Yoki is an Enemy in Nioh.
"A human turned fiend by the power of Amrita. Also known as a form of oni, a muscular, horned humanoid dwelling in the mountains. The Shuten-doji is the most famous; so too are the oni who are fought by Momotaro, the Peach Boy. Every February in Japan, a ritual called Setsubun is undertaken where citizens scatter beans to drive away oni and pray for good health."
"The power of Amrita is double-edged sword. If used improperly, or with evil intent, it has the power to transform the user into a fiend. A fiend is far stronger than a human, but devoid of rationality, they can only follow their instincts to attack any who happen across their path."
- Try and knock off their horns, this will drain them of Ki and cause them to fall. For this you can use a ranged weapon or any attack capable of hitting their horns. This also guarentees that Demon's Horns drop.
- Blocking is effective but drains a lot of stamina
- These enemies have long reach and a treacherous shoulder bash
- Can burn, so Kayaku-dama is a good projectile to use against them
- Not weak to any particular magic, but easily poisoned with two poison shuriken.
- They will lose Ki if you throw Salt at them. Whenever they create a pool of Yokai Real, perform a purification as soon as possible
- Can be lured out, kited, and eventually resets to original position without regenerating health.
- Most often attacks with 2-hit Combo basic attacks, or will rage swipe.
