This is my solution for the "Ultimate Ninja" achievement (completing 3 ultimate trials. But i thought this may help some people on U4 and 5.

Ultimate difficulty on the story isnt really hard at all to be honest. Its nothing on the Ninja Gaiden 2 storyline but it can be frustrating at times due to the enemies being extremely grab happy. Overall i think the 1st and 3rd days are the most difficult so once you get them over its much easier.

Using the Falcons talons on the campaign is very cheap but its probably the easiest weapon to use if you can do the running Y,Y XY. It will make standard enemies a breeze. As for bosses or just general strategys for certain levels/enemies check out YouTube or Love Muffins solution.

Clearing 3 ultimates requires dedication, skill, luck or just a really good player! (Apart from U3, that trial shouldn't even be an ultimate, its an insult).

The 1st three ultimates are the easiest but if you have the ultimate DLC then im guessing your also going for you "Legendary Ninja" achievement. If this is the case then i would recommend just completing U3, U4 and U5 but if your like me your a completionist so you'll do the other trials regardless.

I would highly recommend backing up your save game every now and then to either Cloud, a memory stick or a different type of storage device. I've been reset twice so far (it usually happens when your screen freezes when the loading/saving icon is still up and you turn the xbox off or dashboard it), once when i was LVL99 and anouther when i was LVL70, luckily the second time i had a backup just incase so i didnt have to backtrack too far. So yeah back up after completing a difficult trial, it saves quite a lot of frustration.

Ok, ive uploaded numerous trials to YouTube recently and thought i would share them to hopefully help you guys. Most of them are of me soloing masters and ultimates but i have a couple of co-op trials that may help :)

Ultimate 1:

6 Standard Genshins, 2 Fiend Genshins, Spider Clan Ninja x.. (no idea but theres a fair few).

Spider Clan Ninja:

The ninja with the talons cannot be izuna'd straight off the bat, usually you have to be behind them, a way of doing this would be to jump (A) towards one, when your close to them in mid air tap (A) again and you should shadow run over their shoulders, if you now slide back into then and press (Y) you can then izuna drop then by following the (slide+Y) up with (XXXY). This works with the sword + talons

To kill them with the Scythe when they are chasing you if you use (slide+y) you can launch them in the air and proceed with (XXXY) to finish the izuna.

As for the guys with the bows i usually shurican them once and press (A+X) to windpath jump towards them then press (Y) in mid air to flying swallow. (This works with any weapon)

Normal genshins

I'd recommend practicing on Mentor 5 (the one with genshin). You can izuna drop after basically every attack if your fast but occasionally he does block or dodge especially after the 2nd izuna. After every izuna you do tap (Y) upon landing, this makes him jump back and usually allows you to get another izuna on him after his next attack.

Fiend Genshin

Easy as pie with the Scythe just use the same method i use in the video below, or if you cant do it without taking damage, instead just do one 360+y after every charge attack he does.

With the sword you can do one Y after every attack he does if your quick, sometimes he dodges but most times they make contact. If you can perfect it a good combo is -
After every attack he does tap X, wait a second, if he stands still follow it up with Y, on landing 360+y, shuricans (B), then tap Y.

There are ways of killing him with the Falcons Talons but its not always safe, honestly i wouldnt waste your time with talons tbh, but if you want to.. after every charge attack he does, you can tap Y, wait a second, tap Y again, wait a second and Y again.

Ultimate 2

This trial is pretty grab happy but fun to play. I wouldnt recommend using anything other then the talons for this trial.

White lab suited guys + rambos (guys with the berets) -

You can either use the running Y+Y combo then once your next to your opponent in the air tap XY to izuna or you can spam flying swallows.

Alcamists -

When they are charging up their magic, whilst running you can tap Y to break their magic and tap Y again to throw them in the air and follow up with XY.

When you are 1 on 1 you can tap Y (whilst standing) as soon as their back touches the ground, flick your stick up and tap Y and follow with XXXY. This combo is pure timing.

Regent of the mask (ROTM):

The safest way i know of is running Y in the opposite direction to him then the sencond Y needs to go back into him, then in the air tap X and B straight after the X, this stuns him mid air and prevents him landing on top of you and causing considerable damage.

My solo run is below please check it out, i reached number 1 on the xbox leaderboards with it :)

Ultimate 3

Self explanatory really, these guys are killed by multiple izuna drops so you can use running YY,XY with the talons or you can learn the loop with the Scythe.The loop is started by sliding away from the ryus after their attack and tapping y, the tapping "X" 3times, waiting for them to land, slide back+Y again, XXX in air and repeat until death. (The loop only works 1v1) my video below shows you how to beat this trial, its in solo mode though :)

Ultimate 4

I have beat this trial 17 times after being reset and am now leaderboard rank 5, i would go for the top spot but the guy did the regent glitch sadly.. i have to say this game all goes down to practice. I invested a lot of time into this trial and it beat the hell out of me when i started out, but a lot of practice and perseverance got me through it.

I've had a fair share of experience in ninja gaiden, therefore if you have any questions or cant kill a boss leave a comment or message me on xbox. Im not on TA much so dont feel insulted if i take too long to reply!

Check out my videos for my strategys for both trials, i would type them up but i'd be here all night so apologies for that lol.

Ultimate 5

I have beat this trial 12 times now after being reset again, i cant really say much apart from practice on mentor and leader trials until you've mastered the bosses, this will help you a lot in the long haul.

I have 4 videos for ultimate 5 at the moment, but I've only linked two here,

The video below is number 1 on the xbox leaderboards and is my best run so far =P i kill absolutely everything =D

The next video i thought i would put up here because it shows a different perspective, in this one i distract the elizabet and kill the genshin so if you want to know what to do with elizabet check this video out. Its apparently blocked in some countries so apologies if thats your country, the audio was very laggy so i replaced it with some music, so much for that! =P

I also have other Ninja Gaiden related videos on my YouTube channel -"ChrisBoi2k7x" e.g. solo'd master trials, so far ive solo'd all the masters apart from 15, feel free to check them out :)

*******If this solution helped you please click the like button, it took me quite a while to type it up and make the videos, so its appreciated :) If you do vote Negative, dont be a pussy, leave a comment and tell me why.****
