KUNOICHI's Final Stage has five known versions, with two sharing the same name. Besides the first two competitions, where the goal was to cross over to the other side of the obstacle, the goal afterward was to scale the giant tower within the time limit. Unlike its sister show SASUKE if a competitor does not reach the top in time, they are not dropped down suddenly, but are still harnessed for safety reasons. Reaching the top is referred to as kanzenseiha (完全制覇), translated roughly as "complete domination", and rendered on Woman of Ninja Warrior as "Total Victory". Of all the women to attempt the course, only nine have been admitted to the Final Stage with only three (Mizuno Yuko in the 2nd and 3rd competitons, Miyake Ayako in the 4th, 5th and 6th, and Komiya Rie in the 5th and 8th) being admitted more than once. As of the eighth tournament, three people: Miyake, Komiya, and Satomi Kadoi have achieved kanzenseiha, with Miyake doing so in three successive tournaments while Komiya and Satomi both doing it in the 8th competition.

Version 1 (KUNOICHI 1-2)

K2-final-stage

The Final Stage in KUNOICHI 1-2

In the first two tournaments, there were only three stages, afterwards, there was a separate stage used for the final. The competitors had to cross over a long, thin and somewhat unstable balance beam. The beam was 10 meters long, with a small, cylindrical bump in the middle and a triangular bump roughly 2/3 of the way across, called Tenkudou (天空道). It was not attempted in the first competition, as nobody was able to clear the Second Stage's first obstacle. In the second tournament, Yuko Mizuno and Watanabe Kazue were able to reach the Final Stage. Watanabe fell very early in the stage, while Mizuno was able to traverse roughly half. This may be due to a snowfall during the taping that made the beam very slick. The producers changed the course in the third tournament due to the previous course's extreme difficulty, and as a result the final stage was completely changed. This version of the final stage was untimed, the only final stage in either KUNOICHI or SASUKE to do so; also, it is the only Final Stage not to be in a tower form and the only Final Stage not to have been completed before being changed.

Version 2 (KUNOICHI 3-4)

K3-final-stage

The Final Stage in KUNOICHI 3-4

The course in KUNOICHI 3 was revamped, adding a new Third Stage and adopting the giant tower from SASUKE as the Final Stage. The new tower was a 10 meter (33ft) Hashigo Kabe (梯子壁), two sides of even ladder rungs one must climb up, somewhat similar to the Spider Climb, used on SASUKE's Final Stage at the time. It was followed by a 5 meter (16ft) Tenkubou (天空棒) to the top of the tower. The time limit was 35.0 seconds. In the third tournament a total of three women - Izumi Mika, Hanzawa Tomomi, and Mizuno Yuko - all attempted the Final Stage and all came very close to kanzenseiha. The closest of the three was Mizuno Yuko, who came 0.12 seconds away from kanzenseiha. However, in the fourth competition, Miyake Ayako competed for the first time and amazingly completed the final stage with four seconds to spare.

Version 3 (KUNOICHI 5)

In the fifth competition, a new Final Stage was created. The new Final Stage also consisted of a 10 meter Hashigo Tobi (梯子跳び), but this version of the ladder climb consisted of six individual ladders - three on each side - that the competitors must switch between while climbing up the tower. The second obstacle is still Tenkubou. Amazingly, Miyake was able to achieve kanzenseiha for a second time, therefore this version of the Final Stage only lasted one tournament.

Version 4 (KUNOICHI 6)

KUNOICHI's fourth incarnation of the Final Stage replaced the Dai Zetsukabe (大絶壁) with a 5 meter Tenkubou, similar to that in SASUKE's second stage. However, this version had a pattern of bricks, unlike that of its SASUKE predecessor. Somehow, Miyake Ayako was able to achieve kanzenseiha for an unprecedented third time, although this time she had a mere 0.66 seconds left on the clock. Similar to Version 3, this version only lasted for one tournament.

Version 5 (KUNOICHI 7)

The fifth version of the Final Stage consisted of a 12.5 meter Tenkumou (天空網) following another 5 meter Tenkumou, assuming it is a rope. This version was never attempted. It only lasted in KUNOICHI 7. If it is a rope, this is the first Final Stage tower in KUNOICHI to introduced a rope climbing obstacle.

Version 6 (KUNOICHI 8)

The new version of the Final Stage (aka Survival Climb) consists of a 8 metre Tetsu Bashi and 7 metre Climb Board. The time limit was 60 seconds. This proved to be relatively easily as all three competitors physically reached the end of the stage, but Arimatsu Tomomi grabbed the side of the second Climb Board, resulting in disqualification. Komiya Rie and Satomi Kadoi both earned kanzenseiha, with Kadoi beating the stage with 21 seconds to spare.

Version 7 (KUNOICHI 9)

Due to the height of the convention hall, the height of the Final Stage has to be remain the same from KUNOICHI 8, 15 metres. It consists of two obstacles, Sayu Hashigo (左右はしご), which was renamed from Hashigo Kabe, and Tsuna Nobori (綱登り). Izumi Hikari is the first competitor ever to attempt it but timed out while attempting Tsuna Nobori.
