Weapon: Fully upgraded (Damage at least) Murasama Blade
Secondary: Doesn't matter (Pincers preferred)
Other: At least 4 EMP grenades (you can use the Sai as a secondary to stun him)
(Optional) Wig: Wig A

Tips:
- You must know how to parry at least somewhat as this entire strategy involves parrying.
- Be relatively proficient Blade Mode.
- Patience
- Beware his kick attack! It's the one where he lunges forward (the kick that starts his 4 hit kick combo). It has amazing range and cost me the achievement quite a few times. Always be running!

Phase 1: At the very start of the battle Monsoon will charge at you. Lock on and run to the right and keep running. Monsoon should follow you and run after you but not attack. In this phase he has 4 attacks: 4 hit kick combo (which you can parry but it's easier to ninja run away), Sai combo (can be parry spammed but if you are following this he probably won't do it), smokescreen (same as above, it's much more annoying and time consuming then it is hard) and the sky attack. You want him to do the sky attack. After he runs after you for a little bit he'll jump into the air. Stand still and as he lunges towards you, parry it. He'll be in recovery for a few seconds so spam X and you should be able to get his health to 90%. Start ninja running away and repeat the strategy(luring him to do the sky attack) until he reaches 70%. This should only take 3 sky attacks punishes.

- Once he reaches 75% health he gets stunned, so keep wailing away and he'll usually start phase 2 once he reaches 67% health.
- If he does do the smokescreen attack just sit there and parry. The first 2 hits are the hardest (sometimes the first one comes really quick and is hard to parry) but after that it becomes easy enough. Practice makes perfect.
- If you do a good parry after a sky attack (the one that knocks him away) you can do the charged Pincer Blade move (hold Y and release when red) to take off around 10%. I find this leaves you in alot of recovery so I didn't use it myself but feel free to try it out.

Phase 2: In this phase he will start throwing objects at you. The game will prompt you to enter blade mode. I would recommend this as it's easier to cut them up than it is to run away (especially during phase 5). The first vehicle appears in front of you and is easy enough. Next he will throw 2 vehicles. The first is in front and the second is on the right. After cutting up/dodging this, Phase 3 will start.

Phase 3: Have an EMP grenade at the ready. Monsoon will jump off his platform and land somewhere in the middle of the arena. You have all the time in the world to throw an EMP at this moment. You want the EMP to land IN FRONT of him. If you throw it at him, he'll dodge it and it'll explode in the distance. After it hits he will be stunned. Run up to him and enter blade mode, line up your sword to the target (his head) as you have ample time and slice. This will knock his head away. Blade run up and then enter blade mode and start chopping at his head. Once youve done around 0.6% - 0.8% damage start running away, as his body will rejoin at YOUR position and he'll do an attack but if you run away before it, it shouldn't hit you. After this Phase 4 starts.

Phase 4: Exactly the same as Phase 1. Lure him to do sky attacks then parry and slash. You should only have to do this twice until Phase 5 starts (he'll be at around 53% - 50% life at this point).

Phase 5: Same as Phase 2 but with more objects. The first one he will throw 3 objects at you, one in front, one to the right and a new one to the left. The final time he will throw 4, one in front, one on the right, one on the left and the last slightly above your head. I do recommend cutting them as trying to run away usually gets you hit by the third item but if you want to try then feel free. After this Phase 6 will start. NOTE: Sometimes in the final object throw he will throw the first object to the right and the next in the middle so be careful. This was a rare occurance however. One other thing, sometimes the final object above you will be very difficult to hit/cut. If you cut and it turns brown then you're safe. If it's purple and above you and IMPOSSIBLE to cut, it will usually go above your head and not damage you. This is probably the cheapest way he deals damage.

Phase 6: Same as Phase 3. EMP him, run up, chop his head, run to head, blade mode, run away, Phase 7.

Phase 7: Same as Phase 1. Bait Sky attack, parry. You should have to do this twice and he should be at 40% life after you finish it. Be careful of the smokescreen attack, at this stage of the fight it will probably get you hit because of nerves.

Phase 8: Some changes. Instead of throwing vehicles at you he'll have a new attack called "Lorenzo Force" where he throws a big wheel of debris at you and it travels from one side of the arena to another while shooting off debris which explodes if you run into this. For this exact reason I strongly suggest you parry and not run away from this. As the wheel comes toward you, parry it (you can easily keep tapping Forward + X) and it will knock the wheel away. It will come back a second time, which you can parry and then enter a blade mode prompt to destroy the wheel which will begin Phase 9.

Phase 9: By far the hardest phase of the battle. Because it happens so late you aren't used to his attack pattern. He will first launch a sai from across the screen at you. You MUST parry this. If you run there's a 90% chance you will get hit (you can avoid it, but it is hard). After you parry it there will be a pause and it will attack you around 3 times. Parry this. He will then send his second sai at you and you must repeat this. After that he will send his legs and do the 4 hit kick combo which you must parry. After his arms and legs lay motionless, throw an EMP at him (his upper half will be walking around slowly) which will disable him so you can run up, blade mode his head, then blade mode his head on the floor which will start Phase 10.

Phase 11: Same as Phase 1. Lure sky attack, parry, attack.

Phase 12: Quicktime event and victory!
