Long Arm Centipede Sen-Un (長手の百足・仙雲, Long-Arm Centipede - Sen'un) 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.

Long-arm Centipede Sen-Un Lore

  • Their bandages are probably to treat lesions caused by imbibing the Rejuvenating Waters, much like those shown by Zombies of the Abandoned Dungeon Zombie Patient. In previous titles, bandages were signs of lesions caused by either or the Scourge of Beasts Scourge Of Beasts Afflicted or Undeath Undead Prisoner. Both of these pathologies involve necrosis, losing one's mind, and potentially mutating. The Rejuvenating Waters corrupt men to the point that they no longer live as men, instead they become monsters incapable of feeling pain or fear. In the Dark Souls franchise, both centipedes and bandages carry associations with Pyromancy.
  • Centipede long arms are the chiefs of the centipedes. These centipedes will seek out a leader and often change loyalty. Long Arm Centipedes have their name from their large talon-like weapons.

Strategy Writeup

Long-Arm Centipedes are agile mini-bosses with low posture. They perform attacks with multiple consecutive slashes which can allow the player to inflict massive posture damage to the boss given they are able to deflect the attacks..

Before you start the fight make sure to clear the enemies on the ceiling rafters so they can't throw firebombs at you during the fight. Mini-Centipedes, similar to Lizards, can be deathblown simply by locking on to them and jumping into the air. There are multiple Mini-Centipede's in Sen-Un arena that should be cleared out as well before fighting the boss. After clearing the enemies, exit the temple to de-aggro Long-Arm Centipede Sen-Un. Re-enter the temple and perform a plunging attack on Sen-Un to remove one of his health bars.

Long-arm Centipede bosses have two attacks: a 10-hit combo and a 3-hit combo. The 10-hit combo is denoted by the boss raising their right arm (player's left) then performing 10 slashes in a 4-5-1 pattern; deflecting the final slash will cause the Long-Arm Centipede to retreat then perform a perilous sweep attack. The 3-hit combo is denoted by the boss raising their left arm (player's right) then performing 3 slashes immediately followed by a perilous sweep attack. His only Perilous attack, an unblockable sweep can be countered with a jump kick for bonus posture damage.

 The boss can usually have it's posture broken in as little as two sets of 10-hit deflects and jump kicks opening it for a deathblow.

The Shinobi Firecracker is very effective in stunning this boss allowing you to inflict vitality damage. Using the Firecracker too quickly in succession will not stun the boss and leave you open to attacks.

If Wolf's posture is failing, remember to make distance and keep block up to recharge posture quickly.

After doing a sneak Deathblow to Sen-Un, while he is getting up run towards the other enemies on the ground and eliminate them. Wait for Sen-Un to start his attacks and simply deflect them as his posture bar fills quickly. Players may use Shonobi Firecrackers to stun him and Flame Vent to deal heavy damage if they so choose.

      So much easier than the first one, must be because of the added prayer beads and memories I had between this guy and his counter-part. Broke his posture in one combo and one goomba stomp on his sweep. First one I tried 10+ times because I couldn't stop from getting posture broken and couldn't break his posture without two-3 perfect deflected combos, and I wasn't taking out his first health bar with stealth.

        When I deflect his attacks, his posture does not break in any way. Is this a bug? (Yes, I know he's a centipede)

          I cleared the room of minor mobs using shurikens and then left the room to re-agro the boss. Came back in, did a plunging deathblow and the wacked him repeatedly with the axe, it was over very quick. No deflections needed. My attack power was 15 though..... which helps :)

            I wish the fights with these guys were longer. They’re so cool looking, and the satisfaction is real with deflecting their flurries of attacks.

              Maybe I'm just lucky but I found him easier than dealing with even those blue samurais. I just picked off the adds as best I could then just deflect spammed his flurry attacks. His unblockable always seemed to be a sweep so just jump it and jump on his head. He builds up posture damage really fast.

                Don't use any prosthetic tool, thats just stupid idea, you deal way too low damage on him. His weakpoint is his posture, but deals high posture damage aswell. So all you need to do is to use Gokan's sugar before you jump on him. He is dead in 10 seconds, just deflect his combo 3 times.

                  Okay but honestly what is this disgusting abomination? The Centipede priests are nasty and all but at they resemble something, this dude is just a deformed wolverine with a few coathangers fused into him.

                    Found easy way to win for people.who fight him in gun fort before sunken valley passage with small room; You litterally just need to spam parry as he attacks this will raise his posuter meeter fast and long before yours and then he will stagger. so just parry every single hit for a super easy win. now im starting to understand the combat system more cus of this fight.

                      If you're having problems with him, count out the number of his attacks and use a fully charged spring-load Flame Vent on him once he reaches 10. It will deal high damage and set him on fire. Run away from him until the fire is out again and repeat until he's at 1 HP and ready for a deathblow.
