Boss: Shadow Rasetsu
Here is your introduction to the boss fights of Ninja Gaiden II. Generally speaking, your best strategies are to keep moving and play defense. Avoid or block the attacks from the boss and then counter with an attack of your own when there's an opening. You can use a move called Reverse Wind to move quickly while you're blocking. Just flick the thumbstick in the direction that you want to go and Ryu will do a short dash that way. This is very useful for moving quickly around bosses while not dropping your guard.

Wind Blades: This is his only ranged attack, but it can be annoying if you aren't watching for it. He will roar and scream at the sky, then a flurry of blades will fly towards you. As soon as he yells, dash away. The blades don't really track you, so they are relatively easy to avoid.

Claw Combo: He has a few of these, but they are basically all the same. He will just run, or crawl up to you, then start trying to slash you. One variant that he'll sometimes use is a jump high in the hair where he'll try and crush you. In any case, if you just dash or Reverse Wind away, then he shouldn't hit you. When he finishes a combo, he usually stands still, giving you a nice chance to hurt him.

Strategy: For your first boss, he isn't really that difficult. Basically, what you want to do as soon as the fight starts, is charge up a level two Ultimate Technique with whatever weapon you like. I prefer the Lunar Staff, but the Dragon Sword works very nicely as well. He will usually run directly at you. Just as he gets to you, unleash it to take off a nice chunk of his health. He will be stunned for a bit after this, so run away and charge another level two Ultimate Technique. If you can keep up this strategy, he should go down in less then a minute. Just keep your eye out for him to start his Wind Blades attack and be prepared to break out of your Ultimate Technique and dash away.
