Contact Info {{{{-----Introduction------}}}} Hello this here is my first FAQ. I decided to do it on something simple, At least I hope its simple. Iím trying my best so hopefully this goes okay. I am a big fan of InuYasha and when I saw that there were no FAQs on it yet I figured I'd do the first. {{{{-----Storyline/ Summary------}}}} In InuYasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask you play a Japanese school boy/ girl who is transported to the time of Feudal Japan. After meeting the half-demon, Inuyasha, you team up with him and his group to try and find away home But is there actualy a reason you were brought to Feudal Japan? {{{{-----Walkthrough------}}}} !*!This walkthrough is for the boy character. Because from what I've seen the two are exactly the same. I will go through the game as both characters to get the scripts so if there are any major differences I will post them.* !*!If you just want to progress through the game without jumping to every demonic aura (purple clouds) and without getting all the items, I will mark things you can skip with a "-*-" at the beggining and end of the paragraph. But it you want to get all the items and etc. Then read everything if you want, as I will point out every item I have found and all the Demonic Auras.* !*!Special notes will be marked with a !*! When you start out the game there will be an anime cut scene starting with your character being clued in on all the recent happenings at school. Its pretty much the same scene for both characters maybe with some different dialogue. When your character gets off the bus they will be asked to go to a storehouse on the family shrine to get some supplies for a festival. The floor will break and your character will try to get up causing them to fall into a time slip. This is where the game starts. ---1. Beginning (To Kaede's Village--- and battle tutorial) After Kururugi comes to he will begin to call for help to no avail. Once hes finished. You have to move to the next place to progress. Right or left? They both go to the same place so it doesnt matter. After that painful decision Kururugi will try calling home with no luck either. Head left to the next place. Some people! Yay!! They can help!... Nope they seem to have mistaken you for a demon... Kururugi will run to the next area. Just when you think it's safe to go back in the forests.A demon, who looks something like my ex, attacks you and threatens to eat you. Right when he attacks Kururugiglows and a blinding light appears. When he comes to, Inuyasha the half-demon. Will be standing over Kururugi. After confusing him with talk of 'the present', he will mention that Kaede's village is nearby and that Kagome should be there and can explain things. He says to follow him and the two move to the next area. !*!Two things you need to know to survive in this game. 1. Purple Clouds are Demonic Auras which have demons ready to fight. 2.White glowing orbs are items! About halfway down the path in the next area. Inuyasha will stop in front of purple cloud. He mentions that the smell of demons is coming from it. Then suggests they face them. Walk towards it to start your first battle! !*!If you want to skip past this battle tutorial, scroll down to the ---Back to Walkthrough--- break. *---(Battle Tutorial)--- -*-Since this game doesn't really have an in game battle tutorial I'll have to aquaint you with the battle system you'll come to know very well. -*-When the battle starts either the enemy or your party will attack first. You can some times tell who will attack first by what your party says at the begginging of the battle. For example, if someone says; "Looks like the enemy hasn't caught on yet.", It means you get to attack first with your entire party. If they say; "Watch out, a surprise attack!", then the enemy party attacks first. -*-When it is your turn the side menu will pop up. You can choose; Battle, Tech, Items, Defend, or Run Away. You only get one action per turn so choose wisely. Battle: This is just using your characters basic attack. It does a pretty good amount of damage. Especially with Inuyasha. Tech: This can get complicated. I will seperate this into three parts. Norm Tech: Using no energy whatsoever, attack enemies with various attacks with different effects. SP Tech: This is where energy comes into play. These attacks range from uber strong. To incredibly useful. *Always remember when using these attacks to pay attention to the turn order in the top right hand corner. Co-op Tech: Combinign the strength of two party members, unleash devastating attacks on opponents. These can be pretty complicated, but only if you let them be. EX. If you want to attack with Kagome and Sango. Say the attack order goes like this: Kagome; Inuyasha, Sango, enemy. On Kagome's turn choose your co-op attack with Sango. Kagome will pass her turn and it will be Inuyasha's. Inuyasha attacks like he would normally adn it is now Sango's turn. Sango will say something to Kagome and Kagome will acknowledge her. Then an anime scee plays and the two attack. But if the turn order goes something like: Kagome, Inuyasha, Kururugi, Shippo, Enemy, Miroku, Enemy, Enemy, Sango; then don't even bother trying to do the attack. It's jsut not wort wasting the turn. Items Items are used in battleto temporarialy rise stats or to recover health and energy. In the course of the game you will come to rely on items, so don't take them for granted. Defend: Give up taking action to raise you defense till your next turn. Run Away: You wuss!!! Naw jsut kidding I do it too. If you just don't want to battle then try running. It doesn't always work through. !*! Warning: This may trigger a glitch! See the glitches section for details. -*-If you need a more detailed guide for battling contact me using the info given in the Contact Info section. -*-(END) ----Back to Walkthrough--- !*!There are random battles in this game so don't think that by avoiding the clouds you won't have to battle! The first battle will be against a "Canis Demon" and a "Bad Luck Bat". Both are pretty weak demons even at this point in the game. One attack from Inuyasha should take care of the "Canis Demon", same goes for the Bad Luck Bat. EASY WIN! EASY WIN! Once the battle is over, the last person to attack will comment and you wil gain your experience. Inuyasha should level up to level 2 and learn Iron Reaver S. S. (Iron Reaver Soul Stealer). Your first Technique! You also should find a "Medicinal Herb" one of the items that replenishes health in and out of battle. After the battle Inuyasha will ask why Kururugi didn't use the power from earlier. Myoga will show up and try to explain the whole thing which only confuses Kururugi. All that can be done is to go to Kaede's Village and find out. Head left to the next area. -*-There are two demon clouds in this area. The closest one to you contains a "Ghost" These are pretty weak demons two but they can put your party members to sleep. Making them unable to attack until they are woken up by being attacked or using an item on them. The second cloud inthe northern part of the area contains 3 "Canis Demons". -*-Head south in order to find a "Medicinal Herb". Its at the bottom edge of the clearing in the middle. Looks for a sparkly white orb. Head North to continue. The next area is a hooked narrow path that can be hard to see at times. Because it will go through the trees. -*-There is "Medicinal Herb near the tree on the right side of the path. -*-The purple cloud along the path contains a "Ghost" and 2 "Canis Demons". You will find a "Medicinal Herb" Travel along the path curving to the right at the top of the screen. Even though you can't see Kururugi, keep heading right to the next area. The next stretch of path doesn't contain any clouds or items to just move along to the map. Once you see the map you should be at Kaede's Village. Here are some things you need to know about the map. 1.Exclamation Marks: Mark places where an event that is needed to progress the story is waiting. 2.Question Marks: Mark places where a sub-event is waiting. These events are not needed to progress the story, but they may have rare items or are just entertaining and fun. If there is more than one sub-event on hte map at a time then all sub-events will dissapear after you have completed one of the ones on the map. 3. You can only visit a place on the map if there is a white dotted line connecting you to it. Since Kaede's village is the only place activated at the start you do not need the dotted line you can just go there. 4.Pressing Triangle on the map will bring you to the log records screen there you can save your game. At this point press triangle to save your game and press X to enter Kaede's Village. ---2. Kaede's Village--- {{{{-----Techniques------}}}} !*!These are all the in-game summarys for attacks.

Any additional information that I feel is necessary I will be posted. ---1. Restorative Items--- Items that replenish HP and energy as well as curing status abnormalitites and battle inabilities* !*!Note: Items with *'s can only be used in battle !*!Note: Status Abnormalitites are effects such as sleep, confusion etc. Battle inabilities are when your character loses all HP and faints. So something that Recovers Battle inability would work something like a Phoenix Down in FF, and would have the same effect as Miroku's Spiritual Life Technique Akebia: "Recovers 25 HP" * Antidote: "Recovers Poison" Bracken: "Recovers 20 HP" Brown Rice Ball: "Recovers 40 HP" Campanula: "Recovers 35 HP" Chickweed: "Recovers 40 HP" Dogtooth Violet: "Recovers 45 HP" * Eyedrops: "Recovers Darkness" Fern: "Recovers 25 HP" March Herb: "Recovers 30 HP" Medicinal Herb: "Recovers 50 HP" Mtn.

(Though this item can be used outside of battle; I would recomend using it when you are in battle as Status Abnormalities are only affective in battle. I would use Saxifrage outside of battle instead of Saints remedey. However if Saint remedy is your last resort then by all means use it.)

You've gotta be kidding! Are you sure they're going steady?" Crowd: "What? huh?!" Boy: "Come on! You don't have to go and fip out over it! Boy, you sure are clued out when it comes to noticing stuff like that. One look at them and it's so obvious..." Kururugi: "Do you really think so?" Boy: "Yeah... like another obvious couple..." Kururugi: "What?!? Tomokato and Momo-chan too?!" Crowd: "Huh?" Boy: "Chill out!! Would you quit making a scene about it you big doofus!!" Kururugi: "It's just that they're still only in Junior High." Boy: "Get real would ya? Already in Junior High is more like it. It's hardly unusual. There are alot of guys who already have girlfriends. Like Sekai ....and there's Akira... and Shiyan... oh and Takuya! Kururugi: "Even Takuya?" Boy: "What you didn't know?" Kururugi: "No... it's news to me... *Sigh* Man, what a shocker this has been. And I thought I was Takuya's good friend." Boy: "Hmm... I guess he didn't want to make you feel bad." Kururugi: "What are you saying?" Boy: "You know. You don't have a girl yet!" Kururugi: "Hmm?" Boy: "Hehahahahah! You sure blush easily Kururugi! Heh heh! Bus Driver: "Next stop: Kururugi Shrine, Kururugi Shrine. Please ring the bell if you want to get off." Boy: "This is our stop." *Rings bell* *Kururugi Shrine* (Crowd outside celebrating the Doll Festival) Tenage Girl: "So... who's name did you right on the doll?" Boy: "Like I'm gonna tell ya!" Woman: "You write a persons name on the doll, see? Then you'll be able to see them." Girl: "Ahhh!! It's like magic mommy!" *Kururugi gets off bus and runs up shrine steps* Kururugi: (Aww man, I knew I was gonna be late!) "Sorry I'm late dad. I didn't mean to keep you waiting..." Dad: "You know this is the Doll Festival of Wishes." Kururugi: Yeah, but my homeroom class went way overtime. I'll get changed and come right back. Dad: "No hold on." Kururugi: "Huh?" Dad: "I can handle things here please go to the storehouse and get some more amulets." Kururugi: Let's see... I think we put the box of amulets somewhere in the back last year. I wish I'd stopped to get a flashlight. *Floor breaks* AHH AHH AHHH!!!! Ow this place is dangerous! The floors totally rotten! *Sigh* And so's my luck today... I'll get dad to fix it later. *Falls through the floor* AAHHHH!!!!! *(END CUT SCENE)* (After falling through the time slip) Kururugi: "Where am I? Why am I in the forest? I was just in the warehouse. I must have fallen through a hole. Where's my house? I have to get ready for the festival. This is weird. I dont know this place. Father... Please answer me. Mom! Dad! Why won't you answer me? Where is everyone?" *Move to next place* Kururugi: "No one's here. How could that be? Thats right, my cell! I'll call the house with my cell phone." *Cell phone beeps* "...I can't get through!" *Tries again same result* "I can't get through! I'm outside but there's no signal. I wonder why?" *Move to next place* Kururugi: "Oh, there's some people there. Maybe if I talk to them, they could tell me where I am... Good. Then I can go home. Huh? Kimonos? Why are they wearing kimonos?" Gosuke: "There it is!" Kururugi: "What?" Tagohei: "There it is!" Kururugi: "What did you find? Why are you carrying a weapon?" Yone: "Careful! It's a demon!" Kururugi: "What? A demon? What are you talking..." Gosuke: "Demon, where have you taken my daughter?" Kururugi: "Wait. I just..." Tagohei: "What are you saying now?" Yone: "Alright, let's catch it. Get it!" Gosuke: "Catch it and get my daughter back!" Kururugi: "These guys are weird. What's going on?" Gosuke: "Don't let it get away. Catch it!" Yone: "Yes, don't let it get away!" Kururugi: "Get away! Stop it! I need to run away!" *Next area* Kururugi: "I think they're gone. But what's happening? I don't understand what's going on. Where's my house?" *Strange noise* "Huh? Was that them?" *Rustling in the bushes* "Is this a joke? A demon now?!" Demon: "Heheheh!! I thought I smelled something tasty. It's a human! I was just getting hungry. How conveneint!" Kururugi: "What?! What are you? Don't come near me!" Demon: "Ha ha ha! You think you can run away from me? Heheheheehah!" Kururugi: "No!" Demon: "I'm gonna eat you! Roar! Ha ha ha ha!" Kururugi: "Damn, I'm gonna get eaten in this place." Demon: "Blaghahaha! Hee hee hee hee hee!" *BLINDING LIGHT!!!* Kururugi: "... What happened to me? Am I dead?" Inuyasha: "Hey, are you awake yet?" Kururugi: "Who's that? I'm alive! What are you? Dog ears?" Inuyasha: "Hey, wait a minute. What are you scared of? It's not like I'm gonna eat you. Don't run away." Kururugi: "But you have dog ears and fangs. I'm scared. Don't come near me!" Inuyasha: "Don't you get it? Nevermind, you were great! What kind of technique was that? You beat that demon by shining that light on him." Kururugi: "Technique? Demon? That's right. I was being chased by a demon. And then that light..." Inuyasha: "Hey, your clothes look like Kagome's clothes. You came from 'the present' didn't you?" Kururugi: "Do you know where I came from? Please tell me how I can get back. Huh, the present?" Inuyasha: "Yeah." Kururugi: "What do you mean?" Inuyasha: " The present... you know, The present!" Kururugi: "Wait. Please, help me understand." Inuyasha: "What a hassle! Come on, follow me. If you ask Kagome, she could probably explain things." Kururugi: "Who's Kagome?" Inuyasha: "Kaede's vilage is just ahead. Come on now." Kururugi: (I'm a little scared. But I guess I should go. There might be somone that knows me there.) *Moves to next area.* Inuyasha: "Hey, wait! There's a strange smell. I think that demon's buddies are around." Kururugi: "What?" Inuyasha: "The smell of demons is coming from that purple light." Kururugi: "What should I do?" Inuyasha: "What are you talking about? Let's go after 'em!! It should be easy if you use the red light again. Hey, here they come!" *After Battle* Inuyasha: "Those small demons are no match. Hey, why didn't you use that last move again?" Kururugi: "I didn't know how to." Inuyasha: "You're lame." Kururugi: "But I don't know what to do." Myoga: "I see. That move came from his subconscious. He was so afraid to die, he did it subconsciously." Kururugi: "Who is that?" Inuyasha: "It's just Myoga." Kururugi: "What a small person. Is he a demon too?" Myoga: "Yes. I am Inuyasha's personal bodyguard. My name is Myoga." Inuyasha: "How can you say you're my bodyguard, when you run away at the tiniest sign of danger?" Myoga: "Never mind that. I can still sense demons around us. This boy's power has not yet been awakened. We have to be careful." Inuyasha: "You're right. I can still smell the demons too." Kururugi: "What should I do?" Myoga: "You have to fight hard and make sure you don't slow Inuyasha down. We're getting close to Kaede's Village. Well, Inuyasha, I'm going ahead. Be careful." Inuyasha: "Hey Myoga! Wait! Damn, he's run off again. The demons around here are pathetic. Let's get going." Kururugi: "Okay" ---Kururugi Girl--- (After falling through the time slip) Kururugi: "Where am I? Is this the forest? I was just in the warehouse. I must have fallen through a hole. Where's my house? I have to get ready for the festival. This is weird. I don't know this place. Where's my house? Father... Please answer me. Mom! Dad! Why won't you answer me? Where is everyone? Everyone..." *Move to next place* Kururugi: "No one's here. How could that be? That's right, my cell! I'll call the house with my cell phone." *Phone beeps* "... I can't get through!" *Phone beeps again* " I can't get through! Im outside but there's no signal. That's weird." *Move to next place* Kururugi: "Oh, theres some people there. Maybe if I talk to them they can tell me where I am... Good. Then I can go home. Huh? Kimonos? Why are they wearing kimonos? {{{{-----Glitches/ Cheats------}}}} If you find another glitch or have a correction for me look under the contact info section. This is the one I warned about in the Techniques section under Shippo's Flee technique. Now this could have been the result of my PS2's overheating due to the 14 hours of this game I played straight one day... But... I've found that when trying to use Shippo's Flee or just plain running from battle (if the escape is successful) sometimes the screen with go black. Your character will flash on the screen along with your Tag-along and then the screen will go black. After about 20 seconds the area's music will start to play but the image will never show. If you try pressing buttons nothing happens. I had to reset my PS2 much to my dismay. {{{{-----Copyright Info------}}}} Copyright 2004 Gilberto Perez This FAQ may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.
