Copyright 2007-2008 Matthew Short ******************************************************************************* 2. Introduction: ------------------ Hey! This is an FAQ about my favourite character... Kunoichi! This is my first FAQ that I have ever done so it's obviously not going to be spot on the first time but thats alright. I'm sure there are plenty of nice people out there who will tell me what I have done wrong. I will give credit to them for helping me. Well I think I have said enough ( technically typed but hey ) so I hope you enjoy this FAQ and I hope that it helps you. ******************************************************************************* 3. Story: ----------- Descending from above, the evil Serpent King Orochi shattered time and space to test his strength against the most courageous warriors from Ancient China and Feudal Japan. Great armies fell, yet many are still fighting for survival - and now the greatest showdown in history is about to take place... ( Taken from the back of the game case ) ******************************************************************************* 4. Controls: -------------- The controls in this game are similar to the others, but here is a quick list, to show you what buttons do what: Main Menu or Battle Menu: --------------------------- Left Analogue Stick or directional buttons = Move up and down X = Confirm Triangle = Back Select a character screen: ---------------------------- Left Analogue Stick or directional buttons = Move in all directions X = Confirm Triangle = Back Circle = Change character outfit In battle: ------------ Square = Normal Attack Triangle = Charge Attack Circle = Musou Attack X = Jump L1 = Block R1 = Special Ability L2 - R2 = Switch between characters in your team Select = Call for horse Start = Open up battle menu Left Analogue Stick = Move around R3 ( Push Right Analogue Stick in ) = Change map type Right Analogue Stick = Change the camera angle Gallery: ---------- Left Analogue Stick or directional buttons = Move up and down X = Confirm Triangle = Back Highlighting Picture in the Gallery: -------------------------------------- X = See a bigger version Triangle = Back Circle = Set as background Square = Remove background ******************************************************************************* 5.a) Kunoichi: Who is Kunoichi? --------------------------------- That is a good question. Kunoichi is a ninja. She is the protector of Yukimura Sanada. She stayed with him through thick and thin in Samurai Warriors. Now she returns in Warriors Orochi. Kunoichi is a power type character. ******************************************************************************* 5.b) Kunoichi: History ------------------------ Not much to put here. Kunoichi isn't real! But in Samurai Warriors she was the protector of Yukimura Sanada... She wasn't in Samurai Warriors 2 as she was replaced by Nene. But Kunoichi is believed to have been made up of the different parts of the ninja troop that protected Yukimura Sanada. ******************************************************************************* 5.c) Kunoichi: Overall story involvement ------------------------------------------- Kunoichi's is trying to defeat Orochi. She works with the Wu army. There is not much to put here as she is unlocked through a gaiden and isn't in many stages. ******************************************************************************* 5.d) Kunoichi: Changes ------------------------- Kunoichi is pretty much the same as she was in Samurai Warriors. They have made some slight changes though... Her alternate outfit is just a different colour of her first outfit. Her SSTTT Move is changed, instead of send out a shooting light or whatever element you had equipped at the time, she just lets off an explosion that hits the enemies with whatever elements you have equipped. She has an R1 special now. She can't double jump or roll anymore. That's all. ******************************************************************************* 5.e) Kunoichi: Moveset ------------------------- S = Square T = Triangle Standing Attacks: ------------------- S = Running flip with knives in her hands ( Moving ) SSSSSSSS = A series of knife attacks with 4 round house kicks and a twisting kick in a handstand. TTT = Charges up and runs attacking with her knives as she goes followed by a flip and attack. STTT = She hits them once, then smacks them into the air, then she jumps up after them with a series of flips with her knives in her hands, when she reaches the top, she lets off an explosion and sets fire to her opponent as she jumps back down. SSTTT = She hits them twice, then kicks them, does a backflip, spins around at an angle, then lets off a big explosion and does another backflip. SSSTTT = She hits them three times, then starts going forwards using her knives at the same time and finishes the combo by throwing them, they circle around in front of her. Musou = She spins around repeatedly with her knives in her hands. True Musou = Exactly the same apart from at the end she spins around at an angle. Jump Attack = Slashes with both knives. Jump Charge = Falls with her knives and digs them into whatever is there, then does a backflip at the end. L1 = Block ( Not Moving ) L1 + Left Analogue Stick = Block ( Moving ) R1 = Kunoichi does a backwards dash and becomes invincible for a short period of time. ( She goes transparent like the phantoms that can hurt you, but you can't hurt them ) This also increases her attack power. Select = Call for a horse. ( Not inside a castle ) Mounted Attacks: ------------------ T = The horse rears up and attacks the enemy ( Not moving ) T = The horse jumps and lands, hurts the enemy ( Moving ) SSSSSSSS = Attacks to her right 8 times. ST = Attacks to her right once, then throws the knife upwards from a low position. SST = Attacks to her right twice, then throws an explosive. SSST = Attacks to her right 3 times, then throws both of her knives and then catches them. Musou = The horse charges forwards with a barrier in front of it, it hits anybody in it's way. L1 = Block ( Not Moving ) L1 + Left Analogue Stick = Block ( Moving ) ******************************************************************************* 5.f) Kunoichi: How to unlock her ----------------------------------- Unlocking Kunoichi is pretty easy First of all do the Wu Story. When you unlock Gaiden 4, do it. This is the battle of Wan Castle just in case you have the wrong one. Here is what you have to do... -------------------------------- You will have a very small battle map. The only generals with you are Ieyasu Tokugawa and Hanzo Hattori. All you have to do is make sure that the peasants and people who appear, reach the escape point. Kunoichi will join the battle halfway through. At the end of the battle she will say she will join you, if you have done it right. Here is the order of which the peasants come... ------------------------------------------------- Peasant Lady Samurai Peasant Maidservant Village Elder Yoshimoto Imagawa ******************************************************************************* 5.g) Kunoichi: Why use her? ----------------------------- This is a good question! Why should you use Kunoichi? Because I said so... Not really. Because she's one of the quickest characters in the game, her R1 special is great for when you're in Chaos mode, her moves look good and deal alot of damage. Her attacks are also quite speedy and she has quite a good range with her weapon attacks. With the right attributes on her weapon she has the potential to become one of the best characters in the game! Just give her a try! ******************************************************************************* 5.h) Kunoichi: Who works best in a team with her? --------------------------------------------------- Thats really a matter of opinion on who works best in a team with her... but if you build up Ranmaru, then he's good with her... Hideyoshi is great with his special move, she's already quick as it is but with his special, you can imagine how quick she would be then. Or you could just choose whoever works best for you... your favourite character, or your strongest character, it's entirely up to you! Oh on a side note... Hideyoshi is good with Kunoichi, but I have to admit, his voice is very annoying so don't let that stop you from using him, although it nearly stopped me from using him. Here are some of the teams that I have used... Here you go: --------------- Team 1 -------- Kunoichi, Xing Cai and Ranmaru Mori This team is great if you use Xing Cai's special ability a lot, her specials are great if you can join the together, First press R1 and the left Analogue stick for her to do a backflip and a kind of tornado come out, then press R1 again quickly to hit the enemy with her shield, after that, jump and do her charge, repeat until the enemy dies. Ranmaru is a great crowd clearer. His SSSTTT is a great crowd clearer if you have Agility 10. Read below to know how to use Kunoichi. Team 2 -------- Kunoichi, Ginchiyo Tachibana and Zhao Yun This team is very good also. Ginchiyo is great for her R1 special, especially if you are on a harder difficulty. It completely clears the zone you are in if she is powerful enough. It won't kill the enemy generals but many of the peons. Zhao Yun is good for his quick charge attacks if you have Agility 10 on him. His SSST is a great crowd clearer. Read below to know how to use Kunoichi. Team 3 -------- Kunoichi, Da Ji and Xing Cai This team is a very good team. You know what Xing Cai is for. ( if not read the Team 1 section ) Da Ji is very good because of her special ability too. She can counter attack and she can also deal alot of damage with her T move. This is basically just her special just not as long and not as powerful, but it's still good. Da Ji is also very mobile, hard to use yes, but very mobile. When she attack she can easily get out of danger. Read below to know how to use Kunoichi. ******************************************************************************* 5.i) Kunoichi: How to use her ------------------------------- Kunoichi is a relatively easy character to use. Her moves are quite easy to pull off. Her only problem is her TTT move. I think it is very uneffective, hard to control and not very powerful. Her STTT is a good move as it can kill a general. On one of the harder difficulty settings. Her SSTTT is her best charge move as this a great crowd clearer and hurts many of the generals. This is only effective if you have the right attributes on your weapon. There is a section later about this, skip to it if you want to know some good weapon combinations for her. Her SSSTTT is effective too. It is a good crowd clearer and can get her out of some sticky situations. For instance, if you were on Chaos mode and her health bar was red, as were all of your other characters. Use this move to get her out of there. Her SSSSSSSS combo is not very effective either, the handstand kick at the end is to slow and this move is not very powerful at all. This move is quite difficult for some people to pull off. I personally have no problem with it but some others do. Her R1 special is very effective. Use this if you need to kill someone quick, if you are in trouble, or if you just want to use it for fun. ******************************************************************************* 5.j) Kunoichi: Recommended Weapon Attributes ---------------------------------------------- First off I'm going to give you a list of the attributes, and what they do. Here you go... ----------------- Fire: Sets opponent on fire with some charge attacks, good for the earlier difficulty settings. Ice: Freezes opponents with some charge attacks. Bolt: Very powerful, with some charge attacks but 100% guaranteed to happen. Very powerful, good for all modes. Slay: Very powerful, does good damage against generals and can kill peons in one hit, with some charge attacks. Brave: Increases your attack strength against generals. Flash: Breaks through the enemie's guard. Air: Increases your attack strength when enemies are airborne. Range: Increases your attack range. Multi: Produces Clones when doing charge attacks. Drain: Absorbs enemy's life. Might: Increases attack strength. Absorb: Absorbs enemy's musou. Agility: Increases attack speed, all charge attacks. Rage: Increases Strength, Decreases Health. Thats all of them. All of these go up to 10, the attack goes up 20 and you can have 8 slots. Here's the weapons: --------------------- Weapon 1: ----------- Bolt Slay Flash Range Might Agility Multi Absorb This weapon is great for killing things. A very quick weapon with good strength and very powerful. Weapon 2: ------------ Bolt Slay Flash Range Might Agility Brave Absorb This weapon is pretty much the same, just that added advantage against generals. It honestly doesn't matter which weapon you choose, they are both good. ******************************************************************************* 5.k) Kunoichi: How to unlock her Personal Item ------------------------------------------------- Unlocking Kunoichi's Personal Item is very easy First of all do the Wu Story. The battle is Anegawa, Gaiden 5 Oh you have to be Kunoichi for all of this. Make sure you have Sun Ce in your party, otherwise you cannot get Kunoichi's Personal Item. You don't have to be him, just make sure he is in your team. Bear in mind, you can get this item on any difficulty setting. Here is what you have to do... -------------------------------- First off go to the area where Gao Shun is. Zhang He will appear. Kill Gao Shun, Zhang He and Niu Jin. The gates will open. Make sure you have 100 kills before you go in. Ally with Da Qiao. Now go to where her reinforcements are. Sun Shao is the nearest to the item. It will show you on history if you don't know where it is. Open the Yellow/Black Box and there will be an item bag inside. Collect it and then go and kill Dong Zhuo. At the end of the battle the item will be yours. The name of her Personal Item is Golden Incense for those of you who were wondering. ******************************************************************************* 5.l) Kunoichi: How to get a good 4th weapon ---------------------------------------------- To get Kunoichi a good 4th weapon do this... Get her to a level 80+ Get her Personal Item Get her proficiency maxed Get a good 3rd weapon Now go to the Wu Story and go Gaiden 4, Wan Castle. Yes this is the stage that you unlocked Kunoichi on. It doesn't matter who you have in your team as you should only need Kunoichi for this battle. Okay. Done? Do this level on Chaos mode! Yes Chaos mode! There are 4 weapon boxes in this level. 3 in actual boxes and 1 off of Pang De. This level really isn't hard. You don't even have to make sure that the peasants survive. Now that you have got the 4th weapon, it's time to start using it! Make sure you have a lot of weapon fusion points. Because you are going to need them. Note: ------- This stage is great for getting everybodies 4th weapons. Just use Kunoichi and get even the weakest character's 4th weapons! ******************************************************************************* 5.m) Kunoichi: Name of Weapons --------------------------------- Here's the names of Kunoichi's weapons and their base attacks Here they are: ----------------- 1st Weapon ------------- Dagger Base Attack = 9 2nd Weapon ------------- Whirlwind Base Attack = 18 3rd Weapon ------------- Cyclone Base Attack = 36 4th Weapon ------------- Shiranui Base Attack = 72 ******************************************************************************* 5.n) Kunoichi: Abilities she unlocks --------------------------------------- Okay, here I am going to put the skills Kunoichi unlocks, and how she unlocks them.

Thats them all! ******************************************************************************* 5.o) Kunoichi: Glitch with her R1 Special ------------------------------------------- Okay, well this glitch isn't good it is bad. I don't know how many people it has happened to but this is guarenteed to fix it. Here is what the glitch does: ------------------------------- When you are in battle and you press R1, she'll do the backwards dash but not become invincible and phantom like. This happened to me but luckily I found the way to fix it. Here is the way to fix it: ---------------------------- To fix the glitch, just get Kunoichi's Personal Item. That will make the special last longer too. ******************************************************************************* 6. FAQ: ---------- Okay here we go... Nobody really asks me questions about Kunoichi... I have an idea, I'll make some up! Question: Is Kunoichi in this game? Answer: Yes, if she wasn't I wouldn't be doing this FAQ about her would I? Question: Which weapon do you use in your Recommended Weapon Attributes, 1 or 2? Answer: 1. Question: Which team do you use in your who works best in a team with her, 1, 2 or 3? Answer: All of them, but I use 1 and 3 alot. Question: What is Kunoichi best at, Crowd Clearing, or General Defeating? Answer: Both, her STTT is good for General Defeating, but her SSTTT and SSSTTT are both good for Crowd Clearing, SSTTT is not a bad General Defeater either! Question: Which one of Kunoichi's outfits do you like better in this game, number 1 or 2? Answer: 1 Question: Why does Kunoichi wear that stupid hat? Answer: I don't know? Go and ask the game producers, and I think it looks cool. Question: This FAQ is rubbish! Answer: Go and make your own then! And that wasn't even a question. There we go! ******************************************************************************* 7. Credits ------------ KOEI: For making DW and SW and this great game!
