Below is a guide on how to clear the Twilight of Edo Japan chapter (Oboromaru’s scenario) without killing any human enemies in Live A Live Remake (Live A Live 2022 HD-2D Remaster). Doing so allows you to obtain Yoshiyuki, a special sword that boasts 40 attack power and can paralyze foes on hit.

Zero Kills Mechanics

For the zero kills run, you must not kill any human enemies throughout the chapter. This includes all Manservants, Maids, Ronin, Samurai, Retainers, and Ninjas. Doing so will immediately prevent you from obtaining Yoshiyuki at the end of the game. All non-human enemies like Lost Souls, Flame/Gas/Ice Contraptions, and Icons can be defeated without any negative effects on the challenge.

Bosses such as Puppetmaster Gennai, Miyamoto Musashi, Yodogimi, and Ode Lou (his regular and frog-snake form) can also be killed to get Yoshiyuki at the end of the chapter as they do not count as human enemies.

How to Level Up Without Killing Human Enemies

Live A Live Remake - How to Level Up (0 Kills)

Since it is generally recommended to be at least level 10 to clear the chapter without any problems, you may want to grind a few levels while exploring Ode Lou’s fortress.

To do so, you should head into the storehouse northeast of the second fortress building and farm the three Lost Soul (spirits) there for some experience. Do this until you are around level 6 to learn Shuriken Storm before proceeding further.

Zero Kills Walkthrough

1 Use Shadowed Self to get past the first pair of guards and enter the first castle building (if you initiate combat, just escape).
2 After the cutscene with the captain and the samurai guards, head right and enter the last room. Get Chainmail x1 from the chest.
3 Exit the room and go left past the two rooms. Enter the door and go north past the Ronin here. Then, exit the building through the large door ahead.
4 Head left past another Ronin and head for the second building entrance. Give the password to go in.
5 Move forward and enter the room at the end on the right (avoid the Ronin in the hall).
6 Follow the Ninja through the revolving door and talk to him. Then, investigate the attic.
7 Watch the cutscene with Papa Rat and Little Rat. Open two chests to the south and one to the west to get some items, including Koban x1.
8 Exit to the northwest and an enemy ninja will appear (Soaring Ibis). Quickly use Shadowed Self to hide and take the exit on your left (if you initiate combat, just flee).
9 Move along the rooftops going left and as it comes around to the right. Then, jump over the gap ahead. Once you reach an attic, you will see a rat inside that will fall through a trapdoor in the middle of the room. Avoid this trapdoor as it takes you back into the level’s entrance and head for the exit on the right.
10 Once outside again, continue following the rooftop path going right until it goes up the wooden stairs. Continue following the rooftop path as it stars to go around to the left until you reach another attic. Open the chests to get a Slice of Castella Cake and the Storehouse Key.
11 Exit the attic the way you came and backtrack to the first attic with the trapdoor in the middle of the room. You now want to fall through the trapdoor so do so now.
12 Back at the starting area, proceed again through the level until you reach the entrance of the second building (the one where you were asked for a password). Instead of approaching the guards, head downstairs to the lower left and use the Storehouse Key to enter the building. Approach the chest but quickly use Shadowed Self to hide from the ninja that drops down behind you. Wait for him to look away and open the chest to get the Dungeon Key.
13 Exit the building and head inside the second building again. From here, you want to go forward and go left. Enter the leftmost door and keep going straight past the Maids.

15 Once outside, go up the stairs through the castle’s gate. Then, head right and cross the bridge. Follow the path until you reach another storehouse. Use the Storehouse Key again to go inside. Here, you can pick up Ode Shuriken x1, Izanagi Scroll x1, Koban x1, Genji Tabi x1, Shrimp Rice Ball x2, and Topknot x1. There are also three Lost Soul spirits here that you can farm for levels (since they are not human, they will not affect your 0 kill run). Enter and exit the building to make them respawn. Try to reach at least level 6 to learn Shuriken Storm. Do not attack the woman here as this will cause the Lost Soul to stop respawning.
16 Backtrack all the way to the attic where you encountered Papa Rat and Little Rat and head to the rooftops.
17 Move along the rooftop path again until you reach the attic where you got the Storehouse Key. This time, exit through the door on the upper left.

80 Back at the room where Gennai was hiding, approach the slot on the wall again (do not step on the blue pillow). Insert 1 Koban to turn the tea room back to its original state.
81 From here, feel free to do some exploring if you want to grab more items in the level (exit through the tea room’s entrance and back up the ladder to the attic). You may want to backtrack to the Path of Shuttered Lanterns to battle Majin Ryunosuke (an optional boss) to get Muramasa (weapon) from him now that you have O-Robo to help you. You can also go into the water again and approach the large shadow to fight Lord Iwama to get the Suijin Scale (accessory).

82 When you are ready, head back to the room where Gennai was hiding and go through the door to the north.

91 Watch the cutscene. Afterwards prepare to battle Ode Lou again in his Frogsnake demon form.
92 Have Ryoma use Polaris Single Blade to damage the final boss up close. Oboromaru should attack with Ninja Strength and Wind Slash from the back. As much as possible, you want to avoid standing diagonally from the Ode Lou to avoid his Drink Blood attack which heals him. Use Fireflies Wake or Water Arts when the final boss transforms the tiles to poison as well. Do not hesitate to use items like Slice of Castella Cake or Izanagi Scroll when your HP is low.
93 Once Ode Lou is defeated, watch the cutscene. Afterwards, you will get Yoshiyuki from Ryoma if you successfully cleared the chapter without killing any human enemies.
