One-eyed Imp Description

"One-eyed Imps are yokai who look like a little boy with a single large eye in the center of their face. Because of their unassuming size, they do not get in the way much, and some are even quite friendly. However, those who underestimate them as weak yokai with only the power to frighten might get a nasty shock if they venture too close.

Against opponents bearing Amrita, One-eyed impsuse their long tongues as a whip to attack. Each blow from their tongue steals some Amrita, which the One-eyed imp uses to grow larger and more powerful. If they must be fought, it is best to defeat them before this transformation advances too far."

 

Combat Information

  • Will mostly taunt and dodge attacks. Kusarigama is highly effective. 
  • If it hits you once, its speed will improve. If it hits you twice, it will transform into a One-Eyed Oni.
  • Licks will drain about 20% of your Amrita.
  • Throw kunai from a distance to quickly sap its ki and knock it down.
  • Ki can be drained quickly from kunai or from gunshots/arrows if it hasn't discovered you.
  • All damage done to the Imp carries over to the One-Eyed Oni form.
  • It drops more Amrita if killed in One-Eyed Oni form.

      This guy has a thing for dodging melee and countering you. You can tag him with a ranged attack. A shot to his eye usually insta kills him. You can defeat him easily with melee by walking up to him/sneaking, then combo.

        Be careful with these guys... If they steal your amrita and you die then all the amrita that they stole is gone for good, whether or not you retrieve your grave and kill them. Lost 50k to one earlier before realizing what happened.

          Absorbs Amrita from nearby enemies you hit or defeat. Can also hit you with it's tongue to steal your Amrita. If it absorbs enough, it will transform into a One-Eyed Oni.
