Mist Noble 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 (this mini-boss is an exception), and they drop some of the best loot in the game.


Mist Noble Location

  • Hidden Forest: Found in the abandoned temple in the misty area just after the Hidden Forest idol. Can be accessed by the second floor, through a hole in the wall.
  • This boss is not optional. May Buddha have mercy on you, because Mist Noble won’t.


Mist Noble Rewards

  • 1 x Lump of Grave Wax
  • Dispels the mist in the area, opening up the road to Mibu Village.
  • Once the mist in the area is dispersed, all of the ghosts in the area disperse as well.
  • 3470 XP without Kuro's Charm (NG+7)


Mist Noble Notes & Tips

  • It appears to be of the same species as The Mist Noble are encountered as normal enemies in the Fountainhead Palace, only wearing much nicer robes.
  • You may feel very bad after killing him or become confused.
  • The easiest mini-boss in the game to beat. His design became a joke among the fans.

Mist Noble Story & Lore

  • They are called 淤加美 (okami) in Japanese, derived from one of the ancient spellings of Kuraokami, a dragon deity of rain and snow from Japanese mythology, born from the blood of the slain god Kagutsuchi. More modern spellings are a bit more obvious as to what the names supposed to mean: 龗 (okami) means "water dragon" and 闇龗 (kuraokami) means "dark water dragon." It's likely that the Divine Dragon (called the Sakura Dragon in Japanese) is inspired by Kuraokami.

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.

        His difficulty is not in his fighting capability. His difficulty lies in the mist he created that makes that forest feel like a f******g hell.

            Get ready to have dragonrot spread everywhere. This boss is way harder than any other. Recommend to use any buffs you can on yourself as its speed is very fast. This boss can also one shot you, not even kidding. I recommend using the strongest sugars you can before starting the fight. Good luck, you'll need it. You'll be stuck for about a couple days or so.

              Wow... the information on this page is COMPLETELY wrong...

              I didn’t even feel the slightest bit bad after slaughtering him lol. Dying 100+ times to ******* bosses has hardened my cold, dead heart...

                My brain: wtf is this fearsome creature? Looks like an alien. Well time to die 50 times.
                *Prepares inventory*:gourd, pellet, Ungo sugar, ako sugar, devine confetti
                "Hesitate and you loose" drops down first deathblow. Slashes 4 times second deathblow.
                My brain: what just happened?

                  The real challenge is simply reaching the Noble. Once you've toughed your way through that Goddamned mist, the Noble is a victory lap.

                    I'm SORRY mist noble, I didn't know you were that frail!! You had TWO health bars and I was afraid you were going to turn me into paste after the drop-down deathblow when I panic slashed you to bits!!

                    I really wish I got to see what you did if I just dropped down to greet you.. even if it was to pull a brainsucker on me.

                      Sorry I’m late to the party y’all. But idk how FromSoftware can make this boss move faster than I can swing my god dam sword... I tried everything and this SOB can’t be hit. I had the whole room on fire and guess what? Bastard laughed. FFS!

                        Screw this ****ty game and it's ridiculous bosses, I've probably died 50 times to this robed **** and I still can't get past the first phase, were they ****-faced while they were designing this fight? He makes Genichiro look like a toddler in comparison

                          Literally spent a good few minutes circling around the ceiling worrying about a plan of attack and what it might do. I even let it land a hit on me cus I mistimed a deflect XD

                            I love how they gave him 2 deathblow markers, try and make you feel guilty for beating up a helpless illusionist

                                Feels bad, man. I came up to this fight prepared for a serious life-or-death encounter (so, a typical Tuesday for Sekiro). Munched on a Gaachin's sugar so they won't see me comin', only for me to drop down, take his first life then hack until he was down. Even then I had my Loaded Umbrella up 'cause I figured, "Nah, this ain't it." Was left staring at his body as the mist cleared, and I wept. "What were you doing, grandpa? This wasn't the game for you!"
