Strategy 1 (Melee)

When battle starts, focus on one head at a time. Keep a distance from it and attack its neck after its dash. If it misses you, proceed to deliver some blows to the head with the high stance to achieve the best possible damage output. Use hit-and-run strategy of guard, since it has a several guaranteed shots which you cannot block.

It also is important to note that, the way the fight works is that after you kill a third head the entire arena will be destroyed and you will be open to attacks from all of the heads. As such it might be important to not actually kill anyone of the following heads (after the second) and just get them down low enough that you can either shoot them with your range attacks or just hit them.

      Once again, Late-Game magic absolutely wrecks this boss. Each head takes 3~ Shot Talismans (as long as they hit its actual head and not the body) to kill, so if you bring 9 of each and take good aim you can beat this boss without even needing Sacred Brushes. I did this at 50 magic with the Genbu Spirit.

        Glitch on last two of the dragons, they just wiggle and takes no damages. Game just sucks on Status reductions on weapon and armor level.

            Tricking Orochi into destroying the large amrita stones around the arena releases orbs of light that eventuall will gather and stun one head.
