The inventory screen, translated.

You will collect items throughout the game that will help you in your quest. Some items can only be purchased in shops in exchange for gold, while other items can be collected during gameplay. Of the items which can be collected, some items are deposited in predetermined positions, while others are obtained by defeating enemies. Items are broken down into three major categories: Attack items, Defense items, and miscellaneous. While some Attack items and Defense items can only be used one time, most can be used indefinitely. Only one Attack item and one Defense item can be active at any time. Pause the game and use the A button and B button buttons to cycle through your available Attack and Defense items.

Attack items[edit]

"Iwa no Ken"- rock sword. The paths through some stages have obstacles that you can't jump over. Instead, you will need a weapon capable of cutting through them. You can use the Rock Sword to cut a path through these walls and reach your destination on the other side.

"Mashura no Koma"- top of devilishness. By activating this weapon, you become a living weapon whenever you jump through the air. Each time you leap, you will somersault and attack any enemy that gets close to you.

Wave Motion Sword
