In this Guide, I'll show you how to be a good Rera player, and some of her useful abilities (one move was missing to her), not only that, I'll show you how to beat the Bosses! So sit down, relax and enjoy!!!^_^ ---------- 2. Some Introduction-Introduction ---------- "Vanity of Vanities. Kill the Buddha as you meet him, Kill the Father as you meet him. Never be captivated by anyone, Just live yourself the way you are." -Genjo Sanzo, Gensoumaden Saiyuki Who is Rera you ask? Good question, Rera is Nakoruru's "Yami" side with a detached emotion (I was hooked up of the word Yami instead of other self or other side, but it's on my opinion anyway...) and used Nakoruru's physical form and decided to show no mercy (or the "Take no Prisoners" mentality) on anyone for distrupting nature. She uses her wolf Shikuruu to aid her. I've been playing Nakoruru since I was grade two and there was Rera. In my opinion, she has the personality of Bakuten Shoot Beyblade's Kai Hiwatari and her hair ALMOST (or not almost) like Kon Rei (also from Bakuten Shoot Beyblade), even her muffler is also kakkoi!! If you players (or Nakoruru lovers/fans) played her Rasetsu (or Bust) form, then expect something from her. So, what move was missing to her? Simple, her...Epunkine Shikite (you know...if you're knocked down, Shikuruu will attack the opponent). Ewan ko kung bakit pa nila tinanggal pero nasa kanila yan! That's life! ---------- 3. Basic Controls ---------- f- forward b- backward d- down u- up uf- up forward ub- up backward df- down forward db- down backward A- Weak Slash B- Medium Slash A+B- Heavy Slash C- Kick C+f/b- Guard Destroyer D- Special D+d- Crouch D+f- Small Jump D+df/db- Forward/Backward Roll d,db,b+CD- Mu no Kyouchi In order to use this, you life gauge must flash blue and see the little indicator above the life bar? It can be increased by getting hit to the opponent and it should be near full and hold down D button, this will make Rera...meditate and see the indicator moving! Mu no Kyouchi then press BCD- Issen b,f,df,d+Start- Suicide If you can't beat your opponent or having a hard time, use this to admit yourself defeat to save yourselves and in the next round, notice that you Ikari Gauge has increased. ABC- Ikari Bakuhatsu Using it, she'll shout "Nigerusanai wa yo!" (You can't escape now!) Start 3x- Discard while Taunting Using this move, Rera will throw her weapon and she'll say "Kudaranai..." (This is stupid...) 3.a Color Coding Take note on what button you press will change in color. A Button is the original color. Sorry readers my eyesight's kinda blurry (I'm no color blind). A- Purple and Light Brown Clothing, Violet Shoes, Light Brown and Violet Muffler, Dark Violet Hair, Red Jewel Shikuruu- Light Blue and White B- Blue Green and White Clothing, Blue Green Shoes, White and Cerulean Muffler, Blue Hair, Red Jewel Shikuruu- Violet and Grey C- Black and Yellow Clothing, Black Shoes, Yellow and Black Muffler, Black Hair, Orange Jewel Shikuruu- Grey D- Red and White Clothing, Red Shoes, White and Red Muffler, Red Hair, Yellow Jewel Shikuruu- Brown ---------- 4. Special Moves ---------- These moves were came from the Official Website of Samurai Spirits Rei (www.samurai-zero.jp). Ohkami ni Noru- b,d,db+C Rera hops on Shikuruu and she says "Ikuwayo, Shikuruu." (Let's go, Shikuruu.) Sankaku Tobi- press ub/uf while you're on the side of the screen Does a wall jump, good for avoiding opponents. Kamui Fumu Kesupu- in air, d+C OK, so it's an air throw (unless your opponent is close in the air). During the Ohkami ni Noru, you can do the following moves: Jump Off- press C or in any direction+C Rera hops off on Shikuruu. You cannot perform Imeru Shikite, Kanto Shikite, Meru Shikite, Bunshin Kougeki (unless you perform Ohkami ni Noru again). Rera Kishima Teku- Jump Off then uf+C A heel attack. It's an OK move. Meru Shikite- b,db,d+A,B or AB Does a rush attack which is a good start for attacking opponents on the ground. Kanto Shikite- f,d,df+A,B or AB Performs a upper diagonal rush attack. Excellent for jumping opponents. Imeru Shikite- in air d,df,f+A,B or AB Does a lower diagonal rush attack. Bunshin Kougeki- after performing Meru Shikite, Kanto Shikite or Imeru Shikite, press any direction except up+C If you perform any of the 3 Shikite moves, Rera will attack the opponent. It is also good when the opponent is off balance. Combo: Shikite+Bunshin Kougeki= 2 Hits Ikari Hissatsu (Ikari Gauge must be FULL) Nupeki Kamui Shikite- d,df,f+CD You can do this move even if you didn't perform Ohkami ni Noru. Anyhow, Rera will hop on to Shikuruu, rushes, do a flying upward slash and in the air, she will do a Kamui Risse and the she discards the opponent's his/her weapon. Combo: 8 Hits+Opponent's Weapon Disacard ---------- 5. How to beat... ---------- In this game, there are four (or three) bosses that you can fight in Story Mode (the Japanese Version is better than the US Version). Defeating them seems almost possible or impossible depending on your strategy. Well, I'll list 'em down. 5.a Yorozu Sankuro In my opinion, he doubtly looks like Mr. Go, the "Man of Thunder" of Groove Adventure Rave (although Elie said the he isn't Jieghart whom he is also called the Man of Thunder) who wields a huge hammer (Mr. Go DOES wield a hammer -_-^). Next, he TOTALLY pisses me off because he uses his three companions to finish the dirty job out of you. Not only that, he regains himself some lost health by his Sushi (especially when his Ikari Gauge is FULL, I'm warning you!). So, how do you do that? First off, the hard way: He either summons Ippachi, the thin guy who grabs you and impossible to move. Goshiichi, a fat(?) guy with a big fist which he can smash you on the ground and Fuuyo (who looks like Rosa of Groove Adventure Rave), a brown-haired girl who can use a sliding kick. I have a simple (but not that effective) idea of avoiding them. If he summons: Ippachi- perform first Ohkami ni Noru and when Sankuro does, do an Imeru Shikite on him. Goshiichi- almost impossible to avoid, just block, jump or crouch (D+d). Fuuyo- either jump or use Imeru Shikite. It'll work. Second, the cheap way: Get close to him and use Guard Destroyer (C+f/b) and press A or B, that's it. 5.b Kuroukochi Yumeji The second to the hardest. She seems like to copy techniques from other characters (like Nakoruru's Annu Mutsube, Charlotte's Bayonette Lunge, Haoumaru's Kougetsu Zan, etc.) and in my opinion, SHE'S WAY TOO HARD!! Yumeji has two of her own techniques, Kagerou (which is almost identical to Shaman King Yoh Asakura's Amidaryuu: Shinkuu Butagiri) and Sasameyuuki (similar to Tachibana Ukyo's Sasameyuuki but she will do very quick slashes and does a maximum combo of 33 Hits!! Yikes!). But, the only way is to use Imeru Shikite and Kanto Shikite (if Yumeji blocks Imeru Shikite then you can perform it! It works, mind you!). One thing I'm concered about Yumeji is she doesn't have at least one Ikari Hissatsu. Oh, I almost forgot, she always use Hattori Hanzo's Mozu Otoshi technique so just avoid it when she uses it. 5.c Hinowanokami Kyougokuu Gaou Yup, he's the boss and he's really cheap. Round One, when you hit him, you see that his Ikari Gauge is not increasing, don't you? Well, it is a yes but his spear techniques are ALMOST 100% impossible to avoid and don't get close to him or else he'll deliver a nasty attack on you and don't even bother jumping, he'll use his Gin Seppu (came from Mujika's Silver Technique from Groove Adventure Rave) to keep away from you. Just avoid and use Imeru Shikite and Round One's done. 5.d Ankiou OK, since you slapped him happy, he wasn't all that happy. He now uses the power of Darkness to turn himself into Ankiou. He's big and hard! When he turns into Ankiou, avoid him. Why? Because you won't even inflict neither a tiny damage on him and if you get close to Ankiou, he'll grab you and attempt to use his deadly technique, Tenpa Kassatsu (grabs you, throws you above, impales you with his horn and a blast of green flame for 3 Hits). His Horn Buster (he dashes with his horn and when it hits, he'll throw you to the other side of the screen) is blockable and avoidable (unless you perform Sankaku Tobi) but you'll receive some chipping damage from blocking his technique. And when he reverts back to Gaou, that's your chance to attack him. Refer to 5.c and here, that's it! He's gone and the battle has finally come to an end. ---------- 6. Her Seiyuu behind her!? ---------- Yup! She has a Seiyuu (or Voice Actor/Actress) and she's Kyouko Hikami!! She also voice from other games, anime and drama CDs as well. I'll list some of her characters who is also her Seiyuu.
