Sarutobi Sasuke was a ninja who served under Sanada Yukimura.

      To my big surprise Aya-Komori and a ton of kunais did the trick. Using Aya-Komori via talisman at the right distance seems to instantly knock him to the ground even with full ki .. allowing you a very nice ground stabbing on that basterd.

        Use thrown weapons, he doesn't block them for some reason and eats the full damage. 21 kunais and 21 shurikens did the trick with a couple of ripostes.

          This boss isn't that hard, but you need to be careful with his cheap grapple attack. Block his projectiles and dodge his bombs jutsu. Buff yourself before entering the arena and don't hesitate to headshot him when he's far.

            How ironic: he's very strong vs paralysis, but he can be paralyzed using his set and thanks to the "6 pieces bonus", that is Status Ailment Augmentation (Paralysis) +29,10% at full familiarity.

              This? Hard?!
              I let him swing and miss, Low-stance dodged in, did a square-triangle combo (Kick for Ki kill) . He dodges away. I follow, do it again. 3 times total and he's out of ki. Grapple, IAI as he's getting up, repeat. This took 3 cycles and he didn't hit me once?! Didn't even need to break out the Sloth talisman!

                Daiba-washi is good cheese as usual, but it's not perfect on him. Dodge out of the way of his stupid fucking kick as he gets up and waif ro the next opening, the faster casting mystic art is super useful for this. You'll have him dead in no time if you're careful.
