Inuyasha-The Secret of the Cursed Mask Introduction This is my first FAQ, so I hope everyone who reads this understands everything. I've played this game five times in a week so I can try to get this Guide as accurate as possible. I cheated while playing this game using Codebreaker v.7.0., so I will point out that I cheated, just in case you play this game without cheating. This guide will help you out by beating the game quick as possible. The first time I played this game it took me 13 hours to beat, second time 9 hours. While I'm typing this guide I will be playing this game again so give everyone full detail about everything. And plus I have a short memory so I have to play this again while making this Guide.

As the reincarnation of the late Kikyo, she carried the jewel inside her body until it was ripped out of her body by a demon (See Episode 1 "Into the Well").

You can use this to your advantage when you try to defeat the demon that will have the greatest risk of hurting you or your friends or setting up a complete circle of Co-Op attacks After defeating the Enemy, you get EXP points, money and sometimes random stuff. But if everyone loses their health during a battle, it's game over and you have to continue from your last save point. Intervals These occur when your traveling around the fuedal era, after you stay at an inn you can pair up with any character to gain friendship with a character which you can unlock Co-Op Techniques and Movies.

The Walkthrough While I'm playing this game and writing everything down that I do. I will show you the right path to either gain experience or beat the game quickly. When you first start the game, you have the choice of starting the game as either a Kururugi Boy or a Girl. There is a difference on who you choose, the boy has more powerful Special attacks while the girl can use her Special Techniques to heal all characters. I recommend using the boy if you're into beating the game quickly, if one move kill attacks. If your using the girl, I highly recommend with using Co-Op attacks or just use her to heal the other characters during a heavy battle. When you start the game as either the Kururugi boy or girl you get an animated cut scene of either the girl or boy talking to their friend talking about how all their friends have boy/girl friends and you don't. You arrive at your home the Kururugi shine for the annual Doll wishing festival. Your father tells you to go to the store house to get some supplies. You go into the store room to find the supplies to only find yourself in the feudal era. This is where your journey begins. You land in a field as soon as you get your character walk right to try to call your home. After the scene walk right again to see some villagers. After realizing that they're not your friends they come after you. You automaticly run away from the villagers to only find yourself a side dish for a demon. Just keep pressing the X button to scroll through the scenes until you kill the demon without realizing it. You wake up to find yourself in front to a dog man, it's Inuyasha. After Inuyasha wakes you up and find out that you're from "The present", Inuyasha tells you to follow him to meet Kagome to find out what's going on. After walking alittle bit, Inuyasha says he smells demons near by. Run into the purple cloud to start your first battle. These demons you fight are very weak but they can still kill you if your not careful. After the fight, Inuyasha yells at you on why you didn't use the power you used before on the last demon. But you don't know what happened. Myoga shows up to introduce himself and tell Inuyasha, that you didn't know how to use your powers either. Myoga goes ahead, while yourself and Inuyasha are left to find your way to the village. Keep walking right, you'll see more purple cloud as you come to a fork in the road that goes either North or South. Take the path south if you want an herb, otherwise go North. More purple clouds are around as you walk/run. If you want to try and build your characters up in EXP run into the clouds, otherwise just keep going around the bend to the North-East. You'll come to the Map screen, you can save here if you want otherwise go into go to Kaede's village. Kaede's Village When you enter the village, you'll run into Kagome who yells at Inuyasha for not helping her slay a demon. The Kururugi boy/girl will start flipping out on why everything is so different. Kagome tells him/her that this isn't the present but in fact it's the fuedal era of japan. After that Inuyasha and Kagome start fighting as they normally do, after their done fighting Kagome tells you about the Bone Eater's Well behind the village. Kagome now joins your party, walk to the right, and head north into the woods, keep going north until you get to the well. Skip through the scenes if you want, after the bickering ends between Inuyasha and Kagome, Inuyasha pushes you into the well to find out that you can't go back through that way, so you must find another way back to the present. After you get pulled out of the well and get control of the main character, Kagome tells you to talk to Kaede. Head south from the well then turn west, keep going west until you come to two houses. Once you get to Kaede's house, you'll meet another Kagome (Huh What The ?!?). But it turns out that it's Shippo, practicing his art of transformation. Shippo and Inuyasha start fighting as usual, until Kagome gets fed up and tells Inuyasha to sit. After that you meet the Priestess of the village, Lady Kaede. After talking with Kaede, Kagome says that everyone should talk with everyone in the village to see if they come with anything. You have to talk to every person in the village in order to trigger the next event, so start walking around and talking to people. Start by going behind Kaede's house and talk to everyone on screen and in their houses, (Talk to the chicken too.) If you played the game before the cat will be sitting next to the tree on the far right side. Talk to this cat to start your new game with the level you ended the game when you last played. After talking to the people on the upper half of the village, Inuyasha says that their getting nowhere. But continue talking to everyone when you get back in front of Kaede's house. Walk to the right and talk to everyone, in front of the shop, in the field and on the path to the well. When you get back to the well, Inuyasha asks you can you remember anything, you say no. Kagome then says that everyone should try the next village. Head back to the shop and Kagome will tell you about Akebi Village, the store and how you should buy stuff that will come in handy. Go to the store and Kagome will explain how stores work. After buying what you don't need. Head back to Kaede's house and she will wish you luck. Now head back to the store and take the path in front of the store to exit the village. Save in the Map screen if you want otherwise head to the Road to Akebi. Road to Akebi Read the sign, it tells you to beware of demons. Follow the path until you come to a fork in the road. Head North and keep following the path until you come to another fork head East. (Also while your out here your run into random battle even though you don't run or touch any purple clouds but don't worry c ause all the demons are very weak if you already) You'll come to another fork in the road head North to exit the Road to Akebi. Akebi Village When you enter the village a merchant will have some intersting items on him such as Power rings. Head East and talk to the guy in front of a shrine. He tells you about an old temple that's inhabited with demons. (Oh how interesting!) Head North and talk to the three people one of them tells you about a person named Kakuju. Continue North-East to talk to Kakuju. Kakuju will either be Female (if your the Kururugi boy) or Male (if your the Kururugi girl). Keep talking to Kakuju and she/he will unlock the Shikigami power within you. Kakuju will take you to touch a rock made of Serpentine to test your new found powers. The rock is the sparking object on the right side of the screen, just walk to and press X to watch it turn red and explode. After talking to Kakuju, talk to everyone around the village to get more information about this spider demon that has been kidnapping people. Go south and turn East and talk to the villager on the far right of the screen, he misses the girl named Sachi that lived in the house next to him. Talk to the guy in the middle of the road to found out more information about the spider demon, he mostly tries to scare you about how big the demon is. Head north and talk to the guy in front of the tombstone, if you want. There's a blossom branch and wild flowers on the left side and far back on the screen. After that head back to the enterance of the village to meet one of the men that was chasing you when you came into this world. (He's the guy with the dark clothes on) He'll forgive you about chasing you and ask you to get back his daughter. Looks like a mission is in store for the gang of four. After finished talking to the man and his wife head out of the village to the Map screen. Save if you want. Road to the Old Temple It's very spooky isn't it. Continue walking East until you come to a villager, he tells you about a cat under the stairs that can save your travel journal. Walk to the North-West to pick up a silver bell & some tonic. Head back to the road and pick up some sacred tree dew. Now head East to the old temple. When you get to the front the Kururugi boy/girl will agree that this place looks like a spiders dwelling. Turn left and head through the door. You can walk through this whole house if you want it slightly lessens the chance of starting random battles (The demons here are weak if you have high leveled characters). Head north and go into the hallway. (Also on a sidenote Equip Shippo with all of the power rings you bought to try and increase Shippo's attack.) Turn Left and go into the room walk to the back of the room to find the "Old Temple Key" go back out the room and continue East down the hallway but stay to the lower part of the hallway or you're going to miss the Light Brown door you need to unlock with the "Old Temple Key." Pick up the items or enter the other rooms if you want to only explore and/or level up. The other room have letters that tell you about how scared they are or how did they misplace the "Old temple Key." Enter into the room you unlocked with the key and you'll find the cat the traveler that he was talking about. Save if you want unless you don't think you have the right stuff go on ahead. Head Downstairs and head behind the stairs into another hallway. Head Left and walk all the way down to the open door on the bottom of the hallway. Head South into the hallway and watch out for Purple clouds, head all the way down until you come to doorway with a purple cloud in the middle of it, Enter this hallway. Inuyasha will say that there is a strangle smell in the air and everyone should stay here until he gets back. Kagome will sense shards of the jewel nearby and starts to worry about Inuyasha. Kagome and Shippo take off, but only get captured by the demon. After the little event run along the north side of the room until you come to a door way. Go inside and you'll see everyone caught in the spider's web. Your character sees a something shining above the spider and throws a Shikigami attack at the serpentine. And everyone becomes free from the web. And you'll go into battle mode with the huge spider demon. This demon is kinda Strong, but if you have high leveled characters then this battle is easy. The Giant Spiders HP is only less than 700 so it should be too hard to fight him. After the fight you should be able to level up if your not cheating like me. After the group thanks you, you notice a large cocoon, Inuyasha cuts it open to find Sachi. After the scene you head back to Abeki Village. Back in Abeki Village. Sachi runs home and thanks everyone. While your here in Abeki, visit Sachi's family and you'll recieve 1000 from the family thanking you for their daughters safe return. After that go back and visit Kakuju to thank him/her and you'll get a lesson about how to use your Shikigami powers during a battle. After the lesson you've learned to use Raging Flame. Head out of the village and head to the Map screen. Head back to Kaede's Village. Kaede's Village Head to Kaede's house and rest. While resting you can team up with any of the three characters to gain friendship so you can learn to use Co-Op attacks. It doesn't matter who you do with, as long as you make friends with everyone to unlock all of the Co-Op attack Movies. The next Morning head out of Kaede's house and go to the shop. You'll run into a fat man who said he's seen you before in another village, but where Oh Yes! It was in Kasasagi Town! But of course the main character has never been there. So head back to Kaede's house to talk to Kaede. Looks like you have to investagate on why this guy reckonized you. So it's off to Kasasagi Town. Head Back to the map screen and save if you want. Road to Kasasagi More demons are ready to do battle with your party. They're still weak but fight them enough to change your luck and level up. Go around the bend and watch out for Purple Clouds. Walk South to the next screen. You'll come to a fork in the road but due to the trees your unable to see the path heading East. Head East and follow the snake path, You'll come to a T in the road continue to head East, there's a demon bone on the ground but it might be hard to spot. There's some snake skin along the bend to give to the farmer in Kaede's village. You'll come to another T in the Road, Head West and run along the bend, you'll find a silver bell on the path, continue along the path to come back to the Map screen and Kasasagi Town is now unlocked. Save if you want, otherwise enter Kasasagi Town. Kasasagi Town When you enter the town everyone spilts up to find information, which leaves you by yourself. Continue East and talk to the people if you want, otherwise to into the store. If you have the money buy some Silver Bracelets, Crystal Hair Gems, and maybe some other stuff to regain HP or restore normal status during battles. Leave the Store and head North. Talk to the people if you want, otherwise investgiate the (?) Mark on a sign. Huh Oh! It looks like the person on the wanted poster is you. The town guards capture you and put you in jail. The headman of the village says that a person named Kagura is looking for you. Who is this Kagura person anyway? What what do they want with our hero? After winding up in a jail cell you'll notice something shiny on the West wall of the cell. Sweet! it's Serpentine Rock, you use you power and break out of the cell. Now you have to get back to the Group. Now your standing in front of the headman's house, head South because you can't go West or you'll be captured again. Once you head south you'll be in a huge maze of houses. This maze is confusing but since you're reading this I can get you out without losing your cool. Once you get to the 4 way path go South, pass the old man, South again, now you'll see a man in brown standing there, Go West, West again and Wow your back in the village. Head South and you'll see Kakuju (depends if your the Girl) otherwise head North and then West and you meet up with the group again. You explain to them that a person named Kagura is looking for you. And the group is shocked and to know that it's Naraku's incarnation, who set you up. Gotta go back to the Headman's house through the House Maze (Damn! Again!!). Head East, then go South, Then West, West again, then keep going North until you come to the Headman's house. The guard stop you and tries to capture you again but everyone runs away. Kagome comes up with an idea that Shippo should turn himself into the main character and turn himself in, so they can get inside to see Kagura. Once you get inside the gates of the headman's house, everyone will hear a strange noise, It's The Demon Insects known as the Saimyosho. Everyone figures out that it is Kagura who's here in the village, trying to capture the main character. When you notice that the demon insects can track your movements out pops two demons ready to fight, but Inuyasha comes back and joins the group and now a Battle begins against two Salamnder monks. They're kinda weak their HP is less than 857 so if your characters are high in levels one Special technique on the two demons can finish them off. Walk around the fence to see the headman getting attacked by more demons, you start a battle against three demons. They're still weak their HP is less than 257. After the battle, pick up the object next to the headman and go back to the first house. Enter the house and run all the way to the back of it to meet Kagura. Battle Time again. Kagura can attack only one character with Dance of Blades and can use critcal damage to that character. Don't worry about the Skeleton birds they miss half their attacks. Aim all your power at Kagura to defeat her, after you defeat her you'll be attacked by Utsugi but don't worry he does no damage to any character. After Inuyasha gets hit, Utsugi & Kagura take off. Go back out and talk to the headman, the headman thanks you for defeating the demons. After he walks away, go to the enterance of his house and the headman will stop you again and gives you 3000. From the headman's house walk West, then west again now South, then West, and leave the Town. Save on the Map Screen if you want and head back to Kaede's Village. Kaede's Village When you walk back into the village you'll find Sango & Miroku. If your the Kururugi Girl, Miroku will walk up and ask you if you would like to be the mother of his children. But if your the Kururugi boy this event won't happen, Miroku will talk about a village that they just got back from that had strange things going on. So it's off again to find out what going on in castle town, but you have to go through Tsuzumi Village first to get there. Kaede shows up and offers everyone to rest before heading back out again so soon. While your taking the day off you have the chance of Gaining friendship again, choose anyone that you like. The Next Morning while talking to Kaede, she gives you some old fashioned pants known as Hakama. Now head off back to the Map Screen and Save if you want. Since you now have Sango & Miroku at your side, battles will now be b oring because the demon's will always be outnumbered. Get into battle if you want to you can level up and change your luck. And since you now have Miroku in your party try to place him as the first person in a battle. He will be useful in boss battles since he can use his Spirit Vision to view the HP of all the enemies on screen. Forest to Tsuzumi When you enter the forest, you'll run into Kakuju. He tells you about a tailsman that can help you while your in battle, while in battle Co-Op with Miroku to cause serious damage on the enemy. Pick up the Nectar if you want to, otherwise head East. The main character will ask Miroku if he can do the normal stuff a monk can do, such as chant and do funernals. You can pick up the shaman remedy if you want, otherwise Head South, continue along the path until you get to a sign. It says that the village is to the south, so path the path south (Duh). Keep going until you come to a T-fork road, Turn East and continue walking east to get to Tsuzumi Village. Tsuzumi Village As soon as you enter the village, a man is being chased by a demon. Use a Special attack on him to quickly get rid of him. After winning the battle, the old man offers you a free place to stay. After arriving at the man's house he tells you that that road to Castle Town is blocked by a landslide. After Miroku asks the man, if there's any women in the village, Sango gets mad and looks around the village for information. While she's out you learn about her family "The Demon Slayers" and the incident that happened when Sango's family went out to fight a demon. And her possessed brother killed her family. After the story about Sango's life, Sango comes back. And everyone says the night. Pair up with anyone you choose to gain friendship and unlock Co-Op attack movies. The next day everyone took off to look for information and so you all alone again to look around the village. Leave the House and head behind the house to the next screen. You'll come to a fork in the road, head north along the river and turn west. Keep going west until you come to the enterance of the village, take the road behind the sign. And you'll run into Kohaku who is being attacked by a demon, he quickly kills it to save a cat. Kohaku runs off to find the cat, now head back to the village and talk to Sango, go back to the enterance of the village turn right, keep going right until you get to the fork in the road, head south and keep going south until to see Sango standing by herself next to a lake. After to Sango head back north and go back along the river and you'll see Kagome standing on the bridge. Talk to Kagome to find out that Kohaku was Sango's brother, head back to where you first saw Kohaku and talk to the guy. He says that he was last seen playing with the cat, after the man leaves the cat disappears into the bushes. Follow the cat and you'll find Kohaku outside a cave. Go inside the cave but beware demons live in here, walk all the way to the right. (if you get into a battle here in the cave just run away and save your energy) Continue walking right until you see an old man digging, talk to him to find out that this cave goes to Castle town. Head back out the cave and you'll run into Kohaku, He gets possess by Naraku and trys to capture you but Sango shows up. Kagura shows up too to capture the main character but you she some serpentine rock above Kagura's head and fire at it, causing a cave in. Sango gets anger at herself about her brother and calm her down, you also tell her about new path to Castle Town, so you should go back and tell the others. Head back to the house where you started from and you'll automaticly talk to everyone. You have the option of either staying the night or Not. Do what you want, but I recommend staying to build up friendships. After Sleeping at the old man's house, head back to the cave where you where attacked by Kohaku and keep going until you come out the other side to a Map Screen. The Pass to Castle Town Of course demons are around to mess with you. So continue East until you come to a Y-fork Road head South pick up the Herb if you want. Continue South until you hear screams from some women, run south and see that a demon i s attacking some women. Defeat the very weak demon and the women offer everyone to stay at their mansion. The Mansion Everyone starts out at a dinner table, and one of the women takes Miroku outside. After Miroku leaves Kagome tells you about the "Wind Tunnel" that Miroku has on his right hand. It was a curse that was placed on his family by Naraku. When you get control examine the far right back wall but you can't make it out. Try to leave and you'll hear the two women talking about eating something or someone. Talk to anyone in the room and Inuyasha will examine the wall to find out that it's human blood. Leave the room and you'll be stopped by the two women. The two women transform into demons and a battle begins. Another easy battle against two Serfs, use heavy attacks against them to defeat them. Once the battle is over head North to find a huge party full of DEMONS!!!! Go back and head west and enter the kitchen, there's some lizard blood and a saint remedy. Head back out and continue west to a store room, and examine the (?) on the north wall. It's Ayakashi Spring Sake and it's the favorite drink by demons. Take some and head back to the T-passage way, Kagome says that this is a good place to place the sake. Place the Sake here and wait for demons to show up. And prepare yourself because you're going to be in a battle against demons Back to Back without resting 6 to 7 times in a row. Try to save your Special Techniques to save your health but if your cheating like me use your Special Techniques, to inflict one hit kills against the demons. After the Long battle with the demons, Head north and follow the path to Miroku. Miroku will be talking with a women and gets put in a trance. But the fails as Miroku breaks the barrier and a battle begins against the demon women. Fairly moderate battle use your special attacks and Co-Op attacks to defeat the three demons. After you defeat the demons, Miroku tries to suduce Sango but gets a slap across his face. You guys decide to head back to the village to rest up before heading to Castle Town. Team up with anyone to gain friendship. When you wake up head back to through the cave to get back to the The Pass to Castle Town. Back on The Pass to Castle Town Head East until you come to the Y-Fork road, Head South and then Head south again, follow the path until you come to a T-fork Road. If you go North you can have tea with an old man and gain some Health back, or Just head South. You'll come to another T-Fork, head East and continue to head east until you make it to Castle Town. Castle Town You've finally made it to Castle Town. Everyone talks to each other while at the entrance to the town. Your character says he would like a bath. But Inuyasha says that Kagome doesn't need now and decides to sniff her. Haha Bad move Inuyasha! After you get control head into the town, you can go between the house to get the item shining in the background. While your here visit both the shops by talking to the people in front of them and Select "Wait in Line." Buy some Strengh rings to bring up Kagome and Shippo's Attack stats. After checking out the stores head east and talk to a boy on the left side of the screen. He want you to give his sister a pinwheel who works in the castle and since your going there so why not take it to her. After taking the pinwheel take to the woman in green, she's very worried about her husband who works in the castle, so she asks you to take him some "Riceballs" to them. After talking to the women, head east and then North, you'll see a man on the left side of the screen. Go above where he's standing and walk between the houses to talk to him. He's that there's something very strange going on in the castle. So it's off to the castle's gates to try and get in to see the king, but it's no use the guards won't let you in. So head back to the Inn where the woman in green was standing and enter inside. You'll run into the Headman of Kasasagi Town again, he's here to pay his taxes so, go with him back to the gates and enter the castle. (But before you enter the castle, buy some Herbs and potions to heal yourself, just in case you don't have enough) When you pass through the gate you get attacked by a demon who won't allow you to enter the castle. It's Battle Time again! Against a demon monk, he's weak with less than 300 HP on him it should be easy to kill him with a normal technique. Inside the Castle Once you get inside the castle talk to the fallen warrior, he tell you that there's 30 people in the castle that need to be saved. (Also before starting equip everyone with the Strength rings and braclets you bought at the town store, to gain more hit points) You can save all 30 People but all you get is a "seed" from the last people you save. Walk or run if you like throughout the castle random battle are going to occur anyway. Head to the stairs and go Downstairs, turn right and follow along the center wall until you come to a door on the center wall, Go inside. It depends what your Luck is because as soon as you enter the room you'll be standing the middle of a purple cloud. Turn left and head upstairs, turn right and continue to head upstairs. Once you get to the top you'll see dead samuri and one monk in the corner you can save him if you want, and take the "Passage Key" from the dead samurai in front of the Buddah statute. Head back Downstairs and go back to the first floor. Walk along the west wall until you find a hallway, use the "Passage Key" to unlock the door and head inside. Continue West until you come to a hallway with stairs, head upstairs and don't bother with the other rooms unless your trying to find all 30 people. After you head upstairs follow the hallway until you find the samurai that the women were talking about and they're being attacked by demons. Help out the men by defeating the demons, after beating the demons you'll recieve the "Tower Key." Head back to the main hallway and head to the stairs. There's a cat standing beside the stairs use the cat to Save and I mean you really should save. (If your using any cheating device and have Infinite Health, use this save point and "SAVE" and reset the game without the cheats on. Trust me you really need to turn them off.) After saving head all the way upstairs and you'll run into Toki, who's scared out of her mind. Give her the pinwheel and open the door to the castle tower. Walk Left and go into the room that you can see from the overhead view, there's boxes stacked on top of each other. Walk down than to the left to exit. (There's another person hiding in the boxes when you walk in front of them, help them if you want.) Walk down the hall South and turn Right at the corner, enter the room to make a shortcut, the exit to this room is on the far right side. After exiting the room head north to the stairs and head upstairs. Continue down the hall until you come to a room. Enter this room and you'll hear someone familier. Naraku shows up along with Ustugi, After the scene you do battle with Naraku. I'm tell you right now THERE'S NO CHANCE TO WIN THIS BATTLE. Naraku has a barrier and no one of your attacks and break it not even the Wind Scar. Naraku's attack is devasting as soon as it hits you, it should Critcal everyone and the fight will be over. But if any characters still have any health left don't bother using your turn to heal everyone just use your attack and take the damage from Naraku. Because you one has an attack that can break a barrier (Yet). After losing the samurai come in and try to save the party and lead everyone out through a secret passage. After the whole incident, everyone wakes up in a village and no one knows how they got there. Rindo Village Once you get control, leave the house and head south, go down the stairs and turn right, head up the stairs and you'll find Grandpa/Grandma Kakuju. Kakuju tells you about a way to break a barrier but you need to get a Fruit from the top of Mt. Houoh, you can head back to the house where everyone is or you can gain back some health by visiting the Hot springs. Go to the entrance of the village and turn right, walk past the three men and walk all the way around until you get to a pool of water, talk to the old woman and she says that the bath costs 500. Pay the woman and enjoy. There's some hot springs dew behind the hot spring. Follow the path back to the main road and head back to the house where everyone is. Miroku says that the trip to Mt. Houoh will be tough so after talking go to the store and load up on supplies by walking North from the house. Walk to the right of the store for the entrance to Mt.Houoh. Mt. Houoh Climb the trail until you come to a T-fork road Continue North. At the next fork turn Left, continue Left until you come to a 4 way path, continue Left and you'll come to a hut where you can rest. You can rest in the hut to gain some health back, otherwise continue around the hut and head North. At the Fork in the road turn Left and head into the cave. There's only one path in the cave and it's a very small cave, walk right, then up, then left to exit the cave. Continue along the path and examine the (?) next to the cliff. Shippo will transform and left everyone to the next part of the trail. Keep going until you get to a fork, Head North to Battle a Wind Spirit for the Fruit. This wind spirit is kinda hard even it's HP is over 3000 use all your Techniques to defeat the wind spirit. After beating the spirit it allows you to take the fruit. So head north and take a fruit. After taking the fruit head back to the fork and turn right, examine the (?) and it'll ask you if you want to "go down the cliff" choose this option and you'll be out of the forest really fast. Pick the objects if you want otherwise head south back to a T-path head South and continue to head south until you get back to the Map screen. Head back to Rindoh Village and talk to Kakuju. And you'll Learn Blue Sky Calamity, the normal techniuqe to break barriers. Choose to rest, so you can build up a relationship with anyone. After resting head back to Castle Town & Save Castle Town (Revisited) Once you arrive back in Castle town, you'll notice that the town as really went to hell since the last time you were here. Since your last battle with Naraku, the people left the village and now demons infest it. Head North and you'll Battle Kagura and she now has a barrier too. Well Show her your new technique you got during the battle and defeat Kagura. Kagura has two demons with her, you can attack them first until it's the Kururugi boy/girl's turn to use "Blue Sky Calamity" on Kagura. If you defeat the other two demons Kagura will respawn them with Dance of the Dead which will cause her to lose a turn. Use Co-Op and Special Attacks to defeat Kagura. After you beat her she takes off to fight another day. After celebrating Head East then North to get back into the castle. Naraku's Castle (Revisited) This place is a dump and you can't get to Naraku by taking the stairs in the main hall their covered with wood. Turn Left and find the hallway along the left side. Watch out for moderately strong demons in the castle now, so equip everyone with the most attack and defence as possible. Head left until you get to the stairs, once you get to the stairs you'll find the pinwheel that you gave to Toki after the event head upstairs and you'll notice the wall has been destoryed. Head through the now open wall and run across the roof to the other side of the castle. In the hallway head South and watch out for demons, then turn Right and continue until you see the Samiyosho flying around. Can't go that way yet! Head back to the Main Hall, (The First Hall where you entered the castle) once you get back to the main hall head north and then head west, then south and look for another hallway leading west. Keep following the path until you come to another hallway, head south and keep going until you find some stairs that lead down into the courtyard. Examine the (?) to the right and you'll find a plant that kills insect when burned called Pyrethrum. And take it back to the hallway where you saw the Saimyosho and you'll clear the path to the Castle Tower. After the way is clear turn right and enter the room that in front of the logs. You'll be chased by the dead samurai, Inuyasha decides to hold them off while everyone runs to the tower. You're by yourself again (Also use the cat to save),[If you get into a battle while alone, just run away (highly recommended if your the Kururugui Girl) or fight unless you want to become weak in each battle,] and leave the room through the left door and then head into the room that's in front of the logs. You'll be surrounded by dead samurai and you'll be saved by Sesshomaru. Walk Left and then down to exit the room. And Now head upstairs, to see Jaken talking to Sesshomaru. Follow them into the room and you'll find Sesshomaru & Jaken. They'll join you, so lead the way to the Castle Tower. Walk to the right and exit the room on the right side, head down the hall and then turn right, enter the room so make yourself a shortcut to the stairs. (Since Sesshomaru and Jaken are with you they will fight if you get yourself into a random battle, use Sesshomaru's Dragon Strike, if you want) Once you enter the room you'll find Toki and Sesshomaru kills her. After the battle continue to the right side of the room and renter the hallway, continue north until you reach the stairs and go up and follow the path to the room where everyone is waiting for you. After the bittersweet reunion with Sesshomaru & Inuyasha head south and enter the next room, Sesshomaru is being attacked by more dead samurai. Don't worry about him keep going into the next room. You'll run into demon possessed Yukimura and you'll have to battle him to free everyone's souls in the castle. So you have to battle Yukimura. Yukimura's HP is well above 3000 so use all your best Special and Co-Op attacks to defeat him. After defeating Yukimura the demon insects show up but quickly leave. After the event head out of the town and head to Ayame Village. (A ? Event shows up on the screen over Tsuzumi Village, you can go here to compete in the drum competion if you want.) Ayame Village Welcome to Ayame Village, follow the road into the town. And find out was making Inuyasha sick, after talking to the man about how "Garlic" is good for you, continue east and you'll come to a store. Talk to the man and you can either buy something or stay the night. (Choose to stay if you want so you can build your relationship with anyone) After staying or buying something Follow the path until you come to a swamp, (you can walk into it but Inuyasha will stop you) keep going until you find a fork in the road. When you get to the fork, Inuyasha says he can smell wolves near by. Head north and pick up all the goodies that someone has left for you, continue heading around the bend until you meet Koga the leader of the wolf demon tribe. Koga & Inuyasha fight as usual and say that you're the person that's been terrorrizing their group. Koga takes Kagome, so your off to find the wolf demon cave. Head back to the fork and you'll run into a wolf demon who's lying on the ground, walk to him to heal him. After healing the wolf, you'll learn that someone is accusing you of hurting the wolf demons, south to the "h" fork and continue South. At the next fork, continue south until you come to a fork with statutes on it, turn left and you'll see some more wolf demons, run after them. Turn around and head back the way you came and turn South, at the next fork turn right and run into the same wolves again, They take off again. Head North and you'll come to another "h" path walk around the path and head south, head south again you'll come to the statues again, turn around and you'll see another fork, turn left and you'll run into the wolves again, they take off again. You realize that if Inuyasha got a scent of the wolves, it will lead you to Koga's Lair, make you way back to the man who was offering you "Garlic." Turn around and head back to the fork, when you see the white birds fly by, head North and you'll see two men talking to each other, and Inuyasha gets a strong smell of "Garlic." Continue North and turn left and follow the path all the way back until you reach the village, talk to the man standing next to the vein of garlic and he'll give you one. With the "Garlic" in your hand head back to the "Lost Forest" and you'll spot some wolf demons. Choose to throw the garlic at them and Inuyasha will track their scent. Head back to the swamp and you'll fall into it and you'll have to change your clothes. Miroku will make a smart remark (it depends who you play), after changing head back to the "h" fork and walk to the south-east fork, when you get to another fork, turn and head east, when you get to the statute fork head south and keep going south until you'll come to a road by a river. Inuyasha says that Koga's lair is just up ahead, so follow the road and you'll see some dead wolves, keep going until you get to a cave opening and a barely alive wolf. After two other wolves show up head inside and keep going until you find Kagome. Koga will appear and yells at you that you killed his brothers, you'll get an option choose "Listen to Koga." After listening to Koga, he says that he was attacked near that swamp where you fell in. You'll head to the swamp and Inuyasha will fall in, after Koga laughs at him, head back to the village and buy the snowshoes from the merchant. The snowshoes will cost you 1000, after you buy them head back to the swamp and Koga will take off ahead. Head into the swamp, and walk around the bush and walk south, then turn and head left. You come to this huge area, it's hard to see but you have to go to the left corner of your screen. Run up and run around the bush, walk through the open part in the mud and head to the left, continue walking left until you can't go left anymore turn and head up, walk around the invisble wall to the left side of the screen and you'll find Kagura & Utsugi. It's battle time, it doesn't matter who you go after they both have a barrier, use the defend option until the boy or girl uses Blue Sky Calmaity. Use it on Utsugi first and do as much damage to Utsugi as possible until it's the boy or girl's turn again. It doesn't matter who does what, after everyone gets a turn the battle will end. And Inuyasha will use the Wind Scar and it'll break Utsugi's mask. You'll realize that Utsugi looks just like the Kururugi boy/girl, after the event Kagura escapes but during the distraction, takes you instead of Utsugi. Naraku's Castle When you get control run left and you can save with the cat. After saving go to the south-east corner of the same room of the cat and examine the (?) and you'll find Utsugi's clothes and mask. Run back into the room you started and run along the hallway and you'll see Kohaku, you can talk to him but Kagura shows up and says it's pointless. Enter the hallway that Kagura came from and walk into a big room, walk all the way to the back of the screen and enter that door. You'll talk to Naraku and he wants you to take a girl named Rin. So you & Kagura are off to capture Rin. The Field of Ignorance After talking to Kagura, head South and turn and head west, and you'll see Rin. Rin wants some flowers so she can make a bouquet for Sesshomaru. Look for 6 different kinds of flowers throughout the field. They're very easy to find, when you find it walk to it and Press X. After finding all the flowers, "go with Rin" and she'll talk to Jaken about putting the flowers near the fire. Jaken will think it's stupid, Sesshomaru shows up and Rin asks him if it's ok for you to hang out, and Sesshomaru agrees. Talk to Jaken, Sesshomaru and then Rin, she's hungry so she wants to go out and find food. Follow Rin to the entrance of the Field of Ingnorance and she wants "Wild Boar" for dinner. Head off to the map screen and head off to the (!) marked as ???. Head there and walk around until you get into a random battle, that random battle will be the "Wild Boar." The boar is an easy enemy just use your Special Techniques and you'll kill it easily. After requiring the "Boar meat" head back to the Field of Ignornace and Kagura will thank you for capturing Kin. And it's off back to Naraku's Castle. Naraku's Castle After getting control, head back to that large room and enter the room across from where you're standing and you'll see a huge egg of some kind. Kanna will show up and say that it's a new incarnation of Naraku and this one is unstopable. Head back out of the room and you run into Ustugi, you are forced to battle him/her. It's a hopless battle he/she had a barrier, don't bother breaking it, when it's Ustugi's turn he/she will hit you with a critcal attack and Down you instintly. (If your using a cheating device with Infinite Health on, use "Light of Judgement" to use all your energy and lose the fight. [I don't know if this move is the same for the girl I'm playing as the Boy for this Walkthrough, if it isn't use the move that can heal everyone but will drain all your energy and it'll have the same effect]) After losing the battle, Ustugi will put you in a jail cell. Ustugi will tell you about a barrier that won't allow you to leave, if you do escape the cell. Unless you can destory the stone in the courtyard. After Ustugi tells you the useful information, talk to the guard and he'll battle you for the "Wild Boar Meat." The guard isn't that hard to beat, use your special technique to easily defeat him. Run out the cell and go to the second to last cell along the left side and you'll find Rin. Take Rin and head back into the hallway, Go into the last room on the left side of the hallway for the exit to the large room. When you get to a hallway head north and you'll be in the large room, head to the courtyard, which is down the stairs and leave Rin behind. Walk down and you'll see the Barrier rock. After breaking the rock, head back to get Rin but Naraku will show up. He says that Inuyasha and Sesshomaru and coming to the castle now. You have a choice of either staying with Rin or going to Find Inuyasha. Do what you want it doesn't matter. The same outcome occurs, after Sesshomaru and Naraku are done fighting head to Naraku's room but You'll run into Ustugi, you can't fight him cause if you destory him the Kururugi boy/girl won't exist. After the scene head to Naraku's room and you'll fight his new incarnation. Naraku's incarnation is one tough cookie, his HP is over 5000 so use Co-Op and Special Techniques to defeat this demon. After defeating him you'll get alot of EXP (if you need it). Kagome decides that everyone should head back of Kaede's village. So it's off you go. Choose to Stay, so you can build up relationships. \par Kaede's Village After resting Kaede will tell you that Kakuju is in the village. Head around the house and to where the old man is standing near the tree. He/She will say that in Minamo Village people have been spirited away, so now your off to Minamo Village. Save when you get back to the Map screen. (When your back on the Map screen 2 or 3 Question marks will show up you can explore them if you want, so see some cool events, but otherwise, head to the Road to Minamo) Road to Minamo Village Demons are around, if you didn't know already. Keep going right until you get to a fork in the road, head South, and you'll get to a T-Path turn and head East, Now you'll get to a Y-Path, Turn and head East, and jump across the river to get back to the Map screen. Minamo Village You've finally made it to Minamo Village, everyone will talk about sleeping in a real bed but Inuyasha perfers sleeping on the ground. After talking about taking a hot bath, the character that you have been building a relationship with will say something random. (It depends who you play as and who you've been interacting with the most) After the event, talk to the keeper of the inn and he won't allow you to enter because he's cleaning. Continue on the path and walk around the inn and talk to the man on the left of the screen. After talking to the man about an inn another randon event will happen depending on who've been interacting with more. After the event, talk to the old man on the bridge, he'll talk about people that have been spirited away. After the event, walk to the right and talk to the either a couple or two friends under a tree, after listening to them head back to the inn and walk inside. Walk all the way to the back of the inn and you'll get another random event depending on who you've been interacting with the most. Depending on whatever you did you'll gain a relationship, you will go outside and get water, walk to the entrance of the inn and someone random depending on who you interacted with will show up. Head outside and talk to the couple or friends under the tree, after the event keep going east until you see a randon event (Of course it depends on who you've been interacting with), while talking to one of your friends, you might a get choice of things to say to the person choose "But what about _______." The person who've been talking to, turns out to be the demon Mahoro that has been spiriting away the young people. The person who you've been interacting with the most will show up and help you battle. Use any kind of attack on him his HP is only 700. After the fight, you have feeling for whoever you've been trying to make friends with and you'll run away, and you'll find an old village. And you'll also find Ustugi & Kanna, Kanna trys to steal your soul but an arrow stops their attempts to steal your soul. Kikyo shows up and demands to know where Naraku is, Kanna & Ustugi escape and Kikyo gives you a place to stay. After waking up take the object in the corner if you want and head outside, you see Kikyo collecting souls but you'll think it's beautiful. After the little event, the villagers will start to surround you & Kikyo, both of you take off and Kanna trys to steal your soul again but Inuyasha and the group show up. Inuyasha has a unpleasant reunion with Kikyo has she walks away. After everyone gets back to the inn, Kagome goes for a walk and Inuyasha goes after her. Talk to everyone in the room before heading outside, and you'll learn the story about Kikyo, Kagome & Inuyasha (If you haven't seen the series, you'll be clueless). Head outside and talk to Inuyasha who's standing on the bridge, after talking to them talk to the couple or friends under the tree. Head East until you see Kagome standing by herself, talk to her about Kikyo and such. You'll head back to the inn and Shippo will come running in talking about Kikyo is being attacked in the village that you found her, so head there. Botan Village Save Before entering the village. Head North and walk around the tree and head east and you'll see Ustugi & Kanna attacking Kikyo. Just before the fight Ustugi takes of heading for Asagiri Island, so your left to battle Kanna. Kanna can be a real pain, keep attacking her with Co-Op and Special Techniques to defeat her. Even though she looks like she skipping her attacks, she's saving up for everyone to hit her and return all the damage you've inflicted so far. After defeating her, Inuyasha will have another bittersweet reunion with Kikyo. After the event, head out of the village and head towards Shiyosai Village to get a boat. Off You go then. While at the Map Screen more (?) will appear, go to any event that you want to see random things, otherwise head to Shiyosai Village. Shiyosai Village Talk to the people in the village if you want, they all talk about how people have died fishing near Asagiri Island. Head North and when you get to the pier Turn left and keep going left until you see a lone fisherman. Talk to him to get a ride to Asagiri Island. Asagiri Island After talking to the fisherman, walk the the left and you'll see another boat. Inuyasha will say that Kikyo is here on the island. (Why's Kikyo on the island?) Follow the trail and try not to get yourself into random battles, until you see a T-fork, continue running to the right, until you come to another T-fork, Head North. You'll find a Flaming demon, who has a real short temper about him being small. After being blown up you'll be somewhere different with the person who've been interacting with. Kagura & Utsugi show up and start walking towards you, you have to choose either you want to stay with whomever or find the group, either one Kikyo shows up and the two escape. Kikyo will give you some medicine to give to whomever and everyone else will show up. Walk to the left and follow the path until you get to the T-Path you took before getting blown up, turn Left and head back to the first T-Path, head North and you'll come to a 4 way Path, head North again and make the first left and you'll see Ustugi & Kagura. Follow the path and you'll find a dead end, walk to the large grey wall and you'll open a secret cave entrance, go inside. Inside the cave, everyone will notice something weird going on. After the event, walk up and you'll be in a large room, you'll see a shiny object behind a rock, go over there and walk alittle to the right and you'll see Kohaku. After talking with Kohaku he passes out and you'll have to fight another fire demon. Defeat him to Move on to the next room. Use Specials and Co-Ops to defeat this demon. After the battle Sango will use Kiraira to take Kohaku back to Kaede's village. After the event that follows walk to the right and you'll be captured by the same fire demon that blew up everyone before. Kagura helps you alittle bit by weakening the demon so you can fight him. Use Specials and Co-Ops to quickly destory the demon. After beating the demon the door will open so head through that now open door. You run into the fisherman who then collapses to the ground and Kagura shows up. You have a choice to either follow Kagura or not, "Choose to Believe Kagura." Kagura takes you to the room where Naraku is reforming himself, Naraku will kick up some Miasma but Kagura walks through it and kills Naraku. But Kagura dies because it was only a demon puppet, and you will see Naraku version 2 above you. After trying to beat Naraku v.2, Naraku captures everyone and steals the Jewels away from Kagome. After short event, Kikyo shows up and frees everyone and shadders Naraku's barrier. After Naraku uses the Shards of the Jewel, he becomes Naraku v.3 and a battle begins. Naraku is tough, his Miasma attacks can really damage everyone, use Specials & Co-Ops as much as possible and you'll weaken him enough and everyone will attack him at once and will kill Naraku. Everyone will celebrate and will head back to Kaede's Village. But Ustugi's plans are just beginning. Kaede's Village You'll wake up and realize that Ustugi might know something on how to get back to your time. Leave the house and Talk to everyone, Kagome is outside Kaede's house, Inuyasha is behind Kaede's house chopping wood, Shippo is near the tree playing with children, after talking to Shippo head to the Bone Eater's Well and you'll see Kaede and Kikyo talking about the missing Shards that were not found after beating Naraku. After talking to Kikyo, head back to Kaede's house and talk to Miroku, leave the house and go to the house next door to see Sango & Kohaku. Leave the house and walk to the store and you'll run into Kaede, you tell her that you're going alone to find Ustugi. Leave the village and head to Kasasagi Town. Kasasagi Town As soon as you enter the headman, will ask you to defeat some demons in the mountains. You accept the job and it's off to the Road to Minamo. Road to Minamo (Revisited) Since your by yourself now, it's not a good idea to be battling demons alone. If you get into a battle and it's more than 1 demon run away, it's not worth using your energy and health to battle small demons, we're looking for the head demon in this area. (I suggest running away from battles unless your the Kururugi Boy, he has special technuqies that can kill every demon on the screen. The Girl only has healing Techniques except for one that only works on one demon at a time Run away if using the Girl.) Continue along the road until you get to a fork in the road, head down and you'll come to another fork, this time turn Right and continue until you get to the Y-fork, turn and head south. Keep running along the path until you see a purple cloud at the end of the path. That is the demon the headman was talking about. Walk into the cloud and a demon will jump out, grow and battle you. Use your specials against this demon to quickly kill the demon. BUT WAIT! He's Still alive and has gotten more bigger. Battle him again and you'll quickly realize that he a super demon, if you can get a hit on this demon all your attacks will do no damage or fail. This demon will kill you in one hit but if your using a cheating device use Light of Judgement to use all your energy and lose the battle. After losing, Inuyasha and the others will show up and you'll battle the same demon again, but this time it'll be very easy for since you have your friends. Use Co-Ops and Specials against this demon to defeat him and gain some huge EXP. Inuyasha will smell the demon to be apart of Naraku. After the event, head back to Kasasagi Town, to talk to the headman. Follow the path back to the Y-Path and head east, cross the river and head back to Kasasagi Town. Kasasagi Town If you remember the easy way to the headman's house then I don't need to go in detail about how to get there. Go to the headman's house and walk around the fence to meet the headman and get a nice fat reward. Kagome has an idea for you to visit the last person Ustugi came in contact with, and the last person to contact Ustugi was KOGA. So Leave the village and head to Ayame Village. More (?) show on the map for you to examine and see a random event if you want otherwise, head to Ayame Viallage. Ayame Village Run along the path to the outskirts to find Koga, he tell you that a man said that something weird was going on somewhere along Mt. Houoh. So it's off to Mt. Houoh. Mt. Houoh Head up the Mountain until you come to a Fork in the road, continue North, and turn right at the next fork, at the 4 way Fork, contuinue west until you get back to the hut where monks stay but there's someting very different going on. Continue West and you'll come to a new road. Run along the road until you'll some to some hitogatas on the ground. After realizing they look like the Kururugi boy/girl, they come to life and you'll have to battle them. Inflict as much damage as you can to kill the Hitogatas, after the battle follow the path and you'll battle more Hitogatas. After the battle, Inuyasha will smell something faint ahead, so continue on the path until you come to a village. Talk to the old man and he'll say that this village is called the Kururugi Village. Kururugi Village Head North and continue north until you come to a shrine. He/She will talk about this is the same in the present. After that head back to the fork and head east. Talk to all the villagers, buy some stuff in the shop if you want, after talking to the people go back to the fork and continue west and talk to more people. After talking to the two people to the the house in the back and listen to a woman scolding her boy about playing outside the village. Talk to the woman after the boy leaves. Go back to the entrance of the shrine and talk to the Priest. After talking to the priest, talk to the old man at the fork, after the man head east and talk to the pickle woman, after the woman go back and talk to the women who wanted to make a Kimono for Inuyasha, she tells you about old priest/priestess Kakuju. So now you have to find Kakuju. Head out of the village and you'll come to the Map screen, there's a (!) over Shiyosai Village, so head there. Shiyosai Village Head north and go to where you asked the fisherman for a ride to Asagiri Island, and you'll find Kakuju. Talk to him/her and you'll take him/her back to Kururugi Village. Outskirts of Kururugi Village Grandma/pa Kakuju lags behind and Inuyasha gets upset. Kakuju wants know why your after Ustugi and you tell him/her why. After talking for a bit a Giant Hitogata attacks Kakuju and now you battle a Giant Hitogata. Use Specials & Co-Ops to beat this giant Hitogata. After defeating the Hitogata, Kakuju dies and gives you an amulet. After the event, head into the village and go to the store that next to the pickle woman. Buy as much stuff that can Heal you during a battle and raise your attack power. After your done with that head out of the village and you'll be back to the map screen with a new location. Head to the ??? above Kururugi Village and SAVE before entering. (READ THIS BEFORE GOING INTO THE FINAL BATTLE!!!: If you got a Huge stack on money on you and you haven't been spending it on Healing items and such go to any store that sells Recovery items that can Replinish your HP & Energy quickly. This little side note is for people who played this game by "Not Cheating." But if you have been cheating through out this whole game by now then Stop reading this sidenote and go and beat Naraku!!!) The Final Battle Head into the new location and you'll see Ustugi, he/she will try to steal your soul, he/she will kinda succeed and Ustugi will steal the soul out of the Amulet Kakuju gave you. After the event, the shards that Utsugi has grow black and Ustugi becomes Naraku v.3 or 4 I forgot. He now has the power of the Shikigami since he consumed Utsugi. And now you battle, if it's Kururugi's turn use Blue Sky Calamity and it'll end the battle (kinda.) Utsugi will use his last ounce of strength to destory Naraku's barrier, after Utsugi breaks his barrier, you'll battle him again but this time It's FULL OUT WAR. Naraku's HP is well over 10,000, so use Every single Strong attack everyone has to defeat Naraku, and use Miroku and Kururugi girl to Heal everyone if anyone gets too damaged. After the battle, Inuyasha charges at him and cuts him in half and Naraku is FINALLY no more. After the movie ends, everyone celebrates and Ustugi reappears and everyone buries him at the Kururugi Shine. After Ustugi is buried, the Kururugi boy/girl will start glowing. Depending on what happened in Minano Village, you'll get a random movie and you've completed the Game. I Hope anyone who reads my Full Walkthrough guide, doesn't have any trouble.
