Nurarihyon is a Guardian Spirit of Date Masamune, previously owned by Kojuro Kagetsuna.
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.


In Japanese lore, the Nurarihyon takes the shape of an old man with a short stature, an oddly elongated head, and often elegant clothing. This rather benign image belies its true nature as an incredibly powerful yokai, and is even called "the Supreme Commander of All Monsters". Its presence is such that all yokai listen to the Nurarihyon's every word with respect and treat him has their leader. This effect even extends to humans, as when a Nurarihyon slips into a busy household to indulge himself on food and drink, the humans are very much unable to stop him as they treat him as though he is the master of the house.

How to Obtain

Strategies and Notes

  • The Guardian Spirit Talisman effect involves Nurarihyon summoning 3 water puddles, which deal continuous elemental damage. This spell can deal vey good damage if you force the enemy into the puddles.
  • Nurarihyon is designed to make the most out of a Water oriented build, while also raising Amrita gains.
