Leader Shigenori Yamauchi (組頭・山内重則, Group Leader - Yamauchi Shigenori) is a Mini-Boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Mini-Bosses are special Enemies that are uniquely named and have 2 or more health bars. This means they require at least 2 Deathblows in order to kill, they are generally much more difficult than normal enemies, and they drop some of the best loot in the game.

Leader Shigenori Yamauchi Notes & Tips

  • Don't be too aggressive, as his overhead slash has Poise and he will still hit you, even if you think you can stagger him.
  • He is voiced by Mick Lauer, who is probably more known as the internet animator RicePirate.

Strategy Writeup

This mini-boss is rather easy. You simply want to swing once and then deflect his attack, back away and repeat. Avoid attacking too much, as his overhead slash has poise, and will hit you regardless. Rinse and repeat.

      Meh, kinda a lame mini boss. I get that it supposed to be easy as in the tutorial, but it leaves no lore or even a viable reward. Though I would say it is a great introduction to proper deflection and combat, it does not leave any sort of taste in the players mouth.

        I cant find him after the first part of the game so I just lost a prayer bead(unless I did but it doesnt say what bosses youve killed, not that I know of at least). Just kill him, prayer beads are very good and its an easy miniboss so just go for it.
