Divine Confetti


 Confetti imbued with a divine blessing made for driving away apparitions.

The paper is made ceremoniously, whereby pulp is spread thin using water from the exalted Fountainhead.
          As the gods bless the waters, so too will the confetti bless one who basks in its touch, allowing attacks to connect with apparition-type enemies.

Divine Confetti is a Quick Item in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It is used to provide Sekiro the ability to attack ghost-like enemies with powerful attacks distinguished by a bright purple glow on Kusabimaru.

 Divine Confetti Usage

Where to Find Divine Confetti

Ashina Outskirts, and the Memorial Mobs for 300 sen each after defeating Corrupted Monk at the Fountainhead Palace and receiving the Dragon's Tally Board.

Before unlocking the unlimited confetti, you can find them at:

  • Small chance to drop from Blue-Robed Samurai  near the Upper Tower - Antechamber Sculptor's Idol located in Ashina Castle. (Chance increased in Patch 1.03).
  • Old Hag - You may use up to 3 Mibu Balloons (any type) one at a time near her to get an Ungo's Sugar, Ako's Sugar, and a Divine Confetti. All 3 balloons may be of the same type.
  • Ashina Outskirts. - 1x Located just before the Underbridge Valley Sculptor's Idol in Ashina Outskirts.
  • Hirata Estate - From the Hirata Estate - Main Hall Idol. Go around the burning buildings and defeat a flaming archer, then grapple onto the rooftops to get a better view. The archers in this area have high visibility range and will spot you quickly, so plan to move swiftly. You can spot some items in the rock islands of the pond, but wait before going there. Walk the entire rooftop and drop when it ends, then use the underfloors to double back and get into the main state. Here you'll find 2x Spirit Emblem, and 1x Divine Confetti. Be careful that an Axe enemy waits behind the confetti.
  • Hirata Estate - After passing Juzou, the fog gate is now lifted and you can enter the main door ahead. Go left to obtain the items. Defeat 2 enemies and go left to pick up the oil. Hug the wall here, as it is a Shinobi Door, on the other side you will find 1x Mibu Balloon of Wealth and 1x Light Coin Purse. Further down the area there is 2x Divine Confetti and a Treasure Chest containing 1x Prayer Bead.
  • Ashina Depths - 5x Water Mill Sculptor's Idol, cross the bridge near O'Rin of the Water and follow the path to reach a house with a mob of villagers standing in front of it. There is a place to sneak under the house to the right of the locked door. Interact with the revolving floorboards under house. The item is on the floor in front of the broken statue.
  • Sunken Valley - Located in a small camp filled with Poisonous Lizards past the arena of the Long-Arm Centipede Giraffe.
  • Sunken Valley Passage -  Inside the Serpent's Cave, you'll find 3x nearby a ledge that will allow you to grapple towards Ashina Depths. 
  • Mibu Village - 5 can be found by the beheaded Buddha statue near the drinking NPC, and one can be found inside a house before reaching the Watermill Idol.
  • Fountainhead Palace - Inside the building of the noble courtyard, 2 can be found next to the hold in the ground where Sekiro can dive into.
  • Fountainhead Palace - From the Flower Viewing Idol, 3 can be found hidden behind the pagoda.
  • Fountainhead Palace - 2 can be looted next to Pot Noble Koremori.


Divine Confetti Notes & Tips

  • Can be paired with Ako's Sugar/Spiritfall to increase damage against all enemies, particularly useful in speedruns to reach the stagger threshold of certain bosses faster. 
  • It also deals chip damage, allowing you to deal vitality damage to a blocking enemy.
  • Certain attacks will negate the Divine Confetti buff, notably the Phoenix's Lilac Umbrella attack with the Projected Force skill (itself a very strong anti-apparition attack) as well as that of the Suzaku's Lotus Umbrella (note that the two non-elemental versions of the umbrella do not overwrite Divine Confetti).
  • Entering an area where Sekiro sheathes his sword will also negate the buff.
  • Performing a lightning reversal will negate the buff (needs confirmation).
  • The effects of Divine Confetti will persist underwater if cast before diving in. This provides a large damage buff against the underwater Headless fights that can be encountered after acquiring Mibu Breathing Technique.
  • Since the buff only affects Kusabimaru, using Combat Arts such as Prayer Strikes - Exorcism, or Senpou Leaping Kicks won't gain the benefit from it. High Monk combat art does have sword slashes, but they're few and performed at the end of the combo.
  • Since the Sabimaru combo incorporates the Kusabimaru in it's attacks, you can still benefit from the effects of the Divine Confetti. Specially useful on the Improved Sabimaru (and it's upgraded variants) alternate combo, which uses both swords at the same time.

        I keep getting this bug during boss fights where the Confetti will run out super early. It always happens when i'm using shinobi tools like the lilac loaded umbrella or the Mist Raven. Anyone know what might be going on?

          Why was the note about it applying a flat damage buff removed? Multiple people in the comments have tested it and say it applies a small damage boost to EVERYTHING, it's just that it deals more to apparitions.

            The word confetti is translated bad because they are not small piece of papers (coriandoli), they are sweets, but is possible to do confetti also with coriander seeds

              Idk if it's already mentioned somewhere, but instead of the the balloons in front of the hag, you can dispel the bell demon. If you stand by her and use the demon to dispel the curse, she will say something like "yes, that's how you pray" and reward you for your devotion with one of the sugars or confetti. Hope this saves some balloons for some people

                this gives a minimum 25% dmg buff vs all enemies. Increases to up to 37.5% bonus dmg vs apparitions, it's something like 31-32% vs undead. Someone else can add it to the article if they want I'm sick of trying to contribute to this wiki.

                  "It also deals chip damage, allowing you to deal posture damage to a blocking enemy." Enemies already take posture damage when they block your attacks. Is this supposed to say 'vitality damage'?

                    You do NOT, I repeat, Do NOT need to use Divine Confetti to hit O'Rin or the Illusion Corrupted Monk. The only enemies Divine Confetti allows you to hit are Headless, and the Shichimen Warriors. O'Rin is always damageable, but will eventually become Ethereal to prevent stunlocking. Illusion Corrupted Monk is NOT an Apparition, and can be damaged without Divine Confetti. She is vulnerable to Snap Seeds three times before becoming immune. If Divine Confetti does anything, it's a VERY minor damage boost. Something that is not going to help you out much in a casual playthrough due to the usually slower paced fights resulting in you only getting a few hits in before the buff runs out.

                      I've heard that Demon of Hatred and the boss of Hirata Revisted (not naming them here just to avoid spoiling it for anyone) take increased damage from this. Is this because Confetti just gives a generic damage buff or are these two treated as Apparitions/supernatural in some way (as the boss fought in Hirata 2 is a memory rather the real deal)?

                        Divine Confetti is supplied by almost every single merchant after beating the True Monk for 300 Sen, someone needs to edit the page and remove clutter from listing npc's separately, and missing some. I confirmed those NPCs to be selling it: 1- Crow’s Bed Memorial 2- Battlefield Memorial Mob 3- Fujioka the Info Broker 4- Dungeon Memorial Mob 5- Shugendo Memorial Mob 6- Toxic Memorial Mob 7- Exiled Memorial Mob NPCs that don't get updated stores or I couldn't check. 1- Pot Noble Harunaga (No changes) 2- Anayama the Peddler (Not available in my playthrough) 3- Blackhat Badger (Closed store) And of course the other items unlocked with the confetti are also available at all the stores INFINITELY: 1- Divine Confetti 2- Eal Liver 3- Snap Seed 4- Scrap Iron 5- Black Gunpowder

                          Divine Confetti also buffs damage against Sword Saint Isshin all phases and Corrupted monk. I think it also works on Guardian ape phase 2 and possibly True Monk fight (Haven't checked that)

                            For me the blue samurais only started dropping confetti after I acquired the Virtuous Deed skill in the temple arts. It improves item drop rates

                              Tanto + Purple Umbrella + Umbrella Slash = 0 confetti needed, not even for the woman I'm in front of the last boss and I have 10 confetti left without ever farming them and having done all of the apparition bosses. The tanto drops from one of them, but you don't need confetti for that boss fight. And the 2 Headless in the water where the umbrella doesn't work did not require confetti either for some reason.
