against Mukade the
Master Ninja, so don’t expect this one to be a walk in the park, exactly.
Well, first, I’d better explain Mukade’s moves and such. He’s a ninja, so he’s
naturally going to be quick (his health isn’t bad either), and he’s capable of
shooting red beams of light at you which take off a fair amount of health, he
can pull of five+ hit combos, and he’s been known to dabble in making himself
invisible from time to time (although generally you can still see him,
especially as its dark). He can do ninja throws as well, but these are rare,
and the trademark annoying ninja move called the Volt Stomp where he jumps up
in the air and lands on you, which you will probably see more than once in the
battle. His most commonly used move is that of teleportation. He will spin for
one or two seconds while blue rays of light surround him, and he will disappear
to a location unknown to you. Often, it’s very near to you, where he will
attempt to do a dashing attack or a combo on you, or he may teleport away from
you (or above you, on one of the ledges on the edge) and shoot those annoying
red beams of light. Fortunately, it’s possible to catch him mid-teleport and
get some good hits in before he is finally able to teleport again. Usually,
it’s dashing, then jumping kicks, or often throws, that will stop him mid-
teleport. He also teleports back into the ‘arena’ if you knock him off one of
So what to do? Well, keep on your toes, keep up the pressure. When you don’t
know where he is after a teleport, dash around and you’ll find him eventually.
Try not to let him attack you, as his attacks can not often be blocked, and
it’s hard to evade his lightning-fast combos. When he shoots his red light
beams, run away, as they will fizzle out eventually. Your best bet is to keep
punching and kicking him, never giving him a chance. The old trusty
Sledgehammer Heel works well if you can daze him momentarily with a good
forward kick to the chest. If you can stop him teleporting, this will always
help, as you are getting damage onto him while reducing the likelihood that he
will hurt you after he teleports.
Hopefully, you’ll emerge victorious after a tense battle. Konoko denies she is
the monster like Mukade, then snaps the broken ninja’s neck. Ouch.
6e. Dream Muro
Move towards Muro and you’ll find yourself boxed in with only him and you
inside. You have to fight the guy, but it’s not as hard as you might think.
Quickly kick him while he’s standing still, then try and get a number of throws
and Sledgehammer Heels in. These all take off good damage and Muro can’t do
much about it if you keep up the pressure. If you let him off the hook, then he
might hit you with some nasty combos and even his more notable move here, the
Leg Breaker. This is usually when he blocks a kick though and can then reverse
it, so keep on your toes and time your attacks right.
As I said, pressure is the best thing to use here. Repeated throws, jumping
kicks, and damaging special moves like the heel are your best bet, and make
sure to crouch and do a leg sweep while he’s down to knock off a little more of
Eventually, with the ‘killing’ blow, he’ll disappear in a crackle of purple
light, and you’ll have to carry on with the level.
6f. Dream Griffin
Griffin can’t fight, but in your dreams, he can :(. He even has a damn annoying
Stun Gun that can really piss you off, and you’ll probably want to keep it out
of his hands. And the other two pair of hands that belong to the TCTF SWATs who
are accompanying him…Note that you will have to kill all three, you can’t kill
Griffin and expect the other two to disappear, unfortunately. Just make sure to
knock the Stun Gun out of the armed person’s hands with a jumping kick or
something. You may want to disarm whoever is using it, and holster and keep the
gun for yourself.
Now on to the battle. Hopefully you will have read the TCTF SWAT section of
this guide, and you should know they’re relatively slow and the Lion Axe Kick
move is their best, and they will use it a lot during this battle – your best
bet is to evade and counter with a kick of your own. They’re more of an
annoyance than a danger, and Griffin is actually quite a sub-standard fighter.
Throws and Sledgehammer Heels work particularly well on him, and try to get a
few leg sweeps in on him while he’s down. The same applies to the TCTF SWATs
who you should first down with quick kicks and punch combos. Stun Gun aside,
you should be able to keep on top of this battle, especially if you use lots of
throws and just kick anyone in your way. You’ll win, probably.
6g. Dream Konoko
Oooh, it’s yourself! Note that the enemy Konoko has Daodan Power on her, so she
is a lot more dangerous at the start of the battle. If you can keep attacking
her without getting hit, then the Daodan Power should soon disappear. Otherwise,
It won’t hurt if you use a Hypo of your own while you’re on full health to get
yourself in the same state.
Despite yourself being the most amazing master fighter ever, your clone isn’t
much of a fighter at all. When her Daodan Power runs out, she’s relatively weak,
with only her speed and agility as her best asset. She will often block and
evade your attacks, but if you keep up the pressure then she won’t have much
chance to recover. Sledgehammer Heel is again one of the better moves to do if
the first two quick punches hit, but otherwise, use your quickest moves to hurt
the minx. Throws can be useful if she’s blocking too much, but the battle isn’t
that hard and you’ll only struggle if you’re scared to fight. Keep your wits
about you and use basic combat moves and you should be fine. When you kill
BANG! No pizza before bed, girl.
If you thought the Deadly Brain was hard, well, wait until you see the lasers
that you have to dodge here…
It has happened. Griffin has manipulated Shinatama’s remains into a robot that
controls a defence system similar to the Deadly Brain that Shinatama ridiculed
and helped you fight against not long ago. It’s exactly the same format as the
Deadly Brain fight, but it’s a lot harder. If you haven’t already, read the
first three paragraphs of the Deadly Brain boss strategy to get an idea of how
this works, only replace Automatic Guns with Plasma Rifles, and add gaps in the
floor that you must jump or go around to the list of dangers. It’s an ugly
battle, and the lasers are almost impossible to avoid sometimes. Still, I’ll
guide you through each phase in the best way that I can, but don’t expect it to
The first phase…Where you’re standing at the minute, nothing can hurt you. You
should note that there are vertical lasers moving outwards towards the edge of
the chamber, and three horizontal lasers moving across each section where the
control consoles are. Turn to your right, and as soon as the horizontal lasers
have come close to you and then gone away, run. Make sure the vertical laser
isn’t in a disruptive position either, but the horizontal lasers are your main
concern. Hopefully you’ll make it with relative ease. But this is where it gets
hard. Continue going to the right, but as soon as the horizontal lasers have
passed behind you, then dash forward to the center while dodging the vertical
laser. Carry on quickly when the horizontal lasers in front of you are moving
away, and hopefully you’ll get to the next console. The next area will allow
you a break in the middle, where you can stand without any danger. Carry on
when you’re comfortable and activate the next console, then carry on and hit
the final one. If you get hit at this stage, carry on, just make sure not to
fall down into the pit.
Now, the second phase. Seriously, this is ridiculous. The lasers from phase one
are here, but there is another vertical laser, very slow moving, that can go
through the console and hit you while you’re activating it! Immediately
activate the console you’re currently on, then move quickly to the next one as
you did in the first stage. If you can safely get to the second console, then
you can plan when to run, as the new vertical laser is, as I said, particularly
slow. If you get hit, carry on regardless, making sure to not fall in any gaps
in a panic, and try not to hit any more lasers as this will prolong your agony
under the rifles and screamers.
The third phase. First, activate the console you’re on. You only have three to
go now. Face right. You’ll notice there are two horizontal lasers, one low, one
relatively high that can hit Konoko when she is standing. I recommend dashing
to the right when the low one is furthest away from you, on the right side. NOT
when it is on the left side. You can jump it when you know it’s coming that way.
However, there are columns of vertical lasers that move to try and catch you as
you are crossing sections at the center. This is all about timing, patience,
and skill, and maybe some luck. This phase is seriously hard. If you get hit
(likely), then just advance regardless and try to get away from the screaming
projectiles. You might just die from the plasma rifle shots, though.
Perseverance is what you need here.
Eventually, you should do it. Shinatama will attempt to activate the Omega
phase, but she is unable to and instead advances on Griffin. Griffin shoots and
kills her, but Konoko is behind him and she disarms him.
It’s down to just you and Griffin. Griffin can’t do anything. You’re the one
with a gun. The ball’s in your court. Whatcha gonna do?
If you hit him in any way, he dies. Or, you can walk behind him and you’ll walk
away, leaving him to reflect on his sins and deceitfulness.
If you kill him, you will face the Daodan Enhanced Muro as the final boss,
otherwise you’ll face normal Muro, but Griffin and two Black Ops SWATs will
back you up. It’s entirely up to you…
You’ve saved Griffin, or so it would appear. Muro (his voice appears to have
broken) and two Red Furies will appear, but Griffin and two Black Ops SWATs
will arrive in a helicopter to back you up. This is a little complicated battle,
so first I’ll explain the various allies who will come to back you and Muro up.
Griffin and the Black Ops SWATs do not matter to much to you other than to
provide useful diversions for Muro’s lackeys. Muro himself will initially go
after you, but he may go after the others if they hit him. The Black Ops SWATs
and Griffin will go up against two Red Furies initially. When/if the Red Furies
are killed, Blue Elites will appear to replace them individually. If those two
are both killed, then a lone Red Ninja will appear, presumably Mukade’s right-
hand man. When he is killed, Muro is on his own. You do not get any
replacements when the Black Ops SWATs and/or Griffin die.
Now, what I suggest you do is avoid Muro for now because his Daodan power is
currently brimming, and his special moves are pretty ridiculous. He also, when
he is normal, has Neckbreaker and Legbreaker moves which can hit you for
massive damage. What I suggest you do is head left and help out the lone Black
Ops SWAT kill the Red Fury. Remember what I said in her section – a single
Backbreaker will pretty much kill her, so do that if you can (it’s possible
because she is distracted). You don’t have to do this, though. Muro will be
harassing you constantly, so keep him at bay with some kicks and throws if you
can. Griffin and the other guy can take the other Red Fury. At this point, you
should probably go help out Griffin and turn the fight into a mass brawl. Blue
Elites will arrive and the Black Ops SWATs will die quickly. Griffin can keep
the Elites at bay while you get some good kicks and throws in on Muro, who
should have lost his Daodan power by now.
If Griffin dies, then you should take on the Blue Elites, who should be running
out of health. Again, keep Muro at bay. When the Elites die, the Red Ninja will
emerge, so go to greet him and kill him quickly. It will probably be down to
you and Muro now.
Muro has some very nasty special moves that he uses constantly, and he’s very
quick so you probably won’t be able to get a leg sweep in on him when he’s down.
Just try to dodge his attacks and really try to avoid the Legbreaker. As long
as you are facing Muro, the Neckbreaker will not come into play. If you keep up
the pressure as you did in the dream fight, he won’t have much of a chance.
Kicks can daze him and a Sledgehammer Heel will really hurt him. Keep dodging
his attacks, keep up the pressure, keep your wits about you, and you will
6k. Daodan Enhanced Muro
Oh, you KILLED Griffin? Well done. Well you’ve got a giant mutated Muro on your
hands now, so I hope you are happy with your decision.
He’ll start off all red and glowing and stuff. You cannot hit him while he is
like this. Instead, you must go near to his attacks and make him attack you. He
will often use a single punch or stomps, but after a few of these, he will
attempt to use a combo on you. When he uses this, he uses his red power up and
he will become normal. This is your chance to get some good kicks and
Sledgehammer Heels in on him. POW! That’s it! Unfortunately, after a few
seconds, he will crouch and focus himself, and he will become red again with a
massive pulse of red energy. If you are near to him when he does this (likely),
you will be thrown back and hurt very slightly. You must now repeat the process
of dodging his attacks again. This is easy if you are adept at dashing, but
evasive moves help too.
If you near full health when he is not red, maybe you should use a Hypo to
become Daodan Powered yourself, so you can hit him for a lot more damage. You
should also note that when his health gets less and less, his red power becomes
a lot more erratic and a single recharge may not work for him. Basically, as
you knock more health off him, his Daodan becomes far less capable.
Hopefully, you’ll persevere and win this final battle. You’ve killed pretty
much everyone and completed the game. Well done.
