Any other charcters will be covered later. -Goemon Goemon is a renowned and respected hero, but he is a mischievous rascal at heart.He is very short-tempered and is quick to get angry and attack his enemies in a rage. Goemon is decended from a family of warriors and the treasure of his family has been handed down from generation to generation in his family. Now he inherits the secret powers of his ancestors with the ability to turn a coin in a blazing ball of fire, and also his family's prized, sacred weapon, the pipe! Good Points: He's the all rounder and has the longest range projectile weapon out of all three characters. His Pipe can be upgraded into a Whip-like weapon called the "Chain Pipe" which burns enemies on contact. He starts the game with 100 Ryo. Bad Points: An average rating means there's nothing special about him. -Ebisumaru Goemon's fat and incredibly greedy, egotistical best friend who boasts an severly exaggerated view of his own sex appeal. Ebisumaru prefers to do things in his own way and in his own time, and if pushed, Ebisumaru can be quite tough and doesn't take crap from anyone else. Most of the time, he immediately cowers behind Goemon at the first sign of danger. However, Ebisumaru is always there for Goemon and would never let him down. His weapon is a paper fan. Good Points: His extra bulk means he has the best attacking power, and he has a useful medium range projectile, which when charged up can bounce off walls and fly around the screen! He also starts with the most money; 150 Ryo. Bad Points: Can't jump to save his life, so don't use him for levels with huge jumps! -Sasuke The mysterious ninja who Goemon fought back in the Ninja castle stage in Legend of the Mystical Ninja Has returned! Now that Sasuke knows that Goemon is not his enemy, he heads out at the request of his mentor, The Wise Old Man of Iga, to find Goemon and join forces with him. Sasuke is not human, he is a robot created by the Wise Old Man of Iga. Sasuke cares for Wise Old Man, and is like a son to him. Sasuke protects Wise Man with his life and is reluctant to let strangers near him. Good Points: Moves very fast, and can jump very high, making him a good choice for action stages. Bad Points: Has a very weak attack and starts with only 50 ryo, and he also has the shortest range projectile, the firecracker bomb. -Goemon Impact Goemon Impact is a mighty giant robot fighting machine created by the Wise Old Man of Iga. He has an odd smile on his face and never seems to STOP SMILING! For some reason Wise Man has designed Impact to resemble Goemon through both body and mind. Impact dresses like Goemon, he fights using similar weapons! He is summoned to battle using a magical sea shell called the CONCH SHELL. Impact seems friendly enough but is very naive and will obey just about anyone who has the Conch Shell! Goemon Impact turns up at the end of all of the odd-numbered worlds to do battle with an enemy giant robot. -Magginesu (Bad Guy!) He is a mysterious western general who has come to invade and westernize Japan with his army of Bunny-men! 4: Story After their last adventure, Goemon and Ebisumaru decide to go relax on vacation at a top holiday spot, Ryukyu Resort. Unfortunately the holiday is about to come to an abrupt end, as a mysterious figure watches them at a distance. The unknown person confronts Goemon and Ebisumaru. Goemon and Ebisumaru come to a screeching halt and look to see who this guy is... it's Sasuke the ninja! Sasuke says that he has grave news from Wise Old Man. It seems the peace of Japan is about to be disturbed by the threat of invasion. He then explains that the evil western warlord Maggenesu has sailed to Japan with his hordes of Bunny-men to invade, conquer and worst of all, westerinize Japan! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5: The Walkthrough!!!!! WORLD 1: Coastal Area This is the introductory level, which eases you into the game, so take it easy and use this area to practice your skills. Ryukyu Resort The first level of the game. You only have a few enemies to worry about mines, bunny-men and bunny-men on Fish robots. If you duck and then hit an enemy they'll fall over, and then you can kick him into his mates, like how Mario kicks Koopa troopas around in the Mario games! When the Bunny men on fish robots appear knock on off the robot then jump on yourself. The water will rise and you will be able to move much faster, so just keep shooting and watch out for other bunny-men on robots and the mines. Keep goimng right and then you will come to the Goal Raccoon, so just whack it and lots of money will come out, and grab as much as you can before it runs out. Satsuma Town Upon entering your character will automatically enter the first house to visit Wise Old Man! Wise Man will then explain that he wants to give you something, and he pulls out the Conch shell! After Wise Old Man gives you the shell, you can leave. This is basically your run of the mill town. Go find the house with the red curtain and select the furthest right option to save. Just keep going through and exit. Dusky Way It gets slightly harder here because you come across these annoying pogo-stick enemies which try to jump on your head and sap your health. A new type of Bunnyman will turn up here. These red colored bunnies are armed with a gun, and also tend to try and avoid your attacks. Just whack them when they least expect it! Also, the Mouse Tank will make it's first appearance here! Make good use of it as the vehicle will take damage for you unil it loses all it's health and is destroyed! Sumo Castle THIS IS WEIRD. At the start you will get Bunny Men with guns AND shields, and also some Bunny men will burst through the glass windows to attack, leap from abacus to abacus and beware of the bullet-spitting severed Samurai heads on Sticks! Watch out for the BIG sumo robot. You can knock it's head off and then jump in to pilot it! Just before the end of this area remember to DISMOUNT from the robot. If you take it into the boss fight, the boss is VERY hard to beat! Boss 1: Bunny Minion with Robo-Sumo Suit! If you ditched the robot then this boss is a sinch! Just keep hitting him and jump over him when he charges at you. HOWEVER, if you didn't ditch the robot, just keep using the slap attack and as soon as he crouchs to charge at you, walk towards him to keep from being pushed off the side of the arena!!!! Town destruction sequence! Basically you have to kill, maim and above all, DESTROY!!! Jump over gaps and ridges to make sure Impact doesn't get crushed between the screen and ridge! If you score well enough then you get a Pipe Bomb bonus which gives Impact a pipe bomb to shoot during battle! Impact Boss 1: The Sumo Robot! Watch out when he backs away as it means he is about to use his nasty Body Torpedo. When he starts moving side to side across the screen and then vanishes, he will suddenly appear in close to do the hand slap, so just punch him as soon as he enters your sights. If you feel uncomfortable, just use a pipe bomb! Also, when he starts sliding to the side he will shoot balls at you, so just quick punch or shoot them, or even just block! As his health wears down he will introduce a new attack where he goes berzerk shoots LOADS of the little balls. Just block on the side where the most balls are coming from, when he has lost his arms and head he will start repeatedly charging at you, just strong punch him away and he should fall soon. WORLD 2: Forest Area This is where the difficulty level rises up a bit, as things start getting quite hard here. Log Bridge Road This Level is one of those really annoying forced-scrolling levels, so keep up with the screen and don't fall off the logs! Watch out for the Hannyas that try to saw the logs, so if you see one immediately kill it!!! Also you will eventually come to a part where you are crossing a very long section and this ugly cyclops guy appears under the bridge. As he pops up, jump over him to protect from him smashing the log platform! Keep going until the goal! NOW YOU HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN TWO LEVELS TO GO ONTO NEXT, YOU CAN BEAT ONE AND COME BACK TO DO THE OTHER! You can either go to Goofy Woods or Log Lake. Goofy Woods This has one of the best pieces of music in the entire game playing in the background. Also some brand new enemies turn up here like the green bunny men with moustaches, big burly robot guys and the flying blue bunny men! This level has multiple paths through it so I'll cover one of them! Just keep going straight, you'll come across many moving platforms. Also, if you stay on the top of the tree stumps you can grab some neat little power-ups. Watch out for the flying bunny men trying to drop rocks on you, and beware of the mechanical fish that jump out of certain jumps! You'll come to a long stretch and then the goal raccoon won't be far away! Log Lake Before I tell you how to beat this level, I suggest if you are not playing as Sasuke, go back to a town, save your game, reset and then load up your file and choose Sasuke, because this level is VERY HARD AND REQUIRES ALOT OF JUMPING!!!!! The platforms are set out like see-saws. When you step on one end it lowers, and the other rise, the problem is that there are spikes between each end! You have to jump a few times on one end and then leap over the spikes onto the other! Make your way through and you'll come to the goal. Konami Town When you enter make sure you have 480 ryo, go into the shop and buy the pass, then go right and you'll come to a pair of guards. Talk to them and they'll let you through. Go right across the town and you'll come to the exit. If you go up at the first upwards turn before the guards however, you should come to a temple area. Look for the wide barrel type thing, and hit it. It should smash and reveal an underground passage and then you will go back to the map and open up a hidden level! HIDDEN STAGE: Bunny Valley! This is tricky, all I can say is that you will find this level easier with Sasuke! This stage requires LOADS of jumping, watch out for Darumanyos and other baddies who will try and knock you off the moving platforms. HIDDEN STAGE: Circo Puerto:- The Amusement park! Welcome to the hidden amusment park! here is the home of some great sub-games such as..... XEXEX! DEVIL BAZOOKA! FLOOR SWEEPER! GOEMON MEMORY GAME! This stage is just here for fun, you can leave any time you like! Here I'll give you the conrols for these subgames XEXEX D-pad: Move Y: Unleash probe weapon B or A: Shoot! This is some weird shoot'em up, keep firing at everything! DEVIL BAZOOKA D-pad: Move left or right B: Fire! The aim of this is to shoot the other devil and try not to get hit too much yourself! Floor Sweeper D-pad: steer Y: Accelerate X: Stop! B: Jump! This is a rip-off of Mario Kart, your aim is to wipe out as many of the foot-prints as possible! Goemon Memory Game D-pad: Move cursor B: Turn over cards It's the old memory game. Match the cards together, before your opponent does! Also, Sparkster the Rocket knight and Simon Belmont are hidden in this stage! Scary Hair-Cut Castle A castle with enemies that literally "Wig Out" at you. Okay, fight your way past the Bunny-wig-men and you'l come to some drums suspended in mid-air. jump onto the drums and HOLD THE B BUTTON, you should bounce higher, and then start bouncing realy high. Bounce across onto the next Drum and repeat to get across. You will come to a section where you must only make medium bounces or otherwise you'll impale yourself on the bammo spikes above the drums. Go from platform to platform until go get to the top! Then you'll come to a section with umbrellas, drums and bamboo spikes. The umbrellas rotate, so keep jumping to retain your footing, make your way across. Then you'll come to a part with lanterns hanging from the ceiling, spikes on the floor and chikens on barrels chucking bombs, knock a chicken off the barrel and leap onto cross safely over the spikes, beware of the lanterns as some of them fall down. Use this tactic to get across the room. Then you'll find the boss! Boss 2: Kabuki Hey it's that guy from Goemon's Great Adventure! Well he doesn't like Goemon and co. whatsoever, so be prepared. He rises to the top of the room and shoots energy bolts at you. Jump and run to avoid getting hit. Then he comes down and tries to hop on you. Run under him when he hops, and he will turn around. Start hitting him with your projectile like crazy, and jump when he shoots his brains at you! Then he uses his energy bolt attack again, just jump and run to avoid. Keep repeating until Kabuki is defeated. I reccommed Goemon for this boss. Then the castle will fall and you will get to chat to Yae before she journeys on her own way again. WORLD 3: Izumo This is where it gets HARD! Dragon Lake Has the best tune in the game, but is one of the hardest levels as well. You must basically jump onto the dragon and jump upwards off his head when he ducks off-screen, otherwise you'll die! Watch out for the flames and grab Mr. Elly Fant as soon as he appears and be prepared to jump off the Dragon when needed! Lake Town If you want to just get to the next level, keep going right, down the hills and keep going right, until you find a hut, go in the hut and pay the money for the exit tunnel, then go through the tunnel for the next level. If you want the alternate hidden stage... When you go down the hill, down between the two houses at the bottom of the screen then keep going right for the hidden stage! Samurai woods Go right from the start and down the hill. Go across the platforms with Darumanyos circling them, and next you should find Mr. Elly Fant. Grab him and be prepared for a long section with moving platforms, demons, Bunny-men and samurai heads on sticks! Keep going and keep your wits about until the exit! HIDDEN STAGE: Revenge of the Red Chef-blobs! Keep going right, and if you take the higher path you will get attacked by dolls, but if you take the lower path, it's time to slaughter some bunny-men! Next is a jumping section with lots of darumanyos, just before the exit! Food Castle This is a REALLY annoying stage. Watch out for the food blobs that come at you from out of the hot-plates. Also beware of the bunny-men hiding behind glass panes, just run past them. Keep going, and watch out for the fat-slicer platforms! Wait until the fat drops in, THEN jump on! Otherwise the fat-slicer will slice YOU up! Also take care not to fall into the shrimp batter! The Samurai robot shows up here, so use it to combat the other samurai robots! Boss 3: Puppeteer You can't really hurt this evil robot! What you have to do is survive his evil shadow animals that attack our heroes! Crouch in the corner and keep swiping away to keep the beasts at bay! When the black candle runs out, walk up to the Puppeteer and hit him. That's it! Now onto another town destruction sequence and the next Impact boss! Impact Boss: Slash and Spinning Disk First you have fight the spinning disk. When it charges at you, punch it! Then it blows up. Slash will fight you, so watch out when he teleports, and use your radar to pinpoint where he's coming from. If he charges up energy, he is about to use his tri-blaster, so either block, or punch at it like a maniac! When he comes close, hard punch him before he slashes you. Pipe bomb him if you don't feel comfortable! After Slash falls, relax and watch the cut-sequence! WORLD 4: Forest! This is a very tricky world, so use your knowledge of secret bits to get through the levels! Forest Town Go right and at the end go up, then go left until the you reach the temple entrance for an exit tunnel to one stage (Lava Caves). To go to Lava Mine, go right then down, then head right until the dead-end and go down again! The Lava Mine Car Stage I suggest you play as Goemon for this stage! Okay, walk right and you will come across Yae, talk to her and then the ground will explode, you'll land on a cart and the cart will start going along the track! Watch out for the Darumanyos, fireballs and the Hanyaas. When the cart slows down get ready to jump to the next cart, and when the cart speeds up, start swiping with your weapon like crazy! The raccoon will drop down on another cart at the end, smash it quick before the carts get to the end of the track! Lava Caves Watch out for the darumanyos spinning around the platforms, and the fire-spitting lanterns that fly around the stage! Also beware of Lava-dwelling enemies that try to damage you as you jump over lava pits! The biggest danger however is the Dragon samurais that beat their drums and send goblins to cling onto you. Waggle the D-pad left and right to shake them off! Destroy enemies as soon as you see them. Festival Town Just keep heading up and then at the top, and then go right and you should come to the exit. Hidden in this stage is Winbee from the popular Pop n' Twinbee series! Mouse Woods Jump into a mouse robot and get going! Shoot like crazy because pogo-monsters and chef blobs attack you constantly throughout this level! Jump over the gaps and don't get so carried away that you forget to shoot! Fish Lake This is the last time you'll need the fish-robot. Keep going until you find a fish-robot, knock the rider off and jump in yourself. Then comes a water section, so shoot the mines to knock them into the air, or jump over them. Then you'll come to a part with a wall too high to jump over normally, jump using the fish-robot then jump off in mid-air. Then continue onwards and get another fish robot. When you see the goal raccoon, ignore it and go up against the wall and jump with the fish-robot, then jump off in mid-air, onto the top of the ledge. So go right and then you'll come to the real raccoon! Toy Castle At the start you'll come across card men and swinging yo-yos, so just time your jumps carefully with the yo-yos. Then you'll come to a spinning top section which you'll need to jump from top-to-top to survive. Then you'll come across more yo-yos, and then a section with three rising doll heads. Jump on and off the dolls to avoid the platforms that can crush you, and watch for the pot. Smash it for a golden cat doll! Then onto the boss! Boss 4: The Masked Ninja This boss attacks in several ways, my best suggestion is to use Sasuke or Goemon. Then he is normal, he jumps around the screen trying to stamp on you. As a cat, he will throw axes and try to slash you. As a fox, he will use diving kicks, and as an octopus he breathes fire! Stay at a distance and use your distance weapon to take him out! WORLD 5: Mt Fear This world is VERY short and quite easy, except for the NIGHTMARE of an Impact boss at the end! Ski Resort This stage is really easy, jump onto the ski-lifts for an easy ride, but be careful as some will fall when you step on them for too long. The next section involvles moving ski lifts that you have to jump from and also moving lifts that break after standing on them for a few seconds! Keep hanging on until the end! Runaway Snowman Head! The only thing you can really do on this level is RUN! Keep running away from the snowman head that is rolling after you. When it suddenly flies over your head and lands in the water, jump on it and try to survive the waves of enemies that come at you. The snowman head will begin to shrink, so when the enemies have stopped coming prepare to jump off when the head is so small you can't move without being in danger of falling off. Then you will come to the exit! Snow Town Save your game when you get here, and just keep heading right you will meet the last Bunny minion. Then you will be in a town destruction sequence and then onto The Grandfather Thunder Mech! Impact Boss: Old Grandfather Robot This thing is so hard!. Grandfather has plenty of different attacks up his mechanical sleeves, so be prepared! He attacks by launching headbutts, extending his tentacle arms to try and electrocute you, and also by shooting, and charging. Hard Punch him when he comes close, and block the balls he shoots. When you've warn his health down he will back away and send waves of energy at you, so punch them or shoot them to destroy them. After a few waves you will now be moving sideways and Grandfather will be keeping up behind a row of pillars. Punch him when he charges and shoot when he is behind the pillars as you go past, Pipe bomb him if you feel uncomfortable! (There is no room for error! You must take advantage of every attack opportunity to defeat him! ~The Mystic Ninja~) WORLD 6: Sky Boat Castle! THE FINAL AREA! Get ready because the final fight is just around the corner! Sky Castle Gates This is probably one of the hardest levels in the game, because it consists of many annoying mid-bosses that turn up when you don't want them to! After going right for a bit, you'll be attacked by some weird parodius-style monster that shoots cannonballs and fireballs. Start attacking it's face, but back off when it shoots at you. Repeat until it dies, and when you come to a blocked gate just use your powered-up projectile attack to bust it open! Then after going along a bit more, the parodius-monster-thing shows up again, this time shooting Darumayos, fireballs and bombs! Whack the bombs BACK at the monster, and avoid the Darumanyos keep repeating until it dies. Just pass through the rest of the level and you'll come to the goal! Sky Town You'll need to be very careful in this town because there are many thieves who will steal your money and these purple Ebisumaru look-a-likes who will downgrade your weapon if they touch you! You'll need to make your way to the northeast of the town, and you'll come to what looks like a fortress wall and you will see a barrel against it. Smash the barrel and an underground pathway will appear. Go down the pathway and follow it around. You'll resurface in the other side of town where you can exit. REMEMBER TO SAVE YOUR GAME!!!! Sky Castle Wall The one level just before the final battle! This stage is tricky, so always go slowly because tiles peel from the roof and will fall on you if you are not careful. You'll have to watch out for the water valves between some platforms as they tend to open and let out a torrent of water which will damage your character upon touch! You'll come across another section of falling roof tiles, and then sudddenly the large platform you are on will suddenly sink, so leap forwards onto the next platform as fast as you can. Also on this level are gun turrets that aim at your character and fire, so just throw your projectile weapon at them to destroy them. After a few more platforms, you'll come to the goal raccoon. Sky Castle Showdown! THIS IS IT! THE VERY LAST STAGE IN THE GAME!!!!! This stage is set out like a town but there are alot of dangers, so beware of the spinning servant girls and the weird octo-stickmen! in this area you have to find a gate to one of the revisions of the previous castles, and they are mega hard versions of the castles you have been in! After that you will be in another area with lots of statues of Magginesu that shoot lasers, and you have to do another revised castle. Do this castle and then you will be in an area with a golden fortune doll and some money. Collect these and enter the gate above you for the FINAL BATTLE!!! Final Boss: Magginesu It's time to teach this evil general a good lesson about trying to mess with the Goemon Gang! He'll start by throwing out two umbrellas. One will start moving from left to right, just underneath him, and one will start movng left to right over your character's head, so stay underneath the lower umbrella and keep following it, because Magginesu will use a laser. When the laser is over jump up ON TOP of the first umbrella and then onto the second umbrella, and then throw your projectile weapon at Magginesu! When you've hit him, he will start bouncing around the room, keep repeating this process to finish him off!! Suddenly when you defeat this guy, his head falls off. It was a robot double!! Then REAL Magginesu will appear on the huge monitor behind you! He laughs saying you'll fail. He has Omitsu, Yae, Lord and Princess Yuki, and then he says he has THE CONCH SHELL! Then Magginesu uses the shell Summon Impact to battle! Magginesu now has Impact under his power! Meaning you have no choice but the defeat Impact in Battle! Ultimate Final Boss: Goemon Impact Impact is just so hard! This fight is very difficult because Impact has amazingly high defense, meaning he only loses 1 Hp every time you score a hit on him! Impact will rise up in the background, and his sights will appear on-screen to follow your every move! KEEP MOVING or otherwise if Impact's sights lock on, he will shoot you! The ONLY way you can actually hurt Impact is this. The Bunny Minions who you faced throughout the other areas will appear at the sides and start chucking bombs at you, so what you have to do is to hit the bomb so that the bomb goes into Impact's huge mouth! Be careful as Impact does not receive damage if the bomb goes over his shoulder or hits his chin when his mouth is closed. Depending on what color the bomb is, each bomb can do something pretty nasty if you don't hit it into Impact! BLACK BOMB: Explodes when it hits the floor. RED BOMB: Creates a flame which burns continuously for a little while. YELLOW BOMB: Bounces until it hits something or falls off the side. BLUE BOMB: Creats a wave of energy, so jump to avoid it! GREEN BOMB: Green bomb can't be swiped into Impact because they give you extra coins when hit, otherwise they just explode when they hit the floor! Also ALWAYS WATCH IMPACT'S FACE. DEPENDING ON HOW HE IS LOOKING, HE HIMSELF MAY DECIDE TO ATTACK! If Impact looks angry, watch out for these attacks! Punch: Immediately run to one of the edges of the platform, and Impact should miss you altogether! Blast Beam: If you see Impact holding his pipe close to his mouth, immediatly swipe a bomb into his mouth or otherwise Impact will spit out a small ball of red energy which then causes a GIGANTIC explosion! Sending you flying inyo the air, Impact's sight will then dramatically gain speed and searches all over the screen to try to lock on so that Impact can shoot! Keep sweeping all over the screen to avoid the sights! Just keep knocking bombs in Impact's mouth and eventually he will fall. I STRONGLY RECCOMMEND USING EBISUMARU FOR THIS LAST BOSS!!!!!! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6: Secrets, Cheats and Codes!

SHE WILL THEN OPEN UP THE VERY LAST HIDDEN STAGE! THERE ARE ACTUALLY FIVE DEMON HEADS TO FIND, BUT YOU ONLY NEED FOUR. Last stage: HELL! The final area you find in this lovely cutesy game is Hell? Well it suits, because this is the hardest level in the entire game, and wait until you get a load of the boss at the end of this level! Watch out for the blue zombies, they throw axes at you if you hang around for too long! The first area involves falling spikes that try to squash your cute little hero! Then next comes a sea of fire which you must cross while avoiding bats and demons, and leaping from spinner to spinner! Then it's a frantic climb up a castle before the fire floods the area and burns you alive, then up some steps to the nasty boss at the end! HIDDEN BOSS: DRACULA! Just like in the castlevania games, Dracula's only weak spot is his ugly blue head! He fights by teleporting around the screen and upon rematerializing, he shoots a group of fiery bats at your character! If you're too far away, use your throwing weapon, but it'll only do less damage, so try to stay close so you can strike him in the face, as it does far more damage! When Dracula dies Kabuki will appear and then you will have to fight him! He uses the same pattern that he used in the main boss fight with him so refer back to those to defeat him. 7: Special Thanks (and lots of Kudos go to......)

JAY DRIVE!- My older brother for helping me with my website and for looking after me all these years! KONAMI!- For making the Goemon games of course! And no thanks to my computer, because it kept screwing up while I was trying to write this, and delayingmy efforts to get it sent in! Thanks very much to everyone who helped with this including friends and family, and friends from other places who I am friends with over the internet. Please stop by my website at http://members.tripod.co.uk/Gerimon. I Might make a html version of this walkthrough with screenshots and maybe even level maps. I also might make a SPC collection (SPC is SNES MUSIC files which can be listened through win-amp providing that you have the Snes Amp Plug-in!) of Ganbare Goemon 2. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THIS HAS BEEN A PRESENTATION OF THE MYSTICAL WEB SITE OF GOEMON.
