Blue Spear Monk Notes & Tips

  • Although this monk originates from the Misen Temple, and not that of Senpou, they bear a striking resemblance in their character models, although these appear to be more aggressive.

  • Be wary of the monk's sweeping attack, as the monk will sometimes immediately follow up with a thrust attack while the player is still in the air.  However, if the player has the skill Mid-Air Deflection, then this thrust attack can be deflected.  If successfully deflected, this will deal a huge amount of posture damage to the monk, usually enough to break posture completely, rewarding the player with an easy kill.
  • He can be found after fighting the 'White Spear Monk' in the wide clearing to the left of the structure that leads to the Hirata Estate - Main Hall, or after finding Owl for the first time if that's too complicated.

  • Though they are monks of a temple, they're unaffected by 'Divine Abduction,' reminding the player that these are a group separate from those on Mt. Kongo's Senpou Temple. This also explains why they are one of the only enemies, aside from those at the main hall's entrance in Senpou, that drop Gokan's Sugars.

  • After the first invasion of Ashina Castle, the Blue Monk next to the Old Grave's Idol will have an eavesdropping opportunity, with him mentioning his worries for Ashina; among other things.


Blue Spear Monk Story & Lore


If Ashina is invaded for the first time by the Interior Ministry

"Hmm...The tides will soon turn against this land."
"I never would've thought the Interior Ministry would become our enemy."
"If the old lord falls...we'll be defeated swiftly, no doubt."
"I'm wondering though, if that happens, will we still get paid?"
"There's no point in running away with an empty purse."

If Ashina is invaded for the second time by the Interior Ministry

([Buddhist Chanting] Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu...)


... Everyone.. Forgive me.

But nobody would put their life on the line for free...

All right, so... how do I make my escape...  ?




  • The Shinobi Hunters are Misen monks, people who have trained their body and core to an extreme level in order to properly combat Shinobi, as properly represented when they drop Gokan's Sugar, which boosts their core (posture).

      You can stealth kill them. You need to sprint and attack as soon as you see the red dot

      White monk is easy just wait up the path a bit for him to stop and turn back. Lock on him and sprint before he gets close to the blue monk.

      Blue monk will be chanting in the clearing so sneak to the left as far as you can and get behind him. You need to jump up on some bamboo logs. Lock on him and sprint. Once the dot appears, attack.

      Go back to the path idol. Sprint to the river and repeat.

      Easy early xp and sugar farm. If you miss run back to the river and jump in. Better to gate back to the idol if you are farming xp because it’s hard to fight them on the path.

        Essa wiki está desatualizada, eu acabei de fazer o teste bloqueando perfeitamente no ar nesse seu ataque e não quebrou a postura desse inimigo instantaneamente, a barra que aumenta é a mesma quantidade bloqueando no solo.

          just something i hope was mentioned anywhere, but that blue shinobi hunter in the second invasion of ashina castle, i like to lure him to where the soldiers are, he is trying to escape, but he really makes a difference in that fight, he is really op

            The shinobi hunter monks with white and blue robes are not of Senpou temple, but from the Misen temple, since they share the same moveset and desing as the miniboss shinobi hunter Enshin of Misen. They also drop Gokan's sugars that in their description state to originate from the Misen temple, unlike all other sugars that come from Senpou. Furthermore there is literally no shinobi hunters in Senpou temple so they most certainly are not from Senpou. Just because they are monks does not mean they all come from the same temple. Please fix this lore misinformation.

              Actually, the fact that he drops Gokan's Sugar indicates that he's NOT a Senpou Monk, but one from Misen Temple like the guys at Hirata Estate.
