Trophy Guide for Nioh is located on this page. This page will be updated with more information as it becomes available.

Tips for Nioh's Trophy List

Complete all missions

You will need to complete all missions, including Main Missions, Sub Missions, Twilight Missions, and Master Missions.

Only 2 Twilight Missions are presented each day, and to start one you must have beaten the normal version of that mission first. Keep an eye out for Twilight Missions that you haven't finished yet, and try to beat them as they are available. It is possible to finish the entire game and still have Twilight Missions that you're waiting to appear. 

If you're planning on 100% Completion, you will also have to complete all missions in New Game Plus modes "Way of the Strong" and "Way of the Demon"

Collect all Kodama and bathe in every Hot Spring.

You will need to collect all Kodama and bathe in every Hot Spring. It's recommended to be extremely thorough in every level to make sure you don't skip any of these. Missions do show Kodama counters, but it's difficult to know where a hot spring was missed.

Save your money

You will need to spend a lot of money at the Blacksmith to unlock "Regular Smith Customer" trophy. It is recommended to sell all equipment drops and save your money for use at the Blacksmith.

Special Note: This trophy can take a very long time, and if you make it through the missions quickly you will have time to work through much of the DLC trophies before you finish it.

Communicate (Use a Gesture) with Nurikabe

You will need to "communicate" with 10 Yokai along the way. To do this you must use the right color gesture in front of a Nurikabe, which will cause it to bow to you.  There are 3 rows of gestures colored red, yellow, and blue. You get 2 chances before the Nurikabe attacks, so you have a 2/3rd chance of succeeding. This is easy to accomplish along the way so long as you remember to try when you get the chance.

Use all weapon types to increase proficiency

You will need to acquire the Mystic Art for each possible type of weapon. Mystic arts require a minimum of 500,000 proficiency before you can access the necessary mission. After completing the Dojo Mission, you must purchase a Mystic Art from the skill tree to unlock the trophy. Proficiency can be farmed fairly easily, but it's recommended to start working on this early on as you're getting used to combat, that way you get a chance to experience all weapon types and find what works best for you.

Fight Revenants

If you're aiming for 100% trophy completion, you will want to start farming Glory early as 70,000 glory is required to purchase a female skin from the Teahouse to complete the "Female Impersonator" trophy. It's recommended to fight Revenants as often as you feel comfortable throughout your play, that way it doesn't become a Glory grind later on.
