Strategy 1 (Melee)

In the first Phase, dodge its attacks and striking its legs immediately.

The second phase, one good aproach is to reach for its back and deliver several quick blows on its legs. Perform a block when he's about to strike with its mouth so that you only suffer less damage. Repeat the same process of avoiding its mouth and it will eventually go down.

Yokai Lore / History

Yasuke was a samurai of black African origin who served under the Japanese hegemon and warlord Oda Nobunaga in 1581 and 1582. The name "Yasuke" was granted to him by Nobunaga, although why and when is unclear. His original name is not recorded in any known source, so it is unclear if Yasuke is a Japanese rendering of his previous name, or a wholly new name granted by his lord.

      This guy is really easy compared to some of the previous boss fights, he does hit hard, but you can recover easy enough and he keeps spamming a predictable jump move that leaves him open for easy hits. You even have a bunch of pillars to serve as a wall if needed. He will use a sword later and become faster, but it's manageable, and he will go back to his slow axe moves later, which makes no sense. You can spam some nice damage buffs before entering. When he transforms, you can hit him a little during his animation. Make use of low stance when he uses living weapon and stops staggering, he moves quite slow, plenty of time to escape with hit and run.

          I really like how, like William, as a foreigner he has a foreign Guardian Spirit. William has the Celtic Saorsie, and Yasuke has the African Atlas Bear.

            Another samurai fight, with nothing in particular beyond he hits pretty hard. Just the same strategy: strike when ki is low and get a grapple attack.

                His A.I. is a little broken. (attention, I played the 1.01 version.. don't know if this A.I. problem still persists in 1.02+)
                You can run away from him and walk between the pillars - if his sight to you is interrupted for a specific time, he don't know where you are.
                Causing him to walk back at his "spawn point" infront of that grave (or chest?) like these normal enemies do, he will wait until he sees you. From that, you have plenty time to backstab him. Repeat that and you won't have any problems with this boss fight.
