Taro Trooper (Greatshield) Notes & Tips

  • They tend to bash you with their wooden great shield, as that is their only weapon. Two can be found right before the 'Main Hall' idol, and they are surrounded by several "bomb-throwing" monks.
  • This enemy actually suffers from the one aspect of shield enemies, you can break his shield and it gives you a deathblow opportunity. It requires two hits with the Axe, which can be done seamlessly after upgrading it for the second 
  • When their shield is broken, they curl into a ball, frightened and are no longer capable of fighting, allowing for a free deathblow, though whether or not it is the right thing to do, what is certain is that the choice to kill them is up to you.
  • Oddly enough, they don't drop any sen when they die.

Other notes;

  • Its shield will feature a crack after landing the first hit with the axe.

 

Taro Trooper (Greatshield) Lore 

  • Taro is a Japanese name for boys, From Japanese 太(ta) meaning "thick, big" and 郎(rou) meaning "son". They have small, child-like heads. 
  •  Their gigantism, and the various lesions across their bodies Taro Trooper Lesions, are likely the result of imbibing Rejuvenating Waters. Lesions and atrophy due to imbibing the waters are found on various enemies, including bandits, zombies, and Senpou monks. The excess skin around their waist suggests that in spite of their size, they are in a constant state of hunger.
  • Ashina Taro Troopers are raised on a diet of Taro Persimmons, which come from the infected ebony trees of Mibu Village.
