Mist Noble Story & Lore
- Okami, written as "淤加美 (okami)" in the Japanese version, is a dragon deity of water, rain and snow from Japanese mythology. According to Kojiki, the god was born from the blood of the slain god Kagutsuchi. The name can be alternatively written as "龗 (okami)" and "闇龗 (kuraokami)", which all hold the meaning of "dragon". It's likely that the Divine Dragon (called "桜竜/sakura-ryu" - Sakura Dragon in Japanese) is inspired by Kuraokami.

Sekiro Mist Noble Strategy Write-up
This Mini-Boss can be defeated in mere seconds using a Drop-Down Deathblow. As the boss attempts to stand after the plunge, just use normal attacks until it dies. It's more than likely you'll never see it do anything other than take hits from you. Even if you let it act, all it will do is make slow, feeble swings with its fists that do almost no damage. Parrying its strikes is surprisingly tricky due to being very slow and over-telegraphed compared to almost every other enemy, but it is also completely pointless because it will only get the chance to attack if you let it.
