How to Beat Shibata Katsuie



Shibata Katsuie can be found in a small square battlefield. Most of the fight he will be rushing at you from wall to wall.



Try to stay in the middle of the room and avoid his charge attacks. He will usually recover after finishing one of his moves so use the opportunity to strike back.

Using Firestop Talismans and Fire Resistance equipment can be a good idea to increase your durability.

While in the Dark Realm all his attacks will be imbued with fire. He will also gain a new charge using his weapons to move around the battlefield and leaving a trail of fire behind.

Phase #1



  • Fire Boar: He will summon a Fire Boar that runs forward leaving a trail of fire
  • Dodge either left or right and attack him until he recovers.

  • Burst Combo: He will perform a powerful combo with his axes while moving forward
  • You can burst counter this attack.

  • Whirlwind Attack: He will move forward while spinning his axes around him.
  • Run away from him in the opposite direction and wait for the attack to finish.

  • Rush Forward: He will rush to your location trying to stomp you. If he gets close enough, he will attack from below with his weapons
  • Try to stay in the center of the room and dodge left or right.

  • Weapon Rush: He will rush to your location using his axes and leaving a trail of fire behind
  • Try to stay in the center of the room and dodge left or right.
