Scenario Walkthroughs ======================================================================= ---------- 1. Kotaro ---------- You can achieve this Sub-Characters scenario by going into the woods in Fog Valley and if there isn't a Kechacha in the second area, Kotaro will help Jubei get out of the forest. Kotaro's Equipment: Kunai Gabishi (Gabishi is defaultly equipped if you bought it in town) Roga Kunai (Found in Red Phantom Realm) Shuriken Fuma Costume Stealth Costume (Found in Fog Valley) Fuma Kyahan Hien Kyahan (Hien Kyahan is defaultly equipped if obtained by trading) Fuma Hachimaki Keimyo Hachimaki (Keimyo Hachimaki is defaultly equipped if bought in town) To start off this young ninja's scenario, Open the first black box to get the BLUE BRACELET. This will enable Kotaro to absorb souls and give tthem to Jubei later on. Cut through the enemies to the top of the cliff and open the 2nd black box to find the RED WEDGE. Next to the log bridge, you will notice a ray of light. Step into it and open the Red Phantom Realm. Look below for the details on this. ========================= RED PHANTOM REALM =========================== Level 1: Here is your basic Jaido enemy. Weak, fragile, need I say more? Cut through them and enter the ray to the next level. Level 2: Joda AND Musaido ninja demons. These guys are much tougher. Wait for them to strike, dodge, and strike back. Hopefully you knock them to the ground. Kill all of them and enter to the next level. Level 3: Bajaido enemies. These are tougher than level one since they take more hits to kill and they use that spin attack more often. But still, pretty easy to cut through and advance to the next level. Level 4: Here's where it gets tough. Zedan combined with Bajaido enemies. Zedans require triple charge attacks to kill and you've dealt with Bajaido before, so you can kill them easily by now. Enter the final level. Level 5: Gaidorazu skull knights and Musaido ninja demons are quite a deadly pair if you don't watch your back. Triple charge to kill the Gaidorazu demons and kill the Musaido like you always have. Collect the Blue Wedge and the Red Stone Poll and exit the realm. ========================= RED PHANTOM REALM =========================== When you return, head across the bridge, killing any enemies and head to the Wind Dragon shrine. Kill the Musaido ninja demons and examine the warning sign to leap up to the cliff. Kill the Battoyako fish demons and open the black box to get the Stealth Costume. Head into the marshland and kill the demons there. Examining the giant tribal statue reminds you of that stone pole you got. Enter the double doors at the north end of the marsh. (Hint: GET THE SENPAMARU SECRET NOW!). Enter the Blue Phantom Realm using the blue wedge on the other side of the spike trap. ========================= BLUE PHANTOM REALM ========================== Level 1: Gyaran and Bazu. The annoying duo is back from the gold mine for some revenge. But they aren't gonna get it! Shurikens are the way to go here. Kill them all and advance to... Level 2: Hyukan...the enemy you will LOVE to hate. Kick them to reveal their cores and hopefully knock them down. Use the Fatal Stab move and move on to the next level which is... Level 3: Hyukan and Gozaresu. I should have stayed in Kansas because I HATE this area. Use stealth magic and you will do fine. Enter... Level 4: Oowashya and Bazu aren't that tough. Use triple charged attacks on the Oowashya and Shuriken on Bazu. Enter the final level... Level 5: Oowashya and Barawashya. Oowashya aren't very hard but the Barawashya is a different story. I mean, THAT THING HURTS. Most of its attacks are unblockable, but as long as you keep doing triple charged attacks, run, and do another triple charged attack, you will do fine. Collect the Blue Stone Pole and exit this Phantom Realm. ========================= BLUE PHANTOM REALM ========================== Now that you're done here, exit to the marsh and use the Red and Blue stone poles on the demon totem. Head into the forest, fighting off the Oowashya and Bazu with whatever shurikens you have left, or use Triple charged attacks. Kotaro will rescue Jubei from that UGLY Jujudormah when you enter the next area. Kotaro transfers all his souls to Jubei and gives him the Senpamaru secret if you got it. I hope you enjoyed this side quest. See my REAL FAQ for the answer to the Trick Treasure Box. -------------- 2. Magoichi -------------- How to get: Be his best ally when you enter the second chamber of the Demon Caves. Tokichiro will attempt to shoot Magoichi with a bullet that turns people to stone, but Jubei blocks it. Magoichi will now go find a way to turn Jubei back to normal. Magoichis Equipment: Tri-Barrel Gun Goraishinki (Goraishinki is default equipped ONLY of you bought at shop) Flamethrower (Flamethrower is Found in Caves) Combat Knife and Flash Bombs Saiga Costume Pirates Costume (Pirates Costume is equipped only if obtained through trade) Saiga Boots Western Boots (Western Boots is equipped only if bought at shop) Saiga Gloves Rasha Gloves (Rasha Gloves is found in Caves) You start in the room where Jubei is frozen. You automatically receive Tokichiro's Memo #2. Open the Black Box to get the GREEN BRACELET for Magoichi to absorb souls with. Head into the next area to encounter Joda and Gyaran enemies. Black them with either one of your guns and move on. Fighting through the Hyukans, you find yourself against Bajaido and a Gerohone. Concentrate all your firepower on the Gerohone and you should kill it in no time. Kill the Bajaido and then operate the bridge controls to lower the bridge. Go across the bridge to enter an area with a magic mirror. Save the game and open the black box to get Rasha Gloves. Equip them and open the other box for the Demon Cave Map. The next area has Dorahyukans and Gyarans. Kill them to enter the next area which is the toughest room here. Inside you will encounted Bazu and a Barawashya. The key is to not move from the entrance. Use your rapid-fire magic with the Goraishinki to easily take out the Barawashya and use the triple charge attack to take out anything else in the room. After you enter the next chamber open the black box to get the Flamethrower + Fuel and open the red box to get the Great Powder Tube. Now you can de-petrify Jubei! Head back the way you came until you come across the room with the magic mirror and the petrified man. Use the Great Powder Tube on him (It has unlimited usage) to de-petrify him. Talk to him twice to get a Medicine. When you get to the drawbridge area, a Ketyara will steal the Great Powder Tube from you. To kill it quickly use the flamethrower on it. If it retreats, go to the next area and try to kill it there. It will keep going back and forth till you kill it. Once you get the Great Powder Tube back, head back to Jubei's room. De-petrify the other men first, and talk to the man behind Jubei to get a Medicine. Return to the very first room, and take the western path. De-petrify the man and talk to him to get a Secret Medicine. Solve the Trick Treasure Box (Look in my main FAQ for the answer and the prize) and open the red box for an Herb. Return to Jubei's room and de-petrify him. Magoichi will hand over the Green Bracelet, transferring any souls and any healing items he received. Magoichi's quest is now over. Hope you enjoyed. ------------- 3. Ekei ------------- To obtain this guy's scenario, you must be highly allied to Ekei when you enter the Gifu Star Tower. Ekei's Equipment: Spear Houtengeki (Houtengeki is default equipped if bought in town) Halberd (Halberd is found in the Castle) Charm Hozoin Garment Ashura Garment (Ashura Garment is default equipped if obtained through trade) Hozoin Leg Guard Fudo Leg Guard (Fudo Leg Guard is default equipped if bought in town) Hozoin Protector Nioh Protector (Nioh Protector is found in the Castle) You start out with a scene where Ekei mocks Jubei for getting trapped, but Ekei promises to get him out. The first thing you should do is head west and collect the Gifu East map and the YELLOW BRACELET from the Black Box. This will enable Ekei to absorb souls and give them to Jubei later. Head into the bridge area and kill the Bajaido and Joda demons and collect the Cherry Key near the slope. Enter the castle courtyard and go back to the dragon tail ramp you used to enter this castle for the very first time. Open the black box to get Medicine. Now go back to the castle entrance and enter. Your hands are full dealing with Jaido and a Dorogando. Use triple charge attacks to defeat it and head through the double doors, or head through the west to save. Inside the double doors, kill the Gerohone, which is NOT necessary since that is the area that you Don't need to explore. Unlock the door to the east with the Cherry Key. Open the black box to get the Nioh Protector, and search for the Crescent key, the Human as Food document, and Artwork #12. Return to the bridge area and run to the north door and unlock it with the crescent key. Quickly run to the northern door and try not to get hit. Head up the mountain path and smash a lantern to get a Medicine. Kill all enemies here while circling around the Waterfall and open the next black box to get the Halberd. Equip it immediately and open the door to the boathouse. Pick up the Hunting Schedule document and ride the boat. Kill or avoid the Oda Bodyguards and enter the house. Beware the Barawashya and use triple charged attacks, your charms, or the Paralyze spell to kill it. Get the Snake Key, Artwork #13, The Golden Evil Statue document, and the Fortinbras Book document. Return to where Jubei is trapped and Ekei will transfer all souls and items to Jubei. Here ends Ekei's Scenario. -------------- 4. Oyu -------------- This automaticly occurs after the Second Gogandantess fight. Oyu's Equipment: Broad Sword Phirangi (Phirangi is default equipped if bought at town) Gradius (Gradius is found in the Oni Sacred Place) Throwing Daggers Plate Armor Silver Armor (Silver Armor is default equipped if bought at town) Leather Boots Hard Boots (Hard Boots is default equipped if obtained in trade) Round Shield Adarga (Adarga is found in the Oni Sacred Place) You start out in the Oni Sacred Place main hall. You see the spirit of Takajo in front of you. She begs you to find the Sacred Flute to help Jubei, and she gives Oyu the RED BRACELET. This will enable Oyu to absorb demon souls. Examine the gate to the Earth Dragon shrine, then save your game at the Magic Mirror since I don't think you want to fight Gogandantess again. Head into the dirt pit and up the opposite stairs. Head past the goddess like statue and kill the Gozaresu by triple-charging your weapons. Grab the Key Plate and quickly escape back into the main hall. Use the Key Place on the Earth Dragon shrine to unlock two doors in the hall. Go through the door behind you to enter a wall with a creepy looking picture. Head through the door at the end of the hall to enter a hall with a green pond (Acid). Double- Charge your weapon to defeat the Oda Bodyguards and open the chests to get the Oni's Place Map #1, Oni's Secret Weapon document, and a Medicine. Enter the next room and triple charge to quickly defeat the Gaidorazu and kill the Joda as if you were Jubei. In the next room, quickly run across the glass panels to avoid being hit by water beams. After waiting it out for about a minute, climb down the ladder. Your main target in this room is the Gerohone. Use triple-charged attacks to kill it, kill the Bajaido if you like, pick up the Adarga, and enter the wall behind the Gerohone. This is preparation for the fight at the end of the bridge. I'm sure this will be no problem. Once you reach the Magic Mirror, save your game and grab the Gradius from the box. Equip it and enter the final area. An Oowashya will drop. Use triple-charged attacks or Oyu's secret technique (Down, Up, ). Quickly inject the souls because a Barawashya will drop now. You MUST either strike it with Triple Charged attacks or stay away from it's unblockable attacks. Once you kill it, you get the SACRED FLUTE. Return to the beach, killing all enemies by remembering from previous encounters. There is no barrier in the Battoyako glass room. Once you reach Jubei, Oyu's quest ends. All souls will now transfer to him and so will all her healing items. Hope you enjoyed. ======================================================================= IV.
