    >PROLOGUE
    The evil Dark Dragon Blade...
    A legendary sword, said to have been carved out of the bones of a Black
    Dragon, it brought plague and death to the world during the age of ancient
    myth. It has been sealed by those of the Dragon Lineage since the dawn of
    histroy becase of its incredible capacity for evil, made possible by the
    souls of the vanquished Black Dragons that dwell within it. It is said that if
    the Blade's seal were to be broken, it would gather the hatred and evil of
    mankind and confer it upon the one who weilds it, transforming him into
    the Devil incarnate; however not even those of the Dragon Lineage who pro-
    tect it know the true extent of its power...
    
    The Dragon Sword...
    Another weapon protected by the Dragon Lineage since ancient times.
    This sword, which is said to have been used by the Ancient warriors to slay the
    Black Dragons, is now handed down from generation to generation in the
    Dragon Lineage.
    And now, the Dragon Sword is gripped firmly in the hands
    of a young Ninja, Ryu Hayabusa...

    Ninja Gaiden has various weapons. Some are close range, with
    short or long range. Some moves need to be "bought", one that are
    found will be designated with "scroll"and others need certain
    motions to be implemented, ones I know of need a full circle motion,
    (mostly ultimate techniques) they will be designated by a astric *.
    Certain moves, are avalible no matter what weapon you have equipped,
    ones I know of are...
    
    Reverse Wind: Left Trigger + Right or Left on Thumbstick
    Wind Path: While Jumping Near Enemy A
    Wind Run: X + A
    Flying Bird Flip: While on Wall A
    
    P.S. If you look at the bottom of a weapon (melee) you will
    see these 4 moves at the bottom, if I didn't include some,
    please e-mail me at the e-mail adresses in the "Conclusion"
    section.

    even MORE powerful. Heres what you've been waiting for, the moves list!

    Probably my favorite weapon. When you first buy it for the
    shop statue (can be first obtained in chapter 2), it is the
    weakest weapon in the game. After 7 level and roughly 105
    thousand essence later, it becomes the Unlabored Flawlessness,
    probably the most powerful weapon in the game. Here the move
    list!

    ---------------------------
    
    Projectile weapons are basically weapons that you use when
    your swords cannot reach. They cant be upgraded and some
    have limited ammo. Pretty crapy I say, but the 2 with un-
    limited ammo will be used the MOST.
    
    >SHURIKENS
    To Unlock: Default at start of game.
    Ammo: Unlimited
    
    These little buggers are fast and unlimited. They are mostly
    used to break an enemies defense so you can get in with your
    slashes.
    
    >INCENDIARY SHURIKEN
    To Unlock: Found in Chapter 6
    Ammo: 15
    
    An exploding shuriken, basically. It takes roughly 3 seconds
    to detionate, then the buggers blow up taking a chunk of an
    enemies life with it. Not recommended for regular use because
    of these cost.
    
    >WINDMILL SHURIKEN
    To Unlock: Found in Tairon
    Ammo: Unlimited
    
    Yes...the windwill shuriken. A four bladed shuriken that returns
    to you when thrown. You will use it on a few bosses for a little
    extra damage too.
    
    >BOW/STRONGBOW
    To Unlock: Bow found in Chapter 2/Strongbow found in Chapter 8
    Ammo: 15
    
    The bow can be used in certain situations (check FAQs). Not
    recommended for regular use becasue of its limited ammo and
    because you have to aim.
    
    >APFSDS CORES
    To Unlock: Found in Chapter 9
    Ammo: 15
    
    Basically an extension of your bow. Made out of the core of
    tank shells, they can pierce armor. Not recommended for regular
    use because of cost (200 essence an arrow).
    
    >EXPLOSIVE ARROWS
    To Unlock: Found in Chapter 9
    Ammo: 15
    
    Basically an extension of you bow. These are basically the
    incendinary shurikens, but explode on impact. Not recommended
    for regular use becasue of cost.

    Armlets are basically there to boost Ryu's abilities. Only one
    at a time is possible, so choose wisely.

    It increases Ryu's attack power.
