Final Battle part 1: Akuro
Yep your finally able to fight Akuro though I'm breaking the battle into two parts to make it easier to read. This battle will be right after the battle with Kurow so theres no way to stock up on items. Now the battle starts with a fairly long cut scene once you get through it the battle begins. Now the first thing you'll notice is that Akuro has a pair of hands. You'll have to watch out for them because they'll grab and smash you if you let your guard down. This first little part of this battle is fairly easy once you know what to do. Akuro surrounds himself with flames, ice and lightning. To get past this use wind on the flames and lightning. If you know the Celestial Brush technique Inferno use that on the ice. This will stun him and give you a chance to attack. After doing this a couple of times Akura will start charging an attack. The only way that I found that will stop this attack is to use slash on his mouth as much as you can before he can fire the attack. Now this is where the two hands come on at. You'll have to use Slash on Akuro and dodge the hands while their trying to grab or smash you. Now if you attack the hands enough you'll see a U appear on them. Do not draw the U like a well U instead draw it upside down. This should stun the hands which will let you go back to using Slash on Akuro. Hopefully you can stop the beam of darkness before he can fire it. If he does fire it it's near impossible to dodge and will heal him. Now once you've stopped the attack go back to fighting him. He'll keep up the fire, ice and lightning thing so it'll be easy to stun him by following the earlier steps. Now just keep up attacking Akuro and dodging the hands until you get to the next cut scene.
