Beat the game and save. Choose to start a new game and a "Shinnosuke Normal/Special"
option will be available. The special version will show Shinnosuke in a Panda
costume with a baby panda in a front pocket clapping his hands. The Panda suit
will be shown in most short clips but not all FMV sequences.
Unlock Panda Costume (Samonosuke):
Beat the game with any final rating and collect at least 10 pieces of Fluorite.
Unlock Oni-Spirits Mini-Game:
Beat the game with any final rating and collect at least 20 pieces of Fluorite.
Unlock Dragon Costume (Kaede):
Beat the game with an S rating.
Unlock Ultimate Mode:
Beat the Oni-Spirits Mini-Game. This will let you start a new game with the
Bishamon Sword, 99 Soul Absorbers, Infinite Arrows, and Infinite Bullets. Your
magic meter will always stay full, as well.
The 'Easy-Mode' will be unlocked after you beat the game 4 times and the note
'Easy Mode' is now available at the bottom screen. Or! If you continuously die
in the game, I guess the game feels sorry for you and gives you the Easy Mode...
It took me about 7 deaths to unlock it... we ... weren't really counting.
How to Light the Fluorites:
To get the Fluorites to light up, you must first have the Vision Staff that
can be found in the treasure box near the big statue. After you get this item,
the Fluorites will light up. This will help you in finding it.
Find the Flourites:
There are 20 special rocks called Flourites stashed throughout the game. Finding
them all is difficult, but will reap great rewards for you. If you finish the
game with all 20 Flourites, a mini-game called "Oni Spirits" will be unlocked.
The Vision Staff, which can be found near the Bishamon shrine in the West Area,
is very helpful in locating Flourites. As soon as you possess it, the rare items
will shine, making them much easier to spot. However, you'll have to find the
first nine on your own. Below, you'll find a list of every single Flourite in
1. In one of the small alcoves with brown doors near the Seiryu in the Under
2. Just after the boss fight in the South area, break a couple of urns and search
the floor under them to find the Flourite.
3. In the Keep, after running into Kaede with Yumemaru, you'll find the Flourite
in a little cupboard over the treasure box near the stairs.
4. On the upstairs level of the Keep, through the room just past the red magic
door on the catwalk. Step through the next room and find the Flourite under
the stairs near the treasure box containing the Arrows.
5. In the upper reaches of the Keep, you will find a Flourite across from Volume
two of the Seiryu right after the cut scene where Tokichiru takes off into the
6. In the Keep Underground, head down the second hall of glass-encased red samurai.
In the left corner (near the last samurai), you'll discover the Flourite.
7. In the Keep Underground, find a Flourite inside the iron maiden in the same
room where you get the Blue Key.
In the West Area, when playing as Kaede, find the secret room (use the Gear
to enter). In front of the Buddha statue here is a Flourite.
9. While playing as Kaede in the West Area, you will step into a burning room
just past the gate that required the Gold and Silver Plates. Through the door
left of this entrance is a narrow staircase. Next to the staircase in a heap
of barrels, you'll find the Flourite.
10. In the West area, you'll find a Flourite just outside the door after obtaining
the Vision Staff with Samanosuke.
11. In the West area, find a Flourite on the hill with the sled just outside
12. In the West Area, you'll find a Flourite blinking in the path on your way
to the room with the statue (where you got the Matchlock).
13. In the East Area (with Samanosuke), atop the roof there is a bell. In the
walkway around the bell is a Flourite.
14. While playing as Samanosuke, collect the Flourite on the pier just past
the Magic Mirror room in the East Area.
15. In the East Area, just when you begin playing as Kaede, you will enter a
shrine just past the locked door you pick. A Flourite is on the floor just to
the right of the door.
16. While playing as Kaede in the East Area, climb a ladder in the bridge house
Magic Mirror room. Destroy the crates here to find another Flourite.
17. In the East Area, while playing as Kaede, you can find another Flourite
atop a chest in the room where you get the final book of the Suzaku.
18. Sixth level of the Dark Realm
19. Eleventh level of the Dark Realm
20. Seventeenth level of the Dark Realm
How to Beat the Last Boss:
Before the last boss after you use your long bow and fancy arrow and you blow
that little flute you get a fancy sword that helps you beat the last boss DON'T
USE IT UNLESS YOU WANNA DIE REALLY FAST!!!! Instead, max out your other three
swords and use your thunder magic, fire magic and wind magic Then the fancy
sword. If you just use the fancy sword, the boss will pick you up and cook you
(he'll even kill you if you use invincibility cheats) Enjoy the finale and the
Onimusha 2 FMV Sequence:
Beat the game and save. Choose to start a new game and a "Special Report" option
will be available. You can view a small FMV sequence of the game's sequel that
will be coming out.
Get More Souls:
Find an area that has some demons and Gyran (the floating soul stealers) Instead
of killing the Gyran right away to prevent them from taking your Precious souls,
kill the monsters first and let the Gyran take the souls, and after the monsters
are gone, kill they gyran, there should be twice as many souls or more, this
is really effective if there are more then one Gyran. Just make sure you have
your Bow, Matchlock, or wind spell ready in case it tries to escape with all
Easy Way to Kill Hecuba:
Instead of wasting your time using the wind sword to get her down, just use
this handy technique I found while playing. Collect as many bullets as you can.
Upgrade all of your bullets to burst bullets before the match with hecuba. When
the battle begins take out your sword and kill the first three hecubites. Then
pull out your gun and shoot her until you run out of bullets. She wont attack
because she becomes dazed after each shot. If you miss, quickly take out your
sword and block it. Burst bullets should take care of the Hecubites. If not
switch aiming to them. Using this technique should end the battle quickly.
Don't Leave the Goods:
After completing the Dark Realm mini game, go back into it and you can re-collect
the herbs and medicines and talismans and this will work about four or five
times and then you won't be able to do it again.
Easy Monster Kills:
If you are getting over run by baddies or you are in need of some souls simply
kick the monster into a corner/wall and stab him through the heart. You should
get at least double the souls you would have gotten.
