  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   1. Introduction
  WORINTRO                   \_______________________________________________


Warriors Orochi is basically a what-if game.  It asks the question, "What if 
the warriors from the Three Kingdoms Era in China met up with the warriors 
from the Sengoku Era in Japan?"  To make this possible, they made Orochi the 
focus of the game.  Orochi, in Japanese mythology, is a powerful snake demon.  
In this game, he has the power to bend time and reality, fusing the two eras 
together in order to show off his power before the greatest warriors from two 
eras known for their great battles and fierce fighters.  Warriors Orochi 
features every character from Dynasty Warriors 5 and Samurai Warriors 2, 
along with two new characters for this game, Orochi and Da Ji.  In this game 
is a new special attack system and a new team system, allowing you to choose 
a team of three warriors from both eras to fight together through various 
stages, also from the other two games.

The only thing I can think of adding right now would be the special attacks 
of each character.  I don't think I will do complete move lists for each 
character because there are a lot.  I could simply copy and paste them from 
my two older guides, but because they are formatted different, I think this 
would be more of a hassle than just starting from scratch, which I don't have 
time for.

  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   2. The Basics of Battle
  WORBASIC                   \_______________________________________________


Warriors Orochi, like just about every other game in the Warriors series, is 
a hack and slash game.  This time around, you bring three fighters in your 
team instead of just one to the battlefield.  Also, this time around, you 
have powerful special attacks that you can rely on.  There are three types of 
characters in this game.  The types and differences between the three are 
listed below.

Also introduced in this game is the team concept.  You have one character 
that you control, while your other two characters are not on screen.  
However, you can switch to those characters any time you want, provided you 
are not on a horse or in the middle of getting attacked.  Characters that are 
not active are considered to be resting and will regain their Life Bar and 
Musou Bar.

  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   2a. Controller Setup/Move Notations
  WORBACON                   \_______________________________________________


----------------
Controller Setup
----------------

If you have played any of the Dynasty Warriors or Samurai Warriors games, 
then you should know the basic controller setup.  The only major difference 
in this game is the fact that you can switch characters using different 
buttons.

There are two types of controller settings.  The default is Type A, which 
allows you to switch characters using the L2/R2 buttons.  The second setting 
is Type B, which allows you to switch characters using the Directional Pad.

Left Analog Stick:  Moves character
Right Analog Stick:  Rotates camera
Directional Pad:  Character switch in Type B setting

Square:  Normal attack
Triangle:  Charge attack
Circle:  Musou attack
X:  Jump/Mount or dismount horse

L1:  Guard/Strafe/Reset camera
R1:  Special attack
L2/R2:  Character switch in Type A setting
R3:  Toggle mini map

SELECT:  Whistles for horse
START:  Pauses game

(Note:  I personally use the L2 button on my controller as my guard button
    because it is easier for me to hit L2 than it is to hit L1.  Therefore,
    if in this guide, you see me say the L2 button, odds are, I'm talking
    about blocking.  I don't think it comes up, but just in case, I don't
    want to confuse anyone.)


--------------
Move Notations
--------------

These are all the move notations that I will use throughout this guide, along 
with some explanations of some terms that is used throughout the game.

S:  This stands for the square button on the controller.

T:  This stands for the triangle button on the controller.

S String:  This is the regular attack combo of general.

Charge #/C#:  This indicates a specific charge attack.  The number indicates
   what type of charge attack it is.  For example, a C1 would be an attack
   where you just press T.  A C4 would be an attack where you press SSST.
   For tiered charge attacks, they would be indicated with a C#-#.  The first
   number is what type of charge attack while the second number indicates
   what tier of the charge attack it is.  Therefore, a C2-3 would be where
   you would press STTT.

Jump Charge:  This is performed by pressing triangle while in midair.

Special Attack:  If you press the R1 button, you will perform a special move.
   For Power characters, this will be only one powerful move.  For Speed
   characters, pressing this button will perform one special move, while
   pressing this button while moving the left analog stick will perform a
   different special move.  For Technique characters, you can hit the special
   move button to replace your Charge attacks and also hit the button to
   counter enemy attacks.  Special thanks to KWMrHonda for finding errors in
   this section.

Back Flip:  When you are knocked into the air, you can back flip and land on
   your feet by pressing the guard button at the right moment.  There is a
   certain bit of timing involved, but the window of opportunity is normally
   very big.  You cannot always perform a back flip when you get knocked
   down.  This can also be called a tech by some people.

Grab:  Grabs are unblockable attacks where you pick up the enemy and throw
   them in some fashion.

Musou:  This is performed by pressing the circle button when your musou bar
   is charged up completely.  The type of Musou you get is different based on
   which game series your character came from.  For Dynasty Warriors
   characters (and Da Ji), you can hold circle to perform your Musou attack
   for the duration of the time or you can release the circle button to stop
   your Musou attack.  For Samurai Warriors characters (and Orochi), if you
   hold the circle button, you will perform your Musou attack, while simply
   tapping the circle button will allow you to perform more powerful attack
   strings using your square and triangle buttons.  You cannot stop a Samurai
   Warriors character's musou in the middle of it, unless you change
   characters.

True Musou:  This is performed by pressing the circle button when your musou
   bar is charged up completely and you are low on life.  When your life bar
   turns red, your musou will become a true musou.  True musous are the same
   as a regular musou except for two differences.  The first one is that true
   musous have the fire element attached to them.  The second one is that at
   the end of your musou, your character will perform additional attacks
   automatically.

Musou Chain:  If you switch characters during a Musou attack, you cancel the
   Musou attack.  If you immediately perform a Musou attack with your new
   character, you will have performed a Musou chain.  The Musou attack
   becomes more powerful and, depending on the type of characters you
   switched out, a special element could be added onto the Musou attack.  The
   following elements can be added based on the characters:

   Multi:  2 or more Power Characters
   Agility:  2 or more Speed Characters
   Absorb:  2 or more Technique Characters
   Flash:  One character of each category

PI:  This isn't a move notation, but it's an abbreviation for Personal Item.
   I use it sometimes in this guide, so if you see it, this is what I mean.

  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   2b. Character Types
  WORBATYP                   \_______________________________________________


There are three types of characters in this game.  They are Power, Speed, and 
Technique.  The types of special attacks your characters have are based on 
these categories.  The differences are as follows:

Power:  Power characters have the Hyper Armor ability, which means that when
   they start attacking, they will not flinch due to a regular hit.  Charge
   attacks can still make a power character flinch.  Also, Power characters
   normally have one powerful special attack that drains the Musou bar.

Speed:  Most people consider Speed characters the best out of the three. 
   Speed characters normally have special attacks that do not drain the Musou
   bar at all (although some attacks do).  Also, Speed characters can perform
   the Aerial Thrust by pressing X in mid-air.  This is similar to a double
   jump in the Samurai Warriors games, except the character moves forward
   quickly.  Also, Speed characters can perform the Aerial Escape by pressing
   X in the middle of an attack, effectively canceling the attack.

Technique:  Technique characters are useful for the simple fact that they
   have the Counter Attack ability.  If you are in the middle of getting
   attacked, pressing the special attack button will allow you to perform a
   counter attack, at the cost of some of your Musou gauge.  Also, Technique
   characters can performed enhanced versions of their charge attacks by
   replacing the Triangle button with the special attack button.
   Furthermore, each character has a special attack at a certain point in
   their attack string in which, if you press the special attack button at
   that time, you will perform a whole new special attack.  Finally,
   Technique characters have the Critical Hit ability, which causes more
   damage to airborne enemies when you perform a charge attack on them.

  Warriors Orochi          \
  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   2c. General Tips
  WORBAGEN                   \_______________________________________________


Start off Slowly:  More than in any other Warriors game, the enemies in
   Warriors Orochi deal a lot of damage.  If your character isn't at a high
   enough level yet, you could find yourself easily getting poked to death
   inside of a group of regular soldiers.  It is sometimes best to advance
   with your allies, which will prevent you from getting surrounded by the
   enemy soldiers.  If you find yourself in the middle of a bunch of enemy
   soldiers, perform a charge attack or a special attack to get rid of them
   quickly.

Get Abilities Early:  Both the Vitality ability and Fortitude ability are
   must haves in the game.  If you can get both of these abilities high up
   really early, then the game will be easier.  Also, the Cavalry ability is
   a good one to get, as when your Cavalry reaches level 10, you will get
   either Red Hare or Matsukaze, based on your starting character.  Finally,
   abilities like Refill or Conserve allow you to perform your special
   attacks more often, which is always good.   

Seal off Enemy Strongholds:  If you are finding out that your allies are
   dying quickly and you can't seem to keep people alive, odds are, the
   problem is that your morale is too low.  The best way to raise morale is
   to seal off enemy strongholds.  This is the best way to keep allies alive
   longer.  You'd be surprised at how much morale you are finishing stages
   with if you seal off every stronghold you come across while you are
   completing a stage.  You don't have to go out of your way to seal off
   strongholds, but if you are in the vicinity of one, seal it off.  I don't
   mention this during my walkthroughs, but I always seal off every
   stronghold I come across, unless I'm really pressed for time.

Learn to Play Defense:  If you are a novice at the game, the best way to stay
   alive is to learn how to block and counter.  Blocking allows you to find
   openings in your enemy's attacks while preventing you from taking damage.
   If you are playing a Technique character, using their special counter
   attack ability is a great way to get out of attack chains.

Learn to Back Flip:  A back flip can save you time and allow you to
   immediately launch a counter attack on an enemy.  However, it can also
   land you right back into another one of the enemy's combos.  First, learn
   how to perform a back flip just every time you get knocked down.  Then,
   learn when to perform a back flip.  Normally, it's best not to back flip
   when you are close to an enemy, as you are in range for them to catch you
   in midair and perform another combo on you.  The window of opportunity to
   perform a back flip is very big, so it's not a hard technique to perform.

Learn the Move Sets:  Know yourself and know your enemy.  If you know your
   character's move set, you will know what move is best for what situation
   and you can quickly adapt to situations.  One move may be good for one
   situation while another move may be good for another situation.  Also, if
   you learn your character's move set, you will know what that character can
   do when you have to face that character as an enemy.  If you learn the
   openings of a character's move set, you can exploit them.  Always try to
   recognize the way a character moves when they are performing certain
   charge attacks.  Also, try to recognize what a character does when he is
   about to perform the first attack of his S string.  This way, you can
   anticipate and formulate a counter attack on the fly.

Resetting the Camera:  The right analog stick now controls the camera.  This
   can be a useful tool in the middle of a musou attack, but sometimes, it
   can be hard to use during normal attacks.  However, there is one thing you
   can do with the camera while you are attacking.  If you press the block
   button, the camera automatically defaults behind your character.  If you
   press the block button while you are attacking, you will still attack, but
   the camera will also default behind you.  This can be very useful, as the
   hit detection in this game relies on you being able to see an enemy.  If
   you cannot see an enemy on your camera, odds are, you will not hit that
   enemy, even though your attack should hit the enemy.  Resetting the camera
   behind you while you are attacking ensures that you will always hit the
   target.  I normally hit the block button about once every two regular
   attacks.

Circling the Enemy:  This is a technique that I use often when fighting
   enemy generals.  I call it circling.  When you are attacking, you are
   still able to use the left analog stick to move your character.  Whenever
   I am attacking an enemy general that is blocking, what I do is try to
   circle around the enemy while I am attacking and he is blocking.  Most
   characters with a longer move set will be able to get to the enemy
   general's back after 5 or 6 hits, leaving him vulnerable to a C8 or the
   rest of the S string.  This only works if all your attacks hit the enemy's
   block.  If an attack misses the enemy general, he will be able to reset
   his block.  To solve this problem, press the block button while you are
   moving behind the enemy.  This will ensure that the enemy general stays on
   your screen and blocks your decoy attacks while you are moving behind him.
   This works really well when you don't have the Flash element on a weapon
   yet.

  WORSTORY                   \_______________________________________________


To follow the story progressions listed below, simply follow the order.  For 
example, the first battle in the Shu storyline is Chapter 1 - Battle of Ueda 
Castle.  After that, you unlock two new stages, Chapter 2 - Battle of Hasedo 
and Chapter 2-X - Ambush at Nan Zhong.  Battle of Hasedo will unlock a third 
stage, Chapter 3 - Battle of Cheng Du, but you shouldn't finish this stage 
until you complete Ambush at Nan Zhong, if you are following the progressions 
listed below.

The Chapter 8-X for each kingdom has a special condition you must fulfill on 
Chapter 7 of the story you are on before it is unlocked.  Each kingdom has 
it's own special condition.  I have listed these as well.

Finally, each story has its own set of characters that can be unlocked.  
These characters can be from any historical kingdom and don't necessarily 
follow any order.  For purposes of this guide, I have listed the characters 
by the kingdom they are unlocked for in the game, not for the historical 
kingdom or actual category they are in.  There are five characters that are 
unlocked by different circumstances.  They are found in the Other Characters 
section of this chapter.

There are five characters that are can be unlocked.  They are not unlocked by 
fulfilling a certain set of conditions on a single stage, but rather, can be 
unlocked by fulfilling a certain set of conditions over multiple stages or 
based on your progress through the game itself.


Tadakatsu Honda:  On each of the 7-X stages of each Musou mode, fulfill a
   certain condition or set of conditions to impress Tadakatsu.  Those
   conditions are as follows:

   On Shu Chapter 7-X - Battle of Xi Liang, defeat Lu Bu within 2 minutes of
   his arrival and allow all three Peasants to escape.

   On Wei Chapter 7-X - Struggle for Nan Zhong, rescue Tadamasa Honda and
   Tadatomo Honda before Tadakatsu Honda arrives and then defeat Lu Bu within
   2 minutes of his arrival.

   On Wu Chapter 7-X - Battle of Ji Province, defeat Tadakatsu Honda in the
   central area of the map, then defeat Tadakatsu Honda within 2 minutes of
   him reappearing in the northeastern area of the map.

   are still alive, escort the Messenger to the northeastern fort, defeat Lu
   Bu, and wait for your allied reinforcements to arrive.

   Chapter 8-X - Battle of Bai Di Castle.

Zuo Ci:  Clear all four Musou modes.

  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   4. Abilities
  WORABILI                   \_______________________________________________


Abilities in Warriors Orochi are unlocked by fulfilling a certain set of 
conditions for a certain character.  These normally involve killing a certain 
amount of officers or enemies on a stage within a set time or without doing 
certain things.  I have listed each character by the kingdom they are in and 
not by which story they are unlocked in.

If you have to fulfill a certain condition while maintaining a certain 
percentage on your Life Gauge, this is not a cumulative percentage.  For 
example, if you have a condition to maintain 50% Life Gauge status and you 
take 25% damage, if you pick up a healing item or switch your character to 
heal to 100%, then you still have the 50% buffer to play with, not a 25% 
buffer.  Also, if you have the condition to not use any attack involving the 
Musou Gauge, that means you cannot use any special attacks that use the Musou 
Gauge either.  This also includes the Technique counter attacks.  
Furthermore, even if you pick up an infinite Musou item, you still cannot 
perform a Musou attack, since your Musou Gauge will decrease temporarily and 
then refill under the infinite Musou status.

The abilities you can obtain and the highest they go are as follows:

Vitality (20):  Increases the length of your Life Gauge.
Focus (20):  Increases the length of your Musou Gauge.
Potence (20):  Increases your attack power.
Fortitude (20):  Increases your defense.
Impulse (20):  Increases your speed.
Cavalier (10):  Increases your horse attack power.  Also, the higher your
   ability, the better horse you get.  Furthermore, at Cavalier 10, you start
   off the stage with either Red Hare or Matsukaze, depending on your
   starting character.
Karma (10):  Increases your luck, which increases the number of items enemies
   drop.
Power (20):  Increases the attack of Power characters.
Speed (20):  Increases the attack of Speed characters.
Technique (20):  Increases the attack of Technique characters.
Boost (20):  Increases the power of charge attacks.
Awakening (20):  Increases the power of Musou attacks and special abilities
   that use the Musou Gauge.
Acclaim (20):  Increases the amount of experience a character can gain.
Recuperate (10):  Allows your resting character's Musou Gauges to refill
   faster.
Conserve (10):  Decreases the amount of Musou required for attacks using the
   Musou Gauge.
Adrenalin (10):  Life recovered when you obtain a chain of hits greater than
   10.
Recover (10):  Life Gauge recovers gradually.
Refill (10):  Musou Gauge recovers gradually.

  FAQ/Walkthrough           \  5. Personal Items
  WORPITEM                   \_______________________________________________


Personal items can be obtained for each character.  These items increase your 
Proficiency one point.  Proficiency increases the damage or duration or 
ability of your special attacks.

When getting a personal item, you do not have to be on a certain setting.  
For each of these items, I completed them on Normal difficulty, unless 
otherwise stated.  Also, I highly suggest you only use one character 
throughout the requirements, especially those involving kill counts.  You 
cannot split kills between multiple characters.  For example, for Zhao Yun's 
item, you need 100 kills, along with other requirements.  You cannot get 
those 100 kills with the other two team members in your party.  Zhao Yun must 
personally get 100 kills.

One quick note:  Since I am used to writing up these guides and strategies 
for Fourth Weapons, there may be times where I mess up and say that you are 
attempting to get a character's weapon instead of their item.  Just force of 
habit.

Zhao Yun
--------

Item:  Zhuge Liang's Silk Purse

Stage:  Shu Chapter 7 - Battle of Edo Castle

Requirements:  Within 10 minutes, defeat Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, and escape from
   the third floor of the main keep, and 100 enemies.

Location:  Southeastern corner of the castle near the base in the same area.

Time Log:

0'06":  The Zhao Yun unit is advancing toward the main keep.
0'31":  The western gate of Edo Castle has opened.
0'37":  Zhou Cang defeated.
0'49":  Sun Ce has arrived.
2'09":  The northern gate of Edo Castle has opened.
2'15":  Diamondback defeated.
2'35":  Fei Yi defeated.
3'12":  The gate to the main keep has opened.
3'18":  Zhang Fei defeated.
3'28":  Coachwhip defeated.
3'37":  Yang Yi defeated.
4'10":  Jiang Wan defeated.
4'55":  The door to the top floor of the main keep has opened.
5'02":  Guan Yu defeated.
5'08":  All doors of the main keep have closed.
5'19":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared in the main keep.
5'41":  Shigenaga Honjo defeated.
5'47":  The door to the top floor of the main keep has opened.
5'54":  Shigezane Date defeated.
6'06":  Dokyu Yamagami defeated.
6'12":  Escape from the main keep with the allied officers.
6'15":  The enemy commander Da Ji has appeared outside the walls of Edo
        Castle.
6'29":  Flames appear to be spreading within Edo Castle.
6'46":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Ten minutes seems like a long time and it is.  However, since you're going to 
be walking most of the time inside the main keep of the castle, you probably 
should have Impulse somewhere in your ability list just to make sure you are 
quick enough to get in and get out.  The quickest way into the main keep of 
the castle is through the north gate.  Make your way north and quickly open 
up the western gate to allow your allied forces inside to cause havoc on the 
enemy.  Now, quickly head for the north gate and defeat Diamondback to open 
the north gate.  Make your way inside the castle and start defeating generals 
who attempt to get in your way.  When you reach Zhang Fei, he's going to be 
tough to handle, since he's a power type general and has hyper armor.  Make 
use of your counter attack special ability to counter his hyper armor.  When 
Zhang Fei falls, enter the castle.  The first officer you will run across is 
Jiang Wan.  Defeat him and make your way up the stairs.  On the second floor, 
Guan Yu will be here, guarding the third floor.  Just like Zhang Fei, he has 
that hyper armor on, but he should be easier to defeat since there will be 
less enemies and less officers here.  Defeat Guan Yu to get the door to the 
third floor to open up.  Make your way to the third floor and get yourself 
trapped up there.  You will get jumped by three enemy officers and a bunch of 
soldiers.  Furthermore, Zhuge Liang will appear with Da Ji and set the castle 
on fire.  Quickly defeat Shigenaga Honjo, Shigezane Date, and Dokyu Yamagami 
to open up the gates to the third floor.  This will cause your item to 
appear, if you have done everything within the ten minutes time span.  Make 
your way back out of the keep and grab your item.  Clean up any enemy 
officers that may be left behind and then head for the southeastern corner of 
the map.  Defeat Zhuge Liang and Da Ji to complete the stage.

Guan Yu
-------

Item:  The Spring and Autumn Annals

Stage:  Shu Chapter 8-X - Battle of Mikatagahara

Requirements:  Secure the supply lines by defeating Zhang Lu before the enemy
   receives supplies twice, defeat Lu Bu, and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  Just beyond the front gate of Hamamatsu Castle.

Time Log:

0'33":  The morale of the Orochi Army's northern unit is rising.
0'51":  Prevent supplies arriving from the northern garrison.
1'01":  All gates of the northeastern garrison have opened.
1'17":  Zhang Lu defeated.
1'27":  The northeastern garrison has been seized.
2'06":  Hu Zhen defeated.
2'13":  Chen Gong defeated.
2'19":  Hua Xiong defeated.
2'41":  The southern unit of the Orochi Army is advancing.
3'07":  All gates of the central garrison have opened.
3'17":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared.
3'36":  Yuan Shu defeated.
3'50":  Zhou Xin defeated.
5'54":  Hu Che Er defeated.
6'04":  Coachwhip defeated.
6'14":  Tao Qian defeated.
6'23":  Diamondback defeated.
6'49":  The Coalition Army is advancing.
7'30":  Lu Bu is impressed by Guan Yu's achievements.
7'37":  Lu Bu defeated.
7'47":  Zuo Ci has appeared.
7'50":  The front gate of Hamamatsu Castle has opened.
7'53":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, immediately head for the supply fort at the 
northeastern corner of the map.  Take the western path all the way north and 
then take the northern path all the way east.  You will need to defeat a 
Defense Captain in order to open up all the gates.  Inside the northeastern 
garrison, defeat Zhang Lu to complete the first part of your tasks.  Now, 
focus on getting your 300 kills while moving south.  Defeat all the enemies 
in the northern section of the map.  Make your way south to the central fort.  
You will get ambushed by regular enemy soldiers inside the central fort.  
Clear this area out of enemy officers and soldiers and then make your way to 
the southwestern area of the map.  Again, clear this area out of enemy 
generals and soldiers.  By this time, you should have 300 kills, so make your 
way east towards Lu Bu.  Lu Bu is tough, as always, because he deals lots of 
damage with each hit, so try to get the better of him and don't let him hit 
you.  When Lu Bu falls, the front gate to Hamamatsu Castle will open and your 
item will appear beyond the gate.  Grab your item and then barge into 
Hamamatsu Castle and face off with Dong Zhuo and Orochi.



---------
Zhang Fei
---------

Item:  Elixir of the Peach Garden

Stage:  Shu Chapter 8-X - Battle of Mikatagahara

Requirements:  Within 10 minutes, secure the supply lines by defeating Zhang
   Lu before the enemy receives supplies twice, defeat Lu Bu, defeat 11
   officers, and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  North of the southeastern castle.

Time Log:

0'33":  The morale of the Orochi Army's northern unit is rising.
0'51":  Prevent supplies arriving from the northern garrison.
1'01":  All gates of the northeastern garrison have opened.
1'20":  Zhang Lu defeated.
1'26":  The northeastern garrison has been seized.  The supply route has been
        cut off.
2'01":  Hu Zhen defeated.
2'21":  Hua Xiong defeated.
2'34":  Chen Gong defeated.
2'56":  All gates of the central garrison have opened.
3'20":  Ji Ling defeated.
3'33":  Zhou Xin defeated.
3'42":  Yuan Shu defeated.
4'26":  All gates of the eastern garrison have opened.
4'58":  Li Ru defeated.
5'07":  Xing Daorong defeated.
5'40":  Diamondback defeated.
5'49":  Tao Qian defeated.
5'56":  Coachwhip defeated.
6'02":  Enemy reinforcements have arrived.
7'04":  Keelback defeated.
7'28":  Lu Bu is impressed by Zhang Fei's achievements.
7'31":  Lu Bu defeated.
7'37":  The front gate of Hamamatsu Castle has opened.
8'05":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The first thing you will need to deal with is the supply line.  You start off 
in the middle of the western path and the supply garrison is in the 
northeastern corner of the map.  You will need a horse to get there in time, 
so make sure you have one.  Use the western route and then take the northern 
route to reach there in time, since the central fort is blocked off by 
Defense Captains and it takes time to open it up.  When you reach the 
northeastern garrison, defeat the Defense Captain to open up the gates and 
defeat Zhang Lu quickly.  Now, the next important thing is to defeat enemy 
officers.  Start with the three officers in the north, which are Hua Xiong, 
Hu Zhen, and Chen Gong.  That will bring your total up to four.  Make your 
way south to the central garrison and open up the gates.  You will get 
ambushed by regular enemy soldiers, but you want this, since you do need to 
obtain 300 kills as well as the 11 officer kills.  Defeat Yuan Shu, Ji Ling, 
and Zhou Xin.  This will bring your officer kill count to 7.  You should also 
have about 150 kills by now as well.  Make your way east towards the eastern 
garrison.  Open up the gates and defeat Li Ru and Xing Daorong.  Your total 
should be at 9 now.  Now, make your way towards the southwestern part of the 
map.  Here, Tao Qian, Diamondback, and Coachwhip should be causing havoc in 
the area.  Defeat those three officers to bring your total up to the required 
amount.  You should have one more than the required amount, so this is a 
buffer if you get a kill stolen.  Also, reinforcements should arrive for the 
enemy, providing you with more of a buffer.  By now, you should have over 200 
kills.  You should have about 4 minutes left to get to Lu Bu, kill him off, 
and obtain your remaining 100 kills.  You probably will want to defeat the 
reinforcement officers first before fighting Lu Bu, as Lu Bu does a ton of 
damage and the reinforcement officers are just a distraction keeping you from 
focusing on Lu Bu.  When Lu Bu is defeated, the gate he was guarding will 
open.  If you don't have your 300 kills yet, there is a group of enemy 
soldiers just north of the southeastern castle.  Coincidentally, this is also 
where your item will appear.  Grab your item and finish of Dong Zhuo and 
Orochi to complete the stage.

Zhuge Liang
-----------

Item:  The Chu Shi Biao

Stage:  Shu Chapter 8 - Battle of Koshi Castle

Requirements:  Within 15 minutes, defeat Lu Bu, Keiji Maeda, Da Ji, and 100
   enemies.

Location:  Central area of Koshi Castle just beyond the inner gate.

Time Log:

0'26":  Da Ji is scaring her front line troops into action.
0'29":  Da Ji has ordered the enemy officers to advance.
0'49":  Sidewinder defeated.
1'06":  Diamondback defeated.
1'16":  Coachwhip defeated.
1'27":  Da Ji's plan has been successfully thwarted.
1'40":  The Lu Bu unit and the Keiji Maeda unit are preparing to advance.
1'59":  Da Ji has conjured up phantom soldiers.
2'21":  Find and defeat the one behind this magic.
2'40":  Da Ji's necromancy has been successfully stopped.
2'46":  Lancehead defeated.
3'03":  The Keiji Maeda unit is advancing.
3'14":  Zhuge Liang's plan has worked.
3'17":  Eliminate all enemy officers outside the castle.
3'33":  Shogen Yamaji defeated.
3'43":  Mitsunaga Irobe defeated.
3'53":  Enemy cannons have been activated.

4'07":  Keiji Maeda defeated.
4'32":  Da Ji's secret weapon Keiji Maeda has been defeated.
4'42":  Da Ji is showing signs of panic.
5'20":  Patchnose defeated.
5'26":  Hognose defeated.
5'45":  Yellowbely defeated.

6'49":  Wei Xu defeated.
7'05":  Song Xian defeated.
7'14":  Gao Shun defeated.
7'58":  Lu Bu defeated.
8'20":  Da Ji's secret weapon Lu Bu has been defeated.
8'30":  Da Ji is showing signs of panic.
8'41":  Zhuge Liang is challenging Da Ji.
8'53":  Da Ji has been provoked into action.
8'57":  The outer gate of Koshi Castle has opened.
9'07":  Da Ji defeated.
9'12":  Unique Item discovered.

My Method:

You are given 15 minutes to do everything, but you only really need ten.  
Your main focus should be on Da Ji, as she is in hiding.  The rest of the 
requirements will fall while getting to Da Ji, so simply focus on luring her 
out, which requires you to thwart all of her plans.  When the stage starts, 
head north towards the northern fort.  Da Ji will order the officers in the 
northern fort to charge out, so defeat all three enemy officers in this area.  
The three officers are Sidewinder, Diamondback, and Coachwhip.  Da Ji's first 
plan will have been thwarted, so continue to head west.  Da Ji will send out 
phantom soldiers next.  Zhuge Liang will tell you to look for the people 
controlling the soldiers.  The Sorcerers are located in the northwestern 
fort.  Defeat the Sorcerers to thwart Da Ji's second plan.  Da Ji will get 
really upset and send Keiji Maeda out after you.  Keiji Maeda has three 
officers with him, so it's going to be you versus many enemies.  Try to trim 
down some of the enemies using Zhuge Liang's special and isolate Keiji.  When 
Keiji and his army goes down, the eastern side should be cleared off and 
finished.  Now, you will need to travel back north and then down the western 
path.  While you were fighting Keiji, Da Ji should have ordered the cannon 
along the western path to start firing.  This is the next plan you will need 
to foil.  Defeat the enemy officers that are outside of the cannon fort and 
then defeat the Defense Captain to enter the cannon fort.  Inside, you will 
find a bunch of archers and Yellowbelly.  When the cannon is silenced, make 
your way south to where Lu Bu is.  Defeat his entourage of officers first to 
ensure you get a fair fight with the mighty Lu Bu.  When Lu Bu falls, Da Ji 
will be all out of options except for her to come out and face you herself.  
The gates to Koshi Castle will all open and Da Ji will be accessible.  Defeat 
Da Ji to make your item appear.  Your item appears beyond the inner gates of 
Koshi Castle, which is currently closed.  However, Orochi will appear and 
open up the gates for you, so grab your item and face off with the serpent 
king.

10'44":  Da Ji has disappeared.
11'05":  The inner gate of Koshi Castle has opened.
11'27":  Orochi has appeared.
11'34":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

To make Orochi appear, you must defeat Da Ji.  To get to Da Ji, you must 
thwart all of her plans.  When the stage starts, make your way east.  Da Ji's 
first plan will be an all out assault on your front lines.  Defeat 
Sidewinder, Diamondback, and Coachwhip to defeat this first assault.  Now, 
continue east towards the northeastern corner of the map.  Da Ji will summon 
phantom soldiers to try to harass your army.  The source of these soldiers 
will be the Sorcerers in the northeastern fort.  Defeat the Sorcerer to make 
Da Ji really upset.  She will send out Keiji Maeda and his army out to try to 
take on your army.  Make your way south and start defeating the enemy 
officers in Keiji's army.  Defeat all of the generic officers first before 
fighting Keiji, as Keiji does pack a wallop.  When Keiji is all alone, defeat 
him to stop Da Ji's first "secret weapon".  Make your way back over to the 
western side of the map by way of the northern route.  While you were 
fighting Keiji, Da Ji should have activated a cannon along the western route.  
This cannon will prevent your army from advancing.  It is also the next plan 
you must defeat.  Defeat Patchnose and Hognose, who are just outside the 
cannon, and then defeat the Defense Captain to open up the cannon fort.  
Inside, you will find archers and Yellowbelly.  Defeat Yellowbelly to stop 
the cannon.  There is only one thing left to do now.  Head south to where Lu 
Bu is.  There should be three enemy officers you will need to defeat before 
you can reach Lu Bu.  They are Wei Xu, Song Xian, and Gao Shun.  Defeat these 
three officers and then move east towards Lu Bu.  Lu Bu is really powerful 
and can kill you in just a couple of strikes.  Use all of your strongest 
attacks when fighting him and don't hold anything back.  When Lu Bu goes 
down, Da Ji has lost her second secret weapon and is now all out of options.  
Zhuge Liang will taunt her and Da Ji will get upset.  This will open up all 
of the gates to Koshi Castle.  Make your way inside of Koshi Castle and reach 
Da Ji.  Defeat both her and Urutu and Da Ji will disappear.  Orochi will 
finally make his entrance.  He will open up the inner gates to Koshi Castle.  
When Zhuge Liang reaches the inner most part of Koshi Castle, you will get a 
cut scene of Liu Bei being held hostage...even though you are playing as Liu 
Bei right now.  Orochi will appear with Da Ji and some other reinforcement 
generals.  The item will appear inside your main camp, which will be a pain 
to get to.  Clear out some enemy officers, make your way back to your main 
camp and grab your item, then make your way back inside Koshi Castle and 
defeat Orochi to complete the stage.

Ma Chao

Item:  Silk Reins

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 3-X - Battle of Xia Pi

Requirements:  Rescue Lu Xun and lead him to your main camp, defeat 300
   enemies, and get your army to advance while defeating 11 officers.

Location:  Along the southern route just before the bridge.

Time Log:

0'08":  Aid the Lu Xun Army, and form an alliance with them.
0'22":  Tamehiro Hiratsuka defeated.
0'39":  The Orochi Army's first wave advances upon the Coalition Army main
        camp.
0'42":  The Suketada Ogawa unit advances upon the Lu Xun unit.
0'51":  Masataka Kasahara defeated.
1'16":  Hiroie Kikkawa defeated.
1'25":  Suketada Ogawa defeated.
2'03":  Zhang Liao is preparing his defenses.
2'18":  Zhang Liao defeated.
2'33":  Naoyasu Akaza defeated.
2'54":  Hao Zhao defeated.
3'04":  The Orochi Army's second wave advances upon the Coalition Army main
        camp.
3'25":  Alliance formed with Lu Xun.
3'31":  Lu Xun begins his retreat to the allied main camp.
3'34":  Escort Lu Xun safely back to the allied main camp.
3'56":  Midemoto Mori defeated.
4'24":  Shigemasa Toda defeated.
6'03":  Guo Jia defeated.
6'13":  Yue Jin defeated.
6'30":  Cheng Yu defeated.
6'40":  Xu Huang defeated.
6'50":  Man Chong defeated.
6'57":  Xu Shu defeated (by another officer).
7'00":  Lu Xun has successfully retreated to the allied main camp.
7'19":  The Coalition Army is advancing.
7'22":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Quickly defeat the first two enemy officers in the northwestern corner of the 
map and then make your way across the northern path to where Lu Xun is at.  
Ignore the two officers along the way and simply make your way to Lu Xun's 
area of the castle.  Defeat Hiroie Kikkawa and Suketada Ogawa to rescue Lu 
Xun.  Now, you can either form an alliance with Lu Xun right away, or you can 
use the message spam to your advantage and leave Lu Xun in the castle safe 
while you are taking out the northeastern area of the map.  Zhang Liao and 
three other generic officers are in this area, so defeat them.  If Lu Xun 
hasn't started his retreat yet, make your way over to him and form an 
alliance with him to get him going.  Along the way, defeat Hidemoto Mori and 
Shigemasa Toda to clear the northern area of officers.  Also, while waiting 
for Lu Xun to make his way back to the main camp, start killing some soldiers 
in the northwestern area of the map.  Now, make your way south and begin 
defeating the officers in this area.  There are six of them, of which you 
need to defeat five of them.  This shouldn't be too hard, since you do have 
some leeway with not having to defeat them all personally.  When you have 
done this and Lu Xun makes his way into the allied main camp, your army will 
charge and your item will appear on the southern route.  Get that and then 
make your way over to Cao Ren.  Defeat him to complete the stage.

Item:  Longbow of Yore

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 2 - Battle of Honnoji

Requirements:  Succeed in putting out the fires first and then defeat 300
   enemies and defeat in order Zhou Yu, Sun Shang Xiang, and Da Ji.

5'17":  Defeat Dong Xi and Chen Lan, to enable the fires to be put out.
5'24":  Reinforcements have appeared for the Orochi Army.
5'38":  Chen Lan defeated.
5'48":  Dong Xi defeated.
5'54":  Toshiie Maeda is dousing the flames.
5'58":  The flames have been successfully extinguished.
6'47":  Reinforcements have appeared for the Orochi Army.
7'13":  Xiahou Dun arrives.
7'31":  Zhou Yu defeated.
8'01":  Shingen Takeda arrives.
8'21":  Sun Shang Xiang defeated.
8'31":  Zhu Huan defeated.
8'41":  Mamushi defeated.
8'51":  Chen Shi defeated.
9'20":  Da Ji defeated.
9'27":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, defeat Ding Feng and then head south and then west.  
When you reach the barrier along the western route, make your way through the 
alleyways to get to where Xu Sheng is.  Defeat him and then continue moving 
towards the temple of Honnoji.  Defeat both Sadatsugu Tsutsui and Takatsugu 
Kyogoku to keep Cao Cao from being defeated and then make your way back out 
and escort Nobunaga Oda into the temple.  When Nobunaga's path is cleared, 
start make your way out of the temple towards the eastern route.  Eventually, 
when Nobunaga reaches the temple, Cao Cao will turn into Da Ji and all of 
Honnoji will be set on fire.  Furthermore, Orochi reinforcements will arrive 
in the form of Zhou Yu.  Make your way up the eastern path and wait for 
Toshiie Maeda to arrive.  When he does, escort him towards the fire 
extinguish point, which is near the middle of Honnoji.  Chen Lan and Dong Xi 
will arrive and try to stop Toshiie, but defeat them quickly to allow Toshiie 
to put out all the fires.  By now, Sun Shang Xiang should appear as another 
reinforcements for the enemy army.  This is the annoying part of the item.  
You must travel all the way to the western route and defeat Zhou Yu, then 
make your way back to the eastern route and defeat Sun Shang Xiang.  Now, 
make your way back to the temple of Honnoji and defeat Da Ji there to get 
your item to appear, provided you have the required 300 kills, which you 
should have if you have been using only Huang Zhong the entire stage, and 
provided that there is an enemy officer still left on the map, which there 
should be quite a few if you were following this guide.  Remember, the stage 
ends when there are no more enemy officers on the map, so leave a couple in 
the northern areas so that you can go get your item.  The item will appear in 
the northwestern castle, so make your way through the maze of passages up 
there and grab your item.  Now, it's a simple matter of hunting down all the 
generic officers and defeating them.

Jiang Wei
---------

Item:  The Twenty-Four Scrolls

Stage:  Shu Chapter 3-X - Battle of Shizugatake

Requirements:  Within 4 minutes, rescue all Hojo officers and defeat Cao Ren.
   After that, defeat 300 enemies.  There is no time limit involved with the
   300 kills.

Location:  Along the north path near the gate that is east of the central
   fort, near Cao Ren's initial position.

Time Log:

0'18":  Enemy ambush troops appear, surrounding the Hojo.
0'29":  Mitsuyasu Shimura defeated.
0'48":  Mitsunao Tateoka defeated.
1'00":  Norihide Matsuda has been rescued.
1'04":  Norihide Matsuda has pledged to fight to the death.
1'25":  Hidetsuna Sakenobe defeated.
1'35":  Minbu Satomi defeated.
2'14":  Ujiteru Hojo has been rescued.
2'17":  Ujiteru Hojo has pledged to fight to the death.
2'26":  Diamondback defeated.
2'39":  Ujinori Uesugi has been rescued.
2'43":  Ujinori Uesugi has pledged to fight to the death.
3'10":  Ujinao Hojo has been rescued.
3'13":  Ujinao Hojo has pledged to fight to the death.
3'23":  Cao Ren defeated.
3'44":  Ujimasa Hojo has been rescued.
3'47":  Ujimasa Hojo has pledged to fight to the death.
6'19":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The toughest part about this will be rescuing the Hojo.  They tend to die off 
quickly, so you will want to immediately head for them first.  Also, another 
issue will be the message spam that will prevent the game from recognizing 
the fact that you have completed your objectives within the time frame.  In 
order to prevent this, pause the game during officer speeches.  As soon as 
the stage starts, make your way over to Norihide Matsuda and wait for 
Mitsuyasu Shimura to appear.  Defeat him quickly and then make your way 
across the stage to Ujiteru Hojo and Mitsunao Tateoka.  Defeat Mitsunao 
Tateoka and continue north.  Rescue Ujinori Uesugi by defeating Hidetsuna 
Sakenobe.  Head west to rescue Ujinao Hojo by defeating Minbu Satomi.  
Finally, enter the northwestern fort and defeat Diamondback to rescue Ujimasa 
Hojo.  It's not over yet.  Quickly make your way towards the northern path to 
where Cao Ren is.  Defeat him quickly.  Now, don't defeat any more officers 
until the message spam goes away.  Each officer will need to pledge to fight 
to the death before four minutes are up.  They do not have to survive after 
they have pledged to fight to the death, they simply need to be rescued and 
then devote their lives to fighting for your cause.  When that has happened, 
clear out the northern path and then make your way over to the middle path 
and collect whatever kills you have left.  You should have around 100 to 150 
kills by the time you reach the central areas.  When you have 300 kills, your 
item should appear.  Defeat Pang De to complete the stage.

Wei Yan

Item:  Wolf Mask

Stage:  Shu Chapter 4-X - Escape from Chi Bi

Requirements:  Find all 10 Goemon boxes within 2 minutes and then defeat
   Kotaro Fuma, Musashi Miyamoto, and 300 enemies.

Location:  Near the southern base, which is Goemon's initial escape point.

Time Log:

0'24":  The wooden boxes contain treasure hidden by Goemon Ishikawa.
0'31":  Goemon Ishikawa is demoralized.
0'38":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
0'45":  Goemon Ishikawa's speed has slowed.
0'51":  Miscreants have appeared.
0'54":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
1'00":  Goemon Ishikawa is demoralized.
1'04":  Goemon Ishikawa is hesitating.
1'10":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
1'17":  Goemon Ishikawa's speed has slowed.
1'20":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
1'29":  Goemon Ishikawa is demoralized.
1'35":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
1'42":  Goemon Ishikawa's speed has slowed.
1'45":  Goemon Ishikawa is hesitating.
1'56":  Goemon Ishikawa is demoralized.
2'03":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
2'10":  Goemon Ishikawa's speed has slowed.
2'13":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
2'21":  Goemon Ishikawa is demoralized.
2'35":  Goemon Ishikawa's treasure has been found.
2'42":  Goemon Ishikawa's speed has slowed.
2'45":  Goemon Ishikawa is hesitating.
3'23":  Yoshitaka Kuki defeated.
3'48":  Kotaro Fuma appears.
3'55":  Kotaro Fuma defeated.
4'06":  Yoshitake Mibu defeated.
4'18":  Hiroteru Minagawa defeated.
4'26":  Okuni has appeared.
4'44":  Okuni is advancing toward Goemon Ishikawa.
4'55":  Goemon Ishikawa has altered his course.
6'31":  Okuni is managing the slow Goemon Ishikawa down.
9'55":  Alliance formed with Okuni.
10'08":  Musashi Miyamoto appears.
10'46":  Unique item discovered.
10'53":  Musashi Miyamoto defeated.

My Method:

Your first priority is to find all the boxes.  Make your way west and the 
first box can be found just after the two paths meet.  Continue west to the 
second box, which is at the fork in the road.  Take the north path to find 
the third and fourth box, which are near the enemy base.  Continue along this 
path and find the fifth box along the path.  When you reach the path heading 
east, take it, but take the first path heading north.  The sixth treasure box 
will be found when you reach the path that is heading north.  Take the path 
north, which is the path you did not take at the first fork, and up about 
halfway up the path will be the seventh box.  Backtrack and then head east 
again and take the northern path.  The eighth box is on the northern path.  
Where the southern path and the northern path meet will be where the ninth 
box is.  Finally, the tenth box is on that little insert area just north of 
the ninth box.  If you have done all of this within 2 minutes, you are safe.  
Of course, the game won't recognize you destroying all the boxes until about 
3 minutes later, but the game doesn't have to recognize it for your item to 
appear.  Now, head west and wait in the western clearing for the message spam 
to go away.  Kotaro Fuma will eventually appear in this area.  Defeat him and 
the generals he brings with him, then clear this area out of enemy soldiers.  
Backtrack towards the river of red dots that is lined up along the northern 
path.  Start killing off enemy soldiers in this area until you reach 300 
kills, then head back towards Goemon Ishikawa.  Okuni should have appeared by 
now, sending Goemon on another course.  The last thing you need for the 
weapon to appear is to defeat Musashi Miyamoto.  He will appear when Goemon 
reaches the central clearing on the southern path.  Defeat Musashi and your 
item will appear near the southern base, which was Goemon's initial escape 
point.  Grab your item and then defeat Goemon to complete the stage.

Pang Tong

Item:  Embroidered Facescarf

Stage:  Wei Chapter 5 - Battle of Odawara Castle

Requirements:  Defeat Hideyori Toyotomi, Cao Cao, and Sun Jian within 4
   minutes of each other.  After that, defeat 100 enemies.  There is no time
   limit for the 100 kills.

Location:  Southeastern corner of the map.

Time Log:

0'25":  The Orochi Army is dispersing along the north-south axis.
0'36":  The allied forces have been stopped at the northern gate.
0'40":  Hideyori Toyotomi appears.
1'03":  The Huang Gai Army is invading from the southern gate.
1'06":  Hideyori Toyotomi defeated.
1'27":  It was not the real Hideyori Toyotomi.
1'42":  Some of the soldiers of the Orochi Army are fleeing.
1'49":  Mototsuna Kutsuki defeated.
1'56":  The northern inner gate of Odawara Castle has opened.
2'29":  Copperhead defeated.
2'39":  Mitsushige Nobesawa defeated.
2'46":  Cao Cao defeated.
2'55":  The enemy bomb corridor has been activated.
3'17":  It was not the real Cao Cao.
3'37":  Alliance formed with the Huang Gai Army.
3'47":  Sun Jian defeated.
4'05":  Kazutada Nakamura defeated.
4'16":  More soldiers of the Orochi Army are fleeing.
4'22":  Da Ji has weakened.
4'26":  It was not the real Sun Jian.
4'29":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The best way to go about doing this is to defeat Hideyori Toyotomi first, 
then Cao Cao, and then finally Sun Jian.  You don't need to defeat all four 
within 4 minutes of the start of the castle.  The time limit starts when you 
make the first kill.  Make your way outside of the main keep and head west.  
When you escape the main keep of the castle through the western gate, 
Hideyori Toyotomi will appear.  At least, this is a fake Hideyori Toyotomi.  
Your countdown will begin with Hideyori is defeated, so make sure you are 
ready to run around the stage when Hideyori goes down.  Defeat the fake and 
then immediately make your way all the way north and then east.  You will run 
into Mototsuna Kutsuki, who is guarding the gate that will lead to Cao Cao.  
Defeat Mototsuna quickly and then pass through the gate.  Cao Cao will be 
surrounded by a few generic officers in this area, so you may have to defeat 
them first before you get to Cao Cao.  Either way, you will need to defeat 
Cao Cao quickly, as the clock is ticking.  When Cao Cao goes down, 
immediately head south through the bomb corridor, which should have activated 
by now.  Make your way through the bomb corridor, leave this area through the 
central gate, and head south to where Sun Jian is.  He only has one officer 
with him, so this shouldn't be as big of a problem as Cao Cao was.  When Sun 
Jian is defeated, by now, you should have already obtained the 100 kills just 
through collateral damage.  If not, simply kill enemies in this area until 
you reach 100.  Your item will appear after your army realizes that the Sun 
Jian you were fighting was a fake.  The item appears in the southeastern 
corner of the map, so clear out the castle first and then once you start 
making your way towards Da Ji, simply take a detour to the south.  Grab your 
item, head back north into the enemy main camp, and defeat Da Ji to end the 
stage.

Yue Ying
--------

Item:  Wooden Puppet

Stage:  Shu Chapter 3 - Battle of Cheng Du

Requirements:  While the Wei Yan Army is alive, defeat all 10 Messengers, 300
   enemies, and Yukimura Sanada after he charges and after he has a
   conversation with Yue Ying.  Special thanks to SannaSK for providing the
   last part of the requirements.

Location:  Inside the central fort, near the stronghold.

Time Log:

0'13":  Infiltrate Cheng Du Castle via the rear path.
0'19":  Morinobu Nishina defeated.
0'48":  Do not allow the messengers to reach the enemy forces.
0'51":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
1'22":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
1'30":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
1'35":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
1'43":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
1'51":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
2'01":  The Coalition Army has been spotted by a messenger.
3'44":  The enemy forces have launched a full assault.
3'47":  Alliance formed with the Wei Yan Army.
3'54":  Gao Lan defeated.
4'03":  Bitchu Kozuki defeated.
4'39":  Nobuyuki Sanada defeated.
4'49":  Yorisada Yazawa defeated.
4'59":  Wen Chou defeated.
5'11":  Yan Liang defeated.
5'26":  Yukimura Sanada is advancing.
5'50":  Shigenari Kimura defeated.
6'02":  Yukimura Sanada defeated.
6'08":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You will want to have a high enough attack and Calvary ability so that you 
can one hit Messengers.  As soon as the stage starts, make your way north and 
defeat the two Messengers that are in the area.  Also, defeat Morinobu 
Nishina.  Make your way north and start defeating Messengers inside the 
forest maze.  There are two right away as you head north.  There are three 
others along the southern part of the forest.  Finally, there is one in the 
middle, one on the northern path, and one on the western path.  That makes 
ten.  Now, make your way inside the western castle by way of the northern 
route.  Along the way, defeat Gao Lan and Bitchu Kozuki, who are trying to do 
the same thing, except for not so nice reasons.  Now, make your way towards 
the front gate of the castle and start defeating all the generals in this 
area.  There are four of them, which can be a pain if they all gang up on you 
at once.  The trick is to thin them out one by one until they are manageable.  
When these four enemy officers are defeated, Yukimura Sanada will charge out 
and challenge you.  This is when you need to defeat him.  Do not attack him 
before he charges out.  Also, make sure you do not defeat him too quickly.  
Try to get rid of all the message spam before you fight Yukimura.  When you 
meet up with Yukimura, he and Yue Ying will have a conversation about ghosts 
and whatnot.  After he stops talking, you can defeat him.  When Yukimura 
Sanada is defeated, you will get your item, provided you have the required 
300 kills.  If you do not have your 300 kills yet, simply stay in this area 
and kill off enemy soldiers.  When you have your 300 kills, the item will 
appear inside the fort that is just outside near the central area of the map, 
where Shigenari Kimura starts off at.  Grab your item and make your way 
towards Yuan Shao.  Defeat Yuan Shao to get Da Ji to appear.  Defeat Da Ji to 
complete the stage.

10'29":  Zhou Tai defeated.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts, make your way to the eastern fort where Kenshin 
Uesugi and Shingen Takeda are located at.  Inside here, defeat Hao Zhao and 
Zhu Huan quickly.  Clear the fort out of enemy soldiers and then make your 
way to the northern route.  This is where the cavalry units will appear.  
Start by clearing out all enemy officers and soldiers that are on this route.  
There will be three enemy officers along this route. The northern central 
gate will continue to pump out enemy soldiers, but you cannot do much about 
this other than babysit the gate.  When the first cavalry soldier makes it to 
the northern fort, make your way to the central garrison and clear this area 
out of enemy officers.  This is a pre-emptive strike against the enemy, as 
these enemy officers and soldiers will actually march out and try to stop the 
cavalry units.  When the central area is cleared out, make your way back to 
the cavalry unit and clear the way for that unit.  There shouldn't be very 
many soldiers to clear out.  When that unit arrives at the northern fort, a 
third unit will appear.  This time, Cao Ren will attempt to stop the cavalry 
units by attacking the northern fort.  When he reaches the northern fort, 
defeat him.  He will decide to join your forces if you don't already have 
him.  When the third unit reaches the northern stronghold, the Naoe Cavalry 
will appear in the central area of the map.  Now, make your way over to the 
enemy main camp.  Zhou Tai will be at the eastern gate of the enemy main 
camp.  Defeat Zhou Tai to make your weapon appear in the area you should be 
at, if you have your 200 kills that is, which you should by now.  Now it's 
simply a matter of defeat Cao Pi and Sun Quan to end the stage.

Xing Cai
--------

Item:  Zhang Fei's Necklace

Stage:  Shu Chapter 1 - Battle of Ueda Castle

Requirements:  Within five minutes, open the gates to the southeastern fort
   by defeating Zhang He and defeat 100 enemies.  You cannot have Zhao Yun in
   your party.

Location:  Just south of the eastern fort.

Time Log:

1'21":  Keelback defeated.
1'28":  Niu Jin defeated.
2'07":  Mamushi defeated.
2'56":  Cottonmouth defeated.
4'23":  Zhang He appears.
4'26":  The gate to the escape point opens.
4'29":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You have a five minute time limit, so you must do things kind of quickly.  
Also, you will need to clear a path for Zhao Yun, as he does die kind of 
easily.  First, when the gate opens, make your way up the stairs and then 
down the other set of stairs to where Keelback is at.  Defeat Keelback to 
escape the main keep of Ueda Castle and then defeat Niu Jin once you get out 
of the main keep.  Zuo Ci will tell you to head west, so do so.  Use the 
western route and move along the outside of the stage.  You will need to make 
your way towards the southeastern corner of the map, which is where the 
escape point is.  When you reach the northwestern area of the map, you will 
meet up with Ginchiyo Tachibana.  Defeat Mamushi and Cottonmouth and then 
continue to lead your allies.  When you get to Wen Pin, Cao Ren will realize 
that Zhao Yun has escaped.  Now, defeat Wen Pin quickly and then start 
heading directly for the southeastern fort.  Don't bother with any enemies 
along the way.  Simply get to the southeastern fort, defeat Zhang He, and 
open up the doors to the southeastern fort.  If you've done this all in time, 
you will get the item to appear.  Grab your item, immediately return to Zhao 
Yun's side, and keep him protected until he escapes.

Xiahou Dun
----------

Item:  Blinding Arrow

Stage:  Wei Chapter 6 - Battle of Chen Cang

Requirements:  Within 5 minutes, form an alliance with Da Ji, defeat Oichi,
   defeat Yoshimune Kawai, defeat Nagashige Tomita, defeat the two Defense
   Captains inside the eastern part of the castle, and defeat 200 enemies.

Location:  On the wall south of the northern section of the castle.

Time Log:

0'17":  Alliance formed with the Da Ji Army.
0'28":  The Azai Army advances.
0'55":  Yoshimune Kawai defeated.
1'05":  Seize the enemy bases and stop the enemy advance.
1'11":  Nagashige Tomita defeated.
1'25":  Oichi defeated.
2'27":  Tsunachika Kaiho defeated.
2'43":  Naganori Yamazaki defeated.
3'08":  Masazumi Azai defeated.
3'30":  Base captured.
3'33":  Seize the remaining enemy base.
4'01":  Base captured.
4'07":  All enemy bases atop the castle wall have been seized.
4'14":  Kazumasa Isono defeated.
4'27":  The central gates have opened.
4'30":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You have much to do in a short period of time, so you will need to make 
things quick and also pause during long speeches to get things happening fast 
enough.  First thing you want to do is head east and form an alliance with Da 
Ji.  Then, head west towards Oichi.  You will run into her two guards, 
Yoshimune Kawai and Nagashige Tomita, before you run into her.  All three of 
them must be defeated, so it's no big deal.  Just get them one at a time and 
be careful of the riflemen in the area.  When Oichi and her entourage is 
defeated, defeat some enemies in this area.  Since you need 200 kills within 
5 minutes and there is a high concentration of enemies in the area, you might 
as well take this chance to do so.  When you have about 100 kills, make your 
way north towards the western gate of Chen Cang.  Defeat the Defense Captain 
to open the gates.  If you're running short on time, you can ignore the enemy 
officers charging at you.  However, this is another good chance to get some 
kills, so you might as well fight them.  Make your way towards the eastern 
area of the castle.  This area is also considered to be the central part of 
the castle, but it's kind of the eastern part of the castle and kind of the 
southern part of the castle.  This is where the Defense Captains are at that 
you need to defeat.  They are located on the eastern and western walls of the 
central area of the stage.  Defeat both of them to fulfill this requirement.  
In order to get credit for this requirement, you will have to wait for Gan 
Ning to say he's going to charge out and try to even the battle.  Now, get 
your 200 kills if you haven't done so already.  If you've done everything 
within 5 minutes, your item will appear.  Now, you can either take your time 
clearing everyone out or you can simply run to your item, grab your item, and 
move west to where Nagamasa Azai is and defeat him.

Dian Wei
--------

Item:  Banner of the Coming Evil

Stage:  Wei Chapter 8-X - Battle of He Fei Castle

Requirements:  Defeat Lu Bu within 2 minutes of his charge and defeat 300
   enemies.

Location:  Along the northwestern path.

Time Log:

0'27":  The central outer gates have opened.
0'40":  Coachwhip defeated.
0'50":  The eastern outer gates have opened.
0'56":  Urutu defeated.
1'10":  Diamondback defeated.
1'16":  The western outer gates have opened.
1'35":  Allied engineers appear.
1'41":  Hidetsuna Sakenobe defeated.
2'01":  Mitsuuji Ujiie defeated.
2'19":  Battering ram arrives.
3'23":  Keiji Maeda appears.
3'32":  Allied ambush troops appear.
5'03":  Tomomichi Iwanari defeated.
5'29":  Murashige Araki defeated.
5'40":  The eastern inner gates have opened.
5'53":  Hognose defeated.
6'16":  Patchnose defeated.
6'41":  Yellowbelly defeated.
6'58":  Mitsuyasu Shimura defeated.
7'37":  Mitsushige Nobesawa defeated.
7'50":  The central inner gate has been destroyed.
8'09":  Kazuhide Nakamura defeated.
8'28":  Nagayuki Miyoshi defeated.
8'38":  The inner section of the castle has been successfully accessed.
8'45":  The allied engineers have secured the access route.
8'48":  The Cao Zhang unit and the Yoshitsugu Otani unit arrive.
8'59":  The Sun Ce Army arrives.
9'08":  Kazutada Nakamura defeated.
9'17":  Mitsunao Tateoka defeated.
9'52":  Lu Bu rejects Da Ji's orders and attacks on his own.
10'17":  Lu Bu is impressed by Dian Wei's achievements.
10'20":  Unique item discovered.
10'24":  Lu Bu defeated.

My Method:

To get Lu Bu to charge, you will need to get the armies along the western 
path to make their way north and hit the enemies with a surprise attack.  
First, complete the attack on three fronts by opening up the front gate and 
then defeat the enemies that are just beyond this gate.  The other two gates 
should open up on their own.  When all three gates open up, engineers will 
appear along the western route.  You will need to escort them up the western 
route for a sneak attack.  Make your way towards the western gate and defeat 
both Hidetsuna Sakenobe and Mitsuuji Ujiie.  Clear out the enemy forces along 
the western route and allow the engineers to make their way north.  When the 
engineers get too far north, Keiji Maeda will appear to try to make life 
difficult.  Fortunately, not only are you there, but Cao Cao is ready with an 
ambush of his own to further protect the engineers.  Defeat Keiji Maeda to 
make sure the engineers are safe.  Now, make your way back to the front gate 
and get rid of all the enemy soldiers that are near the battering ram.  This 
is also a good chance to get some kills while waiting for the central gate to 
fall.  I advanced up the eastern path, defeating the enemy officers along the 
way while waiting for everything to happen.  I actually got all the way to 
the western path and cleared that area out before the main gate fell and the 
western route got cleared out.  After you receive reinforcements from Sun Ce 
and from the west, Da Ji will order to reinforce the defenses, but Lu Bu will 
refuse and charge out towards the western path.  This is the event you have 
been waiting for.  Head directly for Lu Bu and defeat him within two minutes 
of him charging out.  Lu Bu, in many games, is one of the hardest enemies you 
will ever encounter.  However, in Warriors Orochi, he's a more tamed version 
of himself, so he should fall quickly.  With Lu Bu's defeat, there shouldn't 
be any problems handling the rest of the enemies on the field.  Just grab 
your item and then defeat Da Ji and Orochi and complete the stage.

Xu Zhu
------

Item:  Silk Neckerchief

Stage:  Wei Chapter 4-X - Battle of Saika

Requirements:  Defeat Yasutomo Asahina, Motonobu Okabe, Mototsuna Okabe,
   Nagatada Ogasawara, Shingen Takeda, Kenshin Uesugi, Kanetsugu Naoe, and
   300 enemies before Yoshimoto Imagawa appears.  Furthermore, you cannot
   allow any engineers to enter the central fort.

Location:  Northeastern corner of the map near where Yoshimoto Imagawa
   appears.

Time Log:

0'07":  Defeat all Resistance Army officers and obliterate the enemy bases.
0'14":  Nagatada Ogasawara defeated.
0'21":  Motonobu Okabe defeated.
0'31":  Mototsuna Okabe defeated.
0'54":  Yasutomo Asahina defeated.
1'04":  The Resistance Army officers have been comprehensively defeated.
1'07":  The Orochi Army has seized the central garrison.
1'17":  A Takeda Army ambush unit has appeared.
1'20":  An Uesugi Army ambush unit has appeared.
1'31":  The Resistance Army plan has succeeded.
1'34":  Wipe out all Resistance Army officers and keep the central garrison
        safe.
1'57":  Shingen Takeda defeated.
2'07":  Kansuke Yamamoto defeated.
2'17":  Masanobu Kosake defeated.
2'24":  The Resistance Army is advancing.
2'34":  Nobufusa Baba defeated.
2'48":  The Resistance Army is advancing.
3'07":  Kanetsugu Naoe defeated.
3'17":  Tomonobu Saito defeated.
3'28":  Kenshin Uesugi defeated.
3'38":  Sadamitsu Usami defeated.
4'32":  Yataro Onikojima defeated.
5'28":  Masatoyo Naito defeated.
5'38":  Masakage Yamagata defeated.
5'48":  Kageie Kakizaki defeated.
5'58":  The Takeda-Uesugi Army is retreating.
6'01":  The Orochi Army has succeeded in suppressing the Resistance Army.
6'08":  Yoshimoto Imagawa appears.
6'30":  Defeat Yoshimoto Imagawa.
6'37":  Unique item discovered.


My Method:

When the stage starts, immediately defeat the four generals in the central 
fort.  Those four generals are Nagatada Ogasawara, Motonobu Okabe, Yasutomo 
Asahina, and Mototsuna Okabe.  When those four officers are defeated, 
immediately make your way towards the northwestern garrison.  This is where 
Shingen Takeda will appear.  Kenshin Uesugi will appear in the southeastern 
garrison, but deal with him later.  For now, defeat Shingen Takeda.  You will 
probably defeat a few officers that are with him, but that's alright.  After 
all, you do need enemy kills as well.  Just don't spend too long in this 
area.  You will need to use the message spam to help you delay the engineers 
from appearing.  You could always wait for the engineers to arrive and defeat 
them, but instead of dealing with that annoyance, simply run down to the 
southwestern garrison and defeat Kanetsugu Naoe and Kenshin Uesugi before 
they can call forth the engineers.  If the engineers do show up, you cannot 
let a single one inside the central fort.  When Kenshin and Kanetsugu are 
defeated, it's time to get your 300 kills and the remaining enemy officers.  
Yoshimoto Imagawa will appear when there are no enemy officers left on the 
battlefield, so defeat your 300 before you defeat the last enemy officer.  
When Yoshimoto Imagawa appears, make your way to the northeast corner where 
he appears and wait for everyone to stop talking.  Your item will appear in 
this area.  Grab it and defeat Yoshimoto to end the stage.

Cao Cao
-------

Item:  Journal of Cao Cao

Stage:  Wei Chapter 8 - Battle of Koshi Castle

Requirements:  Within 5 minutes, defeat Masamune Date, Keiji Maeda after he
   leaves his fort, and 250 enemies.

Location:  Inside the Koshi Castle just past the inner gate that Lu Bu
   guards.

Time Log:

0'30":  The Coalition Army is advancing.
0'44":  The Orochi Army is advancing.
0'54":  Tsunenaga Hasekura defeated.
1'07":  The gates to the garrison guarded by Masamune Date have opened.
1'14":  Hidemune Date defeated.
1'20":  Masamune Date defeated.
1'33":  The gates to the garrison guarded by Keiji Maeda have opened.
1'41":  Keiji Maeda advances.
1'48":  An enemy officer has appeared to take Keiji Maeda's place.
1'58":  An enemy cannon fortress has been seized.
2'01":  Allied defense captains have appeared.
2'15":  Sidewinder defeated.
2'21":  The second wave of the allied forces advances west.
2'25":  Keiji Maeda defeated.
2'50":  Yellowbelly and Urutu advance.
3'01":  Hognose defeated.
3'12":  Coachwhip defeated.
3'43":  Mitsunaga Irobe defeated.
3'51":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You have a lot of distance to travel in a little bit of time.  When the stage 
starts, immediately make your way north to where Masamune Date is.  Defeat 
the Defense Captain guarding the gate to the fort where Masamune is hiding in 
and then defeat Tsunenaga Hasekura and Hidemune Date while you are waiting 
for everyone to shut up.  This will give you some kills, which you need.  
When the gates finally open, quickly run through the loud mouth Masamune and 
then get back on your horse.  You should have at least 50 kills by now, if 
not 100.  Head back south to your starting position and then make your way 
west.  Keiji Maeda should have charged out by now, so he should be making his 
way towards you.  Defeat him quickly and then get your last 150 to 200 kills 
in this area to complete the third requirement for your item.  It should 
appear inside Koshi Castle.  In order to get inside Koshi Castle, you will 
have to capture every cannon on the map, which is a pain, because the enemy 
soldiers can take those cannons right back.  You could lose a cannon on one 
side of the map while you are on the other side of the map, so try to defeat 
as many enemy soldiers while you are traveling around the map.  Of course, 
when you do finally get inside Koshi Castle, don't forget to grab your item.  
Your item is just past the gate Lu Bu is guarding.  Defeat Orochi to complete 
the stage.  It sounds simple and once you get there, it mostly is, it's just 
time consuming.  I could write everything that will happen along the way, but 
that is time consuming as well.

Xiahou Yuan
-----------

Item:  Bow of the Xiahou

Stage:  Wei Chapter 6-X - Battle of Liang Province

Requirements:  Within 8 minutes, defeat all six Sorcerers, defeat the fake
   Cao Pi, and defeat 100 enemies.

Location:  Inside the northeastern fort.

Time Log:

0'23":  Kotaro Fuma joins Dong Zhuo.
0'44":  Mitsuyasu Shimura defeated.
0'57":  Magical energy is emanating from the enemy garrisons.
1'25":  Eliminate enemy sorcerers in the garrisons.
1'32":  Mitsuuji Ujiie defeated.
1'38":  The strength of Fuma's ninjutsu has decreased.
1'53":  The strength of Fuma's ninjutsu has decreased.
2'11":  Shigemoto Makabe defeated.
2'50":  Fuma's ninjutsu has been successfully neutralized.
2'57":  The Coalition Army and the Zhen Ji Army are advancing.
3'03":  Yoshinobu Satake defeated.
3'26":  Alliance formed with the Zhen Ji Army.
3'38":  Li Meng defeated.
4'02":  Yoshiaki Mogami defeated.
4'09":  Fuma's ninjutsu has been successfully neutralized.
4'47":  Hidetsuna Sakenobe defeated.
5'19":  Enemy phantom soldiers have appeared.
5'39":  The enemy phantom soldiers have been eliminated.
5'42":  Fuma's ninjutsu has been successfully neutralized.
5'58":  Tao Qian defeated.
6'07":  Fan Chou defeated.
6'24":  Zhen Ji is under attack from an unknown assailant.
6'27":  Zhen Ji is confused by the enemy's illusions.
6'37":  Zhen Ji is completely flummoxed.
6'40":  Unique item discovered.
6'44":  Cao Pi defeated.

My Method:

The Sorcerers you need to personally defeat are in the six garrisons 
scattered throughout the map.  Also, the fake Cao Pi will appear when Zhen Ji 
makes her way far enough north on the map.  First, make your way east towards 
Mitsuyasu Shimura.  Defeat him and then continue east towards Mitsuuji Ujiie 
and defeat him.  By this time, the Sorcerers should appear in the garrisons, 
so defeat the Sorcerers inside this garrison and then head back west towards 
the garrison you just cleaned out.  Defeat the Sorcerers inside this garrison 
and head north.  There are two more garrisons here with a bunch of enemy 
officers protecting them.  Knock off the enemy officers and then the 
Sorcerers.  That makes four.  Head east to where Zhen Ji is.  She should be 
fighting Li Meng, Yoshiaki Mogami, and Hidetsuna Sakenobe.  Defeat all three 
of them and then defeat the fifth Sorcerer inside the garrison here.  Now, 
you will probably want to seal off the stronghold in this area to keep enemy 
soldiers from appearing.  This will allow Zhen Ji to continue to move north.  
Eventually, Cao Pi's army will get ambushed by phantom soldiers.  Head to the 
garrison that's in the northern area and defeat the Sorcerer here to get rid 
of the phantoms and give you your sixth Sorcerer kill.  Also, defeat Tao Qiab 
and Fan Chou so they don't harass Zhen Ji.  Now, get Zhen Ji far enough north 
to where the fake Cao Pi appears.  He will "complete flummox" Zhen Ji.  
Sometimes, I think the people who translated this game use words and phrases 
just to try to sound smart.  Either way, get Zhen Ji un-flummoxed by 
defeating the fake Cao Pi.  If you did all of this within 8 minutes, your 
item will appear in the northeastern corner of the map.  Grab your item and 
then head over to the northwestern garrison, where Kotaro Fuma and Dong Zhuo 
are hiding.  Make the both of them pay for using bad strategy and tricks and 
end the stage.

Zhang Liao
----------

Item:  Legend of the White Horse

Stage:  Wei Chapter 3-X - Conquest of Ji Province

Requirements:  Within 3 minutes, defeat Hanzo Hattori, Kotaro Fuma, and
   Kunoichi.  Also, defeat 300 enemies.  There is no time limit on the kills.

Location:  On top of the central platform in the central area of the map.

Time Log:

0'18":  Allied forces have been immobilized.
0'29":  The Resistance Army is advancing.
0'49":  Hanzo Hattori and Kotaro Fuma appear.
0'58":  Kotaro Fuma's ninjutsu has been neutralized.
1'06":  Kotaro Fuma defeated.
1'16":  Hanzo Hattori's ninjutsu has been neutralized.
1'19":  The gates of the northeastern garrison have opened.
1'26":  Hanzo Hattori defeated.
1'35":  Kunoichi appears.
1'42":  Kunoichi is advancing.
1'53":  Hideaki Kobayakawa is advancing.
2'03":  Kunoichi defeated.
3'03":  Hideaki Kobayakawa defeated.
3'33":  Katsunaga Mori defeated.
3'42":  Yukinaga Konishi defeated.
4'57":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts, immediately ride towards the northeastern corner 
of the map.  Take the eastern path and then head north.  This is the quickest 
path.  When you get close to the northeastern fort, Hanzo Hattori and Kotaro 
Fuma will appear.  Kotaro talks too much, so simply pause the game during his 
speeches to conserve time.  Quickly defeat Kotaro and Hanzo and then make 
your way to the northern path.  This is where Kunoichi will appear.  Quickly 
defeat her.  You should have some time to spare, if you are fast enough.  
Now, make your way back down the eastern area of the map and start clearing 
out all of the enemy soldiers and officers trying to reach the central area 
of the map.  You can go save Goemon Ishikawa if you want to, but it's not 
necessary for the item or to complete the stage in a reasonably easy fashion.  
But in all seriousness, if you cannot find 300 kills on this stage, you need 
to return your game.  When you have your 300 kills, grab your item, which 
appears in the central area of the map, which is where you should be at this 
time, and then head north to where Nene is.  Kiyomasa Kato and Masanori 
Fukushima will both be powered up officers, but that's only because they have 
a mommy complex.  Defeat them and then defeat Nene to complete the stage.

Sima Yi
-------

Item:  The Works of Sima Xian

Stage:  Wei Chapter 6 - Battle of Chen Cang

Requirements:  Defeat 200 enemies and, within 3 minutes of each other and in
   order, defeat the two Defense Captains inside the eastern part of the
   castle and then defeat Oichi before Yoshikage Asakura arrives as
   reinforcements.  There is no time limit for the kills.

Location:  On top of the wall that separates the central part of the castle
   from the eastern part of the castle.  The stairs to this wall is located
   on the central part of the castle.

Time Log:

0'13":  The Coalition Army is advancing.
0'23":  The Azai Army is advancing.
0'43":  Da Ji is advancing via the eastern bypass.
0'46":  The eastern gates have opened.
1'04":  Xiahou Dun is preventing the enemy advance at the castle walls.
1'07":  Seize the enemy bases and stop the enemy advance.
1'16":  A base has been captured.
1'25":  Seize the remaining enemy bases.
1'32":  A base has been captured.
1'35":  All enemy bases atop the castle wall have been seized.
1'52":  Enemy reinforcements have arrived.  (Kagekata Uozumi)
2'02":  Defeat Oichi and prevent enemy reinforcements from arriving.
2'26":  Kagekata Uozumi defeated.
2'37":  Oichi defeated.
2'44":  The enemy reinforcements' point of ingress has been seized.
3'04":  Nagashige Tomita defeated.
3'14":  Yoshimune Kawai defeated.
3'29":  The central gates have opened.
3'32":  The western gates have opened.
4'33":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

This is a strange requirement, but you have to be quick about it, as if you 
take too long, Yoshikage Asakura will arrive as reinforcements for Oichi.  
The quickest way to make it to the two Defense Captains on top of the central 
part of the castle is to take the eastern route.  Head directly north, 
without stopping, to the eastern gate and defeat the Defense Captain at the 
eastern gate.  That will open up the gates.  Now, make your way south to the 
two bases on the eastern part of the castle (the central area of the stage).  
The first base is along the eastern wall of the eastern part of the castle.  
The second base is along the western wall of the eastern part of the castle.  
Some people say this area is the central part of the castle, which is kind of 
accurate.  Either way, you need to defeat the two bases that are in the 
central part of the stage.  When you have done this, the timer will start.  
Jump off the ramparts and immediately head for Oichi.  She is located in the 
southwestern part of the stage.  Ignore her subordinates and defeat her 
immediately.  Now, you can leisurely make your way through this stage, 
defeating your 200 enemies.  When you have done this, your item will appear 
on the wall that separates the central part of the castle from the eastern 
part of the castle.  The stairs to this part of the wall is located in the 
central part of the castle, the area that is Masazumi Azai initial position.  
Grab your item, continue your siege of Chen Cang, and defeat Nagamasa Azai 
when you want to end the stage.

Xu Huang

Item:  Silken Headcloth

Stage:  Wei Chapter 1 - Battle of Kuzegawa

Requirements:  Defeat in order Xu Zhu, Xiahou Yuan, and Zhang Jiao and defeat
   500 enemies.

Location:  Inside the northeastern fort, where Da Ji initially starts off at.

Time Log:

1'37":  Danemon Ban defeated.
2'20":  Rairyu Shimozuma defeated.
2'30":  Rairen Shimozuma defeated.
3'27":  Xiahou Yuan appears.
4'58":  Xu Zhu defeated.
5'09":  The gates to the enemy main camp opens.
5'49":  Xiahou Yuan defeated.
5'59":  Toshimitsu Saito defeated.
6'50":  Zhang Jiao defeated.
8'49":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The hardest part about this item is making sure Zhang Jiao doesn't die to the 
computer.  When the stage starts, make your way east and start killing enemy 
soldiers.  Do not defeat too many soldiers near Zhang Jiao and also, do not 
close the stronghold that is in his area.  This will keep the computer from 
reaching Zhang Jiao too quickly.  When you have about 50 kills, make your way 
south and work your way towards Danemon Ban.  Defeat him and the enemy 
soldiers that are in this area.  Make your way to the southern garrison.  
Inside here, defeat Rairyu Shimozuma and Rairen Shimozuma.  Make sure you 
defeat the enemy soldiers as well.  You should be around 150 by now.  Make 
your way towards the southwestern garrison.  Xiahou Yuan will appear north of 
your position.  Ignore him for now and head over to Xu Zhu.  Defeat the 
soldiers that are around him and then make your way north to Xiahou Yuan.  
Defeat some of the enemy soldiers that are around here and then head back to 
Xu Zhu.  More enemy soldiers should have spawned from the gate so defeat 
those soldiers.  You should have over 300 kills by now.  Defeat Xu Zhu and 
make your way back to Xiahou Yuan.  By now, Xiahou Yuan's gate should have 
spawned more enemy soldiers for you to kill, so defeat them along with Xiahou 
Yuan and Toshimitsu Saito.  You should have 350 kills by now.  Make your way 
back north to Zhang Jiao and defeat him.  You should either be close to 400 
kills or over 400 kills.  Either way, make your way to the southwestern 
garrison.  Here is where you will get the rest of your kills.  Huang Gai is 
down here with Nobuchika Chosokabe and Morichika Chosokabe.  Do not defeat 
any of the three officers here.  Instead, keep defeating enemy soldiers.  If 
you defeat the two Chosokabes, the stronghold in this area will stop 
producing soldiers to kill.  When you have your 500 kills, your item will 
appear inside the northeastern fort where Da Ji initially starts off at.  
Make your way back across the map (this seems to be a common theme on this 
stage) to grab your item, then head all the way back across the map to the 
southwestern fort and defeat Huang Gai to end the stage.

Zhang He

Item:  Silver Mirror

Stage:  Wei Chapter 2 - Battle of Tian Shui

Requirements:  Within 9 minutes, defend all three forts, defeat 300 enemies, 
and defeat Bokuzen Ujiie, Morinari Ando, Ittetsu Inaba, Ujisato Gamo, 
Mitsuhide Akechi, and Huang Gai.

Location:  Northeastern corner of the map.

Time Log:

0'13":  Keep the three remaining bases safe at all costs.
0'29":  Bokuzen Ujiie defeated.
1'06":  Morinari Ando defeated.
1'29":  Ittetsu Inaba defeated.
1'38":  Huang Gai defeated.
2'00":  The enemy forces threatening the eastern base have been eliminated.
2'37":  Mitsuhide Akechi defeated.
2'47":  The enemy forces threatening the central base have been eliminated.
2'50":  Alliance formed with the Da Ji Army.
3'22":  Ujisato Gamo defeated.
3'32":  The enemy forces threatening the western base have been eliminated.
5'00":  The main force of the Resistance Army arrives.
5'21":  Resistance Army reinforcements arrive.
5'33":  Toshiie Maeda defeated.
5'40":  The Da Ji Army arrive as reinforcements on the west side.
5'47":  The Da Ji Army arrive as reinforcements.
5'51":  The Da Ji Army arrive as reinforcements on the east side.
6'13":  Morimasa Sakuma defeated.
6'23":  Yasumasa Sakuma defeated.
6'36":  Unique item discovered.


My Method:

The bases you have to protect will fall very quickly, so you will want to 
make sure they are out of danger first before you do anything.  As soon as 
the stage starts, make your way over to the western base.  You can do this by 
heading south and then west or by heading north and then west.  Either way, 
you will want to defeat Bokuzen Ujiie first to protect Cao Zhang.  When he is 
defeated, ignore Ujisato Gamo for now, as he will not move, and make your way 
back to your initial position and then towards the central base, where 
Yoshitsugu Otani is fighting off Morinari Ando.  Defeat Morinari and then 
continue east to where Yue Jin is, ignoring Mitsuhide Akechi in the process 
for the same reasons why you ignored Ujisato Gamo.  Yue Jin will be fighting 
off Ittetsu Inaba, so protect him by defeating Ittetsu.  Huang Gai will now 
appear as enemy reinforcements directly south of the eastern base, so meet up 
with Huang Gai and defeat him to succeed in defending the eastern base.  Now, 
make your way back west, defeating Mitsuhide to defend the central base and 
Ujisato to defend the western base.  By now, you should have 150 to 200 
kills, so the rest of the 5 minutes or so should be spent on getting that 
last 100 enemy kills when Nobunaga Oda arrives with enemy reinforcements.  It 
may take a while for the game to get rid of all the message spam and 
recognize your 300 kills, but when the game does, your item will appear in 
the northwestern corner of the map.  Grab your item and defeat Nobunaga to 
complete the stage.

Zhen Ji

Item:  Ancient Lyre

Stage:  Wei Chapter 5 - Battle of Odawara Castle

Requirements:  Defeat Hideyori Toyotomi, Sun Jian, Patchnose, Lancehead, and
   Sidewinder.  Also, stop the bomb corridor and defeat 200 enemies.

Location:  First floor of the main keep of the castle, just west of the bomb
   corridor.

Time Log:

1'10":  Hideyori Toyotomi defeated.
1'30":  Coachwhip defeated.
2'14":  Mototsuna Kutsuki defeated.
2'40":  Mitsushige Nobesawa defeated.
3'00":  Cao Cao defeated.
3'23":  Copperhead defeated.
4'32":  Bomb corridor deactivated.
4'44":  Patchnose, Lancehead, and Sidewinder appear.
5'46":  Minbu Satomi defeated.
6'31":  Sun Jian defeated.
6'41":  Kazutada Nakamura defeated.
7'30":  Patchnose defeated.
7'55":  Lancehead defeated.
8'26":  Unique item discovered.
8'32":  Sidewinder defeated.

My Method:

You start off on the third floor of the castle.  Make your way down to the 
first floor of the castle and exit the building through the western gate.  
This will make Hideyori Toyotomi appear along with Coachwhip.  You only need 
to defeat Hideyori, but defeating Coachwhip as well will allow Mitsunari 
Ishida to stay alive and clear a path for you later.  When you have cleared 
the western area out, make your way north to where Cao Cao is located at.  
You will want to wait for the bomb corridor to become activated, so you might 
as well kill time by killing off enemy officers in this area.  This will also 
ensure Cao Pi's survival.  Defeat Cao Cao, along with the three generic 
officers in this area to free up your reinforcements from the north.  By now, 
the bomb corridor should activate, so make your way over to the north gate of 
the main keep of the castle.  Enter through the north gate and make your way 
east to where the Defense Captain is.  Defeat him to deactivate the bomb 
corridor.  By now, Da Ji should call for reinforcements, which are three 
generals you need to defeat in order to obtain the item.  Leave the way you 
came in and make your way south.  Mitsunari Ishida should be dealing with the 
storehouse by now, so let him clear that out.  Instead, make your way over to 
Minbu Satomi.  Defeat him to open up the gate he was guarding.  Make your way 
over to where Huang Gai is fighting off Sun Jian.  Defeat Sun Jian and 
Kazutada Nakamura and then make your way to the central gate of Odawara 
Castle.  Defeat Patchnose and Lancehead one after the other and then make 
your way through Da Ji's main camp.  Instead of fighting Da Ji right now, 
simply continue north to where Sidewinder is.  Defeat him to make your item 
appear inside the main keep of the castle.  The fastest way to get there is 
to continue on the northern path back into Odawara Castle and then enter the 
main keep of the castle through the bomb corridor entrance.  Make your way 
north to the room just west of the bomb corridor and grab your item.  Leave 
the main keep the same way you came in and then head directly for Da Ji.  
Defeat her to complete the stage.

Item:  Unbreakable Armor

Stage:  SW Chapter 6-X - Showdown at Odawara Castle

Requirements:  Defeat Urutu and Yellowbelly before they can set off their
   respective ambushes, defeat Ina and Sun Shang Xiang within 2 minutes of
   each other, and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  In the northern room of the southern part of Odawara Castle.

Time Log:

0'15":  Cottonmouth defeated.
1'06":  Mamushi defeated.
1'16":  The Orochi Army appears.
1'37":  Allied forces are advancing.
1'44":  Enemy forces are fleeing.
1'51":  Allied forces are chasing.
2'03":  Urutu defeated.
2'12":  Enemy forces appear.
2'30":  Yellowbelly defeated.
2'40":  Enemy forces appear.
2'53":  Sima Yi's fails.
3'06":  Niu Jin defeated.
3'23":  Wang Shuang defeated.
3'55":  Keelback defeated.
4'29":  Murashige Araki defeated.
5'22":  Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi have appeared in the western garrison.
5'39":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
6'07":  Ina defeated.
6'17":  Sun Shang Xiang defeated.
6'23":  The enemy ambush troops have been defeated.
6'32":  The central garrison gate has opened.
6'48":  The enemy forces advance.
7'01":  Kazutoyo Yamanouchi defeated.
7'36":  Bushmaster defeated.
7'51":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts off, defeat Cottonmouth and Mamushi to get things 
rolling.  The Orochi Army will appear when you have done this.  Make your way 
out of Odawara Castle main gate.  Urutu will appear first and try to run 
south.  Do not let him get very far.  Run him over with you horse and then 
use your C3 attacks to stun him.  Also, if he starts to get some distance, 
try to use your C3 to stun him from afar, since it is a ranged attack.  If 
you follow Urutu too far south, you will get ambushed and you will lose your 
item.  When Urutu is defeated, repeat this process with Yellowbelly.  When 
these officers are defeated properly, you will hear them tell you that they 
are failures and the ambush parties that were supposed to ambush you will 
become clear as day.  When both ambushes fail, Sima Yi will tell you how much 
of a failure he is.  Now, it's simply a matter of clearing out the northern 
area of the map and getting your army towards the central garrison and also 
collecting your 300 kills.  When you get too close to Sima Yi or Zhuge Liang, 
they will disappear and the gates of the central garrison will close.  You 
will get ambushed by Ina and Sun Shang Xiang.  You need to defeat these two 
officers within 2 minutes of each other, which isn't that hard to do, even 
though they both have decent stamina since this is a four star stage.  When 
they have been defeated, the gates to the central garrison will open and the 
enemy will advance.  Make your way south and start clearing out enemy 
soldiers in this area.  You should be able to get the last of your 300 kills 
in this area.  Your item will appear in the southern part of Odawara Castle, 
so make your way back inside the castle.  The item is in the north room of 
this area.  Grab your item and then head back out.  In order to complete this 
stage, you will need to defeat Sima Yi and Zhuge Liang, who are hiding out in 
the western garrison.

Cao Pi

Item:  The Dian Lun

Stage:  Wei Chapter 2-X - Invasion of Nan Zhong

Requirements:  Within 5 minutes, defeat Yukimura Sanada before Zhu Rong
   arrives and then defeat Zhu Rong and Meng Huo.  Also, do not defeat Zhao
   Yun and defeat 400 enemies.  There is no time limit on the 400 kills.

Location:  Northeastern corner of the map.

Time Log:

0'03":  The allied main camp has been isolated.
0'13":  Zhang He is not responding.
0'27":  Zhang He is refusing to move.
0'37":  Hurry to Zhang He's side and convince him to fight.
0'45":  The Resistance Army advances.
0'54":  Yukimura Sanada defeated.
1'04":  Wu Tugu defeated.
1'14":  Zhang Bao defeated.
1'23":  Zhu Rong arrives.
1'30":  Meng Huo arrives.
1'50":  Dailai Dongzhu defeated.
2'16":  Zhu Rong defeated.
2'31":  Defeat the unit attacking Zhang He.
2'48":  Meng Jie defeated.
3'13":  Zhang He is advancing.
3'19":  Meng You defeated.
3'35":  Alliance formed with Zhang He.
3'45":  King Duosi defeated.
4'02":  Meng Huo defeated.
4'08":  Enemy reinforcements have been eliminated.
4'12":  The Zhao Yun unit is advancing.
4'33":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts, make your way east towards Yukimura Sanada.  He 
will need to be defeated first and quickly.  When Yukimura is defeated, also 
defeat Wu Tugu and Zhang Bao.  Also, to make your life easier later on in the 
stage, defeat as many enemy soldiers in this area as you can.  This should be 
really easy to do if you use Cao Pi's really quick and really good horse 
attack.  Do not approach Zhao Yun.  When the southern route is cleared of 
enemies, make your way back west and then north.  Zhu Rong and Meng Huo 
should have appeared by now.  Defeat Dailai Dongzhu on your way to Zhu Rong 
and then defeat Zhu Rong.  Also, clear this area of enemies as well.  
Continue north to where Zhang He is.  He should be fighting off Meng Jie and 
Meng You.  Defeat both members of Meng Huo's family and then make your way 
east towards the allied main camp.  By now, Meng Huo should be here with King 
Duosi.  Defeat both Nanman officers.  You should receive a message that the 
enemy reinforcements have been eliminated and that Zhao Yun will start to 
move.  Also, if you have been killing enemy soldiers in the south, west, and 
north like I have been telling you to, you should have 200 - 300 kills.  The 
northeastern corner of the map should give you 100 and if you need more, 
there are plenty of enemy soldiers around Zhao Yun.  When you achieve your 
400 kills, provided that you did the rest in under 5 minutes, your item will 
appear in the northeastern corner of the map.  Grab your item and then defeat 
Shigenari Kimura and Zhao Yun to end the stage.  You do need to defeat both, 
since the victory condition is to defeat all enemy officers on the map.

Item:  Headstone

Stage:  Shu Chapter 1 - Battle of Ueda Castle

Requirements:  While Zhao Yun has more than 90% of his health, open the gates
   to the escape point by defeating Zhang He and defeat 300 enemies.  You
   cannot have Zhao Yun in your party.

Location:  Northwestern corner of the map.

Time Log:

0'14":  Make for the escape point.
0'17":  Alliance formed with Zuo Ci.
1'13":  Make for the escape point by detouring to the west.
1'23":  Keelback defeated.
1'30":  Niu Jin defeated.
1'43":  Zuo Ci withdraws.
1'50":  Make for the escape point by detouring to the west.
2'09":  Ginchiyo Tachibana appears.
2'16":  Mamushi defeated.
2'49":  Cottonmouth defeated.
4'26":  The enemy forces are advancing.
4'34":  The Ueda Castle defense forces appear.
4'44":  Zuo Ci is acting as a decoy.
4'50":  Wen Pin defeated.
5'00":  All gates of Ueda Castle open.
5'07":  Yue Jin defeated.
5'57":  Xing Daorong defeated.
6'55":  Zhang He appears.
6'58":  The gate to the escape point opens.
7'01":  Unique item discovered.
7'08":  Zhang He defeated.

My Method:

For this stage, you will need to keep Zhao Yun's health high.  Stay by his 
side and lead him until he reaches the southeastern corner of the map.  As 
long as you stay by his side and don't switch out your officer, you will get 
the required kills and eventually run into Zhang He to open up the gates to 
the escape point, located at the southeastern fort.  You start off inside the 
main keep of Ueda Castle.  Defeat the first Defense Captain you come across 
and then make your way up the stairs.  Head down the second set of stairs and 
defeat Keelback to open up the gates.  Make your way outside this part of the 
castle and defeat Niu Jin.  Now, follow Zhao Yun to the northeastern 
garrison, defeating Mamushi along the way.  In the northeastern garrison, 
meet up with Ginchiyo Tachibana.  She will now follow you guys along, 
protecting Zhao Yun.  Also in this area, defeat Cottonmouth.  Head south 
along the eastern path.  When you reach Wen Pin, Cao Ren will realize Zhao 
Yun has escaped and will start sending people your way.  Zuo Ci will reappear 
and help hold off some of the enemy soldiers.  Continue to make your way 
south and defeat Yue Jin when you reach the southern fort.  Now, make your 
way east towards the escape point.  Defeat Xing Daorong along the way.  Now, 
when you reach the southeastern fort, Zhang He will appear.  Defeat him to 
open up the gates to the escape point.  This will make your item appear at 
the northeastern corner of the map.  Do not enter the southeastern fort at 
this time.  This will probably end the stage, as Zhao Yun will probably enter 
there as well.  Instead, take the long way around.  Head west along the 
southern path and then north when you reach the eastern path.  However, 
instead of heading all the way north, when you enter the first underground 
cavern, take the immediately right.  Head east to where Deng Ai and Zuo Ci 
are fighting.  Ignore them or help out Zuo Ci, then make your way north to 
where Cao Ren is.  You cannot use the eastern path as the gates to the 
eastern fort are closed and will not open.  When you reach the main gates to 
Ueda Castle, you will have to defeat a Defense Captain in order to open them 
up.  Do not defeat Cao Ren, as that will end the stage.  Instead, run past 
him and make your way inside the main keep of Ueda Castle.  Head directly for 
the eastern gate of the main keep and defeat the Defense Captain to open up 
this gate.  Make your way into the underground cavern and head for the 
northeastern corner of the map.  You will find your item here.  Now, you can 
head for Zhao Yun and the southeastern fort if you want, but from where you 
are currently at, it is probably easier just to defeat Cao Ren to end the 
stage.

Item:  The Divided Kingdom Scrolls

Stage:  Wu Chapter 3 - Battle of Odani Castle

Requirements:  Defeat Yoshihiro Shimazu, Yoshihisa Shimazu, Toyohisa Shimazu,
   and Iehisa Shimazu within 4 minutes of Sakon Shima succeeding in blowing
   up the wall of the central fort and defeat 100 enemies.  The northwestern
   garrison cannot be captured and the Shimazu ambush unit cannot arrive
   before Sakon Shima succeeds in his plan.  There is no time limit for the
   100 kills.

Location:  Along the eastern path inside Odani Castle, near the stronghold
   that is north of the Kingo Ward.

Time Log:

0'17":  Eradicate all enemy officers from the town.
0'24":  Lei Tong defeated.
0'37":  The Resistance Army is strengthening its defenses.
0'41":  The area has been secured for Sakon Shima's arrival.
1'16":  Zhang Yi is retreating.
1'25":  Sakno Shima arrives.
1'51":  Zhang Bao defeated.
2'26":  Engineers appear.
2'34":  Escort Sakon Shima and his engineers safely to Mt. Yamada Garrison.
2'40":  Li Yan defeated.
3'17":  Hisatake Kabayama defeated.
3'54":  Alliance formed with Sakon Shima.
4'12":  Sakon Shima and his engineers arrive at Mt. Yamada Garrison.
4'22":  Protect Sakon Shima and his engineers and ensure their plan works.
6'09":  Sakon Shima's plan has led to the destruction of the walls of the Mt.
        Yamada Garrison.
6'23":  The Orochi Army advances.
6'29":  All gates of the Minor Ward open.
7'05":  Gan Ning advances upon the Orochi Army.
7'08":  The southern gate of the Kingo Ward opens.
7'27":  Enemy reinforcements arrive.
7'40":  Yoshihisa Shimazu defeated.
7'50":  Iehisa Shimazu defeated.
7'59":  Unique item discovered.
8'02":  Toyohisa Shimazu defeated.
8'14":  Yoshihiro Shimazu defeated.

My Method:

Special thanks to thedarkemissary for pointing out that I had completely 
skipped Zhou Yu's item.  The Shimazu ambush unit will appear when your forces 
succeed in breaking through the gate in the southeast or after Sakon Shima's 
plan succeeds.  Also, the Shimazu ambush unit will not appear if Yoshihiro 
Shimazu is defeated before the plan succeeds.  Therefore, you should not 
approach the southeastern or northwestern areas of the map.  Instead, at the 
start of the battle, make your way east and defeat Lei Tong.  After that, do 
not touch Zhang Yi and simply wait for Sakon Shima to arrive.  When Sakon 
does arrive, clear a path for him and his engineers to the central fort.  
Inside the central fort, defeat Zhang Bao and Li Yan and knock off the Gate 
Captain inside the fort.  I also defeated Hisetake Kabayama and the Gate 
Captains directly north of the central fort as well for insurance purposes.  
While waiting for Sakon to finish up, you may want to make your way to the 
northwestern garrison, but don't fight anyone inside the garrison.  Simply 
wait there for the plan to succeed.  When Sakon is done with his plan, a new 
path will appear from the central garrison.  This will cause the Shimazu 
ambush unit to appear in the northwestern garrison.  It may take some time 
for them to actually appear, so do not defeat Yoshihiro Shimazu too quickly.  
There's a lot of talking that has to be done before the ambush can happen.  
When the Shimazu's finally arrive, defeat Yoshihisa Shimazu, Iehisa Shimazu, 
Toyohisa Shimazu, and Yoshihiro Shimazu within four minutes of Sakon knocking 
down the walls to obtain your item.  Defeat any officers trying to charge out 
and take your main camp (Gan Ning), then make your way inside Odani Castle 
and grab your item.  Defeat Xing Cai to complete the stage.

9'44":  Tomomichi Iwanari defeated.
9'50":  The enemy engineers have been eliminated.
9'53":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Most of the stuff at the beginning is simply to keep your army alive and to 
make the board more favorable for you at the end.  You could always try to 
complete the requirements right away, but odds are, half your army will 
suffer because of it.  When the stage starts, head on out through the central 
garrison and take out Sidewinder and Lancehead.  Then, your next goal will be 
to clear out the eastern side of the central plains.  There are four enemy 
officers in this area, so take them all out.  Your next goal will be to wipe 
out the western area.  Once again, there will be four enemy officers in this 
area.  Try to clear out this area before Masamune Date can call for Keiji to 
charge towards your camp.  When Keiji begins his charge, rush out to meet 
him.  Try to defeat him and the other officer with him, Shigenaga Honjo, 
quickly, as you still need some time at the end to defeat the required 
generals.  Protect your army by defeating Yan Baihu and Chen Lan, as they 
tend to run through your army for whatever reason.  Make your way south 
towards Masamune Date.  When you cross the river, Masamune Date will call for 
enemy engineers to drop boulders on your army.  This is the event you want.  
Make your way back north and head towards Mi Fang.  Defeat him and then 
continue along the path towards Kazuhide Nakamura.  Get to him before the 
Takeda Army can and defeat him to stop the first set of boulders.  Now, jump 
off the cliff and head towards Masamune Date.  He will have some riflemen in 
the area, so it will be kind of annoying to fight him.  Defeat Masamune and 
continue along the path towards the second engineer group.  Da Ji will call 
forth reinforcements, but either ignore them or run them through with your 
swords.  The officer you will want to make sure that dies is Zang Ba.  
Otherwise, he will run directly for your main camp and try to take it while 
you are not paying attention.  When you reach Tomomichi Iwanari, who is the 
second engineer officer, odds are, he will be surrounded by the Uesugi Army.  
You may want to save to make sure you don't get your kill stolen.  When 
Tomomichi is defeated, you should get your weapon, provided you have enough 
kills.  If you have ran this entire stage with Lu Xun, you should have more 
than enough.  Your item will appear in the central fort, so jump down, grab 
your item, defeat Zhong Hui, who will act like Zang Ba and attempt to take 
your main camp without you knowing it, and then just clear out the rest of 
the stage.

Taishi Ci

Item:  Declaration of Loyalty

Stage:  Wu Chapter 5 - Battle of Sekigahara

Requirements:  Capture the four cannons within 4 minutes of the start of the
   stage and then defeat Ina twice, Da Qiao, Sun Shang Xiang, and 300
   enemies.

Location:  Southeastern garrison.

Time Log:

0'25":  Su Fei defeated.
0'43":  Ina advances.
0'49":  The enemy cannons have opened fire.
1'07":  Nagamasa Kuroda defeated.
1'16":  The enemy south cannon captured.
1'19":  The enemy east cannon captured.
1'26":  Yoshimasa Tanaka defeated.
1'32":  The enemy north cannon captured.
2'02":  Chen Shi defeated.
2'08":  The enemy west cannon captured.
2'31":  Ina defeated.
3'42":  Ina resumes her attack.
4'19":  Ina defeated.
5'10":  The Sun Shang Xiang unit appears.
5'29":  Da Qiao defeated.
6'45":  Sun Shang Xiang defeated.
13'20":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Once again, getting the game to recognize your accomplishments will be an 
issue, so you will want to pause during all the speeches to get rid of the 
message spam.  There are four cannons in this area, each one with it's own 
generic officer guarding it and a Defense Captain in the area.  Defeat the 
generic officer first and then take down the Defense Captain to claim the 
cannon.  You do not have to capture the base that is with the cannons.  While 
you are capturing the cannons, Ina will charge out, but deal with her later.  
When all four cannons have been captured, make your way over to Ina, who 
should be near the south cannons.  Defeat her in order to make her retreat.  
You will see her again later.  Things won't happen until Ina arrives a second 
time, which will happen about one minute after you defeat her, so take this 
time to capture some enemy bases to allow your reinforcements to arrive later 
in the battle.  When Ina arrives the second time, she will appear near the 
western cannon.  Defeat her a second time and she will retreat for good.  
Now, make your way south to the southwestern garrison.  When Sun Shang Xiang 
arrives on the battlefield about a minute after Ina is defeated the second 
time, Da Qiao will appear in the southeastern garrison.  Defeat Da Qiao and 
then make your way north to where Sun Shang Xiang is.  Defeat Sun Shang Xiang 
to complete the officer killing portion of retrieving your item.  Now, simply 
get 300 kills by defeating various groups of enemies.  When Sun Quan arrives, 
you should be able to get most of your kills from the reinforcements he 
brings along.  Worst comes to worst, you get the last bit of your kills from 
the enemy bases along the eastern path.  When you achieve 300 kills, your 
item will appear in the southeastern garrison.  Grab your item and head back 
to the northern garrison where Sun Quan is.  By now, your entire army should 
have surrounded him, so just take him out to complete the stage.

Sun Shang Xiang
---------------

Item:  Liu Bei's Armband

Stage:  Wu Chapter 7 - Battle of Komaki-Nagakute

Requirements:  Rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan, then defeat Zhang He, Dong Zhuo,
   Sima Yi, and 300 enemies.

Location:  On the western side of the northern ramparts.

Time Log:

0'13":  Defeat the enemy officers and break into the garrison.
0'20":  Niu Jin defeated.
0'34":  The gates of Iwasaki Castle open.
1'23":  Rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan.
1'14":  Guo Huai defeated.
1'27":  The gates of Komaki Castle open.
1'52":  Rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan.
2'15":  Mi Fang defeated.
2'22":  Patchnose defeated.
2'18":  Fu Shi Ren defeated.
2'34":  The second wave of enemy forces advance upon the decoy units.
2'56":  Alliance formed with the Sun Jian Army.
3'07":  The gates to the western garrison and the southern ramparts open.

3'55":  Zhang He defeated.
4'11":  Zhu Ling defeated.
4'20":  Wen Pin defeated.
5'06":  Hua Xiong defeated by Zhu Huan.
6'03":  Dong Zhuo defeated.
6'09":  The gates of the Haguro Garrison open.
7'06":  Sima Yi defeated.
7'12":  Sima Zhao defeated by Jiang Qin.
7'15":  The gates of the Gakuden Garrison open.
7'18":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The hardest part about this weapon is getting 300 kills on this stage.  With 
some careful planning and some shrewd killing, you should be able to pull it 
off.  First, make your way south to where Niu Jin is and defeat him.  This 
will open up the gate in the southeastern castle.  Make your way west to 
where Guo Huai is and defeat him.  This will open up the northern gate to 
Komaki Castle.  Make your way north and then west towards the southwestern 
fort.  This is where Sun Jian and Sun Quan are at.  There are three enemy 
officers here.  Defeat Fu Shi Ren, Mi Fang, and Patchnose to rescue Sun Jian 
and Sun Quan.  By now, you should have over 100 kills.  The gates of the 
southwestern fort will open after the cut scene, so make your way out through 
the northern gate and then head for the central area of the map.  This is 
where Zhang He will be at.  Defeat Zhang He first and ignore the rest.  
Instead, start killing off enemy soldiers.  Try to avoid killing off enemy 
officers in this area.  Also, keep an eye on the messages that run across.  
When Hua Xiong is defeated, immediately make your way for the northwestern 
garrison where Dong Zhuo is.  You will want to defeat Dong Zhuo before Sima 
Yi, as Dong Zhuo will have Sun Jian's Army all over him while Sima Yi will be 
relatively untouched for most of the stage.  When Dong Zhuo is defeated, make 
your way over to Sima Yi and defeat him.  I got the last of my 300 kills 
while fighting Sima Yi, but if you do not have your 300 kills yet, make your 
way towards the central area of the map and get your kills.  If you have 
cleared out the central area and still need kills, there should be some enemy 
soldiers in the southern ramparts and around the enemy strongholds.  There's 
only about 50 kills around these areas, so if you need more than 50, you 
might want to reset, as there will be no more enemy soldiers appearing.  
Either way, when your item appears, it will appear on the northern ramparts.  
Grab your item and then defeat Da Ji to end the stage.

Sun Jian

Item:  Imperial Seal

Stage:  Wu Chapter 8 - Battle of Koshi Castle

Requirements:  Within 15 minutes, defeat all enemy officers outside Koshi
   Castle before defeating Lu Bu, defeat Lu Bu after he challenges you and
   before he charges out, defeat 300 enemies, and enter the main gate of
   Koshi Castle without having Orochi charge out.  Sun Ce, Sun Quan, and Sun
   Shang Xiang cannot be in your party and cannot be defeated.  Also, only Lu
   Bu has to be defeated personally.

Location:  Inside the inner chamber of Koshi Castle beyond the main gates.

Time Log:

0'15":  The cannons have begun firing.
0'38":  Zhang Yan defeated.

12'54":  Lu Bu is retreating.
13'01":  The southern gate of the northern garrison has opened.
13'04":  The main gate of Koshi Castle has opened.
13'17":  The eastern and western gates of the northern garrison have opened.
13'25":  The main gate of Koshi Castle has opened.
13'28":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

This weapon can be a pain to get.  In order to get the gates to Koshi Castle 
to open the right way, you need to defeat every enemy officer outside of 
Koshi Castle before defeating Lu Bu.  You can only defeat Lu Bu after he 
challenges you to battle and before he charges out.  The only time he will 
challenge you is after Da Ji is defeated.  Therefore, you will need to clear 
out every enemy officer outside of Koshi Castle other than Da Ji and Lu Bu 
first, then defeat Da Ji, then approach Lu Bu to get him to challenge you, 
then defeat Lu Bu.  If you have done this within the 15 minute time span and 
Sun Ce, Sun Quan, and Sun Shang Xiang have survived, your item will appear.  
When the stage starts, immediately defeat Yang Huai and Zhang Yan.  When they 
are defeated, make your way to the cannon north of you and defeat 
Yellowbelly.  This will stop the first cannon.  Now, Sun Shang Xiang will 
begin to march towards the southeastern fort.  If you do not reach the fort 
before the enemy ambush happens at the fort, Sun Shang Xiang will 
automatically get defeated in the enemy ambush.  Make your way east to the 
southeastern fort.  If you are quick enough and good enough, you can defeat 
Song Xian and Xu Rong along the way.  This will help Sun Quan advance further 
east and help you out in the process.  If you reach the fort before the enemy 
ambush, Sun Shang Xiang will laugh off the ambush and piss Dong Zhuo off.  
Now, defeat all three enemy officers in this fort, including Dong Zhuo.  This 
will cause Dong Zhuo to retreat and cause Da Ji to send her army to try to 
take your main camp.  Before you go protect your main camp, you will need to 
finish up clearing this area out of enemy soldiers.  Li Su, Li Jue, and Hu 
Che Er will invade the southeastern fort, trying to take it back.  Defeat all 
three officers to keep Sun Quan, Sun Shang Xiang, and the southeastern fort 
safe.

Make your way west towards where Sun Ce and the Da Ji army are.  First, 
defeat Keelback and stop the enemy cannons in this area.  Then, defeat all 
five enemy officers that are in this area.  This will protect Sun Ce and your 
main camp.  Now, continue north along the western path to where Da Ji is.  
Ignore her for now and instead, take out the enemy cannon that is north of 
her.  Urutu is here, protecting the cannon, so defeat him to stop the cannon.  
Now, continue east to where Lei Bo and Wen Pin are and defeat them.  Take the 
northern route above the northern garrison, since the northern fort is closed 
right now, and defeat Wei Xu.  Continue east to where the northeastern cannon 
is at, defeating Gao Shun along the way.  Inside the northeastern cannon, 
Hognose is here, trying to protect the cannon.  Defeat Hognose and then make 
your way west.  Your next goal is the northwestern fort where Da Ji is.  Da 
Ji will try to send enemy soldiers out to distract you, but simply ignore 
them and defeat Da Ji.  This will cause Lu Bu to decide he wants to challenge 
you.  You will need to make your way inside the northern fort before Lu Bu 
charges out.  If Lu Bu charges out, you will lose your item.  If you have 
made it into the northern fort in time, Lu Bu will close all doors of the 
northern fort and trap you inside with him.  You will need to fight off Lu Bu 
by yourself.  I personally used Sun Jian's C5 and then immediately used his 
fire column special and then repeated the process, but then again, I like 
fire juggling.  When Lu Bu goes down, the northern gate to Koshi Castle will 
open.  Make your way south inside the fortress and then circle around to the 
eastern gate of Koshi Castle.  This is the main gate of Koshi Castle.  
Continue to charge right on through and the main gate will open for you.  
Your item will appear after the main gate opens, provided you have done 
everything within the time span, have your 300 kills, and all members of the 
Sun family have survived.  Now, it's simply a matter of surviving the three 
on one with Orochi and his two subordinates beside him.  When Orochi goes 
down, the stage is completed.

   Koshi Castle before defeating Lu Bu, defeat Lu Bu after he challenges you
   and before he charges out, defeat 300 enemies, and enter the main gate of
   Koshi Castle without having Orochi charge out.  Also, only Lu Bu and the
   officers inside the cannon forts have to be personally defeated.

11'59":  Da Ji defeated by Sun Ce.
12'02":  Da Ji has been slain.
12'05":  The enemy stronghold in the northeastern garrison has been seized.
12'17":  Orochi is preparing for battle.
12'34":  The eastern and western gates of the northern garrison open.
13'00":  Lu Bu enters the fray.
13'13":  Lu Bu defeated.
13'20":  Lu Bu retreats.
13'27":  The southern gate of the northern garrison opens.
13'30":  The main gate of Koshi Castle opens.
13'33":  The eastern and western gates of the northern garrison open.
13'36":  Unique item discovered.


My Method:

You do not have to defeat all of the enemy officers outside of Koshi Castle 
personally, other than Lu Bu, but they must all die before you get to Lu Bu.  
Also, you do need to personally stop all the cannon forts personally.  
Finally, do not defeat Da Ji until everyone else on the map other than Lu Bu 
is defeated.  Otherwise, Lu Bu will challenge you too early and you will not 
have time to defeat everyone.  When the stage starts, make your way north and 
defeat Yang Huai and Zhang Yan.  Now, continue north to where Yellowbelly is.  
This is the first enemy cannon you will need to stop.  Defeat Yellowbelly to 
accomplish this.  Now, Sun Shang Xiang should be advancing towards the 
southeastern garrison.  If she gets there before you get there, then Dong 
Zhuo will capture her, so you will want to make it there before you.  Along 
the way, you can defeat Song Xian and Xu Rong, but only if you think you are 
fast enough to do so.  When you reach the southeastern garrison, Dong Zhuo 
will spring his ambush.  Inside this garrison, defeat Dong Zhuo, Li Meng, and 
Hua Xiong.  This will cause Da Ji to begin her advance.  Since stopping the 
cannons personally is a huge priority, you should ignore the people advancing 
along the eastern path and focus on defeating Keelback, who would be fighting 
Sun Ce at this time.  Head all the way west towards the western path and 
defeat Keelback to stop the second cannon.  When the cannon is stopped, it's 
now time to clear this area out.  Defeat all five generals that are still in 
this area and then make your way north.  Ignore Da Ji for now and instead, 
head for the cannon fort that is above her.  Defeat Urutu, who is inside the 
cannon fort, and then make your way east.  North of Da Ji's fort, defeat Lei 
Bo and Wen Pin.  Now, circle around Lu Bu's fort by taking the northern path 
and then defeat Wei Xu.  Also in this area is Gao Shun, so defeat him as 
well.  Finally, you will come to the last cannon fort.  This is where Hognose 
is.  Defeat Hognose to complete the requirements of capturing all the cannon 
forts.  Now, head south to the southeastern garrison.  There should be three 
enemy officers here that you left behind in order to focus on the cannon 
forts.  Those officers are Li Jue, Li Su, and Hu Che Er.  Defeat these three 
officers and then make your way back to Da Ji.  Defeat Da Ji in order to get 
Lu Bu to make his challenge.  When the gates to the northern fort open, enter 
the northern fort and face off with Lu Bu.  Lu Bu is powerful, but your fire 
slash should put a hurting on him.  When Lu Bu falls, all the gates to Koshi 
Castle will open and you should get your item to appear in Da Ji's fort.  
Backtrack to the fort, collect your item, and then head all the way back to 
Koshi Castle and defeat Orochi to end the stage.

Lu Meng
-------

Item:  The Way of the Warrior

Stage:  Wu Chapter 7-X - Battle of Ji Province

Requirements:  Within 4 minutes, defeat Tadakatsu Honda and 100 enemies.

Location:  Inside the southern garrison that is along the southern path, near
   your initial position.

Time Log:

0'24":  The enemy forces appear prepared to fight to the very end.
0'46":  Munenori Yagyu defeated.
1'06":  Tadatomo Honda defeated.
1'29":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared.
1'55":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared.
2'04":  Tadakatsu Honda's inspirational address has raised the enemy army's
        morale.
2'20":  Tadakatsu Honda has retreated from the front line.
2'23":  Unique item discovered.
2'26":  Tadakatsu Honda defeated.
2'33":  The altar has been successfully claimed.

My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way east and the north along the eastern 
path.  You will run into Munenori Yagyu and Tadatomo Honda.  Defeat them both 
and also collect about 75 kills in this area.  This way, you can collect the 
last 25 kills you need while fighting Tadakatsu Honda.  When you reach 
Tadakatsu Honda in the central altar of the stage, he will gain both defense 
and speed up, making him just that much harder to kill.  Utilize all your 
best attacks and don't forget about Lu Meng's fire arrow special, which can 
lead to fire juggling to help get rid of Tadakatsu's massive amount of life 
points.  Remember, fire doesn't care how high your opponent's defense is, so 
it may be the best way to drain Tadakatsu life faster.  If you defeat the 
giant of a man within 4 minutes of the start of the stage, your item will 
appear along the southern route.  Go grab your item and then make your way 
north towards the northeastern corner of the map.  You will need to do a few 
things before the stage ends.  You will need to defeat Tadakatsu Honda a 
second time in the northeastern area of the map.  He is easier this time 
around since he does not have the defense and speed up, but he can still be a 
handful.  When Tadakatsu goes down a second time, Dong Zhuo will appear with 
enemy reinforcements.  He is the real enemy of the map.  Tadakatsu will 
reappear as an ally this time, so with his help, hunt down Dong Zhuo and 
defeat him to end the stage.

Gan Ning

Item:  Eagle Feather

Stage:  Wei Chapter 7-X - Struggle for Nan Zhong

Requirements:  Within 3 minutes, save Tadamasa Honda and Tadatomo Honda and
   defeat Lu Bu.  Also, defeat 400 enemies.  There is no time limit for the
   400 kills.

Location:  Inside the central fort.

Time Log:

0'14":  Help both Tadamasa Honda and Tadatomo Honda.
0'40":  Yuan Shu defeated.
0'57":  Kojuro Katakura defeated.
1'06":  Tadakatsu Honda appears.
1'13":  Tadakatsu Honda roars.
1'20":  The Orochi Army has been demoralized.
1'21":  Some soldiers of the Orochi Army have defected.
1'31":  The Honda Army is advancing.
1'34":  Alliance formed with the Honda Army.
1'48":  Lu Bu appears.
1'58":  Lu Bu roars at the soldiers of the Orochi Army.
2'36":  Dong Zhuo appears.
2'43":  Lu Bu defeated.
3'04":  Yan Baihu defeated.
3'17":  Gao Shun defeated.
4'04":  Keelback defeated.
6'20":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts, make your way east and then south to the 
southern fort.  This is where Tadamasa Honda and Tadatomo Honda are at.  
Defeat both Yuan Shu and Kojuro Katakura quickly to get Tadakatsu Honda on 
the battlefield.  Also, form an alliance with the Honda Army while you are 
down here.  Pause through all of the speeches to get rid of all the message 
spam.  Also, make sure to avoid enemy officers, as their introduction 
speeches will simply add to the message spam.  Simply defeat enemy soldiers 
in the southern area until Lu Bu appears.  After about a minute and 45 
seconds, Lu Bu will appear in the central area along the eastern path.  Now, 
quickly make your way over to Lu Bu.  You will only have a minute to defeat 
him, but if you're strong enough and good enough, you can pull it off.  When 
Lu Bu goes down, now you can take your time in getting the 400 kills.  First, 
clear out the eastern and southeastern areas.  You should have 200 kills by 
this time.  Now, make your way north along the eastern path and then head 
west, killing all enemies you run across.  When you reach the central path, 
head south.  Both the northern and central enemy strongholds will continue to 
produce enemy soldiers as long as you do not kill the enemy officers in this 
area.  You should get the last of your 400 kills here.  When that happens, 
your item will appear inside the central fort.  Grab your item, protect your 
main base, and then defeat Dong Zhuo to end the stage.

Huang Gai

Item:  Draught of Wu

Stage:  Wu Chapter 4 - Battle of Yi Ling

Requirements:  Defeat Xiahou Dun and 100 enemies.

Location:  

Time Log:

0'07":  The Orochi Army advances south.
0'14":  The Sun Shang Xiang Army advances west.
0'30":  Xiahou Wei defeated.
0'49":  The Resistance Army advances.
1'06":  Xiahou Dun defeated.
1'23":  Xiahou Dun withdraws from the battlefield.
1'54":  Engineers appear.
1'58":  The engineers are on the move.
2'04":  Defeat the engineer unit to thwart the enemy plan.
2'26":  Liu Ye defeated.
2'37":  Xiahou Mao defeated.
2'49":  The engineers have been elimnated.
3'00":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, head south to where Xiahou Dun is.  Defeat Xiahou Wei 
along the way.  Now, make your way over to Xiahou Dun and defeat him.  When 
Xiahou Dun is done for, all that is left to do is to get your 100 kills.  You 
can do this while you are stopping Pang Tong's plans to build a bridge into 
your main camp.  When you get your 100 kills, your item will appear in the 
Stone Sentinel Maze.  If you defeat Pang Tong before he can retreat into the 
maze, then there will be no one inside the maze.  If you do not, there will 
be an ambush party inside the Stone Sentinel Maze, waiting to get you all 
disjointed in terms of your direction.  Remember, inside the Stone Sentinel 
Maze, you will not have your mini map and you will not know your position on 
the start menu map.  Luckily, the item is just along the eastern wall when 
you enter the maze through the northern entrance.  Simply head straight south 
through the maze, hug the eastern wall, grab your item, and then head out 
back north.  Now, it's simply a matter of defeat Xiahou Yuan and then 
defeating the Xiahou brothers a second time.  Nothing else should go wrong on 
this map.

Sun Ce

Item:  The Sun Bin Scrolls

Stage:  Wu Chapter 4 - Battle of Osaka Castle

Requirements:  Within five minutes, rescue Sun Jian and defeat Pang De. 
   After that, defeat 500 enemies.  There is no time limit involved with the
   500 kills.

Location:  Inside the southern fort east of Cao Ren's initial position.

Time Log:

0'24":  The gate to the eastern passage opens.
0'36":  The eastern gate of the main keep opens.
1'08":  The gate to the top floor of the main keep opens.
1'35":  Alliance formed with the Sun Jian Army.
2'05":  Hao Zhao defeated.
2'35":  Cao Zhang defeated.
2'55":  The castle gate opens.
3'43":  Wen Pin defeated.
3'52":  Wang Shuang defeated.
4'02":  Enemy defense forces appear.
4'26":  Pang De defeated.
14'14":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

As with most stages with a short time limit and lots of ground to cover, you 
will probably need to pause the game every time someone starts a long speech 
in order to keep the message spam down.  This way, when you reach Pang De and 
defeat him, you won't get message spam preventing you from getting the credit 
for the kill in time.  As soon as the stage starts, make your way north using 
the eastern passage towards the main keep of the castle.  Sun Jian is being 
held on the top floor, so you must be quick about this.  This should only 
take a minute to complete.  When Sun Jian is rescued, head down to the first 
floor of the main keep.  When the message spam is done, Hao Zhao will appear 
at the main gate of the main keep.  Defeat him to open up the gate.  Head 
outside and you will eventually get jumped by Cao Zhang.  Defeat him to open 
up the main gate of the castle.  Now, immediately, make your way west, 
ignoring all officers along the way.  You will want to reach the area west of 
the western gate.  This will get Pang De to appear near the cannon ward in 
the western area.  In order to get to this area, use the waterway that is in 
the western area instead of defeating the officers to open up the western 
gate.  Also, try to avoid killing officers in this area, as it will only add 
to the message spam (even though I did it and still managed to get the kill 
in time).  When Pang De is defeated and you get credit for it, it's time to 
start killing enemies and officers.  You should get about 350 kills from 
clearing out the inner parts of the castle.  When you reach Cao Ren, you 
should be able to get 150 more as long as you don't defeat Mamushi and Cao 
Ren too soon, as they control the Base Captains in this area.  When you have 
500 kills, defeat Mamushi and Cao Ren, grab your item, which is inside the 
area that Cao Ren started at, and lead Sun Jian to the escape point.

My Method:

When the stage starts, defeat Xing Daorong and then start defeating enemy 
soldiers.  Peasants will appear and then escape when Xing Daorong is 
defeated.  When they reach the escape point, they will drop a meat bun.  Lady 
Samurais will appear next.  Two more enemy officers, Hu Che Er and Yoshikata 
Rokkaku, will appear as well.  Defeat these two officers and then defeat the 
enemy soldiers to allow the Lady Samurai to escape.  When they escape, they 
will give you five meat buns.  Next, more Peasants will appear, along with 
more enemy soldiers and officers.  Defeat Chen Lan and Lei Bo and allow the 
Peasants to escape.  By now, you should have over 100 kills.  When the 
Peasants escape, they drop two more meat buns and a Musou wine.  Now, 
Maidservants will appear.  Of course, the Orochi Army has to appear as well.  
Well, they are just there to pad your kill total, so defeat the three 
officers that show up, along with the soldiers they bring.  This should bring 
you to above 150.  When the Maidservants escape, they will drop five items, 
with three of them being useful temporary stat boosters.  Now, a Village 
Elder will appear.  Four more Orochi officers will also appear.  Finally, 
Kunoichi will join the party and make things more fun.  Defeat the four 
Orochi officers and then defeat soldiers in the Village Elder's path to allow 
him to escape.  He will drop three items for you to use, of which the Speed 
x2 shoes will probably be the most useful.  By now, your kill total should be 
at or around 250.  Yoshimoto Imagawa will appear next.  He is the most sturdy 
of the people who need to escape, so you can actually ignore him instead of 
babysitting him.  Pang De will appear, along with Nagayuki Miyoshi.  Defeat 
the two officers and then escort Yoshimoto to the escape point.  When 
Yoshimoto escapes, he will drop an All Recover, an Attack x2 axe, and a 
Defense x2 armor.  Now, Zhen Ji will appear along with two more enemy 
officers.  If you have your 300 kills, your item will appear.  If not, defeat 
enemy soldiers until you get 300.  The stage ends when you defeat Zhen Ji, so 
save her for last.  Your item will appear in the northwestern part of the 
map, near where you and the peasants initially started at.  Grab your item 
and then defeat Zhen Ji to end the stage.

Xiao Qiao

Item:  Sun Comb

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 7-X - Battle of Kanegasaki

Requirements:  While all allies are still alive, defeat Zhang He, escort the
   Messenger to the escape point, and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  Central area of the map, near the central stronghold.

Time Log:

0'04":  The Orochi Army is advancing on three fronts.
0'07":  Stop the invasion of the Orochi Army.
0'27":  Zhang Ying defeated.
0'50":  Zhang Lu defeated.
1'08":  Messengers arrive.
1'11":  The messengers are on the move to bring reinforcements.
1'14":  Protect the messengers.
1'29":  Zhang He defeated.
1'44":  All forces of the Orochi Army advance.
1'47":  Zhang He is retreating.
2'13":  Guo Jia defeated.
2'27":  Koroku Hachisuka defeated.
2'33":  The messengers are on the move.
2'43":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
2'50":  Chen Gong defeated.
3'14":  Yang Huai defeated.
3'29":  Hooknose defeated.
4'18":  Bushmaster defeated.
4'34":  Yan Pu defeated. 
4'45":  Lu Bu appears.
4'58":  Tadakatsu Honda appears.
5'10":  Lu Bu defeated.
5'19":  Lu Bu is retreating.
5'31":  Tadakatsu Honda has vowed to fight with the Coalition Army.
5'34":  Alliance formed with Tadakatsu Honda.
5'55":  The messengers have successfully escaped.
5'58":  Allied reinforcements are hurrying to Kanegasaki.
6'23":  Wang Lang defeated.
6'29":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The hardest part of this stage is getting your 300 kills.  First, make your 
way towards the southern area of the map, defeating enemies along the way.  
Defeat Zhang Ying and Zhang Lu, along with 50 enemies.  Make your way towards 
Zhang He and defeat him quickly.  You should have about 75 kills by the time 
the Messenger arrives and gets on the move.  Make your way north towards the 
northwestern corner of the map.  Defeat Guo Jia and Koroku Hachisuka.  Enemy 
ambush troops will appear in the northern area of the map.  Start defeating 
these enemy officers and soldiers to ensure the safety of the Messenger.  
There should be three that will ambush you.  When all three are defeated, 
continue heading east.  You will run into Bushmaster and Yan Pu in the 
northeastern area of the map.  Defeat those two enemy officers and then 
continue to make your way to the northeastern fort.  When the Messenger 
enters the fort, Lu Bu will appear.  Keep Lu Bu away from the Messenger, as 
one hit from Lu Bu could very well mean the end of the Messenger.  Tadakatsu 
Honda will appear with his army to help you with Lu Bu.  When Lu Bu goes 
down, the Messenger will retreat.  By now, you should have around 250 kills, 
which is a good thing, since there probably isn't much more than 50 kills 
left on the map.  Start going around and collecting your kills.  Remember, 
there are five soldiers at each enemy stronghold.  When you have your 300 
kills, your item will appear, provided that all allies are still alive.  
Honestly, the only ally that will ever fall into trouble is Yasuharu 
Wakisaka, but you should be able to do everything fast enough to save him 
from Wang Lang.  When you get your 300 kills, the item will appear in the 
central area of the map.  Grab your item and finish off Masamune Date (or 
wait for allied reinforcements and then finish off Masamune, if you still 
need Tadakatsu Honda) to end the stage.

Zhou Tai

Item:  Leather Hood

Stage:  Wu Chapter 7 - Battle of Komaki-Nagakute

0'20":  Niu Jin defeated.
0'33":  The gates of Iwasaki Castle open.
1'05":  Rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan. 
1'11":  Guo Huai defeated.
1'18":  The gates of Komaki Castle open.
1'44":  Rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan.
2'03":  Fu Shi Ren defeated.
2'12":  Patchnose defeated.
2'22":  Mi Feng defeated.
2'41":  The second wave of enemy forces are advancing upon the decoy units.
2'58":  Alliance formed with the Sun Jian Army.
3'08":  The gates to the western garrison and the southern ramparts open.
3'14":  An enemy officer has defected to the Sun Jian Army.
3'43":  Xin Ping defeated.
4'01":  Cai Mao defeated.
4'11":  Zhang He defeated.
4'43":  Defeat the enemy officers and break into the garrison.
4'54":  Sima Yi defeated.
5'00":  The gates of Gakuden Garrison have opened.
5'20":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

To rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan, take the southern route to reach the 
southwestern fort.  First, defeat Niu Jin to open up the gates in to Iwasaki 
Castle in the southeast.  Now, make your way west to the southern castle, 
which is Komaki Castle.  Defeat Guo Huai to open up the gates of Komaki 
Castle.  Now, continue to head west to the southwestern fort.  This is where 
Sun Jian and Sun Quan are at.   Defeat Fu Shi Ren, Mi Feng, and Patchnose to 
rescue Sun Jian and Sun Quan.  Now, make your way north and head towards the 
central area of the map.  Thin out the enemy soldiers in this area to rack up 
your kills to near 200.  When you are close to 200, make your way north and 
into the northern castle.  Head for the northeastern fort where Sima Yi is.  
Defeat him to open up the gates of this fort.  Now, make your way over into 
Da Ji's fort.  If you have 200 kills and have done all of this within 7 
minutes, your item will appear.  Make your way back south to the southern 
ramparts.  Enter through the main gate of the southern ramparts and then take 
the immediate left.  Go up the ramp on the eastern side and that is where 
your item will be.  Now, all that is left to do is to defeat Da Ji.

Ling Tong
---------

Item:  Tunic of Forgiveness

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 6 - Battle of Fan Castle

Requirements:  Within 5 minutes, defeat Zhang He and 100 enemies.

Location:  West of the central fort, just outside the western gate of the
   central fort.

Time Log:

0'07":  Fan Castle has been flooded.
0'33":  Ding Feng defeated.
0'43":  Pan Zhang defeated.
1'01":  The morale of some of the enemy forces is falling.
1'07":  Chen Shi defeated.
1'22":  Defeat the enemy officers in the front line, and create panic in the
        enemy ranks.
1'29":  Some of the enemy forces have deserted.
1'35":  Some of the enemy forces have deserted.
1'45":  Yue Jin defeated.
1'54":  Some of the enemy forces have deserted.
2'04":  The front line unit led by Sun Quan is retreating.
2'30":  Naoyasu Akaza defeated.
2'47":  Cao Pi has transferred floodgate defense unit to the front lines.
2'53":  Yu Jin defeated.
3'04":  Nobunaga Oda has ordered an attack on the floodgates.
3'11":  Advance to the floodgates via the northern bypath.
3'14":  The access gates to the floodgates open.
3'26":  Unique item discovered.
3'36":  Zhang He defeated.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts, make your way south and quickly defeat Ding 
Feng, Pan Zhang, and Chen Shi.  You don't have to do this, but it will make 
the stage easier later on, as Sun Quan will retreat because of this and some 
of the defense forces around the floodgates will leave.  Also, this is a good 
way to get some quick kills early on.  Once the frontline has been defeated, 
quickly make your way north towards the northern path.  Sun Quan will retreat 
and Cao Pi will reposition his forces, but this can take a while and people 
talk too damn much.  Simply defeat any enemy officers that are in your way 
until you reach Yu Jin, who is guarding the entrance to the floodgates.  
Defeat Yu Jin to get these gates to open.  It is inside the floodgates where 
you will find Zhang He.  You should have 100 kills easily by this time, so 
defeating Zhang He will make your item appear just west of the central fort.  
Defeat Zhang Yan and Fu Shi Ren while you are here to defeat the enemy's 
flood attack and then make your way south towards the central fort.  When you 
grab your item, now it's simply a matter of finishing the stage.  Xiahou Dun 
will appear as enemy reinforcements, changing the requirements for victory to 
defeating Xiahou Dun and Cao Pi.  Defeat both of these officers to end the 
stage.

4'49":  Da Ji retreats.
5'13":  All gates of the Orochi Army main camp open.
5'20":  Lancehead defeated.
5'30":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

First, make your way east along the southern path.  When you get close to the 
enemy base, Zhang Yan will appear as an ambush unit.  Defeat Zhang Yan and 
then continue towards the enemy main camp.  Zhang Ying will be ordered to 
advance.  Defeat Zhang Ying and then make your way over to Sima Yi.  Defeat 
Sima Yi and Hooknose.  Now, Da Ji will defect soon, so make your way over to 
her.  She will be fighting off Li Su.  Defeat Li Su and then defeat Da Ji 
when she defects.  After Da Ji is defeated, Dong Zhuo will create two more 
ambushes.  The first one will appear near the central stronghold and will 
consist of Xu Rong and Hua Xiong.  The second one will appear inside the 
southeastern garrison and consist of Hu Che Er and Coachwhip.  Defeat Xu Rong 
and Hua Xiong first.  After they are defeated, make your way to Hu Che Er and 
Coachwhip and defeat them.  Now, it's simply a matter of waiting for your 
item to appear in the southeastern garrison.  Grab your item, defeat Zhuge 
Liang on Mt. Tenno, and then defeat Dong Zhuo to end the stage.

Lu Bu
-----

Item:  Hero's Armor

Stage:  Wu Chapter 8-X - Battle of Chi Bi

Requirements:  Within 9 minutes, defeat 1000 enemies.

Location:  Inside the allied main camp, near Ieyasu Tokugawa's starting
   point.

Time Log:

0'32":  Defeat the enemy officers stationed in the south of the battlefield.
0'38":  Lu Kuang defeated.
0'55":  Chen Lan defeated.
1'12":  Lei Bo defeated.
1'22":  100 KOs.
1'33":  Lu Xun appears as reinforcements for the Coalition Army.
1'52":  Sidewinder defeated.
2'08":  The southern region of the battlefield has been successfully annexed.
2'29":  Masamune Date is advancing.

5'35":  500 KOs.
6'25":  600 KOs.
6'59":  700 KOs.
7'32":  800 KOs
8'15":  900 KOs.
8'53":  1000 KOs
9'03":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Since so many people have had problems with this item, this is the only time 
I have documented what times I had when I achieved a certain amount of kills.  
These are tentative based on my math and not the History log, since the 
History log doesn’t record your kill achievements anymore.  You have 9 
minutes to get 1000 kills.  This is not a lot of time, but with some prep 
work before hand and a good hand at setting things up, this shouldn't be too 
hard.  First off, make sure your weapon is either a powered up third or 
fourth weapon WITH the Bolt element WITHOUT the Multi element.  This way, 
when you kill enemies, they will fall to the ground and disappear faster 
instead of flying off the screen.  This will save a couple of seconds each 
time you kill a group of enemies, and when you multiply a couple of seconds 
by 1000 kills, the time adds up and can mean the difference between your item 
appearing and you cursing the game out.  As for the set up work, your goal is 
to get rid of the four generals in the southwestern area of the map and then 
make your way over to the gate near Masamune Date's starting position after 
Masamune Date leaves this area.  You don't want Masamune Date in this area 
because if you kill him, his gate will stop spawning enemy soldiers and there 
isn't a better gate on the map than his.  First, make your way west and 
defeat the four enemy officers in this area.  Defeat them quickly, as you 
want to have as much time on the clock as possible to get your kills.  You 
should get about 100 kills in this area as well.  Defeat those four officers 
within 1 minute and 30 seconds and then make your way over to Masamune Date.  
By the time you reach him, he should be moving out, so ignore him.  Again, do 
not kill him.  If you do, you are screwed.  Make your way to the gate he was 
near and then lure the Base Captain out.  You can do this by holding the 
guard button and then backing up and when he's far enough out, simply jump 
over him and make your way to the base he was guarding.  Base Captains have a 
very small range of vision, so if you have lured him out far enough, you 
don't have to worry about it.  Now, simply kill the enemy soldiers using your 
C4 attack.  Lather, rinse, and repeat until you have 1000 kills.  After you 
have done this, your item will appear inside the allied main camp.  Make your 
way back south and grab your item.  Now, you can approach this map a couple 
of ways.  You can either head directly for Da Ji and Orochi and defeat them 
or you can succeed in the fire attack, clear the map out of enemy officers, 
and have a complete victory over Orochi.  The choice is yours.

Dong Zhuo

Item:  Goblet of Paradise

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 3 - Battle of Kyushu

Requirements:  Defeat Sakon Shima, Xiao Qiao, and Okuni in order within five
   minutes and defeat 300 enemies.  There is no time limit for the 300 kills.

Location:  Along the central path that is north of Yu Ji's initial position
   and leads diagonally north towards the northwestern fort, just past the
   bridge that is along this path.

Time Log:

0'05":  Advance on three fronts, and defeat the enemy forces.
0'21":  The enemy forces appear prepared to fight to the very end.
0'29":  Kuai Liang has ordered the release of rolling boulders.
0'52":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared.
0'56":  Sakon Shima's strategy has led to the collapse of the bridge.
1'17":  Bo Zhang defeated.
1'39":  Zhang Liang's sorcery has triggered falling boulders.
1'49":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared.
1'52":  The gates of the northern garrison have opened.
2'15":  Sakon Shima defeated.
2'27":  Gao Sheng defeated.
2'44":  The gates of the western garrison have opened.
2'51":  A peasant militia has come to the aid of Xiao Qiao.
3'24":  Zhang Liao's sorcery has triggered the eruption of geysers.
3'27":  Xiao Qiao defeated.
3'42":  Okuni's dance has raised the morale of the enemy forces.
3'55":  Kanetsugu Naoe arrives.
4'26":  Okuni defeated.
6'13":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

As soon as the stage starts, immediately make your way towards the 
northwestern corner of the map.  Ignore everyone along your way there.  When 
you reach the northwestern garrison, an ambush party will pop out.  Defeat Bo 
Zhang and the Defense Captain in front of the northwestern fort.  This will 
open up the gates to the northwestern fort...eventually.  It takes some time 
for everyone to stop talking and for action to start happening.  Inside the 
fort, defeat Sakon Shima.  Once Sakon Shima is defeated, make your way south 
to the fort where Xiao Qiao is at.  Defeat the Defense Captain to open up the 
gates.  Peasant troops will appear around Xiao Qiao when you enter the fort, 
but they are simply more kills for your kill total.  Defeat Xiao Qiao quickly 
and then leave this fort through the eastern gate.  Make your way east to the 
next fort and then leave this fort through the northern gate.  This will take 
you to Okuni.  If you defeat her within the five minute mark, then you don't 
have to worry about the time anymore.  Leisurely finish up the stage, while 
getting your 300 kills.  When you get the last of your 300 kills, your item 
will appear along the path that lead to the northwestern fort from the 
central path.  It is the path that is just north of Yu Ji's starting position 
and is just past the bridge that is on this path.  After you grab your item, 
the only thing left to do is deal with Zhang Jiao and his magic.  When Zhang 
Jiao is defeated, the rebel forces will be put down and the stage will end.

3'04":  Defeat Lu Bu and protect the peasants.
3'11":  Lu Bu defeated.
3'30":  Tadakatsu Honda appears.
3'47":  Yuan Shao's achievements have inspired Yukimura Sanada.
4'08":  Dong Zhuo appears.
4'15":  The Orochi Army is using the new western bridge to advance.
4'23":  The Orochi Army appears.
4'57":  Dong Zhuo is advancing.
5'06":  The peasants have escaped.
5'09":  The peasants have escaped.
5'16":  Fan Chou defeated.
5'32":  Dong Zhuo defeated.
5'38":  Yuan Shao's achievements have inspired Yukimura Sanada.
5'51":  The Orochi Army appears.
5'54":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You will want to get as many kills as possible before Dong Zhuo appears, 
because the stage ends when the Peasants reach the escape point and they 
normally make a run for the escape point when Dong Zhuo is defeated.  When 
the stage starts, defeat Hognose and Boomslang to get the peasants moving.  
Don't forget to kill the enemy soldiers while you are doing this.  When the 
peasants start to head east, follow them.  Eventually, Coachwhip and 
Diamondback will ambush them.  Defeat these two enemy officers to get the 
peasants moving again.  Also, defeat the enemy soldiers that are in this area 
to pad your kill total.  When the peasants head south and cross the bridge, 
Lu Bu will appear.  Lu Bu is a tough fight, but Tadakatsu Honda will appear 
to help you out with him.  Focus only on Lu Bu and defeat him, as you will 
want to keep some people around him to block the peasants from retreating too 
quickly.  By now, you should have over 200 kills.  As soon as you defeat Lu 
Bu, start making your way west.  You can help out Yukimura Sanada if you 
want.  However, I left Yukimura on his own and used the bridge that is along 
the western path that forms when the boulder cut scene happens.  Either way, 
when Dong Zhuo appears, make your way over to him right away.  Defeat Dong 
Zhuo quickly, as you will need time to make it to your item.  While fighting 
Dong Zhuo, since you will be surrounded by lots of soldiers and enemy 
generals, you should get your 300 kills here, if you use a combination of 
Yuan Shao's power up special move and his C5.  When Dong Zhuo goes down, 
immediately get on your horse and make your way over to the western side of 
the map.  Your item will appear here, which simply means the programmers of 
this game hates you.  If you did everything quick enough, you should have 
enough time to grab your item before the last peasant escapes.

Meng Huo
--------

Item:  Crown of Nan Zhong

Stage:  Shu Chapter 6-X - Battle of Tetorigawa

Requirements:  While all swordsmen are still alive, defeat in order Zhang He,
   Ina, and Lu Bu and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  Just passed the southeastern bridge, near Ina's initial position.

Time Log:

0'16":  Musashi Miyamoto is struggling.
0'33":  Musashi Miyamoto is advancing upon Funaoka Castle.
0'40":  Zhang He defeated.
0'47":  Alliance formed with the swordsman troop.
1'17":  Mi Fang defeated.
1'48":  Hidetsuna Sakenobe defeated.
2'11":  Minbu Satomi defeated.
2'46":  Ina defeated.
2'57":  Yue Jin defeated.
3'07":  Wang Shuang defeated.
3'17":  Mitsuuji Ujiie defeated.
3'51":  Mitsuyasu Shimura defeated.
5'16":  Unique item discovered.
5'24":  Lu Bu defeated.

My Method:

If you had problems getting Musashi Miyamoto, this will be even more of a 
pain.  All the swordsmen must survive, which means none of the yellow troops 
can be defeated.  Luckily, you do not have to succeed in the flood attack to 
get this item.  As soon as the battle starts, make your way immediately 
south.  Ignore Mitsunao Tateoka and defeat Zhang He immediately.  Now, make 
your way east towards Munenori Yagyu and defeat all the enemies around him.  
Ina will eventually be lured out, so after Munenori Yagyu is safe, locate Ina 
and defeat her.  Save your game right now, as now it's simply a matter of 
defeating 300 enemies without letting your allies die.  The swordsmen suck at 
surviving, so they will die pretty easily.  When you have 250 kills, make 
your way to Lu Bu and try to defeat him as quickly as possible.  You should 
get your 300 kills here while fighting Lu Bu.  When Lu Bu goes down, as long 
as all the swordsmen have survived, your item will appear.  Now, you don't 
have to worry about the swordsmen surviving anymore.  Simply let those 
dumbasses die while you complete the stage.  Your item will appear right 
passed the southeastern bridge.  Once you get your item, you can succeed in 
the water attack if you want, or you can simply defeat all the enemy officers 
along the river to get things moving.  Once your allies start focusing on 
Mitsunari Ishida, make your way north to him and defeat him to end the stage.

Zhu Rong
--------

Item:  Wings of the Fire God

Stage:  Shu Chapter 5-X - Battle of Jie Ting

Requirements:  Before the pincer attack is successful, defeat Sun Shang Xiang
   and 300 enemies.

Location:  The southern part of the western area of the map.

Time Log:

0'05":  The Coalition Army advances.
0'11":  The eastern unit's progress is blocked.
0'22":  The western unit's progress is blocked.
0'34":  Lure the enemy forces to the center of the battlefield.
0'40":  Zhang Xiu defeated.
0'47":  The eastern allied unit has halted its advance.
0'53":  The western allied unit has halted its advance.
1'12":  Masamune Date is gathering his forces in the center.
1'23":  The Orochi Army advances.
1'26":  The eastern allied unit has resumed its advance.
1'33":  The western allied unit has resumed its advance.
1'36":  Continue to lure the enemy forces to the center of the battlefield.
1'48":  Masamune Date is continuing to concentrate his forces in the center.
2'01":  Hold the center of the battlefield.
2'04":  The eastern allied unit has accelerated its advance.
2'10":  The western allied unit has accelerated its advance.
2'30":  Zhang Wei defeated.
2'47":  Sun Shang Xiang defeated.
2'57":  Kojuro Katakura defeated.
3'06":  Dong Xi defeated.
3'39":  Tsunamoto Oniniwa defeated.
3'48":  Cao Xing defeated.
3'54":  The flank units are advancing upon Masamune Date.
4'25":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way towards the central area of the map and 
defeat Zhang Xiu.  Now, while waiting for Masamune Date's army to head for 
the center of the map, start killing enemy soldiers.  Eventually, Masamune 
will order his troops to overload the center of the map.  Now, start killing 
off the enemy officers that enter the center of the map.  While you are 
killing enemy officers, make sure to kill regular soldiers as well.  
Eventually, you will run into Sun Shang Xiang.  You should have enough time 
to defeat Sun Shang Xiang and the 300 enemies before the pincer attack works.  
When you have succeeded in this, wait for the pincer to happen.  When it 
does, your item will appear in the western area of the map.  Grab your item 
and then make your way into the enemy main camp.  Defeat Masamune Date to 
complete the stage.

4'12":  The gate to the southwestern cannon fortress open.
4'26":  Yellowbelly defeated.
4'39":  Urutu defeated.
4'53":  Masamune Date is rallying the troops of the Date clan.
5'02":  Fear is driving the Orochi Army to fight ferociously.
5'05":  Orochi Army ambush troops have appeared.
5'32":  Patchnose defeated.
6'00":  An enemy cannon fortress has been seized.
6'03":  Allied defense captains appear.  Preparations have begun for firing
        the cannons.

        the cannons.
9'51":  All cannon fortresses have been seized.  The cannons are ready to be
        fired.
9'59":  The cannons have opened fire on Koshi Castle.
10'25":  The bridge to Koshi Castle has collapsed.
10'35":  The canons have ceased firing.  The Coalition Army advances.
10'58":  Lu Bu defeated.
11'09":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

To get to Lu Bu, you will need to secure all the enemy cannons to get the 
gates to Koshi Castle to open.  First, make your way west and clear out the 
three Orochi officers that try to advance on your main camp.  They are 
Sidewinder, Hognose, and Coachwhip.  When they are all defeated, make your 
way to Keiji Maeda, who should have charged out by now.  Defeat him and then 
make your way to the cannon he abandoned.  Defeat Mitsunaga Irobe, who is the 
officer that replaced him, to seize the first cannon.  Head for the 
southwestern fort and defeat Copperhead there.  Now, make your way over to 
Yellowbelly and Urutu, who should be charging out to try to take back the 
cannons you already have.  Defeat them both.  Now, seize the cannon that is 
in this area by defeating all of the enemy soldiers that are inside the 
cannon fort.  Once this cannon is in your possession, make your way north and 
defeat Patchnose.  Continue north to the northern two forts.  Defeat Keelback 
in the southernmost of the two forts and then make your way to the cannon 
fort, which is where Da Ji is.  She will attempt to stop you by dropping 
boulders on you, but you shouldn't even have to worry about this.  Enter the 
cannon for and defeat Da Ji for your third cannon.  Now, make your way east 
along the northern route.  Inside the northern fort, defeat Diamondback.  Use 
the eastern exit of the northern fort to make your way to the fort that is 
being guarded by Masamune Date.  Defeat Masamune to capture the fourth and 
last cannon fort.  This will cause all the cannons to fire at Koshi Castle, 
which will open up all the gates of Koshi Castle.  Enter Koshi Castle through 
the eastern gate and face off with Lu Bu.  When Lu Bu is defeated, if you 
have 300 kills (which you should by now), the item will appear in the 
southernmost of the two northwestern forts.  Make your way over to the fort, 
grab your item, and then finish off Orochi to complete the stage.

Orochi
------

Item:  Serpent's Elixir

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 8-X - Battle of Bai Di Castle

Requirements:  Within 8 minutes, take the northern route to Bai Di Castle,
   make your way through the Stone Sentinel Maze, defeat Lu Xiang, capture
   Bai Di Castle, and then defeat Yan Baihu, Magobei Fuse, Murashige Araki,
   Yan Pu, Tatsuoki Saito, Yoshimasa Oka, Patchnose, Hooknose, and 200
   enemies.

Location:  Along the eastern most of the two central paths.

Time Log:

0'07":  Lay siege to Bai Di Castle.
0'18":  The No Army advances.
0'24":  Orochi Army reinforcements are approaching.
0'28":  Hurry and lay siege to Bai Di Castle before the reinforcements
        arrive.
0'34":  Sidewinder defeated.
0'41":  The Stone Sentinel Maze has been entered.
1'08":  Enemy phantom soldiers appear.
1'17":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
1'24":  Enemy forces have triggered rolling boulders.
1'36":  The enemy phantom soldiers have been eliminated.
1'39":  The gates to the Stone Sentinel Maze open.
2'22":  Lu Xiang defeated.
2'28":  The northern gates of Bai Di Castle open.
2'35":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
2'47":  boomslang defeated.
2'57":  Bai Di Castle has been captured.
3'20":  Reinforcements have appeared for the Orochi Army.
3'24":  The southern gates of Bai Di Castle open.
3'27":  The eastern gates of Bai Di Castle open.
3'53":  Sadaoki Ise defeated.
4'06":  Magobei Fuse defeated.
4'16":  Yan Baihu defeated.
4'38":  Kotaro Fuma appears.
4'45":  Murashige Araki defeated.
4'59":  Alliance formed with the No Army.
5'06":  Yan Pu defeated.
6'30":  Yoshimasa Oka defeated.
6'39":  Yasuie Namikawa defeated.
6'48":  Hooknose defeated.
7'00":  Kotaro Fuma defeated.
7'09":  Patchnose defeated.
7'19":  Reinforcements appear for the Orochi Army.
7'28":  The Orochi Army advances.
7'31":  Unique item discovered.
7'37":  Tatsuoki Saito defeated.

My Method:

You will want to take Bai Di Castle in under 3 minutes, as that will leave 
you 5 minutes to go hunting down reinforcement officers.  As soon as the 
stage starts, defeat Sidewinder.  Make your way into the Stone Sentinel Maze.  
Head straight, then left, then keep going straight and right until you reach 
the center.  Destroy the golden statue, then leave the way you came in to the 
entrance of the maze.  Defeat the Sorcerer and the doors to the maze will all 
open up.  It should be easy to escape the maze now.  Make your way to the 
northern gate of Bai Di Castle and then defeat Boomslang.  This will capture 
Bai Di Castle and begin triggering the enemy reinforcements.  Now, it's time 
to hunt down enemy officers.  First, head east and defeat Yan Baihu, Magobei 
Fuse, and Murashige Araki (and probably Sadaoki Ise, if he gets in the way).  
Make your way south along the eastern path and defeat Yan Pu.  Now, continue 
to head south and then take the southern path west towards the central path.  
Take the central path north to where three of the officers you need to defeat 
are at.  Yoshimasa Oka, Patchnose, and Hooknose are here, along with Kotaro 
Fuma and Yasuie Namikawa, who you do not have to defeat.  Still, you might as 
well defeat them anyways, since they are in the way.  Also, another problem 
in this area are the rolling boulders.  You probably won't have time to stop 
them, so simply just ignore them and don't try to let it become too much of a 
distraction.  When all the enemy officers in this area are defeated, make 
your way south and then west towards the western path.  Defeat Tatsuoki Saito 
to make your item appear.  It will appear on the easternmost of the two 
central paths.  Grab your item, take down Lu Bu, and then defeat Da Ji and 
Orochi to complete the stage.

Da Ji
-----

Item:  Sacrificial Altar

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 2-X - Battle of Kawanakajima

Requirements:  Defeat Ieyasu Tokugawa, Dong Zhuo, and Sima Yi.

Location:  Along the path north of Zenkoji.

Time Log:

0'37":  Ma Chao is fighting bravely to save the peasants.
0'50":  Guo Huai defeated.
0'59":  Wang Shuang defeated.
1'14":  Zhong Hui defeated.
1'23":  Alliance formed with the Ma Chao army.
1'39":  All enemy forces surrounding the river has been eliminated.
1'42":  The peasants are advancing toward Zenkoji.
1'54":  Ensure that the peasants stay alive.
2'27":  The Tokugawa unit has arrived in the northeast.
2'34":  The Dong Zhuo unit as arrived in the southeast.
2'48":  Li Meng defeated.
3'01":  Dong Zhuo defeated.
3'10":  The peasants are rooted to the spot in fear.
3'13":  Defeat the Orochi Army reinforcements and keep the peasants moving.
4'24":  Masanobu Honda defeated.
4'34":  Kazumasa Ishikawa defeated.
4'40":  Ieyasu Tokugawa defeated.
4'50":  The peasants are on the move once more.
5'33":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared in the Stone Sentinel Maze.
5'45":  The gates of the southeastern garrison have opened.
6'04":  Xin Pi defeated.
6'10":  Sima Yi defeated.
6'19":  Sima Zhao defeated.
6'33":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

This stage is a pain simply because of the fact that the Peasants die really 
easily.  When the stage starts off, you will need to head south towards the 
central plains.  Defeat Guo Huai, Wang Shuang, and Zhong Hui in the central 
plains to get the Peasants to start fleeing.  When the Peasants reach the 
central plains, enemy reinforcements will arrive in the form of Dong Zhuo and 
Ieyasu Tokugawa.  Defeat the Dong Zhuo army first.  The Dong Zhuo army has a 
straight shot to the Peasants while Gongsun Yue will block the Tokugawa army.  
Make your way back to the Peasants to make sure they are alright and then 
tackle the Ieyasu Tokugawa army.  Now, immediately head south to the 
southeastern garrison.  When the ambush happens in the Stone Sentinel Maze, 
the gates to the southeastern garrison will open.  Defeat Sima Yi along with 
everyone else in this area.  The item will appear in Zenkoji.  Make your way 
through the Stone Sentinel Maze and defeat Niu Jin and Deng Ai.  The Peasants 
will immediately run through the Stone Sentinel Maze and attempt to escape 
through Zenkoji.  Make your way through the Stone Sentinel Maze and get to 
Zenkoji before the Peasants do.  Grab your item and let the Peasants escape 
to complete the stage.

Item:  Six Coins

Stage:  Shu Chapter 7 - Battle of Edo Castle

Requirements:  Defeat Zhang Fei and Guan Yu and reach the top floor of the
   main keep within 8 minutes and defeat 300 enemies.  There is no time limit
   on the 300 kills.

Location:  At the very back of the top floor of the main keep of the castle.

Time Log:

0'13":  The Matabei Goto unit is advancing upon the southern gate of Edo
        Castle.
0'16":  The southern gate of Edo Castle has opened.
0'23":  Ma Liang defeated.
0'34":  The defense of the southern gate of Edo Castle has been strengthened.
0'44":  The Matabei Goto unit is advancing toward the eastern gate of Edo
        Castle.
0'47":  The enemy forces within Edo Castle have been lured by the decoy and
        are changing directions.
0'59":  Sun Ce arrives.
1'09":  Sun Qian defeated.
1'22":  Ma Su has strengthened the defenses of the keep and the main keep.
1'30":  The defense of the northern and eastern gates of Edo Castle has been
        strengthened.
1'33":  The eastern gate of Edo Castle has opened.
1'51":  The northeastern gate of Edo Castle has opened.
2'08":  The Matabei Goto unit has broken through the eastern gate of Edo
        Castle.
2'15":  Yang Yi defeated.
2'28":  Coachwhip defeated.
2'49":  The northern gate of Edo Castle has opened.
2'56":  Fei Yi defeated.
3'06":  Diamondback defeated.
3'22":  The Orochi Army has responded to the challenge and is charging forth.
3'29":  Alliance formed with the Sun Ce Army.
3'35":  Zhang Fei stands undaunted, blocking the path forward.
3'38":  The gate to the main keep has opened.
3'45":  Zhang Fei defeated.
4'50":  Jiang Wan defeated.
5'24":  Guan Yu stands undaunted, blocking the path forward.
5'31":  The door to the top floor of the main keep has opened.
5'38":  Guan Yu defeated.
5'45":  All doors of the main keep have closed.
5'49":  Enemy ambush troops have appeared in the main keep.
6'11":  Shigenaga Honjo defeated.
6'17":  The gate to the main keep has opened.
6'20":  The door to the top floor of the main keep has opened.
6'27":  Shigezane Date defeated.
6'33":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You will want to gain your 300 kills before completing the other parts of the 
requirements, as the weapon will appear on the top floor of the main keep of 
the castle.  First, head north and defeat Ma Liang.  Make your way inside Edo 
Castle and start defeating the enemies that have been lured to this area.  
This will be a good place to start collecting kills.  Slowly make your way 
north towards the northeastern corner of the castle.  Once there, defeat 
Coachwhip and Yang Yi.  Continue along the northern path of the castle and 
defeat Fei Yi.  Open up the northern gate and then make your way outside and 
defeat Diamondback.  All the while, you should be collecting kills.  Make 
your way over to Zhang Fei.  By now, you should have close to 150 kills.  
Zhang Fei will be a tough person to break.  He has the hyper armor special 
skill because he is a power type officer, so once he starts attacking, only 
charge attacks and special attacks can stop him.  Use your counter attack 
here to knock him away and then hit him before he can hit you.  When Zhang 
Fei is defeated, the gate to the main keep will open.  Try to have around 200 
kills by the time you enter the main keep.  Once inside the main keep, defeat 
Jiang Wan first.  Make your way up the stairs and fight Guan Yu.  The same 
strategy you used against Zhang Fei will work against Guan Yu.  When Guan Yu 
is defeated, the door to the top floor of the main keep will open.  Make your 
way up there and you will get ambushed by three enemy officers.  Defeat those 
officers to open up the gates to the main keep so you can escape.  Make sure 
you can grab your 300 kills inside the main keep, as the item will appear on 
the top floor.  Once you get your item, make your way outside the main keep 
of the castle and defeat Da Ji and Zhuge Liang to complete the stage.

Stage:  Wu Chapter 3-X - Battle of Jian Ye Castle

Requirements:  While No's health is above 50%, defeat Dong Zhuo, Zhen Ji,
   Masamune Date, and 100 enemies.

Location:  The northern area of the southern part of the map.

Time Log:

0'20":  Enemy officers have emerged from the stronghold.
0'37":  Yan Baihu defeated.
0'53":  Dong Min defeated.

1'13":  Hu Che Er defeated.
1'22":  Li Jue defeated.
1'32":  Fa Zheng defeated.
1'47":  Enemy messengers have been sent for reinforcements.
1'51":  More enemy messengers have appeared.
2'04":  Defeat the enemy messengers and prevent the reinforcements from
        arriving.
2'07":  Messenger defeated.
2'10":  Messenger defeated.
2'20":  Messenger defeated.
2'38":  Enemy messengers reappear.
2'41":  Enemy messengers reappear.
2'44":  Enemy messengers reappear.
2'47":  Messenger defeated.
2'51":  Messenger defeated.
2'54":  Messenger defeated.
3'00":  Half the enemy messengers remain.
3'11":  Dong Zhuo appears.
3'14":  Enemy messengers reappear.
3'18":  Enemy messengers reappear.
3'21":  Enemy messengers reappear.
3'24":  Dong Zhuo flees.
3'36":  Dong Zhuo defeated.
3'42":  Messenger defeated.
3'45":  Messenger defeated.
4'00":  Zhen Ji appears.
4'04":  Enemy messengers reappear.
4'07":  Enemy messengers reappear.
4'17":  Zhen Ji flees.
4'20":  Messenger defeated.
4'23":  Zhen Ji defeated.
4'30":  Messenger defeated.
4'33":  Messenger defeated.
4'43":  Masamune Date defeated.
4'55":  Masamune Date flees.
4'58":  Unique item discovered.
5'01":  Masamune Date defeated.

My Method:

When the stage starts, you will get jumped by six enemy officers.  Defeat all 
six officers to get the ball rolling.  Messengers will start arriving and try 
to escape.  They appear in the southern part of the map and scatter for the 
three strongholds.  Defeat these messengers and don't allow the enemy 
reinforcements to appear.  If they do, it's no big deal.  Simply defeat the 
enemy reinforcements that arrive.  However, it's easier to deal with this 
stage without having the extra hassle of more enemy officers appearing.  
After the first set of messengers are defeated, a second set of messengers 
will appear.  Along with this second set, Dong Zhuo will appear in the 
eastern part of the map.  Defeat him and then get rid of the second set of 
messengers.  Now it's Zhen Ji's turn to appear with the third set of 
messengers.  Zhen Ji appears in the west, so defeat her and take care of the 
messengers.  Finally, the last set of messengers will appear with Masamune 
Date.  Now, if you are quick enough, you can defeat the messengers, then 
defeat Masamune Date, and then quickly grab your item before the stage ends.  
If you are not fast enough, you might want to let the last set of messengers 
get through and just focus on defeating Masamune Date.  The stage ends when 
there are no more officers on the map and Masamune Date is the last officer 
that will appear, provided that you don't let any of the messengers get 
through.  The item will appear in the northern part of the southern area of 
the map, so it's a quick ride to get your item, since the stage is so small.  
After you get your item, if there are no more enemy officers on the stage, 
the stage will end.  If there is still someone left, defeat that person and 
let the stage end.

Item:  Painted Scroll of Atsumori

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 1 - Battle of Jing Province

Requirements:  Before Cao Pi arrives, defeat six officers, defeat 500
   enemies, and form an alliance with the Huang Zhong army.  After Cao Pi
   arrives, Huang Zhong must order an advance on the enemy.  Also, Huang
   Zhong and Guan Ping must have at least 80% of their lifebars.

Location:  Inside the central fort of the central area.

Time Log:

1'28":  Mitsunari Ishida defeated.
1'40":  Suketada Ogawa defeated.
1'49":  Xu Rong defeated.
2'41":  Cao Ren defeated.
2'18":  Enemy ambushes Guan Ping.
2'51":  Boomslang defeated.
3'17":  Coachwhip defeated.
3'26":  Cheng Yu defeated.
3'38":  Alliance formed with Huang Zhong's Army.
3'42":  Guan Ping successfully rescued.
7'18":  Shigemasa Toda defeated.
7'33":  Cao Pi appears.
7'43":  Diamondback defeated.
8'03":  Guo Jia defeated.
8'14":  Naoyasu Akaza defeated.
8'24":  Man Chong defeated.
9'05":  Huang Zhong successfully rescued.
9'19":  The allied forces are advancing.
9'22":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts off, start killing some enemy soldiers that are in the 
southern area of the map.  When Cao Ren orders Mitsunari Ishida to attack 
Xiang Yang Castle, that is your cue to head directly for Mitsunari, who 
should be making his way towards the central area of Xiang Yang Castle.  
Reach Mitsunari before he can get to Huang Zhong and defeat both him and 
Suketada Ogawa.  Do not meet up with Huang Zhong just yet.  Leave him there 
for now.  Now, make your way back to the central area, defeating Xu Rong and 
Cao Ren in the process.  Also, defeat Boomslang in this area.  Do not touch 
Shigemasa Toda.  Save him for later, as he will be the trigger for Cao Pi to 
arrive.  Make your way over to Guan Ping, who should have gotten ambushed by 
now, so head over to him and rescue him by defeating Cheng Yu and Coachwhip.  
Stay by his side and defeat some enemies until he recognizes you as his 
savior and you get an alliance with Huang Zhong's Army.  Now, make your way 
back through the central area.  You should have over 200 kills by now.  If 
you don't this might be a struggle.  Make your way over to the western path 
and start killing enemies in this area.  Only kill the enemy soldiers.  Do 
not kill any enemy generals in this area.  This will keep both gates pumping 
out enemy soldiers for you to kill.  When you have 500 kills, make your way 
back to the central area, again without killing any enemy generals along the 
western path, and defeat Shigemasa Toda.  This will trigger Cao Pi arriving 
on the battlefield.  If you have been following this method, you should have 
the required 500 kills, 6 officer kills, and both Huang Zhong and Guan Ping 
should be healthy enough (considering the fact that you should have defeated 
the enemies around them to keep their lifebars in check).  Now, make your way 
over to the western path and start defeating the enemy officers that are 
here.  You will want to make your way towards the western gate of Xiang Yang 
Castle.  Enter Xiang Yang Castle and make your way over to Huang Zhong.  Meet 
up with him and he will begin his march towards Cao Pi.  This will cause your 
item to appear in the central fort.  Grab your item and then make your way 
south to Cao Pi and defeat him.

Mitsuhide Akechi
----------------

Item:  Poetry of Atago Hyakuin

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 4 - Battle of Tong Gate

Requirements:  Within 12 minutes and while Sakon Shima has 100% of his life,
   escort Sakon Shima to the escape point and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  Northwestern area of the map, near the western most of the two
   strongholds in this area.

Time Log:

0'07":  Sakon Shima is preparing to escape.
0'20":  The Guan Yu unit advances.
0'26":  Tomomichi Iwanari defeated.
0'38":  Wipe out the eney officers advancing upon Tong Gate.
0'42":  The forces at the front of Tong Gate are advancing upon Guan Yu.
0'45":  The forces at the flank of Tong Gate are advancing upon Zhang Fei.
1'06":  Guan Yu defeated.
1'12":  Wipe out the enemy officers advancing upon Tong Gate.
1'19":  The Zhang Fei unit advances.
1'36":  Li Jue defeated.
2'43":  Niu Fu defeated.
3'08":  Xu Rong defeated.
3'25":  Hua Xiong defeated.
4'08":  Zhang Liao defeated.
5'33":  Murashige Araki defeated.
6'17":  Zhang Fei defeated.
6'28":  The main force of the Orochi Army advances.
6'37":  Sakon Shima is on the move toward the escape point.
6'45":  Kotaro Fuma appears.
7'25":  Kotaro Fuma defeated.
9'02":  Alliance formed with Sakon Shima.
9'05":  Unique item discovered.
9'15":  Sakon Shima has reached the escape point.

My Method:

This is the only item that I did on Easy Mode because it may be required to 
do so and I didn't have time to test this theory again.  I tested it once 
before and defeated every enemy soldier along the eastern path (including in 
the waterway) and made sure Sakon Shima didn't lose a single bit of his life 
total, but still didn't get the item.  If you did get this item on Normal 
Mode, let me know and I will test this weapon again.  Either way, you need to 
get Sakon to the escape point without him losing a single bit of his life 
total.  If the enemy infiltrates your main camp while Sakon is on the move, 
he will make his way towards Dong Zhuo instead of escaping, which means you 
will need to make sure no enemies enter your main camp.  First, make your way 
east and defeat Tomomichi Iwanari and Guan Yu.  Now, clear out every single 
enemy soldier along the way to the escape point, which is in the northeastern 
area of the map.  First, make your way east and defeat Li Jue and shut down 
the enemy stronghold in this area.  Clear this area out of enemy soldiers.  
Remember, if you defeat the leader of a pack of enemy units, the rest will 
run away.  This will make things quicker to get rid of all those soldiers.  
Don't worry about getting your kills.  If you only use Mitsuhide for this 
stage, you will easily get over 300 kills.  Continue to make your way north 
and shut down the enemy stronghold in this area first, then defeat Niu Fu.  
Continue north to where Xu Rong and Hua Xiong are and defeat them both.  
Capture the northeastern enemy stronghold also.  You may have to defeat Zhang 
Liao if he gets in the way.  On your way back south, make sure the path is 
clear.  Now, when you reach the waterway, clear this area out of enemy 
officers.  There's always a chance that one of them might decide they want to 
pop out and say hi to Sakon.  When the entire eastern route is cleared off, 
make your way to the northern area of your main camp and defeat Murashige 
Araki and Zhang Fei.  You may want to clear this area out of enemy soldiers 
as well, just to ensure your forces at the northern gate of Tong Gate will 
survive, because if an enemy officer gets through your defenses here, Sakon 
will run off to defeat Dong Zhuo, which you do not want.  When Sakon starts 
to move out, follow him.  Kotaro Fuma will eventually show up in the 
northeastern area of the map.  Make sure none of the enemy soldiers or Kotaro 
hit Sakon.  When Sakon escapes, your item will appear in the northwestern 
area of the map.  Grab your item, defeat the rest of the enemy officers, and 
then defeat Dong Zhuo to end the stage.

Goemon Ishikawa
---------------

Item:  Ivory Incense Burner

Stage:  Shu Chapter 2 - Battle of Hasedo

Requirements:  Within 4 minutes, rescue Yue Ying.  Also, defeat Zhuge Liang
   and 300 enemies.  There is no time limit in defeating Zhuge Liang or
   obtaining 300 kills.

Location:  In the area past the third gate, inside the nook that is north of
   the western fort that is in this area.

Time Log:

0'13":  Yue Ying is being held prisoner.
0'16":  The Orochi Army appears.
0'35":  Yellowbelly defeated.
0'44":  Murashige Araki defeated.
0'54":  Rescue Yue Ying.
1'00":  Magoichi Saika is requesting aid from the Coalition Army.
1'04":  The gates of the first barrier open.
1'07":  Alliance formed with the Yue Ying Army.
1'24":  The Orochi Army has released rolling boulders.
1'28":  Coachwhip defeated.
1'46":  Rescue Yue Ying.
1'52":  Boomslang defeated.
2'12":  The gates of the second barrier open.
2'25":  Yue Ying has been successfully rescued.
2'38":  The gate to the central square has closed.
2'49":  Da Ji appears.
3'00":  An Orochi Army ambush appears.
3'07":  Boomslang defeated.
3'13":  Hiroie Kikkawa defeated.
3'22":  Defeat the enemy officers and break the enemy stranglehold.
3'31":  Orochi Army reinforcements appear.
3'46":  Mitsunari Ishida defeated.
3'51":  The gate to the central square opens.
3'55":  Satoie Gamo defeated.
4'07":  An Orochi Army ambush appears.
4'31":  Guan Suo defeated.
4'40":  Keelback defeated.
4'50":  Escort Yue Ying to the escape point.
4'59":  Orochi Army reinforcements appear.
5'05":  Yoshitsugu Otani defeated.
5'15":  Pang De appears.
5'18":  The gates of the fourth barrier open.
5'36":  Zhang Yan defeated.
5'45":  Copperhead defeated.
6'08":  Zhuge Liang appears.
6'11":  Unique item discovered.
6'15":  Zhuge Liang defeated.

My Method:

Yue Ying is being held prisoner just past the second gate.  You will need to 
release her in four minutes of the start of the battle.  As soon as the stage 
starts, make your way north and defeat Yellowbelly and Murashige Araki to get 
the first gate to open.  Now, continue north and defeat Coachwhip.  This will 
cause Boomslang to try to crush you with boulders.  Ignore the boulders and 
defeat Boomslang to stop the rock attack.  Make your way over to the second 
gate and defeat the Defense Captain to open up this gate.  Destroy the prison 
that Yue Ying is in to rescue her.  This is the easy part.  The hard part is 
completing the stage, since you do have to do it quickly, as both Yue Ying 
and Yoshihisa Shimazu like to die.  Da Ji will ambush you in the central area 
with a bunch of people.  This is where you can get a lot of kills, but you 
have to be quick about it, as Yue Ying will immediately advance north as soon 
as the gates open.  Defeat Mitsunari Ishida and the officers he brings to 
open up the gates to this area.  Follow Yue Ying north and help her out when 
she gets ambushed again.  This time, it's Guan Suo and Keelback.  Defeat both 
of these officers and then clear the area out of enemy soldiers to get Yue 
Ying moving again.  When you reach the fourth gate, defeat Yoshitsugu Otani 
to get the gate to open.  Continue to escort Yue Ying north, defeating enemy 
soldiers that are in her path.  When you reach Zhang Yan and Copperhead, 
defeat them both.  If Pang De catches up to you from behind, defeat him as 
well.  He will probably be the hardest officer to defeat on this map because 
of the hyper armor he has on because he is a Power character, but you should 
be high enough of a level to defeat him without too many problems.  When you 
cross the bridge in this area, Zhuge Liang will appear with Zhou Cang.  
Defeat Zhuge Liang to make your item appear.  Your item appears in the area 
between the third and fourth gates, in an area north of the western fort.  
Grab your item and make your way back to Yue Ying, who should be past the 
fifth gate by now.  Reach her to end the stage.

Kenshin Uesugi
--------------

Item:  Chalice of Bishamonten

Requirements:  Occupy all four cannon forts within 8 minutes and defeat 500
   enemies.  There is no time limit for the 500 kills.

4'24":  Boomslang defeated.
4'30":  The right central cannon fortress has been seized.
7'05":  Unique item discovered.


My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way west east towards the first cannon fort 
in the northeast.  Defeat Hognose to seize this cannon.  Now, leave the 
cannon fort through the west gate and head west to the second cannon fort in 
the northwest.  Capture this cannon fort by defeating Patchnose.  Now, head 
south to your next target.  Defeat Kazutada Nakamura and Shigemoto Makabe and 
then open up the gate to the left central cannon fort.  Defeat Mi Fang inside 
here to seize your third cannon fort.  The only one left is the one right 
beside it.  Make your way over to there and capture it by defeating 
Boomslang.  Now that all four cannons are in your possession, it's time to 
rack up some kills.  First, head over to where Da Ji is charging and defeat 
her and the army around her.  Then seize the southeastern fort with the help 
of Li Dian's unit.  If you still need kills, make your way over to Shingen 
Takeda and help him out and help him take over the southwestern garrison.  By 
now, you should at least have your 500 kills.  Defeat Lu Bu to get all the 
gates to Koshi Castle to open and then make your way inside.  Your item is 
inside the inner chamber of the castle, just past the inner gate.  Grab your 
item and defeat Orochi to end the stage.

4'17":  Hua Xiong defeated.
4'27":  Li Ru defeated.
4'43":  Lu Bu appears.
4'47":  Defeat Lu Bu.
4'50":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way north and defeat Niu Fu.  The first gate 
will open.  Make your way to the second gate and defeat Li Su.  You will get 
ambushed by soldiers, archers, and riflemen, but if you defeat Li Su, they 
will all retreat.  Spend some time here quickly defeating the retreating 
officers, as a retreating officer dies in one hit.  Make your way north, 
defeat Yellowbelly, then head over to the third gate and defeat Guo Si and Li 
Jue.  When the third gate opens, you will find Diao Chan.  She's getting 
ganged up on by Dong Min, Fan Chou, and Sidewinder.  Teach those three 
officers some lessons in chivalry and defeat all of them.  This will rescue 
Diao Chan and she will form an alliance with you.  By now, Dong Zhuo should 
be charging, so head over to big ugly and fight him off.  He will be guarded 
by two of his lackies, but simply run them through and then defeat Dong Zhuo.  
When Dong Zhuo goes down, Lu Bu will appear, along with your item.  Make your 
way south, grab your item, and then fight off Lu Bu to complete the stage.

        Zhuo.

7'20":  Dong Zhuo has decided to leave Orochi's service.
7'28":  Defeat Dong Zhuo.
7'37":  Guo Si defeated.
7'44":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way towards the central area of the map.  
Defeat Hu Che Er and Li Su and then wait at the northern stronghold of the 
central area for the Supply Captain to arrive.  Defeat the Supply Captain 
immediately.  Now, you can either wait in this area for the next Supply 
Captain to arrive, which arrives at the western stronghold of the central 
area.  However, I went towards the northeastern area of the map and defeated 
the three enemy officers that were in the area.  Either way, make sure you 
are at the stronghold that is indicated in the central area.  Zhang Ji will 
arrive with the second Supply Captain, so make sure you don't get distracted 
by the officer.  Defeat both the Supply Captain and Zhang Ji.  The next 
Supply Captain will appear at the northern stronghold in the central area.  I 
defeated the enemies in the southern area of the map while waiting for the 
next Supply Captain to arrive.  When they do, Lu Bu will appear with them.  
First, defeat the Supply Captain so that he doesn't try to escape while Lu Bu 
is distracting you and then, defeat Lu Bu quickly, as you only have 2 minutes 
to defeat him after he arrives.  If you have defeated Lu Bu fast enough, the 
item will appear in this area.  After you grab your item, make your way 
towards the southeastern area of the map and defeat Dong Zhuo to end the 
stage.

   ambush before Sima Yi orders his officers to attack Sun Ce, defeat Zhang
   He within 2 minutes of his arrival, and reach Da Qiao before Sun Ce.
   Also, defeat 100 enemies before the Da Qiao guards appear.

   initially appear.

Time Log:

4'09":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, immediately make your way towards Da Qiao.  You want 
to reach the outer western gate of Da Qiao's camp before Sun Ce does.  If you 
don't, Sima Yi will order his officers to attack Sun Ce before you can 
trigger Zhang He's ambush.  When you reach the gate, Zhang He will appear.  
Defeat Zhang He quickly, along with all the enemy officers and enemy soldiers 
that are in this area.  This will help get your kill count up quickly.  When 
the gates open, make your way over to Da Qiao.  When Da Qiao has acknowledged 
you getting there before Sun Ce, make your way over to the enemy forces that 
are advancing and get the rest of the kills that you need.  When you have 
100, your item will appear after the Da Qiao guards do.  Your item will 
appear in the northeastern garrison, where the Da Qiao guards show up.  After 
you grab your item, defeat the enemy forces that attempt to attack your main 
camp, then enter the northern garrison and defeat Sima Yi and Dong Zhuo to 
end the stage.

2'39":  Jinhuan Sanjie has been successfully rescued.
2'42":  Jinhuan Sanjie has temporarily retreated to recuperate.
2'46":  Shortcut accessed.
2'55":  An Orochi Army ambush appears.
3'01":  Yang Huai defeated.
3'12":  Meng Huo's stance toward the Coalition Army softens.
3'28":  Wang Lang defeated.
3'34":  Dong Tu Na has been successfully rescued.
3'41":  Dong Tu Na has temporarily retreated to recuperate.
3'49":  Meng Huo's stance toward the Coalition Army softens.
3'58":  Orochi Army reinforcements arrive.
4'16":  Reinforcements from the Meng Huo Army arrive.
4'28":  Meng Huo has vowed to fight with the Coalition Army.
4'31":  The Meng Huo Army advances.
5'52":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way east towards Zhu Rong.  She is fighting 
off Tatsuoki Saito.  Defeat him to rescue Zhu Rong.  This will open up the 
gate that will lead you to Meng Huo.  He will be fighting Zang Ba.  Defeat 
Zang Ba to help out Meng Huo.  Meng Huo doesn't like having your help, so you 
will need to convince him to accept it by rescuing his people.  The first one 
you should go rescue is Ahui Nan.  He is fighting off Naoyasu Akaza.  On your 
way there, defeat Yan Baihu.  When you reach Naoyasu Akaza, defeat him to 
rescue Ahui Nan.  Once Ahui Nan is rescued, make your way east towards the 
eastern path and take it north to where Jinhuan Sanjie is.  He is fighting 
off Mototsuna Kutsuki.  Defeat him to rescue Jinhuan Sanjie.  Use the 
shortcut that is in this area to lead you back to Meng Huo's area.  Yang Huai 
should be here, trying to get the jump on Meng Huo.  Defeat Yang Huai and 
then take the northern path east to where Dong Tu Na is.  He is fighting off 
Wang Lang.  Defeat him to rescue the final Nan Zhong officer.  Meng Huo will 
finally agree to join your cause and fight with you to get rid of Sima Yi and 
the Orochi Army.  Now, it's time to get your 300 kills.  The best place to 
get kills is in the western area where the Orochi Army ambush happened.  
Also, the area south of this area is another good spot to get kills.  If you 
have rescued the Nan Zhong Army within 4 minutes of the battle, you should 
have a good 4 minutes to collect whatever kills you need, which is more than 
enough time to complete this.  When you get your 300 kills, the item will 
appear in the western area of the map, where Zhang Liao appears as 
reinforcements for the enemy.  Grab your item and then make your way towards 
the southeastern corner of the map, defeating enemies like Xu Huang along the 
way.  When you reach Sima Yi, defeat him to complete the stage.

3'51":  The right central cannon fortress has begun firing.
3'55":  The gates to the right central cannon fortress have opened.
4'10":  The Li Dian unit arrives.
4'13":  The Li Dian unit is advancing toward the southwestern garrison.
4'19":  Boomslang defeated.
5'05":  Zhang Ji defeated.
5'14":  Copperhead defeated.
5'20":  The right central cannon fortress has been seized.
6'06":  The southwestern garrison has been seized.
6'20":  Lu Bu advances
6'52":  Bushmaster and Urutu are mobilizing to defend Koshi Castle.
6'56":  All gates of the southeastern garrison have opened.
7'14":  The Zhou Yu unit arrives.
7'24":  The Zhou Yu unit is advancing toward the southeastern garrison.
7'53":  Lu Bu defeated.
8'16":  All gates of Koshi Castle have opened.
8'20":  The Coalition Army is advancing toward the Orochi Army.
8'23":  The Wu Army is advancing toward the Orochi Army.
9'08":  Da Ji defeated.
9'17":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

To draw out Lu Bu, normally you need to defeat Da Ji.  However, you cannot 
defeat Da Ji before Lu Bu, so you will have to take a different route 
instead.  First, start by taking all four cannon forts.  The first one you 
should take is the northeastern cannon fort.  Defeat Hognose here to take the 
fort.  Now, make your way all the way west using the northern route and take 
the next cannon fort.  Patchnose is here, so defeat him to seize the cannon 
fort.  Now, head south to the next cannon fort.  Outside here should be 
Kazutada Nakamura and Shigemoto Makabe.  Defeat them both and then defeat the 
Defense Captain standing outside the western cannon fort.  Defeat Mi Fang 
inside the cannon fort to take your third cannon.  Da Ji should charge out 
now, but ignore her for now.  You need to defeat her after Lu Bu.  Instead, 
focus on the fourth cannon fort.  Boomslang is in here, so defeat him to 
capture the last cannon fort and get rid of all the nuisances.  Now, head 
south to where Zhang Ji and Copperhead are at and defeat them both.  Help the 
Wu forces capture the southwestern garrison.  This will lure Lu Bu out.  Make 
your way towards Lu Bu, who should still be inside the outer parts of Koshi 
Castle.  Take the southern gate of Koshi Castle to get to Lu Bu and defeat 
him quickly.  Use everything in your bag of tricks to get rid of him as fast 
as possible.  When Lu Bu goes down, immediately get on your horse (or steal 
his) and get to Da Ji as quickly as possible.  Da Ji should be along the 
western route fighting Kenshin Uesugi.  She will not be as hard to beat as Lu 
Bu was.  If you defeat Da Ji within 2 minutes of Lu Bu and you have your 500 
kills and all officers of Wu are still alive (the yellow units), then you 
will obtain your item.  If you don't have your kills yet, there should be 
some enemy soldiers and officers still left on the battlefield to beat down.  
Your item will appear in the northwestern fort, the one that is not the 
cannon fort.  It is the one the Orochi Army abandoned in order to lure you 
inside but you never fell for the trap because you are smarter than that.  
Grab your item and then finish off Orochi to end the stage.

Masamune Date
-------------

Item:  Dragon's Pipe

Stage:  Shu Chapter 6 - Battle of Hu Lao Gate

Requirements:  Within 10 minutes, defeat Cao Ren, Zang Ba, Diao Chan
   before she charges, Sima Zhao, and 100 enemies.

Location:  At the ruined castle at the northwestern area of the map near the
   northern wall of the ruined castle.

Time Log:

0'07":  Hurry to rescue Sun Ce.
0'17":  The Wu Lan and Lei Tong units are moving to rescue Sun Ce.
0'21":  The Wang Ping unit is moving to lure out the Orochi Army.
0'24":  The eastern bypath gate has opened.
0'40":  Xiahou Ba has been successfully lured out.
1'01":  Sun Ce has been successfully rescued.
1'10":  Zang Ba defeated.
1'21":  Cao Ren is fighting with fierce determination.
1'25":  Cao Ren defeated.
1'38":  Alliance formed with the Sun Ce Army.
1'55":  The Orochi Army has temporarily halted their advance.
2'04":  Help Sun Ce defeat Sima Yi.
2'30":  The Coalition Army is advancing toward the planned fire attack
        location.
2'33":  Eliminate all enemies from the planned fire attack location.
2'47":  Diao Chan defeated.
2'58":  Zhu Ran is advancing toward the planned fire attack location.
3'22":  The Xin Pi unit arrives.
3'33":  Unique item discovered.
3'40":  Sima Zhao defeated.

My Method:

You have ten minutes to do everything, but you really only need four if you 
are fast enough.  Make your way north and defeat the Defense Captain to open 
up the gate on the eastern path.  Continue north to where Sun Ce is and 
defeat Zang Ba and Cao Ren quickly.  Now, from this area, head west and then 
south.  When you reach the intersection, continue east and south to the 
central area.  Your next target should be Diao Chan.  She is in the 
southeastern area of the map.  You want to get to her and defeat her before 
she charges out.  If you do so, the fire attack won't have to succeed and 
that's one less thing to worry about.  Otherwise, you will need to protect 
the fire attack and make it successful.  When Diao Chan goes down, make your 
way north to where Sima Zhao is.  Xin Pi will jump you in this area, but 
ignore him and simply defeat Sima Zhao.  If you have done everything with 
Masamune Date, you should have your 100 kills by now, which means your item 
will appear.  It appears inside the northwestern castle, but you shouldn't 
head over there just yet.  Instead, to make things better for you, succeed in 
the fire attack by getting rid of all the people in the center of the map, 
including Kotaro Fuma, and then charge with your entire army towards the 
northwestern castle.  Your item is inside the northwestern nook, right below 
the northern wall you can walk on if you take the little passageway just east 
of the northwestern castle.  Grab your item and finish off Sima Yi to 
complete the stage.

6'46":  The supply troops have safely made it inside the castle.
7'00":  The Orochi Army advances.
7'06":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, defeat Bokuzen Ujiie quickly to prevent him from 
charging your main camp.  Now, make your way over to the western storehouse.  
Defeat Mitsuharu Fuwa and then make your way to the western storehouse.  
There, defeat the Defense Captain to open up the storehouse and then defeat 
Katsumasa Shibata inside.  A Supply Captain will appear.  Defeat all enemy 
soldiers around the Supply Captain.  Kotaro Fuma should arrive at this point 
and send ninja troops over to try to stop your Supply Captain, but simply run 
them through quickly and then make your way south to the next storehouse.  
Defeat the Defense Captain in front of this storehouse and make your way 
inside.  Huang Zhong is here, meaning this battle will be a little bit 
tougher than the last one.  Only a little bit though.  Defeat Huang Zhong and 
make the second Supply Captain appear.  Just like the last one, defeat the 
enemy soldiers that are in this area, including Nobuharu Tsuda, and then let 
them go on their own.  The final storehouse is along the western side of the 
map.  Along the way to the last storehouse, defeat Tsuneoki Ikeda to get rid 
of problems in the future.  Break into the storehouse and defeat Yoshiaki 
Kato to get the final Supply Captain on the map.  Clear the way for this 
Supply Captain and get him to the castle.  When all three Supply Captains 
reach the castle, your item will appear at the southwestern corner of the 
map.  Grab your item and then finish off Mitsuhide Akechi to end the stage.

Hanzo Hattori
-------------

Item:  Scroll of Iga Ninjutsu

Stage:  Wu Chapter 6 - Battle of He Fei

Requirements:  Defeat Keiji Maeda, Zhen Ji, Cao Zhang, and Hiroie Kikkawa
   inside the northwestern castle and then defeat Cao Ren, Cao Zhen, Hao
   Zhao, Yu Jin, Gao Shun, the two Defense Captains on the bridge, Zhu Huan,
   Ding Feng, Fu Shi Ren, Nagayuki Miyoshi.  Also, defeat Zhou Tai after
   the bridge collapse cut scene and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  Along the eastern path, west of the eastern stronghold.

Time Log:

0'16":  The enemy vanguard is advancing.
0'24":  Lure the enemy vanguard inside He Fei Castle.
1'19":  Cao Zhang defeated.
1'28":  Keiji Maeda defeated.
1'38":  Zhen Ji defeated.
1'48":  Hiroie Kikkawa defeated.
1'58":  Allied ambush troops appear.
2'01":  Several enemy officers have been trapped.  Defeat them.
2'51":  The enemy's central unit advances.

3'26":  Cao Ren defeated.
3'39":  Hao Zhao defeated.
3'52":  The enemy's central unit advances.
3'58":  Cao Zhen defeated.
4'08":  Yu Jin defeated.
4'52":  Gao Shun defeated.
4'58":  The enemy's central unit advances.
5'07":  The enemy defense captain has been defeated.  Withdraw from the
        bridge at once.
5'24":  The bridge has been successfully destroyed.
5'34":  The enemy's northern unit is advancing.
5'41":  The enemy's southern unit is advancing.
5'53":  Zhu Huan defeated.
6'07":  Ding Feng defeated.
6'17":  Zhou Tai defeated.
6'23":  Zhou Tai is retreating.
6'42":  Fu Shi Ren defeated.
6'51":  Nagayuki Miyoshi defeated.
8'31":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

There is a bunch of enemy officers you will need to defeat and some of them 
can only be defeated during certain times.  First, lure Keiji Maeda, Zhen Ji, 
Cao Zhang, and Hiroie Kikkawa into the northwestern castle and then defeat 
them there.  You cannot defeat them while they are outside the castle.  It 
doesn't matter if you defeat them before or after the ambush troops arrive.  
In fact, it's easier if you started defeating them before the ambush happens, 
as sometimes the ambush troops can prevent Hiroie Kikkawa from entering the 
castle.  Defeat all four enemy officers and then make your way out towards 
Cao Ren.  Cao Ren will get his forces to begin charging.  There are five 
total, including Cao Ren.  Some of them will just ignore you and keep 
running, so they can be very hard to track down.  Defeat Cao Ren, Hao Zhao, 
Cao Zhen, Yu Jin, and Gao Shun.  When they are defeated, make your way over 
to the Defense Captains that are on the bridge and defeat them both.  Now, 
make your way back north off of the bridges to watch them collapse.  Sun Quan 
will order his forces in the south and the east to charge your main camp.  
Make your way north towards the eastern forces and defeat Zhu Huan and Ding 
Feng.  Zhou Tai will be next, which will trigger a boring cut scene of the 
two of them just staring at each other.  Defeat Zhou Tai and then finish off 
Fu Shi Ren and Nagayuki Miyoshi to finish off all the required kills for your 
weapons.  Now, it's simply a matter of getting your 300 kills.  There's a 
group of enemy soldiers in the southeast and the southwest for you to kill 
off.  You should have close to 200 to 250 by now, so getting the last 50 to 
100 kills should be easy.  When you achieve your 300 kills, the item will 
appear along the eastern path.  Grab your item, make your way south, and 
defeat Sun Quan to end the stage.

Ranmaru Mori
------------

Item:  Nobunaga's Belt

Stage:  Wu Chapter 2 - Battle of Chang Ban

Requirements:  Within 7 minutes, defeat every officer other than Lu Xun, Ling
   Tong and Yorichika Shichiri after they spring their ambush, the Lead
   Engineers Sakon Shima sends out, Sakon Shima after you are told to do
   defeat him, Gan Ning after he charges out but before he reaches the ambush
   point, and 300 enemies.

Location:  Northwestern corner of the map.

Time Log:

0'15":  Nobuchika Chosokabe defeated.
0'40":  Da Ji retreated.
0'50":  Kiyohide Nakagawa defeated.
1'01":  Sakon Shima appears.
1'30":  Shigeyasu Suzuki defeated.
1'40":  Naoshige Nabeshima defeated.
2'01":  Morichika Chosokabe defeated.
2'27":  Resistance Army ambush troops appear.
2'33":  The Ling Tong unit advances upon the Orochi Army.
2'42":  A mobile unit arrives.
2'49":  The mobile unit advances.
2'59":  Yorichika Shichiri defeated.
3'09":  Ling Tong defeated.
3'19":  Engineers appear.
3'34":  A defensive unit arrives.
3'58":  Engineers appear.
4'10":  Defeat Sakon Shima and prevent his fire attack.
4'22":  Sakon Shima defeated.
4'28":  The engineers have been successfully stopped.
4'40":  Sakon Shima retreats.
4'53":  The enemy's second wave advances.
5'05":  Gan Ning is on the move toward the dock.
5'13":  Stop Gan Ning's sneak attack.
5'23":  Gan Ning defeated.
5'33":  Zhu Ran defeated.
6'09":  Ling Cao defeated.
6'22":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

First, defeat Nobuchika Chosokabe and Kiyohide Nakagawa.  Then, make your way 
east and the north along the central diagonal path.  Defeat Shigeyasu Suzuki 
and Naoshige Nabeshima in this area.  Now, head east to where Morichika 
Chosokabe is and defeat him as well.  Now, Ling Tong will eventually lead an 
ambush at the middle diagonal path, so make your way back over to there.  
Defeat Ling Tong and Yorichika Shichiri to stop the ambush party.  Lu Xun's 
next big idea is a fire attack.  He will order Engineers to march along the 
eastern path to your main camp and set fire to your main camp.  Defeat the 
first Lead Engineer that appears.  Sakon Shima will send out a second Lead 
Engineer.  Defeat this engineer and wait for Zhou Yu to order you to defeat 
Sakon Shima.  Defeat him after you are told to do so.  Now, Lu Xun is 
starting to get desperate and will order Gan Ning to lead an ambush at your 
main camp.  He will need to make it to the dock before he can do so.  Stop 
Gan Ning from making it to the dock to lead his sneak attack.  By now, you 
should have 200 kills by this point in time.  Defeat Zhu Ran next, who should 
be in this area.  Use this area to get up to around 250 kills and then make 
your way towards the enemy main camp.  You will need to defeat Ling Cao and 
50 more enemies up here to get your 300 kills.  By now, you should have about 
2 minutes to do all of this, so be quick about it.  When you have done this, 
your item will appear in the northwestern corner of the map.  Grab your item 
and defeat Lu Xun to complete the stage.

Hideyoshi Toyotomi
------------------

Item:  Nobunaga's Sandals

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 8-X - Battle of Bai Di Castle

Requirements:  Within 7 minutes, take over Bai Di Castle and defeat 100
   enemies.

Location:  The exit point of the Stone Sentinel Maze.

Time Log:

0'07":  Lay siege to Bai Di Castle.
0'18":  The No Army advances.
0'24":  Sidewinder defeated.
0'38":  Orochi Army reinforcements are approaching.
0'41":  Hurry and lay siege to Bai Di Castle before the reinforcements
        arrive.
0'58":  The Stone Sentinel Maze has been entered.
1'28":  Enemy phantom soldiers appear.
1'44":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
1'51":  Enemy forces have triggered rolling boulders.
1'58":  The enemy phantom soldiers have been eliminated.
2'01":  The gates to the Stone Sentinel Maze open.
3'01":  Lu Xiang defeated.
3'07":  The northern gates of Bai Di Castle open.
3'22":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
3'43":  Unique item discovered.
3'46":  Boomslang defeated.
3'56":  Bai Di Castle has been captured.

My Method:

To take over Bai Di Castle, you simply must reach the castle, defeat all the 
enemy officers inside the castle, and lead your allied troops inside the 
castle.  You start off at the northwestern corner of the map.  Make your way 
east and defeat Sidewinder.  Make your way into the Stone Sentinel Maze.  You 
will want to find the golden statue that is in the center of the maze.  You 
will not have your mini map to help guide you, but if you head straight until 
you hit the dead end, then turn left, then keep going straight and only 
turning right when you hit dead ends, you will eventually reach the center.  
When you destroy the golden statue, phantom soldiers will appear.  You will 
need to make your way back out the way you came in to the entrance of the 
maze and defeat the Sorcerer that is here.  This opens up all the doors to 
the maze, making it easy to make your way through and find your way out.  
Make your way to the north gate of Bai Di Castle and defeat Lu Xiang to open 
up the north gate.  Be careful of the Arbalest that is in the area.  Once 
inside the castle, defeat Boomslang to take over Bai Di Castle.  This will 
make your item appear, provided that you have defeated 100 enemies.  If you 
don't have 100 kills yet, there are many enemies in this area for you to 
knock off.  Your item will appear at the exit of the Stone Sentinel Maze.  
Make your way back north, grab your item, and then focus on finishing the 
stage, which won't be easy.  You should focus right now on defending the 
castle from all enemy officers who try to take it back.  By the time you are 
done dealing with the enemy officers attacking Bai Di Castle, Lu Bu should 
arrive to try to take the castle back from you.  He will approach the castle 
from the southwest, so make your way over to the southern gate and clear out 
the Arbalests that are down here.  Then, face off with Lu Bu.  As usual, Lu 
Bu is powerful, so make sure you use everything you have when fighting him.  
Remember, Hideyoshi, as a technique character, has the ability to counter 
attacks.  After Lu Bu goes down, Orochi will make his arrival in the 
southwestern corner of the map.  Help out your allies and lead a massive 
attack force on the southwest to completely rout Orochi.

Yoshimoto Imagawa
-----------------

Item:  Pillow Book

Stage:  Wei Chapter 4 - Battle of Yi Ling

Requirements:  Defeat the Lead Engineer before the bridge is built, defeat
   Pang Tong before he makes his way into the Stone Sentinel Maze, and defeat
   150 enemies.

Location:  Along the western path, near the stronghold that is inside the
   nook along the western path.

Time Log:

0'07":  The Orochi Army advances south.
0'13":  The Sun Shang Xiang Army advances west.
0'29":  Xiahou Wei defeated.
0'48":  The Resistance Army advances.
1'27":  Xiahou Dun defeated.
1'43":  Xiahou Dun has withdrawn from the battlefield.
2'04":  Engineers appear.
2'07":  The engineers are on the move.
2'14":  Defeat the engineer unit to thwart the enemy plan.
2'28":  Pang Tong defeated.
2'34":  The Resistance Army's plan has been thwarted.
2'54":  The Resistance Army is marching upon the allied main camp.
3'09":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

First, make your way south to where Xiahou Wei is and defeat him.  Xiahou Dun 
will begin to make his advance, so defeat him when he reaches you.  Now, 
quickly make your way towards the central area of the map.  Pang Tong will 
order his engineers to build a bridge to your main camp.  You must defeat the 
Lead Engineer before he can reach the bridge building site.  The quicker you 
can do this, the more time you will have to defeat Pang Tong, as he will 
immediately begin moving into the Stone Sentinel Maze when you foil his 
plans.  He moves quickly for a hunched over guy and Yoshimoto Imagawa doesn't 
exactly have the quickest move set.  You know you will have failed to defeat 
Pang Tong in time if he launches an ambush at you inside the Stone Sentinel 
Maze.  Either way, when Pang Tong is defeated, simply collect your 150 kills 
to get your item to appear.  It appears along the western route, so fight 
your way over to there and grab your item.  Now, it's simply a matter of 
defeat Xiahou Yuan and then defeating the Xiahou brothers again to complete 
the stage.

Tadakatsu Honda
---------------

Item:  Deerhorn Helmet

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 7 - Battle of Wu Zhang Plains

Requirements:  Defeat all enemy officers and trigger the cut scene where
   Kenshin and Shingen ride into the enemy main camp together.

Location:  Inside the enemy main camp east of Da Ji's initial position.

Time Log:

0'19":  Sidewinder defeated.
0'29":  Lancehead defeated.
0'56":  Chikanori Suibara defeated.
1'12":  Dokyu Yamagami defeated.
1'21":  Michiyasu Kurushima defeated
1'46":  Yoshimitsu Murakami defeated.
2'02":  Kenshin Uesugi appears as reinforcements.
2'18":  Mitsuyasu Shimura defeated.
2'27":  Kojuro Katakura defeated.
2'37":  Shigezane Date defeated.
2'47":  Shingen Takeda appears as reinforcements.
2'54":  Nobuyasu Goto defeated.
3'19":  Shigenaga Honjo defeated.
3'32":  Keiji Maeda defeated.
4'23":  Yan Baihu defeated.
5'50":  Mi Fang defeated.
5'16":  Chen Lan defeated.
6'04":  Enemy forces have begun using boulder attacks.
6'56":  Kazuhide Nakamura defeated.
7'21":  Masamune Date defeated.
7'44":  Enemy reinforcements arrive.
7'55":  Yang Huai defeated.
8'34":  Lei Bo defeated.
8'47":  Zang Ba defeated.
8'57":  Yan Pu defeated.
9'17":  Tomomichi Iwanari defeated.
9'53":  Zhong Hui defeated.
10'17":  Cao Xing defeated.
10'36":  Zhang Ji defeated.
11'08":  Nagayuki Miyoshi defeated.
11'18":  Patchnose defeated.
12'57":  Copperhead defeated.
13'21":  Coachwhip defeated.
13'27":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Make your way to the central area and quickly defeat Sidewinder and 
Lancehead.  You don't have to prevent the enemy from entering your area, but 
it's best if you don't allow them in anyways.  The first enemy wave will come 
from the eastern side, so defeat the four enemy officers that are in this 
area quickly.  You can defeat all four and use the message spam from their 
defeats to delay the charge from the western side.  When the eastern side is 
cleared out, make your way over to the western side and do the same thing.  
Kenshin Uesugi should show up while you're dealing with the forces from the 
west.  When all four enemy officers are defeated from the western side, make 
your way south towards the central fortress.  Shingen Takeda will appear, 
providing you with more reinforcements.  Masamune Date will realize that 
you're running through his weaker generals and will call for the big guns in 
the name of Maeda Keiji.  Defeat him before he can move very far and also 
defeat the general that is with him, Shigenaga Honjo.  Do not defeat Masamune 
yet.  Instead, let him retreat towards the area behind the central fort.  
Now, you will have to deal with the enemies that are on the western and 
eastern paths.  The first enemy general that will charge is Yan Baihu.  If 
you do not defeat him quickly, he will run through the Uesugi army.  Head 
directly for the eastern path and defeat him first.  While you are fighting 
him, Chen Lan will attempt to do the same thing, only on the western side of 
things.  When they are both defeated, make your way south and pick off Mi 
Fang.  Now, cross the river and make your way towards Masamune, but don't go 
directly to him.  Masamune will call for engineers to drop boulders on your 
army.  The first engineer you should deal with is Kazuhide Nakamura.  He is 
along the western path, so make your way over to him and defeat him.  Jump 
down from the cliff and make your way over to Masamune.  Finally, you get to 
get rid of him.

When Masamune is defeated, continue to head east towards the second engineer.  
Da Ji will make some comment about men that will make no sense and further 
prove that she is not very smart.  However, her comments will call forth 
reinforcements to arrive.  Make your way towards Tomomichi Iwanari by way of 
the southwestern route.  Along the way, defeat Yang Huai, Zang Ba, Yan Pu, 
and if you have time, Nagayuki Miyoshi.  You don't want to spend too much 
time here because if you do, either Tomomichi will die or Zhong Hui, who has 
started to march on your main camp, will get too far ahead.  However, you do 
want to make sure Zang Ba dies because if he's left alone, he will try to 
pull the same trick that Zhong Hui does.  Make your way over to Tomomichi and 
defeat him.  Now that the boulders have finally stopped, jump off of this 
cliff and make your way back over to the western side.  Zhong Hui should be 
trying to sneak past your soldiers and get a surprise attack off on your main 
camp.  Defeat Zhong Hui and then head back south towards Cao Xing and Zhang 
Ji.  When they area defeated, make your way back east, again, and defeat 
Nagayuki Miyoshi (if he's still alive) and Patchnose.  When they are 
defeated, simply clear out a path for Kenshin and Shingen to meet.  
Sometimes, Kenshin will use the southern route to get to Shingen and 
sometimes he will simply head west to meet up with him.  Either way, this is 
a good time to get those two to meet for the cut scene to happen.  When it 
does, make your way into the enemy main camp and defeat Copperhead and 
Coachwhip.  This will make the unique item appear.  Grab it and defeat Da Ji 
to complete the stage.

14'22":  Dokyu Yamagami defeated by Zhu Zhi.
14'32":  Zhou Tai has made it to where Keiji Maeda is.
14'35":  Hanzo Hattori has made it to where Keiji Maeda is.
14'38":  Unique item discovered.
14'51":  All gates of the enemy main camp open.

My Method:

You need to get Keiji surrounded before you approach Keiji's main camp.  The 
easiest way to do this is to leave Dokyu Yamagami alive and let your allied 
reinforcements defeat him.  Also, while you need to summon all reinforcement 
officers, you only need to have the first five of them surround Keiji.  Those  
reinforcement officers are Zhu Zhi, Ieyasu Tokugawa, Zhou Tai, Naomasa Ii, 
and Hanzo Hattori.  Lu Meng also needs to surround Keiji, but he should come 
along with the rest of them.  Once again, Yoshimoto Imagawa doesn't count.  
First, defeat Yang Huai and Kagetsugu Amakasu to protect the main camp from 
the east.  Then, return to your main camp and sound the drums.  This will 
bring out Zhu Zhi, the first of your allied reinforcements.  Make your way 
south and defeat Takeyoshi Murakami and Yoshimitsu Murakami and then head 
back north to your main camp.  Defeat the enemy soldiers around your main 
camp and wait for Lu Meng to order you to sound the drums again.  Ieyasu 
Tokugawa will appear this time.  Make your way east towards the northeastern 
fort and defeat Mitsuyasu Shimura.  Keiji Maeda will call for reinforcements 
of his own in one of the northern garrisons.  They are in the form of 
Mitsuuji Ujiie and Motoyoshi Murakami.  Defeat them both and then make your 
way back to your main camp.  When Lu Meng calls for it, beat the drums again 
to get Zhou Tai to arrive.  Make your way south to where Ieyasu Tokugawa is 
and defeat Yan Pu and Cao Xing.  Again, Keiji Maeda will call forth enemy 
reinforcements, this time in the southern area of the map.  Defeat Mitsunaga 
Irobe and Zhang Ji to stop the enemy's intensified attack.  Now, you should 
have to call for another reinforcement officers, so make your way back to 
your main camp and bang the drums again.  This time, Naomasa Ii will appear 
in the southwester corner of the map.

Make your way to the southeastern corner of the map and take out Toshitsune 
Maeda.  This is simply to kill time (and enemy officers).  It's about time 
for Keiji Maeda to call for another one of his grand intensified attacks.  
This time it is at the central area of the map.  It is in the form of Yan 
Baihu and Chikanori Suibara.  Defeat them both to beat back this 
reinforcement attack.  You should know the deal by now.  Beat back 
intensified attack, beat on drums.  Back at your allied main camp, which you 
should be sick of by now, call for the Iga Ninja Hanzo Hattori.  Head back to 
the southeastern corner of the map.  It's Keiji time, which means intensified 
attack in the southeast.  Knock off Mi Fang and Michiyasu Kurushima.  This 
will allow Lu Meng, Ieyasu Tokugawa, and Naomasa Ii to arrive at the southern 
gate.  Make your way back north to your main camp, call for Yoshimoto 
Imagawa, and wait for Dokyu Yamagami to be defeated.  He should be in the 
middle of getting beat down by Zhu Zhi, Zhou Tai, and Hanzo Hattori.  When 
Dokyu goes down, your three officers in the north will have arrived at 
Keiji's position.  This will cause your item to appear in the southwestern 
corner of the map, which of course, is par for the course.  I mean, after 
all, you've already had to run all the way across the stage five times, 
what's more time going to do?  Grab your item and take your frustrations out 
on Keiji to end the stage.

Stage:  Ww Chapter 1 - Battle of Mt. Ding Jun

Requirements:  Within 10 minutes, defeat Li Yan, Liu Feng, Wang Ping, Hideaki
   Tokuyama, Zhang Yi, Cheng Yin and 200 enemies.  Also, get the cut scene
   involving Sun Ce and Ranmaru Mori.  You cannot have Sun Ce in your party.

Location:  Along the eastern path that leads up to the northeastern area of
   the map.

Time Log:

0'09":  The Orochi Army advances.
0'38":  Zhang Bao defeated.
0'59":  Yang Qiu defeated.
1'26":  Jiang Wei defeated.
2'37":  Han Sui defeated.

5'53":  Yue Ying defeated.
6'18":  Yoshinari Mori defeated.
6'45":  Ma Dai defeated.
7'16":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

When the stage starts, make your way towards the central area of the map and 
defeat Zhang Bao.  I normally go north and clear this area out first.  Yang 
Qiu and Jiang Wei are there.  Defeat them and make your way towards the 
central area of the map.  Defeat Han Sui and then clear a path for Sun Ce to 
make his way towards the central area.  If the ambush has already happened, 
make your way north and defeat Liu Feng and Wang Ping.  Now, head for the 
central area and defeat Hideaki Tokuyama and Li Yan.  Finally, make your way 
over to where Xu Huang is and defeat Cheng Yin and Zhang Yi.  Make your way 
up the eastern path and defeat Tadamasa Mori, Yue Ying, and Yoshinari Mori.  
Make your way over to Sun Ce and clear the path out for him to reach Ranmaru 
Mori.  When he does, you will get a cut scene.  After the cut scene, your 
item will appear, provided you have your 200 kills.  The item appears along 
the eastern path that leads up to the northeastern area of the map.  Grab 
your item and defeat Ranmaru and Ma Chao to end the stage.


----------------
Mitsunari Ishida
----------------

Item:  The Three Teacups

Stage:  Wei Chapter 3 - Battle of Xia Kou

Requirements:  Defeat Ranmaru Mori within 2 minutes of his appearance and
   defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  The northern part of the central area of the map, along the
   central path that leads to the northern fort in Dynasty Warriors 5, but is
   blocked off in this game.

Time Log:

0'14":  Prevent Sun Ce from escaping.
0'18":  The Orochi Army advances.
0'28":  The gates of the enemy defense base close.
0'45":  Liu Han defeated.
0'54":  Nobumasa Okudaira defeated.
1'42":  Naomasa Ii defeated.
2'46":  Tadayo Okubo defeated.
3'06":  The gates of the enemy defense base open.
3'16":  Cheng Pu defeated.
3'25":  Nobuyasu Matsudaira defeated.
3'35":  Enemy ambush troops appear.
4'13":  Unique item discovered.
4'16":  Ranmaru Mori defeated.

My Method:

Ranmaru Mori will appear in the northern fort when Sun Ce reaches that fort.  
Don't defeat the enemy officers too quickly, or else Sun Quan and the rest of 
your allies will catch up to Sun Ce too quickly and he won't be able to reach 
the northern fort.  Also, don't waste too much time, or else Ranmaru will 
appear and you won't be able to reach him in time.  It's a simple balance of 
delay and quickness.  When the stage starts, make your way west and defeat 
Liu Han and Nobumasa Okudaira.  Also, defeat some enemies in this area.  You 
should leave this area with about 100 kills.  Make your way west to where 
Naomasa Ii is and defeat him.  Clear this area out of enemy soldiers.  Make 
your way north to where Tadayo Okubo is.  Again, clear this area out of enemy 
soldiers and then defeat Tadayo Okubo.  You should be able to get about 250 
at this point in time.  Pay close attention to where Sun Ce is.  If he begins 
to move towards the northern fort, defeat Tadayo quickly and then head north.  
Defeat Cheng Pu to open up the gates along the western path.  If you have 
time, defeat Nobuyasu Matsudaira.  If not, ignore him.  When the enemy ambush 
troops, led by Ranmaru Mori, appear in the northern fort, make your way over 
to Ranmaru quickly and defeat him.  If you have been killing enemy soldiers 
at each point, you should have 300 easy.  If not, simply kill some more enemy 
soldiers on the map until you get 300.  When you have fulfilled all the 
requirements, your item will appear inside the central area of the map.  You 
cannot reach this area from the northern fort via the central path like you 
could in DW5, so you will have to go around.  Grab your item and then defeat 
Sun Ce to end the stage.

Nagamasa Azai
-------------

Item:  Medal of Odani

Stage:  Wei Chapter 7 - Battle of Yamazaki

Requirements:  Defeat Sima Yi and Zhuge Liang within 1 minute and 30 seconds
   of each other and defeat 100 enemies.

Location:  On top of Mt. Tenno, near the stronghold that is on the mountain.

Time Log:

0'07":  The Coalition Army is advancing.
0'17":  The Mitsunari Ishida unit is advancing toward Mt. Tenno.
0'30":  The Orochi Army is distributing its forces through the battlefield.
1'02":  Hooknose defeated.
1'37":  Sima Yi defeated.
2'13":  Enemy archers appear in great number on Mt. Tenno.
2'22":  Zhuge Liang defeated.
2'32":  The Coalition Army has claimed Mt. Tenno.
2'35":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

Zhuge Liang will be on top of Mt. Tenno while Sima Yi will outside the enemy 
main camp in the northeast.  It is probably easier to defeat Sima Yi first 
and then defeat Zhuge Liang next, since the item appears on top of Mt. Tenno.  
First, make your way toward the enemy main camp, defeating Hooknose along the 
way.  When you reach Sima Yi, defeat him.  You might want to defeat any 
archers that are around him, just to make sure that you do not get knocked 
off of your horse when you try to get on it to make your way to Zhuge Liang.  
When Sima Yi goes down, immediately make your way up Mt. Tenno, taking the 
eastern route to get there.  Ignore Hu Zhen along the way and then beat up 
Zhuge Liang quickly at the top of the mountain.  If you have 100 kills, which 
you should have easily gotten by now, your item will appear on top of the 
mountain.  Claim your item and then focus on protecting the mountain from 
enemy officers charging up to take it back.  Finishing the stage is simply a 
matter of keeping hold of Mt. Tenno, defeating Da Ji when she turns traitor, 
and using the reinforcements Cao Cao brings to lead a massive army against 
Dong Zhuo in the northeast.

Sakon Shima
-----------

Item:  The Catalog of Shadows

Stage:  Wu Chapter 8-X - Battle of Chi Bi

Requirements:  Within 15 minutes, clear the southern area out of enemy
   officers, knock down both bridges, succeed in the fire attack, defeat
   Masamune Date, and defeat 300 enemies.

Location:  Along the western path, near the western stronghold.

Time Log:

0'25":  Use a fire attack to destroy the enemy forces.
0'33":  Defeat the enemy officers stationed in the south of the battlefield.

1'06":  Chen Lan defeated.
1'25":  Lei Bo defeated.

        location.
2'28":  Defeat the defense captains and destroy the access bridges.
2'39":  Masamune Date advances
2'45":  Cao Xing defeated.
3'08":  The enemy western unit advances.
3'12":  The western access bridge has been destroyed.
4'00":  Li Su defeated.
4'17":  Lu Xiang defeated.
4'53":  Alliance formed with the Lu Xun Army.

5'27":  Zhang Ji defeated.
6'38":  Tsunenaga Hasekura defeated.

7'41":  Yang Huai defeated.
7'47":  The Lu Xun Army arrives as reinforcements.

8'04":  Reinforcements appear for the Orochi Army.
8'24":  Tsunamoto Oniniwa defeated.
8'34":  Masamune Date defeated.
8'47":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You need to do a lot of things, but you have lots of time to do everything.  
First, clear out the southern enemy officers.  There are four officers in 
this area.  They are Lu Kuang, Chen Lan, Lei Bo, and Sidewinder.  Once this 
is done, your engineers will appear.  Now, you will have to destroy both 
bridges in the central area of the map.  You don't have to personally do it, 
but both bridges must go down.  Normally, the eastern bridge goes down by 
your allies, so simply knock down the western bridge.  Once this is done and 
over with, escort the engineers to the side of the enemy forces.  While 
escorting your engineers to the fire attack point, defeat Li Su, Lu Xiang, 
Zhang Ji, and Tsunenaga Hasekura.  When the fire attack succeeds, make your 
way over to the eastern path.  Over here, Masamune Date and his officers are 
creating havoc in this area.  Make your way over to Masamune and defeat him.  
Your item should appear along the western path, near the western stronghold.  
Grab your item and then make your way over to Da Ji and Orochi and defeat 
them to end the stage.  If you want or if you still need to defeat him to 
unlock Lu Bu, you can also defeat Lu Bu, but you don't have to.

Yoshihiro Shimazu
-----------------

Item:  Hanafuda Cards

Stage:  Shu Chapter 2-X - Ambush at Nan Zhong

Requirements:  Succeed in the ambush attack, defeat Zhang He within two
   minutes of the ambush attack succeeding, and defeat 300 enemies.  You do
   not need to defeat the enemy officers that have been lured out into the
   ambush attack.

Location:  Northwestern corner of the map, near the western stronghold in
   this area.

Time Log:

0'19":  Jiang Wei is retreating to prepare an ambush.
0'22":  Lure out the enemy units from the west.
0'29":  The western enemy units have begun to advance toward the decoy unit.
0'35":  Lure the enemy units as far as the ambush point.
0'41":  Lure out the enemy units from the east.
1'15":  The western enemy unit has been successfully lured out.
1'18":  Lure out the remaining enemy units.
1'38":  The eastern enemy units have begun to advance toward the decoy unit.
1'41":  Lure the enemy units as far as the ambush point.
3'01":  The eastern enemy unit has been successfully lured out.
3'19":  The Jiang Wei Army has sprung an ambush.
4'18":  Zhang He defeated.
6'53":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You will need to lure four enemy officers into the central area of the map.  
There is no time limit to do this, so simply just take your time in luring 
everyone to the central area.  You must lure Naoyasu Akaza and Tamehiro 
Hiratsuka from the west and Zhou Fang and Niu Jin from the east.  When they 
reach the central area, Yoshihiro Shimazu's ambush plan will happen.  You do 
not have to defeat these four enemy officers.  In fact, it is encouraged that 
you do not do so, since you will need to defeat Zhang He quickly.  When both 
the eastern and western armies are lured out, immediately make your way for 
Zhang He.  Do not even wait for the ambush to happen, as you will waste time.  
When you reach Zhang He, only defeat Zhang He.  Do not defeat Da Qiao, as 
your victory conditions are to defeat Zhang He and Da Qiao.  When Zhang He is 
defeated, start killing off enemy soldiers.  Again, try to stay as far away 
from Da Qiao as possible, so you do not accidentally defeat her.  One good 
way to rack up kills is simply hang around the western path and let your 
allies defeat the enemy officers.  They are out of the way so that you can 
get your kills in peace and the enemies don't seem to run out too quickly in 
this area.  When you get your 300 kills, your item will appear in the 
northwestern area of the map.  Grab your item and defeat Da Qiao to end the 
stage.

1'17":  Suspicious activity has been detected on top of the towers.
1'27":  The enemy plan has been successfully detected.  Enemy ambush troops
        appear.
1'51":  Fan Chou defeated.
2'27":  Fei Yi defeated.

        successfully detected.

6'22":  Ma Su defeated.
6'43":  Yoshitsugu Maeba defeated.
7'10":  Li Ru defeated.
7'43":  Yuan Shao has been rescued.
7'46":  Unique item discovered.
7'59":  Dong Zhuo defeated.

My Method:

There are three forts on this stage that hold ambushes in them.  You will 
need to discover all three ambushes quickly.  First, make your way south.  
You will trigger an ambush, but this is not one of the required ambushes.  
Defeat Guo Si and Li Jue and continue your way south to the eastern fort.  
Here, destroy all four towers and defeat the enemy soldiers that appear when 
the towers fall.  This will cause the first ambush to fail.  Fei Yi and Fan 
Chou will appear.  Defeat them both and then move on to the northern fort.  
Here, there is a lone enemy soldier in the northwestern corner of the fort.  
Defeat the enemy soldier to make the second ambush fail.  Defeat Jiang Wan 
and then make your way south.  Defeat the three enemy officers that are in 
the central area of the map and then make your way west and then north.  
Protect your boat by defeating any enemy officers that are trying to reach it 
and then enter the western fort.  In the northwestern corner of this fort, 
there is an allied soldier.  The allied soldier will begin to move.  Follow 
the soldier and he will lead you to the next ambush.  Defeat Ma Su and Niu 
Fu.  Now, to get Zhuge Liang to arrive, you will need to defeat Dong Zhuo.  
Make your way to the southern castle.  This is where Dong Zhuo is.  Defeat 
Dong Zhuo and Zhuge Liang will appear.  If you have your 300 kills, which you 
should have by now, your item will appear outside of the northern fort.  Grab 
your item and then defeat Zhuge Liang and Sun Quan to end the stage.

Kanetsugu Naoe
--------------

Item:  Letter to Ieyasu

Stage:  Samurai Chapter 5 - Battle of Guan Du

Requirements:  Defeat Da Qiao and Diao Chan within 4 minutes and defeat 300
   enemies.  There is no time limit involved with the 300 kills.

Location:  Northeast corner of the eastern fort.

1'05":  The gates of Wu Chao have opened.
1'30":  Diao Chan defeated.
2'40":  Da Qiao defeated.
4'45":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You will definitely need a horse for this one, as Diao Chan and Da Qiao are 
separated by almost the entire stage.  As soon as the stage starts, make your 
way south to where Diao Chan is.  In order to get to where she is at, you 
will need to defeat either Yan Pu or Yan Yu to open up the gates.  When you 
have done that, immediately defeat Diao Chan.  Now, get on your horse and 
make your way west and then south to where Da Qiao is.  Defeat her quickly in 
order to get the kill in under the four minute mark.  Now, make your way back 
north and start assisting your allies so that they can begin to move south 
towards Da Ji.  You will probably want to get your 300 kills before you reach 
the eastern fort, as that is where your item will appear.  After your item 
appears, it's simply a matter of marching your forces south to where Da Ji is 
and then defeating her.

9'40":  Lu Bu is impressed by Nene's achievements.
9'44":  Unique item discovered.
9'50":  Sidewinder defeated.
9'57":  Lu Bu defeated.

My Method:

You need to protect all of your allies on this stage.  If one of your allies 
dies, you will not receive your item.  When the stage starts, make your way 
north and open up the front gate by defeating the Defense Captain.  It's 
almost like they want you to enter through the front.  Make your way inside 
and defeat Coachwhip, Urutu, and Diamondback quickly.  If you are quick 
enough, while you are waiting for things to happen, make your way east and 
knock off Tomomichi Iwanari.  If not, simply head west.  Either way, defeat 
Hidetsuna Sakenobe and Mitsuuji Ujiie on your way toward the engineer unit.  
A battering ram will appear, which you will need to defend, but Keiji Maeda 
takes priority.  If you have done a good enough job clearing out the area in 
front of the central inner gate, the ram should be fine for a while anyways.  
Keiji will appear along the western path when the engineers get too far north 
on the western path.  He will jump you, but Cao Cao will send an ambush party 
to jump him.  Defeat Keiji quickly, then head back to the area in front of 
the inner central gate.  Defeat any enemies that are here attacking your 
rams.  Now it's simply a matter of defeating enemy officers so that they 
won't defeat your allied officers.  I personally went up the eastern side, 
cleared this area out of enemy officers, then back down to the area just past 
the inner central gates.  Once in the central area, start clearing this area 
out.  When the inner central gate is destroyed, make a mad dash for Lu Bu.  
By now, you should either have 500 kills, or be very close to it.  You want 
to defeat Lu Bu and achieve your 500 kills quickly after the destruction of 
the central inner gate because the longer you go on without finishing up 
those two requirements, the more likely one of your allied officers will bite 
the bullet.  While fighting Lu Bu, you will probably also attract the 
attention of a couple other Orochi officers, so try to do everything possible 
to isolate Lu Bu and beat him down one on one.  When the mighty Lu Bu goes 
down, if you have done everything else, your item will appear along the 
western route, north of the blockade that was on the western route.  After 
you have grabbed your item, you can either defeat the rest of the enemy 
officers that are on the stage, or simply head for Da Ji and Orochi and knock 
off the terrible twosome.

Kotaro Fuma
-----------

Item:  Fuma Blood Seal

Stage:  Wu Chapter 6 - Battle of He Fei

Requirements:  Without luring the enemy officers into the northeastern castle
   or destroying the bridge, defeat Keiji Maeda, Zhen Ji, Cao Ren, and 300
   enemies.

Location:  Near the eastern bridge on the southern route, near Yue Jin's
   initial starting point.

Time Log:

0'16":  The enemy vanguard is advancing.
0'24":  Lure the enemy vanguard inside He Fei Castle.
0'30":  Keiji Maeda defeated.
0'42":  Allied ambush troops appear.
0'49":  Defeat Zhen Ji and prevent enemy reinforcements from arriving.
0'56":  Zhen Ji defeated.
1'12":  Cao Zhang defeated.
1'22":  The enemy's central unit advances.
2'30":  Cao Ren defeated.
6'35":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

You cannot lure the enemy officers into the trap at He Fei Castle.  First, 
simply charge out and defeat Keiji Maeda and Zhen Ji.  They are both powered 
up and the only way to get rid of that powered up status is by luring them 
into the trap.  Since you cannot do that, you will have to beat them powered 
up, which only means that it will take about five seconds longer for each 
kill.  When Keiji and Zhen Ji go down, clear this area of enemy officers by 
defeating Cao Zhang and Hiroie Kikkawa.  Make your way towards the bridges at 
the southeastern corner of the map.  Wait for Cao Ren and his troops to cross 
the bridge and start heading for He Fei Castle.  Cao Ren is also powered up, 
but if you ran through Keiji and Zhen Ji, Cao Ren is a cinch.  Defeat the 
enemy officers that Cao Ren brings along with him, as it will add to your 
kill total.  Do not destroy the bridge.  Doing so will cause you to lose your 
item.  Leave some enemy officers at the central area for your allied soldiers 
to fight, as they could wind up accidentally destroying the bridge for you.  
Instead, either make your way to the eastern or southern route and start 
racking up the kills.  You should be able to get to 300 kills by the time you 
clear out a side.  Your item will appear on the southern route near the 
western bridge.  Grab your item, clear out the central area, knock down 
bridges, then knock down Sun Quan.

Musashi Miyamoto
----------------

Item:  Book of Five Rings

Stage:  Shu Chapter 6 - Battle of Hu Lao Gate

Requirements:  Defeat 1000 enemies.

        site. 
8'32":  The Orochi Army advances.
8'38":  Niu Jin defeated.
8'48":  Zhu Ling defeated.
8'57":  Diao Chan defeated.
9'13":  Fall back further and lure them into the trap.
9'27":  The fire attack has succeeded.
9'41":  Niu Fu defeated.
10'00":  Sima Zhao defeated.
10'12":  Unique item discovered.

My Method:

The best area to get kills is north of the central area, at the area where 
the three paths meet.  There is an enemy stronghold nearby that will keep 
pumping out enemy soldiers for a good while.  To get to that point, first, 
head north and defeat the Defense Captain along the eastern path.  Make your 
way north to where Sun Ce.  If you play your cards right and chill at each 
stronghold along the way, you can have 200 kills even before you reach Sun 
Ce.  Rescue the leader of the Wu clan by defeating Zang Ba and Cao Ren.  Now, 
make your way south towards the central area, but stop at the area where the 
three paths meet.  Those three paths are the ones leading to the northwest, 
the northeast, and the central area.  Sit here and start killing enemy 
soldiers in this area.  Don't worry about the fire attack being successful.  
If it doesn't work, it doesn't work.  However, you should be able to get 
close to 800 kills before you have to worry about the fire attack not being 
successful.  When you have 800 kills, clear out the central area of enemies.  
Make your way west to where Diao Chan and her group of enemy officers are at 
and clear this area for another 100 enemy kills.  After the fire attack 
succeeds or fails or whatever, make your way to the northwestern corner of 
the map for your final 100 kills.  Your item will appear in the northwestern 
corner of the map, near where the Messenger is.  Grab your item and finish 
off Sima Yi to end the stage.

  FAQ/Walkthrough           \   6. Weapons and Elements
  WORWEAPO                   \_______________________________________________


Each characters has four weapons that he or she can obtain.  These weapons 
have varying base attacks, but the elements and bonus attack power that are 
on them can be changed around by the Weapon Fusion system.  Having a really 
good weapon can change the tide of a battle.

To fuse a weapon together, first you must have two weapons.  The first weapon 
you select is the weapon you want to keep, while the second weapon is the one 
you want to move the elements, attack power, and slots from.  When you fuse 
two weapons, the second weapon is discarded.  You can move any element you 
want, provided that the other weapon has enough room for the element and 
provided you have enough growth points to do so.

Elements only activate on charge attacks and not all charge attacks will 
activate an element.  Furthermore, some elements cannot be activated on 
certain charge attacks while others can.

Each weapon can have eight elements on them.  Special thanks to Kane2009 for 
pointing out the mistake I made here (I said four, not eight, which makes me 
a moron).  Each element can have a power of up to 10.  These elements range 
from the very powerful to the very useless.  They are listed as follows:

Flame:  Inflicts continuous damage while your enemy is on fire.  Juggle the
   enemy to keep the enemy on fire longer.
Ice:  Freezes your enemy in place, allowing you to deal more damage to a
   frozen enemy.
Bolt:  Inflicts damage on enemies surrounded by the enemy hit by the attack.
Flash:  Ignores your opponent's block.
Slay:  Has a chance to instantly kill a regular soldier while inflicting
   percentage based damage on enemy officers.
Drain:  Absorbs the Life of the enemy you attack.
Absorb:  Absorbs the Musou of the enemy you attack.
Air:  Deals extra damage on an airborne enemy.
Brave:  Deals extra damage on an officer.
Range:  Increases your attack range.
Multi:  Creates a shadow clone that increases the damage of your attack.
Agility:  Makes your attacks faster.
Might:  Inflicts critical damage.
Rage:  Strengthens your attack inversely proportional to your Life Gauge.


As for the elements I personally use, I always have Bolt, Flash, and Slay on 
my items.  I also tend to use Ice, Absorb, Air, Brave, Range, Multi, Agility, 
and Might, depending on the character I am using.  If the character I use has 
lots of juggling attacks, I use Air a lot.  If the character I am using has 
slow charge attacks, I put on Agility.  If the character I am using has power 
special attacks that require the Musou Gauge. I use Absorb.  I almost always 
use Multi and Might, since they increase the damage of charge attacks.  Play 
around with the elements on your characters to see which ones fit your 
characters the best.


--------------
Fourth Weapons
--------------

To get a fourth weapon, you must first be on either Hard or Chaos mode.  
Next, the stage you are on must either be a Three star difficulty or higher 
for Hard difficulty or any stage for Chaos.  Fourth weapons can be randomly 
found on these stages.  The higher the star rating, the easier it is to find 
fourth weapons.  I don't really have a stage where it is super easy to find 
fourth weapons, nor will I list any.  I just play really whatever stage I 
felt like on Hard or Chaos to get the weapons.  One quick hint though:  an 
easy way to send low level characters into these hard stages is to send two 
out with one powerful character.  You can solo the stage with the powerful 
character and still get weapons for the low level ones.

There are no frequently asked questions right now, although I guarantee you 
this:  If you ask me how to get Lu Bu's personal item, I will ignore your e-
mail.  I wrote a long description of how I did it and what I did before I 
tried to get the item, so refer to his personal item section.  Seriously 
people, it's not that hard to do.  When I start seeing some questions asked 
frequently, I will update this section.  As for now, most of the questions 
have been about personal items and such.
