Although similar in a lot of ways to the Resident Evil Series, this game has a lot of uniqueness in its respect. The bosses for the game are quite easy, but some opponents need strategy to be able to win. I now present to you my Onimusha: Warlords Boss FAQ. Iíll be dividing the entire guide into the bosses and Iíll give strategies for each and everyone of them. I hope these can you out in your game and those who want to send their own strategies, feel free to do so. Letís begin. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= CONTENTS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- I. Updates/Revisions II. Boss Battle Overview III. Boss #1: Big Ogre Demon IV. Boss #2: Marcellus V. Mini-Boss: Stealth Demon VI. Boss #3: Doppelganger VII. Boss #4: Queen Bee/Wasp VIII. Boss #5: Marcellus IX. FINAL BOSS: Fortinbras X. Credits/Acknowledgements -=-=-=-=-=-=- E-MAIL POLICY =-=-=-=-=-=-= Within the past months, Iíve been receiving such a great number e-mails and some of them are quite annoying (just 2 of them though). So, I decided to put up this e-mail policy as a guide for you if you want to send an e-mail to me. Here are the things that you must do/must not do in sending an e-mail regarding this guide and any of my other guides: Doís ---- 1. Send me a question, which cannot be found on my guide. I will be more that happy to help you. 2. Try to be specific in order for me to understand what youíre trying to ask me. 3. You can send in your questions/other e-mails in text or HTML format. No executables. 4. Check first the latest version of the guide before sending questions, contributions, etc. If you use later versions, the answer/s to your questions might have been answered already and will be most likely to be ignored. Check GameFAQs.com or vgstrategies.about.com for the latest updates. 5. If I happen to forget you, just e-mail me nicely and Iíll respond to you ASAP. Doníts ------ 1. Donít send any questions that can be answered from my guide. And donít be persistent in doing so. 2. Donít send nonsense e-mails like ďI want to marry you!Ē ďCan you buy me this or that?Ē etc. 3. Donít say bad words. F$#k Y%u! and the likes. 4. And, donít send Chain letters! Please! 5. Donít send executable files (.exe, .com) as an attachment. I donít want any Trojans wandering around. 6. No spamming (repeated messages). If you do any one of the ďDonítsĒ, your e-mail will be ignored then deleted. Period. Virus Info ---------- There are still some people who are infected with the Snow White virus. You may receive an e-mail that is from email@example.com thatís all about Snow White and the seven dwarves. Hereís what you can do to check if you are infected or not. Now, send a mail to yourself. This may sound crazy, but it works. If you receive another e-mail, which has the snow White virus, at the same time or a little later than the ones you send to yourself, it means that you are probably infected with the virus. To confirm this, check the IP Address and the STMP server indicated in the virus e-mail. Donít worry about infection, as long as you DONíT open the attachment, youíre safe. But, if the IP Address and the STMP server in the virus e-mail is the same as the ones in your e-mail, you are 100% infected. So, run a virus scanner. To prevent any virus from infiltrating, DO NOT open executable file such as (*.exe, *.com, *.scr, *.pif, *.bat) even if theyíre from a trusted friend or a family member. They may not know that they are infected. JPEGs and TXT files are safe. :) -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- UPDATES/REVISIONS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Final Version (Started: July 9, 2001) ------------------------------------- I guess this guide needs to be in its final version already. Thanks for reading the guide. =) - Upgraded to the Final Version - Battle Overview Updated -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= BOSS BATTLE OVERVIEW =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Boss Battles in Onimusha: Warlords are fairly on the average. The battles are in real-time so remember that the enemy wonít wait for you. Some of the enemies can be killed easily and some require cunning and skill. The location of the battles will also affect how you attack and defend. The enemies also vary in techniques and abilities that make this game quite a challenging one. When battling a boss, remember that once you deliver a hard blow or a 100% hit blow, some spirits will be released for you so that you can absorb it for your weapon and magic. Note: Some names are just made up by me. I havenít heard their actual names in the game yet. Iíll update this guide when a new strategy/ies for certain bosses appear. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Boss #1: BIG OGRE DEMON =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Being the first boss in the game, its size is quite intimidating at first. But that size compromises its speed. Location: ========= Your battlefield will be quite broad. You can easily move around the place. Its Attacks: ============ It will swing its huge weapon at you most of the time and some of these swings will render you helpless even if you block. When you deal enough damage, heíll turn red and will begin charging at you. Defense Tips: ============= Because of his slowness, you can easy block all of its attacks (except for the charging attack). You can also evade him and easily go around him to position you for the attack. Beating Tips: ============= At this point in the game, you only have the Thunder Orb with you. At the beginning of the battle, use up all your Thunder Magic. After that, use the thrust attack (Up+R1) and keep on strafing to its left and right. After its charging attack, it will be vulnerable for a short period of time. Hack away and youíll win in no time at all. Donít forget to absorb the extra spirits that appear. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Boss #2: MARCELLUS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- This will be a tough opponent. He has a strong attack and a very good defense (with the shield). Youíll need to be fast in order to beat him. Location: ========= Youíll be at the rooftop of the house and your moving range is quite limited. Go around the edges to lure him before attacking. Take note that you canít see Marcellus if youíre on the other side of the roof. His Attacks: ============ His sword is fortified with Wind Magic. Heíll use it throughout the battle a couple of times so watch out for it. He has a sequence of slashes that will render you helpless for a short period of time. Heís also capable of doing additional damage to you if youíre down on the floor. Defense Tips: ============= Moving around him (at the same time staying a few steps away) will be the most effective way to lessen the damage you receive. His sword attacks have a fairly wide range so strafing isnít applicable most of the time. You can juts block off his attacks though and counter with your own, provided that you act quickly. Beating Tips: ============= The first thing you have to do is to try and remove his shield. You can do this in 2 ways. Either use Thunder Magic on his back or use the Fire Magic at the same time while heís attack (therefore making it a counter move). To be able to beat him more efficiently, try your best to stay behind or beside him so that his shield wonít get in the way of your attacks. If you successfully removed the shield, pummel away with normal slashes or magic, if you have some to spare. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Mini-Boss: STEALTH DEMON =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- This opponent is rather tricky because it can move to another location without being seen. Although it is a mini-boss, youíll encounter these types of demons later in the game. Location: ========= Youíll be in a fairly wide area so that the battle will be fair enough for Kaede. Its Attacks: ============ Itís main arsenal is the stealth ability. It will hide for a while then appear on a different area within the room/dungeon. You can see it though, even if it is in stealth and you can easily following the silhouette of its body. It has 3 kinds of attacks that I know off. First it can slash with sequential sword swipes. Second, it can throw boomerangs if youíre far away. And the most devastating attack is the Hard Slash (after stealth, itíll jump and delivers a killer blow). Defense Tips: ============= As Kaede, you are much faster than the Demon. If it goes into Stealth mode, follow the silhouette on the ground and block if necessary. But then, it would be a lot easier to just evade its attacks by strafing. To avoid the boomerang, just stay close to the demon and the boomerang will fly right by without damaging you. Beating Tips: ============= You can be very aggressive against it. You can attack right after it appears after the Stealth mode. Donít forget to press R1 to automatically lock on to its location so that you can block or attack it when it appears. If you decide to block, you can attack it right after you successfully blocked its attack. Just keep on moving around so that it will be confused a little bit and miss you. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Boss #3: DOPPELGANGER =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= The doppelganger will be just the same as Samanosuke (duh!) except for some attacks and the armor (the doppelganger will wear the weak armor only and will not copy your Holy Armor). He will need a little strategy to defeat. Location: ========= Youíll be in a fairly large area with a rock in the center. Just beware because you might get cornered and get stomped. His Attacks: ============ The Doppelganger will use normal slashes against you. But take note that some of them are very unpredictable. Just when you thought his attacks are over, youíll get slashed the least you knew. He will also have a spirit attack that will damage you if you get hit. Block it and youíll be able to absorb that spirit for your use. Take note that he can also block attacks and strafe from side to side just like good Ďol Samanosuke. Defense Tips: ============= Strafing and Blocking will be the best defense against him. Block his attacks and then follow-up with a counter or move away (or strafe beside him) to prevent damage. Watch out for the slashes. Be very alert. Beating Tips: ============= This is the hard part. Most of the time, your slashes will be blocked by him. He can even block your magic attacks. So, the best way to defeat him is to attack when he is open. While he is attacking, do an attack yourself to counter it with your own slash/magic attack. Thatís the only way. But if youíre skilled and you can go behind him (or just beside him will do) easily, attack him from behind. Donít slash him continuously though as he can counterattack it at some point and donít forget to use magic when you have the chance. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Boss #4: QUEEN BEE/WASP =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= She will be very tough if you donít know what to do. The battle may also take quite a long time to finish because of her distance and speed. She will also have minions that will help her beat you up. Location: ========= Youíll be inside a particular house where there will be a narrow path through the room. Your movement will be very limited due to this and to the minions scattered around. Her Attacks: ============ Because of the fact that she is airborne, her attacks are quite fast but you can easily block them. When you hear her say ďdieĒ, block at once because sheíll charge you. Also, watch out for her minions because they also do a lot of damage to Samanosuke. But most of the time, youíll find her flying around and slashing about. She even slashes her minions. Defense Tips: ============= All of her attacks can easily be blocked. Just be careful of the minions especially in numbers. You can also avoid her charging attack if you are not trapped in a corner by strafing (R1+left/right). Beating Tips: ============= Hereís what I did and I find it really effective. First, go near her and use the Wind Magic. It will stun her and she will go down for a short while. During this time, use the Thunder Magic and hack her away. If she is far away, you can use your Fire Magic also. Just be cautious, as sometimes your Fire Magic will just kill the minions. Normal slash hits will be very hard to accomplish against her. The trick is to evade her attacks, therefore making her defenseless for a very short period of time, then use your normal slashes. If youíre out of Magic, kill the minions and hope for Blue Spirits to fill your magic up. The most important attack here is the Wind Magic, donít forget that. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Boss #5: MARCELLUS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Marcellus is the most warrior-like opponent in the game. He has an awfully big sword and an annoyingly effective shield. Heís also quite big but the downside is that he is a little slow. Location: ========= Youíll be at the main hall of the demon world. The center area is small and circular in shape and the 2 ends of the screen are quite narrow. There will be a medicine near the door where you entered this place. It would be hard to move around, but remember that this goes the same for Marcellus. His Attacks: ============ In the first stage, Marcellus will have a variety of Slashes and sometimes fortifying it with Magic. When youíre down, he can attack you with a Fire Sword. He also still has the shield charge attack, but this time youíll fall off your feet even if you blocked it. In the second stage, where he loses his shield, heíll now have 2 swords to use against you. He can deliver several, fast and very damaging slashes at Samanosuke. Again, he can still use some Magic-fortified attacks just like before. But the main difference now is that Marcellus can move quickly (almost like Teleporting). Defense Tips: ============= Donít worry about his attacks. All of them can be blocked by Samanosuke. But then, quickly get up (by press various buttons quickly) because he might attack you when youíre down. Beating Tips: ============= In the first stage of the fight, you must concentrate on removing that shield at once. The best way to do this is to use your Fire Magic. Just as he begins to attack, press R1 plus Triangle (with the Fire Sword Equipped) to attack him. If you timed it right, he wonít be able to continue his attack and will be stunned for a moment. Do this at least twice more and the shield will be off. After doing this task, youíll have an easier fight. In the second stage, he will be defenseless now so you can attack him anytime, if you are able to reach him. Block his attacks and then attack right after blocking. Use up all your Magic this time as it will be 100% effective. Use the Fire Sword afterwards for Maximum Damage. Now, You can beat Marcellus easily (without using magic) be cornering him at either of the 2 doors. He wonít be able to move for a while and heíll be open to all kinds of attacks. Use the Thrust Attack (R1+Up+Attack) to deal more damage and to stun him. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Final Boss: FORTINBRAS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- As the final boss, Fortinbras has a lot of Hit points to spare. Itíll take you a couple of minutes to beat him using the Bishamon Sword. Here are some strategies that I found effective against Fortinbras. Location: ========= Youíll be in a medium-sized chamber where you can move quite freely in all directions. This will give you a fair fight with Fortinbras. His attacks: ============ Fortinbras has a lot of attacks in his arsenal. He can wave his hand and unleash a strong gust of wind that will push you away from him. Even if you block this attack, youíll still move away a distance. Another attack of Fortinbras (most of the time, he uses it before/after the wind attack) is when he lunges his fists at you, literally pounding Samanosuke. Youíll be out of commission for a while as youíll be stunned by that attack. Blocking will negate this attack. Also, you can avoid this one if youíre fast or lucky. If youíre right in front of him (when you push forward until you touch him), his arms will extended over Samanosuke and will evidently miss. Another attack would be the Pinkish Laser beams that follow you and blasts a deadly beam to the ground. These lasers will come in groups and it will be hard to avoid if youíre very slow. The cue here is when you see the laserís reflection on the ground, press the Attack Stance Button (R1) and move away from the lasers. Hereís another attack. The Eye Beams. This time, the beams will come from Fortinbrasí eyes and it is aimed directly at Samanosuke. If you donít move, youíre swiss chess. The trick here is to do the Attacking Stance and tap right or left to move away from the path of the laser. Just be careful because most of the time, he blasts laser beams continuously. The number of beams are at random though. One of the most annoying attacks of Fortinbras is the Fire Breath. Heíll unleash his fiery breath all over the area so it would be best to stay as far as you can. Sometimes, you need to strafe to the left or right to avoid the flame. This attack cannot be blocked. And the most deadly attack of Fortinbras, the Death Grip. During this time, you have to press all the buttons as many times as you can and as fast as you can. If youíre slow, Fortinbras will toast Samanosuke and the game will be Over (unless you have a Talisman). If you managed to escape, attack him during this weakened state. Just remember that he can only use this attack when youíre close to him. General Beating Tips: ===================== Fortinbras will take a lot of slashes before it dies. But the best way to attack him is to attack his body (not the snake-like body/tail). To make it easier to attack the body (especially without magic), hack away the tail and eventually, his body will fall to the ground making him very vulnerable for the moment. Itís then time to use your most powerful attack during this time. Note: After attacking him when his body is on the ground, youíll be able to absorb some spirits after he recovers. Defense Tips: ============= 2 or 3 Medicines will be enough for you to survive this battle. A Talisman will also be great incase you forgot to heal and got killed. All in all, you can block some of his moves and easily evade the rest of the attacks. Also, your Soul Absorber may not be useful because it canít reach his body when his upright. Beating Tip #1: =============== If you have the Bishamon Sword, just hack his tail until his body falls down. During his weakened state, use the Triangle Button to attack his body. Keep on doing this until he dies. If youíre fast enough, Fortinbras might not even have the opportunity to attack. Beating Tip #2: =============== If you donít have the Bishamon Sword, you can definitely rely on your Magic. First, use the Fire Sword to attack his tail (because I noticed that it is the strongest sword among the 3) until his body goes down to the ground. This time, use your Thunder Magic (Triangle Button with Thunder Sword) and youíll see Samanosuke beat up Fortinbras. When Fortinbras recovers, absorb the spirits and repeat the process again. After using the Thunder Magic, use the Fire and then finally, the Wind Magic. Donít forget to use Magic only when his body is down (except for the Wind and Fire Magic which can reach his body) because youíll be able to deal much more damage. If youíre out of magic, use the Fire Sword and slash Fortinbras to oblivion. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= CREDITS/ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- - Thanks to Capcom for bringing a Resident Evil type (but very very unique) game for the Playstation 2. - Thanks to the readers of this FAQ.
