Mist Noble is a Mini-Boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. This Complete Mist Noble Mini-Boss Guide gives you strategies on how to beat the Mist Noble easily, as well as tips, tricks and lore notes. 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 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.

      Haha all jokes aside I’ve literally felt bad enough to step back and give him some time to attack, he’s completely useless and does nothing.

        Single hardest boss in sekiro if not the single hardest boss of any Fromsoft game. What were they thinking with this guy? He has so many different attack chains that come in so fast it's near impossible to tell what he's about to do next.

        • i final got the phase 144444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444986738888888888888888888888888888888888888888333333333333337777777777777777777777777777775888884994000000000001

          only for him to ascend beyond his elden demon dark cinder fire shura mortal immortal PKCS MHS epic strong giga chad phase and then deleted my save of my playthrough, but he wasn't done there, he first deleted sekiro off my PC, then all my games and apps, then proceeded to blow up my computer, it took me 3 years, 3 months and 25 days to get too that phase! Not Happy!

            So I kinda like running through here farming XP on the spirits. They hit kinda hard but most are slow to aggro. Plus they repainted with out having to rest. If killing this guy makes them leave I may just let him keep his wax and play his flute forever.

              Last time I attempted this I ran out of calories in real life the fight was taking so long. My hands starting shaking and I eventually blacked out before phase 7. I ordered an IV off Amazon and am planning to try the fight again when it arrives later this week.

                Fun fact: the mist noble may be a super hard boss..but you have no idea how much power it truly holds. Its so powerful the entire trilogy of dark souls is just a illusion made by it. It is the one who created the hunters nightmare. He holds the title of elden lord. He is the lord of hollows. He is the slayer of demons….thats only me scratching the surface of his immeasurable outstanding power

                  For phase 9 when he pulls out 4 mortal blades and wields them and then summons gael and sister friede. you are gonna want to throw shurikens. He will deflect the shurikens back at you but this will lower his posture. While running away from gael and friede run over to him and try and deflect his 39 fury attacks (these will one shot you if you miss deflecting one) and now parry the shots from his ak47. run away repeat until hes to phase 10. This is probably the easiest way to beat his phase 9 it really isint that bad.

                    Just beat this guy and my hands are still shaking. I'm new to the "SoulsBorne" genre and after 4 hours of constant attempts to get to his 7th phase I finally did it. I have 2 kids and I'm a 48 year old guy who makes $35.03/hr plus bennies and I'm shaking I can't believe I beat this boss.

                      If you use the hollowslayer greatsword on phase 16, you can actually skip phase 17 go straight to 18 with a much easier moveset to contest

                        i mean, i guess you don't need a strategy video for this boss, (i don't even remember it) but the trailer in the video isn't even for mist noble, it's corrupted monk lol

                                Such a BS boss, made me quit Sekiro for months after killing me with his insane grab attacks. He probably has the worst hitboxes From Soft have ever made he could grab me from across the room, and BEHIND HIM. This boss seriously needs to be patched, I may not even buy Elden Ring if From Soft doesn't fix this impossible boss, it shows they're just trying to make their game "hard", without even caring for balancing or its accessibility for players. As a Games Journalist, it's my JOB to play games, and I can't even finish to write my article because of this broken boss. Literally unplayable.

                                      Is nobody even slightly curious how the most noble got to the forbidden woods from all the way up at the fountain palace? It makes no sense

                                        Made me quit the game, screw this overly difficult BS, who thought it was a good idea to give him 17 phases? and did they just have him summon every soulsborne boss because they ran out of ideas? how do you beat him?

                                          Oh. My. God. He is just too hard. In the 2nd phase, he summons Manus, Fume Knight, Midian, orphan of kos, not to mention Sword Saint Isshin. Quit Sekiri because of this guy.

                                            i wonder if grouping pinwheel,the congregation,deacons,witch of hemwick and the mist noble would make a decent challenge.

                                                  Hardest boss in the game. When he enters the second phase and pulls out all four swords as well as summoning the ghost of the Headless Ape in that tiny room it's impossible to do it without glitching yourself outside of the arena... Except then you discover that isn't a glitch, and they were kind enough to let you run past... Until you realise that if you have any other From Software game installed, it can spawn bosses from them too... Enjoy fighting Headless Ape, Headless, Shichimen Warrior, Sister Friede, Nameless King, Fume Knight, Artorias, Manus, and most terrifyingly of all, Mist Noble 2nd phase, all at once.

                                                      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.

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.

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!"

Way to hard for me dude...

                                                                                            • lol boss but to give him some credit. We already been in his fight since entered the forest, all those ghostly attack is his attack after all.

Seriously, this was over so fast I waited for something else to happen. Like "No, it can't be THAT easy. This must've been an illusion an the real boss is about to face***** me", but as I waited a full two minutes jack*****happened. It took me longer to type this out than it took to beat this boss. lol

He probably lived in Fountainhead Palace before and somehow fell off (waterfall?), then became depressed after realizing he'll never make it back home and has to live in a stinky and muddy forrest deep in the Ashina Depths. After a while he mastered the mist magic and managed to get himself a bunch of new ghostly friends. Now he could play his flute all day long for those guys to enjoy and so he was happy again. But one day there comes the big bad wolf and drops on him out of nowhere, hacking and slashing through his slug-like skin to end his life forever. Rest in peace weak little buddy.
