Giant Toad is a Boss in Nioh. 

Pronounced "Giant Toad." The Giant Toad is, as its name implies, a yokai in the form of an enormous toad. This one is even larger than a human being, capable of standing on two legs and even wielding a spear. Legends say that toads, which are long loved, are particularly capable of attaining consciousness and turning yokai, but there are other theories as well.

This particular yokai's original form was Hattori Hanzo's father, the first Hanzo to bear the title. Feared as Oni-Hanzo for his ability to lead the Iga Clan, he forced those who would succeed him to undergo harsh training. It seems this devotion to the future of his clan bound itself to this world, and transformed into the form of a Giant Toad to continue training his successors.

 

The Giant Toad is, as its name implies, a yokai in the form of an enormous toad. Called Ogama in Japanese, they are even larger than a human being, capable of standing on two legs and even wielding a spear. They are usually depicted as smoking a pipe.

Strategy 1 (Melee)

The toad is a powerful but slow moving boss but can one hit you. Stay with a fast stance and dodge behind him to land some attacks. Eventually he will jump into the air and ground smash. When he jumps, dodge away. When he prepares his spear attack, dodge towards him to attack. Get to his back to trigger a repeat of the jump move. When his health is low he throws explosives at you. Dodge towards him when he's about to attack to cause him to miss. Preserve your Guardian Spirit until his health is at about a third left. You can use ranged weapons as well to get some damage dealt. 

The boss only has a small amount of attacks, and they are all relatively easy to avoid as they are heavily telegraphed. The attacks are as follows:

  • Spear thrusts (3 hits - 2 side swipes then one lunge) - Run to his left and behind him as he starts this combo and wail on his back.
  • Single Spear thrust - Again, just run/dodge left behind him and go ham on his back.
  • Pipe Swing - He swings this back then charges at you with it. As soon as you see him pulling his arm back run to a side (Left is best) and wail on him again.
  • Bomb throw - If you keep you distance from Toady he will start using projectiles. One of these is bombs. They hurt. They will be thrown in a curved line, so run forward towards him to get more hits off on him.
  • Crystal projectiles - Toady will fire a line of projectiles at your head. Blocking is key here. There are 2 types of crystals he can throw, one of them is a kind of sticky bomb. Should you miss-block one, you may get stuck. There is a 3 second or so delay once you are stuck, but you can premptively block as it detonates to not take any damage.
  • Butt Slam - This is perhaps his most obvious move - Just stay away from him, ideally around to his back and deal some more damage.
  • Tongue grab - Should Toady look at you and stay still for a second, he is most likely going to tongue grab you. He fires his tongue at you and it deals a fair amount of damage. Just a dodge to either side easily avoids being caught.

 

Strategy 2 (Magic)

A detailed Strategy goes here. It should feature details on the build, level and recommended weapons and items as well as counters for specific attacks.

 

Strategy 3 (Bow)

A really simple way to deal with the Giant Toad is to use Fire Arrows at a long distance; shooting it in the head will result in massive damage and easily take out the boss with a few swings as soon as his health is depleted low enough.
