AUGUST 20, 2002
UPDATE: I added more to the walkthrough, all the 
way to the area after 
controlling Oyuu. 

AUGUST 18, 2002
UPDATE: I changed my e-mail address. Blame it on 
Klez. 

AUGUST 13, 2002
UPDATE: I worked on the walkthrough some more, 
after getting off my lazy 
behind.

JULY 5, 2002
UPDATE: After getting off my lazy behind, I 
started working on the 
walkthrough again. 

JUNE 18, 2002
UPDATE: Worked on the walkthrough some more.

JUNE 17, 2002
UPDATE: Worked on the walkthrough big time today. 
I covered the CAVE 
areas, and the PALACE that appears in the first 
Onimusha game. I also 
added more monsters.  

JUNE 16, 2002
UPDATE: I _FINALLY_ received the game! I started 
playing it, and I 
started the walkthrough. I know the FAQ is 
horribly incomplete right 
now, but that's because there is no language 
options (It's completely in 
Japanese, unlike Genma Onimusha and Onimusha: 
Warlords. But many of the 
sections have been worked out so far, and more 
work will progress 
throughout the summer.

1. ONIMUSHA 2: SAMURAI'S DESTINY FAQ INTRODUCTION

==================================================
======================

This FAQ covers the Japanese version of Onimusha 
2: Samurai's Destiny 
for the Sony PlayStation 2. When the game is 
released in the U.S.A., the 
FAQ will cover it as well. Onimusha: Warlords, 
Genma Onimusha, and 
Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny are copyright 2002 
by Capcom Japan. I 
don't own any of the rights to those games. 

This FAQ may only be found on:

www.gamefaqs.com
www.neoseeker.com
www.psxcodez.com

Those websites keep the FAQ up to date, and are 
the most visited 
websites based on the PlayStation 2 console. 

This FAQ, as of right now, is meant for the 
Japanese version, as said 
earlier. With that in mind, it will be difficult 
for me to write for 
this game, but that challenge will eventually be 
overcome with the U.S. 
version. But for now, please cope with the 
Japanese-version FAQ. It is 
written from an English speaker who knows little 
Japanese. Unlike the 
first Onimusha, Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny is 
JAPANESE-ONLY. Import 
at your own risk.

Onto the FAQ.

==================================================
======================

2. GAME BASICS

==================================================
======================

A. CONTROLS
-----------

SQUARE: Slash sword
R1: Ready sword, before slashing with SQUARE
L1: Defense
START: Item Screen
SELECT: Options
CIRCLE: Confirm/Action button
X BUTTON: Absorb souls in battle
RIGHT ANALOG STICK: Access the map
D-PAD: Move character

B. FIGHTING TACTICS
-------------------

SLASH, SLASH, SLASH! 
Kill and don't stop slashing. You may end up 
kicking a few enemies, but 
press UP to keep slashing. Try to stab them when 
they're on the ground 
for an instant kill. 

ABSORB ALL ORBS!
Yes, they are crucial to your survival. The more 
orbs you get, the more 
upgrading you can do. 

LOOK FOR CHESTS!
Inside are items which can heal Jubei in time of 
need. GREEN HERBS are 
usually what are in there, though you might see 
other items, too.

GRAB THE JEWELS!
In the ground after killing monsters are jewels. 
They have value, and 
are apparently used as currency (I can be wrong, 
though). 

SUPER JUBEI!
Possibly, if you've killed enough monsters, and 
absorb their souls, you 
might become SUPER JUBEI! Resembling Super Dante 
in Devil May Cry, he 
becomes way more powerful. Unfortunately, it 
lasts for a few seconds 
only. 

LET PEOPLE HELP YOU!
Every so often, some guy with a shotgun or a big 
guy will assist you in 
battle. They will help you, and in some cases, 
even help against bosses.

C. HEALTH
---------

YELLOW ORBS
These recharge your health. They come when 
Jubei's health is low. Try to 
collect these as much as possible. 

GREEN HERB
Like BioHazard/Resident Evil, this recharges a 
little bit of health to 
Jubei. You can transform this into MEDICINE by 
spending PURPLE ORBS in 
the MAGIC MIRROR.

MEDICINE
These can sometimes be found in chests, but you 
can upgrade GREEN HERBS 
to these by spending a certain amount of PURPLE 
ORBS.

D. ORBS
-------

After killing off demons and getting that symbol 
marked on your hand, 
you can absorb orbs that fly into the air. Here 
are the orbs in the game 
encountered thus far. Small orbs usually provide 
a little bit of what 
they offer, while middle sized ones offer 
moderate gifts. Giant ones 
offer a whole lot. 

YELLOW ORBS
These recharge your health. They come when 
Jubei's health is low. Try to 
collect these as much as possible. 

PURPLE ORBS
These fill up the gauge on the bottom. It is 
basically money used for 
powering up your swords and armor. Use these on 
MAGIC MIRRORS when 
powering up your supplies.

BLUE ORBS
Apparently, BLUE ORBS can be collected. Enough of 
them will turn you 
into SUPER JUBEI. 

E. SAVING
---------

In the game, there are MAGIC MIRRORS (a wooden 
cage with a blue light in 
it). The first option to select is SAVE. You will 
need a PlayStation 2 
Memory Card and 390 KB of data left to save the 
game. In the Japanese 
version, the first option is to save (when you 
examine the MAGIC 
MIRROR). Then select the first option given to 
you.  

==================================================
======================

3. WALKTHROUGH

==================================================
======================

NOTE: All names are strictly from my non-Japanese 
language point of 
view. The game uses A LOT of Kanji, and Kanji is 
imported from Chinese. 
Kanji is the most complicated writing system in 
Japan, and I don't 
understand a lot. There is also a lot of Hiragana 
and a little bit of 
Katakana. I READ (NOTE: *NOT* understand) them 
fairly decently, but 
there is a load of Kanji making the game 
difficult to read out. 

**************************************************
**********************
HUNTING FOR POWER
**************************************************
**********************

After listening to the prologue which documents 
the events in Onimusha: 
Warlords/Genma Onimusha, a war goes on in a 
village. People are 
murdered, and snakes are everywhere. A lone 
warrior, Jubei, walks into 
the village. He sees a dead corpse, and hears a 
voice, calling him. 

VILLAGE
Run down from the camera angle and down a set of 
stairs. You'll see a 
cut-scene with a wounded man. Suddenly, the poor 
guy is attacked by 
three soldiers, engaging you into battle. You 
will begin battling them, 
so use your sword and slash them all to pieces. 
They fall after one hit, 
but get up after a while, so make sure they're 
dead. After the battle, 
run all the way down under a red entrance pier 
toward the forest area. 
Go through the door at the end.

FOREST PATH
Run to the left and kill a few more soldiers. 
Check the chest across the 
bridge for a FOREST MAP. You'll hear someone 
calling Jubei, too, so 
follow the path. Go through a double door at the 
end.

SPRING
Watch the cut-scene by walking forward.  A door 
opens, and a woman 
continues to call for your voice. To the left of 
the spring is a MAGIC 
MIRROR where you can save your game and upgrade, 
just like the first 
Onimusha. But for now, move across the stones and 
through the cave door. 

CAVE
Walk straight down the cave, and pass that purple 
glowing light. You'll 
see something rise from the ground, but continue 
down the cave. Go 
through the double doors at the end.

POND HOUSE
You'll see that a purple light turn into a woman, 
who has been calling 
you. She immobilizes Jubei and makes a symbol in 
his hand. She then 
tells a story and you get some kind of SPHERE and 
a file, which tells 
about the controls in the game. To the left is a 
chest with a HERB 
inside of it. Like the Resident Evil/BioHazard 
series, GREEN HERBS heal 
some of your health. Return through the door you 
went through.

CAVE
Run back through here to the SPRING. On your way, 
you'll get attacked by 
a few soldiers, but this time after killing them, 
you can absorb their 
souls by pressing X after they die. That purple 
sphere you saw earlier 
contains souls that you can absorb. 

SPRING
Skip across the stones again, and there's a chest 
hidden in the trees 
with a GREEN HERB. Go to the MAGIC MIRROR. Watch 
the cut-scene, and 
you'll get a new sword, which I only the last 
part's pronunciation 
because it's Katakana. Watch the following cut-
scene. You'll see a cut-
scene in the village. Jubei will be there, and 
will practically kick a 
few guys' asses. 

**************************************************
**********************
VILLAGE EXPLORATION
**************************************************
**********************

VILLAGE STREET
Run up the stairs you see in the distance.

VILLAGE MARKET
The chest nearby holds some kind of SPHERE in a 
holder. Run through the 
area and exit on the other side. 

VILLAGE BARN
Run around and talk to everyone, and then exit 
the room. 

VILLAGE MARKET
Run across back to the VILLAGE STREET.

VILLAGE STREET
Run across the area and through the open door at 
the end.

GEAR HOUSE
To your left, flip a switch to lower a lift. Then 
turn right and run 
across until you hit a barrel. Slash it with your 
sword, proceed, and 
slash all other barrels with the sword.  If the 
lift rises before you 
can get on, use the switch pull again to lower 
it. Inside the chest is a 
PAPER. Ride the lift up to a yellow chest with a 
BOW and ARROWS. Now 
ride the lift down and exit the room.

VILLAGE STREET
The chest nearby has a VILLAGE MAP. Run left of 
the GEAR HOUSE and up a 
small flight of stairs.

FOREST STAIRPATH
Run up and kill every soldier you see. On the 
chest to the left is a 
TELESCOPE. Continue up the pathway and up the 
stairs.

WOODED AREA
Some man is blocking you from going further, so 
return down the stairs.

FOREST STAIRPATH
On your way back to the VILLAGE STREET, more 
soldiers will come, so kill 
them all and absorb their souls.

VILLAGE STREET
Run to the middle of the area and through an open 
door. It is a shop.

VILLAGE BUILDING
Run up and watch a cut-scene. Once it ends, go up 
the stairs in this 
room. You'll see a chest with a FAN in it. Go 
back downstairs, and run 
to that spiked haired man. Run up to him, press 
start, and use the FAN 
on him. You'll get BERRIES from him. To the left 
of the stairs, you'll 
see a man guarding a door. Talk to him, and give 
him $100. You'll get a 
NOTE. Run to an outside area in this room. There 
is a MAGIC MIRROR where 
you can save the game and upgrade your items. 
Upgrade your new SWORD. 
Exit the room.

VILLAGE STREET
Return to the FOREST STAIRPATH.

FOREST STAIRPATH
There will be more soldiers for you to battle, 
but Jubei will be able to 
take care of them by now. Run up to the WOODED 
AREA.

WOODED AREA
The man will now let you pass. Run up to the 
chest to get a BOOK. Run 
into the tunnel to see a cut-scene. Then run 
forward.

**************************************************
**********************
CAVE AREAS
**************************************************
**********************

WOODED CAVE
Run forward to the MAGIC MIRROR and save, and 
upgrade. Run forward into 
the tunnel to the left of the MAGIC MIRROR.

WOODED CAVE TUNNEL
The chest nearby has a SCROLL in it. Now run up 
to the other chest and 
there's a puzzle to solve.

************
CHEST PUZZLE
************

There are 4 arrows. There are 2 on the right hand 
side and 2 on the 
bottom side. Press the TOP ARROW on the right 
side, and the LEFT ARROW 
on the bottom side. You'll get another SCROLL. 
Now return to the WOODED 
CAVE. 

WOODED CAVE
Now take the tunnel right of the MAGIC MIRROR.

WOODEN BAMBOO TUNNEL
Walk up to the man and offer him your BERRIES. 
You'll get MEDICINE in 
return. Proceed further down the tunnel, and in 
the chest is a TUNNEL 
MAP. Proceed into another tunnel.

ALLIGATOR TUNNEL
You'll see a cut-scene with a new monster. It is 
the ALLIGATOR. The four 
of them are vicious, so watch out and use the 
TRIANGLE BUTTON as well as 
the SQUARE BUTTON to attack them. After killing 
them, proceed into the 
next tunnel.

ALLIGATOR TUNNEL 2
Run up, and kill more ALLIGATORS. When you reach 
a fork, take the right 
path. 

ALLIGATOR TUNNEL 3
Run up, and kill all the ALLIGATORS. You'll then 
watch a cut-scene where 
people help you out. The game will resume with 
someone helping you. 
Continue fighting off ALLIGATORS. After it ends, 
watch another cut-
scene. Follow everyone, after the cut-scene. 

CAVE TEMPLE
In the chest on the right is a SCROLL. Run up to 
the podium and you'll 
see a cut-scene. You'll get a new weapon. It's a 
LONG SPEAR. It is super 
powerful. Return to the previous room.

ALLIGATOR TUNNEL 3
Fight off more ALLIGATORS with your new LONG 
SPEAR. You'll get less orbs 
for using the powerful weapon, so switch to the 
SWORD you usually use 
just in case. Return to ALLIGATOR TUNNEL 2.

ALLIGATOR TUNNEL 2
Remember the fork? Well, take the other path now.

GLOWING OBJECT ROOM
Watch the cut-scene, and you'll see a YELLOW 
JEWEL on the ground. Grab 
it, and head to the glowing object blocking an 
exit. Hit it with your 
LONG SPEAR. Then proceed down. 

LONG TUNNEL
Run forward, and you'll see a chest with MEDICINE 
inside. Further down 
is a MAGIC MIRROR. Save and upgrade if you want. 
Further down is a stone 
door. You'll use a BLUE ORB to open it, so go 
through.

MACHINE ROOM
Watch the cut-scene with the first boss of the 
game.

--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
BOSS # 1: GINGAMFATTSU
DIFFICULTY: HARD
Well, take your SWORD and start slashing the hell 
out of the thing from 
behind. When you take control of Jubei, make sure 
you hit it fast and 
hard. It will block many shots it's facing. Don't 
be afraid to use GREEN 
HERBS to heal damage. 

At some point, the vicious monster will jump, so 
move out of the way to 
compensate. Keep hacking and slashing. Use the 
TRIANGLE BUTTON sword 
move, too. It'll also suck you up, so try to 
defend against it, because 
it'll swipe you.

Eventually, the guy you saw earlier will show up 
to help, when the 
monster's really, REALLY pissed off. During the 
battle, don't forget to 
absorb souls. 

When the monster's pissed, don't be afraid to use 
the TRIANGLE BUTTON. 
It'll take a lot of hits to kill the monster. 
You'll need to use A LOT 
of healing items. 

Eventually, the monster will die after a load of 
assault. It'll give off 
a lot of orbs and jewels. Follow that guy into 
the tunnel.

CABINET PUZZLE

Thankfully, Gahleon from the GameFAQS Onimusha 2 
Message Board helped me 
out with this one. The first option you get is 
UP. Press the UP option 3 
times. Then the second option, DOWN, should be 
pressed twice. Then press 
the LEFT option 2 times, and the RIGHT option 
once. A secret ladder will 
be revealed, so have Jubei descend into it.

UNDERGROUND TUNNEL
Run down the tunnel. You'll see a cut-scene where 
Jubei nearly falls 
down a trap, but luckily, he can jumps out of the 
way. Proceed forward 
(Jubei will jump over the hole). There are 3 
ropes at the end. So break 
them, and a trap will be sprung. Run back to the 
hole and cross it so 
Jubei will be hanging on the edge. Wait until the 
blade bypasses Jubei 
so you can run down to where the blade was. To 
the right is the exit.

CLIFFSIDE
Save and upgrade your items if you must. There 
are crocodile creatures 
here, so be aware. After killing all the 
creatures, you'll see a chest 
you can't open. Along the way is a spinning blue 
wheel. Use your sword 
(second item in weapons section) and slash it for 
a NOBUNAGA TROPHY 2. 
Run forward, and up the ladder. Continue down the 
path and you'll see a 
blocked cave we need to unlock. Continue up the 
ladder nearby. Run 
forward and continue up the ladder.

MOUNTAINSIDE BRIDGE
Run across the bridge and use your SPEAR to kill 
those big creatures. 
They aren't hard to kill. Head down the stairs.

MOUNTAINSIDE PATH
There is a chest nearby you can open. Inside is a 
GREEN HERB which you 
might need right now, although you can save it. 
Head down to find 
another chest with a MAP inside it. Further down 
is a shrine of some 
sort. Have Jubei put his hand inside for another 
cut-scene. Jubei will 
get a new weapon, which is really powerful. I 
like to call it the BLADE. 
Nearby, you can save and upgrade. Try to upgrade 
your sword. 

MOUNTAINSIDE FOREST PATH
Test out your new BLADE by killing every monster 
in this room for orbs. 
You'll notice that Jubei's gotten a little faster 
and his new weapon is 
really powerful. Go further along the path.

MOUNTAINSIDE ILLUSION FOREST PATH 
Go down, and you'll be presented with 2 paths to 
take. Take the path to 
the right. 

MOUNTAINSIDE FOREST PATH 2
Kill all the monsters here. Then proceed down.

MOUNTAINSIDE FOREST PATH 
We're back here again, but how??? (I smell 
another Devil May Cry here!). 
Take the left path this time.

MOUNTAINSIDE FOREST PATH 3
Kill all monsters, and then proceed down the path.

MOUNTAINSIDE FOREST PATH 
OK, defeat that yellow creature. Then the real 
path will be revealed. 
Continue down the next few pathways, repeating 
this pattern. Defeat all 
the enemies, the yellow creatures, etc. in order 
to get to the real 
pathway. Along the way, a lot of those SHILEDED 
WARRIORS will appear, so 
dodge them. (You should go back and save before 
proceeding).

MOUNTAINSIDE FOREST PATH 2
When the music changes, you're out of that stupid 
illusion. Move forward 
to watch a cut-scene with that Umbrella woman. 
You'll then have to face 
Boss # 1 again.

--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
BOSS # 3: GINGAMFATTSU
DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM
He isn't nearly as difficult as before. What you 
want to do is hit him 
as much as you can, and if Jubei gets hit, heal 
him if you have the 
items. Use the BLADE because it is a very quick 
weapon against him. When 
he runs into the bushes, just keep running back 
and forth to avoid 
getting rammed by it. When it stops, just slash 
it like hell. Try to 
absorb orbs as you go, and eventually Jubei will 
defeat this evil 
creature. If it is too hard, try to get Jubei's 
BLADE to Level 2 so he 
can have more powerful attacks.
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------

Once GINGAMFATTSU is defeated, run back to the 
Save Point and use all 
your Souls to enhance your weapons and armor. 
Move forward to save the 
game. Continue moving through the forest past 
where you defeated 
GINGAMFATTSU. 

MONSTER LAKE
There is another Save Point. Kill these Serpent 
Creatures in the water. 
They aren't too hard. Run across the puddle 
through the door.

SPIKE ROOM
In this room, you should have a NOBUNAGA TROPHY. 
Insert it into the slot 
in the wall up ahead. Then take the path left of 
the lake.

DIRTPATH
Run forward passed all the monsters until you get 
to the blue spinning 
wheel. Equip the SWORD (second weapon in your 
weapons inventory). Then 
hack at the blue spinning wheel. Behind it is yet 
another NOBUNAGA 
TROPHY. Return to the MONSTER LAKE.

MONSTER LAKE
Run across the puddle through the door.

SPIKE ROOM
Run forward and pull the lever. Then you'll see 
three images of 
Nobunaga, that evil prick from the first Onimusha 
(and the start of the 
game). You'll notice those images are of the 3 
NOBUNAGA TROPHIES you 
have. The NOBUNAGA TROPHY with him crossing his 
arms across his chest 
should go in the first slot. The NOBUNAGA TROPHY 
where he's standing 
straight goes in the middle, and the final 
NOBUNAGA TROPHY goes in the 
last slot. If you miss, the spikes will try to 
crush you. Solving the 
puzzle will open up a stairway. Go back to the 
MONSTER LAKE and save 
your game; then go back here and descend down. 

**************************************************
**********************
PROCEEDING FURTHER
**************************************************
**********************

UNDERGROUND TUNNEL
Run forward and press TRIANGLE to defeat the big 
creature. Then go 
through the door. 

UNDERGROUND TUNNEL 2
Proceed forward. Then kill every monster 
including that green tentacle 
thing. Slash with the BLADE. Once they're all 
dead, upgrade your BLADE 
or any weapon or armor you want to upgrade, and 
then proceed forward. 
Save the game, too. Proceed through the door.

UNDERGROUND ROOM
Watch the cut-scene with that weird woman. Then 
you finally get to 
battle her. 

--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
BOSS # 4: UMBRELLA WOMAN
Now we get to battle her. Her umbrella serves as 
a defense mechanism so 
slash at her defenseless areas. She sends little 
orbs your way, which 
hurt Jubei. Keep attacking her. She can sometimes 
teleport but the room 
is fairly small so as long as Jubei keeps moving, 
it doesn't matter. 
Eventually, slashing and healing enough will kill 
that crazy woman. 
Jubei will get a lot of orbs and another one of 
those little BLUE 
SPHERES which Jubei is out to collect. 
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------

UNDERGROUND TUNNEL 2
Upgrade your weapons and armor with all the orbs 
you might have 
collected. Then save the game. Then return to the 
UNDERGROUND ROOM.

UNDERGROUND ROOM
Run to the little red button glowing on the wall 
and press it to reveal 
another tunnel. Go through. 

UNDERGROUND TUNNEL 3
In the chest is a GREEN HERB. All of a sudden, 
the room spews with gas. 
Run out of there as fast as you can. Then when 
you reach the outside, 
watch a cut-scene and Jubei ends up in a CAVERN.

CAVERN
Run forward to the chest to grab another scroll. 
Then examine that 
yellow thing in the room. Save your game as well. 
When examining the 
yellow thing, just say YES (left option, HAI, as 
always). Then watch the 
cut-scene to end up on a beach.

BEACH
Another cut-scene will reveal that swordsman from 
before, GORGAN DANTES. 
You'll have to battle him again.

--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
BOSS # 5: GORGAN DANTES
DIFFICULTY: HARD
This thing will avoid your attacks fairly easily. 
Also, normal attacks 
won't work. This is an extremely difficult boss. 
Just try to fight the 
monster off until that woman shows up. The battle 
is over... (Boss battle 
is basically the same as before)
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------
--------------------------------------------------
----------------------

Watch the cut-scene that follows. Watch Oyuu's 
cut-scene with that genie 
girl from before.

STAFF of some sort. Then 
go back through the SPINE TUNNELS. Return to the

Talk to Jubei. Oyuu will give the GOLDEN STAFF to 
Jubei. If you got the

which can help him 
upgrade by a lot!!

**********************

TEMPLE ROOM
Kill all the monsters here. You can kill those 
bow-and-arrow crocodiles 
by using the BOW AND ARROWS you got a long time 
ago. Upgrade Jubei's 
BLADE (it should be at level 3 by now if you've 
been following the 
walkthrough). Save the game as well. Now go to 
TEMPLE ROOM 2.

TEMPLE ROOM 2
Run to the very end of the room, kill every enemy 
with the BLADE and 
under the ceiling fan, press TRIANGLE to activate 
the ceiling fan. The 
lift nearby will start working. So ride it down.

4. STORY

==================================================
======================

10 years ago...

A lone warrior named Samanosuke, and his 
companion, Kaede, went to the 
village, to discover than Princess Yuki was 
kidnapped. Finding his way 
through caves, monsters, and traps, he managed to 
find Princess Yuki and 
a boy she took care of, and gets lost in a battle 
with an insane beast. 

No one knows what ever happened to Samanosuke... 
but at the end, he's 
seen, overlooking a castle, alive. 

Now, 10 years later...

NOTE: This is judging from the scenes in the 
game. If anyone has a 
translated synopsis, please tell me!

A village in feudal Japan starts the day off as 
usual, until an army 
attacks it. People are killed one by one. A 
woman, protecting her child, 
is stomped on. People try to aimlessly defend the 
village, but people 
are burned, skewered and murdered, gruesomely. 

A lone warrior, Yagyu Jubei, walks into the 
village, angry at what 
happened, and vows to get revenge. He hears a 
woman call his name, and 
follows the noise to a cave, where he is granted 
powers to absorb 
spirits, and save the village.

======================

6. MONSTER/BOSS LIST
 
==================================================
======================

SOLDIER
Wielding a sword, these guys are a little hard to 
kill. Slash them up 
repeatedly and try to stab them when they're on 
the ground. They give 
moderate amounts of orbs.

ALLIGATOR
These are pretty dangerous, but not too dangerous 
as a whole. Quickly 
slash at them for more souls, and use the 
TRIANGLE BUTTON on them. There 
are a lot of them in areas.

MASKED WOMAN
They fight a lot like SOLDIERS, and are a little 
weaker in stamina, too. 
They like to flip away, though. Attack them with 
the LONG SPEAR for 
maximum results.

SKELETON WARRIORS
These guys are tough, but not too tough when you 
use Jubei's special 
attack through the TRIANGLE BUTTON. They inflict 
a lot of pain, but an 
aggressive special attack will kill them before 
they can realize what 
hit them.

ROLLING MONSTERS
Like the first Onimusha, their attacks when 
rolling are hard to avoid. 
Use the LONG SPEAR against them to stop them in 
their tracks, and then 
hit them fast and hard when they're vulnerable. 

SOUL ABSORBING MONSTERS
They might be too high for Jubei to kill, but try 
using the LONG SPEAR. 
After they die, which is a fairly easy thing to 
do, they release the 
souls they stole from you. Capture the souls. 

SHEILDED WARRIOR
These guys are great at blocking Jubei's attacks. 
So use Jubei's special 
attacks with the TRIANGLE BUTTON to kill them 
instantly.

GIANT GENIE CREATURES
These guys are big, but they can still get hurt 
easily. Hit them fast 
before they hit Jubei with those logs they wield. 
They give a 
considerable amount of orbs.

YELLOW FLYING CREATURE
These guys appear in the forest. They are easy to 
defeat.

======================

A. ONIMUSHA GAMES
-----------------

ONIMUSHA 2: SAMURAI'S DESTINY
RELEASE DATE: March 2002 (Japan); August 2002 
(USA)
PLATFORM: Sony PlayStation 2
One of the best looking PlayStation 2 games, 
Onimusha 2: Samurai's 
Destiny, has been the best selling PS2 game in 
2002. Featuring character 
Jubei Yagyu (or Yagyu Jubei, my interpretation of 
the Japanese speech is 
weak), you sword sling through the game once 
again. 

ONIMUSHA: WARLORDS
RELEASE DATE: Spring 2001
PLATFORM: Sony PlayStation 2
Onimusha: Warlords is an action game in feudal 
Japan. Featuring 
Samanosuke, he had to rescue Princess Yuki. The 
game was extremely 
successful; it was the first PS2 game to sell 1 
Million in Japan and the 
US. Though the graphics seemed a little dated 
compared to Resident Evil 
CODE: Veronica X (released for the PS2 and 
Dreamcast around the same 
time in Japan), it was because the game was meant 
to be on both 
PlayStation and N64. Since then, it has spawned 
re-releases under the 
"Mega Hits" label in Japan, the "Greatest Hits" 
label in the US and the 
"Platinum" label in Europe.

GENMA ONIMUSHA
RELEASE DATE: Early 2002
PLATFORM: Microsoft XBOX
Microsoft decided to enter the console wars in 
early 2001. Their ultra-
powerful XBOX can do graphical effects the 
PlayStation 2 can't do. 
Capcom, being the company they are, usually takes 
advantage of their 
more successful games- by porting them to another 
console. And with the 
XBOX's awesome power, they did just that. Making 
the game much more 
difficult and adding new graphical effects, 
bosses, etc., Capcom re-
released the game for XBOX. It is basically the 
hardest version yet. If 
Genma Onimusha were translated, it would mean 
Extremely Difficult Demon 
Slaying (correct me if I'm wrong; my Japanese is 
weak). It says it all- 
this is ultimately a harder version of the PS2 
Onimusha: Warlords.  

B. MY REVIEW

8. CONCLUSION

==================================================
======================

Well, this FAQ is somewhat incomplete right now, 
but I'm trying my very 
best to beat and master the Japanese version of 
this awesome game. If 
anyone is fluent in Japanese, and would like to 
help me out by 
translating items, storyline information, etc., 
please e-mail me, and 
help will be greatly appreciated.
