Sekiro Long Arm Centipede Sen-Un 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 its 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.

      Just failed my no death run on this guy. The centipedes in the adjacent room decided to shoot fire at me through a solid wall. Had to stand in it, because I was locked in the 10 hit combo.
      That's all I wanted to say. Now I'll go gouge my eyes out with a spoon.

          This fight can be over in less than 30 seconds:
          -drop in for stealth deathblow
          -deflect the first set of attacks
          -as soon as he gives an opening, use Firecracker then immediately follow with Dbl Ichimonji while he's stunned
          -deflect second set of attacks
          -his posture should break at somepoint during the second string (if not repeat firecracker + ichimonji until it does)

            1st play through was a nightmare. . . 2nd playthrough I destroyed it so fast my jaw was left agape.
            Spark Axe wrecks his **** too.

              There's been an update for sure. This boss now has a third set of attacks. It comes after the perilous sweep after the three hit combo. It's so he can catch you in the air after you dodge the sweep. Also, he barely takes any posture damage now. Maybe I'm missing some upgrades that would make this fight easy.

                This guy is so easy as long as you clear out the smaller enemies. Run away and come back for a stealth plunge and then just deflect until his posture is broken. Ridiculously easy.

                  Watching the video on this fight was painful. Just so everyone knows you can instantly deathblow the enemies around the centipede just by jumping at them.

                    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.

                                      One of the easiest bosses (found him at two locations so far), delfect x10, jump, jump kick then deathblow

                                        That crow feather teleport thingy just wrecks him (and lots of other baddies, like glutton and drunkard). Just pop it and enjoy the "nothing personnel kid" free hits
