Ninja Gaiden 3 tips and boss battle guide

Day 6


In his initial form, Epigonos is essentially a mirror of Hyabusa. Approach him how you would the Regent of the Mask; dodge his attacks, then punish his whiffs. In his secondary form, he becomes much more powerful—he also has access to a variety of weapons, including the Eclipse Scythe and Dragon’s Claw.

As always, be ready to slide dodge whenever he starts glowing red, indicating an unblockable grab attack. His scythe has HUGE range, so stay clear of it when possible. Again, wait for him to attack and miss, then punish.

Master Ninja notes: Don’t bother trying to attack while he’s got his scythe out. That sucker is nasty. Wait for him to switch to the Dragon Sword or Dragon’s Claw.

LOA Chairman Walking Form

Robot dinosaur part two. One hand shoots flames (slide dodge to avoid them) while the other emits electric fields when it slams into the ground. This thing also shoots missiles from its back, but those won’t be much threat so long as you stay close to its body. Attack its flamethrower hand a bunch of times while dodging its other attacks. It’ll get pissed and slam its other hand into the ground—once it’s temporarily disabled, cut that one a bunch of times, too. Repeat this until the boss transforms into its flying form.

This is a bit trickier. It drops a ton of bombs, whose landing areas are indicated by glowing circles. Don’t stand in those. Slide to dodge missile barrages, and shoot it with as many arrows as you safely can while avoiding projectiles. It’ll occasionally stop, open its mouth, and shoot lasers. Don’t bother trying to slide dodge, as the lasers are thinly spaced. Instead, just walk between them when the trajectory is shown.

Its final stage is a tank-like vehicle. Shoot arrows at the wheels until they’re destroyed (be sure to dodge the charge attack). When it opens its mouth to shoot lasers, move between the wheels and slide underneath the mech to activate the finishing prompt.

Master Ninja notes: This is a long battle, which sucks considering Ryu will die from just one or two attacks in nearly any of the boss’s forms. Be patient and anticipate its abilities.

Regent of the Mask

Ugh, again? Same strategy as the last two times you’ve fought him. Dodge his attacks, punish with a few of your own, get out, repeat.

Master Ninja notes: Don’t suck.

    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...
