|??||??||The Demon of Mount Hiei|
White Tiger is a Boss in Nioh. Pronounced BYAH-koh. The White Tiger is one of the four legendary beast-gods of the cardinal directions, said to be protector of the West. It takes the form of a magnificent tiger covered in gleaming white fur. Traditionally worshipped alongside the Blue Dragon of the East, the Vermillion Bird of the South, and the Black Turtle of the North. After the shield around Mount Hiei was broken, it released the aratama fiends, which subsumed a yokai cat known as a Nekomata and transformed it into the White Tiger.
A combination of Byakko and a Nekomata, the White Tiger has the face of a cat, body of a large dog and split tails.

Strategy 1 (Melee)Buff weapon with Water. A solid strategy to attack himfrom the side. When he uses Scratch there is a major opening where you can dash forward and get beside him to punish him. Avoid staying behind as he has a one shot ability to grab you between his tails. Keep moving around him and not letting him get the chance to catch you. Don't get too greedy with those hits or you'll regret it. When he is below 50% HP your Guardian Spirit should be able to take care of the rest.

White Tiger has two attack phases. In the first phase, it chases the player down with pounces and claw swipes. In the second phase, it gathers energy in the spirit stone in its right eye socket, gaining the ability to shoot deadly lasers.
|Tail Bash and Grab||Slams it's tails down on any players behind it, then uses its tails to grab them and throw them to the ground. You can avoid the grab even if you get hit with the tail bash.|
|Scratch||Swings either one of his arms down (can combo up to 3 swings).|
|Pounce||Tenses up, then flies across the arena, damaging anything in its way. Dodge to the side at the last moment.|
|Flip||Does a back flip, smacking the player with its tails.|
|Spin Attack||Spins around to hit players at its sides or rear. Keep your distance once you see the cue for this.|
|Eye Beam||Charges energy in its right eye, then shoots out a laser and sweeps it across the ground in front of it. Side-stepping this attack is not too difficult.|
|Flame Dart||Jumps and does a somersault while shooting flaming projectiles at the player.|
Yokai Lore / HistoryI'm mythology, the White Tiger was a guardian deity that was associated with the West. In Chinese lore, it is said that the White Tiger only appears if the emperor rules with absolute virtue or if the entire world is in a state of peace.
