X. Techniques

Finisher- Jump and press down and square while jumping over downed enemy.

* Not the best finisher at all. rarely use.

Charge Attack - Hold Square and release it only when your weapon flashes

*Not the best move Ekei has.

Shoryuken - Press Up and Square together

* Very good move indeed. hits infront and behind. use for breathing room.

Kick - Press Triangle

* same as anyones kick really.

Disarm - Hold R1 and press Triangle

* Use this to make a distraction. or when an enemy has an orb you want.
  The CPU will always go for its weapon. use the time wisely.

Trip - Hold Down and press Square

* Use this for time, but only when you don't have enough room for a disarm.

Stab - Hold R1 and press Square

* Use this before starting a combo- the stab goes into a combo- useful.

Dash Attack - Press Forward, Forward and Square

* Suprise! Hit a fleeing foe with this.

Hadouken - Hold Square until weapon flashes, hold towards enemy and
           release Square

* Ekeis Hadouken is good because it floats, not slides. use it well.

Jump Attack - Press Square after jumping

* us for hitting archers while plane shifting, and soul absorbers.

Flame Ball Slash - Hold R1 and press Triangle when in possession of a Fire
                   Tactical Orb

* OOh yeah! Two powerful blats garenteed to lightly toast your enemy.

Tornado - Hold R1 and press Triangle when in possession of a Wind Tactical 
          Orb

* Send them flying. By the wya, if you hold down circle during this, he will 
  absorb almost straight after it finishes. this way you save time to get 
  those victory souls you want.

Lightning Combo - Hold R1 and press Triangle when in possession of a Thunder
                  Tactical Combo

* Send the enemy stabbity death. this can easily hit two enemys with the
  entire combo. 

XI. COMBOS

Basic Combo - Square, Square, Square, square (rythematically)

* Even if it's slow, it's damaging. final stab can hut more than one opponent.

Super combo!- Mash sqaure as fast as humanly possable.

* not as powerful as his rythemic combo but each hit will always hit..mostly..
  Fair damage and useful for keeping out of the fray in multiplayer.

Charge Attack to Finisher Move (Easy combo)
- Hold Square until the weapon starts to flash, release Square, jump over the 
  enemy and hold Down and push the Square button again.

* fair attack- But Ekeis finisher ain't that great.

Charged Stab to Finisher Move (Easy combo)
- Hold Square until the weapon starts to flash, hold R1 and release Square, 
  jump over the enemy, hold Down and push Square. 

* See above. not owrth the trouble.

Combo to finisher
- square rythemically until stun, then do finisher.

*hrm..not good... usually the regular combo won't hit totally...

super combo to finisher
- Mash square intil stun, then do finisher

*slightly better... not that great still.

Comboyuken
- do combo until stun, quickly shoryuken.

*ah, my main atack. probably Ekeis best attack. except..

Supercombyuken
-Super combo until stun, shoryuken then add a finisher if you so desire

*NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! Ekei at his finest.

XIII. Strategies

Real World Strategies:

- Ekeis ain't graceful. He is a power monster. Just overpower the enemy.
  
- Use a shoryuken or a disarm to stop an enemys attack cold. plan your move 
  from there.

- Ekeis ain't doing this for combos. JKust get those stabs in.

- Try to do massive damage with the tactical orbs, especially with the fire 
  and thunder orbs, up close to the enemy so that you can kill them 
  right away.

- Shoryuken is his best attack- best orb is lightning. watch for those babies.

- Use the Hadouken when you're facing enemies in a single plane. charge
  it up well, and it will become hard to dodge because it floats.

- Combo's are the way to go against Nobunaga. There is really not much else 
  you can do. A super combo to a shoryuken stops his from getting close.
  disarm to stop his orbs.

- Use the dash attack to stop fleeing fools.

Phantom Realm Strategies:

- Keep charging. usually if you lkill qu9ick, you wil have a short break to
  Charge your attacks.

- Always try to stab more than one opponent.

- If you can, Issen.

- Use the kick. It will make sure your orbs will hit.

- Never forget to plane switch. charge while doing so- stalling tactics.

- Use all Items you can. even a kunai dagger thrown could kill the Marcellus.
  It doesn't take a second to throw it.

- During your fight with the triple Marcelluses, Lightning orb is 
  your best buddy.
  If you can shoryuken them while they are stunned from super combo to 
  focus on one Marcellus at a time.

- So the enmy has an Item you want/ didn't want them to get? Disarm them.  
 
XIV. Boss Tactics

Chapter 4 - Ozrick

Easy fight. super combo never hurt anyone except him here.
If you see him charge up, be ready to switch plane 
the instant he moves to yours.Take out the archer to stop him 
interupting your combos.

Chapter 8 - Hecuba

This lady doesn't seem to like your shoryuken. Keep defensive and always 
use shoryuken- she hates it to bits.

Chapter 10 - Nobunaga

The only advice here is super combo-shoryuken. if he jumps to your platfrom, 
shoryuken him. stay where you are. let him come to the spear, not vice vera- 
he is invunerable to the traps, so don't follow him into them.
