    This guy is an asshole, fuck trying to dodge him. Just run away using RT and have him chase you and then stop and spam B and the dpad to throw him then run away again. This way your health shouldn't be an issue as it will regenerate as you flee like a coward.

    TheOnlyMattoMan this just didn't work for me. He just dodged when I tried that. I see how many people used this strategy so I aint complaining much :)

    Calex dEUS@TheOnlyMatto like the guide says this guy is an asshole. From memory you need to just dead stop and mash b and wiggle the dpad left and right then run away again.

    Smoky BrennethWhat I did throughout the battle was hold the left analog stick away and slightly up/down to kind of shuffle in circles around him,occassionly pressing Y to hopefully side dodge his strikes. When successfully evading, a simple XXA string and then repeating the process.

    It makes for a longer-than-usual battle but remember: your health regenerates, his does not.

    If he uses a move where he slides between your legs, hammer A with no directional input for a nice bit of easy damage.

    This is story related.

    This will unlock after knocking Chai into the sea following the final QTE sequence.

    For this fight, you must dodge a lot ( cn_Y + direction). Quick attack after a succesful dodge.

    The correct input is cn_down cn_A cn_A cn_B

    Found this guy easy when I did the following:

    Step 1:
    cn_rightcn_rightcn_X Dash elbow move, spam it. (assuming cn_right is in front of you, if not use cn_leftcn_leftcn_X)

    cn_right cn_right cn_A cn_right cn_A for tornado kick works well too if the dash elbow doesn't work.


    Step 2:
    If at any time he gets close and/or goes under your legs, spam cn_B and the opposite direction to throw him. I try to hit cn_X to punch him in the back of the head because I think it does more damage but throwing him was more common with a button mash.

    Step 3:

    Run with cn_RT and use cn_A or cn_X to hit him by turning sharply into him if he is winning. This can be used to regain health.

    QTE after he is beaten - cn_down cn_A cn_A cn_B

    He didn't hit me more than 3 times, it wasn't a long fight and it was over. If the other ones don't work for you, try that.

    Throni360Step 2 worked for me. RT+A and sometimes RT+X were my go to attacks. I barely lost health.

    The first 2 steps are not needed and made it harder for me.
