I.   Introduction
-----------------
The Team Oni mini game is unlocked after you beat Onimusha 2 in normal 
mode.  You can play the Team Oni mini game in the special feature section. 

There are 20 levels total.  You have 5 characters to use: Jubei, Oyu, 
Kotaro, Magoichi, and Ekei.  Your character's life bar will decrease 
continuosly as time pass, just like in the Onimusha Warlord's mini game.  

There are blue pots all over the 20 levels that you can break to absorb 
the yellow souls to heal your life bar.  When you defeat all the enemies 
in a level a yellow light will appear.  This yellow light provides you 
with an opportunity to heal your character's life bar.  Everytime you 
walk into the yellow light and press X your life bar will be healed for 
approximately half life bar and you will be teleported to the next level.  
Use this yellow light wisely.  Don't waste this healing opportunity by 
walking the character that has full life bar into the yellow light, use 
the character that took some damage into the yellow light to heal.  

There are also some grey pot all over the 20 levels that releases blue 
souls for your magic attack when you break the pot.  Again, don't waste 
the blue souls on character that has full magic bar.  Use character that 
doesn't have the full magic bar to absorb the blue souls.  The blue souls 
and yellow souls disappear very quickly so make sure you absorb them fast.  

The 5 characters all have their strengths and weaknesses so switch between 
the characters to best deal with the enemies.  When you finish the Team 
Oni Mini Game you will unlock the Critical Mode which the enemies will 
only take damage if you use issen attack.

The red (pink) souls are for score only.  You don't really have to 
absorb them.

There are 5 levels in this mini game that contain item boxes.  These 
item boxes contain weapons and healing items.  These 5 levels are safe 
place that your character can stay without taking damage on the life 
bar.  Use these places to equip weapon for your characters and to 
practice their moves.

Oyu, Kotaro, Magoichi, and Ekei all have sub weapons.  Don't hesitate 
to use their sub weapons by pressing the L2 button.  You can stand far 
away from the enemies and use their sub weapons to kill the enemies 
when it is too dangerous to get close to them.

Magoichi's Goraishinki (machine gun) is a great weapon.  Goraishinki's 
magic attack is even more powerful.  Stand far away and use Goraishinki's 
magic attack to kill tough enemies.  Magoichi's Cannon only has one 
cannon bullet so use it wisely.  Use the cannon on the red bull in level 
17 or Nobunaga (the final boss) in level 20.  Make sure you target the 
cannon on the enemy and not on the blue or grey pot otherwise you will 
waste your precious cannon bullet.

Equip your character's strongest weapon as soon as you get them.  For 
example Oyu's Phirangi, Oyu's Gradius, Ekei's Halberd, Korato's 
Roga-Kunai, Magoichi's Goraishinki, and one of Jubei's weapon.

Don't let your character die.  Quickly switch to another character 
when one character is almost dead.  Use the yellow light, blue pots, 
and herb/medicine to heal the wounded character later on when you 
have the chance.

Try to save your herbs and medicine for level 17 and level 20.  If you 
are hurt on level 17 or level 20 use the herb or medicine quickly before 
it is too late.  Red bulls and Nobunaga can do huge damage in very short 
time.  Be careful.

you can switch to Magoichi and stand far way from the second red bull

-----------------------------
Level 19 (3 Item Boxes, Safe)
-----------------------------
No enemies.  Your life bar will not decrease here.
Items: Herb, Medicine, Herb

--------
Level 20
--------
Enemies: 1 Nobunaga with big sword
Blue Pot: 4
Grey Pot: 0
Best Character to use: Jubei with Dokoutsui, Magoichi with Cannon or 
Goraishinki's magic attack, Ekei's Halberd, or whatever it takes.  
Use the herb, medicine or the blue pots in the four corners immediately 
if you need to heal because Nobunaga can do a lot of damage in really 
short time with his power sword attack.  Nobunaga is a good blocker 
so run away from him and wait until he swings his big sword.  When he 
swings his sword he is open and vulnerable so run behind him at that 
time and attack him.  Repeat this process after each good hit.  
Nobunaga will die after some good hits from behind.

CONGRADULATION!!! You have beaten the Team Oni Mini Game and unlocked the 
Critical Mode.  The enemies will not take any damage unless you use ISSEN 
attack in Critical Mode and it is going to be very challenging.

I want to thank Capcom for releasing such a good sequel to the Onimusha 
series.  I also want to thank you for reading my first FAQ.  I hope this 
guide helps you to complete the Team Oni mini game to unlock the Critical 
Mode.  I can't wait to play Onimusha 3 when Capcom releases it.  I 
love to play Onimusha games.
