    I. INTRODUCTION                                                 [NBInt]
    =======================================================================
    
    Ninja Blade is an action game that borrows heavily from Ninja Gaiden.
    If you haven't had enough ninja killing action from Ninja Gaiden 2
    recently, then Ninja Blade is right up your alley. It relies more
    heavily on more obscure things like quick time events and such, and
    is somewhat of a pale imitator ompared to Ninja Gaiden 2, but it's
    still a fun little game that isn't too bad for a boring Saturday.
    
    =======================================================================
    II. HOW TO PLAY                                                 [NBHTP]
    =======================================================================
    
    Ninja Blade is pretty straightforward. If you played Ninja Gaiden 
    before, you'll feel right at home. However, it does have a few
    wrinkles to make things interesting...
    
    QUICK TIME EVENTS
    
    Quick time events, hereafter known as QTE, are events where you have
    to press certain button combinations during cutscenes to continue.
    Unlike in other games, QTEs are a big part of the game. I've listed
    all the QTEs. If it's just a button press, it'll just be something like
    X or A. However, if you have to keep pressing the button, I'll either
    say rapidfire (in the case that the button is random) or use
    parentheses around the button, such as (X). Any direction (I.E. RIGHT,
    LEFT, DOWN, UP) is done with the left analog stick.
    
    NINJA VISION
    
    Ninja vision allows you to see certain hidden objects or paths you
    normally can't see. Use it by pressing the LB button.
    
    CONTROLS
    
    X - Normal Attack
    Y - Ranged Attack
    A - Jump
    B - Ninjutsu
    RB - Switch Ninjutsu
    RT - Dash
    LB - Ninja Vision
    LT - Block
    Directional pad - Switch Weapons

    1. MISSION 1                                                    [NBM01]
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    When Ken jumps out of the plane, you'll have to press X, X, Y, and Y.
    Now you'll be in control of Ken. Defeat the three enemies here (you
    can do it rather easily) and then another three enemies will appear.
    Defeat them and you'll have another QTE. Press A, then A again. You'll
    have to now fight a giant enemy.
    
    The Giant will swing in a punch, dash towards him to dodge, hit him a
    few times, then dash away from him. Keep doing this. When he is about
    to hit the ground to attack, dodge to either side. Sometimes the Giant
    will be surrounded by flames. Kill the enemies that come out and
    eventually the flames will stop and you can continue attacking. These
    three are the Giant's only attacks so you should be able to dispatch it
    without too much trouble. When it's about to die press X while you're
    near it to deal the finishing blow, which involves a QTE. Press X, X,
    A, then Y to defeat the Giant.
    
    Go right and jump up the platforms. Eventually you'll learn to wallrun.
    Perform the wallrun and then go left. You'll find some crates you can
    break. While you are here, run along the wall and turn the corner on
    the right. You'll find more crates here. Break them and you'll find
    a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Now go back to the main path. Defeat the enemies
    and you'll have to deal with a QTE. Press DOWN, and go forward across
    the bars to get to the next platform. Keep going and climb up the wall.
    Soon you'll find more enemies. Defeat them and move heard. Wipe out the
    fire with your Ninjutsu, and wall run to the next platform. Keep going
    and put out any flames you see, while wallrunning to the next few
    platforms. You'll find some crates you can destroy for some items.
    Eventually you'll have to fight some enemies. Kill them all, and the
    Giant will come after you again for a QTE. Press B, A, DOWN, then UP.
    
    Now you have to fight a Giant on fire. Use your Ninjutsu to put out
    the fire the run in and hit him a few times. Eventually the fire will
    come back up, so dash away when you've got a few good hits in. After
    a while of this, the whole area wll be set on fire. Use your Ninjutsu
    to put out as much fire as you can, and continue the attack cycle. When
    the Giant is near death, go to it and press Y for a QTE. press UP,
    DOWN, X, X, Y, X, X, then Y. After this another ATE will occur and you
    will need to press UP.
    
    Now keep running while holding down RT, then press A at the end of the
    hallway. You'll be going down the side of a building now, so be
    careful. At the end of it you'll fight a giant spider in a QTE. Press
    B, A, A, A, then Y. When you're safe you'll gain the [[TWIN FALCON
    BLADES]]. Equip them and kill the bats incoming. More enemies will
    come afterwards. Kill them with your normal sword. Now go to the edge
    of the building and press A to go to the next one. You'll find some
    barrels here, one of which contains a [[CHI PIECE]], another of which
    contains a [[SHINOBI MOJI]], and yet another of which contains an
    [[EMBLEM]].
    
    Now, climb up the wall to the next building. Defeat the enemies here,
    but be careful of the fireballs being thrown your way. When you're
    close to the big bad here, you'll have to do a QTE. Press A, X, LEFT,
    A, X, Y, UP, Y, A, Y, then B. Now you'll have the [[STONERENDER SWORD]]
    in your inventory. You'll have to fight some more enemies, but they
    should be easy prey with your new sword. Another wave of enemies will
    come, and when you defeat them a cutscene will occur. It will end in a
    QTE where you must press Y.
    
    You'll see a cracked wall. Use the Stonerender to break it, and go
    through. There are some barrels with life powerups below if you're
    hurting. If not, do the wallrun jump. When you have to jump across
    walls, drop down to the platform and use the Stonerender to destroy
    the nearby wall. It will lead to some crates, one of which contains
    the [[PIN STRIPE OUTFIT]], an alternate costume. Now go back up and
    run across the walls. You'll see some barrels that you can break open.
    GO to the next platform and another QTE will happen. Press DOWN, X, A,
    X, Y, and A. Now chase after Arachne. Arachne will shoot energy waves
    at you. Move to either side to avoid the veritcal ones, and jump to
    avoid the horizontal ones. When you get close, equip the Stonrender and
    attack its legs when it slams them into the ground. When both legs are
    gone, you can attack its head. After a while a cutscene will occur, and
    end in a QTE. Press (A) to get past it. Continue this cycle. Another
    QTE will happen. Press A. The legs are guarded by either bats or flames
    so blow out the flames and start attacking the legs. You'll want to be
    careful because sometimes a leg will cause a small earthquake to hit
    you.  When you destroy three legs, attack Arachne's body. When its
    life is gone, press A to start the finishing QTE. Press X, (A), (Y),
    (A), Y, A, X, then A.
    
    That's it for this mission.
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    2. MISSION 2                                                    [NBM02]
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You'll start on a machine gun. se it to hit the monster, and watch out
    for monsters flying down at you. Keep shooting the worm monster, and
    eventually you'll trigger a QTE. There are three buttons you have to
    Press but it's random every time. After these three, press A, and A.
    Kill the enemies that appear, and another QTE will occur where you have
    to press RIGHT, then you'll have to fight another monster.
    
    This enemy uses attacks you can't see unless you use your ninja vision.
    So use it, and then keep dodging the attacks as you close in. Attack
    the enemy a few times then dash out of the way of its attack. After a
    while the enemy will try to run you over. Press Right to dodge it.
    After a while normal enemies will come to reinforce the miniboss, but
    you can take care of them easily. Keep repeating this pattern and
    the boss will start shooting energy waves at you. When its life is
    nearly gone, go towards it and press A, then X, A, A, A, Y to kill it.
    
    Another worm monster appears, so press DOWN, then Y when the QTE starts
    and when it finishes, start running away. Jump over the gaps using the
    bars, and at the edge, jump. You're sliding down the building again,
    and when you reach the bottom, another QTE will occur. Press UP, (X),
    A, then A. Now you have to fight the worm monster.
    
    First it'll shoot fireballs, then it'll roar and hit the ground. When
    it does, jump up to avoid the attack, and run in to attack it a few
    times before dashing away. keep this pattern up. Eventually the enemy
    will move. When it does it'll use attacks you can't see without ninja
    vision. Just wait them out. Wait for a chance to attack. After a while
    of this, the enemy will go down. Keep attacking it, and bats will
    appear and start attacking you. Kill the bats while dodging the mini-
    boss' attacks. The miniboss will now use a dash attack agianst you.
    Dodge it and keep attacking. Now when its life is gona, wallrun to
    the right platform, then wallrun up again and jump to the platform on
    the other side. Get near the enemy and press X, then press (A), A, UP,
    A, and A. Now you'll have to run away. Wallrun across any gaps you
    see, and when you reach the end, dodge by pressing DOWN.
    
    Now, keep running, and wallrun over the pits. You'll come to some
    platforms you can jup on. Dodge the missiles by wallrunning, then
    when it's safe, you can destroy the barrels you see to get an
    [[EMBLEM]]. Use your ninja vision here and you'll see a blue spot on a
    building. Use your Cyclone Shuriken to make an area where you can
    grapple. Climb up the building and kill the enemies there. Go up to
    the platform and kill the enemies here. There are red barrels here
    (which are explosive), so don't hit them. When you find a pit, jump
    down and you'll find some barrels. Destroy them for a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]
    item. Now, keep going and you'll see more barrels. Eventually you'll
    be shot at by the helicopter.
    
    Use the pillars to shield yourself from the bullets, all the while
    killing a group of enemies. Use a Cyclone Shuriken to reveal a grapple
    area. Go to the next building and destroy the barrels. Kill all the
    enemies here, and the boxes nearby have some items. Keep going an
    destroy the red barrels from afar, and dodge the helicopter's missiles.
    Go to the next building and kill the enemies here while dodging the
    gunfire. When the enemies are gone you can fight the helicopter.
    
    Block its gunfire, then run to it and attack it. When its life is gone,
    get near it and press A, then A, X, Y, DOWN, (A). Another QTE will
    occur, LEFT, A, RIGHT, LEFT, Y. Now you will have the Flame Shuriken.
    Press B at the QTE. Go across the bridge then use your newly acquired
    flame shuriken to burn a path through the plants. Wallrun to the next
    platform, then wallrun again. Use the Cyclone Shuriken to reveal a
    grapple point and go to the next building. When you get there destroy
    the barrels nearby for a [[CHI PIECE]].
    
    Keep going and kill the enemies here. And the edge, destroy the wall
    with the Stonerender, and destroy any red barrels from afar. Keep going
    and kill the enemies, and use ninja vision as you progress to find an
    enemy generator. Destroy it, then kill all the enemies. Nearby there
    is a breakable wall. Destroy it and go in, then destroy the barrels
    here to find the [[PINE AND CRANE]] outfit. Back in the previous room
    you will find a fence with a hole you can go through. Go through and
    kill all the enemies. Keep going and you'll find a place you can
    wallrun up. Go up the wall, and you'll be on a platform. Destroy the
    barrels here to get a [[HEALTH PIECE]].
    
    Now, look for a breakable wall in the last room, get through it, then
    destroy the plant monster with a Flame Shuriken. Go left, the wallrun
    across, and kill the enemies here. Put out the flames with your Cyclone
    Shuriken, and jump onto the platform. Climb up and kill the enemies.
    You'll see a barrel here, and inside holds a [[CHI PIECE]]. Now drop
    down and kill all the enemies, and keep moving forward. Jump down and
    press A at the QTE to land. To your front and slightly to the left side
    is a place you can wallrun up. You'll fight some enemies here. After
    killing them, destroy the barrels for a [[HEALTH PIECE]].
    
    Now drop back down and kill all the enemies here, then a QTE will occur
    where you must press A, Left, Right, X, then rapidfire a random button,
    do it again, then A, and A again.
    
    Now you will be on a platform. Kill all the enemies here, then use the
    Cyclone Shuriken and climb up the grappling point. Go to the next
    platform and move on to fight the boss, a Snail Monster.
    
    The boss is weird. It will fire stuff at you, shoot out its spiked
    tongue (!?), and shoot blue energy shots. For the second attack, dodge
    to the side and attack. For the third, jump over them and use Flame
    Shurikens to attack. Bats will come down to attack you but they are
    easily dispatched. After a while some worm monsters will appear. You
    can easily kill them after dodging their initial dash attack. As the
    boss is dying, he'll start throwing attacks you can't see without your
    ninja vision, so use it to dodge them and attack the boss whenever you
    get a chance. When its life runs out go near it, press A, then X, then
    rapidfire the random button, then A, A, A, UP, DOWN, A, B, and Y.
    
    This ends mission 2.
    
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    3. MISSION 3                                                    [NBM03]
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You'll be on another machine gun now. Shoot the monster as well as the
    crap it throws at you. Shoot the flying monsters as well, but be sure
    not to forget destroying the stuff the main baddie keeps chucking.
    When you stop, switch to missile fire and shoot everything that moves.
    Switch back to the machine gun when you start moving again, and you'll
    contend with some flying monsters as well as some vehicles. Eventually
    you'll reach a QTE. Press (X), and then the random button presses.
    After a while of killing more flying enemies, another QTE requires you
    to press Left, and A.
    
    Now for a mini boss. Shoot your missiles while taking out the flying
    mosnters with gunfire. Then you'll have to shoot missile at another
    enemy before a QTE requiring you to press UP. Now, you'll be off the
    machine gun so you can fight the miniboss. It'll shoot lightning
    spheres at you. Dodge these, and pay attention to the top of the
    screen. If there is a timer, then there will be lasers appearing soon.
    Dodge the lasers and throw Flame Shurikens at it repeatedly. It will
    go down eventually, so go in and press A, then X, RIGHT, B, DOWN, UP,
    A, A, RIGHT, X, A, A, then Y. You'll now gain [[LIGHTNING SHURIKEN]]
    and have to press B at the end of the cutscene for the QTE.
    
    You'll be in control now. Go to your left and destroy the barrels for
    a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. Kill the enemies here, and jump down to the
    platform. Wallrun across the pit and kill the enemies. Use the bars
    to get to the next building, and kill the enemies. You'll see a
    breakable wall nearby. Break through it and keep going. Destroy all
    the barrels here and you'll be able to find a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Then
    you'll find some crates with an [[EMBLEM]] inside.
    
    Now, keep going and grapple to the next building. Kill the enemies here
    and break the wall nearby with a flame shuriken, then the stonerender.
    You'll have to time your wall runs to avoid the barriers set here,
    and then use a Cyclone Shuriken to disperse the flames ahead and use
    the bar to go up. Kill the enemies and keep moving forward. Eventually
    you'll see some plants blocking the path. Use your Flame Shuriken to
    take care of them, then wallrun forward. Keep going forward and then
    you'll fight some invisible enemies. You can see them with your ninja
    vision. You'll find a breakable wall here. Destroy it, and go to the
    next building. Find the small platform to go on and then break the
    barrels for a [[CHI PIECE]].
    
    Kill the enemies and keep going. You'll find another platform to drop
    onto, and there is a breakable wall nearby. Destroy it and you'll find
    a [[HEALTH PIECE]] inside the crates. Destroy the nearby barrels for
    the [[HEARTS OUTFIT]]. Now go back and drop down. Kill the enemies
    here, put out the flames and move forward. Use the bars to reach the
    boss of the stage.
    
    The boss can use a tackling attack, which is obvious because it'll
    swipe its claw. It'll also breath poison, which you can avoid to attack
    it. After a while, there'll be a QTE where you have to rapidfire a
    random button. This will give you an opening to attack the boss. It
    will then shoot fireballs at you from a distance. When it jumps back,
    dash in for a few attacks. When the boss' life is at zero, move close
    and press A, then Y. You'll face off against another boss.
    
    When she hits the ground, be prepared to dodge some tentacle attacks.
    If she's not surrounded by fire, run in and hit here a few times. Make
    copious use of your shuriken attacks. Like the last boss she'll start
    throwing stuff at you from afar after a certain point. After she's done
    firing, she'll use her tentacle attack again, so be ready to run from
    them. When her life is gone, go near her and press A, then UP, and Y.
    
    After these two bosses, Mission 3 is complete.
    
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    4. MISSION 4                                                    [NBM04]
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You start on a machine gun, AGAIN. Here you'll have to switch between
    the machine gun and missiles when the different waves of enemies come
    at you. Use machine guns for unarmored and missiles for armored. After
    a while a plane and a helicopter will start attacking. Attack the
    helicopter with your missiles, and watch out for missiles coming from
    the helicopter. When it's gone, use ninja vision on the plane and
    you'll see its weak spots. Shoot those with missiles. Be careful of
    fire balls. After a while you'll have a QTE. Press A, RIGHT, LEFT,
    RIGHT, X, Y, RIGHT, UP, then (Y).
    
    Enemies will keep coming so kill them all. Eventually you'll need to
    go into the plane. The crates in here will hold a [[SHINOBI MOJI]],
    as well as an [[EMBLEM]]. Now go out and you'll have to kill some more
    enemies. Now go back to the other wing and kill some more enemies.
    Eventually a larger enemy will come down and the wing will be set on
    fire. Use your Cyclone Shuriken to put out the flames. Now you'll have
    to go to the other side AGAIN. Keep killing enemies and putting out
    fires. Eventually you'll have to do a QTE by pressing UP, B, A, A, and
    A.
    
    Kill off the enemies nearby, and put out the flames. Defeat the hydra
    enemy by throwing flame shurikens at it, then dodging its dashes and
    attacking it. Go near it when it's almost dead, then press A, A, X,
    RIGHT, UP, Y, then Y. After a while, press A. When you're inside the
    plane, start destroying the crates, and you'll find the [[CLOWN 
    OUTFIT]] inside one of them. I just want to say, this is the most
    ridiculous outfit I've ever seen - and I got all of God of War's
    outfits. Anyway, clear out the enemies and keep smashing crates, and
    inside one will be a [[HEALTH PIECE]].
    
    You'll have to do another QTE after all the crates are gone. Press UP
    then random button presses. Now you have to fight a helicopter. Block
    its machine gun fire, and the reflect its missiles back at it by
    attacking them with a normal attack. When the helicopter lands, rush
    over and attack it. Wait until it gets to the firing missiles part
    and repeat the process. You'll have to destroy two helicopters this
    way.
    
    Another hydra enemy will come at you. Use flame shurikens to attack
    and after a while a stronger hydra monster appears. Use your Thunder
    Shuriken on the left head and reflect the giant fireballs back at the
    right head. Once both heads are down, the center head will be your
    main focus. When is shoots an electric sphere, hit it back. You'll
    have to play tennis with this sphere but after a while a QTE will
    occur. The buttons here are all random.
    
    You'll have to fight another boss now. Use your thunder shuriken to
    hit it from medium range. When the enemy's fireballs hit the electric
    shield, it'll damage the boss. Keep using thunder shuriken to upkeep
    the shield. Get near when the boss is near death and press A, then
    X, UP, (A), X, (X), random button presses, (B), and Y.
    
    Now for the most hilarious scene in the game. Press A, A, random, A,
    random, then X. Afterwards, press A, random, Y, random, and Y to
    finish off the stage. Stopping a plane with your bare hands? REALLY?

    You start the stage with a midboss fight. When the enemy rushes towards
    you, dodge and when it stopps rolling, attack it. The enemy will start
    again, then keep avoiding it by dashing. When it stops, attack again.

    Go towards the breakable wall, kill the invisible enemies, and go
    through after destroying it. When you see a pit, throw a flame shuriken
    to reveal a grapple point and then jump over after using ninja vision
    to spot a plant you can kill with your flame shuriken. Now go to the
    left and blow out the wall to find another pit. use your flame shuriken
    to reveal another grapple point, then grapple over and kill the
    enemies. Int he next room, run across the pools when they aren't
    electrified and climb up to the platform. Kill the enemies here, and
    move ahead.
    
    You'll fight another midboss here. Kill it the same way you did the
    first one. The QTE is A, X, X, Y, X, Y. Go onward, and kill any enemies
    you come across. Eventually you'll need to wallrun across a pit, then
    upwards to an upper level. Kill the enemies here, then jump on the bars
    to get to the next area. Kill the enemies here and move on. You'll see
    a breakable wall soon. Destroy it, kill the invisible enemies, and then
    break the eggs on the other side of the wall. One has a [[CHI PIECE]].
    
    Head back and wallrun forward. Keep going until you drop down, then use
    your ninja vision to find a plant you can kill with your flame
    shuriken. Kill the enemies here, and you'll be able to see some barrels
    somewhere in the area. Destroy them and there will be a [[HEALTH
    PIECE]] inside. Now keep moving on, and then you will find a giant
    plant again. Kill it with a flame shuriken, and then grapple to the
    next area. Destroy the plant you meet next, then kill the enemies there
    before going forward. Keep going and you'll reach a cave. You'll see
    some crates you can detsroy and if you use a flame shuriken on the
    ledge you can grapple to another platform. There will be barrels here
    containing a [[CHI PIECE]].
    
    Go to the next platform, then keep going. Kill the enemies, and you'll
    find some claw enemies; nearby there is a breakable wall. Break through
    it, then use ninja vision to locate another. Now go back out and turn
    right. At the edge, jump across the pit and the barrels will contain a
    [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. Keep going and climb the wall. Go back the way you
    came and then continue onward. When you reach the next room, use your
    [[NINJA VISION]] in order to find a hidden barrel. Destroy it to find
    an [[EMBLEM]]. Keep going and grapple to the next platform, then you'll
    fight ANOTHER midboss. The same tactics will work as before. You'll
    then have to QTE to kill it. Press A, then X, Y, X, X, Y. After this
    you're going to have another QTE. Press UP, RIGHT, A, Y.
    
    When you're in control again, use your flame shuriken to make a grapple
    point appear. Climb up and kill the enemies there. Keep going and break
    through the wall. Continue onward and destroy the enemies. When you are
    in the tunnel, kill the enemy after showing it through Ninja Vision,
    then during the QTE, press UP and A. Now you have to fight a boss.
    
    Stones will be thrown at you sometimes. Dodge them and attack the boss
    whenever you have a chance. Knock some exploding enemies into the boss
    using the Cyclone Shuriken. If flames appear, use the cyclone shuriken
    and put them out. When the boss' life is gone you'll have to kill it
    with a QTE. Press A, then Y, X, UP, A, A, B. After this, press Y, X,
    UP, A, A, B. Finally press B, LEFT, A, A, UP, A, UP, Y.
    
    Now you have to keep hitting the boss. When it shoots fireballs at you
    jump over them and attack it. Keep doing this and when the boss' life
    is gone, you'll have to do another QTE. Press A, then X, Y, LEFT, A,
    then Y. Then, press A, and (X), (Y), (Y). After this cutscene, press
    (A), and hen A, A, and then Y.
    
    After that long ass QTE sequence, the mission will end.

    when it's still recovering. Keep doing this until it's dead.
    
    Keep going, and you'll be able to wallrun upwards. Put out the flames
    before you go up though. When you get there destroy the barrels and
    wallrun up the wall nearby and jump onto a platform. Destroy the crates
    for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Now, drop down and continue on. Keep going forward
    while killing enemies and eventually you'll have to climb up a wall.
    Do so for a cutscene. Afterwards, you'll have to kill a crapload of
    enemies. Keep going forward after you've fought off the army, and then
    keep moving forward. Jump up the grapple point and keep going. Kill
    the enemies you meet and drop down. You'll fight two Giant enemies
    along with a legion of normal enemies. You can take them down by now.
    You'll be able to find a wall to wallrun up near the first bridge.
    Put out the fire on the paltform, then get onto the ledge and destroy
    the nearby barrels to find a [[SHINOBI MOJI]].

    before killing the bugs. Now keep going, and wallrun and jump over
    the helicopter. Grapple to the next area and kill the enemies. Keep
    going while killing off the enemies here and use the bars to get over
    the pit. In this next room you can destroy some crates to find a
    [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Now break through the nearby breakable wall, and
    wallrun to the platform. Kill the enemies here, and break through the
    nearby breakable wall, to find some barrels with a [[CHI PIECE]] as
    well as an [[EMBLEM]].
    
    Now get to the next building and kill the enemies. Use the flame
    shuriken on the red barrels you can see to blow up the enemies, then
    keep going. You'll now fight a midboss. It'll shoot lasers at you,
    and dash at you. Dodge the lasers and the dash, then hit it when you
    have a chance. Damage it enough and it'll retreat, and a lot of smaller
    enemies will come at you. Throw out some thunder shurikens to kill them
    off. Once enough of them go down, the midboss will come out again.
    Repeat the process. Now get near it when it's nearly dead, then press
    A, then X, then X, Y, Y, then A, and X. Now press (A), and then Y.
    
    Get to the next building. Kill the enemies, and press B, then A and
    you'll get out of the elevator. When you regain control, destroy the
    nearby crates for the [[MOON OUTFIT]]. Keep going forward for a QTE

    the enemies. Another QTE will occur. Press X, then throw a flame
    shuriken at the enemy, and then press B in the next QTE. Keep attacking
    and during the next QTE, press (X). Continue attacking, and the midboss
    will retreat, leaving you to contend with a few normal enemies. When
    the enemies are gone, hit the midboss with a flame shuriken. Press Y
    at the next QTE. Keep attacking him, and the next QTE will have you
    pressing (X). He'll make you fight more normal enemies, this time you
    need to press B for the QTE. When his life is down, get near him, then
    press A, and then (X), and X, Y.
    
    In the next QTE, press DOWN, and then Y. Now break through the
    breakable wall, and keep going forward along the path. During this next
    QTE, press UP, LEFT, then X. Now you will fight a boss battle.
    
    The boss will split into three, attack all of them, or use your ninja
    vision to find the real one and attack him. Keep attacking and
    eventually you'll have to QTE. Press DOWN, and continue attacking. When
    you've damaged him enough, the boss will go into phase 2. his attacks
    are powerful but you can run around the area to dodge them. When he is
    close enough, attack. Don't try to figure out which one is the real one
    since it'll leave you vulnerable. When his life is gone, go to him and
    press A. then press X, X, Y, A, X, (Y), then Y. After that, press
    RIGHT, Y, LEFT, UP, RIGHT, X, X, RIGHT, B. Then A, X, Y, A.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You're gonna be on a machine gun again. Use the machine gun, and
    missiles on enemies who can't be taken down with the machine gun.
    Some enemies shield themselves against gunfire so use missiles on them.
    You'll face off against a midboss from earlier stages. Use missiles
    to defeat it. When flying monsters appear, shoot them down with the
    machine gun. Now you'll be on foot but you'll lose your Ninjutsu.
    
    Go to the left path. Keep going forward and killing the enemies.
    Grapple to the platform, then kill the enemies there. Break down the
    breakable wall nearby. Kill the enemies on the other side and watch
    out for missiles. You'll find a wallrun-able column in the room. Go up
    and kill the enemies here. Keep going and drop down, and kill the
    enemies, then wallrun up the nearby column. When you get to the top,
    use your Ninja Vision to see a wallrun location. Use it and break the
    crates at the top for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Run across the nearby bridge
    then destroy the barrels for an [[EMBLEM]]. Now drop down to the next
    area and kill all the enemies here. Now keep going forward and jump
    up to the next platform. Keep going and you'll reach some tunnels.
    Jump across the pits and you'll fight a boss.
    
    This boss has a dash attack. After it does it, run in and hit it. It
    will then either slash at you or breath poison gas. Dash back when
    this happens and then dodge the laser, and the cycle will continue.
    Eventually it'll send whirlwinds at you. Keep attacking and downing
    the normal enemies. You'll be able to kill it with little trouble.
    You'll be thrown back to the beginning of the stage. If you want,
    you can go back into the left path. Where you fight the missile
    enemies, wallrun up twice, then blow out the nearby flames. Drop down
    the pit there and destroy the nearby barrels for a [[HEALTH PIECE]].
    
    Now, use the Cyclone Shuriken to get through the flames, and go in.
    Kill the enemies and grapple to the next area. Kill the enemies here
    and blow out the fire, and then break through the breakable wall. Go
    left, then wallrun forward, and blow out the flames. Kill the enemies
    here, then destroy the nearby breakable wall, and break the eggs in
    here for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Go back, and grapple to the next platform
    and kill the enemy there. Keep going down the path and use the bars
    to jump across the pit. You'll see a platform on fire nearby. Blow
    out the fire, then grapple onto the platform. Destroy the crates for
    the [[SHINOBI MOJI]] as well as the [[CHRYSANTHEMUM AND CHALICE
    OUTFIT]]. Now go back and keep going down the path, and kill the
    enemies. Keep moving forward and you'll be in a cave. Kill the enemies
    and blow out the flames, then go to the next platform to fight a Giant
    monster. It's the same as the previous incarnations, plus a few normal
    enemies backing it up, so it shouldn't be too difficult.
    
    You're back in the beginning again, go to the last path. Now keep going
    forward and kill all the enemies. Grapple to a platform with a plant in
    the center, and set it on fire. You'll then be able to destroy a
    breakable wall nearby. Keep going and set off the plants as well as
    a monster generator as you make your way forward. After a monster
    generator, kill a plant. Then in the same room, go through the nearby
    breakable wall to find the [[EMBLEM]] in some barrels. Nearby the
    fences have a hole you can go thruogh. In the next room you can wallrun
    up and destroy the barrels for a [CHI PIECE].
    
    Now keep going forward and kill the enemies here. You'll have to break
    through another wall before you can see a plant that you need to set
    ablaze. Wallrun-jump to the next platform, then kill all the enemies
    here. Put out the nearby flames and keep going forward, eventually you
    will have to fight a boss. It will send electric shockwaves at you
    which are easily dodged. It can also shoot lasers which damage you a
    lot, but is easily avoidable. Right after it shoots the lasers, run in
    and hit it. Repeat this cycle.
    
    Now you are back in the beginning and you have another path open to you
    now. Press A at the QTE. You'll be at another falling sequence. At the
    end of it, press A, then A again. Keep going forward and you'll hit
    another boss after a bevy of attacks to dodge. It's the spider boss
    from earlier, the same tactics apply. When there is a cutscene, press
    X. You'll have to move through the cave again. Another QTE will follow
    after more battling, for this you press A. When the boss is nearly
    dead, go to it and press A, then X, Y, A, then (A), and X, X, Y, Y. The
    final QTE for this mission is A, then Y.

    You'll begin with a QTE. Press A, then A. Afterwards, press A, X, B, X,
    X, and Y. Afterwards, press X. Then, press DOWN, and (X). Now you'll be

    will run away.
    
    Break the nearby crate for a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. More crates nearby hold
    an [[EMBLEM]] as well as a [[CHERRY BLOSSOM OUTFIT]]. Go to the hole
    the boss jumped through, and press A at the QTE. When you're fighitng
    the boss again, just dodge or block his attacks. Another QTE will
    happen, press DOWN, A, UP, A. Nearby, there are some barrels. Destroy
    them for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Now keep going forward and another QTE will
    occur. Press UP, then DOWN. Then press (X). Press (X) again, then Y,
    then Y, Y, Y.
    
    You'll be in control now. Kill the normal enemies, and equip the Ninja
    Blade. Run to the boss and start smashing into him (start with a dash
    attack leading into a regular combo). If you see a cutscene, press X
    to get past the QTE. Eventually another QTE will happen. Press Y, then
    UP. Then, press A, UP, A, A. Now the boss will use a dashing attack,
    which is the best time to hit him. Dodge his attack and keep attacking.

    Switch out of the Ninja Blade and kill them with normal weapons. After
    you kill them all he'll reappear. Repeat the process. When his life is
    gone, go to him and press, A, then X, then X, Y, Y to end the fight,

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You are on a machine gun for like the fifth time in the game. Were they
    running out of ideas or something? Anyway, keep shooting the enemies
    with the machine gun until the worm monsters shows up. Then start using
    missiles. After it is dead, go back to using the machine gun on the
    normal enemies. You'll fight another worm monster and some flying
    monsters. These are easy by now. Now you fight the true midboss. Shoot
    missiles at its head, and be sure to shoot down the stuff he throws at
    you. If he lifts a boulder up, shoot him in the chest area to make
    him drop it. A QTE will eventually occur. Press DOWN, A, DOWN.
    
    You'll now be in control. Laser will shoot down from the sky for a lot
    of the level, so be prepared to dodge it at any given moment. Kill the
    enemies, and go forward. Wallrun up to the platform and kill the
    enemies there. Keep going ahead until you see a breakable wall. Kill
    the enemy that comes out and go grapple to the next building. Kill
    the enemies here, then use the bars to jump to the next building. Kill
    the enemies here, then go to the left and break down the wall there.
    Beyond there is an [[EMBLEM]].
    
    Keep moving forward while killing enemies and go to the next building
    by grappling. Kill the enemies here. Go to the left up a path to the
    platform where the gunmen were. Now go to the next building and keep
    going through, and break through the wall. Grab the [[HEALTH PIECE]]
    here and return to the last building. Now, Jump down and blow out the
    fire here. Grapple to the next building and you'll fight a Giant
    enemy again. It'll have some backup, but by this time its attacks are
    pretty old hat and you can take it down with no real problems. Now
    go to the next building.
    
    Kill the enemies here, move forward, use the bar to jump down, and
    kill the enemies there. GO up to the platform and grapple to the next
    building after killing the enemies. You'll fight another boss here.
    Jump over the shockwave attacks, and attack him. If he makes electric
    then avoid them. If he makes fire, run until he stops, put them out,
    and then attack him some more. After a while he'll just give up and
    start shooting electric bolts at you. Dodge the bolts and keep
    attacking him. His attacks from now on is rather straightforward, and
    he will eventually start summoning enemies to fight you, but they
    should all be easily taken care of. Now, when his life bar is at 0,
    go to him, press A, then X, LEFT, Y, A.
    
    Now go down the stairs and then go left. Kill the enemies here, break
    through the wall, and keep going while dodging the steam barriers, and
    wallrun up to the next platform. Blow out the fire, then grapple, and
    then wallrun to the next building. Jump down, and you'll have to avoid
    some more steam. After this you'll see a breakable wall. Go through it
    and go to the left to find a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. Cross the nearby bridge
    and break through the wall to the next building and you'll find the
    [[MAPLE OUTFIT]]. Now, keep going through the next breakable wall.
    You'll be swarmed by enemies here, but it's actually not that hard
    since they're all weak as hell.
    
    Use the bar to get to the next platform and fight a midboss. Attack it,
    and when it goes out of your attack range, prepare to dodge its dashing
    attack. When the normal enemies come out, kill them all to make the
    midboss come back. Keep attacking the midboss. Eventually it'll start
    shooting electricity out. Dodge it, and keep attacking. After it is
    defeated, keep going forward. Kill the enemies that follow, and you'll
    eventually see a bar to use to get to the next platform. Keep going
    forward to fight the boss.
    
    You'll want to wallrun on his blade when he brings it down to get to
    the next few platforms. Eventually he'll throw fireballs at you 
    (which you can easily dodge), and if he makes a yellow cube thing,
    watch out, because he'll start shooting fire. Put out the flames and
    strike his hand. He'll also use an electric attack. Avoid it, then
    hit his left hand. After a while the boss will start shooting lasers
    from his eyes. His head will be in range now, so dodge the lasers
    and keep attacking him. When his head is low enough, use the Ninja
    Blade to hit him. This will trigger a QTE. Press (A), then LEFT, A,
    and X. His pattern is easy to figure out, it's just that it'll take
    a while before you whittle down his life bar. When his life is gone,
    go to his sword, wallrun, jump towards him, and then press A. Press
    X, X, LEFT, X, A, Y, A. Then DOWN at the next QTE.
    
    You'll now have to fight the final boss. Block his attack using the
    LT button, then keep attacking with X. Afterwards, switch to the Ninja
    Blade and attack. Keep doing this and when his life is gone, go to
    him, and press A. Then, press X, Y, and finally, Y. THe boss will
    go down and you'll have beaten the game.
