    [--About Narutimett Hero 2 (and myself)--]
    
    First off, welcome to my FAQ! This is only my second FAQ ever, the other being
    for an unpopular Gameboy Color game called Magi Nation. I'm writing it mostly
    because as I went through the game for my first time, I was utterly confused
    about where to go, how to beat certain characters, and even how to attack!
    Quite simply, the game isn't made for Americans, even Americans who know all
    there is to know about Naruto.
    
    So here I am to help with this guide. I'll not only put the conditions for each
    battle, but how to get to each battle and tips for the very hard ones. I'll
    write detailed information about everything that could possibly confuse someone
    new to Japanese games.
    
    On that note, perhaps I should tell you about this game you've just blown sixty
    bucks on. Narutimett Hero 2 is a fighting game, plain and simple. It is based
    on the Japanese manga and anime Naruto, which is a ninja series that focuses on
    a boy named Naruto who aspires to be the leader of his village. The game relies
    more on strategy than its Gamecube counterpart, and is more like the game Soul
    Calibur than a quick fighting game like Tekken.
    
    The game is played using normal martial arts, flashy dodging moves, blocking,
    and special moves called Jutsu. The point of the game is to use all the
    abilities at your disposal to defeat your opponent, which is done by lowering
    their health to 0.
    
    The stages you play on are very interactive- all have at least two parts to
    them, which you can get to by using Teleport (for lack of a better name, Naruto
    fans =P). Some even have three areas, such as the Chuunin Exam Stadium's
    underground tunnel. Using the two areas to your advantage is crucial,
    especially in battles with hard characters like Itachi and Orochimaru.
    
    If you and your opponent are on different areas, the only way you can attack is
    by using long-range items, such as shuriken and kunai. You use these with the
    Item button.
    
    That's about all I can say until we get to the walkthrough. If you have
    anything to add, please tell me using the means available in the Credit
    section. ^_^

    [--Story Mode Walkthrough--]
    
    NOTE: THIS WALKTHROUGH IS INTENDED TO BE FOLLOWED EXACTLY. YOU MAY MISS A LOT
    IF YOU JUST SKIP AHEAD.
    
    CHAPTER 1- THE CHUUNIN EXAM
    
    You begin the arc in a battle between Naruto and Jiraiya, and you are playing
    as Naruto.
    
    [--BATTLE 1 NARUTO (P1) VS. JIRAIYA (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    This is the first real battle you have. Get used to the controls and jumping,
    and don't worry if Jiraiya hits you a few times. Use it to practice blocking.
    
    To hit Jiraiya, use the Air Dash and then press the Melee button until Jiraiya
    falls, then throw kunai until he gets back up. Rinse and repeat until he is
    dead.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    After a scene, you're put in the Hot Springs area. Walk to the west and
    leave the area.
    
    Walk across the bridge and go south then west. You should end up in front of
    Ichiraku Ramen. Examine the red sign to the right of the shop, then go back to 
    the hot springs area and exit on the other side of the bridge.
    
    You'll come out of a gate. Shino should be directly south of you. Talk to him
    if you wish, but he doesn't give you anything. Run across the logs and talk to
    Sasuke. Accept his offer. 
    
    [--BATTLE 2 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. SASUKE (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Enemy's Attack is increased.
    
    ~Tips
    
    Just beat him. I recommend using Naruto since you have some experience with
    him from the last battle.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congratulations, you've unlocked the equippable jutsu Katon Goukakyuu no Jutsu
    (Sasuke's fire breath technique)!
    
    Go back across the logs. Run around the path until you see Gai. Talk to him, and
    choose 'Hai' (two symbols, at the top) when a menu comes up.
    
    [--MINIGAME 1 GAI'S HANDSTAND RACE 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Controls
    
    O and [ ] alternating: Move
    
    ~Tips
    
    It's really easy. Rapidly press O and [ ] (putting one thumb on each is
    wise) and stop when you come up to where the Bull is. When the Bull has run
    past, just keep going. You'll win even if you hit the Bull a few times, it's
    easy.
    
    MINIGAME END--]
    
    From here, go to the west and talk to Hinata.
    
    A new cutscene begins at the Chuunin Exam Stadium.
    
    [--BATTLE 3 NARUTO (P1) VS. NEJI (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    It's really simple to beat him- use the same strategy as you did on Jiraiya,
    but this time get some practice with your special attacks. It's good to have
    those for later on- especially practice on getting through his defenses with a
    Lvl. 3 special attack.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    A cutscene follows, and then another. Then a battle starts.
    
    [--BATTLE 4 SHIKAMARU (P1) VS. TEMARI (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    This battle is a bit harder than the other two you have fought. Temari is very
    skilled with her kunai and combos, and escaping could be hard. This is great
    practice for Kawarimi no Jutsu, which is activated by pressing Block when she
    is attacking you (or when you are attacking, to perform your all-sides attack).
    Don't bother with kunai against her, she'll just blow them back, focus on using
    your combos and hopefully getting a special or two in.
    
    She's weak underground, so try to pull her down there.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes. After them both, you begin the next Chuunin Exam fight.
    
    [--BATTLE 5 SASUKE (P1) VS. GAARA (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    This is extremely hard compared to the other battles, especially if you know
    how strong Gaara supposedly is based on the manga. Don't bother with kunai at
    all.
    
    This battle's intended to teach you how to break defenses, as Gaara defends
    literally all the time. He also uses his long-distance Sand attacks to deal you
    constant damage. I can't really give any advice other than to keep up a
    constant offense.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Your first chance to save! Go ahead and do it.
    
    More cutscenes, these ones are actually important as they tell the story.
    Basically, if you don't know the plot, Gaara runs off in the middle of his
    battle with Sasuke along with his brother and sister. Sasuke runs after them,
    and then Naruto and Shino begin running as well.
    
    A few cutscenes, then another battle starts.
    
    [--BATTLE 6 SASUKE (P1) VS. TEMARI (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Beat her in under 60 seconds
    
    ~Tips
    
    No kunai, she'll kill you by reflecting them back. Use combos, and keep using
    combos. NEVER let up, and you'll kill her rather quickly (23 seconds was my
    record).
    
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes.
    
    [--BATTLE 7 SHINO (P1) VS. KANKUROU (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    Shino's an interesting character. His bugs are homing kunai, and as such are
    extremely effective. He also has a mid-range attack to activate his Lvl. 3
    special, which is great. Kankurou is very, very simple- only problem is the
    poison bombs that his puppet Karasu enjoys throwing. Even if you do get
    poisoned, though, you can still win pretty easily.
    
    Use his kunai, use his combos, use his specials..it doesn't matter, Kankurou's
    pretty simple.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes. Important ones between Sarutobi and Orochimaru.
    
    [--BATTLE 8 SARUTOBI (P1) VS. OROCHIMARU 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Final blow must be a Lvl. 3 Special Attack
    
    ~Tips
    
    THIS BATTLE IS HARD. Seriously hard. I said the Temari one was hard...this one
    is ridiculous. Actually beating him isn't too terribly difficult (the third
    time around =P), but scoring a special attack on him is insanely hard.
    
    Luckily, the Special Attack in question is very powerful, and will kill him if
    his health bar is in the yellow area. No need to wait until he's already dead
    to hit him.
    
    Umm..only tip I can give is to try to knock him off the building as much as you 
    can- attacking while he's blocking works as well as attacking when he's open- 
    and when he's off the building, charge your Chakra. He Kawarimis a LOT and uses
    specials a LOT...luckily, if you hit random directions and O, Sarutobi will
    pull off a ton of awesome Jutsu.
    
    Don't bother with the other area of the stage at all.
    
    This battle's hard. I'd recommend changing down to Easy in the options menu
    after you try it a few times on Normal.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Awesome cutscene of Orochimaru being in pain. Sarutobi dies, and the next
    battle begins after another cutscene.
    
    [--BATTLE 9 NARUTO (P1) VS. GAARA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Enemy has increased Attack power
    
    ~Tips
    
    This battle is either easy or hard, depending on how much you have practiced.
    Compared to the battle before this one, this will be like fighting a baby- but
    if you only won the last one because of a fluke, you'll have incredible
    troubles.
    
    Try to score a Lvl 3 special, because that will put you into Kyuubi mode, which
    GREATLY increases your attack power. It's a luck battle, really.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    A cutscene happens, then another unskippable cutscene at Sarutobi's funeral.
    After that, you can save, then you have control again. 
    
    CHAPTER 2 THE SAN-NIN
    
    Talk to Lee. He's right in front of you. Accept his challenge.
    
    [--BATTLE 10 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. LEE (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Enemy's Attack is increased
    c. Enemy's Speed is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    This is really all about you. Lee's pretty simple, just beat him with whoever
    you like to use.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Konoha Senpuu is yours to equip! This is a useful taijutsu move.
    
    Go north and enter the stadium. Talk to Gai and Shikamaru. Accept their offers.
    
    [-MINIGAMES 2-3 IMITATION BATTLE!
    
    Controls: D-pad, /\, [ ], O, X
    
    Insturctions: Your opponent will make a bunch of funny positions, with commands
    appearing under them. It's then your turn to input the commands. Do so, and
    once you get to where you punch in 7 correct buttons, you win.
    
    Tips: Um, it's as simple as they come to do this. Players adept at Simon, 
    Bust-A-Move, or Narutimett Hero 1 will have this easy.
    
    MINIGAME END--]
    
    Play those as many times as you want, money = good.
    
    Go talk to Ino. Accept her offer.
    
    [--BATTLE 20 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. INO (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Must attempt an attack once every second.
    
    ~Tips
    
    Fight normally, but make sure you hit the [  ] button a lot. Make sure not a
    second goes by that you don't attack in some form- it doesn't have to hit her,
    you just have to attack.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congratulations, you know have Ino's 16-hit combo jutsu to put on a character.
    
    Go back to the Ramen area. Go to the east, then north. Talk to Lee. Accept.
    
    [--MINIGAME 4 LEE'S PUSH-UP CHALLENGE
    
    Controls: O
    
    Instructions: Mash O. You have ten seconds to do it more than Lee.
    
    Tips: Mash O. I randomly won, but I suck at mashing. Should be easy for you.
    
    MINIGAME END--]
    
    This is just practice for the real thing in Chapter 3. Get your laughs now.
    
    Go east one screen. Talk to Ino, then go a bit south of Sasuke until you see 
    something Naruto can examine. Talk to Ino again.
    
    Congratulations, you've gotten her flower poisoning jutsu.
    
    Go east one screen, then west one. Talk to Kakashi. Accept his offer.
    
    Go a bit to the right and examine the area where the wood building meets
    the boulder. Talk to Kakashi again.
    
    Congrats, you now have his 1000 Years of Pain jutsu.
    
    Talk to Hinata. Accept her offer. 
    
    You will need to retrieve 3 herbs for Hinata. The first one is located in 
    the right-most area from this screen; At the Hokage Mountain area, to the right,
    you'll see a pot. In it you will find the 2nd herb; then, go to Gate 44 and get 
    another herb from the grass. (Note- the Hinata thing is from Yukimura..I
    missed out on this and such had to copy from him. I'll take it down if you don't
    want it here, Yuki.)
    
    Go  back to the Ramen area and talk to Kakashi. Go west one screen. You should 
    end up outside the village gates. Talk to Jiraiya.
    
    A few cutscenes happen, and the hardest battle of the game occurs. Get ready!
    
    [--BATTLE 10 KAKASHI (P1) VS. ITACHI (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Enemy has increased Attack power. 
    c. Enemy has increased Defense power.
    
    ~Tips
    
    THIS BATTLE IS INSANELY HARD.
    
    It's extremely hard to get him even past half-health. The only advice I can give
    you is that Lvl. 3 specials are your friend here, as well as doing dash combos 
    when he's running towards you.
    
    Good luck.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    A small cutscene occurs, then a new battle comes up that is extremely easy in
    comparison to the last one.
    
    [--BATTLE 11 GAI (P1) VS. KISAME (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Enemy has increased Attack power.
    
    ~Tips
    
    Same thing as Itachi, only don't fret as much. Very easy battle.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes. Then, you're in a desert, seeing Naruto and Jiraiya talk. After
    they finish talking, you begin a fight.
    
    [--BATTLE 12 NARUTO (P1) VS. JIRAIYA (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Your life must be above 29% at the end of the battle.
    
    ~Tips
    
    If you need tips for this battle, you need to go practice a LOT more.
    Basically, just remember that kunai and special attacks are your friends.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes. You end up back at Konoha, and soon a fight starts. Another
    hard Itachi battle, but this one's a bit easier.
    
    [--BATTLE 13 SASUKE (P1) VS. ITACHI (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Make it through the timer without dying (40 seconds) 
    b. Player's life must be above 29% 
    c. Itachi has increased speed 
    d. Itachi has increased defense
    
    ~Tips
    
    Remember the move I mentioned in Controls to switch between parts of a stage?
    Yeah, it's your friend. Eventually, Itachi will get to you..Kawarimi out, run
    away, and start teleporting once more.
    
    Another method, discovered by my good friend Ryan, is to combo him, teleport
    and throw kunai, combo him, teleport and throw kunai, and repeat until time's
    up. It's a risky strategy, however.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes. Lots and lots of cutscenes. Battles start soon.
    
    NOTE. Battles 14 and 15 are "training battles", and come with little break
    between them. Since the first battle is good practice for the second, I'll put
    them both in one Battle Descriptor.
    
    [--BATTLES 14 & 15 NARUTO (P1) VS. JIRAIYA (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    BATTLE-14 
    a. Win 
    b. Life must be above 49% at the end 
    c. Your Chakra must be higher than Jiraiya's at the end
    
    BATTLE-15 
    a. Win 
    b. Life must be above 49% 
    c. Chakra must be full
    
    ~Tips
    
    Combo, combo, combo until you find an opening, then do a level 3 special
    attack. You're then in Kyuubi form for about 15 seconds (?). Beat on him. If
    you finish him off while in Kyuubi mode, your Chakra will be full and probably
    your life as well.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Cutscenes, save, and then you're back in control.
    
    Talk to the man to the east, talk to the man to the south, then go through the 
    north exit. Talk to him again. Then go back to the town, go south, and talk to 
    Tsunade. Some cutscenes follow, and then a battle.
    
    [--BATTLE 16 NARUTO (P1) VS. TSUNADE (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Tsunade has increased Attack power
    
    ~Tips
    
    She's hard. Your best bet is to land a special on her- I could only
    get a lvl 2 on, but it did plenty damage- and use Naruto's down-down-O jutsu,
    which she has a very strange weakness to. That attack is great for coming
    from above.
    
    good luck!
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Cutscenes! Whee! If you've read the manga, you know that this is an important
    story part. After the cutscenes, another battles starts.
    
    [--BATTLE 17 SHIZUNE (P1) VS. TSUNADE (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Survive through the battle (40 seconds)
    b. Tsunade's attack is increased
    c. Tsunade regenerates her health
    
    ~Tips
    
    Use Shizune's first special to start, then keep an offense up. Her down-down-O
    attack works wonders here. 40 seconds isn't long, this battle's cake.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Cutscenes. Next battle begins soon.
    
    [--BATTLE 18 JIRAIYA (P1) VS. SEALED OROCHIMARU (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    Sealed Orochimaru is a WIMP compared to Jiraiya. Go for a lvl 3 special early
    on and you have this battle made with his powered-up form.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    More cutscenes. Cool stuff happens, then a battle begins.
    
    [--BATTLE 19 NARUTO (P1) VS. KABUTO (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Final blow must be Level 3 special
    c. Kabuto's life regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    This battle's not hard, it's just ANNOYING. Kabuto blocks all the time and I
    know of no way to link 3rd-level specials into combos. The only trick I found
    was to get a 3rd special on him, beat him down to low-yellow as Kyuubi, and
    then charge up your chakra again and try to land a 3rd special.
    
    It's tedious, and the main problem is the timer. :/ Have fun.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Cutscene.
    
    [--BATTLE 20 TSUNADE (P1) VS. SEALED OROCHIMARU
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    Simple battle if you figure out the trick. You see, Tsunade's towards-O attack
    not only knocks your opponent clear across the field, but deals a ton of damage
    even if your opponent is blocking. Use that and her Lvl 2 special and you have
    this battle made.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congratulations, you've beaten half of the game! Wait for the long-ass credits
    to roll, save, and continue the game.
    
    CHAPTER 3 - GEDOU NO IN ~part one~
    
    Go east, then across the bridge. Talk to Shizune. Accept her offer,
    then go to the east, to the north, then to the west. Talk to the guy behind
    the stone. Buy the item. Go talk to Shizune again and you'll earn her very
    useful Tonton Tonton jutsu.
    
    If you have not gotten Hinata's three herbs (see chp. 2), get them now. They're
    there, Hinata is not. Just gather them.
    
    Go north and inside the Chuunin Exam Stadium. Talk to Lee on the far right end
    of the stadium. Win his push-up minigame (see chp. 2 for details).
    
    You now have his taijutsu combo equippable jutsu. Leave the stadium. Talk to
    Hinata's dad, accept his offer, and then talk to Hinata in front of the ramen 
    place.
    
    Now head west. First talk to the merchant
    and buy as many chakra restore items as you can, then leave Konoha. Choose the
    place with four kanji. Go to the swamp, go to the rightmost area, and talk to 
    Shizune. Accept her offer. Head to the ramen shop. Head east, across the bridge,
    then to the east. Pick up the thing above Shino. Go to the training area, (go 
    north) and talk to Gai. Accept his offer.
    
    Win the handstand race and a battle starts.

    b. 60 Second time limit
    c. Enemy's Speed is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Just beat him, by now you don't need specific tips for easy battles like this.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    You've unlocked Dynamic Entry, one of the most useful moves in the game. We're
    not done using Gai to unlock stuff, though. First, talk to Hinata. Then go to 
    the ramen place and talk to Gai. Go back to where you talked to Shizune. Buy the
    second item from the man standing to the left of the swamp entrance, then enter 
    the swamp. Talk to Shizune. A battle starts.
    
    [--BATTLE 22 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. SHIZUNE (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. You are poisoned
    c. Your health starts at 10%
    
    ~Tips
    
    eek! Hard fight! Choose Tsunade. Then just combo them a lot, healing by holding 
    up every chance you get. It also helps if you buy some explosive kunai and equip
    them in battle.
    
    Note: Poison will not kill you, but it will take you down to the point where you
    can be killed by one kunai.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congrats, you now have Shizune's poison breath jutsu. Head back to Konoha and
    talk to Gai. Accept his offer, then head back to the swamps where you just beat 
    Shizune. Win the poses minigame, then a fight starts.

    b. Perform 3 Kawarimi
    c. Gai's Speed is increased
    d. Gai's Attack is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    You know the drill..just beat him. Make sure you let him begin some comboes
    so that you can hit the Kawarimi requirement.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congratulations! You've unlocked the secret character Maito Suit Naruto for Vs.
    mode!
    
    Head back to the ramen place. Go north to the stadium. Save, then talk to either
    Neji or Hinata. MAKE SURE YOU BOUGHT CHAKRA ITEMS LIKE I TOLD YOU TO. If you
    did not, go buy some now (from the merchant outside Konoha's gates) and then
    come back here. Now, talk to either Neji or Hinata and then accept their offer.
    
    [--BATTLE 24 HINATA (P1) VS. NEJI (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Your chakra must be full at the end
    c. Neji must finish with no chakra
    d. Neji has Byakugan status
    
    ~Tips
    
    Ok. First things first: Land a second-level special~ so you're in Byakugan* too.
    Then beat him down, restoring your chakra every now and then if you go down. If 
    you hit him enough in Byakugan, he'll be out of Chakra. Make sure you don't let 
    him grab any orbs that appear when someone hits the ground.
    
    *If you do your third special and let him win on the first round, you will be in
    Byakugan, but this gives you less of an advantageous position.
    
    ~You may want to lose in the mashing; it won't kill him but will still give you
    Byakugan.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Win that tough battle and you unlock my personal favorite character as well as
    the second secret character, Successor Hinata.
    
    Ok. Everything we have done since the end of chapter 2 has been to get secret
    things, and we have gotten everything we can at this point. Time to start up
    the story again.
    
    Go to the training area and talk to Sakura. The next battle begins.
    
    [--BATTLE 25 NARUTO (P1) VS. SAKURA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win by Time Out
    b. Perform 6 Kawarimi
    c. Sakura's Speed is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Don't beat on her. Charge your chakra to lure her over then start kawariming
    when she hits you. 40 seconds is short, especally when facing Sakura and not 
    Itachi. Just get the 6 kawarimi out of the way and then make sure her health is
    lower than yours.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Wheee, we get to play as Kakashi! =D
    
    Head to the stadium. Talk to the two guys on the side of the path, then go one
    area to the east of the training area- to the spot with the big stone.
    
    Talk to gai, then enjoy the cutscene- or skip it with [START]. Either way,
    there's another cutscene and then you begin the next battle.
    
    [--BATTLE 26 KAKASHI (P1) VS. SEALED OROCHIMARU (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    
    ~Tips
    
    Anything goes, and that means super attacks. :)
    
    You can also do what I did and put Dynamic Entry on Kakashi before the battle
    and then spam that.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    If you didn't do it for the last battle, put Dynamic Entry on Kakashi if you
    want the next three battles to be easy as pie. Then head back to the entrance of
    the Chuunin Exam Stadium. Go into the elevator to the west and choose the top 
    option. Talk to Tsunade.
    
    Cutscenes. Two of them. Then you get to save. Then..there's another cutscene.
    
    Finally, the next battles start. The next three battles are all the same, just
    versus different people. As such, they are all in one Descriptor.

    a. Win
    b. You must use no special attacks
    c. Gai's Speed is increased
    d. Gai's Attack is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    No special attacks makes this a slightly tougher battle, but still easy. Work
    with Kakashi's jutsu- hopefully you put some good stuff on him.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Go east one screen. Walk across the logs and examine the body on the ground.
    Then go west, across the hotsprings bridge, across the other bridge, then 
    south. From the ramen place, go north and then get in the elevator. Choose the 
    2nd option.
    
    There's a cutscene, and then a fight.

    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. No Special Attacks
    c. Orochimaru's Attack is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Again, this relies on your jutsu. Use them wisely, and try to avoid taijutsu as
    Sealed Orochimaru is one of the best kawarimi-ers in the game.

    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Kabuto's health regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    You can use special attacks! Use Gai's 3rd special and Dynamic Entry and this
    battle's yours.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Watch the unskippable cutscene, then pat yourself on the back because you only
    have one more chapter to go until you're done- and if you followed/are following
    this guide, one chapter away from having every character. =)
    
    Save, and you have control of Naruto. That means- you guessed it- jutsu time!
    
    First, make sure you have 25000ryou. If you don't, play minigames until you do.
    Then go to the Hot Springs and talk to Tenten. Accept her offer, and then head
    to the ramen place. Leave Konoha, and choose the top option when you do. Go
    towards the swamp entrance and talk to the man to the left. Buy the top item.
    Head back to Konoha and talk to Tenten. You now have the incredibly useful
    ability to summon items in-battle.
    
    Leave through the exit to the west and go east across the bridge. Talk to 
    Hinata. If you got the herbs in Chapter 2, she gives you a jutsu. Before you
    leave, talk to Shizune.
    
    Now head back to the training area. Talk to Hinata. Accept her offer and a 
    battle begins.
    
    [--BATTLE 33 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. HINATA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Your chakra must be full at the end
    c. Your life must be greater than 80% at the end
    
    ~Tips
    
    Choose someone like Gai or Naruto whose third special gives them unlimited
    chakra and then beat her down.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    That's all we can get for now, so it's game time again. Head to the elevator 
    (west west north west) and choose the first option. Talk to Tsunade. When the
    conversation is over, go back to the ramen shop. Talk to Sakura, at the left 
    side of the screen. Leave (go west). Talk to Kakashi. A cutscene ensues (the
    5th Hokage is appointed! =D) and you're in control. Cutscene, then a fight.
    
    [--BATTLE 34 SHIZUNE (P1) VS. NARUTO (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Naruto's Attack is increased
    c. Naruto's Chakra regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    Assuming you didn't just give Shizune Dynamic Entry before the battle, Naruto
    has a real problem handling her Tonton Throw jutsu. Use that and then combo
    him...or just whore out Dynamic Entry. It's up to you. Her 2nd special is a
    great powerup, considering Shizune is EXTREMELY AND ANNOYINGLY SLOW.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Cutscene, and then you see Zabuza, Haku, and the 3rd revived...Orochimaru style.
    Save, then handle yo' biz'ness, son.
    
    (OHMIGAWD HAKU SQUEEEEEEEE)
    
    [--BATTLE 35 SASUKE (P1) VS. HAKU (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Haku's Speed is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Use Sasuke's 3rd special. Haku is a very agile character, so hitting him with
    anything that doesn't have a relatively good range is tough. Use that jutsu as
    best you can and beat on him when he slows down after attempting a combo.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    (Haku is now unlocked both in Vs. mode and Story mode.)
    
    After that battle, there's a cutscene, and then the blast from the past 
    continues with another.
    
    [--BATTLE 36 JIRAIYA (P1) VS. ZABUZA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Zabuza's Attack is increased
    c. Zabuza's Defense is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Zabuza has a very long range. As such, you need to stick with jutsu that keep 
    you sort of far away from him, such as Jiraiya's Hair jutsu or Kakashi's Dog
    Summoning. Pull a special if you'd like, it only helps.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    (Zabuza is now unlocked both in Vs. mode and Story mode.)
    
    Cutscene luv, and then Naruto's mad rampage continues.

    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Naruto's Attack is increased
    c. Naruto's Chakra regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    What is this, the Play As Crappy Characters chapter? Whatever, Sakura is very
    weak and as such I recommend pulling a 3rd special ASAP so you can be powered
    up. After that, it's a matter of your own style, Sakura is not a very unique
    character.
    
    BATTLE END--]

    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Kabuto's Health regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    Know how to item cancel? Good! (If you don't: shishi-rendan.com's NH2 video
    section will help you out) Use it on Kabuto to string into Neji's third special,
    which gives him a ton of power through Byakugan. From then on, it's easy stuff
    to beat Kabuto. If his health gets too high, use another special of any level.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Cutscene, then save. Another cutscene...battle!

    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Sarutobi's Attack is increased
    c. Sarutobi's Speed is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Tsunade's towards-O is indispensable here, as getting a distance between 
    Sarutobi and yourself is a good idea. Tsunade's dropkick is very effective and
    will damage him a LOT. Whatever you do, avoid her 3rd special: the resulting
    slowdown makes the battle a lot tougher than it should be.

    b. Final hit must be a level 3 special
    c. Enemy-Naruto's Attack is increased
    d. Enemy-Naruto's Chakra regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    Do what I recommend for all people you have to beat with a level three special:
    go up the ranks. Do a level 1 special, then a level 2 special, and finally,
    finish them off with a level 3. If you don't want to go the Special Attack
    route, you can fight a normal combo-and-jutsu battle, but Possesed!Naruto isn't
    one for a friendly tango.

    [--BATTLE 42 KYUUBI NARUTO (P1) VS. SEALED OROCHIMARU (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Orochimaru's Attack is increased
    c. Orochimaru's Speed is increased
    d. Orochimaru's Defense is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Not much of a strategy I can give here. By this point in the game, you know
    Naruto and you know Orochimaru. He's weak to jutsu, but strong in comboing and 
    escaping yours. Use everything you've learned over the course of the game and 
    this relatively hard battle will be yours.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Watch the long ending scene and credits, save, and boom! Back in control.
    You've got every character and the game is complete; however, you want those
    last few Jutsu, don'tcha? Yeah, I thought you did. Here we go!
    
    First off, head to the Training Area and talk to Tenten. Accept her offer and
    then poke around the area to find three items (to the left of the middle log, 
    behind the right log near the stake, to the left of the left log). When you 
    have all three, talk to her again, accept her offer, and you fight.
    
    [--BATTLE 43 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. TENTEN (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Health must be above 50% at the end
    c. Pick up 3 items from your assist
    
    ~Tips
    
    Um, pick whatever the fastest character you are good with is. Then win.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    You'll learn her Multiple Shuriken jutsu, which allows you to throw out a mass 
    of shuriken anytime you want. Next up is Chidori. Head over to the Hot Springs 
    and talk to Kakashi. Accept his offer, and a battle begins.
    
    [--BATTLE 44 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. KAKASHI (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Kakashi's Speed is increased
    c. Player's Speed is decreased
    
    ~Tips
    
    We. Make. Holes In Teeth.
    
    <_<
    
    um, yeah. anyway, powered up Kakashi can be hard to hit and he likes to use
    1000 Years of Pain. Use someone fast and with a counter, like Haku or Kankurou.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Yay, you've got Chidori..or Wakaki Ikazuchi, as the game calls it. This move
    can be nasty if a good player uses it.
    
    Next up is Sarutobi's upgraded Katon Goukakyuu no Jutsu. Head to the Hokage
    mountain (go to ramen shop, north, then into elevator and pick first option)
    and talk to Sarutobi, who's supposed to be dead. Anyway, talk to him and
    a fight starts.
    
    [--BATTLE 45 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. SARUTOBI (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. You start with no Chakra
    c. You must finish with full Chakra
    
    ~Tips
    
    Still got some items left over from the Hinata vs. Neji battle? Good. If you
    don't, go get some. Then just beat him down and at the very end use an item if
    your chakra isn't full anyway.
    
    You could also use someone like Gai or Naruto whose 3rd special leaves them
    with full chakra, use the 3rd special, and beat him in your powered-up state.
    Note that if your final hit is a 3rd special, you will NOT get the chakra
    effect.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    One more!
    
    [--BATTLE 46 PLAYER CHOICE VS. SARUTOBI (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Do 3 Kawarimi
    c. Finish with more than 80% Health
    
    ~Tips
    
    Use someone who can combo lots and combo weakly against him so you can start
    a Kawarimi string. 3 isn't much.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    You now have an upgraded Katon Goukakyuu no Jutsu! Ditch Sasuke's crappy one.
    
    Next, head to the Hot Springs and go west. Talk to Kakashi and accept his offer
    to begin a battle.
    
    [--BATTLE 47 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. KAKASHI (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Kakashi's Speed is increased
    c. Kakashi's Attack is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Make up for the Speed loss by chooosing someone speedy. Then just beat him using
    jutsu because all the cool kids are doing it.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    You then get Sasuke's (o.0?) Air Combo.
    
    Leave Konoha. Talk to Shikamaru. Accept his offer, go back to Gate 44 (to the
    east of the hot springs) and talk to Ino's dad. Run back to the gate and talk
    to Shikamaru again. You get 50,000-ryou! Don'tcha feel special?
    
    Now leave and choose the third option. Go to the east, and talk to Kabuto. Leave
    the woods and go right back in and talk to Kabuto again. Now he wants to fight.
    Accept his offer, and...
    
    [--BATTLE 48 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. KABUTO (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Kabuto's Health regenerates
    
    ~Tips
    
    Level 3 specials are ALWAYS your friend on Health-Regen!Kabuto. Use someone with
    a powerup effect on the 3rd special (i.e. just about anyone) and then beat him.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congrats, you get his Chainsaw jutsu that slows your opponent down and is
    generally cheap. Head to the west and leave. Choose the 3rd option.
    
    Go north. Talk to Jiraiya and accept his offer to begin a battle.
    
    [--BATTLE 49 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. JIRAIYA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Jiraiya's Attack is increased
    c. Perform 3 Kawarimi
    
    ~Tips
    
    Choose someone powerful and with a long range, like Gaara or Zabuza. Then let
    him have the honor of attacking you so you can get the Kawarimi out of the way.
    Attack, rinse, and repeat until victory.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    and again!
    
    [--BATTLE 50 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. JIRAIYA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. 60 Second time limit
    c. Perform 3 Kawarimi
    d. Perform 3 Oi Uchi
    
    ~Tips
    
    Use someone quick. Then go up to him, throw, and keep holding back as you mash
    O. Do this three times. Then let him combo you so you can kawarimi, and then
    when you have met conditions C and D, beat him normally.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Now you can summon frogs! Yaaaaaaaaaay!
    
    Leave the swamp, then go back in. Talk to Orochimaru. Accept his offer.
    
    [--BATTLE 51 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. SEALED OROCHIMARU (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Low Gravity
    c. Orochiamaru must not perform a special attack
    d. Final hit must be a throw
    
    ~Tips
    
    Whoever you used to beat Jiraiya, use them. The throws are integral. I recommend
    pulling a 3rd special, beating him down, and then comboing into a throw.
    
    The hardest part is condition D and you might have to do it multiple times.
    Just keep trying - the jutsu is worth it.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congrats, you get Orochimaru's sword stab jutsu.
    
    Leave the city. Choose the top option. Go east twice and look on the wooden wall
    for an item. Pick it up and head out of Konoha, choosing the top option. Talk
    to Tsunade and accept her offer. Play slots until you get about 2700 coins,
    and then talk to her to receive her drop kick jutsu. Leave, choose the top
    option.
    
    Talk to Tsunade by the ramen shop. Accept her offer, then leave Konoha. Choose
    the second option. Talk to the man on the path and buy the item from him, then
    go back to Konoha and talk to Tsunade. You get her slot machine jutsu!
    
    Now head up to the elevator area. Examine the fence behind Chouji. Leave Konoha
    and choose the third option. Make sure you have 150,000-ryou. Talk to Zabuza.
    Accept his offer and you begin a fight.
    
    [--BATTLE 52 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. ZABUZA (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Stand on the water for a total 60 seconds
    
    ~Tips
    
    Just...stand there. Dodge, don't attack, as best you can. The game alerts you
    when you've been there 60 seconds so just stand there until then. Beat on him
    a little - use jutsu like Chidori - to get him to fall in the water so you get
    some free seconds.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    You get Zabuza's Water Prison jutsu!
    
    Now, go get money until you have at least 160,000. I recommend going to Konoha,
    going as far east as you can, and doing Sakura's tree climbing minigame a lot.
    Then come back here and go east into the forest. Talk to Zabuza. Accept his 
    offer and fork over 10000-ryou.
    
    [--BATTLE 53 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. ZABUZA (COM)

    ~Tips
    
    Melee is good, and Lee and Gai are good.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Now go to the west and talk to Kisame. Prepare yourself for the hardest battle
    in the entire game.
    
    [--BATTLE 55 PLAYER CHOICE (P1) VS. KISAME (COM)
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Perform 3 Cancel Hits
    c. Kisame is powered up
    
    ~Tips
    
    The only move you can time a cancel with is when he pulls his arm back. Hit him
    as the sword comes around..if there's a flash and both characters leap back,
    you did a cancel hit. It's hard as hell. Have fun!
    
    BATTLE END..HOPEFULLY--]
    
    If you survived that, you learn how to throw sharks at people. Yay!
    
    Now go back to Konoha. Head into the elevator and choose the second option. Talk
    to Tenten and then go to the left. Itachi's there, yay. Talk to him to start a 
    hard battle. BUT FIRST. Go to the gate and buy a ton of explosive kunai.

    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win
    b. Itachi's Attack is increased
    c. Itachi's Defense is increased
    d. Your life must be above 80% at the end
    
    ~Tips
    
    Choose Itachi. Equip 9 Explosive Kunai. Use them until you can pull a level 2
    special. In Tsukiyomi, he's dead.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Congrats. You have Itachi's two jutsu.
    
    That's all the equippable jutsu. Some people say there are 3 more; however,
    neither Sarutobi or Temari will show up for me, so I have to doubt they're
    there. If you think I am doing something wrong, please IM me - I'd like those
    jutsu.
    
    END WALKTHROUGH. CONGRATULATIONS!

    [--Ninja Missions--]
    
    The Ninja Missions are optional things you can do when you're bored and you have
    control of Naruto in Story Mode.
    
    They don't have much of a purpose besides providing practice opportunities that
    result in experience and money. You can usually use any character for any 
    mission, but some have forced character selection. The missions get gradually 
    harder, with D missions being the easiest and S missions being the hardest. Once
    you have completed all the missions you can still get money and experience by 
    using the Mission Creator.
    
    Press /\ to activate the Story Mode Menu, and choose the Ninja Missions option
    from there.

    CHARACTERS COMPLETE

    [--Items--]
    
    Coming soon.
    
    {Section-N8} 
    [--Assist System--]
    
    The Assist system is a nice little innovation that the creators of Narutimett
    Hero 2 put in to help in Vs. Mode Battles.
    
    Basically, after you choose your main character you choose your support
    character. This support character will show up in battle and give you (or your
    opponent, if they get there first!) items, including the special Handshake item
    (see section N7) that allows you to have your support character attack your
    opponent (or heal you, in some cases).
    
    Any character can have any other character as a Support character. Some
    characters have unique supports that no other character can use.
    
    To have a character get a support character, have the two battle in Vs. Mode.
    After every battle, they will get a "friendship point" and after they get three
    friendship points will be able to choose each other for help in battles.
    
    For example, me and my friend Ryan had Gai vs. Sasuke. We had a series of 4
    battles. After the third, we were able to choose each other as our support
    character.
    
    Support characters ALWAYS show up on a different Area of the stage you're
    fighting on. Try to get to them before your opponent- if your opponent hits
    them, they'll disappear alongside their item! On the other hand, watch out when
    you go to get the item, as your opponent can grab it after you've gotten your
    support to drop the item.
    
    This includes Handshake items- however, their Handshake will activate their
    support and not yours.
    
    The unique characters are as follows.
    
    Iruka | Usable by Naruto, Kyuubi Naruto, Kakashi, ANBU Kakashi, The 3rd Hokage
    Asuma | Usable by Shikamaru, Chouji, Ino, ANBU Kakashi. 
    Nadare | Usable by Doutou 
    Kidoumaru | Usable by Orochimaru 
    Jiroubou | Usable by Orochimaru 
    Tayuya | Usable by Orochimaru 
    Sakon | Usable by Orochimaru
    
    I won't go into detail here about what each character's specific assist is-
    there's already a FANTASTIC guide for that on GameFAQs written by Cosmos. Check
    it out if you want more detail.

    -Secret Characters (not unlocked by beating Story Mode)
    
    Maito Suit Naruto--After Story Arc 2--
    
    Speak with Gai in front of Ichiraku Ramen. Head to Tanzakugai and go to the
    swamp entrance. Talk to the man on the left and buy a Maito suit. Go back to
    Konoha and Ichiraku Ramen and talk to Gai again. When options come up, select
    Hai. Go back to Tanzakugai, go to the Swamp Plains, and talk to Gai. Beat him
    in a handstand race, then win the fight.
    
    [--BATTLE Z NARUTO (P1) VS. GAI (COM) 
    ~Conditions
    
    a. Win 
    b. Perform Kawarimi no Jutsu 3 times 
    c. Gai's Speed is increased 
    d. Gai's Attack is increased
    
    ~Tips
    
    Let him attack you, get into a Kawarimi string, and after the third one, start
    Special Attacking the crap out of him. Pretty simple battle.
    
    BATTLE END--]
    
    Win that battle and you'll unlock Maito Suit Naruto.
    
    Successor Hinata--After Story Arc 2 (?)--
