Shinobu is the 8th ranked assassin and she uses a katana. She has an ability called "Sonic Sword"
- Tapping the control stick right or left while she is attacking to "quick dodge" works well
- Her Sonic sword is dodged by a simply calmly moving to the left or right, but if it is a problem for you use the emergency dodge
- Doing the wrestling move when she is stunned does more damage than finishing your combo
- Honestly there isnt much strategy to this beyond dodge and attack when she is open
Shinobu gives you 8th rank and a LB and vitality bonus (in the box)
