The game oozed with style, excellent gameplay, and a unique<br/><br/>sense of humor. This carried them through several subsequent iterations of the<br/><br/>series on multiple platforms.<br/><br/>Now, three years later, Clover Studio have blasted onto the scene once again<br/><br/>with the tale of a god out to save the world. Okami released on September 19,<br/><br/>2006.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 1.2 Story<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Here we have the epic quest of a god reborn in the human world to save them<br/><br/>from a foul beast, a beast which would stop at nothing to cover the world of<br/><br/>Nippon in darkness. This god is Okami Amaterasu. Amaterasu's quest to stop the<br/><br/>evil Orochi will transcend that which you have ever experienced and take you<br/><br/>across a world which has been robbed of color and life. Your mission as<br/><br/>Amaterasu is to restore that life... and save the world from="=" 2.0 THE BASICS="<br/"><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 2.1 Game Start<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Press Start to Begin the Story<br/><br/>New="<br/"><br/>Select this to begin a new="<br/"><br/>Load a saved="<br/"><br/>Adjust several options, including:<br/><br/>- Camera<br/><br/>- Vibration<br/><br/>- BGM (Background Music) Volume<br/><br/>- SE (Sound Effects) Volume<br/><br/>- Sound Output<br/><br/>- Video Output<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 2.2 Saving/Loading<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>To save the game, approach any Origin mirror in the game.

Enter the brilliant light at the base of the tree.<br/><br/>River of the="<br/"><br/>Proceed North across the field and over the bridge. As you pass by the bridge<br/><br/>you'll be asked to Save your progress in the Origin mirror, which I would also<br/><br/>suggest.<br/><br/>Continue northward and break the group of pots for some cold hard Yen in your<br/><br/>pouch, then swing a right and get to the cliff. Here you'll be required to<br/><br/>jump high then press jump against the wall to jump higher, over the edge to<br/><br/>the chest. Bust it open to get a Holy Bone S, then take some time to break<br/><br/>the scattered pots and clay horses.<br/><br/>Once you're set, continue north to the broken bridge. Issun will show off his<br/><br/>one brush power called Rejuvenation by filling in the gap on the bridge. Cross<br/><br/>over and follow the path to the right. This will take you up a hill. Witness<br/><br/>Issun's failed attempt at painting a star then give it a shot yourself to<br/><br/>complete the pattern.<br/><br/>After the scene you will be given the power of Rejuvenation, just like Issun.<br/><br/>Run back down to the riverbed and hold R1 to enter the brush screen. Hold<br/><br/>Square and brush the area between your side of the river and the other side<br/><br/>to fill it in and complete the stardust river.<br/><br/>Swim across to the torches at the other end and open the chest to get the<br/><br/>Astral Pouch. The pouch is used to gather food, and if you happen to die when<br/><br/>the pouch is full your health will be completely restored. Bash open the<br/><br/>scattered pots to find Yen and some food.<br/><br/>Enter the light in the tunnel to continue.<br/><br/>Cave of="<br/"><br/>Proceed north up the hill and over the bridge. Make sure to explore around the<br/><br/>river to get pots and a chest before continuing down the path. Explore around<br/><br/>on the other side of the rock overhang to find more pots and goodies, and when<br/><br/>you're ready proceed up the path to the Cave of Nagi.<br/><br/>Inside here you'll find a few pots and one big, wrecked statue. It's time to<br/><br/>employ that handy Rejuvenation brush power. Go into brush mode and brush up<br/><br/>along the length of the sword to fill it in. This will fill in the sword, which<br/><br/>points up to the constellation of the Tachigami, the mouse.<br/><br/>Tachigami will now teach you the Power Slash brush power. This can be used to<br/><br/>cut through objects or enemies with a single line from your celestial brush.<br/><br/>Use that power to cut the boulder, then exit the cave. Use it again to cut<br/><br/>through the gate.<br/><br/>Run down the hill and chop down every tree along the way to collect food and<br/><br/>Yen. At the bottom you'll have to face off against a few enemies within a<br/><br/>circle of flame. Use the Divine Retribution reflector (Square button) to attack<br/><br/>them, as well as the Power Slash brush power. Continue down the path while<br/><br/>chopping down everything until you get near the next gate, where another battle<br/><br/>will ensue. Use the same techniques to defeat them.<br/><br/>Run through the gate to exit.<br/><br/>River of the="<br/"><br/>Run all the way down the path to the next gate.<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>Get the peach in full view and use Power Slash to cut it down from the branch.<br/><br/>The peach will fall and explode into a wave of light and green, returning the<br/><br/>village of Kamiki to its former splendor. Proceed down the path.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.2 Restoring Kamiki Village<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>As you run down you'll see a frozen villager and a path to the left. Run up<br/><br/>that side path to get an overhead view of the village. Return to the main<br/><br/>path and head into the village.<br/><br/>Investigate a few of the frozen villagers, including the little woman on the<br/><br/>pier near the river, then return to the sacred deck above the hill. From here,<br/><br/>Issun will talk about painting the sun in the sky. Bring out the Celestial<br/><br/>Brush and draw a circle to give it a shot.<br/><br/>Ah, the sun! She returns!<br/><br/>Mr. Orange from the village will then approach and talk to you for a bit before<br/><br/>some imps appear to battle you. Attack them with Square and use Power Slash to<br/><br/>defeat them all. Collect all items dropped by them. Afterwards, explore around<br/><br/>the pond to discover a chest and some fruit in the pond. Head down the hill and<br/><br/>return to the village.<br/><br/>On your way back you may notice that the guy with the helmet is now awake. Talk<br/><br/>to him to initiate a timed battle with some imps. At the end of the battle<br/><br/>Komuso will tell you how long it took you to defeat the imps.<br/><br/>Once you enter the village you'll notice that the villagers and surroundings<br/><br/>have returned to their normal state. Run around and get a feel for the place<br/><br/>by breaking objects, using Power Slash on everything, and talking to the<br/><br/>people. <br/><br/>Talk to the gentleman at the end of the road who is trying to push the boulders<br/><br/>and you'll get a scene introducing a new enemy called a red imp. Defeat the<br/><br/>green imps then use Power Slash to break the big guy's lute. Follow that up<br/><br/>with a barrage of reflector attacks and he'll quickly fade away.<br/><br/>With that and any earlier praise you've accumulated you can now upgrade some<br/><br/>Divine Attributes. Do what Issun says and use the points for the attribute of<br/><br/>your choice (I would suggest upgrading your solar energy). Afterwards the<br/><br/>Merchant will ask you to go get Susano so he can move the boulders. Head back<br/><br/>to the village and hang a sharp right to find Susano's place. Just follow the<br/><br/>snoring.<br/><br/>When inside, tackle the jug to open a secret stairwell. Head down to find<br/><br/>Susano asleep, er, "meditating". One tackle should snap him out of his trance.<br/><br/>Take him with you back to the Merchant, only to hear some gibberish about more<br/><br/>training. If you follow Susano back to his training area he'll tell you he<br/><br/>needs sake to do any training. I'm not sure what a drunk warrior can do, but<br/><br/>let's help him out.<br/><br/>Go to Kushi the sake brewer who can be found in a rice pond on the other side<br/><br/>of the path. Talk to her a few times to hear her talk about her busted<br/><br/>watermill and her inability to make good sake without it. Let's help the young<br/><br/>maiden, shall we? Head over to the mill and use Rejuvenation by filling in the<br/><br/>broken area with your brush. This will restore the mill so Kushi can keep<br/><br/>brewing her sweet, sweet sake. Head inside the mill and collect the jug of<br/><br/>sake from her, then take the sake over to Susano so he can begin his training.<br/><br/>Susano may be tough, but he's not tough enough to slice through some dummies<br/><br/>and a boulder on his own. Each time Susano slashes an object, use Power Slash<br/><br/>to slice through it. With his slash and yours combined you can cut through<br/><br/>the two dummies and the large boulder without a problem. Next up are the large<br/><br/>boulders blocking the village entrance. Use the same Power Slash when Susano<br/><br/>attacks the boulder to open the path and be rid of Susano (for now).<br/><br/>Explore the village thoroughly and buy or sell items from the Merchant if you<br/><br/>need to, then leave Kamiki Village.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.3 Guardian Sapling at Hana Valley<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Your first taste of the world outside Kamiki. For the moment this field is<br/><br/>mostly cursed, however if you hang a left (north-west on the map) you'll meet<br/><br/>a Nameless Man. Along the way I suggest you stop at the green flags to battle<br/><br/>some imps for items and the oh-so-precious Yen.<br/><br/>Talk to the Nameless Man and he'll describe what happened to him. Talk to him<br/><br/>again to get the whereabouts of Susano. All signs point to the Hana Valley to<br/><br/>the north-east of the house, so run up and enter the cave.<br/><br/>Hana="<br/"><br/>Run up the path and save, then proceed towards the next cave. Make sure and<br/><br/>grab the chest on the left side before the log bridge. As you reach the cave<br/><br/>you'll come across a dance troupe of imps. Use Power Slash and your trusty<br/><br/>reflector to defeat them.<br/><br/>As you continue up the road you'll meet some old trees who like to toss fruit<br/><br/>at you. Use Power Slash to deflect the fruit back at them and stun them. Run<br/><br/>past them and over the rickety rope bridge to reach the next ledge.<br/><br/>Take a right and enter the large area with markings on the ground to engage in<br/><br/>battle with some green imps and a new yellow imp!<br/><br/>Start by defeating the green imps, then switch your focus to the yellow imp. It<br/><br/>attacks by coming up under you and hitting the drum (while you're on it). Get<br/><br/>behind it and use reflector attacks until it vanishes, then avoid it when it<br/><br/>comes up and repeat the process. After you defeat it you'll reunite with ol'<br/><br/>Susano.<br/><br/>Ignore Susano for now and go take a look at the painting on the cliff wall.<br/><br/>Issun will point out the missing sun in the corner, so whip out the brush and<br/><br/>paint a nice big circle in there to complete the painting.<br/><br/>Inner Hana="<br/"><br/>This will move that large boulder out of the way and give you (and Susano) a<br/><br/>way further into the valley. Follow the path through the cave and into the<br/><br/>altar area ahead. Explore all you like but there isn't much you can do here...<br/><br/>yet. Use Power Slash to clear the gate on the left and continue.<br/><br/>Follow the path into the next cave to once again meet up with Susano. The<br/><br/>sleepy bear seems to have snuck into Susano's training spot and it's left him<br/><br/>rather irate. It's time for Susano-Style! Like last time, use Power Slash each<br/><br/>time he slashes an object, and so the same for the bear slash. That'll knock<br/><br/>the snoring beast off of its perch.<br/><br/>With Susano's mission accomplished he'll run off again, leaving you with the<br/><br/>sphere and a sleeping bear. Take the sphere and roll it back to the altar<br/><br/>room, then roll it up the hill and onto that small puddle. If we follow the<br/><br/>painting, the final step is to get the sun to shine down onto the sphere. Stand<br/><br/>near the sapling and use Sunrise to bring the sun into the sky above.<br/><br/>This will bring the Guardian Sapling from its meager existence as a sprout<br/><br/>to... its mediocre existence as a withered tree. However, things are looking up<br/><br/>once a new constellation appears. First draw a line between all the dots, then<br/><br/>fill in each star to bring out Sakigami the monkey. This god will grant you<br/><br/>the power of Greensprout-Bloom, which can be used to bring withered flora back<br/><br/>to life. Use the brush technique on the Guardian Sapling to rejuvenate not only<br/><br/>the tree, but all of Hana Valley as well.<br/><br/>Now it's time to return to Hana valley proper.<br/><br/>Hana="<br/"><br/>Head down the path to the entrance of Hana Valley. You'll face some imps<br/><br/>along the way that you'll need to defeat to restore all of Hana Valley back to<br/><br/>normal. It's all enemies you've faced already, so blow through them to move<br/><br/>along.<br/><br/>You'll also get lots of opportunities to try out the new Bloom technique. Use<br/><br/>it on stunned old trees and cursed patches of grass to restore them and<br/><br/>gradually return Hana Valley to normal.<br/><br/>By the time you reach the exit you should have enough Praise points to upgrade<br/><br/>an attribute. Go to the Fan menu and boost something up before continuing to<br/><br/>Shinshu Field.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.4 Kamiki Village Detour: Sexy Babe!<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Run out and talk to Nameless Man if you want to hear about the river's<br/><br/>miraculous return, then proceed to the Guardian Sapling in the middle of the<br/><br/>field. This will bring the sapling back to full bloom and eliminate the cursed<br/><br/>zone all across Shinshu Field.<br/><br/>At this point Shinshu Field is totally free for you to explore... but let's<br/><br/>take a slight detour. Collect anything you can near the tree then head back<br/><br/>to Kamiki Village. Ignore Issun's pleading to remain in Shinshu Field...<br/><br/>trust me.<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>After gaining the Bloom brush power in Hana Valley, use Bloom on all the cursed<br/><br/>trees in the village, along the path up the hill, and up near the sacred deck.<br/><br/>Once they are all restored go talk to Mr. Orange at the sacred deck and he <br/><br/>will initiate the Konohana Shuffle. Each time he poses and the view switches to<br/><br/>a flower bulb, use Bloom on the bulb to release the full flower bloom.<br/><br/>Continue until Sakuya appears to thank you.<br/><br/>Immediately after Sakuya leaves, you'll get the constellation for Hasugami<br/><br/>the monkey. Fill in the stars to restore him and get the Water Lily brush<br/><br/>power. This grants you the power to create lily pads that you can use to cross<br/><br/>large bodies of water. Use that to get the chest from that island.<br/><br/>That's about it for any main stuff at Kamiki Village. Check the side quests<br/><br/>for other things you can get at the village, then when you're ready return to<br/><br/>Shinshu Field.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.5 Adventures in Shinshu Field<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>So, there are quite a few places you can go to from here. There's the<br/><br/>Pyrotechnist's house on the south-east side, Lake Harami and Agata Forest<br/><br/>to the south, and the Dojo to the west. <br/><br/>If you went through Kamiki Village, you know that Issun marked three places<br/><br/>in yellow on your map. Let's go ahead and explore those locations. Start by<br/><br/>running up the western ridge to the="<br/"><br/>Inside the Dojo you'll meet Oginiri Sensei, who will teach you new battle<br/><br/>techniques for the right price. Take a look at what he offers and buy a<br/><br/>technique if you have some spare Yen (4 Winds can be useful for battle, but<br/><br/>Fleetfoot is handy for strategists who like to dodge attacks). Return to<br/><br/>Shinshu when you're good to go.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>The next yellow mark is down at Lake Harami. Head south and look for the large<br/><br/>gate by the shore. Run down and enter the Moon Shrine.<br/><br/>Moon="<br/"><br/>Here, Mika the priest will ask you to help with defeat the wanted monsters on<br/><br/>his list. These monsters only appear at night and are random encounters,<br/><br/>however if you exit the shrine after speaking to Mika you'll get your first<br/><br/>one.<br/><br/>Biwamaru the Vandal will appear just outside the shrine. He's slightly tougher<br/><br/>than an average red imp and packs more health as well, but as long as you<br/><br/>stick to Power Slash followed up by reflector attacks you'll be fine. Once<br/><br/>you defeat him you can return up to the field.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Run to the south-east part of the map to approach Tama the Pyrotechnist's<br/><br/>house. Along the way you'll meet a new enemy called a Dead Fish. These guys<br/><br/>can fly pretty high, so I recommend you jump and use Power Slash to take some<br/><br/>damage and bring it down. While on the ground the Dead Fish may grab onto you<br/><br/>and attack, so quickly user Power Slash to shake it loose. After the battle<br/><br/>is won proceed to the rickety house at the end of the path.<br/><br/>Pyrotechnist's="<br/"><br/>Inside you'll meet Tama, a wound-up pyrotechnist hopped up on caffeine (or it<br/><br/>seems like it). Listen to his rant and pay special attention to the design<br/><br/>on the wall, the one of a circle with a vertical slash across the top. After<br/><br/>he sets the powder in that bowl, use your brush to draw that design around the<br/><br/>powder and set off the fireworks.<br/><br/>The fireworks will then call upon a new constellation: Bakugami the boar! He'll<br/><br/>appear alongside his piglets to teach you Cherry Bomb, a brush power used to<br/><br/>create bombs.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Use your new power to blow up that crack in the wall and get a chest. With that<br/><br/>cleared all of the side stuff in Shinshu Field is done (for now). Head over to<br/><br/>the entrance to Agata Forest. Use Water Lily to cross the river and reach the<br/><br/>other side. Use Cherry Bomb to blow open the crack and enter Agata Forest.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.6 Exploring Agata Forest<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Run west along the path and follow it to the end to reach a safe part of the<br/><br/>shore. Enter inside the cave to discover a hidden (and rather dark) house. Go<br/><br/>inside that house to meet the next character in the strange world of Nippon.<br/><br/>Approach the woman the end of the room to meet Madame Fawn, who can tell the<br/><br/>future by reading bones. After some chit chat, she gets down to business. Pay<br/><br/>her 500 Yen to get a fortune reading.<br/><br/>So, you'll be looking for a crack somewhere that has to be blown up... you<br/><br/>should know what that means. Exit Fawn's place and hang a left past the stairs<br/><br/>that lead up to the path. You should find a narrow ledge lit by torches that<br/><br/>leads around the shore and to a cave behind a waterfall. Enter this cave and<br/><br/>use Cherry Bomb to blow the crack in the wall.<br/><br/>Inside you'll find the Guardian Sapling of Agata Forest. Use that brush of<br/><br/>yours to Bloom that sapling and restore Agata Forest to what it once was.<br/><br/>Collect the Devout Beads from the chest and equip them as your main weapon,<br/><br/>then equip the reflector as your sub-weapon. Return to the forest to continue.<br/><br/>As soon as you step out you'll meet Tao Master Waka, a philosophical french<br/><br/>warrior. He'll go on for a while, but by the end of it he's ready to knock<br/><br/>your fangs out! Prepare for battle!<br/><br/>Tao Master="<br/"><br/>Waka's a fast guy, and if you let him get close he'll really hurt you. Pay<br/><br/>attention to his movements, and if you see him getting ready to charge you<br/><br/>keep your finger on Triangle to block his attack with the reflector. Otherwise,<br/><br/>use the beads to whittle away his health and if he stops use a Cherry Bomb on<br/><br/>him for massive damage.<br/><br/>Continue the relentless beads/Cherry Bomb assault until Waka gives in and ends<br/><br/>the battle. He'll talk some more before waving au' revoire and flying off to<br/><br/>who knows where.<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>The forest is now free and open for exploration. You have Tsuta Ruins to the<br/><br/>south, Taka Pass to the south-west, and Hitoshio Spring to the north. The<br/><br/>spring is optional, and Taka Pass is out of reach due to a washed out bridge,<br/><br/>so the next stop is Tsuta Ruins.<br/><br/>Start by swimming to the southern-most island and talking to the kid. Listen<br/><br/>to his take about his ill-fated adventure in the Tsuta Ruins. After talking to<br/><br/>him a few times, headbutt him to snap him out of his sappy mood. After some<br/><br/>more conversation, you'll now have to help him fish by drawing a line from his<br/><br/>pole to a fish in the water. After you nab one, you'll control Kokari as you<br/><br/>pull left, right, and back on the fishing pole. Press the button that appears<br/><br/>on-screen to bring the fish out, then use Power Slash to finish it off. Keep<br/><br/>fishing until you catch a Giant Salmon.<br/><br/>The salmon will spit out the key needed to enter the Tsuta Ruins. Take it and<br/><br/>quickly head south to the Tsuta Ruins entrance, before Kokari gets a chance<br/><br/>to take it back.<br/><br/>Now, before we proceed, I suggest you visit the merchant and stock up on some<br/><br/>Holy Bones and other items you may need on long trips. Once you're ready, put<br/><br/>the key in to open the gate and enter the ruins.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.7 The Depths of Tsuta Ruins<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Look around to get a feel for the place, then head east to the first room on<br/><br/>the right. Look out for the cursed trees and keep following the path to the<br/><br/>second eastern room in 1F.<br/><br/>In the second eastern room, run to the end and wall jump to get up to the top,<br/><br/>then use a well-placed Water Lily to reach the next ledge. Follow the ledge<br/><br/>up to the top and enter the next room. Run up the small incline to meet a new<br/><br/>enemy called a Bud Ogre. Bud ogres are protected by their bud, so first you'll<br/><br/>have to weaken it. Use Cherry Bombs or deflect the fruits to stun it, then use<br/><br/>Bloom to open the bud. Attack the fruit with your beads to hurt it. Repeat that<br/><br/>process until it is defeated. Roll the newly revealed sphere onto the button<br/><br/>at the end of the room to open the door.<br/><br/>Enter the next area to the east to find another battle with two bud ogres. Try<br/><br/>and group them together, then use Cherry Bombs to blast them and stun them<br/><br/>quickly. Never stay in one spot or you WILL be injured. Once they open up use<br/><br/>some bead whippin' to sap the life away. It will take two or three bouts of<br/><br/>bead whipping to destroy them both, but should you get stuck remember you have<br/><br/>plenty of items in your Tools.<br/><br/>After they are defeated, use Sunrise in the open ceiling above to bring out<br/><br/>the sun and grow the mushrooms on that log. This will open the path that leads<br/><br/>to floor 2F.<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Run into the cave and use a Cherry Bomb on the crack in the wall to blow it<br/><br/>open. Follow the path to return to the statue chamber, then walk forward a bit.<br/><br/>Issun will suddenly get the urge to let out a honkin' sneeze, which of course<br/><br/>triggers the collapse of the bridge you're on! Take off running and jump each<br/><br/>time you hit a break in the road. If you keep jumping you'll barely make it to<br/><br/>the door on the other side.<br/><br/>Continue along until you hit a locked door with a weird looking lock on it.<br/><br/>Ignore it for now and jump along the platforms to the right to get back<br/><br/>down to 1F.<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Talk to Blockhead in the doorway to learn about his weakness. Tackle him, then<br/><br/>watch closely for the two weak points and the order in which they appear.<br/><br/>Use your brush to put a dot on each weak point and blow him up, revealing the<br/><br/>Exorcising Arrow Key. Pick up the key and return to the locked door on floor<br/><br/>2F.<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Open the door and proceed into the next room. Run through and fight the imps<br/><br/>in the blue scroll if you wish, then continue into the mirror room ahead.<br/><br/>Save your game and continue ahead to the next room containing three Devil<br/><br/>Gates. Close the three gates to reveal a log and some mushrooms, and just like<br/><br/>before a little Sunrise will turn those mushrooms into handy dandy platforms.<br/><br/>Hop on them to get up to the ledge above.<br/><br/>Run around to the statues puking purple stuff into the water and tackle them<br/><br/>all to stop the pollution from entering the water. It is now safe to swim in<br/><br/>the water here, but first open up the chest to the left to get the Tsuta<br/><br/>Ruins map. Jump into the waterfall and follow the river to get back to 1F<br/><br/>in the statue chamber.<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Use the platforms to enter the, um... crotch of the statue.<br/><br/>Inside the="<br/"><br/>Clear the three cursed patches of grass to reveal the constellation for<br/><br/>Tsutagami the monkey. Fill in the stars to meet the third and final flora god<br/><br/>and get his power: Greensprout-Vine!<br/><br/>Use the Vine brush power by drawing a line from the open flower bud to Ammy,<br/><br/>which will pull Ammy onto the flower. Continue pulling yourself up from flower<br/><br/>to flower until you reach the door at the top.<br/><br/>Outside the="<br/"><br/>Once outside, run up the spiral ramp and use the next set of flowers to pull<br/><br/>yourself all the way to the top.<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Jump onto the head and use Vine to tie one flower bud to each of the four<br/><br/>hooks. Jump inside the statue's head to get to floor 3F.<br/><br/>Tsuta Ruins="<br/"><br/>Collect to your heart's content by breaking all the statues in the room, then<br/><br/>save your game. Proceed through the door to the room with the stairs and<br/><br/>collect more stuff if you need it, then continue north through the gate. Once<br/><br/>you pass that Golden Gate you'll reach the ultimate battle in Tsuta Ruins.<br/><br/>Spider="<br/"><br/>She's one charming lady, and just as pretty!<br/><br/>Spider Queen's size may make her seem like a formidable foe, but she's quite<br/><br/>slow and her attacks are just as lazy. She will attack by charging at you,<br/><br/>summoning red orbs to throw at you, or using her tendrils to attack. All of<br/><br/>these are simple to dodge, especially for speedy little Ammy.<br/><br/>Now then, Spider Queen's weakness are the hooks sticking out of her rear end. <br/><br/>Use the brush and move the camera around to get a good angle between her rear<br/><br/>and one of the flowers floating around the room. Draw a line from one of the<br/><br/>flowers to one of the hooks and she'll get caught. Do the same from one more<br/><br/>flower to one more hook and this will force her to open up and reveal all those<br/><br/>eyeballs inside her. Rush in and use Cherry Bombs and relentless bead attacks<br/><br/>to cause major damage. Continue that pattern until all of the eyeballs are<br/><br/>destroyed and Spider Queen is no more.<br/><br/>After her defeat, you'll get The Snarling Beast reflector and find Ume,<br/><br/>Kokari's lost dog. That will wrap up your business at Tsuta Ruins.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.8 Trouble at Taka Pass<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Head over towards Taka Pass and Narai River where you'll find Kokari and his<br/><br/>dog trying to fix the bridge. After Kokari gets the rope across, Susano will<br/><br/>fly through on a log which will pull you and the group onto it.<br/><br/>Narai="<br/"><br/>Your mission here is to hook six Vines from the hooks on the log to the flower<br/><br/>buds along the river bank. Pay attention to the sides and the second you see<br/><br/>a flower bud pass use Vine to hook a vine to a flower bud. Do this six times<br/><br/>(once for each hook) and you'll save the day. Hooray!<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Take some time to stock up on items and other stuff you want to do in Agata<br/><br/>Forest, Shinshu Field, or Kamiki Village. Once you wrap up your business go<br/><br/>back to Agata and cross the new bridge into Taka Pass.<br/><br/>Taka="<br/"><br/>Talk to the Tea Master and her customer, then the merchant if you want to take<br/><br/>a look at his wares. Note his comment about fresh fish being worth a lot of<br/><br/>money to him. If you catch some fish with Kokari over at Agata Forest, bring<br/><br/>them here to sell them for quick cash.<br/><br/>Head south to the large cave blocked by a boulder. Use a Cherry Bomb to blow<br/><br/>the boulder and get inside. At the end of the path you'll meet you old pal,<br/><br/>Waka.<br/><br/>Tao Master Waka (Part="<br/"><br/>Waka's attack will be slightly tougher, but then again you've improved quite a<br/><br/>bit since the last encounter as well. His attacks will consist of standing<br/><br/>sword slashes, running sword slashes, and dashing sword slashes.<br/><br/>With your main weapon (hopefully Snarling Beast or the beads) start attacking<br/><br/>immediately and do not let up. At the same time, use Cherry Bombs to knock off<br/><br/>good portions of his health while you attack. Keep up the assault and use your<br/><br/>secondary weapon to really stick it to him. You may need to use a Holy Bone<br/><br/>once or twice, but overall it's not too bad.<br/><br/>Taka="<br/"><br/>After the battle, follow the wooden ramp up to the next cave and run all the<br/><br/>way to the end to return to Taka Pass. Run north towards a rope bridge hanging<br/><br/>over the merchant and tea folks below. It's missing a few boards it seems, so<br/><br/>use Rejuvenation to restore the bridge and approach the Guardian Sapling. Use<br/><br/>Bloom to restore it and all of Taka Pass back to normal.<br/><br/>You're now free to explore the various areas in Taka Pass. Once you're ready<br/><br/>to continue the quest take the south-west path to Kusa Village.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.9 The Great Canine Hunt!<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Kusa="<br/"><br/>Head into the village as your ink is depleted. It's OK if it runs out for the<br/><br/>time being. Feel free to also talk to the villagers to hear their rather<br/><br/>depressing stories.<br/><br/>When you reach a large building (Mrs. Plum's Inn) take a right and follow the<br/><br/>path up the mountain until you come across another large building. Approach<br/><br/>this building to discover Princess Fuse, a priestess of Kusa Village, possessed<br/><br/>by a black imp. The black imp is really no different than Dead Fish in<br/><br/>movement, but watch out for that blue bomb he drops. Once you defeat all of the<br/><br/>imps the princess will be free.<br/><br/>Keep talking to her to hear the full story about the Divine Wind and Crimson<br/><br/>Helm. She will then request that you locate the Canine Warriors that can<br/><br/>help stop Crimson Helm's reign of terror. Using the sweet new Canine Tracker,<br/><br/>head back towards the main part of the village.<br/><br/>As you return the signal will increase until it peaks at the curve in the <br/><br/>path behind Mrs. Plum's Inn. Use Vine to pull yourself up to a wooden ledge<br/><br/>above the village and continue following the signal. Jump into the cave and<br/><br/>run to the end to find Ko the Canine Warrior. Talk to him and then feed him<br/><br/>some Meat to get on his good side and back to Princess Fuse.<br/><br/>Leave the cave and jump down into the main part of the village. Talk to Flower<br/><br/>Girl on a lower ledge near a spring to find some dead grass, and note that<br/><br/>the Canine Tracker is going nuts. Use Bloom on the dead grass to reveal Shin<br/><br/>the Canine Warrior. Feed him some Meat to get him to return to Princess Fuse.<br/><br/>Only three more to go!<br/><br/>Head towards Susano's sleeping spot outside and follow the path down the hill.<br/><br/>Stop when you see a ladder on the left and jump up to the grass patch<br/><br/>surrounded by bamboo. Blow the crack in the wall with Cherry Bomb and enter<br/><br/>the cave to find Rei, the third Satomi Canine Warrior. Feed him some meat to<br/><br/>get him back to the Princess.<br/><br/>Continue down the hill until you reach Mr. Bamboo's house. To the left of the<br/><br/>house you'll see a glowing bamboo shoot. Use Power Slash to cut it open and<br/><br/>reveal a dog. Tackle the bamboo stalk to wake up Chi, the Canine Warrior. Feed<br/><br/>him some prime beef to get him back to the Princess and bring the total number<br/><br/>of mutts, er... Canine Warriors, up to 4. Return to Princess Fuse's place to<br/><br/>find the fifth and final Canine Warrior.<br/><br/>Canine Warrior="<br/"><br/>This guy's tough, and he won't scamper away as easily as the rest. When he<br/><br/>howls and starts to glow stay away and jump around as much as you can to avoid<br/><br/>his dashing attacks. Use Cherry Bombs when you get him cornered against the<br/><br/>barrier or a tree, and attack as much as possible with Snarling Beast before<br/><br/>he charges his attack. If you daze him (turns gray) use Power Slash to cause<br/><br/>major damage.<br/><br/>Kusa="<br/"><br/>After the battle Tei will be ready for another round, but Princess Fuse won't<br/><br/>have it. Although 5 Canine Warriors have been found, 3 still remain outside<br/><br/>of Kusa Village. With the spots marked on your map it's time to return to<br/><br/>familiar territory and explore new and dangerous grounds.<br/><br/>Head back to the Kusa Village gate and return to Taka Pass.<br/><br/>Taka="<br/"><br/>Head all the way back to Agata Forest.<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Talk to Kokari near the Abyss and he'll mention his lost dog. Hmmm... and you<br/><br/>happen to be looking for dogs. Talk to him again and follow his subtle clue<br/><br/>about the woman at Hitoshio Spring.<br/><br/>At the spring you'll find Kushi from Kamiki Village. She's trying to get a<br/><br/>giant barrel full of water back to the village, but of course a woman as tiny<br/><br/>as here can't possibly carry it back. Hmmm... what to do.<br/><br/>Well, for the time being let's head for the red mark that appears to be at<br/><br/>Kamiki Village. Head out of here to Shinshu Field.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Head straight to Kamiki Village.<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>As soon as you enter the village you'll get the familiar ping from the Canine<br/><br/>Tracker. Follow it into the village and to a certain familiar kid and his dog.<br/><br/>It turns out Hayabusa, Mushi's dog, is Chu the Canine Warrior! You'll need<br/><br/>to talk to him at night to try and convince him to leave the village. It's<br/><br/>time for a rumble!<br/><br/>Canine Warrior="<br/"><br/>Chu's a dirty fighter, man! Aside from the usual rapid dash attacks he has a<br/><br/>tricky move where he digs holes in the grass to trap you, then he takes a whiz<br/><br/>all over Ammy's fur! Avoid those holes and the rocks he tosses out when he digs<br/><br/>then, and use a strong weapon such as Infinity Judge or Snarling Beast to<br/><br/>damage him. You might also want to use some Cherry Bombs while he's digging<br/><br/>those holes. Use a Holy Bone if you need to and continue attacking the old<br/><br/>fashioned way to end the battle.<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>After the battle you'll find out Chu's rather upsetting story about his reason<br/><br/>for staying and pretending to be Hayabusa. He'll grant the Satomi Orb you need<br/><br/>for Princess Fuse. Return to Shinshu Field when you're ready.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Head straight back to Agata Forest.<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Yea, Ume's still lost and Kushi needs help, but for the time being just go on<br/><br/>back to Taka Pass.<br/><br/>Taka="<br/"><br/>Now then, it's time to go and visit Sasa Sanctuary. Head to the big blue gate<br/><br/>(near the spot where the guy is pushing against a wall) and go through it to<br/><br/>enter the sanctuary.<br/><br/>Sasa="<br/"><br/>The Sparrow Clan has a beef with Ammy from the get go, and they will not allow<br/><br/>you to pass... yet. It seems Jamba's daughter has disappeared (what's with<br/><br/>all the missing animals!?) and until she returns you won't be getting anywhere<br/><br/>here. Leave the sanctuary and wait until night... then head over to the<br/><br/>horrible Cutter's place at Taka Pass.<br/><br/>Taka="<br/"><br/>If you haven't already, use a Cherry Bomb to blow open the hole in the roof<br/><br/>of the Cutter's house. This will bathe the inside of the house in moonlight.<br/><br/>Enter the house and drag Mrs. Cutter into the light to reveal her true form...<br/><br/>that of an evil shadow!<br/><br/>These guys have a hard armor that is difficult to pierce, so it takes some<br/><br/>work on your part. Start by slicing off their wings with Power Slash, then<br/><br/>when they're on the ground attack with your main weapon. They will block the<br/><br/>first few hits then turn gray. Use Power Slash when they're gray and follow<br/><br/>up with a barrage of main weapon attacks to easily beat down their health.<br/><br/>Avoid the sword slashes and continue attacking until they're both dead.<br/><br/>After the battle you'll recover Chun from her bamboo prison. Take her back to<br/><br/>Sasa Sanctuary.<br/><br/>Sasa="<br/"><br/>Now that she's back you will be given access to Sasa Sanctuary and its famous<br/><br/>Sparrow Inn. After Jamba and the gate guards leave, go ahead and enter the Inn.<br/><br/>Sparrow="<br/"><br/>Explore the first and second floors of the Inn and meet the guests (or take<br/><br/>some food when they're not looking). You'll also want to ride the elevator up<br/><br/>to the third floor to receive gift baskets from Jamba.<br/><br/>Return to the first floor and exit via the east door when you're ready.<br/><br/>Sasa="<br/"><br/>Talk to the little guy waving flaming sticks around and hear his woes about<br/><br/>the spring. After a few chats with him you'll reunite with Mr. Bamboo from<br/><br/>Kusa Village. Agree to play the hole digging game and get your Triangle button<br/><br/>ready!<br/><br/>There will be several types of blocks that will either block your way, take<br/><br/>away precious seconds from the clock, or yield bonuses.<br/><br/>- Black = Cannot be destroyed.<br/><br/>- Light brown/serrated edges = Destroy with Cherry Bomb.<br/><br/>- Dark brown = Dig through or use Cherry Bomb.<br/><br/>- Purple/sharp edges = Cannot be destroyed, takes away 5 seconds if it hits<br/><br/> Ammy or the old man.<br/><br/>- Treasure = Blocks with treasure can be destroyed to get the cash.<br/><br/>- Water = Blocks filled with water. Cannot be destroyed.<br/><br/>- Big buds = Use Bloom on the big buds to get 20 seconds.<br/><br/>Make your way straight down and keep your R1 button ready to plant Cherry Bombs<br/><br/>quickly. You don't want to let Mr. Bamboo walk around when there's a purple<br/><br/>block nearby. Make your way straight to the bottom row of black blocks to<br/><br/>discover the spring. Get your dig on and quickly dig a hole on the spot to get<br/><br/>the water flowing again.<br/><br/>After some spring hopping, you'll discover a new constellation (and it's been<br/><br/>a while, hasn't it?): Nuregami the sea serpent! He'll teach you the Waterspout<br/><br/>brush power. Draw a line from the water to the bath attendant to put out his<br/><br/>fire, then draw a line up from the power spring to reach the ledge above.<br/><br/>From there, use Waterspout again to draw a waterspout from the water to the<br/><br/>huge bamboo shoot below. That will open the gate to the bamboo thicket north<br/><br/>of the bathhouse. Run through the cave and follow the path until you reach a<br/><br/>large crying sparrow. Talk to him about his lost pooch then continue following<br/><br/>the path until you reach the end.<br/><br/>Watch the glowing bamboo trees closely and use Power Slash on a tree when it<br/><br/>has the glow. This will reveal Canine Warrior Gi!<br/><br/>Canine Warrior="<br/"><br/>When he howls and starts to glow stay away and jump around as much as you can<br/><br/>to avoid his dashing attacks. Use Cherry Bombs when he stands still, and attack<br/><br/>as much as possible with Infinity Judge (or another strong weapon) before<br/><br/>he charges his attack. If you daze him (turns gray) use Power Slash to cause<br/><br/>major damage.<br/><br/>Sasa="<br/"><br/>Head back to the spring to talk to Mr. Bamboo and get his Mermaid Coin as a<br/><br/>gift. Use the coin on the spring and choose Agata Forest as your destination.<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Now that you have Waterspout, you can give Kushi a hand with her dilemma. Use<br/><br/>Waterspout several times to fill the bucket and complete half of her task. Now<br/><br/>about carrying the water all the way back to Kamiki...<br/><br/>An imp will suddenly appear out of nowhere to attack Kushi, but luckily Susano<br/><br/>and his Sword of Passion show up in the nick of time. Like many times before,<br/><br/>Susano will attempt to attack foes on his own but will require your help. Each<br/><br/>time Susano pauses in mid-air next to an enemy, quickly hold R1 and use Power<br/><br/>Slash on the enemy. Repeat this until they are all defeated.<br/><br/>Susano's "victory" will raise his paranoia meter up a few notches before he<br/><br/>takes off, leaving the girl and her barrel to their own devices. Another<br/><br/>familiar voice will suddenly ring out in the distance, calling Ammy's attention<br/><br/>elsewhere. Run to the small island where you first found Kokari to meet him<br/><br/>again.<br/><br/>After some more chatting you'll jump back into the good ol' fishing game.<br/><br/>Like before, draw a line to a fish in the water to hook it, then hold Left or<br/><br/>Right to reel it in. After you catch two small fish you'll get a chance to<br/><br/>nab the Whopper. Bring it up and Power Slash it twice to get the biggest catch<br/><br/>in all of Nippon!<br/><br/>Well, it seems Ume might be gone, but not all is lost. A constellation will<br/><br/>appear in the night sky... Yumigami, god of moon power! Fill in the<br/><br/>constellation to learn Crescent, a power that gives you the ability to turn<br/><br/>day into night. Try it out by drawing half a circle in the sky. Just then,<br/><br/>a certain red-scarfed dog will appear. You knew him as Ume, but his real name<br/><br/>is...<br/><br/>Canine Warrior="<br/"><br/>Well, uh... Jin is interesting. He has the same dash and jump attacks as the<br/><br/>other Canine Warriors, however he'll also drop green... we'll call them bombs.<br/><br/>Avoid the dashes as usual, definitely stay away from a green Un! Jin will also<br/><br/>use Chu's hole-digging technique. Use your strongest weapon combined with<br/><br/>Cherry Bomb to take him out.<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>Jin won't want to leave either, but you'll get his orb in his stead. Now that<br/><br/>you've found all 8 of the Canine Warriors you can return to Princess Fuse at<br/><br/>Kusa Village.<br/><br/>Kusa="<br/"><br/>Talk to Princess Fuse to tell her about the remaining Canine Warriors. While<br/><br/>they may not be here, all of the Satomi Orbs are. They will choose you as the<br/><br/>new master, which means you're the one who gets to beat down Crimson Helm at<br/><br/>the Gale Shrine. Lucky you...<br/><br/>Head over to the Gale Shrine.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.10 Gale Shrine<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Gale Shrine="<br/"><br/>Approach Yatsu at the door to the shrine and he'll let you enter once he sees<br/><br/>the orbs. Run in and get to the large room with the pool of water. You can use<br/><br/>Power Slash to open up the chests at the bottom for some goodies.<br/><br/>From the pool room, head north through the snaking tunnel to find a Devil Gate.<br/><br/>Go on in to fight a new enemy called a chimera. Weaken it with a Cherry Bomb,<br/><br/>then cause major damage with a Power Slash. Repeat that pattern and avoid his<br/><br/>slow-moving attacks to win the battle.<br/><br/>Grab the key and return to the pool room, then head west. You'll be in a large<br/><br/>room with some windmills. Enter the southern room and use the key on the evil<br/><br/>red lock. This will take you into the elevator.<br/><br/>Start by planting a Cherry Bomb right in the middle to move up to floor 2F.<br/><br/>Gale Shrine="<br/"><br/>Run forward and fight the Chimera, then take the key and return to the elevator<br/><br/>shaft.<br/><br/>Gale Shrine="<br/"><br/>Place a Cherry Bomb in the center to move up to 1F, then place another one to<br/><br/>move up to 3F.<br/><br/>Gale Shrine="<br/"><br/>Run into the doorway to place the key and exit out to the balcony. Turn right<br/><br/>and follow the stairs (don't look down!) until you get to the balcony at the<br/><br/>very top of the shrine. <br/><br/>Now you're at the source of the evil air, the force stopping the Divine Wind<br/><br/>from blowing. Use the brush and draw a line in the opposite direction of the<br/><br/>evil wind. You'll have to do that three times to clear out all of the bad mojo<br/><br/>and restore the Divine Wind.<br/><br/>As the wind returns you will get a chance to meet a new deity: Kazegami, the<br/><br/>god of wind! Restore his constellation to get the Galestorm brush power. Use<br/><br/>that power to turn the small windmill above the gate and open the exit.<br/><br/>Return to the main balcony and use Galestorm to blow the fire off that chest<br/><br/>and get the Gale Shrine Map. Return to the elevator to get back down to 1F.<br/><br/>Gale Shrine="<br/"><br/>Run back to that wooden platform with the windmills on it. Use Galestorm to<br/><br/>the left on that first windmill to turn the walkway and access a new chamber on<br/><br/>the west side of the room. Run in and run up the fallen beam to get up to the<br/><br/>rafters. You'll have to use Vine to reach the first flower bud to the west,<br/><br/>then use a large Galestorm to raise the wall scrolls and create platforms you<br/><br/>can jump on. Cross over the beams and head west to continue.<br/><br/>Save at the mirror then enter the large door. Here you'll face three sets of<br/><br/>pots blowing flames up to the ceiling. Use large Galestorms to blow out the<br/><br/>fire and quickly jump over until you reach the end.<br/><br/>In the next room, make sure to run through the gate along the path to save<br/><br/>your progress before fighting...<br/><br/>Crimson="<br/"><br/>Ol' Helmy has a few attacks, but none that are particularly bad. He will have<br/><br/>the typical dash and jump attacks where he'll try to flatten you, but he will<br/><br/>also use a circle of flame and a direct shot of fire. If you see him jump or<br/><br/>rear his head run away to avoid those flames. One minor attack is a swipe with<br/><br/>that flaming sword of his, but that's only a threat at close distances. During<br/><br/>the battle you'll also be protected by the Satomi Power Orbs, so that's eight<br/><br/>hits you can take without losing health.<br/><br/>To attack Crimson Helm you need to approach from behind (to avoid those swords<br/><br/>and flames) and jump on his back, then hit his helmet. Keep hitting the helmet<br/><br/>until the armor falls off and exposes the flaming skeleton. Use Galestorm to<br/><br/>blow away the flames and then attack the skeleton directly with your main<br/><br/>weapon and Cherry Bombs.<br/><br/>Repeat that process until he gets to about 1/4 of his health remaining.<br/><br/>Crimson Helm will then back up as flaming dragon heads emerge from the ground.<br/><br/>To make matters worse, Susano will appear and try to take on the demons<br/><br/>himself! Like always, use Power Slash each time he slashes a dragon head. When<br/><br/>he gets to Crimson Helm you'll need to use Galestorm three times to help him<br/><br/>defeat the demon once and for all.<br/><br/>Gale="<br/"><br/>Leave the shrine and head back to Kamiki Village (either by running or by<br/><br/>Mermaid Coin). You should also take this time to use newly obtained brush<br/><br/>powers such as Crescent and Galestorm to get extra stuff and upgrade your<br/><br/>attributes.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.11 Night of the Full Moon<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>Witness the events as they unfold, then follow Kushi back to Shinshu Field.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>After talking to Kushi, take her to the lake and enter the portal at the end<br/><br/>of the path to reach the Moon Cave.<br/><br/>Moon="<br/"><br/>Waka will be waiting for you at the entrance to the cave. After he goes on for<br/><br/>a bit, Kushi will be taken by Orochi! Ammy will run in and Waka will run off<br/><br/>(as usual).<br/><br/>Proceed up the stairs to find a crumbled staircase. Jump right into the hole<br/><br/>to find the Calcified Cavern.<br/><br/>Calcified="<br/"><br/>Run in and pick up the jug of Thunder Brew from the ground, then continue<br/><br/>running south until you reach the Devil Gate. Enter inside to find a black<br/><br/>imp. Avoid the skulls and use Power Slash to get rid of them, then attack<br/><br/>with Cherry Bombs and your main weapon. After the fight you'll get a blank<br/><br/>imp mask that you can draw anything on. You're free to paint anything on it...<br/><br/>but make sure it's something you can live with. :)<br/><br/>Return to the two imps guarding the door at the north end. After some<br/><br/>back 'n forth they will let you pass into the Moon Cave.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Enter the kitchen on the east side of this main chamber and run up the stairs<br/><br/>next to that large pot. Save your game (highly recommended) then use Vine to<br/><br/>hook the two hooks on the pot lid to the flower buds on the left and right<br/><br/>side. That will lift the lid so you can save Ajimi the chef.<br/><br/>As you get into the conversation with Ajimi he will list four ingredients you<br/><br/>need to help him find:<br/><br/>- Ogre Liver<br/><br/>- Lips of Ice<br/><br/>- Eyeball of Fire<br/><br/>- Black Demon Horn<br/><br/>Return to the main chamber and enter the western room using Ajimi's key.<br/><br/>Inside this cave, use Vine to pull yourself from one flower bud to the next<br/><br/>in order to reach the end. If you notice that a flower bud is pointing down<br/><br/>(into the purple goop) look around for another flower bud near to that one.<br/><br/>Immediately after you use Vine to pull yourself to the one pointing down,<br/><br/>use Vine again to get to the next flower bud.<br/><br/>At the end of the chamber you'll find a eyeball lantern. Use Power Slash to<br/><br/>close the eye and enter the next chamber containing a Devil Gate. Fight off<br/><br/>the enemies to reveal a chest containing the Ogre Liver. Return to the<br/><br/>entrance when you're ready and use Waterspout on the power spring in the small<br/><br/>pool of water to get up to the ledge. Follow this path to get to floor 2F<br/><br/>of the main chamber.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Use Waterspout on the big bowl of water and get up to floor 3F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Enter the north door on this floor. Inside this chamber, jump down to get to<br/><br/>B1F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Enter the Devil Gate to fight some imps. After defeating them use Waterspout<br/><br/>to get water from the pool to the bamboo fountain. This will trigger the valve<br/><br/>at the south end of the room to open and empty the pool in the main chamber.<br/><br/>Head towards the open valve and use Waterspout to get up there. Fight the few<br/><br/>imps then use Waterspout to get to floor 1F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Talk to the imp on the elevator to get a little hint about your next step,<br/><br/>then use Power Slash continuously to make him release the crank and drop the<br/><br/>elevator down to B2F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Jump out of the elevator and enter the next chamber. Position yourself so<br/><br/>that you can see all four of the eyeball lamps and move the camera so all four<br/><br/>of them line up horizontally. Use a Power Slash to hit all four at once when<br/><br/>the eyes are open to open the door.<br/><br/>Inside the room, examine the statue then prepare to fight a new monster. Use<br/><br/>Cherry Bombs to daze the monster then attack with your main weapon. Repeat<br/><br/>that process until it is defeated.<br/><br/>After the fight, you'll get a new constellation. Fill in the stars to Moegami,<br/><br/>god of flames! He'll teach you the Inferno brush power. Use Inferno to melt<br/><br/>the nearby ice and reveal a door. Enter that door to find another elevator.<br/><br/>Talk to the imp to ride back up to 1F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Enter the Devil Gate and defeat the two ice mouths to get the Lips of Ice<br/><br/>ingredient. That's two down and two to go!<br/><br/>Return to the main chamber and enter the flower on the west side to return up<br/><br/>to floor 2F, then ride a Waterspout up to 3F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Enter the north door again and cross over the bridge. If the bridge breaks<br/><br/>you'll need to return here and use Rejuvenation to fill in the gap. Once<br/><br/>you get to the other side use Inferno to melt the ice and enter the door.<br/><br/>Enter the Devil Gate inside and defeat the Fire Eye and Ice Mouth to get the<br/><br/>Fire Eye ingredient for Ajimi's appetizer. Enter the room north of there and<br/><br/>pick up the key, then return to the main chamber on floor 3F.<br/><br/>Run to the door on the east side and open it with the key. Proceed through<br/><br/>the skull room but avoid the sand holes. Shortly after entering you'll also<br/><br/>find a round stone. You'll need to tackle the stone and take it with you as<br/><br/>you proceed through the room. If it falls another one will appear.<br/><br/>When you reach the gap in the path, use Power Slash on the eyeball lamp to<br/><br/>get a glimpse of a path. Use Galestorm to reveal a path and continue until<br/><br/>you reach the chest at the end. Open it to get the Moon Cave Map, then roll<br/><br/>the stone onto the button to activate the torches throughout Moon Cave.<br/><br/>Run left up the stairs (talk to the merchant to scope out his wares) and then<br/><br/>use Vine to reach the flower bud over the platform above. That will bring you<br/><br/>up to floor 4F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Run along until you see a gap and some wall scrolls. Use Galestorm to blow the<br/><br/>scrolls up and across the gap. Continue to the end of the path to find a<br/><br/>cannon. Stand behind the cannon and line yourself up with the scroll of Orochi<br/><br/>in the distance. You'll now need to light the fuse to blow the cannon, but<br/><br/>first you need to know when to light it. Wait until the cannon in facing<br/><br/>straight to the right then light the fuse. This will blow a hole in the north-<br/><br/>east wall.<br/><br/>Enter the north-east chamber and run along the path until you see the flaming<br/><br/>orb. Use Galestorm to push the orb through the tunnel to the chamber at the<br/><br/>end. Use Inferno to burn the two ice blocks nearby and enter the room with<br/><br/>the Devil Gate. Defeat the imps to get the Black Demon Horn.<br/><br/>Return to floor 1F.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Give the chef the final ingredient so he can complete the appetizer. Now that<br/><br/>it's ready you need to go to the epicurean bell and ring it eight times (once<br/><br/>for each of Orochi's foul heads). This will send the appetizer up to the<br/><br/>chamber above. I'd suggest that you save your game now, as you are about to<br/><br/>go to a large battle.<br/><br/>Talk to the elevator guy and convince him to take you up to the throne room.<br/><br/>Moon Cave="<br/"><br/>Talk to the merchant if you want to buy anything before you proceed, then<br/><br/>run through the gate and up the winding path to the top of the structure. Here<br/><br/>you'll see Kushi... and someone who Amaterasu knows very="<br/"><br/>Try a Power Slash to discover Orochi has a barrier around himself. Just as<br/><br/>the battle seems hopeless, Susano will appear in full warrior garb! After he<br/><br/>and Orochi have their little discussion a miracle will occur: the thunder<br/><br/>brew will turn into 8 Purification Sake!<br/><br/>Now your mission is to stuff that sake into each one of the eight heads. Stand<br/><br/>in front of a head and avoid the attacks, then when the head roars and you see<br/><br/>a green light come out use Waterspout to guide the sake from the circle in<br/><br/>the ground to the beast's mouth.<br/><br/>- For the lightning head you'll need to attack it once to get it to roar<br/><br/> since it can't see you.<br/><br/>- The water head will require you to jump on the lily pads and hit it before<br/><br/> it will roar.<br/><br/>- The poison head shoots out two poisoned big buds. Use Bloom on the buds to<br/><br/> neutralize them.<br/><br/>After getting enough of the heads drunk (some may need to two shots of sake)<br/><br/>Orochi will fall and give you access to the bell. Run up along one of the<br/><br/>necks and attack the bell with your strongest main weapon to damage Orochi.<br/><br/>Jump off when the heads regain consciousness and repeat the whole thing until<br/><br/>Orochi falls and a circle of flame surrounds the bell.<br/><br/>The next phase of the battle will be against each individual head. Get in<br/><br/>front of a head (avoid the neighboring heads) and dodge the attacks. Use<br/><br/>Waterspout when it roars to get some more sake in there and get it drunk.<br/><br/>Attack the head directly to damage and eventually knock it out.<br/><br/>After the eight heads have fallen, you'll need to use Crescent to paint the<br/><br/>moon in the sky, just as it was 100 years ago. The final attack will be a<br/><br/>Power Slash through each head, much like any other battle with Susano. He'll<br/><br/>take out the eighth and final head to end the battle and save the fair maiden<br/><br/>Kushi.<br/><br/>Watch the victorious scenes before returning to Kamiki Village.<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>It's festival time, baby! Talk to everyone in the village, on the sacred deck,<br/><br/>and up near Sakuya's tree. After you've talked to everyone and had your fill<br/><br/>of fireworks it's time to return to Taka Pass. As the narrator said, this is<br/><br/>just the beginning!<br/><br/>I highly recommend that you take some time to fulfill side quests, gather<br/><br/>missing items, and train at the dojo to make sure you're ready for the quest<br/><br/>ahead.<br/><br/>Once you're ready, head to the west end of Taka Pass.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.12 Bad Times in Western Nippon<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>City="<br/"><br/>Talk to Yoichi and the snoozing guy to get their input about the happenings<br/><br/>in Nippon. Now your goal is get to an arrow lit so the guard can signal the<br/><br/>other side to lower the bridge. Wait for Yoichi to fire an arrow then<br/><br/>immediately use your brush and Inferno to get some fire from one of the statues<br/><br/>to the arrow in mid-air. If you lit the arrow... enjoy the fireworks!<br/><br/>Run across the bridge and continue west through the canyon ahead.<br/><br/>Ryoshima="<br/"><br/>Ol' Orochi's curse is still hanging around some areas, including nearly all of<br/><br/>Ryoshima Coast. Follow the path to find a split in the road and two paths:<br/><br/>one to Sei-an City and one to Ankoku Temple. Sei-an City is obviously<br/><br/>inaccessible at the moment, so head to the right towards the temple.<br/><br/>Follow the path around the right side of the temple to meet a new enemy called<br/><br/>Headless Guardian. Use Power Brush to break his shield and attack with your<br/><br/>main weapon to easily defeat him. <br/><br/>Continue up the path until you reach a wall with a crack in it. Cherry Bomb the<br/><br/>crack to continue into a cavern with a pool. Jump up onto the next ledge near<br/><br/>the empty pool and use Waterspout to transfer water from the lower pool to the<br/><br/>higher one. Run up to the next pool and fill it using Waterspout again, then<br/><br/>finally get to the top with the Guardian Sapling and use Waterspout to fill the<br/><br/>moat and restore the sapling to full size. Use Bloom to completely restore it<br/><br/>and rid Ryoshima Coast of Orochi's curse.<br/><br/>Return towards the shore, but first make sure to enter a cave east of the<br/><br/>temple. This cave leads straight to Madame Fawn's shack over at Agata Forest,<br/><br/>in case you ever need to get back quickly.<br/><br/>Now head to the west side of Ryoshima and follow the path to meet an Ubume.<br/><br/>These creatures can be defeated by using Galestorm to blow away the umbrella<br/><br/>before attacking. Continue east from there to Sei-an City.<br/><br/>Sei-an City (C.="<br/"><br/>Strange mist... but it's not Orochi's curse. Talk to the people in the city<br/><br/>to get a handle on what's happening then head to the north-west corner. There<br/><br/>you'll meet Naguri, a carpenter trying to bring the water back into the city<br/><br/>canals. Agree to help him dig.<br/><br/>Start with a Cherry Bomb to get down to the water cube below, then place a<br/><br/>Cherry Bomb in the water to blow the surrounding cubes. Let Naguri fall in<br/><br/>and quickly jump up to the big bud above to the right. Blow that cube with a<br/><br/>Cherry Bomb and use Galestorm to push Naguri back to the right, and a<br/><br/>Waterspout to get him up the cube. Quickly place another Cherry Bomb to fall<br/><br/>down along the right side. The next area has a light, a dark, and another light<br/><br/>brown cube. Dig down above the dark cube and dig straight down until you reach<br/><br/>black cubes. Blow the cubes to the right and use Galestorm to get Naguri over<br/><br/>the spike cube, then make your way down the right side again. Head left and<br/><br/>blow the next cube with a Cherry Bomb, then Galestorm Naguri over the spikes<br/><br/>to the bottom level with all the black cubes. Guide him to the right side<br/><br/>to find the water.<br/><br/>After restoring the water, talk to the Tool Dealer near the city entrance and<br/><br/>buy Blinding Snow from him. Now you're ready to go to the northern gate.<br/><br/>Sei-an City (A.="<br/"><br/>Talk to the Benkei the monk on the bridge several times, then offer him<br/><br/>the Blinding Snow rod. You'll now have to help him catch the Living Sword.<br/><br/>Start with the small fish, then work your way up until you catch Cutlass Fish,<br/><br/>the Living Sword. Although this wasn't what the monk expected, he'll keep his<br/><br/>word and let you pass.<br/><br/>Approach Waka (don't worry, there'll be no fighting this time) and listen to<br/><br/>him jabber on. Afterwards continue up the path and into the building. Speak<br/><br/>to the, um... priestess... and get her take on what's happening. After talking<br/><br/>with Rao for a while you'll get a clue about her Prayer Slips. Proceed north<br/><br/>into the Aristocrats' Quarters.<br/><br/>Head east towards the large green portal and enter inside. Head to the right<br/><br/>side of this area and pick up the seemingly useless slips of paper. Take them<br/><br/>back to Rao to discover their real worth.<br/><br/>After some more discussion, Issun and Ammy will agree to meet Rao at the ship<br/><br/>on the next night with a moon in the sky.<br/><br/>Ryoshima="<br/"><br/>Get back to Ryoshima Coast and the jetty that leads to that sunken ship out in<br/><br/>the water. Use Crescent while standing on the platform to clear the water from<br/><br/>around the ship. Now you're free to approach the ship and enter inside the<br/><br/>bright opening on the side.<br/><br/>Sunken="<br/"><br/>Although the door is cursed, the busty chi..., er, Rao will show up to help.<br/><br/>Guide her Prayer Slip to the door to bust it open, then do the same to destroy<br/><br/>the wandering monsters. Proceed into the hull of the ship to find a few doors<br/><br/>and chests.<br/><br/>Head to the left past the black ghost and spiked hall to find a room with a<br/><br/>large pile of bones in the center. Here you'll fight Jiro and Saburo. Both of<br/><br/>these enemies have to be weakened by attacking their shells, then attacking<br/><br/>their exposed bodies. Use a strong weapon to quickly take out the shells.<br/><br/>Proceed into the next room after defeating the crustaceans and use Sunrise in<br/><br/>the open sky above. That will cause the water to rise again, giving you access<br/><br/>to new areas of the ship. Return to the skeleton pile room to meet a new, yet<br/><br/>familiar friend.<br/><br/>Attack its armor continually until you see it all fall off, then attack with<br/><br/>some floating Cherry Bombs to finish it. Never stay in one place too long or<br/><br/>it will easily jump up and come crashing down on top of you. Continue to the<br/><br/>main room where you started after defeating the shark.<br/><br/>Swim to the east end and use the red barrel to get over the wall. In this<br/><br/>section of the ship you have a cannon, some doors, and a locked gate. Stand on<br/><br/>the barrel end of the cannon to lower it down to the bottom door, then load it<br/><br/>with a Cherry Bomb to blow the door open and reveal the key.<br/><br/>For now, continue up into the north room. Here you'll find a sickly green blob<br/><br/>that can transform into a giant arm and bash you around the place. Avoid it<br/><br/>while you swim and head to the stairs on the left. Quickly get up to the<br/><br/>walkway and cut the rope holding up the red barrel. Get on the barrel and roll<br/><br/>it into the hooks at the wall to get some weight on the balance.<br/><br/>Swim back to the stairs to get up to the walkway, and if they come out from<br/><br/>under you remember to keep jumping forward and get out of the way! Follow the<br/><br/>walkway to the stairs that come around from the top and lead you back to the<br/><br/>room with the open roof.<br/><br/>Use Crescent and bring back the moon, along with the lower water level. This<br/><br/>will lift that red barrel next to the ladder. Jump and return from whence you<br/><br/>came until you get to the cannon area. Grab the now-accessible key and open<br/><br/>the locked gate to continue.<br/><br/>Inside this room, open everything to find some monster chests, the Lucky<br/><br/>Mallet, and other stuff. Exit the room when ready.<br/><br/>Ryoshima="<br/"><br/>As Ammy, Issun, and Rao escape from the ship, guess who shows up... the<br/><br/>Water Dragon! Once Rao is in the clear you'll be facing the Water Dragon alone,<br/><br/>but don't worry. Just hop on a Lily Pad and jump away as it attacks. Next thing<br/><br/>you know you'll be back on the shore and Lucky Mallet will guide you all the<br/><br/>way back to Sei-an City Aristocrats' Quarters.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.13 Miniature Explorers<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Sei-an City (A.="<br/"><br/>Follow the Lucky Mallet all the way to the Emperor's building on the east<br/><br/>side. Agree to get Hammered (score!) in order to enter the Emperor's palace.<br/><br/>Imperial="<br/"><br/>Run along the path and do as Issun says when he talks to you. When you approach<br/><br/>the Blocking Spider, run around for a bit to speed up and quickly run past him.<br/><br/>Continue over the rocks of the pond to meet a new enemy called a Thunder Doom<br/><br/>Mirror. A Galestorm will blow those clouds away and leave him open for attack.<br/><br/>Continue along past the next spider to find a few guards standing around in<br/><br/>a cement path. The guard nearest to you will try and squash you, meaning you<br/><br/>can't stand still for long. Further down the other guard will be sweeping with<br/><br/>a broom and will not let you pass. Make the guy trying to squash you put his<br/><br/>foot down and use it to jump up to the hole in the wall on the right. Blow the<br/><br/>hole open with a Cherry Bomb, then pick up the key and return to the spot where<br/><br/>you found the first spider.<br/><br/>Use the key on the locked gate and enter the tunnel to find some ticks... or<br/><br/>fleas. Whatever they are, ignore them and get to the cracked mound at the end.<br/><br/>Blow it open with a Cherry Bomb and jump into the hole. In this area with the<br/><br/>spiders, jump down and use a Cherry Bomb on the next cracked wall to continue.<br/><br/>In this storage room you'll find a flask. Cut down the flask and enter inside<br/><br/>to discover a white mist, different from the green mist floating around. Use<br/><br/>Galestorm to blow the mist out of the flask. Upon exiting you'll see a familiar<br/><br/>starlight... you know what to do!<br/><br/>Speak to Kasugami to get the Veil of Mist brush power, then use it to slow<br/><br/>down the Blocking Spider and return to the surface. Along the way you'll have<br/><br/>to fight a Wind Doom Mirror, which can be defeated by using Veil of Mist to<br/><br/>slow it down. Make your way back to the cement path with the two guards.<br/><br/>Use Veil of Mist to slow down time and get past the two brooms and into the<br/><br/>next area with the bamboo. Get across the bamboo by using Waterspout to lower<br/><br/>the first one, then balance the others so you can reach the next one in line.<br/><br/>Enter the room at the end to find the Emperor at last.<br/><br/>Jump up onto the Platform Spiders to get up onto the rafters.<br/><br/>Imperial Palace="<br/"><br/>Make your way to the middle rafter and head north to find a chest with the<br/><br/>Imperial Palace Map, then head south along the east side. You'll have to time<br/><br/>your jumps onto the green spiders carefully to avoid getting taken for a fast<br/><br/>ride.<br/><br/>Once at the bottom, turn west and then north to find a row of several quick<br/><br/>Blocking Spiders. Get past them using the same method as before until you reach<br/><br/>the green mist cloud. Jump right in to enter the Emperor's body.<br/><br/>Imperial Palace="<br/"><br/>Go around the uvula (dangly thing) and follow the tunnel to the save mirror.<br/><br/>Save your game and then pass through the opening to enter the bowels of the<br/><br/>Emperor's body. Jump onto the platform inside the chamber and prepare="<br/"><br/>Blight's power includes speedy sword slashes from across the room and a move<br/><br/>where his swords encircle him and then shoot out in all directions. To attack<br/><br/>Blight, you'll need to wait for those swords to start floating around and then<br/><br/>attack his golden sword with a Power Slash. That will knock it loose and send<br/><br/>it flying away from Blight. Use Cherry Bombs and your strongest weapon to<br/><br/>attack the sword and damage Blight.

She seemed rather upset, so you better chase after her all the way<br/><br/>to the Sanctuary.<br/><br/>Sasa="<br/"><br/>Run through the Inn and get to the end of that bamboo path outside, where you<br/><br/>found the canine before. There you'll find Mr. Bamboo and Kaguya. Although<br/><br/>they are happy to see each other, Kaguya seems out of sorts...<br/><br/>Follow her into the hole to play another digging mini game. Tunnel your way<br/><br/>down the middle, then to the right when to hit black rocks, then all the way<br/><br/>to the left, then finally you'll find yourself heading to the right until you<br/><br/>dig all the way to the bottom.<br/><br/>So it was a strange spaceship buried in the ground... interesting. Kaguya is<br/><br/>set to leave despite leaving her grandfather behind, however she will grant<br/><br/>you the Fire Tablet as thanks for helping her.

Ryoshima="<br/"><br/>There's quite a bit to do here in N. Ryoshima Coast, but for the time being<br/><br/>run along and talk to Waka, then battle the Earth Nose. Use Veil of Mist on<br/><br/>the Earth Nose to defeat it.<br/><br/>Follow the beach on the left until you meet Urashima and some bully kids. Scare<br/><br/>off the kids and then talk to Urashima to find out how you can get down to<br/><br/>the Dragon Palace. Run down to the pier and use Sunrise to reset the day back<br/><br/>to dawn. Orca the whale will then appear to take you to Dragon Palace. Just<br/><br/>hop on to go for the ride.<br/><br/>You need to find the whirlpool that leads to Dragon Palace, but first let's go<br/><br/>to Catcall Tower to the east. Disembark onto the island with the huge tower<br/><br/>and enter the small wooded area. Approach the tower and use the Catwalk ability<br/><br/>to start jumping up the tower. Keep jumping up until you reach the chamber at<br/><br/>the very top.<br/><br/>Run up the stairs to find a platform with a lone kitty. Feed the cat to call<br/><br/>the constellation of Kabegami the cat! Complete the constellation to get the<br/><br/>Catwalk brush power. Test it out on the statue behind you and then return down<br/><br/>to sea level.<br/><br/>Leave the small island and head over to the Watcher's Cape on the west side of<br/><br/>N. Ryoshima Coast. Use Catwalk on the statue on the west side to jump up to the<br/><br/>top and find a Watcher looking for stars. Sit next to him and place a dot in<br/><br/>the empty sky to create a star so he can get his wish.<br/><br/>Now that the Whirlpool Galaxy is back, run to the end of the cape and stand on<br/><br/>the pedestal. Use Galestorm to spin the Whirlpool Galaxy counter-clockwise.<br/><br/>Repeat it a few more times to really get it spinning and make the whirlpool in<br/><br/>the water appear.<br/><br/>Go find Orca at the pier and ride him into the whirlpool to enter Dragon<br/><br/>Palace.<br/><br/>Dragon="<br/"><br/>Proceed forward and talk to the Security Guards, then enter the palace.

If<br/><br/>you're prepared to deal with a dungeon, enter the dragon's mouth.<br/><br/>Inside the="<br/"><br/>Proceed through the dragon into the large cavern ahead. Jump into the water and<br/><br/>swim north to find a key resting on a large platform. Now turn south and look<br/><br/>for a place to use Waterspout next to the east wall. Ride the Waterspout and<br/><br/>then jump from one path to the other to continue north. Get to the locked gate<br/><br/>at the end to proceed.<br/><br/>You'll now notice a large glass orb stuck in a mass of purple goo, but there's<br/><br/>nothing that can be done about that yet. Continue north into the large room<br/><br/>at the end.<br/><br/>In here you'll need to use Waterspout to hit that fleshy bulb at the top with<br/><br/>the red liquid dripping from it. Use Waterspout three times to pop the plug<br/><br/>and fill the place with red goo. Use Water Lily to get back to the room with<br/><br/>the orb. Use Waterspout again, but this time to dissolve the purple tendons<br/><br/>holding the orb in place. You will then obtain the Dragon Orb and fight a new<br/><br/>enemy...<br/><br/>Tube="<br/"><br/>Tube Fox is actually a set of 9 foxes that attack quickly but cause little<br/><br/>damage.

Start by<br/><br/>avoiding all fire dagger attacks and keep moving to dodge the overhead strikes.<br/><br/>To attack, use plenty of Cherry Bombs and your strongest weapon, as well as<br/><br/>an Exorcism Slip or two for good measure.

Here you'll have to jump into<br/><br/>the lava pool and choose east or west. On either side you'll find another<br/><br/>lava spout where you can use Waterspout to get up the wall and to the gate of<br/><br/>the main structure. Here you'll fight Red Ogre and Blue ogre. Use Cherry Bombs<br/><br/>and attack from the sides to defeat them both easily.<br/><br/>Enter the main gate.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Look around the main chamber and approach the mirror on the right to save.<br/><br/>There is also a Merchant if you ever need to buy something. Now head west and<br/><br/>the room that's on the right to find a key, but first you have to fight a<br/><br/>Poltergeist. Like before, some Cherry Bombs and your main weapon can take care<br/><br/>of it. Collect the key and return to the main chamber, then head east to find<br/><br/>the lock for that key.<br/><br/>Run down all the way to B2F.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Read the sign to get the rules about the Labrynth of Torment, then talk to Tobi<br/><br/>to initiate the race. The goal is to hit the switch under the sheet of paper<br/><br/>and quickly head for the exit before it does. If you make it through the gate<br/><br/>first then you win. Press Square to tackle and begin a dash, and hold Up to<br/><br/>maintain it. Use that to hit the switch and Tobi through the first gate.<br/><br/>The next gate will require you to jump from platform to platform to the gate<br/><br/>in the opposite corner of the room. Use a dash to perform some quick jumps and<br/><br/>get across the platforms before Tobi does.<br/><br/>Run all the way up the stairs.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Use Catwalk and get to the platforms above, then jump across the spiked<br/><br/>platforms. On the other side of this hallway you'll once again meet Tobi. Race<br/><br/>him from one platform to the next. If you happen to fall you'll need to use<br/><br/>Catwalk on the wall to reach the gate.<br/><br/>The next race is through a hall blocked by spiked walls. Simply use the double<br/><br/>jump to get over the longer walls or double walls, and use single jumps to get<br/><br/>over small walls.<br/><br/>The next hall contains demonic spiked wheels. Speed up and get ready to shift<br/><br/>left or right depending on the position of the wheels. At the end of the wheels<br/><br/>you'll need to jump as far as you can twice to get up the stairs and through<br/><br/>the gate.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>The next part of the race is a simple battle, but you have to defeat the<br/><br/>enemies under a time limit to get past the chamber of delay. Start by dashing<br/><br/>in and quickly using Veil of Mist, then when the battle starts use Veil of<br/><br/>Mist and some Exorcism Scrolls to defeat the monsters as quickly as possible.<br/><br/>You'll have to wait for the battle end screen to vanish before you can proceed<br/><br/>through the gate. Run through and up the stairs to continue.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Head to the right side and jump over the spikes when they appear. Get onto that<br/><br/>first ledge on the right next to the statue, then tackle it and jump around to<br/><br/>the other side of the statue. Continue jumping along platforms on the right<br/><br/>side until you reach a platform with a green switch. Hit the switch to get rid<br/><br/>of the walls on the first half of the room. Keep jumping along the right side<br/><br/>until you see the path leading to the end. Follow that path and continue<br/><br/>through the next gate.<br/><br/>In the chamber with the pool you'll battle a Blue Cyclops, which is no<br/><br/>different than before. Proceed through the next few doors to find a mirror and<br/><br/>a glimpse of what's to come. Save your game and continue down the hall to find<br/><br/>Tobi. Dash over the button and stay in the middle to avoid the needles from<br/><br/>the sides of the room.<br/><br/>Use a Cherry Bomb to blow open the wall and exit to the roof of the castle.<br/><br/>Run around to the right and use Catwalk to reach the next roof and grab the<br/><br/>key. Take that key back to the locked gate you passed earlier and proceed up<br/><br/>that hallway. Make sure to run around the outside of that room with the chest<br/><br/>or the spiked bamboo will surely hit you.<br/><br/>Exit through the door at the end to find a statue of a tiger. Use Rejuvenation<br/><br/>to paint a bolt-shaped arrow across the top of the statue and complete the<br/><br/>masterpiece. This will reveal the constellation for Gekigami, the tiger! He'll<br/><br/>teach you the Thunderstorm brush power.<br/><br/>Use that power to open the door on the left, then use it again on the next<br/><br/>electric rod to activate the bridge. Cross the bridge and go through the door<br/><br/>at the end to continue.<br/><br/>Use a Cherry Bomb to blow up the floor in this room and return to 1F.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Enter the tunnel blocked by a scroll and pick up the key at the end. While<br/><br/>holding the key, turn around and jump onto the platforms that appear on the<br/><br/>other side to get to the top and find an electric door. Use the electricity<br/><br/>from the key to open it and enter the sliding doors of hell.<br/><br/>It'll be confusing, but you'll be fine as long as you make your way towards<br/><br/>the south-west corner of the maze. There you'll find a wall with a crack in<br/><br/>it, which of course can be Cherry Bombed to reveal the exit. Head down and<br/><br/>east to get back to the main chamber. Use the key to open the north gate and<br/><br/>proceed up to the center of Oni Island.<br/><br/>In this room, use Thunderstorm to light up the large sword and blow up the<br/><br/>statue, revealing a staircase. Follow the stairs down to a booby trap. Use<br/><br/>Power Slash to hit all five of the eyeballs and shut off the trap, then<br/><br/>continue down to B1F.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Make your way up the rotating ramps until you see the light bulb lock. Head<br/><br/>left from there to the cat statue. Here, use Catwalk and get up to the rotating<br/><br/>ramps above. You'll eventually reach the room with the electric key. Power<br/><br/>Slash the gate to open it and grab the key. Return to the electric lock to<br/><br/>continue.<br/><br/>Jump up from one platform to the next until you see the spinning platforms,<br/><br/>then jump up through the holes from one to the next until you get to the top.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Run in and mind the beams as you head west. Pick up the electric key and use<br/><br/>it to open the chest underneath the stairs to get the Oni Island map.<br/><br/>Take the key and run up the stairs.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Get across the electric platforms and then use Veil of Mist to jump past the<br/><br/>spider. Drop the key to fall down into a room with a chest.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Pick up the gate key and blow open the western wall to reach the gate lock.<br/><br/>After opening the gate that leads to the stairs, pick up the electric key<br/><br/>again. You may need to pick it up again next to the stairs.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Why, it's Tobi... again. This race will involve racing across an electric<br/><br/>platform, using Veil of Mist to get past the spider, and jumping to avoid the<br/><br/>spikes at the foot of each set of stairs. If you win you'll be up on floor 6F.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Run into the room to fight two ogres again. You can now use Thunderstorm on<br/><br/>the blue one and continue to use Cherry Bombs and your weapons to defeat the<br/><br/>pair of uggos. Proceed into the next hall to find a wall with spikes that<br/><br/>you must climb. Use the statue and Catwalk to create a path that you can use<br/><br/>to get around the spikes.<br/><br/>Use Veil of Mist to get past the spider blocking the entrance to another room<br/><br/>with storm clouds. Defeat the enemies and continue to the terrace outside. Here<br/><br/>you'll find some large terraces and a Blockhead. Like before, pay attention and<br/><br/>watch the glowing spots, then place a dot on each spot in the correct order.<br/><br/>Once you defeat him you'll be on 7F.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>It looks like Tobi wants one more race to end them all, and we can not<br/><br/>disappoint. Start by drawing a small Cherry Bomb to blow open the wall at the<br/><br/>other end, then begin the race and use Vine to swing across to that flower bud.<br/><br/>That will be Tobi's final race... and will lead you straight to the final<br/><br/>floor.<br/><br/>Oni Island="<br/"><br/>Run around on the path until you get to the roof. Watch the scene then fill in<br/><br/>the constellation to="<br/"><br/>This enemy has a multitude of attacks, many of which are very strong. There's<br/><br/>the usual charge attack, as well as attacks where she leaps onto you. Keep<br/><br/>running around the arena to avoid those. She'll also use her tails to throw<br/><br/>some toxic brown liquid out, which will require you to do some careful jumping.<br/><br/>As you progress into the battle she will also attack with her tails from<br/><br/>underneath.<br/><br/>When you see her sword rise up it's time to attack. Use Thunderstorm to hit the<br/><br/>sword with electricity from one of the clouds, then start attacking each<br/><br/>individual tail entity. You will need to draw your attacks quickly before she<br/><br/>has a chance to paint her own attack and block yours. I suggest using some<br/><br/>quick, small Cherry Bombs to weaken the little buggers. As you destroy each<br/><br/>piece of her rear end she'll have less and less tails until she's down to just<br/><br/>one: her own.<br/><br/>Once her true bodily form is revealed it's time to really stick it to her. Use<br/><br/>a whole lot of Cherry Bombs and your weapons to defeat her for good. Watch the<br/><br/>end of yet another evil being, but as the scene suggests there is more explore<br/><br/>in the extreme north.<br/><br/>For now, make your way all the way back to Shinshu Field.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.17 Frigid Wastes of Kamui<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Head to the east side and use Catwalk to get to the large stone building on the<br/><br/>highest hill in Shinshu Field. You know, the one you've been looking at since<br/><br/>the beginning of the game but could never reach. Use Thunderstorm to light up<br/><br/>the familiar nine-pronged sword and open the doorway to Kamui, land to="<br/"><br/>Run along and save, then proceed into the large area. Defeat the Namahage, the<br/><br/>common enemy for Kamui, and enter the hut. Inside you'll find Oki, the Oina<br/><br/>Warrior, who will quickly escape to the blizzard. Follow him out there to<br/><br/>initiate the="<br/"><br/>Avoid his dashes and slashes and follow through with attacks from your<br/><br/>strongest weapon (Blade of Kusanagi with Gold Dust, perhaps) as well as Cherry<br/><br/>Bombs. His human form will not be too tough as long as you keep moving.<br/><br/>Next he transforms into a large blue wolf. Keep at him with Cherry Bombs and<br/><br/>your weapon, even when he releases the ice clones to attack you. Definitely<br/><br/>try and avoid those dashes where he freezes you, but simply by hopping out of<br/><br/>the way. If you stay too far away from him you'll never get a hit="<br/"><br/>After his defeat, head north to the village Oki spoke of. Look for Yoichi, the<br/><br/>archer from City Checkpoint and N. Ryoshima Coast, and talk to him. It seems<br/><br/>he's feeling a bit under the weather after the last few encounters with Ammy.<br/><br/>Stand next to him and use Thunderstorm when his arrow is flying through the<br/><br/>air to blow up the boulder in the distance. This will reveal the Guardian<br/><br/>Sapling for Kamui. Use Bloom to restore it and all of Kamui back to normal.<br/><br/>Head north and defeat the new Igloo Turtle enemy, then continue north along the<br/><br/>west side until you find the path leading up to="<br/"><br/>Head to west Wep'keer and follow the path that leads to the building all the<br/><br/>way at the top. Approach the front door to find Samickle, top warrior of the<br/><br/>Oina tribe. Talk to him for a while to get a rude welcome, then leave back to<br/><br/>the entrance. <br/><br/>Kai, another member of the Oina tribe, will approach and ask that you accompany<br/><br/>her back to her place. There you can chat it up and hear all about what's<br/><br/>going down in Wep'keer.<br/><br/>After the conversation, head back to Kemu's place at the top of the village.<br/><br/>Talk to him for a while to learn that your next destination is Yoshpet, a<br/><br/>mysterious forest in east Kamui. For now, head north to Laochi Lake.<br/><br/>Laochi="<br/"><br/>Get to the small shack at the north end of the path and speak with the<br/><br/>priestess. She'll give you the Sewaprolo, a charm that you'll need to get to<br/><br/>Yoshpet.

Although the<br/><br/>village seems different...<br/><br/>Talk to "Shakuya" and then head down to Kamiki. You'll find that the villagers<br/><br/>all seem to have forgotten Ammy or gotten confused, as they all seem to call<br/><br/>her Shiranui. Head over to Susano's place and tackle the guy sleeping on the<br/><br/>grass to wake him up. If you're suspecting what you should be, this place isn't<br/><br/>the Kamiki you knew. It's actually Kamiki Village 100 Years Ago, and that's<br/><br/>not Susano... it's="<br/"><br/>Nagi's actually not as tough as his legend proclaims. I suggest using your<br/><br/>strongest glaive and charging it for attack, then jump and slash down to cause<br/><br/>major damage. Repeat that attack and avoid the flying swords to defeat Nagi<br/><br/>and knock him out cold.<br/><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>Now, if you've ever watched a time travel film you know that it's not a good<br/><br/>idea to mess with past events. By knocking out Nagi you've effectively kept<br/><br/>him from heading out to defeat Orochi, along with Shiranui. Head over to Nami's<br/><br/>place and you'll find her bathing in the pond. Slowly walk up to the robe and<br/><br/>pick it up, then slowly walk away. Run back to Nagi to strap him up with the<br/><br/>robe to complete the sacrificial ensemble.<br/><br/>Lug Nagi over to Moon Cave.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>Before you can get there, however, you'll be facing some new enemies. The<br/><br/>clay samurais and clay soldiers are nothing major at this point, so easily<br/><br/>dispatch them and move along.<br/><br/>Head to the Moon Cave (now located in south-east Shinshu) and approach the<br/><br/>cave. Defeat the Dogus then get a little closer to initiate a scene in which<br/><br/>Nagi wakes up. <br/><br/>Unfortunately, Orochi can taste a fake. Nagi gets spit back out, leaving Ammy<br/><br/>and Issun trapped in a familiar situation. Enter the Moon Cave (no wandering<br/><br/>around underground this time) and pick up the 8 Purification Sake along the<br/><br/>way. At the top of the stairs you'll find Orochi's domain.<br/><br/>True="<br/"><br/>So, this is supposed to be Orochi "at his peak", but the guy's, er, guys ARE,<br/><br/>a push over. Equip your strongest glaive and get ready to relive the exact same<br/><br/>battle as before.<br/><br/>Stuff that sake into each one of the eight heads by using Waterspout. After<br/><br/>getting enough of the heads drunk, Orochi will fall and give you access to the<br/><br/>bell. Run up along one of the necks and attack the bell with your strongest<br/><br/>main weapon to damage Orochi. If one round isn't enough, repeat the sake-thon<br/><br/>and finish off the bell to bring Orochi down to earth.<br/><br/>The next phase of the battle will be against each individual head. Get in<br/><br/>front of a head (avoid the neighboring heads) and dodge the attacks. Use<br/><br/>Waterspout when it roars to get some more sake in there and get it drunk.<br/><br/>Attack the head directly to damage and eventually knock it out.<br/><br/>After the eight heads have fallen, you'll need to use Crescent to paint the<br/><br/>moon in the sky and power up Nagi's sword, just as before. The difference is<br/><br/>now each head will come with a glowing Japanese character that fades away,<br/><br/>and if it fades you'll need to start over. Slash them all and leave the final<br/><br/>head to Nagi's Celestial Cleaver.<br/><br/>After some narration and the details of how exactly Shiranui (aka Ammy) died<br/><br/>all those years ago, you'll return to Inner Yoshpet to resume the quest to save<br/><br/>Kamui from the Day of Darkness.<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.19 To the Top of Ezofuji<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Inner="<br/"><br/>Take Lika and make your way back to Lake Laochi at the base of Ezofuji.<br/><br/>Lake="<br/"><br/>Head up the western path to find the Assun Gate open and the villagers trying<br/><br/>to shut it.

Head into the east room.<br/><br/>In here, your goal is to balance the weights in the middle of the room. Start<br/><br/>by using Fireburst to melt the two ice blocks on the weight, then lift two of<br/><br/>those houseplants and put them on the weight. Use Bloom on both to make them<br/><br/>grow and balance the weights. Use the new path to blow the ice boulder onto<br/><br/>the switch on the other side by using Galestorm. Grab the key from the new room<br/><br/>and return to the main chamber.<br/><br/>Open the door and enter the middle of the tower.

Use Veil of Mist again to get past the spinning gears<br/><br/>and exit out to the exterior of Ezofuji.<br/><br/>Follow the icy path until you get back down to another section of 3F, next to<br/><br/>a large machine.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>Fight off the Great Tengu with a good, strong glaive, then approach the machine<br/><br/>blowing snow out of its business end. Unfreeze the handle on the left then hit<br/><br/>the lever so the eye of each spinning cog stops at the right spot.<br/><br/>- First lever pull: Left cog eye is at the top.<br/><br/>- Second lever pull: Middle cog is on the right.<br/><br/>- Third lever pull: Right cog eye is on the left.<br/><br/>After you stop the machine, fill in the constellation to complete the set and<br/><br/>earn the Blizzard brush power from Itegami the bull. Use that to freeze the<br/><br/>spider and get back up to 4F.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>Return to the main tower section of 4F, then freeze the nearby spider and jump<br/><br/>up to 5F.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>Run along and freeze the first spider to get to the other side of the gap.<br/><br/>Use Inferno and the torches to light up the ice block across the huge gap and<br/><br/>then Vine yourself over to that flower bud.<br/><br/>Use Catwalk to climb up the wall to the next ledge, then freeze the two<br/><br/>spiders. Keep jumping and freezing spiders until you reach the door on floor<br/><br/>6F.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>Use Veil of Mist to cross over the spinning gears, and make sure to grab the<br/><br/>map from the chest along the way. Continue north by breaking through the door<br/><br/>with a Fireburst. The next hallway has two slowly spinning platforms and one<br/><br/>quick one on fire. Hop over the first two and freeze the third to proceed.<br/><br/>The next hallway requires you to use Blizzard from the far off icicle to build<br/><br/>a bridge over the hole. After that, we return to the exterior. Fight and freeze<br/><br/>your way through until you get to the next door. Here you'll need to use<br/><br/>Galestorm to get past the flaming pots, and perhaps Veil of Mist to get past<br/><br/>cannon at the end.<br/><br/>The final hall that points south will have breakable glass floors (not too bad)<br/><br/>and another cannon (really bad). Get across the first section by jumping<br/><br/>across, then use Veil of Mist to quickly run past the cannon to the final room<br/><br/>at the end.<br/><br/>Save your game and run up to 7F.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>Now, we finally meet one of the twin demons of Ezofuji. Prepare to="<br/"><br/>Nechku will throw ice spears, fire balls, and he'll charge at you for some<br/><br/>close combat. All attacks can be dodged, but in order to defeat him you'll need<br/><br/>to deflect his ice spears and fireballs back at him to weaken him. When you see<br/><br/>stars, go in for the weapon attacks and massive damage. It won't take long to<br/><br/>defeat Nechku.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>It seems all is going well, however just then Lechku and Oki will come flying<br/><br/>in through the arena. Oki's recklessness will prove to be old Ammy's downfall<br/><br/>as she is forced to take a hit in order to save him. Watch the scene unfold<br/><br/>as the twin demons fly off to the other peak of Ezofuji.<br/><br/>Pick up the cog that was dropped during the battle and talk to Oki to return<br/><br/>to floor 4F.<br/><br/>Wawku Shrine="<br/"><br/>Head to the other door on this floor, the one with a circle opening. The cog<br/><br/>from the battle will fit right into the slot and grant you access to the other<br/><br/>side of Ezofuji. Use the cannons to blow up the red and yellow cannons on the<br/><br/>other side, and don't worry if you happen to miss one. Use Blizzard to create<br/><br/>a bridge across to the other side. Some Veil of Mist and a well-aimed Power<br/><br/>Slash will help to knock the cannon balls back at the cannons and finish them<br/><br/>off.<br/><br/>Melt the ice to the left of the door to reveal an ice ball. Use Galestorm to<br/><br/>roll it into the next room full of flaming cogs and use it to cool them off<br/><br/>and cross to the north-west corner. Blow up the ground to grab the key (while<br/><br/>still using Blizzard to continually freeze the cogs), then head to the<br/><br/>south-west corner and continue along the path.<br/><br/>Save your game and stock up on battle items if you need them, then proceed into<br/><br/>the battle against...<br/><br/>Nechku and="<br/"><br/>This battle can get tedious with the camera's confusion on which monster to<br/><br/>settle with, but try your best to keep both of them in view. They'll toss<br/><br/>items such as eggs, bombs, poison plants, fireballs, and icicles, and you<br/><br/>should avoid almost all of those things by running around and jumping. However,<br/><br/>when you see the fireballs and icicles, use Power Slash to deflect them and<br/><br/>damage the monsters. When they get weak enough they'll get confused and fly<br/><br/>aimlessly. That's your chance to hold Oki's bow string back and release him in<br/><br/>order to bring down the creatures. When they are down simply charge in and<br/><br/>attack with your strongest weapon. If you want to cause additional damage,<br/><br/>slash the egg or light up the bomb when they are holding them in mid-air.<br/><br/>Once you defeat the mechanical demons, Ezofuji will be free from evil and<br/><br/>peace will be restored to Wep'keer. Now you begin your final quest...<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/> 3.20 Quest's End at Ark of Yamato<br/><br/>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br/><br/>Lake="<br/"><br/>STOP!!! You are about to proceed past the point of no return. At this point I<br/><br/>highly suggest you go back and complete all side quests, collect all Praise,<br/><br/>and wrap up any loose ends that you want to wrap up before you complete the<br/><br/>game. You should also create a save file outside the ark, in case you ever need<br/><br/>to come back to the pre-ark Nippon to complete anything you missed.<br/><br/>When you're ready, head up the rainbow path to the Ark of Yamato and agree to<br/><br/>go past the point of no return. Watch the scene unfold, and say goodbye...<br/><br/>Ark of="<br/"><br/>Talk to Marco there on the side to buy or sell stuff (stock up on battle items<br/><br/>if you need them), then proceed across the bridge. You now have five paths to<br/><br/>choose from, and each path will lead you to a boss enemy that you previously<br/><br/>defeat. We may as well start from the left="<br/"><br/>This enemy has a multitude of attacks, but at this point they should not pose<br/><br/>a problem. <br/><br/>When you see her sword rise up it's time to attack. Use Thunderstorm to hit the<br/><br/>sword with electricity from one of the clouds, then start attacking each<br/><br/>individual tail entity. You will need to draw your attacks quickly before she<br/><br/>has a chance to paint her own attack and block yours. As you destroy each<br/><br/>piece of her rear end she'll have less and less tails until she's down to just<br/><br/>one: her own.<br/><br/>Once her true bodily form is revealed it's time to really stick it to her.<br/><br/>Crimson="<br/"><br/>Ol' Helmy has a few attacks, but none that are particularly bad.<br/><br/>To attack Crimson Helm you need to approach from behind (to avoid those swords<br/><br/>and flames) and jump on his back, then hit his helmet. Keep hitting the helmet<br/><br/>until the armor falls off and exposes the flaming skeleton. Use Galestorm to<br/><br/>blow away the flames and then attack the skeleton directly with your main<br/><br/>weapon.<br/><br/>Spider="<br/"><br/>She will attack by charging at you, summoning red orbs to throw at you, or<br/><br/>using her tendrils to attack. All of these are simple to dodge, especially for<br/><br/>speedy little Ammy.<br/><br/>Now then, Spider Queen's weakness are the hooks sticking out of her rear end. <br/><br/>Use the brush and move the camera around to get a good angle between her rear<br/><br/>and one of the flowers floating around the room. Draw a line from one of the<br/><br/>flowers to one of the hooks and she'll get caught. Do the same from two more<br/><br/>flowers to two more hooks and this will force her to open up and reveal all<br/><br/>those eyeballs inside her. Bust the eyeballs to defeat her.<br/><br/>True="<br/"><br/>Stuff that sake into each one of the eight heads by using Waterspout. After<br/><br/>getting enough of the heads drunk, Orochi will fall and give you access to the<br/><br/>bell. Run up along one of the necks and attack the bell with your strongest<br/><br/>main weapon to damage Orochi and bring him down to the ground.<br/><br/>The next phase of the battle will be against each individual head. Get in<br/><br/>front of a head (avoid the neighboring heads) and dodge the attacks. Use<br/><br/>Waterspout when it roars to get some more sake in there and get it drunk.<br/><br/>Attack the head directly to damage and eventually knock out each="<br/"><br/>Blight's power includes speedy sword slashes from across the room and a move<br/><br/>where his swords encircle him and then shoot out in all directions. To attack<br/><br/>Blight, use Veil of Mist when Blight teleports around the arena and attack<br/><br/>while he's floating across.<br/><br/>Ark of="<br/"><br/>After you defeat the five bosses and get more details about the fall of the<br/><br/>Celestials, head to the center of the ark and enter the portal.<br/><br/>Ruler of Darkness="<br/"><br/>Watch it all unfold as Waka's true past is revealed. After the scenes, you'll<br/><br/>be left powerless. Start by avoid his attacks and hit him when you see the<br/><br/>opportunity. After enough hits you'll regain Rejuvenation. Twelve more to go...<br/><br/>Continue attacking until you get Power Slash, after which Yami will be dazed.<br/><br/>Attack with your strongest weapon to retrieve another brush power, then use<br/><br/>Bloom on Yami's confused orb to reveal Yami's true form. Go on into his orb<br/><br/>and attack the little creature inside to weaken Yami.<br/><br/>He will then restore the arena and turn into a green flaming orb. Wait for<br/><br/>the flames to subside then quickly attack to get Waterspout. Use Waterspout<br/><br/>to retard the flames and continue the assault.<br/><br/>In the third phase Yami will turn into a slot machine orb. Use Power Slash to<br/><br/>hit the three slots and receive his attacks. Use Power Slash again to deflect<br/><br/>the attacks back at him. You'll also get a new brush power for each jackpot<br/><br/>you manage to hit. As the battle progresses Yami will appear at the top of the<br/><br/>orb. Power Slash him or use elemental attacks to cause more damage.<br/><br/>Phase 4 will involve Yami's orb turning into a large, clumsy robot with tiny<br/><br/>legs and tendril arms. Attack Yami when he appears in front of the orb, and<br/><br/>avoid his attacks when he's tucked away inside. Once you have Thunderstorm,<br/><br/>use it to electrify Yami when he's outside the robot and make him roll out<br/><br/>for a good ol' ass kickin'. As this phase of the battle progresses he will<br/><br/>use missiles, flaming lasers, and his tendrils to attack. All can be avoided<br/><br/>by staying away and only attacking when you see him appear from within the<br/><br/>orb.<br/><br/>After this battle the true power of Amaterasu, reinforced by the faith of her<br/><br/>friends and those she protects, will finally kick in. And just in the nick of<br/><br/>time,="<br/"><br/>This is it, the final battle! Start by using Sunrise to create a sun in the<br/><br/>chamber, weakening Yami and forcing him out of the orb/hand. Attack with your<br/><br/>strongest weapon, then continue attacking when he hides in the palm of the<br/><br/>skeletal hand until Yami is no more.<br/><br/>The="<br/"><br/>Well, it's been a wild ride. Some sadness, lots of gladness, and more sake than<br/><br/>any game in the history of the world. I hope you had fun... I know I did. Stick<br/><br/>around after the credits to get more fun stuff.<br/><br/>Oh, and as always...<br/><br/> THANKS FOR="=" 4.0 SIDE QUESTS="<br/"><br/>Kamiki="<br/"><br/>- Komuso<br/><br/>Komuso is the guy wearing a helmet near the sacred deck. Talk to him<br/><br/>to initiate a battle. If you defeat the green imps under the time limit (about<br/><br/>12 seconds) you will be rewarded with Praise.<br/><br/>- Mrs. Orange<br/><br/>Talk to Mrs. Orange at the river to hear about her lost laundry pole. Use<br/><br/>Rejuvenation to paint a straight line between the two wooden poles to the right<br/><br/>of Mrs. Orange. That will cheer her up, but now she needs the sun to be closer<br/><br/>to her. Use Sunrise in the sky above here to bring the sun. She will reward<br/><br/>you with Praise and Cherry Cakes if you stop by her house later that night.<br/><br/>- Mushi<br/><br/>Talk to the little kid walking around with his dog in Kamiki Village. He'll<br/><br/>challenge you to beat his dog's record of 9 turnips dug up from his mom's<br/><br/>garden. Run in and start digging up a turnip, which will trigger his mom to<br/><br/>go into chase mode. Avoid her and use Power Slash to knock her out, then go<br/><br/>for the next turnip. Repeat this process until you've dug up 9 turnips, then<br/><br/>dig up the final one and carry it back to Mushi. Praise will be your reward.<br/><br/>- Camille and Camellia<br/><br/>After completely restoring Sakuya back to her old self at Kamiki Village,<br/><br/>approach her tree from around the gate to talk to Camille and Camellia. Camille<br/><br/>will not believe her sister about the tree blossoming, so give her a little<br/><br/>bump on the bum to make her believe. You'll get rewarded with Praise just<br/><br/>for that!<br/><br/>- Sakuya<br/><br/>After completely restoring Sakuya back to her old self at Kamiki Village,<br/><br/>approach her tree through the gate. She will reward you with a fruit each time<br/><br/>you restore a Guardian Sapling, and each fruit will contain a sweet reward.<br/><br/>Shinshu="<br/"><br/>- Nameless Man<br/><br/>After defeating Orochi, talk to Nameless Man. He'll give you a vase. You can<br/><br/>then take that vase to any of the Guardian Statues scattered around Shinshu<br/><br/>Field to get Praise. He will produce one new vase each day (up until 4, then<br/><br/>you have to return later in the game to get the 5th one).<br/><br/>#1 Just south of Nameless Man's house, along the path.<br/><br/>#2 Inside a cave next to a cat statue in the north-east part of Shinshu. Blow<br/><br/> the cave open with a Cherry Bomb.<br/><br/>#3 To the east of the dojo, along the path. It is next to a boulder.<br/><br/>#4 On the beach below the steep ramp that leads towards the Moon Cave. Look for<br/><br/> it tucked away right next to the ramp.<br/><br/>#5 After defeating Orochi, a Guardian Statue will appear on the path that used<br/><br/> to lead to the Moon Cave.<br/><br/>- Ida<br/><br/>Head to the east side of Shinshu field, then turn south when you hit the cliff<br/><br/>wall. You'll find that Ida the express messenger has fallen and he can't get<br/><br/>up. If you have a Traveler's Charm you'll automatically offer it to him, but<br/><br/>if you don't have one you'll need to get one. Your reward will be the oh so<br/><br/>sweet Praise points.<br/><br/>Later, talk to Ida while he's running around to challenge him to a race.<br/><br/>Tackle Ida during the race to get more Praise. Challenge him a second time and<br/><br/>avoid the urchins he drops (little cheater!), then a third time after you<br/><br/>complete Oni Island to get the Gimmick Gear and some Praise.<br/><br/>- Mika<br/><br/>Get to the south side of Shinshu Field and head towards Lake Harami. Enter the<br/><br/>Moon Shrine and talk to Mika to get his wanted list of monsters. These monsters<br/><br/>can only be found at night. The monsters are:<br/><br/> Biwamaru the Vandal: Found immediately after getting Mika's wanted list.<br/><br/> Akuzo the Interloper: North-west Shinshu Field.<br/><br/> Toya of the Short Temper: North-east Shinshu Field.<br/><br/> Onimaru the Incorrigible: Just a bit north of the Guardian Sapling.<br/><br/> Izo the String Cutter: On the beach next to Kama the pyrotechnist's house.<br/><br/>Talk to Mika after defeating all the monsters to get Gold Dust as a reward.<br/><br/>- Dojo / Onigiri Sensei<br/><br/>You can find the Dojo on the west side of Shinshu Field. Inside, the fighting<br/><br/>master himself offers to teach you new battle techniques... provided you can<br/><br/>cover the fee, of course.<br/><br/> God Technique: Fleetfoot = 10000 Yen<br/><br/> Reflector Technique: 4 Winds = 5000 Yen<br/><br/> Rosary Technique: Spirit Storm = 7000 Yen<br/><br/> God Technique: Golden Fury = 100000 Yen<br/><br/>Each technique you choose to learn will come with a brief tutorial by Onigiri<br/><br/>Sensei using a dummy.<br/><br/>- Tama<br/><br/>After running through the required quest with Tama the pyrotechnist, return<br/><br/>when you get Cherry Bomb 2. Create 2 Cherry Bombs to get some Praise. Once you<br/><br/>get Cherry Bomb 3 you can create 3 of them to get Praise and a Stray Bead.<br/><br/>Agata="<br/"><br/>- Sleepy the Bear<br/><br/>After you restore the Guardian Sapling, run up to the path that leads back to<br/><br/>Shinshu Field. That bear from the cave will be there sleeping, and ol' Issun<br/><br/>decides to name him Sleepy. Run down the hill and roll that big cabbage<br/><br/>up the hill to Sleepy. He'll take the new perch and give you Praise for your<br/><br/>troubles.<br/><br/>The next sphere you can give him is found after you close the Devil Gate near<br/><br/>Karude the hunter. Roll the walnut to Sleepy for more Praise.<br/><br/>The final sphere to give to Sleepy is a honey comb attached to a branch on<br/><br/>one of the southern islands. Bring it down with Power Slash and roll it up<br/><br/>to Sleepy to get more Praise.<br/><br/>- Kokari<br/><br/>After you restore the Tsuta Ruins and overcome the obstacle at the Narai River,<br/><br/>Kokari will be sitting at the south island for some more fishing. Here you can<br/><br/>catch fish to sell to merchants and complete the Fish Tome.<br/><br/>Taka="<br/"><br/>- Tea Master<br/><br/>After restoring Taka Pass to normal, talk to the Tea Master. She'll go on about<br/><br/>her business and a beloved Teacup. Continue east from the merchant and you'll<br/><br/>find some moles gathered around in a circle. Talk to Moley, leader of the<br/><br/>Molesters, to engage in a whack-a-mole game. Stand in the middle of the circle<br/><br/>and look for the blue mole to appear, then tackle him. It'll take a few tries<br/><br/>to get him, but after you whack him three times you should be good to go.<br/><br/>Take the Teacup back to the Tea Master to get the Golden Mushroom.<br/><br/>- Tea Customer<br/><br/>Talk to the Tea Customer after you've started looking for Canine Warriors.<br/><br/>He'll bring up a certain item he needs to give his wife... a Pinwheel.

Take the right path to find<br/><br/>a Devil Gate and Spring Girl. She'll mention that the spring used to be<br/><br/>there, but it has dried up. Go ahead and enter the gate to defeat the<br/><br/>monsters and bring back Mermaid Spring.<br/><br/>- Bingo<br/><br/>Find him at the west side of Taka Pass, next to the City Checkpoint. Use<br/><br/>Galestorm to clear away the pile of leaves in front of him then talk to him<br/><br/>to initiate a digging game, much like Mr. Bamboo's game at Sasa Sanctuary.<br/><br/>The goal here is a block of ground at the far right corner of the area. Start<br/><br/>by using a few Cherry Bombs to get him down to the lower level, but DO NOT<br/><br/>use Cherry Bombs on that bottom level. You will run the risk of trapping him<br/><br/>in a gap. Use Power Slash to break the boulder blocks and tackle or digging<br/><br/>attacks to break the rest.<br/><br/>When you reach the water blocks, use Waterspout to push him up and quickly<br/><br/>break any blocks at the top to keep him going. Continue making your way to the<br/><br/>right until you eventually reach a row of blocks at the very bottom that<br/><br/>head straight to the right. Tackle them all or Power Slash 'em to reach the<br/><br/>end, then dig at the spot where's he's standing to find the treasure.<br/><br/>- Sasa Traveler<br/><br/>Look for him directly north of the Sasa Gate, in Taka Pass.<br/><br/>Kusa="<br/"><br/>- Haruka<br/><br/>Enter Mrs. Plum's Inn after dark to find Haruka the ill-fated beauty locked<br/><br/>in the room to the right upstairs.

The flower girl will reward you with Praise.<br/><br/>- Komuso<br/><br/>Find Komuso (the helmet guy from Kamiki Village) in a bamboo patch on the way<br/><br/>down the mountain. You'll first need to defeat him at Kamiki Village to get<br/><br/>him to appear here. Beat a time of about 23 seconds to get some Praise.<br/><br/>- Kusa 5<br/><br/>After completing Oni Island, return to Kusa Village and enter the Gale Shrine.<br/><br/>Find Princess Fuse and the Kusa 5 ready to battle you again. Stock up on a lot<br/><br/>of tool items, especially Holy Bones, Vengeance Slips, and Steel Sake, before<br/><br/>deciding to fight them. Use your strongest weapon, lots of Cherry Bombs, and<br/><br/>keep equipping those Vengeance Slips to avoid getting damage.<br/><br/>After defeating the Kusa 5 (or should I say Kusa 8) you'll get a bead and some<br/><br/>Praise.<br/><br/>Ryoshima="<br/"><br/>- Dojo / Onigiri Sensei<br/><br/>You can find the Dojo on the small island on the west side of Ryoshima<br/><br/>Coast. Inside, the fighting master himself offers to teach you new battle<br/><br/>techniques... provided you can cover the fee, of course.<br/><br/> God Technique: Holy Eagle = 20000 Yen<br/><br/> God Technique: Digging Champ = 30000 Yen<br/><br/> God Technique: Fleetfoot = 10000 Yen<br/><br/> Reflector Technique: 4 Winds = 5000 Yen<br/><br/> Reflector Technique: 5 Winds = 20000 Yen<br/><br/> Rosary Technique: Spirit Storm = 7000 Yen<br/><br/> Rosary Technique: Spirit Armageddon = 30000 Yen<br/><br/> Glaive Technique: 3 Shears = 40000 Yen<br/><br/> God Technique: Wailing Mirror = 40000 Yen<br/><br/> God Technique: Golden Fury = 100000 Yen<br/><br/> God Technique: Brown Rage = 2000000 Yen<br/><br/>Each technique you choose to learn will come with a brief tutorial by Onigiri<br/><br/>Sensei using a dummy.<br/><br/>- Animal Lover<br/><br/>Find the Animal Lover along the path in west Ryoshima Coast. After closing a<br/><br/>Devil Gate at the west end of Ryoshima Coast, near the path to Sei-an City, a<br/><br/>bunch of hares will appear.

Feed it and take it to the Animal Lover to get<br/><br/>Praise and a Stray Bead.<br/><br/>- Hayate<br/><br/>Head to the west beach at Ryoshima Coast to find super fast Hayate running<br/><br/>along the beach. Talk to Hayate while he's running around to challenge him to<br/><br/>a race.

Like before, Camellia is being<br/><br/>rather rude to her little sister. Use Bloom and place a dot in front of them<br/><br/>to make a tree grow.<br/><br/>Then, get the Deluge brush power and create a rainstorm immediately after<br/><br/>you create the tree to convince Camille and get a bead from Camellia.<br/><br/>- Blossom<br/><br/>Find her just north of the Kimono House. She'll talk about her sick father<br/><br/>and that he needs Herbal Medicine. You can buy the Herbal Medicine from the<br/><br/>Tool Dealer and offer it to Blossom for some Praise points.<br/><br/>After restoring all the trees in town in Mr. Flower's side quest, return to<br/><br/>Blossom and tackle her Papa to wake him up.<br/><br/>- Charcoal Girl<br/><br/>There's a little girl wearing purple on the east side of town who runs out of<br/><br/>charcoal to draw on the ground. Buy the Charcoal from the Tool Dealer and give<br/><br/>it to her.<br/><br/>Now, when you talk to her you'll see a symbol next to her. Go to Mr. Chic<br/><br/>on the west side of town and draw that symbol on his kimono fabric. If you did<br/><br/>it correctly he'll say "something happen" in red text.<br/><br/> - Pentagram Star (start from the top of the left arm)<br/><br/> - Heart (start from the bottom and paint to the left)<br/><br/> - V symbol (start on the left)<br/><br/> - Four Circles (make sure they are connected)<br/><br/> - "Heaven" Kanji (one horizontal followed by a slightly shorter horizontal<br/><br/> below it, then one stroke that starts at the middle of the top line and<br/><br/> downward, then make a wide turn down-left when you reach the second line.<br/><br/> Start the fourth stroke from the middle of the second horizontal and make<br/><br/> a wide curve to the left)<br/><br/>Talk to her after each picture to get Praise points and eventually a Stray<br/><br/>Bead.<br/><br/>- Ferry Riders<br/><br/>The ferry is missing, but there are still people who need to get somewhere<br/><br/>using the canal. Looks like it's your time to shine! Create a Lily Pad in the<br/><br/>water in front of people and they'll hop on. Use Galestorm to guide them<br/><br/>where they are pointing, but make sure to avoid the whirlpools in the water.<br/><br/>If you get them there quickly you get 30 Praise points, however if you're too<br/><br/>slow you get less points.

His human form will not be too tough as long as you keep<br/><br/> moving.<br/><br/> Next he transforms into a large blue wolf. Keep at him with Cherry Bombs and<br/><br/> your weapon, even when he releases the ice clones to attack you.

If you stay too far away from him you'll never get a hit in.<br/><br/>- Nagi<br/><br/> Nagi's actually not as tough as his legend proclaims.

Repeat that attack and avoid the flying swords to defeat<br/><br/> Nagi and knock him out cold.<br/><br/>- Dogu<br/><br/> They're just a clay warrior like the rest of them, so use your strongest<br/><br/> glaive once again and slice them down.<br/><br/>- Ninetails<br/><br/> First you must split Ninetails apart by using Thunderstorm on the sword, then<br/><br/> destroy each spirit.
