Sekiro General Naomori Kawarada Strategy Writeup

Approach the general towards the higher ground on the left and perch yourself on the gate near him. Jump down and hit R1 when a red circle appears. This will trigger a deathblow and will make the fight a bit easier. You can deflect his jumping slash or sidestep it. Avoid playing long range as he will coat himself in white and regain posture undoing most of your hard work. Continue blocking his attacks and getting an attack in when you see an opening to defeat General Naomori Kawarada.

      Despite all the **** you give to him for being the first boss of the game. standing guard as the first line of defense all by himself is pretty badass. The other generals all have goons with him

        remembering fond times where this guy kicked me into the dirt until i quit the game and started another run like a year later

          Super lazy way to cheese him is to perma spam jump on his head and attack, at some point he will make an attack that will throw you down from the air and RIGHT after that he usually makes a thrust attack which should be Mikiri Counter'd, then continue with jumpspam. If your lucky he doesnt make another air attack and he should be dead by then. Or just heal right after you counter'd his thrust attack but while doing so he regenerates posture so i usually took the gamble.

            If you come at this guy with your knowledge of every other Soul's game, you're gonna have a bad time. "I'm just gonna roll spam, and wreck him." No... No you're not.
            Honestly, that's what I did. Damn near threw the game in the trash. Glad I didn't. Once I took a step back and learned the posture system and counter methods, took him down in like 10 seconds, without a scratch. Awesome game once the mechanics click.

              Ngl I didn't even see the first time playing, until I came back after the first ministry raid just to see if things changed

                You can cheese this guy with fistful of ash or firecrackers. Take the high ground around him until you're on top of the gate, then jump and do a stealth deathblow. Stun him with ash or firecrackers, hit him twice, quickly stun again, hit twice, repeat. Easy peasy.

                  Why not change this guy's name to “Steaming Crock of Horse*****Dodge to either side, or even BEHIND him and he automatically reorients himself so he’s always facing you AND changes the trajectory of his sword on the fly - in the middle of one of his GIGANTIC sword swings. Pretty neat trick.

                  • The cannon of the flame and the ability of the living force seem to be very effective against this and the other generals, but I still need to do more tests.

                    • so in my fight with him the loaded axe was my friend, stealth deathblow to start then just kinda kept smacking him in the face with axe and then did a few slashes and he was done for, fealt way to easy tbh, at least after running in headlong trying too be aggressive with sword

                      • Aggressive play will be your friend for this guy. Deflecting him doesn't do a lot of posture damage, and you will drag the fight out, giving him more opportunities to do massive damage. Just stealth attack him and then get aggressive. You can often hit him four or five times in a row and he'll deflect each time, but he'll lose a ton of posture. After two or three volleys of blows, he'll be done.
