  • 2x speed
  • 3x speed
  • 4x speed (if you cant do notes with almost no space between, then this makes them have bigger gaps, but move faster, same as above)
  • ninja (if you cant read Japanese DON'T DO IT! it makes all the cues invisible, and you need to read the note, to know what to click)
  • Swap (this is very good, if you find blue is easier to do, then all the reds are now blues, and vice versa)

Songs
  • if their missing from that list, that means you need em, and this is how to get them, their the BLUE 2x notes, not the red ones, those are unimportant for the most part.
  • get 100, 150, and 200 crowns
  • get 100, and 200 gold crowns
  • drum points *top right on the home screen) up to 99,999 which gets all the 2,000 songs

mods
  • Swap red for blue (50 crowns on Easy *flower stages*)
  • Ninja (50 crowns on normal *leafs)
  • 4x speed (50 crowns on hard *tree's*)
  • i dont know if oni gets one =\


Oni
  • i dont know how i got it, i think its play time, or something, it didn't mention, just play and you'll unlock it randomly


titles
  • they are earned for doing ___ or winning ____ in dojo mode, they as of yet HAVE DONE NOTHING, i just earn more stages, or more red notes nothing important yet, but i think there's a costume or something at the end.
  • wood (tier 1)
  • red glossy (tier 2)
  • blue (tier 3)
  • orange, looks the same as the lower image you see (tier 4)
  • they might go for a while, but that's where i am, and they all mean something but i wasn't taking notes, and its important to know your title.


Costumes
  • you can get these 2 ways that i have seen story, or crowns, story happens every now and then above every 2 - 4 levels, till higher. here are the ones i know. this also changes his voice too.
  • Baby
  • preschool
  • elementary school
  • Banchou (delinquent)
  • Robot/mech (same as when you let the game auto play, or when you get a prize for drum points)
  • armored (its black and really odd lol)
  • normal drum/don (like you see on the box, its just generic)
  • golden armor (its old, with wings, you get it for getting 150 crowns)
  • there might be more, but these are all i got, and have heard of, like i said if you rewatch the movie with the costumes picture at the bottom, you wear that costume, over whatever one you're currently wearing.


i hope this helps, if anyone has a question just ask, but i think this will help make some or maybe no one, have a bit more of a import friendly time with this amazing game.
