Bacchus Training

==1==

Powerful Willpower Counterattack

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 31 and 33 in the Thug Style sphere grid.

Speak to Bacchus and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to learn one of his techniques. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

You then get a list of techniques Kiryu can learn (depending on which upgrades you have already purchased). Select the TOP OPTION to ask "What is important in a fight?". Bacchus tells Kiryu that willpower is the most important thing in a fight, so he teaches him a technique which enables Kiryu to hit back much harder after being hit. Suddenly, a hitman shows up. He says he's been paid a lot of money to get Bacchus and that, while he may not look it, he is a great fighter - apparently he's never lost. Then Kiryu fights him.

Now the game tells you how to use your new ability. Right after being hit, hold down either Triangle or Square to launch a powerful counterattack. After successfully performing the attack 3 times, defeat the hitman.

Kiryu asks him who paid him to assassinate Bacchus. The hitman says he couldn't see his face very well (it was dark), but says he's probably a foreigner because of the way he was speaking.

Face Twist Mastery

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 20 and 21 in the Thug Style sphere grid.

Speak to Bacchus and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to learn one of his techniques. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

You then get a list of techniques Kiryu can learn (depending on which upgrades you have already purchased). Select the TOP OPTION to ask "Is there a special tehnique I can use to break through an enemy's guard?". Bacchus tells Kiryu of a claw technique he can use to bypass guard, then teaches him the Face Twist move. Suddenly, another hitman shows up. He says rumours been going round that Bacchus has a really tough bodyguard, so he has been sent to take care of this. Kiryu then fights him.

Now the game tells you how to use your new ability. When facing an enemy who is guarding (and you are in 3rd gear heat), press Triangle to perform the heat action. After performing the heat action 3 times, defeat the hitman.

===================================================

Knife Arm Break Mastery

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 1, 2 and 3 in the Thug Style sphere grid.

Speak to Bacchus and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to learn one of his techniques. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

You then get a list of techniques Kiryu can learn (depending on which upgrades you have already purchased). Select the TOP OPTION to ask "Is there a special technique I can use against enemies with blades?". Bacchus talks about how dangerous knives are and how Kiryu should be careful when going up against someone using one, then teaches him a new technique which was apparently used by a famous street fighter in the USA. Suddenly, another hitman shows up. Kiryu fights him.

Now the game tells you how to use your new ability. When an enemy attacks you with a bladed weapon (and you are in at least 2nd gear heat), press Triangle to counter. After performing the heat action 3 times, defeat the hitman.

===================================================

==4==

Rear Wall Mastery

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 1, 2, 3, 6 and 42 in the Thug Style sphere grid.

Speak to Bacchus and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to learn one of his techniques. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

You then get a list of techniques Kiryu can learn (depending on which upgrades you have already purchased). Select the TOP OPTION to ask "Is there a special technique I can use when I have my back against a wall?". Bacchus mentions how it's a similar situation to a boxer being backed into a corner and that it's difficult to escape from such a situation, but he does know a technique that can be used on the streets (though not in a boxing ring) - technique which makes use of the wall. Suddenly, another hitman shows up. Bacchus says he knows this guy - apparently he abandoned championship glory to become a mafia bodyguard. Kiryu then fights him.

Now the game tells you how to use your new ability. When your back is against a wall and there is an enemy in front of you (and you are in 3rd gear heat), press Triangle to perform the heat action. After performing the heat action 3 times, defeat the hitman.

===================================================

Finishing Blow Mastery

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 20, 21, 22, and 26 in the Thug Style sphere grid.

Speak to Bacchus and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to learn one of his techniques. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

You then get a list of techniques Kiryu can learn (depending on which upgrades you have already purchased). Select the TOP OPTION to ask "Is there a powerful special technique I can use after a combo?". Bacchus talks about how powerful Kiryu's combos are and says he thinks there's a powerful technique he could use after his strong back blow attack. Suddenly, another hitman shows up. Kiryu fights him.

Now the game tells you how to use your new ability. After a Square - Square - Square - Triangle combo attack (and you are in 3rd gear heat), press Triangle to launch a finishing blow. After performing the heat action 3 times, defeat the hitman.

After beating him, he says he's not actually a hitman - he's just a tool of Raymond Cartell. Then he says "We'll meet again, Kiryu Kazuma" and leaves. Kiryu wonders how he knew his name and asks Bacchus if he knows anything, but Bacchus tells him it's a secret. He then tells Kiryu to come by again for training.

===================================================

You can speak to Bacchus again after learning all the techniques to fight the hitmen again, for some reason. There doesn't seem to be any purpose to this other than to finish off Bacchus' story - he leaves back to America after Kiryu beats the hitmen.

Kamoji Training

==1==

Swallow Spirit

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 15 and 16 in the Rush Style sphere grid.

Speak to Kamoji and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to do the 10,000 yen course. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

Kamoji stands at the entrance to the car park and announces that his student will be taking on challengers for the "knock me down" challenge. Then some drunk dude shows up and accepts the challenge. He goes over the rules again. Remember:

You lose if you get knocked to the ground or lose all your health
If you attack the enemy, you lose

If you lose the challenge, you can just speak to Kamoji to do it again - but you'll have to pay him again. After surviving the challenge, Kamoji teaches Kiryu the new technique and gives Kiryu 15,000 yen. Kiryu asks why he didn't get the full 20,000 and Kamoji says he's just taking his share - he's the mind behind this, after all. He says the next one will be 100,000 yen.

Rotating Gunfire Mastery

You can only learn this ability after you have purchased abilities 1, 2, 38, 39 and 40 in the Rush Style sphere grid.

Speak to Kamoji and he'll ask if Kiryu is ready to do the 100,000,000 yen course. Select the TOP OPTION to say yes.

Kamoji stands at the entrance to the car park and announces that his student will be taking on challengers for the "knock me down" challenge. Some dude shows up and accepts the challenge - but he wants to use a weapon as well, since he heard someone used a sword before. He goes over the rules again. Remember:

You lose if you get knocked to the ground or lose all your health
If you attack the enemy, you lose

Interestingly, you win even if you lose the challenge. If you lose any of the previous ones you have to do it again, but for this one you win even if you fail. So you can actually get through this one quicker by deliberately letting yourself lose. After the challenge, Kiryu notices some guys watching from afar - one of them if the guy from the previous challenge, who wants Kamoji to stop his "knock me down" challenges. Kamoji then teaches Kiryu the new technique. Kiryu thanks Kamoji for all his advice and says he now "graduates" from the "knock me down" challenge, then he fights the 3 guys who were watching them. After beating them, Kiryu tells them never to return. Then Kamoji gives Kiryu 200,000,000 yen (from the challenge fee). Kiryu asks why he won't take the 50,000,000 yen cut; he could get himself a house and not be homeless anymore - but Kamoji says he already has himself a little apartment, so he's not homeless anymore, and that's all he needs to be satisfied.

At first you can only do the first 2 crash courses, but more will become available after helping her collect money. To access courses 6 an onwards, choose the 2nd from bottom option (the one after course 5).

Every time you successfully pass a course, you get Tatsuane's Drink as a reward, which restores heat. Every time you pass the Ultimate course, you get Tatsuane's Drink - Ultimate, which fully restores heat up to its maximum amount.

The challenge fee is how much you must pay to take the course. The Target money is how much money you must make in the course in order to pass.

Basically, destroying the manaquin gets money and destroying boxes gets money (the amount you get is indicated on the box itself). Within the time limit, you must both get enough money to pass the course and destroy all the manaquins.

After you beat him, Kiryu asks where this dude is and he tells him he's gone to Tatsuane's hideout - he's after her! Kiryu rushes back to Tatsuane and finds the guy standing over Tatsuane, then fights him. After you beat him, Kiryu goes all mafia on him and tells him he's gonna stick him in an oil drum and dump him into the sea! Tatsuane steps in and tells Kiryu there's no need for it, then convinces the guy to pay back what he owes and never show his face again.

After all that shit, Tatsuane thanks Kiryu and he thanks her - saying it's because of her that he's become so much stronger. Kiryu then learns the new technique.
