Phantom Kunai


 A kunai used by Lady Butterfly that can be used to upgrade the Loaded Shuriken.

A ringing sound is heard when the kunai is thrown, and phantom butterflies appear in the kunai's trail.

Since childhood, Lady Butterfly had accumulated much experience in Usui's forest, far from civilization along Tozan Trail. His forest is filled with mist and mystifications, making it ideal for training in illusion techniques.

Phantom Kunai is a special Upgrade Material in Sekiro: Shadows Die TwicePhantom Kunai is used to create a new prosthetic tool from the Loaded Shuriken.

      • When you want to spam a mini bosses health down use these over the Gouging Top. Most things can't or won't block the butterflies charge attack. Charged Gouging top gives twice as many hits per total emblam but it's all chip damage (30%) after the first hit. So gouging top does 60% of it's potential damage in vompary to the twice as expensive phantom kunai. So even with 10% less damage phantom kunai do about 30% more damage per batch of spirit emblems (your whole supply maybe 16) to an enemy that guards after the first hit. 16 spirit emblams: 10 Damage per charged spinning top 9 damage per charged phantom kunia Gouging Top is (10x0.3)x15+10=55 damage. Kunai is (10x0.9)x16=72 damage. Lazukite gouging top is on a whole other level and for spamming boss health nothing comes close to empowered mortal blade .

          Quickstep. Treat the Mibu one like a Dark Souls fight and just iframe thru her attacks. Floating passage has good dps and she has large windows

              I found out that using the charged attack on this and the Ceremonial Tanto will let you cheese some mini-bosses by knocking their vitality all the way down

                This upgrade is worthless mainly because of the cost in emblems,shurikens is the tool you use as a gap closer or preventing enemy posture regen,damage quickly becomes absolutely irrelevant.

                  Honestly, this upgrade isn't very good. The butterflies it summons have a tendency to miss enemies a lot of the time, and more importantly this requires 2 emblems to use instead of 1. You're better off throwing 2 gouging shuriken than throwing 1 of these.

                    Fastest upgrade "route" to the Kunai's is as follows: Spinning Shurikens (1st, iron ?/?) --> Spring-loaded Axe (2nd, Iron 5/5) --> Aged Feather-Mist Raven (3rd, magnetite 2/2, lump of wax 1/1, gunpowder 2/2) --> Phantom Kunai's (4th, 1000 sen, 3000 sen mat from merchant, Magnetite 3/3, Wax 3/3, Iron 6/6)

                        In order to actually upgrade your kunai you have to kill gyoubou. Then you get an item which allows you to upgrade your prostetic.

                          What if you killed the merchant in the past? He told me where to get the mist raven feather, so once I got it I went back to talk with him. He didn’t say anything else so I killed him thinking he would drop something. Then I read about how he becomes a merchant in the future. Why would they allow me to attack him and not other important npc’s? That’s so stupid.

                            Got this phantom kunai, scrap iron, and black gunpowder but can't do anything with them. Wtf? The Sculptor only gives me 2 options when talking to him; talk or fit new prosthetic tool. I guess either a story event must take place or my dragon rot is too high? I've heard high rot will prevent NPC side quests...can anyone varify this? I have 4 Rot Essence: 1. Sculptor 2. New Peddler 3. Scared Maid 4. Fine Son My Unseen Aid is 10%
