Since there is no item in the game that cures paralysis, you can try to use equipment that grants resistance to the status. Using a paralysis charm III completely nullifies the ailment. This makes it significantly easier to fight Viper Tobi-Kadachi.
Viper Tobi-Kadachi is an agile foe that constantly darts in and out of range when fought. Keep up with the monster by being mobile as well. Attack Viper Tobi-Kadachi from the side while strafing it to avoid most of its attacks. You will also be able to avoid its poisoned needle projectiles this way.
Use Wide-Swinging Weapons
It is generally easier to hit Viper Tobi-Kadachi using great swords, long swords, or charge blades thanks to their wide swing. You will need to pursue it more often as it moves around when using dual blades or sword and shield.
Use Shock Traps
Stopping Viper Tobi-Kadachi in its tracks briefly saves you the effort of having to chase it down. Stack as much damage as you can within the trap’s duration. Viper Tobi-Kadachi will gradually become resistant to shock traps if you use them too frequently. Keep this mind if you plan on capturing it.
