Flying Bolt is an Enemy in Nioh.
Flying Bolt Description
"Flying Bolt is a female yokai with a long bolt of cotton cloth wrapped around her. As the white cloth resembles a funereal shroud, she is thought to be the demonic transformation of a resentful soul whose funeral service did not send her to the next world. Her respectably blackened teeth suggest that she was married and of high station of life."
"Flying Bolt floats in the air and attacks with her cloth as if it were a blade. The Japanese name is Ittan-momen. "Momen" means cotton, while "ittan" is a measure of length in the world of Japanese clothing: just enough fabric to make an adult kimono. But no matter how much of Ittan-momen's bolt of cloth is cut away, she never runs out, indicating that the cloth itself is not of this world."
- Blocking is mostly effective except for the one unblockable grab that is telegraphed by a black and white cloud.
- While having no AoE attacks, if hit, these attacks can slow you down dramatically.
- Ninjutsu tips
- While having no known weaknesses, it is still susceptible to confusion and ki damage. Drain its ki and it will go down, leaving it open for a final blow.
Notes & Trivia
- Kanji: Yomikata - 一反木綿 kunyomi - いったんもめん
- While considered a yokai in game, in Japanese folklore, it would be considered a tsukumogami, a tool that acquired a spirit living in them after many years.
- Literally translates to "one tan" or roughly 28.8cm by 10m of cotton. Based off the Ittan-momen of Japanese folklore. This yokai was originally depicted as a narrow sheet of cloth that strangles or smothers humans. Unlike most tsukumogami, this one is generally vicious and will attack humans without reserve.
