Defeating Kojiro

The duel against Kojiro is arguably the most challenging fight in the game. It is recommended to have increased your maximum health by visiting as many hot springs as you can as Kojiro can easily kill you in a few hits. Try to have your sword and armor significantly upgraded before facing Kojiro as well.

Being able to consistently perform perfect parries and perfect dodges will up your chance of defeating Kojiro. The attacks that you should watch for and deflect are his one-handed (or two-handed) sword thrust and running double slash. For parrying the latter, wait until he misses with the first strike before parrying the second one.

Kojiro will also throw out a variety of unblockable attacks during the fight. One of his most damaging ones is his triple slash that will usually kill you or leave you with very little health if he connects all strikes. Try to get the timing down of his unblockable attacks, especially the advancing sword draw slash to perform a perfect dodge that you can follow up with a devastating counterattack.

This fight is all about baiting out Kojiro to swing first before getting in one to three hits and going on the defensive again. Pummel him with Heaven Strike or Dance of Wrath when you have enough Resolve to chip away at his health and he should go down eventually.
