With Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection drops today with Xbox Game Pass, we wanted to look back at some of the most brutal and frenetic combat scenes in franchise history to help you re-immerse yourself in this classic collection of games. Continuing our Xbox Wire feature, Baddest Bosses in the Business, we present the top three fights in the world Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection. Time to make Ryu Hayabusa proud and take down baddies like a boss!
Fight #1: Ninja Gaiden Sigma – Murai
At the end of the game, Ryu fights a much faster version of Murai, a ruthless warrior who also added some of Doku’s attacks to his arsenal. Top it off with the fact that if this boss kills you, you’ll actually have to start the entire final level from scratch, and this becomes a fight for the ages! Murai is Ryu Hayabusa’s uncle and former warlord in charge of the Shadow Ninja Clan. Murai grabs the dark dragon blade and tries to kill his nephew. Use a series of Flying Swallow attacks to ensure Murai meets his fate and not Ryu.
Fight #2: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 – Elizabeth
One of Vazdah’s four Greater Fiend Lords, Elizabet is also the ruler of Crimson Blood and Queen. In keeping with her Crimson Blood title, Elizabet actually shoots blood at our favorite ninja, and when the blood hits Hayabusa, Elizabet regains health points. Use the Eclipse Scythe to strike from medium range while avoiding its blood-sucking maneuvers. Defeat them to collect the Heart of Crimson Blood!
Fight #3: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razors Edge – Goddess
The last boss of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razors Edge, Goddess is a deity created by the Lords of Alchemy. Crafted through a combination of biotechnology and magic, Goddess is a giant creature used as a weapon to destroy the old world while hoping to create a new one in its place. At the beginning of the fight, focus your attacks on the surrounding Chimera. After eliminating the enemies, the goddess will try to kill you with her sword and crush you with her huge arm. Slide under the sword attacks, dodge the arm slam, then quickly attack her arm to deal damage. Finally, a fast-paced time event plays out, leading to the final sequence of the game. Can Ryu Hayabusa save the day (and the world)!?
