Description[edit | edit source]

Ninja Gaiden (NES)[edit | edit source]

Ryu discovered a secret art form at the end of a special training session. He takes 3 balls of fire and twirls them around, burning any enemy in his way.[1]

Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos[edit | edit source]

After long training, Ryu developed this secret skill. With this skill he can throw fire wheel at his foes and burn them up.[2]

Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom[edit | edit source]

This is the secret art Ryu invented at the end of his special training. You can throw a flame at an upward angle and burn the enemy.[3]

Plot[edit | edit source]

By focusing his mind on spiritual wave forms around him, Ryu is able to create many fireballs around him. But instead letting them circle around him, Ryu uses his pyrokinetic abilities to launch these fireballs into the air, burning anything caught in the firewheel's path.

Advantages[edit | edit source]

  • Effective on bosses.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
