Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Bosses Ranked From Easiest to Hardest

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the latest game from developer From Software and it’s perhaps their most difficult game yet. Boasting a nuanced combat system players will need to slash, dodge, and deflect against a variety of fearsome foes. While many of the core enemies are terrifying, Sekiro’s bosses and mini-bosses are toughest foes in the game. Because of this, one has to one wonder what the easiest and hardest bosses are in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

When compiling this list we focused on the first playthrough of Sekiro. This means a bosses difficulty in New Game Plus or above will not factor into our decision. Additionally, we will be including both bosses and mini-bosses. Since there is very little distinction made between the two – outside of a few getting cutscenes – we will be including them all.

However, both the Great Colored Carp and Great Serpent will not be on this list. Since they are more environmental hazards than traditional boss fights. The first time to meet Genichiro Ashina will also not be included since no matter what you do the fight will end the same. We based our choices on the enemies move set, the general strategy when fighting them, and how they fair when you first meet them. Lore and the general presentation of the battle will not factor into our list.

Here is every boss and mini-boss in Sekiro ranked from easiest to hardest:

43. Mist Noble

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Chained Ogre

I don’t really understand why the Mist Noble is even considered a mini-boss. Not only can you land an insanely easy stealth blow on this enemy, but the subsequent battle is over in seconds. The Mist Noble has such a low Posture that it’s easy to initiate a second death blow before it can even retaliate. The time it takes to read this entry is longer than the actual fight with this boss. While the lead up to this fight is tense, killing the Mist Noble never feels gratifying.

42. Leader Shigenori Yamauchi

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

The very first boss you face in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is Shigenori Yamauchi. However, most of you will have probably forgotten about this boss since the fight is over in a matter of seconds. Unlike the Mist Noble, Yamauchi at least puts up a fight and he’s designed to be the tutorial boss that teaches the player about Posture. Because of this, his easily dodgeable moves and low Posture gets a pass. This is designed as a teaching moment, not an in-depth battle that’s going to test your skills.

41. Folding Screen Monkeys

Sekiro Folding Screen Monkeys

One of the strangest fights in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the Folding Screen Monkeys are essentially one giant puzzle. Locked in an arena, you’re tasked with taking down four elusive monkeys that need to be countered in unique ways. While the battle is certainly creative, it offers very little challenge. The only monsters that attack you are ghost apes that deal Terror damage. These can kill you if you’re not paying attention, but since the monkeys only require one to two hits, it’s rare you’ll ever come close to dying.

40. Okami Leader Shizu

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Okami Leader Shizu Boss FightSekiro Shadows Die Twice Okami Leader Shizu Boss Fight takes place in the Fountainhead Palace.

It can't be missed, you have to kill this lightning-throwing miniboss to swim in the lake safely, which is mandatory to advance the story. Strategy: From the idol quickly grapple to the tree and use the grappling points on the right of the tree to evade the boss's electric attack. He's completely defenseless when you reach him, just bash him with your sword and the fight is over.

Okami Leader Shizu is less of a real mini-boss and more an environmental hazard you have to remove. Until this foe is defeated, she will rain lightning bolts down on your head, making swimming through the water nearly impossible. However, once you confront Okami the battle is pretty simple. As long as you can close the gap, Okami won’t stand a chance. Just make sure to jump anytime a lightning bolt is coming at you.

39. General Naomori Kawarada

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice How Many Bosses

The first real mini-boss you face is General Naomori Kawarada. Located in the Ashina Outskirts, Kawarada can be a rather intimidating foe. His blows hit exceptionally hard and your lack of healing gourds can make this fight tricky. However, since there is no fog to lock you in with him, players can simply run away if the battle proves too tough. Additionally, you can land a very easy stealth blow on Kawarada, making the fight much easier.

38. Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa

Perhaps the best entrance in all of Sekiro, Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa is the second boss you come across. Don’t let his intimidating stature fool you, Oniwa is remarkably easy to take down once you learn to not take him head on. Since you can grapple to Oniwa after certain attacks, it’s easy to get some slashes in and dash away before he can retaliate. You can also use firecrackers to startle his horse and give you another easy window for attacks. As long as you play it safe, Oniwa is quite a simple fight.

37. Shinobi Hunter Enshin of Misen

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Shinobi Hunter Enshin of Misen Boss Fight (Boss #5)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Shinobi Hunter Enshin of Misen Boss Fight takes place in the Hirata Estate.

After this is a garden area you encounter a guy in a white robe with a spear, that's the boss. Strategy: Stealth kill the torch enemy nearest the bridge, then run forward and take out the archer and the other two melee enemies. Now run away, just backtrack the way you come so the boss loses sight. Now you no longer need to deal with the mobs. Sneak along the grass on the left and stealth-attack the boss. This takes away one of his two lives. Now use :l-up: , dodge, dodge to get behind him, land two hits, repeat. Alternatively, use the Whirlwind Combat art when you're behind him.

The Shinobi Hunter is a glorified Mikiri Counter tutorial, but if you can’t manage the timing he will prove to be a bit tricky. All of his attacks have a significant amount of range, which makes dodging them difficult. He’s also not alone and if you don’t take out the guards beforehand this fight can get out of hand quickly. However, since you can land a stealth death blow on him and thin his ranks before the battle, the Shinobi Hunter comes in at number

36. Chained Ogre (All Versions)

Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice | Chained OgreThe Chained Ogre… can you see the rage in his eyes?

This big brute was certainly the first roadblock many players encountered. His intimidating size, impressive range, and devastating grab attacks make the Chained Ogre a force to be reckoned with. Thankfully, you can land some free hits before the fight starts and the Chained Ogre leaves himself open after a lot of his attacks. It also has an extreme weakness to fire, which makes the Flame Vent an excellent tool against this boss. Just be careful of the ogre’s grab because it will punish anyone not quick enough to dodge it.

35. General Tenzen Yamauchi

Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice | General Tenzen YamauchiGeneral Tenzen Yamauchi of the Ashina clan demands a keen eye. Winner of “Best of gamescom” and “Best Action Game” at gamescom 2018, Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice is the next adventure from developer FromSoftware, creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series.

What makes the fight against General Tenzen Yamauchi difficult is this mini-boss is surrounded by a ton of soldiers. However, the battle against Yamauchi can prove challenging if you don’t bother to take out the guards first. With rifleman and a soldier that will alert others if he spots you, utilizing the game’s stealth mechanics is a must. Once you take down Yamauchi’s bodyguards the actual one on one fight is quite simple. Just be patient and deflect his strikes until you can land a death blow.

34. Divine Dragon

Sekiro: Divine Dragon Boss FightDivine Dragon boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro Divine Dragon Boss Battle. Old Dragons of the Tree. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-23T08:00:04.000Z

Don’t let this dragon’s epic battlefield and size fool you, this fight is comically easy. All of its moves are extremely telegraphed and dealing with the root monsters is pretty simple if you don’t let yourself get surrounded. It doesn’t help that the only way to deal damage to the dragon is by firing a bolt of lightning at him. Very few of the skills you’ve learned matter in this battle, which makes the Divine Dragon an oddity. Even though it gets props for having one of the most cinematic battles in the game, the Divine Dragon doesn’t pose much of a threat.

33. Tokujiro the Glutton

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Tokujiro the Glutton Boss Fight (Boss #18)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Tokujiro the Glutton Boss Fight takes place in the Ashina Depths region. All Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Boss Fights Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Q_8g6RPng&list=PLRr5L69yg_kFInSVvVxJX4SJlb78s2mZ- Full Sekiro Boss Guide (Locations & Fights): http://www.powerpyx.com/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-boss-guide-all-bosses/ Location: Ashina Depths – Hidden Forest This comes shortly after the previous boss Snake Eyes Shirahagi. Tokujiro is actually on the main story path and cannot be missed (on the path to the temple where someone's playing the flute). From the Hidden Forest idol, jump across the trees. You'll come to a foggy area with ghost enemies. On the left side you can grapple up a tree and there you find Tokujiro and some small monkeys guarding him. Strategy: This is the same boss as Juzou the Drunkard in Hirata Estate, just with stronger stats. First you should clear out the moneys. Then backtrack until the boss has lost sight of you. Return to the area and grapple up the tree branch on the right side above the boss. He won't see you and this way you can get behind him. Jump down on him for an air takedown. This takes one of his lives. Now do the same as with Juzou: when the boss attacks use forward dodge, forward dodge, attack 2 times, repeat. If you get hit, dodge back a few times and use the healing gourd. Reward: Unrefined Sake, Prayer Bead SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=powerpyx Support this Channel by becoming a Member: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWBA1-H9A5IldSb3tNwQmtQ/join ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Follow PowerPyx: http://www.powerpyx.com https://www.youtube.com/PowerPyx https://www.facebook.com/PowerPyx https://www.twitter.com/PowerPyx ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~2019-03-23T05:40:18.000Z

Unlike Juzou, Tokujiro is a much easier fight since nothing really has changed since you last encounter this foe. Tokujiro uses the exact same moves as Juzou and his angry ape companions die in just a few hits. Additionally, once you reach Tokujiro you should have a lot more health and better knowledge of how to deflect strikes. This transforms a boss like Tokujiro into a bit of a pushover. The lack of new moves, makes fighting Tokujiro simple, even if you’re not great at Sekiro.

32. General Kuranosuke Matsumoto

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – General Kuranosuke Matsumoto Boss FightGeneral Kuranosuke Matsumoto boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro General Kuranosuke Matsumoto Boss Battle. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-21T15:15:47.000Z

The last of the generals, Matsumoto only gets the edge over his allies thanks to all of the guards having ranged weapons. This makes engaging him head-on suicide, as a volley of bullets will instantly kill you. It doesn’t help that the soldiers are closely clumped together, making stealth tricky. While the battle between you and Matsumoto is easy enough, the variety of guards and limited space makes this boss quite tricky. Remember to use the roofs to hide from gunfire or land a stealth death blow on the general.

31. Sakura Bull of the Palace

As you advance in the area you come by the Flower Viewing Stage idol automatically (after passing through a courtyard with squid-like flute enemies). From this idol you can find the bull behind the Mibu Manor (behind the building complex where you encounter the flute-playing squids). Strategy: It's the same as Blazing Bull, this boss just has a different color (purple). The moveset and strategy are the same. Because you have more attack pwoer now, this boss will actually be a lot easier than Blazing Bull. Dodge behind it when it stands still to land attacks. Dodge it when it charges at you or run sideways to let it miss, then attack.

Another reskin boss fight, Sakura Bull of the Palace is simply easier than the Blazing Bull because you’ve fought this boss before. Nothing really changes in this fight, but the confined arena can make dodging a bit difficult. Just stick to the beast’s right side and whack at it whenever it charges past you. Remember to abuse firecrackers in this fight too since that will let you land some free hits before it can retaliate.

30. Armored Warrior

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – Armored Warrior Boss FightHow to beat the "invincible" Armored Warrior boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro Armored Warrior Boss Battle. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-21T18:48:16.000Z

Unlike other enemies, you cannot directly kill the Armored Warrior with a death blow. Instead, you’ll need to shove this big oaf off the bridge once you break his Posture. Figuring out how to actually kill the Armored Warrior is most of the challenge. Sekiro doesn’t directly explain that you need to knock him away so this can prove to be a frustrating challenge since no other foe prior requires you to use the environment. Yet, once you realize how to defeat this enemy, the Armored Warrior is not that bad. A few of his attacks can certainly kill you, but almost all of them can be deflected.

29. Genichiro, Way of Tomoe

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Armored Warrior

The second to last boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is more of a warm-up for the last enemy in the game. Boasting only one health bar, Genichiro will attack you with the same second form moves he used during the last fight with him. This makes his fight pretty simple if you remember to get aggressive and break his Posture bar early. While Genichiro can drain your health bar with his lightning attacks, having the second fight just be a repeat shouldn’t give many players trouble.

28. Blazing Bull

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Blazing Bull Boss Fight (Boss #8)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Blazing Bull Boss Fight takes place in the Ashina Castle. All Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Boss Fights Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Q_8g6RPng&list=PLRr5L69yg_kFInSVvVxJX4SJlb78s2mZ- Full Sekiro Boss Guide (Locations & Fights): http://www.powerpyx.com/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-boss-guide-all-bosses/ Location: Ashina Outskirts – Ashina Castle Gate You will encounter this boss just after fighting Gyoubu Oniwa, inside the main castle. Strategy: The flaming bull has a lot of health but only one life. It can't block any of your attacks. It does extremely powerful attacks that cannot be fully blocked (blocking still causes you some damage), but it can only attack with its horns. So if you stand behind the bull it can't hit you. The bull has two main movements: running towards you, and attacking with his horns quickly while standing still. When it runs towards you, always dodge forward :l-up: + :circle: / :b: when its horns are touching the ground. To learn the timing will take some tries. It's recommended to do 2 or 3 test runs just to practice the dodge. When the bull slides its horns across the ground it's about to do an extremely powerful frontal attack that can one-hit kill you. So always dodge forward when the horn touches the ground to evade this attack 100% of the time. When the bull finishes running it will be vulnerable for a second while turning around. Get 1-2 hits in but always stand to its side or behind its back. When the bull stands still to attack is when you can deal most damage. ALWAYS dodge BEHIND the bull. Not to the side of it, BEHIND its back. You can land 2-3 hits while it does its attack motion. It will then turn a little bit your way so you need to dodge 1 time to get behind its back again and repeat this pattern. When the bull starts running again, focus first and foremost on dodging. Try to land a hit when the bull turns around but don't force it, getting hit by its running move will take away more than half your health and isn't worth the risk. Get the most damage in when it stands still by just dodging behind its back. When the bull's health gets low, just start throwing shuriken at it to do a fair amount of damage from a safe distance. Tip: from where we fought Gyoubu Oniwa you can go across the battlefield and up the stairs to a merchant. He sells a Gourd Seed for 1000 money which you can bring to Emma at the Dilapidated Temple to increase the Gourd uses, thus giving you more health.

Now we are starting to get into some of Sekiro’s tougher combatants. Unlike the Bull of the Palace, the Blazing Bull can prove to be quite difficult. Coming swiftly after the fight with Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa, the Blazing Bull will test your ability to quickly sprint out of the way. Its attacks hit really hard and this animal can be quite relentless. There’s very little room to properly dodge and counter-attack, so you’ll need to wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. It doesn’t help that the Blazing Bull has a bad habit of killing you the moment you resurrect.

27. Juzou the Drunkard

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Blazing Bull

Juzou the Drunkard is an early game boss that be quite a demanding fight if you’re not smart about managing his minions. Being able to stealth kill a lot of them or simply run away from the fight if it gets too tricky does lessen the tension. But, Juzou is an intimidating foe that has a surprising amount of reach with his sword. This fight definitely teaches you about punishing big, slow attacks and how to manage crowds of enemies. Being able to recruit the other soldier into helping you also helps, but he isn’t necessary to kill the bandit leader.

26. Shichimen Warrior

There next to the idol in a dark arena is this boss. Strategy: To defeat this enemy you must consume a Divine Confetti to damage it and a Pacifying Agent to protect yourself against its Terror Attacks (which otherwise instant-kill you). By this point you will have a lot of attack power and can make quick work of him. Be sure to evade his Terror attacks, when your terror gauge is full you die instantly. After the boss teleports away he likes to use a massive beam that he uses for a few seconds. Run sideways until he stops this beam attack, then go at him with standard sword strikes and repeat. Refresh your Divine Confetti and Pacifying Agent when it runs out.

This fight comes down to one thing, do you have any Pacifying Agents? Just like other From Software games, Terror is a status effect that will instantly kill the player if you sustain too much of it. Because of this, the Terror-focused boss can be challenging if you lack any Pacifying Agents to reduce your build up. Yet, if you go into this battle with some you shouldn’t have that much trouble taking this creature down. While it’s ranged attacks can be annoying, the Shichimen Warrior leaves enough openings that’s it’s easy to build up a death blow on it.

Follow the roofs to enter the tall tower in the middle of the area (the tallest building on the map, easy to see). Once inside the top of the tower, there are some samurai with blue robes. In a room on the right (top floor) there are 2-3 of them and you can grapple through a hole in the ceiling. From there you can follow the path upstairs to reach the Ashina Dojo at the top of the tower. Strategy: This boss hits hard but has very little health and poor defense. Just spam him with the Whirlwind Combat art. It will still cause him damage even when he blocks it. Just play aggressively. Either use Firecrackers (Prosthetic Tool) to stun him or dodge towards him when he strikes :l-up: :circle: . Sometimes he will still hit you when dodging, in that case dodge away to heal and repeat. Even when he starts blocking just keep spamming him with Whirlwind a few times until his health is depleted.

I must have died to this mini-boss about a dozen times before I figured out how to kill him. A foe capable of literally killing the player in one shot, Jinsuke might appear to be an intimidating foe at first. However, once you learn the timing for deflecting his moves, this old man can quickly be defeated. The flash right before he draws his sword is an easy tell that really simplifies this fight. Alternatively, using the Raven Feathers to get behind can reduce the difficulty of this boss.

24. Shigekichi of the Red Guard

Drop to the bottom after Old Grave idol and a bridge will now be lowered that leads back to Ashina Outskirts where you fought the General Tenzen miniboss. Strategy: It's the same thing as the Juzou fight in Hirata Estate, and there are lots of other enemies guarding him once again. However, instead of facing him head-on advance to the idol "Ashina Outskirts – Outskirts Wall Stairway". Kill the mobs around the idol so they can't alert the boss. You don't need to clear out all guards in the fort where the boss is, just the drummer on the roof and the guy patrolling the area. Backtrack to the idol os the boss loses sight of you. Then sneak up to the boss from behind for a backstab, which takes one of his lives. Then just forward-dodge left whenever he's about to attack, hit 2-3 times, repeat. He will miss you ever time when you forward-dodge just as he starts the attack animation. You can also use Puppeteer Ninjutsu on a nearby enemy so he joins the fight and helps to kill the boss.

The last of the Juzou reskins, Shigekichi gets the edge over his counterparts thanks to the soldiers with him and his use of fire. Despite using the same attacks as the others, the switch to fire-based moves makes dodging critical. Additionally, if you don’t manage to get rid of his buddies this fight can go from hard to downright cruel. To really succeed in this fight, take your time and pick off the other soldiers before engaging Shigekichi directly.

All Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Boss Fights Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Q_8g6RPng&list=PLRr5L69yg_kFInSVvVxJX4SJlb78s2mZ- Full Sekiro Boss Guide (Locations & Fights): http://www.powerpyx.com/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-boss-guide-all-bosses/ Location: Senpou Temple – Temple Grounds After the 3rd idol in "Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo" you will see a path with wolves and some monks throwing bombs at you. Grapple up the temple roof and then jump down to a temple on the right side below you. Through the roof of this temple you can enter a dark chamber with this boss. Strategy: As soon as you enter the boss chamber, take out the 3 small enemies first that are sitting on the wooden beams. Don't fall down so the boss doesn't notice you. After they're dead you jump on the boss and do a stealth-takedown midair. This immediately takes away one life. Very quickly kill the one remaining enemy on the ground (2-3 strikes will kill it). Now it's just you and the boss left. Dodging won't do you any good in this fight. It's all about deflecting the consecutive attacks to quickly lower it's posture and do an execution. You just need 3 buttons for this fight: Counter (hold :l1: to block and press :l1: just before a hit lands), Jump (press :x: when the boss shows a red attack icon, don't press directional button, again press :x: in midair for heavy posture damage), Attack (press :r1: after boss finishes an attack chain, indicated by his big attack). Don't even press directional buttons. Just stand there, counter all attacks and do a double-jump when the red attack icon shows up. Land 2 hits after the boss finishes a combo. If you counter well it will deplete the boss's posture within just two of its attack chains. The skills Ascending Carp, Descending Carp, Flowing Water are very good here as they make your deflections stronger and increase your posture. An alternative strategy is to grapple up to the wooden beams where the boss can't hit you, then jump down on it to land 1-2 quick hits and immediately grapple up again, repeat this process. If you're having trouble with deflecting or your posture drains too fast then this is an easy alternative.

Your frustration with the Long-arm Centipede Sen-Un will entirely depend on how good at deflecting you are. Set in a large shrine full of smaller variations of this foe, you can quickly escape death by just retreating to the rafters above. Outside of Sen-Un, all of the minions can be quickly dispatched turning this into a one on one battle. As long as you can deflect the centipede’s rapid strikes you can easily break its posture and land a death blow.

22. Lone Shadow Longswordsman

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Lone Shadow Vilehand Boss Fight (Boss #25)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Lone Shadow Vilehand Boss Fight takes place in the Ashina Castle (2nd visit). All Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Boss Fights Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Q_8g6RPng&list=PLRr5L69yg_kFInSVvVxJX4SJlb78s2mZ- Full Sekiro Boss Guide (Locations & Fights): http://www.powerpyx.com/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-boss-guide-all-bosses/ Location: Ashina Castle – Upper Tower – Ashina Dojo After killing the Corrupted Monk and Guardian Ape, backtrack to Ashina Castle through the Abandoned Dungeon. You must reach the tower roofs, on your way there you encounter Lone Shadow Vilehand in the room where previously the Ashina Elite Jinsuke Saze miniboss fight took place. Strategy: Make sure you have the Puppeteer Ninjutsu equipped. As you enter the Dojo, you'll want to crouch and get behind the mob on the left side (the non-boss enemy). Backstab him and press :r1: to trigger the Puppeteer skill, thus he will fight the boss for you! Now it's you two versus the boss. Your guy will likely die within the boss's first health bar, but at least you can get some good damage done in the meantime. After he is dead, you use the same strategy as for the Lone Shadow Longswordman miniboss – whenever Vilehand is about to attack you dodge forward with a slight degree to the left (side where he holds his sword) and then do the Whirlwind Slash Combat Art :l1: + :r1: . Rinse and repeat. Forward dodge whenever he starts an attack, do Whirlwind Dash, repeat.

The Longswordsman may seem like a tricky fight the first few times you face him, but the trick is to play defensively. Since you can land an easy death blow on this mini-boss from the hole in the ceiling, the difficulty of this battle is cut in half. Once the fight begins, if you play defensively and only strike after his combos finish you shouldn’t have any issues. Just make sure to keep your guard up to ensure that he doesn’t stun lock you with his attacks.

21) Snake Eyes Shirafuji

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Snake Eyes Shirafuji Boss Fight (Boss #22)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Snake Eyes Shirafuji Boss Fight takes place in the Sunken Valley region.

Then you'll run into this boss automatically on the way to the Gun Fort idol. For now, ignore him and once you reach the Gun Fort idol you can backtrack to do a stealth takedown on him. Strategy: When you first see this boss he will face you head-on. Ignore him for now. Grapple up the tree branch left of him and advance to the Gun Fort idol. Rest at the idol to reset the enemies. Then backtrack to the boss. Rifleman will shoot after you but just jump up and down and they'll miss most shots. Drop down to the boss and do a stealth takedown from behind to take one of his lives. Now deflect all his attacks and spam him with normal :r1: sword strikes after deflecting. Rinse and repeat. When he's showing the red attack icon you'll want to dodge away, as he's about to do an unblockable grappling attack on you. If you get hit and need to heal, run to the left side of the area or even grapple up the tree branch to get out of sight. If you try to heal in front of him he'll just shoot you. Once you brought down his health to about 70% his posture becomes much easier to break. Once broken, he can be executed in 1 hit.

Snake Eyes Shirafuji is a brutal opponent that can devastate your health bar. With a variety of quick hitting ranged attacks, Shirafuji can keep you at bay. Thankfully, her long-range grab attack is extremely punishable. However, that doesn’t make this fight any easier and you’ll need to really memorize her combos if you hope to succeed. Did we mention that she will have soldiers shooting at you during the fight? Turns out that Snake Eyes Shirafuji doesn’t fight fair.

20. Shume Masaji Oniwa

VideoVideo related to sekiro shadows die twice bosses ranked from easiest to hardest2019-04-04T15:54:11-04:00

Another general, Shume Masaji Oniwa is a ranged combat that will use his spear to keep you at bay. While this will prove tricky, you’ll face Oniwa when you have a lot of health and quite a few tricks. This lessens the difficulty of the fight but doesn’t make it easy for skilled players. The burning environment will restrict the spaces you can dodge, forcing you to “get good” at deflecting his blows. Pro tip: backstab his friend before the fight and use the ninjutsu that turns him into an ally. It will save you a lot of headaches.

Apparently From Software thinks it’s hilarious to lock you in a tiny room with a boss that takes up 60% of it. Enter the Long-arm Centipede Giraffe, an exact copy of the last centipede except you have nowhere to run in this fight. This entire battle boils down to your ability to expertly deflect and then jump off their head when they attempt a Perilous attack. There’s almost no room for error in this fight since the centipede has a really long range. Yet, if you get your deflect timing down this boss can be quickly defeated.

18. Snake Eyes Shirahagi

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Snake Eyes Shirahagi Boss Fight (Boss #17)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Snake Eyes Shirahagi Boss Fight takes place in the Ashina Depths region. All Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Boss Fights Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Q_8g6RPng&list=PLRr5L69yg_kFInSVvVxJX4SJlb78s2mZ- Full Sekiro Boss Guide (Locations & Fights): http://www.powerpyx.com/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-boss-guide-all-bosses/ Location: Ashina Depths region – Ashina Depths idol Immediately after the Ashina Depths idol you will find this boss in the next room (the chamber with poison lakes). To get here, go to the old well where you fought the boss "Lone Shadow Longswordman" in Ashina Reservoir. Swim through the well where that boss fight happened to come to a dark chamber. Ignore the purple boss for now, it's one of the headless meant for later. Walk until you find a woman praying at a cliffside. You must jump down the cliff and after a few seconds of free fall can press :l2: to use grapple on a cliff. Then follow the cliffs and dark tunnels on the left. Strategy: This is basically the same as Snake Eyes Shirafuji but you need to be more careful not to attract any small enemies. The area is filled with shooters. From the Ashina Depths Idol, drop down to kill the shooter standing on a platform high up. He's the only one with a clear line of fire to where the boss is. The rest of the enemies you can ignore, they won't notice you. Quickly grapple on to the statue on the right and from there to the trees and the statue near the boss. The boss is standing in the top right corner of the area. When you grapple through the air he won't be able to see you. After landing on the statue to his left, walk down and get behind him for a stealth takedown. Now he has only one life left. The other enemies won't be alerted if you did a clean grappling sequence without falling down. If they saw you it's a whole lot harder and you should return to the idol and repeat until you end up at the boss in total stealth. After backstabbing the boss, quickly bring down his health below 50%. The quickest way is with some combat arts or use the Firecrackers Prosthetic Tool to stun him, attack and use Firecrackers again. Once his health is below 50% his posture recovers slowly. At that point just deflect all his attacks and bash him with standard sword strikes until his posture breaks, then you can execute him.

What is it with From Software and poison lakes? Snake Eyes Shirahagi is essentially the same fight as Shirafuji, only this time you’re on a tiny island. All of the same strategies still work for Shirahagi, but the toxic environment and multiple gunmen elevate this fight. There’s a lot to manage here and if you’re not diligent with taking out Shirahagi’s back up then you’ll certainly end up dying – a lot.

17. Corrupted Monk (Ghost)

Sekiro: Corrupted Monk Boss FightCorrupted Monk boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro Corrupted Monk Boss Battle. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-22T14:51:06.000Z

Don’t let this ghost’s size fool you, the Corrupted Monk is quite difficult and nimble. Its spear gives the Corrupted Monk some serious range, allowing it to constantly keep you on the defensive. While you can play the Posture battle with the monk, it’s simply easier to just go for its vitality after it whiffs one of the combos. The real challenge comes from how hard the Corrupted Monk hits, as one slash can cut your health bar in half. Even with Divine Confetti, this is a very tricky fight that only gets harder when you face the real thing later on.

16. Emma, the Gentle Blade

VideoVideo related to sekiro shadows die twice bosses ranked from easiest to hardest2019-04-04T15:54:11-04:00

Emma is a fight where there is almost no room for error. Despite her low posture, Emma can be a very difficult opponent. Every one of her attacks will cut your health bar in half and she can strike very, very quickly. She is also remarkably fast, able to cover the entire arena in a less than a couple of seconds. If she manages to land a hit you better heal yourself otherwise Emma will instantly kill you. To make matters worse, Emma is just a teaser before the real fight.

15. Seven Ashina Spears – Shikibu Toshikatsu Yamauchi

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice – Seven Achina Spears – Shikibu Toshikatsu Yamauchi Boss Fight (Boss #10)Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Seven Achina Spears – Shikibu Toshikatsu Yamauchi Boss Fight takes place in the Ashina Reservoir region.

Then you find the Reservoir idol. Near the idol is an area with two big hammer guys and some stairs leading up to the temple where you first saw the divine heir in the prologue. There you find the Seven Spears boss. Strategy: This is one of few bosses where dodge, dodge, attack will NOT work. He uses spear sweeps which will still hit you. He also has a ton of health. The best way to defeat him quickly is to break his guard, which in this fight means a lot of deflection and Mikiri Counters. First, we'll take away one of his lives with a stealth takedown. From the idol, jump left across the trees and you'll land between a rifleman and a drummer. Quickly kill the drummer so he doesn't alert the camp. Then take the same path you took in the prologue to climb around the left side of the mountain and climb through the hole to the temple. Don't be seen by any enemies or they'll chase you during the boss fight! After you get to the temple via the cliffside you can attack the boss from behind. One life down, one to go. The "Firecrackers" Prosthetic Tool (bought from merchant near Ashina Outskirts – Gate Path) + the combat art "Ichimonji: Double" (Ashina Arts combat style) are highly recommended. First do some Mikiri Counters (block and then press the dodge button without any directional buttons when a spear strike with red sign is about to land – :l1: , :o: ). When he uses sweeps you do a double jump to cause posture damage. The other moves you try to deflect or block and try to attack in between to keep his posture from recharging. When his posture is about 30% down, you start throwing firecrackers to stun him and immediately use Ichimoji: Double combat art to attack. This combat art does massive posture damage. With this combo you can stun him 8 times in a row and keep using the combat art until his guard breaks. Additionally, you can use "Fistful of Ash" (item) to stun him up to 10 more times. An easy win for an otherwise very difficult fight. Don't try to take down all his health, he has way too much of it, breaking his guard is the way to go.

Can you perform a Miriki Counter? If the answer is yes then you’ll still have a pretty hard fight ahead of you. However, if the answer is no then this will be a damn nightmare. Shikibu has insane range and hits very hard. Even though you can easily land a stealth death blow, it doesn’t matter because Shikibu will still kick your ass up and down Ashina. This is undoubtedly the hardest general in all of Sekiro and will prove to be a fearsome challenge for even veteran From Software players.

14. Headless

Sekiro: Headless Boss FightHeadless boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro Headless Ako Boss Battle. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-22T16:59:04.000Z

We’re cheating a bit and lumping all the versions of Headless into one entry. Even though the fight doesn’t really change from encounter to encounter, Headless can still prove to be a very challenging opponent. His gas that heavily restricts movements robs you of your speed and dodging capabilities. Instead, you’ll have to hope you can deflect enough attacks without succumbing to the Terror status effect. Making matters worse is you’ll need Divine Confetti if you want this fight to finish in a reasonable amount of time.

13. Lone Shadow Vilehand

VideoVideo related to sekiro shadows die twice bosses ranked from easiest to hardest2019-04-04T15:54:11-04:00

Located in Ashina Castle where Jinsuke used to reside, Lone Shadow Vilehand is a fast and deadly opponent. His combos are quite long and can easily break your Posture in a single flurry. To make matters worse, Vilehand uses poison which can be troublesome if the effect actually triggers and begins to drain your life. The only thing keeping this foe from being higher on the list is you can actually stealth kill his bodyguard and turn them into an alley via your Ninjutsu.

O’Rin of the Water is certainly one of the hardest mini-bosses in all of Sekiro. Her attacks are lightning fast and the ability to phase out of existence makes follow up hits very tricky. She also has a unique style that flows from one blow to another with some odd delays between strikes. Until you really get the timing down, deflecting and dodging her moves is very difficult. Even though you can land a cheeky death blow by jumping on her head before the fight, O’Rin of the Water is still a very strong foe.

11. Headless Ape + Bride

Sekiro: Headless Ape and Guardian Ape Wife Boss FightHeadless Ape and his guardian ape wife boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro Headless Ape Boss Battle. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-22T10:30:01.000Z

The Headless Ape is perhaps the most terrifying foe in the entire game. This brutal, huge beast can cleave your shinobi into pieces and make engagements very tricky. Despite using the same moves as the Guardian Ape’s second form, the Headless Ape is still a very difficult fight. Things get even harder when the ape calls in its mate which forces you to deal with two opponents. Your arena is already cramped, so shoving in a second big enemy can make this battle very, very difficult. Make sure to bring some firecrackers with you!

The last of the mini-bosses, Lone Shadow Masanaga the Spear-Bearer is essentially the same fight as Vilehand, just without back up and in a much smaller room. Vilehand has some very quick attacks and also deals poison damage via his sword. You’ll need to be very quick with your deflections and dodges if you hope to survive. Masanaga also regenerates his Posture very quickly, which means you’ll need to be on the offensive if you hope to win.

9. Corrupted Monk (Real One)

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Review

Just like the ghost version of this boss, the Corrupted Monk has a plethora of long-range attacks that deal a lot of damage. Broken up into three phases, the Corrupted Monk will prove to be a vicious foe if you’re not diligent about blocking. Remember, you can land a death blow during the second part of the fight which will make your life way easier. However, this still requires two full phases of dealing with this boss on a narrow bridge.

8. Genichiro Ashina

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – Genichiro Ashina Boss FightGenichiro Ashina boss fight in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Sekiro Genichiro Ashina Way of Tomoe Boss Battle. Lightning boss. BFD, Boss Fight Database.2019-03-22T03:22:49.000Z

I have lost count how many times I died to Genichiro Ashina. A three-part fight, Genichiro’s first two phases consist of deflecting a barrage of ranged and close quarters attack. Ashina deals a lot of damage, allowing him to quickly dispatch your shinobi with only a few blows. Not only will you need to memorize his combos, but safe enough gourds for the hidden third part of this boss battle.

Once he actually goes down, Ashina will become much more aggressive and start hurling lightning at you. Now you’ll need to go on the offensive, forcing him to block your attacks before he starts depleting you of healing gourds. If you die you’ll need to do the whole fight over again and given how early in Sekiro this fight is, there’s almost no room for wasting consumables.

I imagine this is the first real boss that gave players trouble in Sekiro. Lady Butterfly is a quick, agile, and surprisingly brutal enemy. While the end of her attacks leaves great openings for counter hits, Lady Butterfly will punish anyone who gets too aggressive. Since you’ll be limited on supplies, she is the hardest early game boss. Things go from bad to worse during her second phase which incorporates illusion monsters and magical projectiles. If you don’t play it safe during this part then you will surely perish.

The most “Souls-like” boss in the game, Demon of Hatred looks like a monster ripped right out of Bloodborne. Unlike other enemies, you’ll need to start slashing at its groin and behind if you want to vanquish this monster. The demon doesn’t make this easy, as it possesses a ton of fire moves, quick striking claw attacks, and scariest belly flop of all time. There are very few prosthetic tools that even help in this fight, so you’ll need to rely on your reflexes. Just don’t forget to grapple onto the demon’s head to close the gap.

5. Great Shinobi Owl

Sekiro Long Arm Centipede Giraffe

Our number 5 hardest boss is your father, the Great Shinobi Owl. Everything about this fight is difficult regardless if you go for vitality or Posture damage. The Owl has incredible range and his moves do a ton of damage to your Posture. Unlike other foes, if he actually breaks your Posture will perform a death blow and instantly kill your shinobi.

The Owl utilizes a variety of gadgets too, including fireworks, smoke bombs, shurikens, and a bomb that disables your ability to heal. If there was PvP in Sekiro we imagine fights would be something like this. Do not get greedy in this fight, the Owl has some seriously strong counterattacks.

4. Isshin Ashina

VideoVideo related to sekiro shadows die twice bosses ranked from easiest to hardest2019-04-04T15:54:11-04:00

The final boss if you decide to join your father, Isshin Ashina is remarkably quick for his age. Able to deal a lot of burst damage, Isshin throws a mix of fire and big arcing sword slashes at you. Because of this, you’ll need to be constantly ready to dodge which will leave almost no room for follow up attacks. Deflecting proves to be even trickier since it’s hard to judge the range on his moves. What really makes this fight difficult is you have to face Emma beforehand, so you’ll already be put through a tough fight before Issin even arrives.

We’re pretty sure From Software designed the Guardian Ape to just break the spirits of its players. Unlike every fight before it, the Guardian Ape is insanely erratic and fast, making it very difficult to actually predict. There is virtually no room for counter attacks and deflecting all its strikes will get you killed. The ape will also fart on your (Yes, really) and throw is poo if you’re trying to keep your distance. Yet, the best feeling in the world is finally getting to cut this big brute’s head off with a massive sword.

That is until he picks up his damn head and the sword like nothing happened. We cannot even imagine how many players got caught off guard by this. Not only does it have a Terror AoE (Area of Effect) attack, but the Guardian Ape has an entirely new set of moves! This essentially forces the player to fight two bosses back to back with no checkpoints at all. Good luck!

Found in the same room where you fought Lady Butterfly. See Purification Ending Guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4w-UtofqBk Strategy: First of all, you should have done all other bosses before fighting Owl Father (defeated Divine Dragon, Demon of Hatred etc. to increase attack power and all minibosses to max out Vitality and Posture). If you don't have maximum Posture yet (40 Prayer Beads found) then this will be more troublesome. The key to win this fight is to do clean blocks until Owl Father uses a heavy attack, which you will dodge, thus leaving him wide open for attacks. You will constantly hammer him with sword strikes and stick to him like glue, to reduce his posture. You'll also land some lucky hits by doing this. Attack until he deflects (orange flash on swords), then he's about to attack and you deflect his attacks. Then you attack again and repeat this cycle until he uses a slow and heavy attack. Basically two attacks are slow and leave him wide open: his jump attack, and after he does a floor sweep (red warning sign) he likes to do an Ichomoji combat art. Try to push him into a corner with your sword strikes. Owl will try to jump back but is blocked by the wall, he'll try anyway and you get a free hit or two because he lowers his guard. If you just do clean counters and keep attacking you'll land lots of lucky hits along the way because his blocking isn't very good sometimes. When you see him toss black powder in the air dodge TOWARDS his right side, not away. The black powder means firecrackers are about to go off. If you try to dodge back they will still hit you most times. When you dodge forward they will miss you and you get behind Owl to land 1-2 quick hits. In the second phase (after his first health bar is gone), he'll summon his owl spirit animal. It doesn't change much though. He learns two new moves: to teleport (blue flash – just run away when he does it) and a fire owl. The fire owl is easily dodged by jumping up in the air when it comes flying towards you. Other than that his moveset stays the same. It's recommended to consume "Ungo's Sugar" (blue) to reduce damage taken. If you need to heal or rebuff, wait for him to miss an attack and stand behind a pillar so he can't hit you right away. Also keep firecrackers for his 2nd phase. Each firecracker lets you land 1-2 hits on him which speeds up the second phase quite a bit.

Did you think you were done fighting your dad? The second battle with the Great Shinobi Owl is even more difficult thanks to his new move set. A lot of his attacks are very quick and he will start implementing more firecrackers at the end of combos. This makes this boss tricky since you cannot always dash in to quickly deal some damage before going back on defense. Some of his combos have insanely quick follow-ups allowing the Owl to always keep you away from him.

Things get even worse in the second phase when he summons a spirit owl. Not only can he hurl this bird at you, but the Owl can use it to teleport towards you. When he does this the Owl becomes untargetable so you’ll have to be ready to sprint away right as he vanishes.  This is an endurance fight and if you cannot properly deflect his strikes then this giant of a man will always win.

1. Isshin, The Sword Saint

Surprising no one, the hardest boss in the game is also the very last one. Technically a four-part fight since you need to fight Genichiro beforehand, Isshin is comically difficult even by From Software standards. While the first phase isn’t that bad, but once he pulls out his spear prepare to get absolutely wrecked. Isshin has a number of combos – a few of which have different variations – making defending difficult. His range is on par with the Corrupted Monk and there is almost no room for error.

A single hit will take half your life bar, so you’ll need to play this almost perfectly. Once the fourth phase starts, Isshin gains the ability to launch projectiles and lighting. If you cannot deflect the lightning then Isshin will beat you senseless. Did we mention Isshin also uses a gun? Because apparently the giant spear, sword, lightning strikes, and wind strikes weren’t enough. If you manage to beat this foe give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve just vanquished the most difficult boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
