Just hold L1 when you're getting in position for an attack. You must block if you even want to survive in this game. -Roll Always block and roll. Always block and roll. Some enemies, no scratch that, MOST enemies have a move that will break your block and leave you open. Roll when they miss and then kick their ass with your ninja skills. You can also get through an area quicker if you roll and then jump and keep repeating. You'll go much faster than just running. -Wall Attacks These can be your best friends with a very strong weapon (like the Dabilahro or Unlaboured Flawlessness). Simply run up to a wall, jump off and /\. If anyone is near you, it'll hurt a lot. This was the only way I beat the three boss battle (don't wanna ruin it for you(only in mission mode)) You can also do this with the Dragon Sword but it's not as powerful as the heavy weapons. -Ultimate Techniques When you kill someone, they leave essence behind. If it's yellow and you don't care about money, suck it up with holding /\. If its blue but you have a lot of life, hold /\ and suck it up. If it’s red and you don’t care about ninpo, suck it up. It will absolutely damage your enemies A LOT and it'll give you more karma. There's a trick where you can absorb the essence quicker where you jump and right before you land, you hold /\, you'll IMMEDIATELY suck it up and unleash your fury. You can even do it from a roll jump, but make sure you're holding block WHILE you're roll jumping because you might accidentally suck up the essence normally. -Ninpo If you like ninpo and think it’s useful, use it. But it's NOT necessary. You can go through the entire game without using it once. I never used it in the game and I'm 2300 place (in normal mode) and 620 in mission mode. Never used it. I don't see the point of using ninpo to kill enemies that have a certain way of beating without using it. But again, if you like the invulnerability and animations, go nuts. -Bow I haven't figured this out till my second playthrough. When you're aiming in first person with the bow, you can zoom in with R1. It's much easier to snipe people this way than the other. Some of you knew that, others didn't. Still a useful feature. -Use different combos. Don't use the same attack over and over. Use the wide variety of combos left to you like /\, /\/\, /\/\/\, jump toward enemy /\, /\ and a lot of others. Also, use different weapons for certain enemies. You don't have to upgrade the weapon but still use it. Come on. Ryu holding those heavy things for no reason. ================================================================================ ================================================================================ ENEMIES ================================================================================ Brown Ninjas ================================================================================ These guys suck. Just block their attacks and hit them with . They'll die. Found in Normal mode in first level. ================================================================================ White Ninjas ================================================================================ A little bit tougher than the brown ninjas, these guys still aren't that good. They can throw shurikens at you and they have a bit better combos. Still, block their attacks and hit them with . Found in Normal mode/Hard Mode in first level. ================================================================================ Black Spider Ninjas ================================================================================ First time I fought them, I thought "They look cool but probably suck." 3 secs later, got exploded. They have exploding shurikens. Didn't know you can dodge them till I read it on the boards, as soon as the shuriken is going to blow, roll. It won't hit. What I do is just Izuna Drop them when I have the chance. But, /\ should work good too if you don't have it yet. Block their combos and avoid their grabs. Also, if you hold block too long, they'll do their grab move. Found in Chaps 4,6,8,9,13 on Normal mode. ================================================================================ Red Spider Ninjas ================================================================================ They got exploding shurikens too but when they hit you with their sword, you get burned to do more damage on you. Same combos and same grab. Do the same thing with the black spider ninjas but avoid their combos even more. Don't get burned. Also, if you hold block too long, they'll do their grab move. Found in chapters 1,4,5,6,8,9,13 on Master Ninja mode. ================================================================================ Purple Ninjas ================================================================================ These guys don't have the exploding shurikens but the Windmill shuriken. Windmill Shuriken?! Damn! They got a different grab which is just as painful as the other ninjas. Do the same thing with the others but be even MORE evasive. If you're being overwhelmed by them, kill one and Ultimate Technique the others. Also, if you hold block too long, they'll do their grab move. Found in Chaps 1,4,5,6,8,9,13 on Very Hard Mode ================================================================================ Samurais ================================================================================ For the longest, I thought these guys were the guys who shot fireballs at you but that was the Warlocks. They're very slow but can pack a punch. Just block until they're combo is finished. Then counter with /\/\ and when you get the lvl 2 dragon sword use /\ instead. Found in Chapter 2 and 14 on any mode ================================================================================ Warlocks ================================================================================ These are the guys who shoot fireballs at you from a distance or teleport near you and get you in a cheap combo. To stop that, flying swallow them, and kill them with /\ Found in Chapter 2 and 14 on any mode ================================================================================ Army soldiers ================================================================================ There's a number of these guys. One is the normal soldier in white. Block his kicks and Izuna Drop him. The commander, who is in black, has a shield so /\/\ him and he should be on the floor. Finish him with /\. Then there are the robotic ones who look kickass. Do the same that you did for the normals. Later on, there are soldiers who have bazookas and guns with swords on it. Izuna drop them and for the bazookas, flying swallow and /\. If you play on a harder mode, you'll find guys who will counter your flying swallow painfully. Try to Izuna Drop or throw explosive arrows. Found in Chapters 3,4,5,6,8,10,11 on any mode ================================================================================ Motorcycle Guys ================================================================================ The only way these guys can hurt you a lot is if they run you over. Roll when they're coming. Flying swallow them a couple times till they fall off or if you have timing, guillotine throw them (it's hard though). Keep in mind that when they fall off, they act as normal soldiers, so you gotta kill them. Found in Chapters 4,6 on any mode. ================================================================================ Red Dinos ================================================================================ These guys look really intimidating but they're not that tough. They have a chomp attack that can't be blocked and hurts, a tail swipe when you're behind them, a fire attack that can't be blocked, a 2 hit claw attack, and a tackle and roll. You can block the roll and roll when he's running to you. Block the claw attack. Best thing is get in front of them and /\ them and roll away. Repeat. When you get the Dabilahro, /\ them. Found in Chapters 6,15,18 on any mode. ================================================================================ Ogres ================================================================================ These guys are huge and hurt if they hit. You should have the Dabilahro when you face them so when they swing their mace, roll forward and /\ them. If they jump, roll away and do /\ again. Just keep repeating to take them down. Found in Chapter 14 in any mode ================================================================================ Brown and pink fiends ================================================================================ The pink ones are the ones that are annoying. The browns are easy. Block their normal attacks and roll when they dig underground and pop out. /\/\ them. For the pinks do the same thing, but watch out for their aerial attacks. To kill them, Izuna Drop them. Found in Chapters 6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15,16,17,18 in any mode. ================================================================================ One eyed fiends ================================================================================ These are the guys with one eye and look kick ass. They also kick ass too. They have the same moves as the brown and pink fiends, but a new move that involves them doing a slide and knocking you on the ground and then stabbing you. You might wanna avoid that by rolling. Again, you should Izuna Drop them or /\/\ them. Found in Chapters 6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15,16,17,18 on hard mode =============================================================================== Zombies ================================================================================ They're very slow except the archers. They are quick with the shot and got good aim. Go for them first. Do your best combos like /\/\/\ or with the flails, --->, the cremator. It looks kickass. For the other zombies, they either hit you with their axes or maces or molest you. If they're molesting you, mash buttons. Also, you can flying swallow them to decapitate them to lower their vision. Later on in the game, you'll face purple zombies who can take a lot of damage. Use the Dabilahro's /\ and keep repeating. You can also cut off one of their arms, by jumping and pressing /\. This affects nothing though. Found in Chapters 7,9,16 on any mode ================================================================================ Catwoman ================================================================================ I hate these damn cats. They flying swallow you all the time and do a 360 grab that hurts. If you like the Lunar, use it. I don't like it so I don't use it or upgrade it. Or you can Izuna Drop one of them, and then On Land Charge the cats around where you landed. If you really can't kill them, shoot explosive arrows in mid-air. Found in Chapter 17 on Normal Mode. Some other places on harder mode ================================================================================ Zombified Army guy ================================================================================ I hate this guy too. They're very quick, have a guillotine throw, and has a fireball attack that's unblockable. Izuna drop one of them and don't stay too far or too close. I personally like /\()/\ (The () is circle) Found in Chapters 14 and 16 on any mode. ================================================================================ Mermaids ================================================================================ These guys are annoying but not too difficult. Run up to them and flying swallow them. When they're underwater, throw your windmill shuriken at them underwater. Then just keep repeating the flying swallow, windmill shuriken until they're dead. These guys can also be Izuna Dropped. Found only in Chapter 13 (thankfully) ================================================================================ Ghost Fish ================================================================================ If you want to get a lot of essence, keep fighting them over and over. To kill all of them without getting bitten once, mash  with the flails until you're ABOUT to finish, jump and then . Repeat. If you do manage to get bitten, mash . Found in Chapters 17 and 18 on any mode ================================================================================ Crab Fiends ================================================================================ Watch out for their lasers and claw attacks. Especially watch out for that grab. Keep /\ing them and kill the others with the Ultimate Technique. Found in Chapter 17,18 on any mode ================================================================================ Flying Fiends ================================================================================ These are the guys with a scythe that float around and make a blue ring around you. They can teleport out of nowhere and break your guard with a downwards strike. Keep flying swallowing them and if possible try to do /\ and you may catch them in it and cause some major damage. Found in Chapters 7 on any mode. ================================================================================ Knightmares ================================================================================ These are guys are nightmares if you don't know what you're doing and a cakewalk if you do. Get out your Dabilahro, get close to them, hold block, wait for them to attack, COUNTERATTACK the first strike. Keep repeating. When he transforms, roll because the transformation hurts you if you're touching him. It still works even if they transformed. That wasn't so hard. Only found in Chapter 17 on any mode. ================================================================================ ================================================================================ BOSSES ================================================================================ 1. Murai ================================================================================ He's the buff guy in the very first level after you fight all those ninjas for no apparent reason. He got nunchakus but he's kickass with them. He got a couple moves. He has a three hit combo, rush attack, roll, and grab. To dodge the 3 hit combo, block or roll. he only grabs if you're close to him. His rush hurts, but that’s your best time to knock him. After he does a rush, dodge it and quickly press , /\,/\. You'll hit him with the ,/\ but not with the last one. He'll block it. Just keep repeating that and you'll beat him easily. Found in Chapter 1 ================================================================================ 2. Masakodo ================================================================================ He is the very intimidating flaming guy on a flaming horse who just somehow burned your only way out. WHATEVER MODE this is, he will always have warlocks with him. Cheap Bastard. there is a preset limit to them so you can kill them all if you want. He doesn't really have any moves except sometimes he gets you with his rope and slams you down real hard. That hurts so just hope he doesn't do that. Every time he's about to hit a wall, his horse gets his hind legs. Flying swallow him at that moment. Repeat. Found in Chapter 2 ================================================================================ 3. Doku ================================================================================ Just lose. But if you want to win, just keep dodging his sword combo, sword throw flamethrower, shockwave and his one hit kill stab. Hit after rush attack. If you do win, you'll unlock the next difficulty right away and mission mode. COMPLETE PROPS to Setho_O for way. Saw it on youtube. Beginning, charge up a UT but let go before it turns blue. When he does the wave, roll toward him and /\ and when you land, /\. He should do his 5 strike combo. Roll away and at the 5th strike roll to him and /\, when you land, /\. He should do the 5 hit combo again. Repeat. Worked amazingly. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKWqESor5HY Found in Chapter 2 ================================================================================ 4. Dynamo ================================================================================ He's the robotic bastard who shoots lasers at you. He got a couple of moves which are his laser shooting. Run in a circle to dodge it. His smack attack. He smacks you with his laser. Just block or roll. His very fast shooting. He only does it if he's close to dying. Roll jump in a circle. To hit him, get close to him. Block or roll from his smack and counter with ,,/\,/\. Keep repeating Found in Chapter 3 ================================================================================ 5. Hydracubus ================================================================================ He looks hard but he's real easy. All he does is jiggle his tentacles and swing em around. Block and roll away when he swings him because it can hurt. Just spam Flying Swallow on his tentacles till he has none. Then hold /\ to absorb the essence from the tentacles and Ultimate Technique his ass. It should take about roughly 1/3 of his life. When he's almost dead, he starts spouting green stuff from his mouth? Not sure about that but just don't stay too far from him and it won't hit. Found in Chapter 6 ================================================================================ 6. Bone Dragon ================================================================================ He is the giant bone dragon that you made alive by accident which you actually needed to progress through the game. Really? Wow. Anyway, his moves are throwing bones at you. Just roll to dodge. A chomp attack, I never got hit so I'm just gonna say roll away from the middle. A claw swipe, block or roll. And a tail swipe This HURTS so you should definitely avoid it. Time the jump (jump straight up).Or you can stand in the brown spot where his tail meets his backbone. Be careful because he does it several times in a row later on. Anyway to hurt him just hit his hands and legs with  or /\/\. Keep hitting the claws till all of them are muscle. Found in Chapter 7 ================================================================================ 7. Gamov ================================================================================ Too bad you have to play this guy with Rachel because in mission mode, you fight him with Ryu and it was 20 times easier (literally). When you're far away from him he shoots at you with his guns. To avoid this, just spin jump to him. When you're close to him, he either does a knife knife knife uppercut, knife kick, or grab. You want him to do the knife knife knife uppercut. You can either counterattack (you need timing) or spin away before the 3rd knife. You should be ale to hit him with  which hurts him a lot. If he's still on the ground go ahead and jump /\ him. That's cheapshotting, just like you. If you are really having trouble, guillotine throw him. It hurts him (again you need timing) Found in Chapter 8 ================================================================================ 8. Hydracubus (Again) ================================================================================ It's the exact same battle so I'll just copy and paste. He looks hard but he's real easy. All he does is jiggle his tentacles and swing em around. Block and roll away when he swings him because it Can hurt. Just spam Flying Swallow on his tentacles till he has none. Then hold /\ to absorb the essence from the tentacles and Ultimate Technique his ass. It should take about roughly 1/3 of his life. When he's almost dead, he starts spouting green stuff from his mouth? Not sure about that but just don't stay too far from him and it won't hit. Found in Chapter 9 ================================================================================ 9. Alma ================================================================================ Ahhhh. Alma. The most hardest boss in the entire game (IMO). The sister of Rachel. Good looks run in the family (at least later on). She has huge arsenal so listen up. She throws pillars at you, you roll ump and roll again when you land. She throws energy pink balls at you. Same as the pillars, roll jump, roll She makes a wall of pink. RUN THE HELL AWAY!!! If she gets you in it, say goodbye to a 3rd of your life. She also dives at you just block. And she can stomp on you. Just roll. Just keep on trying to flying swallow her. She'll dodge a lot, but once you hit her she'll be stunned. Now's the time to put some real damage. /\ her. It'll take out roughly a third or her life. Just keep dodging and bringing the pain till she gets her head exploded. Found in Chapter 9 ================================================================================ 10. Alternator ================================================================================ He's the upgraded version of Dynamo. I've killed you already so why you gotta come back. His new move is his best move, his rush. It hurts like a bitch and it's hard to see coming if you're close. I can't really find out a great way to beat -him except do the same thing with Dynamo BUT WATCH OUT FOR HIS RUSH! When he outs down his cannon, he's gonna do the rush. Get close to him, and keep /\/\ing him. Block his smacks and grab and roll when he puts his cannon down. You'll probably need elixirs if you get hit a lot by his rush. But thats the only thing you gotta worry about. Found in Chapter 10 ================================================================================ 11.Tanks ================================================================================ They sent the military so why wouldn't they send out tanks? Only things the tank does is shoot machine gun fire at you and mortars. Nothing less you should expect. To hurt it a lot, just pick up the APSDFS Cores (or whatever the letters are) and keep jumping and shooting at it. You'll know it'll fire a mortar at you if it's turret is aiming at you. Just jump or roll (or roll jump) out of the way After you kill one, they send another at you. Just do the same thing. Alternate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (email) "Really easy technique here. Shoot the tank with explosive arrows first to cause the guy inside the tank to hide (at this point, the tank is not moving for a few seconds) As soon as this happens, switch to your APDFS arrows and shoot 3 into the tank, then get ready to dodge right afterwards. Repeat this process and the tank will be gone in no time." Found in Chapter 11 ================================================================================ 12. Chopper ================================================================================ This thing can be some trouble if you don't have good timing with dodging the mortars or if you can't aim with the bow. He has a machine gun fire and fires mortars. The machine gun doesn't really hurt and can be blocked. The mortar can be dodged but needs great timing. As soon as it's close, roll jump away. When the chopper is far away, shoot APSFSD Cores at him with your strong bow. When it's very close to you. Keep roll jumping and firing the cores. It should go down soon. Found in Chapter 11 ================================================================================ 13.Thunder worm ================================================================================ He's that electric eel looking thing except much bigger and badder. When he throws an electric ball at you, roll (you can't block it). Don't go in the water and he does a swipe with his body. It hurts if it hits. But that's what you want him to do. As soon as he's gonna come down, roll toward him. Retaliate with  /\/\/\.Soon you'll face two at a time. You just gotta be more evasive. Alternate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (email) "(applies for 1 and 2). Really easy technique, follow the same technique you have listed except use the Dabilahro (make sure it's on level 3). Instead of your retaliation method, use this one: Square, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle. With the Dabilahro this does a nasty combo to the worm and within 4 times doing it, you can kill the worm in a matter of seconds." Found in Chapter 12 ================================================================================ 14.Paz Zuu ================================================================================ He's the boney bird who woke up from the brand of valor. He has a glitch that makes him really easy. But his moves still hurt like hell. he has a horizontal laser swipe, just roll forward to dodge it. He has a vertical laser swipe, just roll left or right. And he can rush at you just roll. When he's behind the stairs to your destination, keep flying swallowing his knees. He may hit you with wings or stomp on you. When he's on the other side. Quickly go behind him on the stairs. He should jump. When he lands do /\. If he jumps again, keep repeating till his head falls. Smack the head with /\/\/\. Repeat till he's cooked and ready to serve. Alternate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (email) "With my technique, this battle can end really quick. Make sure when you enter this battle, you have Explosive arrows and Incendirary Shurikens. The weapon of choice here is the Dragon Sword. As soon as the battle starts, run to the side Paz Zuu is on and get behind him (trust me). If you happen to be in the right spot once behind him, when Paz Zuu jumps up and down, you won't take damage. While he is jumping up and down, this is the perfect time to use a combo. Everytime Paz Zuu lands on the ground, jump in the air and use the Izuna Drop combo (although since this is a boss,you finish the combo with a different move) but this does take out a nice amount of his health. Repeat this same process EVERYTIME Paz Zuu is on the side when the battle first started (I believe it's where the steps are). At some point Paz Zuu will become weak and stick his head down for you to attack. When this happens, Equip your Vigorian Flails and Art of the Fire Wheels. Get next to his head,use the Fire wheels and do the combo : Forward+Triangle, Triangle, Triangle, Triangle) this will do great amounts of damage. And if Paz Zuu happens to fly up to his little hiding spot (where you can't reach him) simply take out the Explosive arrows and exploding shurikens and fire a few at him to do extra damage. Using these techniques, you can beat him in less than 4 minutes, sometimes 3. Found in Chapter 12 ================================================================================ 15.Doku ================================================================================ Ahhh. The son of a bitch who burned your village down. He's back but with a cool weapon. The kitetsu? WTF happened to the Dark Dragon Blade. Anyway, he's much easier this time around. He has a shockwave attack just jump to dodge it. A flamethrower, just roll away. A 5 hit combo, keep blocking and rolling, if he gets you, you're toast. And a sword throw, just block. Also a grab move which sucks your life, if you get caught by it mash . And lastly, his rush. You want him to do his rush so you can dodge and knock some sick damage to him. Retaliate with /\/\/\. He should lose a 1/5 or 1/6th of his life. Just keep repeating and you'll get his weapon. Hope we don't see him again. Alterntate Strategy by Matthew Dorn (again; Come on man, you're making me look bad) (e-mail) "Doku: (Second Encounter) From my experience, never wait for Doku to charge before attacking, that's way to risky. An easier method is to make sure you have the Dabilahro and it is upgraded to level 3. Also make sure you have the Armlet of Celerity. Here's how you kill Doku real quick: Equip the Armlet of Celerity and Dabilahro, Stand away from him (about the distance where Doku is able to throw his sword at you) and simply stand there while charging the Dabilahro. As soon as you see Doku throw his sword, release the charge button, you will jump over the sword (without taking damage) and take a nice chunk out of his health. The same technique applies when Doku blows his Fire breath, while he's doing it, charge up the Dabilahro and release. This same technique can be used again when Doku stabs the ground with his sword, jump over his ground wave after you have charged up the Dabilahro. So basically you can use the same technique on Doku for 3 of his attacks. You might not get it the first try but believe me, IT WORKS! and it Takes him down QUICK!" Found in Chapter 13 ================================================================================ 16.Yotunfrau ================================================================================ He's the leg-less fiend with the weird mouth. He has a donkey kong smack like move where he summons ice under you and hit you. Just keep rolling. He can grab you when he puts both his arms back. Roll cause it does hurt. His punches and walk are the same thing basically except the punches have a longer range. Just roll to dodge. To hit him, you can use the flying swallow on his back after he does a move or you can hit him with /\/\/\. Either way works fine. Repeat till you get the eye of ice. Found in Chapter 15 ================================================================================ 17. Flame worms ================================================================================ Oh no, two worms with one life bar. They're like the thunder worms except jokes. They're only different move is they shoot a ring of fire. Just jump through it to dodge (like a dog) Do the same thing you did with the thunder worms. Roll when they smack themselves down and then /\/\/\ them. Found in Chapter 15 ================================================================================ 18.Smaugan ================================================================================ He's the giant fire dragon who came out of the lava. When you start the battle, get your dabilahro out and smack him /\ or something like that. Then right away, jump and /\ the button to make you go to the top. Stand in the right platform and stay in the left top corner. Smaugan has a chomp move that really hurts but you're untouchable by it here. He has a flame attack where he flaps his wings and a fire blasts through. You'll need timing to dodge it. And lastly, he has a move where he breathes fire horizontally. Just jump. When you SEE him leaning his head in, hold /\ till you're red and let go. It should hurt him like hell. Just keep waiting for the lean in and Ultimate Technique him. Also if you DO get hit by the chomp, mash  to minimize damage. Found in Chapter 15 ================================================================================ 19.Alma Awakened ================================================================================ She's back and worse than before. I guess those new spider legs don't work out. She's much easier than before Alma but she can still kill you. She has the same moves as Alma except the grab (thank GOD) but she has different grab that doesn't work as well. When she's on her legs, she can rush at you or throw pink balls at you. You want her to rush so you can flying swallow when she's done with it. If you hit, she'll be stunned like Alma. BUT, don't do /\. Instead, do /\ or you can Gleaming Blade her (360 degrees, hold /\). That should knock off a chunk. Just keep dodging and wait till she does it. Then kill her. Found in Chapter 16 ================================================================================ 20. Ghost Doku ================================================================================ Great. Now we gotta battle him again. He's easier this time around. He has the same 5 hit combo and flamethrower. But he two grabs, he launches his hand at you, you can escape by mashing buttons. The other one is unavoidable when you get caught. All you gotta do is just keep on /\/\/\ him. He can't block them all. Now prepared to become something. Another strategy you can use is to back up, dodge his swords and grab, and wait for him to cross his arms. then you can charge a gleaming blade (for just 2 secs) and it'll hurt a lot. Haven't tried but people say its good. Found in Chapter 17 ================================================================================ 21.Hydracubus (Again Again) ================================================================================ Copy and paste He looks hard but he's real easy. All he does is jiggle his tentacles and swing em around. Block and roll away when he swings him because it can hurt. Just spam Flying Swallow on his tentacles till he has none. Then hold /\ to absorb the essence from the tentacles and Ultimate Technique his ass. It should take about roughly 1/3 of his life. When he's almost dead, he starts spouting green stuff from his mouth? Not sure about that but just don't stay too far from him and it won't hit. Found in Chapter 18 ================================================================================ 22. Yotunfrau ================================================================================ Same exact battle. Copy and paste He's the leg-less fiend with the weird mouth. He has a donkey kong smack like move where he summons ice under you and hit you. Just keep rolling. He can grab you when he puts both his arms back. Roll cause it does hurt. His punches and walk are the same thing basically except the punches have a longer range. Just roll to dodge. To hit him, you can use the flying swallow on his back after he does a move or you can hit him with /\/\/\. Either way works fine. Repeat till you get the eye of ice. Found in Chapter 18 ================================================================================ 23. Marbus ================================================================================ Oh this is one tough cookie to crack. He's got a number of moves. 4 Energy balls, roll jump to avoid. A stomp, roll to avoid. Spinning top dive, you'll need timing for this but PLEASE DONT GET HIT, it's virtually your only chance to knock damage in it. Also, he can summon fiends but that’s good. Use /\/\ on the fiends When he crashes from the spinning top dive. Quickly /\ and roll away because he has a very hurtful grab. You have to play a waiting game with him to win. Wait for dive, retaliate, roll away. Also, when he stomps you can dodge and quickly do /\/\. It'll hurt him very little but at least it's some damage or if there's essence around, you can UT him after he stomps you. Found in Chapter 18 ================================================================================ 24. Emperor Pt.1 ================================================================================ This huge guy is actually a very easy guy to beat. He has damaging attacks but they're all easy to dodge. When he makes beams appear, move all the way back with your rock. To hurt him, hit his shoulders and chest. When you hit one spot enough, it'll break and just go to the next spot. It's pretty easy. When he makes the beams horizontally, stay in between the top and bottom and go up when necessary and down when necessary. Just dodge and hit the beams. You should know some combos to hurt him by now. Found in Chapter 18 ================================================================================ 25. Emperor Pt.2 ================================================================================ This is a big guy with skulls around him. In the beginning of the battle but out your APSDSF Cores and viggorian flails. He will be sending out all his skulls at you, just keep knocking them down like the ghost fish. After most of the skulls are dead he'll send his huge head at you. Dodge it and VERY QUICKLY shoot a APSDFS Core at his face. It should kill him in ONE shot. I was either very lucky or he really sucks that much. If he doesn't die, keep shooting all the arrows, explosive shurikens and windmill at him until he gets on land. Then murder him there. Found in Chapter 18 ================================================================================ 26. Murai ================================================================================ The SOB who told you to go save your village. Turns out he was the damn Dark Diciple (according to Gamov, poor Gamov). He got the Dark Dragon Blade and he's a damn greater fiend. he has a pretty big arsenal of moves like shurikens all at once or one by one. Roll for the all at once and roll jump for the one by one. A torpedo type attack, roll and then hit him  and roll away. When he's going like "huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhh" he's doing his rush, roll away and hurt him bad with /\. Later when he's close to dying, he'll summon a dragon that'll make a shockwave. To dodge stay out of the middle and jump when you see him coming. To hurt him after he's done a move, QUICKLY flying swallow him and it if hits, he'll stunned for a second. Combo him /\ or /\/\/\. Just dodge his attacks and flying swallow him and combo. Found in Chapter 19 ================================================================================ ================================================================================ EXTRA BOSSES ================================================================================ Clone 1 ================================================================================ This guy is only fought in main story on hard mode. I played him in mission mode He has the True Dragon Sword. He has a lot of damaging attacks like flying swallow, /\, Izuna Drop, exploding shurikens and ninpo. Keep blocking at all times and when he's open, Izuna Drop him. When he's on the floor, you can't hit him, but you can back up and charge a Ultimate Technique. Unleash it and hit him with Izuna Drop. Best thing to do is just keep Izuna Dropping him. When he does ninpo, back off QUICK and time when the fireball will come with precision or you will pay. Just be careful of ninpo since when you're near him when he charges up, you'll get hurt. Found in Mission Mode, challenge #31 ================================================================================ Clone 2 ================================================================================ This time, he has the Dabilahro, which is helleva stronger attack. But the good thing is he's really slow now. He's going to do the /\ with the Dabilahro and when you're not close, he'll shoot explosive arrows. Same thing you did with above to beat him. Izuna Drop him. When he is doing the /\ combo, block and roll, block and roll. After he's done, he's vulnerable so Izuna Drop him there. Just be careful of ninpo since when you're near him when he charges up, you'll get hurt. Found in Mission Mode, challenge #32 ================================================================================ Clone 3 ================================================================================ This is the easiest one since he's using the vigoorian flails. He uses the /\ combo for the flails. Again, simply block and roll, after he's done with the combo, Izuna Drop him. Just be careful of ninpo since when you're near him when he charges up, you'll get hurt. Found in Mission Mode, challenge #33 ================================================================================ Ishtaros ================================================================================ She is the hardest and most annoying boss (IMO). She has a laser attack that can't be blocked, a grab that hurts, a charge attack (not a rush), and the most oddest attack of all, she swings onto a pole outside of the arena, keeps swinging, and jumps off at a very difficult thing to dodge. When she's doing the laser, roll away quickly. When she's swinging, roll backwards and wait for her to jump off and AS SOON as she's going to land, roll. It's very hard to do but once you do, you'll finally dodge the nasty attack. If you manage to dodge it, immediately /\ her. When she charges at you, roll and /\. After she does any combo, /\ RIGHT AFTER she's done. Then you'll knock some damage to her. Found in Mission Mode, challenge # 26 ================================================================================ Nicchae ================================================================================ This greater fiend has the exact same moves as Alma BUT is 2 times stronger than Alma. Still do the same thing with Alma but PLEASE watch out for the grab, dive, stomp, and rocks and everything else. Found in Mission Mode, challenge #36 (Defeat Nicchae AND Alma) ================================================================================ ================================================================================ If you have suggestions, for any enemies, please email them to my email up there I left it up at the top. ================================================================================ ================================================================================ Thanks to: VampireHorde- for giving me my skills and strategy for Alternator 8chameleonviii- For teaching me good strategy for Ishtaros MeGaXmAn27- For telling me Izuna Drop mermaids, grab moves ninjas, and gamov strategy Setho_O- For flawless Chapter 2 Doku strat Nikar2-For Ghost Doku strat (he said it first on the thread) Gojira346- For telling me Bone Dragon trick TeamNinja- For making this game and putting it on Playstation 3 (exclusively)Now bring Ninja Gaiden II over to PS3 Matthew Dorn- Giving me strats for Doku 2, Paz Zuu, Tanks, and Electric Worms Me- For writing this in a couple hours You- For reading it Gamefaqs- For accepting it ================================================================================ ================================================================================ Good PS3 games coming out (IMO) Kilzone II MGS4 Ratchet and Clank Unreal Tournament Army of Two Assasin's Creed Call of Duty 4 NBA 2K8 NFS Prostreet Stranglehold Simpsons Game Prototype LittleBigPlanet Devil May Cry 4 Turok Uncharted Haze Go PS3!
