    No More Heroes is the latest release from SUDA51's Grasshopper Manufacture.
    And, oh man, is it the signature SUDA51 release we have all been waiting for. 
    No More Heroes is packed to the brim with excessive gore, obscenities, and 
    a multitude of pop culture references. 
    
    Fans of Killer7 and any of SUDA51's other works should definitely give No More 
    Heroes a try. 
    
    In this guide, you'll find a walkthrough, along with various appendices that
    detail the many aspects of the game. I hope you find it helpful!

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

                 [Q] What's the quickest way to gain money?
    
                 [A] Free Fight missions are excellent for money if you can defeat
                     them with a fairly high success rate. As for assassination
                     missions, Gig 7, Gig 17, and Gig 18 are excellent for money.
    
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
                 [Q] How do you perform a jumping slash attack?
    
                 [A] The jumping slash attack can be executed once you learn the
                     technique, Memory of Demon, from Lovikov at Gold Town. To use
                     it, just shake the Nunchuk immediately before you press the
                     A Button to slash. You will know that you've done it right 
                     when Travis dashes/jumps to the enemy and slashes. 
    
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
                 [Q] How do you perform a darkstep?
    
                 [A] A darkstep is a technique which can be used after having
                     successfully blocked an enemy attack. It does take a few
                     tries to completely the hang of, but once you do, it becomes
                     easy to pull off. 
    
                     As soon as Travis manages to block an enemy attack, move the
                     control stick to the left or right (this will determine the
                     direction you move in). If you pull it off, the screen will
                     darken and time will slow down, allowing you to slash the
                     target with impunity for a few seconds. 
    
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
                 [Q] Can you explain the connections between Job Center missions,
                     K-Entertainment missions, and Free Fight missions?
    
                 [A] Your assassin ranking determines what Job Center missions are
                     available to you, first of all. When you're rank 10, only
                     one Job Center mission will be available. As you move up,
                     you'll gain one new job for every rank you acquire. 
    
                     In order to unlock K-Entertainment missions, you must get
                     bronze or silver rankings in the Job Center missions. For
                     certain "three-part" assassin missions, getting a gold 
                     ranking in a Job Center mission is required to unlock all
                     tiers. 
    
                     And as for Free Fight missions, they are unlocked by
                     attaining gold rankings in Job Center missions. 
    
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
                 [Q] Can you describe the location of a specific Lovikov Ball in
                     more detail?
    
                 [A] The descriptions you find in the "Lovikov Ball Locations" are
                     general locations of each Lovikov Ball. You're expected to
                     use the mini-map to pinpoint each ball, which is marked by an
                     orange dot. 
    
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
                 [Q] Why did a Free Fight mission disappear after I failed it?
    
                 [A] Don't worry. Free Fight missions have a tendency to seemingly
                     appear again at random. 
    
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
                 [Q] Why is the "View True Ending" option not appearing?
    
                 [A] It will only appear after you have acquired all three katanas
                     from Dr. Naomi.

    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
    Santa Destroy is a rather boring town situated somewhere in California. 
    Although much of the town has no function other than to look pretty, there are 
    a few locales of interest. 
    
         Travis' Room ~
         ============
              Travis' Room is located on the upper floor of the No More Heroes
              Motel. On the map, it's marked with a house icon. There are two 
              rooms, each with distinct features. 
     
              Bedroom -
              - Closet: Here is your stockpile of the clothes that Travis acquired 
                 over the course of the game. Use the closet to change clothes 
                 whenever you feel like it. 
              - Drawer: Beam katanas are stored here. Use the drawers to switch
                 weapons.  
              - Map: It's just as its name implies. The map is a map of Santa
                 Destroy. 
              - Telephone: Check your messages about video rentals, ranking
                 battles, and other points of interest here. 
    
              Living Room -
              - Toilet: "Save" your game. 
              - TV: Watch any videos you've picked up from the video store or
                 play video games. 
              - Fridge: Replenishes your health.
              - Cards: All of the trading cards you've acquired through the game
                 will be readily accessible. 
              - Exit: Self-explanatory... yes.
    
         Area 51 ~
         =======
              This is the clothing store (apparently the only clothing store in
              the entire town). Here, you can purchase various articles of
              clothing to fill Travis' closet. It's marked with a T-shirt icon on
              the map. 
    
         Beef Head ~
         =========
              The video store is run by Travis' friend, Bishop. Various videos
              can be rented. The wrestling videos can teach Travis new wrestling
              moves. Beef Head is also Travis' stop for pornography, as the 
              messages on his answering machine show. On the map, Beef Head is
              marked by a bull's horn icon. 
    
         The Office of Thunder Dragon ~
         ============================
              This is the office of Travis' mentor, Thunder Ryu. This is where you
              go to buff up and increase speed, strength, and vitality. Exercises
              are easily performed using the Wiimote and Nunchuks. Each successive
              exercise will cost more money than the previous one. Thunder Ryu's
              office is marked by a yellow kanji symbol on the map. 
    
         Naomi's Laboratory ~
         ==================
              Professor Naomi is your stop for new beam katanas and beam katana
              upgrades. Bring certain pieces to her and she'll craft new katanas
              for you. More information on the topic can be found in the 'Upgrades'
              section of this guide. On the map, Naomi's Laboratory is marked with
              a beam katana icon. 
    
         Gold Town ~
         =========
              In Gold Town, you'll come across a drunken Russian guy by the name
              of Lovikov. Bring him seven Lovikov Balls and he'll teach you a new
              technique every time. Lovikov Balls can be found throughout Santa
              Destroy in various locations. Consult the 'Lovikov Ball Location'
              section for the ball locations and the 'Lovikov's Techniques' 
              section for the techniques available to you. On the map, Gold Town
              is marked with a mug of beer. 
    
         Job Center ~
         ==========
              The Job Center is where you pick up various chump tasks such as 
              mowing lawns and filling up cars at a gas station. The pay is pretty
              horrid, so spring for K-Entertainment jobs and Free Fight missions
              for money instead. However, note that in order to unlock more 
              assassin and Free Fight missions, you'll first need to rank 
              favorably in the Job Center missions. A full listing of each task
              along with a description can be found in the 'Job Center Missions'
              section of the guide. On the map, the Job Center is marked with a
              stick figure running. 
    
         K-Entertainment ~
         ===============
              K-Entertainment is an assassin agency masquerading as an advertising
              organization. Here, you'll be allowed to take on "gigs" that usually
              involve you killing numerous targets within a time limit. The pay is
              often quite high. A full listing of each gig along with strategies
              and descriptions can be found in the 'K-Entertainment Missions' 
              section of the guide. On the map, K-Entertainment is marked with a
              skull icon. 
    
         ATM ~
         ===
              When you've attained enough money to fight the next ranked battle,
              you can deposit the sum at the ATM. On the map, the ATM is marked 
              by a dollar sign icon.

                 3.4. Battle Techniques                                     [3400]
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
         Lock On and Guard ~
         =================
              Simply press the Z Button to lock on to the nearest enemy. Doing so
              will enable auto guard, which will block all basic attacks. Charged
              attacks can not be blocked no matter what. 
    
         Basic Slash and Combo ~
         =====================
              These are simple enough to pull off. Simply press the A Button to
              execute a basic slash. These attacks can be linked into combos by
              repeatedly pressing the A Button. However, be aware that the time
              in-between strikes leaves Travis vulnerable to attack. 
    
              Basic slashes can be dealt in either a high or low stance. Stance is
              determined by the direction you're pointing your Wiimote. High 
              stance is achieved by pointing the Wiimote upward and low stance is
              achieved by obviously pointing the Wiimote downward.
    
              Enemies can block either high or low but they cannot block both at
              once. Therefore, if you find that most of your slashes are being
              negated, switch stances to attack the undefended part. 
    
         Death Blow ~
         ==========
              When you've lowered an opponent's health, Travis will enter his
              death blow mode, which allows you to kill an opponent (or seriously
              wound) by swinging the Wiimote in the specified direction. 
    
              To increase the power and range of a death blow, swing the Wiimote
              in the specified direction and then shake it. You'll know that 
              you've pulled it off successfully when triangles appear on the 
              screen. 
    
              After pulling off a successful death blow, slots will appear at the
              bottom of the screen. Should you manage to line up three items, 
              Travis will enter his Dark Side Mode. Listed below are all the 
              possible combinations:
    
              Strawberry on the Shortcake (3 Grasshoppers)
              - This mode will make Travis run extremely fast. Slashing an enemy
                will automatically bring up a death blow icon with the arrow
                spinning in all directions. Simply move your Wiimote in any 
                direction to deal a death blow. In essence, Strawberry on the
                Shortcake makes it so that every strike is a death blow. 
    
              Blueberry Cheese Brownie (Three Bells)
              - When it's activated, a targeting reticle will appear on the 
                screen. Move it using the control stick and press the A Button to
                unleash an energy wave that deals heavy damage to distant enemies.
                
              Cranberry Chocolate Sundae (Three BARs)
              - The screen will turn monochrome. When you approach an enemy, a
                button will appear on-screen. Press whatever button pops up and
                Travis will completely brutalize the selected enemy. If you miss
                the correct button, Travis won't do anything. Note that even 
                though the surroundings turn black and white, the spilled blood 
                remains red. What an awesome effect!
    
              Anarchy in the Galaxy (Three 7s)
              - Attaining Anarchy in the Galaxy doesn't have an immediate effect.
                Rather, one "7" icon will be added to your stock in the lower-
                right hand corner of the HUD. Press the - Button to activate an
                enormous explosion that eliminates all non-boss enemies in the
                vicinity. A total of three Anarchy in the Galaxy stocks can be
                held at once. 
    
              Cherry (Three Cherries)
              - The movement of enemies will be slowed, allowing you to hit them
                with blazing speed. This mode is useful as an offensive measure 
                and a defensive measure as well because it allows you to slip away 
                from danger. 
    
         Charged Slash ~
         =============
              A powerful charged slash can be executed by pressing and holding the
              A Button. Travis will slice once and then hold his beam katana as it
              charges up. The A Button can be released at any time to unleash the
              charged slash. Compared to a regular slash, this attack deals much 
              more damage over a greater area. Charged slashes are extremely 
              useful against large mobs of enemies. However, because Travis is
              vulnerable while charging up, it isn't recommended that you attempt
              this in the middle of a fight. 
    
         Weapon Clash ~
         ============
              Every once in a while, Travis will strike an enemy just as he is
              about to hit Travis. The subsequent clatter results in a weapon
              clash. As soon as you see the Wiimote on-screen, trace the circle
              as rapidly as you can. Be sure you're moving the Wiimote in the
              right direction too! If Travis is successful, the enemy will be
              stunned momentarily, allowing plenty of time to unleash a death
              blow. If you're unsuccessful, Travis will be pushed back and stunned
              for a short period of time. 
           
         Beat Attack ~
         ===========
              Beat attacks can be executed by pressing the B Button. The function
              of this move is not to deal damage to an enemy, rather to potentially
              stun an enemy to lead up to a grab. Many regular enemies can be
              stunned quite easily, whereas boss characters are much harder to
              effectively stun. Beat attacks have a higher chance of stunning when
              you attack from the back or when you attack after dodging and
              evading an enemy attack. 
    
         Charged Beat Attack ~
         ===================
              Press and hold the B Button to charge up a charged beat attack.
              These have a higher chance of stunning a target than a typical beat
              attack. However, charging an attack leaves Travis vulnerable to 
              enemy attacks. 
    
         Emergency Evade ~
         ===============
              While locked on to an enemy, press left, right, or down on the
              Control Pad to perform a roll in the selected direction. While
              rolling, Travis will be impervious to all attacks. Used properly, 
              emergency evades can confuse enemies and create openings for you to
              attack. 
    
              If you time it correctly, the screen will darken and the enemy's
              movement will slow. This technique is often referred to as the
              darkstep. 
    
         Circling Around ~
         ===============
              Circling around is the easiest way to reach an enemy's unguarded 
              backside. As soon as you block an attack, press either left or right 
              on the Control Pad to swiftly circle around the enemy. 
    
         Grab and Throw ~
         ==============
              Once an enemy is successfully stunned via beat attacks, Travis can
              walk up to the stunned enemy and perform a grab. Do this by pressing
              the B Button when the prompt shows up at the bottom of the screen.
              Having achieved that, swing the Wiimote and Nunchuk simultaneously
              in the indicated directions on-screen to perform a throw. Throws
              deals huge amounts of damage to regular enemies and bosses alike.
    
         Down Attack ~
         ===========
              Press the A Button when Travis is near a downed enemy (after having
              performed a throw) to finish him off.
    
         Counter ~
         =======
              This is a little-known technique that is incredibly powerful. To
              execute it, just perform a block JUST as an enemy is striking you.
              As soon as you block the attack, hit the A Button and Travis will
              unleash an unblockable attack that kills almost any enemy in a 
              single hit. You'll know you've done it right when Travis glows 
              white and the katana sparks.

    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
    As Travis Touchdown, walk down the side of the motel to the staircase. You'll
    automatically grab hold of your bike, the Schpeltiger (wow what a name). At
    this point, the whole introductory sequence will pop up. You can skip it, but
    I strongly suggest you watch it just because it's one of the most kickass
    openings you'll ever see in your life. Fo' serious.
    
                                           ---
    
    Travis will arrive at the Townsend Residence (also known as the Death Metal
    Mansion) with an impressive entrance. This scene is a nice indication at the 
    amount of bloodspilling you'll be doing in a little bit. After cutting through 
    the door (and the guard, of course), you'll be offered a tutorial, detailing 
    the basics of combat. If you've never played No More Heroes before, I strongly 
    suggest you at least try it. Many of the techniques detailed in this 
    walkthrough require prior knowledge of the controls and methods of pulling 
    them off. 
    
    At the entrance, two guards will immediately come running down the staircase.
    Practice your beam katana techniques on their pathetic heads. Lock on to the
    first one and cut him down. Then, work on taking down the other one any way 
    you prefer. Following their deaths, the door at the top of the staircase will
    open. Make your way up there and proceed down the hall to a bedroom. 
    Immediately lock on to the nearest guard and begin slicing away at him. The
    enemies you'll face here aren't particularly tough to kill individually. It's
    their large numbers that may cause some problems for you. As long as you are
    quick and efficient, they should not even be able to land a hit on you. 
    
    I'd suggest charging up for a slash and releasing it in the middle of the 
    pack. That way, you can effectively eliminate a good number of the guards with
    a single stroke. Once the guards are down for the count, hit the purple chest
    for a health pickup. The door to the next hallway will subsequently open. At
    the red corridor, head all the way down to the left to find a chest containing
    money. Now, go in the opposite direction and ascend the staircase at the end.
    
    At the end of the corridor is a blue chest containing a battery powerup. Hit
    it to recharge your beam katana (although you probably don't really need it).
    Turn around and pull a right into the other corridor. At the end is a red 
    chest with Trading Card No.001 (collecting these cards is completely optional,
    though doing so will unlock some cool extras). Turn around and slip into the
    next room. 
    
    As you enter, the doors will close behind you. After a second, a whole mob of
    guards will appear. As they approach, charge your katana for a charged attack
    and let it loose as the mob gets close. The resulting strike should knock away
    a majority of the group, leaving a few for you to target and kill. Then, as
    the other guards get up, target the remaining enemies. Don't let your guard
    down even when you think you've killed all of the guards - more and more will
    appear. You'll know that you eliminated all of the enemies when the doors open
    up again. 
    
    Before you leave, smash the red chest in the middle for Trading Card No.002.
    The purple chest holds some pizza you can eat to replenish health. Now, leave
    the study through the right door and pull a right for a money chest. Then,
    make your way back to the entrance room. You'll encounter a few guards, but 
    they should not pose much of a threat to you with their puny razors and 
    katanas. As you pass by the bedroom, the door underneath the main staircase 
    will open. Return to the entrance room and head down that way. 
    
    Kill the first four enemies in this corridor. Upon doing so, a guard equipped
    with a beam katana of his own will appear at the end of the hall. Defeating
    him isn't too tough. Just block his attacks and wait for an opening. His 
    lunges are predictable enough to easily find an opportunity to strike. Mix in
    beat attacks and you might be able to stun him long enough for a grab attack.
    This is most easily achieved by dodging his attacks and then slipping behind
    him (a '?' will appear over his head, signifying his confusion). When he's on
    the ground, you can just impale him right there. 
    
    Following his defeat, an exclamation point will appear over the next door. 
    Been waiting for that all-out slashfest? This next room will be sure to 
    satisfy your bloodlust. Before you enter, charge up your beam katana for the
    coming fight. Apart from the pillars inside, there's still plenty of room to
    maneuver and have a little "fun" with the various guards. Stay locked on to
    your enemies to prevent anyone from landing a hit on you. After the first 
    batch of goons, a few more waves will appear. Keep slashing until the next
    door opens. Before you leave, smash the chests along the walls. There's a 
    health and battery pickup. The other chest holds Trading Card No.003. Lastly,
    the final chest holds money. 
    
    Make your way to the exit and engage the katana-wielding guard. Slice him 
    apart and head outside. Turn left first and snag Trading Card No.004. Then,
    turn around and begin attacking the armed guards along the path. Keep the Z 
    Button pressed to block any bullets they shoot at you. They'll attempt to run
    away as you get close - cut them down before they can escape. At the end of
    the stone pathway will be another exclamation point, leading into the 
    cathedral. 
    
    You won't encounter any enemies from here until the boss fight so don't be
    afraid to let your guard down. As you proceed, Silvia will call you on your
    cell phone with nothing really important to say (I admit, the whole Wiimote
    cell phone scheme is pretty cool). At the end of the path is a save point,
    a new wrestling move (check out the mask on the ground), a health pickup,
    a battery pickup, and a chest containing Trading Card No.005. The exclamation
    point will bring you to Death Metal. 
    
         Death Metal ~
         ===========
              Don't let his huge body and gigantic sword intimidate you. If you
              have at least some basic knowledge of blocking and striking, this
              fight should be no problem. 
    
              Death Metal begins with a few sword combos. Either dodge them or
              block them and wait for an opening in his attacks. Try to avoid 
              blocking every single one of his lunges because they'll drain your
              katana battery in no time. Dodge left or right whenever he attacks
              to pop up behind him. From this position, you can easily slice his
              undefended back or hit him with a beat attack. Getting him dazed is
              not a hard task to accomplish. Grabs will do enormous amounts of
              damage to him. Since he's so vulnerable, abuse them as much as you
              want. 
    
              Once you bring down about half of his health bar, he'll split up
              into three separate bodies. The two with full health bars are his
              weaker images. They can still damage you significantly though! Keep
              your guard up and try to isolate one of the bodies instead of taking
              them all on at once. Once you manage to do so, wait for an opening
              and strike away. The lesser bodies don't have much health and are
              easily killed with a few good hits. Focus on killing the two before 
              returning to Death Metal. 
    
              The rest of the battle is not too difficult. Death Metal will pick 
              up a new whirlwind attack that's still easily blocked and avoided. 
              Just keep up what you were doing before until you defeat him. 
    
    After Death Metal's rather gruesome death, snag the health powerup inside the
    chest nearby. Then, step into the exclamation point to meet with Silvia. 
    Congratulations, you are now ranked 10. 
    
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
                 4.2. Rank 9                                                [4200]
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
    At last, you get a chance to relax in your motel room for a bit. After saving
    your game, a call from Silvia will tell you to get your ass outside. Feel free
    to explore your room for a bit - you're in no rush. 
    
    Once you're outside, step into Silvia's car and she'll fill you in on the
    whole process of gaining ranks. Your next target is Dr. Peace, a detective
    with influences in the black market. However, you'll need to pay an entry fee
    of LB$150000. You'll be dropped (kicked) off at K-Entertainment, an 
    organization of assassins. Enter the building and you'll be told off because
    you don't have the experience. Well, there's always the Job Center. 
    
    You can go to the Job Center (marked by a pink icon with a dude running) 
    immediately and earn the cash you need to enter. 
    
    After depositing the cash, return to your motel and an message on the
    answering machine will direct you to Destroy Stadium. Get on your Schpeltiger
    and make your way to Destroy Stadium, located at the southwest corner of town.
    Find the big roman numeral "IX" and prepare yourself for the next ranked 
    fight. 
    
                                           ---
    
    The regular enemies here are armed with baseball bats, axes, and baseballs. 
    Occasionally, they'll attempt to tackle you. You'll know when they're about to
    do that when they glow red. Move into the room and begin slashing right away. 
    As you enter, move down to the left, where an enemy with a beam katana is 
    waiting. Before provoking him, kill the other goons in the immediate vicinity. 
    Do your best to avoid his unavoidable charged attack, which will be indicated 
    when he glows red. Evade around his strikes and get behind him for an 
    opportunity to strike. Finish him off and break open the chests for health, 
    battery, and Trading Card No.006. 
    
    Now, begin moving in the opposite direction. You'll encounter a few more 
    enemies on this side of the hallway. Plow through them any way you see fit and
    the gate at the top of the ramp will open. Make your way up there and smash 
    the chest on the right for some money. As for the enemies in the room, execute
    a charged slash to clear away most of them. Mop up the rest and engage the 
    goon with the beam katana near the gate. At this point, you should be able to
    fight these tougher enemies with ease. Evading his attacks is the most 
    important thing to keep in mind. 
    
    Go through the exclamation point and past the gate. In this long corridor, you
    will encounter a line of enemies. The idea is to use your beam katana as a bat
    and return the pitch so it cuts right through the entire line of enemies. Use
    your Wiimote as a bat (in a similar fashion to Wii Sports baseball) and return
    the pitches as they come. You'll be given three opportunities to hit the ball
    before the enemies get fed up and engage you the old-fashioned way. If you
    aren't successful, you'll just have to kill the remaining enemies to unlock
    the next gate. 
    
    Snag the health and battery pickup from the first two chests down the hallway.
    The last two chests hold money. Go past the gate and smash the chest on the
    left for Trading Card No.007 and then eliminate the goons in the room. Upon
    doing so, a gate at the top of the ramp will open. Smash the blue chest for a
    battery and proceed past the exclamation point at the top of the ramp. 
    
    This next room has a ton of enemies. Execute a charged slash and perform a few
    death blows. Cross your fingers for a dark side mode to activate to make the
    menial task of plowing through these enemies easier. The key thing to remember
    is to block, evade, and block some more. When there are this many enemies, you
    could eat a few hits if you open yourself up to perform long-winded combo 
    attacks. After clearing the room, another exclamation point will appear at the
    end of the path. 
    
    Here we are with the batting game again. It's the same process as before; use
    your beam katana as a bat and hit the ball back through the line of enemies.
    Succeed and you won't have to deal with killing any of them. Be sure to smash
    the first chest for some money and the second chest for Trading Card No.008.
    The last two chests contain a battery pickup and a health pickup. The room
    beyond the gate is also full of enemies. Do what you do best and clear the
    enemy presence from the room. Then, smash the chest for Trading Card No.009.
    
    Step into the exclamation point at the elevator doors to find yourself in a
    narrow corridor. Combat is a bit tougher here because of the smaller space.
    Battle your way through the first few enemies and get up the battery and
    health pickups from the chests. At the end of the corridor is a single enemy
    wielding a beam katana. As you approach him though, two more beam katana-
    wielding goons will hop out of the bathrooms. 
    
    Facing two of these enemies is much tougher than just going one-on-one.
    Quickly lock on to the nearest one and slash and beat attack him until he's
    dizzy. Take the opportunity to grab him to take down a good portion of his
    health. Continue to focus on that same enemy and repeat the process until he 
    dies. At the same time, avoid the other enemy by blocking and stepping out of 
    the way when he attempts a charged attack. When it's just one-on-one again,
    use the tried and true strategy of evading and attacking to bring him down
    with ease. All that remains is the last beam katana-wielding enemy at the end
    of the hallway. Kill him and take Trading Card No.010 from the nearby chest.
    
    As you approach the final hallway, Silvia will give you a call on your cell
    phone to indicate that you're just about at Dr. Peace. You know the drill.
    Save your game, learn a new wrestling move (in this case, it's the Reverse
    Armsault), and grab the battery and health pickup. Stepping into the 
    exclamation point at the end will bring you to Dr. Peace at last. 
    
         Dr. Peace ~
         =========
              Dr. Peace, with his double revolvers, is a ranged attacker. In order
              to even challenge him, you'll need to get up close and personal. 
              Staying close won't be easy either unless you're quick enough to
              evade his bullets. 
    
              At the start, you will need to run your way up to the gun-toting
              Dr. Peace. Keep your Z Button pressed in case any bullets come
              sailing your way. As soon as the first indication appears (usually
              in the form of bullet trails in the air), break off to the left or
              right. Make sure you're still locked on Dr. Peace, so you'll still
              move toward him even while evading his bullets. When you get up
              close enough, wait for him to reload and then move in for the 
              strike. You should be able to get a few hits in before he knocks you
              back. 
    
              Be wary of his charged attack. You can tell he's about to use it 
              when he begins to glow red. As soon as this sign emerges, put some
              distance between yourself and the boss (around 10 feet) and circle
              around him. When he fires, he's guaranteed to miss you if you're
              moving to the side. 
    
              This is primarily a battle of endurance. Break off and block when he
              begins to fire and move in and attack when he reloads. If possible,
              put him in a daze with a few beat attacks from the back and perform
              a few grabs to take off a good chunk of health. Also try to avoid
              getting yourself in a weapon clash with him; should you lose the
              clash, he'll get a chance to riddle your body with bullets and 
              effectively push you a good distance back. 
    
    Once the battle is over, smash the nearby chest for a health powerup. Step 
    into the exclamation point and Silvia will award you with the rank 9 spot. 
    
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
                 4.3. Rank 8                                                [4300]
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
    Now that you're ranked 8, a number of new locations will open up to you. The
    next ranked fight costs LB$200000. Even if you have the money, I'd strongly
    suggest you pay Naomi a visit to purchase the new Tsubaki beam katana model.
    
    There's a new part-time job available at the Job Center as well. Gold rank it
    to unlock a few more K-Entertainment gigs, along with a Free Fight mission.
    Also note that you can now do some exercises (at a fee, of course) at Thunder 
    Ryu's. 
    
    When you're ready, deposit the money in the ATM for the next fight. Return to
    your motel room and Silvia will give you a call, informing you that the next
    ranked fight is at the Santa Destroy High School. 
    
                                           ---
    
    Some things never change. Looks like the school bullies are out to get you as
    always. Show them a little something called your beam katana and slice up the
    enemies in front of the school's door. Then, head to the right and kill the
    few enemies stationed here as well. A chest nearby contains Trading Card No.
    011. Return to the front and head the other way down the stone path. There are
    a few more enemies a little bit further up. Once they're dead, an exclamation
    point will appear above the main entrance. Go over there and enter the school.
    
    Inside, turn right at the hallway to find Trading Card No.012 inside a chest.
    Flip around and kill the various hooligans here. At the end of the corridor, a
    goon with a torch will jump out. Avoid getting hit by the torch because you'll
    be set on fire. Luckily, there's a fire extinguisher at the corner in case you
    do. For the remainder of this course, fire extinguishers will be strewn about
    in various locations for you to run to should you be set on fire. 
    
    Advance down the light-filled hallway and turn right. Deal with any torch-
    bearing enemies here as well. Even though you have extinguishers nearby, try
    to avoid getting set on fire because it does take a good chunk out of your 
    health. Anyway, at the end of this hallway, turn left (the dark room on the
    right leads to a fire extinguisher) through another light-filled hall. At the
    end, you'll find another exclamation point. Step through the door. 
    
    Here, an enemy will raise his torch up to activate the school's sprinkler 
    system. If you didn't already know, electricity doesn't mix too well with
    electronics. And you can't much more electric than Travis' beam katana. As
    soon as you regain control, you'll notice that your beam katana won't be able
    to function anymore. Quickly run down the linear hallway past the various 
    goons here and there until you reach the end. Duck into the maintenance room
    and hit the power to stop the sprinklers from raining death. Grab the battery
    pickup and backtrack down the same hallway. 
    
    The enemies are still here, so you'll have to deal with them as they appear.
    Luckily, the sprinklers put out their torches. At the end of the hall, you
    will encounter a small mob of about four enemies. Execute a charged slash to
    put them in their places and step through the open door marked with an 
    exclamation point. 
    
    Oh no, it's gym class all over again! If you have any 'Anarchy in the Galaxy'
    salvos, now would be a great opportunity to use it. Otherwise, just slash
    away. Should the enemies manage to overwhelm you, run to a corner and charge
    up your beam katana for a charged slash. If you maintain your guard, you 
    should have little trouble killing them. The final two enemies to appear will
    both wield beam katanas. Isolate the one closest to you and kill him as 
    quickly as possible. If you can, execute a grab to put him on the ground long
    enough for you to finish him off. Then, focus on the other one. 
    
    After the battle, collect the health and battery pickups at the far corners of
    the gymnasium. Then, exit through the open blue door at the other end. On your
    left will be a chest containing Trading Card No.014. Go to the staircase at 
    the end and check underneath it to find Trading Card No.013. Afterwards, climb
    the steps and listen to Silvia give you some more of her signature pep talk on
    the cell phone. At the end of this hall is another chest with Trading Card No.
    015. Break it open and then move to the end of the next hall, where you'll 
    find a new wrestling move, a health pickup, and a save point (a.k.a. potty).
    When you're ready, step into the exclamation point. 
    
         Shinobu ~
         =======
              Emergency evades will prove to be extremely useful in this battle.
              Shinobu makes up for her below-average vitality with lightning speed
              and unpredictable attacks. This battle will be mostly a defensive
              effort on your part.
    
              When the battle begins, you'll find Shinobu behind you. Quickly lock
              on to her and let her make the first move. Block or evade her 
              strikes and quickly look for an opening to counterattack. Don't
              leave yourself vulnerable by stringing up long combos though; she
              will likely slip away and attack you from another angle. The key is
              to only attack the instant she finishes a move. This is the only
              time she'll be vulnerable to attack. 
    
              Shinobu has a number of different charged moves. Some of them are
              tougher to dodge than others. One of them will always appear after
              she performs a flip toward you. This one is very difficult to avoid
              if you aren't expecting it because she'll execute as soon as she
              leaves her flip. Therefore, you'll have to look for the tell-tale
              somersault instead and slip out of the way. 
    
              Sonic Sword is her ranged charged attack. She rarely uses this early
              in the battle (and still seems to hesitate at the end) unless you're
              far away. However, it's quite a devastating attack that can not be
              evaded. Avoid it by stepping off to the right or left as quickly as
              possible. Near the end of the battle, she'll fire off multiple
              Sonic Swords. If you get hit by the first one, chances are the rest
              of the string will get you too. Do your best to avoid this attack at
              all costs. 
    
              Shinobu is nightmarish when her health gets extremely low. At that
              point, she can use a charged attack that can kill you instantly 
              should it connect. Watch when she sheathes her sword. This is your
              cue to run away backwards as far as possible. If you're quick 
              enough, she'll slash at nothing but air, leaving herself vulnerable
              to a counterattack. 
    
              Fight defensively. Always block, slide to the left or right, and hit
              her twice or thrice before quickly returning to a block. As for her
              charged attacks, just step away to avoid them. Shinobu will 
              definitely outspeed you, so don't attempt to overwhelm her with 
              A Button mashing. The battle can be quite frustrating, especially
              towards the end when you've brought down her health only to be
              killed by her instant-death move. 
    
    Following the battle, snag the health powerup and step into the exclamation 
    point to return to your motel room after a brief encounter with Silvia 
    Christel and her "cleaning" team.

                 4.4. Rank 7                                                [4400]

    An invoice on your fax machine will show the price of the next ranked battle
    to be LB$250000. Looks like you'll need to do a few more odd jobs to get that
    cash. While you're getting the money ready, consider checking out the newly
    opened Gold Town and Beef Head. I'd strongly suggest you get some Lovikov
    Balls for a few new techniques. The jumping slash and jump down attack are
    both recommended skills to learn because they'll make the coming fights much
    easier. 
    
    There are really plenty of upgrades to snag before you move on to the next 
    fight. Take your time to prepare yourself before jumping the gun. 
    
    When you're ready with LB$250000, head to the ATM and deposit the cash. Then,
    return to your motel. Silvia won't be able to tell you the location right 
    away, so attempt to exit the motel room to find a letter with the details on
    the coming fight. Head down to the subway and enter. 
    
                                           ---
    
    Wow, what a surprise. There's no enemies throwing themselves at your neck. Go
    down the hall and collect Trading Card No.016 at the corner. Then, step into
    the big exclamation point by the turnstiles to enter the subway itself. Make
    your way down the stairs into the subway. Hmm, for some reason, the subways 
    are completely empty... It's kinda creepy. Walk forward a little bit and snag 
    Trading Card No.017 near the exclamation point. Then, step into the marker 
    and get on the subway. 
    
    Now it's time for some killing. Move forward on to the next subway car and
    engage the single enemy here. The tight quarters will be slightly restrictive,
    but you should still have no trouble lopping his head off. Once he is dead, 
    move on to the next car and engage the two enemies here. Due to the tight 
    quarters, you'll want to keep your guard up because there isn't any room to
    evade. The next train car has a goon with a katana (no not a beam katana) and 
    the one following that car has two. Your strategy should not change against 
    these slightly more powerful units. 
    
    Beyond that is a car with an axe-wielding enemy. Take him down any way you see
    fit and go into the last train. In here are two regular enemies and one with a
    beam katana way back. Quickly perform a jumping slash (if you have learned it)
    to knock down one (or if you're lucky, two) of the goons to quickly create some
    breathing room. As for the beam katana wielder, keep your guard and be prepared
    to evade when he charges up. 
    
    Leave the subway train through the exclamation point at the end. When you 
    exit, turn right and smash the chest for Trading Card No.018. Once you have
    that, head up the steps. In here, inspect the corner for Trading Card No.019
    before stepping through the turnstiles. Leave the station to find yourself 
    outside of the Bear Hug Film Studio. Head down to the entrance and enter the
    large grey warehouse. Let the bloodshed begin again!
    
    There are a large number of enemies in this building, but most of them will
    not attack you until you approach them. Engage the first group that approaches
    and kill them as efficiently as you can. To avoid getting knocked around, use
    your evasive techniques to find openings. As always, keep your guard up when
    not attacking. After the first group has been eliminated, move on to the end
    of the building and attack the three enemies here. The ones wielding stop
    signs (how creative) have a slightly longer range than the other enemies. 
    
    Go up the stairs nearby to find three enemies with pistols. Either wait until
    they reload or perform a jumping slash to knock them off their feet. When you
    manage to get close to these enemies, killing them will be easy because they
    have no exceptional means of blocking your attacks. Afterwards, the door 
    should open. If not, scan the building for any enemies you may have missed.
    
    Back outside, the door to the next warehouse will open for you. Before you go
    in though, check the left alcove to find a chest containing Trading Card No.
    020. After picking that up, enter the next warehouse and resume your killing
    spree. This floor is a bit tougher because there are goons with pistols mixed
    in with the regular melee units. Prioritize the shooters to make your life
    easier. Then, focus on clearing away the remaining enemies. Go upstairs and
    kill the enemies scattered on top as well. Then, return back to the ground
    floor and kill any remaining enemies inside. You will know that you've killed
    everyone when the door opens. 
    
    Once outside, turn right for a health pickup. Then, go into the third and 
    final warehouse. The first group consists of two enemies wielding beam katanas
    and a regular katana wielder. Use a jumping slash on one of them (preferably a
    beam katana wielder) to knock away one of them. Deal with the remaining 
    enemies any way you see fit. There are two more beam katana wielders at the 
    far end of the building and two more on top. Once you've cleared out the top
    floor, go back downstairs to find a stronger enemy with a dark purple beam
    katana. This enemy is capable of firing energy beams at you. Keep your guard
    up and dodge when he unleashes one. 
    
    Upon clearing out this warehouse, Silvia will give you a call. According to
    her math, there's a 120% chance that you won't survive the coming fight. Well,
    that's food for thought. Anyway, get the health and battery pickups, a new
    wrestling move (German Suplex), and save your game. When you're ready, step
    into the exclamation point to fight Destroyman!
    
         Destroyman ~
         ==========
              Mr. "Cosplay" has a number of attacks. Luckily for you, all of them
              are easily evaded if you know what you're doing. He will often open
              himself up to attack, making this battle fairly easy in comparison
              to the others. 
    
              The thing with Destroyman is that he yells out whatever attack he
              uses. Although by the time he says the second word (the first word
              is always Destroy!), he'd already be in the processing of executing
              the attack. Regardless, keep your ears open and be prepared to dodge
              or guard whenever you hear him yelling. 
    
              When he screams Destroy Spark, he'll extend his hand and shoot out 
              electricity from his fingers (like a Sith, ooh). If Travis happens 
              to get caught, he will be stunned momentarily. Destroy Beam is a 
              thin laser that's shot from his eyes. This move can easily be
              avoided by simply having your guard up. Destroy Cannon is a huge 
              projectile of energy that will toast you if you don't manage to 
              avoid it. Destroy Pound is a ground smash move that deals damage in
              a shockwave fashion. This attack is easily avoided by simply 
              stepping out of the shockwave range. Lastly, Destroy Buster is his
              most devastating attack. You can tell when he's about to use it
              because he'll stand up straight and tall and charge up his uh...
              crotch cannon (for lack of better term). This devastating beam will
              follow you for a few seconds before dissipating. When he uses
              Destroy Buster, put some distance between Travis and Destroyman and
              run side-to-side. 
    
              Sometime in the middle of the battle, Destroyman will get himself on
              top of a crate and lift himself up. From his high vantage point, he
              will spam Destroy Cannon attacks at you until you manage to bring
              him back down. Scattered around the room are various panels that 
              control a particular lift. You can either slash them yourself or let
              Destroyman accidentally hit them with his Destroy Cannon (stand in
              front of the panel and move away just before a Destroy Cannon shot is
              about to hit you). One of the panels will be correct, and once you 
              manage to bring him down, he'll stay down for good. 
    
              Overall, Destroyman is not too difficult to take down. The key here
              is to know his attacks and know how to avoid them. Apart from
              Destroy Beam, which can actually be blocked, you will need to get
              out of the range of his attacks by standing at a distance or using
              the emergency evade (rolling). When Travis is rolling, he is 
              impervious to all attacks. Abuse this ability whenever you see fit.
    
              The best times to attack Destroyman is when he's in the process of
              using Destroy Spark, after releasing a Destroy Pound, or after a
              Destroy Buster. At these points, he's most vulnerable to attack from
              the backside. At other times, take any opportunities you can to slip 
              behind him. Don't neglect to use beat attacks either. Destroyman is
              very vulnerable to beat attacks and wrestling moves for some reason.
              He has a ton of health, but you should really be able to take him 
              down without much trouble. Once you know his attacks, you could 
              easily defeat him without taking even a single hit. 
    
    After a spectacular death (on Destroyman's part, of course), rank 7 is yours. 
    Get the health powerup and step into the exclamation point to find Silvia yet
    again. She clearly enjoyed the show.

    The prices of ranked fights continually go up. The price tag on the next one
    is no exception at LB$300000. There's a new part time job available at the Job
    Center if you're interested. If you haven't already, get all of the Lovikov
    techniques. Upgrade your Tsubaki to its full potential as well. 
    
    When you're ready, deposit the LB$300000 at the ATM and return to the motel.
    Silvia will call, telling you to come to the beach. Do just that to find 
    yourself in what appears to be a secret military beachhead. Here we go!
    
                                           ---
    
    The first few enemies will come up right from the sand. These soldiers are
    equipped with pistols, so keep your guard up to prevent getting shot. It will
    be easiest to just use wrestling moves on the armed soldiers to avoid getting
    constantly shot at by the other gunner. After the first two are dead, two more
    will rise from the sand. Kill them any way you see fit, and an even larger
    force will emerge. If you need the health, there are plenty of purple chests
    strewn along the beachhead. However, don't waste one if you're missing 
    something like one HP point. You'll want to save some of them for the end of
    the battle. 
    
    The last two enemies that will appear in this segment consist of a soldier
    wielding a beam katana and a soldier with a pistol. Take out the ranged gunner
    first and then work on eliminating the other. The electrified barbed wire 
    fence will cease to zap you now. Before you go, be sure to pick up Trading 
    Card No.021 from the red chest at the south end of the beach. Use the battery
    and health chests if you need it and continue. 
    
    In this area, some more soldiers will emerge from the sand. Again, most of
    them are armed with pistols, so don't expect to run to you. Even if you do get
    shot up, there are plenty of health chests. Whenever you get a break, hit the
    chest near the lifeguard stand (marked '22') for Trading Card No.022. 
    
    Proceed into the next area, which is marked with a 'caution' sign. This 
    signifies that the next area is a minefield. See those yellow dots on your 
    mini-map? Those are the mines. Unfortunately, due to the horrible quality of
    your map, avoiding these mines will prove to be a tough task. Oddly enough,
    the enemies can set off the mines and hurt you in the process, yet walk away
    without taking damage at all. 
    
    Do your best to inch through the minefield while killing the enemies running
    around. Use grabs and throws to faciliate the process and minimize the amount
    of distance you walk. You'll know that you've killed all the enemies when the
    next barbed wire fence loses power. Before you cut through it, smash the 
    nearby money chests and health chests because you will not be able to come
    back. As soon as you cut the wire, Travis will step on a landmine, causing the
    terrain to crater. 
    
    In the next area, you'll encounter a new enemy, the submachine gunner. These
    enemies are equipped with machine guns that fire a barrage of bullets. You can
    block them, but doing so puts a huge strain on your beam katana's battery 
    life. It's better to just strafe back and forth to avoid the bullets. After
    you get in close, just suplex the enemy or slash him to bits. More sub-
    machine gunners will emerge one by one from the sand as you kill each one. 
    At the end of the wave, two submachine gunners will appear. This poses a 
    problem because while you're killing one of them, the other will likely be 
    firing at you. Quickly perform a beat attack (these enemies seem to be easily
    dazed) and throw one of them to eliminate that first enemy. Then, work on the 
    other one as you normally would. 
    
    Afterwards, the helicopter will drop off a submachine gunner with two pistol
    wielding soldiers. Focus on killing the submachine gunner first and then deal
    with the remaining two. Once the sand settles, smash the chest nearby for
    Trading Card No.023. Use any health and battery chests you need to. Then, cut 
    through the barbed wire fence and Travis will, again, step on a mine. Ouch. 
    
    The next area is a larger minefield than the previous one. Do your best to
    navigate through the field, using your mini-map as a guide. The two red chests
    here are both money chests. Once you pass the minefield, you'll have to
    contend with a dark beam katana wielder. Watch out when he charges up and be
    prepared to dodge the energy beam he sends at you. Get in close and kill him
    quickly. 
    
    Once he is dead, the helicopter will drop off three submachine gunners. As 
    soon as they land, strafe from left to right as you approach them. Have your
    guard up in case you get caught in the tracer of one of the submachine guns.
    When you get close, perform a jumping slash or beat attack on the enemy
    closest to you. Then, execute a down attack to get rid of one. Then, back off
    a few feet and strafe back and forth. When another opening presents itself,
    move in and repeat the process. Kill the last submachine gunner any way you
    see fit. 
    
    Smash the chest near the lifeguard stand for Trading Card No.024. Then, cut
    the barbed wire fence away. As Travis passes, he manages to evade one mine...
    but happens to land on another. Oh well, what's important is that the rank 6 
    is up ahead. Silvia will give you another one of her pep talks on the cell
    phone. Navigate the twisted path through the obstacles and climb up the 
    stairs. At the top, get the health and battery chest. Then, learn the new
    wrestling move and check the wooden deck nearby for Trading Card No.025. When
    you're ready, step into the exclamation point. 
    
         Holly Summers ~
         =============
              Holly Summers is a lot more dangerous than her peg leg and... shovel
              may suggest. At the start of the battle, run forward and you'll fall
              into a hole, one of Holly Summers' many traps. She will blow you out
              with her grenades the first time, but keep in mind that for each
              time you fall in, you'll need to mash the A Button or swing the
              Wiimote/Nunchuk as indicated on the screen. If you're too slow,
              the grenade she chucks in will throw you out (with some damage to
              boot). 
    
              Throughout the battle, Holly Summers will continually run back and
              forth between holes in an attempt to fill them back up. Even when
              she does though, the holes will still be somewhat obvious because
              they're darker than the rest of the sand. You can reveal the hole
              again by simply slashing the ground where the hole should be. It
              should be noted that when Holly Summers is running back and forth,
              she's completely vulnerable to attack. Take advantage of these
              situations whenever possible and hit the sand off of the covered
              holes to keep her busy. 
    
              Her other attacks are damaging, but quite easy to evade. When she
              glows, that can mean one of two things. Either she's about to launch
              a barrage of rockets at you or she's about to toss a grenade at her
              feet and push herself away. To avoid the rocket barrage, put a good
              bit of distance between you and Holly. Strafe to the side to avoid
              the rockets as they coming raining in on your head. As for her 
              grenade toss, just move away as quickly as you can to avoid being
              caught in the blast. 
    
              When you've brought down her health, she'll begin to use a new
              strategy. Keep an eye on her when she runs off to the rock at the
              farther end of the battlefield. When she jumps on top of the rock,
              quickly find a hole to fall into and stay there until she finishes
              her rocket barrage. While she's on top of the rock, you can't touch
              her. After a little bit of waiting, Holly Summers will jump back
              down and the fight can resume. 
    
              There are plenty of opportunities to hit Holly Summers. Apart from
              the aforementioned vulnerability when she runs to fill up the holes,
              she will also use regular melee attacks fairly often, hitting you
              with her shovel. These attacks can be darkstepped quite easily. The
              best way to fight her would be stand up close to her when she's not
              firing her missile barrage. This will force her to use more melee
              attacks, giving you more opportunities to evade and strike. 
    
              Be wary of her sand attack though. If she manages to throw a shovel 
              of sand in Travis' face, he'll be blinded temporarily. Note that 
              even this sand attack can be darkstepped and evaded easily if you 
              time it just as the sand leaves her shovel. Holly Summers is 
              vulnerable to grabs as well. Use a combination of well-placed 
              slashes and suplexes to bring down her health. 
    
    After the battle is over, Travis' soft spot for women will show. While
    carrying Holly's body, get the health powerup and the U.S. Military Secrets
    nearby. Then, step over to the hole and drop Holly's body in. You're now 
    ranked 6.

    Following the battle, a message on your answering machine (after an important
    reminder from Beef Head Videos of course) will set the next ranked fight at 
    LB$350000. A new part time job is also available, so check that out when you
    get the chance.
    
    Most importantly though, get the U.S. Military Secrets you stole from Holly
    Summers to Naomi. She will take it and use it to create a new beam katana. It
    won't be ready right away, so be sure to come back in about 15-20 minutes.
    
    When you've collected the necessary funds for the coming fight, deposit the
    sum at the ATM and return to the motel. Silvia won't be able to give you the
    location of the next fight because she's out partying somewhere, so you'll
    have to rely on yourself. Outside, follow the trail of blood (or you can just
    follow the "V" on the map) to the Senton Splash Tunnel. 
    
                                           ---
    
    As soon as you enter, turn around to find the chest for Trading Card No.026.
    Wow, now that one would be pretty easy to miss. Walk down the stairs in front
    of you and check both sides of the staircase to find Trading Card No.027 and
    Trading Card No.028. Up ahead, you'll notice a shady figure who runs from you
    whenever you get close. 
    
    The level is very straightforward, perhaps a bit too straightforward. Just
    follow the length of the tunnel as you chase the figure. Along the way, you
    will encounter various enemies armed with dark beam katanas. Dodge any enemy
    beams they launch at you from a distance and get up close to deal with them.
    Along the way, you should come across Trading Card No.029 in a chest. 
    
    Once you get to the end of the tunnel, Silvia will give you a call. Up ahead
    is a save point, health chest, and battery chest. You'll notice that there's
    no new wrestling move though. Do whatever you need to do and make your way to
    the exclamation point in the blinding light up ahead. Get Trading Card No.030
    from the chest and step in.

    Techniques (unless you already have all of them like me). 
    
    Once you deposit the sum, return to the motel. Silvia will call in and arrange
    a "date" between the two of you. Where? Who knows? Get over to the subway
    and let the bloodshed begin. 
    
                                           ---
    
    Unlike the last time you were in the subway (against Destroyman), enemies
    are actually in the station this time. The first group should not pose any
    problems. Be wary of the pistol wielder behind the turnstiles. Eliminate the
    three of them and smash the chest containing Trading Card No.031 at the other
    side of the room, by the restrooms. 
    
    Afterwards, go down the steps nearby into the main part of the station. The
    majority of the level's enemies are located down here. Begin to make your way
    toward the end of the station. Fight off the enemies as they approach you. 
    Eventually, you'll come to a submachine gunner. To avoid getting lit up, try
    to use the pillars as cover. Then, strafe around him and stick your katana
    through his head. Unlike the other pistol wielders, the submachine gunner 
    won't run away if scared. 
    
    Near the end of the level is a beam katana wielder. Just beyond him is a dark
    katana wielder. Kill the first quickly, and then engage the second. Dodge any
    energy waves he launches at you and get up close enough to strike. Once he's
    dead, the exclamation point to the next part of the level should appear. If
    not, scan the floor for any enemies you may have missed. Before you go, be
    sure to get Trading Card No.032 from the chest at the end. 
    
    After getting on the subway, Travis will nod off. You know, killing can be
    quite a tiring task. You'll soon be asked to remove the Nunchuk from the 
    Wiimote to play "Pure White Giant Glastonbury" (wow, what a mouthful), an
    interesting top-down shooter. The controls are simple. The Directional Pad
    moves the character, the A Button releases a special attack, the 1 Button
    shoots, and the 2 Button swings the sword. 
    
    The game basically pits you against an army of targets (???) that can hurt you
    by shooting at you or colliding with you. Other enemies include odd grey
    blocks that hone in on you in an attempt to crush you and various mini-boss
    vessels that can fire streams of bullets at you. The key is to use your gun
    to destroy the enemies and swing your sword to absorb energy for your 
    "Special" gauge, which fills up very quickly. The "Special" attack basically
    prevents all enemies on-screen from firing for a period of time, giving you
    ample opportunities to run up and slash each one to pieces. 
    
    When you reach the boss (what appears to be a rendition of the "Holy Hand 
    Grenade of Antioch" from Monty Python), move up to it and slash your sword.
    When the grey bars rotating around begin to close in, move back to the 
    starting position and shoot at the boss. Then, when the grey blocks recede,
    move back up and slash away. After the boss is at about half health, the 
    blocks will disappear and it'll begin covering the field with projectiles and
    bullets. It's almost impossible to weave through and reach the boss, so just
    slash with your sword and absorb energy for the "Special" meter. When it's
    full, unleash the special to disable it for a short period of time, and move
    up and slash away. Repeat this process until the boss falls.
    
    You'll be prompted to reconnect the Nunchuk to the Wiimote. Do just that and
    Travis will get off of the Subway. Turn around and smash the chest for Trading
    Card No.033. Then, begin heading toward the other end of the station. Silvia
    will give you a call. This time, by her math, you have a 2000% chance at
    victory. Those aren't bad odds if you ask me. Walk up the steps at the end and
    get the two last trading cards. Then, get the new wrestling move and save your
    game. 
    
         Harvey Moiseiwitsch Volodarskii
         ===============================
              Yes, his name is quite a mouthful, isn't it? Harvey (let's just call
              him that for now), although quirky, is not a tough boss to take 
              down. His vitality will go down quickly, which is a good thing
              because I doubt you'll be able to stand the music or his flamboyant 
              personality for too long... 
    
              Harvey has a few tricks up his sleeve. He will usually begin by 
              summoning a bunch of doves to divebomb at you. This attack is fairly
              easy to avoid, and as the battle carries on, will no longer be used.
              His other main attacks are generally swings from his two swords 
              (are they swords?) that are also easy to avoid. The regular strikes
              can be blocked and evaded. Be wary of his charged blow though 
              because Travis cannot block those. Oftentimes, Harvey will execute
              a whirlwind attack. This can be tough to avoid because it can come
              unexpectedly. 
    
              Harvey will constantly teleport around the stage. This means you'll
              have to constantly run back and forth in an attempt to get up close
              to him. Wait for him to attack, block, and quickly sidestep to get
              a good shot. The best time to attack would be just after he executes
              one of his regular sword combos. Darkstep him and hit him as many
              times as you can. Harvey is so fragile that he often becomes dizzy
              after receiving a flurry of blows. Take advantage of this by using
              wrestling moves liberally!
    
              One thing you should be aware of is that Harvey will sometimes flip
              the stage upside down. You heard me right - he will actually invert
              the stage. The controls remain as if you were still standing right
              side up, meaning that all your movements are inverted. If this is
              too trippy for you to handle, just find a corner and block until the
              screen returns to normal (should not take more than 10 seconds). 
    
              Later in the fight, Harvey will yell out: "Music begin!" and 
              just disappear. This is your cue to figure out where the spotlight 
              is... and run like hell away from it. If it manages to catch you, 
              you'll have to play Harvey's little "Nightmare" game. Travis will be 
              put in a box and prompted to either shake the Nunchuk, shake the 
              Wiimote, or press the A Button as rapidly as possible. Successfully 
              do it and Travis will emerge from the box unscathed. Fail and it's 
              an instant death. It's not really difficult to escape this, but
              you'll still want to avoid the spotlight just because the whole 
              thing ruins the fluidity of the battle and wastes a lot of time. 
              Harvey does this very often at the end, so it's best to kill him as 
              quickly as possible. 
    
              All in all, Harvey is a very easy assassin to defeat. His HP is
              extremely low - a few wrestling moves will bring his health bar down
              in no time at all. Just be wary of his "Nightmare" game and avoid
              getting Travis blown up. 
    
    I personally think Harvey's death is one of the better ones in the game. Bone-
    crunching goodness and all! Anyway, congratulations on rank 4. Unfortunately,
    you don't get any sort of health bonus at the end. Though, Travis does get to 
    steal a kiss from Silvia.

                 4.8. Rank 3                                                [4800]

    The dude at the UAA leaves you a rather sardonic message on the answering 
    machine this time around. The price tag on the next rank is a good LB$450000.
    Better get to mowing those lawns and killing Pizza Butt CEOs. 
    
    When you have the money, deposit it and return to the motel. Looks like you're
    off to Speed City now! Take care of any business you need to, and then make
    your way down to the bus station. 
    
                                           ---
    
    Oh hey, I was just looking for a bus to Speed Ci- Ow, the hell you hit me for?
    Guess these bus guys are not as friendly as you might have thought. 
    
    Feel free to kill the enemies that are attacking you right off the bat, but
    make sure you pick up Trading Card No.036 (to the right) and Trading Card No.
    037 (right in front of you when you start). In order to board the bus, you 
    have to kill all of the bouncers in the area. Use your radar (if you have the
    technique) to pinpoint each enemy. Seek them all out and collect Trading Card
    No.037 next to the building. Then, step into the exclamation point to get on
    the bus. 
    
    And we're now rolling! Oh wait, you didn't expect this to be a calm ride, did
    you? Some more goons will jump in to the bus and attempt to take you out. 
    Unfortunately, due to the angle, it can be a bit tough to get through this
    segment without taking a few hits. It's also very difficult to avoid enemy
    attacks because there's absolutely no room to move (bus aisles are not 
    particularly roomy). The best way to kill the enemies here is to put some
    distance between you and the enemy. Ready a charge blow and unleash it on the
    entire group. The cramped spaces will allow you to hit most of the enemies in
    a single hit. 
    
    When a short cutscene shows a beam katana wielder jumping in through the
    window, prepare to face an entire mob of enemies. This part can be very tough.
    Don't just swing madly or else you'll get knocked down again and again. Block,
    then attack and hope for a quick death blow to kill off most of the group. 
    
    Silvia will call you when the last enemy has been killed off. I won't divulge
    any details about the conversation, but let's just say she's a bit crazier 
    than usual. When the exclamation point appears, step into it to get off the
    bus. Hey, did you notice that there's no driver at wheel? Strange...
    
    Yep, Speed City is a pretty ugly looking place. As Travis steps off, he will
    notice that oh no! Jeane has somehow tagged along. When you get the chance,
    save your game and collect Trading Card No.039. Also get the health and battery
    pickups before stepping into the exclamation point. 
    
    Travis will stumble across Thunder Ryu, who meets a rather gruesome end at the
    hands of Speed Buster's cannon. Now it's just you... and Jeane. 
    
         Speed Buster
         ============
              Speed Buster is not your typical boss. She starts off about a mile
              away from Travis at the beginning. At this distance, you're
              completely at the mercy of her ridiculously cheap laser cannon. The
              red beam will come slowly, but if it hits Travis, he'll be pushed
              back a good distance and lose a considerable amount of katana energy.
              The key is to run up this long stretch, and duck into any alleyways
              you can. Scan your map for red dots that represent doors that can be
              broken down (only if you have the Memory of Three technique). 
              Occasionally, enemies will also be ducking for cover in this 
              alleyways - you'll have to contend with them whenever you come
              across them. Oh, and enemies will be automatically vaporized should
              they stand in the way of the laser cannon. It's kind of funny. 
     
              Continue down the stretch using this duck and cover strategy until
              you get fairly close to Speed Buster (by this I mean there's no
              viable areas to take cover in any further down the stretch). At this
              point, duck into the alleyway on the left and you'll notice a line
              of telephone poles. It has a red dot on it (assuming you have the
              Memory of Three technique), so it must serve some significance.
              Before you try tinkering with it though, head back down the other
              way in that back alley and search for the last chest containing
              Trading Card No.040. 
    
              Now, return to that telephone pole and knock it down. The pole will
              knock down the entire chain of telephone poles and the last one will
              fall right on top of Speed Buster's precious cannon. Uh oh, looks
              like it's over for her. Now all you have to do is walk up to her and
              finish the fight. 
    
    Collect the health pickup and take your prize, a Japanese Katana. Then, step 
    into the exclamation point. Congratulations, you're now... ranked 2. There's
    only two more to go. 
    
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
                 4.9. Rank 2                                                [4900]
    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
    LB$500000 is the price to pay for the next fight. Ouch! Well, it should be
    noted before I say anything else that even though Thunder Ryu ate it pretty
    badly with the whole Speed Buster scenario, you can still visit his office. 
    His ghost is still there (if that kind of stuff creeps you out at all) for
    your information. 
    
    Don't forget to give the Japanese Katana to Dr. Naomi. She will offer to make
    something really cool out of it. Be sure to come back later to pick up the
    Tsubaki Mk-III. It's an expensive purchase, but it sure as hell is worth it!
    Don't worry about the Energy Saving upgrade yet. It's nice to have, but you
    probably do not want to go through the trouble of raising all that money...
    just yet. 
    
    For now though, just go around and raise the money for the next ranked fight.
    Once you do, deposit the LB$500000 in the ATM as always. Looks like you're
    heading to Destroy Stadium again. 
    
                                           ---
    
    When you arrive at Destroy Stadium, you'll be prompted to jump over the 
    entrance barrier. This is simple enough to achieve because I'm sure you've
    already discovered the Schpeltiger jump at this point. Once you've over, begin
    riding through the parking lot of the stadium all the way to the other side.
    At the other end, you will have to jump over the barrier leading into the
    actual stadium itself (next to the 'II' icon). Why Travis can't just get off
    the bike and hop the barrier by himself is beyond me.
    
    Anyway, once you've entered the stadium, you will be pitted against a whole
    legion of goons. The good thing is that you still have possession of the 
    Schpeltiger. Simply run down the enemies as they appear. This is a nice 
    deviation from the simple hack-and-slash missions of the past. Trading Cards
    No.041 through No.043 can be found in the chests scattered around the baseball
    stadium. There are also a number of health pickups and battery pickups around
    as well. You don't need to get off your bike to pick anything up. Simply drive
    over a trading card (once you've broken the chest with the bike) to pick it 
    up. 
    
    If you somehow get knocked off your bike (because a goon hit you off or
    something), you'll have to fight the rest of the battle on foot. Needless to
    say, you DO NOT want this to happen. The enemies are easy enough to run over
    but on foot, the submachine gunners and the whole mobs of enemies will prove
    to be extremely dangerous. If you do get knocked off, use moves that can
    damage entire mobs of enemies. Try to make good use of charge blows and 
    counters (covered in the Battle Techniques section if you're still unfamiliar
    with it) to devastate entire groups of enemies. If you get knocked off your
    bike early in the mission, you might as well just restart. 
    
    Once all the enemies are dead, a secret entrance will appear underneath the
    home plate. Step into the exclamation point. Silvia will give you a call 
    around this time. Be sure to get the health and battery pickups if you need
    them. Learn the new wrestling move (it's been a while since one of these has
    popped up) and save your game too. Don't forget about Trading Card No.044 and
    Trading Card No.045 in the two red chests here. When you're ready to go, 
    initiate the fight with Bad Girl. 
    
         Bad Girl 
         ========
              Bad Girl is a psychotic bitch with a baseball bat. She is also one
              of the tougher bosses in No More Heroes. Defeating her takes a lot
              of patience and a good knowledge of her battle techniques. The key
              thing to remember here is that you MUST fight defensively. It's 
              impossible to hit her when she is not attacking. Rather, you have to
              take advantage of the delay after each of her attacks because that
              is essentially the only time you can damage her with the katana. 
              Otherwise, she will just block your attacks, leaving you vulnerable
              for one of her deadly counters. 
    
              Bad Girl begins with a few basic bat combos. These can be blocked
              easily. At the beginning of the fight, her combos won't last too
              long, but as you deal more damage to her, she will begin to add more
              blows to each one. As the fight carries on, they'll still be just as
              easy to block. Following each of these strings, Bad Girl will delay
              her attacks for a few seconds, giving you ample opportunities to go
              in deal a few blows of your own. The end of these combos also gives
              you a great chance to perform a darkstep (I find it easier doing it
              to the left because sometimes, she'll just evade your blows from the
              right) and get in a bunch of hits. 
    
              As the fight carries on, Bad Girl will incorporate more dangerous
              moves into the battle. Watch carefully when she twirls her bat 
              around in her (she usually says "Batter up!" while doing this) hand.
              This is your cue to immediately dodge out of the way before she 
              finishes the move. The final strike is unblockable and deals a good
              deal of damage. After dodging to the side, you can run up around to
              her rear and get in a few strikes this way. 
    
              When you notice her charging up while standing in the typical batter
              stance, DO NOT hit her. This is her counter, and she will knock you 
              a good one if you attempt to attack her. This move should not be an 
              issue because you shouldn't be directly trying to attack her anyway 
              (remember, fight defensively). 
    
              Occasionally, Bad Girl will just fall on the ground and cry. This is
              one of her more cheaper techniques, and it can catch players off 
              guard. Look at her hand placement carefully - if one of her hands is
              resting on her bat, DO NOT attempt to attack her. If you do, she
              will knock Travis down and beat him the bat until he dies (this is 
              her instant death move). After you wait it out, she will get back
              up, muttering a quick curse under her breath. At this point, you can
              move in and get a few hits in. However, if both her hands are on her 
              face when she's crying, you can just walk up to her and deal a few
              blows without fear. 
    
              Not too far into the fight, Bad Girl will run up to the conveyor
              belt and begin batting her personal gimps at you. There are several
              ways you can avoid this. Either dodge out of the way as the gimp
              flies at you OR bat the gimp back at her. The second method requires
              precise timing - the katana has to connect with the gimp just as he
              hits you. If you're successful, a prompt will appear on-screen
              (similar to a weapon clash) telling you to rotate your Wiimote and
              Nunchuk. Doing so will damage Bad Girl a bit, but you'll still have
              to fight the gimps regardless of whether or not you batted him back.
              Later in the battle, Bad Girl will catch on to your trick and begin 
              batting the gimps back at you. Unless your timing is excellent, I 
              strongly suggest you just dodge the gimps instead. 
    
              Her final attack is a shockwave move. She usually begins to execute
              this near the end of the fight, after she has lit her bat on fire.
              Watch her carefully. When she hops up in the air, be prepared to
              dodge as soon as she lands. The shockwave is by far her strongest
              attack, so you do not want to get hit by it if you're low on health.
              Apart from that, she does not gain any new attacks.
    
              As stated before, you can only attack her after she finishes a move.
              The best time to do so is after one of her bat combos. Block these
              until she finishes them with a powerful down smash and then darkstep
              to the left. Then, mash the A Button to dish out a ton of damage. If
              you can get her dizzy in the process, walk up and suplex her for 
              some extra damage. It's more difficult to darkstep her against some
              of her techniques. For the "Batter up!" and shockwave attacks, I'd 
              recommend just dodging and then running behind her for the strike. 
              
              If you're having any trouble with the fight, use the gimps she bats
              at you to your advantage. Any death blow performed on a gimp has the
              potential to hit Bad Girl as well. If you can move the gimps closer
              to her and initiate a death blow on each one, you can easily land in
              a few cheap shots against Bad Girl. 
    
    Following the battle, get the health powerup and step into the exclamation
    point. Silvia's henchmen will show up, but she was apparently unable to attend

    The first rank is in sight! Before you can undertake it though, you will have
    to raise up some money not only for the actual ranked fight, but also for the
    katana upgrades (if you haven't purchased them already). For the LB$999999 
    Energy Saving upgrade, you're looking at a lot of lawns to mow. Okay, you 
    don't have to mow lawns, but it's still tedious work. 
    
    Since this is going to be your last fight, take this time to fully upgrade
    Travis. Complete all of the exercises at Thunder Ryu's and attain all of the
    Lovikov Techniques if you haven't already. 
    
    Deposit the LB$550000 when you have it. Before you return to the motel though,
    make sure that you have the Memory of Child technique learned. You'll be 
    kicking yourself later if you don't. 
    
                                           ---
    
    As soon as you leave the motel room, a shady guy will drive off with your
    precious Schpeltiger. Looks like you're running the rest of the way on your
    own. Hopefully, you have the Memory of Child technique to make the trip a bit
    easier. Run down towards the 'I' symbol on the mini-map to find your 
    Schpeltiger just sitting there. A few goons will fly by on their motorbikes.
    Take chase!
    
    This highway chase pits you against two enemies driving around on motorcycles.
    Keep up with them and ram them off. Let them get too far away and they'll 
    start to drop fire behind them. One ram should be sufficient to knock down a
    rider. Another thing to note: don't crash into the various boxes scattered
    along the highway or else you'll take damage. The enemy will often accidentally
    run into these boxes themselves (they were never all that intelligent) and 
    take care of themselves for you. Do not attempt to ram into a motorcycle that
    has already been downed because you'll take damage as well. 
    
    Eventually, a ramp will lead you off the highway on to a back road through 
    some thick woods. Occasionally, you'll come across a fallen tree. Avoid these
    by jumping over them. Enemies on motorbikes will still attempt to follow you
    here, but they'll almost always be knocked down by the trees. 
    
    After a bit more driving, a laser will begin to fire at you. Watch the beam
    carefully because after a few seconds, the laser will appear. As soon as this
    happens, boost to the other side of the road to avoid it. It may take a bit of
    practice to get the hang of it. The laser does minimal damage anyway, so don't
    fret too much over it. A short bit after that, the camera will reveal a 
    drawbridge up ahead. Boost when the speedometer appears on the screen and
    jump when the prompt comes up. Do it correctly and Travis will sail over the
    gap into the woods. 
    
    Before you do anything else, turn around collect Trading Card No.046 in the
    chest sitting next to the concrete wall. Then, begin walking into the woods to
    encounter Thunder Ryu's ghost. He will point you in the right direction. No,
    he's not lying! Just go right (If you take the wrong path, a deep mist will
    encircle Travis and return him to the starting position. Actually, this can be
    used to your advantage because health chests respawn) and fight the enemies 
    that appear in the path. These enemies are much tougher than the ones you've
    battled in the past. Also, they are all equipped with beam katanas. Even so,
    defeating them should not be too tough. Just block and evade their charged
    attacks and watch out for energy beams.
    
    At the next fork, smash the chest for Trading Card No.047. Then, turn left 
    and follow the path. Some more katana-wielding thugs will appear in your path.
    Deal with them anyway you see fit. At the next fork, smash the chest for 
    Trading Card No.048. To proceed, take the right path. If you need it, there's
    a health chest located just a little bit down the left path. Don't step too 
    far though or else you'll be brought back to the start. 
    
    After walking down this path, you'll be pitted against four katana-wielding
    enemies. This fight can be tough, especially with all of the unblockable 
    charged attacks they have. I find that the easiest way (assuming you're 
    carrying the Tsubaki Mk-III) to defeat them all is to simply unleash a low
    charge attack on your katana. A single one should be able to knock out at
    least two of them. Then, just work on defeating the remaining two. At the 
    fork, smash the chest for Trading Card No.049 and turn left. 
    
    At the end, Thunder Ryu will disappear, leaving behind a letter. After reading
    it, get Trading Card No.050 in the chest nearby and proceed. You'll receive 
    one last call from Silvia along the way. Save your game and pick up the health
    chest before entering the realm of the final ranked assassin (even though it's
    all been revealed to be a crock, it's still a pretty epic moment). 
    
         Dark Star
         =========
              ... He eats it before you even get a chance. 
    
    After some chilling revelations, it's time to fight the one. And boy, is she
    a tough one. 
    
         Jeane
         =====
              Jeane is one of the toughest bosses in the game. She's not all that
              dangerous, and her attacks are fairly easy to avoid, but she has an
              uncanny ability to dodge almost all of your moves. It's impossible
              to land extended combos on her because she can just twist out of the
              way with ease. She has a tendency to dodge nearly every regular 
              swing you throw at her, meaning you'll have to rely on hitting her
              after she strikes at you or... even better, using charged attacks.
    
              Jeane begins with a few weak attacks. Her most common attack is a 
              combo of blows. The first few strikes are blockable, but the last
              punch is unblockable. Remember that! To avoid it, simply keep your
              guard up and dodge out of the way before the final blow lands. If
              you're feeling extra daring, you can actually strike her before she
              lands the final blow. It is possible to hit her enough to completely
              prevent her from landing the final blow. Alternatively, you can 
              darkstep to the side to catch her off-guard for a few seconds. This 
              combo attack changes very little through the course of the battle. 
              The strategy for avoiding remains the same. 
    
              She also employs a high roundhouse kick in which she launches one
              leg up into the air and sends it down, knocking Travis to the ground
              should it connect. This move does negligible damage and is easily
              avoided with a simple dodge. Jeane becomes vulnerable after landing.
              This move appears less frequently as the battle carries on. 
    
              Occasionally, Jeane will zip around in a semi-circle to change her 
              position. This move does not deal any damage. Rather, it's just a 
              means for her to attain a better fighting position in relation to
              Travis. 
    
              When you notice Jeane charging up in a defensive stance, DO NOT 
              attack her or else you'll suffer a nasty counter attack. This move
              is not difficult to avoid (just don't attack her!), but if you were 
              in a middle of an attack, you'll probably eat a big one. 
    
              Jeane's most dangerous move is a charged attack. It's easy to 
              predict, though it can be tough to dodge effectively. Watch her 
              carefully when she lowers her stance and charges up. A few seconds
              later, you can be sure that she'll dash toward you. If this move
              connects, Travis will be knocked off his feet with a good chunk of
              health missing. The key to avoiding this charged attack is to wait
              a few seconds before dodging. If you dodge too early, Jeane will hit
              Travis just as he's emerging out of his dodge. Later in the fight,
              this attack turns into a two-part charge and eventually, a three-
              part charge. Avoid them by dodging twice and three times. 
    
              Finally, she acquires a small shockwave move about halfway through
              the fight. Watch her when she lifts a foot in the air. As soon as 
              this sign pops up, dodge immediately. She does it quickly, so timing
              is everything. 
    
              When Jeane is brought down to about 2/3 of her health bar, she will
              make the dragon barrier surrounding the grounds smaller. She will do
              this again at approximately a third of her health bar as well. There
              will be less room to maneuver, but the battle does not get that much
              harder. 
    
              Defeating Jeane can be a tough task, especially if you aren't used
              to her fighting style. As stated before, she dodges nearly every
              strike you attempt to her with. However, this can be used to your
              advantage. Even whilst in the middle of one of her own attacks, 
              Jeane will quickly cancel her own attack to evade one of your blows.
              This can be used to prevent her from using her deadly charged
              attacks or cancel the final charged blow of her combo attack.
              Although you won't be able to land a hit on her, using this strategy
              can fend off an attack when dodging is not an option. 
    
              Regular swings won't always connect, so charged attacks are more
              efficient in this case. You don't even need to charge it all the 
              way - simply hold the A Button down for a second and release.
              Granted, it won't be a powerful swing, but it's enough to knock 
              Jeane back a little bit. She has a tough time dodging these, so use
              them as often as you can. The best time to attack her would be just
              after she has finished one of her attacks in the few split seconds
              she is vulnerable. After successfully landing a weak charged attack,
              you can easily follow up with a few more strikes. 
    
              One last thing, DO NOT try to grapple Jeane. If you do, she will
              turn the suplex against Travis and end up dealing a healthy bit of
              damage. 
    
              If you've tried your hardest and still can't seem to defeat her, 
              there is a rather cheap method of finishing her. The low charged
              attack on the Tsubaki Mk-III is devastating, especially when all
              three hits land on her. Since Jeane fights somewhat defensively, you
              should be able to easily find the time to charge the katana up 
              quickly. Execute a low charged attack while she's in the middle of
              one of her combos because Travis is invincible while using it. This
              way, Jeane will close enough for all three hits to land. Using this
              move, her health bar will deplete in no time. 
    
              After dealing the final blow, you'll be forced into an automatic
              weapon clash. Waggle the Wiimote as hard as humanly possible to
              finish the fight. 
    
    After the battle, Shinobu will fly in from nowhere and save Travis from an
    uncertain demise. Jeane is dead, making you rank one! As if it mattered at all
    now...
    
    Save your game and you'll be given the option of viewing the ending or viewing
    the "real ending." If the second option is not there, then you haven't 
    acquired the three beam katanas. Return to Santa Destroy and do just that to 
    make it appear. 
    
    ... Real Ending... 
    
    Surprise, Henry returns to finish the fight! 
    
         Henry 
         =====
              The first time you fight him, Henry may make you bawl your eyes out
              - he's that difficult. His speed is unmatched (except for Jeane), 
              his attacks are quick and oftentimes unpredictable, and his vitality
              is extremely high. Not only that, but he will often employ an
              instant death move that is easy enough to avoid, but may catch you
              off guard and completely ruin the fight. Though tough, Henry does
              have a few weaknesses you can easily exploit. 
    
              Henry utilizes a six-strike combo. This will be his most common move
              and the one that you should take full advantage of. The first five
              strikes are blockable, but the last one is a charged attack and 
              cannot be blocked - he will jump and spin in the air before landing
              his katana right through Travis. This move is really the least 
              dangerous of them all. You can darkstep this combo at nearly any
              point. Unlike Jeane, Henry doesn't dodge your swings, so you can
              land a healthy number of hits on him using just a single darkstep.
              This combo is fast, but if you are quick to react when he uses it,
              you can easily turn it against him. 
    
              Henry also employs a spinning slash. It's a charged move, so you can
              not block it. Watch carefully when Henry charges up and quickly 
              dodge back before he executes it. This move isn't particularly
              damaging and not as dangerous as his other attacks though, so don't
              worry if you get hit by it a few times. Note that after using it,
              Henry is vulnerable for a few seconds. Take advantage of this 
              opportunity to land two or three blows. 
    
              Much like Jeane, Henry has a counter attack. When he appears to be
              charging up, holding his katana in front of him, DO NOT attack him
              or you'll suffer a powerful hit back. Instead, take the opportunity
              to attain a better fighting position or use the time to charge up a
              charged blow to meet him with when he leaves the counter stance. 
    
              When Henry moves the hilt of his katana to his neck and charges up,
              be prepared for a projectile attack consisting of some energy beams
              (similar to those utilized by the dark beam katana wielders). Avoid
              these by simply dodging out of the way. This attack has a fairly 
              long downtime after its use. Again, take advantage of the delay to
              get in a few more hits. 
    
              One of Henry's more dangerous moves is his dash, which is similar to
              Jeane's charged attack. He will charge up - after a few seconds, he
              will come dashing toward Travis with lightning speed. If you fail to
              get out of the way, you'll suffer a nasty hit. Obviously, dodging
              out of the way is the way to avoid it, but the key is to time the 
              dodge so that you don't dodge too early or too late. Dodge too early
              and the dash will come to meet you as you emerge out of the dodge.
              Dodge too late... and you know what happens. If you're feeling bold,
              you can actually charge up your katana and hit Henry as he's dashing
              toward you. If you successfully do it, he will be knocked back,
              effectively canceling his dash. 
    
              Lastly, Henry's instant death move, which is very similar to his 
              dash attack, will be used liberally as his health bar slowly
              depletes. The pre-animation is almost the same as the dash, except
              Harvey will extend his katana behind him. After a few seconds, he
              will come dashing toward you. If the move connects, Henry will 
              impale Travis and then throw him up the air to finish with a rather
              flashy sequence. Side dodges will be your best friend in this
              instance. Be sure to wait a few seconds before dodging because Henry
              does delay for a few seconds before executing the attack (in a 
              similar fashion to his dash attack). Avoid this move as if your life
              depended on it! 
    
              In order to beat Henry effectively, you'll need to be able to know
              his attacks and to dodge them efficiently. Once you have that down,
              you can begin to look for potential openings in Henry's attacks.
              Understand that nearly all of his attacks has a short downtime at
              the end of each. Take advantage of these delays and land a few hits
              before he gets a chance to recover. The dash and "instant death"
              attacks have particularly long delays (around three seconds long).
     
              As stated before, you can actually darkstep his combo attack quite
              easily. When you do, mash the A Button and try to land as many hits
              as you can. Should you dizzy him, immediately pull off a suplex for
              some heavy damage. 
    
              Although you shouldn't actively try to hit him while he's attacking
              you, you may occasionally have a weapon clash. Try to win these 
              because the resulting death blow will deal some serious damage to
              Henry, cutting out a nice chunk of his health bar. 
    
              Henry has a lot of vitality, but eventually, he will fall at last.
              Just keep your eye on him and carefully watch his attacks. Getting
              caught in his instant death attack is a huge downer, especially 
              after you've reduced him to just a sliver of health. All in all, the
              one thing you want to avoid with your life (because your life counts
              on it) is that goddamn instant death impaling move. Summary: Hit
              Henry, but don't get hit back.

              crush their plans, kill Pizza Butt's CEO.
    
              Your target is the Pizza Butt CEO, who is at the center of the huge
              mob ahead of you. Do not be provoked into attacking his henchmen
              because killing them will only waste time. Try to circle around the
              guards and approach the CEO. He's armed with a gun, so keep your
              Z Button pressed down to block any shots he attempts to fire at you.
              As you get close, the CEO will attempt to run away. Trap him in a

              This mission pits you up against a whole mob of goons armed with
              razors and katanas. One of the enemies will be holding a beam 
              katana. You should able to pinpoint that enemy with ease. As the
              enemies approach you, charge up your beam katana for a charged slash
              and release it when the crowd gets close. Then, begin to focus on
              killing and isolating the enemies that weren't hit by the charged
              slash. Take caution around the beam katana-wielding enemy. The best
              way to dispose of him quickly would be to perform a grab on him and 
              then execute a down attack while he's down. Apart from him, you 
              should have minimal trouble killing the remainder of the group.
              Just keep your guard up when not attacking and you'll be fine.

              Charged beat attacks are absolutely necessary in this mission. Don't
              count on stunning anyone with a regular beat attack. The first few
              enemies will be easy to eliminate because they're mostly by
              themselves. Quickly run up to them and beat attack them before they
              can hit you back. Landing just a single grab on these enemies will
              be enough to do them in. After the eighth kill or so, the enemies
              will begin to appear in bigger numbers. These can be an issue
              because the other enemies will interrupt your grab attempts. If
              possible, lead a few away from the pack and kill them away from the
              rest of the group. Then, slowly work your way through the remaining
              enemies until time runs out. 
    
         Gig 4: Baseball Battle ~
         =--------------------=
              Requirements: Lawn Mowing (silver ranking)
              Location: Santa Destroy Stadium
              Time Limit: N/A
              Reward: LB$4500 per kill
    
              Go on a batting killing spree!
    
              This gig is ridiculously easy. Remember the little batting battle in
              Destroy Stadium? Well, this is essentially the same thing. Watch the
              pitch as it approaches you and swing your Wiimote as fast as you can
              (similar to Wii Sports baseball if you're familiar with that). If
              you can successfully knock down every player, the gold ranking is 
              yours. You'll be given three pitches total. 
    
         Gig 5: Pizza Butt Returns ~
         =-----------------------=
              Requirements: Garbage Collection (bronze ranking)
              Location: Avalanche Hold Street
              Time Limit: 1 minute
              Reward: LB$50000
    
              Chain restaurant Pizza Butt plans to open up in Santa Destroy. To
              crush their plans, kill Pizza Butt's CEO.
    
              This gig does not really differ significantly from the previous 
              Pizza Butt mission. Some of the guards will be wielding guns this
              time but even so, getting to the target should be fairly easy to 
              accomplish. The key to getting a favorable time is to just make a
              beeline straight for the target as soon as you start the battle. Do
              not waste precious seconds engaging the other enemies because they
              will be sure to tie you up. Once you reach the target, you can 
              simply knock him with a grab or darkstep him to quickly perform a
              finishing strike on him. 
    
         Gig 6: Sword Master ~
         =-----------------=
              Requirements: Garbage Collection (silver ranking)
              Location: Santa Destroy High School
              Time Limit: 2 minute
              Reward: LB$4000 per kill
    
              Kill as many as you can within the time limit.  Mission ends when 
              time runs out.
    
              You're up against a fixed number of enemies in this battle. Each is
              automatically killed with a single strike (leading up to a death
              blow, of course). Two minutes is plenty of time to eliminate the
              15 hooligans in the battle. To ease the process, group the enemies
              together so you can kill more than one at a time with each death
              blow. 
    
         Gig 7: Death Match 100 ~
         =--------------------=
              Requirements: Gas Stand (bronze ranking)
              Location: Bear Hug Studios
              Time Limit: 5 minutes
              Reward: LB$90000
    
              Kill 100 enemies. Mission ends when all targets are dead. 
    
              Slashfest! All of the enemies will spawn in huge numbers in the 
              beginning of the mission. Each is easily killed with a single slash
              from your katana, leading up to a death blow immediately. The 
              jumping slash technique is also quite useful because it automatically
              kills those enemies not equipped with beam katanas. The best way to
              really go about getting 100 kills is to simply mash the A Button.
              Enemies will continually respawn in the same spots, so there's no
              need to do any moving around. There's no point in guarding since all 
              of your enemies go down in a single hit. Near the end of the battle, 
              the enemies will take a bit longer than appear, so keep your eyes 
              peeled. 
    
         Gig 8: Baseball Battle Round 2 ~
         =----------------------------=
              Requirements: Gas Stand (silver ranking)
              Location: Santa Destroy Stadium
              Time Limit: N/A
              Reward: LB$5500 per kill
    
              Go on a batting killing spree.
    
              As far as I can tell, this gig is identical to Gig 5: Baseball
              Battle. The same strategy applies. Just keep your eyes on the ball
              as it approaches and swing your Wiimote like a baseball bat. You
              have three chances to knock down all of the enemies. 
    
         Gig 9: Dark Side Battle ~
         =---------------------=
              Requirements: Gas Stand (silver ranking)
              Location: Avalanche Hold St.
              Time Limit: 1.5 minutes
              Reward: LB$3000 per kill
    
              Kill all the enemies within the time limit. Dark Side Mode will be
              activated. Mission ends when time runs out. 
    
              This mission has Travis' Cranberry Chocolate Sundae mode already
              activated. All enemies will be unable to attack you, so just waltz
              your way up to them and press the indicated button that appears. 
              Hit the correct button for a bloody spectacle of death. Hit the
              wrong button and Travis won't really do anything. More or less, how
              well you do in this mission depends on your knowledge of button
              placement. 
    
         Gig 10: Tiger Hall ~
         =----------------=
              Requirements: Mine Sweeping (bronze ranking)
              Location: Body Slam Beach
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$4000 per kill
    
              Kill as many as you can within the time limit. Mission ends when
              time runs out.
     
              The enemies in this battle are spread out, making the process of
              getting to them a real pain. There are a number of ranged gunners
              in the pack, along with your standard melee units. The key to 
              getting a good kill count is to focus first on the melee units, and
              then chase the pistol wielding soldiers, who will just run away from
              you whenever you get close. 
    
         Gig 11: Pizza Butt: The Finale ~
         =----------------------------=
              Requirements: Mine Sweeping (silver ranking)
              Location: Avalanche Hold St.
              Time Limit: 1 minute
              Reward: LB$75000
    
              Chain restaurant Pizza Butt plans to open up in Santa Destroy. To
              crush their plans, kill Pizza Butt's CEO.
    
              Don't let the multitude of beam katana wielders fool you. The 
              objective has always been to kill the CEO and ONLY the CEO. Start
              off by approaching the mob. Most likely, the majority of them will
              attempt a charged attack. Don't worry if you're knocked down right
              away. Get back up and quickly and plow through the group toward the
              target. Provoke an enemy to attack and perform a darkstep to slow 
              time. This will give you an adequate opportunity to pinpoint the
              CEO and aim your attacks in his general direction. Don't worry if
              you can't initiate a death blow directly on him. Initiating death
              blows on an enemy nearby might be able to hit in the process. I
              would suggest using the Tsubaki Mk-II for its superior death blow
              range. 
    
         Gig 12: Pro-Wrestling Contest ~
         =---------------------------=
              Requirements: Graffiti Cleaning (bronze ranking)
              Location: Body Slam Beach
              Time Limit: 2.5 minutes
              Reward: LB$5000 per kill
     
              Kill using wrestling moves only. No other moves are allowed for this
              mission.
    
              In order to successfully daze the enemies on the beachead, you'll
              need to use charged beat attacks. Most of the soldiers are equipped
              with standard melee weapons, so you can just walk to them and kick
              them in the face. There are two units with pistols and a submachine
              gunner near the end of the beach though. These units will be tougher
              to effectively daze because they'll just run away from you when you
              get close. Back them up against a wall to force them to stand and
              fight. One grab will be enough to kill any enemy.
    
         Gig 13: Underground ~
         =-----------------=
              Requirements: Graffiti Cleaning (silver ranking)
              Location: Rounding Body Press Station
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$5000 per kill
    
              Kill as many as you can within the time limit. Mission ends when
              time runs out.
    
              This mission is completely IDENTICAL to the subway segment of the
              Destroyman fight. The first train starts with one enemy who you'll
              have to kill. Clear out all of the opposition in one car to move to
              the next. It's a very straightforward process. Since you are not up
              against a huge force of enemies, this mission should be quite easy
              to complete. Note that the last enemy is armed with a beam katana.
              
         Gig 14: Baseball Battle Round 3 ~
         =-----------------------------=
              Requirements: Graffiti Cleaning (silver ranking)
              Location: Santa Destroy Stadium
              Time Limit: N/A
              Reward: LB$7000 per kill
    
              Go on a batting killing spree.
    
              The first guy in the line will pitch the ball to you. Swing the
              Wiimote as hard as you can and smash the ball through the line of
              enemies. The ball is slightly tougher to hit than the previous two
              Baseball Battle Rounds, but with enough power, you'll be able to
              knock down all of the enemies easily. 
    
         Gig 15: Extreme Fight ~
         =-------------------=
              Requirements: Meow Meow (bronze ranking)
              Location: Rounding Body Press Station
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: It's a secret (actually, it's LB$7000 per kill)
    
              Struggle against all odds. Kill all targets. All other details will
              be a nice surprise. 
    
              The secret detail in this mission is that you have to kill all 
              enemies, upside down. This fight is similar to the Harvey fight when
              he inverts the stage on you. Since you're in the subway, moving
              around isn't much of a problem because you can't really move 
              anywhere. Anyway, just go through the subway cars killing all the
              enemies that cross your path. It should not be too difficult at all.
              One last thing, death blows are not inverted. Swing your Wiimote in
              the direction indicated on-screen regardless of your inverted-ness.
    
         Gig 16: Armed Hoods ~
         =-----------------=
              Requirements: Meow Meow (silver ranking)
              Location: Rounding Body Press Station
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$7000 per kill
     
              Kill as fast as you can. Enemies are armed with live ammo. Mission
              ends when all targets are dead. 
    
              It is not really all armed enemies you're fighting here. Some of the
              goons are still equipped with the same old melee weapons. Regardless,
              just kill off the enemies with extreme prejudice as always. Dealing
              with submachine gunners in this mission is not as annoying as it 
              usually is because of the close quarters of the subway train. When 
              you reach the final train, be careful of the three beam katana
              wielders. Consider using charged attacks to knock all of them back.
              Then, proceed to perform down attacks on all of them. 
    
        Gig 17: Speed Jack ~
        =----------------=
              Requirements: Scorpion Extermination (bronze ranking)
              Location: Rolling Cradle Highway Bus Stop
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$5500 per kill
    
              Kill all the enemies within the time limit. Mission ends when all
              targets are dead. 
    
              This assassination mission puts you on a bus reminiscent of the one
              to Speed City (it even says Speed City on it). The camera angle is
              pretty bad for this fight, but it's not tough considering all your
              enemies are in the same cramped space as you. Therefore, it's not
              recommended that you just mash the A Button (actually, it's never
              recommended that you just mash any buttons). Rather, actively block
              and evade to avoid getting knocked around so much. Also, rely on
              death blows and charged attacks that can affect multiple units at
              the same time. You should be able to finish with more than a minute
              remaining on the clock. 
    
         Gig 18: Gamble Fight ~
         =------------------=
              Requirements: Scorpion Extermination (silver ranking)
              Location: Gold Town
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$1500 per kill
    
              Kill all the enemies within the time limit. The type of enemy you
              will fight is a secret. Mission ends when time runs out. 
     
              There is no set amount of enemies in this mission. Yes, they will
              keep pouring continually. Kill as many enemies as you can within
              three minutes. This bloodbath doesn't exactly warrant much strategy.
              I'll say this though: use attacks that have a wide radius of damage.
              The Tsubaki Mk-II is recommended just because it has such a wide
              radius of damage. 
    
         Gig 19: Single Strike ~
         =-------------------=
              Requirements: Bike Jump (bronze ranking)
              Location: Body Slam Beach
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$10000 per kill
    
              Kill without taking a single hit from the enemy. A tough mission
              that requires all your skill. 
    
              If you are good at free fight missions, this mission should not be
              much of an issue. All of the spawned enemies wield submachine guns,
              so it can be a bit rough. A good way to effectively finish this
              mission with a high success rate, in my opinion, is to use the 
              darkstepping technique. The enemies spawn way too close to each
              other for most other techniques to be used safely. At the start, move
              towards the first enemy with your guard. Strafe from left to right
              to avoid getting caught in the line of fire. When you are fairly
              close (leave some room because the enemy won't fire otherwise), 
              stand still and wait for the enemy to empty a clip on your katana.
              Then, quickly perform a darkstep and rip him apart. Repeat this
              process on the remaining enemies as you move down the beach. If you
              need to recharge your katana, move back far enough so the enemies
              don't shoot at you. 
    
              Alternatively, you can use the jumping slash technique to quickly
              knock the enemy off his feet and finish with a down attack. When
              using this strategy, make sure you DO NOT jump slash into an enemy's
              line of fire for obvious reasons. 
    
         Gig 20: Batting Killing Centre ~
         =----------------------------=
              Requirements: Bike Jump (silver ranking)
              Location: Destroy Stadium Basement
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$3000 per kill
    
              Kill all the enemies within the time limit. You'll face cloned 
              humans. 
    
              The last assassination mission is not tough at all. You're placed
              in the same batting cage that you originally fought Bad Girl in. 
              Groups and groups of gimps will spawn in the middle. Luckily, they
              are all grouped together. Attacks that can deal damage to large 
              groups are excellent.

             --- 6. Job Center Missions ---                                 [6000]
    ===============================================================================
    
    Job Center missions... I shouldn't even call them missions. These part-time
    jobs are seemingly insignificant (because they are). It doesn't seem right 
    that a top assassin should have to meet his dues collecting coconuts and 
    mowing lawns. However, these jobs will be necessary to gain the money 
    required for every ranked fight. 
    
    After completing a job, you will be given one of three rankings: bronze, 
    silver, or gold. A bronze ranking earns you a Part 1 of an assassin mission
    (most assassin missions come in 2 segments, rarely 3). A silver ranking 
    unlocks Part 2 of an assassin gig at K-Entertainment and a gold ranking 
    unlocks Part 3 of an assassin gig (if applicable) and a Free Fight mission at 
    various points in the city. 
    
    Don't worry too much about rankings. Getting the gold in Job Centers is 
    usually quite easy.

              Collect coconuts. Perform a rolling sobat against a palm tree to
              make coconuts fall.
    
              The employer is a coconut vendor stationed near the shoreline along
              the west side of Santa Destroy. The task is simple enough: hit the 
              nearby palm trees to knock down coconuts. Anywhere from 1-4 cococuts 
              can fall from each tree at a time. Before you can move on to the 
              next tree, you must pick up the dropped coconuts with the A Button. 
              Return to the vendor with your heavy prizes in tow (keeping in mind 
              that you can mash the A Button to waddle slightly faster). Once 
              you've dropped them off, go ahead and move on to another tree. Oh,
              and watch your head!

              Requirements: Rank 9 
              Location: Within Santa Destroy
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$300 per for each acre cut
             
              Looking for Lawn Mowers. Cut as much as you can inside of the 
              required area within the time limit. 
    
              First of all, the acre the description is referring to is not a real
              acre. Rather, it's more like a square foot. Anyway, you're given 
              plenty of time to mow the entire lot. The A Button is forward, 
              B Button is reverse, and the Z Button performs a sharp turn. Tilt
              the Wiimote in the direction you want to turn. As for the task 
              itself, the most efficient way to get all of the grass would be 
              begin mowing around the outside of the lawn first. Then, slowly work
              your way in and reach the center. Should you miss any spots, go cut
              them after getting to the center. Clean up any remaining patches of
              grass and the gold ranking is yours. 
    
         Garbage Collection ~
         =----------------=
              Requirements: Rank 8
              Location: Spine Buster Ave. Cleaning Facility
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$1000 per garbage
    
              Clean up Santa Destroy. Pick up as much garbage as you can within
              the time limit. 
     
              This is a fairly simple job. To pick up garbage, just stand next to
              a piece of trash and press the A Button. Then, swing the Wiimote up
              to throw it in your pack. Don't try to run into pieces of garbage on
              the ground because Travis will just kick them away. Most of the 
              garbage is located fairly close to each other. If you find that you
              are running long distances without much efficient garbage collecting,
              then you're doing something wrong. Stick to a general area and stay
              there. 
    
         Gas Stand ~
         =-------=
              Requirements: Rank 7
              Location: Gas Stand LUCHACA
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$2000 per car filled up
    
              Fill up cars with gas.
    
              It really does not get much simpler than this. Use the B Button to
              fill up a car to its desired capacity. It is okay if you overfill,
              but if you underfill, then the car won't go towards your total. 
              Also, avoid completely overfilling the meter or else Travis will
              set himself on fire. Okay okay, it's fine to do that a few times 
              just for laughs. 
    
         Mine Sweeping ~
         =-----------= 
              Requirements: Rank 6
              Location: Body Slam Beach
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$2000 for each mine removed
    
              Clean up the mines buried in the beach. A bonus will be paid due to
              how dangerous the work is. 
    
              You're armed with your trusty beam katana and a metal detector to
              locate mines. Walk around until the metal detector starts to beep.
              Move toward the noise (it's like digging for treasure!) and wait 
              for the button prompt to appear on-screen. When it does, press the
              A Button to unearth the buried mine. There's no point to pressing
              the A Button until the prompt comes up, so don't waste your time
              trying that. Also, avoid stepping on mines (it's kind of funny the 
              first time) because if you blow yourself up too many times, the 
              mission will end. 
    
         Graffiti Cleaning ~
         =---------------=
              Requirements: Rank 5
              Location: Within Santa Destroy
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$2000 for each removed
    
              Erase graffiti from the walls.
    
              The dash skill (learned from Lovikov) is absolutely necessary in
              this mission if you're looking to rank favorably. There are ten tags
              in all that you need to wipe off the walls. In order to reach all
              of them in three minutes, you'll need the dash skill. When you are
              next to a graffiti tag, press the A Button and swing the indicated
              remote on the screen. After shaking both the Nunchuk and Wiimote,
              the graffiti will have been wiped off. Run between the yellow dots
              on the map (signify the graffiti tags) and wipe off every one to 
              complete the task. 
    
         Meow Meow ~
         =-------=
              Requirements: Rank 4
              Location: Within Santa Destroy
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$3000 for each cat found
    
              Capture the escaped cats. use some Foxtail grass to attract the cats'
              attention!
    
              This has got to be the cutest job ever! The little cats (they're so
              little that I had trouble finding them at first) can be found laying
              around the area. They're marked on your map. When you approach one,
              press the A Button and perform the indicated motions on-screen to
              move the Foxtail grass in front of them. Then, press the indicated
              button to snag the kitty. To improve your cat-nabbing, consider 
              dashing from cat to cat. 
    
         Scorpion Extermination ~
         =--------------------=
              Requirements: Rank 3
              Location: Atomic Drop Ward
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$3000 for each scorpion
    
              Take care of the poisonous scorpions. Put them into the basket on
              your back to safely remove them. 
    
              This is a fairly annoying mission. The scorpions are scattered 
              around the field. They aren't marked on your map, so you'll have to
              seek them out on your own. The key thing to remember is that the
              scorpions CAN sting you. If you're new to this job, then you'll
              probably get stung quite a few times. The scorpions won't actively
              try to sting Travis, but if his foot touches one, then it's going to
              be a sting. When that happens, you have 30 seconds to return to the
              client or else the mission ends. To collect a scorpion, just
              approach one cautiously (dashing into one will probably get you
              stung) and hit the A Button as soon as the prompt comes up. Then,
              just swing your Wiimote up to throw the scorpion in the bag. The
              scorpions unfortunately are very unpredictable. Also, be careful
              when picking up scorpions in large groups. Another scorpion can 
              easily come up to Travis and sting him while he's picking up some
              other one. 
    
         Bike Jump ~
         =-------=
              Requirements: Rank 2
              Location: Iron Claw Point
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: As stipulated by contest rules
     
              Jump your bike off the Point. Try to fly as far as possible. 
    
              The Bike Jump is a quick and easy job. It basically consists of you
              jumping the bike off of the ramp at the end of Iron Claw Point. It
              may take a few tries to fully get the hang of things. First off, you
              have to go to the client, who is about a few hundred yards away from
              the actual ramp. Why they placed him so far away is beyond me. 
              Anyway, upon talking to him, get back on the Schpeltiger and follow
              the line of balls (I have no idea what they are) to the ramp. As for
              the actual jumping: use the boost when the Schpeltiger is fairly
              close (not too far away that it runs out before you hit the ramp,
              obviously) and flick the Wiimote up as soon as the Schpeltiger hits
              the ramp. The reason you don't want to flick it too late is because
              there's a momentary delay when the Schpeltiger jumps. If you did it
              right, you'll sail well over 2000 yards.

             --- 7. Free Fight Missions ---                                 [7000]
    ===============================================================================
    
    Free Fight missions are unlocked by acquiring gold rankings in jobs at the Job
    Center. These are essentially deathmatches pitting you against a huge number
    of enemies. 
    
    Free Fights are tough because taking just one hit will fail the mission. For
    that reason, you can't fight recklessly. Furthermore, failing a Free Fight 
    mission will cause it to disappear for a period of time, preventing you from
    immediately replaying.
    
    Note that since some of the Free Fight missions are basically recycled 
    versions of previous Free Fights, I'll occasionally repeat strategies for
    similarly positioned enemies. 
    
    [-----------------------------------------------------------------------------]
    
         Free Fight Mission #1 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$30000
    
              Wave One: Consists of three regular goons. You have plenty of room
               to maneuver, so take advantage of the space by isolating each
               enemy. Kill one and then move on to the next. Rinse and repeat.
    
              Wave Two: Consists of three regular goons. Just use the same
               strategy as you did for wave one. The enemies are fitted with
               different weapons, but it shouldn't be much of an issue. 
    
              Wave Three: Consists of six regular goons. This segment relies more
               on fancy blocking and evading to avoid enemy attacks. Keep your
               guard up and avoid breaking out into messy combos. Darkstep to 
               slow down time and then slash while the enemies are vulnerable.
               As always, watch your back and quickly use emergency evade when
               you're in danger.
    
         Free Fight Mission #2 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$35000
     
              Wave One: Consists of three regular enemies. If you can successfully
               darkstep one while the three are grouped together, you could easily
               kill all three with a single death blow. If not, then it should 
               leave the remaining goons with little health remaining.
    
              Wave Two: Consists of five regular enemies. Again, try to group them
               all together to set them up for a massive death blow. If you're
               given some time, execute a charged slash. 
    
              Wave Three: Consists of one regular enemy and one enemy with a beam
               katana. Focus on quickly darkstepping and killing the regular  
               enemy first. Then, engage the beam katana-wielding goon. He should
               not be much trouble if you keep your guard up. As always, be wary
               of his unblockable charged attack and quickly roll away when he 
               uses it. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #3 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$40000
     
              Wave One: Consists of nine regular enemies, all ready to charge at
               you immediately. This Free Fight Mission is fairly easy because 
               there is only wave of enemies and all of them are grouped together.
               This means that you need to keep your guard up at ALL TIMES to 
               survive. Start off the battle with a jumping slash or a charged
               slash to knock a good number of the enemies off their feet. Then
               just work through the rest of the crowd as you normally would. 
               Use the darkstepping technique to create opportunities to strike.
               
         Free Fight Mission #4 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$40000
    
              Wave One: The "schoolchildren" start in three groups. The first 
               group is right in front of you when you start. It consists of four 
               melee units. If you have time before they manage to reach you, 
               charge up your katana and unleash a charged attack. If not, then 
               you'll have to wait for an opening to perform a jumping slash 
               attack or something along those lines. Once you finish off the 
               four, turn left and walk to the end of the stone path. 
    
               There are three melee units here. They shouldn't pose much of a 
               problem. Try to land a jumping slash on the closest enemy to
               quickly eliminate one threat. Then, deal with the remaining two. 
               Fight cautiously, but don't waste too much time because the final
               leg of this Free Fight Mission will take up the most time. 
    
               With those three dead, make your way to the opposite end of the
               schoolyard, where two beam katanas and two regular melee units 
               await. You'll want to land a jumping slash attack on one of the
               beam katana wielders and then focus on the other beam katana 
               wielder. Dodge any charge attacks they throw at you and kill them
               swiftly and efficiently. The remaining two goons are easily dealt
               with once the beam katana wielders are dead. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #5 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$50000
    
              Wave One: This is a fairly easy Free Fight Mission because all of
               the enemies are scattered around. This means you won't get 
               overwhelmed. I find that the most efficient way to go around is
               by circling in a clockwise direction. At the start, one or two
               enemies will approach you. Take care of both of them and then turn
               left toward the truck. There's a beam katana wielder here (the only
               one in the entire Free Fight Mission) who you should eliminate
               quickly. Watch out for his charge attack, and you should be fine.
               
               Turn in behind the truck and kill the enemy hiding there. Then, 
               head toward the middle of the stage, where three enemies are 
               standing. Approach them and try to lure away one or two of them to
               make things easier. After those three are dead, proceed to the
               other side. Kill the enemy stationed in front of the truck and then
               the remaining enemies on the other side of the truck. In the end,
               you will have killed 12 enemies. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #6 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 2 minutes
              Reward: LB$50000
    
              Wave One: Consists of three regular goons. You have plenty of room
               to maneuver, so take advantage of the space by isolating each
               enemy. Kill one and then move on to the next. Rinse and repeat.
    
              Wave Two: Consists of three regular goons. Just use the same
               strategy as you did for wave one. The enemies are fitted with
               different weapons, but it shouldn't be much of an issue. 
    
              Wave Three: This wave is the toughest one. One of the enemies is
               equipped with a beam katana and the other is equipped with a pistol.
               The remaining two are your typical melee units. Isolate the beam
               katana wielder first, and try to kill him quickly with a jumping
               slash. Be wary of the gunner because he can hit you from a range
               while you're busy piecing away at another goon. At the end of this
               free fight, you will have killed ten enemies. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #7 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$60000
    
              Wave One: The first two enemies in front of you make up the first
               wave. They're equipped with melee weapons. At this juncture in the
               game, defeat them should be no problem. 
    
              Wave Two: The second wave will immediately pop up out of the sand as
               you move down the beach. Unfortunately, you may have provoked them
               to pop out while still fighting wave one. One has a pistol and the
               other has a melee weapon. If possible, try to take down the gunner
               first. If you can't get to him immediately (he will obviously run
               away), save him for later. 
    
              Wave Three: Wave three is identical to wave two. Again, watch the
               one wielding a pistol and avoid getting shot from a distance. This
               means you'll have to have your guard up always! I can't stress how
               important guarding is in this situation. Try to kill these two as
               swiftly as possible before moving on. 
    
              Wave Four: Again, two enemies will emerge from the sand. One of them
               has a melee weapon and the other wields a pistol. Use the same 
               strategy as the previous two. 
    
              Wave Five: This one is the toughest. Two enemies with dark beam 
               katanas will jump up from the sand. Avoid any energy beams they
               fire off at you and close the distance. Quickly execute a jumping
               slash on one of them (make sure you do not jump into an enemy blow)
               and finish with a jumping down attack. Then, work on killing the
               other. In the end, you will have killed ten enemies. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #8 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$70000
    
              Wave One: I find that the most efficient way to go around is by 
               circling in a clockwise direction. At the start, one or two
               enemies will approach you. Take care of both of them and then turn
               left toward the truck. There are a few more enemies here who you 
               should eliminate quickly. 
               
               Turn in behind the truck and kill the enemy hiding there. Then, 
               head toward the middle of the stage, where three enemies are 
               standing. Approach them and try to lure away one or two of them to
               make things easier. After those three are dead, proceed to the
               other side. Kill the enemy stationed in front of the truck and then
               the remaining enemies on the other side of the truck. 
    
              Wave Two: Two beam katana wielders will appear near the center of
               the area. Perform a jumping slash on the first and then execute a
               down attack. Deal with the last one any way you see fit. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #9 ~
         =-------------------=
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$80000
    
              Wave One: This free fight is tough. All of the enemies are armed 
               with pistols, making them dangerous yet predictable at the same 
               time. Luckily, they're all scattered around the map in groups. At 
               the very start, approach the group right in front of you with your 
               guard up. Obviously, keeping your guard up anytime you're not 
               attacking is the most important. The enemies will likely shoot at 
               you and run away. Try to move them into the right side of the level
               first. Simply follow them until they run themselves into a wall.
               Try to group two or three enemies together. When you do manage to 
               get up close, wait until they stop firing to reload. Then, slash 
               them apart. Alternatively, you can simply darkstep them while 
               they're firing. This method may be more safer should there be any 
               other enemies in the immediate vicinity attempting to shoot you 
               too. 
    
               The right side of the bus station has six enemies to defeat. When
               you're finished with them, take the time to recharge your katana's
               battery. Blocking bullets can take a significant chunk out of the
               power supply. It's extremely important that you do this while behind
               the cover of the buses. Then, move to the other side of the bus
               station and repeat the process. My recommendation is to push them
               into the little niche at the upper-left. This reduces the room that
               the thugs have to move. Defeat all ten to finish this free fight
               mission. 
    
         Free Fight Mission #10 ~
         =--------------------=
              Time Limit: 3 minutes
              Reward: LB$90000
    
              Wave One: This free fight mission is almost identical to Free Fight
               Mission #9. The only difference is that all of the enemies are
               equipped to submachine guns as opposed to pistols. Still, that
               does not really make the fight all that more difficult. You'll have
               to rely more on strafing and dodging. 
    
               Start off with the right side of the station first. The enemies 
               here are grouped closer together. Strafe and dodge to get to the
               submachine gunner. When you're up close, wait for him to stop 
               firing and then use a jumping slash to knock him off his feet. The
               good thing about these types of enemies is that they are usually
               stationary and oftentimes don't even try to aim the gun at you. Use
               the jumping slash technique to kill the enemies on the right side.
               Afterwards, move to the other side and do the same. 
    
               If you're having trouble with the battery draining on you (from
               blocking bullets), the Energy Saving upgrade for the Tsubaki Mk-III
               will prove to be a good investment.

    You can "purchase" exercises at the Office of Thunder Dragon. The three
    different exercises are designed to increase a certain stat, which in turn
    will render you more powerful and resilient in battle. 
    
    As you progress through the game, more exercises will become available to you.
    Note that each succeeding exercise costs more than the previous exercise.
    
         Dumbbells ~
         =-------=
              Dumbbell exercises will increase the amount of slashes you can
              perform in a single combo. 
    
              To successfully perform this exercise, you must complete 30 
              repetitions within 30 seconds. Alternate raising your Wiimote and
              Nunchuk to pull it off. 
    
              Prices of the exercise will triple with each new one (except for the
              last Dumbbell exercise, which is LB$40000).

              Cost: LB$98000
              Description: A beam katana created by Naomi. The prototype model.
    
              The Tsubaki has a few advantages over the Blood Berry. For one
              thing, it's noticeably stronger, taking off more health per hit than
              the Blood Berry could ever hope to achieve. Also, its strike has the
              potential to make an enemy dizzy, much like a beat attack. 
    
              Upgrades:
              + Accelerator (LB$29800) - A sensor that can locate buried treasure
                 when attached to the handle of the beam katana.
              + Power Up-I (LB$29800) - Exchanges the crystal parts inside the
                 beam katana with purer crystals to greatly increase its output.
              + Energy Saving-I (LB$29800) - Beam Katana Energy Saving part for
                 Tsubaki. Adds a motherboard to the beam katana itself, increasing 
                 energy efficiency. 
    
         Tsubaki Mk-II ~
         =-----------=
              Cost: LB$148000
              Description: A beam katana created by Naomi. Beam emitter and 
                           receiver can now operate simultaneously. 
    
              If you have a knack for death blows, then the Tsubaki Mk-II is for
              you. It's quite slow (it looks really bulky, doesn't it?), but it
              makes up for that with power. On most enemies, the Tsubaki Mk-II can
              kill within four hits. Due to its multiple blades, the death blow
              can often hit multiple enemies grouped together, making it ideal for
              clearing out huge mobs. 
    
              Upgrades:
              + Power Up-II (LB$49800) - Power Up Parts for Tsubaki Mk-II. 
                 Exchanges the crystal parts inside the beam katana with purer 
                 crystals to greatly increase its output.
              + Energy Saving-II (LB$49800) - Beam Katana Energy Saving part for
                 Tsubaki Mk-II. Adds a motherboard to the beam katana itself, 
                 increasing energy efficiency. 
    
         Tsubaki Mk-III
         =------------=
              Cost: LB$498000
              Description: A beam katana created by Naomi. The finished model. 
    
              The Tsubaki Mk-III is the most expensive out of all the katanas.
              It's definitely well worth the cost. The Tsubaki Mk-III is flashy 
              and the swings and blows are stylishly executed. The death blows on 
              this thing are amazing, oftentimes killing all enemies in the 
              immediate vicinity even if they're not directly hit by the katana in 
              the process. The low charge attack is absolutely devastating against
              groups of enemies. It can decimate even the biggest of mobs easily.
              With the purchase of the Energy Saving upgrade (expensive as it is), 
              you will no longer have to worry about charging the battery. 
    
              Upgrades:
              + Power Up-III (LB$99800) - Power Up Parts for Tsubaki Mk-III. 
                 Exchanges the crystal parts inside the beam katana with purer 
                 crystals to greatly increase its output.
              + Energy Saving-III (LB$999999) - Beam Katana Energy Saving part for
                 Tsubaki Mk-III. Set this into the heart of the motherboard inside
                 the Beam Katana, and it will never have to be recharged again.

    --+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+--+-
    
    Lovikov, a Russian drunk at the Gold Town bar, offers to teach you seven 
    different techniques if you can bring him Lovikov Balls. Collecting seven 
    allows you learn one technique. In order to learn them all, you must get all
    49 Lovikov Balls, which can be found strewn throughout the town of Santa
    Destroy. 
    
    For locations, consult the "Lovikov Ball Locations" section. After talking to
    Lovikov for the first time, all Lovikov Balls will be marked with an orange
    dot on your mini-map.
    
    The techniques are as follows:
    
       Memory of Three: Displays the position of enemies on the mini-map.
       - It's exactly as its descriptions says. No More Heroes is not really a 
         tactical game though, so the overall usefulness of this technique is
         questionable. Still, it's a worthy advantage to have. 
       
       Memory of Demon: Allows a "jumping slash" to be performed by shaking the
        Nunchuk.
       - A jumping slash, which can be performed by shaking the Nunchuk, is a
         devastating attack that can hit from long ranges. It's unblockable, 
         making it very useful against regular enemies (especially in those Free
         Fight missions). 
    
       Memory of Child: Allows a "dash" to be performed by pressing the B Button.
       - This technique has uses outside of battle. By pressing the B Button,
         Travis can dash around until his stamina gauge runs out. 
    
       Memory of Woman: Extends Dark Side Mode time limit.
       - This technique is self-explanatory. All dark side modes will have a 
         longer time limit, giving you more time to kill, kill, and kill!
    
       Memory of Mask: Increase the range of your "grab".
       - The Memory of Mask gives Travis a slightly longer reach when he attempts
         to grab dazed foes. If you have an affinity for suplexing enemies to
         death, learn this technique as early as you can. 
    
       Memory of Tattoo: Earn bonuses based on your rank.
       - When this technique is active, a "Max Chain" bonus will be awarded to you
         at the end of every rankings fight. The payout depends on your efficiency
         in battle. 
    
       Memory of White: Allows a "jumping down attack" to be performed.
       - A jumping down attack is essentially a ranged down attack. If an enemy is
         too far away for a regular down attack, you can hit the A Button to jump
         and close the gap.

    ===============================================================================
    
    Lovikov Balls can be found strewn throughout Santa Destroy in various
    locations. After you talk with Lovikov at Gold Town, all Lovikov Balls will be
    marked on your map with an orange dot.
    
    Once you collect seven, you can return them to Lovikov in exchange for a new
    technique. The techniques are described in more detail in the "Lovikov's
    Techniques" section.
    
    [-----------------------------------------------------------------------------]
    
         Lovikov Ball 01 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: It is located in the small alcove by the No More Heroes
                        motel. After walking down the stairs from Travis' room,
                        walk straight into the wall and turn right to find it.
    
         Lovikov Ball 02 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This Lovikov Ball is in the same lot as Naomi's Lab. Near
                        the entrance are some huge crates next to a truck. Check
                        behind the crates. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 03 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: North of Naomi's Laboratory is a bridge. Go there and you
                        should notice (on the southern side of the bridge) a
                        wooden slat fence and some trucks and crates beyond it.
                        Follow the fence south until you find an opening at the
                        end. The ball is between two crates. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 04 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: Head to the very northeast corner of Santa Destroy. This
                        Lovikov Ball is located at the base of the large grey

         =-------------=
              Location: This Lovikov Ball is located at the northwest corner of 
                        town near a single truck behind by a high fence. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 07 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: You will find this Lovikov Ball at the north end of Santa 
                        Destroy somewhere in the middle. North of the large grey
                        warehouses are two trucks. You'll find this behind one of
                        them.
    
         Lovikov Ball 08 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: At the north end of town, there's a large complex walled
                        off by a fairly low red brick wall. Find an entrance into
                        the area and search for this ball in a narrow space
                        between a building and the red wall. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 09 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This Lovikov Ball is located in the same complex as 
                        Lovikov Ball #8. It can be found behind a brown crate next
                        to a truck. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 10 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This one is located at the north end of town, directly 
                        south of Lovikov Ball 06. It can be found underneath a 
                        security station leading into what appears to be a
                        industrial factory of some sort. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 11 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: At the north end of town, there's an apartment complex 
                        decorated with what appear to renditions of Easter Island
                        statues. This ball can be found in the shade of a tree in
                        the complex. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 12 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: Southeast of Lovikov Ball 11 is a basketball court, which
                        is also the location of Free Fight Mission #2. This 
                        Lovikov Ball can be found sitting right there on the 
                        court. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 13 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This one is located north of the bridge by Iron Claw
                        Point. It can be found sitting between two grey walls in
                        an open, paved area. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 14 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: North of Iron Claw point is an auto dealer and motor shop.
                        Find this Lovikov Ball sitting behind one of the display
                        cars. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 15 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This Lovikov Ball can be found north of the bridge by
                        Iron Claw point. It's sitting at the western-most section
                        of the town between the sea (unfortunately, there's a wall
                        blocking the view of the sea) and a red building. 
     
         Lovikov Ball 16 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This one is directly south of Lovikov Ball 15. It's also
                        sitting between the wall and a red building. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 17 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: Directly north of the bridge by Iron Claw Point is a white
                        building along the street. This Lovikov Ball can be found
                        behind the mesh fence by the aforementioned building. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 18 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: Oh man, this one is a toughie. Find it at Iron Claw Point
                        by the red ramp. 
    
         Lovikov Ball 19 ~
         =-------------=
              Location: This one can be found directly south of the ATM. It's in
