Issen One Flash Mode "一閃モード" Extremely difficult mode, the most difficult mode of the game, for enemies will only be killed if you hit them with Issen One Flash attacks. Easy Mode "易しい" Get killed and continue 3 times and "Easy Mode" will be added the next time you Game Over. Strongest Equipment Mode "最強装備モード" You start new game with 烈火剣, money x 20,000, 劇薬 x 30, 身代わりの木札 x 10, all armors Lv3, bullets unlimited, arrows unlimited, and skill gage won't decrease レザースーツ (Leather Suit) Extra costume for Jyuubei, comes complete with a pair of sunglasses. Clear game with 鬼武者 (Onimusha) rank to use the Leather Suit. It is in a treasure chest at the 21st floor of the Purple Illusion Dream Dimension, just inspect the spot where you pulled out the 烈火剣 from. Oyuu Costume Change Accomplish 100% Scenario to unlock an extra costume for Oyuu. Turn into Onimusha After absorbing 5 Purple Souls, Jyuubei will transform into an Onimusha. When as an Onimusha, Jyuubei is invincible, and can perform strong attacks. When as an Onimusha, press the Triangle button to shoot energy blasts. Jyuubei will return to normal when the Onimusha gage reaches 0. Degree of Friendliness There is a hidden Degree of Friendliness meter in the game between Jyuubei and the sub-characters. The Degree of Friendliness with a sub-character determines whether he will appear when Jyuubei is in trouble to fight by Jyuubei's side. The Degree of Friendliness is altered by Jyuubei giving out items and sometimes receiving items in return. Pay attention to your conversations with the sub-characters. Give a sub-character the items he said he liked or was searching for to raise the Degree of Friendliness with him. Be careful not to give a sub-character an item he does not want, for doing so will cause the Degree of Friendliness with that sub-character to drop. Also of note, there seems to be an opposing relation between Jyuubei's Degree of Friendliness with one sub-character against another. If Jyuubei's Degree of Friendliness with Oyuu increases, his Degree of Friendliness with Kotarou decreases. And vice versa. If Jyuubei's Degree of Friendliness with Ekei increases, his Degree of Friendliness with Magoichi decreases. And vice versa. 忘れ花 (Forget Flower) If you think you gave a sub-character something wrong and caused your degree of friendliness with that sub-character to drop, give that sub-character a Forget Flower and he/she will forget the previous thing you did. 珍しいキノコ (Rare Mushroom) Give a sub-character a Rare Mushroom and that sub-character will hallucinate and see illusions, then he/she will give you an item. Using the Rare Mushroom does not effect your degree of friendliness with that sub-character. (not completely sure) Pause Game Press the Select button during the game to pause the in-game clock. When trying for a low game complete time, pause the game with the Select button. HP Tip When your character's Life Gage drops to 1/8 of the maximum, the Life Gage will start to blink. When in this condition, the character will only receive 1/2 the usual damage when hit by enemies. ------------------------------------ * Thanks to 陰陽師 (Onmyouji) for providing the locations of some of the Paintings of Beauties. * Thanks to Mao2 for pointing out the "鬼" = "Ogre" mistake.
