Trophy Info

Ryu Hayabusa

Ryu Hayabusa, ninja of the Hayabusa clan. He has fought an extensive resume of foes ranging from other ninjas, to even fiends and demons. He always has a weapon on hand, whether it is his trusty Dragon Sword, his Ninpo, or other sorts of weapons. He brings his swift strikes and his large arsenal to Smash. He's currently one of the only people who can wield this sword without harming himself. That's the only safe to handle it.

Ryu Hayabusa(Alt)

Ryu Hayabusa's Windmill Shuriken can strike fast and even go behind him only once for a clever strike before returnig to him. His Phantom Double is a nifty attack for punishing, but his attacking phantom can be destroyed to lessen their damage and possibly a swift punishment in retaliation. The Art of the Flame Wheels covers Hayabusa and lets him attack at the same time, but the art won't last long.  Fudo-Utsusemi allows him to warp in any direction directed.  

Art of True Inferno

Ryu Hayabusa gathers his Ki energy and turns it into his Art of True Inferno. This makes Ryu Hayabusa into a fire dragon that delivers a very strong blow, rather that eating foes in Ninja Gaiden 3. This will refresh some of Ryu Hayabusa's health, so he can keep fighting on longer. The more foes he hits with this, the more health he can recover.
