    The main character of the game and the warrior we play.He is an 
    intelligent warrior who is well known around Japan although he is only 
    24.After receiving a letter from his cousin Princess Yuki he heads 
    towards Inabayama castle to find that she has been kidnapped. 
    A kunoichi(female ninja)who was sent to assassinate Samanouske but 
    instead gains trust in him.We play as Kaede twice in the game when 
    Samanouske dissapears.Although she is quite weak she gains in speed and 
    sometimes can enter places that Samanouske can't. 
    Samanouske's cousin who is about 19 years.She constantly longs to see 
    the world and escape the life in which she is to soon have an arranged 
    marraige.She envies Kaede and is a kind noble woman.She seems to be the 
    only person in the Inabayama castle to notice the strange disappearances 
    of some of the maids and servants. 
    A young boy whose parents were killed at war several years ago.He 
    befriends Princess Yuki and is found wandering around The Keep by 
    Samanouske.He is about 12 years old. 
    Leader of the Oda clan,Nobunaga died one year ago and was resurrected by 
    a top class demon called Guildstern.After making a Contract with 
    Guildstern and Fortinbras,Nobunaga plans to take over the world bit by 
    bit starting with Nanamagari. 
    One of Nobunaga's top ranking officials.He is quite small and nimble,so 
    because of this he is referred to as the "monkey man".During the game he 
    tries to make Samanouske a member of the Oda clan but fails.He is one 
    day destined to conquer the world under a new name....Hideyosho 
    There are 4 groups of items in the game. 
    1.MAGIC:Items that use magic to heal,power up or attack with
    2.SPECIAL:Used as tools(sometimes they have no important use)
    3.SPECIFIC:These items are used as keys etc.
    4.BOOKS+NOTES:Gives you translations and information.
        There also 5 types of chests
    1.NORMAL CHEST:Small red chests with gold lining.
    2.TREASURE CHEST:Big brown chests
    3.TRICK TREASURE CHEST:You open this by getting the right combination
    4.CUPBOARDS:These are small orange parts of the wall you cut in order to 
    get whatever is inside.
    5.QUIZ CHEST:You need books to translate the answer to open these.There 
    are 4 of these.
    1.Magic items: 
    These plants a common and will restore half of your vitality when 
    used.They are found in normal chests or growing in the ground.Although 
    they are useful still they are not strong.Save up on herbs to get 
    Medicines are not as common as herbs because they restore all of your 
    vitality.Instead of using herbs you can enhance them into medicines with 
    about 1,000 red souls.Only use medicines when against bosses and save 
    plenty for the final boss. 
    These mysterious stones are dotted along Nanamagari and are 
    invisible.There are about 20 and if you finish the game with all of the 
    in your inventory a secret will be your reward.  
    This items is very helpful but also extremely rare.In fact there are 
    only two in the whole game,they are found in the Dark Realm and the East 
    Area.If you have one in your inventory when you die not only will come 
    back to life but your vitality will be completely restored. 
    These two items are essential and are dotted around the place.They are 
    either dropped by soldiers,found  in Quiz Chests or in normal 
    chests.Power jewels increases your vitality gauge while magic jewels 
    increase your magic gauge. 
    These items are very powerful.When used it  creates a large  circle 
    which kills everything inside it instantly so you can absorb the demons 
    souls.Like the talisman there is only two in the whole game.One is found 
    in the West Area and another is found in the Dark Realm.The last one is 
    found on top of the Tall Building in the East Area. 
    This orb creates the Raizan.It is the  most powerful magic attack in the 
    game.When you use it Samanouske will automatically slash an enemy with 
    repeatable lightning slashes,sometimes even incinerating the enemy.It 
    will open up doors with thunder(blue)crystals. 
    This is the second most powerful attack.The orb itself creates the 
    Enryuu.Unlike the Shinden it will use magic even if you are not fighting 
    an enemy.When you use it a flame will come out of the sword & set 
    anything it touches on fire.With this orb you can open doors with 
    fire(red) crystals. 
    This orb forms the Shippuu.Although it is useful its magic is weak.When 
    you use it Samanouske spins the Shippuu around to form a tornado.It best 
    for hard  reach enemies,some bosses and when your surrounded by a large 
    group of energy.Like the Kouen and Shiden it takes 2,000 red souls to 
    enhance it to lvl.2 and 4,000 red souls to enhance to lvl.3.You can use 
    this to open doors with tornado  (green)crystals. 
    These are pools of water that help you recover magic.Whenever you are 
    low on magic they will throw blue spirits to fill your magic meter.There 
    are only 3 in the whole game:In the Sentry Box and the candle puzzle in 
    the Keep and the Demon World.They can be used over and over again.
    These are small orbs which contain 500 red souls.Like the Magic Pools 
    there are only 3 in the game but they can only be used once.They are 
    found in the 5th floor of the Keep,oppisite the West Area statue and the 
    East Area gardens.
    This strange item is a gift to you from the Clan of Ogres.It is capable 
    of taking the souls of demons when you kill them.You can enhance it by 
    collecting 20,000 souls and entering the enhance screen.Also to enhance 
    it again collect 50,000 souls and enter the enhance screen.
    Special Items:
    A strong rope ladder made of cotton found in the Underground Temple 
    inside the Trick Treasure Chest.It is used to go down into the drained 
    moat on the west side of the keep.The wooden ladder is found in the 
    Underground Tunnel and is your only means to get to the Keep.
    This set of tools helps ninjas like Kaede open locked doors and disarm 
    traps.With this you can go through doors that Samanouske can not open.as 
    Kaede in the west and east areas.This will help you get the great bow 
    and will get you to the prison.
    This item is the most useless thing in the whole game.When you obtain it 
    in the Keep Underground you will be able to talk to the dead soldiers 
    lying around the keep.When you have it a soldiers "soul" will hover 
    above his body and you just have to press the X button.
    This bell is said to have the power to heal the tormented souls of the 
    dead.........It is found in the Keep Underground.
    This is found in the West Area and is a useful item if you are looking 
    for the fluorite pieces.It will make your search easier by making them 
    visible(as they will glow).
    In the inventory in it says it will awaken a sword and that's exactly 
    what it will do.When you return from to the Keep from the Underground 
    Tunnel,go to the strange man in the Sentry Box.He will ask you to go to 
    the Dark Realm.If you do go and finish all 20 levels you will receive 
    the ocarina in a chest.
    Specific items:
    To open the door on the 4th floor you must find these two pieces and 
    insert them into the "keyhole" of the door on the 4th floor of the 
    Keep.The right crest piece is in the Conference Room and the left piece 
    is in the Storage Room.
    As Kaede you will need to find a key to the prison.Beside a dead guard 
    is the gear which you need to use in the West Area Library to open the 
    secret door.
    When you are in the West Area as Kaede you will need the gold and silver 
    plates in order to enter the prison.The silver plate is in the West Area 
    Library and the gold plate is in the West Area Burner Building.Later on 
    as Samanouske you will find the Evil Plate in the Underground Tunnel.
    As Samanouske finding this at the North Gate will let you open a closed 
    door in the West Area.After opening it you will find the Matchlock.
    Although they sound like weapons they are actually keys because of their 
    thick decorations.The decorated sword is found at the North Gate and is 
    they key to the East Area where the decorated arrow is found in the East 
    Area and is essential for getting the Great Arrow.
    These two items are found in the East Area and are essential items to 
    enter the Demon World.As Samanouske you will find the Great Bow in the 
    floating temple and as Kaede you'll find the Great Arrow in the Bishamon 
    These are special keys that open doors with coloured ink.There are 3 
    doors like this:the entrance to the West Area,the entrance to the 
    Underground Tunnel and the entrance to the Boatyard.As Samanouske you 
    will find the Blue Key in the Trick Treasure Chest in the Keep 
    Underground.As Kaede you will find the red key in the Keep,and the blue 
    key in the locked chest.
    You start the game with the normal sword.It is pretty weak and as soon 
    as you get a better one you shouldn't use it again.The Bishamon Sword on 
    the other hand is the most powerful sword in the whole game and unlike 
    the normal sword it has a magic attack yet doesn't use any magic.It's 
    magic attack is very strong and the sword itself can kill most demons in 
    one hit although you get it just before the last boss.To get it you must 
    get the Bishamon Ocarina and use beside the Magic Pool in the Demon 
    These are the 3 swords created by the Shinden,Kouen & Arashi.The Raizan 
    is very powerful and has strong magic attacks.It is also fast.The Enryuu 
    is the strongest sword but is quite slow and has medium magic attack.The 
    Shippuu is very fast but both its magic and its strength are weak.There 
    is no best sword between the 3 of them,just use your favourite.To 
    enhance all 3 of them to level 2 you need 3,000 red souls.To enhance 
    them to lvl.3 you need 6,000 red souls.
    The bow is a very useful weapons which can be used for killing arches or 
    any other hard to reach enemiesd.You can even you use it for bosses and 
    setting of mechanisms.Whatever you do with it watch your ammo because 
    there isn't much of it.You can enhance a normal arrow to a fire arrow 
    with 200 red souls.
    This is the coolest weapon in the whole game but sadly you get it half-
    way through the game which is such a shame.It is pretty powerful and 
    like the bow its versitile.It uses gunpowder and like the arrow there is 
    limited ammo.With 100 red souls you can change a bullet into a stronger 
    Burst Bullet which can hit multiple targets.
    Armour is an essential item for Samanouske and can be the difference 
    between life and death.There are 3 types of armor:Normal,Holy,Great.
    At the start of the game you have NORMAL ARMOR necause it is used by all 
    warriors.The HOLY ARMOUR is found in the 3rd floor of the keep.It offers 
    more protection and prevents Skull Demons from using their absorb 
    attack.The GREAT ARMOUR is found in the East Area in a trick treasure 
    chest and offers the most protection and like the HOLY ARMOUR it does 
    not let Skull Demons use their absorb attack on you.
    These are they 3 weapons that Kaede has.The normal knife is fast but 
    both weak and short,but the sacred knife is much stronger yet is weak 
    compared to Samanouske's swords.The kunai are weapons that Kaede can 
    throw at enemies and are best used against strong enemies.Kaedes weapons 
    are weak but unlike Samanouske she is very quick so here is a list of 
    CHOPPED LIVER: When attacking an enemy hold the R1 button and hit the 
    square button.
    FROG LEAP: While attacking an enemy hold R1 and run towards the enemy 
    and keep hitting the square button.
    DEEP THROAT:After jumping behind the enemy run up towards his back and 
    press the square button.
    BACKFLIP:Hold R1 and press down on the D-pad.
    They are 4 classes of demons.Each class symbolises there strength,power 
    and how much souls they give out and size.All demons have a weak point 
    which means only one hit is required.This looks like a yellow streak and 
    happens when an enemy lets its guard down.I have weak points for some 
    enemies but I'll update it soon.
    These Demons are plentiful and are quite easy to kill and take out very 
    little damage from you.Although when groups of them attack with stronger 
    demons they can be pests.
    Moves:Stab,Slash,Demon Cry and Charge.
    These are demons with bright red hats and wear green clothes.They seen 
    to be the remains of dead soldiers seeming as they are skeletons with 
    rotting flesh and blood.Their moves are weak except for slash,which can 
    take out some energy.They are common and don't give you much 
    souls.They're weak point is when they do Demon Cry just before the 
    charge at you.
    Moves:Blade slash,Blade charge.
    These three green-eyed freaks are very fast and powerful as their Blade 
    charge can take a lot of your energy away quickly.Because they are fast 
    they focus on the element of surprise and seem to pop out of 
    nowhere.Sometimes you can hear their two blades hitting each other 
    without even seeing each other.They are very common at first but after 
    playing as Kaede in the West Area they are never seen again.Their weak 
    point is straight away when they get up.
    Moves:Slash,Double slash, Demon Cry,Spike Roll
    These demons are quite common and appear around The Keep Entrance the 
    Drained Moat and the South Area Bridge.They are small demons with a 
    small sword.They have bulky backs with spikes and small legs which makes 
    them slow.The only strong move they have is the spike roll which is also 
    their weak points.As soon as they start the Demon cry hold the L1 button 
    and before they hit you with the spike roll let go and press the square 
    button quickly.   
    Hercubites or Beetle Demons are attack in groups and are usually 
    followed by much stronger demons.They have only one move which is quite 
    strong and can drain a lot of energy.They themselves are actually very 
    strong and it will take you a while to kill them even with a level 3 
    sword,but they are powerless against burst bullets and fire 
    arrows.They're weak point is when lunging themselves towards you to bite 
    Skull Demons are one of the most annoying enemies in the whole game 
    mainly because they steal the souls from any enemy that has just 
    died,with their vacuum attack.They are large clouds made up of many 
    skullsAlthough they're vacuum is bad it will multiply each soul they 
    steal by two.Their absorb attack is when they grab onto your gauntlet 
    and steal blue and red souls from it.Soon later they may become full of 
    souls that they may start to spin and soon disappear.This is their weak 
    point and they can be killed with anything.Getting your gauntlet 
    enhanced will mean that your "vacuum" will be much stronger.Also finding 
    the Holy Armour will prevent them from doing their absorb attack.
    Move:Bow shot
    Archer Demons can absolutely annoying because they choose to sit in very 
    high ground.Even though they're energy is extremely low they do give you 
    a lot of souls.Because they choose to attack you from high places the 
    best weapons to use are either the matchlock,wind attack or arrows.
    These demons are basically plant-like demons that are extremely rare and 
    in fact have abousolutey no moves at all.They only thing they do is 
    block up passageways.Because they grow in groups they give tons of 
    souls.They can be killed with a strong sword.
    Middle class demons require a lot more than just running up to them and 
    hitting them over and over again(except if you're vitality bar is long 
    and you have a level 3 sword).They require running up to them,then move 
    back once they made a move and then hit a few times.Because they are 
    stronger they give a lot of souls.
    Moves:Upward slash,Downward slash,Sword slash,Double slash,Choke,Block
    Samurai demos are recognisable by their long arms,red armour and 
    distinctive growls.Their moves are quite strong but their most powerful 
    attack is the Choke where they pick you up from your neck and slowly 
    kill you.Although they are strong a level 3 lightning and fire attack 
    will incinerate them instantly in one go.Their block is powerful and if 
    it does occur that they block an attack the it'll slash you before you 
    can move.If you ever manage to be picked by their choke attack keep 
    pressing the square and circle buttons.
    Moves:Slap,Tentacle tunnel,Tunnel slap,Grab + Stab
    This freaky creature is Guildstern's newest creation which is difficult 
    in groups.It is wearing armour and has two tentacles instead of arms,has 
    large white eyes and a soft body which is the reason he is 
    annoying.Because of its soft body you can easily chop it in 
    half.Great!That is until both his legs and chest turns into two more 
    Reynaldo.Some of the Reynaldo's attacks are weak except the Grab and 
    Stab where he grabs you and hits you with two spikes on his back.His 
    annoying move is the Tunnel slap,where he puts his tentacle underground 
    and slaps you even if your nowhere near him.Even worse is the Tentacle 
    tunnel which is the same as tunnel slap except he holds onto your leg so 
    your stuck and you're an easy target for other enemies.
    Moves:Slash,Blade charge,Needle throw,Shadow leap,Needle Stab.
    These are stronger versions of the blade demons as the have the same 
    moves(and a some more)but look different.They have three purple eyes,are 
    faster,have needles on their hands instead of blades and wear black 
    robes.Their most annoying yet weak attack is the Needle Throw.This is 
    where they throw sharp needles at you.The Shadow leap is cool but 
    definitely confusing as you don't know whether it'll jump above you or 
    stay in place.
    Moves:Axe swing,Axe swing combo,Downward Axe Swing,Slash,Double 
    These hefty brutes are bigger and faster than samurai demons.They carry 
    a big steel axe which takes out a lot of health.They are huge demons 
    with fur,two horns tipped with red and they usually block your attacks 
    and the give you a Downward Axe Swing.An Axe swing combo consists of a 
    downward axe swing and then an Axe swing.Usually it only takes one hit 
    from a lvl.3 magic attack to kill these quickly.
    High Class Demons give more souls than middle class demons and are 
    harder to kill.Sometimes it may take 2 or 3 lightning attacks.There are 
    only 3 types of High Class Demons.
    Moves:Exactly the same as the SAMURAI DEMON
    This demon is exactly the same as the Samurai Demon except a few 
    things:it has a wooden shield(big deal!!!),it's darker(WOW!!!) and it is 
    stronger than the normal Samurai Demon(OH GOD NO!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    Moves:Jump swipe,Swipe,Jump boomerang,Boomerang.
    This Demon is an excellent hunter as it uses stealth(like the monster in 
    the film PREDATOR)in order to kill humans.It moves are a bit strong but 
    it is quite slow.When it uses stealth the outline of its body and its 
    footsteps are only visible until it jumps up into the air and shows 
    itself.If you manage to stab it while it is on the ground then it will 
    die instantly usually giving you lots of yellow souls.
    Moves:Downward Axe swing,Upwards axe swing.
    These Demons are a light shade of green and are twice as strong and 
    harder versions of the Minotaur Demons and so may take either 2 or 3 
    lightning attacks.Not only that but because they have a bigger axe(I 
    mean huge)made of bronze(Bigger than the Minotaur Demons axe).It's best 
    to use magic only.
    Top Class Demons are the games bosses(except Guildstern).You fight them 
    in a battlefield which is closed off and the give tons of souls.

    7 - This is found in the East Area on a door.Saimyou is dying and  
        writes how to get into the Demon World.      
    Also there are coloured books found in the Keep and the East Area that 
    are written by Guildstern who writes about his fellow 
    demons,Nobunaga,Princess Yuki and the Apocalypse.Although they have 
    nothing to do with completing the game they do tell you what's going on.   
    After finishing a boss backtrack in order to get more red souls etc.Try 
    different ways to kill different enemies in order to get more souls.Keep 
    going into a room or place until all enemies are dead.Save as much as 
    you can in case you die and when you are about to face a boss.Conserve 
    herbs to enhance them and also keep medicines until you face Fortinbras 
    or when you play as Kaede.When you play Kaede be careful and don't waste 
    any talismans until you face Frotinbras.Get power and magic 
    jewels.Enhance items when you get the chance.
    Always check your map to see if there are places where you have not 
    been.Enhance orbs before you enhance weapons so you can enter all 
    blocked doors quickly.When a door is blocked by a crystal you need a 
    certain orb at a certain level. eg.A door with three fire crystals 
    requires a lvl.3 KOUEN.A door with two wind crystals requires a lvl.2

    to,destroy the 2 crates to reveal a chest with a MEDICINE and enter the 
    door to your first boss.
    Moves:Swing,Double Swing,Head Smash,Charge
    This hefty brute is quite easy although he blocks off your only way 
    out.His moves are quite strong and are easy to block except the double 
    swing.The battlefield is a large square room with a large fire in the 
    middle which gives you a fair chance.
    The best tactics for this boss is to run up to him and either use a 
    magic attack or just hit him repeatibly.If your RAZIAN is at level 3 
    then you'll make short work of him.If you use the lightning attack then 
    he'll give you lots of souls.Soon he'll turn red and will start to 
    charge at you.When he does this run away and attack him when he bangs 
    into a wall.
    After Orsic dies a new path will appear.Go through it and open the chest 
    for another scroll.Go through the door and in the next room look for a 
    piece of FLUORITE behind the vases.Then go through the hallway with blue 
    torches on the wall and go into the next room to meet Guildstern.After a 
    small chat he'll release a Reynaldo.
    Try to stab him not slice or slash him to prevent him from being cut in 
    half and turning into another Reynaldo.When he is dead pick up the KOUEN 
    which is in the top left corner.Now go back to where Orsic was,his body 
    has decomposed and some Skull Demons have appeared and are taking more 
    souls from him.After you have killed them all and have the souls go 
    outside the door with a fire crystal on it.Save your game(Because a hard 
    part is coming up).Go up the ROPE LADDER and kill the Minotaur Demon and 
    quickly kill the Skull Demons before they dissapear.Now go back into the 
    Courtyard and use the KOUEN to go inside the Keep.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~BOSS:MARCELLUS JR.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Moves:Double chop,Downward swing,Stab,Shield hit,Wind stab,Stab 
          combo,Spin combo.
    Marcellus is a tough warrior as most of his attacks are combos.All of 
    his moves are completely powerful especially the wind stab(which comes 
    from the ARASHI).The battleground is on the Keeps roof which gives you 
    lots of space.Worst of all is the really bad camera angles.Because he 
    has a shield made of steel it can block a lot of your moves.After a 
    while his shield goes away and he becomes more prone to magic 
    attacks.Remember using magic is necessary
    First use as much lightning attacks as possible.Also if he has his 
    shield hit that as many times as possible because it releases souls.When 
    his shield is gone use the fire attack to quickly put them out of his 
    When he is dead,collect the souls and pick up the ARASHI.Now go outside 
    and open the door with the green crystal to Yumemaru.
    Yumemaru is taken to the rest area on the first floor where he is joined 
    with Kaede.Samanouske tells him about the world outside of Japan.He 
    talks about why Princess Yuki brought Yumemaru into the royal 
    family.Then out of the blue a maid for Princess Hatsui,comes into the 
    room.She says that her name is Nui and tells Samanouske that Princess 
    Yuki is underground and then faints.

    Keep and enter the small door near the exit of the Keep.Then go through 
    the door with 2 lightning crystals.Then go through the next room with 2 
    or 3 Blade Demons and the next room contains 3 orbs.First pick up the

    2 remaining orbs to activate the fire orb.Finally take out your SHIPPUU 
    and use it on the last orb to activate.Walk down the stairs to reach the

    chest,open it to get the PURIFIER BELL and return to the Demon 
    Libary.When you are back at the magic mirror in the Demon Library and 
    save.Now straight away check your map and see where you have not been so 
    go back to the door blocked by ghosts.Use the PURIFIER BELL to get rid 
    of them.Now the Underground Science Lab is acessible.Go through the door 
    and you'll find yourself in a hallway with Samurai Demons in glass 
    tubes.As you run down the hallway about 3 of them break out of the 
    glass.Kill them and when you reach a door enter the Dome Room.You'll 
    find yourself in a hallway full of Reynaldo,kill them and enter a door 
    with two wind crystals.Inside you'll find a Samurai Demon so kill it and 
    beside the door you'll find a FLUORITE piece in a torture box,shaped 
    like a human.At the back pick up the BYAKKO VOL.4 on the desk and the 
    APOCOLYPSE#1 on the table with the burning crystals.Also there is a 
    trick treasure chest.
    To open it spin:Middle Grid,Left Grid,Right Grid.

    Lab and continue down the hallway until you come to a door.First pick up 
    the FLUORITE piece at the wall.Open up the set of double doors and run 
    towards the gate of the Demon World.
    Tokochiro appears and asks Samanouske to join the Oda clan again but he 
    refuses.Suddenly Tokochiro activates a switch on the gate which then 
    fires a laser beam at Samanouske.Samanouske is lying wounded while 
    Tokochiro stars to laugh menically.Then it shows a fake Samanouske 
    approach Kaede.Nui then kidnaps Yumemaru and the fake Samanouske knocks 
    out Kaede.At the same time Samanouske disappears into a hole.

    Now at the West Area open a chest to find a HERB,kill the annoying Blade 
    Demons and you'll find a FLUORITE piece on a rock after the last 
    torch.In the next area use your KUNAI on the two Warrior Demons and the 
    Samurai Demon,pick up the FLUORITE piece that is found on the right side 
    of the door with 3 lightning crystals.In the next space kill all of the 
    demons in order to get a SOUL ABSORBER from the soldier.To kill the 
    Archer Demons go up the stairs.When you have received your prize for 
    saving the soldier go into the door beside him and you find yourself in 
    a small garden with fireflies.Kill the Blade Demons and pick up the 
    KUNAI in a bush.(by the way you can cut down some trees in here).Use the 
    SHINOBI KIT to enter the Prison Gates.Save your game at the magic 
    mirror.And open up the Quiz Chest.
    Question:Where do the Clan of Ogres meet?
       THE         CHASM              OF             DIMENSIONS    _

     /_____\  | | |  \__|__/      |__|__|        |     |      |   \_/
    This box contains a MAGIC JEWEL.Go towards the Prison gates and pick up 
    the GEAR beside the dead soldier near the magic mirror.Exit here and go 
    back through the garden and when you reach the area with soldier who 
    gave you the SOUL ABSORBER go up the ladder through the door to the Food 
    Storage Room.Save your game at the magic mirror and open the chest for 
    the WEST AREA MAP.Go into the door requiring the SHINOBI KIT.Then go 
    through the small passage killing any of the Warrior Demons until you 
    come to an intersection.To your left is the West Area Library and to the 
    right is the West Area Furnace.Go into the Library and open the two 
    chests which contain a HERB and a scroll,also pick up the SUZAKU VOL.4 
    on top of the shelves.
    Now open a the big drawer on the wall made of wood.Don't pull the 
    tab,instead use the GEAR and then pull the tab.A secret door will be 
    revealed.Pick up the FLUORITE piece and the BYAKKO VOL.1 on the  two 
    desks and then open the chest for the SILVER PLATE.Go outside and enter 
    the Furnace.When you are inside be careful not to get hit by the 
    flames.Pull the chain when the first two flames are not spewed out.Get 
    inside the door before it closes and get the GOLD PLATE on the wall and 
    also the HERB inside the crates.Run back to the Prison Gate and use the 
    SILVER PLATE on the small slot on the left and use the SILVER PLATE on 
    the right slot.Save your game and enter the Prison.
    Inside you'll find that it is on fire.First look for a room at the back 
    of the prison(covered with pots)with a Blade Demon a Warrior Demon.It 
    also has some KUNAI and the GEBNU VOL.2.Enter the door to at the front 
    of the prison and look for the next FLUORITE piece under the stairs and 
    then go up it to find a trick treasure box.
    To open it spin:Middle Grid,Left Grid twice and the Right Grid twice.
    Inside it is the SACRED KNIFE.To equip it enter the weapon screen,press 
    X on the KNIFE and then press X on the SACRED KNIFE.
    Go downstairs out the door.Then kill the Warrior Demon and go down 
    another set of stairs beside the entrance of the prison.Kill the Vine 
    Demons,enter the door.Then try to open the cage in this room.Here you 
    will meet Princess Yuki,although Guildstern will take her away and 
    release a Stealth Demon.Kill the Stealth Demon and you will regain 
    control as Samanouske.
    As Samanouske open the chest for a MEDICINE and save your game.Walk 
    through the passage for another boss.
    Moves:Slice,Triple slice,Agility,Block,Laser beam.
    This boss looks exactly like Samanouske although he has the weak NORMAL 
    ARMOR and the NORMAL SWORD.Never try using combos or stabs as he will 
    either block or using his agility attack(where he runs at you and uses a 
    combo).The battlefield is a small,shallow pool cut off from the rest of 
    the tunnel by magic.
    TACTICS:Especially watch out for his laser beam attack.When he does this 
    use a magic attack or just keep hitting him till he's dead.
    When he is dead continue on and open the small chest to find the EVIL 
    PLATE and also the WOODEN LADDER in the bigger chest.Use the ladder to 
    get out of the well and into the keep.Now go to the door on the 1st 
    floor that couldn't be opened earlier.Use the EVIL PLATE to open it.Go 
    A rather short but cool scene.Nui takes out her hair and slowly turns 
    into her true form Hercubus.She then uses her wings to tear away some of 
    the floor and in the process blocks off the Keep Underground and most of 
    the Keep.At the same time the gate to the Demon World rises up from the 
    ground and then she flies in there with Yumemaru in her hands.Another 
    cut-scene shows a large object that looks like a stone creates a force-
    field around the gate.
    If you want to go to the Dark Realm enter the Sentry Box to meet the 
    weird man who will offer to bring you to the Dark Realm.Here you can get 
    pieces and the BISHAMON OCARINA.There are 20 levels and they require 
    skill and patience.In each level you will be up against different 
    combinations of all the enemies from the game.
    Straight away go outside the Keep and run towards the South Area 
    Bridge.You will meet a soldier fighting off some Hercubites that have 
    come from the East Area.Kill them and go to where they came from.It 
    seems you need a key so run now to the West Area.

    area killing the Archer and Ninja Demons and enter the door with 3

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~BOSS:TROLL KING~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Moves:Thes same as a normal Troll Demon.
    This large brute has a huge axe(10 times bigger than a Troll Demons 
    axe)made of gold.Although he does the same moves as Troll Demons,they 
    are much powerful.If you thought that was bad they are 3 Troll Demons in 
    the same room as him.The room your in is large.
    TACTICS:Use the fire attack straight away because it will burn all four 
    of them.Use it until it is gone and switch to your wind attack and 
    finally your lightning attack.When all four of them are dead collect the 
    Pick up the DECORATED SWORD on the ground.Also pick up the 10 NORMAL

                                   Part 5
              ****************EAST AREA GARDENS*******************
    Now when you enter the East Area walk down the cliff and onto the bridge 
    killing the Blade Demon and the Ninja Demon.Enter the door with two wind 
    crystals and walk past the door to a small gap.Equip the MATCHLOCK or 
    your BOW and shoot the rope across the water to make a bridge fall 
    down.Go across to find 10 NORMAL BULLETS in a chest and a TALISMAN from 
    the cupboard.Go back and pick up a scroll on the door and enter it.After 
    killing two Shielded Samurai Demons pass the door,kill the Ninja Demon 
    and run to the end of the bridge to find the GEBNU VOL.3 on a shelf,10 
    NORMAL BULLETS,and in the  cupboards EAST AREA MAP.Go back and enter the 
    door while killing the Ninja Demons.This is the Tall Building.Inside 
    you'll find a Shielded Samurai Demon.First open the chest beside the 
    door for 10 NORMAL BULLETS and start to go up the stairs while killing 
    the Archer Demons.When you come to another Shielded Samurai Demon use 
    the ARASHI to kill the Archer Demon above you and to take energy out of 
    the Shielded Samurai.Open the small chest to find a MAGIC JEWEL and go 
    up the stairs beside it.When on the roof look for a piece of FLUORITE(it 
    should be glowing if you have the VISION STAFF)go onto the top of the 
    roof and kill the Ninja Demons.When they are dead look for a POWER JEWEL 
    and a SOUL ABSORBER.Go back downstairs and kill the Shielded Samurai 
    Demon and enter the door with 3 wind crystals.After killing several 
    Ninja Demons head for the door past the water.In the next area you'll 
    find a couple of Stealth Demons and a SOUL STONE.Enter the next two 
    doors to find yourself at the Waterfall Path.In this area you'll find 
    two Shielded Samnurai Demons and a rope bridge kill them with your 
    MATCHLOCK using BURST BULLETS or kill them with your BOW and FIRE 
    ARROWS.Make sure you don't cut the rope at either side of the bridge 
    because you'll be here as Kaede later on and she's pretty weak.Don't go 
    over the bridge instead go around it to find a Trick Treasure Chest.
    Key:LL=Lower left  UR=Upper right  LR=Lower right
    To open it spin: LL.Grid,UR.Grid,LR Grid,LL Grid,LR Grid.
    Inside is the GREAT ARMOR.Equip it enter the Lakeside House.Open the 
    chest to get a MEDICINE.Also there is a Quiz Chest. 
    Question:What has been fitted into the gauntlet?
         A  DRAGON               ORB         
      _|_     _     _        __|__   ___    |
     | | |  _/_\_  /_\      |  |  | |_|_|  /|\
     |/ \|  /___\ /___\     |  |  | |___| /_|_\
    Inside you'll find a MAGIC.Go down the stairs to find a FLUORITE piece 
    and then board the boat.When you reach the Lake Building go inside and 
    open the door.Pick up the GREAT BOW.When that happens a cut-scene will 
    show the door close and some Hercubites jump into the building  from the 
    water and surround you.At the Same time Kaede sees the Lake Building 
    from the entrance of the East Area.Suddenly she is attacked by more 
    As Kaede kill the two Hercubites and enter the broken door to the left 
    using the SHINOBI KIT.In this area two more Hercubites will jump onto 
    the bridge so kill them.Open the chest for some KUNAI and enter the 
    door.Now go inside the set of double-doors.Pick up the HERB beside the 
    statue,pick up the APOCOLYPSE#2(In the back) and the FLUORITE piece on 
    the floor.Exit the building and enter the next door requiring the 
    SHINOBI KIT.You'll find yourself at the shore of the lake with 
    Hercubites coming out of the lake.Run away don't bother killing 
    them.When you reach the Waterfall Path you can run across the bridge if 
    its still there or you'll have to kill the Ninja Demons.When in the Lake 
    Side House,save your game and enter the door with the broken 
    keyhole.When inside kill the Warrior Demons and head through the next 
    door.Run past the Shielded Samurai Demon and the two Warrior demons and 
    enter the door.In the next building kill all of the Warrior Demons and 
    destroy all of the vases to find some KUNAI.
    Enter the door which isn't blocked by green ink to find yourself in the 
    Boathouse.Save your game at the magic mirror and climb up the ladder and 
    pick up the piece of FLUORITE and the GEBNU VOL.4,go back down the 
    ladder and into the next room.You now face some Archer Demons and 
    Warrior Demons.Run past the Warrior Demons and kill the Archer Demons.Go 
    into the wooden door and pick up the FLUORITE piece on the chest and 
    pick up the SUZAKU VOL.3 on the shelf,go up the stairs.At the top of 
    this room you'll find a trick treasure chest.
    To open it spin:Left Grid twice,Middle Grid,Right Grid twice,Middle Grid 
    twice to find the DECORATED ARROW.
    Now kill the Ninja Demon that appears and go downstairs.Go out into the 
    room with Warrior Demons and Archer Demons and enter the door and go 
    into the door with a dragon emblem.Go to the back of the statue and take 
    the GREAT ARROW and replace it with the DECORATED ARROW.Now you will be 
    able to get the GREEN KEY from the chest.Exit the room and return to the 
    room with the vases and the door with green ink(Remember save at the 
    magic mirror because you will be facing a boss soon.)When through the 
    green ink door go down the ladder and board the boat and open the door 
    of the Lake House.You'll now regain control as Samanouske.
    Moves:Slash,Double slash,Poison sting.
    This is one of the hardest bosses so straight away get ready for an 
    awesome battle.You battlefield is the inside of the Lake House most of 
    the ground has been removed and there are a few corners that you can 
    stay in to get a few hits.What is hard about Hercubus is that she 
    constantly summons Hercubites yet sometimes she hits them with her slash 
    or double slash attacks.Her poison sting attack is where she charges at 
    you and stings you which can take a lot of energy out of you.You'll know 
    when she is going to do this(When she shouts out "DIE")
    Straight away when you regain control get Hercubus into a corner and use 
    your wind attack and then when she's on the ground use the fire or 
    lightning attack.Also whenever she is in the air use any arrows (both 
    normal or fire arrows).Use BURST BULLETS in your MATCHLOCK as it will 
    hit her and some of the Hercubites.Repeat this until she is dead.
    When Hercubus is dead you will find yourself on the first floor of the 
    Keep.Go to the Dark Realm Gate and use the GREAT BOW to enter the Demon 
                                  Part 6
                **************THE DEMON REALM*************
    When you enter this level Guildstern is here waiting here for you.After 
    a small chit-chat he'll release a stronger Marcellus.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~BOSS:MARCELLUS SNR.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Moves:Exactly the same as Marcellus JR. except Shadow Twirl.
    DESCRITION:He looks the same as the first Marcellus.The battlefield is a 
    large circular stone inbetween two doors.His shadow twirl is very 
    powerful a can make it hard to see what he is going to do yet he can 
    only do it when he has lost his shield.
    When you gain control open the small chest beside the door you entered 
    to find a MEDICINE.Take as many hits as you can from him using 
    combos,bullets,arrows and wind attacks.When his shield is gone use fire 
    and lightning attacks to finish him off.
    After he is dead take all the souls and enter the next door.Save your 
    game and enhance HERBS into MEDICINES at the magic mirror.Pick up the 
    DARK REALM MAP.If you have the BISHAMON OCARINA then use it beside the 
    magic pool to open a secret door containg the BISHAMON SWORD.Pick it up 
    and equip it(go to weapons screen,press X on the NORMAL SWORD and choose 
    Go through the door and go down the pathway killing the Reynaldo.At the 
    bottom you'll find a Stealth Demon.Kill it and pick up the two MEDICINES 
    at the dead end and go through another passage.Enter the door.
    Samanouske finds himself in a large room with Yumemaru and Princess Yuki 
    tied to a wall.Then the king of demons Fortinbras appears from a large 
    door.At the same time Nobunaga walks down into the chamber.Then 
    Fortinbas shocks Princess Yuki with some pink orbs.
    Moves:Each of Fortinbras moves are deadly and precise.The battleground 
    is the large chamber and the camera angle focuses on Fortinbras himself.
    A huge yellow laser beam comes from his eyes and goes up and down the 
    room.The best way to avoid this is to side-step or stay at one the back 
    this move can only be avoided if you stay in one of the back corners.
    Fortinbras spews a large wave of fire across the room from left to right 
    Several pink orbs are put in the air and send waves of electricity down 
    into the ground.To avoid them you can see where they move by looking at 
    their shadows and staying either inside them or away from them.
    Basically he moves his hand horizontally just above the ground.To avoid 
    this stay in the back of the room.
    Fortinbras smashes you to the ground and you may lose a lot of energy.To 
    avoid this move side-step.
    This is his most powerful and most annoying move in the whole 
    game.Fortinbras picks you up and takes you up to his mouth and breathes 
    fire onto your tiny body.Avoid this by keeping away from his body when 
    he is mobbing his hand.
    to defeat Fortinbras keep bashing his snake-like body until his head 
    falls down.Then when this happens hit his eye.
    If you have the BISHAMON SWORD it will be easy.If you have hit his eye 
    many times then here is a tip to get his head down much quicker:Use 
    lightning and fire attacks and then hit his eye with the BISHAMON SWORD.
    If you don't have the BISHAMON SWORD here's what to do.
    Use the SHIPPUU to hack at his body and then hit his eye with the 
    ENRYUU.After a while hack at his body with the SHIPPUU again but then 
    use a lightning attack on his eye.When you he is dead you can sit down 
    and watch the ending.
