    1.1. Introduction
    Hey! This is my guide for Lady Oichi.  I decided to write one on Oichi because 
    she is a cool character but there is no FAQ on her on GameFaqs.  This is my 
    first FAQ contribution on GameFaqs and I hope it will be of some help to fans 
    of the game Samurai Warriors.
    1.2. Update History
    1.00- Submitted FAQ, got accepted.
    1.20- Added Update History, fixed a couple bugs, added last two missions in
    Battle of Okehazama that I forgot, fixed Section 9.3 a bit.
    2. Biography of Oichi
    Oichi was born in 1583.  She was the sister of Oda Nobunaga renowned
    for her beauty.  Oichi was married to Shibata Katsuie in 1557.  During 
    Nobunaga’s conquest of Mino in 1567, he made Shibata and Oichi divorce so Oichi
    could be a wife of Asai Nagamasa, who is the lord of the North Omi Province.  
    Oichi and Nagamasa had one son together named Manjumaru and three daughters.  
    Later on though, in 1570 Nagamasa betrayed Nobunaga and went to war with him on
    behalf of the Asakura family. The Asakura were destroyed and the fighting 
    continued. Nagamasa’s Odani Castle was surrounded.  Nobunaga requested that his
    sister be returned to him. Nagamasa allowed this and sent out Oichi and her 
    three daughters. Nagamasa and Manjumaru then perished, leaving Oichi to be 
    shuffled back to Katsuie. In 1583, after Nobunaga’s death, Shibata Katsuie and
    Toyotomi Hideyoshi went to war over ruling land. Katsuie’s army perished at 
    Shizugatake in northern Omi, and the general was not at the battle and 
    committed suicide.  He pleaded Oichi to take her daughters and flee but to 
    no avail.  Oichi sent her daughters into Hideyoshi’s care, but stayed herself 
    to die with Katsuie as his castle was engulfed in flames.
    3. Oichi’s Story Flow
    After the third mission, her story mode splits into two paths.The top path is 
    the A path, and the bottom path is the B path.
    4. Story Mode Levels
    For the story mode levels, I will state the missions in each level and give you
    tips on each. Here are the levels in Oichi’s Story mode.
    4.1. Battle of Okehazama
    Attack the Imagawa Outposts!
    There is a horse near your starting position.  Get on the horse and go to the 
    two locations.  There is a Defense Captain at the east outpost and Tadatsugu 
    Sakai at the west outpost. Beat both to get the mission complete message.
    Eliminate the Enemies Near the Zenshouji Fortress
    Go to the location to the north and fight Ujimoto Katsurayama west of the 
    fortress and some of his Rider Captains and Strike Ninjas and any other 
    enemies. Defeat them for the mission complete message.
    Attack the Imagawa Main Camp From the Mountain Pass
    Go through the mountain pass on the eastern part of the map and attack the 
    Imagawa camp. You will follow Nobunaga Oda. This will also activate two 
    missions along the way, and I’ll explain that next. You will get mission 
    complete message when you reach the X at the camp. If you defeat Yoshimoto 
    here,  you end the battle, but if you complete the other mission you get more 
    Exp. It’s better to complete the other missions in my opinion.
    Eliminate Hanzo Hattori
    This mission is activated during the Attack of Imagawa Camp from Mountain Pass
    mission.  You should eliminate him quickly to fulfill the Imagawa Camp mission.
    When you eliminate him you’ll get the mission complete message.
    Eliminate Tadakatsu Honda
    This mission is activated after you complete the Imagawa Camp mission. 
    You will see Tadakatsu’s location.  Go to it and eliminate Tadakatsu Honda.  
    If you eliminate Tadakatsu quickly, Ieyasu Tokugawa may join you.  Eliminating 
    Tadakatsu gets you the mission complete message.
    Eliminate All Imagawa Officers
    Eliminate all the officers at the locations.  They’re not very hard, but 
    sometimes you may be fighting four at a time.  After that go to the Imagawa 
    main camp and defeat Yoshimoto to complete this level.
    Eliminate The Imagawa Army's Elite Officers
    You will get this mission if you fail to complete the Zenshouji Fortress 
    mission (meaning Hideyoshi Hashiba dies).  Defeat all the Imagawa officers to 
    complete this mission.
    Do not let Hanzo Hattori Overtake You!
    This mission will be activated during mission 7 by defeating 5 or more elite
    officers and going to the west side of the map. I suggest you ride a horse for
    this mission because Hanzo runs pretty fast and you will need to beat him to
    the Imagawa Main Camp. You just have to get to the camp, you don't need to 
    defeat Hanzo. When you get to the camp you will complete this mission
    4.2. Siege of Inabayama Castle- Field
    Defeat Bokuzen Ujiie’s Unit at Sunomata
    Travel to the north and you’ll get to Sunomata. You’ll have to run around the 
    camp to the right to find the entrance. Eliminate Bokuzen and go straight 
    toward the lumber storage area in the southwest corner of the map.
    Defeat Morinari’s Unit at the West Lumber Storage
    Go on the path across the bridge to reach the lumber yard. Morinari has a big 
    army so take out some of the soldiers and then eliminate Morinari. This will 
    get you the mission complete message.
    Guard the Siege Ramp
    The siege ramp is over to the east, but it also travels north. Get a little 
    ahead of the ramp to defeat enemies.  When the ramp is set, defeat Ittetsu 
    Inaba and the Reserve Captain there too. This will secure the ramp and you 
    completed this mission.
    Defeat All Saito Officers
    When all the Saito gates open, the officers will start attacking. When you 
    eliminate all the officers, travel north on the eastern edge. You will get an 
    order to eliminate Yoshitatsu Saito. When you defeat him, you will complete 
    both missions.
    4.3. Siege of Inabayama Castle-Castle
    Before I tell you the missions for this level, I will tell you about castle 
    levels. Castle levels involve getting to the highest floor or sub-level by 
    finding the set of stairs with is marked by a blue dot on the map.  There are 
    various traps in castle levels such as spike floors, dropping floors, snares, 
    axe pendulums, and razor walls. If you ever see double doors, you can break 
    them to enter new rooms.  Ninja troops drop lots of good items so be sure to 
    defeat them for some health. There are also officers to defeat in castle 
    levels. Onto the missions:
    Eliminate Ranmaru Mori
    Ranmaru Mori is on the first floor of this level. He has a big army so defeat 
    some of his soldiers and then eliminate him as well. Once you defeat him find 
    the set of stairs to Floor 2.
    Infiltrate Floor 2
    On Floor 2 there are various officers to defeat. The two main ones you have to 
    defeat are Hanbei Takenaka and Mitsuhide Akechi. Hanbei Takenaka is found past
    a hall of spiked walls (run straight through it, don’t stop or you’ll get 
    hurt!). Mitsuhide Akechi is found right in front of the stairs to Floor 3. 
    Defeat him to go to Floor 3.
    Eliminate Yoshitatsu Saito
    On Floor 4 you will fight Yoshitatsu Saito and Tatsuoki Saito. You only need to
    defeat Yoshitatsu Saito to complete the mission. Once you eliminate Yoshitatsu
    you will complete this level.
    4.4. The Battle of Anegawa
    This is a turn point in Oichi’s Story Mode. If you complete the mission 
    "Eliminate Nobunaga Oda" you go to the A path (See Section 3 for more details)
    if it is not successful you go to the B path.
    Eliminate Ieyasu Tokugawa and Stop the Enemy Advance
    When the mission is ordered, go to Tokugawa’s location and simply eliminate 
    him. This will also stop the enemy advance and you will complete this mission.
    Prevent Keiji Maeda From Entering the Main Camp
    Keiji is on the southern part of the map. Be careful of the dead end at the 
    southwest corner. Go east to prevent confusion and eliminate Keiji Maeda.
    Eliminate Noh
    Oichi will mention asking Noh if she should defeat her brother. Noh is on the 
    southeastern part of the map, but it doesn’t show the location with a blue 
    circle. Pay attention to when Oichi talks and remember the location of Noh 
    because it’s only there for a few seconds. Once you find Noh, eliminate her 
    and you will complete this mission.
    Prevent the Enemy From Entering the Main Camp
    Oda will send out three armies to attack the main camp. Start at the armies to
    the north, with the first one being Ittetsu’s army, followed soon by Ujiie’s 
    army. Eliminate both the northern armies and go south to fight Ando’s army, and
    if you still haven’t beaten Mitsuhide Akechi, eliminate him as well if you'd 
    Eliminate Nobunaga Oda
    For this mission to succeed you must beat him in two minutes. His camp is at 
    the southwest corner of the map. He is guarded by Ranmaru Mori and a 
    good-sized army. Defeat him in two minutes, or if you don’t still defeat 
    him anyway, you will still complete the level.
    4.5. Azuchi Infiltration (A path)
    Defeat the Mino Three
    There are pendulum blades in this level, somersault by pressing the R2 button 
    to dodge them.  Once you get past the pendulum blades you will soon enter a 
    big area. This is where the Mino Three are. Defeat the three officers: Ittetsu 
    Inaba, Bokuzen Ujiie, and Morinari Ando. Once you defeat the Mino Three head 
    for the staircase to the next floor.
    Infiltrate Floor 2
    This is a very easy floor to get through. Defeat fire ninjas on this level for 
    life. Once you find the staircase go up them to get to the harder Floor 3.
    Defeat the Mino Three (Again!)
    The Mino Three are located by the staircase which can be accessed by going up 
    the circular stairway in a large chamber up north. Once you defeat the Mino 
    Three yet again, the stairs are accessible and you can go up to Floor 4.
    Infiltrate Floor 4
    This floor is occupied by the Shibata army and Tsuneoki Ikeda. Defeat Ikeda 
    and fight through the Shibata army and get to Floor 5.
    Eliminate Keiji Maeda
    Go through a set of double doors and you will find Keiji Maeda. Eliminate him 
    and go through another series of double doors to find the staircase.
    Eliminate Mitsuhide Akechi
    On the last floor, which is Floor 6, you must defeat Mitsuhide Akechi. When 
    you defeat him, you will complete this castle level.
    4.6. Betrayal at Honnouji
    Defeat Hidemitsu Akechi and Thwart the Fire Attack
    Go south from where you start and go to the eastern edge of the map. You will 
    soon get this mission. Go to the blue X and defeat Hidemitsu Akechi to stop the
    fire attack.
    Rescue Nobunaga Oda from Honnouji
    Hurry north to Honnouji and go through the outer south gate. Approach Nobunaga 
    and you will complete this mission.
    Rescue Ranmaru Mori
    Approach Ranmaru Mori past the main hall’s south gate. You can help him fight 
    the Akechi Army but all you need to do is approach him.
    Rescue Noh
    Find Lady Noh a bit north of Nobunaga’s location. Approach her and you will 
    complete this mission. If you are too late she will side with the enemy and 
    then you will have to eliminate her.
    Help Nobunaga Oda Escape to the Southeast
    You will run into enemy armies along the way. Defeat them and continue onward 
    to the southeast. The escape point in the southeast is sealed so now you must 
    go to the northwest instead. When you run into enemy officers, defeat them. 
    You can also go off away from Nobunaga and go ahead and defeat Mitsuhide 
    Akechi, Nobunaga will be fine. Once you defeat Mitsuhide you have completed 
    Oichi’s Story Mode via the A path!
    4.7. Siege of Azuchi Castle- Field (B path)
    Eliminate the Enemy Ambush Party
    Proceed north from the starting point until Oichi is inside the gate. The gate
    will then close and am ambush party will attack. Defeat the Fire Ninja first 
    because his grenades hurt. Then defeat the muskets and everyone else. The gate
    will open up and you will complete this mission.
    Eliminate Mitsuhide Akechi
    When Akechi arrives, travel to the north to fight him. Hit him off his horse 
    and defeat him to complete this mission.
    Defeat the Mino Three
    Go north from Akechi’s location through the newly opened gate to fight the 
    Mino Three. Defeat the three officers to complete this mission.
    Wipe Out the Hashiba Musket Unit
    Move through the gate that opened when you defeat the Mino Three. There are 
    three large musket units to fight. Fight the easternmost unit, and then when 
    they are eliminated a gate will open, allowing you to move westward. Defeat 
    the second unit and a gate will open to the third one. When you defeat all 
    three units you complete the mission.
    Defeat Hideyoshi Hashiba
    If you fail to defeat the musket units then you can defeat Hideyoshi Hashiba 
    instead. Defeat him to complete this mission. If you don’t complete it in time 
    then you will move on to the next mission which I’ll explain next.
    Defeat Keiji Maeda
    When you receive the mission, go to the northwest to find him. This is a tough
    battle so use good combo attacks and you should win. When you defeat him, you 
    complete this mission. If you fail to defeat him, this level comes to an end.
    Defeat Ranmaru Mori
    Before fighting Mori go to Nagamasa Azai’s location and help him fight the 
    Shibata army to clear the first gate.  Once you clear the gate you can fight 
    Ranmaru Mori. He is up north a bit near the map’s edge. When you defeat him 
    the mission is cleared and the north gate opens.  You can find some helpful 
    power-ups by defeating Ranmaru’s soldiers.
    Defeat Nobunaga Oda
    There is a Defense Captain protecting the gate to Nobunaga Oda’s main camp. 
    Defeat him and the gate will open.  Don’t spend too much time defeating Oda’s 
    soldiers and spend more time defeating Nobunaga. When you defeat Nobunaga you 
    will go inside the Azuchi Castle.
    4.8. Siege of Azuchi Castle- Castle (B path)
    Defeat Mitsuhide Akechi
    Again, in this level you will go through the hall of pendulum blades. Remember
    to somersault to evade the pendulum blades.  Ninjas in this level drop life 
    power-ups too, so defeat all the ninjas you see to find them.  Once you reach 
    the staircase, you will have to fight Mitsuhide Akechi before going to the 
    second floor.  Once you defeat him, go to the second floor.
    Floor 2
    There is really nothing much to do in this floor.  Destroy all the doors you 
    see and defeat all the Kyouden ninjas here too.  Find the staircase and reach 
    the third floor.
    Defeat Ranmaru Mori
    On this floor, you will find musket units. Defeat them for power-ups also.  
    Ranmaru has a large army so be careful. Eventually, you will run into a large 
    chamber with a circular staircase. Run up the staircase, and you will find 
    Ranmaru Mori and the stairs to the next floor.  Defeat Ranmaru and you will 
    be able to go to Floor 4.
    Floor 4
    There is one officer on this floor, but you don’t have to defeat him.  Be sure
    to defeat the musket units on this floor for power-ups. It helps!  Kazimasu 
    Takigawa is the officer on this floor and he is near the staircase to Floor 5.
    Defeat Hideyoshi Hashiba
    This is a pretty small floor, but Hideyoshi is on this floor.  He is close
    to the stairs to Floor 6. Defeat him and his army and turn left to find the
    staircase to the final floor.
    Defeat Nobunaga Oda
    Nobunaga is a powerful man with powerful attacks. Attack him airborne, and use 
    charge and musou attacks to defeat him.  He only has a little squad protecting
    him so defeat them if you want.  After you defeat him you will win this level.
    4.9. The Battle at Honnouji
    Eliminate Mitsuhide Akechi
    Go north from your starting position to the second intersection to the left to 
    find Mitsuhide.  This is an easy fight against him, but he is retreating so 
    defeat him quickly.
    Thwart Nagamasa Azai’s Fire Attack
    After defeating Mitsuhide, go to Nagamasa’s location and approach him to stop 
    the fire attack.  This will complete this mission, but remember to get there 
    quickly.  (By the way, depending on if you complete mission 1 or not. This 
    mission will have a different name in the vault. So there are 2 different 
    missions in this same mission I suppose, lol.)
    Eliminate Hideyoshi Hashiba and Ieyasu Tokugawa
    If you do not stop Nagamasa’s fire attack, you have to defeat Hideyoshi and 
    Ieyasu.  Go to the west side of the city to find Hideyoshi.  Defeat him 
    quickly and go to Ieyasu’s location east of the city.  A horse is recommended 
    for this mission, or if Oichi on your game is fast, don't worry about having a 
    horse. Once you reach Ieyasu, defeat him and you will complete this mission.
    Eliminate Hanzo Hattori
    You must defeat Mitsuhide, Ieyasu, and Hideyoshi during the missions to have 
    Hanzo appear.  Hanzo arrives near Ieyasu’s location. Hanzo is a fast enemy, 
    so you need to be a fast attacker when facing him.  Defeat Hanzo and you will 
    complete this mission.
    Eliminate Noh
    Noh is the final mission for this battle, but she can be hard to get to.  Go 
    around the eastern edge of the map and go north of Honnouji.  Defeat Ittetsu 
    Inaba to open the north side of Honnouji.  Defeat Nagahide Niwa to open the 
    west gate, and defeat Ranmaru Mori to open the south gate. Any other officers 
    are optional to defeat.  Once you’ve done that you can battle Noh.  Noh has a 
    large army, but she isn’t hard to defeat.  Defeat Noh and you have completed 
    Oichi’s Story Mode via the B path!
    5. Endings
    Oichi has two different endings:
    Ending A: Hand in Hand- complete Oichi’s Story Mode via the A path to get 
    this ending.
    Ending B: Requiem for the Fallen- complete Oichi’s Story Mode via the B path
    to get this ending.
    6. Weapons
    Oichi uses a weapon called a kendama. It’s a Japanese toy and it has a 
    trick to it too.  If you spin it, and pop it up, it’ll land straight on the 
    spike! Just a little bit of info. I got from my cousin! Here are her weapons:
    Base Attack: 12
    Base Attack: 22
    Base Attack: 29
    Base Attack: 40
    Base Attack: 45
    Lightning Element
    Attack +44
    Defense +39
    Ranged Attack +39
    Musou +40
    7. Unlocking Oichi’s Fifth Weapon
    In The Battle of Anegawa, clear mission 1 through 4 without losing any allied 
    officers. Make sure the difficulty is on Hard and you have completed Oichi's 
    Story Mode. Check section 4.4 for details on the missions you must accomplish.
    After that, a supply unit will be found along the southwest and will move 
    north. Defeat the supply unit and pick up the weapon he drops, and you will 
    have Oichi’s fifth weapon.

    Jump	        165	195
    Evade	        160	190
    9. Attacks
    Of course, Oichi here attacks with a kendama.  Her weapon has a good range 
    that is better than most characters.  But she has very low attack power 
    (lowest in the game, by the way!) She has good defensive and speed stats 
    though, so she is still a very good character.
    9.1. Attack Combos
    SSSSSSSS- She swings her kendama in all sorts of directions and has good 
    range at the end of the combo.  It is somewhat hard to hit enemies on the 
    last attack.
    T- Charges up and starts running while spinning her kendama in front of her.  
    Good for running through crowds but has mediocre attack power.
    ST- Swings her kendama upward then downward and then shoots out a pink cloud 
    at the enemy.  I hate this attack because it is slow.
    SST- Swings her kendama diagonally then back, and then jumps three times and 
    swings her kendama at her side when she jumps.  This is one of the better 
    charge attacks in crowds.
    SSST- Spins her kendama 360 degrees multiple times and then does a flip 
    similar to Da Qiao’s from Dynasty Warriors 3 and 4^^.  If you press the 
    triangle button repeatedly too much, then she will fall and get dizzy.
    XS- Punches out her kendama in front of her.
    XT- Jumps on the ground and creates a small shockwave.
    Deadlock- Hits enemy four times with kendama.  Very effective on Hard and 
    Chaos mode.
    Deflect (L1-T) - Forward attack with kendama. Trips and falls on her face, 
    she's so clumsy!
    9.2. Musou
    Musou- Spins around her kendama above her head and walks slowly.  
    This has good range and is good in crowds, but it is very, very, very, very, 
    very weak.  I recommend pressing Circle not holding it when doing her musou, 
    then do her SSST or SST attack and it will do a better amount of damage.
    True Musou- Like I said, do her SSST attack and since doing True Musou the 
    musou power is double and the enemies are engulfed in flames, this will be 
    very useful.  She also does her T motion at the end of the True Musou.
    9.3. Horse Attacks
    T- The horse jumps and makes a shockwave, or it kind of does a bucking motion 
    and creates a shockwave.
    ST- Oichi trails the kendama behind her and the horse.
    SST- Oichi does a quick motion outward with her kendama.
    SSST- Oichi does a long attack outward with her kendama.  This covers a lot 
    of range!
    SSSSSSSS- Swings her kendama repeatedly to her right.
    Musou- Swings her kendama over her head to the right
    True Musou- Same as her musou except more powerful and engulfs the enemy in
