Wheelmonk Description

"A yokai like a wheel with a gigantic face attached to it. The wheel is big enough to be used on an oxcart, and while the face has a certain degree of freedom to leap from it they remain tied to it by their hair. Wreathed in flames and scowling hideously as they roll around, the face resembles a visitor from another world, and has long struck terror onto the hearts of those who witness them."

"They have awful destructive power and attack by ramming their bodies engulfed in flames or by spitting fire from their mouths. Depending on where they appear, they can also start fires in the surrounding area, which can rapidly grow into raging infernos."

 

Combat Information

  • Blocking is ineffective due to fire damage. Hitting it in the rear (where the amrita stone is exposed) after baiting its fire spray will instantly knock it down. Salt also knocks it down instantly.
  • AOE fire attack after a few seconds of no ki
  • Ninjutsu tips
  • Sloth talisman

 

Notes & Trivia

  • 輪入道: Wa nyūdō- Wheel priest. A giant man's head trapped in a flaming oxen wheel. They often are seen patrolling for the wicked, dragging any sinners they find back to Hell for judgment. Because of the torment the suffer, they take great pleasure in the pain of others.

      After make hating these mobs, I found they are much easier to kill than I realized. They will frequently charge up a son then dash at you. If you dodge and let them hit a wall behind you, they'll get knocked down long enough to get about three hits in. They do a burst of flame when they stand up, so you'll want to pull back after about three hits unless you plan to just eat the fire damage they burst. You can also sneak in hits in between their casual movements and fire breaths.

        Hitting them with salt will knock them down too. That and arrow/rifle are the only ways to take them out without taking fire damage.

          Hitting it with a range weapon whilst it's moving before engaging will knock the Wheel monk down.
          I haven't tried slowing it down or paralysis yet, so I'm not sure if they work on it.
          Encountered on the 2nd side mission (the one after the bandits) of the Fishing Village, there's two in the village, if I remember it correctly.
