3. The Eclipse scythe: Best at dismemberments, 'nuff said.

I usually reserve the Dragon Sword for Boss fights, that said, other than spamming Y+Y+Y for the heavy slashes (great for lopping off human limbs) and Flying Swallow, the only other 2 moves that I frequently try to use is "Fortune Phoenix" and "Izuna Drop"... The latter getting more and more difficult to use against the claw ninjas especially when they spam explosives =_=


In addition, I find the Falcon Claw to be exceptionally effective against humans, at least in the earlier stages, I'm currently trying to master the LV 3 move that knocks the target into the air to set up for an Izuna Drop.

Against the larger Demons, I prefer the twin swords, it provides a large radius as well as being damn good at slicing their limbs off. Like the claw though, I'm currently trying to master the LV 3 move.

I'm not using the Lunar as much as I had originally thought I would... Only against really large mini bosses like that giant ape, or against swarms of... Bats and flying fishes.

But recently, in chap 9, I'm begining to find the Scythe as a great substitute to all 3 weapons, and it's effective just by spamming X or Y...


I'm stuck in chap 9... How do you fight those giant Piranhas? I'm assuming you have to beat both them and the frankenstein-ish demons to proceed?
