Ninja Gaiden 3 tips and boss battle guide

Day 2

IDE-1011 Manta Helicopter

For some reason the pilot of this airship thinks that ramming it into Ryu instead of using its many guns and missiles is a valid option. Slide dodge its dives, and shoot arrows at the rocket launchers under the wings. Try not to meander into the middle of the platform. Follow the prompts—when you’re on the wing and facing the turret, slide from side to side then attack the turret once it overheats. Repeat the process. Fuuuun!

Master Ninja notes:

Definitely be sure to dodge those missiles, as they will end you pretty quickly. When you have to fend off against jetpack troopers, try and dispatch them via bow and arrow while they’re airborne—if they land, their flamethrower attacks will likely result in barbequed ninja.

Day 3


So…uh…Gigantosaurus? Really? Robo T-Rex isn’t exactly a friendly dino. He mainly runs around with his head down like a big dummy before slamming it straight into the ground. Give it a few slashes while it’s down, then slide away—typically it uses a tail swipe attack when it gets back up, and you don’t want to get caught by that. After you damage it enough, its body will turn to metal and you’ll have to repeat the same processes while attacking it’s giant, stupid face. Only do this when it’s on the ground, though, as it has a nasty bite attack and can even shoot some kind of damage-dealing roar. Repeat until dead.

Master Ninja notes:

Don’t even bother trying to attack this thing until it’s on the ground. Getting hit just once or twice means game over.

Regent of the Mask

This is basically the same fight as the last time, except he has a few new moves: a five-hit melee combo, and an unblockable (and very lethal) jumping grab attack.

Master Ninja notes:

He hits harder.

    You guys are really bad,you all are hating on this game without any reason,soon they will release a new DLC that includes 2 new weapons (And i hope that they will add more weapons with the time especially my favorite weapon the Vigoorian Flail),This game is still not easy even if played on the Master Ninja Difficulty and if you compared it to NG2 it is easier since they have added "Steel and Bone"Tactic,I liked the game so much between the gameplay,story,how to cut someone off,but not only that,you can do CRASH THEM TOO!!!,I rated the game and gave it 10 out of 10,it deserves,And i haven't played the online yet due to the problem of the online pass it doesn't work but they will fix it...

    So you're making a guide to a game that you guys gave a 3 to?

    I came her to make the same remark... except that I suspect Tecmo or somebody is in fact paying them to put these guides up. Otherwise, why would they bother?

    I always crack up whenever I see a guide for a game that the site bashed shamelessly XD "Yeah! it fucking sucks!... But we cal help you out if you were stupid enough to buy it anyway..."
  • SuwaidiSama - March 24, 2012 6:25 a.m.

    Just tell me why you are hating this game?,you are hating it because you play with just one weapon for all of the time?,you are hating it due to the story of this game?,And your top mistake when you call us "stupids enough" if we bought it,all what i understand from you is that you bought it and played it too,that's all what i understand.

    Then your understanding is pretty limited... I don't need to buy the game to tell it's crap, it shows in the gameplay videos and in the details given on reviews. Also, you misunderstand "hate" with making fun of a company that gives guides to a game they rated pretty poorly. If you actually liked it, then hey, good for you, but don't be all whiny and bitchy because others don't happen to share your opinion.
  • SuwaidiSama - March 26, 2012 4 a.m.

    You don't have played this game and you already judged it,I am not hating you or anything because you hate NG3 lol,If i hated you for just a game i will be like a chill dude,you too,you should not misunderstand me,It does not mean that i don't like you,I want to tell you that you just should try it before judging on this game,not only NG3,all the games in this world,Believe me that this game have a bad rating due to some users but i purly give it a 10\10 rating,If i said something bad to you and made feel like a "hater" then i am very sorry i didn't mean to...
