    ============
    The Ki Meter
    ============
    
    The Ki meter is something you will rely on throughout the whole game.
    It tells you how aware an enemy is of your presence. Here are what
    each symbol means.
    
    !! = The enemy sees you.
    ! = The enemy sees you, but he isn't coming after you yet.
    !? = The enemy things you are there, but he is not sure.
    ? = The enemy is completely unaware of your presence.
    
    There will be a number in the middle of the Ki meter and goes on a
    scale from 0 to 100. 0 means that there are no enemies anywhere
    near you and 100 means you are right upon an enemy. Your number
    will get higher as you get closer to enemies and lower as you
    go away from enemies. 
    
    =============
    Stealth Kills
    =============
    
    Stealth kills are kills that you make in one hit and the enemy is not
    aware of you. They usually start with a cut-scene but sometimes don't.
    Every time you do a stealth kill, you will get some Kanji in your
    Kanji meter. After you get around 9 Kanji, you will get a new ability
    from a level. To learn more about stealth kills and how to do them, 
    read the Stealth Kills section. 
    
    =====
    Items
    =====
    
    There are lots of items that are hidden around each level and you 
    can pick them up and use them. You also have a items select screen
    before you start a mission. To learn more, visit the Items List 
    section.  
    
    =======
    Scoring
    =======
    
    Each time you do something in a level, you get points. To unlock 
    special things, you need to get the highest grade in scoring.
    Grand Master is the best rank. 
    
    450 + = Grand Master / Master of Assassins for Tesshu
    350 - 445 = Expert Ninja / Professional for Tesshu
    250 - 345 = Ninja / Rookie
    100 - 245 = Thug
    0 - 95 = Novice
    
    You get and lose points for some things too. Here are the things
    and how many points you will earn or lose.
    
    +450 = Never spotted during the mission
    +20 = Each stealth kill
    +5 = Each regular kill
    -150 = First time you are spotted
    -50 = Each time you kill a civilian
    -30 = Each time you get spotted after the first time
    
    =======================================================================
    
    I hope this section kind of helped you out to better understand 
    the game.

    #######################################################################
                                     Tips
    #######################################################################
    
    --------------------
    Stick To The Shadows
    --------------------
    
    When you are in a level that has many enemies, your best bet is to hold 
    R1 and stay as far away as possible. Try to stay in shadowed areas and 
    along walls.
    
    -------------
    Stealth Kills
    -------------
    
    Try to always stealth kill enemies whenever possible. This is the best 
    technique to get through each level.
    
    ---------------
    Know Your Enemy
    ---------------
    
    Before striking at an enemy, it is best to study them. Watch the way 
    they move, their waypoints, when they turn, what they do, and what don't 
    they do. Know them.
    
    ------
    Crouch
    ------
    
    To crouch, just hold R1. I think you should do this as much as possible.
    Your chances of being spotted are lower than they would be when you are
    standing up. If you are spotted, the enemy is a lot less likely to 
    identify you, which will give you some time to run. They will see
    you, but not really know what you are and shrug you off as if you
    were something else or as if they were seeing things. Just always
    stay in stealth mode. Also, if you need to move through water,
    always hold R1 while going through it. This will prevent the
    enemy from hearing you and them getting suspicious. It is very
    useful in most situations. 
    
    ------------------------
    Killing The Wrong People
    ------------------------
    
    When you are playing through the game for real and not for fun, I 
    suggest that you never kill the innocent people. If you do, you will
    lose 50 points for each one you kill and you will lose all of your 
    Kanji that you have obtained from stealth kills. To read more on this,
    go to the Enemies section and look under the enemy that is called
    Geishas. This will help you some more.
    
    ---------
    Use Items
    ---------
    
    If you have items, use them. There is no sense and having them
    and not using them. They all have their pros and cons so read
    the Items List section for more details on when it is best to use
    certain ones and when you shouldn't use certain items. You don't 
    have to use all of the items that you have in a level, but if you
    have them and you could use them to help you for the better, you
    might as well. 
    
    --------------------
    Jumping And Dropping
    --------------------
    
    When you are jumping or dropping off of something, I suggest that
    you always hold R1 and get in stealth mode until you hit the ground.
    This prevents your character to hesitate and it also prevents a guard
    that is near from hearing you. This could mean the difference of losing
    no health and losing some health. 
    
    ---
    Run
    ---
    
    Points-wise and health-wise, it is better to be spotted, run away
    and come back for a stealth kill than it is to just kill the guard
    head on. This can conserve health and give you points. A good thing
    to do is look for something to grapple to or run behind something
    and hide. Just stay there until things calm down and then try
    again to get the stealth kill.
    
    -----------------
    Don't Get Spotted
    -----------------
    
    Do your best to not get spotted at all. You lose 150 points
    for the first time you are spotted and 30 points for every time
    after that. Points matter because you need so many points to get
    Grand Master ratings for Rikimaru and Ayame and Master Of Assassins
    ratings for Tesshu. You need these ratings to get cool things out
    of the level that you are currently playing. 
    
    ----------------------------
    Don't Try To Kill Everything
    ----------------------------
    
    Don't try to go Rambo and kill everything in the map. You should
    always avoid any unnecessary fights to conserve health. This might
    even help you conserve points too because if you don't fight someone
    that would normally spot you, you will keep those points that would
    have been deducted from your score. 
    
    ----------
    Be Patient
    ----------
    
    Without the exception of two missions, the Ayame and Rikimaru missions
    have no time limit at all. Take your time and do everything right. Watch
    your enemy and learn the area. 
    
    ------
    Cancel
    ------
    
    To cancel the use of an item such as the grappling hook, just press 
    R1. This can be helpful when you don't want to grapple to far or you
    clicked the wrong item to use and you don't want to use it. To cancel
    an attack, strafe to the right of left while doing it. To cancel the
    stealth kill animations, just press Circle. This can be useful when
    you have to stealth kill enemies that are close to each other like
    the three men near the key at the beginning of Echigoya. This can
    also be useful when you are invisible for a certain amount of time
    when using the Invisibility Spell. You can cancel zip-lining
    with the grappling hook in mid-air by pressing Triangle.
    
    ------------
    Ninja Vision
    ------------
    
    Ninja Vision is an ability that can help you in many situations.
    It helps you see farther for one thing, and it will also help
    you throw items such as the shuriken farther. Just zoom in 
    as much as you want and aim however you want to aim. This will
    help you aim for enemies that are far away from you. 
    
    -------
    Corpses
    -------
    
    If an enemy sees a corpse, it will run to it. If you hide 
    behind something, wait for the enemy to get near the corpse
    and stealth kill them before they run all the way up to it.
    You can use this numerous times to get a lot of stealth kills
    racked up in the same location. 
    
    ----------------
    Blocking Enemies
    ----------------
    
    If there is an enemy that blocks frequently, go up to him and
    press Circle. You will do a move that is unblockable to the
    enemy.
    
    ----------------
    Multiple Enemies
    ----------------
    
    If you get into a situation where you have to fight multiple
    enemies, I suggest you run. They will murder you if you are
    against 3 or more people. If they surround you, try to jump
    over them because you cannot block attacks from behind and
    you can get away from them if you jump over them. Try to jump
    on a roof or something.
    
    ----
    Pits
    ----
    
    Always remember that the ninja rebirth item will not save
    you from bottomless pits. If you get to a bottomless pit, I 
    suggest for you to look on the other side for something to grapple
    to, which will cause you a sure landing instead of a chance landing
    when you jump. 
    
    -----------
    Up And Down
    -----------
    
    If you come to a dead end, your best bet is to look up for something
    to grapple to or look down for something to go into. Just make sure
    when you look down for something that it is not a bottomless pit 
    because those certainly aren't the way out of levels or 
    anything. 
    
    ------
    Undead
    ------
    
    Physical attacks like the leg sweep and roundhouse kicks will
    always damage the undead. Other than that, you must have the
    Murasama sword to damage them. 
    
    -----
    Doors
    -----
    
    If you get caught in a room by an enemy, run out of a door. 
    The enemy will not follow and you can just go right back in
    for the kill.
    
    --------
    Too High
    --------
    
    Enemies can never reach a place that you can only 
    reach by grappling hook. Use this to your advantage.
    
    -----------
    Poison Rice
    -----------
    
    When an enemy is bending down to get Poison Rice, they are
    completely vulnerable to attacks and will not see you. When
    they bend down, I suggest that you run out and stealth kill them
    so that you will get the rice and the stealth kill.
    
    
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Well those are my tips. Hope they helped you. 
    
    #######################################################################
                                 Stealth Kills
    #######################################################################
    
    Stealth kills are one of the things that make Tenchu so awesome. To do 
    one, go up to an enemy when they do not see you and press Attack. This 
    will show a short, slow-motioned out cut scene showing your character of 
    choice killing his victim in a way different than just slicing or 
    punching (well sometimes). Different stealth kills are achieved when 
    performed from different positions by the enemy. 
    
    The positions from which a stealth kill can be done are from above, from 
    behind, from the left, from the right, in front of, and in mid-air. They 
    are all pretty sweet and you should try them all out. The positions are 
    from above but not too far from them, from above when away from them, 
    from the right, from the left, in front of, behind, and a special 
    stealth kill for when enemies are on a sloped surface. I will now list 
    all of the kill descriptions. 
    
    ----
    Note
    ----
    
    Stealth kills can also be done with weapons such as the blowgun because 
    if the enemy does not see you when you shoot it at him, they will die in 
    one hit. This doesn't have an animation, but it is still a stealth kill 
    nevertheless.
    
    =======================================================================
    Rikimaru's Stealth Kills
    =======================================================================
    
    Rikimaru has six stealth kills. Here they are.
    
    -----
    Front
    -----
    
    This is a really cool stealth kill. Rikimaru stabs the enemy in the 
    stomach. The enemy will bend over with his head down and Rikimaru will 
    swiftly pull the sword out of them.
    
    ------
    Behind
    ------
    
    This is a classic stealth kill. Rikimaru goes behind the enemy and slits 
    their throat and blood gushes everywhere.
    
    -----
    Right
    -----
    
    This is a cool stealth kill. Rikimaru puts the tip of the blade in one 
    hand and the handle in the other and he slits the right side of the 
    neck, then the middle of the neck, and then he slits the right side of 
    the neck. The enemy then kind of twirls on his way to the ground.
    
    ----
    Left
    ----
    
    This is one of my favorite stealth kills for Rikimaru. He stabs the 
    enemy in the middle of the back while staying to their side. He leaves 
    it in for a minute and then rips it out of them. When it comes out, the 
    enemy turns toward Rikimaru because he pulled it out so hard and then 
    Rikimaru gives them one final slash with the sword across their chest. 
    Really cool.
    
    -------
    Mid-Air
    -------
    
    This stealth kill is cool. Rikimaru jumps down and shoves the sword into 
    the top of the enemy's back and then takes it out. Instant death.
    
    -----
    Slope
    -----
    
    This is one of my favorites. Rikimaru hops on the enemy's shoulders. 
    When he does, they kind of tilt their head forward in surprise and 
    Rikimaru stabs them right in the back of the head and it goes through. 
    He takes it out and does a back flip off of their shoulders. 
    
    =======================================================================
    Ayame's Stealth Kills
    =======================================================================
    
    Ayame has six stealth kills. Here they are.
    
    -----
    Front
    -----
    
    This is an awesome yet very fast stealth kill. Ayame lunges both of her 
    swords into the enemy's stomach. She then steps to the side, pulls out 
    the swords, and does a spin. The enemy collapses onto the ground. 
    
    ------
    Behind
    ------
    
    Ayame wraps her arms around the enemy's neck and crosses her hands with 
    the swords crossed. She then slices the enemy's throat with both blades. 
    This stealth kill can sometimes behead people, which is really awesome.
    
    -----
    Right
    -----
    
    This stealth kills is really cool. Ayame hops onto the enemy's shoulders 
    and causes them to fall forward onto their stomach. She then puts her 
    hand on their chin and lifts their head revealing the neck. She slits 
    their throat and then rolls to the right of them. Really awesome to 
    watch and it just shows her quickness well.
    
    ----
    Left
    ----
    
    This is one of the most gruesome stealth kills in the game. Ayame does a 
    roundhouse to the enemy and hits them in the back of the head. The enemy 
    bends over slightly to reveal the back of the neck. While she is still 
    spinning from the roundhouse, she lunges forward and slices the back of 
    the neck, which usually ends up in a decapitation. Really cool. 
    
    -------
    Mid-Air
    -------
    
    This is pretty awesome. Ayame jumps onto the enemy's shoulders and does 
    a 180-degree twist to where she is by the enemy's face. She then falls 
    to her left and the enemy goes with her. Ayame is unharmed but the enemy 
    land on their neck and are dead. Really cool.
    
    -----
    Slope
    -----
    
    This is a cool kill. Ayame jumps onto her enemy's shoulders, twists 
    their neck, and does a back flip. When she lands the backflip, she is 
    standing on the enemy's shoulders. She then finishes the job and twists 
    the head half of the way around. Talk about seeing behind you. Very 
    awesome kill. 
    
    =======================================================================
    Tesshu's Stealth Kills
    =======================================================================
    
    Tesshu actually has seven stealth kills. Here they are. 
    
    -----
    Front
    -----
    
    This stealth kill is really gruesome. Tesshu hits the enemy in the side 
    of the neck. He then throws his hand into the enemy's chest and rips out 
    their heart. The guard just kind of falls down and dies. Tesshu stands 
    there and holds the beating heart in his hand. Really cool and really 
    gruesome. 
    
    ------
    Behind
    ------
    
    This is an awesome kill. Tesshu takes out his needle and puts it in the 
    back of the enemy's neck, right below the skull. He then turns away and 
    the enemy falls to the ground. Pretty good kill.
    
    -----
    Right
    -----
    
    This kill is pretty cool. Tesshu wraps his arms around the enemy's neck 
    and breaks it. He then plunges his arm into their back and breaks a few 
    parts of the spine. Then, the enemy falls and Tesshu does this little 
    bowing thing. Pretty cool. 
    
    ----
    Left
    ----
    
    This is a very awesome kill. Tesshu grabs the guard's left arm and 
    breaks it. He then twirls them around and breaks the right arm. Lastly, 
    he twists their neck all the way around. The enemy walks a little and 
    falls flat on his face.
    
    -------
    Mid-Air
    -------
    
    This stealth kill is really sweet. Tesshu jumps on the enemy and they 
    fall to the ground. He then punches them hard on the back and it causes 
    some of their vertebrae in their spine to break away from the others. 
    The enemy then dies. Really awesome. 
    
    -----
    Slope
    -----
    
    This is a pretty cool kill. Tesshu hops on the enemy's shoulders and 
    lunges a needle through the top of their neck. The enemy dies and Tesshu 
    does a flip off of them. Really awesome kill.
    
    ---------
    With Item
    ---------
    
    Like I said earlier, Tesshu has seven stealth kills. To do this one, you 
    must have the Kumihimo item. If you have it, get above someone and use 
    the item. Aim it towards their neck and the kill will commence. It shows 
    the enemy struggling with the noose around their neck. After a moment, 
    Tesshu will tug the rope and cause them to lift and hang the enemy. 
    Really cool. 
    
    =======================================================================
    Dual Stealth Kills
    =======================================================================
    
    Dual stealth kills are done in the co-op multiplayer mode. It 
    happens when one character goes and starts the stealth kill to an 
    enemy while the other player is pretty close to both of them and 
    press Square too. There is a total of 3 dual stealth kills and each 
    different one is done when you use 2 different characters. 
    
    ------------------
    Rikimaru And Ayame
    ------------------
    
    Ayame jumps and grabs the enemy's head and she horizontally spins
    once around the enemy. At the same time, Rikimaru slashes the guy
    in the stomach area. Then, Rikimaru and Ayame both pounce on one
    of the guy's shoulders and perform a backflip to land behind the 
    guy a few feet. They then cross each other in an X pattern and
    get ready for the last part of the kill. Rikimaru slashes the guy 
    from the front and Ayame from the back. The enemy then falls to 
    the floor while both of the characters are kneeling on their
    swords. 
    
    -------------------
    Rikimaru And Tesshu
    -------------------
    
    Tesshu runs up and breaks the enemy's neck. While he is doing
    this, Rikimaru jabs the sword through the enemy's back. 
    Tesshu then lets go of the enemy and Rikimaru takes the sword
    out of the guy's back and he just falls to the ground in front
    of him. 
    
    ----------------
    Tesshu And Ayame
    ----------------
    
    Ayame rolls through the enemy's legs and ends up behind the
    enemy. The enemy then bends his head forward and Tesshu 
    grabs a hold of it while locking his arms and twisting it
    up his back, which causes the neck to break. Ayame then runs
    and steps on Tesshu's back and jumps off and Tesshu lifts
    the enemy's head. Ayame is now doing a dive and thrusting
    both of her blades into the enemy's stomach. She then does
    several flips off of the enemy. Tesshu then flips the 
    enemy onto the ground and the kill is over.

    New abilities can be obtained for each character by getting a certain 
    number of stealth kills in a level. You need to fill up the Kanji meter 
    (meter that has little symbols that light up when you do a stealth 
    kill). I will give a list of abilities for each character and the level 
    that you have to get the amount of stealth kills on. Tesshu comes with 
    all of his abilities already so I will just list them.

    =======================================================================
    
    In this little mini-section, I will give a detailed explanation of each 
    ability and when it is best to use them. I am going to list them in the 
    order that they will go in so you can press Control and F and see which 
    one you want to read.
    
    Shoulder Thrust
    Somersault Kick
    Ninjitsu Block
    Ninja Vision
    Grappling Hook Combo
    Cling To Ceiling
    Feign Death
    Wall Kick
    Ninja Mind Control
    Wrath of Heaven
    Mimic Animals
    Upper Straight Combo
    Enrage
    Power Block
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Here are the descriptions for each ability. 
    
    ---------------
    Shoulder Thrust
    ---------------
    
    How: Square + Square + Away + Square
    
    This is probably the most useful combo that you will use in the game 
    with Rikimaru. It is like a normal combo, but at the end of it, Rikimaru 
    pushes the enemy with his shoulder over a long distance. This is a great 
    move to use when you are fighting more than one enemy or just one. It is 
    also very useful when trying to fight off bosses. Overall, this is 
    probably the best ability. 
    
    ---------------
    Somersault Kick
    ---------------
    
    How: Square + Square + Square + Square + Away + Square
    
    This is Ayame's alternative to Rikimaru's Shoulder Thrust. This move is 
    her most useful move in combat. When you do the combo, Ayame will do the 
    regular combo and then a little somersault kick at the end. Pretty cool 
    too. This is a great move to use when you are fighting more than one 
    enemy or just one. It is also very useful when trying to fight off 
    bosses. Overall, this is probably the best ability for Ayame.
    
    --------------
    Ninjitsu Block
    --------------
    
    How: Press Circle when an enemy is about to attack
    
    Ninjitsu Block is a very useful ability although it is kind of tricky to 
    pull off. What it does is it blocks the enemy's attack and leaves them 
    off guard. This is a good time to get in a combo or two. Overall, very 
    useful move but it can be kind of hard to pull off. You have to time 
    yourself just right.
    
    ------------
    Ninja Vision
    ------------
    
    How: Hold L1 and move R3
    
    Ninja Vision is a pretty useful ability. It just lets you zoom in with 
    the manual camera. It is good on levels where you are trying to watch an 
    enemy that is kind of far away. A good example of this is the Cemetery 
    level with Ayame. It is very useful there because you have to constantly 
    look for enemies and stuff. Overall, good ability in all situations. 
    
    --------------------
    Grappling Hook Combo
    --------------------
    
    How: Move L3 in a 360 motion + Square + Triangle
    
    This is ability is sort of useful. What it does is it lets you throw a 
    grappling hook at your enemy after you have hit them in the air and 
    bring them back and stand them up. This will allow you to administer 
    move combos to them. This is only useful in one-on-one fights and boss 
    fights really. I hardly ever used it though. Overall, it is a pretty 
    good ability.
    
    ----------------
    Cling To Ceiling
    ----------------
    
    How: Hold R1 while grappling
    
    This is one of my favorite abilities. What it does is it lets you cling 
    to a ceiling and stay up there for a while. When you go to grapple, just 
    hold R1 as you approach the ceiling and you will stick. From above, you 
    can watch enemies, evade enemies, throw down poison rice for enemies to 
    eat and then attack them, and that's about it. It is useful in 
    situations where you have been seen and you are trying to get the enemy 
    off of your back or if you are trying to get a closer look at the enemy. 
    Overall, very good ability. 
    
    -----------
    Feign Death
    -----------
    
    How: Rotate L3 360 degrees + press R1 + Square to attack
    
    This is a pretty useful ability when you are trying to stealth kill a 
    guard that is in front of you and will not turn around. What your 
    character does is they stab themselves in the chest. Rikimaru uses his 
    sword, Ayame her swords, and Tesshu uses his needle. When you fall, the 
    enemy will come and look over your body to see if you are dead. When 
    they do, they are in a perfect position to be stealth killed so press 
    Square when you get ready. You lose so many hit points after stabbing 
    yourself and you lose some more every so often that you are on the 
    ground. You lose like 1 hit point a second. Overall, it is a pretty good 
    ability after you have learned to use it correctly and have had practice 
    with it. 
    
    ---------
    Wall Kick
    ---------
    
    How: Jump towards a wall and press Square
    
    The Wall Kick is a very good maneuver. All you do is run and jump 
    towards a wall. When you get close to it, press Square. Your character 
    will then ricochet in the opposite direction and damage whatever it 
    hits. The downside to this ability is the fact that there is no way you 
    can pull it off whenever the enemy is aware of your presence. They will 
    just automatically block it. When you do it to someone that is unaware 
    of you, it will usually kill the enemy in one hit. It is a pretty good 
    maneuver overall. You just have to learn when and when not to use it. It 
    is a pretty cool looking move though. 
    
    ------------------
    Ninja Mind Control
    ------------------
    
    How: Hold R2 + Up + Down + Square
    
    Ninja Mind Control is a pretty cool ability. When you use it, your 
    character will do a special hit to an enemy and make them get very 
    confused. They will start attacking the other enemies for a limited 
    amount of time. This is a very good move to use when you are going up 
    against a few people. Overall, great move to use when you know when and 
    how to use it.
    
    ---------------
    Wrath of Heaven
    ---------------
    
    How: Press Circle + X at the same time
    
    Wrath of Heaven is the big daddy of all of the abilities. It is the 
    coolest one. You have to have a good bit of hit points to pull it off. I 
    think the lowest I ever tried and pulled it off was 40 hit points. 
    Anyways, after you finish it, you will only have 1 hit point left. If 
    you make contact with an enemy with 100 hit points or lower, you will 
    kill them on contact. When you are going to use this move, you have to 
    time it correctly and line yourself up with the enemy correctly. A miss 
    could mean that the enemy is about to kill you whenever you get done. 
    Just be careful when using it. When you use it with Rikimaru, he charges 
    up and impales his sword through the enemy and holds it there for a 
    while. After a minute or two, he will pull the sword out and lightning 
    will come down and strike the enemy. Ayame's move is different. If you 
    have ever played Shinobi on PS2, it is like how he dashes, but she 
    swipes at them. Like, Ayame looks like a flash of light and she is 
    cutting all of the enemies. Ayame's move is slightly better than 
    Rikimaru's because Rikimaru can only kill one enemy at a time while 
    Ayame kills all of the enemies that are close to her. Even though 
    Ayame's is the most powerful, I think that Rikimaru's looks the coolest. 
    Funny how that works. Overall, the move is very awesome looking for both 
    characters and very useful in the right situations.
    
    -------------
    Mimic Animals
    -------------
    
    How: Press R1 + Circle at the same time
     
    This ability has the same effects as the Decoy Whistle item does. It 
    just makes you make an animal sound. Say an enemy spots you and you run 
    out of a room. The enemy is hot on your track, but your Ki meter is 
    purple with the question mark. Now, you can use the Mimic Animals 
    ability effectively. When you press it, it will make an animal noise, 
    and it is usually of a rooster or dog or something. Well, the enemy will 
    think that they just saw something or something and will no longer pay 
    attention to you, giving you another chance for that stealth kill. I 
    would use it whenever it is needed. Overall, it is a great ability to 
    have.
    
    --------------------
    Upper Straight Combo
    --------------------
    
    How: Rotate L3 in a 360 motion + Square
    
    This is Tesshu's equivalent to Rikimaru's Shoulder Thrust and Ayame's 
    Somersault Kick. When you do the combo, it will make Tesshu do an 
    uppercut and then send a right hand out and hit the enemy causing them 
    to fly through the air. It is a pretty good maneuver in all fights. 
    Overall, good ability.
    
    ------
    Enrage
    ------
    
    How: Circle + X at the same time
    
    Enrage has the effects on Tesshu that the Strength Potion would. It 
    makes him stronger for a limited amount of time. That is all it does, 
    well, besides making his arms glow red. This move is very useful when 
    fighting packs of enemies because you will be able to have to hit a guy 
    less times to kill them and you can move on to others. The ability is 
    overall pretty good. 
    
    -----------
    Power Block
    -----------
    
    How: Press Circle when the enemy goes to attack
    
    This is Tesshu's alternative to the Ninjitsu Block ability. Power Block 
    is a very useful ability although it is kind of tricky to pull off. What 
    it does is it blocks the enemy's attack and leaves them off guard. This 
    is a good time to get in a combo or two. Overall, very useful move but 
    it can be kind of hard to pull off. You have to time yourself just 
    right.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Well that's it. Hope that helped you out.

    Bow And Arrow
    -------------
    
    The bow and arrow can be obtained by killing archers that are on a few
    different levels. Once you do, just walk over them and pick it up. 
    This can be good for certain situations, but I would just not use
    it in most. It doesn't take away too much hit points so I would just
    keep using the sword. If there is an enemy that is far away, you
    might be able to get some use out of this thing. Overall, it isn't 
    as useful as some of your other weapons. 
    
    -----
    Spear
    -----
    
    The spear is less useful than the bow and arrow. It only has 2 different
    move things and it doesn't take away that many hit points. On top of that,
    it swings very slowly. By the time that you get it around to hit the 
    enemy, he could have already started hitting you and stopped the swing. 
    I suggest to just use your sword.
    
    ---------
    Fireworks
    ---------          
    
    Fireworks are very good items to bring along with you if you do not have 
    invisibility spells or chameleon spells available to you. What you do 
    is, press Triangle when they are highlighted, and this will cause 
    Rikimaru to put them on the ground and the fireworks will shoot. When 
    this happens, the guards are going to look up, which will give you a 
    chance to stealth kill them. This is only really necessary to use when 
    there is a guy that doesn't turn around and is always facing you. 
    
    ----------
    Tetsubishi
    ----------
    
    Tetsubishi is kind of like an add-on to the Grappling Hook. It lets you 
    pull enemies over distances. If you have ever played Mortal Kombat and 
    have used Scorpion and did his "Get Over Here" move, well, it is kind of 
    like that except for it doesn't enter them or anything. It is a really 
    useful item when you want to stealth kill someone away from other 
    people. For example, say there are two guys in front of you. Use 
    tetsubishi and pull one back to you and kill him. This will cause you to 
    not have to disturb the other guy and get both stealth kills. You can 
    also use this to pull enemies on roofs with you for a sloped stealth 
    kill.
    
    --------------
    Grappling Hook
    --------------          
    
    The grappling hook is the most important item in the game. It is used to 
    scale walls and you can get on the roof of buildings with it. To use it, 
    hold down Triangle and aim it at a roof or something. Whenever you think 
    you have it in the right spot, release Triangle. This will cause you to 
    "zip" to the area that you highlighted. This can help when you are 
    fighting people because you can pull yourself to a place where they 
    cannot reach you. You can then go back later and get a stealth kill. If 
    you earn the Grappling Hook Combo ability for Rikimaru and Ayame, you 
    can connect combos with the Grappling Hook and make yourself even more 
    of a fierce fighter.
    
    ---------------
    Poison Antidote
    ---------------
    
    In my opinion, this is the most useless item in the game for everyone 
    but Ayame. You see, Ayame can obtain swords dipped in poison, so she 
    needs the poison antidote or it will take her health away. Well, 
    Rikimaru and Tesshu don't have any reason to use this. The poison 
    antidote can also be used to heal you against blowgun shots, which are 
    poisonous. Overall, pretty useless item for Rikimaru and Tesshu, but can 
    be a good item for Ayame. 
    
    ----
    Mine
    ----
    
    The mine is a pretty useful item if you know an enemy's path that he 
    walks. When you place it, it is placed in front of you (make sure not to 
    walk forward or say bye to your health and your unknown presence) and 
    will explode when something walks upon it. It can kill some enemies in 
    one hit and will take away a lot of hit points off of enemies that it 
    doesn't kill. When you use this though, make sure there are not lots of 
    enemies around because it is very loud and will alert other guards to 
    come check out what happened.
    
    ------------
    Colored Rice
    ------------
    
    Colored rice is a useful item in confusing levels like the Limestone 
    Caverns, Gohda Castle, and both of the Tenrai's Fortress levels. You 
    see, when you use it, your character will place a piece of rice on the 
    ground. If you press Select and go to the map, you will notice that 
    there is a little "marker" where you placed it. This will help you make 
    sure that you aren't going the wrong way and make sure that you haven't 
    been to a certain place before. The rice can be eaten by guards so make 
    sure that you have killed all of the guards before placing it or else it 
    will leave the map. Overall, it is pretty useful.
    
    ----------
    Tiger Trap
    ----------
    
    The tiger trap is a very useful item. When you use it, your character 
    will place it on the ground and open up the trap. When an enemy steps on 
    it, it will render him useless and he will not be able to counter your 
    attacks. You can just pummel him to death, however, it does wear off 
    after a bit of time. It can be useful at times, but just make sure that 
    you don't step on it yourself or you will be screwed for a while. 
    Overall, good item.
    
    -----------
    Ninja Armor
    -----------
    
    Ninja armor is one of my favorite items in the game. Not only does it 
    change what you look like, it decreases the amount of hit points you 
    lose from when you get hit. Ninja armor usually makes you look a lot 
    cooler, but I think Rikimaru looks kind of stupid with it. Ayame looks 
    more like a ninja though. The item is not available for Tesshu. Overall, 
    the ninja armor item is very useful and one of the best.
    
    -------------
    Ninja Rebirth
    -------------
    
    The ninja rebirth item is a very good item to bring along with you on 
    your missions. You don't actually use it yourself though. It just stays 
    in your inventory, and when you die, it automatically uses itself. You 
    see, it is kind of like an extra continue. You will die and start off 
    right where you died. Very useful item in later levels like Tenrai's 
    Fortress Part 1 and 2 and the levels with a lot of pitfalls. You should 
    always try to bring one of these on a mission.
    
    ---------------
    Chameleon Spell
    ---------------
    
    The chameleon spell is a great item and one of the most useful in the 
    game. When you use it, your character will turn into an enemy from the 
    level that you are playing until a certain amount of time is up or until 
    you kill someone. Enemies will never think twice about you if you are 
    using it. You can just walk right in front of them and stealth kill 
    them. The item is especially useful when there is someone that can't be 
    killed by going behind them because they never turn around. The easiest 
    way to get a stealth kill is to use this item. While not being as good 
    as the invisibility spell, it is still extremely good. Very useful item.
    
    ----------
    Fire Spell
    ----------
    
    The fire spell item is extremely useful in some situations, but not very 
    useful in others. When you get in a huge fight with 2 or more people at 
    a time, you can use this and it will be of great use. What the fire 
    spell does is it sends a wave of fire all around your character in a big 
    circle. It is effective when fighting one enemy only, but it isn't 
    really necessary. I suggest using this on the Cemetery level if you are 
    having problems with the part near the well and hut.
    
    ------------------
    Invisibility Spell
    ------------------
    
    The invisibility spell is the second most useful item in the game, right 
    after the grappling hook. It renders you invisible for a certain amount 
    of time. A thing that makes it better than the chameleon spell is the 
    fact that you don't automatically re-appear after one kill. You just 
    keep on staying invisible for the amount of time that it is available to 
    be used, which is around 10 to 15 seconds. 
    
    --------------
    Super Shuriken
    --------------
    
    The super shuriken is pretty useful. Unlike a regular shuriken, the 
    super shuriken is around eight throwing knives. You just position your 
    character in a direction, press Triangle, and watch them fly. It is kind 
    of like the fire spell when used. It is strong enough to kill weaker 
    enemies and significantly damage stronger enemies. Overall, pretty good 
    item.
    
    -------------
    Decoy Whistle
    -------------
    
    The decoy whistle is a very useful item. Say an enemy spots you and you 
    run out of a room. The enemy is hot on your track, but your Ki meter is 
    purple with the question mark. Now, you can use the decoy whistle 
    effectively. When you press it, it will make an animal noise, and it is 
    usually of a rooster or dog or something. Well, the enemy will think 
    that they just saw something or something and will no longer pay 
    attention to you, giving you another chance for that stealth kill. This 
    item can also be used over and over so don't worry about conserving it. 
    Use it whenever it is needed.
    
    ---------------
    Exploding Arrow
    ---------------
    
    The exploding arrow is a very useful item that works kind of like the 
    sticky bomb, but without having to press R3. What you do is, you hold 
    down Triangle and aim the exploding arrow. When it gets over an enemy, 
    let go of Triangle and let it fly. The enemy will fly and catch on fire. 
    You can easily kill enemies instantly with this and or damage them 
    significantly. This is one of the best offensive items in the game. This 
    is also very useful in fights where there are a few guys ganging up on 
    you because you can get a few of them down with one arrow. Overall, 
    great item to use.
    
    -------------
    Binding Spell
    -------------
    
    The binding spell item is extremely useful. When it is used, your 
    character will make a special seal on the ground around them. If an 
    enemy walks inside it, they will freeze and be confused. This will make 
    them easy targets and you will be able to kill them easier. Overall, 
    great item. 
    
    --------------
    Stone of Power
    --------------
    
    The stone of power works much like a strength potion except for the fact 
    that it lasts for the duration of a mission. The stone of power will 
    make your character much stronger and will enable you to inflict more 
    damage on an enemy than would be inflicted with the same blow without 
    the stone of power. The item is very useful in fights and boss fights. 
    Overall, great item to use. 
    
    --------
    Dog Bone
    --------
    
    The dog bone is a very useful item. What it does is, it makes a dog come 
    to help aid you in a fight. It is very useful when fighting 2 or more 
    people and you are having a tough time with them. Even though it won't 
    inflict much damage, it can still confuse the enemy or distract them, 
    which would leave you the chance to hit them. Nevertheless, it is always 
    good to have a friend on your side. Overall, good item.
    
    --------
    Shuriken
    --------
    
    The shuriken is like a ninja star. It is a very useful item when trying 
    to distract and or harm an enemy. They will only take away around 20 hit 
    points, but it is still some. It is better than nothing. If you throw 
    them to distract an enemy, try to land them on the path that they walk 
    on. When they bend down to pick it up, you can go in for the stealth 
    kill. Here is a hint for the Echigoya level. On the Echigoya level, 
    there are a few beehives. If you throw a shuriken at them and hit them, 
    bees will come out and attack the nearest person. This is a great way to 
    kill one of the guards. Overall, great item. It will be one of your most 
    used items in some of the levels. 
    
    --------
    Blow Gun
    --------
    
    The blowgun is one of my favorite items in the game. What you do is, aim 
    it and shoot it. It will shoot a poison dart out of it. You can 
    instantly kill an enemy with this if they are not aware of you. If they 
    are aware of you, you can still harm them and poison them. When you 
    poison them, they will lose around 10 health points every so often but 
    this wears off after a while. It is very useful when you can't get a 
    stealth kill by sneaking around or you need a little help in a fight. 
    Overall, very good item. 
    
    -------
    Grenade
    -------
    
    The grenade is a pretty good item. All you do is press Triangle to throw 
    it. It will explode on impact with enemies, but if you miss, it will 
    just go off after a while. The grenade is a very good item when there 
    are not a lot of enemies around in an area. It isn't a good item when 
    there are other guards around because of its loudness. It will attract 
    other guards. If you get in a fight with 2 or more people, you can use 
    this to give you the upper hand. It is also very useful in boss fights. 
    Overall, good item but it has its limits.
    
    -----------
    Smoke Bombs
    -----------
    
    The smoke bombs are very good items in almost any situation. All you do 
    is throw them. Your character will throw it in front of them and the 
    smoke will immediately come out of it. This is a very effective way to 
    get away from enemies that have spotted you or confuse enemies and keep 
    fighting them. For example, if you get caught, you can throw down a 
    smoke bomb and run around the corner or something and hope that they 
    don't find you. If you are fighting someone and you want to keep 
    fighting but play a little dirty, you can always throw it down and make 
    them confused. You can then start pummeling them with attacks.
    
    -------------
    Health Potion
    -------------
    
    The health potion is the item that you will probably use most in the 
    game. All you do is highlight it and press Triangle to make your 
    character drink it. It will fill your life back to 100 hit points, no 
    matter how low on life you were. Overall, this item is extremely useful. 
    I suggest bringing it on all of your missions.
    
    -------------------
    Small Health Potion
    -------------------
    
    The small health potion is a very good item, but not as good as the 
    regular health potion. All you do is highlight it and press Triangle to 
    make your character drink it. It will give you back around 30 hit 
    points. Overall, this item is very useful. If you have health potions 
    available to you, this item is kind of useless although you might want 
    to bring it in case you run out of health potions.
    
    --------
    Caltrops
    --------
    
    Caltrops are a pretty useful item. They are like little tacks that your 
    character will drop behind them. It hurts someone's feet when they step 
    on them and will cause them to stop for a bit. This is very useful when 
    trying to evade some enemies or something. Very good item. 
    
    ----------
    Poison Rice
    -----------
    
    The poison rice is probably one of the best items in the game. It is a 
    bowl of rice that your character will throw in front of them. If an 
    enemy sees it, they will bend down to pick it up and eat it. If they eat 
    it, it will poison them and temporarily paralyze them, leaving you an 
    open chance for a stealth kill. You could eventually kill them after 
    using enough rice balls though. A little hint is to throw the ball, wait 
    for the enemy to pick it up, and right before he eats it, kill him. This 
    will get you the rice and the kill. Overall, very good item.
    
    -----------
    Sticky Bomb
    -----------
    
    The sticky bomb is probably one of the best offensive weapons in the 
    game. What you do is, you highlight it and aim it at an enemy. When you 
    think that you have it on target, let go of Triangle to throw it. When 
    it lands on something, it will stay there (unless a guard picks it up). 
    If it lands on an enemy, it will stay on them. Now when you want to 
    detonate it, press down on the R3 button. This will cause it to explode 
    and usually kill anyone in its path. Very good item. 
    
    ---------------
    Strength Potion
    ---------------
    
    The strength potion is a pretty good item. For a limited amount of time, 
    it will build your strength up and you will be a lot stronger, meaning 
    your attacks will do much more damage. It is very useful in boss fights 
    and in battles with 2 or more enemies. Overall, good item for a few 
    situations.
    
    ------
    Dokuto
    ------
    
    Dokuto is a weapon that is exclusive to Ayame. This is a special pair of 
    swords with poisoned blades. When you select them, it will automatically 
    start poisoning you, but if you have the poison antidote, you will lose 
    no health at all while it is in use. Anyway, it helps because it will 
    poison enemies and take more damage off of them. It is a very affective 
    weapon when used with the poison antidote. If you don't have the 
    antidote, I suggest not even using this item because it will do more 
    harm than good. Overall, it is a good item but can have major flaws. 
    
    ------------------
    Kasumi and Shizuku
    ------------------
    
    Kasumi and Shizuku is an item that is exclusive to Ayame. They are short 
    swords just like Ayame's regular weapon, except for the fact that it 
    kills the undead. It is it's only real use. When you have it selected, 
    you will drain health for the time that you use it. That kind of ruins 
    the weapon though. Overall, good item. 
    
    ------------
    Fugaku Sword
    ------------
    
    The Fugaku sword is an item that is exclusive to Rikimaru. The Fugaku 
    sword is a very useful item. It is just like Rikimaru's other sword, 
    except for the fact that it has much stronger attacks. It can help in 
    levels where there are harder enemies and stuff. I suggest using it if 
    you have it. Overall, great weapon.
    
    --------
    Muramasa
    --------
    
    Muramasa is an item that is exclusive to Rikimaru. It is a big sword 
    just like Rikimaru's regular weapon, except for the fact that it kills 
    the undead. It is it's only real use. When you have it selected, you 
    will drain health for the time that you use it. That kind of ruins the 
    weapon though. Overall, good item. I would only use it when necessary 
    though.
    
    --------
    Magazine
    --------
    
    The magazine item is exclusive to Tesshu. It is kind of like Tesshu's 
    alternative to poison rice. If you throw it in front of an enemy, they 
    will bend down to pick it up. A little hint is to throw the magazine, 
    wait for the enemy to pick it up, and kill him right when he is still 
    bended over. This will get you the kill much easier. Overall, very good 
    item.
    
    ----------
    Bamboo Gun
    ----------
    
    The bamboo gun is an item that is exclusive to Tesshu. It is a pretty 
    good weapon. The bamboo gun is actually a gun. What you do is, you lock-
    on to an enemy so that they are in front of you. Then, press Triangle 
    and Tesshu will shoot at whatever is in front of him. This can kill most 
    enemies in one shot and is very useful against bosses. Overall, great 
    item to use in most situations. 
    
    --------
    Disguise
    --------
    
    The disguise item is an item that is exclusive to Tesshu. It is pretty 
    much his alternative to the chameleon spell. When you use it, your 
    character will turn into an enemy from the level that you are playing 
    until a certain amount of time is up or until you kill someone. Enemies 
    will never think twice about you if you are using it. You can just walk 
    right in front of them and stealth kill them. The item is especially 
    useful when there is someone that can't be killed by going behind them 
    because they never turn around. The easiest way to get a stealth kill is 
    to use this item. While not being as good as the invisibility spell, it 
    is still extremely good. Very useful item.
    
    --------
    Kumihimo
    --------
    
    Kumihimo is an item that is exclusive to Tesshu. It is kind of like a 
    noose. You have to be above an enemy to use this. I suggest being on a 
    roof. You just aim it at an enemy like the grappling hook and try to get 
    the marker on their neck. When you have placed it right, let go and you 
    will get a secret stealth kill. It is pretty awesome. I'm not positive 
    if this thing can be used when the enemy is aware of you, but I will 
    check later and find out. Overall, the item is really of no use if you 
    can just stealth kill them from behind. If they are in front of you and 
    looking in your direction, it could be a good item to use in that 
    situation. Overall, it is a pretty good item in different situations.
    
    ---------------
    Throwing Needle
    ---------------
    
    The throwing needle is an item that is exclusive to Tesshu. It is pretty 
    much his alternative to a shuriken. It is a very useful item when trying 
    to distract and or harm an enemy. They will only take away around 20 hit 
    points, but it is still some. It is better than nothing. If you throw 
    them to distract an enemy, try to land them on the path that they walk 
    on. When they bend down to pick it up, you can go in for the stealth 
    kill. Here is a hint for the Echigoya level. On the Echigoya level, 
    there are a few beehives. If you throw a throwing needle at them and hit 
    them, bees will come out and attack the nearest person. This is a great 
    way to kill one of the guards. Overall, great item. It will be one of 
    your most used items in some of the levels.
    
    ------------
    Super Needle
    ------------
    
    The super needle is an item that is exclusive to Tesshu. It is pretty 
    much his alternative to a super shuriken. Unlike a regular throwing 
    needle, the super needle is around eight needles instead of one. You 
    just position your character in a direction, press Triangle, and watch 
    them fly. It is kind of like the fire spell when used. It is strong 
    enough to kill weaker enemies and significantly damage stronger enemies. 
    Overall, pretty good item.

    Well that's it. Hope it helped.

                                   Enemies
    #######################################################################
    
    In this section, I will list each enemy and good ways to defeat them. 
    
    ========================
    Samurai Or Ronin (Sword)
    ========================
    
    This is probably one of the easiest enemies in the game. They are pretty
    much the normal guard that you will find spread out throughout most levels.
    Their attacks are pretty easy to block and dodge. They also don't attack
    very often. Even though these enemies are so easy to beat one-on-one, 
    they can be tough when fighting them in groups. These guys usually sport
    around 50 or less hit points. 
    
    ========================
    Samurai Or Ronin (Spear)
    ========================
    
    This is probably one of the easiest enemies in the game. They are pretty
    much the normal guard that you will find spread out throughout most levels.
    Their attacks are pretty easy to block and dodge. They also don't attack
    very often. Even though these enemies are so easy to beat one-on-one, 
    they can be tough when fighting them in groups. These guys usually sport
    around 50 or less hit points. They have a rather large attack range because
    of their spears so try to get behind them or to their side since these guys
    are very slow. You shouldn't have much problem with them.
    
    ======================
    Samurai Or Ronin (Bow)
    ======================
    
    This is probably one of the easiest enemies in the game. They are pretty
    much the normal guard that you will find spread out throughout most levels.
    Their attacks are always long range really. When you get close to them, they
    kind of hesitate for a bit and run a little. They don't always do this though.
    They also don't attack very often. Even though these enemies are so easy to 
    beat one-on-one, they can get very aggravating when you are fighting some 
    other guard and the samurais with bows are shooting at you non-stop. These 
    guys usually sport around 50 or less hit points. Their only real attack is
    to shoot at you and it takes them a little while to get the next arrow 
    out of the holder.

    The dogs are pretty challenging because they are so small and hard to hit.
    If you can manage to sneak up on one, jump and press attack. This is much 
    easier to hit them. These things can kind of make your presence known by 
    barking so more guards will come. They can be very frustrating to fight.
    Just try to hit them whenever they land. Their only attack is to jump
    in the air and bite at you. They always have 5 hit points and only take
    one hit to kill. You can kill them with one shuriken if you hit them 
    with one. 
    
    ===
    Cat
    ===
    
    The cats don't attack you. They merely sleep. If you walk by one,
    it will get out and start making noise and running around the room.
    Their only purpose is to alert the guards of your presence. They
    cannot be killed so don't even try to catch them. 
    
    ====
    Bees
    ====
    
    The only levels that these appear on is Echigoya and the Buddha
    Temple level. They stay in their beehive until they are disturbed. 
    When they are, they attack the nearest person. They can easily 
    kill a guard when they come out of their hive just once. To get them 
    out, simply hit the hive with something. It is easy to hit with a 
    shuriken. After they kill attack something for a bit, they go back 
    into their hive. The person they attack also does a bit of a dance 
    and it is very funny to watch. They can be useful to you or a menace 
    to you.

    Ninja
    =====
    
    The ninjas are very tough enemies. They are very quick and attack
    often. They usually block nothing so you can get a combo or two 
    in easily. They move around a lot and do lots of back flips. 
    They can be very tough to fight in groups. Just try to stealth
    kill these guys. Well, you should try to stealth kill everyone
    in the game, but mainly them since they are so tough to fight
    in one-on-one combat.
    
    ==============
    Kunoichi (Red)
    ==============
    
    These enemies are kind of tough. It is a woman in a red costume.
    Their attacks are very similar to Ayame's, but they aren't as 
    fast or powerful. They are kind of like the female counterpart
    to the ninja. They aren't very tough in one-on-one combat because
    they don't block too often. They do, however, attack whenever they
    get the chance, but they are very easy to block. 
    
    ================
    Kunoichi (Black)
    ================
    
    These enemies are just like the red Kunoichis, except for the
    fact that they are much faster and their attacks are much
    more powerful. It is a woman in a black costume and white hair.
    Their attacks are very similar to Ayame's, and just fast and
    powerful. They are kind of like the female counterpart
    to the ninja. They are pretty tough in one-on-one combat because
    they block often. They attack whenever they get the chance, but 
    they are very easy to block. 
    
    =================
    Geisha (Innocent)
    =================
    
    These are just the innocent civilians that you will come
    into contact with in a few levels. They have around 30 
    hit points and are unarmed. They will run away from 
    you and tell your enemies if they spot you. If you 
    fight them and kill them, you will lose all of the
    Kanji that you obtained from stealth kills. They are 
    not a threat to you in the sense that they will attack 
    you, but they will tell the other enemies about your 
    presence, so they kind of are a threat to you. If you
    are playing the game for fun, I suggest you kill them. If
    you are playing to get new abilities, try not to kill them
    so you don't lose that Kanji. The geishas will appear as
    a bald guy that looks like he is drunk or a woman in a 
    komono with black hair. 
    
    ===========
    Jonin (Red)
    ===========
    
    These guys are red demons with swords. They act almost the
    exact same as the regular ninjas and are very aggressive. 
    They are very quick and attack often. They usually block a lot 
    They move around a lot and try to attack often. They can be very 
    tough to fight in groups. Just try to stealth kill these guys. Well, 
    you should try to stealth kill everyone in the game, but mainly 
    them since they are so tough to fight in one-on-one combat.
    
    ============
    Jonin (Blue)
    ============
    
    These guys are just like the red jonin, but they have claws 
    instead of swords. They are very aggressive. They are very quick 
    and attack often. They usually block a lot They move around a lot and 
    try to attack often. They can be very tough to fight in groups. Just 
    try to stealth kill these guys. Well, you should try to stealth kill 
    everyone in the game, but mainly them since they are so tough to 
    fight in one-on-one combat. When the blue jonin get low in health,
    they have two grenades in their pockets that they will light
    and run towards you. When they blow up, they instantly die and they
    will take away a whole lot of your health points.
    
    =================
    Samurai Automaton
    =================
    
    These guys are found only in the Amagai Castle. They are basically
    just like the samurais and ronins except for the fact that they are
    made of wood and are a lot harder than the humans. They can have
    either a spear or bow. Their attacks are pretty easy to block and dodge. 
    They usually attack very often. Even though these enemies are pretty easy 
    to beat one-on-one, they can be tough when fighting them in groups. These 
    guys usually sport around 50 or less hit points. They have a rather large 
    attack range because of their spears so try to get behind them or to their 
    side since these guys are very slow. You shouldn't have much problem with them.
    If they have a bow, just try to use combos on them since they have problems
    when trying to attack at close ranges.
    
    ======
    Chibot
    ======
    
    These guys are only found on the Amagai Castle too. They are very odd
    looking. They are these wooden robots but with the head of a ronin. 
    They are very powerful and have lots of powerful attacks. You can't
    get an animation out of them when you stealth kill them, but you
    can slash at them once to stealth kill them. Try to always stealth
    kill them because they are very hard when facing them one-on-one.
    They will also do the kamikaze thing that the blue jonin does
    when they are low on health. Even though they are very strong
    on the offensive, they have a very weak defense and very rarely
    block anything. 
    
    ===================
    Fire Demon (Undead)
    ===================
    
    These guys look like babies, but babies that are around 5 foot 
    tall. They are pretty easy to kill and they only have one strong
    attack. They basically blow fire and that is it. At close range,
    they have a clawing attack, but they aren't too powerful. These guys
    are very odd looking and kind of freaky. They are kind of 
    hard to tell which direction they are facing because of the fact
    that they always have their arms swinging everywhere and their head
    kind of tilted. Just try to stay close to them if you are going to 
    fight them one-on-one.
    
    =======================
    Undead Samurai (Undead)
    =======================
    
    These guys are just like the Samurai Automaton really. They are basically
    just like the samurais and ronins except for the fact that they are
    made undead and are a lot harder than the humans. They only have a 
    sword, unlike the automaton. Their attacks are pretty easy to block and dodge. 
    They usually attack very often. Even though these enemies are pretty easy 
    to beat one-on-one, they can be tough when fighting them in groups. These 
    guys usually sport around 80 or less hit points. You shouldn't have much problem 
    with them. 
    
    ===================
    Ghost Head (Undead)
    ===================
    
    These guys are just a floating ronin head surrounded by a glowing
    blue color. They hurt you by flying into you, throwing up on you, 
    or biting you. They are very easy to kill. Just swing your sword
    at them and they are gone. Their is no way that they can block so
    don't worry about that. 
    
    =========
    Shikigami
    =========
    
    These guys are just floating ghost or spirit things. They can
    only attack you by latching onto you and draining your health.
    Their real purpose is much like the dog, to alert the guards
    of your presence. They are absolutely easy to kill. You shouldn't
    have a problem with them. They are also extremely easy to kill in
    groups. 
    
    ========
    Werewolf
    ========
    
    These guys are just like the dogs, but they are a lot more aggressive.
    They are pretty challenging because they are so small and hard to hit.
    If you can manage to sneak up on one, jump and press attack. This is much 
    easier to hit them. These things can kind of make your presence known by

    with one. 
    
    =========
    Ninja Dog
    =========
    
    These guys are just like the dogs, but they are a lot more aggressive
    and they carry a dagger in their mouths. They are also white in color.
    They are pretty challenging because they are so small and hard to hit.
    If you can manage to sneak up on one, jump and press attack. This is much

    with one.
    
    ====
    Monk
    ====
    
    These guys are just like the ronins, only they have baskets on their head.
    This is probably one of the easiest enemies in the game. Their attacks are 
    pretty easy to block and dodge. They also don't attack very often. Even 
    though these enemies are so easy to beat one-on-one, they can be tough when 
    fighting them in groups. These guys usually sport around 50 or less hit 
    points. They have a rather large attack range because of their spears so 
    try to get behind them or to their side since these guys are very slow. 
    You shouldn't have much problem with them. There is also a monk or two
    that have blowguns. Just use close range combat on them because they
    are almost powerless when you get to close ranges. Their blowguns
    will also poison you and take away health every so often, but it will
    wear away after a while. 
    
    ===========
    Kenpo Bouzu
    ===========
    
    These are just like the normal monks, only they don't wear a basket
    on their head and they have no weapon. They are strictly using hand
    to hand combat. They are extremely hard. These guys are very strong
    on the offensive and have many quick and powerful punch and kick
    attacks. They block a lot too. They are easily one of the harder
    regular enemies in the game. 
    
    ====
    Bear
    ====
    
    The bear is very tough. It sports 300 hit points and will 
    easily kill you. I don't even think this thing can block. 
    Since it can't just corner it and do a lot of combos. 
    Do not get too far away from it because it has a lot of 
    attacks where it will jump at you and bite at you. This thing
    can either be very easy to kill or very hard to kill. 
    
    ===============
    Martial Artists
    ===============
    
    These guys are bald and wear white, blood-stained uniforms.
    They are very tough. They have close range attacks like 
    this spinning kick thing and other punch and kick moves. 
    Their long range attack is their ability to shoot these energy
    balls at you that are unblockable. They are pretty tough to fight
    one-on-one so try to stealth kill them whenever possible.
    
    ===
    Cop
    ===
    
    The cops are only present in the Through The Portal level, which
    is a bonus mission for Rikimaru that takes place in the future. 
    They are big, overweight cops that are carrying either nightsticks
    or pack a pistol. These guys block a lot and attack a lot. They are
    very powerful too. They are about the same as the ronins, except
    they are stronger and block more. The ones with guns will
    shoot you from long range and hit you at close range. They are
    pretty tough overall.

                             Rikimaru's Walkthrough
    #######################################################################
    
    The 26-year-old Rikimaru is the leader of the Azuma
    Shinobi-ryu sect and is an outstanding all around fighter.
    He's lethal with his sword, and he can move like the wind and
    he can conceal himself from his foes with expert stealth. Rikimaru
    is the "middle ground" of the three characters in this game. He's
    neither fast nor slow, weak nor powerful. He's right between Ayame
    and Tesshu in terms of strength, agility, and attacking power.

    Mission 1: Echigoya
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Caltrops, Tetsubishi
    
    Buds of evil flower in the darkness as the land of Lord Gohda experiences 
    a short springtime of peace. The fruits of corruption taste sweet to 
    Gohda's statesman Nasu when Echigoya's son Tokubei invites him to 
    the renovated Echigoya estate for dinner. Tokubei plants the seeds by 
    loaning money to innocent villagers and then, when payments aren't met, 
    abducting their daughters to sell as slaves. Nasu is asked to "overlook" 
    the process. You must punish the evil merchant!
    
    You start off on the ground outside of the compound. First, select your 
    Grappling Hook and grapple onto the wall in front of you. Once you get 
    on it, run to the right and then go straight. Keep running along the 
    wall until you come to the northeast corner of the level. Jump down onto 
    the concrete and pick up the white ball, which is a smoke bomb. Now, get 
    back onto the wall. Go straight towards the northwest corner of the 
    level. When you get there, there is going to be a guard on the ground 
    and a guard above you. Get all the way up against the wall and wait for 
    the guard on the ground to look away. Immediately jump down and stealth 
    kill him. Then, grapple up to the ledge where the other guard is 
    standing. When he is facing away from you, get up there and stealth kill 
    him. Now, go straight towards the southwestern part of the level. There 
    are going to be guards all around the courtyard so just silently take 
    them all out. After you have, look around the main building for a place 
    with a door. There will be a beehive by the door so that will help you 
    find it. Once you do, go up to it and go through it. Go through the 
    doors and you will eventually find a little hole in the wall. You can go 
    through it so hold R1 and go through. Here comes a loading screen. 
    
    You will end up inside a house. Peek out and look around the corners for 
    guards. Take out all of the guards in this courtyard. Then, go around 
    the courtyard looking for a roof/wall without barbed wire on it. Once 
    you do, grapple onto it. Go over the wall and get into the next 
    courtyard. Kill everyone there. Next, look around the courtyard for a 
    big door on the side of a building. Go through it for another load 
    screen.
    
    Now, you are inside the building. You need to take out everyone inside. 
    Go straight and do not kill the lady in the next room. Continue through 
    the rooms. You will come to a hallway with 2 doors in it, one on your 
    right and one straight ahead. Go to the one to the right. Keep going 
    through all of the rooms until you get to a boss fight. This is Tajima. 
    He is pretty easy. Just stick to using combos and blocking whenever you 
    think he will attack. If he is about to shoot at you, start jumping all 
    over the place because you can't block gunshots. 
    
    Now, Head through the next door and the door after that. You are now 
    heading to a new level of the building. Go through the next level much 
    like the first. When you get to the next boss fight, immediately take 
    out the 2 ronins. Keep using combos and keep as far away from Nasu as 
    possible. Once you kill them, go for Nasu. After beating him to death 
    for a while, he might try to give up or something. If he does, do not 
    approach him. Try to get close, but not close enough for him to attack. 
    Immediately start pummeling him and after a while, he will go down.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 2: Gohda Castle
    ========================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Super Shurikens, Ninja 
    Rebirth
    
    Echigoya's last words were as informative as they were deadly. There's 
    a traitor within the castle of Lord Gohda - a man wearing glasses named 
    Hamada. You must dispose of the traitor and return to Lord Gohda. But 
    be careful. Gohda's guards don't know of your existence and they will 
    greet you as an intruder. You must not kill any of Gohda's guards.
    
    This level is easier than it seems. All you have to do is not get 
    spotted. This may sound hard, but it isn't. If you do get spotted, do 
    not kill any of Gohda's or you will fail the mission. First, turn around 
    and go get the item. Keep going straight and you will come to a drop. 
    Drop down and you will be in a room and it might contain a guard. If it 
    does, just try not to step on him and always walk in stealth mode. Go 
    out of the room and get on the concrete-like floor. Peek around the 
    corner to the right and when the guard(s) there aren't looking, rush 
    through. If they see you, just keep running. Keep going straight and 
    keep along the right side. When you see a door, go through it. A cut-
    scene will commence showing you kill the traitor and showing that ninjas 
    are in the castle and are after Gohda.
    
    Time to kick some ass. First, pick up the key that was dropped by the 
    traitor. Turn backwards and head through the door. A load time will 
    commence. Turn right and go straight. Head left later on and then turn 
    another left into a big room with a tree in it. There will be a guard 
    there so just stealth kill him. Try to rush to the tree when he isn't 
    looking and just walk around it as he does. Next, turn towards the part 
    of the room where you entered. Walk toward it and turn left before you 
    get into the hallway. There will be a little hole here that you can 
    crawl through on the left so crouch down and go through. Keep going 
    through the tunnel until you reach a big room. Then, go up to the door 
    and press triangle when the key is highlighted.
    
    Go through the door. There is probably going to be a guard there so be 
    cautious. Stealth kill him and go straight. Move upstairs to the second 
    floor. Go through this level like you did the other part of the level. 
    Just peak around corners and stuff like that and you will eventually 
    come to more stairs. Go down them. Go through the next two rooms and go 
    back upstairs. Now, just go through the next set of rooms until you get 
    to the cut-scene, which will mean that is the end of the level. No boss 
    fight here.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 3: Limestone Caverns
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Blow Gun, Sticky Bomb
    
    The timing of the Ninja's surprise attack and retreat made it evident 
    that they intended to keep you from reaching Lord Gohda. The crystal 
    residue found on the Ninjas' clothing indicates that they came from 
    the Limestone Caverns. The rumor within the realm is that the 
    Shichishito, the sword of the deceased Lord Mei-oh, lies in the 
    heart of the limestone Caverns and is attracting evil powers to 
    it. You must go to the Caverns to find the Shichishito Sword.
    
    You will start this level off in a cave. Turn around at the beginning 
    and get the item. Turn back around and run. Jump diagonally to the right 
    and onto the guard tower where an enemy will be. Once you get up there, 
    immediately stealth kill him. There are two enemies on the ground below 
    you, one by the waterfall and one on the other side of the level. Shoot 
    the one by the waterfall with a blowgun or you could risk it and jump 
    down and try to stealth kill him. Either way, when moving through water, 
    always hold down R1. This is very important or the enemies will be 
    alerted of your presence. Now, kill the guy by the waterfall either way 
    and find a way to stealth kill the other guy. 
    
    Move deeper into the caverns now. Keep going straight until you pass up 
    all of the wood and stuff and you get to a big room. Do not go in. Press 
    your back against the wall and watch the 2 enemies talk. When they start 
    walking away from each other, go for the one on the wooden planks and 
    stealth kill him. Then, turn around and kill the other one. Move through 
    the cave opening now. Keep moving through until you see another enemy. 
    When he moves out of sight, run and kill him. Keep going straight until 
    you get to a sloped part of your path. There is a pitfall and an enemy 
    ahead of you. If you fall in a pit, you will instantly die. When you do, 
    hold down R1 so you can crouch and keep walking forward. Get up close to 
    the wall, but do not press your back against it. When you get confident 
    enough, jump over the pit and near the enemy. Press square before 
    landing for a sure stealth kill. Next, keep going straight. You will 
    come to an area with 3 enemies, one below you, one in a cave, and one 
    way up high on a ledge. I suggest killing the one below you with a 
    blowgun. Now, try to stay away from the one by the cave. Grapple up to 
    the ledge above and move across it until you see the feet of the enemy. 
    When they turn away, jump up and stealth kill them. 
    
    Turn to your right and there will be yet another enemy in front of you. 
    Wait for them to start walking away and they are out of sight. Run 
    towards the spot where they were and jump over the pit. They will most 
    likely be walking back toward you now so drop down into the pit. This 
    actually isn't a pit, but more of a hole because it has a bottom to it. 
    Hang onto it until the guy starts walking again and stealth kill him. 
    Jump back down into the hole and walk straight. You will eventually come 
    to a big wooden bridge. There is an enemy there on your left so press up 
    against the wall and wait for them to turn away. When they do, stealth 
    kill them. 
    
    Now, walk back towards the part where you first got on the bridge. You 
    have to actually walk off of the end of the bridge. This is a long drop, 
    but there is ground below and it is the way to go. Now, walk towards the 
    next cave and wait for the enemy there to turn around. When he does, 
    kill him. Keep going straight. You will come to a big room with a lot of 
    water and stuff everywhere eventually. When you do, creep through it and 
    go to the path on the left. Kill any enemy you see. Keep looking up for 
    a big walkway. When you see it, grapple up to it. Follow it to the boss 
    fight. This is Okinage. He is one of the most famous bosses from the 
    Tenchu games. He has one attack where he will rip at your chest, so stay 
    as far away from him as possible because this attack is very powerful. 
    Just keep using your combos on him. If you have unlocked it from the 
    first level, I suggest using the Shoulder Thrust combo on him. It does 
    wonders. He drinks a health potion whenever he is about to die so when 
    he is low on hit points, do not let him have the chance to drink one. 
    Just keep lobbing him with combos. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Health Potion, Blow Gun, Rice Balls
    
    The ninja who assassinated Nasu and saved Lord Gohda was not the real 
    Rikimaru but his shadow. The Azuma Ninjas have shadows that replace them 
    when one was thought to be dead. One year ago, Mei-oh fled into a portal 
    when he was fatally wounded. The true Rikimaru appeared out of the same 
    portal. Lord Gohda's daughter Kiku has been kidnapped. A letter was left 
    saying she has been taken to the Agamai Castle in a neighboring state. 
    You must go to the Agamai Castle and bring Kiku back. To get there, you 
    must first pass through Ronin Village.
    
    This mission is one of the funnest in the game. You will start off in 
    the level by a bridge that faces the ronin village. You need to crouch 
    immediately because there is an enemy near you to your right kind of. 
    You need to grapple up onto the roof of the house closest to you when 
    the guy is no longer looking. Throughout this level, you will see women 
    like in the first level and a funny-looking little man. Do not kill them 
    and try to stay away from them. You need to move from rooftop to rooftop 
    throughout the courtyard of this level and stealth kill people. Once you 
    kill everyone in the area, move towards the northwest side of the level 
    and you will see a little hole that you can crawl through. Crawl through 
    it and a cut-scene will commence.
    
    The next area is much like the first. There are several houses and a 
    small courtyard that is squared off from the other one. When you start 
    off, you are going to be in water. You need to crouch and walk through 
    the water. There is going to be a guard straight in front of you so you 
    need to wait until turns away and slowly get closer and closer and 
    stealth kill him. Now, move back to where you first entered the level 
    and turn to your left. Go straight and grapple up onto the wall. There 
    might be an enemy near so be cautious. Look straight in front of you and 
    there will be some enemies in the courtyard. You need to go straight 
    towards the big level of concrete where two guards are standing. One is 
    going to be walking up and down the left side and one will be walking 
    left and right on the side where you would have to climb up on. Once 
    they are both looking away, take out the one closest to you and run and 
    get the next one. There might be another guy in the courtyard so take 
    him out too. Once that has been done, look towards the direction where 
    the big wall is opposite of the direction where you jumped over the 
    wall. Now, look to your left and go towards that wall. Move out of the 
    enclosed courtyard and over the wall. Turn right and there will be some 
    enemies. Take them all out silently and then go straight and enter the 
    next area.
    
    Now, you will enter an area with a lot of large kegs. Stay on top of the 
    kegs and scope out all of your enemies. Once you have found all of their 
    locations, take out each enemy one by one. Once everyone has gone down, 
    move to the next gate. You will now be in a huge area with lots of 
    houses and things. Ahead of you is an enemy. Immediately take him out 
    whenever he is looking away. There are going to be lots of civilians in 
    this level so make sure not to kill them. Just move throughout the rest 
    of this area and kill everyone. Move to the northwest part of the level 
    and enter the gate by the big slope.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 5: Amagai Castle
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Smoke Bombs, Chameleon 
    Spell, Ninja Rebirth
    
    The Amagai Castle seems abandoned except for some strange wooden robots. 
    Use haste, but be careful Rikimaru. You must rescue Princess Kiku.
    
    This is the hardest level yet and probably one of the hardest in the 
    game. It can get very tricky at times. There are trap doors and lots of 
    pit falls. The enemies in the level aren't human. They are all made of 
    wood.  The Chibots are little wooden enemies with ronin heads. The 
    significance of these little enemies? I do not know. It kind of makes 
    the level stupid in a way. Oh well. On to the walkthrough.
    
    You will start off in a hallway. There is an enemy ahead of you. Look 
    along the wall on the left and quickly run to the part of the wall where 
    you could press your back up against it and be able to look at the enemy 
    at the same time. He will start walking towards you so just stay there 
    and be patient. When he turns around, go out and stealth kill him. Now, 
    go straight. Look above and to the right when you get to a dead end and 
    look for a ledge to grapple to. Grapple up to it and go forward a 
    little. There will be some lava below you, a floor ahead of you, and a 
    floor to the left of you. Use your grappling hook and hook onto the wall 
    where you will be able to land on the floor ahead of you. This will 
    decrease the risk of falling into the lava, which will cause you to lose 
    loads of life. Now, turn left and jump onto the next walkway. Keep going 
    straight and turn to your right. Grapple up to the ledge above. 
    
    You will come to a little drop and another ledge right in front of you. 
    Do not fall down right here. Sure there is a floor, but the floor is 
    booby-trapped with spears and it could cause you lots of damage. If you 
    do fall, just grapple back up as quickly as possible. If you don't just 
    look down again for the enemy below you. Once he moves away, go get him. 
    Keep moving through rooms and watching out for guards and trap doors. If 
    you happen to fall in a trap door, you have to immediately start jumping 
    or you could die. When you get to a room with a risen walkway to your 
    right, there are going to be many trap doors and a guard on the walkway. 
    Immediately jump onto the walkway and just hang there. Move side to side 
    until you see the guard and kill him when you get a chance. Keep going 
    through rooms now. After two or so, you will come to an area that has a 
    trap door and shoots spears from above where the doorway is. There is 
    also a Chibot. When the Chibot turns around, walk up to the spears and 
    when they shoot down, wait for them to rise again. When they do, go 
    through and run and kill the Chibot. Now, you need to use your grappling 
    hook to get up to a ledge above and over the pit. There is another enemy 
    here so be careful when getting up. Kill it too. At the top of the 
    stairs, there is another place to grapple to so grapple again. In the 
    new area, there is a revolving door that you have to put your back on. 
    If it does not turn, that is the wrong wall. Just keep trying the walls 
    in that room until you find it.
    
    When you enter the new room, just keep moving through the areas as usual 
    and kill anyone that you see. Eventually you will come to a drop off on 
    your left and an item on your right. Get the item and drop down. At the 
    bottom of the drop, put Rikimaru's back up against the wall and enter 
    the next area. That's two out of the three revolving doors done. Keep 
    moving through the next room and grapple up when you get to the dead 
    end. There are two directions to go now. To the left is a dead end and 
    to the right is a room with a risen walkway. Go right and stand at the 
    doorway of the room with the risen walkway. When you enter that room, 
    smoke bombs and grenades are going to fly out immediately after a door 
    falls and locks you in. You need to grapple up to the risen walkway 
    before this happens. When you get up it, just go into the next room. 
    
    Keep moving and grappling now throughout rooms. You will come to a large 
    area with a guard at the end of it. You need to take him out when you 
    get the chance. Move up the stairs and grapple to the ledge after you 
    have taken care of him. Hang there until the guard in front of you moves 
    away and then take care of him. Next, you will eventually come to a pit 
    with a lot of spears and stuff. Don't fall in. If you do, just grapple 
    back out. Grapple up to the area above the pit. Keep going through this 
    area and grappling up when getting the chance. Keep killing Chibots too. 
    
    When you come to an area with wooden rails and walkways everywhere, 
    follow the walkway that has the red rails. Keep going through this part 
    of the level until you come to a room with a guard. Take care of him. 
    Look down and you will see two large gears. If you fall into these, you 
    will instantly die. You need to grapple up to the ledge above you. Do 
    not fall in. The next room is very tricky. One false move and the 
    mission is done for you. There are two very large blades moving up and 
    down and a guard at the other side of the room. The blades are there to 
    either hit you or cut your grappling hook rope thing. You need to 
    grapple to the other side where the guard is without getting caught in 
    the big blades. Just time your grapple correctly and swing. When you 
    land, take care of the guard. 
    
    Now, run up the two flights of stairs and you will get to the boss 
    fight. Dr. Kimaira is the next boss. He is a little doctor guy with a 
    big thing on his shoulders. This is where the Sticky Bombs will come 
    into play. You need to land one of them on him. Start hitting him with 
    attacks and when he tries to do a little spinning kick move, detonate 
    the bombs. Repeat the process until he is gone. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Ressai explains that there are two ways to repair the Izayoi Sword. 
    One way is to use the steel that Ressai has on hand. The other is to 
    mix in the steel from another sword that's as strong as the Izayoi, 
    such as the Shichishito. However, mixing in the steel from the 
    Shichishito may have an unpredictable effect on the Izayoi's power 
    that one cannot predict. The heavens have given you a choice.
    
    This is a very hard level. You are going to always lose health in this 
    mission no matter what. Your sword, Murusama, constantly drains health 
    from you. You will be getting back health by killing enemies though. At 
    the beginning, you have two choices on how to repair the sword. Your 
    choice does not affect gameplay, but only affects two cut scenes towards 
    the end of the game so don't worry about it that much. Now, lets start 
    the mission.
    
    In your starting area, there are only two enemies and both are rather 
    easy to stealth kill. Just wait for the right moment and take them out. 
    The first one is facing you so just wait until he turns around. The next 
    one is an archer on top of a building. He will be easy to take out. Just 
    go kill him. Then, go into the passageway. Keep moving through the 
    passages and killing enemies. Just wait for an enemy to look away and 
    kill him. Eventually, you will come to the exit. When you exit, a door 
    will drop so you cannot retreat through it if the next fight gets too 
    heated, which it will.
    
    There are around 10 enemies here and they all know of your presence. I 
    suggest taking out the ones that look like screwed up babies first 
    because they can breathe fire and will make this a lot harder if they 
    are still alive. Just keep slashing and slashing until everyone is dead. 
    This will be a hard fight. If you are having a lot of trouble, just jump 
    onto the hut and wait for some to follow suit. Kill them up there. After 
    they are all gone, go straight and jump into that little well/hole 
    thing.
    
    You are back into the wooden passageways. Just go through them and kill 
    any enemies like you did in the first one. You will encounter some 
    floating head enemies and they can be taken out with a few hits, but 
    cannot be stealth killed. The next area has a lot of gnarled trees and 
    enemies. Kill all of the enemies and move on. Back into the wooden 
    passageways. Move through them like all of the last ones. Now, you are 
    finally to the cemetery. There are enemies here that you need to take 
    care of, but there is also an enemy that cannot be killed. You see, 
    there are big hands that come up from the ground and will try to hold 
    you down. If they get a hold of you, you cannot attack. Just try to 
    avoid them and if they start to come up, start jumping. When you get to 
    a fence, climb over it and into the passageway. 
    
    This is the last wooden passageway that you will come in contact with. 
    There are lots of dead ends, but none that will make you have to do any 
    major backtracking. Just consult your map when lost. You need to make 
    your way to a room that has lots of blood at the bottom (The Blood 
    Room). You need to hold R1 while passing through it or you will alert 
    enemies. Keep going through it and when you reach the dead end, look up 
    and grapple to the ledge above. Keep moving through the passageway and 
    out to the final outdoor area. You need to get to the gate to end the 
    level so use stealth and stealth kill everyone. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Ayame, another member of the Azuma clan, is imprisoned for attacking 
    Lord Gohda. She was arrested by Gohda's guards while she was running 
    into the Bamboo Forest. She explains that she is being framed and that 
    the imposter fled into the Bamboo Forest. The imprisoned ninja would 
    rather face the penalties of death rather than have a fellow ninja 
    break her out of prison. Go to the Bamboo Forest and find Ayame's 
    imposter, but use caution. The forest is infested with ninja demons 
    and Shikigami spirits.
    
    The Bamboo Forest is a pretty easy level to say the least. The level can 
    be completed without exploring most of it so I'm not going to give a 
    walkthrough on the parts of it that aren't crucial to pass through to 
    complete the level. This level has many spirits and devils throughout it 
    and little to no human enemies although Murusama will not be needed to 
    complete this mission. 
    
    You start the mission in a narrow canyon with snow everywhere. There are 
    a few jonins near the starting point and if one is alerted of your 
    presence, they will come to fight. You need to try to stealth kill each 
    and every one of them. If needed, use the blowgun to take them out. 
    After they are gone, continue down the canyon until you come to an area 
    that has multiple paths. Each path leads to the same place so it doesn't 
    really matter which way you go. Just keep an eye on your Ki meter and 
    you will be fine. Stealth kill anyone that you come into contact with. 
    You need to look around the area that the paths lead to for a little 
    hole that you can crawl into. To reach the next area, go through that 
    hole by holding R1 and moving toward it and make your way through it. 
    
    There is a hot spring at the end of this passage. If you are missing 
    health, get into the spring and it will revive you. You need to crouch 
    down in the deepest part to do this. After you are done, move to the 
    next small tunnel that you can access by holding R1 that is in the same 
    area as the one that you exited to get to the springs. You will come out 
    of the tunnel by a bridge. There are spirits and jonins above the bridge 
    so be careful. Dispose of the enemy under the bridge and go towards the 
    large opening. 
    
    There are two enemies in this little area. First, go get the item on the 
    left. Then, scope out the two enemies ahead of you. They are going to be 
    facing each other so they will be difficult to stealth kill. Go in the 
    opening on your left go around the little wall on your right. When the 
    two guards get done talking and start walking away from each other, 
    hurry and stealth kill the guy walking towards you when he is close 
    enough. Then, hurry and run and kill the other. After they are both 
    gone, turn left and go up the stairs. 
    
    You will come out in a snowy area. Go straight and towards the area with 
    the big snowman. Now, you can either go one of two ways, left or right. 
    Both paths lead to the same place, but the left path is easier so take 
    it. Continue through the path, stealth killing guards, and everything 
    else like you did before until you reach a lighted bridge. Go through 
    the gate ahead of it to reach the boss fight. You are about to fight 
    False Ayame, whom is a clone or something of Ayame. 
    
    This boss is extremely hard in my opinion and she has many great 
    attacks, both close and long range. You will start out with two jonins 
    and Ayame to fight. Keep doing Shoulder Thrusts to the jonins and try to 
    keep away from Ayame. Try to treat this fight as the boss fight in the 
    first level. After they are gone, time to kick Ayame's ass. Lock-on to 
    Ayame and when she comes to attack you, use the quick step maneuver to 
    the side to get out of the way of her strong attacks. When she is open, 
    use the Shoulder Thrust combo on her. Keep using this technique until 
    she is gone. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Blow Gun, Ninja 
    Rebirth
    
    Counsel Sekiya informs Lord Gohda that Tenrai's army has taken over 
    the Buddha Temple. Disguised as a temple on the border of Gohda's 
    realm, the building itself was designed as a fortress to guard the 
    land of Gohda from invading armies. Tenrai's plan was to keep Rikimaru 
    occupied in the Bamboo Forest, while keeping Ayame in prison so his 
    army could start his attack. Lord Gohda cannot send in his army to 
    take back the temple because it's holy ground. Doing so would also 
    be a sign of vulnerability to his neighboring states. You must 
    infiltrate the temple and execute the leaders of the enemy's army.
    
    This level can be tricky. There are guards all over the place and there 
    is even a bear to help them. You don't really need to kill every enemy 
    to move through this level, but just the necessary ones to let you go 
    deeper into the temple and your mission. On to the walkthrough.
    
    You start off near a cave, some planks of wood, and a guard with a 
    basket on his head. First, you need to run behind a wooden pole to the 
    right of the little area. Stay there and watch your enemy's pattern. 
    What he does when he is walking away from you is he walks, stops, turns, 
    and then keeps walking again. After he turns around in the middle of his 
    walk, wait for him to turn back around and go kill him. When he is dead, 
    turn around and look up. You will see three big wooden plank things 
    sticking out of the wall. Grapple up to the middle one and go through 
    the crawl space. 
    
    When you come out, you will be in a lower level with an enemy inside the 
    cave to your right and an enemy in front of you. You need to crouch down 
    to avoid being seen. When he turns away, go and kill him. Now, turn 
    around and go back onto the lower level. Now, turn to your left and run. 
    There is a little drop in front of you so you need to jump over it onto 
    the boards across from you. Turn around after getting onto it and use 
    the manual camera to look down at the level below. There is a guard 
    there so when he walks the other way, jump down and kill him. When done, 
    grapple back up. Press your back against the cave wall. Look to your 
    left for an enemy that walks up and down that little path. When he is 
    walking away, jump out and kill him. Now, keep going straight and go up 
    the stairs, but do not enter the next room. While on the stairs, press 
    against the wall on your right. You need to look for a guy to turn 
    around and walk the other way. When he does, kill him. Then, go to the 
    ledge that has a drop into the next room. There is a guy in front of you 
    and a guy to the right. You need to sneak around and kill the guy to the 
    right. It doesn't matter if he sees you or not. Just kill him either 
    way. Next, go take care of the other one when he turns around. 
    
    Now go straight. Jump onto the planks and eventually, onto the ground 
    below. Kill the bear with a stealth kill because this is probably harder 
    than most of the bosses in the game. This thing has 250 hit points and 
    is very hard to kill. If you don't stealth kill it, I suggest retreating 
    until they no longer think you are there. Stealth kill all of the guys 
    in that area. After that, go back to the part where the bear was and 
    look up. You need to grapple up onto the big bars above. Eventually, 
    make your way to the ledge above. There is a guy there with a blowgun 
    that you will have to kill. Press your back against the column and wait 
    for him to walk to the right. When he does, kill him. 
    
    Go towards the grayish cave and look up since it is a dead end. There 
    will be a ledge there to grapple to. Grapple up to it. You come to a 
    large area with a platform below and above you. Jump to the one below 
    and get the item. Now, grapple up to the other one and go along the 
    plank and kill the guard. Now, grapple up to the next walkway. There is 
    a pit in front of you. Hook the grappling hook to the roof above the 
    floor and immediately turn to the right and kill that guard. Then, turn 
    around and turn right. 
    
    Jump down into the next area. Keep on moving through the passages. When 
    you drop down to the wooden corridor, it looks like a dead end, but look 
    up. It's not. Grapple up to the area above. You will now come to a 
    boarded up area. Next, perch up on the wooden planks, walk off of it, 
    and move back so that you land on the area right below. Move down the 
    corridor to an area that has a hole that you can crawl in. Keep going 
    until you come to the next area that has a ledge above you. Grapple up 
    and keep moving. When you come outside, take out the nearby guard. There 
    is another bear ahead so try to avoid it. Now, you need to go back into 
    the temple. Look above the hole where you entered the area from for the 
    way. Once you're inside, move through the corridors and when you are in 
    the main room, drop down to start the boss fights.
    
    There are two bosses to fight now, but not at the same time. Your first 
    is Kagura. There is a giant that hits you instead of her. You cannot 
    kill the giant, so go for the girl. Just keep doing combos to her and 
    she will die eventually. Try to stay as far away from the giant as 
    possible. Next is Tatsumaru. Tatsumaru is probably the second strongest 
    boss, right after Tenrai. He has many powerful close range attacks so 
    try to stay as far away from him as possible. Just keep doing combos to 
    him until he is dead. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 9: Tenrai Fortress Part 1

    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potions, Sticky Bombs, Ninja 
    Rebirth, Blow Gun
    
    Two days have passed since the battle at the Buddha Temple. The moon 
    is full and the fog has lifted. Rikimaru, you must go to Tenrai's Fortress 
    and defeat Tenrai.
    
    This mission is very tough. There are lots of dangers in this level. The 
    enemies seem like they are tougher and there are loads of pitfalls. 
    There are Monks, undeads, and jonins throughout this level. If you don't 
    want to kill the undead, which would mean not bringing the Murusama 
    sword, you do not have to, but it would help you rack up on the stealth 
    kills. 
    
    In the first area, just scan it for jonins and stealth kill anyone you 
    see. Move on to the area with the big log. Move across the log halfway. 
    Scan the area below for all of the enemies and watch the ways they move. 
    Then, jump down to the roof of the house below. Whenever you think you 
    have the best chance, stealth kill one of the enemies and quickly take 
    care of the other one. If you need to, you can always jump back onto the 
    roof after killing one and wait for the other again. There is a health 
    potion on the far side of the building so get it. When everyone is gone, 
    go around the corner. You should always keep an eye on your Ki meter and 
    stealth kill all of the enemies that you come in contact with, but I'm 
    pretty sure you know that already. Keep going until you reach a very 
    large room. 
    
    This room has a lot of enemies in it and it will be pretty hard to make 
    your way around it and stealth kill them all, but it is for the best 
    considering that they are extremely hard to fight since they are so 
    strong and they will have other enemies to come and help them. The 
    room's exit is on the far right side. Just kill all of the enemies and 
    make your way to that part. Ok I will give you a strategy on the guard 
    near the exit. He is standing right by it and will almost never move. 
    What you need to do is, grapple up to the wall along the side of the 
    cave that is to the enemy's left. Then, press your back against the wall 
    and slowly creep towards him. When he looks to his right a little, go 
    out and stay close to the wall. Run and kill him with a stealth kill.
    
    Now, go through the opening and climb the stairs. These next few rooms 
    contain large guns that overlook the fortress's outside compound and the 
    areas have lots of enemies. Keep going through the gun rooms and stealth 
    killing all of the enemies. In the next gun room, you need to look for 
    an area above you that you can grapple to. When you see it, grapple up. 
    There will be a monk in front of you so wait until he turns. When he 
    does, take him out. Then move to the left side of the platform. Find the 
    small wooden bridge on the left side and go on it. Continue through the 
    corridors and stealth kill any enemies that get in your way. Continue 
    through the rooms until you reach a room with a female guard in the 
    bottom of it. Use a blowgun to take her out, and then move up the step-
    like stones. There is a jonin at the top of one of the steps so you need 
    to kill him when you get the chance. 
    
    After you do, search the area for the top of a guard tower. Jump onto it 
    or leap to the area below it. Continue in the only direction possible 
    until the boss chamber. You are about to face Okinage, yet again. This 
    is where the sticky bombs come into play. I suggest throwing two onto 
    him at the beginning of the fight. When you get him down to 50 hit 
    points, detonate both of the sticky bombs simultaneously. This will 
    instantly kill him. Before that, just stay as far away from him as 
    possible and do the Shoulder Thrust combo whenever you feel that you 
    have a good chance. Okinage has a lot of powerful close range attacks so 
    just keep away. After that, detonate the sticky bombs like I said before 
    because if you don't, Okinage will drink a Health Potion whenever he 
    feels that he is low on health and you will have to do it all over 
    again.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 10: Tenrai Fortress Part 2
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potions, Exploding Arrows, 
    Sticky Bombs, Ninja Rebirth, Murusama Sword
    
    This is the last mission in the game. You are still in Tenrai's Fortress 
    and have just killed Okinage. Time to go for the big dog, Tenrai. He is 
    an old guy with some badass attacks. This level is crawling with enemies 
    and undeads so you will need to bring the Murusama sword with you. 
    
    When you start out, immediately grapple up to the ledge above you. As 
    you did in the last mission, you need to move through all of the 
    hallways and kill any enemies that you come in contact with. Keep an eye 
    on your Ki meter as it will help you a lot in this fight. Keep going to 
    an area where there are multiple pathways. All of the paths lead to the 
    same place, but they are slightly different. Just pick one and move 
    through it, killing anyone you see. After patrolling the maze, you come 
    to the exit of this level. Jump to the raised doorway. There are lots of 
    female ninja guards so keep a look out for them. 
    
    Keep going until you come to a room with several large pillars in it. 
    Use the grappling hook to reach the first pillar. Then, look around for 
    an opening in the wall that has an item in it. Jump into it get it. 
    Then, jump back onto the first pillar. Grapple up to the other ones and 
    then grapple to the ledge that will let you keep progressing in the 
    level. The next room contains pillars that you have to jump onto. One 
    false step and you will fall to your death. Jump from pillar to pillar 
    and eventually, to the ledge by the wall in front of you. If you want, 
    you could always use the grappling hook instead of making the last jump 
    because it is more of a sure thing. Now, walk down the walkway until you 
    see a jonin. When you do, time yourself right and eventually kill him. 
    
    Move around the room and go up the steps, step by step. The next room is 
    a grid that contains a lot of enemies. You should use your Ki meter a 
    lot here. When you get to the staircase, look up and grapple up. Now, 
    grapple up again to the ledge above. Go up the staircase and eventually, 
    you will see an enemy and a gap in the staircase. Try to take him out 
    with a blowgun or a stick bomb or something because you don't want to 
    have to fight him on such a narrow strip. If you have to fight him, 
    proceed with caution. After he is dead, climb up onto the walkway above. 
    Look to your left and grapple to that side. Kill the guard right by you. 
    Then, go along the walkway and look down. You should see a big drop with 
    an area you can drop to with an item. Drop down and get it. Next, look 
    up the wall to your left. Grapple up to the ledge above. Just keep 
    grappling and jumping around until you get to Tenrai. You should have no 
    further problems until you get to him.
    
    Now you are up to the final boss of the game, Tenrai. He has three 
    phases. Each phase is stronger than the last. First up is his weakest 
    phase that has 150 hit points. I suggest using the Exploding Arrows or 
    Sticky Bombs on him, but don't use too many. Save some for later phases. 
    In the first phase, he will have several long range and short range 
    attacks. Just keep him locked-on and move around a lot. Use combos to 
    him whenever you feel you have a good chance. After he is dead, here 
    comes the second phase. The second phase is a lot harder and has 200 hit 
    points. Your hits at first will seem as if they are not doing any 
    damage, but after a while, there will be a cut-scene and then they will 
    start to. He seems to block a lot now, but just keep trying to do combos 
    and eventually you will kill him. Use the same techniques as the first 
    phase. Here comes the third phase along with it's 200 hit points. The 
    third phase is probably the easiest. Just keep using the same techniques 
    as the first and second phase and you will win eventually. 
    
    Mission complete.

                                Ayame's Walkthrough
    #######################################################################
    
    At 22, Ayame is a bold, quick, silent, and cunning ninja. She
    has been trained since childhood. As sharp with her tongue
    as she is with her sword, Ayame uses an acrobatical style
    of ninjitsu to overcome obstacles living or dead. She adores
    Gohda's daughter Kiku like her own baby sister.
    
    Ayame is a quicker fighter than Rikimaru. Not only can she
    move and jump better than her male counterpart, but she
    can hit the enemy with faster combinations as well. The
    trade-off is that her attacks cause less damage, so 
    she must hit the enemy more to get the same 
    results.

    Mission 1: Bamboo Forest
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Caltrops, Sticky Bombs
    
    A villager bursts into tears in front of town officials. He explains 
    that his daughter was abducted as payment for a loan he couldn't repay. 
    Other village girls have been disappearing in the night as well. 
    Witnesses come forth with news that the village girls were taken to 
    the temple in the Bamboo Forest. Because of the Temple, the Bamboo 
    Forest is considered holy ground and cannot be disturbed by the 
    government and the police. Lord Gohda has no choice but to send you 
    into the Bamboo Forest for silent justice.
    
    This is your first mission in the game with Ayame and it is rather easy. 
    Most of the guards in the level can be stealth killed with ease and the 
    end boss isn't too hard. The only real problem is that the map can be 
    kind of complicated although it is nothing compared to some of the later 
    levels like Amagai Castle. This is a rather fun mission in my opinion. 
    Well, on with the walkthrough.
    
    You start off on a sloped walkway that leads to a bridge. On the ground 
    below, you see a lot of snow and a guard whom needs to be killed. Watch 
    the guard for a while and when he turns his back to you to start walking 
    in the other direction, run down the walkway and go behind him to 
    stealth kill him. I need you to go do something now. Go to the side of 
    the bridge where the walkway is and look for a glowing hole. See it? 
    Well, it is possible to climb in it. That is the hole that leads to the 
    hot springs. You must remember this for a moment. Now turn around and 
    walk forward until you get to a huge cave. That is just the cave area. I 
    need you to remember these two places. 
    
    Now, you have an option of what you want to do here. If you want to rack 
    up a lot of stealth kills and make it easier to fill your Kanji so you 
    can get a new ability, you can go back up to the bridge and follow it 
    all the way until you get to an area that has a passage to the hot 
    springs. When you do, take that passage. You will end up at the 
    beginning of the level. Keep in mind that this is not a necessary thing 
    to do to get the new ability and it is entirely possible to get it 
    without going that way. If you choose to do this, always watch your Ki 
    meter and just use stealth as best as you can. 
    
    Your second option is to follow the rest of the walkthrough. Ok I will 
    start the rest now so follow it if you aren't going to go now or follow 
    it when you get back to the beginning of the level if you choose to go 
    across the bridge. Alright, enter the mouth of the cave slightly, but 
    not much. There are two enemies in this little area. First, go get the 
    item on the left. Then, scope out the two enemies ahead of you. They are 
    going to be facing each other so they will be difficult to stealth kill. 
    Go in the opening on your left go around the little wall on your right. 
    When the two guards get done talking and start walking away from each 
    other, hurry and stealth kill the guy walking towards you when he is 
    close enough. Then, hurry and run and kill the other. After they are 
    both gone, turn left and go up the stairs. Crouch when getting out into 
    the outside again in case there are any enemies around you. 
    
    You will come out in a snowy area. Go straight and towards the area with 
    the big snowman. Now, you can either go one of two ways, left or right. 
    Both paths lead to the same place, but the left path is easier so take 
    it. Continue through the path, stealth killing guards, and everything 
    else like you did before until you reach a lighted bridge. Go through 
    the gate ahead of it to reach the boss fight. You are about to fight 
    Tajima.
    
    Tajima is rather easy. He has a gun and a sword and doesn't attack too 
    often although he does move around and block a good bit. Just stick to 
    using combos and blocking whenever you think he will attack. If he is 
    about to shoot at you, start jumping all over the place because you 
    can't block gunshots. After he is gone, you have beaten the first 
    mission for Ayame.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 2: Echigoya
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Caltrops, Sticky Bombs
    
    The mention of Echigoya's name by Tajima in the Bamboo Forest was proof 
    that Tokubei had inherited the family business after his father was killed. 
    You must infiltrate the Echigoya estate and punish the evil merchant.
    
    You start off on the ground outside of the compound. First, select your 
    Grappling Hook and grapple onto the wall in front of you. Once you get 
    on it, run to the right and then go straight. Keep running along the 
    wall until you come to the northeast corner of the level. Jump down onto 
    the concrete and pick up the white ball, which is a smoke bomb. Now, get 
    back onto the wall. Go straight towards the northwest corner of the 
    level. 
    
    When you get there, there is going to be a guard on the ground and a 
    guard above you. Get all the way up against the wall and wait for the 
    guard on the ground to look away. Immediately jump down and stealth kill 
    him. Then, grapple up to the ledge where the other guard is standing. 
    When he is facing away from you, get up there and stealth kill him. Now, 
    go straight towards the southwestern part of the level. 
    
    There are going to be guards all around the courtyard so just silently 
    take them all out. After you have, look around the main building for a 
    place with a door. There will be a beehive by the door so that will help 
    you find it. Once you do, go up to it and go through it. Go through the 
    doors and you will eventually find a little hole in the wall. You can go 
    through it so hold R1 and go through. Here comes a loading screen. 
    
    You will end up inside a house. Peek out and look around the corners for 
    guards. Take out all of the guards in this courtyard. Then, go around 
    the courtyard looking for a roof/wall without barbed wire on it. Once 
    you do, grapple onto it. Go over the wall and get into the next 
    courtyard. Kill everyone there. Next, look around the courtyard for a 
    big door on the side of a building. Go through it for another load 
    screen.
    
    Now, you are inside the building. You need to take out everyone inside. 
    Go straight and do not kill the lady in the next room. Continue through 
    the rooms. You will come to a hallway with 2 doors in it, one on your 
    right and one straight ahead. Go to the one to the right. Head through 
    this room. Now, Head through the next door and the door after that. You 
    are now heading to a new level of the building. Go through the next 
    level much like the first. 
    
    When you get to the next boss fight, immediately take out the 2 ronins. 
    Keep using combos and keep as far away from Nasu as possible. Once you 
    kill them, go for Nasu. After beating him to death for a while, he might 
    try to give up or something. If he does, do not approach him. Try to get 
    close, but not close enough for him to attack. Immediately start 
    pummeling him and after a while, he will go down. After you kill him, 
    run down to the first floor of the building to end the mission. Just go 
    down those stairs from earlier.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 3: Gohda Castle
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Blow Gun, Poison Rice
    
    Lord Gohda nods quietly as you report to him about the three jewels that 
    Echigoya spoke of. However, he makes no mention of it and asks you to 
    forget the conversation. A few months later, a treacherous incident occurs. 
    Hamada, on of Lord Gohda's men, takes Gohda hostage and demands that the 
    Jewel of Virtue be brought to him. Timed with Hamada's acts of treason,
    a mysterious band of Ninjas attacks the castle and takes over every floor. 
    You must hurry to rescue Lord Gohda and dispose of the traitor.
    
    This level is easier than it seems. There are loads of guys on this 
    level and you should have no trouble to get the new ability. You start 
    off in a room with a concrete-like floor. When the level begins, 
    immediately hold down R1 and look for enemies. From the position you 
    were facing when the level started, there was a way to go in front of 
    you and to the right of you. Go to the right. Peek around the corner to 
    the right and when the guard(s) there aren't looking, rush to them and 
    stealth kill them. If they see you, fight them. Keep going straight and 
    take the left turn. Keep going straight and keep along the right side. 
    When you see a door, go through it. Go through the secret door in the 
    room. It really isn't secret, but it doesn't look like a door. 
    
    Next, turn left and go straight. Go through the door and kill the enemy 
    in there. Then, go up the staircase. Go through the door. There is 
    probably going to be a guard there so be cautious. Stealth kill him and 
    go straight. Move upstairs to the second floor. Go through this level 
    like you did the other part of the level. Just peak around corners and 
    stuff like that and you will eventually come to more stairs. Go down 
    them. Go through the next two rooms and go back upstairs. Now, just go 
    through the next set of rooms until you get to the cut-scene, which will 
    make the boss fight begin. 
    
    This is Hamada. He is overall pretty easy, but he is definitely harder 
    than any enemy that you have faced so far with Ayame. He blocks a lot 
    and attacks even more. Just keep him locked on and dodging his attacks 
    with the R2 + X + L3 move and using combos on him. You will do fine. 
    After he is dead, you are done.
    
    Mission complete.

    Potion
    
    The mysterious voice that emanated from Hamada's corpse called himself 
    Tenrai. Gohda is shocked that Tenrai knew of the three secret jewels. 
    Long ago, the jewels of Heaven, Earth and Virtue gave the Gohda family 
    the power to control the realm. Two of these jewels were stolen by thieves. 
    The third one, still in Gohda's possession, is the Jewel of Virtue. With 
    the Jewel of Earth in Tenrai's possession, Gohda must find the Jewel of 
    Heaven before Tenrai gets his hands on it. But before that, Gohda must prepare 
    for other attacks by Tenrai.By controlling Hamada's dead body, Tenrai 
    has proven himself to be a master of spiritual powers. Lord Gohda 
    knows that he needs weapons of equal spiritual strength to fight back 
    if Tenrai ever attacks again. Gohda's family diaries speak of Yoto Swords, 
    which were so spiritually powerful that his ancestors had to seal them 
    in a shrine in the Cemetery to keep them from taking the lives of their 
    owners. To get to this shrine, now an old house, one had to break five 
    sealing stones within the Cemetery. You must go to the shrine in the 
    Cemetery to retrieve the Yoto Swords, but be careful. The spirits blocking 
    your path cannot be hurt by normal swords.
    
    This level is going to be pretty hard. There are undead enemies and 
    ninja enemies in this level. The thing is, you don't have the right 
    sword to kill the undead so you must not let them know you are there 
    since you can't take them on. The ninjas, however, can be killed and you 
    will have to kill them. Keep an eye on the Ki meter at all times.
    
    I just want to start off by telling you that if an undead spots you, he 
    will attack you and call over a ninja to help him. When you start the 
    mission, you have an undead enemy near you. Use stealth and roll from 
    tree to tree as you make your way down the path. You need to destroy a 
    Sealing Stone so that you can open up the passageway so look for it and 
    destroy it and make your way into the first passageway. Time to kill 
    some ninjas.
    
    Once you get inside, keep going through it and doing the normal routine, 
    just stealth killing the ninjas and watching the Ki meter. When you get 
    to the Blood Room, wait for a second and read the next part. This next 
    part is tricky. There is an undead in the bottom of the Blood Room 
    somewhere. What you need to do is drop down while holding R1 and move 
    through it while holding R1. If the undead spots you, you can let go off 
    R1 and run. R1 makes the enemy not here you in liquids by the way. 
    Anyways, you need to grapple up to a ledge above on the other side of 
    the Blood Room on the opposite end of where you started.
    
    Now just keep going through the passageway and come out of it. Go into 
    the next area and jump over the large fence. There is a Sealing Stone in 
    the next part of the area. You need to destroy it. Do not move on until 
    you do. After you do, go into the next passageway on the far side of the 
    area. Watch your Ki meter when searching for the Sealing Stone, as there 
    are ninjas in the area. Anyways, when you get in the next passageway, 
    just keep moving and doing business as usual. You will run into some 
    floating head enemies, but you cannot kill them so don't try. Just keep 
    moving until you get back outside.
    
    The next area has three enemies in it and they are all ninjas. You can 
    easily kill them all with stealth kills. Before exiting this area, make 
    sure you destroy the Sealing Stone. Then, go into the next passageway. 
    Keep going until you get to a huge gap. Grapple to the other side and 
    wait there. Turn and look for an undead and a ninja. Wait for the undead 
    to go on it's patrol and get out of sight. When it does, grapple back 
    across and go kill the ninja and keep moving. When you get to a dead 
    end, look up for a hole in the roof. Grapple out of the hole and into 
    the next area. 
    
    Run to the sealing stone in the middle of the area and destroy it. After 
    that, run to the hut. Here is another boss fight. This headless giant's 
    name is, well, Headless Giant. He is huge and is carrying his own hand 
    in his hand. This guy is much easier than he looks. He is rather easy 
    considering he almost never blocks. Just keep doing combos to him and 
    dodging his attacks and you will be fine. Even though he has 200 hit 
    points, he will go down in a hurry. After you have beaten the Headless 
    Giant, you have beaten the Cemetery.

    Mission 5: Ronin Village
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Blow Gun, Poison Rice
    
    Two months pass after you retrieve the Yoto Swords. Lord Gohda has sent 
    all of his men to find the Jewel of Heaven before it falls into the hands 
    of Tenrai, but to no avail. An old sage named Zennosuke, who lives in a red 
    house in the Ronin Village, is rumored to know the whereabouts of the Jewel 
    of Heaven. Tenrai's men also know of this rumor and are already at the ronin 
    village. You must get to Zennosuke before they do.
    
    This mission is one of the funnest in the game. Take note that enemies 
    will always follow you onto rooftops on this level so you need to 
    grapple to places that are too high for them to jump to. You will start 
    off in the level by a bridge that faces the ronin village. You need to 
    crouch immediately because there is an enemy near you to your right kind 
    of and an enemy in front of you on the rooftop of this house. You need 
    to grapple up onto the roof of the house closest to you when the guy is 
    no longer looking and the girl on top of it has turned around. There are 
    lots of enemies in the first part of the level so be cautious. 
    Throughout this level, you will see women like in the first level and a 
    funny-looking little man. Do not kill them and try to stay away from 
    them. You need to move from rooftop to rooftop throughout the courtyard 
    of this level and stealth kill people. Once you kill everyone in the 
    area, move towards the northwest side of the level and you will see a 
    little hole that you can crawl through. Crawl through it and a cut-scene 
    will commence.
    
    The next area is much like the first. There are several houses and a 
    small courtyard that is squared off from the other one. When you start 
    off, you are going to be in water. You need to crouch and walk through 
    the water. There is going to be a guard straight in front of you so you 
    need to wait until turns away and slowly get closer and closer and 
    stealth kill him. Now, move back to where you first entered the level 
    and turn to your left. Go straight and grapple up onto the wall. There 
    might be an enemy near so be cautious. Look straight in front of you and 
    there will be some enemies in the courtyard. You need to go straight 
    towards the big level of concrete where two guards are standing. One is 
    going to be walking up and down the left side and one will be walking 
    left and right on the side where you would have to climb up on. Once 
    they are both looking away, take out the one closest to you and run and 
    get the next one. There might be another guy in the courtyard so take 
    him out too. Once that has been done, look towards the direction where 
    the big wall is opposite of the direction where you jumped over the 
    wall. Now, look to your left and go towards that wall. Move out of the 
    enclosed courtyard and over the wall. Turn right and there will be some 
    enemies. Take them all out silently and then go straight and enter the 
    next area.
    
    Now, you will enter an area with a lot of large kegs. Stay on top of the 
    kegs and scope out all of your enemies. Once you have found all of their 
    locations, take out each enemy one by one. Once everyone has gone down, 
    move to the next gate. You will now be in a huge area with lots of 
    houses and things. Ahead of you is an enemy. Immediately take him out 
    whenever he is looking away. There are going to be lots of civilians in 
    this level so make sure not to kill them. Just move throughout the rest 
    of this area and kill everyone. Move to the northern part of the level 
    and enter the red house. 
    
    There are two boss fights in this level and here comes your first, 
    Tesshu, who happens to be the secret character in the game that you can 
    unlock. Tesshu has no weapons except for his fists. Now I know you're 
    thinking that this guy should pose no threat, but you are very wrong. 
    Tesshu is extremely strong and unfortunately for him, he is extremely 
    slow too. He blocks a lot and seems to attack at every chance he will 
    get. Just keep blocking and pummeling him with combos and you should do 
    fine. 
    
    Right after you beat Tesshu, you will have to face False Rikimaru. He is 
    a lot easier than Tesshu was in my opinion. Rikimaru is always on the 
    offensive and seems to never try to block anything. Just keep blocking 
    his attacks and doing combos to him. He will be dead before you know it 
    and the mission will be over.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 6: Amagai Castle
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Sticky Bombs, Poison 
    Rice
    
    You've been caught by Kimaira, and you wake up in a cage. As you prepare 
    for your escape the guard in front of you suddenly shrieks in pain. Tesshu 
    has followed Kimaira there. After seeing that you can escape by yourself, 
    Tesshu tells you that Zennosuke mentioned a secret jewel hidden in the eye 
    of the statue in the Buddha Temple. Then Tesshu disappears.
    
    The mission starts off with a boss fight. You are going to have to fight 
    Kimaira. When you kill him, you will have 20 minutes to get down to the 
    bottom of the castle. This is extremely easy to do if you have already 
    played the game with Rikimaru. Oh well. On to the walkthrough.
    
    This is Dr. Kimaira and his little voodoo statue thing. This guy is kind 
    of hard because of his moves that you cannot block by pressing Circle 
    like that spinning kick move he does. At the beginning of the fight, 
    throw a sticky bomb on him, but don't detonate it. Start fighting him 
    and when he goes for the move where he does the spinning kick and is 
    coming towards you, detonate it. Keep doing combos to him and trying to 
    dodge his attacks until the fight is over. Use the sticky bomb technique 
    more than once if you think that it would better your odds of winning.
    
    Now after you beat him, you are at the top of the castle and have to run 
    to the bottom in under twenty minutes. If you don't mission failed. The 
    time limit might as well not even be there. On my first time through the 
    level, I think I got out in around eight minutes. First, go through the 
    door in front of you. When you get to the big blades that move up and 
    down, wait for a second. Those blades will cut your grappling hook wire 
    if they pass over it so you are going to have to be extra careful. Make 
    sure there are no guards near you or on the other side that could make 
    you mess up and take precious aiming for the ceiling below. Wait for the 
    blades to line up good enough to where you have the best chance of 
    landing the grapple and making it across. Take your time for you have a 
    lot of it. 
    
    Keep going straight and when you come to the jump that has the gear pit 
    under the ledge that is very near your location, stop for a second. You 
    need to position yourself to where you can jump at an angle that would 
    be kind of to the northeast but diagonally and double jump. Try to guide 
    your fall to the floor. If you think you can make it, you could try to 
    double jump straight and just guide your fall from there. Just be very 
    careful because you will die if you get caught in the gears. 
    
    Keep going to the next set of gears. These are a lot easier to jump over 
    so just double jump straight, but before you do, scope out the enemy on 
    the ground below. Try to make it to where you can stealth kill him in 
    the air or if you want, just fight him. Throughout the second floor, 
    just keep going straight through all of the rooms and going down when 
    necessary. 
    
    When you come to a dead end, you are most likely near the first 
    revolving door. It is in this dimly lit cell area. Just press R1 near 
    all of the walls to find the right one, and if a cut-scene commences 
    showing Ayame having the wall turn, that is the right one. You could 
    also look at the bottom of the walls for a little gear looking thing 
    that you would think would be used for it to turn on. After you get this 
    revolving door down, move down the hallway. There is going to be an 
    enemy in it by the way. When you get to the end of the hallway, look up 
    and grapple up. 
    
    There is another revolving door somewhere near you. Just go through a 
    few rooms and when you come to a dead end, put your back against all of 
    the walls until one works. You will find it. Go through a series of 
    rooms that are guarded and you will eventually come to a dead end, which 
    is really the last revolving door. Just look for it and press your back 
    against walls like the other doors. Keep going straight and you will 
    eventually come to the end of the level. Now you have a decision. Do you 
    want to fight Okinage or not? The only thing that this choice affects is 
    a cut-scene later in the game. 
    
    If you do fight him, here is a little walkthrough on how to easily kick 
    his ass. He is one of the most famous bosses from the Tenchu games. He 
    has one attack where he will rip at your chest, so stay as far away from 
    him as possible because this attack is very powerful. Just keep using 
    your combos on him. If you have unlocked it from the first level, I 
    suggest using the Shoulder Thrust combo on him. It does wonders. He 
    drinks a health potion whenever he is about to die so when he is low on 
    hit points, do not let him have the chance to drink one. Just keep 
    lobbing him with combos. After you kill him, mission complete. If you 
    chose not to fight him, you ended the mission right then and there so 
    mission complete for you too.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 7: Great Buddha Temple
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Smoke Bombs, Super Shuriken, Poison 
    Rice, Health Potion
    
    According to Tesshu, the Jewel of Heaven is hidden in the eye of the 
    statue inside the Buddha Temple. Ganda, one of Tenrai's lords of Darkness, 
    is already at the Buddha Temple with his men. Go to the Buddha Temple, 
    execute Ganda, and retrieve the Jewel of Heaven.
    
    This mission is a really fun one. It is kind of a stealth kill fest. 
    Like other of Ayame's missions, this mission too begins with a boss 
    fight. This dude is pretty huge too. On to the walkthrough.
    
    You start off and have to fight the Lord of Darkness. This guy is a 
    giant and is very strong. He blocks almost everything and has very 
    powerful attacks. I suggest throwing smoke bombs in front of him at 
    times to confuse him and then attacking. I don't think you can block 
    this guy's attacks so you might as well not even try. This guy is really 
    slow and Ayame is really fast so you have one thing up on him. When you 
    think he is going to attack, just get away from him. Keep using combos 
    on him and using items on him such as the super shuriken and smoke bombs 
    and you will be fine. 
    
    After the Lord of Darkness is dead, you start off inside a cave. There 
    are two enemies near you. One is in the entrance to the cave and one is 
    on a little bridge. First, go and watch the guy at the entrance of the 
    cave. When you think you have a good chance of killing him, go for it. 
    Now, go take cover behind something so that the other guy will not see 
    you when he comes and inspects the dead body because he will. After he 
    stays in purple mode for a while and then goes back to not caring, go 
    and stealth kill him when you get the chance. Then, run to the little 
    wooden bridge with the poles sticking out of the wall. You will see 
    three big wooden plank things sticking out of the wall. Grapple up to 
    the middle one and go through the crawl space. 
    
    When you come out, you will be in a lower level with an enemy inside the 
    cave to your right and an enemy in front of you. You need to crouch down 
    to avoid being seen. When he turns away, go and kill him. Now, turn 
    around and go back onto the lower level. Now, turn to your left and run. 
    There is a little drop in front of you so you need to jump over it onto 
    the boards across from you. Turn around after getting onto it and use 
    the manual camera to look down at the level below. There is a guard 
    there so when he walks the other way, jump down and kill him. When done, 
    grapple back up. Press your back against the cave wall. Look to your 
    left for an enemy that walks up and down that little path. When he is 
    walking away, jump out and kill him. Now, keep going straight and go up 
    the stairs, but do not enter the next room. While on the stairs, press 
    against the wall on your right. You need to look for a guy to turn 
    around and walk the other way. When he does, kill him. Then, go to the 
    ledge that has a drop into the next room. There is a guy in front of you 
    and a guy to the right. You need to sneak around and kill the guy to the 
    right. It doesn't matter if he sees you or not. Just kill him either 
    way. Next, go take care of the other one when he turns around. 
    
    Now go straight. Jump onto the planks and eventually, onto the ground 
    below. Kill the bear with a stealth kill because this is probably harder 
    than most of the bosses in the game. This thing has 250 hit points and 
    is very hard to kill. If you don't stealth kill it, I suggest retreating 
    until they no longer think you are there. Stealth kill all of the guys 
    in that area. After that, go back to the part where the bear was and 
    look up. You need to grapple up onto the big bars above. Eventually, 
    make your way to the ledge above. There is a guy there with a blowgun 
    that you will have to kill. Press your back against the column and wait 
    for him to walk to the right. When he does, kill him. 
    
    Go towards the grayish cave and look up since it is a dead end. There 
    will be a ledge there to grapple to. Grapple up to it. You come to a 
    large area with a platform below and above you. Jump to the one below 
    and get the item. Now, grapple up to the other one and go along the 
    plank and kill the guard. Now, grapple up to the next walkway. There is 
    a pit in front of you. Hook the grappling hook to the roof above the 
    floor and immediately turn to the right and kill that guard. Then, turn 
    around and turn right. 
    
    Jump over the pit and then fall in the next hole. This is the way to go. 
    In the next room, there is going to be a huge pit. When you get in, jump 
    to the side of the room. Then, jump on the plank that is right by the 
    side. Then, jump to the side of the room again. You are going to come to 
    a similar looking room. Use the grappling hook to get from side to side. 
    When you get all the way to the end of the pit and on the side, it looks 
    like a dead end, but there is a column that you can grapple up to above 
    you. It may take a few tries, but you will eventually get it. 
    
    Once you are on it, look up and keep grappling up a lot. You have 
    arrived at the top when you see wooden walls with red trim. Once you're 
    inside, keep going straight and watching your Ki meter. When you get to 
    the main room, use your grappling hook to climb up to the right side of 
    the statue. Once you do this, you have completed the mission and a cut-
    scene will commence.  
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 8: Limestone Caverns
    ======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Blow Gun, Poison Rice
    
    With two of the three jewels in the possession of Tenrai, Lord Gohda 
    decides that his only chance of winning is to conduct a surprise attack. 
    Gohda's men are sent across the land to find out where Tenrai is hiding. 
    After a few days, the men gather information that Tenrai has set up a 
    fortress on a nearby island. Any boats would be spotted easily, but a 
    surprise attack could be conducted through a tunnel within 
    the Limestone Cavern that connects the island to the mainland. During the 
    process of gaining this information, Gohda loses half of his army, and 
    Sekiya, his advising counsel, is taken hostage by the enemy within the 
    Limestone Cavern. You must go to the Limestone Cavern and rescue Sekiya. 
    Princess Kiku, lord Gohda's daughter, hands over her sister's bells for 
    good luck. 
    
    In the room you start off in, there is only one enemy. Kill him when you 
    get a chance. Move through the cave opening now. Keep moving through 
    until you see another enemy. When he moves out of sight, run and kill 
    him. Keep going straight until you get to a sloped part of your path. 
    There is a pitfall and an enemy ahead of you. If you fall in a pit, you 
    will instantly die. When you do, hold down R1 so you can crouch and keep 
    walking forward. Get up close to the wall, but do not press your back 
    against it. When you get confident enough, jump over the pit and near 
    the enemy. Press square before landing for a sure stealth kill. Next, 
    keep going straight. You will come to an area with 3 enemies, one below 
    you, one in a cave, and one way up high on a ledge. I suggest killing 
    the one below you with a blowgun. Now, try to stay away from the one by 
    the cave. Grapple up to the ledge above and move across it until you see 
    the feet of the enemy. When they turn away, jump up and stealth kill 
    them. 
    
    Turn to your right and there will be yet another enemy in front of you. 
    Wait for them to start walking away and they are out of sight. Run 
    towards the spot where they were and jump over the pit. They will most 
    likely be walking back toward you now so drop down into the pit. This 
    actually isn't a pit, but more of a hole because it has a bottom to it. 
    Hang onto it until the guy starts walking again and stealth kill him. 
    Jump back down into the hole and walk straight. You will eventually come 
    to a big wooden bridge. There is an enemy there on your left so press up 
    against the wall and wait for them to turn away. When they do, stealth 
    kill them. 
    
    Now, walk back towards the part where you first got on the bridge. You 
    have to actually walk off of the end of the bridge. This is a long drop, 
    but there is ground below and it is the way to go. Now, walk towards the 
    next cave and wait for the enemy there to turn around. When he does, 
    kill him. See that cell? Go up to it and release Sekiya. Now we must get 
    some explosives. Go straight and when you get to an area that has some 
    large kegs that prevent a crawlspace, move up and stealth kill the 
    guard. Then, move the kegs and go get the explosives. Now, keep going 
    straight. You will come to a big room with a lot of water and stuff 
    everywhere eventually. When you do, creep through it and go to the path 
    on the left. Kill any enemy you see. Keep looking up for a big walkway. 
    When you see it, grapple up to it. Follow it to the next area. Kill the 
    enemy here. When you arrived, look in the direction that is to the right 
    of that. See that big boulder? Just go up to it, place the explosives, 
    and run. 
    
    Time for a boss fight. This is Kagura and Spirit Wolf. They are rather 
    easy. You just have to keep clear of Spirit Wolf and always go and try 
    to attack Kagura. If you have any, try some sticky bombs. These work 
    well. If you get tired of Spirit Wolf attacking you, kick his ass. After 
    you kill Kagura, the mission is over. Note that Spirit Wolf is not 
    required to be killed.
    
    Mission complete.

    ======================================================================

    Invisibility Spell, Kasumi and Shizuku
    
    After the battle with Kagura, you return to lord Gohda to report the 
    situation regarding the tunnel and Sekiya. Lord Gohda thanks you for your 
    courage and decides to hold a strategy meeting with his men. He returns 
    a few hours later. The plan is to send you in to kill the leader from the 
    inside. You must infiltrate the fortress and eradicate the enemies from within.
    
    This mission is very tough. There are lots of dangers in this level. The 
    enemies seem like they are tougher and there are loads of pitfalls. 
    There are Monks, undeads, and jonins throughout this level. 
    
    In the first area, just scan it for jonins and stealth kill anyone you 
    see. Move on to the area with the big log. Move across the log halfway. 
    Scan the area below for all of the enemies and watch the ways they move. 
    Then, jump down to the roof of the house below. Whenever you think you 
    have the best chance, stealth kill one of the enemies and quickly take 
    care of the other one. If you need to, you can always jump back onto the 
    roof after killing one and wait for the other again. There is a health 
    potion on the far side of the building so get it. When everyone is gone, 
    go around the corner. You should always keep an eye on your Ki meter and 
    stealth kill all of the enemies that you come in contact with, but I'm 
    pretty sure you know that already. Keep going until you reach a very 
    large room. 
    
    This room has a lot of enemies in it and it will be pretty hard to make 
    your way around it and stealth kill them all, but it is for the best 
    considering that they are extremely hard to fight since they are so 
    strong and they will have other enemies to come and help them. The 
    room's exit is on the far right side. Just kill all of the enemies and 
    make your way to that part. Ok I will give you a strategy on the guard 
    near the exit. He is standing right by it and will almost never move. 
    What you need to do is, grapple up to the wall along the side of the 
    cave that is to the enemy's left. Then, press your back against the wall 
    and slowly creep towards him. When he looks to his right a little, go 
    out and stay close to the wall. Run and kill him with a stealth kill.
    
    Now, go through the opening and climb the stairs. These next few rooms 
    contain large guns that overlook the fortress's outside compound and the 
    areas have lots of enemies. Keep going through the gun rooms and stealth 
    killing all of the enemies. In the next gun room, you need to look for 
    an area above you that you can grapple to. When you see it, grapple up. 
    There will be a monk in front of you so wait until he turns. When he 
    does, take him out. Then move to the left side of the platform. Find the 
    small wooden bridge on the left side and go on it. Continue through the 
    corridors and stealth kill any enemies that get in your way. Continue 
    through the rooms until you reach a room with a female guard in the 
    bottom of it. Use a blowgun to take her out, and then move up the step-
    like stones. There is a jonin at the top of one of the steps so you need 
    to kill him when you get the chance. 
    
    After you do, search the area for the top of a guard tower. Jump onto it 
    or leap to the area below it. Continue in the only direction possible 
    until the boss chamber. You are about to face Tatsumaru, who in my 
    opinion, is one of the hardest bosses of the game. Tatsumaru is fast, 
    but Ayame is faster so use that to your advantage. I suggest throwing 
    sticky bombs on him and detonating them if you want to make this much 
    easier. Try to not stay too close to him and block anything he throws at 
    you. Just keep using your combos and or items to your advantage. When he 
    is dead, you have won.
    
    Mission complete.

    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Ninja Rebirth, Healing Potions, 
    Invisibility Spell, Kasumi and Shizuku
    
    Here it is, the last mission in Ayame's campaign. This mission, in my 
    opinion, is actually easier than Part 1 of Tenrai's Fortress. We will 
    see I guess. On to the walkthrough. 
    
    When you start out, immediately grapple up to the ledge above you. As 
    you did in the last mission, you need to move through all of the 
    hallways and kill any enemies that you come in contact with. Keep an eye 
    on your Ki meter as it will help you a lot in this fight. Keep going to 
    an area where there are multiple pathways. All of the paths lead to the 
    same place, but they are slightly different. Just pick one and move 
    through it, killing anyone you see. After patrolling the maze, you come 
    to the exit of this level. Jump to the raised doorway. There are lots of 
    female ninja guards so keep a look out for them. 
    
    Keep going until you come to a room with several large pillars in it. 
    Use the grappling hook to reach the first pillar. Then, look around for 
    an opening in the wall that has an item in it. Jump into it get it. 
    Then, jump back onto the first pillar. Grapple up to the other ones and 
    then grapple to the ledge that will let you keep progressing in the 
    level. The next room contains pillars that you have to jump onto. One 
    false step and you will fall to your death. Jump from pillar to pillar 
    and eventually, to the ledge by the wall in front of you. If you want, 
    you could always use the grappling hook instead of making the last jump 
    because it is more of a sure thing. Now, walk down the walkway until you 
    see a jonin. When you do, time yourself right and eventually kill him. 
    
    Move around the room and go up the steps, step by step. The next room is 
    a grid that contains a lot of enemies. You should use your Ki meter a 
    lot here. When you get to the staircase, look up and grapple up. Now, 
    grapple up again to the ledge above. Go up the staircase and eventually, 
    you will see an enemy and a gap in the staircase. Try to take him out 
    with a blowgun or a stick bomb or something because you don't want to 
    have to fight him on such a narrow strip. If you have to fight him, 
    proceed with caution. After he is dead, climb up onto the walkway above. 
    Look to your left and grapple to that side. Kill the guard right by you. 
    Then, go along the walkway and look down. You should see a big drop with 
    an area you can drop to with an item. Drop down and get it. Next, look 
    up the wall to your left. Grapple up to the ledge above. Just keep 
    grappling and jumping around until you get to Tenrai. You should have no 
    further problems until you get to him.
    
    Now you are up to the final boss of the game, Tenrai. He has three 
    phases. Each phase is stronger than the last. First up is his weakest 
    phase that has 150 hit points. I suggest using the Exploding Arrows or 
    Sticky Bombs on him, but don't use too many. Save some for later phases. 
    In the first phase, he will have several long range and short range 
    attacks. Just keep him locked-on and move around a lot. Use combos to 
    him whenever you feel you have a good chance. After he is dead, here 
    comes the second phase. The second phase is a lot harder and has 200 hit 
    points. Your hits at first will seem as if they are not doing any 
    damage, but after a while, there will be a cut-scene and then they will 
    start to. He seems to block a lot now, but just keep trying to do combos 
    and eventually you will kill him. Use the same techniques as the first 
    phase. Here comes the third phase along with it's 200 hit points. The 
    third phase is probably the easiest. Just keep using the same techniques 
    as the first and second phase and you will win eventually. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Tesshu Fujioka is a doctor by day and a cunning hired assassin
    by night. He differs from Ayame and Rikimaru in several ways.
    Most importantly, he's much slower than Ayame and somewhat
    slower than Rikimaru, and he's more powerful than either of
    them.

    Mission 1: Echigoya
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Smoke Bomb, Throwing 
    Needle
    
    When the law fails to serve justice, one can buy justice. Underground 
    groups offer assassinations at reasonable prices, but they only take 
    on missions that they agree will serve justice. This is the story of 
    Tesshu Fujioka, a doctor by day, a hired assassin by night. It's a 
    warm spring evening when Tesshu is ordered to murder Nasu and Echigoya. 
    Both are guilty of kidnapping village girls and selling them as slaves 
    to neighboring states. The families of the daughters feel that the 
    officials won't punish Nasu because he's a high-ranking statesman. Both
    Nasu and Echigoya must die.
    
    You start off on the ground outside of the compound. First, select your 
    Grappling Hook and grapple onto the wall in front of you. Once you get 
    on it, run to the right and then go straight. Keep running along the 
    wall until you come to the northeast corner of the level. Jump down onto 
    the concrete and pick up the white ball, which is a smoke bomb. Now, get 
    back onto the wall. Go straight towards the northwest corner of the 
    level. When you get there, there is going to be a guard on the ground 
    and a guard above you. Get all the way up against the wall and wait for 
    the guard on the ground to look away. Immediately jump down and stealth 
    kill him. Then, grapple up to the ledge where the other guard is 
    standing. When he is facing away from you, get up there and stealth kill 
    him. Now, go straight towards the southwestern part of the level. There 
    are going to be guards all around the courtyard so just silently take 
    them all out. After you have, look around the main building for a place 
    with a door. There will be a beehive by the door so that will help you 
    find it. Once you do, go up to it and go through it. Go through the 
    doors and you will eventually find a little hole in the wall. You can go 
    through it so hold R1 and go through. Here comes a loading screen. 
    
    Peek out of the door a little of the shack that you end up coming out 
    of. Look to your left. There will be a guard lying down on a blanket. Go 
    up behind him and kill him, but make sure there is no one else around 
    first. Take out anyone else in the courtyard. Now, look around for a 
    part of the fence where there is no barbed wire. You need to climb over 
    it. Run all the way to the right side of the non-barbed wire fence. Look 
    for guys around there to kill. You see that huge house in front of you? 
    You need to get to the other side of it so hop on the roof and walk over 
    it and drop down on the other side after making sure there are no guards 
    around. Look for the door all the way on the right on that side of the 
    building. 
    
    Once you are inside, we have to start looking for a key. Turn on your 
    map. You need to get to the room all the way on the lower-left corner of 
    the map. Kill the guy in there and get the key. Next, go through rooms 
    and killing people. Just do the normal routine until you get to the 
    locked door. Unlock it with the key and make your way to the basement. 
    Grapple up to the room that leads to the staircase and keep going 
    straight. Go up the staircase when you reach it. Keep going from room to 
    room doing the normal routine, watch the Ki meter and kill. When you get 
    to a room with a cat, get in Stealth mode and get as far away from it as 
    possible. Go past it and go through the crawl space. Now, grapple up to 
    the wooden ledge above at the end of that room. Now, just make your way 
    to Nasu. Just keep going straight and you will reach him. Kill anyone 
    that crosses your path. 
    
    Once you enter the battle, immediately try to kill the ronins. I suggest 
    throwing a smoke bomb down to confuse them. Now, just kick their asses. 
    Keep using combos and keep as far away from Nasu as possible. Once you 
    kill them, go for Nasu. After beating him to death for a while, he might 
    try to give up or something. If he does, do not approach him. Try to get 
    close, but not close enough for him to attack. Immediately start 
    pummeling him and after a while, he will go down. Just keep using the 
    same maneuvers over and over. Combo after combo will get you victory.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 2: Gohda's Castle
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Healing Potion, Blow Gun, Throwing 
    Needle
    
    Nasu was killed by another assassin. This truly bothers Tesshu. He 
    doesn't sleep well that night. Tesshu's curiosity about Gohda's Ninja's 
    escalates because Zennosuke keeps telling him to forget about it. He 
    says that crossing swords with the Azuma is the same as suicide.
    But Tesshu is still angry that he couldn't collect his fee because 
    Rikimaru got to his target first. Ignoring Zennosuke's advice, Tesshu 
    sneaks into Gohda's Castle to find Rikimaru and prove to himself that he 
    is the better assassin.
    
    In the next mission, you are going to want to get the most number of 
    stealth kills possible. It will really help you in this mission to stay 
    hidden from your enemy. Just use as much stealth as you can and you will 
    do fine. Keep an eye on your Ki meter throughout the duration of this 
    mission.
    
    If you have already played through the game with Rikimaru, go to the 
    room where Rikimaru killed Hamada (asking since you might have used 
    cheats). It is the long room on the right side of the map. If you 
    haven't already played with him but played with Ayame, get to the part 
    of the level where there is concrete on the ground and there is a 
    hallway that you can enter in front of you and to the right of you. It 
    is almost near the starting point of the level. After getting there, get 
    in position where you can see a hallway in front of you and to the 
    right. Take the one to the right and keep going straight. Keep on the 
    right side of the hall so a door will open when you near it. This is the 
    door to go in. When you get inside, go through the secret door. Just 
    look for it and you will see it after a minute. 
    
    When you come out, you will end up near a staircase that leads to the 
    second level of the level. Move through the two rooms, kill the guard by 
    the staircase, and go up the stairs. Remember the part of the level 
    where you were supposed to go to end the level to fight Hamada as Ayame? 
    Well, you need to get to that room. Just keep going through the rooms 
    and stealth killing. You should have no problem at all of finding it 
    because it is a very straight-on path. If you get lost, consult the map. 
    The room you are looking far is on the opposite side of the map from 
    where you entered the second level. 
    
    After you get to the room, a boss fight will commence. You have to fight 
    Rikimaru. Rikimaru is pretty easy in my opinion. He is faster than 
    Tesshu, but not as strong. Just keep blocking his attacks and using 
    combos on him. You will eventually kill him. The fight will end when 
    Rikimaru gets down to 50 hit points so it won't be that hard. Just watch 
    out for his leg sweep. That could mess you up. If you see him going for 
    it, try to move out of the way. Oh and one more thing, smoke bombs are 
    extremely effective on Rikimaru. If you have any, throw some down and 
    then start pummeling him with attacks. Soon, the fight will be over.
    
    Mission complete.

    Mission 3: Buddha Temple
    =======================================================================
    
    Recommended Items To Bring Along: Strength Potion, Healing Potion, 
    Throwing Needle, Blow Gun
    
    Six months after Tesshu's failure to kill Nasu, he takes on a new mission. 
    He's hired to kill Ganda, the head of a new religious cult that has taken 
    over the Buddha Temple on the border of Gohda's realm. Ganda took part in 
    the plan to sell village girls to neighboring states as slaves, but he 
    escaped justice because of his religious profession.
    
    Like when you played through this mission with Ayame, this mission 
    begins with a boss fight. You have to fight Ganda, who is a freaking 
    giant. This dude is huge. Anyways, he can be as bad as he looks. Attacks 
    don't seem to take as much off of him as they would on other people. He 
    also happens to have 200 hit points, which doesn't help you that much.
    
    This guy is terribly slow. He is even slower than Tesshu. When he is 
    about to attack you, you can usually tell so you need to try to run in 
    the opposite direction because he has a large attack range because of 
    his long arms and legs. When he attacks, just move away and then hurry 
    back and pummel him with hits. Smoke bombs are very effective on him if 
    you have any. I don't think you can actually block this guy's attacks so 
    you might as well not even try. Just keep using the method I said about 
    when he is going to attack and beating the hell out of him with combos. 
    It might take a healing potion to help you with your cause, but he will 
    soon be dead. After he is, time for the level to begin.
    
    Move from the scaffolding to the walkway, and go through all of the 
    corridors. This doesn't actually lead to a way out, but it helps with 
    stealth kills. Keep killing guys and watching your Ki meter. Try not to 
    get into any one-on-one fights because this will cause other guards to 
    come and help. Anyways, keep going until you drop down to the main 
    floor, which isn't too far ahead. Just keep going straight. Run around 
    the right side of the statue to find the way out of this area. Now you 
    are about to be outside, but beware, there is a big ass bear just 
    waiting to gnaw you to death. Do your best not to alert it. If you do, 
    run as fast as you can. Eventually make your way to the exit and kill 
    the guard by it. Drop down there. 
    
    Any enemies that are still alive from the last area will follow you and 
    this includes the bear so do not waste time. Keep moving. When you come 
    to the big pit with only a board at the bottom, turn around and look up 
    for a place to grapple to. It will be tricky to get up there, but that 
    is the way to go. After getting out of there, go into the temple area. 
    Kill the guy near you and grapple up to the beams above you. Keep 
    continuing. You are going to come to another pit. Jump from side to side 
    of it until you come to the edge of it. Then, use your grappling hook to 
    get on top of a tall pillar. Now move into the next room. There is going 
    to be a wooden bridge somewhere in there. Jump over to it and kill the 
    guy that you are going to have to fight. Then, grapple back up to the 
    place where you jumped. Look for a way out at the top and then grapple 
    when you see it.  The next room is going to have a lot of bridges on a 
    pit. Jump down there and kill the guard. To your right will be the exit 
    and go. 
    
    Mission complete.

    Tesshu is very surprised to see Jinnai, a former member of Muzen, the same 
    underground organization that Tesshu belongs to. When Tesshu wakes up, he 
    is in a prison cell. All of his tools for his midnight job have been 
    confiscated. Tesshu must get his tools and escape.
    
    Tesshu is about to spend a while in a cell. He gets locked up and loses 
    all of his items. He is going to bust out and you have to recover them 
    and then leave the caverns. This is going to be a rather easy mission 
    compared to the last one and the ones ahead of this. All of the items 
    are in these little cell and they have a good amount of guards around 
    it. Don't worry though. Just keep an eye on that Ki meter.
    
    You are going to start out in a cell with a guard just a few feet from 
    you. Press your back against the wall and when you think the time is 
    right, circle it and run and kill the guard. Now, we need to look at the 
    map so press Select. Look for little red dots. Those are your missing 
    items that you need to get. They are pretty close and they are in a cell 
    like the one that you were in. Go towards the first one. It is going to 
    be by a crawlspace by a bunch of barrels. You need to kill the enemies 
    around the cell and then go get it. That was the only thing you had to 
    get. 
    
    Now pull up the map again. You need to get to the exit of the caverns. 
    The exit is in the room at the upper-right corner of the map. It should 
    be very easy to get there since you are going in a straight line after 
    all. Keep going until you get to the room with a lot of water everywhere 
    and has the risen walkway. There are going to be a lot of ninjas in 
    there so be ready. I suggest shooting them with the blowgun or you could 
    just try to kill them yourself. Either way, you need to get on top of 
    that risen walkway in that room. When you do, just follow it to the 
    exit.

    Needle
    
    A cold shiver goes down Tesshu's spine. It's intuition, a gut feeling that 
    something truly bad is about to happen. Tesshu hates himself for feeling 
    these things in advance. He must hurry to the hut in the Cemetery, because 
    Senkichi is waiting there to pay him for his services.
    
    Unlike the time that you had to play through this mission with Rikimaru 
    and Ayame, you have no undead foes. Everyone is alive and out to kill 
    you. There are lots of enemies on this level and you should keep an eye 
    on your Ki meter at all times for it will save your life. 
    
    At the starting point, just move down towards the first passageway and 
    keep an eye on your Ki meter like I said in the above paragraph. Enter 
    the first passageway and make your way through it and doing business as 
    usual. Just kill and keep an eye on the Ki. Eventually, make your way to 
    the Blood Room. When you get there, look down there for a jonin. You 
    need to kill him with a blowgun dart if possible because he is going to 
    go kamikaze on you if he sees you. He has his pockets loaded with 
    grenades and wants to die. Just try not to get in contact with him. 
    
    After you kill him, exit the Blood Room by going to the other end of it 
    and grappling out. There is going to be a jonin right at your hands when 
    you are hanging from the ledge of the exit from the Blood Room so be 
    ready. He won't try to blow himself up though so don't worry. Just get 
    up there and kill him. After you do, keep going until you exit the 
    passageway. You need to go through here and jump over a fence to the 
    other side. Just look for the fence and kill everyone that crosses your 
    path. After you jump over it, move through the area to the next 
    passageway. Just go straight through this set of passageways and kill 
    anyone you see. Stop when you come to the exit of the passageway. 
    
    There are three guards out here. You can easily kill them all without a 
    fuss. Just go and kill them. Make your way to the next passageways. Keep 
    going until you get to a dead end and look up. There should be a hole 
    there. Grapple out of it. When you get up, look for a hut and run to the 
    front of it. That is the end of this mission.
    
    Mission complete.

    Potions
    
    Senkichi is dead. Tesshu knows that it had to be Jinnai, the only one who 
    knew about the secret handoff point for payment. Zennosuke will know what 
    to do. Tesshu rushes to the Ronin Village to meet with him. The village is 
    infested with Jinnai's men.
    
    This is Tesshu's final mission. You are on your way to find the end boss 
    so be ready. This mission is full of enemies and it is a lot of fun to 
    kill them all. This is the funnest mission for Tesshu probably. You will 
    have a stealth kill fest. Have fun.
    
    You are going to begin at the gate of the Amagai Castle. Turn left. See 
    that building? You need to get on the other side of it and enter it to 
    talk to Zennosuke. That is your objective for now. Just kill any guy 
    that poses a threat to you that is in front of the house and then go in. 
    After the cut-scene, you need to get to the door that leads to the next 
    area. It is at the other side of the map from the house and is on risen 
    land. Just make your way to it and stealth kill anyone that poses a 
    threat to you.
    
    Now you are in the Keg Area. You don't actually have to kill anyone in 
    this area, but you could if you want. If you don't want to, just hop 
    from keg to keg until you get to the exit and go through the next gate. 
    If you do, just be careful and make your way to the gate after. From 
    here, go straight. You need to kill all of the enemies on your way too. 
    Go straight until you reach some water. Then, follow the water to a 
    crawlspace that would have been on the opposite side of the map from 
    you. If someone is chasing you, do not enter the crawlspace or they will 
    blow you up.
    
    Now you are in the final area. You need to go look for Ukyo who is 
    leaning up against a hut or something. He is a Chinese guy with a big 
    hat on and he looks like someone that you would see in some old Chinese 
    movies. Approach him to start the final battle of Tesshu's campaign. 
    This guy is pretty tough. He is very quick and powerful. He blocks a lot 
    and is very hard to hit. He also has a really long stick so that means 
    that he has a large striking range. Blocking will be your best friend in 
    this fight. Just take your time and block, hit, block, hit, and 
    etcetera. This is how you will win this fight. If you still have some, I 
    suggest using your smoke bombs to distract him.

    =======================================================================
    
    Now, turn left and go straight. After like 2 steps, a cut scene will 
    commence showing a burning tower-like thing fall. Don't pay attention to 
    it. Keep going straight and you should be in between a wall and a 
    building. Keep going straight but go very slowly for you will meet your 
    first enemy ahead. When at the opening, look around the corner and there 
    will be a yellowish looking dog. When it is turned around, run and press 
    Attack near it. This will get you your first stealth kill! Now turn 
    around. You should be facing the wall. 
    
    See that red box over by the wooden planks stacked against the wall? Go 
    over to it and pick it up. This will give you invisibility for a while. 
    Now, turn back around and go towards that big wooden box near a 
    building. Get the red thing by it. This is more healing potion. Now use 
    your grapple hook by picking the item farthest to your right in your 
    inventory like thing on the screen. When selected, hold triangle and 
    point it towards the white building directly across from the box and 
    point the grapple towards the roof. 
    
    When it is on the roof, let go of triangle and let the grapple beam hook 
    on. This will cause you to fly on top of the roof. Now, get the red box 
    in the middle of the roof and now you have sticky bombs. Now, turn 
    around and hop down from there onto the ground below. See that big box 
    again? Well, hop onto it and then onto the roof of the house right by 
    it. Continue walking down the roof until you get to a guard. When he is 
    turned around, hop off and press attack. 
    
    If he didn't see you, this will cause you to do a stealth attack. Now, 
    turn to your right and you should see a ramp. Go up it but do not go all 
    the way up for there is a guard up there and he cannot see you. Press 
    against the wall by the ramp and when the guy turns around, quickly jump 
    up to ground level and go and stealth attack him when close by pressing 
    R1 and Square. Now, walk over him to pick up his spear. After that, walk 
    off of the edge of the ground and go straight. 
    
    You should be in between two buildings. Go through them and drop down to 
    the ground below. Look near the red house and you should see a guard and 
    an unarmed man. When the guard and the unarmed man are both turned, 
    quickly run to the guard and kill him. Now go for the unarmed man. Now, 
    keep going straight where you killed the unarmed man and you should see 
    a big hill like thing that you can go up. There is a guy with a bow and 
    arrow up there. You need to climb onto the edge of it and wait for him 
    to turn around. When he does, kill him and take the bow and arrow. Now 
    you have a bow and arrow! 
    
    Now, go back towards the building where you killed your first human. 
    When you are in front of it and are near where the first guard you 
    killed was standing, turn and look at the courtyard where the unarmed 
    man and the guard were. Jump down onto the ground below and you should 
    see some vase looking things around there. Break them and get the item 
    there. It is more healing potion. Now, go towards that red thing by that 
    building in front of you and break the vases there and get that pick-up. 
    Now head back to that red house in the courtyard. Go towards the door 
    and a cut scene will commence. 
    
    After it, you will need to take care of two guards that are charging 
    after you. Hurry and kill them with sword combos and such. After that, 
    here comes the boss fight! The boss is a guy wearing red and has a sword 
    and a gun. You need to avoid the sword as much as possible. Just keep 
    doing sword combos on him and he will eventually die. If you need more 
    health, just use the healing potion. Congratulations for you have beaten 
    the demo!

    Bonus Mission: Through The Portal
    =======================================================================
    
    As the castle collapses, the only way to escape is to jump into the 
    portal that Meioh flees into. Inside the portal is another universe - a 
    world in which a large biotech pharmaceutical company has created a deadly 
    disease and sold the cure at a substantial profit. Many civilians couldn't 
    afford the cure and died. The government's auditing of the company's 
    accounting procedures led to the unveiling of a huge fraud, but the 
    CEO bribed his way out of jail. You must punish this evil CEO!
    
    Through The Portal takes place in the future. The point of the mission? 
    You are supposed to kill an evil CEO of a pharmaceuticals corporation 
    who got people sick or something just so he could sell them the 
    antidote. The level is flooded with guards and stuff that are cops. 
    Well, on to the walkthrough. 
    
    Go straight a little and peek to the left around a wall. You should see 
    a guard. When he starts to walk up the stairs, run over to him and kill 
    him. After you have, run back down the stairs. At the feet of the 
    stairs, turn left and walk straight. When you see a ledge on your left 
    side, grapple up to it, but do not climb up. There will most likely be a 
    guard there. If not, go up and hug the wall on the left and peek around 
    the corner to watch the guard. Kill him whenever you think you have the 
    best chance. 
    
    After that, go straight. There is going to be a guard near the entrance 
    of this door so be cautious. When he turns around, kill him. Look in 
    front of you and you should see a small walkway by a bunch of machines 
    and pipes. Go in it a little and peek to the right. There will be a 
    guard there that is walking up and down a walkway. When you think you 
    have the best chance, stealth kill him. Now, go out the door and get on 
    the walkway. Look to your left after you get on it and there will be a 
    guard. Kill him any way that you can. Then, turn and go the other way. 
    Once you start nearing a fence, look to the left and up and you should 
    see a ledge. Grapple up to it and then walk to where you have passed the 
    fence. 
    
    There will be a guard down there. Jump on the risen walkway above him 
    and when you get the chance to, take him out. Next, go to the next fence 
    and face the wall on the right. Grapple up to the ledge above you. Look 
    around up there for a crawlspace and go through it. In the next area, 
    there are three cops. When you enter it, turn to the left to where you 
    are seeing the long part of the room. Now I can tell you the guard 
    locations. There is one walking around in the middle, one to the right 
    of the room near a pillar and carrying a gun, and one that is walking 
    from left to right way in front of you. 
    
    Above you is a walkway. I suggest grappling up to it and jumping down on 
    each enemy one at a time and repeating the process. This is the easiest 
    way to do this. If you don't want to, you really don't have to kill 
    them. Anyway, after you kill them all, get on the walkway above you and 
    follow it to the crawlspace and go through it. When you come out, there 
    will be a guard right by you so stealth kill him right when you see him. 
    
    Follow the hall to the elevators and kill the guards by them. Go in the 
    elevator on the right. When you get to the next floor, kill the guard 
    that is walking up and down the hall. After that, enter the doors. Here 
    is the boss fight. The evil CEO is your enemy here. This guy is pretty 
    damn hard and very strong. He is packing 250 hit points. He blocks a lot 
    and seems near impossible to hit. He has a lot of powerful attacks too. 
    Don't get too close to him and always be ready to dodge and block 
    things. When you get the chance, go in for combos. If you still have any 
    caltrops left, run away from the CEO and drop them. Keep running and he 
    will follow you. When he steps on the caltrops, go in for a combo. This 
    is a pretty effective method for defeating him. When you kill him, you 
    win.
    
    Mission complete.

    To unlock more missions, you need to beat more missions in the story
    mode. 
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 1: Village
    =======================================================================
    
    There are a few lost scrolls that you need to obtain. They are scattered
    throughout the level and the point of the level is to get them. Enemies
    will also pick up the scrolls so you need to kill anyone that picks them
    up. 
    
    This level is very fun. It looks just like the first section of the 
    ronin village level in the story mode. On this level, I suggest 
    not going anywhere by foot. Make your way through the level by
    going from rooftop to rooftop. Also, have you and your friend split
    up. Then, just go around the level and pick up all of the scrolls.
    Also, enemies can pick up more than one scroll. Use your map to
    find the scrolls. Try to stealth kill all of the enemies because
    they will call for back up and you don't need all of the level's
    enemies after you at once. Rely heavily on the grappling hook.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 2: Battleground
    =======================================================================
    
    Lord Gohda has been wounded on the battleground and will not survive
    another hit. You need to fight through all of the enemies and get to him.
    Then, you have to save him and escort him to the safe area. 
    
    The best strategy to use is to have one player stay with Lord Gohda at 
    all times and fight anyone that comes. Then, have the other player 
    run ahead and clear the path of enemies. Sure this won't be as fun
    for one player so just switch turns. 
    
    There are archers that are hiding behind fences that will fire
    at Lord Gohda. Have the guy that is clearing the path go and kill
    them all. Have the guy that is staying with Lord Gohda take care
    of the rest of the baddies. After you get to the safe area, you are
    done. 
    
    Mission complete. 
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 3: Castle
    =======================================================================
    
    This mission can be very hard if you are playing with someone who 
    likes to fight and doesn't take their time when progressing through
    levels. You have to stealth kill everyone in this level. If you
    get seen even once, the mission is failed. 
    
    Some of the areas might require you to kill two enemies that are
    very close to each other and would be impossible to do with just
    one person. If so, just take your time and both of you kill them 
    when you both agree that you have a good chance of making the kills.
    You need to just go through the level and get to the end to beat it. 
    After that, you are done.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 4: Cavern
    =======================================================================
    
    You need to get 240 points to beat this level. You get points for doing
    things like stealth kills, regular kills, and more. The best thing to
    do is to travel together and get double stealth kills, which will give
    you more points. If you do not meet the required number of points, you 
    fail the mission. Just get the number of points in the amount of time 
    and you are done.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 5: Fortress Of Evil A
    =======================================================================
    
    This mission is like a big battle royale. You need to make your way
    through the level and just kill everyone in your path. The point is to
    kill everyone. Do not leave one enemy behind. You and your friend need
    to travel together though because the enemies will gang up on you in 
    groups and double team you. Just make your way to the end of the level
    and you win.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 6: Fortress Of Evil B
    =======================================================================
    
    This mission is pretty tough. It takes place in one huge room and you
    have to fight bosses from all of the levels. You have to fight 2 at 
    a time. I suggest for you to have one character lead a boss to one side
    of the room and the other player lead the other one to the other side. 
    This will be a lot easier for you in my opinion. After you beat each
    round, you are done.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Co-Op Tips
    =======================================================================
    
    I am now going to list some tips for co-op. 
    
    ----
    Talk
    ----
    
    You guys are sitting right next to each other. You need to talk your 
    way through levels. You need to discuss things before you do something.
    If one person does not agree on doing something just yet, you probably
    shouldn't do it. Just take your time and discuss things. If one person
    needs help with something, go and help them.
    
    ------------------
    Dual Stealth Kills
    ------------------
    
    A dual stealth kill is given when both characters stealth kill the same
    guy. To do this, have one person go and press Square for the stealth kill
    and have the other player be within 10 feet of them. I think you should
    try to do this as often as possible because it gives you lots of points
    and it looks cool.
    
    ----
    Help
    ----
    
    You should always watch your friend's screen. When it seems as if he 
    might get into some combat and need help because people are ganging
    up on him, you should go and help him. This will decrease their 
    chance of dying and help your chances of winning the mission.
    
    -----
    Roles
    -----
    
    You should always know your role in a mission. One person needs to do
    something and the other needs to do something else. I don't think you
    should always try to walk together in missions because it is much 
    easier if you aren't together. 
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Well, I hope those tips helped you. Have fun!

    #######################################################################
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 1: Village
    =======================================================================
    
    In this level, you have to fight computer enemies to get to the other
    player. When you get to them, just fight them. The level is the first 
    part of the Ronin Village and there are enemies scattered all over the
    place. 
    
    I suggest getting on a rooftop and watching out for the other
    player. Try not to kill the computer enemies if you don't have to and
    let them take life off of your friend. After that, just fight your
    friend to the best of your ability and you will most likely win 
    this battle.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 2: Battleground
    =======================================================================
    
    This level is more complicated than the last. Stay on roofs and try
    to avoid all enemies if you can. Just try to make your way to the
    other player. If you have to fight others, just try to do combos and 
    or stealth kills. After you kill your friend, you win.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 3: Castle
    =======================================================================
    
    This level is like a big maze. I suggest killing all enemies that you
    come into contact with so you will know where you have already been 
    before. Just make your way through the level until you find your
    friend and kill him. 
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 4: Caverns
    =======================================================================
    
    There are no computer enemies in this level. The cavern is like a cave
    at the bottom and an upper level at the top that has lots of planks laid
    out everywhere. If you are battling on one level, go to the other level 
    to escape if you need to. After you kill your friend, you win. This 
    level is much easier than the others due to there being no computer 
    enemies.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 5: Fortress Of Evil A
    =======================================================================
    
    There are lots of risen platforms in this level. You need to just 
    come in contact with the other player and kill him to win. There
    are no computer enemies in this level.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Mission 6: Fortress Of Evil B
    =======================================================================
    
    This is just one big level. There are absolutely no enemies here so you
    are in for a head to head fight between each other. Just do your best
    to kill the other player and you will eventually win this level. This
    is also the last Versus map.
    
    Mission complete.
    
    =======================================================================
    Versus Tips
    =======================================================================
    
    I am just going to list some tips on killing your friend, well, enemy
    in this section.
    
    ---
    Map
    ---
    
    You can see your enemy's location on the map that you can pull up by 
    pressing Select at all times. Right when the mission starts, you can
    hurry up and pull up the map to get their location. If you have an
    Exploding Arrow handy then, you can just turn in their direction and
    fire. This will give you a leg up in the fights.
    
    ------
    Health
    ------
    
    You should watch your health meter at all times. I suggest to only
    use health potions when your health is at 30 hit points or below. 
    Because you both have the same amount of health and health potions,
    health potion use can make a difference in who is going to win
    the level or not. 
    
    ---------------
    Wrath of Heaven
    ---------------
    
    If you have this ability unlocked, I suggest to almost never use it.
    If you do want to use it, it will instantly kill the other player. 
    Since it leaves you with only one hit point left, you must land it
    on the first try or the other player can hit you and kill you. Just
    try to align it correctly and use it with caution. If you aren't 
    too skilled with using the ability, I suggest not to use it at all
    throughout the versus games.
    
    --------
    Cheating
    --------
    
    You should always watch your enemy's screen. This will give you a 
    sense of where they are and how they are playing the game. Sure it
    is cheating, but if you want to win very badly, this is the way
    to do it. Cheat at the best of your ability. 
    
    --------
    Rooftops
    --------
    
    Rooftops are always important because you can keep an eye on the map
    that you are currently playing in. They will also help you stay away
    from computer enemies. If the other player is on a rooftop, this will
    also decrease your chances of getting hit by a long range projectile
    from him. You also have more battle options from the rooftop. For 
    example, if the other player is walking on the ground below you, 
    you could jump behind them and hit them from the behind. This will
    vastly increase your chances of winning. 
    
    ======================================================================
    
    Well I hope this helped you. Have fun!

                            Endings And B-Side
    #######################################################################
    
    Thanks to BNii for this whole section that he let me use out of his
    FAQ/Walkthrough on the game. You can check it out at GameFAQs.com
    among other sites. 
    
    This section will give you both of the alternate endings for Rikimaru
    and Ayame and it will explain the B-Side dialogue. The alternate 
    endings are obtained by doing one of the two options on the Cemetery 
    level for either character.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Both Rikimaru and Ayame have two possible endings, and a variation of 
    cut scenes involving the boss for their ninth mission (Onikage of 
    Rikimaru and Tatsumaru for Ayame). The branching point for the endings 
    occurs in Rikimaru's sixth mission (Cemetery) and Ayame's sixth mission 
    (Amagai Castle). These are spoilers so consider yourself warned.
    
    ===============================================================
    Rikimaru Ending 1 - Use the Shichishito sword to repair Izayoi.
    ===============================================================
    
    Rikimaru asks Ressai to use the Shichishito sword to repair Izayoi. 
    Ressai asks if he's certain, as although the steel in the Shichishito 
    sword is as strong as the steel in Izayoi, combining the two could 
    have unexpected results. Rikimaru asks him to do his best, then 
    retrieves the additional steel for Ressai to repair the Izayoi.
    
    When Rikimaru confronts Onikage at Tenrai's fortress, he is suddenly 
    struck by mysterious energy emanating from the sword. Onikage tells 
    him that he's fallen for his trap. He intentionally plotted to let 
    Rikimaru retrieve the Shichishito sword and repair Izayoi with it. 
    Now that the Shichishito's power is running through the sword, 
    nothing can stop Mei-Oh's return. Despite the evil energy in Izayoi, 
    Rikimaru still manages to defeat Onikage.
    
    Rikimaru confronts Tenrai and begins to do battle with him. Tenrai 
    calls forth the power of Mei-Oh and it seems that Rikimaru is powerless 
    against him. Tatsumaru's voice calls to Rikimaru to use the power of 
    Doujutsu and focus on his right eye. With renewed strength Rikimaru fight 
    back. But the power of the Shichishito in Izayoi is overwhelming, sending 
    the sword flying through the air. Ayame tries to give the sword back to 
    Rikimaru, but the sword is too powerful for her to handle. Against all 
    odds Rikimaru grabs Izayoi and manages to defeat Tenrai.
    
    Lord Godha and Sekiya arrive to see Tenrai standing. Sekiya panics but 
    Tenrai ends up falling over dead, with Rikimaru victorious behind him. 
    Gohda comments on how lucky they are to have the Azuma ninja on their 
    side.
    
    ============================================
    Rikimaru Ending 2 - Don't use any new steel.
    ============================================
    
    Rikimaru tells Ressai to do his best to repair Izayoi with the steel he 
    has on hand. Later at Tenrai's fortress Rikimaru fights Onikage in a 
    climactic battle. Rikimaru then confronts Tenrai and begins to do battle 
    with him. Tenrai calls forth the power of Mei-Oh and it seems that 
    Rikimaru is powerless against him. Tatsumaru's voice calls to Rikimaru 
    to use the power of Doujutsu and focus on his right eye. With renewed 
    strength Rikimaru fights back. Tenrai is defeated, but in a last ditch 
    effort he leaps up to kill the exhausted Rikimaru. Rikimaru drives Izayoi 
    through himself, impaling both himself and Tenrai.
    
    Lord Godha and Sekiya arrive to see Tenrai standing. Sekiya panics but 
    Tenrai splits in half, with Rikimaru victorious behind him. Gohda 
    comments on how lucky they are to have the Azuma ninja on their side.
    
    ============================================
    Ayame Ending 1 - Let Rikimaru fight Onikage.
    ============================================
    
    Ayame lets Rikimaru fight Onikage while she hurries off to the Buddha 
    temple. At Tenrai's fortress Ayame fights Tatsumaru in a decisive battle. 
    Ayame wins but spares his life, telling him that there's much she has to 
    tell him. She runs off to confront Tenrai. Ayame fights Tenrai, who uses 
    the Jewels of Heaven and Earth to transform into a monstrous form. Ayame 
    seems powerless to resist, but the sister's bells given to her by Princess 
    Kiku begin to resonate. The light from the bells cancels out Tenrai's power, 
    and Ayame takes advantage of this and defeats Tenrai. Tenrai can't believe 
    that he lost, and in a last ditch effort to destroy Ayame sacrifices himself 
    to free Mei-Oh from his prison. At this time Rikimaru and Tetsumaru show up. 
    Tetsumaru has a box filled with explosives (?) and tells the others to get 
    out of fortress while he destroys the portal for good. The two Azuma ninja 
    leave and Tatsumaru says that while he has strayed from his teachings, he'll 
    make up for it by destroying Mei-Oh. He tells Kagami to wait for him (a 
    reference to Tenchu 2's story line) as he blows himself and the portal up.
    
    After the destruction of Tenrai's fortress Ayame broods on the events that 
    have recently taken place back at the Azuma ninja village. As she looks at 
    the bells Kiku gave her, she hears Kiku calling her name. Kiku arrives 
    followed by a slightly winded Godha and Sekiya.
    
    ========================================
    Ayame Ending 2 - Fight Onikage yourself.
    ========================================
    
    Ayame decides to fight Onikage herself while Rikimaru reports back to Godha. 
    She manages to defeat Onikage, but despite dealing a seemingly fatal blow 
    Onikage disappears yet once again. Later at Tenrai's fortress Ayame meets 
    Tatsumaru again and defeats him in an epic battle. Out of nowhere Onikage 
    appears to attack Ayame, but before he can strike her Tatsumaru stabs and 
    grabs him. He then proceeds to step off the platform edge, taking both of 
    them to their doom.
    
    Ayame fights Tenrai, who uses the Jewels of Heaven and Earth to transform 
    into a monstrous form. Ayame seems powerless to resist, but the sister's 
    bells given to her by Princess Kiku begin to resonate. The light from the 
    bells cancels out Tenrai's power, and Ayame takes advantage of this and 
    defeats Tenrai. Exiting the fortress, Onikage suddenly appears and attacks 
    Ayame, but is stabbed by Rikimaru. Onikage dissolves into nothingness while 
    a nonplussed Ayame ignores Rikimaru's outstretched hand to help her up and 
    the two of them leave the fortess. Gohda comments on how lucky they are to 
    have the Azuma ninja on their side.
    
    ============
    B-Side Story
    ============
    
    The B-Side dialog track can be unlocked by earning a Grand Master ranking for 
    the first layouts of all of Rikimaru's and Ayame's missions. You do not have 
    to get a Master of Assassins ranking for all of Tesshu's layouts. You can 
    select the dialog track in the sound option in the options menu. The B-Side 
    track is basically a humorous outtake on the normally serious dialog of 
    Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven. Note that the subtitles will not match the new 
    dialog so you will have to listen carefully. Onikage's rant in the Limestone 
    Cavern is hilarious.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Just a little note, but if you want to see both endings for Rikimaru
    or Ayame, just go replay the Cemetery level and pick the option
    that you didn't choose the first time. Then, beat the Cemetery level
    and last level again.

                          Frequently Asked Questions
    #######################################################################
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q = Question
    
    A = Answer
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Is there a debug code in the game? 
    
    A: The debug code is supposed to be a series of codes this time around 
    instead of one long code. There are a few parts of it released already 
    and I will add the rest of them in this FAQ as they are released. Until 
    then, you could always check up on http://tenchu.de for the latest 
    Tenchu news and they will have the codes first. 
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: What is the score needed for the Grand Master rating?
    
    A: You need at least 450 points.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Can I still sheathe my sword and drag bodies?
    
    A: No you cannot do either.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Is there a level editor?
    
    A: Nope.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Can I play as Tatsamaru?
    
    A: Not at the moment, but after the rest of the Debug codes get 
    released, there could be a chance at them letting you.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: On the Cemetery level with Rikimaru, I have a choice to do one of two 
    things to the sword. What happens if I pick the wrong one?
    
    A: There is no right or wrong choice. The only thing that this affects 
    is two cut-scenes towards the end of the game. 
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Should I get this game?
    
    A: Yeah.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: For a ninja, why is Tesshu so big and slow?
    
    A: Well, he isn't a ninja. He is just an assassin for hire. 
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: How do I unlock the secret level, Through The Portal?
    
    A: You must beat the game with Rikimaru, Ayame, and Tesshu.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: How do I unlock the B-Side dialogue and what does it do?
    
    A: You have to Grand Master every level on the first layout for Ayame, 
    Rikimaru, and Tesshu. It is basically a different dialogue in the game 
    and a new plot. The new storyline is geared toward laughter and not 
    seriousness unlike the real story.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Where is the Stone of Power for Rikimaru and Ayame?
    
    A: It is in the Amagia Castle level for both of them. Towards the end of 
    the level where you have to go outside for a bit, there is a secret door 
    that you have to lean on to make it open right past the wooden bridge. 
    It is in that room.
    
    =======================================================================
    
    Q: Where are Rikimaru and Ayame's third weapons?
    
    A: It is in the Buddha Temple level. Remember that pit towards the end 
    of it that was mostly gaps and you had to jump on the small planks of 
    wood? Well look in the pit until you find a platform. This platform is 
    like a little bridge. Jump down onto it and look for it down there.

    and I just thought of them. It is really the final version now.
    
    Version 1.9: 03-29-03: Ok I guess I was wrong. I have forgotten

    to add things.

    Please check the Frequently Asked Questions section of the FAQ before 
    emailing me. I'm getting tired of answering the same questions over 
    and over when they are answered in the FAQ. If you email me something 
    thatI have clearly answered in the FAQ, I will not respond. Sorry but 
    I just can't answer the same questions over and over. If you wanted to 
    give feedback about if you liked the FAQ or didn't like it and you are 
    viewing this at GameFAQs.com, just press the rate button instead of 
    emailing me. Thanks and enjoy the FAQ.
