Great Centipede is a Boss in Nioh. 

Pronounced "Oh moo kah day". Literally "hundred-legs" in Japanese, this okai takes the form of a giant centipede. Normal centipedes are commonly encountered in forests and montains throughout Japan, and even at their small size pack enough poison in their bites to cause swelling or even paralysis. A giant yokai centipede, however, has fangs powerful enough to crush bone.

 

Great Centipede's appearance is that of a mutant centipede, with a face resembling a flaming skull, containing 2 huge horn-like mandibles protruding on both sides of its mouth. Japan is famous for having a large centipede called the "Mukade" that looks similar to this boss.

Strategy 1 (Melee)

Hope you like bugs. There is a poison mist in here, so you'll want to take the ladder to the planks and interact with the contraption. In its first phase, you want to quickly attack its legs, dodging any attacks. Be quick here when the opportunity presents itself. If it comes at you with its pincers just block it and keep attacking. In the second phase you want to get behind it and attack its legs again from low stance using light, fast attacks. When it turns around to face you, block its mouth attack, you'll suffer only minor damage. Then dodge to get back to its rear. If you continue to stay to its rear, you can prevent it from using any of its stronger attacks. 

 

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.



Wendell's Cheese Strategy

Take out the back legs and the posion rock it drops so there is no poison. then let it follow you to the ladder left of the starting area. if you go up the ladder it will turn aound and go around the corner and up the sloped path. before it goes around the corner you can do a drop down attack off the (wooden ledge) for 1000 damage it will never take its stamina down so  it will never get its back legs to come back. rinse wash and repreat. A variation on this strategy can be used to break its AI in the first phase. Getting on the tall ladder while it is on the ground floor allows you to get it into a movement loop based on your movement on the ladder. Once its in position near the grain fan, you can do a jump attack onto its back parts and almost immediately get them to scatter, making the fight much easier.

Attacks

Great Centipede has a single attack phase.

Chomp The creature chases after William with it's snapping jaws. The attack will cease if the player blocks it or takes damage
Poison Spew A ball of poison spewed at the player. Inflicts poison status
Paralysis Spew A purple cloud is spewed at the player. Inflicts paralysis status
Rock Puke A large rock is vomited at the player
Head Bash The Great Centipede smashes it's head to the ground, damaging anyone nearby. A quick dodge to the side opens up an easy damage opportunity

 

Yokai Lore / History

The centipede in Japan is associated with success in battle, so it was adopted as a symbol by the samurai. The great samurai Takeda Shingen had one on his battle flag, and these ceiling paintings from a small Bishamonten temple had several centipedes.

      A strategy that worked for me was as soon as the fight started, I ran up the ladder and across the planks around to the rock ledge on the left (from entrance) side of the chamber. Then I baited him into doing his ground slam, and then used high-stance heavy attacks until he died. I was able to block all of his spitting (the rock took all my ki, but it recharged before he could attack again). Only time I took damage was when he spit 2 Paralysis in a row and then a rock. I don't know if my armor added resistance, but if I blocked, one poison/paralysis spit wasn't enough to afflict their debuff.

        I've killed this boss dozens of times to farm fangs and I've never had a problem with the poison. It does so little damage and antidotes drop all over the place.

          If you want to.... you can... Get centipede to follow you to the ladder, climb up quickly, fall attack - as it walks underneath, go to ladder again... repeat. This also makes it easy to deal with poison as you are by the air cleaner :)
