Sengoku Basara (Addendum Guide)

A Must Read:
------------
  The F.A.Q's name should be self-explanatory now (see Table of Contents). It
is the same old Boss F.A.Q. except I changed the name because of the added/new
content. Ahem, and because of the repeated questions. And yes, everything is 
STILL based on Extreme Mode. I do not have time to do baby steps on either 
Normal or Hard Mode. Extreme Mode itself is not that good. So if anybody has 
anything to add, please do so. Otherwise... do not bother.

  Strategies, corrections, notes, or anything to help to make the F.A.Q. better
for the gamers, you are welcome. Other than that, sit back and enjoy life...

  Be a "gentleman/lady" if you have anything to say or Mr. Geese Howard will 
get mad and perform "Hishou Nichirin Zan." Now we do not want him to do that,
do we? ^_^

  That's about it. ^_^

  I have made a lot of corrections and just made the whole Item List easier to 
understand and read. 

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

-----------------------
3. Ultimate Characters:
-----------------------
  The is mainly after you get everything to make your characters untouchable in
any stage on Extreme Mode. The characters will be pretty much invincible (as in 
they will go through each mode without having troubles) except for "maybe" 
Itsuki since MANY cannot play well without the hammer (the opinion differs). 
But to me, she is much better than with the hammer.

  I moved it from the Questions & Answers to here to make the people notice it:

  That's about it. 

  Ranmaru's/Yukimura's skills are all good. Use any if you like. Itsuki without
the hammer needs a good player to handle her. Which means you have to think a
bit and be more careful, but more rewarding. If you cannot adapt, use the fifth
weapon. 

  Last, I did not recommend most of the sixth weapons because I am not
really into joke weapons even if they have better stats. The only worthy two
are Yukimura's and Masamune's because they keep the elements and look amazing.
Moreover, I kept Itsuki's sixth weapon because of the stats only since I use 
the item to get rid of the hammer. The others are for a few seconds and then 
back to the more serious looking weapons. Mitsuhide keeps the dark element as 
well, but a K&F?! No sir, thank you!

4. Bosses:

  Now how to fight each boss... let us start with Tadakatsu:

"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  This is Extreme Mode. Remember that. 

 ______________________________________________________________
|                                                              |
|  Tadakatsu is an optional boss. You can avoid fighting him.  |
|______________________________________________________________|

  Tadakatsu is very basic if you try to understand his strategy. He tries to go
after you and when you are within his range, he attacks. Most of the time 
two-three hits and if you avoid, he back steps. 

  When his life bar goes a bit low (right when you hit him), the power up will
automatically be activated. His attacks will double and he will sometimes
change into defense mode then attack. He will try to follow up his attacks more
frequently. 

  He has some odds there like blocking your attacks sometimes or jumping when 
you do not follow up. But most of the time will back step. The most well-known 
victory is to equip the unlimited Basara items (R20C2-4) and abuse your Basara 
attack. But, the luck to get the items is completely RANDOM. I managed to get 
the items WAY after I finished unlocking everything and my friend got them a 
bit earlier, so I will stick to the "how to defeat him without unlimited Basara 
items."

  I will make the stategies as simple as possible to finish off everything fast
and to not get bored.

|  - War Dance (fourth skill)                                                 |
|  - Have the item to always hold six katanas (R10C1)                         |
|  - Magnum Step (first skill)                                                |

|  Corner yourself and wait for him to approach. When he does, corner him     |
|  instead and hit the square button until he goes down. If you screw up,     |
|  he will try to back step, perform Magnum Step and repeat what I said.      |
|  Or if you screw up really bad, do your Basara attack then get near him     |
|  and hit the square button repeatedly.                                      |
|                                                                             |

|  Activate War Dance skill and then do your square combo four times and then |
|  he will go down.                                                           |
|                                                                             |

|                               Sanada Yukimura                               |
|                               ----------------                              |
|                                                                             |

|  The first strategy is to memorize the timing to the last skill to make     |
|  Yukimura spin until Tadakatsu goes down. If you screw up, perform your     |
|  Basara attack and repeat.                                                  |
|                                                                             |
|  The second strategy is to stay close to Shingen and let Tadakatsu approach |
|  you and then let Shingen help attacking him. Hit the square button twice   |
|  and then cancel to his first skill. If you screw up retreat or Basara      |
|  attack and attack again. Try to cancel when Shingen begins attacking...    |
|  not ending.                                                                |
|                                                                             |
|                                                                             |
|    4x Attack up items (PLUS, 99 weapons, max level 20 and 2 Basara Bars)    |

|  Hit square three times, then cancel to first skill then cancel to his      |
|  Basara Attack right before the last strike. Then repeat it.                |
|                                                                             |

|  - Basara exchange item (R18C1)                                             |
|                                                                             |
|  You cannot possibly lose here even if you do not have any item. Nouhime    |
|  and Ranmaru will be a pain to Tadakatsu. So it is three on one fight.      |
|                                                                             |
|  Start taking some souls and then fight him. Let them group on him and then |
|  join the club. Hit the square four times then stop and continue. Do not    |
|  stop when your Ranmaru and Nouhime are not attacking. If you screw up, hit |
|  the circle button to do Basara attack in exchange to some of your life     |
|  bar. Or use the shotgun. Easy battle.                                      |
|                                                                             |
|  Nobunaga owns him for free.                                                |
|                                                                             |
|                                                                             |

|  First perform your fourth skill and kill four enemies to strengthen your   |
|  attack damage EVEN MORE (the best part). Then face Tadakatsu. Do your      |
|  square combo and then cancel to your Basara Attack right before the last   |
|  strike. Then do three square hits and perform your Basara Attack once      |
|  again. Good night to poor Tadakatsu.                                       |

|                                                                             |
|  Do your combo and cancel to sweep. When Tadakatsu back step, sweep. And    |
|  keep doing until he goes down. If he manages to hit you five times to get  |
|  rid of the protection, do protection again. You will have another Basara   |
|  refilled. That is the beauty of the weapon, items and skill.               |
|                                                                             |

|  Zabii is the easiest to finish off Tadakatsu.                              |
|                                                                             |
|  Just cast protection (SM) and wait in a good corner. When Tadakatsu        |
|  approaches you, corner him instead. Then spam your cannons until Tadakatsu |
|  goes down.                                                                 |
|                                                                             |
|  The cannons do multiple hits. Even if you screw up, you have protection    |
|  on. That means you're invincible until he hits you five times to get rid   |
|  of it. By the time he does that, you will have another full Basara to cast |
|  protection again.                                                          |
|                                                                             |
|  Anyway, you will not screw up as long as you keep hitting him with the     |
|  cannons/bazookas repeatedly. Easy to reach 999 hit combo. Tadakatsu will   |

|  If you screw up, Basara attack. Do two hits and cancel to the skill if you |

"Misete yaru ze! SHOWTIME!" 

  From now on you do almost as what you did with Tadakatsu, I will not repeat.
I will only mention the most important things.

  Masamune is very basic. When he poses, be sure to not let him power up. Hit
him.

  He most of the time runs and when he approaches you, he side steps or 
back steps. When he does two or three hits, that means he will do Magnum Step 
after them. When he power ups, he does some slashes and when you are a bit
far, he will perform Magnum Step. 

  When you do a combo or Basara attack (depends on the character), he jumps and 
triangel button. Nothing much. I find him one of the weakest bosses. 

  Masamune's army is the strongest in the game (Extreme Mode)... only second to
Kenshin's.

"Oyakatasama, mitete kuraiyo!"

  Yukimura is one of the great bosses who you will have fun fighting. He has 
the best pre-fighting intro in the game (right when you are about to fight 
him).

  Yukimura tends to power up and side step a lot. Just do not let him power up.
His attacks will get powered once his life bar gets low. 

  His attacks hurt. Just be sure to have the recovery item. Or you can go get 
some recovery boxes and get back to him.

"SHOSHI!" 

  Nobunaga is good due to the fact that once you get to him, you cannot get 
out. You must finish him off.

  This fella does not like to stay still at all. He side steps, jumps and 
attacks no matter what. His attacks hurt like hell if you do not block. Even
his shotgun.

  Always be prepared before facing him. Hit twice then be ready to follow him 
when he side steps. Then repeat. Do not let him get far... never do that
unless your character is a long range character type or has something to abuse
from a distance.

"Konna mono de...!"

  Kenshin is a bit hard if you attack mindlessly. His fifth weapon has ice
element. Also, his first skill cancels mostly anything you do. 

  He even becomes better after his life bar gets low. His attacks double and he
will abuse his first skill. He does not abuse the power up like the others as 
long as you are not running away. 

  Nothing much if you know how to beat Tadakatsu. If he does his four/five hit 
combo and you do not block, say good night to your character.

  Kenshin's first stage is one of the BEST stages in the game. So relaxing. 
Plus, it is the strongest army in the game since it is full of Ninja Masters 
if you play Extreme Mode.

"DOUSHITA! Jama da!"

  Nouhime abuses her normal gun attack and gatling gun. Not to mention she 
likes to side step and when she gets her Atk up, you will just say ouch. 

  The trick is not to let her get far no matter what. DO NOT give her your back
even if you are about to die. BLOCK if you are confused and you will do just
fine. 

  Her HP blows and you can do heavy damage to her easily.

"KURAEEEEEEEEE!!!" 

  Awesome voice acting. ^_^

  Shingen is all about charging to spin or hit when you are up close. 

  He is really heavy. The CPU sucks... does not really know how to use him. 
This is to your advantage of course. Knock him out with the element weapons.
He will go down pretty fast. 

  Even if you screw up, you can go back and recover and then return. As I said,
pretty heavy (as in slow).

"Hora hora! Nigen nae yo! Hah, hah, hah!" ^_^

  Ranmaru is about the same as Nouhime. Except Nouhime has a bit more life bar,
he likes to jump a lot and back step. 

  Ranmaru is like a monkey (no offense), he moves around a lot. Be ready to use
your camera buttons a lot, unless you intend to corner him... he will have no
where to go but will try to get out.

"MINNA! Ganbare nakutcha!"

  Itsuki takes sometime to go down due to the fact that most of the attacks do
not reach her well. Even if they do, she will side step most of the time. 

  She is easy but just way to short. She likes to throw her hammer when you get
a bit far... and when she does that either do a move that will 100% hit her out
of her combo or run away. Wait for the recovery time then hit back. 

  It is hard to kick her when she throws her hammer and starts doing her combo.
And I mean close range. If she manages to get you with it, leave the 
controller. You will die, especially if she powered up.

  Itsuki's army is the weakest in the game. Heh... what do you expect from
peasants?

"Yare yare... zama nayna!"

  There are two stages that you will face Sasuke in. He performs the two
attacking clones (something like Kage Bunshin no Jutsu) in one of them. Also,
he makes everything foggy in that stage. 

  That Sasuke is the one who you should take good care of. The other one is 
quite normal. 

  Let them group on you, then do your Basara attack. The clones will take more
damage. If you do not have enough Basara, hit some soldiers around then kick
him. 

  Sasuke LOVES to jump a lot, so be prepared to knock him out whenever he does
that.

"SHINIII!! Heh-heh... hah-hah... HAHAEHAHAEHAAHAAH!!" (evil/psychotic laughter)

  This fella makes your blood boil when he starts talking while you kick him.
Mitsuhide is just one pure freak (unlike the one in Onimusha). ^_^ 

  His attacks are no problem. You only have to worry about one thing, and that
is his protection. Be prepared to do something to hit him five times to wear it
off (Basara). 

  Mitsuhide's side steps are laughable and he is slow in movement... but can do
quite some damage if you fight carelessly. He is a close range character, so 
you might want to abuse long range skills. 

  Nothing is more funnier than listening to Nobunaga and Mitsuhide laughing 
and insulting each other. Way too good hear (Mitsuhide's second stage... after
betrayal).

  Pure evil...

"Shin Batsudesu!"

  Zabii is just like Mitsuhide, except Zabii does not use his protection. Also,
Zabii is the third character who you will be forced to face without going out.

  Zabii also has clones, but his clones are pathetic and you can finish them
off so fast. Plus, when they go down you will be able to get a big recovery
item. Nice!

  The place also has many soliders around... this is good to fill your Basara 
so fast. When Zabii does his flying skill, run and when he approaches you, side 
step and then punish. Capcom did not think of the Camera problems, so if you 
did not see it coming try to hear him screaming. If he screams "OOOSHAAA" then
that means he performed the skill... keep running until he falls. 

  Do not worry about his bazookas... he will not use his first skill that much.
Maybe you will screw up if you do not stop laughing. ^_~

  Zabii has the best/funniest winning pose in the game. No question about it.

"Rakshu rakshuuuu.... YAHA, HAH, HAAAAH!"

  Whenever you get far, he will always perform his fifth skill but will not 
charge. Nice, eh? It will still do some good damage, so do not be. 

  All you have to do is get near him and he will do his first skill. Side step 
then do whatever on your mind. He DOES NOT sweep, so do not worry about his 
huge weapon (be it a sword or an axe).

"Hara heta!" :(

  Toshiie is the only one who does not get the automatically power up after his
life bar goes down. At least it did not in my game. BUT, he will get it from 
the start if he and Matsu reunite. Be sure to not let them do so. 

  So, to make a long story short, the fella cannot dish out good damage. He can
still power up (when he poses), but you can easily attack him to not let him
power up. 

  Do not worry about his fire element weapon. It is all show.

"Toshiie-samaaaaaaa!!!"

  Matsu fights "a bit" like Kenshin except has a lower life bar and abuses 
eagle move (if you get far). 

  Moreover, she has a move that you cannot use. She can eat rice to recover her
life bar. But that happens by a long shot. You can easily not let her do that 
by attacking her. 

  Do not let her meet Toshiie. Always be careful not to get hit by her ice
element weapon, especially when she performs power up to strengthen her 
attacks. She gets Atk-up right from the starts if she and Toshiie reunite.

  She is weak. That is why the Ninjas protect her. 

  Just get rid of them and then fight her. She will try to jump a lot and use 
her clone attack. Evade and keep attacking to prevent her from doing anything. 

  If you do not like the place, let her follow you by running away "slowly."

"HA-HA, HAH! Tadakatsu, suyosugi daiyo!" (saikyo)

  I expected Tokugawa to look better than this shorty. ^_^

  Fighting him "alone" is easy to do, but if you ignored fighting Tadakatsu,
he will join the fight. So you will make it a bit hard for you. 

  Tokugawa does not have anything special. His weapon has thunder element and 
when he power ups, do not let him hit you. His attacks hurt like hell. 

  He is shorty, so he will try to evade and block a lot. You just need to 
follow him and keep attacking. 

  Most of Okawa fans (V.A.) will like this character. Just because of the 
voice actor... not really because of the character. I know I do! ^_~ Also, 
you will notice many characters know this stage (Mikatagahara) very well. 
And I mean that it has Tokugawa and Tadakatsu. You will notice it once the
battle begins and then they will express what they have (this is where Shingen 
and Tokugawa had their showdown).

"Sasa ta kiagare!" >:)

  I still have NO IDEA why this character is one of the NPCs!

  Motochika is just like Nobunaga. When you reach him, you will have to fight
him one on one and cannot get out to recover. 

  He fights about the same as Kenshin (not skills, if you thought so)... except
he says many cool things during the fight. You will enjoy fighting him. Just
fight him the way you did with Kenshin.

"EH! EH-HEH! Dame ja korya!!"

  Just like Tokugawa, this old geezer likes to evade a lot. All you have to do
is keep following and attacking. Ujimasa is a big coward, you can notice that
by his quotes. 

  He will not be a big threat no matter how you fight him. Everything about him
blows. In fact, I think this character is the only character who has no style,
flash or even substance. Best thing is the BGM, Riding High... best BGM in the
game. ^_^

"Kiyouku tsukiru madde tattakte marou!"

  Motonari... Motonari.

  A close range character. He likes to power up a lot. Even when he gets the 
automatically power up, he will try to triple it. 

  Good that you fight in a very wide area. If you screw up, go find recovery
items and then go back to fight him. If you see him dancing with his flame 
skill, evade. 

  Another cool NPC.

"One gai...TASKETE!"

  I think you will mute your TV before fighting this fella. He is a big coward.
He screams a lot. Even the way he talks is funny, but some see it retarded. 

  Yoshimoto uses fans. A very close range character. Also does a flame skill
like Motonari. The best thing about his stage is, it is full of soldiers. 
So, thrash them to get full Basara and then use it to get rid of Yoshimoto. 

  This stage has the most archors than in any stage (hint: Hello, my lovely 
ride. What are you doing there so scared and alone?!). Try to memorize where
they appear to avoid or kill them fast.

  Yoshimoto is a coward, yes... but having him as a playable character is not a
bad idea, eh Capcom?

5. Minna Daisuki Honda Tadakatsu:
---------------------------------
  In case you did not notice, here are the best times for defeating Tadakatsu. 
This is just a simple thing to show you, when you have a strategy set, you will
own him for free even with the worst weapons (and of course on Extreme Mode). 

  The following times were scored with the help of the 4x damage items 
(R11C2-R11C4), max level for each character (20), max level for each best 
weapon (99) and max Basara (2).

6. Boss & Character Performance:
--------------------------------
  I will split it into two parts, part 1, Bosses and part 2, Characters. part 1
to know how powerful and good each boss can be. Part 2 to know how effective 
each character against all the bosses (on Extreme Mode, of course). Further 
explanation will be below each part.

Explanation
+++++++++++
Top bosses: Yukimura is equipped with the best two skills he has. The CPU uses
            him pretty well and when he gets powered up, he will do HEAVY 
            damage even if you are at level 20. Yukimura abuses his skills at 
            right moment.

            Nobunaga is like Yukimura except that you will be forced to fight
            him in a closed area. PLUS, the place has a roof which means some
            skills do not work well in that place (i.e. Tadakatsu's third 
            skill). Moreover, he moves around a lot and uses the meanest combos
            to damage your character heavily. His Shotgun is not for show, he 
            uses whenever you are within his range or even afar.  

High bosses: Tadakatsu is high "ONLY" because of the high stats, but not 
             because he is any good. If he had the same stats like the other
             bosses, I would have placed him as one of the weakest bosses in
             the game. Tadakatsu's main weak point is, he does not fall unless
             eliminated. So all your sweet LONG combos work wonders on him. 

             Kenshin abuses his God Slash skill like there is no tomorrow. And
             the skill has "very high priority." The skill hurts like hell and 
             so fast that you are left with defending with some characters. 
             Also his tactic is very good. With Kenshin, you have to defend to 
             punish, otherwise you will be heavily punished. 

             Sasuke (when he performs Kage Bunshin no Jutsu), you have to get
             rid of his clones to take care of Sasuke, because they will go 
             after you and keep attacking constantly. They jump and mass attack
             like crazy, but their HP is lower than Sasuke. Taking on the three
             of them is a bit tiring to some characters.

             Tokugawa is actually mid, but the fact that he is high is because
             if you ignore fighting Tadakatsu, he will join the fight... thus,
             you will make it hard for you. Other than that Tokugawa is pretty
             basic, but he side steps and defends a lot.

             Itsuki is high because it could take a while to finish her off. 
             Her HP is not that high, but she is so short that some skills and
             normal attacks HARDLY touch her. And she throws her hammer a lot
             to abuse her powerful combo. She does not stay still at all which
             makes the fight even more boring... ahem... longer. ^_^

             Mitsuhide does heavy damage and ABUSES his protection skill. With 
             him, it is a mistake to run away. You must always maintain at 
             close range combats. To make a long story short, he is equipped 
             with the best two skills he has.

Mid bosses: Nouhime is pretty good and she can do heavy damage, but her HP 
            blows and she takes damage so easily. Also, she does not use her
            skills well.  

            Shingen would have been high if he was used well by the stupid A.I.
            He has everything to blow you away, but to your advantage, th CPU
            sucks with him BIG TIME. 

            Ranmaru moves around A LOT... but his HP is laughable and he can be
            punished easily if you know how to dodge his attacks. 

            Matsu is okay due to her love bird. He likes to cover her mistakes 
            whenever you intend to punish her. Also, she recovers her HP when
            she gets far from you. 

            Motochika is like Kenshin and Nobunaga together except he does not
            have the right tools to be as good as they are. 

            Motonari likes to power up a lot and even likes to triple it when 
            he gets the automatically power up. He is a very close range 
            character that is why he is an okay boss.

            Yoshimoto is exactly like Motonari. 

            Zabii is mid due to the MANY enemies in his stage. They even 
            respawn if you do not kill the guys with the horn trumpet. So you
            can fill your Basara Bar everytime you want to punish Zabii. And
            he is not equipped right.

            Kasuga jumps, powers up... moves around a lot... but goes down like
            a fly. What makes her mid is the fact that many Ninja Masters are 
            around her and she abuses her sixth skill.

            Sasuke (alone) is pretty basic and like his clone, Kasuga. But, 
            Sasuke is a bit easier.
 
Low bosses: Masamune is easy to read. You can read him like an open book. You
            cannot lose here even if you were not that focused. He is a main
            target to get EXP.

            Ujimasa is weak no matter how careless you can get. He can hardly
            touch you if you are any good.

            Yoshihiro is exactly like Masamune. Moreover, he is easy to punish.
            His combo and two skills have start-up and recovery time.  

            Toshiie should be mid, but he is not equipped with the right 
            skills. His tactic blows and the A.I. is very bad with him.

Explanation
+++++++++++
Top characters: Zabii is the safest character in the game with no question 
                asked. He puts most of the cast to shame with his skills, 
                strategies and keep away tactics. Zabii can EASILY get perfects
                on ALL the bosses in the game. His stats are very good and
                his attack power can get to max. He has the lowest Basara Bar
                so he can fill it up so easily. He has the best skill in the 
                game which is protection. So, he can equip the items to make
                him do 4x on his opponents. That just makes him from good to
                super good. Hell, he can finish off Tadakatsu within "SIX 
                SECONDS." That is 6 secs. ladies and gentlemen. No one can 
                do that except... ZABBI, ZABBI, ZABBI, ZABBI, ZABBI, ZABBI,
                ZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBI! ^_^

                Mitsuhide is like Zabii except he is a close range character
                and his stats are a bit different. You do not even have to 
                worry about the dark element since your HP will get drained
                because of the 4x damage items. You will have the best skill
                which is protection and you will just laugh as much as you 
                want. The 2 Basara Bar level makes you much better with the 
                skill. And his Basara Attack will be much better since you have
                the items to strengthen your attacks. And because he starts 
                with the Basara slowly (attacking). That is always a plus in my
                book.

                Sasuke in one of the top because of how fast and effective
                he can be when you master his skills and especially his counter
                skill. Also, his Basara Attack is the best and most effective
                one in the game with no question asked. He is that good 
                against bosses. He finishes the stages so fast.
                
                Kasuga is exactly like Sasuke. Nothing is different at all.

High characters: Masamune becomes a monster later on when he gets the item to
                 make him use all his katanas. And he keeps the element on his
                 sixth weapon. Why he is not one of the top characters is 
                 because you will not be able to defend or use side steps and
                 you will eat damage easily. When you fight someone as fast as
                 Kenshin, you will think of defending a lot. 

                 Yukimura is a monster once you use him even from lv. 1. He 
                 is so good to use. You cannot go wrong with this character. He
                 has some of the best skills in the game. He even keeps the
                 fire element on his sixth weapon. His only problem is damage
                 against some bosses (like Tadakatsu). 

                 Nobunaga is very good like Yukimura, but what made him stay as
                 high is the fourth skill. It is good, but once you get hit or
                 cancel it, the effect will disappear. So you have to do 
                 everything right from the start. Other than that, he is as 
                 monstrous as Nouhime and Ranmaru combined.

                 Kenshin dances in every mode. This character is so much about
                 substance than style alone. If you are really skilled, you 
                 could finish every boss without giving him/her a chance to 
                 attack you. Which means, not even once. Moreover, he has the
                 best element in the game, which is ice. His problem is damage.
                 That is the only thing. Other than that, he is powerful.

                 Nouhime is another safe character who lacks decent stats. And
                 no, she is not completely safe like Zabii or Mitsuhide. You 
                 cannot equip the 4x damage items and finish everything 
                 "constaly." Moreover, she does not become safe until later on
                 when you get her best skills and fifth weapon. Once you get 
                 them, you will be unstoppable.

                 Shingen is a WALKING tank. Now this is a character with a huge
                 weapon who makes you smile while playing. His wind skill 
                 (first skill) is so powerful that you do not need anything to
                 make him better. His Basara is VERY basic, but VERY useful. It
                 makes you do many mix-ups. Shingen's stats are one of the best
                 stats in the game. His problem is that his other skills are
                 bleh to use against bosses. And he is a bit slow.
 
                 Ranmaru is another safe character. Ranmaru's skills are ALL 
                 good. He has a sweet infinite and his combos and juggles make
                 him easily one of the best characters. His problem is his 
                 stats... namely his HP. And his air triangle button. So risky.
                 Other than that, he is very good. His Basara Attack is one of
                 the best.

                 Itsuki (without her hammer) is... what can I say? Unbelivbly
                 good. THAT good! POWERFUL combos, good stats and very safe
                 hit and run tatics. Hell, she becomes very, very fast. That
                 is why the hit and run tactics work wonders. She is not one
                 of the top characters because she cannot defend, cannot use 
                 most of her skills or even her Basara Attack. You must be 
                 careful with her.

                 Matsu is Kenshin and Toshiie combined. What do you get? ^_^

Mid characters: Toshiie has some great skills. Actually he has some of the best
                juggles in the game. His Basara screams "SUBSTANCE!" Then why 
                is he mid instead of high? Because he can hardly do decent 
                damage and his basic normal attacks are not that fast. He is a 
                decent character, but can finish off most of the bosses with a 
                skilled player... even from lv. 1.

                Itsuki (with her hammer) is very slow with the hammer. Her 
                Basara Attack is great, but still she swings her hammer slowly 
                and her air attacks become a bit useless. Overall, I find her 
                good... in fact some people see her great (the opinion differs
                as I said before).               

Low characters: Tadakatsu has the best stats, but does he really do heavy 
                damage?! No! Is he as good as he seems to be?! No! Does
                he start with super useful skills?! No! Is Tadakatsu as a
                whole an effective character against bosses?! No! Does this 
                "thing" have anything to write home about (the hell)?! No! 
                Unless you count his third skill as one, then YES! ^_~
 
                Yoshihiro has a huge weapon! OH MY GOD! EH SI EHT TSEB (read
                it backwards)!!! I mean, how bad can he be?! Easy. Slow, easy
                to side step, awful Basara Attack, retarded combo, heavy 
                start-up and recovery times when he uses some of his skills or
                his basic combo (normal attack). You will abuse his skills more
                than anything else (namely last and second skill).

  Well, that's about, fellas. ^_^

  Just a reminder, you do not have to agree with it. This is mainly based on my
experience on Extreme Mode with every character. I do not put my emotions when
I make a comment on a character. They are all equal to me. I try to be as clear
and informative as possible. And I am not saying who is the best in the game... 
it is based on who is the best against each boss. So do not misunderstand 
(well, the list won't change much if it was).  

  Someone told me; "Archors, gunners and rock throwers cannot hurt 
Tadakatsu. Therefore he is the best!" I really did not know what to say to him!
I mean, I do know that they do not hurt him, but... do people still get hit by 
these kinds of weaklings?! 90% of the F.A.Q. is about bosses... because 
ANYTHING at all other than bosses are nothing but weaklings. I do not even 
waste my time fighting them. 

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

7. Fast LVs:
------------
  Leveling up can be pretty hard if you do not think about it for a second. 
There are many ways to level up fast... here are some:

1- Masamune's stage on Extreme Mode. Even if your character is weak, Masamune
is very weak and can be finished easily. All you need to do is finish
everything in his stage and you will get some good EXPs (not to mention W&Is).
His stage is good if you are just about to play the game for the first time 
(which means you do not have items or weapons yet).

2- Nobunaga's stage on Extreme Mode. There is a spot with respawn soldiers just
right when you get to Ranmaru. The general is hiding way far, so as long as you
do not approach him and focus on the soldiers, everything will be fine. That 
means do not approach Ranmaru too. Just kill as many as you want and finish the
stage to see the full surprise. I hope you know how to finish the three bosses
properly. ^_^

3- Equip the item set (R14C2-R14C4) to get 30000 EXP after the battle. Now, 
choose the defending battle (where you have to defend the two big gates) on 
Extreme Mode and finish it. You will get 57000 nice and easy. You can DO it 
with any character so long as you abuse your Basara and not let anyone hit you.
Easy, believe me.

4- Same as above, equip the item set (R14C2-R14C4) to get 30000 EXP after the 
battle... but choose Masamune's stage on "hard mode." Masamune is weak and you 
can finish him fast. Get rid of him in the first fight and when he flees, ride 
the horse and get him off it (he will say SH!t, heh) and finish him again and 
you will get 46000. Good for fast fights.

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

-------------------
8. Items & Weapons:
-------------------

NM = Normal Mode
HM = Hard Mode
EM = Extreme Mode

================================================================================
NM: Can get only 2nd & 3rd and 4th weapons and upgrade them with 1st weapons
================================================================================
HM: Can get only 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th weapons and upgrade them with 1st weapon
================================================================================
EM: Can get only 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th weapons and upgrade them with 2nd weapon
================================================================================

  Now on how to get many treasure boxes to get the weapons & items FAST:

1- There are two item sets to get five small or big treasure boxes after you 
clear the stage (R10C2-R10C4 or R18C2-R18C4).

2- Masamune's stage. Since he is the easiest to get rid off and his stage has 
about 15 treasure boxes (defeating him 2, 4 hidden ones and defeating 9 
generals). Add the five small or big boxes item set to get after you clear the
stage (R10C2-R10C4 or R18C2-R18C4) and you will get 20 treasure boxes. 

3- To get the fifth and sixth weapons in one go and fast, choose Masamune's
stage on Extreme Mode and then finish it. Have triple damage item set 
(R11C2-R11C4) so that you could use the Basara a lot and do a lot of damage.
Just memorize where the archors appear... RIDE THE HORSE to not get hit by 
them and then use your circle button whenever you feel you are in danger. When
you get to the second fight, do not go in... let Masamune run after you to the
spot where you killed the last general. Abuse your Basara and flee then come 
back when it gets refilled.

|  Weapons tend to appear more frequently than normal items. That means the   |
|  luck to get them is way higher. If the item you want did not appear in a   |
|  long time of playing the game, then keep playing. We know about luck and   |
|  such, but still when you try to follow the tips you will make your chances | 
|  higher to get at least most of the items faster, if not all.               |

9. Basara & Skill Chart:
------------------------
  The following charts are based on my experience on Extreme Mode ONLY! I could
careless about either Normal or Hard Mode. It could be updated if I noticed 
anything important but I highly doubt it. Please read below before reading the
chart because you will pretty much misunderstand many important things. And 
REMEMBER, this only applies to warlords/bosses on Extreme Mode NOT Generals or
other weaklings.

|  This is easy to understand. When I say... i.e. 30-50%, it means the     |
|  most damage a character can do and mistakes are counted. And yes, the   |
|  damage with the best stats a character can have (only Atk up & Def up   |

|  As in Escape Rate. This is pretty clear. The rate to the bosses/warlords |
|  side step when you use the Basara Attack. When the rate goes high, it    |
|  means the the bosses will escape more easily. 0% means no escape.        |

  Now how each warlord/boss can be effected by the Basara Attack and the
percentage to evading each Basara Attack.

  Read vertically NOT horizontally. You will get things complicated and 
mixed-up if you read horizontally. It is meant to be vertically anyways.

  This should be self-explanatory, but just in case you get these two mixed
up, horizontal means longways... left and right while vertical means up and 
down. ^_^

  This will be fast to rate each skill in the game. This cannot be disagreed

  In short, the ones who can max out anything are as follows (of course by also
using the items to power up stats, because without them, none can max out 
ANYTHING, not even Tadakatsu):

HP:
---
- Tadakatsu

Attack:
-------
- Tadakatsu
- Zabbi
- Yoshihiro

Defense:
--------
- Shingen
- Tadakatsu

HP, Attack & Defense (all at the same time):
--------------------------------------------
None

  That would be all.

  Some skills will sound powerful to you, if you have not played the game
yet... but in fact they are not! They are not at all. So, do not be fooled. If
you want to know how good, average or bad each skill is, read the Skill Chart

"OH MY G...! Heh-he, interesting!" (to Zabbi)

  Masamune's voiced by the same person who voiced Zoro (A.K.A. Mr. Gameshark)
from One Piece.

  Masamune is very balanced. Most of the newcomers will choose him or Yukimura
first. His design, eye-patch, six swords, blue armor and attitude are more than
enough to like him. He mixes Japanese with English a lot (i.e. Anta, yaru na...
great). Also, he swears a lot (easy to say SH!T). His quotes are funny/cool.

  He begins with two normal Special Moves, but becomes a monster after you 
get his third and fourth Special Moves (Magnum Step & War Dance) and the item 
that makes you hold always six Katanas instead of one/three. Moreover, his 
Super Attack/Move is okay but not the best. Bosses on Extreme Mode easily roll
or backstep when you hit them with it. 

  He has the funniest ending in the game, in my opinion. I would not say he is
hot-blooded like Motochika or Yukimura... I would say he loves what he is doing
with a passion.

"Rest assured. Our opponent is Kenshin."

  I think Yukimura is the most used character in the game due to his screams
(very solid voice acting), his useful skills and weapons. He is one hot-blooded
person and wants to always be in the front lines in his battles to show how 
powerful he really is. He adores Shingen so much (like a fanboy) that sometimes
it feels strange. ^_^

  Yukimura has what it takes to take on Extreme Mode without even leveling up. 
When I unlocked Extreme Mode with Nobunaga, I began the mode with Yukimura and
it was a walk in the park. 

  His five Special Moves are all useful... even his Super Move. You can easily
make him "invincible" by choosing the first and fifth Special Moves, fifth or 
sixth weapon and equip the item that makes Shingen help when his HP is in 
critical. His fifth skill has a pattern... which makes Yukimura spin around
constantly if you memorize it. This is a KILLER to ANY BOSS in the game.  

  and hey, I was kidding. It's; "Don't let your guard down. Our enemy is 
Kenshin." ^_^

"Foolish woman! So weak!"

  Capcom cannot make Nobunaga more bad@$$ or evil than this. BEST Nobunaga I 
have ever seen in any game. SO EVIL. Plus, he has the best design in the game
with no question asked. I do not know but it seems Capcom has really done well
with this evildoer this time around. 

  Nobunaga is good in every way. His combo is good enough to abuse. It has a 
little start-up but can be overlooked when you see the damage. Nobunaga is a 
close, mid and long range character. For a long range fight, you can use the 
shotgun. For the mid-range fights, either use his Special Attacks or his cmobo. 
For close range fights, do any. And ABUSE the Super Move in any range. 

  Most of the people hate the dark element weapons because they take the 
character's HP more than give him HP in return. But I say, the one only useful
thing about them is when you go solo against a boss and want to abuse your 
Super Move. You just let the weapon drain your HP until it goes critical and 
then good morning to the Basara. Hit and wait for it to refill tactic works 
wonders.

  Moreover, he has some mix-ups if you try to understand how to combine the 
sword with shotgun attacks. You get many neat combinations. As I said, Capcom 
did really well with Nobunaga this time.

"Step aside! You are in the way!" (to Yukimura)

  Kenshin and Paku... do they ever part? ^_^

  Well, it is Kenshin who's known as God of War (Kenshin had so much confidence
of himself to the point he claimed himself to be the "personification" of the
God of War, *Bishamonten (A.K.A. Tamonten)). Kenshin falls in one department...
design department. Unfortunately, it is bad. Not what you expect for someone
like Kenshin. 

  Everything else is about as good as Nobunaga. Kenshin is fast and has the
most powerful element in the game (in my opinion)... which is ice. It stuns the 
opponent for a second and does quite some damage. His God Speed attacks are one
of the better ones in the game. His Special Moves can be abused easily. Kenshin
dances in every mode, not fights... if you get my drift.  

  He is very calm. You cannot go wrong with this character. It just feels 
stupid to see his relationship with Kasuga.

"Ranmaru-kun, are you okay? Do your best!"

  Nouhime is not that safe from the first moment you use her (and I mean on
Extreme Mode from the first moment) due to her awful stats (HP is included). 
She becomes safe when you get the bosses killer skill, gatling gun... and 
her fifth skill. Moreover, she becomes quite powerful when you get her fifth 
weapon. 

  Nouhime is Dante with some additions, to me. Her Basara attack (which we call
Raising Storm) is quite useful. Even when you reach level 20 and get all her 
weapons to 99, her stats will still blow compared to the most of the other 
characters. But it meant to be that way, because she becomes quite safe later 
on when you get her best skills and weapons. 

  Nouhime is the "2nd" safest character. Just watch out for those archers. ^_^

"Superb, Sasuke! Incredible!"

  Shingen is a walking tank. His attacks are really heavy. 

  All you need is, to abuse his Basara Move and his first skill and good night
to every opponent.  

  He is the only character who is capable of charging his Basara (not that it
is completely useful but just so you know). I think Capcom got Shingen right...
he is supposed to be like this.

  On top of that, Shingen's voiced by Genda. It is Genda, fellas. ^_^ How can
you not like Shingen now (do Adon/Berserk and Umibozu/City Hunter ring a 
bell)? ^_^

"I DID IT, NOBUNAGA-SAMAAAA!" ^_^

  Ranmaru should always be like this. A kid. 

  Don't be fooled by the looks. This kid is so fun to use. He is fast and most
of his skills work well in any situation. Sometimes I think a lot when I want
to choose his skills, because all of them are that good. 

  His Basara attack is one of the best. Multiple hits and wide area coverage.
What else do you need? Can easily mix it with a nice combo... like Squarex4,
juggle with his second skill then Basara attack. Nice. 

  He starts with low HP because he is kind of safe, even if that happens when
you get some of his skills.

"Everyone, let me do this. You run away!"

  If you are looking for a cute girl, then this is what you are looking for.

  Her Basara attack is the longest one I have seen so far, and a good one too. 
This girl can play with or without a hammer (item always, or skill for a few
seconds). 

  The ice-ball skill is quite good. With the hammer she is a bit slow in 
movement and attacking. Most of the people think the item to get rid of the 
hammer is for fun, but I say no... the item is quite useful because she 
becomes very fast and can use her POWERFUL combo anytime. Bosses go down SO 
FAST when you use it (including Tadakatsu). 

  I tired to play Extreme with the hammer (lv 1) and could not do good. Without
the hammer, the results were very different. Managed to get every weapon, 
skill and complete Extreme Mode with her from Lv 1. When you get the fifth
weapon (ice element), you can use the hammer if you want.

"Ae-ea! You are stupid!"

  damn CPU can use two moves that you cannot. 

  Cannot say Sasuke is one of the most powerful characters nor weakest ones. He
is just okay. His criticals make him good (B.A.)... even his Basara makes him 
one of the best in the game. He finishes the stages so fast with it.

  If you like Ninjas, then he is your choice. Once you get his last two skills,
you will do better with him and abuse them. Nothing flashy about his Basara 
attack, but it is better than many (good morning Zabii). He is a dark element
character... that is a plus in my book. 

  He has the worst ending in the game, in my opinion.

"Everyone! Do your best to kill your enemies."

  I do not know what thay have done to Mitsuhide, but still... it is quite 
funny. 

  Mitsuhide is a natural freak. The psychotic does not need an item to be able 
to beat his followers. Can beat the crap out of them and suck their life bars
anytime he wants. He laughs a lot... his Basara attack is so funny (when he
finishes). 

  I do not understand why most of the guys think he is useless. I did not use 
him on either Normal or Hard mode... just Extreme Mode and he seemed fine. You
have to get used to him a bit. May be even liking the character does improve 
you.

All you need is:
1)First skill, sweep.
2)Fifth skill, protection (best skill in the game).
3)Triple damage items (R11C2-R11C4).

  You will be perfectly good. You will go through everything with complete 
ease. To make a long story short, Mitsuhide's one of the characters who I had
the pleasure to use for quite some time.

"ZABII, ZABII, ZABII, ZABII, ZABII, ZABII, ZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABII!!"

  Laughs... ^_^

  I have never wanted to see an actor doing his job more than Shioya. I REALLY 
want to see how he did the vocal for Zabii. 

  Zabii is for sure "the safest" character in the game. You can EASILY go 
through any stage on Extreme Mode and even with the Lv 1 weapon (first one 
too), first skill and without any item. Yes, he is THAT safe. 

  I leveled him from 1 to 20 in one go. There is a spot with infinite soldiers 
(if you do not approach their general) in Nobunaga's stage. I killed about 4600
or so and was able to unlock almost everything (skills and some weapons). Mind 
you, Nobunaga's is not that easy because you will have to play against Ranmaru,
then Nouhime then Nobunaga. And you cannot get out when you face Nobunaga.

   it is just that Zabii's first skill can be abused easily. Can get perfect 
with any boss. Why? Because he is a long range character. When you get his 
third skill and fifth one... you can do whatever you want. You will feel like 
you are playing on Normal Mode, not Extreme Mode. 

  He has a protection move. He summons five stupid-looking angels (very funny)
to protect him. Completely invincible until you get rid of them by hitting him
five times (blocking doesn't count). His stats are one of the best. My attack 
power is maximum.

  There is a catch, right? Yes... bad Basara attack and slow in movement. Bad 
side steps/roll/backstep and heavy recovery times after some attacks.

  Do not think he is my favorite, that is why I am saying so. Actually my 
favorite characters are Nobunaga, Mitsuhide and Kenshin (Motochika would have
easily joined the club if he was playable). I am just stating facts. Some
people did not understand him because they were used to Yukimura and the close
range characters... hack 'n slash. They did the same with Zabii and were
confused why he sucked. So, they did not give him a chance. Zabii is one stupid
looking fella but cracks me up a lot. His quotes are really funny.

  In other words, he is one of the powerful characters in the game.

"Ohh! NICE SHOTO!"

  It seems that everybody respects him... well, except Nobunaga. ^_^

  I was fooled with this character. I really was. First character with a huge
sword to disappoint me ever (Guts ==> all GSW characters). 

  You will abuse his skills more than his combo (namely his second and last
skill). Most of his skills blow and his Basara attack blows big time due to the
fact bosses on Extreme Mode can easily side step even when you hit them. 

  Even his normal attack... it has a start-up and a long recovery time. Why? 
Basically if you miss hitting, Yoshihiro will not follow up. How does that
sound? Do not understand? There is no 2 3 4 5 attacks if 1 did not touch the
opponent. Moreover, there is a long recovery time if he misses the first hit. 
He will change the weapon if you get the fifth one... a huge axe.

  Good that I unlocked him very late. I had almost every good item to power him
up, got everything and then got rid of him. And so that what I exactly did.

"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  Tadakatsu (also known as Gundam to many) is another walking tank. This robot
is a monster. 

  I did not have fun using him. He felt way too good. Swinging around his 
weapon without anyone stopping him. And when someone does, circle button to
perform Thunder Break. A walking machine. ^_^ The prize for unlocking everyone
else, I guess! And I am talking as a whole, not only against bosses (DO NOT 
MISUNDERSTAND, he is NOT the best character, nor even one of the most 
powerful ones)!

  Was it a good idea to make Tadakatsu a robot?! The red eye says who cares!

"Matsu, Matsu, where are you?!"

  Well-shaped body... full of scars. Mmmm, reminds me of someone. ^_^

  Another okay character. He will not change much even if you get his skills
and weapons. I would say he is very balanced. Not too good and not too bad 
either. His juggles and Basara attack make him good.

  Toshiie is very basic, yet very good for mind games. His Basara Attack is
very basic but awesome in its own way. I am one of the players who like simple
Basara Attacks rather than flashy ones. Substance over flash/style in short. 
Sad that you cannot turn him around when you use his Basara attack. 

  You will laugh a lot when other characters get to his stage. Their comments
on him and Matsu are so funny. Especially Shingen's.

"Ha-h... Matsu is happy for you." (to Toshiie)

  Bleh. A clone character. She has some of Kenshin's moves (and BEST ones), 
even his Basara attack (a little bit different) and two of Toshiie's skills. Of
course ice element like Kenshin. 

  She even talks a bit like Kenshin. Play her the way you do with Kenshin. She 
is a clone after all.

  Matsu and Toshiie have a special intro if they manage to reunite in their 
stage. Kind of cool. They just need to say "Kore ga Ii no chikara da nai yo" 
(this is the power of true love) and get it over with. ^_^

"This is my power! How do you find it?!"

  Another clone except from one fighter... Sasuke. Sasuke has dark element and
she is the same except she uses a white owl and Sasuke uses a crow after the
double jump.

  She has all of Sasuke's skills (even his Basara attack) except the last one.
She becomes quite good with the sixth weapon due to the criticals.

  Capcom dropped the ball here. Motochika, Motonari and Yoshimoto would have
been better choices, especially Motochika (Ishino, it's been a long time).

15. General Tips:
-----------------
  Just to help you go through Extreme Mode from Lv. 1, even with Lv. 1 weapons
and first two skills you get:
                               ______________
                              |              |
 _____________________________| General Tips |________________________________
|                             |______________|                                |
|                                                                             |
|                                                                             |
| - Never get careless. Focus and remain focused until you finish the stage.  |
|   Hack & slash and get careless, and then you will be surprised of how fast |
|   your character gets eliminated after two/three stabs TOPS from            |
|   General-like soliders (assuming you are at Lv. 1, of course).             |
|                                                                             |
| - Whenever you have full Basara Bar, USE IT! And I mean when they group on  |
|   you. Do not be stingy. Basara Bar fills so fast when you hack and slash a |
|   group of soldiers, so try to use it whenever you "just" feel that your    |
|   character is in danger.                                                   |
|                                                                             |
| - Try to take everything step by step. Do not rush unless you have powerful |
|   items to back you up. Otherwise, stick to taking on each group of         |
|   soldiers one by one and do not leave any soul breathing.                  |
|                                                                             |
| - Always let your support character(s) close to you. You have no idea how   |
|   useful and effective he/she is or they are. They do "so little" damage,   |
|   but the main reason why you have to keep close, is because they fight     |
|   well and interrupt the opponent's offense like there is no tomorrow. THIS |
|   IS A MAJOR PLUS. Warlords and soldiers will have to focus on your support |
|   character(s) instead of you. So, you can run and do your strategy nicely  |
|   and smoothly.                                                             |
|                                                                             |
| - ALWAYS face your enemy when you want to defend. If you give your enemy    |
|   your back and defend, you will get a direct hit. Yes, that much detailed. |
|                                                                             |
| - People do not really understand how good the side steps, back step, dash, |
|   and roll are! So very good. Many people just keep it simple to hack and   |
|   slash, and then complain on how some characters are bad... but in fact    |
|   they are the only sucky ones who disgrace the characters with their awful |
|   tactics/play. ^_^ Learn how to use them effectively so that you would     |
|   easily avoid any damaging attack, and then PUNISH! Read below for further |
|   explanation on how to avoid the most dangerous attacks from the enemies.  |
|                                                                             |
| - If your character's Basara Attack blows big time (good morning, Zabbi and |
|   Yoshihiro) then use it to interrupt your opponents' attacks when you are  |
|   in danger or when you feel the need to have some space between you and    |
|   your opponent.                                                            |
|                                                                             |
| - For Basara Attacks like Toshiie's, try to have a good position to damage  |
|   all near by soldiers at once. When they group on you, take a sweet back   |
|   step and then perform the Basara Attack. You will damage them all AND     |
|   your play will look more stylish. ^_~ Or use them after juggles (A.T.)    |
|                                                                             |
| - Take full advantage of your character's good skills (see the Skill        |
|   Chart). ABUSE them as long as you can.                                    |
|                                                                             |
| - If your character poses after he/she finishes his/her normal suqare C.Hs  |
|   (like Toshiie or Kenshin), then cancel to any skill or Basara Attack. Or  |
|   just stop before the last hit. That simple.                               |
|                                                                             |
| - Use your air triangle button, because it juggles your opponent and gives  |
|   some nice options. Not all characters juggle, though.                     |
|                                                                             |
| - Do not eat all the recovery items in the stage, because you might need    |
|   them when you screw up with a certain boss. You will be able to go back   |
|   and get them (except with some bosses who force you not to flee).         |
|                                                                             |
| - When you reach a place with dozen of archors/gunners, then ALWAYS finish  |
|   off their General to scare them, and then annihilate them.                |
|                                                                             |
| - Generals get scared/beg for mercy if you do a surprise attack or a heavy  |
|   attack, and sometimes when they are about to die. Fast do a fast and good |
|   combo to finish them off fast.                                            |
|                                                                             |
| - Ninja Masters are THE best after Warlords/bosses. They are so fast, jump, |
|   attack fast, and never late to group on you. Also, they have combos.      |
|   Hell, they even can Kawarimi your attacks and they can vanish. Eliminate  |
|   them whenever you see them. Use your Basara Attack, combo or any damaging |
|   skill to wipe them out fast. Never get careless here, never.              |
|                                                                             |
| - Counter Hit works wonders. Use it whenever you can. If done correctly     |
|   you will do some damage and scare the soldiers. It works on Generals as   |

| - All characters can go through Extreme Mode from Lv. 1, first weapons and  |
|   first skills except Yoshihiro. His downs are more than his ups. You need  |
|   to power him up a little.                                                 |

| - Your characters are the best in the game, then Warlords/bosses, then      |
|   support characters, then Ninja Masters, then Generals then General-like   |
|   soldiers. Others are nothing but weaklings.                               |

| - Kenshin and his clone, Matsu, have the best side steps, back step and     |

16. Questions & Answers:
------------------------

==================
Tadakatsu, Round 1
==================
Q: What is the fastest time you can finish off Tadakatsu? And who is the lucky
winner to accomplish such a hard thing?

A: First, it is not hard. Second, that would be Zabii... six seconds. 

---

==================
Tadakatsu, Round 2
==================
Q: Who are the two safest characters to fight against Tadakatsu? And I mean 
100% safe (without unlimited Basara item set). 

A: Zabii and Mitsuhide. Protection + Triple damage item set = 100% safe. 

---

======================
Tadakatsu, Final Round
======================
Q: Is Tadakatsu the best (as in most powerful) character in the game (player, 
not boss)?!

A: Many people misunderstood my tidbit about him. ^_^

  To set the records straight... Tadakatsu is far from the best character in 
the game. He is not even close to the six most powerful characters in the game,
not even close. 

  Tadakatsu has the best stats (but not far from Shingen), but does not mean he
is a boss killer. You can defeat bosses with him, but not as perfectly/well 
done as say, Zabii, Kenshin, Sasuke or Yukimura (just to name a few).

  I can kill anyone with him, but the only reason why I "keep" using him is
because I so like to hear Tokugawa's voice actor and his quotes. And that 
is the main reason.

---

===========
Instant Win
===========
Q: WOW! There are actually items to make you have unlimited Basara?! That is
instant win!

A: Not really! First, getting the item set is completely RANDOM. You might get 
them very late after you unlock everything, and you may not. All in all, you 
will feel VERY bored when you perform your Basara attack repeatedly due to the 
fact that bosses will die slowly NOT faster on Extreme Mode... and you will get
the feeling that you are really not doing anything, if you get what I mean. 

  Oh, not mention most of the Basara attacks are a bit useless against bosses 
on Extreme Mode, because they evade a lot. And others are way too long to do 
everytime. 

  To make a long story short, you do not get the "sense of accomplishment" 
feeling.

---

============
Extreme Mode
============
Q: The tips you gave about the fast LVs are good, but why do you insist on
Extreme Mode? Cannot be done on any mode?

A: It can be done on any mode, but I "adviced" Extreme Mode because of the 
sweet EXP. 

  In Grey Fox's words; "More... more..." ^_^

---

==================
Mitsuhide's Basara
==================
Q: Does Mitsuhide scare the Generals (N.Os) and bosses as well when he performs
his Basara?

A: Soldiers and Generals, yes... bosses, no.

---

========
Missions
========
Q: Are there missions like S.W.E.L.? I hope not!

A: There are "optional missions/tasks." You are not forced to do them, but if
you do you will get EXP. BUT, there is one "not" optional mission. In Shingen's
second stage. If you allow the enemy to get in your base and the danger bar
gets to zero, you will get "Game Over."

---

===========
Flawed A.I.
===========
Q: The soldiers are lazy and the support characters suck just as much. 
WHAT THE HELL!!!

A: What do you expect from such weaklings? ^_^

  Fun aside, I agree... Capcom did not really try hard here. The only thing you
can do to the support characters to make them advance is push them to the 
nearest enemy. Then they will run to them automatically. After you finish, push
them again and again and again. Or you can kill the weaklings and when you get
to the boss, run and let him/her follow you to your support characters. ^_^

---

==============
Treasure Boxes
==============
Q: What is the difference between getting 1 or 20 treasure boxes if it all 
depends on pure luck?

A: You are just saying in other words; "What's the point of equipping lucky 
charm in any RPG game when I still can get the items in the hard way!"

  In case you did not get it... 20 means your chances are higher than 1 
freaking treasure box. Do not tell me it is not true, because that is 100% BS
(excuse my language). Some people do not have all day. 

---

==================
Masamune's Engrish
==================
Q: I heard Masamune says some words in Engrish! Can you confirm that, please?!

A: Yes, and some other lines. Such as, "Holly sh!t," "Goddamn," "Whatta hell,"
"SH!T," and "Here we go. YEAH!"

---

=======
Quotes:
=======
Q: Is it true that each character has ONLY 20 quotes and 10 to NPCs?!

A: No! What you see in the QS is the most basic ones. PCs have more than 
35 quotes (Tadakatsu is for sure excluded) and NPCs have more than 15 quotes
at least. The only exception is Tokugawa who has more quotes than the other
NPCs since he joins most of Tadakatsu's fights. So good to hear. 

  Basically, they did not add the coversations in the QS. Each one says 
something when they get in each stage. Hearing Shingen's comments on each 
character is... priceless! I could play the game everyday just to hear
them. ^_~

---

=============
Messy Battles
=============
Q: I very much like messed up stages where you cannot even understand what the
hell is going on. And I mean like someone screaming here and there, bombs
everywhere, complicated paths, insults from warlords and such! Are there any? 
Please say yes!

A: Then you will like Motochika's stage a lot. Not only that, but he will shut
every character up. He is really mean. I remember Yukimura saying to Shingen; 
"Mitete kuraiyo!" (please watch me) and then Motochika straight away shouts  
"Urusei yo, acchi ke yo!" (SHUT UP & GET LOST/AWAY). Oh, that made me laugh for
quite a long time. Couldn't even hold the controller! ^_^

  Very sad Motochika is not playable.

---

=======================
Skillful Itsuki Players
=======================
Q: I am a big fan of Itsuki's. When I read the tidbits you wrote about her,
I was really pleased. I did just what you exactly did. I just thought you
forgot to mention one important thing, and that is why "maybe" many see the
item as for fun more than a serious and helpful one. The thing you forgot to
mention is Itsuki needs a very skillful player to do well without the hammer, 
not just like with the hammer. Don't you agree?

A: Indeed! I forgot that one important point. A friend of mine told me about it
as well. Did not think it would be that hard for everyone! But, then again, it
seems so. ^_^

  I agree! I really had fun using her without the hammer and playing hit and
run tactic. I added a "P.S." just in case. Thank you for reminding me! 

----

=======
Heroism
=======
Q: I know Capcom made the characters more evil in the US version, even went
so far as to change their names, add moves and add some darkness in the
stages. But, since the Japanese version is not the same, are there any heroes
with heroic acts and quotes?

A: Heh! Capcom did ALL THAT to the US version? This is quite new to me. 
Hopefully you will like it guys (I don't check the boards that much)!

  As for your question, If you expect someone to come and act like Rom Stol and
say; "I have a destiny to destroy evil and justice will prevail." then no. ^_^

  Other than that, Kenshin has (or had for that matter) a very strong sense of
justice. And he is very calm. You will like him.

---

============
Horn Trumpet
============
Q: About the soldiers with horn trumpet... What do they really do? What 
happens if they blow their horn beside making sound? 

A: When he sounds/makes a warning to the soldiers, the soldiers will be called
upon. You will notice them near by once he does that. They will respawn as long
as he keeps calling out for help. Once defeated, they will stop respawning.

---

===============
Immortal Horses
===============
Q: Are the horses immortal or can they be killed? Can all the characters ride
them?!

A: They can be killed. Heavy attacks from the soldiers kill them and one hard
strike from a warlord can kill it fast. Basically, they are weak but fast and
good if you know how to avoid being hit and when to hit the circle or triangle
button when you are in danger.

  As for the second question (who cannot ride horses):
- Tadakatsu... always 
- Itsuki without the hammer (item or second skill)
- Nobunaga if you use his fifth skill
- Nouhime if you use her fifth skill

  You cannot ride horses while using any skill except for Kasuga's sixth skill
and the protection skill for Zabii and Mitsuhide. The skills will even "remain"
even if you ride a horse. Makes you even more powerful and safe. Needless to
say, Sasuke's Kage Bunshin no Jutsu (sixth skill) remains if you ride a
horse... the clones will disappear but will reappear when you get off the 
horse. They will disappear and not reappear if you ride the horse for a few
seconds though. 

---

=======
Boredom
=======
Q: I have almost everything, but I am bored to the limits of wiping out 
everything everytime I get in any stage! I just want to have a lot of fun and
not limit myself to such boredom. What to do?!

A: You have almost everything and doing all that everytime?! You must have 
wasted a lot of time. ^_^

  Anyway, after getting everything your aim will only be Generals and 
Warlords/bosses... and of course treasure boxes or some weaklings if you want
to do something flashy. If you want to finish the stages in less than five 
minutes, use Sasuke & Kasuga (except Tokugawa's stage, Mikatagahara... Zabbi
can finish it much faster). Their Basara Attacks work wonders.

  Also, if you feel bored, try to do some flashy things... be a bit stylish 
when you control your character and do not limit yourself with the squarex4 and
then Basara Attack or any skill. Moreover, if you feel very powerful and 
memorized everything, then equip the weakest weapons and go through Extreme 
Mode... you will have a lot of fun. I know I do!

  One more thing, some people think that there is no difference between 
watching an average player finishing the game, and a good player! But I say,
there is a big difference. It is like the difference between boredom and 
interesting, even if they have the same weapons, skills (CSs) and items 
(FGFs understand well what I am talking about).

---

===========
Level Limit
===========
Q: Is there a level limit?

A: There is a level limit to weapons, character levels and some items. Weapons
and first four items (first row), 99. Characters, 20. Basara Attack can go up
to only 2.

---

========
Nobunaga
========
Q: I was a little confused with the relationships and followers of each 
Warlord. Are they messing up something? And how about Nobunaga?

Q: Yes, they did (but not all, just some of them). And about Nobunaga, it
goes like this:

                 |------------------> Tokugawa Ieyasu <-------> Honda Tadakatsu
                 |
                 |
                 |------------------> Maeda Toshiie <-------> Matsu
                 |     
                 | 
Oda Nobunaga <----------------------> Nouhime
------------     |
                 |
                 |------------------> Mori Ranmaru    
                 |
                 |
                 |------------------> Akechi Mitsuhide (rebelled)  

---

==================
Favorite Character
==================
Q: Are your favorite characters based on the in-game skills, designs and quotes
or historical figures?!

A: Of course the first choice. 

  My favorite Japanese Historical Figure is none other than the great Tokugawa
Ieyasu, but I do not like his appearance in the game that much. Capcom did not 
try hard with him unfortunately. Only his quotes and Okawa saved him (voice 
actor) from being as low as Ujimasa. He is not playable anyways. So there is 
nothing to lose, I guess. ^_^ 

  The only poor character is Ujimasa. I do not see anything going for him 
except the way he brags about his ancestors. The closer you get to him, the
more he gets shocked and scared. Very cool. Encourages you to get even closer
to him and knock him out. Well, he has the best two quotes in the game right
when you open the gate right before the last one. 

---

==============
Addendum Guide
==============
Q: I have been using the guide since its first release and I must say, you
have made a lot of progress! A job well done, I must say... but I do not think
people will understand why it is called "Boss F.A.Q." since it has so many 
other important things! Why do not you try to create other F.A.Qs for the 
unrelated things like anything other than bosses?

A: I have?! ^_^

  Well, true. Now the F.A.Q. should be called "Addendum Guide" since I added 
many other things. But I did not really think about it a lot. I was just trying
to include as many important things as possible since you can notice the lack
of any F.A.Qs here!

  In short, I was just trying to help the gamers/newcomers. I hope it was not 
such a bothersome!

*Last update (10/10/2005) - I changed the F.A.Q's name.  

---

==========
Comparison
==========
Q: I am a big fan of Dynasty Warriors series and Samurai Warriors: Extreme 
Legends. How does this game compare to both?

A: I will not talk about D.W. series because I have never played any (as in
gave it my full time) except the first one. The others did not keep me 
interested (no offense). I will talk about E.L. instead because I liked it 
much better than D.W. series.

  Sengoku Basara is smoother, has more style, solid voice acting and better 
designs. Also, some characters look better than in S.W. like Kenshin (bad 
design though), Shingen, Ranmaru, Nobunaga, Yukimura (E.L's is good as well) 
AND Masamune. Last but not least, it has better BGMs. 

  Samurai Warriors: Extreme Legends has bigger stages, better A.I., bodyguards, 
2-Player Co-op battles AND a very good game if you want to know about the 
legends (J.H.Fs). 

---

========
Worth It
========
Q: Is the game worth buying? Seriously!

A: To each his own. All I know is one thing, the game was released before
Fatal Frame 3 and Super Robot Wars Alpha 3. I kept playing, finished FF3 &
SRWA3 and STILL playing the game until today! Hell, I did not finish Grandia 3
first disc because I am not giving it much time because of Sengoku Basara (and
the only truely RPG series I love is Grandia's). 

  Needless to say, I finished and unlocked everything and got every weapon but
still playing. This is coming from someone who does not really spend a lot of
time in any genre other than fighting games genre. It is just that sometimes
some games really surprise you to the point you spend so much time on them... 
like Tetsujin 28-Go.

*Last update (9/19/2005) - I just finished Grandia's first disc. Well, good
                           morning to me. But it is okay. I am not really 
                           into RPGs that much.
---

=========
Gameshark
=========
Q: Gameshark codes, PLEASE! I'M DYING HERE! HELP!

A: "Some will use their power to destroy and kill, but as long as there is
light of life, we will not fall. People call this love. I will not forgive
those who allow the darkness to overcome them. ACCEPT YOUR FATE AND DIE!" - 
Crono's leader, Kirai's son... Rom Stol

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

---------------
17. Quote List:
---------------
  The following quotes are directly from the game's counter-part, Devil Kings. 
I did not buy the game nor was I the one who wrote them. It was actually my
cousin. I went through some of the quotes and it seems many of Sengoku's quotes
were translated in English as well... but not all of them. There are still some
quotes from Sengoku Basara that were left out. Moreover, there are many added
quotes in Devil Kings (as I noticd in the quotes) and some lines were changed a
bit. 

  If Capcom really changed the other game completely then why did they keep 
most of the quotes?! I think they will sound like "DUH!" 

To make a long story short, if you did not buy the game (Devil Kings) and you
are wondering what they are saying then take a look. I will take out the quotes
that are not in Sengoku Basara once my cousin completes this section 
completely. It is still not complete yet. BIG thanks to my cousin for  
doing this AND for changing the English names to the Japanese ones for us. It 
seems Motonari is now saying "sun" out loud! Sun... just like that! Poor 
Capcom! ^_^

- Now's the time. GO!
- What in the! Love birds on the battle field!
- Heh! Sure. I'll let them know you're soon coming. 
- You guys aren't bad. I'll give you that much!
- This party is getting wild.

  handle!
- Your head, my spear. Let's make it happen.
- You will soon realize the true might of my lord.
- I can't fall and allow my lord to to danger.
- You'd be wise not to hold back.
- You would dare attack Yukimura unit!

- For the greater glory of my lord!

- My lord rules all!
- My lord has taught me well!

- I am Yukimura! Destroyer of troops!
- EEEHHH! This is getting me fired up!
- I salute you for your fighting skills! Not that they were enough to beat me,
  of course!
- You're quite the warrior!
- I have failed you, my... lord!
- Your doom stands in front of you! 
- The name's Yukimura. Prepare for battle!
- One step closer to ultimate victory!
- Remember my face well! It will be the last thing you'll ever see!
- I must be on guard! Kenshin is not to be taken lightly!
- I'm here to represent my lord in battle!
- What manner of trick is this!
- My lord spoke highly of you, Kenshin! So don't expect me to hold anything 
  back!
- Feel my lord's wrath!
- I've got nothing to fear from those pea-shooters!
- CHAAAAARGE!

- There's something very strange about this place.
- Fire Wheel.
- I must not fear... fear brings death. For I am SANADA YUKIMURA.
- Ahh, so this is the infamous machinist's castle!
- I have to admit, your machines were impressive.
- COME OUT! Wherever you are!
- Yoshihiro, honor me with this battle.
- Should I bring a date to the battlefield next time too?!
- A couple on the battlefield! Are you insane?!
- I'm eager to serve you, my lord.
- Even the great Nobunaga's head will hang on this spear if he dares to stand
  in way of lord Shingen.
- I sense incredible power, and it's giving me a rush!
- A present from my lord.
- I've served under a good man. That's more than I can say for you.
- This won't be easy. I need to be on my guard.
- I've finally found you! PRAY TO YOUR GODS!
- No warrior would ever turn his back to another!
- I have nothing to fear from a warrior with no soul.
- Guns and the sea. This can't get any better.
- You'll be eating spear before you even have a chance to knock on that gate.
- Even this cold is not enough to put out my fire.
- Say goodbye to your precious castle.
- Ha! The gate's open.
- I'll put the very castle walls down if I have to.

- By the will of Bishamonten!
- The Gods will carry me to glory!
- It is my divine mission!
- As long as breath still passes my lips, THIS CASTLE WILL NOT FALL!
- You'll soon sleep peacefully!
- Soon you will be the proud lord of a pile of rubble!
- A wind is blowing! A fierce wind!
- You should leave before my sword ends up in your chest!
- Things are going our way!
- This should be a breeze! Oh well, maybe not quite that easy!
- I sense a lot of blood will be spilled this day!
- It is our fate to walk in the darkness! 
- Climb the mountain and come to me!
- Go forth, my percious black widow!
- Heh! Even if you are my enemy, I must admire you!
- Heaven or hell, it's for my God to decide! EEHHH!
- Bishamonten! With your strength the land is now one!

- They've done well to make it this far!
- Oh just move! I don't have time to play with you!
- Did you really think you could kill me?! Hmph!
- The heavens will always rule the earth!
- Welcome death! For it shall free you from fighting!
- Bishamonten is with me!
- Bishamonten smiles upon us!
- Let the Gods decide your fate!
- Do your worst, but this victory is already mine!
- No! My angel of the blade!
- What kind of man thrives on fear and chaos!
- Much appreciated!
- Keep your wits about you...
- I better do something quick!
- Disembark... this battle is on land!
- I will not stray from the destiny the Gods have given me!
- Perfect timing! FOLLOW ME!
- The time has come!
- Not good!
- Amazing! This is what the machinist is capable of!
- It pains me to even have to look at you!
- Dead spirits, fly to your Gods!
- I can feel something watching us!
- I'm on a mission for my God. Forgive me!
- Oh! A couple on the battlefield! How sweet!
- This time I'll make sure that man dies!
- You don't understand anything, you poor ignorant fool!
- With divine protection, we will not fall!
- Let's see if the power of the dragon is enough to best me!
- Yes! It's too bad the former lord is not around anymore!
- Back to hell, foul evildoer!
- A little kid in battle! Poor thing... 
- I'm afraid now it's time for your fire to burn out!
- You can run, but I will catch you!
- This is the power of Bishamonten.
- Everyone is noble in death!
- DIIEEE!
- Shin Zan (God Slash)!
- Divine cut!
- You'd better back down if you know what's good for you, boy!
- Step aside... you're in the way!
- Another Ninja! Still... you're nothing compared to mine!
- I'm the only one who can put a stop to you!
- The heavens are with me!
- This land is perfect for your grave!
- Stand aside, this victory belongs to me!
- Divine Flurry!
- DIVINE SPEED!
- I only do what my Gods ask me to!

- Hehehe! I won't disappoint you!
- I'll make sure you'll rule all of this!
- Okay! Let's get this over with!
- If you think you can have your way, think again!
- Hehehe! I'll show you!
- Underestimating a woman will hurt you!
- Ahhh! Isn't he a cutie!
- Don't take it personally all right?!
- Pirates!! I will teach them not to mess with the lady!
- This is all too easy, but why should I complain!
- Those of you with a death wish... come forth!
- What! This isn't happening!
- What a stress reliever! I should do this more often!
- You'll have to get through me!
- I don't have time to waste on you!
- Forgive me, lord... ahhh, I couldn't... aaaahhh!
- So sorry to have kept you waiting! Shall we begin?!
- For your victory, my lord!
- Now all is yours, my lord. Heaven and earth under your rule!
- You'll have to get through me. Prepare to die, fools!
- I won't die this easily!
- Whaddaya know! Fool!
- Hahaha! I'll show you!
- You seriously think you can rule!
- This is where you will end!
- No one shall live to see tomorrow!
- Haha... I'll show you.
- I'll show you who's in control.
- Pretty, ha?! 
- Feeling better?!
- Why you! This is not a place for a child. There's no playground here. Go 
  home!
- How old things fade with time.
- You seriously think you can rule?!
- I won't let you have your way. Be prepared to face me.
- Gooood night!
- You're mine!
- Up you go!
- NEXT!
- My men you'v killed will greet you in hell.
- This is all for you, my lord.
- How dare you disobey my lord?!
- Are you ready for me?!
- Heheheh... you'll never understand.
- Wonderful. FORWARD!
- Reinforcements! We have a chance.
- YES!
- You! You want to rule the world? Hehehe. I laugh in your face!
- You can't run forever!
- My lord...
- The young warrior is mine!
- The man you so admire, he'll never rule. But I guess you're too wrapped up to
  even see it, boy. 
- Will I be able to beat this man?! I haven't a choice, do I now?!
- A beast awaits... I will tame him.
- Here I come!
- Their fangs shall shatter today.
- I can already feel my blood rushing.
- What an ugly looking castle. I can't stand this place.
- Whatever you have up your sleeve. I'm ready.
- I'll show you how a real woman fights.
- Impressive castle... but not for long.
- It wasn't all that bad. For your victory, my lord!

|_____________________________________________________________________________|

- Young fools! I will teach you the true meaning of fear!
- Your strategy is inferior. Mine is not.
- Spill your last blood if you have to. Just stop them at any cost.
- Ahh! Not too shabby!
- Prepare to battle Takeda Shingen! Today is not your day, is it?! I'm too much
  to handle!
- I thought all the best warriors were in my army!
- Everyone follow me!
- Feel free to run away anytime!
- The earth tremples at every stomp of Shingen's feet!
- Bawahahaha! Keep it coming!
- TAAAAAKE THHHHIS!
- Half man, half bull, and immortal!
- Prepare to feel the full force of Shingen!
- I will sweep through you like the raging wildfire!
- The journey has begun!
- I must fight if I want to win!
- Crush your fear! ADVAAAANCE!
- Young fools! You would dare try to take me on!
- Hah-hah! Maybe this age is ready for fresh blood!
- If you were born in a different age, you'd live to see tomorrow!
- There's no escape!
- That throne is as good as mine!
- Body by body! I rise to the throne!
- Only the strong'll servive.
- Hahaha! HAHAHA! Everything is under my RULE!
- What the hell is a little girl doing on the battlefield?! Am I seeing
  things?!
- Your strategy is inferior. Mine is not!
- I am Takeda... the invincible!
- WAAAAAARGGGGGHHHHHH!
- Look Yukimura... the throne... we... did it...
- Only one of us shall live to see the morning!
- Prepare to feel Shingen's cavalry stampede!
- Well played!
- We must hold out!
- We'll see if your big mouth is telling the truth!
- Hahahaha! Come to your death at my hand, fools!
- Hmmm... what are peasants doing on the battlefield?!
- Yukimura's troops are in formation. Heh, we aren't known as the best for
  nothing.
- I shall spread across the lands like wildfire.
- Hmph! What a rediculous looking fairy tale castle!
- I... will not... die...
- Burn... WAAAAAAAGHHHH! That throne is mine.
- Another one down.
- Might be useful.
- This land will soon bow down to my might.
- It's either you... or me...
- Even the sun and the moon wax and wane, so too does our luck.
- Hoho! You are quite the Ninja.
- A husband and wife on the battlefield? How quaint...
- Heh! Lovers on the battlefield? Yare yare...
- Tokugawa, where are you hiding?!
- Hah-ha! There you are, Ieyasu. Be a good man and let me by, for your sake.
- I have come to repay you for your treachery.
- Ahh! You dare attack the castle of Takeda Shingen!
- Perhaps it's time to resort to the backup plan.
- It's too quiet. They're up to something.
- Truly magnificent! I've enjoyed this!
- Mitsuhide is far more dangerous than anyone realizes.
- You're not an easy man to read.
- With that one, the very ground is not safe to tread on.
- A sand castle?! Isn't that what children make?
- I'll teach a boy to get in a man's way.
- Swift like the wind. There's no escape.
- The gate is down. CHAAAAARGE!
- To escape is just another option for warriors.
- Hahaha! I will rule everything.
- Now is the moment of truth.

- Come out and fight like men! Man, it's hot here!
- Let's go! ATTTTAAAACK!

- This Ranmaru will have your head!
- RUUUN! FLEEEE! Hehehe-hah-heh!
- Wow! What a move!
- Don't press your luck!
- All I ever wanted was for you to be proud of me!
- Ranmaru is here! I'll sting you good!
- Your a little too cocky for your own age, if you ask me!
- Oh, it's a tough battle!
- You'r not getting away!
- Absolutely!
- This should be a breeze! Leave it to Ranmaru!
- I hope you're watching, master!
- If you want to see Nobunaga-sama, first you have to deal with me!
- I promised master, that I'd conquer!
- My strength... M... MASTERRRR!
- Lord Nobunaga! It looks like they have got one heck of a weapon!
- How do you like that one!
- Take this!
- The leader's head's mine!
- Reinforcements! That's our master. Always perpared.
- Lord Nobunaga! Do your best!
- Nobunaga-sama, that's enough!
- Lord Nobunaga, did you see me in action?!
- No problem! I'll defend it!
- Anyone who gets in my way, can simply die!
- Huh... THEEERE!
- ALRIGHT!
- Gotcha!
- A child! Huh! I'll boot your pudsy little butt right back to the fields.
- What a castle! I want it!
- Hey, Mr. Shingen... kneel before my lord!
- Hey, mister with the nice hairdo! Would you mind getting out of my way?!
- We have the advantage! Let it ride!
- I'm not afraid of you!
- You think you can win just by being a horseback?!
- Tokugawa, this is where you'll fall.
- Ahhh! It's a tough battle. 
- Master, we get to exterminate these old rats finally right?!
- Ranmaru'll getcha!
- How dare you defy my master! You fool!
- The castle's going down sooner or later.
- How dare you betray my lord!
- BLEH! It's the ugliest castle if I ever saw one! Who'd want this anyway! 
- Huh! You don't scare me, old man! I'll hurt you bad!
- I'm wondering what kind of country it is!
- Ranmaru is on his way!
- God of War! Huh! What a joke!
- Oh just great! A blonde with an attitude! YUCK!
- Oh! This guy makes me lose my rhythm!
- Are we losing?!

- Itsuki to the rescue!
- I'll return peace to the land!
- Everybody ready?!
- Without strength, we can't win! 
- One by one... You'll all fall!
- We will win!
- I hate being forced to do this!
- What's happening?! We're supposed to be winning!
- If you don't take this battle seriously, you will regret it!
- Do your best to send them away!
- Run away! Leave this to me!
- Look at all the pretty horses!
- Stop picking on me!
- Thank you for the support!
- Keep up the good fight!
- We should be home by dinner!
- Nature (God) shall take back what's hers!
- Peace has returned!
- Another pretty fool playing war! We're not are gonna take that, are we?!
- Too bad you're not used to blizzards like we are!
- Wow! Look at the happy couple!
- We must rid the land of every last one of them!
- More of them are on the way!
- There's still a chance to save the gate!
- Oh no! I forgot to raise the drawbridge!
- We're going all out!
- La-la-laaa... OHH! Looks like someone needs to be taught a lesson!
- I can't die when people need me the most!
- I don't want to run, but I have no choice!
- What was that?!
- Do you feel no pity for the people you use?!
- You're about to feel the people's anger!
- We must not lose this battle!
- With our combined strength, we can't lose!
- This is what happens in war...
- Throw down your arms!
- I'm... finished...
- How dare you trample our fields!
- Our suffering will end soon. Don't give up now!
- What's that, little kid! Huh! You probably don't even know what you're 
  fighting for! Poor thing.
- What a hideous castle!
- Thank you!
- You're a real charmer. (sarcastic)
- War never begets peace.
- Everything is fine. Hah-ha! My God... rest assured!
- People, lend me your strength.
- Look out!
- WOO-WHOO!
- I'm not out yet!
- We must not lose this fight!
- It's raosting here! I wanna go home...
- I have a bad feeling about this...
- DRIVE THROUGH!
- Your existence is a sin against nature.
- Your people have been oppressed for far too long.
- Your horrible crimes against nature will not go unpunished.
- Even the children must suffer in war.
- I can sense the fear in your eyes. Neither of us wants to be fighting in this
  battle.
- The commoners must rise up against people like you.
- You should've chose a different path. The one you are on leads to death.
- O-oh! The big bad warrior! Is this where I'm supposed to run away and be a 
  good little peasant?!
- Here we go!
- I've heard rumors about an invincible warrior in these parts...
- While you stare at the sky, us commoners are stuck staring at the earth doing
  the real work.
- You hide, I'll seek.
- So, it's well defended. Big deal!
- I don't care how good you might be. War is wrong.
- Never underestimate the common people.
- That huge castle was built on the backs of your people.
- It looks like someone needs to be taught a lesson!
- Let's get going then!
- I ain't here to play. I'm serious, old lady. And I hope you are too.
- Get the H-E-L-L out of here. Your love means nothing to us.
- It looks like you and I have a different of opinion.

- Ahhh (sigh). I suppose I should get to work.
- Mmmm! Not bad at all!
- See! I still have a few tricks up my sleeve.
- What did you expect from a Ninja?! Guess I better get to it!
- Relax! I know we're both tired of this bloodshed so stop pretending to be the
  warrior.
- Off I go!
- Consider yourself dead!
- Shouldn't you be running away about now?!
- Aaaa-aaaah!
- What are you guys doing?! I can't watch this!
- It's too bad! Friends only in combat!
- Just so you understand, it's nothing personal!
- Hmph! I might actually be in trouble here!
- Sorry! It's just a job!
- I can't die! Not like this! Sorry!
- I'm a shadow you should never turn your back on!
- Oh! Looks like I've got a work to do!
- Hhhh! A bit too chilly for my taste!
- After all this I deserve a vacation!
- Ohh, not bad... NOT BAD AT ALL!!
- I knew you could do it!
- What did you expect from a Ninja?!
- Lookie here! Another fool came to say hello!
- Sorry! Nobody opened the door when I knocked!
- Heh, rain... an ambush! Could this get any better!
- Wow! Things just got a little more interesting!
- What the hell are you doing?!
- The gate's not looking so hot!
- Hhhh! How pathetic!
- Hardly even worthy of my skills!
- Looks like I should be getting to work!
- It looks like my job is done!
- Heh! Time to join this petty battle!
- My, my...
- Hmmm! That's not good!
- Awee... too bad!
- Haha, that's a castle?! You've gotta be kidding me.
- C'mon! This will be the last thing you'll ever see. 
- Not bad, eh?!
- I can't die! Not like this!
- Lovin' it.
- Sorry, love is not in my contract.
- I sense something...
- Bull's Eye!
- Flare!
- He's too dangerous to let live. I will stop him here.
- Hardly even worthy of my skills.
- Guess I better get to it!
- Lurking Shadow! 
- What a castle! This is what I live for.
- Oh! I'd hate to stand between a Ninja and her orders.
- Nice timing. Now can I go home early?!
- I had to do it.
- You're making this a lot more trouble than it has to be.
- Come on over.
- I'm sorry, but it's my job to kill all of you.
- HOOOAWAAH! Multiply.
- Guess I should be heading off.
- Doesn't look like we can be friends, does it?!
- OH NICE!
- Why make things harder by running?!
- Oh, nice place! Maybe I should move.
- Maybe I should sit down, have a drink and enjoy the view.
- A couple on the field of battle! Hmph, this is new.
- Your reign will soon end, Oda Nobunaga.
- Hmph! I feel sorry for you.
- Sorry. A job's a job, and Takeda Shingen wants you dead.
- Looks like my job is done.
- Don't complain. Fooling is a perfectly acceptable strategy.
- Hm! I smell gunpowder... cannons.
- I hope I don't have to run into "him."
- Haah! Off I go. Lookie here! Another fool came to say hello!

- Ohh! I can't stop shaking!
- Oh no! This won't do it all!
- Ohhh, I'm feeling a little loosy!
- Hmmm, so this is the color of my own blood!
- Ohhh! More victims! How exciting!
- Hehehe! I'm going to be sad to see you pass from this world!
- This looks like a blast!
- You seem to enjoy this as much as I do!
- Now this... this is a bloodbath!

- Ironic that I'll be sending Nobunaga himself to hell!
- I hope you're enjoying yourself, Nobunaga. I know I am. Hahah-ha-haha!
- Heha-hah! You can squirm in fear now.
- Oh! I wish I could do that (sarcasim)!
- This has all been a joke...
- You still don't get it, do you little boy?! You're nothing more than his
  entertainer!
- Death is so much interesting than life.
- Oh... sweet Nou-hime. I suggest you fly away this minute. Why fly into fire?!
- Oh! It's looks like I'm done for (sarcasim)!

- Huh! More non-believers to chastise!
- Some good lovin'... comin' atcha!
- Fall us, or fall into death!

- My heart is my guide!
- You don't deserve my forgiveness... you deserve death!
- Follow us... or fall into death!
- Faith shall prevail!
- You've passed through my Love Gate.
- Oh! You reject my love?! How sad...

- Our cause grows stronger.
- Death knocks on the doors of the non-believers.
- Great device... watch over me.

- Can you see the light?!
- The beautiful must be made to believe.
- THE GREAT DEVICE PUNISHMENT!
- How glorious! You will make such a wonderful new believer!
- It's time to test your faith. Choose life or choose death. I suggesta life.
- I will open your heart and guide you to the light, okay?!
- Ahh! The Great Device's love washes over this land!
- What a fabulous island paradise.
- Even Nobunaga himself shall feel the love of the Great Device.
- You're definitely in need of a little faith healing!
- The wilderness must be tamed with mechanical grace.
- Have faith. 
- Ahh, but the ones that reject my love are the ones that need it the most.
- I am blessed.
- I will restore faith to the world. The Great Device has ordained it.

  whopping!

  bigger house!
- Is that the best you've got?! Do you not fight for something?!
- We all fight for something or someone! 
- Matus! When's dinner?! :(

|_____________________________________________________________________________|

- I can't die yet.
- Kasuga is rising.
- I'm always at your aid.
- Fighting for someone you care about... I know all too well what that's like.
- It's time to fight back!
- Get out of my way!
- Go home! I don't feel like fighting you!
- I will complete my mission!
- Fools! You can't understand when you're beaten!
- I fight for a worthy cause!
- I'm a human weapon.
- Looks like this battle is ours!
- If you want Kenshin, you'll have to go through me!
- Like a glory!
- I have performed well!
- I live to serve!
- I'm always at your command!
- To die and sacrifice... there's no better way!
- You'd still have a head if you'd of backed off!
- Watch me good to action!
- You know you'll never beat me!
- Huh! I must show my resolve!
- I will die if it protects that which I hold so dear!
- Why do you even bother!
- You had better run if you know what's good for you!
- Once I kill you, this bloodshed will end!
- I must live to see him one more time!
- If this is what I have to do, then it's what I have to do!
- I'm sure lord Kenshin will be pleased!
- It's over! Now lord Kenshin shall rule this land!
- He's not in here (Kenshin). I will protect him at any cost! I have something
  improtant to protect.
- I hope... I served you well... Kenshin-sama!
- He's coming...
- All Kenshin thinks about is you, I have to admit that I'm jealous!
- What a horrible place! I hope we can leave soon!
- Ready!
- For glory!
- This is all going according to his plan!
- Tadakatsu must fall before he meets lord Kenshin.
- I hope someday I can be like those two!
- I'm so jealous of you two... so jealous!
- I will take on Nobunaga himself if I have to!
- Back down! I have something dear to protect!
- Out of my way!
- It's because of people like you so many people suffered!
- I sense something! A TRAP!
- Are you willing to drag all of your followers to their deaths for your 
  precious dream?!
- I'm gonna get you!
- There's something wrong about this place!
- You will never make it to lord Kenshin!
- What did you do to yourself!
- You refuse to submit! Are you really so eager for death!
- Even if it's the last thing I do, I must kill that man!
- It appears the tibes have turned for our fate!
- I've pledged my services to him.
- I'm sure I will earn favor when I take this castle down!
- Even the peasants are fighting... they must have a death wish!
- Please tell me what you need done?!
- Time to fall back!
- It's time to fight back!
- I'm sorry we couldn't... be together... 
- GO!
- You won't get away with this!
- I will carry out his great plan to the end!
- Alright then.
- You won't get away with this.
- Why do you sell your soul to the evildoer?!

- Tadakatsu... Attack Mode!
- We finally made it right to the throne.
- NOW, TADAKATSU!
- Show them what you are made of!
- Electromagnet, Tadakatsu!

- This is not looking good. FALL BACK!

- C'mon guys, let's get some of our own!
- Itsuki, the rest... is up to you.
- Mitsuhide... that sick and sadistic individual he is!
- WAAAAH... TADAKATSU!
- They still have yet to unite. Get them while we still have time.
- Extraordinary my lord.
- No matter, so long as the gate stands. WHAT! The gate has been destroyed!!!
- He's Nobunaga's aide. We mustn't underestimate him.
- Help us, your Highness!
- It's been 7 moons since we began to flood their land. The castle should have
  gone down by now.
- Enemy ships approaching.
- C'mon guys. Let's get some of our own.
- This castle will burn before you sit on its throne.
- The enemy is nothing we need to fear. WHAT! They are already at the gate!
- That's one hell of a gate. Let's blow it into pieces, my lord.
- Off to hell you go.
- Poor misguided and unloved souls.
- Thankya, thankya. 
- I see millions... of beautiful butterflies.
- I've heard tales of Yoshihiro's impeccable ways of ambush.
- The Great Device is with you.

  As I said above, the list is not complete yet. My cousin will try to complete
it within a week and will send it to me and I will update the F.A.Q. then with 
the updated list. ^_^

  All I can say, I hope the other game will be as good as Sengoku Basara or 
even better. It deserves the best. But well, I do think the English voice
actors/actresses will have difficulties with Motochika, Masamune, Sasuke, 
Mitsuhide and Kenshin. It is hard to voice these characters, especially
Motochika. The accent, and the way Ishino sounds when he shuts up the opponents
and his own army, the emotions... the SPEAKING VOICE... it is not an easy job 
for W.Vs (no offense).

  Well, I just hope for them the best. And I hope the English voice actor will
sound as cool as Ishino or even better. I doubt it though, not in million 
years. ^_^ Oh and I did not say Tokugawa/Okawa and Zabii/Shioya, because it is
impossible and I am sure of it even if I haven't played Devil Kings yet (and 
not planning to). ^_^

18. Sengoku Basara & Devil Kings Differences:
---------------------------------------------
  For those who haven't bought the counter-part game. You can read here to know
what are the differences and then decide if you want to buy it or not. Thanks 
to cousin again for the details from Devil Kings since I know SQUAT about it.

  That's about it, fellas. ^_^

  If anything is wrong, E-Mail me. Maybe cousin was drunk with some of the 
details. I have yet to play the game to confirm the Devil Kings side, not 
really planning to, unfortunately. Due to new fighting games and so, I can
hardly have time to update the F.A.Q. 

  I actually went through the voice cast and I saw Cathy Weseluk in one of
the names. A fine choice, I must say. That is 100% instant win to the character
she will be voicing. That goes to Paul Dobson as well, but he is getting rusty
nowadays, so I have my doubts. My surprise was Kirby Morrow and Lan James 
Corlett!!!!!!!!! And here is another!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, that is like Capcom
doing &%#@ UP MASAMUNE AND MOTOCHIKA NO JUTSU!

  There you have it. If anything is wrong, just send me an E-Mail. Hope there
will be some respect for the hard work. I hope it was of any good use to you, 
gamers. I really do!

  This is pretty much it. I will upload a Max Drive save later on. Just for 
those who deleted their completed files by mistake or if you do not have time
and want everything unlocked. I will stop updating the F.A.Q. since it is very
much complete. Besides, I have to focus on new fighting games (N.G.B.C. & 
Samurai Spirits: Tenkaichi Kenkaku Den) at the Arcades. Nothing like pure, 
sweet and fun fighting games. ^_^

  Well, it seems the F.A.Q. is getting out of my hands. I will add the weapon
stats for each character and THAT'S IT! This was supposed to be a boss F.A.Q. 
after all. And well... people will move on to the US version and leave this 
F.A.Q. rest in peace. It will become useless and most of the people will write
much better F.A.Qs for the US version. I hope one of you guys will have the 
time to tell me if it is any good since I do not follow the news at all. Ahem,
not even planning on trying it. ^_^

  Treat your fellas the way you want them to treat you, okay? Now, you do not 
want Mr. Geese to get angry and perform Raising Storm, do you? ^_^
