Here's some tips and guide for the Phantom Castle (PvP) feature of the mobile game: NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Blazing.
The Phantom Castle- Phantom Castle is a limited time event where players can join with their top 3 ninjas to challenge other player's teams. Depending on your progress, you can gain huge rewards including the featured ninja!
Phantom Castle Stamina- PC Stamina Regenerates every 1 hour.
- Refills whenever you Lvl up your Ninjas Rank, so make sure to spend them all first before leveling up, especially early game.
- Can be instantly refreshed by using 1 Ninja Pearl.
- Gaining points will increase your Rank and is necessary to reach higher floors.
Phantom Castle Point System
Phantom Castle Start and Expiration- Usually starts every 1st week of the month for 7 days.
- This is the most important thing, before the time expires, try to reach at least Rank 10,000 to get the featured ninja. Some Phantom Castle will let you get the featured ninja once you reach the 100th floor.
- Note that sometimes, the event will also end earlier if there is a scheduled maintenance!
How To Gain Chakra During Battle
Starting Chakra- Each ninja will get a 3 starting Chakra, so that means that if your ninja's ninjutsu requires 4 or less Chakra, you can fire them right away from their first turn.
- Note that the number of starting Chakra depends on the event rules.
Chakra Regeneration- Each ninjas can regenerate 1 Chakra during their turn.
Chakra Restoration Bottles- Users can now restore their Chakra in battle with Chakra restoration bottles. Locations on the map, as well as timing for when they will increase in strength, are random.
- Small Bottles: +1 Chakra to the one who picked it up.
- Medium Bottles: +2 Chakra to the one who picked it up.
- Large Bottles: +1 Chakra to all 3 ninjas.
Doing 15+ Hits "Ultra Combo"- This is where multi hit AoE ninjas shine, because if you can do at least 15 hits combo, all 3 ninjas will get an additional Chakra!

Enemies Special Stats and Turns
Special Stats For Enemy Teams- Attack damages of enemies are greatly reduced but they will get 10x more HP.
Number of Turns- Current total turns: 16
- Your 1st ninja can have a total of 6 turns, then 5 turns each for the other two.
Element Counters- As usual, it's best that you attack targets that are weak against your ninja's elemental affinity.
- Note that enemies will always attack their nearest enemy, so use this to your advantage. How? here's some examples:
Tanking- Before you move your ninja, always check the element of the next enemy that will attack after your turn. If for example his element is "Heart" and your current ninja this turn has a "Body" type element, then just to move him anywhere but making sure that he is the closest one to that target.
- You can also do this while attacking.
Avoiding High Damages- Same example above, but this time you current ninja this turn has a "Skill" type element which is weak to "Heart". The best thing to do here is to move him away, or behind someone that can tank.
- You can also do this while attacking.
Recommended Ninjas and Teams- There are so many team formations and strategy that can be used but here's some key factors that you should consider.
Ninjas with Low Chakra Ninjutsus- Since we are only given a limited number of turns, it's best to end battles as quickly as possible by using ninjas that can spam their ninjutsus.
- Refer to our separate guide here: Best AoE Attacker Ninjas - Damage Rankings
Ninjas with High Number of Hits- Like I said above, doing 15+ combos will generate Chakra, so also consider taking ninjas that can do multiple hits.
- Refer to our separate guides here:

- Best Single Target Attacker Ninjas - Damage Rankings
Full Attack Teams- If you want to use a Full Attacker team (with some disable effects), just follow the battle strategies above and avoid stacking up too close to each other.
- Full attack teams are awesome, but it might not be always great for most F2P players, especially when they reach higher Ranks.
Ninjas With Attack Boosts- Example Ninja: Naruto - Rasengan Mastered.
Team with Healer/s- These ninjas are very useful, especially when you are up against a stronger team. Some drawbacks are: You'll find your team getting stuck up each other more often and you can't defend your spot or rank well.
- Example Teams:
- 1 Healer and 2 Attackers
- 2 Healers and 1 strong AoE Attacker
- These are nice teams for F2P players even against stronger teams. Try to get the farmable ninja: Rock Lee - Never Gives Up from Emergency Missions limited event. Healers like Kabuto and/or Shizune for example can be easily re-rolled from Summons.
- Choose a medical-nin with a Ninjutsu and Field Skill that can heal.
