The Battle of Ohashi Bridge is a Mission in Nioh

"I find this hard to believe, but.. It seems that a giant ghost has appeared at Ohashi bridge and is attacking those who cross and stealing their weapons. If it were yokai, that would be one thing...but how can a ghost attack people? William, will you get to the bottom of this for me?" Hattori Hanzo

The Battle of Ohashi Bridge Walkthrough

 This is a mini boss with a ghostly warrior that is never seen in the main game. Instead of using the entire bridge like in the Bridge of Bone mission, you will only have half of the area to run around him. Try not to back up too much because you will inevitably hit the gray yokai wall that gets erected once the fight starts. The camera will get far too close to William when this happens and it gets harder to see any enemies coming at you. 

Keep in mind that this fight is going to be long. You can try to knock the ghost warrior off of the bridge at the area of the broken rails, but this technique can be unreliable, the goal is to exhaust his ki and perform a critical hit. The warrior uses an axe throughout the entire battle and will use ranged weapons when you're far away. Do not try to unload full combos into him because not all attacks will stagger him, making hit and run tactics viable. When in high stance, the warrior will try to use a  two swing combo and the final swing can track the player, so dodge at the last possible second or block if your ki wasn't already reduced by the previous swing. The warrior will also use skills such as Battle Focus to decrease ki consumption.

On higher difficulties such as Way of the Strong, a Raven Tengu accompanies the warrior.

      Now all revenants cannot be knocked off edges. They will be teleported back inland when they are falling off.

        I'm surprised nobody mentioned this yet, but the boss in this quest is the revenant of Musashibo Benkei, the warrior monk companion of Minamoto no Yo****sune.

          Why are we here? Just to suffer?

          Just to let you know, as if the time I have posted this comment, it is indeed possible to just knock this punk off the bridge. I wa assure it wasn't as he would roll away from the ledge whenever I got close.

            You can actually shot him in the head from afar, that way you'll be outside the yokai wall when the battle starts. Then you can just cheese him out, he won't be able to reach you.

              He was kicking my butt using a sword. I switched to a spear and high stance using the over head smash skill followed up with a critical hit on the ground got him down pretty easy. I Started swinging as he was approaching.

                Take it slow, don't rush him. One hit at a time. When he's down to 50% keep throwing pots at him that keep him from using item boosts, otherwise he will use potions to heal himself. When those two skulls spawn, immediately move away from all three enemies and take the skulls out first. The skulls can crowd you if you let them hang around too long and distract you while he's prepping his axe to finish you off.

                  Take note of what he takes, if an armor icon appears, he is stagger proof. Be very careful until it wears off. There is merit to being near him as you can cancel his item use with a combo. Take note of his charge slam. You can't stagger it and it may one shot you. He will flash when he charges it. You can start the battle with a head shot, then you can ground execute him after he passes out. If you are tired of him/keep losing. You can knock him off the bridge. High attack of kusigarna( combo) is good for this. However you will loose items.

                    I'm pretty sure this is Benkei, given his stance on the bridge and the fact that you get the warrior monk hammer as loot.

                      Hard time with him! Got him with a long hit'n run with spear, high stance, square attacks all the way. This way you have enough range to attack safely. Switched to sword for the skulls. Onmyo magic and ninjutsu is useful to retaliate when he uses his bow.

                        Tactic: Just be careful. He has a ton of HP, but the predictable heavy axe moveset and two skulls spawing halfway through. Just chip away his health after he attacks. Sloth Talismans help. You might even be able to knock him of the bridge.

                          If you've notice, this mission is similar to the series of Final Fantasy's "Clash on the Big Bridge". The Boss is similar to Gilgamesh, large build, big weapons, and drops the "Genji armor set". Around half way through the fight, 2 wind spirits appear as if they were to be Enkidu.
