Shisenin Kosen Boss Guide

This fight is fairly easy if you know how to use your kusarigama well. The best way to defeat the boss easily is to deplete its Ki, so hit it with strong kusarigama attacks, then do grapples and ground finishers for bigger damage. Block his attacks then strike him after his barrage.

Defeating Shisenin unlocks the mystic art for the dual katanas and a Kusarigama Master Trophy.
