You're tasked to kill the 10 people above you. Armed with a Beam Katana he won on an internet auction site, can you take him to the top? =============================================================================== Controls - On Foot =============================================================================== Nunchuck Analog Stick Move Travis C Camera re-focus Z Toggles First Person View Wiimote D-Pad Camera Adjustment A Interact w/ environment Saber Dig (non-concrete areas) B Run (Memories of Child required, uses "electricity") 1 Calls for Schpel Tiger 2 Toggles Map on/off + Pause/Menu - n/a =============================================================================== Controls - Schpel Tiger =============================================================================== Nunchuck Analog Stick Steer Bike C Camera Change Z Boost (uses electricity) Wiimote D-Pad "Down" Get off Bike A Get on Bike/Accelerate B Brake/Reverse 1 n/a 2 Toggles Map on/off + Pause/Menu - n/a Advance Driving Techniques Boost Start To do this unnecessary move, put the bike in reverse, then quickly accelerate to start driving with a boost of speed. Bike Jump Flick your wiimote upwards (Think pull back on a fishing rod), and the Schpel Tiger will gracefully soar into the sky! =============================================================================== Controls - Battle System =============================================================================== Nunchuck Analog Stick Move Travis C Camera re-focus Z Lock-on/Block (hold) Wiimote D-Pad Camera Adjustment Evasive roll (if locked-on is enabled) A Blade slash B Melee Attack 1 Enter electricity recharge stance 2 Toggles Map on/off + Pause/Menu - n/a I. Battle Techniques Ia. Stances High Stance Hold the wiimote so that the IR sensor is pointing upward. Low Stance Hold the wiimote so that the IR sensor is pointing forward. High attacks will beat Low blocks, and vice versa. Ib. Charged Attacks Holding the "A" button will charge your katana. The longer you hold it the more powerful the attack will be, but the more electricity you will use. High Stance A power vertical slash that knocks down an enemy, Low Stance A horizontal swipe, it will knock down enemies, but not long enough for a ground finisher. It should be noted that different katanas will have different charge moves, some charged horizontal slashes with certain models will fire projectiles. Ic. Death Blow Mode As you whittle your enemy's energy down, you might notice a dial with a direction in the middle. This signals you've just entered the Death Blow mode. Complying with the command will give you a spin at the slots (see subsection III, in this section for more info on slots). If you're lucky the death blow could knock down or kill other enemies in the area. Id. Down Attack If you happen to knock down your enemy during the fight, there is a good chance you can finish them off before they get up. just simply approach them and hit the A button when prompted by the screen and that's one less grunt to worry about. Ie. Emergency Evade/Circle Around When you lock onto the enemy (Z Button), pressing any direction (but up, cause rolling towards your opponent isn't a battle tested strategy...) on the D-pad will cause you to roll in that direction. If you time* it properly, your roll can confuse your opponent, giving you the opening you need to strike. Emergency evade is your friend, it's your savior, use it often! *Note: Currently I'm still not unsure when this point is, I suspect it is accomplished by rolling just as you block your opponent's attack. II. Grapples Suda51 really...and I mean really likes wrestling. So by proxy Travis also likes wrestling. Grapple can only be intiated when the enemy has entered a dizzy state. The only way to trigger a dizzy state is to attack your foes with melee attacks (B button). Once dizzy, Travis can initiate a grapple by pressing the B button on the wiimote. Following the directions on the screen move the nunchuck and wiimote to perform the move. Failure to follow the sequences will give the enemy time to recover. Successfully executing grapples will leave many grunts vulnerable to down attacks. It should note that if the grunt's energy is completely depleted by the grapple, the ending animation will be diferent. The beam katana will impale the enemy as it lands, killing them. Known Grapple Moves German Suplex Scoop Tombstone Piledriver Power Bomb Powerslam Brainbuster Huracarrana DDT III. Slots aka Darkside Mode Life's a gamble right? So when you finish off your opponent via the death blow dial (not a ground finish or a wrestling finish), a slot machine will appear! If you're lucky enough to line up 3 items (it's random), you'll be treated to the following effects. The length of these effects will be indicated by the Tiger on the upper-right of the screen, when it reaches the goal the effect wears off. It should be noted that when these effects are in place the amount of money you earn per kill increases. Powerful and Profitable, what a great combination! It should be noted that the slots only happen in Rank Matches, not assassin gigs nor free missions. Result Effect 3 Cherries Travis yells "This is the End!" and time is slowed. 3 Bars Travis yells "Raspberry Chocolate Sundae!", and he screen turns black and white, and when you are in the vicinity of an enemy, a command will pop up. Hit the proper key, and Travis will kill the enemy. Hit the wrong key, Travis will just taunt the opponent. 3 Bells Travis yells "Blueberry Cheese Brownie!", a crosshair will appear on your screen, pressing "A" will cause your beam katana to fire a projectile. If the projectile hits your enemy they will die instantly. 3 Grasshoppers Travis yells "Strawberries on the Shortcake!", Travis goes "Super Saiyan" and any attack that connects creates a spinning death blow dial, slash in any direction to finish your foe. 3 Sevens A demonic laugh is heard, and a seven is added under your electricity counter. At the end of the ranked match, it adds 10,000 LB for each seven you've received. If you do get 3 sevens, the manual shows that Travis will scream "Anarchy in the Galaxy". The screenshot in the manual shows explosions on the screen. Perhaps this is a screen clearing effect? IV. Items You might be the epitome of cool, but that doesn't mean you're invulnerable. Littered through out the stages there are boxes containing items to keep you alive. IVa. Pink Boxes can contain either Slice of Pizza Restores a portion of your life Pizza Pie Restores all of your life IVb. Blue Boxes can contain either Small Battery Restores one block of electricity Whole Battery Restores all electricity IVc. Treasure boxes can contain Money You know what that's used for... Cards Pictures of Lucha Masks and Concept Art (2nd playthrough) Heart Amplifier Increases your life bar (Given only after you've beaten the boss at the end of each assassin fight.) =============================================================================== Controls - Grastonberry Shooting Game =============================================================================== This mini game is only played with the wiimote, so you remove the nunchuck, or the game will not let you proceed.

This is where you can save, view the cards you've picked up from battles, change clothes, truly a versatile pad. ========================= Living Room ========================= Toilet Save your game and relieve yourself, so so practical! TV Watch video tapes that you've accquired, and who knows you might even learn something. Who says TV rots your brain? Fridge Refill your energy with a quick snack (Kinda useless since you can't really get hurt in the hub world)!

Drawer This is where you can change your beam katana. Map Find the points of interests in Santa Destroy or check out your results from assassination gigs and free missions. Telephone Find out information on your next UAA bout, or find out what movies Travis owes to Beef Head vidoes. It's more or less useless outside of cutscenes. =============================================================================== Section - UAA Ranking and Walkthrough =============================================================================== This section will make sure your climb to #1 will go as smoothly as possible. Basic strategies regarding boss fights is as follows, most of their moves will often leave them open as it completes. So resist the urge of rushing them whenever you can, as they will block most of your attacks. Any move that has the enemy surrounded by a yellow glow is unblockable. That applies to both grunts and bosses. The UAA is always nice enough to leave you a full battery and a slice of pizza should you run low. It should be noted that you will NEVER need to enter the fight without full life, and here is why. In the pre-boss area, you can enter and leave the save point and both the battery and the pizza in the area will respawn. ============================= Name: Death Metal UAA Rank: 10 Location: Mansion (outside of Santa Destroy) Entry Fee: n/a Cards: 01-05 (1st Play) 51-54 136 (2nd Play) Troop Type: Men in Black Suits ============================== I. Stage Notes: None really...look for a detailed walkthrough in a later revision. II. Card Locations 001 Outside of Death Metal's study/office (3rd Fl.) 002 Inside of Death Metal's study/office (3rd Fl.) 003 The atrium after the entrance hall (1st Fl.) 004 Turn left after you exit the atrium (1st Fl.) 005 By pool entrance aka the boss entrance (1st Fl.) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Blade A couple of swipes and then a downward strike. Evasive roll left Combo or right, wait till he does the downward strike and go in for the attack! Afterimage Once Death Metal has been dropped to about 50%, he summons two clones of him. These clones have about the same energy as a grunt, Try to isolate them and kill them. The tattoos and glowing swords might be intimidating, but don't let it get to you. He's actually very predictable and has a limited moveset. Have patience, wait for openings and the number 10 spot is as good as yours! ============================= Name: Dr. Peace UAA Rank: 09 Location: Destroy Stadium Entry Fee: 150,000 LB Cards: 06-10 (1st Play) 55-57, 137 (2nd Play) Troop Type: Baseball Fans in "The Warriors" Jerseys ============================= I. Stage Notes: Batter Up! There will be 2 sections where the grunts are lined up ready to throw baseballs at you. Travis, the sportsman will oblige them. This triggers the batting mini game! 3 pitches to knock out the entire row. Aim for the Bleachers! If you fail to kill all the grunts with the 3 pitches, it will revert to the hack and slash mode. II. Card Locations 006 Make a left when you enter the stage (1st Fl.) 007 Past first battling section left side (2nd Fl.) 008 2nd battling area (3rd Fl.) 009 Near vending machine by elevator to 4th fl. (3rd Fl.) 010 Near E-01 sign enroute to the boss (4th fl.) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Trick Perched upon the pitcher's mound, Dr. Peace will rapidly fire Shooting a barrage of bullets. There are two versions of the barrage, one where he expends all his shots in a single direction and the other where he shoots covering a 90 degree area. The rotating version ends with a pair of power shots. All of these bullets easily avoidable if you circle strafe, and if you do get caught, use an evasive roll to create some distance. Go in for the attack when he starts to reload. Charged Dr. Peace will glow (he's invulnerable in this state), he'll Shot draw one pistol and fire. Circle strafing will keep you safe and if you're close, feel free to attack after he's fired. It should be noted that the bullet's slipstream will hurt you if you touch it. Quickdraw When he is out of energy he'll shoot you to knock you back, charge at him to trigger this event, wait for a button to appear and hit it, screw it up and he'll shoot you. Succeed and you're now the 9th Ranked Asssassin! Circle strafe is your friend. The good doctor refuses to get off the pitcher's mound. Attack him when he reloads and you'll eventually get to the showdown. ============================= Name: Shinobu UAA Rank: 08 Location: Santa Destroy High School Entry Fee: 200,000 LB Cards: 11-15 (1st play) 58-61, 138 (2nd Play Troop Type: Bandana'd toughs with fishnet shirts and flannel vests. ============================= I. Stage Notes: Now you're playing with...FIRE! Once inside the school building you will encounter grunts with flaming 2x4s. If they hit you with it you will be engulfed with flames. Find the nearest fire extinguisher to put yourself out. A Shocking Development! After you exit the 1st area of the school, you're confronted by an enemy with those flaming 2x4s, but this time the grunt set off the sprinkler system! Blocking your entry into the gym and shorting your beam katana out, and even worst it's shocking you (Why Travis doesn't put it away is beyond me). Run to the utility closet and shut down the sprinkler system to gain access to the gym. II. Card Locations 011 Right side of the school building (Outside) 012 First right after entering the building (1st Fl.) 014 Left of the gym exit (1st floor) 013 Behind staircase leading to 2nd Fl. (1st Fl.) 015 Hallway before the right turn that leads to save point (2nd Fl.) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Taunt Shinobu seems to love running her mouth off, but the reason why I included this in techniques is because while she's performing the taunt, she does a sword twirl...it can damage you if you get too close. Thrust You will see her charge up, and she'll quickly thrust her sword at you. Easily avoidable. Sonic She sheaths her sword, only to quickly unsheath it, creating a Sword projectile. It moves pretty quickly, so roll out of the way. As the match draws on, she can also use a variant of this move, where she'll fire 9 projectiles at you. "Sky High" Shinobu does a somersault, and slashes at you. If it connects, she'll hit you a couple more times before knocking you away. "RenGoKen" A horizontal slash that knocks you back if she connects with it. "GenGoKen" She'll charge at you with a vertical slash. It's unblockable and if it connects, it more or less finishes you. Avoid at all costs! She usually uses this towards the end of the fight. Shinobu definitely mixes her movements up quite a bit. Sometimes she'll be passively approaching you, while other times she will rush you. If you keep your distance, the likelihood of using sonic blade increases. She'll create some distance between you and her, by vaulting over you if you get too aggressive. Be wary when her energy is low, as she does have a instant kill move "GenGoKen". If you see her with her sword sheathed, and the charging effects, run! Pay careful attention your surroundings, I know I've been hit by her attacks needlessly because I circle strafed into one of the many pillars that litter her arena. ============================= Name: Destroyman UAA Rank: 07 Location: Bear Hug Film Studio (accessed via subway) Entry Fee: 250,000 LB Cards: 16-20 (1st play) Troop Type: Men with Camo Bandanas over their mouths (Subway) Men with Bags over their heads (Bear Hug Film Studios) ============================= I. Stage Notes: None really...look for a detailed walkthrough in a later revision. II. Card Locations 016 First left, by the turnstiles (B1) 017 Between the 4th and 5th pair of girders on departing station platform (B2) 018 Between the 4th and 5th pair of girders on the destination platform (B2) 019 By the bathroom area in the destination station (B1) 020 After the first warehouse of Bear Hug Film Studios. Make a left, then another left. (1st Fl.) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Destroy Using his might, Destroyman smashes the ground, causing a small Punch shockwave to spread in the arena. Destroy This is the move Destroyman uses when he shook your hand, Spark pretty easy to avoid. Use this to your advantage. Destroy This Hadouken style move can be avoided with an evasive roll or Cannon circle strafe. Flying It's not really flight...it's more like Hanging Destroyman, but Destroyman enough semantics. After you deplete enough energy from him, he'll activate some controls that lift him off the battlefield. Attack the flashing lights to unhitch the hanging items. Destroyman's hook is controlled by the Klaxon on the Eastern Wall (you entered from the south, the green wall is the north). Until you knock him down, he'll be hanging up there launching firing the Destroy Cannon at you. Destroy Eye Beams...he's got Eye Beams! can be easily avoided with either Beam evasive rolls, circle strafe or you can stand behind some of items littered in the arena (crates, tables, etc). Destroy If he's doing his pose and glowing it could only mean one thing Buster He's ready to fire his...uh Crotch Beam. Similar to the Destroy Beam, but it hurts a lot more. Same techniques can be used to avoid it and if you're close enough, he's open at the end of the Buster. The set is your friend. Position yourself strategically and most of his more powerful attacks (Cannon, Beam and Buster) will be blocked. During the flying Destroyman sequence, if you want to play it safe. You can stand in front of the strobe light, let him fire the Destroy Cannon, and roll away, this will destroy the klaxon instantly. Take advantage of the giant opening he has when he's doing destroy spark. ============================= Name: Holly Summers UAA Rank: 06 Location: Bodyslam Beach Entry Fee: 300,000 LB Cards: 21-25 (1st play) Troop Type: Soldiers ============================= I. Stage Notes: I hope you don't mine...I left you a present! There are areas with mines buried in the sand. If you picked up the "memories of three" upgrade from Lovikov(See Bar Model Plastic), this section won't be such a big deal. Regardless, be wary of where you tread. II. Card Locations 021 Turn left when you enter the stage (1st Section) 022 By lifeguard tower (2nd section) 023 By the second staircase (3rd section) 024 By lifeguard tower (4th section) 025 On the tower next to the bathroom/save point (5th section) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Shovel Combo Knife Holly will throw a set of rocket propelled knives at you. It Toss spreads as it travels, evasive roll should take care of it. Trenches Before the match, Holly dug holes on the beach, if fall in and follow the command to dig yourself out. If you fail to do it in time the grenade she tosses will blow you up. You can uncover trenches using your beam katana. Sand Toss Assassins don't fight fair, and if Holly needs to create space, she's willing throw some sand in your face. If she connects you will be coughing for a bit, allowing her to create some distance between you and her. Bomb Jump If you get too close, Holly will try to create space by dropping a bomb on the floor, striking it with her shovel. The explosion will set her back a little and hurt you if you're caught in the vicinity. Missile Putting down the shovel and striking a pose, Holly launches several Barrage missiles from her thigh, use evasive roll to dodge it. Grenade & After you whittle her life to about 25%, Holly might jump on top Missile of the rock on the northeastern part of the arena. She'll throw Barrage several grenades onto the battlefield and she'll fire rockets. I found the best way to avoid this attack is to actually drop into the trenches. Environmental hazzards play a big part of her fight. Either find out the hard way or use your katana to reveal the trenches. If you're feeling brave, you can attack her after the missile barrage, but it's not recommended because you never really know if all the missiles have landed. She's most vulnerable when she does her shovel attacks. Either block and retaliate or sidestep and attack. Occasionally she will try to cover the trenches with a shovel of sand she's open for attack there. Thankfully this technique doesn't completely obscure the trench, but rather leaves a slight shadow on the ground. ============================= Name: Letz Shake UAA Rank: 05 Location: Some deserted highway (accessed via shaft at Atomic Drop Ward) Entry Fee: 350,000 LB Cards: 26-30 (1st play) Troop Type: Darth Vader-ish Shock Troopers ============================= I. Stage Notes: This literally is a linear stage, chase after that shadowy figure! There are 9, beam katana weilding troopers in the cooridor. II. Card Locations 026 Turn around when you enter, it's by the ladder (B1) 027 Left of you when you reach the bottom of the stairs (B2) 028 Right of you when you reach the bottom of the stairs (B2) 029 Before you recieve your call from Sylvia (B2) 030 Near boss entrance (B2) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Letz Shake and his Machine Dr. Shake gets taken out by a non-sanction fighter, Henry. Enjoy the cutscene though. ============================= Name: Harvey Moiseiwitsch Volodarskii UAA Rank: 04 Location: Theater (accessed via subway) Entry Fee: 400,000 LB Cards: 31-35 (1st play) Troop Type: Men with Camo Bandanas over their mouths ============================= I. Stage Notes: Dreaming of a...video game? Who doesn't love sleeping on a train? Well once you doze off prepare to play Travis' Dream. Remove the wiimote and get ready to play the shooter travis is dreaming of. Beat it and you'll wake up at your stop. II. Card Locations 031 By ladies room in the departing station (B1) 032 End of the platform of the departing station (B2) 033 Behind you on the beginning of the destination platform (B2) 034 By bench near staircase of destination station (B1) 035 Between the 2 sets of turnstiles at destination station (B1) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Stick Periodically he'll attempt to stab you with one of his weapons. Thrust This is easily blockable and leaves him open. Doves Like any magican, Harvey summons doves that will kamikaze themselves at Travis. Lock-on and circle strafe to dodge it. As usual if you're close enough to him, put some beam katana to flesh and take a few whacks. Audio Cue for this move is "Check it out!" Teleport He disappears and re-appears in a cloud of smoke, this is used as a keep away tactic. Screen Another one of Harvey's parlor tricks, it turns your screen upside Inversion down, messing with the controls. It lasts for a short period of time. "Welcome to the nightmare!" is the audio cue for this move. Twister Harvey twirls around with his blades extended, the only way to avoid it is to run away. Undo Lock-on and run away. Box Harvey will disappear, and a spotlight will be on the stage. Escape If the spotlight catches you, you'll be forced to participate in another one of Harvey's tricks. He puts you and a grenade in a box. Follow the commands to attempt to escape the box. If you fail, you die. The audio cue that starts this move is "Now that's Entertainment...Music Begin" If you fail you die automatically. Harvey is the only boss in the game that uses screen distortions as part of his repetoire. The screen inversion is annoying, but he doesn't really do the Twister move when it happens. The biggest concern of the match is when he does the box trick...it's usually very hard to avoid and unlike with holly, if you screw up the button press sequence you die instantly. ============================= Name: Speed Buster UAA Rank: 03 Location: Speed City (accessed via bus terminal) Entry Fee: 450,000 LB Cards: 36-40 (1st play) Troop Type: Guys in purple suits and leopard print shirts ============================= I. Stage Notes: None really...look for a detailed walkthrough in a later revision. II. Card Locations 036 Turn right when you enter the stage (1st Fl.) 037 From stage entrance, past the first bus, make a right (1st Fl.) 038 Left side of the bus terminal building (1st Fl.) 039 By the restroom/save point of this level (1st Fl.) 040 3/4th into the map of the boss run, in the alleys on the left side. It's in the same section as the utility pole you knock down to effectively end the fight. (1st Fl.) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: It's not a boss, it's really more of a gauntlet. Duck into alleys to avoid for beam cannon as you slowly make your way to her. If you're clumsy enough to get caught in a blast, rapidly press "A" to minimize the electricity. Keep your katana charged at all times. There will be a point where there will be no more alleys to duck into anymore (about 3/4 into the map), on the left side,there is a row of utility poles. Break the first one to set off the chain of events that will put her beam cannon out of commisson. Run towards the end of the main street and avenge your master! This section is easier if you have the "Memories of Three", as any door that can be broken will appear as red dots on your map. ============================= Name: Bad Girl UAA Rank: 02 Location: Destroy Stadium Entry Fee: 500,000 LB Cards: 41-45 (1st play) Troop Type: Baseball Fans with "The Warriors" Jerseys (Stadium) Gimps (Batting Cage) ============================= I. Stage Notes: Vehicular Homicide Once you've jumped your bike onto the field, some goons will jump out to stop your fun! Show them the true power of Schpel Tiger and ground them into the field...sure the groundskeeper won't appreciate it, but hey it's either you or them. I hope you have a lead foot, because if the enemies manage to knock you off the bike, prepare to have to run all over field to trigger the waves of enemies. After several waves a trap door will open leading you to the sanctuary of Assassin #2! II. Card Locations 041 Right Field (1st Fl.) 042 Left Field (1st Fl.) 043 Behind Home Plate (1st Fl.) 044 Cooridor leading to the boss (B1) 045 Cooridor leading to the boss (B1) II. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Bat Swing Swings her bat 4-8 times, easily dodgeble and creates an opening. Ground Not exactly aiming for the fence, but bludgeoning you will Smash do the trick. This move creates an opening when she misses. Twirl & Bad Girl, twirls her bat (It will hurt if you get too close.) Smash then she does and unblockable smash that knocks you back if it connects. Counter If she's getting into the batting stance and she's not near the batting cage. Do not hit her, any strike will be returned with a crack to your noggin via her Louisville Slugger. Gimp If she's in the batting cage area, chances are she's Summon winding up to smack a gimp into the arena. Avoid the flying gimp and take them out like any regular enemy. Possum Bad Girl really lives up to her name, when she's taking too much of a beating from you, she will feign defeat. You might think...Free hits! Well don't! Be a little bit chivalrous and let her regain her composure...cause if you stay too close, a cinematic will kick in where she'll trip you then straddle you (get your mind out of the gutter.) and pummel you with her bat. Once she's done, she'll throw in a kick for good measure. Needless to say this is more or less an instant kill. Fire Bat After a taking her down to a certain percentage in health, Bad Girl will light her bat on fire. It adds a new attack to her arsenal. Jumping With her newly lit bat, Bad Girl now does a jumping strike! Ground A shockwave will be generated upon impact and it can hurt Smack you. Evasive Roll away to avoid and attack if you're close. Bad Girl looks harmless, but that's all the pink and lace talking. She tends to wildly swing a lot, leaving her open at the end of her barrage. Make a point of strafing constantly when she starts to summon a gimp, as they do hurt a lot. If she's lying prone on the ground, stay away until she curses, it's the signal that it's safe to attack her again. Even though her bat is on fire, it will not ignite you if she connects with it, but still make it a point to avoid it. Otherwise you should have no trouble disciplining the number 2 assassin. ============================= Name: Darkstar UAA Rank: 01 Location: Entry Fee: 550,000 LB Cards: 46-50 (1st play) Troop Type: Darth Vader-ish Shock Troopers ============================= I. Stage Notes: Motorbikin! Enjoy that brisk run to the highway entrance? Well, chase after those guys who stole your bike. Avoid the random boxes littered on the highways. Be wary of the firebombs that the other bikers drop. Run into the enemy bikers to take them out, or just let them takethemselves out by colliding with crates (Thanks crappy AI!). You'll eventually exit the highway into a country road. Avoid fallen trees by bike jumping them. This bike sequence ends when you reach a draw bridge, follow the on screen instructions to speed up then jump the bike again to clear the bridge and finish the section. Use the Force, Lu...I mean Travis! Once you're in the spooky, spooky forest you'll find that taking certain roads will cause you cause you to loop back to the beginning of the map. But fear not, a friendly apparition will point the way, however be quick about it, cause they'll only show for a brief period of time. If you're that slow and miss him every time, here's the paths you're supposed to take. Right, Left, Right, Left (Pretty hard right?) II. Card Locations 046 Behind you once you enter the forest (1st Fl.) 047 2nd Fork in the forest, next to the helpful apparition (1st Fl.) 048 3rd Fork in the forest, next to the helpful apparition (1st Fl.) 049 4th Fork in the forest, next to the helpful apparition (1st Fl.) 050 Path after the 4th fork, next to the letter the helpful apparition leaves behind. (1st Fl.) III. Boss Techniques & Strategy: No strategy again, since this assassin is taken out by another non-sanctioned fighter, Jeane. Unlike Henry you do have to fight her so here's some of her techniques. ============================= Name: Jeane ============================= Combo This the attack she uses most often, it consists of three into Palm punches, two kicks and then an unblockable palm strike. Strike Rainbow She periodically does a high arching kick, it's blockable, kick and leaves her open for a short time frame. Charging She will gather energy, and then charge at you with a palm Palm strike at blinding speed. This is unblockable. Strike Double She starts using it in the second phase of the fight, it's Charge charging palm strike, followed up with a slide kick. Both Strike moves are unblockable. Stomp A move she starts using after the 1st time she shrinks the ring, it's a move you've seen before from other bosses. A stomp that generates a shockwave. Triple After she shrinks the ring for the 2nd time. She adds a second Charge charging palm to the combo, and you guessed it...still Strike unblockable. Jeane moves at blinding speed and its pretty hard to pin down. Look for openings when she's done doing palm strikes. The stomp leaves her open as well. At the end of the match, you two will have a blade clash. She will win no matter how hard you try. Once you see that she's punched you in the chest, the final cinematic will play out and congratulations you've beaten the game! ============================= And there were none... ============================= You're number one! Now that you're the baddest of the bad, what will you do? Don't worry. The game's got you covered (Credits goes to Wizard_of_Odd for choice translation) 1. Free Roam Santa Destroy 2. Fake Ending 3. Real Ending Obviously there are spoilers...but then again you're reading a FAQ. Still, I'll be nice and put this spoiler alert. SPOILER STARTS HERE Choice #1 puts you back in control of Travis, you're allowed to run around town to tie up any loose ends you got going. Returning to the bathroom will prompt you to pick a choice. Choice #2 shows you pondering what's in the future, only to be interrupted by a familar assailant! Cliffhanger! Credits play and you have to save (choose a free slot if you want to choose the other options) and you can start the 2nd playthrough. Choice #3 is an extended version of choice 2, except you see that the "familiar assailant" gets taken out by Henry (Man, this guy loves meddling...). You two proceed to go to the parking lot...and then IT'S ON! ============================= Name: Henry ============================= I. Boss Techniques & Strategy: Energy Henry fires 4 energy orbs at you. Orbs Double Star Wars have taught me, you can't hold energy swords without Twirl someone doing a twirling horizontal slash. Henry keeps this Slash cliche alive with a pair of them! 8-hit This is more or less Henry's bread & butter. 6 standing slashes, Combo 1 downward stab, finishing with an unblockable somersault slash. The first 7 hits you can block, but roll out of the way of the 8th. It has slight homing quality. Counter Henry will put the katana in front of him, with the tip pointing towards the floor. If you hit him he'll retaliate with an unblockable slash. Charging This is unblockable, Henry charges at you, and then finishes Slash the move with a vertical slash. Death Henry does into a sheathed stance, says "Nighty Night" and charges Move at you. It's unblockable and if it connects. get ready to restart the fight, cause your current match is over. Henry runs you through, launches you into the air, then knocking you further into the air, then he throws you back down to earth, finishing off downward stab (to add some "OMPH!" to the stab, he's stomps on the sword). You've been waiting for this since Henry ruined your match with Letz Shake. Henry's a pretty speedy and aggressive fighter. If you're close to him, he has a tendency to rely on the 8-hit combo. Block the first 7 hits and roll out on the 8th. He's open when he finishes it. You can use the time Henry gives you when he does his counter to charge your beam katana. The Death Move must be avoided at all costs, use the audio cue he gives you (Nighty, Night!) to give yourself some room and to prepare to roll out of the way. Like all the bosses in the game, wait for him to whiff his moves then strike. Once you finish him off, enjoy the "real ending"! You've earned it.
