A. INTRODUCTION!
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hiya! This is my very first actual FAQ I’m making. 
Please don't scold me if I suck or anything. This FAQ is
basically what I think of Nobunaga in WO, arguably the
best character on the horse. 

About Me:
I love playing all types of games. I like to always be 
with anyone, even online. Feel Free to add me on MSN if 
you wish. (Details at last section). I'd love to also
help anyone in need. (Details at last section)

Shall we begin?

C. ABOUT NOBUNAGA ODA IN WO
-----------------------------------------------------------
In Warriors Orochi, Nobunaga Oda, the Demon King, wants to
take down Orochi, the demon. He is aided by Hideyoshi 
Toyotomi and Mitsuhide Akechi (of all the people..). 
Throughout the story, he gains valuable allies, like Guan 
Ping, and amass an army rivaling Orochi.

If you need to know about Nobunaga Oda’s history, you can
type “Nobunaga Oda” in wikipedia. There’s very detailed 
information about him there.


D. UNLOCKING NOBUNAGA ODA
-----------------------------------------------------------
That is a very difficult task to do, unless you already
have a copy of this game in your PS2/Xbox360. Load game
and there you have it! He's unlocked at the start!

E. NOBUNAGA'S MOVESET
-----------------------------------------------------------
Normal Attacks
S       - Diagonal left slash.
SS      - S+ Right horizontal slash.
SSS     - SS+ Diagonal left slash again.
Sx8     - SSS+ 4 alternating diagonal upwards left and               
right slashes ending with a finishes with a 360 degrees 
slash.

Jump +S - A downward angled horizontal slash to the right.

Run  +S - A horizontal slash to the right.

Charge Attacks
TTT     - Nobunaga lifts himself up, charges a ball of dark 
energy in his left palm and sends it to the ground, causing 
a shockwave to the area in front of him. Pressing T will 
make Nobunaga lift himself up higher, causing a bigger area 
effect and more damage.

STTT    - S+ An upward diagonal slash to the right. 
Pressing T will, if it hits an opponent, Nobunaga will leap 
into the air do a 360 degrees slash and if you press T 
again, continue slashing the enemy 4-5 more times and then 
finally slashes them downward into the ground which sends 
any enemies near flying backwards.

SSTTT   - SS+ Nobunaga does a 720 degrees slash. Pressing T 
would make him jump a small height and punch the ground 
with dark energy. Pressing T one last time would make 
Nobunaga do a drill attack like M. Bison in SF games with 
dark energy.

SSSTTT  - SSS+ Nobunaga charges up dark energy and blasts 
it like Nightmare in SC3. Pressing T (up to two times) 
would make him charge longer but deal more damage.

Jump +S - Nobunaga thrusts his sword downwards to the 
ground.(Great with STTT)

On Horse:
S       - He slashes right...
SS      - ..and again..
SSS     - ...yet again..
Sx8     - ...and 4-5 more times to the right.
ST      - S+ Upward right slash.
SST     - SS+ Downward right slash.
SSST    - SSS+ Charges dark energy and releases.(like in 
SSSTTT)
T       - Horse uses forward two legs and whacks the ground.
Run + T - Horse jumps up and slams down.

R1 specials:
R1      - Nobunaga quickly releases a small dark energy orb 
which reacts to charge attacks.
S+R1    - Faster version of STTT, with more slashes while 
in mid-air.
SS+R1   - Again, a faster version of SSTTT.
SSS+R1  - Faster version of SSSTTT.

Musou:
O       - Nobunaga does very fast left to right slashes, 
while levitating. He ends with a diagonal slash to the 
right with a shockwave.

True Musou
O       - He starts off by saying "Do you dare to resist 
me?". Nobunaga does very fast left to right slashes, while 
levitating.  Then, he does two 360 degrees slashes to the 
left and right, does a slash to the right and ends with a 
diagonal slash to the right with a shockwave, saying "then 
you dare to die!"

Others:
L1      - Block
L1 +Left Analog Stick - Block while moving
(Same applies to the horse)

H. NOBUNAGA'S SPECIAL EFFECTS
-----------------------------------------------------------

These are the rough explanations of the Special
Effects in the game.

Fire    - Damages enemy until he/she touches the ground.
        Does not work with Ice.

Ice     - Target freezes for a while.
        Does not works best with Air element.

Bolt    - Increased range of attacks.

Flash   - Breaks guard.

Slay    - Increased damage to generals, insta-kills to 
peons.

Drain   - Heal when you attack opponents.

Absorb  - Replenish Musou when you attack opponents.
 
Air     - Extra damage against airborne targets.
        Not a good idea to use with Ice element.

Brave   - Extra attack power against an Officer.

Range   - Increased range. Does not work on some.

Multi   - Clones appear and deal extra damage.

Agility - Increased attack speed. Bugged on some chars.

Might   - Increase the attack power.

Rage    - Doubles damage when low in health.

Basically, 
this is what the skill would compare with Nobunaga's move 
set:
Fire    - Don't bother.
Ice     - Moves do a lot of moving, not so useful.
Bolt    - Must to increase range, duh.
Flash   - Must for almost every  char.
Slay    - Must for almost every char.
Drain   - Only useful to keep him alive longer.
Absorb  - Good with Tech character.
Air     - Good for one with quite a couple Air skills.
Brave   - Other better skills.
Range   - Doesn't affect.
Multi   - Quite useful.
Agility - Few moves will be bugged.
Might   - Useful.
Rage    - Useless.

My recommendation for the selection would be:
 1. Bolt, Flash, Slay, Drain, Absorb, Air, Multi, Agility
 : May looks like it lack of strength, but with SSSTTT move, 
   will able to kill generics in one hit.

 2. Bolt, Flash, Slay, Air, Brave, Multi, Agility, Might
 : Maximum Strength, again with SSSTTT.

-----------------------------------------------------------
I. NOBUNAGA'S PERSONAL ITEM :
(Taken from KW's Mr. Honda Personal Items Guide)

Nobunaga Oda (Sengoku Story 1)
• Defeat Cao Ren (before he talks).
• Rush through Guan Ping (try not to go through the castle)
• Defeat the soldiers (not generals) in the middle area.
• Defeat the soldiers on the left side & top left (where 
Mitsunari + generics are), try to prevent them from meeting 
with Huang Zhong, you can defeat the generics but do not 
defeat Mitsunari.
• After you defeat 500 meet with Huang Zhong.
Note: You should be able to get 500 by defeating the 
soldiers in the middle area, west side & top left, just 
remember do not defeat the guard captains.
