After defeating Gangreyn, there are a couple of levels to knock out. This will eventually lead to a final showdown with Iketomi. Iketomi is quite a difficult boss to take down, but we will get this.

Iketomi has 4 phases. The first 3 are sets of two hands. Looking at Iketomi, you will see six blue hands on him. Each phase you complete will remove two of them. The hands go through a similar pattern each time with only slight variations.

The hands will be on opposite sides of the globe at almost all times. Right indicates you moving clockwise while left will move you counter-clockwise.

General Pattern
1) Hands create a beam straight below them. The beams will then have a set of obstacles come out from them. If we examine the levels, you can see it as Low, Middle, and High. Your goal is to find the gap in them. Low ones can just be jumped over with single hop. Middle would require a double jump to get over while High requires you to go under them.
2) After the sweep of obstacles, the hands will begin to rotate clockwise/counter-clockwise with the beams still going down. You need to just run from them until they eventually stop.
3) The hands will rotate again until one is above you. They will ball up in a fist and prepare to strike downward. When the first hits the ground, an obstacle shot is fired in both directions from them. When the shots from each fist collide, they disappear so you just need to make a single dodge if it. This attack has 3 strikes. Strikes 1 and 2 only have a single obstacle in each direction. The 3rd strike is actually 3 fist pounds and has 3 obstacle shots come from it.

After this, the fists will stay still for a few seconds to give you time to really lay into them.

4) The 4th attack will see the hands create small fire/damage areas and begin to build towards your position. After placing two of them each, they will then line up over the smaller safe zone of the globe before coming down. You'll want to get to the larger one. This is only the start of this attack. At this point, you will see red circles indicating projectiles coming to those positions.

At this point, the cycle of 4 attacks will repeat again. If you destroy a set of hands, the next set of hands begins on Attack 1.

Variations for each Set
1) Set 1 is exactly as described above
2) Set 2 has an additional fire circle placed by the hands during Attacks 1 through 3
3) Set 3 has the fire circles, but during Attack 2 the red circle projectiles will fire while you run in a circle.

Last Phase
After defeating all 3 sets of hands, we have to deliver one final blow to finish off Iketomi. The phase starts with an X of lasers dividing the globe into four sections. The section you are standing in and one next to you will be hit with barrages of the red circle projectile.

There are likely two ways to dodge this. You can probably use your blue armor (the one with the decoy) to swap yourself to the area without the projectiles being fired on it. The other is to use your green armor to double jump between them. At the heights of your jump, you can actually go between them and land after they hit the ground.

After a few bunch of these attacks, the lasers disappear on the red circles will be falling in a circle pattern. There will be a spot for you to do a downward strike with your red armor (the sword one). One downward strike here will end the fight and give you victory.

Attacking
For the hands, I used only 2 armors (blue and green). For the most part, the green was my go to. It gave the best movement and the range made attacking possible during the fight rather than needing to always wait.

The blue armor came in handy for the 4th attack when both hands are on the opposite side. If you stand next to the flame circles and jump, your attack from the blue armor actually curves around enough to hit the hands. This can deal a decent amount of damage.

In general, you should be able to defeat all the Hand Sets in 1 set of attacks. It's tough for the 2nd and 3rd sets, but if you take the shots you can get with the Blue armor during Attack 4, it really cuts down the time. The other thing to do between phases. Stand at the top of the sphere and aim to you left. If you start firing, you can easily land 5 shots on the hand as it comes on screen.

One last note: I did not have a fully upgraded character. While I had found many of the attack upgrades and health upgrades, I was not all the way powered. In particular, If I had, some of the difficulty in the fight might have been reduced. The key is observe the patterns. Once I started to recognize it, the fight became a lot more manageable.
