Hidden Scrolls

An easy way to obtain the hidden Scrolls is to complete the objective in Practice mode. This will not work for the Kikyo Castle, Zabuza's Hideout, or Great Naruto Bridge stage. Obtain these Scrolls in Two Player Free mode and have one of the players not move.

    The Ramen Ichiraku stage: Strike all the lanterns on the lowest level of this stage untill they glow red and are about to break. Do not break them. If done correctly, you will get the hidden Scroll.

    Hokage's Mountainside Images stage: Jump up and down on the treetop to the left of the center ring. After about ten jumps you will receive the hidden Scroll.

    Hero's Memorial Stone stage: Strike your enemy's support character five times to receive the hidden Scroll.

    Survival Exercise Ground stage: Destroy ten of the practice dummies appearing on the back plane to obtain the hidden Scroll.

    Look Out Tower stage: This is one of the hardest Scrolls to obtain. To get the Scroll, shatter the purple barrier that stops you from plane shifting. Then, go to the giant frog's head. You must jump from the frog's head to the snake's head without falling or touching the ground. The easiest way to do this is to jump forward then double jump at the last moment. Then, perform an air dash toward the snake's head. Then, return to the frog's head using the same move. All this must be done before the snake starts breathing fire. The moment you get back to the frog's head, you will receive the hidden Scroll.

    Chunin Exam Stadium stage: Run to the hole in the ground five times to obtain the hidden Scroll. Make sure you wall-run out of the tunnel each time.

    Kikyo Castle stage: Stand on the top tail tip of the fish statue in the upper-right hand corner of the back plane while the timer gauge ticks down for ten seconds.

    Exercise Ground Forest Of Death stage: Attack the fish swimming in the stream three times to get the Scroll.

    Zabuza's Hideout stage: Stand on the building's upper most level and wait for three counts of the time gauge to receive the Scroll.

    Great Naruto Bridge stage: Stand still on the boat for three counts of the timer gauge to obtain a hidden Scroll.

    Kazekage's Mansion stage: Attack the vending machine between fifteen and thirty times to get the hidden Scroll.

    Sunagimo Estate and Buddha Statue stage: Plane shift up to the top of the level and destroy the object flying in the tornado. It will take more than one tornado to complete this.

In Freebattle mode with one or two players, use Sasuke and fight Naruto eleven times or more to get a hidden Scroll.
