Easy kills

Have the Ninja Mind Control technique and either Rin's Shadow technique unlocked. With Ayame, have the Mind Control and either Chameleon or Invisibility. When playing, just have the Shadow with Rin or the Chameleon or Invisibility with Ayame. Approach kill range and press Circle. They will not be able to move, but if you bump them, the Mind Control will wear off. Make sure to stay a good distance from them until you are ready to kill them. You could go through the entire stage and paralyze all enemies then just leave them or kill them in any way desired.

Double stealth kills

Although it may seem as there are only two double stealth kills, there are three X2 stealth kills on the ground and two in the air.

Easy scrolls

Use the "Easy kills" trick with the Ninja Mind Control technique. Stay at the limit of the kill range. Your kill range indicator must be off, but if you walk a very short distance forward (R1 or R2 + Up), your kill range indicator will turn on. Then, press quickly Forward + Attack (Up + Square). If you press Attack simultaneously when the kill range indicator turns on, you will perform a super "stealth kill". It is the same as the normal stealth kill, but a golden Kanji symbol will appear around your radar, the animation will be longer (with more details), and you will get one more scroll for each enemy killed with normal stealth kill, and two more scrolls for each enemy killed with double stealth kill. This technique is not easy to learn, but once you are skilled at it you can start to get more scrolls easily.
