Gameplay

No More Heroes's most prominent gameplay is "hack and slash" action using a beam katana in which the player character Travis Touchdown does battle with enemies and bosses. The combat is based around the use of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck; the nunchuck is mostly used for movement while the Wii remote is used for attacks. Almost all attacks (which are divided between strong sword attacks and weak punch attacks) are done using the buttons on the remote; motion controls are only used for wrestling moves which are executed at the end of combos. Killing enemies also gives the player a chance to use the roulette wheel; if three matching icons are gained on the roulette wheel, various effects (mostly special moves) are activated.

Outside of the main action stages (the "ranking fights"), the player can do more leisurely activities around the town of Santa Destroy or in Travis' room in the Motel No More Heroes, such as shopping, training, or finding collectibles hidden around the city. The player also has to take on side jobs or action missions in order to raise enough LB dollars to buy their way into the next ranking fight. The game proceeds with this structure, alternating between the over-the-top action stages and the mundane reality of normal life in Santa Destroy.
