"One has fallen, without realizing the final hope. One has fallen clinging to
his fate. One has fallen leaving the fate of the future to his companions.
History is riddled with the waves of destruction and rebirth. These waves roll
onward far into the future. Much has been destroyed. Many have perished."

And so a new chapter opens in the Onimusha series! Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams
takes place several years after Nobunaga's demise at the hands of Samanosuke
Akechi. Nobunaga's retainer, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, is now gathering cherry trees
that he is blossoming from around the land for some unknown purpose with the
help of Mitsunari Ishida. Soki, known as the "Oni of the Ash" and also the
"Black Oni", travels throughout Japan to stop Hideyoshi and burn his cherry
trees every time that he comes across one, but why? What significance do these
strange cherry trees hold? While on his journey, Soki will meet with allies
who share a struggle of their own that will ultimately involve him. Soki will
learn, through his companions, that he has the ability to control a most
terrifying power that will help him and his friends greatly in their journey,
but will his immediate struggles stand in the way of that which could help him
achieve victory? The saga of the Black Oni now begins.

This guide will give you a full walkthrough for the main game, revealing every
item, puzzle box solution, along with boss strategies. Check the Basics
section for a full list of all the characters moves, special attacks, and Oni
Awakening powers. In the List section I have layed out all the weapons and
items found in the game and be sure to check out the Enemies section for every
enemy along with their respective attacks and item drops.

As in my other walkthroughs, I have stayed away from anything dealing with the
plot, but if you consider boss names a spoiler, then tread carefully. Please
enjoy this FAQ and give me an email if you have any questions, comments, or if
you find anything that I missed. Any comments, suggestions, questions, etc.
are always welcome. Email me at berserker_kev@yahoo.com. Also, if you find
any errors in this FAQ (I don't care how little of an error), then please email
me about it.

Update and Thanks: I would like to thank all the readers that emailed me thus
far. I have received over 300 emails so far from the Onimusha community and
have enjoyed hearing the thoughts of Onimusha diehards! Thanks to everyone
that emailed me and to those that offered their help. This is definitely a FAQ
to remember for me!

The only downside is that the final swing leaves Soki open to attack.

The most well rounded of Soki's weapon varieties. The swings cover a large
area in front of Soki and have good range per swing.

-- 3-hit combo ([], [], [])

The most powerful of Soki's weapon varieties, which yields great damage upon
his enemies at the cost of a hefty recovery time between swings. The last hit

draw out souls and he will automatically absorb the souls.

major recovery after each shot. She cannot fire and run with this weapon.

==========
= Skills =
==========

Each time a level is gained one point will be added to allow you to upgrade
your skills for that specific character. Each Exclusive Move is unlocked by
upgrading the skill above it to Level 3. Once the move appears, it must be
activated by using a point in order to use it. Any attack with 10 slots will
only have the first 5 slots available, 5 slots will only have 3 slots
available, 3 slots will only have 2 slots available until after Stage 8.

Here's a look at the way the skill menu will look after Stage 8:

=============
= Oni Magic =
=============

Press /\ to unleash an Oni Magic attack. Different weapons will have different
elemental magic attacks. The different elements are Fire, Ice, Light, Dark,
Wind, and Earth. Some weapons do not have an element and will not allow you to
use Oni Magic.

-- High Level Magic Attacks

Press and hold /\ to switch to a higher level of magic. The longer you hold
the button down, the more powerful the Oni Magic attack will be and the more MP
it will consume. You must power up each weapon to a certain level in order to
unleash the higher level magic attacks.

-- Co-op Magic Attack

When you have charged up to a level 3 magic attack, if you have a partner with
you, an icon will appear in the upper left hand corner that will tell you to
press L2 for a Co-op attack. Press L2 during this time to unleash a
combination of two level 3 magic attacks based on the current weapon that each
character has. The camera will automatically switch to the partner once the
Co-op attack has been initiated to confirm the attack.

=================
= Oni Awakening =
=================

Press R3+L3 after a certain sequence that takes place after Stage 8 to perform
an Oni Awakening once you have collected enough Purple Souls to charge your
Overdrive Meter. While the Oni Awakening is initiated, each character will
have access to a new variety of moves and abilities, their life will gradually
recover, they will take more damage off enemies than usual, and they will be
invincible. If a controlled character dies while the Overdrive Meter is
charged up enough for an Oni Awakening then the character will automatically
perform the Oni Awakening and will be revived. If a partner dies, their Oni
Awakening will not activate.

* If you have a Charon's Bell equipped, the Charon's Bell will bring you back
to life and the Oni Awakening will not be initiated upon your death.

=====================================
= Special Attack (Secret Technique) =
=====================================

After the same sequence of events that enact the Oni Awakening has taken place,
each character will also have access to a Special set of Attacks by using the
R2 button. Special Attacks can be done by pressing either R1, Forward + R2, or
Back + R2.

===========================
= Critical Attack (Issen) =
===========================

For Dawn of Dreams, a critical attack can be done in four ways:

-- Counter (Attack before an enemy attack ([]))

This is the true critical attack of the game and will reward you with the most
souls and damage out of all the critical attacks. The timing for the counter
will vary depending on the enemy. Sometimes you have to attack right before
the enemy attack connects, and sometimes you have to attack a bit early. This
type of critical attack is also known as a True Issen.

-- Kick out of Guard (Kick (O) the enemy while he is guarding then attack ([]))

The Kick will break the enemy's guard, allowing you to perform a critical
attack while they stagger.

-- Deflect (Attack right after deflecting an attack)

While the enemy is staggering from the deflect (L1 right before an attack)
press the attack button to perform a critical.

-- Oni Magic (Use Oni Magic (/\) then attack ([]) while the enemy staggers)

The Oni Magic will stun the enemy and allow you to perform a critical attack.
Please note that the enemy must survive the Oni Magic hit in order to hit them
with a critical attack. This cannot be done with ice elemental magic.

==================
= Critical Chain =
==================

From any type of critical attack, you can perform a critical chain that will
allow you to slice through multiple enemies, depending on your chain level
under the skill menu. Tap [] multiple times after performing a critical attack
to chain the critical.

===========
= Rapport =
===========

This is the friendliness between Soki and his current partner. Look under the
"Next LV" display under the current partner's stats in the pause menu to view
that partner's current Rapport level. A higher Rapport will lead to the
combining of more items, friendlier responses, and more available questions
during hideout areas for each of your partners. Having a partner fight
alongside Soki will raise that partner's Rapport.

For the walkthrough, I have listed each stage with a backtrack section that
will help you whenever you decide to go back to that specific area. It is best
to backtrack to the stages when you have all of your characters together.
Ohatsu will not be available for backtracking to earlier stages until after
Stage 8. While viewing the puzzle solutions, please note the asterisks (*'s)
are the correct stones that you should turn in that grid.

Plenty of Genma soldiers will ambush you in this first area. Use this chance
to get used to the controls of the main character. Hold R1 to lock-on to an
enemy and press [] to attack. Right now you can only do a basic four hit combo
with your sword and you have two additional attacks that every weapon will
share: Thrust (Forward + []) and Uppercut (Back + []). Press X to absorb souls
after defeating each enemy. Unlike previous Onimusha's, the O button is now
for kicking. Notice that the camera will only show a behind view of your
character, tap the right analog down to zoom out and tap it upwards to zoom in.

It's best to fight off as many Genma soldiers as you can to get your soul count
up. They will eventually stop coming from the purple meteors. Break the pot
down the alley to your right at the first turn for a MEDICINE LV.1. Continue
down the main path for a cutscene.

After the cutscene fight off the Genma soldiers on the rooftop until the Genma
Giant destroys the building you're currently on. Soki will jump to the next
building so continue your fight there. Eventually the Genma Giant will destroy
the second building and Soki will be forced to leap atop another building.
Three Genma Soldier elites will ambush you on the third building. They are
slightly more aggressive and have more life, but fall prey to your normal sword
combo pretty well. Fight them off until the Genma giant interrupts the battle
in your favor.

Boss - Genma Giant

At the beginning of the battle Soki will transform into his Onimusha state.
The Genma Giant will start the battle by burying his sword into the building
you're currently on - this is the only time you can hit him for the moment. Do
normal combos or use the /\ button to do a new uppercut attack (Oni form only)
to take off a good chunk of his life per swing. There's no need to worry about
absorbing souls at the moment since the Oni form will automatically absorb
souls for you. He will eventually lift his sword out of the building and Genma
soldiers will attack. Fight off the Genma soldiers until you see the Giant
Genma lean his sword back to attack. Block when you see him do this to avoid
taking damage from his swing. When he leans back and starts to fire his chest
guns, you can avoid the gunfire by blocking. He will eventually sink his sword
back into the building allowing you to hit him some more. That same sword
slice can hit you so be sure to keep your distance or block.

Eventually you will knock away his sword. He will launch purple meteors at you
in between attack during this phase. Step to the side to avoid them. When he
slams his fist into the building, run up and hit him just like before. He will
still have the same horizontal swing as well, only this time without the sword.
When he ducks out of site, run to the side to avoid taking damage from his
double fist crush - you can't block it. This will also give you another chance
to attack him.

******************************** Suruga Outpost *******************************

Boss - Danemon

This battle is easy since all of the boss' attacks are blockable and slow.
Many of his attacks will break your guard after blocking them however so make
sure not to get surrounded by him and his minions. Genma Soldiers will try to
crowd around as you fight the main boss but they are not too much of a bother
because of their limited attacks. Focus on the boss since he will be
constantly attacking you. The main attack you need to watch out for is his
overhead flame attack since it will take off quite a bit of life. Watch for
him to charge this attack then get ready to block. Attack him in between his
attacks with a magic attack or normal combo. A magic attack will stun him for
a bit.

If you want to make this fight really quick, wait for him to strike, then press
[] the moment before his attack connects to counter him and take off half of
his life. It only takes two to kill him and he is very easy to counter with
his slow attacks. After you take his life all the way down be on the lookout
for his final sword swing that he will do if you are still next to him - just
block it if you're close.

HIDEOUT 1

When the battle is over you will enter the Hideout. Take this chance to power
up your items with souls and power up your skills with the points you have
gained from leveling up. Do all of your leveling up, saving and shopping at
the Enchanted Mirror to the side. I would suggest powering up your attack
first under the skills menu. When powering up your items (Sword and Armor),
remember that powering up your armor will give you a greater defense (enemies
won't take off as much) and powering up your sword will give you a greater rate
of damage per sword swing and will give you extra bonuses when a certain level
is reached per weapon.

******************************* Plains Highway ********************************

= Wrecked Road =

Pick up the GRASS in the back of all the wreckage and break the pots near
Minokichi to find a MEDICINE LV1. There's nothing useful up the ladder at the
moment (you'll have to backtrack for the item there) so enter the door next to
Minokichi.

= Monster Show =

Three Genma soldiers will teleport into the room and attack. Enter the door
next to the Enchanted Mirror after the battle.

= Wrecked Road (left) =

DRUNKARD'S DIARY 1 will be on the ground to the character's right as you exit
the building. Continue ahead to where Minokichi appears and grab the ONI MED
LV1 from the wooden plate at the stand. Enter the door next to Minokichi.

= Behind the Buildings =

Soldier Genma will continually teleport into this area. Break the pots near
Minokichi to find a MEDICINE LV1 and FANGS. Walk down the steps and grab the
MEDICINE LV2 on the left, DRUNKARD'S DIARY 3 between the two boxes in the
middle, and you will find a treasure chest with a puzzle on it to the right.
For these puzzle boxes you can either solve the puzzle or break the chest and
appraise the item later for a fee. If you break it, the item will remain "???"
until you appraise it at a shop.

The chest contains Soki's FIRE DANCE sword. Looking at the three ladders,
climb up the ladder on the far left and run across the rooftop to find a
FOOTSOLDIER'S CHOKER in the chest on the front rooftop. Climb back down and go
through the door behind Minokichi.

= Wrecked Road (further left) =

Two Genma Archers will teleport into the area. Make sure to stay blocking
until they fire an arrow then attack them as they reload. Genma Archers are
very weak so always make sure to defeat them first when they are in a crowd.
Look near the wreckage to the left to find an ONI MED LV1 on the ground. Enter
the door near Minokichi when you're ready.

= Back Road =

Defeat the archers off to the left first then fight off the Genma Soldiers.
Grab the PLAINS OUTPOST MAP off the ground. Check the hole near the map for a
cutscene that will lead into a boss fight.

Boss - Jubei

All of Jubei's moves are blockable, but she will constantly pressure you with
weapon strikes and combos that will break your guard. She will usually retreat
shortly after breaking your guard. The moment she retreats will be your best
time to hit her as she prepares for another wave of attacks. Use you Oni Magic
(/\ then tap toward her and []) to quickly put an end to her (2 hits). Make
sure to keep her targeted so you'll know where she is. Don't worry about her
hits if you're guarding when she moves around you and attacks since you will
guard her attacks no matter which way you are facing. As long as you stand and
guard she cannot hit you at all. Be on the lookout for her kick, which she
will randomly do following a combo. If she keeps trying to kick you, dash
backward and attack her during her kick. As long as you don't dash into her,
you will avoid damage by blocking. Only move toward her while attacking or
walking.

******************************** Plains Town **********************************

= Back Road =

Directly after the battle, Genma soldiers will appear and attack you and Jubei.
Fight them off and hurry ahead. A cutscene will play which will show a purple
meteor raining down from the temple up ahead. The meteors that rain down
afterward will spawn Genma every time they hit the ground. The game will
explain the partner controls after the cutscene. Always remember that "Wait
and Recover" will cause your ally to regain health up to half of their health
bar - this will be extremely useful in later stages. If a partner dies then
the game is not over. Your partner will revive with a small bit of health
eventually after dieing. You cannot switch to control Jubei at the moment.
Hurry down the road ahead to find an Enchanted Mirror. Run toward the gate up
ahead to start a cutscene that will take you to the next area.

= Under the Bridge =

Soldier Genma will ambush you and Jubei at the bottom of the bridge. The Genma
will continually teleport into the area so be careful when you go to absorb
souls. Follow the river to the back and a cutscene will introduce you to the
Spear Genma. Be sure to block when the Spear Genma dash toward you to guard
their spear then attack them when they stop. This type of Genma can be very
annoying in a group with other enemies since you will constantly have to watch
for their dashes. There's a puzzle box off to the right side with a TIGER EYE
inside.

An Axeman Genma will appear and initiate the beginning of TEST OF VALOR #1.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Plains Town - Front Road

Destroy the target within the time limit!
Target: Axeman
Time Left: 1:00

Set your ally on "All-out Attack", equip your most powerful weapon, and try as
much as you can to knock the Axeman down (use Oni Magic) then stab him with a
finisher while he is on the ground. Be sure to block his attack if he starts
to lean his axe back.

Gold: Secret Med LV2
Silver: Medicine Lv1
Bronze: Grass

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

There is an Enchanted Mirror hidden behind the building next to the bridge (not
a savable one). Climb up the ladder next to the gate and grab the MUSHROOMS on
the other side of the roof then climb down the next ladder.

= Back Road =

An Enchanted Mirror will be across from the ladder you just got off of. Check
the gate to see where to go next. Climb up the ladder next to the second gate.
Directly after climbing it, your partner's path will be cut off due to a Genam
meteor. Run to the other side of the rooftop and unfold the ladder by
examining it. Climb down to find an Axeman and Acher Genma. Rush toward the
bridge and defeat the Archer first then deal with the Axeman. Be sure to block
his axe swing if you see him preparing to attack. Unbar the door to find Jubei
on the other side with three Axemen. TEST OF VALOR #2 will now start.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Plains Town - Back Road

Eradicate the Genma within the time limit!
Time Left: 1:00

Just like the last Test of Valor, put your partner on "All-out Attack" and
slash away or use Oni Magic with your most powerful weapon. Take out the
Archer first with normal slashes, then use a chained Oni Magic attack to knock
down all three Axemen at once.

Gold: Oni Jewel
Silver: Medicine LV1
Bronze: Grass

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now that you have reunited with Jubei, take her back through the gate with you.
Grab the POWER JEWEL from the bridge and climb down the ladder to the side of
the building (not the bridge yet). At the bottom you will face the usual Genma
soldiers along with a new Door Guardian Genma. The Door Guardians can be a
major pain if you do not block their laser attacks. Stand next to the Door
Guardian and hit it sparingly with combos. The moment it starts its laser
attack, be sure to hold the guard button or you will suffer quite a bit of
damage. On higher levels these enemies can kill you if they manage to catch
you one time because of the multiple-hitting laser. After the Genma is gone,
the door will be ready to open.

Drain the Red Soul Altar of its red souls and solve the puzzle box to find a
DOJIGIRI blade.

Leave the room and go down the ladder connected to the bridge. Fight off the
next Door Guardian Genma just like the first.

= Old Temple =

The door to the left side requires a key to open. Run across the bridge and
defeat the Archers first. The Genma soldiers will constantly respawn from the
purple meteors so run across the bridge until you stumble into a new enemy that
will activate TEST OF VALOR #3

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #3 - Plains Town - Old Temple

Destroy the target within the time limit!
Target: Gacha
Time Left: 3:00

As long as you use your Oni Magic on the Gacha and concentrate solely on him
then you will get a good ranking. Be sure to set your partner to "All-out
Attack"

Gold: Kogarasu
Silver: Secret Med LV1
Bronze: Mushrooms

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Always make sure to concentrate on the Gacha first when they appear with other
enemies. All of their attacks can be blocked, but they get really aggressive
and have great distance with each attack. Enter the area where the Gacha came
from to find a SWEET HERB and an Enchanted Mirror to the side. Walk down the
forest path across from the area with the save point. Collect the TAKEZO
CONFESSION file from the ground and continue up the path.

= Back Road Entrance =

Break the middle pot off to the side to find an ONI MED LV1 and the other two
pots inside the building to find an ONI JEWEL. A Gacha will teleport into the
area eventually. Climb the ladder next to the gate and run across the rooftop
to find the --ANCIENT KEY-- at the end of the roof. Go all the way back to the
temple and use the key on the locked door.

= Block Room =

Ignore the Gacha for now - get rid of the archers on the other side of the
bridge first then go after the Gacha. There is an Enchanted Mirror across the
bridge (nonsave). The chest contains --TEMPLE GATE KEY R.--. Go back to the
old temple and enter the door next to the forest path.

= Old Temple =

Be sure to save before entering the door. Grab the LANTERN TRICK file and the
MEDICINE LV1 from off the ground. In order to get the second gate key you will
need to light up each torch by striking each of them three times with your
weapon (doesn't matter which weapon). Once all the torches are lit, the left
middle torch will slide away to reveal --TEMPLE GATE KEY L.--. Place both of
the gate keys on the sealed blue door to trigger a cutscene.

Boss - Crab Walker

This boss looks frightening, but he is really no problem if you look out for
his attacks. This will be your longest battle yet since he has some really
good armor. Stay right next to him no matter where he jumps - preferably
behind him so he cannot hit you with his front leg. If you are far away, he
will try to shoot a purple meteor at you. The purple meteors will spawn Genma
soldiers throughout the entire battle. Stay close to him and attack him
constantly but make to watch for his front leg swipe. When he raises his left
leg back be sure to block and you will not take any damage from his swing.
When he jumps straight up, be sure to block as he falls to the ground. He will
constantly leap around the area, but if you keep up with him you should be able
to take him down easily. When he jumps above the middle door you will just
have to wait for him to land. Set Jubei to "All-out Attack" while he is on the
ground and she will help you take quite a bit of damage. The boss will most
likely kill her, but she will revive shortly. The main thing to remember about
this battle is to not get too deeply involved in a combo since he will most
likely strike you with his front leg if you do. It's best to avoid performing
the final hit of a combo because of the delay. If you can time it just right
you can do a magic attack right as he attacks with his front leg and avoid
damage to yourself while damaging him. Fight some Genma Soldiers if your life
gets too low and one of them will eventually cough up some yellow souls for
you.

HIDEOUT 2

You now have to option to revisit any of the previous stages you have been to
by talking to Minokichi. Choose "Hideout" from any Enchanted Mirror in that
area to return to the Hideout. Refer to the backtrack section of each area to
find some of the items you may have missed. You can use the backtrack option
to level up your character for now as well. There will be a better option for
leveling up later though. Some new items are available in the shop. Talk to
Jubei and choose "Combine" to mix some of those seemingly useless items that
you have collected into some worthwile items. Make sure that you power up
Jubei a little as well as Soki. You will need to power up each of your allies
throughout the game since you will eventually be in control of them without the
help of Soki. Talk to both of the characters to get some extra info about
them. Always be sure to talk to them for some interesting dialogue at times.
Exit the Hideout when you're ready to depart for the next stage.

************************** Plains Highway (Backtrack) *************************

= Back Road =

Switch to Jubei and crawl under the hole to the side of the door across from
where you start.

= Behind the Buildings =

Travel to the right (Jubei's left) and climb the ladder to get on the roof.
Rush all the way across the rooftops until you reach another ladder then climb
down. Head to the right and unlock the door so Soki can get through. While
back in control of Soki, head to the Enchanted Mirror to the left and change
your partner to Roberto. Change to Roberto and go down the steps, then push
each of the blocks over to the indented area of the ground beside each block.
All three blocks will lock into place once you move them into the indented
area. You now have access to the rest of the area above thanks to the blocks.
Switch your partner back to Jubei. Use the blocks to cross over to the door at
the far right end. Don't climb up the ladder just yet.

= Destroyed Bridge =

Move to the left side of the bridge - there's a path to the side of the railing
next to the building. Go down the steps and walk across the drained river to
find a treasure chest containing INVENTION NOTES near an Enchanted Mirror. Go
back behind the building and climb up the ladder next to the door you come
through.

= Rooftops =

At the top, move around the side of the roof and have Jubei move along the
narrow board to reach the puzzle box on the other side. Open it to find

****************************** Fortress at Suruga *****************************

= Mountain Road =

Now we're in control of Jubei. Run up the path ahead until a cutscene plays
and Ninja Genma attack you. These enemies love to slip in attacks when you
least expect it so make sure to keep an eye on the other Ninja Genma while
attacking one. If one of them jumps toward you then get ready to block. Run
across the bridge ahead to find some more Genma (Archer and Soldier) on the
other side along with a PAWN RING in a chest next to them. The door across
from them is locked and you won't find the key until much later in the game.
Continue down the path to find a MOUNTAIN FORTRESS MAP lying on the ground.
Run up the stairs and fight off the Ninja Genma that appear. The door to the
side needs a combination to open, but you need to backtrack to this stage to
get it. If you want to know it now then visit the backtrack section for this
stage.

Walk up to the board at the side of the cliff and examine it twice to walk
across it. Jubei's unique aspects allow her to cross narrow spaces or crawl in
areas that Soki could normally not get through. On the other side save at the
Enchanted Mirror and run down the right path to find a MEDICINE LV2 at the end.
Ignore the dead body for now (you will need to backtrack later with a certain
character). A Genma Axeman will appear in the path behind you. Defeat him and
run back to the Mirror and take the left path. On the bridge a Genma Axeman
will appear on each end to block you off. Fight through the Genma Axemen and
enter the path to your left on the other side of the bridge.

= Cliffside =

Run to the character's left and step across the fallen tree that leads to the
fortress wall. Run down the ramp.

= Inside the Wall =

Grab the FANGS and SENTRY'S DIARY 2 to the side and hurry down the path ahead.
A cutscene will play and Spider Genma will ambush you. Like the Ninja Genma,
Spider Genma love to sneak in attacks when you least expect them as well. Make
sure to block if you see a Spider Genma jump into the air and hang from a web.
The Spider Genma will jump toward you and slash at you after suspending
himself. They will usually remain suspended in their web until you come close
enough for them to lunge at you. Try to lure them away from the middle path
and fight them at the entrance you just came from since there is an archer in
the background. After disposing of them, run down the path (past the Axeman)
and defeat the Archer Genma. Grab the ONI MED LV1 off the crate to the side
and save your game at the Enchanted Mirror after defeating the enemies. Climb
the ladder to trigger a cutscene.

= Front of Warehouse =

Now you can actually switch between both of the characters at will. Press the
L2 button to switch between them. Always remember that if the controlled
character dies then you die. TEST OF VALOR #1 will start immediately after the
reunion of Soki and Jubei.

If you use Magic Attacks here and stay aggressive you will gain an easy gold.
Don't worry about the souls! While controlling Soki, use your Oni Magic with
Fire Dance to slice through a whole group of Genma at once then attack them
while they lay on the ground to finish them off.

Gold: Black Sword
Silver: Secret Med LV1

After the fight, check the chest near the wagon to find an ACOLYTE'S RING. To
the right of the Enchanted Mirror, collect the SENTRY'S DIARY 1. Save your
game and enter the path in the middle of the road.

= Side of the Warehouse =

Many Genma will spawn in this area as you run down the path ahead. Ignore the
ladder for now and run down the path ahead. Various Genma will teleport into
the area along the way. Grab the POWER JEWEL from the barrels about midways
down the path. Run all the way to the end path and use Jubei to crawl under
the hole in the gate at the end.

= Back of the Warehouse =

Carefully fight off the Genma and climb the ladder on the left. Walk across
the wall and grab the --CASTLE GATE KEY-- from the other end of the framework.
When you climb back down the ladder some Ninja Genma will attack. Crawl back
through the side of the gate.

There is nothing else to do here for the moment so go back to the area where
you came from.

= Side of Warehouse =

Climb the first ladder near the front of this area and make sure to have Jubei
follow you if you are not controlling her already. Near the ramp of the
framework you will find a FRAMEWORK MEMO. Continue up the ramp until you reach
a section of boards that blocks the way. Sadly the proud Black Oni cannot cut
through wood so you must have Jubei crawl under the wood for him. With Jubei,
climb up the ladder on the other side after crawling through the space then
pull the lever to move the structure to the side away from the ladder. Examine
the folding ladder to let it fold downward and Soki will be able to climb up.
Run down the side of the framework ahead to find a puzzle box. Many Genma
Soldiers will teleport onto the framework along the way.

Soki's GLACIER SONG sword will be inside of the puzzle box. Have one of your
characters wait by the first switch then climb up the next ladder with your
other character. The second switch on the left needs some oiling, so you can't
use the switch yet. Switch to your other character and pull the switch below
then switch back to the top character. Lower the ladder at the other end so
your bottom character can join you. Run down the path until you get to the
switch at the end. Have a character wait by the switch then backtrack to the
ladder that you passed and climb down it. Fight off the Genma and run toward
the structure that is blocking your way. Have the top character pull the lever
then grab the --LUBRICATING OIL-- with the bottom character. Go back to the
lever that needs oiling and use the oil on it. Pull the lever and grab the
CROW FEATHER from the floor of the framework. Talk to Jubei to learn a little
about the crow feather. Before you leave this area, I would recommend that you
go back and pull the lever on the first switch so that the wall is on the top.
This will make your backtracking a bit easier when you come back later. Climb
up the ladder to the side.

= Roof of Warehouse =

Here you will be introduced to the Genma Crows. Use Soki's uppercut attack
(Back + []) while locked on to one of them to easily knock them out of the sky
when they fly low. Further ahead an Archer and some Ninja Genma will attack.
When you make it to the tree trunk walk over the tree trunk to the other side
of the roof to find a SECRET MED LV1. Walk across the tree trunk to the other
building and run across the side of the roof to the ladder. A cutscene will
play.

= Inside Warehouse =

Save your game at the Enchanted Mirror to the left and climb down the ladder
for a cutscene.

Boss - Ohatsu

The only aspect that really makes this battle annoying are the Genma trees.
Ohatsu will always stand right next to a Genma tree while attacking you. If
you try to hit her while she stands next to one, your blade will most likely
bounce off of a Genma tree allowing her to attack you. Stand back and block
her gunfire then rush toward her as she reloads. Lock on to her and kick her
when you get close to knock her away from the Genma trees then attack her with
a combo or Oni Magic. She will use her grappling hook to move to another side
of the warehouse eventually. You will have to scope her out and perform the
same method of attack once again. Every now and then she will sneak in her big
burst attack which is unblockable but it is close range - be on the lookout for
her to duck and charge her gun then quickly get away. You can use the trees as
cover to avoid her shots also instead of blocking.

= Roof of Warehouse =

Notice the Shadow of Rome music playing in the background? Ah yes, what a fine
game that was - such sweet memories...what, you never played Shadow of Rome!?
Go play it. NOW!

Anyway, climb the ladder to get back on the rooftop. An Axeman and Archer
Genma will appear near the tree. Defeat them (archer first) and run across the
tree. Run along the roof toward the ladder and some Ninja Genma will attack.
Defeat them with Oni Magic since they can be quite deadly when there are more
than two then climb down the ladder.

= Side of Warehouse =

Move across the framework and climb down the second ladder. Climb down the
next ladder closest to you for a cutscene.

HIDEOUT 3

Now we're back at the hideout once again. Be sure to level up your skills and
items before departing. There are also some extra items in the shop.

************************ Fortress at Suruga (Backtrack) ***********************

= Front of Warehouse =

You'll start in the same area that Soki started after Jubei's little quest from
last time. Go ahead and choose Jubei from the start since you'll need her
first. Enter the path to the right as you run to the back.

= Side of the Warehouse =

Climb the first ladder and rush all the way to the next ladder on the
framework. You will need to crawl under the wood and raise the wooden platform
with Jubei so Soki can get through. After raising the platform, go back down
the ladder and run to the very end and go up the ramp to the Enchanted Mirror.
Choose Ohatsu as your partner and run all the way back to where you were.
Climb to the very top of the framework on the left side and pull the switch at
the top. Grapple across the gap at the end with Ohatsu and open the chest on
the other side for an ONI JEWEL. If you go up the ladder to the side, you can
engage in Test of Valor #2 on the rooftop.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Rooftop - Fortress at Suruga

Carry out the technique within the time limit!

Technique: Chain Critical X5
Time Left: 3:00

This is one battle where it really helps to have a weak weapon! Equip the
weakest weapon you have (Dragon Offer most likely) and use Oni Magic Critical
Chains on the Genma Soldiers. Try to move to the correct side of them so that
you will slide toward another Genma when you do the first Critical Chain. Only
a Critical Chain of two or more enemies will count toward the goal.

Gold: Naga Ring
Silver: Secret Med LV1
Bronze: Mushrooms

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Go back down the ladder and rush to the far right side of the framework and
grapple over the gap to find a GOLD NUGGET in a chest. Climb all the way back
down and bomb the gate next to the bottom ladder with Ohatsu.

= Inside the Wall =

Turn right and go up the ladder then rush to the end of the top area to find
Tenkai's DRAGONFLY in a chest at the very end. Travel back down the ladder and
go back through the door. Enter the door down the path on the right side
(where the Ninja Genma appear).

= Cliffside =

Move across the bridge with Ohatsu and bomb the rock on the other side. Go
down the path ahead.

= Mountain Road =

Turn to the character's left upon entering and use Ohatsu to swing over the
gap. You'll find the --MOUNTAIN SHRINE KEY-- on the ground and a WARRIOR'S
CODE in the treasure chest. Swing back to the other side and continue down the
path ahead. Approach the Enchanted Mirror across the bridge and switch your
partner to Tenkai. Talk to the dead body down the path beside you and he will
tell you a story, which will help you solve the lock puzzle on the gate ahead.
He will only say it once so be sure to listen. Oh wait, I typed it out for
you:

"One time I faced off against three evil bandits. I cut them all down and left
six pieces behind. You should've seen the look on their leader's face."

** The correct code is 1 - 3 - 6 **

Go back to the Enchanted Mirror and change your partner to Jubei. Use her to
walk across the fallen tree and get to the locked door on the other side.
Enter the code and run down the path ahead for a RARE ANTLER. Travel down the
steps to the character's right and use the Mountain Shrine Key on the door at
the bottom. Walk to the end of the path beyond the door for a RARE SHELL.

**************************** Sawayama Castle Town *****************************

= Fox Gate =

As the stage opens you will be immediately ambushed by Genma Soldiers. Defeat
them and run up ahead. A new Genma will be introduced in a cutscene. Like the
other Onimusha's, these Soul Absorber Genma will steal all the souls in the
area for themselves. Bring them down close to you by using your soul absorber
on your Oni gauntlet then attack them. Spear Genma will charge down the path
at you after the Soul Absorber cutscene. Block as they dash by, then knock
them down or just let them run by. Run to the very back and get rid of the
Archer Genma then focus on the rest of the enemies. Grab the S. CASTLE GROUNDS
MAP from off the ground next to the second blue sealed door. Walk toward the
door at the other end (Exit) near the Enchanted Mirror and grab the --RED PEARL
V-- from the fox statue's mouth. This pearl will cause all the red seals to be
removed from the surrounding doors. In order to open the exit door, you will
need to go through the surrounding doors and find six pearls that can be
obtained from the statues inside. The only catch is that you have to collect
them in a specific order. Keep in mind that the same group of enemies that you
just fought will always respawn in the Fox Gate area every time you reenter.
Below is a diagram of all the doors to make this a bit easier to explain.

Enter door 2R to start things off. A word of warning: Make sure to set your
partner to "Wait and Recover" unless you want your partner to trigger some
tough fights behind each door.

= 2R Room =

Two metal statues (actually Armored Genma) will be inside with spiked maces in
their hands. These enemies will be in every room. Usually, they will not
attack you unless you hit one of them. They are heavily armored so you will
have to stop your combos to block their attacks while hitting them. Once you
have stripped them of their armor you'll be able to knock them down. When all
there life is gone, MAKE SURE to get away from them since they will die in a
quite damaging explosion. Grab the MEDICINE LV2 from the lantern off to the
right. Open the doors to your left.

= V Room =

Grab the PAIR SCARF from the chest between the Armored Genma and examine the
fox statue with the pearl in its mouth on the left side. You will gain --BLUE
PEARL II--. Now the red doors will be sealed once again and the blue doors
will be open. Examine the statue on the right to get the --FOX GEM (GHOST)--.
An Axeman and Soldier Genma will attack as you remove the second pearl. Fight
them off (away from the Armored Genma) and enter the door that used to be
sealed.

= 5B Room =

Grab the POWER JEWEL from the wagon and TAKUAN'S DIARY 2 from the ground and
exit the room. Enter door 3B next.

= 3B Room =

One of the Armored Genma will attack as you walk toward the fox statue. It is
best to fight them without your partner's help since your partner will only get
owned with his/her constant attacking without the slightest thought of guarding
unless you give the command for him/her to guard. Your partner does make for
some good bait however. Use Jubei's "Distract Enemy" command to help out a
bit. Examine the fox statue with the pearl to get --RED PEARL VI--. Be sure to
grab --FOX GEM (EARTH)-- from the right statue. Three Spear Genma and Archer
Genma will teleport into the room. As usual, defeat the archer first. Suck
some souls out of the Yellow Soul Altar to the side, but don't drain it. Try
to get just a few at a time so you will have some more left over if you need
extra life later. Solve the puzzle box in the middle to get Jubie's MIKAZUKI.

Defeat both of the Armored Genma in the room before messing with the pearls -
trust me on this! Grab --RED PEARL I-- from the left statue and --FOX GEM
(HELL)-- from the right statue. After grabbing both pearls TEST OF VALOR #1
will start.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR # 1 - Sawayama Castle Town - 2R Room

Carry out the technique within the time limit!

Technique: Critical X 5
Time Left: 3:00

The best way to approach this battle is to have a high Critical Chain level
with your skills. Chained attacks using Oni Magic will give you a critical per
chain. You can get three chains right off the bat with the Gacha that will
teleport into the room with two Genma Soldiers. Chain them with one Oni Magic
Critical attack then hit the Gacha with another Magic Attack as he gets up.
Run over to the archer and the soldier to the side and use an Oni Magic attack
to gain the gold!

Gold: Ice Rifle
Silver: Medicine LV2
Bronze: Grass

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Leave this room and travel over to door 4R.

= 4R Room =

The left Armored Genma will attack as you walk up to the fox statue. After
defeating him, examine the left fox statue to gain --RED PEARL III-- from its
mouth then grab --FOX GEM (HEAVEN)-- from the right statue. Like clockwork,
three Genma will teleport into the room near the entrance. Fight off the Ninja
Genma and Axeman then exit. Room 1R is the next destination.

= 1R Room =

Grab the SECRET MED LV1 from the well off to the side and suck the Red Soul
Altar dry. Do the usual fox statue examining to get --BLUE PEARL IV-- and --
FOX GEM (TITAN)--. Spider Genma and an Archer will teleport into the room.
Both of the types are just as bad, so try to knock the Spiders down then rush
toward the Archer and defeat him. The next destination is Room 5B. You will
have to enter room 3B to the side to get there though.

= 5B Room =

Both of the Armored Genma will assault you as you run toward the statues. Give
Jubei the order to "Distract Enemy" so you can fight one at a time. Hit them
carefully while remembering to block their attacks! Grab --FOX GEM (ANIMAL)--
from the right statue after placing Blue Pearl IV in the left statue's mouth.
Crows and an Archer will teleport into the room. Use uppercut attacks to
defeat the crows easily. Go back out to the Fox Gate.

= Fox Gate =

Save your game at the Enchanted Mirror and place all six gems on the middle
door to enter.

Boss - Tenkai

Tenkai is an extremely easy boss if you take advantage of him when he blocks.
Stand back while blocking and wait for him to move into you. He will most
likely do his full combo then block. Kick him while he blocks and unleash a
critical hit by pressing toward him and the [] button. Attack him while he
falls. You will defeat him in no time with the constant critical attacks that
you can get on him. His combos can be easily sidestepped as well and he has
some lag after performing a combo so you can easily hit him after blocking one.
The only move that is unblockable is his magic attack, which is short range so
it shouldn't cause you too much trouble. Beware his great distance with the
spear - if you allow him to hit you then you may fall victim to his entire
combo.

Boss - Genma Bug

Stay to one of the sides (near a door) when the Genma starts to shoot a
shockwave of electricity along the ground. He only opens up right after an
attack. When he stops moving after performing his electric shockwave (the
razors will stop) or whenever he buries his razor blade sphere into the ground
give Tenkai the order to "Go All-out" and run over to the boss and attack.
After about two combos you will need to retreat to the nearest door and tell
Tenkai to "Wait and Recover" since the boss will retaliate with an attack. If
he buries his razor sphere into the ground, he will bring it up from the ground
and perform a pendulum-type swing with the razor sphere. If you stand in front
of the Genma Bug at any time he will try to swing his razor sphere at you as
well. Keep to the sides and only attack the boss when he stops. Keep in mind
that the first hit of any razor from his sphere will break your guard so you
can't very well just stand underneath him while the razors are moving. When he
sticks his sphere in the ground it is best to run behind him since he will have
electric shots spread along the path in front of him. You will sometimes have
to block his razor sphere as he scurries down the path since it will move from
the side to side but it will not hit you if you remain blocking. Sadly you
can't switch over to Tenkai during this battle, but you can equip him with an
accessory to boost his attack a bit. Always have him "Wait and Recover" while
the Genma performs its attacks then issue the "Go All-out" command when the
boss is open to attack. This shouldn't be too long of a battle if have Tenkai
help you when the boss staggers. When the Genma Bug nears his last bit of life
he will start to shoot out more electric shockwaves than usual per attack.

HIDEOUT 4

Some new items are now available in the shop. Be sure to power up Tenkai a bit
since you will need him the most on the next stage. His skills can also be
powered up dramatically at the moment in order to keep him on the same level
with the other characters.

*********************** Sawayama Castle Town (Backtrack) **********************

The only reason to backtrack to this area is for Test of Valor #2.

= 4R Room =

As you walk into the back of the room Test of Valor #2 will start. Recognize
the two guys in the cutscene? They're the same two that assaulted Jubei at the
beginning of the game.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Sawayama Castle Town (Backtrack) - 4R Room

Protect the target!
Time Left: 3:00

This is a hard one to get a gold rank on. You must protect the two guards from
the Genma. Genma Soldiers and Gachas will constantly enter the area. Set your
partner to guard so that he will not take any extra damage that will lower your
rank. Make sure to take out the Gacha as soon as he teleport into the area.
He will always teleport into the area near the entrance. Use an Oni Magic
Critical to defeat him quickly or he will spin his club straight toward the two
guards. Make sure to watch for the Gacha and kill him every time one of them
teleport into the area. Don't worry about the Soldier Genma that much. Very
minimal damage must be suffered in order to get a gold rank.

Here's some helpful strategy that I have received from an email:

"I have found that for all the 'Protect the Target!' TOVs, having Jubei as a
partner and commanding her to 'Distract Enemy' seems to greatly improve one's
chances at getting a Gold Ranking, simply because the enemies will be focused
on Jubei rather than the two hapless samurais. Then, it will simply be a matter
of protecting Jubei and making sure she doesn't take damage."

(Thanks to Boone)

Gold: Horin
Silver: Purple Ring

****************************** Sawayama Dungeon *******************************

= Cave Entrance =

From the start of the area, switch to Tenkai and run up to the dead body in the
background. Use O to talk to the dead spirit inside of the body and you will
receive an ANTIDOTE. In order to proceed down the path to the right you will
need to find a gear to lower the bridge. Run down the left path and a new
Genma will teleport into the area. These Mushroom Genma will constantly spawn
other Genma while they remain alive. Always focus your attacks on these
whenever they appear. As they start to shake they will release a poison gas
that will cause a poison state if it touches you. The Mushroom Genma are
heavily armored so you will spend quite a bit of time hitting them. Be sure to
back off when you see them shake to avoid the gas cloud. The first Mushroom
Genma will summon Soldier Genma and the second will summon Spear Genma. Axeman
Genma will teleport into the room when you try to leave. Grab the S. CASTLE
DUNGEON MAP to the side of the elevator shaft before going further into the
cave.

= Stone Pillar Room 1 =

Grab the ONI JEWEL from the side of the wall and save your game at the
Enchanted Mirror. Walk across the two bridges up ahead and talk to the dead
body near the second bridge. He will tell you how to work the lift. Position
one of your characters on the dark square in front of the switch with the blue
glow and tell him to wait. Switch to your other character and step on the
switch to raise your other character to the area above. Switch back to your
other character and have him stand on the square to the right of him. Switch
back to the top character and step on the purple switch to raise your other
character to the top. Switch back once again and have your other character
step on the final switch to move the block in front of him downward revealing a
door. Position one of your characters on that stone pillar that you just
lowered and then step on the switch once again to make it rise into the air.
Switch to the character on the pillar to find a POWER JEWEL on a lantern at the
very top. Solve the puzzle box to the side before leaving to get Soki's
CUTTING WIND sword. Go through the door when you're finished.

= Stone Pillar Room 2 =

Step into the cave and grab the STONE PILLARS file. Take both characters down
the ladder then position Tenkai on the blue stone pillar and step on the blue
switch with Soki so Tenkai is lifted upward. With Tenkai, talk to the dead
body next to the second stone pillar to get the --CAVE DOOR KEY--. Have Soki
run all the way to the end of the bottom section to grab the MEDICINE LV2 off
the ground. Step on the second blue switch so Tenkai can cross all the way
over to the other side on the top. Lower the second blue stone pillar then
stand on it with Soki and have Tenkai step on the top switch to bring Soki up
to the second level. Now you can leave this room by unlocking the door at the
end. Save your game at the Enchanted Mirror next to the door before leaving.

= Cave Entrance =

Lower the folding ladder to the side and tell Soki to wait while you climb down
the ladder with Tenkai. Fight off the enemies that appear then stand on the
stone pillar in between the shaft across from the ladder you just climbed down.
Switch back to Soki and have him step on the switch to raise Tenkai upward.
Talk to the dead body to get Tenkai's YAMA spear. Talk to the other dead body
next to the shrine at the end of the path to engage in a Genma battle. An
Invisible Genma will attack you. Use your Soul Absorption to make the Genma
reveal itself then attack it when it appears. The Genma is totally invincible
otherwise. Grab the COPPER GEAR from near the dead body after the fight.
Stand on the stone pillar and have Soki lower it for you. Bring Soki down the
ladder then head back to the very beginning. Take the right path this time,
next to the very first dead body, and place the Copper Gear on the device to
lower the bridge. An Axeman Genma will try to stop you. Open the door across
from the bridge.

= Cave Lake =

Two Ninja Genma will attack as soon as you enter and an Archer will be shooting
arrows from the other side of the hole in front of you. Defeat the Archer
first then go after the Ninja Genma. Use Tenkai to talk to the spirit of the
dead body afterward for a bit of info about the Westerner. You'll need Jubei
to get to the treasure chest next to the dead body (you'll need to backtrack).
Another gear is needed for the bridge off to the left side of the cave. Enter
the path directly across from the door you just came through. The Mushroom
Genma down the path will summon Axeman Genma. Use Oni Magic to make quick work
of them all, then grab the ONI MED LV2 off the crate to the right. Enter the
doorway up ahead to find TAKUAN'S DIARY 3 off to the side and an Enchanted
Mirror further down the path. The small door is shut so enter the large door.

= Westerner's Cell =

Boss - Roberto

Roberto is a bit harder than the other character bosses that you have fought
mainly because his combo will cause you to stagger. Stay locked on to him and
wait for him to step toward you. Step back as soon as he steps forward then
move to either side of him as he starts to unleash a series of jabs. Attack
him with a combo or Oni Magic from the side while he is open. The attacks will
not cause him to stagger until about the second hit so be sure to start early.
One good thing about this battle is that you will only have to look out for his
combo since that's all that he will do, but the straight punch after the series
of jabs will always cause you to stagger and allow him to hit you with the rest
of the combo so you will have to dodge it, counter it, or deflect it.
Thankfully, he will always step forward before doing the combo so you can use
that as a warning. If he ever stands and blocks, kick him and unleash a
counter just like you did with Tenkai.

After the battle Soldier Genma will attack. Kill them and be sure to absorb
the souls quickly since this sequence will not last too long.

Boss - Sakon

Rule #1: DO NOT hit Sakon from the front since he will always have a fire
shield in front of him unless you can manage to stun him with the help of
Tenkai.

Rule #2: DO NOT let Sakon corner you. If he manages to work you into a corner,
you are dead. His flames will murder you as you try to escape.

With those two rules in mind Sakon is actually not that hard of a boss since
his attacks are limited for the moment. He will walk around the room and stab
at you three times. Run around the area without locking on to avoid them or
block (last hit only). After the third stab, circle around him and hit him
from the back with one combo. You may be able to sneak in two more hits after
the combo, but don't do any more than that. He will turn around and start to
walk toward you once again. Get far away from him and wait for him to do his
three stabs again. Get behind him once again after the third stab and hit him.
Sometimes you can circle Sakon and hit him from the back even if he doesn't
attack you. Don't do a full combo if he hasn't attacked since he will recover
faster. If you tell Tenkai to "Go All-out" while Sakon is trying to hit you
with spear thrust then Tenkai may be able to stun Sakon momentarily. Run up
and hit Sakon while he is stunned since he will lose his shield, but back off
as he summons another flame shield. You can also order Tenkai to "Pray" so
your attacks will take off more. The only bad thing about fighting Sakon
aggressively with the help Tenkai is that he will start to do his horizontal
spear attack that is likely to murder you in such a small room.

= Above the Prison =

Grab the MEDICINE LEVEL 2 from behind you and continue up ahead with your new
partner. In order to get past the barricade, switch to Ohatsu and use her
special ability (O) to grapple across the barricade. On the other side, open
the double doors. Grab TAKUAN'S DIARY 4 and go through the next set of doors
ahead.

= Castle Courtyard =

Head off to the right side and unlock the door to let Soki through. Spear
Genma and Soldier Genma will attack. Take control of Ohatsu and shoot the
Archer Genma at the top of the building in the back to start things off, then
switch back to Soki and set Ohatsu to "Cover Fire" and she will help you
greatly. Grab the FOSSILIZED BONE from near the tree and enter through the
double doors in the middle (the door down the ramp is locked).

= Outer Gate =

The chest contains a WARRIOR'S CODE. Save your game at the Enchanted Mirror
and use it to power up Ohatsu. Enter the next door when you're ready.

= Castle Entrance =

This room can be deadly with the Door Guardian's wide range laser. Defeat the
Spider Genma first then concentrate on the Door Guardian. It's best to use Oni
Magic to chop through all three enemies to speed up the battle. ELEVATOR NOTES
are laying on the ground to the left. Enter the door up ahead since the others
are locked. Enter the door on the left and go up the ladder then use Ohatsu's
grapple ability to swing over the spikes and get the --1F EAST DOOR KEY-- on
the other side of the room. Go back down the ladder and enter the middle room.

= Folding Screen Room =

Solve the puzzle box to the side to get Ohatsu's DECADENCE and save your game
at the Enchanted Mirror.

nothing else to be done up the ladder for now so exit the room.

= Castle Entrance =

Position Ohatsu next to the lever on the right, then place the lever on the

will attack from behind. Defeat them and use the East Door Key on the right

door to the side is locked for the moment. Go across the plank and climb down
the ladder to find the --2F CENTRAL DOOR KEY--. Run back and use the key on
the door in the middle. Soldier and Axe Genma will teleport into the room -
nothing major.

Switch to Ohatsu and bomb the gate (O) to your right upon entering. Enter the
next room to find --3F MACHINE LEVER-- and VASSAL'S MEMO 1. Go up the ladder
to find a SECRET MED LV2. Backtrack to the room where you bombed the door and

Don't use any of your souls to power up Ohatsu this time - only level up Soki
for the moment because you will definitely need it. Save your game at the
Enchanted Mirror then bomb the door with Ohatsu and enter.

Boss- Munenori

This fight is not hard if you use the right weapon. DO NOT use the Cutting
Wind or any other 5-hit combo sword because Munenori will always counter the
fifth hit with a Reverse Air Slash that will be a guaranteed hit for him since
you will be recovering when he does it. He will sometimes counter a 3-hit
combo sword as well since the final hit will hit him multiple times. Use a 4-
hit combo blade (Fire Dance, Glacier Song, Lamentation) and you will be fine.
The 4-hit combo will always knock him down. Make sure to block his sand attack
if you stand near him while he is down or he will stun you with the sand,
leaving you open to his combos. Don't every go for a finisher while he is on
the ground or Soki will be coughing up sand - combo slashes are ok, though
slightly risky. The safest time to hit Munenori is directly after his 4-hit
combo or while he is taunting you.

His attacks range from a 4-hit combo, a Reverse Air Slash, a Double Slash, and
a move where he will summon his crows after you (watch for the whistle) all of
which can be blocked. Some of the attacks will break your guard, but they will
not hit you as long as you block. The only move you have to watch out for is
his Slash then Thrust combo since the Slash will break your guard as he chains
into the Thrust. Watch for him to hold his sword to do the Slash then back
away from him or move to the side before he can catch you or attack him. Try
to beat him without losing any life if at all possible.

Grab the MEDICINE LV3 from the chest after the battle and climb back down the
ladder to save your game once again. Reenter the room and climb up the ladder
next to the giant bug in the background for a cutscene.

Boss - Genma Wasp

This boss appears hard and can actually be quite a pain if you don't see the
warnings for his attacks, but all you have to do is watch his head. The wasp
will always hiss right before it does an attack. He will do one of three
attacks after hissing. He will either release poison from his mouth in the
area next to him, try to slice you with his arm, or release a gust of wind from
his mouth. The gust and arm are both blockable, but you must move away from
the arm so it does not hit you twice since the first hit will break your guard.
You will have to move away from the area around its head when it spews poison.
The good thing about its attacks is that it will hit the Genma around the area
and most likely kill them releasing tons of souls around the room. The boss
will constantly drop eggs from its egg sac, which Genma will hatch out of. The
eggs can be destroyed but it really doesn't matter whether you destroy them or
not since there will be about five eggs at a time.

Hit the wasp in the head with any weapon of your choosing to damage it. It can
be hit at any time, but make sure to back off and prepare for its attack
whenever it hisses. Issue out the order for Roberto to "Wait and Recover"
whenever the wasp hisses in order for him to last a bit longer. Keep an eye on
the Genma around you as well while attacking the wasp, since they can sometimes
block you off when you try to dodge the wasp's attacks. It's best not to even
worry about the Genma and just let the wasp kill them. As long as you watch
the wasp very closely and react when it hisses you won't have any problems.

HIDEOUT 5

As usual some new items are available at the item shop. If you are confused on
what partner you should upgrade with souls for the next stage then upgrade
Tenkai. Now would be a good time to go back to any of the previous stages and
get some of the extra items that you missed with your partners.

************************************ Kyoto ************************************

= Main Street =

Turn around and use the Enchanted Mirror to get an ally. It doesn't matter
what ally you choose, but it is a very good idea to have one for this stage.
Run past the wooden carts to the left of the Enchanted Mirror to find a path
leading to an ONI JEWEL. As you rush down the main road up ahead, tons of
Genma Soldiers will charge at you and they will keep teleporting into the area.
These Genma Soldiers are much more aggressive than the ones you have been
fighting. They each will do a three hit combo after charging at you with their
weapon raised. Grab the KYOTO AREA MAP from the first stand on the right and
the MEDICINE LV 3 from the second stand on the left then go through the door at
the end.

= Connecting Road =

Rush to the left and get rid of the first Door Guardian on the wall before
dealing with the Soldier Genma. There is another Door Guardian guarding the
exit. Use the Soldier Genma as starters for Oni Magic chains so you can hit
the Door Guardians with part of the chain if you have trouble defeating them.
An ONI MED LV 2 is on the stand to the right.

= Bridge =

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Kyoto - Bridge

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Genma General
Time Left: 2:00

The Genma General is heavily armored and can be hard to knock down, but that is
nothing that a little Oni Magic Critical can't fix. Rush toward the Genma
General in the back as the test starts and set your partner to "Go All-out".
Watch out for the archer's arrows as you run toward him. As you make it next
to any enemy, use Oni Magic and chain a critical hit on all of them to knock
them all down then slash away at the Genma General while he falls. Do not let
up for a second.

Gold: Ice Sword
Silver: Medicine LV2
Bronze: Wildflower

Run back to the middle of the bridge to find a puzzle box with Jubei's EARTH

= Connecting Road =

Run up ahead to find a sleeping Gacha. Genma Soldiers and another Gacha will
teleport into the area so you will most likely awake the sleeping Gacha. Use
Oni Magic to chop through them all at once. There is a GAMBLER'S THIMBLE on
the stand to the left. Open the door across from the stand.

= Alleyway =

Three Armored Genma will be waiting as you walk down the street. They will
automatically attack so you can't slip past them. If you have Jubei, her
"Distract Enemy" command will really come in handy here. Genma Soldiers will
teleport into the area after the Armored Genma are defeated. Go down the small
alley to the right and grab TAKUAN'S DIARY 5 and the POWER JEWEL near the
Enchanted Mirror. Run down the road and three Door Guardians will appear at
the end. Be extremely careful while hitting the Door Guardian on the exit door
since you have to go up on a ramp and you will have to stay in front of him,
directly in the path of his laser, in order to hit him. All the Door Guardians
have a wide range with their lasers so make sure to watch them closely. Check
the chest off to the right for a TRUE TIGER EYE. Equip the True Tiger Eye to
Soki since he will need it in just a bit.

********************************* Daigo Temple ********************************

= Path to Daigo Temple =

Now you are in control of Soki alone. A cutscene will play and will introduce
the Tunneler Genma. These Genma have an intense tunneling attack that will
take off great damage if you do not block the moment they shoot up from the
ground. While they are burrowing under the ground you can stab them with a
finisher for a one hit kill if you time it just right. A few Soldier Genma
will join the Tunneler. Grab the DAIGO TEMPLE MAP from the left side of the
path. As you move up the path, fireballs will float down from ahead. Dodge
them or block as they go by. The first cherry tree that you go by will have a
SECRET MED LV1 by it.

= Path to Daigo Temple (continued) =

More Tunneler Genma, Soldier Genma, and Fireballs will be after you while
running up the path. The Fireballs will actually destroy the Genma if they hit
one. Check near the cherry tree right before the Enchanted Mirror to find a
chest with a WARRIOR'S RING inside. Save your game at the Enchanted Mirror and
continue upwards.

= Path to Daigo Temple (continued) =

KIYOMASA'S MEMO will by lying by the first tree as you continue along the path.
The Fireballs start to really pour down at this part so make sure to stop and
block them even if you are fighting Genma. Archer Genma will try to stop you
once you reach the second tree. The Archers now shoot out three arrows so they
will take more damage than what you are used to from prior stages. Near the
second tree you will find a POWER JEWEL. Run up the stairs to the next area.

= Juntei Hall =

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Kyoto - Juntei Hall

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Don Gacha
Time Left: 1:00

The Fireballs will make this challenge harder than it should be. Start off
with Oni Magic to knock the Don Gacha down then slash at him while he is down.
Make sure to keep a sharp eye on the Fireballs that will float down from the
stairs. They will damage the Don Gacha as well as you, so they are like a
blessing and a curse at the same time. In order to get a gold, stay locked on
to the Don Gacha at ALL TIMES and use Oni Magic while you block the fireballs.
You can afford to get hit once and still get a gold.

Gold: Black Rifle
Silver: Purple Ring
Bronze: Red Mushrooms

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This is an excellent place to Soul farm if you need some extra souls for
upgrades, just exit the area and reenter for some more Soldier Genma to spawn.
The Test of Valor will yield some decent soul amounts as well. Save your game
at the Enchanted Mirror and head up the stairs.

= Stairs to Daigo Temple =

Run up the stairs and dodge the Fireballs that float down. Near the middle you
will find a SECRET MED LV2. Near the top, the Fireballs will become quite
intense for such a narrow stairway so you will be forced to block at times. A
cutscene will play once you reach the top.

Boss - Sakon

Now we're back in control of Tenkai. This boss fight is basically the same as
the last time you fought Sakon only this time you have a bigger area to fight
him in, which is a major blessing! In fact there is so much space this time
that you do not even have to worry about blocking if you follow the method
below. At the start of the battle run directly behind him and start attacking.
He's much easier to stun this time so you'll be able to hit him a bit more than
the last battle, but be sure to back off when he resummons his fire shield
around him after stunning him. Run to one of the ends of the stage and wait
for him to do three swings then run behind him and attack him. Run away when
he starts to summon his fire shield once again then wait for the three hits.
Get behind him again and attack. Wash, rinse, repeat and you'll have him down
in no time! If you hit him with Tenkai's Hell Jab while he is stunned you can
wear him down very quickly. Tap the [] button to keep the Hell Jab going.

Boss - Genma Generals

With the power of the Oni activated, you will be invincible during this fight
so you can't lose. Use /\ slices to speed up the battle.

Boss - Hideyoshi

For the first part of this battle you will be invincible once again. Use /\
slashes to quickly take Hideyoshi's life down.

Once he nears half of his life, the real battle will begin. He will summon
more power and his attacks will become more aggressive plus they will now take
damage from you. Use /\ to hit him, but be sure to guard immediately after
hitting him since he will most likely retaliate with an energy shot. He will
release a bunch of energy spheres around the area during the fight. The energy
spheres are the main things that make this battle annoying since you will
constantly have to watch out for them while chasing him and they will break
your guard to where his other moves will hit you. He may sometimes stop and
shoot some of his power into the energy spheres, which will connect them all
with electricity as they move around the area. The electricity is blockable,
but the spheres will break your guard to where the electricity will hit if they
pass by you, so it is best to try to hit Hideyoshi while he charges the spheres
with his power if possible. If you keep hitting him, the energy spheres will
eventually disappear and he will have to summon more. The more aggressive you
are during this battle, the easier the battle will be. This battle takes
patience, but if you block directly after hitting him and dodge his spheres
well then you will not have to use any recovery items to defeat him.

********************************** Mount Hiei *********************************

= Forest Path =

Rush down the path ahead and a cutscene will play that will introduce you to
one of the more annoying enemies in this game, the Disc Thrower Genma. These
enemies will constantly hop around the area and toss energy disc from long
range. They can be hard to catch at times, but they will annoy you pretty
badly when mixed with other enemies, so try to hunt them down first. Genma
Soldiers will accompany them this time. Set Ohatsu's command to "Cover fire"
to help you out a bit. Grab the RARE MUSHROOMS near the bottom of the fallen
tree and continue forward.

A MEDICINE LV2 is lying off to the side. Soldier Genma will teleport into the
area and attack. Walk down the path in the back to continue. You will reach
another clearing. There is a puzzle box in the back of the left path with
Soki's ONI CUTTER inside, but a Gacha and a Don Gacha will teleport into the
area after you approach it. Be sure to have Ohatsu set to "Cover fire" and use
Oni Magic to chain kill them. Try to work them away from each other for the
best results. Make sure to get the Oni Cutter since you will definitely need
it! When you enter the next area a cutscene will start.

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Mount Hiei - Ruins

Target: Don Gacha X3
Time Left: 2:00

Oni Magic Critical Chains are the key to winning this battle. Work on the two
Don Gacha's on the right side first. Knock them down with a Critical Chain
then slash at them while they get up. You just basically have to be leveled up
enough to take off some good damage to finish this test of valor. If you see
that a Don Gacha is about to hit you then quickly use Oni Magic on him. Your
partner can help out a bit, but make sure to have him guard if the Don Gachas
continually knock him down.

In the back of the building you will find a FRIENDSHIP SCARF in the chest to
the right and a Red Soul Altar to the left. Run up the stairs.

= Pagoda Remains =

Near the top of the stairs a MT. HIEI LEGEND 1 file will be lying on the
ground. At the very top you will find a chest with Ohatsu's GUARDIAN inside,
some RARE MUSHROOMS off to the right side, and an Enchanted Mirror to the
right. Start powering up the Oni Cutter now! The Bomber Genma will be
introduced after you collect the Guardian from the chest. These enemies will
lay down bombs near you then run off as the bomb explodes. The bomb is
unblockable so you must keep your distance from it. Disc Thrower Genma will
jump down from the trees eventually. Head to the left path.

= Forest Path =

Bomber Genma will teleport into the area eventually as you run down the path
along with some Soldier Genma.

= Temple Entrance =

Grab the FOSSILIZED BONE in the chest to the left and go through the shrine
door to find plenty of Bombers and Soldier Genma.

= Lazuline Hall Courtyard =

A file on MT. HIEI LEGEND 2 will be lying next to the tree to the right. Run
up the stairs and grab the SECRET MED LV1 to the left and save your game at the
Enchanted Mirror then enter the temple. Make sure to power up the Oni Cutter.

** For the parts below, make sure to look at your map on the game (Select) when
comparing it to the diagrams to help you out. Please note that the Exit
Portal will be random and will be one of the three portals on that floor. You
must go to the Candle Room on each floor in order to know what portal to use in
order to make it to the next floor. The RED candle will show you the correct
portal and BLUE candle will show you your current room.

= Oni Mansion First Floor =

Collect the ONI MANSION MAP from the side because you definitely will need it.
Move up one room and grab the --ORANGE KEY-- from the floor. The candles will
show you which room you need to get to in order to reach the next level. You
will need to enter the correct portal in the correct room in order to proceed
deeper into the Oni Mansion. If you choose the wrong portal then you will be
teleported back to the current floor. From the candle room, turn right and go
all the way to the room marked with the Orange Key at the bottom. There will
be an Invisible Genma inside along with a chest that contains some FANGS. Go
all the way to the top right room on the map and grab the MEDICINE LV 2 then
make your way to the Exit Portal as shown in the Candle Room (it is one of the
three portals on this floor).

poison. You need to make it to the room on the right side of where you start
to get the last Mushroom Genma and to get rid of the electric spheres in the
other rooms. The door to your right is barred so go left and go all the way
around to it. Fight off the second Mushroom Genma to get rid of the rest of
the electric spheres. Unbar the door that leads back to the start. Grab the

rooms to find a Door Guardian guarding a barred door and a Mushroom Genma in
the room right beside you. Defeat the Door Guardian and unbar the door then
take out the Mushroom Genma by standing in the doorway and thrusting at him. A
Bomber will teleport into the room after you destroy the Mushroom Genma. Solve
the puzzle box north of that room to find a DRAGON OF PEACE charm. Go down to
the middle south to find the --GREEN KEY--. Return to the room across from the
Candle Room to unlock the door and enter the Candle Room. Run back to the room
where you found the Purple Key and use the Blue Key on the locked door. Grab
the MEDICINE LV3 from the chest, but don't go through the portal in that room.
Run all the way to whichever of the three portals is the Exit Portal to exit
the fifth floor and start a cutscene.

Boss - Gargant

Use the Oni Cutter for this battle. In order to hit this boss you will have to
break his weapon. When the battle starts, run up and hit him until he jumps
away or jumps behind you, then hit him a few more times until he jumps again.
Usually he will jump away after three hits, sometimes less. NEVER do the full
combo in this battle or he will most likely hit you while you recover. You
will have to constantly follow this boss around the room as you hit him. He
will block each hit as long as he has his sword.

Eventually his sword will break and you will be able to hit him. This is where
you can totally murder him if you know just how to hit him. Hit him with just
enough hits to where you are about to go into the final hit of your combo then
pause and use a thrust on him. Continue the combo after the thrust then right
before ending the combo do another thrust. So your combo should be [], [], [],
[], pause, forward + [], repeat. If you can keep this up, you can nearly kill
him before he gets his weapon back. This method works even better with a 4-hit
combo blade, but your most powerful blade will most likely be the Oni Cutter so
I would suggest using that weapon instead. Eventually he will parry your
attacks and his weapon will start to form in his hands again then you will have
to break it like before. If you do normal combos (and knock him down) while he
is weaponless he will regenerate his sword much faster, but if you never knock
him down, like I suggested, then you will be able to get in plenty of hits
before he regenerates the sword. All of his attacks can be blocked except for
his force field move that he will do at the end of combos and while weaponless.
Not all of his combos end with the force field, but there is no warning as to
what move he will do at the end of each combo. Try to beat him without losing
too much life since you have another battle after this one.

Magic attacks work well against him when he doesn't have his blade as well.
Hit him with a level 1 Oni Magic attack then follow it up with a critical
attack to stun him - you can do another Oni Magic Critical while he is stunned.
If you have enough Oni Meds you can actually kill him by doing continuous Oni
Magic Criticals while he is stunned. This is actually easier than the other
way, but you're going to need some Oni Meds to keep your magic gauge filled.
Depending on how leveled up your blade is, you might need quite a few Oni Meds.

Soki will gain the ONI ORB after defeating the boss. A cutscene will take
place then another boss battle will start.

Boss - Genma Ohatsu

This battle is much like the last battle with Ohatsu except this time there is
no cover for you or her. Block her bullets as you move toward her then attack
her with a combo or a thrust attack (if you have the extra thrust move). Don't
stand next to her as she gets up or she might hit you with a burst round. If
she fires normally again, then hit her afterwards. Eventually she will grapple
to another side of the room and you must make your way to her once again while
blocking her bullets. She relies on burst rounds toward the end of the battle
so make sure to watch out for them by keeping your distance until she fires
normal rounds. Once you take all of her life you will have a split second to
do a Sword of Purification move on her to purify her. It will say "R2: Purify"
on the top right of the screen. Make sure to wait for that message to appear
before performing the purification. Ohatsu will be dazed during the message.
Use the Stab (Forward + R2) to easily hit her while she's dazed and end the
battle. If you miss, she will regain all of her life and you will be forced to
wear her down again. The Purifying Sword will always recharge after a while so
you can perform the move again.

HIDEOUT 6

Much more is now available! First of all, if you have a Warrior's Code and
Invention Notes, allow Ohatsu to combine them to receive a Merchant Stamp for
20% off all of the Merchant's items while equipped. Your skills can now be
fully upgraded. Attack has 10 slots available and every other command that was
once transparent can now be filled to max level by upgrading your skills. Some
new items are available in the shop. Talk to Minokichi and you will see that
you now have a new "Dark Realm" option. Be sure to save before choosing it.
The Dark Realm will allow you to go through 100 levels of Genma fighting and
will provide you with a special item at the end of every ten stages. You can
exit the Dark Realm at any time after clearing one level of enemies by entering
the portal and choosing "Hideout". You should use this as you main source of
leveling up for the coming stages. Be sure to keep a backup save at your
Hideout just in case you feel that you need to level up more to make your way
through the current stage. You also have access to the Oni Awakening Powers,
which are exclusive to each chacter. Fill the Overdrive Gauge around the
current Magic Element to use the Oni Awakening. Walk to the open door and try
to exit to start the next stage.

**************************** Mount Hiei (Backtrack) ***************************

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Lazuline Hall Courtyard - Mount Hiei (Backtrack)

Absorb souls within the time limit!

Souls: 2000
Time Left: 3:00

The best way to finish this Test of Valor with a good ranking is to not worry
as much about the Soul Absorber Genma that will float above you. Concentrate
on getting as many Oni Magic Critical Chains on the Soldier Genma as you can to
help increase the souls. Drain the souls immediately afterward before the Soul
Absorber gets a chance to absorb the souls. It is best not to have your
partner help you out since they will just mess up the chains. Ohatsu might be
able to help you take down the Soul Absorber with her long distance attacks if
you decide to go after him.

= Gate =

As Minokichi explains at the beginning, you can kick the Cannon Genma to make
them change their firing direction. You can actually make them fire on other
Genma if they are facing the right way. Here you will be swamped by an endless
amount of Soldier Genma that will constantly teleport into the area. This is
an excellent place to build up your Overdrive Gauge. Use Soki's Purifying
Sword to kill the enemies and get Purple Souls to quickly fill your Overdrive.
Defeat the Cannon Genma to get rid of the force field in front of the gate.
The chest on the left contains a POWER JEWEL and you will find an A. CASTLE
GROUNDS MAP next to the Enchanted Mirror. Go through the gateway ahead.

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Azuchi Castle - Open Area

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Crab Walker

Time Left: 5:00

Stay away from the middle since the Cannon Genma will be firing constantly in
the middle portion. This is a hard one, and you'll most likely have to
backtrack to get a gold here. Take control of Ohatsu and fire constantly at
the Crab Walker while you have Soki set to "Go All-out". Quickly change Soki
to wait and recover when you see the Crab Walker readying an attack with his
arm or jumping. Keep your distance with Ohatsu and keep firing. If you have a
high level gun then you should finish him quickly. The annoying part about
this test is that the Crab Walker will constantly jump to different areas so
you will have to follow him quite a bit. You must beat him within the first
two minutes for a gold.

= Old Battleground =

Mushroom Genma will release Spear Genma as you enter this area. The Spear
Genma will rush you, but make sure to let them come to you so more Spear Genma
do not come behind them. Grab TAKUAN'S DIARY 6 to the side of the Enchanted
Mirror and switch to Ohatsu. Equip a weapon that will reach the Mushroom Genma
in the back and shoot him from a distance. Do this for the next Mushroom Genma
down the path ahead and this will save you a few headaches. Any type of rifle
works well. A Don Gacha will appear as you move to the right. He's not much
of a problem by himself if you have already defeated the surrounding Mushroom
Genma and have Ohatsu set to "Cover Fire". Switch control to Ohatsu and move
toward the area far down to the left of the folding ladder and you should be
able to grapple up to the area above from there. Look for the blue glow.
While on top with Ohatsu, run over to the folding ladder and unfold it so Soki
can climb up. With Ohatsu, target the Genma Mushroom in the back and destroy
it. This thing will summon Spider Genma if you allow it to. Two Don Gacha
will teleport into the area - the second will not appear until after the first
is destroyed. Grab the SECRET MED LV2 from the side and go through the gate at
the end.

= Mountain =

Take control of Ohatsu and shoot the Archer all the way in the background on
the side of the mountain before you go up the ladder.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Azuchi Castle - Mountain

Carry out the technique within the time limit!

Technique: Finisher X5
Time Left: 3:00

Equip your lowest level sword then hit the Tunneler Genma until you knock them
down. Rush over and use a finisher to stab them while they are on the ground
and keep tapping []. If Soki drives his sword deeper into the grounded Genma
that will count as a finisher as well, so you can get a total two per knockdown
if you tap the button. Don't forget that you can stab the Tunnelers while they
burrow under the ground! If you return (from backtracking) to this mission
with too high of a level, then try equipping your worst weapon.

You can also use the Lift (Back +[]) move to uppercut the Tunnelers' into the
air then stab them while they are on the ground.

Another useful technique to do this quickly is to use Roberto's ground attack.
Each of his attacks will count as a finisher. This means that you will have to
backtrack to this stage after you get him however.

Gold: Flame Blade
Silver: Pearl Ring
Bronze: Red Mushrooms

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

After the battle switch to Ohatsu and shoot at the crows until they stop
teleporting into the area. They will stop eventually. Move to the area to the
right of the folding ladder (stand away from the wall a bit) then grapple to
the area above with Ohatsu. Run over to the folding ladder and unfold it for
Soki then grab the ONI JEWEL next to the door. Go through the door to enter
Azuchi Castle.

= Castle Entrance =

Run ahead and Soki will notice the force field down the hall and comment on it.
Switch to Ohatsu and position her on the red block to open the shell above the
door. Use O to shoot the inside of the shell and the force field will
deactivate. "That damn Munenori..." indeed, since you will have to use Ohatsu
to deactivate force fields like this one throughout Castle Azuchi. Run down
the hall and defeat the Genma up ahead - use Ohatsu for the Genma in the
distance and behind the force fields. Use the pole and grapple to the area
ahead with Ohatsu then shoot the archer on the other side. Grapple again to
reach the door on the other end. Ohatsu will comment on having good sight of
the shell above the door. Stand in that place (it's actually further back) and
have Soki step on the green square on his side to open the shell then shoot it
with Ohatsu. Now Soki can get across to Ohatsu's side. Position one of your
characters next to the lever and then the other next to the barred door. Pull
the lever to lower the bars in front of the door then quickly switch to your
other character and enter the door.

= Elevator Room =

Soldier Genma and a Disc Thrower will attack as you enter this room. Fight
them off and grab the ONI MED LV3 next to the Enchanted Mirror. After saving
your game, pick up the EMERGENCY PROCEDURE file next to the elevator. Don't
you just love how madmen always leave their most important files lying around
in the open in action games nowadays? Move toward the door with the Genma on
it and blow it up with Ohatsu. Ohatsu will mention that she can see another
device in the background that she can get a clear shot at. You can go either
way and you'll eventually have to go both ways, but I'll start with the area
behind the door you are closest to.

= East Rooftop =

Ninja Genma will attack as you walk along the roof. Pick up the NECKLACE OF
PEACE in the chest on the outer edge and grab the AZUCHI CASTLE MAP near the
lever. Take control of Ohatsu and move up the ramp in the roof to the right of
the lever until you see a blue glow. Grapple to the pole and pull yourself
across. Lower the folding ladder to make things easier when you backtrack to
this stage later. Like before, position one of your characters near the barred
door at the top and position the other in front of the lever. Pull the lever
with one character then go through the door with your other character.

= East Trap Room =

Fight off the Soldier Genma then position Ohatsu on the top of the ramp and
position Soki on the yellow square where the light is shining. Shoot the shell
in the back with Ohatsu to disable the force field past the blades. Quickly
switch to Soki and run over to the blades. The blades are set to where you can
run past the last two in one run. Stay on the left side while running past
them. Wait for the first blade to move all the way into the floor on the left
side then run past it and stop. Wait for the second blade to do the same and
then run past the last two blades in one run. If you are not fast enough then
the force field will reappear. Grab the MEDICINE LV2 on the ground and operate
--MACHINE 1-- in the background. One more to go. Don't worry about the stuff
to the side, you'll have to get that when you backtrack. Return to the
Elevator Room.

= Elevator Room =

Leave Ohatsu on the ramp as you enter then defeat the Genma and stand on the
red square. Shoot the open shell with Ohatsu to get rid of the red force
field. Move to the other side and shoot those annoying Genma on the floor
below then position one of your characters next to the lever (look behind you)
and the other character next to the barred door. You know what to do.

= West Rooftop =

A pole and lever will be shown to you as you enter the area. There are some
INVENTION NOTES in the chest on the outer edge, next to the bottom door.
Switch to Ohatsu and shoot those annoying crows on your way up the left side of
the ramp leading to the pole. Grapple to the pole to swing to the top of the
roof. Lower the folding ladder for Soki then do the usual for the lever and
unbarred door. Position, pull, open door!

= West Trap Room =

Get rid of the Armored Genma first then take care of the Soldier Genma. Just
like the East Room, have Soki stand on the yellow square and have Ohatsu shoot
the shell in the background past the blades. Run over to the blades with Soki
and move to the left side like before. Wait for the first blade to go in on
the left side then run past the first two blades and stop at the third. Wait
for the third to do the same then run to the other side. Collect the MEDICINE
LV2 and operate --MACHINE 2-- then leave.

= West Rooftop =

Ninja Genma will attack this time. Go through the door below the ladder.

= Castle Entrance =

As you enter, a few Genma will spawn. Switch to Ohatsu to defeat the soldier
Genma. Position Soki on the blue square then shoot the blue open shell with
Ohatsu from the top of the ramp. This will disable the blue force field, but
don't go that way just yet. Enter through the door near the blue square.

= Elevator Room (Bottom Floor)

In here you will find some more Genma, the --TOYOTOMI CREST-- next to the door,
a LUCKY CHARM in the chest off to the right, and a puzzle box containing Soki's
VICTORY GALE sword.

Return to the Elevator Room top floor via the Castle Entrance you were just at.

= Elevator Room =

Power up Soki's Victory Gale as much as you can so you'll have a weapon as
powerful as the Oni Cutter, plus you'll be able to use Oni Magic with it - not
a bad combination. Walk up the elevator door below the rotating gears to the
side and enter the elevator.

= Walkway to Roof =

Place the Toyotomi Crest on the door in front of you and enter the door for a
cutscene.

= Rooftop of Azuchi Castle =

Boss - Munenori

This fight is very similar to the last battle and if you are using Soki's
Victory Gale it will be just as easy since Munenori will not be able to counter
you with his jumping counter. Like last time, if you do not use a 4-hit sword
then he will counter your fifth hit with his reverse jumping slash. He will
still have all the same moves from last time - the usual combo, crow attack,
slash then unblockable stab, sand attack while getting up, etc. Use Oni Magic
with your weapon to really flood him with damage. Hit him as he falls from the
Critical Slash of the Oni Magic. You can set Ohatsu to "All-out attack" and
she will help to slowly take his life down from a distance. He will not attack
her unless you are controlling her or if she is right by you.

He will have a surprise for you once his life reaches a little below the
halfway mark. He will remove his eyepatch and will gain a teleport. This does
not make him any harder than he was before except for the fact that you might
lose sight of him for about two seconds. He will usually reappear somewhere
right next to you after teleporting. If you unleash your Oni Awakening you can
make very short work of him with /\ slashes, but it's really not needed.

HIDEOUT 7

A few new items are now available at the shop. Don't forget to level up
Jubei's skills at the Enchanted Mirror.

************************** Azuchi Castle (Backtrack) **************************

The Castle part is the only area that has some extra items, so head all the way
back to the castle from where you start. Bring Jubei with you.

= Castle Entrance =

Switch to Jubei as you enter the castle and run down the hall ahead. Turn to
your right and you will see a board that Jubei can cross. Cross the board and
pick up the DRIVE MED LV2 from the piece of floor below. Go through the door
that is on the west side of the room and head to the West Trap Room from the
Rooftop outside (climb the ladder).

= West Trap Room =

Head to the back of the room with Jubei, next to the machine, and crawl under
the wreckage in the back. Enter the door on the left side and climb over the
piece of floor against the wall. Unbar the door at the end. Take control of
Soki and go back through the door that Jubei just came through. Switch to
Roberto as your partner and use him to push the block into the hole in the
floor. Switch your partner to Ohatsu and go through the door on the other side
of the block. Bomb the door off to the side with Ohatsu and enter it. Grab
the ONI OF PEACE charm from the right chest and the ROSARY OF HEALTH from the
left puzzle box on the rooftop outside. The left puzzle box blends in well
with the rooftop.

is not down, then you need to bring Ohatsu back here so she can swing across
the rooftop and let it down. Go back to the Enchanted Mirror and change your
partner to Jubei then enter the East Trap Room via the East Rooftop.

= East Trap Room =

Walk to the back, near the machine, and walk across the board with Jubei. Open

TEST OF VALOR #3 - Azuchi Castle - Rooftop of Azuchi Castle

Absorb souls within the time limit!

Souls: 2000
Time Left: 4:00

It is best to equip your worst weapon so that you will not kill the Genma
Soldiers by hitting them with an Oni Magic attack. Hit the Genma Soldiers with
Oni Magic Critical Chains. Try to work them together so that you can hit a
bunch of them at once. Don't worry too much about the Soul Absorbers. If you
manage to pull one near you then quickly change to your best weapon and defeat
him, then switch back to your worst weapon for more critical chains. Genma
Mages will start to appear in the last few minutes of this battle. If you see
them, then you have taken too long and will not be able to get a gold rank.

******************************* Western Hospital ******************************

= Entrance =

As you walk into the room ahead, a new enemy will appear. These Genma Mages
will float around the room and summon Genma Zombies while they remain alive.
Defeat the Mages as quick as possible with a Lift attack followed by constant
slashing. The Zombies are similar to normal Genma Soldiers except they take a
few hits to stagger. Grab the WESTERN HOSPITAL MAP from the small bookcase on
the left and the ULTRA MED LV2 from the seat on the right. The handle next to
the middle door cannot be used at the moment so enter the door on the right.

= Bedroom =

Collect TAKUAN'S DIARY 7 from the floor as you enter the room and the WARRIOR'S
CODE from off the drawers next to the bed. When you walk to the back of the
room a Big Genma Zombie will appear behind you. These enemies are much like
the Gacha's with their attacks - they attack slowly, but their attacks take
quite a bit off and they are nearly unstoppable. Get in the back of him and
attack or prepare to block whenever the Zombie starts to vomit. Set your
partner to "All-out Attack" then attack him yourself in order to knock him
down. In the back of the room you will find a MEDICINE LV2 and the --POWER
ROOM KEY--. Return to the Entrance and enter the other door across from you.

= Patients Room =

A POWER JEWEL is on the chair to the side of the Enchanted Mirror. Unlock the
door to the right with the Power Room Key.

Run up the stairs and push the button on the device up ahead. This will
activate the handle back at the Entrance.

A Big Genma Zombie and several smaller Zombies will teleport into the room.
Defeat the Big Zombie first then focus on the smaller ones. After the fight,
pull the handle next to the middle door to open it. Enter the elevator up
ahead.

= Surgery Corridor =

Grab the HOSPITAL REGISTER from the floor up ahead and walk down the corridor.
A Genma Mage along with a few Zombies will teleport into the area if take too
long to activate TEST OF VALOR #1 by entering the middle of the hall.

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Western Hospital - Surgery Corridor

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Dark Puppet X2
Time Left: 3:00

You can damage these enemies normally with any attack, but you must use Soki's
Sword of Purification to finish them off for the final hit or they will regain
all of their health and attack again. These enemies are extremely vicious when
there is more than one, so make sure to use a partner. Tell your partner to
defend once he or she is about to kill a Dark Puppet. Ohatsu with "Cover Fire"
or Jubei with "Distract Enemy" works well for this part. Distract Enemy is by
far the best, however, since Jubei will lead both Dark Puppets away from you.

Gold: Meteor Shower
Silver: Indigo Ring
Bronze: Red Mushrooms

Be sure to save your game at the Enchanted Mirror, then open the door at the

= Surgery =

Boss - Luis Frois

When the battle starts run up to him and attack. Set your partner to "Go All-
out" and slash away! He will teleport around the area, but if you stay right
on top him you shouldn't have any problems hitting him. If you hit him with an
H. Splitter ([] + O) as the first hit after he teleports you can knock him down
then stab him afterwards. It doesn't really take off that much more than
normal attacks but it sure is funny as hell how fast he hits the floor. The
battle seems easy doesn't it? Wrong.

When you've taken around 25% of his life he will teleport your partner up to
the second floor of this room (on the catwalks) then he will disappear and some
knives will appear. The knives will float for a few seconds upright, then
point toward you and fly at you. Deflect the knives with a sword attack and
they will fly back and hit Luis while he is invisible. He will keep
teleporting to different areas and will throw knives until you deflect a set at
him. When he appears, start attacking him as quick as you can. He will most
likely do his Sudden Death move where a transparent orange clock will appear
around you and your partner. When the clock runs all the way out, you and your
partner will die unless you have hit him enough times to cancel the move. The
catch to this part is that you will have to use both characters to hit him.
Hit him on the bottom floor until you cannot find him anymore. When he is
nowhere to be found, that means he is on the second floor so switch to your
other character (L2) and attack him while on the catwalks. You MUST stay
totally offensive when he does this Sudden Death attack or you will die. If
you have an Oni Awakening fully charged then that will save you one time if the
time runs out. Make sure to keep your partner on "Rest and Recover" while
they're on the top floor or the partner will loose health and might die from
trying to attack Luis. Both Jubei and Ohatsu work well for this battle.
Ohatsu can hit Luis while he is on the bottom floor however.

He will keep up this same pattern of hurling knives at you and countering with
a Sudden Death attack throughout the entire battle, only sometimes he will
unleash an electric sphere that will float around the area or just go back to
throwing knives around the room without the Sudden Death move. The sphere can
be blocked. Toward the end of the battle he will have about six sets of knives
around the area. You will need to watch the sets that turn toward you since he
will sometimes try to trick you by turning two sets toward you at the same time
then place one set back down and attack you with the other. He will always
laugh as he points a set at you so use that cue when looking through the sets
of knives. He will only throw one set of knives most of the time. If you ever
see more than two sets pointing at you then all of the sets are aiming at you,
and you will need to block or suffer major damage as they all collide into you.
Even if you reflect one of the sets of knives it will do nothing to Luis when
they all move toward you.

HIDEOUT 8 (Lazuline Hall)

New items are available at the shop.

the left side to find a Red Soul Altar and Ohatsu's BLACK INFERNO inside a
chest. Push the block on the right side to find an ONI JEWEL lying on a desk.

Target: Diamond
Time Left: 3:00

Soldier Genma will sit on the top floor and watch this match. Oni Magic
Critical Attack the Boxer Genma at the beginning and slash at him while he gets
up. If you try to attack him normally, he will either block your attack or
counter. If he blocks, kick him then Critical Attack him as he staggers. The
Soldiers above will jump down and attack at times. Your partner might help out
some, but using a critical attack is the key to winning this battle.

******************************* Sawayama Castle *******************************

= Outside the Castle Walls =

There's an Enchanted Mirror to the side if you need to change partners. Run
over to the right side and grab the MEDICINE LV2 off the ground. Now, switch
to Roberto and push up against the right side of the block to move it out of
the way and reveal a door. Switch your ally to Ohatsu for now, then go through
the door.

= Castle Dam =

With Ohatsu, bomb the door to the left and enter. On the other side you will
find an ANTLER in a chest. Go back to the Enchanted Mirror and switch to
Roberto.

Go back through the door and pull the lever to the side of the first bridge to
lower it. The device to the left is missing a lever and the lever next to the
bridge is too heavy for Soki to move, so use Roberto to move the lever next to
the bridge. Run across the bridge and grab the --FLOODGATE LEVER-- from the
chest off to the right. Run back across the bridge and use the Floodgate Lever
on the device on the wall in the middle strip. This will drain the water from
the dam. Keep one of your characters on the middle strip then take control of
the other and raise the bridge on the left strip via the handle so you can
collect the DRIVE JEWEL from the ditch. Lower the gate back down with the
other character. Have Soki stand on the right strip and have Roberto pull the
switch to raise the bridge on the middle strip and collect the --WATERWAY DOOR
KEY-- from the chest in the ditch. Have Roberto pull the lever again to lower
the bridge then unlock the door on the right strip.

= Castle Courtyard =

Tunneler Genma and a Don Gacha will attack as you enter this area. An archer
will be on the rooftop. Don't forget that you can stab the Tunneler Genma as
they burrow through the ground. Switch to Roberto and push the block with the
torch, closest to the door that you just came through, to reveal a door leading
to a hidden cave - push on the side closest to the castle entrance. If you
look on the ground, you can see where the block has been pushed once before;
push toward that direction.

= Hidden Cave 1 =

Defeat the Axe Man - watch for his 2 hit swing. Walk to the back of the cave
to find a puzzle box containing Robero's BRINNHILDE gauntlets.

on the right to get a GOLD NUGGET and open the puzzle box on the left to
receive the EMBOSSED MALLET.

Climb back up the stairs and enter the castle.

= Castle Entrance =

A Warrior Genma will appear as soon as you step into the castle. This can be a
very dirty fight with the range of the Door Guardian and his laser if you stand
in the path of his laser. Try to lure the Warrior Genma out of the path of the
laser and tackle him with Oni Magic to knock him down. Defeat the Door
Guardian very carefully after the Warrior has been taken care of. The doors to
the sides cannot be used anymore so enter the middle door after fighting the
Door Guardian.

= Folding Screen Room =

Save your game. The door through the hole in the wall will need a key to open
so climb the ladder in front of the hole.

= Second Floor =

Change to Roberto and have him pull the lever to lower the gate blocking the
way then grab the --EMERGENCY EXIT KEY--. Climb back down the ladder to the
Folding Screen Room and use the Emergency Exit Key on the locked door at the
bottom.

= Garden =

A few Spider Genma will teleport into the area - nothing you can't handle by
now. Climb up the ladder.

= Third Floor =

Rush to the walkway and take out the Soldier and Archer Genma. Switch to
Roberto and punch the iron door (O) next to the ladder you just climbed. Just
a little head's up, if you like to control Soki, change back to him right after
pressing the O button when punching these iron doors - Roberto will still punch
the door and you'll automatically go through.

= Vase Room =

The door in the back of this room will lead to nothing except for a few Ninja
Genma fights. Climb up the to the left ladder and enter the room up above then
switch to Roberto so you can pull the lever and lower the gate. Grab the DRIVE
MED LV2 on the other side of the gate and have Roberto punch the iron door next
to it.

= Third Floor Save Room =

The door to the left can't be open since the elevator isn't there anymore.
Save your game at the Enchanted Mirror and enter the room up the ramp.

This is where you previously fought Munenori and that damn Genma Wasp, except
this time you will face...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Sawayama Castle - Third Floor Save Room

Destroy the target within the time limit!
Time Left: 2:00

Set your partner to "Go All-out" then storm the Genma General with an Oni Magic
attack. It might be best to wait just a few seconds after he gets done with
his Summoning Magic so you can knock him down and slice through all of his
Spear Genma Reinforcements with one Oni Magic chain. Do not let up on
attacking him! Use Oni Magic only when he gets up so that you will have a
chance to slice through him. The General is built like a brick wall so you
will have to pound, pound, pound!

Gold: Time Gem
Silver: Medicine LV3
Bronze: Lizard

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

If you waited too long to activate the Test of Valor or exit and reenter the
room then you will face a Genma Mage that will summon Spear Genma. Grab the
ONI JEWEL from off the floor and climb up the ladder on the right side of the
room next to the webbing.

= Castle Balcony =

MITSUNARI'S DIARY 1 is near the railing. Notice the two paintings on the wall?
That looks like that Man in White that Soki keeps meeting depicted on the left
side doesn't it? The other painting is some sort of "Hideous Monster". What
do they mean? Anyway, examine the hole in the wall to find a shortcut to the
dungeon of Sawayama Castle.

= Secret Room =

Grab the POWER JEWEL from the desk to the side and climb down the ladder.

= Lopsided Room =

Walk up to Fireballs carefully and snatch MITSUNARI'S DIARY 2. Don't forget
that you can block the Fireballs. Carefully maneuver through them and defeat
the Archer that will spawn at the other end. Climb down yet another ladder.

= Kitchen =

You'll interrupt a meeting between three Genma Soldiers. Apparently they know
something we don't and they're not telling, so make them suffer! After walking
down the ramp, run to the end of the room next to the ramp to find a Puzzle
Box. Maybe those Soldiers knew the combination...damn! Never fear though,
Berserker is here!

You will get Soki's ENRYU sword from the puzzle box. This is one awesome
blade, especially with the attack waves that it dishes out per slash. Use it!
Onimusha vets should recognize this sword. Climb down the ladder near the end
of the ramp. A message will state that once you go down, you can't return to
the room above, so make sure you have everything that you need before climbing
down.

= Roberto's Cell =

On the floor you will find --ROBERTO'S PENDANT--. Well, now it's time to
leave, so go through the cell door up ahead.

= Front of Cell =

Some Genma Soldiers will charge down the path to the left so be ready. Save
your game at the Enchanted Mirror. Power up Enryu if you have enough souls.
Change your partner to Jubei if you want to get to an extra chest in just a
moment.

Run down the path ahead and enter the room at the end to activate TEST OF VALOR
#2.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Sawayama Castle - Front of Cell

Carry out the technique within the time limit!

Technique: Chain Critical X10
Time Left: 3:00

You should be a pro at this critical chaining by now. Be careful when dodging
the new Axeman's attack since he will do two attacks in a row instead of just
one. Just use Oni Magic on the enemies and chain together 10 hits. It will
probably take a quite a few Oni Magic attacks to do this, but an enemy will
always cough up a blue soul to refill your magic gauge. Tell your partner to
wait, then stand at one end and start the attack on one of the Genma Soldiers
then chain and repeat as they telport into the room. You don't need to be
extremely fast to get a Gold Rank on this one.

Gold: Sky Sword
Silver: Drive Med LV3
Bronze: Wildflower

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Lying in the doorway you will find --COPPER GEAR A--. Now we can lower that
bridge that we previously left in this stage (from Stage 6). A Disc Thrower
and two Spider Genma will teleport into the cave as you enter the Cave Lake
area. Defeat them and run over to the path with the narrow strip and a chest
at the end (left of the dead body). Switch to Jubei in order to cross it and
pick up a PAIR SCARF from inside of the chest. Move to the right two rooms and
place the Copper Gear on the device next to the bridge across from the doorway.
Cross the lower bridge and enter the door.

= Stone Pillar Room =

Run down the path to the right to find a Puzzle Box containing Jubei's MASUMUNE
sword.

Enter the cave directly behind your character after solving the puzzle box.

= Waterway =

Run all the way down the waterway and climb up the ladder. Move to the right
and cross the bridge then you will find an Enchanted Mirror. Switch to Roberto
so you can move the block next to the ladder you climbed just a few moments
ago. Push the block into the waterway then run back to the Enchanted Mirror
and switch to Jubei once again. Lower the stone pillar by stepping on the
glowing square with Soki, then move Jubei on top of the stone pillar and switch
to Soki then step on the switch again. At the top, grab the DRIVE JEWEL then
use Jubei's special ability (O) to move through the crack to the right. Grab
--COPPER GEAR B-- from the altar then leave. Run back to the bridge - keep
Jubei with you - and place the Copper Gear on the device to lower the bridge.
Cross over to the other side but make a turn to your left as you go across the
drawbridge. Switch to Jubei and crawl through the hole on the side of the wood
bridge (look to the left). Climb down the ladder to find a SMALL GOLD NUGGET
in each chest to the right and left. Go back the way you came - change
partners if you want - then enter the cave on the other side of the drawbridge
that you lowered a few moments ago.

= Cave Entrance =

A Menteith will appear up ahead and you must defeat him in order to get rid of
the force field guarding the path ahead. If you have Soki's Enryu powered up
and you use your partner to distract the two Ninja Genma then you will not have
any problems. Ohatsu's "Cover Fire" and Jubei's "Distract Enemy" work well for
this part. Block the shockwaves while moving toward the Menteith. When you
make it to him the first time, I would suggest using Oni Magic to knock him
down. Pound him with constant Enryu combos and you should be able to knock him
back down each time he gets up. The attack waves from Enryu really help out
for this fight. After the fight, run back and switch to Roberto, if you do not
have him with you already, then climb up the ladder to the side and go through
the door at the top. Tunneler Genma will teleport into the Cave Entrance so
either fight or run.

= Stone Pillar Room 2 =

Switch to Roberto and have him push the block to the left off the side. Now
have Roberto get on the stone pillar to the right and have Soki step on the
glowing square to take Roberto down a floor. Push the block into the waterway
below and cross the block then climb the ladder to enter the cave above. This
is that chest that you could always see from the Cave Entrance, but could never
get to. Open the chest to find a FRIENDSHIP SCARF. Go back to the Cave
Entrance.

= Cave Entrance =

Run all the way up ahead and a cutscene will play that will take you out of the
cave.

= Fox Gate =

Grab the SECRET MED LV2 from off to the right. Be sure to choose one of your
favorite allies at the Enchanted Mirror since you have boss fight coming up. I
would recommend Ohatsu because of her long range.

Boss - Genma Bug

Didn't we just own this boss earlier...? Anyway, now you have to fight the
same Genma Bug from earlier once again. He has the same exact pattern and has
the same tough armor that you will have to pound away on. One good thing about
this battle is that you will actually be able to change to your partner unlike
the last battle with this bug. If you have Ohatsu you will not have any
problems whatsoever since she can basically hit him anytime she wants to if you
have a long range rifle equipped. Keep Ohatsu and Soki together but have them
in a doorway. Shoot with Ohatsu while he attacks and then switch to Soki then
tell Ohatsu to "Go All-out" whenever he stops moving his razors or sinks his
razor sphere into the ground. Attack him with Soki's Enryu while he is stunned
and Ohatsu will be blasting him from a safe distance. Instead of that, you
could also stay in control of Ohatsu and tell Soki to "Go All-out" while you
fire from a safe distance. Whichever way make sure that Soki backs off after a
while to keep the boss from hitting him. The battle will still take a while
but with Ohatsu's long range it will be very easy. Make sure to keep both
characters set to "Wait and Recover" and only switch Ohatsu or Soki to "Go All-
out" when the bug is stunned. Also, keep both characters in a doorway when the
boss is not stunned.

******************************** Sakai Facility *******************************

= Research Facility Entrance =

The group will use Roberto's Pendant, collected from the last stage, to gain
entry to the Research Facility. You'll automatically start with Roberto as a
partner. Rush ahead and grab the SAKAI FACILITY MAP. A Warrior Genma will
teleport into the room. Try to lead him away from the Armored Genma in the
back, unless you want to deal with all three at the same time. Lure him down
the ramp by guarding his attacks then get in the back of him and knock him back
toward the entrance. Put Roberto on "Berserk" if needed. Now defeat the two
Armored Genma, which shouldn't be much of a problem by themselves. Enter the
door after the battle.

= Research Lab =

Save your game on the left side if needed. Grab the SAKAI C. TOWER file from
the floor in front of the next door. For this area ahead, you will need to
find four control devices in each of the rooms and destroy them in order to
access the elevator to the right in the Research Lab. Take Roberto with you.
Go through the door in front of you.

= Main Lift Room =

Look around at the doors and notice how they all have four colored dots above
each of the doors. For this area and the areas ahead, I will always have the
color of the circles above the door in parentheses to help make it easier on
the reader. Please note that the lever on the lift is to be used to swing the
lift around once you go up, the switch will take you up. Remember that the
door you just came from with the save point has a red circle above it. The
door (blue) across from you is locked for the moment so go ahead and position
both characters on the lift then push the switch. Switch to Roberto and have
him punch the door ahead so you can get through.

= Control Device (Red) Room =

Defeat the Spear Genma and the Soldier Genma that spawn afterwards and destroy
--CONTROL DEVICE (RED)-- (rotating gears) with normal attacks. Grab the
MAGICIAN'S RING from the chest behind the control device. Climb up the ladder
next to the door you just came through and walk to the end of the walkway to
find a puzzle box containing a PHOENIX RING. A Soldier and Archer Genma will
teleport onto the walkway behind you.

The door at the front of the walkway has nothing and the ladder that goes to

pull the lever on the lift to swing across to the next door.

= Control Device (Blue) Room =

Climb the ladder to the side and grab the WARRIOR'S CODE and --GREEN CREST--
from the sides of the walkway. An Axeman will appear after you retrieve the
Green Crest. Nothing else to do but exit. Ninja Genma will ambush you as you
try to leave. Run back outside and pull the lever to go to the next room.
Punch the door with Roberto to gain access.

= Control Device (GREEN) Room =

TAKUAN'S DIARY 8 is lying to the right. Fight off the Armored Genma in the
back and destroy --CONTROL DEVICE (GREEN)-- behind them. Two Ninja Genma will
appear after the Armored Genma have been disposed of. Check behind the Control
Device to find a puzzle box containing Roberto's CLASS ZERO GLOVES.

Climb down the ladder across from the door that you used to enter this area
then place the Green Crest on the door at the bottom. Go through the door to
find the --PURPLE CREST-- then exit and go back to the lift. Spider Genma will
attack on the way back. Pull the lever on the lift and then press the switch
to go back down. The door (Red) to the right will lead you back to the
Enchanted Mirror in the Research Lab. Enter the door (Green) to the left.

= Green Room =

A Mushroom Genma will teleport into the area below but ignore him for now.
Enter the room next to the Yellow Enchanted Mirror then go up the ladder.
Ninja Genma will attack as you enter the next room so be ready. Climb up the
next ladder and go through the door to find a Red Soul Altar. Go back to the
room with the Yellow Enchanted Mirror. Several Genma will teleport into the
room next to the one you're going to. Switch your partner to Ohatsu at the
Yellow Enchanted Mirror and use her to shoot at the Genma Mushroom from above
or just take it down with Soki's Enryu. Let both of the folding ladders on the
sides down. Use Ohatsu to grapple to the other side to let down the second
one. Climb back up the middle ladder (in front of the Green Crest Door).

= Control Device (Green) Room =

Go up the ladder to the left and enter the door. You will find a MEDICINE LV3
in the chest. Exit the room and use Ohatsu to grapple to the other side of the
walkway in front of you. The chest on the other side contains INVENTION NOTES.
Go back down the ladders and get back to the room with the folding ladders and
Mushroom Genma.

= Green Room =

Go ahead and switch your partner to Roberto. Climb up the right folding ladder
and climb up the ladder to the right on the other side.

= Control Device (Yellow) Room =

Two Invisible Genma will attack. Destroy --CONTROL DEVICE (YELLOW)-- then
check behind the device to find another puzzle box containing Ohatsu's CRAG
gun.

Climb back down the ladder and switch to Roberto so you can punch the iron door
in front of you.

= Main Lift Room =

You still can't open that blue door yet. Position both character on the lift
and press the switch to make it go up. Don't enter the first door. Pull the
switch one time so it will move to the left. Use Roberto once again to punch
through the iron door. Go down the ladder in the room ahead and collect the
POWER JEWEL from the floor and use the Purple Crest you got from earlier on the
Purple Crest door. Rush straight ahead and grab the --CONTROL DOOR KEY--. Oh,
great, now we have to get back to that locked blue door. Go back to the lift.
A Don Gacha and two Disc Throwers will ambush you on the way back. Pull the
lever to move the lift to the left then press the switch on the wall. Enter
the door (Green) to the left.

= Green Room =

Climb down the folding ladder and climb up the next ladder then punch the door
on the other side with Roberto. That Mushroom Genma in the middle will spawn
every time you enter this room unfortunately. Use the Control Door Key on the
door (Blue) to the right as you exit through the iron door. Climb the ladder
and then destroy --CONTROL DEVICE (BLUE)--. You should receive a message on
the screen telling you that all of the machines (Control Devices) have been
destroyed and the elevator in the Research Lab is working. Grab the FRIENSHIP
SCARF in the chest behind the Control Device before exiting the room. On the
way back a Genma Warrior and two Armored Genma will attack. Return to the room
with the Mushroom Genma and climb up and down the folding ladders and open the
door on the other side. Enter the door (Red) on the side to get back to the
Research Lab.

= Research Lab =

Finally! Save your game and switch to Ohatsu, then open the elevator door
across from the Enchanted Mirror. Once again, make sure to take Ohatsu with
you if you want some extra items!

= Room to Experiments =

As you enter, walk forward and Test of Valor #1 will begin.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Sakia Facility - Room to Experiments

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Genma General X6
Time Limit: 2:00

Enryu is your friend here because of its attack waves. Rush to one side and
use Oni Magic on the General on that side AFTER he summons the Genma Soldiers.
This will net you a good soul increase every time and will charge your magic
gauge as it gets lower. You will have to use constant Oni Magic attacks in
order to get a gold here. Slash away at the Genma Generals while they recover
from each magic attack. The Genma Generals will always appear two at a time on
each side of the room.

Gold: Ortlinde
Silver: Oni Med LV3
Bronze: Red Mushrooms

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

When the chaos dies down from the Test of Valor, switch to Ohatsu and grapple
across the hole to the Yellow Soul Altar and then to the items on the other
side. You will find an ANTLER on the left side and a DRIVE MED LV3 on the
right side. When you drain the souls from the Yellow Soul Altar, try to barely
tap the absorb button with Ohatsu then quickly switch back to Soki to drain a
yellow soul if he needs it.

= Experiment Room =

Several various Genma are waiting for you here. Travel up one of the sides and
defeat the Archer on the bridge first, then go after the rest. Open the door
on the other side of the room.

= Experiment Room 2 =

Run up either side and defeat the Mushroom Genma to get rid of the Invisible
Genma. On the other side of the room a Door Guardian is attached to the door
you need to open. Use Enryu with Soki or stand back and shoot with Ohatsu to
get rid of him. Be extra careful of his laser! Grab the DRIVE JEWEL on the
floor in front of the exit when finished.

= Experiment Room 3 =

A Boxer Genma will be up ahead. These Genma are extremely agile so it can be
hard to hit them with normal combos because of there constant dodging. Hit him
with an Oni Magic attack if he keeps dodging then hit him while he recovers.
If you're running low on magic, block his attacks and wait for him to guard,
then nail him with a kick followed by a critical attack - he will always guard
eventually. Grab the GEM OF BRAVERY from the chest and go up one of the sides.
An Armored Genma will be waiting on each side. On the other side of the room
another Boxer Genma will appear. The chest next to him contains a BLESSED ONI
EYE. Enter the door next to you.

= Control Room Stairway =

There is an ONI JEWEL to your left. Climb down each staircase and you will
fight an assortment of Soldier Genma on your way down. A MEDICINE LV2 will be
near the bottom along with an Enchanted Mirror. Ohatsu will assist you greatly
for the battle ahead especially if you have a well-powered Guardian Rifle.
Roberto cannot be used for the upcoming battle for reasons that the upcoming
cutscenes will explain. Open the door at the end of the stairway for a
cutscene.

Boss - Mitsunari

Mitsunari will start the battle by spewing dark essence in a row in front of
him. He will do this throughout the battle. The dark essence will be spread
either in a row vertically or horizontally or he will spread the dark essence
in a circle around you. As he spreads it throughout the area, absorb the dark
essence with your gauntlet when you get next to it just as you would absorb
souls. Move out of its path whenever he spreads it in a row, but you can stand
still when he spreads it in a circle - be sure to absorb it afterward however.
If the dark essence touches you then you will be poisoned for a few seconds.
Use an Antidote to cure the poison state or switch to another character. He
will mix the dark essence spewing with a centipede arm attack where he will
grab you, take quite a bit of damage, and stun you for a moment. Make sure to
watch for his left arm to glow before the attack starts then block the
centipede arm. Try to drain as much dark essence as you can from the field
since he will have two other moves involving the available essence. For one,
he will move to one side of the room then recite a one-liner as dark essence
appears around him, he will release the essence toward you as well as any other
essence you have not absorbed on the field. If you are close enough to him
when he starts this move you can drain all the essence that appears around him
then attack him while tries to shoot it at you. For his other attack involving
the essence, he will move to the back and absorb the remaining essence on the
field, which will refill his life gauge. He can be knocked out of this attack,
but it doesn't work all the time. I knocked him out of it one time with
Ohatsu's lift attack. Make sure to keep the essence VERY low when he nears his
last 25% of life or he will regain nearly half his life if you don't stop him.

His only other attack is a fan attack in which he will throw his fan and
teleport away as the fan spins throughout the area - just block the fan. It is
a good idea to use both characters for this fight. Have one character "Wait
and Recover" while you attack with the other. You can actually use your
partner as bait for when he starts the centipede arm attack by attacking him as
your partner blocks the centipede arm. Use Soki's Enryu (mainly for the attack
waves) and use Ohatsu's Guardian to slowly drain at his life bar. Your best
bet for attacking him with Soki is right after his centipede arm or after he
summons the essence around him then shoots it at you (drain it before he shoots
then attack). Another good opening that doesn't appear as often is directly
after his fan attack. With Ohatsu, you can run and fire at just about any time
to attack him if you switch to her. If you want the battle to end very
quickly, use Soki's Oni Awakening and attack him with constant /\ attacks.
This battle will take a little while to get used to, but once you have learned
Mitsunari's attacks you will mainly only have to look out for his constant
spewing of dark essence. Keep him targeted at all times and always step out of
the way when you see the essence falling.

HIDEOUT 10 - Lazuline Hall

Some new items are available in the shop. If you haven't been doing so already
then be sure to level up in the Dark Realm since the next stage starts some of
the more unfriendly stages of the game. The normal enemies for the next few
stages are basically all elite enemies and will take you down in seconds if
given the chance. Actually I'd make a backup save at this checkpoint if I were
you.

*************************** Sakai Facility (Backtrack) ************************

There is only one reason to backtrack to this area and that is found in the
third Experiment Room (down the elevator). Make sure to save your game before
attempting this Test of Valor.

= Experiment Room 3 =

Walk to the back of the room to start Test of Valor #2.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Sakia Facility - Experiment Room

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Genma General
Time Left: 3:00

There is only one Genma General to defeat. Simple enough eh? No, no it isn't.
This general is built like a brick wall and has one unblockable move that will
take half of your life if you allow it to hit you. When you see him raise his
sword behind his back, back off! He will jump into the air and slam the ground
with his sword, creating a vortex of darkness that will take off over half your
life if you step in it. Unfortunately, the dark vortex will stay on the ground
for quite a while and he will be able to attack you while it remains. If the
dark vortex catches you, be sure to block his attacks since the vortex will
keep you contained inside. To make matters even worse he will summon Elite
Ninja Genma the entire time.

You are going to have to have a VERY powerful weapon mixed with tons and tons
of equipment to boost your attack to get a Gold Rank on this one. Equip your
most powerful character with a Fudo Horn, Horn of Susano, Commander's Ring, and
a Wolf Ring (have him in critical condition). Have your partner set to "Go
All-out" at the beginning and try to stay on top of the Genma General and wait
until he summons his Ninja Genma followers. Hit him the whole time he summons
them and after he summons the Ninja Genma, right before they attack you, use an
Oni Magic Critical Attack and slice through the Genma General and all three
Ninja Genma. While the Genma General is down, switch to your most powerful
character while having your partner "Go All-out" and slash away! You must beat
him within thirty seconds to get a gold ranking. When there is still a Ninja
Genma left on the screen while the Genma General is standing, he will not
summon any more - this is when he may do his vortex attack.

I used Tenkai with a maxed level Fudo spear mixed with the above equipment to
boost his attack in order to get a gold ranking.

Here is another method that I received via email:

"I simply equipped Jubei with the best weapon and attack increasing items that
I had, then had her use her Oni Awakening as soon as the test began. I kept
locked on to the Genma General, and simply used normal attacks to defeat him.
I did have to use two Drive Med LV 1 to keep my my Oni Awakening activated, but
the Slo-Motion effect slowed down the timer, too, so I had no problem
completing in less than 30 seconds."

Disc Thrower and an Axeman will appear on the boats. Two Soul Absorber Genma
will appear near the exit gate. Be careful when you go to pull them in with
your gauntlet since these will attack as they get closer to you. Watch for
them to perform a sudden rush while pulling them in then block. Check near the

In order to open the gate, you need to find the three pictures from the
warehouses and arrange the number of animals represented on each picture in
order from largest to smallest to get the code. Check the diagram above to
find where the paintings are.

Hmmm, let's see.

6 butterflies, 3 bears, and 2 elephants

** The correct code is 6 - 3 - 2 **

From what I understand, this code is random much like the second code for the
second set of buildings below, but all you have to do for this first one is
find all three paintings and place them in order from largest to smallest as
show above. Simple.

= Above the Harbor =

Notice the two levers off to the side of the drawbridge? Position your partner
next to one, then pull the other with Soki to lower it. You need the
Lubricating Oil from Building 8 in the last area as well. When you reach the
middle of the bridge, Machine Gunner Genma will appear on each side. Use your
Oni Magic to slice through the one ahead of you before he has the chance to
shoot. All of their attacks can be blocked, but they attack quite frequently
and can get very aggressive so always deal with them first in a crowd. Slash
them as they try to get up from a magic attack then attack them again with
Magic if needed. Enter the building in front of the exit gate to find a Red
Soul Altar along with the UNLOCKING MEMO B file. Walk toward the Enchanted
Mirror once you exit the building to find another puzzle box containing Jubei's
ICE BLADE.

Spider Genma will jump down from the roof of the buildings as you enter.
Defeat them quickly while dodging the cannon shots from the Cannon Genma in the
very back. The Cannon Genma will most likely awaken some of the Armored Genma.
Rush down the path and take out the Cannon Genma first then work on the Armored
Genma. As long as you don't bother the Armored Genma they will not bother you.
They will reappear every time you exit a building. Grab the POWER JEWEL off
the barrel to the side of the Enchanted Mirror then explore the buildings.
Take a look at the Unlocking Memo B file from earlier to figure out how to get
the code for the exit gate. By the way, set your partner to "Wait and Recover"
unless you want to deal with Armored Genma each time after exiting a building.

Building V = [bomb with Ohatsu] INVENTION NOTES and Painting (3 Bears)
Building VI = [punch with Roberto] DRIVE JEWEL and Painting (1 Whale)

Please note this code is totally random and you will have a 99% chance of
getting a different code then what I have.

[Step 1]

You will need to arrange the numbers from the paintings in each of the
warehouses, along with there respective warehouse number, in order from
smallest to largest based on the painting number.

VI-1, II-2, V-3, IV-4, III=5, I-6

[Step 2]

Then you will need to take the numbers from the paintings out of the list. The
first three remaining numbers from the warehouses will be the correct code
combination for the exit gate.

-----------
| VI, II, V | IV, III, I
-----------

** So the correct code is 6 - 2 - 5 **

Please, feel free to print this out and fill out your setup:

Building I = ___ _____________
Building II = ___ _____________
Building III = ___ _____________
Building IV = ___ _____________
Building V = ___ _____________
Building VI = ___ _____________

If you just figured out the code and you want to get on with the rest of the
walkthrough then hit Ctrl+F and type in the statement "I did it Berserker!" to
read the next section; if not then read below.

Alright, if you still do not understand the above explanation then look at this
SUPER descriptive method below. I have used a new painting setup for this
description so the code will be different.

(look back at my diagram to figure out which building is which)

[Step 1]

Write down your building and painting setup as shown below:

My setup: Your setup:

Building I = 4 Wolves Building I = ___ _____________
Building II = 1 Whale Building II = ___ _____________
Building III = 2 Elephants Building III = ___ _____________
Building IV = 5 Birds Building IV = ___ _____________
Building V = 6 Butterflies Building V = ___ _____________
Building VI = 3 Bears Building VI = ___ _____________

[Step 2]

Arrange the setup so that the paintings are in order from least to greatest
with their respective building numbers as shown below:

My setup: Your setup:

Building II = 1 Whale Building ___ = ___ _____________
Building III = 2 Elephants Building ___ = ___ _____________
Building VI = 3 Bears Building ___ = ___ _____________
Building I = 4 Wolves Building ___ = ___ _____________
Building IV = 5 Birds Building ___ = ___ _____________
Building V = 6 Butterflies Building ___ = ___ _____________

[Step 3]

Take the paintings out of the setup completely so that only the building
numbers remain:

My setup: Your setup

Building II = Building ___ =
Building III = Building ___ =
Building VI = Building ___ =
Building I = Building ___ =
Building IV = Building ___ =
Building V = Building ___ =

[Step 4]

Remove the last three building numbers and the three remaining building numbers
will be your code.

My code: Your code:

Building II Building ___
Building III Building ___
Building VI Building ___

My code is ** 2 - 3 - 6 ** Your code is ** ___ - ___ - ___ **

Basically you just take the first three building numbers from the setup after
you have put them in order from least to greatest based on the painting numbers
and that is your code.

If you still didn't figure out, then email me at berseker_kev@yahoo.com with
your building and painting setup and I will solve it for you. I don't mind
solving it for you at all and will not get mad at you for emailing me, BUT if
you dare to email me asking for the code without any kind of setup whatsoever
then there is no hope for you and you have saddened me greatly in more ways
than one - the Berserker face at the bottom of this guide also grits its teeth
at you.

[I did it Berserker!]

= On the Docks =

Defeat the Axeman Genma then use the Enchanted Mirror to the side to change
your partner to Ohatsu. The door up ahead is locked from the other side.
Switch to Ohatsu and walk to the middle of the dock then use her special
ability (O) to grapple on the pole and swing to the other side. Take care of
the Spear Genma that appears then unlock the door for Soki. Switch your
partner to Roberto at the Enchanted Mirror. Soldiers will appear on Soki's
side and Archers will appear as you go through the door. Open the chest to the
left for a MEDICINE LV3 and the puzzle box to the right for a ROSARY OF HEALTH.

Punch the iron door of the building off to the side to find the --DOCK KEY--
inside. Run back outside and be sure to save your game at the Enchanted Mirror
behind the doors. Let me repeat that, SAVE YOUR GAME ONCE AGAIN at the
Enchanted Mirror! Let your health fully recover with Soki while the Rosary of
Health is equipped. Alright, now use the Dock Key on the door.

= Dock =

A cutscene will start as you walk to the dock. It doesn't matter what partner
you have for this next battle since you will have to fight the boss with Soki
alone.

Boss - Sakon

Remember how you could literally mop the floor with Sakon on that past battle
because of all the space in the area? Well, this time you have VERY little
space to move around in making the battle much harder. The battle has not
changed a bit from last time except for the fact that he will be stunned
randomly at times as if he is fighting off the mind control that he is under.
That will be your cue to attack him with whatever you have available to you.

Here is the way that I do this battle, and it will work with whatever sword you
have equipped as long as it has a critical magic attack (not freeze). You
might want to equip a Contentment Charm to decrease the charge of the Sword of
Purification. Use the Stab move (Forward + R2) to throw your purifying sword
at Sakon from about mid-distance after (ONLY after) he has charged his flame
shield. If the sword hits him three times, rush directly behind the sword and
hit him with an Oni Magic critical attack to take off quite a bit of damage.
Hit him as he recovers with either Enryu or Raizan, whichever of your choosing.
Now move away from as he readies his fire shield. While he moves toward you
with swipes from his spear your purifying sword should charge back up.
Immediately throw the purifying sword from a safe distance when it charges and,
if it hits him three times, start the above steps once again.

If the purifying sword does not hit him three times you will have to back off
as far as you can and hopefully avoid or block his strikes (last strike only).
Get behind him like the battle before and hit him. This battle has a certain
degree of luck involved with it since the purifying sword will sometimes only
hit once or twice. The sword will usually hit him three times if you stand
mid-distance from him. Only by hitting him three times will you stun him
enough to perform an Oni Magic attack. If he manages to hit you with one of
his spear attack then you will probably be swamped by the rest of his attacks
and his fire. Recovering with the X button will sometimes save you and give
you a half second of invincibility while getting off the ground but it doesn't
help that much because of his flame shield. If he traps you in a corner, you
are basically done for, unless he knocks you out. As usual, Soki's Oni
Awakening will help you out greatly at this part if you use /\ attacks, but it
is possible to beat him without it. The battle is not hard if you know how to
approach it by using the right attacks, but if not, then he will slap you silly
with his highly damaging spear attacks while you lie on the ground helpless.

HIDEOUT 11 (San Felipe)

Ah, the gangs all back together, but we can't cue the Grease song just yet!
I'm sure you know this by now, but some new items are now available at the shop
as usual. Step into the ship's cabin to begin the next stage. Level up Tenkai
a bit since he should be incredibly low in level (weaponwise) compared to the
rest of the party. Make sure to boost his skills in the skill menu.

like a normal Menteith, he is very slow. Use Oni Magic at the very beginning
to knock him and his Genma Disc Thrower companions down, then slash at him
while he is down. If you want any easy gold ranking, then you should equip

chain. Equip the Dragon Offer then use Oni Magic and chain your attacks to
slice through multiple zombies. Only chain two hits per Oni Magic chain and

and use Oni Magic to chop right through him. Attack him while he is down or,
if a zombie gets close enough, use Oni Magic on the Zombie and use him to chain

Boss - Ophelia

Now the true battle begins. Much like the Mitsunari battle from earlier you
will have to absorb Ophelia's dark essence, only this time you must absorb it
in order to hit her. The dark essence will float around her and will poison
you if you manage to touch it. She will attack and summon Ninja Genma with her
dark essence the whole time that you try to absorb her dark essence. Make sure
to watch out for her flying kick. She will stab both insect arms into the
ground right next to you then fly toward you while you absorb her dark essence.
It's blockable, but it will cause you to stagger so I would recommend dodging
it by stepping to the side since it's pretty easy to see coming, then go back
to absorbing her dark essence. After you absorb all of her dark essence, she
will be stunned, but don't hit her just yet - strike down the remaining Ninja
Genma quickly then hit Ophelia. Use the Ninja Genma to chain an Oni Magic
attack on Ophelia if you are next to her while fighting them off.

Eventually she will recover and this is where the most dangerous part starts.
She will run around the area and attack you with combos. The beginnings of her
combos are blockable, but she will add a move into the combo that will break
your guard so that the final attack will hit you. Make sure to keep pressing
either to the right or left while blocking one of her combos so that you can
sidestep the breaking hit. It is best to keep stepping to the side throughout
this phase because of her unpredictable attacks. Attack her from behind while
she finishes the combo. I usually set my partner to "Go All-out" during this
phase. You can also set you partner to "Wait and Recover" then sit back and
use your partner to bait Ophelia into attacking, then attack her. When she
laughs, that is a warning that she is about to summon dark essence again, so
get ready to absorb! This will be a long fight and a dangerous fight at that,
because she is quite damaging, but if you learn her attacks you should come out
victorious. Be sure to switch between your characters if one gets low in life.
As usual, Oni Awakening will totally own her so use it if all else fails.
Soki's Oni Awakening will absorb her dark essence for you when she summons it
and will allow you to hit her even while she has dark essence around her.

HIDEOUT 12 - Higo Outpost

Some new items are available in the shop. If Jubei is at a low level, go ahead
and start to level her up now so you won't go through some hardships on Stage
16 and the stage after that. If you want the boss battle of the next stage to
be a breeze then go ahead and level up Soki's H. Splitter skill to max. The
next stage is similar to Stage 13 in that you will use all of your characters
for something eventually. Head to the stairs on the side when you're ready to
depart.

************************* Abandoned Village (Backtrack) ***********************

Return to the area where you fought Ophelia for Test of Valor #3.

= Side of the Cave =

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #3 - Abandoned Village - Side of the Cave

Protect the target!

Time Left: 1:30

Our friends from earlier are in trouble again, and it's up to you to save them.
This test of valor is much easier than the last one where the two soldiers were
in trouble. Only normal zombies will appear throughout this battle and they
will usually only appear three at a time. Use Oni Magic Critical Chains to
slice through a bunch of them in one slice. Protect the two soldiers as much
as you can and this one should be an easy gold rank for you.

Gold: Ice Lord
Silver: Crimson Ring
Bronze: Red Mushrooms

****************************** Shimabara Facility *****************************

= Courtyard =

A little too quiet isn't it? Rush and grab the SECRET MED LV2 from off the
floor in the middle and the two MEDICINE LV1's from the two chests off to the
side. When you make it to the front door a Genma General and two Genma Mages
will teleport into the area setting the stage for Test of Valor #1.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Courtyard - Shimabara Facility

This is a tough one, mainly because of the Genma Mages with the General. Equip
Enryu, preferably at max level, and rush straight ahead then use Oni Magic on
the General to knock him down. Pound away as much as you can on the General.
If you see the Magic Seals from the Mages start to form around you then try to
run to the side or use Oni Magic right when they begin to close to avoid
damage. If a magic seal catches your main character then switch to the other
character. You're main enemy will most likely be damage for this battle.

Gold: Raphael's Gauntlets
Silver: Secret Med LV3
Bronze: Salamander

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Open the big gate after the Test of Valor.

= Entrance =

The chest to the right contains a BISHOP RING. Rush straight ahead and fight
through the Soldiers then push the Machine Gunner Genma down the ramp so as not
to awaken the Armored Genma in the back. Defeat the Armored Genma after the
Machine Gunner then grab the ROOK RING from the chest to the side and exit the
area. These new Armored Genma have a three hit combo that is very slow and
very damaging. The final hit will break your defense. They have some
incredibly tough armor as well so you may want your partner to help out.

= Research Lab =

MITSUNARI'S DIARY 3 is next to the elevator entrance, which is out of order for
the time being, and the SHIMABARA FACILITY MAP is next to the Enchanted Mirror.
Just like the last research facility, you will have to destroy some Control
Devices to activate the elevator. Open the door up ahead to find the path to
the main lift room.

= Path to Lift Room =

This room can be quite hard with the Boxer Genma matched up with the constant
barrage of shockwaves from the Menteith in the back. Use Oni Magic to take out
the Soldiers and try to knock the Boxer down. Leave your partner in the back
under a "Wait and Recover" command and the Boxer should try to attack him.
Rush toward the side of the Menteith and slash away. It's going to take a
while to defeat him, but at least you want have to worry about the Boxer if he
attacks your partner. Watch out for the Menteith's attack when it covers its
body since it will be preparing a guard-breaking hit. After the Menteith is
defeated, the force field blocking the path ahead will disappear. Grab the
SHIMIBARA C. TOWER file from the floor and head into the lift room.

= Main Lift Room =

The elevator is not working at the moment so go through the door (Green) to the
side.

= Green Room =

Switch to Ohatsu at the Enchanted Mirror. Walk over to the area on the left
and an Invisible Genma will appear on your side and a Disc Thrower will appear
on the other. Defeat them both and let the folding ladder down then stand to
either side of the folding ladder and swing to the other side with Ohatsu.
Switch to Roberto after lowering the ladder with Ohatsu then make your way to
the other side while using Roberto and punch the door. Enter the door (Blue)
to the side.

= Blue Room =

A few Soldier Genma will attack in here. Grab the --1F ELECTRIC PLUG-- and the
--RED CREST-- from near the controls then leave the room. Punch through the
iron door once again.

= Green Room =

Switch to Tenkai at the Enchanted Mirror then place the Red Crest on the middle
door at the bottom of the folding ladders to unlock it. Switch to Tenkai on
the other side of the door and talk to the dead body to receive the --BLUE
CREST--. Go back through the door and enter the door to the left of the
Enchanted Mirror.

= Lift Control Room =

An Invisible Genma will appear. Place the 1F Electric Plug on the control
device to the side to activate the lift outside. Take the 1ST FLOOR DEVICE
file from the floor and the COMMANDER'S RING from the chest. Go back through
the door and switch your partner to Ohatsu then enter the Main Lift Room.
Position both characters on the lift and press the button on the wall. Enter
the first door that the lift stops at.

= Puzzle Box Room =

Defeat the Disc Thrower and climb the ladder to the left. Switch to Ohatsu and
grapple over the broken part of the walkway. A puzzle box containing Ohatsu's
MOON GAZE will be on the other side.

= Control Device (Green) Room =

Go through the door at the end of the walkway to find a S. DRIVE MED LV2 lying
on the floor. Go back through the door and climb down the ladder. The control
unit to the side cannot be used just yet, but we'll come back to it later.
Grab the 2nd FLOOR DEVICE file from the floor and destroy
--CONTROL DEVICE (GREEN)-- in the back of the room. Check behind the control
device to find a chest containing a BROTHERLY SCARF. Go back to the main lift
room.

= Main Lift Room =

Pull the lever. We will need Roberto for the first door that you move to so
press the lever again. Enter the second door you come to.

= Control Device Room (Yellow) =

A few Soldier Genma will teleport into the room. Head to the right and destroy
--CONTROL DEVICE (YELLOW). Climb down the ladder after destroying it.

= Soul Altar Room =

Drain the Red Soul Altar and fight off the various Genma that teleport into the
room. Grab the --2F ELECTRIC PLUG-- from the control unit then unbar the door
to the side. Go all the way back to the Lift Room, pull the lever a total of
two times then enter the door you come to. Climb the ladder inside then enter
the door on the walkway.

= Control Device Room (Green) =

Run to the end of the walkway then go down the ladder. Place the 2F Electric
Plug in the control unit. Now you can return to the bottom floor! Return to
the lift room.

= Main Lift Room =

Pull the lever three times then press the button to return to the bottom floor.
Enter the door (Green) to the side. Change your partner to Roberto then get
back on the lift, press the button, then pull the lever twice. Punch the door
you come to with Roberto.

Switch to Tenkai at the Enchanted Mirror, then go down the ladder. An
Invisible Genma will be waiting at the bottom. Place the Blue Crest on the
door to unlock it. Talk to the dead body with Tenkai and it will give him the
BACKUP POWER KEY. Go back the way you the came and climb the ladder to reach
the walkway overhead. Open the door at the top then run all the way to the end
of the walkway to find a DRIVE JEWEL. Switch back to Roberto as your partner
then reenter the Main Lift Room.

= Main Lift Room =

Pull the lever twice then press the switch to return to the bottom floor.
Switch to Roberto and have him punch the iron door to the side. Get to the
Enchanted Mirror on the other side of the folding ladder and switch your
partner to Jubei. Unlock the door on the side across from the Enchanted Mirror
using the Backup Power Key. Climb up the ladder to your right upon entering
the next room.

= Control Device (Yellow) Room =

Crawl through the hole off to the left with Jubei and destroy --CONTROL DEVICE
(BLUE)--. You should receive a message on the screen telling you that all of
the machines (Control Devices) have been destroyed and the elevator in the
Research Lab is working. Check behind the control device for a puzzle box
containing a WAR CHARM.

Go back to the Research Lab. Head down the ladder, make a right, a left, then
enter the door (Red) across from you. Walk to the end of the path.

= Research Lab =

For god sakes, save your game! Now enter the elevator across from the
Enchanted Mirror.

= Wooden Floor Room =

As you walk into the room, Soldier Genma will attack. Walk forward some more
and a Don Gacha will appear then Test of Valor #2 will start right afterwards.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Shimabara Facility - Wooden Floor Room

Absorb souls within the time limit!

Souls: 3,000
Time Left: 5:00

The quicker you get rid of the Soul Absorber Genma that appears midway into
this battle, the quicker you will win this Test of Valor. Use Oni Magic to
knock the Don Gacha down then uppercut the Genma Mage to knock him out of the
air. Try to get rid of the Genma Mage first then use Oni Magic on the Don
Gacha again to defeat him. Use Oni Magic to chain a critical through all the
Genma Soldiers that appear then start to absorb their souls and keep absorbing
afterward and you should start to pull in a Soul Absorber Genma. Once you take
out that Soul Absorber Genma then you will have no problems collecting the rest
of the souls and that gold rank should be yours. While pulling him in make
sure to block his attack as he rushes you, then attack him from the back.

Gold: Wolf Fang
Silver: Secret Med LV3
Bronze: Wildflower

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Collect Soki's HABAKIRI sword from the chest after the battle then go through
the next door.

= Cherry Tree Room 1 =

As you enter the room an Invisible Genma will appear. The fireballs will hit
the Invisible Genma if you use your absorption to make him appear. You need to
move along the sides of the room and avoid the Fireballs or block them as they
go by. On the left side is a chest containing a POWER JEWEL. On the right
side, you will find an ONI JEWEL in a chest. Go through the door across from
you.

= Cherry Tree Room 2 =

You need to do the same thing for this room - run by the fireballs. Other than
the Fireballs, there are no enemies in this room. There are two ANTIDOTES in
the chests on the left and a WARRIOR'S CODE and another ANTIDOTE in the chests
on the right.

= Cherry Tree Room 3 =

A Boxer Genma will teleport into the room on your side and a Gacha will
teleport to the other side. The Gacha will not step out into the fireballs
like the Invisible Genma did earlier so you must go to him. A RARE ANTLER is
in the chest on the left side and be sure to grab LUIS FROIS' DIARY from the
second bridge on the left side.

= Control Room Stairway =

Plenty of Genma will be waiting down the stairs for you. Most of them are
Soldier Genma, but a few Dark Puppets will appear as well. Be sure to grab
Jubei's SHISHIO blade from the chest off to the left at the first turn. Save
your game at the Enchanted Mirror at the bottom. Charge up Soki's Habakiri as
much as you can and use any extra skill points to level up H. Splitter. Take
Ohatsu with you (charge up her Twilight laser) and open the door for a
cutscene.

Boss - Mitsunari

What more can I say about this boss than what I did the last time you fought
him? He is exactly the same. Use Soki's Habakiri on him and use H. Splitter
if you're sure that you can get the attack on him. H. Splitter will take off
quite a bit if fully leveled. If you switch to Ohatsu, then use her Twilight
Laser. I'll go ahead and warn you that there is another boss fight after this
one, but it's not near as bad as the current one. Don't be afraid to use your
Oni Awakening to make the battle with Mitsunari shorter.

Boss - Claudius (Centipede)

Claudius is a very easy boss with predictable patterns. He will start the
battle by moving around in the background and will eventually charge at your
main character suddenly. The charge will break your guard, but he will not hit
you afterward, so all you have to do is block. He will leave behind some
standing dark essence that will poison you if you touch it. Run over to the
dark essence during the breaks, in between his charges, and absorb it with your
gauntlet. You can hit him with Ohatsu while he is moving around in the
background thanks to her long-range attacks. He will charge you a few more
times while leaving behind dark essence and will eventually stop and disappear.
When he disappears move around the area in circles and wait for a portal to
form. Right when the portal forms he will move through it into another portal
and try to attack you in the process. Wait for his head to go into the portal
then quickly hit him with a combo. If you catch his tail he will be stunned
for a few seconds allowing you to get plenty more hits. Use an H. Splitter, if
you have it leveled up enough, for some major damage.

After a few more portal attacks, he will bring his tail up out of the portal by
itself and will try to charge a laser and shoot it at you. Run up and attack
him whenever you see the tail by itself. The laser that he shoots is
blockable. He will switch back to dashing through portals after showing his
tail a few more times then he will start the same pattern all over again from
the start with the charging from the background. If your H. Splitter is fully
leveled you can totally own this boss in about ten hits using the H. Splitter,
if not, the battle will be a bit longer, but with his easy patterns he is
nothing to be feared. Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

HIDEOUT 13 (Higo Outpost)

Some new items are available at the shop, yada, yada. I would very much
recommend that you take Jubei through the dark realm just a bit to level her up
for the next two stages. The next stage won't be too bad for her, but you will
go through some hardships if she is not leveled up enough for the final stage.
It's a good idea to equip her with an item that will boost her magic since her
magic will be quite helpful for the battles in the next two stages. Keep her
equipped with a weapon that can do a critical chain from the Oni Magic attack
and it is good idea to equip her with a War or Contentment Charm since her
special attack (secret technique) will be extremely useful in the battles
ahead. Minokichi will give you MINO GORO'S THREAD as you depart. The uses for
this item will be shown later in the game.

******************************** Nagoya Castle ********************************

= Entrance =

Spear Genma will rush you at the very beginning of this stage. They could at
least give us time to listen to the narrative. Anyway, these Spear Genma are
quite tough so chop through them with a Critical Magic attack if you have to.
Up ahead a cutscene will show you plenty more Spear Genma along with two
Tunnelers. Make sure to block when the Tunnelers go under the ground if you
can't stab them. The treasure chest to the side holds a GENERAL'S CHOKER. The
door in the back has a Door Guardian attached to it so carefully drain its life
with attacks AFTER you have defeated the rest of the enemies. H. Splitter
takes it down quickly, but make sure to watch for its laser.

= Dried Up Well Area =

Soldier Genma will continually teleport into the area ahead as you defeat them.
Don't let them surround you because they can get quite vicious in groups. A
MEDICINE LV3 is on top of the well and the NAGOYA GROUNDS MAP is across from
the Enchanted Mirror. Make sure to have Ohatsu as your partner for the area
ahead. Down the path ahead you'll run across two more Tunneler Genma. A
puzzle box containing URIEL'S GAUNTLETS will be waiting for you to the left of
where the second Tunneler appears.

After the third Tunneler Genma pops up, you will run into a Warrior Genma
standing next to a force field. Two more Tunneler Genma will pop up as well.
Look out for the Warrior's long grappling shot - it has gotten much more long-
range than in previous stages. Take care of the Archers behind the Warrior
Genma first, and then focus on the Warrior Genma to remove the force field.

= Castle Courtyard Entrance =

A continuous assault of Genma Soldiers will pour in once you make it down the
ramp. Two Don Gachas will appear next to the Enchanted Mirror. Grab the DRIVE
JEWEL from near the Enchanted Mirror and rush ahead. Up ahead two Cannon Genma
will stand along the side of the exit door and a Menteith will be blocking the
door. Wait for the Cannons to fire, then rush behind them and kick them so
that they fire upon the Menteith. Stand back and defeat the Soldiers while the
Cannons slowly drain the Menteith. Check behind the right Cannon Genma to find
a puzzle box containing Soki's TIZONA sword.

TEST OF VALOR #1 - Nagoya Castle - Castle Courtyard

Destroy the target within the time limit!

Target: Dark Crow X3

This is where you will definitely need Ohatsu! Target the Dark Crow
immediately as the first one appears and then blast away with a laser gun.
After one drops, immediately target another. Do not worry about the souls if
you want a gold rank! The hardest part about this challenge is firing on an
actual Dark Crow without hitting a normal crow or a Spider Genma. Keep trying,
and boost your gun with souls at the nearby Enchanted Mirror if you must.

As you probably have already realized, you will have to fight Munenori with
Jubie alone. There are two ways you can approach this battle with Jubei. You
can equip the Masumune for the best attack power and bigger damage with
critical hits, but you will have to remember that he will always counter you
after the fifth hit of the Masumune combo. You can counter his hit with
Jubei's special attack (R2) if you stop the combo after the fifth hit. Instead
of using Masumune, you could use Sky Blade and not have to worry about
countering his hits since the Sky Blade will knock him down after four attacks.
Either weapon is useful, it just depends on if you can handle countering him
when you use Masumune.

The battle has not changed that much since you last fought him with Soki.
Toward the end of the battle he will start a new move in which he will make
another image of himself and both images will attack you. The best way to stop
this is to do an Oni Magic attack on either image and critical chain both of
them to get rid of the fake image and knock Munenori down. Slash repeatedly on
Munenori while he is falling from a critical attack. This battle is not hard
if you prepare for it and have enough magic power for when he starts his image
attack.

HIDEOUT 14

This will be the final save point where you will be able to journey back to the
other stages and find any items you may have missed. Basically, it is the
final hideout in the game. Make sure to keep this save as a separate save.
The fights ahead will be very difficult so it is good to keep this save as some
insurance just in case you find out that you are not leveled up enough. Make
sure to have all of your characters equipped with the best weapon and have
their armor leveled up to about level 35-40. There are new items available at
the shop as usual. Make sure to buy Tenkai's Fudo spear, as it will assist him
greatly for the battle ahead. Have Jubei equipped with a Blessed Oni Eye or
anything that will raise her magic. Soki should be on about level 70 before
you begin this stage. All of the Rosaries are now available in the shop. It's
a good idea to pick up a Rosary of Heart. The Rosary of Heart will help to
make the final battle a bit easier. You will find one in the stage ahead, but
it's good to have one for you and you're partner.

************************** Nagoya Castle (Backtrack) **************************

Go all the way back to the area where you fought Munenori. Yes ALL THE WAY
back there!

TEST OF VALOR #2 - Nagoya Castle - Top Floor

Protect the target!

Time Left: 2:00

Well, those two are at it again! Now they have an uber Genma General chasing
after them and you have got your work cut out for you while you protect them
this time. The Genma General will start the battle by summoning two Grenade
Launcher Genma. At the beginning of the battle, use Oni Magic to slice through
all three of the enemies to knock them down. Equip your partner with a Fudo
Horn, Horn of Susano, Wolf Ring (have him low in life), and anything else that
will raise his attack then unleash Soki's Oni Awakening. Have your partner set
to "Go All-out" during Soki's Oni Awakening. Defeat the two Grenade Launcher
Genma very quickly before they have a chance to fire much then concentrate all
of your attack on the Genma General. Keep him grounded with /\ attacks. When
Soki's Oni Awakening wears off, quickly switch to your powered up partner and
slash away at the General to finish him off while you have Soki set to "Go All-
out". Knock the General down with an Oni Magic Critical attack if he gets up.
This test of valor is very easy to fail if the Genma General decides to go
after the two targets since he will basically kill them with one hit. It is an
extremely good idea to have all three Rosaries during this battle.

Gold: Lucifer's Gauntlets
Silver: Diamond Ring
Bronze: Rare Salamander

Zombies and Big Zombies will continually spawn in this area. This is an
excellent place to build up souls and levels for the final battle ahead.

= Alleyway =

Enter the alley to the right and pick up the GENERAL'S RING from the chest then
save your game at the Enchanted Mirror. If you want to make any last minute
adjustements to any of your four characters then now would be the time to do
it. Up ahead you will face some Grenade Launcher Genma and a Warrior. Oni
Magic Chain your way through them. I usually leave Tenkai in his "Prayer"
command while in the alleyway to help boost Soki's attack for this part. Make
sure to hit the Grenade Launcher Genma with an Oni Magic attack if you see them
charging an energy shot since it is unblockable.

= Cherry Tree Road =

Midways down the road a cutscene will begin. Roberto will leave the party
after the cutscene. When the cutscene ends, run back the way you came into the
area behind you. Run to the camera's left side (up the stairs) and grab the
ONI OF FATE charm from inside the chest on the left. Go back the way you came.
Run up to the Genma Beetle in the back (nevermind the Cannon Genma) and get
behind him then use thrust attacks to take him down slowly. It may take a
while, but you will be safe from the Cannon Genma if you stay behind him. Run
up the stairs and check behind the left wall to find a puzzle box containing a
PROSPERITY CHARM. Open the door afterwards.

After the cutscene you will be in control of Soki alone. Grab the FUSHIMI
CASTLE MAP to the side and save your game. Journey up the path ahead to find
three Axemen along the way with a neverending stream of Soldier Genma
constantly teleporting into the area. When you make it to the Archer near the

= Road to Fushimi Castle 3 =

Recognize the narrator statements? It's the same words from the first stage.
Rush ahead and plow through the Don Gacha and Warrior Genma on your way to
picking up the ULTRA MED LV3 near the top. Fight through another Don Gacha and
Warrior Genma to reach the top and a cutscene will play.

Boss - Rosencrantz (Fly)

You will have to fight this boss with Roberto only. He seems nearly unhittable
at the beginning of the battle, but that will change once you see his weakness.
He will start the battle by spreading purple meteors around the area, which
will release Soldier Genma. These Soldier Genma must be defeated in order to
hurt Rosencrantz. If you take too long to defeat them then he will release
some more and you will have to fight through them as well. He will move to
both sides of the area and unleash poisonous gas on each side. Move away from
the side that he unleashes poison on immediately while you fight the Genma
Soldiers. If his mouth ever starts to glow a bluish color, block IMMEDIATELY
since he will unleash a series of electric shots toward you. If Soldier Genma
are surrounding you, he will hit them as well. If this hits you, make sure to
press X immediately afterwards to get up or he will bombard you with the rest
of the shots.

After all the Soldiers are gone he will try to fly above you and land on you.
This move is quite damaging so make sure to move out of the way. When he
lands, run up and attack him. He will fly back into the air and do the same
once again. Eventually he will fly a bit longer than normal then suddenly hit
the ground and remain stuck for about five seconds. Be sure to get in plenty
of attacks during the final fall. You will mainly have to watch out for his
rearend (aka. his ass) when he lands since it sticks out so much. He will go
back to his normal attacks after this phase. Defeat the Genma Soldiers once
again to make him try to land on you.

You can also use Oni Awakening and constantly spam him with /\ attacks when he
lands. You'll be invincible so there is no need to move away as he lands.

Here is another method that a reader emailed me with:

"My strategy is the same as yours, to a point. After he shoves his bottom into
the ground, immediately lock on and hit back + R2, then jam on Square. I had
Roberto's R2 moves up to the highest level, and it did ridiculous amounts of
damage to Rosy, not to mention that he paused every time he got hit, which
slows his traveling speed to Roberto, and allows him to get out of the way in
time easily."

(Thanks to Kamisamaa Pendragon)

Boss - Cladius (Centipede)

Now for Tenkai's battle. This fight is very easy if you have a 3 hit combo
spear! Like last time, block his charge attacks and absorb his dark essence
when he leaves it behind. Equip the Fudo spear and wait for him to charge
through the portal from the air and go through the portal in the ground and
then hit him. You will take off tons of damage per combo, especially if you
hit his tail. Nothing has changed whatsoever since the last battle.

Boss - Munenori

Now we are thrown into Jubei's struggle. I sense a pattern here. The only
thing that has changed about this battle from the last time you fought Munenori
is the fact that he will constantly do his image attack from the start. He
will not wait until half life this time. Make sure you have something equipped
that will give Jubei more magic since Oni Magic will help you a lot when he
does his image attack. Hit either image with Oni Magic and chain that attack
so that you hit the other image as well. You will still need to use Jubei's
counter or a 4 hit combo sword to stop the counter move of his. The more
aggressive you are during this battle, the easier it will be. Hit him from the
side while he is on the ground to take his life down faster, but be sure to
block the sand attack.

Boss - Ophelia

Now for Ohatsu's fight. This fight is easy if you can dodge her attacks well.
Drain her essence like you did the last time you fought her. Drain, sidestep
the flying kick, drain, sidestep. If you start absorbing from the very
beginning and keep draining nonstop (avoid the kick of course) then she will
not get a chance to summon Ninja Genma. After draining the dark essence, it is
all a matter of moving and shooting. Use a laser or a shotgun and keep
blasting her. If a Ninja Genma appears from her dark essence then kill him
first. The only hard part about this battle is dodging her combos that she
will do after she wakes up from the stun. Block most of the combo and sidestep
the last few hits then blast away as you run to the other side.

= Outside Fushimi Castle =

Well, it's all up to Soki now. Will our hero prevail? Move along the right
side of the tree up ahead to find a DRAGON OF FATE charm in the treasure chest.
Enter through the hole in the middle of the building.

= Castle Keep =

Open the sliding door ahead of you to begin a cutscene.

Boss - Hideyoshi w/Mech

Block the Mech's gunfire at the beginning then target a leg and run to it then
begin slashing it (or use an H. Splitter). If he tries to kick you then block
quickly. If he leans over then back away since he will do an unblockable sword
slice. All of his other attacks are unblockable. As you slice away at the
legs, they will start to malfunction. Watch out for the electricity around the
legs since it can hit you. Hit both of its legs enough times and the mech will
fall over on its back. That is your cue to combo away at the Mech's top half
while Hideyoshi lies helpless. A powered-up H. Splitter will murder him while
he is down! When the Mech gets up it will sink its sword into the ground and
release a power shockwave around it. Be sure to back off to one of the far
corners of the room to avoid it! Go back to slicing his legs afterward then
attack when he falls. This should be an easy battle with how slow his attacks
are. Use Sword of Purification's Stab if you can't get close to him at times.

Boss - Yodo (Cha-Cha)

You will have the choice of a partner at the beginning of this battle. I would
choose your most powerful character to join you. Tenkai with a leveled up Fudo
spear would be an excellent choice.

Alright, powerful and terrifying Onimusha, at the start of the battle tell your
partner to "Go All-out" so your partner will hit Yodo as you avoid her attacks.
Be sure to put on your running shoes with Soki since Yodo will unleash a
powerful (and unblockable) twin laser directly at you. The twin laser will
follow you wherever you go and will last for about five to six seconds per
blast. Run in big circles around the room to avoid the lasers while your
partner attacks her. She will do about three laser blasts (sometimes four)
then she will summon tentacles from the ground to shield her from your attacks.
She is invincible during this phase. She will summon Genma enemies (either
three Spider Genma or two Genma Generals) and will try to catch you with her
tentacles. When the ground below you starts to stir, run! If a tentacle
catches you then switch to your other character and try to break your main
character free of the tentacle's grip. The tentacle grab can be blocked, but
you will stagger afterward allowing the tentacle to knock you down. Set your
partner to "Wait and Recover" during this phase and use Oni Magic critical
chains to defeat the enemies. After you have defeated the summoned enemies,
she will go back to shooting lasers and repeat the phases.

When she gets down to her last 25% of life she will start to summon purple
fireballs from the ground that will daze you if they manage to hit you. Look
for the purple fire puddle below your character. If she hits your partner with
this then he/she will turn against you and try to attack. You may have to kill
your partner if this happens. If you use Oni Awakening during this battle, you
can basically own her with Oni /\ slashes while you are invincible, but there
is no need if you have Tenkai with a leveled up Fudo spear as a partner. The
computer AI of Tenkai will go crazy with that spear! If your Tenkai is not
taking off enough then equip him with everything at your disposal to boost his
attack. Equip him with a Wolf Ring since he will most likely spend much of the
battle in critical condition anyway. A Fudo Horn may help, but remember that
you need him to block during the enemy summon phase.

= Castle Keep =

I don't think I have to tell you, but just in case, SAVE YOUR GAME! Let the
Rosary of Health, Magic, and Heart fully replenish you if you have them
equipped while you set your ally to "Wait and Recover". Walk through the
opening in the wall for a set of cutscenes.

Boss - Fortinbras

This battle freaking rocks and is an epic masterpiece of a boss battle! You
will gain a whole new set of attacks for this battle. /\ will now unleash what
is referred to as an "Ultimate Attack". You will want to constantly hit
Fortinbras to gain more magic for this attack when you run out of magic. Most
of Fortinbras attacks are unblockable. His phsyical attacks are the only moves
that can be guarded against and even those will sometimes break your guard. He
will start the battle with a projectile-type attack most likely. If he starts
to breathe fire then move to the sides since he will unleash a huge flame from
his mouth. This move will likely hit you a few times since there is apparently
an invisible wall that will keep you from moving all the way to the side at
times. Try to keep to one side and move all the way to other side while
avoiding his fire breath. You can unleash an ultimate attack at any time while
getting hit with the fire breath to escape it. He will shoot energy spheres
throughout the area that will sometimes interfere with your dodging. If he
shoots energy waves toward you then move toward him and you'll move under them.
When he holds one of his fists back to hit you, guard his attack. If you ever
see an attack coming that you do not have time to avoid or guard then unleash
your ultimate attack at that time since you will be invicible for that moment.

Eventually he will move to the background and fire ice shots at you from his
fingertips. Move to the sides and stay away from the area that he is aiming
at. If you block the attack then it will eventually break your guard and hit
you. You will be frozen if you get hit by a shot and then Fortinbras will
prepare a charge punch to hit you. The only way to get away from this attack
while you are frozen is to unleash your ultimate attack right before his punch
connects. If you keep tapping the button then you will be able to unleash the
ultimate attack seconds before he hits you. Sometimes he will do the charge
punch without stunning you. Keep stepping to the side to avoid it. He will be
stunned for a minimal amount of time after the charge punch. If he ever holds
back both of his hands and growls into the air with his head tilted up then he
is pissed and is about to unleash what I like to call the ultimate smackdown.
He will start out by punching at you with a constant barrage of punches - this
is the only blockable part. He will then raise his hands into the air and fire
ice shots at you then stop and breathe fire - dodge to the sides. He will end
the combination with a two-handed smash that is unblockable and will totally
own you if it catches you. Luckily, if you dodge the fire by stepping to the
side, then you will most likely dodge the final hit also since he will only
smack what is directly in front of him. If you get hit with the fire, then
unleash an ultimate attack as he starts the final attack and you will avoid
damage. He will be stunned for a very long time after this attack and you
should take full advantage by hitting him with constant slashes to regain your
magic and health. The Rosary of Magic and Health will help you out a bit
during this fight so equip them if you have them.

Boss - Fortinbras (Human Form)

This is the true final battle. No really, it is the last battle in the game
and it is definitely the hardest! Don't be afraid to use all of your recovery
items since you will most likely need a few. This battle gets harder and
harder as you take down this bosses life gauge. It's ironic how easy the
battle appears to be at the beginning compared to the madhouse you face at the
end when you go for the final few hits. Be sure to pick your best character
for a partner and set them to "Wait and Recover" while the boss attacks. Have
all the Rosaries Equipped and give your partner a Rosary of Heart so that both
of your OP gauges will recharge if you happen to use Oni Awakening with either
character.

Alright, for starters, here is the way to attack the boss. Wait for him to
charge his ultimate attack ("Feel the power building in me!") and an icon will
appear in the upper right hand corner telling you to "Dissolve Barrier" by
tapping X. Start absorbing some of the power from his attack as he charges
then wait for him to hurl the meteor. The meteor should be small when he
throws it so deflect the meteor back with your sword. Try to use an uppercut
(Back + []) to deflect the meteor. The meteor will hit him and stun him. DO
NOT stand still while waiting for him to throw the meteor or he will hit you
with an attack from his magma rocks. Attack the small rocks that are on the
screen around you after reflecting the meteor. You can have your partner help
you for this part. There are only two at the beginning but there will be more
later. Once you have destroyed all the rocks, he will start to float down from
above. This is your big chance to unleash hell upon him by attacking him with
your most powerful moves while telling your partner to "Go All-out!" Hit him
with endless H. Splitters as your partner attacks. You will hardly take any
damage from him while hitting him, but that is always the case. He will always
summon more magma rocks after he recovers.

If he ever yells, "I am the god of light!" then he is about to unleash a
barrage of light shots at you. Release your targeting and run around in
circles around the area when he does this to avoid it. Try as much as you can
to watch for attacks from the magma rocks as they move around the area while
avoiding this attack. When he yells, "You will not live defying the will of
god" then purple bolts will rain down from the sky eventually. The purple
bolts will break your guard if you block them so try to stand to the side so
that no other attacks will connect with them.

Magma Rock Attacks:

Ice Shot - run to the sides. It will freeze you for a couple of seconds if it
hits.

Fire from ground - stand in the middle area between the flames (it will not hit
you) or move to the sides.

Laser rays - Block. He loves to pin you down with this attack.

Blue energy currents - avoid by running to the sides or in between them. This
is the most annoying attack.

He will start his BS mode that I mentioned previously once the screen flashes.
The area will be utter chaos and you will most likely have to start using some
items or unleash your Oni Awakening. You will have to start absorbing his
power very early as the battle wages on since you will be required to absorb
more to stop his attack. The magma rocks will have no mercy during his last
25% of life and will attack anytime, even during the light shots or ultimate
attack. If you fail to stop his ultimate attack then he will most likely hit
you and take half of your life.

After the battle, the ending cutscenes will play.

Be sure to watch the credits for an extra cutscene, then save your game after
the cutscene to start with all your weapons and levels on your next game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a collection of all the enemies from the game along with their
respective attacks. I have listed whether each attack is blockable or not, or
if it breaks your guard. Attacks that break your guard will not hit you, but
if another attack hits directly after the guard break then you will get hit. I
have also listed the beginning animation for each attack so you will have an
idea of what to look for when the enemy attacks.

=================
= Genma Soldier =
=================

The Genma Soldier is your basic enemy in Onimusha (always has been). There are
a variety of Soldier types that will be found throughout the game, but they all
share the same basic attacks yet they will start to chain more slices together
in later stages. The normal soldier will yell before each attack, but the
later soldiers will not.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Overhead Swing | Yes | Raises sword into the air |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Side Swing | Yes | Holds sword to side |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-- Item Drop: Grass, Wildflower (Elite)

-- Rare Item Drop: Invention Notes, Footsoldier's Ring (Normal), Knight Ring
(Elite)

===============
= Genma Giant =
===============

This enemy will only appear in the first stage of the game. He can only be hit
at certain times while he is stunned.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Horizontal Attack | Yes | Moves his left arm to the side |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Vertical Attack | Yes | Moves right arm over you |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Gunfire | Yes | Guns on chest start to fire on one side |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Crush Attack | No | Ducks out of site behind the building |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

================
= Genma Archer =
================

Usually about two or three archers will appear with a band of Soldier Genma and
try to pick you off from a distance with their flame arrows. Always defeat
these enemies first. Later in the game they will shoot three arrows.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Flame Arrow(s) | Yes | Points bow and arrow toward you |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-- Item Drop: Medicine LV1, Oni Med LV1, Flame Necklace

-- Rare Item Drop: Black Rifle, Light Rifle

================
= Genma Axeman =
================

When you see these, try to knock them down as much as you can. When they raise
their axe back, get ready to block no matter what you are doing! Like the
Soldier Genma and Archers you will run into a more powerful version of the
Axeman later.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Overhead Axe | Break | Leans axe back |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Horizontal Axe | Break | Leans axe back |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| * Two Hit Axe | Break | Leans axe back |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

* This move is for the Axemen that you will run into toward the end of the
game. Even though the attack will break your guard for each hit, it is slow
enough so that you will recover from each hit and be able to block the whole
combo.

-- Item Drop: Medicine LV1, Sergeant's Ring, Medicine LV2 (Elite), Sweet Herb
(Elite)

=========
= Jubei =
=========

Jubei will be the mid-boss of the Plains Outpost. There is little warning
before her attacks.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Normal Combo | Yes | Usually starts it when close |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Pressure Attack | Yes | Hits once then starts to circle you |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Kick | Yes | Does this before or after combos |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

=================
= Door Guardian =
=================

The door guardian will attach itself to doors found throughout the game and
attack you if you try to get near it. The door guardian must be defeated to
open the specific door it is attached to. Their laser attack can be quite
damaging if they manage to catch you on one side and drag you with the laser as
they fire.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Laser | Yes | Eye will glow |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Upward Swing | Yes | Tentacle hands will move downward |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Side Swing | Yes | Tentacle hands will move to sides |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Concentrated Laser| Yes | Eye will glow, laser stays in place |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-- Item Drop: Secret Med LV1

-- Rare Item Drop: Secret Med LV2

===============
= Ninja Genma =
===============

A very fast and agile Genma that loves to attack then run while you try to
counter. The Ninja Genma toward the end of the game will actually parry your
attacks while you attack them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Jumping Attack | Yes | Rubs claws together and jumps |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Rushing Stab | Yes | Rushes toward you (not much warning) |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Horizontal Slash | Yes | Rubs claws together |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

-- Item Drop: Mushrooms, Onimaru, Red Mushrooms (Elite), Rare Mushrooms (Elite)

================
= Spider Genma =
================

These can easily be the most annoying type of Genma because they like to sit
and wait for a chance to attack from their webbing. Always make sure to block
when you see one of them in its webbing up above you. There are two types:
Hell and Normal Spider Genma.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| * Lunge Attack | Yes/Break | Fly's down from webbing |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Claw Stab | Yes | Leans one arm back and stabs forward |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Double Claw Strike| Yes | Leaps on back then quickly leaps forward|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

* If he leaps up in his web while right next to you then it will break your
guard. Only from far away will it not break your guard. In other words, if he
is far enough way to where you have to approach him, then your guard will not
break while blocking the attack.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

===============
= Spear Genma =
===============

These are some very determined Genma when it comes to their spear charge - they
will hit something, whether it is the wall or you unless you knock them out of
their charge with a heavy hit. Always listen for their yells when fighting
them in a group so you'll know when to guard their spear charge.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Spear Charge | Yes | Yells then charges |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| * Spear Twirl | Yes | Holds spear above head |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Only the Spear Genma found in later stages will do this. They mainly like to
counter your hits with this move and they are resistant to normal attacks while
they spin their spear.

=================
= Armored Genma =
=================

These Genma are heavily armored and cannot be properly damaged until their
armor is removed through constant attacks. They cannot be knocked down or
staggered until their armor is gone so you will have to avoid their attacks and
attack them while their armor is on.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Horizontal Strike | Yes | Holds mace back to ready attack |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Overhead Strike | Yes | Holds mace back to ready attack |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Explosion | * Break | Falls to the ground and explodes |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| ** 3-hit combo | Yes/Break | Holds mace back to ready attack |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

* - Only one hit of the explosion can be blocked. The explosion will hit
multiple times if you are caught directly in the middle of it so you will most
likely get hit if you try to block it then. It's best to avoid if by stepping
to the side.

** The Armored Genma found later in the game will have this damaging three hit
combo. The final hit will break your guard.

you multiple times after breaking your guard.

==================
= Mushroom Genma =
==================

These Genma are heavily armored and will usually take quite a pounding to
defeat. They will always summon some other type of Genma, but the summoned

attack.

if you try to attack them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

=================
= Genma General =
=================

Much like the Gachas, these enemies take quite a pounding in order to knock
them down. Unlike the Don Gacha, they have some attacks that you cannot knock
them out of. The best way to fight them is with Oni Magic, but beware their
heavy attacks.

==================
= Tunneler Genma =
==================

Much like their names suggest, these Genma will dig into the ground and burrow
toward you. They will jump out of the ground from beneath you and try to hit
you with their claws. While they are in the ground, you can perform a finisher
with any weapon for an instant kill.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

run and throw energy disc from a distance. There are two types: Green and Red.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Energy Disc | Yes | Disc appears on arm then Genma tosses it|

unblockable. There is no warning as to what move he will do at the end of his
combo.

================
= Genma Cannon =
================

These are armored similar to a Mushroom Genma, but their armor is not quite as
heavy. They will constantly shoot out cannonballs that will destroy anything
in their path. Kick them to make them turn while firing. If you point them
toward a group of Genma they can do all the work for you.

================
= Bomber Genma =
================

Bomber Genma like to sneak in their attacks while you fight other enemies.
They will run up next to you and plant a bomb on the ground near you then run
off. The bomb is unblockable so you must stop everything that you are doing
and move to avoid it. If you kill a Bomber before his bomb goes off then the
bomb may not explode, but it will sometimes still go off even after his death.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

==============
= Genma Mage =
==============

These Genma can be a pain when in pairs. They will constantly try to trap you
within a vortex that will cast a spell on you. Run out of the way of the
vortex to dodge the attack. It is best to knock these Genma out of the air and
stab them while they lie on the ground.

| Fist Attack(s) | Yes | Zombie yells then runs |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

want to see the Dark Puppet's move set. They mainly stick with the basic
combos for that character and do not chain into special attacks.

=================
= Warrior Genma =

Oni Magic Criticals very easily. Keep them grounded most of the time to keep
them from attacking.

* The final hit will break your guard.

-- Item Drop: Medicine LV2

-- Rare Item Drop: Dainsleif

===============
= Boxer Genma =
===============

These are the most annoying of all the Genma simply because you basically have
to use a critical in order to hit them. Use Oni Magic attacks or wait for him
to block then kick him and hit him with a critical. If you stand and block
then he will always block eventually. Fighting him with normal attacks is
suicide since he will dodge most of your attacks then counter.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

= Soul Absorber Genma =
=======================

These Genma will constantly soak up all the souls that you get for killing
other Genma. Use the Soul Absorption with your gauntlet to reel these Genma in
for an attack. They are not really too bad, until you run into the red variety
on later stages. The red Soul Absorbers will fight your Soul Absorption until
they get right next to you, then suddenly lash out with a ram.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ATTACK | BLOCKABLE | BEGINNING ANIMATION |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| * Ram | Yes | Moves toward you while you pull him in |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Only the red Soul Absorbers, found later in the game, will do this.

| Kick Combo |* Yes/Break| No real warning (Close range) |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

* The breaking hit of Ohelia's combos must be dodged or she will hit you with
the final hit. The Claw Attack is actually the last few hits of her Slash
combo so you will need to dodge after guarding the first hit or she will break
your guard with the second hit and attack you with the third hit.

These will appear on the final stage of the game. They are basically the
Machine Gunner Genma with an unblockable attack. Just like the Machine
Gunners, keep them grounded most of the time. If you see them readying their

====================================
= Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) =
====================================

[SCRT05]

(1)

Q: What is the Crow Feather found in Stage 4 used for? What about the Oni Orb
and Mino Goro's Thread?

A: It is there for story purposes. There is no use other than that. If you
talk to Jubei after collecting the Crow Feather she will mention that Munenori
must be there at the Fortress. That is the only use that I know of.

The Oni Orb is basically for story purposes as well since Soki needs this to
awaken the power of the Onimusha. Mino Goro's Thread allows Soki to choose
from the options that Minokichi had earlier in the game for the final hideout
before Stage 17, such as revisiting stages and traveling to the Dark Realm.

(2)

Q: What is the maximum level for armor?

A: Armor can be upgraded all the way to level 100 and it will be labeled as MAX
on the menu from then on and cannot be upgraded any more, much like a weapon.

(3)

Q: Is there an easier way to get Fallen Angel and Balmunk besides those damn
Test of Valors?

A: You're not going to like this, but the Dark Realm is really the way to go
since you fight multiple Genma Generals of all varieties there. The
unfortunate part is that you only fight them on the last 10 stages. Equip the
Gambler's Thimble, Gambler's Dice, something to increase your attack (Fudo
Horn, Horn of Susano) along with a weapon that is opposite their element (Black
= Dark, so use light, Blue = Ice, so use fire).

(4)

Q: Any tips for the Dark Realm?

A: Equip a Fudo Horn, Horn of Susano, Lucky Charm, and a Charon's Bell or
Rosary of Heart (but equip the Charon's Bell before you die). Wait until the
last few stages to equip the Horn of Susano. Use constant Oni Magic Critical
Chain and you can basically chain the whole room for the first few floors.
Stock up on as many Charon's Bells as you can carry and don't forget to equip
them right before you die. The Oni Awakening will save you from death, but if
you have a Charon's Bell equipped, the Charon's Bell will revive you first.
It's best to try to unleash the Oni Awakening manually before just before you
die if you plan on keeping a Charon's Bell equipped since the Charon's Bell
will give you a full OP gauge once again when it revives you. Make sure to
constantly check your equipment before you die to make sure that you have a
Charon's Bell equipped - I cannot stress this enough!

With Tenkai, use his Thunderclap while a bunch of souls are on the screen and
you will be able to literally own the whole area at times. Draw souls toward
heavily armored enemies and use Thunderclap as the souls reach them to take off
some massive damage. You forfeit all the souls on the screen while using the
Thunderclap, but the payoff in damage is totally worth it!

With Soki, you're going to need a bunch of Charon Bell's (I would say about 40
to be safe). Use his Sword of Purification Coil Attack (R2) while in the
middle of his Oni Awakening during the final few levels to take your enemies
down very quickly when they gang up on you. Use his Purification Coil often
during the last few stages and use other moves such as Whirlwind, H. Splitter,
and Phoenix to keep him standing even as the enemy attacks. As with any
character, Oni Magic Criticals is a must. When you come to the Genma Generals
equip a powerful weapon that is opposite their element to take them down
quicker: Blue, equip fire; Green, equip earth; Yellow, equip wind; Black, equip
light. The effects of different elements may not be too noticeable during
normal attacks but when you use a Level 3 Oni Magic attack it will take off
more than usual.

With Jubei, it would be best to have a fully upgraded Onimura blade or get to
Level 50 of the Dark Realm and collect the Arondight - exit the Dark Realm,
upgrade it fully then reenter (please note that you'll have to go through the
first 50 levels once again if you exit though). Some good items to equip are
the Rosary of Magic, Rosary of Heart, Low King Ring, General's Ring or
Warrior's Ring. For the final few stages, you will need to constantly chain
Oni Magic Criticals in order to stay invincible since the enemies will be very
unforgiving as usual. Since Jubei's combos are usually longer than the other
character's combinations, you might want to end the combo early at times to
avoid getting hit. As usual, an Oni Awakening will be a godsend.

(Thanks to Joao Augusto, NoLogo, and all the people that emailed me about
Jubei)

Still working on some strategies for the other characters at the moment.

I would like to have a tips section for the Dark Realm so if any of you have
any interesting character specific strategies and tips then email me.

This is an email that I received from a reader a few days after my last update.
I'll just copy and paste it from the email since it is very well written and
descriptive.

"Usual Equips:

Rosary of Health(Slow HP regen) <- Stays
Commander's Ring(+10 AP) <- Filler, didn't know what to equip
Commander's Choker(+10 DP) <- Ditto, and, is often replaced
Rosary of Heart(Slow OP regen) <- Replaced once OP is full, put on when it
isn't and during Awakening

Situational Equips:

[Animal] Ring(50% extra damage against certain elements)
-For Genma Generals, but not the Dark Element one
Tao Master's Ring(50% more magic damage)
-When spamming magic of course
Lucky Charm(-25% MP consumption)
-Goes with the above
Charon Bell(Revive with full HP/MP/OP)
-Equipped whenever Awakening is about to end or OP is below half
More stuff, but I forgot them <_<;

I dunno if people know this, but archer arrows turn into yellow souls when hit.
So, clear the floor of all enemies except the archer and heal using the arrows.

1. For Soki, I switched between spamming Oni Magic Lv. 3(Gleam) against flying
enemies, and Chain Criticals(Excalibur; Gleam is used beforehand) against
everything else. If MP becomes an issue, a weapon with the "Attack Wave"
property can be used in combination with Dodging(L1+Direction). Most melee
enemies can be taken down without a scratch like this, and the same applies to
some ranged enemies. Regular combat works wonders with a high AP
weapon(obviously). I used his Awakening when the action became too hectic.

2. Jubei...pretty much the same strategy above applies(minus the weapons :P). I
try not to use the Demon Eye unless if I really need to because it always ends
up wasted when there are flying enemies about.

3. Ohatsu has ranged weapons that can actually hit flying enemies without too
much of a problem. For the early levels, I suggest a normal type
shot(Guardian), and the lasers for floors beyond. All I did was shoot and
dodge, with the occasional use of her bugs to prevent death.

4. I had trouble with Roberto, so I decided to spam Light Magic. That's all I
have for him. Course, I used the magic criticals when they were more cost
effective.

5. Tenkai just uses one burst of Light Magic(Level 3), then thunderclaps the
rest, if all that was released were reds. I usually choose to absorb the blue
and purple souls.

Keep in mind I did not pause to recover inbetween floors. If a person is decent
enough at fighting, the Rosary of Heart should restore 1/4th of a character's
OP half-way through floors past 50. With a strong enough weapon, the character
should only spend about 1/3rd of the OP then move onto the next floor. This is
assuming no purple souls are released when enemies are killed.

As a standard, I never use a full combo against any heavy enemies(Armor things,
Gunners, those shockwave beasts...). I usually dash in, hit 3 times, and dodge
in the appropriate direction. For any level with "smart" cannons(they aim at
you!), I dodge all around, letting them do the killing. I try to leave the
tentacle enemies last, because revealing them in the heat of battle is quite
dangerous..."

(Thanks to yugioh903)

(5)

Q: Why is this code not working?

A: Each region specific copy of Onimusha: DoD has its own specific code or way
to get the secret costumes. I have listed the codes for the PAL version so
check in the secrets section. For the Japanese version, you had to collect Oni
Charms that were spread throughout the game in select locations. There is an
in-depth FAQ on GameFAQs that points out the locations if you are interested.

(6)

Q: What other games can I find like Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams?

A: Check the "About Shadow of Rome" section under Everything Else. Also, Genji
and the other Onimushas (if you haven't played them of course) would be some
other great choices.

(7)

Q: How do I (a) equip my other characters besides Soki and (b) how do I equip
rings, necklaces, or any other items?

A: (a) Pause the game like normal then select "Equip". Cycle through the
available characters by pressing to the left or right with the D-pad
(Directional pad). Notice their names displayed at the very top. At the
hideout, all characters in your party can be equipped, but in a stage, only the
current partner can be equipped.

A: (b) Pause the game like normal then select "Equip". Highlight the slot that
you want to equip the accessory to and press X. From that screen, press the
left and right direction on the D-pad (Directional pad) to choose between
rings, necklaces, or other as displayed above the top table.

-- Version History

Version 0.8 - (April 28, 2006) - This guide is still not as complete as I'd
like it to be, but I'm releasing it early since it seems to be taking quite a
while to finish. Some sections are still a bit unfinished so you might see
some blank areas. A few sections haven't been proofread yet either, but I'll
get to that by the next update. The rest of the Test of Valors (and the
unfinished TOV's) will be added (and updated) soon.

Version 0.85 - (April 29, 2006) - Added all the info for backtracking up to
Stage 12. Also added a few more weapons and weapon stats.

Version 1.0 - (May 1, 2006) - For the most part the FAQ is complete. All
backtrack areas have been added. Still missing a few weapons that I will add
later and I plan to list the Dark Realm items eventually.

Version 1.1 - (May 2, 2006) - Added all the character moves and updated the
weapons section a bit. The Weapons section has now been moved to the bottom.
Added a note for the puzzles in the City of Sakai (Stage 13) level. Please
email me about that if you can.

Version 1.2 - (May 4, 2006) - Added tons of the weapon info for most of the
weapons in the game. Rapport is now listed in the Basics section. Jubei's
Dark Realm items are now up thanks to a reader. I also fixed up the FAQ here
and there to help make some sections easier on the eyes.

Version 1.3 - (May 5, 2006) - Added more codes for the second painting puzzle
on Stage 13. That is all.

Version 1.4 - (May 6, 2006) - A few more codes for the Stage 13 puzzle are now
available and few more item drops have been added to the Enemies section.
Spider Genma attacks were updated as well.

Version 1.5 - (May 9, 2006) - More item drops are now available in the Enemies
section and more codes were added to the Stage 13 puzzle. It seems as if that
puzzle is TOTALLY random. Changed "Oni" to "Gargant" for the Stage 9 boss
battle.

Version 1.6 - (May 13, 2006) - More items drops and two more codes for the
Stage 13 puzzle were added. If anybody can confirm some item drops that I am
missing then please email me. Thanks.

Version 1.7 - (May 15, 2006) - Tenkai's Dark Realm items are now available
along with some more items drops for enemies and two more Stage 13 codes.

Version 1.8 - (May 22, 2006) - More codes for Stage 13 were added and a few
corrections were made here and there.

Version 1.9 - (May 26, 2006) - More codes were added for the Stage 13 puzzle
making a grand total of 26 different codes so far. A few more item drops were
added and half of Ohatsu's Dark Realm item list is finished. Also added the
codes for the PAL Street Fighter outfits for the European readers. The title
ASCII art has been lowered and there is now an "About Me" section at the very
bottom for your reading pleasure.

Version 2.0 - (May 31, 2006) - Added the location for the Oni of Fate charm to
Stage 17. Ohatsu's Dark Realm items are now all available and there are some
more Stage 13 codes making a total of 35 codes.

Version 2.1 - (June 5, 2006) - Ohatsu's Dark Realm weapon stats are now up.
Roberto's Dark Realm items are now listed. There is also an extra puzzle box
location for the backtrack section of Azuchi Castle (West Trap Room Rootop) and
I have added an extra tip for the battle with Sakon while your Tenkai in Stage
8. Also, there is a new section under Secrets, revealing all the locations for
the Oni and Dragon Charms. I have some more codes for Stage 13, but I'll
address that issue next update... I'm thinking about taking them all out and
doing a REALLY descriptive solution for one or two codes since that big list of
codes in the Stage 13 area of this walkthrough is starting to annoy me. There
are probably over 200 solutions anyway and if I listed all of those, it would
really only provide extra work for the readers to go through them all. I'll
still gladly accept emails on the matter though.

Version 2.2 - (June 19, 2006) - As you may have noticed, the version history is
now down at the bottom. Added the locations for two new puzzle boxes in
Sawayama Castle (Stage 11). There you will find Roberto's Brinnhilde gauntlets
and the Emobossed Mallet. Might want to check that out if you skipped it.
Weapon stats are now added for all the Dark Realm weapons. I have finally
updated the Stage 13 code section also. All the codes except for two of them
have been removed and there is now a super descriptive method in their place.
If you still do not understand the code then email me with your building and
painting setup and I will help you out.

Version 2.3 - (June 22, 2006) - An explanation of Oni Magic has been added
under the Basics section. Added an Oni Jewel location found right at the
beginning of Kyoto (Stage 7) to the walkthrough section. The weapons section
has been totally revamped in the same order as the weapon list under the pause
menu. Joke weapons have been added at the bottom of each weapon list as well.
I'm still not totally sure on the numbering for Soki's Balmunk, Fallen Angel,
and Excalibur sword however. If you know the correct order, then please email
me.

Version 2.4 - (June 26, 2006) - Added quite a few things this update. The
weapon stats and numbers for Balmunk, Fallen Angel, and Excalibur have been
added. I also added the weapon AP for Tenkai's Ithuriel spear - didn't even
notice that I had skipped that. Oni Magic LV1 is now listed for every weapon
as well. Added an extra tip for the Rosencrantz battle in Twisted Kyoto.
There is a new "FAQ" section in the Secrets section and an "About Shadow of
Rome" section under Everything Else. The first puzzle description in Stage 13
has an extra note about it being random.

Version 2.5 - (June 30, 2006) - Corrected a few areas here and there and
started adding a list for all the other items in the game below the weapons
list. The "Weapons" section will most likely be renamed the "List" section by
the next update.

Version 2.6 - (July 3, 2006) - Finished up the list items. Added a few more
item drops and some information to the FAQ sections for Soki's Dark Realm run.
Street Fighter Music was added to the Special Menu section under Secrets.
Corrected a few mistakes as well - it's amazing how many I can look over while
proofreading...

Version 2.7 - (August 4, 2006) - Added some tips for Jubei's Dark Realm
ascension and corrected a minor error.

Version 2.8 - (October 1, 2006) - Many strategies have been added to all the
sections. It would be best to visit the Special Thanks section to find the
latest editions.

Version 2.9 - (February 26, 2007) - Added one more question to the Frequently
Asked Questions section. Corrected an error for question #1. Big thanks to
that reader!

-- Contact Info

I can be reached at my email address, which is > berserker_kev@yahoo.com <, so
please contact me if you have any questions, comments, etc. I don't mind
receiving emails at all. All I ask is for you to try to make the email decent.
I realize that some people do not speak perfect English or cannot type that
well, so that doesn't really matter to me, but all that I ask is that you try
to make it readable. If you found this walkthrough helpful, an email would be
most appreciated.

I would prefer you not to add me to your messenger, but if you do, at least
tell me a bit about yourself and why, or if I know you, tell me who you are.
One of my pet peeves is when people just add me to their messenger without
saying anything. I usually just deny their request.

-- About Me

Well, my name is Kevin. I'm 26 years old and reside in the US (Mississippi).
I've been an avid player of video games ever since I first got an Atari 2600
back when I was 6 years old. I've tried to escape into many other hobbies but
always wind up back to square one with video games. My favorite gaming series
is Resident Evil by far, then second would be Castlevania. Playing just about
any survival horror is a major high point in my gaming experience. A few of my
other interests include horror movies, anime, and I'm a complete message board
junkie. You can find me at Artic Nightfall (Berserker) or the Resident Evil or
Castlevania IGN message boards (berserker_kev). I'm also a big fan of viewing
artwork, though I can't draw myself. Even though I can't draw, I try to be a
creative person through writing, and hopefully that reflects in my guides. My
dream is to be a professional walkthrough writer, but until then I will
continue to publish guides for free on GameFAQs and the various other gaming
sites.

For any other info about me, please see my FAQ Writer of the Month interview at
IGN:

-- About Shadow of Rome

I have gotten quite a few emails asking me if I know of any other games that
are like Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams. Well, I would like to direct your attention
to the little known game from the makers of Onimusha known as Shadow of Rome.
If you haven't ever played this game then you should definitely give it a try.
It has some really deep combat, deeper than Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, and the
combat is very, very addicting. There are plenty of weapons to choose from and
each weapon has it's own set of moves. Chop off limbs, cut enemies in half,
cut off their head, burn them alive, impale your enemy, break their arms before
you cut them off, beat your opponents with severed limbs and heads, the list
goes on. The game is hard and has a steep learning curve, but that's what
makes it fun!

The game is set in ancient Rome where you must take on the role of a general in
the Roman army known as Agrippa, who struggles through hardships and ultimately
gets drawn into fighting his way through the gladiatorial games to seek
vengeance on Decius, the man who killed his mother. Agrippa's father,
Vipsanius, is accused of murdering Caesar, and the prize for winning the
gladiatorial games will be the right to execute Vipsanius, so Agrippa plans to
fight his way to the top and save his father while exacting his revenge upon
Decius.

Seriously, I wouldn't be making a section in an Onimusha: DoD walkthrough if
this game was in any way bad, so go pick up a copy today and email me if you
enjoy it. Check out my FAQ on GameFAQs if you have any problems. I think it
illustrates my obsession with that game very well.
