Wheelmonk Description

"A yokai like a wheel with a gigantic face attached to it. The wheel is big enough to be used on an oxcart, and while the face has a certain degree of freedom to leap from it they remain tied to it by their hair. Wreathed in flames and scowling hideously as they roll around, the face resembles a visitor from another world, and has long struck terror onto the hearts of those who witness them."

"They have awful destructive power and attack by ramming their bodies engulfed in flames or by spitting fire from their mouths. Depending on where they appear, they can also start fires in the surrounding area, which can rapidly grow into raging infernos."

 

Combat Information

  • Blocking is ineffective due to fire damage. Hitting it in the rear (where the amrita stone is exposed) after baiting its fire spray will instantly knock it down. Salt also knocks it down instantly.
  • AOE fire attack after a few seconds of no ki
  • Ninjutsu tips
  • Sloth talisman
  • A kunai or arrow can stun it if they hit the yellow weak point. Same goes for melee attacks
  • Weapons with decent break stat can knock it to 0 ki in high stance after a small combo

Attacks

  • Charge: spins in place to gather power, then rushes forward, leaving a trail of flames. It can travel a good distance, and it is recommended to side-step it
  • Slow Roll :if approached while not fire-breathing, chances are it will roll over you.
  • Fire-breath : stops and spews flames at medium range, horizontally in front of it. Generally does two in a row, it is unblockable, but deals low damage. When it starts breathing fire, either dodge or tank it, then try to kill it fast before or while it does the second breath. This attack is a good opportunity because it stays in place and won't roll over you while doing it
  • Exposion : it is a wake-up attack, upon being knocked down, it will explode seconds later and get back to its "feet"

 

Notes & Trivia

  • 輪入道: Wa nyūdō- Wheel priest. A giant man's head trapped in a flaming oxen wheel. They often are seen patrolling for the wicked, dragging any sinners they find back to Hell for judgment. Because of the torment the suffer, they take great pleasure in the pain of others.

      A wheel monk can deal big damage, but it also looses stamina quickly. if it's rolling , let it roll. Wait it out, it's stamina will deplete by a lot or it will knock itself out if a wall is bumped, if it's just hovering, hit it a little, then back up and let it breathe fire, then hit it again. Once it's knocked out, don't take full advantage of it, unless you can already kill it. It will wake up and recover ki with a fire explosion.

        After make hating these mobs, I found they are much easier to kill than I realized. They will frequently charge up a son then dash at you. If you dodge and let them hit a wall behind you, they'll get knocked down long enough to get about three hits in. They do a burst of flame when they stand up, so you'll want to pull back after about three hits unless you plan to just eat the fire damage they burst. You can also sneak in hits in between their casual movements and fire breaths.

          Hitting them with salt will knock them down too. That and arrow/rifle are the only ways to take them out without taking fire damage.

            Hitting it with a range weapon whilst it's moving before engaging will knock the Wheel monk down.
            I haven't tried slowing it down or paralysis yet, so I'm not sure if they work on it.
            Encountered on the 2nd side mission (the one after the bandits) of the Fishing Village, there's two in the village, if I remember it correctly.
