The Guardian Ape is the final boss of the Sunken Valley area. This angry Kratos-looking ape has some seriously deadly attack strings that will decimate you if you get caught. I highly recommend having at least 7 Gourd charges for this fight.

The key to the first phase is to be passive. His attack strings are so erratic that getting in close and trying to deflect his combos will cut you to shreds. To get some hits in you want to look for one of three attacks. The first is where he finishes a combo by lying on his back and rolling from side to side. When he does this, quickly get to his head and get some hits in while being wary that you don't caught.

The second attack that leaves him open is the attack where he leaps up and throws excrement at you. When he does this, dodge towards him and under the excrement and you should be able to get in three hits or so while he recovers. The final attack is his massively telegraphed grab, where he dives towards you and through the air. Dodge this, and some more free hits await at the end.

Once cutting the Ape's head off, he decides that he doesn't want to die quite yet and now you have a second phase to deal with. This phase is much easier than the first. He essentially has five attacks in this phase. Two combos, a diving swipe, the terror scream & his sweep. The best way to whittle down his health is wait for his combos. He will swerve from side to side with his sword. Deflect one or two of his strikes, and he will go for a massive overhead hit (the camera will pan upwards). Deflect this, and it will put you under him, where you can get in five or six hits for some big damage (another good tip from PolacoForever here. Use the loaded spear prosthetic after you deflect the overhead to pull the centipede out and deal massive posture damage. Two or three spear pulls should down the beast.) The diving swipe is another good move for some damage. Jump towards him and you can get one or two hits in.

The biggest problem in this phase is his terror scream. If caught in it's area of effect your terror meter will fill up fast and can insta-kill you, however it is quite easy to read. When you get under him from the overhead deflect he always tries the terror scream afterward. Just get away for a moment, it's quite a good time to heal as well.

Take him down for good to unlock this achievement.
