Each enemy has a description describing behaviors and attacks, they also have the amount of shurikens are required to be defeated as well as the amount of points you receive after they are defeated. Some enemies also have a "More Info" section with a link to their Wikipedia page that will provide more information on their Japanese folklore.

Enemies[edit]

Enemies are found in every stage and they will try to stop you from reaching the end of the game.

Aobozu[edit]

NS enemy Aobozu.png

These guys look like Yadokai but just blue. They charge up to shoot out three energy balls, going diagonally up, forward, and diagonally down. The hard part is you can't attack them while they are charging up, so you must attack while they are already attacking.

  • Defeat: 2 Shuriken
  • Points: 25

Aohannya[edit]

  • More Info: Hannya

Ashigaru[edit]

Hannya[edit]

Mushi[edit]

  • Points: 10

Takenoko[edit]

Yurei[edit]
