During chapter 7, you will come to a room with a control panel, a save statue, doors to two pods either side of the room and a green switch which opens a trap door to climb down to proceed. If you've climbed down this hatch to find a corpse with the Tonfas weapon, climb back up the ladder and you'll be in the correct room. Behind one of the pod doors is the Piercing Void ninpo and the one opposite is the trial chamber (you must have collected the Rod of Trials from chapter 2 to see it).

This is a pretty tough challenge, and the reward isn't all that great: a Jewel of the Demon Seal. I would advise, therefore, that if you end up using a lot of your stockpiled health items completing the trial, you may want to consider reloading a previous checkpoint once achievement unlocks to keep your health items intact. It's not like you need to upgrade all of the ninpo anyway, right? (The Phoenix ninpo is considered by many to be a waste of time.)

This challenge contains the larger of the two types of robot you've encountered so far, the ninjas with SMGs/Uzis and the ninjas with rocket launchers. The way I did it was this:

- I used the the level 3 Dragon Sword and level 3 Inferno ninpo. I also had plenty of Lives of a Thousand Gods, health items, ninpo items and Incendiary Shurikens.

- I concentrated on the robots first, then the SMG ninjas, finally the rocket ninjas.

- Keep moving at all times as it's pretty difficult stay a safe distance from the robots and it makes it much harder for the rocket ninjas to aim properly.

- Every time a robot spawns, use a ninpo to soften him up (and also target two of the other ninjas if possible). Then damage the robot with Flying Swallow moves until he loses his head. Do an obliteration technique (Y button execution) close to finish him off and jump away to avoid the blast. The robots only come one at a time and a new one will spawn when you kill one. I wasn't counting, but looking at the amount of ninpo items I used, I'd say there were approximately 10-12.

- Once no more robots spawn, concentrate on the SMG ninjas with Flying Swallows. There shouldn't be that many left to spawn, considering you've killed many with your ninpo already.

- Finally, take out the rocket ninjas - there will only be two at any one time, so keep moving and either use Flying Swallows or Incendiary Shurikens to take off a limb, followed up with an Obliteration Technique.

Once you complete the level, two chests appear. The one on the left (if you're stood in the middle of the arena) contains hostile ghost fish which release blue essence when killed, the one on the right contains the Jewel of the Demon Seal. Exit the arena via the blue portal and the achievement will unlock once you're back in the room with the save statue.

Like I said before, if completing the level robs you of most of your stockpiled Lives of the Gods and other items (don't feel bad, it's pretty tough), you may want to consider ditching the Jewel in lieu of keeping the health items, by reloading the checkpoint and continuing on.
