Shinobi Hunter Enshin of Misen (忍び狩り・弥山院圓真, Shinobi Hunter - Enshin of Misen) 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, and they drop some of the best loot in the game.

Shinobi Hunter Enshin of Notes & Tips

  • Mikiri Counter can make this fight much easier, so it is advised before facing him.
  • You can Stealth Backstab him once by pulling each other enemy first and defeating them, and then hiding in the flowers until you can get him.
  • Playing aggressively works well here, as you can interrupt many of his thrust attacks by hitting him as he performs them. Try not to panic when you see the red kanji, if you are attacking, as you will likely interrupt it if you keep swinging.
  • Shinobi Hunter Enshin is dressed as a Sohei.



Shinobi Hunter Enshin of Misen Lore

  • The Shinobi Hunters are monks of Misen temple, as pointed out by Gokan's sugars. Many of these same men with spears can be found dotted around the land of Ashina who use similar if not the same movesets.

Strategy Writeup

Eliminate the lesser enemies first while using the flowers on the left-hand side to Backstab Deathblow this Mini-Boss for one of its health bars. Afterwards use the Mikiri Counter to punish his thrust attacks, or dodge his attacks while following up with counter attacks. Like most spear enemies its best to stay aggressive.

      sometimes this type of enemy does an instant thrust attack when you try to jump on his head after jumping a sweep attack but is very rare, somebody knows how to trigger this behavior? i want to try deflecting him after jumping but he never pulls this attack with me

        You know guys, instead of *****ing about the lore information, there's an "edit" button at the top of the page. Why not just fix it yourselves instead of spending so much energy complaining if you know so much?

          This man’s optional btw. Follow the river under the bridge before his area and swim upstream, there’s a long branch and a grapple ledge that takes you right to the well to Hirata

            The shinobi hunter Enshin of Misen is not of Senpou temple, but from the Misen temple, which literally is stated in his name. He shares the same moveset and desing as the white and blue spear monks that also drop Gokan's sugars that in their description state to originate from the Misen temple, unlike all other sugars that come from Senpou. Furthermore there is literally no enemies like him in Senpou temple so he most certainly is not from Senpou. Just because he is monk does not mean that he comes from the same temple as other monks. Please fix this lore misinformation.

              That lore section is likely inaccurate; the description for Gokan's Sugar straight up states that the Shinobi Hunters are from Misen Temple.

                lure him to the tower near the bridge, there is a fence which will keep you safe from his attacks. jump over the fence and laugh at him, attack him when he's done with his moves

                  That feeling when you fear the spear VS That feeling when you see a free posture damaging Thrust attack (with Miki counter). That feeling of gitting gud

                      This guy and the two monks hiding in the graveyard absolutely beat my ass because I had no idea when to use the Mikiri counter

                        The mikiri counter really helps : stand mid range, when you see the red symbol, spam the dodge button (O en ps4 controller) toward him. Repeat 2 or 3 times and you should be able to deathblow him
