How to Beat Red Dragon Fiends (Chapter 5)

Near the end of Chapter 5, you will be attacked by your first fiends, and they\'re tough! Make sure you have a good amount of health, possibly some spiritual elixers and plenty on ninpo power and elixers. The easiest thing to do is to wait for one to charge at you. Right before it hits you, hit Y+B to use your Art of the Inferno Ninpo, which you should have bought at the shop. The will run into a firewall rather than you. If they attempt to attack you at this time, you cannot be hurt, which is all the reason why Ninpo rocks! When you shoot your fireball at them, it probably won\'t be quite enough to finsih them off, so attack them with some quick... very quick combos. Do this to each one to be done with them. To conserve elixers, kill the first two using your ninpo, then duke it out with the other while blocking his scratching and tail whipping moves, and dodging his charge (this can make Ryu flinch if blocked, possibly leaving you open for attack) and bite moves (since you cannot block the bite). The Flying Swallow move will be your savior here, so never underestimate it.
