    asked me, yes, you can put it up on your site. The sites above are the
    ones that don't have to ask to use them.
                         
    Bushido is copyright Squaresoft 1996/7. Please do not leech any 
    of this to make your own FAQ out of it. Unless you have MY permission DO 
    NOT take anything at all from this guide. Don't edit, don't do anything to 
    it and submit it without e-mailing me with permission first. You can
    print it out, but only for personal use, no selling this! Summing it
    up, do anything for your own personal benefit (apart from reading it)
    without asking me, AND YOU'LL BURN IN HELL!!!!!
                         ---====================---
    To get in touch, e-mail me at dc3131@yahoo.com.au
    My ICQ# is 34601221
    My webpage is http://www.dcmagus.com
    My MSN contact is dcmagus@hotmail.com, but any email sent to that
       address will most likely be ignored, as I don't check that
       account
    My AIM name is dcmagus
    
    Be warned that I'm only on the net twice a week, don't expect replies 
    from me which are ten minutes after you've sent the mail. Here's some 
    guidelines about sending me mail:
    
    1.Make sure you put the title of the game you're asking about in the
      subject. I've made a fair few FAQs, and it's a bit hard to work 
      things out sometimes.
      
    2.If it's an FAQ, make sure that it's not already in the guide!!! If
      it is, I'll do my best to ignore it.
      
      If it's not in there, make sure that the details you provide 
      are, well, DETAILED, and not sketchy. Examples are "Hi need to know
      how to get past this part, i'm in a room and stuck", I need to know
      where you are, etc.
      
    3.Ask nicely. So far, most people have, but if your mail goes along
      the lines of "Hi, need code for B2, reply within the next hour 
      otherwise I'll bomb you" will not get you anywhere.
      
    That's it. Sorry for being a pain, but it had to be said.

    1)Introduction
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Yes, it's a bit strange writing up a guide for a game which was out
    yonks ago, but this game deserves the effort. With another quality
    fighting game to their name, Tobal, Square decided to release this 
    excellent game. For once, you could say it's realistic fighting. Instead
    of taking damage and adding it all up, if you get hit in the arm, 
    it falls off. Get a leg chopped off, and you'll limp for the rest of
    the battle. It's very fun.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    2)How to Get to the Well
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There's two endings for each character: one is achieved by defeating
    all your enemies normally, the other is achieved by going to the
    well and fighting in there. Here's how to get there:
    
    *You must wait for your enemy to show up before going on to the next
    area, and follow the Code of the Bushido*
    
    -Run all the way up the road and through the tunnel.
    -Go across the bridge, turn left and climb up.
    -Go forward, into a new area.
    -Go forward, turn right and past the building.
    -Drop down into a new area.
    -Climb into the bamboo.
    -Get up the ledges.
    -Jump over the fence, into the mud.
    -Go forward, drop into the water/ice.
    -Cilmb up, head left.
    -Jump/climb the stairs.
    -Head up the path, exit via the corner.
    -Climb up into the new area.
    -Jump into the well.
    
    You'll get it downpat after a couple of times.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    3)Bushido Code
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Being a bushido game, you have to observe the code when fighting. 
    This means:
    
    1. No smacking your opponent when he's lying on the ground.
    
    2. No whacking your opponent in the back.
    
    3. No slicing your opponent when they are climbing a wall to get away
       from you. Sucks, huh.
       
    4. No beheading your opponent before they are ready. Why are their 
       speeches so long anyway?
       
    5. No blinding yout opponent by throwing something at them (dirt,
       snow, etc.)
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    4)Characters and Moves
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I've just named the moves after what they look like =)
    
    Red Shadow
    
    She is the second fastest character in the game. She is best used with
    the lighter weapons such as the saber and the long sword. Her agility
    is her main weapon, and use that to the full.

    Utsusemi's son is very, very quick and agile (he's the fastest 
    character available), but he lacks power. But when using the saber
    and the rapier, he's so fast that you won't need much power at all.

    Mikado
    -------------------------------
    
    Mikado is a well balanced character. At first glance you'll probably
    think, hey, she'll do well with the Katana/Long Sword, but she really
    canes with those bigger weapons, especially the Naginata and Nodachi.
    She's pretty fast with those weapons, so she's a great choice.

    He is the most balanced male in the game. He's got great speed and
    is pretty powerful. Now, you probably think he's great with the 
    Nodachi and Naginata. Well, think again. His power lies in the Long
    Sword, Broadsword, and the Rapier.

    The master. He is one of the most powerful characters in the game, and
    shows it while using the Katana and Nodachi. While using weapons like
    the saber and rapier though, he becomes a bit vunerable, and is at
    home using the power weapons.
