I've generalized all the gritty details into a single FAQ. Please read this while the game is loading. Or, at the very least, read the one in the preloader.



9/23/06 After an amazing 3 year run, Ronin is finally falling off top 50 of all time. Thank you for all the reviews and personal e-mails from fans all over. Work on the sequel had just begun - yeah, it's 3 years late, but better late than never right?

Oh what memories it brings back of middle school. Letting games fully load for 20 minutes on dial up so I can play them offline.

One of my most fondly remembered childhood flash games. (I know I shouldn't have been playing this as a kid, but when did that stop any of us?) It still holds up great, even today. My only true complaint is that every level is the same temple area, so it gets same-y after a while.

@Jeanioz Thank you so much for that password guide! This game has been converted to Ruffle, but Ruffle doesn't let you copy-paste text, and trying to type out one of those passwords by hand isn't feasible. Thank you for providing a solution!

Ronin - Spirit of the Sword

Super password:

and have ultimate strength, defense, Chi and all magic spells.

In v1.1, enter "INZZZZZZZZZZZZEZZZZZZODEFGHNV" as a password for maximum stats
and everything unlocked. Each characters position in the password is constructed
as follows.

- D, E, F: Hard episodes
- G, H, I: Extreme episodes
2: N (Placeholder)

ZZZ is not the maximum; above Z is /, but beyond that the codes get into various
characters. You can experiment to find them all, but 2766 is high enough to stroll
through the final level. The placeholders cannot be changed without giving an error.
The spell level character is reversed; any character lower than W gives you maximum,
higher characters give you lower spell levels. The inventory code characters are the
code plus the slot number. If you want to experiment to find all the inventory codes,
try it in the first slot, then add use one letter higher for each slot after the

For example, C is sushi in the first slot, G is sushi in the fifth slot.
