Glitches

  • Free Health at Save Point in Ko-op Mode

    For free health in Ko-op mode, activate the save point multiple times. Each time you activate the save point, your health will increase. You don't have to save each time you activate it for this to work. You can get almost full health from doing this many times.

  • Infinite Experience at Wu Shi Academy - Single Player

    In the Wu Shi Academy stage (in single player mode) play to the part where Cage opens the armory for you. Instead of going and getting the bladed weapon and the health increase, stay in the area with Cage. This section infinitely spawns Tarkata in groups of three. You can combo one, Fatality another, and finish off the third with Cage. You can build up a decent combo and every Tarkata you Fatality gives you over 500 experience. You can max out a character fairly quickly, and this is only the second stage of the game!

  • Infinite experience in Ko-op mode

    In Ko-op mode, go to the Living Forest and go to an area with clay golems. The best area is probably at the door in the area with the waterfall (right near the door that leads to smoke). Kill or knock away one of the golems and try to leave the other one unharmed. Now, without destroying the unharmed ones shield, trap it against a wall and have both players keep tapping an attack button (X works the best). The golems shield will not break and it will not lose any health. As long as both players are attacking the Ko-op points will keep going up. After every 10 ko-op points both players get a larger and larger experience boost. Just keep attacking and your experience will never stop going up.

  • Free Experience

    Tired of having to constantly build high level combos to get the experience points for that new move? Keep your ears open and pay attention.

    Whenever you reach a multiple of 10 in your combo meter, notice that the announcer will say something complimentary (ex. "Outstanding," "Superb," etc.) However, at random times, you will hear the legendary "TOASTY" shout instead of the announcer. As soon as you hear the yell, press START; if done properly, the screen will flash "TOASTY! 1000 Pts." and you will receive an automatic 1000 Experience Points for free!
