Mini-Bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice feature multiple health bars, and they are much more challenging than your typical enemies. (note: this definition would not consider Blazing Bull a miniboss.) They have a host of different attacks, some of which you cannot deflect, making them deadly. These Enemies do not respawn once killed, and they drop some of the best loot in the game.

      Just beat General a-hole. I've played all the Dark Souls and this game is mad tough. Reflexes have to be on cue like crazy...also when I see that swipe unblockable move coming my quick reflex makes me jump away instinctively instead of at the guy to kick his head and take a swipe, working on overriding that now.

        While it's very clever to make it so that every page referencing Snake Eyes Shirafuji auto-redirects to the Shirahagi page: the Wiki *still* needs to be changed so that the Snake Eyes Shirafuji page and tempalte aren't redirects. The enemies are incredibly similar, yeah; but *each* mini-boss has their own unique page even if they share character models and similar movesets.

          There should be separate pages for Shirahagi and Shirafuji, just as there are separate pages for Tokujiro and Juzou + every other mini-boss that is shares the same model but is fought in a different place.

                  After you defeat Owl at the top of the castle, eavesdrop on Kuro from in the library where he was standing before when you were getting the incense items, then talk to Emma. Rest at a sculpture, go behind the temple where the Sculptor is residing and eavesdrop on the conversation between him and Emma, and talk to her again. She'll give you a second bell that will change the estates. <- Another mini-boss, also 2 prayer beads there.

                    I dunno if it's up here or not, but there seems to be a boss in the big pond behind Ashina castle. I can't find a way to lure it out, but you can lock onto it besides the 2 eels in the pond with it
