To see cut scenes from stages you have beaten
collect 10 or 20 gold clan coins.
After getting a lot of people in one combo (each
thing adds a little time) of like 10, when the
camera goes at different angles, there are more
cooler special effects.
Death To The Helicopter
You know that annoying helicopter that is one of
the first few bosses? It can be easily defeated
without having to repeatedly jump. All you have
to do is get under it and double jump, dash,
slash. You can dash after each hit with your
sword and get in multiple fast hits.
A rather easy way to defeat any Boss in the game is to wait until seven or more
of their helpers have been summoned. Basically, when you see eight or more of
those orbs at the top right hand side of the screen, perform Tate and any Boss in
the game will die. Note: You will not get seven or more minions to spawn at
certain Bosses, such as the two helicopters and the giant spider at 3B.
Defeating The Last Boss
Attack the crows (the things which shoot out fireballs). Wait until you have
about eight crows at once. When you defeat the crows, you should have a pink
waves around it. Attack him when you reach that level. Any other color will
result in no effect. Keep doing this and you should defeat him.
Defeating Boss 6B
If you can wait until the Boss lets out the seven little heads, kill them to get
a full powered Akujiki. Then, just slash the Boss once and he will die.
Defeating Bosses 3A Through 8B
Wait until all of the henchmen appear (about eight spheres should appear at the
top right of the screen). Then, kill all of them as if you were going for a Tate.
Akujiki should turn bright red after you kill seven of the henchmen. The
difficult part is getting the Boss to stay still after your sword turns red. This
may take a few attempts, but you will get a huge Boss bonus for killing them with
Defeating Boss 3B
This is the spider boss, by far the easiest. Dodge its attacks and wait patiently
for its little hench-spiders to pop out. Quickly dispatch all four and head for
the Boss. It is absolutely necessary that Akujiki is glowing red. Jump up at the
Boss and slash at the weak spot on its back. If done correctly, you should go
into a tate in mid air, and all five enemies will die.
Defeating Boss 3A
You can either defeat the five or six dogs then attack him with the glowing
Akujiki sword, or just run past the dogs and hit him from the side. You can hit
him about three times before he retreats into his take-out box. Hitting him in
the side causes more damage than hitting him from the front. He recovers after he
returns from hiding.

damage does less than when playing as Hotsuma, however his shurikens are
unlimited in number, do more damage, but do not stun. Also, since he does not use
the Akujiki sword, his energy does not drain constantly.
Play As Moritsune
Collect 30 Oboro Clan Coins during the game to unlock Moritsune. Moritsune is
Hotsuma's brother, and is stronger and faster. However, the Akujiki sword will
drain him more.
