III. Foreword                                                            [FWRD]
Hello, and welcome to my FAQ for Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate! I've been a fan
not only of the Warriors Orochi games, but the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai
Warriors games that inspired them since I first played Dynasty Warriors 2.
Given my history with and knowledge of these series and the lasting appeal of
WO3U, I decided it would be worthwhile to share my knowledge of the game with
others.

The plot of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate picks up after the demise of Orochi X.
As the brave warriors of China, Japan, and the Mystic Realm begin to adjust to
life in Orochi's strange new world, they are attacked by a gargantuan beast
with eight serpentine heads that wipes them out in droves. Ma Chao, Sima Zhao,
and Hanbei Takenaka are the only survivors of the beast's attacks, and with a
little help from you, they might be able to raise an army powerful enough to
defeat this fearsome new foe.

Your task won't be easy, but you'll be helped by the largest cast of playable
characters yet - 145, to be exact - and your ability to travel through time. By
rewriting the history of Orochi's world, you can save your allies' lives and
add their strength and knowledge to the Resistance, as well as build up their
bonds and allow them to fight more effectively as you work to assemble your
dream team of warriors.

The multiple difficulty settings allow for battles to be scaled according to
your characters' levels, but some of them can be quite challenging. It is my
hope that this FAQ will provide you with the knowledge needed to understand the
mechanics of the game, master the characters you enjoy using most, and make
your way through the various game modes with minimal frustration.

B. In the Camp                                                           [NCMP]
If battles are the meat of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, the camp is the mead.
You'll spend a lot of time here talking to your allies, upgrading weapons, and
using growth points to strengthen your team between battles, and there are
different facilities here that can help you.

1. Blacksmith                                                            [BKSM]
A weapon may not be the only measure of a warrior's worth, but it can have a
huge impact on his or her usefulness in battle. Talk to the blacksmith to spend
your hard-earned gems on weapons; he can either sell you new ones or fuse the
ones you have, transferring slots and attributes from one weapon to another.

Most weapons are given a rating that ranges from 1-4 stars. Higher ratings mean
higher base attack, longer reach, and greater compatibility bonuses. Defeating
enemies in battle will raise the compatibility of an equipped weapon, allowing
the wielder to do more damage with it. Compatibility bonuses to attack peak at
+7 for 1-star weapons, +11 for 2-star weapons, +14 for 3-star weapons, and +18
for 4-star weapons.

In addition to the basic weapons, you can spend gems and crystals to purchase
big star weapons. Though the base attack of these weapons is low, they have
tremendous potential for growth: a big star weapon with maximum compatibility
will confer a +54 attack bonus, making it the most powerful weapon available to
most characters. As an added bonus, many big star weapons will reveal hidden
powers at maximum compatibility, such as increasing the reach of some or all of
the wielder's attacks. If you're willing to spend some time building them up,
they're a good investment for just about every character.

The difficulty of the last battle you won determines the quality of the weapons
sold by the blacksmith. Use this to your advantage to find strong weapons with
good attributes.

2. Teahouse                                                              [TEHO]
Nothing binds people together like fighting a common foe, but parties certainly
don't hurt. Talk to the owner of the teahouse to host a party and strengthen
your bonds with your allies. Four kinds of parties will be available to you as
your camp grows:

-Tea parties raise your bonds with everyone by 25. They are available at the
start of Chapter 1.
-Dinner parties raise your bonds with everyone by 50. They are available at the
start of Chapter 2.
-Banquets raise your bonds with everyone by 90. They are available at the start
of Chapter 3.
-Moon viewings raise your bond with one ally by 150. They are available at the
start of Chapter 4.

The cost of the moon viewing is fixed at 3000 gems, but the cost of the other
parties will increase as you recruit more characters.

There are three levels of bonds between allies, which are indicated by colors
that change from red to yellow to green as they grow stronger. Parties can only
raise bonds to the threshold between each level; to raise a bond to the next
level, you can either put characters on a team and bring them into battle
together, or complete a mission for an ally. Successful completion of a mission
will raise the characters' bond by 80, but failure will lower their bond by 40.
Be careful not to accept a mission unless you're sure that you can complete it.

As your allies learn the extent of your capabilities, you'll have to try harder
to impress them. This means that characters will give more challenging missions
as their bonds with your team members grow stronger. The difficulty of the
missions your allies offer, however, is based on their bonds with your active
character. Use this to your advantage to easily strengthen bonds that are
nearly maximized.

Characters with maximized bonds will perform support attacks for each other
more frequently, and will sometimes give each other power-ups - a War God's
Axe, War God's Armor, or Winged Boots - when they do. On occasion, they will
also give each other weapons after a battle. It takes time to develop strong
bonds between allies, but it's worth it in the long run.

3. Time Gate                                                             [TIGA]
Step into this glowing gateway to select a battle to fight. You can also access
it through the menu.

C. On the Battlefield                                                    [OTBF]
After selecting and equipping your team members and deciding which missions to
accept, you'll be ready to do battle. Look at the map in the upper right corner
of your screen, and you'll notice several colors. The blue and red circles
respectively represent allied and enemy units. Officers will be represented by
circles with a black border, and siege weapons will be represented by squares.
Some battles will also include a third force, whose units will be yellow in
color and may be friendly or hostile to both sides. Yellow flashes on the map
indicate where skirmishes are taking place, and green radar blips denote
objectives that you must complete to turn the tide of the battle. If you lose
track of your own position on the battlefield, all you need to do is find the
green arrow.

With a little effort, you should be able to defeat several hundred enemies in
each battle, which will earn your characters experience, skill proficiency, and
weapon compatibility. To ensure that your characters become more powerful at
similar rates, make sure that everyone on your team gets a chance to fight both
peons and officers. In addition to being worth more experience than peons,
officers drop EXP scrolls and weapons for your characters, so make it a
priority to defeat them when you meet them.

In most battles, you can achieve victory by either defeating the enemy
commander or reaching the escape point. The victory conditions will sometimes
change in the middle of the battle, so pay careful attention to the messages.

You can lose a battle in one of three ways: by running out of time, dying, or
losing your commander. Running out of time is rarely a problem, but the latter
two are real risks on higher difficulty settings. Your team members recover
life and musou when they're inactive, so if one of your characters is severely
injured, change your active character and give the wounded one a chance to
recover. Commanders range from very easy to very hard to protect, so pay close
attention to their position and movements on the battlefield and do your best
to keep them out of harm's way. If a message that your commander is in trouble
or on the verge of defeat appears, drop whatever you're doing and rush to his
or her aid. By the way, a different officer will assume the role of commander
if you include the commander in your team, so don't expect an easy escape from
your responsibility.

If you win the battle, you will return to camp after earning gems, crystals,
growth points, weapons, items, and possibly lottery tickets, which can be
exchanged for ten random weapons. If you lose the battle, you will return to
the main menu.

D. New Features                                                          [NEFE]
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate includes some features that set it apart from the
original game. Taking advantage of these new features will allow you to get the
most out of the game and raise your characters to unbelievable levels of power.

Changing your battle style will call forth your teammates to fight alongside
you. While they are on the field, they will be under AI control and can perform
double or even triple musou attacks with you if you're standing close together
with full musou gauges. You can dismiss your teammates at any time, and they
will automatically retreat to recover if they run out of life.

Switching characters after pressing T can trigger Triple Rushes, which allow
you to extend a combo and potentially even continue it indefinitely. Performing
a Triple Rush in the right order with certain teams of characters will allow
them to execute a special attack.

On rare occasions, defeated enemies will drop Scrolls of Enlightenment, which
look like stacks of gold bullion. Picking one up will cause all enemies you
defeat for the next 20 seconds to drop scrolls worth 300 EXP, which will be
automatically drawn to your active character.

Spending 100,000 gems before a battle will activate a battlefield bonus, which
increases the drop rate of Scrolls of Enlightenment and allows you to find
weapons with compatibility bonuses to attack that are much higher than normal.
Such weapons are even more powerful than big star weapons, so save up for a
battlefield bonus when you can form a team of characters who need them.

In addition to the big star weapons and the enhanced weapons you can obtain
through battlefield bonuses, it is possible to obtain 5-star weapons. These are
divided into two types: mystic weapons, which can be obtained by fulfilling
specific conditions in Story Mode; and ultimate weapons, which can be crafted
with materials found in one of the new modes. The mystic weapons have the same
maximum compatibility bonus to attack as the 4-star weapons (+18), whereas the
ultimate weapons have a maximum compatibility bonus of +99.

The weapon fusion system now includes orbs, which are most commonly found in
one of the new modes. Fusing an orb onto a weapon gives it either a +5 normal
attribute or a single rare attribute, so try to collect or craft many orbs if
you want a quick and easy way to strengthen your weapons.

The level cap for characters has been raised from 99 to 100. Upon reaching
Level 100, characters gain additional item slots (up to a maximum of six) and
can be given a promotion. Promoted characters revert to Level 1, but they gain
a second skill and will thereafter earn upgrade stones each time they level up,
which can be spent to raise a stat of your choice by 2 points (up to a maximum
of 999 Life, Attack, Defense, and Musou and 180 Speed). Each character can be
promoted up to nine times, and each promotion after the third one will confer
additional benefits:

-The 4th promotion gives a bonus to Speed.
-The 5th promotion gives a bonus to growth point earnings.
-The 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th promotions give cumulative bonuses to gem earnings.

Finally, there are two new modes in the game - Gauntlet Mode and Duel Mode -
which will be discussed in later sections.

E. Helpful Hints                                                         [HEHI]
When building your team, try to include characters with complementary types and
skills and strong bonds.

You can only have one pair of stirrups equipped at a time, and every character
on your team will benefit from it. In two-player games, each player can equip a
different pair of stirrups.

If you have a mount in battle, a green circle will indicate its position on the
map.

Capturing an enemy base will turn it into an allied base. This is generally a
good thing, but if you're trying to maximize your K.O. count, consider leaving
a few bases under enemy control.

Some enemy bases cannot be captured. Stay close to them and slaughter peons if
you're in need of experience, proficiency, or compatibility.

In two-player games, the second player's position on the map will be indicated
by a red arrow, and a red circle will indicate the position of the second
player's mount.

Look for new allies to talk to in the camp after each battle. If you're looking
at the map, their positions will be indicated by yellow circles.

Some of the sidequest battles will only be playable when the bonds between two
or three characters have been built up to the yellow level. Host parties and
bring these characters into battle together to raise their bonds rapidly - if
your camp has reached its largest size, two moon viewings and one battle as a
team will do it.

Weapons cannot be transferred between characters. Even if the characters have
identical weapons, they can only use the ones that they find or purchase.

Combos build up the TTA gauge. Even weak attackers can make themselves useful
in battle by helping your team save up for a TTA.

Use TTAs to defeat enemies whenever possible. Peons will always drop gems when
defeated this way, and officers have a chance of dropping crystals.

Characters need 800 experience to advance from Level 1 to Level 2. The
experience requirement increases with each level, peaking at 5000 experience to
reach Levels 22-100.

Choose at least one character to work with until he or she has received all
possible promotions. The benefits of promoting the character will make the
investment of time and effort well worth it.

You can accumulate up to 9,999,999 growth points, each of which can be
converted into one experience point for a character of your choice. Spend them
as you need them instead of letting them pile up.

You'll earn better weapons and items by completing battles on higher difficulty
settings. If you want great rewards, take great risks.

All characters under AI control will have higher life on higher difficulty
settings. It sounds counterintuitive, but you can increase your commander's
lasting power in battle by turning up the difficulty.

As a general rule, characters will be ready for Hard mode around Level 20 and
Chaos mode around Level 50. Other factors, such as weapon and item quality and
your own skill, may allow you to complete more difficult battles with lower-
level characters.

Upon beginning a new game and watching the opening movie, you will be thrust
into the initial battle.

Difficulty: *
Recommended Team: Ma Chao, Sima Zhao, Hanbei Takenaka
Mission Givers: Sima Zhao, Ma Chao, Hanbei Takenaka
Victory Conditions: Defeat Hydra.
Defeat Conditions: Your character is defeated.

The last members of the Resistance are determined not to go gentle into that
good night. Help them rage against the dying of the light by heading north and
cutting down Keelback, which will open the 1st Guardpost. A wall of fire will
stop you in your tracks, but you can circumvent it by turning left and jumping
off the cliff. Avoid the flaming breath of the Hydra's heads as you do battle
with Copperhead, then follow the path to reach Bushmaster. Defeating him will
open the 2nd Guardpost, and you'll find Gyuki waiting on the other side. Greet
him with your blade, and watch for flaming circles to avoid being hit by the
Hydra's fireballs. Man the ballista and open fire on the Hydra, which will blow
your siege weapon to smithereens in short order. You can find another one by
following the path to the east and eliminating Urutu to open the 3rd Guardpost.
Defeat Hooknose and Patchnose at the top of the cliff, then loop around to the
east, south, and west. Beat down Boomslang, then slice up Sidewinder to open
the 4th Guardpost and capture the other ballista. It won't do any more damage
to the Hydra than the first one, but fire away all the same.

Once the second ballista has been destroyed, the Resistance will realize that
they have no way of harming the Hydra and Sima Zhao will order a full retreat.
Kiyomori Taira will appear by the east central base and taunt you; you can
fight him if you want, but he'll return with full life a few seconds later no
matter how many times you beat him. The better option is to follow the outer
path to the northwest corner, cleaving through Diamondback and any other
officers who get in your way. Defeating Yellowbelly will open the 5th
Guardpost, and Da Ji will appear to stop you from escaping. Don't be
frightened, because as soon as you pass through the guardpost, you'll be
spirited away to victory.

This battle becomes available to replay once you view any of the endings.

B. Story Mode - Chapter 1                                                [SMC1]
This chapter focuses on the Resistance's efforts to understand the threat of
the Hydra and recruit new members.

a. Battle of Yiling                                                      [1T01]
Difficulty: *
Recommended Team: Ma Chao, Sima Zhao, Hanbei Takenaka
Mission Givers: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Kaguya
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Either Ma Chao or Ma Dai is defeated.

Kiyomori Taira has turned the Takeda cavalry against Ma Dai and Pang De. To
help them out, follow the path to the east and south and cut your way through
Keelback. When you cross the bridge into the garrison, Kiyomori will summon
Kunoichi and her ninja minions to attack you. Defeat them to open the gates,
then proceed south and deal with Masatsugu Tsuchiya and his cavalry. Continue
south, then turn west and dispatch Masateru Sanada and Masakage Yamagata to
save Ma Dai. Masatane Hara, Masatoyo Naito, and Morion will advance on you;
defeat all three and stop Nobutoyo Takeda and his cavalry when they charge.
Cross the river to reach the north bank and defeat Mamushi, Tangleweb,
Yellowbelly, and Coltan, then break the charge of Nobukado Takeda and his
cavalry.

Huang Zhong should be slain as you mop up the enemy officers on the north bank,
and the gate to the Stone Sentinel Maze will open. Follow the path through the
maze, taking lefts when it branches and cutting your way through Cottonmouth,
Nobufusa Baba, and Nobukimi Anayama as you proceed. A brainwashed Yukimura
Sanada will attack you in the courtyard; beat him into submission to open the
gate. Follow the path to the west and north, mowing down the hordes of peons
and Morinobu Nishina as you go, then defeat Kiyomori to finish the battle.

b. Battle of Yiling - Redux                                              [1T02]
Difficulty: **
Recommended Team: Pang De, Ma Chao, Kaguya
Mission Givers: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Pang De, Kaguya
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Either Ma Chao or Ma Dai is defeated.

You start much closer to the front lines in this version of the battle.
Immediately go west and defeat Masakage Yamagata, Masateru Sanada, and
Masatsugu Tsuchiya to save Ma Dai, then continue west and subdue Nobutoyo
Takeda before he charges. You should also fight off Morion, Masatoyo Naito, and
Masatane Hara as they come for you. Next, Kiyomori Taira will summon Kunoichi,
who will appear in the eastern garrison and make a beeline for Ma Dai.
Intercept and dispatch her, then follow the path to the east and north. The
catapult will soon appear near the northeast base; continue on your way and
clear out Keelback and Redback to secure a route for it. As it moves in front
of the Stone Sentinel Maze, head southwest and empty Mamushi's garrison, then
eliminate Yellowbelly, Tangleweb, and Coltan and defeat Nobukado Takeda and his
charging cavalry.

Your allies should now be assembling in front of the Stone Sentinel Maze.
Return to the catapult and lob two boulders at the gate to smash it open.
Follow the path through the maze, taking lefts when it branches and cutting
your way through Cottonmouth and Nobufusa Baba as you proceed. When you reach
the courtyard, defeat Nobukimi Anayama and Yukimura Sanada to save Huang Zhong
and open the gate. Follow the path to the west and north, mowing down the
hordes of peons and Morinobu Nishina as you go, then defeat Kiyomori to finish
the battle.

c. Battle of Ueda Castle                                                 [1T03]
Difficulty: *
Recommended Team: Sima Zhao, Zhang Liao, Sakon Shima
Mission Givers: Zhuge Dan, Wang Yuanji, Taishi Ci, Sima Zhao, Zhang Liao, Sakon
Shima
Victory Conditions: Any one of Zhuge Dan, Taishi Ci, or Wang Yuanji is
defeated.
Defeat Conditions: Defeat Dong Zhuo and Yuan Shao.

You're up against two enemy forces in this battle. They'll fight each other as
well as you, so use that to your advantage if you need to distract an officer.
From your starting position, head west and north to reach the center of the
battlefield. Defeat Xu Rong and Sheetweaver if you have a chance; if not,
ignore them for now and defeat Hu Zhen and Bloodleg as you advance north. When
you reach the residential area, wipe out Zhang Ji, Niu Fu, Fan Chou, and Dong
Yue to weaken Dong Zhuo's army, then rendezvous with Wang Yuanji in the
northwest. Clear out any officers around her, and the two feuding warlords will
appear in the northeast and southwest. While Wang Yuanji serves as a decoy and
distracts Dong Zhuo's forces, you should head south and meet Yuan Shao's army
head-on. Beat back his officers as they confront you, then defeat Yuan Shao and
the honey-tongued Hammerjaw to eliminate one threat.

At this point, Wang Yuanji should be in the center of the battlefield. Hurry
over there and protect her from Zhong Hui and Guo Si, who will appear near Dong
Zhuo's camp and charge her. Dong Zhuo and Dong Min will strike out; let your
allies keep them occupied while you wipe out Huche'er, Zang Ba, Li Su, and Hu
Feng to secure the north. With all other threats eliminated, you can dispose of
Dong Zhuo at your leisure.

d. Battle of Dongkou                                                     [1T04]
Difficulty: *
Recommended Team: Hanbei Takenaka, Xu Huang, Deng Ai
Mission Givers: Kanbei Kuroda, Hanbei Takenaka, Deng Ai, Xu Huang
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Either Kanbei Kuroda or Hanbei Takenaka is defeated.

Jia Xu believes that you're working with the demons. To disabuse him of this
notion, follow the path to the south and make sure that Deng Ai reaches the top
of the cliff safely. After he launches his boulder attack, leap down and finish
off the demoralized forces of Su Fei and Chen Wu. Ginchiyo Tachibana will
advance on your army. Cut down Xu Sheng and Dong Heng as you proceed west, then
continue on and meet Cao Xiu, Jiang Ji, and Ginchiyo Tachibana in battle. After
dealing with all three of them, head southwest and defeat Huang Gai, then make
a quick jaunt west to crush Song Xian, Sun Shao, and Xue Ti. Demon army
reinforcements will appear on the north and south banks of the river, and Jia
Xu and Himiko will set sail for the north bank. Head northeast and keep
yourself occupied by playing with Harvestman and Spinyback. By the time you're
done with them, Jia Xu's voyage should be over, and Hanbei Takenaka will
approach him. Clear out any peons around Hanbei, then proceed east and stop
Sidewinder, Botryogen, Levyne, and Galena from causing too much chaos in the
east. Himiko should be marching north now; intercept and defeat her along with
any nearby officers, then return to Hanbei's side and make sure that he has a
clear path to Jia Xu. Hanbei will convince him to join your cause, which will
trigger the appearance of an irritated Da Ji and several demon officers in the
northwest. Da Ji will go straight for Kanbei Kuroda; after wiping out her
subordinates, defeat her to seize victory.

e. Battle of Shouchun                                                    [1T05]
Difficulty: **
Recommended Team: Sima Zhao, Wang Yuanji, Kaguya
Mission Givers: Zhang Liao, Taigong Wang, Yoshitsune Minamoto, Masanori
Fukushima, Zhuge Dan, Sima Zhao, Wang Yuanji
Victory Conditions: Defeat Shuten Doji.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Taigong Wang, Yoshitsune Minamoto or Masanori
Fukushima is defeated.

This battle is short, but relatively intense. Your first order of business is
to help your allies, who are fighting Shuten Doji in the north. Defeat Keelback
by the bridge, then head northeast and mow down peons until you reach Shuten
Doji. Wail on him until he retreats into Shouchun Castle, which you can enter
through the north gate. Beat down Bushmaster, Lancehead, Sidewinder, Urutu,
Yellowbelly, and the Lieutenants before entering the inner chamber, which will
trigger Diamondback's trap. He'll lock you inside and set the castle on fire,
sapping your team's life. Cycle through characters as you wait for Taigong Wang
to open the doors, which will make Diamondback panic and flee. Several demon
generals will appear in the garrisons, and Shuten Doji will reappear in the
north. Head to the castle's east gate, eliminate Coachwhip and Mamushi, then
exit through the west gate and proceed towards Shuten Doji. Any officers or
Lieutenants you don't cut down as you proceed will fight alongside the oni, so
be ready for a great big brawl before this battle ends.

f. Battle of Nagashino                                                   [1T06]
Difficulty: **
Recommended Team: Ma Chao, Kunoichi, Kaguya
Mission Givers: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Kunoichi, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Zhou Tai
Victory Conditions: Defeat Masamune Date.
Defeat Conditions: Either Hideyoshi Toyotomi or Kunoichi is defeated.

Sun Wukong is stirring up trouble for Hideyoshi. Give the mortal monkey a hand
by heading north for Stripeleg, then east for Travertine. Guo Huai will charge
you once those two have fallen; attack him until Sun Wukong orders him to pull
back. He will continually reappear in the southwest and charge you until Sun
Wukong is defeated. Fend off his attacks as you proceed east and north and cut
down Hognose and Boomslang. Sun Wukong will stop your progress by closing the
eastern guardpost, so go west instead and clear the garrison of Massicot and
Hammerjaw to open a new path. Head northeast and save Hideyoshi Toyotomi from
Orbweaver and Yoshiaki Mogami, then go southwest and face Sun Wukong in the
garrison. He'll create two clones to help him; knock some sense into all three
monkeys, then wail on Guo Huai until he defects. Follow the northernmost path
to the west, beating down Kojiro Katakura and breaking the spell on Ranmaru
Mori as you go. Continue to the west and south, and the Date riflemen will fire
on your army, reducing their morale. Yukimura Sanada will also appear by the
gates to Masamune's main camp. Strike down Hidemune Date and Tsunenaga Hasakura
as you approach it, then beat on Yukimura until he breaks free of the spell.
The gates to Masamune Date's camp will then open, allowing you to make quick
work of him.

g. Battle of Nagashino - Redux                                           [1T07]
Difficulty: ***
Recommended Team: Zhou Tai, Sun Shangxiang, Pang De
Mission Givers: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Kunoichi, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Zhou Tai
Victory Conditions: Defeat Masamune Date.
Defeat Conditions: Either Hideyoshi Toyotomi or Kunoichi is defeated.

This battle is very similar to the original version, save for some aid from
Lianshi. Around the time you meet Guo Huai, she'll defect and make her way to
Hideyoshi Toyotomi's side. Defeat Sun Wukong and his clones before going to
help Lianshi save Hideyoshi. Follow the northernmost path to reach the enemy's
main camp, strike down Hidemune Date, and crush Tsunenaga Hasakura and Yukimura
Sanada while the riflemen are confused by Lianshi's sudden appearance. Aside
from these differences, you can use the same strategy you did in the original
battle to seize victory.

h. Battle of Odawara Castle                                              [1T08]
Difficulty: **
Recommended Team: Ginchiyo Tachibana, Huang Gai, Kaguya
Mission Givers: Hanbei Takenaka, Kai, Sun Shangxiang, Ding Feng, Xiaoqiao,
Kaguya, Huang Gai, Jia Xu, Ginchiyo Tachibana
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Kai is defeated.

The demon army is attacking the Hojo clan's home. Help them liberate it by
jaunting east from your starting position to defeat Ytterbite, then continuing
east and smashing Botryogen to open the garrison. Head northeast and squash
Dodomeki to breach Odawara's south gate. Pass through it and help Kai fight off
Copperhead, Cottonmouth, Wishbone, and Suntiger, which will take a lot of
pressure off of her. Around this time, Da Ji will seize Odawara Castle's keep
and Musashi Miyamoto will be killed. Proceed north for Keelback, then head west
and cut down Morion and Coltan to gain access to the keep. Defeat Redback on
the first floor, then ascend to the second floor and take out Levyne and Da Ji
to recapture the keep. As Kai takes refuge inside, you should head south and
sweep around to the west and north, wiping out Leaflitter, Spinyback, Bloodleg,
Goldenrod, Harvestman, and Tangleweb as you encounter them.

Once the grounds around the keep are clear, proceed west to meet Yoshihiro
Shimazu and stop his advance. Follow the path west and north, rip Sheetweaver
apart, and proceed north to face Bushmaster. Keiji Maeda will also appear to
confront you; after taking care of him, beat down Kiyomori Taira to break the
siege and finish the battle.

i. Battle of Odawara Castle - Redux                                      [1T09]
Difficulty: ***
Recommended Team: Kai, Sun Shangxiang, Hanbei Takenaka
Mission Givers: Hanbei Takenaka, Kai, Sun Shangxiang, Ding Feng, Musashi
Miyamoto, Xiaoqiao, Kaguya, Huang Gai, Jia Xu, Ginchiyo Tachibana
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Ujinaga Narita is defeated.

This battle is very similar to the original version, and the same strategy will
carry you through the first part of it. Musashi Miyamoto, however, will not die
after you save Ujinaga Narita; help him out by heading south after defeating
Keelback and then looping around to the west and north. Cut down Leaflitter and
Bloodleg, then Goldenrod, Tangleweb, and Harvestman to rescue Musashi. Da Ji
will become enraged and charge Ujinaga Narita; defeat her as soon as she steps
out of the keep, along with any enemy officers that your allies don't deal with
first. Once Ujinaga Narita is safely inside the keep, proceed to the west and
south to intercept Yoshihiro Shimazu, then finish the battle as outlined above.

2. Sidequest Battles                                                     [SIB1]
a. Breakthrough at Yiling                                                [1I01]
Difficulty: **
Recommended Team: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Xu Shu
Mission Givers: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Huang Zhong, Xu Shu
Victory Conditions: Ensure Ma Chao reaches the escape point.
Defeat Conditions: Ma Chao is defeated.

The demon army has Ma Chao surrounded, but with a little help from you, he'll
make it out alive. Start by breaking through Diamondback and Goldenrod, then
snap Wishbone and Massicot to open the western gates of the Stone Sentinel
Maze. Wallop Coachwhip, Boomslang, and Stripeleg in the courtyard, then stop
Patchnose, Hooknose, and Keelback when they appear in the northwest to pursue
you. Work your way through the maze until you reach the eastern gate, which you
can open by cutting down Hognose, Levyne, and Kornerupine when they ambush you.
After escaping the maze, clear Orbweaver, Suntiger, Travertine, and Bismuth
from the garrisons and the surrounding area, then follow Ma Chao to the east.
Sidewinder and several other generic enemy officers will arrive in the west,
and Ma Dai will move to engage them. You can assist him if you choose, and he
may need the assistance when Morion, Ytterbite, and Coltan advance on him.
Meanwhile, Ma Chao will be fighting Spinyback and Harvestman, and he should
just about be finished with them by the time you and Ma Dai have wiped out the
pursuing officers. Hurry to Ma Chao's side and help him finish his fight so he
can continue advancing. He'll be attacked by Lancehead, Mamushi, Dodomeki, and
Gyuki as he approaches the escape point, but once you're done beating them
down, he's free to go.

b. Battle of Tetorigawa                                                  [1I02]
Difficulty: **
Recommended Team: Ma Chao, Ma Dai, Kaguya
Mission Givers: Pang De, Ma Chao
Victory Conditions: Find a siege weapon.
Defeat Conditions: Either Pang De or Ma Chao is defeated.

Pang De and Ma Chao need a wheeled catapult to save Huang Zhong. Stay close to
them as you head west and crush Coachwhip to capture the ballistae, which will
make quick work of his troops. Next, head south for Urutu, and you'll see an
event in which catapults begin opening fire on your allies. Continue south and
east, carving up Bushmaster and Yellowbelly and blocking to avoid taking damage
from the arbalests. Copperhead's defeat will stop them, after which you should
swim to the south bank of the river and take out Hognose to stop the catapults.
Continue east until Gyuki closes the gate, then turn north and pummel Patchnose
in the garrison. This will allow the engineers to build a catapult, which can
demolish the gate in two shots. Devastate Gyuki as well, watching out for siege
weapon fire as you fight him, then defeat Bushmaster in the southeast garrison
to capture some more ballistae. Exit to the west, climb the hill, and beat up
Hooknose to stop the siege weapons from firing on your allies. Continue west,
and Dodomeki will ambush you. Defeat him along with Leaflitter and Sidewinder,
then brutalize Bismuth to access the southwest garrison. Clear out Orbweaver
and Goldenrod, avoiding the fiery attacks of the juggernauts as you do, then
climb inside one of them and take it up the northern path to reach Diamondback.
With an indestructible siege weapon at your disposal, he won't stand a chance
against you.

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Yiling - Redux.

c. Battle of Nanjun                                                      [1I03]
Difficulty: ***
Recommended Team: Xiahou Ba, Magoichi Saika, Sun Quan
Mission Givers: Xiahou Yuan, Xiahou Ba, Magoichi Saika
Victory Conditions: Defeat Sun Wukong.
Defeat Conditions: Xiahou Yuan is defeated.

Xiahou Ba needs your help to rescue his father. Accompany him along the path to
the west and break Stripeleg, then continue west to find Xiahou Yuan and help
him fight off Gyuki, Hooknose, and Travertine. A Handmaiden will appear in the
garrison; you'll have to keep her alive to win the battle. She'll also ask you
to free her sister, at which point the two garrisons to your north will open
their gates. Make your way to the eastern one and beat down Bushmaster, then
loop around to the west for Keelback, Leaflitter, Urutu, and Copperhead. Cross
the river to the east; Bismuth will appear in the west to attack the Handmaiden
in the garrison, but Magoichi's riflemen will distract him. Defeat Patchnose
and Bloodleg in the east garrison, then follow the path to the north and west
and clear Hognose, Boomslang, and Dodomeki from the northernmost garrison to
free the Handmaiden's sister. She, too, must be protected, though she's not
likely to face any danger for the rest of the battle. Sun Wukong will charge
the southern garrison as you proceed west; defeat Nosean to open the gates to
the enemy camp, then exit to the south and defeat Orbweaver, Redback, and
Bismuth (if your allies haven't done so already) as you chase after Sun Wukong.
Cut him down, and victory is yours.

d. Breakthrough at Chibi                                                 [1I04]
Difficulty: ****
Recommended Team: Cao Ren, Xiahou Ba, Katsuie Shibata
Mission Givers: Cao Ren, Xiahou Ba, Katsuie Shibata
Victory Conditions: Defeat Guan Yu and Sun Quan.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Cao Ren, Xiahou Ba or Katsuie Shibata is
defeated.

This battle is harder than it looks at first glance, but a fast mount or a fast
team member will make it much easier. Start by slicing apart Sheetweaver, then
head to the southern bank, capture the two bases, and drive off all of the
enemy officers except Sun Quan. Let Katsuie Shibata handle him while you return
to the boats and work your way east to Guan Yu, taking care of Liao Hua and
Leaflitter as you go. Kiyomori Taira, Sun Wukong, and several other enemy
officers will appear once Guan Yu and Sun Quan are defeated, and Patchnose will
collapse the bridge to the southern shore. For now, ignore Sun Wukong and head
west for Cheng Yin, then defeat Gyuki and Yang Qiu when they arrive to lure out
Hooknose and boost Katsuie's morale. Head north and crush Levyne to stop the
demon army from launching its ships. Sun Wukong will create three phantom
doubles and send them to attack you. Beat them back along with any other nearby
officers, then cross over to the northern bank. Follow the shoreline west to
regroup with Katsuie and help him fight off the attacking officers, then double
back to the east and cut through Guan Xing, Spinyback, and Mamushi to reach the
escape point. Guan Yu and Sun Quan will reappear to block it off, but you
should have little trouble handling them before Kiyomori and Sun Wukong catch
up to you.

e. Battle of Mt. Niutou                                                  [1I05]
Difficulty: *****
Recommended Team: Bao Sanniang, Cai Wenji, Ayane
Mission Givers: Nene, Bao Sanniang, Daqiao, Himiko
Victory Conditions: Find Guan Suo.
Defeat Conditions: Either Nene or Bao Sanniang is defeated.

Bao Sanniang is searching for her missing husband. She thinks he's in one of
the eight garrisons, and you can decide which ones you want to search in which
order. I recommend going north for Kornerupine and Ytterbite, then east for
Orbweaver and Galena. Continue east and dispatch Suntiger and Cao Ren when you
reach the next garrison, then turn south and deal with Bismuth and Xiahou Ba.
Guan Yu will appear in the northeast; smack him around to make Guan Suo appear
by the central northern garrison. All of the garrisons' gates will open, and
Sun Wukong will charge you. Defeat him to win the battle.

f. Invasion of Mikatagahara                                              [1I06]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Kiyomori Taira, Keiji Maeda, Masamune Date
Mission Givers: Kiyomori Taira, Keiji Maeda, Masamune Date
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Kiyomori Taira is defeated.

Keiji Maeda and Masamune Date long for the days when Orochi walked the land,
and Kiyomori Taira might be able to accommodate them. To help him, head east
and take out Jia Kui, Hao Zhao, and Yu Jin to break through the garrison. Keiji
and Kiyomori take the western path to the south while Masamune takes the one in
the west; you can follow whichever path you want, but it's better to stay on
Kiyomori's path until you've fought off Guo Huai's ambush troops. After doing
so, continue pressing south and crushing any enemies in your way. The southern
garrison's gates will open once you've defeated all of the officers outside,
but instead of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, you'll find Ranmaru Mori, Nobumori Sakuma,
Shigemasa Nakagawa, and Koroku Hachisuka inside. Defeat Ranmaru to open the
gates, then chase down Hideyoshi as he flees toward the escape point in the
east. You'll have to overcome Wang Yi and Wen Yang to get past the garrison,
and Kiyomori should master his mind-control sorcery around the time you catch
up to Hideyoshi, and a Date rifle squad will appear to stop him from escaping.
Seize the opportunity to send him limping off the battlefield.

g. Breakthrough at Mikatagahara                                          [1I07]

Victory Conditions: Ensure Guo Huai, Ranmaru Mori and Hideyoshi Toyotomi reach
the escape point.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Guo Huai, Ranmaru Mori, Hideyoshi Toyotomi or
Wang Yi is defeated.

Kiyomori Taira's army is trying to stop Guo Huai, Ranmaru Mori, and Hideyoshi
Toyotomi from reaching Nagashino. Guide them to victory by following them north
to rendezvous with Wang Yi, cutting down Orbweaver, Patchnose, and any other
enemy officers who follow you. You'll receive a report of an allied officer
fighting in the northwest; get past Keiji Maeda in the garrison and hurry to
Huang Quan's side to save him from Kojuro Katakura, then defeat Tsunenaga
Hasekura and Hognose to assist Liu Zhang and Dong He. Kiyomori Taira will
appear by the escape point in the northeast; charge east through Masamune Date
and Wen Yang to reach him, then pound him into submission and make good your
escape.

h. Struggle for Ueda Castle                                              [1I08]

Recommended Team: Wang Yuanji, Taigong Wang, Ma Dai
Mission Givers: Wang Yuanji, Kaguya, Ginchiyo Tachibana, Hanbei Takenaka
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Either Wang Yuanji or Kaguya is defeated.

An unknown enemy has captured Ueda Castle. Take back what's rightfully yours by
heading south and crushing Cottonmouth, then continuing west and eliminating
Ytterbite. Don't worry about the third party forces; for now, they're friendly
to you. Kaguya will notice that the doors to the castle are sealed with magic,
but the enemy army will soon open them to launch an all-out attack. Fight back
until they flee, at which point the third party forces will turn against you.
Race around the battlefield defeating them and helping your allies as needed,
and Kaguya will detect the presence of a space-time warp in the middle of the
battlefield. Hurry over there to trigger a cutscene in which Seimei Abe will
appear, after which Yuan Shao's main army will arrive. Seimei Abe will summon
shikigami, which will help you fight off Bloodleg, Huntsman, Sidewinder, Uturu,
and Sheetweaver if you stay close to them. Once things in the center settle
down, head east to scatter Leaflitter and stop Yan Liang's assault, then turn
south and dispatch Nosean and Wen Chou as you attack Yuan Shao from the north.
Even with humans and demons protecting him together, he'll fall quickly.

i. Invasion of Shouchun                                                  [1I09]
Difficulty: *********
Recommended Team: Shuten Doji, Gyuki, Dodomeki
Mission Givers: Shuten Doji, Dodomeki, Gyuki
Victory Conditions: Defeat Cao Ren.
Defeat Conditions: Either Diamondback or Shuten Doji is defeated.

Orochi's minions are trying to help Shuten Doji remember his past. You can help
them jog his memory by flushing Wang Zhong out of the garrison as you advance
south, then following your allies west and south until the Wei officers begin
to converge on them. Pick a place to make a stand and cut them down as they
come; any of the nearby garrisons are good locations. Diamondback will soon
face an attack in the southwest, so rush to his side and defeat Xiahou Ba, Cai
Wenji, and any nearby generic officers to save him. Follow him to the northeast
to meet Cao Ren, Zhang Cheng, Yang Xiu, and Chen Zao as they charge. Pulverize
them all, and victory is yours.

j. Rescue at Taoshui                                                     [1I10]

Mission Givers: Sun Shangxiang, Zhou Tai, Ding Feng, Kai
Victory Conditions: Defeat Lianshi.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Sun Shangxiang, Xu Sheng, Song Qian, or Su Fei is
defeated.

Your allies can be killed quickly in this battle, so make sure you get off to a
fast start. Jump off the cliff and head east, then defeat Keelback to save Xu
Sheng. Continue to the east and dispatch Urutu to save Song Qian, then press on
and squash Sidewinder to save Su Fei. Spinyback, Tangleweb, and Leaflitter will
appear in the northeast; swim across the river and meet them all as they
advance. Swim back to the south bank and defeat Yellowbelly, then follow the
elevated path by Song Qian's garrison, pummel Patchnose, and climb the ladder.
Reinforcements will appear; head west, crush Copperhead, and cross the bridge.
Proceed south, maul Massicot, then turn west and approach Lianshi. She'll throw
caution to the winds and charge you as you close in; defeat Hooknose and her to
seize victory.

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Nagashino - Redux.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Masamune Date.
Defeat Conditions: Either Guo Huai or Ranmaru Mori is defeated.

The former puppets are rebelling against their former master with the help of
their allies, and you'll have to be quick to aid them. As soon as the battle
starts, hurry north and west, then maul Massicot to open the garrison in which
Guo Huai is trapped and strike down Stripeleg and the Sun Wukong clone to save
him. Cut your way through Masakage Rusu and Patchnose and avoid the attacks of
the the rifle squad as you make your way to Ranmaru Mori, then fight your way
through Yukimura Sanada to reach another Sun Wukong clone and save Ranmaru.
Hurry to Guo Huai's side and help him in his fight with Tsunenaga Hasekura,
then rush north to dispatch Hidemune Date and the last Sun Wukong clone.
Yukimura will have reappeared by now; pummel him into sensibility to open the
gates to the Date army's main camp. You can then run around the battlefield and
mop up the remaining enemy officers, or go straight for Masamune Date if you're
ready to call it a day.

Victory Conditions: Rescue Munenori Yagyu and Shigekata Togo.
Defeat Conditions: Either Munenori Yagyu or Shigekata Togo is defeated.

Save the reinforcements, and you save Musashi Miyamoto. To make sure the rescue
mission is a success, head east and help Muneyori Yagyu fight off Leaflitter,
Bloodleg, and Sheetweaver. Follow him east past Hammerjaw and Bismuth, then
head south until Gyuki triggers a landslide. Climb up the cliff and defeat him
to stop it, then go defeat Redback and in the west and proceed southwest for
Massicot. Dodomeki will attack with fireballs from the top of the cliff, and
enemy reinforcements will appear in the west. Cut down Nosean as you make your
way to the top of the cliff, where you can defeat Dodomeki and stop the
fireballs. Help your allies overcome Lancehead if necessary, then follow them
south to the docks. Diamondback, Morion, Ytterbite, and Coltan will ambush you;
beat them all back and board the boat. Himiko will appear by the eastern docks
with Galena and Botryogen and set sail in a boat of her own. When you reach the
south bank, clear out any officers around Shigekata Togo, then intercept Himiko
and her friends when they charge you. Drive her off, and victory is yours.

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Odawara Castle - Redux.

Defeat Conditions: Either Lu Meng or Taishi Ci is defeated.

The demon army has Lu Meng surrounded! Help him break through by heading south,
crossing the bridge, and striking down Stripeleg. Continue east for Harvestman;
Kotaro Fuma will appear in the northeast and stop Lu Meng's progress by
destroying the northeastern bridge. Continue east, then turn south and follow
the path through Huntsman's garrison and across the bridge. Make a detour to
the west to deal with Redback, then follow the path to the east and north and
save Lu Meng from Travertine, Morion, and Leaflitter. Follow him to the south
and west, defeating Dodomeki and Levyne when they appear. He'll march north
until Kotaro reappears and sets the bridge on fire, at which point you should
backtrack to the south and cross the other bridge. Defeat the Defense Captain
to escape from the garrison, then proceed south along the path and crush a
second Defense Captain and Keelback as you do. Cross the bridge to the north
and take down Galena, Ytterbite, and Copperhead when they cross your path. As
you close in on the escape point, Kotaro Fuma will ambush you with Nosean and
Botryogen. If you can handle these three, Lu Meng will have no problems
escaping.

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Hasedo - Redux.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Da Ji.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Jia Xu, Yoshihiro Shimazu, or Ginchiyo Tachibana
is defeated.

Da Ji is making a stand against you. Overcome her by heading west and south to
skewer Lancehead once the battle begins, then entering the Stone Labyrinth to
the south. The moving walls will determine where you can go; try to take down
Orbweaver and Stripeleg as you fight your way to Himiko in the southwest
chamber. Defeating her will render the Stone Labyrinth inactive and allow you
to proceed west for Da Ji, who will teleport to the southeast and summon
Achilles as you approach her. Nemea will also appear to help you battle
Achilles, Motoharu Kikkawa, and Munekatsu Nomi. Wail on Achilles until he
flees, then dispatch the less threatening officers. Let your allies handle Bao
Sanniang when she appears in the east, and proceed south to stop Terumoto Mori
from luring Ginchiyo into an ambush. Crush his fellow clan members when they
reveal themselves, then head east for Da Ji. She has obscenely high stats, but
you're not supposed to defeat her here. Stand against her until she teleports
to the southeast temple, where she'll magically set fire to the bridges and
cause flame geysers to erupt from the ground. Be wary of them as you advance
east and vanquish Hognose and Masayori Yoshimi. Take down Keelback in the
south, then head east and defeat Motonari Mori and Michiyoshi Kuchiba to clear
the gate. Da Ji will create a barrier in front of the temple and summon a
revitalized Achilles as you approach. Defeat him to dispel the barrier, then
enter the temple and deal with his mistress.

b. Battle of Anegawa                                                     [2T02]

Toyotomi
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira and Sun Wukong.
Defeat Conditions: Yukimura Sanada is defeated.

Kiyomori Taira is up to his old tricks again. Help Yukimura thwart them by
heading north and east and pummeling Toshiie Maeda until Kiyomori calls him
back. Next, go east and beat on Sun Wukong and his doubles until they vanish.
When he reappears in the northeast, Toshitsune and Toshinaga Maeda will flee,
and Kiyomori will use his magic to control Yan Liang and Tsuneoki Maeda. Sun
Wukong will teleport and make preparations for some sorcery of his own; defeat
Yan Liang as you proceed east and south to reach him. He'll use his magic to
control Hua Xiong and Xiahou He; do your best to ignore them and press the
attack until he falls.

Defeating Sun Wukong will trigger Ryu Hayabusa, Zuo Ci, and Benkei to appear in
the northeast and attack Kiyomori Taira, who will lose control of Cai Wenji and
teleport to the northwest corner of the battlefield. Head north and strike down
Toshitsune Maeda, Hooknose, Keelback, and Kanetsugu Naoe, who will join your
forces once he regains his senses. Proceed west and clear out Tsuneoki Ikeda,
Sidewinder, Coachwhip, and Patchnose, then backtrack to the east and north for
Toshinaga Maeda. Go west and beat down Toshiie Maeda and Urutu; Toshiie will
join your forces after being defeated. Follow the northernmost road west along
the edge of the battlefield, knocking down Gyuki to gain access to the enemy's
main camp. Kiyomori Taira awaits you inside with Hognose and Boomslang; break
the evil sorcerer's body just as you did his spells.

c. Battle of Hasedo                                                      [2T03]

Mission Givers: Taigong Wang, Sima Zhao, Zhuge Dan, Yoshitsune Minamoto
Victory Conditions: Defeat Diamondback and Shuten Doji.
Defeat Conditions: Taigong Wang is defeated.

Taigong Wang wants to capture Shuten Doji. Help him by heading northeast and
defeating Tsunachika Kaiho, then entering the garrison to the northeast and
beating down Nagamasa Azai when he appears. Lu Meng will be slain around this
time; keep the mourning to a minimum as you proceed northwest to engage
Hooknose, Sheetweaver, and Kornerupine. After overcoming all of them, continue
north to meet Wang Ping, Leaflitter, and Urutu, and send them to join their
allies. Next, enter the garrison to the east and cut down Kazumasa Isono to
open the gate and lure Kiyomasa Kato. Continue south and east along the path,
defeating Yellowbelly and Liu Yin as you meet them, then deal with Galena,
Kiyomasa Kato, and Kiyohisa Kimura as they approach. Zhuge Dan will launch his
surprise attack, which will demoralize Boomslang's and Matabei Goto's troops.
Defeat the officers while their pants are down, and Diamondback will begin to
flee toward the escape point in the southeast. Enter the eastern garrison and
cut your way through Liu Min and Liu Shan in pursuit of him, then head south
and take out Bismuth to open the gates. Continue south, defeating Spinyback as
you go, and advance on Diamondback and Coachwhip. Ayane will appear to aid you
as you approach them; do your best to deal with Diamondback here, or he'll
continue to flee and you'll have to cut down more officers as you chase him.
defeating him will weaken Shuten Doji, who should be locked in battle with
Taigong Wang. Proceed west up and down the two staircases, then lower the
drawbridge and help your allies pummel the oni until he makes his escape.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Diamondback and Shuten Doji.
Defeat Conditions: Taigong Wang is defeated.

Lu Meng's forces will slow Diamondback's progress to the escape point, making
it easier to intercept him as he flees. Aside from that, the same strategy you
used in the original version of this battle will win the day.

e. Battle of Nanzhong                                                    [2T05]

Mission Givers: Nemea, Kai, Sun Shangxiang, Kaguya
Victory Conditions: Defeat Da Ji.
Defeat Conditions: Da Ji reaches the escape point.

This fox hunt is a race against time. Make the most of your limited resource by
heading southeast and defeating Tangleweb and Redback, then proceeding east for
Hammerjaw and Massicot. Go north at the eastern fork and beat down Levyne and
Travertine as you make your way to the arena, where you will face Achilles.
Proceed north after vanquishing him, and Himiko will appear to ambush you.
Beware the archers as you battle her and Hidemoto Mori, then go through the
gates that open. Terumoto Mori will launch an ambush as you proceed north;
defeat him and continue on to reach Motoyasu Mori. Throttle him and Masayori
Mori, then enter the garrison and deal with Motonari Mori, who will be much
easier to overcome without backup. Cut down Kornerupine, Bismuth, and Morion as
you proceed to the west. Avoid the archers as you follow the path to the east,
and beat Himiko into submission when you meet her for the second time. Finally,
catch up to Da Ji while she's busy fighting Zhurong and kick her posterior.

f. Battle of Mt. Dingjun                                                 [2T06]

Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Either Ma Chao or Joan of Arc is defeated.

Kiyomori Taira is making his stand at the top of a mountain. Help your allies
lay him low by heading south and disposing of Nosean, then backtracking to the
north and following the path to the west. Mow down Sheetweaver and Gao Ding as
you proceed, then cross the bridge and defeat Ma Liang and Yu Fan. Cut down
Spinyback and follow the path up Mt. Chaqi, avoiding the attacks of the French
and demon soldiers. Sun Wukong will kill Magoichi Saika when you reach the
summit; avenge his death by beating the monkey down when he charges Joan of
Arc. Descend the mountain and head southeast to find Fu Shiren and Niu Jin, and
make a quick jaunt to the east for Orbweaver after dealing with them. Capture
Xiahou Ba when he appears in the west, and Sun Wukong will appear in the
southwest and strengthen the French troops with his sorcery. Joan of Arc will
charge him in a rage; cut your way through Goldenrod as you follow her down the
western path, and defeat Sun Wukong to restore the French to normal. Kiyomori
will open the gates to Mt. Dingjun and send Sun Quan and Guan Yu to fight you;
vanquish Cao Tai and Tian Yu as you head east to confront the brainwashed
heroes, then follow the path up Mt. Dingjun. Defeat Mamushi and pierce Cao
Ren's and Zhang Da's defenses as you proceed, which will leave only Hognose and
Kiyomori Taira. You know how to handle them.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Either Ma Chao or Joan of Arc is defeated.

You start much closer to Mt. Chaqi in this version of the battle. Turn around
and defeat Spinyback at the foot of the mountain, then follow the path to the
summit and enter the garrison through the south gate. Defeat Sun Wukong to
rescue Magoichi Saika, who will assist your allies in the east. The strategy
for the original version will suffice for the rest of this battle.

h. Battle of Xuchang                                                     [2T08]
Difficulty: ****
Recommended Team: Nagamasa Azai, Masanori Fukushima, Zhuge Dan
Mission Givers: Nagamasa Azai, Taigong Wang, Liu Shan, Kiyomasa Kato, Ayane
Victory Conditions: Defeat Dong Zhuo and Shuten Doji.
Defeat Conditions: Nagamasa Azai is defeated.

Your mission here, should you choose to accept it, is to sneak behind enemy
lines while your allies launch a diversionary attack at the gates. You can
ignore your mission and leap into the fray with your allies if you choose, but
if you want to follow Nagamasa Azai's plan, silence Katsuie Shibata and Li Ru
as you head north, then enter Xuchang through the western gate after Jiang Wei
is discovered and killed.

There are six garrisons within the walls, and each one of them is protected by
a Defense Captain. Your goal is to free all of the hostages without letting the
wandering Messengers alert Dong Zhuo to your presence. If one of them sees you,
slay him immediately or be prepared to face stiff resistance. You can find Nene
in the northwest garrison, Xingcai in the central eastern garrison, and Oichi
in the northeast garrison. Once all three of the women are free, Dong Zhuo will
launch an all-out attack to recapture them. Meet his army head-on, wiping out
his officers as they charge through the gate. Dong Zhuo and Zhong Hui are the
only ones who might pose a threat, but even they won't be too much of a problem
as long as you deal with archers around them first. The fat man's defeat will
make Diamondback flee, and he'll order Shuten Doji to follow him. You'll lose
the battle if he escapes, so dash to the northwest and beat him into submission
before he slips through your fingertips again.

If you rescue Oichi before defeating Katsuie Shibata, he will join your forces
for the remainder of the battle.

the same strategy you used in the original version of the battle will win the
day here.

j. Battle of Sekigahara                                                  [2T10]

Feng, Motonari Mori, Achilles
Victory Conditions: Defeat Nezha.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Da Ji, Himiko, or Hanbei Takenaka is defeated.

In an unexpected turn of events, Da Ji needs your help to survive. Assist her
by heading south to confront Monocerus and Lupus, then repelling Grus and
Lacerta as they charge Himiko and heading southeast to protect Hanbei Takenaka
from Phoenix. Da Ji will exhaust herself by teleporting to the southeast

save her. Nezha, who will have defeated Achilles and Lu Bu by this point, will
charge Da Ji. Head west to meet his charge, defeating Mensa, Pavo, Lyra, and
Tucana as you advance, then break his cybernetic body.

Difficulty: ****
Recommended Team: Sakon Shima, Yoshitsune Minamoto, Zhuge Dan
Mission Givers: Taigong Wang, Shuten Doji, Sima Zhao, Wang Yuanji, Sakon Shima,
Yoshitsune Minamoto
Victory Conditions: Defeat Hydra.
Defeat Conditions: Either Taigong Wang or Shuten Doji is defeated, or the
Yashio'ori is destroyed.

The Resistance's secret weapon is almost ready for testing...and not a moment
too soon! Head south to protect it, intercepting Lancehead as he charges Shuten
Doji and dealing with Boomslang, Mamushi, and Gyuki when they arrive from the
west. Avoid the Hydra's fireballs as you continue south for Bushmaster, then
turn your attention east. Take care of Masamune Date and Copperhead, then cut
down Cottonmouth and Coltan as they advance. Sweep the west and east a few more
times to clear out Stripeleg, Keiji Maeda, Dodomeki, and Suntiger as they
appear, then let your allies handle Orbweaver as you man the Yashio'ori. Use
bursts of fire to whittle down the Hydra's life and shoot down the fireballs it
spits, and fire your beam at its head when it turns purple and rears back in
pain. You'll make short work of it this way.

Destroying the Hydra's head doesn't end the battle, however. Orochi will appear
in the center of the battlefield, and he'll receive support from Masamune Date
in the east and Keiji Maeda in the west. Unload on the Serpent King with
everything in your arsenal to put him down - if your True Triple Attack gauge
is full, this is an excellent time to use it.

you. Advance to the northwest garrison, defeat Spinyback, then head south for
Orbweaver and veer east. Clear a path by clearing Huntsman from the garrison,
and beat up Botryogen on your way to the summit. The demons will spring an
ambush when Ginchiyo enters the garrison, and Da Ji will tell Muneshige that
his wife is in danger when he appears. Defeat Leaflitter and Massicot outside
the garrison to open the gates, then save Ginchiyo from Urutu, Harvestman, and
Stripeleg. Muneshige Tachibana will rendezvous with you, at which point you'll
be ready to confront Da Ji. Head west, knock out Bloodleg, and loop around to
the south and east, taking down Lancehead and any other officers who get in
your way. Cut down Goldenrod and Keelback, then show Da Ji what happens to
villianous schemers.

Achilles is itching for a fight, and Da Ji is happy to oblige him. Help her
sate his hunger for blood by heading west and north and defeating Zhu Ling near
the bridge, then continuing west for Tsurusada Totoki and Yoshinori Otomo to
capture the southern garrison. Help your allies finish off Ietada Ando, then
make for the southwest garrison and repel the ambush that Toyohisa Shimazu and
Iehisa Shimazu will launch. Double back and follow Da Ji to the east, clearing
Yue Jin from her path to ensure that she'll reach Bao Sanniang and prevent her
from defecting. Continue north, taking out Jiang Ji and Yu Jin as you do, and
the Resistance army's main unit will arrive in the north. Intercept Jia Xu as
he advances south, then make your way to Da Ji's side and help her fight off
Yoshihiro Shimazu. Press on, beat back Goemon Ishikawa and Shirojiro Chaya, and
hunt down Ginchiyo Tachibana as soon as you're ready to end the battle.

Zuo Ci has enlisted the aid of Ryu and Benkei to disrupt Kiyomori Taira's
sorcery. Help them out by working your way east, cutting your way through
Lancehead, Urutu, and Mamushi to open the gates to the altar. Deal with
Diamondback and Kiyomori after the cutscene, then hurry south and strike down
Sidewinder on your way to beat some sense into Kanetsugu Naoe. Continue south
to reach the Resistance's main camp and protect Yukimura Sanada from the Sun
Wukong clones and any other enemy officers who are threatening him. Once the
enemies have been cleared, proceed northwest and wipe out every enemy officer
you meet. Defeating Toshiie Maeda will trigger a Resistance counterattack; use
the opportunity to cut through Dodomeki and Gyuki and break into the northwest
garrison, where you can put an end to Kiyomori's wicked sorcery.

Defeat Conditions: Any one of Ding Feng, Lianshi or Zhuge Ke is defeated.

The warriors of Wu are ready to reclaim their homeland. Give them a hand by
charging north and neutralizing Nosean as you make your way toward Tangleweb.
Next, loop around to the north and west, clear Cottonmouth from the garrison,
and toward the central garrison for Botryogen. Spinyback, Patchnose, and
Ytterbite will arrive as reinforcements in the southwest; ignore them for now
and head east to help Lianshi fight off Mamushi, then hurry west to meet
Rachel, who will help you crush the enemy officers in and around Wu's main
camp. Kiyomori Taira will appear in the north to strengthen his allies with
magic; deal with Hognose, Orbweaver, Massicot, Travertine, and any stragglers
in the south, then follow your allies north to mop up Kiyomori and any
remaining enemies.

Defeat Conditions: Goemon Ishikawa is defeated.

Goemon and Hideyoshi are hunting for the demons' treasure. Help them find it by
heading north and clobbering Coachwhip. Follow Goemon southwest and beat down
Bushmaster in the garrison, and intercept Hognose when he appears in the east
and advances on you. Enter the garrison to discover Sanzang, which will trigger
the appearance of the demon army's main forces. Stripeleg and Spinyback will
reach you first; beat them back and follow your allies to the south, west, and
up the ladder, defeating Boomslang and Lancehead to clear a path. Follow your
allies across the bridge to reach Bismuth; wipe him out and repel Patchnose and
Leaflitter when they attack. Proceed south and west, defeating Urutu, Huntsman,
and Ytterbite to save Ling Tong from the southwest garrison. Another wave of
demon troops will arrive; fight off Massicot, Galena, and Redback as they come
for you and make your way toward the escape point in the southeast. Cut down
Botryogen to keep Sanzang moving, then defeat Wishbone and Sun Wukong when they
appear to make good your escape.

Defeat Conditions: Any one of Nemea, Ayane, Diaochan, or Chen Gong is defeated.

Something is drawing the attention of the demon army. Find out what it is by
beating down Bismuth as soon as the battle starts, then making a quick jaunt
south for Hooknose before heading for the northeastern garrison. Drive out
Boomslang to capture it, and Diamondback will send Kornerupine to deal with
you. Stop his advance, and Tangleweb will come charging out of the eastern
checkpoint. Break his charge and follow the clifftop path over the bridges to
reach the southwest garrison, which you should forcibly take from Diamondback
and Spinyback to cut off the demons' reinforcements. Hurry north to your main
camp and cut down any enemies in your way, then repel the attacking officers.
Once they're all out of the picture, make your way south and quell Storm, then
eliminate Gyuki and climb the structure to meet Kasumi. Help her fight off
Goldenrod and the rest of the attacking officers until Kiyomori Taira and Sun
Wukong appear in the north with more reinforcements. Jump off the cliff to
surprise the demon army and Sun Wukong as they walk under the central bridge,
then crush Kiyomori Taira to seize victory.

Defeat Conditions: Joan of Arc is defeated.

Joan of Arc is determined to protect the Saika rebels and save Magoichi. Help
her help him by heading south and stopping Botryogen's advance, then crossing
the bridge to the south. Defeat Hooknose, Yellowbelly, and Tangleweb as you
loop around to the west, then cross the bridge and cut down Galena as you
proceed north. Magoichi Saika and his rebels will appear to reinforce you; head
north and help Joan of Arc in her battle with Bushmaster as they move into
position. Charge south to finish off Boomslang after they fire their barrage,
and intercept Coltan and Massicot on the other side of the bridge. The demon
army will receive reinforcements: Hognose, Lancehead, Suntiger, and Travertine
in the northwest, and Bismuth in the northeast. Loop around to the west and
north, defeating Stripeleg, Keelback, and Travertine along the way, then head
east and fight off the demon officers attacking your main camp. Once their
offensive has been crushed, head south, slice up Coachwhip, and move in on
Diamondback from the east. With or without support from your allies, he'll be
easy prey.

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Mt. Dingjun - Redux.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Dong Zhuo.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Terumoto Mori, Motonari Mori or Jia Xu is
defeated.

Dong Zhuo and Yuan Shao have formed a coalition against Jia Xu and Motonari
Mori. To shatter their alliance and even the odds, plow through Zhang Ji as you
head northeast. When you reach He Jin, don't attack him; approach the Messenger
to your west and get him to follow you into He Jin's camp. Jia Xu will talk to
He Jin and convince him to defect. After making a quick jaunt to the west to
dispatch Dong Min, escort the allied Messenger as he travels southwest along
the winding path. Break through Huche'er to help him reach his destination, and
Motonari Mori will talk Yoshihisa Amago into defecting. Wail on Sheetweaver
and Harvestman while Jia Xu speaks with Yuan Shao, then make your way southwest
and eliminate Cottonmouth and Suntiger to provoke Hammerjaw into attacking you.
Once he's out of the picture, backtrack to the north and pummel Gongsun Zan
while Jia Xu persuades Yuan Shao to defect. Dong Zhuo will become enraged and
receive reinforcements: Niu Fu, Hu Zhen, Xu Rong, and Fan Chou in the west; Guo
Si, Hua Xiong, Li Jue, and Li Su in the center; and Orbweaver and Morion in the
east. Defeat Niu Fu and Hu Zhen as they come for you, then follow the south
central path into Dong Zhuo's main camp and beat him into submission.

Defeat Conditions: Either Ma Chao, Joan of Arc or Cai Wenji is defeated.

Kiyomori Taira has been cornered atop a mountain. Take the fight to him by
wiping out Lu Kai and Fu Shiren as soon as the battle begins, then carving a
path through Ma Liang, Zhang Da, Huntsman, and Patchnose to reach Kiyomori's
garrison. Demon army reinforcements will arrive in the northwest when he
withdraws, and they'll head straight for Cai Wenji in the southwest. She won't
last long without your aid, so leave the garrison via the north exit, leap off
the eastern face of the mountain, and hurry over to stop Sun Quan, Guan Yu, and
and their numerous subordinates from causing the songstress too much pain. Once
they've been dealt with, Sun Wukong will appear in the east. He'll spring an
ambush as Ma Chao closes in on him; fight off the troops and Sun Wukong's
doubles, and Kiyomori will reappear in the central garrison. Strike him down to
bring the battle to an end.

Defeat Conditions: Jiang Wei is defeated.

Jiang Wei needs your help to escape from Mt. Xingshi unharmed. Assist him by
cutting down Fan Chou and Guo Si as you approach the closed gate in the north,
then introducing Li Ru to your blade when he drops in on you. The demon army
will advance on you, clearing a path for Jiang Wei to reach the escape point.
Charge through both the gate and Bushmaster, then loop around to the top of the
eastern plateau and secure the garrison that Li Su and Morion are guarding.
Topple Copperhead and venture west to drive Li Jue and Orbweaver out of the
other garrison. Zhong Hui will order the rest of the officers in the south to
attack you and your allies. Crush Zhang Ying as you advance south, and defeat
Zhang Ji and Sidewinder as they come for you. Next, turn east and follow the
path to the summit, stopping Liu Yao's charge when he leaves the garrison. Let
your allies deal with Dong Yue and Hu Feng when they arrive; if you're quick
enough, you'll be able to cut your way through Xu Rong and dispatch Zhong Hui
before the reinforcements in the south can reach him. Make haste!

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Xuchang - Redux.

Follow the path north and west to find Gan Ning, who will challenge you to
defeat the most enemies. Continue west, destroying every enemy in your path as
you make your way to Lancehead, Patchnose, Hooknose, and Sidewinder. Crush them
all and follow the southern path to the east, cutting down Cottonmouth and
Sidewinder as you go. Sun Wukong will appear in the south, prompting Gan Ning
and Masanori Fukushima to charge him. Follow Gan Ning down the eastern path or
Masanori down the western path as you choose, pummeling any enemy officers in
your path. Both roads lead to Sun Wukong; defeat him to prove to your allies
who's really the greatest on this battlefield.

l. Chaos at Tetorigawa                                                   [2I12]

Defeat Conditions: Either Benkei or Xu Huang is defeated.

When it comes to unique weapons, not many people command an arsenal to rival
Yueying's. Prove your superiority to it by heading east and taking care of
Sidewinder and the four juggernauts. When the southeast garrison opens, enter
it and destroy the control mechanism to disable the juggernauts. Exit to the
north, and Diamondback, Hammerjaw, and Galena will appear and begin marching
west. Follow them into the garrison and destroy them along with the control
mechanism for the ballistae. Dodomeki, Hognose, and Patchnose will appear in
the west; intercept them as they charge you and enter the garrison to the
northwest. Arbalests will fire on you, and there's no control mechanism to stop
them, so approach them with caution and dismantle them from the side or the
rear. Once you're done smashing them to pieces, Sun Wukong will appear with
Gyuki and Coachwhip. Repel them, and Yueying will appear on the bridge to the
north. She'll fly into a rage when she learns what happened to her siege
weapons, so expect her to put up a good fight.

m. Battle of Liaodong                                                    [2I13]

Victory Conditions: Scout out the area.
Defeat Conditions: Either Nene or Sun Jian is defeated.

Kiyomori Taira and his demon followers are after a warrior who has appeared
near a new building in Liaodong. Foil his recruitment efforts by heading east
and beating some information out of Keelback, then continuing northeast and
doing the same to Hooknose. Coachwhip will be your next target, and the demon
officers near the northern cliff will destroy the ladders that will allow you
to reach the castle when you defeat him. Thankfully, Nene can repair them;
escort her to the northern cliff and deal with Diamondback, Harvestman, and
Travertine so that her ninjas can do their job. After reaching the top of the
cliff, head south and clear Goldenrod from the garrison, then backtrack to the
north and cut your way through Copperhead, Boomslang, and Urutu to access the
castle. Climb the stairs and defeat Leaflitter, Sheetwaver, and Bloodleg to
open the doors to the western keep, in which you'll encounter Sophitia. Help
her fight off Hognose and Spinyback, and you'll be instructed to guide her to
the escape point in the southwest. Smash your way south through Ytterbite,
Bushmaster, and the pursuing Stripeleg, then change course when the escape
point moves to the southeast. The enemy will be reinforced by Keiji Maeda,
Masamune Date, and Mamushi in the southwest and Sidewinder and Lancehead in the
northeast, and all of them will converge on your position. Fight them all off,
but be warned that Keiji and Masamune will rally when their life is low.
Finally, Kiyomori Taira will appear in the southeast with Suntiger, Orbweaver,
and Cottonmouth and try to stop you from escaping. He, too, will rally when
weakened, but once you defeat him, you're home free.

Supposedly, there's a place where demons and humans coexist peacefully. See if
the rumors are true by entering the garrison to the southeast and defeating the
Orochi Soldier. Motochika Chosokabe will appear with several generic officers.
Approach them until you're given the message to meet with Motochika, who waits
in the southwest. Demon officers will appear in the east as you close in on his
his garrison, and he'll open the gates and charge while his allies flee to
safety. Pummel him until he withdraws, and Yoshimoto Imagawa will appear in the
northeast and cry for help. Clear Coachwhip and Copperhead from the canyon as
you advance, then ascend the two ramps to face Boomslang. Continue northward
and dispatch Hognose and Patchnose, then rendezvous with Yoshimoto and save him
from Hooknose. The third party forces will join your side, and demon army
reinforcements will appear in the southeast. If you hurry to the southwest and
jump off the cliff as they enter the central garrison, you'll be able to catch
them off-guard. Defeat Galena to end the battle.

o. Purge of Nanzhong                                                     [2I15]

Mission Givers: Zhang He, Wei Yan
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Either Meng Huo or Meng You is defeated.

The Nanman people need some demons expunged from their lands. Take the
initiative by heading northeast, defeating Goldenrod and Coachwhip, and
snapping Wishbone as you continue to the southeast. Stripeleg and Hognose
should be your next victims, followed by Harvestman and Patchnose to the east.
With the help of the newly freed Nanman warriors, proceed north and purge
Dodomeki, Redback, Hammerjaw, and Levyne from the area. There are tons of
archers here, so prepare for some acrobatic dodging and blocking.

With the northern passage sealed off, you and your allies will be free to focus
on the south. Backtrack to the west and fight off Orbweaver if he's giving Meng
You trouble, then head southeast and defeat Suntiger and Spinyback after making
your way through the temple. Beat down Ytterbite as you advance west, then
subdue Gyuki, Massicot, Travertine, and Morion to seal the southern passage.
With all other threats neutralized, make your way to the southeast corner and
send Galena packing.

The mystics want to prevent Da Ji's escape from Sekigahara, and with your help,
they might be able to succeed. For starters, head northwest and crush Keelback
and Travertine, then push past Achilles and the two generic officers in the
garrison. Exit through the north gate and turn east, cutting down Kai, Himiko,
Xu Huang, and any generic officers you meet, then continue pursuing Da Ji to
the southeast. She'll flee to the northeast and launch an ambush as you close
in, and Lu Bu will arrive near the middle of the battlefield to challenge
Nezha. Fight your way through the reinforcements, avoiding Lu Bu if you don't
feel capable of standing up to him, and make your way to the large garrison in
the northeast. Da Ji will make her stand there with support from Kaguya, Ding
Feng, Motonari Mori, and Hanbei Takenaka. The fight will be an intense one, but
once Da Ji and Hanbei have fallen, you will be triumphant.

The demon army is preparing for a major offensive, but there's a stranger in
their midst. You'll find out who he is and what his intentions are as soon as
the battle begins, and you'll need to help him protect the nearby Villager from
the attacks of Yellowbelly and Nosean. Once she's safe, cut your way south
through Morion, Bismuth, Sidewinder, and Mamushi, then dispatch Goldenrod and
follow the path northeast in search of the Villager's sister. You'll find her
after taking out Harvestman, Tangleweb, and Lancehead, and you'll have to
pulverize Cottonmouth to rescue her. Diamondback and Coachwhip will begin
marching on the Villager immediately afterward, and Dong Zhuo's army will
arrive in the west and try to claim the lands for themselves. Follow the
western path to reach the Villager quickly, then stay near her and beat back
the enemy officers as they approach. When the last of them is finished, so is
your work here.

Da Ji is hiding behind her human allies, but you're not ready to give up the
chase. Follow the path through the canyon and defeat the two officers there,
which will allow your allies to follow you. Break through Zhang Liao and the
two generic officers by the gate to open it, then cut down Ujinao Imamura, Niu
Jin, and Cao Xiu on the opposite side. Coalition reinforcements that include
Sima Zhao and Joan of Arc will appear in the west; help Sun Wukong stop their
advance, then plow through Pang De, Zang Ba, and Naotsune Endo to open the
checkpoint gates. As you pass through the checkpoint, two more waves of enemy
reinforcements will appear: Ma Chao and Ryu Hayabusa in the east, Zhang Liao
and Pang De in the southwest. Help Nezha repel Ryu and Ma Chao, then regroup
with Susano'o and help him pulverize Pang De and Zhang Liao. Both groups have
been dispatched, only Nagamasa Azai and Oichi will remain. Their attempts to
parley with you will do them no good - let your weapon speak for you.

Defeat Conditions: Da Ji is defeated.

Cao Pi is leading the Sima clan in battle against Da Ji. Help her by fighting
off Xu Zhu and Cao Hong when they charge you, then clearing Yu Jin and Cao Zhen
from the garrison to your east. Head southeast and defeat Yoshitsugu Otani and
Mitsunari Ishida to capture the other garrison while Nezha kills Diaochan and
beats Lu Bu down. Cut down Cao Yu as you leave the garrison, then hurry back to
Da Ji's side to protect her from Nezha. Once she's safe, return to the eastern
battlefront and help your allies fight off Cao Zhang, then press on for Sima
Shi and Sima Fu, who are protected by a pyrocannon.

Around this time, you'll be treated to a cutscene, and Susano'o will make his
appearance in the north with Lacerta, Grus, and Vulpecula. They'll make a
beeline for Da Ji, who won't be able to hold them off for long if they reach
her. Susano'o isn't easy to take down, but if your forces are thin in the west,
you'll need to get back there and hold him off. After he pulls back, head back
to the east once more, defeat Zhenji and Cao Xiu in the northern garrison, and

It's brother against brother in this battle, which can be completed quickly if
you're so inclined. Start by heading west and striking down Lei Tong as you
circle around the central rock formation, then advance northeast for Liu Feng.
Continue north along the path, avoiding Hanzo Hattori's boulder attack as you
make your way to Wu Lan, and ascend the slope. Hurry east to intercept the
Messenger that will approach the base, then continue south and cross the bridge
to find Hanzo. Strike him down to stop the boulders, then advance along the
path to the southwest and leap off the battlements to surprise Zhang Yi and Fa
Zheng. After dispatching them, head north and do battle with Tadakatsu Honda.
Defeating him will draw out Zhang Fei; if you can break his charge, you'll
seize victory.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Mitsuhide Akechi and Zhuge Liang.
Defeat Conditions: Either Hanbei Takenaka or Kanbei Kuroda is defeated.

Liu Bei's strategist and Nobunaga's vassal make their stand here. Head east,
breaking through Yoritaka Hachiya and his rifle squad as you proceed to the
garrison, and defeat Shigetomo Takayama amidst the flames. Loop around to the
west, cutting your way through Sun Qian, Mi Zhu, Sha Moke, and Fu Shiren while
the Oda army kills off the Peasants. Dian Wei will appear and begin attacking
them, during which time you should be dealing with No. After doing so, cross
the bridge and head east to confront Ittetsu Inaba and Nagachika Kanamori. Dian
Wei will attack you as well; pound on him until he retreats. Mitsuhide will
attack when the enemy reinforcements arrive; greet him with your blade as he
leaves the central garrison, then proceed east and wipe out Chen Shi, Zhou
Cang, and Wu Ban as Zhuge Liang advances. Double back and defeat Narimassa
Sassa and Shigemasa Nakagawa as you proceed west, then cut Zhuge Liang off and
cut him down.

It's time to take down the combined forces of the Takeda and the Uesugi. Start
by heading east for Kageie Kakizaki, then double back and repel Xiahou Dun and
Sadamitsu Usami when they menace Hideyoshi. Defend him from Masanobu Kosaka and
Nobufusa Baba as well, then head east to clear out Kansuke Yamamoto and Cao Pi.
Loop around to the north and west to reach Yukimura, who will probably need
help against Sima Yi, Aya, and the assembled generic officers. This will prompt
Kenshin and Shingen to charge you. Wipe them both out.

g. Battle of Honnoji                                                     [3T07]

Victory Conditions: Defeat Nobunaga Oda and Fu Xi.
Defeat Conditions: Ujiyasu Hojo is defeated.

Nobunaga Oda's forces still stand in opposition to Da Ji. To convert them to
your cause, head west and defeat Kitsugo Murata and Sadakatsu Murai as you loop
around to the north and east. Continue to follow the path as it turns west,
striking down Katsusuke Yashiro and Nobutada Oda as you go. Proceed through
the western gate, flushing Ujisato Gamo, Hidemasa Hori, and Hidekatsu Fukutomi
from the area, and Sun Jian will arrive in the southeast as reinforcements. His
riflemen will fire near the gunpowder stores, setting Honnoji ablaze and
killing Mitsuhide Akechi. The flames will slowly sap your team's life, so be
sure to swap out weakened team members and give them a chance to recover.

In the midst of the chaos, the Oda army will launch an ambush, and Fu Xi will
take the battlefield. Head to the northwest corner and intercept him, then beat
down the other officers who come for you. Once the coast is clear, descend the
stairs and face Koroku Hachisuka, then cut down Nobumori Sakuma as you proceed
east. Cut down No when she appears near the main hall, then carve a path
through Bokuzen Ujiie and put the Demon King in his place.

Follow the strategy for the original version of the battle until you defeat
Nobutada Oda. Go for Sadakatsu Murai next, then go through the secret passage
to reach the garden. You'll catch the enemies off-guard and have an easy time
scattering Hidekatsu Fukutomi, Hidemasa Hori, and Ujisato Gamo. Proceed to the
east and help Sun Jian capture Mitsuhide Akechi, then pass through the gate to
the north. Beat back Kazutoyo Yamauchi and Nagachika Kanamori when they ambush
you, then continue to the northeast and overcome No to reach Nobunaga Oda. Once
he and Bokuzen Ujiie are out of the picture, make your way west and mow down
Nobumori Sakuma and Koroku Hachisuka, then continue on to find Fu Xi and teach
him that mortals are not to be taken lightly.

Victory Conditions: Ensure Ma Chao reaches the escape point.
Defeat Conditions: Ma Chao is defeated.

Cao Cao is trying to attack your army from behind. Put a damper on his plans by
defeating Cao Xiu in the garrison to your south, then stopping Lu Qian's charge
to protect Ma Chao's rear. Head north to catch up to him, fight off Hao Zhao,
and follow him as he advances to the northwest. Ascend the eastern plateau and
take care of Cao Chun, then climb the western one and crush Cao Zhen to drive
away the archers. Drop in on Cao Zhi and Dong Zhao, then enter Jiangling Castle
to meet Cao Pi and Zhenji as they advance from the west. Xiahou Dun will arrive
from the east shortly thereafter; greet him with the same courtesy you did his
allies.

With the pincer attack thwarted, Ma Chao will continue advancing to the
northwest. Yu Jin will launch an ambush in the garrison; beat him to clear the
path and press on. Nuwa will appear by the escape point and block it with a
landslide, forcing you to confront Cao Cao when he appears after her defeat.
Cao Cao will send Guo Jia away, and his forces will converge on your allies. Ma
Chao will charge him; follow his lead, cutting down any officers who get in
your way, and subdue Cao Cao to put an end to the battle.

Three groups of enemy officers will attack your camp at the outset of this
battle: Equuleus and Monoceros in the northwest, Lupus and Phoenix in the
southwest, and Pavo and Lyra in the southeast. Fight off all six of them to
reform your front lines, then proceed to the south. Stomp Scorpius to clear the
guardpost and head west at the coast. Avoid the falling boulders as you
approach Sun Wukong, and exit the garrison to the west after defeating him.
Trounce Tucana and Vulpecula, then head north and cut down Mensa. Continue
northeast to meet Nezha, and crush both him and Crux. Susano'o will appear in
the east and launch an assault on Da Ji; hurry over to protect her and show
Susano'o the strength of the human spirit.

l. Battle of Chengdu                                                     [3T12]

Victory Conditions: Cao Cao, Liu Bei and Ieyasu Tokugawa reach the escape
point.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Cao Cao, Liu Bei or Ieyasu Tokugawa is defeated.

The Hydra is coming to Chengdu, and your allies need to beat a hasty retreat.
Help them out by heading southwest and knocking out Galena as soon as the
battle begins, which will prevent Ieyasu from being ambushed by archers. Next,
follow the path to the northeast and crush Travertine to save Fa Zheng, then
backtrack and loop around to the north and east to deal with Zhang Ji. Press on
and confront Urutu, then intercept Li Jue when he charges Cao Cao from behind.
Follow Cao Cao's path to the east and south, clear out Hu Zhen and Leaflitter,
and turn west to help Liu Bei repel the attacks of Fan Chou and Hooknose. Cao
Cao should arrive at the escape point shortly; head south to help him capture
Dong Zhuo and pummel Xu Rong and the various demon officers. There are a lot of
archers down there as well, so be careful. Disposing of the officers will allow
Liu Bei and his forces to reach the escape point, leaving you to assist Ieyasu
if he needs help advancing east. Once all three of your allies are in position,
Susano'o will appear to challenge you. Overcome him, and you're home free.

m. Battle of Hulao Gate                                                  [3T13]
Difficulty: ********
Recommended Team: Shuten Doji, Sima Zhao, Keiji Maeda
Mission Givers: Cao Pi, Sima Yi, Taigong Wang, Shuten Doji, Da Ji, Zhenji
Victory Conditions: Defeat Hydra.
Defeat Conditions: Either Cao Pi or Shuten Doji is defeated, or the Yashio'ori
is destroyed.

Two of the Hydra's heads are attacking Hulao Gate, so your first priority is to
stop them. Hop in the Yashio'ori and open fire on them, using burst fire to
weaken the heads and destroy any fireballs they spit at you. Use the beam only
when they turn purple and rear back. The heads will turn red when weakened,
which increases their defense and allows them to spit two fireballs at once.
For this reason, it's better to focus on taking the heads down one at a time.

Of course, defeating the Hydra heads is only the beginning. They'll spawn
Orochi clones in the southwest, both of which will need to be destroyed. Jump
off the top of the wall and strike down Sidewinder and Bismuth, then follow the
northern road. Take out Tangleweb and ascend the slope to find Bushmaster,
whose defeat will stop the archer attack. Descend the slope and head south,
turning east when the road forks. Follow it to reach Lancehead and cut him down
to stop the bombers, then jump into the garrison and say hello to Sheetweaver.
Follow Sima Yi to the northwest and thwart Cottonmouth's plan to launch an
archer ambush against Cao Pi, then approach Kiyomori Taira. A poison mist will
settle over the battlefield and rapidly sap your army's life; crush Kiyomori as
quickly as you can to open the garrison, then scatter Leaflitter to disperse
the mist. Beat back Coltan and Botryogen as they approach, then take either the
northern or southern path to the west and wait for Shuten Doji to open the
gate. Annihilate both incarnations of Orochi, and victory is yours.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Diamondback.
Defeat Conditions: Either Nobunaga Oda is defeated, or the Yashio'ori is
destroyed.

The demons are launching an assault on the Resistance's Yashio'ori production
site. Keep things running smoothly by heading east and slicing up Suntiger and
Spinyback, then heading south and crossing the bridge. Break Wishbone and
Stripeleg, then continue to the west and purge it of Bloodleg, Goldenrod, and
Copperhead. Sun Wukong will appear inside the castle, split into three, and use
his magic to close and lock the gates. You'll have to use the cannons in the
south to blast through the walls, so cut down Harvestman and Huntsman and head
west. Nezha will appear in the southwest and receive a power boost from Sun
Wukong, and Lu Bu will appear in the southeast to challenge him. Let them tear
into each other for now; climb the slope leading to the cannons and dispatch
Hammerjaw, then use the western cannon to blow a hole in both the castle wall
and the enemy ranks. Enter the castle, hurry over to the Yashio'ori, and stop
the first Sun Wukong clone and any officers around him from damaging it too
severely. Hurry north to Nobunaga's side and help him fight off the second Sun
Wukong clone, then defend Hanbei from the last one. The rest of the battle is
much less intense; return to the south side of the battlefield, head west to
confront Nezha, then go after Diamondback in the southeast to put an end to the
demon army's siege.

Lu Bu and Diaochan need a way to escape from Nezha. Provide them with one by
heading southwest and clearing the north garrison of Galena and Hognose, then
making a quick jaunt southeast and purging Orbweaver and Coltan from that
garrison. Next, make your way southwest and defeat Bloodleg, then press
southward to pummel Patchnose and destroy the ballista and arbalest. This will
secure a landing area for the allied fleet, which will allow you to focus on
reaching Diamondback. An Engineer will appear when the ships land and make his
way northwest to build a battering ram. Head north for Morion and Hooknose
before turning west, then plow through Goldenrod and Nosean to secure the
garrison. Head southeast and escort the Engineer past Harvestman, then return
to the western garrison and follow the battering ram to the south. Enter the
enemy's main camp through the breached gate, then cut down Levyne and
Diamondback and call it a day.

Clearing this battle will unlock the Battle of Tong Gate - Redux.

Follow his advice and head to the supply depot in the east, making a detour to
the north to wail on Zhang Mancheng. Wipe out He Yi and Sun Zhong before
entering the supply depot; once you find the box in which Gracia is hiding, all
of the officers in the south will charge you. Defeat Zhang Liang and his
companions to weaken the winds in the north, then head that way and proceed
south down the path adjacent to Zhang Bao to reach him. Defeating him will stop
the winds and allow you to reach the mountaintop, where Zhao Hong and Gao Sheng
lie in wait with Zhang Jiao. Strike them all down to secure Gracia's release.

Continue southwest and clean out the central garrisons, then head north and
wipe out Sima Wang to allow the Engineers to enter the battlefield. Hurry west
to intercept to Zhang He when he moves to engage them, then dispatch Kazumasu
Takigawa on your way south to deal with Wang Yuanji. After doing so, you can
either swing north and brawl with Keiji Maeda in the garrison or use the siege
ladder to enter the Resistance army's main camp. Da Ji will call her officers
back to defend her, but if you've already beaten them, you'll have nothing to
fear. Nezha and Susano'o will also appear and move toward Da Ji. Defeat Sima
Zhao to gain access to her, then make sure you beat her down before anyone else
does.

Peasants. Follow the easternmost path to the north, cutting down Ma Yuanyi as
you proceed, then save the first Peasant from Bo Cai. Head west and defeat Zhao
Hong to save the second Peasant, then venture south and rescue the last one
from Han Zhong. Escort the three Peasants back to the village, and Gao Sheng,
Zhang Yan, and Guan Hai will charge you from the south. Let them charge into
your blade, and let your allies handle Guan Hai, Deng Mao, and Liu Pi when they
arrive in the northwest. Charge south and launch a counterattack, mowing down
Cheng Yuanzhi and Pei Yuanshao in front of Zhang Mancheng's camp, then punish

pursuit. Pass through the gates when they open and follow the path to the
northwest to reach Wang Shuang. Cut him down, cross the bridge, climb the
mountain, and capture the garrison from Hua Yong. Exit to the north and go
across the bridge, and defeat Liu Da to capture the second garrison. Follow the
path as it loops to the north and east and seize the third garrison from Jiang
Gan, then head to the central eastern garrison and rendezvous with Okuni. Beat
back Dai Ling as he approaches, then protect the ladies from the officers who
assault them as they ascend the slope. Beware the attacks of the cavalry and
archers, who you may want to target before the officers. Defeating Xu Shu will
allow you to reach Zhong Hui, who you should have little trouble beating into
submission.

attacks of the juggernauts and archers as you do. Ma Ling will jump down from
the ledge above you and charge Fa Zheng; greet him warmly with your blade, then
head through the valley to reach the western garrison and defeat Yi Ji to put
an end to the juggernaut onslaught. Several reinforcement officers will arrive

Mission Givers: Guo Jia, Guo Huai, Xingcai
Victory Conditions: Find ??? (Ina).
Defeat Conditions: Guo Jia is defeated.

Ina is honing her fighting skills against the demons, but it seems she's gotten
in over her head. Help her out by heading south and wiping out Lancehead, then
press on for Suntiger to open the gates of the Stone Sentinel Maze. Fight off
Orbweaver, Coachwhip, and Mamushi to save Tadatomo Honda, then cut down
Boomslang and Keelback as you make your way through the maze. Proceed southeast
after leaving and seize the garrison from Hognose, Patchnose, and Hooknose to
rescue Hidetsuna Tsukushi. Ina will be revealed in the southeast, and Guo Huai
will comment on an icy wind blowing in from the north, which will give Guo Jia
a plan. Go east and stomp on Copperhead while Zhang Fei heads west to take care
of Bushmaster; once you've both done your duty, Guo Jia will launch a fire
attack that will do severe damage to the demon army. Finish off Yellowbelly and
Stripeleg as you advance south, then defeat Dodomeki and Gyuki when they appear
outside the southeast garrison. Clear the rest of the demon officers from the
area, then charge into the garrison and fend off Diamondback's attacks to save
Ina and end the battle.

Mission Givers: Yuan Shao, Zhurong, Ginchiyo Tachibana
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Yuan Shao, Zhurong or Ginchiyo Tachibana is
defeated.

Yuan Shao is ashamed of his decision to collude with demons and wants to alter
his past. Assist him in his endeavor by heading east to meet up with Huntsman,
who is part of a faction of demons that wants peaceful coexistence with humans.
Pummel the ones who disagree with him until they defect, then head for the
garrison in the south to meet Hammerjaw. Yuan Shao will turn on him, and you'll
have to fight all the demon officers at once. Kiyomori Taira will appear in the
west once you've taken them all out, and when the demon officers reppear around
you, he'll use his magic to strengthen them. Break through their siege by
heading north to break Bloodleg and tear apart Tangleweb, then mutilate Morion
and Ytterbite as they approach. Sidewinder and Harvestman will attack you from
the south, and the rest of the demon officers will follow them. Stand and fight
until all of them fall, and Yuan Shao will walk away from this battle with his
pride intact.

Mission Givers: Ryu Hayabusa, Jia Xu, Kunoichi
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Ryu Hayabusa is defeated.

Jia Xu is going on a covert mission with Ryu Hayabusa. Make sure it succeeds
by heading south and cutting down Pestilence, Pulao, and Fear when they appear.
Zhang Xian will defect when you rendezvous with him, so punish him and continue
west to beat some sense into Zenjubo Sugitani and Zhang Quan. You should also
bring an end to War when he attacks, then continue north to face Han Xian and
Lei Xu. Kappa and Gluttony will attack you as well, and Li Yue and Suketane
Nasu will defect around the time the demon army's main forces appear. Defeat
Storm to lower the drawbridge, then press north to trigger a cutscene in which
Momiji appears. She'll dispel the effects of the sorcery on some of your
allies, and Sun Wukong will retaliate by creating a phantom double to attack
you. All nearby allies will turn against you when it appears, so fight them off
and hurry to the castle's east entrance, where you can help your allies deal
with Brimstone, Flood, and Poison. Defeat Sun Wukong's other double when it
comes for you, then defeat Hailstones to draw out the real Sun Wukong. Beat him
down to size both the castle and victory.

n. Siege of Shouchun                                                     [3I14]

Victory Conditions: Defeat Kotaro Fuma.
Defeat Conditions: Ujiyasu Hojo is defeated.

Kotaro Fuma is rebelling against his liege lord. End his insurrection by going
south and dispatching Masayasu Miyoshi, then heading south and decimating
Mototsuna Kutsuki and Yoshinobu Satake when they ambush you. Hang around to
stop the advance of Mitsuuji Ujiie and Hidetsuna Sakenobe, then cross the
bridge to the south and venture west into Shouchun Castle. Kotaro will set it
on fire and vanish, leaving you to fight off Minbu Satomi, Mitsuyasu Shimura,
and Mitsunao Tateoka. Kotaro's army will launch a second ambush in the east;
leave the castle through the east gate and cut down Sadatsugu Tsutsui and
Kazutada Nakamura to take some pressure off your allies, and Kotaro will appear
in the southeast corner. Advance on him, striking down Kazuhide Nakamura and
Tanomo Noisshiki along your way, then wail on him until he remembers where his
loyalties lie.

Most of the enemy peons in this battle are ninjas, so expect to be poked a lot
if your team members aren't fast attackers.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Liu Xun and Hidetada Tokugawa.
Defeat Conditions: Either Nobutada Oda or Fu Xi is defeated.

Fu Xi is concerned about an individual who just doesn't see the bigger picture.
Help him spread some enlightenment by leaping into the garrison to the west of
your starting position and driving off Liu Gui, Lu Yi, Leng Bao, and Yang Huai
to secure it. Mystic officers will appear in the northwest and northeast and
charge Nobutada Oda; head north to meet Peril and Glory and stop them from
reaching him. Shennong will appear in the northwest and continually heal his
allies as you fight them, so make him your next target. He'll fight you
alongside Ocean and Thunder and restore his life twice, so keep the pressure on
him until he's ready to call it quits. Once Shennong's out of the picture,
hurry to the east and send Peril and Glory packing a second time, then charge
south to wipe out Hidetada Oda and all of the officers around him. Liu Xun and
his subordinates should now be gathered in the western garrison, so charge in
there and exterminate them with extreme prejudice.

Defeat Conditions: Any one of Lianshi, Joan of Arc, Rachel or Peasant is
defeated.

Lianshi fights to protect her loved ones - a cause that Rachel and Joan of Arc
can support. To show your support as well, hurry west to rendezvous with your
allies and help them save the Peasant from Harvestman. The demon army will then
charge you; stay in the garrison and annihilate any unwelcome guests as they
arrive. Another wave of officers that includes Gyuki and Dodomeki will appear
after the first one is finished; stay put and repel them, too. Finally,
Kiyomori Taira will appear in the southeast. Rachel will charge him; cut down
any officers in your path as you follow her, then do the same to their leader.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Sun Wukong.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Centaurus, Xiahou Dun, Yoshitsune Minamoto or
Musashi Miyamoto is defeated.

The demons have stolen the materials for the Yashio'ori, and your allies need
your help to recover them. They'll be under heavy attack from the moment the
battle begins, so hurry north and defeat Hognose to save Cao Chun, then work
your way to the east and crush Galena to save Tadamasa Honda. Follow the
southern path and take care of Redback on your way to rescue Ujinori Hojo,
which you can accomplish by beating down Yellowbelly. You may also have to deal
with Leaflitter, after which you should hurry east and pummel either Patchnose
or Keelback to open the southeastern garrison's gates. Once inside, defeat
Diamondback and any nearby demon officers to rescue Centaurus, then start
making your way north to stop Sun Wukong from destroying the materials. Take
down Huntsman, Goldenrod, and Nosean on your way to the southern bridge, then
cross it and clear out Hooknose and the Sun Wukong clone. Cross the next
bridge, cut through Coltan, and annihilate Kornerupine, Suntiger, and a second
Sun Wukong clone to open the gates. Lu Bu and Diaochan will appear in the west
and head toward you as you're fighting your way in, at which point Sun Wukong
will summon Nezha to help him. Hurry over and dispatch him to prevent him from
destroying the materials, then chase down Nezha and make sure he doesn't walk
away from his fight with Lu Bu in one piece.

E. Story Mode - Chapter 4                                                [SMC4]

consequences of its destruction.

a. The Slaying of the Hydra                                              [4T01]
Difficulty: *********
Recommended Team: Sima Zhao, Ma Chao, Hanbei Takenaka
Mission Givers: Sima Zhao, Ma Chao, Hanbei Takenaka, Taigong Wang, Shuten Doji
Victory Conditions: Defeat Hydra.
Defeat Conditions: Either Sima Zhao is defeated, or all siege weapons are
destroyed.

If you completed all of the story battles in Chapters 1, 2, and 3, you'll have
four Yashio'ori to utilize in this battle. They'll make it much easier to stand
against the Hydra...and with eight heads to take down, you'll need to use every
advantage you can get.

Just as you did in the prologue battle, proceed north and plow through Keelback
to break through the 1st Guardpost. Hop off the cliff to your left and avoid
the Hydra's fire breath as you advance along the path, cutting down Copperhead
as you go. Beat up Bushmaster to break through the 2nd Guardpost, and introduce
Gyuki to your blade when the gates open. Let your allies deal with the enemy
officers while you blast away at the Hydra, using burst fire to sap its life
and shoot down its fireballs and the beam when it rears back in pain. Only one
head will attack you at a time, so focus your shots on the one that's closest.
The last four heads will turn red and stay red for the rest of the battle, so
be ready to shoot down twice as many fireballs when they do. The last head will
turn blue and spit huge fireballs at you, but these are actually easier to deal
with than the double fireballs.

If the northern Yashio'ori is destroyed, there are others in the east,
southeast, and west. Kiyomori Taira will appear when you set foot on the east
side of the battlefield, but he's nothing you and your allies can't handle.
Keep your eyes on the prize, and keep the pressure on the Hydra with the
Yashio'ori until all of its heads lie still.

b. Into the Fire                                                         [4T02]

Mission Givers: Sima Zhao, Hanbei Takenaka, Ma Chao, Taigong Wang, Da Ji
Victory Conditions: Defeat all incarnations of Orochi.
Defeat Conditions: Sima Zhao is defeated.

Dive into the abyss and prepare to face the humanoid embodiments of the Hydra's
heads! Each of the Orochi clones here has a different power that it can use to
strengthen itself and its allies, so pay close attention to the messages and be
ready to adjust your tactics on the fly. When the battle begins, take the high
road to the southeast and eliminate Massicot, then press on and obliterate the
Orochi in the south. Charge through the open gate and annihilate the second
Orochi, then wipe out Stripeleg as you approach the altar from the south. Loop
around to the north and west and eradicate the three Orochis that are attacking
your allies. Next, make your way east and defeat the officers that the central
eastern Orochi resurrects. Press on and pulverize the Orochi in the northeast,
then follow the west fork in the path and devastate the Orochi who is using the
blade-tempering spell. The last Orochi will lead his resurrected officers in an
assault on the altar; charge west and decimate them to break the Hydra's power.

Clearing this battle will earn you the NORMAL ending.

c. Orochi's End                                                          [4T03]

that battle to seize victory.

d. Susano'o's Last Stand                                                 [4T04]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Sima Zhao, Ma Chao, Hanbei Takenaka
Mission Givers: Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Nobunaga Oda, Ieyasu Tokugawa, Xiahou Dun,
Zhuge Liang, Hanzo Hattori, Tadakatsu Honda
Victory Conditions: Defeat Susano'o.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Nobunaga Oda or Ieyasu Tokugawa
is defeated.

Destroying the Orochi clones has given rise to Orochi X, but Susano'o doesn't
think you're worthy to face him. Prove him wrong by heading north into the
Stone Labyrinth and navigating it to reach Lupus. Defeat him to deactivate it
and exit to the east to find Equuleus. Wipe him out to extinguish the wall of
fire, then proceed south and pulverize Pavo to open the guardpost gates. Double
back to the northeast and help Cao Cao deal with Monoceros, which will open the
eastern camp gates. Let Liu Bei and Nobunaga deal with the attackers in the
west; at this point, you'll be free to press northward and carve a path through
Crux and Draco to reach Susano'o. Lacerta and Tucana will appear to assist him,
but if your conviction is strong, they won't stand a chance against you.

e. The Demise of Orochi X                                                [4T05]

Victory Conditions: Defeat Orochi X.
Defeat Conditions: Kaguya is defeated.

At long last, you've reached Koshi Castle, where Orochi X lies in wait for your
final confrontation! When the battle begins, head up the stairs in front of you
and sweep around to the south for Hooknose. You'll pass the central gate, which
is magically sealed shut; you'll need to destroy two orbs to open it. To find
them, head north and pulverize Patchnose when he opens the gate. Slay Suntiger
and Hognose as you advance north and west, then press on for Goldenrod and the
first sacred orb. Press on to the south, crushing Coachwhip and the perpetually
annoying Diamondback at the top of the stairs, and march to the southwest. Wipe
out Botryogen along your way, then smash Ytterbite and the second sacred orb to
allow your allies to enter the castle. Kiyomori Taira will appear and confront
them, and Susano'o will arrive to assist them. Double back to the northeast,
cutting down Levyne and Mamushi as you meet them, and lay Kiyomori to rest
before he can finish his incantation. When the castle's main gate opens, follow
the spiral path to Orochi X's sanctum, capturing bases and eradicating Dodomeki
and Gyuki as you advance. The fight with Orochi X himself is anticlimactic, and
can easily be won with a well-executed Triple Team Attack.

Clearing this battle will earn you the GOOD ending.

f. Prelude to Apocalypse                                                 [4T06]

Mission Givers: Fu Xi, Nuwa, Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Nobunaga Oda, Ieyasu Tokugawa,
Xiahou Dun, Zhuge Liang, Hanzo Hattori, Tadakatsu Honda
Victory Conditions: Defeat Susano'o and Nezha.
Defeat Conditions: Either Fu Xi or Nuwa is defeated.

This battle is similar to Susano'o's Last Stand, but with a few important
differences. The most obvious is that you have the assistance of Fu Xi and
Nuwa, both of whom must be kept alive. Assist them by heading east from your
starting position to face Lacerta. The gate will close behind you, mystic
officers will appear all over the battlefield, and Nezha will start attacking
Fu Xi in the southwest. Continue to the northeast and cut down Lyra, then loop
around to the west for Monoceros and Equuleus to extinguish the wall of fire.
Mow down Crux as you rush northeast to Nuwa's side and help her vanquish
Susano'o. All of the gates around the battlefield will open, which will allow
you to reach Nezha with ease by heading south and west. Pummel Pavo and
Scorpius along the way, then give Nezha a demonstration of your might.

g. World's End                                                           [4T07]

Recommended Team: Sima Zhao, Ma Chao, Hanbei Takenaka
Mission Givers: Kaguya, Sima Zhao, Ma Chao, Hanbei Takenaka, Kai, Lu Xun,
Motochika Chosokabe, Yueying, Ina
Victory Conditions: Defeat Orochi X.
Defeat Conditions: Kaguya is defeated.

This battle is similar to The Demise of Orochi X, but with a few challenging
twists. Climb the stairs and clobber Hooknose, but be sure to destroy the orbs
in the alcoves to the north and south of the central gate. The demon army will
fire on your allies with a ballista when they enter the castle, and Patchnose
and Hognose will launch an attack from the rear. Dispatch them both, then enter
the castle through the northern gate and mutilate Mamushi, Lancehead, and
Diamondback as you head west. Destroy the sacred orb and ascend the stairs to
the south, cutting down Kiyomori Taira as you advance on Coachwhip. Destroy him
and the three ballistae he commands, then jump down and help your allies finish
off Kornerupine.

Soon, Kiyomori will reappear at the altar in the west. For the rest of the
battle, he'll revive himself shortly after being slain, and he'll use his magic
to strengthen Orochi X. For now, let Motochika Chosokabe and Kai handle him;
your priority is to find the last two sacred orbs. Defeat the Defense Captain
in the south and work your way along the path to the southwest, capturing bases
and wiping out Wishbone as you go. Demolish Ytterbite and the second sacred
orb, then proceed west and north along the path, hugging the wall to avoid the
fiery breath of the Hydra. Help your allies exorcise Kiyomori and continue
marching northeast, where you'll find Goldenrod guarding the third sacred orb.
Smash them both, and the castle's main gate will open. Rush over to it and
follow the spiral path to Orochi X's sanctum, decimating Dodomeki and Gyuki and
capturing the bases you pass. It'll be a race against the clock to defeat
Orochi X before the enemy troops overwhelm your allies, but if you've managed
to make it this far, you have the skills you need to succeed.

Clearing this battle will earn you the TRUE ending. Enjoy it - you've certainly
earned it!

Victory Conditions: Defeat Susano'o.
Defeat Conditions: Either Lu Xun or Cao Pi is defeated.

Lu Xun is testing his strategies against the warriors of the Mystic Realm. To
ensure that he succeeds, head east and break Equuleus's charge, then backtrack
to the west and climb the plateau. Save Lu Xun from Monoceros and Lupus in the
garrison, then cross the bridge in the west and work your way north, striking
down Phoenix, Vulpecula, Tucana, and Grus along the way. Enter Hefei Castle and
drive out Draco, Lacerta, and Crux to reclaim it, then proceed east. Clear Pavo
from the garrison, and the mystic army will launch an all-out attack. Eliminate
Lyra and any Lieutenants or officers who stand in your way, then show Susano'o
the superiority of your strategies.

b. Battle of Komaki-Nagakute                                             [4I02]

Mission Givers: Hanzo Hattori, Zhuge Liang, Pang Tong, Huang Zhong
Victory Conditions: Defeat Sun Wukong.
Defeat Conditions: Either Zhuge Liang or Pang Tong is defeated.

Pang Tong is pitting his intellect against the might of the demon army. Help
him out by heading northeast and slicing up Sidewinder on your way to his side,
where you'll have to fight off Leaflitter and Morion to protect him. Stop
Ytterbite's southern advance, then head west and beat back Galena as you escort
the Engineers into position. Protect them from Cottonmouth and Mamushi as they
set up the bridges in the center of the battlefield, which the demon officers
will use to attack you. Hold them off until Pang Tong can launch his fire
attack, which will severely weaken the enemy forces and cause their morale to
plummet. Seize the opportunity to charge north and assault their main camp,
silencing Keelback and any other officers who stand between you and Sun Wukong.
Finish him off, and victory is yours.

c. Siege of Luoyang                                                      [4I03]

Victory Conditions: Defeat Zhong Hui.
Defeat Conditions: Either Deng Ai or Mitsuhide Akechi is defeated.

Zhong Hui needs a lesson in altruism. Make it a memorable one by heading north
and west through the hallway, then crushing Chen Tai and utilizing the gate
control device. Proceed southwest, beating down Hua Yong and Wang Jing to stop
the ballistae, then turn them against the enemy officers in the courtyard.
After wiping them all out, make your way to the northwest for Xu Zhi and
reenter the castle through the western gates. Thwart Zhang Ming's ambush and
follow the hallway north and east to the goal point, mowing down Zhu Fang along
the way. Hu Lie will defect and open the gates once you and your allies have
him encircled, leaving you free to punish Zhong Hui's pomposity at your
leisure.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Wang Yi and Kiyomori Taira.
Defeat Conditions: Either Ma Chao or Sima Yi is defeated.

Wang Yi is being controlled by Kiyomori Taira's sorcery. Help her break free by
scattering Goldenrod as soon as the battle begins, then advancing east to deal
with Wishbone and her. After she flees, head north for Bismuth and Morion or
south for Ytterbite and Coltan, scattering the reinforcements as they arrive.
Purge Lancehead from the center of the battlefield as you make your way to the
second group of enemies, then cut down any officers who stand between you and
Kiyomori Taira when he appears in the east. Wang Yi will appear in the
northeast after Kiyomori retreats; she'll initially be allied with you, but
will turn on you when she sees Ma Chao. Knock her around until she realizes
that joining forces with you is a much more sensible course of action.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Zhuge Liang, Zhang Jiao and Seimei Abe.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Kanetsugu Naoe, Xu Shu or Zhuge Dan is defeated.

Zhuge Liang has a new strategy he wants to test. He'll put it into action as
you cross the river near your starting position, activating juggernauts to
support his troops. Zhuge Dan, however, will counter with a barrage of fire
arrows, buying you time to approach Zuo Ci in the southeast. If given the
chance, he'll create four clones of himself to battle you, so you'll either
have to beat him down hastily or find the real Zuo Ci to overcome his sorcery.
After dealing with him, follow the path to the southwest to the top of the
plateau to encounter Ethereal Emperor and Seimei Abe. Slice them up to open the
garrison gates, strike down Serene Sky, and follow Xu Shu's suggestion of
advancing along the eastern path. After getting past Katsuie Shibata in the
garrison, stop and wait for the reconnaissance unit to discover the ambush
troops, then eliminate Sha Moke, Zhou Cang, and Fa Zheng to boost your army's
morale. Celestial Cosmos, Wellborn Warrior, and Regal Robe will appear to
block your path; hack through them, as well. Zhuge Liang and Zhang Jiao will
fight you with help from Huang Zhong and Wei Yan, but if you have a little
drive and a lot of fighting spirit, you'll be the last one standing.

Defeat Conditions: Da Ji is defeated.

Jiang Wei has become wise to the ploy of the Serpent King's former minions.
Advance south with your allies to reward his diligence and that of his two
subordinates with a severe beating, then turn east and chase down Liu Shan,
Ma Zhong, and Xi Zheng before they can request help from Hanbei Takenaka.
Hanbei will send Hidehisa Sengoku north to investigate, and Nagamasa Azai will
appear in the southeast along with Kazumasa Isono and Tsunachika Kaiho. Ignore
Hanbei's scout for the time being and loop around to the east, south, and west
to catch the Nagamasa and his allies from behind. You should be very close to
the enemy's main camp after defeating them, and you should waste no time
cutting through Koroku Hachisuka to reach Hanbei. He'll try to retreat when he
sees you, so run him down and run him through before he can escape.

Oda clan is planning to attack Shu and the Tokugawa. To thwart their plans, go
west and cut down Nagahide Niwa, then loop around to the west, north, and east,
dispatching Nagahide Niwa, Sadakatsu Murai, and Hidemasa Hori to clear a path
for your allies. While Guan Ping finishes off Kazumasu Takigawa, continue to
the northwest and eliminate Nobumori Sakuma and Masahisa Sakai to trigger an
ambush by Ujisato Gamo and Tadaoki Hosokawa. Defeating 400 troops will open the
gates, at which point you can rush to Liu Bei's side and help him fight off No,
Mitsuhide Akechi, and the generic officers who will be attacking him. Attack
Nobunaga from either the south or the west, but be mindful of Katsuie Shibata
and Oichi, who will be nearby to support him. Bring Nobunaga to his knees, and
victory is yours.

Mission Givers: Nobunaga Oda, Ranmaru Mori, No, Oichi, Katsuie Shibata,
Mitsuhide Akechi
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Nobunaga Oda is defeated.

The misunderstanding sparked by the fake Jiang Wei has been resolved, but the
Oda must now deal with the incoming forces of Wei. Beware the pyrocannons as
you head north for Li Dian, then east for Yu Jin and south for Xiahou Wei to
wipe out Wei's front line. Defeating Zhenji and Guo Jia is your next objective;
capture Dong Zhao's garrison as you chase after them, then make a quick detour
to deal with Jiang Ji and Cao Zhang on and scatter all of the officers in the
southeast garrison. An assault unit led by Mitsunari Ishida will appear in the
northwest to attack Nobunaga Oda, followed shortly thereafter by Cao Pi and
some Wei reinforcements in the west. Rush over to your main camp to help
Nobunaga repel the attackers, after which Da Ji and a fake Nobunaga Oda will
appear in the garrison to the south. Prove that their deception is no match for
your might.

Defeat Conditions: Nobunaga Oda is defeated.

Your starting position is slightly different, but your strategy will be the
same as it was in the original version of the battle. The fake Nobunaga Oda
will be revealed as one of Kyubi's tails, and you'll receive an orb for
defeating him.

G. Story Mode - Chapter 6                                                [SMC6]
This chapter focuses on the exploits of the heroes trapped in the Mirror Realm
and their compatriots' efforts to free them and vanquish Tamamo.

1. The Search for Da Ji                                                  [6T01]

Mission Givers: Sima Shi, Masamune Date, Gracia, Sakon Shima, Ujiyasu Hojo,
Wang Yuanji, Shingen Takeda, Aya, Gan Ning, Kanetsugu Naoe
Victory Conditions: Defeat Da Ji.
Defeat Conditions: Either Sima Shi or Masamune Date is defeated.

Gracia and her fellow Coalition members hope that Da Ji will know where the
vanishing heroes have gone. Begin the search for answers by breaking through
Urutu's garrison and heading east, then skewering Yellowbelly to open the gates
to the central square. A figure resembling Da Ji will disappear and reappear in
the southeast garrison, and Sima Shi will suggest setting a trap. Maul Mamushi
to capture the eastern garrison and cut off the flow of ambush troops, then
head south to trigger an ambush by Gyuki and Massicot. Crush them both, and Gan
Ning will launch an ambush of his own and raise your army's morale. While your
allies lure the demon officers to the central square, you should traverse the
southern path and take out Travertine and Hooknose on your way to Ueda Castle.
Kiyomori Taira, Bismuth, and Morion will appear to stop your advance; fight
your way inside and prepare to face Himiko, Harvestman, and Leaflitter. You may
also find yourself facing Dodomeki and the officers from the central square if
they managed to defeat your allies, so be ready for an intense brawl if you
take too long to deal with Himiko and her subordinates. Once you're inside the
main keep, Da Ji will engage you with help from Bushmaster, Redback, and
Ytterbite. Pummel her until she's ready to talk.

2. A Simple Misunderstanding                                             [6T02]

Mission Givers: Ujiyasu Hojo, Wang Yuanji, Sakon Shima, Shingen Takeda, Aya,
Kanetsugu Naoe
Victory Conditions: Scout out the area.
Defeat Conditions: Either Ujiyasu Hojo or Wang Yuanji is defeated.

Sima Zhao, Lu Xun, and Ginchiyo Takeda are preparing for battle with their
displaced allies. Advance toward the garrison in the northwest to draw out Lu
Xun, who will attack you along with Yu Fan, Xu Sheng, and Song Qian. Capture
all four of them, then double back to stop Shigeie Uchida, Tsurasada Totoki,
and Korenobu Yufu from hitting you while your back's turned. Accompany Ujiyasu
Hojo as he advances east, overcoming Hu Lie and Liu Zan when they attempt to
ambush you, and be ready to repel Kotaro Fuma, Masayasu Miyoshi, and Masakatsu
Miyoshi when they attack you from the north. They'll bring a bevy of archers
and ninjas with them, so be prepared to meet them with some combination of
timely blocking, acrobatic dodging, and overwhelming force. Once you've fought
your way into the garrison in the east, you need only knock some sense into the
remaining officers to claim victory.

3. Clash at Shizugatake                                                  [6T03]

Mission Givers: Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Nene, Daqiao, Xiaoqiao, Muneshige Tachibana
Victory Conditions: Find Sun Ce.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Nene, Daqiao or Xiaoqiao is
defeated.

Hideyoshi is unaware of the powers of the Divine Mirror, but what he doesn't
know can still hurt him. Help him start the search for his allies by entering
the garrison to the north, which will trigger an ambush by Yoshiaki Kato,
Yukinaga Konishi, and Yasuharu Wakisaka and prompt Yoshitsugu Otani and Hideie
Ukita to defect. Punish them all and follow Xiaoqiao to the northeast, where
she will search for Zhou Yu. Zhuge Jin will launch a fire attack and call in
help from Zhu Ran, Zhuge Ke, Lu Su, and Lu Kang as he defects. Han Dang and
Cheng Pu will appear to reinforce you, but they will defect as well. Tear
through the turncoats to extinguish the fires and break free of the garrison,
then cut down Harunaga Ono as you proceed north. Daqiao will be elated to see
Sun Ce and rush into the square when the gates open, triggering a cutscene in
which Shennong and Gan Ning appear. The images of Sun Ce, Mitsunari Ishida,
Kiyomasa Kato, and Masanori Fukushima will become hostile afterward, and
they'll be reinforced by Taishi Ci, Lu Meng, and Ling Tong in the west and
Katsumoto Katagiri and Hidehisa Sengoku in the south. Give them a well-deserved
beating, but beware the attacks of the archers and riflemen as you do.

4. Clash at Hefei                                                        [6T04]

Momiji, Kai
Victory Conditions: Defeat Shingen Takeda and Kanetsugu Naoe.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Sun Jian, Kenshin Uesugi or Yukimura Sanada is
defeated.

Yukimura is under attack by his liege lord...or perhaps his mirror image? The
only way he'll know is by meeting him on the battlefield. As soon as the battle
begins, head south and hack your way through Nobutomo Akiyama and pass through
the checkpoint. Break through the ambush by Yoshikiyo Murakami and Shigeie
Shibata and press on to rendezvous with Sun Jian, who will need a hand to fight
off Kagemochi Amakasu, Masatane Hara, and Masakage Yamagata. Once he's safe,
he'll head toward Xiaoshi Bridge in the east while Kenshin Uesugi creates a
diversion in the south. Head into the nearby garrison and wipe out Masakiyo
Morozumi to take some of the pressure off Kenshin, then regroup with Sun Jian
and clear Masashige Jojo and Nobufusa Baba from his path. Continue north and
push past Nagahide Yasuda to allow the Wu army to jump over the broken bridge,
then cut across the river to the east of it, climb the slope, and chase down
the Messenger before he can report the assault. Once it succeeds, join your
allies in the center and mop up all the enemy officers there, then charge into
the enemy main camp in the northeast. The real Shingen, Kanetsugu, and Aya will
show up to join the fight against their mirror images, but with no way of
telling who's real and who's an impostor, you'll just have to pummel everyone.
Do the same to Gan Ning and Ling Tong when they show up, and the day will be
yours.

5. Clash at Yamazaki                                                     [6T05]

Mission Givers: Sun Jian, Sun Quan, Kai, Mitsuhide Akechi, Magoichi Saika,
Gracia
Victory Conditions: Defeat Sun Shangxiang.
Defeat Conditions: Either Mitsuhide Akechi or Magoichi Saika is defeated.

Sun Shangxiang and the warriors of Wu are attacking the heroes who are trying
to escape the Mirror Realm. Stand up to them - rescue Magoichi from Zhu Zhi
first, then swim over to the island in the bay and rescue Mitsuhide from Dong
Xi. Swim back to the mainland and smash Song Qian to open the checkpoint, then
avoid the boulders while doubling back to the west. Veer north and follow the
winding path, dispatching Zhou Fang and Sun Xiu to keep it clear for your
allies, and follow the southeast branch of the path. Help Nobunaga defeat Su
Fei, then cut down Lu Su on your way north to No and scatter Sun Shao to save
her. Loop around to the north, east, and south and crush Cheng Pu to save
Ranmaru, and you'll be ready to begin the counterattack. Hack your way through
Han Dang as you head east, then decide whether you want to break through Zhou
Tai's garrison in the north or Lianshi's garrison in the south. Once you pass
through one of the garrisons, the officers in the other will charge you. Stop
their advance, then go after Sun Shangxiang to bring the battle to an end.

6. Escape from the Mirror Realm                                          [6T06]

Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Either Kaguya or Lu Meng is defeated.

The heroes are nearing the distortion in the Mirror Realm, but Tamamo isn't
going to let them reach it without a fight. Shigeie Uchida and Korenobu Yufu
will be right next to you as the battle begins; squash them both and intercept
Ginchiyo Tachibana and Tsurasada Totoki when they leap off the building in the
north to attack you, then exterminate Xu Sheng to bring an end to the enemy
assault. Lu Meng will suggest splitting up your forces; veer south for Quan
Zong to expedite Lu Meng's advance, then follow Ling Tong to the east and smash
through Zhuge Ke's garrison. Turn south and take down Chen Wu and Lu Ju on your
way to Goemon Ishikawa, who you'll need to defeat as quickly as possible in
order to repel the assault units that appear in the north and east. After
dealing with him, rush over to your main camp and help your allies fend off the
attacking officers, then follow the northernmost path to reach the garrison on
the hill in the northeast. Yoshihiro Shimazu, Toshihisa Shimazu, and Toyohisa
Shimazu will attack you when you enter it; pulverize them to draw out Zhou Yu
and Huang Gai, who will attack Lu Meng with support from some generic officers.
Fight your way through them, and Lu Bu will appear in the southeast with Zhang
Liao and Diaochan. Eradicate this final threat to make good your escape from
this nightmarish realm.

7. The Imprisonment of Tamamo                                            [6T07]

Recommended Team: Kanetsugu Naoe, Taishi Ci, Yoshihiro Shimazu
Mission Givers: Kanetsugu Naoe, Taishi Ci, Yoshihiro Shimazu, Kaguya, Fu Xi,
Nuwa, Shennong
Victory Conditions: Defeat Tamamo.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Fu Xi, Nuwa or Shennong is defeated.

It's time to return Tamamo to the Killing Stone! Break Bloodleg and Ytterbite
when they attack you, then cut down Mamushi, Galena, and Hooknose to open the
gates of the southern garrison. Lu Bu, Da Ji, and Yellowbelly await you inside;
greet them with your weapons and carve up Kamioni as you head northwest. Tamamo
will resurrect her fallen allies, but Seimei Abe will conjure four shikigami to
keep them occupied while he searches for a Dragon Portal. Da Ji will order the
images of Ginchiyo Tachibana, Keiji Maeda, and Sun Quan to attack you as you
cross the bridge, but Seimei Abe will conjure more shikigami in the north to
take some of the pressure off of you. Meet your foes as they come for you and
carve your way through them as you proceed northwest. Once you beat back Da Ji
and reach the Dragon Portal, Seimei Abe will cast a spell to prevent Tamamo's
army from resurrecting.

At this point, you're almost ready to face Tamamo...but she's still got a trick
or two up her sleeve. She'll summon four images of Lu Bu as you approach her,
and Da Ji will start a fire on the plateau atop which the northwestern garrison
sits. Defeat any demon officers who menace your allies as you move to engage
the Lu Bu images, who are best handled with a True Triple Attack. Defeating
them will extinguish the flames and open the garrison gates. Tamamo is a very
capable fighter and will have Da Ji to assist her, but she's nothing you can't
handle if you've made it this far.

Clearing this battle will earn you an ending movie and unlock The Search for
the Mirror.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Tamamo.
Defeat Conditions: Shingen Takeda is defeated.

The heroes have gone back in time to find the Divine Mirror, which is the only
thing that can strengthen the seal on Tamamo's prison. You can help them in
their search by heading east and capturing the garrison that Sidewinder guards,
then impaling Lancehead on your way to the central square. Next, clear Mamushi
from the eastern garrison and head towards the garrison in the south, smashing
Gyuki and Massicot when you arrive. The demon army's morale will plummet when
your allies in the north catch the enemy officers off-guard, and you can stave
off boredom by heading north and helping to rout them. Kiyomori Taira will
appear and charge you; meet him and beat him, and Da Ji will appear outside the
main keep with Himiko, Harvestman, and Leaflitter. Scatter them all to gain
access to the main keep, in which Tamamo and three generic officers will
confront you. Pound them into submission to claim both the Divine Mirror and
victory.

9. Defense of Tetorigawa                                                 [6T09]

Mission Givers: Cao Cao, Oichi, Dian Wei, Wang Yi, Cai Wenji
Victory Conditions: Defeat Ma Chao.
Defeat Conditions: Either Cao Cao or Oichi is defeated.

The heroes need to find Tamamo to learn when the mirror broke, but they need to
stop the fight between the Shu-Tokugawa and Wei-Oda Coalitions first. Start by
heading west and hacking through Ahui Nan and Jinhuan Sanjie, then continuing
on to save Li Dian from Cheng Yi and Yang Qiu. Rescue Yu Jin from Wang Ping and
Zhang Yi if you're able, or else avenge his defeat. Once your army's front
lines are reformed, swim across the river and wipe out the four officers in the
garrison, then hurry east and assist Oichi by defeating Naomasa Ii and Tadayo
Okubo. Meng Huo, Zhurong, and the Nanman officers in the north will charge you;
repel Dailai Dongzhu, Mang Yachang, Meng You as they come for you, then go west
to intercept Meng Huo and Zhurong, who will be easier to face with help from
your allies. Follow your allies as they loop around to the north, then cut your
way through Liao Hua and King Wutugu to open the gates. Nagamasa Azai and the
generic officers in the garrison will attack you, but Nagamasa will retreat
when Zhuge Liang and Tadakatsu Honda arrive and join up with your army. Squash
the generic officers until Ma Chao becomes enraged and charges you, then punish
his stubborn recklessness appropriately.

10. Rescue at Yan Province                                               [6T10]

Yuan, Zhang He, Kojiro Sasaki
Victory Conditions: Defeat Musashi Miyamoto.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Xiahou Yuan, Jia Xu or Kanbei Kuroda is defeated.

Musashi Miyamoto's army is attacking the Wei-Oda Coalition's lands. They have a
lot of ninjas with them, so watch your back if your team members aren't fast
attackers. Go after Shigekata Togo and Nobutsuna Kamiizumi first, then push
past Danzo and Gongsun Yue as you accompany your allies along the eastern path.
When you reach the southwest corner, exterminate Zhang Fu and Munenori Yagyu to
rescue Xiahou Yuan and Kanbei Kuroda. Stop Yoshiie Yamazaki's advance when the
southern garrison's gates open, then rush to Jia Xu's side and wail on Musashi
until he withdraws. Achilles will arrive in the west and begin marching on the
southern garrison, and Jia Xu will order a pincer attack against him. Clear out
Zhang Sheng as you follow Xiahou Yuan through the western garrison, then loop
around to the east and south and hit Achilles from behind while he's pinned
down by the archers. Rachel will advance from the northeastern garrison while
you fight him; break her charge, and Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane will appear in the
southeast and infiltrate your base. Let Kasumi distract Ayane while you rip
through Ryu, then help Kasumi annihilate her arch-rival. Musashi will rejoin
the battle in the north, and Zhang Jiao will appear in the west to make things
interesting. Head north from the platform in the southeast, stomping Sasuke and
heading west to assist whichever of your commanders is in greater need of a
hand. Musashi will become enraged if Zhang Jiao is defeated first, so be
prepared for an intense fight if you save him for last.

Mission Givers: Cao Cao, Zhenji, Deng Ai
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemies.
Defeat Conditions: Either Cao Cao or Pang Tong is defeated.

Pang Tong is looking into a rumor of Tamamo's appearance at Mt. Niutou. Help
his investigation by heading west, tearing through Tearaioni, and beating down
Kamioni when he charges you. You can then decide whether to approach Pang Tong
from the south or the east after doing so; regardless of which path you follow,
you should carve up every officer who gets in your way and capture the bases
you pass to cut down on troop density. Once you meet up with Pang Tong, clear
out Itaoni and Amakiri to give him some breathing room, then sweep around the
battlefield and mop up the remaining enemy officers. Pang Tong will turn
against you in a fit of paranoia, and he'll be reinforced by Zhang Fei, Wei
Yan, Guan Suo, Bao Sanniang, and Benkei. Smack some sense into all of them,
and victory will be yours.

Victory Conditions: Defeat Yuan Shao.
Defeat Conditions: Dong Zhuo is defeated.

Dong Zhuo is preparing to fight off Yuan Shao, who claims that Dong Zhuo
attacked him first. You can rectify the situation by clearing Tian Feng, Ju
Shou, Feng Ji, and Sima Zhao from the courtyard, which will open the inner
gates and allow you to intercept Yan Liang and Goemon Ishikawa as they sneak in
to attack Dong Zhuo from the northwest. Head down south again and help your
allies take down Shen Pei, Gao Gan, and Okuni by the front gates, then defeat
Chunyu Qiong to trigger Wen Chou's advance. Wipe him out, and Shennong, Dian
Wei, and Kanbei Kuroda will appear in the southeast. Dian Wei and Kanbei will
offer to talk to Yuan Shao when you approach them, but a suspicious Dong Zhuo
will order you to drive them away. Do so, then squash Shennong to draw Yuan
Shao out of his headquarters. He'll attack along with Gao Lan and Guo Tu, but
even all three of them should be no match for you. Beat them all the way back
to their homelands.

More and more heroes are gathering to stand against Tamamo, but there are still
some impostors that need to be rooted out. Guan Yu's army (colored yellow) is
friendly toward you, so help them in their struggle by leaping off the ledge to
the west and aiding Taigong Wang in his fight against Meng Da. Next, carve your
way west through Mi Fang, Fei Yi, and Tian Zhang, saving officers and boosting
your allies' morale as you go. Taigong Wang will call for a Messenger to spread
false information; clear Lei Tong, Xiang Lang, Li Hui, Liu Feng, Li Yan, and
Gao Xiang from his path as you advance toward the closed gate, then loop around
to the south, east, and north and drop in on Guan Yu to stop him from being
overwhelmed by Jiang Wei, Ma Su, and Fu Shiren. Wallop Wu Lan when he comes for
you, then leap into the ravine, cut down Deng Zhong, and hurry to the northwest
to crush Deng Ai and Zhuge Xu. Doing so will save Zhang Fei, and you can then
climb the cliff and get the drop on Li Yan, which will open the gate and allow
you to reach your allies in the west, who you can assist by flattening Fa Zheng
and Liu Ba. Once everyone is safe, follow Guan Yu to the enemy main camp in the
northeast and punish Guan Suo and Bao Sanniang to end the riot.

Defeat Conditions: Either Fu Xi or Kaguya is defeated.

Tamamo's tail has led the heroes to her...and hopefully to some answers about
the Divine Mirror and how she obtained it, as well. She'll open the battle in
hiding, but the enemy's magic will create a poisonous mist that saps your
army's life and obscures enemy positions on the map. Don't be daunted; advance
east and maul Massicot, then follow Fu Xi to the north and east to reach the
Dragon God Shrine and dispel the mist. Along the way, you'll be ambushed by
Copperhead and Goldenrod, then by an image of Fu Xi, then by Galena, Nosean,
and Botryogen. Kaguya will also be ambushed by Bushmaster and Wishbone in the
south; hurry down there to help her after clearing Fu Xi's path, then rush back
over to him and eliminate Urutu, Stripeleg, and Travertine when they launch
their ambush. When you reach the Dragon God Shrine, Leaflitter will be revealed
as the conjurer of the mist, and Himiko will appear with Levyne, Orbweaver, and
Yellowbelly to support him. Break through their assault to dispel the mist,
and Tamamo will appear in the southeast with Dodomeki, Gyuki, and four generic
demon officers. Crush her defenders and pummel her until she's ready to talk.
Da Ji will appear and teleport Tamamo to safety; beat her into submission, and
the battle will be over.

reaching it by any means necessary. Defeating her will expose her as a Kyubi
tail and earn you an orb.

H. Story Mode - Chapter 7                                                [SMC7]
This chapter focuses on the heroes' efforts to save the Heavenly Emperor and
recover the Divine Mirror by traveling into Fu Xi's past.

a. Defense of the Mystic Realm                                           [7T01]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Fu Xi, Yinglong, Guan Yu
Mission Givers: Yinglong, Fu Xi, Guan Yu
Victory Conditions: Defeat Itaoni.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Yinglong, Fu Xi or Guan Yu is defeated.

The warriors of the Mystic Realm are trying to protect their homeland from the
demon army. Vanquish Amakiri in the west and Kagewani in the north to clear out
the demons' vanguard, at which point Yinglong and Guan Yu will advance from
the north and south to initiate a pincer attack. Advance northwest via the
eastern checkpoint, leap into Onikuma's garrison, and stomp him. Next, cut your
way through the garrisons held by Kamioni and Tearaoni and help Yinglong fight
off the demon army's reinforcements as they come from the northeast. Be mindful
of the winds in the area as you double back and head southwest, carving a path
through Onra and Kaika and veering south to scatter the officers attacking Guan
Yu. Ushirome will fire on Yinglong and Fu Xi with ballistae as they follow the
northern path, so get up there and wipe him out to gain access to the enemy's
main camp. Eradicate Itaoni, and victory is yours.

b. Rescue of the Heavenly Emperor                                        [7T02]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Cai Wenji, Mitsuhide Akechi, Sima Yi
Mission Givers: Fu Xi, Cai Wenji, Mitsuhide Akechi, Sima Yi
Victory Conditions: Rescue Heavenly Emperor.
Defeat Conditions: Fu Xi is defeated.

The heroes have followed Yinglong to the Heavenly Emperor's castle, which is
now swarming with demons. Slice your way through Itaoni, Amakiri, and Kagewani
as you head south, then use the bridge to enter the castle. Turn south at the
intersection and crush Kaika, Itsuki, Onikuma, Nozusuma, Kamioni, and Furi as
you follow the southern path. A staircase will appear when Fu Xi reaches the
jewel; exterminate Hakuzosu and climb it, then eliminate Inenbi and obliterate
Onra to enter the throne room. Inside, you'll see a cutscene in which Yinglong
cracks the Divine Mirror and transforms into Orochi, after which your allies
will flee toward the escape point in the northwest with the Heavenly Emperor in
tow. Orochi will begin pursuing them shortly thereafter, so it's a good idea to
take him down if you're strong enough to do so. Tearaioni and Ushirome will
ambush your allies as they head west; beat them back and head north once the
Heavenly Emperor is ready to move again. Iju will launch an ambush as you close
in on the escape point, so make quick work of him and make good your escape.

c. War in the Mystic Realm                                               [7T03]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Nezha (Human), Hanbei Takenaka, Zhao Yun
Mission Givers: Fu Xi, Hanbei Takenaka, Nezha (Human), Zhao Yun, Sun Wukong,
Taigong Wang
Victory Conditions: Ensure Fu Xi reaches the escape point.
Defeat Conditions: Either Fu Xi or Hanbei Takenaka is defeated.

The appearance of Orochi and the incapacitation of the Heavenly Emperor have
thrown the Mystic Realm into chaos. Help restore order by laying out Lacerta
and Auriga when they defect, then doing the same to Taigong Wang. Hanbei will
come to suspect that Tamamo is involved, so let him defend the escape point and
go after Centaurus and Phoenix when they appear in the east. Rendezvous with
Vulpecula when he appears in the south, and he'll join your ranks. Follow him
west to meet Shennong, who will defect and attack you with Mensa and Draco.
Nuwa will also appear in the northwest and make a beeline for Hanbei Takenaka,
so your fight your way out of your predicament as fast as you can and hurry to
the northeast to help him. Defeating Shennong and Nuwa will open the previously
closed gates, allowing you to reach the central square and discover Tamamo.
Break through her defenders and make her pay for her deception.

d. War against the Serpent King                                          [7T04]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Lu Bu, Zhang Liao, Jiang Wei
Mission Givers: Lu Bu, Zhang Liao, Jiang Wei, Mitsuhide Akechi
Victory Conditions: Defeat Orochi.
Defeat Conditions: Heavenly Emperor is defeated.

Orochi's miasma is preventing the heroes from repairing the Divine Mirror, and
it's only going to disappear over his dead body. Make it happen by hurrying
over to the Heavenly Emperor's side and fending off Inenbi, then heading east
for Kamioni and Onikuma. Nezha will challenge Orochi to a duel and be soundly
defeated in a cutscene, after which you should take care of Itaoni to clear
out the southwest. Tearaioni, Itsuki, and Iju will ambush you as you work your
way northeast; break through their assault and cut down Furi and the Defense
Captain to gain access to the central northern garrison, then follow the
ramparts of Koshi Castle to the south and neutralize Nozusuma to lower the
drawbridge. You can then regroup with Jiang Wei and Mitsuhide Akechi and help
them repel Kaika and Ushirome.

Once all of Orochi's officers on the outside of the castle have been dealt
with, it's time to take the fight to him. The entrance to the castle is in the
east, and Kagewani will be there to greet you. Introduce yourself with the
business end of your weapon and enter the main hall, where Orochi will be
locked in battle with Lu Bu. Annihilate Amakiri to get rid of a distraction,
then go after Orochi with everything you've got. He'll recover his life and
become stronger than before if he isn't defeated within a few seconds of being
weakened, so don't let up until he's down for the count.

a. Rescue of the Mystics                                                 [7I01]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Fu Xi, Nezha (Human), Yinglong
Mission Givers: Yinglong, Fu Xi, Nezha (Human)
Victory Conditions: Rescue Auriga and Lacerta.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Yinglong, Auriga or Lacerta is defeated.

The mystics of the distant past are fighting against a virtually inexhaustible
horde of demons. Stealth is the best strategy in this battle, so head to the
undermanned central area and silence the Messenger before he can report your
movements to Tamamo's forces. Break through Amakiri's ambush as you head east,
then obliterate Onra to save Auriga. Double back and head south from the
central region, crushing Kaika when he and his archers try to take you by
surprise, then cross the bridge and stop Kamioni from doing too much damage to
Lacerta. Your next goal is to save Equuleus, who's in the southwest garrison.
Hack through Hakuzosu to get inside, then exterminate Inenbi to save your ally.
Kyubi will appear to menace you; kick her tails and flee toward the escape
point in the northwest when the garrison gates open. Demon army reinforcements
will appear in the west and north, and all of their officers will converge on
your location. Carve a path through Itaoni and Tearaioni as you advance north,
and capture the base to stymie the flow of enemy troops. If you're feeling bold
or it takes longer than you expect to clear the area of enemies, you can stand
and face the enemy officers as they come at you from the east. Onikuma and Iju
will attack as you approach the escape point. Beat them down to secure it, and
once the last allied officer escapes, victory is yours.

b. Escape from the Mystic Realm                                          [7I02]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Tamamo, Seimei Abe, Sun Wukong
Mission Givers: Tamamo, Seimei Abe, Sun Wukong
Victory Conditions: Ensure Tamamo reaches the escape point.
Defeat Conditions: Tamamo is defeated.

Tamamo has enlisted the help of Sun Wukong and Seimei Abe to escape the Mystic
Realm. A barrier will block her path as she heads northwest, and Fu Xi will
appear with Vulpecula and Sagitta to catch her in a pincer attack. Break free
of it to open the garrison gates, then return to your starting position and
proceed southwest. Cut through Camelopardalis's garrison and push west until
Monoceros turns his ballistae against you, then defeat him to capture them.
Susano'o and Grus will appear in the east and pursue you, but you can use the
northeastern ballista to trigger a rockslide and force them to take a longer
and more convoluted path. While they're negotiating it, blast through the walls
that block your passage through the maze and dispatch Equuleus, Shennong, and
Draco as you encounter them. Nezha and Mensa will appear in the east after you
overcome Susano'o, so be ready to deal with them if they catch up to you. Once
you escape the maze, take down Taigong Wang and Auriga as you head north, then
smack down Sanzang in the caverns to open the door. Nuwa will appear next to
the escape point, and she's the last enemy you'll have to face before you can
call it a day. Show her no mercy.

Clearing this battle will allow you to unlock Disturbance in Liang Province by
talking to a generic soldier in the camp.

I. Story Mode - Chapter 8                                                [SMC8]
This chapter focuses on the heroes' struggle to vanquish Tamamo after returning
from the past with the Divine Mirror.

1. Story Battles                                                         [STB8]
a. The Battle against Tamamo                                             [8T01]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Tadakatsu Honda, Zhuge Dan, Lu Xun
Mission Givers: Lu Xun, Tadakatsu Honda, Zhuge Dan
Victory Conditions: Scout out the area.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Lu Xun, Tadakatsu Honda or Zhuge Dan is defeated.

The heroes need only find and weaken Tamamo to seal her away once again, but Lu
Bu's forces seem to be standing in their way. Almost immediately after starting
out, you'll be ambushed by Song Xian in the east and Wang Kai in the west. Wipe
them both out to give your allies some breathing room, then head over to the
island near the center to encounter the cybernetic Nezha. Help him beat down
Yin Li, Sun Guan, and Wu Dun to lower the drawbridge, and veer east as you
cross it to meet Wei Xu, Zhang Miao, and Han Xian, all of whom you should mow
down. Afterward, hurry west to rejoin your allies and help them take down Hao
Meng, Xu Si, Yang Feng, and Cheng Lian. Slaughter peons outside the castle to
distract Lu Bu's officers and buy Lu Xun's message time to reach Chen Gong, who
will become suspicious when he hears that the Lu Bu in the castle is a fake.
He'll talk to Lu Bu and learn that the rumor is true, at which point he and all
of Lu Bu's other officers will defect and the castle gates will open. Rush
inside and subdue Lu Bu before he mutilates Chen Gong, which will trigger
Tamamo and several officers to appear in the northeast. Nezha will also defect,
so hurry south and break him before he breaks your allies, then do the same to
his mistress.

b. Pursuit of Kyubi                                                      [8T02]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Diaochan, Zhou Yu, Sanzang
Mission Givers: Zhou Yu, Diaochan, Sanzang, Lu Bu
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kyubi.
Defeat Conditions: Zhou Yu is defeated.

The Divine Mirror has revealed Tamamo as Kyubi, the nine-tailed fox, and the
heroes have chased her to Dongkou. Your first step to cornering her is to
escort Zhu Ran to the storehouse in the north, which you'll need to take from
Nozusuma. Next, head west and strike down Inenbi and Furi while Lu Bu creates a
diversion. Loop around to the south and east, obliterating Onikuma and Amakiri
and the three officers atop the plateau to ensure that Zhu Ran can acquire the
supplies. Hakuzosu and Iju will sail north and attack you at the western docks,
but they should be easy for you to take down. Zhu Ran will sail south and
launch a fire attack when he reaches the opposite bank, causing the morale of
Kyubi's forces to plummet and giving you easy access to her garrison. Board the
central ship after he does so, then hunt down your weakened prey amidst the
flames. Unfortunately, she'll escape, and Tadakatsu Honda, Kaguya, and Susano'o
will appear in the southwest to stop you from going after her. Don't let them
stand in your way.

c. Showdown at Odawara Castle                                            [8T03]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Kiyomasa Kato, Cao Pi, Guo Jia
Mission Givers: Cao Pi, Kiyomasa Kato, Guo Jia, Masanori Fukushima, Xiahou Dun,
Xu Zhu, Motochika Chosokabe
Victory Conditions: Defeat Kyubi, and all Tails.
Defeat Conditions: Cao Pi is defeated.

Kyubi's magical trail has allowed the heroes to track her to Odawara Castle.
You'll have to defeat her tails to weaken her, the first of which will take the
form of Nobunaga Oda and try to block your passage east. Push past him and
continue east to reach Ieyasu Tokugawa. Eradicate him to open the gates to the
castle keep, wherein you'll meet Ujiyasu Hojo. Silence him and go upstairs,
then throttle Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Kyubi. She'll teleport south and summon
Kiyomasa Kato and Cao Pi; fight your way out of the castle and cut your way
through the two impostors to confront her again. She'll teleport to the
southeast corner of the battlefield when defeated and call forth Shuten Doji
and Orochi X. Loop around to the west, south, and east to close with her,
smashing Shuten Doji and obliterating Orochi X as you meet them, then beat her
down for the third time. She'll reappear outside of the castle keep and try to
flee to an escape point in the northwest, though she'll soon stop due to
exhaustion. Seize the opportunity to chase her down and kick her tails once
more.

Clearing this battle will earn you an ending movie and unlock Mirror Realm
versions of the appropriate battles in Chapters 5, 6, and 8. It will also allow
you to edit the colors of each character's costume in Story Mode and Free Mode
and unlock two new sidequest battles by talking to the two generic soldiers
in the camp.

d. The Battle against Tamamo - Mirror Realm                              [8T04]

Recommended Team: Tadakatsu Honda, Zhuge Dan, Lu Xun
Mission Givers: Lu Xun, Tadakatsu Honda, Zhuge Dan
Victory Conditions: Scout out the area.
Defeat Conditions: Any one of Lu Xun, Tadakatsu Honda or Zhuge Dan is defeated.

Your initial strategy will be the same as it was in the original version of the
battle. When you meet Nezha, he'll charge the castle to find and destroy the
impostor, so help him fend off the ambush troops before heading east to prove
your might alongside Tadakatsu Honda. Chen Gong will confront and attack the
fake Lu Bu after getting Lu Xun's message, and Lu Xun will attack the fake
Nezha, giving you ample time to defeat both of them before Tamamo shows up.
Once she does, beat her into submission to receive two shiny new orbs.

Recommended Team: Kyubi, Orochi, Orochi X
Mission Givers: Kyubi, Orochi, Orochi X
Victory Conditions: Defeat all enemy officers.
Defeat Conditions: Kyubi is defeated.

The imprisoned Kyubi has stirred up a conflict to amuse herself. She's facing
two other factions, and you can help her emerge victorious by heading northwest
and carving up the various generic officers you meet. Bao Sanniang and Guan Suo
will also come after you; defeat them both and decide whether you want to
attack the Shu-Tokugawa forces (in the east) or the Coalition forces (in the
west) first. Assuming you choose to attack the Coalition, you'll need to climb
the stairs on the far northern edge of the map and stand up to Zhang Jiao when
he attacks you. Goemon Ishikawa will attack you as well, but he and Zhang Jiao
will both defect after being beaten into submission. Masanori Fukushima and
Nagamasa Azai will be the next ones to charge you; beat them back along with
their subordinates, and Ma Chao and Wei Yan will come at you from the east.
Head south and deal with Kanbei Kuroda as they approach, then meet them head-on
and annihilate them. Be warned that Ma Chao commands a large cavalry unit, so
you may be trampled if you're not careful. Finally, Liu Bei, Pang Tong, and Liu
Shan will charge with their subordinates as Ma Chao and Wei Yan fall. Give them
a demonstration of your awesome power and see if they learn their lesson.

b. In Search of the Self                                                 [8I02]

Recommended Team: Goemon Ishikawa, Kanbei Kuroda, Zhang Jiao
Mission Givers: Kyubi, Kanbei Kuroda, Zhang Jiao, Goemon Ishikawa
Victory Conditions: Defeat Cao Cao and Yuan Shao.
Defeat Conditions: Either Kyubi or Kanbei Kuroda is defeated.

The reflections Kyubi converted to her cause in the last battle are trying to
recruit more followers. Cut down Cao Xiu and Cao Hong as you head south, then
wait for Kanbei Kuroda to reach the garrison. He'll spread a rumor to convince
Yuan Tan to take the battlefield, and Jia Xu will start moving toward Yuan
Shao's main camp. Follow the south path, defeating Niu Jin, Wen Pin, and Cao
Zhen to open the checkpoint gates, then pass under the bridge and turn north to
intercept Jia Xu and his subordinates. You can also wipe out Yu Jin, Man Chong,
and Zang Ba if you're feeling brave and willing to deal with a massive number
of archers. Once the area is secure, backtrack to Yuan Shao's main camp and
crush Chen Qun and Cao Zhi to allow Kanbei to deliver his forged letter. Yuan
Shao will become enraged and send Yuan Tan to attack Cao Cao, then become your
ally. Keiji Maeda and Okuni will appear in the west; hurry over and eliminate
them, then carve a path through Xiahou Dun and any generic officers who stand
between you and Cao Cao's main camp. Once inside, exterminate Xu Zhu and the
rest of the officers who are defending Cao Cao, then wail on him until he's
ready to join up with you.

c. Revenge of the Fox                                                    [8I03]
Difficulty: **********
Recommended Team: Kyubi, Okuni, Yuan Shao
Mission Givers: Kyubi, Yuan Shao, Okuni, Goemon Ishikawa, Kanbei Kuroda, Zhang
Jiao
Victory Conditions: Defeat Fu Xi, Nuwa and Shennong.
Defeat Conditions: Kyubi is defeated.

It's time for Kyubi and her new allies to take revenge on the mystics who
imprisoned her! Cross the bridge and head south, then smack Sun Wukong around
until he defects and drive off Sanzang to secure his cooperation. Afterward,
head north to lay out Lepus and Seimei Abe, but watch out for the shikigami he
conjures to fight with him. Next, head west and let your allies handle the
ambush troops who appear; you'll need to focus on dodging Taigong Wang's
whirlwinds as you climb the ramp, then cutting down Shennong, Taigong Wang, and
Vela to allow your allies to advance. Turn south and rip through Ryu Hayabusa
when he appears, then rush up the stairs, wipe out Zuo Ci, and silence Kaguya
before she can turn too many of your allies against you. Double back and punish
the defectors, then enter the castle through the west gate, eradicate Fu Xi and
Nuwa, and enjoy the sweet taste of vengeance.

J. Gauntlet Mode                                                         [GAMO]
1. Overview                                                              [GOVR]
Gauntlet Mode is a new mode added to Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. It allows you
to guide a five-character party through a strange new world in search of rare
and powerful items, materials needed to craft the game's most powerful weapons,
and the dreaded demon Hundun.

After starting a new game in Gauntlet Mode, you will be able to choose your
party members. The only characters who are initially available are Zhao Yun,
Zhang Fei, Hanzo Hattori, Mitsunari Ishida, Aya, and any characters you've
unlocked by playing Story Mode. Your party members keep their levels, weapons,
and skill proficiency, but you will not be able to replace them until you start
finding sworn allies. You will then be prompted to choose a party name, which
will be visible to other players online.

The tutorial is skippable, but will help familiarize you with battles. The
basic gameplay is similar to Story Mode, albeit with some important differences
and new gameplay elements. One of the most significant is miasma, a mistlike
cloud that covers the battlefield and thickens as time passes and you defeat
more enemies. This is indicated by the Miasma Level, which normally maxes out
at 100 but can sometimes rise as high as 120. Enemies grow stronger in areas
where the Miasma Level is higher, but they are also more likely to drop rare
items and materials.

All five of your party members are present on the battlefield at once. You can
cycle between them as you normally would. Party members whose life is depleted
will be incapacitated, and will disappear from the battlefield and reappear by
your character after they recover. If all five of your party members are
incapacitated, you lose the battle.

Your party members can use a variety of different formations in battle, each of
which gives them different stat bonuses and formation skills. Formations are
classified as Offensive (red), Defensive (green), and Explorative (blue). They
gain experience and levels through use, which increases the stat bonuses they
provide. New formations become available as you unlock more characters. Enemy
officers encountered in Gauntlet Mode are able to use formation skills of their
own, so be forewarned.

The only way to change your party in Gauntlet Mode is by finding and defeating
playable officers. They have a chance to drop a green diamond when slain, which
you can give to the mystic in the camp to unlock that character as a sworn ally
after completing the battle. These items can also, though uncommonly, be found
in treasure chests or dropped by Otherworld Invaders. You can strengthen
characters' bonds in Gauntlet Mode by including them in your party (which
raises their bonds with the other party members by 40 each time they clear a
stage) or finding and defeating playable officers in battle (which raises your
party members' bonds with that character by 1).

Gauntlet Mode is divided into stages of four colors: red, yellow, green, and
blue, in ascending order of difficulty. In order to unlock a stage, you must
use a Keystone of the corresponding color. You begin with a red Keystone and
receive more for clearing stages of the appropriate color. Keystones can also
be used to change the content of previously unlocked stages. Each time you
clear and restart Gauntlet Mode, you will receive Keystones to unlock the more
difficult stages.

Highlighting a stage will show you which famous officers (playable characters)
and what types of special troops (peons) will appear there, as well as how many
battlegrounds are in the stage. Each battleground is a different map, and since
interim saves are disabled in Gauntlet Mode, you will have to clear all of the
battlegrounds in a stage before you can return to camp and save your game.

Gauntlet Mode is further divided into four layers. Each one contains a special,
scripted stage called a Boundary, which allows you to move to the next layer
when completed. On the 4th layer, you will fight Hundun. The Boundary stages
will never have famous officers listed on the last battleground, so keep this
in mind if you're trying to follow the shortest route possible to Hundun.

As you explore the stages of Gauntlet Mode, you will come across many treasure
chests and Dragon Portals. Treasure chests can be opened by attacking them and
usually contain materials, though they sometimes contain traps as well. Dragon
Portals are glowing circles that absorb some of the miasma in the area and
confer various bonuses to your party. Once activated, however, they can only be
used once more before being depleted. Activating the correct Dragon Portal will
open the escape point, which will allow you to leave the battleground.

Since the battles get progressively harder with the passing of time, you'll
want to finish them as quickly as possible unless you're hunting for officers,
items, or materials. Keep an eye out for all three, but keep moving and opening
Dragon Portals and treasure chests at every opportunity.

Between stages, you will return to the camp, where you can save your game,
undertake requests, summon new officers, reorganize your party, and buy, sell,
or craft weapons. Keep pushing through until you've cleared every stage and
discovered every sworn ally!

3. Materials                                                             [GMAT]
There are many crafting materials to be found in Gauntlet Mode, some of which
are procured from treasure chests and some of which are dropped by defeated
enemies. Materials have three ranks, with higher-ranking materials being more
likely to appear as the Miasma Level increases.

Chests on a particular battlefield will always yield one of four different
kinds of materials, as detailed in the table below. Dropped materials can come
from any of the members of an enemy family - Glorious Swords, for example, can
be dropped by Rikishi, Ozeki, or Yokozuna.

K. Duel Mode                                                             [DUMO]
1. Overview                                                              [DOVR]
Duel Mode allows you to pit a team of characters against a potentially infinite
succession of opponents in 3-on-3 battles against human- or AI-controlled
teams. You can use the strategy cards that you find throughout the game to
strengthen your team, weaken the enemy team, or counter their tactics, but be
wary - your enemies have strategy cards of their own to use against you.

Strategy cards can be used at any time in battle, provided you or your opponent
have enough battle points (BP) to afford them. Once used, they cannot be used
again until their cooldown time (CT) expires. If a strategy card is listed as
having multiple effects, they resolve in the order they appear on the card.

Your team members will regain some life each time you win a battle, though they
will remain unconscious if their life is fully depleted. You can keep fighting
until all three of your team members have been knocked unconscious, so see how
many opponents you can defeat!

2. Strategy Cards                                                        [DSCD]
The more strategy cards you collect, the more options you'll have when battling
in Duel Mode. Each character has both normal and gold strategy cards; the
normal ones are obtained by unlocking the character in Story Mode, but the gold
ones are obtained by fulfilling one of the four conditions below.

VI. Characters                                                           [CHRS]
This section includes historical and mythical tidbits, type and skill details,
weapon lists, and movesets for every playable character in the game, as well as
the requirements for unlocking them in Story Mode and obtaining their mystic
and ultimate weapons.

The character types are Power, Speed, Technique, and Wonder. Power types will
not flinch when hit with normal or projectile attacks. Speed types can do a
midair dash and a jump cancel, which allows them to interrupt their own combos
by pressing X. Technique types can sidestep by pressing X while strafing, and
do additional damage if they hit airborne enemies with charge attacks. Wonder
types can press X after hitting an enemy to do a spirit charge, which allows
them to dash forward and knock enemies off-balance for a small amount of musou,
and do additional damage if they hit off-balance enemies with charge attacks.

All characters now have two skills. The second skill is acquired after the
character receives his or her first promotion.

Mystic weapons can be obtained by playing on Hard or Chaos mode and fulfilling
specific conditions with the wielder in Story Mode battles. There are multiple
ways to acquire some of the weapons, and a treasure chest will appear on the
battlefield if you fulfill the conditions properly. Find and open the chest,
collect the contents, finish the battle, and the weapon is yours. Characters
can carry only one mystic weapon at a time, though they can find another one if
you sell or fuse the original.

Ultimate weapons can be obtained from the blacksmith in exchange for 20,000
gems, 2 crystals, and specific materials found in Gauntlet Mode. The first
material listed will be dropped by the wielder of the weapon. Characters can
carry more than one ultimate weapon if you have enough materials to craft them.

Dash attacks can be performed by pressing S after running at least six steps.

All characters have certain moves that they will perform on horseback. Pressing
T while a horse is running will make it jump, and pressing O will make it dash
forward at high speed and trample all enemies in its path. Pressing T while a
Samurai Warriors-style character is on horseback and not moving will make the
horse stomp the ground, knocking away surrounding enemies.

Dynasty Warriors-style characters and Samurai Warriors-style characters execute
their musous differently. Dynasty Warriors-style characters perform a single
attack that uses up a set amount of their musou gauge. Samurai Warriors-style
characters will slowly deplete their musou gauge, and can either execute a
musou attack for as long as the O button is held down or use a sped-up version
of their regular moveset.

Characters' full movesets will not be unlocked until they reach Level 20. Some
of the attacks described here may vary if a character's full moveset is not yet
available.

Gauntlet Mode. The recipes for each orb are listed below.

Effect: Increases attack speed.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Dragon Scale, Bronze Axe Fragment (x2)
Notes: Very useful for many characters, but some players have observed that it
screws up hitboxes on some attacks (such as Goemon Ishikawa's C4) and attribute
activation on others (such as Fu Xi's special). Fuse it at your own discretion.

d. Blast                                                                 [AN04]

Effect: Occasionally doubles movement speed upon defeating an enemy officer.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, White Stone, Crushed Shell Casing (x2)
Notes: Barely useful in Gauntlet Mode and completely useless otherwise. Even if
your entire team consists of slow characters, you can whistle for a horse, so
why waste an attribute slot on it?

k. Chronos                                                               [AN11]

Effect: EXP is more easily acquired.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Tiger's Hair, Curse Talisman Scrap (x2)
Notes: Somewhat useful for low-level characters and characters who are working
toward a promotion. Have another attribute ready to overwrite it when it

Effect: Envelops enemy in flame, inflicting additional damage.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Green Stone, Targe Fragment (x2)
Notes: Useful for most characters, especially the ones who can juggle well.
Bolt is generally better for dealing massive damage in a short span of time, so
if you have to choose, go with that one instead.

r. Flamebolt                                                             [AN18]

Effect: Combines the effects of the Flame and Wind weapon attributes.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Pearl Shard, Rusty Chain (x2)

don't have any weapons with Wind to fuse.

u. Frenzy                                                                [AN21]

Effect: Gems occasionally appear upon defeating an enemy officer.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Dragon Scale, Bolt Talisman Scrap (x2)

attribute ready to overwrite this one when the weapon's compatibility is maxed.

x. Harvest                                                               [AN24]
Effect: Peaches occasionally appear after defeating an enemy.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Hemp, Burst Scroll III (x2)
Notes: Even at the highest levels, it's not as reliable as Absorption, so go
with that one if you have to choose between them.

y. Ice                                                                   [AN25]
Effect: Occasionally freezes enemy, rendering them unable to move.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Yellow Stone, Knee Patch Fragment (x2)
Notes: Bolt, Slay, and Wind may be better for dealing lots of damage quickly,
but this one has its uses. Try giving it to Guo Huai or other characters with
inaccurate but powerful attacks, and watch as their damage-dealing potential
skyrockets.

z. Icebolt                                                               [AN26]
Effect: Combines the effects of the Ice and Bolt weapon attributes.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Amber Shard, Armor Fragment (x2)
Notes: Combines an excellent attribute with a pretty good one. Useful if you
don't have any weapons with Bolt to fuse.

aa. Iceslay                                                              [AN27]
Effect: Combines the effects of the Ice and Slay weapon attributes.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Tortoise Claw, Silk Cord Scrap (x2)
Notes: Combines an excellent attribute with a pretty good one. Useful if you
don't have any weapons with Slay to fuse.

ab. Icewind                                                              [AN28]
Effect: Combines the effects of the Ice and Wind weapon attributes.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Lapis Shard, Rusty Iron Spear (x2)
Notes: Combines an excellent attribute with a pretty good one. Useful if you
don't have any weapons with Wind to fuse.

ac. Industry                                                             [AN29]
Effect: Proficiency rises more easily.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Peach Sprout, Ice Talisman Scrap (x2)
Notes: Good for powering up characters' skills. Have another attribute ready to
overwrite this one when it becomes obsolete.

ad. Merriment                                                            [AN30]
Effect: Wine occasionally appears after defeating an enemy.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Brocade, Healing Scroll III (x2)
Notes: Even at the highest levels, it's not as reliable as Osmosis, so go with
that one if you have to choose between them.

ae. Might                                                                [AN31]
Effect: Increases damage inflicted by Charge Attacks.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Iris Sprout, Fire Spear Fragment (x2)
Notes: Very useful for most characters.

af. Osmosis                                                              [AN32]
Effect: Absorbs enemy Musou when inflicting damage.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Yellow Stone, Burnt Fletchling (x2)
Notes: Extremely useful for everyone. Makes it much easier to survive on Chaos
mode.

ag. Prosperity                                                           [AN33]
Effect: Weapon box occasionally appears upon defeating an enemy officer.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Blue Stone, Dirty Arm Cloth (x2)
Notes: Very good for farming weapons to fuse. Have another attribute ready to
overwrite this one when its usefulness starts to diminish.

ah. Providence                                                           [AN34]
Effect: Item box occasionally appears upon defeating an enemy officer.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Pheasant's Wing, Fire Talisman Scrap (x2)
Notes: Good for farming items, especially if the weapon wielder has the Fortune
skill. Have another attribute ready to overwrite this one when your items are
maxed out.

ai. Reach                                                                [AN35]
Effect: Increases attack range.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Tortoise Scale, Hemp Fabric Scrap (x2)
Notes: Pretty useful for almost every character. Hard to go wrong by fusing it.

aj. Slay                                                                 [AN36]
Effect: Inflicts damage commensurate with enemy Life Gauge max, and can defeat
enemy soldiers with one blow.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Pheasant's Wing, Wooden Cuirass Fragment (x2)
Notes: Extremely useful for everyone. Fuse it as soon as you find it.

ak. Tri-Element                                                          [AN37]
Effect: Combines the effects of the Flame, Ice and Bolt weapon attributes.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Iris Bud, Broken Fire Spear (x2)
Notes: Despite putting three attributes in one slot, this one isn't especially
useful. Most characters benefit more from either keeping enemies on the ground
or in the air, and since enemies can never be frozen and burning at the same
time, this attribute's effects on a character's damage-dealing potential will
be inconsistent at best. I don't recommend fusing it unless you have no other
way to add Bolt to a weapon.

al. Wind                                                                 [AN38]
Effect: Makes attacks unblockable and inflicts damage relative to enemy's Life
Gauge max.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Blue Stone, Old Spear (x2)
Notes: Extremely useful for everyone. Fuse it as soon as you find it.

am. Windslay                                                             [AN39]
Effect: Combines the effects of the Wind and Slay weapon attributes.
Orb Recipe: 1500 gems, 1 crystal, Peach Bud, Broken Ice Sword (x2)
Notes: Puts two great attributes in one slot. Use it to save room for other
attributes you want or need.

an. Wisdom                                                               [AN40]
Effect: Mini EXP scroll occasionally appears upon defeating an enemy officer.
Orb Recipe: 1000 gems, 1 crystal, Tortoise Scale, Healing Talisman Scrap (x2)
Notes: Decent for building up low-level characters, but the bonus soon becomes
inconsequential. Overwrite it as soon as you're able.

2. Rare                                                                  [WARA]
These attributes are listed in gold. They cannot be upgraded and can only be
found on Chaos mode or the most challenging battles of Hard mode.

a. Aggression                                                            [AR01]
Effect: Adds the effect of a War God's Axe for each 200 hit combo.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Cotton, Infiltration Scroll III (x2)
Notes: Useful for many characters. Consider fusing it if you have a spare slot.

b. Alacrity                                                              [AR02]
Effect: Adds the effect of the Winged Boots for each 500 hit combo.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Jade Shard, Escape Scroll III (x2)
Notes: The description of this attribute is incorrect - it actually gives you
full life and musou each time you get a 500 hit combo. For characters who can
safely and easily rack up combos, this can be even more useful than Absorption
and Osmosis. Give it to Xu Shu and other characters with exploitable specials
for best results.

c. Bastion                                                               [AR03]
Effect: Adds the effect of a War God's Armor for each 200 hit combo.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Silk Thread, Mist Scroll III (x2)
Notes: Useful for many characters. Consider fusing it if you have a spare slot.

d. Bombast                                                               [AR04]
Effect: Adds the effect of the Imperial Seal for each 500 hit combo.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Amber Shard, Burnt Bow (x2)
Notes: Ten seconds of unlimited musou is downright evil for characters such as
Ayane, Orochi, and Orochi X, whose musou attacks affect a large area and render
enemies helpless while inflicting damage. They and other Samurai Warriors-style
characters can also use this for sustained invulnerability if there are lots of
enemies nearby. Completely game-breaking when combined with Brilliance and
Osmosis or Wrath and Absorption.

e. Brilliance                                                            [AR05]
Effect: Imbues all attacks with attributes when Musou Gauge is full.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Plum Sprout, Mystic Talisman Scrap (x2),
Breechcloth Scrap (x2)
Notes: A weapon with this and a few other carefully-chosen attributes can turn
even a mediocre character into a killing machine. Fuse it with caution, though,
because it can take a lot of the fun and challenge out of the game.

f. Confluence                                                            [AR06]
Effect: True Triple Attack Gauge fills more quickly when attacking.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Tinsel, Qigong Talisman Scrap (x2)
Notes: Very useful for characters who can rack up combos easily. However, it
becomes useless in Gauntlet Mode.

g. Dominance                                                             [AR07]
Effect: Breaks through the enemy's guard, but doubles damage received.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Pheasant Talon, Fire Amulet (x2), Evil
Amulet (x2)
Notes: I don't quite understand the point of this one, especially if you have
Wind on a weapon. Be careful about fusing it onto the weapons of characters
with poor defense.

h. Echo                                                                  [AR08]
Effect: Sends shockwaves out from enemies against whom an attack has been
successfully landed.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Prune Sprout, Barrier Talisman Scrap (x2),
Tiger Fur (x2)
Notes: Allows attacks to strike adjacent enemies. Very deadly when combined
with Typhoon.

i. Grace                                                                 [AR09]
Effect: Imbues all attacks with attributes when Life Gauge is less than half.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Iris Bud, Wind Amulet (x2), Tiger's
Fang (x2)
Notes: Similar to Brilliance, but more conditional. The strategies required to
use this attribute effectively are, in my opinion, more trouble than they're
worth. Go with Brilliance or Wrath if you really want to break a character.

j. Multi                                                                 [AR10]
Effect: Produces doubles, and makes them attack the enemy.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Thread, Peach Seed (x2)
Notes: Very useful for Himiko and other characters with numerous projectile
attacks. Note that it works only with normal attacks.

k. Potency                                                               [AR11]
Effect: Breaks through the enemy's guard, but lowers attack speed.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Pearl Shard, Ammunition (x2), Mystic
Amulet (x2)
Notes: I don't quite understand the point of this one, especially if you have
Wind on a weapon. If you choose to fuse it onto a weapon, make sure it also has
Agility to compensate for the diminished attack speed.

l. Precision                                                             [AR12]
Effect: Adds a Critical Hit to Charge Attacks, but lowers attack speed.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Lapis Shard, Silk Arm Cloth (x2), Barrier
Amulet (x2)
Notes: Very useful for the same characters who benefit most from Might. Just be
sure that the weapon also has Agility to compensate for the diminished attack
speed.

m. Procurement                                                           [AR13]
Effect: Item boxes appear twice as often after defeating an enemy.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Tortoise Claw, Healing Amulet (x2), Wine
Gourd Shard (x2)
Notes: Useful for farming items, especially when combined with Providence.

n. Rigor                                                                 [AR14]
Effect: Adds a Critical Hit to Charge Attacks, but doubles damage received.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Dragon Talon, Thunder Amulet (x2), Qigong
Amulet (x2)
Notes: Very useful for the same characters who benefit most from Might. Just be
careful about fusing it onto the weapons of characters with poor defense.

o. Storm                                                                 [AR15]
Effect: A whirlwind will occasionally appear upon defeating an enemy officer.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Tiger Claw, Cursed Amulet (x2), Wolf's
Fang (x2)
Notes: An alternate description of this attribute states that it increases the
chance of triggering assist attacks. Both descriptions are incorrect - it
actually gives your attacks a chance to create a cutting wind that increases
the number of hits in your combos. It's a decent attribute, but I wouldn't
recommend fusing it onto a weapon until it has all of the must-have attributes.

p. Typhoon                                                               [AR16]
Effect: Triggers whirlwinds with Normal Attacks.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Twine, Evil Talisman Scrap (x2)
Notes: Very deadly when combined with Echo.

q. Verity                                                                [AR17]
Effect: Allows True Musou Attacks to be produced regardless of Life Gauge
status.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Silk, Wolf Fur (x2)
Notes: Unless you're using a character who relies primarily on his or her musou
to deal damage, don't bother with it.

r. Wrath                                                                 [AR18]
Effect: Imbues all attacks with attributes when Life Gauge is full.
Orb Recipe: 3000 gems, 2 crystals, Peach Bud, Ice Amulet (x2), Cut Chain (x2)
Notes: Very similar to Brilliance, and a better choice for characters with
potent special attacks. If you fuse it onto a weapon, make sure you also
include Absorption to keep your life up and take full advantage of it.

C. Items                                                                 [LITM]
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate features several elite items, which can be found
only in Gauntlet Mode.

1. Normal                                                                [ITNO]
These items have 20 levels of effectiveness. They can be found by breaking open
containers on the battlefield.

a. Phoenix Wing                                                          [IN01]

Effect: Increases Attack.
Notes: Raises Attack by 1% per level.

d. Chimera Shell                                                         [IN04]
Effect: Increases Defense.
Notes: Raises Defense by 1% per level.

e. Charm of Alacrity                                                     [IN05]
Effect: Increases Speed.
Notes: Raises Speed by 1% per level.

Effect: Significantly increases Attack, but lowers Defense.
Notes: Raises Attack by 2% and lowers Defense by 1% per level.

g. Shield of Sacrifice                                                   [IN07]
Effect: Significantly increases Defense, but lowers Attack.
Notes: Raises Defense by 2% and lowers Attack by 1% per level.

h. Mystic's Brace                                                        [IN08]
Effect: Proficiency increases more easily.
Notes: Raises rate of proficiency gain by 1% per level.

i. Amulet of Protection                                                  [IN09]
Effect: Decreases damage taken from enemy officers.
Notes: Lowers damage received from officers by 2% per level.

j. Tengjia Armor                                                         [IN10]

Notes: Gauntlet Mode only. Raises Musou by 2% and lowers Life by 1% per level.

m. Fleet Mail                                                            [IN13]
Effect: Significantly increases Speed, but lowers Attack.
Notes: Gauntlet Mode only. Raises Speed by 2% and lowers Attack by 1% per
level.

n. Messenger's Garb                                                      [IN14]
Effect: Significantly increases Speed, but lowers Defense.
Notes: Gauntlet Mode only. Raises Speed by 2% and lowers Defense by 1% per
level.

o. Warrior's Plate                                                       [IN15]

These items have one level of effectiveness. Many can be found by using one of
the listed officers in specific battles on Hard or Chaos mode. When you attain
the requisite K.O. count, a golden item box will appear near your character.
Pick it up and complete the battle to claim the item.

VIII. Questions & Answers                                                [QUAN]
Q: Why a Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate FAQ?
A: It hadn't been done yet, and I'd already written a FAQ for WO3, so I figured
I may as well update it for the times.

Q: You got the names of all the characters from Samurai Warriors backwards!
You're a moron who knows nothing of Japanese!
A: Blame Koei for that one. I know that they anglicized the names, but I also
know that most of the people who read this FAQ are going to be more used to
seeing the anglicized names than the original Japanese. Therefore, I decided to
use the anglicized names to keep the confusion to a minimum.

Q: I keep dying/can't kill anyone! What should I do?
A: Spend growth points to level your characters up, or gems to buy and fuse
better weapons for them. You can also bring them into battle with higher-level
characters and use TTAs to score them large numbers of K.O.s. If you don't have
gems or higher-level characters, try playing on a lower difficulty setting.

Q: Where should I go to grind characters?
A: For characters under Level 20, I prefer the Battle of Yiling - Redux on
Normal. I'll capture all the bases in the south and east, then fight my way to
the archway by Kiyomori Taira and slaughter peons in front of it. In a little
over 30 minutes, I can max out the proficiency of two characters' skills and
earn them at least four levels each.

For characters at or above Level 20, I prefer the Battle of Xu Province for
its high troop density. Gauntlet Mode and the DLC battles are good options, as
well.

Q: Have you tried out much of the downloadable content?
A: Just a few of the DLC battles. Ninjas United is great for weapon and item
runs and testing character/party setups.

Q: I fulfilled the requirements to obtain one of the mystic weapons, but I
didn't get it! What gives?
A: Make sure that the difficulty is set to Hard or Chaos, that the wielder of
the weapon personally fulfills all of the conditions to obtain it, and that
you're playing the correct version of the battle.

Q: I fulfilled the requirements to obtain one of the unique items, but I didn't
get it! What gives?
A: Make sure that the difficulty is set to Hard or Chaos, and that you're not
playing the Redux version of the battle.

Q: I can't find any Escape Ninjas in Gauntlet Mode! Where are they hiding?
A: They spawn so rarely that it's entirely possible to clear every stage in
Gauntlet Mode without meeting them. If you have this problem, go to the yellow
Boundary stage on the 3rd layer and keep using Keystones to change its contents
until Escape Ninjas appear on the list of troop types. This stage will always
have three battlefields, so you have better than normal odds of finding Escape
Ninjas on one of them.

If you run out of yellow Keystones without finding Escape Ninjas, you can
either farm some more of them or quit, load, and try again. It may take awhile,
so be patient.

Q: Your FAQ sucks! I've crapped out better FAQs than this!
A: As soon as you find a way to upload excrement, you should post your wondrous
creation for all to see.

Q: I posted my FAQ, and everyone I know thinks it's better than yours! Your FAQ
really DOES suck!
A: Congratulations! I am in awe of your superior FAQ-writing skills! Now go
away.

Q: This is the best FAQ I've ever read! You're a genius and a god among men,
and I want to know more about you so that I can immortalize you!
A: Yeah, I get that a lot. My contact info's listed below.

Q: <insert some question that has nothing to do with Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate
or the FAQ here>
A: See the second sentence of my previous answer.
