Gameplay

In this rhythm game, the player controls the Ninja. He uses the A button, and then the D-Pad, to swing his sword back and forth in time to destroy the arrows shot as his lord.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: Swing sword right. Can only be done if the sword is to the left.
  • D-Pad: Swing sword left. Can only be done if the sword is to the right.

Arcade Version

  • D-Pad: Swing Sword Left and Right (depends on its current place).

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Swing sword left or right (depends on its current place).

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The arrow is split in half.
  • Barely: The arrow will bounce out of the way, making a shing noise. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The arrow goes past the ninja and pins to the wall, shocking the master.

Rhythm Item

Scroll Rolled-Up Secrets
Scroll
Item holder
My lord carries this scroll with him
at all times. I have never asked him
what it contains, but the rumor is
that its secrets made him the wealthy
and powerful man he is today. But it
might just be a love letter or something.

Skill Star

When the enemies shoot four arrows at once, slice the arrows perfectly to collect the star.

Ninja Bodyguard also appears in the 2P mode of Rhythm Tengoku (Arcade) where it is referred to as Ninja 2P (忍者 2P Ninja 2P?). It plays the same as the 1P version, except the two players take turns on each section. This effectively doubles the length of the game.

Trivia

  • This is the only Rhythm Game in the entire series to start with a skippable cutscene instead of a practice.
  • This game and Ninja no Shison are the only games to have their controls changed in the arcade version.
  • The towers during the cutscene look similar to the ones seen in Dog Ninja.
    • Additionally, the Ninja Bodyguard prologue shares the same scenario as the one for Dog Ninja: A big yellow moon with grass in foreground, in a dark blue sky.
  • According to the debug menu in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, a short version of this game was intended to appear.[1]
  • In Rhythm Tengoku: The Best Plus and Rhythm World: The Best Plus, the description changes depending on the which control setting is being used. Normally, the word "タッチ" (Touch) is written in green, but here it is not. In all other versions, the description is rewritten without the controls.
