Test Subject Notes & Tips

  • Effective Prosthetic Tools:
    • A strike from the Loaded Axe will almost completely break their posture.
    • The Loaded Umbrella completely nullifies their grab attack and can also deflect it, which cannot be done normally.
    • The Shinobi Firecracker stuns them for a few seconds, leaving them open for attack.
    • They catch on fire after one blast from the Flame Vent.
  • Ineffective Prosthetic Tools:
    • They cannot be dragged with the Loaded Spear.
    • The Mist Raven is ineffective against them.
    • Sabimaru is not very effective at poisoning them, as they die from the weapon's damage before the poison inflicts.
  • Once grabbed, rapidly alternating Block and Attack will allow Sekiro to struggle out of the grab and much of its damage early. 
  • Once dealt a Deathblow these enemies will revive once.
    • They will instantly die after a single Deathblow if the player performs it while using Stealth, even when standing back up after reviving.
    • Fire has the same effect.
  • Upon spotting the player, they slowly walk towards Sekiro with a begging hand-gesture, and will attempt to grab him shortly after.
    • If they grab the player, button mashing is effective to completely avoid taking any damage.
  • Since they move slowly and have only one, very slow attack, they can be easily out-ranged and out-maneuvered.
