Advancing through the story will eventually unlock the Alchemy option, which allows the player to create their own tools for missions. These tools are created by mixing herbs, mushrooms and geckos in medicine jars and then collect the mixture in spheres, medicine bottles or sushi for later use. Scrolls and permanent stat-increasing medicines can be created this way too.
While one alchemy pot is available as soon as alchemy is unlocked, more can be bought later. Ingredients can be bought, but for the rarer ones you will need to find them during missions.
It's recommended to take Collection or Reccoinassance missions if the player wants to gather ingredients quickly. Study the maps carefully, as many areas have "special spots" that may spawn rare or large numbers of ingredients.
Some stray arrow messages contain hints for some recipes and their effects.
There's no need to bake items for these combinations to work, just drop them into the pot until you get the desired result.
Note: When making potions and spheres, positive values have positive effects and negative values have destructive effects, so use positive values to make potions and use negative values to make spheres. Also, if you add a positive value to a negative one, or vice versa, it will take away from the total numerical value.

Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen Alchemy Edit
Alchemy remains mostly the same as before, with two new features:
- "Super" tools can be created via alchemy. These "super" items have stronger effects than their common counterparts.
- The Network Jar, which lets players use wireless connection to add an ingredient to a shared jar and extract multiple items at once from it.
