Stay on the move.
The best strategy against Great Izuchi is stay mobile and keep moving to its side. Do not stay in front of it for too long and you should avoid most of its attacks. Try to get a feel for how many hits you can get in before pulling back when Great Izuchi faces you again.
Great Izuchi will be accompanied by several lesser Izuchi. You can take out a few of Great Izuchi’s minions to make the fight more manageable. This allows you to take on Great Izuchi alone for a good period and preventing it from commanding its kin to perform its synchronized tail spins with it.
When Great Izuchi faces you with its arms stretched, be ready to dodge or run sideways to avoid its charge attack. The move does considerable damage and will knock you down.
Great Izuchi will lower itself while facing you and perform a 180-degree tail whip. Watch out for the windup and dodge away or behind it to avoid it.
Great Izuchi can perform a tail slam attack that hits targets directly in front of it. When you see it raise its head upwards, move to the side and the attack should miss you entirely.
Synchronized Tail Spin
Be careful when Great Izuchi raises its head and roars for a longer duration than usual. This is its command to its lesser kin to perform a group attack in the form of a series of tail spins. Move away from the group as it is easy to be overwhelmed by their sheer numbers during the attack.
