The series takes place in 16th-century feudal Japan The original story Stealth Assassins revolves around two ninjas, Rikimaru and Ayame, who have both been members of the Azuma ninja clan since childhood The two ninjas serve the benevolent Lord Gohda and work for him as his secret spies to root out corruption and gather intelligence in his province However, the evil demonic sorcerer Lord Mei-Oh sought to destroy Lord Gohda, and using his demon warrior Onikage, wreaked havoc throughout Lord Gohda's province Although Mei-Oh was killed in the first game, Onikage appeared in all subsequent games except Fatal Shadows and Tenchu Z as the archenemy of the two ninja, especially Rikimaru Another major character who shows up frequently is Princess Kiku, Lord Gohda's daughter who often needs to be saved

Gameplayedit

The game perspective is third-person There are numerous items to help the ninja on his/her mission, but unlockable items can be acquired if the player gets a "Grand Master" rating at the end of the level by being as stealthy as possible Items and controls vary from game to game, but the gameplay is essentially the same throughout with the exception of Tenchu: Shadow Assassins Stealth is a very important element in the game, where players have to duck, crouch, and hide behind walls to avoid detection Enemies can be killed with one manoeuvre by using Stealth Kills, and a player can avoid detection by using the Ki meter The larger the number, the closer the player's position to an enemy If a player is spotted, the Ki meter will turn red, the enemy will alert everyone in the area, and the player is forced to fight hand-to-hand or hide somewhere until the enemies give up their search and resume their patrol routes
