Little Ninja Brothers isn't just an RPG! It's even got a little track and field meet mini game, with 6 different events! Since you will have to play these mini-games to progress in the game (mainly to earn special abilities and equipment), I will be covering all the types of mini-games, how to play them, and when you will encounter them.
How to Play: Keep mashing the A Button (a Turbo Controller helps here) while holding a direction on the D Pad to run. While standing still, press the A Button to punch or shoot, depending on what game you're playing. Pressing the B Button with a direction will do a jumping flip forward, which actually works better than running. Finally, pressing the B Button and then a direction while in the air will do a Dragon Kick forward as long as you have a "K" Mark remaining.
Where to find: It's not in the RPG section of the game. You can find it on the Field Meet section of the game.
Tips for winning: Nothing to it, really. Just keep jumping (rather than mashing poor little A Button) to easily win the race.
Where to find: In order to get the Dragon Kick at the beginning of the game, you must complete this mini-game in Hynen. Pop 20 balloons and get a higher score to win.
Tips for winning: Keep jumping across the field. Try to land on balloons as you jump, and don't let any get away!
Where to find: Talk to Vigilante Dog and Vigilante Monkey in the garbage can (I'm serious...) in the town of Yokan. You will have to complete (you don't have to win) this mini-game in order to get the Tiger Sword off them.
Tips for winning: Jump over everything. If you are at the edge of the pond, use a Dragon Kick rather than using the floating raft supplied there.
Where to find: You'll have to complete this event in order to get the strongest punch in the game. This game can be found in Ling-Rang.
Tips for winning: Punch every rock you see along the way. Missing the treasure is a pain in the pooter.
Where to find: Go to the McRonalds Restauraunts in Okay and Chatzy, and you can play for 15 Sen. Winning will get you a full life refill.
Tips for winning: To get the food, you must eat it, not destroy it! Stand in one spot and jump straight up to eat it.
Where to find: In order to get the T-Star equipment, play this game at Wise Stallion's place northwest of Yokan.
Tips for winning: If you press the A Button when too close to the targets, you will punch the target rather than shoot it, so keep your distance.
