===============================================================================

06.) Gameplay Basics..................................[NUCBASICS]

===============================================================================

Health - This is simple enough. It hits zero and you're toast, although as your
         Health goes down, you can harness Kyuubi's (The Nine-Tailed Fox's)
         power. You can use Virtue to increase your Health under Abilities
         in the Start Menu

Stamnia - Focusing and restoring your Chakra takes up your Stamnia, but it can
          be replenished by finding and picking up blue orbs. You can use
          Virtue to increase your Stamina under Abilities in the Start Menu

Kyuubi (Nine-Tailed Fox) Gauge - This bar will grow redder and redder as you
                                 combo and smack around your enemies. When your
                                 Health gets low enough, you can press Circle
                                 and Triangle together to become Kyuubi Naruto.
                                 Your stamina will be unlimited, so jutsu your
                                 little heart out.

Virtue - This is earned for defeating enemies and complete various missions.
         Collect the yellow Virtue Orbs after an enemy dies to earn Virtue.
         Virtue is used to purchase Skill Chips

Skill Chips - These are used to raise your stats and give your other abilities.
              We will discuss these in a later section of this guide.

Treasure Hunting - Always search each level for treasure chests, as good things
                   come to those that search. I included this under the basics
                   as free stuff is always a good thing

           this mission easier by dispatching enemies in one to two hits

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +620, Medicine C x5



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 005: Sensei for a Day

RANK: C

OBJECTIVE: Due to the number of incidents recently, many Academy instructors
           are busy with missions. Graduates are being sought to fill in while
           the teachers are out and help train the younger students. You have
           four minutes to locate twelve charms while not letting Konohamaru
           bite the big one. I would suggest running after said charms,
           covering the brat when needed. Looking head on from the entrance,
           this tends to be the quicker of paths:
           Turn west and find the Tiger Charm on the wall. Turn north and go
           straight to the Dog Charm, and then go east to get the Dragon Charm.
           Go west young Naruto and get the Boar Charm off the stump, following
           the ramp afterwards to get the Rabbit Charm. The Snake Charm is on
           the ground to the north. Now heading east, you will find the Rat
           Charm up in a tree and the Monkey Charm on a stump just east of the
           Rat Charm. Head south from here to find the Ox Charm in a crevice
           in the wall. Follow the northeast path towards the entrance finding
           the Rooster and Horse Charms along said path. Find the island with
           a ninja on it and get the Sheep Charm. This should do it, so head
           back to the entrance. Here Neji is waiting to spring a trap on you.

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: NEJI HYUUGA

SKILLS: Eight Trigrams Palm Rotation (Deals good damage if you are close enough
        to be caught in it and lessens damage to himself if you attack him)
        Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms (Deals pretty heavy damage)
        Kunais and Chakra-infused shuriken (Just keep moving)

The best strategy is to play keep away from him, by bombarding him with your
weapons. He is a Taijutsu user, so his moves have to be close range.

*******************************************************************************

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +700, Skill Chip: Orb Absorb


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXTRA MISSION: Kakashi's Special Drill

Head to the red dot, but save first as there are a few battles ahead of us

                        Wind Shurikens (Long range weaponry)

ALLY: Shikamaru Nara (Make the best of his Shadow Possession Jutsu!! ^^)

Take out whoever is more annoying to you, and just as their fighting styles
suggest, counter them by doing the opposite. Play long range with Choji and
play straight up brawler with Sasuke

*******************************************************************************

BOSSES: SHIKAMARU NARA & SASUKE UCHIHA

SASUKE UCHIHA'S SKILLS: Same as before, only it seems in this one, he will
                        pound the ground with an airbourne Chidori
SHIKAMARU NARA'S SKILLS: Balloons (Extends the range of his Shadow Possession)
                         Paper Bombs (Time delayed exploding pieces of paper)
                         Trap Kunai (Ground based kunai)
                         Shadow Possession Jutsu (Traps and damages)

what you're up against with Sasuke, but this time he's pissed and tends to
attack more relentlessly

           you. Go to each town and red dot, calling on Kakshi-sensei to blow

           Boss Man (er... boy)!!

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: SASUKE UCHIHA

SKILLS: Fire Style: Phoenix Flower Jutsu
        Fire Style: Dragon Flame Bombs
        Chidori
        Wind Shurikens
        Lion Combo

Try mid to long range, seeing as the Lion Combo is not a good thing. The one
upside to it is to use the Substitution Jutsu (pressing X in time with an
opponent's strike), appear behind him, and go crazy.

*******************************************************************************

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +1200, Skill Chip: Perfect Strike


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 010: The Gambler's Fallacy

           head for the red dot. Fight the monkeys (Man, do they move >.>) and

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: GRAY MONKEY

SKILLS: Rock Tossing
        Poo Shooter

Go straight for the boss monkey and Twin-Edge Kunai him. He'll fall down, which
means charge a Rasengan and let him have it. If you picked Neji, throw him into
the pain that is Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms. If for some reason you didn't
kill the flea-ridden beast, he'll retreat. You'll just have to track him down
and finish what you started, now won't you??

*******************************************************************************

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +1300, Skill Plate: Toad


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXTRA MISSION: Sasuke Pursuit

Head for the red dot and meet up with Sakura. She is, of course, looking for
Sasuke. Let's help her and look for treasure all at the same time.

              pillars, watch the shadows on the ground. Follow the one that is
              not like the others

Save at the floating scroll, get the treasure chest off to the right, and head
to the next area. There are two chests in this area and stay out of the shadows
cause of falling boulders. Save, because you're about to throw down with one
mean medic ninja

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: KABUTO YAKUSHI

SKILLS: Mystical Palm Jutsu
        Kunai Throw

He'll start the battle by hanging back and healing himself. Watch out for an
underground technique, if you get too close. Hang back though, and he'll start
with the healing himself again. Rasangen and weapon him to death. This seems
to work for me

*******************************************************************************


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 011: Punishment

RANK: C

OBJECTIVE: Sasuke has been confined at home for his dangerous behavior. Naruto
           must take a mission as punishment. Transport a shipment of precious
           metal from the Hidden Leaf Village to Tanzaku Town. This is another
           cart mission, which means weapons, weapons, weapons. They seem to be
           the easiest and quickest way to deal with these annoying missions

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +1500, Skill Chip: Empty Chip 2


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXTRA MISSION: SASUKE'S CHALLENGE

Choose to ask around. Sakura will tell you Sasuke is itching for ANOTHER fight.
Head to the hills and let the battle begin

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: SASUKE UCHIHA

SKILLS: Mission 009

He starts things off with a Chidori. How surprising... Weapons are more or less
useless in this battle, so go with the Shadow Clones and the Rasengan for the
win. Ok, in some cases, you will have to fight Curse Mark Sasuke. He's
basically the same, only quite a bit stronger. I would suggest using Kyuubi
Naruto if you get this fight.

*******************************************************************************


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 012: National Treasure

RANK: C

OBJECTIVE: Madame Shijimi, wife of the Land of Fire's leader, has a request for
           Naruto. Thieves are after a national treasure, a collection of jars
           with historic value. Go to the Villa where the jars are kept and
           serve as security. Use Shikamaru's Shadow Possession and Naruto's 
           Shadow Clones to your advantage. The doors can take some damage, but
           like you, the mission is over if the doors reach zero energy.

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +1600, Skill Plate: Spiral


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 013: Oil Fielder

RANK: C

OBJECTIVE: Transport oil from the Hidden Leaf Village to Tanzaku Town and
           deliver it to the waiting Trader. The oil is highly flammable, so be
           sure to watch out for fire during battle. You can handle a cart
           mission by now, right?? Good, cause this is one of them.

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +1700, Dual B x3


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 014: Prisoner Escort II

RANK: C

OBJECTIVE: A wanted ninja has been captured in Border Town. Take the prisoner
           into custody and escort him to the Hidden Leaf Village. It's highly
           likely that the prisoner's comrades will attack, so stay on the
           alert. Fight off his lackies in a four battle set.

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2000, Medicine A x3


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 015: Trouble in the Sand

RANK: A

OBJECTIVE:  There has been recent unrest in the Sand. Infiltrate Sand Castle
            near the Hidden Sand Village, meet up with your contact inside, and
            investigate the Sand's activity. Shikamaru will accompany you. The
            first trail to the Castle is a long one. Find the treasures, break
            the wall before you, and follow the Hidden Leaf post into the next
            area. The roof area is a straightforward path to the next area. In
            here, jump the platforms. Watch out for traps and the tricky chests
            in this area. Head out the window and into the next area. Just
            collect the treasures here and head up the stairs. Save and get
            ready for a cranky Jinchuriki.

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: GAARA OF THE SAND

SKILLS: Sand Shurikens
        Sand Clones
        Sand Wall
        Sand Coffin

This guy is a defensive warrior, through and through. I'm not going to beat
around the bush and just tell you to let you smack you down. This way you can
turn into Kyuubi Naruto and beat him quickly into submission

*******************************************************************************

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2100, Skill Chip: Stun Resist Up
 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXTRA MISSION: HINATA'S HELPER

Leave the Leaf Village to the highlighted locale. After watching Hinata and
Naruto, head to Flowermoon Village. Save, seeing as a boss is waiting at the
end

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: GIANT

SKILLS: Rock Wave (Creates a barrier all around him to damage)
        Club Swing (Close physical attack)
        Summon Lightning (Calls ligtning beams that will track, so run!! He'll
                          turn blue, but you can punch him out of it. This
                          puts you in his attack range however)
        Home Run Swing (Knocks you in the air and hits you on the way down)
        

Ninjutsu is the way to go on this one, as far as I'm concerned.

*******************************************************************************


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 016: This Time is for Real

RANK: B

OBJECTIVE:  Madame Shijimi has sent another request. Apparently, she never paid
            the thieves she hired before, and they are none too pleased. Hurry
            to the Village and protect her storehouse from the thieves. Another
            'Protect the Doors' mission, but no weapons as they hurt the doors.

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2300, Skill Chip: New Swimsuit


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 017: The Stuntman

RANK: D

OBJECTIVE:  There has been a request from a TV station filming an action drama
            to dispatch two ninja as stuntmen. Meet up with the other ninja at
            the studio and help with the filming. Ignore the bad guys and pay
            attention to the treasures and cut scenes. Make your way to the
            machine in back. Boss fight time!! (Note: Neji and his Eight
            Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms will be much help on this boss fight)

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: GIANT MANTIS x2

SKILLS: A Slash with it's front limbs
        Shockwave Slash (A projectile by slashing it's front limbs)
        Whirlwinds
        A Body Slam-like attack after jumping up

Fire element weaponry (which you should have a few to choose from by now) and
Neji are the key to taking these overgrown garden bugs out. Do not stay close
for long and watch out for the long range stuff, but it's easy to dodge once
you see it coming. That means trying to keep them in your sights (or should
I say camera) at all times

*******************************************************************************

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2200, Skill Plate: Nine-Tails
 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 018: Prisoner Escort III

RANK: B

OBJECTIVE: A wanted ninja has been captured in Border Town. Take the prisoner
           into custody and escort him to the Hidden Leaf Village. Orochimaru's
           men have been trying to abduct many prisoners lately. Be careful.
           Bear your fangs for this mission with whatever two-man cell you
           like best and prepare for one of the tougher cargo missions

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2500, Dual Ax3

NOTE: Now might be a good time to practice your skills and toughen up your
      character. The end is near...


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 019: Closed for Business

RANK: C

OBJECTIVE: Emporium Karin hasn't been open for some time now. Since Naruto has
           already saved the shop twice, we would like him to check out the
           situation and see if a new problem has occurred. Get your teammates,
           head to the store, and the out to your destination. These place is
           pretty cut and dry, so follow the Hidden Leaf signs to navigate.
           There will be a rock to bust up, follow the path beyond it, and make
           your way home

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2600, Skill Chip: Empty Chip 3


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 020: Mass Disappearances

RANK: S

OBJECTIVE: The villagers of Wind Gate have suddenly vanished. Orochimaru may
           have taken over the village for his nefarious experiments. Hurry
           there with Neji to find the villagers and stop the experiments. Look
           for the treasure chests, avoiding the greenish fog stuff. As always,
           follow the Hidden Leaf signs, as this game doesn't allow for a big
           freedom of movement. Save after making your way to the roof and
           prepare to exchange blows with a fellow Jinchuriki

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: GAARA OF THE SAND

SKILLS: Same as Mission 015

Use the same strategies as before with maybe a little spamming of Neji's Eight
Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms. Hold onto your hats folks, cause after him, comes
Round 2. Yay...

*******************************************************************************

BOSS : KABUTO YAKUSHI

SKILLS: Same as the Sasuke Pursuit mission, only with a Sand Clone Jutsu

Use your most potent moves in your (and your teammates) arsenal to take Mr.
Four Eyes out

*******************************************************************************

ROUND ONE REWARD: Virtue +2700, Skill Chip: Seal Weaken


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 021: The Final Battle

RANK: S

OBJECTIVE: The Anbu pursued Kabuto and located Orochimaru's hideout. However,
           green mist has broken out near the village, and damage is already
           spreading. Take over Orochimaru's hideout and bring an end to this
           dreadful plot!! The way through this level is pretty cut and dry,
           except for one split path that goes forward and to your left. I
           say go straight first and get all the treasures your grubby, little
           mitts can handle. After handling this area, there should be another
           fork in the road. Go left if you just want to save and fight the
           bosses, or go right if you want more treasure. Regardless, save (as
           this is the finale) and go forth, receiving Kakashi AND Sasuke. I,
           myself would save Kakshi for the end as he's your powerhouse

*******************************************************************************

BOSSES: KABUTO YAKUSHI & THE GIANT

SKILLS: Same as in your last battles with the two

First order of business, Rasengan every cyrstal in the place, as the enemies
will respawn AND heal endlessly if you don't. You should know how these two
throw down, so have at them!!

*******************************************************************************

Follow the path and Karin has come to save the day. Buy plenty of Health items
and head on down the path. Yes, that's a scroll for saving for what is really
the last battle.

*******************************************************************************

BOSS: OROCHIMARU

SKILLS: Kunai Throw
        Shadow Stalker (a slithering slide across the battle area)
        Summon Tornados (A launcher to send you flying into combos)
        Tongue Lashing (Uses this for a mid-range damaging technique)


The guy definitely has speed on his side. I would suggest using weapons that
knock down (Like Twin-Edged Kunai and Fire Kunai), pummeling him with Shadow
Clones, and chargin Rasengan right as he starts to get up. Charge too long and
he will bolt away. It may be just me, but I do believe he gets faster as his
health drops. Using Kakashi and Sasuke are okay, but in the end, the well
balanced nature of the main character wins out. Enjoy your Cutscene/Credits/
Cutscene combo, as you have definitely earned it.

*******************************************************************************

GAME COMPLETE REWARDS: Skill Plate: Shuriken, Increased Health/Stamnia in your
                       New Game Plus, Boss Fights at your choosing, and Kakashi
                       Hatake plus Gaara of the Sand as teammates in missions
