gold per hit. You will fight three to five enemies. By the time
you win, you will gain between 20,000 to 35,000 gold. You can

the desired amount of money or experience. You can also try the
other missions in that area if desired. Note: Every time you complete
a level, the next time you play it the amount of money and experience
you get decreases.

Angelic Twirl, pause for moment, then press B. This will
do a powerful fire move.
Hint: Ivy: Easy wins:
Go near the edge of the stage (with your back facing
it) and have your opponent follow you. Use Primal Dominance (A
+ G) for instant ring outs. If your opposition does not
fall off but is close to the edge (this time with his/her back
facing it), use Rising Mind Shatter (Up + K) to
send them off.
Hint: Kilik: Easy wins:
In weapon master mode, choose either the Kunloon Bamboo
Rod or Jingu Rod. Only use horizontal attacks in the battle. When
you have hit your opponent on the ground, run towards them. Even
when you reach them, keep running forward. When your opponent
starts to get up, press A while still holding Forward.
This will catch your opponent off-guard almost every time, and
will keep hitting them to the ground. Keep repeating this and
they will never have a chance to hit you.
Hint: Link: Easy wins:

in weapon master mode for an automatic win.

regular A + K.
Hint: Necrid: Easy ring outs:
The following combo allows Necrid to ring out an opponent
from two distances. While rising, press K(2). The first
Kick can score a ring out if your opponent is extremely close
to the edge of the stage. The second kick can ring out the opponent

off if you use the grab where he hits them multiple times with

Select Seung Mina and equip her ultimate weapon, the
Hraesvelgr. While in battle, you can regain lots of health quickly
with this weapon if you do her spinning staff attack. Whether
it hits the opponent or not, you will gain health. Note: If you

effective and fast.
Hint: Taki: Strong kick combo:
When you get hit first, press L + R +
Up + X (Kick) together in any position. You will
do a kick combo. Note: You have to get close to your opponent.
Hint: Taki: Hidden moves:

least two moves that are not on your command list. The first one
is Down, B. Taki will move her hands around until

at the opponent, then press Y and continue this for an
easy ring out. This will cut the time to completing weapon master
mode in half.
Hint: Voldo: Easy wins:
When in a level with no walls, you can have an easy
kill. As soon as the battle begins hold the Analog-stick
towards your opponent to run. When you are close enough to hit
him, tap Y. This will elbow your opponent, and make him
fly back. Keep running towards him and elbowing him until he flies
off the ring.
Hint: Yoshimitsu: Easy wins:
Use either of his frontal throws (BG or AG)
and constantly use them until the enemy is defeated. This is especially
useful for the subchapter dungeon with all of the Berzerker enemies,
as most of them are at half health.
Hint: Yoshimitsu: Secret moves:
Tap Analog-stick Right(2) and quickly press
BA. He will lunge his elbow out toward the opponent. When
this hits with a move counter, hold all of the buttons used. Note:
You can also do the move while standing.

A + K). During that, press A rapidly and
it will hit your opponent four more times. Note: You will lose
life, and it also works with Turning Suicide.
Hint: Yoshimitsu: Slice through opponent:
You must time this move correctly before an enemy attack.
Get close to your enemy, and before he or she attacks you, perform
Ninja Blade Rush (Y, B) quickly. You will slice
directly through your opponent. It is not that powerful, but looks
good. Note: If timed incorrectly, you will do the normal Ninja
Blade Rush, which is just a very weak move.
Hint: Yoshimitsu: Random moves:
You need to Soul Charge. When fully charged, press
K + G to do random moves that are not on the command
list. Note: It is better to switch a control on the C-stick
to K + G to make this easier.
Yoshimitsu does a random secret move, but first you need to do
Soul Syphon (Forward K + G, Up/Forward
K + G, Down/Forward K + G,
or Forward A + B (hold)). You must then press
K + G with or without any directions except the
ones mentioned. You can do up to three secret moves per Soul Syphon,
but you cannot use Soul Syphon twice to use the secret moves six
times. There are three unblockable moves; three kicks, two moves
with his sword, two dances/evades, and one guard impact move .
Note: If you do not do Soul Syphon, you will do one of two taunts,
and one of them stop an attack if they get too close (not guard
impact). The other one where he spins like a top and does not
do damage or fall over.
Hint: Yunsung: Easy wins:
Go to the edge of the arena and make sure your opponent's
back is facing the edge. Then, press A + B.
Hint: Rival selection:
When you start a new game in weapon master mode, whoever
you choose for the first battle will affect who your rival will
be for the rest of the game. If your rival is male, then his name
will be Leon. If they are female, their name will be Minerva.

Hint: Predicting demo mode winner:
A demo fight between two random characters will start
if you allow the game to idle at the title screen. There are two
ways for you to actually tell who would win before the match ends.
First, the character on the left side of the versus screen will
win. Second, the "losing" character will have his/her
mini-profile displayed first during the fight. After the "winning"
character wins, his/her mini-profile will now be displayed. Note:
There is a possibility that the "winning" character
will lose the fight and will suddenly make a pose as if he/she
actually was the fighter who won.
Hint: Perfect practice mode:
You can kill yourself in practice mode without having
to ring out, resulting in a perfect for other combatant. To do
this, select Yoshimitsu as the character that you are going to
practice with. When the practice starts, have the opponent lay
down on the ground. Next, perform Yoshimitsu's suicide attack
(where he stabs himself in the stomach). Repeat this two to four
times (one immediately after another) and you will die. Your opponent
will get a perfect in practice mode.
Hint: Recommended weapons:

Hint: Alternate dialogue:
Go to the "Options" menu and set the language
to Japanese. Go to character profiles and choose any character.
They will have new lines. For example, Nightmare says "Your
insanity... show it to me instead! Of you conceited, wretched
Hint: Peek up skirt:
Go to training mode and select either Sophitia, Seung
Mina, or Cassandra. Wait for the fight to begin. Do a kick and
pause in the middle of her kick. You will be able see up her skirt.
Cassandra's are difficult to see through her pantyhose.
Hint: Chest jiggle:
Once you have unlocked a female's character profile
go to it. Press L or R to make them turn and their
chest will bounce around.
Hint: Pac-Man reference:
On Talim's necklace, Pac-Man is eating a power-pellet.
Hint: Classic Zelda music:
Go to the temple with the god statue in it in practice
mode as Link and have your opponent be Link. You will have a 50%
chance of having the classic Zelda music.
Glitch: Wrong weapon name and description:
Unlock Yoshimitsu and Cervantes, and also buy the Weapon
Gallery. Buy some weapons for Yoshimitsu and Cervantes then, select
the "Weapon Gallery" option in the Museum. If you select
one of Yoshimitsu's or Cervantes' weapons, the picture and wielder
are correct, but the name and the description does not belong
to that character. This also happens when you unlock Sophitia.
Glitch: Strapless shields:
Go to any mode or screen that allows you to see your
collected weapons (weapon gallery, weapon master, or the extra
modes). You may have all the weapons for Cassandra and Sophitia.
You may notice that all their shields have no arm strap, which
should make you wonder how they have their shields attached to
their arm in fights. The only shield that actually has an arm
strap (besides Link) is Cassandra's ultimate sword and shield,
Glitch: Error in Cervantes' command list:
In the command list, when you do Toward, A
+ B it says that it only hits Two times. If you do that
move and get close to your opponent, it will hit three times.
Glitch: Damage with infinite life:
In a versus battle against a friend, set your life
to infinite and play on the Egyptian Crypt (fire) stage. Make
your opponent stand in the fire. After awhile their limitless
life will be damaged.
