Hi-Nezumi is the Guardian Spirit of Kikkawa Hiroie.
Guardian Spirits can be chosen to provide the player with certain benefits.
Activate Living Weapon by pressing + (B + Y on Xbox/Steam controller) when the Amrita Gauge is full.


Pronounced "HEE-neh-zoo-mee." The Hi-nezumi lends strength to those possessing the will to face difficult
problems head-on. In the famed "Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," one of the objects Princess Kaguya asks her would-be suitors to acquire is a Hi-nezumi fur coat. One suitor tried to take the easy route of purchasing such a coat, and failed the task. Perhaps he would have succeeded if he had faced the challenge with enough determination that a real Hi-nezumi had come to his aid.

How to Obtain

Strategies and Notes

  • Living weapon ability: Hi-nezumi scurries across the ground in a triangular pattern and scatters three fire mines on the floor. If activated by an enemy, they explode and cause heavy burn build-up. If Hi-nezumi contacys a human enemy directly, they are stunned and knocked to the ground instantly, allowing for a follow-up ground stab.
  • The Guardian Spirit Talisman effect involves Hi-Nezumi laying three Fire traps in front of the player. These traps will detonate instantly if the enemy is already in front of you. Nezumi's traps inflict high Burning build up but deal very little damage. A single mine is not enough to inflict the burn debuff
  • Hi-Nezumi is a stealth oriented Guardian Spirit and has a very high Amrita Gauge Rate.
