    06.) Gameplay Basics..................................[NUCBASICS]
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Health - This is simple enough. It hits zero and you're toast, although as your
             Health goes down, you can harness Kyuubi's (The Nine-Tailed Fox's)
             power. You can use Virtue to increase your Health under Abilities
             in the Start Menu
    
    Stamnia - Focusing and restoring your Chakra takes up your Stamnia, but it can
              be replenished by finding and picking up blue orbs. You can use
              Virtue to increase your Stamina under Abilities in the Start Menu
    
    Kyuubi (Nine-Tailed Fox) Gauge - This bar will grow redder and redder as you
                                     combo and smack around your enemies. When your
                                     Health gets low enough, you can press Circle
                                     and Triangle together to become Kyuubi Naruto.
                                     Your stamina will be unlimited, so jutsu your
                                     little heart out.
    
    Virtue - This is earned for defeating enemies and complete various missions.
             Collect the yellow Virtue Orbs after an enemy dies to earn Virtue.
             Virtue is used to purchase Skill Chips
    
    Skill Chips - These are used to raise your stats and give your other abilities.
                  We will discuss these in a later section of this guide.
    
    Treasure Hunting - Always search each level for treasure chests, as good things
                       come to those that search. I included this under the basics
                       as free stuff is always a good thing

    MISSION 005: Sensei for a Day
    
    RANK: C
    
    OBJECTIVE: Due to the number of incidents recently, many Academy instructors
               are busy with missions. Graduates are being sought to fill in while
               the teachers are out and help train the younger students. You have
               four minutes to locate twelve charms while not letting Konohamaru
               bite the big one. I would suggest running after said charms,
               covering the brat when needed. Looking head on from the entrance,
               this tends to be the quicker of paths:
               Turn west and find the Tiger Charm on the wall. Turn north and go
               straight to the Dog Charm, and then go east to get the Dragon Charm.
               Go west young Naruto and get the Boar Charm off the stump, following
               the ramp afterwards to get the Rabbit Charm. The Snake Charm is on
               the ground to the north. Now heading east, you will find the Rat
               Charm up in a tree and the Monkey Charm on a stump just east of the
               Rat Charm. Head south from here to find the Ox Charm in a crevice
               in the wall. Follow the northeast path towards the entrance finding
               the Rooster and Horse Charms along said path. Find the island with
               a ninja on it and get the Sheep Charm. This should do it, so head
               back to the entrance. Here Neji is waiting to spring a trap on you.

    BOSS: NEJI HYUUGA
    
    SKILLS: Eight Trigrams Palm Rotation (Deals good damage if you are close enough
            to be caught in it and lessens damage to himself if you attack him)
            Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms (Deals pretty heavy damage)
            Kunais and Chakra-infused shuriken (Just keep moving)
    
    The best strategy is to play keep away from him, by bombarding him with your
    weapons. He is a Taijutsu user, so his moves have to be close range.

               those who buy the doll inevitably seem to meet with misfortune.
               Gather the dolls and investigate the rumor. Kakashi will accompany

               by the prisoner's comrades are expected. Be careful... Form a two

    the pain that is Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms. If for some reason you didn't

    Head for the red dot and meet up with Sakura. She is, of course, looking for
    Sasuke. Let's help her and look for treasure all at the same time.
    
    BATTLE ONE: Don't bother with the ninjas here. Just find the treasure chests
                and make for the exit
    
    BATTLE TWO: There are several treasure chests to be found here, but beware, as
                most have bear traps around them. Dispatch of the enemy and get
                out of here
    
    BATTLE THREE: More a battle of wits. After going through the first set of
                  pillars, watch the shadows on the ground. Follow the one that is
                  not like the others
    
    Save at the floating scroll, get the treasure chest off to the right, and head
    to the next area. There are two chests in this area and stay out of the shadows
    cause of falling boulders. Save, because you're about to throw down with one
    mean medic ninja

    He'll start the battle by hanging back and healing himself. Watch out for an
    underground technique, if you get too close. Hang back though, and he'll start
    with the healing himself again. Rasangen and weapon him to death. This seems
    to work for me

               metal from the Hidden Leaf Village to Tanzaku Town. This is another

    *******************************************************************************
    
    BOSS: SASUKE UCHIHA
    
    SKILLS: Mission 009
    
    He starts things off with a Chidori. How surprising... Weapons are more or less
    useless in this battle, so go with the Shadow Clones and the Rasengan for the
    win. Ok, in some cases, you will have to fight Curse Mark Sasuke. He's
    basically the same, only quite a bit stronger. I would suggest using Kyuubi
    Naruto if you get this fight.

               with historic value. Go to the Villa where the jars are kept and
               serve as security. Use Shikamaru's Shadow Possession and Naruto's 
               Shadow Clones to your advantage. The doors can take some damage, but
               like you, the mission is over if the doors reach zero energy.

               deliver it to the waiting Trader. The oil is highly flammable, so be
               sure to watch out for fire during battle. You can handle a cart

    OBJECTIVE: A wanted ninja has been captured in Border Town. Take the prisoner
               into custody and escort him to the Hidden Leaf Village. It's highly
               likely that the prisoner's comrades will attack, so stay on the

                near the Hidden Sand Village, meet up with your contact inside, and
                investigate the Sand's activity. Shikamaru will accompany you. The
                first trail to the Castle is a long one. Find the treasures, break
                the wall before you, and follow the Hidden Leaf post into the next
                area. The roof area is a straightforward path to the next area. In
                here, jump the platforms. Watch out for traps and the tricky chests
                in this area. Head out the window and into the next area. Just
                collect the treasures here and head up the stairs. Save and get
                ready for a cranky Jinchuriki.

            Home Run Swing (Knocks you in the air and hits you on the way down)

    Fire element weaponry (which you should have a few to choose from by now) and
    Neji are the key to taking these overgrown garden bugs out. Do not stay close
    for long and watch out for the long range stuff, but it's easy to dodge once
    you see it coming. That means trying to keep them in your sights (or should
    I say camera) at all times

    OBJECTIVE: The Anbu pursued Kabuto and located Orochimaru's hideout. However,
               green mist has broken out near the village, and damage is already
               spreading. Take over Orochimaru's hideout and bring an end to this
               dreadful plot!! The way through this level is pretty cut and dry,
               except for one split path that goes forward and to your left. I
               say go straight first and get all the treasures your grubby, little
               mitts can handle. After handling this area, there should be another
               fork in the road. Go left if you just want to save and fight the
               bosses, or go right if you want more treasure. Regardless, save (as
               this is the finale) and go forth, receiving Kakashi AND Sasuke. I,
               myself would save Kakshi for the end as he's your powerhouse

    throw down, so have at them!!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Follow the path and Karin has come to save the day. Buy plenty of Health items

    The guy definitely has speed on his side. I would suggest using weapons that
    knock down (Like Twin-Edged Kunai and Fire Kunai), pummeling him with Shadow
    Clones, and chargin Rasengan right as he starts to get up. Charge too long and
    he will bolt away. It may be just me, but I do believe he gets faster as his
    health drops. Using Kakashi and Sasuke are okay, but in the end, the well
    balanced nature of the main character wins out. Enjoy your Cutscene/Credits/
    Cutscene combo, as you have definitely earned it.
