This is how i beat the puppet mastewr first i would use naruto and send sadow clones out, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A LOT OF CHAKRA MEDICINE!!! now just send out shadow clones and get the puppet angry. then you will see that if you hit the puppet it will do 1 point damadge. ords will appear on the steps around the puppet there are four orbs hit them till the orbs go down and stop glowin. Then the puppet will be defensless that when you can attack with shadow clones send out a lot!!! Keep doin that till it runs out of life. it will regenerate which stinks but there will be no more orbs so send shadow clones and when it shots its dak blade shadow thing run around the puppet*and youl be okay. Just send shadow clones so youll save life. The puppet will make like a pad with signs that fill the stage. run to the side lones so you wont get hit if you get hit youll die if you do get hit make sure you have revives. do all of that and youll be just fine. HOPE THIS HELPS!!!
1: avoid the guy. he's annoying, but almost every enemy can be avoided long enough for them to stop for a second.
2: when he*does*stop, go in for the attack. if at all possible, with Naruto, dodge his attacks and land so that you're behind him when he finally does stop moving for about a second. then, hit him with rasengan, it doesn't need to be charged.
3. after enough rasengans if you're out of chakra you can use the 2nd step to just attack when you've got the chance.
this pretty much works for me for anyone and anything i'm playing against, so i hope it helps you ^^;*
