For Naoko. For peace. Shinobi forever!
Rescue Naoko without using a continue.
Stage 8: Act III
As the trophy states you must rescue Naoko without using a continue, but you are able to die so as you start up a new game set the difficulty to Easy so you begin with 9 lives in addition to setting the shurikens to 00 and wait until it creates an infinite symbol allowing you to throw an unlimited amount of them.
During this act you will need to defeat Zeed before the ceiling comes down and crushes Naoko. You can prevent the ceiling from coming down by shooting shurikens into the black space in the wall on the left side of the stage (proceed to do this as you battle Zeed). To attack Zeed you will crouch down and strike at Zeed as his hair straightens out and back away to dodge his hair he flings out at you (do this as you hit the black space in the wall to the left with the shurikens). If you use the Ikazuchi Jutsu Ninjutsu you will be protected from Zeed's attacks. Try going into the boss battle by collect the POW shortly before giving you a power boost with your shurikens dealing more damage.
A Clash With Evil
Defeat the Round 1 boss without using the 8-way Shuriken Attack.
Stage 1: Act III
Defeat the boss without using the 8-way Shuriken Attack which is done by performing a double jump and using
to throw multiple shuriken's at once. This would eliminate the boss and leave you with no trophy earned.
Ways to defeat the boss:
1. Stick to the left or right side of the screen and wait for the boss to swing his sword, jumping up into the air throwing a shuriken at his helmet. This can easily be done if you are standing on the second tier platform on either side waiting for him to walk over and attempt to strike you. Jump over him, turn around, jump and throw a shuriken at his head and this should hit him. Do this a few more times to eliminate him.
2. Using Ninjutsu is the fastest way, however you will be inclined to lose a life each time you use it so you need to be careful about what you're choosing since you need to complete the game without using a continue. It shouldn't matter much if you use the extra life exploit in the tips and strategies
above. As the boss battle begins press
and scroll over using
until the Mijin Ninjutsu (far right next to your current lives) and back out of the Ninjutsu options by pressing
again. Now press
when you are near the boss and an animation will occur with you dying and losing a life. Repeat this step once more to defeat the boss.
3. Mix step two with step one if you don't wish to lose 2 lives at once or have no Ninjutsu to use.
Each time you die on the boss (lose a life) he will be back to full health so dealing damage and dying to do even more damage is not going to work. This must be done while using one life.
Brawn Over Ninjutsu
Finish 6-1 without using any Ninjutsu.
Stage 6: Act I
This may sound easier than it really is or harder depending on how often you use the Ninjutsu. All you need to do is make it through Stage 6 Act 1 without using any of the Ninjutsu's at any time, instead of using the Ninjutsu use the 8-way Shuriken Attack. There will be lots of jumping areas and enemies appearing randomly in hazard areas so it will become hectic real quick so be careful and quick being aware of what is happening on both sides of the stage.
You should make multiple saves throughout the act in case you die multiple times you can always go back to where you were before without having to worry about using a continue disabling the For Naoko. For peace. Shinobi forever!
in 1 playthrough.
The dancing lady in Chinatown must not be defeated!
Stage 6: Act I
There are three women that appear during this act in blue dress that deal a large quantity of damage so be careful and evade them at all cost. Avoid using the 8-way Shuriken Attack and the Ninjutsu which could potentially eliminate the enemy in a single blow, instead attempt to jump over them or crouch beneath them as they are jumping.
Complete the stage without killing ANY
woman meaning you can not kill even one.
Shinobi Has Fallen
How was that dive into the waterfall?
Stage 2: Act I
During this act you will come across plenty of gaps between platforms allowing you to fall down into the empty space. Save your game prior to jumping down if you wish not to lose a life.
Use 300 Shuriken.
Whether you used the infinite shuriken exploit or not you should easily be able to obtain this before completing the game. By pressing
you throw a shuriken if you have some distance between you and your enemy. Once you have thrown a cumulative of 300 shurikens the trophy will be rewarded to you.
If you wish to speed up the process you can do the 8-way shuriken attack by performing a double jump with the attack which will throw out multiple shuriken's at once. This trophy also doesn't require for the shuriken to hit or kill an enemy.
Behold! Emblem of Blue!
Appreciate the SEGA logo.

The Traps of Neo Zeed
Trigger 10 bombs.
Bombs can be found within the boxes/crates that are scattered throughout the acts during the course of the game. Not every box/crates holds a bomb as some will be power-ups or health pickups. When you come across a bomb stand away from it, but keep it within your sights so you can watch it explode shortly after it has been shown. Find and watch the bomb blow up 10x.
Miraculous Ninja Arts
Use all four types of Ninjutsu in one game.
For this trophy you must use each of the four type of Ninjutsu attacks by pressing
and using the
to select a ninjutsu then press start again to back out of the selection and finally press
to use the ninjutsu.
The ninjutsu cannot be used whenever you like, it can only be used once per act unless you pick up a scroll from one of the boxes/crates. This can be earned early on in the game or towards the end as it just has to be earned during one game without continuing.
A nice little exploit is to save your progress before using a ninjutsu die which allows you to use another ninjutsu and die again. Rinse and repeat another 2x to complete all 4 types. You also do not need to get any kills while using each type.
Guard 10 attacks with your cross-guard.
To perform a guard on enemy attacks you first need to pick up a POW pickup (before picking up the POW make a save in case you need to try again). Once obtained, Joe (your character) will place his hands in the form of a cross only while moving (if standing still or crouched Joe will not use his guard).
Secondly you will need to do the guard as enemies are throwing shurikens at you which will then cause Joe to block them if you are moving forward towards them. Try to find an enemy in a defensive posture (crouch) throwing the shuriken where you can walk back and fourth until you have unlocked the trophy.
Demonstrate Joe Musashi's 8-way Shuriken Attack.
This can be done anywhere including the first stage and act. What you will need to do is perform a double jump and throw the shuriken with the attack button
Double jumps are done by jumping (pressing
one time) and then as you reach the peak of the initial jump you will then pressing
to jump once more performing the jump in mid-air. Once that has been done throw out your shuriken to earn the trophy.
