      The Gunfort Guards (riflemen wearing bandages), could they be based off the lepers from Princess Mononoki?

        phantom enemies popping out of the walls near Serpent God temple in Sunken Valley must have names already. they absolutely deserve that. they are parriable, killable and lootable for magnetite. but most of all they are one really entertaining twist.

          The two nightjar ninja spirits behind the Hidden Forest Idol is a quick and effective xp farming spot, 20 second run that nets just under 1300xp.

            Any one know of a good way of dealing with those guys in the sunken valley that have that "shotgun" style weapon?

              Seems to be a bunch of duplicated pages (Guard Type 1 vs Swordsman Guard 1, Guard Type 2 vs Swordsman Guard 2, etc.) that could do with getting excised.

                It's been almost a month why is this wiki so bad? If this were Dark Souls by now we'd have the developer's name for everything, their hp scaling, weaknesses, unspoken contextual lore, drop rates, safe frames, birthdays and an attack list.

                  I'm on ng+ and still don't get how u fight those purple cancers. They always block, so being agressive is useless. I'm waiting for the attack that you can counter with a mikiri, but it only works sometimes. Sometimes i press that button and still get a hit. Those purple ninjas are my only weakness so far. Any tips?

                    I'm currently farming the purple ninja by the Mibu Village Idol, great farming spot if you're that far into the game. Here's some info for when his page goes up: 784 XP, 84 Sen. So far the drops have been: Pacifying Agent x1, Gokan's Sugar x1, Contact Medicine x1 and x2, Lump of Fat Wax x1 and x2. Can drop 2 Fat Wax and 2 Contact simultaneously.

                        There’s a hidden shinobi type enemy that’s located to the right of the bridge before you enter the burning Hirata Estate. Jump to the right and follow the stream to the end, to the right there’ll be an item, and to its there’ll be a hidden path blocked by bamboo, go through it and wall jump upwards until you reach the surface. To the left of the tunnel there’ll be a three story pagoda, the shinobi will be on the first floor. This enemy is highly perceptive, as he’ll be alerted to your presence if you get close, so you can’t kill him with a sneak deathblow. The shinobi is very fast and agile, using a combination of sword slashes, kicks that’ll eat through your posture, and straight, as well as sweeping, kicks that can damage your vitality. The vitality damaging kicks will be preceded by the danger symbol, they’re unblockable and undeflectable. I haven’t managed to kill him yet ); Hopefully someone will
