Oni-bi Description

"Oni-bi resemble floating balls of fire. They are formed when the elemental power of fire, water, wind, lightning, or earth coalesces around the will of a dead soul. They must be dinstinguished from the souls known as Hitodama that burn on once their bodies are no more; Oni-bi are yokai, plain and simple."

"Oni-bi literally means "demon fire", but they can be made of water, wind, lightning, or earth as well. Striking an Oni-bi with a weapon like a katana will temporarily give that weapon the elemental power of the Oni-bi."

 

Combat Information

  • As per the description, hitting an Oni-bi with any melee weapon grants their element to that weapon for a limited time.
  • Oni-bi have very little health, and can be engaged aggressively.
  • These floating heads are capable of ignoring terrain, hovering outside melee reach to launch fireballs.  Be patient until the creature is above walkable ground.
  • Blocking is largely irrelevant against Oni-bi.  Their main attacks do little damage, and their health is insufficient to survive trading hits.  Dodging or allowing oneself to take one blow in order to deliver one or two is a sound strategy.
  • Oni-bi have a projectile attack, but nothing with either great area of effect or particular power.
  • Shuriken or Kunai can kill an Oni-bi easily.  These weapons are limited, however, and Oni-bi are easily dispatched by rushing them with any melee weapon.
  • Being within touch of the Oni-bi will stagger you while you attempt to attack. Be within poking distance if dispatching them with melee attacks.
