Greater Demon Hunting is a Mission in Nioh.
Outstanding! I am the one called Sakata Kintoki. I am dead now, but in life I was renowned as a demon slayer. Of late, the demons in the okai Realm are restless. I was just considering silencing that one by force when you appeared. A samurai from a foreign land, slaying Japanese demons - what would my lord Yorimitsu think? Here, Take my Katana, consider it a token of thanks for the entertainment. Let us meet again another time.

Greater Demon Hunting Walkthrough
This is essentially a boss rehash with higher stats and an NPC companion. The boss arena is the same as in all other Yokai Underworld missions, so use the uneven terrain to keep your distance when healing is necessary.
The boss in this mission is Onryoki, but don't get cocky just because he was the 1st boss of the game. The health and damage of this iteration has been incerased dramatically, making this a fight of endurance. Even when meeting level requirements and wearing the highest tier armor available, the demon's attacks can knock off up to 80% of your health, so don't get greedy and try not to get caught in a combo. During one attempt, Onryoki managed to deplete all of William's health when doing a bellyflop onto Sakata and having its giant foot graze William's face.
Unlike previous versions of Onryoki in the game so far, this one doesn't have the balls and chains or the 1st phase moveset at all, so you will be dealing with the 2nd phase moveset throughout the entire fight.
The NPC accompanying you during this fight is Sakata Kintoki, an axe wielding samurai who dwells within the underworld after supposedly dying a long time ago. He will only join the fight after you knock off at least 10% of Onryoki's health and is genuinely helpful considering how much damage he can do (500 - 700 on average). However, like most NPC companions, he tends to go down easily and you'll need to revive him fairly often. He is fairly aggressive and rarely spends time blocking so Onryoki will try to kill him as quickly as possible. If you want to try and make this fight easier, use poison when you can since this boss is weak to it.
