The Art of Divine Life (霊命の術, Reimyou no Jutsu; "Art of Spirit Life") is a Ninja art used by Ryu Hayabusa in Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword. It can be purchased from Muramasa in Chapter 4.


Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword[]

Upon learning the Art of Divine Life, Ryu Hayabusa is able to convert his ki energy into spiritual life energy and fully heal himself.


  • Fully heals Ryu's spiritual health bar.


  • Uses up ki that could be used for other ninpo.
  • No offensive capabilites


A healing ninpo, it is considered one of the more useful ninpo in Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword since there are no healing items. The Art of Divine Life is the only way to recover health in the heat of battle when there are no other means of healing. Although it is best to avoid using this ninpo and recover life via blue essences and Dragon Statues, it is still best to keep a ki slot for this ninpo in case of emergencies.


  • In Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword this ninpo can be considered equivalent to healing items such as the Elixers, Herbs and Grains of Spiritual Life.
