In this guide, we will help you with how to beat the Imagawa Yoshimoto boss in Nioh 2 and will also detail the tips and tricks that you need to keep in mind while facing this boss.
Imagawa Yoshimoto is the first Human boss you face in Nioh 2. Human bosses are usually weaker compared to other bosses and the Imagawa Yoshimoto boss fight is no exception.
Fortunately, Imagawa Yoshimoto isn’t much difficult to beat as this boss faces as much threat as a regular enemy in the game. Here is how to defeat this boss.
You’ll have a lot of space to run around this boss. I recommend you just run to the left around Imagawa Yoshimoto or do a backward dodge. Keep things simple by slashing a small portion of his health at a time.
Dodge his attacks and use single high-stance heavy attacks to deal damage. Don’t get greedy and land one hit at a time. The only time Imagawa Yoshimoto becomes a threat is when he summons his spirit animal.
When he summons the spirit animal, keep your distance so that you don’t get hit by lightning elemental attacks. Just dodge and land a hit and eventually, you’ll beat Imagawa Yoshimoto.
However, that is not the end of it as you’ll face him again in the “Imagawa Diehard” side mission. However, nothing changes in the second encounter so use the same strategy as before and defeat him.
