The armadillo is hard don't get embarrassed and anyway i hate to say it but you have to fight two of them on Chapter 12, THAT'S RIGHT TWO at the same time.

When the armadillo turns red, you wont deal any damage as he transforms, when he stops screaming and blowing fire, hell probably turn into a ball, and do the same thing when he wasn't on fire, just do what you do and dodge, and when he stops, start hitting his tail or leg, and if you have a Scyth, i recommend hitting is head, as it deals a great amount of damage, then when he gets down because hes weak press Y and Ryu will do an obliteration technique, and when he lands on the ground, just block the explosion and done.

Yeah, i also have seen that the scythe actually deals a lot more damage to bosses to regular weapons, i mean, with the upgraded scythe i managed to kill every boss, and i didnt die as much as i did without them, the scythe does in fact deal a significant amout of damage, and its easier to kill boses with, as with a scyth it will deal damage enough so that you can in fact use healing items without worry that iut will go to waste

In order to do the Test of Valor, you need the Rod of Trials. You get that when you're first in Hayabusa village and you see a screen go to some candles and say "The candles have been lit." Jump over the gate near the candles, press RB when it prompts, and you'll get the rod. Then you'll start seeing glowing circles here and there, those are the Trials.

Yeah, It will say 'the candles have been lit' once you defeat 'x' amount of foes. They'll keep coming from the stairs near that shrine, so wait around and kill them one by one until that small cinematic shows.

the best tactic against any boss i find is to spam forward and Y when you get the chance with the double sword, it does far more damage in a short amount of time than anything else i have found

Test of Valor on Chapter 5 (Test of Blue) Strategy:
- Switch to Incindinary Shurikens first and TAKE DOWN THOSE Flying Demons first (This is really key as it does kill them quicker, but sometimes if you didn't hit them in the right place they will DIVE BOMB you)
- After those are depleted, switch to arrows and take out the rest that way (There is a arrowed dead body there so you'll have enough).
- After those are done, take out the wolf beats, but they like to throw dead body parts at you.

I did the Chapter 5 test of valor in one try, and I am anything but good at this game. I used the bow, jumped and shot until all the flying demons were dead. Then it was just ultimate technique with lunar staff on the wolves.

The Chapter 7 test of valor I skipped. Those big predator things, 4 gun-shotting ninjas and 3 bazooka shotting ninjas wailed on me. Any one have any advice for this test?

I just beat the test of valour on chapter 7 before hopping on these forums. It took me a few tries, the enemies are very tough. (I'm playing through on warrior first time through. Game only just came out here in england on friday)

Heres the tactic I used.

First things first dodge around the arena, jump and foward+y attack the rocket ninjas with the dragon sword. If you're dodging fast enough (i use LT+direction to get me moving then finish it with a jump. fastest way to traverse in the game I find) then the gun firing ninjas and mini-mech things wont be able to touch you. So yeah slash the rocket ninjas in mid-air with your dive move. You can slash them three times in the air before you land and if you have an upgraded sword their head will usually pop off. Do this for a while and they will stop respawning.

Next focus on the mechs. When they get close use your blade wind ninpo (I had mine at level 3) and one of their limbs will pop off allowing you a obliteration instakill. When you do this make sure you dodge+jump away from the corpse before it explodes - it takes off loads of life. The most you can defeat this way is 7, 4 of your original ninpo and 3 ninpo restore items. I only defeated six this way. A few more come - the way i dealt with these is the same jump+slash until a limb pops off then obliterate.

If you play well enough you should be left with the gun firing ninjas which I brought out my scythe for and finished the job with no problem and little health loss. It annihilates them.

Overall I used a full heal in the form of a Life of a Thousand Gods and 1 medical grain thing (the big heal). Just keep plugging and you should get lucky.

Tips for Final Chapter 7 Boss:
- Head On! Apply Incindenary Shurikens directly to the forehead!
- Um...Hold LT. Dead serious, that's it. Hold LT. I think it's BS.

In Chapter 2 after you kill a bunch of guys, it should say "the candles are lit". After that, jump over the rail and take the rod of trials. It's before you start climbing up the stairs to the mountain, you seriously can't miss it.

as far as i know you can't go back, i'm in level 12 but ng2 isn't build like ng1 with all that backtracking possibilities. and i dont think that if you get the rod of trials in a new game, that it will be recognized in your current one.

i did the tests of valor all alone with dragon sword and without the use of healing items. as for test 2, try the Obliteration techs and spam fully loaded UT for some nice kills. and remember to dodge after a kill, because most of the time another fiend will try a jumpgrab on you. keep trying and you will get the skill to beat em fairly easy

Can anyone help with the the Dead Fire Boss (sorry don't know his name). Its in the underworld level (12 or 13 I think).

I don't have any healing potions or anything. I can get him down to half health before he gets his little red creatures to attack me. And at the beginning he flies around and shoots fireballs. Any ideas...???

Chapter 9 - Test of Red
- It's next a save point, you can't miss it. If you do...you have problems, heh heh
- I beat it in under 2 minutes on Acolyte (It's now my Uploaded Movie), as all I did was spam UT. It's really easy, no matter how you approach it.
