    ================================================================================
    TECHNIQUES
    
    Some techniques you should always do
    
    -Block a lot
    It either reduces damage or just you don't take damage at all. Just hold L1 when
    you're getting in position for an attack. You must block if you even want to 
    survive in this game.
    
    -Roll
    Always block and roll. Always block and roll. Some enemies, no scratch that, 
    MOST enemies have a move that will break your block and leave you open. Roll 
    when they miss and then kick their ass with your ninja skills. You can also get
    through an area quicker if you roll and then jump and keep repeating. You'll go
    much faster than just running.
    
    -Wall Attacks
    These can be your best friends with a very strong weapon (like the Dabilahro or
    Unlaboured Flawlessness). Simply run up to a wall, jump off and /\. If anyone is
    near you, it'll hurt a lot. This was the only way I beat the three boss battle
    (don't wanna ruin it for you(only in mission mode)) You can also do this with 
    the Dragon Sword but it's not as powerful as the heavy weapons. 
    
    -Ultimate Techniques
    When you kill someone, they leave essence behind. If it's yellow and you don't
    care about money, suck it up with holding /\. If its blue but you have a lot of
    life, hold /\ and suck it up. If itís red and you donít care about ninpo,
    suck it up. It will absolutely damage your enemies A LOT and it'll give you
    more karma. There's a trick where you can absorb the essence quicker where you
    jump and right before you land, you hold /\, you'll IMMEDIATELY suck it up and
    unleash your fury. You can even do it from a roll jump, but make sure you're
    holding block WHILE you're roll jumping because you might accidentally suck up
    the essence normally.
    
    -Ninpo
    If you like ninpo and think itís useful, use it. But it's NOT necessary. You can
    go through the entire game without using it once. I never used it in the game 
    and I'm 2300 place (in normal mode) and 620 in mission mode. Never used it. 
    I don't see the point of using ninpo to kill enemies that have a certain way of
    beating without using it. But again, if you like the invulnerability and 
    animations, go nuts.
    
    -Bow
    I haven't figured this out till my second playthrough. When you're aiming in 
    first person with the bow, you can zoom in with R1. It's much easier to snipe 
    people this way than the other. Some of you knew that, others didn't. Still a 
    useful feature. 
    
    -Use different combos.
    Don't use the same attack over and over. Use the wide variety of combos left to
    you like []/\[][][][], []/\[][][]/\, [][]/\/\/\, jump toward enemy /\, [][][]/\
    and a lot of others. Also, use different weapons for certain enemies. You don't
    have to upgrade the weapon but still use it. Come on. Ryu holding those heavy
    things for no reason.

    ================================================================================
    
    ENEMIES
    ================================================================================
    Brown Ninjas
    ================================================================================
    
    These guys suck. Just block their attacks and hit them with [][][]. They'll die.
    
    Found in Normal mode in first level.
    
    ================================================================================
    White Ninjas
    ================================================================================
    
    A little bit tougher than the brown ninjas, these guys still aren't that good. 
    They can throw shurikens at you and they have a bit better combos. Still, block
    their attacks and hit them with [][][].
    
    Found in Normal mode/Hard Mode in first level.
    ================================================================================
    Black Spider Ninjas
    ================================================================================
    
    First time I fought them, I thought "They look cool but probably suck." 3 secs 
    later, got exploded. They have exploding shurikens. Didn't know you can dodge 
    them till I read it on the boards, as soon as the shuriken is going to blow, 
    roll. It won't hit. What I do is just Izuna Drop them when I have the chance. 
    But, [][]/\ should work good too if you don't have it yet. Block their combos
    and avoid their grabs. Also, if you hold block too long, they'll do their grab
    move.
    
    Found in Chaps 4,6,8,9,13 on Normal mode.
    
    ================================================================================
    Red Spider Ninjas
    ================================================================================
    
    They got exploding shurikens too but when they hit you with their sword, you get
    burned to do more damage on you. Same combos and same grab. Do the same thing
    with the black spider ninjas but avoid their combos even more. Don't get burned.
    Also, if you hold block too long, they'll do their grab move.
    
    Found in chapters 1,4,5,6,8,9,13 on Master Ninja mode.
    
    ================================================================================
    Purple Ninjas
    ================================================================================
    
    These guys don't have the exploding shurikens but the Windmill shuriken.
    Windmill Shuriken?! Damn! They got a different grab which is just as painful as
    the other ninjas. Do the same thing with the others but be even MORE evasive. If
    you're being overwhelmed by them, kill one and Ultimate Technique the others.
    Also, if you hold block too long, they'll do their grab move.
    
    Found in Chaps 1,4,5,6,8,9,13 on Very Hard Mode
    
    ================================================================================
    Samurais
    ================================================================================
    
    For the longest, I thought these guys were the guys who shot fireballs at you 
    but that was the Warlocks. They're very slow but can pack a punch. Just block 
    until they're combo is finished. Then counter with []/\/\ and when you get the 
    lvl 2 dragon sword use []/\[][][][] instead.
    
    Found in Chapter 2 and 14 on any mode
    ================================================================================
    Warlocks
    ================================================================================
    
    These are the guys who shoot fireballs at you from a distance or teleport near
    you and get you in a cheap combo. To stop that, flying swallow them, and kill 
    them with [][]/\
    
    Found in Chapter 2 and 14 on any mode
    ================================================================================
    Army soldiers
    ================================================================================
    
    There's a number of these guys. One is the normal soldier in white. Block his 
    kicks and Izuna Drop him. The commander, who is in black, has a shield so []/\/\
    him and he should be on the floor. Finish him with /\. Then there are the 
    robotic ones who look kickass. Do the same that you did for the normals. Later
    on, there are soldiers who have bazookas and guns with swords on it. Izuna drop
    them and for the bazookas, flying swallow and []/\[][][][]. If you play on a 
    harder mode, you'll find guys who will counter your flying swallow painfully. 
    Try to Izuna Drop or throw explosive arrows.
    
    Found in Chapters 3,4,5,6,8,10,11 on any mode
    ================================================================================
    Motorcycle Guys
    ================================================================================
    
    The only way these guys can hurt you a lot is if they run you over. Roll when
    they're coming. Flying swallow them a couple times till they fall off or if you
    have timing, guillotine throw them (it's hard though). Keep in mind that when 
    they fall off, they act as normal soldiers, so you gotta kill them.
    
    Found in Chapters 4,6 on any mode.
    ================================================================================
    Red Dinos
    ================================================================================
    
    These guys look really intimidating but they're not that tough. They have a 
    chomp attack that can't be blocked and hurts, a tail swipe when you're behind 
    them, a fire attack that can't be blocked, a 2 hit claw attack, and a tackle and
    roll. You can block the roll and roll when he's running to you. Block the claw 
    attack. Best thing is get in front of them and []/\[][][][] them and roll away. 
    Repeat. When you get the Dabilahro, [][][][][]/\ them. 
    
    Found in Chapters 6,15,18 on any mode.
    ================================================================================
    Ogres
    ================================================================================
    
    These guys are huge and hurt if they hit. You should have the Dabilahro when you
    face them so when they swing their mace, roll forward and [][][][][]/\ them. If
    they jump, roll away and do [][][][][]/\ again. Just keep repeating to take them
    down.
    
    Found in Chapter 14 in any mode
    ================================================================================
    Brown and pink fiends
    ================================================================================
    
    The pink ones are the ones that are annoying. The browns are easy. Block their 
    normal attacks and roll when they dig underground and pop out. [][]/\/\ them. 
    For the pinks do the same thing, but watch out for their aerial attacks. To kill
    them, Izuna Drop them.
    
    Found in Chapters 6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15,16,17,18 in any mode.
    ================================================================================
    One eyed fiends
    ================================================================================
    These are the guys with one eye and look kick ass. They also kick ass too. They
    have the same moves as the brown and pink fiends, but a new move that involves
    them doing a slide and knocking you on the ground and then stabbing you. You
    might wanna avoid that by rolling. Again, you should Izuna Drop them or [][]/\/\
    them.
    
    Found in Chapters 6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15,16,17,18 on hard mode
    ===============================================================================
    Zombies
    ================================================================================
    
    They're very slow except the archers. They are quick with the shot and got good
    aim. Go for them first. Do your best combos like [][]/\/\/\ or with the flails,
    [][][]--->[][][][][], the cremator. It looks kickass. For the other zombies, 
    they either hit you with their axes or maces or molest you. If they're molesting
    you, mash buttons. Also, you can flying swallow them to decapitate them to lower
    their vision. Later on in the game, you'll face purple zombies who can take 
    a lot of damage. Use the Dabilahro's [][][][][]/\ and keep repeating. You can
    also cut off one of their arms, by jumping and pressing /\. This affects nothing
    though.
    
    Found in Chapters 7,9,16 on any mode
    ================================================================================
    Catwoman
    ================================================================================
    
    I hate these damn cats. They flying swallow you all the time and do a 360 grab
    that hurts. If you like the Lunar, use it. I don't like it so I don't use it or
    upgrade it. Or you can Izuna Drop one of them, and then On Land Charge the cats
    around where you landed. If you really can't kill them, shoot explosive arrows
    in mid-air.
    
    Found in Chapter 17 on Normal Mode. Some other places on harder mode
    ================================================================================
    Zombified Army guy
    ================================================================================
    
    I hate this guy too. They're very quick, have a guillotine throw, and has a 
    fireball attack that's unblockable. Izuna drop one of them and don't stay too 
    far or too close. I personally like []/\[][][]()/\ (The () is circle)
    
    Found in Chapters 14 and 16 on any mode.
    ================================================================================
    Mermaids
    ================================================================================
    
    These guys are annoying but not too difficult. Run up to them and flying swallow
    them. When they're underwater, throw your windmill shuriken at them underwater.
    Then just keep repeating the flying swallow, windmill shuriken until they're 
    dead. These guys can also be Izuna Dropped.
    
    Found only in Chapter 13 (thankfully)
    ================================================================================
    Ghost Fish
    ================================================================================
    
    If you want to get a lot of essence, keep fighting them over and over. To kill
    all of them without getting bitten once, mash [] with the flails until you're
    ABOUT to finish, jump and then []. Repeat. If you do manage to get bitten, mash
    [].
    
    Found in Chapters 17 and 18 on any mode
    ================================================================================
    Crab Fiends
    ================================================================================
    
    Watch out for their lasers and claw attacks. Especially watch out for that grab.
    Keep [][][]/\ing them and kill the others with the Ultimate Technique.
    
    Found in Chapter 17,18 on any mode
    ================================================================================
    Flying Fiends
    ================================================================================
    
    These are the guys with a scythe that float around and make a blue ring around
    you. They can teleport out of nowhere and break your guard with a downwards 
    strike. Keep flying swallowing them and if possible try to do []/\[][][][] and 
    you may catch them in it and cause some major damage. 
    
    Found in Chapters 7 on any mode.
    ================================================================================
    Knightmares
    ================================================================================
    
    These are guys are nightmares if you don't know what you're doing and a cakewalk
    if you do. Get out your Dabilahro, get close to them, hold block, wait for them
    to attack, COUNTERATTACK the first strike. Keep repeating. When he transforms,
    roll because the transformation hurts you if you're touching him. It still works
    even if they transformed. That wasn't so hard. 
    
    Only found in Chapter 17 on any mode.

    ================================================================================
    BOSSES
    
    
    ================================================================================
    1. Murai
    ================================================================================
    
    He's the buff guy in the very first level after you fight all those ninjas for 
    no apparent reason. He got nunchakus but he's kickass with them. He got a couple
    moves. He has a three hit combo, rush attack, roll, and grab. To dodge the 3 hit
    combo, block or roll. he only grabs if you're close to him. His rush hurts, but
    thatís your best time to knock him. After he does a rush, dodge it and quickly 
    press [], /\,/\. You'll hit him with the [],/\ but not with the last one. He'll 
    block it. Just keep repeating that and you'll beat him easily.
    
    Found in Chapter 1
    
    ================================================================================
    2. Masakodo
    ================================================================================
    
    He is the very intimidating flaming guy on a flaming horse who just somehow 
    burned your only way out. WHATEVER MODE this is, he will always have warlocks 
    with him. Cheap Bastard. there is a preset limit to them so you can kill them 
    all if you want. He doesn't really have any moves except sometimes he gets you 
    with his rope and slams you down real hard. That hurts so just hope he 
    doesn't do that. Every time he's about to hit a wall, his horse gets his 
    hind legs. Flying swallow him at that moment. Repeat.
    
    Found in Chapter 2
    ================================================================================
    3. Doku
    ================================================================================
    
    Just lose. But if you want to win, just keep dodging his sword combo, 
    sword throw flamethrower, shockwave and his one hit kill stab. Hit after 
    rush attack. If you do win, you'll unlock the next difficulty right away and 
    mission mode.
    
    COMPLETE PROPS to Setho_O for way.
    Saw it on youtube. Beginning, charge up a UT but let go before it turns blue.
    When he does the wave, roll toward him and []/\ and when you land, /\. He should
    do his 5 strike combo. Roll away and at the 5th strike roll to him and []/\, 
    when you land, /\. He should do the 5 hit combo again. Repeat. Worked amazingly.
    
    Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKWqESor5HY
    
    Found in Chapter 2
    ================================================================================
    4. Dynamo
    ================================================================================
    
    He's the robotic bastard who shoots lasers at you. He got a couple of moves 
    which are his laser shooting. Run in a circle to dodge it. His smack attack. 
    He smacks you with his laser. Just block or roll. His very fast shooting. He 
    only does it if he's close to dying. Roll jump in a circle. To hit him, 
    get close to him. Block or roll from his smack and counter with [],[],/\,/\. 
    Keep repeating
    
    Found in Chapter 3
    ================================================================================
    5. Hydracubus
    ================================================================================
    
    He looks hard but he's real easy. All he does is jiggle his tentacles and swing
    em around. Block and roll away when he swings him because it can hurt. Just 
    spam Flying Swallow on his tentacles till he has none. Then hold /\ to absorb 
    the essence from the tentacles and Ultimate Technique his ass. It should take 
    about roughly 1/3 of his life. When he's almost dead, he starts spouting green 
    stuff from his mouth? Not sure about that but just don't stay too far from him 
    and it won't hit.
    
    Found in Chapter 6
    ================================================================================
    6. Bone Dragon
    ================================================================================
    
    He is the giant bone dragon that you made alive by accident which you actually
    needed to progress through the game. Really? Wow. Anyway, his moves are 
    throwing bones at you. Just roll to dodge. A chomp attack, I never got hit so 
    I'm just gonna say roll away from the middle. A claw swipe, block or roll. 
    And a tail swipe This HURTS so you should definitely avoid it. Time the jump 
    (jump straight up).Or you can stand in the brown spot where his tail meets his 
    backbone. Be careful because he does it several times in a row later on. Anyway
    to hurt him just hit his hands and legs with [][][] or [][]/\/\. Keep hitting 
    the claws till all of them are muscle.
    
    Found in Chapter 7
    ================================================================================
    7. Gamov
    ================================================================================
    
    Too bad you have to play this guy with Rachel because in mission mode, you fight
    him with Ryu and it was 20 times easier (literally). When you're far away from 
    him he shoots at you with his guns. To avoid this, just spin jump to him. When 
    you're close to him, he either does a knife knife knife uppercut, knife kick, 
    or grab. You want him to do the knife knife knife uppercut. You can either 
    counterattack (you need timing) or spin away before the 3rd knife. You 
    should be ale to hit him with [][][][] which hurts him a lot. If he's still on 
    the ground go ahead and jump /\ him. That's cheapshotting, just like you. If you
    are really having trouble, guillotine throw him. It hurts him (again you need
    timing)

    8. Hydracubus (Again)
    ================================================================================
    
    It's the exact same battle so I'll just copy and paste.
    
    
    He looks hard but he's real easy. All he does is jiggle his tentacles and swing
    em around. Block and roll away when he swings him because it Can hurt. Just 
    spam Flying Swallow on his tentacles till he has none. Then hold /\ to absorb 
    the essence from the tentacles and Ultimate Technique his ass. It should take 
    about roughly 1/3 of his life. When he's almost dead, he starts spouting green 
    stuff from his mouth? Not sure about that but just don't stay too far from him 
    and it won't hit.

    Ahhhh. Alma. The most hardest boss in the entire game (IMO). The sister of 
    Rachel. Good looks run in the family (at least later on). She has huge arsenal 
    so listen up. She throws pillars at you, you roll ump and roll again when you 
    land. She throws  energy pink balls at you. Same as the pillars, roll jump, roll
    She makes a wall of pink. RUN THE HELL AWAY!!! If she gets you in it, say 
    goodbye to a 3rd of your life. She also dives at you just block. And she can 
    stomp on you. Just roll. Just keep on trying to flying swallow her. She'll 
    dodge a lot, but once you hit her she'll be stunned. Now's the time to put 
    some real damage. []/\[][][][] her. It'll take out roughly a third or her
    life. Just keep dodging and bringing the pain till she gets her head exploded.

    He's the upgraded version of Dynamo. I've killed you already so why you gotta 
    come back. His new move is his best move, his rush. It hurts like a bitch and 
    it's hard to see coming if you're close. I can't really find out a great way 
    to beat -him except do the same thing with Dynamo BUT WATCH OUT FOR HIS RUSH!
    When he outs down his cannon, he's gonna do the rush. Get close to him, and keep
    []/\/\ing him. Block his smacks and grab and roll when he puts his cannon down. 
    You'll probably need elixirs if you get hit a lot by his rush. But thats the 
    only thing you gotta worry about.

    They sent the military so why wouldn't they send out tanks? Only things the tank
    does is shoot machine gun fire at you and mortars. Nothing less you should 
    expect. To hurt it a lot, just pick up the APSDFS Cores (or whatever the letters
    are) and keep jumping and shooting at it. You'll know it'll fire a mortar at you
    if it's turret is aiming at you. Just jump or roll (or roll jump) out of the way
    After you kill one, they send another at you. Just do the same thing.
    
    Alternate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (email)
    "Really easy technique here. Shoot the tank with explosive arrows first to cause
    the guy inside the tank to hide (at this point, the tank is not moving for a few
    seconds) As soon as this happens, switch to your APDFS arrows and shoot 3 into
    the tank, then get ready to dodge right afterwards. Repeat this process and the
    tank will be gone in no time."

    This thing can be some trouble if you don't have good timing with dodging the 
    mortars or if you can't aim with the bow. He has a machine gun fire and fires
    mortars. The machine gun doesn't really hurt and can be blocked. The mortar can
    be dodged but needs great timing. As soon as it's close, roll jump away. When 
    the chopper is far away, shoot APSFSD Cores at him with your strong bow. When 
    it's very close to you. Keep roll jumping and firing the cores. It should 
    go down soon.

    and he does a swipe with his body. It hurts if it hits. But that's what you want
    him to do. As soon as he's gonna come down, roll toward him. Retaliate with [][]
    /\/\/\.Soon you'll face two at a time. You just gotta be more evasive.
    
    Alternate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (email)
    "(applies for 1 and 2). Really easy technique, follow the same technique you
    have listed except use the Dabilahro (make sure it's on level 3). Instead of
    your retaliation method, use this one: Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle,
    Triangle. With the Dabilahro this does a nasty combo to the worm and within 4
    times doing it, you can kill the worm in a matter of seconds."

    He's the boney bird who woke up from the brand of valor. He has a glitch that 
    makes him really easy. But his moves still hurt like hell.  he has a horizontal
    laser swipe, just roll forward to dodge it. He has a vertical laser swipe, just
    roll left or right. And he can rush at you just roll. When he's behind the 
    stairs to your destination, keep flying swallowing his knees. He may hit you 
    with wings or stomp on you. When he's on the other side. Quickly go behind him
    on the stairs. He should jump. When he lands do []/\[][][][]. If he jumps
    again, keep repeating till his head falls. Smack the head with [][]/\/\/\.
    Repeat till he's cooked and ready to serve.
    
    Alternate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (email)
    "With my technique, this battle can end really quick. Make sure when you enter
    this battle, you have Explosive arrows and Incendirary Shurikens. The weapon of
    choice here is the Dragon Sword. As soon as the battle starts, run to the side
    Paz Zuu is on and get behind him (trust me). If you happen to be in the right
    spot once behind him, when Paz Zuu jumps up and down, you won't take damage.
    While he is jumping up and down, this is the perfect time to use a combo.
    Everytime Paz Zuu lands on the ground,  jump  in the air and use the Izuna Drop
    combo (although since this is a boss,you finish the combo with a different move)
    but this does take out a nice amount of his health. Repeat this same process
    EVERYTIME Paz Zuu is on the side when the battle first started  (I believe it's
    where the steps are). At some point Paz Zuu will become weak and stick his head
    down for you to attack. When this happens, Equip your Vigorian Flails and Art
    of the Fire Wheels. Get next to his head,use the Fire wheels and do the combo :
    Forward+Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle) this will do great amounts of
    damage. And if Paz Zuu happens to fly up to his little hiding spot (where you
    can't reach him) simply take out the Explosive arrows and exploding shurikens
    and fire a few at him to do extra damage. Using these techniques, you can beat
    him in less than 4 minutes, sometimes 3.

    Ahhh. The son of a bitch who burned your village down. He's back but with a cool
    weapon. The kitetsu? WTF happened to the Dark Dragon Blade. Anyway, he's much 
    easier this time around. He has a shockwave attack just jump to dodge it. A 
    flamethrower, just roll away. A 5 hit combo, keep blocking and rolling, if he 
    gets you, you're toast. And a sword throw, just block. Also a grab move which 
    sucks your life, if you get caught by it mash []. And lastly, his rush. You want
    him to do his rush so you can dodge and knock some sick damage to him. Retaliate
    with [][]/\/\/\. He should lose a 1/5 or 1/6th of his life. Just keep repeating 
    and you'll get his weapon. Hope we don't see him again.

    bad) (e-mail)
    
    "Doku: (Second Encounter) From my experience, never wait for Doku to charge
    before attacking, that's way to risky. An easier method is to make sure you
    have the Dabilahro and it is upgraded to level 3. Also make sure you have the
    Armlet of Celerity. Here's how you kill Doku real quick: Equip the Armlet of
    Celerity and Dabilahro, Stand away from him (about the distance where Doku is
    able to throw his sword at you) and simply stand there while charging the
    Dabilahro. As soon as you see Doku throw his sword, release the charge button,
    you will jump over the sword (without taking damage) and take a nice chunk out
    of his health. The same technique applies when Doku blows his Fire breath,
    while he's doing it, charge up the Dabilahro and release. This same technique 
    can be used again when Doku stabs the ground with his sword, jump over his
    ground wave after you have charged up the Dabilahro. So basically you can use
    the same technique on Doku for 3 of his attacks. You might not get it the
    first try but believe me, IT WORKS! and it Takes him down QUICK!"

    move where he summons ice under you and hit you. Just keep rolling. He can grab
    you when he puts both his arms back. Roll cause it does hurt. His punches and 
    walk are the same thing basically except the punches have a longer range. Just 
    roll to dodge. To hit him, you can use the flying swallow on his back after he 
    does a move or you can hit him with [][]/\/\/\. Either way works fine. Repeat

    platform and stay in the left top corner. Smaugan has a chomp move that really 
    hurts but you're untouchable by it here. He has a flame attack where he flaps 
    his wings and a fire blasts through. You'll need timing to dodge it. And lastly,
    he has a move where he breathes fire horizontally. Just jump. When you SEE him 
    leaning his head in, hold /\ till you're red and let go. It should hurt him like
    hell. Just keep waiting for the lean in and Ultimate Technique him. Also if you

    moves as Alma except the grab (thank GOD) but she has different grab that 
    doesn't work as well. When she's on her legs, she can rush at you or throw pink 
    balls at you. You want her to rush so you can flying swallow when she's done 
    with it. If you hit, she'll be stunned like Alma. BUT, don't do []/\[][][][]. 
    Instead, do [][][]/\ or you can Gleaming Blade her (360 degrees, hold /\). That

    Great. Now we gotta battle him again. He's easier this time around. He has the

    you, you can escape by mashing buttons. The other one is unavoidable when you 
    get caught. All you gotta do is just keep on [][]/\/\/\ him. He can't block 
    them all. Now prepared to become something. Another strategy you can use is to
    back up, dodge his swords and grab, and wait for him to cross his arms. then you
    can charge a gleaming blade (for just 2 secs) and it'll hurt a lot. Haven't
    tried but people say its good.

    all times and when he's open, Izuna Drop him. When he's on the floor, you can't
    hit him, but you can back up and charge a Ultimate Technique. Unleash it and hit
    him with Izuna Drop. Best thing to do is just keep Izuna Dropping him. When he 
    does ninpo, back off QUICK and time when the fireball will come with precision 
    or you will pay. Just be careful of ninpo since when you're near him when he

    oddest attack of all, she swings onto a pole outside of the arena, keeps 
    swinging, and jumps off at a very difficult thing to dodge. When she's doing the
    laser, roll away quickly. When she's swinging, roll backwards and wait for her 
    to jump off and AS SOON as she's going to land, roll. It's very hard to do but
    once you do, you'll finally dodge the nasty attack. If you manage to dodge it,
    immediately [][][]/\ her. When she charges at you, roll and [][][]/\. After she
