Strategy 1 (Melee)

Maria can be easily staggered in melee, so just pressure her and be sure to dodge her attacks. After losing ~30% health she will enchant her sword and become immune to staggering. She also will send a single wide shockwave from distance, which is hard to dodge due to hitbox but can easily be blocked, though it usually guard breaks you. Make sure to dodge A LOT when she's in second phase (enchanted sword), because she usually does long combos and capable of guard breaking you. Hit in between her combos. Easiest way is to bait her shockwave, dodge forward through it and land a couple of hits. Low stance helps a lot because you will spend most of the fight dodging her attacks.

Strategy 2 (Ranged weapons)


Maria, being human, is easily staggered by gunshots and arrows to the head. Shoot her before she enchants her weapon (or directly after if you're quick enough) and she will drop to the ground. Run up to do a final blow. Repeat until dead.

Strategy 3 (Ki damage)


Maria is resilient to ki damage but because of her aggressiveness, she burns through it rather quickly. Use this to your advantage. When she shoots out the amrita waves, dodge through them until you are close to her and hit her with a blast as she recovers. Only one blast as she will interrupt you if you try another one. When she is up close, dodge and use sword ki to chip away at her ki. When her ki is gone, charge your Iai attack and hit her to knock her down and then use final blow.

Yokai Lore / History

Maria is a Spanish woman who served by the side of Date Masamune, the conqueror of Oshu. With the Date family's deep ties to Spain, it was said that many Spaniards earned Masamune's favour, including an envoy of the king of Spain, who received an audience with him. However, Maria's blonde—haired beauty belie her sharp wit and vision; she is no ordinary attendant.

In reality, she is an undercover spy whose mission was to create chaos in Japan in order to capture Amrita and use it for the glory of Spain. Since its naval defeat to England, the Spanish Empire was a shadow of its former self, and hoped to use Amrita to regain its status as a world power. However, thanks to William's efforts, Masamune's rebellion was quelled and Maria was forced into hiding. However, her words upon departing hinted at much greater chaos and discord yet to come.

Maria is highly skilled with a rapier, and is also capable of sorcery using the power of Amrita. She can also use techniques that resemble ninjutsu, causing Hanzo to describe her as a Spanish ninja. Her primary objective is to complete her mission, and as such she prefers to avoid conflict, but her skills in battle should not be taken lightly.

      Looks like I Found the Motive of Maria.

      in the Yamaoka Sohachi's Novel "Tokugawa Ieyasu", a Caucassian Woman named as "Minamitsuki no Kata(南樹の方 : I Dont know this is the Right Reading because i can't found the Damn Yomigana of this Word)" has appear as Date Masamune's Spanish concubine. her real name is "Maria" too.

      Yep. Maria is Motivated by "Fictional" Character.

        It's Lady Maria of the Spanish Clocktower!!


        Okay seriously, this is such a difficult but incredibly fun boss fight. I didn't use Ninjutsu, Onmyo magic, nor Living Weapon throughout the entire fight, and it felt like I was pitted against an incredible master of speed and sword. I can't wait to see what else she has in store for the later DLCs.
