Janomecho is the Guardian Spirit of Otani Yoshitsugu and later, Sanada Yukimura.
Guardian Spirits can be chosen to provide the player with certain benefits.
Activate Living Weapon by pressing △ + O (B + Y on Xbox/Steam controller) when the Amrita Gauge is full.
Pronounced "Jah-no-may-CHO". A humanoid Guardian Spirit possessing butterfly wings and antennae, Janomecho is said to have a strong connection with death and the soul, and that all who speak its real name die— hence why people call it Janomecho, a type of butterfly known as "minois dryas" in English. Samurai would often pray to it before heading into battle, believing it would bestow great power upon those willing to risk their lives for glory.
How to Obtain
Strategies and Notes
- Unique Skill: Janomecho flies a short distance and summons a stationary tornado, which inflicts pure Wind damage and will persist for around 10 seconds. To activate, press △ + O (B + Y on Xbox/Steam controller) while Living Weapon is active OR use either the Guardian Spirit Talisman Onmyo Magic or a Moment Talisman.
- Although Janomecho first appears in the base game during "Sekigahara", it only becomes available as a Guardian Spirit with the Bloodshed's End DLC.
- Janomecho's powers strengthen those near death, which fits into the lore of Otani Yoshitsugu and Sanada Yukimura.
